The Victory of Light!

Today’s Reading
Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.”
MATTHEW 2:13
And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
JOHN 1:5
The Victory of Light
Here is another truth about the light of Christmas that will bless you this Christmas season. It’s found in John 1:5, where the apostle writes, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” I want to talk with you today about the victory of the light. What does John mean when he says that the darkness could not understand or “comprehend” the light? This word has also been rendered “overcome,” “put out,” or “extinguish.” What John is talking about is the victory of light over darkness.
All of history is really a battle between light and darkness. We see it even at the birth of Jesus in the account of King Herod’s murderous rampage against the baby boys in Bethlehem. The darkness attempted to extinguish God’s light. But who must win this battle? As surely as day follows night, it is clear that darkness has no power against light! As the hymn says, “Jesus shall reign where’er the sun / Does his successive journeys run.”
If you’re in a dark room and you want to dispel the darkness, would you take the vacuum cleaner and vacuum the darkness out? Would you take a shovel and shovel it out? Of course not. All you have to do to conquer the darkness is turn on the light. When you do that, the darkness flees. It cannot stay. It is totally powerless against the light.
The energy produced by our sun is beyond what we can imagine. On the brightest moonlit night, the light of the moon is only one-eight hundred thousandth as bright as the sunshine on an ordinary day. If you look directly into the sun, you will burn your eyes. Yet, for all of its incredible power, the sun is at best only a faint illustration of the Son of God in His brightness. No one can overcome or extinguish the Lord’s light! In Him there is victory, at Christmas and every other season of the year. Let’s release the light of the Lord Jesus Christ into the world this Christmas. Let’s bear witness to the Light!

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.”

Trust and Do; Do and Trust!
“Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed”  
(Psalm 37:3).
Trust and do are words which go well together, in the order in which the Holy Spirit has placed them. We should have faith, and that faith should work. Trust in God sets us upon holy doing: we trust God for good, and then we do good. We do not sit still because we trust, but we arouse ourselves and expect the LORD to work through us and by us. It is not ours to worry and do evil but to trust and do good. We neither trust without doing nor do without trusting. Adversaries would root us out if they could; but by trusting and doing we dwell in the land. We will not go into Egypt, but we will remain in Immanuel’s land-the providence of God, the Canaan of covenant love. We are not so easily to be got rid of as the LORD’s enemies suppose. They cannot thrust us Out nor stamp us out: where God has given us a name and a place, there we abide. But what about the supply of our necessities? The LORD has put a “verily” into this promise. As sure as God is true, His people shall be fed. It is theirs to trust and to do, and it is the LORD’s to do according to their trust. If not fed by ravens, or fed by an Obadiah, or fed by a widow, yet they shall be fed somehow. Away, ye fears!

Attention! Praise the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, who serve in the Lord’s temple during the night. May the Lord, the Creator of heaven and earth, bless you from Zion!  —Ps 134:1, 3
Strange time for adoration, you say, to stand in God’s house by night, to worship in the depth of sorrow —it is indeed an arduous thing. Yes, and therein lies the blessing; it is the test of perfect faith. If I would know the love of my friend I must see what it can do in the winter. So with the Divine love. It is easy for me to worship in the summer sunshine when the melodies of life are in the air and the fruits of life are on the tree. But let the song of the bird cease and the fruit of the tree fall, and will my heart still go on to sing? Will I stand in God’s house by night? Will I love Him in His own night? Will I watch with Him even one hour in His Gethsemane? Will I help to bear His cross up the dolorous way? Will I stand beside Him in His dying moments with Mary and the beloved disciple? Will I be able with Nicodemus to take up the dead Christ? Then is my worship complete and my blessing glorious. My love has come to Him in His humiliation. My faith has found Him in His lowliness. My heart has recognized His majesty through His mean disguise, and I know at last that I desire not the gift but the Giver. When I can stand in His house by night I have accepted Him for Himself alone.
—George Matheson
“My goal is God Himself, not joy, nor peace,
Nor even blessing, but Himself, my God;
’Tis His to lead me there, not mine, but His
’At any cost, dear Lord, by any road!’
“So faith bounds forward to its goal in God,
And love can trust her Lord to lead her there;
’Upheld by Him, my soul is following hard
Till God hath full fulfilled my deepest prayer.
“No matter if the way be sometimes dark,
No matter though the cost be ofttimes great,
He knoweth how I best shall reach the mark,
The way that leads to Him must needs be straight.
“One thing I know, I cannot say Him nay;
One thing I do, I press towards my Lord;
My God my glory here, from day to day,
And in the glory there my Great Reward.”

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

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.

“Roll on Jehovah thy way” (Ps. 37:6, margin).

Whatever it is that presses thee, go tell the Father; put the whole matter over into His hand, and so shalt thou be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yes, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet, diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.
R. Leighton

Build a little fence of trust
Around today;
Fill the space with loving work
And therein stay.

We shall find it impossible to commit our way unto the Lord, unless it be a way that He approves. It is only by faith that a man can commit his way unto the Lord; if there be the slightest doubt in the heart that “our way” is not a good one, faith will refuse to have anything to do with it. This committing of our way must be a continuous, not a single act. However extraordinary and unexpected may seem to be His guidance, however near the precipice He may take you, you are not to snatch the guiding reins out of His hands.

Are we willing to have all our ways submitted to God, for Him to pronounce judgment on them? There is nothing a Christian needs to be more scrutinizing about than about his confirmed habits and views. He is too apt to take for granted the Divine approbation of them. Why are some Christians so anxious, so fearful? Evidently because they have not left their way with the Lord. They took it to Him, but brought it away with them again.

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!

The Vitality of the Light!

