ISAIAH 45:6 & 7
I am the LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
WELCOME TO RESCUE BAPTIST CHURCH
“Sinners are welcome at this church. We are a local body of the Lord Jesus Christ. As you spend time with us, you’ll soon discover we’re an imperfect church, with an imperfect pastor, yet by God’s undeserved grace, we preach, believe, and know the perfect gospel of our never-failing Lord Jesus Christ. We call His name Jesus for He shall, (not might, not maybe) but shall save His people from their sins, and every sinner that trusts in Christ is complete in Him, saved
to the uttermost” HEBREWS 7:25 (copied)

By God’s all-wise appointment, our assemblies are the life, the food, and the nourishment of our souls. It is the main way whereby we publicly identify with Christ and His Gospel. We evidence our love for Christ by our loyalty and support of one another in opposition to all false worship. Many things will rise up in competition to the diligent attendance of our assemblies. We must recognize and refuse to give in to anything that is opposed to what Christ commands. The total falling away of a graceless professor always begins with this neglect, this disassociation with God’s people (Heb. 10:25). John Owen
“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile” (Psalm 32:1-2).
“Forgiven, covered, not imputed! The accumulation of these synonyms not only sets forth various aspects of pardon, but triumphantly celebrates the completeness and certainty of the gift.
Forgiven, to lift and bear away a load or burden.
Covered, to cover over, as one might do with some foul-smelling odor. What do you do with a dead, rotten foul smelling carcass? Dig a hole and drop it in and cover it over. So a man’s sin is covered over and ceases to be an evidence before the Divine Eye that sees all things. He himself casts a merciful veil of the blood of Jesus over it and hides it from himself.
A similar idea is included in that last word not imputed; the sin is not reckoned or charged. God does not write it down in his great book on the debt side of the man’s account.
These set forth the great and blessed truth that a man’s transgressions may become, in so far as the Divine heart and the Divine dealings with him are concerned, non-existent!
