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!

PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS

Pray & Praise for 14 year old Hope:  Thank you for your prayers for Hope!!  God is answering!  Last week Hope we received the following praises!  She is doing GREAT with her walking!  What a THRILL to watch her!  She is working hard and is VERY motivated!  She is starting some pool therapy this week to help loosen and strengthen her ankles, feet, and overall range of motion.  She is able to go up and down stairs now.  She is making great progress and loves being back with all her friends at school.  She is doing well academically, also.  Her parents are so thankful for all those who are helping to make this possible!  Their hearts are overflowing with thankfulness to the Lord for the great work that He is doing in her life!

Pray for: The many in and around Valley Farms who do not know the Lord as their Lord and Savior,

Pray for: Our son Eric, The medical tests have turned up nothing, and his condition has not changed He is going to contact another doctor to see what he can find out.

Pray for: The many in our families and in our community who are caught up in the cult of MormonismPray their eyes would be opened to the truth of the True Christ. That Christians would see the area in and around Valley Farms as a wide open MISSION FIELD.

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: Carol Adams who is going through some trying times!

Pray for: Carol's son Josh.

Pray for:  OUR PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT,  THEY NEED OUR PRAYERS!!  

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).

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!

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

  1. Yes, my friend, it is nice to hear from someone who has been to Bethany, and made the trip over that hill you speak of. So it is nice to hear from the Lord Jesus Himself about Heaven and the Father- He has been over the hill,He has been there, done that as we like to say today. Why ask anyone else. Thanks for sharing.

    Good message! I can only dream of the land of Israel, and would love to go there, and to be honest I'm concerned a little even if I could afford to make the trip. Loved your pictures you draw from the Bible.

  3. Good Word PB,
    I never heard it said that Mary entered into Jesus death through the anointing of that perfume. May we open the box and let it out! And the fact that we will always have the poor to minister to..... so true that we should not miss out on our time to sit at Jesus feet and learn (church) You are very right on with too many blind eyes and hard hearts today.... not to mention blinded minds
    Thank You PB for reminding me that we will be judged by how we respond to the word of God! May it always be with obedience instead of rebellion.
    Stay well my Friend and God's very Best to You and Kathy.

    We are praying for your son and others... for answers and healing and joy.
