Greeting to all people of the world

Greeting to all people of the world, The Lord has blessed us once again by His grace and mercy to share in His word to the world over the Internet.

Before you begin today's church ministry, did you STOP to pray and thank Jehovah for His grace and mercy for allowing you to be among the living once again? If not, STOP what you are doing immediately and give thanks and praises glorifying Him for this moment of life, because the next moment God may call for you in death. Will you be ready? If not, secular people come to Jesus in faith, then repentance and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Then you will be saved; then find a Bible believing church that teaches and preaches God's infallible word. Christian's, are you prepared for death? If not, get your house-self-in order for you know not the day nor hour of death, nor His coming.
May the God of us all bless those that are bedridden at home, in convalescent homes, hospitals, incarcerated or serving in the Armed Forces find…

Nehemiah 2:5, 11–20
5 And I said unto the king, If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favor in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers’ sepulchres, that I may build it.
.............
11 So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.
12 And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.
13 And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before the dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were consumed with fire.
14 Then I went on to the gate of the fountain, and to the king’s pool…

The International Sunday School Lesson

Lesson for September 27, 2015
Standing Firm Against Opposition Acts 7:1-53 Dr. Mark Scott wrote this treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson. Scott teaches preaching and New Testament at Ozark Christian College, Joplin, Missouri, and has held preaching ministries in Missouri, Illinois, and Colorado. This lesson treatment is published in the September 20 issue of The Lookout magazine, and is also available online at www.lookoutmag.com. ______ By Mark Scott  Opposition always hurts. It especially hurts when it comes from kin. Stephen found that out. The second internal challenge that the church faced (certain widows were being neglected in the daily distribution of food) caused the church to select seven men to handle this oversight (Acts 6:1-6). One of those seven men was Stephen. Even though Stephen was not an apostle, he gave the longest speech in the book of Acts. It is hard not to overestimate the significance of his speech.
