Bethany was blessed with another Spirit filled annual meeting with Elder Ricky Harcrow from Fort Payne, AL. We had good singing, good attendance, edifying prayers, good food, good fellowship, and powerful preaching by Elder Harcrow. He brought three messages before he had to leave on Saturday night. Friday night preaching was on Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made you free. Saturday morning he preached from John 14:8 on the Three In One Godhead with great clarity and explanation. After a good fish supper with fish by Bro. Gene York, a good singing service and more preaching by Elder Harcrow from John 17:1 on the Hour of Christ, His sufferings and the glory to follow. Some pictures to refresh your mind on the meeting and count your blessings.

All the prisons, jails and detention centers as well as the majority of law enforcement could be eliminated if the masses would just obey the laws of God. But this will not happen because the depravity of man, the carnal mind, is not subject to the law of God and doesn’t want to obey any laws of God or man made laws, whether it be the Ten Commandments or any federal, state or local statute.
Verse Of The Week 08-20-2019
“Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.” (Isa. 26:10)
