Men Prepare Sermons; God Prepares Men

2nd Timothy 2:15

BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

April 10

IS THE CHURCH FAILING?

IF THE CHURCH IS FAILING,
WHAT WOULD BE A SIGN OF ITS FAILURE?

IS IT:
THE SIZE OF THE CONGREGATION?  NO!
THE GROWTH OF THE CHURCH?  NO!
HOW MANY ARE BEING SAVED? NO!
FAILING TO BE BIBLICAL? YES!

THE CHURCH CAN ONLY FAIL IF THE CHURCH FAILS TO BE BIBLICAL.

THE CHURCH BELONGS TO JESUS CHRIST,
SO THE ONLY WAY THE CHURCH CAN FAIL IS IF IT FAILS TO TEACH AND TO SUBMIT TO THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD.  

NOTE:  Hearing from you every two or three weeks, would let us know you want to continue receiving our newsletter.

THE BOOK OF REVELATION

The book of Revelation is one of the most powerful books in the Bible.  The Apostle John, who actually saw Jesus crucified, wrote it while he was a prisoner on the Island of Patmos.  Want to see what happens when God lets loose His wrath?  Read this book.  It is scarier than any movie out there.  It will put the fear of God into you.  And here is the real scary part...it's all true and it is really going to happen! (God Loves you, and has given us a way of escape)!

WHY REACH OUT AND MINISTER TO MEN?

  • When a child is reached for Christ, 3.5% of the family will follow.
  • When a mother is reached for Christ, 17% of her family will follow.
  • When a father is reached for Christ, 93% of his family will follow.  (Per the Heritage Foundation)
  • THE LORD S CALLING FAITHFUL MEN TO LEAD THEIR FAMILIES!

AMAZING GRACE, 

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS WORTHY TO BE PRAISED!


THE WITNESS IS THE BIBLE!

YOU BE THE JUDGE!

  2. We had an hour delay leaving Phoenix but we did have a good flight but came home to about 4 inches of snow on the ground and stuck to all the trees and bushes but the roads were bare but wet. And after Az it was cold-only 20 here this morning. Thank you for the prayers.

    Pastor Bill and Kathy,

    Appreciate the statistics about ministering to men that have been in your last 2 up-dates. Hope it is OK if I "borrow" those. ; < )

    Kathy--you cut your hair, looks nice! People can't believe I had hair down to my waist up through University. My first trip to Africa in '81 convinced me it was too hot! Still is!

    Thanks for keeping in touch!

  8. Good morning Pastor Bill

    You may already know that today I got word my dissertation was accepted. However this joyful news that I am thankful for His guidance in completing is muted by the receiving of news thus morning my father, who is undergoing chemo, was admitted to the hospital this morning with serious complications.

    Please hold him in your prayers.

    Blessings
