MINISTRY

HERE AT THE CAFE WE DEAL WITH MANY COMPLEX ISSUES THAT CAN TEST THE FAITH OF THOSE FACING A TRYING FUTURE. MANY TIMES WE MUST LOOK TO THE PAST TO SEE THE FUTURE. MY FAVORITE PASTOR IS DR. CHARLES STANLEY OF IN TOUCH MINISTRIES. HE HELPS US HEAL AND GIVES US STRENGTH TO FACE WHAT GOD HAS PREPARED US FOR SERVICE. I WOULD BE REMISS NOT TO SHARE THESE AWESOME SERMONS WITH YOU. COME TO THE MINISTRY CHANNEL TO FIND REST AND SOLACE. YOU WILL LEAVE BETTER AND STRONGER LIKE I DID WHEN I TUNED IN TO DR. STANLEY.

It appears there has been a determined assault on the sermons of Dr. Charles Stanley. Virtually all of the You Tube videos have been removed from the internet. Has Satan as manifested in Google's military industrial complex seperated us from his teachings? I hope this wasn't the request on In Touch Ministries. Christ preached to the poor without charge. So must his followers. There is support to Ministry from those so blessed. The manna of the ministry is the tonic to the souls of God's people. It is good and proper to give to as many people as possible. If this was a money issue from the ministry, I am truly disappointed. We will try to restore some of the links. We will find other pertinent sermons to satiate your soul. Matthew Nolan seems to be on the same page as I. I am a pre-Constantine Christian. If we go back further, Jamesian.

    Anxiety: How to Respond

    By Dr. Charles Stanley

    Do you sometimes lie awake at night, fretting about a situation? Have you ever felt paralyzed by worry? Although everyone experiences moments of anxiety, we don't have to let fear control our lives. The Bible teaches us how to acquire peace in the midst of stressful circumstances.

    A. Closely guard your thought life.

    Anxiety is an emotion caused by fearful thoughts. Changing one's pattern of thinking generally causes apprehension to dissipate. When your thought life becomes negative or counterproductive, deliberately choose to set your mind on something else. According to Philippians 4:8, what should our focus be? What percentage of the time does your thinking measure up to this standard? In what areas does it fall short?

    There are a number of ways you can stop an unhealthy train of thought. For instance, you can praise the Lord and thank Him, turn to solving a different challenge, or find wholesome entertainment. But perhaps the best way is to meet God in prayer and focus on biblical truths.

    B. Renew your mind with Scripture.

    Many anxieties are rooted in worldly concerns. Refreshing your mind with biblical truth can help put such worries in perspective.

    Two scriptural principles in particular can bring us great peace: Our heavenly Father is sovereign and in control over all situations (Ps. 91). He lovingly provides for the needs of His children (Matt. 6:25-34).

    You can also look for verses regarding the specific anxieties that bother you the most. For instance, to counter an unhealthy fear of dying, remind yourself: "God will redeem my life from the grave; He will surely take me to Himself" (Ps. 49:15 NIV). In what area of your life do you feel most anxious? What specific scripture(s) could remind you of God's perspective on those worries?

    If no verses come to mind, simply ask the Lord to reveal appropriate ones during the next few weeks.

    C. Turn anxieties into prayers.

    A constructive way to redirect nervous energy is to turn our concerns over to the heavenly Father. You may want to get on your knees and talk out loud to God in the privacy of your home. Or you may find it productive to write your prayers in the form of letters to the Father.

    Anxieties may return at some point. If that happens, simply say, "Lord, I'm giving this worry back to You." Then deliberately refocus your thoughts. Prayer should be accompanied by thanksgiving (Phil. 4:6). What are some reasons for believers to be grateful? How can an attitude of thankfulness lower a person's anxiety level? If we make known our requests to God, what does Paul promise will happen (Phil. 4:7)? What do you think this would look like in your life?

    Sometime today, present your requests to the Lord according to Paul's instructions in Philippians 4:6. Even if your situation does not change, God will give you His supernatural peace.

