      20060312 Joy Of Jesus - Serenity In Your Communication - Privately - Rev. Tommy Jones


What does your #InternalMonologue sound like?  Guaranteed, whatever you are saying to yourself in #private is spilling over into your words to others.  That doesn’t have to be a negative statement.  Here in Philippians, Paul tells his audience to ‘rejoice in the Lord always.’  If we were to do that continuously, what would be the effect on our conversations?  Of course you have to have a personal relationship with the Lord of the Universe to have a reason to praise Him perpetually.  How do you get that?  Go to our Gift link on the homepage of as i always say at the bottom of these messages.  Is this prosperity Gospel?  Did Paul write this from a place of opulence and comfort?

      20050710 Triumphant Suffering - Of An External Nature - Pointed Toward Proclamation - Rev. Tommy Jones


PSA – Don’t forget #Valentine’sDay is coming up to avoid unnecessary external suffering.  But seriously, why is there so much #suffering in this world?  If suffering is the result of a fallen world, why do Christians suffer?  How does Christian suffering help to spread the Gospel?  What’s wrong with the phrase, ‘under the circumstances’?  Did Paul’s jailing help or hinder the spread of the Gospel?  Where would we be without some of his jailhouse epistles?  How did he view his jailers, as oppressors or opportunities? Is courage contagious just like fear?  What did Paul say about preachers of his day that taught about Jesus plus something else?  Do we have people around us today like that?  How can we rejoice about suffering?

With the #IowaCaucus and the #kickoff of the #primary and #election season, here in the #USA, ask yourself what would a revival do to the outcome? Not just in this country, but what would it do around the world?  Who wants revival and what is it?  Who needs it?  Where does it come from?  Who is it for?  What does it produce?

With the changing season, I got out a pair of enclosed cold weather shoes which I started to put on when I noticed the rubberized sole was sticky!  As I looked more closely, the sole was cracked and crumbling even though the shoe looked impeccable.   That seems to me to be a picture of many people around the world today.  They look good, but what about the foundation upon which they walk?  Our stock market is up then down; precious metals and commodities tumble; banks close.  What can you trust?  The word of a politician?   I say, look to the LORD; read His WORD; PRAY; HOPE; REJOICE.   “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy has caused us to be born again to a living  hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance INCORRUPTIBLE (which cannot decay),  and undefiled, and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for YOU, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time...Rejoice, even though now for a season you have distress by various trials:  proof of your faith being more precious than gold which is perishable, though it be tried with fire, may be found to result in praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ; whom you have not seen, you love Him, and believe in Him…obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.” 1PETER1:3-9  Those shoes are gone, but my soul is saved…walk with me in His Grace!
