If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”

It’s an inside job!
BIBLE MEDITATION:
Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
Matthew 23:26
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
What happens when we try to help others? In today’s mindset, we start on the outside, thinking if we can change their environment (their home, clothes, food, education), then we can create a new person. It cannot be done. It was in the Garden of Eden—the most perfect environment—that mankind got into trouble in the first place.
Cleaning up the outside is just reformation. When you clean up the inside—the heart, mind, and spirit—the person is regenerated. Jesus is telling the Pharisees in this verse that they don’t need another bath, they need another birth—a new birth.
ACTION POINT:
It’s not that we ought not to help others. We should. But people need more than soap and soup; they need salvation. They need a birth from above, not merely a boost from below. Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with your neighbor is the best “social work” you can do.

Whom, When, How to Deliver
“The LORD knoweth how to deliver the Godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished”   (2 Peter 2:9).

The godly are tempted and tried. That is not true faith which is never put to the test. But the godly are delivered out of their trials, and that not by chance, nor by secondary agencies, but by the LORD Himself. He personally undertakes the office of delivering those who trust Him. God loves the godly or godlike, and He makes a point of knowing where they are and how they fare.

Sometimes their way seems to be a labyrinth, and they cannot imagine how they are to escape from threatening danger. What they do not know, their LORD knows. He knows whom to deliver, and when to deliver, and how to deliver. He delivers in the way which is most beneficial to the godly, most crushing to the tempter, and most glorifying to Himself. We may leave the “how” with the LORD and be content to rejoice in the fact that He will, in some way or other, bring His own people through all the dangers, trials, and temptations for this mortal life to His own right hand in glory.

This day it is not for me to pry into my LORD’s secrets but patiently to wait His time, knowing this, that though I know nothing, my heavenly Father knows.

He hath acquainted himself with my beaten path. When he hath searched me out, I shall come out shining (Job 23:10, free translation).
“Faith grows amid storms” — just four words, but oh, how full of import to the soul who has been in the storms!
Faith is that God-given faculty which, when exercised, brings the unseen into plain view, and by which the impossible things are made possible. It deals with supernaturals. But it “grows amid storms”; that is, where there are disturbances in the spiritual atmosphere. Storms are caused by the conflicts of elements; and the storms of the spiritual world are conflicts with hostile elements. In such an atmosphere faith finds its most productive soil; in such an element it comes more quickly to full fruition.
The staunchest tree is not found in the shelter of the forest, but out in the open where the winds from every quarter beat upon it, and bend and twist it until it becomes a giant in stature this is the tree which the mechanic wants his tools made of, and the wagon-maker seeks.
So in the spiritual world, when you see a giant, remember the road you must travel to come up to his side is not along the sunny lane where wild flowers ever bloom; but a steep, rocky, narrow pathway where the blasts of hell will almost blow you off your feet; where the sharp rocks cut the flesh, where the projecting thorns scratch the brow, and the venomous beasts hiss on every side.
It is a pathway of sorrow and joy, of suffering and healing balm, of tears and smiles, of trials and victories, of conflicts and triumphs, of hardships and perils and buffetings, of persecutions and misunderstandings, of troubles and distress; through all of which we are made more than conquerors through Him who loves us.
“Amid storms.” Right in the midst where it is fiercest. You may shrink back from the ordeal of a fierce storm of trial…but go in! God is there to meet you in the center of all your trials, and to whisper His secrets which will make you come forth with a shining face and an indomitable faith that all the demons of hell shall never afterwards cause to waver.

Happy Sunday Morning Friends:
It is just after 5AM, I just finished lifting up my morning Prayers
to my GOD in Heaven and He placed it upon my heart to be sure
that you knew this:
I ASSURE you that it is straight from Him and that He wanted me to tell YOU!
As you can see, this morning’s Blog is entitled:
“You Are A Wanted Child!”
Here is the simple message that GOD placed upon my heart to tell you:
1.) GOD Truly does LOVE YOU;
2.) He wants you to be in Heaven with Him when you die;
3.) But there is a PROBLEM: Since Adam & Eve’s BIG mistake,
   the entire Human Race has been infected with a disease,
   And there is ONLY ONE CURE!
   If you don’t get cured of this disease, you cannot get into Heaven with GOD:
   The disease is SIN, The ONLY cure for it is Jesus Christ.
   See, GOD is the Sovereign King and Creator of the Universe.
   He sets the Rules!
   His Rule is that you cannot have the Disease called Sin and get into Heaven for Eternity;
   If you die without the only Cure: Jesus Christ: You will be Eternally separated
   from GOD and at the Great White Throne Judgment,
   described in Revelation Chapter 20,
   if you still have that Disease, Angels will take you and toss you into
   the Lake of Fire… for Eternity, there will be no end.
   On the other hand, if you accept the Cure that our Sovereign GOD
   has provided, you will spend Eternity in Heaven, with Him!
   Again: GOD does LOVE you and He wants you in Heaven with Him!
   Over 2,000 years ago, GOD showed His Mercy upon the entire Human Race
   by sending His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the CURE for the Disease, to Shed His
   Sin-Free Blood and Die on that Cross outside of Jerusalem
   as Payment, the CURE for your sins, ALL of them!
   You will be Cured of the disease if, on Faith:
      (That is: Just BELIEVE this Cure because GOD Said it is the Cure:
   Faith is NOT a feeling or emotion, it is just a belief in GOD’s Promises!
   John 3:16 makes it Very Clear:
      FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN
      SON, THAT WHOSOEVER (YOU) BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL HAVE
      EVERLASTING (ETERNAL) LIFE!)
Now: Here is what our Sovereign GOD has Ruled regarding that word:
BELIEVETH IN HIM:
1.) Believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross at Calvary in payment for your Sins,
ALL OF THEM;
2.) Believe that His Dead Body was placed in a Borrowed Tomb;
3.) That He Arose from the Dead (Was Resurrected) on the 3rd Day
We now call Easter;
4.) Was seen by over 500 people here on earth after His Resurrection and;
5.) Ascended back into Heaven in front of the Galileans;
(Acts 1:9-12)
6.)To sit upon His Throne at the Right-Hand of GOD His/our Father,
As our High Priest, Advocate, LORD and Savior.
If you believe that, on Faith, and will say this simple Prayer:
LORD, I confess that I am a sinner,
By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal LORD & Savior,
I Repent of all of my sins and ask You to forgive my sins,
I give control of my life over to Jesus,
In Jesus’ Precious Name I Pray,
Amen.
It is so simple, if you said that Prayer and truly meant it,
You now are Cured of the Disease called sin and have your
Lifetime Ticket, AS OF RIGHT NOW,
Into Heaven!
You have been Born Again, Spiritually, into the Kingdom of Heaven!
Welcome!
Now: Find a good Christian Church near where you live,
Attend regularly and Worship with your fellow Christians,
Start reading & studying your Bible:
The Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word of GOD,
Pray OFTEN to Him by telling Him that:
1.) You Adore Him,
2.) Confess your sins to Him, because, although you have
been forgiven of your sins, you are STILL going to occasionally sin,
But, as a Born-Again Christian, you will not enjoy it and,
You will fall out of Fellowship with Him if you don’t confess your sins
to Him and ask forgiveness: You STILL have your place in Heaven,
You can NEVER lose that once you have accepted Jesus
As your Personal Savior, but you should daily, Pray to GOD, in the Name of Jesus,
And confess and ask forgiveness of you sins.
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Please see the 10 Commandments: Exodus Chapter 20:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
3.) Thank Him for the Blessings you have received;
4.) Although He already knows it: Tell Him about your needs
And Thank Him for providing them for you, in other words:
Pray with the Faith that GOD will provide all of those needs
For yourself and others that you Pray for!
Thank you for taking the time to read this message that The LORD
placed upon my heart this morning!
Please feel free to copy and forward this Plan of Salvation to any and all of your Contacts:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Luke 9:26 and Mark 8:38
If anyone is Ashamed of Me on earth, I shall be ashamed of him in Heaven.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(We HAVE to tell others about Jesus: He commanded us in The Great Commission:
In Mark 16:14–18, Luke 24:44–49, Acts 1:4–8, and John 20:19–23. As Jesus
was ascending back into Heaven, He told the disciples to preach repentance and forgiveness,
and promised that they will have divine power.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
The Only Cure for the Disease that the entire Human Race has:
Jesus Christ, The Savior of the World!

Today, we are starting a Weekly feature called:
“A Word From Casey!”
Dr. Winfield Casey Jones is a Retired Pastor from the First Presbyerian Church of Pearland, TX, He can be reached at: wrjones2002@gmail.com

Do Not Fear Those Who Can Kill Only the Body

December 07, 2017

What if someone broke into your house and threatened to kill you? How do you think you or I might react?

What if you were about to be killed because of your faith in Christ? What do you think you would say or do?

Or what if the fears of some came true, and the nuclear bombs began to fall?  How do you think we would respond? Does the Bible have anything to say to us about such horrible and catastrophic events?

Earlier this week I read a scripture in which Jesus specifically addresses such fears. (I had not read it in a while, and it got my attention precisely because I myself have feared the kinds of things I just mentioned.)  Jesus said, “And do not fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can kill both body and soul in hell.” (Matthew 10:28).

These words of Jesus are sobering to say the least. But they are also comforting!

Imagine you were a Christian in a part of the world where some people wanted to kill you just because you believed Jesus is the Son of God. Your potential persecutors would of course want you to fear them, but would they have ever heard this verse where Jesus says not to fear those who can kill only the body but instead to fear only Him who can destroy both body and soul in hell? (Then your persecutors would be the ones who should be afraid for what they are about to do!)

Persecution, and even being killed for our faith, can happen in America. Christians have been shot in church worshipping God. It happened at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, S.C. and at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.  Be honest. Have you feared that? Could such a fear keep you from going to church? Jesus says that a crazy shooter could kill your body but not your soul, and for that reason you should not fear such a person! He says you and I should fear only the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell.

Morning …

1 Thessalonians 5:6
Let us not sleep, as do others.

There are many ways of promoting Christian wakefulness. Among the rest, let me strongly advise Christians to converse together concerning the ways of the Lord. Christian and Hopeful, as they journeyed towards the Celestial City, said to themselves, “To prevent drowsiness in this place, let us fall into good discourse.” Christian enquired, “Brother, where shall we begin?” And Hopeful answered, “Where God began with us.” Then Christian sang this song-

“When saints do sleepy grow, let them come hither,
And hear how these two pilgrims talk together;
Yea, let them learn of them, in any wise,
Thus to keep open their drowsy slumb’ring eyes.
Saints’ fellowship, if it be managed well,
Keeps them awake, and that in spite of hell.”

Christians who isolate themselves and walk alone, are very liable to grow drowsy. Hold Christian company, and you will be kept wakeful by it, and refreshed and encouraged to make quicker progress in the road to heaven. But as you thus take “sweet counsel” with others in the ways of God, take care that the theme of your converse is the Lord Jesus. Let the eye of faith be constantly looking unto Him; let your heart be full of Him; let your lips speak of His worth. Friend, live near to the cross, and thou wilt not sleep. Labour to impress thyself with a deep sense of the value of the place to which thou art going. If thou rememberest that thou art going to heaven, thou wilt not sleep on the road. If thou thinkest that hell is behind thee, and the devil pursuing thee, thou wilt not loiter. Would the manslayer sleep with the avenger of blood behind him, and the city of refuge before him? Christian, wilt thou sleep whilst the pearly gates are open-the songs of angels waiting for thee to join them-a crown of gold ready for thy brow? Ah! no; in holy fellowship continue to watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

God continues to bless Sagemont Church.  In the last two Sundays, over 100 people have made public decisions to make Jesus Christ Lord of their life.  Pastors Chuck Schneider, Stuart Rothberg, and Jim Hastings have been teaching the scriptures as both the Old and New Testaments prophesy and proclaim that Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth again to claim and receive His children unto Himself.  During the worship services, I am preaching the message and promise of the return of Christ.

One may ask, “Pastor, why do you passionately believe that Jesus is literally going to return to the earth?”  These are a few reasons:

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

  1.  Jesus said He would!  John 14:3 “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
  2.  The entire Christian view of history demands it.
  3. The prophetic signs found in scripture are now clearly being fulfilled.
  • Earthquakes all over the globe.  Matthew 24:7 – (over 20,000 since 1971)
  • Hearts will fail for fear.  Luke 21:26 –  Suicides are epidemic.
  • Great explosions of learning.  II Timothy 3:7 – People cannot discern the truth.
  • Immorality abounds.  Luke 17:26-27 – Like the days of Noah.

Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus will come to save His children and judge the rest.

God and Churchill

godchurchillI have just completed reading one of the best books that I have read in the last twenty years.  God and Churchill, written by one of our newest Sagemont members Jonathan Sandys (pronounced “sands”), great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.  Wallace Henley, staff member at Second Baptist Church, Houston, assisted Jonathan in this profound book.  The purpose of the book is to make clear “how the great leader’s sense of divine destiny changed his troubled world and offers help for ours.”  Tyndale Momentum is the publisher.  The book has many profound quotes.  However, there is one that has impacted my life more than many others.  Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, addressing the Church of Scotland General Assembly in 1988, said “I think back to many discussions in my early life when we all agreed that if you try to take the fruits of Christianity without its roots, the fruits will wither.  And they will not come back unless you nurture the roots.”

One of the responsibilities of the Bride of Christ, the Church, is to keep Christianity on track and prevent the derailing of His ultimate purpose.  The paganism that is engulfing us today will ultimately destroy us unless we return to the roots of our faith.  “Our faith is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”  It is on the solid rock we must stand for truly all other ground is sinking sand.

Note:  The book God and Churchill is available in the Sagemont Bookstore.

My FB Response to a statement from a Reader of my Blog. # 2738

Facebook Response to:

Allison’s Comment:
“This is not a place to push your church on people”
(Regarding my blog:
www.ourdailybread101.com)

Allison: Thank you for your comment.
May GOD Bless you!
I have been publishing this blog
every night since 12/2011, am a
78-year-young Vietnam Vet and
am not pushing anything but Jesus
Christ and the Cross, the ONLY way
into Heaven.
I hope you will at least read/listen to
some of my 2,737 blogs over the past 7+ years!
Allison, I hope you know that GOD loves you
and He wants you to be in Heaven with Him…
BUT there’s a Problem: Since Adam & Eve
committed the 1st sin, the Human Race has been infected
with a Disease…and there is Only One Cure:
The Disease: Sin;
The Only Cure: Jesus Christ.
To get into Heaven instead of Hell, You must
do 3 things:
1.) Repent of your sins, i.e., change your ways;
2.) By Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior;
3.) Obey Him and follow His Commands in the Bible, the 2 Most Important Commands being:
  > Worship GOD the Father with
      all of your heart, mind & soul;
  > Love your Neighbor as much
      as you love yourself.
If you can lift up a Prayer to GOD telling Him:
Lord, I confess that I have been a sinner since I was
conceived in my Mother’s womb, thank You for sending Your Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ to shed His Blood and die on the Cross at Calvary for my sins and for the sins of the entire Human Race, if they will only Believe;
 Lord, by Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal Savior and give Him complete control of my life for as long as I live, in Jesus’
Name I Pray, Amen
Allison, if you can lift up that Prayer and mean it, you
have been what Jesus calls “Born Again!”
The Spirit within you has been Re-Born and you now
will have Eternal Life in Heaven and your name will be
written in the Lamb’s Book of Life instead of separated
from Him for Eternity. Please look at what happens to
EVERYONE whose name is NOT written in that Book:
It is found in the Holy Bible in the Book of The Revelation:
(Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)
“Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”

If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”

Insight—your reward for obedience!
BIBLE MEDITATION:
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of My Father I have made known unto you.
John 15:15
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
What is the blessing of obedience? Intimacy with God. You will come to know things that you could never know any other way when you become intimate with God. And yet people are still asking, “How do I understand the Bible?” Friend, you will have a knowledge that surpasses anything you could gain from a school of learning when you serve the Lord in obedience.
Jesus said that we become His friends when we become His servants. And a friend knows all things. Amos 3:7 says, “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets.”
ACTION POINT:
Have you stopped growing? Perhaps it’s because you’ve stopped obeying. The way to have insight into the heart of God is through obedience.

