why is it that we have allowed people to have their way with or faith. People contend for what they dont belive in. Cant we speak up for what we belive in? We can't talk about God in the public places, but, people can post nudes all over. Our children are taught the ways of the world, and it is a crime to teach them righteouness.

We proclaim what we belive, they can only belive or choose not to belive. But let our voices be heard. I think we have slept so much to the point that Christ have been taken out of Christmas. And it's all about him. You say "happy holidays" I'll say "Merry Christmas". It's been about him from the very beginning.

BE BLESSED MAN OF GOD, JESUS PRAYED TO THE FATHER FOR HIS DISCIPLES IN JOHN 17:9, 10 HE SAID: I PRAY FOR THEM: I PRAY NOT FOR THE WORLD, BUT FOR THEM WHICH THOU HAST GIVEN ME: FOR THEY ARE THINE. AND ALL MINE ARE THINE AND THINE ARE MINE AND I AM GLORIFIED IN THEM. PRIOR TO THIS JESUS SAID IN JOHN 6:37 ALL THAT THE FATHER GIVETH ME SHALL COME TO ME: AND HIM THAT COMETH TO ME I WILL IN NO WISE CAST OUT. GOD KNOWS THOSE THAT ARE HIS AND THOSE HE HAS CHOSEN AND IF YOU'VE COME TO JESUS; TO LIVE A LIFE FOR HIM; PRAISE GOD! YOU WERE CHOSEN, BECAUSE JESUS SAYS NO MAN CAN COME UNTO ME , EXCEPT IT WERE GIVEN UNTO HIM OF MY FATHER; JOHN 6:65; NOW THAT'S GOOD NEWS! HALLELUJAH! AS JESUS PRAYED FOR THE DISCIPLES, AND WE ALSO WERE BUILT UPON THE SAME FOUNDATION OF THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS, JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF BEING THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE (HE HOLDS EVERYTHING TOGETHER). THIS PRAYER APPLIES TO US TODAY. JESUS SAYS IN JOHN 17:14,-16; I HAVE GIVEN THEM THY WORD---AND THE WORLD HATETH THEM, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT OF THE WORLD, EVEN AS I AM NOT OF THE WORLD. WE ARE IN THE WORLD BUT NOT OF IT. THE WORLD BY IT'S WISDOM KNOW NOT GOD 1ST.COR. 1:21. THE WORD TELLS US NOT TO BE CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD: BUT BE YE TRANSFORMED....ROM. 12:2. THEREFORE IF ANY MAN BE IN CHRIST HE IS A NEW CREATURE; OLD THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY; BEHOLD, ALL THINGS ARE BECOME NEW. 2 COR.5:17. 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 FOREVER. 1ST. JOHN 2:16,17. TRUST IN THE LORD, AND DO GOOD;... DELIGHT THYSELF ALSO IN THE LORD AND HE SHALL GIVE THEE THE DESIRES OF THINE HEART. PS. 37:3,4. GOD IS WORTHY TO BE PRAISED IN THE NAME OF JESUS, BE BLESSED MAN OF GOD.
Brother Samuel, God's blessings and peace be with you. Christmas was never about Christ! Christmas is a pagan holiday that is mixed with putting Christ there just as Easter has been done. It's ok to celebrate those holidays but don't try to make it a spiritual thing. I ask you do you really believe Christ was born on Dec 25th? Do you really believe passing out chocolate bunnies and hiding boiled eggs is about the resurrection of Christ?
The birth of Jesus is approximately around September 23rd not December 25th. Three different ways to figure that: 1). Luke 1:5, 1Chr 24:1, Neh 12:4. Abia's course (Lev 21:12) was end of June. Luke 1:24 Elisabeth conceived with John the Baptist end of June. The angel Gabriel told Mary she would conceive and that was six months after Elisabeth end of December, Mary conceived so nine months give end of September.
2).Backwards from Jesus death: cruxified on the Passover, was in late March; earthly ministry was 3 1/2 years long; Luke 3:23 gives beginning of Jesus earthly ministry, He began to be about 30 years of age around His birthday; if He died end of March beginning of April and His ministry was 3 1/2 years His birth had to be around the end of September not December. 3). Luke 2:8, shepherds wouldn't be outside in the cold, in verse 7 no room in the inn because in Spetember the feast of Tabernacle so everyone showed up so there wasn't any room. Find that in Zach 14: 18 - 19. I think ist's clear Jesus wasn't born December 25th. Remeber a lot of paganism has infiltrated the church and the world and it started with Nimrod in Babel (Babylon). Men have been perverting God's truths for centuries. The early church in the Book of Acts never celebrated Easter, no Easter sunrise, lent, good friday services. They are not found in the Word of God. They are traditions but we celebrate Easter as spiritual. Don't forget Constantine supposedly converted to Christianity never left the Babylonia pagan religion. Many pagan customs infiltrated the church during his rein 500 years after Christ rose from the dead lent was added to Easter holiday. During the Dark Ages all kinds of other pagan cerimonies entered into the church like the Eshtar egg symbol of fertility MOther of the gods whom little white waffers were baked (Jer 7:18) and burning of incense to Baal (as Catholocism). We need to understand and seperate traditions from spirituality. May God bless you and continue to work in you.
Thank you Man of Valor, Bro John because your explanation, guided by the Holy Ghost, really enlightened me. I knew about some of the facts such as Jesus birht and death, a little about Easter ect... but hearing it all put together was remarkable. I am saving your reply for future studies. Be blessed and contine in His way.
PASTOR JOHN; MAY GOD BLESS YOU MIGHTiLY
Be blessed Carl and LaTrice, MAY WE ALL ABOUND IN THE WORD AND WORKS OF THE LORD
IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
AMEN!
I'd like to add a poem found in Africa from a man that was martyred (killed) for his faith. Forgive me because every single time I read or share this it brings tears streaming down my eyes and I can't see what I'm typing.

