C.H. Prayer Table :: Saturday, December 29, 2018

Image
We had a super great time praying for and encouraging people who came by the prayer table this past Saturday.One cool thing about the prayer table is that those whom we minister to willingly stop by our setup location. 
Then, after listening to their story and before we begin praying, we make sure to tell them we are praying in the name of Jesus Christ.
This opens up a conversation that leads to being able to share the gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ.
This time a gentleman came up and opened up with his story and by the end of the conversation our brother Mario led him to Jesus.
I am amazed every time in regards to our Heavenly Father's timing and planning. 
At every prayer table event that we have, the Lord provides just enough of us, for the amount of people that show up on that given morning.
A few of us showed up this time and so the Lord sent us a lot of people to minister to. 
One of the bros., Jorge, who never comes by due to other commitments on Saturday mornings actually cam…

Merry Christmas 2018

Merry Christmas to all of our sisters and brothers in Christ from San Bernardino to Redlands to Riverside and all over the globe! May our Heavenly Father richly refresh your soul as you call on Him today!
"The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul." -Psalm 19:7a (NIV)"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." -Psalm 147:3 (NIV)
If you haven't surrendered your life over to Jesus then "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." -2 Corinthians 6:2b
Don't wait another day because another day is not promised.

This will be the best decision you've ever made!
God bless you and Stay Strong!

C.H. Men's Bible Study :: Romans 2:17-29 :: December 22, 2018

Hey everyone! This Saturday we'll be taking a look at what the apostle Paul said about those who were knowledgeable in the law of God and attempted to correct everyone else but themselves. (Hey, that happens today also!)

In addition, we'll read how those hypocritical actions affected (and still affect) the name of our Heavenly Father (and Christianity), and how they can be corrected for the Glory of God.

Join us if you can. Bring your Bible and invite a friend!

CH Mens Bible Study :: ROMANS 1:18-32 :: 12/08/2018

Image
The venture continues into the the second half of Romans chapter one.We will be looking at what the Bible says about God's wrath on unrighteousness and ungodliness.

What is the wrath of God?

Wrath means anger, but what is God angry at?

Is He angry all of the time?

What's the deal with this? I thought God is a loving caring God who never gets angry...

We'll look at the answers to these questions as we read and study through the scripture verse by verse this Saturday.

Hope to see you there!

CH-Mens Bible Study :: ROMANS INTRODUCTION :: 11/17/2018

Image
We are super excited to announce that the Cobbler House men's Bible study in the book of Romans begins tomorrow at 6AM.Stop by and be challenged and refreshed in the Word of God as we dig into the scriptures chapter by chapter and verse by verse! 
We will begin with an introduction to the Book of Romans with emphasis on its author - the apostle Paul.
Paul was a man of great intelligence who from his youth to renowned Pharisee and "Hebrew of Hebrews" kept the Law of God to the T.
The Bible says that Paul, concerning the righteousness which is in the law, was blameless and had much zeal.
His zeal of the the law was so great that he persecuted Christians even unto death. No one or nothing would stand in his way until that fateful day when he was confronted by Jesus on the road near Damascus.
From that moment forward, Paul would become a new man in Christ to be used mightily by our Heavenly Father. . . 
Hope to see you at the study. Don't forget to bring your Bible and a frien…

Hey everyone! Mark your calendars. I'm excited to announce the next Cobbler House Men's Bible study.Stop by to refresh your soul and healat the Cobbler House beginning Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 6am.

We will be studying through the book of Romans, chapter by chapter and verse by verse. No verse will be left unturned.

As born again believers in Jesus and commissioned to share the gospel of salvation to all the world, what can we learn from Paul and the book of Romans?

Here's a preview of what Paul stated in Romans 1:16. . .
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek." (NKJV)If you have any questions, please text 909. 499. 9116. Type CHStudy

Prayer Table :: Saturday, October 27, 2018

Image
There was a slight twist at the prayer table yesterday as a couple of people came up to share their testimony of receiving Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord of their life.Although we are always encouraged to be used by our Heavenly Father through praying and sharing Jesus out in the streets of San Bernardino, it was different this time.

It was as if our Heavenly Father sent us a direct message that what we are doing, for His Glory, out there is a good, good thing.

A gentleman came up and parked right in front of the prayer table.

The three of us who were there went up to his vehicle, and he began to tell us how he accepted Jesus Christ just down the street from where we were positioned.

He stated that a lady, back in 1975, had been out there praying for people just as we were, and she told him about Jesus.

Long story short, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour that day. Now, he himself, goes out to the streets of San Bernardino to also share the good news of Jesus Christ.

