Thanksgiving Day Message - Pastor David

Image

Philippians 4:5-7, “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your reqyuests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Worrying is as definitely forbidden as theft, according to our verse...and the whole of Scripture. This needs to be carefully considered and realized by Children of God, so that we do not excuse it as an innocent "weakness". The more we are convicted of the sinfulness of anxiety and worry, the sooner are we likely to perceive that it is most dishonouring to God, and "strive against" it (Hebrews 12:4). But how are we to "strive against" it?

We strive against worry by watching its beginning, and as soon as we are conscious of the harassment of our mind, as soon as we detect the unbelieving thought, lift up our heart to God and ask Him…

WHAT IS ALLAH? ALLAH IS NOT THE GOD OF THE BIBLE - Pastor David

Image

While many sincere and well-meaning, but MISGUIDED Christian pastors, preachers, and teachers, have argued that the word "Allah" is simply the Arabic word for "God", the facts are something quite different.

Even among Islamic scholars there is general agreement that the term "Allah" refers to a pagan deity before Islam came into existence under the leadership of Mohammed. The pre-Islamic Arab culture spoke of 360 gods of which "Allah" was simply just one of them.

The correct Arabic name for "God" is the word "Al-ilah". And it must be stated that it became a generic title for whatever god was considered the highest god.

EVERY Arab tribe used "Allah" to refer to its own particular high god. For example, the moon god called "Hubal" was the god to whom Arabs prayed at the Ka'aba and when they prayed they used the name "Allah".

Historians have said that "Allah" was the chief of the 360…

Not of This World. The Child of God is NOT of This World - Pastor David

Just before the LORD Jesus closed His ministry on earth He said to His disciples, “if the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. if ye were of the world, the world would love its own; but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (John 15:18-19). “I have spoken unto you that ‘IN ME’ ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33). Then Christ said concerning His disciples, in His prayer to His Father, “THEY ARE NOT OF THE WORLD, even as I am not of the world.” (John 17:16). Meditate on that verse for a few moments and try to grasp what the LORD is saying.

It would seem from these words of the LORD Jesus Christ that Christians would know that the term ‘worldly Christian’ seems to be paradoxical. Note how the world is described in 1 John 2:16, “All that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the e…

God Allows Satan Certain Power on Earth - Pastor David

Since Satan is the ruler of this World, God allows him a certain degree of latitude of action which most Christians do not fully appreciate. NON-believers of Christ are taken captive by the devil AT HIS WILL. 2 Timothy 2:26. PLease watch this very important video message: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niLTHsU2H5o

***

In Ephesians 1:13 the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul declares that men are saved and sealed by hearing and BELIEVING the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation. Therefore, here, now, is declared unto you the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation: "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" 1 Corinthians 15:3-4. BELIEVE today. The time is short.

So There You Have it!

Spread this message to everyone you know, far and wide.

Grace be to you and peace, from God: our Father, and The LORD Jesus Christ.

In The LORD Jesus Christ,
The Lion and Lamb…

Are You Spiritually Ignorant? Find out! - Pastor David

Because of the prayer of Christ on the cross (Luke 23:34), and because Christ's death had to be AS it was, and WHEN it was, by God's eternal decree and purpose, (Acts 3:18; Acts 4:25-28; Acts 2:22; 1 Peter 1:18-20), God was willing to forgive Israel's murder of Christ (Acts 7:51-54) on the ground of ignorance. (Acts 3:12-17). Some of the Israelites DID repent. But the rulers and the nation as a whole would not.

Later, from the Nation Israel, God had a remnant according to the election of Grace, and "The rest were blinded."(Romans 11:5-12). Israel stumbled over the Stumbling stone. (Romans 9:32-33). "For they, being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the END OF THE LAW for righteousness to everyone that believeth.'(Romans 10:3-4).

Israelites, with the exception of a few Hebrew Christians, are STILL blind and still ignorant …

Prayer...and the Child of God - Pastor David

“Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.” Luke 18:1.



Christians not only have the privilege of praying to The Almighty God, Who is their Father; but they are commanded to pray to Him. God’s children prosper spiritually just in the degree they obey this most important command.

So many problems and schisms of the Body of Christ could be solved today, if God’s people would give themselves to prayer. How many defeated Christians there are, because of the neglect of prayer!


“He that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6


“The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers:” 1 Peter 3:12.


Is it not wonderful to think that a way has been provided whereby creatures here on this earth can really communicate with the Creator, who is all powerful and all wise; with the Great God who is a loving and compassionate Father of redeemed sinners, sensitive to all of their needs? The ears …

The Word of God, The Bible...and the Child of God - Pastor David

“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth:”2 Timothy 2:15 . “We are His workmanship.”Ephesians 2:10 .


As we stated in a previous article, we are not ready to work FOR God until we are sure that we are first the workmanship OF God, “created in Christ Jesus”. “God hath chosen you unto salvation through belief of the truth.”2 Thessalonians 2:13 ; “Thy Word is truth.”John 17:17 . The sinner saved by grace is the workmanship of God. To be saved by Grace is to be Born Again, “not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.”


There are times when some seem fearful that the Word of God will be destroyed; but the Psalmist said: “Forever, O Lord, Thy Word is settled in Heaven.”Psalm 119:89 . Truly the Word of God liveth and abideth forever. Men and generations may change in their attitude toward God’s Word, but His Word never changes. By this Word of God, we are Bo…
