Please Post Your Comments at the end of the article.  We appreciate your thoughts on this article.

We would ask you to pray about each article we print here.  If the article is about a Preacher or Ministry which we feel is preaching or teaching false doctrine or false teachings, we would ask you to be in prayer that the Lord would touch their hearts and minds so that they might see the error in their ways and turn to the Holy God who is Lord over and of our lives.  We mean no ill will to anyone or any ministry but we must, according to Scripture, warn the people when we see the enemy at work regardless of the nature if it is contrary to God's Word.

A Thought To Ponder
with Pastor Wise

I want to share something I read recently of which I believe will be of great meaning to you in regards to your walk with the Lord.

Life Is Short, Death Is Sure, Eternity Awaits

"We have finished our years like a sigh." As I write, an Asia-Pacific-wide economic conference is in progress in this City.  Red carpets are rolled out, the press stands at the ready, police sirens blare, and people gawk as the influential and powerful confer over economic policies affecting tens of millions of lives.  Impressive.  Daunting.

 Recently the founder of a FORTUNE 500 company passed into eternity. I had the privilege of knowing this man and his family. He was impressive! Daunting!  Shortly after his death, his son dined in our home and told of his father's waning months, as cancer slowly took its toll. This once powerful giant of American industry withered into a shell, finding the most basic functions a chore.

 He had, as the Psalmist forewarned, "finished [his] years like a sigh" (or " whisper"). And that will be the inevitable conclusion of these powerful leaders attending this Asia-Pacific economic conference… As it will also be with us.

 PERSPECTIVE is what is needed here: Life is short. Death is sure. Eternity awaits us.  Just walk through a cemetery and observe the infamous and the unknowns, along with the rich and powerful. All share the same piece of real estate.

 There is no status in a cemetery.  Just as men share a common place of burial, men apart from Christ—regardless of "standing," will meet God in a common judgment:  "And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and the books were opened… and they were judged, every one of them… " (Revelation 20:12, 13a)

The Psalmist's wise words speak to our soul, "So teach us to number our days that we may present to Thee a heart of wisdom." – Psalm 90:12

ASK YOURSELF: As you contemplate the inescapable reality that your life is moving toward death's conclusion, are you presently applying your heart to wisdom?.....Facts of the Matter, Daily Devotional

Billy Sunday"Take 15 minutes each day to listen to God talking to you; take
minutes each day to talk to God; take 15 minutes each day to talk to others about God." - Billy Sunday
Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God. Maybe that would be a good thing for us to do also?

Charles Spurgeon
Charles Spurgeon, known widely as the "Prince of Preachers" has given the world many good and lasting sermons, quotes and information to help in your walk with the Lord, especially concerning helping to win souls for Christ.  Though you may not agree with everything Spurgeon said, he has left us with much to be thankful for.

Then & Now
A preacher in those days, when he felt God called him to preach, didn't hunt up a college or seminary, he hunted up a good horse, took off across the country and began crying "Behold the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sin of the world"!   Today they look for the best paying job with the best retirement package.
