Insurgents siege control of the U.S. Capitol, but that does not define us as a Nation

Far too much is being made of this events that occurred on Wednesday, 6 January 2021 at the U.S. Capitol. The loss of life is tragic. Ashli Babbit was killed by a Capitol Police Officer while trying to enter thru a window. She never stepped foot inside the building but was shot dead nonetheless. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was attacked by insurgents and later died from his injuries. Three others died of natural causes on the Capitol grounds. We pray for each of their families and friends. We are also in prayer for the Officer that shot Ashlie Babbit, and his/her family.

Lord in Your Mercy, hear our Prayers for the family of United States Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick

Dear Heavenly Father God, we come to you in sorrow for a second day this week. Officer Brian Sicknick was in the performance of his duties when he sustained the injuries that ended his life last night. His death was unnecessary and a criminal assault upon his person and our Nation. Today we pray for Brian’s family, friends and fellow U.S. Capitol Police Officers. While we come to your in sorrow, we know you welcome Brian home in glory. Our Nation has never been so divided, and we ask for Your calm across our country. We ask all these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Our Sunday Message for January 3rd, 2021 comes to us from 1 Samuel – Jonathan and Davids Friendship – God Said It, That Settles It!

In this episode of Moyock Christian Fellowship’s Sunday Bible Bites, Brother Thom digs deeper into the relationship of Jonathan and David. Thom takes a look at this story and how many progressives think that this relationship was of a homosexual nature. In exploring this issue, Thom takes a look at other scripture that has been misconstrued by progressive Christians. The story of Noah and his son Ham in Genesis 9:20-27. As in the story of Jonathan and David, some have taken extreme liberties with their views and understanding of what happened here. Later Thom explores the most controversial scripture to gays and the LGBTQIA+ community, Leviticus 18:22 where we read that man lying with a man as with a woman, is an abomination. Thom wraps this lesson up with the effects of the words of some Pastors and church leaders have on the gay youth, and then closes with a look at all sin and how we should all desire a friendship like Jonathan and David had.

May God continue to bless each of us as we move into a brand New Year

May God continue to bless each of us as we move into a brand New Year. This is a time to renew ourselves in God and in His son, Jesus Christ; a time to ponder our vows to them and think of new ways to live our lives in them. It is a time to think of our neighbors and ways we can help them to live better lives and to be enriched by ours, and for our lives to be enriched by theirs. As Paul often alluded, our lives are a race to be run, a race on a path leading to the acceptance of God’s unconditional love and to eternal life, a race to be run to honor Him in all that we say and do. Sometimes we fail, we trip, we fall, but always we arise and continue the quest. May God bless us all.
