September 4, Our Identity in Christ

Our Identity in Christ September 2 & 3, Cocoa, Florida.

WOW! We had the most Word filled weekend event. There were around 250 people from at least 18 states. We saw old and met new brothers and sisters in Christ, from a variety of places including: Hawaii, New York, Colorado, and Montana. Everything about the weekend was well planned, well executed and well received. This included Word filled teachings and original music. There was an incredible evening of music-filled entertainment.

The main teachings were about our rights as sons and daughters of God. They include and are not limited to: Justification, Sanctification, Redemption, Righteousness, and the Ministry of Reconciliation. Each one was taught by a dynamic minister. There were also break out sessions. These were on: Ministering Healing, Traveling Light, and Freedom in Christ.

We listened with intent to each teaching, took copious notes, and marked passages in our bibles for further research. We wrote questions to be explored later. We gave and received hugs from fellow believers, sometimes more than once.

In the coming weeks, our Blog will cover these teachings and break out sessions. Look for this Friday’s Blog on more of what we learned this past weekend. The these verse for this event was Romans 6:4.

August 31: Trusting in God

Rick shared his teaching called Trusting in God. He reviewed two Hebrew words for trust – batach and chasah. Batach is trust – lean on, to trust, to be confident, and is used with that meaning in Proverbs 3:5. Chasah is also trust – where you take refuge, flee for protection, confide in, trust, an are confident as in Psalm 34:8. He said that when we trust in God we can claim His promises. Rick presented five.

  1. To supply all our needs, (II Corinthians 3:4-5)
  2. Protection so we can live without fear, (Psalm 56:3-4, 11)
  3. Guidance in our personal walk and service, (Psalm 119:105)
  4. Peace in our lives, (Isaiah 26:3)
  5. In our prayer lives, (Psalm 55:17, 22)

In his teaching, he presented more verses to illustrate how we can trust in God and claim His promises. Download it from our website. Visit our page on Preaching, Teaching and Healing for more Word. We had several fellow believers around the table with us last night. Here is a snapshot of us as we preach, teach and heal.

We are headed out to a weekend of Christian Fellowship. More about it next week. Let me close with Psalm 103: 1-5 – Bless the Lord…

August 24 Bible Fellowship – Trusting in the Lord

Last night, our bible fellowship started with a meal. We had, mahi mahi, conch, roasted vegetables and quinoa salad. Yum. Our appetites satiated, we dove into the Word, filling our spiritual appetites.

Christine taught on the topic, Trusting in the Lord. She had recently read Hebrews in the Message Bible and it gave her more understanding on how to trust and rest in the Lord. She presented a detailed examination of Proverbs 3:5 and 6. She shared about Hezekiah who trusted in the Lord. From the Word, she showed us several example of what we have when we trust in the Lord. Our conversation reminded Rick about his research and found he has 13 teachings on Trust. So, next week he is sharing on the word trust in the Hebrew. There are two main ones, batach and chasah.

From listening to an online teaching, I wanted to follow up on Psalms 16:11. Thou will shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. We took out the concordances and worked through the verse. See my write up on this and on Christine’s sharing at our web site: Preach, Teach and Heal: The Evolution of a Christian Home Fellowship.

What I’m loving in our fellowship at the table, is sitting with our bibles and concordances and digging into the word. A real 2 Timothy 2:15 moment. We like being self-governing, and self- supporting. Come, join us next week.

Being Reconciled back to God

August 10, 2017

Welcome to our fellowship. Tonight we had our first virtual attendee. We set up Face Time, put the iPad on a tripod and scooted our sister in Christ right up to the table. Sometimes, we love technology. Once again we gathered around our table for the Word. Rick shared on our ministry of reconciliation. Reconcile is about change.

We spent a lot of time in II Corinthians 5, and Romans 5. Rick explained the three Greek words translated “reconcile” both verb and noun usages. We examined the scriptures where this word is used. He clarified, I Corinthians 3:9 – For we are labourers together

We must remember to speak the Word, for people to hear. (Romans 10:12-15) When they believe and change – they get reconciled back to God. Download Rick’s complete teaching from our website, Preach, Teach and Heal: The Evolution of a Christian Home Fellowship.

Bible Study – August 3, 2017

Here it is, time for bible study in our home. I spent some time cleaning the house for our guests. Tonight we had folks over early for a spaghetti dinner. After we shared our meal, we cleaned off the table, got out our bibles and our sister in Christ shared on Living Sanctified. John 17: 14-19, Romans 12:1 & 2, and I John 2:15-17 were just a few of the scriptures we studied. We learned that sanctification comes from believing two things, as it says in Romans 10:9 and 10, “ 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. It’s not works, not prayer, not lots of complicated tasks. We also learned that sanctification is a starting point on our walk with God and our Lord Jesus Christ. We need to grow up into the Word, and then reconcile others to God. You can download Christine’s complete teaching from our page, Preach, Teach, and Heal: The Evolution of a Christian Home Fellowship. 

We also uploaded more of Rick’s teachings. you can download, read and share research based teachings. They are: Communion, Pentecost, Philippians Chapter 4, and Romans Chapter 8. Enjoy. Please Like our page and follow us. More next week.
