Humor - couldn’t we use a good laugh or 2 just now? Here’s a good one from a hiker friend: (picture a large Blue crawfish)… “This is a blue crawfish. I saw him on the Appalachian Trail. He seemed lost for a moment, then he threw up his pinchers and charged towards me. True Story. This was not the only crawfish we saw out here on the Trail. I told this one that his aggression was useless - that I had eaten his family and his ancestors. It didn’t faze him. He still came at me like a drunk redneck trying to stand his ground. I set him free. He lives to fight another day!”

Proverbs 17:22 “A joyful heart is good medicine…” We know that it’s difficult amid today’s medical and political messes to find any humor. “But the Lord laughs at the wicked, for He sees that His day is coming.” Psalm 37:13

Seek Jesus during these times. Remember that He will see us through any circumstance. Our reward for faithfulness is a life-ever-after.

Laughter is good; but God knows that humor may bring only temporary relief from a worried, hurtful or sad situation. Turn to Him. Luke 6:21 “Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.” “He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with rejoicing.” Job 8:21

First Baptist Farmerville

Come join us! FBC offers two worship services every Sunday morning at 400 North Main, Farmerville. The 9 AM service is suitable for senior adults and higher-risk attendees, and masks are required throughout the service. At the 11 AM service, a mask is required only upon entering and exiting the building and while moving around the sanctuary. Social distancing seating between family units is encouraged.

Bro. Kurt’s sermon, “Understanding the Enemy,” continues exploring the question, “how much influence does technology have over your life?” Technology can be used for good. We’re able to broadcast our service using it. We stay connected to one another and share information quickly and easily.

But with the good comes the bad. Social media has become increasingly destructive with its constant attack on the human mind, and by encouraging stark social divisions. It’s easy to fuss and fight and attack others when you’re not face-to-face, with a keyboard and words as your weapons.

We anxiously watch people’s reactions to our posts; we begin to find our self-worth in how many “likes” we get! Adolescents especially often regress socially and emotionally. Depression is at an all-time high. Suicide among girls under age 13 has risen 186% in recent years. Among teens, suicide has increased by 150%! Society no longer interacts with others on a personal level. We are divided today like never before.

As Christians, how do we respond to these alarming facts? 1) We must recognize that our enemy is not man, but the spiritual forces of evil. As long as we perceive the enemy as our fellow man, we will continue to fight one another. We must find common ground; we must communicate. Otherwise, how do we share the Gospel?

2) Guard what you read and follow online. Never open “suggested for you” articles or products. Don’t share things that you have not verified. Do your own research.

3) Don’t be a mouse running on a wheel. Limit your time online and especially the time and content allowed to your children. Computers and iphones should not be a babysitter.

4) Put Jesus first. Pray! Be witnesses in every aspect of your life. Ensure your attack is not against man, but against Satan and his ideology.

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

All Scripture is inspired by God or “God breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16). Taking into account the attributes of God accompanied by reasoning, there are inevitable conclusions in regard to inspiration. First, the same Spirit that guided the Old Testament prophets guided the apostles into all truth (1 Peter 1:10-12; John 16:12). Therefore, there is perfect harmony beginning with the first word in Genesis through the end of Revelation. The Spirit revealed the Scriptures in a perfect, orderly fashion. They were given beyond our capability to imagine, reflecting the power and purpose of God. Secondly, the Scriptures are adequate (2 Timothy 3:17). They provide man with all things needed for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). They are to be read and understood (2 Corinthians 1:13), and we are not to “go beyond what is written: (1 Corinthians 4:6). They give the wisdom that leads to salvation (2 Timothy 3:15), which supplies all of man’s spiritual needs. Thirdly, the Scripture is God’s final and complete revelation to man. God once spoke to the prophets in various ways, but in these “last days” He speaks only through the revelation of Christ (Hebrews 1:1-2). Since the apostles were guided into all truth (John 16:13), no truth remains that God chose to reveal to man. Claims of continued or additional revelation from God fail to grasp the finality of Scripture. “The faith” or the doctrine of Christ was “once and for all time delivered” (Jude 3), and will be the standard for final judgment (John 12:48). Fourthly, provisions for commands made through inspiration are attainable, and what God has promised He is able to perform (Romans 4:21). The present-day view of inspired Scripture implies its weakness or inadequacy. Reliance on emotions or feelings and acceptance of diverse doctrines, contrary gospels and obvious division fails to understand the necessary implications of inspiration.

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

Pastor: Bro. Bill Styron

We began our meeting in the fellowship hall with coffee and our SS lesson from Acts 13 where we are challenged to obey the Holy Spirit’s call to service, being confident that He will provide direction. and remembering that He will enable us to fulfill His call even in the face of opposition. God calls us to proclaim His Word, not philosophy, politics, or personal ideas. Preach means to proclaim. The Gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection. As we grow we reflect Jesus. We need to obey the Holy Spirit and stop quenching it; always willing to speak up for the Lord. The whole world needs Jesus.

Bro. Gus sang “Sin Will Take You Farther” and Bro. Bill sang “When He Was on the Cross”.

Bro. Bill took the morning message from Isaiah 20. We cannot be faithful to God if we do not go to church. When we are committed to God, we can know that He will answer our prayers.

Bro. Bill and Bro. Gus sang several songs before Bro. Gus brought the evening message from Genesis. He took us back to the Garden of Eden; and walked us through the creation, fall, and God’s plan of salvation. God has a plan for each of us but we have a free will rather we follow that plan.

After the evening service, we fellowshipped with an evening meal.

We have Sunday School at 10; worship service at 11; evening service at 5:30; and Wednesday night Bible Study at 6. We invite you to come grow in God’s Word and fellowship with us as we keep pressing on for Jesus.

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.

Rocky Branch Baptist Church

Associate Pastor: Stephen Murry News: Brenda Pace

“My eyes are fixed on Heaven. That blessed land so fair. I know that Jesus’ going to get me there.” Unless we are raptured up to Heaven first, death is inevitable. As Christians, we know where we will spend Eternity. In the meantime, we should live for the Lord: Philippians 1: 6 – being confident of this very thing that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. As we are reminded in verses 21 and 23 – For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. As a Christian, death is not to be feared. 2 Corinthians 5:8 – to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

Our eternal destiny is Heaven. In Second Timothy, Paul states: I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. In Heaven we will be perfect, surrounded by beauty, rest from discouraging doubts, have perfect fellowship and love.

The delights of the redeemed in Heaven will be beholding the Savior’s Glory, receiving rewards earned, which we will give back to Jesus, and singing praises to our Savior! “The world weighs heavy on me. It tries to bring me down. But it won’t keep me from that Holy Ground.”
