Volume 2 | Issue 7 | September 2013

Welcome to The Encouragement Chronicles

The SEVENTH edition of The Encouragement Chronicles contains a whole new set of Series created since the release of the previous Chronicle which have me Encouraged!  This issue comes at a critical point and time for me in that I’ve been out of the hospital for 24 days today with NO headache.  While there are some challenges here and there, for the most part am doing well and have been able to generate seven (7) brand new Series, finish a few books and plan about twenty-one (21) New Series titles to share.  That is to add to the 118 other Series sites already available!

Will focus less on numbers this time around, rather focusing on how we see each other in light of our daily walk and relationships.  The strongest Relationship as Christians is the one with our Lord and Saviour, which when extended to all those that we know, meet and even greet will show through in our every action, word and emotion.

It has come to my attention that some folks just don’t want to read something this big – YES, this is the largest thing that I publish – but I sure would Encourage you to scroll through it to see if something catches your eye or your heart on the way to the bottom of it.

Just in time for Fall, the first four Background Series will be highlighted as the second Spotlight, which have been used as backgrounds  for ministry items around the globe.  Enjoy!

Hope you will be Encouraged by a few New Series and a highlight of a few more! REMEMBER: Share this Chronicle with someone you love and care for, it may be just what they need to be Encouraged.

Do remember this is the once a month, large issue if you will, showcase manner in which The Encouragement Chronicles highlights the goings on of things happening with DeliverTheWord.com. These editions will naturally be larger providing everyone with a power packed collection new items to learn about and see how they have been used!

DESIGN_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-Hebrews10-24-Verse-600p

Series Showcase | Consider One Another

Website | http://delivertheword.com/consideroneanother

As this Series has been in the developing stages, so many things have come to mind – some of which have been good things and other which have not been such good as I’d like.  The statement which came to mind over and over again in the study and preparation time is the following:

DESIGN_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-ConsiderOneAnotherLogo-200p

The blue words are taken from the Scriptures in Hebrews 10:24, although those weren’t the first words originally started with for this Series.  With careful review, the “Be of Good Courage” turned into something different – which settled me on the “consider one another“.  That original verse of Scripture is important for us to review, to examine while it may not be first, it is a VERY important to be included – it follows:

“They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage.”
Isaiah 41:6 | King James Version

The challenge for me is the consideration of distance – everyone helped his neighbor with the admonishing of “Be of good courage” – right where they were.  Unfortunately as a society at large, we are removed from the focus on family, friends and neighbors like we were when I was a kid – for they were our society, in rural Kentucky (USA).  Now we travel so much to get where we are going and the people we spend time with are often more miles apart than we may realize.

01-ConsiderOneAnotherTheme_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-135 02-Hebrews10-23_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-135 03-Hebrews10-25_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-135 04-Isaiah41-6_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-135 05-IThessalonians5-11_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-135

The second thought about the verse in this preliminary image for this Series are the black lettered words “meeting together” & “encouraging” – which is to be applied to all that we are around to form the complete action of:

“consider meeting together, one encouraging another”

We should think about, focus on and take time to pray for those people we are around and what impact our lives are making on them, their family and the relationship they have with Christ.  That should ring true whether that is at our homes, at the grocery store, at work, at play, at church…  We can have that “consider” factor, which I’m challenged to remember will come about from our Relationship with our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.  The more like Him we become, the more consideration we will have for those around us and the time we spend with them.

06-Romans1-9_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-135 07-Hebrews3-12_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-135 08-Hebrews3-13_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-135 09-Ecclesiasties4-9_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-135 10-IICorinthians1-2_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-135

We will, almost by not even noticing it because of how natural it will come, experience the way we “consider” others as Christ would have us do so by having that right Relationship with Him.  Let us look at that verse again:

“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:”
Hebrews 10:24 | King James Version

By our focus on others, we could actually be the catalyst for others showing love and doing things which are good works as unto the Lord!  That little verse just became a BIG action item and a promising reward for us doing what we ought to do.  Oh what a tender love we can have towards those who may just need to have someone spend a little time with them and who is willing to share with them how the Holy Spirit has worked in us to do something for others for God’s Glory and to Lift Up Christ.

Consider these thoughts from eleven (11) wonderful verses of Scripture:

01-ConsiderOneAnotherTheme_ConsiderOneAnother_8x10L_v1_04-Preview
  1. Consider One Another
  2. The Profession of our Faith
  3. Exhorting One Another
  4. Be of Good Courage
  5. Edify One Another
  6. Serve With My Spirit
  7. Take Heed
  8. Exhort One Another
  9. Have a Good Reward
  10. Grace Be To You
  11. Blessed Be God
1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

We have the opportunity and responsibility to Encourage others beyond the world’s definition of self-esteem and believing in one’s self – you and I have not only the Word of God, but access into the very Throne Room of Heaven to the Author of Faith, the One who Paid for us to have it and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to guide us.  Consider One Another, by Meeting Together and Encouraging!

Series Spotlight | Renewing Of The Inner Man

Website | http://delivertheword.com/renewingoftheinnerman

Over the years have heard so many times about folks who are just “worn out” or get “burned out” on the ministry, but rarely does that phrase get applied to a mass group of folks who really exhibit the tendency. Those people are “Christians” in general if you will, who may have never really gotten plugged in to a solid body of Believers. You and I may see or hear of it as many things, including the following:

06-ShallBeTheCovenant_RenewingOfTheInnerMan_8x10L_v1_01-Preview
  • Just don’t have time to read the Bible with all my other stuff
  • Might as well not read that old thing, don’t understand it anyway
  • Got Saved, I’m Good and have my ticket
  • We use to go when we had more time
  • Getting everyone up and ready so early on Sunday is just too much
  • After the kids were up and grown, we didn’t see the need
  • Who needs that stuff, we are doing just as well as anyone that goes to that church
1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

How many more could we add to the list – certain there would be pages… What all of those have in common, is all of them are outward appearances, not an inward inspection. In order to “Renew”, there must be something that is used to refresh, restore and reactivate from the inside so it SHOWS up on the outside. It is a process of Encouragement and being changed by the inner working of the Holy Spirit through God’s Word. It is the process of edification and understanding what God the Father has for us, what the Lord Jesus Christ Redeemed us to have the opportunity to be and what the Holy Spirit guides as we are being each day.

Artwork_RenewingOfTheInnerMan_8x10L_v1_01-IICorinthians4-16-Black-600p

Enlightenment | The Most Dangerous Burning Out

Some folks would think that the word “Edification” and “Enlightenment” mean the same thing. They are NOT anywhere close on the spectrum of meaning of the renewal process. In Buddhism, it is the “awakening to ultimate truth by which man is freed from the endless cycle of personal reincarnations”. For Hinduism, it is the state of transcendent divine experience – the ultimate goal of all religion. Philosophically, it was started as a moment stressing the importance of reason, innovations and the critical re-appraising of existing ideas and social institutions of the times. Edification is more tightly aligned with Spiritual improvement and learning based upon teaching from God’s Word.

Artwork_RenewingOfTheInnerMan_8x10L_v1_01-ByHisSpirit-Title-400p

While there were positive things borne out of the Enlightening times, which would include the propagation of the Word of God to the world, the focus was mainly centered on the individual, while removing the Bible. It is amazing to me that folks will do more for a “religion” in the many steps required, but do not consider that what the Lord really wants is a Relationship than a followship. To boot, He gives us all the Instructions and Tools to make it happen – the Word of God, the Holy Spirit, Spiritual Gifts and Talents.

  • The closer we walk with Him, the more we will talk to Him.
  • The more we talk to Him, the more we will be like Him.
  • The more we are like Him, the renewal process becomes a daily part of our lives.

Just a little talk with Jesus… made me whole… makes it right… We indeed an be Renewed Day By Day.  Here are the titles of the nine (9) prints for this Series:

  1. Day By Day
  2. In Earthen Vessels
  3. Not Destroyed
  4. By His Spirit
  5. Delight In The Law
  6. Shall Be The Covenant
  7. The Candle Of The Lord
  8. Thy Salvation
  9. To The Heart

Refreshing to know that while we may wear out on the outside and even be weary, our Spirit can be refreshed daily and we can walk, talk, do for the Lord as He provides – always…

Welcome to The Encouragement Chronicles

The SIXTH edition of The Encouragement Chronicles contains some interesting facts and statistics which have me Encouraged!  Listed in the following two tables are just the Facebook tracking numbers shared with a friend within the last week.

Facebook | Where About the Globe Are People Accessing?

USA Bosnia & Herzegovina Brazil Canada France Honduras
Hong Kong Indonesia Japan Lebanon Moldova Panama
Philippines Romania South Africa Uganda United Kingdom

Facebook | Where About the United States are People Accessing?

Alabama Florida Indiana New York North Carolina Ohio
South Carolina Tennessee Virginia Wisconsin

After beginning to think the Global reach was doing well, the actual Website reports were reviewed with these findings:

Websites | Where About the Globe Are People Accessing?

Argentina Armenia Australia Belgium Bhutan
Bosnia-Herzegovina Brazil Canada Christmas Island Cyprus
Denmark Ecuador France Germany Hong Kong
Hungary India Indonesia Italy Japan
Jordan Kazakhstan Lithuania Malaysia Mexico
Moldavia Mongolia Netherlands New Zealand Nicaragua
Norway Pakistan Peru Philippines Poland
Portugal Romania Russian Federation Seychelle Singapore
Slovenia South Africa South Korea Spain Sweden
Switzerland Taiwan Thailand Turkey Ukraine
United Arab Emirates United Kingdom USA USA Government USA Military

Notice that the “golden” countries match the Facebook utilization/access as well on thirteen (13) accounts.  Here comes the the most important statistic of all, this year 64,803 people have accessed the Websites – not hits, but actual sessions, people on machines, accessing the DeliverTheWord.com suite of tools.  The hits registration is into the millions, yes 1,000,000’s of them because that counts the every element on a page, whether that be text, a image, a button or anything else – which is not as statistically important, although some folks really pay attention to it.  There are people who have been influenced by a Family Ministry Website of photos enhanced by God’s Word in fifty-seven (57) countries around the world – fifty-six (56) outside the USA.  It is much more time consuming to figure out where people inside the USA come from, so that statistic is not being presented in this update.

Well worth the effort I’d say – how about you???  Will you help us continue to expand both here in our own city, state, country and into the rest of the known world?  Share a favorite image or Series with someone, so they can be Encouraged too.

Hope you will be Encouraged by a few New Series and a highlight of a few more! REMEMBER: Share this Chronicle with someone you love and care for, it may be just what they need to be Encouraged.

Do remember this is the once a month, large issue if you will, showcase manner in which The Encouragement Chronicles highlights the goings on of things happening with DeliverTheWord.com. These editions will naturally be larger providing everyone with a power packed collection new items to learn about and see how they have been used!

WhyDoYouBelieveWhatYouBelieve_8x10L_v1_04-Logo200p

Series Showcase | Why Do You BELIEVE What You BELIEVE?

Website | http://delivertheword.com/whydoyoubelievewhatyoubelieve

From a Christian’s perspective, have an interesting question to pose in today’s world of ever changing answers, seriously… Why Do You Believe What You Believe? Am finding more and more people are so quick to say they believe “this” or “that” because “someone else says so”. Very few people have ever said to me “because the Bible says so” or “I believe that the Holy Spirit has convicted me” of this or that. A little more digging often yields a philosophy of doing what a parent, grandparent or close family friend has “always done it this way and I don’t see any need to change it”.

Looked at several books on the subject as this Series was being researched, which even further puzzled me. They were either so stiff as to not even present something spiritually possible or so lax as to define a system of beliefs from a worldly perspective which were even MORE crazy to the far LEFT of center. Then of course, THE BOOK was referenced unto the inside of It’s covers a LOOK, the answer was found in a most Encouraging manner.

Fifteen Scripture References

There is a primary image which shares “By Faith” and then an additional fourteen (14) supporting images with Scriptures to Encourage we as Christians to be able to share with others Why we Believe What we do! Those include:

What This Series is NOT

This Series is NOT a Theological debate or an Apologetics study, rather it is a presentation of Bible Scripture references to help each of us as Christians to have a number of reminders of “why” we believe what we believe. Each of us should have direct biblical knowledge of Scripture to answer not only those day to day challenges we are presented with from all directions, but also actual reference information that we go directly, to show others where we get it from as a matter of witness, as well as, confirmation.

06-ByGrace_WhyDoYouBelieveWhatYouBelieve_8x10L_v1_04-135 07-ByHearing_WhyDoYouBelieveWhatYouBelieve_8x10L_v1_04-135 08-ByHeart_WhyDoYouBelieveWhatYouBelieve_8x10L_v1_04-135 09-ByHisName_WhyDoYouBelieveWhatYouBelieve_8x10L_v1_04-135 10-ByLove_WhyDoYouBelieveWhatYouBelieve_8x10L_v1_04-135

Those “putting a finger on it” moments can be a very power motivator for sharing with someone our Faith in Christ. You and I can have a rock solid reason and reasoning for doing what we do for our Creator God, by example of our Lord Jesus Christ, displaying the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in Temple which we are of the Living God.

Let us each live in such a manner that each of these verses will be taken as the Gospel in our own lives and understood to be what are living out each and every day.

Series Spotlight | Lessons From Job

Website | http://delivertheword.com/lessonsfromjob

This very touching and very specifically designed series of prints are special for a number of reasons.  First off, the person who preached the sermons with these headings, just so happens to have been my Youth Director/Pastor from Union Chapel Free Will Baptist Church while attending the 9th and 10th grades at Chocowinity High School.  Yes – Chocowinity is spelled correctly… Rev. Jeff Jones is the Pastor of Hilltop Church in Fuquay-Varina (again, that is a correct spelling for those that are not in this neck of the woods).  He knows personally about “seeing things in perspective”, as rough waters have been found his way, giving a “birds-eye perspective” with each of these prints.

Secondly, this very first print (found on this Web page) was designed and given to a VERY dear Brother of a Brother in our ministry. Bro. Bert (the dear Brother) was an outstanding and gifted viewer of perspective…  Each of the series normally starts with a person in mind, as did this one, but as one begins to understand the “why” it is special, that’s when your heart is going to get changed.  You see Bro. Bert died from Prostate Cancer and this one was the print that came directly from me to him.  Even to the last, Bro. Bert kept an eye and heart on God’s perspective.

Our daughter helped with the image choice, which was taken at the JC Raulston Arboretum on the campus of NC State University (for those of you that know me, my Purple and Gold representing East Carolina University has NOT run anywhere).  As blue colors of things were being flipped through, she stopped me at this blue one, exclaiming that it looked like doves hovering around something.  At first, didn’t want to use the photo because of the “imperfection” in one of the petals, which is where from the mouth of babes things come “but Daddy, we are not perfect and that dove right there IS Bro. Bert, they are hovering around because he is getting fixed” – talk about touching…

Bro. Bert was so appreciative and kind with the gesture of appreciation and kindness when receiving his print – for he had been faithful to pray for an item close to my heat, letting me know periodically that he was still doing so.  After explaining the circle of doves and the color blue (pink just didn’t seem to suit him well…), remember him being taken in by the statement as he read it several times – glancing at it over and over and saying yes with each returned look.

A Slightly Different Direction

The set of prints originally started as four (4) images, with of course “Wonderful” in blue, but there are actually 3 sets of them, with the same layout, just different photos.  The following is a list of words in which the prints were built:

  • Wonderful
  • Separation
  • Forgive
  • Decisions

 

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Life is much of what we make of it, which these four prints with a pointed set of stated FACTS, is a fantastic reminder of the four guard posts we should have established in our lives. The reference is an entire book of the Bible: JOB, which is where this series got the name – “Lessons from Job – By Jeff Jones”.  For me it is important, so important in fact that these prints hang in my office, just above my desk to daily remind me of them, should they be even for a moment tucked away in my mind.

Getting Them Into Someone’s Hands

After trying unsuccessfully several times to get the finished set of original prints to Bro. Jeff, finally decided to give them to Hilltop Church’s Youth Pastor to give to Bro. Jeff in hopes that Ms. Rose, Bro. Jeff’s wife, would want to hang them.  From my understanding… They hang in Bro. Jeff’s office – mission accomplished!

The Prints Listed In Order

Each of the four points have a pointed statement boiled down into single words and then a wrapper of phrases is employed to captivate the viewers attention which are described in the following chart.:

  • Wonderful – God’s Wonderful Plan Is Only Wonderful Through His Perspective
  • Separation – Biblical Separation is Your Pathway to Closeness with Our God
  • Forgive – The Way to Forgive Others is the Way God Forgives Me
  • Decisions – Life is the Sum Total of Your Decisions, Every Choice Must Matter

Series Spotlight | I’m Not Going To Go

Website | http://delivertheword.com/imnotgoingtogo

This Series has been nine (9) months in the making for several reasons – (1) it is an odd size, which presents a challenge on how to print them and (2) wanted to consider again how we can have the same response that Moses did for ourselves, our families, our church. An interesting quote grab from Matthew Henry set in motion the purposed delay, it follows:

Matthew Henry’s Commentary On The Whole Bible

“Note, God’s special presence with us in this wilderness, by his Spirit and grace, to direct, defend, and comfort us, is the surest pledge of his special love to us and will redound to his glory as well as our benefit.” (speaking/writing on Exodus 33:16 | King James Version)

We can purpose in our hearts in our daily walk with the LORD to only GO where He Leads, instead of going wherever we want and then think we can “justify” it by asking the LORD to come to where each of us are already.  The statement made by our Pastor (Sermon from October 24, 2012, entitled “A Meeting With The LORD”) is this:

Statement Which Is Basis For This Series

“I’m Not Going To Go If You Don’t Go With Me”

Moses wanted to see God’s Glory in Exodus 33:20 “I beseech Thee, show me Thy Glory” to the point he was willing to do all the things Commanded of Him.  Moses was persistent in his asking how it would be known that His people had “found grace” in the Sight of the Sustaining God.  He further entreats the LORD as he promises to make all his “goodness pass before” Him, that he would “proclaim the name of the LORD” before Him, being also Gracious and showing Mercy to all those who should be.

