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.”

What do you usually pray about?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Luke 19:10
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Do you know what the most frequent prayer request is about? Physical healing.
“Pray for my aunt who’s a Christian—she’s about to die.”
“Pray for my uncle. He’s saved, but he’s having heart surgery.”
But how many prayer meetings have you been to where people asked for prayer for their lost neighbor who is going to hell?
More often than not, we’re more interested in keeping the saints out of heaven than keeping the lost out of hell.
It’s not wrong to pray for our saved loved ones facing a crisis, but how much more urgent to pray for those who, if they died today, would go out into a dark, Christ-less eternity?
It’s not a tragedy to die and go to heaven. It is a tragedy to die and go to hell.
Friend, it’s time we elevated our prayers outside the physical realm of life into the spiritual realm.
ACTION POINT:
Take a look at your prayer list today—where are the lost who need to be saved? What are you doing to help them find their way?
==============================================
The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”

Sufferers Make Strong Believers
“It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth” 

(Lamentations 3:27).

This is as good as a promise. It has been good, it is good, and it will be good for me to bear the yoke. Early in life I had to feel the weight of conviction, and ever since it has proved a soul-enriching burden. Should I have loved the gospel so well had I not learned by deep experience the need of salvation by grace? Jabez was more honorable than his brethren because his mother bare him with sorrow, and those who suffer much in being born unto God make strong believers in sovereign grace. The yoke of censure is an irksome one, but it prepares a man for future honor. He is not fit to be a leader who has not run the gauntlet of contempt. Praise intoxicates if it be not preceded by abuse. Men who rise to eminence without struggle usually fall into dishonor. The yoke of affliction, disappointment, and excessive labor is by no means to be sought for; but when the LORD lays it on us in our youth, it frequently develops a character which glorifies God and blesses the church. Come, my soul, bow thy neck; take up they cross. It was good for thee when young; it will not harm thee now. For Jesus’ sake, shoulder it carefully.

 

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

SEPTEMBER 12
“And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise”
(Heb. 6:15).
Abraham was long tried, but he was richly rewarded. The Lord tried him by delaying to fulfill His promise. Satan tried him by temptation; men tried him by jealousy, distrust, and opposition; Sarah tried him by her peevishness. But he patiently endured. He did not question God’s veracity, nor limit His power, nor doubt His faithfulness, nor grieve His love; but he bowed to Divine Sovereignty, submitted to Infinite Wisdom, and was silent under delays, waiting the Lord’s time. And so, having patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
God’s promises cannot fail of their accomplishment. Patient waiters cannot be disappointed. Believing expectation shall be realized. Beloved, Abraham’s conduct condemns a hasty spirit, reproves a murmuring one, commends a patient one, and encourages quiet submission to God’s will and way.
Remember, Abraham was tried; he patiently waited; he received the promise, and was satisfied. Imitate his example, and you will share the same blessing.

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

That He truly wants you to be in Heaven with Him,

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

Since Adam & Eve sinned against GOD over 6,000 years ago

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

John 3:16 makes it very clear. These 25-words, that Jesus spoke to Nicodemus,

 

and to us:

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

If you believe that verse, on Faith, that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son,

 

Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago, to shed His Blood and Die

 

on that Cross at Calvary in payment for ALL of your sins AND for all of the

 

sins of the entire human race, was buried in a borrowed tomb, rose from

 

the dead on the 3rd Day we now call Easter, was seen by at least 500 people

 

after His Resurrection and ascended back into Heaven to sit on His Throne at GOD’s

 

Right-Hand-Side and you can lift up this Prayer to our

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

“Lord, I confess that I am a sinner. By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my

 

Personal Lord and Savior, I repent of my sins and give Christ total control of my life,

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

If you can say that Prayer, right now as you sit in front of your computer screen,

 

GOD will accept that Special Prayer, there will be Rejoicing in Heaven

 

and you will be Spiritually Born Again. Your name will be written in

 

the Lamb’s Book of Life as a Christian and you will, from that moment

 

until you die, and forever afterwards, have Eternal Life with GOD

 

the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit in Heaven.

 

Right now, you really have a choice, to accept Christ as your Personal Savior

 

or Reject Him.

 

If you reject Him and you die tonight or anytime in the future before

 

accepting Him, you will come under a very important verse in the

 

Last Book in the Holy Bible, the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

This will occur at the Great White Throne of Judgment described in:

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

Friend: Again I say: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you and WANT you to be in Heaven

 

with them but you MUST Cure yourself of the Disease of sin, and Jesus is the ONLY WAY.

 

All I can do is tell you. You must open your heart to the Holy Spirit and, by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior. You have been told: The decision is yours: Accept Him or Reject Him.

 

Lord, I lift up the person reading this statement that You have placed upon my heart to write.

 

PLEASE open this Precious Person’s Heart, whom I know that You Love, to Your Holy Spirit

 

so they will, by Faith, accept your Precious Son, Jesus, as their Personal Savior,

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

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.

His Great Commission, as He ascended back into Heaven while on the road to Bethany was:

The Great Commission!

====================================================
QUESTION!
Do you want to live as long as GOD lives (Eternity – NO END!)
You can!
Just Believe that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son to this earth
to shed His Blood and Die on the Cross at Calvary for your sins
and for the sins of the entire human race;
Was buried in a borrowed tomb, arose from the dead on the 3rd Day
(Easter), Was seen by over 500 people after His Resurrection and
ascended back into Heaven to sit at the Right-Hand of
His Father,  God, as our
High Priest, Advocate, Lord and Savior;
If you truly believe that to be true, and believe me and the Holy Bible:
IT IS TRUE! And you can say this Prayer to God, the Father:
“Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You, I Repent of my sins and
by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and give Him
total control of my Life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Saying that Prayer, you have been Born Again, Spiritually, and have
your ticket to Heaven to be with The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and
all other Christians for Eternity! There is Rejoicing in Heaven over your
Decision!
Welcome!

Are you tired of waiting on God?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. Psalm 27:14
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Do you know the story of Joshua and how the wall of Jericho fell down? Some people haven’t heard the whole story. They think the Israelites just marched up to it, gave a shout, and “the walls came a-tumblin’ down.” Not at all.
Following God’s orders to Joshua, the Israelites marched around it once a day for six days. Then on the seventh day, they marched around it seven times before they gave the shout. Then the wall collapsed!
Now, why not just walk around Jericho one time? Why would God make them go around it for seven days? I think it was because God was testing their faith.
God was teaching them that waiting time is not wasted time. Isaiah 28:16 says, “He that believeth shall not make haste.” God is never in a hurry, like we are. We get upset when we miss a section in a revolving door! God is also never late. He knows what He is doing.
ACTION POINT:
Do you know what our problem is? We’ve been around Jericho six times and we’re ready to quit. Don’t do it. Stay the course. Say with the psalmist: “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him” (Psalm 62:5).
==============================================
The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”

Coming In; Going Out
“Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out”  
(Deuteronomy 28:6).
The blessings of the law are not canceled. Jesus confirmed the promise when He bore the penalty. If I keep the commands of my LORD, I may appropriate this promise without question. This day I will come in to my house without fear of evil tidings, and I will come in to my closet expecting to hear good news from my LORD. I will not be afraid to come in unto myself by self-examination, nor to come in to my affairs by a diligent inspection of my business. I have a good deal of work to do indoors, within my own soul; oh, for a blessing upon it all, the blessing of the LORD Jesus, who has promised to abide with me. I must also go out. Timidity makes me wish that I could stay within doors and never go into the sinful world again. But I must go out in my calling, and I must go out that I may be helpful to my brethren and useful to the ungodly. I must be a defender of the faith and an assailant of evil. Oh, for a blessing upon my going out this day! LORD, let me go where Thou leadest, on Thy errands, under Thy command, and in the power of Thy Spirit. LORD Jesus, turn in with me and be my guest; and then walk out with me and cause my heart to burn while You speak with me by the way.


