OUR YOUTH AND THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT

September 25, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

OUR YOUTH AND THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT

“And [take] the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

Eph. 6:17

Jesus was particularly emphatic regarding the treatment of, welfare, and salvation of the tender, receptive and yes, vulnerability of the children and youth during His three and half year ministry on earth. He declared some of His  strongest words of rebuke and warnings ever against those in authority who would mislead and/or become stumbling blocks to the youngest members of His spiritual kingdom in earth! They are both literally and spiritually the helpless lambs of His flock!

“God’s holy, educating Spirit is in His Word! A light, a new and precious light, shines forth from every page. Truth is there revealed, and words and sentences are made bright and appropriate for the occasion, as the VOICE OF GOD speaking to the soul [the whole, living, rational person].

THE GIRDLE OF TRUTH: OUR SAFEGUARD AGAINST LYING AND LIARS

September 13, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

THE GIRDLE OF TRUTH: OUR SAFEGUARD AGAINST LYING AND LIARS

“Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth.”

Eph. 6:14, KJV.

“There is absolutely no safeguard against evil but truth. No man can stand firm for right in whose heart the truth does not abide. Thee is only one power that can make and keep us steadfast—the power of God, imparted to us by the GRACE of Christ.

“There are many in the church who take it for granted that they understand what they believe; but, until controversy arises, they do not know their own weakness. When separated from those of like faith and compelled to stand singly and alone to EXPLAIN their belief, they will be surprised to see how CONFUSED are their ideas of what they had accepted as truth.

SATAN’S SHADOWS DISAPPEAR IN GOD’S LIGHT

July 10, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

SATAN’S SHADOWS DISAPPEAR IN GOD’S LIGHT

“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.”

Dan. 12:10, Authorized version.

“Bear in mind that the time will never come when the shadow of Satan will not be cast athwart our pathway to obstruct our faith and eclipse the light coming from the Sun of Righteousness [Mal.4:2]. Our faith must not stagger, CLEAVE through that SHADOW. We have and experience that is not to be buried in the DARKNESS OF DOUBT. Our faith is not on FEELING but in TRUTH.  None us need flatter ourselves that while the world is progressing in wickedness we shall have no difficulties.

THE SABBATH POINTS TO NATURE AND NATURE POINTS TO THE CREATOR

June 1, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

THE SABBATH POINTS TO NATURE AND NATURE POINTS TO THE CREATOR

“All things were created by the Son of God. ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God….All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.’ John 1:1-3,KJV.

“And since the Sabbath is a MEMORIAL of the work of creation, it is a TOKEN of the love and power of Christ.  The Sabbath calls our attention to nature, and brings us into communion with the Creator. In the song of the birds, the sighing of the trees, and the music of the sea, we may hear His VOICE who talked with Adam in Eden in the cool of the day.

“And as we behold His power in nature we find COMFORT, for the Word that created all things is that which SPEAKS LIFE to the soul. He ‘who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.’ 2 Cor. 4:6.

WE DESPERATELY NEED GENUINE GRACE IN THIS COVID-19 MOMENTOUS MOMENT

May 3, 2020
FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

WE DESPERATELY NEED GENUINE GRACE IN THIS COVID-19 MOMENTOUS MOMENT

Good first working day morning of this week! Time to roll-up the sleeves of our mind. Check its spiritual oil dipstick first and see to makes sure you have enough oil of the Holy Spirit before starting its engines! Failure to do this has wrecked too many “brand new” Christian “character” cars. It lacks the “lubricating” power and properties of the Holy Spirit!

Let’s prayerfully and humbly turn to Jesus, the light, life, peace, wisdom and healer of our souls as He reveals Himself in the Written Word and ask Him what GRACE IS FOR.

SEALING TIME WILL NOT LAST LONGER

April 24, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

SEALING TIME WILL NOT LAST LONGER

“I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels…saying,hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.” Rev. 7:2,3,KJV.

The sealing, preparation for the latter rain, loud cry, mark of the beast test and the close of probation occurs simultaneously with the pre-advent judgment taking place in the most holy in heaven. Our lives are passing in review right now.

Unchain Your Heart from Worry and Fear

    “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind” (1 Tim. 1: 7).

People are Afraid’: Sen. Kamala Harris on What the Government Should Do About the Coronavirus & Life in one of the Epicenters.”: Sean Neuman, People, March 23, 2020.

Dear fellow Bible-believing Christians. Be honest. Are you worried and fearful because of this mysterious sudden emergence as if from nowhere (the blame-game is on) of this novel (new) corona virus that rapidly evolved into a global pandemic overnight, as it were like no other known previous to it—catching all flat-footed, instantly revealing how proud and self-confident finite mortals are and yet how shamefully and clumsily unprepared they are to deal with the bigger and greater catastrophes, calamities and conflicts that will be played out in the biggest stage and theater of the world.

WALKING IN THE LIGHT BRINGS COURAGE

March 25 2020
MESSAGE FOR THE DAY:


WALKING IN THE LIGHT BRINGS COURAGE.

Good morning Daniels and Daniellas, servants of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you last night from the lions crowned as a terrible virus? (Dan.6:20). If we have been faithfully walking in the light of all the truths we have been learning, our joint answer should be just like faithful Daniel recorded in verses 21, 22.
