A Good Day In the Lord!

This has been a good day in the Lord! I have been working on the podcasts found at https://www.buzzsprout.com/546637 and God has been blessing my efforts. There are so many new avenues of outreach that I have been learning lately. With all the turmoil in our world and the seeming opposition to the church we are still progressing. I cannot help but declare the words of the Psalmist

Psa 103:1-2 KJV – 1  Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, [bless] his holy name. 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

The Lord is deserving of our praise!

Great Day of Communion!

Yesterday was a great day of enjoying communion at Fountain of Life Community Church in Prescott Valley, Arizona. Due to the Covid 19 we had a limited number in attendance but as of this morning we had almost 200 who joined us on our live stream. I hope that many of those on live stream took the communion with us. The first Sunday of each month we enjoy receiving the communion as a congregation with few exceptions. Just wanted to give an update!

A New Word in Podcast 44

I wanted to update our blog with the current podcast. I hope it will be a blessing to your heart!

This is Bible patterns and principles. My name is Dan R Crouch and I am the pastor of Fountain of Life Community Church in Prescott Valley, Arizona. We're a classic Pentecostal church that believes the Bible is the only true word of God, and that salvation only  comes through the person of God's son, Jesus Christ. I believe the most important decision in your life is to accept Jesus Christ as your personal lord and Savior. Repenting  of your sins and giving your life to Jesus is the key to joy, peace and success in your personal life. At Bible patters and principles. My goal is to help you find the peace and comfort God wants you to experience. Let us look at our spiritual principle for today.

I Corinthians Chapter one, verse 18 declares,   For the preaching of the cross is to them that parish foolishness. But unto us, which are saved, it is the power of God.  

Today we want to focus on the real meaning of the cross. To non believers. It does not make sense. They think that we who call ourselves followers of Jesus are just foolish. Little do they realize that the rejection of the cross seals their place in eternity. Without the cross it is no wonder that the world is full of hopelessness and despair.

It is the opposite to those of us who know of the power of the cross. It is our hope and peace. All of our expectations of eternity are based in the deliverance of the cross. The cross is the power of God that brings  salvation. The death of Jesus Christ on the cross and his resurrection sets us free from sin and all its punishment.  To reject the crosse is to face eternity without God. Without the cross, there is no escape from the punishments of God and what the Bible names as hell itself. However, with the cross, we look at eternity as a place of blessing.  where we enter the presence of God. Let me encourage you to accept the sacrifice of Christ on the cross and secure your place with God in eternity.  

I hope the words we have shared today has spoken to the needs of your life. Jesus wants to minister to you. If only you will let him. If you have not already done so. Invite Jesus Christ. to be your lord. All you have to do is invite him to forgive your sins and be your personal savior. If you ask, he will honor your prayer.  

This has been Bible patterns and principles. My name is Dan. R Crouch sharing another Bible truth To strengthen your daily Christian life.  Please let us know if you're enjoying these brief teachings from the word of God orIf you have a prayer request, you can write to us at: Bible Patterns and Principles@ gmail. com  We would very much enjoy your comments and would feel very privileged to pray with you concerning the needs of your life.

 

 

Be Ready! Jesus Is Coming Again!

This is  Podcast Episode 31 in our new endeavor to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. I hope you enjoy the podcast and the transcript!

This is Bible patterns and principles. My name is Dan R Crouch. I am the pastor of Fountain of Life Community Church in Prescott Valley, Arizona. We are a classic Pentecostal church that believes the Bible is the only true word of God. And that salvation only  comes through the person of God's son, Jesus Christ. I believe the most important decision in your life is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Repenting of your sins and giving your life to Jesus is the key to joy, peace and success in your personal life. At Bible patterns and principles,  my goal is to help you find the peace and comfort God wants you to experience. Let's look at our principal for today.

