#55 Reverend George McCaulley

A special treat for me today to have my dad, George McCaulley, visiting from Florida!  We’ve actually kept this video back for a while to use when we had a break in our schedule.
My dad is a retired Baptist minister and also retired from work as a Chaplain at the Water Front Mission in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.  
George shared with us some things about his early life.  When he was a young boy his dad became paralyzed and so his mother sent him away to live with one of his brothers.  He had gone to church as a child but what he heard was nice stories and not saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.  The Lord worked in his life when he heard the true Gospel and it changed his life.  He remembers the song, “Wherever He Leads, I’ll Go.”  He says The Holy Spirit of God got a hold of him and he began to follow Jesus and surrendered to the ministry.  He preached in several states and then he moved to Kentucky and started a mission church and the Lord blessed it.  He was the first pastor there of that church that’s now been going for 42 years. 

Brother George puts the questions to Manasseh and asks him about his upbringing and church background. Manasseh also talked about his experiences of going to churches where they were not preaching the truth and how God leads him to places where the truth of the Gospel of Jesus is preached.  We from all sides of the world have this experience and have to keep our spiritual eyes open and listen to God’s Holy Spirit guide us to the right place where we will hear the real truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Brother George states that there is only One Word of God and only One Lord Jesus Christ and people who do not know Jesus don’t understand that, but people who do know him know that this is true.  Jesus is alive and talks to us in our spirits.  For the person who comes to know the Lord there is no doubt he is real and alive today!
We had a nice surprise visit from Jessy Cresspo, OmniJess, who told us about her newest song at the time, “Longing for Yourself.” She sang a few lines for us and talked about the meaning behind the song in how so many today think only on their own wants and needs.  
Brother George said that God gave his all for us and we need to give everything we are to him.  We had a nice visit and hope you will enjoy our discussion :)

Lead Scripture:
Psalm 28:7
“7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song will I praise him.”
When we realize how God loves us and protects us cannot help but praise him.

Scriptures from Interview:

II Timothy 3:16-17
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Brother George says:  We are not saved by good works but we are saved by Jesus Christ to do good works.  The natural man does not understand these things until we come by faith in repentance to the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved.  He does this one on one individually.

When a baby is born they are not full grown and neither is a Christian.  We know as a Christian that all of our sins are forgiven; past, present and future but still as Children of God we still slip and fall short of what God wants us to do.  I even pray every day, God, if there’s any sinful way in me please remove it.  

Matthew 28:18-20
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
