The Deacon's Bench

The Deacon's Bench

Heeeeere’s Jesus!

The video below has been circulating for a while — YouTube says it was first posted three years ago — but I hadn’t seen it until now. It’s comedian Steve Harvey’s “Introduction to Jesus,” (a man, as he notes, who needs no introduction). It seems a fitting piece to post at the start of Advent. Prepare ye the way of the Lord!

I found your Web Site by Google
And I wish you the best you can get,
the peace of God through Jesus Christ.
Welcome to visit my Site.

Blessed are those who become left
There are those that Jesus shall fetch
“Then two men will be in the field: one will
be taken and one will be left; two women
grinding at the mill, one will be taken and
one will be left. Watch therefore, for you don’t
know in what hour your Lord comes.” Matt.
24:40-42. Which are those who will be left?
Please, read the parable of the darnel in Matt.
13:24-30, 39-42. “First, gather up the darnel
weeds, and bind them in bundles to burn them;
but gather the wheat into my barn.”
“As therefore the darnel weeds are gathered up
and burned with fire; so will it be at the end of
this age. The Son of Man will send out his angels,
and they will gather out of his Kingdom all things
that cause stumbling, and those who do iniquity,
and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There
will be weeping and the gnashing of teeth.” 40-42
These bundles will be gathered before Jesus
fetches the Assembly. ” First, gather up the darnel
weeds, and bind them in bundles to burn them;
but gather the wheat into my barn.” Those who are
disobedient to the demand of the Lord and are
unwilling to leave churches and denominations,
the great Babylon, they will be among the weeds,
and be taken away before Jesus fetches the Assembly.
Please, read 1 Thess. 4:15-17. “For this we tell you by
the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are
left to the coming of the Lord, will in no way precede
those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself
will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice
of the archangel, and with God’s trumpet. The dead in
Christ will rise first, then we who are alive, who are left,
will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to
meet the Lord in the air. So we will be with the Lord
Jesus’ coming will be in highest degree public
It will be no secret Rapture
In the free churches the world around
there are thousands of preachers
and bible teachers, but none can explain
what the Assembly of God is
We must humble us before God’s word
to understand what the Assembly of God is
Jesus cannot come today
because the Assembly of God is not ready

Big day in the Big Easy: 10 new deacons
Deacon Mike Talbot has the scoop: 10 men today were ordained as Permanent Deacons for the Archdiocese of New Orleans. This group of men was formally selected on the day the evacuation of New Orleans began as Hurricane Katrina approached. The immediate aftermath of the storm for this class would be

Gaudete! And let's break out a carol or two...
"Gesu Bambino," anyone? This is one of my favorites, and nobody does it better than these gals: Kathleen Battle and Frederica von Staade. Enjoy.
