COOLIDGE EXAMINER SURVEY LAST WEEK.

QUESTION: Do you believe that city council meetings should include an opening prayer?

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Coolidge Examiner (News Paper)

A: Yes — 29.4%

B:  No  — 70.3% ******* Note!

This survey taken by the local Coolidge residents, I must admit took me by surprise. I would have believed more of Coolidge’s residents were Christian. But the answers shown in the survey results indicate more than 70% of the voting residents apparently do not believe that Jesus Christ hears and answers the prayers of His children (His followers). I continue to pray for our community, Lord Help Us!

September 20


TODAY, BONDS ARE TORN ASUNDER! AMEN’

 

WE CONTINUE TO LIFT  MICHELE; ASHLEY; MARILYN; OTHERS! up before the LORD.

 

We have been praying for the Molette family this week, as Carole Mollette lost her father this week due to a heart attack, on his way, taking her mother for a Dr’s visit.

I now share this thought provoking word from Carole’s husband and President of Newburgh Seminary and College of the Bible, Dr. Glenn Mollette. “Thank you for your prayers.”


…New Exit Polls Reveal - 100% Death Rate…


GlennCaroleMolletteBy Dr. Glenn Mollette

Exit polls are conclusive. 100% of us will die. The way we die will vary somewhat, but die we will. Many people in the world will never vote, own a new house, drive a new car or eat in a nice restaurant. We all will experience death.

My father-in-law passed suddenly last week. On a routine Thursday morning he was taking my mother-in-law for a typical medical appointment and apparently had a heart attack while behind the wheel. He managed to pull off to the side of the road before he gasped and left the world with his wife in the passenger seat. The trauma of receiving a call from a stranger stating he was not responsive nor could a heart beat be found was very unexpected. He essentially did most of the same stuff we all did and we often estimated he had another twenty years. Again, it was proven there are never any guarantees when it comes to additional time on this planet.

I don't know how we totally prepare for death. Being at peace with God and man would be at the forefront. This is surely a day by day activity because we all have days where we certainly are not pleasing our creator 100%. We go through life fretting, miffed at people, thinking bad thoughts and sometimes even doing the wrong things. We fall out with people or people fall out with us and often these relationships only go further south and they are never repaired before death. As hard as it is to believe, nobody ever had a bad thing to say about my father-in-law. He never had anything bad to say about anybody. I asked one of the clerks at a small store in town if we could think of anything bad about him and we both agreed it would be impossible. I realize no one is perfect but it's nice when everyone speaks so highly of you. They didn't even do that about Jesus.

You also need to either pay for your funeral costs before you die, have insurance or have some cash set aside for your family. A moderate funeral including grave, marker, casket, etc could easily cost you $15,000. I said moderate. I suspect you could easily bump this up to $18,000 and of course you can always go higher or more extravagant.  I am also including the cost of placing an obituary in our regional paper. Can you believe it cost our family over $600 for an obituary???!!! This was one newspaper! No, newspapers do not run obituaries for free! There are all kinds of little hidden expenses when it comes to funerals. Be forewarned my friend and be prepared. Last weekend, a young couple we know lost two parents due to a motorcycle crash. I can only imagine the costs. I must hasten to say that the same funeral home who took care of my father-in-law also had two children from a family lost in a fire in our county.  We were told the funeral home was taking care of all the costs.

I realize there are lots of things to write about today. I could be writing about the big Republican debate and those candidates who are politically dying before our eyes. Most of them are trying to suck in a few more breathes of oxygen before they finally expire into political has-beens. However, after grieving with family and loved ones at the funeral home and graveside for the entire weekend I just couldn't really think of anything that seemed more important. 

Please give some thought about being prepared for exiting this life.

"It is appointed unto man once to die," Hebrews 9:27

Jesus is the only way. I am the way, the truth and the life.   John 14:6

If you are not saved turn from sin and open your life to Jesus. You don't have to beg him to save you. He will save you if you will sincerely call upon him.

"Romans 10:13 Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

POINTS WE NEED TO PONDER!

Is The Church Becoming Only a Convenience?

 

One of the great tragedies of our day is that the church is no longer relevant with most Americans. Even those who consider themselves believers, church is becoming much more of a convenience than a conviction.

 

To a large extent it has become a social club where people gather with friends for a time of socializing, rather than a place of Bible study and Worship. With many it is little more than an entertainment center, where they can tap their feet to the beat of the drummer.

 

To others it's simply a place for weddings and funerals and special days for children. And to a large extent it's being supported by fish fries, bean suppers, coffee & donuts, and rummage sales, or what ever loose change someone may have in their pocket on Sunday morning.

 

Some people only go to church on special Holy days such as Easter and Christmas and even then rarely consider the worth of the church enough to put anything in the offering plate to help support it.

 

And the hypocrisy of it all is this! We complain to high heaven that the Supreme Court has taken prayer and Bible reading out of public schools and government buildings, changed the meaning of marriage and family, yet many who complain allow dust to accumulate on their own Bibles and rarely ever get down on their knees humbling themselves in prayer before God.

 

Here at The Community Christian Church, we offer church service at 9:30 AM, teaching God’s Word without compromise to all who will attend. We also offer Christian Counseling and Bible study   EVERYONE is welcome.

 

Many today moan and groan about the direction of our country and yet for some unimaginable reason we fail to see any correlation between the irrelevancy of the Church and the immorality of society.

 

In essence, the church, as salt, has all but lost its savor and our light is little more than a flicker. I'm afraid a lot of our convenience worshippers are in for a sad and rude awakening, with-in two seconds after they breathe their last breath, SORRY, BY THEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE! (ISAIAH 55:6)

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Read and Weep For Our Lord’s Church!

 

HERE IS A SCENARIO TAKING PLACE IN THE NEAR FUTURE. I Pray this scenario will NEVER be played out! But I’m afraid it’s on it’s way, and even now, it may already be here.

Sometime in the near future: - A Church Service PASTOR: "Will everyone please turn on their tablet, PC, iPad, smart phone, and Kindle Bibles to 1 Corinthians 13:13. And please switch on your Bluetooth to download the sermon."

P-a-u-s-e...... "Now, Let us pray committing this week into God's hands. Open your Apps, BBM, Twitter and Facebook, and chat with God"

 

S-i-l-e-n-c-e

 

"As we take our Sunday tithes and offerings, please have your credit and debit cards ready. You can log on to the church Wi-Fi using the password 'Lord909887. The ushers will circulate mobile card swipe machines among the worshipers:

 

A. Those who prefer to make electronic fund transfers are directed to computers and laptops at the rear of the church.

B. Those who prefer to use iPads can open them.

C. Those who prefer telephone banking, take out your cell phones to transfer your contributions to the church account."

 

The unholy atmosphere of the Church becomes truly electrified as ALL the smart phones, iPads, PCs and laptops beep, blink and flicker!

 

Final Blessing and Closing Announcements.

A. This week's ministry cell meetings will be held on the various Facebook group pages where the usual group chatting takes place. Please log in and don't miss out.

B. Thursday's Bible study will be held live on Skype at 1900hrs GMT. Please don't miss out.

C. You can follow your Pastor on Twitter this weekend for counseling and prayers. God bless and have a nice day.

The entire service took 14.00765 minutes. And JESUS WEPT…..

 

My Prayer: I pray the Rapture takes place BEFORE THIS BECOMES MORE OF A REALITY THAN IT IS; but never-the-less, Unless I am directed otherwise by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, I will continue on in the Old fashioned way!
