September 2, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

THE ENMITY IN GOD’S GRACE

The apostle Paul declared: “For I am not ashamed of the GOSPEL of Christ; for it is the POWER unto salvation to everyone that believes…for therein is the righteousness of God revealed” by whom we have received GRACE and apostleship for OBEDIENCE to the faith among all nations, for His name.”  Rom. 1: 16, 17, 5, 6.

“I will put ENMITY between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed, and thou shalt bruise his head.’ Gen. 3:15. The divine sentence pronounced against Satan after the fall of man, was also a prophecy, embracing all ages to the close of time, and FORESHADOWING the great conflict [or controversy] to engage ALL the races of men [not only black or white] who should live upon the earth.”

CHRIST SUFFERS GOD’S WRATH AGAINST SIN ALONE AT GETHSEMANE

August 19, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

CHRIST SUFFERS GOD’S WRATH AGAINST SIN ALONE AT GETHSEMANE

“I have trodden the wine press alone, and from the peoples no one was with Me.”

Isa. 63:3, NKJV.

So prophesied the gospel prophet regarding Christ’s superhuman agony at Gethsemane culminating at Golgotha. The Greek ‘Gethsemani is a transliteration of the Aramaic ‘Gath Shemani,’ meaning, ‘oil press.’ It cannot be mere coincidence that this specially appointed place located in the western side of Mount of Olives was called an ‘oil press’ where Christ would fulfill the prophecy that He would ‘trod the winepress alone’ for our salvation.

GOD CREATOR AND HIS KINGDOM ARE BASED ON DIVINE, NOT HUMAN, LAW AND ORDER

August 2, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

GOD CREATOR AND HIS KINGDOM ARE BASED ON DIVINE, NOT HUMAN, LAW AND ORDER

“But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you set at naught your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.” “So then everyone one of us shall give account of himself to God.”

Rom. 14:10, 12, A.V.

“The God who made the laws of the universe, who determined the laws of nature, also made the laws MAN’S MENTAL AND PHYSICAL NATURE. He is also the same God who gave the Ten Commandments as the guide of life [of man who He created in His image and likeness].”

“It was according to a predetermined plan that the law which demands the life of the transgressor should have as its author the One who was later to suffer the penalty for man’s transgression of it.”

THE PERFECT LAW OF A PERFECT GOD vs THE IMPERFECT LAWS OF IMPERFECT MAN

June 25, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:


THE PERFECT LAW OF A PERFECT GOD vs THE IMPERFECT LAWS OF IMPERFECT MAN


“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul.” Psalms.19:7, KJV.


“The laws which God have His ancient people were wiser, better, and more humane than those of the most civilized nations of the earth. The laws of nations bear the marks of infirmities and passions of the unrenewed [unconverted] heart]; but God’s law bears the stamp of the divine.

COVETOUSNESS : AN EVIL OF GRADUAL DEVELOPMENT.

June 19, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

COVETOUSNESS : AN EVIL OF GRADUAL DEVELOPMENT.
“Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” “Take heed, and beware of covetousness.” “Let it not be ONCE named among you.” Col. 3:5; Matt. 6:24; Luke 12:15; Eph. 5: 3.

“The deadly sin that led to Achan’s ruin had its ROOT in COVETOUSNESS, of all sins ONE OF THE MOST COMMON and the MOST LIGHTLY REGARDED [by man but not by God!]. While other offenses meet with detection and punishment, how RARELY does the violation of the tenth commandment so much as call forth censure. The ENORMITY of this sin, and its terrible results, are the LESSONS of Achan’s history.

‘BACK TO EDEN’ MEANS MUCH MORE THAN ORIGINAL DIET

May 27, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

‘BACK TO EDEN’ MEANS MUCH MORE THAN ORIGINAL DIET

“God the Father always worked through His Son, both in creation and redemption (Gen. 1:1-24; Col. 1:15-19; Heb. 1:1-3,8].  Therefore it was Jesus Christ who created ‘the heavens and the earth’ and ‘rested the seventh day.’

‘All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.  He was in the world and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.’ John 1:3,10,KJV.

NATURE STILL SPEAKS FOR GOD TO MAN

April 29, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

NATURE STILL SPEAKS FOR GOD TO MAN

God, who at various times and different ways is still speaking to us, thank God.  He speaks “in a still small voice.” When we pretend to be deaf, He speaks to us and to the churches in “trumpet tones,” as in “the midnight cry” and the “loud cry” of the third angel’s message.

He has been speaking to us through nature but we have not been looking and listening, distracted by so many things, especially this covid-19 pandemic.

How God Chose Gideon’s Elite Force of Three Hundred Men

How God Chose Gideon’s Elite Force of Three Hundred Men

   “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me.” Ezekiel 3: 17, vs 18-21; cf. 33: 1-20.

The gospel-prophet said: “His watchmen are blind, they are all ignorant; they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yes, they are greedy dogs which never have enough. And they are shepherds who cannot understand; they all look to their own way, everyone for his own gain, from his own territory.” Isa. 56: 10, 11, NKJV.

The counterfeit watchmen are the unfaithful, cowering, self-serving religious shepherds of the flock “who cannot understand,” spiritual guardians of the people, pastors, ministers who are not proclaiming God’s warning messages today. God further describes them as “dumb dogs that cannot bark,” “lazy and greedy dogs which never have enough.” If ever!
