Loneliness – Bulletin for November 26

Loneliness

In our church we have many people who may be dealing with loneliness. When we are lonely we feel disconnected from the people around us. You can be in a house full of people or sitting in church and feel lonely. Some try to escape loneliness by staying busy. Others by spending money on food, gifts, and entertainment. Others by chattering on Facebook, Twitter, etc. After all these activities are over, we are still lonely. We can be overwhelmed with self-pity, bitterness, and depression.

God uses our loneliness to teach us the emptiness of superficial relationships with God and others. Our relationship with God needs to be living and real. Only God can satisfy a lonely heart. Psalm 63:3-6 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.

Jesus understands our loneliness. He can help us. Hebrews 4:14-16 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Our own loneliness can help us to see the loneliness and pain of others. Our loneliness can draw us into loving fellowship with others. It is possible for us to have many good friends. Proverbs 18:24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

Our love for others must not demand attention, love, or companionship from others. We must not become manipulative of others. We will end up even more lonely, defeated and empty. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.Deuteronomy 31:8 And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.

December Opportunities to Win Souls.

Every church service and event here at New Testament Baptist Church has for its main purpose the winning of souls for Christ. There are many activities in December that we can use for evangelism of friends, relatives, neighbors, and co-workers. Take the opportunity to invite others. Someone who might not come to a regular church service might come to a special dinner or event.

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving – No Church Service Tonight

November 22, 2017

There will be no church service tonight, as we had a special Thanksgiving service last night.

You may listen to last nights service at the following link:

Sermons

We read  Colossians 3:15-17 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

We read responsively Psalm 34. Preacher used Psalm 34 for the message. Before the preaching Pastor made some comments about that first Thanksgiving at Cape Cod. We had the following picture on the overhead:

Thanksgiving (2017)

Be ye thankful (Col 3:15)

Be thankful for that Moment of Obedience.  But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.  Rom. 6:17 

Be thankful for the Grace of God. I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ.        1 Cor. 1:4  

Be thankful for the Spiritual Victory of God. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.        1 Cor. 15:57 

Be thankful for the Generosity of God. Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.  2 Cor. 9:11  

Be thankful for the Favor of God. Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.    Psa. 30:4-5

Be thankful for the Peace of God. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful Col. 3:15  

Be thankful for the Church Leaders serving. Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.  Heb. 13:7

Thanksgiving Service

This Tuesday, November 21st at 7 PM

Join the Church Family

As conveyed by the Proclamation of our first President, Thanksgiving Day is uniquely an American holiday. Historically it was a time to give thanks to God for the bountiful harvest of crops. Traditionally it has been a day when families come together to show appreciation to the heavenly Father.

Here are two suggestions:

This Tuesday night, at 7:00 PM join your spiritual family as we lift up our voices and hearts in praise to our dear Lord and Savior. During this particular week, we purposely move the mid-week service from Wednesday to Tuesday to accommodate family plans of getting together. Statistics verify that more families in our United States join at home on Thanksgiving Day than on any other holiday, including Christmas!

This Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, join your physical family at home to enjoy a wonderful dinner and to thank the God who has wonderfully provided so many blessings of life and living.

Note: There will be no church services on Wednesday, November 22.

Happy Thanksgiving to You and Yours.

A well-deserved “Thank You” and heart-felt appreciation to Richard and Kelly Price and to the many “Church-folks” who assisted them and to those who contributed, making the Sunday School campaign a meaningful success. Last Sunday’s climatic Festival that included a host of volunteers was indeed a tremendous winner and a lot of enjoyment for both children and adults!

FALL FESTIVAL – Bulletin for November 12

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

November 12, 2017

UPDATE: THE BATTLE OVER RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, per an executive order issued by President Trump, recently released a memorandum of guidance interpreting religious liberty protections in federal law. There are a few note-worthy statements in the memorandum which could result in increased protections for ministries and Christian business-owners.

  • Freedom of religion extends not just to persons, but to organizations — including businesses.

