FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK

Pastor Brad Qualls         Co-Pastor Jonelle Hammack


     There is an old, old song entitled “Come Ye Thankful People Come”....I was remined of that when I was reading the account in Luke chapter 17 of the 10 Lepers. It tells us that as Jesus entered into a village, there were 10 men with leprosy.....and they all cried out to Jesus to have mercy on them! Jesus looked at them and told them to go and show themselves to the priests. As they went, the scripture says, they were all cleansed of their leprosy!
     But, only one, stopped, when he saw what had happened to his body, and turned around and came back to Jesus! He was shouting and praising God. The Word says that he fell at Jesus’ feet, thanking Him for what He had done.  . . . . READ MORE

“Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord,  who walks in His ways.”  Psalm 128:1 
This is the only kind of “fear” that the child of God should even consider. And this fear is simply a reference to reverencing and honoring the Lord!
As far as allowing fear to enter our hearts according to Paul, in  2 Timothy 1:7, we are told that God has NOT given us fear, as the world sees it, but He has given us Love, Power and a Sound Mind!  . . . . READ MORE

Psalm 62:5 says, “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.” Where is your expectation today? Have you been waiting for God to come through for you for a while now? Have you heard some little voices saying “It just is NOT working....you may as well throw up your hands and quit!” ? 
 Well let me encourage you today! Do NOT throw up your hands and quit! Keep trusting God! Keep waiting. Isaiah 40:31 says, “But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
And Psalm 40:1-3 says, “I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth . . . – READ MORE

The first Sunday of July, Pastor Brad gave us a 30-Day Challenge, to turn off the TV and let the world go! For those of you who have been faithful in taking this challenge, I am quite sure that you have seen a difference in your relationship with your Father.
 As a child of God, we are to walk in the Spirit, because Christ lives in us! We have been set free in Jesus! The natural man or the flesh has NO hold on us! But you can be born again, and feed on spiritual junk food so to speak, and definitely NOT grow strong in your walk with the Lord. How many times have we come home from work and just flopped down in front of the TV and just fed on the world until bedtime.....But God tells us in His Word . . .  READ MORE

The month of July, people talk and think about our Freedom. Oh, our nation is far from perfect, but we do still have some freedom in the place that we live. God has been so good to us and in Chronicles, He tells us that if His people who are called by His name will just humble themselves and pray and seek His face and turn from their wicked ways, then He will hear and forgive their sin and heal their land . . .

 From the Life Application Study Bible, Hebrews 11:1 says, “What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.” And in verse 6, we read, “So, you see, it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that there is a God and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him.”
 Faith is a combination of assurance and anticipation. It assures us that God is who He says He is and it causes us to anticipate or live in expectation that He will do what He says He will do! . . . READ MORE

There are so many things happening in the month of May, to honor all kinds of different people. There is Mother’s Day, where we have an opportunity to thank all the women that God has used to make a difference in our lives….whether it’s Mom, Grandma, Sister, Aunt or Teacher. Please remember to take the time to tell these women that you love them and you thank them for allowing God to bless your life. 
 Then there is Memorial Day, the day we remember all those who served our country, some even giving their lives so we can have the freedom that we have today. Too many times, we take these folks for granted and very seldom give them the recognition they . . . . READ MORE

The song by the Gaithers says, “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow: Because He lives, ALL fear is gone. Because I know He holds the future, And life is worth the living just because HE LIVES!”
 As we enter into April, we are facing the Easter season. Many sermons will be preached and lessons will be taught on the price that Jesus paid for our sins. We will offer testimonies and sing songs about the great sacrifice that He made for us when He died on the cross, thus taking our punishment upon Himself. And yet when it’s all said and done . . . .

Ephesians 3:17 tells us to be rooted and grounded in love! Then we can understand more clearly the love that He has for us!
Spring is right around the corner! People everywhere will be planting and gardening and experiencing New Life after the cold winter that made everything look lifeless and without hope of ever living again!

In the book of Joshua, we see God speaking to Joshua after the death of Moses and basically, He is telling him to be Strong and courageous because He is calling Joshua to carry on the work. Moses is dead, BUT the work that he had begun was still alive. He tells Joshua to be strong and confident so that God can use him. He instructs Joshua to be strong,  . . . . READ MORE

I felt that it was important to just re-cap on the messages we have received the first month of this brand new year! Actually, we will start with what Pastor Brad said December 31, 2018 . . . . He said that we need to hear what God says, and respond immediately! Every word of God is a New Beginning! Seek the peace of the city where God has called you to be – Be increased and Not diminished!
Then we were encouraged to remain in the secret place by putting our trust in the Lord! Our first love needs to always be Jesus! Nothing and no one can come before Him! Know His name . . . . Know who He is to you! When you need help, call on Jesus! He is always there for us and nothing can ever separate us from His love.  . . . READ MORE

Praise the Lord! We’ve made it to a brand New Year! First let me ask you….What did you do with 2018? Did you give Him first place in your life or did life’s distractions get in the way? Did you demonstrate His love to others along the way…..or did they just get in your way? Sometimes these questions are difficult for us to answer. They make us feel like well……I failed again! But . . . READ MORE

Following is….Pastor Brad’s Vision for Lighthouse Word Church.
God shared with me at the beginning of the year 2011 with these words….
“Make Ready a People Prepared for the Lord!”
He said to bring His Divine Order back into His house, so that His Glory could be manifested in His people…
A people moving forward, not sitting still or going backward.
My vision is that through God’s Word, we as a people will do as He said in His Word in Malachi 3:7….
“Return to Me and I will return to . . . . READ MORE

Psalm 103 gives us many reasons to sing out our praises to the Lord daily as David did. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, everyone’s attention is geared toward being thankful. But, really, our hearts should be filled with praise and thanksgiving toward our Lord every day of our lives! We all find it so easy to grumble and complain….actually, this has taken a lot of practice.  My Daddy always told me that Practice makes perfect!  I want to challenge each of us to start “Practicing” thanking and praising the Lord at the beginning of each day, as well as during the day! Rather than this being a “yearly” event, let’s allow it to become a daily event in our lives!  I think we will all be amazed at how much better our days will turn out. Every time you catch yourself beginning to grumble or complain, turn it into praise instead!

 Look at some of the things that David listed in Psalm 103 that we need to praise God for . . . READ MORE

I just felt led to share some of my daily thoughts from my personal morning devotions…feel free to make them your own if they speak to your heart! I pray God will bless you as you read these….
Lord, all I do today, I will do it heartily, as unto You! How thankful I am that I never face life alone…You are with me always and I can totally depend on You! O how I love You for this!
Thank You for loving me the . . . READ MORE

Matthew 6:33, from the Voice, says, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and then all these things will be given to you too.”

 If you read the verses before verse 33, you will see that it is referring to material and physical wealth. Jesus says that when we seek God and His kingdom and righteousness first, then all these things will be given to us as well. But God has to be #1!

 The word “seek” in this verse means to desire to know! Paul said it very well in Philippians 3:10 – “I want to know Him inside and out. I want to experience. . . . READ MORE
