Summit News!


Hey, Summit Family, this past Sunday I sang a new song to me. Its message was “God’s GRACE is GREATER than ALL MY SIN!” I started hearing the song just recently on the Sirius Satellite Radio network, on the station called “ENLIGHTEN”. It’s, pretty much, a Southern Gospel Radio Station. The strong REASSURING MESSAGE of the song is very INSPIRING! The words really bless me! Look them up and PONDER its wonderful PROMISE of forgiveness!

In Zechariah 3:2, we find recorded these words, “And the Lord said to Satan, The Lord REBUKE YOU, Satan! The Lord Who has chosen Jerusalem REBUKE YOU! Is this NOT a brand PLUCKED from the fire?”

Bullying is an EPIDEMIC today, including CYBER BULLYING. The GOAL of a BULLY is to make the OTHER PERSON feel BADLY about THEMSELVES, ASHAMED, HUMILIATED, and ALONE. Bullies take their CUES from Satan, the ULTIMATE BULLY! In Zechariah 3, the DEVIL RIDICULED Israel’s high priest, JOSHUA, and pointed out His FILTHY SINS and ministerial FAILURES. But The Lord REBUKED Satan. And GOD REMOVED Joshua’s filthy garments and gave him RICH ROBES and a CLEAN TURBAN. The Lord TREATED HIM as a BRAND PLUCKED from the FIRE.

The Bible teaches that our GREAT HIGH PRIEST, Jesus, ALWAYS LIVES to make INTERSESSION for US. We all go through PERIODS of GUILT, SHAME, and SELF-REPROACH. But the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST washes away EVERY STAIN, forgives EVERY SIN, redeems every MISTAKE, and SILENCES the TAUNTS of our DIABOLICAL BULLY.

Jesus reminds us in JOHN 10:9-10 that “I AM THE DOOR. If ANYONE ENTERS by ME, he will be SAVED, and will GO IN AND OUT and FIND PASTURE. The THIEF does not COME EXCEPT TO STEAL, and to KILL, and to DESTROY. I have COME that they MAY HAVE LIFE, and that they may HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.” We are SAFE in His PROTECTIVE ARMS.

Herbert Lockyer, in ALL THE DIVINE NAMES and TITLES in The Bible writes, “The LORD JESUS pleads for US in HEAVEN, and so ADVOCATES OUR CAUSE before the Throne Of God AGAINST HIM who is the ACCUSER of THE BRETHREN.”


This next Sunday we will continue our study of The 10 Commandments as we look at #4; “REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY TO KEEP IT HOLY”!

Also, this coming Sunday, AUGUST 18TH, we will have a number of BAPTISMS taking place “IN OBEDIENCE TO CHRIST.” Immersion is the BIBLICAL FORM of baptism taught in THE SCRIPTURES, and performed on REPENTANT BELIEVERS in Jesus Christ, as Savior. If you’d like to be IMMERSED, please call the church office (316-676-3004) to make arrangements. If you’d like to TALK WITH ME, personally, about this, LEAVE YOUR NUMBER and I’ll CALL YOU. I’ll be looking for you at 10:00 AM, and never forget HOW MUCH I love you! Have a blessed week, Bro. Joe
