Psalm 127:1

By Vernon Newbill

The Word of the Lord came to me in late November of 2014.

He simply said, “The Word of the Lord for 2015 is Psalm 127:1”.

Psalm 127:1 “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain.”

He then paused for a moment and said, “Tell her, (The Church), She had better get used to it, this is the way it is going to be”.

Lastly, He brought me before the image of the cross standing in the midst of the devastation of the World Trade Center after the events of 9/11/2001.

My sense is, this word is given to help us understand and interpret the events that will be unfolding this coming year, both in the church and the world.

For many of us, It will come as a painful shock to discover the Lord has not been the author of our labors…

We will find ourselves in great need of humility in those days and hours, to perceive the Lord’s judgments as a last grace and mercy to us, when we would not hear Him any other way.

I pray that in the jarring crisis of devastation, our eyes may finally be opened to find the cross, not in mere creedal acknowledgment, but in its full-orbed apostolic realities.

The cross is in God, the central core of His Being and the very essence of His Nature.

We need to meditate deeply in that reality…

And God crucified, not only externally in the place called Golgotha, but internally, in and through our lives, is the only foundation He builds on.

Lord help us.

Yyour brother in Him,
Vernon Newbill

  1. Dear Brother Vernon Newbill,

    Greetings from India . We are praying for you all in our prayers.

    I wanted to inform you regarding the background of me, my family and the work that God has put on my father Rev. Paul Murty who has been brought up in a very radical Hindu family. He worshipped many Hindu Goddess. In 1970s, my father was sick and he wanted to become a healing man. He looked up to many Gods (over thousands of Gods and Goddess in India ) but no God healed my father except our Heavenly Living Father. Hallelujah. So he accepted Lord Jesus Christ as his personal savior and King. He has been trained as a minister of God from United Evangelical church of India , Andhra Pradesh , India under Rev. Timothy who was expired many years ago. My father is now leading a 74 years of age and unable to walk and speak due to ill health. He started many churches throughout Andhra Pradesh state and Orissa and other areas of Southern India . Due to his ill health, I have been ministering in the churches and I am also starting new churches in India .

    I have immense pleasure to introduce myself that I am a bond servant of God, carrying on His service since last 18 years. I have established Several Church congregations in many different places in Andhra Pradesh State in India .

Our people are mostly Hindus and Muslims who are accustomed to worship ideals, cows, snakes and trees etc.

As a faithful bond servant of our Kind Lord Jesus Christ, my heart is replenished with the spiritual Power of His luminous light of salvation. I determined to declare the manifold Wisdom of God’s Word in each and every remote and rustic rural and tribal areas and Hindu, Muslim and Heathen and superstitious men and women to Christianity and to direct them that were converted in the way of redemption. I had won so many souls to His glory. I myself and along with my co-workers Prayerfully visiting Door to door, Village to village, Schools and colleges, Hospitals, Prisons, Railway Stations and Bus Complexes and hotels and presenting the great love of our Mighty Lord Jesus Christ.

  2. Yes, The Lord has said I will return to My place. When they acknowledge their guilt they will seek Me in their affliction they will earnestly seek Me. Come let us return to the Lord for He has torn us but He will heal us and cause us to stand before Him on the third day. It is the early morning of the third day and we are not healed. The world has experienced the favorable year of the Lord because of us. That will come to and end and the only place grace will be found is in the kingdom, out side the church, outside the camp.