Never Separated from God
“And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believeth thou this?”  
(John 11:26).

Yes, LORD, we believe it; we shall never die. Our soul may be separated from our body, and this is death of a kind; but our soul shall never be separated from God, which is the true death — the death which was threatened to sin — the death penalty which is the worst that can happen. We believe this most assuredly, for who shall separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our LORD? We are members of the Body of Christ; will Christ lose parts of His Body? We are married to Jesus; will He be bereaved and widowed? It is not possible. There is a life within us which is not capable of being divided from God: yea, and the Holy Spirit dwells within us, and how then can we die? Jesus, Himself, is our life, and therefore there is no dying for us, for He cannot die again, In Him we died unto sin once, and the capital sentence cannot a second time be executed. Now we live, and live forever. The reward of righteousness is life everlasting, and we have nothingless than the righteousness of God, and therefore can claim the very highest reward.

Living and believing, we believe that we shall live and enjoy. Wherefore we press forward with full assurance that our life is secure in our living Head.

It came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land (1 Kings 17:7).
Week after week, with unfaltering and steadfast spirit, Elijah watched that dwindling brook; often tempted to stagger through unbelief, but refusing to allow his circumstances to come between himself and God. Unbelief sees God through circumstances, as we sometimes see the sun shorn of his rays through smoky air; but faith puts God between itself and circumstances, and looks at them through Him.
And so the dwindling brook became a silver thread; and the silver thread stood presently in pools at the foot of the largest boulders; and the pools shrank. The birds fled; the wild creatures of field and forest came no more to drink; the brook was dry. Only then to his patient and unwavering spirit, “the word of the Lord came, saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath.”
Most of us would have gotten anxious and worn with planning long before that. We should have ceased our songs as soon as the streamlet caroled less musically over its rocky bed; and with harps swinging on the willows, we should have paced to and fro upon the withering grass, lost in pensive thought. And probably, long ere the brook was dry, we should have devised some plan, and asking God’s blessing on it, would have started off elsewhere.
God often does extricate us, because His mercy endureth forever; but if we had only waited first to see the unfolding of His plans, we should never have found ourselves landed in such an inextricable labyrinth; and we should never have been compelled to retrace our steps with so many tears of shame.
Wait, patiently wait!
–F. B. Meyer

Happy Sunday Morning Friends:
It is just after 5AM, I just finished lifting up my morning Prayers
to my GOD in Heaven and He placed it upon my heart to be sure
that you knew this:
I ASSURE you that it is straight from Him and that He wanted me to tell YOU!
As you can see, this morning’s Blog is entitled:
“You Are A Wanted Child!”
Here is the simple message that GOD placed upon my heart to tell you:
1.) GOD Truly does LOVE YOU;
2.) He wants you to be in Heaven with Him when you die;
3.) But there is a PROBLEM: Since Adam & Eve’s BIG mistake,
   the entire Human Race has been infected with a disease,
   And there is ONLY ONE CURE!
   If you don’t get cured of this disease, you cannot get into Heaven with GOD:
   The disease is SIN, The ONLY cure for it is Jesus Christ.
   See, GOD is the Sovereign King and Creator of the Universe.
   He sets the Rules!
   His Rule is that you cannot have the Disease called Sin and get into Heaven for Eternity;
   If you die without the only Cure: Jesus Christ: You will be Eternally separated
   from GOD and at the Great White Throne Judgment,
   described in Revelation Chapter 20,
   if you still have that Disease, Angels will take you and toss you into
   the Lake of Fire… for Eternity, there will be no end.
   On the other hand, if you accept the Cure that our Sovereign GOD
   has provided, you will spend Eternity in Heaven, with Him!
   Again: GOD does LOVE you and He wants you in Heaven with Him!
   Over 2,000 years ago, GOD showed His Mercy upon the entire Human Race
   by sending His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the CURE for the Disease, to Shed His
   Sin-Free Blood and Die on that Cross outside of Jerusalem
   as Payment, the CURE for your sins, ALL of them!
   You will be Cured of the disease if, on Faith:
      (That is: Just BELIEVE this Cure because GOD Said it is the Cure:
   Faith is NOT a feeling or emotion, it is just a belief in GOD’s Promises!
   John 3:16 makes it Very Clear:
      FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN
      SON, THAT WHOSOEVER (YOU) BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL HAVE
      EVERLASTING (ETERNAL) LIFE!)
Now: Here is what our Sovereign GOD has Ruled regarding that word:
BELIEVETH IN HIM:
1.) Believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross at Calvary in payment for your Sins,
ALL OF THEM;
2.) Believe that His Dead Body was placed in a Borrowed Tomb;
3.) That He Arose from the Dead (Was Resurrected) on the 3rd Day
We now call Easter;
4.) Was seen by over 500 people here on earth after His Resurrection and;
5.) Ascended back into Heaven in front of the Galileans;
(Acts 1:9-12)
6.)To sit upon His Throne at the Right-Hand of GOD His/our Father,
As our High Priest, Advocate, LORD and Savior.
If you believe that, on Faith, and will say this simple Prayer:
LORD, I confess that I am a sinner,
By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal LORD & Savior,
I Repent of all of my sins and ask You to forgive my sins,
I give control of my life over to Jesus,
In Jesus’ Precious Name I Pray,
Amen.
It is so simple, if you said that Prayer and truly meant it,
You now are Cured of the Disease called sin and have your
Lifetime Ticket, AS OF RIGHT NOW,
Into Heaven!
You have been Born Again, Spiritually, into the Kingdom of Heaven!
Welcome!
Now: Find a good Christian Church near where you live,
Attend regularly and Worship with your fellow Christians,
Start reading & studying your Bible:
The Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word of GOD,
Pray OFTEN to Him by telling Him that:
1.) You Adore Him,
2.) Confess your sins to Him, because, although you have
been forgiven of your sins, you are STILL going to occasionally sin,
But, as a Born-Again Christian, you will not enjoy it and,
You will fall out of Fellowship with Him if you don’t confess your sins
to Him and ask forgiveness: You STILL have your place in Heaven,
You can NEVER lose that once you have accepted Jesus
As your Personal Savior, but you should daily, Pray to GOD, in the Name of Jesus,
And confess and ask forgiveness of you sins.
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Please see the 10 Commandments: Exodus Chapter 20:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
3.) Thank Him for the Blessings you have received;
4.) Although He already knows it: Tell Him about your needs
And Thank Him for providing them for you, in other words:
Pray with the Faith that GOD will provide all of those needs
For yourself and others that you Pray for!
Thank you for taking the time to read this message that The LORD
placed upon my heart this morning!
Please feel free to copy and forward this Plan of Salvation to any and all of your Contacts:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Luke 9:26 and Mark 8:38
If anyone is Ashamed of Me on earth, I shall be ashamed of him in Heaven.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(We HAVE to tell others about Jesus: He commanded us in The Great Commission:
In Mark 16:14–18, Luke 24:44–49, Acts 1:4–8, and John 20:19–23. As Jesus
was ascending back into Heaven, He told the disciples to preach repentance and forgiveness,
and promised that they will have divine power.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
The Only Cure for the Disease that the entire Human Race has:
Jesus Christ, The Savior of the World!

Today, we are starting a Weekly feature called:
“A Word From Casey!”
Dr. Winfield Casey Jones is a Retired Pastor from the First Presbyerian Church of Pearland, TX, He can be reached at: wrjones2002@gmail.com

Do Not Fear Those Who Can Kill Only the Body

December 07, 2017

What if someone broke into your house and threatened to kill you? How do you think you or I might react?

What if you were about to be killed because of your faith in Christ? What do you think you would say or do?

Or what if the fears of some came true, and the nuclear bombs began to fall?  How do you think we would respond? Does the Bible have anything to say to us about such horrible and catastrophic events?

Earlier this week I read a scripture in which Jesus specifically addresses such fears. (I had not read it in a while, and it got my attention precisely because I myself have feared the kinds of things I just mentioned.)  Jesus said, “And do not fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can kill both body and soul in hell.” (Matthew 10:28).

These words of Jesus are sobering to say the least. But they are also comforting!

Imagine you were a Christian in a part of the world where some people wanted to kill you just because you believed Jesus is the Son of God. Your potential persecutors would of course want you to fear them, but would they have ever heard this verse where Jesus says not to fear those who can kill only the body but instead to fear only Him who can destroy both body and soul in hell? (Then your persecutors would be the ones who should be afraid for what they are about to do!)

Persecution, and even being killed for our faith, can happen in America. Christians have been shot in church worshipping God. It happened at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, S.C. and at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.  Be honest. Have you feared that? Could such a fear keep you from going to church? Jesus says that a crazy shooter could kill your body but not your soul, and for that reason you should not fear such a person! He says you and I should fear only the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell.

Morning …

1 Thessalonians 5:6
Let us not sleep, as do others.

There are many ways of promoting Christian wakefulness. Among the rest, let me strongly advise Christians to converse together concerning the ways of the Lord. Christian and Hopeful, as they journeyed towards the Celestial City, said to themselves, “To prevent drowsiness in this place, let us fall into good discourse.” Christian enquired, “Brother, where shall we begin?” And Hopeful answered, “Where God began with us.” Then Christian sang this song-

“When saints do sleepy grow, let them come hither,
And hear how these two pilgrims talk together;
Yea, let them learn of them, in any wise,
Thus to keep open their drowsy slumb’ring eyes.
Saints’ fellowship, if it be managed well,
Keeps them awake, and that in spite of hell.”

Christians who isolate themselves and walk alone, are very liable to grow drowsy. Hold Christian company, and you will be kept wakeful by it, and refreshed and encouraged to make quicker progress in the road to heaven. But as you thus take “sweet counsel” with others in the ways of God, take care that the theme of your converse is the Lord Jesus. Let the eye of faith be constantly looking unto Him; let your heart be full of Him; let your lips speak of His worth. Friend, live near to the cross, and thou wilt not sleep. Labour to impress thyself with a deep sense of the value of the place to which thou art going. If thou rememberest that thou art going to heaven, thou wilt not sleep on the road. If thou thinkest that hell is behind thee, and the devil pursuing thee, thou wilt not loiter. Would the manslayer sleep with the avenger of blood behind him, and the city of refuge before him? Christian, wilt thou sleep whilst the pearly gates are open-the songs of angels waiting for thee to join them-a crown of gold ready for thy brow? Ah! no; in holy fellowship continue to watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

God continues to bless Sagemont Church.  In the last two Sundays, over 100 people have made public decisions to make Jesus Christ Lord of their life.  Pastors Chuck Schneider, Stuart Rothberg, and Jim Hastings have been teaching the scriptures as both the Old and New Testaments prophesy and proclaim that Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth again to claim and receive His children unto Himself.  During the worship services, I am preaching the message and promise of the return of Christ.

One may ask, “Pastor, why do you passionately believe that Jesus is literally going to return to the earth?”  These are a few reasons:

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

  1.  Jesus said He would!  John 14:3 “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
  2.  The entire Christian view of history demands it.
  3. The prophetic signs found in scripture are now clearly being fulfilled.
  • Earthquakes all over the globe.  Matthew 24:7 – (over 20,000 since 1971)
  • Hearts will fail for fear.  Luke 21:26 –  Suicides are epidemic.
  • Great explosions of learning.  II Timothy 3:7 – People cannot discern the truth.
  • Immorality abounds.  Luke 17:26-27 – Like the days of Noah.

Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus will come to save His children and judge the rest.

God and Churchill

godchurchillI have just completed reading one of the best books that I have read in the last twenty years.  God and Churchill, written by one of our newest Sagemont members Jonathan Sandys (pronounced “sands”), great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.  Wallace Henley, staff member at Second Baptist Church, Houston, assisted Jonathan in this profound book.  The purpose of the book is to make clear “how the great leader’s sense of divine destiny changed his troubled world and offers help for ours.”  Tyndale Momentum is the publisher.  The book has many profound quotes.  However, there is one that has impacted my life more than many others.  Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, addressing the Church of Scotland General Assembly in 1988, said “I think back to many discussions in my early life when we all agreed that if you try to take the fruits of Christianity without its roots, the fruits will wither.  And they will not come back unless you nurture the roots.”

One of the responsibilities of the Bride of Christ, the Church, is to keep Christianity on track and prevent the derailing of His ultimate purpose.  The paganism that is engulfing us today will ultimately destroy us unless we return to the roots of our faith.  “Our faith is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”  It is on the solid rock we must stand for truly all other ground is sinking sand.

Note:  The book God and Churchill is available in the Sagemont Bookstore.

Do you pray confidently?
BIBLE MEDITATION:
To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him.
Daniel 9:9
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
The closer we get to God, the more we realize how insignificant and how sinful we are. This is not a time for finger-pointing in our nation. This is a time for repentance of personal sin. I’m talking about repentance among God’s people.
Daniel is talking about God’s greatness, power, righteousness, and mercy. That is the basis for our prayer. Isn’t it wonderful that “to God belong mercies and forgiveness”? It is impossible to see who our great God is in a time of crisis and not want to pray. We can pray with confidence for this very reason.
It is prayer time in America. It is time for all people who know our God, whomever they may be, to seek the face of God in prayer. I believe that with all my heart. We need to set ourselves in prayer.
ACTION POINT:
We need to pray, “God, cleanse us, restore us, revive us, renew us, refresh us.  We need revival in America. Remove our guilt.”

Faithful and Useful
“Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me”  
(Psalm 101:6).

If David spoke thus, we may be sure that the Son of David will be of the same mind. Jesus looks out for faithful men, and He fixes His eyes upon them, to observe them, to bring them forward, to encourage them, and to reward them. Let no true-hearted man think that he is overlooked; the King Himself has His eye upon him.

