Who Will Be Able to Stand?

THANKS FOR SUPPORTING OUR SUPER SUMMER SERVICES! You all did well when we hosted and last Sunday evening when we went to Elmdale Baptist we had a very good number of our members there (actually I think we had the most). But that is not the point; the point is you guys are being a part of our joint services and fellowship and it is all going well. Thank you again for your participation!

Remember this week we will go to FBC, Eula at 6:00 pm for our next super summer service.

 

For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?

Revelation 6:17

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our LORD. Romans 6:23

We believe as Christians that God is who is being talked about in the phrase “His Wrath” and it is God who will someday judge man’s sin.

We also as Christians believe that our sin has been paid for in full by the blood of Jesus our Savior on the cross of Calvary!

Sadly, those who do not believe and trust in Jesus as their Savior “will not stand” because they will be judged and found guilty of their own sin.

This week we will continue our series of messages from the book of Revelation and this week we will look at chapter 6:1-17 and this week’s message will be titled “Who will be able to Stand?”

I don’t recommend waiting until after the rapture of the church to get your soul and heart right with God, but I do believe there will be one more opportunity during tribulation for people to get saved. In 6:9-10 there are “martyrs” who appear in heaven. The first question is when did these people arrive? Did they arrive during the tribulation or before the tribulation?

I don’t think there is enough proof either way to say, but it is possible they could have been saved during the tribulation, then killed for Jesus sake as Christians. One of my thoughts, and we will discuss it more Sunday, is that salvation though possible during tribulation will be much, much harder to achieve.

Chapter 6 begins the opening of the “Seals”. All the “Seals” are about the death and destruction that is going to be brought on by the tribulation.

I pray that you will join me this weekend as we worship and continue our series of messages in Revelation.

 

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD…. our shoe boxes are ready for pick up! If you would like to donate to filling or shipping the boxes that would be great. It cost $7.50 to mail each box and for around $20 you can fill a box.

It is time for our committees to begin preparation for next year. If you are teaching, please be praying about whether or not God wants you to continue so that when you are asked soon by the committee you will have an answer. If you are not teaching but would like to, please let me or someone on the Nominating committee know.

If you are on one of our ministry teams, please be thinking about a budget request to turn in to our finance committee.

 

COMING IN SEPTEMBER …SENIOR ADULT REVIVAL!!! It will begin on Sunday evening September 25th at FBC, Clyde and there will be morning services Monday -Wednesday with a meal to follow each day. We will host Wednesday’s service.

We are also working on having our Deacon Ordination Service in September so be watching for more details to come about that.

I will let you know more details as they are worked out, but we are also working on having Dr. Freed again come and speak. He is the Christian Jew who spoke last year and did a question and answer time. This time his daughter who plays the harp is coming as well to bless us with some

music. We will work this around all of our other Sept activities or even into early October.

Prayer needs: Joe Polk (heart), Paula Davis, Thanks for rain and need for more, The beginning of a new school year, Praise for God’s blessings

 

Thanks for all your prayers, encouragement and support! See you this weekend in Worship and Bible Study.

Your pastor and friend

Bro. Keith
