The following song/video, by Aaron Shust, helped me to rejoice in the existence of Israel and helped me to bow, with thanksgiving, before Israel’s God, our God, by faith in Messiah Jesus.

Here is the link to the video.  As you watch it, may you be moved, even more, to worship our promise-keeping God.

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

Are you helping the cause of Christ?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Romans 10:14
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
You are either a helper or a hurter when it comes to reaching the world for Christ. Why? Because, like “Big Brother,” the world is watching your Sunday-go-to-church behavior and how it compares to your behavior the rest of the week.
Do they see you giving your time and resources to help them when they’re hurting? Do they witness how you treat your family? Or how you entertain your friends? Or do you even know their names?
ACTION POINT:
The greatest argument for Christ and the greatest argument against Christ is the life of a Christian. Hymn writer Philip P. Bliss penned, “Let the lower lights be burning! Send a gleam across the wave! Some poor fainting struggling seaman You may rescue, you may save.”
==============================================
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.”

Plead His Own Promise
“Thou, O LORD God, hast spoken it: and with Thy blessing let the house of Thy servant be blessed for ever”  
(2 Samuel 7:29).
This is a promise pleaded, and so it yields double instruction to us. Anything which the LORD God has spoken we should receive as surely true and then plead it at the throne. Oh, how sweet to quote what our own God has spoken! How precious to use a “therefore,” which the promise suggests, as David does in this verse! We do not pray because we doubt but because we believe. To pray unbelievingly is unbecoming in the LORD’s children. No, LORD, we cannot doubt Thee: we are persuaded that every word of Thine is a sure foundation for the boldest expectation. We come to Thee and say, “Do as Thou hast said.” Bless Thy servant’s house. Heal our sick; save our hesitating ones; restore those who wander; confirm those who live in Thy fear. LORD, give us food and raiment according to Thy Word. Prosper our undertakings; especially succeed our endeavors to make known Thy gospel in our neighborhood. Make our servants Thy servants, our children Thy children. Let the blessing flow on to future generations, and as long as any of our race remains on earth may they remain true to Thee. O LORD God, “let the house of thy servant be blessed.”

Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside, of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush” (Exod. 3:1,2).
The vision came in the midst of common toil, and that is where the Lord delights to give His revelations. He seeks a man who is on the ordinary road, and the Divine fire leaps out at his feet. The mystic ladder can rise from the market place to Heaven. It can connect the realm of drudgery with the realms of grace.
My Father God, help me to expect Thee on the ordinary road. I do not ask for sensational happenings. Commune with me through ordinary work and duty. Be my Companion when I take the common journey. Let the humble life be transfigured by Thy presence.
Some Christians think they must be always up to mounts of extraordinary joy and revelation; this is not after God’s method. Those spiritual visits to high places, and that wonderful intercourse with the unseen world, are not in the promises; the daily life of communion is. And it is enough. We shall have the exceptional revelation if it be right for us.
There were but three disciples allowed to see the transfiguration, and those three entered the gloom of Gethsemane. No one can stay on the mount of privilege. There are duties in the valley. Christ found His life-work, not in the glory, but in the valley and was there truly and fully the Messiah.
The value of the vision and glory is but their gift of fitness for work and endurance.

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

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

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

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

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

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

 

and to us:

 

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

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

or Reject Him.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

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

 

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

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

Morning …

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

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

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

God and Churchill

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

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

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

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

The Great Commission!

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

Prayer defeats every sin!

BIBLE MEDITATION:
In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of Him.
 Ephesians 3:12
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
One of the grandest privileges you and I have is the privilege of prayer. I believe when we get to heaven, one of the things that will amaze us is that we prayed so poorly, and we prayed so little, while we were here on earth.
I want to tell you: you do not have a failure in your life but what it is a prayer failure. You do not have a need in your life but what prayer could supply that need. There’s not a sin in your life that a proper prayer life couldn’t overcome.
Hymn writer Joseph M. Scriven penned these words,
“O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer.”
ACTION POINT:
Friend, rather than wringing our hands, we ought to be bending our knees.
==============================================
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’s Multiplication Table
“A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time”  
(Isaiah 60:22).
Works for the LORD often begin on a small scale, and they are none the worse for this. Feebleness educates faith, brings God near, and wins glory for His name. Prize promises of increase! Mustard seed is the smallest among seeds, and yet it becomes a treelike plant, with branches which lodge the birds of heaven. We may begin with one, and that “a little one,” and yet it will “become a thousand.” The LORD is great at the multiplication table. How often did He say to His lone servant, “I will multiply thee!” Trust in the LORD, ye ones and twos; for He will be in the midst of you if you are gathered in His name. “A small one.” What can be more despicable in the eyes of those who count heads and weigh forces! Yet this is the nucleus of a great nation. Only one star shines out at first in the evening, but soon the sky is crowded with countless lights. Nor need we think the prospect of increase to be remote, for the promise is, “I Jehovah will hasten it in his time.” There will be no premature haste, like that which we see at excited meetings; it will be all in due time, but yet there will be no delay. When the LORD hastens, His speed is glorious.

