Bro Gaylen taught on the three tenses of salvation in our SS today and my message was on "The Faith and Conquests" click here for a look at the outline. In the afternoon we studied the Apostle Philip. Brother Turner was supplying the Pulpit in Victory Baptist Church of Chehalis. It was good to see some old friends return to visit our services today.

Tomorrow is my first day on the rolls of medicare. I'm on AARP Medicare Complete and have my monthly Rx ready to pick up this Wednesday at the Fred Meyer Pharmacy for the first time on the new card for health insurance and will go in next month for my "Welcome to Medicare" Physical at our family Dr. Also, it is my plan to enroll in the Silver Sneakers Program at the local YMCA and start working on getting back into a little better shape. :) Here are six tips I hope to practice more faithfully.

1. Lose weight with water.

Water is essential for everybody - it is also the key to losing weight. If you haven't been drinking enough water, your body has developed a pattern of storing water. This water retention equals extra unwanted weight. By drinking more water, you are not only flushing out toxins, you are also teaching your body that it no longer needs to store water. Drink at least 60 ounces of water (about 8 glasses) a day.

2. Soup up your weight loss program.

A simple dietary change will have you shedding pounds: eat a bowl of soup at least once a day. Nutritious, low-salt soups will nourish you as they flush waste from your body. People who eat a serving of soup daily lose more weight than those who eat the same amount of calories but don't eat soup. Go for homemade soup whenever possible, as canned soups are loaded with salt and chemicals. (Marion makes GREAT soup!)

3. Eat early to keep weight off. (This is a hard goal for a night person like me)

The human body follows a circadian rhythm, which means that the same foods eaten at breakfast and lunch are processed differently than when eaten at dinner. Studies show that when you eat your daily protein and fat at breakfast you tend to lose weight and have more energy; however, eating the same things at dinner tend to increase tendencies toward weight gain. I suggest that you eat your last meal of the day by 7 p.m. (Ouch!)

4. Eat smaller meals, more frequently.

Follow an eating schedule with five little meals every day. Eating steadily through the day keeps you from becoming famished and overeating at your next meal. Make a low-fat trail mix from raw almonds, pumpkin seeds, dried plum, and apples and have it available at all times to avoid the tempting lure of high-calorie snacks.

5. Adopt a balanced approach to your diet. (I wishe I had some "well balanced" friends to work with me on this)

Most of the fad diet programs out there nowadays are extreme in a few recommended foods, or else deprive the body of food altogether. This works in opposition to our metabolism and the results usually don't last, producing a yoyo effect that depresses your metabolic function - not to mention your self-esteem. We are natural beings that need a balance of nutrition from all sources. Your diet should consist of a balance of organic sources of lean protein, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, legumes, nuts, fruits, and vegetables. Instead of white rice and pasta, opt for brown rice, bulgur, millet, or buckwheat. Eat more green, chlorophyll-rich foods such as broccoli, kale, spinach, and asparagus. Eliminate candy, sugar, soda, and all simple sugars from your diet. Excess sugar ends up being stored as fat in your body, which results in weight gain. Also, keep dairy to a minimum because most dairy products are high in saturated fat. Avoid fatty foods, processed or fried foods. (This could be challenging)

6. Walk off the weight.

The No. 1 cause of weight gain is inactivity. Physical activity is the key to speeding up your metabolism and burning excess calories. The best way to be physically active is to use your legs! Walk as often and as long as you can. Always take the stairs instead of the elevator.
Step outside during your break at work and take a walk around your building. Consider joining a local hiking club. Try taking a walk 30 minutes in the morning or 30 minutes in the early evening.I hope this article helps you shed some pounds and add on the years! I invite you to visit often and share your own personal health and longevity tips with me. May you live long, live strong, and live happy!-Dr. Mao (Thanks Doc, I will try) LJK

Don't Tread on Me

What will we do?

When the "authorities" come for us, do we run, fight, or go with them quietly to this day’s version of the stake? What am I talking about? I'm talking about what my mother-in-law, who lived through the Nazi rise to power in Hitler's day, says is happening today just as it did in those days in Germany.

There is more and more legislation before congress here in the USA to remove our rights and the protection of law. Some are trying to make it so that they can search our homes without a warrant, declare us a terrorist threat and remove all our rights without trial, accusation, probable cause or even recourse.