    D. Diligently fulfill your responsibilities.

    When we fail to perform our duties, we sometimes end up with anxiety-causing situations. For example, a person who fails to maintain his car will typically end up with a malfunctioning vehicle.

    Those who neglect their responsibilities will face many unnecessary hardships in life. Let's look at this biblical principle as it relates to money. In Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus promises that the Father will provide for our basic needs. But Scripture also teaches that in most cases, believers have a role to play in meeting financial commitments (2 Thess. 3:10). According to the wisdom of Proverbs, what are a couple of reasons why some people become poor (Prov. 10:4; 28:19)? What are two reasons why the apostle Paul worked to earn a living (2 Thess. 3:7-9)?

    Now, let's apply the general principle that each believer must do his or her part to respond to problems. Is God prompting you to be a part of the solution regarding one of your concerns? If so, in what way? What do you think has prevented you from doing your part?

    Of course, taking responsibility doesn't guarantee a resolution to the problem. If the situation doesn't resolve, you can still find supernatural peace by applying the concepts in the rest of this study. Continue to be sensitive to the Lord's guidance regarding your role in finding a solution. If necessary, seek outside help from your pastor, a professional counselor, or a ministry designed to help people struggling with a similar difficulty.

    Conclusion: Anxiety can cripple us emotionally and hinder our productivity. Or it can drive us to prayer and prompt spiritual growth. Choose to respond to worry in a godly manner. Not only will the Lord be glorified, but you will be set free from anxiety's paralyzing grip.

  • Samson and Delilah

    Samson and Delilah is a 1949 American romantic religious epic film produced and directed by Cecil B. DeMille and released by Paramount Pictures. It depicts the biblical story of Samson, a strongman whose secret lies in his uncut hair, and his love for Delilah, the woman who seduces him, discovers his secret and then betrays him to the Philistines. It stars Hedy Lamarr and Victor Mature in the title roles, George Sanders as the Saran, Angela Lansbury as Semadar, and Henry Wilcoxon as Ahtur.


    Pre-production on the film began as early as 1935, but principal photography officially commenced in 1948. The screenplay, written by Jesse L. Lasky, Jr. and Fredric M. Frank, is based on the biblical Book of Judges and adapted from original film treatments by Harold Lamb and Vladimir Jabotinsky.


    Praised upon release for its Technicolor cinematography, lead performances, costumes, sets, and innovative special effects, the film was a box-office success. It was the highest-grossing film of 1950. Of its five Academy Award nominations, the film won two for Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design.

    Plot


    Samson, a Danite Hebrew placed under Nazirite vows from birth by his mother Hazelelponit, is engaged to a Philistine woman named Semadar. At their wedding feast, Samson loses a bet with his wedding guests because of Semadar and attacks thirty Philistines to strip them of their cloaks to pay his betting debt. When his deeds become known, Semadar and her father Tubal are killed; Samson becomes a hunted man and in his fury he begins fighting the Philistines. The Saran of Gaza imposes heavy taxes on the Danites, with the purpose of having Samson betrayed by his own people. The Saran's plan works, and frustrated Danites hand over Samson to the Philistines, much to the joy of Delilah, Semadar's younger sister. Samson is taken by Prince Ahtur, the military governor of the land of Dan, and a regiment of Philistine troops. En route back to Gaza, Ahtur decides to taunt Samson. Samson rips apart his chains and ropes and begins to combat the Philistines, toppling Ahtur's war chariot and using the jawbone of an ass to club the Philistine soldiers to death.


    News of the defeat of Ahtur at the hands of Samson reaches the Saran. The Saran ponders how to defeat Samson. Delilah comes up with the idea of seducing Samson, thus having him reveal the secret of his strength and then deliver him for punishment. Her plan works; she cuts his hair, which he feels gives him his strength. In order to fully neutralize him, Samson is blinded by his captors, put to slave work and is eventually brought to the temple of Dagon for the entertainment of the Philistines and of the Saran.


