"Our Anchor Holds!" Alva Jean Chesser March 27, 2020

(I trust this is encouraging to you today!  This morning my spirit was stirred to write some words of encouragement, and this is the first one)

 This morning at 8:00, in my county of Mecklenburg, North Carolina, we came under a ‘Stay at Home’ directive.  Although I was born in the depression, lived through WWII, 9/11, and so many other things, in all my 85 years, I have not experienced anything like this, and it’s because of the ‘Coronavirus’ out of China!  It’s amazing what has happened in the last 2-3 weeks that has not only shut down our nation to a great degree, but it has basically shut down our whole world!  Makes you wonder what is lurking out there in addition to all the ‘news’, filled with many lies!

 But in this time, if you know Jesus Christ and have a personal relationship with Him, your Anchor holds!! 

 Be encouraged this morning!  Jesus has told us we’re going to the other side, and the streets there are paved with gold!  The 12 foundations of that city are of twelve precious stones!  The gates of the city are made of one pearl!  There is no pain, no crying, and no darkness there!  No need of sun nor moon there because Jesus is the Light that is turned on!  (Revelation 21)

 I was told yesterday of a young man who had a vision 2 nights ago, and he saw a man galloping along on a horse crying out, “Jesus is coming!  Jesus is coming!”  I thought of the famous ride of Paul Revere who rode shout the warning, “The British are coming! The British are coming!” And come, they did!

 Jesus is coming - and He is coming soon! Until then, your Anchor holds!!

by Alva Jean Chesser

In times like these you need a Savior,

In times like these you need an anchor; 

Be very sure, be very sure,

Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

 

This Rock is Jesus, Yes He's the One,

This Rock is Jesus, the only One;

Be very sure, be very sure,

Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

 

In times like these you need the Bible,

In times like these, O be not idle; 

Be very sure, be very sure,

Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

 

This Rock is Jesus, Yes He's the One,

This Rock is Jesus, the only One;

Be very sure, be very sure,

Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

 

In times like these I have a Savior,

In times like these I have an anchor;

I'm very sure, I'm very sure

My anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

 

This Rock is Jesus, Yes He's the One,

This Rock is Jesus, the only One;

Be very sure, be very sure,

Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

Testimony about Faith Of My Father, the book by Dr. Alva Jean Chesser

Larry W. Smith

I had Emma Ross Fisher loan me her book this past Sunday, you wrote, WILLIAM F. MORRIS, FAITH OF MY FATHER.

I have laugh and cried as I read and recalling some of these events your father recorded!
So many I recalled being told by my Grandmother, Mother and Father!

My wife's Grandmother Marie Stoppe Willison, was sister to Aunt Claira Stoppe Koshewitz, and Uncle Henry and Aunt Violet Stoppe, and Aunt Helen!

What a heritage, what A Great Family!

I WILL NEVER FORGET CHRISTMAS OF 68 in Indian ROCKS with ALL THE MORRIS FAMILY! WHAT A TIME WE ALL HAD ALL TOGETHER!

I was reading your book at Lunch Sunday in Ruby Tuesday and was reading about Dot Steve Stevens when I spotted their daughter Rene and her Husband Lennie Swann! I ran over to their table and read them that portion! Of course Rene already had read, but tears flowed down my face as I could picture the scenes!
I told her I would love to hear her Mom and Her Aunt Blanch sing again! Of course, they made the best pies too!

Thank you for writing this important book! I'm glad your father wrote about me! I still recall the night I had to go to the bathroom down in the basement of the Church when Sally turned out the lights of the entire Church! I recall screaming to the top of my lungs because I was so scared in the dark all alone at five years old down in the basement until my father came and got me and led me out! I read this portion to my bride as she just had heard the story told by my father many years ago! we all laughed!

Sis Sally, I can laugh now, but it wasn't funny then to a scared little boy! LOL,

AGAIN THANKS TO GOD FOR YOUR FATHER'S DEDICATION UNTO HIM AND ALL THE FOLKS THAT HE INFLUENCED AS PASTOR OF THE CHURCH OF GOD IN EASTON!"
