Dear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
 
“A man of too many friends comes to ruin, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother” Proverbs 18:24
 
 
I am sorry that there was not a CUP yesterday. It has been a very busy time here at FGGAM. Our son Michael came for a visit from Denver with his girlfriend  Tina, who we had not met, we had a great visit and I attended Justin Johnson’s wedding Friday evening. Justin used to work for me at KKIM. Saturday night we spoke  at the service at Christ Full Deliverance Ministries, Pastor’s Marty and Paulette Copper’s Church, which was held to honor Elder Mable Lopez and the featured speaker was Apostle Barbara Gould. Sunday we traveled to Reserve, New Mexico to give the sermon at the Baptist Church there. In all this was also the manning of the FGGAM.ORG web site, where we are now receiving on the average 1,000 or more visits a day. It has become a full time work in itself. Rick Stambaugh has volunteered to become one of our news writers at FGGAM.ORG, we are so thankful for the help. We have a great group of volunteers who post inspirational pieces, but we are in need of more news writers. If you are interested would you drop me a line at pastordewey@fggam.org ? please. The challenge is that when I have a Church to visit like on Sunday in Reserve I need to be up at 3am to post and then like Sunday I did not get home until 7:30 that night. FGGAM has become a TV/RADIO/NEWSPAPER/MAGAZINE source for many, so it needs constant updating, like in the old days when radio stations actually had news departments! I do not know of any Christian radio or tv station at this time with a full time news dept, and that is the void the Lord has us filling. So many secular radio stations no longer have full time news departments. I am so sad at this, and I know this is one of the reasons the Lord has us here at FGGAM.ORG There is a DEEP need for news from a Christian perspective. In talking to FGGAM Board Member Wanell Pate this morning she wanted me to pass along this: “Would you please pray for us here at FGGAM that we will get more help. There is a need to stand in the gap for God on Biblical principles and we need more help. We pray that some day we could pay someone to join the news department, but that is not possible right now, but please pray for increase funding.” Thank you for those words Wanell, I am so thankful for Wanell’s leadership at FGGAM. On top of this the need for help and counseling has reached the point where we cannot help everybody that is contacting us. Barbara Gould another FGGAM Board member has been helping with this load. There are many hurting people in the United States, many single Mom’s who are barely hanging on. I know, I hear from them everyday. We get call’s from all over the United States of America. We try and connect them with a Church and Pastor, but that does not always work out. So these are the words that God gave me to share with you today, to pray for the hurting people of this world, pray for the Philippines, for FGGAM and pray for increased funding to hire some help. As my partner here at FGGAM Paul Holt says, “FGGAM has become a multi-media site for Christians.” WOW I did not know all that was inside me, and that the Lord would have me write all that! We soon will be at 100,000 visitors to www.fggam.org since Feb 1. Way sooner than I ever thought, I am in AWE of GOD in what HE is doing through FGGAM. For God’s Glory Alone!
 
I want to share with you that on Dec. 3rd at 7pm at Christ Full Deliverance Ministries in Rio Rancho we will be holding a conference like we did a month ago in Santa Fe. “The World We Live In” a look at the news through a Biblical lens. Please plan to attend.
 
We also are planning the same Conference in Socorro. We are working with the Socorro radio station to nail down a date.
Please listen to yesterdays radio program on KDAZ AM730: The Word We Live In, click here: https://fggam.org/media/pastor-dewey-moede-media/

Now I want to share with you what I preached on Sunday at the Baptist Church in Reserve, NM. I will be returning to preach there again this Sunday. This is the sermon outline. After watching the Billy Graham special it made me and Pastor Paul realize more than ever, we need to preach the blood of Jesus, the Cross. By the way I have had many people tell me they have not yet seen Billy’s special. Well by golly we have it posted at FGGAM! You have got to watch it and pass the link around, for God’s Glory Alone. By the way, I have ran into people that have never heard of Billy Graham, so I have had fun introducing Billy to many this past few days!

