“Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.”

Ecclesiastes 11:1 KJV/Amplified

  • Don’t hold back.
  • Let go of the “good stuff.”
  • Never calculate giving as a loss.
  • Give your very best.
  • Don’t even give it another thought.
  • Happily and spontaneously, “Make someone else’s day.”
  • When you least expect it, your giving comes back to you again.

[Then Peter said:] “Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have, give I to thee…

In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”  Acts 3:6 KJV

Food for thought: Mark 4:24 and Matthew 7:2

Underground

9 06 2013

The authentic Church of the Lord Jesus has gone underground.

House Church Group

 

That may sound like a provocative statement, but let’s look at the evidence: Jesus taught and did miracles from house-to-house, town-to-town and within the local community Temple (a.k.a. Synagogue). News of His healings and provisional (food) miracles drew thousands that gathered, but His main ministry was person-to-person and house-to-house. His is the ministry of the Spirit and power of God (direct) to those perishing in body, soul and spirit.

Jesus constantly taught that loving, merciful ministration to fellow human beings is what He and Father-God desired in the earth. In fact, He came to set the captives Free! Free from religious dogma and divisions. The twelve Apostles received the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room just as Jesus had prophesied that they would. In the power of the Holy Spirit, they set out. What they built upon the foundation of Christ’s cross is still “turning the world upside down.”

 

Is the Church today ineffective?

What few consider is that Satan is and always has been an enemy to all humanity; a “Pretender-to-the-Throne” that is only inhabited by our Lord Jesus, the Christ. In these last days before the coming of the Lord to reap His own; Satan has declared all out war on the Church.

Satan: The Prince of the power of the air

War? How do we fight back?

In the book of Revelation 2:13, Jesus declares to us that He is fully aware that Satan is sitting in the “Highest seat” within His Church and that there will be a “Great falling away” of Believer’s [First Thessalonians 2:1-3]. The good news is that our Lord did not leave us as orphans, but has provided grace and strength to us and gathers us through His Holy Spirit, to lead, guide and direct us into all *righteousness (*moral perfection; deception-free living). John 14:18

Among the leadership and those who follow them in many North American institutions (so-called churches) today there is more: Confusion; Hierarchical power-grabbing; Back-biting gossiping; Moral perversion; Greed/Wealth-focused excess; Socio/Political-Racial-Economic-Gender-based Divisions and Emotional manipulation than among a den of thieves.

There used to be great sadness connected to this statement having witnessed firsthand (coast-to-coast) these awful displays within what was reported to be the Lord’s House. However, in checking the Prophetic word throughout the Holy Bible; it is understood that “these things need be,” thereby fulfilling prophecy.

Wounded? Our prayer is for those who at one time have been wounded through these “Synagogues of Satan” masquerading as the Church; is to hold on and know that the real, or authentic church of our Lord is not gone or ‘taken over,’ but alive, well and living within each heart that receives Jesus as Lord and Savior. Wherever two or more are gathered together in His name; there He (still) is in the midst of us.

Now What?

  •  Let us gather together family, neighbors, friends, children and strangers.
  • Call upon the Lord Jesus; read; study His word (Holy Bible); pray; praise; sing to the Lord.
  • Worship the Lord.
  • Heed (hear and do) the leading of the Holy Spirit.
  • Operate (work, be active, share) in your Gifting(s) and be at peace with all men (people).

Above all: Love one another. Let us be wise in the knowledge of His love for us as we see the time approaching of our Lord’s soon return.

 

Gathered in His name...

Gathered in His name…

 

Lesson Study Guide: John 3:7-8; [Acts 2:17/Joel 2:28/Isaiah 44:3]; 2nd Timothy 4:3; Also, Isaiah 40:31.  We also highly recommend reading the Book of Revelation; you could simply start with just the ‘red’ words of Jesus: It is more current and accurate than any News Media outlet found today.

Be Blessed!

And So It Goes (In Memorium)

We send our love to his beautiful wife, lovely daughter, many family and friends all over the world (especially his ministry partners in El Salvador).

Believers Who Have Died

13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of humanity, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

And so, as we see the time approaching of the coming of our Lord, we continue our labor of love in the earth with “Pastor Bill” as our very good example.

Be Blessed!

What Are You Waiting for? Get Going!

Now I Lay me down to sleep...”

How many human beings would love the luxury of a good nights sleep, but cannot due to: The ravages of sickness and disease; perhaps sleepless nights keeping watch in the midst of their war-torn communities; or as traumatized victims of weather and climatic upheavals rendering them homeless.

“… I pray the Lord my soul to keep…”

Wallace in 1975, three years after he was paralyzed in an assassination attempt. In his later years, Wallace reached out to civil rights activists and black churches to ask forgiveness.

Not widely reported outside of his home state, but Governor George Wallace; the radically racist Governor of Alabama (circa 1960’s); repented and spent his last days in philanthropic endeavors inclusive of all-Black Churches whose members came to forgive,  love and accept him as “Just another sinner saved by grace, like the rest of us.”

” If I should die before I wake…”

There are no ‘Do-Over’s

The Psalmist says our lives are as a ‘Vapor’, a mist. We are as delicate and substantive as the morning fog.

We interact with one another in life as members of a grand concert in a huge orchestra.

We take center-stage in our life-solo as the Director and lead performer until we bow out.

Be ‘Awake’ to what is truly your important part in this concerto.

Play it for all you’re worth!

“… I pray the Lord my soul to take…”

Be Blessed!

15 things Jesus Didn’t Say:

“For God was so disgusted with the world and you that he gave his one and only Son.”

“I have come to bring you a new religion.”

“By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have correct theology.”

“If anyone would come after me, let him disparage all other religions and their followers.”

“If you love me, you will regularly attend a church of your choice… within reason.”