Today’s Reading
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
JOHN 1:4
And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
1 JOHN 5:11
The Vitality of the Light!
John 1:4 says of Jesus, “In Him was life, and that life was the light of men.” Here is the vitality of the light. Light and life are inextricably interwoven. You cannot have life without light. When God wanted to bring life out of chaos in creation, He said, “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3). When the light appeared, the seas began to swarm with life. The seeds of earth began to bud and blossom.
I’ve always loved natural science. I can remember that the first big word I ever really locked in on was photosynthesis. I remember being enthralled as my teacher explained the meaning and process of photosynthesis. She told us, “The word photo means ‘light,’ and the word synthesis means ‘to put together.’ Green plants produce food by putting chemicals together with light.” It is light that causes these plants to produce food, and the whole life chain of animals and humans depends on this process.
Life itself is built on sunlight. Without sunlight, our world would become cold and dark and dead. When Jesus was born in Bethlehem, He came to give us life. When the Holy Spirit shined the light of the gospel into our hearts, a divine photosynthesis took place producing life where before there was only death. “The entrance of Your words gives light,” says the psalmist (Psalm 119:130).
Jesus is the Light. Do you know that life followed Jesus everywhere He went during His earthly  ministry? Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
No matter how cold and dark your world may seem, it can be brought back to life when the glorious light of the Son of God shines into your heart. There is no life without light. The life and the light went out of Adam’s race when he sinned in the Garden of Eden. But when we come to Christ, the Lord comes back in, turns on the light, and life begins again. Jesus is the Light of the world. That little Babe in Bethlehem turned on the light and gave us eternal 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.”

God Is Our Ally!
“But if thou shalt indeed obey His voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries”   (Exodus 23:22).
The LORD Christ in the midst of His people is to be acknowledged and obeyed. He is the vice-regent of God and speaks in the Father’s name, and it is ours implicitly and immediately to do as He commands. We shall lose the promise if we disregard the precept. To full obedience how large the blessing! The LORD enters into a league with His people, offensive and defensive. He will bless those who bless us and curse those who curse us. God will go heart and soul with His people and enter in deepest sympathy into their position. What a protection this affords us! We need not concern ourselves about our adversaries when we are assured that they have become the adversaries of God. If Jehovah has taken up our quarrel, we may leave the foemen in His hands. So far as our own interest is concerned we have no enemies; but for the cause of truth and righteousness we take up arms and go forth to conflict. In this sacred war we are allied with the eternal God, and if we carefully obey the law of our LORD Jesus, He is engaged to put forth all His power on our behalf. Wherefore we fear no man.

 

December 11

But if we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort that you experience in your patient endurance of the same sufferings that we also suffer. And our hope for you is steadfast because we know that as you share in our sufferings, so also you will share in our comfort. —2 Cor 1:6-7
Are there not some in your circle to whom you naturally betake yourself in times of trial and sorrow? They always seem to speak the right word, to give the very counsel you are longing for; you do not realize, however, the cost which they had to pay ere they became so skillful in binding up the gaping wounds and drying tears. But if you were to investigate their past history you would find that they have suffered more than most. They have watched the slow untwisting of some silver cord on which the lamp of life hung. They have seen the golden bowl of joy dashed to their feet, and its contents spilt. They have stood by ebbing tides, and drooping gourds, and noon sunsets; but all this has been necessary to make them the nurses, the physicians, the priests of men. The boxes that come from foreign climes are clumsy enough; but they contain spices which scent the air with the fragrance of the Orient. So suffering is rough and hard to bear; but it hides beneath it discipline, education, possibilities, which not only leave us nobler, but perfect us to help others. Do not fret, or set your teeth, or wait doggedly for the suffering to pass; but get out of it all you can, both for yourself and for your service to your generation, according to the will of God.
—Selected
Once I heard a song of sweetness,
As it cleft the morning air,
Sounding in its blest completeness,
Like a tender, pleading prayer;
And I sought to find the singer,
Whence the wondrous song was borne;
And I found a bird, sore wounded,
Pinioned by a cruel thorn.
I have seen a soul in sadness,
While its wings with pain were furl’d,
Giving hope, and cheer and gladness
That should bless a weeping world;
And I knew that life of sweetness,
Was of pain and sorrow row borne,
And a stricken soul was singing,
With its heart against a thorn.
Ye are told of One who loved you,
Of a Saviour crucified,
Ye are told of nails that pinioned,
And a spear that pierced His side;
Ye are told of cruel scourging,
Of a Saviour bearing scorn,
And He died for your salvation,
With His brow against a thorn.
Ye “are not above the Master.”
Will you breathe a sweet refrain?
And His grace will be sufficient,
When your heart is pierced with pain.
Will you live to bless His loved ones,
Tho’ your life be bruised and torn,
Like the bird that sang so sweetly,
With its heart against a thorn?

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

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.

March 5

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.

“Roll on Jehovah thy way” (Ps. 37:6, margin).

Whatever it is that presses thee, go tell the Father; put the whole matter over into His hand, and so shalt thou be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yes, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet, diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.
R. Leighton

Build a little fence of trust
Around today;
Fill the space with loving work
And therein stay.

We shall find it impossible to commit our way unto the Lord, unless it be a way that He approves. It is only by faith that a man can commit his way unto the Lord; if there be the slightest doubt in the heart that “our way” is not a good one, faith will refuse to have anything to do with it. This committing of our way must be a continuous, not a single act. However extraordinary and unexpected may seem to be His guidance, however near the precipice He may take you, you are not to snatch the guiding reins out of His hands.

Are we willing to have all our ways submitted to God, for Him to pronounce judgment on them? There is nothing a Christian needs to be more scrutinizing about than about his confirmed habits and views. He is too apt to take for granted the Divine approbation of them. Why are some Christians so anxious, so fearful? Evidently because they have not left their way with the Lord. They took it to Him, but brought it away with them again.

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!

The Constancy of the Light!

Today’s Reading
He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
JOHN 1:2–3
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
JAMES 1:17
The Constancy of the Light
As we rejoice in the arrival of the Christmas season, let us celebrate the constancy of the light that shined into the world when Jesus was born of the virgin Mary. John tells us that Jesus was “in the beginning with God” (John 1:2). Furthermore, Jesus is the Creator God without whom “nothing was made that has been made” (John 1:3).
Jesus is the eternal God. God cannot change. He declared through the prophet Malachi, “I am the Lord, I do not change” (Malachi 3:6). James made this wonderful statement: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning” (James 1:17).
In the natural world, the speed of light is a constant. When Albert Einstein formulated his famous theory of relativity, he said he was able to put forward this theory because there is one thing and one thing alone in the world that is constant—the speed of light. Everything else is relative. Light is the only thing that is constant in our natural universe. And Jesus is our one constant in the spiritual realm.
Even the sun, which has never failed to give its light since the day God created it, will one day cease to shine. We are told that the energy of the sun is slowly being used up. You won’t have to worry about the sun burning out in our lifetime, but even the sun is not eternal. Its light will not shine endlessly. The light of Jesus, however, will illumine heaven throughout all eternity.
What a wonderful truth to consider this Christmas! We will soon welcome a new year. And though our world is a very uncertain place, we have this certainty to lean on: “. . . His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22–23).
Not only do we have the constancy of Jesus to depend on for today, but someday we are going to be made just like Him (1 John 3:2). We will bask in the direct rays of His glorious light forever! Praise God for the changeless, constant light of the Lord Jesus Christ!

