Hungry for Meat

Dear family of our Lord Jesus Christ and faithful Daily Cup readers,
Shonda SavageGood Friday to you. Thank you for joining us here on the “Cup.” I’m Shonda Savagean inspirational writer at and I’m filling in for Dewey today.
We thank God for what HE is doing and working through this ministry and we thank you, our faithful readers and supporters of the ministry for taking part of what God is doing here at FGGAM.
Last week, my friend, Dr. Michelle Bengtson and I attended a Be in HealthOvercomers Conference by Dr. Henry Wright in Dallas, Texas. I tell you that it felt like the Lord opened up the fire hydrant and we received so much more information about God’s word than we can literally process.

Shonda Savage and Dr. Michelle Bengtson

I was so thankful that Dr. Wright emphasized to us not to worry about not remembering everything. He assured us that the Holy Spirit will remind us of what we need to know when we need to know it. Praise God!
Also, Dr. Wright informed us that the teaching we were receiving was meaty.

“For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” Hebrews 5:13-14 KJV

Sometimes during the conference, I felt so full of the “strong meat” that we were being fed, I was uncertain I could take any more. But thank God, He helped me digest what I needed. And the good news is, if we overeat on God’s word, there is never indigestion!
Eat Spiritual Meat
This conference helped me realize that not everyone is ready for the “strong meat,” but are still drinking the milk. However, babies grow and want some real food.
Baby on milk
Have you graduated from milk to solid food yet spiritually speaking?
If we don’t give our bodies the nutrition it needs, we become malnourished weakening our bodies. It’s the same for our spiritual beings as well. If we don’t feed ourselves some solid food, then we are weak.
How can we eat meat or solid food? Here’s a couple of ways I can think of. . .
Regular church attendance is a good start. It is good to hear the word of God, for faith comes by hearing. But in order to grow more, we need to participate in small group studies. I encourage you to find a small group study within your church or community. In small group studies, that is where we can read the Scriptures and discuss it with one another. The discussion helps solidify the Word in our hearts and minds.
study the Bible
Also, reading the Bible at home. Finding a time to read the Bible alone without any disturbances helps us to mediate on what the Lord is saying. He wants to speak to each of us individually, and He speaks to us through His written word. Also, reading with our spouses and our children and discussing it with one another.
Attending small group Bible studies and reading the Bible in our homes are two ways that we can begin to eat the solid food of God’s word.
Come on, aren’t you hungry for the meat of God’s word? How do you eat more spiritual solid foods?

New Mexico Gov. Martinez MIA

Dear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
We send our love to you all!
We will continue to be watchmen on the wall here at FGGAM! For God’s Glory Alone! Very sad news here in New Mexico……….
New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez MIA: It’s a very sad day in New Mexico, when a Republican Governor who says she is pro-life does not show for the once a year pro-life rally at the State Capital, but will show up for every photo opportunity to open any kind of business or new highway project, what is Governor Martinez afraid of? I am tired of reading comments that Martinez is a “great Governor”, what makes her great? Skipping a rally that is held to encourage support to stop the killing of babies? I say again, what is ther Governor afraid of?
abortionThis is the same Governor who was being interview by KDAZ AM730’s Dan Rosecrans by phone this past summer and Dan asked the Governor about same-sex marriage and she put down the phone receiver and stopped talking and one of her aides came on the phone and said same-sex marriage was not on the docket to be talked about!
WOW! What is she afraid of?
That is like when the Governor turned her back on babies when she refused to back the late-term abortion ban ordinance in Albuquerque, she said it was a city issue not a state issue. I am sorry Governor but it is a GOD issue. It’s time to stop saying the Governor of New Mexico is pro-life.