1 Corinthians 1:17-18
THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS
Intro: We are living in a day when the message of the church is changing. Churches, and even whole denominations, are moving away from the old message of salvation through the blood of Jesus, and are moving toward a message of salvation through social activism and good works. The old bloody message of the cross is quickly being replaced by a bloodless message that lacks power and that lacks hope. Instead of hearing the devastating, but life changing news that men are sinners, people hear a message that tells them, “I’m OK and you’re OK!
     Well, I would like to take the same stand that the Apostle Paul took all those years ago. When he wrote to the church in Corinth, Paul reminded them that he had been called for one purpose and that purpose was to preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. That message was to be his focus and that message was to be his ministry.
     Today, I would like to restate the old, old message. I would like to remind everyone in this building about what happened that day when the Lord Jesus died on the cross at Calvary. Because, it was that event, which took place at Calvary 2,000 years ago that altered the future for every person who places their faith in the One Who died there that day.
     Please join me as we revisit the old, old story one more time. I would like to take you back to a little hill just outside the gates of the city of Jerusalem, where we will encounter an event that purchased and provided salvation for every person who receives that event as their very own. Let’s return together to the cross of Calvary, and try to grasp The Message Of The Cross! As we do, please let the Lord speak to your heart and if you have never been saved, I invite you to come to Jesus today for salvation through His precious blood.


  I. THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS
A. A Strange Message – (That there should be life out of death. Ill. The Jews were looking for a Messiah Who would throw off the Roman yoke and give them liberty from their captors. They totally missed the fact that their Messiah would be One Who would suffer for the sins of the people, Isa. 53:1-3.) (Note: The message of the bloody cross of Jesus is still a strange message to those who have never experienced its life changing power. To them it is “foolishness“. This word comes from the same word from which we get our word “Moron“. To the lost the idea of trusting a suffering, bleeding man for salvation is moronic! Ill. 1 Cor. 1:21-24!)
B. A Shocking Message – (A brutal, awful death was experienced there on that cross.)The death Christ died on the cross was one of absolute torture. You and I cannot even begin to imagine all the pain that Jesus was forced to endure for our sakes. Allow me to refresh your mind this morning about the terrible price Jesus paid for you as He suffered for sin that day.
           1. Scourged – Matt. 27:26
           2. Beaten – Luke 22:63-64
           3. Spit upon – Matt. 27:30
           4. Beard Plucked from His Face -Isa. 50:6
           5. Mocked – Matt. 27:26-29
           6. Stripped Naked – Matt. 27:35
7. Nailed to the Cross – Matt. 27:38; John 20:25 (Ill. The ancient Assyrians were the first to “crucify” their victims. However, they did not nail them to cross, they merely impaled them on sharpened stakes and left them to die a horrible death that often took several days. When the Romans came along, they streamlined the method and added the little touch of actually nailing their victims to the cross. This method of death usually took several days as well.)
8. These truths don’t even begin to scratch the surface of Jesus suffered for you and me, Isa. 52:14. His was a bitter cup, but one that He drank of willingly so that we might be saved, Luke 22:41-42.
(Note: To hear the details of Christ’s death on the cross is disturbing! But, it is a necessary truth that mist be proclaimed and must be heard before there can be salvation. Friend, there is only one way for you to get to God and that is by the way of the cross. There is no salvation apart from faith in the work of Jesus on Calvary!)
C. A Simple Message – (Ill. Not clouded by demands and details, but delivered in simplicity and clarity.) One of the problems with the modern church is that we have tried to attach too many conditions to salvation. However, the Bible is clear when it tells us that the way to be saved is for the sinner to accept by faith what the Bible teaches about Jesus and His atoning death on the cross, Rom. 10:9-10. This is what the preaching of the cross is all about! It is not about you quitting your sins! It is about you coming to Jesus by faith! It’s not about turning over a new leaf, it’s about placing your faith in Jesus and Him alone for salvation!

