Pastor Jeremiah

"Shining In 2014 - God Has A Paradise"

Who Is God?

An age old question that has made men and women throughout time have tried to explain who God is and is the Bible real.  Ultimately the answer must first start with faith that GOD is and is a rewarder of those that seek him.

 Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

“I AM” there is no “I AM NOT”
HE IS. Because there is an “I AM” there is a “YOU ARE”. If you don’t believe “HE IS” and then you will become the “I WAS”.

When Moses was confronted with the true and living GOD and was sent to the Pharaoh of Egypt to set the Israel nation free, he asked God, who do I tell the children of Israel has sent me?

Exodus 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am

When Jesus was traveling one day with his disciples He asked the question, who do men say that I am?  The disciples responded with various names such as John the Baptist, Elijah, or a prophet.  Then He put them on the spot with the question, who do you think that I am.  Peter answered that you are the Christ.

Scripture: Mark 8:27&29

27 And Jesus went on with his disciples, to the villages Caesare's Philip'pi; and on the way he asked his disciples, "Who do men say that I am? " 

29 And he asked them, "But who do you say that I am?"

Prayer Ministry





The one thing that holds this ministry and our work together is our prayer ministry headed up by Deidre Schilling and the prayer team known as the Twelve Disciples.  Did you know that our prayer register has over 300 requests to date?  Each of the names is called out to the Lord everyday not just on Wednesday.  It is a humbling thing to call out 300 names to the Lord knowing that you need as much prayer as any of these names.  Many people will be touched by the Lord through Hands Up Ministry who otherwise might never attend church.

Hands Up Meetings




Are You Available?



Commerce Center and IS are now having meetings weekly on Wednesdays.  Contact is Deidre Schilling.



Manufacturing Center /“The Light” at Park 500: Praying for revival of meetings at these locations.

Hands Up Christmas 2013

Today December 18, 2013 a wonderful group of people from HUM representing employees of Philip Morris and Altria, delivered Christmas gifts to fourteen families in Gilpin Court.  It was truly a wonderful day to be able to minister through giving to these families.  We were able to pray with each family and even had many personal needs prayed for at the request of the people which was truly special to be used of God. 

It is because of you the wonderful people who gave that made this special day possible.  I know the Lord will bless you for your giving, sharing and caring.  Just remember 2014 Christmas starts today in our hearts.  Please view the pictures at the link here.

Give your best for Jesus on His birthday in 2013!

I hope each of you will consider helping the efforts of HUM to minister to needy families in 2014.  The children we touch today will be our leaders tomorrow.


   "Put Christ first and you will never be last"


1 Thessalonians 5:24

King James Version (KJV)

 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.


Who Is God ? (continued from page 1)

Before I ask you the same question, let’s understand who Jesus said that He is, was and is to come.

        Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. (He has always been God)

        Revelation 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: (He will always be God.)

        John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved. (He is the door to Heaven and there is no other way.)

        John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  (He is our passage to Heaven)

        John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. (He is the hope of this present world that walks in darkness.)

        John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. (He is the ransom for our souls and He gave His life freely.)

        John 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. (He is our spiritual nutrition and health to our body.)

(Continued next column)

Who Is God ? (continued from previous column)

        John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. (He is our source and without Him we can do nothing.

        John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. (Before the Patriarchs of the Bible He was the I AM.)

        John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. (He is the power and glory of GOD.)

        John 19:21b He said, I am King of the Jews. ( He is King of Kings to both Jews and Gentiles.)

       Acts 9:5a And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus. (He is the Lamb of God and the sacrifice for our sin.)

        John 10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God. (He is the Christ the Son of the Living God.)

Now that you have read who Jesus says that He is, what say you? 

Jesus asks, who do you say that I AM?
