Fruit of D'Vine is the name of our monthly newsletter, based upon the biblical truth that each Christian is a “partaker of the divine nature” (2 Pet. 1:4-KJV), and that those who abide in Christ, the Vine, and are thus living truth, will bear godly fruit just as he did.
JCDA – A Masterpiece For The Master
A Masterpiece for the Master” is exactly what 18 of us (Franco & Christina Bottley from Longwood FL, Matt Cox from Orlando FL, Marc & Maria Dickie from Orlando FL, Joanne Ferdinando from Ormond Beach FL, Jeff Hertel from Milwaukee WI, Daniel LaPointe from Longwood FL, Mike & Dana Lewis from LaPorte TX, Sherrye McGregor Lugo from Williamsburg VA, Virgil & Carolyn Ramey from Pinckney MI, Carlos Rodriguez from Hampton VA, Jon & Christine Touchstone (with sons Caleb and Joshua) from Oviedo FL, Jerry Wheeler from Denver CO, and I) had in mind when we arrived in Longwood FL on Monday, July 11 to join Greg and Paige Rike at their studio, along with their ace assistant, Kristy Jones.
The New(?) Religion of Self-Fulfillment
As you read this, I am immersed in preparing the content of this month’s landmark video production, Jesus Christ: The Diameter of the Ages, which I estimate to be about 20 hours of teaching. The only other things I am doing are sleeping and exercising to rehab my body after my May 2 hip replacement surgery, and eating as much as I can in order to regain the weight I lost as a result of that. On July 8, Elizabeth and I will head toward Orlando with a carload of clothes for the film. On Monday, July 11, we’ll be joined at GRP Studios by about 20 brethren from around the country for a day of set up, followed by six more of filming.
The Only Bridge Over Troubled Waters (Christianity 101)
As you know if you read these monthly communiqués, and perhaps also watch our monthly “WWF” teachings, we plan to film our presentation titled Jesus Christ: The Diameter of the Ages from Monday, July 11 through Sunday, July 17 in Orlando FL. We expect the video to be about 20 hours. Between now and then I am immersing myself in developing the content of this unique production, which we are doing because we know of nothing in Christendom like what we will present. I am also working to rehab myself after last month’s hip replacement surgery, as well as aggressively continuing my naturopathic protocol to destroy the cancer that has been attacking me so that I have sufficient energy to film that many hours of teaching in one week.
You Can’t Tell the Players Without a Program
Major League Baseball is now in full swing here in the good old USA, and the above phrase is one that vendors yell as they move about the crowd hawking their scorecards. Knowing who’s who in the game greatly helps a fan identify with his team and more fully enjoy the action. Were I to put a sub-title on the above, it would be: Are We Christians the Israel of God? To the surprise of too many misinformed brethren, the answer is a resounding NO.
