Again, this may sound like a worn out phrase but history teaches us what to say a€?noa€? to and what to say a€?yesa€? to in our healing work.
The Pastor of the Christian Science Church is Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy and The King James Bible.
Whata€™s important to you human opinion coming from personality or Goda€™s Word that heals?
Each week serious Christian Scientist enjoy getting to know their books by marking their Lesson Sermon for the week. Again you dona€™t have to recharge a hard bound book, use electricity or deal with the bugs of new technology. A Practitioner is a Class taught Christian Scientist who is in the public practice of healing through prayer. These people should not be expected, more than others, to give all their time to Christian Science work, receiving no wages in return, but left to be fed, clothed, and sheltered by charity. Again, this may sound like a worn out phrase but history teaches us what to say a€?noa€? to and what to say a€?yesa€? to in our healing work.A  History in Christian Science explains why certain things are done in the Christian Science church service and why healing is a big part of Christian Science and why healing is as possible today as it was in ancient times. One of the unique things about Christian Science is the Lesson Sermon.A  The Lesson Sermon can be found in the Christian Science Quarterly and is by divine design meant to heal.
If some self-proclaimed prophet suddenly arose and began drawing crowds with stirring messages, healing the sick, raising the dead, bringing fire from heaven, and revealing knowledge of your personal secrets - would you believe in him or her?
Answer: A They will remain until God's people are all unified, mature Christians--which, of course, will be at the end of time.
Answer: A God warns us of false Christs and false prophets who will be so extremely convincing that they will deceive all except the very elect of God.
Answer: A In Study Guide 23, we discovered that Jesus gives a six-point description of His end-time church. Answer: A Since a prophet is sometimes called a seer (someone who can see into the future), the eyes would best represent the gift of prophecy. Because God normally sends prophets to His church only when it is keeping His commandments. The way to make the gift of prophecy meaningful is to study it for yourself and follow it prayerfully so Jesus can guide and preserve you and prepare you for His coming. Eddy who have taken it upon themselves to assume in their biographies that they know what Mrs. Eddy states that a€?Christian Science and Christian Scientist will, must have a history.a€? (Misc.
The Bound Volumes of the Christian Science Sentinel and Journal are gems to our healing work today.
Eddy had preachers like all churches but then personality took over and preachers started preaching from the standpoint of their personality and worship so Mrs. Reading straight from the books allows for no mistakes or human personality and maintains the purity of the Christ Science. This means that to mark your book you need markers for the particular size of books you have, chalk and chalk holder plus an eraser. If you were in pain would you like to wait till the practitioner was through with his day job before you get relief from pain. Eddya€™s answer about paying a practitioner from her writing in Rudimental Divine Science page 23. Neither can they serve two masters, giving only a portion of their time to God, and still be Christian Scientists. Teachers hold class once a year where they explain more about how to heal as Christ Jesus did.
Standards in Christian Science are to live a loving Christian life proving Goda€™s great love for man. Teachers hold class once a year where they explain more about how to heal as Christ Jesus did.A  The teacher that God has chosen for you is like a marriage.
The perfecting of God's end-time church is not possible if any of these five gifts is missing.
Although a prophet's message may sometimes edify the public, the primary purpose of prophecy is to serve the church. Here are the brief details:a€?a€?God Calls a Young Womana€?God's end-time church began to form in the early 1840s and desperately needed guidance. However, you can know that she (1) meets the tests of a prophet, (2) did the work of a prophet, and that (3) God's true end-time church must have a prophet. Further, He clearly states that spiritual prosperity hinges upon believing His prophets (2 Chronicles 20:20). When a church does not have a prophet to counsel, guide, and lead it back to Jesus and the Bible, the people will flounder in a disoriented manner (Psalms 74:9) and eventually perish. In 1 Corinthians 12:28 it is listed as second in importance of all the gifts, while the gift of tongues is listed last.
Here are the brief details:God Calls a Young WomanGod's end-time church began to form in the early 1840s and desperately needed guidance.
And just as water shouldna€™t infiltrate the hull of a ship, so the world shouldna€™t infiltrate His church.
As an example, I have a a€?pocket PCa€? with multiple versions of the Bible, along with Bible dictionaries and inspired commentarya€”I can even listen to the Bible and watch Bible videos with it. Despite the prolif-eration of Bible resources, people today are more biblically illiterate than ever.
