Message for March 9, 2014 from Pastor Jerry

“Now there were four leprous men at the entrance of the gate; and they said to one another, “Why are we sitting here until we die? If we say, ‘We will enter the city,’ the famine is in the city, and if we sit here, we die also.  Now therefore, come, let us surrender to the army of the Syrians.  If they keep us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall only die.”  And they rose at twilight to go to the camp of the Syrians; and when they had come to the outskirts of the Syrian camp, to their surprise NO ONE WAS THERE. “II KINGS 7:3-5(NKJV)

       Things did not look good to the residents of Samaria.  They were exhausted of supplies and surrounded by an enemy army.  It was only a matter of time before the end as they knew it would come.  Yet, four men decided to do something.  “Why sit here till we die,” said they.  “Knowing” about the army of the enemy they made a choice.  It was better to do something than sit and die.  “But God” was at work for them and they found no enemy army there, only supplies and treasures.  “With God all things are possible!”

       I know that I am “back from the dead” and here with a purpose.  It is not the time for New Life to hunker behind the walls and listen to the enemy howl.  Our God is able to do exceedingly great and mighty things; more than we can think or imagine.  We need things done here at church. I am going to move forward and I need you to go with me.  It is not the time to say “we can’t” but rather to be saying “God can”.

       We need about $5000 to fix our facilities in addition to our regular expenses.  I believe we can believe God and give of ourselves to get things done. I am not willing to sit here and die.  Look at all the empty seats that can be filled.  Don’t think negatively but use your faith.  Are there others who need to hear what we are teaching here?  Trust God to answer prayer and be ready to move.  Expect prosperity.  God created everything to prosper.  New Life has not completed its purpose, and God said He would see to it that we do.  There is no better hope than that.  Let’s attack our enemy to our surprise we might find that there is NO ONE THERE!
