    2018-08-05 The DEADLY Game of GOSSIP
    Man, the game of Gossip was so much fun as kids. It was amazing how much a phrase would change as it is whispered and repeated about 10X. But even MORE amazing is how little fun is experienced when adults play it. Not only is it not fun, it is down right deadly. Gos-s-s-sip even seems to have the hiss of a snake in it. James tells us that our tongues are like a fire that was started in hell.
    That’s what is so amazing; it’s the last thing you’d expect to find in the church! But sadly Christians are every bit as addicted to gossip as anyone in the world. We do it so naturally. Yet Jesus warns us that we will give an account of every word. So what will it take to change? Recognition and admission that we are powerless on our own. We need Jesus and each other to ever overcome gossips powerful pull. I KNOW I WANT OUT of this. it’s no game! How about you?

    2018-08-01 HE is Not Horsing Around
    Hang on now, we are heading into the somewhat scary portions of Revelation. We must remind ourselves that this book is written in response to Jesus crying out to His Bride, The Church! He speaks out of love and concern. He speaks clearly and simply, just as He did when He walked and talked on this earth. Tonight’s message is found in Rev 6 as He begins peeling back the 7 seals (and they aren’t circus animals bouncing balls off their noses). These seals are what kept the Godly Plan of Salvation from being revealed until the proper time; His total and complete picture of bringing The Light into the darkness that the dEVIL and his angel spirits has been cast into as they were cast out of heaven. You see, we often forget what was here before the earth and mankind was created. Gen 1:1-2 say a lot with very few words. satan and his army were cast out of heaven into DARKNESS and chaos. In many ways, they were in a hell; the absence of GOD. But our Redemptive Lord, couldn’t leave it alone, so HE spoke LIGHT into that darkness even before the sun, moon, and stars; just like HE reached into our lives before we recognized our need. HE is letting His church in on the reality of evil and the limited power of the dEVIL on this earth in his territory. It should help us understand that this darkness affects us all. This isn’t heaven on earth. We are the presence of Heaven, On the earth, In the dEVIL’s territory. These horses reveal The Lord God coming into a war. Our victory isn’t an earthly utopia. It IS His peace in the midst of darkness and chaos.

    2018-07-18 Extremes _ Lion and Lamb
    Revelation is written to wake us up and shake us out of our perception of our personal walk with Christ. If you notice, no one in the 7 churches was scolded for being too holy, shamed for witnessing too much, cautioned about praying too much, or warned about going too deep in their worship. Our personal view of Christianity is often like our view on loaned money. If someone owes us; we know the amount, when it was borrowed, when it was to be repaid and feel like they are avoiding us. If we owe someone else; we are fine, they certainly understand if we are behind, they probably don’t need the money, and we avoid them. So how do we treat Christ; like we owe Him, or He still owes us? Does it seem like He’s avoiding you, or are you avoiding Him. Weird thing is that there’s no scolding, just an appeal from Him to our heart; THIS IS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU!

    2018-07-11 Revelation Decoder Glasses for the BIG Picture
    Tonight we seek to set the perspective and put on the “spectacles” for the right perspective of the spectacles found in chapters 4 through 22. The devil seems to have done a great job of taking the book that REVEALS and turning it into a book that CONCEALS. He has injected “fear and dread” where Christ sought to instill Hope and Boldness; “I give up” instead of the Fearlessness that will Never Give In! Revelation is a book of pictures and animation written to people that have never seen a movie and felt surround sound. I like the concept Matt Proctor shared as he compared Revelation to the first time someone watched Star Wars. So let’s settle in and put on the decoder glasses that let us see three things in vivid high definition: 1, God IS more GOD and HOLY than we think or often act. 2, We need to spell devil like “dEVIL” because he and the life-style he promotes are more EVIL and DESTRUCTIVE than we acknowledge. 3, Hell is real and hotter than we imagine.

Giving

Thank YOU for caring enough to wonder about giving. If you clicked on the tab that brought you here, you are either here by accident or because you have a noble heart and wonder how Branches handles the subject of giving.
 
Our church would not be here without the free will gifts of those that have freely received and freely given back. Ministry at a congregational level does cost, but we don’t charge admission or bill our recipients. Instead, we put our faith in the approach that Jesus Christ and our Father God took; they so loved the world that they gave first, without any promise of what they would get back. Their hope was that their gift would be received without cost, even though it cost them dearly. Many different people have sacrificed/invested their own money into the ministry of Branches with the hope that this church could be here for others like it was for them. These are not financially “well off” people, but everyday people that desired to forgo a variety of worldly things in order to give others a chance to know Christ in a very real way that makes sense without any financial strings attached.
 
In a step of faith, those of us that launched Branches of Christ at the end of 2000, prayed to The Lord about several things. Besides questioning Him if He even needed another church here, we asked that He would provide WITHOUT us passing an offering plate or without saying what several of us had heard our whole church life, “It’s time to TAKE UP our offering”. Knowing that we wanted to reach people that were skeptical about God/church, or had been burnt by churches, we felt that it might be refreshing to just let people give if they wanted to. So we have never passed an offering plate. We don’t have any endowments or trusts. We don’t have any Daddy Big Bucks that make up the difference, and we are not subsidized by anyone. Branches staff, building, furnishings, Live Streaming, and entire ministry are a result of people that made a choice to give to Jesus, by giving to His church, in order to give to people of the world.
 
If you really and freely want to give here are the ways that can be done. For those that attend, there are two mailbox slots built into the side walls of our sound booth. Some give as their initial part of worship as they come in the door; others, in gratitude as they are leaving. Several of our folks give weekly or bimonthly through their “bill-pay” that comes to us in the mail. By request, we have started providing the option of giving using your card and online as well. We are registered as a 501c3 non profit corporation in the state of Georgia and give annual giving statements at the end of the year to those that give and share with a way to identify them. There is no way for us to account for cash given without an envelope.
 
Again, thanks for wondering.
