The miracle child

It was a bad time for Israel. The leadership was feeble and they faced strong enemies. Their knowledge of God supported them knowing that the God they served was The Lord of hosts, of all the hosts both of heaven and earth.
The mother of Samuel approached God through prayer for a child. Hannah was her name. She was childless and her affliction was aggravated by her rival’s uncomfortable insolence. However she did have a kind husband. His kindness toward her brought her some relief.

Pray The Prayer of Jabez

Background: The name Jabez in Hebrew means “He that causes pain”. In the Jewish culture, it is a common practice to use symbolic names for the children. Jabez’s mother experienced great pain in giving birth to Jabez, much more pain than the usual childbirth, so this is why his mother named him Jabez.

Life is not stopping by death

When we were controlled by our old nature, sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds, resulting in death. (Romans 7:5)

EVIDENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AT WORK

The ministry of the Holy Spirit As the New Testament is read, it is easy to see the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The early church had confidence in the Holy Spirit and exhibited confidence in its leadership. This confidence grew out of the church’s daily experience, direction and blessing from God by means of the Holy Spirit.

The Spirit and the Local Church

Jesus Christ said, "I will build My church" Obedience  as a building block The Church is being built on Church members dedicated to obedience. Jesus set out certain expecations for Church membership to adhere to.  One sentence enbraces these expectations: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength. And love your neighbor as yourself".

The Gift of The Spirit

What are the gifts of the Spirit ? Every Christian has the guidance of the Spirit of God. Jesus said He was sending the Holy Spirit to help us. (John 14:16) The word that He used, Paraclete, has a meaning of a friend, Helper, Advocate, the One called alongside. This word implies that the Holy Spirit walks beside you. The Holy Spirit has His arm around you to keep you for falling. The Holy Spirit gives you guidance and intercedes for you to the Father in your behalf.
