April 29 – May 1, 2016 at the Smith County Ag Center in Carthage, Tennessee.
Over the past yeas I have been blessed to see some of these groups play gospel music in person. Last month I had the chance to see Wilburn and Wilburn in Lenoir City, TN. It was a great concert. Their song “You Asked Him To Leave” is so true and answers the question asked by so many people when bad things happen. Many times when calamities and catastrophes happen people ask “Why did God let this happen?” and they want to blame the Lord for the bad stuff. But we have to understand that many times the bad things happen because we have asked God to leave us alone and chosen to live as if He was dead or we wilfully ignore Him. Now you know we are asking for trouble when we ignore God or act as if He is dead. In the case of the school shootings mentioned in Wilburn & Wilburn’s song we have to understand that God was asked to leave the public school system of the United States. God has been expelled, asked to leave, made illegal, is being ignored, mocked and kids are being misdirected about the facts of the Bible. In 1962 prayer was abolished, in 1963 prayer was removed. We all know that was the tipping point from which the USA nosedived into failure because after that the USA has been in a losing game. Industry destroyed, wars lost, debt skyrocketing, divorce, abortion …. and no victories.
Are you walking with Jesus? Let this video inspire you!
Let the Scriptures speak to you:
“That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;” Colossians 1:10.
“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:” Colossians 2:6
“Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more. ” 1. Thessalonians 4:1.
It is better to walk with Jesus than to err, transgress or get sidetracked and lost in this world.
What a wonderful voice that touches the heart! Nothing is greater than those beloved old time hymns. This reminds me of my own Christian duty to sing unto the Lord with grace in my heart.
Singer Alma Gluck ( May 11, 1884 – October 27, 1938), born to Jewish Romanian immigrants, is the mother of actor Efrem Zimbalist, jr., who was on the TBN ministry and is known for his Bible readings and broadcasts from the Holy Land. Zimbalist is the father of Stephanie Zimbalist who was on the Remington Steele series from the 1980s.
Feel free to share with others who might love those hymns of worship!
“Victory in Jesus” is one of my favorite hymns. Never forget how at one time I sang it together with a coworker at work in a cardboard factory. And we sang it as a group of street preachers at an intersection in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Not to mention the precious memories of singing it in church. As believers we are more than conquerors and we can overcome with the blood of the Lamb and our testimony. Jesus has gained us the victory over the enemy called death. Victory is ours in Christ. We can thank the Lord Jesus for the victory. Satan has lost the battle.
The video shows some footage from the Smoky Mountains. This is at the outlook on Clingman’s Dome. The Smoky Mountains still have that impression of the old school America that was colonized and built by people of faith. The people that first settled in this neck of the woods – places like Cades Cove – were people who wanted to live for God, without government interference and able to make their own living. They don’t come here to live like atheists, socialists, or pop culture people who are dependent on trends and fashions set by city folks who don’t know God, don’t know the Bible, and despise the life lived by those who first settled this part of America. The folks that came here started churches and experienced revival as circuit-riding preachers brought the gospel into every remote holler.
