Pastor Waller invites you, your family and friends to come to Sabbath school and church services this Sabbath for a refreshing, a revival and a reunion with Jesus in His sanctuary.  Jesus is making ALL THINGS NEW!



 
Sermon Title: The Sanctuary: Bread of Life
Making enough money to satisfy our wants and needs seem to elude even the very rich.  One of the main reasons for people not surrendering their lives to God is the fear of not having enough to live comfortably. They fear God cannot truly supply all their needs (physical, mental, emotional, or social).  It appears that the unchurched or non-Christian have more fun and more money than those who love and obey God. Pastor Waller’s journey into the Sanctuary looks at the real reason behind world hunger and poverty through the teachings of Moses, Paul and Jesus in this week’s sermon entitled, “The Sanctuary: Bread of Life.”
 
Sermon Title: The Sanctuary: Perilous Times
Last Sabbath we learned that the Creator of heaven and earth is the only true God of decency and order.  We also learned that such decency and order requires sacrificial faith which is brought about by God in our lives which is made evident by loving obedience to God. In this week’s sermon entitled, “The Sanctuary: Perilous Times”, we are reminded that we live in a world that is far removed from the Creator and many professed Christians are being dangerously blinded to the fact that they are following after the world in establishing their own laws for peace and equity which bring filth into God’s House that war against God and His people.
 
 
 
Sermon Title: The Sanctuary: Decency & In Order
Does it really matter how a person practices their faith in God? There are over a hundred thousand religions to choose in the world. All profess to have the truth. For many, truth is whatever suits you, so it really does not matter what a person believes just as long as others, who believe differently, are not condemned for what they believe.  In this week’s lesson of the Sanctuary, Pastor Waller examines the order of service and how the Sanctuary includes every person’s belief. The Sermon for this week is entitled, The Sanctuary: Decency & In Order.
 
 
Sermon Title: The Sanctuary: The Science of Healing-Salvation
Scriptural References: Exodus 25:8-9, 40; Hebrew 10:5; Hebrews 8:5 & Romans 8:29
Central Thought: The plan of salvation is taught and understood through the services of the Sanctuary.
Theme: God’s Grace from start to finish is complete.
 
Salvation is more than a notion, hope, faith or thought. It involves all these and more. Salvation is a science. It is a free gift from God prepared before the foundation of the world that is delivered to us from God the Father through the sanctuary services on earth. By God’s grace, Pastor Waller shares light on the Science of salvation and what God is doing right now as we wait for the Second Coming of Christ, in his sermon—“The Sanctuary: The Science of Salvation”.
 
Sermon Title: The Sanctuary: System
 
It is common knowledge that we are creatures of habit. Unfortunately, many have adopted the idea that as long as we are human beings we are bound to sin.  While we demand justice on one hand we cry for mercy on the other.  Yet, it is baffling that one culture may condemn some behaviors as immoral or amoral while another culture reveres the same behaviors as totally acceptable and morally correct. In this week's sermon, entitled "The Sanctuary: System", Pastor Waller shares how to establish a real saving relationship with Christ and how to short circuit bad habits by the power of the Sanctuary.
 
Sermon Title: The Sanctuary of God
Scripture References: Psalms 11:4; Habakkuk 2:20; Psalms 73:17; Hebrews 8:1-5; Hebrews 9:8-12; Revelation 1:13 & Revelation 21:22
Although Seventh-day Adventist have seven pillars or "landmarks" of faith in and by which every church member should govern themselves, many are asking, "What makes being a Seventh-day Adventist so special?" "God is not going to save people by denominations. He's going to save them as individuals!" They exclaim, “Does it really matter what day a person worships on? God loves everybody the same, doesn't He?"
Today, to assist us in the study of the WORD of GOD, highlighting the first pillar of faith, Pastor Waller begins a biblical teaching series entitled, "The Sanctuary of God", where he will highlight the seven pillars of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. 


 “We all need to keep the subject of the sanctuary in mind. God forbid that the clatter of words coming from human lips should lessen the belief of our people in the truth that there is a sanctuary in heaven, and that a pattern of this sanctuary was once built on this earth. God desires His people to become familiar with this pattern, keeping ever before their minds the heavenly sanctuary, where God is all and in all. We must keep our minds braced by prayer and a study of God’s Word, that we may grasp these truths.” Ellen G. White Letter 233, 1904.
 
 
Sermon Title: The Letting God Part 1 & 2
Scriptural References: Exodus 5:1, 2; Exodus 6:1-8; Exodus 8:1,2, 20; Isa. 45:5-12; Amos 3:1-8 
Central Text: 1 John 4:1-21
Theme: God Cannot Be Stopped!
 