ImNotGoingToGoIfYouDontGoWithMe_v1_30-Emerald-48x12-600p

His persistence was rewarded on the LORD’s terms – Moses would be allowed to “see” God’s Glory from behind, as “shall no man see Me, and live” was told him.  The LORD indicated a place where Moses would be protected, giving him instruction of where to stand, the expectation of when it would take place and what he would be allowed to see.

ImNotGoingToGoIfYouDontGoWithMe_v1_30-White-48x12-600p

What an absolute PROMISE is presented to us for our benefit – we have to be reminded that we have found Grace in God’s Sight and that He knows our name.

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Instructions For Each of Us Today

Would we be so bold as to ask God the Father to show us His Glory? Are we willing to seek Him where we would ask to look upon His Splendor and Magnificence? Will we be willing to seek out His Divine Presence, such that we might be an Honor to Him and make Known His Gracious Provision for all that will “Follow” Him?

ImNotGoingToGoIfYouDontGoWithMe_v1_30-SapphireBlue-600p

We can have that Reassurance and be given Encouragement, by sincerely seeking the LORD’s direction in each area of our lives, not wanting to go anywhere without our Heavenly Father.  Moses point blank asked the One and True God of Creation to show him the Way.  By our prayer, we can be quickened, to be ready to go wherever the LORD leads, all the while refusing to go to or thru those places where He says not to go.

ImNotGoingToGoIfYouDontGoWithMe_v1_30-Artwork-ScriptureAlone-600p

While we do not have the “pillar of smoke” or “cloud” as Moses did in his day, we do have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to guide us.  Knowing what the LORD has done, as in our reading of the Holy Scriptures, will help us to better know what can be asked for, which also gives us the foundation of where to start.

ImNotGoingToGoIfYouDontGoWithMe_v1_30-Copper-48x12-600p

Are we humbled, dedicated and seeking in a manner that we can, along with Moses of old, ask to see God’s Glory?  Will we keep approaching the Throne Room of Heaven until we get an answer as to what we should each do, go, say, consume, refrain from, look upon, touch and run away from?  We can, Moses did – and He GOT what he ASKED of the LORD!

Welcome to The Encouragement Chronicles

The FIFTH edition of The Encouragement Chronicles for 2013 is a tad bit delayed, but that certainly doesn’t mean that work has been any less moving or busily prepared. The past several months have been tough for me personally, and in a business sense, as the door of one opportunity closed, with it also went a piece of my heart.  One of the  items put upon my pathway is the following, which is a “walking example” of this Family Ministry:

PREFACE in your heart EVERYTHING you SAY or WRITE with I LOVE YOUWRITTEN IN RED

Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ did just that, He paid for the Word we have in our seeing, reading and hearing, with His Blood.  That very thing begs the question “What is it that You Speak?”…

There are going to be some changes for DeliverTheWord.com and the tools being used to communicate.  Several on-line tools by other companies and groups have suffered some setbacks, one of the most difficult is Fotomoto, the site used for Greeting Cards and Sales.  Not sure all that will be involved as they have shut down the ordering side of their business.  That tool is rather unique, as it combined several sites together, which allowed for seamless integration of the tools to send and order in the same place. Hundreds of hours worth of work was performed getting that site alone to work with the sheer volume of images – it is a BIG prayer item

On a positive note, Flickr has just been updated and contains nearly the full catalog of photos/images available on DeliverTheWord.com Websites.  The logo will begin appearing throughout The Encouragement Chronicles as it will be updated to include all new and updated Series as they are developed.

Hope you will be Encouraged by a few New Series and a highlight of a few more! REMEMBER: Share this Chronicle with someone you love and care for, it may be just what they need to be Encouraged.

Do remember this is the once a month, large issue if you will, showcase manner in which The Encouragement Chronicles highlights the goings on of things happening with DeliverTheWord.com. These editions will naturally be larger providing everyone with a power packed collection new items to learn about and see how they have been used!

Use e-Courage | FREE E-mail Card System of Any Image [SUSPENDED]

With each Issue of The Encouragement Chronicles want to challenge each of us to share the Ministry of Encouragement with others. As we seek to honor, magnify and lift up the name of Jesus Christ, we need your HELP! Please consider helping us cast the net as wide as your sphere of influence. The people you influence are not going to be reached by us in or of ourselves, we don’t know who those folks are! But you do know who they are – and – you are more likely to know what area they need to be Encouraged.

DESIGN--Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_02-ThereforeLogo-Clr-600p

Series Showcase | I Will Look and Wait

Website | http://delivertheword.com/lookandwait

This Series began as a challenge presented to our fellas in our Men’s Prayer Time on Saturday evenings. To be honest with myself, God the Father and everyone, Micah was a book read through several times as part of reading the entire Bible over the past couple of years — nothing stuck out to me either time… This time it has been different because it was presented in the following manner…

 01-InTheMorning-Look-Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_06-135 02-SeekGod-Look-Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_06-135 03-MineAffliction-Look-Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_06-135  04-HeBeholdeth-Look-Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_06-135 05-FromThePlace-Look-Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_06-135

Place yourself all those years ago, the time and period that these Scriptures were written, Micah the Prophet was in the exact same type of irreverent society that we find ourselves in today. This Series has bite to it, so be careful to understand where we are today as a society and Believers. The first seven verses of Chapter 7 record for us the following realities shared in both times being considered, then and now:

8x10 Landscape
  1. Looking for something once available, now not there
  2. Traps are commonplace in daily life
  3. People making decisions based on reward, not standards
  4. Every day activities have repercussions, cause pain
  5. Internal turmoil drives people not to rely on or trust family
  6. We make enemies of our own households

 

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Then we come to verse seven (7) of Micah 7, which states:

“Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.” Micah 7:7 | King James Version

Micah using the word “will” said, he would “look unto the LORD”, “wait for the God of my Salvation” and “God will hear me”. He said then what we should be saying now EVEN stronger, I know what He did, my God can hear me and I know that Someone who can do something about it! Oh how many times have we left God out of the picture until we are in such a predicament that we have now where else to turn? Would not it have been much easier and more simple if we’d have gone to Him FIRST when we realized that it was a challenge or problem bigger than we are?

06-Return-Look-Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_06-135 07-ShallYield-Look-Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_06-135 08-OrderMySteps-Look-Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_06-135 09-Possible-Look-Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_06-135 10-Eternal-Look-Micah7-7_LookAndWait_8x10L_v1_06-135

Because of what I know about God the Father, the relationship so graciously and mercifully granted by the Lord Jesus Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we can indeed put a “Therefore” in front of all three of those statements, knowing they are TRUE and RIGHT and POWERFUL. Indeed we can “look unto the LORD”, “wait for the God of my Salvation” and that “God will hear me” as a child of the King! What an AWESOME promise that we as Christians need to rekindle within and a INCREDIBLE challenge for us to put forth before a lost and dying world that has NO idea what the Bible is “there-fore”!!!

Each of the three statements taken from Micah 7:7 | KJV contain 14 prints designed for each.

  • I Will Look Unto The Lord
  • I Will Wait For The God Of My Salvation
  • My God Will Hear Me

Scripture from Micah

“The first seven (7) verses from Micah 7 serve as the basis for this Series

  1. “Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grapegleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit.” Micah 7:1 | King James Version
  2. “The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.” Micah 7:2 | King James Version
  3. “That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.” Micah 7:3 | King James Version
  4. “The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity.” Micah 7:4 | King James Version
  5. “Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.” Micah 7:5 | King James Version
  6. “For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.” Micah 7:6 | King James Version
  7. “Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.” Micah 7:7 | King James Version

I Will Look Unto The LORD | Previous Shown Images

An incredible bouquet of yellow and white roses was the object of my photography obsession with this shoot, of course added to that was one of the Gerber daisies.

NOTE: All of the photography presented in this section of this Series is the work of William A. Turner, taken at the Somerset Place, at my wife’s niece Shelby and Corey Jolly’s wedding in Creswell Somerset Plantation in Creswell, North Carolina.

There are fourteen (14) images in this first set of prints, comprised of wedding flowers, which will help as we take a look at the images chosen for each verse of Scripture.

I Will Wait for the God of My Salvation

An incredible burst of purple of the Clematis was the object of my initial photography obsession with this shoot, of course added to that was one of the gorgeous Azaleas.

Series Spotlight | Every Other Word

Website | http://delivertheword.com/everyotherword

This Series is one that has been sitting before me for a bit of time, brought to mind by several men, but most pointedly by an individual who has quite a few more miles down the road than I do. As is often the case, needed a set images to match the Series, which is where this first image comes into the picture. Needed something strong, bold and attention getting – for the first verse of Scripture in this Series is BOLD:
01-36179_EveryOtherWord_Word_Reference_8x10L_v1_04-Preview

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”
Psalm 51:10 | King James Version

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Very clearly identified in verses 10 through 17 came eight phrases, that as they were considered formed and every other word structure that follows right through with the removal of a, an, the, etc. for keyword sequencing! For example, with verse 10:

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Am not trying to change the Bible here at all – but making it personal does this to it:

Create my heart, God; renew my spirit.

In essence that is exactly what we are asking Him to do, to Create our Hearts – both yours and mine! Talk about JUMP off the page, a crying David over his GROSS sin against His God, gives us a really CLEAR understanding of David’s desire to be close to the God of All Creation. In asking God to create his heart, it is already known that what was being asked for was a heart of wanting to be perfect before His LORD.

8x10 Landscape 8x10 Landscape 03-36091_EveryOtherWord_Word_Reference_8x10L_v1_04-135 04-36234_EveryOtherWord_Word_Reference_8x10L_v1_04-135

The eight verses clearly present these “every other word” combos:

  • Create and Renew
  • Presence and Spirit
  • Restore and Uphold
  • Teach and Convert
  • Deliver and Sing
  • Open and Shew
  • Sacrifice and Offering
  • Broken and Contrite

While the images are one thing for this Series, my challenge to you is to see the Every Other Word challenge presented in this passage of Scripture – it is just simply amazing… May each one of us be willing to follow David’s footsteps in getting before the Throne of Glory in asking the God of Glory for forgive us each and rebuild us daily into what He would have us be! It is in us that are the World to be His mouthpiece and our actions, doings, goings… are what they really hear.

Scripture Verses

There are eight verses of Scripture focused upon in this Series, Psalm 51:10-17 | KJV. It is a cry out to the God of All Creation by David in realization of what he had done in His sight and David’s wanting to make things right.

  1. “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” | Psalm 51:10 | King James Version
  2. “Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.” | Psalm 51:11 | King James Version
  3. “Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” | Psalm 51:12 | King James Version
  4. “Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.” | Psalm 51:13 | King James Version
  5. “Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.” | Psalm 51:14 | King James Version
  6. “O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.” | Psalm 51:15 | King James Version
  7. “For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.” | Psalm 51:16 | King James Version
  8. “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.” | Psalm 51:17 | King James Version

The Refrain is as follows:

Oh! to be like Thee, oh! to be like Thee,
Blessed Redeemer, pure as Thou art;
Come in Thy sweetness, come in Thy fullness;
Stamp Thine own image deep on my heart.

This is my constant longing and prayer;
Gladly I’ll forfeit all of earth’s treasures,
Jesus, Thy perfect likeness to wear.

Verse 2 | Oh! to Be Like Thee

Oh! to be like Thee, full of compassion,
Loving, forgiving, tender and kind,
Helping the helpless, cheering the fainting,
Seeking the wand’ring sinner to find.

Verse 3 | Oh! to Be Like Thee

Oh! to be like Thee, lowly in spirit,
Holy and harmless, patient and brave;
Meekly enduring cruel reproaches,
Willing to suffer, others to save.

Verse 4 | Oh! to Be Like Thee

Oh! to be like Thee, Lord, I am coming,
Now to receive th’ anointing divine;
All that I am and have I am bringing,
Lord, from this moment all shall be Thine.

Oh! to be like Thee, while I am pleading,
Pour out Thy Spirit, fill with Thy love,
Make me a temple meet for Thy dwelling,
Fit me for life and Heaven above.

Series Spotlight | The Four See’s

Website | http://delivertheword.com/thefoursees

Cannot tell you how many times as a youngster that the phrase “There are always two sides to every coin, so that means William Allen, there are two sides to the story you are telling…” was “brought” to my attention.  Imagine that?  Well, for those that know me well, a chuckle was just let out and for the others – what can I say…  I’ve always loved a good “story”…

As we ponder the possibilities of this thought, there are actually three sides to every coin -and- three sides to every story.  For the coin, it is front, back and rim, whereas for the story, it is mine, yours and what actually happened.  The tendency in human nature is to favor whichever one serves us at the moment we find ourselves.  People can “see” the side we are on much more clearly than we think they can, through our actions, words, goings and even in what we are silent over.  The cliché ”actions speak louder than words” comes to mind and is a basis for this thought being presented in this “See” manner.

The Four See’s should cause people to take a second or third look at this Series, for we have the cliche of “the four C’s” in diamonds which represents:

  • carat – the points in weight the diamond weighs
  • cut – gives the diamond it’s brilliance
  • color – determines what light is reflected by the diamond
  • clarity – represents the flaws found in the diamond and the obstruction they cause to light

Most individuals would think that list of “diamond” C’s goes from most important to least important, where in actuality it is the exact reverse.  Most people pay attention to how “large” something is as they assign value to the prominence that the object represents.  Those items that are more readily seen by the naked eye are given more weight that the ones that are unseen.

The Four See’s for this Series are the following:

01-XSi37046-Hydrangea_TheFourSees_8x10_v1_01-RGBIII-Preview
  1. Consideration – serious thought, having regard, taking notice of an action, all with a reason to have the right motive in doing an action as unto the Lord.
  2. Consultation – seeking out of another for other opinions, counsel and advice, where a mutual and honest deliberation occurs for the matter of service of the King.
  3. Collaboration  – stepping in the direction of working with others in a manner that jointly fosters harmony and service because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
  4. Consecration – separating from the World’s way of doing things to dedicate ourselves to Serving and Worshiping God while living the Christian life.
1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Just as with the “Four C’s” in the diamond classification process, these Four See’s are also in reverse.  We will ONLY do things for God the Father and keep doing them according to His Grace, Mercy and Power, if we address the first thing with fourth See and work backwards.  Take a look at them: separate, step, seek and be serious.  They will fall into order totally OPPOSITE of what the world would have us believe.

OH what a lesson to learn and excitement to realize that while my desire is to get you to “See” what and how the world looks at us, it is MORE important for us to “See” like the Master wants us to do so!  Before we EVER do something for the God of all Creation, we NEED to be in full communication with Him – trust you me, the world will know that we have been.  There will be NO way to hide it!

Series Showcase | Reminders and Influences

Website | http://delivertheword.com/remindersandinfluences

The challenge for today, with a group which can be identified with high regard, is about who we Remind each other of and the Influences we have on other people. Those two words are the focus (1) Reminders – those who have impacted, changed, enhanced us and (2) Influences – the flowing from us into others as God the Holy Spirit has allowed the waters of His Holiness within each of us as Christians. The realization that is desired to be conveyed today is that no matter where you are in your Christian walk, having NO consideration of your age or any apparent difficulty experienced, we have the ability and responsibility to share Jesus Christ the Saviour with all whom we have the opportunity.
XSi27695_Rivers_RemindersAndInfluences_8x10L-v1_05-Preview

“In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”
John 7:37-38 | King James Version

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

This verse shows us that once we have Believed on Jesus Christ as our Saviour, as the Scripture has said (God’s Word), then everything that we do should flow out of us as unto the Lord.

“For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.” Romans 14:8 | King James Version

This Series looks at the life of Timothy, that we might see both the Reminders and the Influences that Paul the Apostle had upon him throughout Timothy’s life. But before we look at those, we need to carefully consider three words from the verse above, “unto the Lord/LORD.” That tied in with John 7:37 and 38 above, gives us a picture of what Christ would have each of us to do – every thing that we do should have the tell-tale sign of being done as though it were being done for/to the Saviour directly. Others should be able to tell the difference between how the world reacts and how we act towards others – especially when we think no one is looking – God the Father is always looking, the Son of God our Saviour is always present and the Holy Spirit resides in us as we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit. Bearing in mind that thought, we are never alone…

XSi27695_Rivers_RemindersAndInfluences_8x10L-v1_05-135 XSi27702_WeAreTheLords_RemindersAndInfluences_8x10L-v1_05-135 XSi27781_Unfeigned_RemindersAndInfluences_8x10L-v1_05-135 XSi27718_Partakers_RemindersAndInfluences_8x10L-v1_05-135

Remembrance

A couple of statistics for the word Remembrance:

  • 54 Times in OT (31) and NT (23)
  • Mentioned in concert with Praying

The following areas are the specific reminders we will be looking at in this Series:

  • Rivers of Living Water
  • We Are the Lord’s
  • The Unfeigned Faith
  • Partakers of My Grace
  • Ye Endured
  • In Remembrance
  • Grace Be Unto You
  • Shall Not Be Moved

Each of these areas occurred at various stages in the peoples lives throughout the Bible, from the very young to the more Senior Saints, either individually, as a family or as a group of people.

