Love The Truth

Published February 17, 2018

Greetings and blessing to all of you. Do you realize we are living in an age of deception?” “The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false.” (2Th 2:9-12) That is the natural man. He is deceived. He is blinded by his own wisdom. God spoke about this man in Psalm 14:1 “the […]

Grace, Faith, Works

Published February 10, 2018

Greetings and blessing to all of you. As some of you heard my sister passed on Saturday. Her passing taught me more about the Word of God. A beautiful, sweet, kind and caring person, however, her allegiance was to another god. She served him “ by works” believing with her whole life that if she did “good deeds” that will get her to heaven to continue to serve her god. She was fooled by the same one who fooled Eve in the garden when he said to Eve “did God really say”…planting the seed of rebellion and disobedience. And like […]

“THE CHURH”

Published February 3, 2018

Greetings and blessing to all of you. My heart has been burden for the people called out “the church”. Because we are born as sinners we have from birth developed habits of sin. Even though we are in the sanctification process; some of us are not fully engaged in that process. I realize that we tend to sin out of habit. It is our habit to be selfish. It is our habit to retaliate when others offend us. It is by habit that we indulge the appetites of our bodies and it is habit that we tend to live for […]

Cont. Sanctification

Published January 28, 2018

Greetings and blessing to all of you. Last week I introduced to you the Biblical Doctrine of Sanctification. Recall… when you were “Born-Again” you were set apart for Holiness. In I Peter 1:16 it reads “You must be Holy because I am Holy”. God will help us with this goal. In Phil 1:6 it reads, “He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” This is done by the Holy Spirit. To be filled with the Spirit means to be controlled or influenced by God the Holy Spirit (third person of the […]

Sanctification

Published January 27, 2018

Greetings and blessing to all of you. Last week I spoke about Justification which is a righteousness from God apart from any virtue or work of man. You recall in Galatians 2:16 it reads “yet we know that a man is not justified by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ. ….for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.” This doctrine of justification condemns every person’s effort to justify themselves. Also you recall the passage in Isaiah 64:6 “all of us have become like one who is unclean and all our righteous […]

“IN” What?

Published January 13, 2018

Reflections                                                          January 14, 2018   Greetings and blessing to all of you. In our culture it is one of the “in” things to say is “I am a Christian”. But in 2 Cor. 13:5 God has said “examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.” Is it difficult to examine ourselves when our thoughts are to feel good about whatever we do? Can we confront the sin(s) in our lives so we can “feel bad enough” to have a Godly sorrow that God describes in 2 Cor. 7:10 “Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads […]

Reflections

Published January 6, 2018

Greetings and blessing to all of you. The Pastor’s Corner has a new name “Reflections”. It means to ponder or meditate. We must begin to “ponder” God’s word as Mary did in Luke 2:19. God wants us to change into his likeness. “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son…” Romans 8:29. One way is to begin reflecting on the upcoming “Reflections.” Are we prepared to respond properly to change? It has been said by Pastor Currie “that the reason people do not like change is because a) they did not initiate […]

Pressing Forward Toward The Goal

Published December 30, 2017

Greetings and blessing to all of you. Today is the last day of the year. Tomorrow is a new year. God has told and ask us many things in the Scriptures but the following four may help us to begin the New Year with confidence, strength, joy and wisdom. God says to us in: Phil 3:12-14 “Not that I have already attained or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me…One thing I do forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to […]

Immanuel (God With Us), Merry Christmas

Published December 23, 2017

Greetings and blessing to all of you. Today is Christmas Eve…. tomorrow is the day chosen to celebrate the birth of our Savior. Today we will reflect on what this day mean for us. When I think of what happened when God came in the flesh I am overwhelmed. Isaiah 9:6 is a favorite of mine,” “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” The Son of Man began life […]

Is There Room In Your Inn

Published December 16, 2017

Greetings and blessing to all of you. JOY TO THE WORLD is a favorite song that we will sing today. As we sing this Christmas classic I want you to think about what the words mean. The stanza “let every heart prepare Him room” really resonated in my mind. As you know I do more than bring the message from the Lord on Sunday….. Therefore I have to consciously and deliberately be very much aware…. am I crowding God out??? I have to live an unselfish, “dying to self-daily life” only because in “my world” I have a tendency to […]
