In today’s sermon from the 2017 Texas Labor day meeting, evangelist Clint De France considers the Biblical individual known as Simon the ‘zealot.’ What did his name mean, and more importantly, did he remain a zealot after he met the Lord?
And when they had entered, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas the son of James.
Have you ever wondered about how the Bible was so marvelously crafted by God and how that it arrived in its current form?
Perhaps skeptics have challenged you with questions about recent high profile ‘new’ gospels (such as the gospel of Thomas)? If so, this presentation by Mike Criswell will be very informative to you. We hope you find it a blessing.
Polling data shows that most Americans believe they will go to Heaven when they die. However, the Bible warns us that simply being a “decent person” is not enough to be accepted by the Lord. In fact, there are a number of ways a person can live a good life and still be condemned on the day of judgment.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1)
Unbelief is a necessary attribute of every Christian. We must test all teachings to see whether they are found in God’s word. In this sermon evangelist Clint Defrance discusses how Christians are to be like metallurgists testing metals as we run an ‘assay’ on every doctrine that we hear.
It’s easy to start, but often challenging to finish. This is true in many aspects of life, but especially when it comes to being a Christian. The word of God provides believers some tools to ensure, as evangelist Frank Brancato preaches in this sermon, we can go the distance with Jesus. Going The Distance MP3 Link
There is a difference between listening and hearing, and this is especially true when receiving the word of God.
