Day 1: The Fast and It's Constitution


May God Bless You Dear Ones,

"Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly." (Joel 2:15)

With that in mind Dear Ones, our intent is to alarm you all of how serious things are today and why the Trumpet must be blown and the Lord says that is to be done "In Zion". It is clean up and throw out time. Can I get an Amen??? Amen!!!

Listen Dear Ones, The United States of America has a Constitution, that is to be followed and the forefathers arrived to the decision to write "it" after looking at the makeup of God's Church; that which God has put in place for the operation of the body of Christ. Are you following me??? I pray that you are.

So last evening, very lightly, and mildly,.... we have introduce you to what is require of each of you doing the Ten Days of Fasting and Prayer. I said lightly, for things will become more intense as we continue on in the FAST. Now you can bail now, or pull up at the bootstraps (as the old folks would say) sit tight and take it,....and get yourself together; for the day of the Lord is closer than any of us, would believe; And I am Charged with telling you the truth, for the blood of your soul shall not be on me for failing to preach unto you what is needed. Amen Church??? Amen.

Now this I can promise you, that if you will so endure the chastening, ........afterwards it will yield unto you, the peaceable fruit of righteousness.

Love to you all,

The Pastor

Day 2: Love Without Hypocrisy

May God Bless You Saints,

"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 from iniquity." II Timothy 2:19

Tonight Dear Ones, by the power of the Almighty God, we delivered unto the congregation, that same faith (Gospel) that was delivered unto them of yester-years. It is tight and it is right....for the Lord has a better vision of where you are heading then you do, so may we advise you to let Jesus lead you all of the way. Amen??? Amen!!!

The Theme of this Fast is, "The Once Delivered Faith" and the thought for tonight is "Love Without Hypocrisy". Don't act as if you love someone, because your actions does not conform to what the Love of God is. How are we doing Church???

God says that there are many antichrists in the world and there are many, as we have learned tonight, that there are also many anti-lightfoot solomon michauxs in the world as well.

You say you love the man, (The Elder Lightfoot Solomon Michaux) but your actions shows that you don't, for if you did love him and his teachings, then you would no doubt be contending for the same faith(speaking of the doctrine) that he delivered unto us all beginning in 1919. How to get out of sin and then stay out of sin. You are not saved from sin....to sin....but you are saved from sin, never to sin no more. Can I get a witness???

Now Jesus did say that we are to love one another and yet you can't even shake the hand of another, who is attending the same church as you; the one who is in the same group as you. Where is the love??? It is love with hypocrisy, not love without hypocrisy. How can you love one and hate the other. Oh no, not in God's Church....maybe in another but these things, God says, ought not so to be. Oh no, not among His loving people; for by your loving, others will know, without doubt, that you are His disciple. Can I get a witness????

Love to each of you and please keep me in your prayers as I press my way through this FAST

Day 3: Profession verses Confession (Noon Worship Service)


May God Bless You Church,

"Believe not every spirit but try the spirits whether they be of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." I John 4:1

Today's message Dear Ones, centered on Profession Versus Confession. They sound to be the same but are not, truly there is a difference.

Tune in and learn the difference and where you stand if God were to call time.......RIGHT NOW.........where would you spend eternity? WE pray with God, but with many, and it is sad to say, but it will be with the devil and his angels.

Today's message was a bit intense, hot and deep. It may hurt you, but it is the hurt that will help you. Our prayer is that it might open your eyes to see reality and bring about a change. Amen Church??? Amen.

Elder Dan Russell, Sr call early this morning and with the help of the Lord and according to God's Will, is planning to be down with us Sunday coming to close out the Fast as he normally does. Please keep he and his dear wife in your prayers. He is 77 now and still on the road working for the Lord.

Would also like for you to remember the Smith Family as a whole, that God will remove that which is between us and then bring us together again in His Love. Also don't forget to send in your petitions. Please get them to us so that we can put them in, all together in the envelope and seal it with the Cross of Christ and then lay that single Envelope with all of your petitions to God, at the feet of Jesus. Now you want to do this by Wednesday, then we can print them out and place them in on Thursday when we have our anointing and prayer service. If your petition is somewhat personal, then send it to us in a sealed envelope by snail mail....209 Long Hill Road....Williamsburg Va. 23185. Amen??? Amen!!!