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.”

December 10
The “All” of Belief!
“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth”  
(Mark 9:23).
Our unbelief is the greatest hindrance in our way; in fact, there is no other real difficulty as to our spiritual progress and prosperity. The LORD can do everything; but when He makes a rule that according to our faith so shall it be unto us, our unbelief ties the hands of His omnipotence. Yes, the confederacies of evil shall be scattered if we can but believe. Despised truth shall lift its head if we will but have confidence in the God of truth. We can bear our load of trouble or pass uninjured through the waves of distress if we can gird our loins with the girdle of peace, that girdle which is buckled on by the hands of trust. What can we not believe? Is everything possible except believing in God? Yet He is always true; why do we not believe in Him? He is always faithful to His word; why can we not trust Him? When we are in a right state of heart, faith costs no effort: it is then as natural for us to rely upon God as for a child to trust his father. The worst of it is that we can believe God about everything except the present pressing trial. This is folly. Come, my soul, shake off such sinfulness, and trust thy God with the load, the labor, the longing of this present. This done, all is done.

For this our light and transitory burden of suffering is achieving for us a weight of glory (2 Cor. 4:17). (Weymouth)
The question is repeatedly asked–Why is the life of man drenched with so much blood, and blistered with so many tears? The answer is to be found in the word “achieving”; these things are achieving for us something precious. They are teaching us not only the way to victory, but better still the laws of victory. There is a compensation in every sorrow, and the sorrow is working out the compensation. It is the cry of the dear old hymn:
“Nearer my God to Thee, nearer to Thee,
E’en tho’ it be a cross that raiseth me.”
Joy sometimes needs pain to give it birth. Fanny Crosby could never have written her beautiful hymn, “I shall see Him face to face,” were it not for the fact that she had never looked upon the green fields nor the evening sunset nor the kindly twinkle in her mother’s eye. It was the loss of her own vision that helped her to gain her remarkable spiritual discernment.
It is comforting to know that sorrow tarries only for the night; it takes its leave in the morning. A thunderstorm is very brief when put alongside the long summer day. “Weeping may endure for the night but joy cometh in the morning.”
–Songs in the Night
There is a peace that cometh after sorrow,
Of hope surrendered, not of hope fulfilled;
A peace that looketh not upon tomorrow,
But calmly on a tempest that it stilled.
A peace that lives not now in joy’s excesses,
Nor in the happy life of love secure;
But in the unerring strength the heart possesses,
Of conflicts won while learning to endure.
A peace there is, in sacrifice secluded,
A life subdued, from will and passion free;
‘Tis not the peace that over Eden brooded,

But that which triumphed in Gethsemane.

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

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.

“Roll on Jehovah thy way” (Ps. 37:6, margin).

Whatever it is that presses thee, go tell the Father; put the whole matter over into His hand, and so shalt thou be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yes, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet, diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.
R. Leighton

Build a little fence of trust
Around today;
Fill the space with loving work

We shall find it impossible to commit our way unto the Lord, unless it be a way that He approves. It is only by faith that a man can commit his way unto the Lord; if there be the slightest doubt in the heart that “our way” is not a good one, faith will refuse to have anything to do with it. This committing of our way must be a continuous, not a single act. However extraordinary and unexpected may seem to be His guidance, however near the precipice He may take you, you are not to snatch the guiding reins out of His hands.

Are we willing to have all our ways submitted to God, for Him to pronounce judgment on them? There is nothing a Christian needs to be more scrutinizing about than about his confirmed habits and views. He is too apt to take for granted the Divine approbation of them. Why are some Christians so anxious, so fearful? Evidently because they have not left their way with the Lord. They took it to Him, but brought it away with them again.

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!

The Purity of the Light!

Today’s Reading
There was a man sent from God whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.
JOHN 1: 6–10
The Purity of the Light
Today we want to emphasize Jesus as the purity of the light of Christmas. The Bible says that Jesus was “in the world” (John 1:10). But the Lord was most assuredly not of this world. He did not have His origin in the world. His birth in Bethlehem was not the beginning of His life, for He is the Lord of heaven.
Because Jesus was not of this world, He is the pure, incorruptible Light. In the natural world, there is nothing as pure as light. Light can never be defiled or corrupted, no matter what it passes through or what it falls on. Light can never be debased or sullied. You can shine light through a dirty windowpane or a glass of muddy water, and all the light does is expose the dirt. The light is not touched by the dirt.
Even the purest water flowing from a clear mountain spring will become contaminated as it flows along. Even the purest looking crystals of snow falling from heaven contain tiny particles of debris. And as that snow falls on the ground, it will become corrupted. But light can never be defiled. Therefore, light is a wonderful picture of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus exposed sin, but He was never contaminated by sin. Jesus could touch sinners, but sin never touched Him. He was totally undefiled. When the Bible calls Jesus the “light of the world,” it’s a reminder of the sinless, stainless purity of the Son of God. Jesus was the only Person Who could look other people in the face and say, “Which of you convicts Me of sin?” (John 8:46).
The Baby born in Bethlehem was “the true Light” (John 1:9), the pure light of heaven. Jesus was in the world but not of the world. This Christmas, as we behold Jesus, the Light of the world, think about His incorruptible purity.

Following Leads to Honor
“If any man serve Me, let him follow Me; and where l am, there shall also My servant be: if any man serve Me, him will My Father honor”   (John 12:26).
The highest service is imitation. If I would be Christ’s servant I must be His follower. To do as Jesus did is the surest way of bringing honor to His name. Let me mind this every day. If I imitate Jesus I shall have His company: if I am like Him I shall be with Him. In due time He will take me up to dwell with Him above, if, meanwhile, I have striven to follow Him here below. After His suffering our LORD came to His throne, and even so, after we have suffered a while with Him here below, we also shall arrive in glory. The issue of our LORD’s life shall be the issue of ours: if we are with Him in His humiliation we shall be with Him in His glory. Come, my soul, pluck up courage and put down thy feet in the blood-marked footprints which thy LORD has left thee. Let me not fail to note that the Father will honor those who follow His Son. If He sees me true to Jesus, He will put marks of favor and honor upon me for His Son’s sake. No honor can be like this. Princes and emperors bestow the mere shadows of honor; the substance of glory comes from the Father. Wherefore, my soul, cling thou to thy LORD Jesus more closely than ever.

