He Must Increase, but I Must Decrease

Dear family of our Lord Jesus Christ,

How are you this day? May God Bless you and yours forever and ever! Amen!

John 3:30: He must increase, but I must decrease.
Yesterday was such a blessed day in the Lord at Victory Church of God in Grants, NM where Pastor Mark Tross in the Pastor. Mark’s lovely angel Juliet led the music! Sharon and I were so blessed to be there and share the Word’s that God gave us! I preached the service and Sharon taught the women after potluck.
Here are the some of the points of the message God gave me yesterday for you to “chew over”
Some of you will say like my kid’s,” Dad, you say these things over and over!” And I say AMEN! We need to get the basics before we can take the next step for Jesus. Our society is struggling because we don’t do the basics! 
Clear you mind of any negative thoughts.  Are the thoughts you are having of God or of satan?
You have all you need to go forth in our Lord……you have all you need!
Fill your mind with God.
Be in order with God’s order. We cannot be out of order.
1. God
2. Wife or husband
3. Family
4. Work for God
Some of you may say I don’t work for God I am Car salesman. My point here is that whatever you do, it must be a calling from God. You must be doing the work assigned you by our Lord Jesus.
If you are not doing the work assigned you by Jesus you are out of order.
You know what you are to be doing through a close personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
You have a personal relationship with Jesus where you can hear Him!
God talks to us!
Wake up early at 4am and read the Word for an hour, pray, listen. This will for a stronger foundation for you.Get up at this time before some human being ruins your day. LOL LOL
You must spend at least an hour with the Father each day.
Stay in God’s order, not your’s or anyone else’s.
Have a Church that you attend and a Pastor that you trust with everything.
Have an accountability group around you! 
Have mentor’s.
Be a fruit tree.
Let it be said when you die that you beared much fruit for God.
Be Salt and Light.
Share your testimony with the World!
Be a Barnabas to people!
We should be encouraging people at all times!
Be consistent in the ways of God. 
An unbelieving world loves inconsistent Christians! 
Do not show an unbelieving world what it likes to see from Christians.

Sharon and I have openings to Speak, Preach and Teach at your Church or group meetings, just contact us.
There are pictures throughout this CUP of yesterday, please enjoy, For God’s Glory Alone!

We are blessed to have Darlene Quiring with us today to share. Darlene uses Facebook for God’s Glory Alone, she is always posting encouraging words to us all……….
The most popular “Social Networking” site is called Facebook.

Facebook has been so popular that there are more people who use Facebook than live in the USA. In fact, if the users of Facebook made up their own country they’d be the 3rd largest nation on earth – with a population of over 400 million.
65 million of those people access their Facebook account regularly thru their cell phones or mobile devices. And experts say that the average user has about 130 Facebook friends and they spend more than 55 minutes a day on their site talking with friends, posting pictures and reading about other people they’ve met online.

Essentially Facebook is a place where people tell other people WHO THEY ARE!
Well, actually it’s a place where people tell other who they THINK they are…
Well, actually, it’s a place where people tell others how they wish others thought they were.

Now on my Facebook, I am careful to show pictures that show me in what I think are flattering poses. Pictures that show me as being…
· Forceful
· Debonair
· Affectionate
· Mysterious
· Religious
· A World Traveler (these were all humorous poses

I’ve been on Facebook for about 3 or 4 years now, and I’ve noticed something about the site that’s really intriguing:
It seems that when people get on Facebook they always reveal WHO they are.
It’s like they believe they’re somehow anonymous because no one is looking them in the eye. And thus, they don’t think anybody is really paying attention.

Now, some people are very nice folks in private… and so they’re nice on Facebook. But others – if they’re mean spirited, lewd, crude and generally despicable in private that’s how they behave on Facebook. And some of these people will post pictures on their Facebook they wouldn’t ordinarily want anybody to see, but they’ll put them online because they think they’re being funny.

