COMMENT FROM AN INTERNET CONTRIBUTOR: "HEY PASTOR BILL, YOU SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE AN AGENDA WHEN YOU PREACH!"  

YOU BET I DO!  (BUT ONLY ONE!) To teach the Truth! To teach that all roads do not lead to Heaven. Only the narrow road, that leads to repentance! Through Obedience to following Jesus Christ as Lord. All other roads lead to hell and destruction (John 8:32).
****************************************************************

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!

*******************************************************
I WANT TO BE IN THAT NUMBER!

THE WITNESSES OF THE OLD AND THE NEW TESTAMENTS

PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS


PRAY: The Church would not give in to the pressure from the world for Spiritual Correctness, (that is, not confronting the make-believer who claims to be believers), yet they continue in their disobedience, as if the Lord has given them a License to Sin! (1 John 2:19). Pray that the Church would be Strong,  yet compassionate in their confrontation.

Pray for: Wayne Beeks, living in Denver dealing with cancer- Wayne is our friend Doug's dad. Doug is with the Arizona Sheriff's Dept. Please keep his whole family in your prayers.

Pray for: Church membership; as membership is the life blood of our church second only to the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. A requirement for a strong continuation into the future.

Pray for:  OUR PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT, as they take their posts, THEY NEED OUR PRAYERS!!  

Pray for: The teaching of; "The Gospel in the Stars". 

Pray for: Sandy & Fred Wilcox, as they are dealing with some health problems.

Pray for:  our son Eric:  During the dental exam an infection was found in an old root canal of a few years ago.  A follow-up appointment has been scheduled for next Friday.  Thank you for your prayers.

Pray for Randy King:  As he travels from Virginia to Nevada and into Arizona as he visits his Mom and Dad and Aunt.

Pray for Carrie's Friend Barb:  As she goes into surgery this week.

Pray for Ric's Sister Sharon:  For a speedy recovery.

Pray for:  Pastor John Whitaker who is recovering from foot surgery. Also, Pastor John has seen the need for additional study, is starting his continuing education.

Pray for:  Our law enforcement officers.

Pray for:  Hope, now 13 who is battling Lyme disease and its side affects.  Good news received this week.  Hope has officially transferred from the public school system back to her Christian School as of Wednesday.  She'll be going every day part time for awhile for about 3 1/2 hours.  A small group of remedial teachers will be working with her to bring her back up to grade level.  She will also attend a couple of general classes with her class to transition back into a classroom setting.  She is seeing progress with her legs by using brain activation and mental therapy.  She is setting major goals for herself and seeing God strengthen her to accomplish them.  Very encouraging and motivating!  Her sleep is slowly improving.  She is still awake much of the night, but seeing a bit of progress with dosing off and on trough those hours.  They are hoping that with the added school routine her body clock with right itself.

Pray that: All who are attending the Community Christian Church, as well as all who have ever attended- The Lord Jesus knows who you are, and He knows your needs. We pray that He will meet your every need. If your need is Salvation, and you have not yet accepted the Lord's invitation to join His family of believers by being born again, I pray that today will be the day you make that decision..

Pray that: all who know Jesus as Lord and Savior would start to live as if they do, and  will be willing to pay the one debt we owe for our Salvation; that is the debt of LOVE (Romans 13:8)! 

Pray: That all men who are called into the pastorate would know the need to study to gain advanced Training into a deeper and broader  understanding of the HolBible (2 Timothy 2:15)

Pray for: Pastor Bill as he teaches God's Word (1 Timothy 2:2). Also that the congregation would encourage him, and continue to love and encourage one another ( John 13:34).

THE PLAN OF SALVATION (NKJV)

 Admit You Are a Sinner in Need of Saving
•James 2:10 “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles on one (point), he has become guilty of all.”

•Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

•Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Accept God’s Love through the/Sacrifice in His Son Jesus
•Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Turn to God in Repentance
•Acts 20:21 “I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.”

Trust the Fullness Jesus Christ!
•Romans 10:9 “…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as  Lord,  and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved;

•Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.”

•Romans 10:14 “How then shall they call on Him Who they have not believed?  And how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard?  And how shall they hear without a preacher?

•Romans 10:17 “So then Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

•Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek Me (God) and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”

It may not be easy to give up your old sinful ways, and turn in faith to Jesus Christ; but it is the only way to  SALVATION,  AND IT IS WORTH IT! 

 CALL UPON (THE FULLNESS OF) THE NAME OF JESUS AND YOU WILL BE SAVED!

  2. Hi PB,
    I took my afternoon to listen to your message. I too have heard much speculation on those two witnesses, I enjoyed listening to your take on that and I can see how our modern technology could most likely be used to spread the pictures to the nations. (a point I had not even considered before)

    It grieves me to see such a falling away of the the older saints who just are being over shadowed with heaviness and the feeling that they cannot be used in this time. Psalm 90 states just the opposite. I appreciate you PB very much.

    ps.... what is with that rooster in the background..... surely you were not at a sunrise service :-) That guy was very opinionated. God's Speed

  3. Just reading this..so do they think the infection in the root canal was causing his health problems? I'll continue to pray for Eric so hopefully he can get some answers soon.
