Quote of the month: “Many Christians live as if Adam’s fall had a greater effect upon humanity than Jesus’ redemption.”

Our on-line Bible College is now open. Yeah!!!!! Our classes can be audited or taken for credit. They can be studied individually or in a group setting. It is great material. I know the teacher and I whole-heartedly agree with all of his stuff. (Okay, I am the teacher for 8 of the courses.) Please check it out, even if you are not going to take any classes. Go to this link:  https://instituteforhopeandlife.com

We are also looking forward to some events that you may want to join in on:

 1) April 19, 20, and 21, I am joining with Wayne Anderson and Rich Carey, for a conference on Compassionate Capitalism, in Albany, New York. It will be hosted by Our Savior’s Lutheran ChurchThe Shepherd’s House and International Apostolic Ministries. For information go to: www.Iamtheway.org/capitalismconference

 2) The Annual Worldcast Conference will be July 19-21, Thursday evening, all-day Friday and all-day Saturday. This year Stacey Campbell and Martin Trench will be with us. Stacey (wife of Wesley Campbell) is the wild woman that comes with the presence of God. Martin Trench co-authored, Victorious Eschatology with me, although we do not plan on teaching that subject at this conference. Those of you who attended last year’s conference will remember Martin as the one with the Scottish accent. Worship will be led by Mike and Penny Proctor, along with the Yakima Foursquare worship team. Be sure to put it on your calendar.

Your Brother,

Harold Eberle

We Need To Fast.Isa 58:6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wnseedikcs, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?Isa 58:7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? After reading Isaiah 58, I went back and read the blog for Isaiah 36-41: Misunderstood.You wrote:I find that the lost world around us, misunderstands us as well. The don’t understand what we really believe in. They often think that our salvation somehow comes through a system of rituals and works rather than through our faith in Christ. This is partially because they don’t have the Spirit of God in them to guide and teach them: the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God. But, I think it is also the fault of believers. We often don’t express to the world around us the message of love and compassion that Christ offers freely to all who will receive Him.Maybe Isaiah 58:6-7 is why.Maybe there are times when instead of depriving our bodies of food, we should force our bodies to do right.I’m very thankful to all those in our church who have cooked meals for my daughter, and sacrificed their time to take her to chemo & radition.I believe that this is the kind of fast that God wants to see, and this is the kind of fast that the world needs to see Isa 58:8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.Isa 58:9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;Isa 58:10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:Isa 58:11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
