Our thoughts,

Let me share some insight (though small compared to others); please listen carefully. I speak concerning my experience for all who have since fallen. When you've been shackled in a deep and dark dungeon for decades, falsely comforted by the guarded treachery of wolves and dragons, you learn the blues, the kind of despair and sin only those who have lived it genuinely understand, and when your day comes, when you are finally released humbled, freedom is embraced. Your heart changes very strongly and independently, brethren; you weep, you beg, you break, you submit, you pray, and you are so grateful to see the light from the hole, and taste in the salt, that you know you will do anything and everything necessary to remain free in Christ Jesus our Lord and Master, for He has shown mercy and grace towards us. Parents are to be patient; the path out of hell is arduous; healing takes many years.

Personal conviction; I'm not going back to no cell, and no devil in disguise will ever again manipulate and take advantage of me through his lies and deceit. I've heard the accuser speak; I've been his friend (within and without); his language is easy to identify when you awake, for he is a toxic and divisive phycological abuser.

Caught off guard, I see the "blind spot;" it's the devils since crept into the church I was not ready for. I didn't know how well Satan could handle a Bible in his favor and, through growing accounts, how he could destroy marriages, families, assemblies, and friendships while slithering and whispering among the pews; lesson learned the hard way.

So, Brethren, do you want your sons and daughters again out of the world and into the fold? Keep praying, and don't lie; they've seen the hypocrisy.

Wisdom, my dear fellow saints, more and more. There is a Light at the end of the tunnel; "This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all."

Your servant,
SM

"Cleansing the Temple"

Sermon Sunday: John 2:13-25
EastCoast church of Christ
Moncton, NB, Canada.
Sunday, Sept. 18th, 2022.

"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?"
Things on Mind

Howdy, friends. How are you doing these days?

I won't be doing the podcast this week, though I'll probably randomly go live or upload thoughts from my mobile. I plan on starting again next week (mornings again), but I'll be adding Tuesday and Thursday evenings (8-9 PM ADT).

This week:

Monday was Canada day so friends from church came over and we had fellowship, pizza and a movie.

Tuesday, today, we have a few kids from church sleeping over, the teens will be recording a podcast (so they got my studio set up).

Also, my cousin is coming over to finish the work on our front porch.

I'm currently waiting in line for a haircut 💇‍♂️😀

Wednesday, Josh's birthday (16)🎂... Bible studies with the church and celebration.

Thursday Annik and I are escaping for a day and evening to celebrate our July 3rd Anniversary.

Friday with some yard work.

It continues to be encouraging with the EastCoast congregation, we remain active with our visitors and studies ❤️🙏

Bit of a financial challenge these...

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,

SM
