Rev. Walter Brown Submits
FirSt In Series of 5
The Noble County Ministerial as
sociation is giving their support to
the “Go To Church” page, sponsored
by various business men.
Rev. Walter Brown is submitting
the first sermonette and there will
be others each week from the vari
ous pastors. It is as follows:
FORWARD WITH CHRIST”.
Ex. 14:15 “That They Go Forward”
Long ago someone said, “It mat
ters not so much where we stand as
in what direction we are moving.”
Recently I have been thinking of the
much that is being spoken and writ
ten about all of us getting back to
God. I realize in some sense we are
in need of this for we certainly are
too far away, but not ahead of
Christ. I believe this exhortation to
be timely, to challenge us, let us go
forward with Christ. There is a
similarity between the first Palm
Sunday and this coming one. There
was unrest, war clouds were float
ing on the horizon then.
Today, this post-war world is sick
unto death, the war clouds just
passed over, not out of sight, rest
less, insecure, and uncertain, needs
something to (tie) to. Even H. G.
Wells, among others, emphasizes
“The world is at the end of its
That first Palm Sunday, Jesus
faced Jerusalem, the cross and
death, while the crowds lined his
pathway w.th palm leaves and theii
own clothes and cried out, “Hosanna
to the King.” The Pharisees found
no enjoyment in the process.on or
jubilation. They would quiet His
followers and sain, “Master rebuke
Thy disciples.” He said, “If these
keep silent the very stones will
It seems absurd for stones to

The stone towers of Siloam spoke
to the disciples as Jesus explained
that these 18 were no different from
others, and "Except ye repent, ye
shall all likewise perish.” Yes, the
stones are speaking today. It is a
message of repentance, of confes
sion, of belief, of acceptance of
Christ, of following after Him.
Long ago God’s message to Israel
was, “Go forward.” Again, Christ
is coming down the avenue of time
toward the New Jerusalem. Shall
we follow Him in our day, or face
destruction? He wept over the fate

Almost two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ was born in Judea of humble
parents. Early in life He became a great leader. So profound were His teachings
and so pure His life that He soon drew unto Himself a vast following, and men
called Him Master. For His disciples there was no promise of worldly reward yet
men forsook all and followed Him.
His enemies were cruel men, and powerful. They crucified Himl But Death could
not crush His power. Christ arosel And the truth He had taught became the faith
of thousands—then of millions in every comer of the earth.
Christ's Church has lived through wars and persecutions, it has suffered every
known human torture and violence, and yet it has always survived and grown
stronger. Its strength is the timeless, eternal strength of its Founder.
To understand today the great truths underlying our civilization, we and our
children should know the world's greatest personality—Jesus Christ. We should
gain the world's greatest spiritual treasure—Christianity.
The best place to gain these essentials of wholesome living is in the Church.
