What do you want the Most right now?
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Monday, 19 October 2020

 What do you want the most right now, more than anything? All down through History man has tried to be like God and the more they try the worse they get. Look at Adam and Eve in the Garden of Paradise being tempted by the tree of good and evil God planted to try them to see what they would do in obeying the Lord. Now they did not have any experience with sins Imagination, there Conscience and reason did not have memory yet of wrongs feeling according to Gods will. Eve is talking to Satan as she goes ahead and eats of the fruit God forbid, so she is tricked by Satan to become like God, able to do whatever she wanted to do and feel good at the time and all the time.
Remember God said Then the Lord God took [d]the man and put him in the garden of Eden to [e]tend and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you[f] shall surely die.”
 
 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.”
Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was [a]pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves [b]coverings.
Ever since then man has tried to find fulfillment not in God, but in religions like Hinduism, Zinism or Buddhism religions that are the fastest growing, very popular and they request you set and be quite doing nothing, but thinking about mediating on your breathing until your elevated to the area of feeling good about who you are, where you are. It can be done within a group or alone for it is having the ability to control you mind.
Zin gets you to want to do what you love, if that is what you want? Then You’ve arrived in the best possible place you can be. You’ll embrace the idea that “doing what you love” isn’t selfish, but actually better for you, the people around you, and the entire world. It is also what New Age teaches you do your thing and I will do mine, Don’t bother me and I will not bother you!
In time you’ll clarify what you love to do (and what you don’t) as your vision of “what’s possible” for your life + career begins to expand …you’ll build up your confidence muscles — taking tiny risks + little steps to start doing what you love, just a little bit more …you’ll build a plan to do what you love — for life. Your plan might involve an exciting, dramatic career overhaul. Or it might require nothing more than a shift in the way you think + feel about your present circumstances. The details of your plan might surprise you! You’ll commit to your plan — completely. Whether you’re committing “for the rest of your life” or just “for another five weeks, as a playful experiment,” you’ll be invited to go ALL in. And we’ll ALL go in — together.
 Zen and Buddha and other cults emphasizes rigorous self-restraintmeditation-practiceinsight into the nature of mind , "perceiving the true nature") and nature of things, and the personal expression of this insight in daily life, especially for the benefit of others. As such, it de-emphasizes mere knowledge of doctrine and favors direct understanding through spiritual practice and interaction with an accomplished teacher or Master. 
The teachings of Zen include various sources of Mahāyāna thought, (Great Vehicle") is a term for a broad group of Buddhist traditions, texts, philosophies, and practices. Mahāyāna is considered one of the two main existing branches of Buddhism with their emphasis on Buddha-naturetotality, and the  Muslims are monotheistic and worship one, all-knowing God, who in Arabic is known as Allah. Followers of Islam aim to live a life of complete submission to Allah. They believe that nothing can happen without Allah's permission, but humans have free will. 
Vipassana Mediation has benefits as you do it 10-15 minutes two times a day.  Improves Concentration of the mind-awareness and alertness-Memory-self-confidence-decision making ability-Capacity to work-performance in studies and Co-curricular activities==+Decreases agitation-fear-tension-nervousness-stress-anxiety-anger-fickle mindness.
As Christian we worship, reverence, have faith and hope in God to answer our prayers to become more and more like the Lord who create us all.
It was God who created us to not be in bondage to sin, but alive to become more and more like Christ the longer we serve Him.

Who controls us?
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 09 October 2020

Thank the Lord we are a Nation that has two Political parties the Democrats and the Republicans and they represent two radically different visions of the nation and it’s future, two different understanding of the role of government, two very different ways of reading the U.S. Constitution and even two different moralities.
There is so much at stake and we need to think clearly and carefully and Biblically about the choice before us, as we consider some of the issues directly involved in this election. 
Abortion and the Sanctity of Human life is a great moral scare and a shame to the United States of America. To protect and respect human life is a bassline responsibility of any government that honor marriage between and man and women. It is the breakdown of family that is now seeing no need for cop, no need for law and order and we need to see our Government support lawfulness and peace with justice so we can all rejoice.

IS THERE HOPE FOR AMERICA
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 02 October 2020

 This is a message ]our Son Dale in Cinn. Ohio gave last Sunday I will preach this Sunday!