Put on as the elect of God, kindness (Colossians 3:12).
There is a story of an old man who carried a little can of oil with him everywhere he went, and if he passed through a door that squeaked, he poured a little oil on the hinges. If a gate was hard to open, he oiled the latch. And thus he passed through life lubricating all hard places and making it easier for those who came after him. People called him eccentric, queer, and cranky; but the old man went steadily on refilling his can of oil when it became empty, and oiled the hard places he found.
There are many lives that creak and grate harshly as they live day by day. Nothing goes right with them. They need lubricating with the oil of gladness, gentleness, or thoughtfulness.
Have you your own can of oil with you? Be ready with your oil of helpfulness in the early morning to the one nearest you. It may lubricate the whole day for him. The oil, of good cheer to the downhearted one–Oh, how much it may mean! The word of courage to the despairing. Speak it. Our lives touch others but once, perhaps, on the road of life; and then, mayhap, our ways diverge, never to meet again.
The oil of kindness has worn the sharp, hard edges off of many a sin-hardened life and left it soft and pliable and ready for the redeeming grace of the Saviour. A word spoken pleasantly is a large spot of sunshine on a sad heart. Therefore, “Give others the sunshine, tell Jesus the rest.”
We cannot know the grief
That men may borrow;
We cannot see the souls
Storm-swept by sorrow;
But love can shine upon the way
Today, tomorrow;
Let us be kind.
Upon the wheel of pain so many weary lives are broken,
We live in vain who give no tender token.
Let us be kind.
“Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love”
(Romans 12:10).

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

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.

“Roll on Jehovah thy way” (Ps. 37:6, margin).

Whatever it is that presses thee, go tell the Father; put the whole matter over into His hand, and so shalt thou be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yes, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet, diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.
R. Leighton

We shall find it impossible to commit our way unto the Lord, unless it be a way that He approves. It is only by faith that a man can commit his way unto the Lord; if there be the slightest doubt in the heart that “our way” is not a good one, faith will refuse to have anything to do with it. This committing of our way must be a continuous, not a single act. However extraordinary and unexpected may seem to be His guidance, however near the precipice He may take you, you are not to snatch the guiding reins out of His hands.

Are we willing to have all our ways submitted to God, for Him to pronounce judgment on them? There is nothing a Christian needs to be more scrutinizing about than about his confirmed habits and views. He is too apt to take for granted the Divine approbation of them. Why are some Christians so anxious, so fearful? Evidently because they have not left their way with the Lord. They took it to Him, but brought it away with them again.

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!

A Great Light!

Today’s Reading
The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.
ISAIAH 9:2
A Great Light
If there is one truth that leaps out at us from the pages of Scripture at Christmas, it is that Jesus came to be the Light of the world! Light came into this dark world when Jesus was born in Bethlehem. The prophet Isaiah calls Jesus “a great light” Who has shined on those who “walked in darkness” (Isaiah 9:2). The prophet is referring to spiritual darkness, which also is very great. But the darkness was no match for the light of God’s Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist, also anticipated the coming of the Savior. In his great song of praise, he prophesied that Jesus would “give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace” (Luke 1:79).
Another man of God by the name of Simeon pointed to the Light. As Joseph and Mary came to the temple to dedicate the infant Jesus, Simeon took the baby to bless Him. God revealed to Simeon the identity of the Child, and he rejoiced that God had sent “a light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel” (Luke 2:32).
No matter where you turn in God’s Word, you will find that Christmas is about light! We love to sing the Christmas carol, “Silent Night, Holy Night.” But this great hymn is not about the night or about darkness. It’s about the Light. The third stanza of “Silent Night” says, “Son of God, / love’s pure light / Radiant beams from Thy holy face, / With the dawn of redeeming grace.”
We sing another Christmas carol, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.” The last stanza invites us to “Hail the heaven born Prince of Peace! / Hail the Son of righteousness! / Light and life to all He brings, / Risen with healing in His wings.” We sing at Christmas because we have something to sing about! Light has come into the world, and we don’t ever need to walk in darkness again!

Gift of Strength; Peace to Bless
“The LORD will give strength unto His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace”   (Psalm 29:11).

David had just heard the voice of the LORD in a thunderstorm and had seen His power in the hurricane whose path he had described; and now, in the cool calm after the storm, that overwhelming power by which heaven and earth are shaken is promised to be the strength of the chosen. He who wings the unerring bolt will give to His redeemed the wings of eagles; He who shakes the earth with His voice will terrify the enemies of His saints and give His children peace. Why are we weak when we have divine strength to flee to? Why are we troubled when the LORD’s own peace is ours? Jesus, the mighty God, is our strength; let us put Him on and go forth to our service. Jesus, our blessed LORD, is also our peace; let us repose in Him this day and end our fears. What a blessing to have Him for our strength and peace both now and forever! That same God who rides upon the storm in days of tempest will also rule the hurricane of our tribulation and send us, before long, days of peace. We shall have strength for storms and songs for fair weather. Let us begin to sing at once unto God, our strength and our peace. Away, dark thoughts! Up, faith and hope!

Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts. And this is but a light thing in the sight of the Lord: he will deliver the Moabites also into your hands” (2 Kings 3:16-18).
To human thinking it was simply impossible, but nothing is hard for God. Without a sound or sign, from sources invisible and apparently impossible, the floods came stealing in all night long; and when the morning dawned, those ditches were flooded with the crystal waters, and reflecting the rays of the morning sun from the red hills of Edom.
Our unbelief is always wanting some outward sign. The religion of many is largely sensational, and they are not satisfied of its genuineness without manifestations, etc.; but the greatest triumph of faith is to be still and know that He is God.
The great victory of faith is to stand before some impassable Red Sea, and hear the Master say, “Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord,” and “Go forward!” As we step out without any sign or sound–not a wave-splash–and wetting our very feet as we take the first step into its waters, still marching on we shall see the sea divide and the pathway open through the very midst of the waters.
If we have seen the miraculous workings of God in some marvelous case of healing or some extraordinary providential deliverance, I am sure the thing that has impressed us most has been the quietness with which it was all done, the absence of everything spectacular and sensational, and the utter sense of nothingness which came to us as we stood in the presence of this mighty God and felt how easy, it was for Him to do it all without the faintest effort on His part or the slightest help on ours.
It is not the part of faith to question, but to obey. The ditches were made, and the water came pouring in from some supernatural source. What a lesson for our faith!
Are you craving a spiritual blessing? Open the trenches, and God will fill them. And this, too, in the most unexpected places and in the most unexpected ways. Oh, for that faith that can act by faith and not by sight, and expect God to work although we see no wind or rain.
–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.

