Blessings Family,

PERSECUTION !   How many of us 'truly' know what it means to be persecuted for your Faith
                                 In the Good News of Jesus Christ. How many of us 'truly' know the VERY
                                 Deep sacrifice required my so many of  God's children?

How many of us are CONVICTED, that by standing 'firmly' in the Love of Christ,
we can rest assured that He IS our sufficiency ?

Although " A DAY LATE, and a DOLLAR SHORT ' ,..... sorry! , Here is the second of  Two promised ' Shared Testimony ' videos from our informative brothers and sisters in Yeshua,Jesus

at 'One for Israel'. With heartfelt prayer this will touch your heart with the wisdom necessary to 

Grow the Remnant

needed for the return of our Messiah and His  fulfillment of scripturally foretold and God Promised manifestations, orchestrated by the Hand of God, at the pleasure of and by the Grace of

Our Loving Fathers Divine Plan. Of which He has known the end from the beginning.

Amen!

That's ' OUR ' Messiah !

Shalom Brothers and Sisters !


WoW !  Truly, what a Beautiful Sun Filled Saturday our Lord has given us. Let's rejoice!, via a quick SHARING of witnessing the loving and versatile ways HE works within His kingdom.

As you are well aware, Maine's Messianic believing Synagogue ( KEHILA HOUSE ), and specifically Rabbi Stephen Luft has impressed a strong and ' clearer ' understanding of the 
Book of Romans as it pertains to the Gentile role in God's Divine Plan to " Grow the Remnant ".


( We are currently in Prayer and Planning mode with many partners regarding  a potentially significant Kingdom Outreach event with Rabbi Stephen, that we fervently pray will affect positive growth of ' the remnant ',
and in effort of paving the way for the return of Yeshua/ Christ,Jesus ! )

Having now perhaps 'baited' you into curiosity, I will leave you to God's patience while we continue appropriate planning and prayer.

Meanwhile, allow me to share, a ' Witnessing ' of God's Divine Plan which appears to entail measures causative of a clearer view through FishScales falling from the eyes of many of His very 'loved' children.

Our endeared Sister in Christ ( Marilyn ) indeed ' Edified ' me in Christ when she succinctly termed the ' Co- Incidence ' labeled events of a sermon as GOD-INCIDENCES !. And we Thank You profusely dear Marilyn.  We have indeed found that sharing our God-Incidences is a convincing way of  ' Sharing the Good News ' to what is often a pool of lost sheep in dire need
changing their ' doubtful thomas ' perception of our Triune God.

In closing, please enjoy the following short video ( which will be followed by a must - see connection video I will post tomorrow !...... )

For now, we pray that our humble attempt to share the Truth of God the Father, will in any small way enrich your personal journey in The Lord. Enjoy the video, and Please check back tomorrow for it's successor video which will surely add even more of Christ's Light , .. to the darkness of this world, and to show what we need is indeed TRUTH. The Truth of God, The Truth of Yeshua/Jesus,
and Truth of the Great Gift of His Indwelling Holy Spirit !

ON a SIDE NOTE :   Feel very free to join me tomorrow Feb. 5th at 10 AM,  at FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH of KITTERY POINT, MAINE ( 542 Haley Rd ), as I've been 'honored and blessed' with the invitation to deliver Sunday's Service. The God inspired message of the day will be " HANDING DOWN  OUR CHRISTIAN FAITH ! "

May God Bless You Heartily, ......................... enjoy the video!

To First Christian Church, and God's Greater Church !

We would like to both Announce and Invite any and all interested individuals to Join us Sunday January 29th at 10 AM, as we enter a new chapter of our Church's long and historical blessing here on the beautiful Southern Maine Seacoast.
Please Join Us
As we Celebrate with
" AN INSTALLATION of INSPIRATION "
FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH of KITTERY POINT, MAINE
542 Haley Rd. Kittery Point, ME 03905