Clarifications about the Johnson Amendment

  • Reinforcing the guidelines on Religious Expression in the Workplace
  • Expanding the right of religious organizations to employ only those who believe the same way

It is especially heartening to see a presidential administration take such a firm stance on recognizing both the importance of religious freedom in our nation and ensuring our religious rights remain protected. This is good news for every church, Christian school, or religious organization wanting to ensure all employees and staff share the ministry’s beliefs and views. This reinforces many existing protections, and there are a few noteworthy statements in the memorandum which could result in increased protections for ministries and Christian business-owners. While these guidelines will undoubtedly be challenged, they go on to list, explain, and reinforce almost every longstanding legal aspect of religious freedom in a refreshing hardline stance.

This is designed to ensure our religious rights remain protected in the present culture and onward. Please keep the presidential administration and our court system in prayer as these guidelines begin to be followed and tested. Feel free to contact our office for more information or for an official copy of this memorandum.

Honoring America’s Veterans

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

November 5, 2017

HONORING AMERICA’S VETERANS

Saturday, November 11, all Americans should honor those who gave a significant portion of their lives to serve in the armed services of the USA!  It’s never too late to render appropriate tribute (Rom 13:7). We must show our appreciation for those that served to secure for Americans the greatest nation in world history

President Ronald Reagan said, “Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But the U.S. ARMED FORCES don’t have that problem.” Without question, we should esteem very highly those in the military (past and present) that serve us, that serve our families, that serve our nation, that serve the oppressed millions throughout the world. Emphatically, our Armed Forces function as a deterrent in a world that has far too many oppressors and terrorists. Our strong military presence around the globe is absolutely appropriate because it has been the one essential means to secure a semblance of peace in a world of turmoil.

ONE DEFINITION OF A MILITARY VETERAN

A veteran – whether active duty past or present, retired, national guard, or reserve – is someone who, at one point in his / her life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The People of the United States of Americafor an amountup to and including my life.”

Sadly, in these thankless days, far too many American citizens do not understand this kind of devotion to duty, nor would they commit themselves to such sacrifice.

PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. The Lord Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.

One died for your soul! The other died for your freedom!

USA – 2017

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

October 29, 2017

USA – 2017

Most people, even the unsaved, tolerate

Bible preaching and teaching as long as it’s

in general terms and is without personal application.

As Bible-Believing Americans, please consider the following. In contrast to days-gone-by, Churches in America now have their doors open for an hour or so on Sunday morning and doors closed on Sunday night and Wednesday night.  A minority of American Churches have open doors to preach and teach the inspired, preserved Bible at least four times a week, Sundays and Wednesdays.

I hear concerned folks lament, “What’s gone wrong with our nation?”  The answer is obvious: the vast majority of professing Christians no longer make a priority of “hearing(Rom. 10:17) the unadulterated Word of God. The Bible was taken out of public education decades ago. However, far worse is the Bible taken out of Churches by the diminished opportunities to hear its precepts expounded. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears (2 Tim. 4:3). God ordained local New Testament Churches to be citadels of Truth and Righteousness (1Tim. 3:15).  With the weekly reduction of Bible instruction across America, it is as if history is repeating itself.  “… because the word of the LORD was precious [scarce] in those days … truth is fallen in the street … every man did that which was right in his own eyes (1Samuel 3:1; Isaiah 59:14; Judges 17:6).

In the light of the Lord’s return and the reduction of Church attenders (Heb. 10:25), Bible-Believers (especially those having children) have an imperative to avail themselves to every opportunity to hear Bible teaching and preaching.                                       – Pastor

Continue in My Word

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

October 22, 2017

Continue in My Word

If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed.

 (John 8:31)

As a Church family, we come together four services weekly with the expressed purpose of continuing in His Word. Our Lord declared that to be faithful in the furtherance of His Word would evidence that we are His disciples.

I’ve always promised a message from God’s Word each time we assemble. Preaching and teaching for over 58 years at New Testament Baptist Church, I’ve used three basic rules of Bible interpretation: 1) Find a fact, then believe it; 2) Find a promise, then claim it; 3) Find a command, then obey it. In addition, I’ve majored on three basic messages: 1) “Get saved;” 2) “Live like you are saved;” 3) “Get someone else saved.”

Sadly however, the Bible predicts Church attendance will diminish in the last days as the return of Christ draws near. Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching (Heb. 10:25). It is my earnest prayer that none of the members of our assembly will be a party to fulfillment of this prophesy.