There are two results of this royal notice. First we read, “That they may dwell with me.” Jesus brings the faithful into His house, He sets them in His palace, He makes them His companions, He delights in their society. We must be true to our LORD, and He will then manifest Himself to us. When our faithfulness costs us most, it will be best rewarded; the more furiously men reject, the more joyfully will our LORD receive us.

Next, he says of the sincere man, “He shall serve me.” Jesus will use for His own glory those who scorn the tricks of policy and are faithful to Himself, His Word, and His cross. These shall be in His royal retinue, the honored servants of His Majesty. Communion and usefulness are the wages of faithfulness. LORD make me faithful that I may dwell with Thee and serve Thee.

“I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction”
(Isa. 48:10).
Does not the Word come like a soft shower, assuaging the fury of the flame? Yes, is it not an asbestos armor, against which the heat has no power? Let the affliction come–God has chosen me. Poverty, thou mayest stride in at my door; but God is in the house already, and He has chosen me. Sickness, thou mayest intrude; but I have a balsam ready–God has chosen me. Whatever befall me in this vale of tears, I know that He has chosen me.
Fear not, Christian; Jesus is with thee. In all thy fiery trials, His presence is both thy comfort and safety. He will never leave one whom He has chosen for His own. “Fear not, for I am with thee,” is His sure word of promise to His chosen ones in “the furnace of affliction.”
–C. H. Spurgeon
Pain’s furnace heat within me quivers,
God’s breath upon the flame doth blow;
And all my heart in anguish shivers
And trembles at the fiery glow;
And yet I whisper, “As God will!”
And in the hottest fire hold still.
He comes and lays my heart, all heated,
On the hard anvil, minded so
Into His own fair shape to beat it
With His great hammer, blow on blow;
And yet I whisper, “As God will!”
And at His heaviest blows hold still.
He takes my softened heart and beats it;
The sparks fly off at every blow;
He turns it o’er and o’er and heats it,
And lets it cool, and makes it glow;
And yet I whisper, “As God will!”
And in His mighty hand hold still.
Why should I murmur? for the sorrow
Thus only longer-lived would be;
The end may come, and will tomorrow,
When God has done His work in me;
So I say trusting, “As God will!”
And, trusting to the end, hold still. 

–Julius Sturm

Happy Sunday Morning Friends:
It is just after 5AM, I just finished lifting up my morning Prayers
to my GOD in Heaven and He placed it upon my heart to be sure
that you knew this:
I ASSURE you that it is straight from Him and that He wanted me to tell YOU!
As you can see, this morning’s Blog is entitled:
“You Are A Wanted Child!”
Here is the simple message that GOD placed upon my heart to tell you:
1.) GOD Truly does LOVE YOU;
2.) He wants you to be in Heaven with Him when you die;
3.) But there is a PROBLEM: Since Adam & Eve’s BIG mistake,
   the entire Human Race has been infected with a disease,
   And there is ONLY ONE CURE!
   If you don’t get cured of this disease, you cannot get into Heaven with GOD:
   The disease is SIN, The ONLY cure for it is Jesus Christ.
   See, GOD is the Sovereign King and Creator of the Universe.
   He sets the Rules!
   His Rule is that you cannot have the Disease called Sin and get into Heaven for Eternity;
   If you die without the only Cure: Jesus Christ: You will be Eternally separated
   from GOD and at the Great White Throne Judgment,
   described in Revelation Chapter 20,
   if you still have that Disease, Angels will take you and toss you into
   the Lake of Fire… for Eternity, there will be no end.
   On the other hand, if you accept the Cure that our Sovereign GOD
   has provided, you will spend Eternity in Heaven, with Him!
   Again: GOD does LOVE you and He wants you in Heaven with Him!
   Over 2,000 years ago, GOD showed His Mercy upon the entire Human Race
   by sending His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the CURE for the Disease, to Shed His
   Sin-Free Blood and Die on that Cross outside of Jerusalem
   as Payment, the CURE for your sins, ALL of them!
   You will be Cured of the disease if, on Faith:
      (That is: Just BELIEVE this Cure because GOD Said it is the Cure:
   Faith is NOT a feeling or emotion, it is just a belief in GOD’s Promises!
   John 3:16 makes it Very Clear:
      FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN
      SON, THAT WHOSOEVER (YOU) BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL HAVE
      EVERLASTING (ETERNAL) LIFE!)
Now: Here is what our Sovereign GOD has Ruled regarding that word:
BELIEVETH IN HIM:
1.) Believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross at Calvary in payment for your Sins,
ALL OF THEM;
2.) Believe that His Dead Body was placed in a Borrowed Tomb;
3.) That He Arose from the Dead (Was Resurrected) on the 3rd Day
We now call Easter;
4.) Was seen by over 500 people here on earth after His Resurrection and;
5.) Ascended back into Heaven in front of the Galileans;
(Acts 1:9-12)
6.)To sit upon His Throne at the Right-Hand of GOD His/our Father,
As our High Priest, Advocate, LORD and Savior.
If you believe that, on Faith, and will say this simple Prayer:
LORD, I confess that I am a sinner,
By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal LORD & Savior,
I Repent of all of my sins and ask You to forgive my sins,
I give control of my life over to Jesus,
In Jesus’ Precious Name I Pray,
Amen.
It is so simple, if you said that Prayer and truly meant it,
You now are Cured of the Disease called sin and have your
Lifetime Ticket, AS OF RIGHT NOW,
Into Heaven!
You have been Born Again, Spiritually, into the Kingdom of Heaven!
Welcome!
Now: Find a good Christian Church near where you live,
Attend regularly and Worship with your fellow Christians,
Start reading & studying your Bible:
The Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word of GOD,
Pray OFTEN to Him by telling Him that:
1.) You Adore Him,
2.) Confess your sins to Him, because, although you have
been forgiven of your sins, you are STILL going to occasionally sin,
But, as a Born-Again Christian, you will not enjoy it and,
You will fall out of Fellowship with Him if you don’t confess your sins
to Him and ask forgiveness: You STILL have your place in Heaven,
You can NEVER lose that once you have accepted Jesus
As your Personal Savior, but you should daily, Pray to GOD, in the Name of Jesus,
And confess and ask forgiveness of you sins.
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Please see the 10 Commandments: Exodus Chapter 20:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
3.) Thank Him for the Blessings you have received;
4.) Although He already knows it: Tell Him about your needs
And Thank Him for providing them for you, in other words:
Pray with the Faith that GOD will provide all of those needs
For yourself and others that you Pray for!
Thank you for taking the time to read this message that The LORD
placed upon my heart this morning!
Please feel free to copy and forward this Plan of Salvation to any and all of your Contacts:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Luke 9:26 and Mark 8:38
If anyone is Ashamed of Me on earth, I shall be ashamed of him in Heaven.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(We HAVE to tell others about Jesus: He commanded us in The Great Commission:
In Mark 16:14–18, Luke 24:44–49, Acts 1:4–8, and John 20:19–23. As Jesus
was ascending back into Heaven, He told the disciples to preach repentance and forgiveness,
and promised that they will have divine power.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
The Only Cure for the Disease that the entire Human Race has:
Jesus Christ, The Savior of the World!

Today, we are starting a Weekly feature called:
“A Word From Casey!”
Dr. Winfield Casey Jones is a Retired Pastor from the First Presbyerian Church of Pearland, TX, He can be reached at: wrjones2002@gmail.com

Do Not Fear Those Who Can Kill Only the Body

December 07, 2017

What if someone broke into your house and threatened to kill you? How do you think you or I might react?

What if you were about to be killed because of your faith in Christ? What do you think you would say or do?

Or what if the fears of some came true, and the nuclear bombs began to fall?  How do you think we would respond? Does the Bible have anything to say to us about such horrible and catastrophic events?

Earlier this week I read a scripture in which Jesus specifically addresses such fears. (I had not read it in a while, and it got my attention precisely because I myself have feared the kinds of things I just mentioned.)  Jesus said, “And do not fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can kill both body and soul in hell.” (Matthew 10:28).

These words of Jesus are sobering to say the least. But they are also comforting!

Imagine you were a Christian in a part of the world where some people wanted to kill you just because you believed Jesus is the Son of God. Your potential persecutors would of course want you to fear them, but would they have ever heard this verse where Jesus says not to fear those who can kill only the body but instead to fear only Him who can destroy both body and soul in hell? (Then your persecutors would be the ones who should be afraid for what they are about to do!)

Persecution, and even being killed for our faith, can happen in America. Christians have been shot in church worshipping God. It happened at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, S.C. and at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.  Be honest. Have you feared that? Could such a fear keep you from going to church? Jesus says that a crazy shooter could kill your body but not your soul, and for that reason you should not fear such a person! He says you and I should fear only the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell.

Morning …

1 Thessalonians 5:6
Let us not sleep, as do others.

There are many ways of promoting Christian wakefulness. Among the rest, let me strongly advise Christians to converse together concerning the ways of the Lord. Christian and Hopeful, as they journeyed towards the Celestial City, said to themselves, “To prevent drowsiness in this place, let us fall into good discourse.” Christian enquired, “Brother, where shall we begin?” And Hopeful answered, “Where God began with us.” Then Christian sang this song-

“When saints do sleepy grow, let them come hither,
And hear how these two pilgrims talk together;
Yea, let them learn of them, in any wise,
Thus to keep open their drowsy slumb’ring eyes.
Saints’ fellowship, if it be managed well,
Keeps them awake, and that in spite of hell.”

Christians who isolate themselves and walk alone, are very liable to grow drowsy. Hold Christian company, and you will be kept wakeful by it, and refreshed and encouraged to make quicker progress in the road to heaven. But as you thus take “sweet counsel” with others in the ways of God, take care that the theme of your converse is the Lord Jesus. Let the eye of faith be constantly looking unto Him; let your heart be full of Him; let your lips speak of His worth. Friend, live near to the cross, and thou wilt not sleep. Labour to impress thyself with a deep sense of the value of the place to which thou art going. If thou rememberest that thou art going to heaven, thou wilt not sleep on the road. If thou thinkest that hell is behind thee, and the devil pursuing thee, thou wilt not loiter. Would the manslayer sleep with the avenger of blood behind him, and the city of refuge before him? Christian, wilt thou sleep whilst the pearly gates are open-the songs of angels waiting for thee to join them-a crown of gold ready for thy brow? Ah! no; in holy fellowship continue to watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

God continues to bless Sagemont Church.  In the last two Sundays, over 100 people have made public decisions to make Jesus Christ Lord of their life.  Pastors Chuck Schneider, Stuart Rothberg, and Jim Hastings have been teaching the scriptures as both the Old and New Testaments prophesy and proclaim that Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth again to claim and receive His children unto Himself.  During the worship services, I am preaching the message and promise of the return of Christ.

One may ask, “Pastor, why do you passionately believe that Jesus is literally going to return to the earth?”  These are a few reasons:

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

  1.  Jesus said He would!  John 14:3 “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
  2.  The entire Christian view of history demands it.
  3. The prophetic signs found in scripture are now clearly being fulfilled.
  • Earthquakes all over the globe.  Matthew 24:7 – (over 20,000 since 1971)
  • Hearts will fail for fear.  Luke 21:26 –  Suicides are epidemic.
  • Great explosions of learning.  II Timothy 3:7 – People cannot discern the truth.
  • Immorality abounds.  Luke 17:26-27 – Like the days of Noah.

Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus will come to save His children and judge the rest.

God and Churchill

godchurchillI have just completed reading one of the best books that I have read in the last twenty years.  God and Churchill, written by one of our newest Sagemont members Jonathan Sandys (pronounced “sands”), great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.  Wallace Henley, staff member at Second Baptist Church, Houston, assisted Jonathan in this profound book.  The purpose of the book is to make clear “how the great leader’s sense of divine destiny changed his troubled world and offers help for ours.”  Tyndale Momentum is the publisher.  The book has many profound quotes.  However, there is one that has impacted my life more than many others.  Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, addressing the Church of Scotland General Assembly in 1988, said “I think back to many discussions in my early life when we all agreed that if you try to take the fruits of Christianity without its roots, the fruits will wither.  And they will not come back unless you nurture the roots.”

One of the responsibilities of the Bride of Christ, the Church, is to keep Christianity on track and prevent the derailing of His ultimate purpose.  The paganism that is engulfing us today will ultimately destroy us unless we return to the roots of our faith.  “Our faith is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”  It is on the solid rock we must stand for truly all other ground is sinking sand.

Note:  The book God and Churchill is available in the Sagemont Bookstore.

What would God rather do?
BIBLE MEDITATION:
The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it, if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it.
Jeremiah 18:7-8
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
In this passage, God is not just talking about the nation Israel. He’s talking about nations in general. God says, “When I get ready to judge a nation, if that nation will repent, then I will turn from the judgment that I had determined to send upon that nation.”
Let me tell you something about the great heart of our God: God is a God of righteousness, judgment, and justice, but God had rather show mercy than send judgment.
America is ripe for judgment. However, God says, “When I get ready to judge a nation, if that nation will repent, then I will turn from judgment and show mercy.” We are in the eleventh hour, the clock is about to strike midnight, and we need to pray, “Oh God, hold back Your hand of judgment upon America.
“If we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
ACTION POINT:
A church steeple is supposed to point us to God. Have you ever noticed that the closer the steeple gets to the top, the smaller it gets? The closer we get to God, the more we realize how insignificant and sinful we are. This is not a time for finger-pointing in America. This is a time for repentance of personal sin. I’m talking about the people in the pew. The Bible says the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God.

An Angel Encampment
“The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them” (Psalm 34:7).

We cannot see the angels, but it is enough that they can see us. There is one great Angel of the Covenant, whom not having seen we love, and His eye is always upon us both day and night. He has a host of holy ones under Him, and He causes these to be watchers over His saints and to guard them from all ill. If devils do us mischief, shining ones do us service.

Note that the LORD of angels does not come and go and pay us transient visits, but He and His armies encamp around us. The headquarters of the army of salvation is where those live whose trust is in the living God. This camp surrounds the faithful so that they cannot be attacked from any quarter unless the adversary can break through the entrenchments of the LORD of angels. We have a fixed protection, a permanent watch. Sentineled by the messengers of God, we shall not be surprised by sudden assaults nor swallowed up by overwhelming forces. Deliverance is promised in this verse — deliverance by the great Captain of our salvation, and that deliverance we shall obtain again and again until our warfare is accomplished and we exchange the field of conflict for the home of rest.

