Who Called You?
Many of us know who called you
Where did he call you to serve?

Those who do not know how to do the work
Not too many that we think
I don’t know if I can do what  you do
Who called Moses?
God called Moses to free the people and get them to the promised land
He called him in Egypt
He could have called Moses to free others
If God called you to Grace Covenant Christian Church then you should be at Grace Covenant Christian Church
God called you to this church, where you may minister to a few

The Lord has anointed you!

How do I do this thing?
Preach the Word first!
Heal the sick by praying for one another
Matthew 10:8
God has given you power to heal the sick
Get this death off of me
Return to your first love
Why do you believe that God is not able
You use to put things in Gods hands
We start thinking about the future
People keep disappearing
Am I too old to preach?

I am suppose to retire from pulling the weeds and cleaning the church
Cast out devils
You can’t help what comes to your mind, you can cast it out
When someone slaps you and you are about to slap them back
The flesh can get you an answer right away
God is not about revenge
Matthew 10:8
Stay away from confrontation, don’t hang with the ungodly
Your unsaved friends, your boyfriends that don’t believe
Some people will begin to fight!
Someone got slapped on the behind, the woman jumped and said, Satan you’re a liar!
The man passed out
Cast out devils, you have the power to cast out the devil
Have we been distracted by the things in our lives?
We have forgotten who called us
What did he call us to do?
Romans 8:28
We know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are called according to his purpose
The Spirit of the Lord will come upon some one to apologize to someone
Example of Wonder Woman of being on the car

I don’t need people to make me feel alright
Being God centered
You must be called according to his purpose

Sermon Notes
Apostle David Watkins

The Baptism of the Holy Ghost

All four gospels say that Jesus will baptize with the Holy Ghost
John 1:33
Mark 1:8
Luke 3:16
There are many different baptisms
Genesis 1:1
Genesis 1:3
God took the face of the waters and baptized it
God took his Holy Spirit and baptized darkness into light
God used water
God moved upon the face of the waters
Baptism of repentance
Mark 1:4
John baptized in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance
Jesus was use to grief
Mark 10:38
Baptism of belief submerged in your faith
Completely and totally submerged in your faith
You are committed, loyal and all in it
The Baptism of the Holy Ghost
Acts 19:6
Have you received the Holy Ghost since you believed?
We have not heard whether there be a Holy Ghost
Acts 19:2
The Holy Ghost has taken over
I speak in an unknown tongue
It is a good Holy Ghost that has been haunting me
The Holy Ghost is in me and with me
Acts 19:3
Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism
Acts 19:4
Acts 19:6
When we are sad, we are told to put on the garment of praise
The garment of praising the Lord Jesus
The Lord will give you peace
He will open doors that no man can shut
He will shut doors that no man can open
Man would give them the Spirit of peace

We can try to work on them
God has given us that power
If you want true peace and life you need the Lord
Why is the baptism of the Holy Spirit important?
Because we are living in war
God would not make armor for peace
He made armor for war
Ephesians 6:13-18
One of the pieces of the armor is praying always in the Spirit
We neglect this piece of armor
I Corinthians 14:18
I thank my God, that I pray more than you all
Put on the whole armor and forget about the war
Do not depart until!
Luke 24:49
Acts 1:4
Acts 1:6-7
It is not for you to know the times or the seasons
I expect you to be lead of the Spirit
It is not for you to know….
The Father has put in his power.
Acts 1:8
You are to be witnesses
John 20:21
He breathed on them and said, Receive ye the Holy Ghost
They were not soaked!
You ever came out of the water you just have to breathe?
You need to be soaked and submerged into power
Now I see
You won’t go to hell without it
You need the whole armor
There are times you put your armor down
You will learn to put your shield up!
Have faith and don’t be weary because you have to keep your faith up
Some do not want to come to church because they have to hold their shield up
I have a promise, if you allow yourself to be submerged I will give you power to witness
Power when your friends  turn their back on you
Power when they kick you out of the house!
Power if you are soaked in the Spirit
Jesus said unto them, peace be unto you
He breathed unto them the breathe of life
John 20:22
Born again! Some that have been born again need to be born again!

Can you be baptized more than once?
Can you swim more than once? Yes, you can be soaked more than once
Irie Beach, Jamaica; Megan’s Bey, Jamaica, etc.
Soaked in the Holy Spirit
When I was young my Mother would take us out to get soaked
Take me to the water, take me to the water…..
You need it after your salvation!
The Baptism of the Holy Ghost is also the Promise
Acts 2:38
Repent and be baptized!
Acts 2:39
The promise is unto you and your children
Even as many as the Lord our God shall call
Jesus said he would baptize us with fire!
I was called and asked to be soaked in the Holy Spirit
Acts 2:6
Prayed in your prayer language, you are thinking about something
God is saying you need some peace, your house is gone
These things can not be compared to the house that I will get in Heaven
I don’t need a house if there will be on televisions
I would not need these things! What is a house to God?
Sounds like work!
John 14:2
Come up a little higher! Can I just walk around Heaven all day?
You are going to have to work!
Matthew 25:21
Angels worship the Lord God all day without ceasing!
We will never get tired of praise
There is a wow effect every time they get ready to do something
No wonder they say Holy, God is always showing them something new!
Speaking in tongues is a language
It sounds like babbling, it is an actual language
This language that we speak none of us understand
I Corinthians 14:2
No man understands our holy language
I Corinthians 14:4
I Corinthians 14:14
If I pray in an unknown tongue my understanding is unfruitful
I Corinthians 14:15
We just pray in the Spirit, we can also sing in the Spirit
I can talk to God in the Spirit!
I come out of the spirit and talk to God in understanding
If you pray in the Spirit, Satan does not know what you are praying about
You can pray in the Spirit and pray that it is what you want and need