Influences

This second piece of Reminders and Influences focuses on the lasting impact we have on others, by every facet and moment we are around them.

Where We Each Are In Life

Probably the most identifiable recount from the Scriptures for the group in which I find myself speaking in front of (Seniors Group at our Church), would have to be II Timothy 1:1-18 | KJV, zeroing in on verse five (5). This letter was written by Paul the Apostle to Timothy with a recount of the Faith which was being spoken of having a heritage or lineage from his Grandmother Lois and Mother Eunice. Paul was persuaded of this as he had God’s knowledge of being a great Joy to him personally. Think about it – Ms. Lois and Ms. Eunice have their names written down for all Eternity because of the Influence they had been to and for their Young Timothy.

“When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.” II Timothy 1:5 | King James Version

In this Passage of Scripture we have some other identifying remarks as well…

  • Paul could not get around as easily as he used to be able.
  • Paul was writing to him, not going to see him himself.
  • Others had to come see Paul on their time.
  • Paul was having to rely on Memory of a time gone by.
  • Paul recalled tough times for Timothy.
  • Paul Encouraged Timothy with Recounts of Successes.

Each one of YOU (Seniors Group at our Church) have an incredible ability to influence those of us that have come behind you – there are younger couples that need to see you, talk to you, be around you. There are teens and even younger kids that need to have the influence of those that have traveled a far piece down the road than they have. YOU (Seniors Group at our Church) are NOT done yet. Philippians 1:7 | KJV

“Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.” Philippians 1:7 | King James Version

Each of you have accounts that we will never have the influence of, but by and through what you share with us. Hebrews 10:31-32 | KJV

“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;” Hebrews 10:31-32 | King James Version

Unfortunately, we today do not know of the real struggle of what it is like to start a NEW Church from the meager means of a shoestring and a prayer. We also are unaware of the influences that others had on your lives which have helped you to get to where you are today.

Influence

A couple of statistics for the word Influence:

  • 1 time as standard word (Job 38:31)
  • 70 times as overflow, flowing, flow, flowed (Exodus to II Peter)

Oh how we need a few Paul’s in our day, who are will to invest their lives into the generation(s) following them, such that each of us would know and understand the struggles of yesteryear. Having the Courage to make that Investment and then taking the time to Encourage those same individuals is exactly what Paul did with young Timothy. Each of you should be the Paul’s of today and I should faithfully be the Timothy for both today and tomorrow, should the Lord tarry.

Series Spotlight | He Is Able

Website | http://delivertheword.com/heisable

The Easter statement:

Today is Friday, Sunday is Coming…

is one that has stuck with me, typically given on Good Friday. But there is a statement that has grown to mean much more to me in my private time with the Lord:

This IS what I NEEDED!

Amazing to me how a passage of Scripture can come to mean different things at different times and situations in our lives. The challenge given to us as men on the Saturday night before Easter Sunday was centered around the following verse:

01-X11381_HeIsAble_8x10L_v1_06-Preview

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”
Ephesians 3:20-21 | King James Version

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

The reminder to us is that we needed, to remember WHO is responsible for ANYTHING that we DO for the Lord – it is given to us in the verses above – “according to the power that worketh in us…” It is NOT we ourselves that do anything worthy of Praise, Honor or Glory, it is the Holy Spirit that worketh in us that accomplishes His Work. How is that so and how much can we accomplish for Him?

01-X11381_HeIsAble_8x10L_v1_06-135 02-X10601_HeIsAble_8x10L_v1_06-135 03-X10623_HeIsAble_8x10L_v1_06-135 04-X10321_HeIsAble_8x10L_v1_06-135

He is Able

First we have to understand that He is Able! God the Father wants us to accomplish the Work of His Son Jesus Christ through His people, but we must first realize that it is Him that is able to do so, not we of ourselves. What are we capable of doing? That question is answered for us in three stages illustrated in this verse of Scripture following “to do”.

We can clearly see that it comes in three levels in what “we ask or think”. First He states:

Above All

meaning just what it says – above all, it is not a matter of how much we know, how much we have done for Him or where we have been – He simply states ABOVE all, no matter how much has been asked before by anyone.

The second level of what “we ask or think” is the following:

Abundantly

A definition of abundantly from Websters 1828 Dictionary lists it as an adverb, defined as Fully, Amply, Plentifully and in Sufficient Degree. He will supply that “above all” in a completeness that can only be explained by His Power and Provision, overflowing thus in a manner all others will clearly see it is not of our own accord.

The third level of what “we ask or think” is the following:

Exceedingly

Another definition researched in Websters 1828 Dictionary tells us that is is an adverb with the following meaning To A Very Great Degree, In a Degree Beyond What Is Usual, Greatly and Very Much. The degree in which His Power and Provision is made will be made in such a manner that is even further above abundance, going beyond even what we might have even had in our furthest hopes of being.

Artwork_HeIsAble_8x10L_v1_06-Sticker-ChristJesus-200p

Getting The Glory

How does He do that? Where does He show us in His Word that is so? The following seven (7) places are the specific verses utilized in this Series for each of us to discover how Able He IS!

  1. Ephesians 3:20-21
  2. Romans 14:4
  3. II Corinthians 9:8
  4. II Timothy 1:12
  5. Hebrews 2:18
  6. Hebrews 7:25
  7. Jude 1:24

How much will we let Him do? That is up to me and you…

Series Spotlight | In The Midst Of Conflict

Website | http://delivertheword.com/inthemidstofconflict

This VERY powerful Series is built upon a chapter of Scripture taken from Romans 5 | KJV – with a beginning which has four parts covering the first five verses. The four combinations are listed below so we can each see them as pieces of the part which will make up the foundation for this Series.

“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:” “By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” “And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience;” “and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”

Romans 5:2

Romans 5:3-4a

Romans 5:4b-5

Each of the four parts dump, if you will, into each other building into to give us the “because” give us Hope by realizing that the Holy Spirit is there to help us through each part.

The Original Image & Recipient

Getting this image “right” was a process which took much, much longer than anticipated. Normally, especially for the person who has a flower garden in her office, the pieces developed for she and her husband come rather easily – for their favorite colors and flowers are already known. She likes daisies most of all, but have found that a rose snuck in there for good measure will be accepted too! With this one though, the following comment was sent in an e-mail to her “other half” for an opinion with the first draft of the image:

“Have no idea why this one has been SO tough – and it has been, almost turmoil and odd and most unlike my normal challenges when putting together a piece even in the heat of things… Have just put it down, over and over with no real resolve until today (well, yesterday now).”

01-Romans5_1-HavingPeaceInTheMidstOfConflict-8x10L_v1_06-135 02-Romans5-2-HavingPeaceInTheMidstOfConflict-8x10L_v1_06-135 03-Romans5_3-4a-HavingPeaceInTheMidstOfConflict-8x10L_v1_06-135 04-Romans5_4a-5-HavingPeaceInTheMidstOfConflict-8x10L_v1_06-135

Finally, the right image became apparent to me, but it needed some adjusting – which is NOT my normal mode of operation, cleaning an image up of imperfections is one thing, but changing textures, well that is altering things a bit… But it was just what was needed to make way for a four part Scripture placement. Four areas, four places to put things: Peace, Hope, Patience & Love.

XSi34073KScope_GwenTippett-JarOfDaisyFlowers-8x10P_v1_02-Preview

The vase (Mason jar with ribbon handle) of daisy flowers is actually from Melissa’s Niece’s Wedding at Somerset Place the Civil War Historic Plantation in Creswell, NC on the edge of Phelps Lake. Didn’t know what to do with the grass – part brown and part green. My desire was to have the little “bouquet” pop right in the middle of chaos – that just might have happened… It is my hope that is what is conveyed.

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

After the image to use became clear, then the Encouragement wagon gathered steam – sure didn’t want her to think that I’d shirked my responsibility or opportunity to be an Encourager! The Lord was having to teach me a lesson in the mean time that I’d only get if stopping, praying, waiting and listening would take place. He has ALWAYS delivered, it is too often me that has to back up over and over to get the address of the stopping place so to speak.

By the response of how the piece lined up with just what she had been praying, seeking wisdom and making way toward, the Holy Spirit has accomplished what was needed and ALL the HONOR goes to our Heavenly Father!

How This Series Applies To Each Of Us

Those first five (5) verses were and are just the beginning of what Romans 5:1-21 | KJV should mean to each of us as Christians. The following phrase “walk” should help us realize just how powerful those Verses of Scripture really are. (You may read them by going to the Series page)

  1. Justified by Faith
  2. We have Peace with God
  3. Access By Faith Into His Grace
  4. We Stand in His Grace
  5. Rejoice in Hope
  6. Glory in Tribulations
  7. Tribulation Worketh Patience
  8. Patience (worketh) Experience
  9. Experience (worketh) Hope
  10. Love of God is Shed in Our Hearts

These list the benefits and privileges each one of us can experience from being justified. < The word “justified” comes from the very top of the walk and what changes is listed in the last two words in No. 10, “Our Hearts” – ALL because of the Love of God!

Welcome to The Encouragement Chronicles

The THIRD edition of The Encouragement Chronicles for 2013 features five Series as they were all created from the same set of meetings, our Winter Revival this year. Through five wonderful services, challenges were presented to us corporately, as a family and individually.  It is really up to us what we do with what we have been convicted over and whether or not we will are willing to be changed by the Holy Spirit.

Each of the five Series sets were launching pads for the Series, so it is NOT a verbatim feed back of just what Dr. Capaci challenged us with, it so happens to be my searching and desire for the Holy Spirit to change me.  The Series development is given in order of service time, as in: (1) Sunday morning, (2) Sunday evening, (3) Monday, (4) Tuesday and (5) Wednesday.

  1. Revive Us Again
  2. Our Revival Circle
  3. Seeking To Be Revived
  4. The Faithful Desire Revival
  5. A Few of Many Need Reviving

As is sought with most Series being worked on, I specifically ask God the Father to change me – on the inside first, remind me of the purchase price of my Salvation which is ONLY Jesus Blood and then give me the opportunity to learn how to apply those lessons into creative presentations so others may be attracted to the same Truth the Lord has shown me.  It’s a tall order — have one hard head at times – but as time goes along, my willingness to submit has been so rewarded in having that change in me that others can see.  It is after all, my desire with this Series and each that I’m allowed to create for everyone who receives the Chronicles and those that pass it along, to point others to the Saviour, tell of the time that can be enjoyed speaking to God the Father and knowing in a more real way that the Holy Spirit resides in me.

Do remember this is the once a month, large issue if you will, showcase manner in which The Encouragement Chronicles highlights the goings on of things happening with DeliverTheWord.com. These editions will naturally be larger providing everyone with a power packed collection new items to learn about and see how they have been used!

Series Showcase | Revive Us Again

Website | http://delivertheword.com/reviveusagain

Are there words to even describe what a Revival actually should be?  Many times we may think of them as being a “Revival Meeting” which is what has been my recall of them – a Summer Pulpit Revival Series for instance or a Winter Revival.  Many of us have seen or heard the following verse of Scripture referenced, as is the title for this Series built upon:

“Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?”
Psalm 85:6 | King James Version

X09506_ReviveUsAgain_8x10L_v1_02-Preview

Revive Us Again

“And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.”
I John 2:28-29 | King James Version

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

When the state of our world is contemplated, how we have squandered our religious freedoms and released our values, it reminds me that the Voice of the LORD should be our director — not one we at all points turn away from. Habakkuk shared his realization to the LORD in this manner at the beginning of this Verse of Scripture:

“O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.”
Habakkuk 3:2 | King James Version

The Bible reminds us, from the Word given unto Paul, written in Romans, the charge of how our lives are to be aligned.  The world does NOT do this and sad to say, MANY Christians have no idea what they have been Saved from or Saved unto as they aimlessly wander (and wonder) around.

“For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.”
Romans 14:8-9 King James Version

What We Are All To Be Doing Right Now

The header above will strike most folks odd…  Look at it, almost a brain twister isn’t it?  Your mind wants to say “What We All Are To Be Doing Right Now”, but the words “We Are” are together on purpose.  WE ARE, All of us, to:

  • Abide In Him
  • Doeth Righteousness
  • Have Confidence
  • Hope In Glory
  • Not Be Ashamed
  • Pray Unto The Father
  • Tell Our Own Testimony
  • Sharing The Gospel
  • Walk With God

This Series being built upon a WONDERFUL time our family has had for what God has done in all of us through a godly man who was willing to do what God the Father has called him to do in a time aptly named a Winter Revival at our church.  Bro. Capaci was faithful to deliver, but each of us has to be faithful to be revived!

How does the above list describe your life?  The verse following is the key builder to showing us how it should be!

Website | http://delivertheword.com/ourrevivalcircle

This second installment for this Revival Series contains an incredible presentation of Bible Scripture matched to profound Revival Quotes.  The focus of this set uses a Quote from Gypsy Smith as a launching point for us to consider in our seeking Revival in each of us: “Experiencing the Start of Revival.”  His prescription for doing so was to draw a circle, get yourself in it and ask God to convert US ourselves, essentially creating “Our Revival Circle” which is what this Series is named.

Do We Really Want Revival?

That is the question that has to be asked – for the answer comes from deep within us and no one else can answer that question for us individually.  It must be a realization that something is wrong in our own lives and something wrong with our loves.  The following definitions from the word “Revive” should help each of us more perfectly focus on the trouble.

HP_0858_01-StartOfRevival_24x16_Canvas--14_v1_21-Preview

Revival | REVI’VAL, n. [from revive.]

1. Return, recall or recovery to life from death or apparent death; as the revival of a drowned person.

2. Return or recall to activity from a state of languor; as the revival of spirits.

3. Recall, return or recovery from a state of neglect, oblivion, obscurity or depression; as the revival of letters or learning.

4. Renewed and more active attention to religion; an awakening of men to their spiritual concerns.

I have to, you have to, we all have to realize that ANY thing, item, going which comes before our following God the Father is a “step” from which we each will have to return.  It is personal, fiercely so, of which has to be taken care of at the foot of the Cross.  Will I draw our circle around the Cross with me IN the circle?  Will you?  Will we challenge others – ONLY after we have done so ourselves – to rekindle a walking Relationship with our Lord?

Series Spotlight | Seeking To Be Revived

Website | http://delivertheword.com/seekingtoberevived

The third installment for this Revival Series presents six passages of Scripture, which matches up with the third service of an incredible time in God’s Word which our family has been immensely BLESSED!  The photos used in this Series are pulled from here and there, including our Biltmore Estate collection, the breathtaking Gladiola flowerbed collection and a couple from a different perspective than most people would view them.  A couple of these have never been seen before, which were taken for specific private projects  — which is EXACTLY what this Series is all about.  We’ve each as Christians been Revived at least once in our lifetimes – at Salvation

Praise Thee, O Lord My God…
“For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone. Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore. For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.”
Psalm 86:10-13 | King James Version

What Are You Seeking?

Everyone is looking for something, many people just want to find something – anything…  As Blood bought Believers, our vision should be “adjusted” to Seek out those that Jesus Sought and our lives to be Moved by those who Christ would Move in order they might be Saved.  In that vision, we need to see the need — because we once were seen in that same manner, lost without a Shepherd — then we can moved to help fill that need.  Know anyone who thinks they have strayed too far? Possibly know of those who believe their voice has never been heard and need to know He will hear their Midnight Cry?  Oh, if they only knew who we really are!

It may not be a matter or whether or not we see who those who are looking for answers, but rather whether we really see their actual need of the Saviour and the working of the Holy Spirit in their lives.  Jesus saw their need – He put it in these words:

“But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.Matthew 9:36-38 | King James Version

In our day-to-day lives, are we taking the time to seek the Mind of the Lord?  Dr. Capaci made a very profound statement in Revival services:

“I wonder how it is with that soul?”

Are we willing to do our part, being the first to be on our knees before the Holy and All Powerful Creator God asking Him for the tools, study and learning opportunities to not only reach them, but FIRST to recognize them — right in the very paths which we cross on a daily basis?  There is HOPE in the Lord – folks need to be told about that Blessed HOPE more than ever in our day and time!

We Make The Decision

It is each one of us who has to decide that we will be the Seeker, but that begins with asking for a change not only in position but as a matter of the heart.  The Lord Jesus gave us the three part promise in the following verses of Scripture:

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8 | King James Version

Just as this third installment of this Revival Series set puts forth, are we “Seeking to be Revived?“  If we will humble ourselves, you and I, confess our sins – for we all have committed them, then are truly Seeking – we are certain to find…

Scripture References

The six Scripture references used for this Series stemmed from this statement made by Dr. Capaci:

“84% of Who, How, What that moves us has to do with our sight – it was What Jesus Saw With His Eyes That Moved Him”

Series Spotlight | The Faithful Desire Revival

Website | http://delivertheword.com/thefaithfuldesirerevival

The fourth installment for this Revival Series presents thirteen passages of Scripture in a manner quite convicting, dealing particularly with areas in a Christian’s life that affect each and everyone of us.  To have have these areas be discovered while preparing this Series from the same Revival Services as the first three, has been triggered by a word, which is “Faithful” and a verse:

Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
I Corinthians 4:2 | King James Version

01-XSi31109_AllDoings-TheFaithfulDesireRevival_8x10_v1_04-Preview

O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
Psalm 31:23 | King James Version

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

We The Faithful

It may be a play on words, as in “We The People…”, but oftentimes people think that because they are at church every time the doors are open that they are doing exactly what God the Father would have them do, that they are following in Jesus Christ’s footsteps and are exercising the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  Right?!  The answer is a BIG fat NEGATIVE on that one.  If I’ll be honest with my Creator God, then it is going to be quickly discovered that I’m human – we all are.

