Word for the Week

Word for the Week

From Stan our Chaplain

11/28/2021

Are you ready for the rapture of Christ's church

Look at today it is just like in Noah’s day the people were clueless as to what was going to happen. It is the same today people going about their daily lives clueless. The bible says there will be wars and rumors of wars , people will be lovers of themselves not of God. And the list goes on. We live in a lost world now for most people. We as Christians should be looking up for our redemption. When Father God tells His son Jesus it is time then it is time. Only the Father knows when.
 
Let us here in our coffee shop be ready to go home to be with Jesus for ever and ever.
God bless you all Stan N9RFO.

The Hidden Life, By Oswald Chambers My Utmost for His Highest

Colossians 3:3 Your life is hidden with Christ in God

The Spirit of God testifies to and confirms the simple , but almighty , security of the life that is hidden with Christ in God. We talk as if living a sanctified life were the most uncertain and insecure thing we could do. Yet it is the most secure thing we could do. Yet is the most secure thing possible , because it has Almighty God in and behind it. The most dangerous and unsure thing is to try to live without God.
 
Words from Stan: We as Christians should do nothing without asking God  how He wants us to do it. If we follow Him it will always be right. Just listen for His small still and powerful voice.
 
God bless you all here in our coffee shop – Stan N9RFO

The great love of Christ Jesus

Do we as Christians think about Christ’s great love for us?  We should every day when we wake up, thanking Him for another day here on earth and His great love that He showed us by giving His life on the cross for us. He is our everything, and without Him, our lives can be very dull.  But, with Him He brings us our joy as we walk this life.

Thank You Jesus.

God bless you all here in our coffee shop – Stan N9RFO

Word for the Week - My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers

The evidence of the new birth. In John 10:3 He calls me by name.

It is possible to know all about doctrine and still not know Jesus? A person’s soul is in grave danger when the knowledge of doctrine surpasses Jesus, avoiding  intimate touch with Him. Do I have a personal history with Jesus Christ? The one
true sign of discipleship is intimate oneness with Him – a knowledge of Jesus that nothing can shake.
 
Words from Stan: Do we here in our Coffee Shop have a personal relationship with
Him? If you do not let me tell you about our wonderful Lord Jesus. Just ask.
 
God Bless you all – Stan N9RFO

11/03/2021

Give praise to the Lord

Taken from the book, Mornings with Jesus.
 
1st. chronicles 16: 8-9  Give praise to the Lord , proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done. Sing to Him , sing praise to Him; tell of all His wonderful acts. Remember the wonders He has done , His miracles , and the judgments He pronounced.
 
Words from Stan:  We should always remember what the Lord has done for us in our lives.
The most important thing is that while we were still sinners He died for us.
 
God bless you all Stan N9RFO.  

10/26/2021

Keeping His Name Holy

The most important thing we should do as Christians is to keep God’s name Holy. We want people to see us as different than most of the world who do not care about the Lord or how to speak about him.
 
People need to see us praise Him, not blaspheme His name. In the Lord’s prayer at the start it says Our Father Hallowed
be Your name. Hallowed means Holy, and we should keep it that way.
 
Remember some day if we are Christians we will be with Him forever. Let’s show Him our Love.
 
God bless you all here in our coffee shop. Stan N9RFO.

My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers

Does He know me. John 10:3 He calls me by name.

 
It is possible to know all about doctrine and still not know Jesus?  A person’s soul is in grave danger when the knowledge of doctrine surpasses Jesus, avoiding intimate touch with Him.  Do I have a personal history with Jesus Christ?  The one true sign of discipleship is intimate oneness with Him, a knowledge of Jesus that nothing can shake.
 
Words from Stan: Do you know Him personally; because if you do not, you will never enter into heaven some day.
 
God bless you all Stan N9RFO.

10/11/2021

Psalm 32

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity.  In Psalm 32:1
it tells us how blessed we are as Christians to be forgiven by Christ Jesus for all
our sins.  Past,  present, and future.  We say thank You Jesus for dying in our
place on the cross.  As Christians lets keep looking up, for our redemption is near.
 
God bless you all here in our coffee shop from Stan N9RFO.

10/03/2021

The Life of Jesus

We will be studying about the life of Jesus next Wednesday. Let’s look at it when Jesus walked the earth. He was totally God and totally man. He experienced life in the human world. What a powerful Lord to do this for us. Not only that He taught the Word but also He went to the cross to die in our place. Do you have a personal relationship with him as you walk this earth?
 
Words from Stan:  Let’s look at our lives. Are you saved by Christ and ready to spend
your life some day with Him? I hope you are.
 
God bless you all.  Stan N9RFO

The Destitution of Service - by Oswald Chambers - My Utmost for His Highest

Corinthians 12:15   Though the more abundantly I love you, the less I am loved.
 
Jesus Christ’s idea is that we serve Him by being the servants of others. The real test of a saint is not one’s willingness to preach the gospel, but one’s willingness to do something like washing the disciple’s feet – that is, being willing to do those things that seem unimportant in human estimation but count as everything to God.
 
Words from Stan: Sometimes the little simple tasks we do for Jesus can be the very best to him. Whatever you do for Christ do your very best even the small things that seem to be not important.
 
May our Lord Jesus bless you all here in our coffee shop. Stan N9RFO.

9/19/2021

Word for the Week - Are You Ready

Are you Ready.to meet Jesus in the air.
1st Thessalonians 4:16
 
All prophecy for the Rapture of the church is complete.  If you are a Christian you will be caught up to meet Jesus in the air with all who have died in Christ.  1st Thessalonians 4:16 says, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel and with the trumpet of God.  And the dead in Christ will rise first.  Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up.”  What a GREAT DAY this will be.  Are you ready?  Do you know without a doubt you are saved?   Always be ready.  Romans 10:9 and John 3:16 tells you how.  Get right with Him and live forever.
 
God bless you all here in our coffee shop.  May God be with you all.   Stan N9RFO.

9/13/2021

Word for the Week - Prayer

Prayer is a powerful tool we have as Christians
 

It allows us to connect with God shearing with Him our needs. Prayer is God’s power being released
through faith. It is a personal conversation with Him. How great is it that He loves us that much.
How much did he love us He died in our place for each of us. Thank You Jesus.

God bless you all here in our coffee shop Stan N9RFO

9/4/2021

Word for the Week - By Oswald Chambers - My Utmost for His Highest

His Birth and Our New Birth
 
Isaiah 7:14 Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.
 
Jesus Christ was born into this world, not from it. He did not emerge out of history; He came into history from the outside.
His life is the highest and the holiest entering through the most humble of doors. Just as our Lord came into human history from outside it. He must also come into me from outside. The evidence of the new birth is that I yield myself so completely to God that ” Christ is formed” in me.
 
Words from Stan: Looking at ourselves Christ is formed in us when we are born again. The bible says in John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten Son that who so ever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
 
God bless you all here in our coffee shop. Stan N9RFO.

8/29/2021

Word for the Week - Continuous Conversion

Matthew 18:3
Unless you are converted and become as little children. We should continue to turn to God as little children , being
continuously converted every day of our lives . His sovereignty brings us into new situations  , we should immediately make sure that our natural life submits to the spiritual , obeying the orders of the Spirit of God.
 
God bless you all here in our coffee shop Stan.
 

8/15/2021

Word for the Week - The Purpose of Prayer

Luke 11:1  Lord teach us to pray.
To say that prayer changes things is not as close to the truth as saying  , Prayer changes me  , and then I change things. God has established things so that prayer, on the basis of redemption changes the way a person looks at things. Prayer is not a matter of changing things but one of working miracles in a person’s inner nature.
 
