    May 17, 2024 God's Solution to Man's Problem | Controlling Your Thoughts

    Mankind has had some great ideas: air travel, space flight, the wheel, the smartphone. But everyday, each of us has some very bad ideas. God calls them sin. But, good or bad, it starts with an idea. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us keep our ideas in check. We’re launching a new series from “the book of beginnings,” the book of Genesis. We’ll see dangerous ideas can be traced all the way back to the Garden of Eden.

    May 16, 2024 Trouble in Paradise | Victory Through Christ

    How does the Devil cause so much mayhem among believers? He has help! He and his minions set their sights on believers trying to make them fall . . . and they’re quite good at what they do. But today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out victory is assured for God’s children when we stand in the victory of Jesus. We’re in the Garden of Eden today watching Adam and Eve struggle against the temptation of our adversary, and we’ll see how that struggle affects us even today.

    May 15, 2024 Trouble in Paradise | How to Fight Temptation

    In the Lord’s Prayer, we read “Lead us not into temptation.” Yeah, we certainly don’t want to go down that path. But haven’t you found that sometimes temptation comes up the path and finds us! Temptation is pervasive. It’s ubiquitous. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us dissect temptation. We’ll trace its roots all the way back to the Garden of Eden. And Pastor Greg offers some biblical insights on how to stop Satan’s attacks right in their tracks.

    If you don’t know where you’re going, how do you know when you get there? It seems some people are in permanent wander mode. They’re drifting.

And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps connect us with the plan and purpose of God. We’re in the opening message of a study series in the book of Genesis.

    May 12, 2024 Don’t Be Afraid! | Sunday Message

    Psalm 27 offers us comforting words, “The Lord is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid?” In today’s message, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us study this Psalm, revealing the power it holds. Find the biblical wisdom you need.
    Notes:
    People’s number one fear is glossophobia.
     
    We need to face our fears.
     
    Deal with your giants, because either you conquer them, or they will conquer you.
     
    “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
    The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
    Psalm 27:1
     
    Faith overcomes fear.
     
    When faith walks in, worry walks out; but when worry steps in, faith walks out.
     
    The Christian life is not a cakewalk; it’s a conflict—it’s not a playground; it’s a battleground.
     
    There will always be something to potentially worry about.
     
    When you are afraid in the dark, turn on the light.
    Psalm 27:1
     
    Anxious notions come sweeping into our mind, uninvited and unwelcome.
    But the presence of our heavenly Father can dispel all fear, worry, and anxiety.
     
    Face your fears in God’s strength, not your own.
    Psalm 27:1
     
    God is bigger than your enemies.
    Psalm 27:2–3
     
    God promises to keep us safe in His protection.
    Psalm 27:5
     
    God will never allow anything to touch us that He does not allow, and He certainly will never let anything happen that would separate us from His love for us.
     
    God either did it or allowed it for His glory and our ultimate good.
    Romans 8:38 
     
    David knew that the main thing was to keep the main thing the main thing!
    Psalm 27:4–5
     
    A danger in life is to permit the urgent things to crowd out the important things.
     
    If we don’t focus on that one thing, we will end up doing everything, and accomplish nothing.
    Read: Psalm 27:8–10
     
    You have a Father in Heaven who loves you and always has time for you.
     
    God promises to be a Father to the fatherless.
     
    Your heavenly Father will never abandon you.
    Psalm 27:9
     
    Take courage and continue to follow the Lord.
    Psalm 27:13–14

    May 9, 2024 The Refreshing Power of the Word of God | Guidance From God's Word

    According to one survey, only 5% of people read owners’ manuals. Maybe that’s why one lady called Kitchen Aid to ask which was the best spin cycle in her clothes washer for drying her lettuce. And then wanted to know why her clothes were turning green. Well, we have an owner’s manual for life: the Bible. But so many leave it on the shelf. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us recognize the Bible for what it is: a book that gives the prescription for life.

    May 8, 2024 The Refreshing Power of the Word of God | Hungry for God's Word

    Ever been so hungry you felt weak? Not just hunger pangs, not just in a “hangry”
    mood. You actually felt sluggish and powerless. Food is at the top of your mind. Well,
    we can start to feel weak spiritually . . . but so many times our spiritual food ISN’T at the top of our minds. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out just what God’s Word does for the weary traveler on the road of life. We’ll see it gives us actual power for living. And we shouldn’t deprive ourselves.

    May 7, 2024 The Refreshing Power of Sharing Your Faith, Part 2 | Remembering What God's Done for You

    When people hear what Jesus has done for us, they’ll see what Jesus can do for them. That’s the essence of sharing the gospel. But what HAS Jesus done for us? If we’ve lost sight of how our life has changed, it may be time to for some soul searching before we go out soul winning. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us reignite the passion in our hearts, and ignite our afterburners in our efforts to share Christ with those who need to meet Him. Today’s study is from the series called Refresh.

    May 5, 2024 The Refreshing Power of the Word of God | Sunday Message

    In today’s message, Pastor Greg Laurie shares that spiritual success or failure depends on how much of God’s Word you get into your life on a regular basis, and how obedient you are to it. Get insight now from Psalm 19. 
    Notes 
    Don’t build your life on fickle emotions; build your life on Christ and God’s Word.
    As we read, study, memorize, and obey Scripture, it refreshes us. 
    The word convert means, “to revive, restore, and transform.”
    Success or failure in the Christian life depends on how much of God’s Word you get into your life on a regular basis, and how obedient you are to it.
    A growing believer will delight in and love the Word of God. 
    Hungry Christians are healthy Christians. 
    The Word of God is perfect.
    “His mercies are new every morning.” —Lamentations 3:23
    How do you know the Bible is the Word of God?
    All the authors of the Bible write about one theme: God’s redemption of mankind.
    The Bible is true because it gives the experience it claims it will give you.
    The Bible is true because it is confirmed by science.
    It was the Bible that first said that the number of stars were innumerable. 
    The objective of the Bible is not to tell us how the heavens go, but how to go to Heaven and how to know God.
    The Bible is true because it is the one book that dares to predict the future.
    The Word of God transforms us. 
    It’s not enough to read and study God’s Word; we must do it!
    The Bible is God’s Word to us, and it should be treasured.
    The Word of God gives us incredible wisdom. 
    The word simple comes from a root word that speaks of an open door.
    What if you don’t agree with what the Bible says?
    Answer: Change your opinion because you are wrong, and the Bible is right.
    The Word of God is right.
    Keeping the Word of God makes you happy. 
    “Happy are those that hear the Word of God and keep it.” —Luke 11:28
    You can have a happy life without sin. 
    The Bible tells us how to get to Heaven.

    May 3, 2024 The Refreshing Power of Sharing Your Faith, Part 2 | Following Our Calling

    When you think back on your spiritual journey and how it was that you came to Christ, most likely there was at least one human being involved in the process. Aren’t you thankful for that person? Well, we each have the opportunity to be “that person” for someone else. It’s God’s plan for disseminating the Good News. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, as part of his series called Refresh, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how refreshing it is when we follow through with our evangelism privilege and responsibility.

    April 30, 2024 The Refreshing Power of Sharing Your Faith, Part 1 | The Happiest Christians

    Whatever we’ve accumulated in life, we can’t take it with us when life is over. It’s like a game of Monopoly . . . the cash, the houses, the hotels . . . when the game is over, it all goes back in the box. But there is one exception: people. We can take people to Heaven with us. The Lord invites us, urges us, to share the gospel, and invite them to Christ. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie offers good encouragement as a part of his encouraging series called Refresh.

    April 21, 2024 The Road Less Traveled | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie begins our new "Psalms of David" series with a message focused on the choices we have in life, including the choice to follow God.
    Notes:
    Matt. 7:24-29/ Ps.1
    Choices matter, because we make our choices, and our choices make us!
    We are not the only ones who make choices; God makes choices, too!
    There are over 59 references to David in the New Testament, yet he was far from perfect.
    He wasn’t only a shepherd, warrior, and king, but also, an adulterer, murderer, and abysmal failure.
     
    In battle, David was fearless. In wisdom, in ruling, he was without peer.
     
    “My heart is fixed, my heart is fixed, O Lord.”
    Psalm 57:7
     
    The book of Psalms gives real insight into David’s heart; it shows his courage, his weakness, his fears, and prayers.
     
    Psalms is a collection of 150 Hebrew poems, songs, and prayers of Israel’s history.
     
    The first Psalm gives a contrast, as we see the difference between right and wrong choices.
     
    “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” ¾Robert Frost
     
    Read: Matthew 7:24–29
     
    We make our choices, and then our choices make us.
     
    The final test of what our foundation is will come in times of testing and hardship in life.
     
    Read: Psalm 1:1–6
     
    The happy person walks the right way.
    Psalm 1:1
     
    Walking is used often to picture the Christian life.
    Colossians 2:6
     
    The happy person walks not in the counsel of the ungodly.
    Psalm 1:1
     
    Ungodly does not necessarily mean immoral or outwardly wicked.
    It just means, “Without God.”
     
    You can be ungodly and still be moral and relatively nice.
     
    We, as Christians, can vote them out and vote others in.
    Proverbs 29:2
     
    “Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
    Psalm 33:12
     
    The happy person thinks the right way.
    Psalm 1:2
     
    “Man must have some delight, some supreme pleasure.
    His heart was never meant to be a vacuum. If not filled with the best things,
    it will be filled with the unworthy and disappointing.” —C.H. Spurgeon
     
    In Eastern meditation, the goal is to empty the mind.
    In biblical meditation, the goal is to fill the mind.
     
    You must read, study, memorize, and meditate on God’s Word.
     
    There is an art to listening. If in conversation you look at a person, respond!
     
    God told Habakkuk to write down the vision He gave to him.
    Habakkuk 2
     
    The happy person is rooted the right way.
    Psalm 1:3
     
    A godly person, a happy person, stays in the Word of God every day.
     
    As we abide in Christ, we bring forth spiritual fruit.
    Matthew 7:17
     
    Our change in conduct and character is described as spiritual fruit.
    Galatians 5:22
     
    “By their fruit shall you know them.”
    Matthew 7:16
     
    Worshipping God is spiritual fruit.
    Hebrews 13:15
     
    Winning others to Christ and helping them grow spiritually is fruit.
     
    Psalm 1:4–6
     
    The choice is yours, to be godly or ungodly.
     
    The choice is yours, be planted or be rootless.
     
    The choice is yours, the happy life or the wasted life.
     
    Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father, except through Me.”

    When we think about sitting down, we might think that’s pretty relaxing. But if you’re sitting in traffic, not so much. If you’re sitting in the doctor’s office, you might be fearing bad news. Many are fearful sitting on an airplane. But is God feeling fear or tension as He sits on His throne? No. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us tap in to God’s state of mind through the power of prayer. He invites us to taste of the refreshing reassurance of a heavenly point of view.

    April 16, 2024 What the Resurrection of Jesus Means to You | The Power of the Resurrection

    The Resurrection is a pivot point for the entire Christian faith. Paul told the Corinthian church, “If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.” Thankfully, he then said, “But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead.” And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how the Resurrection provides the power we need to break through the barriers and live the Christian life.

    April 14, 2024 Ambassadors | Sunday Message

    Pastor Jonathan Laurie points out that, as followers of Jesus, we’re called to be more than refugees, we’re called to be ambassadors: "Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God" (2 Corinthians 5:20 NKJV).

    “There are men whom Jesus, for all His gentleness, has to estimate thus. His pitying eyes were not blind to truth.

    April 12, 2024 What the Death of Jesus Means to You | A Closer Look at the Cross

    For the past month, we’ve studying the rich writings of the Gospel of Mark. Mark weaves together a vivid narrative of the life of Jesus . . . and certainly the most vivid is his description of the end of Jesus’ life and ministry. These events were choreographed by the Father from the beginning of time, but the events were surprising to a First Century citizen seeing it in real time. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie presents his message, What the Death of Jesus Means to You.

    April 10, 2024 A Second Chance in Life | Forgiveness and Restoration

    Golfers know the meaning of the world “mulligan.” Bad golfers know it very well. A mulligan is a do-over. “Take that swing over again, you’re good.” Well thankfully the Lord allows mulligans in the spiritual life. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins...” Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us follow the biblical account of a certain spiritual failure. We’ll see what it was that led to the sin, and how that sin was forgiven and fellowship restored.

    Ever looked at the social media posts of a friend and think, “Wow, they live a pretty good life.” Someone has pointed out we should never compare someone else’s highlight reel, to our blooper reel. We live out our blooper reel everyday, don’t we? We see the flubs, the fumbles, the gaffes, and the goofs up close. But today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that God sees beyond the blooper, to the future. Today, a good example of how God can rewrite our story.

When the gift is extraordinary, a modern etiquette expert says, “Keep the level of the thank you near the level of kindness you received.” Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to a memorable moment in Jesus’ ministry when gratitude was extended Him at such a generous level, it drew attention and even criticism from the disciples. But Pastor Greg explains that Jesus commended Mary.

