A Thought From our Pastor:

World Of Hate.

John 7:7 "The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil."

The world hates Jesus Christ, it hates God, and it hates everything connected to them. The world hates the bible and it hates those who read, study, and follow it. The world hates churches and it hates the souls that are members of those churches. This world is Satan’s, and Jesus said "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." John 8:44. It is for this very reason that, if you are a Christian, you must expect people to hate you. This hatred is not limited the lost but also to so called church members and Pastors alike. We must understand just because a person calls themselves a Christian, it does not make them a Christian. The world is full of "false Christians" and these people are just as hateful as Satan and the world toward real Christians, churches, and God. They will demonize God’s word, true churches, and real Christians. They have no love for God, they only love their false god that lives in their evil heart called Satan. The war in the world is to shut-up, and shut-down the other side therefore making only one so called truth, that is the lie of Satan. When someone "demonizes" something they portray something to be wicked in order to make people embarrassed to believe it. This has been going on with lost people for decades. The Liberals use this "demonization" to cause conservatives ashamed to believe their beliefs. The News media uses it to shame people who are of a different belief. Examples of this is countless, and it is not going to change. People who are not real Christians or even weak Christians will also do this to shame the Sovereign Grace churches for believing the truth. These people have no defense, you cannot defending a lie. This is why churches of truth are so low on membership, because their friends shame them into leaving the truth. When the Lord said "The world cannot hate you…" it is because the devil cannot hate itself, the doctrine and the message is the same. Jesus said in John 15:19 "If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you." They may disagree on somethings, but when it comes to the Lords people and his churches then they are in union against them. God went on to say in 1 John 4:5 "They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them." The world, their understanding and belief is always Anti-God and anti-scriptures. They will always believe that things are good as long as it is Anti-God. The battle is hard on the little remnant that God has chosen and assembled together. But, it is us, the little remnants, the little flocks that must suffer the demonization and all the insults of the lost and Satan to keep the truth. The Truth will stand with us, if we fall the truths of the bible will fall, but thanks be to God we continue to stand tall on these truths. We (as Christians) do not care what they say, we will never be shamed into believing the lies of Satan. It is not wrong be small in number, the Lords people have always been a small remnant of the world. So, keep strong little flocks, and do not allow Satan to demonize you into his lies. Our reward in not in this world, but the world to come. Let us all pray for one another, and pray that Jesus comes soon.

The God of Jacob is the God of all GRACE..
By Author W. Pink

"But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things . . . so that no one may boast before Him." 1 Corinthians 1:27-29

If ever there was a man who illustrated in his own person, that God has chosen the foolish, the weak, the lowly, and the despised—it was Jacob. According to the flesh, there was nothing winsome or attractive about Jacob. Selfish, scheming, deceitful, treacherous, untruthful—he was a most unlovely character. What was there in him to attract the love of God? Absolutely nothing! We would have thought that Esau was a fitter subject for God's favors. Exactly! But God's thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are His ways our ways. Spiritual realities are hidden from the wise and prudent—and are revealed unto babes. Self-righteous Pharisees are passed by—while wicked publicans and harlots are constrained to partake of the Gospel banquet. The rich are ignored—while the Gospel is preached to the poor. Esau is hated—while the "worm Jacob" (Isaiah 41:14) is loved with an everlasting and unfathomable love!

The full force of this divine title, "The God of Jacob," can only be apprehended by a careful study of the patriarch's experiences. The first time we see God entering his life that memorable night at Bethel. A fugitive from his father's house, fleeing from his brother's wrath, with probably no thought of God in his mind at all, "When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep." (Genesis 28:11) As we see him there, asleep on the bare ground, we get a striking picture of man in his natural state. Man is never so helpless—as when asleep! It was while he was in this condition, that God appeared to him, and said, "I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you." The God of Jacob then, is the God who met Jacob while he had nothing, and deserved nothing but wrath—and who gave him everything. Happy indeed are they who have such a God for their God!

Walking Bibles
By Thomas Watson

Determine to PRACTICE whatever you read. Christians should be walking Bibles, living the truths written. The Word is not only a guide to knowledge, but a guide to obedience. A holy reading of God’s Word, results in our fleeing from sins, and practicing the duties commanded.
