The Mark of Cain

Good evening.
Listen to the plea from none other than The murderous Cain.

He had faced the judgement of God for his deed of murdering his own brother.

God sent him from the only home he had known & from life as he knew it.

Outside there were dangers that brought him to his knees begging for Gods aide. Listen to his cry:
“Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭KJV‬‬
An old sinner who came to his senses about his sin!

He knew he could not bare the consequences … Gods mercy was his only hope.

To which God gave him a mark! “The Mark of Cain”

Though an embarrassment and a disgrace to him and his family, yet it was a life saver! That mark protected him from those who would otherwise seek to take his life.

So wherever he went, whoever met him though they would see the Mark of Cain, they knew that with that mark came the warning of God!

It would save the man’s life .

Today there’s another mark God has for the Heart of whosoever will accept his son. That mark is the cleansing blood that washes away our sin! Makes us worthy of Heaven.

Just to know we don’t have to fear death anymore!

Just to know we are free from all sin and won’t have to die and go to Hell!

Praise God for the old rugged cross!

Stained with blood so divine!

Washed all sin away! Protects us from the charges from the enemy!

Gives us a home in heaven and a life beyond the grave!
Tonight, let God search your heart try your reins! 

In him you’ll find the peace that passes all understanding!

And tells the world this one belongs to God!!!

Think I’ll go have myself a shoutin spell!!!
Good night.

Prideful Generation

Good morning.
The scriptures say:
“There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭30:13‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Proverbs … Written by the wisest of the wise.

Giving instruction for one to walk thereby .

The passage today is enlightening.

It suggests…a haughty generation. One that is lofty in its view of itself.

Have you ever read that before, and pondered….

Wonder which ” generation ” he is describing?

It is easy to see that in our thoughts it may or may not be the one the writer wrote

Of, but ours would easily come close to it.

We have a prideful generation. That’s why it’s so hard to warn them about their sin.

They don’t want to have to Deal with the subject though they know their heart is not right in the sight of God .

Some choose or prefer to die in their sin rather than admit they’re just an old sinner in need of Gods amazing Grace.
The Proverb writer also wrote earlier that there were 7 things that God hated.

And he had a problem with our sin of Pride more than any other issue . 

You’ll recall the first requirement for revival not just in the church but in the soul mentioned by Almighty God was the penitent humble heart .

Humble yourself and pray he wrote.

Seek his face and turn from wickedness he continued.

Seems that man has had a long battle with a prideful heart.

I have too. Certainly most of us have.

But a prideful heart won’t get anywhere with God!

The bible says if I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me.

And He knows we are but sinners bound for hell in need of a savior!

But pride is the one thing that God hates. And we must get rid of it if we are to expect anything from God.

And with Gods help, we can!
Guess by now you feel like I’m lecturing you. But my heart will tell you if you could see inside, that I just love you and want to tell you the truth so it can help you find your way to Jesus.
This day is a brand new day and it’s ready for you.

Start it right. Go back and think about what we have written. And I pray the Holy Spirit will touch your heart, convict you of sin and cleanse you by the blood of Jesus.

I hope today your pride won’t hold you back !

Come while he waits for you.
And 
Have a Heavenly Day .

PTL

Good evening.
It’s really been good! Special thx to all who have prayed for the SINGING ECHOES this past weekend.

You are a great part of what we do. We appreciate each of you.

This morning we not only were at a sweet Church at Inspiration Baptist Church in Rock Hill, SC. 

God gave us an opportunity to be on TV once again.

( No that doesn’t make us Movie or TV Stars) it gave us an opportunity to share Jesus Christ with a much larger audience than we r first expected.

It is our prayer that God used that experience to send forth his messAge to save some soul that might have tuned in to the telecast.

See…. Once again, God opens doors no man can shut.

I believe that from my heart!

We truly have had the hand of the Lord upon our work for Him lately.

We thank God for what he has done..

And for you…. For praying, for giving,for attending and 

Encouraging us.