Let us here in our coffee shop be known as a house of prayer. I think we are just that.
 
Thanks to all and God Bless.
Stan

8/9/2021

Word for the Week - By Oswald Chambers - My Utmost for His Highest

Does He know me?  John 10:3 says He calls me by name.
 
It is possible to know all about doctrine and still not know Jesus. A person’s soul is in grave danger when the knowledge of
doctrine surpasses Jesus, avoiding intimate touch with Him.
 
Do I have a personal history with Jesus Christ? The one true sign of discipleship is intimate oneness with Him – a knowledge of Jesus that nothing can shake.
 
Words from Stan: Jesus calls us by name, that is how much He loves us. How is our Christian walk with Him? Jesus wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him because we are his kids as Christians.
 
God bless you all here in our coffee shop – Stan N9RFO.

The Power of Prayer

Prayer is God’s power being released through faith. The bible says in Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for , 
the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the words were framed by the word of God , so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
 
Words from Stan: How strong is our faith. A strong faith means a powerful prayer life. Lets be the Christian’s God wants us to be
men , and women of faith.
 
God bless you all here in Our Coffee Shop – Stan N9FRO.

7/26/2021

How To Pray

Jesus tell us how to pray in Matthew Chapter 6 beginning at verse 5:  And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly I say to you, they have their reward. But when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut the door. Pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. He says pray in this manner, therefore pray The Lord’s Prayer.
 
Word from Stan:  In this verse Jesus tells us how to pray and what not to do. He also finishes with the Lord’s Prayer – Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your name. Hallowed means Holy.
 
God bless you all here in Our Coffee Shop – Stan N9FRO.

His Birth and Our New Birth - My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers

Isaiah  7:14  Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.
 
Jesus Christ was born into this world, not from it. He did not emerge out of history. He came into history from the outside.
His life is the highest and holiest entering through the most humble of doors. 
 
Just as our Lord came into human history from outside it, He must also come into me from outside. The evidence of the new birth is that I yield myself so completely to God that “Christ is formed” in me.
 
Words from Stan: Have you been reborn in the new life of Jesus Christ? Do you have a personal relationship with Him? If you do some day you will stand before Him sinless because of His death on the cross. Thank You Jesus.
 
May the Lord bless you all Stan N9RFO.

7/14/2021

Faith

The bible says in Hebrews 11: 1-4 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the words were framed by the Word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. By faith Able offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and through it he being dead still speaks.”
 
Words from Stan:  What kind of faith do we each have in our Christian walk with God? We must keep the faith and not doubt. There is nothing too hard or impossible for Jesus Christ to do. Let’s step out and do His work letting Him guide us and keeping the faith.
 
God bless you all here in Our Coffee Shop.

L E F T B E H I N D

Our Lord Jesus is coming  very soon and you do not want to be left behind here on earth during that 7 years of God’s wrath. During that time people will cry out for death but it will not come. Many people will die, and the only way to be saved by Christ is death, even your head cut off. Read Revelation 16, 20, and 21. When the rapture of Christ church comes all children will be taken and all people whose names are written in the book of life. Also the Holy Spirit will be gone. If your name is not written in the book of life  you will go to hell.
 
Our God is a God of great love and he is waiting for you to repent of your sins before him. Now is the time because you could die at any time. Romans 10:9 says That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead you will be saved. The bible also says believe on Jesus name and you will be saved.
 
Words from Stan: If you are saved what Jesus has for us is beyond what we can perceive. Jesus said when He rose into heaven I go to prepare a place for you. He loves us so much He went to the cross to die in our place. Thank You Jesus.

Colossians 3:3 - Your life is hidden with Christ in God.

My Utmost for His Highest – By Oswald Chambers
 
The Spirit of God testifies to and confirms the simple, but almighty , security of life that is hidden with Christ in God. We walk as if living a sanctified life were the most uncertain and insecure thing we could do. Yet it is the most secure thing possible, because it has Almighty God in and behind it. The most dangerous and unsure thing is to try to live without God.
 
Words from Stan: What would we do or be without God. Are lives would be worthless without Him. The Holy Spirit guides us as we walk through this life in the right direction if we as Christians will listen to what He says.
 
God bless you all here in our coffee shop.

The greatest act of faith is when man decides he is not God.

Taken from God’s Little Instruction Book II 
 
Psalm 100:3 – Know ye that the Lord He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, 
and the sheep of His pasture.
 
Words from Stan: Happy Father’s Day to all of you here in our coffee shop. Let’s remember who our true father is – the one who made us.
 
Thank You Father God, Jesus Your Son who died for us, and the Holy Spirit who guides us and lives inside of us. God bless you all Stan – N9RFO.

The Drawing of the Father

Taken from My Utmost for His Highest – by Oswald Chambers
 
John 6:44  No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him.
 
Everyone has been created with the ability to reach out beyond his own. But it is God who draws me, and my relationship to Him in the first place. I come into the relationship through the miracle of God and through my own will to believe. Then I begin to get an intelligent appreciation and understanding of the wonder of the transformation in my life.
 
Words from Stan: What a wonderful thing to love God and for Him to love us back. Some day we as Christians will stand before Him, what a wonderful and great day that will be.
 
God bless you all – Chaplain Stan N9RFO.

The personal relationship with Jesus our Lord.

Did you know that without a personal relationship with Jesus Christ you cannot enter heaven. Without that you do not have the 
Holy Spirit living inside you. How do we get there it is not a hard thing. Read Romans 10:9 where it says that if you 
confess the Lord Jesus with your mouth and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead you will be saved.
John 3:16 says For God so loved the world ,  that He gave us his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should 
not perish , but have everlasting life. Other scripture says believe on Jesus name and you will be saved.
 
God does make it hard to know Him just love Him and believe that He died for you on that cross with your whole heart without
a doubt and you will be His child.
 
God bless you all in our coffee shop Chaplain Stan N9RFO.

Is Your Ability To See God Blinded?

Taken from My Utmost for His Highest.  By Oswald Chambers.
 
Isaiah  40:26
 
The real test of spiritual focus is being able to bring your mind and thoughts under control. Is your mind focused on the face of an idol? Is it your work? If so, then your ability to see God is blinded. You will be powerless when faced with difficulties and will be forced to endure in darkness. If your power to see has been blinded, do not look back on your own experiences, but look to God. It is God you need. 
 
Words from Stan: I know in my life I have done this. I do have idols. Let’s look ahead to Jesus and follow him.
 
God bless you all Stan N9RFO.

5/23/2021

Why it is important to know God's Holy Bible.

As you walk as a Christian always be ready to give an answer. I have been told before teaching God’s word that it is a fairy tale.
Then i can say lets look in 2 Timothy 3:16 where it says.  All scripture is given by inspiration of God  , and it is profitable for 
doctrine  , for instruction in rightness: That the man of God  may be perfect  , thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
 
Lets look at another you might be asked how do you get saved by God. Send them to Romans 10:9 where it says That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus , and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead thou shalt be saved.
You can send them also to John 3:16 . We are saved by God’s grace not works lets remember that.
When we as Christian’s know the bible well it becomes our new way of life leading us to God’s purpose for us here on earth.
We all want to here those words some day by Jesus well done good and faithful servant.
 
God bless you all here in our coffee shop Stan N9RFO.

