"Come, Let Us Exalt His Name Together"
By Jed Koch | March 23, 2014
Bro. Patrick Groves, evangelist to Africa, preached from the book of Acts about putting the word of God into practice.
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

As the leaves begin to fall from the trees I am reminded of Ecclesiastes 3; “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”.
Our church has been so fully blessed by God through the years and I am sure His hand has guided people to The Rock of Salinas for positive growth and healing. But, we cannot always gain; loss is a common undesirous trait of life that we must deal with on a more frequent basis than most of us would like.
The reason I write such somber words is because Pastor Koch’s father has recently passed away. Please keep the Koch family in your prayers as we go through this difficult time. Also pray for Bro Mader and his wife as they have taken on the responsibility of running the church while the Koch’s attend to family matters. Our church is also grateful to Pastor Danny and Lisa White from Cornerstone United Pentecostal Church, our neighboring church in the Watsonville / Freedom area. Rev. D. White has been preaching up a storm.
God is good all the time, and all the time, God is good!

Look at your arm, hand, fingers. Look in the mirror. What do you see? Flesh. We live in this vessel that is made up from the dust of the earth. We are part of this world. Too often we are living in this world and not living in the Spirit. This flesh complains loudly. “I am too tired!” “I have a headache!” “Make me feel good!” “Entertain me!”
The flesh demands and demands and demands. Saint of God, what do you hear? What do you listen to? Does your flesh tie you down to the tracks of this world? That demon train is barreling down. The enemy won’t stop for anybody.
The Spirit is calling, calling, calling. Soft and quiet comes the urgings from the Holy Ghost. “Come to me, child.” “Pick up my word, precious.” “Lay your worries down at my cross.”
The world is all around us. Keep your eyes open. Ask for discernment. LIVE IN THE SPIRT NOT IN THE WORLD!
