Christian Newsletter Special Notice

If you have been watching the news, you know that the world is experiencing some chaotic situations. Just when you think, "What other kinds of disasters can possibly happen?" another one does. Sometimes it's hard to put it all in perspective, but Jesus warned us of all that is going on right now.

What most news programs will not tell you is how the things that are happening now are related to the end times. We encourage you to study our End Times programs at Christianity Oasis and decide for yourself what the signs of the times are and how they affect your future and the future of your loved ones.

Below are links to some of our End Times studies that you may find beneficial in answering some of the questions you may have about what is going on in the world today and help you prepare.

Matthew 24:42

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

What We Read Changes Us!

John 13:34

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

At the Oasis, we're always striving to love and be unified as Jesus wants us to be as members of the Body of Christ ...

1 Corinthians 12:25-27

That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

Jesus knew that "schism"isms would be whispered softly by the enemy of our souls to try and weaken our team. Think about it ... If we all practiced 'unconditional love' toward our fellow Christians, all of the time, what strides we could make for the glory of God! So of course, as the enemy of our souls is the prince of this world, he will use any worldly means he can, to break down our accord. He doesn't have to completely sever us to thwart our unity ... Just a little rift here and there, a fracture, a tension, a smirk ... It only takes a tiny little something to move from unconditional to conditional love. Don't forget ...

1 Peter 5:8-9

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom [you should] resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

How many times do you find yourself out of harmony, and you don't understand what happened? That's because the enemy is subtil, and his offerings are subtle, so that oft times we are CONvinced that though we, by thought, word, or deed, may cause only a microscopic fissure, we still love one another. Ahhh, but here is what makes us as Christians different from those who pursue the thought processes of the worldly ...

John 13:34

... as I have loved you ...

Read on ...

John 13:35

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

We are identified as Christians because our love for one another goes above and beyond ordinary old, average, run of the mill love ... We love as Jesus loves us. Be alert to the kisses of the enemy ...

"To be kissed by a fool is stupid, To be fooled by a kiss is worse."
~Ambrose Redmoon

Let the love of Christ take over your heart and let's triumph in unity loving one another, listening to one another, helping one another, encouraging one another, edifying one another, and putting others before ourselves.

Romans 12:10

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another ...

Kindle Some Love

Matthew 24:12-13

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

These are the words of Jesus, as He spoke to the disciples about the end of the world. This is just one of the signs of the End Times, but an extremely important one, because false christs and wars and famine and pestilence and earthquakes and most of the perplexities that are coming to pass just as Jesus spoke of, are occurring outside of our own personal little worlds, but love waxing cold happens right in our own homes.

Jesus encourages us ... Don't let this happen and you'll be saved!

Revelation 2:4

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

You've lost your fervent enthusiasm! Does your heart still leap with joy to serve Jesus (or the least of His [your] brethren), like when you first fell in love with Him? Do you still ask with anticipation what He wants you to do for Him, with your life, with your day, with the sheep He assigns you (the least of His [your] brethren) anymore? Even those dear ones, nay, especially those dear ones within your own home ... Does your love abound for them or has the way of the world turned our warm hearts icy cold? Has it become normal ... Even expected, to be unloving to our ... Loved ones?

Just a few things to contemplate, because the enemy of our souls is crafty and knows all about our weakness, known as original sin. And if iniquity is introduced to a sinner (that is ... us) ever so slowly, chances are, we will not recognize it as sin and it will seem oh so normal. Have you seen this happen before? When sin is thought of as normal, my friends, iniquity shall abound, and as you see in our world today, love is waxing cold, right in front of our own eyes, in our own families, in our own homes.

It's so important that we renew our minds, each and every day, and rekindle our love for Christ, and our love for one another, with grace, and with zeal, and with understanding. Start with your own loved ones, and teach them to be alert to the slow fade from love to iniquity that abounds in the world today ... Endure ... Unto the end!

May God bless you and your love ones, may you kindle the fire of love in your hearts that never waxes cold and may the Holy Spirit work through you, to strengthen the unity and love within Christianity Oasis and everywhere you go.

Valentine Cake Cookies

These are like the fluffy sugar cookies you pay an arm and a leg for at the bakery of your grocery store!

Cookies:

3 cups flour, divided
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1½ eggs
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ cups light sour cream

Icing:

½ cup butter, at room temperature
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons heavy cream
Sprinkles

Yield: 2 dozen cookies

Recipe Note: Make sure and let these sit overnight!

Instructions:

For the cookies:

In a medium bowl, whisk 2½ cups of flour, baking soda, and baking powder; set aside.

Cream the butter and granulated sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla and sour cream and beat at low speed until combined.

Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds, scraping down the bowl as needed. Dough needs to obtain the right consistency for rolling, so add additional flour, 2 Tablespoons at a time, until this is achieved (up to ½ cup more flour). Flatten into rectangle about 1½ inch thick, then wrap with plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator overnight.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or spray them with nonstick cooking spray, set aside.

Generously flour a work area and rolling pin. With a rolling pin, roll the dough out to ¼-inch thickness. Using a 2½-inch cookie cutter, cut out cookies and transfer to a baking sheet. Bake for 7-8 minutes, until pale golden. Immediately transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

For the frosting:

To make the frosting, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and vanilla. Slowly beat in the powdered sugar. Once smooth and creamy, add in heavy cream, 1 Tablespoon at a time until the desired spreading consistency is achieved.

Once cookies have cooled completely, frost and add sprinkles. Allow frosting to set, then store in an air-tight container. Let cookies sit overnight before serving to allow the flavors to develop.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
