Luke 2:8 – 16.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

Church of Christ with the Elijah Message
November 5 at 2:58pm ·

Wherefore as the Holy Ghost saith, To-day if ye will hear His voice, Harden not your hearts, as in provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, they do always err in their hearts; and they have not known my ways. So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest. Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. Heb.3:7-12.
Those that have ears to hear let them hear.
May the foot steps that we leave, leads them to believe and the writtigs inspire them to obey. Blessings in Christ.

The Lord is great let us praise Him this day.

Brother Norman and myself are in India at this time. We have been here since the 4th of June. We arrived in New Delhi where we were welcomed by our Brother Jai Singh. We worked with him in the Delhi area for four days and then he took us central India. First stop was Bhapal India. There we taught for three days the doctrine of Christ and what God is doing today in Preparing a people for Christ return to clam His Bride the Church. The Lord was with us by His spirit. We left there and went to Baihar Balaghat here we met with nine different Pastors and their members Here again we presented the doctrine of Christ and His Church. From the word of God, we showed them what God said that He would do to prepare a people and restore His Church before Christ return to clam His Bride the Church. Eight Ministers excepted and was Baptized along with many of their members. We praise our Lord, because we know that it was Him that did it. He touch hearts by His Spirit. We have much work to do for the Lord.

We are now back in New Delhi working with the people. Brother Jai Singh is taking us to many areas to speak to the people. The Lord is blessing. We will leave New Delhi on the 1st of July for Channal and Sivaganghi were we will spend three weeks with the Saints in those areas. Please keep a prayer for the work of the Lord.

Brother Larry.

Psalms 107:6

Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

Let us remember that the Lord hears our prayers. He will deliver us from our distress. He might not deliver us the way we would think or like, but he will deliver us.

Matthew 9:37-38

Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

The harvest has begun. The Church is growing all over the world. There are two questions though. One, will you join the rest who have seen the truth? Two, will you help gather the rest that will come in by the door?

Wednesday:

Morning service:

Word study: We started the study with Hebrews 11. Faith is a fundamentally part of belief in Christ. Faith allows us to step out on God’s word. This allows us to walk closer to God strengthens our belief and faith. It is time for us all to grow, both as a church and as people. We each have a job to do for Christ. We have to help each other reach other people. We have to be supportive of our brothers and sisters as we do our own jobs for Christ. Christ gives us the authority to do his work.

Wednesday Afternoon:

The first person to teach this afternoon was Norris Purifoy. There is only one Lord, one faith, and one baptism. The sprit allows us to have that close communication with God. It is the one the looks after on our journey. We must not run ahead of the plan of God. It is important to have the close communication with God though his sprit and prayer. God has given us a job, but he also gives us instructions. John is coming back to give us the fullness of the gospel so that we can take it to the nations of this earth. It is responsibility to take the gospel to the people and build the temple. The closer we are to God, the more that Satan pulls at us. It is a struggle that we will have to the rest of our lives.

The second person to teach this afternoon is Darren Bellamy. God does not give us anything that we cannot handle. These trials and tribulations that we have to go through in our daily life are to test us to see how we are going to react.  We have to be thankful for these trials because they strengthen us and make us closer to God. We need to clean ourselves of our sins. We have to prepare ourselves and our hearts before we ask God to forgive us. We have to be sincere in our request and want to change. We need let God judge those that do us harm, and not hold the grudge or retaliate. We need to love everyone, no matter what they do to us. God always makes sure that justice is served. It might not happen during this life, but it will be happen. God is in controle.

Tuesday:

Tuesday Morning:

Larry Gosier led the congregation in praise and worship service. We sang songs, talked about how God was in our lives, and just how great God is.

After the praise and worship service Larry lead a word study on the 108th message. Christ is above all else. We cannot raise others up to the same level as Christ. John is just a servant of God performing his duty. We must keep Christ in our focus. We cannot add our own thought in ideas into Christ’s teachings. We must follow his truth and not get caught up in our own traditions.

References: Message 108

Tuesday Afternoon.

