And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. Is 58:1-12

We believe that the ultimate responsibility for the education of children belongs to parents (Deuteronomy 4:9, 6:1-25, and 4:1-4) and is an inalienable right given by God, which the State cannot create, destroy, or alter. Parents may allow another to teach some of the cognitive information that children need to know, but all education must be under the ultimate control and supervision of the parents (Proverbs 22:6).

We believe education in the home (done by the parent) to be the best form of education, but we recognize that many parents cannot educate at home for valid reasons and support the right of parents to send their children to private Christian schools.

Who has bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth? Gal 3

It’s time for “leaders” (Five Fold) to stop turning a blind eye and lead on the most significant and relevant issues of our generation! Issues such as the demonic indoctrination of our children in government schools, (bringing the children to the altars every Sunday/Wed praying for them, then turn around and give them over to these demonic institutions feeding them unGodliness), FYI: these are pagan institutions and these babies are not equipped to be the salt when they are still being trained up in the way they should go. Most adults can’t deal with this wickedness, laws are in favor, being strategically manipulated for this ungodliness , but somehow you think these institutions are going to repent without you making a stance and pulling these kids out… Other issues like abortion, antichrist governmental laws that’s filling the hearts and minds with lawlessness, the ultimate destruction of the family unit, FYI; if you can’t uphold the moral standards of family, teach the importance of family, making sure family is first, and not subjecting oneself to the pastor, how are you going to take care the church of God, 1 Tim 3…. Moreover, government endorsing all types of sexual immoralities and calling it pleasures.. and many more critical issues. Yet most “leaders” are silent because they have given over/sold the ministry to 501(c)(3) government regulations, invest and rape so much of the tithe payers money into themselves and tangible/temporal things, such as cars, houses and OMG the church buildings, etc… that are to no avail. And we wonder why the pulpits are silence and people are dying spiritually and it’s hard to be anchored in the faith. We wonder why compromise is at a high, just like in Moses days with Aaron, who was appointed to watch over the people while Moses was receiving the revelation of worship from God for the people He called by His name, yet the flock couldn’t tarry, made gods unto themselves “golden calf” and called it the worship of God/ministry, basically what we see today (Ex .32). The Bible say we shall not muzzle the Ox.. especially them that labor in the Word of God…The blood of so many are going to be on “leaders” hand…so many are going to be held accountable for the souls that they’re leading. So what are most of the so called leaders concerned with? Personal gain, money and fame or the souls of God sheep. The call of God is not justifiable by these tangle things, we’re only justified by FAITH!! It’s time out for being silence, it’s time to lead and prepare the children of God for what’s here and what’s to come, (2 Tim 3)…we need God to heal the land, but first we must humble ourselves, repent and pray.

Uncommon Study: Called to a Relationship

What evidence is there in your life of a covenant relationship with God?

Exodus 7:1–7; 19:20–25; 24:3–8; Luke 22:20; Hebrews 9:16–23; 1 Peter 1:2

When God calls His people, He first calls them into relationship through His covenant. God’s covenant with Abraham would make him the father of many nations, particularly Israel. God renewed His covenant with Isaac when Abraham died (Gen. 26:3–5) and made a covenant with Isaac’s younger son, Jacob (Gen. 35:9–12). Twelve of Jacob’s children, including Joseph, became the fathers of the twelve tribes of Israel.

In His covenant with the Hebrew slaves, God established the basis for a relationship with Him not only to Moses and the Israelites but to all generations thereafter. The heart of God is bigger than the world and His wisdom unsearchable. His covenant is for all time and all people. Ultimately, He sent His only Son as the fulfillment of the covenant.

Hebrews 1:1 states, “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways.” God uses many different avenues to make Himself known. God chose Moses to use at a pivotal event in the history of Israel. God renewed His covenant with His people through Moses. Moses had to be in covenant with God before he could lead the people according to God’s covenant.

We must understand that God’s holiness demands that we become consecrated to serve Him, and value the work that He is doing in our lives in order to serve Him and others!

We serve an unchangeable God, that speaks infallible knowledge! His Word holds just as much power today as when He spoke the world into existence.  Desiring to live upright, holy, and consecrated is pleasing to God and builds our relationship with Him.

Because of Christ’s perfect, irreversible sacrifice for us, we do not have to be under the bondages of sin and the law. Christ is the end of the law unto righteousness.  However, the law is not destroyed, but it’s fulfill in Christ and God commands believers to understand that His laws reveals His holy character and was used as a tool to point believers to the new covenant through Christ Jesus. The new covenant was made with us through the death of Christ on the cross. The shedding of His blood reconcile us to become children of God and engrafted into His Kingdom. Thank God we are justified by faith in Christ and faith alone!

Questions to consider:

  1. What are the characteristics of a person who “walks” with God?
  2. How do non-Christians respond to “holy”
  3. How do Christians respond?

