The Second Man


In today’s society everyone wants to be at the front of the line or the one being seen. The church is no exception I have seen it with my own eyes. My view is every good pastor needs a good second man, some one to help him in times when he has to much on his plate, Leading a bible believing church is hard work and without a good second man the pastor gets over worked and can’t do what the bible tells him to do. The pastor should be in the word and prayer continually, daily,

If you belong to a church and you have a pastor that works hard at preaching he needs your help, I am not a pastor at my church but I do work hard at trying to help my preacher, I am not a Deccan either I am just a layman preacher that is willing to help my preacher any time he calls on me, It is an honor for me to get a call from my preacher to do something for him. The more I help him the more he can help me on Sunday morning and Sunday night and Wednesday night, The more we help our pastor’s the more they can help our family.  We should all have a servant spirit about us to help our preacher when they need us.If you belong to a bible believing church and you see your preacher doing something other than counseling or preaching just ask him “Can I help Preacher“? I would say he would say yes you can.

It is not up to the Pastor to do every thing in the church. Help your preacher and you will see he will be able to help you more in the pulpit. God Bless and I hope you ask your preacher this week if you can help him do something for him he needs all the help he can get.

Complacancy in the 21st century Church


The difference in our day and earlier days in our country is the dependence upon God, The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, “Israel”, we have moved away from the dependence on him to dependence upon Wall Street, we all want to know how the Dow Jones did to-day or what ever your invested in, Oh we go to church because it is the right thing to do. but do we listen to the man of God when he delivers the message God has given him for his people? We have become complacent disinterested in the things of God. We have let a few people take down the Ten Commandments from our schools and look what that has gotten us. At least when they taught them in the class room there was an absolute right and an absolute wrong, now they say what is right for one may not be right for another. Well in my moral compass “Thou shalt not kill” “murder” is still wrong, Thou shalt not steal is still wrong, Christians have become so complacent about their religion they sit by and let the “aclu” go ahead and take them from us, if there were as many Christians in this country that say they are Christian that would have never happened.There use to be a time in America when the Church had Power from God but now we have become a door mat for the world to wipe their feet on. Don’t get me wrong I am still going to church and I am still telling people about Christ, but the majority don’t they sit on their sofas while the atheistic lawyers are up at night figuring out ways to take the church down, which it will never do because Christ said “Upon this rock I will build my church.” and when he builds it satan can’t pull it down.

We are complacent of the “Old time religion” and I am skeptical about the word religion. I believe a man should be spiritual and The bible says That God is spirit and we must worship in him in Spirit and in TRUTH, We have quit praying in the homes across this great nation, God is not a magic gini in a bottle to rub when you’re in trouble he is there for us all the time if we would accept it. The bible says “Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world”. We have all the power we need if we would do what we are told in the Bible, We should quit doubting the bible and go on and use it to raise our kids and keep it in the center of our homes. Complacent Christianity is hurting the 21st century church. People have lost interest and they have humanized God in such a way that makes him no more than (please excuse the expression) “the man up stares” God is still God and there is only one way to him that is through Christ Jesus and his atonement for our sins on the cross and his resurrection on the 3rd day.

But complacency has stifled the church we used to have 2 week revival meetings now we have 3 day meetings, it takes 3 days to get right with God at a revival meeting, it takes 3 days  to get it going. in our day and time with all the allurements and attractions. We can get more to go to a ball game than we can to church for 1hr on Sunday morning I just wonder if all those professing to be Christians are even Christians at all

The text here is 1 Tim 4:13 “exhortation doctrine”Till I come, give attendance to, attendance to reading, to  , some don’t like the word Doctrine I don’t know why because doctrine is what we believe and teach. Doctrine is so important this is where many veer from the bible and go off on their own teaching. Tickling the ears of others and luring folks away from sound doctrine given in the bible. But some folks like that ear tickling don’t get me wrong I think God wants us to know he loves us and we should preach that he loves us, there is  a real Hell and a real Heaven and you have to know you’re a sinner to be born again so some time or another your going to have to hear a sermon on sin.  We could read our bible and see that for our selves if the TV would shut off some time,

Both the body and the brain have a tendency to be Lazy!  Modern Technology allows and encourages us to put our brains in neutral and let the television, the internet. the video game, or the cell phone do the thinking for us. People boast of being broad-minded but are too lazy to think about what is right. Are you complacent in your service to Christ have you become lazy and disinterested in the things of the Lord? All you have to do is ask for forgiveness and start getting busy for him. He will forgive you no matter how far you have move away from him he is always there ready for you to come back.

Complacent means in a sense half-hearted, cold, having or showing a lack of interest. God Bless you and may you serve him with all your heart.  Start today.

The Bible way to Heaven


People will tell you all the time that there are many ways to heaven,well I will tell you believe me or not there is only one way to heaven I believe the bible to be true I do not argue or fuss or debate with critics, I just know what the bible says about how to go to heaven and to be sure of it.

This is what the bible says about How you can know for sure your on your why to heaven.Some want to make it hard and tell you you have to live a certain way. But let me tell you you don’t get right to receive Christ you receive Christ to get right. Give Christ a Chance

Let me tell you what the bible says about how to get to heaven and you look it up in there your self because it is between you and Him

There is a way to know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and to know for sure , that when you die, you will go to heaven.

Realize that God Loves you and has a plan for your life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 

The bible says that all men are sinners, our sins have separated us from God. “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”Romans 3:23

God made man in his own image. He gave man the ability to choose right from wrong. We chose to sin, Our sin separate us from God.
Gods word also says that sin has to be paid for. “For the wages of sin is death….” Romans 6:23

Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death and hell, separation from God forever if we continue in our sin, we shall die without Christ and be without God forever.

The good news is that Christ Paid for our sins. All our sins we laid on Christ on the cross. He paid our sin debt for us. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, and he arose from the dead. and he is alive forevermore. “But God commendeth his Love toward us that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

We Must personally pray and receive Christ by Faith as our Savoir

The bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Pray and receive Christ as your savior, A prayer from your heart not from your head,

pray a simple prayer like this from your heart.

Lord, I know I am a sinner. If I died today I would not go to heaven. Forgive my sin, come into my life and be my Savior. Help he to live for you from this day forward. IN JESUS NAME amen.

the bible says “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord Shall be saved.”
New life ever lasting life begins when we receive Christ as our Savior.  Let me help you in your New life as a Christian,
