Let’s Talk 2014!

Sharon Couchman

Pastor Jim and Lori Bakker are so appreciative of your love, support and prayers throughout 2013. God gets all the glory for what was accomplished for the Kingdom last year. Many were saved, delivered and healed through the sharing of God’s Word and the preaching of the Gospel. Thank you for standing with us.

Last year during the heat of summer, Pastor Jim prophesied an upcoming season of “COLD, COLD, COLD!” As we neared the end of 2013, Storm Cleon hit with a vengeance blanketing a 1600-mile area and leaving behind record-breaking artic blasts. Those of us living in the Ozarks were surprised by how long the freezing temperatures hovered–especially since it wasn’t technically winter yet! I enjoy sleeping in a cold room huddled under a blanket, but those bone-chilling nights found me searching for an extra comforter.

Already in the first part of 2014 America has again experienced frigid temperatures in unusual areas. The national news has described many extreme weather conditions as “apocalyptic”, “biblical” or of “biblical proportion”. Continue reading

The Faithfulness of our Wonderful Lord

Betty Dewhirst

As I think back in my life at the goodness of the Lord, I am so thankful for the way the Lord has led me. I only wish that I had kept a journal along life’s way, as I know that I have forgotten many things. As I am writing this, I am asking the Lord to bring to my remembrance what I should share that would minister life to others.

John 14:26 NKJV “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” Continue reading

Tell It – Tell It All!

Diana

Revelation 12:10-11—“Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, ‘Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night.’ And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony…”

The Time Has come to open our mouths and declare the Glory of God in the earth! Has God done anything for you? Has He worked any great miracles? Has He delivered you and given you hope? What has He done for you, in you, through you? Continue reading

Sitting in God’s Presence to Hear God

TerryLynn Stubblefield

“One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple.” ~Psalm 27:4 NKJV

This verse from Psalm 27 reads like this from the Hebrew (Art Scrolls Tehellim). This is a literal Hebraic translation from the book of Psalms. (Hashem is the word for Lord).

“One thing I asked of HASHEM, that shall I see: that I dwell (literally: sit) in the House of HASHEM all the days of my life. To behold the delight of HASHEM and to meditate (literally: search).”

Just like David sought the presence of the Lord for direction, so should we. Many long to hear God’s voice and get His guidance for their life but don’t know how to accomplish this. God’s Word has the answer! Continue reading

Precious Memories

Elda McAteer

Just a few weeks ago I got a call that the house I was born in and grew up in had burned down to the ground. It was a complete shock to me. So many memories were made in that old house.

I remember playing cowboys and Indians with my cousins outside for hours. I made mud pies alongside of the house with my sisters. Memories of playing marbles and playing jacks flash through my mind.

In those day we had fun just making up things to do. Once we played around a propane tank and when we raised the lid a bunch of wasps flew out and started stinging us. Well my Aunt Nannie took out of her mouth the most ugliest brown mess you ever saw, slapped it on our stings and the stings went away. That yucky mess was called chewing tobacco! Continue reading
