Pastor JD Farag
Where are we on the time-line. What’s coming?
News and the scriptures. Encourage one another in these days of chaos.
Praise the One true God!
Dear Jesus, we come before You and praise Your Holy name! The name above all names! We thank You and You alone for everything, even the thinks we may not understand completely right now. BUT, we love You, we trust You, and we exalt your mighty name. Jesus we ask You to watch over all of our brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus all over the world and yes, in Iran and Iraq and China and N Korea. Not just these but in all nations across this world. Dear Father in heaven, we pray that You would watch over our military, our sons and daughters, our mothers and fathers, our nieces and nephews. Our friends and neighbors. Watch over them as they are under attack. We ask that You would give them and our president and each of us Godly wisdom. War is not good or what we want. Sometimes it might be necessary. I trust You and You alone.
In the name above all names, I ask these things, thank You Jesus. Amen
What are we thinking?
As the darkness closes in on Christians it becomes more apparent we must walk in the light. Be filled with the Holy Spirit!
1 Peter 2:9-10 KJV
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
I know that I can’t be alone in my saddness of watching what is happening around me at an unbelievable speed. Daily I am shocked and then I immediately tell myself that nothing shocks me anymore yet it still does. It makes my stomach knot up and I simply don’t even know what to say. “Keep looking up!”
Praise the Lord God Almighty! Be strong in the Lord!
Thank you Pastor JD Farag!
In the event you only have time for the message you can jump to about the 30 minute mark.
Pastor JD Farag -thank you
If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
Today, consider vs. 39-40. Jesus is speaking to the religious leaders of the time – the ones who have memorized scripture. You can study scripture all of your life and still not come to Jesus. Knowing God comes to you through relationship with Jesus Christ. You can know about God without knowing God yourself. These scholars of scripture are waiting for a foretold savior’s arrival, yet they do not recognize that Christ is that savior…that Messiah. Christ alone is the living Word of God that sets us all free from the law of sin and death.
