IS THERE A BIBLICAL PRESCRIPTION TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? YES! ONE AND ONLY ONE. IT'S FOUND IN 2nd CHRONICLES 7:14; "IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND." 

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


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 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 FOR: Both Ric and Frankie, they both fell, and are in need of our prayer.

PRAISE FOR:  Mike, Tim's brother.  Thank you so very much for praying!!!  Mike is doing remarkably well after his liver transplant!  He is actually up and walking around with assistance.  The risk of infection is still there and then they have to get him on the right dose of anti-rejection drugs.  All of this has to be worked around his diabetes.  We are so thankful for technology!  None of the wonderful means of communication that we have today were available when we first came to the mission field.  Tim was able to talk with his brother on Monday before the surgery and then immediately after he came out -- of course he doesn't remember that -- then several times again since.  Mike has to stay near the hospital for about a month after he is released so they can monitor his meds and condition.  That is when he will need Tim's assistance to get back and forth to the hospital so that Joan can have a break and also resume work. 

PRAY FOR: Valerie Martinez, as she fell hurting herself , she is in need of our prayers, .

PRAY FOR: George Martinez, Valerie's husband as he takes on this extra duty.

PRAY FOR: The many people affected by the many Storms affecting the Gulf Coast. 

PRAY FOR: Wisdom for our President and his joint chiefs as they consider North Korea and their NUCLEAR threat!
.
PRAISE THE LORD: For the sure PRESCRIPTION for fixing any discouragement is The Lord Jesus, as He acts through our friends and loved ones-Thank you Lord for your love.
  
PRAY FOR CHUM:   Chum has good days and real bad days.  We are fighting with our insurance to get him his pet scan, they denied it.  Not sure how that is possible, but that's how things are in our crazy world.  The doctor is fighting it so hoping to get it to go through.  Chum has been feeling pretty good the past couple of days, but right after Chemo he gets worse every time it's done.  Thank God  he is getting some nutrition now.  We continue to pray, and thank you for your prayers.  We appreciate everyone's prayers.  We all have been busy trying to keep up, not just me, the kids all try to do their part, too.  We will all get through it, just some days are harder than others.  My diabetes went out of control, probably due to stress, so I'm on insulin now, but that too, we will get through.  We love you very much and look forward to your e-mails, been so crazy at times that I forget to respond, but know that I love you.

PRAY FOR: The many in Arizona, in and around Valley Farms who are trapped in the ungodly cult of Mormonism and have turned their back on the true Jesus, and there-fore are not saved, and are on their way to HELL!

PRAY FOR ERIC: As He is going through some form of depression I thank everyone for their prayers.

PRAY FOR: The True  Church of Jesus Christ (NOT THE MORMONS) TO NOT give in to the pressure from the world for Spiritual Correctness, ( that we would confront the make-believer who claims to be believers with the true Gospel of Jesus Christ). The Lord has not given a License to Sin! 

PRAY FOR:  OUR PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT,  THEY NEED THE LORD'S HELP!!  

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 see 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).

PRAY FORThe Community Christian Church's' 20 years of service  to Teaching God's Word Without Compromise coming up in November 2017

    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!

    7. Hello PB

      In Christ, I love each ND day as well. This like each season has its beauty.
      I find the greatest joy in serving others as I serve the Lord. I know the splendor of heaven awaits us but I long to help others learn of the love of God that gives life to whosoever will.

      So many have a distorted view of Him - either all right hand and no left or all left hand and no right - But He has the perfect balance of that love that puts hope in us and correction that turns us back unto Himself.
      As I seek a word from The Lord to bring to others, I always find I get fed the most as I am feeding His flock.

      Do you have that same joy? I do not know why The Lord has been so merciful to me but I am thankful.

      I continue to lift you before the Lord for your health.