01-XSi31109_AllDoings-TheFaithfulDesireRevival_8x10_v1_04-135 02-XSi28155_Assembling-TheFaithfulDesireRevival_8x10_v1_04-135 03-XSi29571_Families-TheFaithfulDesireRevival_8x10_v1_04-135 04-X17153_Fellowship-TheFaithfulDesireRevival_8x10_v1_04-135

We can be faithful to lots of things and be just as rotten to the core as fruit, but with very few even noticing it, but we cannot fool God.  I’d like to have all thirteen (13) of these areas RIGHT in my life at all times, sadly though, it must be confessed – it simply isn’t so.  Will you be honest enough with me, yourself, those around you and the Lord – saying that we need help in all of these areas?

The list isn’t exhaustive, but what a starting point Dr. Capaci began by telling us of his own journey of faithfulness.  He had five points, which, YES I made into thirteen – the Holy Spirit challenged me in each of them because of being in the position of seeking it for my own life.

  1. IN All Doings
  2. IN Assembling
  3. IN Families
  4. IN Fellowship
  5. IN Friendships
  6. IN Prayer
  7. IN Relationships
  8. IN Service
  9. IN Small Things
  10. IN Spiritual Things
  11. IN Stewardship
  12. IN Thinking
  13. IN Worship

This Series presents the framework of areas needing attention as being like this: The Faithful Desire Revival IN _____.  Fill in the blank.  Journey with me through these areas identified in my own life and commit to seeking God’s Hand in our lives to Revive us to where these areas are in constant check and bringing a sweet smelling savor to the Master’s nostrils.

Poem Written For Revival Series

To ask ourselves, “What can make you move?” is a question indeed worthy of being asked.  This poem was written in response to the Revival Service in which Courtney was moved by – a direct influence of the question itself being asked in her own heart and mind. What could be more fitting for this poem than a Resurrection Lily?  The Lord Jesus Christ was moved with Compassion when He saw the multitudes. With a build up like the following, you will have to be the one to decide!

First | The Choir sang “I’m Amazed”

Second | Congregational Singing of “My Saviour’s Love” and “The Longer I Serve Him” Medley

Third | Special Music by Ladies Trio of “Out Of His Great Love”

Fourth | Congregational Singing of “What A Day That Will Be”

Fifth and READY to Launch | Dr. Eric Capaci Opening and Asking Us: “What Is It That Moves Us?”

Could almost just stop right there and let that be it!  But it gets EVEN better – BUZZ across my phone comes a “Thank you Eric Capaci!” and a button to click for a picture.  After a tap of the screen and a brief wait, the poem below is what we poured over into my “sight”…  And another note that said “I know it is blurry, but I couldn’t wait for you to see it!!“  Could there be sweeter words from a 15 year old — texted while she is ENGAGED in Revival Services?

Dr. Capaci sharing in his introduction of services in a church here in North Carolina and the playing of Victory in Jesus for the final roll call for just “one person who had been the least bit stirred” upset my apple cart as I spilled over in the thought and acknowledgement to the Lord myself.  Unfortunately not being able to sit in the the service first hand had me unaware what was being measured to our daughter – but we were being challenged by the same Holy Spirit, which come to realization through a buzz of a text message…

Series Spotlight | A Few of Many Need Reviving

Website | http://delivertheword.com/afewofmanyneedreviving

The fifth and final installment for this Revival Series presents a most compelling and indicting charge as to what is the largest tragedy facing our world today – so few people are concerned with Spiritual Things as it has to do with Eternal Life in God’s Heaven that has already been paid for by the Blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ.  The launching point for this discovery which leads to the answer to question of the ages is found in Jeremiah 42:1-4 | KJV:

“Then all the captains of the forces, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and Jezaniah the son of Hoshaiah, and all the people from the least even unto the greatest, came near, And said unto Jeremiah the prophet, Let, we beseech thee, our supplication be accepted before thee, and pray for us unto the LORD thy God, even for all this remnant; (for we are left but a few of many, as thine eyes do behold us:) That the LORD thy God may shew us the way wherein we may walk, and the thing that we may do. Then Jeremiah the prophet said unto them, I have heard you; behold, I will pray unto the LORD your God according to your words; and it shall come to pass, that whatsoever thing the LORD shall answer you, I will declare it unto you; I will keep nothing back from you.”
Jeremiah 42:1-4 | King James Version

We were challenged as a church to consider “IF it is even possible to start something?”, which must first begin with a Volunteer – someone willing to get themselves to a place where one could be Revived themselves, such that it could spread to our congregation.  Dr. Capaci, in his final service with us, quickly had our attention locked on considering what kind of Love we have for the Saviour, addressing different kinds of love, leading to our contemplation of a Supreme Love for Jesus.

03_X09884_AFewOfManyNeedReviving_8x10_v1_02a-Preview

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
John 13:34-35 | King James Version

  1. Intro to Commitment – Only A Few On Fire
  2. Fervent Love For Others
  3. Love This Book
  4. Willing To Forsake To Be Used

Just as the remnant sought of the Prophet Jeremiah in their day, will we – NOT just are we willing – as they did, beseech the LORD so that He will show us the way wherein we may walk, and the thing that we may do?

00_X09820_AFewOfManyNeedReviving_8x10_v1_02a-135 01_X09844_AFewOfManyNeedReviving_8x10_v1_02a-135 02_X09871_AFewOfManyNeedReviving_8x10_v1_02a-135 03_X09884_AFewOfManyNeedReviving_8x10_v1_02a-135

This final collection of Revival Series presentations presents us with ten (10) challenges of where it all starts and how others will see that A Great Revival Is In Our Soul!  Matching up to these just on the first time round will show us just where we are for the moment – and our lives are lived moment by moment.  Personally, I want to be found having that Supreme Love for my Saviour, doing what He has asked each of His Followers to do.

Beginning with the very first Scripture reference which our congregation was challenged on this closing evening, we knew right then that it was not going to be the usual wrap up – and FAR from it has it been…  Not like some feel good service done in a large coliseum, we had CHURCH not only in our midst, but within our hearts – a challenge to LOVE God’s Son the way Jesus Christ loved us – getting to a place where we would be willing to give our lives.  This after all is what was His sharing with us how others would Know we indeed were His.

Welcome to The Encouragement Chronicles

The SECOND edition of The Encouragement Chronicles has been delayed a tad bit, but has it been for GREAT reasons! Toward the end of January into the beginning of February lots of things take place for my day job so to speak, which is rewarding, but also VERY tiring.  Added to that known span of days with long hours and lots of burning the midnight oil so to speak, we have had one of the most exciting Revival meetings that can be remembered in recent memory.  Exciting might not be quite the word for it, taken in – flipped upside down – having a yearning for what God the Father has for us in this DAY and TIME – a refocus on the Blood of the Lamb, WHEW!  Those Series which have already been lain out with one completed will be the consuming focus of next months Chronicle.  Oh YES, do realize that THIS Chronicle has to come out BEFORE that, like RIGHT NOW…

The three Series selections for this Chronicle focus on the provision made for us in Christ.  Indeed may we agree with Paul that we will gladly accept where the Lord has us, so we might serve Him as He would have us do so.  Should we be willing, then shall we say boldly “His Grace Is Sufficient…”

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
II Corinthians 12:9 | King James Version

This Chronicle is going to be extremely personal for me, as the very first Series presented has a brief personal testimony included which only a few people know more than what is presented.  Believe me, it is not a draw at sympathy, but utterly a testimony to God’s goodness to me and what He has allowed me to accomplish for HIM!

The second and third Series to be shared are more abstract in nature, which will require some imagination to “see” what is in them, one of them being red w/gold and the other blue w/gold.  Each of them dealing with Faith, our Faith as Believers.  All are incredible reminders to us of the Power contained in the Covers of God’s Holy Word which have been provided to us such that we might learn to lean ever more upon Him!

Do remember this is the once a month, large issue if you will, showcase manner in which The Encouragement Chronicles highlights the goings on of things happening with DeliverTheWord.com. These editions will naturally be larger providing everyone with a power packed collection new items to learn about and see how they have been used!

Series Showcase | His Grace is Sufficient

Website | http://delivertheword.com/hisgraceissufficient

This has to be one of the most exciting Series developments created in a number of months, but it will most likely be a totally different reason than most would think. These images are bright, visually appealing and are harmoniously coordinated. So what is SO different? Quite simply looks!

We live in a time and place where such things as looks being “the appearance” and has to be just so, so, well — just so… What we use to call “just perfect…” is now expected to be without blemish. One of the things folks are going to notice about the photos in this Series is that they don’t follow my normal presentation. Most of them are significantly flawed. What a relief!!! I’m not perfect and it comes with absolute surety that anyone and everyone reading this isn’t either…

XSi32978_Exodus15-2_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32822_ISamuel2-9_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32386_IISamuel22_31-33_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32952_IIChronicles16_10-11_8x10L_v1_11-135 XSi32875_Psalm18_2-3_8x10L_v1_11-135

For wherever we find ourselves, God the Father has given us an entire Book of all Books, His Word which shows how the Power of Jesus Christ may rest upon each of us as it did for Paul shown through the Series verse of Scripture II Corinthians 12:9 | KJV:

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
II Corinthians 12:9 | King James Version

The Apostle Paul had to realize that “His Grace is Sufficient” because when he was himself at the weakest, the Lord Jesus’ would be made Perfect. He had a sincere desire for the Power of Christ to rest upon him, such that there would be NO question as to WHO was his source of Power! Even through his asking to have the “thorn in the flesh” removed three times (thrice), his answer was clear from the Lord in that His Strength is Made Perfect in Weakness.

Have we taken an inventory of our lives to see whether we “gladly rather glory in our infirmities” instead of using them as the stop-gap excuse to stop us from serving Him?

Having Faith To See

If you have just happened upon this Series – dig in, grab hold and hang on – if YOU will allow it, the Holy Spirit will change you because NONE of these people who wrote these verses under direct Inspiration of God were perfect people. Each of them had to have FAITH to see past the Scripture placed before them, because of the weakness THEY already KNEW was so.

XSi32749_Psalm27-14_8x10L_v1_11-135 XSi32505_Psalm31_23-24_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32775_Psalm37_39-40_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32677_Psalm62_6-8_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32945_Isaiah40-31_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg

For those who are familiar with the Series presentation — STOP — right where you are, put your gear in park for a moment. See yourself in the mirror before viewing the next list of print titles. Each of these has an imperfect person who wrote them, as human writers of God’s Word, right where they found themselves. Not a person, would be my educated guess, will be able to say they have mastered all of these… How would “I” know that??? Simply because there was a meteor shower which showed itself forward by means of Holy Spirit conviction during the development of this Series.

  • His Grace is Sufficient
  • The LORD is My Strength
  • He Will Keep the Feet of His Saints
  • God is My Strength
  • Seek the LORD
  • The LORD is My Rock
  • Be of Good Courage
  • Hope in the LORD
  • Salvation is of the LORD
  • My Refuge is in God
  • Wait Upon the LORD
  • Fear Thou Not
  • Love the Lord Thy God
  • With Might by His Spirit
  • All Things Through Christ
  • Giving Thanks Unto the Father
  • To Him Be Glory and Dominion
  • Worthy is the Lamb

This first image is the cornerstone at the entrance of a garden style gazebo at the Arboretum. It provided the perfect intro image for the Series in that it is constructed of stone much in the same manner that altars were built in the Old Testament. As many times as we pray, we need to have that altar mentality, that understanding of the place where we are and what the Lord Jesus Christ means to us as Christians. His Grace and Mercy are Sufficient, sometimes we just have to discover how it is that way.

Getting To Where We Are

Come May 8th, 2013, at the current pace of things, I’ll have had 10 years of constant pain with only brief periods without pain over a 6 in a scale of 1 to 10, the longest being 15 months and 1 week. Much of that time, even with pain arresting drugs and steroid use, the daily rattle is somewhere between 7 and 8.5 for 45 minutes to several hours at a time – over and over and over again, all day long. Even with severe pain management treatments, the pain never goes away and the seizures don’t totally stop.

XSi32768_Isaiah41-10_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32725_Mark12-30_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32357_Ephesians3-16_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32595_Philippians4-13_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32625_Colossians1_11-12_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg

NOTICE: I’m STILL putting one word at a time down in Series like this one, taking one step after another, keeping my head in the Bible with hours of study per day, joyously enjoying Gospel music every moment possible AND work 8-10 hours per day at a work-a-day job, consult at least one night a week, am FAITHFUL to MY CHURCH, teach an INCREDIBLE 3rd Grade Bus Sunday School Class, plus — am married to an AWESOME wife who does everything better than me, well besides computer work and talking and have a 15 year old young lady who is a REAL teenager, who is the Apple of two fellas eyes – mine and my Grandfather’s! DID you see how that ALL ran together??? HOW does all that happen? — HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT! — that’s how!

Two verses of Scripture come to mind when thinking about what God has been GOOD to me in and through: John 8:12 (My Life Verse) | KJV and James 4:10 (my Revival Life Verse) | KJV.

Life Verse

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John 8:12 | King James Version

Revival Life Verse

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
James 4:10 | King James Version

There are a special group of men who KNOW how that second verse came about – it CHANGED my life, which is what drives me today for what you are seeing right now.

The Lord Is My Strength

Beginning with the Series verse of Scripture in II Corinthians 12:9 | KJV, the story presented is one of triumph and overcoming – hence the use of roses with blemishes here and there, for that is a symbol of our own lives, yours and mine.  This Series is filled with promises, declarations and Encouragement by presenting a short study on a tall subject – how His Grace is indeed Sufficient for each one of us.

XSi32696_IPeter5_10-11_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg XSi32714_Revelation5-12_8x10L_v1_11-135.jpg

It is my sincere hope that this Chronicle will be as much of an Encouragement to YOU individually as well as to all those it will be shared.

Series Spotlight | For the Faith of the Gospel

Website | http://delivertheword.com/forthefaith

This VERY thought provoking and soul-stirring sermon preached by our Pastor Tim Rabon is one for the record books – not because he preached it mind you, but rather because he was willing to be used of Almighty God to deliver it to the people of our Church!  Going into our Vision Night service, it gave opportunity for us to be challenged right where each of us really are – how we should earnestly contend for the Faith, For the Faith of the Gospel!

The launching of this series comes on the heels of Mid-Winter revival services in our fellowship of the common salvation – knowing that we are purchased by the blood bought work of the Son of God, Jesus Christ our Redeemer.  Philippians 1:27 | KJV serves as the launching verse:

“Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;”
Philippians 1:27 | King James Version

The only other exact place that “for the faith” is used in the Bible is located in Jude 1:3 | KJV which follows:

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Jude 1:3 | King James Version

This second “for the faith” is actually a “sister Series” to this one located at the following:

Earnestly Contend For The Faithhttp://delivertheword.com/earnestlycontend
Encouragements By His Word Series

There are four (4) prints for each set – giving us an incredible look at the SAME verse in 4 different manners!

While there may only be a single verse, MUCH is learned from God’s Word by focusing on the four profound statements from Philippians 1:27 | KJV:

Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
Philippians 1:27 | King James Version

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Theme presentation is very pointed for this Series, it is tied around the following phrase: For the Faith of the Gospel. Something very special is displayed with this Series of prints – can you spot them???  One person of the initial group picked it out from the very first preview…

The four areas of the focus points include:

  1. Only Let Your Conversation Be
  2. Stand Fast In One Spirit
  3. With One Mind
  4. Striving Together

They are intentionally ornate, from the use of three typefaces which flow together, rich colors of gold and blues, along with deep black backgrounds to contrast the boldly presented gold frames.  The background color was chosen as an ultimate get your attention mechanism with the use of a virtually unlimited depth of the literally hundreds of transparency fills used on each pieces of the artwork, giving a sense of boldness to each one.

While there are only four (4) images, there are also 3 different color/formats available, upping the availability to twelve (12). Two of those sets of designs is portrait in orientation and the final one is landscape in orientation, which is the normal design layout for Series on DeliverTheWord.com.

Anyone spotted what the images portray yet?  It may be easier on the first one to see if the focus is placed on the bottom set of elements – an angel.  On the second print, the angel is easiest to determine on the top.  The wings are most definitely visible in print number three.  The fourth one is spectacular in presentation, for there are 10 angels in this one all leaning in-ward toward the center.  See them.  There is also one more element – you may need to back up to see it…  It may also help if you were to sing our Pastor’s favorite Christmas song…  ”O Beautiful Star of Bethlehem…”  Now do you see it???  Their arms cross to create a…

Welcome to The Encouragement Chronicles

The FIRST edition of The Encouragement Chronicles for the New Year, 2013 for those of us having challenges remembering which year we are living, has me more EXCITED about what the Lord is going to do with and through each person touched by this site!  Now that the different facets of DeliverTheWord.com are up and running, Encouraging others is being made available to any and everyone who will use these desperately needed on-line tools.  Certainly, new features will be added and capabilities expanded, which are all part of maturing as development continues to make DeliverTheWord.com the spot to depend on for Bible based Encouragements at every turn.

