In this 3rd teaching on faith, Pastor Charlie looks at "fighting the good fight of faith" from 1 Timothy 6.

We give five different things that Paul teaches about "fighting the good fight of faith" in 1 Timothy 6.

The wicked are going to do evil things in the last days. But what should the Christians do? Paul tells Timothy exactly what the righteous should do during perilous times.

Fasting 01 - Jesus & Fasting - Audio
May 8, 2017
Starting with the powerful story of deliverance of a demonized boy in Matthew 17 and Mark 9, we learn the truth of the power of prayer and fasting. When we start on any new subject of truth, it's always good to start with Jesus Christ of Nazarene. He is the full of truth. We begin with the well-known story of Jesus fasting forty days and forty nights in the wilderness and being tempted by the devil. When we fast, we don't just...
Fasting 02 - The Fast God Has Chosen - Audio
May 8, 2017
Perhaps the most powerful instruction in the entire Bible on fasting is found in Isaiah, Chapter 58. In this teaching, Pastor Charlie examines the first 12 verses, verse-by-verse. The Lord commands (3 Hebrew imperative verbs) Isaiah in the first verse to expose the sins of His people. It's our sins and transgressions that separate us from God. In verse 2 these people appear to be very spiritual - they fast, seek God, and appear to have...
Fasting 03 - The Power Of Corporate Fasts - Audio
May 8, 2017
The most powerful spiritual weapon available to Christian believers is corporate fasts. God does amazing things when an individual believer fasts, but supernatural power is released when a group of believers fast sincerely before the Lord. In this special study, Pastor Charlie covers eight (8) corporate fasts in the Bible. We remind ourselves that five can put 100 to flight, and 100 can defeat 10,000. We start out with the first verse that...
Fasting 04 - By Nothing But Prayer and Fasting - Audio
May 8, 2017
Jesus said in Mark 9:29 that "this kind comes out by nothing but prayer and fasting." The words, "by nothing," indicate that nothing else will work. Are you frustrated by unanswered prayers or negative situations that just seem to go from bad to worse? Maybe you need to "fast and pray." Starting with the first mention of fasting in the Judges 20, Pastor Charlie teaches on many important practical truths about...

This PowerPoint file is for the audio teaching above with the same name. It includes all the scripture references and a comparison between the Israelites and the Benjamites in Judges 20 and all of the possessions brought back by the exiles in Ezra 8.
Fasting 05 - Daniel and Fasting - Audio
January 1, 2018
In this important study, we start with Daniel fasting in Chapter 9. This was a fast to humble himself and confess the sins of his people for their Babylonian exile. We also examine Daniel Chapter 1 and the "ten day vegetable fast." What really happened to Daniel and the three Hebrew children in that heathen land. Second, we look at Daniel 10 because here Daniel is mourning and he abstains from certain types of meats and wine.
Fasting 06 - Isaiah 58 Fasting - Audio
January 8, 2018
In this study, like the teaching above, "Fasting 02," we study Isaiah 58 verse by verse. God's people could not understand why their prayers when unanswered when they fasted. The Lord reminded them that it was because they did not have proper relationships with other people. Fasting was not just for us to "afflict our soul" and suffer food deprivation. It was to break yokes, feed the hungry, care for the homeless -...
Fasting 07 - Fasting and the Power of God - Audio
January 22, 2018
Fasting unleashes the power of God. Jesus said that after the bridegroom is taken away, His disciples will fast. The early prophets and teachers fasted and heard from the Holy Spirit. The Israelites nearly wiped out the tribe of Benjamin after fasting. Mordecai, Esther and their fellow Jews fasted to avert disaster. King Jehoshaphat fasted and heard from the Holy Spirit and God brought about a great deliverance. Joel called all of...

Focused on Christ Not on the World - Audio
February 7, 2019
This teaching shows that the main thing in a Christian's life is the Lord Jesus Christ. The Ephesian church was doing everything, but they lost their first love. Paul said that everything he used to engage in as a Pharisee was total garbage, trash, compared to knowing Jesus Christ. Mary only wanted to sit at the feet of Jesus and hear His word. Using personal stories and verses from the Bible, Pastor Charlie reminds men again that...
