OH, I Got IT ! by Wanda Hess​​

In Biblical days there were Christians, so were their churches like ours?  
Their churches were different:
They met in people's homes (the 1st Bapt Church did too in the beginning)
They often had to meet in hiding (I don't think we ever had to do that)
Everyone shared their meals and stuff with each other. ( just let it be known that someone needs our help and we step forward).
Just like in our churches today, we come together to pray, worship and learn how to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to the whole world. You know how good you feel being a christian and how it helps you face the trials of life. So why not share with those who suffer by themselves without the holy spirit.
Spread the word too so they can say" OH, I Got It!!​

(Bible reference: Acts 11: 19-20)

Kitchen Korner - Charlene's Banana Nut Bread - by Dolly Lawler

I've made this recipe a dozen times I know.  It always turns out perfect.  Ken's mom gave it to me years ago, hence the name.


1 Cup Sugar
½ Cup Shortening
2 Beaten Eggs
2 Cups Flour
½ tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 TBS. Sour Milk (If you do not have sour milk, you may substitute with 1 tsp. vinegar mixed with 2 tsp. milk.)
4 or 5 Mashed Bananas
½ C. Chopped Nuts

1.  Mix sugar, shortening, and eggs.
2.  Add dry ingredients, then vanilla, sour milk, and mashed bananas.
3.  Add the chopped nuts last.
4.  Pour batter into a loaf pan sprayed with Pam.  Sprinkle top with a little sugar.
5.  Bake in a 350° oven for 45 minutes or until done.

6.  Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.

God Sitting on His Throne - by Ken Lawler

Can you imagine God sitting on His throne watching events unfold on earth? Do you think He has ever stood up like you or I would when He saw some particular event taking place? For instance, you or I would sit on our front porch watching our child play in the yard, but if they headed toward the busy street we would jump up, ready to intervene.
We know from Heb. 1:13 that Jesus is now seated at the right hand of God. We also know from Acts 7:55 that Jesus stood up when the mob was stoning Stephen. What could cause The Father to stand up?
The Bible doesn't describe all of this, but imagine the view in the throne room when Jesus was on earth. You would see God's presence on His throne (John, Ezekiel & Isaiah describe what that would look like). You would also see an empty throne on God's right ready for Jehovah's return to Heaven; the four living creatures (Cherubim) hovering over the throne intoning--holy, holy, holy; Gabriel standing nearby, ready to deliver any message from God; and Michael, in armor, ready to lead his soldiers against any foe God directs him to.
Michael is the commander of the heavenly angelic army. At a minimum he would be wearing a sword and a breastplate. Both of those would be held in place with straps around his waist and across his back. These straps are called bucklers. What do you want to bet that God has risen up off His throne at least one time in history?
When the Roman palace guard was beating Jesus to a bloody pulp, Isa. 52:14 says His visage (appearance) was so marred more than any man [He no longer looked human]. You would have heard a sword drawn from its scabbard, and would have seen God raised up off His throne to grab Michael's buckler to keep him from going to Jesus' aid. That had to have been the worse day in either God's or Michael's existence.
Don't despair over this. Almost 2,000 years after this happened a Southern Baptist preacher from Fort Mill, South Carolina was called to pastor the Bellevue Baptist Church of Memphis, TN. While there, one Wednesday night, he preached a sermon he would preach 1,275 times. Another thing I believe you can bet on is that Michael smiled when he heard Dr. Robert Green Lee (1886-1978) preach the famous sermon --"Payday ---Someday."
You can read about that payday in the book of Revelation.
