  • Especially in God’s temple

  • What have I done to you oh God?

  • Walk across the water

  • Just learn and read it, it is amazing how much complaining they did to Moses, they complained him out of the Promised Land

Sermon Notes
Associate Pastor Jerri Harrison
Anchor Yourself

Everything said is not heard and everything heard is not said
Some of us turn our backs on God
I am mad about it, when he does what we do not understand
The drifting happens physically and spiritually
Being in the church building does not mean that you are connected to God
It does not mean that you love God
Thank God that you are in the church building
There is hope for those of us that show up
Our anchor has not drifted away
Isaiah 29:13
Hope is always here
Have you bee in a boring meeting on your job?
You pretend to be all in
So glad to be here, all the while your mind is gone
It can happen spiritually too
You push to be in the building but your mind is far away
You know in the house of the Lord this is where your strength is
Have you had a friend say something that offended you
Have you ever had anyone to act crazy on you
They had a bad day and took it out on you
Transference is when we transfer our feelings on others
You can see that your friend was having a bad day
Anchor yourself in the things of God
This is what happened to the disciples
John 6:53-54
John 6:60
Many of the disciples said this is a hard saying
Jesus saw that his disciples murmured
Jesus asked does this offend you?
Many went away and walked out on Jesus
Have you ever heard a teaching that pierced and offended you?
The disciples heard in the flesh and thought about cannibalism
Jesus was speaking in the Spirit the deep things of God
John 6:63
The flesh don’t profit nothing
I Corinthians 2:14
The things of God are foolishness to the natural man
They do not understand what a blessing it is to step into God’s house
You must walk in the Spirit
Instead of walking our on God, anchor yourself
Galatians 5:16
Walk in the Spirit, so that you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh
The Spirit says forgive
The Spirit deals differently when you are offended
Which ever way God says to move
Anchor yourself and walk in the Spirit
Instead of drifting away anchor yourself
Walk in the fruit of the Spirit
Instead of walking out and leaving the church
Anchor yourself, choose to make God happy
Staying where you are called to be and making God happy
Instead of walking out of a committee meeting and being mad
Anchor yourself
Think more highly of others ideas than your own
We got saved because we needed Jesus in our lives
I Peter 1:6-7
God is not looking for your gold
He is looking for your faith that makes it through the hard times
Faith that came out purified
Suck it up Soldiers! Such it up Soldiers!
Learn how to walk for God!
Don’t let anything or anyone pull your anchor where you drift away from God!
Stay put, stand tall, hang in!
Loyalty says, stay put!
Anchor yourself with loyalty and commitment
Find a bible verse to stand on and anchor yourself
Anchor yourself in prayer, where you snot and cry
Anchor yourself in doing the work of God
I am a watchman and I will stay on the wall!
Anchor yourself in the work that you are called to do
Romans 8:28
I may not like what I have to do, I am not going anywhere!
I may have hurt feelings, I am not going any where!
Anchor yourself when you are sick!
Anchor yourself when your finances are low!
Anchor yourself when your friends turn away!
Anchor yourself when love ones go to heaven!
Get on your knees and serve God
Anchor yourself when you don’t have a good job
Anchor yourself when your child ain’t acting right!
Fight your fears  and stand on Gods word
God is not leaving us
God is a sure anchor
Anchor yourself with hope
My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness
On Christ the solid rock I stand all other ground is sinking sand
Give God your all
Lord I am anchored in you!








God is Over All
Sermon Notes
October 26, 2019
Bishop Ernest Johnson
Come Out of the House of Potiphar