 

OCTOBER 22

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens (2 Cor. 5:1).
The owner of the tenement which I have occupied for many years has given notice that he will furnish but little or nothing more for repairs. I am advised to be ready to move.
At first this was not a very welcome notice. The surroundings here are in many respects very pleasant, and were it not for the evidence of decay, I should consider the house good enough. But even a light wind causes it to tremble and totter, and all the braces are not sufficient to make it secure. So I am getting ready to move.
It is strange how quickly one’s interest is transferred to the prospective home. I have been consulting maps of the new country and reading descriptions of its inhabitants. One who visited it has returned, and from him I learn that it is beautiful beyond description; language breaks down in attempting to tell of what he heard while there. He says that, in order to make an investment there, he has suffered the loss of all things that he owned here, and even rejoices in what others would call making a sacrifice. Another, whose love to me has been proven by the greatest possible test, is now there. He has sent me several clusters of the most delicious fruits. After tasting them, all food here seems insipid.
Two or three times I have been down by the border of the river that forms the boundary, and have wished myself among the company of those who were singing praises to the King on the other side. Many of my friends have moved there. Before leaving they spoke of my coming later. I have seen the smile upon their faces as they passed out of sight. Often I am asked to make some new investments here, but my answer in every case is, “I am getting ready to move.”
–Selected
The words often on Jesus’ lips in His last days express vividly the idea, “going to the Father.” We, too, who are Christ’s people, have vision of something beyond the difficulties and disappointments of this life. We are journeying towards fulfillment, completion, expansion of life. We, too, are “going to the Father.” Much is dim concerning our home-country, but two things are clear. It is home, “the Father’s House.” It is the nearer presence of the Lord. We are all wayfarers, but the believer knows it and accepts it. He is a traveller, not a settler.
–R. C. Gillie
The little birds trust God, for they go singing
From northern woods where autumn winds have blown,
With joyous faith their trackless pathway winging
To summer-lands of song, afar, unknown.
Let us go singing, then, and not go sighing:
Since we are sure our times are in His hand,
Why should we weep, and fear, and call it dying?
‘Tis only flitting to a Summer-land.

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

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

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

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

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

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

 

and to us:

 

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

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

or Reject Him.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

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

 

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

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

Morning …

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

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

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

God and Churchill

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

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

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

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

The Great Commission!

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

Do you feel “fogged in”?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
Psalm 116:5
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Imagine you’re in a plane, ready for take-off on the runway. The pilot comes on the intercom and announces there’s a delay due to fog. You glance out your window. It looks so gloomy and dark. You wonder if the sun is shining.
The fog lifts enough for the control tower to give the green light, and the plane takes off. It’s still cloudy, but the plane starts climbing, climbing, climbing. Suddenly, the plane bursts through the clouds, and it is so gloriously bright that you have to blink your eyes. Now, you realize the sun has been there all the time.
That’s the way it is with Jehovah God, the Son of righteousness with healing in His wings (see Malachi 4:2-3). He is always loving, always giving. He is waiting for you to see Him now.
ACTION POINT:
Invite the Holy Spirit to show you today the true condition of the sky—above the clouds. Open your heart to His presence and let Him speak to you about what is really there beyond the fog. Things are not always what they seem. And God has His hand upon you.
==============================================
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.”

From Every Sin
“He shall save His people from their sins”  
(Matthew 1:21).
LORD, save me from my sins. By the name of Jesus I am encouraged thus to pray. Save me from my past sins, that the habit of them may not hold me captive. Save me from my constitutional sins, that I may not be the slave of my own weaknesses. Save me from the sins which are continually under my eye that I may not lose my horror of them. Save me from secret sins; sins unperceived by me from my want of light. Save me from sudden and surprising sins: let me not be carried off my feet by a rush of temptation. Save me, LORD, from every sin. Let not any iniquity have dominion over me. hou alone canst do this. I cannot snap my own chains or slay my own enemies. Thou knowest temptation, for Thou wast tempted. Thou knowest sin, for Thou didst bear the weight of it. Thou knowest how to succor me in my hour of conflict; Thou canst save me from sinning and save me when I have sinned. It is promised in Thy very name that Thou wilt do this, and I pray Thee let me this day verify the prophecy. Let me not give way to temper, or pride, or despondency, or any form of evil; but do Thou save me unto holiness of life, that the name of Jesus may be glorified in me abundantly.

