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, video or audio we present here.  If the presentation 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.

Upper or Supper Room

The early Church prayed in the upper room, the twentieth century Church cooks in the supper room.

Today the supper room has taken the place of the upper  room.  Pay has taken the place of prayer, and feasting the place of fasting.  There are more full stomachs than there are bended knees and broken hearts.  There is more fire in the range in the kitchen, than there is in the pulpit.  When you build a fire in the church kitchen, it often, if not altogether, puts out the fire in the pulpit.  Ice cream chills the fervor of spiritual life.

The early Christians were not cooking in the supper room the day the Holy Ghost came, they were praying in the upper room.  They were not waiting on tables, they were waiting on God.  They were detained by the command of God, and not entertained by the cunning of men.  They were all filled with the Holy Ghost, not stuffed with a stew or roast.

Oh, I would like the cooking squad put out, and the praying band put in; less pie, and more piety; less use for the cookbook, and more use for the old Book.  Putout the fire in the kitchen and build it  on the altar.  More love and more life, fewer dinners and get after sinners.  Let us have a church full of waiters on God, a church full of servers, serving God and waiting for His Son from heaven.

(excerpt from Illustrations for Church Service by Walter B. Knight)

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.
