Are you a joyful Christian or does your face
ever show a smile?
Are you a joyful Christian and can smile seeing
a bright side in every walked mile.
JOY is a fruit of the Spirit, so let us smile and
gladly wear it.
JOY to the world for our LORD has come!
JESUS paid our ransom and set us free!
Matthew 28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

9 And as they went to tell his disciples…

I was laying in the still of night,

watching the stars,

and enjoying the moon light,

when all of a sudden,

these words came to mind,

a song sang by,

The sons of Pioneers,

so many years gone bye.

The words that I remember,

go like this:

all day I face the barren waste,

with out the taste of water,

cool, clear water.

O, Dan can’t you see,

that big green tree,

there there is water running free,

cool, clear water.

In our land,

there are so many,

so many dry souls,

souls searching for water,

cool, clear spiritual water.

They search,

in all the wrong places,

when Jesus said,

He was the place to find,

cool, clear water;

so when you hear,

somebody like Dan,

searching for spiritual water,

send them to Jesus,

He is the tree,

where the everlasting water ,

runs free for you and me.

All believers will go in the rapture:

The rapture is an event for those who are “in Christ” (1 Thessalonians 4:14-17) and “counted worthy”:

Luke 21:36 – “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
So what does it mean to “be counted worthy to escape” the Tribulation? The following verses show that salvation will save you from God’s wrath. In other words, praying to escape the Tribulation is to pray for salvation, which will, in effect, save you from God’s wrath:

Romans 5:8-9 – But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 – For they themselves…

This chapter is one my Sunday school class put to memory!

1 Thessalonians 5 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Day of the Lord

But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep…

It was about this time of year, November, one night in 1958 at the little Baptist church on the hill top at a rival meeting the Preacher asked the question, if you died tonight where would you spend eternity? I went home and all that night I heard that question and I knew that to spend eternity in Heaven I needed Jesus to get me there; I decided to follow Jesus that night!

I sit here and sing,

on this nice old swing,

and wonder what stories,

we could tell,

and what songs we could sing.

My dear departed wife,

Oh, how she loved,

this old swing;

I would go to the door,

and listen to her sing,

as she enjoyed the fine day,

rocking to and fro,

on this old swing.

I sit here now,

two months have passed bye,

somedays I smile and sing,

other days I cry,

as I remember those good times,

we spent and talked,

on this old swing.

On this old swing,

she would sit and sing,

“Amazing Grace”

and ” Just asI Am”;

she loved to listen,

and sing along,

with her favorite song,

“It is noe secret what God can do,

what He has done for others,

He can do for you”.

Yes, I sit here,

with a sad feeling in my heart,

but 57 years together,

I thank God, she shared my heart;

this old swing is special to me,

because of the time spent,

brings precious memories to me;

and I sing to my God,

” How Great Thou Art”,

as I enjoy this  old swing.
