I AM NOT THROWING THE YEAR 2020 UNDER THE BUS AND HERE IS THE REASON WHY
TO OUR ENTIRE HERITAGE FAMILY AND OUR WONDERFUL FRIENDS WHOM GOD HAS GIVEN US THROUGH THE YEARS.
Here comes God’s Son, here comes God’s Son, right down the Son of God Lane,
Men and women washed and sanctified by his precious blood,
Praying night and day church bells ringing,
Robed choirs singing, all the timing is right.
So make sure your ready cause God’s Son could come before tonight.
Well, here we are, another week into the longest pandemic on record. This is a year of lessons learned, and we cannot look back for looking forward. Do you find it strange that Christmas movies have been playing on television for the past six months? I have even heard people talking about this strange addiction. Why do you think this is happening? It is because, built into the Christmas Message are faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love. I have to admit, I have watched a few, myself along with GayNell. Each of these made for T.V. movies has a happy ending and that is the message the producers, the screenwriters, and the broadcasting company are attempting to communicate. It is called subliminal suggestion, and the advertisers believe the viewers will buy more of the products that are being advertised during the broadcast.
For over half a century I have watched from the bleachers as some people allow everyone uses them. Think

Our theme for the month of December is: OUR GIFT TO GOD’S WORLD. CHRIST IS GOD’S GIFT TO US, AND WE ARE GOD’S GIFT TO THE WORLD. Have you ever thought of yourself as a gift to those around you? It is thoughts like this that can change the trajectory of a person’s life.
For several days this verse has been running over and over in my mind. Over the years when there has been national distress, this verse has served as a reminder to me of the fact that a Mighty Fortress is our God. It awakens me to the truth of God’s keeping power, and also that we can always find a way to go deeper into His protective promises even if it is only under the shelter of His wings. In Jeremiah 49, we are offered a glimpse of what happens when God judges nations that chose to strut across the pages of history as they will never cease to exist. He even brings to task those nations that practiced child sacrifice, as well as those who may have thought they were invincible. God had a blueprint for those who defied Him then, and He also has a blueprint for those who would defy Him now.
