Year ‘2023’

Power & Life In The Power of The Tongue

Sunday January 1, 2023

Sermon: Pastor Syd taught on the importance of declaring things, asking God what is to come, and telling Him what you need to be done. It is necessary to speak His promises in faith and ask in submission, not pride. Pastor Syd and the congregation made powerful Biblical declarations. I carry the power of life and death in my tongue, and I love it  Here are your confessions:

My tongue is set-apart to bless, and for
God’s life-giving purposes.
(Proverbs 18:21, James 3:10)

Jesus Christ is my Lord, and I believe in
my heart, that God has raised Him up
from the dead, and that He now lives, as
my High Priest, to make intercession for
me. Therefore, I approach the throne of
grace with boldness, and I receive
mercy, and find grace to help me,
anytime I need it. (Romans 10:9, Hebrews 7:25, 4:14-16)

I am a part of the body of Christ.
Satan has no power over me.
I overcome evil with good.
(1 Corinthians 12:27; Romans 12:21)

I am of God, and overcome the evil one
because, greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.
(1 John 4:4)

I will fear no evil for You Lord are with
me, your Word, and your Spirit, they comfort me.
(Psalms 23:4)

I am far from oppression, and fear does
not come near me because I am
established in righteousness.

(Isaiah 54:14)

No weapon formed against me will
succeed, for my righteousness is of the
Lord. Whatever I do will prosper
because, I’m like a tree that’s planted by
the rivers of living water.
(Isaiah 54:17; Psalms 1:3)

I am delivered from this present evil age
according to the will of my God and Father.
(Galatians 1:4)

No evil will overtake me, nor will any
plague come near my home. The Lord
has commanded His angels to protect
me in all my ways, and in my pathway is
life, and there is no death.
(Psalms 91:10-11; Proverbs 12:28)

Jesus Christ has given me the authority
to trample on demonic spirits and their
dominions; nothing can ever harm me, in any way.
(Luke 10:19)

and understanding of God. His wisdom
gives me long life, riches, and honor. My
ways are pleasant and my paths are
peaceful, and I am blessed in my deeds. (Proverbs 3:13-18)

I hear and obey the Word of God, and I
am happy in whatever I do, because I am
a doer of the Word of God. (James 1:22)

My faith is a shield all around me, and
with it I cancel every flaming arrow of
evil, that comes against me. (Ephesians 6:16)

Christ has redeemed me from the curse
of the law. Therefore, I forbid any
sickness or disease to come on my body.
Every disease germ, and every virus,
that touches my body, dies instantly in
the name of Jesus. Every cell and every
organ in my body, operates perfectly the
way God created it to operate, and I
forbid any malfunction in my body, in
the name of Jesus Christ.
(Galatians 3:13; Romans 8:11;
Genesis 1:31; Matthew 16:19)

I am in Christ Jesus, and His Law of the
Spirit of life, has completely set me free
and exempted me from the law of sin
and death, this includes condemnation,
fear, sickness, and poverty.
The Law of Life works mightily in me. (Romans 8:2)

I am an overcomer, and I overcome the
evil one by the blood of the Lamb, and
the word of my testimony. I do not fear
death because death has no place in me. (Revelation 12:11)

I am submitted to God, and the devil
flees from me. I resist him in the identity of Jesus Christ. (James 4:7)

The Word of God is forever settled in
heaven and He watches over His Word
to accomplish it. Therefore, His Word is
in my mouth, and in my heart, and I
proclaim His Word upon this earth.
(Psalms 119:89, Jeremiah 1:12, Rom. 10:8)

My children are taught of the Lord, and
they are blessed with peaceful prosperity. (Isaiah 54:13)

I present my body to God as a living
sacrifice, my body is the temple of the
Holy Spirit, who lives in me. I am not
my own, I was purchased with the life
and blood of Jesus, therefore, in His
identity, I refuse to overeat or become
addicted to anything. Body, you will
obey me in the name of Jesus, and
conform to the Word of God. I consider
the desires of my flesh to be dead, and I
present my body as set-apart, holy, and
pleasing, to the Lord. I have been raised
with Christ and I stay hidden in Him,
and my mind is set on things above.
(Romans 12:1; 1 Corinthians 6:19, Colossians 3:1-5)

Christ has redeemed me from the curse
of the law. Christ has redeemed me from
poverty, Christ has redeemed me from
sickness, Christ has redeemed me from
calamity, Christ has redeemed me from spiritual death. (Galatians 3:13; Deuteronomy 28)