The first presenter this afternoon was William Holden. The Lord has directed us to take the message to all of mankind. The Lord uses many tools to bring all Christendom to come to his truth. The church has been established by God according to his plan. We must fall away from the traditions of men and must follow Christ’s instructions.  Satan is trying convince people to not follow the plan of God. All throughout history you can how people have fallen away from God.

The second speaker is Phil Meihls. Phil talked about the truth is found in the three books, the Bible, the Record of the Nephites, and the Word of the Lord. We have to be watchful of the devil. He is always out there trying to pull us away from God. We must take the time to study and praying to the Lord to stay with him and not fall away from the truth. We must search out and then teach the fullness of the gospel. Our carnal nature always pulls us away from God. We have to fight to stay with God.

References: Message 25:11-15, Message 39:14-17, 1st Peter 4:17-19, 1st Peter 5:1-7

Tuesday Evening

Terry Laws preached this evening. Christ is the Lord, he is God, he is the one, and he is the beginning and the end. Christ is cleansing this world and his church. Today is the day that we need to choose who we serve, God or man. We have to have action in our lives for God. We need to keep our focus on God, not the world. We must stand on the truth and with God. The devil is working very hard trying to pull us away from God. God allows this temptation to occur to allow us choose who we will serve. Christ love is a love that is greater than we can understand. It will always be there to comfort us and to lead us. We must take that love and then share it with the world with his gospel.

Here is a recap from yesterday’s Assembly.

 

Monday Morning Word study

Edward Coffey lead the word study this morning. We studied the 79th message.  We discussed who John the Baptist is and why he was put on this earth. John is a fellow servant of Christ with us. He was sent to help us prepare for the second coming of Christ and to prepare the way before him. God has a plan for the second coming and the signs of it are here for us to see. The questions is will we be able to see it before it is too late. We must pray to God for him to lead us in these end times. We must humble ourselves before our Lord. We do not know when Christ will return, but we have to prepare ourselves for that moment. We will be judged on what actions we do in our life and what we do with Christ’s words and instructions. Christ’s sprit will guide us, but that sprit will always match the written word of God. It is our responsibility to follow that sprit and word. We have to take Gods word to the people and let them chose what to do with it.

Monday Afternoon

Chris Laws spoke this afternoon. To follow Christ we must follow his plan and commandments. We must become humble, meek, submissive, patient, full of love and all longsuffering in the eyes of the Lord. We must go out and teach repentance of sins and faith in Christ. This is what will save people. We must go out and do this work with Christ’s love in our heart. We can only love one thing, God or man. To follow Christ we only have to do two things, Love him with our whole heart, soul, and body and to love others like ourselves. If we do these two things, we will accomplish everything else that Christ wants us to do. We must take this gospel to everyone, not just the people like us. All need the opportunity to find and follow God. Only Christ’s love will give us the strength to stay on the straight and narrow path. We must love our fellow workers and strive to hold onto the Christ’s truth.

Monday Evening

Ronny Beck spoke during the evening service. We are each called to serve God in our own way. We have to listen to his plan for us. We have to stay humble though. When we work for God we will become naked before the Lord. Everything is in God’s will. He will not go away when times are tough. We must follow God and not add our own ideas into the plan of God. God wants us to keep working in the work. We need him at times to help us through, but this is Christ’s work and it is powerful. Christ does not divide himself. There is only one truth. There is only one way to join the Church and only one authority of Christ.

References: Matthew 22:1-14, Genesis 3:8, Message 111:1-5, Malachi 2:1-4, Message 110:4-15, Message 112:5

Here is a recap of Day One of the Assembly. If you have time today please join us at 9:00, 2:00, 7:00 for services here.

Sunday Morning:

Opening: Larry Gosier opened the service with songs Blessed Assurance and The Church’s One Foundation. After the songs Larry talked a short time about how Jesus is the Christ. Jesus is God, but people did not believe him because he was one of the people. We have to keep searching and growing in the Lord if we want to stay with Him. People today find Christ and then stop learning about him. This action causes these people to be left behind from Christ and his full gospel. This all sounds simple and easy, but human nature makes it difficult to put into actions. We need to stay persistent allow God to help us on our journey. We have Sacraments that we remember Christ and have him enter our hearts.

