PASTOR'S NOTES

 

     
APRIL 2008

I come before your presence with praise and thanks giving but God get the glory.

God gave Moses an assignment to bring the children of Israel from down in Egypt. 

The Birth of the Nation Israel

Israel and her deliverance from Egypt pointed forward the great deliverance from the Bondage of Sin to be provided by the Messiah.  In the Passover, a lamb without blemish was selected and killed.  That blood was applied to the door post of the house.  The lamb was roasted and eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

Now the illustration came when John the Baptist introduced Jesus to the nation.  He recognized Christ as the fulfillment of the typical Passover… a lamb.  The lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world.  But now many Christians don’t recognize the fulfillment of the Passover and the Sacrifice by Christ… to keep the feast by living a sincere and a truth life.

I Corinthians 5:6  Your (our) glorifying is not good.  Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

John the Baptist introduced Jesus to the nation so he can leaven the whole lump so that everybody can be save.  One body and many members.

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may have a new lump.  For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed (crucified) for us (with his blood).

St. John 1:29  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

And John 19:14  And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour:  and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

John 19:15  “… The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.”

Now, we have two Passovers:  the old and the new.  Where Christ is our Passover.

Now, we have two unleavened: the old and the new.

Matthew 16:6  Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. (swelling words)

We have 2 covenants old and new covenants.  It is similarities between the two covenants.

1.  Both are called covenants.

2.  Both were ratified with Blood.

3.  Both were made concerning the Law of God because Moses kept God commandments down in Egypt.

4.  Both were made with the people of God.

5.   Both were established upon promises.  The Old Covenant called the first covenant was a temporary compact.  Dedicated with blood of animals and didn’t last.  But was established on promises to the people but had no mediator.  It had no forgiveness of sin.  The Law was written on the tables of stone.

The new covenant called the second covenant is everlasting.  It is ratified with the Blood of Christ.  It is a better covenant.  It is established upon the promises of God.  Now, we have a mediator and forgiveness of sin.  The Law is written in our hearts. It was ended at the cross when He said it is finished.

Ecclesiastes 12:14  For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

I Corinthians 6:19  What?  know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God,  and ye are not your own?

That all men are created equal and one blood He shed for all.

Isaiah 53:4 – 5 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities:  the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

And together we stand and divided we fall.

Ezekiel 37:15 – 17  The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.

Judah was the cause Joseph was delivered.  And Joseph was the cause Jacob and the 12 tribes were saved through the famine.  Jacob sons and Jacob is also called Ephraim. 

God bless the United States of America and you too!

MARCH 2008

I come before your presence with thanks giving but the praise be unto God.  I want let you know that you can always call on Jesus.

I Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

So, be glad about this even though it may be sad for a while.  Because there are many kinds of trials we suffer.  Their purpose is to prove that your faith is genuine.  Even gold is tested by fire and so our faith must be tested also then you will receive praises, glory and honor.

So,  I began to look over my life.  I can’t imagine where I would be today if I hand never made it up in my own dear mind that I wanted to be saved.  Since that time the Lord has made me and conditioned me to be a woman of dreams and visions (even open eye visions). 

I have been chosen as a strong vessel to minister the word of God.  For the Lord talks to me and he is the head of my life.  He directs my path and guides my footsteps.  God said if we acknowledge him in all thy ways he would direct our path.  God is a good God and I can’t afford to let my Savior down.  For He continues to bless me so that I can bless others.  Because I knew in my heart when I was just 12 years old that I didn’t want to die and go to hell.  And as today, I’m still standing before the Lord with a made up mind that I will serve him all the days of my life.  For it is by His grace I am saved and His grace is sufficient.   For what will I profit if I gained the whole world and loose my own soul.  But God has put me in his blue print when he gave me Galatians 1:15 and said, “That’s you girl.”  

Galatians 1:15  But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,

Galatians 1:16  To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood.

Now coming from a root is to separate or cut off and the Holy root is Jesus.

John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him (Thomas), I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

 

Isaiah the Future Glory

Isaiah 59:1  Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear.

Romans 10:4 – 5  For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.  For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.

Righteousness is by faith in Christ.

Romans 10: 6 – 7  But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)

Romans 10: 8 – 10 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Romans 12:16   Be of the same mind one toward another.  Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate.  Be not wise in your own conceits 

For God is love 

John 3:16  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.

 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die (St John 11:26).

I Peter 1:7  That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

May God Bless the United States of America and you too!

OCTOBER 2007 I come before your presence and before God with thanksgiving and praises in the name of Jesus.

I was just thinking how God has worked so many miracles in my life. My sister, Rosa Lee Peck, and I were talking about the wonderful things that had happen in our life and how God worked for us both. At that time she had 9 children and I had 2 myself. It has not always been easy working on a plantation for a living making 13 dollars and 60 cents a week. But, after then I got married I left the plantation. But, I was having a baby every year from 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1960, 1962, 1964, 1968, and 1969. My oldest son was born in 1953 but the other babies were from 1955 on. I loved all my babies. I didn’t have to work but I helped him out when I could because my husband had a farm. I would weigh cotton for the peoples if my husband didn’t come back in time or the cotton would have to wait until the next morning when they came back to work.

But, let me tell you how God worked for me with my last two sons, Solomon and Stanford. They were born in 1968 and 1969. I prayed and ask the Lord don’t let me have no more children. Every night I prayed I dreamed about a baby. I told my sister, Rosa Peck, you know every time I dream about babies when I ask the Lord don’t let me have no more children. I dream the same night about babies. Then I got fearful and scared. I stopped talking about babies. Finally, I got pregnant with Solomon. When he was born later I was sitting on the side of the bed and I said, “Now, Lord don’t let me have no more babies.” That night I dreamed that a baby was on my front door crying. I woke up my husband and said I hear a baby crying. He got up and went to open the door. There was a baby wrapped in a blanket right at the door. We called the police and told him that somebody left their baby at our door. The police said get in the car. Me and my husband got in the back seat with the baby. The police drove us all around trying to find the baby’s mother but we couldn’t. So, the police brought us back to our house. The police said you keep the baby and the way will be made for you… you keep the baby. Then I woke up out of the dream. Then I got pregnant and I had to keep my baby and the way was made for me.

Well, my husband died when my baby was 8 months old. God did take care of him and the rest of my children. So, God let me know that I had to have all ten of my children.

God gave me the 23rd Psalm…

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Psalm 124:2 – 3 If it had not been for the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us: Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us.

Saints of God if God be for us who can be against us. Plus, nobody but nobody can live in this world alone.

God gave me Philippians 4:19 when I was reading a sales paper, me and Sis. Phelan.
And God said Philippians 4:19 loud and I was amazed to hear a voice. We weren’t even talking about the Bible nor scriptures. All I can say Bless the Lord, O my soul and all that is with me. Bless his Holy name. Bless the Lord, O, my soul and forget not all his benefits.

Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his reches in glory by Christ Jesus.

God Bless the United States of America and you too!

This cry must be heard!

SEPTEMBER 2007

I come before your presence with thanks giving and with hope in my heart.

Hebrew 11:1 & 2 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Hebrews 1:6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Even Moses choosing rather to suffer affliction with the peoples of God than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. (Hebrew 11:25)

Now, Jesus is letting us know a house divided cannot stand.  

And  He knew their thoughts and said unto them… Matthew 12:25  Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.

Now Jesus is letting us know that any family or group divided will fight each other.

Matthew 24th chapter is telling us about destruction of the temple and signs before the end. It is letting us know about wars and rumors of wars.  It is referring to peace being taking from the earth.  That’s why in all the world the Gospel must be preached.

Matthew 24:4-8 And Jesus answered and said unto them,  Take heed that no man deceive you.  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.  And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars:  see that ye be not troubled; for all these thing things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Christ teaching on the Law

Acts 5:17 – 18  Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittles shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Matthew 24:34  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Matthew 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Colossians 1:26 -28  Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:  Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

Matthew 10:26  Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

God told me if I didn’t warn the peoples they can’t be delivered.  Now if you listen to me closely I will tell you what I know…

The storm clouds are gathering and the wind is gonna blow

The race of man is suffering and I can hear the mourn

But, Saints of God let us get together because we just can’t live

In this whole world alone.

John 15:3  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Romans 5:19  For as by ones man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Job 9:2  I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God?

While I was reading this, the Lord spoke to me and said, “a virgin.”

I thought about the Virgin Mary, Jesus mother, and Philip had 4 daughters, virgins which did prophesy (preach).  (Acts 21:9)

Matthew 25:1 – 2 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

Now God is showing us the church and what is going on in the church.  The 5 wise virgins were the real Saints and true believers and the 5 foolish ones pretended that were saved.  Because they that were foolish their lamps and took no oil with them.  (Matthew 25:3)

Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:  because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no more priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

All I can say now is Lord have mercy on me!

God Bless the United States of America and you too and me too!    Amen.

AUGUST 2007 I come before your presence with thanks giving again. For God is good and his mercy endureth forever.

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

For God gives life and God takes away life.

And Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

Luke 4:18 -21 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou has reject thee, that thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

God remind me of this saying…

If all the dishonest folks will confess up
And all the crooked folks will straighten up
And all the drunkards and drug folks will sober up
And all the depressed folks will look up
And all the separated folks will make up
And all the gossiping folks will shut up
And all the discourage folks will cheer up
And all the lying folks will shut up
And all the lazy folks will act up
And the True Soldiers will stand up
This will be a better world to live in.

I Peter 5:6 – 7 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

I remember when I was living on North Ripley Street. I decided to go to the country to see my mother and take her some fruits. She loved fruits. So, I caught a ride out there but I had to walk from the highway. It was about three miles before I could get to mama’s house. I got so cold. I got real cold. So, I started running and I still didn’t warm. I started skipping and I was still so cold. I started walking fast. I still didn’t warm. My face and ears were so cold. I started to touch my ear but I thought it would fall off. Then I started praying and I told the Lord that I am so cold. Lord, please help me…I am so cold. And right then the Lord heard my prayer and I got so warm…all the way to my mama’s house. She was so glad that the Lord had blessed me.

Then I thought on this scripture Revelation 3:15 telling us about the faithful and true witness and the beginning of the Creation of God.

Revelation 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.

By me trusting in the Lord because I was so cold, my life was still in God’s hand. That’s why I just started praying until God heard my cry. He made me so happy by warming me up and then I got so hot.

Then I thought on I Peter 1:7…That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

Jeremiah 20:9 “Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones…”

Jeremiah 1:9 (God gave me this scripture) Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth; And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in they mouth.

Ezekiel 3:1-4 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel. So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll. And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.

So, I am doing that now.

God Bless the United States of America and you too!

JULY 2007 I Come before your presence with thanksgiving again. Sitting in church on Tuesday evening all alone thinking about…

What a friend we have in Jesus
And all our sins and grieves to bare
And what a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer

And what peace we often forfeit
Oh, what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of the God, I will also forget thy children.

Hosea 4:7 as they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.

Revelation 2:2 know thy works, and thy labor, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars.

Revelation 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

St. John 15:13 – 15 Greater love hat no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all thing that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

Jesus said in St. John 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

Now the Lord gave me this…

Genesis 29:16 – 32 And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Leah was tender-eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well-favored. And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter. And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, that I should give her to another man: abide with me. And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her. And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast. And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him, he went in unto her. And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for a handmaid. And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thing hast done unto me? Did not I serve with thee for Rachel? Wherefore then hast thou beguiled me? And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the first-born. Fulfill her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years. And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also. And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her maid. And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years. And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

Genesis 29:32 “And Leah conceived…”

Genesis 29:33 “And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the Lord heard that I was hated, …”

Leah had a total of 6 sons and one daughter in all.

Genesis 32:22 was telling how Jacob had 11 sons. But he had only one daughter.

Jacob wrestled with the angel

Genesis 32:24 – 28 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until breaking of the day. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed (won).

Genesis 35:22 – 26 And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah, his father’s concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve: The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob’s first born, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun: The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin: And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel’s handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali: And the sons of Zilpah, Leah’s handmaid; Gad, and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, which were born to in Padan-aram.

And that is why we are here today because of Jacob and his true love he had for Rachel. He was willing to work for what he wanted.

Now, Jesus came to save us.

Luke 4:18 – 22 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hat anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hat sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son?

Because Jesus came out of love.

St. John 3:16 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.

God Bless the United States of America and you too!!

JUNE 2007 I come before your presence with thanksgiving again. I am sitting in church me and Sis. Germon just reading about I can do all thing through Christ which strengthen me (Philippians 4:3). I thought on Paul and how God has given him strength to be content in all circumstances.

Philippians 4:19 Paul said…But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Paul said I learned how to be satisfied with what he had and learned in secret whether I am full or hungry.

Mattthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Isaiah 40:10 -11 says Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and with his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

Then it came to me…The Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not want. This has been coming to me many years ago. Psalm 23:1 says the Lord is my Shepherd: I shall not want. It would come to me all the time whether I am in bed or walking or riding the city bus. I didn’t have a car at that time. If I’m talking to someone it would come to me. The voice would say, “The Lord is my Shepherd.” Until one day it troubled me. This is when I started asking different peoples about it. It kept coming to me the Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not want. Well, some peoples said that I was worrying about something. I would tell them I am not worried about anything. Some peoples said you are worried and don’t know it.

Well, it went on about 2 years and I didn’t know what to do and couldn’t do nothing about it but think about it. Nobody could give me the answer. When I would go to church and the Spirit gets high and when the Spirit came upon me my hand it would shake. One hand would shake at a time. I think my right hand would be first just shaking a long time then it would go sometimes to the other one. But, when it started shaking I would feel ashamed and put my hand kind of under the side of me because I didn’t want nobody to see it. But one day, I went to my daddy’s house on High Street. I can still hear the voice say, “The Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not want. A young boy was there and said the Lord had called him to preach. He was 15 years old. Then I heard the voice again saying the Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not want. So, I looked at the boy and said he don’t know he’s too young. It came to me how I have been asking other peoples so, I decided to ask him. He picked up his bible and said come on and we went to another room by ourselves.


