Pastor John Samuel Barnett is in the Holy City of Jerusalem today. He teaches, from a rooftop, about King David’s temptation and giving in to his unguarded moment of Bathsheba. Pastor Barnett teaches on how we are to flee those unguarded moments.
 
Pastor John Samuel Barnett is on a boat in the Sea of Galilee as he teaches on Hebrews 6 and on the cities of refuge in the OT and how they relate to our refuge in Jesus Christ.
 
 
Acts 12. As you enjoy today’s video from Pastor John Samuel Barnett in the Holy Land, realize the current setting the group is in – a toppled pagan temple. The temple wasn’t destroyed by a violent uprising or disenfranchised voter block. It was destroyed because a small group of Christians followed the command of their Lord and Savior to go out into the whole world and make disciples in the name of the Triune God!
 
What lessons are to be learned from this? Pastor Barnett has a few but if “all the oceans ink and all men scribes…” how the seas would dry up and we still have more to learn! Praise the Almighty and the One who turns the whole world upside down!
 
The Old Testament book of Isaiah has been called “The Fifth Gospel”. Isaiah proclaims the truth of the pre-incarnate Christ as he has a direct, life altering encounter with Him (Isaiah 6). He goes on to talk about a Remnant of God’s Holy People that has an immediate application for Israel but then telescopes out to God’s future Church with Jesus Christ as the Head.
 
But Isaiah also has a strong message throughout his writings on the coming Prince of Peace, the Holy God, the Savior of the world. Today, Pastor John Samuel Barnett uses the Holy Land that Isaiah stood on and that hundreds of years later Jesus Christ would fulfill those words and stand on that same land as the incarnate God-Man. The illustrations that Isaiah speaks about, Pastor Barnett shows in his teaching today so that we can see what the people of Isaiah’s day, and Christ’s day would see as illustrations of the truth of the love of our holy and great God. Do you know this Savior? Do you proclaim and praise His love and truth?
 
Psalm 19. Happy Friday, all. Today we close out the last part of Pastor John Samuel Barnett‘s series of David’s Life in the Psalms. This lesson, Pastor Barnett, talks about the psalm and what David does when he feels alone. Even when surrounded by a large group of people we can also feel alone – even in the Church. Let us all take a lesson from King David and focus on God’s Works and His Word. We worship a God who is always there and never forsakes His Children.
 
1 Samuel 21. Pastor John Samuel Barnett provides a wonderful lesson on how we should give our treasures to God as it is God who provides us with everything.
 
Psalm 13. It’s interesting to see David’s plee to YHWH in this Psalm and how much it matches Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane. We can learn from both men of The Book that the strongest and most humble thing we can do when face troubles is seeking God’s help on our knees first. It is a joyous mystery that the Creator of the universe is mindful of us. Let us rejoice and be glad!
Psalm 51. Pastor John Samuel Barnett gives a great walkthrough of the psalm about David and his Spirit inspired truth about his sin and all our sin.
 

Psalm 18. Just as with turning to God first when we face trials and tribulation; do you turn to God first after being delivered? It’s easy when it’s not pulling out from a green light only to see a car run the red light that would have smashed you. What about after troubles at work or with family. What about times after health scares or financial ones?

 
Do you have the same joy fro deliverance that David does to immediately proclaim God as Lord? Do you respond in truth what James says in 1:2-4, “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing”?
 
Let us greet God with joy and thanksgiving in all that takes place.
 
Psalm 3. Pastor John Samuel Barnett teaches on David’s psalm of strife and fear with Absalom, his attacking son, and other enemies. But David is not without hope and the Lord provides him with one of the biggest signs of faith during troubled times – trusting the Lord to provide in the simple act of sleep. Does your life outwardly reflect faith in the God who says that He will provide for you?