The World We Live In

Dear family of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
We are still rebuilding the Daily CUP and data base, sorry for delay……please pray for us!
This is the world we live in………Dewey Preaching
We love you all……..
I pray that you will let this soak in………………..
There is nothing more thrilling than pursing God and having a personal relationship with our Father. I was told years ago by a Pastor, “Dewey you are A man after God’s own heart.” He said you are like David. I really went to work and read all I could about David! Have you studied the life of David? Perhaps no man has ever went after God’s heart like King David. Many of the psalms are the results of his quietly waiting and reflecting upon God. As a “man after God’s own heart,” David first had to know the mind and heart of God. To a large extent, David accomplished this through the persistent practice of godly meditation. A vivid illustration can be found in 2 Samuel 7. In this chapter we see that David has reached a place of rest in his reign. His war campaigns are no longer on the drawing board, and he is now contemplating building a temple for the Lord. The prophet Nathan gives an encouraging message of God’s faithfulness to David and the Lord’s plan for constructing the temple. David’s response to Nathan’s communique is found in 2 Samuel 7:18 , “Then King David went in and sat before the Lord; and he said: “Who am I, O Lord God? And what is my house, that You have brought me this far?” Notice the phrase, David “sat before the Lord.” Now he wasn’t sitting in a chair as we would. He was kneeling and sitting back on his heels, listening, and talking to the Lord.
Let us do the same each day.
Pray over the words found in 2 Samuel 7:18″ “Who am I, O Lord God?”
We are to start our day with God and meditate……..
Meditation is the activity of calling to mind, and thinking over, and dwelling on, and applying to oneself, the various things that one knows about the works and ways and purposes and promises of God. It is an activity of holy thought, consciously performed in the presence of God, under the eye of God, by the help of God, as a means of communion with God. Its purpose is to clear one’s mental and spiritual vision of God, and to let His truth make its full and proper impact on one’s mind and heart. It is a matter of talking to oneself about God and oneself; it is, indeed, often a matter of arguing with oneself, reasoning oneself out of moods of doubt and unbelief into a clear apprehension of God’s power and grace. Its effect is to ever humble us as we contemplate God’s greatness and glory, and our own littleness and sinfulness, and to encourage and reassure us–“comfort” us in the old, strong Bible sense of the word–as we contemplate the unsearchable riches of divine mercy displayed in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Please listen to our latest radio program with Dr. Michelle Bengtson, such a strong women of God, she is a neuropsychologist, she shares on DEPRESSION:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Richard Griffin of Albuquerque a strong supporter of FGGAM, Richard calls FGGAM a “difference maker in our community”…..Would you and yours pray about becoming a financial supporter of FGGAM, giving has really slowed down in December and into Jan………We need your help today to continue all of our free services, please. We are running into extra expenses like rebuilding the Daily CUP, a new data base, a new delivery system and other costs that we have encountered here early in 2015. The implosion of the Daily CUP and data base was of course an unexpected event. I pray you all see value in what FGGAM does for God’s Glory Alone!

The State of the Union is Not Very Good, America Pretends…… By Pastor Dewey

and this…………

Abortion Harms Women & Our Nation ! By Laura Rosecrans for FGGAM

I want to share with you two inspirational posts that have been a big hit at FGGAM! The first is by Karen Rowe and Randal Thom, the second by Shari Johnson………..

Speaking to a friend this morning; and Randal Thom shares this: “Give it all to God …;” KJLY (Kinship Christian Radio program) says, “It is all God’s anyway!” Scripture says, “Every good and perfect gift comes from God.”

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change (James 1:17 ESV).

Now, God is our supply; and HE gives us all we need!
Why hold back part of who we are; or part of what we have been given from God???

Randal said, “Healing comes when we Stop trying to keep some of the broken pieces in a back closet; God can’t put the vase back together if we hold those pieces back from him. What good is a puzzle if you are missing 23 pieces … just makes for an incomplete picture.”

Is there a small part of you that you are still trusting in something else more than you trust God to handle?

Randal stated this truth: Jesus will never leave us or forsake us. But IF we don’t understand this; it is not UNTIL we come to understand this, THAT we will find Jesus … when we finally seek him with ALL OUR HEART.. We can’t keep half our heart back with the devil; and allow temptations to over power us!

WE can trust God to surrender it all to HIM — THEN, we can resist the devil and he will flee.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7 ESV).”

Jesus loves you! God is the God of an open hand! God loves you!

It is easy to honor the basic commandments, but it is the sacrifice of self thoughts in order to honor Jesus that is hard … but not impossible; we have a helper in the Holy Spirit to carry that blessed cross; and enable us to make choices that fit into God’s dreams for us. Trust Him and read His Word.

Love in Christ,
Randal’s testimony is both beautiful in the love and devotion of God; and powerful in the purpose of testimony; IN THAT THIS IS YOUR GOD TOO!!!
In Randal Thom’s words this morning:

My light bulb moment came full and clear when I was on my knees crying out to God asking why he took momma home when he did, cause I was so close to getting out. He spoke so clear. Randal, I had to take your mom home now when I had you in a safe place, cause if you were out you would have done as you always do, run to the devil, now you will have the chance to lean to me for the comfort and love you deserve.

So then I had 43 more days to feel the love of Jesus. And yes; I wish so often that I could have had one last time to hug momma, but I then remember that I will have many more times to hug her when we met in heaven. That had I had one last hug, I probably would have only had that one hug, cause the devil would have taken me down fully.

Another part of that testimony: KJLY had just dedicated the song, “I can only imagine” to me. That is why I ended up on my knees crying out.
I had sent them a letter the week before telling them that I needed prayer for my momma; that I was afraid I would not be released from prison before she passed.