Anyone ready for a few good ole hymns???  Are there specific hymns, psalms that come to mind – like right now – that once they get recalled, trigger a chain reaction of singing unto the Lord?  As long as can be remembered, a phrase comes to mind first heard as a child “Make a joyful noise” which normally applied when a person in my hearing sang “REAL LOUD.” After some careful research, it has been interesting to discover that there are seven verses of Scripture that have the specific phrase “make a joyful noise”?  They are all in the Book of Psalms, beginning in Psalm 66:1 advancing through to Psalm 100:1. My personal favorites (two are in this specific mention of Scripture) is Psalm 95:1-3 | KJV.

O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
Psalm 95:1-3 | King James Version

The remaining verses are: Psalm 66:1, 81:1, 98:4, 98:6 and 100:1 | KJV. We are to make a joyful noise to the Rock of our Salvation.  We hope that you find just that in the Hymns that are presented as the Showcase and first Spotlight in this edition of The Encouragement Chronicles in 2013! There are 26 hymns to choose from, one of them is bound to be familiar to your hearing – it might surprise you how many of them are so.  Wait till you read the story behind them, it’ll make better sense then…

Series Showcase | Hymns of My Heart Collection

Website | http://delivertheword.com/hymnsofmyheartcollection

This series, “Hymns of My Heart Collection, Volume No. 1”, has been a pure joy to put together in preparation for putting onto the DeliverTheWord.com Website.  It is just a “small” subset of a MUCH larger library of hymns which are being prepared for on-line access.  And is the second site of this type to be developed, with the first being “Celebrating The Path Hymn Series”.

The tabs above the menu allow for easy color selection when looking through the hymns so all of them coordinate easily.  Each hymn available size is currently 1024×768 and 1280×1024.  Each print design has the Scripture reference presented in King James Version text from which the hymn was written.

How This Series Got Named

As is often the case with many of the projects that proceed before the window of my mind, this series has taken some time to develop, putting together the “right” package of songs to answer the challenge placed on my heart.  Nearly complete, with twenty selections, another one entered into my mind as looked through the library listing of older hymns, until a final one was chosen. This one was somewhat a challenge in choosing a name for it, but God knew and someone else did too.

Once the dust settled on the individual pieces, started preparing them for use, for which I just couldn’t help myself – it was part of the criteria – should one pass by one of these hymns, the goal is to not be able to do so without starting to sing it!  Without really noticing it, our daughter, who was working on her computer in my office, began to hum and sing the hymn softly whenever I stopped.  Just smiled and kept working away at them, repeating the process for each one till it was completed – which she kept doing after each one.

As the conversion of the sheet music was being wrapped up, she was looking over my shoulder to see which hymn was being worked on and we sang them together – WOW – what a moment in time.  LISTEN – this is EXACTLY what my heart desires to happen to YOU.

As I was struggling with what to “call it”, handed the paper to her and asked her if she would name the series…  Moments later she handed me the list of hymns back with just one name to choose from: Hymns of My Heart.  That is how this series got named – by a 14 year old.

HymnsOfMyHeartCollection_Vol_1-AGloriousChurch_11x14_v2_00-Blue-Preview

Ornate Color Choices

There are five color choices in this series, which are separated by these colors, for this site presentation of this collection.

  • English Country Blue
  • Coral Reef
  • Red Garnet
  • Olive Mustard
  • Royal Purple

Each of these hymns were chosen with this verse in mind:

Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
Psalm 150:6 | KJV

An example of each color is shown in the following icons, which each link to the site for immediate access.

THEME_SliderImages_v1_00_EnglishCountryBlue-320p THEME_SliderImages_v1_00_CoralReef-320p

THEME_SliderImages_v1_00_RoyalPurple-320p THEME_SliderImages_v1_00_SheetMusic-320p

Since there are SO many of the formats and colors for each Hymn, all of the images will point to the site directly. Several have inquired asking to have a listing of the sheet music alone for this type of series, so they have been added in the same sizes as the overall prints/designs would be for enjoyment also.  You may find those by clicking the menu “Sheet Music” or from the slider of the same name.

About

Hymns of My Heart Collection – Volume 1 is the first installment of sheet music prints which are presented in an artistic manner using ornate marquees for a presentation which will entice others to view and present an opportunity to be a witness. Each volume will share familiar elements, but are intended to provide unique sets of hymns with varied artistic designs.

A Part of a Library

This Collection is a small portion of a much larger Music Hymnal Library which will be showcased upon completion. Just as with this collection, each grouping intends to evoke and invoke something in the mind of the Believer, a stirring of the heart, one where a rejoicing comes from within and flows outward.

What is a Hymn?

A Christian hymn is a religious song, typically of praise to God, which has been formally established for Christian worship to be sung celebrating a truth found in the Scriptures. Each of the hymns in this collection are based upon at least one Scripture verse which is included in full with the designed pieces and at least in part with the sheet music.

Each hymn is a piece of music, much like a Psalm, written from a founding verse of Scripture. References in both the Old Testament and New Testament encourage us to sing.

It is our hope that the Ministry of Encouragement will become an area which you strive to serve, for everyone can be an encourager to someone – and that someone is going to need you to encourage them with the full power given to you through the Holy Spirit!

Series Spotlight | Celebrating The Path Hymns

Website | http://delivertheword.com/celebratingthepath

This spectacular set of hymn prints came into being from the concept of singing hymns before getting prepared to preach in one of our local skilled nursing homes.  After first asking around for ones that were special to several friends and family, it settled in as being a prayer request taken to the Lord during Bible Study.  Over the period of a few weeks, was impressed on by the Holy Spirit to identify hymns which would be TOUGH to pass by without breaking out singing them immediately.

What we find ourselves “gazing upon” is generally what we carry with us to some degree for a few moments, to minutes, to hours or even longer depending on how much time is spent around it.  We have many things in our home that “remind us” of times, places, people and the occasion of either receiving or purchasing that item.  And, of course, there are special places for heirlooms and precious memories represented by this or that – why not have those surrounding us to remind each of us of all the WONDERFUL things that have been “added to our account…” from our ALMIGHTY GOD!

Xxxxxx_HymnsSeries_I-BlessedBeTheName_11x17_v2_00_ChineseRed_01-Preview

The concept for this series came from Colossians 3:16 and 17:

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. ”
Colossians 3:16-17 (KJV)

What this project developed into has been just a blessing of so many proportions, places, ways and wonders!  I’ve been singing those songs on a daily basis since…

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | e-Courage

After much research and flipping through my trove of hymnals, there were five that became the core ones, that without hesitation, just burst forth from me at any and all times during the day.  Those hymns are the following:

  • Blessed Be The Name
  • Higher Ground
  • Just Over In The Glory Land
  • Since I Have Been Redeemed
  • The Lily Of The Valley

The desire for these pieces was rooted in preparing a set of five (5) to place in a set of ornate 11×17 frames picked up some time ago to put up over the top of our piano or down the hall.  Immediately we thought of our Pastor and his wife, which kick-started the design engine so to speak to make them a bit more fancy and different than the sometimes seen “sheet music” we’ve seen framed.

Series Spotlight | Joy In The Journey

Website | http://delivertheword.com/joyinthejourney

This series and set of prints is one that presents not only an attitude (good one), but presents to each of us what real “Joy” is suppose to be all about.  Have you ever thought about what real “Joy” is?  Who it comes from?  This world has a warped sense by equating “Joy” with worldly pleasure, a sense of accomplishment, accolade, success, winning…  But each of those things are fleeting at best, lacking even the remotest concept of “who” gives us REAL “Joy”.

Joy In The Journey is a “prescription” of sorts, presented to us in eleven (11) beautiful prints beginning with the statement:

To Enjoy The Journey

Series Focus

The focus of this series of prints is remembering to finish our course with “Joy”, making the decision that I’m stick’n with it!  Contrary to what people might think, these reminders are NOT for the person who is nearing the end of their journey alone, is serves as a reminder to everyone that we can experience that “Joy” each day.  Paul’s declaration in Acts 20:24 served as a launching pad for this series from a sermon preached at our church in June 2011:

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
Acts 20:24 | KJV

The starting image set the stage for the design and contains the verse which began this Journey of “To Enjoy the Journey” and the ruffled Gladiolas from our front flower bed which dot the entire series.  With this thought as a start, the challenge came to our congregation of “Don’t know about tomorrow, but…” mixed in with a goal of finishing our course with  JOY!

X22287_Acts_20_24_JoyInTheJourney_8x10_v1_00-Preview

The following ten (10) presented areas should remind us of those things we can have “Joy” through, which will help us to keep the focus on the correct person, which is NOT us…

  1. Joy Through Believing
  2. Joy Through Doing So
  3. Joy Through Feasting
  4. Joy Through Finishing
  5. Joy Through Laboring
  6. Joy Through Ministry
  7. Joy Through Obeying
  8. Joy Through Presence
  9. Joy Through Rejoicing
  10. Joy Through Trusting
1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

This print and the Scripture for which it is designed, should remind us of our learning to trust in Jesus and that we should not forsake “the assembling of ourselves togetherHebrews 10:25a | KJV which puts before us how we can keep the Joy in journey, directly influenced by our learning to trust in the Lord!

The journey is not always easy, but we are not to go from one point in our lives to another without JOY!  The JOY of the Lord is our STRENGTH.  We are also to be reminded that along that journey, as each step is taken we will have things revealed about our journey.  A further step forward will find us being encouraged as well as being an encourager. Yet another realization we need to draw focus of is the rewarding journey taken, whose Glory, Joy and Honor are to be recognized and given.

Our Course

Paul states that he “might finish my course with joy, and the ministry” which he knew was “received of the Lord Jesus“.  With some research and prayer, there are 10 items here which lay out of us the “track” if you will to how we can have “Joy In The Journey” right now, so that we will be able “to finish our course“.  Nehemiah said at the end of Nehemiah 8:10:

“…for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
Nehemiah 8:10 | KJV

May we each realize that we cannot have Joy, do those things that God has for us to do or have that amazing journey if we attempt to do so in our own strength!  We do however have the Promises of God and the ability to know through Him, we can have knowledge of life being “sweeter than the day before”!

Welcome to The Encouragement Chronicles

Truly this final issue of the Chronicles for 2012 is one of CELEBRATION!!!  So many good things have taken place that it may be hard to recount them all…  The number of places where the work developed for this site is popping up is truly Encouraging to me, with a great amount of interest being brought in Internationally (outside of the United States).  It may surprise you, it sure did me, but something that has not been shared in a Chronicle at all are the Hymns Series, of which there are two of them.  They have netted hundreds of views and downloads.

This Chronicle is going to be all about my ABSOLUTE favorite time of the year: CHRISTMAS!  Just about everything that has to do with CHRISTmas is on my list of likes…  The trees, ornaments, presents, caroling, decorating, Nativity scenes, musicals, plays, TV programs and the seemingly endless playing of Christmas carols and songs.  Once you take a look at the Christmas design decorations, it will not be difficult to see what my FAVORITE item at Christmas is –

O*R*N*A*M*E*N*T*S.

I’ve enjoyed and have been mesmerized by ornaments since my childhood – which my wife and daughter would both resoundingly agree — that may not be over quite yet…  Each design entertains the fanciful delight of the glisten and enchantment of even the most simple sphere – there is at least one in EACH design.  There are three main Series (One, Two and Three) in which to choose, which intertwine very complex designs all the way down to the most simple no frills ones – all of them being presented in the spirit of sharing.  There are blues, golds, reds along with snowflakes and stars, with a tree or two thrown in for good measure so there is something for everyone.

A few of the “Christmas” shares are going to be in different Series locations as they were created at different times and for different occasions.  For instance, a Psalm 23 design was included in Life’s Realities [http://delivertheword.com/lifesrealities] which utilizes a very “red” Poinsettia for the base design.  Another Series with three designs in it is Whosoever Will, Let Him [http://delivertheword.com/lethim] which includes three prints to multi-colored Poinsettias containing “We Have Come Into This House” by Bruce Ballinger.

It is my hope that CHRISTmas this year will be shared with others as an Encouraging time — we have the tool, your reading a part of it right now…

UPDATE | The On-Line Store is FULLY active!  With a WHOLE lot of effort and a few sleepless nights, each standard image on DeliverTheWord.com is order capable.

Do remember this is the once a month, large issue if you will, showcase manner in which The Encouragement Chronicles highlights the goings on of things happening with DeliverTheWord.com. These editions will naturally be larger providing everyone with a power packed collection new items to learn about and see how they have been used!

Series Showcase | Holiday Collection 2012

Website | http://delivertheword.com/holidaycollectionchristmas

It gives me GREAT pleasure to Introduce to you an UPDATED series, the Holiday Collection for Winter of 2012! There are a host of images that have “glass ornaments” in them of two different colors for this year: blue and red, along with plenty of GOLD!

It would be difficult for anyone who even has a vague idea about Christmas to not know what the Celebration is all about – the birth of Jesus Christ. All of the “ancient” retelling of the olden times in which baby Jesus was born and was lain in a manger because there was no room in the Bethlehem Inn for Joseph and Mary, are things many of us can easily recall from our youth. They would continue to share the understanding that Jesus didn’t have a “roof” under his head in his Service to the LORD.

Touching the hem of Jesus’ garment, as shared with us in the Gospel according to Luke, chapter 8, verse 44 and following:

Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
Luke 8:44-45 | King James Version

The woman being spoken of was healed by merely touching the border or hem of his garment – she had been “Encouraged” to do so because of what she saw in Him. Will we commit and think upon what Jesus Himself told the woman when she came forward? Here’s what she said in Luke, chapter 8, verse 48:

And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
Luke 8:48 | King James Version

Likewise we should want each and every print in this series as well as all of the rest of them, to remind those who see them to remember what the Lord has done for them!

NOTE: Note to self – there are NO flowers in this series – so it is possible to do so!

There are three distinct Series for consideration this year – the NEW one comes first!

Series Three | The Reason for the Season

There are nine designs or images which were developed for this Series – so aptly named: The Reason for the Season!  Each of them were developed to incorporate a rich blue and gold color, setting the tone for this new Series to become a solid favorite.

The following comprise the set:

  1. Celebrate
  2. Seasons Greetings
  3. Highly Exalted
  4. Jesus Christ Is Lord
  5. Wishing You A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year
  6. And His Name Will Be Called…
  7. Merry Christmas
  8. For Unto Us A Child Is Born…
  9. Greetings

The designs are not all about Christmas trees, rather they present ornaments and stars, along with a symbolic tree on a couple which help them become familiar because of the elements used.

Five (5) of those designs have Scripture incorporated in them from Isaiah (Old Testament) and Philippians (New Testament)

Scripture & References For The Series

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 9:6 | King James Version

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:”
Philippians 2:9 | King James Version

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:10-11 | King James Version

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

This set of blue and gold ornaments, along with blue and gold tree branches, presented with golden stars, make up these landscape oriented pieces totaling up to 9 design units.  There are only two background colors which simplify the set, providing unity and connection with the set as a whole.  This set need not be presented as a set to blend creatively, but have been designed to be presented in the order presented.  Each design carries the Series name of The Reason for the Season plainly with the same typeface and presentation.

This set of rich color contrast and distinctive ornament design was created to be a unique conversation piece, which they have already proven to be…  Before they were even up on the Internet yet, folks are asking WHEN so they could begin to think about how they could utilize them for this Christmas Season! Be the CONVERSATION STARTER, send everyone Greetings and tell them about The Reason for the Season!

Read the entire contents of Series Three: http://delivertheword.com/holidaycollectionchristmas/series-three-the-reason-for-the-season

Series Two | Red Ornaments

This second set of designs developed along with Series One (below) have some of the same features, but are presented in a strikingly different manner.  These ornaments resemble hanging from a “tree” or at least in the mind they do.  By looking closer, one will notice they are not “hanging” on anything other than the stand of ribbon which so thinly shown.  The ornaments themselves have a varying degree of transparency and rotation which gives them there “different” look.  The smallest ornament is indeed only a “perspective” away from the more prominent two towards the front.

Scripture & References For The Series

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 9:6 | King James Version

“And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.”
Luke 2:12 | King James Version

“But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
Philippians 2:8 | King James Version

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

This Series offers a total of 13 images, five of which do not have any Scripture worked into the design.

These are sure to be a talked about item when sharing them with others.  As you share them with others you know and a few that you may not know all that well, invite them to be intrigued — they may want to share them as well!

Read the entire contents of Series Two: http://delivertheword.com/holidaycollectionchristmas/series-two-red-ornaments-triple-hanging

Series One | Blue Ornaments

This particular blue background image with a single gold colored ornament provides a view which in essence cannot be denied. Your mind will tell you that it is there and it is round, all the while the captivation is but something allusive… It was engineered to give the opportunity of the “looker” to look again and want to be drawn closer to it to see if it really is what is first appeared to be. Our lives are just like that – they should see Christ in us by every action, deed, place we go, word we speak… They will see us, watching to see if what they “think” they see is indeed what they are seeing in us – will it be like the imagery used in this design?

