REVIVAL … A SPIRITUAL PRIORITY

Will each of you PRAY to our Heavenly Father that He will give us four spirit-fill days to change our lives and the lives of others foreverWill each of you PROMISE the Lord that your attendance in every Revival service will be a daily priority next week?  (It’s only a four-day meeting … your “schedule” can handle that.)

WE MUST ASK GOD FOR …

An Old – Fashioned – Fire from Heaven

Sin Convicting – Life Transforming

Soul-Saving REVIVAL

 

FALL REVIVAL … A SPIRITUAL URGENCY

Inviting Visitors To The Services

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.”

No Apology For Being A Baptist

Dr. J. C. Joiner

No Apology For Being A Baptist

Baptist people have been the most principled people in all of history. We are Baptists without apology and are gratified that our heritage has made an incredible impact on this world and particularly on our nation for the cause of Christ.

Down through the centuries Baptists, have stood firm for the free exercise of a person’s will and against oppression (religious or political). The English historian, Skeats, wrote, “It is the singular and distinguished honor of the Baptists to have repudiated from their earliest history all coercive power of the consciences and actions of men with reference to religion. They were the proto-evangelists of the voluntary principle.” The Methodist historian, John Clark Ridpath, wrote: “I should not readily admit that there was a Baptist Church as far back as 100 A.D., although without a doubt there were Baptist Churches then, as all Christians were then Baptists.”

In colonial America Baptists were intensely independent. In 1768 five Baptist men were arrested, and in the words of the Spotsylvania County, Virginia prosecutor: “They cannot meet a man upon the road, but they must ram a text of Scripture down his throat.” (More Baptists like them are needed in 2017) They were held in the Fredericksburg jail forty-three days for their offense of preaching without a license.

However, the Virginia Baptists impacted Thomas Jefferson and his writings about independence and the formatting of the Constitution. Jefferson was familiar with a Baptist Church near his Monticello home and used their beliefs and practices as a model for individual freedom. From Belcher’s Religious Denominations of the United States (page 184): Jefferson said that he considered Baptist Church government the only form of pure democracy which existed in the world, and had concluded that it would be the best plan of government for the American colonies. This was eight or ten years before the American Revolution.”

Sadly, in these last days, many professing to be Baptist lack strong Bible convictions and are not separatists. Tragically others have gone so far as to remove the name “Baptist” from their churches (and well they should). As separatist, New Testament Baptists, we thank the Lord for America’s freedoms as we reflect on the impressive history of our Baptist forefathers.

GOD’S WORD ALWAYS EXPOUNDED IN THIS PLACE

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

September 17, 2017

GOD’S WORD ALWAYS EXPOUNDED IN THIS PLACE

EACH SERVICE IS A PRIORITY FOR YOU & YOURS

Of the 3,193 prophecies in the Old Testament, 703 of them deal with Christ. One out of every four prophesies in the Old Testament points to Christ. The purpose of the Bible is to relate to mankind what was necessary to restore man’s relationship with the Creator! And, what is this necessary element? Jesus Christ … God’s promise of a Saviour!  From Genesis to Revelation, the central message of the Bible does not change; it is the promise and fulfillment of Christ. Therefore, the key to understanding Scripture, as God intended, is to realize His common theme, which is Jesus Christ and to hear, as often as possible, truth concerning Him. And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, Jesus expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself (Luke24:27). NTBC as a sacred PLACE where Scripture is expounded. It is the house of God, which is the Church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth (1 Tim. 3:15).  The Word of God has been expounded, without compromise, from this “pulpit” for almost 60 years, and we trust will be so preached until the Rapture!

… continue in My Word (John 8:31)

 

==============================================

 

“I’ll Come to Church When I Get Straightened Out”

A man had recently moved into a certain community, and the preacher visited him, inviting him and his family to church. He said, “I’m very busy right now, but as soon as I get straightened out, I’m coming to your church.”  When he didn’t show up, he received another visit from some of the church members. He told them the same thing he told the preacher, “I’m very busy right now, but as soon as I get straightened out, I’m coming to your church.”

It wasn’t long till the man died! At the Church where his funeral was conducted, the preacher was heard to say: “I’ll have to say this for him; he is a man of his word. He told us he’d come to our church as soon as he got straightened out … and he did.”