God’s song to you Randal …

Over the last 8 months of my incarceration, God kept putting Jeremiah 29 11-15 on my daily devotions. and then when I was learning what God love was, the word ALL in verse 13 became the action part of that whole verse. And what a difference; that is where my words from earlier come from.

Jeremiah 29 11-15
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”

15 You may say, “The Lord has raised up prophets for us in Babylon,”

Randal’s mom is with Jesus; and my dad; and life is a vapor here and now … It really matters how we do our job here and now … that is the purpose of our life on earth.
Randal replied: Absolutely; yes. It is why we need to give ALL OF OUR HEARTS for then that is when we seek him we will find him when we give ALL TO HIM.
OH shoot yea, I have days where I take back part of my ALL, but I feel it quick and say, “oh no devil, you ain’t getting that.” And, realize that my ALL HAS TO BE WITH JESUS..
Human Nature Verses Spiritual nature; and we have overcome already in Jesus, YET, what Randal has told to us, is living proof that we have to give our all to God daily. We belong to JESUS!

How about you? Do you know you belong to Jesus? Would you like to be certain? Pray to God and tell God that you believe in His Son and believe Jesus has claimed you as His own. Ask Jesus to be your Lord.

God bless you!

Love in Christ,
Karen Rowe
Hope in Today Ministries (Ministries supporting Ministries) (Sounding the call of God’s Love), by Karen Rowe
I hope this is a blessing to you and someone you know! Our prayers are with you in Jesus the Christ, who is the Son of the Living God! God knows all things; including your heart!
God loves you … Will you trust God with your all in all? We love you too in Christ JESUS! And, Amen.
chick fiddler2 Kings 3:15
But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him.
One thing that will almost assuredly bring joy to my soul is music. And stringed music that much more; it’s the basics that I love. So my “But Now” verse for today was literally music to my ear when I see the Lord setting the stage for victory through a bluegrasser! (Yes I know that’s a stretch, but a girl can dream can’t she?) Although it was harp that was played, it was still the foundation for the fiddle that would come along in the 16th century. And it matters not to me what particular instrument but rather the fact that God used it and my favorite thing in the world (the Word of God) together.
To set the stage for you in this text, it is the story of two Kings, normally at odds with one another. But this day they had formed an allegiance against a common enemy. King Jehoram of Israel met with Jehoshaphat king of Judah and together they met with the king of Edom and made this agreement in 2 Kings 3:7-8
And he went and sent to Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, saying, The king of Moab hath rebelled against me: wilt thou go with me against Moab to battle? And he said, I will go up: I am as thou art, my people as thy people, and my horses as thy horses. And he said, Which way shall we go up? And he answered, The way through the wilderness of Edom.
But as they traveled, 7 days into the journey they ran out of water and then began to wonder if it was God’s will at all for them to go to this battle, and whether or not He had set them up to get them killed!
10 And the king of Israel said, Alas! that the Lord hath called these three kings together, to deliver them into the hand of Moab!
Ha! can I relate to that one. Halfway down any road in life I’ve asked myself that question, so you’ll find me throwing no stones at the kings. But here they are at the crossroad of battling Moab or tuckin’ their tales and turning home and they decide to seek the wisdom of God, which would come through, at that time, a man of God named Elisha. They’re not as privileged as we who are saved today and seek God’s wisdom from within.
I love Elisha’s response when they arrive to ask him to seek God for them; he has to get at least one jab in to the king of Israel who at that time worshipped other gods. He promptly tells him if it wasn’t for his buddy he’d not give him the time of day. That’s Shari quoted… read it for yourself…
14 And Elisha said, As the Lord of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, surely, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would not look toward thee, nor see thee.
Elisha preached it like it was, and the king of Israel did not take him to a happy place. But here comes the fiddle! Okay it was a harp. But before Elisha gives them an answer he needs to set the tone for worship and he does that through stringed music. The rest of the story, they find water and they win the battle through the hand of God!
The lesson here? Before any battle, be it of flesh or foe we need to seek the Lord and we need to do so with a heart of worship. The Battle is His alone. Elisha set his mind on the things above by using the tools below. We have them at our disposal… we just fail to use them. One of my favorite fiddle pieces that would cause Squire Parsons to grimace at the least is “Beulah Land.” Oh…. I have but to lay my bow to the string and draw the first note before God enters my presence… I think He likes Squire’s song too. Are you facing a battle and needing an answer? I suggest you take Elisha’s advice and call the minstrel, and make sure it’s a song God likes…
But now… Somebody get my fiddle.
Thank you for sharing Karen, Randal and Shari! We love you all!
In the love of our Lord Jesus Christ, Dewey, Sharon, Family and FGGAM Team