    March 30, 2024 What Jesus Says About Worry and Anxiety | Sunday Message

    Do you struggle with worry and anxiety? Pastor Greg Laurie covers what Jesus has to say on the topic as we finish our series, "Sermon on the Mount." 
    Notes:
    Matthew 6
    “The more we use social media, the less happy we seem to be.” —Alice G. Walton, Senior Editor, Forbes
    What do people worry about the most?
    Appearance.
    When things are good, we worry about when they’ll be bad; and when things are bad, we worry about if they will ever be good again.
    In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus talks about the believer and worry.
    He tells us why we should not worry and what we should do instead.
    Read: Matthew 6:25–34
    The believer should not worry.
    “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life.”
    Matthew 6:25
    In other words, “do not have anxiety about the issues of life.”
    Worry can be a sin!
    Because worry is a lack of trust in God.
    Worry is never of any value; it never helps but always hurts!
    “Worry is a lot like a rocking chair … always moving, but never getting anywhere!”
    The problem with worry is it’s the interest paid on trouble before it’s due.
    “The result of worrying about the future is that you are crippling yourself in the present.”—Dr. Martin Lloyd Jones
    Worry is a lack of trust.
    “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
    1 Peter 5:7
    The word cast is not the normal word for throwing something; rather, it is a word that signifies a definite act of the will by which we stop worrying about things and let God assume the responsibility for our welfare.
    If it’s a concern for you, it is also a concern to God!
    Psalm 139:17
    Birds don’t worry. Why should we?
    Matthew 6:26
    Flowers don’t worry. Why should we?
    Matthew 6:28–29
    1 Timothy 4:8–9
    Too much emphasis on the physical but neglecting the spiritual.
    Too much emphasis on the spiritual but neglecting the physical.
    God takes care of the birds and flowers; He will also take care of you.
    So, if the greater thing is in His control, leave the lesser to Him as well.
    Worry does not make life longer; it makes it more miserable.
    Matthew 6:27
    Instead of worry, put God and His Will first in your life.
    Matthew 6:33
    Just as God is concerned about what you will eat and what you will wear, He is also concerned about who you will spend the rest of your life with.
    Seek first the Kingdom of God!
    When I put God and His Kingdom first, my life will find its proper balance.
    Don’t worry, pray! When your knees start knocking, kneel on them.

    Two of the most important holidays on the calendar are Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Without the Lord’s death (commemorated on Good Friday), there’s no forgiveness of sin. And regarding the Resurrection, Paul said “if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain, your faith also is in vain.” As we prepare for Good Friday and Easter, Pastor Greg Laurie brings a special message today on A NEW BEGINNING. Insight to help us gain a fuller appreciation for the Lord’s sacrifice.

    March 27, 2024 Amazing Faith | What's Derailing Your Prayers

    Prayer is a privilege. God invites us to pray—with boldness. He invites to seek, ask, and knock. But sometimes our prayers can be derailed. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us investigate those factors that can keep our prayers from reaching God’s throne. We’re in a practical series of lessons in the Gospel of Mark titled, The Gospel for Busy People. And today, we’ll see how to undergird our prayers with faith and with a proper attitude and respect for our God.

    March 24, 2024 How to (and How Not to) Pray | Sunday Message

    What does your prayer life look like? Pastor Greg Laurie helps us stay on the right track as we examine the way Jesus instructed His disciples to pray.
    Notes:
    Matthew 6
    Jesus did what the disciples had asked; and in doing so, He was acknowledging that prayer is something that can be learned.
    The Lord’s prayer shows us how to pray Jesus’ way.
    But first, Jesus shows us how not to pray.
    Read: Matthew 6:5–8
    Sin knows no boundaries; it afflicts us when we are far from God and follows us to the very throne of Heaven.
    It is possible to pray with no thought of God Himself.
    Prayer is not to inform God but, rather, to invite God.
    The response to the question: “Lord, teach us to pray.”
    Read: Matthew 6:9–13
    We pray to a Father in Heaven who loves us. A Father who loves and misses His children when they go astray. A Father that longs for communication and fellowship with us.
    God is not just our Father; He is our “abba” or “daddy.”
    Romans 8:15
    We begin our prayers with “our Father.”
    Then, we are to worship Him and contemplate Him before we offer our petitions.
    Matthew 6:9 – “Hallowed be Your name.”
    When we pray, we should always ask for God’s Will to be done.
    Matthew 6:10
    Prayer is not getting my will in Heaven, but it is God’s Will on Earth.
    1 John 5:14
    Nothing lies outside the reach of prayer except that which lies outside the Will of God. God only answers the requests which He inspires.
    Prayer is not pulling God to my will, but the aligning of my will to the Will of God.
    We should pray for God’s Kingdom to come.
    Matthew 6:10
    When we pray, “Thy Kingdom come,” we are praying for God’s rule on Earth.
    Revelation 11:15
    The word come indicates a sudden, instantaneous coming.
    2 Peter 3:14
    God’s Kingdom is brought to this Earth every time a new soul is brought to Jesus.
    We should be praying for the salvation of nonbelievers.
    We should pray a person sees their need for Jesus.
    We need to bring our personal needs before God.
    Matthew 6:11
    Job 7:17
    When you ask someone to give you something, you are acknowledging that they own it.
    We are completely dependent on God; God is completely independent from us.
    You will never have a proper relationship to all of your possessions until you understand that everything you have, everything that you need, and everything that you own comes from God.
    Everything we have, ultimately, comes from God!
    James 1:17
    Deuteronomy 8:18
    James 4:2
    Romans 8:32
    We need to pray for personal forgiveness, and we need to forgive others.
    Matthew 6:12
    Forgiven people should be forgiving people.
    Matthew 6:12
    “Everyone thinks forgiveness is a lovely idea until they have someone to forgive.” —C.S. Lewis
    If we harbor resentment and fail to forgive, we grieve the Holy Spirit.
    Ephesians 4:30–32
    We need to pray to not fall into temptation.
    Matthew 6:13

    March 15, 2024 A New Kind of Family | Learning From God

    When we finish praying the sinner’s prayer, and become a child of God, it would be great if all our questions are immediately answered, all our doubts are suddenly dispelled and the gaps in our understanding are instantly filled in. But coming to know God and His plan for our lives is part of the privilege and challenge of living the Christian life. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how we should feel free to approach God for help in sharpening our understanding and deepening our faith.

    March 14, 2024 A New Kind of Family | Bible Principles for Family Relationships

    In essence, believers are a part of two families. We’re a part of our earthly families, and we’re part of the family of God. There are privileges and responsibilities that go with both. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how it’s sometimes difficult to share about our faith with our earthly family. Sometimes, one family doesn’t want to hear about the other one. Today, some good insight on what God expects of us within those most important earthly relationships.

Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us look at the way Jesus bid His disciples to “come follow me.” We’ll examine that calling, what it costs and what it offers, and we’ll consider the blessing of being used by God to accomplish His Kingdom business.

That’s the question we’ll explore today here on A NEW BEGINNING. Glad you’re along as Pastor Greg Laurie continues his series in Mark.

    It’s never a mistake to follow Jesus’ example. In fact, that’s implied in the definition of
    “follower” or “disciple.” We’re walking in the footsteps of Jesus. And today on A NEW
    BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to the dramatic moment when Jesus had a confrontation with the Devil himself. It was the moment the Savior of our souls crossed paths with the accuser of the brethren. But Jesus chose to make it a teaching moment for all of us as believers who encounter the scourge of temptation.

    March 3, 2024 How to Be Happy, Part 2 | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie continues covering The Beatitudes, where we see what the actions of happy people look like. 
    Notes:
    Matthew 5
    The Sermon on the Mount is only for Christians
    Happy are the humble
    Happy people are "unhappy" people
    A happy person will be a meek person
    A happy person passionately desires a righteous life
    Read Matthew 5:7
    Point #1: Happy people are merciful people
    Extend God's mercy toward you to others; forgiven people should be forgiving people
    Read Matthew 5:8
    Point #2: A happy person will be a holy person
    Pure in heart = whole being is directed toward God. To be single (single eye), or pure in heart, means to have a single focus on Jesus Christ.
    Read Matthew 5:9
    Point #3: A happy person will be a peacemaker
    If you're a Christian, you're a son or daughter of God
    Read: Matthew 5:10
    Point #4: A happy person will be persecuted 
    If you want to be a happy person, you're going to be a persecuted person
    If persecuted, rejoice (Matthew 5:12)
    Let persecution be for righteousness sake
    God can work through persecution
    It's not easy to be a Christian. It takes courage. But Jesus Christ is worth not only living for, but dying for. It's worth it!
    A relationship with God will bring you happiness.

    If there’s a war raging, and someone mistakenly stumbles into the middle of it, the warriors don’t suddenly stop and say, ‘Hey, wait a minute, fellas, this guy isn’t part of it. Let’s wait ‘til he gets outta the way.’ No people who stumble into battle unaware often get caught in the crossfire. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie wants to make sure that doesn’t happen to us. He points out that we’re surrounded by spiritual warfare, and we need to be prepared to fight, and fight victoriously.

    February 25, 2024 How to Be Happy | Sunday Message

    Some people look for happiness in relationships, money, or shopping. Where do you look? Hint: If it's not to God, that's the wrong place! Pastor Greg Laurie reminds us that true happiness can only be found in a relationship with our Creator.
    Notes:
    "God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from Himself because it's not there." —C. S. Lewis
    Happiness comes from who you know, not what you have.
    "...Joyful indeed are those whose God is the Lord" —Psalm 144:15
    The Christian faith is a happy faith. 
    God wants you to be happy, contrary to popular belief. 
    Angels brought good news that brings joy (Luke 2:10).
    God Himself is happy.
    Christians will still face tragedy.
    God's definition of happiness is different than ours.
    Biblical world-view: The Bible should change the way you see things.
    Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1). Jesus gave it to His disciples, not the multitudes; only Christians can live by this sermon. 
    First 4 beatitudes deal with our relationship with God, the other 4 deal with our relationships with others. 
    Blessed = happy.
    Read Matthew 5:2–9.
    Point #1: God wants you to be blessed and happy.
    Point #2: Happy people are humble people.
    Point #3: Happy people are "unhappy people."
    Point #4: A happy person will be a meek person.
    Point #5: A happy person passionately desires a righteous life.
    The only way to be a happy person is to know God. Not by chasing happiness, but by knowing God.

And He didn’t give part of His life on the cross to pay for some of our sins. As someone has said, “Sin had left a crimson stain, and He didn’t wash it light pink.” Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how Jesus gave His all . . . and the only appropriate response is from us is to give our all.

    February 16, 2024 Overcoming or Overcome | Standing with the Lord

    Kids learn early on the playground that if a bully is bigger than them, it’s good to have a friend who’s bigger than the bully. A bully who has met his match is no longer a threat. As the Bible says, "He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4 NKJV). Our adversary is no match for our Almighty God. We stand in victory when we stand with the Lord! A good lesson on that today on A NEW BEGINNING as Pastor Greg continues his series called "Joshua: Living in the Land of Promises."

    February 15, 2024 Get Your Feet Wet | The Role of a Christian Parent

    We don’t take our young kids to the shoe store to learn to tie their shoes. We don’t take them to the dentist to learn to brush their teeth. We don’t take them to a nutritionist to learn to eat their vegetables. No, there are certain things parents teach their kids. It’s just part of being a parent. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out those things that go along with being a Christian parent . . . namely to pass along our faith . . . to train them up in the way of the Lord . . . to disciple them.

And coming up on A NEW BEGINNING. Pastor Greg Laurie helps us exercise our faith in the God of the universe, the One who loves us and only has plans for good and not to harm us.

It’s a tough assignment to “run to win” when our adversary is trying to trip us up and stop us in our tracks. Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie offers biblical advice on keeping our focus and priorities where they should be.

    February 11, 2024 God Keeps His Promises | Sunday Message

    Have you ever made a promise you couldn't keep? Unlike us, God is completely faithful. We can always trust Him to fulfill what He's promised. Pastor Greg Laurie talks more about this in an insightful Bible study.
    Notes:
    Genesis 6
    God promises the forgiveness of our sins.
    1 John 1:9
    God promises a new life in Christ if we believe in Him.
    2 Corinthians 5:17
    God promises He will be with us and comfort us in our hard times.
    Isaiah 43:2
    God promises He will complete the work He has begun in you.
    Philippians 1:6
    God promises peace when we pray instead of worry.
    Philippians 4:6
    God promises to provide for our needs.
    Matthew 6:31–33
    The Bible promises that Jesus Christ will come again.
    John 14:3
    Jesus is coming back again!
    There are over 1,500 passages in Scripture that deal with Christ’s return.
    It’s going to get worse before it gets better.
    God is in control.
    And we win in the end!
    (Build)
    Jesus told us our last days would be just like Noah’s time.
    Matthew 24:37–44
    Noah walked with God when no else did.
    “Shall two walk together, except they have agreed?”
    Amos 3:3
    To walk with God means that I am in agreement with Him.
    Early is on time, on time is late, and late is never acceptable.
    To walk with God is to get in-sync with Him and move when He moves.
    To walk with God is to have the same goal, purpose, and desires.
    Noah was a witness for God.
    2 Peter 2:5
    Noah worked for God.
    The Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic was built by professionals.
    God not only remembered Noah, but Noah remembered God.
    Coming out of the Ark, Noah offers a sacrifice to the Lord.
    Genesis 8:20
    Noah had his priorities straight!
    Saying grace over a meal.
    Faithful giving of your finances.
    Not skipping church.
    Scripture reminds us to remember God.
    Ecclesiastes 12:1
    Read: Genesis 9:20–29
    Noah’s fall teaches us that anyone can fall into sin. Moses sinned by striking the rock instead of speaking to it. David sinned with Bathsheba. Solomon sinned with the pursuit of pleasure.
    Our goal as Christians, therefore, should be to not just start this race, but also finish well, too!
    Noah’s fall teaches us about the destructive power of alcohol.
    Genesis 9:21
    Noah’s life stands as a warning to every person who follows Jesus!
    If we see some Christian fall into sin, what should we do?
    Galatians 6:1
    Our goal is always to restore, not destroy.
    James 5:19–20
    God keeps His promises!
    God never forgets about us!
    Never lower your guard or rest on your laurels, spiritually.
    If someone has fallen into sin, our goal should always be to restore.

