Gods Tools

Good evening.
The Bible says:

“Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.”

‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭18:2-4‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Remember where the Bible said to go watch the ants? 

Strange example, eh?

The Lord uses unusual tools from his tool chest to train his children.

That goes for the Lesson here today found in Jeremiah.

The admirable masterful hands of the Potter.

The clay gives a great example. It’s worthless on its own.

Useless and wasted …. Until the master gets his hands on it.

I was just like that piece of clay. And I still am.

I m of little use, until the Potter molds and shapes me to serve his purpose.
I get impatient. I make mistakes. I fall short.

Sometimes I feel like giving up.
Then God sends a little ol ant in my view and I watch him to see how he works.

He doesn’t always go the right way, sometimes I can put a twig or a stone in his path to hinder it. But he keeps right on working, pressing on, until he gets where he needs to go.

So,

I pray and get back up and try again.

The Lord then makes my way a little clearer.

And I’m on my way again….

Thank you LORD.
Some mistakes are so bad I’ll never get it right.

Then I feel those hands …

The Potter… Molding a new wrinkle in me, making me a better man than I was.

There’s a lot of work to do on this old coot, 

And I’m getting pretty old .

Then he tells me, I still love you…. That’s some Potter.
Didn’t mean to preach to you…. Just thought it might help.

Oh yes, And keep your eyes out for those ants.
Good night.

Praise him for all he has done 

Good morning. 
Thank the Lord for another Lords Day.

How blessed we are .

Thank him for all his wonderful blessings and there are many beloved.

The Bible says :
“Do not err, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”

‭‭James‬ ‭1:16-17‬ ‭kJV.
Today , we have more than any human being before us ever had.

We should stop and take a moment to thank our dear Lord for blessing us so.

And if we started right now we would never thank Him enough! 

So this day at the Fathers house we will lift up our voice in praise to the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who died for our sins rose from the grave and lives in our heart!!!

Glory to his name!!!
Have a heavenly Day.

Something new

Good evening.
The Silver Eagle just pulled out of Selmer , Tn

Headed to home sweet home!

And tonight at 2nd Baptist of Selmer , we had a first…

PTL!!! What a great night.

Oh yes there was a singing and shoutin time that shook the house.

But something else broke out and surprised the whole house.
You would say well Pawpaw we’ve heard you preach many times. And surely many of you know that. 

And then you would say well we’ve heard Gary take a sermon or two to task.

And again you would be right and both of those situations did occur….

But something else took place.. Something the ol Devil surely wasn’t expecting. 

And you will say …. Man I’d like to have been there for that… And neighbor…

You should have been!!!
Tonight something new!

Something that will have an effect… Something the ol Devil is going to have whiplash over.
Tonight ol Pawpaw did his thing and Gary did too.
But tonight…..

There were 2 more …

Yes that’s right 2 more joined the attack!!! PTL!!!
Tonight Matthew and Joshua both did some preachin of their own! 

The house was in shock! So was pawpaw!!! He said GLORY TO GOD!! Devil, you’re never going to hear the end of the Singing Echoes !! And you just might have what the preachers call Campmeeting where all the preachers there break loose and the devil runs for cover!

It was indeed a first! 

But won’t be the last!

Gods hand just showed us there was more to the Singing Echoes mission than just singing a few songs ….

Oh yes there is more now and you never know what’s going to happen when you see this bunch show up!

All Gary and Debbie and Pawpaw can say is ” TO GOD BE THE GLORY!”

Great things he has done!

Tired and thrilled at

The same time the Eagle heads for home! Will pull into the driveway sometimes before morning, maybe 3am.

And each long weary mile we count our blessings one by one. 

Praise the Lord!

Pray for these guys …

The devil is going to tell them what a mistake they made tonight ( you know his usual discouragement trip). But the mistake was his he should have gone somewhere else tonight!!

Hallelujah!!!
Good night.

