Wrapped in Love Pt. 9
WRAPPED IN LOVE! Back to school pt 9, 11/24/19, 1 Co 12:31-14:1, INTRO: Paul explains the use of spiritual gifts to very young, yet active new ch with no real ch experience. It seems the ch was in a learning curve on how to operate in the gifts of the Spirit. In this season of gift giving, it is appropriate to talk about gift giving also. In my family growing up Christmas presents were always wrapped up, half the fun of Christmas. Unwrapped was not very exciting. Paul is teaching that; all the gifts of the spirit should be wrapped up in LOVE. We are to avoid operating in the gifts for self-gratification or a self- serving prideful manner but to humbly approach the gifts with a willingness to help others. Prop: Gifts wrapped in love are the best!

The Power of the Stretch
THE POWER OF THE STRETCH! 11-10-19 Lk 5:12-13  Mt 12:9-13 INTRO: Bogus video on FB. Everyday stretch before lifting/walking. When trying to get into shape, stretching can be painful but necessary. Finished week of Fire Chasers. It’s time for each of us to experience the power of the stretch. PROP: W/O a stretch we will never be Fire Chasers!

PROGRAMED BUT POWERLESS!
Co 12, INTRO: The Corth. Ch was a young, immature body. They had no church heritage, experience, they had come straight out of the world. They were growing, developing, maturing in spiritual matters. They were babies in everything. Clueless about what Ch should be like. So now all the egghead theologians have taught a powerless gospel. So that now in the US the Ch is programmed but powerless. Fads run thru the Ch. One of those fads is how to grow a ch. quickly by using canned/programed services that let people feel comfortable but with no conviction. Using lights, videos, multiple canned services that run on one hr. schedules; simply programs the power of the HS out of their worship experience. Bible commentators have belittled the Corinthian ch and its perceived immaturity. Downplaying the use of the power of Godand spiritual gifts as necessary for today’s ch. Sayingthat the Corth. Ch. was out of order as would any ch. like that would be today. Therefor while 85% of Ch’s worldwide, operate in the gifts and encourage everyone to pray in tongues, in the US it is reversed. So how do we grow this ch? By getting back to the power and staying away from programs. PROP: Spiritual gifts are a must for today’s ch.

CLEARING UP THE CONFUSION! Back to School Pt. 6
We have an advantage, we can observe what should be proper behavior in Ch. How we act, what is said, how we dress ect. Paul was writing to a messy church, a ch. that needed real, practical answers to life’s difficult situations. Corinth: 200,000 pop, commercial center, deep demonic entrenchment, Two major cult temples Poseidon-Neptune, Aphrodite (Venus), 1000 female slaves, temple prostitutes, no charge to men, if served Aphrodite. Immorality was a virtue. All female dominated society. They had no church heritage, experience, they had come straight out of the world. They were growing, developing, maturing in spiritual matters. They were babies in everything. INTRO: What is proper in Church?

LIBERTY IS A PRIVILEGE! Back to School Pt 5
LIBERTY IS A PRIVILEGE! Pt 5,  Back to school. Study of 1Co. INTRO: What do we allow to regulate our Christianity? What is our motivation for living out our Christian faith? Paul says love for others should be the reason for the freedoms we choose. Yes, scripture does provide guidelines to live by but the motivation for abiding within these guidelines should always be, how it will affect others? PROP: The boundaries of freedom is love.

SATISFIED, Back to school. Pt 4
Polygamist society Sexual depravity was rampant. V1-2, Sex is good! Now, getting down to the questions you asked in your letter to me. First, Is it a good thing to have sexual relations? 2 Certainly—but only within a certain context. It's good for a man to have a wife, and for a woman to have a husband. Sexual drives are strong, but marriage is strong enough to contain them and provide for a balanced and fulfilling sexual life in a world of sexual disorder.

Protect this House-Corinth Church
Protect this House/Slogan I WILL. 1 Cor 5:1-7 (Open) Corinth was one of the largest cities in the Roman world. Corinth was located in Greece. They worshiped roman gods. Corinth was a port city with two main ports that occupied trade routes.,strategic commercial city that sought international pleasures. Corinth was the center of the sports arena all around the world. The temple of Apollo.Corinth was a lot like the big cities we visit today. Action City. The church of Corinth was a small home church. A possibility that the church met in Priscilla and Aquila‘s house.The church was started as a result of the mission trips that Paul was on. The church was founded by Paul and was probably about 5 years old at this time

Back to School Pt. 3
PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS! Back to school Pt 3, 1Co 6 INTRO: Have you noticed we don’t live in a perfect world. It can get messy, and way too real, especially for Christians. We need practical answers to the difficult situations of life. Paul was writing to a messy church, a ch. that needed real, practical answers to life’s difficult situations. Corinth: 200,000 pop, commercial center, deep demonic entrenchment, Two major cult temples Poseidon-Neptune, Aphrodite (Venus), 1000 female slaves, temple prostitutes, no charge to men, if served Aphrodite. Immorality was a virtue. All female dominated society. They had no church heritage, experience, they had come straight out of the world. They were growing, developing, maturing in spiritual matters.

Reliance! Back to School
What would life be like if our children never grew up? Imagine changing diapers the rest of your life or being asked a 1000 questions a day? Paul wanted this baby church to grow up, mature and become healthy. Slow start, as a ch they were starting slow. Corinth: 200,000 pop, commercial center, deep demonic entrenchment, Poseidon- Neptune Latin, spirit of the sea, two ports, Aphrodite (Venus), 1000 female slaves, temple prostitutes, no charge to men, if served Aphrodite. Immorality was a virtue. All female dominated society. The ch was a young, immature. They had no church heritage, experience, they had come straight out of the world. They were growing, developing, maturing in spiritual matters. They were babies in everything. Like all Christians they and we have a tendency to fall back on the flesh rather than depending on the Spirit.