The goon squads will be made up of special chosen officers that will be "trained" to handle the situation expediently. They will simply follow orders unquestionably and efficiently being fully confident that they are doing the "right" thing because of the training received from those in authority. But where did this "authority" come from? Didn't we the people put our leaders in office? Many did indeed vote for the leftist socialist regime that has now taken control of our country. But what of the legality of it all and how far are godly people supposed to allow the ungodly things of questionable legality to go on?

The question was once raised about the citizenship of Mr. Obama. Has anyone actually seen a true and legal copy of the man's birth certificate? I mean a true and legal document, not a decorative form drawn up after the fact for personal reasons. How can a question like this go so easily ignored? US citizen ship is a legal requirement for the President of the United States. If it cannot be shown that he is a US citizen, no matter what else, he was not legally qualified as a candidate for the office of the President of the United States.

Documentation for his school said that his nationality was Indonesian, thus showing that he was not considered as an American citizen at that time, and it also shows that his religion was Islam, as an added point of information. If he is not legally entitled to his office, do we obey him? Do any of his Executive Orders have any legal value to them at all?

How much should we honor usurpers that move into positions of authority by any shade of color? That statement is NOT a racial statement. It has to do with the fact that deception was used by the liberal media and extreme leftist politics to bring us to where we are today in America.

So, what will we do when they come for us? I was asked this question recently and I think it is a serious question and I'm troubled by it. My personal little arsenal of weapons for personal protection is not a match for the firepower that can be raised against me by the government if they chose to do so.

It is the old question of fight or flight. Should we go down fighting? Or should we resign to the fact that they will smear what we stand for and lay down with the assurance that God knows the truth?

Sometimes I want to go against them with all that I can, as futile as I know that would be, and if they should take me alive, I hope that I would be enabled by the grace of God to stand tall with the ancient martyrs of truth that were eliminated by the earthly powers of times gone by. The cowardly side of me wants to run. But where can we run to today? There is not a place on earth today like America was in 1776. What will YOU do when they come for YOU? Bad Boy.

Beautiful day. Many are out pampering the carnal appetites of the flesh this weekend. There is nothing more satisfiying than to be in the house of the Lord on His day and to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. Of coarse, you must have the Spirit of Jesus in your heart to really know what I'm talking about here. We thank the Lord for an AP on brother Skip. His surgery went well and he is recovering nicely. My message today at TLBC was on "The Faith of Rahab." A copy of the sermon outline is on the lower left part of the front page of our church website. click here

There is no distinctly Native American criminal Congress. -Mark Twain

Here it is, time again for another update. We had three first time visitors in our services today at TLBC and three return vistors. Praise the Lord. Grandma Killion was out ill and the Turners were in Chehalis supplying for the Victory Baptist Church there. Pray for VBC as they seek a new Pastor. Brother Mark Fenison has moved to Ohio to Pastor a church there. My sermon today was on "The Faith of Israel at Jericho" and the outline is on the front page of our website click here.

I have some extra copies of my second book "The Thessalonian Doctrine" available as "signed copies" at an author's discount if you are interested. Contact me at

For more information about either one of my books, go to the publisher's author page here.

If you would like a free weekly Bible study outline sent to you by email, request that here.

Subject: Recall Notice

The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central components of the heart and mind. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S. I. N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction
2. Foul vocal emissions
3. Amnesia of origin
4. Lack of peace and joy
5. Selfish or violent behavior
6. Depression or confusion in the mental component
7. Fearfulness
8. Idolatry
9. Rebellion and a bent toward self destruction.

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required. The number to call for repair in all areas is: P - R - A - Y - E - R.

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component. No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience (long s uffering)
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control (temperance)

Please see the operating manual, the B. I. B. L. E. (Believers'Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility. Thank you for your attention. GOD

P. S. Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "knee mail".

Did you know?

We had a good prayer time last night at TLBC but did you know that TODAY is Nation Prayer Day? Yes, Mr. BO signed a proclamation to that effect. click here Pray with me:

Dear heavenly Father,

I come to you bowing in reverence to the one true and living God and acknowledge that you are Holy, Just and Good, and your mercy endures forever.

I confess that I am a hell deserving sinner. It is like the prophet Isaiah said, "I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of a people with unclean lips." I have sinned as a person and my nation has sinned as a country. You would be just if you turned your back on us for ever but we come claiming the shed blood of the Lamb of God who taketh away the sin of the world according to your divine plan of salvation.

