Let me do some catching up here since I was not with you on Friday!!!
Very tragic news from Pastor Richard Mansfield of Albuquerque yesterday……..the death of a young friend……..Let us pray for the family…
LeAnn Krantz would have been 27 years old on December 30th but died and went to heaven at 1am this morning due to a stomach aneurysm.
She was a brilliant young lady that loved life as well as everyone she met. She won everyone over with her infectious smile and personality. She was an amazing daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, friend, sister in the Lord, my children’s dear friend and Cindy and my Goddaughter. Thank you for your prayers for the Krantz Family as well as all of us that had the privilege of sharing her life. – Pastor Richard
2 Thessalonians 3:16 “Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation. The Lord be with you all.”
We are praying Pastor Richard! Please add the family and friends to your prayer list.
Please pray for Michael in Midland Texas, His Mom Lucy asks for prayer for him, he was arrested today on a probation violation, we pray for God’s Justice to be done. Michael is a good man of God. Please be in prayer for him and the family.
Asking for prayer and clear message concerning Flagstaff and a management
position there. I’m thinking the Lord wants us there but need to hear from Him.
Your prayers are always very powerful.
Thanks very much,
We are praying Ken!
Did you listen to last weeks program with Tom Lester? Living Red!
Denise O’Brien has her life wrapped around Jesus………..as did Ellen Jarmer my old neighbor from Windom, Minnesota. I wrote about them both in last Thursdays CUP!
Denise never complains even thou she is blind…I had the blessing of assisting Pastor Jim Montoya in the baptism of Denise a few years back. ……Ellen never complained even thou she was paralyzed on her entire right side, from an auto accident.
I want to thanks Kelly Snelgrove for helping me gather this CUP and an upcoming sermon, “Living Red”
Living Red means different things to people……..to me it always has meant what Jesus said was so important it was put in red it also to me represents His blood that he shed for you and me, giving His life for you and me. There is nothing more important than the Words of our Lord Jesus Christ. Living Red means living for Jesus, living a life that shows the light of our Lord Jesus Christ. It’s totally surrendering your life to Jesus Christ, living for Him.
Denise knew the importance of baptism and a relationship with Jesus Christ. Charles Spurgeon said this: “Blood-red will our skirts be if through life we have sought inferior objects, and forgotten that men needed to be saved. Paul knew the ruin of man’s natural state. (I just got off our radio show and Bill Redmond and we talked exactly about this! This is why the World is sliding into hell, majority do not want to know Jesus Christ) Paul did not try to educate men, he tried to save them; he saw men sinking into hell (Just like we see today) Paul did not talk of refining them, but of saving them from the wrath to come. He raised no questions about forms or ceremonies; the gospel was the one all-important business with him. If he might save some he would be content.”
I groan for people, I groan for the world and my Country.
These are urgent times, and I don’t know if the Church gets it!
We are tied up into to many programs. To many fancy buildings, too much money……etc….
Pastor Don Kimbro told me awhile back, “The Church is not baptizing people!”
The Church in America has more product than Wal-Mart to sell!
We need to be like Paul.
Do we really read God’s Word and apply it in our daily life?
We need to live in Red
35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
John 14:1-6The words in red in many Bibles are neither more nor less important than the words in black. Jesus said to the seventy: “He that heareth you heareth me” (Luke 10:16). This was his position concerning every divinely inspired writer or speaker. While millions read the Bible daily, few know why some Bible publishers print the words of Christ in red. Mr. William Emmett Shelton, author, of Mogadore, Ohio, and Mr. Laurence S. Heely, Jr., publisher of Christian Herald Magazine, say that the idea originated with Louis KIopsch, the first editor for the Christian Herald. The November 1901 issue of that monthly ran a large advertisement offering a red letter Bible to the readers.Mr. KIopsch was born March 7, 1852, in Germany. In 1853 his mother died. The next year his father, Osmar KIopsch, M.D., brought him to the United States. Louis studied journalism at what is now Columbia University. He graduated with high honours. He rose from stock boy to editor with religious publishers, and by about 1889 he was the owner-editor of the American edition of the Christian Herald Magazine.He and his father worshiped at Brooklyn Temple, where T. DeWitt Talmadge was the minister. June 19, 1899, Dr. KIopseh was writing an editorial for the Christian Herald when his eyes fell upon Luke 22:20 and the words:”This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.”Dr. KIopsch realized that these were the words of our Savior when he instituted the Lord’s Supper. Reasoning that all blood was red, he asked himself, Why not a red letter Bible with the red words to be those of our Lord? Dr. Talmadge, his preacher, encouraged him greatly by saying: “It could do no harm, and it most certainly could do much good.”
The editor besought Bible scholars in America and Europe to submit passages they regarded as spoken by Christ while on earth. (Some publishers have since expanded this feature to include all words in red spoken by Christ.)The first printing of a red letter Bible [Copyright 1899&1900(?) by Louis Klopsch] numbered sixty thousand copies. They were printed on presses owned by Dr. KIopsch. The edition sold quickly. Presses were run day and night to supply the demand. The King of Sweden sent a congratulatory cablegram. The telegram that thrilled publisher KIopsch the most, perhaps, was one from President Theodore Roosevelt. There followed a letter on White House stationery inviting him to dine with the chief executive. He accepted.Dr. KIopsch died March 28, 1910, and was buried at Mont Lawn near Tonawanda, New York, where he had established an orphanage. The New York Tribune said:
“He will not be easily replaced. He lived and died by his own motto:
Do All the Good You Can for All the People You Can.
This, he truly did.”
