May God Bless You!

January 2012's Ten Days of Fasting And Praying

From January 6, 2012 through January 15, 2012, we will be fasting and praying.  We will have church services at 8:00 PM each night of the Fast.  The theme of this Fast is "Sound Doctrine".

Below you can watch each sermon from during the course of this Fast.

Message From Pastor Howard W. Smith, Sr.

May God Bless You Church,
 
And a good morning to each of you. “To every thing there is a season and a time there to every purpose under the heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
 
As we start out on this “Fast”, it is important to realize, as always, that this is not the time for normal activities, it is a “Solemn” time. We are living in the last days and are these days ever so evil.
 
We ask that you put a cap on your laughter; messing around; joking; and let’s me real in our hearts doing this “FAST”, that God may pour out His Holy Spirit upon us all; which will make us to be “ONE”. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Our aim during this “Fast” is to bring us all up to another level in Christ and that is with a deeper knowledge of who Jesus Christ is and our place in the “Will” of God.
 
I will need your prayers and attention; your dedication and commitment. Obedience, your Love, your Reverence and your Respect: first to God, then to Leadership and then to one another. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Deacon Paul has asked that we all be in our seats each service 10 minutes before the hour the service begins. Let us govern our time wisely so that this can be done. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
To grow we must be cleansed of all, not some, but all impurities of the soul and spirit; and I am speaking of the mind. Self must be put down and all must die daily that Christ might live. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Love to you all and let us all look forward to having a rewarding “FAST”,
 
The Pastor

Day 1: Sound Doctrine

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
We are to blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast and then call a solemn assembly; we are to gather the people and sanctify the congregation. (Joel 2:15&16)
 
Church in order to get close to God, we must first be purified. In order to get into God’s Kingdom we must do things God’s way. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Tonight’s message dealt with that which is sound. in order for us to be clean, we need a doctrine that is sound. One that is solid, firm, unyielding, tight, but right and not weak as water. So it is Sound Doctrine, the teaching of Jesus Christ, brought to us by the Holy Spirit of God. Flesh off the fire of God, steaming and ready to melt down any and everything that is not of God; that we might be purified and meet for the Master’s use. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Church we cannot go through this life with a twisted face and a messed up attitude. Mad about nothing and refusing to be happy in Jesus. It is time to clean up and be prepared for the out pouring of the Holy Ghost. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Tonight we began in Joel, the 2nd chapter and the 15 and 16th verses. Speaking on the things that is needful in order to be prepared for the coming of the Lord.
 
Church the season of fasting and praying is not the time for a husband/wife relationship. Now turn with me please over to the 3rd chapter of Ecclesiastes, beginning right there at the very first verse, where it tell us that to every thing there is a season and a time there to every purpose.
 
God has a purpose when we fast. It is to bring us all into the oneness of mind that we might be blessed all at the same time. And we cannot be one if some of us are enjoying our spouses while others who have not a spouse..... is suffering. Oneness Church, we all must be one.
 
You see........seasons change.........they come in and then they go out. The Fast is only for 10 days and you mean to tell me that you cannot lay aside your desires during the fast to be one with the others. Something is wrong with you spirit!!!
 
Listen, the Lord says that there is a time to embrace and there is a time to refrain from embracing. It is in there, right there in the 5th verse.....go ahead and read it.  The fast is not about you and your wants but it is about oneness in God who is over us all and should be in us all, that He might bless us all in the end. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Now if you still care to doubt this sound doctrine...(for there are some of you who do) then come with me over to the 7th, chapter of I Corinthians and read for me please what God says there in the 5th verse. “Defraud (meaning hold back from another what is rightfully theirs) ye not one another”.....watch this now........are you ready....” except it be with consent for a time” ...and you should consent so that you can be one with everyone else........don’t be selfish now, but loving, it is only for ten days..........listen......”that you may give yourselves” to what???? “fasting and prayer” which is what we are in right now, for ten days..............fasting................and praying......Oh yes this is sound. No holes in it at all. Now if you be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land, but if you refuse and rebel against this, God says that you shall be devoured with the sword (which is the Word of God) and guess who said it. “the mouth of the Lord”. Sound Doctrine!!!!
 
The Apostle Paul gave Titus some specific instructions and that was for him to speak that which become sound doctrine; the reason being Church is that there a many out there and even up in the Church with a lot of mess in them and unless the teachings is sound, they will find a way around it and a make an excuse not to do it. But if it is sound..........you get the point??? Good , now don’t forget it. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
And we ended the message right there in Titus 2:1-3. You cannot teach good things with a gospel that is sound........Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Love to you all,
 
the Pastor

Day 2: God Is Real

May God Bless You Church,
 
As we enter our second day of the Fast, and feeding off of the Songs and Testimonies, God gives the Message that is to be delivered: and that He did.
 
We centered on the Realization of God, for He is Real.......God is Real, Church,.......He is as real to you and you are to Him. Now you can’t beat that with a stick. We all love to be treated as we treat. We do good and we expect or hope for the same in return.. It does not always happen like that, but we wish, hope, and even look for it. And you know, it is only found in God, not man, not woman, not boy or girl, but God, because He, Church.................. is Real. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
They say that Coca-Cola is the real thing, but it is mixed with water!!! You get the point, as Deacon Okie says.......I pray that you do!!
 
Dear Ones, It is a time of fasting and praying and we are asking each of you at this time during the fast, to remember a long time and dear friend of mine...Nathaniel Byrd........who has to go in to the hospital for surgery next week. Pray that God will be with the doctors as they attempt to remove all of what is found and that there will be no mistakes made by them (the doctors) during the process. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Love to Each Of You and please join us in this Season of Fasting And Praying, and we thank you,

Day 3: Sound Doctrine

May God Bless You Church,
 
As the Apostle Paul said, “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His, And, Let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” (II Timothy 2:19)
 
To get into God’s Kingdom, you must do God’s will. There is no other way into the Kingdom of Heaven, but the way of the cross; it is what leads home. The way of the cross Church, the way of the Cross. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Now as we continue in the Word with Sound Doctrine, which is the teachings of the ways of God, that will enable you to be as God is. This watered down doctrine that is surviving the airways today is not going to work. The Lord did say that this generation wiser and sure enough it is. This is why we must, I say we must walk the walk and talk the talk of Christ, if not this generation today will spot your weakness and point it out to you; and will use it against you. Don’t claim to be a member of God’s church and let them see you out there doing the things that they do, they will call you out and tell on you. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
It is important for the Leadership of today, to stick to the Book and that is the Holy Bible, for in it there is eternal life. The Book is right Church, because Holy men of God, speak as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. Isn’t that wonderful........or yes how sweet it is to be a part of what is right. Sound Doctrine, Church, sound Doctrine. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
God spoke to the aged men, the aged women and their duties. As the Sunday School lesson spoke of today, it the practical points, how that along with leadership comes accountability and responsibility. The souls of men and women are in our hands and we must be as God is, in order to convince them of this holy plan of God. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Tomorrow is Work meeting and I am sure that God will speak to us concerning works. For faith without works is dead.
 
