Bad News

March 21, 2018

The USA is in trouble within. Far too often there is news about a school being attacked, usually by a student. Children are killed or injured. Police officers are in constant danger, and some are shot doing their duty. Unrest—murders, robbery and every kind of sinful activity is reported everyday. It is discouraging to see the news on TV, social media or radio. When will it all end? The Bible says there is hope for our Nation. Christian it is up to us. We need to put God first, humble ourselves before Him. He will heal our land. If we don’t things will only get worse.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.


True Love

February 10, 2018

In February we see advertisements on TV, in stores and everywhere featuring hearts and flowers and talk about love and Valentines. It is a great time for the card companies, florists and candy companies. Restaurants will have overflow crowds on February 14th. Many people confuse romance with true love. True love is caring for someone so much that you would be willing to give your life for that person. That is the love that Jesus had for us when He died on the cross to save us.

John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

The night is cold and dark. Mary and Joseph know that the birth of the BABY is going to be soon. Mary is in pain, probably a little afraid. No sterile hospital, nurses or midwives for her. A smelly, animal filled stable is the birthplace for the KING of kings.

Was Joseph the only one in attendance or did he run for help? Unanswered questions about the birth of our SAVIOR. But this we do know… Mary was a person chosen by God to bring His SON into the world and she had the same physical pain and emotional feelings that we have. The Bible says Mary pondered these things in her heart.

Then the miracle. JESUS is born and they laid HIM in a manger. Mary did not know that 2000 years later we would celebrate the birth of her CHILD. So on this Christmas Eve remember the true meaning of Christmas and honor Him with your gift to Him. Give Him your love, time and service not just on Christmas but everyday.

Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

What Do You Hear?

December 3, 2017

When you go to church what do you hear? Sermons on sin or sermons that make you feel good. We need to hear the truth coming from preachers today. If you have a Pastor that preaches about sin and redemption, encourage him. If you do not hear anything but social gospel, maybe you should find another church.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.


Two Times a Year

December 2, 2017

The church is decorated for Christmas, wreaths, garlands, lights, beautiful flowers. The choir is prepared, the Pastor has his message ready and the congregation comes to worship.

There are two times a year when the churches are full, Christmas and Easter. Both times are to celebrate the coming of Jesus. Christmas to celebrate His birth and Easter to celebrate his coming out of the grave and victory over death.

Are you a two times a year church goer? If that is the only time you worship Jesus, you may miss His third coming when He will meet born again Christians in the air.

Then the churches that preach the gospel should be empty. Think about going to church and it is almost empty. No Pastor, no choir, only a few people who missed the true message of Jesus birth. God sent His Son as a gift that we might be saved. Do not be left to go to an empty church. Accept God’s gift of salvation today, then go to church and celebrate Jesus’ birth and you can truly worship from your heart.

Galatians 4:4-7 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

Once every 18 months a complete total eclipse occurs somewhere in the world. Today in the northern USA this wonderful natural event will take place this afternoon. From Georgia northward schools are closing, highways are crowded with people traveling to get a better position to see this unusual sight. Any beautiful occurrence or wonderful thing in the heavens or on the earth reminds us of one thing that the Bible, God’s Holy Word tells us in the very first verse:

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Life and Death

August 10, 2017

In the way of righteousness is life; and in the path thereof there is no death.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

True Worship

February 26, 2017

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Salt and Light

February 12, 2017

Matthew 5 is about being distinct in character. How a Christian is to be clearly different from this world, noticeably different in a good way. This particular teaching was coming from the mouth of Jesus Himself. He not only said how we are to be distinct, but when we are, we are blessed with a true happiness & peace that only God gives. Plus He tells what we would obtain for being distinct. We are called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Christ urges us to be a good example. I challenge you to read Matthew chapter 5 and be determined to be distinct in this world and watch for your blessings.

Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV) Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

My Sheep Hear My Voice

February 9, 2017

“My sheep hear my voice” is what the scripture says, not “my sheep can hear My voice” or “My sheep should hear My voice” but that they do hear His voice. Note also that God directs His voice to His sheep. He doesn’t say “My intelligent follower”, or “the popular or kind”. No, He says, “My sheep”. The sheep knows the sound, the inflection, of its shepherd’s voice. So we are to know the voice of God in our life as a Christian. How does God speak to us, His sheep? Clearly He speaks through His Word. Read it, study it, and listen to it.

John 10:3b (KJV) “…the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them… “

John 10:14 (KJV) “I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.”
