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!

Don't Be a Doubting Thomas
Written by Dr. D. Wayne Beeks, Blue Line Ministry - Edited by: Dr. W. Perry

"Don't be a doubting Thomas."  I'm sure many of us heard that from our parents, and others while growing up.  Like many of the common sayings we use today in our daily conversations, this saying can trace its origins to the Bible.

Thomas, also called Didymus, was a real person, and one of Jesus's twelve disciples.  When several of the disciples told Thomas, they had seen the resurrected Jesus (John 20:25), "We have seen the Lord,"  Thomas responded with doubt.  Thomas told them, "Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe."

Eight days later when Thomas was together with the other disciples, Jesus came to them and stood in their midst.  Jesus spoke to Thomas, (John 20:27) "Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side.  Do not be unbelieving, but believing."  Thomas responded to Jesus by saying, "My Lord and my God."  Jesus then said to Thomas, (John 20:29), "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed.  Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."

It is certain since Thomas had doubt, Thomas also had belief in Jesus Christ.  Thomas doubted the resurrection of Jesus Christ because he had not physically seen the resurrected Jesus Christ, along with his injuries incurred during crucifixion.  His faith was lacking in what he had been told by the other kisciples and hadn't seen for himself.

The definition of doubt is to be uncertain of things, or of your ability, or of the ability of another.  It's a negative feeling for the outcome of something, or of some event.  In contrast, the definition of faith is almost the direct opposite.  Faith is to have the complete trust, belief, or confidence in someone or something in absence of tangible proof.  The presence of doubt is the enemy of faith and is a tool of Satan to undermine and destroy your faith in God.

A friend of doubt is ignorance.  Ignorance means the lack of knowledge or information and through ignorance the vines of doubt will grow and spread throughout your life.  Together, doubt and ignorance are enemies to all areas of your life, including your spiritual life and your relationship with God.  While ignorance is the friend of doubt, truth is the enemy of doubt.  Jesus said we are to have childlike faith; to be humble and teachable, and as a child to ask questions in search of truth, to learn what you don't know and to believe.  Growing in truth and faith through reading and learning of the World of God, you will remove the negative presence, power, and influence of doubt in your life; "the truth shall set you free." 

(John 8:31-32), "Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, 'if you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

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!

HOW SWEET TO TRUST HIM



THE SEVEN BOWLS OF WRATH


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

PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS

Pray:  Benjamin Brosious, grandson of Phyllis, was hit by a car while on a bicycle.  Insurance is questionable.  Please be in prayer for Benjamin and his family.

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: 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.

    SALVATIONNot only to Eternity in Heaven, but From Eternity in Hell! You MUST, first of all; Admit You Are a Sinner in Need of a Savior:

    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!

      I got all the way through the Pastor's corner before I realized it was written by D.Wayne Beeks- good job Mr. Beeks.

    14. Hello PB,
      It is hard to believe that this government will become even more corrupt - I feel as if we are watching a nation implode before our eyes.
      Young people going to school are being indoctrinated in corrupt teachings and philosophy - Colossians 2:8... even in schools preparing men and women for ministry.

      May God use us to turn back people from jumping into hell - Amen.
