>> * 2010 THE YEAR OF THE CHURCH

PAUSE AND MEDITATE ON GOD'S WORD TODAY - HIS HELP FROM ABOVE:

1 Corinthians 1:18 [AMPL](English) - For the story and message of the cross is sheer absurdity and folly to those who are perishing and on their way to perdition, but to us who are being saved it is the [manifestation of] the power of God.

* 1 Corintios 1:18 (Reina-Valera 1960)(Spanish) - Porque la palabra de la cruz es locura a los que se pierden; pero a los que se salvan, esto es, a nosotros, es poder de Dios. * 1 Corintios 1:18 O Livro (c) 2000 by International Bible Society (Portugal/Brazil) - Eu sei bem como parece uma loucura, para os que estio perdidos, dizer que Jesus morreu na cruz para os salvar. Mas, para nos que estamos salvos, isso a expresso do poder de Deus. * 1 Corinzi 1:18 La Parola Vita (c) 1997 by International Bible Society (Italian) - Sembra sciocco a quelli sulla via della perdizione sentir predicare che Ges morto sulla croce per salvarli, ma per noi che siamo sulla via della salvezza questo messaggio la potenza di Dio. * 1 Corinthiens 1:18 La Bible du Semeur (c) 1999 by International Bible Society (French) - En effet, la prodication de la mort du Christ sur une croix est une folie aux yeux de ceux qui se perdent. Mais pour nous qui sommes *sauvis, elle est la puissance meme de Dieu.


Greetings, thank you for visiting us today! * CELEBRATE JESUS! MINISTRIES FELLOWSHIP MISSION: "To declare to everyone everywhere that the kingdom of God is here among you today! JESUS IS LORD! - JESUS SAVES, FOLLOW HIM!"

* CELEBRATE JESUS! MINISTRIES FELLOWSHIP PURPOSE: * To teach, preach, learn and study 'Basic Bible Truths' New Testament principles to develop mature Christians that will be able ministers of God's Salvation; and Life to every born-again Christian to be a witness of His forgiveness & available salvation through Jesus finished work at the Cross of Calvary. * To encourage those God call to service to Jesus Body, the Church, in 5-fold ministry - some Apostles, some Prophets, some pastors and teachers, evangelists, while others are called to administration & organization, ministry of help & such as He appoints them from time to time as He wills.

To help us in our walk to be effective as Christians in our own daily living and ministry to others we must first be "more than conquerors" in the battlefield of our own minds. * Prov. 23:7 reads: "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he." * As we read the Bible we can see examples of godly men and women of God that sin because first they entertained a thought... All sin is first born in our mind through our thoughts, so we must have control over our mind and thoughts to live a life pleasing to God. Therefore, because of all that above - the Lord is giving an open door of ministry from His place to start in Lockport, NY to CELEBRATE JESUS! MINISTRIES FELLOWSHIP as the focus to reach out to souls in the Niagara Frontier, New York (USA) to start in 2010 a teaching and learning outreach as ZOE - 'Basic Bible Truths' School of the Bible, with fundamental series starting with Joyce Meyer's in-depth "The Battlefield of the Mind" because no matter how much we love Jesus and pursue to obey all commandments Jesus gave us as recorded in the Gospels, we will not be successful in having a Christian life until we get control of our thought life and the words that we speak daily as Jesus tells in the Gospels that sin starts in the mind, with a thought.


Greetings, At all times Christians should pause and be reflecting in the blessings the Lord had given us during the years - also to look forward to His blessings for present times. Here is a very thoughtful devotional from Dr. Larry Ollison that we all should prayerfully consider:

2010 "The Year of the Church" by Dr. Larry Ollison

A few weeks ago while spending time with the Lord, I had this question on my heart. "What are Your plans for me & for my ministry?" From deep within my spirit I heard these words. "This coming year will be the year of the church." My first question was this. "What does it mean that 2009 will be the year of the church?" The church was here this year & last year. In fact, the church has been on the Earth every year since the time Jesus put His blood on the Mercy Seat. When Jesus became the first fruits into the Kingdom & became the firstborn among many brethren, the church was established. Jesus then took His position as the head of the church & all who received Him became a part of His body. The church has existed for centuries, so what does it mean "2010 is the year of the church?" Over the last few weeks I have meditated on this & God has spoken clearly to my heart. As for me & those who attend my church & receive from this ministry, 2009 is the year for every member of the church {His Body} to stand up & be the church. The time that once was future is now here. We are truly living in the last moments of the last days. We are the generation that will usher in the return of the Messiah. The waiting is over & the time is at hand for the church to stand up & operate in the power and authority that was prophesied by Jesus.

