Rev. Ernest A. Stiles, Sr. minister of Fontana Community Church for almost 24 years, died November 19 at age 97. His memorial service was here at the church on Sunday, November 25.

His life verse was "To know Christ and make Him known", a summary of 2 Corinthians 2:14-17 “…Thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we ...are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task? Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God.”

"Go rest high on that mountain. Your work on earth is done."

..........................................................................

08/10 THE TIME HAS COME... God Almighty literally holds the future of the world in His hands. In His perfect timing, each and every event on this Earth is destined to reveal His Son, Jesus Christ, The Word Incarnate, to a dying planet. Make no mistake, we WILL need to know Him in the coming days.

08/03 THE EXODUS: HOLD FIRMLY TO THE VERY END…There can be no doubt that Jesus, the Son of God Almighty, has literally been parting the waters of our fallen world for millennia, providing the only way for God's chosen people to cross over to the heavenly Promised Land. He's still doing it right this very moment, perfectly in sync with His timetable for mankind. More...

07/28 YOU SHALL HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME (Photo from His Garden of Grace at Fontana Community Church) It is no coincidence that the very first commandment, written in stone by God Himself, was immediately broken physically and spiritually by His chosen people. "Make us gods who will go before us." Exodus 32:1. So begins the sad accounting of a mighty nation who pledged their allegiance to the Almighty, but then began celebrating a god of their own making. More...

07/19 WHOEVER IS FOR THE LORD, COME TO ME...“It’s a golden calf from the Bible, a false idol, the Bull of Wall Street...The piece hints at the Capital system as an idol that we have worshiped for decades and is unfortunately proving to be false," said the artist Errazuriz at the unveiling of his Golden Calf piñata in New York City in 2014. Filled with $1000 in single bills, the glittering, 15ft high, 24ft long beast was whacked with "Communist red" sticks until dollar bills rained down on participants. More...

07/13 BE ASHAMED AND CONFOUNDED…2600 years ago, along the ancient Kebar River in what is known today as the country of Iraq, the heavens opened to the ancient biblical prophet Ezekiel. Of all the places God could have chosen to reveal the end times of humanity, His choice of Iraq definitely confounds us 21st century Christians! More...

07/04 BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO TRUSTS IN THE LORD…God’s Word continues to teach us invaluable lessons and reveal His character. In the 4th month of Tammuz, July 4-August 1 on our 2019 calendar, His judgment falls upon a nation who began under His Word. This should also be a somber month for our nation, who pridefully brandishes the phrase "One nation under God." More...

06/27 IF I PERISH, I PERISH…2500 years ago, on the 23rd day of God’s 3rd month, June 27 on our 2019 Gregorian calendar, His people were warned of an impending attack meant to annihilate the entire nation. One woman stepped forward in faith and changed the course of history. Esther not only became the savior of her people, but she became queen of the largest empire on earth. Just how did she do it? Consider these scriptures: “So I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish! (Esther 4:16). More...

06/16 WHEN THE DAY OF PENTECOST CAME THEY WERE ALL TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE…Thousands from many nations were filled with the Holy Spirit on the day the Almighty had appointed 1500 years earlier. Today, WHO and WHERE these nations are challenges our religious thinking, and provokes our repentance just as it did long ago when 3000 believed and were baptized. More...

06/07 WE ARE SURROUNDED BY A GREAT CLOUD OF WITNESSES…This is a picture of the Great Smoky Mountains smokin'! Thick clouds hang over the mountains after a thunderstorm much like the one we had this morning. This is the perfect picture illustration for today's lesson on faith, set 3500 years ago in the Sinai desert. There was plenty of thunder, lightning, and smokin' clouds hanging on the mountain back then, too.This is God’s Word for us today, appointed for the 3rd day of His 3rd month, June 7 on our 2019 Gregorian calendar. More...

06/01 WHY DO YOU STAND HERE LOOKING INTO THE SKY? Like the disciples gazing into the sky after Jesus' ascension into heaven, we Christians can spend most of our lives consumed with the world around us, even though we claim to be spiritual. Counting forward 40 days from His resurrection on the 16th day of God's 1st month, April 22 on our 2019 calendar, would appoint June 1 as the anniversary of Jesus' ascension into heaven. More...

05/25 “NOW THE RABBLE AMONG THEM HAD A STRONG CRAVING...They buried the people who had the craving.” Numbers 11:4,34. 3500 years ago, during May 25-28 on our 2019 Gregorian calendar, God sent a plague upon a nation who claimed to worship Him but were never satisfied with His provision. God's Word records they complained to death, literally. More...

