It’s All About Jesus

I stated to someone, and continue to pray that they know Him. Jesus tore the veil, made us one with the Father.

“Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”              John 4:10

“Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split…”                               Matthew 27:51

“Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, ‘Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.”  Revelation 12:10

For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” Colossians 2:9-10

“Christ in you” Colossians 1:27

Do You Like Yourself?

“You are the temple of the Holy Spirit” 1 Corinthians 6:19

Do you treat yourself well? Would you speak with a friend similarly? Are you your own worst enemy?

My friend advises:

  • Be kind to yourself
  • Give yourself a big hug…from Jesus
  • Don’t listen to those peripheral people who are jealous. God created you for several reasons.

Another woman testifies:

  • I like myself straight, being able to make someone laugh, to encourage someone…without the drugs.

“With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.”   James 3:9

“Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’”  Genesis 1:26

Power Pack – Holy Spirit

People talk about spirits, but do we know the Holy One?

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” explains Jesus in John 16:13 (NKJV)

“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” Paul preaches in Romans 8:2

“The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,  the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.” Isaiah 11:2

“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” Romans 8:11

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” Jesus says in John 14:26

“And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” Ephesians 4:30 (NIV)

Baptism – Refreshed

“All my springs are in You.” Psalm 87:7

“Then Peter said to them, ‘Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38.

“Praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.”             Acts 2:47.

Second time: ‘taking a splash’ in the redemptive waters of Jesus Christ. Praise God, Hallelujah! Jesus says, ‘Come to Me,’ hallelujah! Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Father for new life, new walk and new friends.

God’s Word at Work in the World

Hundreds of thousands of people outside of the U.S. study God’s Word through Community Bible Study every week in more than 100 countries. Here is a little bit of how we do it:

Translating
We want to remove any barriers that might keep people from attending a Bible study in their country. Being able to study the Word of God in your heart language is a critical step in this process, which is why we are constantly translating our Bible studies. For many, we provide one of the first in-depth Bible studies available in their language. Our translators work hard to keep up with the demand for more lessons.

CBS has courses in more than 70 languages:

Albanian, Amharic, Anglicized English, Arabic, Armenian, Bahasa, Bari, Basque, Bemba, Bulgarian, Burmese, Cebuano, Changana, Chichewa, Chinese (Cantonese), Chinese (Mandarin), Creole, Czech, Danish, Dioula, Dutch, English, Farsi, Fijian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Gourmanchema, Hakha Chin, Hausa, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Khmer, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi, Korean, Kyrgyz, Lango, Latvian, Lithuanian, Luganda, Malagasy, Malayalam, Marathi, Mizo Chin, Moore, Nepali, Norwegian, Nuer, Oromiffa, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Runyoro, Russian, Serbian, Shona, SiSwati, Slovakian, Spanish, Spanish (Castellano), Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog, Tamil, Telegu, Thai, Tigrinya, Ukrainian, Urdu, Welsh

Training
As local believers express an interest in starting a CBS class in their area, our CBS international team (which often includes CBS International Ambassadors) comes alongside these believers, praying with them and training them. Local leaders are trained to effectively teach, shepherd and facilitate our studies. Click here to find out more about our International Ambassador ministry and how you can help people in other countries engage with God and His Word.

Caring
Relationships are crucial! God gave us the ultimate example of a caring shepherd in His Son, Jesus. A good shepherd always places the needs of his sheep ahead of his or her own needs. Our CBSI shepherds give sacrificially of their time because of their love for Jesus and His people.

“King of Kings

and Lord of Lords, is Jesus,”

the young man stated. He wanted to impress on me where the Bible says you’re not to condemn a man for stealing in order to eat.  That’s a great start!

I’m reading this book “The Ragamuffin Gospel” by Brennan Manning, Multnomah Books, 1990.  It’s dynamite about how stuck up we all are.  It’s based on Matthew 9:9-13, where Jesus is eating and having fellowship with so called sinners, you’ll look at people differently when you read it, too.

“for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13 (NIV)

“People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy himself when he is starving. Yet when he is found, he must restore sevenfold; He may have to give up all the substance of his house.” Proverbs 6:30-31 (NKJV)

Healing Rooms International

“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in His sight, and wilt give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.” Exodus 15:26 (KJV)

I highly recommend the Healing Rooms wherever you live. Cal Pierce taught Healing Room Training that I was blessed to attend. I’ve also been to several Healing Rooms over the years. The churches allow Healing Rooms to use their space, but have no authority over them. It’s God Who heals the mind, body and soul, not religion or church building.

“Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus’ feet, and He healed them.” Matthew 15:30

Love Song

I wanna sing You a love song, Lord.  What could I ever give You that You haven’t given us first?

“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly as this? For all things come from You, and of Your own we have given You.” David prays to the Father, 1 Chronicles 29:14 (NKJV).

“The Lord your God is in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

“Therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My Name.” Psalm 91:14.

“What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?” Psalm 8:4

“Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, bless His name; proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.” Psalm 96: 1-3

Say It!

“Therefore I will not keep silentI will speak out in the anguish of my spirit,
    I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.” Job 7:11 (NIV)

“I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O Lord, thou knowest.” Psalm 40:9 (KJV).

“The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” Matt 20:31 (NIV)

Psalm 118:17 (NKJV), “I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the Lord.

“And said to Him, ‘Do You hear what these are saying?’ And Jesus said to them, ‘Yes. Have you never read,      “Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise“?'” Matthew 21:16 (NKJV)

Esther 4:

Vs. 14, “For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet, who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

Vs. 16, “I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.” Proverbs 16:24

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Like an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold is a wise rebuker to an obedient ear.” Proverbs 25:11-12.

Open rebuke is better than love carefully concealed.” Proverbs 27:5.