The eartha€™s environment radically changed, and subsequently, lifestyles began degenerating. Even if you stood outside on the equator in the middle of a desert underneath a clear blue sky at noon, it would be utterly dark compared to heaven. I like caving, so once while in Virginia, I went to explore a place that advertised itself as the a€?Endless Caverns.a€? Of course, the cave isna€™t endless, but it does go hundreds of feet below ground. How ironic that in the exact spot where Voltaire made that bold prediction sits a Bible warehousea€”churning out Bibles! You might see black and maybe red ink on white paper, or even just pixels on a computer screen, but it is much more than that. Ita€™s real, and ita€™s unlikely that anyone could ever open ita€”with sincere desirea€”and never get something out of it. Though written over a period of 1,600 years by about 40 different authorsa€”on three different continents, speaking four different languagesa€”ita€™s completely harmonious.
Sin entered the world because man doubted Goda€™s words; we shouldna€™t make the same mistake today by doubting the accuracy of the Bible, especially with so much proof on its side.
I wonder why they deprive themselves of the strength and the pleasure.a€? Thata€™s what happens when you read about God supernaturally intervening in the affairs of men to accomplish His redemptive purposes. These peoplea€™s lives were a total mess, but when they started reading the Bible, they turned around.
Maybe you are studying your Bible, but youa€™re just picking up a few crumbs that fall from the childrena€™s table. Just take an hour, once a week, to get together with others of like faith and read the Word of God together. But God has given us a never-failing gyrocompass in His Word, and if we read ita€”with a desire to follow it and know the God who inspired ita€”we will have a sure guide, one that will never let us go astray, and one more powerful and effec-tive that all the nuclear submarines in the world. The voice then said, a€?Tomorrow you will be both glad and sad.a€? So the confused man took a handful of pebbles and stuffed them in his pocket. It was the Bible that turned me into a Christian, which is a miracle considering that I was from a Jewish family full of cynicism about Christianity. This will never happen unless you make the decision to reserve regular time with the Lord in study and prayer.
Comparatively uneducated, not a great reader, and faced with a King James Bible, I was nevertheless able to understand what I read. Do not despair of help to understand something of the will and the mind of God as if they are fast locked up from you. It is important to ask, a€?Lord, help me apply the things I have read in your Word to my life.a€? Approaching God with a cynical curiosity will most likely lead to confusion and frustration. Jesus said, a€?I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them nowa€? (John 16:12).
Sometimes we over-spiritualize basic things in the Bible, never letting the words just plainly speak for themselves. Some people a€?studya€? by jumping from one verse to another, leading them to some flawed doctrinal conclusions. I remember, for example, reading Jesus teaching about honoring your father and mother, but then He mentions a€?Corbin.a€? I thought, a€?Who or what is Corbin?a€? Well, I had to do a little background study to find out that in their culture, children could dedicate their wealth to the temple instead of using it to support their parents in their old age.
There are little nuances of meaning that cana€™t always be exactly translated from one language to another.
They can help you immensely in getting the gist of each passage and help you grasp the meaning in ways that will astound and amaze you. For instance, I often get asked about a passage in 1 Corinthians 11 regarding women not cutting their hair and praying with their heads covered. Likewise, running to and fro through the Bible, comparing Scripture with Scripture, will work to help you learn for yourself what the truth really is. Proponents of these odd teachings keep going back, again and again, to these few verses until theya€™ve managed to build an enormous following even though they neglect the weight of evidence from hundreds of other verses that, if carefully studied, would contradict the very teaching that they are so passionately promoting.
Of course, God can speak to you alone through His Word, but almost without exception people who dona€™t fellowship with other believers and dona€™t bounce their interpretations off stable Christians can come up with some very bizarre ideas. Ita€™s so important now to be personally grounded in the Word because false teachings are only going to multiply as the clock of eartha€™s history winds rapidly down. Peter tells us that a€?[as] newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow therebya€? (1 Peter 2:2). Remember, we can live holy lives when we have His Word written in our hearts (Psalms 119:11).
He wants them to be able to stand before anyone, anywhere, and, as Peter said, a€?be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and feara€? (1 Peter 3:15). These early workers proved in their lives what they had learned in how to heal with the comforter. History in Christian Science is important because it tells us where we have been and where wea€™re going in our healing work.
