'I lay down and slept [safely]; I awakened, for the Lord sustains me. I will not be intimidated or afraid of the ten thousands Who have set themselves against me all around. ' Psalms 3:5-6 AMP
David gives me hope, if he can sleep so can I. For my God sustains me and Jesus has rescued us from sin and death.
Grace to you and peace from the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. And I hope you have a good sleep this weekend.
What a week?
It has been cold and I am also learning a lot.
I never used to understand the concept of Corinthians, well I don’t think I do now anyway. Learning to read the Bible from God’s eyes and what He is saying and not making it about me.
The Bible is worth learning if the enemy can do anything to take away the word of God and create multiples of counterfeit then it is worth investing our lives in it. Because it is very valuable.
As I come to the end of 1 Corithians chapter 14: it becomes clear: this is about the Corithians and Paul receiving a letter and then responding to the letter.
It gives us a lamp that lights the path so we don’t make the same mistakes but learn from it.
Spiritual Self indulgence is not the goal It is a monstrous evil It shows it ugly head in the church For it must come to fed always It is never there to be edify It is never there to give to others So one must kill it
As Paul continues to teach the Corinthians, one truly have to look at Jesus
The wind and wave obey Him We all have a choice The word of God is not written to disrupt the body The word of God is not written to cause confusion The beauty about God Is allowing us to ask questions 'All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honourably with personal integrity and moral courage]; ' 2 Timothy 3:16 AMP The entire church service gathering should be regulated Not everyone should be talking at the same time If everyone is talking then no one is listening The Holy Spirit should lead our thought process.
And we are given gifts so we can use it and encourage the church to grow in strength. Paul was teaching the Corinthians on how to behave in the gathering in the church. Chapter 14: verses 34-35 Women are not in the church to distract…. We are women of God Worshipers, preachers, teachers, prophets We are are to edify, teach and receive from the body as well as from the Holy Spirit With questions, answers can given at the end of the service The END of chapter fourteen: Prophecy - desire it and come in as a blessing to the church. Speak a new message from God to the people Edify the church…. Speaking tongues - continue to speak and seek in your devotional and to help in the church. There should always be an ORDER in the church - being gentle and listening to one and other
