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).
Leviticus 18:4 You shall observe My judgments and keep My ordinances, to walk in them: I am the LORD your God.
God emphatically declares—I am the Lord your God. This stresses that God is the Lord your God. As the Lord, God has established and given certain laws and decrees that must be kept. As the Lord, He has the right to demand that His laws and decrees be kept, but by whom? By you the believer—He is your God. It is you—every believer—who is to keep His laws and decrees. God emphatically declares—I am the Lord your God, therefore you must obey my laws and decrees. You must live a moral life—you must be sexually pure. You must live a life of separation, a life that’s different from the immoral and sexually perverted people who surround you. You must stay away from the influence of the immoral and sexually perverted. You must not follow the immoral, perverted practices of the world, nor the immoral, perverted practices of anyone else. You must obey God's laws and follow His decrees because He is the Lord your God. This is what the Lord declares—You shall observe My judgments and keep My ordinances, to walk in them: I am the LORD your God. Very simply, obey God in every area of your life. Amen!

John 20:29 Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
There’s a great lesson in this for all of us. What is the lesson? To believe without having to see evidences and proof—to believe because of tenderness and warmth—to believe because of love and care and because of the need and nature of the human heart—to believe because of the need for morality and godly character—to believe because godly witnesses say so—to believe because of the inner witness of the heart—and to believe because of the outer witness of nature. Notice that Thomas stopped being obstinate and rebellious when he saw Jesus and after Jesus had rebuked him. Thomas was at fault, he had been faithless, and his unbelief was inexcusable. The men who had proclaimed the truth to him were not liars. Neither could all of them been deceived. Thomas had just refused to believe because he didn’t want to believe. He had acted intellectually superior and was about to lose his soul. The point is this, the person who believes without seeing demonstrates a strength of character—a tenderness and warmth of heart—a sensitivity to the witness of the Holy Spirit—and an awareness to the order and beauty of all the world. Therefore, the person who believes will be blessed with a very special joy, a joy unspeakable and full of glory. When you truly see what Jesus has done for you, or when you’re rebuked by the Spirit of Christ, you must stop your unbelief. You must turn to Christ, for the Lord's Spirit will not always strive with you. And remember this! Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed. Amen!

Psalm 36:5 Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
God’s mercy is limitless. Praise Him for His boundless mercy. Mercy is God’s steadfast love, His lovingkindness, His unmerited favor, and His eternal devotion to us. The Lord’s mercy is so vast that it can’t be contained within the boundaries of this earth. Therefore, it overflows into the sky throughout the universe—the heavens. God’s faithfulness is vast—it reaches to the clouds. God’s faithfulness is His dependability and His trustworthiness. Like a rock, the Lord is firm, steady, unchanging, and unmovable. He’s unfailingly loyal to us, and He will never let us down. Along with His mercy, God’s faithfulness not only fills this world, but also the skies. We can’t begin to fathom these immeasurable attributes of the Lord. They’re infinite, limitless, they’re beyond our comprehension. As The Message Bible so colorfully paraphrases, “God’s love is meteoric, his loyalty astronomic.” Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. Amen!

Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.
There’s the trait of humility or lowliness of mind, and a strong and active church will always have two problems to stick their ugly heads up—strife and empty glory. Some people are just going to strive or struggle with others. They’re not mature in the Lord, not yet, therefore, they give in to talking about differences—they’re jealous—or envious—they love flattery—and they have a desire for position and recognition—and they like opposition, and forming cliques. If they don’t get their way or what they want, they strive against the church or other members. The result is disunity and divisiveness, which to God, is one of the most terrible crimes within the church. Some people are going to seek glory within the church. But Scripture calls this vainglory, which means empty glory. Some people just want the attention, the recognition, the position, the flattery, the praise, the honor. They want people seeking their advice and counsel and opinion. They want to be on the major committees and acknowledged as a leader of the church. The spirit that must prevail in a strong church is that of humility or lowliness of mind. In fact, the only way a church can remain strong and be blessed by God is for its people to walk in a spirit of humility. So, when churches open back up, let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Amen!

1 John 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son.
God's witness is greater, far greater than the testimony of men. We believe the testimony of men, and we accept what they say as true. Spouses believe the word of one another. Children believe the word of parents and teachers. Businessmen believe the word of employers. Juries believe the testimony of witnesses. We all accept reports of the news media and the word of friends every day. This being said, how much greater is the witness of God. Men interpret facts, and they sometimes exaggerate and twist the facts. We’re never completely free of personal opinion and interests. And some men even lie and deceive when sharing with us. But not God. God never exaggerates or twists the facts—He never lies or deceives. What God says is always true, and it’s the plain and simple truth. Therefore, God's record about His Son should be believed. Every human being should believe God's record of His Son. What is that witness? Notice what the verse says—this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son. The witness is that Jesus Christ is God’s Son. Jesus Christ is the Son of God whom God sent into the world to save us. It’s this that we should believe. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son. Amen!

Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.
What a blessing! God has redeemed us and forgiven our sins, and redemption is one of the great words of the Bible. It conveys the idea of deliverance or setting us free by paying a ransom. For example, a prisoner of war or a kidnapped person is ransomed or redeemed, or a convicted criminal is freed from the penalty of death. In every case that person is powerless to free himself, because he can’t pay the penalty demanded to liberate himself from his situation or bondage. We have been captivated or kidnapped by the force of sin, and all people sin and we can’t help but sin. We’re sold under sin. Sin has captivated us. We have been captivated or kidnapped by the force of corruption and death, and all of creation is corrupt. Everything wastes away, decays, deteriorates, ages, and eventually dies. Corruption and death has captivated us. We have been captivated or kidnapped by the force of Satan. All unbelievers are under the power and influence of Satan, because he has blinded their minds to the gospel. Satan works in the children of disobedience. They’re captivated by him, and we need to be liberated, delivered, and set free, and we’re unable to liberate ourselves. We have no energy, no power, no ability to free ourselves. God has redeemed us by the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. God Himself has paid the ransom for our release—the ransom of a life for a life. God gave His own Son so that we might be set free. We have been redeemed through the blood of Jesus Christ. This is extremely important because when a person truly calls upon the Lord to save him, God buys him right out of the marketplace of this corruptible life. God redeems him once for all, He purchases and removes him from further sale. He’s redeemed eternally. God redeems us because of the riches of His grace. He loves us with an unbelievable love—a love so great that it spurs Him to do whatever is necessary to save us. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
Psalm 103:13-14 As a father pities his children, So the LORD pities those who fear Him.
For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.
The father pities his children that are weak in knowledge, and he teaches them, he pities them when they’re difficult, and he bears with them—he pities them when they’re sick, and he comforts them—he pities them when they’ve fallen, and he helps them up—he pities them when they have offended, and, upon their submission, he forgives them—he pities them when they’ve been wronged, and he rights them—thus the Lord pities those that fear Him. See why He pities us. He pities us because He considers the frailty of our bodies, and the foolishness of our souls, and how little we can do, and how little we can bear. God is a compassionate Father who knows His children and understands our weaknesses. He’s ever tender, loving, and caring toward all who genuinely fear and revere Him. As our Creator, God knows our exact nature. He understands that we are mere dust. Thus, as a father pities his children, So the LORD pities those who fear Him. For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
Jeremiah 32:17 'Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.
True prayer begins with worship and focuses on the greatness of God. No matter what our problems are, God is greater, and the more we see His greatness, the less threatening our problems will become. As believers, true prayer also involves rehearsing what God has done for us in the past and remembering how He kept His promises and met our needs. Nothing is too hard for God. God by His power and outstretched arm created the universe. Nothing is too hard for the LORD. He can do anything He chooses to do, and the creation of so vast a universe proves that God can do anything. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
Philippians 2:12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;
As believers, we’re to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. Work out means to work on to the finish, to completion, to perfection. It always means to complete the effort and the work begun, to accomplish it perfectly, to bring it to completion. The point is don’t go half-way in salvation. Don’t take bits and pieces when there’s a whole parcel. Don’t be satisfied with a little when you can have much. Go on, grow until salvation is completed in you. It’s your own salvation, and no friend, and no pastor can work it out for you. You alone must do it. Once God has saved you, you’re to get busy obeying God. You’re to take hold of the new life and salvation God has given you, and you’re to work on it until it’s completed and finished, that is, until God takes you home and perfects your salvation. Paul says that they had always obeyed God, not only when he was with them, but also when he was away. Now, as he was facing death, he wanted them more than ever to work out their salvation—to continue obeying God until their salvation was completed and perfected. You work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Life is not a bed of roses. It’s full of trials, pain, hurt, tragedy, disease, accident, loss, temptation, sin, evil, corruption, and death. Every human being experiences such things until he comes face to face with death. Life is sometimes beautiful and wonderful, but the reality is that, life is a journey of trials until the point of death. And no amount of denial or camouflage can hide or escape this fact. The only thing that can bring abundance of life is the absolute confidence that we will live eternally in a perfect world. Thus, we’re expected to work out our own salvation and to do it with fear and trembling. We’re to fear and tremble because of the trials and temptations of life, because