BIND THE STRONG MAN – 2021

It is with great anticipation that we look toward BTSM 2021! This annual event was birthed out of compassion and faith, and has been a mainstay event throughout the last several years for the ASR Ministry. Each year the focus of prayer and supplication, taking our needs before the Lord, and Binding the enemy of our soul and our communities has brought a tremendous amount of understanding within our ministry and beyond. Each year many have traveled great distances to participate, and each event has given great encouragement and strength. This coming year is no exception…and it is our desire to take BTSM to the next level!!

Mark your calendars and set March 5th and 6th aside and plan to participate in Bind The Strong Man 2021!!!

Much more information will be to come, but we have decided to make several changes…the first is that we will have, not only one location, but, five locations across the United States, and we are looking at locations internationally. All of these will be on the same dates with the same theme at each location. Our goal is to bring it close enough for everyone within ASR to participate….and, we do believe that it will impact your life in a great way.

Please set these dates aside and we will share more information in the upcoming months!!

3rd Annual Biker Weekend, Clendenin, WV

If you would ask several different people how to measure success, you would no doubt get several different answers. With each event, comes the desire for everything to go smoothly, everyone to have a good time, to enjoy riding, and have good fellowship and church. However, everything we deem important for success, dims in comparison to how God views it. This year, we had some great fellowship, some awesome riding, and good times. We had some breakdowns on our ride, and I began to be concerned with making sure everyone was having a good time. It was in that moment, God reminded me, it’s not about the ride, it’s about souls. To see a young lady give her heart to God during Biker Sunday service made everything fade in the distance, as we rejoiced with her. Sometimes we have to be reminded, although there is good times when we ride with our brothers and sisters, we do what we do for the harvest of souls. Looking forward to what God is going to do in this ministry!

I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the ASR members that went to the hospital Friday evening to pray for mom, the staff, the patients, and Bro Beall. God met with us there, and I am believing the report of the Lord!

I want to give special thanks and honor to Bro Randy Hennigan, for bringing an anointed Word from the Lord.

It was an honor to become a chapter during our Biker Weekend. I want to welcome our new members of the Appalachian Chapter.

Fall Motorcycle Riding

Fall is here crisper air and falling leaves are the telltale signs that summer is over and fall is here. Before you have to worry about snow and ice, you may need to prepare for wet roads and slippery leaves littering your favorite stretch of road.

Riding your motorcycle in autumn means being prepared for fluctuating temperatures and getting caught in the rain now and then.
Make sure you are wearing adaptable gear, such as a riding jacket with a removable liner and a helmet with close able vents, so that you can adjust to the temperature at various times of day. You may want to consider keeping rain gear with you as well.

Fallen leaves can obscure the surface of the road. Be careful when riding over and through leaves, as they may be covering potholes or imperfections in the road, and wet leaves may affect your wheels’ traction.

You’ll also need to keep your eyes out for wildlife, because some animals become more active during the fall as they are migrating or looking for food before the long winter. At this time of year, for example, deer can be particularly active at dawn and dusk — so keep your eyes peeled and use extra caution. So be prepared so you can enjoy your fall time ride and take in some beautiful scenery. This is my favorite time of year to ride.

Keep it between the lines

Culture of Caring

We are already getting ready for  October!  Where has this year gone?
It has been such a stressful, uncertain year for most.  Our world is completely out of sorts so it seems.  Much sadness with the Covid-19 and how it has,  in one way or another, affected almost each and every one of us in some form or fashion.  Many lives changed forever through the sickness.

The riots, the total disrespect for our government and our leaders.  We must continue to pray for our President and family, our troops, and the ones fighting battles right here close to home.  All the situations our children are seeing and having to deal with are upsetting to them and they don’t understand. The changes in what they are having to face as “normal” now has a huge impact on them. We need to step in and surround them with prayer. Our prayers may be all the covering that many of these people receive.

My heart hurts when I see the chaos in the world.  Seems people have lost their sense of love, respect and compassion for their friends and neighbors.