In the place of poverty, He has given me
wealth, for sickness, He has given me
health, for death, He has given me eternal life. (2 Corinthians 8:9; Isaiah 53:5-6; John 10:10; John 5:24)

I am revived according to the Word of God, and I am strong.
(Psalms 119:25, Joel 3:10)

God forgives all my sins, He heals all my
diseases, He redeems my life from the
pit, He crowns me with faithful love and
compassion, He satisfies me with
goodness, and renews me to
youthfulness. (Psalms 103:3-5)

Jesus Christ bore my sickness, and
carried my pains, He paid the debt of my
sin, and by His wounds, I was healed. I
am the healed of the Lord.
(Isaiah 53:4-5, 1 Peter 2:24,
Exodus 15:26)

I delight in the Lord, and He gives me
the desires of my heart. I am convinced,
that I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
(Psalms 37:4, Psalms 27:13)

I am a giver, and as I give, it is also given
to me in good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and over-flowing, it is poured into my lap. (Luke 6:38)

With the measure I use, it is measured
back to me. I sow generously, therefore,
I reap generously. I give cheerfully,
which My God loves, and He makes ALL
grace overflow toward me, so that in
ALL things, at ALL times, having ALL
that I need—I do overflow, in ALL good works. (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)

The Lord is my good Shepherd, and I do
not lack. He supplies all of my needs,
according to His unending riches in glory. (Psalms 23:1, Philippians 4:19, John 10:11)

Jesus was made poor, so that through
His poverty, I might be made rich. Jesus
was made sin, so that I could be made
righteous in Him. He came so I could
have life and have it more abundantly.
(2 Corinthians 8:9, 5:21, John 10:10)

because I am His child, and Abraham’s blessings are mine. (Psalms 35:27; Galatians 3:14)

teaches me all things; He guides me into
all Truth. I confess that I have perfect
knowledge regarding any situation that I
encounter, and I have the wisdom of
God on the inside of me.
(John 16:13; James 1:5)

I trust in the Lord with all my heart, and
I do not rely on my own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5)

In all my ways I know the Lord, and He
makes my paths straight.
(Proverbs 3:6)

The LORD will accomplish His purposes in and through me. (Psalms 138:8)

I let the Word of Christ live in me richly,
which makes all wisdom available to me. (Colossians 3:16)

I follow the Good Shepherd because I
know His voice, and I do not listen to, or
follow, the voice of a stranger.
(John 10:4-5)

Jesus was made for me, wisdom,
righteousness, sanctification, and
redemption. I have the wisdom of God,
and I am, the righteousness of God, in Christ Jesus. (1 Corinthians 1:30; 2 Corinthians 5:21)

I am filled with the knowledge of the
Lord’s will, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. (Colossians 1:9)

I am a new creation in Christ, I am
God’s workmanship, created in Christ
Jesus. I have the mind of Christ, and the
wisdom of God is working mightily in me. (2 Cor. 5:17; Eph. 2:10; 1 Cor. 2:16)

I have been crucified with Christ, and
have put to death the old nature, and by faith I have put on God’s nature, which is Christ in me. I am renewed in knowledge, according to the likeness of Him, who created me. (Galatians 2:20, Colossians 3:9-10)

I receive the Spirit of wisdom, and
revelation. The eyes of my mind are
enlightened, and I do not conform to
this world, instead, I am continually
transformed, by the renewing of my
mind. My mind is renewed by the Word of God. (Ephesians 1:17-18; Romans 12:2)

darkness, and I’ve been transferred, into
the kingdom of the Son, of His Love. (Colossians 1:13)

mind, in Christ Jesus. And I deliberately
think on whatever things are true,
honorable, right, pure, lovely, and of a good report. (Philippians 4:7-8)

God lives in me now, so who can stand

required, for life, and godliness.
(2 Corinthians 6:16; John 10:10; 2
Peter 1:3-4; Romans 8:31)

Jesus has given me, the keys to the
Kingdom of Heaven, and the authority
to use His name. Anything I bind on
earth, is bound from heaven, and
anything I loose on earth, is loosed from
heaven. Therefore, in the name of the
Lord Jesus Christ, I bind the rulers, the
authorities, the world-rulers of the
darkness of this age, and the spiritual
forces of evil in heavenly places. They
are now harmless, and have no affect against me. (Matthew 16:19; John 16:23-24; Ephesians 6:12)

I am filled with Him, who is the head
over every ruler and authority. I am His
workmanship, created new in Christ
Jesus, for the good works, which God
prepared for me to do.
(Colossians 2:10; Ephesians 2:10)


I am a believer, and these signs do accompany me:
In the name of Jesus, I cast out demons,

No devil can harm me, I lay hands on the sick,
and they do recover. (Mark 16:17-18)

Troy Pfoutz and Katie Everhart shared about the Ghana Initiative. Apostle
Dale Armstrong administered Holy Communion.

