I think that most Christians stay quiet about their Faith, and we need to change that. I do understand that those who know me, know this is not a problem for me. However, this is where I will post the things that are on my mind
When I was growing up, most people realized how bad things had become in our country and thought it could not get worse.
Now 50 years later our country is much worse . . . Things ridiculed just a few decades ago, are now becoming the norm fighting to force homosexuality into marriage, gross immorality on TV, movies, radio, and even in public. God taken out of government, schools and public life.
America is a country which accepts and promotes people who try to force us to accept what we know is bad or wrong as being good.
Violent Islam promoted, and excused from their actions, and it is on the rise. Yet the love, passion and support of Christianity is "NOT" tolerated
Christians within the military who speak of their faith very soon could be prosecuted as enemies of the state. The evil forces are trying to force Christianity into the closet
We need to pray and to remind those who are not in church just how important Jesus is.
God is Love
God is Love, and we should celebrate it daily in public. Let me share something with you. Have you noticed when a team wins, somebody likes to do a victory dance.
When someone wins a trophy, they hold it up for everyone to see.
When a lady is engaged, she shows everyone her ring . . .
For those who have accepted the greatest gift ever offered "Jesus Christ" what public display is given? Dedication of our life to Christ; usually in a building, Baptism; usually in a building, Visitation; usually in a building, Worship and praise; usually in a building. What do you do in public to display your love for Jesus?
One of the things I do is on Monday morning, during rush hour I stand on side of the road with a sign that reads " Questions, Ask Me, Smile, Jesus Loves You. I smile and wave. . . for those who stop, I offer free hugs, prayers, answers, or just be a friend.
This is not to get people to our church, this is to tell people about Jesus. I would like to see every person who says they follow Christ to do something like this. . .
I am blessed every week for doing this. Please, share the love of Christ to those who may not go to a church building. You could do as I am or greet people outside a building or store, or have a Worship in a public place, just do something in public.
I ask that everyone join us for a National Prayer Day the first of every Month as we pray for our Nation, and for our World.
I would love to hear what you are doing in public, to show the love of Jesus. I look forward to your post, and you can e-mail me anytime.
God Bless, Bro Jay - Servant of Christ
National Prayer Day
I would like for you and everyone you know to join us the first of each month for a National Prayer Day as we pray for our Nation, and for our World. http://national-prayer-day.webs.com/
I hope everyone who reads this letter will think hard about what is written here and pray on it. We need to show the public the Love and Grace of Jesus, and most Americans seldom go into a church building anymore.
Thank you and God Bless, Pastor Jay Randolph, servant of Jesus
The end of the American Family
America has always been a Christian Nation and has done very well as a Christian Nation. However we have allowed the Federal Government to get out of control, and this may very well be the year they put an end to American Families.
On April 28, 2015 the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for and against redefining marriage in America. Though marriage between a man and a woman has existed since the beginning and is the cornerstone of ordered society, the time-honored institution is in serious trouble. Before federal judges began to overturn marriage laws, 30 states had protected natural marriage in their Constitutions. Now the High Court is poised to decide for us all.
LGBT Activists believe victory is at hand. From the firestorm over Indiana and now Arkansas, they sense blood in the water. They are on the offense and hope to quickly squash any opposition to their agenda, which is no longer simply legal recognition in the law but to silence people of faith from dissent and even force us to celebrate what God has clearly called sin.
If there was ever a time for the Church of the Lord Jesus to speak up lovingly but firmly for marriage, the family and our freedom, that time is now.
Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.

There are many reasons to have church in homes. Here are a few of the primary reasons:
1. Meeting in homes is Biblical.
2. The essence of Christianity is easily accomplished in simple and uncomplicated settings.
3. Group participation with all people having the opportunity to contribute to the meeting time if they want to should be the primary dynamic of any church meeting (1 Cor. Chapter 14),
4. Connecting with others and developing meaningful relationships is easily accomplished in a "living room atmosphere."
This is not a church, it is a part of The Church, just one part of the much larger Body of Christ.
And it is so good.
I wonder, how many others are tired?
How many others think worship is just a song you sing?
How many others need to leave their fancy clothes behind and just come as they are?
As I wonder, I am still so grateful because I am here, and I needed church
Just as so many do, to give up the obligation of duty
And just to come, experience Jesus, experience His Body, The Church.
The Home Churchis a biblical church
Churches that meet in homes are booming around the world. No wonder! They fill a room and then grow by starting another similar church. They are simple to begin and to function. They never have to worry about buildings, politics, salaries, maintenance, or complicated organizations. And anyone can do it. We are!! You can, too.