Pastor Paul Holt’s Mother-in-law, Tita Sanchez passes onto Heaven

TitaYesterday as I headed to Reserve, NM to preach I stopped to see my partner in ministry, Pastor Paul Holt in Magdalena, NM to have a cup of coffee with him and his lovely wife Jo and son Phil. Jo was not there as she was at Rust Hospital in Albuquerque watching over her Mom, Tita Sanchez, who was slipping away to heaven. Pastor Paul and Phil left after a quick cup of coffee to head to Rust Hospital to be with all the family. About 11:30am yesterday 83 year old Tita entered the gates of heaven. I have met Tita a few times and she was a soft spoken lovely women of God. Tita’s husband Joe passed onto heaven on July 2, 2002, he was a WWII hero and Purple Heart recipient. Tita lived in the family home in Socorro, NM and attended the Catholic Church there as well as attending Pastor Paul’s weekly Bible study. Sharon and I and all of the FGGAM Team send our love to the whole family and rest in peace knowing that Tita is with our Father and is reunited with Joe. Funeral arrangements are pending.

She has had to build a new data base and then we are re-doing the look of the CUP and changing how we distribute it, we are going to subscribe to a service and dump AOL. I have finally listened and paid the price for not listening! LOL! Please consider helping support all the free services that FGGAM provides the Kingdom of God, we do not charge for any of our services. God Bless you and yours!

Invitation to the Thirsty

Cry Out to GodDear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
We love being with you!
Please pray for our friend Kathy Merlock who is having some health issues, we pray complete healing over Kathy, in Jesus name, Amen!
I will be on KAZQ TV 32 in Albuquerque Wednesday at 7:30pm and Thursday at 7:30am, the program is called “Spectrum” We are being given this time to share all about what God has done and what He is doing now through FGGAM! PRAISE GOD! Please pray over this program, that the words that are spoken will move people closer to Jesus Christ.
I may not get a CUP out because of the TV program, but we will see what God does.
I am preparing my sermon for Sunday at the Baptist Church in Reserve, NM, (By the way Henry at Henry’s gas station in Reserve just told me they had 5 inches of snow! Now it is raining, PRAISE GOD FOR THE MUCH NEEDED MOISTURE IN THAT DROUGHT STRICKEN AREA!) please pray with me for the words to be God’s not mine.
The Lord has shown me to preach on Thirst, Thirsting for Him.
Yesterday on our radio program I was telling Pastor Paul Holt, my co-host this:
So many people are dying of thirst for Jesus Christ, but they don’t know it, they don’t know HIM.
We used to have this saying back home, “He needs to take his medicine, but doesn’t know it”
They are so thirsty….they are dying of thirst….I pray we reach them for Jesus Christ. They need to drink Jesus, His Word, His ways. They need to take the medicine of Jesus Christ. God is the ultimate Physician.
Yesterday I posted this survey that Pastor Randy Walquist was using in his message Sunday on KKIM Radio in Albuquerque, NM: I just heard this on KKIM AM1000 yesterday from Rev. Randy Walquist of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Albuquerque, NM: A recent USA Today survey showed that the American Church has lost the home field advantage. This so ties in with my message today! The survey showed that 72% of Americans do not belong to a Church but believe in a living God. They do not belong to a Church because they feel that the Church and Church attendees are hypocritical. 50% of that group said that Church attendees get on their nerves. 4 out of 5 said that Church attendees to not show the love of Jesus. Chew on that for awhile! Despite that news, I Thank the Lord for the many Churches that are standing in the gap for God!
John asked me, “What Church are you talking about there are thousands of Churches” Well, Brother John I’m talking about you and me, and all our readers we are the Church, we are the Body of Christ.
We are all responsible for telling the World about Jesus Christ.
We are to be the salt and light to the world, Amen!
We must let them know:
Everybody chooses where they are going to spend Eternity!
A word of encouragement is that today Kelly Snelgrove posted on HOPE, it’s the number one inspirational post today at FGGAM. We can tell that people are searching for HOPE, they type it in the search bar on the FGGAM website. The world is looking for HOPE, Let’s show them JESUS CHRIST! AMEN! That is what we try and do here at FGGAM, showing the light of Jesus Christ to one person at a time.
This is the scripture I am focused on at the present time…..
Isaiah 55
Invitation to the Thirsty…….
“Come, all you who are thirsty,

come to the waters;

and you who have no money,

come, buy and eat!

Come, buy wine and milk

without money and without cost.

2 Why spend money on what is not bread,

and your labor on what does not satisfy?

Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,

and you will delight in the richest of fare.

3 Give ear and come to me;

listen, that you may live.

I will make an everlasting covenant with you,

my faithful love promised to David.

4 See, I have made him a witness to the peoples,

a ruler and commander of the peoples.

5 Surely you will summon nations you know not,

and nations you do not know will come running to you,

because of the Lord your God,

the Holy One of Israel,

for he has endowed you with splendor.”

6 Seek the Lord while he may be found;

call on him while he is near.

7 Let the wicked forsake their ways

and the unrighteous their thoughts.

Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,

and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways,”

declares the Lord.

9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,

so are my ways higher than your ways

and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 As the rain and the snow

come down from heaven,

and do not return to it

without watering the earth

and making it bud and flourish,

so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,

11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:

It will not return to me empty,

but will accomplish what I desire

and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

12 You will go out in joy

and be led forth in peace;

the mountains and hills

will burst into song before you,

and all the trees of the field

will clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,

and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.

This will be for the Lord’s renown,

for an everlasting sign,

that will endure forever.”
You may read that scripture often or maybe you have not read it in awhile, or PRAISE GOD this may be your first time you have read this scripture. I believe with my whole heart God’s Word is not Preached out loud enough in the Church. We must Preach that every Word in the Bible is has been breathed by God. 2 Tim 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, It is God’s Word’s, do you believe in the Full Gospel? I think it is a miracle that we have God’s Word in the Bible! Amen! One of the greatest miracles, that maybe we take to much for granted and maybe we don’t preach that it is the “Word of God” “God Breathed”

Kelly’s Word For The Day~ HOPE This is the number one Inspirational today at FGGAM by Kelly Snelgrove, we can see that people are searching for Hope on our website by simply typing in HOPE. The world is looking for HOPE.

She is in a bit of pain this morning, please continue to cover her in your prayers for complete healing. No cancer…….test results on Wednesday. Lord, we pray for Wanell and you know all and we come to you this morning and ask for complete healing for her. Thank you Lord, in Jesus name, Amen.
I talked on Saturday to Kathy Garcia another FGGAM Board Member ( we are under attack) who had cancer surgery awhile back. Kathy continues to recover, she has a couple of health issues, we pray perfect health over Kathy Lord, perfect health, in Jesus name, Amen. Kathy also thanks you for your continued love and prayers.
We also want to extend our sympathy to the Eldon Nagorske family back in my hometown of Windom, Minnesota. Eldon has passed onto heaven. He produced so much Godly fruit in his life, his family, his works at Fairfield Management Company in Windom. God Bless the memory of Eldon Nagorske.
“If we could get America as excited for Jesus as it is for football, we could turn this country around for God! Pray with me that that day will come soon. I pray America’s pastime becomes Jesus Christ.” Pastor Dewey
I just heard this on KKIM AM1000 yesterday from Rev. Randy Walquist of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Albuquerque, NM: A recent USA Today survey showed that the American Church has lost the home field advantage. This so ties in with my message today! The survey showed that 72% of Americans do not belong to a Church but believe in a living God. They do not belong to a Church because they feel that the Church and Church attendees are hypocritical. 50% of that group said that Church attendees get on their nerves. 4 out of 5 said that Church attendees to not show the love of Jesus. Chew on that for awhile! Despite that news, I Thank the Lord for the many Churches that are standing in the gap for God!
That information ties in with today’s message:
I just love going back and reading about God’s Saints, my Mom would say to me, “I want you to grow up to be a Saint, live like a Saint.” Grandma Caraway said to me in 1974, “You are going to be a Preacher someday!”( Definition of a Saint: a person acknowledged as holy or virtuous) We are all called to be Saints! To behave like Saints! 1 Cor. 1:2 in King James we read: Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours. When I was growing up if someone got to big for their britches we would say, ” You think your a Saint!” Today many of us think we are Saints, but many of us have a ways to go, I sure do. Now to be clear I’m not talking about the Catholic Church and their Saints, I’m talking about you and me and our calling from God, being Holy and virtuous, living a Saintly life for God. Today I have been studying the life of Pastor Robert Murray McCheyne of Scotland who lived from 1813 to just 1843. He was just 30 when he died, But what an IMPACT for GOD! Oh, so much of the Church has watered down what it means to be the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ.
McCheyne was careful and consistent in his devotional life. It was a happy custom to spend time before breakfast reading scripture (three chapters a day, singing hymns (he was an excellent musician), and praying. He followed the counsel of Godly seventeenth-century Anglican Jeremy Taylor.
Taylor said, “If thou meanest to enlarge thy religion, do it rather by enlarging thine ordinary devotions than thy extraordinary.”
Warren W. Wiersbe writes in his book, “50 People Every Christian Should Know”, That is good counsel(from Taylor) for today, to many Christians are scurrying around looking for special meetings, thinking that extraordinary experiences will make them better Christians. In my own ministry in Pastor conferences, I have discovered that too many ministers neglect their daily devotional time, or hurry through it, so they can get involved in “more important matters.”
McCheyne said, “It is not great talents God blesses so much as great likeness to Jesus. A holy minister is an awesome weapon in the hand of God.”
I love to hear people say, “My Pastor is a Holy man of God!”
Another quote, “I feel there are two things it is impossible to desire without sufficient passion—-personal holiness and honor of Christ in the salvation of souls.”
The American Church is not Baptizing enough. We are not growing the Church in America, most Church growth comes from people changing Churches. I have read so many books/facts and figures on this! Also there is the problem of when people are baptized many forget about them, that they are just in diapers and don’t stand by their side to grow them up in Jesus Christ. readingtheword
Another quote from McCheyne, “Live so as to be missed”
Also: “To gain entire likeness to Christ, I ought to get a high esteem of the happiness of it. I am persuaded that God’s happiness is inseparably linked in with His holiness.”
I strongly encourage you to study the Saints of the past………a good start is Wiersbe’s book.
The Late Chuck Colson, another Saint, said one day on his radio program, Breakpoint, “The American Church has become one big High School pep rally, there is not much substance.” Yes the American Church as a whole wants to make people “feel good” We need more of: ” I have come to comfort the inflicted and inflict the comfortable.”
Grab one of Colson’s books, read it, it is either going to comfort you or make you feel very uncomfortable, better yet, read your Bible.
My discernment, through studying these Saints, has shown me what true Church is, It’s all about God and His Word. Being obedient to God in everything! Amen!