Taken from My Utmost for His Highest (by Oswald Chambers) Will You Lay Down Your LIfe?

Found in John 15: 13,15  Greater love has no one than this , than to lay
down one’s life for his friends …I have called you friends.
 
Jesus does not ask me to die for Him but to lay down my life for Him. It is much easer to die than to lay down your life day in and day out with the sense of the high calling of God. For thirty – three years Jesus laid down His life to do the will of His Father.
 
If I am a friend of Jesus, I must deliberately and carefully lay down my life for Him.
 
Words from Stan: How are we doing are we laying our lives down here on earth for Jesus. I think part of laying down our lives for Him is serving Him and listening to that still small voice of God directing us where to go and what to do. Remember the bible says obedience is better than sacrifice. We must be obedient to Him to please Him.
 
God bless each of you here in our coffee shop.  Stan N9RFO.

5/09/2021

Prayer

Looking at prayer. Prayer is God’s power being released through faith. It is also a personal conversation with God. We see the evidence of answered prayer here in our coffee shop. Psalm 66:19 says But God has listened; He has attended to the voice of my prayer.
 
Proverbs 15:29 The Lord is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.
 
Words from Stan.  The bible tells us that God answers and hears our prayers. Let us be a praying people. The bible tells us when we pray to Jesus we glorify the Father in heaven.
 
God bless you all here in our coffee shop and Happy Mother’s Day to all you mom’s here.  Stan N9RFO

5/02/2021

Look at Him

Turn your eyes upon Jesus and look full at His wonderful face and the things of earth will grow strangely dim at the light of His glory and grace. We should be roll models for Jesus as we walk on this earth spreading His light wherever we go. We want people to see God’s love in us. We want them to want what we have. Lets remember He died for us all lets show Him our love for him.
 
I love being a part of this coffee shop where we can share Jesus.
 
God bless you all here, and may the God of all comfort bless you all.  Stan  – N9FRO

Always Strive for the Best

We should never be what I call a fair weather Christian. One who comes to church a few times a year, gets saved by Jesus Christ then just does nothing for the Lord in his Christian walk. Jesus says being  lukewarm is the worst. He says in Revelation 3: 15-16  I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.  So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. The Christian walk should be honor to Jesus serving Him where you can. Reading the bible daily is a great start.
 
God bless you all Stan – N9RFO.

4/18/2021

Pray without ceasing - 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Jesus never mentioned unanswered prayer. He had the unlimited certainty of knowing that prayer is always answered. Do we have thought the Spirit of God that inexpressible certainty that Jesus had about prayer, or do we think of the times when it seemed that God did not answer our prayer? God answers prayer in the best way – not just sometimes but every time.
 
Words from Stan: God always answers prayer sometimes right away years later or after we are gone. We can see here in our coffee shop how powerful prayer is.
 
God bless you all Stan – N9RFO.

4/11/2021

Word for the Week is Jesus

Jesus said in John 14:6 – I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 
 
Words from Stan:
 
I believe this one verse covers it all. Jesus is the only way to heaven and eternal life with Him. There is no other way. Romans 10:9 King James Version says That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead , thou shalt be saved.
 
God bless you all here in our Coffee Shop  Stan  N9RFO.

Resurrection - Jesus is Lord of All

Jesus gave His very life for all of us on good Friday when he was beaten and hung on the cross to die. Before that He had the last supper in the upper room for His disciples and Himself where He broke bread to represent His broken body and drank wine also to represent His shed blood on the cross. Today we Christians call it Holy Communion, where we can remember what He has done and thank Him. Let’s remember this that Jesus on Resurrection Sunday the stone
was rolled away and He came out of the grave alive. He is a living God not a dead one as many people worship. 
Thank You Jesus for what You have done for all of us. Read Romans 10:9 this will tell you.
 
Romans 10:9  states, “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
 
If you have not asked Jesus into your life, now is the perfect time to do it. Many people will say I will do it later and die at the 11th hour. Then it is too late. Remember Jesus died for a sinner like me. 
 
God bless you all.

My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers

The Drawing of the Father. John 6:44  No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him.
 
Everyone has been created with the ability to reach out beyond his own grasp. But it is God who draws me , and my 
relationship to Him in the first place is an inner, personal one, not an intellectual one. I come into the relationship
through the miracle of God and through my own will to believe. Then I begin to get an intelligent appreciation and 
understanding or the wonder of the transformation in my life.
 
Words from Stan: We see that The Father calls us to His Son Jesus to be saved. Once saved in Christ we have that 
personal relation with Him how great that is. Through Jesus we can come boldly to the throne of God.
 
I am so very sorry that we lost Jack and also Diane who is in special care. Father be with Jack’s family and also Diane
in Your Son Jesus we pray. God bless you all Stan.

Communion - What does the bible say?

Matthew 26-28   
 
Jesus took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and gave it to His disciples, saying, Take and eat; this is My body. Then He took the cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, drink from it, all of you. This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.
 
Words from Stan:  Communion is such a blessing to take before our Lord. He gave it all for all of us. Thank You Jesus for all You have done for us.
 
May our Lord bless you all here in our coffee shop.  Stan N9RFO

3/14/2021

Taken from ( Mornings with Jesus Vol. 7 no. 2 ) 

 Hebrews 12:1-2  Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us , fixing our eyes on Jesus , the pioneer and perfecter of faith . For the joy set before Him He endured the cross  , scorning it’s shame , and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
 
Faith Step: Think about where you look for joy. Is it acquiring things?  Gaining the approval of people?  Set your mind on Jesus today and find your joy in knowing that wherever you go , He goes with you.
 
Words from Stan:  The bible tells us that God will never leave us of forsake us. What a great feeling this is to be cared about and loved by our Lord Jesus. Just think some day and i hope soon we Christians will be with Him forever and ever.
 
May our great Lord the saver of our souls bless you all here in our coffee shop , Stan N9RFO. 

3/12/2021

Being Born Again - What does this mean?

Lets look in John 3:5-8 where Jesus is speaking.
 
Jesus answered, Verily, Verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the
kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit. Marvel not that I said
unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not
tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
 
Words from Stan: Jesus said clearly we must be born again to enter into heaven.
 
Romans 10:9 says. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God
hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. When you have done this you are a child of God and some day be with Him forever.
 
God bless you all.

My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers - The Theology of Resting in God

Matthew 8:26  Why are you fearful, O you of little faith.
 
It is when a crisis arises that we instantly reveal upon whom we rely. If we have been learning to worship God and to place our trust in Him, the crisis will reveal that we can go to the point of breaking, yet without breaking our confidence in Him.
 
A peaceful resting in God, which means a total oneness with Him, will make us not only blameless in His sight, but
also a profound joy to Him.
 
Words from Stan: When we pray as Christians we should go to that quit resting place where it is just one on one with Christ. When we are there it is a personal conversation with God and it pleases Him.
 
I always pray for you all here in our coffee shop, Lord we ask You to bless everyone here in Your Son Jesus we pray.
 
Stan N9RFO.

Word for the Week is Wisdom

James 1: 1 – 5
 
We all need wisdom in our lives to make those right decisions in what ever we do . Family budget , Job , buying a new car , and the list goes on but where do we get this wisdom that we need.
Do we get it from man and if we do it will not always be right , or do we ask God for that wisdom.
If we do He will always give us the correct answer always.  In the bible found in James 1: ! – 5 it says
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives generously to all without finding fault  , and
it will be given to him.
 