"Is There Hope for America?” 
October 4, 2020 
 “Is There Hope for America?” 
If we do not turn from our wicked ways, the country of America is on a collision course with destruction. Is there hope for America? I guess that depends upon us, right? 
Allow me to give you snapshot of my opinion in what America has become since its inception… In my opinion… 
America is…  I. America is… A Nation Divided 
Never have we been more divided than we are right now. 
· We are divided racially and socially with the injustices that have taken place and continue to take place. 
· We are divided economically in greater degrees than ever; the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. 
· We are divided politically with the Democrats and Republicans, especially with the upcoming presidential election on the horizon. Some trust the government and some don’t. Some like the direction we’re headed while others don’t. 
· We are divided spiritually with the denominational Churches in the world. The Church is attacking one another in ways we’ve never seen before. Church houses are divided in unprecedented ways. 
· We are divided in the health world with the pandemic of Covid 19, masks vs. no masks; vaccines vs. no vaccine, etc. Who will fix it? Do we believe the scientists? Do we believe the doctors? Do we believe the media? 
· We are divided in our homes/families. Families are being torn apart.  Luke 11:17 
Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and a divided household falls. 
 America is… A Nation in Deception 
Deception is the act or state of deceiving or the state of being deceived. The dictionary says to deceive is to mislead by a false appearance or statement. Sounds like the kind of environment we live in doesn’t it. 
Never before has the deception of the devil been as prevalent as it is right now. The devil comes to rob, kill and destroy. He comes has a deceiver. Deception is running rampant. 
· We have been deceived by church leaders 
· We have been deceived by elected government officials 
· We have been deceived by the media (in all aspects to varying degrees) 
· We have been deceived by the medical experts everyone has a different interpretation of science 
· We have been deceived by the Devil! And he’s getting away with it!   
2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no one deceive you in any way. 
 III. America is… A Nation in Defiance 
America has always been a pluralistic nation, offering the freedom of religion to its people, but from our very founding it has also been a nation in which Christianity has always been the dominate Faith of our people. That is no longer true in reality. We have become like Judah of old, our nation now tolerates all gods except the Christians God, Jesus Christ, the God of our ancestors and of our history. 
We too are abandoning Him and opening our doors to any and all of the false gods of the world. In every city in America there stands houses of worship for every faith known unto man, and on top of that, America like Judah has made the works of our own hands our gods as well. – The god of sports, finances, business, music, entertainment. 
The decades of carnality and apostasy in the Christian Church has weakened our faith and allowed our society to believe that all faiths are equal, that Salvation is not exclusively in Jesus, and to say so, is to be intolerant. Now America is tolerant of all faiths and gods except the Christian Faith and the Christians God. 
That was the state of religion in Judah when she fell under the judgment of God. 
Are we still One Nation Under God? If so, who’s God is it? God or god? 
 “So help You (your) God.” In many courtrooms today. 
 John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. 
No one comes to the Father except through Me.” 
 IV. America is… A Nation in Depravity 
On June 25, 1962, the U.S. Supreme Court declared school-sponsored prayers unconstitutional in the landmark case Engel vs. Vitale. Prayer was taken out of the public school system. 
Public outrage was immediate and widespread. For millions of Americans, the Court had “kicked God out of the schools,” to use a phrase that has entered the culture-war lexicon. 
The Results of That Decision… 
Teen Pregnancy: For 15 years before 1963 pregnancies in girls ages 15 through 19 years had been no more than 15 per thousand. After 1963 pregnancies increased 187% in the next 15 years. 
For younger girls, ages 10 to 14 years, pregnancies since 1963 are up 553%. 
Divorce Rates: Before 1963 divorce rates had been declining for 15 years. After 1963 divorces increased 300% each year for the next 15 years. 
Educational Standards: The educational standard of measure has been the SAT scores. SAT scores had been steady for many years before 1963. From 1963 they rapidly declined for 18 consecutive years, even though the same test has been used since 1941. 
Crime: Since 1963 violent crime has increased 544%. 
Illegal drugs: Have become an enormous & uncontrollable problem. 
Legalized Abortion: In 1973, the Supreme Court legalized abortion nationally with the Roe v. Wade decision, since then over 61 million babies have been aborted legally in the US. 
Same Sex Marriage: In 2015 Supreme Court Declares Same-Sex Marriage Legal In All 50 States 
Pornography: Porn sites on the internet is a multibillion dollar industry, destroying untold lives of people of all ages and destroying the heart beat of morality in the our country. 
We are a pornographic society, so much so that there are reports that tell us that Americans spend more of their money each year on pornography than groceries.  
