THE FIRST ONLINE BIBLE STUDY FOR THE
Thursday, June 21, 2015
WELCOME! This is the Day that the Lord has made! Let us be glad and rejoice in it!We
have special prayers for the sick, the lost, and the depressed. We have God’s
Word, which is a light unto their paths.
25 Truly, truly, I say to
you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice
of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.
For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son
also to have life in Himself;
and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He
is the Son of Man.
not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in
the tombs will hear His voice,
and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a
resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a
resurrection of judgment.
“I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My
judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him
who sent Me.
I alone testify about Myself, My testimony is not true.
There is another who testifies of Me, and I know that the testimony which
He gives about Me is true.
You have sent to John, and he has testified to the truth.
But the testimony which I receive is not from man, but I say these things
so that you may be saved.
He was the lamp that was burning and was shining and you were willing
to rejoice for a while in his light.
But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John;
for the works which the Father has given Me to accomplish—the very
works that I do—testify about Me, that the Father has sent Me.
And the Father who sent Me, He has testified of Me. You have neither heard
His voice at any time nor seen His form.
You do not have His word abiding in you, for you do not believe Him whom
You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life;
it is these that testify about Me;
and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life.
do not receive glory from men;
but I know you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves.
I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another
comes in his own name, you will receive him.
How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you
do not seek the glory that is from the one and only
Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you
is Moses, in whom you have set your hope. ”
For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about
you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?
SERMON AND SONGS:
Let us rejoice in this day
that God has made, for we never know what miracles or blessings we can give or
receive! We shall sing songs and speak prayers of faith, belief, healing,
health, delight, and salvation to our starving spirits.
Did they take Jesus
seriously? No. Did they have faith or belief?
Do you take the Bible
When was the last time you
talked to non-believers about the Bible? In front of tens of thousands of
people, here is what one person said:
We are constantly barraged
with the sins of the flesh, the volatility of the eyes and what they see, the madness
and the irrational, wanton value that we put on material things, and the
arguments of yesterday that we cannot even remember today!
Let us ask Our God to change
our hearts, so that we can be like Him.
Let us be true Believers of

rejuvenated Spirit and a rededication of our souls to live up to the judgement
of Our Lord Jesus!