Stan N9RFO :  Many times when i work on a message i will ask God for wisdom . He will give me what i need through the power of the Holy Spirit. Thank You Father God  , Jesus , and Holy Spirit.
 
May our great Lord bless you all here in our coffee shop  Stan – N9RFO.

My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers - Fellowship in the Gospel

 1 Thessalonians 3:2 – Fellow laborer in the gospel of Christ
 
I must learn that the purpose of my life belongs to God, not me. God is using me from His great personal perspective , and all He asks of me is that I trust in Him. When I stop telling God what I want, He can freely work His will in me without any hindrance. He can crush me, exalt me, or do anything else He chooses. He simply asks me to have absolute faith in Him and His goodness.
 
Words from Stan:  We as Christians must trust in our Lord Jesus Christ to guide us into His will for our lives. We also must have strong faith to walk with Him in those places that we do not want to go. Remember He will never leave you nor forsake you. 
 
God bless each of you in our coffee shop.

The Purpose of Prayer

Luke 11:1  Lord , teach us to pray.

To say that prayer changes things is not as close to the truth as saying, Prayer changes me, and then I change things. God has established things so that prayer, on the basis of redemption, changes the way a person looks at things. Prayer is not a matter of changing things externally, but one of working miracles in a person’s inner nature.
 
Words from Stan : Prayer is a personal conversation with God. The Lord listens to our prayers and stores them in golden bowls found in Revelation. Let’s be a praying people. God bless you all here in Our Coffee Shop.

Looking in God's Word

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  And in John 1:1 it says In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God , and the Word was God.  Jesus Christ our Lord was with the Father from the very beginning . in John 1:3 it says All things were made by Him ; and without Him was not anything made that was made.
 
Words from Stan:  We owe our Lord Jesus Christ  everything , remember He went to the cross for everyone of us and died a very painful death. But the good news is  that he rose up to heaven to make a way for us. In our Christian walk
let’s remember who we serve and try to walk a walk of direction by following Him.

My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers - The Evidence or the New Birth

John  3:7  You must be born again
 
Am I seeking only for the evidence of God’s king dome , or am I actually recognizing His absolute
sovereign control ?  The new birth gives me a new power of vision by which I begin to discern God’s
control . His sovereignty was there all the time , but with God being true to His nature  , I could not
see it until I received His very nature myself.
 
Words from Stan :  Are you truly born again , if not you will not make it to heaven some day , 
that is a true fact. Going to church does not save you only by the shed blood of Jesus Christ and 
His grace are you saved. Romans 10:9 says , That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead , you will be saved. 
Now is the time to repent before Him before it is to late. You never know when your last breath
will be. I lost my son Shawn in 2007 killed by a hit in run driver. My son knew the Lord and went
straight into Christ’s kingdom in heaven. If he was not a Christian he would be in hell.

My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. ( Yes But ??? )

Luke  9:61 , Lord i will follow You , but.
 
If a person is ever going to do anything worthwhile ,  there will be times when he must risk everything
by his leap in the dark. In the spiritual realm , Jesus Christ demands that you risk everything you
hold on to or believe through common sense , and leap by faith into what He says. Once you obey , you will immediately find that what He says is as solidly consistent as common sense.
 
Words from Stan.  Do we as Christians risk everything for our Lord Jesus , or do we sit back .
Lets not give up our faith in him by following the world with its many problems. Remember  Jesus
died for you to have that personnel relationship with you.
 
God Bless you all here in our coffee shop  Chaplain Stan N9RFO.

Morality may keep you out of jail , but it takes the blood of Jesus Christ to keep you out of hell..
 
Ephesians 1:7  In Him we have redemption through His blood , the forgiveness of sins.
 
Words from Stan:  We must remember that the shed blood  of Jesus our Lord
on the cross is the only thing that saves us . It is by His grace we are saved.

by Oswald Chambers : My Utmost for His Highest.

Luke 23:26 – What my obedience to God cost other people.

They laid hold of a certain man , Simon and on him they laid the cross.
 
Because we are so involved in the universal purposes of God , others are immediately affected by 
our obedience to Him. We can disobey God if we chose , and it will bring immediate relief to the
situation , but it will grieve our Lord. If , however , we obey God , He will care for those who have suffered the consequences of our obedience.
 
Words from Stan.  Sometimes as Christians we take the easy out to avoid consequences , suffering
difficult issues but are we following Jesus. Before you take that first step pray about it to the Lord
and He will direct your steps.

by Oswald Chambers : My Utmost for His Highest

Jeremiah 4:1

Our battles are won or lost in the secret places of our will in God’s presence , never in full view of the world. The Spirit of God seizes me and i am compelled to get alone with God and fight the battle before Him. The battle may take one minute or one year , but that will depend on me , not God.
However long it takes , i must wrestle with it alone before God. Nothing has any power over someone who has fought the battle before God and won there.

Words from Stan: Fighting the battle or the good fight may be very hard for us to do , but with Our Lord nothing is impossible for us. Remember Jesus has won the battle and we can also win as we walk with him. Never give up He will never leave you or forsake you.

God bless you all here in our coffee shop Chaplain Stan N9RFO.

by Oswald Chambers : My Utmost for His Highest

Do you see Jesus in your clouds. found in Revelation 1:7 .

In the Bible , clouds are always associated with God. Clouds are the sorrows , sufferings , or providential circumstances , within or without our personal lives , which actually seem to contradict
the sovereignty of God. Yet it is through these very clouds that the Spirit of God is teaching us
how to walk by faith. What a revelation it is to know that sorrow , bereavement , and suffering are actually the clouds that come along with God.

Words from Stan: As Christians we will walk through all kinds of trials in our walk with Christ
but the question is how do you stand in all of them. Do we trust in Him or not. Remember if you have no trials are you truly saved by Jesus Christ our Lord. Now is the time to drop on your knee’s and
ask Him to forgive you of all your sins knowing that He died for you.

Destined to be Holy

1st. Peter  1:16  Be holy for I am holy.

Never tolerate , because of sympathy for yourself or for others , any practice that is not in keeping
with a holy God. Holiness means absolute purity of your walk before God , the words coming from
your mouth , and every thought in your mind – placing every detail of your life under the scrutiny of God Himself. Holiness is not simply what God gives me , but what God has given me that is
being exhibited in my life.


Words from Stan , Lets look at ourselves , and what people see in us as we walk in this world.
Do they see a loving person who is kind to others and loves Jesus or do they see a person who
is unkind has a bad mouth and walks in the ways of this world. Remember people are watching
us as Christians to see how we stand.

God bless you all Stan N9RFO.

Who is this Jesus

John 1:1 says , In the beginning was the Word , and the Word was with God , and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him , and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life , and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness , and the darkness did not comprehend it.

Words from Stan , This passage tells us that Jesus was with the Father from the very beginning.
It also tells us that all things were made by Him. Man , tree’s , plants , all animal’s ,stars , ect. It also says there is no darkness in him. Darkness must flee at His presents. We as Christians serve a powerful Lord worthy to be praised in everything. We also say thank You Father God for giving us
Your son Jesus to save us from this lost world , and make a way to be with You and Him in heaven for ever and ever.

May Our great Lord bless and keep you all here in our coffee shop. Stan N9RFO.

God's Promises for Forgiveness

Matthew 6:14 – 15 Says For if you forgive men their trespasses , Your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you don’t forgive men their trespasses neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Words from Stan – It can be very hard to forgive people who have wronged you but
we must. This is very important to God. If you will not forgive it can destroy your walk with him , and also hinder your prayer life as well.