“And the peace of God, which transcends all our powers of thought, will be a garrison to guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus”
(Phil. 4:7)
There is what is called the “cushion of the sea.” Down beneath the surface that is agitated by storms, and driven about with winds, there is a part of the sea that is never stirred. When we dredge the bottom and bring up the remains of animal and vegetable life we find that they give evidence of not having been disturbed in the least, for hundreds and thousands of years. The peace of God is that eternal calm which, like the cushion of the sea, lies far too deep down to be reached by any external trouble and disturbance; and he who enters into the presence of God, becomes partaker of that undisturbed and undisturbable calm.
–Dr. A. T. Pierson
When winds are raging o’er the upper ocean,
And billows wild contend with angry roar,
‘Tis said, far down beneath the wild commotion,
That peaceful stillness reigneth evermore.
Far, far beneath, the noise of tempest dieth,
And silver waves chime ever peacefully,
And no rude storm, how fierce soe’er it flieth,
Disturbs the Sabbath of that deeper sea.
So to the heart that knows Thy love, O Purest,
There is a temple sacred evermore,
And all the babble of life’s angry voices
Dies in hushed silence at its peaceful door.
Far, far away, the roar of passion dieth,
And loving thoughts rise calm and peacefully,
And no rude storm, how fierce soe’er it flieth,
Disturbs the soul that dwells, O Lord, in Thee.

–Harriet Beecher Stowe
“The Pilgrim they laid in a large upper chamber, facing the sun-rising. The name of the chamber was Peace.”
–Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

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

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

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

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

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

 

and to us:

 

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

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

or Reject Him.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

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

 

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

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

Morning …

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

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

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

God and Churchill

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

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

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

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

The Great Commission!

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

Do you want to tell God how to do things?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear Him, and keep His commandments, and obey His voice, and ye shall serve Him, and cleave unto Him.
Deuteronomy 13:4
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
When we read a command in the Bible, whether we understand it or not, we ought to obey it. The Bible is not first and foremost a book to be explained, it is a book to be believed and obeyed.
So many times we want to tell God how He ought to do things. I can imagine some early apostles when they first met Saul persecuting believers—those well-meaning Christians could have been praying for God to strike him dead. But what did God do? He struck Paul alive! And aren’t you glad He did?
ACTION POINT:
Don’t substitute your human reasoning for obedience. You say, “Well, this or that seems so reasonable to me.” God says, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8-9). This will test your faith, but you must trust that He has the higher ways and the better plan.
==============================================
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.”

Regulated Chastisement
“I will correct thee in measure” 

(Jeremiah 30:11)

To be left uncorrected would be a fatal sign: it would prove that the LORD had said, “He is given unto idols, let him alone.” God grant that such may never be our portion! Uninterrupted prosperity is a thing to cause fear and trembling. As many as God tenderly loves He rebukes and chastens: those for whom He has no esteem He allows to fatten themselves without fear, like bullocks for the slaughter. It is in love that our heavenly Father uses the rod upon His children. Yet see, the correction is in measure”: He gives us love without measure but chastisement “in measure.” As under the old law no Israelite could receive more than the “forty stripes save one,” which ensured careful counting and limited suffering; so is it with each afflicted member of the household of faith-every stroke is counted. It is the measure of wisdom, the measure of sympathy, the measure of love, by which our chastisement is regulated. Far be it from us to rebel against appointments so divine. LORD, if Thou standest by to measure the bitter drops into my cup, it is for me cheerfully to take that cup from Thy hand and drink according to Thy directions, saying, “Thy will be done.”

 

OCTOBER 20

“The ark of the covenant of the Lord went before them” (Num. 10:33).
God does give us impressions, but not that we should act on them as impressions. If the impression be from God, He will Himself give sufficient evidence to establish it beyond the possibility of a doubt.
How beautiful is the story of Jeremiah, of the impression that came to him respecting the purchase of the field of Anathoth. But Jeremiah did not act upon this impression until after the following day, when his uncle’s son came to him and brought him external evidence by making a proposal for the purchase. Then Jeremiah said: “I knew this was the word of the Lord.”
He waited until God seconded the impression by a providence, and then he acted in full view of the open facts, which could bring conviction unto others as well as to himself. God wants us to act according to His mind. We are not to ignore the Shepherd’s personal voice but, like Paul and his companions at Troas, we are to listen to all the voices that speak and “gather” from all the circumstances, as they did, the full mind of the Lord.
–Dr. Simpson
“Where God’s finger points, there God’s hand will make the way.”
Do not say in thine heart what thou wilt or wilt not do, but wait upon God until He makes known His way. So long as that way is hidden it is clear that there is no need of action, and that He accounts Himself responsible for all the results of keeping thee where thou art.
–Selected
“For God through ways we have not known,
Will lead His own.”

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

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

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

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

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

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

 

and to us:

 

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

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

or Reject Him.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

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

 

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

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

Morning …

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

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

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

God and Churchill

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

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

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

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

The Great Commission!

