This summer, you are invited to Study the Book of Daniel every Sabbath during the worship service with Pastor James Mangum.

The first half of the book of Daniel deals with questions pertaining mainly to the kingdom of Babylon as it existed in the days of the prophet. The last six chapters are devoted entirely to the history of the world as a whole, and in visions given at various times, the prophet is shown the significant events till the end of time. In the seventh chapter, the prophet gives the history from the days of Babylon to the investigative judgment and reveals the future of God’s people. The last three chapters of the book of Daniel relate to the last recorded vision of the prophet. The tenth chapter details world history with important spiritual lessons.

For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for jthree days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!” Esther 4:14-16

September 2, Pastor Mangum's sermon is entitled "From North and South to the Beautiful Land," Daniel 11. Invite your friends and family to join you and share our live stream: Facebook, Vimeo-church website, and Youtube.

"And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time" Daniel 11:35

Chapter 11 follows three basic points. First, it begins with the Persian kings and discusses their fates and the end time, when the king of the north attacks the holy mountain of God. Second, a succession of battles between the king of the North and the South and describe how they affected God's people. Third, it concludes with a happy ending as the king of the North faces his demise by the "glorious holy mountain." Such a positive conclusion signals the end of evil and the establishment of God's eternal kingdom.

August 12, Pastor James' sermon is entitled "FROM BATTLE TO VICTORY," Daniel 10. Invite your friends and family to join you and share our live stream: Facebook, Vimeo-church website, and Youtube.

"O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!" Daniel 10:19

The heavenly messenger pulls the curtain aside and reveals to Daniel the cosmic war that transpires behind the scenes of human history. As we study this chapter, we see that when we pray, we engage in this cosmic conflict in a way that has profound repercussions. But we are not alone in our struggles; Jesus engages the battle against Satan on our behalf. We shall learn that the ultimate fight we are involved in is not against earthly human powers but the powers of darkness.


August 12, 2023

On Sabbath, August 12, Pastor James' sermon is entitled "THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH," continuing the summer series "The Book of Daniel." One of the most beautiful and powerful examples of intercessory prayer occurs in Daniel 9. Invite your friends and family to join you and share our live stream: Facebook, Vimeo-church website, and Youtube.

His prayer exemplifies our need for God's grace and mercy because it reveals the gap between a holy God and sinful humanity—a gap that can be closed only by the Messiah, the God who became a human being and thus was the only One who could bridge that gap between humanity and God.

Perhaps that is why this chapter ends with one of the most compelling and intense Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament, one that forcefully predicts the coming of Jesus, who arrived to bridge that gap. And though, in the immediate context, Daniel was concerned with the political and physical restoration of his nation, the prophecy points to the One whose advent would, eventually, lead to the ultimate restoration of sinful humanity to a holy, sinless God. 


AUGUST 5, 2023


On Sabbath, August 5, Pastor James is preaching "THE PRINCE OF THE HEAVENLY HOST" Daniel 8, continuing The Book of Daniel Series.

Daniel 8 develops a theme about the attack against Christ as the High Priest in the heavenly sanctuary. 

Daniel 8 exudes sanctuary imagery. The beasts used as symbols in Daniel 7 are unclean (lion, bear, leopard), while those used in Daniel 8 are clean (ram, goat). Also, in contrast to the beasts of Daniel 7, the animals in Daniel 8 are sanctuary animals. By employing these animals as symbols of kingdoms, the Lord directs the reader's mind toward the sanctuary, thus giving hints on how we can understand and interpret the vision.

This chapter also emphasizes the element of conflict at two levels: the historical and the spiritual. The goat attacks the ram and is victorious; the little horn attacks the south (the east and Palestine) and is victorious. But, then, the little horn does something that no other kingdom has done: It goes against the Prince of the Host in the heavenly sanctuary. This is the assault against Heaven itself!


JULY 22, 2023

Sabbath, July 22, we will continue the study of the Book of Daniel. "THE ANCIENT OF DAYS STILL REIGNS" Daniel chapter 7. 

