Public Prayer Requests:

*** there are no public prayer requests this week ***


There is a river whose streams
make glad the city of our God
There is a river whose streams
make glad the city of our God

I will rejoice, I will rejoice
and be glad
I will rejoice, I will rejoice
and be glad

There is a fountain full of grace
and if flows from Emmanuel's veins
It came and it healed me, it came and refreshed me,
It came and it washed my sins away!


Take me into the Holy of Holies
take me in by the Blood of the Lamb
Take me into the Holy of Holies
take the coal, touch my lips, here I am

Take me past the outer courts
into the Holy Place
Past the brazen altar
Lord, I want to see your face
Pass me by the crowds of people
and the priests who sing your praise
I hunger and thirst for your righteousness
and it's only found one place


Jesus, name above all names
Beautiful Savior, glorious Lord.
Emmanuel, God is with us.
Blessed Redeemer, Living word.


For thou O Lord art high
above all the earth
Thou are exalted
far above all gods

And I exalt thee
I exalt thee
I exalt thee O Lord

For the next couple of weeks, Mariposa and I will be moving. I'm not planning to take off any time from work, so there's not going to be any time to write messages, unless the Lord otherwise directs. So today, I'd like for us to listen to a message preached by Rev. Jonathan Wegner, who is the senior pastor of Marlton Assembly of God. So let's listen with spiritual ears that are tuned to hear the voice of the Spirit of God. And here is Rev. Wegner with his message entitled "It's Called Heaven."

Listen to the audio to hear the message.

"It's Called Heaven"
Rev. Jonathan Wegner
Marlton Assembly of God

"This is a message to allow heaven to come into your heart..."

Thank you Lord for your word, and for speaking to us through your servant. I pray that all of us here and all of us listening at other times and places would be brought to that place in which we allow heaven to come into our hearts.

May we surrender today to your word, to your will, to your Lordship over every area of our lives.

You're invited today to get out of your seat right now and make your way to the front, and surrender every area of your life and of your heart to Jesus. Let's just spend some time seeking after God, and letting the words of this message sink in, as we allow our perspective to shift from someone who is overcome by this world to someone whose residency is in heaven.

If you'd like someone to talk or pray with you, feel free to instant message Mariposa or me. Whenever you need to leave, you're dismissed, and if you can stay until after this time at the altar, you're invited to make your way up the stairs into the room to your left where we'll all meet in a little while for a time of fellowship.

Come, and let's set our eyes upon heaven, and the Lamb who is calling us to set our sites upon home!
