Summary: In learning to love our neighbor, do we allow a difference to cause us to then not love our neighbor? Does that person love the Lord with all that they know how to do? Let us relate simply with the Love of the Lord for one another. Show Notes: • There are “proofs” that the rapture will take place in the scripture, does it really matter as to when? • Relationships are more important than doctrines. • The Centurion knew more principles than many even today. References: 1 Corinthians 9:19-23 NIV 19. Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. 22. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. 23. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings. Matthew 8:5-13 The story of the Centurion Romans 14:5-12 NASB 5. One person values one day over another, another values every day the same. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind. 6. The one who observes the day, observes it for the Lord, and the one who eats, does so with regard to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and the one who does not eat, it is for the Lord that he does not eat, and he gives thanks to God. 7. For not one of us lives for himself, and not one dies for himself; 8. for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. 9. For to this end Christ died and lived again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living 10. But as for you, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or you as well, why do you regard your brother or sister with contempt? For we will all appear before the judgment seat of God. 11. For it is written: “AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, TO ME EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, AND EVERY TONGUE WILL GIVE PRAISE TO GOD.” 12. So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God. 1 Samuel 16:7 NKJV But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” Quotes: • To wrangle about words, is useless • Arguing doctrine always causes confusion and division • He was a Centurion by the will of God • It is the guy that is walking in all the revelation that he has Take Away: The second great commandment is to Love your neighbor as yourself, Is it loving another when we argue and create deeper divisions because of the differences that we believe from another? Are we able to open our heart to even listen to their perspective?
Summary: The cross of Christ is not a dreary, devastation, miserable thing. It comes with grace and a joy that sets us free from this Adamic nature that separated us from God and returns a fellowship with Him. Show Notes: • No one can just say, I am going to have a cross experience today • It is all about the Word, and it is by that Word that one will experience the cross. • There are some who will refuse to experience the cross. References: John 1:1, 14 NKJV 1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 1 John 3:2 NASB Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. Ephesians 5:26 NASB 1977 that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, Philippians 3:18 ESV For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. Hebrews 12:1, 2 NIV 1. Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2. fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Psalms 51:4 DRB To thee only have I sinned, and have done evil before thee: that thou mayst be justified in thy words and mayst overcome when thou art judged. Mark 9:24 BLB Immediately the father of the child, having cried out, was saying, "I believe; help my unbelief!" Quotes: • God's taking what we have and going deeper with it • the only way of effective change is by seeing Him • this has to be a walk of grace and mercy from the Lord Take Away: The purpose of the cross is to remove all that will hinder one from running the race, as mentioned in Hebrews, He wants to have a close relationship with each of us and removing the deeds of the flesh is a method this happens.
Summary: Why do we want to teach our children to pray for their teachers? Are the choices of our children important? What does it mean that you teach a child when they are young and they will not depart from it? Show Notes: • How do we help children conquer their fears? • A child can be an example to others • The brain cannot relate to what “do” and “do not” means References: 1 Timothy 2:1, 2 KJV 1. I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2. For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. Deuteronomy 6:7 NLT You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. Proverbs 22:6 ESV Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Ezra 3:11-13 AB in PE 11. And they knelt in thanksgiving and with hymns to LORD JEHOVAH, “Because he is good and his grace over Israel is for eternity!”, and all the people shouted with great jubilation with hymns of praise to LORD JEHOVAH, because of the completion of the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 12. And many of the Priests and the Levites, Chiefs of the elder fathers, because they saw this house in its first glory when this house was finished, they wept with a loud voice, and there were many who were lifting up their voice with the horns and with joy. 13. And there were no people who heard the sound of the horns, because of the sound of the great weeping of the people, because the people were sounding with the horns with a loud voice, and the sound of the weeping was heard for a long distance. Quotes: • It is simple living everyday life with your children • Teach them: This is the way to do it. • Learn who they are • We need to teach them humor Take Away: A child begins to learn as a baby and continue to learn, we are to “bring them up in the way they should go”, teach them to know how to be an overcomer.
Summary: What is and how do we speak God’s word? How do we read the bible? Is it just a story book? We need an experiential relationship with the Father, and it is the job of the Holy Spirit to reveal what we are to speak. Show Notes: • With the heart a person believes • Only when God reveals His word can we speak it with authority • It cannot be just words we read on a page, it must be real and alive. References: Matthew 6:10 KJV Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 1 Kings 17 and 18 The story of Elijah and no rain for 3-1/2 years. Romans 10:6-10 Who will go up? John 5:19 BSB So Jesus replied, “Truly, truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing by Himself, unless He sees the Father doing it. For whatever the Father does, the Son also does. Luke 12:12 NLT for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what needs to be said.” Ephesians 6:14 NASB 1977 Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, 1 Peter 4:11 NKJV If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. John 1:1, 14 NIV 1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. Mark 12:30, 31 CSB 30. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. 31. The second is, Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other command greater than these.” Luke 24:13-35 The two on the road to Emmaus Romans 10:14 NLT But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? Quotes: • I didn’t meet the Lord as in pie in the sky, I met the Lord through others • Christ was and became the word of God. • Okay Lord, show me yourself Take Away: It is the Holy Spirit that reveals to us what is in the Word or Scriptures and He will let us know when to speak what the Father is speaking to His people.