Romans 1:7

To all those in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 14:33

For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints,

Hebrews 12:1

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

The next two posts are from Dawn Rae Bridges. Dawn is from Maine and writes for us here at FGGAM. She is an outstanding writer for the Lord. These two really PREACH!!!! AMEN!!! CHOSEN……………
John 15:16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
Several years ago a sister in the Lord gave me a card. On the inside she had written: You are chosen of Him to bear His name. To show forth His glory in all you do and say. Be blessed today as He works in you, refining you for His purpose and namesake.
Think about that for just a minute…….He chose you……YOU! He wanted you and He loves you! You were worth all He suffered. It was His desire that you become His wife. He wanted an intimate relationship with you, so in His great love, He gave Himself.
We were talking with Gabi yesterday and she was telling us that some of the kids at Youth Group were upset because they were playing a game and had to choose teams. She was one of the last to be chosen yet the ones before were complaining because they weren’t picked first. Ron said, “Well, that’s right Gabi, because Jesus said the last shall be first.” (Matthew 19:30, Luke 13:30)
What a good word in His perfect timing! It made me think about when I was in school and was always one of the last three to be chosen…..every time. Then I began to think on this wonderful scripture:
Ephesians 1:4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love
And this one:
1 Peter 2:4 Coming to Him as a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious…
All that stuff from years ago will try to make you doubt that you are of great value, but Jesus is saying, “I choose you. I chose you before the foundations of the earth were formed. I knew you then and it was My desire for you to choose Me as well so that we could be one. I want you. You are not a reject, nor are you worthless. I lay down My very life for you because you are My heart’s desire.”
As you go about your day and the next time you have someone reject you or be unkind to you, I want you to remind yourself the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, our very own Beloved Bridegroom, our Husband, chooses you. You are of great value…….Him.
Today, I say to you, my beloved brethren:
You are chosen of Him to bear His name. To show forth His glory in all you do and say. Be blessed today as He works in you, refining you for His purpose and namesake.
Peter walks to JesusIsaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts You.
I just got back from a vacation to see my family and then Ron’s. The Lord has been talking with me about perfect peace and how to stay in that place of rest. The day before our trip, I turned on the computer to write my post and the computer was jacked up. Peace? Not at that moment! We couldn’t get it to work properly no matter what we did.
That night the Lord gave me a vision. I was walking and all around me a movie was playing of these last few years with the heartaches, struggles, and all the things that kept trying to pull my eyes off Him. Jesus was standing at the end of the place I was headed. He was smiling and motioning me to come. He was saying, “Look at Me, Dove. Don’t let all the things that try to pull you from me get your attention. Look at Me!” As long as I kept my eyes on Him, none of the peripheral stuff bothered me.
Jesus, our Prince of Peace has promised to keep us in perfect peace when our eyes are fixed on Him. Peace is in us……it is fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22). When we fix our eyes on Him, our mind is just agreeing with Him in our spirit man.
I looked up the word peace in the dictionary and the Strong’s and this is what it says:
Freedom from disturbance; safe, well, happy, health, all is well; to be safe in mind, body or estate; to be completed, restore.
Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
Hebrews 12:2a looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…
Jesus keeps His word! The word “looking” in the above scripture means “fixing one’s eyes on trustingly”.
You can see a perfect example in Peter’s experience of walking on the water….and sinking. All was well as long as he looked at Jesus, but as soon as he noticed the storm and tossing waves….down he went.
It has been the same in my own experience. As long as I keep my eyes on Him, no matter what is going on in the natural realm, I have peace that passes all understanding. Perspective is key here.
When your eyes are on Him you begin to see as He does. Jesus doesn’t worry so if we are fixing our eyes on Him, neither will we.
How do you fix your eyes on Him? When I start to get distracted by things, I immediately turn to Him and say, “Lord, I can’t deal with this. I give it to you.” or “How do You see this, Lord?” I pray in the Spirit, I read the scriptures, and I ask Holy Spirit to help me. If I am still struggling to get my thoughts off the issue and on Jesus, I put on some worship music and worship.
You see….it is a choice. In the scriptures above we are told: carnal thoughts…..death, spiritual thoughts… and peace; He gave us peace; LET not your heart be troubled nor afraid….you choose.
It isn’t always easy, but it is ALWAYS worth it to fix your eyes, heart, thoughts on the Lord Jesus. We do have an enemy that works hard to steal our peace. It’s up to you whether or not he succeeds.
Peace…..freedom from disturbance…. Amen! Choose to agree with Him today and to fix your eyes on Him.
(All scriptures NKJV; Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, Thomas Nelson Publishers 1990; Thorndike Barnhart Comprehensive Desk Dictionary 1950)
God Bless you Dawn!