He turned to Psalm 23:1 and began to read. He said the Lord was telling you…The Lord is your Shepherd and you shall not want. Verse 2…He maketh me to lie down in green pastures…For the Lord is compared to a Shepherd and his believers are his sheeps. He leadeth me beside still waters….because the sheep is dependant on the Shepherd for provision and protection. Verse 3 …He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Verse 4… Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Psalm 44:18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way.

Psalm 3:5 – 6 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me. I will not afraid of ten thousands of people that have set themselves against me round about.

Psalm 3:8 Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: thy blessing is upon thy people.

Psalm 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Psalm 92:10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of a unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

Psalm 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

For the Lord is my Shepherd, what about you?

St. John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

MAY 2007 I come before your presence with thanksgiving again and thinking on the Word of God in the book of Psalms. Where it says blessed are the righteous.

Psalm 1:1 – 6 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of righteous.
For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Now, we know that we got to put on the whole armor of God.

Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore, shaving your loins girt abut with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness.

Ephesians 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

And you got to have the shield of faith to be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. You got to take the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Galatians 3:27 – 28 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male or female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

From the Old Testament unto the New Testament.

Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.

Acts Chapter 2

The Coming of the Holy Spirit

Acts 2:17 “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy (preach) and your young men shall see visions…”

Acts 2:18 “…and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy (preach).”

Acts 21:9 Philip had 4 daughters, virgins, which did prophesy (preach).

Now I am going to tell you what God done for me. I went to my second oldest sister house but she wasn’t there when I got there. Me and her tall boys started reading the bible and discussing it and we had a good time. When I got home, I just laid across the bed feeling real good. I heard a voice saying, “Galatians 1:15 that’s you girl!” I was so amazed to hear a voice telling me this. So, I got up and got my bible and began to read it. It reads…

Galatians 1:15 But when it pleased God; who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,

Galatians 1:16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood.

St. John 4:4 And Jesus said he must needs to go through Samaria.

St. John 4:9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

Now you see Jesus is getting all his peoples together as one body and its many members.

St. John 4:28 – 29 She went into the city and said unto the men, Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? (Come see)

St. John 4:39 “And many of the Samaritans of that believed on him for the saying of the woman….”

St. John 4:42 “said to the woman, Now we believe…”


The Future Prosperity of God’s People


Jeremiah 31:22 How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? For the Lord hat created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.

Well, where are our men?

Well, Exodus 1:22 Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.

In Matthew 2:16 Herod slew all the boy babies from 2 years old and under.

God gave me Matthew 7:16 - 20 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Yes, what they do.)

Yes, Yes, God gave me this scripture…

Hebrew 13:15 By him (Jesus) therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

Hebrew 13:16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Hebrew 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

Hebrew 11:1 – 2 Now faith is the substance of thing hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Since so many are being led in the wrong way and led by the wrong peoples and false prophets, God is warning us.

Matthew 7:22 – 23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Now this message alone will not change our life. For we must both hear and do.

God Bless the United States of America and you too!

APRIL 2007

I come before your presence with thanksgiving again.

 

Genesis 18:14  Is anything too hard for the Lord?  At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

 

Even in her old age.

 

Genesis 18:13  And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?

 

Well, is anything to hard for God?  When I was living in Smiley Court, I was on program to sing a song at a Business meeting.  It took place at the Smiley Court Community Center but that day I was very hoarse.  I could hardly talk and I knew I couldn’t sing at all.  So, I said to myself I am not going because I couldn’t talk.  But, I heard a voice saying, “How they know you can’t talk but if you go they will see for themselves.”  Then I said Lord, they don’t know whether I am hoarse or not.  So, I got ready and went on up there and so many peoples were there that I could hardly find me a seat.  In a few minutes they called my name to sing.  I had forgotten that I was hoarse.  So, I stood up and started singing “Give me that Old Time Religion that’s good enough for me…It will take you on to Heaven and it’s good enough for me.”  And about that time a lady got up and went to the piano and began to play.  And the Holy Ghost came all over me and talking about singing.  I felt like flying all over that place and the anointing was so high.  The blacks and whites were coming and were pushing through to shake my hand.  And after it was all over, I wondered about this.  I had been hoarse for about 3 days or more.  But, I knew the Lord told me to go because they didn’t know I couldn’t talk and I knew it was true.  But, when I obeyed…God let me knowed that my body belongs to Him.

 

I Corinthians 6:20  For ye are bought with a price:  therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

 

Saints of God, we was put on this earth to experience the beauty of life and enjoy our relationship with one another.  If there is something that is stopping you from this than you owe it to yourself and God find a way to move it or pass it.

 

I Corinthians 3:16  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

 

I Corinthians 3:17  If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God id holy, which temple ye are.

 

 

Saints of God we need a healing from old wounds that is in us. It is because of forgiveness.  We need a healing.  The only way we can get the healing is by forgiving one another.

 

Matthew 6:14  For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

 

Matthew 6:15  But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

 

So, that is our problem…holding in us what somebody said or done to us is not allowing us to be free.  So, our wounds are keeping us bound and keeping things in us will make us start to dislike and hate.  So, forgive and let it go because God is the only problem solver.  Please, don’t be like the lady.  She was very old with a walking cane.  She kept on dreaming about tea bags that she could never pull all of them out of her mouth.  So, she start dreaming more and more until it started to worry her.  So, she came to a Friday night Church Service.  She asked Bishop of All Nation Church to tell her what the meaning of all the tea bags.  She said she never could pull them all out and kept on dreaming the same thing.  Bishop said I don’t know.  She said when you get through preaching maybe God will tell you then, he said maybe so.  When he finished preaching she met him when he came down out of the pulpit.  She said Bishop did the Lord told you anything?  He said the Lord didn’t tell me nothing.  So, she turned around and started walking back slow.  Then I said, “I know.”  She stopped and said you do?  Then I said…you said you never pulled them all out and you would wake up out of the dream.  I said tea bags are bitter and when you make tea it will still be bitter unless you put sugar in it and make it sweet and good.  Now, you got some old stuff in you that need to come out.  Then she said, “don’t tell me no more!…don’t tell me no more!”  “It is about my husband and another lady that he was going with and how he ran all over me.”  She said both are dead now. 

 

You see she still had that wound that needed to be healed.  So, my sisters and my brothers let us get healed by forgiving one another.  We got faults too and if we don’t forgive others God will not forgive us.

 

This Cry must be Heard!!!

 

God Bless the United States of America and you too!

MARCH 2007

I come before your presence again with praises and thanksgiving.

 

Hosea 4:6  “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…”

 

Like peoples in authority over organizations, churches and rulers.  Liken unto what is called the “lost” Bible such as one of the books called Susanna.

THE BOOK  OF  SUSANNA

 

Susanna’s Beauty Attracts Two Judges

 

1 In Babylon there lived a man named Joakim, 2 who was married to Susanna, daughter of Hilkiah.  Susanna was beautiful woman and deeply religious. 3 Her parents were devout Jews who had brought up her daughter to live according to the Law of Moses. 4 Her husband Joakim was very wealthy.  Lovely gardens surrounded his house, and the other Jews often gathered there for meetings, because they all thought so highly of him.  5-6 Everyone who had a legal case to present would also go to Joakim’s house, where two judges held court.  These two leaders of the Hewish community had recently been appointed to office.  They were the ones about whom the Lord said, “There is wickedness in Babylon; judges are failing to give guidance to the people.”

7 Every day at noon, when all the people left for lunch, Susanna used to take a walk in the gardens.  8 The two judges were so attracted to her that they would wait around and watch for her.  9 They became so obsessed with their desire for her that they lost interest both in prayer and in their responsibility as judges.  10 They each wanted Susanna, but neither told the other how he felt, 11 for each was ashamed to admit his lust.  12 So day after day they watched eagerly to catch sight of her.

13 One day at noon they said to each other, “It’s time for lunch; let’s go home.”  14 So they both left and went their separate ways, but soon each one came back for a look at Susanna, and by accident they met each other.  At first each tried to explain what he was doing there, but finally they both confessed their desire for Susanna.  They decided to watch for a time when they might find her alone.  15-17 So they kept waiting for the right opportunity.

 

The Judges Try to Seduce Susanna

 

One Day Susanna went into the garden as usual with her two servant women.  No one else was there, except the two judges, who had hidden themselves and were watching Susanna.  It was very hot and she decided to take a bath.  So she said to her servants, “Bring me some bath oil and some perfume, and lock the gates, so that I won’t be disturbed.”  18 The Servants locked the main gates and went out by the side door to get what Susanna had asked for.  They did not notice the two men.

19 As soon as the servants had left, the two judges jumped out from their hiding place, ran to Susanna, 20 and said to her, “The gates are locked and no one will see us.  We are burning to have sex with you, so give us what we want.  21 If you don’t we will go to court and swear that we saw you send your servants away, so that you could be alone with a young man.”

22 “There is no way out, “Susanna moaned.  “If I give in to you, I could be put to death for adultery.  If I refuse, you will still have me trapped.  23 But I would rather be your innocent victim than sin against the Lord.”  24 So she started screaming as loud as she could, and the two judges began shouting accusations, 25 while one of them ran and unlocked the gates.

26 As soon as the servants in the house heard all the noise, they ran into the gardens through the side door to find out what had happened to Susanna.  27 The judges told their story, and the servants were shocked and ashamed.  Such a thing had never before been said about Susanna.

 

The Judges Testify against Susanna

 

28 The next day, when the people assembled at Joakim’s house, the two judges arrived, fully determined to carry out their wicked plan to have Susanna put to death.  29 In front of all the people they said, “Send for Joakim’s wife Susanna, the daughter of Hilkiah.”  When she was called, 30 she came in with her parents, her children, and all her other relatives.  31 Susanna was so graceful and beautiful 32 that the two wicked men ordered her veil to be removed, so that they might enjoy looking at her. 33 Her family and everyone else were in tears.

34 Then the two judges stood up in front of the people, placed their hands on Susanna’s head, and began making their accusations against her.  35 She was crying, but she looked up to heaven because she trusted the Lord.  36 The two men gave the following testimony:  “We were walking in the gardens when this woman came in with her two servant women.  She locked the main gates and asked the servants to leave.  37 Then a young man who had been hiding in the gardens came to her, and they lay down together.  38 We were in a corner of gardens, and when we saw what was happening, we ran over 39 and caught them in the act.  We tried to hold on to the man, but he was too strong for us.  He ran an opened the gates and got away,  40 but we were able to hold the woman.  We asked her who the man was, but she refused to tell us.  We swear that our testimony is true.”  41 Because the two men were not only leaders in the community but also judges, the people believed their story and condemned Susanna to death.

 

Daniel Rescues Susanna

 

42 Then Susanna cried out in a loud voice, “Eternal God, nothing can be kept secret from you; you know everything before it happens. 43 Here I am about to die, but you know that I am innocent, that these men are lying.  Why must I die?”

44 The Lord heard her prayer 45 and led a young man named Daniel to speak out, just as Susanna was being taken away to her death.  46 He shouted, “I refuse to a party to her death!”

47 Everyone turned around to look at him, and asked, “What are you talking about?”

48 Daniel stood up before them and said, “People of Israel, how foolish can you be?  Are you going to condemn an Israelite woman to death on this kind of evidence?  You haven’t tried to find out the truth.  49 Reopen the case.  The testimony these men gave was a lie.”

50 So all the people hurried back to where the trial had taken place, and the officials said to Daniel, “God has given you wisdom beyond your years, so come and join us and explain to us what you mean.”

51 Daniel said to them, “Separate the two judges, and let me question them one at a time.”  52  Then Daniel called the first judge and said, “You wicked old man, now you will have to answer for all the sins you have committed.  53 You have been giving unjust sentences.  You have condemned the innocent and released the guilty, even though the Lord has said, “So not put an innocent person to death.”  54 Now if you really did see this couple making love, tell me, what tree were they under?”

“Under a small gum tree,” he answered.

55 Daniel said, “All right! That lie will cost you your life.  God’s angel has already been given orders to chop you in two.”

56 Then the first judge was led away and the second one was brought before Daniel.  “You are more like a Canaanite than a Jew,” Daniel said to him.  “This woman’s beauty has warped you judgment, and lust has corrupted your thinking. 57 You are used to having your way with the women of Israel because they have been afraid of you, but here is a Jewish woman, and she would not give in. 58 Now tell me what tree you saw them under.”

“Under a large oak tree,” he answered.

59 Daniel said, “All right! That lie will cost you your life; God’s angel is waiting with his sword in his hand, ready to cut you in two.  Then we shall be rid of you both.”

60 Then all the people shouted and praised God, who saves those who put their trust in him.  61 They turned against the two judges because Daniel had proved that they had lied under oath.  62 The Law of Moses states that people who give false testimony shall receive the same punishment that the accused person would have received.  And so the two judges were put to death, and the life of an innocent woman was saved.  63 Susanna’s parents, her husband, and all her relatives praised God because she had been proved innocent of the charges.  64 From that day on, Daniel was held in high regard.

 

This cry must be heard!!

 

God Bless the United States of America and you too.

FEBRUARY 2007

I come before your presence with thanks in my heart.   

Jesus said in Matthew 5:8  Blessed are the pure in heart:  for they shall see God. 

Matthew 5:16 says…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. 

Now those that have ears to hear let them hear.  So, let nothing separate us from the love of God, now this is the future Glory.  The Lord is more than a conqueror.  For Christ died for all the sin of the world.  We cannot be separated from God’s love and Jesus Christ our Savior.  God desire is to redeem all believers.  We cannot be frustrated because it is his purpose because life is in the Spirit. 

Romans 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 

Romans 8:30  Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 

Romans 8:31  What shall we then say to these things?  If God be for us, who can be against us? 

Romans 8:33 - 34  Who shall lay any thing, to the charge of God’s elect?  It is God that justifieth.  Who is he that condemneth?  It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 

I Timothy 2:5-7  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.  Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle,  ( I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;)  a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity. 

Back to Romans 8:35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (trouble) 

In Romans 8:37  in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 

Now who can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord? 

Matthew 11:29  Take my yoke upon, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 

But now days,  husbands and wives love for each other has become weaker and weaker not liken unto the Word of God.  It may be a few liken unto the Word of God. 

In Matthew 19:5 – 6 And said, For the cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.  What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 

Saints of God, we can’t hurt one unless we hurt the other according to the Word of God.  Look here in Genesis 29:31…And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb:  but Rachel was barren. 

