BIBLE STUDY SCRIPTURE
John 7:53 – John 8:11


7:53 Everyone went to his home.

Chapter 8

1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

2 Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them.

3 The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court,

4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act. 

5 Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?”

6 They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground.

7 But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”

8 Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.

9 When they heard it, they began to go out one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the center of the court.

10 Straightening up, Jesus said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?”

11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “I do not condemn you, either. Go. From now on sin no more.”



DISCUSSION:

Christ forgave the sins of an adulterous woman caught “in the act.” The righteous indignation of the “religious” were there only to test Christ. Each one of them was filled with his own sin, lust, guilt, and shame. And Christ knew this. Christ did not debate this, yell, or scream. He was silent. We need to learn from this story.

First, that Jesus paid the price for our sins while he was scourged and then crucified. He did this why?

Jesus LOVES us. He DIED for you and me because He wants us to be with him, as the body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, and LOVE us forever. Also, he knew that we need to come to Him of our own free will, and ask for forgiveness.

For today’s further discussion, let us watch this video. It takes clips out of the movie, The Passion of the Christ, so please remove all children from the room. This is Rated R.

RATED R


Let us pray. Thank you, Christ, for all you did for us, out of LOVE. You were the sacrificial Lamb who paid the price for our sins, our healings, and our redemption back to the Lord God. You suffered and you died for us. Thank you, Lord. Let us be deserving, and let us show that love to others. Amen.

Please pray in silence to the Lord Jesus Christ.

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 for us.

Let us do this, so that all things that you predicted shall come to pass. I am going to ask for EACH ONE of you to either put your hand on the screen or to lay hands upon yourself. Then, either to pray for someone else's healing, or for your own healing.

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

“Father God, Your Word says, “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 lashings 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 healing my disease!”

Say, “Thank you for my continued healing, day by day, perfection upon perfection! In Jesus’ name, Amen!”

“Above All”
By Michael Smith


INVITATION AND RENEWAL PRAYER: If you have not yet accepted Jesus as your Lord and Personal Savior, you can do so in faith, 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 as my Personal Lord and Savior. I thank you that by grace alone, and your death on the cross, I can enter Heaven to be together forever with you.”

If you have said this prayer in earnest, please let us know, so 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!

“I Believe”
By Mike Winger


PREPARATION FOR HOLY COMMUNION: Until I studied it myself, I did not realize how seriously God judges us for taking Holy Communion.  If you do not take it correctly, this may be why you are weak, sick, or sleeping (die).

It is Holy. We are not to take it if we are sinning, or it is blasphemy against yourself, and the Lord. Just sit it out instead.

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

Do NOT take HOLY COMMUNION until after watching videos, please. I do not wish to lead anyone to sin.


SAY THE “OUR FATHER”, AS CHRIST TAUGHT 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, as Christ commanded, in Remembrance of His 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 renews our spirits.
(Hold it up in the air) Say aloud:

“This is the body of Christ, in remembrance of His death, as He was beaten and scourged, humiliated, and walked up the mountain to be nailed on the Cross with a crown of thorns.

It will course through all your veins, as all food does, to fill your inner body with energy and strength. “Let it be so.” (EAT THE BREAD).

TAKING THE BLOOD: We sip the wine, drinking it as His blood, remembering His Death for us. Amen. As we swallow, it cleanses our bodies and our renews our spirits.  (Hold it up in the air) Say aloud:

“This is the blood of Christ, in remembrance of His death, as it was shed for all men and women, so He stood in our place for forgiveness of all sins.”  (DRINK THE WINE.)

It will course through all your veins, as all food does, to fill your inner body with energy and strength. “Let it be so.”

Sit or kneel prayerfully after taking Holy Communion, remembering Christ’s death for us. Christ does not want us to forget it.

TITHES AND OFFERINGS:  “Will YOU ROB GOD? You rob Him in your tithes and offerings.”

We thank Dale Lee Masters  for setting up a Crowdfunding Effort we can permanently use for givers, and we thank Deva Andrews for personally doing her best to verify the authenticity of those requesting funds. She has discovered a charity foundation started by Billy Graham’s son, called Samaritan’s Purse. Hat’s OFF to you both!


We have several missionary efforts that need our funding, and are we blessed to give? Yes, for the Lord said it is better to give than to receive.

We have Steven Mwesigwa who needs $240 for orphan hospital bills, so he can feed the orphans.  Please be in direct touch.
We have Jahanzaiblove Jahanzaib who has needed $100 for food and supplies for his two children for 2 weeks. Please be in direct touch.

We have Aamir Aslam in a small village, who has needed $100 for sick orphans. Please be in direct touch.

And we pray for all those in need of basic living needs, Lord. Let our ministry reach out and touch lives in all nations. Let us feed the orphans and widows.

SONG OF DEDICATION TO THE LORD

“I Can Only Imagine”
By MercyMe


CLOSING PRAYER BY KIRSTIE: Dear Lord, we come to you at this hour of need to ask you to make a way when we see no way.

We ask you Lord to be our guide and to hold us closely to Your side. Please give us love, strength and courage for each new day. We ask you to lead us in your steps to the doors of Heaven when we take our last breath. We ask you, Lord to send your Angels to watch over our loved ones when we come into your arms to be by your side.

Let our souls find peace of mind, let our hearts beat for you, Lord. We lift our heads and arms up high to Worship you Lord. In Jesus’ Name, We Pray, Amen!


CLOSING SONG by Kirstie:

“God Will Make a Way”
By Don Moen



DISMISSAL: After the Dismissal Song, you are dismissed. Go in love and peace to spread The Word unto all nations, so that all can come to know the glory and power and love of God. Amen.


DISMISSAL SONG:

“Amazing Grace”
By Jotta A.

Go now in the peace and love of Jesus Christ. Be the beautiful Bride He desires so much. Die to yourself and become alive to Him, daily. See you on Sunday at 1:00 pm for Praise & Worship!

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

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!
