The Greatest Commandment
Jesus told us the greatest commandment is to Love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, body, and soul, and the next is like it, to love our neighbor as ourselves.
How is loving our neighbor tied in to loving God? When Jesus told the parable of the sheep and the goats, and he said "Whatever you did or did not do to the least of these,
you did or did not do unto me," just how literally did he mean for us to take it?
Choose your connection speed above and join us for worship and a time in the Word, shared with us this morning by Palemoon Twilight, as she opens Scripture in a way that may open your eyes to a new dimension of what it means to truly love God.
As you may know, we have reached the maximum number of people we can allow in a service. Notice the "40+" under the picture above. This means we had 40, and an unknown number of people over that had to be turned away.
If this is the first you've heard about this, please read the article here.
The setup fee is $1,200. So far we've raised $755. Many thanks to those who have given toward this ministry!
We still need at least $445 this week. The enemy is working hard to spread darkness to this million and growing community from all around the world. Let's do our part to spread the Light!
How can you help? Visit here to help us reach this harvest!
And remember, whatever we do or don't do to the least of these, we're doing or not doing unto Jesus. Thank you for caring for those in need of a Savior.

All For Jesus!
"Whatever you do in word or in deed, do all to the glory of God."
Sometimes we need to remind ourselves that the things we do ultimately shouldn't be for ourselves, but for Jesus; for whatever we do that affects others, Jesus takes it personally.
Jesus, in the parable of the sheep and the goats, said, "I was hungry, in prison, sick, and in need, and you ministered to me; for in as much as you did it to the least of these, you did it unto me."
He goes on to say to others, "I was hungry, in prison, sick, and in need, and you didn't care, you didn't give of yourselves to meet my need; for in as much as you did not do it to the least of these, you did not do it unto me."
For many different reasons, from all over the world, and from every background and situation, people are spending the hours traditionally spent in front of the television, in front of their computers interacting with others in a 3D virtual world community.
Because of financial gain and demonic influences, countless places have been built where these people can go to gamble, have Internet sex, and participate in other things, just like in the physical world, that promise to fill the emptiness inside but make it only worse.
We desperately need to wake up and jump whole-heartedly at any and every chance to reach these million plus people with the Good News that Jesus loves them, he knows them by name, and he desires to have an intimate love relationship with them, set them free from the chains of sin, and fill that emptiness in their souls with his Holy Spirit.
This is why we go into a 3-D virtual world that is full of darkness, bondage, and hopelessness, and demonstrate and proclaim the vibrant life Jesus came to give -- the freedom, forgiveness, and reconciliation to God that comes only through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Currently there are more than 1,254,271 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 10,000 to 40,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift to help cover the server upgrade, and as a monthly partner to help cover the monthly costs.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.

Prayer Requests & Praise Reports
Healing Candie asks us to continue praying for her sister who has been diagnosed with cancer and is being re-admitted to the hospital.
Covering Mary writes, "Please pray a strong prayer covering over my family and me. Witchcraft is being worked against us, to get us into certain situations that they think we should be in. But none of what is going on is right; lots of meddling, disrespect, lying, control, etc. going on. Please ask the Holy Spirit to show us the right and godly way to deal with these situations. God bless your ministry!"
Renewal Fleur writes, "Lately my walk with God has stalled if not gone backwards, the reason being I made a bad choice to walk away from what I believed for someone who ended up hurting me badly now I have been suffering severe depression something I had beaten ages ago thanks to God's help and healing. Please pray the dark thoughts go away and I can once again start walking with God. It is affecting my health in so many ways, my kidneys are playing up causing a lot of pain for me and this time I cant afford the operation to fix it and with that has come weight gain meaning once again I am getting severe pain in my legs meaning I can't get to my real life Christian support group. I have found it hard to talk to God something I used to do daily and I am feeling very isolated in life which is making the down hill fall easy. I know God can heal me again but I need prayer to help me on the right path again."
Pray For Us! Please pray that God will continue to move through this ministry in an even greater measure. Without your prayers, our labor will not have much effect. But when the work of the ministry is backed by prayer, great things will happen!
Visit our prayer center to post requests or pray for those who daily request prayer. If you wish to be a prayer partner and have the requests e-mailed to you, contact us.