    February 8, 2024 How to Live a Successful Christian Life | Reconnecting with God's Word

    When astronauts used to orbit the moon, there was a period of about 45 minutes when they were on the back side of the moon and couldn’t receive any signals from NASA’s Mission Control. Those were the longest 45 minutes of the mission! Well, believers often go through periods of disconnection from the wisdom of God’s Word. We’re without that supernatural power and direction. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us reconnect to Scripture, and see more success in our walk of faith.

    February 7, 2024 How to Live a Successful Christian Life | Keeping Our Faith

Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how we can keep our faith above water, and let fear sink to the bottom. It’s an encouraging message called “How to Live a Successful Christian Life.” Good inspiration for the times of trial and challenge we face.

    February 5, 2024 Evangelism Jesus-Style | Winning Souls, Not Debates

    In scholastic debates, they keep score. It’s a competition, and each side wants to win big. All too often, believers think sharing their faith is some kind of competitive debate. If they can score enough points, they win . . . and the other person automatically comes to Christ. But that approach can suddenly end the conversation, and even end the friendship. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how we’re to win souls, not debates. Good encouragement coming today.

    January 28, 2024 God's Solution to Man's Problem | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie describes the theme of this message as “what happens when we don't follow the warning?” He takes us into Adam and Eve's story, where we get important takeaways on mankind's shortcomings.
    Notes:
    Genesis 4
    The theme of this message is, “What happens when we don't follow the warning?”
    Genesis 3:6
    Every temptation in life fits into three categories.
    1 John 2:15–16
    The Lust of the Flesh: Things that feel good.
    Genesis 3:6
    The Lust of the Eyes: Things that look good.
    Genesis 3:6
    The Pride of Life: Things that make you feel and look good.
    Genesis 3:6
    The pride of life is an obsession with self.
    The world with its allure is the eternal foe.
    The flesh with its evil desires is the internal foe.
    Satan with his enticements is the infernal foe.
    Mark 2:21
    God called out, “Where are you?”
    Genesis 3:10–13
    Adam blamed God for what he himself had done.
    Genesis 3:12
    We play a role in our own temptation and sin.
    Jeremiah 17:9
    Because of Adam’s sin, we all suffer.
    Romans 5:12
    Read: Genesis 4:1–7
    The book of Genesis can be divided into three sections: Chapters 1–2: Generation, Chapters 3–11: Degeneration, and Chapters 12–50: Regeneration.
    Mankind wrecks everything he touches!
    Being exposed to truth does not guarantee you follow it.
    The heart of the matter is the matter of the heart!
    Hebrews 11:4
    God wanted confession because that is the way to forgiveness!
    God gave Cain a warning.
    The Devil is always looking for trouble.
    Job 1:7
    Ephesians 4:26–27
    Sin is crouching at our doors, too!
    Shakespeare called envy the “green-eyed monster.”
    Jealously and envy are powerful and destructive sins we often underestimate.
    Envy has been described as a small-town sin that breeds in proximity.
    “The wicked envy and hate; it is their way of admiring.” —Victor Hugo
    Genesis 3:14–15
    The Bible tells us Jesus was, “slain from the foundation of the world.”

    January 23, 2024 How to Resolve Conflict | The Role of Grace and Humility

    Disagreement and conflict is almost inevitable in human relationships. When that happens, some people put up their fists . . . others call up their lawyer. Others look up the Proverb that says a soft answer turns away wrath. In the big picture, those moments can either undergird our efforts to share Christ, or undermine them. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us deal with everyone in a spirit of grace and humility. We’re in Acts chapter 15.

    January 22, 2024 The Almost Christian | Fully Accepting Christ

    January 21, 2024 Trouble In Paradise | Sunday Message

    In Genesis 2, we get a close look at the events that occurred in the Garden of Eden. We get to focus on the relationship between God and man. Pastor Greg Laurie shares valuable points from this book today. 
    Notes:
    Genesis 2/Genesis 3
    Elohim is the appropriate word to portray God as the Majestic Creator.
    Yahweh is the personal name God uses when dealing with humanity.
    Read: Genesis 2:7–9
    God created man and breathed life into him. The word, “breathed,” is warmly personal.
    Genesis 2:7
    Eden means, “delight.” God placed man in a real place called, Eden. Eden was hand-made by God Himself, untouched by sin and death, perfect.
    Adam was tasked with naming the animals.
    Genesis 2:20
    Read: Genesis 2:18, 21–25
    God created woman and brought her to the man.
    The word, “helper,” does not imply inferiority; it’s the same term God uses to describe Himself as a helper to His people.
    God establishes the family and the home: A man and a woman.
    To have a successful marriage, you must both leave other relationships.
    Genesis 2:24
    To have a successful marriage, the couple must cleave together. Cleave means, “to glue, to cling.”
    Marriage is a picture of Christ and the church!
    1 Corinthians 7:32–33
    Our greatest needs are not fulfilled in marriage but in Jesus!
    Read: Genesis 3:1–9
    The devil undermines in four ways.
    Satan questioned God’s Word.
    “Has God, indeed, said?”
    Satan added to God’s Word.
    Genesis 3:3
    God never said, “Neither shall you touch it.”
    Satan questioned God’s love.
    Satan denied God’s Word.
    Satan substituted his own lie.
    Every temptation can be resisted and overcome.
    James 1:12
    Genesis 3:8
    God wanted Adam to admit to and confess his sin.

    Ever drive away from home and had that nagging feeling you might have left the stove on? Or you forgot to lock a door? Or you left a curling iron plugged in? If you don’t go back and check, you start thinking of how things could go horribly wrong. We want to be sure about certain things, don’t we? Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us check ourselves when it comes to the sincerity of our faith in Christ. When it comes to matters of eternity, “close enough” . . . isn’t close enough.

    It may come as a surprise to some . . . it may be welcome confirmation for others . . . but believers can get depressed. Yes, there are numerous Scriptures about joy and contentment, but we’re humans living in mortal bodies, in challenging times. Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie focuses on a depressing time in the life of the great prophet Elijah, and highlights a number of practical principles to help us in our times of challenge.

    January 17, 2024 Dealing with Depression | Standing with God in a Sinful Culture

    Trying to live a godly life in an ungodly world can seem like we’re trying to walk up a downward escalator. The culture is trying to drag believers right into a quagmire of hopeless humanism and angry atheism. But God has a plan. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us revisit one of the most exciting stories of the Old Testament when a single prophet of God confronts 850 feckless false prophets and watches God’s plan unfold

    January 16, 2024 Christ's Call to Courage | Encouragement for the Weary

    Sometimes, it can seem as though we’re swimming against the current in our life of faith. If it isn’t opposition and even persecution for what we believe, it’s challenges in health, or finances, or relationships. How do we get through? How have others made it? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points to the Apostle Paul as our inspiration. We’re in the book of Acts considering the trial upon trial Paul faced, but the word of encouragement that pulled him through.

    January 15, 2024 Christ's Call to Courage | Finding the Courage We Need

    Many people feel they just can’t function in the morning without their cup of coffee. But, long ago, coffee met with grumpy, nearly global opposition for hundreds of years! (They were grumpy ‘cause they hadn’t had their coffee). People oppose lots of things, but then come to embrace them warmly. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how we need to realize that people need the message we share, and we need to find the courage to share it even in the face of opposition.

    January 14, 2024 God's Purpose for Us | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie introduces a fresh series, "It All Starts Here," where we explore the Book of Genesis. In this first message, he focuses on God's purpose for us while helping us understand other topics, such as the creation of the world. 
    Notes:
    Genesis 1
    We are created on purpose and for a purpose.
    God has a plan and purpose for you.
    Acts 13:36
    We need to know and fulfill our purpose.
    Romans 8:28
    Genesis means, “beginning.”
    The book of Genesis begins with God.
    Genesis 1:1
    Since God created the heavens and the Earth,
    He is more than adequate to meet your needs.
    Genesis is the ground floor and foundation of the entire Bible.
    Without it, the rest of the Bible would be incomprehensible.
    Read: Genesis 1:1–10
    God is triune, meaning, three-in-one—eternally existing in three persons.
    Genesis 3:22; Genesis 11:6
    The Trinity consists of three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
    God is the Creator of all things!
    Created (Bara) means, “to create something out of nothing.”
    Only God can create; that is, call into existence that which had no existence.
    God has always existed.
    He is self-existent. He has existed from the beginning.
    Revelation 1:8
    God created all things in six days!
    Genesis gives a broad-stroked painting of creation, not a photograph.
    The focus of Genesis is not to show us “how the heavens go,”
    but “how to go to Heaven.”
    I don’t believe in the Bible because Science proves it true;
    I believe in the science that the Bible proves is true!
    God created mankind in His image.
    Read: Genesis 1:26–28
    After each thing God created, He said, “It is good.”
    When God created man, He said, “It is very good.”
    Genesis 1:31
    Read: Genesis 2:1–3
    God did not rest because He was tired; He rested because He was done!
    The word rest in Hebrew is Shabath and it means, “cease.”
    “Cast all your care on Him, for He cares for you!”
    1 Peter 5:7
    The God who created you will bear it for you.
    “If you will come to Him, He will turn your night into day with a word. He will reorder your broken life with a word. He will bring form out of chaos with a word. It’s His specialty.”
    “The Lord remembers us, and He will bless us.”
    Psalm 115:12
    The meaning of life is to know and bring glory to God!

    January 12, 2024 Let's Talk About Heaven, Part 2 | Questions About Heaven

    They say, in any major city these days, there are cameras watching you . . . as you walk, as you drive. Security cameras in front of a market, or built into a nearby ATM. Maybe a webcam on the top of a building or someone’s video door bell. What about our friends and loved ones in Heaven? Are they watching what’s going on here on earth? Pastor Greg Laurie address that question and several others today on A NEW BEGINNING as he presents a glimpse of life inside our eternal home.

When you hear the words, “You may kiss your bride.” Well, when we get to Heaven, we just may not be able to hold ourselves back from worship.

    January 7, 2024 Why Church Matters | Sunday Message

    In this message, Pastor Adam helps us remember "why church matters." We'll take a look at Hebrews for important points. 
    Notes:
    Hebrews 10:19—25
    Hebrews 4:12
    Hebrews 4:15—16
    Hebrews 6:19

    We must go to God.
    We must hold on to hope.
    We must motivate each other.

    Only 24% of our congregation attended Harvest at least once per month on average.
    76% attended less than once per month.
    Only 11% went to at least half the Sundays in 2023.
    1. We must go to God.
    The Church exists for 3 reasons:

    The exaltation of God (Upward)
    The edification of the saints (Inward)
    The evangelization of the world (Outward)

    2. We must hold on to hope.
    Ephesians 2:8–9 (ESV)
    “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”
    3. We must motivate each other.

    We throw the word idol around pretty freely in our culture. “So-and-so is a teen idol” . . . “did you watch American Idol?” . . . “Humphrey Bogart was a matinee idol.” But biblically speaking, an idol is a representation or symbol of an object of worship. It’s a clear transgression of the First Commandment. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie warns about idol worship based on an epic confrontation in First Kings 18. Elijah goes toe to toe with the prophets of Baal.

    December 31, 2023 Reflecting on the Past, Preparing for the Future | Sunday Message Encore

    In this Sunday message celebrating all that God has done over the past 50 years, Pastor Greg Laurie delivers important points on God’s faithfulness and our faith in Him.
    If these messages have impacted your life and walk with the Lord, consider supporting the mission of Harvest Ministries into 2024 as we attempt to reach more people than ever through media outreach and evangelistic events. Visit https://harvest.org/donate/ to make your gift before the end of the year!
    Notes:
    Two words stand out in our 50-year history: Faithfulness and faith. The faithfulness of God and our response of faith to His calling.
    Jesus promised to the church: “The gates of Hell shall not prevail against us.”
    God has remained faithful to lead, protect, and guide us each step of the way.
    2 Thessalonians 3:3
    “The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places. I have a beautiful inheritance.”
    Psalm 16:6
    “Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen.”
    Hebrews 11:1
    Faith is not just intellectual ascent; it is also action. Faith is belief plus action. Faith is a living, restless thing; it cannot be inoperative.
    What saves is faith alone, but the faith that saves is never alone.
    How does faith come? By listening, studying, and immersing yourself with the Word of God.
    Romans 10:17
    Theology without apology.
    Worshiping
    Evangelizing
    Learning
    Loving
    Faith can make the difference between something happening and not happening.
    Faith sees what could be; a believer sees invisible things.
    Read: Matthew 14:28–31
    Faith is the refusal to panic, and it has no back door.
    When you have a lapse of faith, call out to Jesus!
    Matthew 14:30–31
    “Little faith” is one word in the Greek.
    With Peter’s eyes back on Jesus, “little faith” walked back to the boat.
    Matthew 14:32
    We should never believe our doubts and doubt our beliefs. We should believe our beliefs and doubt our doubts.
    “Your faithfulness continues from generation to generation.”
    Psalm 119:90
    Teach God’s Word faithfully. Invite people to come to Christ. Preach the gospel to our culture.

    December 29, 2023 The Parable of Spiritual Growth | Learning to Grow

    Help us share the gospel in 2024!
    Christian growth doesn’t happen automatically. It takes effort, persistence and determination. When people come to Christ, they need to learn how to grow spiritually. We’ll discuss that today here on A NEW BEGINNING. It’s important insight whether you came to the Lord a couple of weeks ago, or a couple of decades ago! Today, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us avoid the common pitfalls all believers seem to fall into, and instead set our focus on Christ and His plan for our lives.

    Help us share the gospel in 2024!
    Ever try to run up a downward escalator? Sounds silly, but kids try it all the time, just to see if they can. When we try to fight against the lures of temptation on our own strength, we’re running up a downward escalator. The momentum against us is just too much. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us change escalators and embrace the power and provision of God through prayer. When we’re moving in the same direction as the Spirit of God, the journey is much easier.

