There are many, many folks out there living lives honorable to God--living the “high road” of Christian ethics. However, our society is showing many signs of turning away from good morals. More and more people are living lives that are not honorable to God; people are blatantly living immoral, unethical lives and are proud about it. This is not a good thing!
Some examples of “high-road” and “low road” morals are listed below:
My mother once said to me, “Sybil, make sure you choose the “high-road” instead of the “low-road” in your life.” How long will God continue to bless our society if more and more people are living the “low road” of bad morals?
God, have mercy on us--help us to follow the “high road” of good ethics. Help us to find you, your truth, and your salvation through Jesus! Help us to keep a strong moral society!
In Christ, Sybil Nelson

Large numbers of Americans voted on November 2nd for the candidates of their choice! It is encouraging to know that people are caring about the political decisions that are being made and want their voices to be heard!
We will keep praying for all the new and old politicians in our city, state and nation. We are admonished by the Bible in I Timothy 2:1-3:
“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior…”
In Christ, Sybil Nelson

I read some great articles today and want to share them with you 7-14-10 by David Nelson
The articles I read today have made me think and I want to share how they have struck me. I also want to share my heart with you about what the Lord has been saying in my heart and hopefully you will identify with all this. I'm going to be sharing about a great earthquake in the midst of the U.S., the wilderness you may be in, and what kind of church theLord is looking for.
I read some verses the other day that have always been a mystery to me but through which I felt the Lord was trying to say something important to me. I want to share my heart about giving up more to follow Him (something that few (including myself at times) really want to do more unless you really hear the call of the Lord clearly). Now, I have made that plunge at various times in my life to the bet of my knowledge, to give up more to follow Him. But I feel the Lord is impressing this on me again. please know that I enjoy my life with various (hopefully innocent) hobbies that I am always ready to drop when the Lord calls or requires more of me. These hobbies I have enjoyed through the past 20 years I have always tried to put in the Lord's hands and have never wanted them to get a hold of my heart too much (where your treasure is there your heart is). I feel that the Lord has assured me that He gives these enjoyments for my pleasure and He will govern them with me. I've always tried to limit how far I will go in a hobby so as not to let it get my heart too much. The verses the Lord impressed on me are Matt. 6:22,23 which read, "The lamp of the body is the eye. if therefore your eye be single, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is evil, bad, or dark your whole body will be full of darkness." (You can drop down to my thoughts on the middle of the U.S. earthquake, or "your wilderness" if the single eye is not your interest, all though your eye being single relates to everything else below). So, if your heart be for the glory of God alone, focused on seeking Him and His kingdom first, then all you do will relate to your one goal and will bring glory to Him. But if you have hidden covetousness, self-seeking, greed, worldly goals, doing things for your own glory (down deep inside, these are your real motives) then what you do will take the wrong turns and lead you into more darkness.
The other day in prayer I felt the Lord say to me, don't go deeper into your hobbies now but desire to bring more glory to Me than ever before. More of His glory in me, more of His glory shining from me, more full of His light than ever before, I can only ask lord for you to help me to get to this. More singleness of eye, more full of His light. Well, give me grace and may He give us all grace for this. For what is coming will require more focus and more light as I will explain.
Now I am going to share the following articles written by others and make comments on them after you read them.

To Be A Disciple
Luke 14:33 - In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.
This is a verse I have never heard preached on in any church. I have heard taught "How to get everything that is yours in Jesus", "How to claim your rights in Jesus", "How to receive God's promises", but I have never heard this verse expounded on in any church. Today's doctrines are all about how to get what we want from God, not about how we need to be obeying God's commands. Luke 14:33 is one of His commands many of you will have to obey in the near future.
Giving up everything I had is something the Lord has required me to do twice in the past 28 years, in 1984 and in 2005. Was it something I wanted to do? Heck no!! But it was what the Lord required of me. Even now, everything I own will fit in the front seat of my truck. Am I happy about it? Absolutely not! All the precious memories, all the pictures, all the letters, all the mementos, everything that was dear to me I had to give up. Do I miss those things? Yes, I do. Did it hurt to lose them? Yes. But I have learned to be content (not happy, but content) without all those things.
In the near future many of you will be required to leave virtually everything behind when you have to flee the cities before God's judgment falls upon them. Many of you will have to flee in the face of persecution and to avoid death when the foreign armies are occupying this nation and indiscriminately killing people. Some of you along the Gulf Coast will have to flee before the destruction that is almost upon that part of the country. You will have to leave behind all your precious treasures and just take the bare essentials with you. I am telling you this ahead of time so that you can begin to ponder these things and mentally and spiritually prepare yourselves to be able to leave everything behind. If you truly want to be His disciple, you will have to give up everything. If you do not, you will be so burdened down that you will never make it to the places of refuge.

> Subject: [revival] THE WILDERNESS - How Important?
> WHY The 'WILDERNESS'?
> -Andrew Strom.
> The 'wilderness' is not a concept that is understood too well in
> Christendom, despite the fact that it is all the way through the
> Bible. From the book of Genesis right through Revelation there
> are clear references to the 'wilderness' as being something God
> often employs in His dealings with men. The pattern is undeniable.
> When we look through the Scriptures we see that the wilderness
> is often a place of spiritual "crisis" and also preparation. It is the
> place God sends us before the "real action" begins - before we
> enter into the full purposes of God in our lives. There must be
> 'death' before there can be resurrection. There must be a desert
> place before the "promised land".
> The wilderness is a place of trial and testing, of brokenness and
> full surrender to God. The props and activities that have kept us
> continually striving to "make things happen" are stripped away.
> Our self-reliance is shattered and replaced with a total reliance on
> God alone. Every "idol" in our lives (often including our own ministry)
> is brought under the piercing searchlight of God. Our selfish motives
> and ambitions are shown for what they are. This process may take
> years. Finally we emerge broken, chastened and purified. The
> process has matured and cleansed us in so many ways. We are
> now ready for the fulfillment of all that God originally called us to
> do. But our heart-motives are vastly different from what they were
> We see this pattern all the way through Scripture. Many lessons
> can be learned from what we read there. Abraham, Joseph, Joshua,
> Moses, David, Elijah, John the Baptist, Paul the apostle - and even
> Jesus Himself - all had to go through this "wilderness" experience.
> Very often it lasted for years and years. Why then should we be
> surprised if it happens to us?
> Probably the best-known instance of a 'wilderness experience' in
> the Old Testament is the story of Moses and the children of Israel.
> Moses had been raised and trained all his life in the palaces of
> Egypt. But when he came face-to-face with his heritage as an
> Israelite, he rose up "in his own strength" and killed an Egyptian
> slave-driver. He was then forced to flee into the desert, where he
> was to spend 40 YEARS as a simple shepherd in the wilderness.
> What an enormous length of time! Imagine if every Christian leader
> had to spend that long in the wilderness before God would allow
> them to lead His people! It is almost impossible to imagine the
> depths of despair and "death" to all his dreams and hopes that
> Moses went through during this time. In fact, after 40 years it is
> hard to imagine anyone being "deader" to the usual ambitions
> and temptations of leadership than Moses would have been. And
> what PATIENCE these years of waiting must have produced in him!
> We see here the lengths that God will go to in the "preparation"
> of a leader "after His own heart." (-Though 40 years is unusually
> long). The isolation, the chafing, the crying out to God for deliverance
> - all play their part. Such an experience is almost irreplaceable.
> That is why God uses it so often. The hearts of driven men are so
> similar in so many ways, that God's "cure" becomes similar also!
> He will even shut us up in a kind-of 'prison' for a time so we cannot
> escape the process. It is that important. He does not want 'self'-
> oriented leaders shepherding his precious sheep.
> After his 40 years of preparation, Moses returned to Egypt at God's
> command to lead His people out of bondage. This was the beginning
> of the entire nation of Israels' wilderness experience. For when they
> left Egypt the only way to their "Promised Land" was through the
> desert. Some commentators say that in a straight line, their journey
> could have taken just a few weeks or less. But because of their
> disobedience and fear, the vast majority of those who left Egypt
> were destined to die in the desert, never reaching the Promised
> Land. In fact, their wilderness journey ended up taking 40 years!