We’ve crossed through 12 states the past few weeks alone and we thaNk God for the Strength for the wherewithal to get us from one to the other.

It always amazes me shay the Good Lord can do with just willing vessels he takes to the top of the mountain 

And truly the view folks is stunning!
Go to now the Bible says…

“The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭30:25‬ ‭KJV‬‬
We’re not much…. But we are Gods!! And that’s what matters!!

To Him be all the Glory !!!

And thx again for your support
Good night 

Sowing seed

Good evening
Another wonderful night at Landmark Baptist Church.
The fire came down as the capacity crowd got into things and the Lord blessed us all!! Bro Amos lead it off with a warm welcome, the class singing was rich and annointed.

Then they turned the SE’s loose and we had a jubilee.

The grandees ( Audrie & Quen, joined in and the Folks at Landmark loved it as they saw that the future was

Bright for the Singing Echoes! These folks have watched the SE’s since the days of Mom and Dad sing on their stage and now they See our boys singing along and now the grandees !! Oh PTL!!! The Devil won’t ever hear the end of the Sin. ging Echoes!!

So many faithful fans reuniting from miles and miles around to worship together… It sounds a lot like Heaven will be!

After the Last amen, the Silver Eagle pulls out destined for Rock Hill, SC .

We’ll be there in the early morning hours and will set up at the Inspiration Baptist Church for Sunday morning. 
We pray for Landmark and Inspiration that we leave with them a burning testimony that will lead someone to the saving knowledge of Christ Jesus!
The Bible says:
“As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.”

‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭11:5‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Despise not the days of humble beginnings.

A little Seed sown here or there a little water, and some Sonshine and there’s no tellin where it may harvest!

Pray that it will.

Good night.

Without Jesus your week will be weak

It was a great day 

Good Morning.
It was great!! I can’t believe how much I ate!

Father forgive me I know what I have done!

Thank you for your Happy Thanksgiving Wishes .

They made me smile.

I really appreciate it.
What’s next? Well, now we concentrate on the big big holiday that’s just 28 days away! 

Wait!!! Did I just say that Christmas is just 28 days away??? Can you say PTL???

Our savior’s birthday’s just around the corner.

 

Already I detect something in the air…. It’s joy. There’s joy I’m noticing in more and more hearts recently. 

And I don’t believe that’s a coincidence. 

I believe the Joyful news brings that effect!

Did you watch the news yesterday? 

All you heard was gloom and doom. 

The media reports so much bad news it has a disparaging effect upon lives.

People are on edge. They lose hope they don’t trust anyone anymore and rightfully so.
But why can’t they tell some good news? 

Why is it seemingly bad bad bad all the time?

They spent all week last week reporting the terror attack that hit Paris. 

They spent the entire week over there.

But there was a report that gas prices were down $.75 

From last year. Took less than 2 seconds! 

Wow a whole week to report the bad, but barely a second or two to give the good news about gasoline, and its effect since it’s easier for us to afford these days.
Man isn’t too excited about cheering us all up.

There seems to be

More $$$

In making us all miserable!

Did you know something?

My Lords not that way!

He has never made me feel like that! Not since I accepted him and put my trust in him.

Oh I still have my share of misery but it never comes from Him. 

It’s from my adversary the old Devil usually.

Shame on him!!!

But today I’ll take my day seriously and share Jesus with everyone I can.

Spreading cheer everywhere to the sad and the lone!

It even makes me feel better!!
Ohhhh Happy Day!
And Have a Heavenly Day!

Thankful I am

Good evening
It’s been a day of Thanksgiving !
Family time, great food,

Beautiful weather , oh My Aint God Good?
The Bible says:
“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭100:1-5‬ ‭KJV‬‬
It’s at times like these this scripture mean’s more to me than any other time.

I joyfully sing a song of Praise!! To the God whom I serve and I hold dear to my heart.

When I think of how he came so far from glory!

Came and dwelt among the lowly such as I…

Who am I that he would pray not my will, thine for?
We all know… And I’m the happiest guy around!!!
Good night.

Long time ago

Good evening.
Are you ready yet?

