December 9,2008

Time is drawing closer every single day. It seems like I keep repeating myself at the direction of the Lord. In every thing that I preach and teach the same message is coming up. I believe a great storm is on the horizon for those who have decided to live their lives apart from God. It seems like so many are paying no attention at the warnings that are going forth. I see now that this was one of the main reasons for so many erroneous teachings and false doctrines going forth in these last days. This is why so many Christians are scared to death right now is because they know what they have been teaching and living is not of God. It is time to get serious like never before! Many believe that things will get better this year. This will not get better for a nation without God, but will only get worse. More jobs lost, more economic woes, more families doing without!

Many ask me why I would say these things when I am supposed to be a faith teacher. I have watched so many Christians decide to do what they wanted to do instead of what God instructed them to do. Now they are suffering not for God, but for the decisions they have made without God. The Lord told me just a few weeks ago that it would shock me at who would become a part of this ministry in the days to come. The reason for this would be because of the situation and circumstances that would prevail in their lives due to their decisions to do as they pleased.

As I say all of these things our church members know this is not the mentality in our church. We have been experiencing increase in every area. This past Sunday was just another example. God is moving in the lives of his people that are obedient to him. It is so great to see new faces in the church weekly. It is so great to be financially sound and increasing as we watch the economy sour. God takes care of his people that submit to his will. Thank God for the fruit of faithfulness!

Please remember that we are no longer living in a time when we can get by doing our own thing! Let's get back with God! Jesus is the only way!

Until next time,

Pastor J

December 3,2008

Well, it seems like just yesterday that this year was beginning and now Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas is drawing near. As usual, Thanksgiving was very busy for us, but also very enjoyable. It is always good to see family you have not seen in a year and see how they are doing. Our family is doing great and God gets all of the glory for that.

As I have been saying for some time now I believe we are living in the most critical times of our lives. I know many have been predicting things to get better, but the Holy Spirit told me several months ago that God's word never promised us that he was coming back for a glorious world, but a glorious church. If your hope and faith is in the world you are in trouble. I have watched so many people make fun of the gospel we live and preach, but it doesn't seem to be so funny any more. It is time to get serious with God if you have not been.

I am so thankful for the ministry of my father that i was raised under. He was a man that refused to waiver no matter who ridiculed him. As a result of his faithfulness and now ours this ministry and our lives individually have not faltered at all. Thank God his word works in good times and in bad! It does hurt to see other people hurt and I believe we should do all we possibly can to reach out to them and help them. The most important thing we can do in these times is hold fast to the unchanging word of God. His word never fails!

Until next time,

Pastor J

Well, another week has come and gone. It is amazing at how fast this year has gone by. It is also amazing at how much things have changed since this time last year. Thank God in an ever changing world we serve a never changing God!

We have been praying daily for a fresh move of the Holy Spirit within the church. Over the last several weeks we have seen the power of God escalate every single week. During yesterday's services we had an individual rededicate their life to God as well as several instant healings in last night's healing service. It was absolutely amazing to see God touch people's lives in the way he is doing. The gifts of the Spirit have been flowing like never before and the impact has been awesome in the lives of the people. We have had some that have been out of church for years to return because of the way God is speaking into their lives.

I am learning daily that if we will just yield to God and allow him to guide us we will be a success at everything we do. Sometimes this is very hard to do with all of the foolishness in the world as well as in the church that you continually hear. There is so much being said that is contrary to the Word of God this day and time that you must continually stay in God's word in order to stay balanced. I see so many people go astray from God's plan for their lives because they listen to other people and take what they are saying hook, line, and sinker. The problem is that what they are saying is contrary to God's word.

Well, I pray each of you have a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy your families. We are praying for each of you and are here if you need us.

Until next time,

Pastor J

Thank God for the power of the Holy Ghost. We have been seeking God more than ever before for revival and he is showing up in a mighty way. He moved miraculously in both services yesterday and people's lives were changed. It is great to see people coming back as well as visitors that we've never seen before. God is so good!

I do not believe that many people, especially Christians, realize the times and seasons we are living in. It seems as if many are just waiting on things to get better not realizing that the word never promises us that the world will get better. As I was praying some time ago the Lord spoke to me and said, "Many people, including some christians, have bought into the American dream and the American dream is a dream without God." So many people have decided to go their own way apart from the Word of God and now is the time to get right with God. God never promised us that he was coming back for a glorious world, but a glorious church. It is time for the glory to return to the church of the living God in a way we have never seen before. If we will yield to him now and step out in faith he will show up in a glorious and mighty way. I know this to be true because we are seeing this weekly in the church. God is visiting those who are crying out for a visitation. It is time now that we wake up and realize that "with man it may be impossible, but with God all things are possible to him that believeth."

We must continue to pray for our leaders daily, our troops, our churches, and those that are lost. The best is truly yet to come for the church that stays with God and his word and moves by his Spirit.

Until next time,

Pastor J

November 13,2008

Hey everyone,

I know that when many people hear that Pastor Jason has a blog they will be shocked. Some of you will probably come and read it to begin with just to see if it is true. Why? Pastor is not the greatest with staying up to date with technology. What I do realize is that many people are hurting in this world and they need help. I don't care what the means is as long as they get the help. I believe we should endeavor to get them the word of encouragement and hope at any and all cost. I can't help but remember when I was separated from God and every word and prayer that was prayed for me meant the world to me. I don't believe that many christians realize the impact they are having when they lift others up and pray for them. God is visiting his people right now during these hard times in our country. It is time more than ever before to tell people that he is the answer.

I just finished writing the letter that goes along with the message of the month that we started sending out a couple of months ago. We send them out the 15th of every month. We are believing that lives are being changed and our distribution list is growning every month. Since we stepped out and obeyed God in this area he has blessed us greatly. We have many that have signed up on the website, and many of them are from states all across the U.S. It is so exciting to see God move as we obey him.

What will I blog about?

Most of all it will be what God is doing in my life. I think it is much more important to share with people what God is doing and to be a witness than it is to just chat. I want my blog to be somewhere that people can come and get encouragement for their lives.

As always I hope something I have said encouraged you to draw closer to God.

Until next time,

Pastor J