Most of us only pray with our understanding
Paul, I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you
I will pray in the Spirit
We can’t just walk in the grocery store and speak in tongues
You are speaking in a way where there is no understanding
It sounds like syllables it is a language that you don’t understand
In your secret closet, or when it is called for in service
We are going to pray in our prayer language
TBN pray in your prayer language!
Started praying in our prayer language!
I am going to trust in the Lord
When you lose your job when trying to please God!
I am going to trust in the Lord!
Keep the faith!
Romans 8:26
The Spirit helps our weakness!
The Spirit intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words
We are going to pray for people!
I am going to pray with people!
I will encourage then to keep going!
I will not make anything up!
This is real and it is yours for the asking
It is based on our faith!
Someone received on the way home! God is the one over all!
You have to seek him with all of your heart and have faith in him
It is a pure language! A language taken away from man
The language was given to Adam and Eve
The whole earth was of one language!
Genesis 11:6-8
It is interesting how the bible covers everything
He scattered people with all languages
Some languages has been lost today
Zephaniah 3:9
Pure language for all people
We speak in tongues and call upon the Lord
Some myths: you will speak fluently in the beginning
You can’t control your tongues, you have complete control
You will speak like others, your tongues will be different
You speak in public places
The Holy Ghost is for all of us
Acts 2:39
The promise is unto you, and your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call.
Go and tell someone!

Sermon Notes
Pastor Peyton Harrison
Good News For Unfinished People With Unfinished Business

All I wanted was a surrendered walk with God
Santa can’t give me what I want
I Thessalonians 5:23-24
Most do not feel that close to God
It is a process, continuous sanctification
Honesty has us admit that we have a long ways to go
Lord, I have gone as far as I can, unless you help them they will not turn out right
2019 is gone, we have a fresh start in 2020
I made my New Year’s list and the carry over list
I got discouraged with so many unanswered prayers
Wow! How long?
God’s response is keep the faith and keep working on yourself
God intends to make certain that you turn out good in the end
Parents give their life’s blood
Example of Dad kneeling by the bed and he began to pray
I give him to you for the rest of his journey
That broke me in my spirit
God still intends for us to turn out alright
God will keep us until the end, we will turn out the way God wants
The sanctification is a divine decree that nothing will be wasted
God’s commitment to us
We worship and praise
You need to break up some things so that God can give you some things to empower you
Full fire worship, is when you are past tired and being weary
You lift your hands and give it what you have got
We come to bible study and answer for the frustration
Sanctification is a cleansing of spirit, heart and mind
Removes the dust of the world
Remind us that there is only one way to God through Jesus Christ
Old ways got through Budda, Zen, etc.
Transcendental meditation, there is no other way
John 14:6
I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly
It is simple
John 10:10
Person, purpose, prospect,  and promise
Only God, the true and living God
Our sanctification is only as good as the person who stands by it
A car is only good as it’s service department
The name behind the provision and the ride
Paul uses the Greek construction
Only God can make you better
Exercise improves your body…only God can make you better
Our battle against sin we try to get better by ourselves
We get to a low point, where you get sick of being sick
After the Robittuson, Sudafed, water, get to a point of laying in the bed, etc
You say Lord, how long?
Lord, is this all? God says just hold on
How long? Not long!
Only God can make you better
Sanctify you through and through
Whole and plus in the end
I Thessalonians 5:23
God has said that all his children will be whole in the end
Takes time to get up in the morning, body says what are you trying to do?
One foot out and one foot in, the entire body must vote!
Will the body rise or not?
Then you take the first step!
God will finish us!
I love HGTV, renovation shows
They follow the same plan, find a property and renovate it
Things never go well
Trouble hits them
Different problems, roof need repairs, cracked foundation, etc.
Trouble before the commercial break
Once the crisis has past there is a renovation
It always takes longer, costs more money, takes longer than 30 minutes
Houses are hard! Try renovating a human being
Only God can do it
The job still ain’t done!
We are holy in spots
When God is finished we will be whole through ad through
God does not want spot holiness, he wants whole holiness
Nothing will be left out!
If you could change anything about yourself what would it be?
Thinner, shorter, eyes, hair color, change your teeth, etc.
If you could wave a magic wand, would it be a touch up or complete make over?
People change slowly, if they change at all
What would you change on the inside?
The spirit of discontentment?
Depression, overbearing tongue?
Good news, we are all going to change
Keep the faith!
We want to be blameless in the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
God intends that we will be covered by the blood of Jesus!
Through Jesus blood I have it all!
God always has an advocate
The judge can say, not guilty!
God’s judgment is so different
We are free from every fault!
The blood of Jesus gives you spotless integrity
Better things are coming in 2020
Hold on to the promise!
I have been waiting for the blessings banquet!
I Thessalonians 5:24
The one who calls you is faithful, he will do it!!!
He will do it!!!!
The little things that God does to encourage us!
Prior to Christmas, sick and trying to keep going
Getting discouraged! God, our home does not feel like Christmas!
My home did not feel like Christmas!
Searching for trees, $79, $59, etc.
Went to Home Depot, $129, $79, $49, etc.
Right now all the trees are $29.99…I want the biggest!
Pulled the tree out, he said “Donated!”
I am the owner, I bless who I want to bless!
Began to cry!
Pray for me!!!! I prayed for him!
We started decorating the house!
God is the light of the world! God is the answer!!!!

Preached Word

Apostle David Watkins

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

  • God does not separate himself from his Son, his works

  • God is what he does

  • Exodus 34:14

  • Thou shalt have no others Gods before me

  • It is never too late to come back stronger

  • God is doing something and saying this is who I am

  • God is known by what he does

  • 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!

  • I am my ministry and my ministry is me!

  • If you see my calling you see me!

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
