VOM Radio: Iran: Church Planting with Padina

This is an amazing story of how the Lord is working in Iran, where the missionaries must live and work like secret government operatives.
Join me in not only praying for this people group whose reshim would think nothing of killing them for just calling out the word “Abba”, but also the extreme risk the vessels of the Lord; Jesus are putting themselves in as well!
Enjoy the information, and continue to enjoy our ability to public pray, as we could wake up tomorrow in be in the same situation right here in the United States of America!
In Christ,

Adam “Tracy” Smith

Watch “Why Memorize Scripture Is So Important” – John Piper

I have just been reviewing some new material for our veterans ministry; This is a program especially designed to teach individuals with memory issues how to easily memorize biblical scriptures.

Below is a video by John Piper in reference to how important it is for us to know the scriptures. I personally do not agree with the Calvinist, nor their theology. But what John Piper is saying here is mainly common sense, not the Calvinist Doctrine.

Note: John Piper is only giving an endorsement, he is not affiliated with this memorization program, it was developed by the two time world champion of memorization.

Combat Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress, have serious issues with memory, Gulf War Veterans suffering from Gulf War Illness have a much higher degree of memory loss due to the many toxins which they were exposed to in 1990-91′.

Why Memorize Scripture – John Piper: http://youtu.be/lLQHP8vtWt4

On the website for the lesson(s) program, which I am greatly praying over purchasing, it is very clear that we fall into one of two categories;

1. We have our whole lives had problems memorizing anything.

2. It is scientifically, and medically proven the older we get, if we have lagged in using the part of our brains that control memorization, we will have an extremely hard time later in life training our brains to do well in this area.

“Faith comes through hearing; and hearing comes through the Word of God.”
~Romans 10:17~

In my calling from God our Father; Abba. I am above all things striving daily to be obedient unto His will, and not the will of this world. I am seeking your prayers not only first for my obedience, but secondly, that we, through Abba will be able to save lives of our nation’s heroes. who are struggling daily in their “War at Home”. I have a direct and personal connection to these men and women who wrote a blank check to this nation, up to and encluding the giving of their lives in military service.
What they did not sign up for, and so shamefully in no way deserve is their need for help, and our government turning it’s back on these volunteer warriors, ever day, all across our great nation.
Our ministry is simply introducing our troops to Jehovah-Rapha; “God whom heals”!
When I returned from Operation Desert Shield / Storm 1990-91′, I ran from my problems for five years, then I was “introduced” for a better lack of words to the VA Medical Center, over a period of years I seen many veterans die from their treatment, or lack of treatment.

Having been a Christian since 77′, I finally did what I should have done years before? I feel on my knees in reverent prayer to the Lord; Christ Jesus, my redeemer….”The Healer of Healers”, and He saved my life!

In turn, in 2010′ I surrendered unto His calling for me to enter His ministry to help, aid, and assist my Comrades in the only way to a truly better life, through Christ!

Note: I did not state in any way or form, that Christ has promised His followers that we would forever live under a dome of joy, without trials or tribulations, but quite the opposite. For once we surrendered our lives unto Christ, we have literally built a fire under Satan’s rear….and he and his league of demon’s have just declared you “enemy number one”! He and his wisdom in deception have placed a target upon you, your family, friends, and any, and every single thing in your life which has importance to you, but moreover the things which Satan feels he can break your faith with. Earthy things, as my former pastor and long time mentor referred to as “stuff”! We came into this world naked, and as Bro. Bob Pitman says, quote: “the first person we ever met, and hadn’t even been properly introduced slapped our bottom and we cried, and we are going out of this world naked, and most of us in tears.” (end quote). We own nothing, it doesn’t matter if you pick up beer cans for a living, or if your name is Warren Buffet, everything is the property of the Almighty God! The earth is his footstool!

I have been blessed by my trials and tribulations, this week in Connection Class; Dr. Mike Day said, quote: “you are coming out of a storm, in the middle of a storm, or you are headed straight into one”, end quote., and Amen Bro. Mike!

The moral of Bro. Mike’s example is, every time we come through a spiritual battle steadfast in faith in Christ Jesus we are stronger! And until the Lord calls us home, or we are living where the Rapture accrues (the second coming of Jesus), we will remain in spiritual warfare nearly daily!

