We are a Soul Winning / Evangelistic Ministry
Recognizing that a single effort can accomplish much, but a corporate effort accomplishes much more. Our On-Line Church Ministry is about empowering the Body of Christ for the purpose of reaching our area and beyond with the message of the Gospel. We believe empowered Christians are motivated Christians. Please take some time to see what we have to offer, and if we be of service please drop us a line. Also, please pray for a Revival to break out across this great land. Only the Lord can fix this mess we are in. Blessings
Our On-Line Church promotes several platforms that will offer the many voices vying for their words to be heard, an audience. In an attempt to provide as much visibility as possible we will run articles that bring right now issues and concerns that affect the Body of Christ at large to bare. The Church is alive for just such a time as this. We have been strategically placed to shine our Light and be the salt God has called us to be. Additionally we will also offer a local flavor of news and events that affect our local folks in the Central Fla. area as well.
Old news is still good news as they say. Our news letter continues to provide a great opportunity for us to share not only what’s going on in our Ministry, but provide an outlet for top line news articles both local and national of which we feel are of vital importance to the Body of Christ and beyond. These news articles will be changed out and new articles added on a regular basis. Many of these articles are front page and are extremely important issues that could have a very serious impact on the Church. Please review these posts on our “page 2” location. Admittedly, who doesn’t like upbeat story lines and things that lift one up in spirit, but the truth is the truth still needs to be spoken. Many have lamented over the years, why didn’t someone tell us? The Church is in a very unique place in history right now, evil is rising and we need to be aware of the very devices the devil is using people to place on people so as to take action while still can.
Consider This Thought
We all have things we do everyday just like clockwork, routines. We get up in the morning, we get the coffee going, we indulge, maybe like me, over indulge. Next on the list is Devotional time, I usually read several, (I need all the help getting started I can find). Not to forget the Lord, time in prayer is essential. Next, I like to read the headline stories making the news. The newspaper seems to have gone by the way side as the black and white TV, none the less, I’m informed enough for now. Here’s a thought, LTWM would like very much to be a part of your day. We have Devotionals, these are not just a few lines, as they are quite thought provoking, and then the weekly Commentary. There is a lot of good insightful material at ones fingertips, not just via the PC, but from your cell phone, most anything but a flip phone works good. Please check us out, our Ministry offers a lot of good resource material to the elderly and shut-in folks that have become home bound or maybe do not have a regular Church to attend. If we can be of any service in providing materials for a particular resource need, just drop this Ministry an e-mail or give us a call.
We just celebrated Mother’s Day last month, now it’s time to honor the dads in our lives. It’s a lot about recognizing the important people in our lives. The time in which we live is hectic, never enough time to do all that needs to be done every day. It seems its rush here and rush there, where in the world has the year gone, it’s almost the middle of the year already. Even though we celebrate dad once a year, they/we/us, we are dads every day. We work hard, are faithful, to the Lord hopefully and to our families all the time. Yes, it is a time honored privilege to be a dad, a father, a leader, protector and provider and so much more.
When I was growing up in the forties and fifties, dad was the head of household, good, bad or otherwise, what he said was law. From what I remember, most of the boys I grew up with and myself included; learned a lot from our dads, and immolated them in many ways. They taught us just about everything we knew growing up; outside of school. Whether it was working on some building project or repairing the bike, dad was there. One of the things dad passed on to us as kids was his love to hunt and fish. So, with that my love for the woods and fishing came honestly, I inherited it from good ol’ dad. When I got old enough, I got my first car, (1951 Ford) and you guessed it, dad helped me fix it if needed. He always had his head under the hood with me, giving me pointers, thanks dad. A few more years down the road; I remember another time when dad was there; I was going off to the Army, it was during Viet Nam; dad and mom took me to the airport, dad was never very emotional, (he was a big guy) or at least he never let it show, I could see this one was getting to him, thanks dad for being there again. As I look back now, dad was weak in areas where he should have been strong, and strong in areas he should have been weak, actually; been there and done that myself, how about you?
Down the road of life and after some pot holes and pitfalls along the way, I found out that; though we may have only one dad, you may encounter several “father types”. That was the case with me anyway, as I had an encounter with the Lord, got saved and delivered from stupid; Amen, thank you Jesus. Yes, the Lord would put someone in my life that would mentor me in my new found faith walk. This beloved of God was more than fifty years my senior, a mighty man of God. I learned much under him. Yes; this is a father to honor in one’s life for sure. I may not have amounted to a hill of beans if not for the Lord using this man of God to lead me in the right direction. If he were still alive today you can be sure I would honor him on Father’s day. If the truth were known, I venture to say that many guys would admit to having a father figure in their lives that wasn’t their dad. This can be very beneficial, but not always.
If you are a dad, God Bless you; yes, you have found out it isn’t easy to raise children up now a days. It’s a far different world than when I was a kid; or even my own kids now. About the worst crime kids in my day did, was if they found a cigarette somewhere and smoking it behind the barn. Dads must be vigilant at all times, one of the biggest harms to our children that I see is the public school system. Not every school district yet, the rural areas are still fairly moderate, but inner city, big city, and please take note of their curriculum. I’m talking perversion, dissent, bashing of authority, identity reversal; these are seeds that if they come up will have a devastating effect upon our kid’s lives and society. I spent thirty three years in prison ministry, I got to see firsthand what unrestrained living and no morals produce; criminals. In Church you can expect to be taught accountability and responsibility, the power twins for a good life. And don’t forget the men who may never have had any children of their own; but are dads to multitudes of spiritual children none the less. God Bless you too. And that takes us the last point, God the Father, capital “F”.
We have seen it on TV, the news outlets of the world, statues being torn down; town square where monuments are being defaced and who knows what may be next. I don’t think these are the same folks who have removed the 10 Commandments from the Town Square, classrooms and courtrooms of the world, no this is a different group, an elected group of officials at that. I say it’s far time to put God back where He belongs, and where is that; 1st place in our world, our Country, our cities and towns and yes; in our lives as well. I ask you; can we relegate God to a lesser role, He’s The Creator; The Father of us all. Father’s Day is always on Sunday, let’s see; Church 1st on the list; honor our dad next; (if still alive) and our children sharing with us, I like it. Happy Father’s Day to all you dads.

This Month’s Commentary is; “No Taxation without Representation”.
I’m sure the title of this article is not new to most folks, especially in my age group. In a democratic society people are elected to office to represent the will of the people, that’s the plan anyway. But what happens when the elected leaders do as they please? When they take our tax money and do what they want, we have a problem. This month I share some thoughts along this line of; No Taxation without Representation. Christians have a right to voice their concerns about Government overreach, after-all, we all pay taxes, it should be a good read.
If you think the message has merit, please forward it to someone, they may be glad you did. These truths and insights should make for a good read (I hope). Hopefully you find it worth sharing with family and friends via the many social outlets. Blessings to all, from Thomas.
If more information is needed about these articles, please drop this Ministry an e-mail or call us on the number in our contact page.

A quick word on donations. At present this ministry does not have a 501 c 3 Tax Status. We are a “not for profit” Ministry. We operate solely on free will offerings, from folks “not” expecting a taxable write-off. We do provide a receipt to all givers. We hold to all the requirements of an authorized 501 c 3, but without the Government’s endorsement.