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

Do dark shadows frighten you?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth.
Psalm 145:18
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Psalm 23 speaks of the “valley of the shadow of death.” For every shadow, there must be light. Jesus Christ said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12). A shadow may frighten you, but a shadow cannot really hurt you.
I dare say that a shadow at one time or another has spooked most of us. But thank God, death is but a shadow—if you know the Lord Jesus Christ. If you keep your face toward the light, the shadow will fall behind you. You won’t even see the shadow. God doesn’t bring us to a valley to leave us there. He always brings us through.
ACTION POINT:
God is never closer than when we’re in a dark valley. That’s when He is especially near. In the original language, we’re told Hebrews 13:5 actually has five negatives! A literal translation of it would be: “I will never, no, not ever, never leave you nor forsake you.” Memorize this short, treasured verse today.
==============================================
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.”

Tears, Then Joyful Harvest
“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy”   (Psalm 126:5).

Weeping times are suitable for sowing: we do not want the ground to be too dry. Seed steeped in the tears of earnest anxiety will come up all the sooner. The salt of prayerful tears will give the good seed a flavor which will preserve it from the worm: truth spoken in awful earnestness has a double life about it. Instead of stopping our sowing because of our weeping, let us redouble our efforts because the season is so propitious. Our heavenly seed could not fitly be sown laughing. Deep sorrow and concern for the souls of others are a far more fit accompaniment of godly teaching than anything like levity. We have heard of men who went to war with a light heart, but they were beaten; and it is mostly so with those who sow in the same style. Come, then, my heart, sow on in thy weeping, for thou has the promise of a joyful harvest. Thou shalt reap. Thou, thyself, shalt see some results of thy labor. This shall come to thee in so large a measure as to give thee joy, which a poor, withered, and scanty harvest would not do. When thine eyes are dim with silver tears, think of the golden corn. Bear cheerfully the present toil and disappointment; for the harvest day will fully recompense thee.

 

OCTOBER 19

“Know of a surety that thy seed shall be sojourners in a land that is not theirs; . . . they shall afflict them four hundred years; . . . and afterward they shall come out with great substance”

(Genesis 5:12-14).

An assured part of God’s pledged blessing to us is delay and suffering. A delay in Abram’s own lifetime that seemed to put God’s pledge beyond fulfillment was followed by seemingly unendurable delay of Abram’s descendants. But it was only a delay: they “came out with great substance.” The pledge was redeemed.

God is going to test me with delays; and with the delays will come suffering, but through it all stands God’s pledge: His new covenant with me in Christ, and His inviolable promise of every lesser blessing that I need. The delay and the suffering are part of the promised blessing; let me praise Him for them today; and let me wait on the Lord and be of good courage and He will strengthen my heart.
–C. G. Trumbull

Unanswered yet the prayer your lips have pleaded
In agony of heart these many years?
Does faith begin to fail? Is hope departing?
And think you all in vain those falling tears?
Say not the Father hath not heard your prayer;
You shall have your desire sometime, somewhere.

Unanswered yet? Nay do not say ungranted;
Perhaps your work is not yet wholly done.
The work began when first your prayer was uttered,
And God will finish what He has begun.
If you will keep the incense burning there,
His glory you shall see sometime, somewhere.

Unanswered yet? Faith cannot be unanswered,
Her feet are firmly planted on the Rock;
Amid the wildest storms she stands undaunted,
Nor quails before the loudest thunder shock.
She knows Omnipotence has heard her prayer,
And cries, “It shall be done”–sometime, somewhere.

–Miss Ophelia G. Browning

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

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

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

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

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

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

 

and to us:

 

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

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

or Reject Him.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

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

 

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

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

Morning …

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

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

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

God and Churchill

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

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

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

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

The Great Commission!

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

Do we have a jealous God?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
Exodus 34:14
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
When this verse says that God is a jealous God, that may sound like a bad attribute. But for God, it is a holy attribute. You see, I have no right to be jealous of another preacher because I am not the only preacher in the world. For a singer to be jealous of another singer would be a wrong attitude, because there are many singers. One singer doesn’t own all the singing in the world. There is room for many singers. For an athlete to be jealous of another athlete is wrong, because he doesn’t own athletics. But there’s only one God.
Therefore, He has every right to own the worship, adoration and praise that has come to him. He deserves it.
Put yourself in God’s place for a moment. You’re the one who made heaven and earth. Then imagine people worshiping a frog or a beetle or money or sports or family or their own intellect or denomination or church. Then you’d understand why the Bible says, ““I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me” (Exodus 20:2-3).
And when Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was, He replied, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” (Matthew 22:37).
ACTION POINT:
When you die to self and worship God, you will begin to experience the fullness of God in a way that transforms your 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.”

Holy Fear
“He that feareth the Commandment shall be rewarded”  
(Proverbs 13:13).
Holy awe of God’s Word is at a great discount. Men think themselves wiser than the Word of the LORD and sit in judgment upon it. “So did not I, because of the fear of God.” We accept the inspired Book as infallible and prove our esteem by our obedience. We have no terror of the Word, but we have a filial awe of it. We are not in fear of its penalties because we have a fear of its commands. This holy fear of the commandment produces the restfulness of humility, which is far sweeter than the recklessness of pride. It becomes a guide to us in our movements: a drag when we are going downhill and a stimulus when we are climbing it. Preserved from evil and led into righteousness by our reverence of the command, we gain a quiet conscience, which is a well of wine; a sense of freedom from responsibility, which is as life from the dead; and a confidence of pleasing God, which is heaven below. The ungodly may ridicule our deep reverence for the Word of the LORD; but what of that?. The prize of our high calling is a sufficient consolation for us. The rewards of obedience make us scorn the scorning of the scorner.

