Happy Valentine's Day-2011

Posted: 2011-02-11 19:31:28 by: Sybil Nelson

Many of us celebrate romantic love this time of year, along with the love we have for our friends and families. That is a good thing!   We want to say, too, that we are thankful for God’s unfailing love and mercy for all people.  

Below are a few GREAT verses about God’s love and mercy:

“We love Him because he first loved us.”  I John 4:19

“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),”  Ephesians 2:4-5

“And now abide faith, hope, and love, these three, but the greatest of these is love.”  I Cor 13:13

EVERYONE have a Very Blessed and Happy Valentine’s Day 2011!

Flee from Babylon-Quotes

Posted: 2010-12-26 13:26:02 by: David Nelson

The Lord is sending messengers to his Church to let them know what he is thinking and what he wants to say to those who have an ear to hear. It says in the Word that God does nothing unless he reveals it to his prophets first. The Church does not fully understand the offices of prophet and apostle for our day, who may travel from city to city and not reside permanently in one church. What do we do with this re-emergence of the true prophet and the true apostle? Either we are taught to be afraid of them and insulate ourselves from them or we must be taught to be close enough to God so that we know his voice when we hear it. All of God’s people, from the least to the greatest, must know the Lord for themselves and know his voice when they hear it. Everyone should know when a false prophet speaks and when a true prophet speaks, not just the pastor.

Leaving Earth's Gravity-Quotes

Posted: 2010-12-26 13:16:58 by: David Nelson

We need to escape the gravity of this earth.

Much of the Church are ground birdsthat cannot fly. They peck along the ground and seldom look up for higher things. It takes a lot of energy to flap your wings hard and get the thrust you need to break the hold this earth has on us and get up in the air and soar where the eagles fly. We are so busy, even with what we consider “Christian things.” Our appointment books are full. Our lives are really full of worldly things, love for the world and (our own ideas) of what God wants us to do. To break free of the gravity of this world takes a considerable effort to hear and see and do only what he says. With our appointment books empty to see only “what the Father is doing” and hear only “what the Father is saying” and do nothing in our own authority or of our own ideas will take a radical change in our way of living.

What is happening to Christian Ethics?

Posted: 2010-11-06 15:37:50 by: Sybil Nelson

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:


High-road morals:






















Pure thinking






Low-road morals:

Lovers of themselves

Lovers of money




Disobedient to parents






Without self-control


Despisers of good




Lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God

Americans Voted!!!

Posted: 2010-11-06 14:03:22 by: 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

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

My confession:  I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees.  I don't feel threatened.  I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are, Christmas trees.

It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu. If people want a crèche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away. I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians.  I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period.  I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country.  I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat. 

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking.

Local Teens are praying!

Posted: 2009-09-23 23:42:12 by: Melissa Walker-Des Moines Register

Iowa students join national prayer day event at their schools


They gathered shortly before sunrise this morning. The loud noise of construction equipment muffled their voices, and dozens of their classmates gawked as they walked by.

A dozen Urbandale High School students held hands, formed a circle and prayed to God for their faith, one another, their school, family and friends, and even the school’s principal, as part of national “See You at the Pole” prayer demonstration. They also sang and read scripture, but mostly prayed and spoke words of encouragement to one another and for others.

Suffering and "faith" message

Posted: 2009-08-28 13:35:32 by: David Nelson

The New and Old Testaments teach more about suffering and not that everything is going to go well for us all the time. The “faith” message  gives the idea that we can control our circumstances. Going through hard things deepens our character and makes the gold of our faith purer through various sufferings. A deeper joy will come from the firing of our gold. Not just a shallow happiness of “all good times” but a deep joy that everything (good and bad) works together to make us what He wants us to be. (there will be times of fire and times of rich blessings too). People are being deceived when they are told that they can control all circumstances with their words or their faith. Things do happen to us ordained by God in which we must keep our eyes upon God and keep trusting in Him even when hard things do not go away.

Knowing Jesus

Posted: 2009-08-26 22:31:38 by: David Nelson

Many in the Church think they are saved but God wants us to understand what it really means to be saved. Jesus said, “This is eternal life, to know Him….” (Jn. 17:3) We must know the Lord and have a relationship with Him. We must talk to Him and know His voice when He talks to us. With this relationship we will grow in righteousness and become like Him in holiness. We are to know His voice, follow Him and love Him.