============================================================================


JULY 9
They shall mount up with wings as eagles (Isaiah 40:31).
There is a fable about the way the birds got their wings at the beginning. They were first made without wings. Then God made the wings and put them down before the wingless birds and said to them, “Come, take up these burdens and bear them.”
The birds had lovely plumage and sweet voices; they could sing, and their feathers gleamed in the sunshine, but they could not soar in the air. They hesitated at first when bidden to take up the burdens that lay at their feet, but soon they obeyed, and taking up the wings in their beaks, laid them on their shoulders to carry them.
For a little while the load seemed heavy and hard to bear, but presently, as they went on carrying the burdens, folding them over their hearts, the wings grew fast to their little bodies, and soon they discovered how to use them, and were lifted by them up into the air — the weights became wings.
It is a parable. We are the wingless birds, and our duties and tasks are the pinions God has made to lift us up and carry us heavenward. We look at our burdens and heavy loads, and shrink from them; but as we lift them and bind them about our hearts, they become wings, and on them we rise and soar toward God.
There is no burden which, if we lift it cheerfully and bear it with love in our hearts, will not become a blessing to us. God means our tasks to be our helpers; to refuse to bend our shoulders to receive a load, is to decline a new opportunity for growth.
–J. R. Miller
Blessed is any weight, however overwhelming, which God has been so good as to fasten with His own hand upon our shoulders.
–F. W. Faber

June 23, 2019
Happy Sunday Morning Friends:
It is just after 5AM, I just finished lifting up my morning Prayers
to my GOD in Heaven and He placed it upon my heart to be sure
that you knew this:
I ASSURE you that it is straight from Him and that He wanted me to tell YOU!
As you can see, this morning’s Blog is entitled:
“You Are A Wanted Child!”
Here is the simple message that GOD placed upon my heart to tell you:
1.) GOD Truly does LOVE YOU;
2.) He wants you to be in Heaven with Him when you die;
3.) But there is a PROBLEM: Since Adam & Eve’s BIG mistake,
   the entire Human Race has been infected with a disease,
   And there is ONLY ONE CURE!
   If you don’t get cured of this disease, you cannot get into Heaven with GOD:
   The disease is SIN, The ONLY cure for it is Jesus Christ.
   See, GOD is the Sovereign King and Creator of the Universe.
   He sets the Rules!
   His Rule is that you cannot have the Disease called Sin and get into Heaven for Eternity;
   If you die without the only Cure: Jesus Christ: You will be Eternally separated
   from GOD and at the Great White Throne Judgment,
   described in Revelation Chapter 20,
   if you still have that Disease, Angels will take you and toss you into
   the Lake of Fire… for Eternity, there will be no end.
   On the other hand, if you accept the Cure that our Sovereign GOD
   has provided, you will spend Eternity in Heaven, with Him!
   Again: GOD does LOVE you and He wants you in Heaven with Him!
   Over 2,000 years ago, GOD showed His Mercy upon the entire Human Race
   by sending His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the CURE for the Disease, to Shed His
   Sin-Free Blood and Die on that Cross outside of Jerusalem
   as Payment, the CURE for your sins, ALL of them!
   You will be Cured of the disease if, on Faith:
      (That is: Just BELIEVE this Cure because GOD Said it is the Cure:
   Faith is NOT a feeling or emotion, it is just a belief in GOD’s Promises!
   John 3:16 makes it Very Clear:
      FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN
      SON, THAT WHOSOEVER (YOU) BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL HAVE
      EVERLASTING (ETERNAL) LIFE!)
Now: Here is what our Sovereign GOD has Ruled regarding that word:
BELIEVETH IN HIM:
1.) Believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross at Calvary in payment for your Sins,
ALL OF THEM;
2.) Believe that His Dead Body was placed in a Borrowed Tomb;
3.) That He Arose from the Dead (Was Resurrected) on the 3rd Day
We now call Easter;
4.) Was seen by over 500 people here on earth after His Resurrection and;
5.) Ascended back into Heaven in front of the Galileans;
(Acts 1:9-12)
6.)To sit upon His Throne at the Right-Hand of GOD His/our Father,
As our High Priest, Advocate, LORD and Savior.
If you believe that, on Faith, and will say this simple Prayer:
LORD, I confess that I am a sinner,
By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal LORD & Savior,
I Repent of all of my sins and ask You to forgive my sins,
I give control of my life over to Jesus,
In Jesus’ Precious Name I Pray,
Amen.
It is so simple, if you said that Prayer and truly meant it,
You now are Cured of the Disease called sin and have your

“A Word From Casey!”

Do Not Fear Those Who Can Kill Only the Body

December 07, 2017

What if someone broke into your house and threatened to kill you? How do you think you or I might react?

What if you were about to be killed because of your faith in Christ? What do you think you would say or do?

Or what if the fears of some came true, and the nuclear bombs began to fall?  How do you think we would respond? Does the Bible have anything to say to us about such horrible and catastrophic events?

Earlier this week I read a scripture in which Jesus specifically addresses such fears. (I had not read it in a while, and it got my attention precisely because I myself have feared the kinds of things I just mentioned.)  Jesus said, “And do not fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can kill both body and soul in hell.” (Matthew 10:28).

These words of Jesus are sobering to say the least. But they are also comforting!

Imagine you were a Christian in a part of the world where some people wanted to kill you just because you believed Jesus is the Son of God. Your potential persecutors would of course want you to fear them, but would they have ever heard this verse where Jesus says not to fear those who can kill only the body but instead to fear only Him who can destroy both body and soul in hell? (Then your persecutors would be the ones who should be afraid for what they are about to do!)

Persecution, and even being killed for our faith, can happen in America. Christians have been shot in church worshipping God. It happened at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, S.C. and at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.  Be honest. Have you feared that? Could such a fear keep you from going to church? Jesus says that a crazy shooter could kill your body but not your soul, and for that reason you should not fear such a person! He says you and I should fear only the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell.

Morning …

1 Thessalonians 5:6
Let us not sleep, as do others.

There are many ways of promoting Christian wakefulness. Among the rest, let me strongly advise Christians to converse together concerning the ways of the Lord. Christian and Hopeful, as they journeyed towards the Celestial City, said to themselves, “To prevent drowsiness in this place, let us fall into good discourse.” Christian enquired, “Brother, where shall we begin?” And Hopeful answered, “Where God began with us.” Then Christian sang this song-

“When saints do sleepy grow, let them come hither,
And hear how these two pilgrims talk together;
Yea, let them learn of them, in any wise,
Thus to keep open their drowsy slumb’ring eyes.
Saints’ fellowship, if it be managed well,
Keeps them awake, and that in spite of hell.”

Christians who isolate themselves and walk alone, are very liable to grow drowsy. Hold Christian company, and you will be kept wakeful by it, and refreshed and encouraged to make quicker progress in the road to heaven. But as you thus take “sweet counsel” with others in the ways of God, take care that the theme of your converse is the Lord Jesus. Let the eye of faith be constantly looking unto Him; let your heart be full of Him; let your lips speak of His worth. Friend, live near to the cross, and thou wilt not sleep. Labour to impress thyself with a deep sense of the value of the place to which thou art going. If thou rememberest that thou art going to heaven, thou wilt not sleep on the road. If thou thinkest that hell is behind thee, and the devil pursuing thee, thou wilt not loiter. Would the manslayer sleep with the avenger of blood behind him, and the city of refuge before him? Christian, wilt thou sleep whilst the pearly gates are open-the songs of angels waiting for thee to join them-a crown of gold ready for thy brow? Ah! no; in holy fellowship continue to watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

God continues to bless Sagemont Church.  In the last two Sundays, over 100 people have made public decisions to make Jesus Christ Lord of their life.  Pastors Chuck Schneider, Stuart Rothberg, and Jim Hastings have been teaching the scriptures as both the Old and New Testaments prophesy and proclaim that Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth again to claim and receive His children unto Himself.  During the worship services, I am preaching the message and promise of the return of Christ.

One may ask, “Pastor, why do you passionately believe that Jesus is literally going to return to the earth?”  These are a few reasons:

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

  1.  Jesus said He would!  John 14:3 “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
  2.  The entire Christian view of history demands it.
  3. The prophetic signs found in scripture are now clearly being fulfilled.
  • Earthquakes all over the globe.  Matthew 24:7 – (over 20,000 since 1971)
  • Hearts will fail for fear.  Luke 21:26 –  Suicides are epidemic.
  • Great explosions of learning.  II Timothy 3:7 – People cannot discern the truth.
  • Immorality abounds.  Luke 17:26-27 – Like the days of Noah.

Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus will come to save His children and judge the rest.

God and Churchill

godchurchillI have just completed reading one of the best books that I have read in the last twenty years.  God and Churchill, written by one of our newest Sagemont members Jonathan Sandys (pronounced “sands”), great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.  Wallace Henley, staff member at Second Baptist Church, Houston, assisted Jonathan in this profound book.  The purpose of the book is to make clear “how the great leader’s sense of divine destiny changed his troubled world and offers help for ours.”  Tyndale Momentum is the publisher.  The book has many profound quotes.  However, there is one that has impacted my life more than many others.  Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, addressing the Church of Scotland General Assembly in 1988, said “I think back to many discussions in my early life when we all agreed that if you try to take the fruits of Christianity without its roots, the fruits will wither.  And they will not come back unless you nurture the roots.”

One of the responsibilities of the Bride of Christ, the Church, is to keep Christianity on track and prevent the derailing of His ultimate purpose.  The paganism that is engulfing us today will ultimately destroy us unless we return to the roots of our faith.  “Our faith is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”  It is on the solid rock we must stand for truly all other ground is sinking sand.

Note:  The book God and Churchill is available in the Sagemont Bookstore.

Am I accountable for my nation’s sins?
BIBLE MEDITATION:
We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from Thy precepts and from Thy judgments.
 Daniel 9:5
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Reading Daniel’s prayer in this verse, you might find yourself asking, “Did Daniel do all that—committed iniquity, done wickedly, rebelled and departed?” No. Daniel simply included himself in his prayer for his nation.
Daniel was one of the mostly godly men in the Old Testament. Daniel is one of only two men (the other being Joseph) about whom the Old Testament says not one word to indicate they ever displeased God. So why is Daniel saying this? Because he was identifying with the sin of his people and lifting them up before the Lord in great humility.
Does God hold me accountable for the abortion in America? Yes! Does God hold me accountable for the pornography? Yes! For the drug addiction, alcoholism, materialism, humanism? Yes, He does. Friend, if the church had done what she ought to have done, and if we would do what we ought to do, these problems would be healed. And while we may not commit these sins, they are still our sins. Verse 20 of this same chapter makes it so clear: “While I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel….”
Now, people who don’t know God aren’t going to confess the sin of this nation. Like Daniel, we must set our face and pray with reflection and repentance, confessing our sin and the sin of America. Only sin that is confessed is forgiven.
ACTION POINT:
Have you ever set your face to prayer? So much of our prayer, I hate to say, is casual prayer, prayer that comes with almost a take-it-or-leave-it attitude. We must set our face before God with fasting and determination.

A Mountain Choir
“Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted His people, and will have mercy upon His afflicted”   (Isaiah 49:13).

So sweet are the comforts of the LORD, that not only the saints themselves may sing of them, but even the heavens and the earth may take up the song. It takes something to make a mountain sing; and yet the prophet summons quite a choir of them. Lebanon, and Sirion, and the high hills of Bashan and Moab, He would set them all singing because of Jehovah’s grace to His own Zion. May we not also make mountains of difficulty, and trial, and mystery, and labor become occasions for praise unto our God? “Break forth into singing, O mountains!”

This word of promise, that our God will have mercy upon His afflicted, has a whole peal of bells connected with it. Hear their music — “Sing!” “Be joyful!” “Break forth into singing.” The LORD would have His people happy because of His unfailing love. He would not have us sad and doubtful; He claims horn us the worship of believing hearts. He cannot fail us: why should we sigh or sulk as if He would do so? Oh, for a well-tuned harp! Oh, for voices like those of the cherubim before the throne!

============================================================================


JULY 8
He hath made me a polished shaft
(Isa. 49:2).
There is a very famous “Pebble Beach” at Pescadero, on the California coast. The long line of white surf comes up with its everlasting roar, and rattles and thunders among the stones on the shore. They are caught in the arms of the pitiless waves, and tossed and rolled, and rubbed together, and ground against the sharp-grained cliffs. Day and night forever the ceaseless attrition goes on–never any rest. And the result?
Tourists from all the world flock thither to gather the round and beautiful stones. They are laid up in cabinets; they ornament the parlor mantels. But go yonder, around the point of the cliff that breaks off the force of the sea; and up in that quiet cove, sheltered from the storms, and lying ever in the sun, you shall find abundance of pebbles that have never been chosen by the traveler.
Why are these left all the years through unsought? For the simple reason that they have escaped all the turmoil and attrition of the waves, and the quiet and peace have left them as they found them, rough and angular and devoid of beauty. Polish comes through trouble.
Since God knows what niche we are to fill, let us trust Him to shape us to it. Since He knows what work we are to do, let us trust Him to drill us to the proper preparation.
O blows that smite! O hurts that pierce
This shrinking heart of mine!
What are ye but the Master’s tools
Forming a work Divine?
Nearly all God’s jewels are crystallized tears.

Happy Sunday Morning Friends:
It is just after 5AM, I just finished lifting up my morning Prayers
to my GOD in Heaven and He placed it upon my heart to be sure
that you knew this:
I ASSURE you that it is straight from Him and that He wanted me to tell YOU!
As you can see, this morning’s Blog is entitled:
“You Are A Wanted Child!”
Here is the simple message that GOD placed upon my heart to tell you:
1.) GOD Truly does LOVE YOU;
2.) He wants you to be in Heaven with Him when you die;
3.) But there is a PROBLEM: Since Adam & Eve’s BIG mistake,
   the entire Human Race has been infected with a disease,
   And there is ONLY ONE CURE!
   If you don’t get cured of this disease, you cannot get into Heaven with GOD:
   The disease is SIN, The ONLY cure for it is Jesus Christ.
   See, GOD is the Sovereign King and Creator of the Universe.
   He sets the Rules!
   His Rule is that you cannot have the Disease called Sin and get into Heaven for Eternity;
   If you die without the only Cure: Jesus Christ: You will be Eternally separated
   from GOD and at the Great White Throne Judgment,
   described in Revelation Chapter 20,
   if you still have that Disease, Angels will take you and toss you into
   the Lake of Fire… for Eternity, there will be no end.
   On the other hand, if you accept the Cure that our Sovereign GOD
   has provided, you will spend Eternity in Heaven, with Him!
   Again: GOD does LOVE you and He wants you in Heaven with Him!
   Over 2,000 years ago, GOD showed His Mercy upon the entire Human Race
   by sending His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the CURE for the Disease, to Shed His
   Sin-Free Blood and Die on that Cross outside of Jerusalem
   as Payment, the CURE for your sins, ALL of them!
   You will be Cured of the disease if, on Faith:
      (That is: Just BELIEVE this Cure because GOD Said it is the Cure:
   Faith is NOT a feeling or emotion, it is just a belief in GOD’s Promises!
   John 3:16 makes it Very Clear:
      FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN
      SON, THAT WHOSOEVER (YOU) BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL HAVE
      EVERLASTING (ETERNAL) LIFE!)
Now: Here is what our Sovereign GOD has Ruled regarding that word:
BELIEVETH IN HIM:
1.) Believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross at Calvary in payment for your Sins,
ALL OF THEM;
2.) Believe that His Dead Body was placed in a Borrowed Tomb;
3.) That He Arose from the Dead (Was Resurrected) on the 3rd Day
We now call Easter;
4.) Was seen by over 500 people here on earth after His Resurrection and;
5.) Ascended back into Heaven in front of the Galileans;
(Acts 1:9-12)
6.)To sit upon His Throne at the Right-Hand of GOD His/our Father,
As our High Priest, Advocate, LORD and Savior.
If you believe that, on Faith, and will say this simple Prayer:
LORD, I confess that I am a sinner,
By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal LORD & Savior,
I Repent of all of my sins and ask You to forgive my sins,
I give control of my life over to Jesus,
In Jesus’ Precious Name I Pray,
Amen.
It is so simple, if you said that Prayer and truly meant it,
You now are Cured of the Disease called sin and have your
Lifetime Ticket, AS OF RIGHT NOW,
Into Heaven!
You have been Born Again, Spiritually, into the Kingdom of Heaven!
Welcome!
Now: Find a good Christian Church near where you live,
Attend regularly and Worship with your fellow Christians,
Start reading & studying your Bible:
The Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word of GOD,
Pray OFTEN to Him by telling Him that:
1.) You Adore Him,
2.) Confess your sins to Him, because, although you have
been forgiven of your sins, you are STILL going to occasionally sin,
But, as a Born-Again Christian, you will not enjoy it and,
You will fall out of Fellowship with Him if you don’t confess your sins
to Him and ask forgiveness: You STILL have your place in Heaven,
You can NEVER lose that once you have accepted Jesus
As your Personal Savior, but you should daily, Pray to GOD, in the Name of Jesus,
And confess and ask forgiveness of you sins.
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Please see the 10 Commandments: Exodus Chapter 20:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
3.) Thank Him for the Blessings you have received;
4.) Although He already knows it: Tell Him about your needs
And Thank Him for providing them for you, in other words:
Pray with the Faith that GOD will provide all of those needs
For yourself and others that you Pray for!
Thank you for taking the time to read this message that The LORD
placed upon my heart this morning!
Please feel free to copy and forward this Plan of Salvation to any and all of your Contacts:

was ascending back into Heaven, He told the disciples to preach repentance and forgiveness,
and promised that they will have divine power.)

