Who is He?

Good evening.
The Bible says:
“When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭16:13‬ ‭KJV‬‬
That’s a good question. It’s been asked before. And yet we seldom take the answer to it seriously. 
Whom do men say I am??

That’s an important ???

There’s been many who have denied that He is the King of Glory; some say He ‘s just a man… Some have argued that he is just a good teacher. 
And just as He did with the disciples that day it came to the point where he made the question personal…
What do you think?? Can you just feel how those disciples felt as they heard that question from the lips of the One They had come to know so intimently . 

 

And did you know, it’s not important what others think about Jesus…. Here’s the important ???

Who is He…. To you???

Is He Lord? Savior? Soon coming KING ?

Master… Savior?? Any or all the above??? To You?
Or is He nothing? Nothing at all ? 

What roll does He play in your heart and life?
Well… Why do you suppose That Jesus asked them that ???

Is He starving for attention? Does he have a big ego problem? Why would He ask that ??? And Does it really matter? Does it?
Well…How long is eternity?

 It’s a long long long time.

Where will you spend eternity? That depends on you answer to the first question.
You see if Jesus is anything short of who he says he is…

If He is anything but the Son Of The Living God, then our future is bleak. 

Paul put it like this:

“If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:19‬ ‭KJV
You see everything you and I hold dear and love so everything that brings a smile to our face every thing that makes us feel alive hinges on that first question….

“Whom do you say that I am”?

That’s an important question.

The most important question you’ll ever get.
Well? What is your answer?
Good night.

The Mandate

Good Morning.
The Bible says:

“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭1:21‬ ‭KJV‬‬
This Morning as you prepare for your long long day. Before you get it in gear, take a minute to recommit. Set your affections on things above.

That means put things in their proper place from a value perspective.

If you are a born again Christian, then you have

responsibilities that are much different from that of the world around us

How does the Lord put it?
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:19-20‬ ‭KJV.
That’s our call dearly beloved. We have a mandate! And that is to live our life for Him, The Lord Jesus Christ.

We were Bought with a high price , the shed blood of the Son Of God.

His death paid for our sins.

His resurrection means that He was exactly who He said He was and that sin can’t be held against us. it has no claim on us. For we were by Faith made the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Justified. Just as if we had never sinned. Our salvation is dependent not upon how good our works are but on the Finished work of The Lord Jesus Christ. Oh Hallelujah!
And the payday that’s coming someday, bye and bye… Is going to be Glorious!!! 

Hold on weary pilgrim just hold on! It won’t be much longer!!

This morning take your Victory with you , don’t leave it at home and walk out into the world defeated. 

We are on the winning side!

As the movie said “THE FORCE IS WITH US!”

And His Name is J E S U S!!!
Have A Heavenly Day.

Christlike.

Good evening.
The Bible says:
“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”

‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:6-7‬ ‭KJV‬‬
The Bible says they were called Christian 1st at Antioch.

It was because their instructions were to follow the Lord Jesus in their Christain walk , emulating The Master. Being Like Jesus.

You see there’s more to being a Christian than just claiming to be one.

We all are sinners. We’ve all come short of the Glory of God.

Isaiah declared ” all We like sheep had gone astray.”.  

But the Child Of God isn’t just a talker, he s a walker!

He walks in the Light of The Lord.

 That means the light of His wonderful Love permeates from the life of the ones saved by His marvelous Grace!

Now how constructive can it get? We mustn’t forget that our salvation had a commitment to the Lord that we walk in a way that is pleasing to Him.
” Let your light so shine that all the world can see!” That’s not just a good idea, it’s the Commandment of The Lord Jesus!

When you act like the world you don’t do the cause of Christ much good … I mean how can they Know of His love and how he can change ones life if the ones he changed doesn’t act

Like they’ve been changed?
I had invited an old school buddy to church. I used to raise a lot of sand with him back in my younger years .

But since then The Lord saved me. It changed my whole Life. But my friend was a tough one to handle and was very apprehensive about this “Jesus Saves” business. 

But after a while I finally convinced him to come to church.
As we sat

In church I noticed an

Unusual reaction on his part.