    However, Delilah has been in love with Samson ever since his engagement with Semadar, and his blindness and torture make her feel deep remorse over her betrayal. She initially had betrayed him because she wanted to avenge the deaths of her father and sister, which she thought were caused "because of Samson."


    Delilah later attends the public torture of Samson wielding a whip which he uses to be guided by her to the temple of Dagon's main support pillars. Once he stands between them, he tells Delilah to flee, but she remains, unseen by him, as he pushes the pillars apart. The pillars give way and the temple collapses, burying Samson, Delilah, and all the Philistines inside alive, including the court. In the end the temple lies in rubble, and Saul and Miriam, his two closest Danite Hebrew friends, are left to mourn Samson's passing.

    It is implied that the disaster has caused utter chaos among the Philistines, which are then forced to give up Israel to deal with their internal crisis.

  • Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled...

    Bridge over Troubled Water is the fifth and final studio album by American folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel, released in January 1970 on Columbia Records. Following the duo's soundtrack for The Graduate, Art Garfunkel took an acting role in the film Catch-22, while Paul Simon worked on the songs, writing all tracks except Felice and Boudleaux Bryant's "Bye Bye Love" (previously a hit for the Everly Brothers).

    With the help of producer Roy Halee, the album followed a similar musical pattern as their Bookends, partly abandoning their traditional style in favor of a more creative sound, combining rock, R&B, gospel, jazz, World music, pop and other genres. After filming Catch-22, Garfunkel returned and the duo recorded around 14 tracks, three of which were not featured in the album. The inclusion of a 12th track was long discussed but they eventually decided upon 11 songs. It was described as both their "most effortless record and their most ambitious."

    Bridge over Troubled Water was released on January 26, 1970 and several re-releases followed. The album was mixed and released in both stereo and quadraphonic. Columbia Records released a 40th Anniversary Edition on March 8, 2011, which includes two DVDs, including the politically themed TV special Songs of America (1969), the documentary The Harmony Game, additional liner notes and a booklet. Other reissues contain bonus tracks, such as the 2001 version, which covers the demo tapes of "Feuilles-O" and "Bridge over Troubled Water".

    Simon & Garfunkel, initially "Tom & Jerry", were already successful in the music industry. Their Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, the soundtrack album for Mike Nichols' film The Graduate and Bookends peaked at number three, two and one in the US Billboard 200, respectively, with the first and latter selling 3 million copies and 2 million copies in the United States alone. Art Garfunkel took the role of Captain Nately in another Nichols film, Catch-22, based on the novel of the same name. Initially Paul Simon was to play the character of Dunbar, but screenwriter Buck Henry felt the film was already crowded with characters and subsequently wrote Simon's part out. The unexpectedly long film production endangered the relationship between the duo; Garfunkel later stated in a 1990 interview with Paul Zollo on "Song Talk": "our way of working was for Paul to write while we recorded. So we'd be in the studio for the better part of two months working on the three or four songs that Paul had written, recording them, and when they were done, we'd knock off for a couple of months while Paul was working on the next group of three or four songs. Then we'd book time and be in the studio again for three or four months, recording those ... rather than wait for Paul to write the next bunch of songs, I went off and did this movie."

    "Hallelujah" is a song written by Canadian recording artist Leonard Cohen, originally released on his album Various Positions (1984). Achieving little initial success, the song found greater popular acclaim through a cover by John Cale, which inspired a cover by Jeff Buckley. Buckley's version is the most enduringly popular and critically acclaimed cover of the song to date. It is the subject of the book The Holy or the Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley & the Unlikely Ascent of "Hallelujah" (2012) by Alan Light. In a New York Times review of the book, Janet Maslin praises the book and the song, noting that "Cohen spent years struggling with his song 'Hallelujah.' He wrote perhaps as many as 80 verses before paring the song down."

    As the evil one worlders attempt to establish the kingdom of the Anti-Christ, you know what to say and you know who to say it to.

