Long we have believed our leaders must have Godly principles,
It should then be easy to see that God’s people are meant to lead.
Yes we are sheep to Christ, and are to be meek in God’s eyes,
But people of God must live in every sense as
His Ambassadors!

 

 

A Voter’s Guide
good for any Election

The message is clear but you may have to do some reading.

 

It is the LOVE for Christ that we take up the cause
and go into action to do what is right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Which is worse, a scoffer that denies the existence of God

or a believer that lives like there was no sacrifice?

Bible Study

WE would LOVE to see YOU in Sunday Bible Study 9:45 am

In  1952
President Truman

established one day a year as a

"
National Day of Prayer."

In  1988
President Reagan
designated the
First Thursday in May of each year as

‘the’ National
Day of Prayer.

 

In 2009, President Obama opted not to have a service in the Whitehouse.  In 2010 a lower court ruled the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional, which was overturned then appealed in 2011.  The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is still pressing hard to abolish prayer within our government.

 

Don’t make a presidential sized mistake, giving unbelievers the idea they can destroy Faith in our Creator and replace it with faith in our government. We show our strength when we stand together and Pray Openly.

 

National Day of Prayer

Thursday, May 1, 2014 
Thursday, May 7, 2015

Be sure to gather and show ourselves united in Prayer.

Matthew 12:21 as our Scripture for this year: 
In His name the nations will put their hope.

 

Isn’t it odd how some people can trust God with every issue

 that comes along, but they can’t trust Him with their wallet?

 

 

Having cash flow problems? 

Consider this, maybe it’s ‘I’ trouble.

 I’ware is just too expensive
(communication)

 

I-pad, I-pod, I-phone, I-net service

Texting, Tweeting, & Facing

Not to mention TV, Cable, Phone, Internet, …..

With all that socializing we should be good,, right?

WRONG !!

All this socializing is generating ‘Social’ I-zing,

where whatever we can ‘talk’ about becomes acceptable?.  
Seems people neglect, God says there are things not fit for discussion.

(think about it)

 

There is so much time and money spent Social I-zing,

that we can’t afford the time to spend with God.

(a plan from Satan himself)

 

Maybe…. If we could reverse the trend…

 

Put ‘God First’ and the ‘I’ trouble would go away

(money is not the problem, putting God last IS)

 

 

Remember when we could just talk – face to face?

 We solved problems instead of caused problems.

 

 

 

 

 

God always has something on His Mind!

 All too often I don’t have a clue what it might be.

 To discover the answer, I can only pray…

 Then I find out it was always me.

 

 

 

Took Your Place

One day, a man went to visit a church. He got there early, parked his
car, and got out. Another car pulled up near and the driver got out and
said,  "I always park there! You took my place!"

The visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat and sat
down.

A young lady from the church approached him and stated, "That's my
seat!  You took my place!"

The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but said
nothing.

After Sunday School, the visitor went into the sanctuary and sat down.  
Another member walked up to him and said, "That's where I always sit! 
You took my place!"   The visitor was even more troubled by this
treatment, but still He said nothing.

Later as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them,
the visitor stood up, and his appearance began to change. Horrible scars
became visible on his hands and on his sandaled feet.

Someone from the congregation noticed him and called out, "What
happened to you?"

The visitor replied, as his hat became a crown of thorns, and a tear
fell from his eye, "I took your place."

 

We count it a privilege to honor our Lord

with our time, praise, service to others, and even some coin.

 

1 Corinthians 16: 1Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

 

Since by the order of Paul, Christians till today still meet on Sundays, the “first day of the week” to bring our tithes, wrapped with praise,

song, inspiration, dedication, public profession, baptism,

and yes, even a message of warning & encouragement.  

Have we forgotten the first reason for this meeting?

“the collection for the saints” (coin for God’s work)

The next 5 days are for outreach (work), so that many would be saved.

The 7th day God rested and so may you, don’t forget to keep it Holy.

Yes I know, Sunday is the day of Resurrection and First Fruits,

probably why Paul preferred it for the gathering of the Saints.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Billy Graham has issued a statement defending traditional marriage and Chick-Fil-A. “I want to express my support for my good friends Truett Cathy and his son Dan Cathy, and for their strong stand for the Christian faith,” Graham said. “I’ve known their family for many years and have watched them grow Chick-fil-A into one of the best businesses in America while never compromising their values. Chick-fil-A serves each of its customers with excellence, and treats everyone like a neighbor. It’s easy to see why Chick-fil-A has become so popular across America. Each generation faces different issues and challenges, but our standard must always be measured by God’s word. I appreciate the Cathy family’s public support for God’s definition of marriage.”

BILLY GRAHAM LETTER:    July 24, 2012

Some years ago, my wife, Ruth, was reading the draft of a book I was writing. When she finished a section describing the terrible downward spiral of our nation's moral standards and the idolatry of worshiping false gods such as technology and sex, she startled me by exclaiming, "If God doesn't punish America, He'll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah."

She was probably thinking of a passage in Ezekiel where God tells why He brought those cities to ruin. "Now this was the sin of … Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen" (Ezekiel 16:49-50, NIV).

I wonder what Ruth would think of America if she were alive today. In the years since she made that remark, millions of babies have been aborted and our nation seems largely unconcerned. Self-centered indulgence, pride, and a lack of shame over sin are now emblems of the American lifestyle.

Don't txt while driving
Watch a compelling video on the dangers of txting while driving. This 10-minute documentary, titled "The Last Txt," was produced by AT&T and features stories of real individuals whose lives have been adversely affected by texting behind the wheel. Being able to text and communicate instantly has its advantages, but also can be a dangerous activity. Please take a few minutes to share with your co-workers, family and friends the dangers of txting while driving.