05/19 I WILL TEST THEM TO SEE IF THEY WILL FOLLOW MY INSTRUCTIONS… On the 15th day of God's second month, May 20, on our 2019 Gregorian calendar, millions of Israelites entered the Desert of Sin. “Sin”, pronounced “Seen”, is a Hebrew transliteration of the word “thorn”. Indeed, God’s provision was viewed many times as a thorn in their religious side. Can we hear God’s eternal Word as it crosses the chasm of time to convict us of our own religious “thorn”? More...

05/12 ON THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD IT WILL BE PROVIDED Mount Moriah’s 4000 year history is literally, out of this world. When Abraham faithfully obeyed God’s call to sacrifice his son on the mount, a ram was provided instead and Isaac was spared. After hearing the words of the Lord on the mountain and the gift of the ram, Abraham made this statement in Genesis 22:14: “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided”. More...

05/05 EVERY MAN BY NAME...The Lord said to Abraham in Genesis 15:5: “Look up at the heavens and count the stars—if indeed you can count them…so shall your offspring be.” Today, astronomers estimate there are ten thousand billion trillion stars. That’s a 1 followed by 25 zeros and lots of exclamation points. 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000!!! More...

04/28 PEACE BE WITH YOU! Following the morning Resurrection of Jesus, this incredible account is recorded in John 20:19-20: “On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you!’ After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.” More...

04/21 THE SPIRIT OF GOD WHO RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.” Romans 8:11. Indeed, the resurrection of Jesus guarantees the resurrection of EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING on Planet Earth! More...

04/18 CHRIST OUR PASSOVER LAMB HAS BEEN SACRIFICED…3500 years ago, God Almighty commanded Pharaoh to free the people of His Abrahamic covenant who were in bondage in Egypt. When Pharaoh refused, God sent 10 plagues, and announced His Deity in every one of them. The 10th was The Plague of the Firstborn, resulting in the deliverance known today as Passover.

More...

04/13 HE WILL PUT THE SHEEP ON HIS RIGHT AND THE GOATS ON HIS LEFT…With only days left until His crucifixion, Jesus ended His teachings with the prophetic parable of Matthew 25:31-46. Addressing the religious house of His day, He announced that when He returns to reign, He will gather His sheep and give them eternal life. But for the goats His words will be "Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels." More...

04/07 HE SET HIS FACE TO GO TO JERUSALEM…Nearly 2000 years ago, Jesus journeyed from the countryside of the Holy Land, up to the ancient city of Jerusalem, one last time. As He traveled through town after town, He constantly surprised all who would listen, teaching them in ways they could never have imagined.

More...

03/31 IN THE BEGINNING GOD… When Apollo 8 carried mankind into lunar orbit for the first time on December 24, 1968, Lunar Module Pilot William Anders began a live message with these words: "We are now approaching lunar sunrise. For all the people back on earth, the crew of Apollo 8 has a message we would like to send to you. 'In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth...’”

More...

03/20 GOD IS WITH US..."Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing; Speak the word, but it will not stand, For God is with us." Isaiah 8:10 has been sung for millennia at this time of the year to celebrate the deliverance of Purim, the salvation of a nation scheduled for total annihilation by their enemy.

More...

03/14 LIKE A BRIDEGROOM COMING OUT OF HIS CHAMBER… Where does one begin when sharing the breathtaking physical majesty and utter brilliance of the handiwork of God Almighty! “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge... In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other...” Psalm 19:1-6. More...

03/09 I AM THE LORD AND THERE IS NO OTHER...The words of God Almighty cross the chasm of time to remind us that His choices are perfect. Incredibly, He ordained King Cyrus of Persia, the Father of Iran, to rebuild the Temple and return His exiled people to Jerusalem. This guaranteed the survival of the line of David, and the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ. More...

02/23 A MAN RIDING A RED HORSE… Over 2500 years ago, the prophet Zechariah's night-visions began with a man riding a red horse. These revelations continue to encourage God’s people, reminding us He is interested in the details of our lives, and is working behind the scenes with a perfect plan: rebuilding His spiritual Temple by reclaiming His people. More...

02/02 BABYLON…COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE...  Many Christians think Old Testament subjects are just history and don't apply to us anymore. We need this timely lesson warning us that the physical and spiritual presence of the infamous biblical Babylon still exists.To this very day, its hold on us greatly affects the outcome of our spiritual and physical future. More...

01/20  A CITY WITHOUT WALLS... God's Word crosses 2500 years with a timeless message for 2019. When a prophet had a vision of “a man with a measuring line in his hand” headed to measure Jerusalem's walls, God dispatched an angel with this chastising message: "Jerusalem will be a city without walls... And I myself will be a wall of fire around it," declares the Lord, "and I will be its glory within." More...

01/06 BREAK CAMP AND ADVANCE… Today God Almighty is reminding us Christians that He has a roadmap in place for ALL His chosen people, even in the 21st century. He's still out front, leading His people forward toward the exit from this world to the Heavenly Promised Land He has prepared for us.. More...