As we left the church that morning I asked him how he liked it.

You will be blown away by his reply, just as I was.
He assured me that he had a good time. But then He added… But….

But what I asked.

He said it was hard for him to get serious about church goin as he said some of those there that morning was at the same bar and dance hall he had attended the Saturday night before.

 Then he said I can’t attend a church that’s full of hypocrites.
Though surprised and I confess, hurt and feelin betrayed, I asked him which is best, put up with em here for a little while , or die lost and spend eternity with them?

When I think of the countless hours the Body of Christ has spent witnessing and ministering to the lost and dying, it is terrible to hear that some are not acting very ” Christlike”.
Some have just enough salvation to make themselves miserable! Heehee.

But it begs to ask the ???

Why are some Christians so in love with the world and not so in love with the Savior of all men? 

Why do they allow their light to fade ? Where is the fire they once knew in their heart?
The lost today are not fooled. They see they hear and they can tell when it’s real. The life of the Christian as I’ve said before is the only Bible some people will ever read.

Our mission is to be what was it Paul Called it???

Rooted, built in Him, established in the Faith…

Why? 

That they might see your good works and Glorify our Heavenly Father.

Thank God there’s still some “Pauls ” portraying the Lord And Savior. 

Thank you for being Christlike…. What a beautiful sight.

Good night.

Division

Good Morning.
A nip is in the air… Fall sure has arrived. 

I arose this morning to another day and Thank God for it!

Slept good last night. 

Guess it was because of that Honeydo list Glenda left me yesterday.(No I Didn’t get it all done).heehee.

But with Gods help I have another brand new day to tackle that list again which I ve just been informed had a few new items to replace the ones I did get to. Whew! 

Never ending … No I’m not complaining. Just reporting in case somebody out there in FB land wants to help me . Hint Hint! 
The Bible Says:
“And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭3:25‬ ‭KJV‬‬
I used that verse last night or early this morning on Twitter and felt lead to pass it along to my FB family as well.

We gotta admit there’s a whole lot of division goin on today.

Domestic violence here at home;

Gangs abound in every city fighting in every street corner. 

Watch a Presidential debate or two and you would think things are hopeless here in the USA .

Nobody seems to agree except that something is wrong! But no two will agree on what to do about it.

Churches closing their doors because they couldn’t stick together. And today’s verse describes what happens when that takes place.

Nation against nation…

Listened to The President speak to the UN yesterday, it was worse than a thief sittin in the church house. Man don’t think there’s any love the Pope Spoke about last week spreadin in this place.

They all looked like they came for a fight.

Here at the very place where Peace and Harmony is to be sought.

The President would probably have faired better had he went back to that golf course he’s been hangin around lately.

 

But everywhere, all around the Globe it is easy to see the whole world has become morally & Spiritually Bankrupt and Love was left at the door when they enter the room.
But people can’t live like that and it’s time we saw that. Gods Word tells us we cannot stand if division is at our door.
Well why is everybody so upset?

Well the Bible has been tryin to tell us for years but we keep shutting it up. We just won’t heed the message from the Forever settled in Heaven Word Of Almighty God .

It says the nation that turns its back on God shall PERISH. 

And God hasn’t changed the rules in 2k yrs.

The Bible also says:

“I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭45:5‬ ‭KJV
This is the core of every problem in our world today.

Society wants to cram every idol every god down the throat if every man and woman today when God emphatically declares that there is only one and it is HIM!!!
This morning the best thing a soul can do is surrender to that one and only God , The Great Creator of Heaven and Earth! 

Give your heart to him and your world will suddenly turn from darkness to light.

That’s a promise from the real ” GREAT ONE!”!!!
Have a Heavenly Day.

I know Him

Good Evening.
In times of deep dark despair. When we need a friend . Someone to care.

When our faith has been tested. And we didn’t quite arise to the occasion.

It’s so good to know that there is a friend… Someone who really does care.

And that makes it all better.

Weeping may endure the night, oh but Joy cometh in The Morning!

We are more than conquerors through the Lord Jesus Christ!! Who drives away every sorrow and wipes every tear from our eyes.