“Roll on Jehovah thy way” (Ps. 37:6, margin).

Whatever it is that presses thee, go tell the Father; put the whole matter over into His hand, and so shalt thou be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yes, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet, diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.

We shall find it impossible to commit our way unto the Lord, unless it be a way that He approves. It is only by faith that a man can commit his way unto the Lord; if there be the slightest doubt in the heart that “our way” is not a good one, faith will refuse to have anything to do with it. This committing of our way must be a continuous, not a single act. However extraordinary and unexpected may seem to be His guidance, however near the precipice He may take you, you are not to snatch the guiding reins out of His hands.

Are we willing to have all our ways submitted to God, for Him to pronounce judgment on them? There is nothing a Christian needs to be more scrutinizing about than about his confirmed habits and views. He is too apt to take for granted the Divine approbation of them. Why are some Christians so anxious, so fearful? Evidently because they have not left their way with the Lord. They took it to Him, but brought it away with them again.

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!

The Greatest of These is Love!

Today’s Reading
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:12–13
The Greatest of These Is Love
There was once an aged Christian man who was dying. A friend came to see him, and the dying man said, “I’ve just had three other visitors. Two of them are gone, but the third visitor will stay with me forever.” The friend asked, “Who were these visitors?” The aged man said, “Well, the first visitor was Faith. I visited with Faith and enjoyed Faith, but then I told Faith good-bye. I said, ‘Thank God for your company, Faith. I have walked with you since I first trusted Christ. But now I’m going to die and I won’t need you anymore, because Faith will be lost in sight when I get to heaven and see Jesus face-to-face.’”
Then he continued, “My second visitor was Hope. We also had a wonderful time. But then I said to Hope, ‘Farewell, Hope. You’ve helped me in the hour of battle. You’ve been with me in distress when my heart was broken and when I’ve had so many needs. You’ve been there like a rock, like an anchor. But, Hope, I won’t need you anymore. I’m going to heaven where hope turns to reality.’”
But then the man said, “The third visitor who came to see me is still with me, and will always be with me. His name is Love. I said to him, ‘Love, you’ve been my friend. You’ve linked me to God. You’ve linked me to my fellowman. You have comforted and gladdened me in all of my pilgrimages. “‘Now I’m going to heaven. But, Love, I’m not going to leave you behind. You will enter the city of God with me. And you, my friend, will be perfected in heaven.’”
Is that not what the Bible says? Look at the final verses of 1 Corinthians 13. Of the three gifts Paul mentions, the greatest is love. Do you want to give others the best Christmas gift possible? Give them the love of Christ. He is our life, our joy. He is the story of Christmas.

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.”

“Through,” Not Engulfed!
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee”   (Isaiah 43:2).
Bridge there is none: we must go through the waters and feel the rush of the rivers. The presence of God in the flood is better than a ferryboat. Tried we must be, but triumphant we shall be; for Jehovah Himself, who is mightier than many waters, shall be with us. Whenever else He may be away from His people, the LORD will surely be with them in difficulties and dangers. The sorrows of life may rise to an extraordinary height, but the LORD is equal to every occasion. The enemies of God can put in our way dangers of their own making, namely, persecutions and cruel mockings, which are like a burning, fiery furnace. What then? We shall walk through the fires. God being with us, we shall not be burned; nay, not even the smell of fire shall remain upon us. Oh, the wonderful security of the heaven-born and heaven-bound pilgrim! Floods cannot drown him, nor fires burn him. Thy presence, O LORD, is the protection of Thy saints from the varied perils of the road. Be-hold, in faith I commit myself unto Thee, and my spirit enters into rest.

Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown (Revelations 3:11).
George Mueller bears this testimony, “When it pleased God in July, 1829, to reveal to my heart the truth of the personal return of the Lord Jesus, and to show me that I had made a great mistake in looking for the conversion of the world, the effect that it produced upon me was this: From my inmost soul I was stirred up to feel compassion for perishing sinners, and for the slumbering world around me lying in the wicked one, and considered, ‘Ought I not to do what I can for the Lord Jesus while He tarries, and to rouse a slumbering church?”‘
There may be many hard years of hard work before the consummation, but the signs are to me so encouraging that I would not be unbelieving if I saw the wing of the apocalyptic angel spread for its last triumphal flight in this day’s sunset; or if tomorrow morning the ocean cables should thrill us with the news that Christ the Lord had alighted on Mount Olivet or Mount Calvary to proclaim universal dominion.
O you dead churches wake up! O Christ, descend! Scarred temple, take the crown! Bruised hand, take the sceptre! Wounded foot, step the throne! Thine is the kingdom.
–Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage, D. D.
It may be in the evening,
When the work of the day is done,
And you have time to sit in the twilight,
And watch the sinking sun,
While the long bright day dies slowly
Over the sea,
And the hours grow quiet and holy
With thoughts of Me;
While you hear the village children
Passing along the street
Among those passing footsteps
May come the sound of My Feet.
Therefore I tell you, Watch!
By the light of the evening star
When the room is growing dusky
As the clouds afar,
Let the door be on the latch In your home,
For it may be through the gloaming
I will come.

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

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.

“Roll on Jehovah thy way” (Ps. 37:6, margin).

Whatever it is that presses thee, go tell the Father; put the whole matter over into His hand, and so shalt thou be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yes, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet, diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.
R. Leighton

We shall find it impossible to commit our way unto the Lord, unless it be a way that He approves. It is only by faith that a man can commit his way unto the Lord; if there be the slightest doubt in the heart that “our way” is not a good one, faith will refuse to have anything to do with it. This committing of our way must be a continuous, not a single act. However extraordinary and unexpected may seem to be His guidance, however near the precipice He may take you, you are not to snatch the guiding reins out of His hands.

