The Word was with God

Psalm 141:1-3

LORD I cry out to You; make haste to me! Give ear to my voice when I cry out to You. Let my prayers be set before You as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. Set a guard, O LORD over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips.

 

Before I say anything else I would like to say something about last week’s email. If you still have it and you read it again you will notice I said “and the other IS LIKE two brothers who…” We do not have two brothers fighting in our church. I was using an illustration. The illustration is that like two brothers sometimes get into fights because they are brothers they get up and go about loving each other as brothers because they are part of the same family. Church members can be like that, they can at times not get along but then because they are family they get past their difference and continue being family and loving one another.

If you were or are still trying to figure out “who the brothers are the preacher is talking about” you can stop because that is not what was said. If you have been having conversations with others about “Who the fighting brothers could be” please speak to them again and share the truth that that was JUST AN ILLUSTRATION. Please let everyone know we do not have brothers fighting at PBC!

We have not done one of these in awhile but our deacons would like to bring back the tradition of serving our Senior adults! If you are a senior, please mark your calendar and plan on joining us for this special meal and fellowship.

We will have the ordination council meeting at 2:30, the Ordination service at 3:30 and a fellowship to follow with refreshments (not a meal).

We will not have an evening service on Sunday, September 18th.

 

Don’t forget: Operation Christmas Child (fill a shoe box or two or three), Mary Hill Davis State Missions offering (our offering to support mission work in our state) our goal is $1,000, this week (Sunday evening) is our monthly business meeting and fellowship meal.

 

Prayer needs: Jack Tucker (Hendrick hospital), Jeannie Fridrick (Shoulder surgery), Mark Childers is taking his dad today to meet with the doctors to discuss what action they will take (pray for the trip and the meeting to make the right choice), Prayer of praise for the donor for Shea and a new kidney (pray for the team of doctors as they meet to schedule the process), Brian Clifton and family (this is the weekend our son and his family are officially going in view of a call to be the Worship Minister at a church in California)

 

Pray for this week’s worship and message! Yes, we will continue our series on the book of Revelation. We are in chapter 10. As I have been preparing these messages one of the new things that seems to be appearing to me is the amount of focus that John is being given of God, Christ and heaven. The book of Revelation is about the end and the time of tribulation and all the bad stuff that is going to happen but the truth is that the Book of Revelation when you study it and think about it is about God and His glory and greatness and not “just tribulation”. To those who do not read it or want to study it because of the tribulation information, “you are missing out on great stuff about God”.

I don’t know if you have picked up on the pattern but during the first seven seals the first four are bad but the last three are even worse. There was a break after seal number six and before seal number seven was opened and the same pattern follows for the trumpets. Revelation chapters 10-11 are the break between trumpet numbers 6 and 7. Chapter 11 is the half way point to the book of Revelation and in the first 11 chapters we have read more about the Glory of God than the tribulation of earth.

I am not real certain if at this point Chapters 10 and 11 will be one message or two. I am still praying and working on that. To be honest one of my desires in sharing this sermon series has been to keep it fresh and new and not let it get overwhelming and too long.

Please be in prayer for this week’s message as it is still in preparation. A couple of questions for you to think about as we think ahead to Sunday and worship are: "Is this an Angel being described?" and "What is the purpose in eating a book?"

See you Sunday!

Your pastor and friend

Bro. Keith