The Lord’s exhortation should be seriously considered:

If ye continue in my word,

then are ye my disciples indeed.

Pastor’s Notes – Bulletin for October 15

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

October 15, 2017

Please Welcome Today

Dean and Brenda Hendrix

           Our very own Dean Hendrix will be teaching the Adult Bible Class and preaching the main morning service. Dean and his beloved wife, Brenda, presently serve as Church planters with a special emphasis on Spanish-speaking people in Thornton, Colorado … a part of metropolitan Denver. Prior to this ministry, in 1987, they answered God’s missionary call to Ponce, Puerto Rico where they faithfully served as Church planters until 2003. Two Churches were planted out of their main Church, and both of these Churches have Puerto Rican pastors. The Hendrix family moved to Denver, Colorado to begin a Church planting ministry among the Spanish speaking people. For the first three years, they worked through Tri-City Baptist Church in Westminster and Faith Baptist Church in Longmont. Presently, their ministry continues as the Iglesia Bautista de Tri-City, having two services each Lord’s Day, a Wednesday evening service and a Bible study on Friday nights.

          What a wonderful privilege our sovereign God has given us, to prayerfully and financially invest in the life-ministry of the Dean and Brenda Hendrix!

Revival: Participation … Most Beneficial!

Last week on “this sacred ground,” ten souls were saved! In addition, our Church families and individuals – faithful in attendance and prayerfully involved – were edified and enlightened by the Bible teaching and Gospel preaching of Ron Comfort!

          Since the 1960’s, Dr. Comfort has been America’s foremost local Church evangelist and revivalist. In the 58 years of our Church’s existence, he and his dear wife, Joyce, have successfully ministered to us during 23 revival meetings. Surely, they will share in the heavenly rewards of the totality of the Lord’s accomplished work on (again) – “this sacred ground.”

          Our Church family has been allowed by God to gain extreme benefits by our participation in a spiritual awakening. Because of work, illness, unforeseen circumstances, I’m understanding of Church family members providentially hindered from attending all services. However, after nearly six decades of Church activities, I do not understand – frankly I’m amazed – that any of God’s “born-agains,” knowing our Lord and surely desiring His benefits / blessing, do not have a deep conviction that all biblical preaching is an urgent priority (Rom 10:17).

          I am your Pastor, and you’ve heard me often declare, “I want God’s very BEST for you and yours.” If you missed the God-given opportunities of last week, recognize that God’s “Best” last week is lost forever for you and, if you’re a parent, for your children. Make a promise today to your God, that from this day forth you will never miss another opportunity to hear God’s Word preached whether weekly Church services or special occasion meetings!

In these last days … REVIVAL – A SPIRITUAL PRIORITY!

Will you PROMISE our LORD that your ATTENDANCE

in each REVIVAL service will be your daily PRIORITY this week?

Will you PLEAD with our LORD for an old-fashion

fire-from-Heaven, sin-convicting, life-transforming,

soul-saving REVIVAL?

FALL REVIVAL … A SPIRITUAL URGENCY

Inviting Visitors to The Services

This Afternoon: Call or Text Your Friends and Family

Revival gives people a reason to visit our Church. It may be a desire to know God, a need for spiritual help, a yearning to hear the Bible preached as it should.  We try to have activities, events, programs that appeal to the unsaved / unchurched to interest them enough to visit.

Invite everybody, wherever you go. During this week, carry revival notices to invite people at the restaurant, people in line at the bank, people behind the counter at the grocery store, your doctor, etc. Consider everyone to be a prospect for next week’s special services.

Use the telephone (voice or text). You can get promises while knocking on doors or visiting prospects during regular soul winning times.  However, you will likely get more promises by using the telephone than to drive to a house or to visit a neighbor. I believe in all these methods to reach others, but it may be much more efficient for you to dial telephone numbers of people you know. Use your phone to text revival information.

Remember, you are not responsible for the “results.” But, you are fulfilling the Great Commission (Matt 28) and the urgency of these last days when every person must hear Bible preaching.

Never give up on anyone who needs the Word of God.

Never give anyone an easy way to say “No.”

Thursdays from 9:30 to 11:00 AM
