Pastor Haymon’s Friday Communication


As a bit of a reminder of last Sunday’s morning message, check out Satan’s frightful Glory Shift:

Ezekiel 28:15-19 (ESV)

15 You were blameless in your ways

from the day you were created,

till unrighteousness was found in you.

16 In the abundance of your trade

you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned;

so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God,

and I destroyed you, O guardian cherub,

from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Your heart was proud because of your beauty;

you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor.

I cast you to the ground;

I exposed you before kings,

to feast their eyes on you.

18 By the multitude of your iniquities,

in the unrighteousness of your trade

you profaned your sanctuaries;

so I brought fire out from your midst;

it consumed you,

and I turned you to ashes on the earth

in the sight of all who saw you.

19 All who know you among the peoples

are appalled at you;

you have come to a dreadful end

and shall be no more forever.”

What a fate! What a dreadful shift of God-given Glory! Remember the message premise:
Every time God gave His people glory, they stopped giving Him glory!
May the indwelling Presence and Glory of God inside (See John 17:22) keep us from such disaster! His Glory is never fixed, but it dwells with meekness and contrition! It hovers near those who remain called out and sold out to God’s holiness. Let us savor, cherish, and rejoice in the Glory of God all day long! 
Greetings, brothers and sisters of CAC!

I hope this brief greeting finds you well and prospering in the work the Lord has put under your responsibility! I can tell you this, God is opening doors left and right and providing opportunities that are extraordinary to make inroads into the hearts and minds of lost souls.

Each day that passes finds me more excited about the strides that are being taken by God’s people to step into positions of credibility, availability, and servanthood in the surrounding ripe harvest field. I could not be more thankful for the large group of CAC saints that gathered last Wednesday night to complete their chaplaincy applications. We are soon going to be among the largest group of chaplains in any congregation of our size! What does that mean to you and me? Most likely, our congregation will not stay this size long! With so many surrendered to spiritual leadership, trained in best practices of human relations, and prayed up with a burden for lost souls, we are about to see the landscape shift drastically in our regular church attendance!
The training we will receive at 10:00 tomorrow morning at CAC, “Altar Worker’s Seminar,” will be yet another opportunity to reinforce our collective ability to care for those who are shackled under the heavy burdens of sin and destined for eternal torment. May God help us to reach them before it’s too late! As I told several people this week, it is important to know what to say to those who are lost but quite another to know what to pray for them! It is possible to say the right thing and, given the opportunity to pray, pray the wrong thing! Conversely, it is possible to say the wrong thing yet, with a heart filled with love and a desire to be a blessing and a soul winner, we can still pray the right thing! The prayer component in our relationship with Almighty God, as well as with our fellow man is a high priority. Thank you for carving out time during the precious hours of your weekend to engage in this extremely vital part of the Great Commission!

Thank you for taking time to read this message. I look forward to seeing each and every one of you this Sunday for special, outpouring Services, with our guest, Evangelist Brian Norman. Bring a friend! (I’m attaching a special Evite graphic to this email for simplified sharing).

Your loving Shepherd,

Pastor Haymon

P.S. I’m enjoying the last 48 hours prior to crossing into my semi-centennial! Pray, Saints!

He married LaRonda Ellard, in 1992. He earned a bachelor of arts in Communication from the University of Denver the same year. In 1997, Don became senior pastor.