> Now we need to take special note of this fact:- Not everyone who
> entered the wilderness survived it. In fact, multitudes perished there.
> The wilderness tried them and found them wanting. They went to
> the place of testing and failed the test. This is a pretty crucial fact
> to realize in our day also. Just because we are "called out" and
> enter a wilderness time, does not mean that we will embrace the
> dealings of God and respond appropriately. It is entirely possible
> to lose everything out there. These people lost out completely.
> Only their children came through to inherit the promises of God.
> How clearly we see this pattern over and over again - in both the
> Old Testament and the New:- That many whom God wants to one
> day use are sent into a place of aloneness and brokenness before
> being brought into their true destiny. We have not even mentioned
> heroes of God such as Noah, Jacob, Job and others who all had
> similar experiences. Part of this process lies in the "waiting" that
> takes place. Also, the fact that all the supporting 'props' are taken
> away. The "waiting" alone can be torture.
> The wilderness also deals with any fear of man or 'systemized'
> way of looking at things. God often uses it to bring a whole fresh
> perspective, which is very important for leaders who are going to
> be representing a "new" approach or facing opposition because of
> the confrontational words that they are bringing. The lonely desert
> years give them backbone to stand up to the crowd or the powers-
> that-be, and declare God's truth without compromise. They now
> truly fear God rather than man. And they think differently from
> others. The wilderness is vital for anyone who is wanting to bring
> fresh manna to God's people.
> Are you someone who has been going through such a "desert"
> experience, my friend? Be encouraged! Look up, for your deliverance
> draws nigh. God only ever sends His children through such
> experiences when there is a great purpose to it. Don't give up. Don't
> be cast down. On the other side lies a 'land of promise' if only you
> can hang on to Jesus. Be active, be praying, be prepared. Don't
> become "passive" and let the desert swallow you whole. Use this
> time to draw closer and closer to Jesus. Dig down and plant your
> feet firmly on the Rock. Humble yourself before the Lord and He
> will lift you up in due time - if only you can cling to Him.
> God bless you all.
> Andrew Strom.
.> "The PARADE"
> -Gary Bixler.
> We have been taught go gospel at all. Those of us who sit in the
> pews of our comfortable churches and live a life full of the fruits
> of self-indulgence and selfish goals and dreams. Those of us
> who name the Name of Christ as if we are His people, yet who
> bear none of the fruit of His Spirit, show none of His power,
> exhibit little of His love and holiness. We proclaim Christ and
> yet don't live Christ. We seek for Him and yet don't find Him.
> He is a foreigner to us, and a great mystery that we worship
> from afar, because we have been taught and followed no gospel
> at all.
> This gospel that is no gospel requires nothing. It is an easy gospel,
> full of the desire for a good life, full of desire for happiness and
> security, and prosperity. It is a gospel that says we are fine.
> That gives us license to enjoy our affluence...
> This gospel that is no gospel has led us down the wide way that
> leads to destruction. The vast crowd moves smoothly down the
> easy, wide boulevard, lined with trees, bright with sun, bands
> playing, kids holding balloons, clowns cavorting, drummers
> drumming and baton twirlers performing. This giant parade is
> self-propelled, well-orchestrated, and led by a charming group
> of men and women decked out in the finest uniforms.
> Behind the scenes there are skilled technicians, making sure every
> good view reaches the cameras, and every performer in this
> spectacular event is doing his job, so that the onlookers at home
> and in person can be entertained. There are security forces in
> plain-clothes, ready to quietly deal with any strange behavior or
> disruption, for the parade must go on, and uninterrupted by
> anything out of place or unseemly.
> This gospel that is no gospel is a spectator sport. It is a parade
> that is carefully prepared each week, by the best paid minds in
> the churches. Those with the talent to put it all together, and
> create the best show possible. They were hired by the attendees,
> the crowds, to please them and to earn their salaries by making
> sure that nothing goes wrong or is out of place. To create flow,
> and crowd dynamics, and to build everything around a theme
> that makes a great point. To achieve a synergy with music and
> word that works up to a climax that will bring the audience to its
> feet with new vitality and encouragement for the week ahead, so
> they can hold onto their gospel until the next parade.