    Merry Christmas from all of us at Harvest Ministries and A NEW BEGINNING. Today, Pastor Greg helps us look beyond the gifts and the garland, the tinsel and the tree. We’ll see the birth of Jesus had a purpose. God sent His Son on a rescue mission for sinners who couldn’t save themselves. That was His purpose.
    But Pastor Greg first draws our attention to some family matters. We’ll examine two separate earthly genealogies of Jesus, and what they teach us of God’s mercy and grace.

    Some of the genealogy TV shows are fascinating. They trace the ancestry of a famous actor or music artist. So often, hopes are high that they can trace the lineage back to a regal monarch from a faraway land. But sometimes all they find is a regular ol’ horse thief from a nearby county. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to Jesus’ family tree. It’s a fascinating tour of the colorful characters God chose for Jesus’ earthly ancestry.

Some would even say the Son didn’t even EXIST until that moment. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie sets the record straight. We’ll see how the Son is coeternal with the Father, and even makes several appearances in Scripture before that first Christmas. We’ll see for ourselves. Revealing insight is coming our way today.

    December 17, 2023 Heaven’s Light Breaking | Sunday Message

    Help us share the gospel in 2024!
    Do you ever wonder, “God where are you!?” Pastor Greg Laurie helps us see how God is always at work—even if it’s behind the scenes. We’ll also see what more we can learn from Zechariah, Elizabeth, and John the Baptist. 
    Notes:
    Luke 1
    Malachi 4:2
    We live by time; God lives outside of time. God recognizes human time, but He is not bound by it. God sees the big picture, but we see the small picture. God has His timing and makes everything beautiful in His time.
    Ecclesiastes 3:11
    No one wants your loved ones to come to Jesus more than Jesus does!
    God was not only promising the Messiah, He also spoke of a forerunner.
    Malachi 3:1
    The forerunner would be known as John the Baptist.
    From Genesis to Revelation, we have one complete Revelation of God.
    From the Old Testament to the New Testament, He is the same.
    Jonah 4:2
    Read: Luke 1:11–17
    Continually bring your burdens to the Lord in prayer!
    Zechariah means, “God remembers.” Elizabeth means, “My God is an oath.”
    God remembers us and keeps His promises!
    Philippians 1:6
    Zechariah was a humble man. “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
    James 4:6
    God is still looking for humble people to use for His glory.
    2 Chronicles 16:9
    We represent God to a lost world, and we intercede for those in need to God in prayer.
    1 Peter 2:9
    Zechariah was a faithful man.
    God often speaks to His people when they are busy doing their daily tasks.
    Zechariah and Elizabeth were Godly and blameless people.
    Luke 1:6
    Blameless does not mean they were sinless; it means they obeyed God.
    God was preparing them both for this day, and now the reward for their faithfulness has come!
    Luke 1:13
    His prayer on earth was heard in Heaven!
    God promises that if we, as His people, call out to Him, He will hear and answer!
    Psalm 34:15
    God urges us to call out to Him!
    Jeremiah 33:3
    God’s delays are not necessarily His denials.
    God hears and stores our prayers. Not one is wasted. Every prayer is answered: Yes, no, and wait.
    Zechariah was human and flawed just like us!
    Luke 1:18–19
    Read: Luke 1:21–22
    John was the direct forerunner of the Messiah! His job was to clear the way, prepare the way, and get out of the way.
    Be humble, wait on the Lord, and serve Him where you are.

The point is our perspective changes. Right? We eat vegetables ‘cause they’re good for us.

    December 10, 2023 “The Gift” (How to Keep Christmas Happy) | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie points out that we often don’t appreciate the gifts we receive enough—including our God-given gift of salvation. He talks about what this gift brings, and how we should respond.
    Notes:
    Matthew 2
    The gift that God gave to us. The gift that we give to God. The gift we give to others...
    The gift that God gave to us.
    Christians carry this gift in their hearts.
    It is salvation, the gift of eternal life.
    “The gift of God which is eternal life through Jesus Christ.”
    Romans 6:23
    The gift God has given us is more valuable than any earthly gift; it’s called justification.
    Romans 5:1–2
    The word justify speaks of the forgiveness of our sins. God takes our sin and forgives and forgets them!
    “God hurls our sins into the sea where they sink like a stone.”
    Micah 7:19
    “For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
    Jeremiah 31:34
    Do not choose to remember what God has chosen to forget.
    Justification means, “just as if it never had happened.” Justified means, “to put to one’s account.”
    Acts 13:38–39
    The gift that we give to God.
    There is nothing we could ever give to God that would equal what He gave us.
    Read: Matthew 2:9–12
    Gold, because Jesus was a King. Frankincense, because Jesus was our high priest. Myrrh, because Jesus came to die for our sin.
    “In the blink of an eye wealth disappears, for it will sprout wings and fly away like an eagle.”
    Proverbs 23:5
    You are sitting in someone else’s sacrifice.
    The gift we give to others.
    The key to having a happy Christmas is not receiving but, rather, giving.
    A 10-Step Solution for Depression:
    Step 1: Do something for someone else who has greater needs than you.
    Step 2: Repeat Step 1 nine more times.
    3 John 1:4
    The only real happiness you will find is in Christ, not in Christmas but in Christ.
    “God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself because it is not there. There is no such thing.” —C.S. Lewis

    Guest speaker—and leading apologetic in America—Lee Strobel brings a powerful message discussing evidence for God’s existence. Listen in to expand your knowledge on spiritual topics, not only for yourself, but for future conversations with nonbelievers.
    Notes:
    1. Cosmology: The Origin of the Universe
    Whatever begins to exist has a cause.
    The universe began to exist.
    Therefore, the universe has a cause.
    Genesis 1:1 (NIV)
    Transcendent, spirit, eternal, powerful, smart, personal, creative, caring, and unique.
    2. Physics: The Numbers Behind the Universe
    Psalm 19:1 (NIV)
    “The exquisite order displayed by our scientific understanding of the physical world calls for the divine.” —Dr. Vera Kistiakowski, physics professor, MIT, and president of the Association of Women in Science
    3. The Resurrection
    1 Corinthians 15:17 (NIV)
    Jesus was definitely alive at Point A.
    “Jesus did exist, whether we like it or not.” —Agnostic Historian Bart Ehrman
    Jesus was surely dead at Point B.
    “Clearly the weight of the historical and medical evidence indicates that Jesus was dead [even] before the wound to his side was inflicted.” —Journal of the American Medical Association
    Jesus was alive again at Point C.
    His tomb was empty.
    His disciples were convinced He appeared to them.
    “I say unequivocally that the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ is so overwhelming that it compels acceptance by proof which leaves absolutely no room for doubt.” —Sir Lionel Luckhoo
    John 1:12 (NASB)
    Believe + Receive = Become

    December 1, 2023 Antichrist, America & Armageddon | What's to Come

    There’s so much evil in the world, it’s hard to wrap our minds around it. But serious Bible students know that “we ain’t seen nothing yet.” There’ll come a time when evil will reach a crescendo unlike the world has ever seen. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us understand what’s to come, and how the Lord wants us to respond to that information. And we need to remember, ultimately, the battle belongs to the Lord, and we know Who wins in the end!

    When we hear about the Rapture, how we’ll meet the Lord in a heartbeat, our first reaction might be, “Let’s go!” But when we think about all the loved ones who haven’t come to Christ yet, our second response might be, “Can we wait just a bit longer?” Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us understand the Rapture and its part in the Lord’s grand Last Days plan. It’s a dramatic moment to be sure, but that’s only part of the startling things to come according to God’s Word.

    November 26, 2023 Reflecting on the Past, Preparing for the Future | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie delivers important points on God’s faithfulness and our faith in Him.
    Notes:
    Two words stand out in our 50-year history: Faithfulness and faith. The faithfulness of God and our response of faith to His calling.
    Jesus promised to the church: “The gates of Hell shall not prevail against us.”
    God has remained faithful to lead, protect, and guide us each step of the way.
    2 Thessalonians 3:3
    “The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places. I have a beautiful inheritance.”
    Psalm 16:6
    “Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen.”
    Hebrews 11:1
    Faith is not just intellectual ascent; it is also action. Faith is belief plus action. Faith is a living, restless thing; it cannot be inoperative.
    What saves is faith alone, but the faith that saves is never alone.
    How does faith come? By listening, studying, and immersing yourself with the Word of God.
    Romans 10:17
    Theology without apology.
    Worshiping
    Evangelizing
    Learning
    Loving
    Faith can make the difference between something happening and not happening.
    Faith sees what could be; a believer sees invisible things.
    Read: Matthew 14:28–31
    Faith is the refusal to panic, and it has no back door.
    When you have a lapse of faith, call out to Jesus!
    Matthew 14:30–31
    “Little faith” is one word in the Greek.
    With Peter’s eyes back on Jesus, “little faith” walked back to the boat.
    Matthew 14:32
    We should never believe our doubts and doubt our beliefs. We should believe our beliefs and doubt our doubts.
    “Your faithfulness continues from generation to generation.”
    Psalm 119:90
    Teach God’s Word faithfully. Invite people to come to Christ. Preach the gospel to our culture.

    November 21, 2023 Loving God | Focusing on God

    Sometimes it’s easiest to see our human idiosyncrasies in other people. Take a toddler, for instance. The little one may be despairing over the toy—or the cookie—he can’t have... until daddy walks through the door, home from work. Suddenly, his focus changes and his little world is all about dad. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out, when our love and focus is on our Heavenly Father, we won’t despair for the things of this world.

    November 20, 2023 Discipleship: The Next Step in Following Jesus | New and Old Believers Need Each Other

    There’s a good chance you’ve seen a two-man saw. With handles on both sides, it’s an excellent example of teamwork. One man pushes, the other man pulls, and then vice versa. Some of those saws were 12 feet long. The Christian life has many examples of teamwork, and today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us focus on discipleship. It addresses the push n’ pull of daily life as a believer—where a new believer and a veteran believer each have something to offer the other.

    November 19, 2023 Resilient Faith | Sunday Message

    Do you struggle with contentment? In this valuable message, Pastor Jonathan Laurie points to biblical figures who’ve “been there, done that” and have some wisdom to share! 
    Notes:
    “The Word of God is like a lion. You don’t have to defend a lion. All you have to do is let the lion loose, and the lion will defend itself.” ―Charles Spurgeon
    Psalm 12:6
    Read: Philippians 4:1–13
    “Resilient Faith”
    Rejoice.
    Philippians 4:4
    Proverbs 29:11
    Philippians 4:19
    As Christians, our job is to have the right perspective and rejoice not in what you don’t have, but in what you do have.
    1 Thessalonians 5:18
    Give it to God.
    Philippians 4:6–7
    The word for anxious can also be translated as “care” or “concerned.”
    God’s Plan.
    Philippians 4:19
    “I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.” —Jim Carrey
    “When the child of God is in the will of God, all of the universe works for him; but when the child of God is out of the will of God, everything works against him.” —Warren Wiersbe

Because if you don’t know anything, it’s hard to do anything. Well, today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how we tutor new believers through a process called “discipleship.” It’s a process of spiritual duplication where older believers give the younger an example to follow, a paradigm for success.

    November 12, 2023 What to Do When the Odds Are Against You | Sunday Message

    We have to remember that God's perspective is different than our own. As Pastor Greg Laurie says, where we see weakness, God sees potential. Where we see the past, He sees the future. We see a lump of clay, He sees a beautiful sculpture... More on that in this episode!
    Notes:
    “In those days, Israel had no king, so the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes.”
    Judges 17:6
    Israel was living in despair, but they finally called out to God to deliver them, and He did.
    Jeremiah 33:3
    Read: Judges 6:12–14
    “Why has all of this happened to us?
    And where are all the miracles we heard about in days gone by?”
    So, he said to Him, “O my Lord, how can I save Israel?”
    Judges 6:15
    God uses people who are humble.
    We see weakness, but God sees potential. We see a lump of clay, but God sees a beautiful sculpture. We see a lump of coal, but God sees a sparkling diamond.
    If you want to be used by God, be faithful in the little things.
    Judges 6:27
    The hardest people to reach will always be your own family.
    As Jesus said, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his own town.”
    Your family will never be reached by you compromising.
    This is what Lot did, trying to fit in with the culture around him.
    You can never reach a person by sinking to their level.
    Read: Judges 7:2–3
    God wants the glory for the work He does.
    There is always God’s part, and there is our part.
    The Red Sea parted, but Israel had to still march through.
    Fear is contagious.
    Read: Judges 7:4–5
    We, too, are in a spiritual battle, and God is looking for men and women today who will let their light shine in a dark place.
    Jesus made radical statements about commitment that caused thousands to leave because He knew these fickle multitudes were simply fair-weather followers.
    There are many in the church today that follow God in the sunshine, but when hardship or tragedy comes, they lose their faith.
    The faith that cannot be tested is the faith that cannot be trusted.
    The Lord is looking for some men and women who will blow the trumpet and are willing to take some chances and obey God, taking a stand first in their own homes.
    Nicodemus had a weak beginning but a strong finish.
    Better that than a strong beginning and a weak finish!

    November 8, 2023 Angels and Demons | A Deeper Look at Angels

    The sum total of what many people know about angels came from a movie . . . or a TV show . . . or a book . . . or social media. But whether it came from a screenplay or a novel, it was fiction. Someone made it up. And it may have left real angels rolling on the floor laughing. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to the authoritative source on angels. We’ll read the words of the Creator of angels with Scripture. It’s from the series called “Timeless.”

