Boones Creek Baptist Association Serving, Encouraging and Supporting Christs Churches

Bro. John Ryder-Director of Missions Angel Kane, Secretary Floyd & Gale Holbrook-Camp Manager Office (859) 744-0037 Fax (859) 744-1069 E-mail: Web-Site Printed Sept. 2012, Volume 45, issue 9 Deadline for next Issue: Oct.15, 2012

A Note to you, -Remember in prayer and please attend our Association Revivals in October. They are as follows: October 1-5 at Central Baptist Church in Winchester, pastors from the Mt. Sterling area will be preaching each night at 7PM. October 22-26 at Jeffersonville Baptist Church in Jeffersonville, pastors from the Irvine area will be preaching each night at 7PM. -The Semi-Annual meeting for the association is October 8 at Spears Mill Baptist Church in Paris. The first session in from 5-6Pm, Eat 6-7PM and final session starts at 7PM. Food For Thought: From the book, Men for Nations: "It was in 1904. ALL WALES WAS AFLAME. The nation had drifted far from God. Spiritual conditions were low indeed. Church attendance was poor, and sin abounded on every side, Suddenly, like an unexpected tornado, THE SPIRIT OF GOD swept over the land. The churches were filled to capacity; the meetings ran day and night. ... Prayer, testimony, and singing would sweep over the congregation in torrents, and hundreds of souls would surrender to God Indescribable scenes took place; nothing had ever come to Wales with such far-reaching results. Everywhere THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD was felt: in the street, in the stores, in the trains. Infidels were converted, drunkards, thieves, and gamblers were saved, and thousands were reclaimed to respectability. Confessions of awful sins were heard on every side. Old debts were paid. Theaters and saloons closed for lack of patronage. Police courts were idle. In five weeks twenty thousand conversions were recorded. Another writer states that within ninety days there were 150,000 conversions. The Welsh revival was a Divine visitation, in which God said, See what I can do without the things you are depending on? See what I can do with the simplest who are ready to fall in line and depend wholly upon Me? See what I can do in answer to praying people." Do you want a Revival? God gave the recipe in Ezekiel 14:6 Thus says the Lord GOD, Repent and turn away from your idols, and turn your faces away from all your abominations." God tells us three things we are to do to have revival: 1. Repent of our sins, 2. Turn away from our idols and 3. Turn our faces away from all our abominations. To Repent is to see our sins in the way God sees them, to understand how disgusting they are in His eyes and then turning from the sins and not continuing to commit them. Turning from the idols in our lives is recognizing things or people we have placed ahead of God and turning from them and placing God first in our life. Turning from all our abominations is to stop doing the things that God hates, despises and considers an abomination. The Bible lists many things that God hates and considers abominations. To name a few among them are: cheating others (Micah 6:10), a proud look and a lying tongue (Prov. 6:17), adultery and breaking vows (Ezek. 18:3-13), a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, (Prov. 6:18) one who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just (Prov. 17:15), and one who causes divisions among brethren (Prov. 6:19) We can have a revival if we are willing to pay the price for revival.

Yours in Christ,

Bro. John Ryder