Tonight it’s all because “WE KNOW HIM” and He Knows us!

Tonight grab yourself a hand full of faith and trust Him with all your might! 

Because this battle and test won’t last, But , Glory To God,our God will!!!
Good night.

Lets go to Church

Good morning. 
It’s early Sunday morning . It’s The Lords Day!

How Sweet That day is! 

It’s the one day per week we set aside to fix our hearts and minds on Him and his Grace . 

The Bible says:

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

‭‭John‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Take your choice but as for me I want to know all about someone that loves me that much.

Can associate with as many hatefuls as you wish but give me a friend like that!

Went by a church marque just the other day that said:

That is so true!! 

Man chases dreams when he should be running after God. 

Just like this morning.

There’ll be many with so many excuses to skip out on God today . Oh they’ve got their excuse all planned.

That’s the way of the crowd.

But this morning… As Joshua said ” as for me and my house , we’ll serve the Lord!!! Starting right now!

So I’m not listening to the crowd! I’m going to the church! This morning GLEN RAVEN BAPTIST INVITES YOU TO THEIR ANNUAL DAY WITH THE SINGING ECHOES!! 

Cameras will be rolling so get there early and Good seats are available if you’re there early enough!! Heehee that’s what s called a tease!!
But there’s no tease to this… Jesus is waiting to see you. Let’s get ready together 

See you at church Sunday morning!!

Have a Heavenly Day!

Pray for the preacher

Good evening.
Wonderful day in Myrtle Beach , SC.

Rain was a damper on the ocean worshippers but no problem for The Family of God that met with us at Pleasant Plains Baptist in Little River.

Rain was falling from Heaven by the buckets as the Sweet Holy Spirit did us all proud tonight.

It was a spectacular night as the joy billows swept over the house and we had a heavenly visit from the portals to the little country church down in Little River!

Seemed the crowd was going to disappoint as the clock ticked closer to 6, we began to wonder if an error in the advertising may have hindered, but folks this is a Baptist Church!! Heehee many of our Baptist friends are usually late arrivals heehee ( now don’t send me ugly mail, y’all know I’m tellin the truth!! ) but ….It’s Saturday night…. And it’s a vacation Mecca area. Just glad they all got there . House was almost to capacity. ( Thank you Lord)
From song 1 it took off and they never looked back. It was jubilee time and did they ever celebrate!! Another thrilling night at Gods House!

Thankful for his awesome presence this evening.

At the close of the service the pastor conducted a prayer party for every minister and singer present. Every one came to the alter laid hands on the ministers and prayed fervent prayer over the preachers and singers. 

We have mentioned in previous posts that we believe this was needed through out the church as the persecutions promised in the word of God are presently upon us and these times are periless.

We should pray and pray often for our leaders, the stand in the gappers Those that are true to Gods Holy Word. 

I could hear the weeping from Gods faithful ones as the Holy Spirit sent the comfort of heaven down on these mighty warriors, brave soldiers of the Cross!

Pray for you pastor ! Pray for all of us! That we would all stay faithful and true to the Gospel of Jesus Christ!!
Well afterward The ol Silver Eagle was loaded up And now is in route as we post to Burlington , NC.

At 8 am we should Lord Willing arrive at Glen Raven Baptist Church w/ pastor Bobby Fann , a yearly stop for the past 30+ yrs. Services start like always at 10 am for Sunday School then the Choir will ring out a Hallelujah welcome and The Devil will run for cover cause this is no place to mess with Gods people!! They worship the old time way here and the Devil is going to feel uncomfortable for sure. 

Pray for our safe arrival and for Sunday Morning Services!
Tonight, before you lay down your head on your pillow, ask yourself…. Am I ready to go should I not awake in the morning?

Think about it will you?

If there’s any ??? Kneel down beside that bed right now and confess your sins to God and receive him into your heart and be saved . In eternity , you’ll be so glad that you did! 

I pray you do it in Jesus Name.
Good night.

What are you known for?

Good morning.
It’s Saturday!!!

Hope my post this morning finds your heart filled with joy.

The Singing Echoes are 

In Columbia, SC this morning. The Silver Eagle needs some fuel ! And so do we! Heehee.