Do Not Fear Those Who Can Kill Only the Body

December 07, 2017

What if someone broke into your house and threatened to kill you? How do you think you or I might react?

What if you were about to be killed because of your faith in Christ? What do you think you would say or do?

Or what if the fears of some came true, and the nuclear bombs began to fall?  How do you think we would respond? Does the Bible have anything to say to us about such horrible and catastrophic events?

Earlier this week I read a scripture in which Jesus specifically addresses such fears. (I had not read it in a while, and it got my attention precisely because I myself have feared the kinds of things I just mentioned.)  Jesus said, “And do not fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can kill both body and soul in hell.” (Matthew 10:28).

These words of Jesus are sobering to say the least. But they are also comforting!

Imagine you were a Christian in a part of the world where some people wanted to kill you just because you believed Jesus is the Son of God. Your potential persecutors would of course want you to fear them, but would they have ever heard this verse where Jesus says not to fear those who can kill only the body but instead to fear only Him who can destroy both body and soul in hell? (Then your persecutors would be the ones who should be afraid for what they are about to do!)

Persecution, and even being killed for our faith, can happen in America. Christians have been shot in church worshipping God. It happened at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, S.C. and at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.  Be honest. Have you feared that? Could such a fear keep you from going to church? Jesus says that a crazy shooter could kill your body but not your soul, and for that reason you should not fear such a person! He says you and I should fear only the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell.

Morning …

1 Thessalonians 5:6
Let us not sleep, as do others.

There are many ways of promoting Christian wakefulness. Among the rest, let me strongly advise Christians to converse together concerning the ways of the Lord. Christian and Hopeful, as they journeyed towards the Celestial City, said to themselves, “To prevent drowsiness in this place, let us fall into good discourse.” Christian enquired, “Brother, where shall we begin?” And Hopeful answered, “Where God began with us.” Then Christian sang this song-

“When saints do sleepy grow, let them come hither,
And hear how these two pilgrims talk together;
Yea, let them learn of them, in any wise,
Thus to keep open their drowsy slumb’ring eyes.
Saints’ fellowship, if it be managed well,
Keeps them awake, and that in spite of hell.”

Christians who isolate themselves and walk alone, are very liable to grow drowsy. Hold Christian company, and you will be kept wakeful by it, and refreshed and encouraged to make quicker progress in the road to heaven. But as you thus take “sweet counsel” with others in the ways of God, take care that the theme of your converse is the Lord Jesus. Let the eye of faith be constantly looking unto Him; let your heart be full of Him; let your lips speak of His worth. Friend, live near to the cross, and thou wilt not sleep. Labour to impress thyself with a deep sense of the value of the place to which thou art going. If thou rememberest that thou art going to heaven, thou wilt not sleep on the road. If thou thinkest that hell is behind thee, and the devil pursuing thee, thou wilt not loiter. Would the manslayer sleep with the avenger of blood behind him, and the city of refuge before him? Christian, wilt thou sleep whilst the pearly gates are open-the songs of angels waiting for thee to join them-a crown of gold ready for thy brow? Ah! no; in holy fellowship continue to watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

God continues to bless Sagemont Church.  In the last two Sundays, over 100 people have made public decisions to make Jesus Christ Lord of their life.  Pastors Chuck Schneider, Stuart Rothberg, and Jim Hastings have been teaching the scriptures as both the Old and New Testaments prophesy and proclaim that Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth again to claim and receive His children unto Himself.  During the worship services, I am preaching the message and promise of the return of Christ.

One may ask, “Pastor, why do you passionately believe that Jesus is literally going to return to the earth?”  These are a few reasons:

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

  1.  Jesus said He would!  John 14:3 “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
  2.  The entire Christian view of history demands it.
  3. The prophetic signs found in scripture are now clearly being fulfilled.
  • Earthquakes all over the globe.  Matthew 24:7 – (over 20,000 since 1971)
  • Hearts will fail for fear.  Luke 21:26 –  Suicides are epidemic.
  • Great explosions of learning.  II Timothy 3:7 – People cannot discern the truth.
  • Immorality abounds.  Luke 17:26-27 – Like the days of Noah.

Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus will come to save His children and judge the rest.

God and Churchill

godchurchillI have just completed reading one of the best books that I have read in the last twenty years.  God and Churchill, written by one of our newest Sagemont members Jonathan Sandys (pronounced “sands”), great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.  Wallace Henley, staff member at Second Baptist Church, Houston, assisted Jonathan in this profound book.  The purpose of the book is to make clear “how the great leader’s sense of divine destiny changed his troubled world and offers help for ours.”  Tyndale Momentum is the publisher.  The book has many profound quotes.  However, there is one that has impacted my life more than many others.  Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, addressing the Church of Scotland General Assembly in 1988, said “I think back to many discussions in my early life when we all agreed that if you try to take the fruits of Christianity without its roots, the fruits will wither.  And they will not come back unless you nurture the roots.”

One of the responsibilities of the Bride of Christ, the Church, is to keep Christianity on track and prevent the derailing of His ultimate purpose.  The paganism that is engulfing us today will ultimately destroy us unless we return to the roots of our faith.  “Our faith is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”  It is on the solid rock we must stand for truly all other ground is sinking sand.

Note:  The book God and Churchill is available in the Sagemont Bookstore.

Yes, We Need Each Other!
BIBLE MEDITATION:
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” 
Hebrews 10:25
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
To exhort is to comfort and encourage. We need each other. We ought to be encouraging one another, saying, “Isn’t God wonderful? Isn’t Jesus great? Don’t you love Him? What’s God doing in your life? How may I pray for you today?”
Among fellow believers, we live in a climate that keeps our hearts tender. When we stray from that climate and get away from the people of God by skipping worship services and fellowship opportunities, our hearts will grow hard.
When we encourage one another, we are sharing Christ. Fellowship among believers is vital for your spiritual growth. There’s something that happens in our hearts when we share in each other’s lives. We grow. We strengthen one another. Fellowship keeps our heart tender.
ACTION POINT:
Do you have that kind of fellowship? Are you in community with fellow believers? If you had no earthly family—no parents, no brothers or sisters, you’d be an orphan. Don’t be a spiritual orphan. Fellowship with other believers is one of the greatest joys on earth.

His Love; His Gift; His Son!
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life”   (John 3:16).

Of all the stars in the sky, the polestar is the most useful to the mariner. This text is a polestar, for it has guided more souls to salvation than any other Scripture. It is among promises what the Great Bear is among constellations.

Several words in it shine with peculiar brilliance. Here we have God’s love with a “so” to it, which marks its measureless greatness. Then we have God’s gift in all its freeness and greatness. This also is God’s Son, that unique and priceless gift of a love which could never fully show itself till heaven’s Only-begotten had been sent to live and die for men. These three points are full of light.

Then there is the simple requirement of believing, which graciously points to a way of salvation suitable for guilty men. This is backed by a wide description — “whosoever believeth in him.” Many have found room in “whosoever” who would have felt themselves shut out by a narrower word. Then comes the great promise, that believers in Jesus shall not perish but have everlasting life. This is cheering to every man who feels that he is ready to perish and that he cannot save himself. We believe in the LORD Jesus, and we have eternal life.

============================================================================


JULY 7
Neither know we what to do; but our eyes are, upon thee (2 Chron. 20:12).
A life was lost in Israel because a pair of human hands were laid unbidden upon the ark of God. They were placed upon it with the best intent, to steady it when trembling and shaking as the oxen drew it along the rough way; but they touched God’s work presumptuously, and they fell paralyzed and lifeless. Much of the life of faith consists in letting things alone.
If we wholly trust an interest to God, we must keep our hands off it; and He will guard it for us better than we can help Him. “Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.”
Things may seem to be going all wrong, but He knows as well as we; and He will arise in the right moment if we are really trusting Him so fully as to let Him work in His own way and time. There is nothing so masterly as inactivity in some things, and there is nothing so hurtful as restless working, for God has undertaken to work His sovereign will.
–A. B. Simpson
Being perplexed, I say,
‘Lord, make it right!
Night is as day to Thee,
Darkness as light.
I am afraid to touch
Things that involve so much;
My trembling hand may shake,
My skilless hand may break;
Thine can make no mistake.’
Being in doubt I say,
‘Lord, make it plain;
Which is the true, safe way?
Which would be gain?
I am not wise to know,
Nor sure of foot to go;
What is so clear to Thee,
Lord, make it clear to me!’
It is such a comfort to drop the tangles of life into God’s hands and leave them there.

June 23, 2019
Happy Sunday Morning Friends:
It is just after 5AM, I just finished lifting up my morning Prayers
to my GOD in Heaven and He placed it upon my heart to be sure
that you knew this:
I ASSURE you that it is straight from Him and that He wanted me to tell YOU!
As you can see, this morning’s Blog is entitled:
“You Are A Wanted Child!”
Here is the simple message that GOD placed upon my heart to tell you:
1.) GOD Truly does LOVE YOU;
2.) He wants you to be in Heaven with Him when you die;
3.) But there is a PROBLEM: Since Adam & Eve’s BIG mistake,
   the entire Human Race has been infected with a disease,
   And there is ONLY ONE CURE!
   If you don’t get cured of this disease, you cannot get into Heaven with GOD:
   The disease is SIN, The ONLY cure for it is Jesus Christ.
   See, GOD is the Sovereign King and Creator of the Universe.
   He sets the Rules!
   His Rule is that you cannot have the Disease called Sin and get into Heaven for Eternity;
   If you die without the only Cure: Jesus Christ: You will be Eternally separated
   from GOD and at the Great White Throne Judgment,
   described in Revelation Chapter 20,
   if you still have that Disease, Angels will take you and toss you into
   the Lake of Fire… for Eternity, there will be no end.
   On the other hand, if you accept the Cure that our Sovereign GOD
   has provided, you will spend Eternity in Heaven, with Him!
   Again: GOD does LOVE you and He wants you in Heaven with Him!
   Over 2,000 years ago, GOD showed His Mercy upon the entire Human Race
   by sending His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the CURE for the Disease, to Shed His
   Sin-Free Blood and Die on that Cross outside of Jerusalem
   as Payment, the CURE for your sins, ALL of them!
   You will be Cured of the disease if, on Faith:
      (That is: Just BELIEVE this Cure because GOD Said it is the Cure:
   Faith is NOT a feeling or emotion, it is just a belief in GOD’s Promises!
   John 3:16 makes it Very Clear:
      FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN
      SON, THAT WHOSOEVER (YOU) BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL HAVE
      EVERLASTING (ETERNAL) LIFE!)
Now: Here is what our Sovereign GOD has Ruled regarding that word:
BELIEVETH IN HIM:
1.) Believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross at Calvary in payment for your Sins,
ALL OF THEM;
2.) Believe that His Dead Body was placed in a Borrowed Tomb;
3.) That He Arose from the Dead (Was Resurrected) on the 3rd Day
We now call Easter;
4.) Was seen by over 500 people here on earth after His Resurrection and;
5.) Ascended back into Heaven in front of the Galileans;
(Acts 1:9-12)
6.)To sit upon His Throne at the Right-Hand of GOD His/our Father,
As our High Priest, Advocate, LORD and Savior.
If you believe that, on Faith, and will say this simple Prayer:
LORD, I confess that I am a sinner,
By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal LORD & Savior,
I Repent of all of my sins and ask You to forgive my sins,
I give control of my life over to Jesus,
In Jesus’ Precious Name I Pray,
Amen.
It is so simple, if you said that Prayer and truly meant it,
You now are Cured of the Disease called sin and have your
Lifetime Ticket, AS OF RIGHT NOW,
Into Heaven!
You have been Born Again, Spiritually, into the Kingdom of Heaven!
Welcome!
Now: Find a good Christian Church near where you live,
Attend regularly and Worship with your fellow Christians,
Start reading & studying your Bible:
The Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word of GOD,
Pray OFTEN to Him by telling Him that:
1.) You Adore Him,
2.) Confess your sins to Him, because, although you have
been forgiven of your sins, you are STILL going to occasionally sin,
But, as a Born-Again Christian, you will not enjoy it and,
You will fall out of Fellowship with Him if you don’t confess your sins
to Him and ask forgiveness: You STILL have your place in Heaven,
You can NEVER lose that once you have accepted Jesus
As your Personal Savior, but you should daily, Pray to GOD, in the Name of Jesus,
And confess and ask forgiveness of you sins.
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Please see the 10 Commandments: Exodus Chapter 20:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
3.) Thank Him for the Blessings you have received;
4.) Although He already knows it: Tell Him about your needs
And Thank Him for providing them for you, in other words:
Pray with the Faith that GOD will provide all of those needs
For yourself and others that you Pray for!
Thank you for taking the time to read this message that The LORD
placed upon my heart this morning!
Please feel free to copy and forward this Plan of Salvation to any and all of your Contacts:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Luke 9:26 and Mark 8:38
If anyone is Ashamed of Me on earth, I shall be ashamed of him in Heaven.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(We HAVE to tell others about Jesus: He commanded us in The Great Commission:
In Mark 16:14–18, Luke 24:44–49, Acts 1:4–8, and John 20:19–23. As Jesus
was ascending back into Heaven, He told the disciples to preach repentance and forgiveness,
and promised that they will have divine power.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
The Only Cure for the Disease that the entire Human Race has:
Jesus Christ, The Savior of the World!

