Acts 27 Voyage to Rome Begins!
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 12 January 2018

Paul wanted to make sure the will of God was done in his life so bad he was not able to think like he should of, so the people who were in charge agreed to take him Rome, note what happens!
 Acts 27New King James Version (NKJV)
The Voyage to Rome Begins
27 And when it was decided that we should sail to Italy, they delivered Paul and some other prisoners to one named Julius, a centurion of the Augustan Regiment. So, entering a ship of Adramyttium, (a ship which bought African good tolthe area)  we put to sea, meaning to sail along the coasts of Asia.  Many time in life we are so determined to have our way we forget reality. They have now set sail for a long journey under the authority of Julius a centurion of Augustan Regiment or Band or legion where before he was under Cornelius a Italian Band. So now he us in the care of someone that was very human and they had Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, was with us. And the next day we landed at Sidon. And Julius treated Paul kindly and gave him liberty to go to his friends and receive care. It amazing how God takes care of His own and Paul was blessed as he was able to have freedom to come and go whenever he wanted for remember he wanted to meet with the head of the Roman Government so he was not going to want to escape. I don’t know how many times I heard of prisoners who wanted to escape. But not Paul he was an ambassador all the time. Here we see other prisoners with Paul and nothing is said rather they had the same treatment as Paul. Paul was singled out has being different and had freedom not afforded to many I am sure. Paul was surrounded by wicked men that gave him a reason to act and do what he was doing for he relied on God for his safety. When we had put to sea from there, we sailed under the shelter of Cyprus, because the winds were contrary. Are we not see the winds blowing like never before and causing fire to burn out of control causing billions of dollars of expense and the hurricanes cause untold agony around the world. So when winds come we have to face reality and face the vividness of destruction and that is what the captains of any ships have to do. And when we had sailed over the sea which is off Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myra, a city of Lycia. There the centurion found an Alexandrian ship sailing to Italy, and he put us on board.  Alexandria was the chief city of Egypt that carried corn to Rome according to history and other goods so there were many of ships. So Julian decided to change ships to make it safer.                                                           
When we had sailed slowly many days, and arrived with difficulty off Cnidus, the wind not permitting us to proceed, we sailed under the shelter of Crete off Salmone. Passing it with difficulty, we came to a place called Fair Havens, near the city of Lasea. What a place to be on the ocean during stormy weather, for it is slow going under such tempestuous conditions. They finally arrive at a place called fair Havens where they could escape the storms. Do we not need a fair haven today where there is peace, joy and Love abounding? Yet fair haven was not the ideal place to winter in, for it was still exposed to the weather. It was about the 20th of September when the yearly fast was observed, a time to afflict the soul with fasting for what was taking place within the land as they faced strong winds.
I think we are living in a time when we need to encourage people to fast that is denying one of eating to show we are totally committed to beseeching Gods control over what is going on. Here in our area we are alarmed by the amount of crime going on, that our laws can’t seem to make a difference to curtail, or stop; so we need to fast and pray for the safety of all our citizens that justice will be done. Then we need to pray and fast, for our youth to see the need to communicate with God so they can find peace and how to manage time spent on the Smartphone. It seems like the storms of life are destroying families and causing dysfunctionalism to where who cares? Then we see entertainment demanded to make us happy, when our happiness comes as we abide in the Lord and relax and let God do His work.  Isiah 58:6 Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen; to loose the chains of injustice and unite the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressor free and break every yoke? Then Joel 10: 15 Blow the trumpet in Zion declare a holy fast call a sacred assembly, gather the people consecrate the Assembly bring together the elders, gather the children, those nursing at the breast all weep before the Lord to spare your people and make Your inheritance on object of blessing not scorn. So I trust you, in your day will spend some time just fasting and praying for our community that the addictions of sin will be able to broken and people will be set free to worship, reverence, have hope and faith in God to answer our needs in prayer. 
Paul’s Warning Ignored
Now when much time had been spent, and sailing was now dangerous because the Fast was already over, Paul advised them, 10 saying, “Men, I perceive that this voyage will end with disaster and much loss, not only of the cargo and ship, but also our lives.” 11 Nevertheless the centurion was more persuaded by the helmsman and the owner of the ship than by the things spoken by Paul. 12 And because the harbor was not suitable to winter in, the majority advised to set sail from there also, if by any means they could reach Phoenix, a harbor of Crete opening toward the southwest and northwest, and winter there. The time for fasting was over and the stormy time was more violent and Paul was given a message by God to speak out and warn them, that the ship was going to meet with disaster and suffer much loss even our lives. Now here we are in this big world that seems to be headed for disaster as college students are not pay off their loans and some are suggesting we erase this indebtedness. Our Banks are finding people are not able to pay off their indebtedness and our Country can’t seem to pay on their indebtedness. So our Federal Reserve just prints more money and the cycle does not stop, How far can we go? Who knows how long it will be before our currency stops and we find the economy in the hands of the Anti Christ.  Then our Government is so out of order something has to happen, will it be a new world order? Yes, it is coming headed by China and Russian and the European nations. Then look at religion and how justice shown to God is not present, for we have accepted anything goes and that demands a religious head that can assure us all, it is going to be dealt with as the Anti Christ becomes the one who controls the Governments and the economics around the world. Are you seeing the storm clouds gather covering the whole earth? Paul saw what was ahead and warned them but it was not heard. Paul you’re not a sailor you do not know the power of navigation, your just in for a ride. Those know not what danger they run themselves into who will be governed more by human prudence than by divine revelation.  Lord help us to see that our imagination times vividness needs to equal reality that is godly not worldly.
In the Tempest
13 When the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their desire, putting out to sea, they sailed close by Crete. Here we see them feeling comfortable and feeling it was safe even though they knew the history of the area they stayed close to shore. 14 But not long after, a tempestuous head wind arose, called Euroclydon. This was like a whirlwind which meant trouble[a 15 So when the ship was caught, and could not head into the wind, we let her drive. Here we see the ship is helpless and caught up in the storm kind of like Johnna was caught up in when thrown in and caught up in the belly of the Whale when he was running away from God here Paul is not running away from God, but getting ready to see the hand of God do the impossible. 
I feel like society is being caught up in the most turbulent time of my life, as we do not know who to believe or trust, for we have the smart phone, that is causing people not to communicate in person to better ourselves, but on line spreading rumors and lies. This is causing right to be wrong and wrong to be right, and people losing identity and committing suicide, for we have nothing to live for of value. 