We had a Season of Prayer so that each person could prepare themselves for the Sacraments. After Sacraments we had a session of testimony to allow people to share how God has blessed each one of us.

References: John 6:42-58

Sunday Afternoon:

Terry Laws spoke in the afternoon service. God has a plan for us and or the world at large. Ever since God created humans there has been a plan in place for us to have salvation and for the second coming of Christ. We have to follow the plan that God has given us. We cannot make our own plan or do it on our own time line.  We must have faith in the plan that God has laid out. We must each do our own part that he has given us. No matter what our individual role might be, we each have to proclaim the gospel to the people. The number one thing to do in the plan of God is to preach the truth to the world. If we do this well, the rest of the plan will fall into place. We have to each stay the course with our walk with God. There are many outside forces that will try to pull each one of us away from the truth. God gives us trials and tribulation to test us and see how we will respond. Each trial that we have to go through has a purpose behind it. Each one of us has a part in the plan of God. In order for his plan to work as desired we must do our part. If we do not do our part it affects every other person. God has given us his plan in his written word. This can be found in the three books: The Bible, The Word of the Lord, and The Record of the Nephites.

Sunday Night:

Larry Gosier spoke this evening. We have to know God and strive to stay with him. Strait is the path that leads to salvation. We have to stay focused on the prize. It only takes one step the wrong direction on the strait path to be off of it. Christ gospel is the same. It only takes one little thing to make what you say not agree with God. We need to keep grounded in Christ. There will be times when we are working for the Lord that the Devil will try to pull us away from the truth. We must stay firm to the teaching of Christ and not allow us to be caught up with the ideas of the world. We must follow the teachings of Christ. We cannot take what Christ said and then add our own flavor to it and expect Christ to accept it.

References: Matthew Chapter 7, Message 32:3

Message 50:13

Storms and earthquakes shall come and the nations must know the Lord is God.

There will be a time that people will know that God is in charge. In the last few years the number a dramatic natural disasters around the world have escalated. If you believe man, it is our doing, but God told us that he would cause these things to happen as a warning to all people. Let us heed the warning and follow his commandments and the teachings of Christ.

2 Timothy 3:1-7

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

There will be so much evil in the world that it will be hard to find the good in the world. We are at that place today. Evil is around us everywhere. We must find the truth in the word. We cannot use our friends, our traditions, or our wants to decide what is right. We must only use the word of God.

Message 73:1-4

“Write the message I will give you. Take heed the words I speak, for I speak the Lord’s words and will. The Lord your God has sent me in the past and I will yet come in the future. I come now with a message. I am the Messenger of the Lord, the forerunner of the Christ that will come for his own. All those that love his appearing shall find rest and peace with him. I am John the Baptist, the Elias, which was for to come. I come at the Lord’s appointing. I am the Branch; he that shall prune, refine and purify all that may dwell in the presence of the Lord and King of kings. I bring peace like a river and the flowing stream of joy and life to all that heed and obey. I come that the plan might be fulfilled and great peace established.

Here the messenger does a great job of telling us what his mission is and where he comes from. John is here to tell us the words of God. These are words of encouragement and instruction. They tell us what we need to do and give us the assurance to do it. Let us follow these instructions and apply them to our daily lives.

Mormom 9:1-4

And now, I speak also concerning those who do not believe in Christ. Behold, will ye believe in the day of your visitation—behold, when the Lord shall come, yea, even that great day when the earth shall be rolled together as a scroll, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, yea, in that great day when ye shall be brought to stand before the Lamb of God—then will ye say that there is no God? Then will ye longer deny the Christ, or can ye behold the Lamb of God? Do ye suppose that ye shall dwell with him under a consciousness of your guilt? Do ye suppose that ye could be happy to dwell with that holy Being, when your souls are racked with a consciousness of your guilt that ye have ever abused his laws? Behold, I say unto you that ye would be more miserable to dwell with a holy and just God, under a consciousness of your filthiness before him, than ye would to dwell with the damned souls in hell.

At point will you believe? If you are questioning the truthfulness of the word, know that you will know at some point. It is better to learn about it now when you have a chance to change your life than latter when you meet Christ on judgment day.
