"Some concerned women decided to decorate the graves of those who had bravely given their lives in that destructive civil conflict between the states." B.

Turn please to Psalm 85, if you would. In just a moment we're going to look at verses four through six. I preached to you in the last message when we were together about the critical situation in our land today. We may be on the brink of a world holocaust. Many of us feel that we are very close to the Rapture of the church and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The…

Introduction: Memorial Day doesn't mean what it once did. For most, Memorial Day is just another Monday holiday. It marks the beginning of summer. It's the weekend of the Indy 500. School's out. The pools open. It provides the first real chance for picnics, BBQ's, and maybe an outing to the lake. It hasn't always been that way. Memorial Day grew out of the human need to remember where we have been. Only then can we figure out where we are…

What a wonderful and glorious day it is to be alive, to be a Christian, to know Jesus. I want you to understand as we read from the following passage of scripture that this is a vision of the future.

Memorial Day is much more than a three-day weekend. Those that are of an older generation appreciate the significance and meaning of Memorial Day. Tragically, many of our younger generation have no appreciation or understanding of Memorial Day. To many it is nothing more than a federal holiday that gives them a long weekend in May. Memorial Day is…

Many years ago, there was a singer in America who was very popular. Her name was Kate Smith. She had a radio program before the days of television. I suppose she was the most beloved singer in all of America. One evening, on her radio program, she introduced America to a brand new song. The words of the song went something like this: "God, bless America, land that…

Last week I was in Philadelphia to speak for Promise Keepers and I flew in early since I had never been there before so I could spend some time sightseeing. I love American history and I went to see Betsy Ross' home, the gravesite of Benjamin Franklin, the Liberty Bell and then for me the grand Finale-Independence Hall-the place where both the Declaration...

The desire for freedom is one of the strongest desires of the human soul. Men over the centuries have given their very lives and fortunes for this desire. It was the desire of Hebrew salves in Egypt! It was the desire of Babylonian Captives. It was the desire of a group of pilgrims that founded our nation! Recorded in the first Document the Mayflower Pact, it was the desire…

It is an honor to stand before you on this special day and offer these words honoring our veterans who are with us, and those fallen heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. The first Memorial Day was not called Memorial Day. It is believed to have been celebrated with a parade of freed slaves and Union soldiers marching through Charleston, South Carolina in…