Love to you all,
 
The Pastor

Day 4: Faith Without Works Is Dead

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
How Great Is Our God????
 
Tonight we dealt with faith, works and faith without works, how that “it” is dead.
 
Now God, in the beginning had faith in knowing that when He spoke, His Word was respond. Not in a different way but as sent “it” out, so did the Word. He said let there be light, and guess what Church...............there was light. Confidence which is what we need in pleasing God. For he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder to them that seek Him. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
We had spoken to the Church on last Monday about work, paying your offering; half day; sacrificial. Telling them how that they would make more money during sacrificial week then they normally do. Now just believe God, don’t doubt Him, just believe His ministers and be blessed.
 
At least three members have spoken of more hours (which meant more money), others spoke of more money on their checks even though they were on salary. One had asked, “Pastor how did you know that it would be”. My response was, “I am to just speak what God gives me to speak”. Now you know this is true and it is up to the hearers of the Word to just believe. That’s it Church, just believe.
 
Faith in what God has said is to be and when He blesses you, (as the Elder Michaux says) don’t cheat. Because you can’t beat God giving and you surely can’t beat Him hold back either. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Our Founder said and taught, that you don’t pay your burial fund for yourself, but for your brother, and your brother is paying it for you. Do you get the point??? We don’t do for ourselves but do for others and then trust God to open unto you the windows of heaven and let the blessings of God flow upon you.
 
I was thinking of how that some are still no matter how many raises they have received throughout the years, are still putting two dollars on the table for their offering. Two dollars Church, which explains why they are always crying for help. How are we doing Church???
 
People are afraid to trust God; if He says for you to do it, as my daughter says............”do it”. That’s it, just do it; don’t wonder at it, just do it; don’t fuss about it, just do it. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
WE as that you will please remember William Roseboro, Jr in your prayers; he is in the Spotsylvania Hospital with a very large lymphoma in the stomach area, which has limited his strength and his ability to breathe. There is one thing that I have learned of God is that He is without a doubt........Almighty. And can do anything but fail. Can I get a witness???
 
Love to you all; and please don’t forget...........that faith without works is dead,
 
The Pastor

Day 5: Be Not Conformed, But Be Ye Transformed

May God Bless You Church,
 
Blow the trumpet in Zion and this we must do, that the age men be sober, the aged women likewise, young men zealous of good works. What a plan Church, What a plan!!!
 
Tonight we brought forth the message from the 12th Chapter of Romans, where Paul spoke of being like Christ and not like the world. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
It is the ten day of fasting and praying; it is the time for each of us to examine ourselves and see where we stand. And as we hear the Word, apply it to our lives that we may be acceptable unto God which is our reasonable way of service to God who is holy and knows all things. You cannot hide when it comes to God; He sees right on through you and know that you are full of it and I am not talking about the Holy Ghost either.
 
People wonder why Jesus Christ came.......Church He came to save us from sin and shame. If there were no sin, there would have been no need for God to have given Him that we might be saved. But He did because Adam and Eve, our fore parents sinned and therefore sin fell upon us all. Do you get the point??? I pray that you do. Now repeat and be baptize that your life may be saved. And after being saved, come to Jesus that He may cleanse you from all unrighteousness. Amen??? Amen???
 
Let us not be conformed to this world, Church, but be transformed, as Paul says, but the renewing of your mind, that you prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of ..........who??? of God.
 
We did get by the Hospital today to see Billy Roseboro, Jr. Please keep him in prayer as the doctors do what only they can do and what they cannot do, we ask God to take care of the rest. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Also, Nathaniel Byrd came through surgery okay today and is back at home rest. We thank you for lifting his name up in prayer. Believe it or not, prayer changes things. Can I get a witness???? Thank you!!!
 
Love to you all, and the sermon is attached below,

Day 6: The Constitution- Colossians 3

May God Bless You Church,
 
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, the Lord knoweth them that are His. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart for iniquity. (2 Timothy 2:19)
 
It is important Dear Ones to know and understand that every business, church, organization must or should have a Constitution and God did give unto us, by our Founder, Elder Lightfoot Solomon Michaux, the 3rd Chapter of Colossians as the Constitution for us to be governed by. Telling us that if we are to obey every thing that is written in this chapter, we cannot miss out of the Kingdom of Heaven.
 
You Church when you allow the Word to come in, it will move out.........do you hear me???? It will move out all of the hatred, malice, backbiting, anger, wrath, fornication, (sex outside of marriage), uncleanness and anything else that is against sound doctrine. AMen??? AMen!!!
 
Tomorrow night is petition night. We do not have testimony, but we anoint those who desire to be anointed and we go down in prayer for the time allotted until the order of service be changed.
 
We are to bring in our petition to God, place them in an envelope, seal it with the cross of Christ and then lay them at the feet of Jesus.
 
Now please be thoughtful of your brother and sister..........asking God for the out pouring of His Holy Ghost to be upon you.........it is the ultimate gift that does enable each of us to be as God is..............HOLY!!! Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Now don’t ask God for a million dollars and then you don’t have wits to deal with it. That is asking amiss which is commanded by Him for us not to do so.
 
For those of you who are out of town or even out of the Country in some other land, around the world, just email it to us and we will print it out for you and put it in with all of the others.
 
Before I end tonight, please remember Brother Ashton Bell and his wife Sister Tawanda Bell that God might save them from the sifting of Satan; for his desire is to sift them as wheat, but if we pray for them as Jesus spoke and prayed for Peter, every things with them will be alright. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Love to all of you and have peace among yourselves,
The Pastor

Day 7: Your Petitions; Do You Believe?