* 2010 is the Year for the Church to Stand Up and Be the Church: It is time for the church to quit being "seeker friendly" & become "Holy Spirit friendly." When the world looks at Christians, they should see the light shining in such a way that they are drawn to a loving God instead of being drawn to God's stuff. While it is true that God wants to prosper every believer physically & financially, the gift should not receive more glory than the giver. Jesus told us that Christians were to be fishers of men, but a BMW or a Mercedes should not be the bait on the hook. Now don't take me wrong. There is nothing wrong with owning a BMW or a Mercedes. Personally, a silver BMW Z-4 is a beautiful car & there is nothing wrong with having one. If you see one in the Pastor's parking spot at church, it's okay. God doesn't mind. However, the motivation of Jesus being pierced with nails & dying on the cross was not so you could have a new BMW & it shouldn't be your motivation for spreading the gospel either. We should attract people to a loving God in such a way that they will love Him more than His stuff. Many people in the local church they attend are hurting, offended, & bitter. I heard a man say last week that life had been bad to him. While it may be true that the world has treated him poorly, God is a good God & His plan is full of goodness. It's time for the church to get over bitterness, discouragement, depression, & fear of people. This is the year the church must take a stand & proclaim the Word to the world with strength & authority. Psalm 119:165 says, "Great peace have they which love Thy law & nothing shall offend them." The church must quit talking about what the world has done to them & start talking about what God has done for them. This is the time, this is the year for the church to stand up & be the church. While in Old Jerusalem, a storekeeper told me that Christians often leave tracts in his store hoping that he will find them & receive Jesus. He made an interesting statement to me. He said, "Instead of Christians leaving a tract, they should become a living tract, and then being a Christian would be attractive." It's time for Christians to quit talking about what they are in the world & be who they are to the world.

* 2010 is the Year the Church Walks in Correction: As a pastor, I have discovered that people enjoy coming to me for advice & they accept it as long as the answer is what they want to hear. We must develop the ministry of receiving the word "no" To hear quickly, & to be obedient without question makes one usable to God. Over the years I've had many approach me about their call into the ministry. There are those who truly will do whatever God calls them to do, but there are also many who will only answer the call if it involves a platform, podium, microphone, & cameras. There is nothing wrong with being famous. The Bible says that Jesus fame spread throughout the country & multitudes came to hear him. Jesus didn't seek fame, but used it as a tool. Likewise, fame should never be a ministry goal. In order for the church to be the church, Christians must be obedient to every word & not just to the ones they want to receive. We must go where He tells us to go, or stay where He tells us to stay without regard to fame or fortune. The Blessing will chase you down & catch you, but The Blessing only travels on the street named Obedience. God's Word may be served on a table, but it's not a smorgasbord. There are desserts, but you must also eat the vegetables. My wife, Loretta, is devoted to prayer. Privately she spends time in prayer, but also hosts several prayer sessions each week. I recently heard someone say that they were not going to prayer because they didn't get a lot out of prayer meetings. It reminded me of the time that a couple met me in my office to inform me that they were no longer going to work with children because no one appreciated what they were doing. When did appreciation become the motivation for ministry? When did we start judging prayer by how much we got out of it? Much of the focus has been wrong and needs to be corrected. We were created to worship Him. When we pray, we pray to the Father. If talking to the Father does not bring satisfaction, then an adjustment needs to be made & it's not the Father that needs to be adjusted. 2009 is the year the church walks in correction.

