Report of the Pastor Livingston First Church/Shiloh Church Rev. Dr. Craig A. Green, November 8th, 2017 “Anyone who intends to come with Me has to let Me lead.  You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am.  Don’t run from suffering; embrace it.  Follow me and I’ll show you how.  Self-help is no help at all.  […]

Fifty Shades of Black and White Why does God allow Satan to use homosexuality to be the wedge issue dividing the church in our day?  Two reasons.  First, because the Apostolic must be separated from the apostate (See Hebrews 12).  Second, no one will ever be able to stand before Christ and say that the […]

FAITHFUL THANKSGIVING Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.  And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.  (James 1:2) As we celebrate Thanksgiving, it seems right to remind ourselves […]

FAITHFUL Remnant AS many of you know, Randy Campbell Jr. and I had the privilege of attending the inaugural gathering of the Wesleyan Covenant Association (WCA) on October 7th in Chicago.

FAITH in the Family I suppose I was swayed by the commercials, but I did it anyway. I had my DNA tested by Ancestry.com. Tina did so as well. The results came back just today… Not surprisingly, my ethnic background is about half German, and about half from the area of Great Brittan/Scotland/Ireland. But there […]

My dear friend John West sent me this quotation, which both he and I find to be very helpful. “Suffering is not God’s desire for us, but it occurs in the process of life. Suffering is not given to teach us something, but through it we may learn. Suffering is not given to punish us, […]

Fragrant FAITH If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you. (Proverbs 25:21-22) Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath… “If your […]

But relative to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ…Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that Day will not come except the apostasy comes first {unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians comes} and the man of lawlessness is revealed… (2 Thessalonians 2:1a; […]
