Psalm 23

The LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, to guide and to shield me], I shall not want. He lets me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still and quiet waters.

He refreshes and restores my soul (life); He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the [sunless] [a]valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

You have anointed and refreshed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, And I shall dwell forever [throughout all my days] in the house and in the presence of the LORD.

  • The fall of Moral and Religious People

    “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  – John Adams, US President, 1824   God: When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked rule, the people mourn. He sets himself on path that’s not good. Hate evil, love good and establish justice!  Pursue what is good not evil. 

  • Fall of Babylon The Great

    The book of Revelation is somewhat difficult for many Christians to understand.  Like many other books of the Bible, the book of Revelation follows a series of events from the origin of the earth in book of Genesis to the end of the Satan’s rule upon this earth, foretold to Jesus tp his brother John in a dream.

  • The Truth About The Inflation Reduction Act

    Since news broke out that the FBI searched President Donald Trump’s South Florida home, some members of Congress have launched a new line of attack against their rivals: that the Internal Revenue Service intends to use nearly $80 billion in new funding to pursue similar intrusions on average Americans. Those dollars, some are saying, will go toward the hiring of 87,000 new IRS agents.

  • One Nation Under God – Same Sex Marriages

    What are God’s laws concerning homosexuality? God repeatedly propounded his laws upon Moses, who later wrote in the book of Leviticus (which literarily means “the law”) that: “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22

  • Was Trump a Great Leader

    Was Donald Trump a great leader?  Arguably, many Americans prior to the 2020 Presidential Election were feeling pretty good about the economy and prospects for the future under the leadership of Donald J. Trump.During Trump’s leadership, unemployment in 2019, a major concern of many American’s, was reported to be at an all-time low percentage of 3.9%.

  • Battleground Your Mind

    I wrote this article many years ago. I wish I could take credit for all of it, but it is in fact taken from several ministers, including Joyce Meyer.  I am again publishing this article because of a comment a long-time friend of mine made about the original that was lost when this website was viciously hacked back in 2021.

  • WHY IS SATAN ALLOWED TO RULE THIS WORLD

    How did it come to be that God has allowed Satan to rule the world in consideration that the Bible informs us that “In the beginning, when God created the universe, the earth was formless and desolate. The raging ocean that covered everything was engulfed in total darkness, and the Spirit of God was moving over the water. Then God commanded, Let there be light”—and light appeared. 

Marriage

God designed marriage to fulfill six important and vital functions.


 

 When we understand them, we will be better able to honor marriage.

1. Companionship
“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3).

2. Enjoyment
“Marriage is honorable” (Hebrews 13:4).

3. Completeness
She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man” (Genesis 2:23).

4. Fruitfulness
God’s first command in Scripture is this: “… Be fruitful  (Genesis 1:28).

5. Protection
A husband is to protect his wife by laying down his life for her. (See Ephesians 5:25.)

6. Typify Christ and the Church
Marriage is to be a human object lesson of the divine relationship between Christ and believers. (See Ephesians 5:31–33.)

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

Jesus Survives Ministries provides wedding planning and officiating services through Island Pastor. Accordingly, our ministry is  committed to investing hope and life into every couple.

Those dollars, some are saying, will go toward the hiring of 87,000 new IRS agents.

As people of faith, we must be particularly concerned about Section 9 of  H.R. 5, which would deny all US citizens the protections of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Do you make $75,000 or less?” tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “Democrats’ new army of 87,000 IRS agents will be coming for you—with 710,000 new audits for Americans who earn less than $75k.” Richard Grenell, former Acting Director of National Intelligence, wrote on the social media platform: “The FBI raids Trump’s house and the Democrats vote to add 87,000 new IRS agents to go after Americans. Wake up, America.”  Read more.

One Nation Under God – Same Sex Marriages

What are God’s laws concerning homosexuality? God repeatedly propounded his laws upon Moses, who later wrote in the book of Leviticus (which literarily means “the law”) that:

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22;

If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death; their blood is upon them. Leviticus 20:13.

Sodom and Gomorrah were two legendary biblical cities destroyed by God for their populace practicing homosexuality. Their story parallels the Genesis flood narrative in its theme of God’s anger provoked by man’s sin (see Book of Genesis 19:1–28).  The word sodomy is derived from the word Sodom. Read more.

There are 12 things a church pastor cannot do—even though pastors are, in my judgment, amazing people. They faithfully serve Sunday after Sunday, often with no desire for recognition or fame. In faith, they can do a lot—but here are several things pastors cannot do.

Pastor Bill Lucas —>

The 12 Things Pastors Cannot Do:

  1. Read minds. Everybody knows that, but many church members hold pastors accountable for unstated expectations.
  2. Be everywhere. No human being can be every place at once, yet some members still get angry when pastors have to say “No.”
  3. Change hearts. Only God can do that.
  4. Know everything. Most pastors study hard, but nobody can answer every question somebody asks.
  5. Please everybody. Even Jesus couldn’t do that.
  6. Live sinlessly. Nobody can. Including you. And me. We’re all sinners.
  7. Grow churches. If the church does grow, it’s because God does it.
  8. Multiply dollars.  Unfortunately God didn’t create money trees.
  9. Escape mistakes. All of us will mess up sometimes, often unintentionally and even unknowingly.
  10. Avoid favoritism. Pastors minister to everybody, but having better (and best) friends is natural.
  11. Reveal everything. No matter how much you may want to know the details, pastors may not be in a position to tell you.
  12. Ignore sin. Pastors must address this issue, even when it’s not popular.

There are a lot of other things I cannot do. However, what I can do is faithfully serve you, as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has commanded me to do.

Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve… 1Peter 5:2   How I can I serve you?  Contact Pastor Bill.
