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 continue to strongly encourage people to wear face coverings in public and use social distancing, wash your hands, and get tested to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus.  In some places wearing face mask is mandatory in all indoor and outdoor public spaces. 

     As of November 25, 2020, the City of Atlanta, Georgia remains in Phase II of the Reopening Plan.   Georgia’s “shelter in place” orders have expired for the majority of Georgia businesses. However, statewide orders state that businesses must continue to operate with social distancing and sanitation rules to keep customers and employees safe. The Public Health State of Emergency remains in effect through December 9, 2020.  

     We are continuing limited in-person gatherings to maintain the requested social distancing and online service through Zoom, Facebook, and YouTube.  The “shelter in place” order has expired for Georgians over the age of 65 unless they are “medically fragile.  Baptism and prayer service is continuing using personal protective equipment.


     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:

Sound Doctrine That Cannot Be Condemned (Part 3)

By Apostle Dennis G. Smith

Titus 2:7 - 8 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,   Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.


     In doctrine we show that we are teaching the same thing that was taught on the day of Pentecost the birthday of the Church. That the doctrine of grace, the Gospel of the Grace of God which is available to all men for salvation, is the one and only Gospel of salvation, the good news of salvation; the one and only plan of salvation through believing and obeying the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who is the one and only God almighty.  And since there is no other plan of salvation, anyone that does not teach it the way it was taught by the Apostles is corrupt, and false.  This is the pattern that we must maintain.  We cannot start our own social club and corrupt the doctrine to appease the members of the Club.  Why? Because the social club is not the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.  And when we speak and preach the Gospel without adding to it or taking away from it, our sound speech cannot be condemned.


Titus 2:11 - 15 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;  Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.


     The Gospel of the Grace of God teaches us to deny ungodliness and worldly lust.  So that when the false teacher tells you it is ok to accommodate worldly and sensual pleasure you know they are leading you to eternal damnation in the fires of hell.  The Bible is clearly against such false teachings.  And if you want sound doctrine that cannot be condemned, then you must constantly iterate and teach men to live without excessive drinking and drunkenness, behave and treat all people the right way, repent or turned from their sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost with the sign following speaking in other tongues as the Spirit give you utterances.  This is the only way to deliver sound speech that cannot be condemned.  It may be impressive to have seminars on investment in various markets, but it will not save anybody’s soul.


Acts 20:22 - 24 And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.  But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.


You have got to be able to endure the afflictions and the blessings which come with spreading the word of God.  Many people will come expecting only good times and when the hard times come, they will not endure.  But the Apostle Paul give us a great example in that he did not account his own life dear to himself but was determined to finished the work and ministry that God had given him with joy.  This is the power of the Holy Ghost indwelling a faithful Apostle and Saint of God.  You should now feel the joy of the Holy Ghost within you.  It is the Holy Ghost that makes you apart of the Church, it is the Holy Ghost that chose overseers, and no one can take the Holy Ghost from you.  Jesus Christ is the Holy Ghost in the Church indwelling, guiding, and comforting all believers who are a part of his one and only Church, the universal body of Christ.


John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.


1Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.


The Apostolic Pentecostal movement spread worldwide and is still expanding today because of the moving of the Holy Ghost.  When people come to realize that when they call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that he will answer their call, it brings them to perfect peace in their life and their mind and focus is on the Lord Jesus Christ not the opinions of men.


Isaiah 26:2 - 3 Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.  Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.


The people that focus on the promises of God can now feel and experience the love and communication with God and can attest that he is with them and within them.  And when we come to love this communion and fellowship with God it becomes more precious than our natural life itself.  People who do not believe in communicating with God will call you fanatical even try to imply that speaking in tongues is of the devil, but you will know that they are liars because of your indwelling power to know the truth and the biblical doctrinal proof which is sound doctrine that they cannot condemn.


John 14:23 - 25 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.  These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.


     The Lord speaks here of himself coming to those that love him and making his abode with them.  He is speaking while he is in the flesh and blood body from Mary known as the Son of God.  He is also speaking of the Spirit which caused Mary to become pregnant which is the Father of the flesh and blood body and he is speaking of the same Spirit coming to make his abode and indwell those that love him. He is not speaking of three different persons, but he is speaking of the one Spirit that is revealed or known in a plurality of ways.

     You now know that those who reject this doctrine, or do not teach or follow this doctrine is of the devil, and he, and they have nothing in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  You can respond to their ridicule and evil ways with silence for they have nothing in God.  As I have said before, there is no need to debate an unbeliever who is full of unrighteousness, and wickedness for they have nothing in God.


John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.


We continue with a Message from Apostle S. C. Johnson ……...ADD NOT!!………


Add NOT! (part 3)

By Bishop S. C. Johnson

     There are many now that have heard me and died and went on to a Christ-less grave without obeying what I have said.  There are many now, alive that have heard me and are not going to obey, but you will be in a Christ-less grave.  You are going to give an account to God for what you have heard at my mouth.  Many false prophets shall rise.  Many, Are they here? Who knows it?  Bishop Johnson.

