" Joy Unspeakable, 1 Pet 1:6-7 "
  Mike Hughes

photos/2-520491966.jpg Joy is a blessing provided to the child of God. But we often confuse it with happiness. Brother Mike helps define the distinction between happiness and joy.

[In James 5:11, the word 'happy' is used, but it must be understood within the idea of a certain God-given characteristic of inner blessedness, (as in the Beatitudes).

In fact, The Greek word for "happiness," in the Classic writings, 'eudaimon' and 'eutuches', "lucky," never occur in the NT." (Spiros Zodhiates, Th.D.). The word 'eulogemene' (Strong's 2127) is,(See Luke 1:42, blessed), as in calling someone "blessed," or to speak well of. PBS]

But we do experience Joy, though mixed with sorrow; we have real, unspeakable inner joy; the Joy of the Lord Jesus Christ gives us strength!

And, we have, as brother Mike will point out, great expectations that one day the Christian hope will be realized in immortal glory when we shall experience the fullness of Joy.

Remembering Elder Mike Hughes who passed away December 10th, 2022.

" Testimony of Sovereign Grace "
  Tim De La Paz

photos/2-58618742.jpg The Personal Testimony of Elder Tim De la Paz. Recorded at Columbia Primitive Baptist Church. (Probably recorded somewhere between 2000-2003).

Listen as Brother Tim shares God's grace in bringing him out of natural and religious darkness to the light of truth!

From the Devout influence of Roman superstition...
To Doubt and dismay in a man's religion.

From an Uncle's religion to searching amid various denominations.

From Doctrinal Confusion to underground Communism...and hand-to-hand combat!

From Revolutionism to the Bible Baptist!

From False theories about Christ to THE Biblical Jesus Christ the Lord!

FROM HATE TO GRACE - FROM THE PHILLIPINES TO THE USA! FROM Arminianism to the Primitive Baptists.

What a blessing to hear about this testimony from God's servant.

Elder Tim De la Paz died and went to his eternal home on November 23rd, 2022.

" Friendship, Love and Time - Ecc 3, 10/14/18 "
  Daryl Hand

photos/2-205409596.jpg The Title of this sermon describes with exactness the character of Elder Daryl Hand. Noticeably manifest in his life, family, church and friends. His love for the fellowship of the Lord Jesus was a prominent feature of his messages. You'll easily hear from his own voice the love he had for his Savior.

Brother Daryl departed this life for his home in heaven on the 22nd of December.

The introduction of this sermons, with words, was typical of how he was personally with the church family & friends at meeting days. Because he understood the church was the sanctuary of God. That he considered a "precious thing."

This message drives home the point of God's sovereignty and government which has "no end." He presents this theme within the context of the here and now, the time God has afforded us to serve and worship Him.

Though we are living in a land of the shadow of death (he'll reference Isaiah 9:2,6) we are provided assurance that God is in charge! His Light shines in His people!

I hope today you may remember this man of God, a preacher of righteousness, by taking a little less than 20 minutes, to hear Elder Daryl Hand, and then ask yourself, "Are you using the time God has given you to be a faithful and sincere witness of HIS grace in your life?"
