Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Go and Sin No More
Go and Sin No More
Pastor Allan was speaking and
from my notes I present his edited sermon.
Today there is a lot of panic
and fear about our Oroville Dam and the full lake.
Let us look at things in the
Spirit what can we learn?The last 4
years we have diligently prayed for rain, and now we ask God to slow it
down.The overflow water is
uncontrolled, but people are working frantically to control water – but no man
can control it.
Understand in the Spirit, we
can control the Holy Spirit by quenching and grieving the Holy Ghost.God says, come into the living water as He
desires to pour out blessings; but we must be willing to allow the Holy Spirit
to have control.
Next week is our Fifth
Anniversary of our church.God had laid
it on my heart to start a church and my wife was in agreement with me and
God.I had no money, no organization,
only a call straight from God.I went to
the landlord and told him I have a desire from God, but no money.The Landlord said, you mean you have a desire
but no money?He asked me to present a
business plan, and then said, “Move in next week, rent free for one year.At the end of the year we will open your
books and decide how much you can pay.”
Our first service we had 45
people.God has a specific plan for this
church.Our motto is “Come as you are,
but don’t leave as you came.”
We do not condone sin,
however we welcome you here no matter your life style, just be willing to
listen to the Holy Spirit.Don’t be
critical of others.Allow God to work in
their lives and in your life.
It is difficult to
understand how someone who declares they are a believer, yet can go out and
commit abdominal sins. That is not what God desires and He wants to change
believers into His image.
John 8:1-5 Jesus went unto the Mount of Olives.
And early in the morning he came again into the
temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken
in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They said unto him, Master, this woman was taken in
adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law
commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what do you say?
Jesus acted like he didn’t hear them.He stooped and wrote in the sand with his
finger.Then he spoke unto them.He that is without sin among you; let him first cast a
stone at her.And again he stooped down,
and wrote on the ground.
One by one the men
left and after a few minutes, Jesus stood and asked the woman, “Where are your
accusers, has no one condemned you?”She
replied, None Lord.
said, “Neither do I condemn you, but go and sin no more.”
The woman was wrong
– her sin demanded death, but Jesus says, “Follow me and no longer walk in
darkness, and I shall give you the light of life.
How many here today
struggle with things day after day.Let’s get real, I am not a good man.I am not proud of my past and you probably feel that way too.We deserve death.Just because I think your sin is worse than
my sin doesn’t make it right.It is not
my job to condemn but my job is to present Jesus the way of deliverance.
We embrace – to love
not judge, and are very real about this.Understand the Word of God and what He expects.He says to come out from among them and be
separate from the world.
His desire is that you
understand the whole thing to live like Jesus did.Once you come to Jesus, your sins are
covered, and then you allow God to transform you by the washing of His Word and
by the blood of Jesus.Daily there is
repentance, as we ask the Holy Spirit to search our hearts and point out what
needs to change.
Come as you are and
He will receive you and give you a new heart, then He says, “Go and Sin no
