         As we obey the Magistrates, we have complete faith that God will continue to hear our prayers and provide a way for us through these uncertain times.

   Romans 13:2-4 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

   TITUS 3:1-2 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.


   This week’s encouraging words of growth focuses on: 

   Happy Holidays to all the Children of God!!

by Apostle Dennis G. Smith

Whatever righteous and holy way that you choose to thank the Lord and celebrate the close of another year, and whatever chosen day that you and your family choose to gather together to celebrate the close of this year, we wish you a joyous time and a happy new year!!!  We hope that you will live your life daily rejecting all the sinful ways of the world.  We know the world as those people that operate in disobedience to the Word of God.

Celebrations can be a time of great joy and pleasant experiences with the neighbors of your community, with family, and with friends.  It can be done without engaging in sinful conduct if everyone commit to honesty and truth.  The food can be healthy and delicious for the young and the old.  It can be a time to remember the things that you have improved upon during the previous year and a time to set goals during the coming year. We can rejoice and be glad in everyday that the Lord God Jesus Christ bless us to live.

Psalm118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

The actual 24-hour period that we call a day should never become a point of sin, it is just another day that the Lord God Jesus Christ has made for us to work and have joy. This is why we should never look on any day or 24-hour period as sin.  Some will say that there are 12 hours to the day and 12 hours to the night, in any case the period itself is not sin.  It is just another time period that the Lord God Jesus Christ has made.  The works that are done during the day or the events that happen within the day is the real point of judgement.  No can say honesty that you are an observer of the times because we all  know that the Lord God Jesus Christ created the Earth in a time period known to us as 6 days.

Exodus 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

The seventh day known to most people as the Sabbath Day was a time period that came after every six days of labor which was made for man to have rest.  In other words there was also a time period after days of working in which a man must have rest.
Mark 2:27 - 28 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

 We labor also to enter into the rest of the Lord God Jesus Christ through our belief because he paid the price for our sins and sent the Holy Ghost to comfort and keep us.

Hebrews 4:10 - 11 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.  Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

The Lord God Jesus Christ has spoiled all principalities and power so that we now have rest from our own works and all the requirements of the ceremonial law of animal sacrifices for our sins and we have the knowledge to rest our bodies for good health.

Colossian 2:13 - 17 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.  Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:  Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

There is therefore no judgement in any Holidays even if you consider them to be manmade holidays or religious worship days.  We donot call a person a sinner because they choose a particular day to remember or celebrate an event that does not promote sinful conduct or attitudes, which is special to them, their family, or their nation.  We must all reach an understanding in our mind that people commemorate different days for many different reasons.  The thing that we are concerned about is whether or not the event is revealing the truth or promoting a lie and whether or not the events in the celebration is promoting sinful attitudes and conduct.  Notice we are only judging the sinful conduct, lies, and attitudes not a particular day.

Romans 14:5 - 6 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.  He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

If we tell our children that Santa Claus is delivering toys by riding a flying snow sleigh guided by rein deer’s flying in the sky, we are telling them a lie. If we tell our children that Santa Claus will be sliding down the chimney of the homes of all the children in the world, we are spreading a lie.  The bible teaches us that all people who continue this lie and participate in this lie will have their part in the lake of fire.  This lie has nothing to do with the day that the Lord God Jesus Christ has made.

Revelations 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

But if your tell them that we worship, celebrate, and believe in the Gospel of the Birth, death or crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension of the Lord God Jesus Christ everyday in our life including the day that some call Christmas then you will be telling them the truth.  We do not know the actual day that the Lord God Jesus Christ was born in the flesh through the Virgin Mary, but we love him everyday with all of our heart, soul, mind, might, and strength with everything we have and possess.

Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

1Corinthians 15:1 - 4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

All true Apostolic Christian Believers keep in memory the gospel which the Apostles preached everyday of our lives.  So have another Happy day of rejoicing in the day that the Lord God Jesus Christ have made.

May the Lord Bless you and Keep you and eternally hold you in the center of his will. 

May he open your understanding that you will come to know that you must repent of your sins and be baptized by immersion in water in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins. 

 Then you must continue in prayer to the Lord God Jesus Christ asking him for the Holy Ghost, calling on His Name which is the Lord Jesus Christ and waiting or tarrying until you receive the gift of the Holy Ghost with the sign following speaking with other tongues as the spirit gives you utterances.  This experience with God will endow you with power.

 Then you must leave the principles of the doctrine and go on to perfection overcoming the love of the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.

 Then you must continue steadfastly in the Apostle’s Doctrine, remembering always that he that endures until the End, the same shall be saved.  In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ who is God Almighty. Amen

 With perfect love,
Apostle Dennis G. Smith
