  1. Romans 10:13...For whosoever shall call on the Name of The Lord shall be saved. The Plan Of Salvation...Romans 10:9 KJV...That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth The Lord Jesus, and believe in thine heart that God raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. In today's world, to be successful you have to have a plan for any and everything. There are plenty of self help books that will help you develop a plan that according to the author can not fail. Yet many who have bought the books and bought in to the author's way of thinking still don't have a plan to
  2. Psalm 119:129 KJV...Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them. 130...The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. We have witnessed the start of a new month, normally that may not a big deal but to me it is huge. There have been over 200,000 people who did not make it as far as I and my family have so I am thankful that God has favored me to still be among the land of the living. I am Thankful that God has given us His Word to teach us, lead us and assure us of our future. My life could have been over more times

    Sorry, thank you for moving it
  4. Oct. 1, 2020 Habakkuk 1...Oh Lord how long shall I cry and thou wilt not hear? The country has fallen to the depths of violent treatment of its citizens, oppressive measures against the poor are being used and the collapse of the legal system has the country in a mess. Men are in control and evil men at that, acting like you would expect without God's restraint. See if these words ring in your ears, iniquity, grivance, spoiling, violence, strife, contention, law is slacked, judgement never goes forth, wicked is all around the righteous and wrong judgement is everywhere

  6. Aug. 23, 2020 John 4:4 And he must needs go through Samaria KJV Samaria, the place (rumor has it) of things going on that you should not want to be a part of. Strange people live there, so we are told. They are different from the Jews, a mixed race (what would be called today half breeds). So much so that people of the Old Testament travelled out of their way, going around this city called Samaria adding time and miles to their trip just so they would not have to go the direct route. You can read about Samaria's unfortunate beginning as a city starting in 1st Kings cha
  7. Ephesians 6:12 - For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. KJV Jul. 2, 2020 Jeremiah 17:9...The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it. KJV Last month, The Holy Spirit dropped the word Righteous in my Spirit. I asked Him what is it you want me say about “Righteous”? He told me to look at what is going on in my peoples heart, it is disturbing because too many are falling away from my moral right.
  8. Thank God for those who create inspirational screen-savers, backgrounds and Bible verses to encourage us. They have a gift that blesses many including me with the powerful images they allow us to share. The one that has stayed with me for many years shows a man at the top of a cliff overlooking a landscape beneath him that to me is breathtaking. The Bible reference is from Psalm 25:4-5...Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. 5...Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God od my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. (KJV). The Holy Spirit has given me this t
  9. To every Mother, Mama, Ma, MeMe, MeMaw or term of endearment you are called, Happy Mother’s Day. To ladies who have not been able to have a child but have raised and imparted love to children Happy Mother’s Day To you. For those of us who’s Mother’s are in heaven, we remember them wiping tears from our eyes and thanking God for them.
  10. Isaiah 43:15-21 KJV... 15...I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King. 16 ...Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters. 17...Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow. 18...Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19...Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. 20...The beast of th
  11. Ambition is a wonderful thing. Without it, we would have no desire to get up everyday and go to our jobs. The problem with ambition is, it directs our pursuit of it to accomplishing what the world tells us we need to achieve in order to reach whatever the goal for us is. In that pursuit, we feel empty and unsatisfied. We have all kinds of guides from professionals in all fields to help guide us. Everyone wants to be the best they can be, searching for that recognition we seek after that let's us know "I am the number 1" at whatever it is I do. Seeking after this ambition is okay fo
  12. This post is going to be quite different from any I have done. Not just since I have been a part of this wonderful group of writers but since I have been posting messages going back many years. This one focus's strictly on God's Word found in 2nd Chronicles chapters 6 and 7. One of the most powerful prayer's ever is found in Chapter 6 with Solomon leading this prayer. God respond's to the prayer in chapter 7 when His Glory filled His House and was so strong, the preachers could not preach and the people fell face down to the ground in worship. Like many of you, I have been blessed
  13. 2nd Chronicles 20:15-18 and 20 (KJV) 15…And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's. 16… To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. 17…Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed
  14. Thank you so very much for your encouraging comments, I truly feel welcomed. The Lord told me is 2015 to start a blog. I told Him I have no idea what a blog is. He said that is okay, I will show you how to do it, I just want to know if you will. My answer was "YES" Lord...You can read what I have shared since 2015 at www.elderburgess.com
  15. My name is Tom currently living in Memphis, TN with my wife of 37 years. I am a sinner saved by God's amazing grace trying my best to fulfill a promise made to Him. The promise? After many years of living the good life (or so I thought) that included a serious cocaine addiction and doing just about everything possible to reach a higher level of insanity, I promised God if he spared my life I would spend my remaining days telling everyone how WONDERFUL & AMAZING GOD IS. A member of this community read a post and suggested I introduce myself to this wonderful group of writers. Thank God for
  16. All Glory to God and thank you for your comments. Let me know how to do what you suggested. I am new to this.
  17. Psalm 100 KJV...1...Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. 2...Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. 3...Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4...Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 5...For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. Church services today are quite different than they used to be. That does not mean God's presenc
  18. Hello Jared...Thank you for your comment and yes. you are correct.
  19. After escaping through the Red Sea, the Hebrews traveled through the wilderness and arrived at Sinai, God’s Holy Mountain. There they received the Ten Commandments, as well as instructions for building a Tabernacle as a center of worship. Through Israel’s experiences at Mount Sinai, we learn about the importance of obedience in our relationship with God. His laws help expose sin, and they give standards for our righteous living. The opening statement about this month’s message is Biblical truth, not opinion. In our country, we are Christians supposedly holding up the Blood Stained
  20. Dec. 3, 2019 Luke 2:12...And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, We have completed the day of Thanksgiving celebrated in our country with family friends and tables full of food. But there was much sorrow for Thanksgiving. Now we prepare ourselves for the single most important even in human history. The birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. His birth was foretold hundreds of years before His arrival in Isaiah 9:6...For unto to us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shou
  21. 1 Thessalonians 5:18...In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. KJV Have you noticed during your highway trips a huge cross appears where you might least expect it? It may be a single cross or a cross with the crown of thorns on the beam where Jesus hands were nailed. On interstate 40 East in Memphis, there are 3 crosses on Bellevue Baptist Church property that command your attention, standing tall for everyone to see whether you are traveling east or west. While driving, the crosses always appear when I am getting fatigued or w
