9/11 Behaviour comes out of what’s in your Heart

March 21, 2013tools

So far we have discovered that much of who we are and how we react in our life comes out of a part of us that the Bible calls ‘The Heart’.  It is the centre of everything we are but it is hidden and only God can see this ‘unconscious’ part of us.  So how can be open up this deep part of us and really get to the place where we have an understanding of ‘why we do what we do’.

Often people complain that they can’t change their bad habits, or they keep making the same mistakes or they can’t get to sleep at night.  All three of these complaints involve faulty thinking.  It is often said that the ‘battle’ is in the mind.  Consider this basic model:

9/9 Hearing God: We all Begin with the Same Heart Condition

March 15, 2013

In our last posts, we talked about having a heart and that our heart can be in different conditions.  Have you started to look at what might be in your Heart yet?  We will include practical ways that you can start to do this.

Remember we also talked about how your Heart is hidden and yet it is the central location of all the issues of your life.  Hhuuummm so what can this mean?  To understand this, we must look at some of the beginning of all our Heart issues.

A.  We all Begin with a Heart in the same Condition

 Ephesians 4:18 explains this.

“They (meaning us) are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardness of their heart.”

Time Line – from 445 BC to the end of time

March 26, 2013

As we continue out Time Line series, we can now add 445 BC, ‘the Silent Years’ between the Old and New Testaments until the end of time as we know it.  So far, we have given you the Time Line of Adam to Noah.  Then we finished the Time Line of Noah to Abraham.  From there, we went from Abraham to Jesus’ birth

Now we continue from Jesus’ birth and establishing His kingdom to the end of time with the rule of the Antichrist and the end of the ages.  After this, comes 1000 years of peace under Jesus’ rule, the Unbeliever’s Judgements and the ending of all time as humans know it.  Eternity marks a new space in God and Human’s history!

What we have to Learn: April-May Sunday Cuppa Review

March 19, 2013

Hearing your Creator’s Voice

Amazing … here we are almost in June 2011!  I don’t know about you, but time goes so fast.  So much as happened since I first started this blog!  What I thought we’d do today is share some of those hurdles, milestones and triumphs.

Anyone who has ever started … or continued with  … a blog will want to hear some of this.  I’ve changed themes 3 times now, trying to get the above heading into the right format and the right rest of the layout.  Ha!  Easy … well you’ve got to be somewhat familiar with CSS and HTML and … and … and  … but that’s a learning process.

The Half Truths my Heart Still Believes about God

March 17, 2013

The following is list of common half-truths and outright lies our heart may still hang onto about our Creator.

#

My Heart Still Believes this:

Emotions:

   1.    “I am all alone and no one can / will help.”     “I have been overlooked, not needed and no one cares.  There is no one to protect me.  I cannot trust anyone.  No one rescued or saved me.  Maybe God has forsaken me too.”

Abandoned, alone unprotected and devastated, lost, not trusted.

 

   2.    “I am an idiot, stupid because I should have done something to stop it.”  I should have known better, but I kept going back.  It was my fault.  I did not try hard enough to stop them.”    “I caused it by my ….  sex/looks/etc.”

Shame, guilt blame, numb, flawed, broken, useless.

In this post on Hearing God, I am presenting two interesting approaching to our topic.  In searching for more teaching info, I found many YouTube Introductions to the Covenants of Jehovah.  I have included two from the list you might gain more insight about the Covenants.

1.  Benny Hinn explains 7 major Covenants.

2.  David Pawson presents a 15 part teaching on the Covenants.

I have included them both as a way of sharing more insights on why God made covenants with humans and what is our response to His message today. 

Enjoy, Susanne Fengler

 

This is the teaching from:  Benny Hinn – 7 Biblical Covenants in the Bible, Made & Sealed!

The Three Lies that We Believe to be Happy

March 14, 2013

There are three lies our heart believes that challenge hearing
God and our relationships with people:

LIE #1:  I need to change people’s behaviour to be happy.

Silently ask the Lord this question:  “Lord Jesus, do I believe in my heart that I need to change others’ behaviour?”  Answer _______________?

1.  The truth is that I can’t change anyone’s behaviour. They are going to make their own choices, Deuteronomy 30:15-19.

Luke 6:29 – “If someone strikes you on onecheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.”

2.  God does not want me to manipulate people into doing the ‘right’ thing.

3.  Even God can’t change people who don’t want to be changed.

Cuppa’ with Susanne – A Christian Perspective on the Horrors of 9/11

March 13, 2013rss

 

In our last Cuppa time together, we talked about the interesting concept of hearing God to give a ‘Birthday Blessings Celebration’.  It was great to see a few comments on this unique way to celebrate our Creator’s choice to have someone born into this world. 

So grab a cuppa’ and let’s see what our time together brings.

I sat in my car the other day – the other very wet rainy, miserable day – with a flat tire/tyre, waiting for the Service van.   As I looked out my rain splattered, blurry window, there was as magnificent rainbow!  …glorious….and it started me thinking.  Was it a good thing I that happened?  No, I was soaked trying to change the tyre/tire, I missed a very important meeting, my friends were worried ….but whoa! The rainbow ….. Glorious!

YouTube – A Humorous look at Noah and the Ark – Bill Crosby

March 10, 2013

Here is a humours look at what might have transpired between God and Noah, through the words of Bill Crosby.  I am sure Noah was glad that God brought the animals to him … rather than to go and collect them.  Enjoy!

Bill Cosby – Noah called to build the Ark

We have discussed the covenants made between the Creator and Adam, and then with Adam and Eve after their rebellion.  How sad it was to the Creator of life to see the whole known world filled with violence and wickedness, Genesis 6:1-13.  Remember back then, there was mainly one land mass, filled with the generations of Cain, all exceeding each other in their rebellion of the laws of Jehovah.  From the timeline, we see the generations of Seth were also in the land.  Through Enoch, Methuselah and Lemech, the Creator found one man – Noah.

8/4 Heaven will be a Place of Fulfilment in ‘Work’ and Worship

March 28, 2013content

A.  The whole concept of the nature and character of Creator God has been warped by the sin-sick world we live in.

All nations will come and worship the Almighty Creator and Father of us all, Revelations 15:4-21:5.  When Isaiah speaks for the Lord of the new heavens and earth, he prophesies that “all flesh shall come to worship before me“, Isaiah 66:22-23.

We will have a clearer insight into the wisdom and the marvellous purposes of His plan for human life. The apostle Paul says that “though now we see through a glass darkly”, then we shall “see face to face” and “shall know fully, as we are known”, 1 Corinthians 13:12. Heaven will so greatly expand our understanding of His glory and the awesomeness of His creative work.