Scripture & References For The Series

“And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.”
Matthew 2:6 | King James Version

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2:11 | King James Version

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
John 1:1, 3, 14 | King James Version

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Each of blue ornaments and stardust tree designs contains a mixture of portrait and landscape oriented pieces totaling 18 overall design units. Twelve (12) of those designs have Scripture incorporated in them from Matthew, Luke and John.

These deep blue designs with mainly gold and white accents were developed to intrigue the mind – will we be intrigued enough to share a simple ornament with those we know and even those we don’t?  You’d be surprised at the response that has been sparked by what is “missing”…

Most likely a great mystery is fixing to be shared with a whole heap of folks…  A “Southern Manner” of saying the following: A mystery is about to be revealed to the readers of The Encouragement Chronicles.  With well placed purpose, the discovery of a built-in design to foster a “ribbon” in the artwork designed for the collection of sites that build DeliverTheWord.com.  It is intentional, not an accident, that the color “red” is used in a prolific manner and objects that would serve as a reminder of the shed Blood of Christ are utilized throughout.  This list is not exhaustive by any means, but will make much more sense to the detection that foundationially everything in this Chronicle was built on the basis of including something red in the design work presented.  From poinsettias, crosses, roses, red flowers of several different kind – even if the color has been changed to suit a different need or purpose, all of it has been by design.  It will not be long till it can be said that there is a verse of Scripture from every book contained in the Bible — only lack a couple to make that a statement come true.

Here are a few of them:

The idea for this Encouragement Series came about from listening to the song by the same name, Written in Red, by George Jensen being performed/sang by Janet Paschal. She also happens to be my favorite singer for this specific song. Jotted down on a card, which is my normal starting process for any Series – yes a piece of paper, normally a 4×6 note card – the title “Written in Red – Jensen” to remind me of the date and title.

Beginning With Psalm 23 | The proving of the Preached Word of God by discovering Scripture, has made this project one of a different viewpoint. For one, it shows us that indeed they are real and that’s life! Second, it points the focus toward the Father God and Son Jesus Christ!

Romans 8:38-39 | King James Version

Series Spotlight | Written In Red

Website | http://delivertheword.com/writteninred

This specific Series has been in development on and off for several months as a “core” theme had become somewhat elusive it seemed as it was picked up, put down and tucked away time after time. Having a desire to develop it once again in an effort to make it become a Series, several small steps needed to be trod which made finishing it SO much more rewarding. Isn’t it interesting how frustrating something becomes when it is being struggled with, but when God the Father places it before us, all of a sudden the search that seemed so difficult and tedious becomes a labor of love and pleasurable learning?

Beginnings

The idea for this Encouragement Series came about from listening to the song by the same name, Written in Red, by George Jensen being performed/sang by Janet Paschal. She also happens to be my favorite singer for this specific song. Jotted down on a card, which is my normal starting process for any Series – yes a piece of paper, normally a 4×6 note card – the title “Written in Red – Jensen” to remind me of the date and title.

The choices of design needed to include elements presented in red, specifically the writing, to match the Series name. Finding a design to adapt and enhance with symbolism was not difficult at all, but then came the substance… Couldn’t get solid footing on the Scripture wrapping for them – thus putting it down so it could be picked up and continued as to look at it differently.

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Then Came The Blood

Consider looking with me at the first verse of this song:

In letters of crimson God wrote His love
On a hillside so long, long ago
For you and for me Jesus died
And love’s greatest story was told

From the first four letters comes a TRUTH that has changed the ages, “In letters of crimson…” As the development of this Series was picked up again, the beautiful song performed by Janet once again was listened to fully several times till I began to sing it even without the on-line version of it playing.

It has been my habit for many years now to surround myself with good Gospel music to listen to whenever and wherever possible. Whether that be at home, at the office, on the way to work, traveling – you name it, there is a MP3 player or CD player somewhere pouring forth praise for the Master and King of Kings. Truly what we surround ourselves with will be the influence we are to others, poured out without us having to think about doing so.

As my mind churned more on the “Blood of Christ”, found a video with a very special ending by Gloria Gaither – it is truly what changed my whole thought process. It is not Gloria that was important, it was what she was said that sparked in me research points.

As she shared her own personal testimony about being raised in a Preacher’s home, she stated that she “missed” the application of the Truth spoken of in the applying of the Blood of Jesus Christ to all in our lives. Also shared is a fact shown time after time of past revivals over the past 400 years, they focused on the re-application of the Blood.

Furtherance With A Special Men’s Prayer Time

For more than four years now, our Saturday evening Men’s Prayer Time for the men of our church has been an extra special time taken out of the week to spend time with at least one other man praying for the concerns of our church and within our own families.

I love you, I love you
That’s what Calvary said
I love you, I love you
I love you written in red

We have to make the effort to remember to “apply” the Blood of Jesus Christ to each and every situation in our lives – it is called purposing in our hearts, as in what Daniel did in Daniel 1:8:

“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”
Daniel 1:8 | King James Version

This Series is provided as the reminder to each of us that EACH and EVERY thing that we do is something we should submit ourselves to the Creator God before doing. When we “Apply” the Blood of Christ to each area of our lives, it will be checked first and then done, instead of the worldly manner of doing so – which is to do first then figure out how it applies later.

May each of us get the Truth of this Series “Written In Red”, for it is what will change our lives FOREVER!

Series Spotlight | Be Strong In The Lord

Website | http://delivertheword.com/bestronginthelord

This Series is comprised eight (8) different prints, all coordinated in a similar fashion, with one Scripture verse subtly presented on each, along with a blended ornate cross. The colors used in the presentation of the cross for each item is taken from a prominent color of either the butterfly itself or the surrounding articles in the photograph. The color intentions are to be subtle, but powerful, allowing the butterfly itself to be the attraction, leading to the power of the cross – of course to remind each viewer of why we need to “Be Strong In The Lord”.

Scripture Verses From The Bible

Each of the Scripture verses used for this series actually come from one book and chapter of the Bible, which is Ephesians 6, verses 7, 11, 14, 17, 18, 23 & 24. Each of them is listed as the following:

“With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men” Ephesians 6:7 | KJV

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11 | KJV

“Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness” Ephesians 6:14 | KJV

“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. ” Ephesians 6:16 | KJV

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” Ephesians 6:17 | KJV

“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” Ephesians 6:18 | KJV

“Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 6:23 | KJV

“Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.” Ephesians 6:24 | KJV

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Each verse of Scripture has an action word, which should indicate to us the need to be active. We ought to be daily: doing, standing, quenching, taking, praying, and loving.

Multiple Sets | Same Scripture

In the overall development of this Series, the overall plan which was considered, was to have them be intended to be established as a group, but it is not necessary to do so. There are 8 printed prints, all of which have integrated background images presented in a very prominent manner, presenting a captivating message in a manner which is noticeable from nearly any distance.

Given that they have been designed in such a manner to be presented in a group, that does not mean that they cannot be displayed individually or several to a group. However, to help aid in putting them into groupings, several of the Collective Statements prints have been designed to facilitate hanging them as a collection. Two different designs have been developed for the 8×10 sized prints, which a single one of them could be used in order to provide a balance, by causing the set to have a total of nine (9) prints – 4 to the left, 1 center, 4 to the right, or any combination an individual may desire.

Of these designs, containing the identical information, one lends itself to being placed at either the beginning of the set of in the middle of the set, where as the second was intended to be hung in the center of the set. But don’t forget, even the Collective Statements are well capable of being hung by themselves also – or with one or more prints of your choice, allowing the individual to create a custom collage of their own liking and appreciation.

Preparation

In preparing to build this set of prints, over and again the story of the “struggles” of the butterfly came to into clear focus and was a reminder of the struggle they must go through in order to do what a butterfly does most – softly fly around. Because of that struggle, which strengthens them beyond our comprehension, they are able to “flutter” around with very little present difficulty. For these eight (8) wonderful verses, a beautiful butterfly was chosen to represent each one.

Many times it is what others see around us, as a dear friend has even recently reminded me of, that for them individually it puts into motion for them a belief or disbelief in what they see in each of us – shoe leather so to speak. From the starting verse of Scripture of how we are “doing service” in Ephesians 6:7, to the final verse of Scripture in the “Amen”, we are “judged” so to speak on how we are doing on that scale according to that persons view of us…

Volume 1 | Issue 4 | November 9, 2012

Welcome to The Encouragement Chronicles

This time of the year is my absolute favorite – both Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons – not because it is the closing of a year, but that it brings family together, giving way to a bountiful manner of Encouraging others.  Now of course, for anyone that knows me, where food is involved – it is going to be a GOOD time!  It also provides an opportunity to re-kindle relationships and catch up on the happenings in others lives, how God the Father has Blessed in the lives of those whom we cherish and to recognize why we Celebrate, truly being Merry!

For some though, even those who may be receiving this Chronicle, this time of the year may come with a less than celebratory tone – for someone it may have been a long time since this time of the year has been full of Joy and Happiness…  A large part of the reason that DeliverTheWord.com has been created and designed in the manner that it has is because of hurting people – those that desperately need to be Lifted Up, Encouraged and Cherished!  We each have the opportunity to be those kinds of givers – sometimes the power of delivering a card has the capacity of helping stir the soul in a manner that needs to be captured by each of us.

There are several Series that are going to be showcased and spotlighted which are centered around Thanksgiving, giving each of us the ability to have our own personal arsenal of Christian/Bible oriented material that can be utilized in several different ways.  A Special Focus will be placed on making each Series a highlighted one for everyone.  Indeed if it had not been for the Love of the Father, in providing the Love of Jesus for us to be Redeemed, we’d have nothing to be thankful for – rather though, we have ALL we need to be Thankful in every situation because of that Love.

New Features To Be Soon Released

Series Showcase | Consider The Source

Website | http://delivertheword.com/considerthesource

Indeed this is a MOST special Series, one which no one who was in the influence range of hearing it, has any excuse of saying that they didn’t “get” what was being said.  What an incredible thing to say about the Word of God being preached!  For those who might as we suppose it – chew and meditate on it – there is NO walking away unchanged.  Everyone deals with the concept and work-a-day world concept of being “criticized” or being “the one who criticizes” others – which none of us truly likes – both of the positions are painful…

The Biblical Truth presentation for this Series is provided in the form of highlights, not a point by point, reference by reference in entirety of Bro. Dwight Ausley’s sermon on October 16th, 2011.  What is presented here includes the pieces which challenged me personally, which has led me to an INCREDIBLE Bible study – which has become my norm for “proving” each sermon preached at our church.

Our Pastor has challenged us to “prove” those things which are preached, so we are growing in the Lord past just a single service message – that alone has changed my life in the manner of Bible study.  Digging through the Word of God is an excellent way to grow.  Most of the time I find that one piece or area of a sermon is one that sticks and perks my interests, standing out above the rest.

Powerful Lesson and Biblical Truth About Criticism

This series, “Consider the Source”, is a result from one of our Associate Pastoral Staff members preaching a heartfelt message which make it par for the course for putting onto the DeliverTheWord.com Website. Bro. Dwight, you ask for it by leaving the door open – I just walked through it… It is a rather unique set of prints, images and backgrounds as they are actually split into 3 different sets in one.

By Way of Challenge

While not called by the same name, the concept is built around the VERY real challenge of “Responding in Light of the Scriptures”! The three developed sets is derived from the following thoughts:

  • Listening – Being Willing to Attend, Hearing the Truth
  • Learning – Realizing that You are Able to Pray Continually
  • Perspective – Gaining the Proper View & Leaving it to the Lord

Basis for Series

The basis for this series follows the introduction of the sermon, which Bro. Dwight put forth before getting to the heart of the mess – you will agree that it was a WHALLOP of an introduction!

Criticism: Responding in Light of Scripture

  1. Comes when we least need it
  2. Comes from the least qualified to give it
  3. Comes in a form that is least helpful

Doesn’t it always seem to be that way? Just when you don’t think you can handle one more thing or hear one more person tell you what is being done incorrectly… There they are – standing right in front of you – just waiting to see how you are going to handle, expecting this reaction or that reaction to what is going to be said about this or that.

Before the Main Message

Keep in mind… ALL of this came before he got into the “Main Message” – talk about WOW and AMEN – that is exactly what this should be for everyone. No one escapes from this challenge – an ever present wave of “Criticism”… The only changes made to his pre-delivery message were the words in his “by-line” as the saying goes – here is the enhanced one:

Responding in Light of the Scriptures

Beginning with Excerpts

Each of the prints has different Scripture references/verses, as well as an “excerpt”, which is the concept presentation of the print. They are conveyors of the thought behind each area or sets of prints. Presenting the short form of the prints message is critical and thought provoking – all of them pointing to the “Source” which we need to “Consider” in everything we do…

Message Title

The sermon title, which came after setting up or laying down the groundwork so to speak, can invoke very strong thoughts and emotions as it can often appear to conjure up ideas of pain, being hurtful, hidden fears or even possible bullying.

When People Throw Stones

Message Launching Verses for Concept

In this case, the “whisper” is the stone, which we would call words being spoken against us.

“All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.  An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more.  Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.”
Psalm 41:7-9 | King James Version

The Return…

The best challenge for this Series is that we are to gain the correct perspective, talk to our Heavenly Father about those things we need our perspective changed, corrected or re-aligned…  Notice that it was not said to re-align God’s Mind, rather it is us who needs to make sure we are lined up with the Scriptures and God’s Mind on every matter.  Man’s perspective is one thing, but God’s Perspective is Holy different.

The Focus…

The focus of this portion of the Consider The Source Series is the third set of images, which are more Fall oriented with deeper colors taken from a bouquet of flowers.  Thanksgiving is normally thought of and shown through the use of Fall colors, which abound in the prints used.  Indeed we can respond in light of the Scriptures, even through how we are to Encourage others.  How are others taking what you say?  They may very well be Considering the Source by how each of us speak, act or carry ourselves.

Encouraging others, as well as ourselves, can very well be an exercise of us putting into action our desire to prove God and take Him at His Word.  I’ve found over the years that even with folks that a disagreeing time has been experienced, that when it is all said and done – the person deserves to be lifted up in prayer, which may more importantly change US/ME before we see any change in the other person.  God very well could be showing us that it is really US/ME that needs to change, not what we think needs to be changed in the other person.

Could this Series be a helper for each of US in doing so?  Personally, I already know so…

Dedication

This Spotlight feature is being dedicated to two VERY special individuals to our family.  We’ve known them for for 13 plus years now.  They have to be two of the most involved folks we’ve ever encountered – if there is phone service and enough battery available for the phone, they are going to be talking to someone.  A large part of who they are is tied to being in peoples lives.

My very first Series done for an individual is the I AM Series – one of which hangs in my office at work, another in our living room and little ones here and there.  That Series will be coming to DeliverTheWord.com shortly and an updated set is being designed of them.  The prints have gone all over the world both in physical means and electronic mediums.  One of the seven (7) designs created hang in homes of some of the dearest people I know, love and care for deeply.

These two individuals make life investments in others lives – even when it may not be popular to do so.  They do so without any applause, little or no recognition – for which they continue sharing a bit of their lives with each person whom they have contact.  They represent, in the most profound manner, this Series of prints.

Who are these two people?  It’d take a WHOLE lot more space than this entire Chronicle to even begin to tell you about them…  We have the distinct privilege to call them Pastor Tim & Ms. Sharon Rabon of Beacon Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina.  A VERY special THANK YOU goes out to Pastor and Ms. Sharon for being willing to invest their lives in the lives of others and ours as they have!  They invest in such a way that others would see the Love of of the Saviour worked out before them in a real and detectable manner.

There are a number of very pointed statements made during the course of Bro. Dwight’s message including:

“Sometimes we allow the smallest of things to bother us.” | “Maybe YOU are the thrower – Are you the stone thrower?

Series Spotlight | Hallelujah! Praise the LORD!

Website | http://delivertheword.com/hallelujah

Indeed this Series has been one of Encouragement to all involved!  The tulips photographed for this Series were incredible from the very first time my eyes glanced at their deep red and screaming yellow petals – they echoed the words to a song which had been upon my mind, tongue and lips for a week – Hallelujah, originally written by Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen.  While it is not a piece of music that would be sung in church, it is one that holds a powerful story about making mistakes and things taking the “Hallelujah” right from your lips.  The rendition which is liked the most happens to be of two fellas who both play and sing the song in an adaption which blends both their voices and ability to master the simple – the word Hallelujah.

Even the idea of a “universal” word is a concept that is intriguing because we have a founded concept that all languages are different – but God has shown us something is the presence of this word: Hallelujah!  It simply means Praise the LORD!  It can be defined as such a universal word when tracing it through the many languages that have it present in the vocabulary.  While it is spelled differently, the pronunciation is nearly identical in each and every one of them – a universal word indeed!

This Encouragement Series has five (5) different items included intended at each of us being reminded to Praise the LORD!

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Interesting Fact About Hallelujah

In the many languages that have the word “Hallelujah” in them, there are many different spellings, but it is the only word that universally has the same pronunciation!  The Latin word is “Alleluia”, which is a transliteration of the Hebrew word meaning “Praise Yah”, is where we get some forms of it, e.g.

  • Hallelujah
  • Halleluiah
  • Halleluyah
  • Alleluiah
  • Halleluya
  • Halləlûyāh
  • Hallelouia

Where In The Bible It Is Used

The term or word is used some 24 times directly in the Bible, in the Book of Psalms and in Revelation.  Remember most New Testaments include Psalms and Proverbs in the prints, so even in a “New Testament” they are all available to us for use.