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

SEPTEMBER 11
The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me
(Ps. 138:8).
There is a Divine mystery in suffering, a strange and supernatural power in it, which has never been fathomed by the human reason. There never has been known great saintliness of soul which did not pass through great suffering. When the suffering soul reaches a calm sweet carelessness, when it can inwardly smile at its own suffering, and does not even ask God to deliver it from suffering, then it has wrought its blessed ministry; then patience has its perfect work; then the crucifixion begins to weave itself into a crown.
It is in this state of the perfection of suffering that the Holy Spirit works many marvelous things in our souls. In such a condition, our whole being lies perfectly still under the hand of God; every faculty of the mind and will and heart are at last subdued; a quietness of eternity settles down into the whole being; the tongue grows still, and has but few words to say; it stops asking God questions; it stops crying, “Why hast thou forsaken me ?”
The imagination stops building air castles, or running off on foolish lines; the reason is tame and gentle; the choices are annihilated; it has no choice in anything but the purpose of God. The affections are weaned from all creatures and all things; it is so dead that nothing can hurt it, nothing can offend it, nothing can hinder it, nothing can get in its way; for, let the circumstances be what they may, it seeks only for God and His will, and it feels assured that God is making everything in the universe, good or bad, past or present, work together for its good.
Oh, the blessedness of being absolutely conquered! of losing our own strength, and wisdom, and plans, and desires, and being where every atom of our nature is like placid Galilee under the omnipotent feet of our Jesus.
–Soul Food

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

That He truly wants you to be in Heaven with Him,

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

Since Adam & Eve sinned against GOD over 6,000 years ago

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

John 3:16 makes it very clear. These 25-words, that Jesus spoke to Nicodemus,

 

and to us:

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

If you believe that verse, on Faith, that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son,

 

Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago, to shed His Blood and Die

 

on that Cross at Calvary in payment for ALL of your sins AND for all of the

 

sins of the entire human race, was buried in a borrowed tomb, rose from

 

the dead on the 3rd Day we now call Easter, was seen by at least 500 people

 

after His Resurrection and ascended back into Heaven to sit on His Throne at GOD’s

 

Right-Hand-Side and you can lift up this Prayer to our

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

“Lord, I confess that I am a sinner. By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my

 

Personal Lord and Savior, I repent of my sins and give Christ total control of my life,

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

If you can say that Prayer, right now as you sit in front of your computer screen,

 

GOD will accept that Special Prayer, there will be Rejoicing in Heaven

 

and you will be Spiritually Born Again. Your name will be written in

 

the Lamb’s Book of Life as a Christian and you will, from that moment

 

until you die, and forever afterwards, have Eternal Life with GOD

 

the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit in Heaven.

 

Right now, you really have a choice, to accept Christ as your Personal Savior

 

or Reject Him.

 

If you reject Him and you die tonight or anytime in the future before

 

accepting Him, you will come under a very important verse in the

 

Last Book in the Holy Bible, the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

This will occur at the Great White Throne of Judgment described in:

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

Friend: Again I say: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you and WANT you to be in Heaven

 

with them but you MUST Cure yourself of the Disease of sin, and Jesus is the ONLY WAY.

 

All I can do is tell you. You must open your heart to the Holy Spirit and, by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior. You have been told: The decision is yours: Accept Him or Reject Him.

 

Lord, I lift up the person reading this statement that You have placed upon my heart to write.

 

PLEASE open this Precious Person’s Heart, whom I know that You Love, to Your Holy Spirit

 

so they will, by Faith, accept your Precious Son, Jesus, as their Personal Savior,

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

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.

His Great Commission, as He ascended back into Heaven while on the road to Bethany was:

The Great Commission!

====================================================
QUESTION!
Do you want to live as long as GOD lives (Eternity – NO END!)
You can!
Just Believe that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son to this earth
to shed His Blood and Die on the Cross at Calvary for your sins
and for the sins of the entire human race;
Was buried in a borrowed tomb, arose from the dead on the 3rd Day
(Easter), Was seen by over 500 people after His Resurrection and
ascended back into Heaven to sit at the Right-Hand of
His Father,  God, as our
High Priest, Advocate, Lord and Savior;
If you truly believe that to be true, and believe me and the Holy Bible:
IT IS TRUE! And you can say this Prayer to God, the Father:
“Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You, I Repent of my sins and
by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and give Him
total control of my Life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Saying that Prayer, you have been Born Again, Spiritually, and have
your ticket to Heaven to be with The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and
all other Christians for Eternity! There is Rejoicing in Heaven over your
Decision!
Welcome!

How can I be truly “free”?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
John 8:36
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Living a pure life means surrendering to Jesus Christ. But some people don’t want to surrender because they say they “want to be free.” What if a train said, “I don’t want to run on these tracks, I want to be free”? Then off through the meadow it would go.
What if a kite said, “I want to be free. I don’t want to be tied to a string”? The string breaks, and down it goes. What if a tree said, “I don’t want to be planted in the earth. I want to be free”? Jerked up from the earth, it dies.
Paul made this point as he appealed to some Greek citizens of Athens who prided themselves as being philosophers and thinkers. Standing at Mars Hill, Paul presented the way to God—totally new to them—through the Lord Jesus Christ, proclaiming,
“That they should seek the Lord…and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us. For in Him we live, and move, and have our being…” Acts 17:27-28
ACTION POINT:
Everything that is truly free functions best when it functions as God made it. God made you to know Him and to love Him. Far from “being free” from Him, Jesus Christ is the source of our spiritual life. He is our very life.
==============================================
The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”

Fear Has Its Place
“Happy is the man that feareth alway”   (Proverbs 28:14).

The fear of the LORD is the beginning and the foundation of all true religion. Without a solemn awe and reverence of God there is no foothold for the more brilliant virtues. He whose soul does not worship will never live in holiness. He is happy who feels a jealous fear of doing wrong. Holy fear looks not only before it leaps, but even before it moves. It is afraid of error, afraid of neglecting duty, afraid of committing sin. It fears ill company, loose talk, and questionable policy, This does not make a man wretched, but it brings him happiness. The watchful sentinel is happier than the soldier who sleeps at his post. He who foreseeth evil and escapes it is happier than he who walks carelessly on and is destroyed. Fear of God is a quiet grace which leads a man along a choice road, of which it is written, “No lion shall be there, neither shall any ravenous beast go up thereon.” Fear of the very appearance of evil is a purifying principle, which enables a man, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to keep his garments unspotted from the world. Solomon had tried both worldliness and holy fear: in the one he found vanity, in the other happiness. Let us not repeat his trial but abide by his verdict.

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

September 10
“Not much earth” (Matt. 13:5).
Shallow! It would seem from the teaching of this parable that we have something to do with the soil. The fruitful seed fell into “good and honest hearts.” I suppose the shallow people are the soil without much earth–those who have no real purpose, are moved by a tender appeal, a good sermon, a pathetic melody, and at first it looks as if they would amount to something; but not much earth–no depth, no deep, honest purpose, no earnest desire to know duty in order to do it. Let us look after the soil of our hearts.
When a Roman soldier was told by his guide that if he insisted on taking a certain journey it would probably be fatal, he answered, “It is necessary for me to go; it is not necessary for me to live.”
This was depth. When we are convicted something like that we shall come to something. The shallow nature lives in its impulses, its impressions, its intuitions, its instincts, and very largely its surroundings. The profound character looks beyond all these, and moves steadily on, sailing past all storms and clouds into the clear sunshine which is always on the other side, and waiting for the afterwards which always brings the reversion of sorrow, seeming defeat and failure.
When God has deepened us, then He can give us His deeper truths, His profoundest secrets, and His mightier trusts. Lord, lead me into the depths of Thy life and save me from a shallow experience!
On to broader fields of holy vision;
On to loftier heights of faith and love;
Onward, upward, apprehending wholly,
All for which He calls thee from above.

