Day of Grace

Good evening.
Another Grand Lords Day!!!!

The Singing Echoes stepped inside a place we had never been to before….

DAY OF GRACE MISSIONARY Baptist in Blairsville, Ga!

Pastor Lee Griggs said boys obey the Lord!!! And so we did!!
An outpouring of Gods amazing Grace fell in the house and God convicted hearts and souls came to Jesus!!!! PTL!!!

Altars full, hearts Tooo. Youngsters!! Teenagers & old alike felt the presence of the Holy Spirit touch their heart then fell to their knees. Confess their sins and took Jesus as their savior!!!

I personally watched a 12 maybe 14 year old boy standing at a pew just in front of me begin to weep in tears falling from his eyes as he ran to that altar!! Whoa Glory!!!that was a joy to see!

Meetings like that tell me these youngsters today do have a heart that can be touched!! And God is touching them !!!

GOD CAN SAVE ANYBODY!!!!

If he could save me he could save anybody!!!

What a Joy!!!!! PTL Hallelujah!! 

The Lord sent another barnburner!!! 

And the Devil got his comeuppance!!! Again!!!
How about you dear friend?
Are you saved ? Friend are you?

Do you want to be? Fall on your knees and confess your sins.ask Him to save you!

Ask Jesus to forgive you of all those sins! 

Believe on his promises!! He will save you today!!! Yes he will!
Goodnight.

Try again

Good evening.
Whew what a day!!! Think I’d like to do that one all over again.

Think I might do it a little differently.
Ever feel that way? 

Man you screwed up so badly…

Is that the Devils assumption of your performance?

Well tell him to take his discouragement somewhere a else! James 4:7.

God sees the thought and intents of the heart.

That’s right he sees our falls.

Those times when we wind up face on the ground or in the mud due to mistakes we just as soon not talk about.

The Devil may never let you live it down……

But he don’t count!! 

The Lord knows our intentions when they are real when they are authentic. And when they’re just to be seen.
But rest assured.

We will try to stay focused on the goal!!! Press towards the mark of the prize!!

Count it all Joy as ol Paul wrote!!

God still forgives and saves 

Old sinners!!! Man I sure am glad of that!!
Good night.

Promises

Good morning. 

The Bible says: 
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23:4-6‬ ‭KJV‬‬

http://bible.com/1/psa.23.4-6.kjv
It may be dark. And you many times will feel all alone. There is the assurance from The Word of GOD today that you are not alone.

Rest in the arms of Jesus, the one whose outstretched arms hung on the old rugged cross to buy our pardon and sanctify us from sin and shame.

Oh listen to that precious verse and take strength from its promises for they are sure! No matter what you are going through the Lord promised to be with you. And he has never broken a promise..

He describes the future of the blessed child of the King…

We’ll dwell in the house of the Lord !!! Forever!!! God promises eternal life one that will never fade away.

The trials will be all over and they will have been worth it for they made you strong! They gave you assurance because you discovered that God was truthful and he won’t forsake us!

We learn so much from those trials those heartaches those brutal lessons we sometimes must experience. How would we ever know just how great he is until we’ve been through the bad to see how good he is!

I still love that promise “I will dwell in the house of the Lord. Forever!!”

Where will you spend eternity?

It will be here soon . Get your house in order as the writer said !
Have a Heavenly Day.

Why?

Good evening.
The Bible says:
“I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭13:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬
It was a Psalm of David written to the chief musician.
Don’t recall the chapter telling if he had asked Why David sang.

But he was apparently curious and David being the guy that he was responded. He was saying He’s been good to me!!!

hallelujah!! He’s been good to me Tooo, bro David!!! 
Thought I’d ask you. I know many of you who read this post day to day are like David, great singers too. 

Many a time you have to sit back for a lack of a chance to Share what’s in your heart because, well there’s only so many we can actually put on a stage each night.

So, you linger, patiently, God bless your heart, for the chance to do your part!

To you, I salute! 

Thx for being faithful!

 Patient one, Tell us….why do you like to sing???( or for they Who wish they could) ….

Tell us all why .
Good night.

Preach the word

Good evening.
Many ??? Have come to me over the 46+ yrs of ministry.

