Evangel Bible Church of Silicon Valley
We've been in Milpitas since 2009. We are a community of sinners saved by grace and radically transformed by the good news (evangel) of Jesus Christ. We are singles, marrieds, families, etc. who seek for our children, our neighbors, our coworkers, and all others to come to know our dear Lord and Savior. Come and join us on a Sunday to hear about Jesus Christ who forgives sinners and gives them eternal life and calls them to be His disciples.
People can be overzealous about things God could care less about. The Pharisees were such people. They vigorously promoted and guarded their own man-made religion. With the healing of the invalid, the Son of God contradicted and disrespected their religious rules. How would the Pharisees respond? Would they submit to His divine authority? Or, would they contend for their own rules and requirements? Listen to find out.
Jesus makes a connection between the healed man’s sin and his sickness. Even though the modern world would like to reject this notion, the Scriptures reveal that the sovereign God who rules over all things also orchestrates human sickness and even uses it at times to chastise people of their sin.

Unlike the many superstitious people in the first century, Jesus does not entertain false beliefs but truly heals a disabled man as only the Son of God can. Moreover, Jesus heals with a purpose - the Lord's compassion is not limited to this person's physical condition only, but ultimately the everlasting condition of his soul, calling on the man to repent, turn away from his sin, and follow Christ.
Jesus’ healing was confirmed. The royal official wasn’t simply satisfied to have his son healed. He wanted to know about Jesus whether He was really responsible for this miracle. This healing was confirmed as a fact, with precision, and it served as a sign of Jesus’ true identity.
The Lord knows what we need better than we know ourselves. The royal official came to Jesus for the healing of his son, but He had in mind to lead him to something far greater—saving faith. This man starts off on the right foot. He sees no signs but begins to trust His Word and obey Him.
Jesus spoke the word of the Father. But even His own countrymen did not give Him the honor due to a spokesman for God. True believers are those who believe and receive Jesus’ words as the very word of God. Listen to learn more.
Paul appeals to Philemon regarding Onesimus, Philemon’s runaway slave whom Paul was sending back to his master.
Paul addresses the recipients of the letter and then specifically thanks and prays for the main recipient of the letter: Philemon.
Paul instructs the Colossian church concerning the nearby church in Laodicea. He then picks up the pen and adds his own personal greetings.
Paul didn't serve alone. A team of six exemplary men surrounded him. These brothers, like Paul, cared for the Colossians and sent their warm greetings.
Paul wraps up his letter with commendations, greetings, and final words. The first of these is found here: a warm introduction to two faithful brothers.
Having addressed each of the household relationships, Paul now turns his attention back to the whole church to give his final exhortations.
When the crowds drew near, Jesus lets His disciples witness a miracle of multiplying bread, firsthand. With just 5 loaves of bread and two fish, Jesus feeds 5,000 people! This should tell us that the Father sent Jesus.
Men are powerless when it comes to sickness or death, but Jesus has power over both. In fact, Jesus can raise a person from the dead as if they were merely asleep because He is God!
What Jesus did shows that He has authority over both things that we can see and things that we can’t see. He is God!
Did you know that there are people who hear God’s word but don’t really hear? Jesus talks about 3 kinds of people who don’t hear right, but a fourth kind who hears right!
Jesus refutes the Pharisees for speaking evil of the Holy Spirit even when He has clearly shown them the truth and that this is so wicked that they cannot be forgiven.
Jesus calls all who are spiritually weary to come to Him. Only He can give rest for your soul.
Jesus shows His divine authority to forgive the sins of a paralytic by healing him. Jesus is God.
Jesus marvels at a Roman centurion's faith. People from all nations will enter Christ's eternal kingdom.
Jesus calls. People follow. He teaches unlike anybody else. Even the demons must obey His command.
Jesus never sinned. He always responded to temptation with the Word of God.
