CHIDREN OF GOD, in our PRAYER, PRAISE and WORSHIP SERVICE for this SUNDAY MORNING, we present to you our CHRISTMAS STORY beginning with the Birth of John as God’s divine plan unfolds for many UNBELIEVEING MINDS.  It is a story that many of us have read and studied over a long period of time, but in it all there is always a ray of HOPE and INSPIRATION for a greater tomorrow when we celebrate this beautiful story of the unfolding birth of OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.  Our lesson today is simply title:  “BELIEVE!”  Allow this word to sink deep into your sub-conscious minds, and renew your Spirit daily whenever doubt begin to creep in.  Let us lift up God in high praise for His mighty works, for He is worthy to be PRAISED.

LET US PRAY FOR UNBELIEVING MINDS:

Eternal God, Our Heavenly Father, we thank you for those among us who have believed, and we seek divine intervention into the minds of those that are still wavering in their faith.  For we know that with you Heavenly Father, all things are possible to those who believe.  Transforming a world of unbelieving minds may seem to be an impossible task for some, but we as believers are trusting you Heavenly Father, because we know that it is possible.  You sent your only Son into an unbelieving world as a gift that those among us who would believe in Him should not perish but be transformed into a brand new creature and enjoy eternal life.  Through our prayers Heavenly Father we are seeking the same transformation for those unbelieving minds among us today to come into the full knowledge and understanding that you are God, and they can do nothing without you.  And for this Christmas Season, our prayers are for those unbelieving minds to know that Jesus is truly the reason for this Season.  Amen!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE READING:

For with God, nothing shall be impossible.  (Luke 1:37)

Background Scriptures for today’s lesson is from (Luke 1:1-37)

TODAY’S MESSAGE IS TITLE:  “BELIEVE”

Our Christmas Story is a true and profound statement by God who can do all things but fail.  All He asks us to do is to BELIEVE.  In this story, God performed one of the greatest miracles known to man, yet we find it very difficult to BELIEVE when the simplest things are right before our very own eyes.  WHY?  Do we not know that God can never lie, if He lies He will denied Himself.  So why do we continue not to BELIEVE the word of God when the Word of God is truth in itself?

Perhaps, like so many before us, we want God to show us a sign.  Let us examine for a moment the High Priest Zachariah, who was a minister of God that worked at the Temple managing its upkeep, teaching the people the Scriptures, and directing the worship services.  When God sent His Angel Gabriel to tell Zachariah that he and His Wife Elizabeth was going to have a son Zachariah words came perilously close to doubt, [disbelief].  Zachariah wanted more than the word from this Heavenly visitor, he wanted a sign from God.

ZACHARIAH QUESTIONS  GOD'S MESSANGER GABRIEL

ZACHARIAH QUESTIONS GOD’S MESSANGER GABRIEL

So Zachariah question the angle by asking, “How can I know this will happen?”  At that very moment Zachariah saw only the obstacles and not the possibilities of the Good News that the Angel Gabriel was presenting to him from God.  His thoughts were that he and Elizabeth were both well past their childbearing years.  In Zachariah mind, he could not see, comprehend or even understand how God could perform such a miracle and place such a burden on him and his wife at this late stage in their lives.  Gabriel explained to Zachariah by stating, “I am Gabriel; I stand in the very presence of God.”  (Luke 1:19)

When we do not BELIEVE and allow doubt to creep in and rule over our unbelieving minds, it will result in some sort of punishment.  God has His own ways of letting us know that He is not please with our actions, and just like any loving parent, He will punish us for our unbelieving minds.  In Zachariah unbelieving mind, he asked for a sign and was quickly granted his request.  He would be unable to speak until the Child was born.  The angel’s words would certainly come true at the proper time, whether Zachariah BELIEVED or not.  God’s plan had been set in motion and nothing could stop it.  (LUKE 1:20)

Zachariah and Elizabeth had been childless for many years and God had promised a son to them, and God kept His promise.  The promise came even before this child was ever conceived.  God was waiting for the right time to ENCOURAGE them and take away their disgrace of not being able to bare a child in their early childbearing years.  Elizabeth soon realized that in this impossible pregnancy, God had performed a MIRACLE.  (Luke 1:23-25)

What God has done for Zachariah and Elizabeth, He will do the same for you.  With God, nothing is impossible, all you have to do is, “BELIEVE!”