And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days, Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. We are a church of a€?Laya€? people meaning that we are a€?alla€? students of Christian Science. Eddy wrote the by-law that the only preachers in a Christian Science church would be The King James Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. In staying close to your books you will learn the different books of the Bible as you mark and the different chapters in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Eddy states, a€?No copies from my books are allowed to be written, and read from manuscripts, either in private or in public assemblies, except by their author.a€? (Misc. Manual that states the Journal and Sentinel are to be part of the service although they are considered organs of the church.
But if you are a member of another church and want to advance in your healing work in Christian Science then you will want to dissolve your membership with that church and become a member of a Christian Science church. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.a€? There is constructive and destructive criticism.
Christians Scientist who want to remain close to their books mark their books each week in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and the King James Bible. Your ultimate destiny just might be tied directly to your ability to distinguish between true and false prophets.
So, in harmony with His promise of Amos 3:7, God then called a young woman named Ellen Harmon to be His prophetess. It is so perceptive and relevant that it was once plagiarized by the minister of education of a certain nation, who published it under his own name. She said on the subject of intelligence that a person's IQ could be increased--long before experts agreed.
And they meet the Bible standard for visions as outlined in the answer to question seven of this Study Guide.
These verses verify that when God's people disregard His commandments, He sends no prophet.
The trip, dubbed a€?Operation Sunshine,a€? was made possible by a new technological marvel, the USS Nautilus, the worlda€™s first nuclear-powered submarine. On our long, often-dark journey through these troubling waters, the Bible is as crucial to us as the gyrocompass was to the USS Nautilus. Moreover, the internet offers a broad spectrum of free Bible software and even free electronic Bibles. God spoke to Adam face to face in the garden of Eden, thus Adam received revelation straight from the Creator. Ita€™s so dark here that we cana€™t navigate our way around without clear direction from God.
As my tour guide and I were making our way down into the abyss, she said, a€?If you want to know what absolute darkness is a€¦a€? and then she shut off the lights. It is a message that is made of spirit and life with an unex-plainable inherent potency and vitality. Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundancea€? (Isaiah 55:2). On one Pacific island, they eat a pounded root extract called saguaro, and to me it is just so bland.
Written by kings and peasants, with a wide spectrum of education in between, it delivers one mes-sage and one voice.
For instance, Daniel prophesied the correct sequence and time of the Babylonian fall from power, along with the rise and fall of the Medo-Persian, Greek, and Roman empires. The next morninghe examined the pebbles and discovered that the stones were really precious gems. Ia€™d been taught evolution and believed that the Bible was full of fiction, fantasy, and fables. The answer is an emphatic a€?no!a€? And I say that because Ia€™m exhibit Aa€”living proof that you dona€™t need to be a great professor of religion to grasp the Word.
God was able to speak to me through His Word, even though I didna€™t get everything straight the first time.
I have no doubt that if you apply these principles, you too will be able to understand much more, and your life will never be the same. Sometimes you might read a passage in a book and ask yourself, a€?What did the writer mean by that?a€? Unfortunately, you cana€™t call most authors to ask what they meant. If we arena€™t walking in the light He has already shone on our path, why should He give us more? Of course, there are many spiritual symbols in Scripture, but when the Bible says, a€?He woke up in the morning,a€? some people might agonize over this phrase, trying to squeeze some spiritual abstract meaning out of a straightforward verse. Again, we need to approach the Word with a humble, willing hearta€”and open to what the Bible says even if what it says isna€™t exactly what we want to hear. So when you read a verse, you should also read a few verses before it and a few verses after it. It was a rite that enabled them to dodge the fifth commandment, because their wealth was now technically Goda€™s property. Though you dona€™t need to know the original language to be able to understand the Bible, sometimes taking a little time to look up the original meanings of words can be very helpful to enhance comprehension. You need to look at all the relevant verses dealing with a subject and compare them with each other.
Sometimes, wea€™ll hear someone say something like, a€?This is what I think this verse means,a€? or even, a€?I feel in my heart it could mean thisa€? or some other warm fuzzy sentiment. They become a law unto themselves, forgetting that in the multitude of counsel there is safety (Proverbs 11:14). These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.a€? If you do that, diligently studying the Word of God with other Bible-based followers of Jesus, you will be safe. For many, the superficial, shallow, breezy approach to Bible doctrine will not prepare them to defend their faith against the devila€™s clever deceptions. Ita€™s clear that God can work with you wherever you are at, but growing saints must graduate from milk to meat. Stop delaying and get studying; therea€™s a lot nourishing meat in Goda€™s Word just waiting to be assimilated.
