Thank you for taking a few minutes to visit our website. We hope you will find it uplifting and informative. At Lighthouse Tabernacle, we are committed to fulfill the Command of Jesus to "make disciples of all nations." We offer a number of ministries designed to do just that, for all the members of your family.
I would like to invite you all to visit our church and worship with us. You can find out our schedule of services by checking the website. In addition, we are committed to praying for your needs, seeking the Lord with you and for you. We believe that nothing changes within ourselves, or the world, unless God is the Change-Agent. Unless He does it, it will not be done. However, we further believe that prayer moves the hand of God on our behalf. Therefore, we'd like to invite you to visit our Prayer Meeting held on Wednesday evenings, followed immediately by our Bible Study. The Prayer Meeting is the "heart" of the church's activities. Therefore, you will be able to gain a good understanding of our church family by joining with us in prayer.
If you prefer to join us for worship on Sunday, you will experience an exciting, and engaging time of joyful music as we lift hands and hearts to worship our Creator and Redeemer, followed by an equipping sermon from the Holy Scriptures.
We hope you enjoy our website and choose to visit us soon.
God bless you.
“Nourishment From Heaven”
“Jesus replied, ‘I am the Bread of Life…” (John 6:35a)
What are we living for?
We work, strive and expend so much time, energy, effort to obtain what we need to survive. But we don’t only want to survive, we want to thrive! We work as if there will come a day when we don’t have to work any longer; we can rest in what we have labored for and stop working. But, deep down inside, we really don’t expect that day to come. After all, these are difficult times; and the reality of present economic circumstances make it almost impossible for us not to expect that we’ll be working forever!
In verse 27 of chapter 6, Jesus tells His disciples, “...not to labor for the bread which perishes…” What does He mean? Doesn’t He know we have to work to survive? Of course He knows we have to work. However, He is saying in this passage that there is something greater we must spend our energy seeking— the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you…(John 6:27 NLT). How do we do that?
The illustration Jesus refers to in this passage is the manna that God gave through Moses to the Israelites in the wilderness. How did Israel survive in the wilderness on manna? They had to gather it. They had to gather it every day, except on the Sabbath. They gathered as much as they needed for their families. Their daily need for bread was met (anything extra turned to worms). So how do we spend our time and energy as it relates to the “Bread of Life”? We must believe in Him. That is, we must earnestly seek Him; follow Him; obey His commands; live by His teachings. This is what will bring us the eternal life that He promises. We accomplish this BY FAITH!
Here is the pattern for us; we must MAKE THE EFFORT (gathering) to seek Him. We must do so DAILY. Every day we must seek Him out and fellowship with Him. We cannot do this for tomorrow’s supply. We cannot live on yesterday’s supply. We must seek Him out as our Daily Bread. We must do so with such priority as if our lives depended on it.
So beloved, as we walk through the “wilderness” of this world—and it is a wilderness—let’s seek the Lord daily with all our hearts, minds and strength. Let’s believe on Him; following His commands, imitating His life and allow His Life to flourish in us by the power of the Holy Spirit. As we do this, we will come to possess that life which He came to give us. We will live like never before and be able to say with the Apostle Paul, “...I live by the faith of the Son of God Who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (Gal. 2:20)
May the Lord bless you and your family continually.