There’s just something about Facebook that reveals people – as they really are.

ILLUS: I remember one woman who “friended” me (in other words she asked to be able to read my posts and put her posts on my page).
Now that was nice… it was a compliment to me. And of course I said “Yes.”

But then, after a few weeks I noticed a disturbing pattern in her postings. What she wrote on HER Facebook (and thus shared with me) often had foul words,

and she would talk about things a Christian shouldn’t be talking about.
So, I sent her a private message explaining that this wasn’t appropriate.
She was remorseful and said it wouldn’t happen again.
But it did.
So I sent her another message… and she “unfriended” me.
And that was ok.

You see, what she began to realize was – the things she thought were private were not private. She came to the conclusion that if she wanted to do what she wanted to do she had to make sure I didn’t know what she was doing.
So she unfriended me.
She cut me off from her Facebook page.
Because (in her mind) if I didn’t KNOW what she was doing… she could keep on doing it.

Now, she can hide that from me… but she can’t hide those things from God
In Jeremiah God tells us “My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes.” Jeremiah 16:17
Hebrews 4:13 “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”

That woman may have thought she’d gotten away from with something by “unfriending” me, but she can’t hide anything from God. He sees it all. And here in Luke 6 Jesus is essentially telling us that God has a Facebook page for each of us. On that Facebook page God sees exactly who you and I are. Every word we speak is recorded. Every action we do is shown
Because God sees us as we really are.

Now just to put your mind at ease – none of us come off looking all that good on the Facebook page God has for us. As Romans says – “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.”

But here in Luke 6 Jesus is telling His disciples that, while that may be true, they shouldn’t get real comfortable with that idea. While all of us do mess up in our lives on occasion, God is looking to see what kind of fruit we’re bearing in our lives.

He says: “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.” Luke 6:43
Then Jesus points out what kind of fruit God looks at:

· God looks at what we SAY
“The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth SPEAKS.” Luke 6:45
· AND God looks at what we DO
“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not DO what I say? Luke 6:46

What Jesus is saying is this: what you say and what you do are reflections of what is inside of you. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart.

How you and I TALK… and how you and I WALK are reflections of what we’ve stored in our hearts. In computer language they have a scientific description of that process.
It’s called “Garbage in, garbage out.”
If you put bad things in a computer… you’ll get bad things out.
And conversely, if you put good things in… you’ll get good things out

So, as Christians, what’s INSIDE of us?
Well, it’s should be the Spirit of God.

Thank you for sharing Darlene! You are a HUGE blessing. Darlene lives in Mt. Lake, Minn, which is just 14 miles from my hometown, Windom.

March 8, 2013. Wheat harvest season is coming soon. The anticipation of a rewarding crop is very high with wheat farmers. Easter comes early this year and the other important holy days follow with a crescendo of Pentecost on May 15. Pentecost was like a grand harvest festival of thanksgiving. On that first Pentecost after the resurrection of Jesus, the Holy Spirit came and rested upon all those on the roof top in their prayer meeting. Some believe that on that very day the church was born as a first fruits expression from heaven. They came to be known as Christians. Pray about giving this year with a cheerful heart a first fruits offering from your own harvest. God loves a cheerful giver. He loves you!
2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (MSG) “Remember: A stingy planter gets a stingy crop; a lavish planter gets a lavish crop. I want each of you to take plenty of time to think it over, and make up your own mind what you will give. That will protect you against sob stories and arm-twisting. God loves it when the giver delights in the giving. God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done.” Ras Robinson
March 9, 2013. There is an undercurrent of dislike, mistrust and rejection. Most of the time it lays low, but nevertheless it is there. This undercurrent has taken others in and therefore has caused a web that is not seen but always lurking.  It rears its head from time to time, to make innuendos and then goes back underground. Most of the time you know it is coming, but there seems nothing you can do about it. This grieves you without end. There is something you can do about it, precious one. The weapons of your warfare are mighty before Me. Get the one you know who feels the same, pray together, then watch.
2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (AMP) “For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds,” Bev Robinson