May God Bless You Church,
 
As we come to the ending, not the end, but the ending of the ten days of Fast, we want to impress upon you how important it is to press on. As one stated, “I feel it in my body”. yes, and how good shall it be to the soul. As the Lord said in Joel 2:28, And it shall come to pass afterwards, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh.......Amen ...........Church, that is the reward for all of the suffering.............so we thank God and press towards that mark. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Tonight God wanted to encourage us to just believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and it would be done for us, in whatsoever we ask. Now that is something..........if you know that it is according to His will..............go ahead and ask God for it; but don’t trying to get it without including “in the name of Jesus”. Oh no, He must be included, because He is seated right there on the right of hand, speaking to God for you and you are going to leave Him out???? Oh no please don’t do that!!!1
 
We want to thank you for your petitions, they have been sealed with the anointing of the oil and then place at the feet of Jesus. All that is needed for you to do now is start thanking Him for responding to your cry. Amen Church???? Amen!!!
 
Just would like to thank all of you for your prayers for Billy Roseboro, Jr..........the doctor has found the cause and has begun the treatment. It appears that he is doing so well that he could be, according to the will of God, released on Saturday. Thank God For Jesus!!!
 
Another answer to prayers was for Nathaniel Byrd..........the surgery went well, no slip up by the doctors, which is always a possibility when operating on the back; especially when it comes to being close to the spine. But God did as we ask, guide the doctor’s hands that there will be no slip ups..........he even went to work the next day. Now you tell me...........how great is our God???
 
It is important Dear Ones, that we begin to just thank God; you have ask, now just turn and begin to thank Him for that which you have asked of Him. Now that is faith.......believing that He is able to do far above what we could ever think or ask. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Love to you all as we come to the close of another day of fasting and praying,
The Pastor

Day 8: Afterward

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh.” Joel 2:28
 
Church, it is oh so important to understand, that the Holy Ghost is promised to all who believe and know the truth.
 
Now Church, if you do not know this, may I inform you, today, this day and this hour of the day, that God will not...... and is not........ going to put His Holy Spirit into anything that is unclean. This is why the Prophet Joel stated that when gathered.....the people are to be sanctified and then afterward, he said, the Spirit of God would be poured out upon them; not before, but afterward.
 
It is the same with the chastening of the Lord, (of which we all are partakers of) if now........ we endure “it”, .....even though it is grievous, afterward “it” (speaking of the chastening) yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness and it is unto each of His children, whomsoever is brought up under this type of discipline. Oh yes, the chastening of the Lord is a reminder......it will come to the mind when the devil introduces you to something that is against holiness.
 
So the message centered on the word “afterward” and the importance in knowing what God will do after that we have obeyed His commandments. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
We ask that you will continue to remember married folks, who are suffering today and mainly because they choose to marry instead of shacking up, Now “Marriage” without doubt is honorable in all. And because it is honorable, the devil is trying his hardest to make married folks feel like they should not have done it. “things were better the old way” But know thou this O man, that the goodness and forbearance and longsuffering of God is for your good. And why, because He loves you and is giving you time to repeat of the wrong and make it right through marriage, which He says is honorable. Oh the riches of His goodness.......where would this world be without “it”.
 
So let us adhere to the commandments of God, (stop the disobedience) that as He hast promised, so shall it be. It is what the fast is all about......... being prepared for the coming of the Holy Ghost, by allowing the power of the Word (the Gospel of Jesus Christ) to cleanse us......that we may filled with His Holy Spirit and them be able to go with Him when this life here on this earth has come to its end. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Thanking you all once again for your prayers..........spoke with Billy Jr and his wife yesterday evening and through it all, he is coming along. The doctors have started his treatment and so far, thank the Lord, he has handle “it” okay. Please keep them in prayer. I say them, because it is not easy having the man or father out of the house. Satan is a prowler and loves to destroy whole houses. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
And also remember Deacon Okie Smith in your prayers who had a slight setback last week but through antibiotics is coming along. As he says when one will asked him how he is doing....”the devil is trying to kill me every day, but the Lord keeps me one step ahead of him”.
 
Love to you all,
The Pastor

Day 9: Obedience To Sound Doctrine Will Lengthen Your Days

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof. Ecclesiastes 7:8
 
Church we are blessed to be coming to the end of yet another Ten Days of Fasting and Praying, and God is still ..... I say still opening up unto us an understanding of His Holy Word. As we endure through and by the Spirit of God.........we have come to the close of the day.
 
Tonight God gave us a thought of how that Obedience to Sound Doctrine will, I say....will lengthen your days here on this earth and over into the life beyond today. Oh yes God does without doubt have a plan. And as we are oh so blessed to be under the power and influence of the Holy Ghost, the Word of God is Sound. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
As I was sitting in Church tonight during the testimony service, God lead me to look at the two live plants and the one make believe plant in the rear standing all alone. It is interesting how that we sometimes slow down and God renew our strength through the wiliness to fast and pray; sit under the power of the Word; allowing the Soundness of the Gospel to clean out the old self, (which has caused us to be sluggish) that we might be meet for the Master’s use. Oh yes, God knows just what we need to make it; Sound Doctrine!!!
 
You see Dear Ones, the two plants have life in them and without water they weaken and if they do not get any water, sooner or later they will die. Now the other plant which is in the back, it is looking good and in its ever looking beauty, but you know something.......it is a fake. There is no life in it at all. It looks good, but inside there is no substance. It never grows, nor does it increase in size, the same with some folk...........they look good, talk good, but are without the living power of God. Interesting isn’t it??? I’ll say that it is!!!
 
So Dear Ones, let us have some substance of life in us, leaning and depending on Jesus Christ our Saviour who died for us that we might have a right to the tree of life. And remember that Obedience to Sound Doctrine will Lengthen Your Days. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Love to you all, and I thank you for your prayers,
The Pastor

Ten Days of Fasting And Praying

From July 8, 2011 through July 17, 2011, we will be fasting and praying.  We will have church services at 8:00 PM each night of the Fast.  The theme of this Fast is "Ruling Your Own Spirit Well".

Below you can watch each sermon from during the course of this Fast.

Day 1: Ruling Your Own Spirit Well

May God  Bless You Church,
 
“And it shall come to pass afterwards, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh.” (Joel 2:28)
 
As we begin the season of fasting and praying, Minister Dave, who is conducting the Fast, began with the theme of ruling your own spirit well, which for some is impossible unless they are filled with the Holy Spirit of God, which does not error; because it is the Spirit of God who is Holy, Upright and Perfect in all that He does and say.
 
Love to you all and we invite each of you to join in with us and if you are in the Williamsburg Area, coming out and be with us as we Fast and Pray.
 