I’ve never claimed to be an expert and won’t bore you with an attempt right now..

From family problems to money problems to health problems to whatever problems a church encounters….

I still have one solution and only one. Its borrowed . I didn’t discover it on my own .

It was from The Apostle Paul.

He instructed Young Timothy the same instruction I share with you :
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”

��2 Timothy� �4:2� �KJV��
Don’t try to judge or otherwise tell them what to do…. Just keep preachin the Word!!!

Some don’t trust the Word.

That’s why they’re in trouble – NO FAITH. 

The Bible says:

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;”

��2 Timothy� �4:3� �KJV��
So how do you deal with all that? 

As Paul said keep on preaching the Word!!!

They won’t always accept it, God didn’t say Make them accept it, just preach it!!!

See :

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”

��Isaiah� �55:8� �KJV��
Just trust his word. He knows what to do. Don’t try to fix it yourself. Gods a lot better at it than we are. 

The Word Is :

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

��Hebrews� �4:12� �KJV��
Just preach the Word Church!!

It will work when nothing else will!

Put a little love with it and your problems won’t stand a chance!
Good night.

All day singin

Good evening.
A great day at Pleasant Hill MPB church today.

Oh now that’s church folks!! What a sweet Spirit we experienced .

A jam packed auditorium, to a bountiful harvest dinner, to a jubilee afternoon and the Crowd was again near capacity. 

The only one not welcome was the ol Devil!! And he was in pain from the bruising he took , 

hallelujah!!! 

 It was all day singin and dinner on the grounds and celebration 

To boot which did our hearts good!! Thank you Lord and Pleasant Hill Church for giving us the liberty to obey the Lord!!
A side note :
I read where some were looking for a place to go to church tonight. 

As so many churches have gone the way Of the world and shut their Doors on not only Wednesday prayer meeting nights but now Sunday nights Tooo! 

Devil has got to love that! He don’t have to waste time there.

Well the excuse is that no body is coming anymore. 

Wonder, how did that happen. Seems like there’s a lot of churches finding out their programs are not workin out too well.

??? How can you win souls when the doors are all shut?

What does an old sinner do now…make an appointment with the pastor!?

There’s An accounting to be given one day.

Wonder what happened to the altar? What happened to the Spirit? Where did the soul winning desire go? 

Guess the shows over.

Guess the nation and the family’s are on their own tonight.

No one to pray no one to praise the Lord no one to preach the Gospel! No one To sing Gods praises. 

And We want to know what has happened to America? Well if you find out what happened to the church then you ll find out what happened to America.

America is in trouble tonight because many a house of God is closed tonight.
We have a lot of explaining to do church when

We get to the end of the way.

Don’t think Gods gonna be happy with what we’ve done with the church. 
Good night

If I should die 

Been out pretty late aye?Sowin your oats I suppose. 

Just laid my head down too. 

Had a great time at Oak Grove Baptist tonight in Ragland , Al.

Took a while to get to bed . Now like you I’m about to close the day on these ol eyes. 

But I thought of you before I could. And thought about something. 

Remember that ol nighttime prayer we once said as a little one? 

Now I lay me down to sleep..

Remember ? Perhaps you said that prayer before too, 

Here’s why i thought of you when that little prayer came to mind.

If I should die …before I wake..

And that’s what I wanted you to think about . 

If you should die before you wake in the morning, neighbor are you ready to die? 

There’s still time Heavens doors are never shut and God never closes. 

So if that dying thought bothers you if the conscience just won’t rest, call on him call on him right now. 

You see, God Still Saves Old Sinners! And God can save you tonight. 

Turn to him then you can sleep like a baby!!PTL!
Good night.

Prayin for Rain

Good morning!!
Well, PTL!!! I thank The Lord for a God that answers prayer!!

I must share this! We are so dry in this part of the country here of late. Nearly 13″ below the average in rainfall according to the local weathermen. 

And to beat it all, there’s been storm clouds and thunder and lightening goin on for the past couple of weeks and indeed part of the county did get an a

Occasional shower. 

But our little part of the world remained parched! Not a drop to mention about for weeks.

So I took it to the master night before last! 

I asked the Lord to send me some rain. Not too much mind you, but Lord we sure could use some. 

Well praise the Name of Jesus!!