Genesis 29:33  In that scripture says the Lord heard that I was hated.

Listen, I want to pause…God just spoke to me and said, “Ask the Lord to put the pieces back to together.”   And I know that He is talking to somebody right now and may God Word be a blessing unto you. 

In the scripture 29:33…Yes, the Lord saw that I (Leah) was hated, He hath therefore given me this son.  You see Jacob loved Rachel more than Leah.  So, Leah had 6 sons and one daughter. 

Genesis 30:22 – 25  And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb.  And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach:  And she called his name Joseph: and said, The Lord shall add to me another son.  And it came to pass, when Rachel had born Joseph, that Jacob said unto Laban, Send me away, that I may go unto mine own place, and to my country. 

So, let nothing separate us from the Love of God. 

God gave me this…St. John 1:6 – 9  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light that all men through him might believe.  He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 

God, Himself gave me this when I was laying in my bed after I came from my second oldest sister house.  I was reading the bible with her boys. 

God gave me Galatians 1:15. He (God) said that’s you girl!  With a loud voice, “that’s you girl!”  And I got up and got my bible and I read it. 

Galatians 1:15  But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, 

Galatians 1:16  To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood. 

Now I can tell you once and I can tell you twice, let us get our own self right in Jesus Christ. 

God Bless the United States of America and you too in Jesus name,

JANUARY 2007

I come before your presence with thanksgiving again because there is nothing hid which shall not be manifested.  Neither was anything kept secret but that it should come abroad.  And if any man have ears to hear let him hear. (Mark 4:22-23) Psalm 23 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest  a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. 

I Corinthians 2:7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory. 

II Corinthians said in 4:3  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that is lost. 

II Corinthians 4:4  In whom the god of this world hat blinded the minds of them which believe not , lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 

Matthew 10:26  Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. 

Now, we are going to talk about Jesus and the Law. 

Matthew 5:17  (Where Jesus says…)  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 

Matthew 5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 

Job 11:6  And that he would show thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is!  Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth. 

Psalm 30:5  “…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” 

Psalm 118:23 – 24  This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.  This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. 

Listen, Saints of God, some peoples belittle some peoples and some peoples look down on some.  But when trouble comes we all look up to God for help liken unto The Trade Centers in New York.   What happen then?  Everybody looked up to God for help and deliverance and all was on one accord saying God Bless the United States of America. 

But, God told me to warn the peoples a long time before it happened.  He showed me flags on the highway and on trucks and cars.  And the flags were waving in the air.  The Lord told me to put one in front of the pulpit in the church.  When you walk through the double doors in the sanctuary you can’t help for seeing the flag. 

But that same morning when it happened, I heard a voice saying, “seem like I can see everybody’s mother but I can’t see mine.”   I stopped and said to myself…my mother, my mother been dead since 1978.   Then I went in the kitchen and about that time there was a telephone call saying put on the TV hurry up!   So, I did.  So, I looked and looked.  Then a little white boy was crying and asked the police where is my mother?  I don’t see my mother.  Then I thought about what I heard…seem like I can see everybody’s mother but I can’t see mine.   And after then on the TV and radio I heard pray that God Bless the United States of America.  After then peoples started going to church and all the bibles were sold out.  Everybody was sad and thousand and thousand of peoples died that day and after.   But, what I am trying to tell you that seem like everybody was on one accord.  Looking up to God when we suppose to be looking up to God all the time. 

Phillipians 2:10 -11  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 

Acts 2:1  And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 

Acts 2:5  And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 

There was 18 or 19 different languages but all was in one accord like unto the Trade Center in New York when that horrible thing happened. 

Acts 2:11 – 12  says…Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.  And they were all amazed and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this? 

God did got our attention, Saints of God in… 

St. John 3:16 – 17  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should no perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent no his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 

Matthew 24:34 – 35 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 

Hebrew 4:9 – 16   There remaineth therefore a rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.  There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.  For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his works, as God did from his.  Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.  Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight:  but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.  Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.  For we have not a  high priest, which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

 

God Bless the United States of America and you too!

DECEMBER 2006

I come before your presence with thanksgiving again.  O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.  Psalm 105:1. 

Praise the Lord for his goodness. 

Psalm 92:1 – 2  It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:   To show forth thy loving-kindness  in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night. 

Saints of God let us not talk religion,  let us live religion.  Let us not act religion but be a doer of religion by keeping God commandments.  A test of true knowledge. 

I John 2:3  And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 

I John 2:5  But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected:  hereby know we that we are in him. 

So, don’t be like the rich ruler.   Matthew 19:20  The rich ruler saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up.  (He lied.)   

He did not murder, he did not commit adultery, he did not steal, he did not bear false witness, he honored his father and mother and thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself. 

Matthew 19:20  The young man saith to Jesus all these things have I kept form my youth up. 

You see he wanted to be save and do what he wanted to do.  But God was showing us the young man was still on the outside of life.  Pride, self-righteousness and outward of life rather than the inward nature.  The real problem was his luxuries and wealth.  So, he loved his self more than his neighbor.  He didn’t not keep the commandments.  (He lied).  For he went away sorrowful.  The Test of knowledge…what about you?  What about Ananias and Sapphira they lied too. 

Act 5:3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost and keep back part of the price of the land?  

When it was thine own?  So, he and his wife both lied and both fell dead.  But, the rich ruler went away from Jesus, sorrowful because he didn’t want to loose none of his possession.  So, Jesus said that it is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of Heaven. 

II Peter 2:12 – 13 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;  And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the daytime.  Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you: 

II Peter 2:14    “…beguiling unstable souls…” 

II Peter 2:15     “Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray,…” 

So, let us not under estimate the power of God.  I came up with one thing and I don’t believe I am wrong that nobody but nobody can make it out here alone. 

Ecclesiastes Chapter 3   A time for everything.  I thought on my great grand baby was lost at birth. 

Ecclesiastes Chapter 3:6  A time to get, and a time to lose: a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 

Ecclesiastes 3:2  A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. 

Ecclesiastes 1:16  I communed with mine own heart, saying , Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten  more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge. 

Ecclesiastes 1:18 For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow. 

I heard about a rich man wanting to experience the poor peoples and how the made it.  So, he got rid of all his riches and gave it away and all his money.  And he said what I am going to do?  So, he started to go around asking peoples for a job or cleaning up around the house to make a living and some money.  Some of the time he was hungry.  So, he went to a lady house and ask could you give me something to do, he said I will work for it.  So, she said go and gather my eggs for me.  I don’t have any money but I will give you some eggs.  So, she did.  She told him to come every other day to gather the  eggs.  So, little by little he got a hold on doing little jobs like milking cows.  He got a hold to enough to live with a little money.  So, he experienced how the poor people lived with meat, bread and eggs.  Some by asking peoples for food.  But he made it by hoeing, picking cotton, picking pecans, sweet potatoes, greens, peanuts, corn and picking berries.  Also, by gathering  pears, peaches, figs and anything he could canned  in the summer.  So, the rich man experienced a whole lot about the real poor peoples and how they made their living.  But God we all made it the rich and the poor,  for the earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof. 

Matthew 5:5  Blessed are the meek:  for they shall inherit the earth.

Psalm 49:1 – 2 Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:  Both low and high, rich and poor, together. 

Psalm 34:6  This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him,  out of all his troubles. 

Psalm 34:7 – 15      The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.  O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.  O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.  The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.  Come ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.  What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?  Keep thy tongue from evil, and they lips from speaking guile.  Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it;  The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. 

God Bless the United States of America and you too!!

NOVEMBER 2006

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praise unto your Holy Name. I’m just sitting in church thinking about how good God is and how God gave us all the great invitation. 

Matthew 11:28 -30  Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. 

Then I thought about how God worked a miracle for me when I got sick and my husband didn’t have any money. I prayed and that night I had a dream.  I dreamed that my name had been drawn from an apothecary but I didn’t know what an apothecary was.  So, I received a letter in the mail and said my name had been selected from a drug store but it was only for me and nobody else could use it.  Just send a dime and I will mail it to you every month with one dime.  You can cancel it when you get ready.  So, I did get it one time but I said Lord I can’t take these pills.  I haven’t been seen by a doctor.  Then I heard a voice saying things can happen miles and miles apart to do you good.  I was amazed to hear a voice like that.  Then I remembered reading in the bible that things can happen miles and miles apart to do you good.  Then I took one and one that next day and I was healed.  I never had to take anymore because I was healed. 

Mark 16: 15 – 18 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast our devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents and if they drink any deadly thing it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 

Another time I had  a toothache so bad that I had to go to the doctor and the dentist pulled it out.  Look like all my teeth were hurting.  So, he pulled it and packed it with gauze to stop my tooth from bleeding.  But after I got home God gave me a song…”You ought to been there when the Holy Ghost fell on me.”  And the Spirit came all over me.  So, I tried to sing with my mouth close and the gauze came out.  I tried to put it back in the hole where he had packed it but I couldn’t it was soaked with blood, anyway.  I didn’t want to sing because I thought air would get into it.  But the song was still in me and the Spirit of God was still on me.  So, I just song it anyway. 

“You oughta been there…You oughta been there…You oughta been there

When the Holy Ghost fell on me…

He made laugh and He made me cry and set my soul on hallowed fire…” 

And  I kept on singing all through the house and the Lord bless me.  So, my daughter, Bertha, was laying on the sofa jumped up and grabbed me around my waist and crying and all my children started singing too.  And the children that lived behind us came over and join in with us.  We had a good time.  The Hermon family and my family had children around the same ages anyway.   They loved to be with each other and go to the same house.  Oh, but that night their mother had to call for them.  They stayed about 12 o’ clock.  We were still singing and praising the Lord.  

Saints of God when you don’t have Jesus fully in your life, you are unstable and unbalance.  But, if you give your best, your best will come back to you.  And if you knoweth to do right and doeth it not, it is sin.  When you can’t sleep start counting your blessings. 

Matthew 19:16 – 22  The rich young ruler came and said unto him ( Jesus),  Good Master, what good thing shall I do , that I may have eternal life?  And he said unto him,  Why callest thou me good?  There is none good but one, that is, God:  but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.  He saith unto him, Which?  Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honor thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.  The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?  Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.  But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful. 

God was showing us the young man was still on the outside of life.  Pride, self-righteousness and outward duties rather than inward nature.  The real problem was  his  luxuries and wealth.  So, he loved himself more than his neighbor.  So, he did not keep the commandment for he went away sorrowful. 

Test of True knowledge…I John 2:3  And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 

In the Good News Bible reads…I John 2:3 – 6 If we obey God’s Commands, then we are sure that we know him.  If we say that we know him, but do not obey his commands, we are liars and there is no truth in us.  But if we obey his word, we are the ones whose love for God has really been made perfect.  This is how we can be sure that we are in union with God: if we say that we remain in union with God, we should live just as Jesus Christ did. 

So, what about you? 

God Bless The United States of America and you too!

October 2006

I come before your presence with thanksgiving in my heart. 

Psalm 119:11   Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. 

Psalm 119:12  Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statues. 

God told me the blessing is in the pressing.  A lot of people don’t press and don’t get blessed because they didn’t press.   

God told me on September 5, 2006 on a Tuesday morning about 10:30 and said it is a difference in pressing when you got to do  and when you don’t have to do but do it anyway. 

Like Phillipians 3:14 – 15  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus, Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. 

Blessings is in the pressing. 

Mark 3:10 – 11   For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.  And unclean spirits, when they saw him, as many as had plagues.  And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. 

Now you see, blessings in pressing. 

Mark 3:35  For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother. 

Luke 8:21   And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.     (Obey His Word) 

The best vitamin for a Christian is B1.  Listen, Saints of God, God has shown us many things for us not to trust in him.  Being obedient means a doer and a doer means faith, and faithful means a believer and a believer means trust.  Trust means action and action means getting the benefit or the result.  All of these work together with love.  Because love is the rap around. 

Because God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 

So, I finally got my PhD from the Lord.  “P” for Power.  Act 1:8  “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…”

“H” stands for Holy.  I Peter 1:16  says… Because it is written, Be ye Holy; for I am Holy.  (Holy is a clean life)

“D” stands for deliver.  Exodus 3:8  say “ I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of the land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey…” 

God’s sustaining Power. 

Psalm 121:1 -3  I will lift up mine eyes unto he hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.  He will not  suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. 

Nor sleep.  So cast your care upon the Lord because he cares, let us have faith. 

In Matthew 6:28 Jesus illustrates his point at his hand…bird of the air and the flower of the field.  The key point of this message is found in you.  Worry and anxiety are related to the length of ones life in not adding one cubit unto his stature. Meaning… Well where is our faith?  God takes care of us and not ourselves. 

Romans 9:15  For God saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 

Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 

Romans 8:7  “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God…” 

Matthew 6:26 – 30  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them, Are ye not much better than they?    Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?  And why take ye thought for raiment?  Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:  And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shell he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 

Lord, increase my faith like the elder in … 

Hebrew 11:1 – 2  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  For by it the elders obtained a good report.  

Jeremiah 3:14 – 15  Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:  And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding. 

Jeremiah 3:16  “And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those saith the Lord, they shall say no more,  The ark of the covenant of the Lord: neither shall it come to mind…” 

“Married unto me (Jesus)” means taking possession of you.  He rules us to serve God rightfully.  Headship over her (meaning the church) in her marriage relationship coming from the root (God).  The Lord is the only God.  Pastor means Israel leadership.  And how could you hear without a Preacher, and how could he preach except he being sent. 

God Bless the United States of America and you too!!

SEPTEMBER 2006

I come before your presence with Jesus on my mind thinking about the Word.  Peoples don’t take it serious and people don’t endure with the Word.  Like the Jewish Christians and the real Saints of God and their belief. 

In Genesis 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Genesis 1:2   And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the water. 

Genesis 1:3  And God said let there be light: and there was light. 

Genesis 1:4  and God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 

Darkness is not always a symbol of evil. 

Psalm 104:20  Thou makest darkness and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth and seek their meat. 

St John 1:4 -5   In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

And Jesus is called the Word of God which God the Father and the Son.   The first born child in a family is born before his family and his sister and brother.  Similarly, Christ existed before the creation and before the universe was created. 