God’s Promises for Healing

James 5:14 – 15 Says Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly , and let them pray over him , anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. and the prayer of faith will heal
him who is sick , and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed sins , he will be forgiven.

Words from Stan – My friend Marc Strong last year was dying with 3 forms of cancer. We laid hands on him anointing him with oil and praying over him at our church. He was only 95 lbs. and the doctors gave him no hope. Shortly after this his hunger for food came back , and his tumors disappeared. I think Marc now is around 170 lbs. WOW how great is our God.

My Utmost for His Highest Devotional by Oswald Chambers. All or Nothing.

John 21:7 says Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord , he put on his garment ,
and plunged into the sea.

Have you ever had a crisis in your life in which you deliberately , earnestly , and recklessly
abandoned everything ? It is a crisis of the will. You may come to that point many times externally,
but it will amount to nothing. The true deep crisis of abandonment , or total surrender , is reached
internally , not externally.

Have you deliberately committed your will to Jesus Christ? Make the determination to surrender
your will.


Words from Stan. There is nothing like totally surrendering your life to Jesus our Lord. Letting go
can be the hardest for us , but with Jesus guiding us through what He has for us it can be joyful.
Thank You Lord for Your great love for each one of us.

God bless each one of you here in our coffee shop , Stan N9RFO.

My Utmost for His Highest. By Oswald Chambers.

 Isaiah 52:12 says:  The God of Israel will be your rear guard. 

At the end of the year we turn with eagerness to all that God has for the future, and yet anxiety is apt to arise when we remember our yesterdays.

But God is the God of yesterdays, and He allows the memory of them to turn the past into a ministry of spiritual growth for our future.  God reminds us of the past to protect us from a very shallow security in the present..
 
 
Words from Chaplain Stan: We serve a great and wonderful Lord who is worthy of all our praise.
Thank You Jesus for loving us and protecting us.

My Highest for His Highest. By Oswald Chambers.

His. John 17-6 They were Yours , You gave them to Me.

Our Lord makes His disciple His very own possession , becoming responsible for him.
The desire that comes into a disciple is not one of doing anything for Jesus , but of being
a perfect delight to Him . The secret is truly being able to say , I am His and He is accomplishing
His work and His purposes through me. Be entirely His.

Words from Stan , Are you all in for Jesus , The question is , are you entirely His and His only.
Remember Christ died for you on the cross so you can be set free from sin.

God Bless you all in Our Coffee Shop

What does the Bible say about following God's Holy Word.

Lets look in James 1:12 where it says ,

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial , for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life , which God has promised to those who love him.

Words from Stan. The more we love Jesus the more we will honor Him and His Word. We all go through trials in our walk with Christ and the reason for that is to make us a stronger Christian.
I thank God for my trials even though some of them were very hard to walk through but as i look back
i am a better and stronger person for that. Thank You Jesus.

By Oswald Chambers The utmost for His Highest..

The Greatest Source of Power. John 14:13 Says , Whatever you ask in My name , that I will do.

What is the greatest source of power in my life? What ought to exert the greatest power in my life is
the atonement of the Lord. It is not on what we spend the greatest amount of time that molds us the most , but whatever exerts the most power over us. We must take a determination to limit and concentrate our desires and interests on atonement by the Cross of Christ.

Christ did it all when He died for us on the Cross. When He died and spoke His last breath He said it is finished. In this life it is hard to focus on Him because of Satan. His main goal is to keep us from Christ.

Thank You Jesus for what You did for us all on the Cross.

God bless you all, Stan N9RFO.

10/18/2020

Words from Stan

As we walk through life wherever we may be, we are God’s shining light to the world in our Christian walk. Ask yourself how am i doing.

We all need a personal relationship with Jesus to enter His heaven some day. Do we start out every day in His word? Do we share Jesus with people we meet?

If we can plant a small seed for God that He can bring to light for that person we are blessed, for that is what He wants. That is one of God’s commands that we preach the Word, tell others about Him. Think of it like this, would you want that person to go to hell because we said nothing? We should not want that for our enemies, yet our friends.

Did you know in God’s kingdom we will be kings, queens, priest, some will hold higher office than others which will depend on how we live our lives and what we do for Christ here on earth.

By Oswald Chambers , My Utmost for His Highest. ( Does He know me )

John 10:3 He calls by name.

It is possible to know all about doctrine and still not know Jesus. A
person’s soul is in grave danger when the knowledge ofdoctrine surpasses
Jesus , avoiding intimate touch with Him. Do you have a personal history
with Jesus Christ?The one true sign of discipleship is intimate oneness
with Him – a knowledge of Jesus that nothing can shake.

Words from Chaplain Stan. We can think we are Christians by going to
church studying His Word and saying we are ok when we my not be. You
must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ to be a Christian.
Have you given your life to Him.Have you ask Jesus to forgive you of all
your sins , with all your heart. If you have, you are a Christian sealed
and saved by Christ.

Our Happiness. From God's Little Instruction Book II.

The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people , rather than the
form of its government.

Psalm 144:15 says , Happy is that people whose God is the Lord.

Words from Stan , Look at this country today and you can see that our
Lord Jesus is not for most people there God. They focus on what they
have not who has given it to them. Taking God out of everything as this
country does , and killing unborn babies is not God’s plan. We as a
nation need to turn our hearts back to Him repent and pray , then he
will heal our land. 

God Bless all of you here in our coffee shop,

Words from Stan , In our every day life what do people see about our
conduct. Do they see a person with a foul mouth or one that loves Jesus
Christ , and always has good things to say with a smile. We as
Christians need to be imitators of our Lord Jesus , then we will walk
the way God wants us to walk. God Bless you all here in our coffee shop

Always be Ready

As we look at God’s Word we are today as in the days
of Noah before the great flood when the Lord poured out his anger and
wrath on the earth. Back in the day there was buying , selling ,
marriage and given in marriage , ect. People went to and fro not knowing
what was coming. All prophecy has been fulfilled for the return of Jesus
our Lord. Are you ready.

The bible tells us in 1 st. Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself
will descend from heaven with a shout , with the voice of an archangle ,
and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them
in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be
with the Lord. What a great day for us Christians. Look at the mess
today on earth and you know the day is very near. Remember always be
ready.

God bless you all here in our coffee shop from Stan N9RFO.

From Oswald Chambers My Utmost for His Highest. Our Misgivings About Jesus

John 4:11 Sir You have nothing to draw with.If we are honest ,
we will admit that we never have misgivings or doubts about ourselves ,
because we know exactly what we are capable or incapable of doing. But
we do have misgivings about Jesus.

If I detect misgivings in myself , I should confess them Lord , I have
had misgivings about You. I have not believed in Your abilities but only
in my own. And I have not believed in Your almighty power apart from my
finite understanding of it.

Word from Stan N9RFO. We need to look at ourselves and know that Jesus
has all power and glory and all things that were made were made by Him
and for Him. When we realize this all misgivings about Jesus Christ our
Lord will be gone. Then we can look up and trust in Him.

9/1/2020

From Oswald Chambers My Utmost for His Highest. My Joy, Your Joy.

What does Jesus say about Joy. John 15;11That My joy may remain in you ,
and that your joy may be full.What was the joy that Jesus had. Joy
should not be confused with happiness. In fact , it is an insult to
Jesus Christ to use the word happiness in connection with Him. The joy
of Jesus was His absolute self – surrender and self sacrifice to His
Father – the joy of doing that which the Father sent Him to do. Jesus
Prayed that our joy might continue fulfilling itself until it becomes
the same joy as His . Have i allowed Jesus Christ to introduce His joy
to me.

