From the pastor’s desk
Oh, give thanks unto the Lord for He has blessed us to come into the second month of 2013. I am thankful to the Lord for what I see in the church as a whole. There seem to be a fire in the hearts of many. The Lord brought us into 2013 and many didn’t say aloud how they were going to change but they just changed for the better. The old saying is “action speaks louder than words” and that is the order of the day. A change is great when it is for the better. It is great to see changes in members for the Lord is moving in their hearts.
The Lord wants His people to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ our Lord. There is always room for growth in the lives of believers. We are to grow from one level of knowledge to another level. A children in school doesn’t stay in the same grade if he does we know something is wrong. The parents will go to the school to see why their child is not passing. They must be concerned for the ability to learn is important. There is not a church member that will disagree with that statement. Since secular education is important how much more is spiritual education. As your pastor, I want all members become students of the Word.
Our church theme is “IT IS ALL ABOUT JESUS” and since it all about Him let us learn more about Him. What do you know about Jesus other than He is Saviour? Do you know that Jesus is in the Old Testament concealed and in the New Testament revealed? What about the statement, “The Angel of the Lord” do you know who that is talking about? Can you go in the Old Testament and find Jesus for He is there in types, shadows, and in the likeness of others? If you answer “no” to any of these questions come and join us in Bible Study. We are going through the whole Bible book by book to see Jesus therein.
I can recall my mother saying to me after she had prepared a new dish meal, “just taste it you may like it“. I would take a little from the dish and taste it. Then I would tell my mother that it is good. Come and taste the Word of the Lord. I know if you taste and taste right you will say that it is good. Here is a dish to taste. In Genesis He is THE SEED OF THE WOMAN. In Exodus He is THE PASSOVER LAMB. In Leviticus He is THE HIGH PRIEST. In Numbers He is THE PILLOW OF CLOUD BY DAY AND PILLOW OF FIRE BY NIGHT. In Deuteronomy He is THE PROPHET LIKE UNTO MOSES. There is much more in the oven being prepared for you. Are you coming to taste? The table will be set each Wednesday by 11:00am and 7:00pm.
The preaching is about the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Come to hear what the Lord has to say each Sunday.
Written in Love