Summary: Many voices gather to speak and create the new year ahead The Feast of Trumpets begins a new year, a calling of people to gather and announcing the arrival of the King. Those who have been prepared, speak and frame the next year. Show Notes: • Numbers 10 gives us 7 functions for “blowing the trumpets” • 1 Corinthians 14:7, 8 talk about a distinct sound in various instruments.

Summary: How much do our words create or destroy our ability to overcome? Jesus overcame by the word He spoke Being an overcomer has nothing to do with our emotions, or feelings. Is there an expression of what one has overcome? Show Notes: • In voicing the word of God, it creates the ability to overcome. • When we overcome something, we do not have to do it again. • God does not have anything negative to say about us, why should we? References: Genesis 32:22-32 Jacob wrestles with God John 16:33 NIV “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” 1 John 5:4 KJV For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Quotes: • The blood of Christ makes us capable of doing these things. • We overcome because we subject ourselves to the Lord • The minute you give voice to something, you’re creating it. • We establish ourselves as overcomers Take Away: Our words never die, they create who we are and many of our circumstances, Jesus spoke only what He heard the Father speak and He overcame sin and death for our sakes.
Summary: How many ways do we have to be overcomers? We should not “cross out” the good we create How do we “Love not our lives unto death”? Show Notes: • We have a choice in all things to live in faith or as a victim • Getting our focus on the Lord knowing that He is handling everything. • What does overcome really mean? References: Revelation 12:11 KJV And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Romans 10:17 NASB 1995 So faith comes from hearting, and hearing by the word of Christ James 3:10, 11 ISV 10. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. It should not be like this, my brothers! 11. A spring cannot pour both fresh and brackish water from the same opening, can it? 1 Thessalonians 5:16, 18 NIV 16. Rejoice always, 18. Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God ’s will for you in Christ Jesus. John 14:12 ESV “ Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.” Quotes: • We are going to accept one of two things; faith or futility. • If you do not have something to overcome, you will not become an overcomer. • So, the choice you have is either being overcomer or a victim • Overcome, what do we do now? Take Away: There are some simple steps that we all can take to be overcomers; speak the word positively/creatively, and give of what we value like our time in showing another that we care.
Summary: What is the Joy of the Lord? Does discipline bring joy? Is the Joy of the Lord an all or nothing type of thing? Show Notes: • There are various experiences and expressions of joy • Joy is tied into Love • In His presence is fullness of joy References: Nehemiah 8:10 KJV Then He said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for the joy of the Lord is your strength Psalms 16:11 NASB You will make known to me the way of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever. Psalms 51:8 Amp Make me hear joy and gladness and be satisfied; Let the bones which You have broken rejoice. Ephesians 4:13, 14 NIV 13. until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. 14. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.

Romans 9:28 KJV For He will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. Quotes: • The Lord is putting us through the things to create us into sons • I want to coin the term: Mature Joy • As we mature the process gets shorter Take Away: As an immature child, discipline is not joyful at all. As we mature in the Lord the process is shorter as we do not run from it so much and realize the Joy set before us.
