Sermons by Michael Marcus
Michael describes how God takes us through transition in our lives and is faithful through it all – our choice is how we choose to see these transition times and trust God. We look at the story of Moses taking the Israelites through the Red Sea to understand what it means to trust God for the miraculous. Exodus 14.
How are we able to rise up from a background of brokenness, while we are still living in a culture who rejects God? As Michael unfolds the story of king Hezekiah we learn that with God we can rise up and even change the culture around us with heaven’s influence.
Michael describes that we truly have God’s protection, comfort and care over our lives; what does it mean to rise up and take hold of these truths personally.
Michael talked about the power of testimony. In his preach he explained what a testimony is, why we need testimonies, biblical examples of testimonies and gave some personal testimonies.
Do you have a mountain that you want to see moved? Michael challenges us from the powerful story of Moses speaking to the rock to bring out water – that we can too speak to our mountains and see amazing things happen in the name of the Lord.
God uses dreams and visions in lots of different ways to help his people, we should continue to ask God for dreams and keep a note of those we think are significant. Michael shared on Sunday about some of the dreams that he has had in his life and that he has written down and these have helped him to make decisions to respond to circumstances and people. Dreams display the power of God, can bring us strength and hope…
Are you on the back foot and timid when we need to preach the gospel? We don’t need to worry or be afraid, as we have the Holy Spirit and He will help us stand up and speak out. This week Michael Marcus challenges us to be bold and seek to spread the word of God. Act 4, Proverbs 28:1
Michael shares the keys to what it means to live by The Word of God and how God’s living word frees us, grows us and fuels our lives through Christ.
In Romans 14 the Apostle Paul tells us to accept our brothers that are weak. Eating or not eating meat or observing special festive days do not make us more spiritual than other brothers. Michael uses this powerful passage to bring home that the Kingdom of God is not in eating or drinking but in Righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
In our modern society, the word obedience and honor have negative connotations that are often associated with social control. But the Bible says “Children obey your parents; honor your father and mother so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life”. Michael continues our series on the book of Ephesians using personal experience and testimonies to expose Ephesians 6:1-9.
The love of God is far greater than tongue or pen can ever tell; it goes beyond the highest star,and reaches to the lowest hell. In this message, Micheal passionately explains what the Love of God is and how to embrace the gift of love in the person of Jesus Christ.
As humans we possess 5 senses; sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch. Of all the senses, the touch places us in direct contact and intimate connection with our world. If we as humans can significantly influence our world through touch how much more “the touch of God”? In this message Michael speaks about what, when and the result of the touch of God using 7 different examples from the Bible.
Are you a faith champion like Elijah – passionate for God but then confronted with the challenges of life? Familiarity as they say breeds contempt, however believers need to guard against performance and rather serve God in truth and in Spirit. Michael explores the riches of the text in 1 Kings 19:1-18 and unfolds some daily practical applications relevant to our Christian walk.
To understand the battle, we need to begin with acknowledging that we are in a war. As Christians, we are in a spiritual battle of some sort on a daily basis. Jesus has equipped us as believers with the authority to trample upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy with a promise that nothing will harm us. Our spiritual battles and warfare are real, even though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging…
What does the gift of tongues (speaking in other languages) look like in church life and in our personal lives? Michael unpacks what the bible tells us about this gift of the Holy Spirit. We learn what speaking in tongues is, how we can grow in this gift ourselves, and how to keep love being the central motivation behind it all.
Divine healing is a key theme running through the bible; God showing His amazing grace through physically healing people. Michael focuses today on the story of Naaman, who was trusting in his status, rather trusting in God’s grace, causing a blockage to God’s healing. We unfold five key characters in this tale and see where our own hearts stand when it comes to an expectation of God’s healing power in everyday life.