“God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world”
(Gal. 6:14).
They were living to themselves; self with its hopes, and promises and dreams, still had hold of them; but the Lord began to fulfill their prayers. They had asked for contrition, and had surrendered for it to be given them at any cost, and He sent them sorrow; they had asked for purity, and He sent them thrilling anguish; they had asked to be meek, and He had broken their hearts; they had asked to be dead to the world, and He slew all their living hopes; they had asked to be made like unto Him, and He placed them in the furnace, sitting by “as a refiner and purifier of silver,” until they should reflect His image; they had asked to lay hold of His cross, and when He had reached it to them it lacerated their hands.
They had asked they knew not what, nor how, but He had taken them at their word, and granted them all their petitions. They were hardly willing to follow Him so far, or to draw so nigh to Him. They had upon them an awe and fear, as Jacob at Bethel, or Eliphaz in the night visions, or as the apostles when they thought that they had seen a spirit, and knew not that it was Jesus. They could almost pray Him to depart from them, or to hide His awfulness. They found it easier to obey than to suffer, to do than to give up, to bear the cross than to hang upon it. But they cannot go back, for they have come too near the unseen cross, and its virtues have pierced too deeply within them. He is fulfilling to them His promise, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32).
But now at last their turn has come. Before, they had only heard of the mystery, but now they feel it. He has fastened on them His look of love, as He did on Mary and Peter, and they can but choose to follow.
Little by little, from time to time, by flitting gleams, the mystery of His cross shines out upon them. They behold Him lifted up, they gaze on the glory which rays from the wounds of His holy passion; and as they gaze they advance, and are changed into His likeness, and His name shines out through them, for He dwells in them. They live alone with Him above, in unspeakable fellowship; willing to lack what others own (and what they might have had), and to be unlike all, so that they are only like Him.
Such, are they in all ages, “who follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth.”
Had they chosen for themselves, or their friends chosen for them, they would have chosen otherwise. They would have been brighter here, but less glorious in His Kingdom. They would have had Lot’s portion, not Abraham’s. If they had halted anywhere–if God had taken off His hand and let them stray back — what would they not have lost? What forfeits in the resurrection? But He stayed them up, even against themselves. Many a time their foot had well nigh slipped; but He in mercy held them up. Now, even in this life, they know that all He did was done well. It was good to suffer here, that they might reign hereafter; to bear the cross below, for they shall wear the crown above; and that not their will but His was done on them and in them.

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

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

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

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

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

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

 

and to us:

 

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

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

or Reject Him.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

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

 

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

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

Morning …

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

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

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

God and Churchill

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

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

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

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

The Great Commission!

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

Are God’s laws a burden to you?

 

BIBLE MEDITATION:
Let Thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for Thy law is my delight.
Psalm 119:77
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
How does God unite a law book with a song book? I’ll tell you how. With liberty and harmony. God never intended His laws to be burdensome. He meant for them to be a blessing.
A piano operates according to laws. When a person masters those laws, the drudgery of learning turns to delight. Piano practice enables a person to sit at the piano in perfect liberty and let the melody dance off the ivory keys
Isn’t it marvelous how God turns statutes into songs and how law books can become songbooks? When you learn authority and submit to authority, at that same moment you learn perfect freedom. As Ethel Waters used to sing, “I sing because I’m happy. I sing because I’m free….” There’s liberty in God’s law.
ACTION POINT:
Every law has a song written on the back of it. And you will discover this when you obey God’s laws. Have you yielded yourself to the Lordship of Christ? “Duty” will turn to delight.
==============================================
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.”

One with Christ Jesus
“Because I live, ye shall live also”  
(John 14:19).
Jesus has made the life of believers in Him as certain as His own. As sure as the Head lives the members live also. If Jesus has not risen from the dead, then are we dead in our sins; but since He has risen, all believers are risen in Him. His death has put away our transgressions and loosed the bonds which held us under the death sentence. His resurrection proves our justification: we are absolved, and mercy saith, “The LORD hath put away thy sin, thou shalt not die.” Jesus has made the life of His people as eternal as His own. How can they die as long as He lives, seeing they are one with Him? Because He dieth no more, and death hath no more dominion over Him, so they shall no more return to the graves of their old sins but shall live unto the LORD in newness of life. O believer, when, under great temptation, thou fearest that thou shalt one day fall by the hand of the enemy, let this reassure thee. Thou shalt never lose thy spiritual life, for it is hid with Christ in God. Thou dost not doubt the immortality of thy LORD; therefore, do not think that He will let thee die, since thou art one with Him. The argument for thy life is His life, and of that thou canst have no fear; wherefore rest in thy living LORD.

