8/11 What can we learn from Hearing God and His Covenants?

December 18, 2012

 A.  In studying the Old and New Testament Covenants God has given to individual people, we can learn many important truths about the invisible God we worship:

1.  The covenants give us a progressive, intimate revelation of God’s nature and character through His dealings with mankind. We can see how this revelation is important for us today to know His nature and character.

2.  We can gain an overview of the history of Israel, their failures and successes.

3.  We can see the results when Israel broke the covenant relationships….and how that applies when we break with our Covenant with the Lord Jesus.  There were and still are consequences to turning our back on His conviction power.

Hearing God and a Story about Susanne

December 14, 2012

author of this blog - SusanneIn the year 1943, Susan, daughter of Fay and Granddaughter of Frances, was born.  Her early life was marked by moves and several major changes in family life.  She knew no stable, permanent relationship with a father, other than that of Father God.

In the year 1959, Susan accepted her calling as King and High Priest of the Lord.  To begin with, her service to the Lord of Lords, King Jesus, was marked more by worldly peer group activities than love for His service.  Her awareness of the Most High God’s love grew, but she was not dealing with her heart’s inner and secret life.  She was not taught to:

“ …. tear down the high places…”.

8/9 The Consequences that go with the Eight Covenant

December 9, 2012store

  Because of Adam and Eve’s rebellion to the Creator’s plans, they brought disastrous consequences on the whole human race.  Death entered along with continued rebellion, sin and self-centred actions. 

  God’s ‘image bearers’ were now scared and not capable of earning their way to His peace.  Those who would not accept His way into life would face eternal conscious separation from Him, Matthew 25:41.  The fallen creation was also hostile to their domination. 

A.  The curses of all the past covenants find their completion in this covenant as well. 

This greatest of all curses is known as ‘the second death’ for those who have turned their backs on God, Revelations 2:11, 20:13-15, 21:8.  As a result of turning their back to the sacrifice of Jesus and the conviction of the Holy Spirit, these people will find:

The Nature of God

December 6, 2012

One of the greatest challenges to our faith is “Why do things happen in my life which don’t seem fair?”  When we understand who God is, we will begin to understand why He does what He does.  Our ignorance of His nature is at the heart of many of our grumbles about life.  Our faith must rest on the nature, character and attributes of God.  Since God cannot change His nature, we can build true faith into our lives by knowing His nature.  The following are the nature, character and the attributes of God:

1.  God is one, in Unity with Himself, His purposes and His plans for us and for mankind are not divided, compromised or incomplete, Deuteronomy 6:4, 1 Corinthians 8:6.

8/8 Heaven will be Beyond this present Physical Space, Time and Place

December 1, 2012terms

Asking where heaven exists is a little like asking where the center of the universe is. In fact, the universe doesn’t have a center, since everything is moving away from every other thing. The Bible indicates that heaven does not exist in this universe, but is God’s abode.

Here are some very interesting points about Heaven, adapted from the website: ‘Evidence for God’   http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/xdimgod.html

In fact, the Bible indicates that even the highest heavens (of this universe) cannot contain God.21 Since we human beings are restricted to the space time dimensions of this universe, we can never go in a spaceship and find heaven, since it is not any place to which we can travel.

A.  We will live in a Physical and Spiritual Perfect Place

8/6 YouTube Video Resources – A Place Called Heaven

November 21, 2012

YouTube video Resources:

I am sure you have read or heard about many who have died and seen heaven for themselves. They describe such a realm that is beyond description. Some who died and came back to life revealed seeing their lost loved ones in heaven, their family, friends and some even their pets.

This is difficult to prove, yet the sheer number of these who have seen heaven and came back from death is hard to refute. Only they themselves know this for certain. But the Bible does describe some of what heaven is like in the scriptures. It is, from the human standpoint, indescribable, I Corinthians 2:9.

8/3 So what will Heaven and Hearing God be Like?

October 30, 2012

As we continue with this eight and last Covenant, it helps if we have some idea of what Heaven will be like.  Will it be like the advertisements or angels floating on clouds, watching what’s going on elsewhere?  Will it be a ‘state’ of floating ‘nothing-ness’?  Will we just be sitting around singing with the angels throughout all eternity?  One thing we know for sure is that this place, this existence will be far, far beyond what we can imagine with our natural mind. 

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him”, 1 Corinthians 2:9. Our minds simply cannot comprehend the glory that awaits us.   Our language doesn’t even have the proper words to describe how things will be in heaven.

Guest Post – Mary Did you Know?

November 17, 2012
blog

At the time of writing this Guest post, we had just celebrated Resurrection Sunday, 2012.  Just as many churches around the world remembered the event when Jesus Christ was crucified and arose from the dead, our celebration centred on the wonder of our Creator’s love for us.  Remember ‘……The Word became flesh and He lived among us……”

This Sunday service was especially meaningful for us as the following reading was presented by a special woman in our congregation, Jinny.  So here is the Poem she wrote and presented to mark our celebration.

*******

‘Mary did you know?

Crying you waited,

Silent, weeping outside the tomb;

The others were bewildered, back to their homes ..

But you waited on.

Where was your Lord?

YouTube – Israel In Ancient Egypt – Archaeological Proof

November 11, 2012privacy

Using the latest archaeological evidence from the stables of Rameses ll to little-known ancient Egyptian texts, Egyptologist and Bible Archaeologist show that Israel did in fact exist and had a presence in ancient Egypt. This is the 2003 documentary “Who Was Moses?”

 

The proof of the Bible record is clearly there.  Often it takes men of science to bring the information to the light of ‘modern day’ science.  Our thanks to  for this YouTube posted on October 24, 2011.  Catch you on our next post,

Our Second Sunday Cuppa’ with Susanne

October 20, 2012

Recently we were honoured to be invited to a “Birthday Blessing Celebration“.  This was a family we have been involved with for many rewarding years of friendship.  So we joined the group for a radant 16 year old’s celebration.  She (we’ll call her Jackie from now on)  had been through an amazing turn-around in her own short life time.  She had ‘stumbled’ through 3 years from depressed, suicidal, rebellious, defiant teen to this person who sat before us now.

He Makes Everything New!

October 7, 2012
guidelines

Hi Everyone!   Just a quick story I wanted to share from my Mentor’s Notebook!

Patricia struggled many years from the physical and sexual abuse she experienced as a child.  She had avoided male contact and always felt shame and not being good enough for anyone to love.  Then she sat with the Lord one day and all that changed.

Patricia first saw pieces of unfinished, raw wood lying on the floor.   Some of was cut and other bits were broken and burnt.  At first, she thought she was being discarded until she saw the second picture.

She saw many pieces of crack, broken glass, all different colours and shapes.  Now, as the tears started, she was certain these 2 pictures represented her life.  What was the Lord saying?