–A. B. Simpson

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

That He truly wants you to be in Heaven with Him,

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

Since Adam & Eve sinned against GOD over 6,000 years ago

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

John 3:16 makes it very clear. These 25-words, that Jesus spoke to Nicodemus,

 

and to us:

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

If you believe that verse, on Faith, that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son,

 

Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago, to shed His Blood and Die

 

on that Cross at Calvary in payment for ALL of your sins AND for all of the

 

sins of the entire human race, was buried in a borrowed tomb, rose from

 

the dead on the 3rd Day we now call Easter, was seen by at least 500 people

 

after His Resurrection and ascended back into Heaven to sit on His Throne at GOD’s

 

Right-Hand-Side and you can lift up this Prayer to our

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

“Lord, I confess that I am a sinner. By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my

 

Personal Lord and Savior, I repent of my sins and give Christ total control of my life,

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

If you can say that Prayer, right now as you sit in front of your computer screen,

 

GOD will accept that Special Prayer, there will be Rejoicing in Heaven

 

and you will be Spiritually Born Again. Your name will be written in

 

the Lamb’s Book of Life as a Christian and you will, from that moment

 

until you die, and forever afterwards, have Eternal Life with GOD

 

the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit in Heaven.

 

Right now, you really have a choice, to accept Christ as your Personal Savior

 

or Reject Him.

 

If you reject Him and you die tonight or anytime in the future before

 

accepting Him, you will come under a very important verse in the

 

Last Book in the Holy Bible, the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

This will occur at the Great White Throne of Judgment described in:

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

Friend: Again I say: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you and WANT you to be in Heaven

 

with them but you MUST Cure yourself of the Disease of sin, and Jesus is the ONLY WAY.

 

All I can do is tell you. You must open your heart to the Holy Spirit and, by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior. You have been told: The decision is yours: Accept Him or Reject Him.

 

Lord, I lift up the person reading this statement that You have placed upon my heart to write.

 

PLEASE open this Precious Person’s Heart, whom I know that You Love, to Your Holy Spirit

 

so they will, by Faith, accept your Precious Son, Jesus, as their Personal Savior,

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

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.

His Great Commission, as He ascended back into Heaven while on the road to Bethany was:

The Great Commission!

====================================================
QUESTION!
Do you want to live as long as GOD lives (Eternity – NO END!)
You can!
Just Believe that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son to this earth
to shed His Blood and Die on the Cross at Calvary for your sins
and for the sins of the entire human race;
Was buried in a borrowed tomb, arose from the dead on the 3rd Day
(Easter), Was seen by over 500 people after His Resurrection and
ascended back into Heaven to sit at the Right-Hand of
His Father,  God, as our
High Priest, Advocate, Lord and Savior;
If you truly believe that to be true, and believe me and the Holy Bible:
IT IS TRUE! And you can say this Prayer to God, the Father:
“Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You, I Repent of my sins and
by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and give Him
total control of my Life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Saying that Prayer, you have been Born Again, Spiritually, and have
your ticket to Heaven to be with The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and
all other Christians for Eternity! There is Rejoicing in Heaven over your
Decision!
Welcome!

“Loving God with All Your Mind”
BIBLE MEDITATION:
“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. . .”
Mark 12:30
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Jesus said of Satan, “He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44).
Satan is a clever liar. In fact, many of his lies sound like the truth. He plays with our minds to confuse us. He lies about the biggest subject of all – God. Satan wants to deceive you about God. If he can distort your idea of God, then beyond the shadow of any doubt, he has you in everything else.
ACTION POINT:
Answer this question: What does it mean to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind?
==============================================
The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”

Broken and Smoking!


“A bruised reed shall He not break, and the smoking flax shall He not quench”  

(Isaiah 42:3).

Then I may reckon upon tender treatment from my LORD. Indeed, I feel myself to be at best as weak, as pliant, as worthless as a reed. Someone said, “I don’t care a rush for you”; and the speech, though unkind, was not untrue. Alas! I am worse than a reed when it grows by the river, for that at least can hold up its head. I am bruised — sorely, sadly bruised. There is no music in me now; there is a rift which lets out all the melody. Ah, me! Yet Jesus will not break me; and if He will not, then I mind little what others try to do. O sweet and compassionate LORD, I nestle down beneath Thy protection and forget my bruises! Truly I am also fit to be likened to “the smoking flax,” whose light is gone, and only its smoke remains. I fear I am rather a nuisance than a benefit. My fears tell me that the devil has blown out my light and left me an obnoxious smoke, and that my LORD will soon put an extinguisher upon one. Yet I perceive that though there were snuffers under the law, there were no extinguishers, and Jesus will not quench me; therefore, I am hopeful. LORD, kindle me anew and cause me to shine forth to Thy glory and to the extolling of Thy tenderness.
============================================================================


September 9
“Thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress” (Ps. 4:1).
This is one of the grandest testimonies ever given by man to the moral government of God. It is not a man’s thanksgiving that he has been set free from suffering. It is a thanksgiving that he has been set free through suffering: “Thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress.” He declares the sorrows of life to have been themselves the source of life’s enlargement.
And have not you and I a thousand times felt this to be true? It is written of Joseph in the dungeon that “the iron entered into his soul.” We all feel that what Joseph needed for his soul was just the iron. He had seen only the glitter of the gold. He had been rejoicing in youthful dreams; and dreaming hardens the heart. He who sheds tears over a romance will not be most apt to help reality; real sorrow will be too unpoetic for him. We need the iron to enlarge our nature. The gold is but a vision; the iron is an experience. The chain which unites me to humanity must be an iron chain. That touch of nature which makes the world akin is not joy, but sorrow; gold is partial, but iron is universal.
My soul, if thou wouldst be enlarged into human sympathy, thou must be narrowed into limits of human suffering. Joseph’s dungeon is the road to Joseph’s throne. Thou canst not lift the iron load of thy brother if the iron hath not entered into thee. It is thy limit that is thine enlargement. It is the shadows of thy life that are the real fulfillment of thy dreams of glory. Murmur not at the shadows; they are better revelations than thy dreams. Say not that the shades of the prison-house have fettered thee; thy fetters are wings — wings of flight into the bosom of humanity. The door of thy prison-house is a door into the heart of the universe. God has enlarged thee by the binding of sorrow’s chain.
–George Matheson
If Joseph had not been Egypt’s prisoner, he had never been Egypt’s governor. The iron chain about his feet ushered in the golden chain about his neck.
–Selected

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

That He truly wants you to be in Heaven with Him,

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

Since Adam & Eve sinned against GOD over 6,000 years ago

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

John 3:16 makes it very clear. These 25-words, that Jesus spoke to Nicodemus,

 

and to us:

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

If you believe that verse, on Faith, that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son,

 

Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago, to shed His Blood and Die

 

on that Cross at Calvary in payment for ALL of your sins AND for all of the

 

sins of the entire human race, was buried in a borrowed tomb, rose from

 

the dead on the 3rd Day we now call Easter, was seen by at least 500 people

 

after His Resurrection and ascended back into Heaven to sit on His Throne at GOD’s

 

Right-Hand-Side and you can lift up this Prayer to our

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

“Lord, I confess that I am a sinner. By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my

 

Personal Lord and Savior, I repent of my sins and give Christ total control of my life,

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

If you can say that Prayer, right now as you sit in front of your computer screen,

 

GOD will accept that Special Prayer, there will be Rejoicing in Heaven

 

and you will be Spiritually Born Again. Your name will be written in

 

the Lamb’s Book of Life as a Christian and you will, from that moment

 

until you die, and forever afterwards, have Eternal Life with GOD

 

the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit in Heaven.

