Another great morning in Barnsdall. I was ready to preach. Residents and family were ready to receive. This message will be available soon on our website. It's something for everyone to hear. There was a lot that happened after the message. Many asked for prayer, rededications, healings. God is good!

This morning we had a singspiration. I remember, as a kid, having Sunday night singspirations. We'd just sing all night long. So, today we sang the whole service. Residents love to sing and hear the old gospel songs. In between the songs I focused on being born again and knowing you are in Christ. It was a wonderful time.

This afternoon we dug deep. We started to look at the secrets of the Lord. Psalms 25:14 says, "The secret of the Lord is with them that fear (honor, respect, and worship) Him." We spent a lot of time understanding what it means to be "in Christ".

Traveling, ministering, and revising the schedule. "Yes Lord, I will go wherever you want me to go." Strengthening The Saved & Saving The Lost

This morning was a slow start with a lot of rain. We started a few minutes late but had a great time. The residents were a little slow too. Every time a new group came in we started over, but repeating the Word is a good thing. One of the residents yelled out, "Can you stay all day?" We have become family. Praise the Lord.

There were several in the room this morning who got excited when I began to speak about being filled with the Spirit of God. This is a promise in the Word. I gave the example of my initial experience back in the early 70s. In Acts 2:39 it says, "For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all who are afar off, . . .  I'd say we are as "afar off" as anyone has ever been but it's still for us today. Lots of response. God is so good!

We had another wonderful meeting this morning. Autumn Wood is growing. Many of the new residents and their family were in the meeting this morning. It is so encouraging to see the smiles on peoples faces as they hear the good news of Jesus Christ. We continue to: Strengthen The Saved & Save The Lost.

This was a very busy morning and service. We sang many hymns and ministered the Word. But, I also met a woman who traveled and preformed for the troops during the Vietnam era. A very interesting woman with lots of stories. She said, "I wasn't afraid because I new God would take care of me and He did." I also helped in recommending housing in some other communities for a few residents. We continue traveling: Strengthening The Saved & Saving The Lost.

There were many questions and comments this morning. The residents were really thinking about the responsibility that we have to receive the promises of God. God is a giver but we must receive.

I have not had a service like this for some time. Lots of residents, friends, and family. And also a lot of enthusiasm for the Word of God. We had raised hands and hand clapping to: Power In The Blood, - Oh, The Blood Of Jesus, etc. Then at the close of the service many wanted prayer for their healing. Praise the Lord!

East Gate Village is a large facility. They have a lot of residents. There are some services, we have upwards of 30 to 40 in the service. When you add geri chairs and wheel chairs into that mix it can take up a lot of space. Today we focused on: 1) What is the God kind of faith? 2) How do you use the God kind of faith? It doesn't matter how young you are or how old you are. You can operate in the God kind of faith. We raised our hands and thanked the Lord for His goodness and faithfulness. In these kind of services you can see that residents are hungry for the Lord. They are so thankful when someone comes to share the Good News.

Several years ago Ann and I sang in a gospel group called The Joyful Inspiration. We sang in a lot of churches, Woman's Aglow, conferences, etc. There were also some gospel dinner theaters we sang at. They were like a buffet restaurant with a stage. You could come and get a good meal with live gospel music. (This was way before Branson.) The reason I'm saying all of this is because this morning as I stepped into the assisted living center, I sang gospel music while the residents were having their morning snacks in the dining room. It brought me back to the old dinner theater. I did not hand out the song sheets because of all the food and yet they new all the songs and all the words. Many raised their hands as we sang. As I was leaving I heard, "Come back because we can't get out." I assured them I would be back. It's the very reason why I go.

I was ministering on Mark 11:22 - having the God kind of faith. One of the residents yelled out, "It'll take you to another level!" (Yes it will.) We were looking at using the God kind of faith with the promises of God. These promises need to be received. Or, you could say, taken. Because they have already been promised. At the end of the service we rededicated our selves to being doers of the Word. Now it's on to Bartlesville.

"This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad." We certainly did rejoice this morning. The room was more full than normal and we were ready to sing and rejoice. It's like releasing the tension on a spring or throwing a sling shot. Give them a chance and they will PRAISE THE LORD.

It is always a joy to come to Brentwood. There is a group of residents who love the Lord and love to share their faith with others. Today we looked at the promises of God and how to receive them with the God kind of faith found in Mark 11:22-24. God speaks those things that be not as though they were. That's the God kind of faith.

There are times when our meeting rooms look like a hospital emergence room - wheel chairs, geri chairs, oxygen tanks etc. It's good to know that every promise God has ever made is YES to the believer. He is the giver but we are the receivers. We must learn to be good receivers in order to benefit from the promises. Back in the 70's I graduated from an electronics radio and TV school. We learned a lot about transmitters and receivers. The transmitter can be putting out a powerful signal but if the receiver is not working or set properly it will never receive the signal. And so it is with God's promises. They are all YES to the believer but we must learn how to receive them. Our mandate is to Strengthen The Saved & Save The Lost.

I was met at the front door with, "Pastor Paul we are moving your service to a bigger room!" It was great. We met in the dining hall. Much more room to grow. Eyes lit up and residents got excited when I told them that every promise God has ever made was "Yes" to the believer. Then we began to discover how to receive those promises through faith.

With it being Monday and October 1st, the October activities calender's were not even up yet. I told the residents who did show up, "Let's make a joyful noise!" It worked. More residents came from everywhere. We had a great service. We looked at Mark 11:22, "Have faith in God." Or, have the God kind of faith. Many of the residents acted like they had never heard that before. The big question was, "how can you have the God kind of faith?" We are plowing new ground. It's exciting.
