Keep Standing for Jesus
He'll stand for YOU!

Welcome to Our April Issue
Happy Easter. He is Risen!
I don’t know what you’re going through at this time, but whatever it is God will bring deliverance to you. In the midst of all your trouble God is right there. He is ready, willing, and more than able to reach out and touch you. The devil will tell you that God doesn’t care. That He won’t heal you. That you’ll never be delivered from your present circumstances and that you’ll never receive any peace from the turmoil you’re in. These are all lies of the devil. God is a good God so don’t believe anything to the contrary. If you’re sick God will heal you. If you’re having a financial struggle God will meet that need. No matter the type of satanic attack you’re under, God cares and wants to help. Tell the devil to take a hike. Shake him off!
Until next time remember, I said it and you read it, right here at The Christian Online Magazine.
Just like Christmas, the Easter story can become so familiar that we miss its significance in our lives. When was the last time we fully considered what Jesus did for us on the cross?
We must remember that He was the Christ, the promised Messiah. Why is this important? There was no one else who could have been the perfect sacrifice to take away our sin. Only God’s Son who was without sin could pay for our sin.
I have found a new author to follow. Add The Wedding Dress to the top of your reading list.
When hope is gone, hang on anyway!
Leigh's Spiritual Garden: Miracles Happen Today

Hope Etc. Friendship--What do we Teach our Kids?
There's a saying out there that appears every now and then on Facebook walls. I have no idea how old it is or where it originated. I suppose I could check Wikipedia or Google it, we all know if it's on the internet it must be...I'll skip the rest of that!
Here goes: A friend comes into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
Is that in the Bible?
Sidebar here. For my entire life, friendship has been as important to me as the relationships I have within my family. As a pastor's wife, I can take it one step further and say that my friendships within the family of God rank at the top of importance and are near to my heart.
Joy Through the Storm: Remembering Rose Mary
Sitting down to write this is extremely difficult. Thank goodness for deadlines or I may have procrastinated for a year. Emotions are raw and memories are sweet, and combined together have left me in a puddle of mush. But it is time. It is time to form the words. It is time to write this Tribute for my beautiful friend.
Just a few short weeks ago, an amazing soul left this world to find her freedom in the arms of Jesus. Rose Mary was 93 years young, and although the 6 years I had known her were only a drop in the ocean, I feel as though she gave me a lifetime of friendship, wisdom, and enrichment.

Everyday Faith: The Remnant That Prevails
by Jane Morin, Staff Writer
Maybe when you see the word remnant, you think of a cut-off piece of carpet or a discarded portion of unneeded cloth. When God speaks of a remnant, he is speaking about a generation of people who are not unneeded or discarded, but a vital people in the Body of Christ.
In Revelation 12: 17 we read:
“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and he went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
Did you see what the remnant is responsible for doing? It is the remnant of the last days who will be responsible for keeping the commandments of God and possessing the testimony of Jesus. In Romans, the picture is clearer when it says, "Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved." (Romans 9:27)
The Joy of Baking: Sweet Potatoes

UMMM Sweet Potatoes – This is a VERY EASY recipe. Simply bake, refrigerate and serve throughout the week!
Wow! 120 trumpets being played in a church worship service. When one congregation met to worship there were not only 120 trumpets, there were also cymbals, harps and other instruments, along with a large number of singers. The glory of the Lord filled the place. The ministers were unable to continue performing their duties. We can read about this extravagant praise and worship even in the Bible, at 2 Chronicles 5:12-14.
