THE PROCESS OF ENTERING REST PT. 2 – RETURNING “Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” Acts 3:19 As I mentioned in Part 1, there is a process to entering... read more

VISION SERMONS

Here are 2 sermons on VISION that I gave to begin the New Year. The first sermon points to King Jesus and how vital it’s that our lives are tethered to the BIG VISION, without this we are relegated to being overwhelmed by the giants in all our lives: https://soundcloud.com/islavistachurch/vision-jason-lomelino-1117 The second sermon is about VISION... read more

THE MIND TO SUFFER

I have been reading 1 Peter this last week. This book has always stirred me to see suffering and hardship as a gift to my faith and a greater invitation to step more into the life I was created for. I have come to understand over these years that... read more

CORRECTION ISN’T REJECTION

Growing up without Jesus and mostly taking care of myself caused me to not be a big fan of correction. I never fully despised authority, I just thought I was beyond needing to be corrected by authority. You can say I had a pretty strong orphan spirit before coming to know Jesus,... read more

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY

For years, many of us have been taught a gospel that rests on the wisdom of men rather than on the power of the Spirit (read 1 Corinthians 2:3-5). We have had the Truth preached to us in word; however, far too many of us are lacking the experience... read more

BIG GOD = SMALLER PROBLEMS

Where did He get that phrase, “living God?” From his life in secret with Yahweh. He got that while taking care of sheep and discovering things about God’s goodness and faithful love pursuing him all the days of his life (Psalm 23). No matter what you’re facing today, know that God wants to shrink the size of your problem.

HELP ME GOD

Witten October of 2014 (still applicable today as it was two years ago): Jeremiah, my five year old, is throwing sand at his sister Hope, my seven year old, again. Hope is not allowing her sister, Joanna, my three year old, into her playhouse, causing her to scream, which... read more

FREEDOM IN CHRIST

Jesus was not a demon hunter. His mission was not to track down demons and to cast them out of individuals. His mission was to bring His world (Heaven) into this world (Earth). However, as He went about doing good and bringing heaven to earth, demons would naturally rear... read more

FILTER YOUR THOUGHTS

I often find myself saying to the Isla Vista Church family: Not all your thoughts are your own thoughts. For some people this is new information; for others, it serves as a reminder that the battle is real and the enemy is a liar. Jesus said clearly in John... read more

IN WORD & DEED – PT 2

The great saints throughout history who have lived Spirit-filled lives are those who did not separate the physical from the spiritual. Before explaining this further, I wish to note that I am not referring to the much-debated topic of the sacred and the secular. Though I believe that once... read more

IN WORD & DEED – PT 1

“Deeds give body to words. As we do acts of power, our words will take on authority, and a new sense of reality will fill our hearts.” – A.W. Tozer It seems as if the wide chasm between ideology and action has been so thoroughly painted over that we... read more
