Seeing wasps, butterflies at year’s end?
I hope each of you had a blessed Thanksgiving with your love ones. The weather was great. My Dad and the family were invited to my oldest brother and his wife for Thanksgiving in Smyrna. Tommie and I went to Newnan for Thanksgiving. Mother Rebecca and Deacon Richard Hubbard Sr. went to her sister’s in Covington. I am sure there are many more who visited relatives but no names were given to me.
What do you think of the weather, seeing wasps in November and December? I saw butterflies in November. I am a true believer of God’s words. Read your Bible and you’ll see what it says about the seasons of years before the end of time. So stop hating each other and get your house in order before the coming of the Lord.
Saturday was like a spring day with birds singing and Sunday was nice and a little overcast. I thank God for all the weather for He is in control of everything and not man.
We had a great time Sunday with four being baptized. Pastor T. came forth with his sermon coming from 1 Cornithain 10: 12-14, subject, “Satan is limited to the restrictions of God.” Now if you think you are standing strong, be careful for you may no be as strong as you think you are. The Corinthians believer lived in a culture filled with immorality that was accepted as normal. Remember that temptation that comes into one’s life is no difference from that what others experience. God is faithful Paul said there is no uncertain terms everyone is tempted. We possess in Christ the power to resist sins. When we yield to these things our decisions and behaviors to the spirits control we can resist temptation. God will show you a way out of it so you will not give in to it. You need to flee from the worship of idols. Praise God!
Keep a watchful eye for Satan if you see him coming run from him because he is dangerous.
Pastor T. that was a powerful sermon. Thank you for a fresh word from God.