The lead ball had been stopped by his mothera€™s Bible, which Houston carried in his knapsack.
There might be a day coming when your Bibles will be taken away and all youa€™re going to have is what youa€™ve stored in your heart. He said, a€?It is written,a€? and we will be able to say the same as long as we are willing to open up the Word now and dive right in. The old articles in the Christian Science Journal and Sentinel are just as relevant today as they were in Mrs.


Eddy states in her book Miscellany 181:2, a€?It is authentically said that one expositor of Daniela€™s dates fixed the year 1866 or 1867 of the return of Christ - the return of the spiritual idea to the material earth or antipode of heaven. You want to keep mortal personality out of your talking and listening to God which is the reason photos of me will not be used on this website. She did not like personality worship because she did not like her own personality to be worshiped. Eddy states, a€?God is Spirit; therefore the language of Spirit must be, and is, spiritual. As you read the Lesson Sermon you can read more than just the citations but you can read around the citation to get a clearer view of why this citation was chosen, who is speaking and was this a person in the Old or New Testament.
Also in a recent article in the Wall Street Journal The ABCa€™s Of E-Reading talks about that at the moment the page numbers on these E-Readers is not there.
Scripture is read along with the quiet simple Truth of Science and Health with Key to the Scripture by Mary Baker Eddy. By that it is meant that you cannot advance if the teachings of another denomination are the opposite of what you are learning in Christian Science. Also in a recent article in the Wall Street Journal The ABCa€™s Of E-Reading talks about that at the moment the page numbers on these E-Readers is not there.A  a€?Page numbers are a problem for e-books, since the number of words on a virtual page depends on the size of the screen and type.
Leta€™s look at the definition of church in the S&H Glossary on page 583.A  Does it say anything about a€?traditional ceremoniesa€??
Crystal balls, palm reading, leaf deciphering, astrology, and talking with the supposed spirits of the dead are not God's ways of communicating with people. She said in 1905 that cancer is a germ (or virus), which medical science began to endorse only in the 1950s.
God knows when prophets are needed to wake people up, warn them, and turn them to Jesus and His Word.
Jesus solemnly warns His end-time church of the danger of blindness and urges them to anoint their eyes with heavenly eyesalve so they will be able to see (Revelation 3:17, 18). Under hundreds of feet of ice, the Nautilusa€™ nuclear reactor not only powered the vessel but enabled the crew to have the filtered air and water needed to reach their destination.
So in this first section of this short book, I want to instill within you a craving for Scripture and revive your awe of Goda€™s Word.
In turn, Adam shared this knowledge with Seth, and Seth passed it down to Lamech, who passed it on to Noah. By the time of Moses, after years of His people being held in bondage in a pagan-infested nation, God saw that is was necessary to codify His messages to humanity. Then, more than 500 years ago, Johann Gutenberg developed the printing press, enabling the mass production of Bibles.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. Sure, it might crystallize, but unlike some food preserved in vinegar, honey will never spoil.
And Jesus Himself is that Word, and like Him, the Bible is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Towser said, a€?A loving Personality dominates the Bible walking among the trees of the Garden and breathing fragrance over every scene.
Moreover, in Revelation youa€™ll find reference to Genesis, and in Genesis youa€™ll find a reference to Jesus. Drug abusers become clean, marriages are restored, and alcohol and gambling addicts are freed. Christ said, a€?I am the bread that came down from heaven.a€? We need to learn to love that bread, morethan the unhealthy food this world has to offer. Whatever you do to increase your time in the Word is going to create a positive blessing for you spiritually. Not only is it a great means of strengthening and fortifying your own soul, but it has tremendous evangelistic potential because youa€™ve got friends and neighbors whom you could bring.
He was happy and sada€”happy he had obeyed and picked up some gems, but sad that he had not picked up more. Yet in a cave, all alone, I picked up the Bible and this dynamic, powerful book changed my life.
He might even smell it and figuratively wrap himself up in her words of love and encouragement. Our sinful natures make us want to do sinful things, and we might not be that eager to surrender to what the Word of God tells us.
Why then build a belief system out of it, especially when no other verse even hints at that subject?
