To all the Saints of God,
     Grace and peace be unto all the Saints of God around the World.  As this Coronavirus Pandemic continues, we are continually reminding the Saints of God that we are obeying the magistrates and following the guideline of the health and governmental authorities for the safety of all people. 
     Health authorities and governmental officials are now advising people to wear face mask in public gatherings, use social distancing, and get vaccinated for your own health and safety from the Covid-19 virus.  In some places wearing face mask is no longer mandatory in indoor public spaces. 
     We are open for indoor in-person services with face mask, social distancing, temperature checks and Covid-19 testing. We are also continuing online services through Zoom, Facebook, and YouTube.   In-person Baptism and prayer service are available by attending our local service on site, attending our services on Zoom, or emailing your request to: or
      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:
The Lord God Jesus Christ is our Guide forever!
By Apostle Dennis G. Smith
Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Let us always remember and keep in our mind that the Lord Jesus Christ Himself is the one that is building His Church, guiding His people, healing us from sickness and diseases, giving us power over devils, comforting us and all other things whether or not they are visible to our natural eyes or unseen by our natural eyes. 

Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

The Lord Jesus Christ Himself is the one performing the miraculous work.  And when we are continuously mindful of this, we will not try to manipulate things on our own.  We will put our trust in Him by speaking to Him in our prayers and requesting prayer from the people of God because we know that all things will work together for our good.  When we hear prayers spoken on our behalf by the Apostle of God, the Elder, Ministers and the Saints of God we know that He will answer our prayers, so we can continue on in our lives with hope.  We have complete confidence and faith that we will always win in life because He has said that the gates of hell cannot prevail against any of the true Saints of God.  So whatever predicament that you find yourselves facing you can speak it aloud or quietly within mind, you can say, “The gates of hell shall not prevail against me”.

Psalms 48:14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

If you focus on the fact that the Lord Jesus Christ is our God forever and that he will be with us even unto the dying of our natural body, then you know that you cannot lose.  You will be victorious even when this natural life ends. You will not cease to exist but will be always in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews13:05 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

In your daily life you have no need to covet your neighbor’s possessions or desire and lust for the world materialism that brings about the pride of life which are violations of the moral law also call the Ten commandments because you know that the Lord God Jesus Christ will never forsake you. 

Desiring to compete with other people for possessions can cause many sins, troubles, and mistakes in decisions in your natural and spiritual life.  So you must learn to be content with whatever financial situation you find yourself in so that evil thoughts and demons will not tempt you to become dishonest and began to commit criminal acts upon other people, or cause you to steal by not paying you bills and robbing God of tithing and offerings.   

When you are content with what you have, you should seek to grow and improve your financial condition everyday by making good choices, increasing your skill level and earnings, being good stewards over what you have and never let lustful desire guide you into dishonest financial gain.  

Being content with what you have does not mean to be lazy or to have no desire for increase in money, it only teaches you to increase your financial situation according to the righteous ways of the Lord Jesus Christ.  

The devils will try to use the statement of being content out of the scriptural context to deceive you by making you think that you have no need to better yourself.  But when the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ is counseling you, you will know that we need to continuously earn money and be productive each day because we must continue to eat, live, pay our bills, and contribute tithings and offerings for the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. And when you decide to live according to the will of the Lord God Jesus Christ, then you can say, The Lord Jesus Christ is my God.

Isaiah 25:1 O LORD, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.

Now once you have declared that the Lord Jesus Christ is your God, you also now know Him on what we shall call a first name basis so that you can begin talking directly to God.  You now have the power to bless you own house, your car, your clothing, and your food and much more by the power of prayer because you know who the almighty God is.  

Can you now see why it is so important to end the confusion of some people who think there are three Gods or who have been taught that there are three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead which is false doctrine.  This false teaching is from the evil thoughts of devils and causes many people to lack the ability to talk directly to the Lord God Jesus Christ because they are confused about who He really is. 

Acts 4:10 -12 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.  This is the stone, which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

But when you know and have no doubt about the fact that there is one God who has given one name to save all men then you can see and understand the simplicity of salvation and can speak directly to God as King David spoke. You can ask the Lord God Jesus Christ to preserve you and be the strength in your life. The right hand is sometimes used to express the power of God Almighty. This then promotes the fact that you are trusting in the power of the Lord God Jesus Christ and therefore you will not be moved.

Psalms 16:1 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
Psalms 16:8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

Because the Lord God Jesus Christ is the one who is watching over you, you will never truly lack the things that you need because He will always make a way for you.  He will cause you to prosper and function while living peaceably with all men when possible. He will forgive you when you confess and repent of your sins so that there will be no need to function in the fear of death while you are facing the daily evil ways of wicked people and devils because His word will correct you and guide you until you will be able to teach and testify to other people.  And if you continue in the Apostle’s Doctrine, you will dwell in the House of the Lord God Jesus Christ for all eternity. This is so vividly expressed by the Prophet King David.

Psalms 23:1 - 6 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Psalms 33:20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.

You can now declare that you are a winner because the Lord God Jesus Christ will be your Guide for all eternity…

We as the Apostle of God, the Elder, Deacon, the Ministers and all the Saints of the Lord God Jesus Christ must always function under His leadership and guidance according to the offices and gifts given to each of us according to His will for all eternity!!!
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 God asking him for the Holy Ghost, calling on the Name of 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