 

Right now, you really have a choice, to accept Christ as your Personal Savior

 

or Reject Him.

 

If you reject Him and you die tonight or anytime in the future before

 

accepting Him, you will come under a very important verse in the

 

Last Book in the Holy Bible, the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

This will occur at the Great White Throne of Judgment described in:

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

Friend: Again I say: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you and WANT you to be in Heaven

 

with them but you MUST Cure yourself of the Disease of sin, and Jesus is the ONLY WAY.

 

All I can do is tell you. You must open your heart to the Holy Spirit and, by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior. You have been told: The decision is yours: Accept Him or Reject Him.

 

Lord, I lift up the person reading this statement that You have placed upon my heart to write.

 

PLEASE open this Precious Person’s Heart, whom I know that You Love, to Your Holy Spirit

 

so they will, by Faith, accept your Precious Son, Jesus, as their Personal Savior,

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

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.

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.

His Great Commission, as He ascended back into Heaven while on the road to Bethany was:

The Great Commission!

====================================================
QUESTION!
Do you want to live as long as GOD lives (Eternity – NO END!)
You can!
Just Believe that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son to this earth
to shed His Blood and Die on the Cross at Calvary for your sins
and for the sins of the entire human race;
Was buried in a borrowed tomb, arose from the dead on the 3rd Day
(Easter), Was seen by over 500 people after His Resurrection and
ascended back into Heaven to sit at the Right-Hand of
His Father,  God, as our
High Priest, Advocate, Lord and Savior;
If you truly believe that to be true, and believe me and the Holy Bible:
IT IS TRUE! And you can say this Prayer to God, the Father:
“Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You, I Repent of my sins and
by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and give Him
total control of my Life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Saying that Prayer, you have been Born Again, Spiritually, and have
your ticket to Heaven to be with The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and
all other Christians for Eternity! There is Rejoicing in Heaven over your
Decision!
Welcome!

Are You Willing to Be Part of the Solution?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.
1 Peter 2:12
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
I hear Christians often complain about the immorality of movies and television, but who is doing something about it? Are you? Are you a part of the solution?
Do you have on your prayer list the names of any producers, directors, writers, actors, or journalists you heard about whose pieces are destructive and mock God’s principles? Are you witnessing to these people? Are you loving them to Christ? Do you send letters of support when good programming is produced? Do you let advertisers who promote immoral programming know that you disagree with their choices?
ACTION POINT:
We are to be salt and light. Matthew 5:16 says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
==============================================
The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”

The Reach of Almighty Grace!“It shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not My people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God”   
(Hosea 1:10).
Sovereign grace can make strangers into sons, and the LORD here declares His purpose to deal thus with rebels and make them know what He has done. Beloved reader, the LORD has done this in my case; has He done the like for you? Then let us join hands and hearts in praising His adorable name. Some of us were so decidedly ungodly that the LORD’s Word most truly said to our conscience and heart, “Ye are not my people.” In the house of God and in our own homes, when we read the Bible, this was the voice of God’s Spirit in our soul, “Ye are not my people.” Truly a sad, condemning voice it was. But now, in the same places, from the same ministry and Scripture, we hear a voice, which saith, “Ye are the sons of the living God.” Can we be grateful enough for this? Is it not wonderful? Does it not give us hope for others? Who is beyond the reach of almighty grace? How can we despair of any, since the LORD has wrought so marvelous a change in us?He who has kept this one great promise will keep every other; wherefore, let us go forward with songs of adoration and confidence.

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


September 8
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1).
The question often comes, “Why didn’t He help me sooner?” It is not His order. He must first adjust you to the trouble and cause you to learn your lesson from it. His promise is, “I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.” He must be with you in the trouble first all day and all night. Then He will take you out of it. This will not come till you have stopped being restless and fretful about it and become calm and quiet. Then He will say, “It is enough.”
God uses trouble to teach His children precious lessons. They are intended to educate us. When their good work is done, a glorious recompense will come to us through them. There is a sweet joy and a real value in them. He does not regard them as difficulties but as opportunities.
–Selected.
Not always OUT of our troublous times,
And the struggles fierce and grim,
But IN–deeper IN–to our one sure rest,
The place of our peace, in Him.

–Annie Johnson Flint
We once heard a simple old colored man say something that we have never forgotten: “When God tests you, it is a good time for you to test Him by putting His promises to the proof, and claiming from Him just as much as your trials have rendered necessary.”
There are two ways of getting out of a trial. One is to simply try to get rid of the trial, and be thankful when it is over. The other is to recognize the trial as a challenge from God to claim a larger blessing than we have ever had, and to hail it with delight as an opportunity of obtaining a larger measure of Divine grace. Thus even the adversary becomes an auxiliary, and the things that seem to be against us turn out to be for the furtherance of our way. Surely, this is to be more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
–A. B. Simpson

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

That He truly wants you to be in Heaven with Him,

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

Since Adam & Eve sinned against GOD over 6,000 years ago

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

John 3:16 makes it very clear. These 25-words, that Jesus spoke to Nicodemus,

 

and to us:

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

If you believe that verse, on Faith, that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son,

 

Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago, to shed His Blood and Die

 

on that Cross at Calvary in payment for ALL of your sins AND for all of the

 

sins of the entire human race, was buried in a borrowed tomb, rose from

 

the dead on the 3rd Day we now call Easter, was seen by at least 500 people

 

after His Resurrection and ascended back into Heaven to sit on His Throne at GOD’s

 

Right-Hand-Side and you can lift up this Prayer to our

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

“Lord, I confess that I am a sinner. By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my

 

Personal Lord and Savior, I repent of my sins and give Christ total control of my life,

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

If you can say that Prayer, right now as you sit in front of your computer screen,

 

GOD will accept that Special Prayer, there will be Rejoicing in Heaven

 

and you will be Spiritually Born Again. Your name will be written in

 

the Lamb’s Book of Life as a Christian and you will, from that moment

 

until you die, and forever afterwards, have Eternal Life with GOD

 

the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit in Heaven.

 

Right now, you really have a choice, to accept Christ as your Personal Savior

 

or Reject Him.

 

If you reject Him and you die tonight or anytime in the future before

 

accepting Him, you will come under a very important verse in the

 

Last Book in the Holy Bible, the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

This will occur at the Great White Throne of Judgment described in:

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

Friend: Again I say: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you and WANT you to be in Heaven

 

with them but you MUST Cure yourself of the Disease of sin, and Jesus is the ONLY WAY.

 

All I can do is tell you. You must open your heart to the Holy Spirit and, by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior. You have been told: The decision is yours: Accept Him or Reject Him.

 

Lord, I lift up the person reading this statement that You have placed upon my heart to write.

 

PLEASE open this Precious Person’s Heart, whom I know that You Love, to Your Holy Spirit

 

so they will, by Faith, accept your Precious Son, Jesus, as their Personal Savior,

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

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.

His Great Commission, as He ascended back into Heaven while on the road to Bethany was:

The Great Commission!

====================================================
QUESTION!
Do you want to live as long as GOD lives (Eternity – NO END!)
You can!
Just Believe that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son to this earth
to shed His Blood and Die on the Cross at Calvary for your sins
and for the sins of the entire human race;
Was buried in a borrowed tomb, arose from the dead on the 3rd Day
(Easter), Was seen by over 500 people after His Resurrection and
ascended back into Heaven to sit at the Right-Hand of
His Father,  God, as our
High Priest, Advocate, Lord and Savior;
If you truly believe that to be true, and believe me and the Holy Bible:
IT IS TRUE! And you can say this Prayer to God, the Father:
“Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You, I Repent of my sins and
by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and give Him
total control of my Life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Saying that Prayer, you have been Born Again, Spiritually, and have
your ticket to Heaven to be with The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and
all other Christians for Eternity! There is Rejoicing in Heaven over your
Decision!

