CHRISTIAN HORSEMAN'S ASSOCIATION
The Christian Horsemans Association is being formed in 1998 as a "Fellowship for those who know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior,a Ministry for those who do not."
The bible is comprised of 66 books, written by over 40 different authors, all with different backgrounds (ie. kings, fishermen,doctors etc,) on hundreds of topics, in three different languages, on three different continents over a period of 1500+ years.
And, there is complete harmony in the writings!
The God of Abraham and Isaac is the God who inspired the scriptures.
The same God created the heavens and the earth.
The very same God hung on a cross to take the place of people like you and me because our hearts are so wicked even we cannot know it. Without that act of unconditional love and acceptance on the cross your eternal destiny is seperation from God,..living in eternal hell.
There are over 300 ramifications to the prophecies of Christ in the bible, and the majority of them have already come true. His birth (where it would be and how), His death (how it would be), and His resurrection ( a documented fact).
While upon the earth Christ asked us to "follow him," and that request is as valid today as it was when he spoke those words 2,000 years ago. If you love Jesus you will obey His commands and follow Him. "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms" (1 Pet.4:10).
Today in a world of uncertainty the only certainty we have is that Jesus Christ died on that cross at Calvary to save you and I and He will return.
You do not believe that He will return ? Brother, Sister, your doubts or disbelief will not stop His return! It will only stop His plan for YOUR salvation.
This is the promise of the Living God.
COME FOLLOW ME
The horse industry is comprised of individuals from all walks of life. Horse people are a special brand of people all unto themselves.
The majority would go hungry,. but their horse will eat.
The average horse person remains "horse poor." They will ride in a $3,000 saddle and drive a $300 truck if they have to.
It makes no difference if they paid $100 or $25,000 for their favorite horse.... in their eyes that animal is priceless.
They overlook the conformation flaws, they ignore the personality quirks...as bad as they may be....they just love this animal despite the qualities, or lack of, that may make this animal unloveable.
In fact, we see our favorite horse somewhat like Jesus see's us. Looking through a heart with unconditional love, sacrificial love.
Have you ever said that your horse is acting "as stubborn as an old mule!" Jesus simply said, " Follow me!" Put aside your willfullness, stubborness and pride,.."Follow Him!"
It is time for all christians within the horse industry to unite and enjoy fellowship, to put our faith into good works, to be a beacon for the unsaved,. to "Follow Him."
Jesus rode on the back of a donkey,. but he will return on a magnificent White Horse. It will be the champion of champions. A magnificent creature to behold. Today horses bring us worldy joy. Tomorrow a White Horse will bring us our Lord and Savior.
Are you ready?
There are many sincere christians within the horse industry. It would be difficult not to recognize the majesty of God while watching a beautiful horse float across a pasture with elegance and cadence, Or while sitting on horseback watching the sun set between mountain peaks, Or seeing the excitement shimmer in a childs eye as they reach out to touch a new born foal. Come fellowship with other believers. Come strengthen your faith, and become involved in activity that will bring joy to your heart and glory to God.
If you have never accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior we invite you to do so right now by following Gods' simple plan of salvation. For if you know in your heart and speak with your mouth eternal life in Heaven is yours.
"Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be."
And all believers shall say, "Amen."
Jesus will always be your friend when all others fail you. You may not understand His ways at first. But as your faith increases you soon realize that Jesus stands by you when others do not. He accepts you,. when others turn their backs. He carries you when you are too tired to make one more step. And when you trip and fall He picks you up, dusts you off, and guides you back onto the right path. It takes little time to go from doubt and disbelief, to faith and trust,... to kneeling down and giving all of the Glory to your Lord and Savior. All you have to do is open your heart, ask Jesus to forgive you and come into your life, and "follow Him." Then the bible will stop looking like a collection of fairy stories,. and it will become your directions for life. He who saved you, will change you. May God bless you and protect you during this journey.
During the autumn/winter of 1998 the C.H.A would like interested parties to establish regional chapters of the C.H.A (a none denomination christian association) to promote christian fellowship activities for horsemen, women and their families. Pastors, deacons and church leaders are especially sought. And we ask you to prayerfully consider any leadership position in the C.H.A. and ask Jesus where He can work through you to bring joy to others. If you would like to promote or participate in b-b-q's, trail rides, gymkhana's/playdays, prayer chains, or any other activities please
contact your friends in Christ: The Christian Horsemans Association.
Two are better than one.....If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!-Ecclesiates 4:9-10 NIV