Jubillee time 

Good evening.
Want to take a moment and thank The Lord for our safe journey today.
The Silver Eagle has arrived at The 2nd Baptist Church in Selmer, Tn for tonight’s gospel sing. 

1st song is at 6 pm central.

The Eagle has been unloaded, we had a sub from Subway ( Thanks bro Carrol ) and now the gear is all set up and jubilee time is almost here.

Bro Tony Polk the pastor invites everyone to come sing along with the church in this great evening of gospel music!

Wonderful spirit here and we look forward to this evening praising our savior and Lord!!

Please join us in prayer for Gods grace to set souls free here tonight.

We have been here a few times now and the ol Devil never did very well here as these people love God and will praise his name all night long.

Come join us… Come early sitting will be at a premium.

But GOD is so good! And he will bless his people when they give him praise!

Join us for this awesome service tonight.
Devils in the phone booth callin 911!!!’ Heehee!
Good night.

 

Be Saved!!

Good morning.
By now you probably know this is Saturday.

Happy Saturday!!

We had a great night last night at Myers Hill UMC, in Tracey City, Tn

The hand of the Lord came down on us at that church and we had a great meeting.

We were blessed to have our good friends and now faithful fans Amy & Jasen Miller and mom Doris who drove up from Birmingham!! Thanks so much for coming folks. 

The altar got busy and the sweet spirit filled the air.

Pastor Dennis Rollins our old old friend cut loose preachin and we double teamed up on the Devil and body slammed him!! Heehee.

It was a great time at Myers Hill. ( please be much in prayer for sis Brenda Pastors wife who is ill and was unable to attend last night. 

Prayer for a quick recovery.).
The Bible says:

“Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Paul gave that charge to his followers. 

Soul winning is what we are all about.

Singing just to be singing is not worth all the effort.

The purpose of our mission is to tell the lost about Jesus and his saving grace.

That’s our goal, purpose, and mission statement.

Today is a good day. 

We will be glad in it but we won’t be satisfied in it until we see another soul come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus.
Today if you hear his voice …. Harden not your heart.

Be saved Today!Be saved today!

And……
Have a Heavenly Day.

Come to the water 

Good evening.
“Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬
No money necessary 

It’s without price.
You couldn’t buy it whatever the price.
That’s a promise. Good thing. The night I got saved there wasn’t a dime in my pocket.

But I was so thirsty.

Got a little news for you.

WE ALL ARE A BIT THIRSTY.
Don’t think Jesus is your answer? Tell me , say Jesus wasn’t available. Say you couldn’t have him.

Then where would you find a thirst quenching drink at no price . (PTL).
The Lord said to come to the water.

Mercy, that’s inviting.

Come to the water. 

Thirsty people will like to hear that.

Suspicious? It’s without price…. There’s no money needed. 

He is interested in your heart, not your wallet.
The Bible says:

“If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭50:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Now, why would the one who created it all…..be after the little that you and I have?
Jesus Jesus Jesus my my what a deal!!!

Praise His Holy Name!!! 

I’m going to the water…
You comin?
Good night.

Good morning.
What a privilege it is to be called a Christian.
A child of the Living GOD!

An Heir of Salvation. Joint Heirs with Christ!

Purchased by GOD!
A Believer! 

That’s right !! A True, born again, Believer!!
I don’t care where you go in this earth here below, that title stays on your Christian VISA!! 

They can’t deny you! It’s forever settled in HeAven and they can’t take that away!

I’m glad I can tell you that. 

I’m glad that I can claim that!

I don’t deserve it nor do you or anyone else.

But it’s not acquired by deeds we have done but by what The Lord Himself has done!
So this morning, step out your door with that assurance that you are a special creation of GOD!

A peculiar type the world will never understand.

But Heaven will bid welcome when we come marching in.

Not bad for a boy that deserved Hell . 

Deserved no title other than heathen. A mark of Cain about us since we came into this world but forgiven and who’s sins have been washed in CALVARY’S flow.

This morning you belong to an elite family. 

One with a heavenly Address, with a clear title to a mansion on the Street of pure gold .

