Sunday sermon [video made 9-2-18]
Deuteronomy 4:5 Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it- 4:6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

This Sunday I taught from the verses for the Mass [9-2-18] I found it interesting how the readings fit with what happened earlier in the day.
Later today [9-9-18] I will try and post the video I make today to Facebook and Youtube- links to all my sites are at the bottom of each post- my main site is here- www.corpuschristioutreachministries.blogspot.com

I try to review the verses on Friday night- and then re-read them on Saturday.
So when I talk on Sunday I have at least looked at them a few times.
Earlier on Friday I had a chance meeting with Gabriel- I made a video on it that same day

https://youtu.be/9vqwMHJf2Fs [Gabriel talks on this video]
Gabriel was around 5 years old when I last saw him- in Kingsville.
I started a church in 1987- and used to work with the guys on the streets of Kingsville- just about all of them struggled with drug addiction.
One of the first Friends I met was Elias Alvarado- I met him when I did bible studies at the Kleberg county jail- he of course was in jail- and I would go up on Sundays and teach.
Eventually Elias got out- became a member of the church I started- and we worked together in ministry.
He used to bring his family to our meetings- and he had about 5 boys at the time [2 more later on].
Yes- a big family.
Gabriel was his youngest at the time [I think?]- and I remember him running around the church- doing things that kids do.
Eventfully his father died- he had a brain aneurysm one night- and it just so happened that I was working at the Fire House that night- and was one of the emergency crews that responded.
Sadly- Elias died young.
Yet- he became a pastor of another church in Kingsville- was working with the same group of guys I worked with- the group he himself used to be a part of-
And he was serving the Lord when he died.
Ok- the other day when I was hanging out on the streets- Gabriel came up to me- now 33 years old mind you- and he asked about my motorcycle.
You know- just a compliment on the bike.
As he looked at me- he asked me my name- I told him ‘John’.
He looked puzzled- and asked for my last name.
When I told him- he identified himself as the son of Elias.
It was a chance encounter- but it was from the Lord.
I talked about it on both the videos I made that day- and later that night when I reviewed the verses for the Mass-
They actually were the same verses Gabriel quoted to me earlier in the day.
On today's video [Sunday sermon- 9-2-18] I also talked about the notes I had written years before- that were in my bible as I opened up to Deuteronomy 4 to review- the notes are a story in itself.
You will have to watch the video to see the rest [some sites- see the rest here https://ccoutreach87.com/2018/09/09/sunday-sermon-32/ ]
