The King is Coming

THANK YOU, LORD, FOR “SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS!”

I will make them and the places all around My hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing. Ezekiel 34:26

 

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

We have 185 boxes filled and ready to turn in! Our goal was 200 and we may not have reached 200 but 185 is a lot of boxes! That means that 185 children around the world will get to receive a gift box filled with blessing for Christmas and the message of God’s love. Thank you again for filling so many boxes and being a part of this ministry!

Last Sunday we talked about Revelation 17-18 and the false religion of the tribulation. I had just preached about false religion and the next day I saw a family member put something on FB that got me stirred up again about false religion.

A family member (ex-wife of a cousin) posted this saying on FB recently:

What is the difference between?

I like you and I love you

Beautifully answered by Buddha: When you like a flower, you pluck it but when you love a flower, you water it daily. One who understands this understands life.

Since I had been preaching about “false religion” the Buddhism comment sent me into the preacher mode and I couldn’t help but reply: Buddhism is a false religion and anyone who understands that should be looking to God’s word for the truth about love and not the world.

That statement though does make the point that I have been trying to make and that is that false religion though wrong will sound close to the truth and sound convincing if you are not spiritually mature to recognize the difference.

Signs to help you recognize “false religion” and or cults (a) they oppose critical thinking, they don’t want you doing any thinking on your own, (b) they teach a doctrine that is outside of Biblical doctrine, (c) they isolate a person from family or relationships that may have influence other than their own, (d) they have a non-appropriate loyalty to leadership, (e) they cross the Biblical boundaries of relationship

There are “false religions” all around us. Christians should be cautious and should be teaching their children and guiding their children in Biblical truth so that they can recognize “false religion” as well.

One of these days Jesus is coming again! When the rapture occurs, we will not be here to worry about the “false church” (Christians that is). Revelation tells us several times that “Babylon is fallen” and in 18:21-24 it describes Babylon being thrown into the sea with a big millstone so that there is no way she will survive or come back. That is good news that the tribulation will end, it will be only a seven-year period and the end of tribulation is going to be with the coming of Jesus to punish and end the devil the false Christ and false church once and for all.

I invite you to join me as we continue this series this week with our message from Revelation 19 titled “The King is Coming”!

 

Prayer needs: Frank Healer (heart Cath this coming Tuesday), the family of Donny Harbers (for our new members Bro. Donny was a pastor here several years ago), pray for Wylie Baptist church as they grieve the death of their pastor (Bro. Donny) and begin the steps of seeking their next pastor, Jeannie Fridrich (Abilene Regional), Patsy Thompson had test last week but found no other heart blockage that could be causing her weak heart so they are going to address the weakness of her heart with medication changes

 

O.K. it has finally come to an end, the race for president that is. I don’t know what the future holds for our economy or foreign issues and I don’t know what will be changed if anything about the health insurance problems but I say very loudly THANK YOU FOR SAYING YES TO LIFE and electing a president that believes killing babies is wrong!

This is November which is our month of “Thanksgiving”. As Christians, we should be thankful all the time and we have blessings upon blessings to be thankful for! Just a thought and or challenge: Don’t just keep your thankful thoughts to yourself, tell God, your family and friends why you are thankful while you can do it!

Let me start: I AM THANKFUL FOR YOU AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE THE LORD TOGETHER WITH YOU AS THE PASTOR OF POTOSI BAPTIST CHURCH!

 

See you Sunday in worship!

Your pastor and friend

Bro. Keith
