We want to take the time to express our deepest thanks and gratitude to our partners who helped make the FaithFire Freedom Tailgate a success.
We set out to glorify God and allow Him to touch the hearts of His people.
Here's the message from tonight, in case you'd like to read it for yourself:
I truly believe there is something prophetic about our being in Eden.
I asked the Lord why He wanted the ministry to start here.
And I believe I heard Him say, "It all started in Eden didn't it?"
There's a lot that happened in Eden.
And a lot we lost.
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.”
Genesis 1:27-31 NIV
My, how far we’ve fallen.
The cost of sin is everywhere around us.
We don’t enjoy the peace and communion with God and each other as it was designed.
What happened in ancient Eden set off a cataclysm of consequences. We inherited the sin of our ancestors. The first of mankind.
“When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.”
Genesis 3:6 NIV
We’re just like them.
You know they say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
We’re just like our earthly daddy and momma.
But God wants us to be like Him.
He wants you to be free.
“So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, “Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.””
Genesis 3:14-15 NIV
We can’t help it.
But God knew that.
And He made a way out.
Jesus volunteered before the world began
He volunteered before you were born
To bruise the head of the devil.
He died for your sins.
The devil thought he had the upper hand.
But it was all part of God’s plan to bring you home in your heart.
He wants you to choose Him.
And you can do it right now by putting your faith in Jesus.
The Bible says he was bruised for your sins.
That he was wounded for your mistakes.
And by those wounds he heals you.
-FIRST ALTAR CALL-
Now we're also in Rockingham County tonight.
Shout out to all the Rockingham County natives!
Rockingham is a name used for several things.
Rockingham Avenue is the street where OJ Simpson lived before the new owner tore it down.
We're all familiar with "The Rock" the speedway in Richmond that's now defunct.
There's also a former race track in New Hampshire. It's now a horsetrack.
Things started well.
But fell apart.
If that's you, keep listening.
There's also the man Rockingham County is named after.
A man who was known in the 1700s as Lord Rockingham.
