What is faith and salvation to you? All to Jesus….

Posted by Scott on November 7, 2008

Watch this 3 part video from great preachers of old:  Tozer, Ravenhill, & Reidhead.  The lettering is hard to read, but the messages from these men are timely and just as relevant as they were the day they were spoken as God’s Word is still relevant today as it was 2000 plus years ago.  Let the messages with God’s Holy Word pierce you deep.


PART 1

PART 2

PART 3

We should have no other plans or purposes in this life other than to glorify our Almighty God!

“O Lord, God of Our Fathers!”

Posted by Scott on October 17, 2008

New Hymn I wrote the other day…based on the Scriptures found in 2 Chronicles 20…maybe it you will like it….this is amateur writing of course.

1. O Lord, God of our fathers,

You rule over all the kingdoms

Both in heaven and on earth

For power and might are in Your hand,

No one can withstand

Give thanks to the Lord, He endures forever!

2. O Lord, God of our fathers,

We cry out to you on earth,

for our salvation and deliverence

We know You will hear us,

and we know You will save us.

Give thanks to the Lord, He endures forever!

3. O Lord, God of our fathers,

We are powerless to win alone

and we know not what to do,

But our eyes are fixed on You, Father

Please, fight for us today, O Lord.

Give thanks to the Lord, He endures forever!

4. O Lord, God of our fathers,

We will not be afraid of the enemy

the battle is not ours to win

But the victory is sure,

You, O Lord, will deliver us today.

Give thanks to the Lord, He endures forever!”

Starving at the Father’s Table!

Posted by Scott on May 3, 2008

from The Pursuit of God by A. W. Tozer

So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.” –John 21:15

There is today no lack of Bible teachers to set forth correctly the principles of the doctrines of Christ, but too many of these seem satisfied to teach the fundamentals of the faith year after year, strangely unaware that there is in their ministry no manifest Presence, nor anything unusual in their personal lives. They minister constantly to believers who feel within their breasts a longing which their teaching simply does not satisfy.

I trust I speak in charity, but the lack in our pulpits is real. Milton’s terrible sentence applies to our day as accurately as it did to his: “The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed.” It is a solemn thing, and no small scandal in the Kingdom, to see God’s children starving while actually seated at the Father’s table. The Pursuit of God, 8.

“Lord, I trust I’m not being critical, but it seems to me that there are more and more churches where people are starving at the Father’s table. I sense the lack in our pulpits of which Tozer speaks, and pray that You might bring a refreshing. Amen.”

The Ushering in of the other Gospel of Christ!

Posted by Scott on March 9, 2008

Be aware of the false prophets, false messages, and the church that delivers another message of Christ, but is not the message that the apostle Paul and other original disciples preached.
