Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year
Pastor Tim Elliott

 

December was a full month of activities and fun. Linda Elliott was such a blessing to the ladies at our annual Ladies’ Christmas Party. We had combined Christmas parties with Door of Hope and The Singles Ministry. Our staff enjoyed a Christmas party at Cinergy. We had a blast. Then we thoroughly enjoyed watching “The Heart of Christmas” as a church family. My favorite part of the whole Christmas season was hearing our kids sing Christmas songs to the Lord at our Christmas program “Journey To Bethlehem”. They did an Outstanding job. Everyone has said such positive things about it.

Now we step into 2019. Great things are ahead for us. For one we will welcome the Jubilee Gang this summer for a 3 night family crusade. There will be much more about that later. But mark your calendars for June 30 – July 2. And make sure to bring the entire family.

January 1 is a day that traditionally we make New Year’s resolutions. From losing the holiday weight to exercising. Bible reading fits in there somewhere.

Six Things That Will Strengthen You

By Pastor Tim Elliott
 

Six Things That Will Strengthen You

By Tim Elliott

 

Joshua 1:9   “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

 

God commanded us to be strong. The phrase be strong and of good courage is the Hebrew phrase, “Hazaq Amas”. In verse 18 he adds “Only”. “Raq Hazaq Amas”.

 

My interpretation of this phrase is:

There’s only one way this battle is going to turn out. I’m going to conquer or prevail, because God infuses or fortifies me with His strength. And His strength cannot fail.

 

Glory To God!!!! This became the battle cry of a Champion. God is looking for Champions. Will you be one?

God’s Demand For Your Life

 

By Tim Elliott

 

Micah 6:8 “He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you:

But to do justly,

To love mercy,

And to walk humbly with your God.

 

I love this verse from The Contemporary English Version

 

The Lord God has told us what is right and what He demands:

See that justice is done

Let mercy be your first concern

Humbly obey your God.

 

Micah 7:18 Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever,  because He delights in mercy.

 

Psalm 86:5 For You Lord are good, and READY TO FORGIVE, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.

 

God has three demands that He places on our life.
Number One – do what’s right.
Number Two – Make mercy your first concern.
Number 3 – Humbly obey God.

When you don’t do what’s right, God is abundant in mercy and ready to forgive. We’ll look at that in the life of David a little later. And when someone doesn’t do right to you, God demands that you show mercy and be ready to forgive. That is not always an easy task. But the scripture is clear that we can. We just have to make up our mind that we’re going to humbly obey God in this matter. Let’s take a look at a couple more verses.

Survivors

By Tim Elliott
 
This week I had the honor of preaching at a youth camp. Their theme was “Survivors”. My assignment was to teach the book of Colossians. I found six keys to Survival for your Christian walk. I want to share them with you.
  1. Christian survivors care about lost souls.

This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace. Colossians 1:6 NLT

The good news of Jesus resurrection changed my life and is still changing lives today. Every time I hear about someone who’s life has been totally changed by Jesus Christ it gives me more resolve to continue living for Jesus. Paul said to do the work of an evangelist. Nothing will give you more spiritual energy than seeing someone give their life to Jesus.

The Glorious Church Arising

By Pastor Jacquie Kirkwood
Praise On Fire Missions
 

      Most of those who follow Praise On Fire Missions know that I have been saying for quite some time that the end-time revival has already begun and that it is a “Believer’s Revival”. The spiritual realm is all a-buzz with the activity and moving of the Holy Spirit. Where for years it felt as though we were sitting in a vehicle just idling, sitting still, waiting for the traffic light to change to green, now we are not only moving forward, but accelerating; picking up speed at a very rapid rate. It is a whosoever time and time to get on board