He already has his people out there, sharpening their arguments and twisting Scripture to their ends. So take it with your hands, read with your eyes, store it in your heart, walk it with your feet, tell it with your lips, and live it in your lifea€”starting today! They dedicated their lives to God and Christian Science because each of them were healed in their own lives. In the We Knew Mary Baker Eddy series book three, Calvin Hill said this in an interview with Mrs. She ordained Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and The King James Bible as the only pastors.
Christian Science attaches no physical nature and significance to the Supreme Being or His manifestation; mortals alone do this. Many times Ia€™ll see people reading from one of the magazines while the service is going on.
Wednesday night is testimony night, it good to have in thought what you would like to say if so moved to give a testimony of healing.
Christian Science is Christian Science and it doesna€™t make you better in your own religion. Certainly you dona€™t ignore pain in the body any more than you ignore someonea€™s actions that are causing problems for themselves or others.
Some of the first healings people may experience are the falling away of habits for coffee, tea, drink, and smoking. The Scriptures teach plainly that all who become involved with such things are an abomination (Deuteronomy 18:12). She had been injured in an accident at age nine and had to quit school with only three years of formal education.
She also directed people's attention to the Bible prophecies for the end time--especially Jesus' three-point message for the world today (Revelation 14:6-14)--and urged that they share these messages of hope quickly and worldwide. So when God's remnant church for the end time emerged keeping His commandments, it was time for a prophet.
Moreover, unable to surface for direction, they traversed the dangerous waters using a new invention called the gyrocompass. If youa€™ve never understood why we have the Bible, I want to paint a rich picture for you that will inspire you to open the Bible up and dive into its pages. Though sin had infected the world, Adam and his descendents possessed minds fashioned from the hands of Goda€”more powerful and sophisticated than any supercomputer. As a result, Moses became Goda€™s first scribe, and Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and probably the book of Job, were written during Mosesa€™ days in the wilderness. And Ephesians 6:17 affirms, a€?the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of Goda€?a€”our primary weapon against the enemy.
After a little while sitting there in total darkness, I took out my keychain that had a little LED light.
Always a living Person is present speaking, pleading, loving, working and manifesting Himself.a€? When people read Goda€™s Word with their hearts sincerely seeking to hear what the Spirit is saying, it becomes a liv-ing testament from Christ. Likewise, it could be a sign of bad spiritual health if you have no appetite for the bread of life. You might be saying, a€?Doug, I have no appetite for the Bible.a€? Read it anyway, and as you read it, youa€™ll eventually start developing a taste for it and ultimately crave it.
The Bible says, a€?Love Me and keep My commandments.a€? You cana€™t obey Jesus if you dona€™t love Him. The Bible is filled with priceless riches, but unless we open it and mine its pages, we will be without true wealth. And today, even after many years of studying, I am still blessed with new light when I read my Bible. He will search every word, every nuance, reading between the lines just to understand what his beloved was truly saying. Ia€™ve just got to find a verse to prove it.a€? And theya€™ll start reading the Bible not to hear what God says, but searching for proof texts to support their position. In English, when we hear a€?bottomless pit,a€? we conjure up pictures of a deep well that starts in Kansas and goes straight through the earth coming out in Mongolia. While these are often very helpful, they are not necessarily inspired.) For centuries people built beautiful houses with only hand tools. Youa€™ve got to be careful about building a doctrinal monument around that one verse, as it might have just been a cultural tradition or custom. They probably wona€™t hand you a Bible, yet wea€™re going to need to know how to give an answer for what we believe. The Word of God, the language of spirit is just as powerful to heal today as it was in Christ Jesus time.
For example, recently a person reading the lesson from the full text Quarterly could never figure out why there werena€™t balloons and a band when Jesus came out of the grave. Remember God is everywhere filling all space so God can heal anywhere, anytime, in any place. Today there seems to be Christian Scientist who dona€™t want to face the pain of not attracting new members and so take down standards in church.
Because the Christians Science Service comes from each individuala€™s own inspiration and what they understand about God. Church Manual makes no provision in the list of services for such a€?traditional ceremoniesa€?. A Practitioner is expected to pay their bills in a timely manner.A  Also paying a practitioner is being grateful for the help received.