On the Seventh Night, we bring in our petitions, presenting them to God and waiting on that which He has promised; the out pouring of His Holy Ghost upon us as we work through the Fast to be One. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
We ask that you also will be mindful of those who are suffering in the flesh because of the different diseases and one in particular that we are aiming at, in this Fast, so named by man.......called........ diabetes. We would like to see God, all according to His Will, bring an end to this issue of the blood, once and for all. Now I am a firm believer in what God can do, and am asking Him to put forth His finger of love and touch everyone who has the faith to believe that they can be healed of Him, who created us all and is the God of all flesh. Amen??? Amen!!!  
 
The Message is listed below, enjoy,
 
Love to each of you,
The Pastor

Day 3: The Sabbath

May God Bless You Church,
 
“If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it.” (St. John 14:14)
 
As we enter the 3rd day of the Fast, satan is kicking and God is blessing those in whom has the faith and are trusting Him with their lives.
 
We are continuing to ask for your prayers for Minister Dave as he takes on the task of conducting the Fast. It is not easy, fasting and preaching. He not only has to battle the flesh, but also the spirits of those in which the Preached Word is against.
 
You see Dear Ones, the Preached Word, cuts deep; it is sharp and it cuts; folk don’t care to have their deeds brought to light, so instead of repeating they lash out at the Minister who is delivering the Word. Can I get a witness??? It is what has been done through the years and it is still being done today; because the same devil that was then, is now and shall be until Jesus come and take us all out of this earth. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Minister Dave, spoke of how that he felt his sugar level dropping, (s“when you have this problem, you know the feeling”) and satan had told him to go up stairs and get something to eat, no body will know it, and then come on back and take your seat. But instead of doing that, he prayed to God and asked God to raise his sugar level to where it should be and then maintain it there and God did just that!!! What a Mighty God we serve??? He can do anything, but fail. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Church doing this fast, our thought has been for those with diabetes; searching for the right way to present this to God in prayer, for God is a precise God and operates with precision. Now listen to this Dear Ones,  Minister Dave asked God to raise his level of sugar to the right level and maintain “it”. He was precise in his asking and God response was with precision, meaning exactly as requested of Him. Now how good is God???
Sister Joy Ford, who is a faithful member, has a co-worker by the name of Robert Melbourne, please pray for he and his family who are misplaced because of a house fire; they need your sincere effectual prayer. Thank you.
 
Love to you all,
The Pastor

Day 4: Works

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22&23)
 
Thanking God for yet another day come, and day past and to be in His will during this Ten Days of Fasting and Praying. It is needful for the soul!!!
 
Minister Dave is speaking on works and how important it is; faith without works is dead being alone. Seeing a person in need and just telling them that you are praying for them and yet fail to give them what is needful. This Dear Ones is not of God, for we are to love in deed and in truth. Amen???? Amen!!!
 
Love to you all, and please get your petitions in before Thursday, the Seventh night of the Fast,
The Pastor

Day 5: Honour

May God Bless You Church,
 
“A son honoreth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is Mine honor? and if I be a master, where is My fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise My name. And say ye, Wherein have we despised Thy name?” (Malachi 1:6)
 
Dear Ones, there is none other who does more for us, than God does and there are some who make him last. Minister Dave, spoke on honor; click on the link below and enjoy.
 
Please remember Deacon Kirby in your prayers that God who alone has the power, will touch his aching body.
 
Remember your petitions that is due in tomorrow; that we may present them to God at the feet of Jesus, Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Love to you all,

The Pastor

Day 6: Killing

May God Bless You Church,
 
“For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. (James 3:2)
 
Church, Minister Dave has been speaking on the spirit and how we should be in dealing with our own spirit. this sermon is centered on “killing” of which many are doing; some knowingly and other unknowingly. But none the less, it is being done. Hopefully after this sermon and upon examination of the heart (spirit) things will change.

Day 7: Petitions To God

May God Bless You Church,
 
“If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.” (St. John 14:14)
 
Now Church, let’s not get off in this; meaning God will bless, but it is according to His will and then it depends on your faith in believing that He is able to do that which is asked of Him. He is not going to just respond to someone who does not believe in Him, nor one that is just asking to consume it upon their lust. Oh on, sorry, you are coming to the wrong God if that so be the case with you. One must first believe that He is and then that He is a rewarder of them that seek Him. ( Hebrews 11:6) Oh yes..................do you get the point????
 
I was speaking to a new brother, explaining to him about going to God with his petition. I spoke to him of Solomon, in how that all he asked God for was “an understanding heart to judge.” What he wanted was a spirit that would enable him to discern between good and bad.(I Kings 3:5-14)
 
Now as you read this story, you will find that the speech of Solomon, pleased the Lord; and God gave him just that and much more of what he did not ask God for. This is why Jesus Christ tells us in St. Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” God is REAL Church, follow His instruction and you will see for your self. Amen??? Amen!!
 
Now Minister Dave spoke on this very thing and made it very plain in how that we are to petitioned God. Click on the link and receive!!!
 
Love to you all,

Day 8: Adultery

May God Bless You Church,
 
“Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrew 13:4)
 
Last evening Minister Dave spoke on adultery, explaining it in details; what it is and what it means. He spoke of King Herod in how that he had married his brother’s wife; Another King, David by name who saw from the roof top of his house, a woman who was washing herself and he enquired after her and found that she was the wife of Uriah, a man who served in the king’s army.
 
Listen Dear Ones, “when lust hath conceived,(in the mind) it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth from death.” (James 1:15) You see Church,  King David saw the woman as she washed herself and because he did not bounce his eyes (as Minister Dave says that we should do when seeing something unbecoming) he wanted to have her; so therefore he sent to know who she was and even after finding out that she was another man’s wife, it did not matter to him because lust was conceived in his heart. How are we doing Church???
 
Tune in at the link below and hear the conclusion of the whole matter and more. Amen??? Amen!!!

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
Now that the Fast has ended, we all our trying to catch up on sleep and getting our system back on the normal track of eating.
 
Thank God was the Fast and the refueling of our spirit. Elder Daniel Russell of Washington DC came down to be in the service for it always reminds him of the good times when the Elder and Sister Michaux were living. Desiring the old path!!!
 
Elder Dan spoke to us about Standing fast, which fell in line with what we had been hearing from Minister Dave all throughout the Fast.

January 2011's Ten Days of Fasting And Praying

From January 7, 2011 through January 16, 2011, we will be fasting and praying.  We will have church services at 8:00 PM each night of the Fast.  The theme of this Fast is "Understanding the Will of God".

Below you can watch each sermon from during the course of this Fast.

Day 1: Sanctify The Congregation

May God Bless You Church,
 
Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly.(Joel 2:15)
 
Church, God has a plan, and that is for all to be one. His desire is that we all come unto the knowledge of the truth, and that we might know why we are saved and what we are saved from. If not we will turn and go right back into that which we were dung up and out of.
 