Roots of Love

Greetings dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
This is Kelly Snelgrove with For God’s Glory Alone Ministries – I will be filling in today for Pastor Dewey Moede. Thank you Dewey for this time to share with you and your Daily Cup readers!
Recently, I was watching a documentary that made reference to the Giant Sequoia tree. I was intrigued and had to learn more of this magnificent creation by God. As I researched the Giant Sequoia, I was awed by how this amazing wonder related to our faith, lives and community. I would like to share a few of those observations with you today. I pray that these facts bless you as it blessed me in my discovery.
The Giant Sequoia can grow as tall as a 30 story building and the trunk as wide as most streets. Giant Sequoias are also one of the most enduring living things on the planet with some living past 3,000 years. Like most trees, they grow as long as they live.
Giant Sequoias are sun worshipers and absorb vast amounts of water. You will find them concentrated near streams and rivers of water.
Sequoias are extremely fruitful producing approximately 2,000 cones each year with an average of 200 seeds per cone. 400,000 seeds could be released per tree per year.
Public Domain CC0
They are resistant to many things, even fire. In fact, forest fires pop open the sequoia cones, distributing their seeds on the forest floor in the mineral-rich soil, fertilized by the ashes.
They are fire-resistant, but not fireproof. The thicker bark will not hold a flame, but the bark can be seared through when accumulations of fuel beneath the tree burn for a long time. Deep and long fire scars can be seen on many Giant Sequoia trunks.
Sequoias heal. They have an amazing ability to heal from fire damage. New wood grows continually from either side of a fire scar, covering a little more each year until the injury is healed over. Cross-sections of logged Sequoias show where in many cases the fire scars have completely healed after being damaged.
Perhaps the most amazing fact is the Giant Sequoias can grow in just 3 feet (1 meter) of soil and still withstand high winds. The Sequoia’s strength comes from their roots being intertwined with other Sequoias.
Sequoias help each other and don’t compete for resources. Instead their huge root systems bind together and they share their resources.
So by this intertwining of their roots, the Sequoias help each other by providing mutual strength and shared resources.
God’s plan for us is like that. With the love and support we receive from God and others, we have the ability to stand tall even in the buffeting winds of life. Hebrews 13:16 says we are to “do good and to share with others.” Consider how tough it would be to withstand adversity if someone were not sharing the roots of their strength with us.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Joe Stowell, Writer for Our Daily Bread, said “There is great power in the entwining gifts of words of encouragement, prayers of intercession, weeping together, holding each other, and sometimes just sitting with one another sharing the presence of our love. Let the roots of God’s love in your life be entwined with others who need your support.” Amen.
Love in Christ,

