Elders: William ‘Bill’ H. Searcy

Philosophy of Eldership:

An elder is a servant-leader and a wounded-healer. The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum of perfectly sculpted statues. My center of gravity is Jesus Christ as I understand Him through the Bible as my ultimate authority. My goal in life is to develop the mind of Christ and translate that Mind into flesh and blood relationships with other people.  The death of my first wife in a tragic car accident overseas and numerous other trauma in my life deepen my capacity for empathy and understanding. I can sit with pain and I know loss. These have given me breadth of understanding, a depth of empathy and the ability to sit as a wounded healer with wounded people and give hope to suffering individuals and families. The best scriptural example of what an elder, a shepherd, is comes from Psalm 23 – to feed, nurture, protect and guide God’s flock. The nature of all ministry is healing, guiding, sustaining, reconciling and nurturing.

  1. My prayer request: I pray that God will give everyone there eyes to see and ears to hear, knowledge and wisdom in understanding the Holy Words of the Almighty God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). Time is short !!!

    What’s going on in this World? Most of cain’s descendants are here (kenites).

    I can only plant a seed: You and God must make it grow and He gives everyone free will to Believe anything they want.

    Zechariah 14, V2: For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
    Google EMP, Electro Magnetic Pulse. Electrical (computers, cars, electricity, etc) will not work.

    The Temple was built about 15 or 20 years ago for the antichrist and it is setting on that Rock, just waiting for the anti-christ. The stock Market will crash and the EU was formed with 10 Nations (then there was 13 and now 19) and will go belly up (bankrupt), then the deadly wound of the 10 nations is in play.
    Revelation 12,V9: And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out unto the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. There will be World Peace for 3 ½ days (Daniel 9, V27).

    My KJV Bible talks about 3 Generations (40th 70th 120th). If we are in the 70th Generation (Parable of the Fig Tree). Psalms 90, V10 The days of our years are threescore (60) years and ten (10); and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

    Note: If you believe in the Rapture Myth (Man’s Tradition) and want to be the first to go (two in the field working), you will worship the antichrist:.
    II Thessalonians 2, V11: And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
    Matthew 7, V23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity. Those written in the Book of Life of the Lamb will be blotted out.

    Revelation 3, V10 Because you have kept the Word of My patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation (arrival of satan, the antichrist in Israel), which shall come upon all the world, to try them who dwell upon the earth.

    Revelation 22, V21 The Grace of our LORD Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen …
