“REPENT OR PERISH”
Ezekial 3:17 “Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto
the house of Israel: Therefore hear the word at my mouth, and
give them warning from me.”
I am sure you realize there is a grave responsibility placed on
the shoulders of every child of God. I feel the responsibility God
has placed on my shoulders and have committed to the gospel
During this past year, many major cities have exploded with
some of the worst racial riots and outbreaks of violence and
lawlessness in America’s history. This lawlessness has jarred vast
areas and communities. Curfews, business houses being closed and
people being killed seems to be the order of the day.
“POVERTY IS NOT OUR REAL PROBLEM”
We face a problem of more than just the color of people’s skin,
poverty and ghettos, but we see that beneath the surface of all
our troubles is the sin-infested heart. I was reared in an area of
poverty. We never had the luxuries of life that now are considered
necessities and yet we never thought of turning to riots,
demonstrations or demanding something that didn’t belong to us.
Poverty is not the problem - the problem is sin. America doesn’t
need a war on povertly like it needs a war on sin. We need the
great Savior more than we need the great society;more than we
need medicare, we need Christ’s care; more than we need social
security, we need God’s security.
During 1968, we have seen many of our cities rocked with
violence, anarchy and lawlessness. More than 100 people have
been murdered and millions of dollars of property destroyed or
damaged. Our police, National Guard and even the Army has
been called out to try to restore law and order. We see the real
problem is not the ghettos, but people’s hearts, cancerous with
sin, adulterated with iniquity and infested with evil. The only
thing that can change the heart is the message of Jesus Christ! We
Christians are the only ones that have this message. We must use
it or lose it, preach it or perish.
I think we are up to our ears in the slop of “Coffee House”
theology, so called intellectualism, hippies and beatniks! We need
the old-fashioned Gospel: We need the old-fashioned prayer
meetings, a return to God and his blessed book.
May we realize today that America must return to God. I have
had my fill of these bearded Messiahs from the dark domain-these
‘shaggy-dog’ philosophers, these sign-carrying humanitarians, the
arty atheists, many of whom are emotionally ill, and are trying to
tell us that Christ and the word of God are no longer relevant for
this hour. Many of them are afraid to carry the torch of freedom
lest they be burned by its flames. They would give away in the
name of humanity all the freedoms and things we enjoy as
Americans and most of all as Christians. The strength of America
will go like the dust in a wind if we continue to listen to these
chicken-livered voices of compromise and indifference who would
cry out to us, “rather Red than dead” or “peace at any price”.
Patrick Henry said, “Is life so sweet or peace so dear that it
should be purchased at the price of slavery and chains? Forbid it,
almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as
for me, give me liberty or give me death.” The only way that we
will have this freedom spoken of by Patrick Henry and bought
and paid for by many who have gone before us is by a return to
God. Jesus said, “and if the Son makes ye free, ye shall be free
It has been said the reason South America has not risen to the
same height of prominence as North America is because people
came to South America in search of gold, but the people of North
America came in search of God. Gold and God, that is the
Friends, America will be salvaged only if we keep our eyes on
God and not on gold, on the Christ and not cash, on the
Almighty God and not the almighty dollar, on Jesus and not jets,
on our master and maker and not on the moon, on the Holy
Spirit and not space, on the Rock of Ages and not the ages of the
rocks. This is a call to repentance. A call to “repent or perish”.
We must hear and heed the message of II Chronicles 7:14-“If my
people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face, and tum from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will
hea 1 their land”.

All commodity program
signups will be held during the
same period--February 3,
through March 21. Signup
applications indicate the
farmer’s program intentions,
including the extent of his
participation in the programs.
Under the feed grain
program for 1969, farmers may
earn diversion and
price-support payments as well
as qualify for price-support

formal arrangement of whte

available to all program

Farmers who plan to install
a conservation practice under
the Agricultural Conservation
Program are reminded by John
S. Montgomery, Chairman of
the Agricultural Stabilization
and Conservation County
Committee, that application
should be made before the
conservation work is begun if
Federal cost-shares are to be
paid. The initial sign-up period
is January 2-31 and to be sure
of consideration requests
should be filed during this
This is very important,
according to Chairman
Montgomery. He said that
application for approval of an
ACP practice must be made
beforehand so that the county
committee can budget the
limited funds available and setf
aside funds for practices
approved for farmers.
Under the ACP, the Federal
government shares the cost of
farm conservation practices
needed in the public interest.
The program is administered
by the Agricultural
Stabilization and Conservation
Services, and each local
application comes before the
wheat crop allocated for
domestic use. No diversion
payment is available for
While the signup period for
1969 commodity programs will
extend through several weeks,
the Chairman urges that
farmers who wish to take part
in yhe programs file their
applications as soon as they
decide on 1969 production
plans. “Time has a habit of
getting away from us
sometimes before we know it,
so it’s a good idea not to delay
in filing program intentions,”
