Directions: Highway 82 runs East and West connecting Tifton and Albany. Highway 313 intersects Highway 82 in Sylvester. When you turn onto 313, you will be traveling North. After about 10 miles, you will see a sign on the right of the road for the Church. The Church is on the left side of the road. You will not see the building until you turn because it is concealed by a tree lined drive.
We met at Providence 1st Sunday, April 2019.
Elder Todd came next in preaching. He referred to Abraham leaving with Isaac as God commanded going to a place he could see afar off. It was a mountain where he was to offer his only son on an altar of sacrifice. As they left the young men behind Abraham said, “I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you”. He trusted in God to make that happen. He was asked by Isaac. “Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? Abraham replied, “God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering”. He still was looking to God, preparing the altar, placing Isaak on it, then taking the knife to slay him. An Angel called from heaven to stop Abraham. He lifted up his eyes and looked, “behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns”. Our experiences with God are always based on something behind us, that is, an action that precedes us. All that dwell on the earth shall worship the Dragon/Satan, “whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world”. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the one true and living God that work in unity to accomplish their purpose established in covenant before the foundation of the world. The transgression in the garden plunged the chosen bride of The Son, in the loins of Adam, into death and separation from Him. He was sent to retrieve her, seeing of the travail of His soul, and being satisfied with the expected result. He died for all given Him in covenant with the Father, witnessed by the Holy Spirit, and redeeming them unto Himself. What He did for those on the earth before his crucifixion, he did for those on the earth afterward, at the same time! That is why we can say with Paul, “I am crucified with Christ” and, “Christ liveth in me”. The action took place 2000 years ago, but in God’s own time, it became effective in us as the Elect of God through sanctification of the Spirt, unto the obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ and according to God’s abundant mercy hath begotten us again, not by any thing we did, but according to God’s mercy, the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost. The scriptures Elder God used to support this portion of his message along with other thoughts are (Genesis 22:4-13; Isaiah 53:11; 1 John 5:7; Revelation 5:1-9; Hosea 14:2; ; John 2:24-25; Ephesians 2:13-17; 1 Peter 1:2-3; Titus 3:5).
Brother Mike Hasty, who is serving Old TyTy Church, was with us. God blessed him to preach, stirring up our minds in remembrance that, "when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son". "By one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned." Through the offence of one many be dead, much more by the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. It was not an offer, but a gift. It is not a cooperative effort, neither is it something we individually work for. It is the workmanship of God, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which cannot be done until God does His work! Our lives before God does His work in us our only concern was what appealed to us as natural beings. As the sons of God, Christ lives in us. The life we now live, in same flesh, we live by the faith of the Son of God. We see ourselves, and the world differently. The people doing wicked things and prospering in them disturbs us, especially when we also see God’s People floundering in comparison. We can see now, if could have become righteous before God by any effort on our part, there would have been no need for Jesus to die in our stead. These and many other thoughts were laid before us represented in the following scriptures he quoted or read. (Romans 5:5-10; 1 Peter 2:24; Habakkuk 1:13; Ephesians 2:1-2, 8-10; Hebrews 1:3; John 3:27; Galatians 2:20-21; 4:4-7)