Tonight God spoke to us about the fast and the conditions of the fast. What is to be concerning members, husband, wives and people in general. The fast is designed to get right in your personal business, that you might know exactly how you look and smell. You see Dear Ones, if no one ever told you that you smell, you will continue to run up in people faces, smiling and don't even know why they are turning their heads. This is the will of God, that we know our condition and He has given unto us the proper tool, which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to fix it. Amen, to fix it, yes to fix you, I and all others who hope to make it into His Kingdom one day. And it will be none but the pure in heart, so prepare to be sanctified. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
There were some out tonight that had not be out for a while and we pray that their faith will not fail them. Our prayer to God is that he will send forth into his vineyard able body people to help build up the Kingdom of God here on earth. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
May we keep in mind, the purpose of the fast; husbands, be as though you have no wife, even though you are married. Wives be as though you have no husband, even though you do have one, because there are some in the midst that are not married and want to be, and it would just be unfair for you to be enjoying married life and your sister or brother is wanting and don't have. God's will is that we all be on one according, fasting and praying as one. One with God, One with Jesus Christ, and One with another. Amen!!!
 
Love to you all,

Day 2: Sanctification

May God Bless You Church,
 
We are have come to the 2nd night of the Ten Days of Fasting and Praying and with the help of the Lord God Almighty, we shall make it all of the way through the 8 more day.
 
Tonight's Sermon is centering on the act of perfecting your walk with God, after giving your hand to the man, and Him your heart. When that happens, you become married to Him through Jesus Christ our Lord. Now just don't think that you are saved to sit down, for there is a process of elimination that is to take place. You must learn how to serve God according to His will. Taking off the flit of the world, cleaning up the inner man, that the sins of the flesh might be destroyed. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Dear Ones, God truly does have a plan and that is once, we have come to Him, we learn how to love one another, in spirit and in truth. NO false love, but true love which is of God. You know Dear Ones, God speaks of brotherly Love, with that you sister should learn something from we the brothers, and that is to love like brothers love. He says to let brotherly love continue; did He not??? Not sisterly love, because you sisters have a strange way of showing love towards each other.
 
It is interesting how that sisters will smile at another sister and then turn to a friend and talk about the other sister as soon as she walks away. Can I get a witness???? You will stand off at a distant, size another up and tell you friend, "you know she ain't all of that", Now if you can't say amen, then just say mercy, because that is what you need the mercies of God that He take you not away in your sinful actions. It is all about loving, Sisters, and not talking about the other, but showing love to the other as is commanded.
 
We did end the message before finishing, and hope to be able to get back to this, if the Lord so be willing, because it is needed. We all need to perfect our relationship with God. To know Him is to love Him, and to love Him is to obey Him.........Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Please remember Mrs. Jackie Gordon of Williamsburg, in your prayers. She has a rare form of cancer that has affected her ability to walk. She can move her feet and legs but there is no feeling there. The doctor has said that she will never walk again, but God has cause the lame to walk before and can very well do it for her in this day and time, if one will only believe. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Listen, let me share this with you, "MAN CANNOT DEFUSE WHAT GOD HAS ORDAINED TO BE"
 
Love to you all,
 
The Pastor

Day 3: A Righteous Request

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
As we close out the weekend, we thank God for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of His Word.
 
Tonight's message was dealing with Solomon and his dream; how that God appeared unto him and asked what could He do for him; "ask what I shall give thee?" God said. Now if God were to ask that today to some of you...........Lord knows, there would be everything first before even thinking of an understanding heart. Money.........the head of your enemy........houses..........land........cars..........you name it. Well what about eternal life? Oh well, some of you would say, and that too, but you did not ask that, you ask for everything else other than eternal life. Can I get a witness???? Just one??? Tell the truth and shame the devil!!
 
Now I took note of how that the long life came with a condition. "if thou wilt walk in My ways, to keep My statutes and My commandments" Now that is interesting!!! All other things God gave unto Solomon, freely, but when it came down to length of days, it was only with condition.
 
Dear Ones, the lesson learn tonight is that an understanding heart to know God's will, is far great than any other. Let us seek to know His will..........and that.......for us as believers. We would be better off, with just a knowledge of His will.
 
We are asking that you will get your petitions in early this Fast, so that on Thursday Night, which is anointing and petition night, you will not be left out, but included. So let's get those in that they might be there and not be trying to get there. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
We had prayer for the kids today, there is something going around that has them sniffing and coughing, so we are asking each of you to join in with us in praying for the little ones. Amen??? Amen, and we thank you.
 
Love to all of you,
 
The Pastor

Day 4: Faith Together With Works Manifest Sincere Love

May God Bless You Church,
 
Praying that all is well with each of you and that your faith fail not.
 
Monday Night Service is normally Work Meeting Night, dealing with the works of the Church. Therefore the message is centered around and on faith and works. Together now Dear Ones, it truly makes know the sincere love of a believer. For what you love you will support. Amen??? AMen!!!
 
Dear Ones, we thank God for the Man and Woman of God, who taught us and gave unto us an understanding of God's Will. When we look at how the operation of the Church is set up, it is without doubt, divine inspiration.
 
The Scripture that is normally read on work meeting night is found in Deuteronomy the 28th chapter, the 1st thru the 14th verse. It lays out the blessing of God if one does obey. The Elder was lead by God to give this to us because it is what will cause he who obeys to be blessed and then in turn able to be a blessing to some one else. Which is the Will of God, in Christ Jesus, concerning all that believe.
 
Church you cannot make it today without God; and He has laid out a plan that does benefit; oh yes, every thing that God has set up to be follow is there to benefit His people, if only they will listen and follow the instructions. There are time and things that are given, that you do not understand, all you have to do is ask God and He will give it to you. A many of times, I have had people in the congregation to say unto me, "Pastor, I was wondering about this thing, and in your message today, you answered my question. Amen......thank God for Jesus, the Saviour of the World.
 
Now speaking of Christ, who preach and talked loving one another, got down and washed His disciples feet, which cause them to be a real part of Him. It manifested that He truly was a Servant of God, sent to teach us who will receive Him, The Will Of God, and to have the understanding of why it is as it is. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
We must Dear Ones, trust God, we must acknowledge Him and He will direct our path. We must give unto Him, even though He does not need anything; it is all to benefit someone else who may not be as well off as you are. Oh the Love Of God, it surpasses the smarts of "Man". Can I get an Amen??? Thank you!!!
 