Colossians 1:15  Who is the image of the invisible  God, the first-born of every creature: 

Colossians 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 

St. John 1:14   “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,…”

St. John 15:3  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 

So, peoples don’t take God word serious because God is Love. 

Revelation 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 

I John 4:7  (God is Love)  Let us love one another: for love is of God and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 

But Hosea 4:6  “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: …” 

Now II Timothy 3:2 - 5  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.  

But God has shown me this years ago…bibles with a red “X” on them.  The Lord told me that these peoples were really, really in the Lord but got in themselves.   

Colossians 3:2    Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 

Now, these things include knowledge of Christ and a closer fellowship with him. 

St. Matthew 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these tings shall be added unto you. 

Matthew 7:7 – 8  Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:  For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 

As for me Psalm 119:11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. 

Thy testimonies are my delight. 

Psalm 119: 17 – 18 Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.  Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law. 

Phillipians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 

This means that Christian life belongs to the Spiritual or Heavenly realm with Jesus and God.  It is pertaining to heavenly and not earthly things. 

Because our body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost. 

I Corinthians 9:13  - 14  Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple?  And they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?  Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel. 

I Corinthians 9:16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! 

Psalm 37:23  The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord:  and he delighteth in his way. 

Psalm 37:37  Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. 

So, let’s not under estimate the Power of God. 

God Bless The United States of America and you too!

AUGUST 2006

I come before your presence with thanksgiving but God get the praise.

On the prayer line, God showed me I was putting some lights in.  Then I started thinking Wisdom is God’s gift.

I Corinthians 2:6  Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

I Corinthians 2:7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 

I Corinthians 2:8  Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 

I Corinthians 2:9  But as it is written,  Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 

I Corinthians 2:10  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 

Now, the hidden truth, you remember?  I told you about my grandmother and the plantation and my grandfather.  The hidden truth. 

Mark 4:22   For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. 

Mark 4:23  If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. 

Mark 4:24  “…and unto you that hear more shall given.”

Matthew 10:26  Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. 

Listen, all the hidden things got to be known and uncovered. 

God told me to thank God for correction.  What about Christmas and carrying our children to a man instead of teaching our children about Jesus.  How He came into this world to save us from going to hell.  It’s not about toys and cakes and pies and gifts and good food and so on.  It’s all about Jesus!  It’s not about Santa Claus but Jesus!  Easter is not about clothes, candy, eggs, basket, rabbit and so on but Jesus!  Thanksgiving is not about turkey and dressing.  It was set aside to thank and praise God for his blessings right now …and we don’t have to bare the burden of the hot sun.  Like the pilgrims did…but when they gathered their crops early that year all of them gave thanks to God.  They had a feast with what they had raised from their crops.  They gave thanks to God and had a feast of Thanksgiving to God . From that year on they gave God thanks. 

Well, what about us?  Are we really thanking God like we should?  Let us thank God for correction because all these things had to be corrected. 

One lady came to the radio station one Sabbath Day where we do our broadcast for 1:30 pm until 2:30 pm.   She told us she heard us talking about Christmas wasn’t for God’s people and we had been tricked into the ways of the heathen.  She said I did it this year but I never do it again as long as I live. 

Also, God gave me a Chapter….Jeremiah 10:1  Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 

Jeremiah 10:2  Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 

Jeremiah 10:3   For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 

Jeremiah 10:4  They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 

Jeremiah 10:5  They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go.  Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. 

II Timothy 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 

Galatians 3:23  But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 

Galatians 3:24  Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 

Galatians 3:26  For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 

Galatians 3:28 – 29  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.  And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. 

Isaiah 55:11 – 12 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.   For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 

Thank God for correction so that we all can be happy! 

Luke 2:10  “…I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.” 

Which is Christ the Lord. 

Luke 2:14  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. 

John 1:23  He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah. 

St. John 1:28  These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing. 

St. John 1:29  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith,  Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

St. John 3:16  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 the Baptist testified of Jesus and so can I and what about you, saints of God? 

God is love.  John 15:12 – 13  This is my commandment, That ye love one another as I have loved you.  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 

God Bless The United States of America and you too!

JULY 2006

I come before you again with thanksgiving. 

Psalm 107:1  O Give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. 

Psalm 92:1-2  It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most  High:  To show forth thy loving-kindness  in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night. 

I was just thinking about a lady that called me from The Montgomery Advertiser Company.  She asked me could I tell her how people can have peace.   Sis. Germon and I were at church when she called.  So, I stopped writing and said yes, I can tell you how people can have peace.  First of all, you got to know yourself and avoid other people’s doings and goings.  And know what you …that you know…you will do well. 

Isaiah 26:3   Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:  because he trusteth in thee. 

Isaiah 26:7  The way of the just is uprightness:  thou, most upright,  dost weigh the path of the just.  (God gives them smooth roads) 

Isaiah 59:8   The way of peace they know not (wicked), and there is no judgment in their goings:  they have made them crooked paths:  whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace. 

Luke 2:10  And the angel said unto them (shepherd), Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 

Luke 2:11  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. 

Luke 2:13  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Luke 2:14  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

 

John 14:27   Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.    

That’s why Jesus said if you love me keep my commandments. 

Proverbs 21:23  Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue, keepeth his soul from troubles. 

That’s why the Lord say train up a child…refers to the Total Process of molding a child life.  The word “train” comes from the root word meaning…to put into the mouth and implies the idea condition.   The parent training should help children develop a task for things of God. 

Ephesians 6:1  Children, obey your parents in the Lord:  for this is right.

Ephesians 6:2  Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise. 

Proverbs 22:6   Train up a child in the way he should go:  and when he is old, he will not depart from it. 

Especially when he is grown and mature and the parents have educated them in their home. It forms the man throughout his life. 

Proverbs 21:30  There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the Lord. 

Proverbs 23:13  says…Withhold not correction from the child:  for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. 

Hosea 4:6   “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou lack of knowledge:  because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be mo priest to me….” 

Isaiah 48:18  O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments!  Then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea. 

So, that’s the reason why peoples and the Saints of God are not happy like they should.  Because they read the word and know the word and do like they want too.  What about all the food in the churches now days?  Peoples are not getting saved like old times because the seal has been eaten up the churches. 

God gave me this scripture one Sabbath night round about 11 o’ clock and told me to give Luke 19:45 to a young lady that sold in the church after Sunday School was over. 

The Cleansing of the Temple 

Luke 19:45  And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought; 

Luke 19:46   Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves. 

Luke 19:47  And he taught daily in the temple.  But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him, 

Luke 19:48  And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him. 

So, Saints of God the Word is not going to work for you until you work with the Word.   Just like your ground of soil.  It is not going to produce until you work it. 

St. John 12:24  Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone;  but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 

St. John 12:25  He that loveth his life shall lose it:  (Because you want to please your self, and do what you want to do.  Whether the scriptures says it not.  You will be disobedience to God’s Word.)  and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. 

Like when the Lord sent me to Hope Hull.  I had to die out of my self before I experienced the way of the Lord. 

John 24:26  If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am there shall also my servant be:  if any man serve me, him will my Father honor. 

St. John 24:32  And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. 

So, the Son of Man must be lifted up. 

God Bless The United States of America and you too!!

DRY BONES

 

I come before your presence with thanksgiving again.   But let us give God the Praise for in Romans 8:28 reads…And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 

Romans 8:31  What shall we then say to these things?  If God be for us, who can be against us? 

God brought The Valley of Dry Bones before me.  Then I looked at Proverbs 15:7 it reads…The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.

It was one Sunday, I went to Sis. Patterson’s church which was A.M.E. Zion.  It has been many years ago.  She is resting in the Lord now until the resurrection…the last day (St. John 11:24).   She asked me to preach for her Youth Day coming up in the next month.   So, I told her I would if it’s the Lord will.  So, on my way back home, I said Lord what am I  going to preach about on their Youth Day Program?  (not knowing that the Lord was going to speak to me)  The Lord said dry bones.  Then I said dry bones for the Youth Day?...for the children?  Then the Lord said if the parents are dry bones then the children are dry bones, also.

I am thinking about Romans 11:16 it states…For if the first fruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

That night.  I had a dream.  I dreamed that I was walking in a big field where a lot of peoples were dead laying all over the field.  Legs, head, arms and all parts of their bodies were scattered all over the field.  The parts were flesh and not dry. They were not joined together neither.  Hands, thighs and shoulders were all over the big field.  I was just walking through them looking at the so many peoples. While looking around I saw something like an open barn or some kind of building that was open.  There was a man in there and he said he kills so many every day around 3 o’clock (in the evening).  I looked at the man and he said he gives them anything they want before they die.  One man said I want me some beer.  I just looked at the man and went on walking.  I said to myself let me get out of this place but they had it all fenced in with barbwire.  The wire was so close and tight together that no one could get out.  Men were standing at every gate guarding them.  I asked one of the men would you let me out he said no I can’t let you out.  So, I went to another one and he said you can’t get out of here.  I got so scared and all I saw was an open big field and nothing but dead peoples.  Bones were everywhere but they had flesh on them.  I got so afraid.  So, I went to another gate in the back. It had a lot of pine trees everywhere and all sizes.  Then, I asked another man…please let me out.  He said I can’t let you out of here.  Then I got close to him and said Please! Please! Let me out!  Nobody will know it!  Then he opened it a little (not wide).  I squeezed through.  He said go! run! run!  So, I did.  I ran so fast because he freed me.  God freed me that’s why I’m free today.  

I preach when you want to hear it and preach when you don’t want to hear it.  God freed me back then.  God freed me when He called me to preach too.  When I was in the bathroom one morning God said, “You are not bound, you are not bound.”  Well, I knew that I wasn’t bound but I didn’t feel no different.  A week later God said, “You are free.”  I didn’t feel no different but I know what I heard.  Oh, but one night at All Nation Church, I felt so free that I took my handkerchief and threw it up and said “I am Free!!”  And I felt free and still is.

Romans 4:6  (God gave me this scripture Himself)  Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works.

Romans 6:14    For sin shall not have dominion over you:  for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

God did it all and nothing I did but God did it.  He did it so I can preach free and not to try and gain glory for myself.

I Corinthians 9:16 – 19  For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of:  for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!  ( all things to all men) For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.  What is my reward then?  Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.  For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

God Bless Then United States of America and You Too!

I come before your presence with thanksgiving again.  In the presence of the Lord our Savior.

 

I was thinking about the miracles of God.   Sis Germon and I was wondering why we don’t see these kind anymore.   Like in Numbers 22:21…God used Balaam’s ass against him for disobedience and how the angel stood in his path.

 

First of all in Numbers 22:23  “ And the ass saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way with his sword drawn in his hand and the ass turned in the field…”

 

Numbers 22:25   “…she thrust herself to the wall and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall…”

 

Numbers 22:26  And when the angel of the Lord went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.

 

Numbers 22:28  And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

 

Numbers 22:31   “Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand…”

 

Numbers 23:19   “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man…”

 

Numbers 23:20  Behold I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.

 

Hebrews 13:8  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.

 

Hebrews 13:9   “Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines.  For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace…”

 

Jesus was letting us know that he is a God that changeth not.

 

Isaiah 42:8    I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another,  neither my praise to graven images.

 

Malachi 3:6   For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

 

Well, what about the wall of Jericho.

 

Joshua 6:5  And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.

 

Yes, yes as soon as they heard the sound of the trumpet…a long note…the peoples gave a shout and the city wall collapsed.

 

Saints of God, I would like to see some of these great great miracles of today.  What about you?

 

What about Moses leading the peoples of Israel out of Egypt.

 

Exodus 14:13-16   And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will show to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more for ever.   The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.   And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward:  But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.

 

Numbers 23:19  remember…God is not a man that should lie….

 

Hebrew 13:8 Jesus is the same forever…..

 

Malachi 3:6  …I change not.

 

Well, I have seen some miracles in my life.  One of the members of our church,  Sis Ruth, had a granddaughter.  She had stepped on a nail and she brought her to the church.  She had asked me to pray for her.  She was going to take her to the doctor that Monday.  After we had communion, I went to the back of the church where she was sitting.  I was holding her leg out that the nail had stuck in.  I began to pray for her.  Then I noticed that one of her legs was longer than the other one.  I said Sis. Ruth one of her legs is shorter than the other.  She said she was already like that.  I wanted you to pray because she had stepped on a nail.  After I prayed, I held both of her legs side by side.  One was a lot longer than the other one.  Then I asked the Lord to grow the short leg even with the other one.  Not knowing that the Lord was going to answer the prayer so quickly.  She brought her grandchild back to the church the following Sunday.  She said look and told her to walk out.  Her leg was even.  Then I said come here and walk out again and she did.  God performed a miracle right at the church.

 

Proverbs 4:7  Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

 

Yes, wisdom is life and health.

 

The Lord woke me up on the morning of 5/2/06, I was saying out loud, “Enter thy gate with thanksgiving! Enter thy gate with thanksgiving! Enter thy gate with thanksgiving!”

 

Psalm 100:4-5  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.  For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

 

Look here,  God showed me an answer to a little problem.

 

Saints of God, now if you take up on a little thing…you will take up on a big thing.  So, don’t fight back!!!   When you began to know yourself, you began to find happiness.  Peoples take up on little things to start an argument or displease another person.  Now, if you have done a thing out of your heart and you know you are right…don’t fight back!   God said bless are the pure in heart for they shall see God.

 

Matthew 5:8-12  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.  Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.  Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.  Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

 

So, don’t fight back!  Know yourself.

 

Psalm 46:10  Be still, and know that I am God:  I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

 

Saints of God, how to please God is to keep on loving one another as Christians.  Then you will receive faith and action.  Those who live the way the Lord wants them to live will have self confidence.

 

God Bless The United States of America and you too!!

APRIL 2006

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises before God. 

I was just thinking about hearing and doing the Word of God makes the difference. 

St. James 1:22-23    But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.  For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man, beholding his natural face in a glass. 

Romans 11:16  For if the first fruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. 

Saints of God a man in his sins is compared to a serpent.  The stress is on the church as unity. 

I Corinthians 5:6  Your glorying is not good.  Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 

This means if the Pastor is holy the whole church should be holy because he is preaching and teaching holiness to the whole congregation. 