    "The Anchor Holds" - The Story Behind the Song

    The story behind the writing of this song begins in 1992 when my wife and I experienced what we now call our year of sorrows.

    My father died that year, we were facing health problems, I had come to a point of burnout from being in pastoral ministry for 19 years, and the church that I had helped plant was entering the first phases of what became a devastating split. I was also re-evaluating the focus of my calling. I was weary and discouraged.

    Then, in the summer of '92, my wife experienced her third miscarriage. We wept as we held the tiny 14-week fetus of our son in our hands. It truly felt as if our visions and dreams had "slipped right through like they were only grains of sand". It seemed as if the best years were over.

    I was given a sabbatical from pastoring for six months. During that time, my wife and I grieved and prayed. I also began to play the piano again for hours at a time, alone with God. During this time of sadness and uncertainty, the Holy Spirit gave me a song which I entitled "The Anchor Holds". As I would sing it, I began to experience God's comfort, encouragement and hope. Eventually, fresh vision came and I entered a new phase of the calling on my life.

    In the spring of 1993, my old friend Ray Boltz heard about the song during a time of sharing together after one of his concerts in Maine. A few months later, Ray called me and expressed interest in possibly recording it. I sent the song to him "in the rough" and told him that he was free to adapt it for his purposes. Ray reworked some of the lyrics, shortened it a bit, and added a musical bridge and recorded it for his "Allegiance" project. It was released for national airplay in November 1994.

    The response to this song has truly been overwhelming. I am so grateful that God can take our broken pieces and make something of value out of them. I am also thankful Ray Boltz who saw the potential of this song and utilized it for God's glory.

    Newsboys (sometimes stylized as newsboys) are a Christian pop rock band founded in 1985 in Mooloolaba, Queensland, Australia, by Peter Furler and George Perdikis. They have released 17 studio albums, 6 of which have been certified gold. Currently, the band consists of lead vocalist Michael Tait formerly of DC Talk, keyboardist and bassist Jeff Frankenstein, guitarist Jody Davis, and drummer and percussionist Duncan Phillips.

    The band was formed in Mooloolaba, Queensland in 1985 by two young men: Peter Furler and his school mate George Perdikis. Two other teens were added soon after: Furler's best friend, John James, and bassist Sean Taylor. The band's original name was The News, but once in the US they changed it to The Newsboys to avoid conflict with the US-based band Huey Lewis and the News. The band came to the United States in late 1987 after getting signed with Refuge Communications and released the album Read All About It in 1988 in the United States.

    Buck is a 2011 American documentary film directed by Cindy Meehl. The film focuses on the life, career, and philosophy of the real-life "horse whisperer" Buck Brannaman.


    Buck explores the life of Buck Brannaman from his childhood living with an abusive father to his successful approach to handling and training horses. Brannaman worked on the Robert Redford film The Horse Whisperer as the lead equine consultant. He teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment.


    The documentary follows Brannaman to several stops on his normal, 40-week-per-year circuit of ranches where he gives clinics on "natural horsemanship". He spends most of the year on the road, apart from his wife and daughters. Along the way, we learn about his childhood including his celebrity as a child performer of rope tricks, the physical abuse that he and his brother endured at the hands of their father, how a football coach helped to free him from his father after seeing welts on Buck's back and legs, and life with the Shirleys, his foster parents.

    It takes a lot to impress me in film and books. This impresses me. From a childhood of severe abuse to the top horse trainer on the planet a story of love and respect that will make you a better human being at no matter what you do. It will be a companion story to Dr. Stanley's Brokeness lecture. With our faith and God's grace we will make a better world one person and one horse at a time. An inspiration let me assure you.

    God's Pathway of Brokenness

    Many believers fail to consistently rely upon the Lord. Their independence often manifests itself in various ways - self-reliance, self-righteousness, self-centeredness, or some other sinful attitude. It's also possible that such people might seem outwardly godly, while remaining inwardly rebellious against the Spirit. Unless we come to the end of ourselves and learn to allow Him to work through us, we will never reach our full potential in Christ.
