We are praising the Lord for a wonderful weekend meeting with Bro. Patrick O’Shea Jr. in Benton! It was a very special time. We were deeply blessed as our beloved apostle opened our understanding to the visions of Zechariah.

Our final service for the weekend meeting held by Br. Henry Hildebrandt, began with one of the favorite songs of the Church of God, “The Comforter Has Come.” “Our God Is Love” was sung next, followed immediately by “Salvation Is the Sweetest Thing”, another favorite amongst us.

The morning service started with the children wanting to sing some songs for us. They all got up on the platform and sang a number of their favorite songs, “This Little Light of Mine,” “Roll The Gospel Chariot,” “I Have the Joy.”
“Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.” John 20:21.
Christians are to be guided by Bible admonitions, yet many are guilty of the habitual use of expressions the dictionary terms as minced oaths. These are taken from the New Century dictionary. “Gosh, golly” are softened and euphemistic forms for God. “Gee” is a minced form for Jesus. “Heck” stands for hell. “Duce, dickens” are
“Many will say unto me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matt. 7:22-23.
The true minister, convinced, both by revelation and experience, that Jesus Christ alone is able to recover diseased souls, employs every effort to bring sinners into the presence of this heavenly Physician, that they may obtain of Him spiritual health and salvation. He is fully persuaded that he who is not “weary and heavy laden,”
Is God a means used to attain an end or is He the end for which all else is subjected to attain? Is God our servant or are we His servants? This is one great difference between true Christianity and false Christianity. Though they may outwardly do some of the same things and say the
After a brief reminder touching some of Israel’s history, the prophet Hosea summarizes chapter twelve by highlighting both the value and necessity of the prophet in the deliverance and preservation of a people. In this place, it is the people of Israel and the prophet Moses. While Moses was indeed a special vessel used of
No hearse, no body, and no entourage to a cemetery. The remains have been cremated. The ashes have been mixed with cement and made into an artificial reef, which is then placed in the sea. One such “cemetery” is Neptune off the coast of Florida. Corals and other sea life are forming on the items
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.” Romans 1:18.
Where are the leaders–political or religious–with backbone today? Where are the men and women with moral convictions?
While the nations are being pressured to succumb to the demands of a liberal, ungodly minority, one has to wonder. The extremely aggressive homosexual movement is piping and the nations are dancing–they are afraid not to!
Oh, the joy and privilege of knowing God! How could mortal man be more blessed? Enoch walked with God, and so sweet was their walk that God took him (Gen. 5:24)!
Satan’s attempt to negate God’s Word in Eden caused the fall of Adam and, subsequently, the entire human race. He attacked their faith–successfully. He’s doing the same today with multitudes and having the same success. Many of such profess to be Christians, yet their faith in the Bible, which is God’s Word to man, has been seriously undermined.
The Corinthians were instructed to sing with the spirit and with the understanding. Christ, being unashamed, was pleased to declare the name of His Father unto His brethren according to the prophesy saying, “In the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.” To him who is merry, James says, “Let him sing psalms.” Whether we are speaking of Jesus and His disciples after the ordinance of feet washing and the Lord’s supper singing a hymn, or the earth-shaking midnight duet of the holy prophets Paul and Silas, the absence of musical accompaniment is very apparent.
