OUR RESPONSE TO GOD’S INVITATION TO COME INTO HIS PRESENCE – February 19, 2017 – by Antonio Ulloa (Third in a series of four messages by Antonio Ulloa during the month of February with the theme: “How to Discover and Enjoy the Very Presence of God…Right Here on Earth!”) NOTE: We are sorry that an accidental technical problem (dead batteries in the recorder caused it to lose the recording) resulted in no audio recording of this message. However, Antonio shared on this same theme in another church, and they actually videotaped that series. A difference is that the series shared that time was five messages instead of the four being shared in February at Mt. Vernon. The message shared at Mt. Vernon on this Sunday was shared through two messages with that church. In order to hear “today’s message” at Mt. Vernon, you could listen to two videotaped messages shared in that previous series. While each time a message is shared it is unique, the substance of the message today with Mt. Vernon was also expressed in that series. Below we offer a link to the PowerPoint used at Mt. Vernon, and a link to the videotaped messages from that previous series. (A side benefit is that if someone missed some of the other messages in this series at Mt. Vernon, they could take in the entire series through this link.) click-here-for-related-powerpoint-in-pdf-format-ortgitcihp – OUR RESPONSE TO GOD’S INVITATION TO COME INTO HIS PRESENCE / Click HERE for Series by Antonio Ulloa (videotaped): “How to Discover and Enjoy the Very Presence of God…Right Here on Earth!”  This series was shared with Weaverland Mennonite Church in October, 2015, in five messages. When you click on this link the last of the five messages will appear first (at the top). If you scroll down you will see the titles of all five messages. Because Antonio blended two of these messages into one for Mt. Vernon, to hear these two messages, please listen to the third and fourth messages of the series at Weaverland, entitled respectively as “Our Response to God’s Invitation to Come Into His Presence,” and “My Personal Journey Into the Very Presence of God.” (Some of the worship was included in these videotapes. Antonio’s message entitled “Our Response…” begins at the 20:40 mark, and his message on “My Personal Journey…” begins at the 18:30 mark.) We are grateful that Weaverland videotaped these messages, and posted them online. (If you have any questions, please email them to office@mtvernonchristianchurch.com.)
