A Wednesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

Greetings SP Members, from God who loves you and from us who love you! Jesus Is Lord! Praise God!

PRAYER: "Glorious Father, Loving God! This morning, we are mindful of all the people being affected by the COLD artic blast that's crossing our nation. We are mindful of the Fire that's burning in Egypt, and of all the hatred and oppression that exist in this world. So we offer a prayer of intercession this morning on behalf of mankind. We pray that all will come to know that JESUS IS LORD od all: no matter what nationality, or race, or color; no matter what political belief thay may have. Oh Father, if we could only learn to replace Coldness, Fire, Hatred, and Oppression, the things of this world, with Your LOVE, the way of peace and joy, how much more blessed we would all be. Help us Lord, to be one of your faithful and powerful intercessors, of how much you love each and everyone of us, and why You gave us Jesus as Lord. This we pray in Jeus' powerful name, Amen!"

MESSAGE: What else does the Bible claim?
1. 2 Tim 3:16-17 - Claims that the Bible is the infallible revelation of Your Will for each and everyone of us.
a. All scripture is given by inspiration of God (God breathed).
b. It is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (Living right with God, God's way).
c. For what purpose? So that the man of God (that's you and me). may be perfect, thoroughly furnished (equipped) unto all good works.
d. Good works is what is needed in this world.
e. Good works is what God created in the world.
f. Good works is what is expected from us.
2. To that end, God made Jesus LORD!
a. We need Jesus in order to achieve perfection, the only thing God will accept.
b. We need Jesus in order to be thoroughly furnished (equipped) for good works.
3. What do you think about this? Do you think the world is in bad shape now? Where would the world be if we din't have Jesus to teach us and guide us?
4. To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God help us to understand His Word and Will, and guide us to His truth and blessings. In His Love, Vic.

A Tuesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Aloha SP Members! Jesus is Lord.....Praise God!

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Caring God! Just to know that You are always near when we pray, is a blessing. Thank You for being close to us when we pray; thank You for hearing our prayers and answering them. In your presence, we can always find transformation for our soul and for our lives. We draw close to You now and ask for an ever-increasing sense of your presence and influence. We ask that You would help us to pray more fervently each day, and that You would increase our faith to believe in your answers and that Jesus is Lord of our lives. This we pray in Jesus' precious name, Amen!"

MESSAGE: What claims does the Bible make?
1. Heb 11:6 - Claims that God does exist!
a.Without faith it is impossible to please God....WHY SHOULD WE PLEASE SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T EXIST?
b. For he that comes to God must believe that He is....WHY GO TO SOMEONE WHO ISN'T REAL?
c. And that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him....WHY SEEK AND EXPECT REWARDS FROM SOMEONE WHO ISN'T REAL?
2. Heb 11:7-40 - Provides evidence (proof) of men and women who lived "BY FAITH", that God is REAL!
3. Gen 1:1 - Introduces proof that God is Real and the CREATOR of all things, in heaven and on earth.
a.. God spoke creation into existence: "He spoke, He saw, He called, He made, He formed, and all was VERY GOOD".
b. Gen 1:26 - Proof that the Godhead were all present at the creation: "Let "US" (God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit) make man in "OUR" image".
4. What do you think about this? There are other proofs that God is REAL, as we shall seee as we continue this study. These are submitted as an introduction from the Bible....God's Message to you and me.....FOR WHAT PURPOSE?
a. To create "FAITH" in us, the element essential to eternal life: pleasing God and receiving His rewards (His promises).
b. What proof can you offer from your own life experiences?

May the riches of heaven be our blessing rewards today and forever.
In His Love, Vic.

    God is with me at all times. I turn to Him when I am uncertain, when I am unhappy, and when I need strength to stay on the right path. He is always there to guide me. I also turn to him in thanks and joy for the good things He gives to me. He answers those joyful prayers by granting me even more blessings!!

A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, January 31, 2011

Gooooooooooood Morning SP Members! Today, we begin a new series of lessons entitled: JESUS IS LORD!

PRAYER: " Heavenly Father, Glorious Lord! Thank you for giving us this time to study your Word. As we enter this study, we look to You for guidance, for knowledge, for understanding, and for wisdom. Open our hearts, our ears and our eyes so we may be more receptive to your Word. Let the engrafted Word be our Law and our way of life. Bless your Word and bless all who receive your Word with gladness. This we pray and ask this morning in the name of Jesus our Lord. Amen!"

MESSAGE: Are you " Doubt Free" that Jesus is Lord?
1. The question before us is this: "Why should we believe in God, in Jesus, or in the Bible"?
a. Where else can truth be found?
b. How else would we know what is good and what is evil?
c. How else could we learn of God's plan for us?
2. The purpose of this study is to examine the evidence of some of the most basic claims of the Bible.
3. Here is the challenge for this Study: "IF JESUS CAN DO WHAT MAN CANNOT DO, THEN GOD IS REAL, JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD, AND THE BIBLE IS GOD'S MESSAGE TO YOU AND ME".
4. What do you think about this? Are you "Doubt Free"? To Be Continued Tomorrow!
May God illuminate the way for us and bless us as we enter this study.
In His Love, Vic.

    I see God working through Jesus in my life every day! He has done things for me that I could never have done alone, and He answers my pryaers. They are not always the answers I am looking for or expect, but I am learning to trust in His will and have faith in what He wants for me.

A Sunday Morning Spiritual Hymn!

Sunday, January 30, 2011

Goooooooooooooood Morning SP Members!

Tomorrow we will begin a new series of lessons whose title is the same as today's hymn:

TITLE: JESUS IS LORD

1. Jesus is Lord, My Redeemer, How He loves me, how I love him.
He is risen, He is coming, Lord, come quickly, hallelujah.

2. What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear;
What a privilege to carry, Ev'ry-thing to God in prayer.

3. Hallelujah, hallelujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah!

May your worship to God be in Spirit and in Truth today as you honor Jesus as Lord of your life. In His Love, Vic,

A Saturday Morning Spiritual Hymn!

Saturday, January 29, 2011

Goooooooood Morning SP Members! I thought a hymn that would be fitting for the lessons we have just completed studying, would be good this morning: The Title: " Footsteps of Jesus"

1. Sweetly, Lord, have we heard thee calling, "Come, follow me!"
And we see where thy footsteps falling, Lead us to thee. REFRAIN

2. Tho they lead o'er the cold, dark mountain, Seeking His sheep.
Or along by Siloam's fountain, helping the weak: REFRAIN

3. If they lead thru the temple holy, Preaching the Word,
Or in homes of the poor and lowly, Serving the Lord. REFRAIN

4. By and By, thru the shining portals, Turning our feet,
We shall walk with the glad immortals, Heav'ns golden street. REFRAIN

REFRAIN: Footprints of Jesus, that make the pathway glow;
We will follow the steps of Jesus, Wher-e'r they go.

Tomorrow, we will share a hymn that will introduce the new series of lesson on Monday. Have a Terrific weekend and may heaven's blessings fill all your hearts with the love of God. In His Love, Vic.