What do You want. me to do?

What does God want to do in me? This is a question I Need to answer for today, as we all need to do. As we abide in the Lord, we have God spirit living in us seeing the manifestations of His presence and glory that gives a resounding victory over our enemies. We do not have to be defeated. We can have an impact on our community when carnality and casualness is void, so we can clearly see the Almighty power of Gods. It is not our fame that is given men ability to defeat the enemy, it is the fame of the outstretched hands of the Lord, saying come unto me all you that are wear and heavy laden and I will give you rest. Let’s call people to repentance, confession and contrition, that the tide can begin to turn toward righteousness. Judgement must begin at the house of the Lord, so we can become more and more like the Lord. God wants us to reveal Himself to us and through us. Goodness and severity is a two edged sword of the Lords. If we do not judge ourselves we will be judged by the Lord.
1 Corinthians 11:31-32 New King James Version (NKJV)
31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world. Let make sure we want what is right for all, so Gods Holy Spirit is seen convicting people of wrong for the simple reason we have looked at ourselves and see we need God’s blessing of glory, so we are not condemned and ashamed. Then Romans 11:22 New King James Version (NKJV)
22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness,[a] if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. We are seeing the severity of sins consequences and it is not pretty, but to see the Christians enjoy life in marriage, business, recreation and sports is a joy to behold. May we as a Church reach out to our community with love not hate or disappointment, but yes you can live for Him as you let God have His way in your life.

Law-fullness not Lawlessness
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 29 December 2017

We are living in an area that has the State Patrol, County Sheriff’s Department, and Yakama Reservation Police, to make sure we as citizens are safe and secure at all times in our homes and highways. Should they not all be governed by equal rights for all, so we have lawfulness and not lawlessness as we are seeing too often in our valley. Should we not expect all law enforcement to be working together even the State Patrol on our Reservation.

We have two nations in one area that should be united in what is good for all, for one race is no better than the other and we are causing injustice to divide and prevent all lives matter. Lord helps those who call upon Him and we need to become united or we all fall!
I am so thankful that God has given us all the ability to be civil as we accept abiding in the vine: Jesus for without Jesus in our lives we will never have the peace of God or love that conquers the lusts of the flesh. We are not only seeing lawlessness in our Yakama Valley we are seeing it around the world for we have forgotten who created us, and for what reason, as we have not accepted His way, truth and life that produces fruits that are good for all.
The Bible says in Ephesians 2: 10 We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. God does not create junk we become junkies as we do our thing with no regard for others. Pride is normally wanting out way for it is in the middle of pride. 9:18 AMhis happens when we forget who we are God child that needs to be proud of who they are, for they are those who are thinking of others. Being prOud is the way God created us so we could get along with one another as we show concern for the well fair of one another.
Everyone had no choice where they were going to be born, yet everyone born has to live and grow up to become an instrument that is enabled by either God or remain in the flesh that is certainly not Godly. We are all born sinners in need of help, Dads and Moms are needed to give us security that is loving and kind for no one was born doling right, but having to be taught right from wrong in eating, drinking, sleeping, playing and working so they can be good civil citizens loving one another. I find that unless the Lords will be done, we are going to enjoying doing wrong and evil, rather that good and wholesome benefiting one another.
God saw the law was not good enough so gave His Son Jesus, to come and live among us, so we could accept Him and abide in Him, so we could be empowered to live the life of an Ambassador in the Kingdom of God.
Ephesians 6 gives us the assurance we need as Children of God that we can grow up to become representatives of the family of God'
Children and Parents
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,”which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” This goes for all even when our parents are not serving the Lord. God gives us a love for everyone regardless of how they may treat us.
And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.  It is so easy to provoke our children for anger rules most adults today and even in our Schools where discipline is lacking for we do not want to hurt anyone’s feelings. So we are seeing the students really punishing the parents and those in authority, which is seen by some many families dysfunctional today with mental problems.
Bondservants and Masters
Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free. What a comforting thought for we need to obey God and follow His principles to achieve our potential as individual. This happen when I submit to His way, truth and life. We are all working for either God or the enemy and it is seen by how we treat one another.
And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also[b] is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him. Everyone God created is in control of who they want to be like. This is not a threat but a fact and facts are proven by performance. I know whom I have believed how about you!