 

OCTOBER 17

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, we must get rid of every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and run with endurance the race set out for us, (Heb 12:1)
There are weights which are not sins in themselves, but which become distractions and stumbling blocks in our Christian progress. One of the worst of these is despondency. The heavy heart is indeed a weight that will surely drag us down in our holiness and usefulness.
The failure of Israel to enter the land of promise began in murmuring, or, as the text in Numbers literally puts it, “as it were murmured.” Just a faint desire to complain and be discontented. This led on until it blossomed and ripened into rebellion and ruin. Let us give ourselves no liberty ever to doubt God or His love and faithfulness to us in everything and forever.
We can set our will against doubt just as we do against any other sin; and as we stand firm and refuse to doubt, the Holy Spirit will come to our aid and give us the faith of God and crown us with victory.
It is very easy to fall into the habit of doubting, fretting, and wondering if God has forsaken us and if after all our hopes are to end in failure. Let us refuse to be discouraged. Let us refuse to be unhappy. Let us “count it all joy” when we cannot feel one emotion of happiness. Let us rejoice by faith, by resolution, by reckoning, and we shall surely find that God will make the reckoning real.
—Selected
The devil has two master tricks. One is to get us discouraged; then for a time at least we can be of no service to others, and so are defeated. The other is to make us doubt, thus breaking the faith link by which we are bound to our Father. Lookout! Do not be tricked either way.
—G.E.M.
Gladness! I like to cultivate the spirit of gladness! It puts the soul so in tune again, and keeps it in tune, so that Satan is shy of touching it—the chords of the soul become too warm, or too full of heavenly electricity, for his infernal fingers, and he goes off somewhere else! Satan is always very shy of meddling with me when my heart is full of gladness and joy in the Holy Ghost.
My plan is to shun the spirit of sadness as I would Satan; but, alas! I am not always successful. Like the devil himself it meets me on the highway of usefulness, looks me so fully in my face, till my poor soul changes color!
Sadness discolors everything; it leaves all objects charmless; it involves future prospects in darkness; it deprives the soul of all its aspirations, enchains all its powers, and produces a mental paralysis!
An old believer remarked, that cheerfulness in religion makes all its services come off with delight; and that we are never carried forward so swiftly in the ways of duty as when borne on the wings of delight; adding, that Melancholy clips such wings; or, to alter the figure, takes off our chariot wheels in duty, and makes them, like those of the Egyptians, drag heavily.

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

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.

Can you ever exhaust God’s compassion?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Do you know what Lamentations 3:22-23 means? It means that God never runs out of compassion.
Have you ever gone to Niagara Falls and watched the water cascading with torrential force? I’ve thought, “Surely the water is one day going to dry up.” But it hasn’t. Friend, greater than Niagara is the compassion of the Lord. His compassions fail not.
In 1923, Thomas O. Chisholm wrote one of the greatest hymns of all time and this stanza is the refrain of this truth, “Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father; There is no shadow of turning with Thee; Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not; As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.”
ACTION POINT:
God is faithful. What are you facing today? Dear friend, lean upon Him and His faithfulness. He will never, no never, leave you, nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).
==============================================
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.”

Sustained by Feeding
“As the living Father hath sent Me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by Me”   (John 6:57).
We live by virtue of our union with the Son of God. As God-man Mediator, the LORD Jesus lives by the self-existent Father who has sent Him, and in the same manner we live by the Savior who has quickened us. He who is the source of our life is also the sustenance of it. Living is sustained by feeding. We must support the spiritual life by spiritual food, and that spiritual food is the LORD Jesus. Not His life, or death, or offices, or work, or word alone, but Himself, as including all these. On Jesus Himself we feed. This is set forth to us in the LORD’s Supper, but it is actually enjoyed by us when we meditate upon our LORD, believe in Him with appropriating faith, take Him into ourselves by love, and assimilate Him by the power of the inner life. We know what it is to feed on Jesus, but we cannot speak it or write it. Our wisest course is to practice it and to do so more and more. We are entreated to eat abundantly, and it will be to our infinite profit to do so when Jesus is our meat and our drink. LORD, I thank Thee that this, which is a necessity of my new life, is also its greatest delight. So, I do at this hour feed on Thee.