We were…

Prayer Table :: Saturday, September 29, 2018

Image
Yesterday's prayer table outing was super great! We arrived at 6am to the corner of 5th and "E" streets in San Bernardino. We set up the popup overhead canopy, prayer table, witnessing tracts and a few chairs then waited for people to come around.
People were slow to arrive at first, but Cesar, Mario, Christopher, Dominic and I took advantage of that 'down' time.
We read our Heavenly Father's Word and encouraged one another with it. The main discussion was waiting patiently for the Lord.
We were going to begin praying when suddenly people began coming up to the table so that ended fast. 
I shouldn't be surprised anymore regarding the people who come up to us to request prayer. 
I'm sure the stereotype is that the homeless, the thugs and the worst of the worst would be coming around to the table since we're in downtown San Bernardino, but quite the opposite is true.
We had a variety. 
From the well dressed with nice cars to the medium to the least of thes…

Men's Bible Study :: September 22, 2018 :: FELLOWSHIP

Image
Hey everyone! I hope all is well! Tomorrow we will be looking at what the Bible says about FELLOWSHIP.I've spoken to many who have told me that there is no need to go to church. Some have even told me that it says in the Bible that we don't have to.

Is it ok to be a "lone ranger" Christian or should we be in fellowship with other believers?

We'll dig into the Bible to find out what It says.

If you are able, stop by and be encouraged.

Men's Bible Study :: September 15, 2018 :: THOUGHTS

Image
Men! Join us this Saturday at 6am as we take a look at what the Bible says about our Thoughts.Some people think that as long as you don't perform the action and only keep it in mind, then it's ok to [fill in the blank]. But, the Bible says different.
So, should we be concerned about what goes into our mind? What we watch on television? and countless other things that affect our mind. These and other questions will be answered from scripture this Saturday so join us and be encouraged.

Raising Adults

Image
“Whoever heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.”
‭‭-Proverbs‬ ‭10:17‬ ‭NIV‬‬My wife and I have recently been speaking with each other regarding the importance of disciplining  our children, and we've also spoken about and have noticed the outcome of an undisciplined child.

Most of us have children at different ages. My kids are relatively young and some of you have adult children.

Discipline is not a fun thing to administer on a child, but I have read that discipline instills a sense of security in a child.

My wife and I are relatively new parents considering our oldest child is only eight. At this time we're unable to see the results of our parenting in full, but one thing we try to remember is that we are not raising children, but as its been said "we are all raising adults."
I am thankful that I had discipline and structure in my childhood because it helped me to respect authority, to listen to my boss, and taught me…

Men's Bible Study :: September 8, 2018 :: Waiting on God

Image
Come join us this Saturday morning and be encouraged as we take a look at what God's Word says about waiting on Him!
So far we've had an in depth look at what the Bible says about Prayer, Studying the Bible, putting on the Armour of God and Spiritual Discipline.

Just like the above, Waiting on God is another key discipline that we must apply daily to our walk with our Heavenly Father. Sometimes it's easy and sometimes it's very hard, but with His strength we are able.
"But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”" -Matthew 19:26 (NKJV)If you are unable to make it to this Bible study, I encourage you to get plugged in to a Bible study where the Bible is being taught and you are being encouraged to push strong in your Christian walk.

Prayer is Crucial

Image
Prayer is crucial in the life of the believer. Prayer keeps us in communication with our Heavenly Father and builds up our relationship with Him.If you've been saved and born again and are not praying, start today.
If you don't know how to pray, don't worry and do not let that stop you.

Simply use the guideline, provided by Jesus, to His disciples and us:  "Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil." -Matthew 6:9-13 (ESV) Don't overthink prayer. Just begin talking to our Heavenly Father from your heart.

Reference the passage of scripture above going line by line if needed. I used to do that and I still do at times.

As you are praying, you may begin to wonder if you are doing it right. Again, don't worry. The Holy Spi…

2018 Prayer Table Kickoff

Image
It has been a couple of years since we've been planning and praying about going out into the streets of San Bernardino and putting up a prayer table.A couple of months ago or so we finally decided on a date, time and location, and it finally came to fruition this morning at 6am.
We set up on the corner of 5th and "E" streets in San Bernardino.
Justin was the first to arrive to location at about 5:55am and immediately encountered a fellow named Jackson who was walking up 5th street.
Mario was next to arrive and when I arrived about 6:10, both Mario and Justin were in deep conversation with Jackson who said he was a believer in Jesus.
A few minutes later, Cesar arrived and so we all ended up praying for Jackson and thanked him for encouraging us. Jackson had no physical Bible with him, but he has the Word of God hidden in his heart 1. That was very encouraging to us. We should all have the scripture hidden in our hearts so that if we don't have a Bible on hand, we can open…
