Doug Whitley portrays Uncle Bud Robinson

Dear Tucapau family, In the events leading up to Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, our Lord is in Bethany where He raises his friend Lazarus from the dead. Lazarus had been dead for four days.  But nothing is impossible with God. A dear friend of mine, Doug Whitley, portrays Uncle Bud Robinson. Reuben “Uncle Bud” Robinson (1860-1942) was born in a log cabin in the primitive mountain region of Tennessee. When he was 16, his father died, and his mother…

Our Sovereign God

In these historic days, we as the Church must show the love of Christ to the world in such a way that is undeniable. In the midst of such chaotic times as these, there is the constancy of God. He is sovereign. He is God Almighty. He is “I AM”. As a precaution and to obey the decisions that are being made by our President and his committees, we will be suspending ALL services until Sunday, April 5, 2020. If…

The Manifest Love of God

In 1 John 4:9 – 10, we are told of the great Love of God. John writes, “By this, the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His son to be the propitiation for our sins.” How beautiful indeed are these words. It wasn’t that we…

The Prominence of Prayer

In the Garden of Eden, the serpent (Satan) tempted Eve to distrust God. This act of disobedience committed by Adam and Eve broke the intimate relationship they had with God. Instead of the constant manifest Presence of God, that closeness was now shattered by an act of sin that brought all creation under the curse and wrath of God. However, this was no surprise to our Father. Before the foundation of the world, He knew what would happen and He…

Seeking the Manifest Presence of God

In the Gospel of Luke (verses 38 – 42) the Holy Spirit records for us the visit of Jesus to Bethany to go to  the home of Martha and Mary. Martha, being the eldest, takes on the responsibility to make sure that all arrangements are just so in order to receive their Guest. However, in her efforts to attend to the preparations, the Word tells us that she became “distracted” and was upset that her sister, Mary, was not helping…

Being a Good Samaritan – Part 2

Scripture records for us that Jesus answered the Lawyer’s question by asking him: “What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?” (Luke 10: 26) This question is an amazing answer by the Lord. He directs this legal expert back to the very law which he should know intimately. Jesus goes straight to the motive and heart of this man by asking him “How does it read to you?” Jesus was asking him what he believed the…

Being a Good Samaritan Part 1

This past Sunday, September 22, our sermon focused on the Parable of the Good Samaritan. many of us have heard of this account in varying degrees before. Whether it be from the Scriptural context or from the secular phraseology of one who does good to another as being “a good Samaritan.” This teaching of Jesus has influenced our world and our culture by highlighting God’s expectation of His people to be different from the world (Be ye Holy for I…

Trust and Go!

In the tenth chapter of the Gospel according to Luke, we experience the account of Jesus sending out the seventy (NASB). He sends them out in pairs into both Jewish and Gentile lands for one purpose: to preach the Kingdom of God. Jesus gives them specific instructions on the manner in which they are to go (Luke 10: 1 – 11). As I have read and understood the account of this Ministry of Grace that our Lord mandates to the…

Our Path to Heaven

Introduction: What happens to us when we die? As devoted followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, we long for the day when we shall be with Him in His glorious abode forever. Nevermore to be burdened with this battle with sin and death. In this life, we are certain of very few thing. One of those truths is that if Jesus tarries, we will experience the death of this earthly, fallen physical body. This truth begs the question: What happens…

How Church Members Can Prepare For Easter at Tucapau Baptist Church

As we begin to think about Easter, I want to share a few facts that I read in a recent article by Thom Rainer: Fact: Easter will be one of the highest attended days of the year for our church. (Let’s pray that it may be the highest). Fact: There will be some people you don’t know. Fact: We have an opportunity to make an impression on people that can impact their eternity. So how can we be prepared for the opportunity…