“A Word From Casey!”

Do Not Fear Those Who Can Kill Only the Body

December 07, 2017

What if someone broke into your house and threatened to kill you? How do you think you or I might react?

What if you were about to be killed because of your faith in Christ? What do you think you would say or do?

Or what if the fears of some came true, and the nuclear bombs began to fall?  How do you think we would respond? Does the Bible have anything to say to us about such horrible and catastrophic events?

Earlier this week I read a scripture in which Jesus specifically addresses such fears. (I had not read it in a while, and it got my attention precisely because I myself have feared the kinds of things I just mentioned.)  Jesus said, “And do not fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can kill both body and soul in hell.” (Matthew 10:28).

These words of Jesus are sobering to say the least. But they are also comforting!

Imagine you were a Christian in a part of the world where some people wanted to kill you just because you believed Jesus is the Son of God. Your potential persecutors would of course want you to fear them, but would they have ever heard this verse where Jesus says not to fear those who can kill only the body but instead to fear only Him who can destroy both body and soul in hell? (Then your persecutors would be the ones who should be afraid for what they are about to do!)

Persecution, and even being killed for our faith, can happen in America. Christians have been shot in church worshipping God. It happened at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, S.C. and at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.  Be honest. Have you feared that? Could such a fear keep you from going to church? Jesus says that a crazy shooter could kill your body but not your soul, and for that reason you should not fear such a person! He says you and I should fear only the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell.

Morning …

1 Thessalonians 5:6
Let us not sleep, as do others.

There are many ways of promoting Christian wakefulness. Among the rest, let me strongly advise Christians to converse together concerning the ways of the Lord. Christian and Hopeful, as they journeyed towards the Celestial City, said to themselves, “To prevent drowsiness in this place, let us fall into good discourse.” Christian enquired, “Brother, where shall we begin?” And Hopeful answered, “Where God began with us.” Then Christian sang this song-

“When saints do sleepy grow, let them come hither,
And hear how these two pilgrims talk together;
Yea, let them learn of them, in any wise,
Thus to keep open their drowsy slumb’ring eyes.
Saints’ fellowship, if it be managed well,
Keeps them awake, and that in spite of hell.”

Christians who isolate themselves and walk alone, are very liable to grow drowsy. Hold Christian company, and you will be kept wakeful by it, and refreshed and encouraged to make quicker progress in the road to heaven. But as you thus take “sweet counsel” with others in the ways of God, take care that the theme of your converse is the Lord Jesus. Let the eye of faith be constantly looking unto Him; let your heart be full of Him; let your lips speak of His worth. Friend, live near to the cross, and thou wilt not sleep. Labour to impress thyself with a deep sense of the value of the place to which thou art going. If thou rememberest that thou art going to heaven, thou wilt not sleep on the road. If thou thinkest that hell is behind thee, and the devil pursuing thee, thou wilt not loiter. Would the manslayer sleep with the avenger of blood behind him, and the city of refuge before him? Christian, wilt thou sleep whilst the pearly gates are open-the songs of angels waiting for thee to join them-a crown of gold ready for thy brow? Ah! no; in holy fellowship continue to watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

God continues to bless Sagemont Church.  In the last two Sundays, over 100 people have made public decisions to make Jesus Christ Lord of their life.  Pastors Chuck Schneider, Stuart Rothberg, and Jim Hastings have been teaching the scriptures as both the Old and New Testaments prophesy and proclaim that Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth again to claim and receive His children unto Himself.  During the worship services, I am preaching the message and promise of the return of Christ.

One may ask, “Pastor, why do you passionately believe that Jesus is literally going to return to the earth?”  These are a few reasons:

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

  1.  Jesus said He would!  John 14:3 “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
  2.  The entire Christian view of history demands it.
  3. The prophetic signs found in scripture are now clearly being fulfilled.
  • Earthquakes all over the globe.  Matthew 24:7 – (over 20,000 since 1971)
  • Hearts will fail for fear.  Luke 21:26 –  Suicides are epidemic.
  • Great explosions of learning.  II Timothy 3:7 – People cannot discern the truth.
  • Immorality abounds.  Luke 17:26-27 – Like the days of Noah.

Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus will come to save His children and judge the rest.

God and Churchill

godchurchillI have just completed reading one of the best books that I have read in the last twenty years.  God and Churchill, written by one of our newest Sagemont members Jonathan Sandys (pronounced “sands”), great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.  Wallace Henley, staff member at Second Baptist Church, Houston, assisted Jonathan in this profound book.  The purpose of the book is to make clear “how the great leader’s sense of divine destiny changed his troubled world and offers help for ours.”  Tyndale Momentum is the publisher.  The book has many profound quotes.  However, there is one that has impacted my life more than many others.  Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, addressing the Church of Scotland General Assembly in 1988, said “I think back to many discussions in my early life when we all agreed that if you try to take the fruits of Christianity without its roots, the fruits will wither.  And they will not come back unless you nurture the roots.”

One of the responsibilities of the Bride of Christ, the Church, is to keep Christianity on track and prevent the derailing of His ultimate purpose.  The paganism that is engulfing us today will ultimately destroy us unless we return to the roots of our faith.  “Our faith is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”  It is on the solid rock we must stand for truly all other ground is sinking sand.

Note:  The book God and Churchill is available in the Sagemont Bookstore.

Feel backed into a corner?
BIBLE MEDITATION:
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” 
1 Corinthians 15:58
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Where are the courageous children of God who will speak on their Father’s behalf—speak of His Truth, His mercy, His love? Psalm 119:46 says, “I will speak of Thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.”
They have a saying in the country: “What’s down in the well comes up in the bucket.” What happens when you are up against a wall? Do you back down and deny your faith? Or do you stand firm despite the verbal assault on your beliefs?
ACTION POINT:
Are you fearful? Do you feel backed into a corner? 1 Peter 3:14-17 has your prescription for a fearful heart:
But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled. But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear, having a good conscience that whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

Complete Deliverance
“But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the LORD; and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid”  
(Jeremiah 39:17).

When the LORD’s faithful ones are suffering for Him, they shall have sweet messages of love from Himself, and sometimes they shall have glad tidings for those who sympathize with them and help them. Ebed-melech was only a despised Ethiopian, but he was kind to Jeremiah, and so the LORD sent him this special promise by the mouth of His prophet. Let us be ever mindful of God’s persecuted servants, and He will reward us.

Ebed-melech was to be delivered from the men whose vengeance he feared. He was a humble… man, but Jehovah would take care of him. Thousands were slain by the Chaldeans, but [he] could not be hurt. We, too, may be fearful of some great ones who are bitter against us; but if we have been faithful to the LORD’s cause in the hour of persecution, He will be faithful to us. After all, what can a man do without the LORD’s permission? He puts a bit into the mouth of rage and a bridle upon the head of power. Let us fear the LORD, and we shall have no one else to fear. No cup of cold water given to a despised prophet of God shall be without its reward; and if we stand up for Jesus, Jesus will stand up for us.

I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness…And I will give her her vineyards from thence (Hosea 2:14-15).
A strange place to find vineyards–in the wilderness! And can it be that the riches which a soul needs can be obtained in the wilderness, which stands for a lonely place, out of which you can seldom find your way? It would seem so, and not only that, but the “Valley of Achor,” which means bitterness, is called a door of hope. And she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth!
Yes, God knows our need of the wilderness experience. He knows where and how to bring out that which is enduring. The soul has been idolatrous, rebellious; has forgotten God, and with a perfect self-will has said, “I will follow after my lovers.” But she did not overtake them. And, when she was hopeless and forsaken, God said, “I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.”
What a loving God is ours!
–Crumbs
We never know where God hides His pools. We see a rock, and we cannot guess it is the home of the spring. We see a flinty place, and we cannot tell it is the hiding place of a fountain. God leads me into the hard places, and then I find I have gone into the dwelling place of eternal springs.

Happy Sunday Morning Friends:
It is just after 5AM, I just finished lifting up my morning Prayers
to my GOD in Heaven and He placed it upon my heart to be sure
that you knew this:
I ASSURE you that it is straight from Him and that He wanted me to tell YOU!
As you can see, this morning’s Blog is entitled:
“You Are A Wanted Child!”
Here is the simple message that GOD placed upon my heart to tell you:
1.) GOD Truly does LOVE YOU;
2.) He wants you to be in Heaven with Him when you die;
3.) But there is a PROBLEM: Since Adam & Eve’s BIG mistake,
   the entire Human Race has been infected with a disease,
   And there is ONLY ONE CURE!
   If you don’t get cured of this disease, you cannot get into Heaven with GOD:
   The disease is SIN, The ONLY cure for it is Jesus Christ.
   See, GOD is the Sovereign King and Creator of the Universe.
   He sets the Rules!
   His Rule is that you cannot have the Disease called Sin and get into Heaven for Eternity;
   If you die without the only Cure: Jesus Christ: You will be Eternally separated
   from GOD and at the Great White Throne Judgment,
   described in Revelation Chapter 20,
   if you still have that Disease, Angels will take you and toss you into
   the Lake of Fire… for Eternity, there will be no end.
   On the other hand, if you accept the Cure that our Sovereign GOD
   has provided, you will spend Eternity in Heaven, with Him!
   Again: GOD does LOVE you and He wants you in Heaven with Him!
   Over 2,000 years ago, GOD showed His Mercy upon the entire Human Race
   by sending His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the CURE for the Disease, to Shed His
   Sin-Free Blood and Die on that Cross outside of Jerusalem
   as Payment, the CURE for your sins, ALL of them!
   You will be Cured of the disease if, on Faith:
      (That is: Just BELIEVE this Cure because GOD Said it is the Cure:
   Faith is NOT a feeling or emotion, it is just a belief in GOD’s Promises!
   John 3:16 makes it Very Clear:
      FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN
      SON, THAT WHOSOEVER (YOU) BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL HAVE
      EVERLASTING (ETERNAL) LIFE!)
Now: Here is what our Sovereign GOD has Ruled regarding that word:
BELIEVETH IN HIM:
1.) Believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross at Calvary in payment for your Sins,
ALL OF THEM;
2.) Believe that His Dead Body was placed in a Borrowed Tomb;
3.) That He Arose from the Dead (Was Resurrected) on the 3rd Day
We now call Easter;
4.) Was seen by over 500 people here on earth after His Resurrection and;
5.) Ascended back into Heaven in front of the Galileans;
(Acts 1:9-12)
6.)To sit upon His Throne at the Right-Hand of GOD His/our Father,
As our High Priest, Advocate, LORD and Savior.
If you believe that, on Faith, and will say this simple Prayer:
LORD, I confess that I am a sinner,
By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal LORD & Savior,
I Repent of all of my sins and ask You to forgive my sins,
I give control of my life over to Jesus,
In Jesus’ Precious Name I Pray,
Amen.
It is so simple, if you said that Prayer and truly meant it,
You now are Cured of the Disease called sin and have your
Lifetime Ticket, AS OF RIGHT NOW,
Into Heaven!
You have been Born Again, Spiritually, into the Kingdom of Heaven!
Welcome!
Now: Find a good Christian Church near where you live,
Attend regularly and Worship with your fellow Christians,
Start reading & studying your Bible:
The Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word of GOD,
Pray OFTEN to Him by telling Him that:
1.) You Adore Him,
2.) Confess your sins to Him, because, although you have
been forgiven of your sins, you are STILL going to occasionally sin,
But, as a Born-Again Christian, you will not enjoy it and,
You will fall out of Fellowship with Him if you don’t confess your sins
to Him and ask forgiveness: You STILL have your place in Heaven,
You can NEVER lose that once you have accepted Jesus
As your Personal Savior, but you should daily, Pray to GOD, in the Name of Jesus,
And confess and ask forgiveness of you sins.
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Please see the 10 Commandments: Exodus Chapter 20:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
3.) Thank Him for the Blessings you have received;
4.) Although He already knows it: Tell Him about your needs
And Thank Him for providing them for you, in other words:
Pray with the Faith that GOD will provide all of those needs
For yourself and others that you Pray for!
Thank you for taking the time to read this message that The LORD
placed upon my heart this morning!
Please feel free to copy and forward this Plan of Salvation to any and all of your Contacts:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Luke 9:26 and Mark 8:38
If anyone is Ashamed of Me on earth, I shall be ashamed of him in Heaven.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(We HAVE to tell others about Jesus: He commanded us in The Great Commission:
In Mark 16:14–18, Luke 24:44–49, Acts 1:4–8, and John 20:19–23. As Jesus
was ascending back into Heaven, He told the disciples to preach repentance and forgiveness,
and promised that they will have divine power.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
The Only Cure for the Disease that the entire Human Race has:
Jesus Christ, The Savior of the World!

“A Word From Casey!”
Dr. Winfield Casey Jones is a Retired Pastor from the First Presbyerian Church of Pearland, TX, He can be reached at: wrjones2002@gmail.com

Do Not Fear Those Who Can Kill Only the Body

December 07, 2017

What if someone broke into your house and threatened to kill you? How do you think you or I might react?

What if you were about to be killed because of your faith in Christ? What do you think you would say or do?

Or what if the fears of some came true, and the nuclear bombs began to fall?  How do you think we would respond? Does the Bible have anything to say to us about such horrible and catastrophic events?

Earlier this week I read a scripture in which Jesus specifically addresses such fears. (I had not read it in a while, and it got my attention precisely because I myself have feared the kinds of things I just mentioned.)  Jesus said, “And do not fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can kill both body and soul in hell.” (Matthew 10:28).

These words of Jesus are sobering to say the least. But they are also comforting!

Imagine you were a Christian in a part of the world where some people wanted to kill you just because you believed Jesus is the Son of God. Your potential persecutors would of course want you to fear them, but would they have ever heard this verse where Jesus says not to fear those who can kill only the body but instead to fear only Him who can destroy both body and soul in hell? (Then your persecutors would be the ones who should be afraid for what they are about to do!)

Persecution, and even being killed for our faith, can happen in America. Christians have been shot in church worshipping God. It happened at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, S.C. and at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.  Be honest. Have you feared that? Could such a fear keep you from going to church? Jesus says that a crazy shooter could kill your body but not your soul, and for that reason you should not fear such a person! He says you and I should fear only the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell.

Morning …

1 Thessalonians 5:6
Let us not sleep, as do others.

There are many ways of promoting Christian wakefulness. Among the rest, let me strongly advise Christians to converse together concerning the ways of the Lord. Christian and Hopeful, as they journeyed towards the Celestial City, said to themselves, “To prevent drowsiness in this place, let us fall into good discourse.” Christian enquired, “Brother, where shall we begin?” And Hopeful answered, “Where God began with us.” Then Christian sang this song-

“When saints do sleepy grow, let them come hither,
And hear how these two pilgrims talk together;
Yea, let them learn of them, in any wise,
Thus to keep open their drowsy slumb’ring eyes.
Saints’ fellowship, if it be managed well,
Keeps them awake, and that in spite of hell.”

