Let God Free Your Nation 7.1.18

Sunday's Message
July 1, 2018


On July 3, 1776 John Adams made an incredible prophecy to his wife Abigail in one of their marvelous correspondences.  He predicted that the day of the signing of the Declaration of Independence would be “celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival...with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward for evermore.” 

How amazing that he would predict not only the independence of the nation but that it would grow from the Atlantic all the way to the Pacific!  He also said that it would be celebrated with “acts of devotion to God Almighty.”  Unfortunately, that part of the prophecy is not holding up very well.  Won’t you come to church this Sunday and celebrate with us the “new birth of freedom” that only God can provide?  Sunday I’m preaching from Ezekiel 37:21-28 on “Let God Free Your Nation.”  He can free us from division, from sin and from homelessness, just as he promised the Exilic Jews in Babylon.

Speaking of births of freedom!  Rhema was born to Cecilia Ningieh a week ago.  She is a precious little baby.  Let’s pray for her, her sisters and her mom and dad.

Join us at 6:00 p.m. on the 3rd of July for a decorating party for our float in the 4th of July Parade, then again at 7:00 a.m. the next morning.  We’ll leave from the church at 8:30 a.m. and march in the parade.  That night we’ll meet at 6:00 at the church for barbecue and side dishes.  Please bring meat and another dish to share. 

May Adam’s prophecy continue to hold true as we have acts of devotion to God Almighty and as we help our nation be free in Christ!


With love in Christ,