I Thessalonians, Chapter four verses 16 to 18 declare For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout with the voice of the Ark Angel, and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we, which are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the Lord wherefore comfort one another with these words. We are told to comfort one another with the words of our scripture for today. It is a promise that has three parts. We are told first that our Lord is coming again. The second declaration is that the dead in Christ shall rise first and then we are given promise that we who are alive and remain on the earth shall be caught up to meet those who have gone before us in the air. Then we shall be ever with the Lord. The promise is sometimes called the Blessed Hope of the church. If we as Christians were limited by the promises and the hope of the world in which we live, life would be pretty hopeless. However, we have so much more to expect because of our faith in our Lord Jesus. We're promised that Jesus is coming again. We do not need to fear the future. It does not matter whether we die or whether we are alive. When Jesus comes, we will join him in the air.

Another place in Scripture tells us that we shall be changed in a moment. In the twinkling of an eye at the last trump. The dead in Christ shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed. What a great promise. God wants you to be with him in eternity. If you have not already repented of your sins and asked Jesus Christ to be your personal savior, you need to do so now. Then you will know the hope these verses talk about.  Do not place your hope in this world. But look for the soon coming of our Lord.

Communion Episode 26

We now have 26 Podcasts on our website. Below is the transcript for podcast 26. I hope you will enjoy the new podcasts as we upload them. I hope you will check in with us daily.

 

This is Bible patterns and principles. My name is Dan R Crouch and I am the pastor of Fountain of Life Church in Prescott Valley, Arizona. We are a classic Pentecostal church that believes the Bible is the only true word of God and that salvation only comes through the person of God's son, Jesus Christ. I believe the most important decision in your life is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, repenting of your sins and giving your life to Jesus is the key to joy, peace and success in your personal life. At Bible patterns and principles. My goal is to help you find the peace and comfort God wants you to experience. Let's look at our verse for today. First Corinthians chapter 10 verse number 16 declares: The cup of blessing, which we bless. Is it not the communion of the blood of Christ, The bread which we break?

Is it not the communion of the body of Christ? It is the custom of Fountain of Life to celebrate the Lord's supper or what is called communion on the first Sunday of each month. It is celebrated by the serving of a wafer and a cup of grape juice to each believer present in the service. After meditating on the real meaning of the elements that are served, we eat the wafer and drink the juice as a remembrance of the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins. The communion is not held in high esteem by some because they do not want to be reminded that our salvation was purchased by the body and the blood of Jesus Christ, but without the broken body of our Lord and his shed blood, we have no salvation. The Bible says the stripes He bore on his body were born that we would not have to be punished for our sins.

He bore the beatings for us. His shed blood is the covering for our sins. The scripture States that without the shedding of his blood, there is no remission of sin. We are honored that we can celebrate communion because we are reminded of the high price that God paid for each of us. We are reminded of how much he loves us. I look forward to the communion each month at Fountain of Life it is a testimony of the salvation that Jesus has provided for us.

Podcasts: Bible Patterns and Principles

I have just made our podcast available and now have 13 Podcasts on the Buzzspout.com site. It is my goal to add several podcasts each week and spread the good news that the Bible shows us how we can have a personal relationship with God.  Also we will take time on some of the podcasts to bring principles of comfort and at other times we will try to deal with some of the misconceptions people have about the Bible. We are not ashamed to declare that we are Christians because of the fact that we have accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. He is only way that you can come to God. (John 14: 1-6) I hope that you will visit our podcasts and give them a listen. You can find them at:https://www.buzzsprout.com/546637

Podcast Episode 8 Jesus is the Way to Salvation

 