I Corinthians  6:19-20    What?  know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

God gave me, “Mark My Word.”  He also gave me Galatians 1:15-16  But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood. 

If you don’t use the Holy Ghost, you will loose it. 

God’s own people…I Peter 2:9-10  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous 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. 

Then I thought about when Sis. Germon and I went to a Sunday Night Church Service at Pastor Pickney Church.  On the way back home my car stopped.   We didn’t know what to do and the cars were regularly passing.  We were just sitting in the car praying.  Finally, one of the cars that had past by us came back.  He drove right behind us and we didn’t know what to think or to do.  Two young men got out and came on the side of us.  He said you all must be some women of God because the Lord told us to go back and help them women.  We didn’t have to get out of the car at all.  They did something under the hood and fixed it.  He started the car to running.

He said the Lord told us to help you ladies with your car.  Then they said we will see you now and drove off.  We said God bless you all and we pulled off. 

Let me tell you Saints of God…God knows how to take care of His own. 

Psalm 46:1-5  God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore will not we fear though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;  Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shade with the swelling thereof.  There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.  God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved:  God shall help her, and that right early. 

Psalm 46:10-11  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.  The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. 

So let us be still and know that God is our refuge and strength a very present help when we are in trouble.  It contains 3 key ideas.  First, God is a place of security when all else is insecure.  Second, God protects His city and gives the peoples assurance and comfort.  Third,  all men are called upon him to consider God’s works and submit to his authority.   If God be for you who can be against you? 

Psalm 30:5  “…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” 

I thank God for correction.  God gave me on the prayer line on April 11, 2006, “Thank God for correction.”  This means a change in things or to correct a mistake.  It means to change from wrong to right or correct a fault or to correct or improve something correctly. 

I’m thinking about how God sent me to a church one Sunday night about 7 o’clock on Hanna Street. Sis Germon and I wondered what are we going there for.  When we got there some of the peoples were wondering what had happen to the Pastor and some of the members were wondering too.  So, we sat around in church.  After than one of the members came in to tell everyone that the Pastor and her husband went on a one or two week vacation.  The Pastor didn’t tell the members about it and they came out like usual.  So,  somebody saw me and knew that I was a minister and ask me will I preach for them.  So, I said I would.  They started devotion service and about that time two more preachers came in and ask about the Pastor.  Somebody told them that the Pastor was gone on vacation and then they said will go on to another church.  Then I ask them will they stay here with us.  Some of the peoples ask will they stay here with us and said we will have a good time tonight.  But, they said we are going to another church and they left. 

But, we had a good time shouting and praising the Lord. 

So, Saints of God let us obey God rather than man and what God has for you it is just for you.  The Love of God hides a multitude of faults and covers all sins. 

Psalm 24:1  The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

I come again before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God.   God…who made the heaven and earth and all there in. 

The Exhortation to Obedience 

It is two paths to choose from and to plan evil is as wrong as doing it.  But, the path of the just is a shining light that shineth more and more unto a perfect day. (Proverbs 4:18)  

Proverb 15:32  He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.  

So, we are going to talk about blessed are the righteous. 

Psalms Chapter 1 

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. 

But in Revelation 1:3 it reads…Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. 

So, Moses when he was come to years in Hebrew 11:24 & 25 …choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. 

The Lord gave me the straight path and the broad road that leads to destruction. 

God also showed me that the Saints of God are  in the world but not of the world. 

II Corinthians 5:17 – 18   Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all thing are become new.  And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation. 

II Corinthians 5:20-21  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 

So, Saints of God let God change you from all of your enemies so that you can be His friend. 

Yes, a friend. 

Before my husband died our insurance man kept coming back.  I kept telling him I didn’t have any money.  I told him to come back when my husband get home in the evening time.  He did.  Virge, my husband, and him talked good together outdoors.  But, the next week the insurance man came right back.  So I got tired of him asking me for the insurance money.  So, I went and borrowed 3 or 4 dollars from Mr. Johnny to pay on the policy.   But, he would still come back every week.  So, I got my gun and loaded it and set it behind the door. That morning the insurance man along with another man came knocking at the door.  When I went to the door they talked to me so good.  He said Mrs. Perdue, I understand and many times I took money out my pocket to keep it going.  Because you have been in this policy for a long time, you and your family, I just hate to drop it.  Your husband told me how he had been sick and told me about his condition.  That is why I kept coming back.  Both of the men talked that day so good to me.  I was ashamed and embarrassed.   Sorrow was in my heart.  But, because God loved me, He had the insurance men to put money on my policy to keep from dropping it.  When my husband died I had money to bury him with.   So, after everything was all over,   I just thanked him and thanked him. Because if he would have dropped it, we wouldn’t had the money to bury him with. 

But, everything work together for good to them that love the Lord. 

Phillipians  4:4  Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. 

Think on these thing … “whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure and lovely and whatsoever of a good report, and if there be any praise, think on these things…”  (Phillipians 4:8) 

And now I’m sitting at the church, Sis. Germon and I.   I am thinking on what the Lord has done for me.  So, God knows how to take care of His own and you too.   So, look and see what the Lord has done.  He has been so good to me so long even when I wanted to do what was wrong.  He was still watching over me on his throne.  He never, never left me alone. 

God Bless The United States of America and you too!

FEBRUARY 2006

Lord, I come with thanksgiving and praises  before you, your peoples, the one body and its many members.  Because the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. 

While sitting at Baptist East Hospital waiting for my grand daughter to be delivered and hoping to have a great grandson later on (if it’s the Lord’s will), I was so happy.  The Lord is the center of my joy.  This was brought to my remembrance. 

I remember long years ago, the Lord said, “You are going to get some money today.” I was living on a plantation picking cotton and picking up pecans for a living.  Money was scarce.   But, the Lord said, “You are going to get some money today.”  I could not see where I was going to get some money from.   The same day the Insurance man came to collect my money for my premium.  I paid once a month.  So, I got my book and gave it to him.  He looked at it and looked at his book and said you don’t owe me anything.  Then I said I owe you for this month.  You know you come once every month.  So, he took the money in his hand and after than he gave the money back to me.  He checked his book again and said I can’t take your money because it has already been paid.  He said I just can’t take it.  He put the money back in my hand and said I’ll see you next month and he left.  I said to myself I know I owe for this month and I don’t want the months to double up on me.  Then, I wondered what happened.  While I was thinking about it, the Lord said I told you that you were going to get some money today.  I started smiling because I remembered.  The Lord said I was going to get some money today and I did.  He gave me the money back what I supposed to have paid out.

God is good and his mercy endureth for ever.  Another time my washing machine was broken.  I let a man checked it out to see how much he will charge to fix it.  He said $19.00.  So, I said come back the first of the month when I get my welfare check.  So, I saved the $19.00 because I needed my washing machine fixed so bad.  I had to wash clothes in the bath tub on a rub board for nearly a month.  I called him and he came back to my house and fixed my washing machine and I gave him the $19.00 and he left.  I went right on and started washing.  I was so happy.   About 5 minutes later there was a knock at my door.   When I went to the door it was the same man that fixed my washing machine.  He said I had to come back because I just couldn’t take all of your money.  He handed me 5 or 6 dollars back and left.  I was happy again. 

Psalm 18:3  I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised:  so shall I be saved from mine enemies. 

Proverbs 15:32-33  He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.  The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honor is humility. 

Matthew 6:8  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 

Phillipians 4:19-20  But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 

Psalm 37:1-5  Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.  For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.   Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.  Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. 

Leviticus 10:10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean. 

John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 

John 15:3  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 

This Cry Must Be Heard!

Mark My Word!!

JANUARY 2006

I come before your presence with thanksgiving again.

It is a good thing saints that God knows how to treat you and also how to greet you.  He didn’t have to bless us but He did.  He didn’t have to save us but He did.  He didn’t have to love us but He did.  He woke us up this morning.   He started me on my way.  He didn’t have to do it but He did.

Proverbs 3:5-7     Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.   In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  Be not wise in thine own eyes:  fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

Wisdom is life and health and exhortation to obedience and God has the last saying.

Ecclesiastes 1:17  And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly:  I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.

Why?

Ecclesiastes 1:18  For in much wisdom is much grief:  and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

You see, I am determined to learn the difference between knowledge and foolishness.  

The more you worry the more it hurts.

The pleasures of this world does you no good.

But, there is a time for everything.

Ecclesiastes 3:1  To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.

I Corinthians 12:13-14  For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.  For the body is not one member, but many.

The reward of healing is wisdom.   So, get wisdom and above all get understanding.

Proverbs 15:7  The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of foolish doeth not so.

The wise get connection with the Saints everywhere like on the internet. 

You see your life in Christ makes you strong and His love comforts you.  The God of Peace is far beyond man understanding and will keep your heart and minds on Jesus.    Because Jesus is the center of my joy.

Phillipians 3:13  Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before me.

Meaning:   Forgetting the past and looking to what lies ahead and not in the tradition of the past.

Now, I hope all the mature Christians will see eye to eye with me on these things.  Jesus is saying pattern your lives after mine.  Who else lives up to this example?

According to John 14:12  Verily, verily, I say unto you,  He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also:  and greater works that these shall he do:  because I go unto my Father.

St. John 14:15  If ye love me, keep my commandments.

So, loves makes the difference.

St. John 14:21   He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

St. John 15:3  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Phillipans 4:8   Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,   whatsoever things are just,  whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are  lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Proverbs 16:7  When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

DECEMBER 2005

I come before your presence with thanks and praises unto God 

I was just cooking and thanking God because He has been so good to me and my children.  When I was 13 years old I used to cook my mama’s chickens. We had lots of chicken and she would never miss them.  I would watch my mother every time she cooked.  I would sit in the kitchen door and watch everything she did. 

So, one day I told my sister, Mahalia, to let us cook a cake.  She said alright.  So, I told her to get an egg and a little over one cup of sugar and she did.  She put it all in a bowl.  I told her to get some baking soda and butter.  I told her also to add a little over 2 cups of flour.  She placed all the ingredients into one bowl and added some flavor.  I whipped it all up like I saw mama did.   That old wood stove cooked our cake.  It was brown and looking good.  We ate some and hid the other under the house until mama went back to the field. 

But one day my sister told on me.  She went and sat at the kitchen door.  I tried to get her to come and shoot marbles but she wouldn’t.  She said I don’t want to play.  I tried everything to get her from the door but I couldn’t.  When I knew one thing mama was calling me.  She said you cooked a cake didn’t you!  I said mama, Mahalia got everything.  Mama said she told me she did but you told her to get everything and how much!  So, mama got that rope and whipped me real good.  I had whelps all over my legs and thighs.  That stop me from cooking anymore! 

I asked my mother to let me go to the cotton field with her and help her on her row.  So, they gave me a little hoe and I was so happy.  Mr. Buddy Moses was talking to mama.  He said I’ll go and put her name on the payroll and she can carry a row by herself. So, he did.  I was getting $13.62 cents a week like the rest of the peoples.  After then, the cotton got real grassy and I told mama I wanted to go home.  She said you can’t go. I was sorry then I wanted to come to the cotton field.  But God bless me through my singing. I got so I couldn’t keep up.  I was far behind.  I just started singing and singing until I felt good.  Then I heard someone said, “help that gal up.”  They helped me up where they could hear my singing.  Every time I get behind I started singing and somebody would say the same thing, “help that gal up.”

I can do all things through Christ the strengthen me. 

Freely you give freely you will receive your blessing.

Psalm 100:1 -3    Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.  Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Psalm 101:1  I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee,  O Lord, will I sing.

I can do all things through Christ that strengthen me.

Acts 20:35   I have shewed you all things how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, it is more blessed to give than to receive.

So, I blessed the peoples in the cotton field baring the hot sun. I got blessed by giving and sharing the gift of praise what the Lord has given me.  By singing unto the Lord and lifting Him up.  The Lord said if you lift thy Savior up He will draw all men unto you.

Psalms 105:1-4 O Give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.  Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of his wondrous works.  Glory to his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.  Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

Praise the Lord Saints!

NOVEMBER 2005

I come before your presence and praising God for another opportunity.

Life is about wisdom and obedience.

Psalm 150:6   Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord, Praise ye the Lord.

Proverb 1:5  A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.

Jeremiah 31:22  How long wilt thou go about, O thou  backsliding daughter?  For the Lord hath created a new thing in earth, A woman shall compass a man.

The Good News Bible says (Jeremiah 31:22)    How long will you hesitate, faithless people?  I have created something new and different as a woman protecting a man.

Exodus 1:22  And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast in the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.

Matthew 2:16   Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof,  from two years old and under….

Herod was murdering all the young male children.  He had 10 wives.  He executed one of his wives and his three older sons.  Herod was suspicious that someone might usurp his throne.  Herod was very cruel because of his hatred and ambition.

Matthew 2:17-18  Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,  In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Jeremiah 31:15-16  Thus saith the Lord;  A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.  Thus saith the Lord; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears:  for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the

 Lord;…

In Jeremiah 31:22 that’s when the Lord said He created a new thing in earth.  The Lord said it not me!  Like unto the woman at the well.   When Jesus said He had a need to go through Samaria.  He had a need to bless the men of that city when the woman told the truth that she had no husband.  In St. John 4:17  Jesus said unto her, Thou has well said, I have no husband.

Now the living water refers to the Holy Spirit.

St.  John 7:38-39   He that believeth on me, as the scriptures hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.  (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive:  for the Holy Ghost was not yet given: because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Act 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:…

When the woman received the Holy Spirit……in St. John 4:28-29  The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way in the city, and saith to the men,  Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

St.  John 4:39   And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified,  He told me all that ever I did.

St. John 4:42  And said unto the woman, Now we believe…

This service is well pleasing to God.

Hebrews 13:1-2   Let brotherly love continue.  Be not forgetful to entertain strangers:  for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

Three angels visited Abraham.

Genesis 18:2  And he lift up his eyes and looked, and , lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground.

Phillipians 4:4   Is telling us to rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Phillipians 4:3  “…true yoke fellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel.

Phillipians 3:17-18    Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.  For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

Phillipians 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.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Psalm 27:4  One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.

May God add a blessing to the reader of His Word.

God Bless The United States of America.