The Power of Speaking Out Loud

Saturday January 7, 2023
Apostle Dale Armstrong preached on the importance of speaking
the Word and increasing your confession, aloud boldly. It is your releasing
faith. Faith is when you cannot be made to doubt. There is the confession
unto faith and the confession of faith. It is important to find out where your
faith level is. Your heart is where your faith is. Abiding in Him comes before
the speaking. Scriptures: Mark 11:23-24; John 11:1, 4, 7-14; Genesis 27; 2
Kings 4:18; Psalm 91; Philippians 4:6-7. Other parts of the service:
Jen taught on the law of wisdom for prosperity. There was LTS graduation.
Pastor Syd shared about the church plant in Richmond.

Fight With Your Mouth

Saturday January 14, 2023

Sermon: Karen Sallee shared a testimony of declaring faith. Personalize
Scripture. Your mouth is a tool. Your salvation is determined by your mouth.
What you say about yourself will work for or against you, because your
words are containers of life or death, or they are useless. Confession is
made of faith, unto faith, or wishfulness. Pastor Syd shared how he
supernaturally heard Apostle Dale Armstrong on the radio. We spoke out the
declarations of faith. Scriptures: (Job 22:28); Proverbs 6:2; 18:7, 21;
Romans 10:4-10, 13; 1 John 4:15; Matthew 16:17-19; Malachi 3:16; Psalm

Fountain Of Life

Saturday January 21, 2023

Your Mouth As a Fountain of Life

Sermon Text: Job 22:28. Words are seeds. Believe your words,
sow the Word of God, allow time and patience without giving up, and your
seeds will bear fruit. Speak and believe what God says. Use your mouth as a
fountain of life. Watch what you say about yourself. Don't allow others to
have authority over you in their negative speech. Speak the Word over your
life. Scriptures: Proverbs 16:23; 10:11, 20, 21, 31; 20:5; Psalm
36:9;19:162; John 7:38; John 6:63; 1 Samuel 30:1-20; Mark 5:21-43.
There was a baby dedication and offering message about being generous to
the poor.

Justified or Condemned

Saturday January 28, 2023

There are three types of confessions: idle, useless words; death confessions; life and faith confessions. There are people who talk too much and those who do not talk enough to share God’s Word. Be quick to listen and slow to share an opinion. Rule your tongue. Your tongue is the difference between being saved and not being saved. Pastor Syd voiced an urgency to minister to anyone contemplating suicide. Proverbs 18:21; 10:11, 19; 12:13-14, 18, 25; 13: 14:25; 15:4; 16:21, 23-24; Matthew 12:33-37; 15:10.

Spiritual Preception

Saturday February 4, 2023

Spiritual perception can be developed and needs to be, especially in these
latter days. Believers must be aware that there are deceiving spirits and
doctrines of devils that sow bad seed in the church. Our doctrine is to do
God's will according to His Word. Be consecrated to do it. You must be born
again. Scriptures: 1 Timothy 4:1-3; John 7:16; Galatians 3:1; 1 John 2:18-
27; 2 Corinthians 3:12-14; Philippians 3:7-11; 2 John 7-11.

Talk Like God

Saturday February 11, 2023

Pastor Syd shared prayer requests and a video and pictures of the earthquake devastation from our missionary in Antioch, Turkey. Sermon: We are to be imitators of God in our words. God's Word is His bond. He has faith in His Word. His Word is truth, is alive, and is forever. He holds His Word in highest regard. He talked about angels heeding the Word we speak. Scriptures: Ephesians 5:1; Proverbs 18:21; James 3; Joshua 21:45; Jeremiah 1:12; Psalm 103:20; Ecclesiastes 5:2-6; Hebrews 4:12 John 1:1, 14; John 17:17.

