If God Is Able Then What Is Keeping You From Your Miracle? Luke 18:26-27 “And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved? And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” Henry nelson Matthew 17:2021 says, “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for assuredly, I say to you, If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move from here to there; and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” Amen!


am thankful that we serve an awesome and mighty God! I am glad that He has everything in control even though it seems that everything around us is out of control! I readily admit that there are times that God seems a million miles away, but in reality, He is closer than you think. Amen!

He is as close as the mention of His name! Whatever your needs may be, He is always there to help bear our load. If we are tempted, He is able to deliver. If we are sick, He is able to heal. And whenever we need a miracle, God is still the miracle worker! Amen! I do not want, in any way, to portray our Savior as some kind of errand boy who is at our beckon and call. But, I do want to say that God is concerned about His children, and He is always there to answer the prayer that is ushered out of a heart of faith! It seems that many times the reason why you fail to receive an answer from God is not because you have not prayed. It is not because you have not known God’s Will or Way. But, it is because of a lack of your faith! Amen! It has never been a question of God’s ability or power, for by our text you read that “for with God all things are possible to them that believe!” So if you will allow me again to ask the question, “If God is able, what’s keeping you from your miracle?” We serve an awesome and mighty God!

There is no lack to our God and His mighty power. He is not some gray-headed grandfatherly figment of our imagination that walks stooped over with some weather beaten staff in hand. The God of this Bible that is declared to be the Almighty God who knows no limitations or bounds. He is the Ancient of Days who fills up all space and time! He is the Great Creator of this universe who has made all things including man whom He made in His own image! And what God becomes to us strictly depends upon how we really see Him. How big He becomes depends on how you put the magnifying scope of His Word to your spiritual eyes, and focus in upon a God who is bigger than anything you could ever imagine! Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Amen When you think that the moon is just over 100 thousand miles away from the earth. And Pluto, the farthest planet in our solar system is nearly 10 billion miles away. And traveling even farther, 50 billion miles from the earth is what scientist call Interstellar Space, and even it reach-

Out of the Eyes of a Layman Black Foreclosure In America”


oreclosure on Black owned homes and busiGene Turner nesses are always prevalent in Black neighborhoods in America, Do not get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with America, it’s just some of the people within America. People who own real estate and mortgage companies are the ones who have the power to cause real problems for the homeowners. It seems harder for Black communities, because right now it seems that we are going back to the old days. “Last Hired – First Fired”. This causes a great problem for most people, they can not come up with the money to get things straight because the mortgage company can go up on the payment every few months, because of this, or that reason which you really do not understand because you do not know anything about the mortgage business. They do not tell you that they have sold your note 2 or 3 times to other banks. They do not mention these facts to you. After draining you of all your little money by threatening letters they send you, a letter of foreclosure and it scares you to death, so, in order not to be embarrassed by getting set out by officials we up and leave our homes without any protest, or “Fight Back”. That is playing right into their hands. For your information there is another way. Another way for you to keep your home in tact. There are some people that I know who can make a difference in this matter. These people are feared by mortgage companies, because they know these people understand the working order of these companies and that Is nerve racking to them, because they know

they cannot pull the wool over their eyes. These people I am talking about have helped many, many people save their homes, plus money. If you are in a position as has been described I can help you save your property and money by introducing you to these people, and believe me I know what I am talking about. If this will help you solve foreclosure problems, or problems leading up to foreclosure please call me at the following number. Gene Turner 214 228-9470. I will put you in touch with the people who are willing and very much able to help you. Let us not forget to read our BIBLES, and may God bless you REAL GooD and may He ever keep you in His loving care. Layman and activities please call Gene Turner at 214-228-9470

Sow to please the Sprit


man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we Geraldine will reap a harvest if we do not give Davidson-Hooker up.”_ Galatians 6:79 In the spring, a farmer prepares the soil, plants the seed, and waits several days for the first signs of life. Many weeks pass before a few inches of growth occur and several months go by before it’s time to harvest. Much hard work and patience go into reaping a bountiful crop. The soil of our spiritual field is rich, full of nutrients and moisture; and whether we realize it or not, we are working hard and planting in our field every single day. Let me say that again: Every day as we go out into the world we are planting into our spiritual field. Anything we plant is going to grow and produce a harvest according to what we have planted. Every day we are given the opportunity to go into the field and plant new seed; “His compassions never fail, they are new every morning” (Lamentations 3:22-23). We are also given the choice of which seed to plant. Seeds of faith and forgiveness are essential for our eternal survival. Seeds of hope and trust are necessary for a life of peace and contentment. And seeds of love, purity, worship and praise are the seeds which will make our fields beautiful a fragrant offering to the Lord. But there is another type of seed - the seeds of lies and deception, of worldly passions and self exaltation. unfortunately, once these seeds are planted, they can grow faster and stronger than all competing plants. If allowed to grow, these sinful seeds will rise up to dominate the field and choke everything which draws us closer to God; “The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature” (Luke 8:14). Today is a new day with a new opportunity to plant. We must not grow weary of planting that which draws us closer to God; “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think of such things” (Philippians 4:8). Today, we WILL plant - so let’s plant wisely! Let’s sow seed which glorifies our Heavenly Father and honors Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior; and let’s nurture our field with an unending love. Let’s sow the seeds of a bountiful harvest which is free of weeds as we daily abandon the sinful nature and sow to please the Spirit.