Ever since Lucifer chose to become the devil, he has sought to defame God by attempting to show that love is a weakness and not a strength. He has accused God and all who profess to worship Him for all the misery of the world. He had sought to turn God against Himself by tempting Him to turn against His own creation—His own human family.  He has asserted that God claims to have created everything, hasn’t He? The devil and all the fallen angels are trying to turn God’s very own creation against him.  Unfortunately, today, many are agreeing with the devil. They are looking with dread that the end of all things is upon us. This fear of the end has even caused some professed Christians to turn from talking about last day events and focus on the everyday blessings of God. They see themselves as loving and understanding but they question the benevolence of God. The realities of the times in which we live are causing some to fear, while it is causing others to be more defiant. The Judeo-Christian God is seen as weak or fiction and human reason and governance is considered supreme. By God’s grace, Pastor Waller shares light on the unstoppable God, the Ten plagues of Egypt and the Seven Last plagues, in his sermon “The Letting God”.
 
 
Sermon Title: Do Real Christians Lie?
Scriptural References: Genesis 1:26-31; Genesis 3:15; Acts 5:3; Romans 1:25; Hebrews 6:18; Hebrews 10:23-39
Central Text: 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12
 
It has been about six weeks since we have entered into the New Year! How are you and your New Year’s resolution doing? Did you make any resolution—at all? Really? Isn’t it interesting or disappointing how we struggle to be true to ourselves and to others? What’s more fascinating or disheartening is how we look toward others to do for us what we are not willing to do ourselves. Have you ever been promised or told something by someone, only to discover what was promised or told to you was a lie? How did you feel? Be honest! Do you lie? When was the last time you told a lie? When was the last time you got upset because you were lied to or lied on? Have you ever avoided making commitments believing that you were unable to keep them? Do you try to avoid people altogether because you can no longer trust anyone (It’s an occasional “hi” or “bye” that’s it)?  If you don’t trust yourself, why should anyone trust you? If we cannot trust each other why should others trust us? Is there any human being we can believe? In fact, why should we trust the God of the Bible that known liars have told us about?
In this week’s sermon, Pastor Waller shares light on the three biggest professional liars known and why God let people lie and believe lies, in his sermon, “Do Real Christians Lie?”
 
 
 
Sermon Title: Voices, Voices, Voices
Scriptural References: Genesis 3:8, 10, 17; Genesis 4:10 James 1:12-19; Acts 10:13
Central Text: James 1:12-19
 
We are bombarded with voices all the time. Which would you prefer, your parents putting you on “punishment” or giving you what seems to be an endless lecture? Voices come at us and seem to control how we think, feel and behave. Do you talk to yourself? Who responds to you when you do? Have you driven in your car and without picking up a phone begin to talk to another driver who had just done something dangerous or reckless? Even though the driver could not hear you because both you and the driver had your windows up and that driver you decided to talk to, who just cut you off, and is now several yards in front of you; you still decide to “talk” to them. Have you ever heard your name called, but when you responded there was no one there? Or if someone was there they tell you it was not them? Do you find yourself talking and no one seems to listen to you?
In this week’s sermon, listen as Pastor Waller shares what God says about listening to voices.
 
 
Sermon Title: Seven Principles for a Life of Abundant Happiness
Scriptural Reading: Proverbs 6:16-19
Central Text: John 10:1-10
 
A proper introduction reveals the essence of the body and conclusion of a matter. In programming computers, how the mathematical equations or computer language is arranged at its beginning will determine how the unit will basically function.  Builders understand the primary importance of the foundation of any material or structure. Financiers and planners will tell us that when we budget or plan we should do so with the end in mind. God has given us seven divine principles during the Creation week that guarantee success regardless of what endeavor a person may choose. These seven principles will be revealed in this week’s sermon.
 
 
Sermon Title: Breaking Bad Habits
Scriptures: Hebrews 11:40; Hebrews 12:1-13
Central Text: Hebrew 13:20
“This is the time of year when people make their New Year’s resolutions. Some have said, they will start a business, begin school, go back to school, lose weight, dress differently, change the company they keep, and the list goes on…. It seems the resolve to change fizzles out after a couple months, couple of weeks, a few days or only a fleeing moment. Can people really change? Can I change?
Pastor Waller’s first sermon for the New Year has been given of God to provide us with three biblical steps that are essential for breaking any and all bad habits in each of our lives.
 



2015 Sermons

Sermon Title: God-Family-Oneness: The Life-Style

Scripture(s): James 1:14, 15; James 4:1-3; Malachi 4:4-6; 1 John 4:8 (KJV)

Scripture Reading: John 17:17-19, 21, 23, 24-26

This week Pastor Waller’s sermon is entitled “God-Family-Oneness: The Life-Style.” Have you ever heard that “I” is the central reason for sin? Were you ever told that Satan was kicked out of heaven because he thought too much of himself? Are you sometimes made to feel that you are selfish when you focus on yourself? Do you feel like no one really cares about you? Do find defending yourself lead to quarrels and arguments? Do you sometimes think it would be best to separate yourself from some people—like family or church folk?

Sermonic Purpose: To compare and contrast the meaning and the importance of the word “I” in reference to God and “the world, the flesh and devils”.  The purpose for this sermon is to show “I” as the consummation of the character and attributes of a being that is reflected in the lifestyle.