We shoved off last night headed for Myrtle Beach and Adam took the wheel with the Lords help and took us to Augusta Ga before retiring for the

Night. Must have been around 3-4 am when we pulled in to The Home of The Masters To All you Golfers. It’s known for all the courses and is a beautiful friendly town. 

We’ve sung many a time here in Churches and The Auditoriums around.
This morning early Gary took the wheel and drove to Columbia where we’ll get a bisquit ( I’ll get oatmeal) and the bus gets

Some fuel.
Columbia is the State Capital here in SC and is home to the Gamecocks of SC. The city has a pop. Of about 800k and is known among many things as the CAPITAL OF SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY, The City of Dreams, And Paradise City!
We’ll try some of that hospitality 

Before finishing today’s leg of the SE 2015 Tour to N Myrtle Beach. Looking forward to a great day with our Friends at Pleasant Plains Baptist Church, Also Known for great hospitality and faithfulness to GOD !
What is the place you are in today known for???

Are you welcome ? Does it accept visitors well? Can newcomers find it appealing?

Can people feel comfortable there?

Many hearts today are weary. They face uncertainty and the sometimes are filled with fear and dread.

The Bible says:
“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18:24‬ ‭KJV
Have You met my Friend, His Name Is Jesus.

But He’s more than a friend.

He’s my Lord and Savior.

He’s dying to meet you!

Come I’ll introduce you to Him….then you can kiss that fear and dread goodbye!!
Have A Heavenly Day.

Prayerline is open 

Good evening.
Myrtle Beach, SC… Here we come!!!

We are on our way. 

The Silver Eagle is all fueled up our tanks are full and The Singing Echoes are beginning the long long journey to Jubilee ,USA this evening.
A long night at the wheel so please pray for our driver’s Adam and Gary as the 2015 Singing Echoes Tour goes into full swing!

All aboard !! We’ve got a bus full of grandees and the Wive’s and the Group and this is going to be a treat for the SE’s!

A joy bound train ( in this case a Bus) on GOD’s Heavenly Highway!

Looking forward to another great night of Gospel Music tomorrow night at the Pleasant Plains Baptist Church in N Myrtle Beach with all the Roger Jones clan precious friends of the SE’s. The last visit we had to this church they put the devil in to traction!!heehee.

He still carries a bruise from the whipping the Lord put on him and we can’t wait to see him get his due again !

Pray for the Holy Ghost to do his will; we would love to see a great Harvest of souls this weekend.

Jeremy’s new Group MeadowLane sang at Cowboy Country Church here in Cleveland tonight.Pray for a victorious night for them!
I took my motherinlaw to Chattanooga this morning for some tests . They are some annual tests that hopefully will be only precautionary. Please help us pray as the results are a few days off and you know how anxious that can become.

I got to see 3 of my 6 grandees today. It’s a precious gift I’m thankful for. Love my grandees!!

We have many prayer requests and tonight open up a prayer line to you as well.

Join our happy prayer band!

We believe That God still Answers Prayer!

And He commanded in 2 Chr:

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

‭‭2 Chronicles‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭
We open the prayerline to believers! Those who believe God is still God and he is still in control! And He is faithful! He answers when we call! He said where 2 or 3 are gathered together…!
Leave your request … What can it hurt? The line is open to whosoever will trust and believe! 
Good night.

Roses

Good morning.
The Bible says:

“Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not ashamed…”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭127:1-5‬ ‭
This morning. I’d like to ask you to read this passage again….it’s important that you do.
Now what are your labors for? (Man, that speaks volumns)! Think about it…
Thank God for the strength he gave you today.

It’s going to pass by in frightening speed just as this past week has. Why, only yesterday it seems like we were enjoying the Labor day holiday and now look, it’s already Friday!
Think back, did you include your son or your daughter in your week? Did you stop to smile at them to say I Love you? Did you? Your a good parent if you did.

Did you hold your spouses hand? Did you sit down for a few minutes and just talk about fun things without getting to serious about things that don’t amount to a hill of beans?

Did you think for a moment how good God has been to you? Really?

Have you stopped
