My thoughts,...

When a professional athlete finds himself injured by an opponent’s foul play, he is removed for a time of healing before going back out on the field. And pending on the severity of the injury, one can be out of the game for many months. Of course the heart of passion within the player wants to go back out immediately and keep fighting for his team, but such could further injure his faculties, resulting in permanent removal. So the sportsman learns humble patience, allowing the body to slowly heal back into full strength, at times even stronger. His loving medical and familial attention necessary certainly helps expedite the process. And once he can go back out on the field he’s ready with the wisdom his scars produced, both mentally and physically, to win the championship for his Country.

Sometimes we faithful Christians out there in the field get injured by our opponents, both within and without the fold. Some injuries are grievous, taking many months to heal, being the unjust recipients of betrayal, treachery, false witness, abuse, selfish-ambition, manipulation, wicked words, division, deception, lies, baseless accusations, and so on. Even the “law” at times will be wrongly handled to incarcerate an innocent man. Yet we can rest assured that Jesus and His words are there to comfort us back into full health, this indeed if we allow ourselves to learn from His guidance and trust in His will. As much as we’d love to return immediately, we first need to heal the household from the sorrow inside. We’ve witnessed those among us not ready, go back to the fight, and be devoured. But once made well again, we go back out in the trenches and remain victorious for Christ, winning souls for His kingdom. And therein we’ll understand the wisdom of Paul when he said, “my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel.” (Phil. 1:12).

The faithful will know your trials, they will discern the truth and encourage you in such times of pain, “knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brothers and sisters who are in the world.” (1 Pt. 5:9).

Have heart fellow saints, we live in a corrupt generation fallen out of season, and its worldly ways crept into the church leadership. Seek the truth, don’t blindly follow the masquerade (2 Cor. 11:14). The faithful will persevere and await His mighty return (Phil. 3:20), being fruitful till His great Day of appearing (Mt. 24:46).

The EastCoast church of Christ was planted on May 8th, 2022 🙂

"Cleansing the Temple"

Sermon Sunday: John 2:13-25
EastCoast church of Christ

"Cleansing the Temple"
"Water Baptism, Saves?"

In 1 Peter 3:21, we see the explicit inspired words of Peter the Apostle of Jesus the Christ. Was he teaching the Christians of the 1st Century that they were saved by "water?" What exactly did Peter mean within the context? This and more we explore in this exclusive LOCALS podcast session.

POLL question: "was Peter the Apostle married?"

"Water Baptism, Saves?"

They've been building those encampments in Canada also. World powers say 3-4 months, maybe sooner, war will break. How much of this is true? Probably more than we are comfortable with, but not as much as they want us to fear.


I am convinced Paul's thorn was not a physical issue,

Disappointment, discouragement, anger, anxiety, sadness, lack of sleep, lack of hunger; emotions we experience when we see the injustice of evil workers getting away with it on this earth. It is most challenging not to fall prey to temptations when brethren are so ignorant, lacking humble discernment, endorsing, promoting, and financially contributing to a professional liar such as Diotrephes. But we know Pharisees had their devoured loyalists, and Diotrephes has his birds of a feather.

On that coming Day God will set things right, evil will be eternally lost, and many who willfully sided with a factious brute, will be shamed, even notable men in the "brotherhood."

The faithful must focus on the work and continue to serve our Master's local presence and growth, even when it is very challenging to do so.

To those of you who love us, thank you so much for your monthly support, it motivates us to keep going. We are so blessed to have you in...

Rescued - Transferred - Redeemed
The Kingdom of His beloved Son

You've fallen asleep comfy in your bed, and a fire started in your house. You wake to panic as you become aware of your surroundings, trapped by a wall of lavalike heat. You find yourself in danger, where smoke and flames threaten your life. Your neighbors were capable of seeing the threat and had since called for help. The firefighters arrive on the scene and immediately find you in your bedroom--time for a rescue. Are you yet seen in a location of satety? No, not yet. There still needs to be a transfer from the site of dakness, smoke, and fire to an area of light, fresh air, and safety. And so the firefighters guide you out of certain death into a secure location. You have now been saved, not without damage, trauma, and loss. But you've gained your life and get to learn fowared another day.

You've become idle in your sinful behavior and practices. You wake to panic as you become aware of your eternal punishment. A neighbor cares for you enough to share Jesus with you. Will you obey the gospel?

The reception of forgivness was the desired result of all who willfully gave their lives to Christ, submissive to His spiritual operation (Col. 2:11-12). Paul, the apostle, speaking to his brethren in Colossae, was accurate in reminding them of their reconciliation. And how the Word of God they had chosen to hear produced fruit for the Kingdom. The Kingdom was God's preplanned location where all found within would have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

A domain needs a King, Christ Jesus. A Kingdom has boundaries, borders, law and order, and justice. This Kingdom is of a peculiar kind, and we should all seek first legal citizenry (Mt. 6:33). His Kingdom is the body, the church (Col. 2:1,18,24). The body for it has organic members all united for the purposed function--the church fo its assembly, it's family. The way in? Being a repentant believer confessing Christ, immersed into water calling on His name, in order to receive the forgiveness of your sins, being added to His Kingdom, local assembly (i.e. "rescued, transferred, redeemed"). 

This good news of Jesus Christ "was proclaimed in all creation" to give humankind a way out of the flames and sinful consequences. And we are wise to hear its call.

Is your house on fire?

Ref. Colossians 2:13-24

Your servant,