Sermonic Teachings: This sermon and biblical study answers the questions, “How is God selfish?” and “Does God really allow people to have freewill?”
Key Concerns: PERSONAL IDENTITY and SOCIAL IDENTITY
 

Sermon Title: My Bondage-My Freedom: From Dreams to Egyptian Bondage (Part 1)
 
Scripture(s): Proverbs 23:7; Philippians 2:5; James 1:8; Galatians 2:20)
 
Scripture Reading: Exodus 15:26; Deuteronomy 7:15
Bi-polar disorders, depression, schizophrenia, suicidal thoughts are not uncommon among church members. What is causing these disorders? Why are these disorders and diseases among the people of God? Is there power in God’s word to heal these diseases today? 
  


Sermon Title: My Bondage-My Freedom: Friends with Benefits (Part 2)
 
Scripture(s): Luke 22:48; John14:15; John 15:10; 1John 2:3; 1John 2:4; Revelation 22:14
 
Scripture Reading: Exodus 20:1-7
 
We know how it feels to be taken advantage of by others.  Benjamin Franklin is credited for saying, “A Friend in deed is a friend indeed.” So what is that supposed to mean?  If I see a beggar on a corner to give to such a one without question?  Is the beggar my friend or am I to be a friend to the beggar? Do both of us have needs to fulfill? Could it mean, “You scratch my back and I scratch yours? Maybe it means that a person will only be your friend when you have something that will fulfill their need? When the Children of Israel needed food the Egyptians gave it to them and in return, they shared their skills with them. Egyptians under the cover of being friends with benefits with Israel eventually became the Israel’s oppressive dictator. 


Sermon Title: The Undeniable and Unforgettable Union

Scripture(s): Matthew 12:8; Leviticus 19:2

Many people like us are attending church today, while others are not aware that God prefer them to be taught of His word than to be laboring to serve others or themselves. What are our reasons for doing what we do on today like today? What are we seeking? Isn’t there somewhere better than being at church? Is God so selfish that He demands our attention with regard to what we really want? Are our imperfect selves really keeping the Sabbath Day holy? Is the Sabbath Holy by itself? Why does God need man to keep it holy? God has a word for his people who desire to be free from the burden of “keeping the Sabbath Day Holy”.  
 

Sermon Title: In Earth as It Is in Heaven
 
Scripture(s): Matthew 5:48 & 6:9 & 10
 
The fifth commandment tells us to honor our father and mother, but with today’s dysfunctional, blended and gender neutral families, how are we to look at this commandment? Are families any different than families were 50 years ago or during biblical times? Last year, in March 2014, a 21-year-old sued her parents over college tuition and won.  In New York, a teen, in the same month sued her parents for her private high school and future college tuition. In both cases the parents of these children claimed that their child would not obey them and they were disrespectful.  Both girls ended up leaving the parents’ home before suing them. On August 30, 2011, two grown children, in Illinois, raised in a $1.5 million home by their father, sued their mom for being a bad parent. Their father was their lawyer!
 
Sermon Title: Give & Take (Part 1)
 
Scripture: Romans 12:17- 20
The Sixth Commandment states, “Thou shalt not kill.” What does this mean? Was the first killing found in the Bible done by God?  We know that Cain killed Abel (Genesis 4:8), and Lamech killed a young man (Genesis 4:23).  Did God commission killings? If it is wrong to kill, why did God tell the first King of Israel to smite the Amalekites and utterly destroy all that they had and not to spare them? Saul was told to slay [kill] men and women, infants and suckling, oxen and sheep, camels and asses! (1Samuel 15:3).  When Saul did not utterly destroy the Amalekites why did God say He was sorry he had placed Saul as King? Since the time of Christ, men have gone on crusades turning pagan lands into Christian lands by the edge of the sword and have enacted laws forcing obedience to avoid imprisonment and/or death.  Is this God’s way?
 
Sermon Title: Give & Take (Part 2)
 
Scripture: Ephesians 5:25 - 27
The Seventh Commandment states, “Thou shalt not commit adultery.” What does this mean? What is adultery?  Is adultery when a married person cheats on his/her spouse? Is adultery something that involves some type of illicit physical encounter between two married people? 
 
 
Sermon Title: What Is Truth?: Thou Shalt Not Steal
 
Scriptures: John 8:30-32, John 18:36 & 37
Jesus’ greatest controversy with the Jews and the Gentile Pontius Pilate was over this week’s question, “What is truth?” Is truth…
·         Relative?
·         Circumstantial?
·         Perceptional conceived & performed by the majority?
·         Subjective (Personal)?
·         Tangible Facts?
·         Intangible concepts (ideas, dreams or thoughts)?
 
“What is truth?” is a simple question that has been asked before time, resulting in people providing perplexing answers with devastating results at times. The ancients (Aristotle, Socrates, Plato and many others) have sought to answer this question. Encyclopedias and volumes of literature have sought to expound on it. Universities have devoted philosophical classes to this question. Scientist, judiciary custodians based major decisions on this question and countries are at war because of what is perceived to be the answers to this question. Homes and churches have been divided and destroyed because of incorrect understandings as to what is truth. Some illnesses and diseases are running rapid because those who profess to have the answer really do not know. The Bible tells us that some will be “ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of truth” (II Timothy 3:7). God has an answer for His people who are sincerely seeking after the “Truth” in these last days. Are you a Truth-seeker?