Are we willing to have all our ways submitted to God, for Him to pronounce judgment on them? There is nothing a Christian needs to be more scrutinizing about than about his confirmed habits and views. He is too apt to take for granted the Divine approbation of them. Why are some Christians so anxious, so fearful? Evidently because they have not left their way with the Lord. They took it to Him, but brought it away with them again.

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!

The Victory of Love!

Today’s Reading
Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
                       1 CORINTHIANS 13:8–10
The Victory of Love
Let’s consider the victory of love found in the wonderful declaration of verse 8: “Love never fails.” That’s one of the greatest statements in the Bible. Love is eternal. It will never pass away. Notice the things that will pass away, however. Prophecy, tongues, and knowledge are impressive gifts, but they will all
pass away. Remember verse 2, where Paul says that prophecy, knowledge, and faith add up to nothing without love. Paul is telling us not to get puffed up about what we know, because when it’s all said and done we only know “in part” (v. 9).
The truth is that we don’t know 1 percent of anything. Some people think they know the future, but all they really have is an educated guess, or maybe a hunch. We are also warned against getting puffed up about the gifts we possess. The gift of tongues was one of the more spectacular spiritual gifts for the early Church, but the gift of tongues fades and will be stilled. Love, however, endures.
A little child can ask questions about heaven that a doctor of theology can’t answer. We need humility in these areas. But one thing we can know is that love will last. Love is more important than education. It’s more important than ability. It is more important than prophecy. All of these things are going to pass away. May your family be known for the gospel it shares and the love it shows. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be famous for the gospel and famous for love?
When Christmas guests walk into your home, may they say, “This is a home that loves.” Love is not only the greatest virtue; it is also the greatest commandment. Jesus Himself said that love for God is the first and greatest commandment (Matthew 22:37–40). If love is the greatest commandment, then what would be the greatest sin? It must be the failure to love, because that would be breaking the greatest commandment. Love is the greatest virtue and the greatest commandment. It is the greatest testimony!

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.”

High Places of Defense 
“He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure”   (Isaiah 33:16).

The man to whom God has given grace to be of blameless life dwells in perfect security. He dwells on high, above the world, Out of gunshot of the enemy, and near to heaven. He has high aims and motives, and he finds high comforts and company. He rejoices in the mountains of eternal love, wherein he has his abode. He is defended by munitions of stupendous rock. The firmest things in the universe are the promises and purposes of the unchanging God, and these are the safeguard of the obedient believer. He is provided for by this great promise: “Bread shall be given him.” As the enemy cannot climb the fort, nor break down the rampart, so the fortress cannot be captured by siege and famine. The LORD, who rained manna in the wilderness, will keep His people in good store even when they are surrounded by those who would starve them. But what if water should fail? That cannot be. “His waters shall be sure.” There is a never-failing well within the impregnable fortress. The LORD sees that nothing is wanting. None can touch the citizen of the true Zion. However fierce the enemy, the LORD will preserve His chosen.

O Lord , I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps (Jeremiah 10:23).

Lead me in a plain path (Psalms 27:11).

Many people want to direct God, instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him; to show Him a way, instead of passively following where He leads.
–Madame Guyon

I said: “Let me walk in the field”;
God said: ‘Nay, walk in the town”;
I said: “There are no flowers there”;
He said: “No flowers, but a crown.”
I said: “But the sky is black,
There is nothing but noise and din”;
But He wept as He sent me back,
“There is more,” He said, “there is sin
I said: “But the air is thick,
And fogs are veiling the sun”;
He answered: “Yet souls are sick,
And souls in the dark undone.”
I said: “I shall miss the light,
And friends will miss me, they say”;
He answered me, “Choose tonight,
If I am to miss you, or they.”
I pleaded for time to be given;
He said: “Is it hard to decide?
It will not seem hard in Heaven
To have, followed the steps of your Guide.”
I cast one look at the fields,
Then set my face to the town;
He said: “My child, do you yield?
Will you leave the flowers for the crown?”
Then into His hand went mine,
And into my heart came He;
And I walk in a light Divine,

The path I had feared to see.
–George MacDonald

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

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.

“Roll on Jehovah thy way” (Ps. 37:6, margin).

Whatever it is that presses thee, go tell the Father; put the whole matter over into His hand, and so shalt thou be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yes, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet, diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.
R. Leighton

Build a little fence of trust
Around today;
Fill the space with loving work
And therein stay.

We shall find it impossible to commit our way unto the Lord, unless it be a way that He approves. It is only by faith that a man can commit his way unto the Lord; if there be the slightest doubt in the heart that “our way” is not a good one, faith will refuse to have anything to do with it. This committing of our way must be a continuous, not a single act. However extraordinary and unexpected may seem to be His guidance, however near the precipice He may take you, you are not to snatch the guiding reins out of His hands.

Are we willing to have all our ways submitted to God, for Him to pronounce judgment on them? There is nothing a Christian needs to be more scrutinizing about than about his confirmed habits and views. He is too apt to take for granted the Divine approbation of them. Why are some Christians so anxious, so fearful? Evidently because they have not left their way with the Lord. They took it to Him, but brought it away with them again.

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

Love is Not Rude or Selfish!

Today’s Reading
Love . . . does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 CORINTHIANS 13:5–7
Love is Not Rude or Selfish
Continue to think with me about additional virtues of love. How many times have you heard someone say, “Well, I just say what I think. I tell it like it is”? More often than not, “telling it like it is” is an excuse for rudeness. It springs from a lack of love. According to Paul, love “does not behave rudely” (v. 5). He is referring to unseemly, ill-mannered behavior. Love is not that way! Good manners can be a tremendous witness for Christ at Christmas. When the lines at the store get long and tempers get short, a word spoken in well-mannered love can soothe troubled waters.
The apostle Paul follows this with another crucial quality of Christlike love: Love “does not seek its own.” Another way to say this is that love is not selfish. Our problem as sinful human beings is that we want what we want when we want it. If we would cure selfishness, it would be like replanting the Garden of Eden!
Christmas is a wonderful time for a lesson on selflessness, especially with children. Little eyes and hearts often become filled with unbridled desire as children begin thinking about the gifts they want for Christmas. We all need to remember a truth that Jesus taught: “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).
Real love is also even tempered, or “not easily provoked.” It doesn’t have a hair trigger. Neither is love suspicious. It “thinks no evil.” What that means is, love doesn’t think the worst. It’s not paranoid. It doesn’t join the society of mudslingers. The person who doesn’t trust anyone does not really know true love. In verse 6, Paul mentions another virtue of love. He says that love does not take satisfaction in sin. It’s one thing to sin, but it’s another to rejoice in sin or to brag about it. Love rejoices when truth triumphs, not when evil does.
Finally, love “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, [and] endures all things” (v. 7). That doesn’t mean we should love and endorse wickedness. But it does mean that we will love those who have failed, just as God has loved us.

