WE ALL NEED TO BE ENCOURAGED!
I have so enjoyed preaching this series of messages on the Manifestation Gifts of the Holy Spirit – when God goes public. It’s no wonder that the Holy Spirit gift of prophecy is so prominent in 1 Corinthians 11-14. I Cor 14:3: “The one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouragement, and consolation” (NET). Last Sunday was especially a blessing as we utilized this precious gift of prophecy for each other. Everyone I know could use a Holy Spirit inspired word of encouragement! I challenge you to continue to be used in this amazing gift of New Testament prophecy this week. Spend time in His Presence listening so you have something worthwhile to say, and then see how many people YOU can encourage and/or comfort this week!
All for His glory! Pastor Jeanette

THE POWER GIFT OF FAITH!
Last Sunday many of you responded to the altar call at the conclusion of my sermon on the Holy Spirit gift of faith (1 Corinthians 12:9a). Beloved, be sure you are expectant – looking for opportunities for God to download this amazing gift that will cause you to stand and declare the purposes of God regardless of any circumstances you face – for things you once thought impossible! Landmark is still here because God gave me this gift in March, 2010. I challenge you to eagerly pursue this wonderful gift of FAITH!
Please join me next Sunday as we look at two more of the amazing gifts of Holy Spirit – healings and miracles. Also, continue to pray and believe for elimination of all debt on our church! I know God is blessing all who participate in this effort.
Love you so very much,

Jesus Prays for All Believers the Night He Was Betrayed:
20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. (John 17:20-23)
Our Prayer in Response to His Prayer (the chorus we sing):
Make us one, LORD, make us one,
Holy Spirit, make us one
Let your love flow so the world will know
We are one in You.
Praying you have an exceptionally blessed day. Love you! Pastor Jeanette

BE STRONG, WORK, FEAR NOT!
The voice of the prophet Haggai thunders down through the ages to us at Landmark as surely as it did to the post-exilic Jews 2,538 years ago. In the second chapter of his little book are three simple, God-given commands. Those same commands are challenging us today:
1. “Be strong (alert and courageous)” - Haggai 2:4
2. “Work!” – Haggai 2:4
3. “Fear not” – Haggai 2:5
God is calling on the body of Christ at Landmark to do these three things. Our strength comes from the LORD and He never commands anything He does not thoroughly equip us to do. So as one person, we arise in strength, we seek Him to know what work He has called us to do, and we refuse to give in to fear or discouragement.
God is working a firm, strong, united foundation so that He can make us capable of bringing the blessings of heaven to earth. He is making us a people who can be radically blessed while still faithfully bearing the cross. Let us be strong, work, and fear not! Amen and Amen
Blessings in His Strong Name!

THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!
Entering into a celebration of the death and resurrection of our LORD Jesus is the most wonderful time of the year for born-again Christ followers. Sunday, March 25, is Palm Sunday, celebrating Jesus’s public entrance into Jerusalem. Wednesday, March 28, is our Holy Week Service which will be all about the cross with a very special communion service. Then Resurrection Sunday is April 1 – a joyful, glorious celebration of the greatest moment in history – the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Please make attendance at these services a priority. You will be blessed!
~February 13, 2018~
Oh how our hearts rejoice as we experience the greatest Love: the Lamb of God, the LORD JESUS CHRIST! No person(s) on earth is capable of the unconditional, radical love shown to us by Jesus! I pray you will personally experience the love of God today like never before. May waves and waves of His amazing love envelope you completely and fill you with hope and joy.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” JOHN 3:16

OUR GOD-GIVEN VISION
“Where there is no vision [no revelation of God and His word], the people are unrestrained.” Proverbs 29:18 (Amp)
God has given me a vision for Landmark – our citizenship is in heaven, but our assignment is earth. We are to act as a funnel for the blessings of heaven to come to earth. All that we do is greatly restrained because we have a great vision! I hope you are joining me in praying every day:
Because Your Presence is my greatest treasure, I live under an open heaven. Therefore, use me, Father, to bring the blessings of heaven to earth. Flow unlimited supernatural resources through me so that Your will is done on earth as surely as it is in heaven.
For Your glory and in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen
Be blessed with the glorious provision of heaven!

PRAISE GOD, WE ARE. . .
Ø Planted in the house of the LORD; therefore, we are flourishing like a palm tree and growing stronger like a cedar! (Psalm 92:12-13)
Ø Trusting the LORD that when He remains silent, it’s because there is a wonderful breakthrough coming for which He is preparing us! (Matthew 15:21-28)
Be extravagantly blessed in the Strong Name of Jesus!

