Facebook friends please know that I love you. I love you so much, I will share a truth with you today. I see churches who once followed truth, but has now gone from the truth. You see, God does not change. His word was the same yesterday, is the same today, and will be the same tomorrow. If your church tells you to do something that is not backed up by the word of God, what do you need to do? You are going to have to stand before God one day and give an account for your sin. Preachers, and members of these churches beware. Gal. 5:7-8: Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. Now my question to you is this: Who is the other one that persuaded you? The answer is Satan. There is only good and evil. If the good one did not cause you to err from the truth, then it was Satan. I would say to you, Repent!

SANCTITY OF LIFE SUNDAY - JANUARY 19, 2014
If you do not speak about this in your church - maybe it's time to start. These are our precious little children whose lives are being taken by abortion. President Ronald Reagan designated January 22, 1984 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. The date was chosen to coincide with the 11th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case. The weekend of January 19th, 2014 many churches across America will be praying and speaking for this atrocity to end.

Have you said "Thank You" lately?

A THANKFUL HEART
By Fay Bouknight
To be thankful is an outward expression of our inner feelings. We are known by the fruits we bear; therefore, if we possess a thankful heart, it will be known.
Why is it so important for us to be thankful? Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” That is pretty powerful. Paul said that “this is the will of God.” How many times do we hear this in and out of our churches? Frequently, we hear the statement, “I want to do the will of God.”
What is the first and foremost blessing for which to be thankful? We should be thankful, first of all, to Christ for the gift He gave to us so that we may have a chance to live. By His death, He gave us a choice to live or to die. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8). How often do we thank Him for the Cross? Do we ever – or is it something that we take for granted? Is it because we are so good that He owed that to us? On the contrary – He owes us absolutely nothing, but we owe Him everything.
Furthermore, we should not just thank God for the good things in our lives, but we are to thank Him continuously for everything: “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (5:20).
Thankfulness should be a part of our everyday lives. Christ always gave thanks before He broke bread. Sometimes, when we hear someone praying and giving thanks for the food He has provided for us, it seems as though the prayer has a ritualistic and repetitious sound to it. When we pray, are we really giving thanks to God for what He has so wondrously provided for us, or are we speaking words with no effect?
As we aspire to have a thankful heart, we need only to stop and think about what we have and what a blessed people we truly are. It should make all of us want to fall on our knees before Him.
We must be careful not to take Christ for granted, thinking that somehow He owes us. There are countless times that He has extended to us the compassion, love, and mercy to heal our sickly bodies and those of whom we love. Do we ever fail to acknowledge Him for His healing power? Do we ever fail to acknowledge Him for His healing power? Do we thank Him for our healing, or do we merely pray for healing? And when it comes, do we forget to acknowledge Him with a simple “thank you”?
“And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go show yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger, and he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole” (Luke 17:11-19).
These ten were pleading and wanting something from God. Does this story sound familiar? When we want something from God, we are very quick to acknowledge Him, but after He comes through for us, do we continue to acknowledge Him? The nine who did not return simply took for granted their healing and went on their way. One might say that this was back then – times have changed – this would not happen today. It happens all of the time. All we need to do is take inventory, and we will realize that some of us could possibly be in that number that does not return. It takes more than just a ritualistic “thank you” from the lips. The only one of the ten that came back, thanked Him with a loud voice, glorified God, fell down on his face at His feet, and gave thanks was the least likely to say “thank you” in the eyes of the Jews, who followed the letter of the law.
Sometimes, the people who proclaim to be righteous are the ones who are actually lacking in the will of God. The Samaritan was considered a “nobody” by Jewish standards. Samaria was the region of the historical northern kingdom of Israel. The Jews hated Samaritans because they were a race formed through interracial marriage, and they worshiped differently from the Jews. Their Bible (Torah) was the first five books of the Old Testament; they did not acknowledge the rest of the Old Testament at all.
Christ told us about the Samaritan for a specific reason. The Samaritan could be compared with anyone who is different from us. It could be someone below our standards as a Christian. However, Christ sees and thinks differently from how we see and think. He definitely told us that this man was a Samaritan, not by chance but for a specific purpose. This presents another lesson to be learned: this could be an alcoholic, prostitute, minority, or someone who is poor. No matter what one’s background or who he is, he can be saved. Are we as Christians like the religious Jews of that time?
Giving Christ thanks has great meaning and purpose to Him, for it is a display of who we really are. Do we like to be thanked for something we have done or a gift we have given? We are made in the image of Christ and are no different from Him in that aspect. We enjoy being thanked for doing something good. It makes us feel pleased with ourselves. Just a simple, kind word encourages us to do good in any way that we can.
Christ needs no encouragement to do good, for no bad is in Him; however, it is His will for us to give Him thanks. He expressed this when He asked, “Were there not ten?” It was His will for all ten to return and give thanks unto Him. It always makes Him feel good to know that we acknowledge Him in everything. Let us be as the one who returned to give thanks unto Him.

