PRAYER REQUESTS: TYPE YOURS IN ANY TIME, PLEASE

PRAYER REQUEST: We pray for Jahanzaiblove Jahanzaib in Thailand, dear God, that you lead him to a woman who is breastfeeding her own baby. This way, he can find a nursemaid for his two baby girls, as they have no mother. In Jesus’ name, we pray for him and for these hungry babies, that you lead and guide Him to the right sources he needs for food, shelter, and all his needs to be met.

I am asking everyone to FRIEND him, then leave him a note of Prayerful Encouragement, so that he will have a gift from God when he returns to his page! Just let him know we are here for him. AMEN! This is the time to show that we are Christians by our LOVE!

PRAYER REQUEST: For our sister church in Kampala, African. For our orphans, contact Steven Mwesigwa. Let us believe you God, for $5,000 so they can purchase their own land and become self-sustaining. And one person can “adopt” an orphan for $50 per month! THEY NEED FOOD!

PRAYER REQUEST: For Helen Waltz Whitman, Bob Long-Coleman, Tracy Norton, Bob Coleman-Long, Amy Cole, Tracy Norton, MaryAnn Gray, Jenn Waters, and all others you know who suffer chronic pain or illness in their earthly bodies. Help us to know that our sufferings can be used to solidify and firmly stand our place in FAITH with you, Our Lord.

PRAYER REQUEST:  We ask for special blessings for those who are searching for a job, a raise, or a better financial position.

PRAYER REQUEST: That we continue to grow, multiply, love, spread the Word, clothe the poor, feed our orphans and widows, and serve you, Lord. We praise YOU, Amen!

PRAYER REQUEST:  Please enter here if you have any other prayer requests:

PRAISE REPORTS:  That we have over 300 new members this week! Lord, bring us all those who need healing, OR who can pray for healing!!! We are ready to perform and witness miracles! Amen!

PRAISE REPORT: (no one answers, and one day we shall have many PRAISE REPORTS).

BIBLE STUDY SCRIPTURE:............John 7:25-36.........

25 So some of the people of Jerusalem were saying, “Is this not the man whom they are seeking to kill?

26 Look, He is speaking publicly, and they are saying nothing to Him. The rulers do not really know that this is the Christ, do they?

27 However, we know where this man is from; but whenever the Christ may come, no one knows where He is from.”

28 Then Jesus cried out in the temple, teaching and saying, “You both know Me and know where I am from; and I have not come of Myself, but He who sent Me is true, whom you do not know.

29 I know Him, because I am from Him, and He sent Me.”

30 So they were seeking to seize Him; and no man laid his hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come.

31 But many of the crowd believed in Him; and they were saying, “When the Christ comes, He will not perform more signs than those which this man has, will He?”

32 The Pharisees heard the crowd muttering these things about Him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to seize Him.

33 Therefore Jesus said, “For a little while longer I am with you, then I go to Him who sent Me.

34 You will seek Me, and will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come.” 

35 The Jews then said to one another, “Where does this man intend to go that we will not find Him? He is not intending to go to the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks, is He?

36 What is this statement that He said, ‘You will seek Me, and will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come’?”


DISCUSSION:

Verses 25 – 28: Christ hears the people in the Temple, mumbling amongst themselves about who He is and where He came from, and “Aren’t they seeking to kill Him?” Our Lord has no fear in answering that they KNOW who He is, they KNOW where he came from and He stated that they DID NOT KNOW who sent Him, for “I am from Him, and He sent me.” The crowd knew that Jesus was saying He was from God, and that God sent Him, and that FURTHERMORE, they did not know GOD.

Oh My! How the mumbling must have turned into pointed fingers and lashings of the tongue and despicable nature!

Verses 30 – 34: The officials were STILL seeking to kill Him, but God held them back, for IT WAS NOT YET HIS TIME. We have to remember that with God, timing is everything! We must learn and strive to WAIT on God’s timing! In this way, we are believing Him without a doubt, we are showing our faith, AND we are standing our ground WITH GOD! He rewards us with His Healing, His answer to our prayers, in His Time, as we are being groomed to receive His blessings.

From FaceBook Friend Andrew Gill: Just because Jesus paid for our healing, doesn't mean you will automatically manifest the benefits. You need to reach out and receive what Jesus did for you by faith! Jesus died for the sins of the world, but that doesn't mean that the world will be saved, because they didn't (all) reach out with faith and receive what Jesus did for them!”

Jesus continues to tell the officials that they really have no Power over Him; that the Power comes from God and in God’s time. LET THIS SINK IN. God’s TIMING. God would make everything happen all right, but it would be in HIS TIME.

Verses 35 – 36: Jesus tells them that He will go to a place where they cannot go. Jesus is always “one up” on them, isn’t He? He leaves them confused. Does he mean a “real” place, like going to the Greeks? Or what? I can imagine they are speechless and in utter shock. Can you?

HOW MUCH DID THE LORD GIVE YOU? WHY?

“Love Song”
By Third Day

Just to be with you.