OCTOBER 2005

I come before your presence and before God with thanksgiving in my heart.

For He saved me.  He didn’t have to do it but he did.  Not because I had been so good but because He has been so good to me.  He looked beyond my faults and saw my need to be a blessing to others as well as myself. 

Phillipians 2:10-11   That at the name of Jesus  every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

So, you see Saints of God by the Word thou shall be justified and the Word thou shall be condemned.

Proverbs 3:13   Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

Proverbs 3:15  She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her (wisdom).

God blessing plan is laid out for His peoples.  Yes, I remember when Sis Germon and I would go missioning every Sabbath about 8:30 a.m.  We would go the Nursing Home, hospitals and in homes for bible classes.  We would stay all day until late over in the evening.  God told us to drink some V-8 vegetable juice every Sabbath morning.   God would heal and deliver and open blinded eyes.   The people that had strokes began to move their leg better than I could move mine.  All the peoples were amazed.

But, one Sabbath morning I was really shocked.  I had got in my car and looked on the side of my yard and there was a dry tree.  I got back out and went over to the tree to see was it dry all the way and it was.  Then I said to myself,  I’m going to cut it down with my ax because I don’t want no dry tree in my yard.   But early that Sunday morning, I heard a voice said look out the window. Then it kind of rush me…look out the window!...look out the window!  I jumped and looked out and the Lord directed my eyes right to the tree and it was already down.  So, God let me know if you live right He will give you the desires of your heart.  Ain’t it amazing what God can do!!!

God gave me this also about The Universal Church, Joint Church and All Nation Church.  This saying goes out to its one body and its many members.  

Ezekiel 37:16-17    Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:  And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. 

I want to share this also with you.

I know what God can do.   I remember one morning on the prayer line.  I had a cold and I was hoarse too.   I was already using cod liver oil tablets the chewable kind.   But, one morning on the prayer line I saw a bottle just dangling in the air and it came down low.  I saw the name Quibb cod liver oil the liquid kind.  I went and bought some the next day.  I got it and took it and the cold and the hoarseness went away and I was healed.

Phillipians 4:19-20   But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever.  Amen.

Ecclesiates 4:12   And if one prevail against him,  two shall withstand him,  threefold cord is not quickly broken.

 

I John 2:26-27  These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.   But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing  teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

 

Enabling the believer to distinguish between truth and error and giving the believer knowledge of God.   The believer will know how to do the work of God and walk in the way of God.   Christians should act on the anointing that they have received from the Lord. 

God Bless The United States of America and You too!!

Amen.

SEPT 2005

I come before your presence with thanksgiving.  Let us give God the praises.

Psalm 34:1   says… I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 

Psalm 34:4  I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. 

The Way of Love

I Corinthians 13:1  Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

I Corinthians 13:3  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

The Way of Love

Jesus was explaining that the kingdom of God is like a Heavenly Banquet at the end of age.   A great supper stands for a Communal Celebration of His Salvation.   The halt, blind, poor and the maimed and all the outcasts must hear the Gospel.  Where God was extending His Invitation and He also able to isolate peoples from His benefits of His grace.   Other words, Jesus was teaching us to love one another as he pointed it our in Luke 14:33.

Luke 14:33  So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

Jesus was only saying none of you can be my disciple unless you give up every thing you have.  Jesus was showing love to all people and teaching of his concern for every individual.

Luke 14:16  (shows us an example)  A certain man made a great supper and bade (invited) many and sent his servant at supper time to say to them that are bidden (invited) come for all things are now ready.   They all with one consent began to make excuse.  The first said unto him that I have bought a piece of ground and I must need to go and see it.  I pray thee have me excused.  Well another said I have bought five yoke of oxen and I have to go and prove them.  I pray thee have me excused.  Well another said I have married a wife and therefore I cannot come.  So that servant returned and showed his lord these things.  Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant go out quickly into the street and land of the city.  (You see God is concern about all peoples).  The master continued to say bring in hither the poor, maimed the halt and the blind.   The servant said Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded and yet there is room.  Then the Lord said unto his servant, go out into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in that my house may be filled.

St. John 3:16  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.

St. John 3:17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Isaiah 53:3  He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Isaiah 53:4   “Surely he hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows:…”

Saints of God He was wounded for us and for our transgression.  Transgression means disobedience unto the Word of God and know it.  Yes, He was even bruised for our iniquities meaning our sins.   Saints of God let us love one another and show compassion like as now.  God is trying to tell us something by that great storm and through that great disaster that went through New Orleans and Mississippi.

This cry must be heard!!

LOVE

 
AUGUST 2005

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God.

I was sitting at the church thinking how much love God has for us.  Then God gave  me Deuteronomy 32:11.  It tells how God took care of Moses when he ran away from Pharaoh into the wilderness.  God still loved him.

Deuteronomy 32:11 - 12  As an eagle stirrreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:  So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.

“Where there is love…Where love is the heart is light…Where love is the day is bright!”

I Corinthians 13:1  Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or tinkling cymbal.

Where there is love there is a song.  A song to help me along my way when things seems to go wrong.  My  mother used to sing too when  I was a little girl.  I used to watch her content.  When something seems to trouble her or went wrong she would sing.   She would sing…”Lord, have mercy…Lord, have mercy…Save, me Lord”.  She would also sang another verse…”Lord, I am dying…Lord, I am dying…Save, me Lord.”  Then I would say Lord don’t let my mother die!  I would watch her.  She will get the broom and start sweeping the porch off.  God would bless her every time she would sing and sweep the porch off.

“Where there is love there is a smile…to make your living seem more worthwhile.”

I Corinthians 13:2  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity (love), I am nothing .                                                                                        

“Where there is love there is quiet and peace and all turmoil seems to cease.”

I Corinthians  13:3 - 4And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.

Love changes darkness into light

And make your heart beat just right

Blessed are they that walk in Love

And God get the glory from above

When men walketh with God again

There will be peace on earth and good will towards all men.

I was still thinking about the love that God has for us and how it is important to love one another.  I Corinthians 13:13   And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three, but the greatest of these is charity (love).

When I looked at Phillipians 2:5… it says…Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.

Phillipians 2:7  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men (Jesus).

St. John 1:14  “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…”

Phillipians 2:8 – 11  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:  That  at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Shining as Lights of the World

God wants his peoples to shine as light in this world.

Phillipians 2:15  “…in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world . (Meaning:  The World of Sin).

Listen saints of God,  the Lord told me that peoples are falling short of God’s Love.  Some have given up on the church but don’t want to give up on God.  God also told me that the Victory is in the Lord.  He told me that you can’t live in luxury always.

The Rich Man and Lazarus

Luke 16:19  There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

Luke 16:23  And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

So, do right and right will follow you and love the Lord and the Lord will love you back.

God Bless the United States of America and You Too!

JULY 2005

                                     PASTOR’S NOTE

I come before your presence with thanksgiving but God get the praises. 

I was just sitting at church writing and thinking about the goodness of Jesus.  He brought this to my remembrance.  It was during Easter time.  I was working at the YMCA.  The teachers at the YMCA told the children to wear their Easter clothes or bring them so they can model in.  So, they did.  Some of the mothers bought them some new clothes.  After lunch, we wanted to see the 2  best dress ones.  The 2 best dress ones will get a prize.

So, the next day the teachers cut out a big “V” out of paper so that the children can walk and model on in the gym.  The program is to take place the next day.  They said Sister Perdue we want you to sing for us before we start our program.  I said OK and I went into the classroom and that teacher said are you going to sing for us?  And right then God gave me a song…..”What you’re going to do when the world is on a fire, What you going to do?   You may run to the rock to hide your face but the rock will cry out No Hiding Place!   Now what you’re going to do when the world is on fire?  What you’re going to do?...”    In this song it tells us about liars, gamblers and the saints and so on.

The next day I was already dressed for work in my white shoes and my white dress because I was a cook.  God spoke and told me to carry my Blue robe and the white collar.  God also told me to carry my rod which He has given me. When time for the Program to start the children parents got them ready.  They got the big “V” ready. All the children looking so pretty with their little pretty Easter clothes on.  I had on my blue robe and white collar.   The white collar had 2 little white bows on it.  I was waiting for my name to be called.  So, they said where is Sis. Perdue?  And somebody said they called you.  I stepped out with my rod in my hand and my robe on.  All the teachers and the children were looking because all they seen me wear was white dresses and white shoes.  I walked out and said I know this song is not appropriate for this occasion but God gave me this song.  Then I began to sing …” What you’re going to do when this world is on a fire…”

Their contents wasn’t pleasant at all.   When it was all over about 2 teachers said they enjoyed the song.  So, God got the Victory that day.  God gave us something to think about because God is telling us something.  Prepare for war in the time of peace.

I Thessalonians 5:2   For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

2 Peter 3:10   But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat,  the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

God has given another song.  He gave me this song when the tragedy happen at the Trade Centers in New York.  It is called “The Earthquake and The Flood Song”.  

           

“The Earthquake and The Flood Song”

 

OOH LOOK AT THE PEOPLE

STANDING AT THE JUDGEMENT GOT TO BE TRIED

I LOOKED OVER YONDER I SAW SOME DRESSED IN WHITE

THEY LOOKED LIKE THE CHILDREN OF THE ISRAELITES

 

OOH LOOK AT THE PEOPLE

STANDING AT THE JUDGMENT GOT TO BE TRIED.

I SAW SOME STANDING AND SOME ON THEIR KNEES

THEY WAS ASKING THE LORD TO HAVE MERCY PLEASE

STANDING AT THE JUDGEMENT GOT TO BE TRIED

 

I SAW SOME CRYING AND SOME WERE LOOKING SAD

STANDING AT THE JUDGEMENT GOT TO BE TRIED

SEEM LIKE THIS THE WORSE DAY WE EVER HAD

STANDING AT THE JUDGEMNT GOT TO BE TRIED

 

ONE OF THESE MORNING AND IT WON’T BE LONG

YOU GONNA LOOK FOR ME AND I’LL BE GONE

STANDING AT THE JUDGEMENT GOT TO BE TRIED

 

WHAT THEY DOING YALL

STANDING AT THE JUGEMENT GOT TO BE TRIED  (Keep repeating)

 

This is only partial of the song that God gave me.

 

This cry must be heard.

JUNE 2005

I come before your presence again with thanksgiving in my heart to share God goodness unto you all.

Be bless according to Luke 6:38  “ Give, and it shall be given unto you…”

So, pass this on to your love ones and friends and so forth.  You can be blessed.

Look  here….”good  measures, pressed down and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

God gave me a star in a vision on the prayer line.  God showed me an American Star on June 9, 2005.

II Peter 1:19  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

II Peter 1:21  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

And if we follow the star we will get to Jesus.

Matthew 2:9   When they had heard the king (Herod) they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

Saints of God we all got to obey God in order to be saved.

Matthew 2:10  When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

I wanted to share this with you because God has shown me an American Star.  First, God been telling us to pray that God Bless America.  Now, He’s telling us to pray that God Bless the United States of America.

Ephesians 4:13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

Then we will have a new life in Christ.  Well, what about  Ephesians 4:3-7   Edeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  There is one body, and one Spirit in the bond of peace.  There is one body, and one Spirit, even as we are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.  But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of gift of Christ.

Saints of God let us have life in the Spirit of God and forgive yourself.  And you will forgive others, love others and you will love yourself.

Proverbs 24:7    “Wisdom is too high for a fool…”

Proverbs 24:5     A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.

St. John 14:23  Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words:  and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Listen Saints of God a rebelling spirit will keep you from praising the Lord, and shouting because action speaks better than words.

Psalm 8:2  “Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings has thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, …..”

Romans 9:1  I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost.

Proverbs 10:21  The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.

For God said One Body and many members.  God peoples are scattered all over the world, so I am writing to reach my sisters and brothers in Christ Jesus.  So, Lord if I can help somebody in their distress and I can make their burdens a little bit less and spread more of your happiness…Lord show me how.

St. John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whososever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The Great Invitation.

Matthew 11:28  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Yes, God will give you rest.  God will give you Peace.  God will give love for him to keep his commandment.  God will give you joy and happiness.  Everything we need God got it.

Isaiah 1:19  “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land…”

If we don’t be obedient to the Word of God, sin lodges in our bodies just like tea bags.  It needs to come out.  Our life and lifestyles needs to be sweetened up.  Yes! Yes! We can have the good of the land.

God Bless the reader and hearer of His Word.

MAY 2005

I come before you with praises and thanksgiving but God get the Glory. 

God gave Moses an assignment to bring the children of Israel from down in Egypt.  The birth of the nation Israel and her deliverance from Egypt pointed toward the great deliverance from the bondage of sin provided by the Messiah. 

In the Passover, a lamb without blemish was selected and killed.  The blood was applied to the door post of the houses.  The lamb was roasted and eaten with unleaven bread and bitter herbs.  This illustration came when John the Baptist introduced Jesus to the nation.  He recognized Christ as the fulfillment of the typical Passover, a lamb.  The Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world.  Now many Christians don’t recognize the fulfillment of the Passover sacrificed by Christ.  Keep the feast by living a sincere and a truthful life.

I Corinthians 5:6   Your glorying is not good.  Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 

John the Baptist introduce Jesus to the nation so he can leaven the whole lump.  So, that everybody can be saved.  One body and many members. 

I Corinthians 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavended.  For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us with His blood. 

John 1:29  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 

John 19:14 And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

St John 19:15   But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him.  Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. 

Now we have two Passover: the old and the new. 

Well, Christ is our Passover. 

We have two unleaven: the old and the new. 

Matthew 16:6   Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.  (Swelling words) 

We have two covenants:  the old and the new. 

Similarities between the two covenants: 

1.  Both are called covenants

2.  Both was ratified with blood

3.  Both were made concerning the Law of God because Moses kept God commandments down in Egypt

4.  Both were made with the people of God

5.  Both were established upon promises

The old covenant called the first covenant was a temporary compact.  Dedicated with blood of animals.  It was established on promises to the people.  It had no mediator.  It had no forgiveness of sin.  The law was written on the table of stones.

The new covenant called the second covenant is everlasting.  It was ratified with the Blood of Christ.  It is a better covenant.  It is established upon the promises of God.  Now we have a mediator and forgiveness of sins.   The Law is written in our hearts.  It was ended on the cross when He said “It is Finished.”