What can bring peace and harmony?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
Nevertheless, I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent…
Revelation 2:4-5
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
The 1960s ushered in the sexual revolution. Now tell me one more time how “free love” was supposed to bring peace and harmony to our world?
People are being sucked into swirling sewers of sin. Homes are coming apart at the seams. Precious little unborn babies are being put to death. Sexually transmitted diseases are rampant.
The time is half past late, and we must return to our “first love.” Our first love is the Lord, our Creator. It is the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s time to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, and with all our souls, and with all our minds; and love our neighbors as we love ourselves (see Matthew 22:36-39).
ACTION POINT:
It’s time to introduce people to the “free love” offered by our Savior when He died to forgive us our sins and purchase our salvation for eternity.
==============================================
The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”

September 7
Thou remainest
(Heb. 1:11).
There are always lone hearth-fires; so many! And those who sit beside them, with the empty chair, cannot restrain the tears that will come. One sits alone so much. There is some One unseen, just here within reach. But somehow we don’t realize His presence. Realizing is blessed, but–rare. It belongs to the mood, to the feelings. It is dependent on weather conditions and bodily conditions. The rain, the heavy fog outside, the poor sleep, the twinging pain, these make one’s mood so much, they seem to blur out the realizing.
But there is something a little higher up than realizing. It is yet more blessed. It is independent of these outer conditions, it is something that abides. It is this: recognizing that Presence unseen, so wondrous and quieting, so soothing and calming and warming. Recognize His presence–the Master’s own. He is here, close by; His presence is real. Recognizing will help realizing, too, but it never depends on it.
Aye, more, immensely more, the Truth is a Presence, not a thing, a fact, a statement. Some One is present, a warm-hearted Friend, an all-powerful Lord. And this is the joyful truth for weeping hearts everywhere, whatever be the hand that has drawn the tears; by whatever stream it be that your weeping willow is planted.
–S. D. Gordon
When from my life the old-time joys have vanished,
Treasures once mine, I may no longer claim,
This truth may feed my hungry heart, and famished:
Lord, THOU REMAINEST THOU art still the same!
When streams have dried, those streams of glad refreshing–
Friendships so blest, so rich, so free;
When sun-kissed skies give place to clouds depressing,
Lord, THOU REMAINEST! Still my heart hath THEE.
When strength hath failed, and feet, now worn and weary,
On gladsome errands may no longer go,
Why should I sigh, or let the days be dreary?
Lord, THOU REMAINEST! Could’st Thou more bestow?
Thus through life’s days–whoe’er or what may fail me,
Friends, friendships, joys, in small or great degree,
Songs may be mine, no sadness need assail me,
Lord, THOU REMAINEST! Still my heart hath THEE.

–J. D. Smith

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

That He truly wants you to be in Heaven with Him,

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

Since Adam & Eve sinned against GOD over 6,000 years ago

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

John 3:16 makes it very clear. These 25-words, that Jesus spoke to Nicodemus,

 

and to us:

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

If you believe that verse, on Faith, that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son,

 

Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago, to shed His Blood and Die

 

on that Cross at Calvary in payment for ALL of your sins AND for all of the

 

sins of the entire human race, was buried in a borrowed tomb, rose from

 

the dead on the 3rd Day we now call Easter, was seen by at least 500 people

 

after His Resurrection and ascended back into Heaven to sit on His Throne at GOD’s

 

Right-Hand-Side and you can lift up this Prayer to our

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

“Lord, I confess that I am a sinner. By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my

 

Personal Lord and Savior, I repent of my sins and give Christ total control of my life,

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

If you can say that Prayer, right now as you sit in front of your computer screen,

 

GOD will accept that Special Prayer, there will be Rejoicing in Heaven

 

and you will be Spiritually Born Again. Your name will be written in

 

the Lamb’s Book of Life as a Christian and you will, from that moment

 

until you die, and forever afterwards, have Eternal Life with GOD

 

the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit in Heaven.

 

Right now, you really have a choice, to accept Christ as your Personal Savior

 

or Reject Him.

 

If you reject Him and you die tonight or anytime in the future before

 

accepting Him, you will come under a very important verse in the

 

Last Book in the Holy Bible, the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

This will occur at the Great White Throne of Judgment described in:

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

Friend: Again I say: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you and WANT you to be in Heaven

 

with them but you MUST Cure yourself of the Disease of sin, and Jesus is the ONLY WAY.

 

All I can do is tell you. You must open your heart to the Holy Spirit and, by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior. You have been told: The decision is yours: Accept Him or Reject Him.

 

Lord, I lift up the person reading this statement that You have placed upon my heart to write.

 

PLEASE open this Precious Person’s Heart, whom I know that You Love, to Your Holy Spirit

 

so they will, by Faith, accept your Precious Son, Jesus, as their Personal Savior,

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

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 does it mean to have a clear conscience? It means that, as far as you know, there’s nothing wrong between you and God, and there is nothing wrong between you and anybody else.
Do you cringe when you see a police car approaching you? Do you jump every time the doorbell rings? In Psalm 51:3, David knew the hounding of a bad conscience when he said, “My sin is ever before me.” Trust me, no torture the poets have named can match that fierce, unutterable pain of a bad conscience. You know you’ve sinned and yet you’ve done nothing about it.
The trials of life are easier to face when you have a clear conscience. Then when something bad happens, you know it’s not because you’ve done anything wrong.
ACTION POINT:
Is there something nagging at you—something you know you need to confess to your Heavenly Father? What about something between you and someone else? There is no better day than today to make it right.

With Me Wherever I Am
“The LORD will be with you” (2 Chronicles 20:17).
This was a great mercy for Jehoshaphat, for a great multitude had come out against him; and it will be a great mercy for me, for I have great need, and I have no might or wisdom. If the LORD be with me, it matters little who may desert me. If the LORD be with me, I shall conquer in the battle of life, and the greater my trials the more glorious will be my victory. How can I be sure that the LORD is with me? For certain He is with me if I am with Him. If I trust in His faithfulness, believe His words, and obey His commands, He is assuredly with me. If I am on Satan’s side, God is against me and cannot be otherwise; but if I live to honor God, I may be sure that He will honor me. I am quite sure that God is with me if Jesus is my sole and only Savior. If I have placed my soul in the hands of God’s only-begotten Son, then I may be sure that the Father will put forth all His power to preserve me, that His Son may not be dishonored. Oh, for faith to take hold upon the short but sweet text for today! O LORD, fulfill this word to Thy servant! Be with me in the house, in the street, in the field, in the shop, in company, and alone. Be Thou also with all Thy people.