We love you all, Dewey, Sharon, Family and FGGAM Team

Our Daily CUP of Prayer and Worship

Dear friends of our Lord Jesus Christ,
We love you all so much!
I just got a text from Lucy in Midland, Texas saying there is so much sadness going around….I read this by Charles Spurgeon last night…”Let us banish every fearful thought, and rejoice with exceeding great joy, in the prospect that this year we shall begin to be “forever with the Lord.”
And this, one of my favorite verses from the Bible, from John 18:37….”You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” Now you see why the world is such a messy place. Many, yet, do not know Jesus, the Truth. They listen to the dark side.
WINDOM AREA FRIENDS: I come to you today with a very heavy heart to tell you that Mary (Harrington) Thompson lovely wife of Malon Thompson of Windom, Minn. passed away. Mary was just 57. Many of you know that Mary had MS. I was in their wedding 37 years ago in Windom. Mary and Malon are so special, Dear, Dear people. Please pray for peace and comfort for Malon and the whole family. I talked to Malon last night and this morning as we shared good memories, even about our snowblowing ministry we had for a couple of years in Windom!! It was to help elderly folks who could not clear their driveways and sidewalks. We always had a blast together!
Last night I also got a call from Ted Peters of Windom, Minnesota. Please pray for Ted he is living alone at 86, his wife and two daughters have passed away to heaven. Many of you that read this CUP know Ted from his days as a bus driver and Custodian at the School. Please look him up and show him the love of Jesus Christ. Amen!
I also want to let you know that Wannel Pate FGGAM Board Member underwent surgery yesterday to remove a cancerous growth from her breast. Her hubby Bob called me yesterday to let me know that she is doing great! PRAISE GOD! Please keep praying for Wanell, for complete healing in Jesus name.
Please pray for our friend Michael. I have come before you before on Michael’s behalf. Yesterday he was sentenced to 2 years in prison for being in a car that had marijuana in it. Please keep him in your prayers, I had the blessing of talking to him and praying with him before his hearing yesterday. What a very polite and loving young man. Please keep his family in your prayers also. Let us pray for an early release for Michael.
I need to do some catch up here as I have been so very busy. Yesterday I was on KKNS 1310AM in Albuquerque as the guest of Pastor Mark Tross. What a blessing! We have been very busy with ministry works and radio appearances and much else. Our oldest doggy Buffy is slowing down keep her and us in your prayers please it is a tough time. I know you animal lovers out there understand, they are like family! Buffy has been by my side for almost 14 years! I thank the Lord for all our furry friends that He has given us! Amen! They have made me a better man of God……more loving and forgiving! Amen! PRAISE GOD THE CREATOR OF ALL!!!!! Daily Cup
A friend of mine passed away a few days ago in Sidney, Montanta where I worked radio and did sports. Ron Ewing was a coach and when I worked with him he was Athletic Director. Great man, was a Sgt. in the Marines. Ron is a hero in the Sidney area and will be missed! He always got me the information I needed to do my job as play-by-play announcer for KGCX! God Bless the memory of Ron Ewing!

Prayer isn’t something we do with our eyes closed; we pray with our eyes wide-open. Prayer isn’t a sentence that begins with “Dear Jesus” and ends with “Amen.” In fact, the best prayer doesn’t even involve words at all; the best prayer is a life well lived. All of life is meant to be a prayer, just as all of life is meant to be an act of worship. From the book, “The Circle Maker” by Pastor Mark Battersonwoman_praise_worship_water
Let me share with you a testimony we got from Bud and Tara Shaver of Albuquerque, NM…………
Bud familyAs Pro-Life Missionaries to New Mexico it is imperative for us to be connected to the Christian community throughout the state. For God’s Glory Alone Ministries (FGGAM) provides a perfect network of support for prayer, encouragement, and breaking reports so that the Christian community can stay connected. As we continue to minister out on the front lines in Albuquerque, New Mexico the Late-Term Abortion Capital of America we are grateful for the ministry of FGGAM. More than ever we realize that as the Kingdom of God, we do not wage war the way that the world does, our battle is a “propaganda” battle over the hearts and minds of individuals held captive.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood…We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God!” Eph. 6:12; 2 Cor. 10:5
FGGAM helps us in a unique way to advance God’s Kingdom here in New Mexico by breaking through the barriers that sometimes exist within the media by getting the TRUTH out. In 2014 For God’s Glory Alone Ministries touched nearly 5 million people!
We are grateful to be contributing writers for FGGAM and our prayer is that you will see the relevance of this AMAZING ministry and consider what you can do to help build up this ministry in this New Year.
Together God can use us all as we reach further into our communities to the lost and broken with His saving gospel. Together we can also help educate and activate the body of Christ to stand for LIFE.
Because of Christ we stand,
Bud and Tara Shaver
Pro-Life Missionaries
