This Weekend at Harvest Riverside and Orange County.

July 30th, 2011 Posted in sermons

A lot is said about when Jesus is coming back.

Though there are many “signs of the times” we can be looking for that would alert us to the fact that His coming is near, we should not focus on the “when.” Instead, we need to be thinking about the “what.”
As in, what am I to be doing as I await the return of Christ?
As we bring our series, Ready or Not,  to a close, we will see what Jesus said we are to be doing as believers as we look for His return.
These words are found in Matthew 25, where tells us three stories, or parables.
• The first is the Parable of the 10 Bridesmaids (verses 1-13).
• The second is the Parable of the Talents (verses 14-30).
• And the third is on the Separation of the Sheep and Goats (verses 14-30).
So join us as we tackle the subject “How to Wait for Christ’s Return.”

Service times at Harvest Riverside are 7:30, 9:30, and 11:30 AM, PST.

Service times for Harvest Orange County are 9:30 and 11:30 AM.
It’s all webcast live at www.harvest.org.

The Harvest Crusade

Can you believe it? It’s only 13 days until the Anaheim Harvest Crusade!
If you are anywhere in California, I hope that you are planning on attending.

Louis Zamperini Interview

On Sunday night at our Crusade, we will have our special guest, WW2 hero Louis Zamperini!
This week on our broadcast, A New Beginning, we did a two-part interview with Louis that you must hear. Our producer, Dave Spiker, did an amazing “theatre of the mind” approach to Louis’ story, complete with music, sound effects, and much more.
To hear that, go here:

    Great message Sunday and I especially liked the comment made with regards to the Harvest Crusade being a prepared event for prepared people. Way to “GO”!

    The winds are a blowing and the Spirit is moving.

    I can’t wait until we are all caught up with the Lord to be and see everyone in Gods’ Paradise.

    Looking forward with much enthusiasm until that day!

    Thank you Pastor Greg for all you encouragement to the many.

    God Bless all His people, His children and may we all rejoice in His promises.

    We should always live our lives as being ready for Christ’s return at any moment. Either He will come for us, or we will come to Him after we die. Either way, we’re gonna meet Him, and hopefully not in judgment.

    We shouldn’t be caught off guard like the five foolish bridesmaids. I know I don’t; I look especially foolish in a dress and high heels. ;)

    The gates of hell shall not prevail against His church.

    Thank you for letting God pour His mighty power through you from His throne room as a double edged sword to continue equipping the saints and allowing the power of the Holy Spirit working through you to bring those bound in satan’s clutches to be seated in the heavenlies with Christ Jesus- redeemed by the blood.[For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
    -Col. 1:13,14 (NIV)] All praises to God!!

    Thank you for participating in the Aug. 6th prayer rally. Even now declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing-grain offerings and drink offerings for the Lord your God.

    Blow the trumpet in Zion, declare a holy fast, call a sacred assembly. Gather the people, consecrate the assembly, bring together the elders, gather the children, those nursing at the breast. Let the bridegroom leave his room and the bride her chamber. Let the priests, who minister before the LORD, weep between the temple porch and the altar. Let them say, “Spare your people, O LORD. Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, Where is their God?
    Joel 2:12-17 [NIV]

    blessing and honor glory and power unto the Lord be praise, sing with the chorus resounding before us, holy is his name,his name Yahweh holy is your name….