Covered and Protected!
“He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His Truth shall be thy shield and buckler”   (Psalm 91:4).
A condescending simile indeed! Just as a hen protects her brood and allows them to nestle under her wings, so will the LORD defend His people and permit them to hide away in Him. Have we not seen the little chicks peeping out from under the mother’s feathers? Have we not heard their little cry of contented joy? In this way let us shelter ourselves in our God and feel overflowing peace in knowing that He is guarding us. While the LORD covers us, we trust. It would be strange if we did not. How can we distrust when Jehovah Himself becomes house and home, refuge and rest to us? This done, we go out to war in His name and enjoy the same guardian care. We need shield and buckler, and when we implicitly trust God, even as the chick trusts the hen, we find His truth arming us from head to foot. The LORD cannot lie; He must be faithful to His people; His promise must stand. This sure truth is all the shield we need. Behind it we defy the fiery darts of the enemy. Come, my soul, hide under those great wings, lose thyself among those soft feathers! How happy thou art!

He went up into a mountain apart (Matthew 14:23).
One of the blessings of the old-time Sabbath was its calm, its restfulness, its holy peace. There is a strange strength conceived in solitude. Crows go in flocks and wolves in packs, but the lion and the eagle are solitaires.
Strength is not in bluster and noise. Strength is in quietness. The lake must be calm if the heavens are to be reflected on its surface. Our Lord loved the people, but how often we read of His going away from them for a brief season. He tried every little while to withdraw from the crowd. He was always stealing away at evening to the hills. Most of His ministry was carried on in the towns and cities by the seashore, but He loved the hills the best, and oftentimes when night fell He would plunge into their peaceful depths.
The one thing needed above all others today is that we shall go apart with our Lord, and sit at His feet in the sacred privacy of His blessed presence. Oh, for the lost art of meditation! Oh, for the culture of the secret place! Oh, for the tonic of waiting upon God!
–Selected
It is well to live in the valley sweet,
Where the work of the world is done,
Where the reapers sing in the fields of wheat,|
As they toil till the set of sun.
But beyond the meadows, the hills I see
Where the noises of traffic cease,
And I follow a Voice that calleth to me
From the hilltop regions of peace.
Aye, to live is sweet in the valley fair,
And to toil till the set of sun;
But my spirit yearns for the hilltop’s air
When the day and its work are done.
For a Presence breathes o’er the silent hills,
And its sweetness is living yet;
The same deep calm all the hillside fills,
As breathed over Olivet.
“Every life that would be strong must have its Holy of Holies into which only God enters.”

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

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.

“Roll on Jehovah thy way” (Ps. 37:6, margin).

Whatever it is that presses thee, go tell the Father; put the whole matter over into His hand, and so shalt thou be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yes, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet, diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.
R. Leighton

Build a little fence of trust
Around today;
Fill the space with loving work
And therein stay.

Look not through the sheltering bars
Upon tomorrow;
God will help thee bear what comes
Of joy or sorrow.
Mary Butts

We shall find it impossible to commit our way unto the Lord, unless it be a way that He approves. It is only by faith that a man can commit his way unto the Lord; if there be the slightest doubt in the heart that “our way” is not a good one, faith will refuse to have anything to do with it. This committing of our way must be a continuous, not a single act. However extraordinary and unexpected may seem to be His guidance, however near the precipice He may take you, you are not to snatch the guiding reins out of His hands.

Are we willing to have all our ways submitted to God, for Him to pronounce judgment on them? There is nothing a Christian needs to be more scrutinizing about than about his confirmed habits and views. He is too apt to take for granted the Divine approbation of them. Why are some Christians so anxious, so fearful? Evidently because they have not left their way with the Lord. They took it to Him, but brought it away with them again.

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 28:16b 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.”

Peace Whatever Exposure
“I will make them a Covenant Of Peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods”   (Ezekiel 34:25).
It is the height of grace that Jehovah should be in covenant with man, a I feeble, sinful, and dying creature. Yet the LORD has solemnly entered into a faithful compact with us, and from that covenant He will never turn aside. In virtue of this covenant we are safe. As lions and wolves are driven off by shepherds, so shall all noxious influences be chased away. The LORD will give us rest from disturbers and destroyers; the evil beasts shall cease out of the land. O LORD, make this Thy promise good even now! The LORD’s people are to enjoy security in places of the greatest exposure: wilderness and woods are to be as pastures and folds to the flock of Christ. If the LORD does not change the place for the better, He will make us the better in the place. The wilderness is not a place to dwell in, but the LORD can make it so; in the woods one feels hound to watch rather than to sleep, and yet the LORD giveth His beloved sleep even there. Nothing without or within should cause any fear to the child of God. By faith the wilderness can become the suburbs of heaven and the woods the vestibule of glory.

Is it well with thy husband? Is it well with the child? And she answered, It is well (2 Kings 4:26).
Be strong, my soul!
Thy loved ones go
Within the veil.
God’s thine, e’en so;
Be strong.
Be strong, my soul!
Death looms in view.
Lo, here thy God!
He’ll bear thee through;
Be strong.
For sixty-two years and five months I had a beloved wife, and now, in my ninety-second year I am left alone. But I turn to the ever present Jesus, as I walk up and down in my room, and say, “Lord Jesus, I am alone, and yet not alone–Thou art with me, Thou art my Friend. Now, Lord, comfort me, strengthen me, give to Thy poor servant everything Thou seest he needs.”
And we should not be satisfied till we are brought to this, that we know the Lord Jesus Christ experimentally, habitually to be our Friend: at all times, and under all circumstances, ready to prove Himself to be our Friend.
–George Mueller
Afflictions cannot injure when blended with submission.
Ice breaks many a branch, and so I see a great many persons bowed down and crushed by their afflictions. But now and then I meet one that sings in affliction, and then I thank God for my own sake as well as his. There is no such sweet singing as a song in the night. You recollect the story of the woman who, when her only child died, in rapture looking up, as with the face of an angel, said, “I give you joy, my darling.” That single sentence has gone with me years and years down through my life, quickening and comforting me.
–Henry Ward Beecher
E’en for the dead I will not bind my soul to grief;
Death cannot long divide.
For is it not as though the rose that climbed my garden wall
Has blossomed on the other, side?
Death doth hide,
But not divide;
Thou art but on Christ’s other side!
Thou art with Christ, and Christ with me;
In Christ united still are we.