Thought by Stan , when you have the true joy that comes from Jesus there
is nothing like it . It is greater than happiness by far. You must be
saved by His great grace to find out.

God Bless you all,

Stan N9RFO

From Oswald Chambers My Utmost for His Highest. ( The Spiritual Search.)

Matthew 7:9 Or what man is there among you who,if his son asks
for bread , will give him a stone.

Never say that it is not God,s will to give you what you ask. Don’t
faint and give up , but find out the reason you have not received
increase the intensity of your search and examine the evidence.

For most of us , prayer simply becomes some trivial religious
expression , a matter of mystical and emotional fellowship with God.If
we will search out and examine the evidence , we will see very clearly
what is wrong. There is no use praying unless we are living as children
of God.

Chaplain Stan. Many times in my walk as a Christian there are Christians
who do nothing for God but get saved and sit back , but as Christians
God expects much more than that. from us. Love the Lord by example ,
showing Him. Go to church ,read His Word get involved walk the walk as
He wants you to and see how you prayer life through faith grows strong .

8/17/2020

Taken from God's little Instruction Book II

If the grass looks greener n the other side of the fence , you can bet the water bill is higher.
Hebrews 13:5 Says let your character or moral disposition be free from
love of money including greed , avarice , lust , and craving for earthly
possessions and be satisfied with your present circumstances and with
what you have. Always be pleased with what you have because God has
given it to you. If you do not you are saying what He has given you is
not good enough. We always want to please our Lord. Just remember He
went to the cross to die for us and our sins , to set us free and you
are free indeed. Thank You Jesus.

May the good Lord bless you and keep you. Stan N9RFO.

From My Utmost for His Highest by ( Oswald Chambers ) Suffering Afflictions and Going the Second Mile

Matthew 5:39 But i tell you not
to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek ,
turn the other cheek , turn the other to him also.Every time I insist on
having my own rights , I hurt the Son of God , while in fact I can
prevent Jesus from being hurt if I will take the blow myself. A disciple
realizes that it is his Lord’s honor that is at stake in his life , not
his own honor.

Many times in my own Christian walk I have been hurt by others while
doing God’s work. Do we honor and respect Him as our Lord and savior.
Look at what Jesus did for us , he was mocked , made fun of and beaten
for us. The bible says count it all joy when these things are done to
you , for your reward will be great in heaven. I hope some day to here
the words from Jesus well done good and faithful servant.

God Bless you
all Stan N9RFO.

From My Utmost for His Highest. By Oswald Chambers. ( The Go of Relationship ) Matthew 5:41 And whoever compels you to go one mile , go with him two.

No amount of enthusiasm will ever stand up to the strain that Jesus
Christ will put upon His servant. Only one thing will bear the strain ,
and that is a personal relation with Jesus Christ Himself- a
relationship that has been examined , purified , and tested until only
one purpose remains and I can truly say , I am here for God to send me
where He will. Everything else may become blurred , but this
relationship with Jesus Christ must never be. We as Christians must
have a strong relationship with Jesus always putting Him first in our
lives. The ways to do this is first read His Word daily , and attend
church weekly. You see look at this world Christ Jesus is coming very
soon are you ready to meet Him , and are you ready to go where He will
send you. May the Lord bless you and keep you let his face shine upon
you be gracious unto you and give you piece.

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.

In Matthew 14:29-31 And He Jesus said , come. And when peter was come
down out of the ship , he walked on the water , to go to Jesus. But when
he saw the wind boisterous , he was afraid ; and beginning to sink , he
cried saying , Lord save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth His
hand , and caught him. When we as Christians take our eyes off Jesus we
make the wrong decisions. Always listen to him that still voice , and
always obey so you will not fall into a trap. If God says turn right and
you were going left make sure that you turn right because danger could
be ahead if you do not obey. The bible tell us that obedience is better
than sacrifice. God loves His kids to be obedient.

May the Lord Jesus bless you all here in the coffee shop.

False Teachers and Prophets in the Last days.

Second Peter Chapter 2 . But there were false prophets also among the
people , even as there shall be false teachers among you ,

who privily shall bring in damnable heresies , even denying the Lord
that brought them , and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way
of truth shall be evil spoken of. We as Christians need to

read and know our bibles so when false teachings are taught to us we
flee from them. We do not want to be lead a stray from God’s

truth , and suffer the consequences of our actions. Many churches today
teach the wrong thinks and lead many away from Jesus Christ our Lord.

My Our Lord Jesus bless you all here in our Coffee Shop.

"Winning into Freedom"

Therefore if the Son makes you free , you shall
be free indeed. John 8:36

Stop listening to the tyranny of your individual Natural life and win
freedom into spiritual life.

The Savior has set us free from sin , but this is the freedom that comes
from being set free from myself by the Son.

We tend to rely on our own energy instead of being energized by the
power that comes from identification with Jesus.

John 8:36 clearly tells us that Jesus has set us free from all sin. But
the evil one tell us the exact opposite. We must keep our eyes

on Jesus so that satan can not get a foot hold in our lives. He will
deceive us in many ways. God bless you all from Stan N9RFO.

7/7/2020

Does the evil one have power over us when we are Christians

The bible says in 1st. Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted , He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

God says in Hebrews 13:5 I will never leave you , nor forsake you .

When God says it , it is pure truth. We are tempted because we are Christians and satan hates us because we are a child of God. If you are never tempted i would say are you truly saved by Christ Jesus our Lord. 

God bless you all from Stan N9RFO.

Word for the Week. By Oswald Chambers ( My Utmost for His Highest )

Am i My Brothers Keeper. Romans 14:7 None of us lives to himself.

Has it ever dawned on you that you are responsible spiritually to God
for other people? For instance , if i allow turning away from God in my
private life , everyone around me suffers. If you allow physical
selfishness , mental carelessness , moral insensitivity , or spiritual
weakness , everyone in contact with you will suffer. But you ask , Who
is sufficient to be able to live up to such a lofty standard ? “Our
sufficiency is from God” and God alone found in 2 Corinthians 3:5″.

Our actions around others are so very important we need to aways be
looking up for His Guidance. God bless you all Stan N9RFO.

Success, what is it? Taken from "God's little Instruction Book II"

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.

In James 1:12 it (The Bible) says,

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

Many times in life whether it be our jobs or whatever it is do we persevere till the end trusting God for the outcome. If you do, you will see the blessing.

Taken from Mark Cahill's book, One Thing You Can't Do in Heaven.

One thing you can’t do in heaven is witness to the lost souls. It is so very important while we still have breath and are alive to tell someone about Jesus our Lord. Starting the conversation could be as simple as do you go to church anywhere, that will open the door for conversation. Mark says when you witness or share Jesus they accept, you plant the seed or they reject the Lord. But in all cases it is winning, winning, winning.  As we go out for the Lord to do his work we are winners.  Even when the door gets slammed in our face God gives us credit for sharing Him. Jesus himself was rejected while on earth, why shouldn’t we be as well.

In Luke 6:23 the bible says,

Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

You can see that God is well pleased with us when we tell others about Him.  Mark’s book is well worth reading, It can change your life. When my wife and i lost our son Shawn we read this book. Mark says strike while the iron is hot. We were able to use our loss to witness for Jesus. Thank You Lord for that in our time of grief.

May the Lord Jesus bless and keep you all till he returns.