I thank you for your mercy and grace. I thank you for your providential watch care over my country and me in spite of our sin. I thank you for the freedom from sin that we can have in Christ, your only begotten Son, and for the political freedom we have in America. Thank you for the right to LIFE. Thank you that I can pray to you directly like this and not through the rules and regulations of any city like Mecca, Rome, Washington DC or any other. Thank you for the right to bear arms and protect myself and my family from evil men. Thank you for a work ethic that does not give a sense of entitlement to a free ride in life that must be paid for by labor and taxes of others. Thank you for those in the Armed Forces of our land that protect our liberty.

And now as I have endeavored to ADORE you first of all and CONFESS the sins of my land, and myself and offer THANKSGIVING for your bountiful blessings, I come to the SUPPLICATION in the ACTS of prayer. I ask for CHANGE. I pray for Mr. Obama. I ask that you change his heart. Change the mindset of this land. Turn us back to the nation that was founded on Biblical Principles. Change us from greed to grace. Change us from unborn baby killers to unashamed truth tellers. Change us from oppressive governmental regulation to open gracious regeneration. Change us from being over run with illegal aliens and potential terrorists to being open for real opportunity to those that would enter legally and become one of us rather than demanding that we change our culture and language for their benefit. There are so many changes that could be made for the better in our land. Oh, God, hear my prayer and hinder those that are bent on moving away from the basic freedoms that we started out with in America and are placing us more and more in bondage and servitude to government. Change us back to the Godly standards that we once knew. I ask this in Christ's name. AMEN.

We had a great First Friday Fellowship on the 1st of May and good services today at TLBC. I preached Friday night on "The Truth Is not Free" and the outline is shown below. I preached this morning on "The Faith of Moses and Compliance". The outline for this sermon is on the front page of our church website. click here

The Truth Is Not Free

Proverbs 23:17-23

Our text for this message is verse 23. Ponder for a few moments the fact that the TRUTH is not free. Now, don’t worry. We are not going to pass the plate - but pay attention because if you really want to know the truth, you need to realize that it definitely will cost you something. We believe and teach that salvation is by the free grace of God. In other words, if you would be saved today you need only receive the free gift of salvation by God’s grace through repenting of your sins and trusting Christ as your Savior by faith. Salvation is free but the truth is not. The Bible tells us that the truth is something that can be bought and sold. Let us look for a few moments at some ways that the truth will cost us something if we would know it, live it and stand in it. I pray that God would enable me to preach the truth in sincerity and in love and that He might grant to you the grace you need to buy it.

1. Study Time. 2Tim. 2:15, Jn. 5:39, Acts 17:11.
A. More in the Word - less in the world.
2. Prayer Time. Prov. 2:1-6, 1Cor. 2:12-14.
A. More with God – less with others.
3. Service Time. Lk 9:23, 57-62.
A. More church than anything. Help everywhere you can. Not just on Sunday morning only - but daily.
1. It takes individual effort: Spiritual growth, personal work, & private devotion.
2. It takes ecclesiastical effort: Printing, Radio, Tapes and Videos, Transportation, Music, Teaching, Visiting, Tract Ministry, Missions, grounds and building maintenance, etc.
1. We usually don’t say too much about this but it is a Biblical fact.
2. Someone must pay for the Bibles, Tracts, Tapes & Videos, Utilities, Bible Study literature, office supplies, postage, Missionary travel expenses, Rent and etc.
3. If you are only a receiver and not a giver, then you do not have the truth no matter how much you may think you know. 2Cor. 9:6-7.

CONCLUSION: Please do not confuse what has been said here about the truth, with Gods free gift of salvation. If your are lost and you know it and you want to be saved more than anything else in the world, I have good news for you. Your salvation has been bought and paid for already by the Son of God Himself! Look by faith to the Lamb of God right now and trust Him for your souls salvation. He can save you and He will save you when you trust Him alone for salvation.
But, if you think you can always be a church freeloader, may God put you on notice right now that true Christian service will cost you something. The Christian Crowns of Service are not freebies. They come after faithful service according to the word of God. The Crown of Life will cost you your life. Rev. 2:10. Yes, Salvation is free. Praise God for that! But the truth is NOT free. I urge you now to BUY the truth and SELL it not. AMEN. 10-86, 4-87, 5-09.