WOW – IT’S DECEMBER ALREADY!
I have discovered that time flies, whether or not you’re having fun! December already – and what a wonderful weekend this is going to be. Evangelist Kim Klaudt will be here to minister the word and play his bass guitar (amazingly) during our morning worship. Then we’re having our fabulous Holiday Feast featuring not only wonderful food but a Christmas carol sing-along. (I love the carols!) And you can even do your Christmas shopping at our meal – many varied items will be on sale at very good prices! So what a wonderful day Sunday will be as we meet with the people of God to worship God and share a delicious meal together. Nothing is better than that! Whatever you do, don’t miss this Sunday!
BLESS YOU, BELOVED!!

Please join me in giving generously to the special Christmas Blessing Offering for our three missionary families: C.J. and Carrla Rich, Gerald and Clara Brown, Ramon and Carol Babilonia - three very deserving couples. There will be a special envelope for your gift in the bulletin again the next two Sundays (Nov. 27 and Dec. 4). Parents, have your children earn some money to give - teach them the joy of giving. I'm praying every child, teen, and adult will participate in this special opportunity to bless our dear missionary families.
God bless you with a wonderfully peaceful and joyful Thanksgiving.
Thank you so much for your godly generosity!

THANK YOU, LORD!
Many of us have prayed passionately and constantly for revival - a great move of God at Landmark – for the manifest Presence of the LORD! (That simply means His Presence is so powerful that we can physically experience it.) Last weekend we experienced the wonderful Presence of God in amazing ways. But this can be unsettling for any of us not familiar with unusual responses to that Presence. Many find it impossible to stand, some cry, some laugh – but everyone who has an intimate experience with the Presence of the LORD will have a physical reaction! You can’t come into contact with the very Presence of God and not have a reaction, any more than you could hold your hand in a fire and not have a physical reaction.
Satan would love to rob us of the Presence of God by causing us to fear and doubt – he has come, after all, to “steal, kill and destroy”. The last thing he wants for any of us is to have a life-transforming encounter with the Living God! But we are not people who give in to fear! What we absolutely know is that “IF IT’S FROM GOD, IT’S GOOD”.
There’s no doubt whatsoever that the revival we experienced last weekend was from God. Therefore, we know that it’s good and it’s ours! As people of faith who want everything God has made available, we bow to His will and His ways – and we praise Him for everything He has done or will do in our lives individually and as a congregation. God is not in the business of making us comfortable – He is making us like Jesus! Praise God for His transforming Presence!

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.” (Psalm 23:5)
I love the fact that God is totally redemptive. There is no circumstance on earth that He cannot redeem – no mess He cannot bless. The wonderful truth is that the stronger the enemy, the greater the feast. Beloved, know that you can sit undisturbed in the presence of all your enemies – everything satan has brought against you – and you can feast. You can eat from the LORD’s table more than you’ve ever eaten before – see more of His glory, His majesty, His holiness, His love! When our enemies hear us continuing to praise and love the LORD, it torments them instead of them tormenting us! Praise God! Allow your difficult circumstances to push you farther into the arms of God where there is incomparable peace and glorious joy! God bless you in amazing and personal ways today is my prayer for you.

Happy Birthday To The Love Of My Life! My beloved husband and pastor, Fred Kelly, is 73 today. We have been married over 52 years and God has blessed us beyond words. We are the parents of an amazing son and daughter and the grandparents of outstanding grandchildren for whom we are so grateful. I was raised in a preacher’s home and I have had the blessing of being with church people my entire life, but I have never seen another man who has more of a pastor’s heart than my dear husband. He has never asked anything from people – he only wants to serve and encourage. He always thinks the best of everyone – and he has expressed that in hundreds of encouraging, handwritten letters through the years. He has never sought more recognition or a different vocation – he is happily content with loving the people God has sent to Landmark Church – being a pastor who cares and prays for all his people. He has truly modeled servant leadership. So I take this day to honor him – his great heart – his wonderful heritage as a pastor. Happy birthday, my beloved. I am privileged to be married to you and I will love and honor you forever!

