LEST WE FORGET!!! 

READ THIS!

TO BE CHRISTIANS, WE MUST CONFESS AND AGREE WITH GOD THAT SIN IS SIN! KNOWING THAT GOD HATES SIN! THE SINNER MUST CONFESS, REPENT AND TURN FROM THEIR SINS, TURN TO JESUS AS LORD AND BE SAVED!

WE ARE!

CHRIST CENTERED

                                                   FAMILY FOCUSED

                                                                                                    LIFE CHANGING

Remember: As Christians, we have a New Nature that is Constrained by the Truth of Scripture!

Knowing that; Truth is always Truth, from Eternity past, through Eternity Future.

SO REMEMBER! If it's True, it's NOT NEW- If it's New it's NOT TRUE!

Responsibility of the Senior Pastor

As the Senior Pastor of this church, called by God to oversee His Church in Valley Farms, it is my responsibility from God to seek the meekness of humility in obedience to Him as I care for, His little flock; To be God honoring; Saint loving; Reaching out to the lost; While Teaching His Word Without Compromise.

A POWERFUL TRUTH:
The Word of God is alive and Powerful! When truly heard, this Word is Powerful enough to awaken the spiritually dead.  His Word, when accepted as Truth; will save men from their sin, therefore... “How can they hear without a preacher?” – Romans 10: 13-15.

Should you have any questions, feel free to talk with me.

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! 


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!

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

           ONWARD, CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS!


SALVATION: PROFOUND YET SIMPLE




As a pastor, as a minister called by God, I am to trust Him, to believe Him, to teach His Word; the Bible, in all Meekness, with Humility, yet, Boldly preach that every Word in the Bible is true; not merely only what I may want to be true; but, that every word is true; and teach it without compromise!

"How can they hear without a Preacher!"

The Saga of a Local Church
And Four of Its Members:
Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, & Nobody

Each time there was a job to be done
Everybody was asked to do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

Somebody got angry about that,
Because it was Everybody’s job.

Everybody thought Anybody could do it,
But Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.

Consequently, it wound up that Nobody told Anybody,
So, Everybody blamed Somebody.

PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS

PRAY:  Be in prayer for Doug King regarding his job.

PRAY FOR: All the many who will be returning to Arizona for the Winter Season.

PRAY FOR:  Continue to pray for Todd. 

PRAY FOR:  Keep Ric in your prayers.

PRAY FOR ERIC: Update from our son Eric - Things are ok here. I opted to go on short term disability for a few months. May be extended as it’s taking a while for the steroids to kick in. 

PRAY FOR: The many that are unsaved, in and around Valley Farms including those who are trapped in the ungodly cult of Mormonism. They have turned their backs on the true Jesus, and there-fore are not saved, and are on their way to an Eternity in HELL! 

PRAY FOR:  OUR PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT.  

PRAY THAT: All who claim to  know Jesus as Lord and Savior would start to live as if He is Real in their lives, and  will be willing to pay the one debt we all owe for our Salvation; that is the debt of LOVE to the Lord Jesus (Romans 13:8)! 

PRAY FOR ALL CONCERNED: As Pastor Bill teaches God's Word (1 Timothy 2:2). As he teaches the Truth of God's word, and rebukes all false gospel. Pray that many would respond to the Truth of God's Word in love and truth.

SALVATION: Not only to Eternity in Heaven, but from Eternity in Hell! You MUST, first of all: Humble yourself and 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!

    3. It's been a harsh one up here in cowboy country. Bitter cold- mostly we just did things inside the shelter of the buildings, except for hauling feed out to the stock. I took the time to re-view this church series- VERY GOOD Pastor. Keep them coming.

      It is snowing here! 8 inches and counting!
      I don't believe we will be able to come to AZ again this year. Between Barb's medical challenges and my schedule, it does not look like March will be an option for sunny weather.

      I hope you and Kathy are well.

    12. Hello PB

      It was a busy week with funerals and Dr. Appointments and Thankfully ...
      Prison ministry.

      I am so thankful for the call to separation and from all that is
      unworthy for God's children.

      You are spot on .... Don't let God go on calling ... Answer the call!
      Choose life. Don't procrastinate.

      I had to come to learn that if God called me to it .... He will be with
      me through it.