Psalms 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned into H-E-L-L, (sheol-the grave) and ALL the NATIONS that forget God.”  
V. America is… A Nation in Derision 
Derision means to be ridiculed, disrespected, mocked, to be literally laughed at, to be disrespected by others. 
The years of defying the Lord had taken a toll upon the nation of America. People around the world are looking at America with derision. 
Society itself is looking at the Church with derision, and saying how is the Church any different than the world?  Pornography in the Church.  Christian leaders “falling from grace.”  Divorce rate higher in the Church; 3 out of 4. 
The Church is looked at with great hypocrisy from the world’s eyes. They see no difference. In fact, a great deal of people would rather do business with a non-Christian as opposed to a Christian. They feel Christians are fake and hypocritical. 
Matthew 15:7-9 You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said: ‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’” 
VI. America is… A Nation in Denial 
Jeremiah spent 40 plus years warning his nation, but no one took him seriously, the nation as a whole remained in the state of Denial. The same was true of Noah’s society, God had determined judgment for their wickedness and like he did Jeremiah, He called out Noah to warn his society of pending judgment, but they too remained in a state of Denial, and we are told in… 
 Matthew 24:38, 39 “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark. And KNEW NOT until the flood came, and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son on Man be!” 
Did you notice what the people were doing while Noah was preaching and preparing the Ark for a refuge from the judgment to come? They were paying him no attention, they were in a state of Denial, and went on with life as usual. That was a disastrous mistake and it turned out to be a drastic mistake for Judah as well, and it will be a deadly mistake for America as well if we do not change. 
What if your doctor told you that you had a deadly virus and you needed to return to him and let him treat you and cure you or face a sure death? What would happen if you refused to accept his diagnosis, and just choose to go into a state of denial, thinking that if you didn’t face it, that it would sooner or later go away? The answer is simple, you would eventually die and nobody would be more surprised than you!! That is what happened to Judah; they refused to accept the Lord’s diagnosis and return to Him for their healing, and eventually died as a nation. 
That is where America is headed as sure as did Judah, as sure as did Noah’s generation, as sure as did Sodom and Lot’s wife. The Fear of God is our salvation. The Fear of God is to simply begin to take Him and his Word seriously enough to believe it and act upon it. 
“By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, Moved With Fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house, by which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.” 
America, the dark cloud of judgment looms over our land, and it is certain that it is soon to be raining the judgment of the Lord down upon us. Take the Lord seriously, run for the ark of refuge that is in Jesus and Jesus alone. 
Do not believe the lie that just because you attend church you are immune from judgment, or that America is special and beyond the reach of God’s judgment. That is playing the fool and the hypocrite. 
Romans 2:11 “For there is no respect of persons with God” Nor does He play favorites with nations, allowing some nations to live wickedly and some not to do so. 
Judah was [Zechariah 2:7] “…the apple of His eye”, yet that did not spare them from the judgment of God, as a matter of fact “…judgment Must Begin at the House of God…” 
1 Peter 4:17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 Now “If the righteous one is scarcely saved, Where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?” 19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator. 
The Heart of a Nation will Follow the Heart of the Church 
Therefore; the Church is on a collision course of disaster that must change! I propose to you that…  
America needs a Damascus Road Experience, that starts with the Church! 
2 Chronicles 7:13 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Slide 19 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 16 I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there. 17 “As for you, if you walk before me faithfully as David your father did, and do all I command, and observe my decrees and laws, 18 I will establish your royal throne, as I covenanted with David your father when I said, ‘You shall never fail to have a successor to rule over Israel.’  19 “But if you turn away and forsake the decrees and commands I have given you and go off to serve other gods and worship them, 20 then I will uproot Israel from my land, which I have given them, and will reject this temple I have consecrated for my Name. I will make it a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples. 19 “But if you turn away and forsake the decrees and commands I have given you and go off to serve other gods and worship them, 20 then I will uproot Israel from my land, which I have given them, and will reject this temple I have consecrated for my Name. I will make it a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples. 
Let’s look at ACTS 9 & “ACCEPT’” The Damascus Road Experience : A Damascus Road Experience Unfolds in Five Phases 
I believe that the Church, setting the stage for the rest of the country, must walk in these unfolding phases in order to see America saved.