My Friends and Family,

For years I use to wear a cross necklace on a daily basis...  For a 
number of years I lost my way in following our Lord and this didn't 
necessarily become unimportant, but when I lost the necklace I had it 
was not an important issue to me to replace it...  Over the course of 
the last 5/6 months several wonderful things happened in my life; 1st - 
God brought Pastor Dewey Moede to me; 2nd - God had Pastor Dewey 
introduce me to Pastors Marty & Paulette Cooper at 'Christ Full 
Deliverance Ministries' in Rio Rancho where me and my wonderful wife 
Sandy now regularly attend service...   THE LORD HAS ALWAYS BEEN WITH US 
HEARTS !!!...   I can't tell you how wonderful it feels !!!!!!

Keeping in mind that I lost my job a couple months ago and I have been 
unable to find new employment with my age & disability hindering me...   
Funds are running extremely low and we'll be on hamburger helper without 
the hamburger relatively soon if I don't find something, but a couple 
weeks ago I called my wonderful wife who was out grocery shopping and 
asked if there was any way we could afford for me to go shopping and try 
to find an inexpensive one to replace my lost necklace...   She knew how 
important this had become to me again and said "Go get one and don't 
worry about how much it is, I know had bad you want one."...   Won't 
mention stores involved but I went to the mall and proceeded to try to 
find one...   I had found a rather inexpensive one but the chain was 
just way too small...   Suddenly, Sandy called me back and said she was 
going to the mall to get something and asked where I was...   When I 
told here I was already at the mall she said she would be there in a 
couple minutes...   When she arrived I showed her the one I had picked 
out and she took me to the jewelry counter where the attendant showed us 
another chain of good length but the most inexpensive one they had was 
well over twice the amount of the cross itself...  The combination of 
the two would have come to a total of $99 which was very had for me to 
chew on with our current situation and while I'm trying to cut back on 
anything I can to provide what is left for my wife & family...   Anyway, 
I didn't really care too much for the ones we picked out but decided to 
get them...   My wife said to get them anyway but she needed to go pick 
out what she was looking for first...   We left the items with the 
attendant and told her we would be right back with the other item 
also...   Sandy was unable to find the item she wanted at that store so 
we went back to get the chain & cross and then go to another store...   
When we arrived back at the counter the attendant was now busy with 
another customer...   We waited and waited and waited and waited...   
Eventually, we decided to go to another store to try to find the item 
she was looking for...   She found the item she wanted which she said 
was perfect and exactly what she was looking for... We turned around to 
go pay for it and right there in front of me was the jewelry section and 
the counter directly in front of me had the most beautiful cross 
necklace I think I'd ever seen...   I looked at the price and told her 
it was just way way too much...   She said "Nonsense - get it"...   We 
asked the attendant if we could see it and while she pulled it out she 
said - "Nice pick, it's on sale for 75% off !!!

We got the cross necklace which I absolutely love and her new handbag 
which she absolutely loves for exactly the same amount as I would have 
paid for the cross & necklace I didn't like that much at the other store 

Four part quiz for the day:

     1 - Did I actually loose the original necklace; (or was it 
misplaced for a reason) ?...

     2 - Who brought Sandy to the mall at that exact same time I was 
experiencing this problem ?...

     3 - Who kept the attendant at the first store so busy we finally 
left ?...

     4 - Who took us to the other store where we found exactly what we 
both wanted which were both of better quality and much more inexpensive 
since they were both on sale ?...

If you can't answer all four of these questions with a single word - 
CALL PASTOR DEWEY - he'll be happy to help you find the answer !!!!!...

Rick Stambaugh

Thank you for the word's Rick! We are praying for you and Sandy! Please keep Rick in your prayers, he is undergoing a medical
