What is Your Priority?
We all have priorities in life; family, work, saving for kids college, etc. but where does Jesus fit into your priorities? Is He even anywhere on your list? The message I spoke to this congregation this past Lord's Day was a message I had spoken once before and when I had finished I was told by someone to preach this message often, "preach it once a month, whether people want to hear it or not". So when I was asked to speak this past week this the message I felt lead to speak but the Holy Spirit put a bit of a twist into it. It's still the same message but the Holy Spirit had me touch on some things that I didn't touch on before. I hope after hearing you'll take a look of where Jesus is in your life and if He's not the priority of your life that you'll fix it. If He's not even in your life you'll confess Him, repent of your sins and be baptized for the remission of your sins(infant baptism is not biblical baptism). Feel free to comment or contact me. God Bless!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
It's been a month or so since I've posted and several things have happened but not bad. I finished up my time evangelizing to the congregation that I had been with for a year and a half, I love them all but when the Lord calls you listen and what He says you do. The Lord gave me the gift of an evangelist, not the worldly meaning of an evangelist, the biblical meaning of an evangelist as written in Ephesians 4. I'm going wherever I'm asked to go and speak and I really enjoy taking the bible to as many places as I can. If you'd like for me to come and speak to your congregation just contact me through the Contact link, I don't charge fees, I'm not here to profit off of Jesus' Good News. In having this time off I've been able to get a lot done around the house and farm, we actually just got a new flock of chickens yesterday. I'll be starting soon on my fencing so we can get our dairy cow and beef cattle, really excited (yes, I'm simple). I'm now asking the visitors of this site for help, no not money, I'm not one of those false preachers out there looking to profit, if you notice there's NO donate link. I'm looking for suggestions, I have more time now to do some different things and wanted to see what you think. I've thought about setting up a podcast to do maybe monthly or possibly weekly discussing varying topics but if there is something that any of you would like, please let me know. You can comment in this section or email me directly through the Contact link. Thank you all for your support and God Bless!
Once again the Lord blessed me with an opportunity to speak at a revival, it was a wonderful week and a wonderful revival. Here below is the message of the night I spoke; Jesus is the Way, the Truth, the Life. God Bless!
This week I'm having an incredible opportunity to preach a revival, in this blog section I will post each meetings sermon. God Bless!
Thanks to a comment from a visitor of America's Trumpet I've added a YouTube channel. It's still a work in progress trying to get all the sermons uploaded, I'm trying to get it done as soon as possible but about a quarter of my sermons are already uploaded. Now you can go to the YouTube channel and copy and paste links to specific sermons that you would like to share and maybe I'll add some videos and other material to the channel as well. The link to the channel is pasted below and at the top of the homepage of the website is the YouTube icon, if you click the icon it will send you to the channel. Thanks for the support and thanks for the comments. God Bless.
Yesterday I started a new series comparing and contrasting the modern church to the early church, as followers in Christ we are to be a New Testament church although that seems easier said than done. God has preserved His Word down through the years for a reason and as the church, Christ's bride, we can refer to His Word to know how we the church are supposed to be be. Not just what our job is but also to know how we are to assemble, the roles within the church, the structure and organization as well. As after all if the local church isn't a true New Testament church, if it's doctrine isn't sound as well as it's structure and organization then it makes it really difficult for the church to do the job that Christ left us to do. Yesterday's message is on the Corporate Church, one of the world's leading businesses today albeit far from what Christ had commanded of us. As I continue on in this series we will see how far the church has departed from sound doctrine and we shouldn't be surprised after all scripture tells us in the latter day they will depart from sound doctrine (2 Timothy 4:3-4). The point is we shouldn't have sinful pride that we've gone off course but instead be willing to accept our mistakes and correct them. There is great work to be done that Our Lord left us with, it's time to get to work.
Yesterday's message maybe a little different than most are used to in regards to a Mother's Day service. Today most preachers are more content with giving sermons that are in essence generic; they don't want to offend anyone so instead of speaking the truth they speak generic. It's a cleaver way to get out of lying. Mostly is because most preachers today aren't true evangelists appointed by God but instead career seekers looking for a steady job and pay, after all who wouldn't want a salary plus a house to live in. Personally I had to go to war to get those types of benefits. So if this is a career then they'll treat it as such and unfortunately the modern church is broken (more to come on that in the coming weeks). The bottom line is the truth must be told, this sermon is straight from God's Word, some may take offense but that was in no way my intention. I preached God's Word and said what He put on my heart. We must always take time to stop and reflect, reflect where we are in our walk with the Lord and whether or not we've strayed from the teachings and principles that He has called us and commanded us to do. If you find yourself off the course get back, we don't know when He'll return but if you're not where you need to be there will be no coming back. Eternity is forever! God Bless.
I working on updating the blog more often as well as adding some more to the site. I'm looking at adding a section for my wife to give updates to things she's doing around the homestead, as well as any thoughts she may have. Also I'm looking at doing a monthly newsletter, adding my thoughts on various topics and giving any news updates of upcoming events. The traffic on this site continues to rise, Praise the Lord His Word is being heard, so I thought doing a newsletter once a month might be a good option. If anyone is interested just click on the comment section and leave me your email address and once I get the newsletter up and going I'll add your email to the list. Thanks for the support and God Bless!
5th Sunday Song Service
Normally I don't record and post our 5th Sunday song services, maybe I will in the future, but this week was an exception. One of our dear brothers is in the hospital fighting a battle with cancer, music has been a big part of his life and he's sung a lot over the years in our church and during these song services. I thought I would post the service so our brother could enjoy listening to us singing praises to the Lord while he's in the hospital. We love you brother Pete!
Are You a Prepper
Today's message was titled Are You a Prepper. Prepping has become huge in our country today, many people believe that some overthrow is coming in the near future. There's the talks of marshal law, FEMA camps, the government loading up on weapons, ammo, food and water and considering they're not loading up enough for the citizens it's understandable why people feel compelled to "prep". The interesting thing is it's people from all walks that seem to believe this, prepping is a huge industry now, in the past your local sporting goods store would normally stock regular items for fishing, hunting and other sports. Now there's bulk food, water purification, tactical supplies, obviously enough people have the sense that something is about to happen. While it's good to be prepared for whatever may happen it's vital to prepare for the Lord's return and that's what this message is touching on. The Lord lead me to this message and I pray that all that hear it will take heed to the Lord's message and be prepared. God Bless.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of evil, but rather expose them.
