“Brother Billy”In all our hearts
We all can say that Brother Billy has carved his name into our hearts by making the sacrifices that he did, by the stories he told and the way he told the story by the songs he sang and by the way he would sing the songs and all would know what he would do but anticipate that he would give us his all, and nobody was disappointed until it was time to go, this time is the hardest but though it is hard to let him go, everything he did, every story he told, every song he sang was to go where he went.
Though it is departure time from us for a short while, it is arrival time for Brother Billy.
2Timothy 4:6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
2Cor.5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
Php 1:23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:
2:17 Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.
Every sacrifice Brother Billy made was a Revelation of the love of Christ. His work was that Christ’s name would be written first and last in your heart.
A True Man of God
Next Time No Visitors
We have all been taught that All Men of God must be treated with the upmost respect, always begin and end every conversation by listening to them and by addressing them by their last name but in listening to him Brother Harris became “Brother Billy” To all.
1Kings 17:24 And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth.
By continual listening to Brother Billy we would always see what he was saying.
Brother Billy has touched the life of every person that would really hear him.
In listening close; among his deepest words to always glorify God with every testimony would be this thought
to preach to the hurt not just point at the problem.
He always wanted to get rid of the problem, not just the hurt and keep the person.
“Brother Billy would say every time we came; ALL ARE WELCOME AT MY CHURCH” the first time was a visit and everyone was recognized so that the next time you came, you was one of them.
The very next time we all meet there will be no visitors.
Brother Billy will always be recognized and remembered as a Man of God that will never be forgotten but will be awfully missed,
As a true man of God in heaven He’s not just seeing (awesome- some awe) but awful – full of awe.
Who could take his PLACE?
Who could fill his shoes?
Who could tell his stories?
Who could duplicate his laugh?
Who could take the time he did for people?
Who could hold under the pressure?
Who could carry the burden?
Who could go; not for him but after him?
Sometimes the question is asked, if given the time could you try?
Try is not what Brother Billy Did
Everyone from the Deliverance Center says Thank you Lord for Brother Billy and his lifelong example to the gospel as servant to us but a Real Man of God.
Brother Billy is in the class of best friends to many, some try to get there Brother Billy did.
Everything he did he wanted it to be right.
He would say “I want it right”
Right now!!! Brother Billy is Right in Heaven and we all
Know that is right.
Brother Billy never had an end to his stories