But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak

they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment [Matt 12:36]

Honoring Those Who Work in The Church

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Teachers and Workers Appreciation Banquet

Thursday, September 14, at 6:00 PM

Honoring Those Who Work in The Church

Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker,

Ask me of things to come concerning my sons,

and concerning the work of my hands command ye me (Isa 45:11).

.

In the context of His power, this verse is an encouragement to God’s people to be exactly what they ought to be. Born again by the Holy Spirit, we are the work of [His] hands. Whereas Adam and Eve were His direct physical creation, we are God’s procreative work in this Church age.

We are dependent upon the creative power of God when we are in trials and are utterly incapable of helping ourselves. His work in our lives is not only for His own glory, but for our comfort in life’s struggles and for our effectiveness to serve as He has commanded.

 O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand (Isa. 64:8). He declared it, we are the clay, He’s the potter. The metaphor of being in His hands means that everything in our lives is produced by the Lord. As formless clay is molded by the potter at his wheel, we are to be made in the image He desires for us.

Here’s the principle: we are to yield completely to His perfect will (Rom 12:1-2).  We are to submit in obedience to His Word for His determination. Thus, being formed by God, the Creator of the universe, we are dependent on Him to make us what He would have us to be. We are the work of God’s hand, a statement acknowledging His sovereignty. This expresses the feeling which we have when under conviction of sin and when exposed to divine displeasure for transgressions. Then as revealed in His Word, we plead the mercy and grace of God to make us and to mold us to be the persons He wants us to be!

The ultimate purpose of each member of NTBC is to be a work of God’s hand … molded by the Master Potter. Then, as a work of God’s hand, be involved in some meaningful ministry that results in the unsaved becoming born-again and His people being edified, thus becoming the work of God’s hand.

Thursday’s banquet honors each – a work of God’s hand –

presently involved in Church ministries.

This Banquet is for all teachers, deacons / trustees, ushers, van ministry, all music, Sunday afternoon rehab ministries, AWANA, RU. and helpers in ministries of our Church.  Attention: to attend you must fill out the sign-up sheet.

(All attending must sign up. Child care provided only for those who sign up)

A Reminder That We Are Laborers For God

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

September 3, 2017

Labor Day, USA – 2017

A Reminder That We Are Laborers For God!

America has the highest standard of living of any nation in the history of the world! There are many factors making that possible. One constituent will be recognized tomorrow on Labor Day, a legal holiday set aside to honor America’s working people. The bringing together of the laboring class for improving workmen’s economic status and working conditions through collective bargaining with employers, has been rewarded in excessive prosperity for all Americans, essentially producing a vibrant middleclass.

Respectfully, both God the Father and God the Son are “a work-force.”
Jesus declared that my Father worketh hitherto, and I work … my meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work (John 4:34; 5:17). Jesus has since gone to glory, and has called every born again, Bible believer into His “work-force” to continue His labor of love until He returns. Our Lord offers the high­est type employment, the topmost wages, the finest working conditions, and a re­tirement plan that is simply out of this world!

The very next event on God’s prophetic agenda is the Rapture of New Testament saints (1 Th. 4:13-18). Immediately following the Rapture, all born-agains will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ where the work of each shall be judged. Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is (1 Cor. 3:13). Each believer will be evaluated in a review of service as a Christian. The purpose for such accountability is the gaining or losing of rewards. There are numerous NT verses that prophesy rewards based on works / merit: Mt. 5:12, Mk. 9:41, Lk 6:23, 35; 14:14, John 4:36, Rom. 14:10, 1 Cor. 3:8, 13-15; 9:17,25, 2 Cor. 5:10, Eph. 6:8, 1 Tim. 6:19, 2 Tim. 4:8, James 1:12; 3:1, 1 Pet. 1:7, 4:17; 5:4, 1 John 4:17, 2 John 8, Rev. 2:10, 3:5, 11; 22:12.

Each Christian who has labored faithfully for the Lord enjoys presently a rewarding life… yet, a far richer compensation in the afterlife!  “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him (1 Cor. 2:9). For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister (Heb. 6:10).

Two Considerations:

Are you working in the Lord’s “Labor Union”?

If not, you have the gift of salvation … sadly, not His rewards!