Daniel is given his first vision and prophecy from God, which details the rise and fall of the great persecuting kingdoms represented as beasts of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, and the Little Horn power. Because of the persecuting perplexity of the Little Horn power, God gives Daniel visions into the heavenly court where he sees God the Son (Son of Man) being brought before God the Father (The Ancient of Days), beginning the investigative and millennIal judgment during the time of the Little Horn. Judgment favors the saints, and God's kingdom will be set up, which will not pass away, proving that the Ancient of Days still reigns!


July 15, 2023

Join us as we continue the study of the Book of Daniel. "GOD SENT HIS ANGEL" Daniel chapter 6.

Daniel was high in command, but the agents of Satan sought to make his faithfulness to God the cause of his destruction. Daniel considered supplication to God of such importance that he would rather sacrifice his life than relinquish it.

God permitted evil angels and wicked men to accomplish their purpose to make the deliverance of His servant marked and the defeat of the enemies of truth and righteousness more complete. Through the courage of one man who chose to be faithful, Satan was defeated, and the name of God was honored. This deliverance power allows the servant of God to maintain his integrity under all circumstances and triumph through divine grace.



July 1, 2023

Join us as we continue the study of the Book of Daniel. "WEIGHTED IN HEAVEN'S BALANCES" Daniel chapter 5. 

Many need now to consider the words, “TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting”. God's holy, everlasting, immutable law is the standard by which man is to be tried. This law defines what we shall and shall not do, saying, Thou shalt, and, Thou shalt not. This law is summed up in the two great principles, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind, and thy neighbor as thyself.”

This means just what it says. O, how few will be prepared to meet the law of God on the great day of judgment! Man, weighed against God's holy law, is found wanting. The precepts of the law enlighten us, but no man can by them be justified. Weighed and found wanting is our inscription by nature. But Christ is our mediator, and accepting Him as our Saviour, we may claim the promise, “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” 


Sabbath, June 24, Pastor Mangum is preaching his sermon entitled "HE HUMBLES THE PROUD,” continuing the Book of Daniel Series.

The strength of nations and individuals is not found in the opportunities and facilities that appear to make them invincible; it is not found in their boasted greatness. Human histories relate people's achievements and their success to worldly greatness. God's history describes men and women as heaven views them.

Through his terrible humiliation, Nebuchadnezzar was brought to see his weakness and acknowledge the supremacy of the living God. To every person, God has assigned a place in His great plan. Each person, according to their choice, is deciding their eternal destiny. 


June 17, 2023

Sabbath, June 17, Pastor Mangum's sermon is based on Daniel Chapter 3, "DELIVERED FROM FIRE,” continuing the summer series "The Book of Daniel.  

A severe test came to three Hebrew youths when Nebuchadnezzar issued a proclamation, calling upon the kingdom's officers to assemble at the dedication of the great image and the sound of the music everyone needed to worship it. 

From age to age, the heroes of the faith have been marked by their fidelity to God, and they have been brought conspicuously before the world so that their light might shine on those in darkness. Daniel and his three companions are notable examples of Christian heroism. From their experience, we learned what God does for those who serve Him with the whole purpose of heart.


JUNE 10, 2023

Dr. Alanzo Smith (GNYC President) will continue the Summer Series “The Book of Daniel - Chapter 2.” 

Behold the Jewish captive in the presence of the monarch of the world's most powerful empire. In his first words, he disclaimed honor for himself and exalted God as the source of all wisdom. The anxious king asked if Daniel had an interpretation of his dream. Daniel replied: “The secret which the king demanded, cannot be shown by the wise men, astrologers, and magician; but there is a God that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days.”

In the history of nations, the student of God's word may behold the literal fulfillment of divine prophecy. Babylon passed away because, in prosperity, its rulers had regarded themselves as independent of God and had ascribed the glory of their kingdom to human achievement. The kingdoms that followed were even more corrupt, and these sank lower in the scale of moral worth.
