“From everlasting to everlasting, thou art God “– Psalm 90:2
It is hard for us as mere humans to grasp the fact of eternity or one that is eternal. Everything we know has a beginning and an end. Nations rise and fall, businesses are established and then close. People are born and die regardless of position or of prominence. We are seeing many changes in our nation things we were told were permanent are falling by the wayside. Fear could consume us if it were not for the fact that the eternal God still reigns over His creation and the affairs of man. We are such self-centered and existentially focused creatures, it is hard for some to realize the fact that their parents were once teenagers or newlyweds, that there was a time when they did not even exist, or especially that there have been hundreds or thousands of generations that have lived before and that will live after us, if Christ does not return first.
But there is One who lives today who was present when World War II ended in 1945 and by His grace America was victorious. The same One witnessed the Constitutional Convention in 1787, who saw Luther nail his 95 theses to the door of Castle Church in 1517, who was present at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, who observed Moses as he led the children of Israel through the Red Sea, who talked with Adam in the Garden of Eden, and who existed in perfect satisfaction before the earth was even created.
God is eternal. He has always existed and always will exist. He predates and will last longer than time. He has no beginning and no end. But the psalmist reminds us of a truth more impressive still: not only has God always existed but He has always existed as God. He did not have to work His way up to the position or earn the right to be God. He has always been, and will always be, God.
The great comfort of this truth is that God will not only still be here when we grow old and then face death—or when our children grow old and face death—but He will also still be God. His power, His dominion, His wisdom, His love, His goodness, His promises will not be diminished in any way by time or circumstances or world events.

What a great encouragement to our faith, to know that we believe in and trust a God Who is eternally God—from everlasting, to everlasting He is God. Knowing this also that He is God and He or His promises are not subject to change. “For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” (Malachi 3:6)
“In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.”
Psalms 31:1

2 Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.God has never made a promise that he has not kept. I cannot say that about myself. Solomon had something to say about God’s faithful promises in 1Ki 8:54 ¶ And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven. 55 And he stood, and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying, 56 Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.Peter is saying in the above verse that the promises of God given unto us are exceeding great and precious. And they are that. He has promised that he would save His people from their sins and this He has done through The Son Jesus Christ. This promises reaches back to the Book of Genesis and is referenced all the way through the Old Testament. The promise is made in the beginning of the New Testament when the Angel came to Mary and made the announcement of her being the earthly mother of God’s Son. Then the Angel speaking to Joseph giving him assurance of Mary’s faithfulness to him, and stating to him, the purpose of the birth of Jesus. Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. The angel also restated the promise made through Isaiah in Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.Who were His people? Those given to Christ before the world was spoken into existence by God. Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us* in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: (* His People)God has made many promises to His people may we become acquainted with them. In them we find assurance, joy in living, guidance in life and promises to be received in this life through obedience and Jesus even promises of chastisement for disobedient children. The Promises of God are exceeding great and precious. His promises are Non-conditional and conditional, may we understand more about the Promises of God.I believe that today many of God’s elect family are not enjoying Kingdom Living,(Read Romans 14:17) of righteousness, peace and joy, because they have not claimed the precious promises that are ours while we remain and live in this present world.There remaineth much to be said about God’s Promises.

Encouragement and Strength

We are living in a time that we need encouragement and strength to face life. It is in Christ that we will find our help. Let us consider what the Apostle Paul wrote to the Church at Phillippi regarding encouragement and strength.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me – Philippians 4:13
This verse is often quoted, “I can do all things through Christ” which is an incomplete quotation. Therefore we must complete the quote to get the full intent of what Paul is saying. We can do those things through Christ that strengthens us. There are things we do that weakens us ands surely this is not with the blessings of Christ.
It is not unusual in life to come up against things that are larger than we are, and we cannot overcome them by our own strength. It may be a lust that threatens to consume us, an addiction that repeatedly overcomes us. It could be resentment or an unforgiving spirit that is growing inside us. It may be grief and sorrow that seems to paralyze us. When we give our self over to these things they can weaken us spiritually and cause “our light” to be dimmed or extinguished.
So often we roll up our sleeves, stiffen our backs, and seek to make it through by our strength. We tell ourselves we can overcome if we just try hard enough. Yet, here is the spiritually strong apostle Paul admitting that his strength does not come from himself, or from his own willpower. He is not trying to do it on his own. Rather, he is looking to Jesus Christ for the power he needs.
Through Christ, you make it through trials. Through Christ, you overcome that temptation or addiction. Through Christ, you can you rise above your grief or depression. There is nothing that you cannot do through the strength that Christ has promised to you. Trust in Jesus Christ for your strength in handling the problems in your life and you will find that His grace and strength is sufficient for all the cares of life. Paul found strength through Christ. That is where we will find strength also.
Today may we seek to follow after those things that will strengthen us, and cause us to walk closer to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Prayer Meetings and Annual Meeting

We have had prayer meetings at Frank Primitive Baptist Church first of all thanking God for the rain that he has sent to some and then asking the Lord to send rain upon His dry thirsty earth that the farmers and all of us might have sufficient rainfall to cause the earth to flourish. We plan to meet again next Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM, for thanksgiving service. We were asking God to bless our Annual Meeting that begins this Thursday evening at 7:30 PM. We are asking His blessing upon Elder Bill Taylor, Pastor of Grace Church in Tn, our guest minister and all that will attend to be blessed to the extent of feeling the very presence of the Holy Spirit, That the spirit will be as the doctrine of De 32:2 "My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:"
We invite those who will to join us in our prayers and for our Worship Services that will begin Thursday evening at 7:30 and each evening through Saturday evening with the concluding scheduled service on Sunday morning at 11:00 AM.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much – James 5:16

We know God, is Almighty in power and does all things after His own counsel. Paul in writing to the Ephesian Church tells us: that God worketh all things after the counsel of his own will (Eph 1:11b). In the Book of Daniel we find these words: And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? (Dan 4:35) After considering the above verses and knowing of God’s perfect sovereignty and power, the question might come to mind: should I even bother to pray? If God is always going to do His will, and His will is always perfect why pray? The first of many reasons is that we are commanded to pray. Matthew 6:6a, says: “But thou, when thou prayest”, Paul instructed the Ephesian Church in this manner, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” In his writings to the Thessalonians,” Pray without ceasing”. James in the opening scripture exhorts us to be diligent in fervent prayer. Therefore it is important to recognize that the answer as to why we should pray comes from the same God Who tells us that He “works all things after the counsel of His own will.” This very same God informs us that effectual, fervent prayer on the part of His people avails, not just a little, but much! How can this be? How can an immutable, all-knowing, sovereign, eternal God listen to our prayers and consider them to influence the outcome of events great and small? This is something that I do not understand and we may never know or understand. But this we do know: God tells us that our prayers are heard and does have an impact. So then, when we are troubled or burdened we should pray. We should respond to temptation or trial by praying. What should we do on behalf of sick? Pray. What is our responsibility toward our civil authorities ? Pray for them. How can we make a difference in our nation and in our families and in our churches? Pray. What should we do when prayers are answered? Offer up a prayer of Thanksgiving! Why pray? We are commanded to pray and we have the assurance from God that we will be heard. Psalms 55:17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. Isaiah 65:24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear
