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.

Sunday Prayer Praise and Worship Service 101 (The Birth of a Baby)

SUNDAY PRAYER PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE 101 THE BIRTH OF A BABY CHANGES THE ENTIRE WORLD

Isaiah 9:6a “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Good Morning CHILDREN OF GOD, we have entered into the Lord’s class room of higher learning this morning to continue our Christmas Service and the Spirit of Christmas in lifting up our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the highest praises and thanksgiving for our deliverances, as we celebrate His magnificent birth more than 2000 years ago.  We are truly blessed to be in His Holy presence this morning as one people to praise and honor God for sending us a Savior.  Therefore, let us together share in what God has set before us this day with this short video clip of Silent Night.

SONG OF PRAISE SILENT NIGHT:

Mary is the type of woman who puts her faith into action.  She not only says :Lord your will be done, but she also hurries to see God at work in the life of her relative Elizabeth.  The journey to Judea that Mary took was not a simple drive to the next town.  It was a difficult journey that would have taken at least three days at that time.  Mary did not let that stop her from going to Elizabeth rejoicing with her, and praising the Lord for fulfilling His promises.  Click on this short video clip and let’s watch together.

LET US PRAY FOR PEACE:

Father in Heaven, we honor you and we praise you this day for sending us a divine savior to bring joy into our hearts and peace on earth to all mankind.  We know that there is much work to be done to change the harden hearts and unbelieving minds; that we as a people can live together as one people serving one God and have complete peace without wars and fighting among each other.  But we as believers know that you are God and God all by yourself, therefore Father, we pray for divine intervention in this world, in this season that the hearts and minds of mankind everywhere will be changed in such a way that peace and goodwill towards all people will break out all over the world.  We seek this peace in the name of Jesus, AMEN!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE THE BIRTH OF JESUS FORETOLD  (LUKE 1:26-30 ESV)

In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”  Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God.

THE GOOD NEWS WORSHIP MESSAGE:

An Angel promises the birth of Jesus to Mary.  Six months after Gabriel delivered God’s message to Zechariah, God sent the angel with another message, this time to a virgin named Mary.  The angel Gabriel had also appeared to the prophet Daniel more than five hundred years earlier.  Each time Gabriel appeared he brought important messages from God, this time was no exception, he was bringing THE GOOD NEWS to a virgin named Mary.  Let’s watch and see her reaction.

Our God is truly an awesome God, and His message and gift to us is a powerful one.  Now let us conclude our Praise and Worship Service with our final video of Silent Night.

Believe that with God nothing is Impossible Lesson 4

Believe that with God nothing is Impossible Lesson 4

Pastor Davis plays the role of the Priest Zacharias in the play BELIEVE

Pastor Davis plays the role of the Priest Zacharias in the play BELIEVE

The Life-Light was the real thing: Every person entering Life he brings into Light. He was in the world, the world was there through him, and yet the world didn’t even notice. He came to his own people, but they didn’t want him. But whoever did want him, who believed he was who he claimed and would do what he said, He made to be their true selves, their child-of-God selves. These are the God-begotten, not blood-begotten, not flesh-begotten, not sex-begotten.

John 1:12-13 MSG

My brothers and sisters, today I encourage you as you prepare yourselves to go into the world and face the most dangerous enemy of all times, that you girdle your entire body and mind up with a mustard seed of faith; and when you do, look the enemy in the eye and tell him,“I BELIEVE TH AT WITH GOD NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE,”  and this moment of trials and tribulations, they to shall pass.  Because I am living in the light and the light is shinning in me and through me.  “I BELIEVE!”

Faith and doubt cannot live in the same house, one are the other is going to rule.  Which do you want to rule over your life?  The cold hard choice we make concerning these two very important people in our lives will determine our destiny.  We cannot serve two masters that on this day, which we are going to serve, and then begin to live our lives accordingly?

Now my brothers and sisters I want you to listen and understand this very important story of Zacharias the Priest and how God dealt with him when he doubted the word of God.  You see both Zacharias and his wife were up in age when the angel of the Lord approached him and told him that he and his wife were going to have a baby. And Zacharias expressed all the pent-up doubt in his heart.

But the angel reassured him, “Don’t fear, Zachariah. Your prayer has been heard. Elizabeth, your wife, will bear a son by you. You are to name him John. You’re going to leap like a gazelle for joy, and not only you—many will delight in his birth. He’ll achieve great stature with God.

 “He’ll drink neither wine nor beer. He’ll be filled with the Holy Spirit from the moment he leaves his mother’s womb. He will turn many sons and daughters of Israel back to their God. He will herald God’s arrival in the style and strength of Elijah, soften the hearts of parents to children, and kindle devout understanding among hardened skeptics—he’ll get the people ready for God.”

Zachariah said to the angel, “Do you expect me to believe this? I’m an old man and my wife is an old woman.”

This is the exact same way that Abraham expressed himself to God when God told him that he was going to have a son. You see my brothers and sister, Zachariah thinking is the way we think by being in the world. Our thoughts like his not being centered in the Spirit of the Lord and what the Lord can do when we get out of the way and let God have His way.

The angel of the Lord continued by saying, “I am Gabriel, the sentinel of God, sent especially to bring you this glad news. But because you won’t believe me, you’ll be unable to say a word until the day of your son’s birth. Every word I’ve spoken to you will come true on time—God’s time.” (Luke 1:13-20 MSG.

You see my brothers and sisters, because Zacharias had doubted, he would lose the power of speech until the child was born.  Whenever a believer entertains doubts concerning God’s word, he loses his testimony and his song.  Unbelief of the lips, and they remain sealed until faith returns and bursts forth in praise and witness.

Gabriel the angel of the Lord continue to pursue the mission which God had dispatched him on and entered into the space of Mary whom God had blessed and highly favored, and this is what he spoke to her, he begin by saying, “and did you know that your cousin Elizabeth conceived a son, old as she is? Everyone called her barren, and here she is six months pregnant! Nothing, you see, is impossible with God.”

And Mary said,

Yes, I see it all now:
I’m the Lord’s maid, ready to serve.
Let it be with me36
just as you say.

Then the angel left her. (Luke 1:37-38 MSG)

My brothers and sisters “BELIEVE” that is the lesson the Lord wants us to learn. Believe that with God all things are possible. Stop living your life in doubt, allowing your faith to waiver and  become like the motions of the oceans, always going back and forth.  When you learn to believe, a whole new world of possibilities will open unto you.  “BELIEVE, BELIEVE” my brothers and sisters and you too will receive the favor of the Lord.

 

LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH MEETS REALITY

LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH MEETS REALITY

WHEN TRUTH AND REALITY MEETS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

WHEN TRUTH AND REALITY MEETS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

This week we will be studying Romans 12:1-2, learning how we can live for Christ when Truth meets Reality.  The Bible tells us to know the Truth and the Truth will set us Free.  How we get to that truth will be the basics of our teaching this week.  Here is what Romans 12:1-2 says, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.  This is the reality of the truth we must come to know if we are to live for Christ.

Now let me share this truth with you as we begin this week in the newness of the Holy Spirit working through us.  There is but one religion, and that religion is the religion of Truth.  There is also but one error, and that error is of self.  Sometimes we allow self to get in the way of Truth.  Where self is, we will not find Truth, where Truth is self is not.  Therefore, let us discover Truth within ourselves about ourselves and move self out of the way and learn to live each day for Christ.  Jesus declared that if any man wishes to be His Disciple, he must deny himself daily.

Finally, let us learn that self is the denial of Truth.  Truth is the denial of self.  As you let self die, you will be reborn in Truth.  As you cling to self, truth will be hidden from you.  Now know this,  “LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH WILL MEET REALITY!