 II. THE PURPOSE OF THE CROSS
A. About Making A Statement – Since way back in the Old Testament, the Lord has been telling me of His love for them, Deut. 7:7-8; Jer. 31:3. However, in Christ’s death on the cross, God was able to declare boldly, for all to see, His boundless, matchless love for the lost of this world.(Rom. 5:6-8) The cross is God’s statement of love to the world -John 15:13!
B. About Providing Salvation – The Bible, tells us that there is no other way to cleanse sin, but through the sacrifice of an innocent one in the of the guilty one, Heb. 9:22. This is seen all the way back in the beginning when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, Gen. 3:21. This same line of thought continues all the way through the days of the Tabernacle and the Temple. There, sin was atoned for by the blood of sheep, bulls and goats, but it was never taken away, Heb. 10:4; Heb. 10:10-11. However, the Lord Jesus went to the cross and died for the sins of humanity. When He did, His death on the cross forever settled the sin debt of man, Heb. 10:12-14; Heb. 9:24-28! It is clear yet? If not, then listen to these two precious passages of Scripture, Rev. 1:5; 1 Pet. 1:18-19. (Note: By the way, the word “saved” in this verse means, “to keep safe and sound, to rescue from all harm and danger; from destruction and from perishing!” Sounds to me like when a person comes to Jesus by faith and gets saved, it’s a done deal! That person does not need to fear losing his salvation, John 10:28!)
C. About Defeating Satan – Ever since the Lucifer sinned and became the devil, he has been in the business of trying to hinder the work of God. He loves nothing better than keeping souls in bondage and seeing them condemned to Hell,Eph. 2:1-3. But, when Jesus went to the cross, I am of the opinion that the devil thought he had won the victory that day. I am sure he rejoiced when Jesus cried out, “It is finished!” But, what the devil did not know that day was that the Lord Jesus wasn’t planning to stay dead! Maybe the devil should have listened closer and he would have understood that Jesus did not say, “I am finished!” He said “It is finished!” You see, when Jesus died on the cross, He did not die to stay dead, but He rose from the dead three days later and nailed old slew foot’s coffin lid shut! The Bible tells us that the victory over the devil is found in the blood of the Lamb, Rev. 12:11. (Note: Satan is defeated! He may roar like a ferocious lion and he may try to keep you from God, 1 Pet. 5:8, but he has been defeated by the power of God and you do not have to remain his prisoner this morning! There is power in the blood of Jesus to set you free!)