As you go out today…

Tell some one else…..

There’s room at the cross for more!
Have a Heavenly Day.

Broken promises

Good evening.
Just a note to those of you who enjoy the Music Of The Singing Echoes.

The Silver Eagle is fixing to go back to work.

Friday night continues the tour for 2016 with our good friends Dennis & Brenda Rollins and the folks at Myers Hill 1st UMC in Tracey City, Tn.

It’s been a whole year since we were last here and it was

One of those jubilees as the Holy Spirit took over and gave the ol devil a beating!! 

We look forward to returning for another heaven on earth meeting where the Lord blesses in a mighty way!

1st song will be at 7pm so don’t miss it as we expect a glory comin down meeting that will touch your heart. And win a soul for Jesus!
Then we will head to middle Tennessee.

A return trip to Selmer Tenn to see our great friends at the 2nd Baptist Church. Folks this place is a Honeypot!! 

It’s a great church and we have some fond memories already of the last few meetings there. I feel a shoutin time’s a coming!!

1st song is at 6pm Central time.

I’ve been looking forward to this weekend.

I’m ready are you?
The Bible says:

“Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:3‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Ever had a promise made to you that was broken?

Well, so have I. Makes you want to not trust anybody doesn’t it.

Yet I heard something the other day that made me stop and think.

How many times have I failed to be totally honest with others?

Wow!!

That’s a Hard question right there.

Usually it is said that you find the hardest people to forgive really are the ones who’s faults and or failures reflect those of your own.

And God sometimes allows unfair things to happen to us so that we can be forced to deal with the failures of our own.
I know I’ve not got it all together just yet…..

Thank you Lord for forgiveness and for helping me get it right, lest I hurt someone else.
If I have hurt you….. I’m sorry. I was trying to be a Christlike Born again Christian…. And I’m not quite there ….yet. 

( Christlike that is).
Good night.

Eternity

Good morning.
The Bible says:

“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”

‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:2-3‬ ‭kJV 
That s not exactly what the world wants .

They want you to dwell less on eternity and more on the now.

The Immediate. That’s the attitude of our world today.

But GOD reminds us that this world is not our home.

We are pilgrims and strangers in a weary land that is running with its hair on fire.

Was watching a news segment just now.

There is growing concern about the unrest going on all across the world.

The concern is that it’s getting more and more difficult to protect the citizenry with so much terrorism going on.

Violence and corruption is so prevalent.

That’s the product of the selling of the here and now and forgetting the eternal.

The Bible teaches the people perish when there is no vision.

When they lose hope, when they no longer have a moral compass…

Disaster will certainly follow.
And here at home. The home we live in. It’s the same there. 

When there is a loss of spiritual direction then chaos will result.

The moral fiber of our world has brought danger to the wellbeing of our home and family.
We have a source where we can find that moral and spiritual compass .

There is a refuge!

His name is JESUS!!!

Have a Heavenly Day.

The same

Good morning.
It’s Monday Feb 22, 2016.

Showers are forecast for today with a high of 63. 

Wait just a bit longer, Spring is just around the corner.

Just 3 more weeks till its time to roll our clocks back an hour, for Daylight savings time begins.
While some like Winter, others like fall, then again some prefer Summer,

Most everybody enjoys a pretty Spring. Everything is blooming and life is refreshed after a long winter’s nap.

I do like Spring.
The Bible Says:

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭13:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Seasons may change.

The weather will indeed change .

The Times, they are a changing as everyone can testify.

Flowers will bloom in the spring and fade in the fall.

But GOD IS EVER THE SAME !!! Hallelujah!

He is my constant friend on whom I can depend.

He’s my hope and my song. He’s my Lord!

Do you know him today? 

Please don’t turn him away.

You will find a faithful friend in this Friend of mine! 

Hope you will take him as yours. By Faith… Receive him into your heart, and let him put some Spring into your life!

” Let the Word Of Christ dwell in you richly”…( Col 3:16).
Have a Heavenly Day.
