Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.

Jeremiah 29:7

Sadly many Americans have made politics and some politicians a god! In the last 7 years I have had more and more people tell me they have left their Church because of politics. Some say they will never go back to Church, some call me to recommend a Church that is non-political. Too many Pastors fell in love with politics. I had a Pastor from Albuquerque tell me that his Church was split right down the middle politically. The lead Pastor was doing all he could to keep the Church together. Jesus is the answer, not politics! Politics is the playground of Satan…..just look at our Country! You don’t need to preach politics, God put all the instructions in a book that we need, it is called the GOOD BOOK, THE BIBLE, not a political playbook which is the ways of man. If politics was the answer we would not be smelling hell. We are sinking, because we are not on the solid ground of Jesus! We are a Country at war with itself, we are are own worst enemy. This is an awesome message from Ed Stetzer Executive Director of the Wheaton College Billy Graham Center.

The First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, was for many years one of the most prominent churches in the Southern Baptist Convention. It was brought to prominence in the 20th century under legendary pastors George Truett and W.A. Criswell, whose two pastorates spanned 97 years. The church still carries much weight, especially among older and more traditional Southern Baptists. I contemplated on whether to write about this event. For those of you who read me, you know I’ve expressed concerns about Trump’s engagement of evangelicals. Truthfully, I didn’t have a big issue with most of what the former President said.

From Yesterday:

The Cure For What Ails America! No Divisions Among You: God has called His children to live as one big close family and to not be divided by differences

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another:
just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
 
By this all people will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another.
John 13:34-35

Pastor Dewey Note: It saddens me deeply to se all the fighting among Americans, from fighting on airplanes, in stores, on Facebook, YouTube, TikTok (I would close it down, it is a tool from Satan) fights in the streets, shootings, mass murder, fighting over COVID, so many scandal’s in America.. I have lost count. Church splits, fighting in the Church over politics, a government that is so divided it is failing to serve the people, and on and on America sinks. People talk about RACE RELATIONS, whites vs. Blacks, hate speech, killings… GOD KNOWS NO RACE! HE CREATED US ALL! STOP IT! Also how can we think we are so great of a nation when we kill God’s babies through abortion, how can we even feel good about ourselves? Americans killing Americas!!!!!There is no end to this until we become one in Jesus. Politics is destroying our Country. We are are own worst enemy. As I have said for years, Politics is the playground of Satan. Many Americans in the last 7 years have made politics and politicians GOD’S! They have put politics before God! Look at the results America!!!Where is the fruit? Will you join us in arising above this stink? Hurry up before it gets worse. All of our Children are at great risk, not much of a future here. There is no politician alive that can bring peace to America! Politicians divide America! We are dying in that division that has been created. We need a peacemaker, that is JESUS! For Sure! JESUS is the only answer! America needs a TRUE REVIVAL, not a high school pep rally! We are in the ICU and so many Americans do not know that, they are blinded by Satan. America may survive, but I hate to think what it will even look like in 6 months. TRUTH! We are praying for a peacemaker for JESUS in America, so our nation heal and many come to Jesus, before He returns. We are to be soul savers for our Lord. Warning Against Rejecting Wisdom

Sunday Reflection: No Divisions Among You

God has called His children to live as one big close family and to not be divided by differences.

To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the Scripture referenced throughout.Tribalism, a sense of loyalty and belonging to a group, can be a healthy thing when it helps us understand where we fit and to how to function together. When taken to extremes, however, it leads to polarization and hostility. This is especially common when we meet someone who doesn’t look, think, or worship the way we do.

But Christ calls us to a better way. When someone told Jesus that His family was waiting outside, He replied, “Who is My mother, and who are My brothers? … Whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother, and sister, and mother” (Matt. 12:48-50). There are no “in” or “out” groups with Jesus, no special circle or clique. In Him, we are one family, whole and inviolate, and petty differences shouldn’t separate us. (See 1 Cor. 1:10.)

Think about it

  •  Consider your church family. Does everyone look and think the way you do? How might you go about forming bonds with other believers who, though different in many ways, are your brothers and sisters in Christ?

Bible in One Year: 2 John 1, 3 John 1, Jude 1

Will You Be In Church Today? The Slippery Slope of Families Attending Church Less

We pray that we help light a fire for TRUE REVIVAL in America! NO POLITICS! NO POLITICAL GOD’S! In the ministry of FGGAM, we reach many folks who have left the Church because of politics. They left because of the preacher, preaching support for certain candidates. Many folks contacted me, many right here in Albuquerque. They got tired of it. ME TOO!!!! Many may never return to the Church. I thank God for the opportunity to serve HIM! AND HIM ALONE!!!!!!! Not politics! Not a certain group of people! ALL PEOPLE, ALL OVER THE WORLD!!!!! God has entrusted us with a ministry that reaches the world, we try hard every day not to disappoint God. Too many no longer look at the Church for answers to todays problems in the world. If you have left the Church, please contact me, I would like to talk to you and I have a list of Churches that produce fruit.

There is a trend happening in churches. Families are attending church less frequently.  In most cases, families that used to attend twice a month are now attending church once a month. Families that used to come once a month are now only showing up at Christmas and Easter.

There are many reasons why this is happening.  Here are a few key ones…
