Sad Day in American history!

          Yesterday,  January 6, 2021 will ultimately go down as one of the saddest days in American History! The reason will vary depending on who you talk with, some will say it is because of the defiance of an American President, others will  say it is because of the outcome of a stolen election, others will say because it is the beginning of the Socialist takeover of America.

However, the reality is that when a group of thugs overrun the Capital building in the name of protest we have stepped into a place in history that sadly will live in the history books for decades. It is heart breaking that people were hurt, and a young lady was killed, people lived through the fear of this event.  Justice must be carried out, every person involved must be prosecuted.

          The reality is, we must STOP the madness! Most importantly, it is time for the Church to do what it does best, step up to its rightful place in America and become the Great Healer. It is time for the Church, first and foremost to unite in PRAYER for the next Great Move of GOD! No matter who you believe should be in the White House, what your political affiliation is, no matter your race, financial income, or even gender. The only thing that is going to Heal America is Prayer and a move of God!

          We hear a lot of people quoting 2 Chronicles 7: 14 … in the King James Bible it reads: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

          If America is going to survey the next 50 years, let alone another 200 hundred years we need the Christian Church to unite in prayer.  We need to see a “Transformation, a Reformation, and then a Proclamation of the Gospel across America” We need to be Praying for a Revival to sweep the land from the “White House, to the Farm House, to the Beech House across America and from the Eastern shoreline to the West Coast, from the Northern Boarder to Southern Boarder of America.  

          We need to stand united at the Throne Room of Heaven, praying, weeping, pleading, and believing God for the Next Great Awakening, a Revival that will sweep the land with such power that men and women will fall to the ground on their faces pleading for God’s forgiveness of sin.  We need to pray that pastors, chaplains, and Christian educators will stand to their feet and preach and teach the Bible as the infallible word of God, that Christ is the Son of God, who died for our sins, and arose from the grave, and is coming back soon.

 

          Let me be clear as a close, I don’t personally think that President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris are the best choice to lead America. I, from a Biblical point of view disagree with their position on several things. However, on January 20th they will be sworn in as President and Vice-President.  As a Christian it is my job to pray for them, pray that they hear from God, and pray that they lead America as God would do. While, continuing to pray for the Revival that I believe God is going to use to shake America and the World.

Sad reality within the church~

The impact of Suicide, even within our churches today!             Reports have emerged that Pastor Bill Lenz who was founder and longtime senior pastor of Christ the Rock Community Church in Harrison, WI died Monday by committing Suicide.   Bill was a strong advocate within the Christian community for Suicide Prevention, and along with his brother created Life Promotions, that ministers and teaches folks about Suicide Prevention and how to recover from those thoughts.             Reports that I have read have stated that Pastor Lenz reported suffering with Anxiety,   Panic Attacks, and Depression for about three months, and his staff and board responded by providing support and encouragement including giving him time to seek counseling and treatment.   However, the depression became overwhelming and on Monday, he chose to take his own life.    My prayers are with his family, friends, staff, and members of his church.   Having provided Suicide Prevention training to staff

My top 5 books …

I thank God every day for my Amazon Kindle account, Google Books, and other apps that allow me to carry hundreds of books with me everywhere I go. Then of course there is the dozen of paperback and hardback books sitting on my desk in my office, on the bookcase at home, and stand beside my chair in the living room. Yes, the reality is I love to read, I think it can be traced back to my Grandma Argue, when we lived with her while my dad was overseas with the Air Force, she would have me sit and read for a half-hour to her before anything else got started. Of course, she set the example by reading one to two books a day. Today, I average around a book a week in addition to reading portions of other books as I study various topics, in addition there are the dozen of articles I read to help prepare sermons, teaching outlines, etc. However, there are 5 books that have been my favorite over the years, and in my opinion a must read for everybody.

Five Essentials to Ministering to Men

How to have an Impactful Ministry to Men in your local church! Several years ago I was given the challenge of being the Men’s leader at a local church and the responsibility to take the lead in what would become the most challenging and rewarding ministry of my lifetime. In my experience I have found five essentials to Ministering to Men. These are the principles that I use daily as a Men’s Leader, and that teach in seminars throughout the Midwest. My prayer is that you will be blessed by these thoughts and encouraged in your ministry. 1.        Prayer: Prayer is the essential factor to the beginning and the continued success of any ministry; Ministering to Men is no different. I personally maintain a list of every man within our church and make it a point to pray for them weekly, dividing them over the Monday through Friday.   I pray for their personal needs, that they have wisdom in leading and being the spiritual head of their family, that they will continue to grow spiritually, an