Love to you all,

The Pastor 

Day 3: The Qualification of Leaders


May God Bless You Church,

"Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful." I Corinthians 4:1&2

Last evening the Lord had us to center on Leadership and what is require of us as guides of men's soul. As the Elder Michaux, our Founder would say, the feet can smell, but the head must be kept clean. If the head is clean, it can come together and wash the feet. But if the head is all messed up, what will the feet (speaking of the body) have for an example. Amen Dear Ones??? Amen.

Listen Dear Ones, in every employment or position on the job, there are qualifications for that said position; and if you don't qualify, you just don't get the job. Not the right way anyhow; now you can slip your way into that job, or even "sleep" your way into that position on that job, as some have been known to do, but sooner or later your ability to hold that position on the job, will be made know and you will come down or be brought down and another will take you place in that position on that job. Is there a witness out there??? Tell the truth and shame the devil, as the old folk would say. Amen Church??? Amen.

So shall it be with the leaders in the Church, You must have the Holy Ghost to lead holy people. As The Elder would say, "if the Lord didn't call you, the devil surely will stop you." and that through some sought of sin which is a reproach to any people. Amen??? Amen!!!

No person, Dear Ones, has any business in the Church's leadership role, without the Holy Ghost, mainly because they are guides of other men's souls; and what you do as a leader is going to influence someone. Do you get the point? I pray that you do!!!

So please tune in and get it all....Amen??? Amen!!!

Love to you all, and please keep one another in your prayers and keep this commandment......."love ye one another". So saith the Lord Jesus Christ, who is our Lord and Saviour. Amen??? Amen!!!

Day 6: The Immutable Faith


May God Bless You Dear Ones,

"But 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." Hebrews 11:6

Church to please God, we must have faith, that Immutable faith; the unshakeable faith; the faith that is unchangeable; for with God all things are possible. Amen??? Amen!!!

Let us hold fast to the things which we have been taught and which we are assured of, knowing of whom we have learn such richness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; and please don't give up: for if we do, God says that His soul shall find no pleasure in them who turn back to doubtfulness and disbelief. Amen Church??? Amen!!! As Deacon Okie says.........PRESS ON!!!

Love to you all; don't forget to email or mail in your petitions. WE must have them by tomorrow evening in order to place them at the feet of Jesus after anointing and praying over them. Amen??? Amen!!!

Day 1: God's Promise


May God Bless You Dear Ones,


And may heaven smile upon each of you.

The Ten Days of Fasting and Praying has begun, and right out of the gate the message was plain and clear. What God has promised He is able to fulfill. We must not stagger at what He has said, but be as Abraham, for he is our father of faith.

Now to be, listen to me carefully, to be, there must be the Singleness of Mind. We all must come together in the likeness of Jesus Christ and God the Father, in order to be blessed of God and receive the promise. As the song says, "I'm living for the promise that God has promised me". Amen??? Amen!!!

It was interesting how that as I pull out of my driveway, I looked at the time and because I have it set on the 24hr time, it said 19:19 and as I pulled into the Church yard and parked, it said 19:28.

You see Dear Ones, when you have the Singleness of Mind, God will give a confirmation of what is given, no matter who says that it is not so.

The Elder Lightfoot Solomon Michaux, began in the year of 1919 and established The Church Of God, there in Newport News, Va... and in 1928 he came to Williamsburg, Va. and established The Church Of God. We found this to be true from what is documented in the Archives Department of Colonial Williamsburg, of his holding Church Services in a building in the Restored Area from 1928-1931 or maybe into 1933; he then move the congregation down to Newport News to the Church there. In 1998, 70 years later, The Church Of God was REBIRTHED, therefore we have with the Singleness of Mine, The Church Of God At Williamsburg, 209 Long Hill Road Williamsburg, Va.

We Dear Ones, are living the promise of what God had promised years ago. Amen??? Amen!!! Just a bit of History for you to chew on and digest.

Love to you all,

The Pastor

Day 2: Christ's Prayer

May God Bless You Church,

Praying that all is well with each of you as we enter the 2nd Service of the 2nd day of this Ten Days of Our Fasting and Praying. Are you fasting with us??? Are you praying with us??? I pray that you all are in the Singleness of Mind. Amen??? Amen!!!