A wonderful article on Sanctification. Please read, you will be blessed. bibletruthmagazine.com

The Old Paths of True Sanctification
by Rev. Doris Leist
Minister of The Church of God

“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein” (Jeremiah 6:16).

Many have someone who has traveled the old paths. Today they are in heaven with the Lord because of the old path they took while here on Earth. There are new paths of false sanctification that definitely lead to another destination.

“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein” (Isaiah 35:8).

Sanctification – What is it?

In Strong’s Concordance, a Greek word for sanctification is “Hagiazo” which is defined as holy, treat as holy, set apart, sanctification, purify, consecrate, separate and, etc. Sanctification is a doctrine of God’s holy word. It is one of the 29 prominent teachings of The Church of God. It is a second definite work of grace wrought in the heart by the Holy Ghost. It is an act of cleansing or purifying the heart. God planned sanctification, Jesus provided sanctification, and the Holy Ghost performs it.
In Rev. Robert J. Pruitt’s book, “Death of the Third Nature”, He says, the word “sanctification” is synonymous with holiness. It is also referred to as being dead to sin; cleansed from all inbred pollution; the body of sin destroyed; a clean heart; a pure heart; the second blessing; destruction of the root of sin; death of the old man; and cleansed from all unrighteousness. Sanctification means all of these things.

Sanctification is necessary because even after we have been saved and justified, the carnal or adamic nature is still in man, therefore, without sanctification, man is unable to please God. “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:6-8).

The doctrine of sanctification is hated by Satan because once we are sanctified, we are no longer under His control. Those who teach against sanctification such as Atheists and others, I believe they contribute to the immoral values in this world and to the horrible condition of what this world has become. The world has become consumed with the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh and the pride of life. Sanctification will take the world out of you.
In the beginning Adam and Eve were not bothered by the world. They were holy, fellowshipped with God daily and enjoyed all of God’s blessings until Satan entered the Garden and they fell into sin because of their disobedience to God. They once longed for His daily visit, and now they hid from Him because their nature had changed. They had the divine nature in them until they sinned and now another nature had taken residence, the adamic or satanic nature.

Since that time all of humanity has been born with two natures. A human nature and the adamic nature. God being the loving Father that He is set the plan into motion to remedy the situation. We are blessed beyond measure to know about this great plan and experience it.

The plan was that He would send His son to die and shed His precious blood to eradicate this deadly evil. “Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified" (”Hebrews 10:9-14).

We are the beneficiaries of this glorious plan. We are sanctified by His precious blood. The old adamic nature has been eradicated, and only by true sanctification does this happen. When we are saved, all of the sins we have committed have been forgiven, but that old nature is still lurking. We have not been forgiven of the adamic nature because we had nothing to do with having it. Now, I have three (3) natures dwelling within me. My human nature, my new divine nature and my old adamic (sinful) nature. Something has to give. I will yield to one or the other. Without sanctification many people will eventually yield to the old nature. This is why God wants all saved people to be sanctified wholly, so that the roaring lion cannot get to us.

It has been said that the blood of Jesus diminishes Satan from a roaring lion to a mouse with a microphone. The only thing that will stop a hungry lion from roaring is a stronger lion starting to roar. This lion is of the tribe of Judah who roars for us!
It is the will of God that we are sanctified.

“For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor” (1st Thessalonians 4:3-4).

“For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness” (1 Thessalonians 4:7).

“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).

“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation.” (1 Peter 1:15).

“Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God” (11 Corinthians 7:1).

Now, we are able, as Adam and Eve were in the beginning, to have sweet fellowship with the Father and walk in this glorious experience. “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:14-16).

Justification is what God does for us. Sanctification is what God does in us. Justification puts us in a right relationship with God. Sanctification exhibits the fruit of that relationship, a life separated from a sinful world and dedicated unto God. As sin is rooted out in our lives by sanctification, we can now bring forth fruit unto holiness. The blood of Jesus marks us internally, externally, and eternally. “And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it upon the tip of Aaron’s right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot” (Leviticus 8:23).

Two thoughts are prominent in the definition of sanctification: (1) separation from evil; and (2) dedication to God. Sanctification, as a condition of the heart, affects every facet of our lives. It is the heart of our Christian faith, the theme of the Holy Scriptures and the purpose of God for His people. God desires us to live holy. We are to come out from the world and be separate.
"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever” (1 John 2:15-17).
There are many “dumpster divers” looking for treasures in this world, but for the child of God there are no treasures to be found in the garbage dumps of this world. Our treasures are in heaven not on this earth. “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1-4). Paul is saying that not only is the adamic nature crucified, but one’s own natural will is now completely yielded to God. Paul taught them how to walk after the spirit and not after the flesh.

How to Stay Sanctified.
“I am the true vine and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the world which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches; He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” (John 15:1-5)
In 1871 Fr: J. Boudreau wrote a short story entitled, “The Happiness of Heaven”. It is a short story about a kindhearted king who was hunting in the forest when he discovers a blind orphan living there. The king takes the blind orphan to his palace and adopts him as his own son. The king gives to his blind son the best education and training money can buy. The blind son loves his father dearly and is grateful for everything his father has done for him.

