The rest of the Youth Revival

Well I’ve gotten around to putting the last three messages up from the Youth Revival. Here they are…

 

 

5 Things that Saved Noah

5 Pictures of a Damsel in Distress

A Life that made a Mark

 

You should notice a slight change in the audio. I have been playing around with the importing quality and the compression. So it should load/stream quicker than the first 14 messages.

 

I will try to work on some more messages today and the rest of the week.

 

A quick note: Sunday’s Messages by Bro. Daniel Flatford have been “Borrowed” so when I “Find” them I will post them as well.

 

We’re also on www.sermonaudio.com/cedarbluffbc be sure to check us out there as well.

Old Sermon

David's Deliverer and his Deliverance


Again, the sound is not that great, but this should be the last one with this quality. The rest should be much better.

Memorial Day Weekend

This weekend is a Holiday Weekend. Most of you have been planning this weekend for a while. I have to admit, I’ve been looking forward to it too. There will be quite a few gone from our church this weekend, some are on vacation, some camping for a few days, some spending time with their family out of town.
My family in fact will be away as well, we’re spending some very much needed time away in the Action Packed town of Pigeon Forge, TN. We hope to get rejuvenated, for work, and church, but honestly this weekend will be about family. We have been so busy with everything else in our lives, that our family time has suffered. Oh yeah, my wife and I still spend time together, still pray together, and read our daughter a book at night, & tuck her in at night, but there’s something missing.
When I preacher or counsel, I tell everyone that there is a balance in the lives of Christians. Priorities if you will are very important in our lives. Here are the priorities in order, according to God’s plan.
1. God
2. Family
3. Church
4. Work
This is a very simple idea, however there are so many that do not get it. I for one, get it, but many times (recent days have been one of them) I forget about it, and my priorities get out of “whack”! I see this in my own life but also in our church, and honestly I could go to any church and find the same thing.
This think that I’m speaking of is a discombobulation of our priorities. I see our folks working all day and most of the night instead of spending time with their families. I see work as an escape from church (if you must escape from church, you may be in the WRONG church). I see Christians, putting everything in the book ahead of God, and their families. Now, there are those that put family ahead of even God, they use family to escape church as well (see above note).
It is my desire to spend time this weekend connecting with my family again, and renewing and reviving my trust, and faith in God. After all, it is because of God that I have a family, a church, and a job. Why not give the Glory where the Glory goes?

This Sunday my good friend, Daniel Flatford, will be taking care of the services. He is a great man of God, and a true blessing to my heart. He has encouraged me in so many ways in the few years that I’ve known him. Please visit our services this week, and enjoy the blessings of God.

P.S. By the middle of next week, I should have more sermons uploaded, including this Sunday’s messages from Bro. Daniel Flatford.

More on the way!

Last night at church I found the CD's from the past few months. So this weekend, I hope to be able to edit and upload some if the sermons to the blog.

I have been asked to get some singing on there too, so I may try to add a few of those.

One of the problems with that is, the copyrights, the other is the quality of the audio. While the preaching volume and quality is fine, the songs are not. Why? Because our piano does not have a microphone, so it sounds very distant. This make the singer sound as if they are sing a capella. With that said, we are working on this as well. I probably will not uplaod anymore sermons today, but will soon...PROMISE!

Post from Maine

God's Whole Council


Pssst....if someone were to sneak in your house during the night and cut one of the minor prophets out of your Bible, how long would it be before you noticed?

............Micah? Zephaniah?

I was thinking on this just the other day. The LORD convicted me that there had been some books of the Bible I had not read for about year when I last read through the Bible.

The Bible tells us something about the words of God.

Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. (Proverbs 30:5)

But he [Jesus] answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)

It is easy to focus our attention on the Gospels and the New Testament isn't it? Then time gets away from us. But even the small books are so important! Let's get back to Zephaniah.

Here we read about God searching His nation. Think about our nation as you read it:

And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil. (Zephaniah 1:12)

Men that are "settled on their lees" means men that are complacient, spiritually stagnent, they are spiritually settled on their blessed assurance! These men say in their
heart that God will not do good or evil. Isn't that so predominent now? I hear it all the time - people that believe in a "divine power" but quote, "He does not interact with His creation". This verse speaks to that. It's a jewel. Couldn't you just hear a sermon on it? :)

Later in the book, it is penned:

Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city! She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God. Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow. Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law. (Zephaniah 3:1-4)

Woah! Does that remind you of the United States? Her officials are roaring lions, her judges are wolves, her prophets are arrogant and treacherous. Haven't many of our priests (preachers) polluted the sanctuary? God pronouces doom on them.

Zechariah doesn't leave us in destruction. It promises restoration at the Lord's return, but in the meantime gives us an important piece of advice:

Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger. (Zephaniah 2:3)

God is good. Amen! Let us not neglect to study the whole council of His Word, lest we miss out on His instruction, blessings and promises. God bless ya'll!
--Beth Montgomery

Sunday Morning Message

Just a quick note about the audio on this message. The battery in the lapel mic went dead in the middle of the message. Sorry about that.

"The Past, Present, and Future of Every Christian" will open your eyes to what we were, but also, what we are, and will be. Please take some time and listen, and if you can, comment on the message either in this post or from the podcast site.