    November 7, 2023 How to Know the Will of God | Navigating Uncertain Circumstances

    Most pilots follow an unwritten rule: if they flip a certain switch and the plane suddenly starts going crazy, they switch it back. Pretty basic. Well, spiritually, if we think a certain path we’ve chosen is God’s will for our lives but then our lives suddenly fall apart, maybe it’s worth reconsidering. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie brings helpful insights on following God’s will for our lives. It’s practical help for those of us who are unsure about God’s direction.

    November 5, 2023 Give Me This Mountain! | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie delivers a message on spiritual growth from Joshua 14. He reminds us of Caleb, a man who started and ended his spiritual race well!
    Notes:
    “What has been the greatest surprise of your life? ‘The brevity of it,”’ said Billy Graham.
    Philippians 3:13–14
    Keep moving forward spiritually—the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.
    “The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places.”
    Psalm 16:6
    It doesn’t matter if we’ve held first for the first laps; we must finish!
    Acts 20:24
    Caleb started and finished well, never losing his spiritual edge!
    We are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
    We are to pray that both Palestinians and Jews will come to Christ.
    Joshua 14:11–12
    Where did Caleb get this strength, stamina, and longevity?
    Read: Joshua 14:7–8
    We must wholeheartedly follow the Lord (six times in the Bible we learn that Caleb wholeheartedly followed).
    The majority group did not see God for who He is, only problems.
    The minority group (Joshua and Caleb) saw God for who He is, and also saw the obstacles and challenges, but they also saw opportunities and great victories if they would attack.
    To have spiritual longevity and finish well, you don’t follow the crowd.
    Caleb, who wholeheartedly followed the Lord, had principles … being more concerned with God’s approval than mans!
    To have spiritual longevity, you must take God at His Word!
    Remember that God’s delays are not necessarily His denials.
    To have spiritual longevity, you must fight to the very end, as the Christian life is one of constant growth and learning. It is taking on new challenges and looking for new opportunities.
    Spiritual battle rages to the end of your life.
    “I (Caleb) am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me.”
    Joshua 14:11
    It was the first love Caleb maintained, causing him to not lose his first strength.
    “Give me this mountain!”
    Joshua 14:12
    Jesus Christ is coming again, so let’s be busy doing the Lord’s work.
    We are to remember Jesus at the communion table.
    1 Corinthians 11:26

    November 3, 2023 The Secret to Spiritual Success | The Power of the Scriptures

    Our minds have a cruise control function, it would seem. We can be driving down a
    familiar road, paying only a modicum of attention, and wonder when that last mile went by. Our minds weren’t really in the moment. We can unfortunately follow that same pattern when we read Scripture, especially if we’re trying to read a certain volume of passages as a goal. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie reminds us of the tremendous power of God’s Word to instruct, to inspire and to inspect.

    October 30, 2023 The Holy Spirit & You, Part 2 | Allowing the Holy Spirit to Lead

    Some believers wish there were a tried and true formula for bringing someone to Christ. Memorize these verses, rehearse these statements. If they ask this, you say that. Well, preparation is good . . . but sometimes people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the Holy Spirit is the One who draws people to Christ. We can certainly plant a seed, but we have to allow for the Spirit’s work in their lives.

    October 29, 2023 Don't Make Deals With the Devil | Sunday Message

    Sometimes we like to justify sin as a "little" sin, but that "little" sin can continue to grow until it takes us over. Pastor Greg Laurie addresses this issue in the Christian life, encouraging us not to give the devil even an inch.
    Notes:
    The devil is looking for vulnerabilities in our lives.
    The Bible tells us that Satan can take many forms: he can come in open wickedness as the devil of Hell and a fiery dragon, or he can masquerade as an angel of light.
    Read: Joshua 9:3–6
    The spiritual battle never stops.
    You are being attacked because you are a threat to the devil and his kingdom.
    People come into the church and say they are seekers, but sometimes they are sneakers.
    Judas was an affective actor, and no one suspected he was the betrayer.
    Do not make deals with the devil; you will be the loser!
    “Don’t give place to the devil.”
    Ephesians 4:27
    If you give the devil an inch, he will take a mile!
    God can intervene if we have made a bad decision.
    Abortion is never an option … ever!
    We do not control what hand is dealt to us in life.
    We need to pray about things before we decide.
    Joshua 9:14
    Always start with Scripture!
    God speaks to us through His peace.
    Colossians 3:15
    God’s peace can act as an umpire in your life.
    Don’t be crippled by your past; learn from it!
    You cannot sell your soul; it’s not yours to sell.
    On the cross, Jesus broke all deals with the devil.
    Colossians 2:15

Now, spiritually speaking, there are invisible forces at work that want to help us and save us,  although other forces want to destroy us. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the work of God’s Spirit acquaints us with our sin, and acquaints us with our Savior. It’s important we know how to respond.

And yet the Holy Spirit calls out to us, drawing us to the Lord. It’s the wise person who heeds that call. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that’s just one of the jobs of the Holy Spirit. He has a multi-dimensional role in the lives of believers. And few of us know just how involved He is in our lives. It’s about time for the whole story.

Yeah, those laws are reportedly still on the books. Mankind came up with some doozies. So why do we let the culture dictate what’s right and wrong? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, as Pastor Greg Laurie continues his series called “Timeless,” we’ll continue our look at the attributes of our God.

    God parted the waters of the Red Sea, He caused time to stand still, He caused time to go backwards! He protected Daniel in the Lion’s Den, and the three Hebrew teens in the fiery furnace. Jesus fed multitudes with table scraps, healed the sick, raised the dead, and conquered the grave. And don’t forget all of creation! Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how powerful God is, and how your gigantic problem is no match for an omnipotent God.

    October 15, 2023 Overcoming or Overcome? | Sunday Message

    From Joshua chapter 5–6, Pastor Greg Laurie reminds us to be steadfast in our faithfulness. Just as the Israelites trusted the Lord to deliver the promised land, we can trust Him with the challenges in our life.
    Notes:
    The Bible tells us that the final conflict of man would be centered on Jerusalem.
    Jerusalem will be the focal point of End Times events.
    Jerusalem plays a key role in the Last Days.
    Zechariah 12:2–3
    We need to pray for Israel and their military, that they prevail in this war; but as Christians, we also need to pay attention to the potential prophetic significance.
    Ephesians 6:10–13
    Satan often attacks us in our minds and imaginations.
    2 Corinthians 11:3
    We must learn how to guard our minds.
    2 Corinthians 10:4
    You are the air traffic controller of your mind!
    Read: Joshua 5:13–15
    To enter the land of promises, you must encounter and follow Christ.
    The first step to winning the spiritual battle is to stand close to Jesus.
    Ephesians 6:10
    Read: Joshua 6:1–5
    God will work in different ways and in different situations, so we look to Him, whether it’s Joshua with trumpets, or Gideon with torches and pitchers.
    God uses weaknesses to show His strength!
    Jesus would touch a person, and they would be healed.
    People would touch Jesus, and they would be healed.
    Jesus would speak, even spit on the ground, and wipe it, and they would be healed.
    When we get to the end of ourselves, we get to the beginning of God.
    God will often do His work in ways that seem unusual or even counterintuitive.
    Isaiah 55:8
    If you want success, don’t seek it; seek the Lord!
    Matthew 6:33
    If you want to be happy, you must learn to be sad!
    If you want to be great, serve others!
    Mark 9:35
    God had the Israelites walk around Jericho to show they needed Him.
    The greatest difficulty for many is to get to the place where we admit we need God and are prepared to admit that the whole thing is simply too big for us.
    The Canaanites could have believed and been spared, but they refused.
    They Israelites overcame their enemy by faith, not by feeling.
    Hebrews 11:30
    Faith does not take “no” for an answer.
    It’s not just faith; it’s also patience.
    Hebrews 6:12
    The moment you are ready to quit may be the moment right before the miracle happens!
    Galatians 6:9
    Revelation 11:15
    Guard your mind and your heart; do not retreat, attack!

    October 14, 2023 “This Is Our Darkest Hour” | An Interview with Joel Rosenberg on Israel, Hamas, and Bible Prophecy

