A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR HOLMES WILLIAMS TO NEW CONVERTS
Welcome into the Family of God!
In John’s Gospel Chapter 10 and verse 10, Jesus mentioned that the thief (that is the devil), wishes to steal, to kill and to destroy. The Apostle Peter warns us, “. . . be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).
We have been praying that you cherish your personal relationship with Christ and allow NOTHING to destroy it. Do not allow ANYONE to discourage you from serving Christ. Eternity is real and you will spend it either in heaven or hell—that is why you must guard your experience to ensure your place in heaven. The assurance of salvation is the most important thing we can have in lie. To know that you know, that you know that you are saved, is more important than fame or riches.
The devil knows that you have changed sides and he will use anything or anyone to discourage you and to cause you to turn back. Many times he comes with accusations and condemnation, but you must never forget that moment when you came to Christ and asked Him to come into your heart. Jesus said, “. . . him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” John 6:37.
That means YOU, and Jesus said He has received you. Let God’s Word settle any argument. I want to help you to be rid of all doubt and condemnation, and ensure that you are able to say like the Apostle Paul, “. . . I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.” 2 Timothy 1:12.
I am inviting you to attend a special Discipleship Class every Saturday at 5:00 p.m. in the Prayer Room. This class is important to your spiritual growth and is designed to establish and strengthen your faith and relationship with the Lord . . . so do not allow anything or anyone to hinder you from attending class.
These classes usually run for approximately 3 months. After this, glorious opportunity is given for you to follow the Lord Jesus Christ in the waters of baptism. If you so desire, there is great opportunity for you to then join our assembly.
Please do not hesitate to call us at the office any weekday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. if you have any questions or special needs for which you need prayer, you can also reach us on our 24hr LIFE LINE anytime you or your family need urgent prayer. 1-246-429-LIFE (5433).