Using The Name of Jesus

Saturday February 18, 2023

How do we win a spiritual fight? We fight the good fight of faith the same way we receive salvation: believe, say (confess), and act. Jesus won the victory, and we enforce what He won. There is a time to “say” in the authority in the Name of Jesus and a time to “pray” asking in the Name of Jesus. Scriptures: 1 Tim. 6:1-13; 2 Cor. 4:13-18; Rev. 12:11; Ps. 8; Matt. 21:16; James 4:7; Heb. 2:6-9; Heb. 1:3-4; Phil. 2:7-10; Mark 11:23; John 16:23; John 14:12-14; Acts 3:1-13; Acts 9:32-35; Ps. 149:1-9.

Stephen & Donna – Hearing God’s Voice

Saturday February 25, 2023

Stephen and Donna Mirabella share their testimonies of working with the people of Tanzania. Donna taught on Scriptures about prophecy being fulfilled, when Jesus noticed someone, and hearing and obeying. We are the bride of Christ. There was a time of ministry to the Lord and repentance.


Saturday March 4, 2023

John 14:16; John 16:13; 1 John 2:26-27; Luke 24:44. Everything written about Jesus in the law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms must be fulfilled. Pastor Syd read and expounded on Psalms 1 to 27.

Bible Star Wars

Saturday March 11, 2023

Text: Revelation 12:1-8. Pastor Jonathan defines salvation by telling what it is and what it is not. It is sharing God’s divine revelation and His great promises so that we are partakers of His divine nature as sons of God. Luke 20:35-36; Psalm 82:1-6; John 19:7; John 10:33-37. We are adopted sons of God and are positioned in divine counsel. The devil wants you entertained and distracted. Look up! Genesis 15:5. There are heavenly beings managing the universe. Michael and his angels prevail, and God has prepared a place for you. You are presently seated with Him. The gospel is an announcement by a herald proclaiming military victory, a warning of war. Recognize God’s lordship and stand for truth. Mark 1:1. Brides fight!

Thought Life

Saturday March 25, 2023

Scripture text: Luke 6:45. Your thoughts can become speech, which can become an action, which can become a habit, which develops into your character. Using various examples, Josh tells about people whose thoughts produced strongholds, and using lots of Scripture, he explains how to be aware of your thoughts and live in victory.

Be Aggressive With Your Sword

Saturday April 1, 2023

Tithing Message: Proverbs 1:2-6; 3:9. How do I secure my financial future? I honor the Lord and remember how I was touched by the Lord. Release your worship, faith, and thankfulness. This is wisdom, not law. Sermon Message: The devil tries to wear you out. Stand! Be aggressive with your mouth, speaking the Word. (James 3:3-6) Your tongue is a bridle and a rudder. Pursue maturity. Find out why a person talks the way they do. Pull the bridle and grab the rudder. The closer you get to your destination, the stronger you need to hold onto the rudder. Genesis 27:27-37; Mark 11:22-24; Ephesians 6:10-13; Psalm 39:2-3. Pastor Kurt and Pastor Syd both told of powerful personal testimonies. The gates of hell cannot prevail against us.

His Life Is The Light Of Men

Saturday April 8, 2023

Jesus is the light of the world, and we are to have the light of the resurrection life in us. Because of his resurrection, He paid our debt of sin and gave us His righteousness. The law of the spirit of life has set us free from the law of sin and death. How is the life of God making a difference in you? All disciples are believers, but not all believers are disciples. John 1:1-5; 5:24; 6:73; 8:12-59; 11:25-26; Romans 4:25; 8:2-11; 6:3-5; 2 Cor. 5:17; 1 Peter 1:3-4; 1 John 5:11-12; 4:17-18.

Somebodies Going To Make It and Its Going To Be Me

Sunday April 16, 2023

We can live long by having an attitude of victory because of God’s promises. Be positive. Talk positive faith. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Refuse to be negative. Somebody’s going to make it, and it’s going to be me. Somebody’s going to be healed, and it’s going to be me… Live from a spirit of victory and make your greatest miracles your foundation for something better. Scriptures: Matthew 14:23-31; 1 Corinthians 15:57; 2 Corinthians 2:14; Philippians 4:13; Hebrews 11:6; Mark 11:21-24.

God Is Able

Saturday April 22, 2023

Pastor Syd posed various questions about the importance of knowing the Scriptures. God keeps His Word. There are many examples of people who believed and acted on God’s Word. GOD IS ABLE! Believe His Word. Grace will overflow to you. Rom. 10:17; John 15:7; John 1:1-4; John 1:3, 10; Col. 1:15-16; Heb. 1:3, 10; Rom. 16:25; Acts 20:32; Jer. 32:27; Matt. 19:26; Eph.3:20-21; Rom. 14:4; Heb. 2:18; 1 Cor. 10:13; 2 Tim. 1:12; Jude 24-25; Heb. 7:25; 2 Cor. 9:6-11.

