Truth in Palmyra

Some 5th Sunday Singing

Every time there is a 5th Sunday in the month, we do Sunday service a bit differently than usual. It’s pretty traditional around here, and lots of places do the same. We have regular morning service, have an awesome potluck in the fellowship hall, and then come back in for some singing. Then, we all go nap for the rest of the day! We have lots of congregational songs, and folks bless us with some special mucic too. Here you go!

It Gets Sweeter

I’m Blessed

Bogard Press Daily Devotional-False Prophets Are Present at the End

False Prophets Are Present at the End

Matthew 24:11-14

“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold,” Matthew 24:11, 12.

Jesus did His best to prepare His church for His physical absence. Since He was God in the flesh, when He shared with His disciples the things that would take place after His ascension, He spoke with authority. Jesus knew that false teachers would target true churches in order to destroy the work of God. These false teachers would not be irreligious, but would deceptively blend into the Christian crowd with malicious intent. The pervasiveness of false prophets does not destroy the appearance of religion, but seductively leads people away from a genuine relationship with God. More and more churches would be filled with unregenerate people who claim to follow Christ, having embraced a false gospel, which is unable to save anyone. As Jesus said, this would lead to an increase in lawlessness, which in turn would lead to a dramatic decrease in genuine love of God and others. Man-made religion, without spiritual regeneration, leads to the destruction of souls, churches and communities.

How should true followers of Christ prepare for the end times as Jesus warned? First, Jesus wants His followers to expect an increase in the number of false prophets. It is incumbent upon Christians to be able to identify truth from falsehood, in order to discern true teachers from false teachers. Secondly, Jesus challenged His followers to persevere in the truth until the end of their lives. As difficult as it may become for followers of Jesus to combat heresy, genuine Christians will cling to the truth of the gospel tightly, and faithfully obey the command to make disciples of all nations, for the glory of God.

JUST A THOUGHT: Do not allow your love for God and others to grow cold.

A HUGE Spider!

What a perfect illustration this was! Thanks, Mike.

New Hope for Dry Bones

I saw a HUGE spider yesterday. then i stepped back and saw he was tiny next to my house. We should place the huge spiders in our life before God so we can see how small they really are.

Just a Thought

When we compare who God is to who we are, it will make us very humble


Isaiah 55:8-9 

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.

Just a Thought

Like us holding the hand of a child to keep them from stumbling or running into danger, God does the same for us


Psalm 17:7-8 

Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

Bogard Press Daily Devotional-Jesus Warned About False Prophets

Jesus Warned About False Prophets

Matthew 7:15-20

“A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them,” Matthew 7:18-20.

As Jesus revealed the way of God’s kingdom to His disciples, He encouraged them to consider new ways of discernment according to the will of God and not the impulses of man. On one hand, Jesus warned them about harshly judging others and condemning them as guilty before God (Matthew 7:1-5). On the other hand, He also did not want His followers to naively embrace everything they heard. What His disciples needed was a way to discern the difference between those who sought to glorify God, and those who sought to damage the work of God. In today’s text, Jesus advised His followers to look more deeply than the simple appearance of those who exercise spiritual authority.

Like a ravenous wolf that dresses up in sheep’s clothing in order to destroy the work of God. Jesus warned that false teachers would do their best to trick God’s people into believing they were harmless. They would try to gain access to the hearts of believers and destroy their faith. God’s people must exercise discernment. We must see whether the works performed by those who claim spiritual authority match their profession of faith in Christ. Jesus plainly said, that if the teacher is good, his work would be good, like a tree that produces good fruit. If the person is faithless, their work will be of the flesh, evident for all to see. The admonition to God’s people is to observe the fruit of those in authority to determine whether their words will edify or destroy the work of God.

JUST A THOUGHT: Spiritual people produce spiritual fruit.