God has a history of using the insignificant to accomplish the impossible

And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible , but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Many times in my life after praying i can see what Jesus says through answered prayer. The things that are impossible become possible.

People healed, money received, food clothing, ect. all these things come from God and have come to light.

Thank You Lord for Your great love.

"Love"

Lets look at love in God’s Word.

1st. Corinthians 13:1

Though i speak with the tongues of men and of angles, and have not charity, that is love I am become as a sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

1st Corinthians 13:3

And though i bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though i give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

1st Corinthians 13: 13

And now abideth faith, hope, charity these three but the greatest of these is charity.

Love is so important and without love we are nothing. Look at the US today and the lack of love. These riots today are the exact opposite of love. Our Lord Jesus showed us what love is by dying on the cross for us all. The bible says to love thy neighbor as thyself which is the second commandment from God.

God bless you all,

Remember Jesus is coming very soon be ready.

Our Careful Unbelief

 

Matthew 6:25

Therefore I say to you , do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on.

Don’t take the pressure of your provision upon yourself. It is not only wrong to worry; it is unbelief. Worrying means we do not believe that God can look after the practical details of our lives, and it is never anything but those details that worry us. The only cure for unbelief is obedience to the Spirit.

Many times as Christians we put God in a box and not allow Him to work in our lives. God the Father with Jesus created all things He can do anything and we must trust in Him. When my Sharon and i had the Star Fish Ministries in our home we had homeless men living with us. At first some did not have jobs but we trusted in the Lord and the money was always there, our food supply was always there our fridge sometimes was overflowing. This is what God can do if you totally trust him and let go.

God Bless you all, and God bless the week ahead.

What does the word (in Christ) mean?

Galatians 3:26-28 says:

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew, nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

2nd. Corinthians 5: 21 says:

For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.

The bible tells us if we are in Christ, saved by His grace we are free of sin. When Father God looks at us through His Son Jesus who is in us He sees no sin, we are white as snow.

Thank You Father God for Your Son Jesus, and Jesus thank You for dying on the cross for us all.

God bless you all,

God's Promises

Grace to Persevere,

Romans 8:38,39 says:

I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities  nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


How great His love is for us that while we were still sinners He died for us.  Thank You Jesus for Your great love.

God bless you all,

Why is forgiveness so important?

Let’s look inside the Bible to find out.

Matthew 6:14 – 15 says:

For if you forgive men their trespasses, Your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you don’t forgive men their trespasses, neither will Your Father forgive your trespasses.

Not forgiving others will stop the prayer life you have with God. In other words let’s look in

Matthew 22:37-39 it says:

Jesus said to them, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it : You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

If you love your neighbor as yourself you will forgive him of his trespasses.

God bless you all,

"The Source of Abundant Joy"

Romans 8:37

Yet in all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

The things we try to avoid and fight against , tribulation , suffering , and persecution are the vary things that produce abundant joy in us.A saint doesn’t know the joy of the Lord in spite of tribulation but because of it. The undiminished radiance, which is the result of abundant joy, is not built on anything passing but on the love of God that nothing can change.

We all need abundant joy from our Lord Jesus Christ who died for us in our place.

Thank You Father for Your great Son Jesus.

God bless you all,

Stan N9RFO

How do we as Christians remain in Christ love, and Christ's Joy?

Here is what the Holy Word of God says.

Let’s look in John 15: 10-11

If you keep My commandments, you will remain in My love; even as I have kept My Father’s commandments, and remain in His love.

I have spoken these things to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be made full.

What a great King we serve in our Lord Christ Jesus. As Christians what a great day for us when The Lord takes us home to be with Him forever and forever Amen.

Have a very blessed week.

Are You Ready?

Are you ready for the soon rapture of the church. Rapture or Harpazo which means Taken by Force.

1st Thessalonians 4:15-17 says:

For this we say to you by the Word or the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming or the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice or an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead of Christ will rise first.

Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the air. And thus we shall always be
with the Lord.

Therefore comfort one another with these words. It is very soon for His return are you ready.  Do you have a personal relationship with Him?

Romans 10:9 says:

That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

God bless you all,

As we are all concerned about the Coronavirus This song moves my heart.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus and look full in his wonderful face and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.
 
What does the bible say about His grace?
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
 
Not of works, lest any man should boast. Grace means,  God moving heaven and earth to save sinners who could not lift a finger to save themselves . Jesus died on the cross for that very reason to save the lost souls of the world. Do you know Him well enough  to have a personal relationship with Him?
 
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus , and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead , thou shalt be saved.
 
If you have not now is the time. 
Jesus is coming very soon.
 
God Bless you all,

Seeking the Lord what a perfect time to do so

Look at the mess the whole world is in now. This new virus has taken hold of many countries even the US.

God is in control ,let’s look at His Word.

John 1:1 -1:5 
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

Jesus is coming very soon are you all ready. Now is the time to get closer to Jesus. Study your Word. If you want to learn about Jesus start reading in the book of John, a great place to start.

God Bless you all,

Stan N9RFO.

Faith

Faith is found in the Bible in Hebrews 11:1 where it says: 

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. 

To have faith you must believe in God’s power that He can  do everything if it is in His will.

Jesus told us in Matthew 17:20 

For most certainly I tell you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will tell this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move ; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Another thing about faith is trust. You must trust in the Lord to have it. In my Christian walk by trusting in Him I have seen many marvelous and wonderful things happen. A few years back my wife Sharon and I had a ministry at our home called the StarFish Ministry, where we took in homeless men. We had 5 men and one young boy named Rider. We trusted in Him and our bills were paid , also our fridge was overflowing with food. Thank You Jesus for that. Trust in Him and do not doubt.

Praying for you all during this trying time we our facing.

As we are concerned about the Coronavirus COVID - 19 This might help us look ahead.

From Living Abundantly Through God’s Blessings by Jim Cymbala

The Holy Spirit has been sent to lift up our heads , no matter the circumstances , and fulfill the word spoken by the prophet so long ago. 

Isaiah 51:11 says gladness and joy will overtake them , and sorrow and sighing will flee away. 

As we look ahead let’s remember that God is always in control. The bible says He will never leave us or forsake us. Always look to the author and finisher of our faith Jesus Christ our risen Lord.   

God bless you all,

Always be ready

From My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers

 2nd Timothy 4:2 

Says be ready in season and out of season.  Many of us suffer from unbalanced tendency to be ready only out of season. If we do only what we feel inclined to do, some of us would never do anything.

There are some people who are totally unemployable in the spiritual realm. They are spiritually feeble and weak and they refuse to do anything unless they are supernaturally inspired.

The proof that our relationship is right with God is that we do our best whether we feel inspired or not.

Always be ready for Christ’s return. 

God Bless you all,

Wisdom is the quality that keeps you from getting into situations where you need it.

…from God’s Little Instruction Book II

Proverbs 4:11-12  

11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

12 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straightened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

I would have you learn this great fact. If you live that kind of life, you”ll not limp or stumble as you run. Wisdom is a great virtue to have. Look at Solomon the Lord said he was the wisest man that ever lived.  God blessed him because he did not ask for great wealth but God blessed him with both,  wisdom and great wealth. Stop and think , and ask God to give you wisdom in you life and its trials and he will always be with you.

May God richly bless you all in Jesus name.

A day Hemmed in Prayer is less likely to Unravel

…from God’s Little Instruction Book II

Pray about everything; tell God your needs and do not forget to thank Him for His answers. If you do this you will experience God’s peace, His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest. 

