Martin Luther one day was walking up the steps of the cathedral on his hands and knees over broken glass, endeavoring to do penance, thereby seeking to atone for his sins. As he was toiling painfully and laboriously up the steps in this manner, blood trickling from his hands and knees, cut by the broken glass, he heard a voice from heaven saying:
“Martin Luther, the Just shall live by Faith.”
At the words, a great light fell from Heaven. It banished the darkness and doubts, it illuminated the soul of Martin Luther, and revealed the finished work of Calvary and the blood that alone can atone for sin.
“For nothing good have I,
Whereby Thy grace to claim,
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calvary’s Lamb.”
The days that followed were eventful days, epoch-making days, fraught with self-sacrifice and suffering. The Lord had spoken, and promised that all the years that had been eaten should be restored, and out of the seas of travail and suffering that followed the preaching of Justification by Faith there was born a little body of blood-washed fire-tried pilgrims, willing to suffer persecution for His Name’s sake.

Happy Monday morning folks. We had a great Easter Celebration service Sunday night via YouTube ( with technical glitches, LOL ) Thank you for being patient with us as we had audio problems before we got started. However, the music, the testimonies of what God had done this previous year, and the Word of God I trust gave us more than enough to be thankful for.
I preached on " After The Resurrection WHAT? " Which hopefully we will have edited and made available to all of you on our ministry website soon. I believe it was a challenging message that gave us all hope for the future. The music Brother Martinez and others presented was fantastic, and everything else was like gravy. Just so good in so many ways.
Keep on being faithful to you Neighborhood Groups and thank you all for your faithful love.
Reverend Patrick Vossen,