Please join us as we formally Install the well known and inspirational Reverend Dr. Wilbert D. Gough as our newly appointed ' PASTOR EMERITUS ' immediately following what thousands have come to consider 'one of his Treasure Trove of sermons.' ( many of the lives touched by pastor G., consider his Sermons worthy of their ' Bucket List ' as it may pertain to their walks with Christ ) ( Additionally, our Ministries favorite TENOR, and admirer of Pastor Gough will bless us with his Holy Spirit gift of Song within this day and sermon of Praise of Servants and Master ).
At the young age of 98 years, Rev. Gough has been an invaluable Teacher and Mentor to thousands of Christian followers, as well as Church Leaders who have sought formal Ministry training such as myself and many more!
Pastor Gough is a published author, having written the most excellent book entitled " Life Isn't Fair- But God Is ". The book is a wonderful compilation of select sermons drawn from Pastor's 70 years in the Pulpit.
Pastor has a Dual Doctorate from Eastern Baptist Seminary, as well as graduate degrees from Temple University School of Theology, and Burton Theological Seminary.
In addition to many high level Christian Leadership Conferences with the likes of Billy Graham, Zola Levitt and many others, He has served as Pastor at the following area churches:  FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH of KITTERY POINT,  FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH of HAMPTON, FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH of Kittery,  FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH of BRENTWOOD,  TRINITY UNITED CHURCH of SEABROOK,
and YORK STREET BAPTIST CHURCH. Pastor Gough also blesses STEP WITH CHRIST MINISTRIES (an inter-church fellowship ministry) within a scriptural advisory role.
Dr. Gough has also been what we consider a Godly Ambassador to the Patriarchal role of 'Handing down the Faith'. ........ Pastor's son Donald followed in Dad's footsteps and also attended Eastern Baptist Seminary, where he faithfully served on it's Board of Directors for 25 years, ( 10 years as it's Chairman ), and, Pastor's Daughter Diane Fowler and Daughter In-Law Susan Gough are ALSO
seminary graduates ! ,........ ( feel free to attend my topic related guest sermon at First Christian Church next Sunday, Feb. 5th at 10 AM, where the message will be centered on ' Handing Down Our Faith with Family Fervor ' )

Additionally, First Christian Church will also honor long time member MR. MALCOLM E. FOSS, as we Install him as  DEACON EMERITUS.  Malcolm, a highly decorated World War II Veteran, ( currently actively serving FCC at the young age of 99 years, Malcolm has served the Church since moving to Kittery at age 12 !,....Yes,..... 87 Years of Service.) Mr. Malcolm Foss married long time F.C.C. member Ms. Marjorie Lewis at F.C.C. in 1945, and has served the Church in virtually every leadership role, inclusive of Sr. Deacon, Sr. Trustee, and when needed,.............. ' anything in the 'small' print '. Mr. Foss has been a personal inspiration to my own desire to serve, and has imparted his Godly wisdom to several of our Churches generational leaders and Christ Centered FAMILIES. ( A True Patriarch ! )
So, in closing, please feel free to join us as we celebrate over 150 Years of Service and Wisdom, Sunday, January,29th at 10 A.M.  for Sunday Services led by Pastor Gough.

Please Join us as we welcome Messianic Rabbi, Stephen Luft !

Shalom Brethren!

 Some of us believers are blessed indeed by actually visiting The Holy Land. Some of us like our ministry's endeared Rev. Dr. Wilbert D. Gough, have had the opportunity to experience an exposure to the Jewish mind-set, which I'm confident is the mind-set of our Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ ( Yeshua ha Mashiach ) !

Although late notice, we would like to welcome you to join us yet again at FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH of KITTERY POINT, Maine this Sunday, December 11th at 10:00 AM, when we will be Blessed by Messianic Rabbi Stephen Luft, of MAINE'S FIRST and ONLY  MESSIANIC SYNAGOGUE .... KEHILA HOUSE. Rabbi Stephen ( my graceful and guiding seminary lesson tutor and Brother ) has graciously agreed to present us with a Sunday Sermon that we fully believe will be pleasing to Our Father God, Adonai, as both  MESSIANIC ' believing Jew and Christian will be " Praying,Worshiping, and having Fellowship "Together" in HIS Holy Name ".

What a Rare Opportunity to Share Worship, to Edify one another in Christ, to His Glory!
WE PRAY YOU MIGHT JOIN US for This RARE BLESSING of Fellowship within the Body of Christ.
Feel free to peruse the Kehila House site link above. Additionally, and in technologically challenging for a knucklehead like me, the following is a YouTube link attempt to a video presented by Messianic Rabbi Schneider of " Discovering The Jewish Jesus Ministries ", whom I have followed since the inception of my continued Messianic and Jewish seminary studies.
I found this video to be a very good introduction into Scriptural Covenants, and God's intended interaction between Jew and Gentile as we TOGETHER, 'Grow the Remnant', as prophesied
to prepare One New Man to the satisfaction of God (Adonai), and  necessary for Our Saviors RETURN !
                                 GOD BLESS YOU, and HOPE to SEE YOU THERE !