     I drove once from Philadelphia to Canada and I saw false churches from Philadelphia to Canada and back. I did not see one true church.  What is it?  Many false prophets shall come and shall deceive many.

      Here is the gospel now. It broke out on the day of Pentecost.  Jesus said, “to His apostles,” …but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high." (Luke 24:49)

He told them, “ye shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." (Acts 1:8)

 What did He mean? He meant the ones that He had chosen were to carry the gospel to the end of the earth.  And everybody would have to obey what they preached.  Jesus said, “…that repentance and remission of sin should be preached in his name among all nations beginning at Jerusalem.  (Luke 24:47) And it began at Jerusalem. 

     When Peter preached to them, what did he tell everybody.  “ACT2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.  Here is what you are going to obey.  My God, you can be as stiff, praise God, as a bull in Africa. But here is what you are going to obey.  This will limber your neck.  This will take all of the stiffness out.  When you hit the lake of fire, it would have been better that the people were never born.


     Here come the gospel now that they hate.  People call it “Jesus only” doctrine.  You will understand.  Don’t you know it is the devil?  Who in the world would speak slight of the name of Jesus, but the devil?  Old Jesus only doctrine.  I know one thing, the Bible says, ACT4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)   Paul said, "And whatsoever ye do in word or do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. (Colossians 3:17)


You are going to want that name one day. You are going to long for that name one day.  For the Bible says, "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Acts 2:21) (And the Lord's name is Jesus).  You are going to would to God you had run, jumped in the water in that name. Oh, you are going to long for it!  The devil has just got control of you, filled you, made you evil. 

     Preacher walking around with the Bible in his hand—a devil; and a hypocrite fighting against the name, "Jesus."  Whose, preacher is he—the devil's. These blind, hell bound, flesh hunting, world seeking. pleasure desiring folks will follow him.  He is fighting water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, yet the Holy Ghost said repent “…Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift, of the Holy Ghost. (Acts 2:38)

     REPENT. I do not care what church you belong to.  "Well, you say you are a bishop." Repent bishop, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.  
"Oh, I have pastoring for forty years."  Repent pastor!   'The Holy Ghost is talking now”.  You are going to do this pastor.  If you do not, pastor, you are going to wake up in hell. Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ. That means everyone that is hearing my voice from Germany to Honolulu.  


     Do you hear God talking to you?  God did not tell you to join the church, shake hands with a false prophet.  God said, "Repent and baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. (Acts 2:38)

     Now that is what everybody has to do.  The devil has filled the world according to the sayings of Jesus with false prophets, and the people are not real.  The people are hypocrites and do not want to do what is right.  Because they do not want to do what is right—they will follow the false prophets, but the Truth comes on behind giving you warning, telling you what you must do.  If you do not do this; you are lost now.  Not going be lost---lost right now.


Apostle Paul said, "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:" (II Corin4:3) If you cannot see what I am preaching, then you are lost right now.  All you have to do is to let the breath out and drop in hell.  All right folks, we are giving you warning and a solemn warning.

     If an angel…God never started but one Church; and that one Church started on the day of Pentecost where the ones He had chosen, preached it and then wrote it and handed it down to us that you and I would not be mistaken.  You do not have to be mistaken now. The reason you are not in the Truth, is because you just do not want to be.

God said, "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, . . (John 7:17).

John 7:17 - 18 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.  He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.


     Any man will do His will, God will let you know the Truth.  God will either take you to it or bring it to you.  God brought it to you here now when He brought me in town.  Something that I never expected.  Never thought of.  I thought sometimes that I might pass through, but it was a million miles from me.  But God brought it in here, somebody is going to hear it, reject it, and die and go to hell.  


      I am not here for fun; I am here for business.  All right! Remember what I have said, "Every church in the world is a false church, and every preacher is a false prophet unless he lines up one hundred percent with all I preach."  If you can condemn me, condemn me, and get five hundred thousand dollars.  If you cannot, you better run for your life.

May God bless and keep you. May he preserve you is my prayer to God that your soul might be saved.


     No Man could ever condemn Apostle Johnson in his lifetime.  He finished his course with joy proving to the world that we preach the Apostle’s Doctrine which cannot be condemned.  Anyone who walks up on the Apostle’s Doctrine with additions and manmade teachings is not of God.


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 continue in prayer, tarrying until you receive the gift of the Holy Ghost with the sign following speaking with other tongues as the spirit gives you utterances.  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 and 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

 Social Distancing guidelines:

When to Wear a Mask:

Those who are staying home and have no close contact with people who are infected with COIVID-19 do not need a mask most of the time. However, wearing a nonmedical or homemade mask may be helpful in certain situations or for certain populations. Wear a Mask when:

Because homemade masks protect everyone else from the droplets created by the wearer, it is important that as many people as possible wear these masks when leaving their homes. This helps prevent those who may be infectious but are only mildly symptomatic or not symptomatic from spreading the virus to others in the community.

Everyone should remember the phrase: “My mask protects you; your mask protects me.” By increasing the overall number of people who are containing their coughs, sneezes, and other droplets, it will help us control the overall spread of the virus.
