A Vital, Sobering Message !!! Brother Fortner,
I praise our LORD, for inspiring you to deliver such a vital message!!! This is a message I do hope is preached at my funeral!!! CHRIST our Redeemer must ALWAYS be lifted up!!And we must ALWAYS be decreased!! To the natural man, who seeks to hear the adulation and the praise of men, this message will be highly offensive, but to those in CHRIST, it is so very sweet!!! It is my hope that our LORD has and will continued to uphold you, and all those who uncompromisingly declare the gospel of GOD'S Dear SON!!!!!

21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
