In my opinion, the most vital Bible passage for this moment is Paul’s 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13. Love is the password, the “pin” to Heaven. Love is that which “constrained” the Apostle to burn the candle at both ends, all the way to his execution, which is believed to have been by decapitation in Rome. … Read moreLove is the theme
“Our God is an AWESOME GOD, He reigns from Heaven above with wisdom, power and love, Our God is an awesome God!” Great truth is given in this “oldie but goodie” praise and worship song! It sometimes rains down trials and challenges in this life. Those of you who receive e-mails have noticed one after … Read moreFrom the Pastor
I am excited! August 17th through August 21st, unless the Spirit falls so powerfully that Evangelist Joe needs to stay over! About WHAT am I ranting? On August 16th, Lord willing, Valley Church, Pastor Tom Metz, will be hosting a Gospel Music gathering at their facility on Center Road in Saginaw Township. Emmanuel’s frequent guest … Read moreExcited!
Many are teaching and preaching from, and speculating about the last book in the Protestant cannon of Scripture. However, I find a powerful message in the penultimate book, Jude: And in particular, Jude 20-21. (This is not to diminish Revelation. :>) ) I fear many in the ever expanding number of congregations in the … Read moreA Pastor’s Heart Meditations
It is certainly not original with Emmanuel, and it was regularly enjoined by the membership long before I began my brief tenure as pastor in 2003.

But a pastor does wonder what motivates born again church members to do as the author of Hebrews 10:24-25 says NOT to do. … Read moreRevival?

In short, except for Noah and his immediate family, there was TOTAL disregard of God’s warning about the flood. Is the Heavenly Father preparing for the climax of the world’s existence, of time itself? Has He deliberately … Read moreThe Days of Noah by Sam Hamilton
Don’t you wish we could lock today’s weather in and hit “play” until maybe May 1, 2018? I heard that. Some of you love the snow and ice. I don’t remember the country-western singer —Ray Stevens?—but the lyrics ring true that say..”everything is beautiful in its own way..” In Genesis, God declared….”it is good” at … Read moreA Beautiful Day by Pastor Sam (Saturday, September 2, 2017)
Good Wednesday Afternoon, August, 23, 2017 Statistics indicate that the third most common cause for people consulting their family doctor is depression.
