  • What Books Are You Reading?

    I have a slew of books, two of which are going to be required reading for me. One of those two is "Renovation of the Heart: Putting on the Character of Christ" by Dallas Willard, and the second is "Unfinished Business:  Returning the Ministry to the People of God" by Greg Ogden. I'm looking forward to reading them when they get here.  I also will be reading the "Kingdom Men" series from Dr. Tony Evans. He has been one of my favorite speakers over the years. His preaching kept me interested in th

    Psalms 119:1-8                                         Sep. 5 - Oct. 2, 2019 1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD. 2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart. 3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways. 4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently. 5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes! 6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments. 7 I

    Peace in the Midst of the Storm

    Matthew 14:22-33 “Peace in the Midst of the Storm.” By Alan   “And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went un

    A Word Fitly Spoken

    I know I am not where I once was in regards to writing devotionals and studies - but I am still studying, and sharing different word studies to encourage and exhort the believers around me. Tonight, the Lord impressed upon me to turn that into a ministry and use what He is teaching me now, even if it is somewhat different than what I used to write. Proverbs 25:11 says, A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. I can go through my emails and texts to my friends s

    Analyzing the Chinese word, 'Righteousness.'

    Analyzing the Chinese word Righteousness 「義的分析」 by Alan Introduction The Chinese written language is very unique. The Chinese words are called, “Characters,” and use a visual, or pictograph, series of lines, called, “strokes,” that represent a word, or a thought, or an action.   In written Chinese, we have an example of the righteousness of God through His Son, the Lord Jesus, in the word, “righteousness.” In Chinese, the word righteousness is written as, 「義」 The Ch

    Joseph and his Jewish Dreams

    Genesis 37:5-11, “Joseph and his Jewish Dreams”   Joseph had faith and loved the Lord God. In the Old Testament, before the Bible was written, God spoke to men in dreams. God had given Joseph dreams. As we read the story of Joseph, we can see that Joseph was like the Lord Jesus. Joseph was a type of Christ. Joseph walked with God and had the characteristics of the Lord Jesus.   Also, Joseph is a good example for the Christian. God gave the examples of the Old Testament men an

    • The point of this topic is NOT to criticize those attending or not attending in person services, but rather to see where our culture is currently at.

      How are you currently attending church services?

    • He maketh me to lie down
      Psalm 23:2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:.........

      From my observations, sheep prefer to lie down in the dirt. Where all they have is grass, they scratch out a bed. When they rise, they immediately defecate and urinate in their bed go about their day and the next night go back to the holes and lie down again. The feces carries the eggs of whatever parasites the sheep may have, which then hatch, climb the blades of grass and are reingested to complete their life cycle. The parasites feed on the sheeps blood and nutrients and make them sick.  The more they eat this, the more their health is compromised. So I can see how a large flock of sheep could foul up an good pasture in a hurry. 

      I don't know much about Biblical shepherds but I'm thinking that, in a semi-arid land such as the land of Israel, a "green pasture" would be too precious a commodity for a shepherd to waste by letting the sheep bed down in one. So I'm thinking that Biblical shepherds, wise ones, would lead the flock to a barren area to lie down so as not to ruin the good, clean grass. Even though we are inclined to lie down in the "dirt" as well, God has enough good pasture, that his children don't need to lie in the filth of the World. He leads us to a green pasture. Open for discussion. 🙂

    • We started our church 5 years ago and have yet to add any deacons. We will add deacon(s) when/if we see the need to. 

      Some visitors to our church do not understand how we operate without having deacon as they come from churches where the deacons control everything in the church. 

      If you have deacons in your church what is there role. I know what the Biblical role is, I'm curious as to how much authority your deacons have.
