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!  



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

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! 

***********************************
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; is Powerful enough to save men from their sin, therefore...Trust in Him; John 6:14. “How can they hear without a preacher?” – Romans 10: 13-15.

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

MY SOUL THIRSTS FOR THE LORD


 AH, LORD GOD


WHY PARABLES?




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!"

BREAKFAST AT THE CHURCH - FEBRUARY 16th





Sunday Lunch at Church







************************
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.

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

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 appeals to God through the Name of the Lord Jesus, the Son, 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 (being) 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!

Now Available through Amazon.com.
Click here to order.

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!