When it rises up, the mighty are terrified, at its thrashing about they withdraw. (Job 41:25)
God uses most for His glory those people and things which are most perfectly broken. The sacrifices He accepts are broken and contrite hearts. It was the breaking down of Jacob’s natural strength at Peniel that got him where God could clothe him with spiritual power. It was breaking the surface of the rock at Horeb, by the stroke of Moses’ rod that let out the cool waters to thirsty people.
It was when the 300 elect soldiers under Gideon broke their pitchers, a type of breaking themselves, that the hidden lights shone forth to the consternation of their adversaries. It was when the poor widow broke the seal of the little pot of oil, and poured it forth, that God multiplied it to pay her debts and supply means of support.
It was when Esther risked her life and broke through the rigid etiquette of a heathen court, that she obtained favor to rescue her people from death. It was when Jesus took the five loaves and broke them, that the bread was multiplied in the very act of breaking, sufficient to feed five thousand. It was when Mary broke her beautiful alabaster box, rendering it henceforth useless, that the pent-up perfume filled the house. It was when Jesus allowed His precious body to be broken to pieces by thorns and nails and spear, that His inner life was poured out, like a crystal ocean, for thirsty sinners to drink and live.
It is when a beautiful grain of corn is broken up in the earth by DEATH, that its inner heart sprouts forth and bears hundreds of other grains. And thus, on and on, through all history, and all biography, and all vegetation, and all spiritual life, God must have BROKEN THINGS.
Those who are broken in wealth, and broken in self-will, and broken in their ambitions, and broken in their beautiful ideals, and broken in worldly reputation, and broken in their affections, and broken ofttimes in health; those who are despised and seem utterly forlorn and helpless, the Holy Ghost is seizing upon, and using for God’s glory. “The lame take the prey,” Isaiah tells us.
O break my heart; but break it as a field 
Is by the plough up-broken for the corn;
O break it as the buds, by green leaf seated, +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Are, to unloose the golden blossom, torn;
Love would I offer unto Love’s great Master,
Set free the odor, break the alabaster.
O break my heart; break it victorious God, 
That life’s eternal well may flash abroad;
O let it break as when the captive trees, 
Breaking cold bonds, regain their liberties;
And as thought’s sacred grove to life is springing,
Be joys, like birds, their hope, Thy victory singing.
—Thomas Toke Bunch

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

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

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

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

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

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

 

and to us:

 

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

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

or Reject Him.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

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

 

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

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

Morning …

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

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

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

God and Churchill

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

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

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

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

The Great Commission!

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

The victory He won was for you!

BIBLE MEDITATION:

But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

The church is not an organization with Jesus Christ as its president. The church is an organism with Jesus Christ as its head. We are in Him and He is in us. The victory He won on the cross was for us.
When Jesus went to the cross, He wasn’t fighting the battle for Himself. He didn’t need to overcome Satan. He fought it on your behalf. He made the transaction, often called “the divine exchange”:
  • Jesus became the Son of man that you might become a son of God.
  • He took your sins that you might take His innocence.
  • He became guilty that you might become acquitted.
  • He was filled with despair that you might be filled with joy.
  • He took your shame that you might take His glory.
  • He suffered the pains of hell, that you might know the joys of heaven.

ACTION POINT:

“What language shall I borrow to thank Thee, dearest Friend,
For this Thy dying sorrow, Thy pity without end?
O make me Thine forever, and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never outlive my love for Thee.”
==============================================
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.”

Never Ashamed
“Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in Heaven”   (Matthew 10:32).

Gracious promise! It is a great joy to me to confess my LORD. Whatever my faults may be, I am not ashamed of Jesus, nor do I fear to declare the doctrines of His cross. O LORD, I have not hid Thy righteousness within my heart. Sweet is the prospect which the text sets before me! Friends forsake and enemies exult, but the LORD does not disown His servant. Doubtless my LORD will own me even here and give me new tokens of His favorable regard. But there comes a day when I must stand before the great Father. What bliss to think that Jesus will confess me then! He will say, “This man truly trusted Me and was willing to be reproached for My name’s sake; and therefore I acknowledge him as Mine.” The other day a great man was made a knight, and the Queen handed him a jeweled garter; but what of that? It will be an honor beyond all honors for the LORD Jesus to confess us in the presence of the divine Majesty in the heavens. Never let me be ashamed to own my LORD. Never let me indulge a cowardly silence or allow a fainthearted compromise. Shall I blush to own Him who promises to own me?

Difficulty Is the Very Atmosphere of Miracle!
The angel of the Lord came upon him (Peter) and a light shined in the prison; and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off (Acts 12:7).
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God… And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and every one’s bands were loosed (Acts 16:25-26).
This is God’s way. In the darkest hours of the night, His tread draws near across the billows. As the day of execution is breaking, the angel comes to Peter’s cell. When the scaffold for Mordecai is complete, the royal sleeplessness leads to a reaction in favor of the favored race.
Ah, soul, it may have to come to the worst with thee ere thou art delivered; but thou wilt be delivered! God may keep thee waiting, but he will ever be mindful of His covenant, and will appear to fulfill His inviolable Word.
–F. B. Meyer
There’s a simplicity about God in working out His plans, yet a resourcefulness equal to any difficulty, and an unswerving faithfulness to His trusting child, and an unforgetting steadiness in holding to His purpose. Through a fellow-prisoner, then a dream, He lifts Joseph from a prison to a premiership. And the length of stay in the prison prevents dizziness in the premier. It’s safe to trust God’s methods and to go by His clock.
–S. D. Gordon
Providence hath a thousand keys to open a thousand sundry doors for the deliverance of His own, when it is even come to a desperate case. Let us be faithful; and care for our own part which is to suffer for Him, and lay Christ’s part on Himself, and leave it there.
–George MacDonald
Difficulty is the very atmosphere of miracle — it is miracle in its first stage. If it is to be a great miracle, the condition is not difficulty but impossibility.++++++++++++++++
The clinging hand of His child makes a desperate situation a delight to Him.

