Morning Service – Why did God kill so many People?
Why Did God Kill So Many People? 1. God is Sovereign 2. Man is Sinful 3. God can/does purge/purify the earth of its sin/sinners 4. God chose to give Abraham “the land” Genesis 11:31 3. Purging the land Deut. 13:1-5 If a prophet…(sign) says, “Let us follow other gods” (gods you have not known) “and let us worship them,” you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The LORD your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul. It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. That prophet or dreamer must be put to death for inciting rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery. That prophet or dreamer tried to turn you from the way the LORD your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you. Deut. 19:12-13 ..the killer shall be sent for by the town elders, be brought back from the city, and be handed over to the avenger of blood to die. Show no pity. You must purge from Israel the guilt of shedding innocent blood, so that it may go well with you. ** Deut. 20:16-18 (page 195) 2 Corinthians 7:1 Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God. Christ made the difference! 2. We are sinners & NEED a Savior 1. God is Sovereign 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.” Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” James 4:8-10 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (1 Peter 5:6)... due time.

    Morning Service – The Influence of Mothers
    Rebekah Jacob and Esau's mother Jochebed Moses' mother Naomi Mother-in-law of Ruth Bathsheba Solomon' mother Hannah Samuel's Elizabeth John the Baptist Mary Jesus's mother Herodias Two mothers mentioned in 2 Timothy1:1-6 Psalm 22:9 Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you, even at my mother's breast. Proverbs 22:6 (KJV) Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 (NIV) Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Mothers can positively influence the next generation Acts 16:1-5 1 Corinthians 7:12-16 To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. But if the unbeliever leaves, let it be so. The brother or the sister is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. How do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife? 2 Timothy 3:14-17 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. Don't Outsource your children's spiritual formation! Deuteronomy 6:6-7 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Show them what the Christian life is all about by how YOU live. Let your children see Jesus in you. Social Media Cyber-bullying, (apps), sexting, teen suicide drugs & alcohol / “parties”

    Morning Service – Progressive Sanctification 2
    SANCTIFICATION Set apart for God's glory 1. Past: Chosen by God 2. Progressive 3. Permanent in Heaven (1:3a) everything we need for this “holy life” Why do we go to all this "effort"? 8 Building Blocks for a Sanctified Life “add to..” 1. Faith 1Peter 1:23-2:3 2. Goodness Virtue / moral excellence & energy Hebrews 12:1a 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. 3. Knowledge 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Hebrews 5:11-6:3 (page 1207) 2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 4. Self-control Holding oneself in 1 Thessalonians 1:5 .. our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. 5. Perseverance Staying under Hebrews 12:1b-3 .. 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. fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Genesis 6:5 The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. Genesis 6:9b Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. 6. Godliness “wholeheartedly” 2 Chronicles 25:1-2 Amaziah was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-nine years… He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, but not wholeheartedly. 7. Mutual affection “brotherly love” 8. Love (Agapa) Loving as God loves
