HAPPY THANKSGIVING THIS THURSDAY!

Thanksgiving

May we thank the Lord every moment of every day for his bountiful blessings.

****************************************************************************************************************************

 

Here is a news flash from our friends, Tim and Jeannette Joyner,  who are missionaries in Entebbe, Uganda working with Open Door Baptist Missions.

100_8245AB

They state, “We were grieved to hear of the 28 executed by Al Shabaab in Mandera, Kenya this weekend. The bus was hijacked and they were asked to recite the Islamic prayer “shaada” All that were killed were non-muslims, made to lie down in a row and shot in the back of the head.”

 

Needless to say, Kathy and I are very concerned to learn, first hand, that these atrocities are taking place. We should ALL be in prayer regarding, not only the happenings in Kenya, for our missionaries around the world, but also, for our safety and security here in the USA, where our borders go unprotected. We are reminded in, (Psalms 127:1 NKJV) “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vane who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city (or our borders), the watch-man stays awake in vane.”

*************************************************************************************

The Sabbath is past, Sunday is here;

Jesus is Lord

 


To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” — John 8:31-32

 

Sometimes, even though we know better, we lock ourselves in a room with fear, doubt and anxiety as they become our depressing companions.  We know it’s not right but at times we would rather dwell with such unholy company as this than we would with such pleasant companions as faith, hope and love.  I know we do, we all do.

 

I recall just a few days ago, looking outside my window, seeing a blue funk instead of remembering the rainbow of God’s promises.  I was in a behaving badly mode!

 

We can all get there, somewhat like the disciples of Jesus after his death.  They were so overcome with discouragement that they forgot all about the many times that Jesus had told them that he would arise from the dead.  Jesus was not a part of their crisis, nor was He of mine, and no doubt, not yours either.  When we are tempted to get into this down cast mode, how much like these disciples we are at times.  I say “we” because we’ve all been there, and this can affect any one of us.  We can get down because of the present circumstances of our daily life, or we can let our stinking thinking get in the way of our looking up, and into the promises of the one who has promised better days in the future for each one of us who put our trust in Him.  It is shame on us when we refuse to receive His offer.

 

The Bible offers us this truth in the Epistle of First John 1:5, “This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light: And in him there is no darkness at all.”  And no matter how often we pave over the weeds of our life, mow them down or douse them with weed killer, they just keep sprouting back up, they just keep seeking the light.  And you know, God has designed our human souls to be like that.  You can break them, crush them, bury them under vast structures of state oppression, social custom, fear, superstition and ignorance.  Still, though many still love darkness, because the eyes of their souls can become accustomed to the dark, and now as the light breaks through, it hurts their eyes.  They love the darkness, but they seek the light. Isn’t that strange?

We have all struggled between this darkness and light, even within ourselves, and we have seen it played out all around us.  In the gospel of Matthew, in Chapter 28:20, Matthew records Jesus as saying, “I am with you always, to the very end of age.” 

 

Sunday is here, it is the beginning of a new week, the Sabbath of sorrows is past. The darkness of despair is gone.  It’s the dawn of a New Day, a day of hope. The Lord is seated at the right hand of the Father.  The first day of the week, like the beauty of the longed-for first flower of spring has now come.  Sunday has come!  Friday is finished!  The Son, in all his splendor, has risen, the Bible says, “With healing in his wings.”  We can throw away our spices, reserved for things that are dead. And we can worry no more about a stone that is too heavy to be rolled away!  Go ahead, enter and see for yourself! The tomb is empty! Jesus has risen! How can we not be joyful in knowing that.

 

“Jesus is seated at the Father’s right hand. He’s alive and I’m forgiven! Heaven’s gates are open wide!”  Unlock the doors, because they can’t keep him out anyway. Make way for the King!  Receive his message of salvation, peace and love. Experience the joy and peace that passes all understanding.  Our hearts should be “burning within.”  We should say as Thomas confessed, “My Lord and My God.”

 

Amen’

*******************************************************************************************************************************************

“What Is It Like to Be a Christian?

A woman was asked by a coworker, 'What is it like to be a Christian?'

 

The coworker replied, "It is like being a pumpkin.  God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.  Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.

 

"He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed.  Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see."

************************************************************************************************************************************

Tough times never last, tough people do.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

YOUR FIRST CHRISTMAS  CARD FOR 2014

 

T'was 2 months before Christmas


When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying

Nor taking a stand.

 

Why the PC Police had taken away

The reason for Christmas


no one could say.


 

The children were told


by their schools not to sing


About

Shepherds & Wise Men & Angels & things

It might hurt people's feelings,

the teachers would say

December 25th is just a 'Holiday'  !!

 

Yet the shoppers were ready


with cash, checks and  credit


Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!

CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod

Something was changing, something quite odd!

 

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa

In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

As 'Targets'

were hanging their trees upside down

At Lowe's the word Christmas - was nowhere to be  found.


At K-Mart & Staples & Penny's & Sears

You won't  hear the word Christmas;


it won't touch your ears.


 

Inclusive, sensitive and

Di-ver-is-ty

Are words that were used to intimidate me.

 

Now   Daschle, Now   Darden,


Now   Sharpton,  Wolf Blitzen


On   Boxer,    on   Rather,


on   Kerry,    on   Clinton !


 

At the top of the Senate,


there arose such a clatter


To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

 

And we spoke not a word,


as they took away our faith


Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace

 

The true Gift of Christmas


was exchanged and discarded

The reason for the season

stopped before it started.


 

So as you celebrate


'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'


  Sipping your Starbucks,


LISTEN TO ME ! ! !


 

Choose your words carefully,


choose what you say


 

Shout


 

MERRY CHRISTMAS,


 

not Happy Holiday !

 

Please

all Christians

Join together & wish everyone you meet


 

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Christ is The Reason


for the Christ-mas Season!