Notes From Union Hope


ur church school lesson was “Walk in God’s path” Judges 13:1-8, 2425. The lesson opens with Israel in captivity again. In all of the lessons for this eld Lloyd T. Morgan quarter we see the on again off again attitude of Israel towards God. Before we judge them too harshly we must take a close look at ourselves and ask are we consistent in our love and obedience to God. The Philistines have oppressed them for forty years but because of his love and compassion for Israel God chose a woman who had not been able to have children to be the mother of a special son, named Samson. Sampson was a nazirite unto the Lord. As strong as Samson physically he was one of the weakest men spiritually he had no self control. He was born to begin to deliver Israel out of the hands of the Philistines. Jesus came to deliver

us from bondage to sin and he did not fail. our morning message was brought by Evangelist Vickie Dean from the subject “Show me something”Jam.2:1420; 26. The point was well made that there are many within the church community that are more talkers than they are doers of God word. The church of old works spoke for them. The world today is looking to the church for spiritual leadership but becomes disillusioned when they see more talk about how God want us to live than they do people that are actually living according to God’s word. There is a saying that drives home the point “I can’t hear what you are saying for watching what you are doing” and “I would rather see a sermon that hear one any day”. As believers we must let our light shine more now than ever because of the darkness that exist in our world. Be blessed Rev 3:2 2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Prayer Closet


o you have needs in your life that cannot be fulfilled by man? Well, with the right attitude, we can find ourselves on the mountain of expectation. With this attitude of Pastor Clarence Henderson expectation, you are just right for a miracle. We are to pray expectantly. Prayer is not a one-way conversation. Just as we allow God to speak to us when we read and study his word, so also we delight in His speaking to us after we have prayed. But at times, we knock and then run away before he opens the door. Therefore, because we now have an attitude of expectation, we learned how to wait patiently on the Lord. ultimately our strength is renewed and our coming out of the prayer closet is better than our going in. Wo! “He rewards us openly”.

From the Mount


ur Sunday school lesson titled, “Walk in God’s Path” Judes 13: 18 and 24-25, the lesson high points were, “We must prepare for leadership, the need for Johnny king God’s direction in our preparation and our strategy to walk on God’s path.” Dr. Johnny King delivered the morning message titled, “Stirred, But not Change” II Corinthians 7: 6-11, his high points were, “Guilt is a means to an end and not an end in itself, repentance is the only true reaction to guild and visible change is the evidence of repentance.” Rev.

n the nFL supposedly everybody is trying to make a run at the Super-Bowl. Believe me there is no set way to get there or win it. The current Champion Green Bay Packers made the play- offs by the closest of margins. The Cowboys Leon Simon won three Championships in the 90’s with arguably the best 53 players. Some teams have won with Hi-powered offenses, lock down defenses, some even with great special team play. Those are the 3 phases of the game. The new England Patriots won 3 with the team concept. I don’t mean to imply that the Patriots were void of talent. But at the introduction of their first Super-Bowl win they had the whole team come out, no individuals. The Pittsburgh Steelers came within a cat hair of winning last year, with the worst offensive line in nFL history. With the exception of Troy Polamolu they might have had the worst secondary in Superbowl history. Knowing this apparently great or good coaching is another way. The Cowboys down through the years are second only to the Steelers in Super-Bowl wins, and it seems they’re going to try the Steelers’ way this year. Great coaching, because they had a

Cowboys middle was as weak as our national economy. The two worst inside Linebackers, had the worst coach Wade (Captain Kangaroo) Phillips. Whether it’s a good idea or not it is a plan. The year the Saints won it, the Cowboys had a field day with their left tackle Jermon Bushrod. Pittsburgh had Carter’s own Jonathan Scott at left tackle and Flozell Adams at right tackle and a 3rd string center. The Cowboys brought in Rob Ryan, as defensive coordinator to coach a defense that was thought to be Super-Bowl caliber in 2010, and turned out to be the worst in Cowboys history. The defensive line is as good as the one the Saints won with. The line backers with the exception of Demarcus Ware and sometimes Anthony Spencer are as weak as can be. And I refuse to disgrace this paper by writing the names of that secondary on it. That’s one of the reasons our economy is in the shape it’s in paying people too much money for no qualifications. no one in the Cowboys secondary should have been starting in the nFL. A couple of them should not have been in the league period! Rob Ryan, the brother of Rex Ryan head coach of the new york Jets and son of Buddy Ryan, former defensive coordinator for arguably the best defense ever; the ‘85 Bears will try to coordinate this defense into respectability, and if he does he should get a head coaching job immediately.

God Bless Men to be what we should be! That includes our Dallas Cowboys...1st preseason game over and ya know, it means a little more this year...Preseason is basically a showcase for younger players, but as the Boyz have a new defensive coordinator in Rob Ryan, we need all the work we can get before the Regular season...Lastest rumor...T.o. comes back to the Dallas as the 3rd reciever? I would welcome this brotha, who at 37 and coming off a knee injury, still has it! Ever heard of a 100,000 dollar pair of pants...Well that’s what Ms. Beyonce is sporting in here latest tour....JayZ is having one of the best week’s ever.

It shows some of the best and worst parts of the human charaacter...Produced by Shaq’s ex Shaunie oneal, this show’s become must see for a lot of folk...Meanwhile, Shaq’s jump off Shawn Darling has brought up allegations that Shaq was so paranoid about Shaunie catching him with his pants down, that he was going to extreme measures to keep her away from his jump-off. In the filing the famed baller is accused of planting a tracking device on his wifes car, using the services of police officers and state attorneys to help him threaten and plant false evidence on a business associate, and even trying to cover-up multiple affairs, including one with a newsweek reporter!