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

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

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

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

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

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

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

 

and to us:

 

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

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

or Reject Him.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

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

 

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

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

Morning …

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

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

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

God and Churchill

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

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

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

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

The Great Commission!

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

Do you need a recipe for a miracle?
BIBLE MEDITATION:
I love the Lord, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live.
Psalm 116:1-2
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Here’s the recipe for a miracle:
Take a problem
Transfer it to Christ
It will be transformed by Christ.
The ingredient most of us keep missing is transferring the problem to Christ.
ACTION POINT:
Have you given your all to Jesus Christ? This is not just rhetoric. Trying to get as serious and honest as we can within the confines of your daily calendar, the question is: Have you literally given everything to Jesus Christ? If not, do so today and you will begin to see God’s miracle-moving power transform your 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.”

If, and a Triple Promise
“If My people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”  
(2 Chronicles 7:14).
Called by the name of the LORD, we are nevertheless erring men and women. What a mercy it is that our God is ready to forgive! Whenever we sin let us hasten to the mercy seat of our God, seeking pardon. We are to humble ourselves. Should we not be humbled by the fact that after receiving so much love we yet transgress? O LORD, we bow before Thee in the dust and own our grievous ingratitude. Oh, the infamy of sin! Oh, the sevenfold infamy of it in persons so favored as we have been! Next, we are to pray for mercy, for cleansing, for deliverance from the power of sin. O LORD, hear us even now, and shut not out our cry. In this prayer we are to seek the LORD’s face. He has left us because of our faults, and we must entreat Him to return. O LORD, look on us in Thy Son Jesus, and smile upon Thy servants. With this must go our own turning from evil; God cannot turn to us unless we turn from sin. hen comes the triple promise of hearing, pardon, and healing. Our Father, grant us these at once, for our LORD Jesus Christ’s sake.

Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God. (Phil 4:6)
No anxiety ought to be found in a believer. Great, many and varied may be our trials, our afflictions, our difficulties, and yet there should be no anxiety under any circumstances, because we have a Father in Heaven who is almighty, who loves His children as He loves His only-begotten Son, and whose very joy and delight it is to succor and help them at all times and under all circumstances. We should attend to the Word, “In nothing be anxious, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
“In everything,” that is not merely when the house is on fire, not merely when the beloved wife and children are on the brink of the grave, but in the smallest matters of life, bring everything before God, the little things, the very little things, what the world calls trifling things—everything—living in holy communion with our Heavenly Father, arid with our precious Lord Jesus all day long. And when we awake at night, by a kind of spiritual instinct again turning to Him, and speaking to Him, bringing our various little matters before Him in the sleepless night, the difficulties in connection with the family, our trade, our profession. Whatever tries us in any way, speak to the Lord about it.
“By prayer and supplication,” taking the place of beggars, with earnestness, with perseverance, going on and waiting, waiting, waiting on God.
“With thanksgiving.” We should at all times lay a good foundation with thanksgiving. If everything else were wanting, this is always present, that He has saved us from hell. Then, that He has given us His Holy Word—His Son, His choicest gift—and the Holy Spirit. Therefore we have abundant reason for thanksgiving. O let us aim at this!
“And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” And this is so great a blessing, so real a blessing, so precious a blessing, that it must be known experimentally to be entered into, for it passeth understanding. O let us lay these things to heart, and the result will be, if we habitually walk in this spirit, we shall far more abundantly glorify God, than as yet we have done.
—George Mueller, in Life of Trust
Twice or thrice a day, look to see if your heart is not disquieted about something; and if you find that it is, take care forthwith to restore it to calm.
—Francis De Sales

I wanted to be sure that you knew:

That GOD Loves you,

 

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

 

BUT, there’s a Problem:

 

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

 

The entire Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE!

 

And there is only ONE CURE:

 

The disease is SIN (Disobedience to GOD)

 

The Only Cure is Jesus Christ.

 

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

 

and to us:

 

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

 

THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT

 

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Sovereign GOD in Heaven:

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

or Reject Him.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

of GOD. That verse is Revelation 20:15:

 

Revelation 20:15 New International Version (NIV)

 

15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the

 

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

 

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

 

Revelation 20 New International Version (NIV)

 

The Judgment of the Dead

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

in Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.

Morning …

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

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

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

Why I Believe in the Return of Christ

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

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

God and Churchill

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

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

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

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

The Great Commission!

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