Blessed are all they that wait for him (Isa. 30:18).
We hear a great deal about waiting on God. There is, however, another side. When we wait on God, He is waiting till we are ready; when we wait for God, we are waiting till He is ready.
There are some people who say, and many more who believe, that as soon as we meet all the conditions, God will answer our prayers. They say that God lives in an eternal now; with Him there is no past nor future; and that if we could fulfill all that He requires in the way of obedience to His will, immediately our needs would be supplied, our desires fulfilled, our prayers answered.
There is much truth in this belief, and yet it expresses only one side of the truth. While God lives in an eternal now, yet He works out His purposes in time. A petition presented before God is like a seed dropped in the ground. Forces above and beyond our control must work upon it, till the true fruition of the answer is given.
–The Still Small Voice
I longed to walk along an easy road,
And leave behind the dull routine of home,
Thinking in other fields to serve my God;
But Jesus said, “My time has not yet come.”
I longed to sow the seed in other soil,
To be unfettered in the work, and free,
To join with other laborers in their toil;
But Jesus said, “‘Tis not My choice for thee.”
I longed to leave the desert, and be led
To work where souls were sunk in sin and shame,
That I might win them; but the Master said,
“I have not called thee, publish here My name.”
I longed to fight the battles of my King,
Lift high His standards in the thickest strife;
But my great Captain bade me wait and sing
Songs of His conquests in my quiet life.
I longed to leave the uncongenial sphere,
Where all alone I seemed to stand and wait,
To feel I had some human helper near,
But Jesus bade me guard one lonely gate.
I longed to leave the round of daily toil,
Where no one seemed to understand or care;
But Jesus said, “I choose for thee this soil,
That thou might’st raise for Me some blossoms rare.”
And now I have no longing but to do
At home, or else afar, His blessed will,
To work amid the many or the few;

Thus, “choosing not to choose,” my heart is still.
–Selected
And Patience was willing to wait.
–Pilgrim’s Progress

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

That He truly wants you to be in Heaven with Him,

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

Since Adam & Eve sinned against GOD over 6,000 years ago

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

John 3:16 makes it very clear. These 25-words, that Jesus spoke to Nicodemus,

 

and to us:

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

If you believe that verse, on Faith, that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son,

 

Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago, to shed His Blood and Die

 

on that Cross at Calvary in payment for ALL of your sins AND for all of the

 

sins of the entire human race, was buried in a borrowed tomb, rose from

 

the dead on the 3rd Day we now call Easter, was seen by at least 500 people

 

after His Resurrection and ascended back into Heaven to sit on His Throne at GOD’s

 

Right-Hand-Side and you can lift up this Prayer to our

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

“Lord, I confess that I am a sinner. By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my

 

Personal Lord and Savior, I repent of my sins and give Christ total control of my life,

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

If you can say that Prayer, right now as you sit in front of your computer screen,

 

GOD will accept that Special Prayer, there will be Rejoicing in Heaven

 

and you will be Spiritually Born Again. Your name will be written in

 

the Lamb’s Book of Life as a Christian and you will, from that moment

 

until you die, and forever afterwards, have Eternal Life with GOD

 

the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit in Heaven.

 

Right now, you really have a choice, to accept Christ as your Personal Savior

 

or Reject Him.

 

If you reject Him and you die tonight or anytime in the future before

 

accepting Him, you will come under a very important verse in the

 

Last Book in the Holy Bible, the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

This will occur at the Great White Throne of Judgment described in:

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

Friend: Again I say: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you and WANT you to be in Heaven

 

with them but you MUST Cure yourself of the Disease of sin, and Jesus is the ONLY WAY.

 

All I can do is tell you. You must open your heart to the Holy Spirit and, by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior. You have been told: The decision is yours: Accept Him or Reject Him.

 

Lord, I lift up the person reading this statement that You have placed upon my heart to write.

 

PLEASE open this Precious Person’s Heart, whom I know that You Love, to Your Holy Spirit

 

so they will, by Faith, accept your Precious Son, Jesus, as their Personal Savior,

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

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.

His Great Commission, as He ascended back into Heaven while on the road to Bethany was:

The Great Commission!

====================================================
QUESTION!
Do you want to live as long as GOD lives (Eternity – NO END!)
You can!
Just Believe that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son to this earth
to shed His Blood and Die on the Cross at Calvary for your sins
and for the sins of the entire human race;
Was buried in a borrowed tomb, arose from the dead on the 3rd Day
(Easter), Was seen by over 500 people after His Resurrection and
ascended back into Heaven to sit at the Right-Hand of
His Father,  God, as our
High Priest, Advocate, Lord and Savior;
If you truly believe that to be true, and believe me and the Holy Bible:
IT IS TRUE! And you can say this Prayer to God, the Father:
“Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You, I Repent of my sins and
by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and give Him
total control of my Life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Saying that Prayer, you have been Born Again, Spiritually, and have
your ticket to Heaven to be with The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and
all other Christians for Eternity! There is Rejoicing in Heaven over your
Decision!
Welcome!

Do I really need to pray?
BIBLE MEDITATION:
But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for Himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto Him.
Psalm 4:3
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
If ever there was a reason to pray, it would be that Jesus has told us to (see Luke 18:1). Yet since Matthew 6:8 says, “Your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him,” you may wonder, “Why do I need to talk to God about my needs?”
Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance; it’s laying hold of His willingness. It’s part of God’s grand scheme that He has given us the privilege to cooperate with Him in prayer.
ACTION POINT:
Ephesians 6:18 tells us to pray “in the Spirit.” Any prayer that the Holy Spirit lays upon your heart will be answered, because the prayer that gets to heaven is the prayer that starts in heaven. We just close the circuit.
==============================================
The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”

Victory Without Battle
“But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the LORD their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen”   (Hosea 1:7).
Precious Word. Jehovah Himself will deliver His people in the greatness of His mercy, but He will not do it by the ordinary means, Men are slow to render to God the glory due unto His name. If they go to battle with sword and bow and win the victory, they ought to praise their God; yet they do not, but begin to magnify their own right arm and glory in their horses and horsemen. For this reason our Jehovah often determines to save His people without second means, that all the honor may be to Himself alone. Look, then, my heart, to the LORD alone and not to man. Expect to see God all the more clearly when there is no one else to look to. If I have no friend, no adviser, no one at my back, let me be none the less confident if I can feel that the LORD Himself is on my side; yea, let me be glad if He gives victory without battle, as the text seems to imply. Why do I ask for horses and horsemen if Jehovah Himself has mercy upon me and lifts up His arm for my defense! Why need I bow or sword if God will save? Let me trust and not be afraid from this day forth and for evermore. Amen.

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


September 5
And when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him(Joshua 6:5).
The shout of steadfast faith is in direct contrast to the moans of wavering faith, and to the wails of discouraged hearts. Among the many “secrets of the Lord,” I do not know of any that is more valuable than the secret of this shout of faith. The Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.” He had not said, “I will give,” but “I have given.” It belonged to them already; and now they were called to take possession of it. But the great question was, How? It looked impossible, but the Lord declared His plan.
Now, no one can suppose for a moment that this shout caused the walls to fall. And yet the secret of their victory lay in just this shout, for it was the shout of a faith which dared, on the authority of God’s Word alone, to claim a promised victory, while as yet there were no signs of this victory being accomplished. And according to their faith God did unto them; so that, when they shouted, He made the walls to fall.
God had declared that He had given them the city, and faith reckoned this to be true. And long centuries afterwards the Holy Ghost recorded this triumph of faith in Hebrews: “By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.”
–Hannah Whitall Smith
Faith can never reach its consummation,
Till the victor’s thankful song we raise:
In the glorious city of salvation,
God has told us all the gates are praise.

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

That He truly wants you to be in Heaven with Him,

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

Since Adam & Eve sinned against GOD over 6,000 years ago

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

John 3:16 makes it very clear. These 25-words, that Jesus spoke to Nicodemus,

 

and to us:

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

If you believe that verse, on Faith, that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son,

 

Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago, to shed His Blood and Die

 

on that Cross at Calvary in payment for ALL of your sins AND for all of the

 

sins of the entire human race, was buried in a borrowed tomb, rose from

 

the dead on the 3rd Day we now call Easter, was seen by at least 500 people

 

after His Resurrection and ascended back into Heaven to sit on His Throne at GOD’s

 

Right-Hand-Side and you can lift up this Prayer to our

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

“Lord, I confess that I am a sinner. By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my

 

Personal Lord and Savior, I repent of my sins and give Christ total control of my life,

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

If you can say that Prayer, right now as you sit in front of your computer screen,

 

GOD will accept that Special Prayer, there will be Rejoicing in Heaven

 

and you will be Spiritually Born Again. Your name will be written in

 

the Lamb’s Book of Life as a Christian and you will, from that moment

 

until you die, and forever afterwards, have Eternal Life with GOD

 

the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit in Heaven.