Listen Church, God is the great I Am and He will sustain you; just trust and obey, for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
 
The Message is coming, so I will end with this. You cannot beat God giving, no matter how hard you try, and you can't beat Him holding back either. We experience that this year here in Williamsburg, when no rain fell and the sun was hot, and no relief was in sight. Things dried up; leave fell off of trees, the fields dried up and the grass became as straw under you feet, crack as you walked and stepped on it. And then the rain came and it appear as if in hours things turned green again. What a Might God He is.........Amen??? AMen!!!
 
I must say, that Deacon Okie Smith, is coming along very well, and thanks to Allison Smith, his grand daughter who came in from California for Christmas, worked with him every day, which caused him to perk up and get back out to Church, after being so helpless, that nurses had to turn him over, wash and clean him; change his bed and all the other things that one must do to keep themselves clean throughout the day and night. Church if one would only trust God.......trust Him and every thing will be alright, because Faith together with Works, does manifest the sincere love of God, which still exist even in this ungodly world of today.
 
Love to you all,
 
The Pastor

Day 5: The Condition Of The Fast

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
And what if some did not believe, shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid!!!(Romans 3:3)
 
Tonight's message was dealing with what is truth and then understanding it to be true. Many did not accept Christ when He came unto them, but those that did, gave He them power to become the sons of God. Oh what a blessings to be called the sons of God. I truly do believe, what about you. And if you believe, do you understand??? I pray that you do, Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Church, if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, according to the preaching of Paul, then you are none of His. Despite what you may feel of believe, God is looking only for the Spirit that Christ had, and if you are without that Spirit (and you can have it) you will not be accepted into the Kingdom of God and with all of the Holy Angles.
 
We thank God for His Grace with brought unto us salvation and is still bring it even today. Regardless of what some folks may say, it is and it is teaching us even today, that we should deny ungodliness and worldly lust. Teaching us that we should live soberly and righteously, even in this present world. Oh yes, even today, in the midst of all of crookedness that is going on, from the White House to the Poor House, we are taught to live righteously. We don't know when He is coming Church, so we must be ready, for in an hour that you think that, Jesus said, the Son of Man will come.
 
We made mention of the family, who's home was destroyed last night and family members were lost in the fire as well. If they had know that the house was to catch fire last night would have stayed with another; but they did not expect such to happen, and yet it did. The same with the coming of Christ, we do not know the day nor the hour, but He is coming, so I am during all that I can to properly prepare you for His coming. One thing is for sure, you will not be able to say, "Lord I did not know", because we are going to Preach the truth, that you might understand that which is truth. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Love to you all, watch and pray always,
 
The Pastor

Day 6: The Power Of The Holy Ghost

May God Bless You Dear Ones,

 
As we travel up this highway to heaven, we will always have bumps from time to time. There will be kicks from time to time, but we must do as Deacon Okie Smith always says...."Press On".
 
In his testimony tonight, he mention how that the very first fast that he took part in was in July of 1940. He has joined the Church Of God, earlier that year and this was his first time fasting and he thanks God for The Church Of God today and he is still fasting and praying. Now church , that was not just yesterday, but as he would say, "it was day before yesterday". Over 70 years of fasting and praying and with the mind to press on. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Tonight the Spirit was speaking on the Power of the Holy Ghost. It is important for each to have, if they expect to enter into the Kingdom of God. No other spirit has the staying power to propel you or carry you the distance. It is going to take the same Spirit that Christ had when He presented it to God before giving up the ghost.(St. Luke 23:46)
 
Listen Dear Ones, there is no other name given among men, whereby we must be saved. For He is the way, the truth and the life. As little DJ Smith, sings the song, "Turn it over to Jesus, and smile the rest of the day". Oh yes, we must give it to Him, and when we do, we are to leave it there and let Him work it out.
 
To have the power, you must have an obedient mind; nothing in the Book, called the Bible should offend you. Don't be as some are, go along for a while and then because of the Word, they get up set and stop. Oh no, we must not stop, turn around or even look back. For if you are to go this way, you must stay focus on the Prize of the High calling of God which is in Christ Jesus. AMen??? Amen!!!
 
If you have not been born of the Spirit, we want to encourage you to seek God during this season of Fasting and Praying, to fill you with His Holy Spirit, known as the Holy Ghost. It is the keeping power. We are saved by the death of Christ, cleansed by His blood and kept by the power of the Holy Ghost. How are we doing Church???
 
Tomorrow is the seventh day of the fast and we do not have testimony, but anointing and prayer. We would like to encourage those of you who have not as of yet to send in your petitions, that we might anoint them, put them in the envelope, seal it and pray over them, that God might grant you your desire. 
 
You know Dear Ones, one of my petition's to God is that He will answer your petition. Now is that not love, Oh yes, love at a higher degree. Do you not know that Jesus Christ did the same thing in His prayer to God??? Oh yes, Father that they may be made perfect in one. In His prayer to God, He ask for what's best for you and I. Oh what Love!!!
 
Please email your petitions in before 7:00pm, so that we can get them in for you. Thank you!!!
 
Love to all of you,
 
The Pastor

Day 10: All Night Prayer Meeting

COMING SOON!

July 2010's Ten Days of Fasting And Praying

From July 9, 2010 through July 19, 2010, we will be fasting and praying.  We will have church services at 8:00 PM each night of the Fast.  The theme of this Fast is "AMEND YOUR WAYS AND YOUR DOINGS, BEFORE GOD!!!".

Below you can watch each sermon from during the course of this Fast.

Day 1: The Condition Of The Fast

Unfortunately the recording is unavailable.

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
But as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation. (I Peter 1:15)
 
Dear Ones, to be holy, means to clean up in mind, body, and soul.  And this is what this Fast and every Ten Days Fast is all about. Pure and simple, cleaning up the inter man.
 
During this Fast, we are to be sanctified and that is through the preaching of the pure Word of God.
 
Tonight, the first evening of the Fast, God spoke to us from Joel, 2:15&16 verses; laying out the Conditions of the fast. What we are to do and what we are to abstain from in order to position ourselves to receive the Holy Spirit of God which is promised afterwards.
 
