I am truly grateful for the opportunity to turn sixy years of age today. It would not have occurred without the heroic efforts of my fishing partner, as well Brian Dittmare, Steve Prior, Wendel Clarke, Lisa Addison, Cathy Haskett and Crystal Lane, and the fire and ambulance crews and dedicated medical staff who defrosted us. Please accept my heart-felt thanks.

Sincerely Kirk Longmuir

Thank you for my family, friends and neighbours for their support and prayers over the past few years throughout my health issues, and in the past month since my surgery. It is great to be home! Special thank you to the Gore Bay Medical Clinic, London University Hospita Transplant Team and Manitoulin Transport for all the special care that was extended to me.

The Clark family would like to extend our sincere thanks to all family and friends for the many cards, messages, meals and visits which we received following the loss of our dear wife, mom and gramma. We truly appreciate all of your loving support during this very difficult time. We are grateful to everyone who attended the funeral service and who kindly sent flowers and donations to a variety of charities in Dianne’s memory. Thanks as well to Reverend Laurie Howard, Katherine Thompson and the Simpsons for honouring Dianne with the lovely service, and to the UCW for providing the lunch. We would also like to thank Dr. Bedard, the Assiginack Health Care Team, the paramedics and the staff at Sudbury Health Sciences North for their quick response and care. With sincere thanks for all of the generosity, kindness, love and support,

The family of Dianne Clark


CASE–In loving memory of Wife, Mother and Grandmother, Margaret Case.

He Only Takes The Best

God saw she was her happiest,

And someone would not let that be.

So he put his arms around her

And whispered, “Come with me.”

With tear-filled eyes we watched her,

Suffer and fade away.

Although we loved her deeply

We could not make her stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

Hard working hands put to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us,

He only takes the best.

Lovingly remembered by husband Bill Case and family

COY–In loving memory of our Brother “Coy,” John Clarence Fogal, June 21, 2016.

In Memory of a Special Brother

Today is full of memories

Of a brother laid to rest,

And every single one of them

Is filled with happiness.

For you were someone special,

Always such a joy to know,

And there was so much pain

When it was time to let you go.

That’s why this special message

Is sent to heaven above

For the angels to take care of you

And give you all our love.

Remembering you with love,

Bev, Bill, Doug, Edna, Carrie

The same soil where good fruits and vegetables grow will grow weeds, thorns and thistles. If the weeds, thorns and thistles are not removed they will hamper the producing of the desired fruits and vegetables. This is true of the garden of a mind too; the same mind that can expound on important biblical truth can expound heresy. A person can believe sound doctrine and also false doctrine at the same time. There is not one subject the NT spends more space on than on warning against believing false doctrines. Believing false doctrine is a sin that will keep the person believing them out of the Kingdom of God, GAL. 5:19 21. Like all other sins this sin puts a person into bondage of Satan, see JOHN 8:31-44, PROV. 5:22. All sin is also an act of unbelief and this blinds the mind, 2 COR. 4:4 and it confuses the mind, DEUT 28: 28. A person may be sincere, intelligent, well educated and know the Bible (like the Pope and Billy Graham and many other Christian theologians). But when he rejects a biblical teaching he accepts a false doctrine and he will be spiritually blind and mentally confused, especially on the doctrine he rejects, and is partly in bondage to Satan (evil spirits). PS. 111:10 says “A good understanding have all those who obey God’s commandments.” DEUT 4:6 says, “Obey these (10) commandments for that will be your understanding.” When only one of God’s commandments is disobeyed, understanding goes out the door and confusion takes its place. The word Babylon means confusion. Everyone who sins or believes a false doctrine accepts a lie of Satan and is automatically taken captive by Satan into mystery Babylon. All people who believe a false doctrine, a lie of Satan (reject biblical truth), are taken captive by Satan to do Satan’s will, 2 TIM 2:26. (Doing Satan’s will includes teaching this same false doctrine to others.) The only way to get out of this trap of Satan is by listening to the instruction of opponents, 2 TIM 2:25. In other words, “Conflict on doctrine is God’s way to guide you into truth and so deliver you from the bondage that is created by believing Satan’s lies,” JOHN 8:31-44. The basic problem is that most people consider all conflict wrong and the moment a person tells them that one of their beliefs is wrong Satan closes their ears, and they don’t hear the truth and they stay in bondage. JER 50:33 says: “All who took them captive (that is Satan who is the King of Babylon IS. 14) held them fast, they refused to let them go.” But the next verse says, “Their Redeemer is strong Yahweh Sabaoth (who marks his people with the Sabbath) is his name. In most translations “Yahweh Saba-oth” In JER 40:33 is translated as “the lord of host.” I believe Sabaoth is a contraction of two Hebrew words strong 6635 Tsaba and strong 226 that means a sign or a mark. In EX. 31-13+17 and EZ. 20:12+20 it is explained that the sanctifying of the Sabbath is a sign (mark) that a person truly belongs to God. In other words the sanctifying of the Sabbath is the main mark or sign that identifies a person as a true Christian. The basic sin why Israel went into Babylon captivity is that they polluted (did not sanctify) God’s Sabbath (Friday sunset till Saturday sunset) see LEV. 26:34+35, 2 CHRON 36:20+21, EZ.20, NEH. 13:15-20. And the basic sin why most Christians are held captive in mystery Babylon (are confused) is the same they do not sanctify God’s Sabbaths. Let no one deceive you, Sunday is not God’s Sabbath. God’s Sabbath is the 7th day of the week, Sunday or the day of resurrection is the day after the Sabbath, LUKE 23:56, 24:1, MARK 16:1+2, MAT. 8:1. The day of resurrection is the day of first fruits, 1 COR. 15:20 and the day of first fruits is instituted as an annual event together with the Sabbath, LEV. 23:3+11 the resurrection of Jesus on the morning after the Sabbath does not change anything about God’s commandment to sanctify the seventh day as the Sabbath. It is Satan who is behind this lie, this suggestion that Sunday is now God’s Sabbath and the Saints who believe that Sunday is God’s Sabbath are in bondage, DAN 7:25. And the only way for Sunday “Christians” to come out of mystery Babylon is by a) confessing that they are sinning by not sanctifying God’s Sabbath and by b) repenting. That means they dedicate themselves to sanctify God’s Sabbath from Friday sunset till Saturday sunset. And as long as a person has not taken these two steps he will stay spiritually blind and confused and under Satan’s control and that is thus says the Lord.
