Homecoming Week is Sept. 22 -27, 2019
Brother Bill Thomas expertly preaches the glorious Word of God at the Pisgah church of Christ located in the beautiful North GA mountains of Ellijay, GA. His sermons are edifying and profitable for anyone seeking to hear God's Word and thus better understand God's will which He has indeed revealed unto mankind within the inspired scripture of The Holy Bible.
Brother Bill gives many accurate Bible verse quotations throughout each sermon so that you may follow along and prove to yourself his preaching is indeed from The Word of God.
† John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
† Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
The Holy Bible is indeed God's inspired Word straight from the mind of God who through the Holy Ghost inserted it directly into the minds of the original writers:
† 2 Peter 1:20-21 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
God has therefore indeed left us an instruction manual, revealing His will for and unto us through His Word:
† 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: †
God created mankind in His image as eternal beings, directly giving us His breath of life and making our very soul (Genesis 2:7). Make no mistake about it, there is certain a continued existence of our souls after we leave this earthly world. The choices we make here on this Earth determine whether our soul's forever future will reside in either the eternal damnation of Hell or the glorious everlasting life of Heaven.
† Revelation 20:14-15 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. †
Every man and women who has ever lived must seek out and obtain salvation in order to avoid that second and eternal death in the lake of fire:
† Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. †
Any free gift requires acceptance by the receiver. You will not be able or qualified to receive the gift of salvation unless you indeed obey all the salvation commandments specified by Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible:
† Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. †
Indeed God will not give a pass to those who that think they don't actually have to obey the Gospel commandments of Jesus Christ:
† 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
† Mark 16:15-16 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. †
Therefore salvation is indeed available for those who actually believe AND act on their belief by following and obeying the commandments contained within The Gospel of Jesus Christ:
† John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
† John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. †
God's Word is TRUTH:
† John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. †
Jesus Christ's Gospel Plan of Salvation:
† Hear The Gospel: Romans 10:17
† Believe The Gospel: John 8:24
† Repent from Sins: Luke 13:3 and 13:5
† Confess Faith: Matthew 10:32-33
† Be Baptized: Acts 2:38
† Put on the New Man: Ephesians 4:21-32
† Walk in the Light: Ephesians 5:8
Immersion Baptism is the very first work of true faith. Only after arising out of that watery grave will your soul be washed clean, putting that 'Old Man of Sin' to death to become a New Man without spot, acceptable unto God in order to receive His gracious gift of Eternal Life.
† James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