anyone of them can throw us or cause us to buckle under. The world and its temptations and trials are strong and the flesh is weak. We can slip into sin and failure before we know it unless we are constantly working out our deliverance with fearing and trembling so we won’t fail. We’re to fear and tremble so we won’t disappoint the Lord. He has saved us, and He has gone to the ultimate limit in order to do it. He has demonstrated a perfect love for us by taking all our sins upon Himself and bearing our punishment for us. Therefore, when we sin and fail, it cuts His heart to no end. For His sake—to keep from hurting Him—we must work out our own salvation with fear and trembling for fear that we will cut God’s heart. We’re to fear and tremble because we’re to face the judgment seat of Christ. If we sin, we will be judged and judged severely. Though we may try to reason away the fact, our thoughts about the judgment of God don’t affect God's judgment one iota. Every one of us who sins and fails to work out our own salvation will be judged and suffer loss—great loss, and Scripture teaches nothing else. For this reason, the reason of judgment, we must work out our own salvation, and we must work it out with fear and trembling. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
Exodus 3:10 Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt."
Moses was to go as God's messenger to deliver God's people from their enslavement. This is the great call of Moses, the great commission that God gave to Moses. But it was God who was sending Moses. Moses wasn’t appointing himself to be God's spokesman. He had no authority to do such a thing. Moses was being appointed, chosen, sent, and commissioned by God Himself. God and God alone has the authority to call and commission people to represent Him. But, how many pulpits have been filled by people who weren’t truly called by God? People who looked upon the ministry only as a profession—only as a way to make some money or a decent living? How many people have chosen the ministry only because it seemed to be the best way to serve people and to make a commendable contribution to society? Moses' call and commission was to rescue people, to deliver them from their enslavement. When God calls us, He expects us to respond, He expects us to accept His call. God expects us to grasp His vision and compassion for people. God expects us to go forth as His messengers, to go and deliver people from their enslavement to the worldly ways of this earth. God expects us to lead sinners from sin to righteousness—from bondage to liberty—from death to life—from suffering to health—from hunger to fulness—from loneliness to friendship—from division to reconciliation—from hate to love—from war to peace, and from prejudice to acceptance. Grasp God’s vision—respond to His call. Amen! For sermons visit YouTube Evelyn Craighead and click subscribe.
1 Timothy 1:12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.
Jesus Christ puts the true minister in ministry, and this is a critical fact. It means that you can’t make yourself a minister nor can other people choose you to be a minister—not a true minister, not a minister who pleases Christ and can be blessed by Christ. Why? Because you can’t carry on a successful ministry in your own strength, not a ministry that truly reaches people for Christ and delivers them from sin, death, and the judgment to come. Only Christ can do that. This is the reason the minister must be enabled by Christ, he must minister in the strength and power of Christ. The person who’s in ministry because he chose the ministry as a profession or because people thought he would make a good minister is only serving a humanistic religion. And of course, a humanistic minister—a minister who ministers only in his human strength—does some good through social and emotional development. But he does much harm in that he leads people into a false security. How? He isn’t able to spiritually save a person—he isn’t able to save a single person—from sin, death, and the judgment to come. Only Christ Jesus can do that. Therefore, the only way a minister can be what he should be, is to be put in ministry by Christ Jesus, to be enabled, strengthened and empowered by Christ Jesus. Christ Jesus counts us trustworthy, and this is a most wonderful thought. Just think, Christ trust us to be faithful, and in the final analysis, He knows that we will be faithful to Him. This is one of the reasons He chooses and puts us in ministry. No matter how far down a minister falls, he should always remember that Christ Jesus counts him faithful. Christ knows that the minister of Christ will repent, and arise and begin to serve Him with renewed fervor. This is the reason Christ called the minister, because in the final analysis the minister will be faithful. And we know this, because of the forgiveness and power and faithfulness of Christ. Therefore, any minister who has fallen must arise, repent, and seek the forgiveness of Christ and begin to walk anew in the strength and power of Christ. Think about Paul, because it was an amazing thing to Paul, that he, the arch-persecutor, had been chosen as the missionary and the pioneer of Christ. It wasn’t only that Jesus Christ had forgiven him, it was that Christ had trusted him. Sometimes in human affairs we forgive a person who has committed some mistake or who has been guilty of some sin, but we make it very clear that his past makes it impossible for us to trust him again with any responsibility. But Christ had not only forgiven Paul, He had entrusted him with His work to do. The person who had been the persecutor of Christ had been made the ambassador of Christ. And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry. How awesome is that? Amen!