Tonight we centered on the prayer that Jesus Christ prayed before retuning to the Father from whence He came. And this prayer Dear Ones, sets the record straight on His love for us and the importance of us all being with the oneness of mind. Not different minds, but Singleness of Mind, serving the Lord. Amen??? Amen!!!

I am stressing the importance of your continuous prayers for each other during this fast, for it is needed and needful. Amen Church??? Amen!!!

Please remember the Ministers of the Gospel who are standing before you night in and night out, declaring the truth and nothing but the truth; as Jesus spoke about what is truth, in His prayer to God, in that 17th, chapter of St. John. Making us all one as He and the Father were one.

Day 3: Pure In Heart (Noon Worship Service)


May God Bless You Dear Ones,

In keep with the Theme of the fast, we are maintaining our center point and that is Oneness....

Today's message dealt with being pure in our Hearts. Beginning with a question of those who wanted to see God. Hands went up, but then came the shocker.....you have to be pure in your heart in order to see God, because His Majesty is too great. You cannot even look at the sun with sunglasses and He is greater then the sun.

Moses desire to see His glory, was told that he could not see Him face and live....no man can. Jesus beheld His Glory, because He came from Him and was able to share with us the Beauty of the Lord, by looking at Him.

Well in getting down to the realness of the message, we were lead over to 1 Corinthians 6 and beginning at the 9th verse, of what we are to know, and that is that the unrighteous shall not, can not, inherit the kingdom of God. And that was a question. .....and as Paul said, "Be Not Deceived". Please Dear Ones, don't just think that you are going to enter into God's Holy Kingdom, dressed any sort of way, acting any way that you feel and doing what you feel you can do.....oh no, it is going to be God's way or hell. One or the other and it is you choice. Your heart must be pure in order to see God. No if or ands about it. You must be born of the Spirit and of the Water in order to rise with Jesus, when He comes. Amen??? Amen!!!

Now I want you to notice how that all of the sins that are mentioned by Paul, are all linked together. There are some that refuse to tie homosexually with drunkards. Listen Dear Ones....sin is sin and the soul, the mind, that sins it shall die. Amen??? Amen!!!

Listen, when you use your organ for something other than which God has ordained it for.......consider what I say now.......it is abuse. For a woman to have sex with another woman she uses her tongue in places where the organ of the man is suppose to be used. Do you not know this???? If you don't, I am informing you of it today. Likewise the man, he is using his organ in places that is used for something else. It is sin, Dear Ones, sin, sin, sin and doing so, will bring the wrath of God upon you. Repent.....Repent......Repent.......for the Kingdom of Heaven is closer than you may believe.

It is all sin Church and in order to enter into the Kingdom of God and see Him, we all must have pure hearts. Amen??? Amen!!!

Now some may feel that this is a bit over the edge, but if the gays can parade up and down the streets of America and show their stuff, we ministers of the Gospel need to turn it up a notch or two, and declare the naked truth. Can I get a witness??? Thank you Sister, ...thank you Brother.

Now I hope that I have not become your enemy because I tell you the truth. Somebody need to be bold and stand up and tell it. I must because I have a soul to be saved, and if I see these things and don't tell you of them, then some of you will fall into the state of acceptance as so many others are. Amen??? Amen!!!

Love to you all,

The Pastor 

Day 3: Righteous Unity


May God Bless You Dear Ones,

Just as there is a true, you can always say that there will be a false.

Tonight we centered on the Righteous Unity, showing how,..... right after Noah had peopled the world, once again,... folks wanted to build a city with a tower all the way up to heaven. They were one, but for the wrong reason. God saw this and came down and confounded their speech so that they could not understand what different ones were saying so they left off building the tower and scattered throughout the earth. Interesting isn't it??? I'll Say that it is!!!

So it is important to know that we are to center in on a righteous unification, and not be one in things that are displeasing to God; because He will come down and scatter you. Amen Church??? Amen!!!

Listen Dear Ones, we must as parents stand on the commandments of God and not move, not even for your sweet little child, because they will one day rise up against you, and if you agree with them, you will die spiritually. It will hurt your relationship with God, because He has instructed us all in how to raise our children. We are not to strive with them.....they buck, you are to buck them....and listen the sooner you buck them, the less you will have to buck them with the rod. If you spare the rod, you will spoil the child. Can I get a witness Church??? Thank you Sister!!!

