From the Pastor’s Desk

               Isaiah 43:18-19  Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.  Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. No one likes to talk about sin. “No one wants to be negative.” But God has a higher purpose. He doesn’t want to concentrate on the negative. He wants to remove it! As a pastor I have found it is hard to preach on sin. Because people have become so comfortable in sin, they get upset and angry if you preach on sin, then they quit worshiping and even quit the church.   But He wants to do A New thing in us so we don’t just drag through our guilt. He wants us to add to our “righteousness and a depth of righteousness conduct.” He wants to conform us to the image of messiah, in thought, in word, and in deed. He wants to make us pure.  The Fire of God purify, burns away the old flesh, the old self. The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a baptism in fire. You can not choose between the spirit and the fire. They are inseparable, one and the same. There are not two baptisms, one in the “spirit” and the other in “fire.” There is one baptism only in the spirit and fire. Matt 3:11.   When the Holy Spirit came on the Day of Pentecost, he arrived with tongues of fire. One hundred and twenty men and women were divinely empowered and supernaturally endued. Heaven’s Power invaded the earth. And those 120 then shook their whole world. What have we received today? We’ve got plenty of Tongues, but almost no fire; plenty of formulas, but almost no flames. We are high on unction, but low on function.  Where is the Holy heat of His Presence?   Back to what I was saying in the beginning. God wants to do a New thing in you. With New  revelation and New Promises. New victories and New experiences.                                                                              God Bless you in the New Year                                                                                            Pastor Denny

If you have not received that gift of eternal life with Him, then pray this short prayer to the One who gave us victory over death through Jesus Christ.I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness.  I believe that Jesus died for my sins.  I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and live as my personal Savior.  I will confess you before men, study your Word and live according to your will as you guide me.  Thank you for sending Jesus so that I might have eternal life. Your Word says in Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the hearth man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.Ame