I'm part of the fellowship of the unashamed.
The dye has been cast, I have stepped over the line.
The decision has been made.
I'm a disciple of Jesus Christ.
I won't look back, slow down or back away.
My past is redeemed; my presence makes sense; my futrue is secure.
I'm finished and done, with low living, sight walking, smooth knees, colorless dreams, pained visions, wordly talkings; cheap giving and dwarf goals.
My face is set; my gate is fast; my goal is heaven; my road is narrow; my way is rough; my companions are few; my Guide is reliable; my mission is clear.
I won't give up, shut up or let up; until I have stayed up, stored up, and played up for the cause of Jesus Christ.
I must go till He comes; give till I drop; preach till everyone knows; work till He stops me.
And when He comes for His own, He will have no trouble recoginzing me;
Because my banner will have been clear.

This brother of God was killed in Africa for his belief. THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!! We in America have no idea what that means because we don't have to worry about things of that nature in this country. We aren't tested like that and it keeps me grounded and helps me realize what giving your life for your believe in Him is all about. This wasn't some 200 year ago it was in the 1990's in Rawanda. God bless you.r
BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!, I hope you don't mind me copying this for my own use Bro, John. Love u my brother, stay on the Lord's side.......
My dear Brother West you know you can pass this on to as many as you can. Love you Brother.
THANK YOU BROTHER JOHN FOR THIS POEM; THE WORD SAYS: BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH ARE PERSECUTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS SAKE; FOR THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. AMEN.
GOD BLESS
Sister Holman this Brother of Christ even in the face of death would not deny his Lord and Saviour or his God. How many in this country would face death and hold on as he did? It reminds me of those persecuted in Smyrna and like this brother was faithful unto death and will receive a crown of life from our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
we must also remember that we are in the World, but not of it!!!!!!!111
You see folks many of the faith are caught up in titles, and fortune and fame seeking, instead of seeking first the Kingdom of god and all of it's righteousness. Many spend too much time with things that are " All to do about nothing"
I know of some misionaries who tel their stories and many of these stories are horrific, yet they continued/continue too hold up the blood stained banner. you or any other can say what they will, but how many of us will do what is required......

Some have fallen away, not asleep, but for those that have not we must fervently, and purosefully, fulfil the Call...

Min. A.L. West Sr.
So true about titles, fame, fortune and recognition to add. These things don't mean a thing but to the individual it means something to. In this world but not of it is what I strive to obtain every single day of my life Brother West. God bless.