Bible Patterns and Principles https://www.buzzsprout.com/546637

This is Bible patterns and principles. My name is Dan, are Crouch and I believe the most important decision in your life is to accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior. Accepting Jesus is the key to joy, peace and success in your personal life. I am here to show you the way you confined true relationship with God through Jesus. My goal on these podcasts is to help you find the peace and comfort God wants you to experience. Let's look at our principal for today, John. Chapter 14 Verse number six Jesus declares I am the way, The truth and the life. No man cometh unto the father but by me. In our last podcast, we said there is no other name under heaven whereby we can be saved but by the name of Jesus. It is a principle declared by the Bible itself. You cannot believe the Bible and not except that Jesus is the son of God in the savior of the world. In the verse we have read today, Jesus himself declares that he is the only way to his father. No man cometh to the father, but by me to have our sins forgiven. We must come to God through his son Jesus. There is no other way. It is Jesus who makes the statement. I am the way you must either accept his words or declare that you believe that Jesus was deluded or outright lied. I choose to believe the words of Jesus recorded in John Chapter 14 Verse number six are true. It is only through him that we have relationship with God. It is only through the death and resurrection of Jesus that we can be saved. Do not listen to the deceivers that would tell you there are many ways to come to God. There is only one path that you can follow If you were to find the peace and hope that God wants you to have let me encourage you to follow the truth of the Bible and ask Jesus to be your personal savior. He wants to give you salvation and eternal life. That is the principle and truth for today. This has been Bible patterns and principles. My name is Dan. Are Crouch sharing another Bible truth to strengthen your daily Christian life.

8 Days of Thanksgiving

[Psa 37:1-7 KJV] 1 [[[A Psalm] of David.]] Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. 3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; [so] shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass. 6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. 7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

I preached on these verses last Sunday at our morning Church Service. The key words being, Trust, Delight, Commit, and Rest were the subject of the sermon. The topic was  the lessons that Nancy and I have learned in the weeks of hospitalization and rehablilitation that have been our life in the last two months. Nancy has been under the care of doctors and nurses since September 30th. During that time we have been involved in a long term trial that is ongoing and has taught us much about the faith we have in God. 

It has been said that faith untried is not real faith. It remains in doubt. We understand that as never before. I have no doubt that our faith is real. It has stood and continues to stand in the face of our circumstances. Inspite of everything, I know that we are both better people who in the future will be more loving and more atuned to the needs of others than we ever have been before.

These last 8 days, we have continued to see the hand of God directing us. He leads every step of the way. Nancy and I are now back at Encompass Rehabilitation Hospital where Nancy is learning again to stand and walk so her life can return to normalcy. We have been told our release date is on December 12. We need all of you to pray with us that Nancy's strength will increase so that she is ready for the transition.

Our adventure into adversity is far from over but we are Trusting, Delighting, Commiting, and Resting in our Lord and Savior! We are looking for His total deliverance from this time of trial and distress.

Thanks Giving !

[1Ch 16:8 KJV] 8 Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.
[Psa 92:1 KJV] 1 [[A Psalm [or] Song for the sabbath day.]] [It is a] good [thing] to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:

[1Th 5:18 KJV] 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Nancy and I are here at Honor Health Hospital, waiting for the wound team to come and put a wound Vac on the wound created by the surgery she had several days ago. Once that is done we are evidently candidates to be transferred to a skilled nursing facility. 

Nancy has been in either rehab or hospital care since September 30. Now the Thanksgiving holiday is approaching and we do not know where we will be. Either in the hospital or a skilled nursing facility. We are not concerned. When you pray "God, not our will but yours be done!" you have to wait and see what he will bring to pass.

Wherever we end up, we want to express our "Thanksgiving". God has given us so much for which to be thankful. Nancy and I thank God for leading the way for her full recovery from the maladies which attacked her body. She has had excellent care by the doctors and nurses who have cared for her. They have been among the most caring people we have ever met.

Also we want to express our thanks for the congregation of Fountain of Life. Their prayers, cards, and expressions of concern have carried us through a very difficult time.  We do not have any understanding why God has allowed these circumstances to come into our lives but we are convinced He has a plan. Our faith is being strengthened and expanded into new areas as we see the working of His love in us.

Wherever we spend our Thanksgiving Day, we want to declare to everyone that we are Thankful for all of God's blessings on us. He has given us far more than we deserve! Most of all we thank Him for our Salvation and the indwelling of His Holy Spirit.

It makes all things in life worth while!

Keep Looking Up!
