So very tragic….very sad, We are in mourning for each life and all the families that have been hit with such tragedy! I call for a week of mourning in ther City. This is a horrific time in Albuquerque, it is a living hell. Lives are bring taken, families shattered, never to be the same. KOB REPORT ON RECORD YEAR IN ABQ FOR HOMICIDES!
I know I am not a popular guy to write these things, but the TRUTH needs to be told in love. We are losing our city to evil. This is a JESUS issue, this will only change with a change of hearts…hearts changed for Jesus, to be given to him. The Church must carry out The Great Commission, we are losing the battle here in ABQ at this point. The TRUTH is hard to take for some people.

Satan is roaming the streets of Albuquerque and having his way with many.
From Pastor Jerry:
As we embrace this Season of the year, we must face the reality that a vast majority of folk who celebrate Christmas with much enthusiasm and spending, have very little thought relating to the Incarnation (birth) of Christ, if understanding at all.
How can this be true of a nation founded upon Christianity? Does not the motto, “One Nation under God” have any meaning today? What has happened to our beloved country? This patriot veteran, flag-waving American old man, sees at least a large contributing factor.
Someone’s stats claim that only 7% of Americans attend Christian church services on Sundays. I’m not sure about this figure, but I have seen the following played out in church after church where I have ministered through prayer revival ministry: less than 1/2 of 1% of those who attend church interrupt their busy lives praying for their homes, churches, communities, and nation. Far less than 10% of the average Sunday morning attending persons will ever darken the door of the church’s prayer meetings. Approximately three-fourths of those who will come have had little or no discipleship in prayer, as shown in the things and manner in which they pray together. Individuals and churches that see no value in prayer or developing an intimate relationship with Christ Jesus has left their First Love!
“These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: 2 “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; 3 and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. 4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. 5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent” (Revelation 2:1-5).
Now, that will profoundly explain much of our nation’s problems!
Now, beloved Christian is the time to finally get serious about Jesus in intimacy, and serious about prayer! Pray! Learn how and what to pray! Pray! Pray some more! Discover what the nation, states, communities, churches, and families need to get back in God’s favor, and pray those things with fervor, fighting, contending, standing, expecting, “so that” praying, and continue until the answers come; changes take place. Real soul-saving, life-changing, revival bringing prayer!
Church, fall back in deep love with your First Love, Jesus the Christ! Now is the time to stop being silent about not only the reason for the season, but the Reason for all that has been created and redeemed.
Don’t just wish a Merry Christmas; be a Merry Christmas, and go on to explain why Christmas is “Merry” and Joy-filled! Pray On
Thank you Pastor Jerry!
What can the Church do? What can you and I do? We are commanded to carry out the Great Commission. This is not a political issue, which many make it, it is a JESUS issue, plain and simple. Pray for our Law Enforcement Officers, they face hell everyday.
