  • “The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me.” – Psalm 138:8
    Most manifestly the confidence which the Psalmist here expressed was a divine confidence. He did not say, “I have grace enough to perfect that which concerneth me-my faith is so steady that it will not stagger-my love is so warm that it will never grow cold-my resolution is so firm that nothing can move it; […]
  • “Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money.” – Isaiah 43:24
    Worshippers at the temple were wont to bring presents of sweet perfumes to be burned upon the altar of God: but Israel, in the time of her backsliding, became ungenerous, and made but few votive offerings to her Lord: this was an evidence of coldness of heart towards God and his house. Reader, does this […]

SEEING EVERYTHING THROUGH GOD'S EYES!

As Bible believing people, we look at life and the issues we face through a different lens. When you look at what goes on around you and what you are personally going through in light of Scripture, it makes all the difference in the world. For instance, when Jonah was thrown into the Ocean and swallowed by the great fish, who threw into the Ocean? From Scripture it is plain to see that the Mariners threw Jonah into the Ocean. But, Who was behind the action of Jonah being thrown into the Ocean? Who sent the great fish? Where did the great fish take Jonah? Why didn’t it digest Jonah? How did Jonah stay alive inside the great fish? So, Who was actually behind the action of Jonah being thrown into the Ocean? The one who created Jonah and the one who created the great fish! He created both with a purpose! Our purpose is to glorify God in whatsoever we say, we eat, we drink, or we do. We are to do all to the glory of God. The Scripture teaches that, “…All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 So, when heartache comes into the lives of saved people, what is God doing? Is it judgement? If it is, the individual will have to be the one to make that call. (Even if it is God’s judgement, it is still for our good and His glory.) If it is not God’s judgement, what is our Lord doing in our lives or with our lives? It could very well be that our Lord considered us as He considered His servant Job. God said of Job that he was a, “Perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God and escheweth evil.” Job 1:8 What a testimony! Several thousand years later Job’s testimony is still being published. Billions of people have been encouraged by his faithfulness, patience, and trust in God. Hoy many or who has been encouraged by how you responded to trial and heartaches? Has God judged you trustworthy to give you trials or circumstances with which you could glorify His name? What a different way to look at this life! Our prayer to our Lord should be, “Lord, give me eyes to see beyond the outward appearance: to see what you are doing in and through my life.” Something to ponder..... DLT

Mother’s Day

There are many Mothers in the Bible noted,
With a heart for God and a life devoted.

Among those who in Christ’s genealogy are noted,
Are four who had no heart for God or life devoted!

But our heavenly Father in His wonderful GRACE,
Only named these four as Christ’s genealogy is traced.

The first one was Thamar who twin sons conceived,
By her father in-law who through deception she deceived.

The second, was Rahab who was called a harlot,
Who honored God and was protected by a thread of scarlet.

The third was Ruth, a Moabite, who married Naomi’s son,
Which formed a forbidden union that could not be undone.

The fourth was Bathsheba who bore Solomon by the King,
Though this marriage was made by such an evil thing.

But the Father through the BLOOD and His mighty GRACE,
Declares these Moms righteous, sins gone without a trace!

And so it is today that no matter how bad the start,
With BLOOD and GRACE applied, there comes a clean heart!

So, dear Moms with a pure or very tainted past,
Receive God GRACE, apply the BLOOD, to be clean and free at last!!!
DLT 2015

Though this poem was written 3 years ago, the truth is still valid, the grace is still real, and the blood of Christ still cleanses!

Happy Mother's Day!! I am so thankful to all the faithful Mothers, but not just this one day in May, everyday! Motherhood is from before birth until death. No matter how old the child gets, Mama is still Mama. She still prays for, still thinks about, and still gives her heart to her children. Then comes the grandchildren! This multiplies her love and enlarges her heart. Why? Because she is a MOTHER and has been given a Mother's Heart! THANK YOU MOM'S!!!!

I am especially thankful for my Mom, my Sweetheart and the mother of my children, my children, and my grand-children. I am truly blessed. DLT

This year has brought many different circumstances and many different opportunities to be discouraged or challenged, sad or joyful, to complain or to be content. If our relationship to our Lord is what He intends for it to be, then whatever we face will be working together for good and for His glory. Trying to see everything through His eyes and respond to everything according to His will and with His heart is a difficult thing in this flesh. It can only be done by being filled with His Holy Spirit. We are given many different opportunities to react or respond to situations in life. If we live our lives controlled by the flesh, our life will consist of whether something feels good or tastes good, for me to enjoy it. If I live my life according to the soul, the things I do or enjoy will be determined by my mind, will, or emotions. If I live my life according to the spirit, filled with the Holy Spirit, then my life will be lived as an extension of my Heavenly Father and will fulfil His will and not my fleshly will. But then shouldn’t my will be to fulfil the will of my Creator, my Heavenly Father? That would mean my success and joy would be derived from fulfilling the will of my Heavenly Father not from the praise of men, the accumulation of stuff, or the achieving of some earthly goal. That puts everything I face in life into a different perspective, a different light. Why am I here? What is my life’s ambition? Why do I get up in the morning? Why do I desire to get married? Why do I desire to have children? Why do I train my Children? Why do I love people? Why do I attend Church? Why do support my Church? Why do give to missions? Why do I tell others about Christ? In short, why do I do what I do or say what I say? Is it to please the Lord and that is what I want or is it simply because it’s what I want? This life is very short. It would be tragic to arrive at the end of our life only to realize it has all been in vain. That’s sort of where Solomon found himself. As I move through this life, I desire to realize, I only have one life that will soon be past and whatever I do with, for, and because of Christ will last! DLT ...

