Dear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Let me share what the Lord has shown me today to share with you……..
“Therefore will the Lord wait that He may be gracious unto you.” Isaiah 30:18
Last night I watched the movie “Long Walk to Freedom” it is a must see movie, the true story about the life of Nelson Mandela, it is based on his Autobiography. Sure sends a great message as America continues to struggle with racism. America, a country that was still hanging Blacks from trees into the late 60’s and continues to kill babies through abortion. Mandela would say, “people are not born with hate, they are taught to hate, they can be taught to love.” Amen! One of the main messages that I got from the movie was waiting……Mandela was a Methodist. He was in prison from 1964 until 1982. Waiting. The man was a key in ending the violence and killings in South Africa. He waited and waited to be released from prison, during that time a son died and his Mother also passed away. You must watch the movie and read the book.
Before I go any further on this message about waiting…I am very disturbed about this next story!,,,How come the secular media is not all over this story???!!!??!!,,,,,,,The Lord has impressed upon me to share this ugly story about what happens when you do not know Jesus Christ, when Satan is your God. Satan is alive and well. This is one of the worst stories I have had to report in 40 years of news. I just about vomited. But you must read it and use it as an example as to what happens when you do not have a relationship with Jesus, where you have a mind of Stan, a min that no way can please God. Time is urgent, we must help save people!
Can you even imagine the pain of the family……..they or him, poured lighter fluid down her throat! You see we must preach heaven and hell, like Billy Graham has always done. The majority of America does not believe in hell or Satan, that is the same in the Church, believe it or not. People believe there is no ramifications for bad behavior! I will tell you that a huge part of me wants these or this thug to face the death penalty. Preachers must preach heaven, hell, Satan, forgiveness, repentance, the blood of Jesus…….
Imagine the pain of the family………………try to………………..imagine waiting for the pain to pass………. Satan, is the darkness, not a friend of Jesus.
Can you even imagine not being a friend of Jesus?
Proclaim the good news……………This will brighten your day…….help save the world, Proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ:
Over the years I have been such an impatient man. I have gotten better with this by getting closer to Jesus Christ. It is still a problem for me, of the flesh. I am waiting upon the Lord on some things, I am waiting for some people to get back to me on important matters, I have some dear friends that are waiting on the results of medical tests. We continue to pray for Kathy Garcia who has cancer surgery tomorrow. Wanell Pate is going to have cancer surgery on Jan. 7th. We are also in prayer for Steve and Andra Minor’s son Matthew, who is going to have a biopsy on a mass on his right thigh. Please pray over that. Wanell, Kathy, Matthew and families are waiting. Let us be in prayer.
Charles Spurgeon writes………
God often delays in answering prayer. We have several instances of this in sacred Scripture. Jacob did not get the blessing from the angel until near the dawn of the day——he had to wrestle all night for it. The poor woman of Syrophenicia was answered not a word for a long while. Paul besought the Lord thrice that “the thorn in the flesh” might be taken from him, and he received no assurance that it should be taken away, but instead thereof a promise that God’s grace should be sufficient for him. If thou hast been knocking at the gate of mercy, and received no answer shall I tell thee why the mighty Maker hath not opened the door and let thee in? Our Father has reasons peculiar to Himself for thus keeping us waiting. Sometimes it is to show His power and His sovereignty, that men may know that Jehovah has a right to give or withhold. More frequently the delay is for our profit. Thou art perhaps kept waiting in order that thy desires may be more fervent. God knows that delay will quicken and increase desire, and that if He keeps thee wating thou wilt see thy necessity more clearly, and wilt seek more earnestly; and that thou wilt prize the mercy all the more for its long tarrying. There also may be something wrong in thee which has need to be removed, before the joy of the Lord is given. Perhaps thy views of the Gospel plan are confused, or thou mayest be placing some little reliance on thyself, instead of trusting simply and entirely to the Lord Jesus. Or, God makes thee tarry awhile that He may the more fully display the riches of His grace to thee at last. Thy prayers are all filed in heaven, and if not immediately answered they are certainly not forgotten, but in a little while shall be fulfilled to thy delight and satisfaction. Let not despair make thee silent, but continue instant in earnerst supplication.
WOW! WOW! DYNAMITE!!!!!!! SHARE WITH YOUR PASTOR!! SHARE WITH EVERYONE! AMEN!
Okay let’s end this CUP with a good laugh and a great Christmas video……..

The Real Doughboy: A Sad Minnesota Passing
Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community.
The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday in Minneapolis of a yeast infection and traumatic complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.
Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The gravesite was piled high with flours.
Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded.
Born and bread in Minnesota, Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not regarded as a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes.
Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and served as a positive roll model for millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough, and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.
The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 min.
If you smiled while reading this, please rise to the occasion and pass it on to someone having a crumby day and kneading a lift.
Worship Hallelujah Christmas Make sure a click and watch this! Thank you Shonda Savage!
That’s it for today! At least for the CUP! I am manning the newsroom this afternoon and all night.
For God’s Glory Alone in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ, Dewey, Sharon, Family and FGGAM Team
Let us keep praying for each other and our families and neighbors!
