Faith & Thanks!

Thanksgiving Countdown Complete!

Happy Thanksgiving, family friends and ministry partners, near & worldwide!

Depending upon the traditions of your home, American families today will be involved in various degrees of …

Festive Feats of Frolicking In –

*Football

*Flag Waving

*Fun

*Frantic Friday Shopping

*Food & Feasting

*Family

But if you leave out the most critical and integral basis of Thanksgiving you’ve missed the whole point.

*FAITH!!🙏❤️🔥

FAITH in God …trust in His goodness, gratitude for His mercies and blessings… this is what today should truly be centered on.

Take some time, around the turkey-laden table, or before the meal or later this evening, to gather the family in prayer and worship to say “Thank you God, for your blessings. Thank You Father for the Lord Jesus, our Savior and Lord. Thank You for salvation and a home in Heaven, thank You for Your guidance and blessing and provision on this journey called life as we prepare for Eternity.”

This will make a true Thanksgiving in your home.

I am grateful for you, and I pray God‘s blessings on you and your family today.

Thank you all ❤️

Thanksgiving Countdown Continues…

Today I am so grateful for all those who have invested in me spiritually through my 55 years.

Far too many to name, but I will list a few.

My parents were the most influential,

my preaching, praying, passionate Pentecostal Pastor/ Evangelist Dad & Mom Rose Marie Holmes (Mom is still pastoring) ❤️ followed by my grandparents.

But I also must remember Sunday school teachers, youth workers, evangelists and Campmeeting speakers who powerfully impacted my spiritual development.

I’m especially grateful for missionaries, their passionate appeal for the souls of the world, shaped my heart, still beating for global evangelism.

Anyone remember the Philippino Singers, with a Missionary Shields? ( if I recall his name correctly) Their song still moves me…

🎵”To the east, to the west, to north & the south, you must go, I must go, with the gospel of Christ.” 🎵

Bible College professors, (then & now) and Presidents, Dr. Leonard Heroo, and now, Dr David Arnett of Northpoint Bible College Graduate School continue to shape me for anointed, supernatural last-days ministry. Dr Arnett is a spiritual treasure in my life!

District Superintendents ( my pastors) have invested in me, and believed in me and trusted me with ministry.

In 2 Districts in Canada, and now in Illinois. ( Interestingly, I remember that in my youth, some of the most dynamic Campmeeting & Conference speakers I heard were from Illinois such as Richard Dortch, who became a lifelong friend, encourager and mentor.

I’m grateful for Larry Griswold and Gary J. Blanchard who met this Canadian television preacher in a Drury Inn in Marion, IL 10 years ago and welcomed me into the Illinois District Council of the Assemblies of God

Our current District Pastor Phil Schneider

is a trusted friend & confidant, a man of strong convictions & deep commitment to the foundations we have in the Word of God. His leadership continues to sharpen my calling.

My wife Valerie Holmes, co-Lead Pastor with me, is my closest spiritual encouragement… your commitment to the calling of God in our lives, your sacrifice, prayer life, love for the Word of God inspire so many, but no one more than me … I live with you and see your passion for God‘s glory and it continues to motivate me. It is a joy to minister alongside of you wherever we are & right here at REVIVE.

I’m a blessed man and so grateful at Thanksgiving & every day of the year!

To God be all the Glory, and thanks to all my friends… we stand on the shoulders of giants. 💕🙏🔥

Thank you, Lord!

Thanksgiving Countdown Continues…

I am so grateful for my family and spiritual legacy.

My great-grandmother who loved the Lord Jesus with all of her heart, & her favorite song was “Jesus keep me near the Cross”. Nana is part of my earliest memories & foundation.

My great- uncle, Howard Hatt, what a powerful life, still impacting the Kingdom!

My dad‘s parents, who I never met but were fiery Pentecostal ministers of the gospel, who laid such a grounding for my life.

My mother’s parents, also anointed preachers, what a blessing in my early life and through my teens.

My parents, my dad is in Heaven, but no home was ever blessed with a more consistent Christian witness, a husband & wife crazy in love with each other and didn’t mind letting the kids know it.

Your powerful ministry in the church, was the same at home. Consistency was the ‘secret sauce’.

Mom, Rose Marie Holmes you continue to bless and inspire. ❤️

My older sister Margie Demont what an inspiration and a blessing you continue to be. Your gentle sweetness is warmth, not just in my memories but still today.

My younger brothers Jody Holmes and Dave Holmes, what a blast growing up with you, never getting into serious trouble … I tended to be the careful one and you guys often were the adventurous! 😂 (Other than that one time I crawled on top of the station wagon while we were driving. Thank God for His mercy and dad’s cool and careful response.)

And my baby sister Charis Elizabeth you continue to be a blessing and inspiration.

God has restored your JOY, we could not be happier for you! 😘

I am so glad that you all love the Lord and are serving Him with your whole heart.

Thankful for my family, and yes I do know that to whom much is given, much is required.

God help me to live out this blessing that you have showered on me, making me who I am.

Love you all, miss you, hope to see you soon.

(Road trip to St. Louis, just a subtle hint)❤️

Motivational Moment

Monday Motivational Moment

Happy Thanksgiving 🍁🦃 ❤️ Week!

(Reminder, no Wednesday REVIVE services 11 AM or 7 PM this week. Help is needed this Wednesday morning at 8:45 AM …bring your truck to help with grocery pick up)

This Sunday we are receiving a Supernatural Thanksgiving Blessing Offering at REVIVE. Prepare a generous gift, to give in adoration, worship & gratitude for God’s goodness & blessings!

There was a man who said “I grumbled because I had to get up every morning, until one morning I could not get up!” Consider the horrible possibility that you could only enjoy today what you thanked God for yesterday. What would your life look like?

Let’s be aware of the greatest Thanksgiving Proclamation in history, found in God’s Word.

“Thanks be unto God for His indescribable gift.” 2 Cor. 9:15

*Christ’s love cannot be described.

*His sacrifice can’t be comprehended.

*His forgiveness can’t be understood.

*His plans for you & desire to bless you cannot be measured.

Give thanks!