Since the Book of Psalms is a “Song Book”, the times occurring there it is used as a request for the reader or group of readers/hearers to join in lifting Praise toward God.  Simply put, it means to “Praise the LORD!”

Interesting to note on this Series is that we each “see” emotions in various ways…  Oftentimes it reminds us of personal trials, tribulation, or maybe satisfaction and completion.  Ask yourself this question, “What does the word Hallelujah! remind you of?”  Is it possible that there may be a negative event that taught you how to say Hallelujah!, or would it be a positive one that makes it ring from you unashamed?  Whichever the case, we can as Christians say this “joyful word of praise to God” wherever we find ourselves – which is the point of this Series!

Series Spotlight | For This Cause

As is often the case with each Series that is developed, there is a special “someone” or an event that impacts “those” around us in such a profound manner, that we know not what else to do, say, or offer – but to point to God’s Word.  In seeking to be an encouragement, there is a special ingredient one must have in order to make the impact “on” that person’s life or to make an impact “in” that person’s life – that ingredient is the “cause”.

Interesting enough for this set of ten prints started with a recipe from God’s Appointment Book, which turned into the prompting of the Holy Spirit in me, for what would become a stabilizing factor for not only the intended individual, but for their entire family.  One must understand, I did NOT have the “cause”, which we would instinctively turn into the word “because”, most often it is generated from the following words: who, what, when, where,  and how.

This series was launched out of a sermon and grew into a set from my personal Bible study, with a focus that has become VERY special to me – just as the person the very first print was given “For this cause“…  So special in fact, that as the design was completed for the African Daisy, pulled down a print from my wall in the office, popped out the glass, exchanging the image so that I would DO exactly as the Holy Spirit had prompted me.  GET THIS PRINT OVER THERE – DO SO IMMEDIATELY.

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

The Response – PRICELESS

The For This Cause Series blossomed into a set of 10 vibrant images with ever more powerful Scripture presentations, beginning with a statement that should be upon each of our hearts for each and every person we pray for:

For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
Colossians 1:9 | KJV

We indeed are honored to pray for this family who have grown to be “special” to us, which we have been so the much more encouraged by them, as we seek to “continue to pray for them enough of everything, no more, no less, not over, not under – just exactly ENOUGH. Period.”

The Desire – FULFILLED

Something that had never crossed my mind, which came home to roost so to speak, is the following statement:

I have my own flower garden in my office, thanks to you.

It is the desire of my heart to provide a message of encouragement through the lens of a camera, seeing not only God’s Handiwork, but to also presenting in harmony God’s Word, such that we have all the reminder we need for wherever our eyes might look…

The phrase “for this cause” appears 24 times in the Bible, only once in the Old Testament and 23 in the New Testament.  Thus the 10 prints for this series are built around this specific phrase and speak of Lord and what He has done for us already, taken from Colossians chapter 1, verse 9 through 17 of the New Testament.  It speaks of His love for us.  These are just the tip of the iceberg so to speak, but are a wonderful place to start in knowing He loves us!

Series Showcase | Talents Through Writing

Website | http://delivertheword.com/talentsthroughwriting

Talents Through Writing is a “different kind of Series” than the standard Website developed for DeliverTheWord.com. A creative outlet is just that place where all the stuff goes when one is not sure where it is supposed to go, or is it?  In this case, we are talking about the Ever Creative Mind (ECM) of a teenager that writes all kinds of things that are just as creative and thought provoking as her ever increasing sense of humor.  Wonder where she gets that from???  We may never know…  There are a few people who would challenge the notion of the “where”…

Paying attention to what is going around us, with a listening ear for what the Holy Spirit will Whisper to us requires us to both hear and see. Rarely can I recall that the call to duty was a screamer, most often in my experience it has been when a still moment of paying attention and all being cleared off of my “agenda”, when the Whisper comes. No doubt what caught my attention with this poem is the factor life is made up of Whispers indeed, if only you and I would listen for them. To realize those in need are right in front of our very eyes takes time spent with the Father in prayer, reading His Word and putting forth the desire and action to Serve our Risen Saviour.

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

We have been entrusted with many talents each, an ability in which God the Father has a purpose, to be used to point to Him.  The Lord was about His Father’s business, while He was here, how the much more we should be.  As our example, Christ over and over again has taught how to do so and as our Saviour had made that way possible for us to DO so.  Not an “almost”, but that we would persuade others to the Loving, Merciful and Complete knowledge of the Son of God came to Save us one and all.

While each of these works may not quote a verse of Scripture, we can see the working of the Holy Spirit in the lives that they touch, as Melissa and I have in our daughter.  So can you join us, as we seek to share with a lost and dying world, that while things can appear to be void of what they are chasing after, we continue to Seek for the Master – and we KNOW He is Waiting…

The Beginning…

The first poems and limericks came a number of years ago, but the first one set to an image is “Two Roads”, which is the one that set the passion into gear on March 20, 2008.  Many poems have followed, which is what will make the “Talents Through Writing” Series different, because it will continue to grow with each poem set to photo or graphics compliment to be shared with everyone who needs to be Encouraged.

The Story of Two Roads…

Just where does one start when it comes to giving a best attempt to explain something that is orchestrated so perfectly that there is NO way in this world in which you could EXPLAIN it? This may take a while… The following scripture is just a “starting point” which goes a long way in the direction of how AWESOME and MAJESTIC our Lord Jesus Christ truly IS:

“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.“
Isaiah 55:6-9 | King James Version

While attending Pastor’s School in Hammond, Indiana with the Pastoral staff of our church, for which there were SO many areas of change for me – that this page could NOT possibly hold – came change. A series of events would forever change our families “idea” or “view” of God’s thoughts and ways, for which timing was the key to understanding the significance of happened. Simply put, Courtney wrote this poem for her Dad while the Holy Spirit was working on his heart, then called at the “exact” moment a commitment was being consecrated before the Lord with his Pastor leaving the poem on his voice-mail for him to hear. An excitement was fostered by all those involved knowing that God knew and He orchestrated the “show me” of a lifetime, which this poem serves as the reminder of the great things He has done.

The Return…

Courtney has hand picked who has gotten a copy of the print for the most part – the first being Ms. Patti Lilly, her first grade teacher at Raleigh Christian Academy.  Ms. Lilly cried when she received it, giving Courtney a hug, long hug – letting her know how special it was because it was designed with a “Lily” in the print which would be a reminder to her of Courtney.  Nearly everyone who has seen it, especially those special people who have one hanging on the wall of their home, say she has a way with words that beyond that of her age.  Everyone who has the opportunity to read it has shared a blessing the are reminded of while doing so – no one leaves the same as they came for the first time they read it…

The Focus…

Each of the prints designed have a thought provoking and often serious tone to them, which makes it all the more difficult to find just the right design, photos and presentation to capture the essence of what it is to assist in conveying.  An example would be “Precious Is”, the sixth print in the ribbon following the Dedication section.  The discussion was challenging, with the poem coming to me in a couple of hours, with a “here Daddy, now make it look pretty” – somewhere in there was a “DON’T CHANGE ANYTHING!”.  It took me six (6) hours to find just the right combination of elements, typefaces and color choices to produce the eye catching design – which carries a MOST powerful message.

Dedication

This set of prints is dedicated to Dr. Randy & Ms. JoAnne Cox at Beacon Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina. Ms. MaryJo, Preacher Cox’s first wife who went home to be with the Lord several years back, was very fond of Courtney, as was Ms. MaryJo VERY special to Courtney.  Just days before Ms. MaryJo passed, Courtney wanted to go see her but was afraid to do so because of the knowing time was short.  We took another framed print of “Two Roads” to the hospital with us, stayed for a while, talking and praying – then Courtney wrote one of the sweetest notes anyone could even imagine telling of her love for her to the family.

Several times since then, Preacher Cox has always gotten a bear hug from Courtney as he has told her how proud Ms. MaryJo would be of her.  Added to that blessing is Ms. JoAnne who from the very first time meeting Courtney told her that she must be the “special young lady” that “Randy” (I’d NEVER call him that…) had spoken of and the one who wrote that beautiful poem! It hangs in their home today, as it hung there for several years before.

Words cannot express the influence Preacher Cox has been to me, especially over the past four years and a few months. His dedication to our church, our Pastor, our Saturday Night Men’s Prayer Time – all follow-through times – has been an Encouragement that moves, one that shares, one that cares…

What talents, gifts and abilities are we as Believers using for the Cause of Christ? This Series will continue to grow and the talents of at least two people will continue to grow in the Lord – my daughter and her dad.

Series Spotlight | Know, Love, Fear & Obey

Website | http://delivertheword.com/knowlovefearobey

This Series brings back one of the most dynamic and convicting sermons I’ve ever been blessed to hear!  Bro. Kenny Cousar, son of Bro. Don and Ms. Vicki Cousar, asked the congregation a question that could only make you sit on the edge of your seat for you were preparing to STAND UP.  We got an introduction to a four word challenge which is the following:

KNOW | LOVE | FEAR | OBEY

The question he asked us:

“What Is It That Brings You to Your Feet?”

We cheer at games, races and events – why NOT for four of the most thought provoking statements known to mankind:

  1. Glory of God – the Fact We Know Him…
  2. We Must Love Him with ALL of Everything…
  3. We Ought to Lower Ourselves to Him…
  4. Doing what He asks of and Enables You…

The following is the first of the four images – which should read for us: KNOW – Glory of God – the Fact We Know Him…

Presenting the four (4) images in this series in order: Know, Love, Fear & Obey. There is nothing “subtle” about this set of prints or the images which were selected to make them up. They serve as a constant reminder to me especially, because one set (of several) is installed right above my computer which remind me daily in my office of the “Truth” preached to us by Rev. Kenny Cousar!

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

The verse of Scripture which these points and challenges were drawn:

“Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.”
Jeremiah 9:23-24 | King James Version

All four of the prints are shown in the following ribbon so they can be seen in order.  A very visual means of seeing what the LORD delights!  Have someone in mind who would be Encouraged by Knowing that God Loves them too?  I do – going to send that person an e-Courage card right now matter a fact!

This set of four prints sits right above my desk in the office printed on Kodak Endura Metals Silver (only can be lab processed) – each of them “glisten” and have incredible depth, as well as color.  You may ask yourself why would that be done? Simple – to be a reminder EVERY day when entering my office of the correct process and order to submit.

Series Spotlight | Be of Good Courage

Website | http://delivertheword.com/beofgoodcourage

Right in the middle of a Bible study is where some of my best nuggets are discovered, which is how this one came about.  After finishing up the Bible study that prompted this one, decided to venture into it to see where the word “courage” would lead.  A constant was “be of” or “be of a”, then the word “good”.  As is often the case, the digging got GOOD fast!  Didn’t even have to guess which photos would be used for this Series – I’d just taken them “in the rain” at one of the rose gardens in here in town.  An immediate person came to mind and a prompting – just as clear as any every heard – there is a special person who needs this…

For a few minutes, thought about going to bed, but there it was again – no, NOW.  Hadn’t put it together until the very first photo placed into the frame in the design software – it is the image below.  A beautiful red tea rose bent over as if it were someone’s head hanging downwards with water droplets everywhere – a display of shedding tears for an extended period of time.  Immediately, without question, knew what this was all about.

A dear couple, friends who are Missionaries, have lost both of their dogs within two weeks of each other.  Those two dogs, Priscilla and Precious, were a large part of their lives for over 10 years, who have traveled with them everywhere.  Our dear friend responded that she thought it was meant to be a “gentle gesture” of something soft and pretty, but she let me know it struck her quite differently – WHICH CAUSED ME TO SHOUT!!!  Why?  Because the Holy Spirit had prompted me for the EXACT response she sent back to me VERBATIM!  That still, quiet voice, PROVED one more time that if I’d just LISTEN, DO what is asked, WHEN it is asked for, HE will deliver more than we could EVER think would be possible.  Praise The LORD!

Notice: the rose is not damaged, the foliage is not torn or discolored and the droplets of water are not clouded at all, they are pure and clean.  Those photos were taken a week before they would be needed for this Series – God knew when I had NO idea how they would be used.  Red roses happen to be this dear friend’s FAVORITE color of rose.

Courage is not only a mindset, but it should be a “heartset” consideration for each of us. In preparing this Series, a very specific person came to mind, which the Holy Spirit prompted me to follow through to remind them to “Be of Good Courage” right in the middle of their situation of heartache. I’ve learned not to “wrangle” with the prompting, although it would have to be admitted that sometimes a distraction can make way of a stray…

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage

Each of us of course respond to our daily challenges in different ways, whether in response to a belief that is challenged or a conviction which we are faced with defending because of ridicule and criticism. The world would have us believe that we have to “do” this thing or that to increase our “ability” to face those things that beset us… While those things appear to be “good” on the onset, there is likely a problem area we need to examine in ourselves a little closer to us than we may consider – TRUST.

Trusting is a multifaceted act which is built over time in order to better and more fully understand. It is something that we can demonstrate to others, even without saying a word – giving credence to the cliché “actions speak louder than words.”  Trusting can also be seen in our speaking, how we convey dissatisfaction or even satisfaction on a matter that is controversial or in support of the Word of God.

We also have to be reminded, as in the Scripture verse to follow, it is the LORD that does which is good in His sight:

Scripture

“Be of good courage, and let us behave ourselves valiantly for our people, and for the cities of our God: and let the LORD do that which is good in his sight.”
1 Chronicles 19:13 | King James Version

These seven (7) words give us a “short version” of the Scripture verses used in the Series – they help me realize they are not only instructions, they are promises that He can and will keep for even ME!

  1. Strong
  2. Behave
  3. Fear Not
  4. Arise
  5. Wait
  6. Hope
  7. Help

We can also strengthen others, provide solidarity and resolve by keeping our hope in the Lord and waiting for His answer, realizing it is His to answer to begin with, for His ability is not plagued with our weaknesses.  Rather, He is where our strength originates.  It is interesting that the purest use of the word “courage” would be almost be untraceable if it we were to not look it up in the Old Testament – which is where all seven (7) of the verses originate for this Series.

Surely we as Christians would want to “Be of Good Courage” to all those around us, for He promises to strengthen our own hearts and has given us the Hope of all generations. Speak of Him as “My God”, “My Redeemer”, My Good Courage” noticing that change in us as we seek to serve Him!

Someone needs to be ENCOURAGED by EACH OF US – even just now.  Will you listen for that person who needs to hear those precious words…  Be of Good Courage…

Volume 1 – Issue 2

Welcome to The Encouragement Chronicles | Volume 1 | Issue 2

The EXCITEMENT is building as DeliverTheWord.com has slowly but surely taken off and has begun to be used by others outside of just our church here in Raleigh, North Carolina!  We are Encouraged by all of the questions, sharing, Facebook likes, e-mails requesting to be added to the e-mail list and of course all the folks who have come to us to say “We didn’t know you did this stuff, when did you start?”!!!  Right up to this thought today with the preparation of this issue, have had folks wanting to know what has been going through my mind in preparing this issue.

Do remember this is the once a month, large issue if you will, showcase manner in which The Encouragement Chronicles highlights the goings on of things happening with DeliverTheWord.com.  These editions will be a tad bit larger than the Announcing Encouragement feature which begins this week, so naturally it is going to provide everyone with a more power packed collection of things than a single announcement would include.  Still of course want to make sure that just the right mix of information and updates are provided, making it an item that each of us look forward to getting every month!

With this second Issue of The Encouragement Chronicles want to challenge each of us to share the Ministry of Encouragement with others.  As we seek to honor, magnify and lift up the name of Jesus Christ, we need your HELP!  Please consider helping us cast the net as wide as your sphere of influence.  The people you influence are not going to be reached by us in or of ourselves, we don’t know who those folks are!  But you do know who they are – and – you are more likely to know what area they need to be Encouraged.

Series Showcase | And He Shall Be Called

Website | http://delivertheword.com/andheshallbecalled

In looking for a Series to be the Showcase, one doesn’t have to look any further than the one that is being presented here…  And He Shall Be Called… Jesus Christ!  The original image used, which was given to a dear friend, utilizes a beautiful set of white daises snapped on my phone.  From the very first development for the presentation of the site, support garnered from those two special people helped me understand through even the waiting to develop it from several years back was “worth it all” and the timing was JUST RIGHT!

This series “And He Shall Be Called… Jesus Christ” has developed into a FANTASTIC and AMAZING project stemmed from seeing a poster a couple of years ago, named the same as this set of prints. All in all there are 53 prints designed for this series to match each name pulled together for this project.

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA)

All but two shots are actually from blooms from our raised flower beds at our home in Raleigh, N.orth Carolina.  Out of those 53, the great majority of them (thirty five (35)) are gladiolas.  Each of the prints is set to the same layout, with basic color presentations, putting forth a rich, beautiful black glossy background with two colors of gold presented by an intricate work of vines.  The verse designation presented in each print is made ready in a dedicated marquee, with the appropriate Scripture verse designation.  Every print has the upper left presentation of “And He Shall Be Called…” and the bottom right presentation of “Jesus Christ” inside the floating photo frame for a finished look.

Just as it would be in a Red Letter Edition of the King James Version Bible, the words of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ are indicated in red.  All other Scriptures are presented in a light gold, with the Scripture reference being made in a darker gold for each print.