What do you think happened the very next mornin? 

Here it all came! Not a gully washer, no we don’t need that but a steady good old fashioned soaker kind that refreshes the flowers and turns the grass back to that beautiful green !!

Well thank God again !!! How good he is to me!!!

What’s on your heart today? Need a little help from above? That divine intervention the world smugly calls it today? 

Well I’m here to tell you prayer still works!! 

Politicians may not, the job may not, nothing else may but God still does!!! Give him your problem tell him what you need today! 

God is a great big GOD!! He cares about you and yes he listens to that cry when you call on his name!!

Hallelujah!!!

“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

��James� �5:16� �KJV��
Have a Heavenly Day!

Turn the cheek

Good evening
This day went by so fast I prayed and I asked the Lord if he was sure he put 24 hrs in it!

Heehee

Well, I didn’t hear a word !!! 

lol! 

But it sure felt like there was a few hours that got left out! 
Here’s some scripture to give you something to think about:
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 
Some of you out there I can feel it, are thinkin…”God has no idea what I’m going through”!

But you should know child of God, that the one behind those attacks is none other than the ol Devil! 

Now you know why I’m always sayin ” SHAME ON THE DEVIL”!!!

Many People have no idea of the effect their words or their actions take on others.

There have been times I’ve witnessed brutal assault taken on a fellow Christian when they reached out to help someone.

People often discover the Christian and think it’s in season to tear them down and attack them . They blame them and God for all their ailments.
We often wonder if this turn the other cheek stuff is worth it? 

Hint hint ( He Turned his cheek on you and me a lot of times).

It s a bitter pill to swallow,

 

Ahhh, But listen to a promise the Master makes…
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:6, 11-12‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Count it all joy as The Apostle Paul once said…. Whew!!! Now that’s a challenge , neighbor!

Truthfully, I’m still workin on that countin it all joy thing! But I have learned it does feel better when I do.

And when I see a pic of his suffering body on that ol cross as it appeared say in the Movie the “Passion of The Christ.”

And when I hear a song like ” I have Not Forgotten” by The Inspirations…..PTL!!!😢

My cheek doesn’t feel so bad after all. 
Thank you Lord for teaching me humility.
Good night.

Behold what Love!

Good evening.
🎼Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing flood are you washed in the blood of the lamb! 🎶

There’s a fountain flowing for the souls unclean 

Are you washed in the Blood of the lamb?🎶🎶🎶
The Apostle Paul said :
“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”

��1 John� �3:1� �KJV��
You must be born again.
 “That’s a fact ” as Ol uncle Si says! 
Paul says – Look at his Love!  

Examine it. Look at his love! 

How can a Heavenly Father let his only begotten Son be a sacrifice for hell-deserving sinners knowing they would reject him, ignore him, and even deny him. 
Look where he had brought you from. Remember what that was like? Paul did . According to him,

We:
“Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:”

��Ephesians� �2:11-12� �KJV��
All we like sheep had gone astray as Isaiah wrote…
So…. Why would a Heavenly Father sacrifice his only begotten Son for losers like us?

It’s a bad deal!!!

Man did he get a bad deal! 
God had all but given up on man once before….

Remember Noah? 

That’s how close we all came once to annihilation.

Again there on the old rugged Cross!! His word declares that he could have called 10k Angels!

To destroy the world and set him free!

Paul is making the case

For us folks. 

We were without hope and without GOD….

And Jesus Was GODs only Son 

Who sacrificially laid his life down on CALVARY’S old rugged Cross to die

For our sins and pay for our sin- debt. 

We can live today because he died that day! 

But then he rose again 3 days later. 

He arose!!!

And bought our redemption !!! 
So that’s why that blood the writer wrote about is cleansing hearts and lives this very day!

The BLood Has cleansed us from our sin!!! The Blood !!! It’s Still the BLOOD!!!

It answers the ???

What can wash away our sin? That Blood that Jesus shed for you and me!
It took an unselfish love. 

It took An unbelievable love!

It took an unconditional love!

IT TOOK GODS LOVE!!!PTL!!!
As Paul said, “Behold what manner of Love”!! Yes sirree , Behold…. indeed!

 It is amazing, isn’t it????
Good night.