 

Right now, you really have a choice, to accept Christ as your Personal Savior

 

or Reject Him.

 

If you reject Him and you die tonight or anytime in the future before

 

accepting Him, you will come under a very important verse in the

 

Last Book in the Holy Bible, the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

This will occur at the Great White Throne of Judgment described in:

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

Friend: Again I say: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you and WANT you to be in Heaven

 

with them but you MUST Cure yourself of the Disease of sin, and Jesus is the ONLY WAY.

 

All I can do is tell you. You must open your heart to the Holy Spirit and, by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior. You have been told: The decision is yours: Accept Him or Reject Him.

 

Lord, I lift up the person reading this statement that You have placed upon my heart to write.

 

PLEASE open this Precious Person’s Heart, whom I know that You Love, to Your Holy Spirit

 

so they will, by Faith, accept your Precious Son, Jesus, as their Personal Savior,

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

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.

His Great Commission, as He ascended back into Heaven while on the road to Bethany was:

The Great Commission!

====================================================
QUESTION!
Do you want to live as long as GOD lives (Eternity – NO END!)
You can!
Just Believe that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son to this earth
to shed His Blood and Die on the Cross at Calvary for your sins
and for the sins of the entire human race;
Was buried in a borrowed tomb, arose from the dead on the 3rd Day
(Easter), Was seen by over 500 people after His Resurrection and
ascended back into Heaven to sit at the Right-Hand of
His Father,  God, as our
High Priest, Advocate, Lord and Savior;
If you truly believe that to be true, and believe me and the Holy Bible:
IT IS TRUE! And you can say this Prayer to God, the Father:
“Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You, I Repent of my sins and
by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and give Him
total control of my Life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Saying that Prayer, you have been Born Again, Spiritually, and have
your ticket to Heaven to be with The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and
all other Christians for Eternity! There is Rejoicing in Heaven over your
Decision!
Welcome!

Are you the gnat or the bee?
BIBLE MEDITATION:
For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass. For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”
James 1:23-25
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
This guy is a man in a hurry (v. 23-24). He has a lot on his mind. He takes a quick glimpse in a mirror, then rushes on. If the Bible is like a mirror, then he’s getting just a glimpse in the Word but not really applying it to his life.
Most Christians I know today are this kind of Bible student—a gnat bouncing here and there—rather than a bee, diving in and staying long enough to extract the sweetness.
In contrast, the man in verse 25 gazes steadily into the Word. He delights in God’s Word, applies God’s Word, and cherishes God’s Word.
Are you like that? Or do you take a passing glance at the Word and move on to the next thing on your “to do” list?
ACTION POINT:
Which sounds more like you…the passing glance or the careful gaze?
==============================================
The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”

Out of Spiritual Death
“And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up out of your graves”   (Ezekiel 37:13).
Indeed it must be so: those who receive life from the dead are sure to recognize the hand of the LORD in such a resurrection. This is the greatest and most remarkable of all changes that a man can undergo — to be brought out of the grave of spiritual death and made to rejoice in the light and liberty of spiritual life. None could work this but the living God, the LORD and giver of life. Ah, me! How well do I remember when I was lying in the valley full of dry bones, as dry as any of them! Blessed was the day when free and sovereign grace sent the man of God to prophesy upon me! Glory be to God for the stirring which that word of faith caused among the dry bones. More blessed still was that heavenly breath from the four winds which made me live! Now know I the quickening Spirit of the ever-living Jehovah, Truly Jehovah is the living God, for He made me live. My new life even in its pinings and sorrowings is clear proof to me that the LORD can kill and make alive. He is the only God. He is all that is great, gracious, and glorious, and my quickened soul adores Him as the great I AM. All glory be unto His sacred name! As long as I live I will praise Him.

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

And he saw them toiling in rowing (Mark 6:48).
Straining, driving effort does not accomplish the work God gives man to do. Only God Himself, who always works without strain, and who never overworks, can do the work that He assigns to His children. When they restfully trust Him to do it, it will be well done and completely done. The way to let Him do His work through us is to partake of Christ so fully, by faith, that He more than fills our life.
A man who had learned this secret once said: “I came to Jesus and I drank, and I do not think that I shall ever be thirsty again. I have taken for my motto, ‘Not overwork, but overflow’; and already it has made all the difference in my life.”
There is no effort in overflow. It is quietly irresistible. It is the normal life of omnipotent and ceaseless accomplishment into which Christ invites us today and always.
–Sunday School Times
Be all at rest, my soul, O blessed secret,
Of the true life that glorifies thy Lord:
Not always doth the busiest soul best serve Him,
But he that resteth on His faithful Word.
Be all at rest, let not your heart be rippled,
For tiny wavelets mar the image fair,
Which the still pool reflects of heaven’s glory–
And thus the image He would have thee bear.
Be all at rest, my soul, for rest is service,
To the still heart God doth His secrets tell;
Thus shalt thou learn to wait, and watch, and labor,
Strengthened to bear, since Christ in thee doth dwell.
For what is service but the life of Jesus,
Lived through a vessel of earth’s fragile clay,
Loving and giving and poured forth for others,
A living sacrifice from day to day.
Be all at rest, so shalt thou be an answer
To those who question, “Who is God and where?”
For God is rest, and where He dwells is stillness,
And they who dwell in Him, His rest shalt share.
And what shall meet the deep unrest around thee,
But the calm peace of God that filled His breast?
For still a living Voice calls to the weary,

From Him who said, “Come unto Me and rest.”
–Freda Hanbury Allen
“In resurrection stillness there is resurrection power.”

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

That He truly wants you to be in Heaven with Him,

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

Since Adam & Eve sinned against GOD over 6,000 years ago

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

John 3:16 makes it very clear. These 25-words, that Jesus spoke to Nicodemus,

 

and to us:

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

If you believe that verse, on Faith, that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son,

 

Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago, to shed His Blood and Die

 

on that Cross at Calvary in payment for ALL of your sins AND for all of the

 

sins of the entire human race, was buried in a borrowed tomb, rose from

 

the dead on the 3rd Day we now call Easter, was seen by at least 500 people

 

after His Resurrection and ascended back into Heaven to sit on His Throne at GOD’s

 

Right-Hand-Side and you can lift up this Prayer to our

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

“Lord, I confess that I am a sinner. By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my

 

Personal Lord and Savior, I repent of my sins and give Christ total control of my life,

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

If you can say that Prayer, right now as you sit in front of your computer screen,

 

GOD will accept that Special Prayer, there will be Rejoicing in Heaven

 

and you will be Spiritually Born Again. Your name will be written in

 

the Lamb’s Book of Life as a Christian and you will, from that moment

 

until you die, and forever afterwards, have Eternal Life with GOD

 

the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit in Heaven.

 

Right now, you really have a choice, to accept Christ as your Personal Savior

 

or Reject Him.

 

If you reject Him and you die tonight or anytime in the future before

 

accepting Him, you will come under a very important verse in the

 

Last Book in the Holy Bible, the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

This will occur at the Great White Throne of Judgment described in:

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

Friend: Again I say: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you and WANT you to be in Heaven

 

with them but you MUST Cure yourself of the Disease of sin, and Jesus is the ONLY WAY.

 

All I can do is tell you. You must open your heart to the Holy Spirit and, by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior. You have been told: The decision is yours: Accept Him or Reject Him.

