Need to deal with life’s unpleasant times? 2 Timothy 2:23-25

“Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord’s servants must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting His opponents with gentleness, in hope that God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth.”

As hard as it is some days, we’d be wise to remember these words from Romans 13:1 “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” If we find this hard to digest, try these words Jesus spoke in Luke 6:27-28 “But I tell you who hear: love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who mistreat you.”

Remember, too, that God does have a plan – a plan beyond our understanding and in His time, not ours. Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.”

Being God’s children is a tough job sometimes. We often say, “I’m only human” to excuse our words or actions. So, when we are at our emotional weakest and worn out by daily events – turn to God. His love never fails.

Psalm 136:23-24 “God saw the trouble we were in. God’s love never fails. He rescued us from our enemies. God’s love never fails”. Romans 12:9-10 “Love must be free of hypocrisy. Detest what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love…”

1 John 3:18 “My little children, let’s not love in word only, or with the tongue only, but in deed and truth.”

First Baptist Farmerville

We welcome you! First Baptist Church, 400 North Main, offers two worship services every

Sunday morning. The 9 AM service is suitable for senior adults and higher-risk attendees, and masks are required throughout this service. At the 11 AM service, a mask is required when entering and exiting the building and while moving around the sanctuary.

Most of us believe and trust the Word of God. Most of us believe that the Lord will return one day. Based on what’s happening in the world, it may be soon. Shouldn’t we be prepared?

Luke 19:11-27 is a parable that Jesus told just before His crucifixion. It was intended for His disciples to understand what was to come and what He expects from us until His return.

Church, we are living in the days leading up to the return of our King. We have been given various responsibilities, and we are expected to fulfill those responsibilities. When the King comes, He will come with great expectations of our lives, and there are great consequences to what He finds.

Although our King is a King of Grace, He is a righteous, judging King as well. Upon His return, judgement comes. There is a time of reckoning, and according to this story, it will be great for some, but destructive for others. We will be accountable for our actions, for by our actions, our hearts are revealed.

There is a tendency to trust someone’s words, but our King looks at the heart. Our actions, our handling of His instructions, are evidence of our faithfulness to God. What are we responsible for?

1) Ourselves, our relationship with the Lord, our knowledge of Him, and our service to Him.

2) Our family, which is a gift of God to each of us. Husbands, love your wives as Jesus loves the church. Wives, support and follow the example of your husband in the Lord.

Parents, raise up your children in the admonition of the Lord.

3) Love your neighbor as yourself. Make a difference in a positive way.

Let’s take what God has given us, whatever it may be, and do our best to see it grow in 2021.

Come worship, love, serve, and learn with us! Kurt Auger, Pastor; Frank Nihart, Music Pastor.

First Baptist Church — Marion

In the 60’s a magazine cover said “God Is Dead.” As the world spins in chaos some may wonder if that is true. At FBC Marion there is manifold evidence that God is alive,

Jesus lives and the Holy Spirit continues to work. Ask Michael Thomas, Dustin Andrews, Shep Towns or Sawyer Towns if Jesus still saves. Three great weeks of baptizing and watching God work in the midst of all Satan is trying to do shouts “God Is Not Dead.” Bro. Bubba preached today from II Samuel 10. David and his people were vastly outnumbered for battle. Surely they must have felt as Christians today do looking at what seemed to be a hopeless situation. They didn’t know whether they would be temporarily defeated or whether God would amazingly deliver them. Listen to what they said in II Samuel 10:12, “Be of good courage, and let us play the men for our people, and for the cities of our God; and the Lord do that which seemeth Him good.” Our purpose as Christians is to be courageous and live like warriors in the Army of God and leave the results to Him. Take heart fellow Christians, “He’s got the whole world in His hands.”

PRAY FOR EACH OTHER, OUR CHURCH, OUR NATION, AND OUR LEADERS.

Haile Church of Christ

Sermons, religious broadcasts, commentaries and authors boldly claim insight into Bible prophecy as it relates to current or future world events. “Prophecy is unfolding before our very eyes” is a commonly heard comment. Practically every major world leader or event finds a place in prophecy especially when national Israel is involved and, periodically, a world leader is labeled as possibly the coming “anti-Christ.” Ironically, the Scriptures teach that “anti-Christ” is not a person but any doctrine denying Christ’s deity and that many anti-Christs were present in the first-century (1 John 2:18; 2:22; 4:3). Old Testament prophecies weren’t given to satisfy man’s curiosity by predicting the end times! The mystery of the prophets was the grace that was to come (1 Peter 1:10) or the suffering and glorification of Jesus (Luke 24:25-26). The mystery didn’t look beyond the first century. It was that through the gospel all nations would be reconciled in the one body (Ephesians 3:3-6). In his second sermon Peter taught that Samuel and his successors prophesied “these days” or the preaching of the gospel and establishment of Christ’s church (Acts 3:24). As he stood before King Agrippa Paul asked, “King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets? I know that you do” (Acts 26:28). Paul understood that the prophet’s message predicted the gospel. In giving His account of the preceding signs and the ultimate destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, Jesus taught that this event would fulfill all things which are written (Luke 21:22). It is important to note that the symbolic Revelation letter begins and ends by stressing that the prophecy would be fulfilled shortly or soon after it was revealed, not in the distant future (Revelation 1:1; 1:3; 22:6; 22:10). Attempts to mold Bible prophecy into current or future world events are futile and deceptive.