Uncommon-Called to the Unexpected

Looking at real people like Moses, Joshua, and Rahab, we see and can understand the struggles we all have or will have to face walking by faith.  Through prayer, fasting and the study of the Word we can apply and gain hopeful perspectives on how God can be gloried through our daily decisions to obey.  The Word of God uncovers genuine understanding of spiritual growth and reveals how we fit into God’s master plan, (the mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory) even when it’s uncomfortable to you and all those around you.

  • He compels men to take action (faith without works is dead)
  • He operates in the unpredictable (we do not know where, when, why, or how)
  • He requires a relationship with Him (growth in understanding, knowledge, wisdom, etc.)
  • He commands obedience that produces fruit (love, patience, meekness, etc.)
  • He chooses leaders that honors Him (a heart after God)

We are all called to follow Jesus Christ. It’s our reasonable service. But what happens when He calls and it just doesn’t make sense? He’s says, “Do this, God there, Give up that.” What happens then? What would you do? What are you to do when God’s plans get in the way of your plans? Guest what? It happens all the time! From day to day, God moves and gives us opportunities to follow Him. However, It’s up to us to obey. Sometimes its easy, sometimes it NOT!
Called to the Unexpected: Exodus 3:1-12; 6:10-13

We must respond to God in obedience in order to do the work that He has called us to do.  We must never concentrate on our weakness, rather concentrate on God’s strength and His infallible abilities to be with us and lead us in the ways in which we should go.  In our weakness, God’s strength is proven.  We must pray that God would speak clearly to us.  His Word states, “My sheep know My Voice.”

God equips those He calls.  Our faith must not rest in what we can do or accomplish, in fact this is a hard lesson to learn.  “For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened, not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life, 2 Corinthians 5:4.”  We must therefore, trust the God who calls us into the Ministry of Jesus Christ.  The Scriptures says, “He will never leaves us nor forsake us.”  Acknowledging our weakness (humbling ourselves) before God, then, and only then, are we ready to be used by Him for His purpose for our life.  We all have had times in our lives, unfortunately, when we have trusted in our own abilities (inabilities at the end of the day), and the results were unfruitful.  God changes the abilities (strengths) and inabilities (weakness) and make us prepared unto every good work in Christ Jesus.

“But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me, 2 Corinthians 12:9.”

“God works by contraries so that a man feels himself to be lost in the very moment when he is on the point of being saved.” -Martin Luther

Debtor to Preach the Gospel

Lesson: Romans 1:1-17

Read: Romans 1:1-32

C.A.L.L. (Christ Abiding Life Lesson)

Some Christians cringe at the thought of being mocked at or excluded and seek to hide, thereby comprising their faith. They are ashamed of the gospel.  In this C.A.L.L we are going to see by reading some of Apostle Paul Epistles, why the gospel meant so much to him and why he was not ashamed of it.

In Romans 1:1-5 we the reader learns who Paul was in the very first statement of his epistle. He states, very confidently he was a servant. In this Paul confirms that the Lord Jesus paid the price to free us from slavery of Satan and Sin. We are therefore Jesus’ slaves. Slavery to Him, however, is really true freedom (John 8:32, 36). We are even free to refuse His right to claim us and to remain in bondage to Satan and Sin. Read closely, Paul did not desire to do this. When Christ met him on the road to Damascus, Paul became at that moment, His willing bond-slave. Key word: Willing.

Paul’s calling was to serve his Master as an apostle-one who was sent out to proclaim the Lord’s message, not his own. So determined was he to obey that calling that he separated himself for every other interest in life in order to preach the gospel.  He walked in what the Lord required, that we are not to be conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12).  There was nothing double-minded about Paul. Unlike some Sunday or Wednesday Christians (whose faith is mostly focus on locality of the church, then having faith to live as the church), he did not try to serve both Christ and the world or any form of religious error upheld by men.

Paul next defines what he meant by the gospel. It was the good news prophesied in the Old Testament which some so readily excludes, by disobeying what the Lord Jesus commanded, that we should preach of Him all that is written in the laws of Moses, psalms and the prophets. These writings testified about the coming of the Messiah and Savior who would be both the descendant of David and the Son of God and who would rise from the dead.

It was this One who had saved Paul and called him to be an apostle. Paul knew his message was not just for the Jews but for the Gentiles, the entirety of all nations.

In Romans 1:6-10 Paul wrote, he had not yet visited Rome. However, the gospel had somehow reach its borders, it was vibrant with faith. Paul thanked God for them and prayed for the free course to visit.

Romans 1:11-15, here we read Paul’s desire to give and receive a blessing. This is the ultimate true nature of Christian fellowship. Each believer has something to give for the benefit, edification, working, or encouragement of another. Yet, at the same time we are blessed and encouraged by others believers. Paul knew and understood that he need the encouragement of others believers as much as they needed his teaching. Not encouragement as in flattering, but encouragement of godly fruit being made manifested.

