7/6 Our Authority is confirmed when we are ‘Born Again’

August 27, 2012feed

So far in this series on the Covenants Jehovah has made with humans, we have traced 7 major ‘contracts’.  We then began on the Covenant we are involved with as Jesus Followers – the Covenant between Father God and the true Lord Jesus Christ.  Where does this leave us and our authority when we do become born again?


1. Let’s explain it like this:

a.  Before we are Born Again:

Because we have inherited the same human nature as Adam and Eve in their rebellion and disobedience, we are under the rule and authority of the ‘god of this world’, Satan.  He has a very long list against us and uses any legal right to touch our world.  The Holy Spirit has access to us when we listen and heed His conviction.

7/1 The New Covenant with Jehovah and the Lord Jesus Christ

August 25, 2012

The New Covenant made between Jehovah, Father God and the Lord Jesus Christ


 We continue this series on the Great Covenants Jehovah Elohim made with certain men throughout history.  So far we have seen the beginnings of all Covenants, made before Adam and Eve rebelled and brought misery on the whole human race.

However, God’ great rescue plan was not finished with the human race.  Next, we discussed the plan to bring mankind back under His protection from the enemy that entered the Garden of Eden – the Covenant with Adam.

However, even this covenant was not complete.  Jehovah took certain parts of the previous two covenants and built a third covenant with Noah.  Mankind had so deprived and degenerate that our Creator had been sorry He had created the human race.  Idolatry was everywhere, including sacrifices of children and demonic interbreeding.

Sunday Cuppa with Susanne – God’s Purpose for Eternity?

August 7, 2012rss

………I just stood there, amazed at the words I thought I had heard from the speaker’s comments! 

“Yes, anything not done for the church or having to do with evangelism will be swept away with the wood, hey and stubble,” he had replied. 

He then went on to quote:  “If any one builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood hay, or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will test the quality of each one’s work.  If what they have built survives, they will receive their reward.”    1 Corinthians 3:12-13

So, he continued, “Only what is done for the church will be rewarded as all else will be lost.”

The Story of Cain and Abel

August 28, 2012

After the traumatic time in the Garden of Edan, Adam and Eve continue to live from day to day.  They found shelter, food and clothing to keep them warm.  As the years passed by, they did notice the changes in the soil, the animals and the plants around them.

They explored the part of the Earth they inhabited, settled and move again.  Imagine the amazement when they first discovered that Eve was to bare a child!  They named their first born ‘Cain’.  His name meant “I have created… With God’s help I have created a man…”  Genesis 4:1  We can only guess at the meaning behind these words spoken by Eve: ‘she created….?  She had another man….?  We’ll have to wait for the end of time to know the real story behind her words.

5/3 Hearing God and the Rebellion of Adam and Eve

August 18, 2012

Welcome back to our Second covenant Jehovah-Elohim made with His creation: The Covenant with Adam and Eve after they had taken the temptation in the Garden of Eden. 

So far we have laid out the concepts of ‘Covenants’ by a Creator seeking relationship with His creation.  We saw the purposes, the terms and the three parts to all covenants. 

We then started the very first Covenant given by Jehovah-Elohim in the Garden of Eden, before sin entered creation.  We now continue with the Great Rescue plan the fall of the Human Race.


A.  We return to our STORY: 

“It has all seemed so innocent to begin with.  The tempting voice…. the glittering snake….  The woman wasn’t sure which was ….what …..AGAIN.  She just stood there and stared at the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil ….and listened to the voice of a snake!

Series #2 Personal Spiritual Warfare and Hearing from God

August 27, 2012

So far in our time together, we have covered the big topic: “Why Can’t I hear from the Lord”.  We look at 7 major reasons why some people find it hard to Hear from God.   Remember what they were?

     Wrong teaching and lack of expecting God to talk today was first.  Second, faulty views about the nature of God; who want to hear from a grumpy old Man?  Third, our life is so full of other things we don’t take the time to listen for His still, small voice.

#6 …but it just takes too much effort to change

August 24, 2012

In this series, we have been looking at the reasons why some people aren’t able to hear from their Creator. The first reason, igonrance or wrong theology, can be overcome just be knowing that He does talk to you!   It is possible!

Next we discussed how a wrong view of God can hinder any desire to talk with Him.  A third and all too common reason is that life is too full of distractions and sometimes idolatry take the place of God in our lives.

Then for others, their interest are in other things such as the Occult and things of the hidden kingdom in opposition to God’s kingdom.  The next reason was sadder still as the mistaken view that God is like their earthy dad stops some people finding God.  If their dad was distant, harsh or judgemental, they often believe that is what Creator God must be like.