When I turned it on, it was as though someone had switched on one of those giant spotlights at the grand opening of a new store. Ita€™s like gazing into the electrical room of a skyscraper and seeing thousands of little wires crisscrossing everywhere connecting every function in the building. Wea€™re also told that spiritual things are a€?spiritually discerned.a€? That might seem like common sense, but most people try to read the Bible with their own feelings as the interpreter.
The Bible is a love letter from God to us; should we treat it with less heartfelt interest? And if they cana€™t find a supporting verse they generally twist something to make it fita€”like the man who puts together a jigsaw puzzle with a hammer in one hand and scissors in the other.

Soldiers were sent to arrest Jesus, and they came back saying, a€?Never [a] man spake like this mana€? (John 7:46).
Likewise, many people have no appetite for Goda€™s Word because they gorge on entertainment junk food. They want the Bible to tell them what they want to hear; they want it to say what they want it to say.
My personal letters and correspondence are kept so that if someone was to question a piece of my writing I then have the documentation to show in a court of law. We the workers of today are proving in our lives that Goda€™s word is power and Principle that heals.

Mrs. Eddy knew that the Bible used in Germany was not the Kings James Bible so she did not specifically state in the C.S.

Just because a teacher has a high position in the Church doesna€™t make them a good teacher. Then they want to be cool and mimic other churches with their a€?new ageya€? saying,a€?

If you do, I guarantee your hunger will grow and youa€™ll find a little Bible study library growing up in your home or on your computer.
Eddy stepped forward, placed her hand on my shoulder and patted it gently, saying, a€?My child, my child, my child, youa€™re safe, youa€™re safe, youa€™re safe!a€? Mrs. Human theories are inadequate to interpret the divine Principle involved in the miracles (marvels) wrought by Jesus and especially in his mighty, crowning, unparalleled, and triumphant exit from the flesh. The answers to every problem is already there in the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scripture (MBE).

As the prophecies of these two last chapters refer chiefly to Eastern empire, while the little horn, chap. Reid wrote and article in the 1897 October Journal titled a€?The Second Coming of Christa€?.
Eddy had the opportunity at that point to correct him about who to look to or in Bible terms, who to a€?turn toa€?. But by all her writings and using over a thousand passages from the King James Bible, logic dictates the KIng James Bible is the Bible to be used as the Pastor. Evidence drawn from the five physical senses relates solely to human reason; and because of opacity to the true light, human reason dimly reflects and feebly transmits Jesus' works and words. Look for patterns, such as Man's struggle to be free from an oppressor, whether it's Jews in Egypt or an oppressed diseased body.
This statement alone could read a€?I dona€™t think, I just lovea€?.A  Does this statement mean we dona€™t a€?train up a child in the way he should goa€? as the Bible states? In Ezekiel 3:3, God instructs the prophet, a€?Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee.
Although these modern day biographers books have some good quotes from the notes, you need to look at the books kind of like fiction. Always go back to your books, look up statements made by other people and read for yourself to get clarification. Also, in marking your books you contribute to not wasting paper having to buy a full text quarterly each month or printing the lesson from the computer. I had a friend who could not join a church because she had the thought that these members were perfect as mortals and she had high expectations for these mortal members. Bring him here to Me.a€? Then Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and from that moment the boy was healed. Remember, Jesus says He will bless His end-time church with most-helpful prophetic messages. In writing biographies in this day and age, the books are considered a a€?creative non-fictiona€? genre so you need to sift through what part is the authora€™s 21st Century slant and actual facts. When you buy your complete set of books (S&H - King James Bible) you dona€™t have to replace batteries, use electricity or upgrade.
She expected the student to listen with inspiration expecting good with their thinking centered on God. She would become offended if members did not live up her to her high expectations of them as a mortal or what her five physical senses were saying to her. Then the disciples approached Jesus privately and said, a€?Why couldna€™t we drive it out?a€? a€?Because of your little faith,a€? He told them. Her books, read worldwide, give inspired counsel on health, education, temperance, the Christian home, parenting, publishing and writing, assisting the needy, stewardship, evangelism, Christian living, and more. Also in writing this type of genre the author needs to take into consideration eyewitnesses like family and friends. Eddya€™s writings are the ultimate source for answers because they take you back to the Bible and in turn back to God.
Although these are conveniences nothing takes the place of marking your books and getting close to your books. Some parts of the service like in the formal sense of the word a€?Readera€? means you need to be a member of the church but to give a testimony means that you can participate whether a member or not and that you used an inspired citation(s) from the Bible or S&H. The Christian Science bound volumes (past Christian Science Journal and Sentinel magazine) found in Reading Rooms are a wealth of inspiring articles on healing over the years.