The book of Hebrews 10:25 also addresses the importance of Christian fellowship. We are encouraged to get together to strengthen each other. Inevitably, Christians today face many hardships. However, when believers join together in faith, they should help each other through those difficult times so they can continue to live out their faith in this world. If we sow to the spirit, we shall reap of the spirit.

Paul saw himself as a debtor. He owed it to all people, to share the knowledge of the gospel by which he had been so blessed. He knew salvation was to be offer to every nation and to all people, whether simple or educated. This was the heart of his calling, and should be ours. The Bibles states, that even in our very best state, we are all together vain.

Now lets look at Paul’s testimony in Romans 1:16-17. He was a highly educated and respected Pharisee, he had become an object of hatred and persecution by his own people. He had become a constant traveler, in danger of highway robbers, he had even suffered a shipwreck.  In city after city he was dragged before the courts, falsely accused, and even beaten and jailed. Sometimes he went hungry (II Cor. 11:23-27).

None of these dangers, tempted Paul to soften his message or to hide it altogether. No matter how much he was humiliated, he was never ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He boldly proclaimed it!  Some might ask Why? Paul knew the power of the gospel to change lives and to bring salvation to all people, Gentiles as well as Jews. He would make it known at any cost, obedience is better than sacrifice.

Paul quoted Habakkuk 2:4, saying that the Christian life is possible only by faith. It is faith in Jesus Christ that saves us and make us His children and it is by faith that we grow in our Christian lives.  Our Christian faith is a lively, daily working function. It was by faith that Paul faced the perils of his calling, knowing that whatever happened to him would in some way glorify Jesus Christ and build up His church (the bride).  Paul looked to the end of his faith, knowing that the sufferings of this life was for only a moment and was not worthy to be compared to the glory that is to come. He knew that suffering for Jesus was not just a mist, or some figurative notion, but literally, he had to present his body a living sacrifice. He knew this meant, his will, emotions, soul, heart, mind, strength, etc.. the entirety of who he was, had to die in order to live.

When we are tempted to hide our faith through fear of others, we should look to the example of Paul and other Biblical patriarchs that have went before us (Heb 11) who was not ashamed of the gospel or of Jesus Christ. Men and women of the Bible face constant humiliations. Nevertheless, we need not to forget that our Lord and Savior face the most terrible humiliations of all. He was publicly condemned, scorned, beating, and put to death criminally. This was the sacrifice of freeing us from Satan’s bondage and giving us eternal life.

Jesus declared, “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven” (Matt 10:32). You may fear rejection and many other things that hurts. Think about this: He warns us that those things will happen.  Also how much, then, must it hurt our Lord when those that confess that they have received of Him, fear to acknowledge Him before men? Will you follow the example of those, who only boasted with their lips, but their hearts are far from Him? Please don’t get denied before the Father, when that day come, because of the fears (all kinds) upon the earth!

Simple Questions of Reflection:

  1. What do you know about Paul’s life?
  2. Who does Romans 1:6-8 tell you about?
  3. What does ti mean to be ashamed of the gospel? Find three reason in verses 16-17 why Paul was not ashamed.
  4. Did Paul ever get to Rome? How? Where do you find the answer?
  5. What was Paul’s message in these passages?

Romans 1-17 (King James Version)

1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,

2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:

6 Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:

7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;

10 Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.

11 For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established;

12 That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

13 Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.

14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.

15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

The Feast of Purim (Intercession & Fasting) 13th, 14th  & 15th  day of Adar (March)

This Feast of Purim (signifies “lot” simply the making of a choice between one or another) found in the Book of Esther. We will study and examine closely the events of Chapter 9.  There are spiritual and moral lessons, which we as the Body of Christ can learn from this Feast.  As we study this Feast, we will discover the spiritual truths for the church in these last days.

This Feast signifies or shadows purification  preparation and sanctification out of which we are chosen to be a holy priesthood (1Peter 2:5-6) by the Blood of Jesus Christ.  During this time in the Book of Esther, an Agagite, a descendant of Amalek, of Esau, by the name of Haman, carried a Satanic hatred for the Jewish nation. He suggested that a decree be sent out to destroy the entire nation and he would finance the destruction. The death decree was sealed and people felt that their days were numbered.

When Mordecai, Esther uncle found out he went to Queen Esther to change the decree. He said to her that enlargement and deliverance could come from another place if she held her peace at this time. “And who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for a time as this?’ (Esther 4:1-14).

Esther along with the Jews, fasted 3 days and 3 nights without food or water. At the end of the days she would risk her life by appearing before the King Ashasuerus (Esther 4:15-17). As you continue to read the scriptures, the end results was that Haman hung from the very gallows which he had prepared for Mordecai to hang on (Esther 7:9-10) and face the inevitable death he decree for God’s people. 

