THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD!

2 Timothy 4:17-18
But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. Also I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His Heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen!
Do you believe that God is always faithful? Even though we are not faithful, we can never say that God is not faithful. He always is and never fails to be faithful. As the song writer said:
“Great is thy faithfulness.
Great is thy faithfulness.
Morning by morning new mercies l see.
All I have needed thy hands have
provided.
Great is thy faithfulness Lord unto me.”
As the Apostle Paul was nearing the end of his life, when everyone else had forsaken him, Paul knew that the Lord was faithful.
Paul said:
“The Lord stood with me and strengthened me….”
“I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.” i.e. the king of Rome. “ He will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His Heavenly Kingdom.
”Yes, God is faithful. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. God does not change. We may change. We may not be faithful, but God is always faithful. He is faithful in the morning! He is faithful at evening! He is faithful in the night! He never fails. God is the only one of whom it may be said, “He is always…….”
When you and I have finished our race, when we have fought the good fight, when our time of departure is come and we look back over our lives as Paul did, can we say, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith?”
One thing we can say is, “God has been faithful. God has never failed me!” Amen!

JESUS TEACHING ON MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE

posted Feb 28, 2021, 6:05 AM by Sherry Hinson   [ updated Feb 28, 2021, 6:11 AM ]



FROM THE PASTOR'S HEART
“Jesus Teaching on Marriage and Divorce!”
Matthew 19:3-10
The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, “Is
it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?”
And Jesus answered and said unto them, “Have you not read that
He who made them at the beginning made them male and female,
and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother
and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh? So
then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore, what God
has joined together, let not man separate.” They said to Him, “Why
then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and put
her away? He said to them, “Moses, because of the hardness of
your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the
beginning it was not so. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.”
In the Law of God, in Exodus 20:14, the Lord God said, “You
shall not commit adultery.” This Law of God applies to both
men and women. In a day when men have changed the definition
of “marriage” to mean so much other that what God intended, we
must come back to the true teaching of our Lord Jesus on this mat-
ter. God’s first Covenant was made between man and Himself.
Marriage is God’s second institution and covenant for mankind.
Marriage is the “Covenant relationship between One man and One
woman for One lifetime, (i.e. until death separates them.) When
two persons are married they become One in their flesh. They are
no longer Two. God hates divorce. (See Malachi 2:16). Jesus taught
that those who divorce commit Adultery, which God commanded
mankind not to do. Jesus straightened out the religious leaders of
Israel when they tried to make excuses for divorce. Jesus said,
“Whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and
marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is
divorced commits adultery.” Jesus said, “From the beginning it was
not so!” (i.e. permitted by God.) “Therefore what God has joined
together, let not man separate!


“On Being Light in Darkness!”

posted Jan 20, 2021, 1:33 PM by Sherry Hinson



Matthew 5:14-16
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be
hidden. “Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, that it gives light to all who are in the house.”
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good
works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
All those who have been born of God from above have changed
from a life of darkness unto a life of light. Speaking of those who are saved Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.” Paul writes to the believers in Ephesus contrasting the life of darkness and light.
Ephesians 5:8-14
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes
manifest is light. Therefore, He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.”
We were once blind and dead in our trespasses and sin. Satan
had blinded our eyes as he has blinded the eyes of most of the
world, but now we see through the Spirit of the living God those
things of the Light. Let us walk in the Spirit so that the light of the
world, Jesus Christ, can shine through us. Let the unfruitful works
of darkness be exposed by our light so it will be made known what
is good and what is evil and so all may know that you are in the
Light. After all, “You tell a tree by the fruit it bears. If the tree is
good, then the fruit is good. If the tree bad, then the fruit is bad.”
Men can tell the kind of trees we are by the fruit we bear!! They
know if we are “darkness” or “light.” Let us find out from the Word
of God what is acceptable to God and then live in the Light of God.

“A New Beginning for All!”
Romans 5:6-9
For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for
the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet
perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God
demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still
sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been
justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
Have you ever heard someone say, “I wish I could go back and
start again,” or “I wish I could do that all over again so I could do it
differently.” Well, the sad thing is that yesterday is gone and all
that we have done and said is in the past. We cannot change the
past, but we can have a new beginning for 2021. How?
First, for those who are lost and without Christ as Lord and Savior
you can have a new beginning by believing in Jesus, receiving Him as your Lord and Savior and being forgive for all your past sins. He
loved you so much that He died for YOU. “Believe in Jesus, repent
of your sins, and call upon the name of the Lord asking Him to save
you. He will forgive all your sins and give you eternal life by grace
through faith.
If you are a true believer in Christ and yet He seems to be so far
away, guess who moved? It was not Christ, but you. You can have
a new beginning for 2021 through coming back to your Lord, repenting of the sins that have broken your fellowship with Him, and renewing your faith and commitment to Jesus. Remember what John said to us in:
1 John 1:8, 10, 9
“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth
is not in us. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar,
and His word is not in us. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and
just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteous-
ness.”
Here, then, is the place of our “new beginning” in Christ. Here is
our “new beginning” for 2021. We can begin again with Jesus!!

