HAPPY NEW YEAR!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Can you believe it It’s 2015 and we are celebrating our new beginnings
with a brand new magazine! It is truly “out with the old and in with the new” and we believe
that you will enjoy all these changes. One aspect that will never change is our love and adoration
for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 2015 is such a special year and we are in great expectation
for all that God has in store for all of His children. Our leadership and prophets, Bishop and Elect Lady
Owens, have already been stirring us up with great anticipation here at Immanuel’s Temple Systems of
Church. So guess what We are here to pass the message on to you, our partners: God is looking to bust
out in 2015!
What are you looking for in this new year Something for your family A financial breakthrough
Peace in your home Or maybe you want a deeper walk with Christ Rest assured and know that as
long as it comes from God then you better receive it! He’s already on record for doing great things! This
word was given to us and we are elated to pass these glad tidings on to you! God has been anticipating
your arrival into this new year and just as our Elect Lady has stated “God is going to do great exploits
among us!” Are you one in the number We sure hope so because God is getting ready to prove Himself
God in somebodys’ life and we don’t want you to be left out! The King of Kings has a proven track
record that you can trust in and know that you will not be made ashamed!
So make your prayers known because the Lord surely does hear them! Wow - what a miraculous and
awesome time we are living in while preparing for 2015! Let’s start this year off with a BANG! What
you’ve been waiting for all your life is about to happen, so on your mark, get set, and GO! Give God the
praise and take off running! We pray that this is your year because we have been given the inside scoop
that God is up to something good!
HWe live in a time and a society that
is draining and whatever peace you
have, this world constantly pulls on
it. Peace is what our world is starving for, so
much that there have been many that have died
from the lack thereof. When God created man
in His image and His likeness, He formed him
of the dust and then He breathed the breath
of life into man and he became a living soul.
The breath of life, if we can label it, is peace.
Peace is what keeps the spirit, soul, and body
in harmony. Once you lose your peace you will
begin to have a storm on the inside of you.
The definition of peace is the absence of
disturbance; freedom from disturbance; free
from anxiety or distress. When you allow a
disturbance in your life to penetrate your mind
and heart then you lose your peace. There is
only one that can give you peace and that is
Jesus. One of His names is the Prince of Peace
therefore if you are in need of peace you can
go to Him. You will not find peace in a man
or a woman because they do not have it to
give. Falling in love with someone and human
affection will not bring peace in your life; only
Christ can give you peace.
Without peace you simply just exist. By
allowing your heart to be troubled, anxious,
worried, or full of fear you are hindering the
blessings of God in your life. The lack of peace
brings about the wrong decisions and you
will find yourself out of the will of God. The
formula for peace is prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving. Once you let your request
be made known to God, leave it in His hands
and allow God to work on your behalf. Focus
your mind on God and the Prince of Peace will
come to your rescue. Peace is like a watchman
and will not allow trouble to enter into your
heart and mind. There is nothing more valuable
than your heart and mind and you must not
give these away so easily. Lock your heart and
mind in the peace that passes all understanding
which is in Christ Jesus.
Thessalonians 2:3 says, “Let no man
deceive you by any means: for that
day shall not come, except there come
a falling away first, and that man of sin be
revealed, the son of perdition;” The coming
of Christ will be preceded by a “falling away.”
Who’s falling away People who once believed
and stood for sound doctrine!
The great falling away is defined as apostasy.
Webster defines apostasy as, “an abandoning
of what one has believed in, as a faith, cause,
principles, etc.” What causes apostasy
Deception! Pride! Weakness!
Be careful when you change your mind from
steadfastness. There are principles you lived
your life upon and all of a sudden you decided
to fall away from them. Principles you not
only lived by, but didn’t mind dying for. Don’t
let your heart and emotions guide you to an
alternate lifestyle that determines your destiny:
among the great falling away!