What a day. We started the day with a wonderful Prayer Breakfast with Brother Lee Call and some faithful members of Faith Baptist Church in Warrensburg, NY and Brother Guy Goodell and some of his faithful folks. Then headed back to the Church building for a work day. I am blessed by the folks who have helped take care of the tools our Lord has given us to serve Him with carry-out His Great Commission. Today our sign received a new coat of paint from Gabriel, one of our young people and his Dad, Dale Jenks. Our flower beds received a refresher of mulch from Deidre, Emma, Sheldon, Gabriel, and Dale. As you can see this was a family affair for the Jenks Family. Then it was that time of year again to put out the parking bumpers. Evan and Sheldon took care of that task. David and James helped put the bumpers in place, which is a heavy task and helped spread some of the mulch. They also helped move some things around inside the Church building. Robert and several others took on the task of picking up our winter's accumulation of branches, in preparation for Brother Jim who will mow next week for the first time this year. What a day! So thankful for all those who have helped in so many different ways. DLT ...

Well, it looks like Spring has finally arrived! I am very thankful for all the seasons, but if you are like me, I am always when the next season arrives. Each season has a uniqueness about it and has the blessing and marks of our Creator all over it! So, each season is a gift from our Creator and a testimony to His design in the seasons and in us. Our Creator designed the seasons for us and us to look forward to each one of them. He also designed us to have a choice as to whether we would be content with His gift to us. In His word through the Apostle Paul, “Godliness with contentment is great gain.” and “For I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” Then in Hebrews the Lord said again, “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” It is amazing the number of ways we can express discontentment: complaining, criticizing, changing our minds often on choices, and the list could go on. Think of the ways we can express contentment: gratitude, graciousness, thankfulness or thanksgiving, and praise. It’s really amazing, I have been on both sides of this equation and life is so much more fulfilling to be on the praise side that on the complaining side. It is so miserable to be on the side that is complaining and only sees the negative, the wrong, the lack in something. My Sweetheart and I were with a couple years ago and everything his wife cooked always needed something to make it better. That would be a tough spot for a wife! Why not be content and thankful? Why not praise and enjoy the uniqueness of every dish that is prepared for you? The same thing with our Lord, every day is a new day! This is the day that the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it!

Remember, this is getting to be the time when folks plan vacations, PLEASE, don’t vacate from Church or the Lord during this time. Plan ahead, locate a Church, and don’t miss a service. You will be blessed, your family will be blessed, and the Church you visit will be blessed. (Your Pastor will be blessed that you didn’t exclude the Lord out of your vacation.)

Spring is here or, so the calendar tells us. However, we wait on Spring to arrive in reality. But it is still a blessing to see the snowbanks getting smaller. The one at the end of the parking lot is now only about 10 feet high at its highest point and shrinking a little each day. So, by June all our snow should be gone! :-}

Well, on a more serious note, no matter what the weather is on the outside, Christ still reigns! Praise our Lord for all He is doing in our Church. We saw a precious soul come to Christ this week, as well as other answers to prayer. If we could only see the power that is available to the Church through prayer. Except through the deception of Satan, I don’t see how people become so isolated. The very word for Church means a called-out assembly. Being called-out is only part of being in our Lord’s will. The other part of the design of our Lord is to assemble with others that are also called-out. Now, what is the power of this called-out assembly? The One who gave Himself for this called-out assembly gave them the privilege of prayer! This would include coming to Him and asking for His plan, His understanding, His instructions, His provision, His power, and praising Him for all of this. All of this, has been taught us in His word and empowered by His Holy Spirit. So, we really have a win-win situation if we faithfully assemble together, pray to Heavenly Father, and obey His word. So, what do you think would be the enemy’s chief tactic to destroy God’s plan and God’s work? Stop the called-out assembly from assembling, stop or hinder them from praying, and keep them too busy to read God’s word. What has the enemy told you or is using to keep you from assembling with the Church when it assembles (hobbies, resting, sports, or work)? What has the enemy done or is doing to keep you from praying (worrying, getting discouraged, working longer hours, or any other thing that keeps you from praying)? What has the enemy brought into your schedule that occupies your time so thoroughly that you don’t have time to read your Bible? Sometimes the enemy will use “good things” to sidetrack us from doing what is best. Sometimes the enemy will use good people to sidetrack us from time with our Heavenly Father. Sometimes the enemy will use entertainment, electronics, education, sports, or even service to sidetrack us from spending time with our Lord. What is hindering you and thereby hindering the called-out assembly?? Something to ponder……