HEALING SERVICE: Lord, help us to take you at Your Word, even if we do not fully comprehend it. As Christ laid His hands on the people and healed them, He also said that we would do the same. Let us do so, with Your guidance and that of the Holy Spirit, so that all things that you predicted shall come to pass. I am going to ask for EACH ONE of you to put your hand on the screen, either to pray for someone else's healling, or for your own healing:

 Let the people use their faith as they put their hands on the screen and receive or pray for healing:

“Father God, Your Word says that “By His stripes, we were healed.” Christ took on the severe, bloody scourging on his back, for our sins. He freed us from our sins and iniquities, OUR SICKNESSES,  by taking on these slashings for us, forevermore. Thank you, Jesus, as we now proclaim ourselves as accepting what Christ did for us. We touch the screen and pray for healing in our bodies, healing that only you can provide. (We pray and ask only one time.)

(From then on, we thank God and Glorify Him) We thank you, Lord! We Praise Your Holy Name! We Glorify Your Name above all Names! Thank you for by Your stripes, we were healed! Thank you for my continued healing, day by day, perfection upon perfection! Amen!

CAN THE LORD JESUS SAVE YOU?

INVITATION AND RENEWAL PRAYER: If you have not yet said this prayer to accept Jesus as your Lord and Personal Savior, you can do so now: “Lord, I have not accepted You fully into my heart, or I did once long ago, and have strayed. I ask that you forgive my sins, enter my heart, and stay with me forevermore. I thank you that by grace alone, and your death on the cross, I can enter Heaven to be together with you.”

If you have said this prayer in earnest, please stay after the service for Counsel and make sure we get a Mentor for you, so that we can disciple you from a ‘baby’ Christian to a ‘fully-grown’ Christian who is then able to lead. We then go out to all ends of the earth, spreading the Gospel or supporting those that do so. Amen!


Communion
By Third Day


PREPARATION FOR HOLY COMMUNION: Until I studied it myself, I did not realize how seriously God judges us for taking Holy Communion. It is Holy. We are not to take it if we are sinning, or it is blasphemy against the Lord. I encourage you not to take Holy Communion until after watching my short version (31 min) of my Bible Study on it: https://youtu.be/RIW44PDgM6w and the Sermon version at: https://youtu.be/cGExxw8gzdk *********************


SAY "THE LORD'S PRAYER”, AS CHRIST TOLD US TO PRAY:
Let us take Holy Communion together, after saying the Our Father, as Jesus told us to pray together:

THE OUR FATHER
Our Father, Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy Will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory.
Forever and ever. Amen.

TOGETHER WE PARTAKE IN HOLY COMMUNION:
We proceed with Holy Communion, in Remembrance of Christ’s death:

TAKING THE BODY: We break off the bread, eat it as His Body, and remember His death for us. Amen. As we chew it and swallow it, it cleanses our bodies and our souls. (Eat the bread.)

TAKING THE BLOOD: We drink the wine that signifies His blood, for the shedding of all sins, as Christ died and took our place for us on The Cross. (Drink the wine.)

You may sit or kneel after taking Holy Communion, remembering Christ’s death for you. Christ does not want us to forget it.

DONATIONS and NEEDS:  “Will YOU ROB GOD? You rob Him in your tithes and offerings.” Steven Mwesigwa needs $350/mo to feed the orphans. May people “adopt” a child for $30/mo. May our tithes and offerings cheerfully be given to meet their needs, Lord, as You love a “Cheerful Giver.”
GO PUT YOUR FUNDS IN A SHOEBOX OR A JAR:  Save your pennies and give once/month, or once/3 months, if you can. This is your time to go sock it away. Do this happily!

As we tithe to God, Worship Him even in the STORMS of your life! Even on your SICKEST DAYS! Be a cheerful giver!

Sing like never before, people of God! Be slow to anger, too~ Where is your kindheartedness to the Orphans? Find it!

Please go gather money for the orphans. We are their hands ~ we are their parents ~ we are THEIR ANSWER TO PRAYER ~ ~ ~ ! And God is sending MORE orphans to us! AMEN! HOW BLESSED WE ARE!

Search for the Lord's ways! Run for God's heart! Who knows that your soul BURNS FOR THE LORD? What are you doing to show it?

Do you BURN for the Lord? Can you restore it?

Reach into your heart and bring GOD outside of yourself to SHOW IT TO OTHERS!

CLOSING PRAYER BY KIRSTIE: Dear Lord, We bow our heads and put our hands together to pray for those who are critically ill, and haven't got long left to live. We need the people to donate to feed the hungry children in Kampala, Africa. We also pray for those in need in Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Turkey, the Ukraine, and other countries, who have lost their loved ones, and whose loved ones are still fighting in today. We pray for our elderly men and women all over the world. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen!

************************************************************



To be “born again,” please note the PLAN OF SALVATION:

1.   All have sinned. (Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8)
2.   There is a penalty for sin (Romans 6:23; John 3:18)
3.   You cannot save yourself (Titus 3:5; James 2:10)
4.   Salvation has been provided (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; John 14:6)
5.   The conditions are simple:    A. Repent (Luke 13:3); B Confess (1 John 1:9; Romans 10:9); C. Believe (Acts 16:31)
6.   Now is your time for a Decision (Joshua 24:15; 2 Corinth 6:2)

Do you repent for your sins?
Do you confess your sins to the Lord?
Do you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, into your heart?

If you answer “yes” to all these questions, you are now a Born Again Christian! We love you! Welcome to the body of Christ! Confess it with your mouth, or write it here! You must say it out loud! Praise the Lord!

Go now, and Spread the Word of God to all the Ends of the Earth!
