The Feeding House Ministries, is a teaching ministry that focuses on your soul and your eternal destination.
Mission: As members of "The Feeding House Ministries, Inc." we join ourselves together as a body of Christian believers to seek personal and spiritual growth, by studying to show ourselves approved...rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2;15). We strive to uphold a unity, based on the lordship of Jesus Christ, guided by biblical principles and moral laws of God. We affirm our commitment to the triune God, perfectly revealed in Jesus Christ. We recognize that the biblical standards for life within the body of believers are necessary bases upon which to live. We dedicate ourselves to individual, personal, and spiritual growth, and the building of a Christ-centered Bible teaching ministry that will provide spiritual nurture for all. We seek to honor Christ by integrating faith, learning, and living , as we reflect the process of maturing in Him. We choose to make decisions motivated by unselfish love and divine truth. We desire to feed God's lambs and feed God's sheep according to John 21:15-17, and to preach the word of God, being persistent, whether the time is favorable or not, and to patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage our people with good teaching (2 Timothy 4:2), and then carry out the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Matthew 28: 19-20).
1 Thessalonians 1:6 And you became followers of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit,
As a believer, you received the Word—the gospel despite opposition and persecution. Remember, the gospel still bares fruit. Some people still received the Word and accepted Christ despite the opposition and persecution. As a believer, the Holy Spirit rewards your commitment to Christ. He stirs joy in your heart and you live, giving you full assurance of your eternal salvation and deliverance from death. One other fact is important—the believers became followers of Paul and Christ, and follow means to imitate. Is it right for people to imitate and follow preachers and other outstanding Christian leaders? It’s a daring thing to expect people to imitate the preacher, but Paul adds and of the Lord, because he only expected or desired imitation as he himself imitated the Lord Jesus. The peril of it all is that people so easily and so readily imitate the preacher when he doesn’t imitate the Lord. There are two striking lessons in this point. First, nothing, absolutely nothing, should keep a person from receiving the Word of the gospel—not even opposition and persecution. Second, believers—preachers and laymen alike—must guard their lives ever so closely and make sure they’re living for Christ and living ever so diligently for Him. Why? Because others are watching and following us—some child, some adult, some neighbor, some friend. There are people who look up to us and follow after us. Whether we like this fact or not, people are watching us. Therefore, it behooves us to follow Christ as perfectly as we can. As Paul said, And you became followers of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Matthew 9:17 Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."
The new and old wine illustrates a new life and age of more power. Christ was saying that the new wine would burst the old bottles, because the new life and age which He ushered in had too much gas, energy, and power for the old bottles. The pressure would burst the old bottles, because there was just too much power. Christ was saying that the answer to handling old and new wine is to preserve the good of both. The old religion wasn’t to be cast aside, because it had some strengths and some benefits. The answer wasn’t to reform it, but to fulfill it by ushering in a new life and age. The old bottles—restrictions, weren’t strong enough to contain the new life which Christ was bringing. The new wine would have been lost if it had been put into the old bottles of religion, and there would be no new life or age, no hope for us whatsoever. One of the biggest mistakes we make is our pouring new ideas and new methods into old bottles, that is, pouring new ideas and methods into the old restrictions and ways of doing things. We must not let the traditions of the old way bring about our death. Our rituals, ceremonies, and religion will die apart from the new life in Jesus Christ. Even we ourselves will die apart from our new life in Christ. Our traditions, and our religion can keep us from Christ when we focus our attention on rituals and traditions instead of focusing on God. So, don’t put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved. Very simply, let go of rituals and ceremonies, and accept real life that’s found only in Christ. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
Psalm 90:4 For a thousand years in Your sight Are like yesterday when it is past, And like a watch in the night.
The brevity of life—the swiftness of life. Moses was at least 80 years old when he wrote this psalm and, just as we often do, he bemoaned, he lamented, he regretted the fact of life’s brevity—life’s briefness. Moses stated that, even if we could live 1,000 years, it would only be like one day to God or like a watch in the night—four hours. As we grow older, we too look back over the years of our lives and lament over how quickly they’ve passed. In comparison to eternity, our time on earth is staggeringly short and we die ever so quickly. When Moses compared one day in heaven to 1,000 years on earth, he wasn’t speaking in absolute, conclusive, or final terms. His mention of a watch in the night proves that this wasn’t what he was saying. He was simply illustrating how shockingly brief our lives are compared to eternity, the timeless dimension in which God dwells. Our lifespan on earth is only a tiny speck on the timeline of eternity, a dot so small that it’s invisible to the naked eye. For a thousand years in God’s sight Are like yesterday when it is past, And like a watch in the night. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
Jeremiah 31:3 The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: "Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.
