2017 was the year that God had Jacob’s Well Fellowship focus on the word "GROW". Through the Book of Ezekiel we were stretched and strengthened to a heightened sense of spiritually maturity in our walk of Grace, Repentance, Other-Centeredness, and Worship. 

2018 was the year that God was calling JWF to focus on the word "HOLY". He was calling us to be His set apart remnant in these last days; living out a walk of Humble, Obedience, Listening, to Yahweh! I believe that it is by no coincidence that the Book of Ezekiel ends with the words "The Lord is there" and the Book of Leviticus opens with the words, "Then the Lord called". God in His Holiness is calling JWF to have sweet fellowship with Him in a time when few are humble, few are obedient, and no one wants to listening . . .

Isaiah 55:3 Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen, that you may live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, According to the faithful mercies shown to David.

John 10:27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;

Rev 3:19-21 Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

I Pt 1:14-17 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth;

Amos 8:11-12 Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord God, “When I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, But rather for hearing the words of the Lord. “People will stagger from sea to sea And from the north even to the east; They will go to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, But they will not find it.

When you review the History of JWF and Hill Top Equestrian Center, you might say our legacy began in Lewisburg with prayer and a school building. You may know enough about me as your pastor to say it began with a grandmother who prayed for her favorite grandson to come to know Jesus. You may even know enough about the land upon which our ministry sets to say it began with a German immigrant family by the name of Ware who decided to settle a homestead near water and in a field of stone; a half mile long monument stands to declare their perseverance and tenacity as they cleared the fields of large granite stones that time had left behind so that they might be able to plant and harvest the fruits of their labor. All of these statements are mere reminders, the pavers that were placed on top of the true beginning and foundation of JWF & HTEC's legacy. Before the foundations were laid, the Apostle John calls us all to remember, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men."

It was God's word by which all things were created, the word that is a continual lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path that gave birth to our Legacy. This legacy shall have enduring, eternal, everlasting consequences if we remain careful to guard it as a treasure, retain it as a standard, protect it as the only words of life by heeding the warning of Proverbs 23:10 Do not move the ancient boundary Or go into the fields of the fatherless." The Word of God and the souls it redeems unto life, these are our true legacies. We will continue to preach His infallible Word in season and out of season. We will reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction, enduring hardship, fulfilling our ministry, His Legacy!

In Christ,

Pastor Jim