Schedule of Services

Sunday School - 10am

Worship Service - 1am

Sunday Evening - 6pm

Wed. Bible Study - 6pm

Wed. Bible Study, Feb. 10th, Bro. Dan’s message was from 1 Peter Chapter 4. (17) For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? (19) Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

Sunday School, Feb. 14th, Bro. Paul taught us from John Chapter 19:12-42 and 20:1-8.

(19:30) When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

His job was finished. (20:7) And the napkin, that was about his head , not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.

An unfolded napkin meant the master was finished; the folded napkin meant the Master would return.

Worship Service, Feb. 14th, Bro. Dan’s message was from 1 Corinthians Chapter 13 and Jeremiah Chapter 29:11. (1 Corinthians 13:13) And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Charity (love) is unselfish. “Close” is not what we are seeking; being “saved “ is.

(Jeremiah 29:11) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Strive to care for one another.

Sunday Evening services were canceled due to the bad weather. It is unsure about Wed. Bible Study, but likes very unlikely at this time.

LMBC still has cookbooks available. The cost is $10 with 300 recipes. To order one please call Donna at (318) 548-2699 and I will get it to you.

Bro. Mark and Sis. Sandy brought a big pot of Taco soup on Wednesday night. I understand that it was very good. So very good of them to do that!

During these very difficult times, it’s even more important to have a wonderful church family. That’s what we have at LMBC and invite everyone who is in need of a church home and a wonderful church family to come join us in worship and fellowship!

Liberty Baptist Church - Linville

National Day Of Prayer and Repentance

The Return, September 26th, 2020.

A National Day of Prayer for America, an organized effort to turn our hearts and lives back to God. On this date, many will meet in our nation’s capital to pray. For those who cannot attend, we are asking you to gather with your family, friends or individually and pray seeking God’s forgiveness, direction and guidance. We will be meeting in the parking lot of Liberty Baptist Church in Linville at 8 a.m. on September 26th to repent and pray for our communities and our nation. Everyone is invited to join us that morning as we lift up prayers for America. This event is 40 days prior to our national elections. Continue to pray daily for God’s mercy and grace.

Liberty Missionary Baptist Church – Spearsville

Liberty Church Road, Spearsville

Bro. Bill Styron, Pastor

We had several special songs: Bros. Brandon, Jessie, Larry, Ricky sang “What a Day”, Bro. Gus sang “He’s in the Midst”; Bro. Bill sang “I’ll Stand for Jesus”.

Bro. Bill brought the message from 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” What can I do to change the spirit, moral, climate of this world? We have all gotten away from God. We are facing an overwhelming challenge and we need to get hold of it in God’s way by going to God. There is a condition to be met before we receive the reward. We are not going to get the reward until we meet the condition. As a country we have not meet the condition. We must get in agreement with God. He loved us so much that He gave His only son to shed his blood. We need to take personal responsibility for our sins and quit blaming others. We must understand we are going to have to humble ourselves and do what God said. We need to submit to God’s will. We like to talk to God and for God to listen, but we don’t want to listen when God tells us what to do. We need to be interceding for others. Pray for others to be saved. We don’t want to go through trials. We should love unconditionally because Jesus died for them too. We need to turn from our wicked ways. We say we are Christians. We may be believers, but if we don’t do as Christ, we can’t be Christians. Where do we fit in to God’s plan? There is no ministry of the pew. We enter the church building to worship, but we should be leaving to serve. We get our power down on our knees, humbled before God. There is no power in Christians today because we don’t spend quality time in prayer humbling ourselves asking for direction. If we want this land healed, it is time for a change.

We invite you to come grow in God’s Word and fellowship with us.

My Father’s House

My Father’s House Teach one to be one. Jesus was with the disciples for three years. He was with them 40 days before going to heaven. If you have read Acts 1 and 2 you would know this. The promise of God was given to Jesus and the promise was fulfilled. The Holy Spirit came upon the disciples and the preaching began. Jesus had made it clear that there would be false teachers. Jesus said also, the way is narrow that leads to life and few find it. T12B1 will make disciples of Jesus, disciples of Jesus get to know God. In Matthew 5 Jesus opened his mouth telling them about the kingdom of heaven. The faithful disciples will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. In Matthew 6, Jesus gave instructions on how to get something from God our father. The disciples learned from the teacher for God to forgive, one must forgive according to Jesus. Jesus taught the disciples about the eye. He told them about log and specks. He mentioned hypocrites. In verses 6 and 7 Jesus explains the law and the prophets. Jesus told them about trees and how to recognize them. Have you read his words beware of false prophets, they will come to you in sheep clothing. Don’t forget this. Join Joseph at My Father’s House at 4774 Highway 151 Downsville, La 71234. For more information call or text 318-620-9293.

Galatians 5:22 – But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith . . . Patience – that may be a problem in this day and time. How to know if we are patient: How do we deal with interruptions, when things throw us off schedule? How do we deal with irrational behavior in others? What about inconveniences that crop up or when things happen of which we have no control? We may need to cultivate patience, a characteristic of the fruit of the Spirit.

What patience is not: It is not the ability to put up with tedious tasks or irrational people. It is not even the ability to suffer for Christ. (I will do it because God wants me to do so.) Patience is necessary for maturing – knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. James 1:3-4. Patience is necessary to get us through trials of life, making us victorious. It is necessary in dealing with ourselves and our family and others, James 1:7 – For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. When things are tough, we love through it. We are to show love, grace, and mercy to all.

All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I’ll cling. In His blessed presence live, ever His praises sing. Love so mighty and so true, merits my soul’s best songs, Faithful, loving service too, to Him belongs. Love lifted me! Love lifted me! When nothing else could help, Love lifted me!
