A Word from the Minister
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope the LORD is,” Jeremiah 17:7. All the answers to every question can be found in the Bible, which is, “THE MESSAGE OF HOPE.” Trusting the God of all creation should not be difficult. If you can’t trust God, who else can you trust?
The God of all Grace says, He has made the Earth by His Power. “He has established the world by His Wisdom, and has stretched out the heavens by His Discretion,” Jeremiah 10:12. This is the truth and the proof of a Living God. All the wise men of the world could not compare to the All Wise God of Heaven.
The Bible says, “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty. And base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yes, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are: That no flesh should glory in His Presence. But of Him are you in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us Wisdom, and Righteousness, and Sanctification, and Redemption: That, according as it is written he who glories, let him glory in the Lord,” 1st Corinthians 1:27-31.
The human race has used every trick, scheme, and gimmick possible to get mankind to honor and bow their knees to idol gods. The solution to the problems every community is facing today with drug addictions, murders, thief, sexual misconduct, brutality, etc.…, will never be resolved by exhibiting more hatred, and prejudice. “THE MESSAGE OF HOPE,” comes as a means of encouraging believers to take their rightful position. Prayer by faith is the only way to get through to heaven, and see the results on earth.
Large arenas have been built to encourage full support for football, baseball games, and basketball, attracting record numbers of fans… That is not a sin but when mankind is seeking entertainment in any form more than God, huge problems will occur. When the greater emphasis in life starts to become more prevalent than spending time obeying God, a self-examination must take place… Finger pointing is not profitable unless it is pointing at yourself. “THE MESSAGE OF HOPE,” cannot keep getting lost among the shuffle of selfishness and greed. Prioritizing your schedule to include the pleasures of this world first, and God second is one of the reasons why this present generation is struggling to survive.
What has happened to a society of people who has gained more financially but less spiritually? Are moral values and family commitment being sacrificed because God has become an afterthought? It is time to come back to your First Love. The God of our parents, who may have had less financially but were rich spiritually because their hearts were turned toward God. They trusted and obeyed, keeping Him first in their lives. “THE MESSAGE OF HOPE,” gave them strength to face life each day, and it is the ONLY MESSAGE, that will survive the TEST today.
