Welcome To Charlotte Immanuel Church of All Nations
Greetings From Bishop and Pastor Williams
Healthy Nuggets From Sundays Sermon Entitled "Over the Hills and Through the Woods" by Bishop Rick Williams Sr.
After you turn 40 some give you birthday cards that say "Over the Hill!"
In life you will have tribulations
Saul heard the people singing "Saul has slain his thousands David ten thousands."
Saul didnt like this. An evil spirit from God came on him.
Anything over 200 feet is considered a mountain.
A hill is not on level land.
A lot of times God speaks a word in your life.
Jesus was led to wilderness to be tempted.
Sometimes it seems all hell breaks lose after you have been given a word.
Doubt creeps in suddenly after a good word is given to you.
A hill is a place that's raised.
Some of us go over hills and experience the incline which gives us strength.
We have different terrains in life.
Satan took Jesus high on a mountain.
God wants us to go to different levels.
Hills are a strategy in war. Enemy took more strength and endurance going up a hill.
There is safety on a hill. The air is better there.
On top of a hill is a best place to breath. Its a healthy place.
Your voice echos. Psalms 120 :1 I look to the hill from whence cometh my help.
Theres help on the hill.
God wants us to transition from the valley to the top of hill where there is rest.
Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Jesus was led into the wilderness. Most of time on hill you give praises but in the valley you get dismayed. On the hill you are in the right position but you cant see through the forest for the trees.
In the wild things are wild. Its where the Wild Things Are!
There are times in life that we have wilderness experiences. Depression sets in. You are in the wild and don't want to do anything. Your vision is obscured.
There all kinds of things in the wild. You hear unfamiliar sounds. There is no rest in the wooded area. You cant see. Your breathing is bad. You smell and see death. its not like being on the hill.
You cant see in the woods so you feel like your alone.
In the woods you put on survival helmet.
You feel like you wanna die.
David had experience living in the wild. He had experience killing wild animals.
David helped the city and wondered would they give him up to Saul.
Sometimes people will tell your wilderness experience to others after you have given them your last. They know your secrets and know your business after they just helped you.
God said, " yes David, "they are gonna tell on you.
in life experiences all of a sudden the person you helped is not thankful. They say, "I don't need you.
David left because it was not a safe space.
You must go over hills through the woods. Holy Spirit will lead you to fathers house.
No matter who has scandalized your name God will keep you in the wilderness and lead you in the woods. You wont get stuck in the woods.
You wander round and round in the woods.
in the woods you feel you are the only one going through. Your delusional and theres deception in the woods.
You must put your trust in God no matter what.
God takes you through it and protects you there.
God sustains you. He will bring you through it! He knows that his words will come to fruition. You will be led to the wilderness to be tested to see what you've learned. You may not hear Gods voice. He will send his angels to minister to you.
'During a test in school, the teacher is always silent until the test is over."
Are you in a place you don't know if your in or out of the woods. Know that God will lead you! He is there!
**What a powerful word we received from Bishop Williams this morning!" Lives were transformed and many found their way out of the woods into the light of day! Hallelujah! We rejoice with you!
As Bishop says, "You cant get stuck in the woods." Trust God to lead you.
Right now the Body of Christ is under an open heaven. Slow down and heed the voice of Holy Spirit. He is the one who consoles, comforts, encourages and uplifts. He refreshes and will intercede on your behalf.
He is speaking through Bishop, Pastor Williams and others to assist you in your journey. If you need help & guidance as you journey, "Over the Hill and Through the Woods," please order this life changing message taught by Bishop Williams.
The table is spread and all that you need is laid out there.

Letters of Love & Support To Our Soldiers
If you would like your child to participate, please have them write a little letter of appreciation, the size of notebook paper (Its ok for parents to assist) for example: "Hello! Thank you for protecting our country." Add some cute drawings and if possible, stickers to make it EXTRA special for whomever will be opening it!
If your child feels they're not the best artist, that's okay! They may also cut out coloring sheets, decorate them and paste to note paper! Everyone is creative in different ways!
When you are finished, bring it to church and see Mrs.Shay who will be so excited to take a picture of your "masterpiece" to post it in the weekly newsletter for the whole world to see! That would be AWESOME! So, "Do YOUR best!" ;-)
Please make sure if you use glue its dry before submitting your letter.
The letters will then be given to M.I.T Talita Mapp or Sister Chi Chi to mail to the appropriate parties. Have fun!
Thank you for your support!
Address the letter to "Dear Soldier."
Write a positive letter, showing your support for the soldiers who are putting their lives at risk. Perhaps tell the soldier something about yourself, but nothing too personal. Child's example:"I like strawberry yogurt. How about you?" Teens: Focus the letter on your appreciation for what the soldier is doing and on general topics that would likely be of interest. Perhaps write about sports or current events. Write in a conversational tone as if you were writing to an old friend. No PERSONAL INFO please.
Special Thanks From Bishop Rick Williams Sr.