It has been a long day, and we will close with this, let us be stedfast, unmoveable, always be abounding in the work of the Lord, realizing that your labor shall never be in vain, obeying the commandments of God. Amen??? Amen!!!

Love to you all,

Day 4: The Willingness Of Mind

May God Bless You Church,

Praying that all is well with each of you, as we enter into this the 4th day of the Fast.

God has really been opening our eyes to the truth of His Word, causing some to look funny, tighten up the jaws. You know how some folks are with they get hit with something by surprise. Especially when it is revealing them. Can I get a witness???

Tonight the message dealt with the type of mind that you must have in dealing with paying works in the Church. Oh yes, the lights must burn, the A/C must cool and the toilets must flush. All of these things is an expense and in order to pay the bill, we must work together, having The Willingness of Mind, to fulfill all the righteousness of God. Amen??? Amen!!!

Love to you are, please remember Laura Waltrip's husband who has terminal cancer; they need our prayers as she suffer through the hardship that come along with having no insurance.

Thank you and may God richly bless and keep you all in His loving care,

May God Bless You Dear Ones,

In pleasing God we must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Amen Church??? Amen!!!

Tonight the Lord lead us into what so many have had problems with; and that is dying in self that the power of Christ my rest, rule and abide within.

God is holy Dear Ones, and if we are looking to go into His Kingdom, then we need to be cleansed both in and out that we may be HOLY. Oh no, God is not going to accept anything less than Jesus Christ. So tighten up and get right, for if you fail to do so, your soul will be turned into hell. Amen??? Amen!!!

We must deny ourselves and take up the cross.....our cross and follow Him all the way from earth to Glory.

Remember to continue the prayers....for people all around the world, for there is trouble here and there.

Day 6: The Divine Order

May God Bless You Dear Ones,

"But if any man be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God." (I Corin. 11:16)

Church, God has an order for us all.......may we be men, women, boys, or girls......there is an order and it is "Divine". Now "I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor anything taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him." (Ecclesiastes 3:14) So don't mess with "The Divine Order" as "it" has been delivered unto you. Amen??? Amen!!!

Now in this Divine Order, Paul lays it all out: and tonight as the Lord lead, we have laid it all out for each of you: and that does include me as well. Now if you are looking for happiness and peace of mind, then may I encourage each of you, to be ye followers of me even as I am also of Christ, who is my head. Can I get an Amen Church??? Amen!!! It is all God's plan and as The Pastor, I must deliver "it" speaking of the plan...... unto all of you. Amen??? Amen!!!

Now there is much in this message and if what is spoken about, is not happening, ....today.......or has not happen, then it would not have been laid out back then nor would it be.......laid out..... tonight. Amen Church??? Amen.

I would like to thank each of you for your continual prayers for those requesting our prayers for their family members, and themselves, who are under attack in the body by satan. Your prayers are making a difference. And thank you for your advice of what to do in certain situations. As Paul stated in the II Corin. 1:6, "And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation." What we go through, is not always because of us, but for someone else, whom,..... will cross our paths and because we have been through "it", so can we speak to that which they are going through. Oh Glory, What a Plan........Thank God For Jesus........Who has it all in control. Can someone please say Amen??? Thank you!!!

Take care and remember the promise written in Joel 2:28, "and it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh" God said it, Jesus did it, I believe it, and that settles it. So saith the sister in Washington DC years ago. Amen.

Love to you all,


The Pastor

Day 8: The Foundation Of God


May God Bless You Dear Ones,

“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

Last evening, we centered on the foundation that was laid for us in 1919 by the Elder Lightfoot Solomon Michaux and his Lovely Wife, Sister Mary E. Michaux. And that foundation was built upon the Word of God.

Much happen after their decease: changes have been made, but there are some who has and is still, I say, is still, holding firm to the teachings and it is they who are the true followers, for their works do manifest this to be true. Can I get a witness Church??? Thank you!!!

Now this message gets a little deep, going way back and bringing us up to speed with what was, and what is today.

Love to you all, for here we are closing out the 8th day. Thank God for his unspeakable love and compassion,

The Pastor
