TREASURES FROM GODS WORD 
 
 
And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good. (Genesis 32:12)
This is the sure way of prevailing with the Lord in prayer. We may humbly remind Him of what He has said. Our faithful God will never run back from His word, nor will He leave it unfulfilled; yet He loves to be enquired of by His people and put in mind of His promise. This is refreshing to their memories, reviving to their faith, and renewing to their hope. God's Word is given, not for His sake, but for ours. His purposes are settled, and He needs nothing to bind Him to His design of doing His people good; but He gives the promise for our strengthening and comfort. Hence He wishes us to plead it and say to Him, "Thou saidst."
"I will surely do thee good" is just the essence of all the Lord's gracious sayings, Lay a special stress on the word surely. He will do us good, real good, tasting good, only good, every good. He will make us good, and this is to do us good in the very highest degree. He will treat us as He does his saints while we are here, and that is good. He will soon take us to be with Jesus and all His chosen, and that is supremely good. With this promise in our hearts we need not fear angry Esau or anyone else. If the Lord will do us good, who can do us hurt?


  
 
 
DAILY PROMISE 
 
 The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. (Nahum 1:7)

Not only is the Lord an unbreachable defence to those who find their identity and righteousness in Christ, but He knows intimately each whom He defends. He is aware of our every need and every weakness, and thus, we, His people, can be supremely confident in His ability to bolster us in the face of even the fiercest enemy. Rejoice, O believer, for He is our great shield and high wall of bastion!


 
 
 
 
[Mat 24:34 KJV] 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. ..... The fulfillment of Gods word is coming to pass before our very eyes. The Great " I AM " has given " whosoever will " the opportunity to accept Jesus and be Saved.
  King David said; [Psa 2:1 KJV] 1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? ...Because Pride, The Flesh and The devil have convinced the lost of this world that the only thing that matters is them, the great sea of humanity and the Global Community....My prayer is that this pestilence will open the eyes of the world and while they are on their knees, The Precious Holy Spirit will convict them of their lost condition through the preaching of the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross and His Resurrection from the dead, seated at The Father's right hand to make intercession for all who will come to him...... [Luk 21:28 KJV] 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh..

      Due to the current National health Emergency, our Calendar and service schedules have been suspended. I am at the church every Sunday at 0900 for prayer and sermon presentation. You can text me your prayer request or send them to my wife via messenger and i will include them in the sermon presentation. I expect each and every one of you to follow your heart and the unction of the Holy Spirit and be led by God regarding your worship of our Lord and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. I am available by phone always and you are welcome at my house anytime for prayer or whatever God lays on your heart. Our Savior died for us and was resurrected to sit at the Fathers right hand to make intercession for each of us. Live your lives for him until such time as he calls us home to be with him. May God bless each and every one of you.

 GODS PLAN OF SALVATION

 

There is only one way to heaven

JESUS said: "I am the way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.  (john 14:6) 

 

Good works cannot save you.

"for by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast." (ephesians 2:8-9)  

trust jesus christ today! here's what you must do:

  1. confess to God that you are a sinner, in need of a Savior.

"for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (romans 3:23)   

"wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" (romans 5:12) 

"if we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." (1 john 1:10)  

 

2         Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead

"for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (john 3:16)

"but God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us." (romans 5:8) 

"that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (romans 10:9)  

 

Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal saviour.

"for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (romans 10:10)  

 

3     Turn from sin and repent

Jesus said: "i tell you, nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." (luke 13:5)  

"and the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:" (acts 17:30)  

"for whosoever shall call upon the name of the lord shall be saved."  (romans 10:13)   

"but as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" (john 1:12) 

"therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 corinthians 5:17)


if you have received jesus christ as your saviour, as a christian you should:

  1. Read your bible every day to get to know Christ better.

"study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 timothy 2:15)  

"thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." (psalms 119:105) 

 
  1. Talk to God in prayer every day.

"and all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." (matthew 21:22)  

"be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." (philippians 4:6)  

 
  1. Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other christians in a church where Christ is preached and the bible is the final authority.

"go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (matthew 28:19)  

"not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."
  (hebrews 10:25)    

"all scripture is given by inspiration of god, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" (2 timothy 3:16)  

 
  1. Tell others about Christ.

"and he said unto them, go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (mark 16:15)    

"for though i preach the gospel, i have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if i preach not the gospel!" (1 corinthians 9:16)  

"for i am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the jew first, and also to the greek." (romans 1:16)