 

Lord, I lift up the person reading this statement that You have placed upon my heart to write.

 

PLEASE open this Precious Person’s Heart, whom I know that You Love, to Your Holy Spirit

 

so they will, by Faith, accept your Precious Son, Jesus, as their Personal Savior,

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

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.

His Great Commission, as He ascended back into Heaven while on the road to Bethany was:

The Great Commission!

====================================================
QUESTION!
Do you want to live as long as GOD lives (Eternity – NO END!)
You can!
Just Believe that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son to this earth
to shed His Blood and Die on the Cross at Calvary for your sins
and for the sins of the entire human race;
Was buried in a borrowed tomb, arose from the dead on the 3rd Day
(Easter), Was seen by over 500 people after His Resurrection and
ascended back into Heaven to sit at the Right-Hand of
His Father,  God, as our
High Priest, Advocate, Lord and Savior;
If you truly believe that to be true, and believe me and the Holy Bible:
IT IS TRUE! And you can say this Prayer to God, the Father:
“Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You, I Repent of my sins and
by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and give Him
total control of my Life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Saying that Prayer, you have been Born Again, Spiritually, and have
your ticket to Heaven to be with The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and
all other Christians for Eternity! There is Rejoicing in Heaven over your
Decision!
Welcome!

You Are A Wanted Child!
BIBLE MEDITATION:
According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.
Ephesians 1:4
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
The Holy Trinity worked together for your salvation.
  • God the Father thought it
  • God the Spirit wrought it
  • God the Son bought it
Christians are God’s special chosen ones. Are you a believer? Then you are a wanted child. Your salvation didn’t “just happen.” You are “chosen…in the beloved.” Look at Ephesians 1:4-6
According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved.
The Word of God is telling you that God chose you before the foundation of the world. Before He swung the stars into space, before He planted the seeds, before He built the mountains, before all of that, you were in the heart and mind of God. How special you are to God!
ACTION POINT:
God the Father sent His Spirit into the world to select and sanctify His children for His holy purpose. We are utterly dependent upon the Spirit for our salvation. And we seek Him because He first sought us!
==============================================
The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”
==============================================

Follow to Know
“Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD”  
(Hosea 6:3).
Not all at once, but by degrees shall we attain to holy knowledge, and our business is to persevere and learn by little and little. We need not despair, though our progress may be slow, for we shall yet know. The LORD, who has become our Teacher, will not give us up, however slow of understanding we may be; for it is not for His honor that any degree of human folly should baffle His skill. The LORD delights to make the simple wise. Our duty is to keep to our main topic and follow on to know, not this peculiar doctrine nor that, but Jehovah Himself. To know Father, Son, and Spirit, the Triune God, this is life eternal. let us keep to this, for in this way we shall gain complete instruction. By following on to know the LORD, we learn healing after being torn, binding up after smiting, and life after death. Experience has its perfect work when the heart follows the trackway of the Almighty LORD. My soul, keep thou close to Jesus, follow on to know God in Jesus, and so shalt thou come to the knowledge of Christ, which is the most excellent of all the sciences. The Holy Ghost will lead thee into all truth. Is not this His gracious promise? Rely upon Him to fulfill it.

Unto you it is given… to suffer (Philippians 1:29).
God keeps a costly school. Many of its lessons are spelled out through tears. Richard Baxter said, “O God, I thank Thee for a bodily discipline of eight and fifty years”; and he is not the only man who has turned a trouble into triumph.
This school of our Heavenly Father will soon close for us; the term time is shortening every day. Let us not shrink from a hard lesson or wince under any rod of chastisement. The richer will be the crown, and the sweeter will be Heaven, if we endure cheerfully to the end and graduate in glory.
–Theodore L. Cuyler
The finest china in the world is burned at least three times, some of it more than three times. Dresden china is always burned three times. Why does it go through that intense fire? Once ought to be enough; twice ought to be enough. No, three times are necessary to burn that china so that the gold and the crimson are brought out more beautiful and then fastened there to stay.
We are fashioned after the same principle in human life. Our trials are burned into us once, twice, thrice; and by God’s grace these beautiful colors are there and they are there to stay forever.
–Cortland Myers
Earth’s fairest flowers grow not on sunny plain,
But where some vast upheaval rent in twain
The smiling land.
After the whirlwinds devastating blast,
After the molten fire and ashen pall,
God’s still small voice breathes healing over all.
From riven rocks and fern-clad chasms deep,
Flow living waters as from hearts that weep,
There in the afterglow soft dews distill
And angels tend God’s plants when night falls still,
And the Beloved passing by that way

Will gather lilies at the break of day.
–J.H.D.

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

That He truly wants you to be in Heaven with Him,

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

Since Adam & Eve sinned against GOD over 6,000 years ago

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

John 3:16 makes it very clear. These 25-words, that Jesus spoke to Nicodemus,

 

and to us:

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

If you believe that verse, on Faith, that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son,

 

Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago, to shed His Blood and Die

 

on that Cross at Calvary in payment for ALL of your sins AND for all of the

 

sins of the entire human race, was buried in a borrowed tomb, rose from

 

the dead on the 3rd Day we now call Easter, was seen by at least 500 people

 

after His Resurrection and ascended back into Heaven to sit on His Throne at GOD’s

 

Right-Hand-Side and you can lift up this Prayer to our

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

“Lord, I confess that I am a sinner. By Faith, I accept Jesus Christ as my

 

Personal Lord and Savior, I repent of my sins and give Christ total control of my life,

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

If you can say that Prayer, right now as you sit in front of your computer screen,

 

GOD will accept that Special Prayer, there will be Rejoicing in Heaven

 

and you will be Spiritually Born Again. Your name will be written in

 

the Lamb’s Book of Life as a Christian and you will, from that moment

 

until you die, and forever afterwards, have Eternal Life with GOD

 

the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit in Heaven.

 

Right now, you really have a choice, to accept Christ as your Personal Savior

 

or Reject Him.

 

If you reject Him and you die tonight or anytime in the future before

 

accepting Him, you will come under a very important verse in the

 

Last Book in the Holy Bible, the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

This will occur at the Great White Throne of Judgment described in:

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

Friend: Again I say: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you and WANT you to be in Heaven

 

with them but you MUST Cure yourself of the Disease of sin, and Jesus is the ONLY WAY.

 

All I can do is tell you. You must open your heart to the Holy Spirit and, by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior. You have been told: The decision is yours: Accept Him or Reject Him.

 

Lord, I lift up the person reading this statement that You have placed upon my heart to write.

 

PLEASE open this Precious Person’s Heart, whom I know that You Love, to Your Holy Spirit

 

so they will, by Faith, accept your Precious Son, Jesus, as their Personal Savior,

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

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.

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.

His Great Commission, as He ascended back into Heaven while on the road to Bethany was:

The Great Commission!

====================================================
QUESTION!
Do you want to live as long as GOD lives (Eternity – NO END!)
You can!
Just Believe that GOD sent His Only Begotten Son to this earth
to shed His Blood and Die on the Cross at Calvary for your sins
and for the sins of the entire human race;
Was buried in a borrowed tomb, arose from the dead on the 3rd Day
(Easter), Was seen by over 500 people after His Resurrection and
ascended back into Heaven to sit at the Right-Hand of
His Father,  God, as our
High Priest, Advocate, Lord and Savior;
If you truly believe that to be true, and believe me and the Holy Bible:
IT IS TRUE! And you can say this Prayer to God, the Father:
“Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You, I Repent of my sins and
by Faith, accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and give Him
total control of my Life, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Saying that Prayer, you have been Born Again, Spiritually, and have
your ticket to Heaven to be with The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and
all other Christians for Eternity! There is Rejoicing in Heaven over your
Decision!
Welcome!
