Take it! Claim your Healing

Winter has arrived in Florida. Some of us are getting a little frost on our tropical plants and some of us have covered plants with sheets and others brought the most delicate ones into our patios and lanai’s. In our home this past Wednesday, we were warm in the Lord and taught about five healing realities that are ours to TAKE. Click here for the complete healing teaching. Those five realities are described further. They are: The Word, Communion, Prayer, New Birth and Gifts of Healing. Remember that we are already healed according to what the Bible says in,

I Peter 2:24, Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. AND

Isaiah 53:5

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

When something is said twice, it is established. We are and were healed by the works of Jesus Christ. We are healing and have the power to heal others. Lets get busy, making the healing realities a part of our everyday lives! Check out our page on Preaching, Teaching and Healing page for more teachings.

Grace is the Source of…

Thursday December 14, 2017 Christine taught on Grace. Charis is the Greek word for grace. She shared many forms of charis and their meanings. John 1:17 was our starting verse, For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. She also showed us that grace is the course of many things including salvation, Acts 15:11; believing, Acts 18:27  ; and justification, Romans 3:24. She also described grace and how grace relates to believers. Her teaching is posted on our webpage: Preach, Teach and Heal.

Grace and Truth Came by Jesus Christ

This past week we moved our bible fellowship to Wednesdays. We were missing too many Thursday evenings to other commitments. We gathered around our table and shared again on Grace. This time, a teaching Rick prepared a few years ago, and hadn’t yet taught it. It is uploaded on our Fellowship page, scroll down to the new uploaded teaching. Our evening was filled with the Word and how in John 1:17, It is explained that The law was given by Moses but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Rick also taught about how Jesus Christ is not God and how the first part of John 1 explains that. When John wrote this Gospel in about 90 A.D., people were already mistaking the Messiah for God. After fellowship, we made chai lattes, shared sweets and best wishes for the upcoming Holidays. Bless you and keep you as you travel to visit family or family comes to you. Check out our page Teach, Preach and Heal for this teaching and more.

Blog for November 15, 2017 – Listening for God’s still small voice

Rick and I spent two weeks this past November, following one of our favorite Fall highways. We drove up to Pennsylvania to a shell show. We made a long days stop at Longwood Gardens, in Kennett Square, PA. Then drove to the Delaware shore to stay at Dewey Beach, DE. After several days we began our drive south along the Outer Banks. Rick posted many pictures from this trip, including two spectacular sunsets. We beach combed, ate plenty of seafood and enjoyed the cooler nights at Cape Hatteras and on Ocracoke Island, NC.

What I wanted to share with all of you is how we found Peace in our hearts on this trip. Many people look for a sign from God to guide them through their life. Instead of seeking a sign, we should listen for God always. Where will we hear his voice?

Watch and listen two the two short videos that accompany this blog. I found God’s voice in the falling rain and at the shore of the beach. Like it says in:

Psalm 23:2b He leadeth me beside the still waters.

Psalm 29:3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters.

1 Kings 19:12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

We find the still small voice of God when we listen, not to the roaring wind or mighty earthquakes, but in the quiet moments.

Blog for September 28, 2017, Our Sanctification

Once again, we gathered in the Batt Cave family room for our Bible Fellowship. Even though it is officially fall, and the days are getting shorter, the Batt Cave is full of sunshine. Irma trimmed our trees and exposed more of our yard to light. Our average temperatures are still in the low 90’s, which means, we have hot days and hot Bible on Thursday evenings.

What came to light, in our sharing of sanctification notes, is that we are set apart by God from non-believers by being and conducting ourselves as saints.

Set apart by God – hagios – G40, as stated in Ephesians 1:4; Romans 12:1

Become holy – hagiosune – G42, from Romans 1:4; and 1 Thes 3:13

Behave as saints – hagiasmos G38, see Romans 6:19; 1 Thes 4:7; 1 Corinthians 1:30

As God’s chosen ones, his saints, we are separated from the world by our believing, the Christ in you, holy spirit. Our job, as a saint, is to bring light to others so that they may make a free will choice to believe. We may not always be loved by those who live in the physical world, in fact they may hate us. We have jobs to do as sons and daughters of God. What sets us apart? We believe and act on the Word of God. We stay thankful. We nurture our spiritual walk.

Join us next week for a meal, song, and time in the Word. Bless you.

BLOG for Sept 21, 2017 Our Justification

On Thursday, Sept 21, we prayed for our fellow Floridians who were still without power and for all the workers who were working 16+ hour days to bring power and order back to us. As always, by God’s grace we have peace in our lives, even when the physical world is not very peaceful.

We brought together our notes and experiences and shared on our Identity in Christ – Justification. Justification – God’s legal decision to acquit man of guilt and sin and declare man accepted of Him. We did nothing to deserve God granting us justification. We can’t pray, work, grovel, pay, or beg for justification. God granted it to us by His grace. This sharing has three sections. First, How we received justification. Titus 3:7 reminds us that God justified us by his grace.

Titus 3:7

That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

The second section focused on How the adversary tries to trick us about our justification. Paul’s First letter to the Corinthians, reminds us of three ways the adversary (the devil) hides behind masks to get us to question our justification.

I Corinthians 4:3

But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.

The third section was about How we claim our justification and live justified. We spent the rest of our discussion in Romans 8 seeing how we can claim and live justified. We revisited Rick’s teaching on Romans Eight. We are not victims, like the adversary wants us to believe, we are more than conquerors as it says in Romans 8:37,

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Next week 9-28 , we are looking at our Sanctification, and the week after, 10-5, we are breaking bread together in an evening of food, music and the Word. Why don’t you join us?

We have set up a separate page where all our combined notes from the Identity in Christ weekend are filed. Click here.

September 9, Our Identity in Christ

It is Saturday morning in Southwest Florida. Not one of our regular Saturdays when we are up with Yoga, market strolling and then a leisurely lunch at one of our favorite spots. We are prepared, preparing for a little extra wind and rain from Miss Irma. She has been lingering in the Caribbean for sometime now, and we believe is now moving our way. Our God is powerful and mighty. See Psalm 91.

Our bible fellowship met this last Thursday and began our digging deeper into our weekend event, Our Identity in Christ. Our identity in Christ begins with our believing God’s Word, His promises and knowing we are a part of the body of Christ. The introduction to the major teachings is what we have to share with you today. We identify with Christ – the redeemer, the glorified and resurrected one. By His works, we are Justified, Righteous, Redeemed, Sanctified, and have the Ministry of Reconciliation.