Potiphar was a servant of Pharoah you are not called to be a servant of a servant!
The devil is lying on you! Wake up and go to your 
You need to come out of your place of comfort
When you get comfortable where you are you get uncomfortable
There are things that God has promised when you were younger
I am stuck, I might as well die here at Grace Covenant
He sent you here with a purpose
This is a move of God for your life and your soul
When you do not see things accomplished in your life it is hard for you
Spending to much affects your soul
Some of the folks you live with can affect your soul
Neighbor I love you but I will not allow you to effect my soul
If we harbor un-forgiveness 
We can’t live a double life!
We can’t play Christians one day and watch pornography on another
You are living epistles
Can’t be one way in the church and another way out of the church
I am around folks that smoke drugs, but don’t smoke, no you have a contact high
Be ye holy! Be holy! Be saved! Don’t play with it
Salvation is like fire!
You can cook a meal with it or burn a house down
Salvation will bless you! I would that you prosper and be in good health!
He will bless you! Everything that you put your hand to!
He’s real! Ain’t nothing like the real thing!
Let this mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus
He won’t force you to study, pray or fast
Humble yourself, go to the bathroom, take a sponge and wipe the pride off
You may have some degrees! God degree requires you to be born again
Nebukknezzer people who hear council and now they have big ministries
I come home and they do not hear my counsel
In the multitude of counselors there is safety
The Millennial churches, God talks to me also!
Like Miriam and Aaron, they said check this out Mo-Mo
I know you opened the Red Sea, you are just Mo
I am too familiar with you and call you Mo-Mo
Since I started with you I did not have anything, now I have more money than you, more educated, when you feel that you can run it better, it is time to go up the street and get your own church
You ever heard of a snake tongue, he attacks you by his tongue
The bite is a sting but you don’t see the poison
If you let him in, you let him win!
God is not the author of confusion or peace
Confusion comes from the enemy!
When Moses was in the mountain the people got tired!
Ain’t nothing changing! I am just going to be here!
The anointing is here! God is tearing down and time to rebuild you
Trees that are bearing fruit are going through hell!
God likes producers!
Come to the house of the Lord with an offering in your hand!
Your Pastor has to shut in to get a Word from the Lord!
If he don’t hurry up and get a word
They will go talk in the Assistant Pastor’s ear, they will say go and build me a golden calf
Instead of building a church, they would rather have a golden calf
You have a golden calf parked outside!
Some of you have moved up and come to church like a spiritual Peacock
Come in late and make an entrance!
The brothers want to be models!
Instead of coming humbly to the church, you have a golden calf in your pocket
Now you can’t be told anything
Why do people make golden calves? Because they do not talk back
Who is the most anointed? You are! Who is the prettiest? You are!
People are dropping dead!
What are we doing about the world around us? We are peacocks!
You are going to get God’s attention one way or another
Either by prayer and fasting or by sin and doing wrong
One accord when you are doing right can turn the neighborhood around
Get down there Moses, they are partying! When you have a golden calf you start questioning your leadership
Why should I respect her? I am a Peacock or GQ
It takes more man to humble yourself
He who looks into the law of liberty, when you get into the word you see your ugly side
When I see Jesus, I don’t have to compare myself with you
To your leader do you stand
Jesus was walking he did not have anything and the whole world listened to him and then hung him on a cross
Father forgive them, for they know not what they do
That is a revelation scripture
Jesus is knocking on the door of your heart
You know how to play church, I want you to be the church
Paul on his way to Damascus, Trump, Winfrey, Perry, there are those who are not saved and made their dreams come true
Do you need him?
You are on your way to accomplishing your goals
The Lord knocked him down
Ask God two questions, who are you?
You forgot to get down and get a break through
I got beside myself and forgot to say I am sorry!
We must walk in repentance, forgive me and help me!
If you are not saved and don’t know Jesus you need to get him
These are the last days! The devil snatching people from the church because we are in the last days
Who are you? I am Jesus who you persecuted.
Every time you went to the beach instead of church
Hebrews 10:25
If you are tired of seeing the old faces, you need to bring in some new faces!
The first ministry is Evangelism! We are to witness to others!
You should be witnessing and filling the church
Who would like to see a new baby being born or a funeral?
When we bring someone new in to the church we get excited
Get your eyes open and get filled with the Holy Ghost
Renew your vision! Read the vision! Go tell the vision to sinners!
Go outside to the beach, the  military bases, go out to save someone
Don’t lose your Fire!
Listen to your leadership!
You can be better than those in the church
Miriam and Aaron come to Mo-Mo and said, check this out!
We got degrees, money, houses, we can run this thing better than you
Go ahead and step down and let us run this thing!
Leprosy struck Miriam, why didn’t it strike Aaron?
Years went by but you don’t get away!
Later on bring Aaron to the tent! Strip him of his robe! That is why leaders get fooled, they get away then all of a sudden they get caught up
You thought that you got away! Here comes Aaron strip him of his robe and leprosy came upon him. Because he was a Priest he died
Be not many masters! You want to be head of something!
Understand the responsibility!
The responsibility is greater on the teacher than the student
What do you want me to do? Man of God I will serve!
How much more do we need for Temple Restoration?
The leader carries the heaviest burden of the church
While you are watching television, the man of God is praying for you and praying!
The leader begins to question their ability!
Be not many master’s the master has the greatest judgment
Grace Covenant you are church with favor and power, you are the light of the world. Follow after peace with all men. If you don’t live holy others will not see God!
People need to see your holiness, show it off!