Getting God’s Glory Back Into The House

Saturday April 29, 2023

Larry Mills, a missionary shared about an earthquake and God’s protection on his family and all the members of his church. He shared their vision for ministry expansion. He taught on “Getting God’s Glory and Presence Back in His House (Temple).” We are His temple. The main thing is our personal heart of love for Him. We are to influence the world for His glory. Shake the enemy. Be strong. May the harvest be drawn to us. May there be a great increase of miracles, signs, and wonders, and may our ability to hear God increase. Scriptures: 1 Peter 2:5; Heb. 3:6; 1 Cor. 3:16-17; 1 Cor. 6:19;; 2 Cor. 6:19; James 4:4; Eze. 47:1-9; Gen. 2:10; John 7:38; Eze. 8:6; 2 Chron. 5:13-14; Rom. 8:19; Is. 60:1-4. Troy Pfoutz gave a word.

Bring Them To Jesus

Saturday May 6, 2023

Pastor Syd led us in Communion. People brought others to Jesus, such as Andrew and Philip (John 1:40), the paralytic’s friends (Mark 2:1-12), the children (Mark 10:13-14), Simon Peter’s mother-in-law (Luke 4:38), others (Luke 4:40-41, Matthew 4:23-24), a mute man (Matthew 9:32), and the woman caught in adultery (John 8:2-11). Other Scriptures: Luke 9:1-2; Matthew 5:13-16; Colossians 1:25. Be bold to present Jesus to others, stepping out in faith to be the hands, feet, salt, and light of Jesus.

Desire The Gifts

Saturday May 13, 2023

Earnestly desire the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These gifts are spiritual and are
given as God wills, but they will not happen unless a believer earnestly
desires them. Love is the better way to enter into the gifts. These gifts have
not passed away. Can I imagine myself operating in the gifts of the Spirit?
There were words of encouragement given by members of the congregation.
Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 12, 13, and 14:1, 39.

Differing Gifts and Ministries

Saturday May 20, 2023

Text: 1 Corinthians 12. Pastor Syd reviewed and expounded on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Are you desiring to move in the gifts? Are you imagining and meditating on the gifts? Pastor Syd delineated the gifts, the ministries, and the operations (activities, workings) of the gifts of the Spirit. He explained about submitting to good government (Romans 13:1-4). There are also the five-fold ministry gifts. All gifts of the Spirit are given as the Holy Spirit wills, and they are for God’s glory (1 Peter 4:10-11). All parts of the body are needed.

It’s Included In The Ticket

Saturday May 27, 2023

Apostle Dale expounded on Ephesians 3:1-3, 13-14. We have already been blessed with all spiritual blessings. We need to know what belongs to us, such as salvation and healing. We are saved. We are healed already. We are already dead to self. We are sealed by the Holy Spirit: credibility, authority, and ownership.

Women’s Glory Proceeded By Real Life Story

Saturday June 3, 2023

Missionary Andrew Taylor ministered on the women of faith in the Bible: Sarah, Hagar, Rahab, Hannah, Ruth, Esther, Elizabeth, and Mary. Their message was one of: God can use anyone at any time to do any thing; it’s not over until God say it is; God can turn a nobody into a somebody; you can carry greatness; and let it be according to Your Word. Andrew told the testimony of his own mother’s faith when there was no food in the house, and how they received favor to have free tuition for her children to a superior school in India. She told Bible stories to her nine children, and the one of the crucifixion totally impacted Andrew. She prophesied over Andrew that he would bring his siblings to Jesus Christ.

Word Of Wisdom and Word of Knowledge

Saturday June 10, 2023

Pastor Syd taught on the gifts of the Spirit, the revelation, the power, and the speaking gifts.

3 Power Gifts

Saturday June 24, 2023

Pastor Syd taught on the gifts of healings found in 1 Corinthians 12. Sometimes God heals through a believer with the gift of healing (Acts 28:1-10), and sometimes through the person’s faith to be healed (Acts 14:8-10).

Growing and Bearing Fruit For The Master

Saturday September 23, 2023

God expects us to produce fruit as His disciples. The fruit that remains is done out of faith, love for God, and impacts others. The worries of life, deceitfulness of riches, and the desire for other things block our productivity. We will have joy if we are fruitful, and if we keep His love commandments.
