Prayer

The new year is just beginning, it is only the 5th day of January, 2012; now is the time for all--Christian or secular--to turn over a new leaf--way of life. Christian's should rededicate their lives to the Lord in doing more for His service; secular people should rededicate their lives in accepting Jesus through faith and genuine repenting, accepting His Son Jesus as your Lord and Savior, your sins will forgiven; then and only then, immediately, the Holy Spirit of God indwell in you and your soul will be saved, name written in the Lamb Book of Life, and heaven is your home for eternity with the Lord.

In Jesus' name is my prayer for all of the ministry's reader's. Amen. - Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy

Jenner observed that milkmaids who contracted cowpox never contracted smallpox. Seeing the cause and effect, Jenner created a vaccine using a weakened form of the cowpox to innoculate his patients against smallpox. It worked, but most scientists dismissed it as a “folk remedy.” Pasteur knew he was on to something and began a series of experiments that laid the foundation for moder…

A believer’s stability for this life, as well as his confidence for eternity, rests solely on the written promises of God’s Word. The direction of the living God for our lives is very definite. It is found in a firm foundation—the written revelation: “Thus saith the Lord.” In the first stanza the sure foundation of the Christian faith is established as being the Word of God. This challenging question is posed: What more can God do than provide His very Word as a completed revelation of Himself to man?