God is Over All
Sermon Notes
October 20, 2019
Apostle David Watkins
I Can’t Forgive Myself

I don’t have to accept the change
Matthew 27:1-10
Passage talks about Judas remorse
Judas felt remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver
He realized that he had sinned
You must forgive yourself or you will be walking in the steps of Judas
Not forgiving yourself negates the blood of the cross
Hebrews 9:14
Cleanse your conscience from dead works
You are the one having problems forgiving yourself
God’s word says that we have been washed by the blood of Christ
Leviticus 17:11
The life of the flesh is in the blood
It is the blood that makes atonement for the soul
It goes both ways, forgiving yourself and forgiving others
The same thing happens if we do not forgive ourselves and others
We are saying, I don’t care what the blood of Jesus has done
I hate myself because of what I have done
When we refuse to forgive ourselves
God is a peculiar God
When the people went up to search the land
They brought back an evil report
Caleb and Joshua
Denying the gospel will keep you from forgiving
Washed your sins away, no more shame
If we do not forgive ourselves and others we are turned over
But is rebuking the pastor, stay with me I will get to the part you want
Matthew 18:33
You should have had mercy on the fellow slave even as I had mercy on you
There was a time when you went to jail until you could pay your debt
Your family came and paid the debt
The man cried out have mercy on me
Matthew 18:28
A tormentor would hit you with no need
Some people will follow you to see if you are what you say
They saw what he did, if anyone says that you are a tattletale
Don’t worry about someone telling on you if you are alright
God’s angels constantly report on you
You were told on yesterday what you did
You were told on when you were cursing
When you were dropping it like it’s hot
Someone told on you when you were learning to twerk
Matthew 18:31
Matthew 18:34-35
My heavenly Father will do the same to you if you do not forgive
You have been turned over because you have chosen
We end up leaving where we are suppose to be
You are being tormented
Judas sinned, but was his greatest sin stealing from the disciples?
His greatest sin may have been to not believe in Jesus
Because of his unbelief he became the son of perdition
Not forgiving you is to walk in the same steps as Judas
You have sinned and are remorseful
You come to church but still feel remorseful
You made the choice but can’t forgive yourself
The devils voice is like the coins that Judas threw
Putting blinders on your spiritual eyes
It will have you seeing things through the eyes of judgment
You will no longer know the difference between right and wrong
The same will be turned over
They are hung up on the pain and forget the gospel
I have been changed healed, delivered
You must understand that I am being tormented
It hurts so much, where do you think that it is coming from?
I can’t believe that the blood can cover this
The brother or sister is just fine
The other person can find it hard because you have not forgiven them
Both persons are tormented
It will ruin you faith and become spiritually blind
II Peter 1:9
You forget the gospel, that you have been forgiven
Today I have been changed! I have been delivered!
Don’t be blinded by hurt and pain
These little demons are in your heart and mind trying to get you not to forgive yourself
We have the habit of wanting to crucify the wrongdoers, we have not been harmed but we want them to hurt
It is difficult for them to forgive themselves because you do not forgive
Who can judge another mans servants?
Were you there when I created the universe?
Who are you talking to?
God can do whatever he wants to do
He can not be judged by any man
Has anyone been bitten by a mosquito?
He is just looking for what he eats
If we smack him down and squeeze the life right out of them
Did you see what they did to little John?
He was just hungry!
We are like a god to any crawling creature
I am trying not to kill the garden snake
They were here before we built this
God is really God he is over everything
You can’t judge God, he really is God!
Example of a roach, why did you kill my family, there was only one on your sandwich
Forgiveness is a choice, all you have to do is choose
It depends on your knowledge of the gospel
You can not deny it
We have all sinned and fallen short of God’s standard
We can not pay back the debt that was owed
Jesus took our sins off of us and all my guilt and all my shame
I should be able to understand this and forgive myself
By faith his righteousness is given to us
God charged Jesus for our sins
Yes you sinned, but the forgiveness of God is so good he erased it from his memory
I John 1:9
It is easy to forgive yourself and others
We want someone to hurt for hurting
It has been long enough, they have suffered long enough
I thank God that he is not like me
I have been hurt dogged, used and abused, cursed out, etc.
It took me some time to forgive because of the flesh
I was not free from the torment until I have forgiven
I needed help to forgive also
I needed him to come and say, I ask you to forgive me
Now I have forgiven, I want him to call, I want him to come over
I have been changed, freed, delivered!
I have been changed! I thank God for laying on his heart so God can deliver me
When you are beating yourself up over something that God has forgiven you of
Let it go and believe the gospel
I know that you are able to forgive yourself and others
You sin did not destroy God’s ability to love you
Try not to feel so bad about having trouble forgiving yourself
Forgiving yourself requires a little struggle
If it comes easy we are only giving ourselves excuses
We do not get the excuse to do whatever we want
Thank God for his grace and favor
Do not take our trespasses lightly
Be weary of someone who walks around casually talking about forgiving themselves
Others are looking at them
Example: I know that I drove drunk and killed your son
Only two parties have the ability to give you a self forgiving license
The person you hurt or God
We have to claim God’s forgiveness for ourselves
To forgive yourself you must surrender to the gospel
Today is for those who find it difficult to forgive themselves
You are the ones that are unhappy
The torment has been poking you!
You are about to kill yourself because you feel so bad
The gospel is the teaching and revelation of Jesus Christ
All my shamed….
People want to be forgiven, they want salvation, they want this peace
They would rather be saved from the consequences of their sins
I want to be saved from sin but also from the consequences
Lord God don’t let me shame you!
Lord do not let my sin be brought to the fan! Have mercy!
Save me from the consequences of my sin
Beware of those who say I am sorry that I beat your brother up
I forgive myself
To forgive yourself you must surrender to the gospel
Work on forgiving yourself, you can do it, you are able
Just believe what you already know to be true
Jesus is the answer!
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me
You are capable of forgiving yourself