Turkey & dressing, yams, corn, broccoli casserole, pumpkin pie and all the fixings of a great and memorable thanksgiving day feast!! Yahoo!!
The kids the grandchildren and the Elders ! Ah this is one of my favorite holidays , Family time at it’s best.

There were great times years ago when mom and dad , grandma, grandpa, aunts and uncles met for the celebration of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I learned how happy family could be. Happy happy days ago!

I can still hear them laughing . I still recall fighting over the turkey legs! Heehee ( I won )

Grandma made a powerful pineappleupsidedown cake.

It was to die for!

Had me in traction for days wow was it ever good!

Don’t know how a little 

4 room house could hold everybody! The old pump from the well out back, the outhouse down by the way, ( have you figured out we were kinda poor yet?)

But we didn’t know we were .

Sittin on the front porch , the same place we now hold morning devotion during our Blue Springs Valley Sing, the family would gather to talk, play & sing. Happiest yrs of my life.

Then grandma would shout ” Come and get it”… It was time to eat!
Do you know you are creating loving cherished memories your children and grandchildren will hold dear and precious in their heart as long as they live !
Like the old song says

Precious Memories how they linger. How they ever flood my soul!

Moms gone now, dad too.

And Grandma , grandpa, and so many of those who made our live’s full.

My my how I’d love to run and play with them all over again. 

Tomorrow don’t let it all pass by without taking it all in. Like I found, it won’t last forever.
But the turkey will be gone soon; the Pumpkin pie, too. Loved ones too. Oh..grone ol heart grone…
Take a little time to appreciate those who soon will be gone. 
The Lord said:
“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”

‭‭James‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭KJV‬‬
And go get that Turkey leg!!lol!
Good night.

Let there be Light

Good Morning.
The Lord said:
“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭1:3-4‬ ‭KJV‬‬
From darkness to the light. 

Thank God for the light!

It’s a beautiful morning out there. 

Watched yesterday as our President Barak Obama and the French President Hollande just met in search of support against the terrorist problems they both face at home and abroad.
While they were meeting it was learned that Turkey downed a Russian Jet they claimed had violated their airspace.
Last night they were protesting on the streets of Chicago regarding a killing of a teen by police officers.
Sounds to me like we need that light this morning.

Our world has rejected it.

A poll was being discussed last night that the number of Believers in America has fallen to I think it said 44-46 percent down from 54 only a few short years ago.

And to think , just when America needs some sharing of that light many have let their lights go out.
Shame On The Devil!!!
He will soon see his end! 

America wake up!

Darkness is all around us!

Let’s get back to the Light while there’s still time!

God has a record! 

He will be the final judge .

Let your light so shine before men , today. 

Have a Heavenly Day.

Let us give thanks

Good evening.
There is hope in a hopeless world

Gods word Declares:
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:1-2‬ ‭KJV‬‬
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved” ol Paul told the Roman jailor; next thing you know he got Saved !!
He wrote “by which ye are saved”!!
The Lord saves that which was lost! Not through anything we have done.
Paul said 

Not through works of righteousness we have down,

All the things we ever did can’t keep us from splitting Hell wide open. Only the Grace of God can change us for eternity!

Only his blood can save us and give us new life!
That’s something this Thanksgiving week we should take note of and give God glory for!

After all, where would we be today had he not paid for our sins at Calvary?

At the Cross at The Cross where I first saw the light.

And the burden of my heart rolled away!!

It was there by faith I received my sight!

And now I am happy all the day!
Yes that’s me!! Happy PTL!!

Hallelujah!! When he came to where I was and set me free!

I’ve known the joy of a life filled with Christ!

I wouldn’t take nothing for what is in my heart!!

Oh Glory!! What a wonderful day!

And this coming Thanksgiving day it would be fitting to say thank you Lord!! For your blessings on me!

The Psalmist said “Come before his presence with Thanksgiving and enter into his courts with Praise! Ps 100…

He is Worthy!

Sounds good to me!

Let’s go!
Good night.