                                                     “THANKSGIVING?”

 

     What do you think of when you think of “Thanksgiving?”  Most of us think about the fact that it is a holiday when we do not have to  work. We are excited about getting together with our friends and

family to share a time of fellowship, fun, food and joy, (i.e. if the

Covid-19 Virus) permits us to do so.  It is that time to go home again

and renew old friendships and make new ones.  We think about the

turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, green beans, breads, puddings

and many other dishes to eat. 

     The Psalmist, King David must have been thinking of all the things he could be thankful for when he penned Psalm 103.  In this Psalm

David could not get over all God’s Mercies to him.  Listen to David’s

Words of “Thanksgiving!”

                        Psalm 103:1-5

                        Bless the LORD, O my soul;

                        And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

                        Bless the LORD, O my soul,

                        And forget not all His benefits:

                        WHO forgives all your iniquities,

                        WHO heals all your diseases,

                        WHO redeems your life from destruction,

                        WHO crowns you with lovingkindness

                        and tender mercies,

                        WHO satisfies your mouth with good things,

                        So that your youth is renewed like the eagles.

     King David was filled with “Thanksgiving” and praise to His God for all His blessings and benefits to him.  It is no wonder that David

also penned Psalm 100:4-5

                       Enter into His gates with THANKSGIVING

                       And into His courts with praise.

                       Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

                       For the LORD is good;

                       His mercy is everlasting,

                       And His truth endures to all generations.

Celebrate Thanksgiving this year in Christ’s Spirit of Gratitude!!

GOD’S JUDGMENT THROUGH THE VIRUS?


Most people today, even Christians and Pastors do not
see, hear, nor understand what is happening in our world
today with this Coronavirus. This is not just a community
event. This is not just a county event. This is not just a
city wide or country event. This is a worldwide Pandemic
of enormous proportions.

This virus is a God thing!!


Deuteronomy 32:39-42
Now see that I, even I, am He, and there is no God
besides Me; I kill and I heal; Nor is there any who can
deliver from My hand. For I raise My hand to heaven,
and say, “As I live forever, if I whet (sharpen) My glit-
tering sword, and My hand takes hold on judgment,
I will render vengeance to My enemies, and repay those
who hate Me. I will make My arrows drunk with blood,
and My sword shall devour flesh, with the blood of the
slain and the captives, from the heads of the leaders of
the enemy.



As God spoke to the people of Israel through Moses in
the Old Testament so He is speaking to us today.
Through the events of this virus, with thousands dying,
no doubt God is crying out to us to “repent” and return
to Him. To those who are lost He cries out, “Believe and
be saved today!” To those who are saved He cries out
“repent” and turn from your sin today. God hates sin!
God hates all kinds of sin and every sin! However, thank
God that He loves the sinner who will “repent” and turn
and believe now!

Do you and I hear what God is saying?
Is the God of heaven speaking to you through this virus?

FROM THE PASTOR'S HEART

Philippians 4:8-9- Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.”

What’s on your mind? What are you thinking about? What are you meditating on? When the Apostle Paul wrote his letter to the Church at Philippi he encouraged them by admonishing them to “be anxious for nothing”, but Paul went further by sharing with them concerning things they should be thinking about.
If we are to have the peace of God our minds must be on the right things! “Bringing every thought into captivity to obedience of Christ.”(2 Corinthians 10:5).

Therefore, MEDITATE ON THESE THINGS!!

NO WAY OUT! -- Or is there?

FROM OUR YOUTH PAGE.....

Sometimes we let our surrounding circumstances get the best of us. We feel as though there is no end to a bad situation. We have no way out!
Yet, through all of these things, we can rejoice in the Lord. He is our WAY!

The devil has come to steal, kill and destroy. God has come to set us free of fear, to give us a joyful satisfying life.
The joy of the Lord is our strength.

Dear youth,
We want you each to keep this close to you heart and mind.-- God is always in control. He gives you what you need. -- 
HE IS YOUR "WAY MAKER"!