Divine Loyalty As It Relates to Human Loyalty

 
  • Luke 17:29

  • We are living in good days

  • We are eating, driving cars, buying homes, we have technology

  • We can text people, we can block people

  • Marriage, separation, and divorcing

  • We are living in the last days, having a great big party

  • Doing whatever we want to do

  • We are living in those last days

  • Only our children were being pressured

  • Today we are getting this worldly pressure

  • Let’s not talk about the things that offend God

  • Let’s talk only about the goodness

  • Ezekiel 3:18

  • Someone will have to pay for not telling people that they are off

  • When you go to the doctor, you want to hear the truth

  • You don’t want to hear about how good things are in your life

  • If you warn the wicked and he does not turn from his wicked ways

  • You would deliver your soul

  • Your soul needs deliverance

  • We are being vexed like Lot

  • We accept that times are changing and we need to change with the times

  • Things that do not cause ripples and do not hurt feelings

  • God will blow that feeling right away

  • I will shoot a feeling

  • Some preachers may say, you should be more loyal to God than to your church

  • Tired of losing the saints, say the things that make it easy

  • God does not separate himself from his work

  • Y’all ain’t listening! Pastor Peyton

  • Please understand God is not separating himself from his work

  • We ought to be loyal to God but not to Jesus

  • If I say to the wicked repent, and you do not tell them they will die

  • Their blood will be on your hands

  • You never mentioned him to me (a song that he sang with his Mom)

  • You do not want to hurt any feelings

  • You will suffer some loss

  • Ezekiel 3:18

  • You do not need to be loyal to your church or ministry, they have separated God from his work

  • Maybe that church is not God’s church or work

  • I am the ministry and the ministry is me!

  • I am what God has called me to be and that is me

  • I am my calling and my calling is me!!!

  • It makes you want to stand up against the enemy!

Sermon Notes
Apostle David Watkins
I’m Loyal to God 

 

  • To be loyal to God is the question 

  • To be loyal to the inspired word of God which is Logos 

  • Every Word of God is inspired by His Word 

  • Jesus is the living Logos 

  • I do not need the Logos to keep me believing in Jesus 

  • I do not need the logos to complete the vision 

  • I need the Logos to guide me and to lead me in how to serve him 

  • To help me with what to share with the people and what not to share 

  • Causing me not to become discouraged 

  • To be loyal to His inspired word is to be loyal 

  • You can not be loyal to God and not loyal to the man of God 

  • Without loyalty the work cannot be done 

  • I need you, but not disloyalty 

  • I do not need those who are not willing to go 

  • I do not need those who are set with the baton to go in a different direction 

  • We shall not follow any man but follow Jesus 

  • It is contrary to the logos of God 

  • Paul said, follow me as I follow Jesus 

  • I Corinthians 4:16 

  • Why did Paul want people to follow him? 

  • To complete what he was to do for God 

  • There are pastors who messed it up because they are glory seekers 

  • They are honored when people say I will follow you 

  • There is only one reason that I want people to follow me 

  • Giants of deception, disease, despair 

  • We can over come because we are well able 

  • Some might say, we are not able 

  • Three times Paul mentioned about following Jesus 

  • I Corinthians 11:2-3 

  • Some feel that I am loyal to God 

  • Moses did not say follow me, but he expected it 

  • What is now has been, we are living in the last days and this is what will happen 

  • People are coming up with their own ways of serving God 

  • Remember, repent and do the first works 

  • Not doing what you think that you hear 

  • You have a Father in the gospel that has only good thoughts toward you 

  • Philippians 3:17 

  • God has set leaders 

  • Called, gifted, anointed and hard headed 

  • You can’t brag about something that has been given to you 

  • Some of us have issues with our mates, but we are working it out being faithful 

  • You will receive a reward for the fight 

  • You will not get a reward for the gift 

  • The gift of interpreting tongues, I did that, I would et called and it would be interpreted 

  • Will God reward you for what God has given you? 

  • Go to the fighting pride line 

  • Go to the line where you found it difficult to follow 

  • When Paul was talking about man and headship, he was talking about a natural thing 

  • The reason Paul told the saints to follow him was because he was their spiritual Father 

  • I Corinthians 11:1