So, I have made a salmon promise unto God, that I well knew, He owed me NOTHING, and I owed Him my everything. So many folks come up with this off the wall ideas or theology that God owes us our Salvation because we believe? That is the furtherist thing in this world from the truth, but it is what Satan would have you believe.

God loves every single person on the face of the earth the same, and that is called Agape LOVE, the highest form of all love. But this neither will save your soul. Salvation is… now listen closely, a “gift”, the most precious gift we could ever be offered, yes, offered. For this gift is offered unto every single soul in this reached world, and it is offered by Christ Jesus, by His most sacred blood which ran down that old rugged cross upon the hill of Calvary! But..we must afirm this “gift”, and we must do so by the repentance of our sins, crying out unto God, acknowledging that we BELEIVE with everything we are in that He sent His ONLY begotten son for God’s love of all men, brethren, listen to these verses, for this is ALL mans first step unto eternal life!

“For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time His righteousness: that he might be just, and the just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.”
~Romans 3:23-26~ KJV

Please continue to pray for the souls of our military men and women still fighting the war at home. Love on them every single chance you get, and just try to lift up their day. For I assure you brethren, there days are wreched, form dawn to dusk, and I know that all they need to understand, and be made clear. The ONE thing that will help them through this day is, to; “LEAN ON JESUS!” If you have a friend, a family member, a coworker, or just someone in your community whom you care about? Please don’t wait until the shadow of the death passes over them, please don’t. I have lost so many so many beloved brothers in arms, not on only the battlefield, but ten times as many after returning home.

It will not cost anyone a red cent to reach out to us. Here am I Lord, send me.
In Christ,

15th Annual Mid-South Men’s Conference @ Faith Baptist Church; Guest Speaker; Bro. Kevin Hamm. “Showing up for Jesus”

http://bible.com/1/luk.7.36-50.kjv And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to meat. And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner. And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged. And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven. And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also? And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

~Luke 7:36-50~ KJV

“FORTY DAYS OF LENT”; day 09.

I just finished day 9 of the @YouVersion Plan;

“40 Days of Lent.”

As Lent, and the Holiest of days; Easter Sunday, is in fast approach, waste not an hour, nor minutes which could be spent in conversation with your Heavenly Father; Abba, ever showing humble respect for the “gift” of Salvation, which He has made available to us all through the blood of His only begotten son; Christ Jesus at Calvary. Christ is the risen Lamb of God!

Yes, another great evening with one of my favorite “Men of God”; Charles H. Spurgeon.

I at my weakest in searching for messages to share, often turn to the “Prince of Preachers”, I can only imagine what it was like to hear Bro. Spurgeon in person, I am certain many a men sat with the hair standing on the backs of their necks in his sermons.  I hope this short scripture from Leviticus, and our Father’s message delivered through Bro. Spurgeon brings you as much joy and understand of the Word as he always does myself.

In Christ,

“Behold, if the leprosy have covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague.”

~Leviticus 13:​13~   KJV

Strange enough this regulation appears, yet there was wisdom in it, for the throwing out of the disease proved that the constitution was sound. This evening it may be well for us to see the typical teaching of so singular a rule. We, too, are lepers, and may read the law of the leper as applicable to ourselves. When a man sees himself to be altogether lost and ruined, covered all over with the defilement of sin, and in no part free from pollution; when he disclaims all righteousness of his own, and pleads guilty before the Lord, then he is clean through the blood of Jesus, and the grace of God. Hidden, unfelt, unconfessed iniquity is the true leprosy; but when sin is seen and felt, it has received its deathblow, and the Lord looks with eyes of mercy upon the soul afflicted with it. Nothing is more deadly than self-righteousness, or more hopeful than contrition. We must confess that we are “nothing else but sin,” for no confession short of this will be the whole truth; and if the Holy Spirit be at work with us, convincing us of sin, there will be no difficulty about making such an acknowledgment–it will spring spontaneously from our lips. What comfort does the text afford to truly awakened sinners: the very circumstance which so grievously discouraged them is here turned into a sign and symptom of a hopeful state! Stripping comes before clothing; digging out the foundation is the first thing in building–and a thorough sense of sin is one of the earliest works of grace in the heart. O thou poor leprous sinner, utterly destitute of a sound spot, take heart from the text, and come as thou art to Jesus–

“For let our debts be what they may, however great or small,
As soon as we have nought to pay, our Lord forgives us all.
‘Tis perfect poverty alone that sets the soul at large:
While we can call one mite our own, we have no full discharge.”
