Please forgive me, I’m a bit frustrated. As I sat down and fired up this machine to write I find that the domain (biblestudenthub.com) is down. It was up last Sunday, not sure when it went down. Last week was busy, totally out of the box. Turns out that changing the contact information on Domain.com set off a verification process. Outlook360.com sent that email to the junk mail folder. I use Thunderbird for email client and do not see that folder only inbox. Well, I had to work/do business on Sunday but we are back up now. If you use the Bible Study Start Page or our Resource page I apologize if they were down when you needed them. Chalk it up to naivety.
Wile I’m begging your forgiveness, I apologize for not bringing you the new Bible Study instead of this ranting and for the rambling on and personal updates. I have abused this forum as it is my only forum. I thank you for your indulgence if you are following this blog for site updates or Bible Study related content. It is our prime purpose to promote Bible Study. Our hope is that you grow in your relationship with God. I am an Ambassador for my Lord Jesus Christ. To God be the glory and may the name of Jesus Christ be lifted up and held high!
Pray with me that all that I do and say will bring Him Glory, for in the end, all that maters is the Glory of God!
Attended live Sunday School and Service at New Hope Baptist Church. Yet another continuation of what Spirit has been doing since the first of the year, a true blessing! Once again I’ll say, You just had to be there. I hope you were truly blessed somewhere today but if not or if you have room for some more the service is available on F***B**k, search for New Hope Baptist Gainesboro TN. I will try to hit some highlights, in review, in a moment.
First let me say if you did not listen to BBN‘s Conference Pulpit this past week you missed out. You can listen until they are replaced with this weeks. Tim St. Clair, Abundantly Above All Revival Ministries, was the speaker.
Second let me send a shout out to My Pastors! Fred Davis, Ron Hardman, Allen Jackson and Randy Heady. I am where I am by the will of God for this time and place as was the case when I sat under you. I was as truly blessed to be apart of each and every Local Church along the way. I still follow your work and love and respect your Ministries. Know that I am praying for you and your work.
Thank you Bakers Grove for prayers and reaching out to me in love and concern last week.
I’m sorry I can’t do justice to the Sunday School lesson! The subject has been “The New World Order” No, not the great reset. In the end God will set things straight and there will be a new world order, ordered by God! The gist of it is that the some things, are now, out of place but are coming into place and will be in place in God’s new world order. One is the Church, this world is not our home, we are sojourners here. Another is the prince of this world will be dethroned, cast into the lake of fire that was prepared for him and his angles. Note: if you are lost, don’t have the Spirit of Christ Jesus, you are condemned to spend eternity in a place not prepared for you. It is not God’s will that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (cf: 2 Peter 3:9)
Pastor Randy Heady’s message today was on peace. you will remember last week was fear and confusion the week before. Fear robs us of our peace and confusion breads fear. God is not the author of confusion, but of peace.
Peace comes from assurance, John wrote his first epistle to give assurance to the new church that was getting confused because of some false teaching making the circuit in that day. The lesson was largely from 1 John. Pastor gave us a surprise exam, a test, if you will. There were five sections and a score of 100% is required to pass. You see john gave five signs of salvation that if present give us assurance. “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God”. (5:13)
