The Body and Blood of Christ
BIBLE STUDY THURSDAY
May 21, 2015

(The shortened url for this Study is: http://bit.ly/1IROZr6)
We pray for the Hackers that prevent us from using my FB account.
But we move on, because The Word is Christ.
The Word is Life.



Jesus Christ, the Son of God. No one will have Eternal life without accepting Him as Lord.


WELCOME:   So good to have familiar faces returning, and it brings gladness to my soul. How much happier do you think it makes God the Father, and Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit, the Comforter? We could be doing anything else, yet we choose to praise the Lord! And praise the Lord we shall do! For we are not of this world, and our eyes are on the Great Jesus, and our home with Him in heaven!

Please do have one of the following available for Communion during this service, as we do not forsake the gathering of ourselves together, and we do not forsake this ‘Communion’ at Christ’s instruction, to remember Him:
1.    unleavened bread and red wine; or
2.    unleavened bread and grape juice; or
3.    bread and water,

 You will have a chance to accept Christ as your Personal Savior before we take Communion. Being Born Again is more important, so it is okay. We will partake in Communion again on Sunday. Praise to the Lord!

SCRIPTURE: We are on the Book of John, Chapter 3
New American Standard Bible, Ryrie:

“To Nicodemus, 3:1-21

1.             Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews;
2.             This man cam to Him by night, and said to Him,  “Rabbi, we know that you have come from God a a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
3.             Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, Truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
4.             Nicodemus said to Him, “How dan a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?”
5.             Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6.             That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is both of the Spirit is spirit.
7.             “Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’
8.             The wind blows where it wishes and ou hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and whee it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
9.             Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”
10.         Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not understand these things?”
11.         Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak that which we know, and bear witness of that which we have seen; and you do not receive our witness.
12.         “If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how shall you believe if I tell you heavenly things?
13.         “And no one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven, even the Son of Man.
14.         “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;
15.         that whoever belives may in Him have eternal life.
16.         For God so loved the world that He gave His only bgotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
17.         “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him.
18.         “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe in Him is judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19.         And this is the judgement, the at  the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their deeds were evil.
20.         For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
21.         But he who practices the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.””

SERMON SUMMARY: Nicodemus was THE ruler of the Jews, on the panel of the Sanhedrin.

In verse 3, “born again” literally means “born from above. (See 3:31, 10:11 and Gal 4:9 where it is used as “again.” John’s gospel intermixes the translations to a “being born anew” or a “regeneration”(Titus 3:5) occurs when God turns the believer’s acceptance into Eternal Life, becoming a new member of God’s family (1 Peter, 1:23). With it comes a new desire and way to please and love God (2 Corin 5:17).


INVITATION TO ACCEPT CHRIST: I ask you all to pray and intercede for those who are so close to accepting Christ. If you have not yet Accepted Christ, and would like to Accept Christ as your Personal Savior, please repeat out loud after me:

God, we are all sinners, and I have sinned. I know Christ came to Earth and was crucified, died, and was resurrected for my sins. I know that He waits in Heaven for The Second Coming, and those who believe in Him will be “taken up” to Heaven as the Evil One, the Anti-Christ, tries to rule the Earth and kill all Christians. I invite Christ into my life, heart, and soul right now, asking for forgiveness of all sins. Thank you for your simple and generous Grace; there is nothing more that I need to do, since Christ paid the price for my sins on the Cross. Thank you Lord, that I am now a Born Again Christian!

Just stay later or private message me (for females) or Noah Moretears (for males) to be mentored into this beautiful transition. You need to declare with your mouth, that you have accepted Christ as your Saviour. Tell someone now! Tell us here! Tell a friend! It is your testimony!

PRAYER AND DONATIONS:  We continue to pray for the homeless, the hungry, the helpless, the orphans, and all of their needs including school supplies and food. Have us help the widows, dear Lord, and all those in need during their time when they are reaching out to us. Let us have a soft heart, forever and ever. Put money in a jar or a shoebox. Amen.

DISMISSAL: Go now, telling other’s of God’s everlasting love for you. This is The Great Commission that Christ gave us, to tell the world, so that all of man and woman can be saved. We go to a place of great joy when we die; so listen carefully: we don’t die. We live on, and we will see others that have gone before us. We will smell their scent. We will reminisce but we will be too busy with Christ and joy. 



May the peace that passes all understanding be with you now and always. 
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
