I Have It. Give It. The message was brought by Roger Clark. Acts 3:1-9 “Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms...
Wright Family Song Service We invite you to join us for a special service of old time mountain gospel singing on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 11 a.m. Feature singers are the Wright Family. Having recently moved to our area from Washington state, they share a touching testimony of God’s wonderful grace. Ted, Kim, and their 9 children...
But Now Are Profitable Sometimes we treat God like we do our doctors. They have no idea what’s wrong with us until we tell them, until we’re examined. Do we think that of the Lord? In our subconscious do we think God is unaware of what we need?  We have to acknowledge his Lordship. He’s over all. We’ll know some of...
The Lower You Go, The Higher You Get Luke 14:1 “And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.” Verses 7-11: “And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them, When thou art...
This Is Love II John 6 “And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.” “And this is love.” The dictionary gives lots of words to define love. It’s hard to nail it down. Love is not by vocabulary; it’s by...
I Am Purposed Part 2 Psalm 17:3 “Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.” We need both a vision and a purpose.  Without a vision there would be no United States of America. United against England, the...
The “Descendsion” The word “descendsion” is not in Webster’s dictionary, but I want to use it. Consider the “descendsion” of the Lord. I’m not talking about dissention, which is arguing. Decendsion is as essential to salvation as the Ascension.  To have had the Ascension we must have first had the Descendsion....
I Am Purposed Psalm 17:3 “Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.” Here is a remarkable prayer to the Lord. David makes a bold statement to God. It’s one thing to tell someone else  we’re...
David’s Score Card The sole reason David was willing to face Goliath is that he looked at his past calamities and saw that God brought him through. It is significant that David seems to be giving Saul his resume’. He rehearsed to Saul why he could do this. He showed King Saul his score card. God came through in the past....
Lord, Visit This Vine Here we find a plea to the Lord from David on behalf of Israel; it’s also one for his own benefit. He didn’t say “now, Lord, take care of your vine.” He recognized that in him was a vine—his heart, soul, and mind. He realized how he needed a visit from God.  The Lord did the planting and set...