* 2010 is the Year the Church Must Obey Without Hesitation: The church has been commanded to "go ye therefore and make disciples." Whether or not you feel appreciated while doing it, is irrelevant. It's a command. Imagine how an army would function during a time of war if each soldier decided himself whether or not he

was going to obey the commands of the General on the basis of how appreciated he felt. The war would be lost. That is one of the basic problems that has develop. If everybody is sitting at the table and nobody is in the kitchen, everyone starves. In order to eat, we must all take our turn in the kitchen. While in the heart of God, it is true that it is all about us, in our hearts we should have the attitude that it is all about Him. The church must have the right perspective and have its priorities in order. Although we receive when we come to God house, our hearts should be the heart of a servant and we should come to give worship to God and minister to others. Many churches are looking for revival within their own building. They have become frustrated over the years trying to obtain it because the real heart of revival is ministering to someone else. The church should overflow into the world instead of attempting to overflow back onto itself over and over. True satisfaction and accomplishment in the heart of a believer is when they see the Word flowing out of themselves and into the lives of hurting people and seeing those hurting lives becoming fruitful and abundant in all things.

* 2010 is the Year the Church Must Cleanse Itself of the World: 2010 is the year for the church to stand in honesty, character, & integrity. In today's society, I have seen a disturbing trend. People are accustomed to being tantalized, mesmerized, & sensationalized & this has been brought into the church. While I truly believe that worship services should promote excellence in music & teaching & that musicians should practice & rehearse in order to promote excellence in worship, I have noticed that some church services are such choreographed, theatrical, made-for-television performances, that there is little difference between church & the half-time show at the Super Bowl (without the fireworks). A minister recently indicated to me that he was unable to allow the gifts of the Holy Spirit to operate in his church service because there was no way that it would fit into his television programming. It's sad when we allow directors to eliminate the move of the Spirit from our worship services. It's robbing God of His opportunity to speak intimately with His children. This is the year the church must cleanse itself of the world & worship the Father in spirit & in truth. When I told a minister at a ministers conference that I had sold my airplane, he said, "But what about your image? Don't you know that not having an airplane will affect the image of your ministry?" We must get over this crazy thinking & realize that ministry is not about the building of our image.

* 2010 is the Year for the Sleeping Giant to Awake: Sometimes I feel like the church has been lulled into a deep sleep. Twenty years ago there were things we would not allow in our homes that today we are using to babysit our children. But this is the year for the sleeping giant to awake. It has been estimated that there are over 75 million evangelical Christians in America alone. If we could unite as one body in agreement with the Word of God as our guide, nothing could stop us. While the world may wax worse & become more deceived, the church should become brighter and brighter until we shine the Gospel into all the world.

* 2010 is the Time for the Church to Be All That Jesus Prophesied it Would Be: There is so much more that God is speaking in these last moments of the last days. When my grandmother was a teenager, she saw her first automobile. During all of her youth she traveled by way of horse & wagon. Before she passed away, she saw astronauts go into outer space & men walk on the moon. From the creation of man through 6,000 years, man traveled with the assistance of animals. In one generation that changed. The scriptures tell us that in the last days knowledge will increase. We are truly in the last days. The prophetic times spoken by our Lord & Savior, Jesus, are upon us. The time of waiting is behind & the time of action is at hand. It's time for the church to stand up & be all that Jesus prophesied the church would be.

CELEBRATE JESUS! MINISTRIES FELLOWSHIP PREACHING KORNER: "GOD DOES NOT CONTRADICT HIMSELF"

There are many Basic Bible Truths principles that are misinterpreted when it is not learn in perspective & balance such as 'Eternal Salvation' as some teach that 'Once saved, always saved' and we need to study the 2-sides of the truth... John 3:16 & John 15:4-6; Eph. 1:13-14 & Heb 6:5-6, Rom. 11:17-24 - Bible study must be developed to a healthy prayerful daily habit for the Lord to guide us through His Holy Spirit into all truth. Amen.


PAUSE AND MEDITATE ON GOD'S WORD TODAY - HIS HELP FROM ABOVE: * "I am the LORD, the God of all mankind.

* I declare to you all that the kingdom of God is here among you today! JESUS IS LORD! Amen! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!


Every Christian golden rule to apply to their lives and relationships with others: * 1 Corinthians 13 (NASB)- (c) 1995 The Lockman Foundation. - 1 Corinthians 13 - The Excellence of God's kind of Love: *** 1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part & we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
