Remember to Remember
Memorial Day weekend provides the opportunity to say “thank you” to all of our national heroes who died to protect our freedoms here in the United States. Many men and women gave their lives in battle that we might remain the “land of the free.”
Memorial Day was originally called “Decoration Day.” Since 1868, Americans have been asked to remember the valiant warriors who died during the Civil War. In that terrible conflict well over 620,000 soldiers died from combat, accident, starvation, and disease.
Many courageous heroes fought in both of the armies. Too often the adversaries were related or had gone to school together. Friends ended up on opposite sides of the battle and had to confront each other in the combat zone. It was so sad, and the war was a big loss for our country.
Eventually, “Decoration Day” was changed to “Memorial Day.” Now, we honor all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. People of courage took dangerous positions to protect the homeland. How can we ever truly express our love and appreciation for what they have done.
Elizabeth Robbins Berry made the attempt to capture our gratitude in her poem The Unknown Dead, “Bravely they laid their all upon the altar, Counting as naught the sacrifice and pain, Theirs but to do and die without a falter – Ours to enjoy the victory and the gain.” Rest in peace. May we never forget.
Similarly, our Savior Jesus Christ fought a spiritual battle so that we may live free. The enemy Satan, tried to destroy Christ on many occasions, only to suffer eternal defeat on Resurrection Day. Jesus was placed in a grave, the stone was set and sealed. It appeared that Satan was victor.
But three day later, Jesus rose to eternal life and thereby defeated the Devil. As stated in 1 Corinthians 15:55 KJV states, “Where, o death, is your victory? Where, o death, is your sting?” The enemy who once flaunted his supposed power, has fallen powerless under the feet of the King of Kings!
But still, the enemy tries to trick people into thinking that he is equal to Jesus. Untrue, my friend, Christ is victor. If you feel that you are losing the battle, you must remember that the battle has already been won. We are on the winning side. The army of Christ is undefeated!
The Apostle Paul reminded us in Romans 8:37 NIV, “We are more than conquerors through Him [Christ] who loved us.” There is no enemy that is greater, and no power that can undo what Christ has already done. Stand firm. Be bold.
On this Memorial Day, remember the noble dead with sincere gratitude, and our risen Lord with adoration and praise. To God be the glory!
THANK YOU to those who faithfully send in funds each month to keep this ministry in operation. The high cost for WEB hosting and other expenses surrounding this ministry keep rising quickly. If more of you could begin to send in financial support weekly, monthly, or as you are able, this will relieve some of the pressure. Please pray about this need. Thanks and God bless you!

Make the most of every opportunity
Numbers 6:22-27 NLT - Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell Aaron and his sons to bless the people of Israel with this special blessing: ‘May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’ Whenever Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel in my name, I myself will bless them.”
Prayer: Dear Lord - All praise and glory to my great God and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you for dying for me and setting me free from the traps of this wicked world. How glorious it is to wake each morning and know that You are with me all day. As I read this Scripture, I am reminded that you bless and protect, and provide favor and peace. All I have needed your hand has provided.. Great is your faithfulness. In the name of Jesus I pray.
MAY I HELP YOU?
Therefore, comfort each other and edify one another.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
For stay at home Christians...
We started this ministry with you in mind. Recent reports state that many Christians no longer attend a church. They have been offended, or have to work, or they cannot physically leave their home, and so they stay at home.
Our heart is to reach out to you with Bible studies, hospital visitation, prayer for the sick, serving the Lord's Supper, counsel, etc. Just call on us and we will be your personal pastor.
There is no obligation or membership. When you need personal ministry, click here for more information >>>>
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Romans 8:26 ESV

The Apostle Peter often combined his teachings on Bible prophecy with common sense principles for daily living. Consider 1 Peter 2:12 KJV - “Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.”
When Last Days chaos strikes at the core of governments, Peter reminded Christians that our conduct must remain Godly, and that we should live lives that are upright. If our daily walk becomes inconsistent with the Bible, this will open the door to criticism from unbelievers and ultimately rejection of the Gospel.
Further, we must continue to do good works in the community, making a complete witness. Know this, Christians come under more scrutiny during the bad times because people want to know if our experience with God is real and sustainable.
Peter’s use of the word “visitation” is confusing. Theologians are unsure if he is referring to the final Judgment or if this has to do with some other occasion when the Lord “visits” His people for an inspection. Either way, we will all come under the scrutiny of God and must remain ready, faithful, and prayerful.
