The little girl turned and hid from view…

Sad story… 😦

(Read if you promise to spend a moment in prayer for a lonely girl)

I just came from a quick trip to a drugstore. Behind me in line came a woman and a little girl, maybe 7 years old. This woman was not destitute, judging by her overflowing cart of goodies and merchandise. I overheard the little girl ask, “Mommy, can you please buy me a chocolate bar? I promise to share it with _____ when we get home.” The mother said very coldly, “No.” The girl again very sweetly said, “Please Mommy, I promise I will share it when we get home. “ The mother, just above a whisper, almost hissing said very cruelly, “ No, I said no, and I have told you 100 times, always assume the answer is NO”. I heard a little whimper and out of my peripheral vision saw the girl move away and hide behind a counter.

“Always assume the answer is no.” And we wonder why children grow up bitter and angry? We wonder why children grow up with a distorted view of GOD? We wonder why little girls run to the first guy who makes them feel loved and wanted and desired and valued even though it’s often sexual and very distorted?

Please pray for this little girl and all the little boys who have no love in their home and can’t imagine a GOD who would want to bless them and love them and be their best friend.

That’s why we’re here my friend, to be light and hope to a hurting world. That’s why we have Kids Ministry and Sunday School and VBS, and Kids Camp in the City and Youth Ministry. That’s why we run the van and the buses, why we feed the hungry and spend so much money at Thanksgiving and CHRISTmas reaching out to our community. Somebody must tell the world that when they come to GOD for blessing and hope and help they can always assume the answer is YES! ❤

Moral courage to name the evil!

Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper has the moral courage to NAME the evil! In his speech to the nation he said… “This was an ISIL [Islamic State of Iraq and Levant] inspired terrorist…. Let there be no misunderstanding: we will not be intimidated. Canada will never be intimidated.” How I pray for an American leader with this kind of sanity. We seem to be so intimidated that we repeatedly have to call these kind of attacks “workplace violence”, violent extremism or the acts of a deranged “lone-wolf”. This is probably mostly due to the fact that Stephen Harper is a born-again, Bible-believing, church-going, GOD-fearing Christian!

Flighty, disgraceful preachers!

A necessary word for apologetic, politically correct, cowardly preachers…
“If I profess, with the loudest voice and the clearest exposition, every portion of the truth of GOD except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christianity. Where the battle rages the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battle-field besides is mere flight and disgrace to him if he flinches at that one point.” (attributed to Martin Luther in a novel by E C Rundel)

From Slippery Slope to Avalanche!

“In regard to backsliding churches, we used to warn of THE SLIPPERY SLOPE SYNDROME! We spoke of weakening moral stands from spiritual leaders, pastors becoming afraid to offend the world around them and desiring to appear as relevant and not out-of-touch. Sadly, we have progressed much further and faster than even I anticipated. It is no longer a slippery slope but an AVALANCHE OF EVEREST PROPORTION!

You simply MUST leave these weak, accommodating pathetic, social clubs masquerading as churches. Get out now and don’t stay long enough to say ‘good bye’, and don’t you dare leave a ‘GOD bless you’ behind, lest you speak favor over what GOD has cursed.
Here is all the info you need!
Does your pastor have the courage the speak the Truth of GOD’s Word re. homo-sex, adultery, pedophilia, pornography, fornication, abortion whether they are speaking in the pulpit, in private or to the media? Does he dare to call sin, sin?
If not… RUN! There are thousands of GODly churches in this nation with prophetic voices in the pulpit.
Believe me, it will be worth the drive!”

Social Media … a Pastor’s Best Friend!



Do you want to determine if someone has leadership potential in your ministry, is a sincere follower of Christ, and exhibits a solid and consistent witness? 
Do you need to ascertain if they have become obsessed with idols or if they are worldly with little consciousness of the sanctifying Presence of the Holy Spirit?
Are you curious as to whether they ever share their faith with family and friends?

Or how about considering an evangelist or speaker to trust with the pulpit in your church? Are they crude, immature and juvenile, or classy and anointed? Do they have a credible testimony of walking above the fray of fleshly distractions?
Do they represent the King and His Kingdom with Ambassadorial dignity?

All this is very easy now… just spend 45 to 90 seconds scrolling on their walls and your investigation is complete. Out of the abundance of the heart Social Media speaketh!

Hitlerian Houston? Wake up America!

1930’s Nazi Germany is arriving in America!
I never thought I would see this day come but it has!
Lesbian Mayor of Houston, TX, got the courts to demand local pastors to submit copies of sermons for gov’t scrutiny in comments relating to homo-sex. If you can’t see that this is Hitlerian, you do not have one clue about history or freedom!
As for our church REVIVE, and our ministry, we are boldly and unashamedly Biblical and proudly politically INcorrect!
For the most part, the German church allowed Nazism to flourish.
There were heroes, like Niemoller and Bonhoeffer, but not enough.
Time will tell if the American church will fight back or cower in fear of being labeled out-dated or old-fashioned or out of touch.
We have decided to fight the oppressors!
Who is with us?
Lead Pastors Myles & Valerie Holmes