Ecclesiastes 12:14  For God shall bring every work into judgment with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

I Corithians 6:19  Whatknow ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

That all men are created equal and one blood He shedded for all.

Isaiah 53:4  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Isaiah 53:5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Together we stand and divided we will fall.

Ezekiel 37:15-17  The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,  Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:    And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.

Judah was the cause Joseph was delivered.  Joseph was the cause that Jacob (who is called Ephraim) and Jacob sons (the 12 tribes) were saved through the famine.

This cry must be heard.

JESUS CAME TO GIVE LIFE

 
APRIL 2005

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God.

O give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name.   Make known his deeds among the people.

Psalm 19:14  Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalm 104:34   My meditation of him shall be sweet:  I will be glad in the Lord.

Saints…disobedient people refuse to receive correction even when it comes from God.

Jesus was telling the disciples in St. John 15:1  I am the vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  Jesus was explaining to his disciples his mission to the world.  The Spiritual relation to Him which they were to sustain.  He illustrated the lesson.  The moon is shining bright.   It reveals Him as a flourishing grapevine.  Drawing attention of the disciples using Himself as a symbol.  Jesus says I am the true vine.  He didn’t choose the graceful palm, the lofty cedar or the strong oak.  They require no support.  They can stand alone.  Jesus takes the vine to represents himself.  Jesus was dependant upon the divine power of God.

St John 5:30-31   I can of mine own self do nothing:  as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just;  because I seek not mine own will, but the will of my Father which hath sent me.  If I bear witness of  myself, my witness is not true.

St John 15:2-4  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away; and beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  Abide in me, and I in you.   As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

St. John 15:7  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

St. John 15:11  These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

If we abide in Jesus we suppose to change into a new life like Nicodemus.

St. John 3:3   Jesus answered and said unto him,  Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

St. John 3:5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, He cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

A person is born lly of the Spirit of God.  This is what brings a change in our lives.

St. John 7:49  But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.

Cursed because they are without understanding.

Nicodemus got saved and he was a man of the Pharisee.  He went to Jesus by night.  He had to be born again.

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free,  there is neither male nor female:  for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

This cry must be heard!

MARCH 2005

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God.   I would like to share with you a letter that my granddaughter in California wrote to me.  It states.. 

Isaiah 42:12    Let them give glory unto the Lord, and declare his praise in the Island.

Granddaughter’s Experience For Young People

Because of the episodes in my life, I have become a stronger person.  I feel that the struggles that I went through and the struggles I took my mother through were the things that have made me strong.

My grandmother in Montgomery, Alabama also helps me to develop mentally.   She is someone that I can always talk to and share my most deepest feelings with.  I like talking to my grandmother and spending time with her.

I remember a special time when I was six years old.  My mother sent to Alabama to live with my grandmother.  She taught me lots of things like how to pray, sing and be thankful for what God has given me.   My grandmother would always read her Bible to her grandchildren.  She would give us examples in the Bible of situations that happen to us in our everyday living.  When it came time for me to come back to Los Angeles, I cried.   I cried because I didn’t want to leave but I also wanted to be with my mom.

Maybe that is why my mother is so admirable to me, because she is a lot like my grandmother.   My grandmother has passed on some special traditions and wisdom to my mother.  These have also been shared with me by my grandmother and my mother.  As I grew older, I understood more and more what they were trying to tell me.  I can use what I have learned to help me grow and I could give good advice to my friends.

Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

 

Ephesians 6:4

And, ye fathers provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

 

Poem

 

I THOUGHT...

 

I thought I was real kool

when me and my friends ditched school.

 

I thought I was smart

until I saw my report card.

 

I thought I was real strong,

but in some places a lady just doesn’t belong.

 

I thought I had it goin’ on,

but I found out that I was all wrong.

 

I thought I dressed to impress,

but I looked just like the rest.

 

I thought my friends were real kool

until I saw them playin’ the roles

of fools.

 

Thinking is fine,

as long as you are

not led by the blind!

PROBLEM    SOLVER

 
FEBRUARY 2005

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God.

God solved Charlie (my son) and my problem.  He did it all by Himself and He didn’t need any help.

Proverbs 10:7    The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.

It was one Sunday night while we were testifying.   My daughter-in-law, Annie, gave her testimony.   I thought about my son, Charlie.   He was about 17 or 18 years old.   He wasn’t married at that time.   We were in the living room talking.   I was telling him to treat everybody right and the Lord would bless him.   I told him the Lord will be with him everyday of his life because sick day must come, too.  King David said “he never seen the righteous forsaken or his seed begging bread.”   My son said, “Momma everybody got to be sick, sometimes.”   I said don’t nobody wants to be sick, Tut.  We call him Tut.  That’s his nickname.   He said momma we just gotta be sick.   I said again “Boy, nobody just want to be sick!”  Then I said just live on.....you just live on. 

My son had a prom ring on his finger.   He has been wearing it a for long, long time.   That same night when everybody went to bed,  his finger with the ring on it had swollen.  It swelled so tight that it started hurting him.   He came in my room and said, “Momma, my finger hurt so bad and I can’t get the ring off.”  I said go back to your room!!  You said everybody got to be sick so go back to your room!

He went back crying.   About 5 to 10 minutes later, he came back to my room crying.  He said, momma look.   His whole hand was swollen.  The swelling had started up his arm.   Then, I felt so sorry for him.  He was just crying.

I got out of bed and tried to get the ring off with some soapy water.  I couldn’t move the ring.   His finger was so puffed up that the ring hand sunk down.  His whole hand was swollen.   I didn’t have enough money to send him to the doctor.   I felt so sorry.   I thought about my brother, Lester.  He had a restaurant downtown.   I gave my son 60 cents to catch the bus......30 cents to go and 30 cents to come back.  I told him to tell my brother, Lester, to give him $14.00 to go to the doctor.   The doctor was close to his restaurant.   I told him to tell Lester if it be anymore, I will pay all of it when I get my welfare check.   My check comes on the first of the month.  So, he did.

When he got to the doctor.  He couldn’t get the ring off.  So, he (the doctor) carried him to another doctor and he couldn’t get it off.   So, that doctor carried him to another doctor and that doctor got it off. His hand was kind of bruised because the doctor couldn’t get it off until he gave him a shot to deaden it.  So that doctor told my son to take the money to your doctor.  So, his own doctor didn’t charge because he didn’t get the ring off.   The second doctor didn't charge anything because he didn't get the ring off.

God worked the problem out for me and my son, Charlie.   He is still working it out even until this day.

I Peter 3:12-13    For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.   And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

So, Saints of God let us trust in the Lord and do good.

St. John 15:3 says we are clean through the Word of God.

It may be a mystery to some but it is Glory unto God!!!

Isaiah 42:8-9 I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.  Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

So, Saints of God there was no charge.  My son gave my brother his money back and came back home.   Everything was back in place.   My son found out that nobody just want to be sick and hurting.   But, God be the Glory! 

God Bless The United States of America.

DEPENDING ON THE LORD

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God. 

God brought this to my remembrance.  God showed me in a vision of me and Sis Germon.  Sis Germon is the Mother of the Church.  She and I were riding down the highway in a car.   There were three turn offs.   Everybody had to turn on one of the streets.  We turned off on the third street (The Father, Son and The Holy Ghost).  We  had what all God required of us to be saved. 

Sis Germon had got real sick and I stopped the car.  I got out and got Sis. Germon and was holding her in my arms.  I was hoping someone would come on our street so they could help me with her.  She was so sick.  I kept looking and hoping that somebody would turn on the third street.  The cars would turn on the first or second street.  I looked and looked.  Finally, I saw a man walking down the road coming towards us.   I got so glad.   He came straight to us and kneeled down beside Sis Germon and laid his hand on her upper stomach.  Sis. Germon got up and she was healed!

Then he said to me, “come.”  There was a body of water and a dead man was floating on the water.  He said unto me look.  He popped his finger and said, “Buddy!!”  The dead man got up, walking on the water to the banks to get out.  I looked at the man and wondered what kind of man was this? 

God was just teaching us a lesson that we can’t depend on nobody but Jesus for our help.  For all of our help comes from the Lord. 

Another time, in real life, Sis Germon couldn’t raise her arm.  She tried different things such as Ben-Gay and Icy Hot.  None of them did her any good.  It just helped a little, but she still couldn’t raise her arm.  So, I went to her house and prayed for her.  God blessed her to raise her arm some but not all the way up (about half way up).  When, I got home, I began to pray for her hoping that the hurting and stiffness will go away.   While, I was in the bathroom, I was just thinking about the Lord on how He is a healer.  And how He spoke to the wind and the water and there was a calm.  Really, I thought on a lot of scriptures.  While I was yet thinking , I saw “HE”.  I said Lord what do this means?   He showed me ”HEET”.  I called Sis Germon and told her.   She went to the Food World grocery store.  She went over to the prescription part of the store and bought the HEET Liquid Rub.  She put it on her joints.  She pulled off all her clothes and put on her house coat where she can let her arms be out (be free).    She rubbed it in real good and stayed up until it dried.  Then she would put some more on.  After that, she laid down and went to sleep.  When she woke up she was laying on her arm.  There wasn’t a pain and the stiffness was gone.  Sis Germon got healed with HEET.

 

She was so happy.  She called me and said, “Sis. Perdue, how are you feeling?  Just letting you know I feel good!!  I’m not hurting no where!”  Praise God!!!  We both were happy!! 

St. James 5:15-16       And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another that ye may be healed.  The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 

Luke 1:37      For with God nothing shall be impossible.

 Matthew 6:25   Therefore I say unto you, take no thought of your life...........

DECEMBER 2004

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God. 

I would like to share this testimony with you.   Pastor Earnestine Thomas is the pastor of Emanuel Temple Holiness Church.  The church was located in Hope Hull, Alabama at that time.  God sent me there to help her because she had no deacons.  Pastor Thomas said she was going to church to stay all night and pray. I wanted to be by myself.  That Sabbath about 12 or 1 o’clock that afternoon, God spoke to me and said, “Go down to Hope Hull and get there before 4 o'clock.” I started getting my things together.  I got my clothes for church services.  I put all the things I needed in a suitcase so I wouldn’t be in a rush.  About that time, I had a phone call, they  said Annie was real sick.  I said let me go by there and when I leave I can keep on to Hope Hull from her house.  Before, I got there, I heard a voice saying, “Can these bones live?”  Then I said you know Lord.  I thought about...

Ezekiel 37:3-4 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.  Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.

Anyway, When I got there she was in the bed sick.  I went in her room and began to pray.  She got right up and was healed.

I started on my way to Hope Hull because the Lord told me to get there before 4 o’clock that Sabbath Day evening.   When, I got there Pastor Thomas was sitting in the church by herself.  She was so glad to see me.  We prayed together and praised God.   The Spirit of God was all over the both of us.  We were so happy.  Around 11 o’clock or 12 a.m. that same night, we heard a knock at the door.  We looked at each other but we didn’t say a word.

Then God showed me an open eye vision.  I saw my daughter, Janell, white car running so fast.  Pastor Thomas and I still didn’t say a word.  By that time, my oldest daughter, Doris, cried out and said, “ Ma ma open the door!”  I went to the door because I knew her voice.  She said, “Ma ma, Janell is real sick and you got to come!”  But, I said, “God told me not to come back home.”  She said, “Ma ma, she is real sick.”  I said I am scared to go but let us have prayer.  Let me anoint your hands and you rub your hands all over Janell.   She said ok.  She started out.  When she got to the door she came back and laid $5.00 on the table and then left.

Now when the Lord showed me Janell car, it was not Janell car, but Janell was the one that was sick.

So, after service that Sunday afternoon, when I got home, Janell was healed.

Praise the Lord !!!

Acts 16:25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

Acts 16:30-31 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?  And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

This cry must be heard.

“Ma G.” Medicine 

 

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God.

Psalm 34:1-2     I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.  My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

Listen, I know that God wants to bless and heal somebody.  God brought this to my remembrance at 3 o’clock a.m. on 11/11/04.  My prayer partner, Glorease Perdue, is my daughter.  We have been praying now together for 12 years.  I had dreamed that she was sick at my house in my bed.  She was covered up with a white sheet over her.  The doctor was standing beside the bed.  I went into the kitchen.  There on the table was a 64 oz bottle of Welch’s grape juice, 1 liter Coca Cola and a bottle of Real Lemon Juice.  Real is the brand name of the lemon juice.  I got an empty bottle so I could mix ½ welch’s grape juice, ½ coca cola and ½ lemon juice in each container.  Then, I looked around and saw a jar of instant coffee.  The Lord said put one teaspoon in each but do not pile up the spoon.  So, I mixed all that together and I shook it real good.  I put some in a cup and carried it into the room.  I gave Glorease some.  The doctor was just looking.  Glorease jumped up and threw the sheet back and got up.  The doctor said What! What! What’s That?!  Than he got the cup out of my hand.  He put a needle in his arm and attached a foam cup to the needle ( just like an IV). Then he poured the rest in the foam cup going into his arm.  About that time, I said Doctor! Doctor!............then I said you need a healing, too.  Then, I woke up out of my dream.

Yes, the Lord showed me how to make this medicine.  We call it the “Ma G.” medicine.  God said, “ it must be made at night to bring light to the day.”  This medicine must be made at night.  You must take a little at a time.  You make it to the size of your family or just for yourself.  The next day, I went to the store.  I bought the Welch’s Grape Juice, Real lemon juice and the Coca cola.  I already had the instant coffee.  I mixed it just like I saw it in my dream.  Later on, the Lord told me to add peppermint candy to it.

The next morning Glorease and I prayed as usual.  She didn’t tell me she had to go to the doctor.  When she got back she was so sick.  She had two teeth pulled and her face had swollen. Her face was swollen so big she couldn’t hold up her head.  She called for me and I went over there.   I carried my medicine with me.  She couldn’t eat nothing because her face was hurting.  I gave her a little to see if she could sip it and so she did.  I carried some egg noodles and bell peppers with me.  This is what God gave me a long time ago.  It is used for joints and stiffness.  You make it with a lot of bell peppers and just egg noodles.  A little salt for seasoning and cook it all  together.   I dipped a little broth off  of it and gave it to her and she got healed.  After then, she got up and got some oyster crackers and open a can of soup. She ate one bowl and then she got another bowl full.