The Fast Dear Ones, is a time for the Church to get it together. Self examination time; a time to give unto God all of you. The Word of God is going to be preached and it is going to get right down deep into your personal life. It is going to reveal self like never before and this is needed in order to be right with God. WE as the Church cannot be equipped to deal with helping others until we ourselves are perfected. So relax and take it; don't get mad with the preacher, for it is God who knows every thing that you do and say; every thought that enters your mind and what your intent is. So if you are hiding something, just know that doing this fast, it will be revealed. Now remember don't get mad and upset with the preacher, He is just giving you what you need in order to get right with God. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Church the season of Fasting and Praying is not the time for a husband/wife relationship. You see the bridegroom must go forth of his chamber, and the bride, she has to come out of her closet.
If you will turn your attention to I Corinthians 7:5, the Apostle Paul spoke on how that you as a husband/wife are not to deprive one another of the norm except it be with consent for a time. Now if you are in the fast, consenting to being one with everyone else should not be a problem. You are to be one during and in this Fast as those who do not have a husband/wife. God wants us all to be on one according, minding the same things, and that there be no divisions, no divisions, I say no divisions among us, but that we be perfectly joined together, in the same mind and in the same judgment. Amen??? Amen!!! 
 
If you are after church enjoying your wife/husband and there is a brother/sister also in the church, who desire to have a husband/wife and have none, they are without, and you are enjoying yours, then where is the oneness??? where is the minding of the same thing??? Do you get the point??? God expects us all to be on one accord.
 
Now I know that some of you are so much in love and just feel as though you can't do without, but during the fast it is a must. It is only for ten days, and then you are permitted to come together again that Satan tempt you not for your lack of self control. You got it???? If you got then let me hear you say that you got it!!!
 
In the book of Ecclesiastes 3:1-5, we learn that to every thing; every thing there is a season and a time there for every purpose. This is why we have learned that the season of Fasting and Praying is not the time for a husband/wife relationship and you older one know what God is saying here. So just cool it and get on fire for the Lord.
 
Dear Ones, it is very important to attend every service during the fast. God through the Elder Michaux, gave unto us Hebrews 10:23-25, which is to be read after the message. These are instructions/conditions of the fast. We are to hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; we are to consider those who have and those who have not; provoking unto love and good works, by doing good works ourselves, first, I said first. Jesus told Peter, "when thou art converted, then you are to strengthen your brother". You cannot be a help to another if you are not first being obedient to the Conditions of the Fast. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
WE have begun this fast, now let us strive to make every service; we exhort another, by doing the deed ourselves and we do this as we see the day of the promise approaching. For God did say in Joel 2:28&29, of what he would do, but we must fall in line and do it God's way, for He is not going to alter His plan for us, we must do it His way, in order to be blessed of Him. He promised to pour out His Spirit upon all flesh. In order for that to happen all must be on one accord and this is why we have given you the conditions of the fast, that we all may be one. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Love to you all, let us pray: Father in the name of Jesus Christ we come thanking you for all things which Thou hast done, doing and then have plans to do. We thank you for the Ten Days of Fasting and Praying that was given unto us, by the Elder Michaux as a tool to get closer to you. We ask that you will be with us, bless us to be on one accord that after it is all said and done, we will receive of your Holy Spirit, which You promise to give unto us. Father we ask that You will remember those in far away places, who may be fasting along with us, that you might grant unto them a little more grace that they also may be one. Please remember families, that they may stop the fussing and fighting among themselves and love one another as You have loved us; Remember that young person who may have lost their way, that they might find it and be as they once were with You; Watch over us as we travel over the dangerous highway to and from Church and when the end is come, we cannot do anything else but give You the praise for Thou Lord are worthy of all Praise. We love You, we thank You, both now and forever..........together can we all say ......Amen, Amen, And Amen.

Day 2: Rend, Repent and Amend

Rend, Repent and Amend
 
Rend - to tear to pieces
Amend - to rectify, make better, make straight
 
Before starting coupon for free hair cut was given to Bro. Keith although others raised hand.
 
Joel 2: 12-13 God is a jealous God and doesn't want to share you with anyone.  Bro. Keith was asked for the coupon back and then it was split and half given to Keith and half to Bro. Brian who also wanted to initially have it.  God doesn't want a portion of you over here and a portion of you over there.  He wants your whole heart, mind, body and soul, complete dedication during this fast.  He doesn't want to share you with the soap operas or the news paper in the morning, then him at night, he wants all of you during this fast, not to be split in half!
 
Rend your heart, after you have torn that portion of your heart that is filled with flesh out, then turn to God and he will fill you with his spirit and sow you back up again.  Psalm 34:18.  God is nigh to those who are of a broken heart and contrite Spirit.  Do you want God to be nigh to you??
 
God is a gracious God, he shows us daily that he is slow to anger because we see someone committing a sin & then not get punished for it.  Look at how many people we see and know of that are having sex outside of the marriage or people who are not married, yet acting like married people by living under the same roof.  Ecclesiastes 8:11  Just because the punishment doesn't happen right now, they think it is ok to not only continue but even take it a step further.  Just because the punishment doesn't come like a snap of the finger, doesn't mean, it's not coming!
 
Joel 2:14  Who knoweth if God will instead of giving you the punishment and cursing that you rightfully deserve for your actions, what if God because you amended your ways, won't leave you behind a blessing instead??  God is able!
 
Revelations 3: 14-22 God said I know your works Minister Dave, I know your works Elder Mark, I know your works Deacon Kirby, I know your works Deacon Paul, all the way to the back of the church, I know your works Sis. Franceen.  No one is excluded, God knows all of our works.  You can try to lie and hide from man, but you can't lie or hide from God, he knows your works!!  There are people who act Godly while around Godly people, but as soon as they think no one is looking, they go back to their dirt, like a dog returning to it's vomit!  Thank God for being a gracious God, he rebukes and even chastens those in whom he loves, because he is not willing that any should perish, but that all might come to repentance.
 
St. John 5:25  While the blood is running warm in your vein, you have the opportunity to Rend, Repent and Amend your ways.  All we have to do is, just like NIKE said, just do it!

Day 3: The Heart

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
"I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. (Jeremiah 17:10)
 
Tonight's message Dear Ones, was dealing with the heart and the deceitfulness of "it". People can smile in your face and hate your guts. They will shake your hand, tell you that they are doing fine in their marriage, get home and get back to the fussing and fight. Can I get a witness???
 
So tonight, God wants you to know that He knows all about you and your doings and He wants to you amend your ways and your doing before Him. You just cannot hide anything from Him for His Word is quick, it is powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword. He even knows your thoughts afar off and your hearts every intent. So tighten up and get right, because He is watching you. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Please remember each and everyone during this season of Fasting and Praying that they might learn to be truthful and forsake their wrong doings and give their hearts to God who will abundantly pardon. Though the sins maybe dark and red, He will wash you and make you white as snow, pure and wool. But you must be willing and obedient, then and only then will you eat the good of the land. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
And then watch that little but destructive member, for it truly does cause a great deal of destruction.
 