    Greg Laurie sits down with New York Times bestselling author Joel Rosenberg to discuss the war in Israel, Hamas, and Bible prophecy. 
    To support Harvest's relief efforts in Israel, just go to https://harvest.org/israel-relief-fund/ 
    Transcript of Full Interview:
    Greg Laurie: Hey everybody, Greg Laurie here with an exclusive interview with my friend Joel Rosenberg who is an absolute expert on what is going on in the Middle East. Joel was born in the United States but has actually moved to Israel and is in Jerusalem right now and has dual citizenship as both an American and Israeli citizen.
    So I think he's uniquely qualified to talk about what's happening there. And also Joel has written many best selling books that deal with issues in the Middle East as well. So, Joel, thank you so much for taking the time to talk just a little bit about what is happening. I think what is unique about this attack, Joel, as you know well, is it isn't against soldiers.
    It's against women and children. And even babies have been killed and decapitated, and even survivors of the Holocaust have been taken away, some murdered, some now hostages. Why is this happening at this moment in time? And the bigger question: how is it that Israel with its state-of-the-art intelligence and technology and everything else at her disposal did not detect this was coming?
    Joel Rosenberg: Well very hard questions, but important ones, but you're asking two questions. So the first is why why is it happening? Well, There are several answers to that question. The first answer is, is that you have to look not at Hamas. Hamas is a terrorist organization. They're horrible. They're basically like ISIS.
    But they're—they don't control themselves. They're funded by somebody. The terrorist regime in Iran. They 're armed by somebody. That's the terrorist regime in Iran. They are directed by somebody, and that's the leaders of Iran. So, it's not a Hamas operation. It is, tactically.
    But this is coming from the leaders, the supreme leader of Iran, and what does the Supreme Leader of Iran want? He wants several things. Ultimately, he wants to commit genocide. He's been very open. He wants to wipe Israel off the map and kill every Jew that lives here. So that's the first, his first objective.
    But, but he has sub-objectives. To get there, to his genocidal, apocalyptic, end of the world—usher in the coming of their Messiah known as the Mahdi, if you annihilate every Jew and every Christian, to get there, what are they trying to do? Well, they're trying to lure Israel into a ground war in the Gaza Strip, which we're going to have to do now. But, but they want to lure us in. Why? We're the biggest, most powerful military in the entire Middle East. We're the superpower here. Why would a terrorist organization, small, be directed by a big country like Iran to go after the biggest military in the region, us, Israel?
    And the reason is not because the Supreme Leader right now doesn't just want to see dead Jews. He wants to see dead Palestinians. Why would he want to see dead Palestinians? Because every dead Palestinian will be a television image that will be on MSNBC, CNN, CBS Evening News, the front page of the New York Times, the Washington Post, the LA Times, to turn the script from Israel is, oh, Israel's the high-tech innovator and they're making peace with all these Arab countries—maybe Saudi Arabia next?
    No, the, the Iranians wanna flip that script to make us look like the monsters of the region when they're the monsters. Right? So that's the objective right now. Blow up the peace process and make the whole world think that we're monsters for doing what? Defending ourselves.
    Greg Laurie: Yeah.
    Joel Rosenberg: But you're right. You just described it, and it's not just 1,200 civilians were murdered. They were set on fire while they were alive. They were burned in their homes. Mothers were shot while their children watched. Children were shot to death while their mothers watched. The babies were decapitated.
    This isn't just wrong, it's demonic. And that's what we're up against, and they infiltrated our homes, and they caught us by surprise. Now, your second question was, how could we get caught by surprise? And the answer is, we don't know yet. In a general sense, Greg, I'll keep it short, because I know you've had other questions, but the general sense that I think is, the political, military, and intelligence establishment in Israel, I think, got lulled into a false sense of security, in which we are making peace with all of our neighbors, increasingly.
    And the Saudis seemed next. And they may still be, but who knows now? And I think they just let their guard down. But the problem is: it's true that things are getting better in this region, but there are still demons. And if you let the demons out of the cave and let them roam the countryside, they will, you know, let the wolves out.
    They're gonna eat the sheep. And so... That's what happened, and it's devastating, and there will be political ramifications and repercussions. But right now, I'll just say this, Hamas has managed to do in five days what no Israeli was able to do all year, and that's unify Israel. One of the main opposition leaders is a guy named, that I know personally, Benny Gantz—former Defense Minister and Chief of Staff of the IDF. He, just this afternoon said, yes, he will join Netanyahu. His party will join, and he will help Netanyahu win the war—even though those two don't see eye to eye on almost anything. So that's a sliver of hope in a very dark time. This is our darkest hour.
    Greg Laurie: You know, you stop and think about, I mean, if we look at this proportionally, this would be like an attack in the United States where 30,000 people were murdered—because it's hard for us to realize how devastating this is for a nation the size of Israel. But, you know, we'll often hear about, "Well, no, what about the plight of the Palestinian people?"
    And that will be brought forward. But in reality, I don't think this is about a two-state solution. I think this is about a final solution—to use the verbiage of the Nazis.
    When your enemy, Iran, vows publicly over and over again to wipe Israel off the face of the map, how can you negotiate with someone who doesn't want you to exist? But this is often the way it's presented—as Israel being in the position of the occupier, the colonial occupying power there, when in reality, God gave this land to Israel.
    Joel Rosenberg: This is what we're up against. Now, in the first five days or so, I would say that the international community and the international media, even the left-wing American media, has actually been pretty sympathetic to Israel, because, because we're on defense, and I gotta tell you—and this sympathy is good—but why are people sympathetic?
    People are sympathetic to Jews when we're dying, but when we start fighting back—watch, Greg, you know this, but your audience needs to understand that as we start shifting from defense to offense, the United Nations is going to turn against Israel. The members, the left-wing members of Congress, they're going to turn against Israel.
    The American media, the international media, they're going to turn against Israel, and they're going to say, you're the monsters, and already we've heard—again, I don't want to make this political, I'm just saying, you know—a certain Secretary of State, who happens to live in Washington, he's calling for a de-escalation. He's calling for a ceasefire. But if you had a school in Orange County, in Riverside, let's say, and it was an elementary school, and there were maybe three or four mass shooters coming in just, just shooting children with AR-15s, and the SWAT team arrived and all the police arrived and surrounded it, can you imagine if the mayor and of your community said, "Hey," to the police, "Deescalate, man."
    You gotta cease fire. Cease fire? No, you go arrest those guys, or you blow their heads off. That's justice. That's why God says that government wields the sword to bring justice. And it's not the same. The moral equivalence of terrorists killing babies and chopping their heads off is not the same as the police, or in this case the army, instituted by God to protect and to crush the enemy, and that's, but that level of moral equivalence—but in a world where people don't know who men and women are, you know, are they gonna know what right and wrong is what, who are the good guys and bad guys?
    So watch for this.
    Greg Laurie: Yeah.
    Joel Rosenberg: It's why I do what I do with all original news and my show on TBN, the Rosenberg Report to try to get the truth out there and, and educate Christians so they can pray and help in a very, you know, with knowledge.
    Greg Laurie: Right. Let's sort of pull the camera back 'cause you know, you're definitely an expert on Bible prophecy. You've written about it in your novels, but you speak on it. Talking about Iran backing Hamas. That seems to me to be an established fact that Iran is backing Hamas. And we know that there's a close relationship now that has developed between Iran and Russia that's very unique.
    And it's only happened fairly recently. And I don't understand why that would be in question with our government as to the Iranian connection to Hamas. I know you've spoken out about that. What are your thoughts?
    Joel Rosenberg: Well, unfortunately leaders at the highest level in the United States are saying that they don't see any connection between this attack, and they don't say—they say we have no evidence that it was directed by Iran.
    Wait a minute, in a court of law in Orange County, if somebody holds a gun and points it at you and it goes off, let's say Alec Baldwin, but let's—you know, let's take him out of the—but like, "I didn't mean it, I didn't know it was going to happen," but if you aim a loaded gun at somebody's face and it goes off.
    You're guilty of murder, maybe manslaughter, but you can't say—so Iran has built Hamas into a terrorist organization, given them weapons, given them training, given them money, and if you say at the last minute, well, they didn't give the direction, maybe, on this specific, like, "Go do this," they're still guilty.
    So, why would the American government right now be letting Iran, the biggest terror regime on the planet, why let them off the hook? But I think we will find out that there was actually directives. It doesn't really matter. You know, you have to be willfully blind to to say that Iran is not in charge.
    Now, the danger is, and this is what's up on All Israel News right now as our lead story, the risk is that Iran will direct another terrorist organization, known as Hezbollah, in Lebanon to launch a second front against us. Hezbollah is much bigger, much stronger. They have 150,000 missiles, much more powerful, even with precision guidance.
    So the rockets that come out of Gaza—it's like a Russian roulette, they just point in one way and they just go, but they don't have precision guidance. Many of the missiles coming out of Lebanon do, so the danger is—I wrote a novel about that too, The Beirut Protocol, that was two years ago, like, that scenario that I wrote about fictionally, let's pray it's fiction, but it might not be.
    Now prophetically, all right, let's do the short version of the prophecies. Look, could this set into motion the War of Gog and Magog? It could, but it's not playing out right now the way the text says, so I think that's unlikely. I think, here's what's more likely. Israel is making peace with all of its neighbors, increasingly, but until—but Ezekiel 38 says that Israelis are feeling—are living securely in the land.
    Greg Laurie: That's right.
    Joel Rosenberg: And they don't have gates and bars. Well, we have a wall between us and Gaza, but they blew it up, and there's a wall between Israel and the West Bank. That's why we've been so secure. Those walls probably won't exist when the war of Gog and Magog actually takes place. So what would have to happen?
    Well, by killing so many Jews, Israelis no—Israeli government no longer can say, well, we'll try to do a few pinprick airstrikes. No, we're preparing for a full-on invasion, and what will happen? It will be bloody. Greg, your people have to be prepared that they're going to see terrible casualties on the Israeli side.
    And many of my friends, young men—I had two sons that served in the army, but they— one, you know, one of them in a special forces unit, he was so badly injured in his time in the army that they don't—they're not calling them back up in reserve, but I have, they've got, friends that are in right now. They're on the board. They're ready to go in. I think what's going to happen—I think there's going to be a full-on invasion, and it's going to be very bloody, and there's going to be a lot of deaths on both sides, a lot of casualties, but then I think Hamas will have been cleaned out, finally, from Gaza, and then a moderate government, hopefully, will be established, and they, and they'll want to rebuild and, you know, have a peaceful life on the Mediterranean, and, you know, they could have a Palestinian paradise.
    Remember, Israel doesn't occupy the Gaza Strip. In 2005, our Prime Minister pulled all Israeli civilians and all Israeli soldiers out of the Gaza Strip and gave the territory to the Palestinian people as a gift, saying, "Look, you want it, we don't. There it is. It's yours. Have a paradise. Build a paradise."
    But they built a terror—I mean, Hamas took over and built a terror regime instead. So we need to be praying for the two million Palestinians who live under the reign of terror of Hamas. We have compassion on them. We gotta pray that the leaders of Hamas will convert to Jesus or die. And then we got to pray that this war will be successful, and it'll be over.
    And then there may be an actual defeat formally and finally of the Palestinian armed resistance movement. And they'll finally say, look, rather than peace we've all—the Palestinian leadership has always wanted, they don't want peace with Israel, they want peace instead of Israel, they want all of Israel, but if they finally lose the way the Japanese lost, I mean, not with nuclear weapons, I'm not saying that, the way the Japanese, the Germans, once a country is fully defeated, they can become peaceful and go, "All right, we," you know, "we're, we're not going to fight anymore, let's build a healthy society," that's what we want. And if that were to happen over the next few months, years, that would really set into motion as something that right now feels so dark, but could in fact be part of God's prophetic plan.
    We'll have to see.
    Greg Laurie: Yeah. You know, 2 Chronicles 7:14 is often quoted, but in this particular situation, it's really contextual because it was given by God to Israel. When He says, "If my people which are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land."
    Joel, tell us a little bit about the spiritual state of Israel, specifically focused on the church. And by that, I mean, believers in Jesus. I know you have. Messianic Jews like yourself who have embraced Jesus as your Messiah. But then there are Gentiles in the Arab world— people who've come to Christ as well—in Palestine.
    So talk about the work of the Holy Spirit among people on both sides of this conflict right now in Israel.
    Joel Rosenberg: Sure. Well, two things on that. The first thing is God often allows, and we see this all throughout scripture, he allows terrible things to happen to Israel. to wake us up, shake us, and it's not that—it's not that the evil is the thing that God wants, but He's gonna—He sort of lets go of Israel a bit, and lets the evil come that Satan is—why?
    To get people to turn to Him. And unfortunately most Israelis are not looking to Jesus. They're not looking to the Bible. They don't read the Bible. So, as you know, we started 17 years ago, my wife and me, a ministry called the Joshua Fund. And over the last 17 years, by the total grace of God, we were sort of blown away by the whole thing.
    The Lord has allowed us to raise and invest almost a hundred million dollars in strengthening the local church in Israel and the Palestinian territories—and Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, and Egypt, and humanitarian relief, and my main focus, educating the church to understand God's love and plan for Israel and our neighbors and the prophecies over the future and how to invest in and strengthen the church today so it can fulfill the Great Commission, which has not been fulfilled in 2,000 years.
    You know, we, we often say, Greg, I've said it to you, if it were easy to reach Israel with the gospel, it would have been done by now. It's the first country. He came to his own. the Jews, and his own received them not. But we are heading towards a Romans 11:26 world, where all Israel will get saved. So to make that concise, the Joshua Fund is literally on the front lines.
    I mean, we have humanitarian relief, teams all over the country on a normal day, but especially right now. And people could, you know, if they're thinking, well, how do I help? Help through the Joshua Fund. Not only are we doing the gospel and strengthening pastors and, and equipping the church in very practical and specific ways, but we're doing humanitarian relief all through the local churches so that—nobody knows about the Joshua Fund in Israel. But they receive the humanitarian relief and the emergency aid through local Israeli and Palestinian believers who love Jesus and speak the language and are your neighbors. That's the most practical way to bless Israel right now. And the needs are enormous.
    Greg Laurie: Oh, absolutely. And for anybody watching this, I completely endorse what you're doing and you've been doing it for so long and doing it so well.
    So I just wanted to close: Thank you again for this time. But how can we best pray for you and the nation right now of Israel?
    Joel Rosenberg: Well, I appreciate it. Well, for the nation, obviously, we need to pray that our leaders, yes, come together. I'm encouraged by today. We broke the story, actually, at All Israel News. Nobody else had reported yet that there was going to be this unity government, but we, we broke that story, and it's now being confirmed. So, remember the scriptures that say the sons of Issachar were men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do. Right. We need to pray because none of our leaders know Jesus personally, and so, and most aren't even religious, they don't read the Bible.
    So that's why we have to intercede, right? That's what the Christians do. We intercede for people who don't have the wisdom of God because they don't have God's spirit in them. We need to do that. We need to pray and intercede for Israelis and Palestinians who are grieving right now. And they're not going to experience the peace that passes all comprehension, because they don't know the God of peace.
    But we can intercede, just like Abraham interceded for Sodom and Gomorrah, and I'm not saying Israel is Sodom and Gomorrah right now, but, but that's intercession, right? Just as Jesus prayed and wept over the city of Jerusalem, saying, my people don't even understand this, Lord, help them, even from the cross, "Father, forgive them, they don't know what they're doing."
    So those are the ways to pray—comfort, healing, victory, rescuing the hostages, but also praying for the believers to be witnesses. I know a lot of believers who are in the combat units, they're getting ready to go into harm's way, and they may never come home, but they may be a witness, a bold witness for Yeshua, Jesus, while they're in motion.
    And then for us, you're asking, look, we need courage. We need stamina. It is around the clock here. And you know, we need to be walking in the Spirit every moment. It's easy to get so frantic trying to serve the Lord in a crisis that you're starting to move past your supply lines. You're not sitting and having a good quiet time.
    You know, you're praying, but it's like you're eating cotton candy throughout the day. Like, you're not—the Lord's with you, but you need to slow down and just let the Lord speak. Thinking of one last thing, Elijah and Elisha. It was Elisha and his young servant, you know, young servant wakes up, gets out of the tent, you know, looks around, he's surrounded by an enemy and he's freaking out and Elisha says something.
    He says, Lord, open his eyes that he can see that there's more of us than them. And, you know, you can feel it in the scriptures, you know, it doesn't say it, but the guy must have been like, you gotta be kidding me. What's this guy smoking? But Elisha prayed, the young man's eyes were opened. And he saw the chariots of fire.
    He saw the forces of God. That's what we need for ourselves and for the church to see the way God sees. He's got a plan. Satan has a plan, but God has a plan, and God's plan is going to win. So may we be strong, healthy, brave, and resilient during a very exhausting, painfully brutal time. Again, the darkest hour I've ever gone through.
    And certainly my nation of Israel has ever gone through in the modern era.
    Greg Laurie: So Joel, would you close us in prayer? You pray for the nation Israel and for your people. And then I'll pray after your prayer for you and your family and your ministry. So please go ahead and pray for the nation.
    Joel Rosenberg: Father in Heaven, Abba, Lord, we love you.
    And we thank you that you are the God of Israel. You are Shomer Yisrael. You're the guardian of Israel, and you neither slumber nor sleep. I need more sleep. I need some slumber, but you don't need that. And so I pray that first you'd fill Lynn and me and our family and our team with your Holy Spirit.
    Don't let us operate in the flesh. Don't let us outrun our supply lines and be disconnected from you. And don't let— and we also pray that you would suit us up in your full armor, literally and figuratively, because we need you to extinguish the fiery missiles that are literally and spiritually coming our way.
    Greg Laurie: Yes.
    Joel Rosenberg: And then help us put the oxygen mask on others and be able to help and provide that care through the Joshua Fund, through All Israel News and so forth. And we pray for our nation's leaders, you give them wisdom, Lord. They don't have it. That's how we got to this problem. But, but you will provide it.
    If they will ask, and even if they don't ask, we're asking on their behalf, Lord, we know you; they don't. So we ask for wisdom and victory. Yes. Rescuing of all of our hostages back safely, just like in the times of David. And we also pray for comfort and healing, spiritual, physical, emotional, for every child, every mother, every son, every father, every grandparent who is grieving and traumatized.
    By the worst attack in the history of Israel, and we also pray for our Palestinian neighbors, Lord, have mercy on them, and we pray for our enemies, the leaders of Iran and the leaders of Hamas, Lord, convert them to Jesus, miraculously, or remove them from the Earth. Lord, please, we pray these things humbly, knowing that you, I think of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
    Lord, we know You can rescue us, but even if You don't, Lord, we're going to stick with You. We're not going to bow down to the world. We're not going to bow down to fear and the enemy. But we want You to move powerfully so that You get the glory, not us. And that all is, you'll know there's a God in Heaven.
    Greg Laurie: Father, I thank you for Joel and his wife, Lynn. I thank you for the team around him there at the Joshua Fund, put Your hand of protection upon them. Give them the strength. They need the energy. They need the provision, the finances they need. And use them as a bright light right now in this very dark time in the nation of Israel.
    Among your people that you brought back to the land of fulfillment of Bible prophecy. And we know one day that many of them will turn to you and we pray that day will come soon. And we pray even through this conflict that many will realize that there is a God in Heaven who loves them so much. He sent His son, Jesus.
    Right there to Israel to be born in Bethlehem, to die in Jerusalem, to rise from the dead. And it is there in the Holy land that He will return again. And so Lord, we commit this all to you now, and we ask your blessing on Joel and his ministry. And we pray this in the name of Yeshua and everyone watching said Amen.
    Joel, thank you so much for joining us and God bless you and stay in touch. And we'll keep praying for you and I hope to see you soon.
    Joel Rosenberg: I would love that. Thank you, Greg. Bless you, Cathe, and your entire team.
    Greg Laurie: Thanks.

