  • Miller speaks on history of Valley Creek

    Ancestral Trails Historical Society met this month with guest speaker Joe Carroll Miller who spoke on the history of Valley Creek Church.

    Miller has been the clerk of the church for over 50 years. She displayed all the books containing the past minutes of the church back to the beginning in 1872 when it was formed. W.C. Rogers donated the land for the first church. The present church was built in 1995.

  • Lessons can be learned from the seven churches

    Revelation 2:1 “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write, these things says he who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walk in the midst of the seven golden lampstands.

    Dispensationalists see a prophetic application in the letters of Revelation that suggest that they outline seven stages of church history, with the churches of Philadelphia and Laodicea representing the final end-time churches.

  • To God be the glory

    Psalm 19 speaks eloquently concerning God’s word and God’s world. The Psalmist often is discouraged, depressed, disappointed and oppressed. He reaches out to God in the midst of his frustrations, illnesses, problems and finds that God is there.

  • Christ’s sacrifice offered to all

    And has made us kings and priests to his God and father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever Amen. Rev. 1:6

    The sacrifice of Jesus has given to all believers the privileges that had belonged to ancient Israel (Exodus 29:1-9); 1 Peter 2:0-10). Jesus Christ has made believers to be priests and kings now, both witness and worship (Revelation 5:10).

  • Through God's love and with repentance, you can go home again

    Someone once said, “You can’t go home again.” But the good news of the Bible is you can go home again. Man was created for fellowship with God. Sin breaks that fellowship and causes separation from God. In spite of our rebellion God still loves us and through the death of Christ made provision for the forgiveness of our sins and our return.

  • A successful life follows God’s paths

    Life is a series of choices. Success is basically a matter of making wise decisions. If you make dumb decisions you will fail in life. We make our decisions and then our decisions make us. Every decision has a consequence.

    The Psalmist says, “He guides me in the paths of righteousness ...” (Psalm 23:2). The Good Shepherd leads, guides, directs and keeps us on track if we will allow him. Doing God’s will brings peace within. God wants us to know his will more than we want to know it.

  • There are many interpretations of the Book of Revelation

    The word “Revelation” translates the Greek word apokaplypsis, which is an unveiling or disclosing of reality that previously has not perceived. This apocalypse came from God through Jesus Christ, whose past, present and future position and work makes up the content of the revelation communicated to John by an angel (22:16). The purpose of this book is to show his servants what must take place between the first and second coming of Jesus. The entire message is to be signified (said through signs).
