Is God Moving You?

Is God Moving You? October 20, 2017 [I want to show how God desired that the earth be replenished with human beings (with people), and He made sure that that happened by scattering them to the four corners of the earth.] The Bible says the Lord created man. In Genesis 2:7: “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Genesis 1:26-30 says: “And God said,

Keeping the Pulpit Alive By Dr. Tolbert Moore 1990 In II Timothy, chapter 4, verses 1-3, we read: “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

Matthew 18:21-23 records this discourse between Jesus and Peter: Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto

A Charge to Keep

The Lord saved me at the age of twelve and has given me a wonderful life. God gave me Nellie Mae Burton, the best wife a man could possibly have, at the very time that I needed a wife.

God used some wonderful Christians to help me after the death of Nellie, just like He used

We hear much today about the Word of God, the commands of God, and the instructions from our Saviour, Jesus Christ. If something is a command of God– to disobey that command would be a sin. It has gotten to the place that many things which are sin and no longer considered sin. And then there are some things we call sin which really aren’t sin. The first and greatest commandment of the Lord, according to Jesus Christ, Himself, is found in chapter

A Simple, Unexpected Beginning

My family did not attend church regularly until I was 10 years old in 1939. We began attending church when we moved from Lakewood Heights in Atlanta to the farm. Life was simple on the farm.

Church was simple.  The country churches had preaching services once a  month.