AWANA Club Meeting Wednesdays

GOD’S WILL: YOUR SANCTIFICATION – Prayer

 

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

August 27, 2017

GOD’S WILL: YOUR SANCTIFICATION – PRAYER

1 Thessalonians 4:3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, …

What does sanctification mean? Sanctification primarily has to do with our maturity in Christ where we have victory over sin and are becoming more like Christ as we walk with Him. He is making us into the Ambassadors for Christ He wants us to be. 2 Cor. 5:18.

What can I do to be growing in sanctification and have more victory over sin?

Review from last week:

  1. The Holy Spirit’s primary means of our growth in holiness is the Truth of God – The Word of God. We must read, study and meditate on the Word. John 17:17
  2. The Holy Spirit uses our evangelists, pastors and teachers to help us mature.
    • Romans 10:17; Eph. 4:11-13
    • It is good to take notes on the messages.
  3. Confess sin. Psalm 51:2-3; 1 John 1:9
  4. Work for God. Our work and service will be both a result of sanctification and a means of further sanctification. When we work for God we will see God working in and through us.
    • 1 Corinthians 3:9; Romans 12:6-9
  5. We need the peace of God. As we grow in Christ we must see adversity as opportunity. Every person faces adversity. Adversity can bring out the best or the worst in us. As we grow in the grace and in the knowledge of Christ we will be able to respond in a godly manner to adversity. This proper response to adversity will cause us to mature even more as a Christian.
    • 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Philippians 4:7; Colossians 3:15

———-

  1. We must develop our prayer life. Matthew 6:9-13; Psalm 139:23-24
  • Matthew 6:9-13 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
  • Our prayer should be plain, clear and simple, not full of vain repetitions.
  • We pray to God, our Father. We must have a relationship and fellowship with God.
  • We honor God’s holiness. We lift up His name.
  • We seek God’s glory. We desire His will and the increase of His kingdom.
  • We trust God’s daily care: food, housing, clothing, etc.
  • We confess sin, and ask forgiveness, as well as forgive others.
  • We crave deliverance from evil. We desire to keep away from sin and its consequences. We do not seek temptations. We desire peace.

GOD’S WILL: YOUR SANCTIFICATION – Part 2

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

August 20, 2017

GOD’S WILL: YOUR SANCTIFICATION

1 Thessalonians 4:3 For this is the will of God,

even your sanctification, …

What does sanctification mean? Sanctification primarily has to do with our maturity in Christ where we have victory over sin and are becoming more like Christ as we walk with Him. He is making us into the Ambassadors for Christ He wants us to be. 2 Cor. 5:18.

What can I do to be growing in sanctification and have more victory over sin?

Review from last week:

  1. The Holy Spirit’s primary means of our growth in holiness is the Truth of God – The Word of God. We must read, study and meditate on the Word. John 17:17
  2. The Holy Spirit uses our evangelists, pastors and teachers to help us mature.
    • Romans 10:17; Eph. 4:11-13

_________

  1. As we hear the Word of God we must apply it to our own lives and obey God. We need to be sensitive to the conviction of the Holy Spirit and confess sin.
    • Psalm 51:2-3 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
  2. As we are being sanctified we will desire to work for God. Our work and service will be both a result of sanctification and a means of further sanctification. When we work for God we will see God working in and through us. We will be manifesting both the fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit. You will be greatly blessed as you serve others in the church and reach out to our community to bring in the lost.
    • 1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
    • Romans 12:6-9 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
  3. We need the peace of God. As we grow in Christ we must see adversity as opportunity. Every person faces adversity. Adversity can bring out the best or the worst in us. As we grow in the grace and in the knowledge of Christ we will be able to respond in a godly manner to adversity. This proper response to adversity will cause us to mature even more as a Christian.
    • 1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    • Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
    • Colossians 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

GOD’S WILL: YOUR SANCTIFICATION

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

August 13, 2017

GOD’S WILL: YOUR SANCTIFICATION

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence [evil lusts], even as the Gentiles which know not God:

What does sanctification mean? According to the 1828 Webster’s dictionary it means, The act of making holy. In an evangelical sense, the act of God’s grace by which the affections of men are purified or alienated from sin and the world, and exalted to a supreme love to God.