Our theme this year is “HIS PRESENCE IS PURITY AND POWER (Matthew 5:8 and Acts 1:8). Our prayer this year is: “Father, I pray the fruit of the Holy Spirit (purity) will grow and the gifts of the Spirit (power) will flow through my life this year. For Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory! Amen”
We are pursuing everything God has made available for us – we need every gift and enablement God has provided to radically expand His Kingdom in Peachtree Corners and around the world. We are “working out what He works in” – Philippians 2:12-13. We are careful not to grieve (purity) or quench (power) the Holy Spirit.
There is an amazing calling on your life and the life of Landmark Church. To fulfill our God-given destiny, purity and power are essential. In my meditation on this theme, the Holy Spirit has shown me a brilliant place where purity and power come together – and I am so excited to be sharing about that this Sunday and next, May 1 and 8, LORD willing. Don’t miss! You’ll be blessed!

OUTRAGE IS NOT A STRATEGY! I read those five words yesterday, and the Holy Spirit shot them like an arrow into my spirit. There is no lack of ready examples of things over which we as believers should be outraged. Our culture has become so very anti-Christian and anti-God. Good is called evil, and evil is called good. But Romans 12:21 tells us to “overcome evil with good”. No matter how strong evil appears to be, God is stronger! His hand is not shortened that He cannot save and redeem – everything is still under the feet of Jesus! These are awesome times in which to serve the LORD. We are not huddling in our sanctuaries, anxiously praying for God to get us out of this mess; we are boldly and righteously influencing society by being the light and salt God has equipped us to be! Let’s be sure the world knows Who we stand for and not just what we’re against. Be encouraged, dear ones; I’ve read the end of the Book and WE WIN!
So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.

Beloved, I’m praying for you on this beautiful day the LORD has made. The scripture God gave me for you today is Psalm 115:14-15:
14 May the Lord give you increase more and more, You and your children. 15 May you be blessed by the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
I agree in that Holy Spirit-breathed prayer – that you and all your family will be highly favored and experience the limitless provision and blessing of the LORD in every part of your lives!
Because of His amazing grace, Pastor Jeanette

WOW! What a glorious Resurrection celebration we had last Sunday! I have celebrated the resurrection of Jesus on what we call Easter Sunday all my life, but never more joyfully and victoriously than last Sunday at Landmark! The entire day from the first word and note to the last prayer was powerfully anointed by the Holy Spirit. We truly had a Resurrection Sunday! I am so grateful to God for His faithful Presence – our greatest treasure. I pray His resurrection power will be magnified in your life, beloved, as you live to “display His splendor” (Isaiah 61:3b)!
“If the Spirit of Him Who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He Who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit, Who lives in you”. Romans 8:11 (NIV, 1984)
Be blessed – spirit, soul and body – in the Mighty Name of the Resurrected LORD!
- March 24, 2016 -
Beloved, God bless you during this very special week in the church’s calendar. On Palm Sunday, the plan of redemption conceived before time began by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit was set into motion by Jesus. This week would include a parade, a mockery of justice, betrayal and unspeakable suffering, and finally the greatest miracle of all time, the resurrection of our Lord! What a plan – what a week – what a blessing! I pray this week will be of special significance to you as you look at the cross – the greatest demonstration of the love of God, and the resurrection – the greatest demonstration of the power of God. All for you!
You are so loved!

Beloved, Last night at Prayer Meeting/Bible Study I taught out of Psalm 103 – which I love. I am so amazed at how God watches over His Word – the inspiring words of a shepherd boy, pouring out his heart to God over 3000 years ago, can still bless me! Just think of the benefits that are ours: “He forgives all our sins, heals all our diseases, redeems our life from the pit and crowns us with love and compassion; He satisfies our desires with good things so that our youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103:3-5). What amazing benefits! An inferior covenant does not have superior benefits – so under this marvelous New Covenant of Grace, the benefits are even more spectacular! Hallelujah! Meditate on these remarkable benefits of being a child of the Living God and be blessed. I’m praying for you.
Multiplied grace and peace!

Beloved, I’m sitting here in my church office, looking out at the rain and traffic (needless to say, there’s always traffic on Holcomb Bridge Road) - thinking about and praying for you. The greatest honor of my life is being your pastor. I am a servant-leader; I am here to serve and bless you! My greatest dream and desire is that each of the members of this body at Landmark reach their highest destiny in the Lord – that’s my dream – that your God-given dream will be realized.
Be blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus! Seek His heart first thing every morning – oh how He loves you. It is impossible to exaggerate the goodness and love of God. May your heart be open to receive His love, may His peace totally fill your heart, and His favor overwhelm every part of your life.
I look forward to worshipping with you next Sunday – believing God for an outpouring of His glorious Presence that will meet every need. Come with high expectations – He is faithful!
Because of His great grace,