Christians who isolate themselves and walk alone, are very liable to grow drowsy. Hold Christian company, and you will be kept wakeful by it, and refreshed and encouraged to make quicker progress in the road to heaven. But as you thus take “sweet counsel” with others in the ways of God, take care that the theme of your converse is the Lord Jesus. Let the eye of faith be constantly looking unto Him; let your heart be full of Him; let your lips speak of His worth. Friend, live near to the cross, and thou wilt not sleep. Labour to impress thyself with a deep sense of the value of the place to which thou art going. If thou rememberest that thou art going to heaven, thou wilt not sleep on the road. If thou thinkest that hell is behind thee, and the devil pursuing thee, thou wilt not loiter. Would the manslayer sleep with the avenger of blood behind him, and the city of refuge before him? Christian, wilt thou sleep whilst the pearly gates are open-the songs of angels waiting for thee to join them-a crown of gold ready for thy brow? Ah! no; in holy fellowship continue to watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

God continues to bless Sagemont Church.  In the last two Sundays, over 100 people have made public decisions to make Jesus Christ Lord of their life.  Pastors Chuck Schneider, Stuart Rothberg, and Jim Hastings have been teaching the scriptures as both the Old and New Testaments prophesy and proclaim that Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth again to claim and receive His children unto Himself.  During the worship services, I am preaching the message and promise of the return of Christ.

One may ask, “Pastor, why do you passionately believe that Jesus is literally going to return to the earth?”  These are a few reasons:

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

  1.  Jesus said He would!  John 14:3 “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
  2.  The entire Christian view of history demands it.
  3. The prophetic signs found in scripture are now clearly being fulfilled.
  • Earthquakes all over the globe.  Matthew 24:7 – (over 20,000 since 1971)
  • Hearts will fail for fear.  Luke 21:26 –  Suicides are epidemic.
  • Great explosions of learning.  II Timothy 3:7 – People cannot discern the truth.
  • Immorality abounds.  Luke 17:26-27 – Like the days of Noah.

Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus will come to save His children and judge the rest.

God and Churchill

godchurchillI have just completed reading one of the best books that I have read in the last twenty years.  God and Churchill, written by one of our newest Sagemont members Jonathan Sandys (pronounced “sands”), great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.  Wallace Henley, staff member at Second Baptist Church, Houston, assisted Jonathan in this profound book.  The purpose of the book is to make clear “how the great leader’s sense of divine destiny changed his troubled world and offers help for ours.”  Tyndale Momentum is the publisher.  The book has many profound quotes.  However, there is one that has impacted my life more than many others.  Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, addressing the Church of Scotland General Assembly in 1988, said “I think back to many discussions in my early life when we all agreed that if you try to take the fruits of Christianity without its roots, the fruits will wither.  And they will not come back unless you nurture the roots.”

One of the responsibilities of the Bride of Christ, the Church, is to keep Christianity on track and prevent the derailing of His ultimate purpose.  The paganism that is engulfing us today will ultimately destroy us unless we return to the roots of our faith.  “Our faith is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”  It is on the solid rock we must stand for truly all other ground is sinking sand.

Note:  The book God and Churchill is available in the Sagemont Bookstore.

Are you working toward holiness?
BIBLE MEDITATION:
“For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” 
Leviticus 11:44
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Some people think that to be holy means to be odd—really strange. No, we’re to be different. We have too many Christians doing—sometimes nutty, sometimes unbiblical—things, who claim to be holy when in reality they are just odd.
Holiness is not achieved by what we wear, where we sleep and eat, or how many spiritual things we do. It is not primarily a matter of dress or style of hair. And we don’t become holy if we live in a commune, monastery, or convent.
God makes us holy by the blood of His Son. And in return for this great love, we endeavor to live holy lives because we love Him. “Holy” is a state of being, not doing. It is a God-induced, God-developed character trait that grows in us as we grow in our love relationship with God.
ACTION POINT:
Instead of trying to think of ways in which you can appear to be holy or trying to convince God that you are, I recommend this: in humble submission to the One who loves you more than anyone else, ask Him: “Lord, I’m your servant. Show me throughout this day how best to honor You and serve You.”

The Word, Necessary Food
“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”  
(Matthew 4:4).

If God so willed it we could live without bread, even as Jesus did for forty days; but we could not live without His Word. By that Word we were created, and by it alone can we be kept in being, for he sustaineth all things by the Word of His power. Bread is a second cause; the LORD Himself is the first source of our sustenance. He can work without the second cause as well as with it; and we must not tie Him down to one mode of operation. Let us not be too eager after the visible, but let us look to the invisible God. We have heard believers say that in deep poverty, when bread ran short, their appetites became short, too; and to others, when common supplies failed, the LORD has sent in unexpected help.

But we must have the Word of the LORD. With this alone we can withstand the devil. Take this from us, and our enemy will have us in his power, for we shall soon faint. Our souls need food, and there is none for them outside of the Word of the LORD. All the books and all the preachers in the world cannot furnish us a single meal: it is only the Word from the mouth of God that can fill the mouth of a believer. LORD, evermore give us this bread. We prize it above royal dainties.

============================================================================


JULY 5
For the Vision is yet for an appointed time…though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry (Hab. 2:3).
In the charming little booklet, Expectation Corner, Adam Slowman was led into the Lord’s treasure houses, and among many other wonders there revealed to him was the “Delayed Blessings Office,” where God kept certain things, prayed for, until the wise time came to send them.
It takes a long time for some pensioners to learn that delays are not denials. Ah, there are secrets of love and wisdom in the “Delayed Blessings Department,” which are little dreamt of! Men would pluck their mercies green when the Lord would have them ripe.
“Therefore will the Lord WAIT, that He may be gracious unto you” (Isa. 30:18). He is watching in the hard places and will not allow one trial too many; He will let the dross be consumed, and then He will come gloriously to your help.
Do not grieve Him by doubting His love. Nay, lift up your head, and begin to praise Him even now for the deliverance which is on the way to you, and you will be abundantly rewarded for the delay which has tried your faith.
O Thou of little faith,
God hath not failed thee yet!
When all looks dark and gloomy,
Thou dost so soon forget–
Forget that He has led thee,
And gently cleared thy way;
On clouds has poured His sunshine,
And turned thy night to day.
And if He’s helped thee hitherto,
He will not fail thee now;
How it must wound His loving heart
To see thy anxious brow!
Oh! doubt not any longer,
To Him commit thy way,
Whom in the past thou trusted,
And is “just the same today.”

Happy Sunday Morning Friends:
It is just after 5AM, I just finished lifting up my morning Prayers
to my GOD in Heaven and He placed it upon my heart to be sure
that you knew this:
I ASSURE you that it is straight from Him and that He wanted me to tell YOU!
As you can see, this morning’s Blog is entitled:
“You Are A Wanted Child!”
Here is the simple message that GOD placed upon my heart to tell you:
1.) GOD Truly does LOVE YOU;
2.) He wants you to be in Heaven with Him when you die;
3.) But there is a PROBLEM: Since Adam & Eve’s BIG mistake,
   the entire Human Race has been infected with a disease,
   And there is ONLY ONE CURE!
   If you don’t get cured of this disease, you cannot get into Heaven with GOD:
   The disease is SIN, The ONLY cure for it is Jesus Christ.
   See, GOD is the Sovereign King and Creator of the Universe.
   He sets the Rules!
   His Rule is that you cannot have the Disease called Sin and get into Heaven for Eternity;
   If you die without the only Cure: Jesus Christ: You will be Eternally separated
   from GOD and at the Great White Throne Judgment,
   described in Revelation Chapter 20,
   if you still have that Disease, Angels will take you and toss you into
   the Lake of Fire… for Eternity, there will be no end.
   On the other hand, if you accept the Cure that our Sovereign GOD
   has provided, you will spend Eternity in Heaven, with Him!
   Again: GOD does LOVE you and He wants you in Heaven with Him!
   Over 2,000 years ago, GOD showed His Mercy upon the entire Human Race
   by sending His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the CURE for the Disease, to Shed His
   Sin-Free Blood and Die on that Cross outside of Jerusalem
   as Payment, the CURE for your sins, ALL of them!
   You will be Cured of the disease if, on Faith:
      (That is: Just BELIEVE this Cure because GOD Said it is the Cure:
   Faith is NOT a feeling or emotion, it is just a belief in GOD’s Promises!
   John 3:16 makes it Very Clear:
      FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN
      SON, THAT WHOSOEVER (YOU) BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL HAVE
      EVERLASTING (ETERNAL) LIFE!)
Now: Here is what our Sovereign GOD has Ruled regarding that word:
BELIEVETH IN HIM:
1.) Believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross at Calvary in payment for your Sins,
ALL OF THEM;
2.) Believe that His Dead Body was placed in a Borrowed Tomb;
3.) That He Arose from the Dead (Was Resurrected) on the 3rd Day
We now call Easter;
4.) Was seen by over 500 people here on earth after His Resurrection and;
5.) Ascended back into Heaven in front of the Galileans;
(Acts 1:9-12)
6.)To sit upon His Throne at the Right-Hand of GOD His/our Father,
As our High Priest, Advocate, LORD and Savior.
If you believe that, on Faith, and will say this simple Prayer:
LORD, I confess that I am a sinner,
By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal LORD & Savior,
I Repent of all of my sins and ask You to forgive my sins,
I give control of my life over to Jesus,
In Jesus’ Precious Name I Pray,
Amen.
It is so simple, if you said that Prayer and truly meant it,
You now are Cured of the Disease called sin and have your
Lifetime Ticket, AS OF RIGHT NOW,
Into Heaven!
You have been Born Again, Spiritually, into the Kingdom of Heaven!
Welcome!
Now: Find a good Christian Church near where you live,
Attend regularly and Worship with your fellow Christians,
Start reading & studying your Bible:
The Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word of GOD,
Pray OFTEN to Him by telling Him that:
1.) You Adore Him,
2.) Confess your sins to Him, because, although you have
been forgiven of your sins, you are STILL going to occasionally sin,
But, as a Born-Again Christian, you will not enjoy it and,
You will fall out of Fellowship with Him if you don’t confess your sins
to Him and ask forgiveness: You STILL have your place in Heaven,
You can NEVER lose that once you have accepted Jesus
As your Personal Savior, but you should daily, Pray to GOD, in the Name of Jesus,
And confess and ask forgiveness of you sins.
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Please see the 10 Commandments: Exodus Chapter 20:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
3.) Thank Him for the Blessings you have received;
4.) Although He already knows it: Tell Him about your needs
And Thank Him for providing them for you, in other words:
Pray with the Faith that GOD will provide all of those needs
For yourself and others that you Pray for!
Thank you for taking the time to read this message that The LORD
placed upon my heart this morning!
Please feel free to copy and forward this Plan of Salvation to any and all of your Contacts:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Luke 9:26 and Mark 8:38
If anyone is Ashamed of Me on earth, I shall be ashamed of him in Heaven.)

(We HAVE to tell others about Jesus: He commanded us in The Great Commission:
In Mark 16:14–18, Luke 24:44–49, Acts 1:4–8, and John 20:19–23. As Jesus
was ascending back into Heaven, He told the disciples to preach repentance and forgiveness,
and promised that they will have divine power.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
The Only Cure for the Disease that the entire Human Race has:
Jesus Christ, The Savior of the World!

Today, we are starting a Weekly feature called:
“A Word From Casey!”
Dr. Winfield Casey Jones is a Retired Pastor from the First Presbyerian Church of Pearland, TX, He can be reached at: wrjones2002@gmail.com

Do Not Fear Those Who Can Kill Only the Body

December 07, 2017

What if someone broke into your house and threatened to kill you? How do you think you or I might react?

What if you were about to be killed because of your faith in Christ? What do you think you would say or do?

Or what if the fears of some came true, and the nuclear bombs began to fall?  How do you think we would respond? Does the Bible have anything to say to us about such horrible and catastrophic events?

Earlier this week I read a scripture in which Jesus specifically addresses such fears. (I had not read it in a while, and it got my attention precisely because I myself have feared the kinds of things I just mentioned.)  Jesus said, “And do not fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can kill both body and soul in hell.” (Matthew 10:28).

These words of Jesus are sobering to say the least. But they are also comforting!

Imagine you were a Christian in a part of the world where some people wanted to kill you just because you believed Jesus is the Son of God. Your potential persecutors would of course want you to fear them, but would they have ever heard this verse where Jesus says not to fear those who can kill only the body but instead to fear only Him who can destroy both body and soul in hell? (Then your persecutors would be the ones who should be afraid for what they are about to do!)

Persecution, and even being killed for our faith, can happen in America. Christians have been shot in church worshipping God. It happened at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, S.C. and at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.  Be honest. Have you feared that? Could such a fear keep you from going to church? Jesus says that a crazy shooter could kill your body but not your soul, and for that reason you should not fear such a person! He says you and I should fear only the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell.

Morning …

1 Thessalonians 5:6
Let us not sleep, as do others.

There are many ways of promoting Christian wakefulness. Among the rest, let me strongly advise Christians to converse together concerning the ways of the Lord. Christian and Hopeful, as they journeyed towards the Celestial City, said to themselves, “To prevent drowsiness in this place, let us fall into good discourse.” Christian enquired, “Brother, where shall we begin?” And Hopeful answered, “Where God began with us.” Then Christian sang this song-

“When saints do sleepy grow, let them come hither,
And hear how these two pilgrims talk together;
Yea, let them learn of them, in any wise,
Thus to keep open their drowsy slumb’ring eyes.
Saints’ fellowship, if it be managed well,
Keeps them awake, and that in spite of hell.”

Christians who isolate themselves and walk alone, are very liable to grow drowsy. Hold Christian company, and you will be kept wakeful by it, and refreshed and encouraged to make quicker progress in the road to heaven. But as you thus take “sweet counsel” with others in the ways of God, take care that the theme of your converse is the Lord Jesus. Let the eye of faith be constantly looking unto Him; let your heart be full of Him; let your lips speak of His worth. Friend, live near to the cross, and thou wilt not sleep. Labour to impress thyself with a deep sense of the value of the place to which thou art going. If thou rememberest that thou art going to heaven, thou wilt not sleep on the road. If thou thinkest that hell is behind thee, and the devil pursuing thee, thou wilt not loiter. Would the manslayer sleep with the avenger of blood behind him, and the city of refuge before him? Christian, wilt thou sleep whilst the pearly gates are open-the songs of angels waiting for thee to join them-a crown of gold ready for thy brow? Ah! no; in holy fellowship continue to watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

God continues to bless Sagemont Church.  In the last two Sundays, over 100 people have made public decisions to make Jesus Christ Lord of their life.  Pastors Chuck Schneider, Stuart Rothberg, and Jim Hastings have been teaching the scriptures as both the Old and New Testaments prophesy and proclaim that Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth again to claim and receive His children unto Himself.  During the worship services, I am preaching the message and promise of the return of Christ.

