GOD’S PROVISION

GOD’S PROVISION

1 Timothy 6:17 “Command those who are in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.”

The Scene: A large red barn with a black roof–sign of prosperity and provision

2 Corinthians 9:6, 8,10-11 “Remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound to every good work. Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.”

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

Psalm 144:13-15 “Our barns will be filled with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields; our oxen will draw heavy loads. There will be no breaching of walls, no going into captivity, no cry of distress in our streets. Blessed are the people of whom this is true; blessed are the people whose God is the Lord.”

MY PEOPLE

MY PEOPLE

Revelation 21:3 ” And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.’ “

The Scene: A handwritten scroll: God’s people have been entrusted to Jesus Christ our Lord; it will go badly for anyone that wrongs one of His own, the Holy Spirit quickened to this writer.

1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

Titus 2:13-14 “While we wait for the blessed hope–the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.”

Matthew 24:30-31 “At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”

7-60 CHOSEN OF GOD

7-60 CHOSEN OF GOD

SPIRITUAL WEAPONS

SPIRITUAL WEAPONS

2 Corinthians 10:4 “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.”

The Scene: A rack of powerful rifles, pistols and other weapons–each weapon representing a prayer for help by those who are born-again Christians, against attacks in the spiritual realm from our enemy, Satan.

Psalm 34:17 “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.” *

*See Matthew 12:29 and Luke11:21-22

We have at our disposal an assortment of weapons (prayers) to fight the enemy–such as prayers to come against temptations and illnesses: physical, mental, or spiritual.

Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

We can include in our prayers Scriptures from the Holy Bible, just like Jesus did when tempted by Satan or his strongmen–the Word of God will not fail us. God’s Word is true and everlasting.

Psalm 119:89 “Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.”

When we don’t know how to pray, the Holy Spirit will be there for us and lead us, when we ask Him for help. He will give us the right spiritual weapons (powerful prayers) to say.

8-110 PRAYER

PERFECTION OF GOD

PERFECTION OF GOD

READ: 1 Corinthians 15:12-58 The story of the resurrection life and victory over death.

The Scene: Three rings overlapping each other representing the Holy Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). Each circle symbolizes completeness and perfection. The axis about which the rings are set, representing the cross anchored in the Rock, Jesus, who sacrificed His life for us; and His resurrection on the third day after His crucifixion and proven death.

The three rings show Jesus in His rightful place as a part of the Holy Trinity and His oneness with Father God and the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 15:55-57 “Where, O death, is your victory? Where , O death is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

7-54 RESURRECTION LIFE

THIS IS NOT MY HOME

THIS IS NOT MY HOME

1 Peter 2:11 ” Dear friends, I urge you as aliens and strangers in this world, to abstain from sinful desires.”

The Scene: A passport and visa depiction of the Christian’s origin, as being from heaven, not earth.

Psalm 119:19 “I am a stranger on earth; do not hide your commands from me.”

Our life on earth is only temporary and brief, when compared to eternity in heaven. Our lifetime on earth is like a shooting star or comet zipping across the sky. Seen only for a brief moment in time; heaven is timeless. Our time with God Almighty in heaven will be forever.

2 Corinthians 4:18 “So we fix our eyes on not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is only temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

Philippians 3:18-20 “For, as I have often told you before and now say again with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

7-57 CITIZEN OF HEAVEN

SET MY FACE LIKE FLINT

SET MY FACE LIKE FLINT

Isaiah 50:7 ” Because the Sovereign Lord helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame.”

The Scene: Representation of the “born-again” Christian’s determination, with help of the Holy Spirit, to persevere through whatever Satan throws in front of us to make us stumble in our Christian walk.

Jesus set His face like flint when He decided it was time to go to Jerusalem and ultimately go to the cross and die for the sins of the whole world.

Luke 9:51 “As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.”

For us to follow in Jesus Christ’s footsteps, we must be disciplined and not be moved in our convictions, living for God and not for selfish, earthly rewards.

Deuteronomy 6:4-6 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all you strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.”

LEVELS OF MATURITY

LEVELS OF MATURITY

Philippians 3:15-16 (AMP) “So let those (of us) who are spiritually mature and full- grown have this mind and hold these convictions, and if in any respect you have a different attitude of mind, God will make that clear to you also. Only let us hold true to what we have already attained and walk and order our lives by that. “

The Scene: Glasses of water, partially filled. Each glass represents levels of (spiritual) Christian maturity–the water in each glass symbolizes the living water of the Word of God. Those who are most mature must forgive and give grace to those who are less spiritually mature than themselves. We must learn to recognize a person’s level of maturity and act accordingly toward that person–that is the Pauline relationship with others in the Church. And we will be rewarded for those acts of love to others in the Church, to those who may not treat us kindly or lovingly.

1 Corinthians 13:11 “When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.”

1 Corinthians 14:20 “Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to be evil infants, but in your thinking be adults.”

Ephesians 4:11-13 “It was he who gave some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 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 fulness of Christ.”

7-53 CHRISTIAN MATURITY

THE LORD GOES BEFORE

THE LORD GOES BEFORE

Proverbs 4:18 “The path of righteousness is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”

The Scene: A gravel path with rose bushes on both sides of the path. Looking ahead, dispersed along the gravel path, were rose petals–symbolic of the Lord going before: making the way better for His chosen ones, whose names are written in His Book of Life.

Isaiah 26:7-8 “The path of the righteous is level; O upright One, you make the way of the righteous smooth. Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desires of our hearts. “

We are to “fear not”, the Holy Spirit quickened and continued; ‘The Lord goes before you. I am with you always.’

Our Advocate Jesus goes before us all the way to the throne of Father God in our defense.

STRENGTH IN HIS WORD

STRENGTH IN HIS WORD

Psalm 119:27-28 “Let me understand the teaching of your precepts; then I will mediate on your wonders. My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word.”

The Scene: A spiritual weight room, where all the weights are Holy Bibles–God’s Word, to make us strong in thought, word, and deed.

Reading the Holy Scriptures every day strengthens us spiritually and makes us stronger to resist the evil ways of our own flesh, that of others and the temptations from the enemy of our souls.

2 Samuel 22:33 “It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.”

Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

God’s Word gives us strength to go through this world and gives us the Godly wisdom we need in every situation, when we ask for the help of the Holy Spirit. May we always listen and obey that still, small voice telling us the right answers. Ask for the Holy Sprit’s help!

GIVING BACK

GIVING BACK

Galatians 6:7-8 “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”

The Scene: The boy had been racing down the sidewalk on his bicycle and did not see the missing section of the sidewalk–the front tire of his bike hit the dirt and gravel in the area of the missing concrete section. The front wheel of the bike dug into the ground and turned the handlebars sideways. Crashing into the edge of the concrete, sprawled on the ground in pain, the boy began to cry. One of the people the boy had chased off the sidewalk saw the crash and came to the aid of the child. That person whose house was nearby went and got a first aid kit, came back to the injured boy, and patched up his scrapes.

Galatians 6:9-10 “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”

Now the rest of the story: a hospital room occupied by an old man. The doctor speaks to the patient saying, “I was that boy that you helped, after I ran you off the sidewalk many years ago. Now I have the opportunity to help you recover.” The good Samaritan reaped goodness for having helped someone he did not know.