    October 13, 2023 The Power of One, Part 2 | The Effect of Our Choices

    People who attend class reunions are often surprised. Sometimes, the more popular people way back when have lost that prominence . . . and the prominent people today were the wallflowers years ago. And that’s not really random or accidental. It has to do with the choices they made. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie shows us how the choices we make in how we serve God will affect the here and now, and will likely affect the hereafter as well. We’ll learn to chose well.

    October 12, 2023 The Power of One, Part 1 | The Example of Moses

    Throughout the Bible, we see stories of God using individuals to accomplish great things: Noah, Abraham, David, Solomon. Sometimes there’s strength in numbers, but other times there’s supernatural strength in a humble man or woman saying yes to God. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us open ourselves to being used by God by looking to the example of Moses. It’s an inspiring presentation from Pastor Greg’s series Water - Fire - Stone.

    Ever had a stain appear on an article of clothing? Maybe you try to wipe it clean. Maybe you try vinegar and baking soda . . . or one of the “revolutionary” new products from the store.

    October 8, 2023 Get Your Feet Wet! | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie gives us wisdom from Joshua 3–4, where we see the Israelites cross the Jordan River.
    Notes:
    The Christian life is not a playground but a battleground, and there’s not really a choice of fighting or not fighting; it’s a choice of victory or defeat.
    Deuteronomy 6:23
    “He brought us out, that He might bring us in.”
    The people of Canaan were wicked.
    When people repent, God relents!
    Read: Joshua 3:4–8
    If we want to enter the land of promises, we must be bold and strong!
    Joshua 3:4
    Habakkuk 3:2
    “Lord, I have heard of Your fame; I stand in awe of Your deeds. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath, remember mercy.”
    The Three R’s of Revival:
    Remember, repent, and repeat.
    If you want to live in the land of promises, you must keep your eyes on God.
    Joshua 3:4
    When we are looking to Jesus, it will change the way we see our circumstances!
    If you want to live in the land of promises, you must take risks!
    If you are called to lead, you must go first and set the pace.
    Joshua 3:7
    If you want to be a good leader, first be a good follower.
    Joshua and the people of Israel moved in faith!
    Faith is like a muscle; it gets stronger through use, but if you don’t use it, it will atrophy!
    If you are called to be a leader, then lead!
    Romans 12:7–8
    Sometimes a step of faith will not necessarily make much sense!
    Remember to give thanks with as much passion as you prayed for help!
    Read: Joshua 4:21–24
    Judges 2:8–10
    Children will remember the time you made for them. Children will remember the way you interacted with your spouse. Your kids will remember your words of affirmation and criticism.
    To train up means, “to create a thirst in.”
    It’s never too late for a new beginning!

    When you’re driving clear across the country, you might encounter the Rocky Mountains. A huge mountain range. Pikes Peak alone jets up more than 14,000 feet into the sky. But when you fly over those mountains on an airliner, it kinda looks like the same ground you saw an hour ago but with more . . . texture. So it is with differing perspectives. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie brings us God's reassuring perspective on our "mountain-sized" problems.

It may have warmed your heart, but you were still ankle deep in water. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that God can bless us when we need Him most, and with just what we need the most. It’s as if He knew all along!

    October 3, 2023 How to Have Friendship with God | Approaching God in Prayer

    The Lord never advises us to approach His throne gingerly, with reluctance and

Even though He’s “God most high,” Hebrews invites us to “come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points to the example of Moses, who showed us how to approach the Lord with uncommon courage and confidence. We’ll get some practical insight on taking our prayer lives to the next level.

    October 2, 2023 How to Have Friendship with God | Intercessory Prayer

    Mature believers talk to others about God. And they also talk to God about others. Do you regularly pray for others . . . pray for their needs, pray they might come to the Lord or come closer to the Lord? Our mission statement here at A NEW BEGINNING is Knowing Him and Making Him Known. And intercessory prayer is a vital instrument in that pursuit. So today, Pastor Greg Laurie continues his series on the life of Moses uncovering the leader’s faithful ministry of intercessory prayer.

    At various times, we all come down with a case of the “gimmes.” Gimme this, gimme that. And nearly every advertisement feeds that craving. Whatever they say, what they really mean is, “You want one of these, don’t you?” A new car, a new phone, a new outfit. But today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the biblical reference to coveting goes even beyond the gimmes. “I don’t just want one...I want YOURS.” Today, we’ll see it’s addressed in the 10 Commandments.

    September 24, 2023 Between Impossible and More Impossible | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie gives great encouragement and guidance for navigating the seemingly impossible. 
    Notes:
    The flood had come, and the Earth was covered in water.
    Genesis 8:1
    Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery and thought him dead.
    Genesis 50:20
    Death does not have the final word.
    Psalm 49:15
    God is bigger than any obstacle!
    God will always have the last word!
    Hebrews 11:25–26
    “Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin. Esteeming the reproach of Christ for greater riches than the treasures in Egypt, for he looked to the reward.”
    Before you can face an impossible situation, God needs to prepare you.
    Exodus 13:17–18
    Before you can face an impossible situation, remember that God’s way is always the right way.
    Christ Himself lives inside us, guiding and speaking to us through Scripture.
    Isaiah 55:12
    “You shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace.”
    God knows things that we don’t!
    Isaiah 30:21
    Genesis 1:27
    “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female He created them.”
    Don’t let this culture guide you—look to God and His Word!
    Ecclesiastes 2:10–11
    Ecclesiastes 12:13
    “The last and final word is this: Fear God and do what He tells you. And that’s it.”

    Exodus 14:10
    “As Pharaoh approached, the people of Israel looked up and panicked when they saw the Egyptians overtaking them …”
    It took God one night to get Israel out of Egypt, but it took 40 years to take Egypt out of Israel!
    When facing an impossible and more impossible situation, pray!
    Exodus 14:11
    Faith and worry cannot coexist because one chases the other away.
    “Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything…”
    Philippians 4:6
    Our relationship with Christ is not about what we do for Jesus but what Jesus has done for us!
    Unbelief tends to create or magnify our difficulties.
    Faith raises the soul above the difficulty.
    When led by the Lord, make your move!
    Exodus 14:15–16
    World changers take bold, radical steps of faith! The more you use your faith, the stronger it gets! World changes see opportunities; the worldly see obstacles.
    To face the impossible, you must walk by faith, not feelings.
    Exodus 14:21
    We would prefer it if God would let us go around the Red Sea, but sometimes He wants us to walk through it.
    God is bigger than your problems! After overcoming the impossible, give God the glory.
    Exodus 15:1–2
    Jesus was born to die so that we might live.

    The Bible tells us God is love. Yes, He’s loving, but First John 4:8 says God IS love. And it says, “He who does not love does not know God . . .” So it should come as no surprise that hatred is not a part of God’s plan for believers. But today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie addresses the hatred we see around us in our culture. What are we as believers to do? Good insight is coming.

    September 19, 2023 What's the Big Deal with God's Name? | God's Blueprint

    If we follow God’s blueprint for life, our lives will go better. You can depend on that. If we ignore God’s blueprint, our lives will face more challenges and heartache. But sometimes we think we’re the exception . . . or this situation is the exception. The sweet aroma of certain decisions can lead to the stench of bad destinations. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us consider more of the timeless wisdom we find in the 10 Commandments.

    September 18, 2023 What's the Big Deal with God's Name? | Honoring God's Name

    God Almighty is worthy of all glory and honor. We’re mere men and women under the umbrella of His divine authority. So how inappropriate is it to express some kind of disrespect or dishonor to God on high? It’s almost a question that doesn’t need to be asked. Yet so many dishonor the Lord by using His name inappropriately. Does it bother God? Well, today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that transgression is mentioned in God’s top ten list of commandments.

    September 17, 2023 How to Live a Successful Christian Life | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie starts a new series called, “Joshua: Living in the Land of Promises” with an encouraging message on living a successful Christian life.
    New believers tend to be on fire: excited for church, Bible studying, having a healthy prayer life. . . But then a backslide happens: going back to the same sins, neglecting prayer and Bible reading. . . In this message we'll see how we can put a stop to that.
    Notes
    Joshua is the story of the end of the wilderness wanderings of the Jewish people.
    God promises spiritual rest to those who believe in Him.
    Matthew 11:28
    Jesus promises eternal life to those who put their faith in Him.
    John 4:14
    Jesus promises a rich and satisfying life to those who follow Him.
    John 10:10
    The promises of God are like gift cards; they need to be claimed. God’s promises are exceedingly precious!
    For years, the Jewish people had cried out for someone to deliver them from Pharoah—God heard their cries and sent Moses to be that man.
    The Lord guided the Jewish people with the ultimate GPS: cloud by day, fire by night.
    Just as the Jewish people were slaves in Egypt, we were slaves to sin. Just as they took the Passover lamb and applied the blood to their homes, Jesus was the Passover Lamb slain for us, and we applied His blood in our lives.
    “Conversion has made our hearts a battlefield.”
    Ephesians 6:12
    Satan does not want you to follow Jesus Christ because he knows we are in the End Times.
    Revelation 12:12
    This is not really a choice of fighting or not fighting; it’s a choice of victory or defeat! In the Christian life, you are either an overcomer or you are overcome.
    Exodus 23:30
    “I will drive them out a little at a time…”
    No addiction needs to control you; no sin needs to have a foothold in your life.
    “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb.”
    They focused their attention on the obstacles instead of their objective. When you focus on the obstacles rather than the objective, fear will always eclipse your faith.
    Read: Joshua 1:1–5
    To succeed in the spiritual life, you must overcome fear and admit you need help.
    Joshua 1:6
    “Be strong and of good courage.”
    Joshua 1:7
    “Be strong and very courageous.”
    Joshua 1:9
    “Have I not commanded you?
    Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid.”
    Joshua 1:5–6
    “I will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and of good courage…”
    2 Timothy 1:6–9
    To succeed in the spiritual life, you must be consistent.
    Our job is to be faithful in our generation.
    Acts 13:36
    Joshua 1:5
    To succeed in the spiritual life, you must know and keep God’s Word.
    Joshua 1:8
    Meditate means, “to ponder, consider, contemplate.”
    Matthew 13:23
    You decide what soil you will be!
    Matthew 13:23
    “They hear and accept God’s Word.”
    Success or failure in our lives depends on how we hear God’s Word.
    Luke 12:48
    The golden key to spiritual growth is hearing, receiving, and obeying the Word of God.
    Jesus’ blood was shed for you on the cross!

It’s a chain of command . .  and there’s never any doubt who’s in charge in any situation. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps Christian soldiers realize their chain of command.

    September 14, 2023 "10", Part 2: No Other Gods | Is God Your Number One?

    We each have to make a decision in our relationship with God. Are we sold out . . . or are we a sell out? Are we sold out for the Lord, where He is number one and we don’t compromise? Or do we allow ourselves to sell out to the world and its lures? We face that question afresh each and every day. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that’s an issue that’s addressed up front in the 10 Commandments, and it’s a decision that affects our quality of life.

Sometimes it feels like the tire is bouncing down the roadway . . . the steering wheel wabbles, your seat vibrates and you wonder if you’re losing control. But a tire store can adjust that balance and give you a smooth ride once again. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie shows us how to adjust a life that’s out of balance. If your life is wabbling and it feels a little out of control, glad you pulled in for an adjustment today from the 10 Commandments.

    What time is it? No, really. What’s the exact time? How do we know what the exact time is? Maybe your clock is a few seconds different from mine. The defacto standard is International Atomic Time, a weighted average of time kept by over 400 atomic clocks in 50 laboratories worldwide. That’s the source that’s trustworthy. When it comes to right and wrong, Pastor Greg Laurie says the trustworthy standard is God’s Word. And we’ll consult that standard today on A NEW BEGINNING.

    September 11, 2023 The Desert Song | Remembering What's Important

    One of the great tools to memorization is repetition. If we hear something over and over, we can’t help but remember. We didn’t intend to memorize the words to that TV theme, or that corny commercial, but they’re stuck in our heads. Why? Repetition. The real question is, what do we let our minds hear over and over. But the fact you’re listening now is a great step forward. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie brings some scriptural truth worth remembering.

    September 10, 2023 How to Be a World Changer at the End of the World | Sunday Message

    Pastor Greg Laurie wraps up our end times series with a look at a modern day miracle and fulfillment of Bible prophecy: the nation Israel. He also focuses on how we should be living as believers waiting for the Lord’s return. 
    Notes
    Israel will be scattered.
    Israel will be regathered.
    Israel will regain Jerusalem.
    Israel will be isolated.
    Israel will be attacked.
     
    Jerusalem will be the focal point of End Times events.
     
    Jerusalem has been and always will be the Capital of Israel.
     
    Israel will be an “intoxicating drink,” “a heavy stone,” “and a burden for the world.”
    Zechariah 12:2–3
     
    Never has a nation been able to maintain its national identity, even 300–500 years after being removed from its homeland … until Israel!
     
    Read: Ezekiel 37:1–6
     
    Read: Ezekiel 37:11–14
     
    Read: Ezekiel 38:1–11
     
    America needs Israel more than Israel needs America!
     
    God made a promise to Abraham and his descendants in Genesis 12:3: “I will bless them that bless you, and I will curse those that curse you.”
     
    The Lord will send a national revival to Israel where they turn to Yeshua.
     