One may ask, “Pastor, why do you passionately believe that Jesus is literally going to return to the earth?”  These are a few reasons:

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

  1.  Jesus said He would!  John 14:3 “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
  2.  The entire Christian view of history demands it.
  3. The prophetic signs found in scripture are now clearly being fulfilled.
  • Earthquakes all over the globe.  Matthew 24:7 – (over 20,000 since 1971)
  • Hearts will fail for fear.  Luke 21:26 –  Suicides are epidemic.
  • Great explosions of learning.  II Timothy 3:7 – People cannot discern the truth.
  • Immorality abounds.  Luke 17:26-27 – Like the days of Noah.

Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus will come to save His children and judge the rest.

God and Churchill

godchurchillI have just completed reading one of the best books that I have read in the last twenty years.  God and Churchill, written by one of our newest Sagemont members Jonathan Sandys (pronounced “sands”), great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.  Wallace Henley, staff member at Second Baptist Church, Houston, assisted Jonathan in this profound book.  The purpose of the book is to make clear “how the great leader’s sense of divine destiny changed his troubled world and offers help for ours.”  Tyndale Momentum is the publisher.  The book has many profound quotes.  However, there is one that has impacted my life more than many others.  Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, addressing the Church of Scotland General Assembly in 1988, said “I think back to many discussions in my early life when we all agreed that if you try to take the fruits of Christianity without its roots, the fruits will wither.  And they will not come back unless you nurture the roots.”

One of the responsibilities of the Bride of Christ, the Church, is to keep Christianity on track and prevent the derailing of His ultimate purpose.  The paganism that is engulfing us today will ultimately destroy us unless we return to the roots of our faith.  “Our faith is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”  It is on the solid rock we must stand for truly all other ground is sinking sand.

Note:  The book God and Churchill is available in the Sagemont Bookstore.

Hymn writer Fanny Crosby wrote, “Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it! Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb; Redeemed through His infinite mercy, His child and forever I am.” Do you love to proclaim it? Oh, how I pray you do.
Isaac Watts wrote, “Were the whole realm of nature mine, that were a present far too small: Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all.” Have you given your soul, your life, your all to this Amazing Love?
ACTION POINT:
Jesus did not bathe this planet with His blood to have you serve the world, the flesh, and the devil. He died to make you holy. You are not your own. First Corinthians 6:20 says, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

A Guide All the Way
“He will be my guide even unto death”   (Psalm 48:14).

We need a guide. Sometimes we would give all that we have to be told exactly what to do and where to turn. We are willing to do right, but we do not know which one of two roads we are to follow. Oh, for a guide!

The LORD our God condescends to serve us as guide. He knows the way and will pilot us along it till we reach our journey’s end in peace. Surely we do not desire more infallible direction. Let us place ourselves absolutely under His guidance, and we shall never miss our way. Let us make Him our God, and we shall find Him our guide. If we follow His law we shall not miss the right road of life, provided we first learn to lean upon Him in every step that we take.

Our comfort is that as He is our God forever and ever, He will never cease to be with us as our guide. “Even unto death” will He lead us, and then we shall dwell with Him eternally and go no more out forever. This promise of divine guidance involves lifelong security: salvation at once, guidance unto our last hour, and then endless blessedness. Should not each one seek this in youth, rejoice in it in middle life, and repose in it in old age? This day let us look up for guidance before we trust ourselves out-of-doors.

JULY 4
Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? (Isa. 28:24).
One day in early summer I walked past a beautiful meadow. The grass was as soft and thick and fine as an immense green Oriental rug. In one corner stood a fine old tree, a sanctuary for numberless wild birds; the crisp, sweet air was full of their happy songs. Two cows lay in the shade, the very picture of content. Down by the roadside the saucy dandelion mingled his gold with the royal purple of the wild violet. I leaned against the fence for a long time, feasting my hungry eyes, and thinking in my soul that God never made a fairer spot than my lovely meadow.
The next day I passed that way again, and lo! the hand of the despoiler had been there. A plowman and his great plow, now standing idle in the furrow, had in a day wrought a terrible havoc. Instead of the green grass there was turned up to view the ugly, bare, brown earth; instead of the singing birds there were only a few hens industriously scratching for worms. Gone were the dandelion and the pretty violet. I said in my grief, “How could any one spoil a thing so fair?”
Then my eyes were opened by some unseen hand, and I saw a vision, a vision of a field of ripe corn ready for the harvest. I could see the giant, heavily laden stalks in the autumn sun; I could almost hear the music of the wind as it would sweep across the golden tassels. And before I was aware, the brown earth took on a splendor it had not had the day before.
Oh, that we might always catch the vision of an abundant harvest, when the great Master Plowman comes, as He often does, and furrows through our very souls, uprooting and turning under that which we thought most fair, and leaving for our tortured gaze only the bare and the unbeautiful.
–Selected
Why should I start at the plough of my Lord, that maketh the deep furrows on my soul? I know He is no idle husbandman, He purposeth a crop.
–Samuel Rutherford

Happy Sunday Morning Friends:
It is just after 5AM, I just finished lifting up my morning Prayers
to my GOD in Heaven and He placed it upon my heart to be sure
that you knew this:
I ASSURE you that it is straight from Him and that He wanted me to tell YOU!
As you can see, this morning’s Blog is entitled:
“You Are A Wanted Child!”
Here is the simple message that GOD placed upon my heart to tell you:
1.) GOD Truly does LOVE YOU;
2.) He wants you to be in Heaven with Him when you die;
3.) But there is a PROBLEM: Since Adam & Eve’s BIG mistake,
   the entire Human Race has been infected with a disease,
   And there is ONLY ONE CURE!
   If you don’t get cured of this disease, you cannot get into Heaven with GOD:
   The disease is SIN, The ONLY cure for it is Jesus Christ.
   See, GOD is the Sovereign King and Creator of the Universe.
   He sets the Rules!
   His Rule is that you cannot have the Disease called Sin and get into Heaven for Eternity;
   If you die without the only Cure: Jesus Christ: You will be Eternally separated
   from GOD and at the Great White Throne Judgment,
   described in Revelation Chapter 20,
   if you still have that Disease, Angels will take you and toss you into
   the Lake of Fire… for Eternity, there will be no end.
   On the other hand, if you accept the Cure that our Sovereign GOD
   has provided, you will spend Eternity in Heaven, with Him!
   Again: GOD does LOVE you and He wants you in Heaven with Him!
   Over 2,000 years ago, GOD showed His Mercy upon the entire Human Race
   by sending His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the CURE for the Disease, to Shed His
   Sin-Free Blood and Die on that Cross outside of Jerusalem
   as Payment, the CURE for your sins, ALL of them!
   You will be Cured of the disease if, on Faith:
      (That is: Just BELIEVE this Cure because GOD Said it is the Cure:
   Faith is NOT a feeling or emotion, it is just a belief in GOD’s Promises!
   John 3:16 makes it Very Clear:
      FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN
      SON, THAT WHOSOEVER (YOU) BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL HAVE
      EVERLASTING (ETERNAL) LIFE!)
Now: Here is what our Sovereign GOD has Ruled regarding that word:
BELIEVETH IN HIM:
1.) Believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross at Calvary in payment for your Sins,
ALL OF THEM;
2.) Believe that His Dead Body was placed in a Borrowed Tomb;
3.) That He Arose from the Dead (Was Resurrected) on the 3rd Day
We now call Easter;
4.) Was seen by over 500 people here on earth after His Resurrection and;
5.) Ascended back into Heaven in front of the Galileans;
(Acts 1:9-12)
6.)To sit upon His Throne at the Right-Hand of GOD His/our Father,
As our High Priest, Advocate, LORD and Savior.
If you believe that, on Faith, and will say this simple Prayer:
LORD, I confess that I am a sinner,
By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal LORD & Savior,
I Repent of all of my sins and ask You to forgive my sins,
I give control of my life over to Jesus,
In Jesus’ Precious Name I Pray,
Amen.
It is so simple, if you said that Prayer and truly meant it,
You now are Cured of the Disease called sin and have your
Lifetime Ticket, AS OF RIGHT NOW,
Into Heaven!
You have been Born Again, Spiritually, into the Kingdom of Heaven!
Welcome!
Now: Find a good Christian Church near where you live,
Attend regularly and Worship with your fellow Christians,
Start reading & studying your Bible:
The Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word of GOD,
Pray OFTEN to Him by telling Him that:
1.) You Adore Him,
2.) Confess your sins to Him, because, although you have
been forgiven of your sins, you are STILL going to occasionally sin,
But, as a Born-Again Christian, you will not enjoy it and,
You will fall out of Fellowship with Him if you don’t confess your sins
to Him and ask forgiveness: You STILL have your place in Heaven,
You can NEVER lose that once you have accepted Jesus
As your Personal Savior, but you should daily, Pray to GOD, in the Name of Jesus,
And confess and ask forgiveness of you sins.
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Please see the 10 Commandments: Exodus Chapter 20:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
3.) Thank Him for the Blessings you have received;
4.) Although He already knows it: Tell Him about your needs
And Thank Him for providing them for you, in other words:
Pray with the Faith that GOD will provide all of those needs
For yourself and others that you Pray for!
Thank you for taking the time to read this message that The LORD
placed upon my heart this morning!
Please feel free to copy and forward this Plan of Salvation to any and all of your Contacts:
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(Luke 9:26 and Mark 8:38
If anyone is Ashamed of Me on earth, I shall be ashamed of him in Heaven.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
(We HAVE to tell others about Jesus: He commanded us in The Great Commission:
In Mark 16:14–18, Luke 24:44–49, Acts 1:4–8, and John 20:19–23. As Jesus
was ascending back into Heaven, He told the disciples to preach repentance and forgiveness,
and promised that they will have divine power.)
<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
The Only Cure for the Disease that the entire Human Race has:
Jesus Christ, The Savior of the World!

“A Word From Casey!”

Do Not Fear Those Who Can Kill Only the Body

December 07, 2017

What if someone broke into your house and threatened to kill you? How do you think you or I might react?

What if you were about to be killed because of your faith in Christ? What do you think you would say or do?

Or what if the fears of some came true, and the nuclear bombs began to fall?  How do you think we would respond? Does the Bible have anything to say to us about such horrible and catastrophic events?

Earlier this week I read a scripture in which Jesus specifically addresses such fears. (I had not read it in a while, and it got my attention precisely because I myself have feared the kinds of things I just mentioned.)  Jesus said, “And do not fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can kill both body and soul in hell.” (Matthew 10:28).

These words of Jesus are sobering to say the least. But they are also comforting!

Imagine you were a Christian in a part of the world where some people wanted to kill you just because you believed Jesus is the Son of God. Your potential persecutors would of course want you to fear them, but would they have ever heard this verse where Jesus says not to fear those who can kill only the body but instead to fear only Him who can destroy both body and soul in hell? (Then your persecutors would be the ones who should be afraid for what they are about to do!)

Persecution, and even being killed for our faith, can happen in America. Christians have been shot in church worshipping God. It happened at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, S.C. and at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.  Be honest. Have you feared that? Could such a fear keep you from going to church? Jesus says that a crazy shooter could kill your body but not your soul, and for that reason you should not fear such a person! He says you and I should fear only the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell.

Morning …

1 Thessalonians 5:6
Let us not sleep, as do others.

There are many ways of promoting Christian wakefulness. Among the rest, let me strongly advise Christians to converse together concerning the ways of the Lord. Christian and Hopeful, as they journeyed towards the Celestial City, said to themselves, “To prevent drowsiness in this place, let us fall into good discourse.” Christian enquired, “Brother, where shall we begin?” And Hopeful answered, “Where God began with us.” Then Christian sang this song-

“When saints do sleepy grow, let them come hither,
And hear how these two pilgrims talk together;
Yea, let them learn of them, in any wise,
Thus to keep open their drowsy slumb’ring eyes.
Saints’ fellowship, if it be managed well,
Keeps them awake, and that in spite of hell.”

Christians who isolate themselves and walk alone, are very liable to grow drowsy. Hold Christian company, and you will be kept wakeful by it, and refreshed and encouraged to make quicker progress in the road to heaven. But as you thus take “sweet counsel” with others in the ways of God, take care that the theme of your converse is the Lord Jesus. Let the eye of faith be constantly looking unto Him; let your heart be full of Him; let your lips speak of His worth. Friend, live near to the cross, and thou wilt not sleep. Labour to impress thyself with a deep sense of the value of the place to which thou art going. If thou rememberest that thou art going to heaven, thou wilt not sleep on the road. If thou thinkest that hell is behind thee, and the devil pursuing thee, thou wilt not loiter. Would the manslayer sleep with the avenger of blood behind him, and the city of refuge before him? Christian, wilt thou sleep whilst the pearly gates are open-the songs of angels waiting for thee to join them-a crown of gold ready for thy brow? Ah! no; in holy fellowship continue to watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

God continues to bless Sagemont Church.  In the last two Sundays, over 100 people have made public decisions to make Jesus Christ Lord of their life.  Pastors Chuck Schneider, Stuart Rothberg, and Jim Hastings have been teaching the scriptures as both the Old and New Testaments prophesy and proclaim that Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth again to claim and receive His children unto Himself.  During the worship services, I am preaching the message and promise of the return of Christ.

One may ask, “Pastor, why do you passionately believe that Jesus is literally going to return to the earth?”  These are a few reasons:

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

  1.  Jesus said He would!  John 14:3 “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
  2.  The entire Christian view of history demands it.
  3. The prophetic signs found in scripture are now clearly being fulfilled.
  • Earthquakes all over the globe.  Matthew 24:7 – (over 20,000 since 1971)
  • Hearts will fail for fear.  Luke 21:26 –  Suicides are epidemic.
  • Great explosions of learning.  II Timothy 3:7 – People cannot discern the truth.
  • Immorality abounds.  Luke 17:26-27 – Like the days of Noah.

Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus will come to save His children and judge the rest.

God and Churchill

godchurchillI have just completed reading one of the best books that I have read in the last twenty years.  God and Churchill, written by one of our newest Sagemont members Jonathan Sandys (pronounced “sands”), great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.  Wallace Henley, staff member at Second Baptist Church, Houston, assisted Jonathan in this profound book.  The purpose of the book is to make clear “how the great leader’s sense of divine destiny changed his troubled world and offers help for ours.”  Tyndale Momentum is the publisher.  The book has many profound quotes.  However, there is one that has impacted my life more than many others.  Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, addressing the Church of Scotland General Assembly in 1988, said “I think back to many discussions in my early life when we all agreed that if you try to take the fruits of Christianity without its roots, the fruits will wither.  And they will not come back unless you nurture the roots.”

One of the responsibilities of the Bride of Christ, the Church, is to keep Christianity on track and prevent the derailing of His ultimate purpose.  The paganism that is engulfing us today will ultimately destroy us unless we return to the roots of our faith.  “Our faith is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”  It is on the solid rock we must stand for truly all other ground is sinking sand.

Note:  The book God and Churchill is available in the Sagemont Bookstore.