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

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.

March 5

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.

“Roll on Jehovah thy way” (Ps. 37:6, margin).

Whatever it is that presses thee, go tell the Father; put the whole matter over into His hand, and so shalt thou be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yes, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet, diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.
R. Leighton

Build a little fence of trust
Around today;
Fill the space with loving work
And therein stay.

Look not through the sheltering bars
Upon tomorrow;

We shall find it impossible to commit our way unto the Lord, unless it be a way that He approves. It is only by faith that a man can commit his way unto the Lord; if there be the slightest doubt in the heart that “our way” is not a good one, faith will refuse to have anything to do with it. This committing of our way must be a continuous, not a single act. However extraordinary and unexpected may seem to be His guidance, however near the precipice He may take you, you are not to snatch the guiding reins out of His hands.

Are we willing to have all our ways submitted to God, for Him to pronounce judgment on them? There is nothing a Christian needs to be more scrutinizing about than about his confirmed habits and views. He is too apt to take for granted the Divine approbation of them. Why are some Christians so anxious, so fearful? Evidently because they have not left their way with the Lord. They took it to Him, but brought it away with them again.

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 cannot grow without this!

BIBLE MEDITATION:
For after that, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God, by the foolishness of preaching, to save them that believe. 
1 Corinthians 1:21
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Before God created man, He already knew we could never know Him just by our own wisdom. However smart we think we are, our intellect can never fully reveal God to us. He must reveal to us who He is. And the way He has chosen to do this is through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and through His Word.
Therefore, the Word of God is indispensable.
  • It’s indispensable for salvation. We are conceived by it. We’re “born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.” 1 Peter 1:23
  • The Word of God is indispensable for sanctification. We are cleansed by it. “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren.” 1 Peter 1:22
  • The Word of God is indispensable for sustenance. We are completed by it. “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst” John 6:35
How important is the Word?
For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
The Word of God is living, dynamic, and cuts through the noise and clamor to reveal the truth in our hearts. It’s crucial for your salvation, sanctification and sustenance.
ACTION POINT:
Do you want to grow? Do you want to be a person of strength, steadfast in your faith? Then you must get into the Word of God.

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.”

December 03
Our Holiest Example!
“I have set the LORD always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved”  
(Psalm 16:8).
This is the way to live. With God always before us, we shall have the noblest companionship, the holiest example, the sweetest consolation, and the mightiest influence. This must be a resolute act of the mind. “I have set,” and it must be maintained as a set and settled thing. Always to have an eye to the LORD’s eye and an ear for the LORD’s voice–this is the right state for the godly man. His God is near him, filling the horizon of his vision, leading the way of his life, and furnishing the theme of his meditation. What vanities we should avoid, what sins we should overcome, what virtues we should exhibit, what joys we should experience if we did indeed set the LORD always before us! Why not? This is the way to be safe. The LORD being ever in our minds, we come to feel safety and certainty because of His being so near. He is at our right hand to guide and aid us; and hence we are not moved by fear, nor force, nor fraud, nor fickleness. When God stands at a man’s right hand, that man is himself sure to stand. Come on, then, ye foemen of the truth! Rush against me like a furious tempest, if ye will. God upholds me. God abides with me. Whom shall I fear?

Perfect through suffering!
(Hebrews 2:10).
Steel is iron plus fire. Soil is rock, plus heat, or glacier crushing. Linen is flax plus the bath that cleans, the comb that separates, and the flail that pounds, and the shuttle that weaves. Human character must have a plus attached to it. The world does not forget great characters. But great characters are not made of luxuries, they are made by suffering.
I heard of a mother who brought into her home as a companion to her own son, a crippled boy who was also a hunchback. She had warned her boy to be very careful in his relations to him, and not to touch the sensitive part of his life but go right on playing with him as if he were an ordinary boy. She listened to her son as they were playing; and after a few minutes he said to his companion: “Do you know what you have got on your back?” The little hunchback was embarrassed, and he hesitated a moment. The boy said: “It is the box in which your wings are; and some day God is going to cut it open, and then you will fly away and be an angel.”
Some day, God is going to reveal the fact to every Christian, that the very principles they now rebel against, have been the instruments which He used in perfecting their characters and moulding them into perfection, polished stones for His great building yonder.
–Cortland Myers
Suffering is a wonderful fertilizer to the roots of character. The great object of this life is character. This is the only thing we can carry with us into eternity… To gain the most of it and the best of it is the object of probation.
–Austin Phelps
“By the thorn road and no other is the mount of vision won.”

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

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.

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.

“Roll on Jehovah thy way” (Ps. 37:6, margin).

Whatever it is that presses thee, go tell the Father; put the whole matter over into His hand, and so shalt thou be freed from that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of. When thou art either to do or suffer anything, when thou art about any purpose or business, go tell God of it, and acquaint Him with it; yes, burden Him with it, and thou hast done for matter of caring; no more care, but quiet, sweet, diligence in thy duty, and dependence on Him for the carriage of thy matters. Roll thy cares, and thyself with them, as one burden, all on thy God.
R. Leighton

Build a little fence of trust
Around today;
Fill the space with loving work
And therein stay.

Look not through the sheltering bars
Upon tomorrow;

Of joy or sorrow.

We shall find it impossible to commit our way unto the Lord, unless it be a way that He approves. It is only by faith that a man can commit his way unto the Lord; if there be the slightest doubt in the heart that “our way” is not a good one, faith will refuse to have anything to do with it. This committing of our way must be a continuous, not a single act. However extraordinary and unexpected may seem to be His guidance, however near the precipice He may take you, you are not to snatch the guiding reins out of His hands.

Are we willing to have all our ways submitted to God, for Him to pronounce judgment on them? There is nothing a Christian needs to be more scrutinizing about than about his confirmed habits and views. He is too apt to take for granted the Divine approbation of them. Why are some Christians so anxious, so fearful? Evidently because they have not left their way with the Lord. They took it to Him, but brought it away with them again.

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!