THE STORY OF THE BIRTH OF JOHN

When Elizabeth was full-term in her pregnancy, she bore a son, Her neighbors and relatives, seeing that God had over whelmed her with mercy, celebrated with her.

On the eighth day, they came to circumcise the child and were calling him Zachariah after his father. But his mother intervened: “No. He is to be called John.”

“But,” they said, “no one in your family is named that.” They used sign language to ask Zachariah what he wanted him named.

Asking for a tablet, Zachariah wrote, “His name is to be John.” That took everyone by surprise. Surprise followed surprise—Zachariah’s mouth was now open, his tongue loose, and he was talking, praising God!

TODAY’S ALTER CALL: 

If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me:  “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives.  I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins.  If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE  in glory.”

We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers.  You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us.  We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions.  May the saving grace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

CLOSING PRAYER:

Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith—to the only wise Godbe glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.

Count yourself Blessed this Christmas

THIS CHRISTMAS COUNT YOURSELF BLESSED EVERY TIME PEOPLE PUT YOU DOWN

CHILDREN OF GOD, it is truly the SEASON to be filled with joy, for the Lord our God has bestowed upon each one of us many great and wonderful BLESSINGS throughout this year.  As the year begin to come to a close and the birth of our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST, is near, the Spirit of the Lord prompted me to remind each of you just how BLESSED you readily are because He spoke these words as a reminder from HIS SERMON ON THE MOUNT.

When Jesus saw his ministry drawing huge crowds, he climbed a hillside. Those who were apprenticed to him, the committed, climbed with him. Arriving at a quiet place, he sat down and taught his climbing companions. This is what he said:

 “You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.

 “You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.

 “You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.

“You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.

“You’re blessed when you care. At the moment of being ‘care-full,’ you find yourselves cared for.

“You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.

“You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.

 “You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom.

“Not only that—count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don’t like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble. (Matthew 5:1-12 MSG)

 

 

Brothers and Sisters, the Lord has spoken these words to you.  I ENCOURAGE you to stay focus and keep your eye on the prize during this CHRISTMAS SEASON.  Never forget that JESUS is the reason for the SEASON.

The Gift of giving is Remembering

BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS for they shall be called the sons of God.” (Matthew 5:9; NKJV)

REMEMBERING OTHERS DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON:

christmas 05

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

The time of year many have anxiously anticipated is upon us, now the process of decision and choice making has begun full forced. It is the time of year in which feasting and celebration are shared within many homes and communities world -wide; therefore, let us enhance the spirit by REMEMBERING OTHERS DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

There are those who are less fortunate among us that a friendly gesture can bring healing to their soul, for they seek not the material things of this world, but spiritual. Jesus gave each of us a message, a thought to always ponder especially during the holiday season, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God” (Matthew 5:9; NKJV). Where there is disharmony, discord, chaos and greed, the time is now to mend and repair, restore and renew by REMEMBERING OTHERS DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

Somewhere there is someone that will not hear the words “Joy to the World” or “Silent Night,” because of the sound of war raging in their communities. Somewhere there will be some child that will not experience the happiness of opening gifts with moments of glee. Somewhere someone will spend Christmas alone because they have no family to share it with. The list it seems is endless, but the joy of Christmas is really all about the “Birth” the “Gift of a Savior.” For the scriptures reminds us this way, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder. And his name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.” While REMEMBERING OTHERS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON think on these things for it is from the heart love is freely given.

As the joy and spirit of Christmas continue to unfold, take a moment and reflect on how blessed you truly are, WHILE REMEMBERING OTHERS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON in a very special way.

May you find the gift of peace and contentment as you approach and become participants in this holiday season.

Wednesday Inspirational and Motivational Service (Let there be peace on Earth)

 

CHRISTMAS THE SIGN OF PEACE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

CHRISTMAS THE SIGN OF PEACE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

CHILDREN OF GOD, let us begin today’s service by uniting our minds together as one in the Body of Christ, as we pray for PEACE to break out all over the world. Let us pray for one another as we lay aside our difference and allow our light to shine so that others will see the love of God shinning forth from deep inside our hearts.

LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH AND LET IT BEGIN WITH ME!  The question we should ask ourselves is this, “Is peace possible (personal or worldwide)?” Now I ask you to take a moment and examine that question or thought and consider this; that in order to live in a world where peace exists we have to get it right or else there will be no peace.

Now as you think deeply on this very important question, remember the season that we are living in and know that Jesus is the reason for the season.  Click on this video clip and allow the calmness of the moment to come over you, then complete the reading of this important lesson.

 

Jesus came and preached peace to those who had never heard of God and to those who had heard of him, so we all stand the same ground, and share in an offer of hope and promise. For he is our peace (Ephesians 2:14 KJV); The Lord will give strength to his people; and will bless his people with peace (Psalm 29:11).  Christ brought us together through his death on the cross; through him we share the same Spirit and have equal access to the Father. We all belong here, we are part of Gods’ plan, and it is through him we find peace by surrendering our lives to his will and being obedient to his call. We are able to reach others when we allow our lives to demonstrate working of the Holy Spirit within and around us as we share the gift of love.

Scripture reminds us that the one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us (1 John 3:24 NIV)).

Peace keeper:

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, and The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end (Isaiah 9:6-7 KJV).  With our mind set on pleasing God, (total surrender), peace will come.

 

Scripture reminds us that: He will keep us in perfect peace when our mind is centered on him and we put all our trust in him.  So we must learn to trust In the Lord forever; for the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength (Isaiah 26: 3-4).  Paul reminds us to: Be strong in the Lord, take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. Put them to use so you will be able to stand up to every-thing the Devil throws your way.

Be prepared;  truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words, learn how to apply them, pray hard and long, pray for each other and keep your eyes open. (Ephesians 6: 10-18 MGS).

So in the midst this holiday season let us remain focused in all we do and think while remembering to keep Jesus at the center of our activities. Praise the Lord our God and worship at his footstool for he is holy. Praise the Lord our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the Lord our God is holy.

Let this be a time of celebration so much that people every-where will honor our Savior with thanksgiving and praise.  May our hearts be at peace, and let us remember to take a moment out of our day and pray for peace around the world, remembering that there is power in prayer. Jesus is our open door for the peace we seek.

Lift up your eyes toward heaven and thank God for his Son; let this be a time of sharing and giving love to others out of the depth of our hearts, love that is genuine. May peace be yours!

NOW LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH, GOOD WILL TOWARDS ALL MEN, AND LET IT BEGIN WITH ME!  In Jesus name we pray, AMEN!

Let us magnify the Lord

christmas 04

LET US  MAGIFY THE LORD for he is the greatest gift of all as you celebrate this holiday season. This gift does not come contained in a box or wrapped expensively. There is no variation in the price of this gift because the price has been paid in full, which is why God gave to each of us the greatest gift of all, his Son. “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a Son and they shall call his name Immanuel, which is translated, “God with us” (Matthew 1:23; NKJV).

christmas 02

When you decorate that tree, sing those carols filled with laughter and joy, remember the reason for it all. Jesus, a tiny newborn baby born in a stable, wrapped in pieces of cloth and laid in a feeding trough, just for you. So great was the gift, “… after Jesus was born in Bethlehem…wise men from the East came…asking, “Where is he who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East, and have come to worship him” (Matthew 2:1-2). “…, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy…when they saw the young child… and fell down and worshiped him…they presented gifts to him…”(Matthew 2:9-11).  It’s Christmas a joyous time of the year; so, LET US MAGNIFY THE LORD for he is worthy.

christmas 01

Christmas tradition has been shared from one generation to the next, celebrated culturally expressing gratitude for the gift of a Savior, a King. When you kneel in prayer, remember the children around the world that the true meaning of Christmas will never lose its’ meaning and be replaced by the cares of this world. Pray that they will learn to recognize the value of such a gift as the baby Jesus. Join hands with family and love ones, set aside differences and LET US  MAGNIFY THE LORD this holiday season.

Hallelujah! Praise God in his holy house of worship, praise him under the open skies;
Praise him for his acts of power, praise him for his magnificent greatness; Praise with a blast on the trumpet, praise by strumming soft strings; Praise him with castanets and dance, praise him with banjo and flute; Praise him with cymbals and a big bass drum, praise him with fiddles and mandolin. Let every living, breathing creature praise God!  Hallelujah!  (Psalm 150 MSG).