Philippians 4:6-7

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Always start your day in prayer thanking jesus for the day ahead , and He will make it great.

God bless you all,

Memorizing Scripture, why it is so important

Scripture memorizing is so very important because wherever you are being able to speak out god’s Word can change someones life forever. At the store at the gym family gatherings etc. When you do not have the
bible with you how can you tell others about Jesus. Memorize these two:

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Romans 10:9

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Either one of these scriptures spoken to a stranger or friend can cause that person to be saved through the power of God. Remember God’s Word does not come back void.

God bless you all,

Lifes's Great Responsibility

“From God’s little instruction book.”

Life affords no greater responsibility, no greater privilege , than the raising of the next generation.

Deuteronomy-11:19 – 21 says,

Teach them, God’s commandments to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down, and when you get up. So that your days and the days of your children may be many.

God has a plan for each of us and all we have do do is follow Him.

God Bless you all,

What is God's Love

John:14:21 says,

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Proverbs 8:17 says,

I love them that love Me; and those that seek Me early shall find Me.

Matthew 28:20 says,

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

 

What great love this is to be with us even till the end of the world. To me God’s love is dying for me on the cross for my sins. Thank You Lord Jesus for Your great love You have for Your children.

Thank you all and God Bless,

Stan N9RFO

By Oswald Chambers: "My Utmost for His Highest" morning meditations. Jan. 27

Do not worry about your life.

Matthew 6:25

“Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?”

Our Lord says to be careful only about one thing—-our relationship to Him. But our common sense says, “That is absurd I must consider how I am going to live, and I must consider what I am going to eat and drink.” Jesus says you must not.

Beware of allowing yourself to think that He says this while not understanding your circumstances. Jesus Christ knows our circumstances better than we do, and He says we must not think about these things to the point where they become the primary concern of our life.

Matthew 6:34

“Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”

In other words do not worry for, tomorrow, the Lord will take care of all your needs.

Have a great week!

Is There Really a Hell

Is there really a Hell?  That total place of darkness where the worm eats you from the inside, and the fire burns you from the outside. Yes!  There is!

Let’s look a scripture. 

Luke 16:19-31

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day.

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus , which was laid at his gate, full or sores.

And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 

And it came to pass, that the beggar died , and was carried by the angles into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried.

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth  Abraham afar off, and in Lazarus bosom. 

And he cried out and said, Father Abraham have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for i am tormented in this flame.

But Abraham said, son, remember that thou in thy lifetime received thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

And besides this, between us and you there is a great fixed gulf: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot;  neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father house.

For i have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 

And he said , Nay father Abraham : but if one went to them from the dead, they will repent.

And he said unto him, if they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

You can see that hell is a real place and all who do not believe in Jesus the Christ, that will be their home forever.

God Bless you all,
Stan  N9RFO

Are you ready for the soon rapture of the church of Jesus Christ

Are you ready for the soon rapture of the church of Jesus Christ.

Look in 1st. Thessalonians 4:15 -17:

For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

What a great day that will be for us Christians.  Are you 100% sure that you will go to heaven to be with him when he comes. After that there will be no more children on earth, they will be taken up. Also the Holy Spirit will be gone too. The world will not be the place you want to be.

I love you all, Be ready.

God bless you,

2020 A New Year

What plans do we have for the new year ahead? Always put God first. Jesus died for us all and we thank Him for that great blessing.

I learned Sunday at Solid Rock Church, when the spikes were driven into Jesus hands and feet, they were driven next to nerves which caused great pain for him.

Many times i think, why Lord did You die for a sinner as i and He would say because I Love you.
Jesus loves us all and wants no one to go the that place of torment that is hell.

Just remember Romans 10:9

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

And John 3:16

For God so loved the world , that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

These two bible verses confirm how important it is to have a personal relational with him.

May God bless you all.

Stan N9RFO.

Plans for the New Year?

As the New Year 2020 approaches what are our plans for it. The first thing we ought to do is put our Lord Jesus first.

Let’s look at some of God’s promises in His Word:

Isaiah 41:13

For I am your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you , Do not fear , I will help you.

James 4:7

Submit yourselves , then , to God. Resist the devil , and he will flee from you.

Deuteronomy 31:8

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

There are many promises in the bible to bless us in 2020. Always remember the first commandment that Jesus gave.

Matthew 22:37 -40

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart , and with all thy soul , and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it , Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


Love God first , love man second.

God Bless you all, have a Happy New Year From Stan N9RFO.

What is Christmas?

Is Christmas all about Presents, Christmas Trees, Santa, Family Gatherings, etc.?

These are ok for us as Christians to be a part of but is that all it is?

We should honor our Lord Jesus to celebrate his birth first.

We do not know if he was borne on Dec. 25 but it does not make any difference when it was but we honor it.

Merry Christmas to all of you from Stan N9RFO.

Why Seeking God's Word Is So Important

Read in Matthew 6-33 where it
says. 

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 

As i have said before as Christians we need to read his Word daily so the Lord can give us the proper direction to go. Without God’s Word to guide us we can make the wrong choices in life.

Just crack open his Word and be led.

Chaplain Stan
N9RFO

Our lives are as dust here on earth...

Our lives are as dust here on earth. One minute we are here alive and
the next minute we are gone.

Let me ask you all a question. 
If you died today are you 100% sure you would go to heaven? 

Stop and think about this for a while. 

There is only one way to heaven and that is through Jesus Christ, God’s only Son. 

His Son walked the earth fully man and fully God. Jesus died for us on the cross to make the way and all we have to do is repent of our sins with all our heart, know and believe that He died for us on the cross and we are saved. Believe is the main word. We must believe.

God bless everyone of you,

What is Thanksgiving?

What is Thanksgiving?

We need to always thank our Lord Jesus Christ for
all he has given us.  Like our family  , friends , jobs , our health ,
and most of all himself.

He gave his life for everyone on the cross. Do you have a personal relationship with him?

If you do not it is never too late to do it.

Romans 10:9 says,

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

It is that simple and we all should do it.
I want to see you all there someday. My God bless every one of you.

As Christians we should read God's Word daily

As Christians we should read God’s Word daily. I prefer the first thing
in the morning. The  B I B L E definition could be like this.

Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.

Did you know that Jesus said He holds His Word above Himself. This is why it is so important.

2nd. Timothy 3:16, 3:17 says:

All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Just try it. Sit down in the morning with a fresh cup of coffee and read
His word. This will set the precedence for your day ahead.

God bless you all,

How important it is that we keep God's name Holy?

How important it is that we keep God’s name Holy?

Hollywood, i mean hellywood, does not do this. 

Today PG13 and R rated movies take the Lord’s name in vane to dishonor him, blaspheme it. Even omg makes his name common place, when it is the highest name above all names.  

At the name Jesus demons flee.  At the name of Jesus every knee will bow some day. We need to do it willingly, and we as Christians, will but woe to those who are forced to.

Lets remember who created everything that in our Lord Jesus.

  2. Life is what you make it So live for our Lord Jesus.
    and He will make you free To be with him all ways
    So god blest you all in love of jesus amen!

  3. Good morning Stan,

    Your most recent message regarding reading God’s word daily reminds me of Jesus’s words in Matthew 4:4 , https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Matthew-4-4/

    “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

    While it is necessary for us to eat, consume food and water to sustain our life, it is just as necessary for our soul that we feed on the word of God.

    Thank you for a great reminder!
    God Bless,
    Tom