III. THE POWER OF THE CROSS
(Ill. When the power of the cross is appropriated, three great and wonderful things take place. Notice what they are:)
A. Sin Dies – When a person places his/her faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, that person is forever changed! The chains of sin are broken, Rom. 6:14, and they are made into a new creature, 2 Cor. 5:17. Now, the new born believer does not have to live his life in bondage to sin, Rom. 6:6! (Ill. The blood has the power the change every life touched by it! There really is wonder working power in the blood of the Lamb!)
B. Hell Is Defeated – No blood washed, blood bought individual will ever experience the flames and fires of Hell! One of the most precious verses in the Bible pertaining to this subject is found in John 5:24. There, the Bible tells us that we will never come into condemnation! Romans 8:1 confirms this for us! Thank God, no child of God will ever have to go to Hell, Satan will not get his wish! That ought to cause us to rejoice this morning!
C. Heaven Is Delivered – The blood is the key that unlocks the gates of glory! When the blood is applied, the child of God becomes instantly destined for an eternity in Heaven with the Lord! That is His promise to every believer, John 14:1-3. And, there is only one way to get to that glorious place, John 3:3; 7.
Conc: When evangelist John Wesley was returning home from a service one night, he was robbed. The thief, however, found his victim to have only a little money and some Christian literature. As the bandit was leaving, Wesley called out, “Stop! I have something more to give you.” The surprised robber paused. “My friend,” said Wesley, “you may live to regret this sort of life. If you ever do, here’s something to remember: ‘The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin!'” The thief hurried away, and Wesley prayed that his words might bear fruit. Years later, Wesley was greeting people after a Sunday service when he was approached by a stranger. What a surprise to learn that this visitor, now a believer in Christ as a successful businessman, was the one who had robbed him years before! “I owe it all to you,” said the transformed man. “Oh no, my friend,” Wesley exclaimed, “not to me, but to the precious blood of Christ that cleanses us from all sin!”
     Has the blood been applied to your life? Is your name written down in Heaven? Is your faith in Jesus and in Him alone?
     If you need to come to Jesus for salvation this morning, this altar is open! If you need to come and get you walk with God straightened out, this altar is open. You come while the Lord is dealing with your heart today!
I leave you with this story………….
When You Feel Like the Caboose
Sharon Jaynes
Today’s Truth
“…when I am weak, then I am strong,” (2 Corinthians 12:10 NIV).
Friend to Friend
My hands were clammy. Beads of sweat formed on my brow. A familiar knot in the pit of my stomach threatened to push me toward the restroom, and my dry tongue began cleave to the roof of my mouth. It was 10:25 a.m. In just five more minutes the dreaded event would begin.
When I was in the first grade, the one academic exercise I feared more than any other was the spelling train. It was sheer torture—at least for me.
“Okay, students,” Mrs. March would say. “Everyone pick up your chairs and move them over to the chalk board. It’s time for the spelling train.”
Twenty first graders slipped their munchkin-sized chairs from their desks to form a semi-circle around our chief engineer. I always put mine at the end.
“Now remember the rules,” she explained. “I am going to hold up a flash card. If you read the word correctly, you get to go to the front of the train. If you miss it, you have to go to the caboose.”
She held up the cards one by one, and the class chugged along at a quick pace. Dog. Sally. Bob. Spot. Red. Blue. Mother. Stop. Run. Then it was my turn.
“Sharon, what is this word?”
Pause. Giggles.
Well, more often than not I had no idea. And when that happened, I would either guess wrong or sit in silence. I spent most of my time in the first grade spelling train in the caboose.
As the year progressed, I did move up into the passenger cars a few times, but usually I didn’t stay there long enough to keep the seat warm. There was one particular word that kept me from ever visiting the engine: T-h-e. So Mrs. March decided she was going to help me. For two weeks, she made me wear a name tag that read “THE” plastered on my chest like the scarlet letter. I can still remember kids coming up to me on the playground, pointing at THE on my chest, and saying, “Hey, what’s that? Why are you wearing that? Is your name The? Are you stupid?”
Eventually I did learn how to spell the word t-h-e, but that’s not all I learned. I learned that I was stupid; not as smart as everybody else; and just not good enough. But you know what? That wasn’t true. Those were lies from the enemy. And it took many years for God to hold me by the hand and help me see myself as He sees me: a uniquely created, dearly loved, completely forgiven, and totally accepted child of God who is capable of doing everything He has called me to do by the power of the Holy Spirit.
That was more than forty years ago, and now I have found joy in stringing written words together. I’ve noticed that life has many unusual twists and turns when God is at the helm. He takes our greatest weaknesses and turns them into our grandest strengths. That’s what happens when we turn our lives over to Him—we get out of the caboose and get to ride up with the chief engineer to places we never imagined possible. When we are weak, then He is strong.
Where are you in the train of life right now? If you’re hiding in the back, listen closely and you just might hear God calling you up front where you belong.
Let’s Pray
Dear Heavenly Father, it’s amazing to think of all You have done in my life. You have taken my greatest weaknesses and turned them into my greatest strengths. When I am weak, through the power of the Holy Spirit I am strong. Thank You for working in me and through me. And help me never to believe the lies of the enemy that say I’m not enough again. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
 
Thanks to Sonja for sending this in! I felt like the caboose to much of my life. I thank the Lord and Sharon and the kid’s and my mentor’s over the years for lifting me up! This is something only God can do, not man, BUT we can help, we can be a tool for God, that is what we do here at FGGAM! For God’s Glory Alone!