When the son turns twenty (20), a surgeon performs an experimental surgery on his eyes and for the first time in his life he is able to see. The royal prince, who was once a starving orphan, realizes how he has been blessed with fine food, fragrant gardens and lovely music. But when he gains his sight, he doesn’t care to look at the wealth of his kingdom or the wonders of his palace. Instead he only wants to gage upon the face of his father; the king who saved him, adopted him and loved him.
We will do the same thing in heaven. We were all poor, blind, and wretched orphans. The King of Kings has adopted us into His family. When we arrive in heaven and our faith finally turns into sight, we aren’t going to be looking for the pearly gates, or streets of gold, we will only have eyes to look upon the One who has redeemed us. There is a wonderful promise found in Revelation 22:3-4: “And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads”.

We must stay sanctified.

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is I heaven” (Matthew 7:21).

There must be a continuous fulfillment of righteous living in order to stay sanctified. Many people do not understand their need for further cleansing after they are saved. The Church of God must teach it, preach it and live it, so the world may see it. As Christians, we must pray, seek God daily, study His word, and witness to others, so as to improve our effectiveness as Christians.
We have nothing to do with the act of sanctification. That is what God does, but as Christians by our own volition we, step by step, separate ourselves from this world and all of its unholy practices. “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1).

We must separate ourselves from all that is unholy and unclean and by continually yielding our bodies as holy instruments unto God for His glory and purpose. When we surrender ourselves to these acts, sanctification soon becomes the habit of our lives and Satan cannot defeat us. Physical health is to the body, as sanctification or holiness is to our souls.

Sending you a very edited version of a FACEBOOK post I did last month and if you care to use it, feel free to do so, that and any needed editing. If you don't want to use it, fee free to delete it... "I MAY use to have wondered WHY? Why do SO many people eat at the CLOCK restaurant; one of those hamburger and/or meat and two sides kind of restaurants, but since we’ve joined in the “so many” crowd who eats there, I have been given at least one of the answers to my question; their food is good. It isn‘t the fanciest in the world nor the most expensive; expensive enough for us, but they have good tasting food. I like their turnip greens; growing up I may have never guessed that I would like turnip greens! I don’t know their recipe but there may be some sugar in there, and whatever else. Their chicken, sweet potato casserole, beans, tea, etc. can get good reviews, my brother-in-law who lives in Florida wants to go there and get a hotdog plate when they visit, and the list might could go on and on, but I believe that the good food is something that helps to draw the people in; those who are searching for good food in that kind of food category, that is. Anyway, it can be a VERY busy place and there can be times if one waits too long after noon they might get their name taken and wait for a table, or leave; and this isn’t on Sunday after church because they’re not open on Sundays. Recently, something “CLICKED” with me about that restaurant, “They don’t have TV’S in there like some of the other similar restaurants in the area have!” Why? Because they haven’t needed the entertainment to get the customers! They have the good tasting food; in fact, if they added TVs it might cost them money because people might stay longer watching the entertainment, not emptying the tables as quickly to make room for other customers wanting to come in and eat; so, less customers, less money. A while back, we were a little later going and I didn’t know how the crowd would be but it was WAY down and we had no trouble finding a table, but we had an opinion as to why it might be that way, and the waitress agreed with us without our even having mentioned it to her. See, we live in a place which might could be considered in fairly close proximity to Clemson, SC. Yeah, that place where there’s that college which has a football team which recently won some kind of trophy, and they were having a parade for the team AND it was being shown on TV that morning; we didn’t know for sure, but it could have been that some people were staying home to watch that OR some could have even been going to a restaurant where they had TV’S so they could eat and watch the parade; eat and be entertained, but our waitress may have felt like they would get bombarded; my word, later, and the people had started coming in before we left. These days a lot of people are not willing to go to a church which serves God’s word as the main course without the TV, big screen, and/or other entertainment for which they are searching. No, they had rather go somewhere where the “food,” the doctrine is not as good, some is even poisonous, rather than that, or even stay home and starve to death spiritually, so this can be different in the spiritual realm of life, just because the crowd will NOT come doesn’t mean that the “food” is not good, it may be that it is God's approved food, “recipe” for their life, which is not supposed to be changed by sweetening, spicing it up and/or watering it down to draw the crowds. Even if people try to do that, God’s word still remains true and changes for no one. “Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? Knowing that it was the Lord.” John 21:12 People may need to ask themselves WHY they’re dining where they’re dining. WHY they‘re going to church where they‘re going, is it because the truth of God’s word is being served up or rather is it for a meal of poisoned doctrine with entertainment which has been cooked up by man? Time is ticking away, and as hard as it may be to accept, none of us have as long to make decisions as we used to have for our earthly “clock“ will soon run out; some sooner than others, and we will be in eternity, ready or not. “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” II Corinthians 6:2
