Tuesday- What and Whose Authority? (Matt. 21:23-27; Mark 11:27-33; Luke 20:1-8)
In Jerusalem, Jesus’ virtual classroom has now expanded from his inner circle of twelve disciples to all the people who gathered to hear him. He taught one thing – the only thing that counts – the good news of God. The people were amazed at this Teacher and how He taught. The religious leaders (the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders) were not impressed. In fact, they were planning to kill Jesus. How could this uneducated Man exhibit such knowledge? They challenged Jesus, “Tell us by what authority You are doing these things, or who is the one who gave You this authority?” Jesus countered with a question to them, “I will ask you a question…Was the baptism of John from heaven or from men”. If they answered Him, he would answer them. This uneducated and untrained Man stumped them. They reasoned that however they answered would cause a problem between them and the people. They determined their best response was no response! The Jewish preachers, teachers, and church leaders determined they could not answer. They did not answer Jesus, therefore He refused to answer them. Jesus was on His way to Calvary to complete His mission. He made time to teach all who were receptive to Him. The church leaders were not receptive and refused to listen. Will you listen and be receptive to the Good News of Jesus Christ?
Monday – Cleansing the Temple (Matt. 21:12,13; Mark 11:15-17; Luke 19:45,46)
When Jesus entered the temple in Jerusalem, what did He find? Was the temple “…the house of prayer for all the peoples“ (Isaiah 56:7) or “…a den of robbers” (Jeremiah 7:11)? Jesus witnessed His house being used as a place for secular business activities of the money changers and livestock salesmen capitalizing on the needs of those who would come in for worship and sacrificial offerings. His Holy House had been transformed from a house of prayer and worship to a mere bazaar for the local merchants. Jesus was now in Jerusalem preparing to complete what He came to earth to do but He took time to do some serious ‘housecleaning’. He restored His house to what it was, a house of prayer. Are we taking care of Jesus’ house (the church building) today or have we turned it into a den of thieves or community marketplace where everything takes place, except prayer and worship?

A message from the pastor:

On Thursday, March 19, Governor Abbott issued an Executive Order for the state of Texas that went into effect at midnight, March 20. The executive order calls for a prohibition of gathering of 10 or more people. Although churches are exempt from the executive order because of freedom of religion, the decisions of Dallas County and the city of Dallas do apply to churches (no community gathering of 50 or more people). Based on the governor's executive order, the local requirements and my responsibility and desire to ensure the health and safety of the members and visitors of our church, we will not hold services at Greater Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday, March 22 or Sunday, March 29. Ministry meetings, including prayer, bible study and choir rehearsals will also be cancelled during this two week period, beginning tomorrow, March 21.

We are planning on having worship service on Sunday, March 22, via Facebook Live and conference call (for those without social media capabilities). We are working on the logistics right now; the schedule will be posted and communicated on or before noon tomorrow, March 21. Stay tuned...

You've tried everything. Really? Have you tried God? If Life's experiences are a test of your faith, what is your grade? Whether you believe it or not, prayer does change things; and people.

I am truly blessed to have been chosen as the pastor, and servant-leader, of the Greater Mount Olive Baptist Church on February 10, 2013. As we celebrate this 2nd Anniversary, I thank GMOBC for the opportunity to serve you as we work together for the Kingdom. I am filled with excitement as we are striving to be light and witnesses in our Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth!

It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, -Matthew 20:26-28(a)

[03/24/14]   Today's message: 'What About Me?' -Job 1:1-22

There was a man in the land of Uz named Job. Job was a very wealthy man, married, with 7 sons and 3 daughters. His possessions also were 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and very many servants; and Job was the greatest of all the men of the east. One day the sons of God were presenting themselves to God and Satan was among them. When God asked Satan where he was coming from, Satan answered that he was roaming the earth and walking around on it. What Satan was doing was looking for those he could lead in a life of sin, a life that did not include a relationship with God. God asked Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil.” Satan told God that if the hedge of protection was removed from Job and He put His hands on all that Job had that Job would surely curse God. Then the LORD said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him.” So Satan departed from the presence of the LORD. Satan then caused Job to lose his livestock, his possessions, his servants and his children. But Job DID NOT curse God. In fact, in his time of grief he worshipped God! Job said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I shall return there. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD.” Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.

As you contemplate on all that God has blessed you with and all He has done for you, will you praise Him at all times? In fact, if God had the very conversation with Satan today and said, "Have you considered my servant (your name)?", would you be worthy of such a test as Job? Is your praise limited to your possessions or your standing in life or will you worship God at all times, in all circumstances? When you consider what Job endured because of his faith and relationship with God, ask yourself "What about me? Am I worthy and willing to show Satan that I will praise God at all times?"
Verses to reflect on: John 10: 28; Romans 8:28; 1 Corinthians 10:13; James 1:2-4

[01/01/14]   This is the time of year where we RESOLVE to do the one thing or even several things we feel will make us look, feel, or be a better person. Along with your resolutions, I pray that 2014 is a year of spiritual growth for you. I encourage to you find a bible reading plan that appeals to you. One that fits your needs so that reading the Bible becomes a daily habit! In addition, find a daily or weekly devotion or inspirational reading to help keep you focused on what really matters in 2014.

I pray that 2014 will be a year that you know the immensely rewarding experience of reading God’s Word; that you grow closer to God and get to know Him better; that you spend precious time reading His Word. And lastly, I pray that you will resolve to make prayer and meditation an integral part of your life.

May God Bless You Immensely,
Rev. A.

[12/20/13]   Looking Back to Move Forward - 115 years serving God
Look back:
God moves in mysterious ways
What wonders He performed
Planted His footsteps on the sea
He rose forevermore

When this old ship of Zion
Gets a rocking and a reeling
And it seems like you're going to be thrown overboard
One thing I know, everything will be all right
If you just call on the name of Lord

Tell it like it is! (Sing Juanita)

[11/19/13]   What is your greatest need? Ask the Father whether privately or publicly; either way, it will be seen by God as it is done for Him.

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father who is unseen. Matthew 6:6