The bible says that in the last days, perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high,indee, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.  (2 Timothy 3: 1-4)

I believe we are truly in the last days and it is so important to be the care and compassion, the joy in this dark world that so many are seeking.
My desire is to be a witness and if I can help one soul, that is one less lost and going to hell. I pray that the world sees Jesus in us!

Please join in prayer and fasting for the following needs:

This is what our Future Holds

I think we’re in good hands.

We have world changing students at Apostolic Christian Academy, Maryville, TN — Recently, in their Bible class they were asked to write an essay concerning idols in Paul’s day, compared to idols in 2020. Here is one response from an anointed young lady who lives a godly life:

“In the Bible days the people’s idols were shrines, golden images, and gods made out of stone. Today our idols could be our cell phones, tv shows, movies, music, sports, social media, or anything else we put before God. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the moment that we never think about the future. We can get so stirred up in worldly things that we never think about God.

God has called us to be a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and peculiar people!

We can’t let the things of this world overtake our lives. We need to stop worrying about how many followers we have, why he or she doesn’t like me, how many likes I have, and why I can’t play sorts like they can; we need to focus on what God has in store for our life and how we can fulfill the calling he’s placed upon us.

An idol is like an unhealthy food or drink, if you are constantly eating and drinking unhealthy things you are not going to be a very healthy person. When we constantly have idols in our lives it will develop an unhealthy relationship with God. It’s okay to have social media (if you use it in a good way), play sports or watch tv but it does not need to be all we’re concerned about.

Our relationship with God is the most important thing in our life. The Bible says that this world is not our home, we are just passing through. We need to live a life pleasing and acceptable unto the Lord and heading in the right direction. With idols in our way we won’t make it; Our focus needs to be on the path set before us, which is heaven.”

2020 National Rally Offering for East Africa & India

It never fails to amaze me how much this membership loves to support Missionaries. In addition this is not determined by any organizational affiliation, ASR supports regardless, all they need to know is there is a need.

This year in our Thursday night Missionary service Bro Grimh preached from his heart and all of us were moved by his message. Bro Grimh didn’t ask for any special offering to be taken up on his behalf all he did was talk about his burden.

When presented with an opportunity to give during an unscheduled special offering the response was overwhelming and God moved on our hearts in that service, everyone stepped up to the plate and sacrificed. We were able to raise $7,200.00 for the work in East Africa.

I had a message from Bro Grimh just the other day who wasted no time getting those motorcycles into the field and in hands of pastors who were ready, willing and able to go out and spread the gospel, all they needed was the means to do so. I would like to share that massage from Bro Grimh:

1. Hey Bro Thompson. Were buying this bike for one of our Pastors in India. He’s Pastoring 4 Churches. It’s a 2018 Royale 350cc. Used but in great shape. They wanted $1450 for it but we talked them down to $1200. It goes for $2500

2. We have another 2018 same model we can get for the same price. Heres a pic of that one

3. Also getting prices from 2 more Bishops to get them each a bike! This is the pic Bishop Watita from Bungoma sent me. This is not a Boxer, it’s a TVS 100cc

4. He is at the shop in Bungoma now. We are buying 2 bikes

The mgr I’m working with. We have bought from him before. He gave us a good discount.

5. Just bought this one!

6. Just transferred the money to buy this one! These are sweet machines. Best motorcycles we have bought yet, and we got them for $1200 each.

7. Thank You for your Vision to see increase to the Kingdom of God! This is a Honda 125 cc. It is $1225 brand new off the showroom floor!

This is one of my Sons in the Gospel in India. He is our Bishop in Rajamundry area. He oversees several Churches there and hosts our weekly Bible School class online. Many new Pastors are coming to the Revelation of True Salvation under his Ministry. He is a very short man, but very well respected. I’m going to buy this motorcycle for him. He will be able to handle it very well!

This is our Bishop in the Rajamundry area. He’ll be getting the white Honda Together we are empowering some Very Good Men of God to Maximize their Effectiveness!!!

Thank you Bro Grimh for the opportunity to be a blessing to you and work you are so committed to.