Love to you all,
 
The Pastor

Day 4: Faith and Works

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassion fail not, they are new unto us every morning and then how great is God's faithfulness. Oh what love!!!
 
Tonight was work meeting and God to speak tonight on those two words, "faith" and then "works". Let peanut butter and jelly, they go hand in hand despite who can handle it or not.
 
It is important Dear Ones to have some works, to go along with your faith. A whole lot of praying and doing nothing else is going to get you into the kingdom of heaven. Oh no, you must get busy and work, oh yes work!!!
 
As we learned tonight, some have been raised on their jobs and is still giving God in their offerings, one little bitty old dollar. You are so tight, that you have forgotten who has kept you afloat for all these years and you can not even give God a raise. Listen Church, the devils believe that there is a God and then tremble. You say that you believe that there is a God and yet you are robbing Him..........where, in your tithes and in your offerings.
 
Here some of you have a pocket full of money and have forgotten Him who has blessed you to receive.
 
Love to you all,
 
The Pastor

Day 5: Righteous Living

May God Bless Each Of You,
 
As the song says, "None but the righteous shall see God", and it has been ringing all afternoon in my head. It is important for all to know and understand that it is none but the pure in heart that is going to enter into the place where God's Throne is.
 
It is day five and God is revealing His path for all who claim to be walking with Him. We must manifest Christ in our walk, our talk, and our every day living; for it is righteous living that God requires for all who claim to be His people.
 
As we began tonight's sermon, there was only one scripture but God by His Spirit, was sending down first and then the next. There were  points to be made and it is important to live righteously.
 
One point, was that we are bought with a price; As the songs says, "Jesus paid it all, all to Him I do owe". So we are not our own, we belong to Him and it is He that should get the glory out of our lives and that the devil.
 
Another point that God wanted to make was that "if you have eyes for another man's wife, brother, you have a homosexual attitude" "if you have eyes for another woman's husband, sister, then you likewise have a homosexual attitude". How are we doing Church???
 
Now when you read the Word over there in St. Matthew the 19 chapter, God spoke of how that these twain shall be one flesh. One flesh, Church, one flesh. The two of them are one flesh, so how can you see the woman without seeing the man who is married to the woman. They are one flesh, and what God has joined together, He said, "let not man put asunder". So if you want a wife brother, go get your own and keep your eyes off of the other mans wife. And if you want a husband sister, go get your own, and keep your eyes off of the other woman's husband. Amen??? You get the point??? I pray that you do!!! If not you will burn in hell one day for your unrighteous living.
 
As we end up back over there in I Thessalonians, the point that God is trying to drive home is that we as children of God, must not follow after things of the world but those things which are godly. We are not to defraud anyone in anyway, for the Lord is the avenger of all such.
 
If your wife wants to be with you as your wife, then you cannot deprive her of that, you belong to her........brother. If your husband, sister, desires to kiss you, you cannot turn your head and tell him not to touch you. You belong to him. Did not the minister ask the question, "who giveth this woman to be married to this man"??? and your daddy said.................."I Do", or your parents said, "We do". If they didn't somebody said it. So you were given to him to love, kiss, hug and every other good thing that the law does allow. Amen, brother??? Amen, Sister.......Alright then, give it up!!! Show so love. You couldn't get enough of each other before marriage, now that you are married, you want to defraud one another. God does not like that brother; God does not like that sister and He did say that He is the avenger of all such. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
So you stop your fuss and get along like you did when you first got married. Now that is enough for tonight, we will see if there is some more to this, because this is the life that is pleasing to God Almighty. Remember the theme: Amend your ways and your doings before God. Do you love me????..........well I love you and this is why I am telling you the truth!!!
 
Love to you all,
 
The Pastor

Day 6: Submissive to God

 

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.
 
It is oh so important for us as followers of God to be subject unto Him at His every command. This Dear Ones shows our love for Him, when we hear, and then keep His commandment. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Tonight the Lord spoke to us about what we should do to be pleasing in His sight, and that is to "wash". Now that was not to your Sister, nor your Brother, your Mother or Your Father, but He said, "wash you".
 
Many times we find people that is jumping all over you about what you are suppose to do and they cannot even see themselves. It is sad but it is true!!! Ten thousand instructors in Christ, but not many fathers.
 
We have always stated to the congregation not to be jumping down on the new ones coming in; telling them you must do this, you can't do that. When people come in, and notice you, they will ask and when they ask you give them a reason why you have your head covered.
 
When they look at you in the pureness of walk and desire to be like you, they will pull off, put on, and clean up their way. As the scripture says, "and every man that have this hope, purifies himself even as He, (speaking of Jesus) is pure.
 
You can kill a weak person, with all of your strong words of what they need to do. It takes time to be holy, and if someone was to look closely at you, they will find something in your actions that is not holy and you been here in the Church for years. How are we doing Church??? It is amending time!!!! Not only your ways, but also your doings and that before God, because He sees everything that you do and hears every word that you utter out of your mouth. He even knows your thoughts and the very intent of your heart. So amend your ways and your doings before Him. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Now Dear Ones, we don't want to be like Saul, the first man anointed to be King over God's people. He was given a charged and he fail to follow God precisely as was instructed and because of this, he lost his seat as King.
 
God counted it as rebellion and stubbornness. It is the same when you have been blessed of God on your job to get a raise, and then you don't raise Him in your offerings. You are robbing Him. And then when you think about it, you are stubborn. 
 
Listen Dear Ones, anytime that you have been in the church for 40 years, under the teaching of the truth and still only putting a dollar on the table for your offering, you are stubborn and you are rebelling against the instructions of God. No wonder you are having a hard time. You are robbing God and there is a hole in your pockets. You are making the money, but every time you turn around there is something that is hitting you for a dollar. Your car broke down; washing machine went out; the water heater blew up.  You get the point??? It is because you have robbed God and He has put a hole in your pocket that your money cannot stay, but flow right on out. 
 
Now if you be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land and what God has promised, He is able to fulfill. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
Love to you all,
 
The Pastor

Day 7: God is Real....Still

May God Bless You Dear Ones,
 
For without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
 
Church is is very important to have faith in going the righteous way. Faith is what moves God and He is Real, even today.
 
The sermon tonight dealt with just that, faith; the aim of tonight's message is to build faith in God and we do so through Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour. Amen??? Amen!!!
 
We come to God day in and day out asking, well we learned tonight that we should began to just thank Him for what we have been asking for, because God is Real.....Still!!!
 
God's blessings be upon you all,
 
The Pastor