Wednesday

Halfway through the workweek, some call it "Hump Day". Well yes we are over the hump, but really its the top of that "hump" that I'm excited about. You see at the crest of the day I get to go to church to sing the best songs in the world, hear and preach the greatest message in the world, fellowship with the greatest people in the world, and Worship the Greatest God and Savior in the world.

So yes it is "Hump Day" and I cannot wait for church tonight. I'm thrilled that I can go to a place and worship the Lord freely and have liberty in worship. The scripture gives reference to a complete freedom, "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." (John 8:36 KJV). In this scripture we can see that we CAN have freedom in worshiping the Lord.

A lot of people think of Wednesday night services to be outdated, and old-fashioned, well it may be old-fashioned, but it is NOT outdated. In fact you actually find your core congregation on Wednesday nights. One of our members told me something a while back and I want to share it with you.

"If you go to church on Sunday Morning, you love the preacher. If you go to church on Sunday Night, you love the Church. But, if you go to church on Wednesday Night, you love the Lord."

I find it very refreshing to stop the pace of my busy life and go to church in the middle of the week.

There used to be a time when I had time to go to revivals all week long, but that time is not available now, with my own family we may get to go to one or two services for revival out of a full week. Of course when our church has revival I'm there all week, but we have to prepare for that time.

So, YES, I love Wednesday night services! I love them. I recently ready and I've heard this for years, but a Mid-Week service is like pulling into a gas station half empty (or half full) and getting a top off. It helps you make it the rest of the week. Not that you are carnel and sinfull all week, but the fact is that, the world will take a toll on the Christian if there is no refueling during the week.

Check back soon for another message from Cedar Bluff.

New Sermon

Have you ever wanted to "Be Your Own Boss"? Well in this message you'll find out if you can or not.

If there has ever been a time when we must fight against compromise it IS now. Please settle back and hold on and listen about "The Cost of Compromise"

Update

Good morning all! I trust everyone had a great Mother’s Day, I believe my mother, and wife did.

 

Honestly the last few weeks at church have been very difficult to preach. Bother Morning services seemed hindered in a way that I have yet to be able to explain. Last Sunday I preached on “God’s Love” from Hosea Chapters 1-3, by Monday night I knew that at least 2 people had been touched by the message.

Sunday night, the “Big Preacher” showed up. Of course I’m talking about God, He began to bless hearts with testimonies, and songs.

 

This Sunday being Mother’s day, I tried to preach on mother’s but God would not allow it, instead He lead me to preach from the book of Ezra about, “Risking all on God” basically giving everything to the Lord in spite of our problems and diverse situations.

Sunday night I preached from Mark 11 on “God has a need”

      I.        For Available Men

     II.        For Adventurous Men

    III.        For Adoring Men

I trust that the Lord will move on the hearts of His people and stir them to revival soon. If you’re reading this blog, there must be a desire to see what God is doing, doubtless, He IS doing something, He IS working in our midst, but the thing I struggle with the most, is His timing. What I want NOW, He desires to wait, let it mature, progress if you will. He IS working in our midst, slowly, but mightily. Please pray for our church, pray for our people.

Cry out and Live

A dear lady in our church wrote this and shared it with me. She has given me permission to share it with you. Please read and enjoy.

******************************************************

 

Cry Out and Live!

Vicki London 5-4-09

 

It is not often enough that I am overwhelmed with urgency for Jesus to devour me searching every part of me… my heart, my mind, me steps, my speech, and oh yes the very motives for the things I’ve done, I’m doing, and I’m going to do.  This morning driving into work was clearly one of those precious moments of being overwhelmed with desire and desperation for Jesus to breathe His life in me TODAY!

 

As I listened to a song I’ve heard many, many times, I was hit with realization I am lost without HIM. I am forever eternally saved through faith Jesus Christ, but today without Jesus I am lost and can’t find my way nor walk with Him if I don’t have HIS breathe (Holy Spirit) living in me or His word spoken to me today! He is the air I breathe… He is my daily bread.

 

You know none of us are exempt from times of failing to exemplifying Jesus’ love to our world, for many time we do/will disappoint others, speak hurtful words, judge un-righteously, hold anger in our hearts because “things/decisions” weren’t like we thought they ought to be. Many times it’s those “things”; well should I say “sins”, in our very own hearts that keeps us separated from God and the outpouring of His Holy Spirit.

 

Today I realize afresh and anew how desperate I am for HIM (JESUS) and I how lost I am without HIM, for His breath in me, and for His Holy presence living in me. For you see He is my daily bread through His Holy word Spoken to me and when I open His word up He will speak.

John 6:32 – 37, 51 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. 37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Cry out and live!

 

Are you desperate for HIM? Are you lost without Jesus living and moving in your life? Let Him know, and know that all the “stuff” we carry around means nothing without Him. so Today be desperate enough for HIM to let it all go and turn you eyes upward as the old songs says

 

            Turn you eyes upon Jesus,

look full in His wonderful face

and the things of earth will grow strangely dime

 in the light of His Glory and Grace

 

TODAY Lord Jesus I cry out to you for I know I am lost without you … you are the breath I breathe and YOU are my daily bread. I am desperate for you today, tomorrow and for the rest of my life… YOU ARE MY LIFE!

Breathe by: Michael W. Smith

 

This is the air I breathe
This is the air I breathe
Your holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread
This is my daily bread
Your very word spoken to me

And I I'm desperate for you
And I I'm I'm lost without you

I'm lost without you. I'm lost without you. I'm desperate for you.

 

Love & Prayers

Vicki