This is the story behind the Feast of Purim.  Queen Esther may be pictured as a type of the church bringing deliverance to the people of God in the last days.  Haman and his 10 sons typify the Antichrist spirit and kingdom, which would arise against the church and seek to destroy the people of God.

As the church, like Esther, seeks the Lord in prayer and fasting and touches the Calvary experience and/or carry our Cross of 3 days and 3 nights, (fight the good fight of faith) God will work mightily in enlarging our territory (I Chronicles 4:10) and bring deliverance, breaking chains and bondages in every area of our lives (Is. 58:6-14).  In the New Testament God has chosen the church, the bride of Christ, to be the instrument of judgment on the kingdom of Satan (Gen 3:15, Rom 16:20).

Ultimately, the victory that the church brings to her people will result in a spiritual Feast of Purim (Rev 12:5-6; 12-17).  This is the time and yet to be fulfilled even the greater, where we are to be experiencing joy, gladness and feasting, while looking to the end of our faith expecting that great day like no other! Our later will be a greater an eternal rest from our enemies and all our sorrows will be turned to joy (Esther 9:17-19, 22).

This will be the spiritual fulfillment of the Feast of Purim in the church, the bride of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. She (church) will be the instrument that God uses to crust the head of the serpent in the last days (Gen 3:15; Rev 12; Eph 5:23-32).

A few Scriptures to stand on……

Ezra 9:8-9 (Revival within); Is 45:11 (Requesting the Lord’s will); Rom 8:24-28 (Allowing His will); Jude 20 (Building ourselves up);Eph 1 (obtaining and being enlightened)

 Why Study the Feasts?

Many come against the Feasts of the Lord…Why?  Not understanding Prophecy and that the law was the shadow of good things to come…(Hebrews 10:1) therefore, the fulfillment of the Mosaic economy become meaningless unless all is seen through the Cross in relation to Christ and the Church in which all is fulfilled ( Luke 24:44; Rev 19:10; 22:16).  In Hosea 8:12 “I wrote for him ten thousand things of My law, but they are counted as a strange thing (as something which does not concern him).”

  1. The Feasts should be studied because they are a part of the Scriptures given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, which are profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness (II Tim 3:13-17).
  2. The Feasts should be studied because they are “a shadow of things to come” (Colossians 2:16-17; Hebrews 10:1-2). They point to Christ who is the substance.
  3. The Feasts should be studied because they were prophetic types and en-samples foreshadowing in Israel’s history future events. They shadowed forth that which Christ would fulfill in Himself and in the Church, which is His Body (1Cor 10:6, 11; Matt 5:17-18; 11:13). They were written for our admonition. Part have found fulfillment and part are yet to be fulfilled.
  4. The Feasts should be studied because the believer will find that there are things written therein for his learning. (Rom 15:4).
  5. The Feasts should be studied because Christ came to fulfill all that was written of Him in “ the Law, the Psalms and the Prophets,” (Luke 24:26-27; 44:45; John 5:46-46; Acts 3:22-23).
  6. The Feasts should be studied because this part of the Law was also a “schoolmaster to bring us to Christ” (Gal 3:24).
  7. The Feasts should be studied because Jesus said; “In the volume of the Book it is written of Me” (Heb 10:7; Psalm 40:6-8; 29:9). All the intricate details point to some aspect of the person, work and glory of the Christ.
  8. The Feasts should be studied because there was knowledge and truth  in the eternal form of the Law. We study the external form to discover the internal knowledge and truth that was hidden therein (Rom 2:20; Heb 1:1-2).
  9. The Feasts should be studied because they set forth “patterns” of Heavenly things on earth (Heb 8:5; 9:9, 23-24).
  10. The Feasts should be studied because they set forth the total Ministry of Christ relative to the plan of redemption. They set forth in their time element the present Dispensation (time) from the first coming of Christ (Passover), through the Church Age (Pentecost to the second coming of Christ (Tabernacles).
  11. The Feasts should be studied because the truths therein are part of “present truth” which the Holy Spirit is quickening to the Church in these “last days” (II Pet 1:12; Matt 4:4).
  12. The Feast should be studied because there has never been a generation who have experienced all three Feasts but the end-time generation will experience such, even as did that generation under King Solomon’s glorious reign (II Chron 8:13). This generation will hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches (Rev 2:7).

The things involved in the Feats of the Lord pertained to the material, the natural and the temporal. It is a principle of God’s dealings with His people that is “Fist the natural, afterwards that which is spiritual” (I Cor 15:46-47). It is first the animal-lamb, then the Divine-human Lamb of God; first the natural loaves and leaven then the spiritual loaves and leaven; first the earthly Sanctuary, then the heavenly Sanctuary.