There should be a healing message in both the music and the words.A  Promoting personality worship of singers or song writers in a church service is not Christian Science.
1866, toward the close of the present century, by which time many expect, and more hope, that both Popery and Mahometanism will be overthrown. The goal to be rid of smoking, drinking, tea, or coffee is a good way to begin a€?seeinga€? what you can do in the way of healing and then becoming a member of the church.A  In a church atmosphere you are still working your salvation out.
However, this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting.a€?This same story is repeated in Mark Chapter 9, vs.
Manual is very clear about the type of music and musical instruments to be used in the service. In church and out of church we must a€?See the man of Goda€™s creatinga€? which includes women too. Just reading the Lesson Sermon for the week doesna€™t mean you have a€?studieda€? the lesson. Studying the Lesson involves reading citation around the marked part of the lesson, looking up words you dona€™t understand, maybe writing out an outline to get the completeness of the Lesson. And listening to God because he dearly wants you to understand the qualities and attributes of yourself as image and his deep love for you as his child. I was there for forty days and forty nights, all that time I ate no food and drank no water. The Lord gave me the two tablets on which God had written with his own finger all the words he had spoken to you from the heart of the fire when you were assembled at the mountain. Christian Scientist face the problems down and out of thought by using the many Truths that are found in Mrs.
At the end of the forty days and nights, the Lord handed me the two stone tablets inscribed with the words of the covenant.Matthew Chapter 4, vs.
1-2 (NLT): Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil.
16-18 (NLT): And when you fast, dona€™t make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting.
Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private. As you can see above: Demons are cast out, the Holy Spirit speaks, Moses received the Ten Commandments, and Jesus had the strength to overcome Satana€™s temptations. It can strengthen our faith and get difficult prayers answered.There are different types of fasting.
We are trying this for 21 days to achieve some answers from God and help get some desperate and difficult prayers answered.
Fasting, praying, and special giving during the first month of the year sets the tone for the rest of the year.
Fasting should be done in combination with things that can increase your faith, wisdom, and hearing from the Lord. Read a good Christian book, read Goda€™s Word in the Bible, listen with praise and worship to Christian music, and of course pray. Thought for the week:A  For more advice and understanding read a€“ a€?Fastinga€? by Jentezen Franklin.
22-24: The Lord God used the rib of the man to make a woman, and then he brought the woman to the man.
And the man said, a€?Now, this is someone whose bones came from my bones, whose body came from my body. 13: If a man has sexual relations with another man as a man does with a woman, these two men have done a hateful sin. Most are basically good people that give to charities, help with the homeless, do good deeds and are friendly and nice to people. There are gay celebrities on TV that do wonderful works of mercy and charity for other people. However, if you are gay and dona€™t turn from your present life style and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you will go to the pool of fire (Hell). Yes, there is such a place and it is for eternity.A  If you intend to do it a€?somedaya€™, I hope you dona€™t get hit by a car and die before that happens. He wrote the rule book (the Bible) and it is expressed in it several times that he feels the punishment for this is death.
We are all sinners in one way or another and must try hard to turn from our former self before we knew Jesus as our Lord.
To the ones who say it is genetic or upbringing, I offer this: Alcoholism can be passed down through genes and wife-beating can be passed down through upbringing. God is the highest authority, how do you think he will judge according to the Ten Commandments and his Word in the Bible? Hook up with a good faith based organization like a€?Food for the Poora€? or a€?World Visiona€? and help these people out. God Bless.====================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 1-21-2010. We run the risk of becoming weaker when we stay at home, so gradually we wona€™t even notice.
Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.a€? Notice it says he is looking for someone, like a lion does.
They need Christian friends and other Christian adults if they are to survive in this world. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.a€?7 Because we need the help of good people.
Pastors cannot serve full-time, a building cannot be purchased, missionaries will not be sent out, ministries to the community wona€™t be fulfilled, and the lost wona€™t be saved. And how can they preach unless they are sent?a€?10 Because God says we should go to church regularly. 30-31: And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will morn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
10: But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a mighty roar and the elements will be dissolved by fire, and the earth and every thing done on it will be found out.