Jeremiah 17:9 says, “That the heart is deceitful
above all things, and desperately wicked: who
can know it” You really don’t know how
wicked you can become when your heart has
fallen away from doctrine of the true God, not
the new god you have convinced yourself you
Apostasy is not a defect in natural things,
such as in the state or civil government,
but in spiritual matters such as falling from
“sound doctrine, instituted worship, church
government and holy living.” Apostasy may
start gradually but will perpetuate into eternal
damnation. The expectation of the coming of
Christ should cause our hearts to rise in joy
(not fall by the wayside) as we watch and pray.
This is not a message of opinion, but a word
of warning to remain steadfast, unmovable,
always abounding in the work of the Lord. “Ye
did run well; who did hinder you that ye should
not obey the truth” (Galatians 5:7) Excuses
and offences will not get you into heaven, but
enduring hardness as a good soldier of Jesus
It is time for Saints to be strong in the Lord
and in the power of His might, and not wrong
in the flesh and the understanding of your
sight. Make sure your decisions were made by
putting God first and not you first. At the end
it’s all about Jesus and not about you!
So I encourage you to put on the whole armor
of God that ye may be able to stand against the
wiles of the devil and having done all to stand!
Only then, will you escape the judgment of the
“great falling away.”

The Podcast To Look Out For
The ITSC staff managed to land an interview with the host of one the fastest growing Christian podcasts
on the net. Listen in as we ask @Monty_Mont about the behind the scenes of the My-T-Sharp Show.
1. What caused you to start this podcast
After church I would talk to a lot of brothers and there would be a lot of interesting conversations. I
listen to podcasts and I figured that we have just as stimulating conversations as the people I listen to so I
should start recording them. And now we have the show.
2. What was your favorite show that you’ve done so far
That’s hard to say - there are so many shows now. I don’t know if I have a favorite. I’ve enjoyed doing them
all. Sometimes different guests give different reactions. Somebody once told me that the best show that we
did was the first show. I guess we still got work to do - they set the bar high!
3. Is there any particular topic on the back burner that you are still waiting to bring out
We are going to do a show about a lot of the things “conspiratorially” that have happened in the past year.
We’ve touched on a lot of stuff and we are going to get some insight on some new things as well.
4. How do you decide who you will have on the panel
That’s a question I’ve gotten before. It’s not an exact science. I know everybody that I ask to be on. Sometimes
you don’t want four crazy people on. You want maybe one crazy person and add with that an insightful
person or one who is not so joke-driven. Hopefully people ping off of each other. For the most
part it is good. Everybody is always nervous when they come on. I kind of take it for granted because I
have been doing this for so long. Usually what happens 70% of the time is when we finish a show, whoever
was new says that the show ended too soon and that they were just getting warmed up. It’s a hit and
miss, but I try to get personalities that mesh.
5. What should we tell the listener to expect
A lot of people actually want us to do a video of the show. That is a little more difficult. I’ve watched radio
shows on YouTube and the only issue really is that you really need to switch between two cameras (one
for the host shot and the other for the panel). We also have people that liked the ad, so we will have more
of those coming.
6. If you could choose anyone in the world to interview, dead or alive, who would it be and why
There’s a lot of people but I would probably say that one person that I’ve admired because of his drive is
Donald Trump. Not that I’ve agreed with everything that he has done, but he has had so many ups and
downs. I always admire people that seem unflappable. And I would love to interview Bill Clinton. He’s
also had a lot of storms in his life, some self-induced, but he seems to be able to really rise above it. There
are a lot of people but definitely those two.
7. What is your vision for the show five years from today
The show was started because me and the guys and I talk so much, but I also wanted to use it as a conduit
into the gospel music industry, which I am trying to get into more. The show has already opened doors
for that. I’ve made some really good connections and met some really good people. The show is an extra
thing with it but it would be great if we could get a real radio show. Maybe not as crazy as other shows,
but there is always something to talk about.
8. Have there been any unintended consequences that have come from the show
You know, that is why we use different names. We say some stuff that people may not agree with (like in
our upcoming conspiracy show). That is also why I don’t necessarily release the name of my church. If
something is on the website that disagrees with what we say, I won’t delete it. And we have had people to
disagree but that is what happens when you put yourself out there. That is just unavoidable and you’ve got
to take the good with the bad. Overall we have had some very positive feedback.