The Beginning…

While attending a mens conference on a Friday evening in New Bern, North Carolina, a poster intrigued me out of the corner of my eye.  Had never seen it before that time, but didn’t go over to examine it more closely until the next morning.  Upon closer examination, found that each of the names of Jesus Christ had references for Scripture included in VERY small print.  Pulled out my phone and proceeded to be frustrated with how the poster/print had to be worked with to get a half way decent shot of it.  Decided that it might be better if it was just searched for rather than trying to get a legible shot of it.

This series concept really began with the discovery of the actual poster from Inspiration Art & Scripture [Copyright 1996] (http://www.inspirationart.com/) in 2008.  The poster contains the 53 names with references beginning with “Advocate“, and ending with “The Way, The Truth & The Life“.  After passing the poster by a few times, then seeing it another couple of places, my attention was perked enough to do the research to find the names and Scripture references to design this set.

All of the names were included in a design build a cohesive Series.

The Return…

Amazingly enough, most every person who has seen them in person has been able to find one that really speaks to them and they always have a story to go with it!  Can a print really evoke in a person to share their testimony?  For certain and AMEN! We’ve witnessed it over and over again – which NEVER gets old.

While the Encouragement was meant to be for the recipient, the giver has received SO MUCH more because of the heart warming sharing.  What better could be shared than sharing the Lovely name of Jesus Christ?  We each should give the return to the ONE that is WORTHY – the Lamb of God.  Seeing how this works???  Giving Praise winds up with one of the names in this Series!

Scripture

Mediator
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”
1 Timothy 2:5 | King James Version

The Focus…

Each print has a name from the poster utilized along with the actual Scripture where the name is referenced or taken from.  The flowers/blooms used in these prints are rich, bold, earth toned images which were incorporated to give a solid visual impact against the black and gold framing and lettering.  The striking colors are meant to catch a persons eye such that they would be interested enough to make a change in motion and make effort to read them.  The names are indeed His names, utilizing His Word, which presents Scripture to all that will read, ponder, be Encouraged and believe.

Dedication

This set of prints is dedicated to  Bro. Ricky and Mrs. Gwen Tippett at Beacon Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Both of them have Encouraged me greatly through the time and process of tossing ideas, asking for honest reviews and of course the ever flurry of e-mails they have endured!  Even Bro. Ricky has been recipient of a couple of prints…

Mrs. Gwen has a “flower garden” she calls it in her office at church – fantastic surprises of all kinds – which really are thank you’s for putting up with me!

To the both them – Thank You!

What does Jesus mean to you?  What name would you share with others that is personal in your reference to the Saviour?  Who is the Lord to you and me?

Series Spotlight | Selectives

Website | http://delivertheword.com/selectives

There are two very special people in my life which this Series directly impacted in a manner somewhat, totally unexpected… Sound like a conundrum??? As soon as the “according” image was finalized, zipped it off in an e-mail to one of our Pastoral staff, who just “happens to be” an ardent UNC fan.  Had tossed a note with it, letting him know that he was the very first person thought of when it was being chosen as one of the final phrase images.  To my pleasant surprise, Bro. Tim immediately sent me back a wonderful e-mail reply AND set the image as his background on his computer screens.  They remained as that background for quite a while, that was until his daughter was born, then…

The second of the images is the one seen here which was built around the word “reaching” utilizing an owl which takes a “little” time to tell the full story – since this is a Spotlight – will keep it short…  Sent this one to to my “more senior” friend, who just happens to be a Deacon – we still haven’t figured out how that happened…  He was, in a word, blown away with the image and story – he just LOVES my stories, especially when they are PAGES and PAGES of woven storytelling.  It is this photo specifically which sparked his attention that I needed to let others know that this type of thing was being done.  Hats off to you Bro. Steve, you’ve convinced me to be “reaching” a little past where I was, to get in on the blessing of others being encouraged!

All of the presented items, references for this specific and special series are from multiple studies and sermons listened to – jotted down on trusty Post-It Notes to keep them organized.  This particular set of prints was developed from selective places where words jumped off the page so to speak, which has prompted them to be called the “Selectives Series”.

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA)

From the very first one developed, words like “delight”, the concept of being “selective” came upon my heart.  That first reference was tied to Psalm 1:1-2 – KJV as shown in the following Scripture reference.

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Psalm 1:1-2 – King James Version

The very idea of delighting being a more permanent pleasure than a sudden joy and not being dependent on a limited burst of excitement, was a satisfaction which I knew already, through the Salvation of my soul.  Futhermore, our walk with the Lord is to be our “delight”, from which we draw all that is suppose to satisfy each area of our lives – every area of our lives should be in harmony with God’s Will for our lives.  Our witness to others should show through our selection of God First in our lives!

It is hoped that this list of “selectives” is one that will help each of us to yearn for the Book, one that has been prepared for us such that we would be changed more into the image of His Dear Son, Jesus Christ, the more we immerse ourselves in its hallowed pages and choose to “select” His Way over ours!

Series Spotlight | A Place For You

Website | http://delivertheword.com/aplaceforyou

Have been sitting on this special set of prints for a long time actually.  Each Series gets a folder with the name of the Series printed on a label.  Knew from the very beginning of getting the material which would ultimately lead up to the creation of this set would be one of those special sets.  Little did I realize how special this set of prints would become to a couple of folks who immediately grabbed hold of what Bro. Horne has in real life practice in the church where God has him serving joyfully as the Pastor…

Ever wonder just where your “place” is?  Just as questions like “Is this your place?” as it refers to where a person might live, every one of us desires to have a place to “belong”.  This WONDERFUL little set of five statements struck me immediately upon seeing them the very first time – which it is my hope they will you also.

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA)

It has been some time since the opportunity has been presented to attend a service at Union Chapel FWB Church in Chocowinity, North Carolina.  It is indeed the place where I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour and spent my freshman and sophomore years in High School. A few things have changed since our family lived around the corner from the church, one of them is the Pastor of Union Chapel.

A few years back at a conference in Walkertown, was introduced to a wonderful preacher – that man is Rev. Henry Horne.  Every time he comes to mind, plenty of good memories of our time there and the people we grew to love are recalled.  Two of those people are Bill and Gayle Hill, who attend the same church we do now!  Added to that, the “Intern” Youth Pastor/Director was none other than Rev. Jeff Jones who is the Pastor of Hilltop FWB Church.

Rev. Henry Horne has made these statements, putting to shoe leather so to speak, as an indicator of what they desire for their church to be:

  1. A Place of Worship
  2. A Place of Learning
  3. A Place of Enrichment
  4. A Place of Friendship
  5. A Place of Service

All together they are combined to make up the name of this Series – A Place for You.  Are we actively seeking to help others understand that our local assembly of Born Again Believers is a “Place for” them?  Do we tell others about our SPECIAL PLACE?  Can the person sitting, standing or in the general vicinity of you and I look at your or my hopeful and joyous life, being able to tell that Holy Spirit is in control of you and me?

Do they have that firm invitation that says “A Place for You” is being extended because you are showing forth the Grace of the Living God to them through all that you do?  Have you and I spent enough time in the Word of God to know that same invitation has been extended to us, for the LORD has for us prepared a place for Eternity with Him.  We should be able to say to the Father, I’ve A Place for You – In all that we do, say, go and even think about – absolutely everywhere!

This final work has been purely a work of Encouragement fueled by prayer, fasting and biblical focus.

DeliverTheWord.com is a site of sites if you will – which already contains over 100 individual sites (and growing), as each Series has a site theme which sets it apart from all the others. Some 49 or so of them are turned on right now, with the remainder of them being worked on, tweaked, updated and content being added.

Series Showcase | The Love of God

Website | http://delivertheword.com/theloveofgod

This incredible story involves two ladies, Ms. Nancy M. Cook and Dean B. Strickland.   Ms. Nancy is a dear friend who, along with her husband Bro. Jack, serve the Lord through Amazing Grace Missions.  They are Missionaries to America Through Fairs.  Ms. Dean is my Grandmother who, along with my Grandfather PaPa, live in Knightdale, North Carolina, whom I cherish greatly.

This story also involves a few other things including two sets of roses, one set taken at a dinner and the other are my Grandmother’s Ball Mountain Roses.  Another would be a hymn written by Frederick M. Lehman | 1917 | The Love of God.

Each of us should ask ourselves at least once daily “What are we to be doing with whom we are listening to?”, for that is what this series is ALL about.  This “little bit of encouragement” came to be by the way of two things: paying attention AND following through with the simplest of requests.  The paying attention part had to do with getting my eyes off my “self made challenges” and placing them on a couple whom our family has so taken to, that when something is amiss, all three of us start asking “What’s wrong with Ms. Nancy and Mr. Jack?”  The following through part was JUST as simple, but would have NEVER come to the light of day – if it hadn’t been for “The Love of God.”

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA)

The Beginning…

After several days from the time the Cook’s had left from Raleigh, North Carolina, we began to be a little concerned that we had not heard from them, as they had left out on the way to the great state of Georgia – Jefferson to be a little more precise.  As I’d had some time to snap a few roses on the Thursday before, started working on them to see if anything could be put into some type of a set.  The roses came from an absolutely incredible group of corsages purchased for a celebration dinner in Wallace, North Carolina which took place at the Mad Boar banquet hall.  The corsages were made with multiple strands of fresh water pearls as the banding and petite red rose buds.

The very first photo chosen to check quality, lighting and to see if there was anything which could be used provided to be a very subtle, but rich color set image which immediately was impressed upon me to drop a line to Ms. Nancy, include the photo and a note because it was troubling me that something was wrong.  Prayed about the situation, then fired off an e-mail with a photo of just the corsage.

My initial message to Ms. Nancy was one to inquire from a funny tone, while also letting her know that we were concerned for them – all three of us have detected a moving in the troubled waters so to speak with some prolonged difficulties.  The Holy Spirit impressed upon me to make the contact, with that EXACT photo.  Knowing that she liked red roses made it make more sense to be me, so without hesitation, attached it to an e-mail and clicked send – having NO idea what would come next.

The Return…

Ms. Nancy zipped me back an e-mail early in the morning the following morning with the first of a two part series of sharing, heartache, encouragement, praise, humbling and of course a healthy dose of bantering!  Told her of the detection of some anguish and heartache detected in her phone calls and e-mails, which included singing the “The Love of God” and indeed that it would be WORTH IT ALL.  One will NEVER know what a person is stumbling over, wrestling with, being hindered by or what is going on in the process of a day – if one is not willing to put down self and make an investment in another persons life.

It is my DISTINCT pleasure and HUMBLING honor to be used in such a manner of encouragement to those whom God the Father has ordered to our paths, where the Lord Jesus can be shared and leaned upon, and in a manner most sweet, the Holy Spirit work through ME.  Even through the midst of challenging times and troubled situations, it is MOST wonderful to see the Counsellor at work, in concert with an effort to use a gift given to me to encourage another – sweet indeed…

Hymn

The Love of God | Frederick M. Lehman | 1917

Quickly took a look at my “music vault” so to speak to look up “The Love of God” to find those words, setting them to the first rose/pearl image sent to Ms. Nancy -which “started it all” for this series of prints.  As best as can be discovered, there were two original verses, with the third being added at a later date.

Scripture

“For 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.”
Romans 8:38-39 | King James Version

Are we persuaded, I mean REALLY persuaded, that NOTHING shall be able to separate us from the LOVE of God?  God loved us SO MUCH that He gave the BEST He had for the WORST of us – which includes YOU and ME – so that we would KNOW His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ!  How we care, how much we care, how we go about that care – will be guided by what you and I WILL NOT let separate us from “The Love of God” – now and forever.  We’d be well to heed EVERY prompting of the Holy Spirit to speak with EVERYONE He places in our pathway.

The Focus…

By humbling ourselves, we will clearly be able to respond favorably to what the Holy Spirit places upon our hearts to do for the God of EVERYTHING.  Listening takes time to learn to do, that comes from our willingness, as well as yearning after the things of God.  Will others know the “song” that is upon your heart, or better yet, will they tell you the “song” that is upon theirs, because you took the time to communicate and show them how much you CARE?  That my Brother and Sister in the Lord is EXACTLY what this site is ALL ABOUT – pointing EVERYONE to the Cross and being one who will be there to help them get there!

Where Are The Roses?

Dedication

This site is dedicated to two VERY SPECIAL ladies in my life – one of whom I’ve known all but just a couple of years of my life and the second one whom I feel there is a bridging connector that transcends time.  Without at first realizing it, this Series applies to them both and they complement each other just perfectly – there a both just a tad crazy and they both love me and my girls!!!

The first one whom I’m speaking of is my Grandmother Dean – or as I’ve always remembered calling her “My Deanie”.  The “Mountain Roses” which make up ALL of the additional shots for this series were all taken of her rose bushes at my Grandparents home in Knightdale, North Carolina.  Nearly 490 shots (which will show up in multiple Series offerings) were taken of those beautiful bushes and “little roses” that bunch up like pillows.  They are all red – which of course goes with the corsage photos taken at the banquet in Wallace, North Carolina.

The second one whom I’m speaking of is my Big Sis Nancy – who is the individual that the Lord has blessed me with (one could see and TAKE this from multiple vantage and view points depending on time of the day) for more than just building this SPECIFIC Series.  Now that of course that EXACT same trouble that is gotten into multiple times an hour at times is “appearing”, you’ll just have to hear me laughing all the way to the closing letter of the paragraph!

I’ll always be  my Deanie’s Doodlebug and picking at Ms. Nancy (who is a certified NUTCASE, don’t believe me – ask ANYONE…) who has me labeled as “YOU…” – one cannot share ALL my names, it would not leave much to imagination would it?!  To the both of you, this Series would NOT have been possible but for the Holy Spirit prompting me to send a “red rose with some fresh water pearls” and taking an hour or so to photograph those “Ball Mountain Roses” which I’ve seen hundreds upon hundreds of times.  Now the world can be encouraged by God’s Word applied to images that remind the both of you of sweet memories and times of the here and some time ago…

Series Spotlight | We Are Ambassadors

Website | http://delivertheword.com/ambassadors

This Series is a VERY special one for me, not only because of the peoples lives that were touched in the process of developing it, but by our identifying ourselves with the special group we call the “Ambassadors Sunday School Class”!  Be very sure you have all your happenings around you settled because this one will catch you by total surprise – not by what is written, but rather the conviction is will stir up inside of you by way of the Holy Spirit.  Consider yourself warned…

Do you know of anyone that is alone?  Perhaps you are the only person that knows they are…  What if you are that person, would you want someone else to know?  Could it be possible that the person you just had come to your mind doesn’t know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour?  Or is it that they have been so discouraged by time and so many events that they have forgotten Who He is?

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA)

These are difficult questions, which can have so many different facets to ponder…  My purpose in asking them is to challenge you to be an Ambassador for Christ, one who will pray, one who will go to where they are, one who will actively seek to Encourage – that person who is alone…  We are to be faithful ministers (each one of us) as we seek to Encourage others, for we truly can only see on the outside, where God knows the heart.

Even if all we can do is be an Encourager, being faithful to be directed by the Holy Spirit, to deliver God’s Word to those persons we are convicted to do so.  They are the ones who will have to want to rise up from where they are; we cannot.  It matters not what the challenge is or where they find themselves, we each can Encourage.

Please consider being that Ambassador For Christ to all those you come in contact with, especially to that special one who came across your mind who you know is alone.

Series Spotlight | Trial of Your Faith

Website | http://delivertheword.com/trialofyourfaith

This set of prints developed for Pastor Kerby Campbell of Treasured Trials Ministry.  Pastor Kerby, his wife Ms. Kelli and their two sons, Issac and Jack came to warm our hearts at Beacon Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina on Sunday, July 17, 2011.  As part of our “Summer Sunday Nights” in July, Bro. Kerby shared with us his testimony and message of going through and continuing to go through this trial.

Bro. Kerby is a church planter from Maryville, Washington.  On February 17, 2010, he underwent routine knee surgery which involved a failed spinal epidural and resulted in a condition called arachnoiditis, which is a lifetime of severe pain.  Realizing God makes no mistakes, Bro. Kerby wants to give God the glory and help others realize that our trials are treasures from the Lord.

1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA)

The Ministry verse is I Peter 1:7

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.
I Peter 1:7 | King James Version

They want to help each of us give God praise, honor and glory, through our trials, whether they be physical, emotional, financial, relational or mental – realizing they are treasures from God.  Everyone has them…  How will you handle yours?

Whatever the challenge or difficulty, we can be sure to handle each of those in a manner that is Honoring to the God of Glory by the Power of His Son and Saviour Jesus Christ!

It is a place where I post all kinds of work – may be a simple one print piece, specific Encouragement developed for a friend, an incredible sermon outline as preached by our Pastor, challenges brought by one our our Pastoral Staff, or a fantastic concept seen elsewhere that needed to be re-engineered to more perfectly apply to God’s Word. Every concept, design, and print developed on this site is available for the purpose of Encouragement. Click here to go to site.

Would you join us in being an Encouragement to others? No doubt you have noticed that EVERY word that contains the slightest hint of Encourage in it is RED. If it were not for the Blood of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ – we’d have nothing to ENCOURAGE people with now would we?

Just think… There is a Series that has been made available for YOU to Encourage someone with – it’s FREE, it’s FAST, it’s SCRIPTURAL (KJV) and it’s RIGHT… Remember, that’s DeliverTheWord.com!