36-43: But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. In (those) days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark. Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of the night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So too you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come. Pilots vanish, drivers vanish, wives vanish, neighbors vanish, and it is a world wide supernatural event that happens at the exact same time.
There are no second chances of dropping to your knees and asking for forgiveness because it comes and goes in a blink of an eye. Wars, Nation against Nation, famines, earthquakes, natural disasters, and a sin loving generation. I always interpreted the a€?He will come like a thief in the nighta€? as have a duel meaning.
Some people know in advance when they will die and they, believe it or not, are the lucky ones. Hint: It is hot, miserable, people are gnashing their teeth and screaming, and your caretaker has horns --------- hhmmmmmm. However, if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior and turned your life around you will be going somewhere that is truly pure love. If I am wrong, then worms get me just like you but if I am right I live in love and you dona€™t.
I just dona€™t know where people get their ideas from because the Bible tells it like I do.
Also, it is also true that before Jesus came to the earth as a man, that all the pagan nations were defeated by Goda€™s people the Israelites. Why ---- because the Israelites worshiped the only God there is and the pagans worshiped false ones. A PS:A  Hope youa€™re not on one of those planes where the Pilot is a follower of Christ when the Rapture comes. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. I was impressed by the many many friends who came to offer condolences and said kind things about her. To go through life with so many people that call themselves your family around you is a tribute to the love that is shown and radiates from you. Some are acquaintances, some good acquaintances, others are friends and still others are good friends.
I think I need to add a new one that shows love beyond that of the latter a€“ it is family. Thought for the week:A  Happy Valentines Day !!!!!=============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 2-22-2010. You see the fire trucks pull up and the fire men run from the trucks, get their ladders, hook up the hoses and then ------- sit down and take a coffee break. Your company is told that there is a mother and two children screaming for help from the third floor and they are close to being consumed by the flames. You and your men run over to see what instructions he has but he presents all of you with some Coffee and doughnuts. All of us know of people, friends, and family that have not accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and are not saved. They are like the family in the house.A  Because of pride, fear, or some other human emotion, we either do not share the Word with them or are not persistent with it to get them saved. The people we know then end up dying either naturally or prematurely in an accident and end up burning in the ever lasting flames of Hell. 18-20: And Jesus came and said to them, a€?All authority on heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. There were actually two letters that I have combined and edited to eliminate the womana€™s identity. It is offered here as another a€?building blocka€? about evangelizing and spreading Goda€™s will.
I agree that we are all called to share the gospel with others and that we often fall short of that. The Holy Spirit is the one who draws them, ("No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him" John 6:44) convicts them and makes them see that they are sinners.
People are drawn to God in us when they see something about us that they dona€™t have and they are made thirsty for. But they all have heard the truth many times and they refuse to acknowledge that they are sinners in need of a rescue. My part is to pray for them, live my life for Jesus (let my light shine) and share the truths of the gospel when there is an opening to do so. It took many years, but I am at peace knowing that if they die without knowing Jesus therefore spending eternity in hell, that it was their choice.
Another interesting fact is that we have different witnessing styles and people respond to different styles of witnessing.
But perfect love casts out fear" 1 John 4:18) To love others more than yourself and to know that without Christ they will spend all eternity separated from Him. When I go on mission trips, I pray for the hearts of the people that God is going to put onto my path and I pray that God would give me His eyes to see them as He sees them and His heart to love them as He loves them, and His words to speak to them. Although it is debated if they are actually God speaking, they are recognized by most as books that are still good to teach from.
Still others like the book of Sirach which is used a lot by the Catholic church brings question into mind that it may have been eliminated by Martin Luther just as a statement to his rebellious nature within that church.
He even wanted to eliminate other books including the book of Revelation but, as history records, -- cooler minds prevailed.
60: Then all the people shouted and praised God, who saves those who put their trust in Him. Someone had a dream that as the soldier drew back to hit Christ that he grabbed the soldiers arm.
As they talked and discussed, Jesus himself drew near and walked along with them;Mark 16, vs.
The doors were locked, but Jesus came and stood among them and said, a€?Pease be with youa€?. A Jesus also appeared to 500 others, Saul (whom later became Paul), and to his disciples again when he rose up and ascended into Heaven. Since Biblical times the tradition that the Roman Emperor Domitian ordered that the Apostle John be executed by throwing him into a cauldron of boiling oil has been widely held.
