THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

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." 

THE ANSWER IS: TURN BACK TO THE LORD GOD-TO FAITH-FAMILY! 

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

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!

HE WALKS WITH ME AND TALKS WITH ME



GOD IS SOVEREIGN--IT'S HIS CHOICE


As a pastor, as a minister of God, I am required by Him to believe, to teach, to preach that every Word in the Bible is true, not just what I may want to be true; but every word; without compromise!

PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS

PRAY/PRAISE FOR CHUM:  Chum has been doing okay.  He will get a chest x-ray next week to follow-up on the lung cancer.  They will follow-up with x-rays for the next few months, then he will have a CT Scan of the chest and MRI of the brain in another couple of months.  Right now he is stable.  Still trying to get his strength back from the chemo, etc., but he's doing ok.  Thank God.

PRAY Michele was doing great, but now she just found out that the cancer has spread to the other side of the brain.  She will be going in for full brain radiation.  She's already had five brain surgeries.  So she needs more prayers.  We haven't stopped praying, but now she needs extra prayer.


PRAY FOR: Eric for his work situation.  His eyes are getting better, but his ears are getting worse.  Please continue to pray. 

PRAY: We would keep the pulpit of the Community Christian Church Sacred and free from the Profane.

PRAY FOR: Pastor Bill and the Leadership team of the Community Christian Church of Valley Farms to maintain a Separation between the Profane ( the Secular) and the Pure (the Spiritual) ; between the Holy and the Unholy; protecting the Sanctity and Purity of the Pulpit as the place where the TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD is PROCLAIMED! 

PRAY FOR: The ones in our church who are caught up in the sin of alcohol   (drinking),  and   tobacco (smoking), that they would be released from Satan's snare.

PRAY/ PRAISE: For Assistant Pastor Todd, as he continues with his studies into the Master's of Divinity program at Seminary. Give him wisdom Lord!

PRAY: For Fred, as he prepare for graduation in June, with a BS degree in the Pastoral Leadership program at Seminary. Also as he prepares for Ordination, That the Lord will Solidify his calling into Your service. 

PRAY FOR: Wisdom for our President and his joint chiefs as they consider North Korea and their NUCLEAR threat!

PRAISE THE LORD: For the His sure PRESCRIPTION for fixing any discouragement. It is The Lord Jesus, as He acts through our friends and loved ones-Thank you Lord for your love.

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: 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 LORD JESUS CHRIST & 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 FOR: Our Church to continue in our Teaching God's Word Without Compromise.

    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!

    Pastor’s 

    Corner

    The Strength of True Love


    John 13:34 “A new command I give you:  Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

    Some years ago while I was pastoring a small church in upstate New York a young woman in the congregation was diagnosed with breast cancer, quite severe, and her doctor felt no choice but to do a complete mastectomy.  On the day after the surgery, she awoke and what she saw in her mirror was unsettling, and was a blow to her self-esteem that was deep and profound.  To compound her upset of dealing with the loss of her breast, she saw in her mirror how her hair was matted and her face swollen from her reaction to the antibiotics.  

    One day during her hospital stay, her young husband came into the room, at this time she burst into tears.  As he tried to console her with a kiss  to her forehead, she pulled back and said “how can you stand to look at me.” “Look at what I look like,” she moaned through her sobs.

    Immediately he left the room and was gone for about 15 minutes.  He returned with a cart of shampoo, creams, and lotions.  He picked her up in his arms, carried her to the sink, and sat her down on his lap.  Then leaning her head back over the sink, he washed her hair.  He used a comb and combed out her hair.  He then used a hair dryer and blew it dry.  Then, carefully, he applied her makeup the best he could.

    She looked at herself in the same mirror that had earlier sent her into convulsions of vanity, and saw someone she recognized; herself.  She was back again.  All because her husband had loved her well through those crucial moments when her world had been crumbling around her.   

    Today, even though this woman’s experience with breast cancer qualifies as perhaps the lowest point in her life, one of her favorite moments from all of her marriage has become those few precious moments in her hospital room when her husban and loved her in a way any woman would have understood.

    1 Peter 3:7 “Husbands in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives………...”

    These  books are available at online through  Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.com, also check at your local book store.

    Look for Pastor Bill's latest book 
    Coming out in Early April 2018.

    Dr. William Perry is a prolific writer of outstanding books. His titles for Newburgh Press thus far are Christians Helping Christians, Christian Counseling for the 21st Century and Theology for the 21st Century. Each book is a must for every reader of solid Christian material.

    I am happy to endorse Dr. Perry’s latest treasure, “A Journey Through The Gospels.” Every student and preacher/teacher of the Bible needs this book for the desk or the bedside table. You will enjoy reading insights and valuable lessons that many casual readers of the Bible will miss.

    While this book is not lengthy you will find a delightful study of each gospel that will make you appreciate the wonderful gospel stories and love Jesus even more.
    To God be the glory!

    2. Hi PB - got it on God Tube.
      I am so thankful God cannot lie. That confirms our hope as well. Numbers 23:19. God is Justice and I am one who is blessed through His Truth. Prov 21:30.

      Thank You for the Word.

      Brother Bill and Kathy,

      Reading through your prayer requests again and noticed that Michele’s cancer is spreading. Am I correct in recalling that she is your daughter or a relative???

      Our MK friend with brain cancer just got a Doctors report last week from Moffat in Tampa—there is nothing more they can do. She’s above average on the life expectancy for this type of cancer—18 months, but it’s not one that can be beat. She was able to walk out of the clinic which is really nothing short of a miracle! She was using a device known as “Optune”—18 hours a day, sends electrical waves through the brain in an effort to destroy cancer cells. Her battle has put her focus on the LORD and she just desires that He would be glorified in her life.

      For me—I know a little better how to pray for those in this battle as our friend has shared her requests.

      Will be praying.

    5. Whoa! I didn't think it snowed that far south! We are really more than ready for Spring. Another good message Pastor. You make the Bible so clear- It's like reading a book.
      Bless you all!

    6. Thanks, my cold seems to be working it’s way through. We got about 4 inches of snow. A lot of areas got a bit more. Very heavy snow. March has been the storm before the calm the last few years. Spring, at least in name, is right around the corner. Hoping it will melt by the weekend. I’ve had enough with the shoveling for a while.