What can I do to be growing in sanctification and have more victory over sin? God’s Word has much to say about this. We live in an “I want it, and I want it now” age. However, if you desire to grow in sanctification you must invest time in the following:

  1. The Holy Spirit’s primary means of our growth in holiness is the Truth of God – The Word of God. We must read, study and meditate on the Word.
    1. John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
    2. 2 Peter 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
    3. Psalm 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
    4. Psalm 119:93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.
    5. 2 Peter 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
  2. The Holy Spirit uses our evangelists, pastors and teachers to help us mature.
    1. Ephesians 4:11-16  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
    2. Romans 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (To be continued)

Pastor’s Notes – Bulletin for August 6

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

August 6, 2017

Legalism? or True Holiness?

A legalist is the term frequently used by moderates and progressives to describe a separatist Baptist who is zealous for pure Bible doctrines and desire to maintain holy standards of living in this perverse generation. The popular “free-thinking” attitude of neo-evangelicals was expressed at a “Christian” rock concert called Greenbelt ‘83: “We don’t believe in a fundamentalist approach. We don’t set ground rules. Our teaching is non-directive. We want people to make their own choices.”  One who believes in rules and direction and the teaching of doctrine is called a Pharisee. Thus, “Pharisee” and “legalist” have been the unscriptural mind-set labels given to genuine Bible believers.

A correction is appropriate. The Pharisee’s error was not his love for the truth and his zeal for Bible righteousness. The Pharisee did not love the truth; he loved his tradition [Matt. 15:1-9].  If the Pharisee had loved the truth, he would have loved Jesus Christ [John 8:47]. The Pharisee did not love Bible righteousness; he loved his self-righteousness [Luke 18:9-14]. The Pharisee did not have a zeal for God; he had a zeal for his own false religion [Matt. 23:15]. 

To call a fundamental Bible believer who is saved by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, who loves the Word of God, who wants to obey the Lord in his daily walk, a “Pharisee,” or a ‘legalist” is evil and untrue slander!

Biblical grace teaches men to “deny ungodliness and worldly lusts.”

Contrast this culture’s hatred of biblical absolutes and separation with what the Bible declares is “true holiness.”  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men. Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world. Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee [Titus 2:11-15]. After all, our Lord linked “love” with rules keeping … If ye love me, keep my commandments [John 14:15].

Grace does not grant liberty or license to do as we please in fleshly pursuits. Biblical grace teaches men to “deny ungodliness and worldly lusts.” Any definition of grace which does not produce separation from moral license and does not insist on the obligation to faithful service, is unscriptural.

Pastor’s Notes – Bulletin for July 30

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

July 30, 2017

An Ordination Service at 6:00 PM

Ryan Lasater, a recent graduate of Heartland Baptist Bible College, has been called to pastor the Victory Baptist Church in Vail. We are his sending Church, and along with Victory, are requesting his public ordination.

Ordination refers generally to the selection and consecration of spiritual leaders (Mk. 3:14; Jn. 15:16; Acts 1:22; 14:23; 1 Tim. 2:7; Tit. 1:5). Ordination by New Testament churches was accomplished with the laying on of hands (Acts 13:1-3). A church which follows the Word of God has God’s blessing. When qualified men are ordained in a church, the salvation of eternal souls and the edification of God’s people are the intend results.

Just what is an Ordination?

  • Ordination is the recognition of a divine call and a setting apart for special service. God only calls a man into His service; however, the church’s part is to recognize the man God has called. Paul and Barnabas were set apart for the special work to which God had called them … and when they [the local church at Antioch] fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away (Acts 13:3).
  • Ordination is a pledge of support and fellowship. When a man is ordained, those taking part are saying in effect, “We support you; we stand behind you in this work for which God has called you” … and being brought on their way by the church (Acts 15:3).
  • Ordination is a commitment of those called of God to have the enabling grace of God. They had been recommended to the grace of God for the work which they fulfilled … being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God (Acts 14:26; 15:40).

The Church family is now prayerfully asked to join together tonight as Ryan is formally “set apart” for the Gospel ministry.  Ryan and Violet would be so honored to have each of you in the evening service, thereby showing, with your presence, your whole-hearted approval of God calling them into His full-time service.

All are invited to a Reception following the service.

All our senses can be involved in worship!

Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

Philippians 4:18b the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

Hebrews 4:15 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. Psalm 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Revelation 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. Psalm 143:8 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