Now , let me tell you where I got the name “Ma G.”  Glorease told me about one of her co-workers.  One of her co-workers couldn’t pronounce her name so well.  She asked her was it alright to call her “Ma G.”  She told her that it was alright.  I named the medicine “Ma G.”

This medicine has healed a lot of peoples.  It has healed them from coughing, cold, upset   stomach and  from feeling bad.  But  remember, you just take a little at a time.  The Mother of the Church said she takes a swallow every morning.

My grand daughter, we call her Tweety.  Her real name is Alisha.  She had a bad cough.  She took some and it stopped it almost instantly.  She was healed.  One of my church member’s stepfather had been sick for 2 weeks.  She gave him some “Ma G.” medicine.  God blessed him and healed him.   He got out of bed and cooked two chickens.  Even on my job, Mr. Weston had a bad cough.  I gave him some and he didn’t cough no more.  A teacher said to me to bring her some.  I told her wait and let me give you the recipe and I did.

It has also healed me.  I was cooking one afternoon about 2:00 o’clock and had a cough.  I took some and it healed me.  Another time in the middle of the night, I had a dry cough.  I took some more “Ma G.” medicine and it healed me.

Let me tell you another testimony.  A young, eleven year old boy had cancer in his head. He got so he could not move.  He had something like cold rattling in his throat.  He could not eat. My oldest daughter carried me over to the house to pray for him.  I carried my “Ma G.” medicine.  I prayed for him first. Then, I explained the “Ma G.” medicine to his  mother and told her how it helped so many peoples. She placed some in a syringe.  She placed it to the back of his throat so he could swallow some.  He raised his hand and moved his feet.  His mother was so happy because he haven’t done that before.  God sent me back two other times.  I noticed he kept looking out the window like he’s looking for someone. Each time I would pray for him and tell him I’m coming back.  He would wave his hand side to side each time.  God healed his rattling in his throat and healed him to move.  But, I didn’t know he was waving me farewell.  One Friday, when I got off my job God told me to go over his house.  I am so glad I did.  That Sunday night he left me.

Obey God rather than man.

I have love for peoples.  I have concern for all peoples to be blessed .  God made me this way.

St. John 3:16   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.

 

May God continue to get the Glory,

OCTOBER 2004

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and I will bless the Lord at all times.  His praises shall continually be in my mouth.

Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

God got me off my job. I worked for the Community Action Head Start Program. He kept saying to me, “Clergy of the Gospel, Clergy of the Gospel.”  I told the leading teacher what the Lord had told me.  She didn’t say a word.  She just looked at me.  She knew I would tell her things before it happened.  I would also tell her about some of her family members.  I also told her I saw in a vision that somebody in her family died with their shoes on.

The next morning when she got to work, she told me her first cousin got killed and died with his shoes on his feet.  I also told her that her grand baby got real sick.  That morning about 9:30 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. her daughter called and said they had to rush the baby to the hospital.  So, she had to leave her job.

I had prayed for a lot of people.  I had prayed for teachers, children and some of the head staff at Community Action.  Even though, I had done all of that I had to leave.  The Lord kept on reminding me saying, “Clergy of the Gospel.”  One day I was walking down the hall at Gibbs Village Community Center, I heard a voice saying, “Preach the Gospel, Preach the Gospel.”  So, I just smiled and said to myself, I am already preaching The Gospel.  So, I did leave.  God wanted me to help more peoples.

God told me to get on the radio.  I said radio.  I was thinking about the money part.  The Lord said tell the people about the Sabbath Day and to keep it Holy.  One Sunday, the Lord led me to go to another church.  When I looked around, I saw a man looking and smiling at me.  He kept on looking and smiling at me.  Then he said, “Lady, I saw you in a dream last night.”  You had on a long white dress.  I told my wife and you can ask her.  The Lord told me to give you 15 minutes on the radio.  My wife knows it.  His wife said yes, he told me the same thing.  Then he said you can start on the Sabbath because God showed you to me in a long white dress.  I told my wife, if I saw her, I will know her.

I felt better but I didn’t go the following Sabbath.  After that, I got my own radio broadcast for 30 minutes.  Then a lady came to our church and told me God sent her.  She said God told her to pay for 30 minutes of the broadcast.  Now, I am on the radio for one hour every Sabbath Day.  But, God be the Glory.  In God we Trust.  God will provide. 

God said that I was going to have some static about the Sabbath Day but still tell the people what’s right.  The Sabbath is the right Day.

Exodus 20:8-10 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.  Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt nor do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

Luke 13:14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the Sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day. 

Matthew 12:8 For The Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day.

Luke 12:23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

Psalm 96:8 “Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name:...”

Dear Friends,

I would like to share my testimony with you.  One morning about 8:00 a.m. or 8:30 a.m. when my children were very young.  I started crying and crying but I didn’t know what I was crying about.  So, I ask the Lord what was wrong with me.  I was not sick or anything.   In other words I was happy but I didn’t know what I was crying about.  The Lord spoke to me and said, “say the Lord’s  Prayer backwards.”

This is The Lord’s Prayer backward: (Matthew 6:9-13)

Amen, ever for, glory the and, power the and, kingdom the is thine for: evil from us deliver but, temptation, into not us lead And

SEPTEMBER

2004

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God.  Glory be to God!

I was thinking how my prayer partners and I would pray every morning around 5:00 a.m. on the telephone.  We would connect with each other on the three way line. It was five of us.  Pastor Leola Pickney was my first prayer partner.  We have prayed every hour during the day some days while I was on my summer break off my job.  One morning as I kneeled  down  to my prayer chair to pray, God gave me an open eye vision.  I heard a noise.  I looked up and there was a horse standing.  I looked right up in the horse’s nose.  His nose was opening and closing as he had been running.  I didn’t know the Scripture at that time in Job 39:21.  It reads..He (which represents a horse) paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men. 

Psalm 14:2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

 On September 1, 2004 at 11:30 am, I was sitting at the church thinking how it is a mystery to men and Glory to God.  This young lady came to our church during Hour of Prayer.  Hour of Prayer takes place every Friday Night beginning at 7:00 pm.  She told me how she visited our Website and ran copies of the pages.  She reads them everyday and some at night.  She said it has been a blessing to her.  Another lady told me she ran copies from May to July.  She got up early that morning and sat on the porch and read all of them.

I esteem everyone that readeth these words to become one of my partners in Christ Jesus.

Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth.. the law happy is he.

Habakkuk 2:2-3 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.  For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Revelation 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

God gave me this scripture...Matthew7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these things of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.

That Rock is Jesus!

Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church: and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

 

Matthew 16:20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

II Samuel 22:2 And he said, The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;

God gave  this to me while I was yet writing...I Corinthians 2:9 But it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.

I Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

I Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the thing that are freely given to us of God.

Hosea 4:6 “ My people are destroyed by the lack of knowledge: ...”

AUGUST 2004

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God.

 

I Corinthians 9:10 “...this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope: and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.”

 

God explains it in II Timothy 2:6 The husbandman (farmer) that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruit.

 

I Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?

 

Listen, all that I do for the Gospel’s sake is in order to share His blessing.

 

I Corinthians 9:12-14 If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather?  Nevertheless we have not rather used this power: but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.

Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple?  And they which  wait at the alter are partakers with the alter?

Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.

 

I have so much to offer you that I don’t know where to start.  Here are some of my favorite numbers.  My favorite bible numbers are three, seven and twelve.  Below are the biblical references and my personal testimonies for the number three.

Three - is the number of Trinity.  There are three person in the Godhead.  They are the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. ( I John 5:7)

There are 3 person in the trinity of evil.  It is the devil, anti-christ and the false prophet. (Revelation 20:10)


 

Let me share my personal testimony.  One day I was in the field.  I saw in the clouds a big hand up to it’s elbow. It made a long line in the cloud with it’s finger.  Then it drew on the line seven symbols  liking unto an upside down “U”. The finger touched each upside down “U” and they became a live dove.  They ruffled their little wings and flew off one by one.  Then I heard a voice said unto me, “What do you want me to do for you?”  I said if you can do that, you know more for me than I know for my own self.  He gave me three shots in the back of my head and told me to go yonder and when you come back He will give me a job.  The Lord began to send me to different churches.  I went to varies churches in Montgomery. Churches in different parts of California such as Hawthorne, Belmont and Pasadena. I have been to a  church in New York and Detroit.  There were so many different races of people.

 

Then He said H.O.H ...H.O.H... on and on.  Eight months later He said I’m going to give you a baby.  I said, “a baby.” He said, “Yes, but I’m going to be with you.”  A few months later He gave me a church.  The church is my baby. The H.O.H Holiness Church (Holy of Holiness).

After He gave us the church, He told us to dedicate it back to Him.  He told us to come back at 3:00 o’clock  p.m.  I was the blue printer for the church.  He told me how to design the church inside and out.

JULY 2004

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God. On Monday morning, June 8, 2004, God said to me, " time bring about a change."  I was reminded of the lady that have been following the Pharisees but thought she was following Jesus.

 

One Christmas morning after we had services, we went out missioning.  I told the Lord that I want to be a Christmas tree and light bulb for somebody today.  I said I will eat when I come back.  We went to a lady house called Big Mama that stayed in New Town off of Ripley Street.  A young lady came in and we started singing and praying.  The young lady said I've been looking for my  kind of people for a long time.  I prayed for her and she fell out in the Spirit.  She rose shouting and testifying of how she was raised up in a Holiness  Church.  She went to live with her aunt and she wasn't saved and she talked against the Holiness Churches.  As we continued at the house,  God blessed her and Big Mama.

 

Big Mama was in the bed sick.  She said come back because the Pharisees are waiting for me to die.  She said look at them on the wall and in the corner.  Run them out!  We opened the door and prayed.  She said they are gone now but y'all come back next week.

 

That Christmas night after I returned home,  I was still Holy and full of God's Spirit.  I looked at all the food that had been cooked such as the big turkey, dressing, cakes and pies.  I could not eat. I said I will eat in the morning. The next morning early about 7 o'clock,  God showed me a big bible opened.  It had a big  DAN.  I read Daniel 1:4 where Daniel and them were well favored and skillful in all wisdon, cunning in knowledge and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king's palace.  Daniel 1:12-13....just give us pulse to eat and water to drink for ten (10) days then let our countenance be looked upon.  Daniel 1:17...God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.  So,  after that, I ate only green beans and plain meal cornbread made with buttermilk.  God told me to eat only this.  I ate it about 8 months.  I ate only green beans and cornbread every meal.  Whether it was once, twice or three times a day.  So many people ask me, "What's wrong Sis. Perdue?"  I said, "nothing".  I got so little they thought I was sick someway and fell off.  There were two other saints that ate with me for a while, they were Sis. Nancy Germon and Sis. Ann Smith.

 

After we returned to Big Mama's house the next week, she said, "look at them they came back waiting for me to die." She said all these many years I thought I was following Jesus but was following the Pharisees.

 

The next week we came back.  She said, "the Angel visited me."  I've got the Holy Ghost.  They put a Holy Ghost tag on my dresser knob.  Approximately one or two weeks later, she died.  She died with The Holy Ghost.  Praise the Lord!

Listen, nobody can change God's plans.  Nobody can change God program and there is nothing too hard for God to do.

 

Proverbs 30:11-12 There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother.  There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.

 

Proverbs 16:7 When a man's ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

 

Proverbs 30:13-14 There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up.  There is a generation whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.

 

But God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (St. John 3:16)

JUNE 2004 I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praises unto God.  One Sunday
at The All Nation Holiness Church, Bishop Tummerlin ask me to bring the message. 
The title of my first message at All Nation Holiness Church was the "Day of
Pentecost" - when all  God children get together, what a time we will all have." 
As I took the stand before the congregation, I began to preach.  I said " I am
aiming for the sun, but if I happen to miss the sun, I am aiming for the moon
and if I happen to miss the moon and fall amongst the stars, I'll still be on
high ground."  The Lord really blessed.

 

There are 3 Keys to winning

(1) Be prepared for the Kingdom of God
(2) Do your best. "Do unto others as you would have them to do unto you."
(3) Don't give up.  A quitter is never a winner and a winner is never a quitter.

As I was going to the radio station one day, God told me life is more than meat
and bread.  What about in Noah's time?  Matthew 24:38-39 "For as in the days
that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in
marriage, until the day Noah entered in the ark, And knew not until the flood
came and took them all away...."    What about in Moses time after the children
of Israel crossed the Red Sea?  Exodus 32:6-8 ".....and the people sat down to
eat and to drink, and rose up to play.  And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get
thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have
corrupted themselves:  They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I
have commanded them:....."   God spoke to me at Church and said "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God."

There are 5 things we need to live a Holy life -

(1)  We need our loins girt about with Truth... The truth will make us free.
(2) Having our breastplate of righteousness....Because right will follow you
all the days of your life.
(3) We need of feet shod with the gospel of Peace.  St. John 14:27 Peace I
leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I
unto you.  Jesus is the only one that gives us peace.  Peace of mind above man understanding.  Let not your heart be trouble.
(4) We need to take the Shield of Faith...By your faith be it unto you. It just take a little.
(5) Also, The helmet of Salvation and the Sword.  The Sword is the Word of
God.

Five is the number of God's Grace to help man weaknesses.

Listen, your own pleasures causes a snare.  Sin does not make you happy.
I Corinthians 13:6  Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
Psalm 96:8  Give unto the Lord the Glory due unto his name: bring an offering,
and come into his courts (Church).
Genesis 12:3  And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth
thee: and thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

This cry must be heard!!!!!!

MAY 2004  

I come before your presence with thanksgiving and praise unto God, saying:
If I can do some good today
If I can serve along my way
If I can something help or say
Lord show me how

If I can right a human wrong
If I can make somebody strong
If I can cheer with a smile or a song
Lord show me how

If I can help someone in their distress
If I can make their burdens a little bit less
If I can spread more of your happiness
Lord show me how

Because Nobody but Nobody can live in this world alone.

Galatians 1:15 & 16  But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's
womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach
among the heathen, immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood. (Meaning not with people but the Spirit of God)
