Have a blessed day! Remember that Jesus loves you and we at Black Creek love you. We invite you to attend any of our services as you have opportunity. The world’s situation is horrible. Prophecy is being fulfilled each day which leads us to a personal question. Are you ready for the return of Jesus? Any day He may come with trumpet sounds. If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus, invite Him to be your Savior and Lord. We can help. Call if you need someone to pray with you or help you find who Jesus really is. You will be glad you did!

A FEW WORDS FROM DR. BILL
This winter has been a time for many people to have all kinds of sicknesses. A couple of weeks ago even I was struck with the stomach bug like many of you were. There is neither rhyme nor reason why this strikes so quickly but it does. Just know I was glad I was where I needed to be when it hit. Almost like a great earthquake, if you know what I mean. If you had it I know you know.
Sickness is dealt with in many ways in the Bible. Jesus touched many people and they were healed. Many were in his shadows, touched the hem of his garment, and many were not even nearby when he healed them. The amazing ingredient in this healing which God is in charge of is our active faith. Do we believe that God will actually heal us? Boy, was I ever praying for his healing touch and comfort the other week. God does heal in his own way and time. That is the catch for us-we must believe this.
In James 5:14-15 these words rang out to me and is clear each time I pray for another’s healing, It says, “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.” This is true!
Again, in John 4:46-54 a nobleman’s son was healed. In Luke 8:41-56, Jairus daughter was healed, and a woman who touched the hem of the robe of Jesus. Healing was happening and active then and it is today. I only ask you, do you believe? Not only in medicine, doctor’s or remedies, but do you truly believe in Jesus the healer and Savior of us all? I pray that you truly do. Many things change when people are healed.
Jesus healed people who were sick in mind, spirit, body, finances, waywardness, social ills, family problems, individual ailments, and the list can and does go on and on. We, being people of faith, believe Jesus for Salvation then we must believe that he is a Savior of healing.
He heals in his own time and in his own way. We must thank Jesus for healing in advance even before he heals. Just so you know, our faith makes all the difference in the world. Just because you are not healed right away does not mean you do not have faith. Jesus chooses to heal his way. Never give up on the healing. It will come, I assure you. And if it does not come the way we want, and God chooses to take those people or us to be with him just think what they are enjoying. Sights and sounds that we so long for. God does his best work when we are obedient and surrendered to him. Trust, try and prove Jesus.
What would happen if none of us were healed spiritually? We would all go to Hell. Bless God and thank God for his spiritual and physical healing that he bestows upon his people who hear and are obedient to him. Believe in his healing and see what happens…
As always, may God write the record of His love upon your hearts and lives through Christ Jesus our Lord. May God’s blessings of love, laughter, and eternal security be free to each of you.