    The fact that God will pour out His Spirit on Israel shows that she will have a revival.
     
    Romans 11:25
     
    God has been pouring out His Spirit on the church, but that time is coming to an end when the last person has come to faith. Then, the Rapture happens.
     
    In light of the signs of the times, we will look at a Last Day’s believer, Noah.
     
    In this dark time, we need to shine as lights.
     
    Scripture says, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.”
     
    A world changer is someone who wants to change the culture.
     
    A world changer is a follower of Jesus Christ, and they affect their surroundings more than their surroundings affect them.
     
    A world changer, like Noah, are thermostats, not thermometers; they control the temperature and set the pace.
     
    Noah was commanded to build a giant boat.
    Hebrews 11:7
     
    Remember: The Ark was built by amateurs; The Titanic was built by professionals.
     
    God revealed secrets to Noah.
     
    Christians know things the world does not.
     
    It seems to be that openhearted Christians know we are in the Last Days.
     
    Noah had a great reverence for God.
    “Noah moved with Godly fear.”
    Hebrews 11:7
     
    To fear God does not mean we cower in fear before Him; it means we revere Him.
     
    God gave us the rainbow to remind us of His promise!
     
    The last page in the Bible states that we win in the end!
     
    One of the signs of the times is people will not think these are the Last Days.
    2 Peter 3:3
     
    Jesus told us our last days would be just like Noah’s time.
    Matthew 24:37–44
     
    Noah walked with God when no one else did.
    Genesis 6:9
     
    The prophet, Amos gives us a key as to what it means to walk with God.
    “Shall two walk together, except they have agreed?”
    Amos 3:3
     
     
    Noah was a witness for God.
    2 Peter 2:5
     
    “By faith, Noah being divinely warned of things not yet seen.”
    Hebrews 11:7
     
    A world changer will draw their family to Christ; but those changed by the world, drive their family from Christ.
     
    Noah has great reverence for God.
    Noah walked with God when no one else did.
    Noah was a witness for God.
     
    Jesus Christ is coming back again!

    September 8, 2023 The Desert Song | Finding Joy in the Eternal

    Smart grocery shoppers pay attention to expiration dates. You may see a dozen cartons of milk on the shelf . . . but a careful look shows that the expiration dates on some cartons are much further into the future. But sometimes we don’t think carefully about the other things of life that may affect us. Those things that bring quick enjoyment, often bring long-lasting disappointment. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us focus on the things above. It’s a study of Moses.

    September 7, 2023 Between Impossible & More Impossible | Get Moving

    GPS systems have come a long way over the years. They not only can show the best route, but traffic along the way, coffee stores, gas stations and fast food. You know exactly which way to go and how long it’ll take. But you still have to put the car in drive and get moving. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the same is true in our walk with God. After we’ve prayed for direction and strength, it’s time to get moving. It’s harder to steer a parked car.

    September 6, 2023 Between Impossible & More Impossible | The Source of Hope

    We love to watch movies where the hero is stuck in an impossible situation with time running out. Will he make it? Can he make it? And he’s rescued just in the nick of time. But when WE’RE stuck in a tough spot, it’s not nearly as enjoyable. No inspiring music – maybe just an icy, lonely silence. And it may look like our time is up. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie says don’t give up hope. Instead, realize where your hope comes from.

    September 5, 2023 The Passover: A New Beginning | The Solution for Sin

    Nearly all pain relievers on the market use the phrase “for fast, temporary relief.” Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen – they’ll give a little relief, for a little while. But when it comes to forgiveness of our sin, we’re more interest in “immediate, everlasting relief” from our guilt and guile. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, as Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to the story of the first Passover, we’ll see God provided a solution for sin that forever paid the price that had to be paid.

Today on A NEW BEGINNING, some biblical history and context as Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to the book of Exodus and Moses’ confrontation with the Pharaoh of Egypt . . . a confrontation that culminated one night in the death of all the first-born sons of Egyptians. But the Lord passed over and spared all the Jews.

They knew where to invest. What investments are a sure thing? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out we should invest our lives in our relationship with God and His plan. That’s a plan that never devalues, dwindles or depreciates. Today, we’re studying the life of Moses.

    Ever gotten into a dialogue with a telemarketer. You refuse his sales pitch, but he always has a rebuttal, a counter argument, a counter offer! Sometimes the best way to deal with him is just to say goodbye. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out we can use that same approach with our spiritual adversary. We can’t negotiate with sin, we can’t “come to an understanding” with evil, we can’t compromise with the Devil. Today, some insight from our study of the life of Moses.

    Wedding vows are pledges of loyalty and faithfulness to a spouse. You never hear a groom promising to “love, honor and cherish, but I’m still going to date some other girls on the side.” A good relationship is defined by how much we do for the other...not by how much we can get away with just ‘cause we want to. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that same dynamic applies in our spiritual lives...as we cling to the Lord, and resist our spiritual adversary.

    Some months ago, social media was ablaze with an interesting sound experiment. A certain recording sounded like the word “Laurel” to some people, and like “Yanny” to others. It was very interesting, and a bit odd. But we see the same thing on a spiritual level – two people can respond to a single Gospel message in two different ways. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the danger of listening with a hardened heart. And Pastor Greg begins with an admission.

The repairs are obvious...and beautiful! The Bible speaks of us as God’s workmanship. We may have some cracks and chips, but God can heal us in a beautiful way and make us vessels of honor.

And David, Rahab, Noah and Matthew would all tell you how God can use anyone, anywhere, anytime, under any circumstance. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how to make ourselves available for God’s plan. No matter where you’re at right now, you’re in the right spot to be used by the Lord.

    August 23, 2023 How God Can Turn Your Mess Into a Message | Recognizing God's Plan

    Our lives don’t always go according to plan. Or maybe we should say our lives don’t always go according to OUR plans. God knows what’s coming, He knows our heartache and our disappointment, He knows our strengths and limitations, and He has a plan hand-crafted for each of our lives. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us learn to recognize God’s plan in our lives and say yes to the Lord’s calling. That’s the most rewarding pathway you and I can travel.

    August 22, 2023 How God Can Turn Your Mess Into a Message | Put Your Faith on Display

    Those friends and associates you’re in contact with...they have a word for that group. It’s called your “circle of influence.” The key question is, what kind of influence do you have on your circle of influence? Do you draw them to Christ, or do they wonder what kind of Christian are you? Or would they be surprised you ARE a Christian? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us put ourselves out there on the front line for the Lord...he invites us to put our faith on display to everyone we meet.

    August 21, 2023 God Enough, Part 2 | The Time Is Right for God to Use You

    God can use just about anybody. He can use a former shoe salesman...such as D.L. Moody. He can use a young dairy farmer...such as Billy Graham. Or use an aimless young high school kid looking for answers...such as Greg Laurie. The Bible is full of people who seemed to lack ability but offered availability. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the time is right for God to use you. What’s holding you back from saying yes to what the Lord has in mind?

Or if Steve Jobs thought the flip phone was good enough. Those men changed their world. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that God wants to take us outside our comfort zone to change our world. It’s not about nations or cars or phones. It’s about letting God use us to impact people with an eternal message.

    The Bible helps us learn real lessons from real people. Sometimes we learn from their successes, sometimes we learn from their failures. But it helps to see principles lived out in real life. And currently on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie is helping us learn from the life of Moses. He was a great prophet, a true man of God...but he was a man with shortcomings and blind spots, as are we. And today, we’ll learn from Moses’ impulsiveness, and learn from his shortcomings.

    Certain advertisers used to be guilty of something called “Bait and Switch.” The consumer would get lured into the store by something the advertiser had no plan to deliver. So it goes with the way our adversary tries to bait us with his temptations...but sin never delivers guilt-free pleasure. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to an important case in point in the life of one of the Bible’s great Old Testament patriarchs. We’ll learn from his experience.

    The world has a knack for attempting to put a happy face on some deep, dark times of crisis. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” “Don’t worry, be happy.” “Look on the bright side.” But sometimes an earthquake so shakes our lives that there doesn’t seem to be a bright side. But...don’t mountains rise from earthquakes? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us see how God can help us rise above our pain, and He can put our past to use in the most fulfilling ways.

Now, the steering wheel is barely connected to your front wheels. Are you willing to hit the open highway without that control? Only if you like ditches. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, from the series Heroes of the Bible, Pastor Greg Laurie points out some people choose to do that with their very lives...and wind up in some kind of ditch.

Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out it’s even more important to finish the race of life well. There’s mortal danger, there’s uncertainty and breathless moments.

It’s the way that “seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie shows us an alternative. He helps us through the narrow gate. It won’t make us popular or politically correct. But better to live in a way that’s pleasing to God, even if it displeases people, rather than the other way around.

We’re studying the Bible’s great heroes.

    July 24, 2023 God's Answer to Fear, Anxiety & Worry, Part 1 | Free from the Worry Trap

    If worry were an Olympic sport, some of us would qualify for the Gold Medal. But, in reality, life gives us so much to worry about, doesn’t it? The world is a mess, on so many levels. And we all have issues on a personal level, as well. But so many times, we’re so much more attached to our burdens than our burdens are attached to us. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie begins a message designed to set us free from the worry trap. Good encouragement worth taking some notes.

    July 21, 2023 Power Over Death | The Lord Is Our Anchor

    Ever had your car break down out in the middle of nowhere...scorching heat...no cell service...no other cars to stop and help...no friendly, little farmhouse beckoning you in the distance? Crisis compounded by solitude. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out, we never have to face our challenges by ourselves. We’ll learn to reach out to the Lord in our times of need, and that He’s our anchor when we’re feeling helpless and hopeless. Good encouragement is coming.

    July 20, 2023 Power Over Death | When Earthly Answers Don't Satisfy

    Many people ask one question when tragedy strikes. Is the one-word question that reverberates in our very soul: “why?” Why did this have to happen? “Why...why me...why now...why this?” Maybe you’ve asked that question...or maybe you’ve tried to answer that question. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie addresses that challenge head on. When earthly answers don’t satisfy, we have to look to what God tells us in His Word. Truth that speaks to the heart.

    July 19, 2023 Believing Is Seeing | How Jesus Wants Us to Live

    It frankly would be hard to list all the things Jesus has done for us. The top of the list would be that He loved us enough to die for us. So here’s the question. If we love Jesus, what are we willing to do for Him? If He died for us, are we willing to live for Him? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to the Gospel of John for an important look at a well-known miracle. As we examine this account, we learn a lot about how Jesus wants us to live for Him and speak about Him.

    Believers have the opportunity to be salt and light in a world that desperately needs both. Our culture is marinating in sin and hopelessness, and we have the opportunity to point the way to hope and forgiveness. But will we stand up and speak out? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us recognize the difference we can make, and make the difference so many will recognize. If you’ve ever complained about the state of the world we live in, learn how your efforts can help turn the tide.

    July 17, 2023 Lunch with Jesus | Nothing Is Impossible for the Lord

    Our God can calm storms, create storms, part the waters of the Red Sea. He can make time literally stand still, He can raise the dead, and cause the deaf to hear. So what is it that you need today? Glad you’re along for A NEW BEGINNING as Pastor Greg Laurie helps us see nothing is impossible for the Lord. And He invites us to come to Him in prayer. He bids us to “ask, seek, and knock.” And when our petitions intersect with His willingness, big things can happen!

    July 14, 2023 Lunch with Jesus | Feeding the 5,000

    Sometimes, we treat prayer as a last resort. In reality, it’s our best option. And sometimes it’s our only option. So many of us could testify to the power of prayer, and even tell a story of how God came through just in the nick of time. So why aren’t we calling on God more often? And why don’t we let Him use us to step out boldly for Him? We’ll consider those questions today on A NEW BEGINNING as Pastor Greg Laurie helps us examine the feeding of the 5,000 in John chapter 6.

    How many of us are up in the wee hours of the morning worrying if the sun will rise? Didn’t it rise yesterday? And the day before? Has it not risen every day in all of human history?

Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us pause and consider the faithfulness and reliability of the Lord. In addition to making the sun rise each morning, we’ll see just how well God takes care of His own.

    July 12, 2023 Time to Clean House | Jesus Can Sort It Out

    The second law of thermodynamics says things tend toward disorder. As time goes on, things fall apart. When it comes to our homes, a clean room never stays that way for long. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out there’s a spiritual parallel. Our Christian lives can get messy and out of sorts. But we’ll learn Jesus can come in sort it out...if we let Him. Pastor Greg urges us to open the door and let Jesus have access to every room of our spiritual house.

    July 10, 2023 The Best is Yet to Come | What's Waiting for Believers

    We can make two mistakes when it comes to the afterlife. Some people think hell won’t be too bad. They joke that all their friends will be there – they’ll just party all the time. There won’t be any parties there. The other mistake we can make is thinking heaven isn’t all that good...especially if you don’t play the harp. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us see what’s really waiting for believers. We’ll learn about the abundant life in the here and now, and eternal life in the hereafter.

    Jesus didn’t tell us to argue someone into the kingdom of God...or to protest our culture into the faith...or even to isolate ourselves from those who don’t believe. Pastor Greg Laurie has said we’re not to isolate but infiltrate. We’re to be salt and light in a culture that needs the hope of the Gospel. Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg helps us set a course for taking this life-saving message to those whose eternal lives hang in the balance. It’s the very reason we’re here.

    July 6, 2023 It’s Time to Pray | Be On Speaking Terms With Our Heavenly Father

    We know prayer is a privilege. We know prayer is powerful. Prayer moves the hand that moves the world. But what some don’t realize is that God WANTS us to come to Him. He welcomes our petitions. He listens to our cries. And prayer can make a difference, even if we don’t feel worthy for such an important role. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie brings us insights on prayer straight from the Word of God. It’s good encouragement to be on “speaking terms” with our Heavenly Father.
