Letters

Greetings, I would like to show my appreciation to my brothers and sisters behind the scene at the D.O.C. who are truly the wonder workers that keep the whole D.O.C. family together. To editor in chief, and all personnel who help out with vital things around the office, I just want to say thank you for your personal time and your unshakable devotion to the newsletter and the entire D.O.C. family. May God bless you all. Very Cordially, Kendall Burton

 

Brothers & sisters of our Lord Jesus Christ, this morning, I turned on my TV & saw 58 people died in a mass shooting in Las Vegas. We have to remember the devil runs wild on this earth. We have to remember when we are tempted, we have to put our trust & faith & pray to our Lord for the power & strength to fight the evil one. The Lord gave us power to be the best we can be. We have to keep our Lord Jesus Christ in our hearts. We can fight the evil one by praying, reading God’s Word & rebuking the devil. Until next time, remember – Jesus loves us all! Roger Lane

 

D.O.C. Brothers and Sisters, I pray for you and your families. that all is well with you. Good news, God is still on the throne, and Jesus will return for all of us. In Haggai 1:4, “Why are you living in luxurious homes while my house lies in ruin?” Then verse 5, “Look what’s happening to you now”… showing the results of thinking of themselves/ourselves and not putting God first.” I believe this; God wants to and does bless us beyond measure, but when we, as His temple, lie in ruin by sin and do not put Him first, we miss the blessings because we are living out our own lives. The prophet Haggai brings to light how I do not put God first in everything I do, and in verse 8, God is instructing me/us to rebuild His temple, which is us, and put Him first. It’s a reminder of the most important commandment: to love the Lord with all your heart, mind, and soul. The book of Haggai is speaking of a physical structure, but the Holy Spirit indwells inside us and we are His temple. That understanding opened my heart and mind – I do not put Him first. So I would like to encourage everyone to reread Haggai, and examine ourselves and truly lean on the Lord and put Him first; we are His temple, not our own. Donald Lilly
