do not have news letters; we have what we call Monthly Messages.
It is simply a poem that the Lord had so graciously given me, and
my comment on that particular poem.
January 2017 Monthly Message
Consider how many folks there are,
The world over, who from God are far.
Proud they are, craving earthly things,
Succumb to temptations Satan brings.
Most people want what Satan can give,
They follow after him, as they live.
Seeking wealth and pleasure with ev’ry breath,
And power and fame; ne’er thinking of death.
Satan makes ev’ry thing look so great,
He has power we can’t estimate.
A dark evil creature of the night,
He shows himself as an angel of light.
People just flock to his constant pull,
He gives what they want; he is no fool.
Makes all his wrongs and evils look right,
Most folks accept this without a fight.
I ask you consider one thing more,
What does eternity hold in store?
Your soul lives forever in some place,
Do you want some day to see God’s Face?
Can the ‘prince of devils’ save your soul?
NO WAY! only Christ has that control!
Satan will be cast, by Christ, to Hell,
There for eternity he will dwell.
If you want to follow Satan; with him you’ll go,
God’s Word is clear; God wants you to know.
The option is Christ; He can save you,
And live for e’er in Heav’n, that He does endue.

Words of Wisdom
Problems are just opportunities to find God’s will for you.
Adversity always gives us the best education.
Salvation is what we RECEIVE, not what we achieve!
If you are too busy to pray, you are too busy!
Give your life to God; He can do much more with it than you can.
What kind of New Year’s Resolution should a Christian make?
As the New Year looms before us, we consider the past and the future. Many make New Year’s resolutions that most often do not get fulfilled. It is my humble opinion that IF we want to make some resolutions, these should be resolutions that will honor God, further His Kingdom, and help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Consider the following:
*****#1.Resolve to stay faithful to Jesus Christ. He is the only Way, Truth and Life (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). There is NO reason to look anywhere else for salvation.
*****#2. Resolve not let anything become an object of worship to you (Mat.4:10).
*****#3. Resolve to NOT take the Name of God in vain (Ex.20:7).
*****#4. Resolve to trust God to provide for your needs each day (Phip.4:19).
*****#5. Resolve to honor your parents and the elderly (Ex.20:12; Mat.15:4-6; 19:19).
*****#6. Resolve to be watch your temper and be angry less (Eph.4:26-27; Jam.1:20).
*****#7. Resolve to love honor your commitment to your spouse (Gal.5:22-23; Eph.4:23).
*****#8. Resolve to speak about others with truth and love, not gossip (Pro.11:13; 17:9).
*****#9. Resolve to be content with what you have (Phil.4:11; 1 Tim.6:8).
*****#10. Resolve to pray more.Far too often we struggle on our own, leaving prayer as the last resort. It should be the first thing that we think of. Trying try to fix things myself without bothering God will not work. Things usually get worse without His help. Phil. 4:6-7 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (KJV) . . . We all can use a little more peace!
Mat. 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (KJV) . . . We should want to get our priorities in tune with God’s will, so that my every effort is in line with what He wants for me.
*****#11. Resolve to Read the Bible daily. There is NO other book as important as the Bible. The importance of studying this Word cannot be overstated. (2 Tim. 3:16) IF we really want to know God, and please Him, we must study His Word.
*****#12. Resolve to trust and obey Jesus, and increase your faith (Luke 17:5)
For those of us who know Jesus as our Saviour, I would encourage each of us to take a good look at our Christian walk to see if we are ‘walking worthy’ of our Lord (Eph. 4:1; Col. 1:10; 1 Thes.2:12). Are we walking on that narrow road with Jesus? Is He pleased with our progress? Let us judge ourselves, so He doesn’t have to (1 Cor.11:31).