God will pour out His unfailing love and kindness on His people. Down through history, the LORD had always loved and drawn His people to Him. God promised to continue reaching out to His people in His unfailing love, people who were starving, diseased and stricken with terror. Thus, God was giving this message of love and hope for future reconciliation to a people who were destitute, helpless, and without hope. The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: "Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. God loves His people—believers. Amen!

John 8:34 Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.
Proof that we’re enslaved by sin is undeniable—we commit sin. The words “commits sin” is a continuous action. We continue to commit sin. It’s our habit, our practice to sin, and we can’t keep from sinning—therefore, we’re a slave to sin. The word slave means servant, or bond-slave. The bond-slave was purchased and bound to the person who bought him. The idea is that we’re bought by sin. When we sin, we’re giving ourselves over to sin. We become enslaved to sin—we’re a sinner forever in a condition, a state, a being of sin. Very simply, we’re unable to keep from sinning, no matter how hard we try. But there’s good news! We don’t have to be a slave to sin—we can be a slave to righteousness, but the choice is ours. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
Psalm 18:19 He also brought me out into a broad place; He delivered me because He delighted in me.
God’s own hands pulls you out of your distress—He literally pulls you out of a narrow, tight place and puts you down in a large, open place, a place of freedom and safety. But why would the Lord take such extreme action to rescue you? Only one reason—the Lord delighted in you. Such is the worth of an individual to Him. Scripture reveals a wonderful and comforting truth in this account— God delights in you! He loves and cares about you. You as an individual are vitally important to Him. Often in life we feel like we’re drowning in water that’s over our heads, drowning to things we can’t handle. But God never promises us—not one time—that He will spare us from deep water or problems in this life. He does however promise that we will never be alone in deep water—we will never drown in a sea of trouble. He will never desert us nor forsake us, nor will He ever give us more than we can bear. When our problems are too heavy or too large for us to handle, He will support us or hold us up. In His time, when He has accomplished His purpose for allowing us to face the trouble at hand, He will lift us up and deliver us from it. Until then, He will supply us with the grace we need to endure it. The Lord cares deeply about you. He will leave the ninety-nine to come to your aid and rescue you. He knows your voice, and He recognizes it when you cry out to Him. He also brought me out into a broad place; He delivered me because He delighted in me. And He will bring you out and deliver and delight in you. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all sins.
The righteous love and forgive wrongs. The wicked hate others and cause dissension.
Strife is usually stirred up between people through words. Someone says something that provokes a conflict with another individual or between others, and things escalate from there. Those who stir up discord are acting out of hatred, not love. Stir up means to awaken. This proverb speaks of dissension that would not have occurred had it not been aroused. People can stir up strife through something they say or by repeating something someone else said. There are any number of scenarios by which a person can arouse or provoke others to anger. But pay close attention to the clear message of this verse—those who create strife are displaying hatred.
People who display love let matters of potential conflict sleep—they don’t awaken them. Those who act in love do everything possible to keep peace. They strive to keep peace with others. They don’t bring up things that happened in the past or issues they know will create unnecessary conflict. They resolve matters promptly before they grow into a root of bitterness. People who truly love others forgive them when they do wrong. They strive to keep peace between others. God hates the person who sows discord among people, especially among believers. Many times, troublemakers who spread strife claim to be acting out of love, but this proverb reveals their true motive. Hatred stirs up strife. Love buries it and doesn’t dig it up again. Very simply, hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all sins. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
Psalm 31:15 My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, And from those who persecute me.
When you confess that the Lord is your God and that your future is in His hands, you can feel calm in the midst of fierce conflict, and you can confidently say, your times are in God’s hand. Having committed yourself fully into the Lord’s hands, you have chosen to rest in the Lord. You know that the outcome of whatever crisis you’re in is under God’s control. My times doesn’t refer to some special schedule, but to all the events and circumstances that surround you. You can say all the affairs and details of your life are in the Lord's hands. After reaffirming your trust in the Lord, petitioned God to deliver you from the hand of your enemies. While declaring that your life is ultimately in God’s hands, also acknowledged that you’re currently in the hand of your enemies. That is, at the moment, your enemies are controlling your destiny, and that you need God to overpower them, to exercise both His strength and His sovereignty to accomplish His divine purpose for your life, rather than the devious purposes of your enemies. Your times are in God’s hand, and He will deliver you from the hand of your enemies, and from those who persecute you. What a blessing! Amen!

Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
The first great invitation to this generation is—come to me. But who is to come? The weary and the burdened—the person who’s laboring and heavy laden, the person who’s exhausted and despairing, the person whos’ extremely tired and weighed down, the person who’s ready to stop and collapse. Some of the things that exhaust us are work, being overburdened with too much to do—worldliness and carnality, fleshly pleasure—sin and guilt and the power of both—money & material possessions and the unsatisfying spirit of both—fame and the emptiness of it—power and the loneliness of it—the rituals and traditions of religion—and rules and regulations. Not knowing the truth of life is one of the major causes of exhaustion. Searching for truth but never coming to the truth discourages, exasperates, exhausts, and burdens us. It causes us to whip ourselves in conscience, in ethics, integrity, morality, and scruples, leaving us empty, uncertain, and insecure about the future. But why should the weary and the heavy laden come to Christ? Very simply, Christ will give them rest. Christ will give rest to the struggling and despairing soul and to the empty and lonely soul—no matter how intense the struggle and despair or the emptiness and loneliness may be. No person has gone too far for Christ to inject His rest into him—if the person will only call upon Christ. But what are the conditions for receiving this rest? There’s only one condition—a person must simply come to Christ. The answer to rest isn’t searching after truth through religion, as important as religion is. The answer to rest isn’t positive thinking, as important as it is. The answer to rest isn’t seeking the counsel of true and reliable friends, as important as it is. The answer to rest is coming to Jesus Christ. Rest is available, but we have to come to Jesus Christ in order to receive the rest of God. This is why Jesus said, come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
Proverbs 25:21-22 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, And the LORD will reward you.
Be kind to your enemy. Contrary to what some people think and say, God laid down this basic principle of building human relationships in the Old Testament. Doing good to an enemy is a difficult and unnatural response. The best way to defeat an enemy is to smother him with kindness. If he has a need, meet his need—give him food when he’s hungry and water when he’s thirsty. Displaying compassion and kindness to an enemy is like heaping coals of fire on his head. This means that sometimes a person’s fire goes out and he needs to borrow some live coals to restart his fire. Giving a person coals in a pan to carry home on his head was a neighborly, kind act. It’s a reference to the red face of shame—the embarrassment of the enemy over his vicious actions. The coals of fire represent the pangs which are far better felt now as shame than later as punishment. The imagery of the burning coals represents pangs of conscience, more readily effected by kindness than by violence. These burning coals produce the sharp pain of sorrow through regret. This is one of God’s most difficult commands to obey. Yet, when it is obeyed, it has a powerful effect upon others. The difficulty of obeying this command and its great impact—is that the Lord will especially reward those who show Christlike kindness to their enemies. If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, And the LORD will reward you. Amen!

Isaiah 26:20-21 Come, my people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the [Lord's] wrath is past. 21 For behold, the Lord is coming out of His place [heaven] to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth also will disclose the blood shed upon her and will no longer cover her slain and conceal her guilt.
One of the significant works of God is to warn people to prepare for the coming day of wrath. As God’s people we need to prepare, and the LORD encourages us to enter our rooms and shut the doors. Most likely, this refers to finding our refuge in Him, for He is our only hope of security. No matter what the trial is or its potential threat, for believers, the LORD is our true refuge. In this present Scripture, the primary reference is to a day of future judgment and great tribulation that’s coming upon the earth, and as believers we must prepare ourselves for that day of terrifying judgment. Although the judgment will last for only a little while, we must secure ourselves, and Isaiah gave three reasons why believers must be prepared. 1st we must be prepared because the LORD is coming to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The implication is that believers must not be participating in the wicked behavior of unbelievers. 2nd believers must be prepared because the earth will no longer hide murderers, and will no longer conceal the sins of those who attempt to hide their wicked deeds. In that day no sin will be hidden from God, no matter how long it has been kept secret. The blazing purity of God’s holiness will expose all sin, whether major or minor. All believers who are committing secret sin will have their sin exposed. 3rd believers must be prepared because the LORD will punish those who oppose God and His people. In that day of God’s terrible judgment, the LORD’s sword—His Word, will kill all those who have opposed God and His people. We must heed the warning of the LORD—He is returning to judge the earth, and He has given us strong and sufficient warning to turn our lives around. Amen!