A Good Fight!
Eat My Dust......  Anyone who is trying to serve the Lord will face  resistance. If comes in different forms but mostly thru people, even Christians. They are like no see-ums,  gnats at the beach, almost invisible but they can  pack a powerful sting. There will always be gnats  around, critics. They are sent to you slow down,  saying it doesn’t take all that. Implying you are too  radical, too intense, too hyper for Jesus. They want  to rain on your fiery faith, cool you off, put water on  your faith. You have enemies who want to  demoralize you. Get you to stop, back off. Fight the  good fight of faith. Refuse to compromise, back  down, slow up, change course.

Taboo! Pt. 5
Sex!   Disclaimer: I may say something to offend, I may  sound unfeeling, I may say something that you  disagree with. My purpose is to help not hurt, I  will stand solely on the WOG for my opinions.  Sex, masturbation, LGBTQ lesbianism, cross  dressing, transvestites, near nudity, Society wants to  move our moral plumb line. Ex: Influence the leaders  change a nation, Obama, went into office stating  marriage is between a man and a women, 8 yrs later, endorses same sex marriage. Mat 16:11 (NLT2)  ‘Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and  Sadducees.’”

Taboo! Pt. 4
TABOO! Democrat/Republican or Biblicans? Pt 4,  6/30/19, Mat 5:13-16 INTRO: Disclaimer: I may say  something to offend, I may sound unfeeling, I  may say something that you disagree with. My  purpose is to help not hurt, I will stand solely on  the WOG for my opinions. Salt and light, engage  the culture, There is a warning in v13, ‘if salt  becomes tasteless’. Never be accused of being a  tasteless Christian. We have stayed in the shadow of politics too long. There are many ways to get  involved, start locally; help at voting precinct, city  council, ect. Don’t be a deist. God created it, we can  only watch it run down, so no need to make a  difference.  PROP: Should Christians be involved in politics?

Taboo! Mental Illness
 Disclaimer: I may say something to offend, I  may sound unfeeling, I may say something that you  disagree with. My purpose is to help not hurt, I will  stand solely on the WOG for my opinions. Doctors  don’t know the cause of mental issues it or have a  cure for it. They can treat the symptoms but cannot  cure. Mental illness: suicide, fear, depression-  (feelings of severe despondency and dejection from  within the mind) oppression (prolonged cruel or  unjust treatment or control, from an outside source).  Anxiety, ADHD, bipolar, Post traumatic stress  disorder (PTSD) traumatic experience, Doubt,  loneliness (demonic oppression, demonization?)  STRESS. Should we place mental illness in the  same category as every other forms of illness? What  do you take if the mind/spirit are sick?

It's A Comeback!
IT’S A COMEBACK! 4/28/19, Mk 14: 27-31, INTRO:  Everybody loves a good comeback story. When  facing impossible adversity, somehow people  overcomes the odds and wins. History is full of them.  Tiger woods, 11 yrs. since last major (Masters) 3  surgeries and one huge divorce. Michael Jordon:  another kid in the gym, with 50 of his classmates,  trying out for the Emsley A. Laney High School  varsity basketball team. At 5’10”, couldn’t dunk.  Didn’t make it, went home, locked himself in his room and cried. Then he picked himself up and turned the  cut into motivation. “Whenever I was working out and got tired and figured I ought to stop, I’d close my  eyes and see that list in the locker room without my  name on it,

Defying the Odds
DEFYING ALL ODDS! 4/21/19, 1 Pet 1:17-21 Lk 24:1-12,  INTRO: VIDEO, What are the chances of anyone fulfilling all  61 and over 300 references to Biblical prophetic predictions?  Hebraic interpretation requires that for a prophecy to be true is must be 100% accurate. 61 prophecies and 300 references to those in Bible. 500 to 1000 yrs before

Heart for the House - Apostle Steve Deitz
HEART FOR THE HOUSE! Pt1, 3/7/19, Heb 10:19-25  INTRO: Congregating Statistics: 40% of Americans “say”  they go to church weekly. -20 % are actually attending at  the rate of 1.8 times per month. More than 80 percent of  Americans are finding more fulfilling things to do on  weekends. Why is the ch sporadic in its congregating?  Proper translation of Gk word ‘church’ is congregation:  def: to congregate, to come together, in one location.   Do we have a heart for the house?

Avoiding the Deadly Trap of the Enemy-Prophetess Balinda Deitz
NO ONE PLANS ON FALLING AWAY; NO ONE EVER SAYS, “TODAY, I THINK I’LL TRY TO  DEVELOP A HARDENED, COLD HEART.” THESE ENTER THROUGH SCHEMES AND TRICKS  THE ENEMY USES AGAINST US.  WE MUST NEVER BE SO NAÏVE AS TO THINK “WE WILL  NEVER WALK  AWAY FROM GOD”.  “If you think you stand take care lest you fall.”  We know that  we live in the end time.  Matthew speaks by the Holy Spirit a warning regarding the time we live in.

PRINCIPLE OF PLENTY! Living in the Black Pt. 2
  Government shut down: Many well  paid government employees after missing their 1st pay check last week are freaking out! Why? 78% of  Americans live paycheck to paycheck. 58% have less the $1,000 in reserve and can only pay $400 in unexpected  expense. Most New Year’s resolutions have collapsed.  They started out with good intentions but already have  failed to execute. The Bible makes it clear that God  wants His children to prosper. Not everyone will  experience this promise. To receive the benefit of God’s  promise of plenty you have to take it by faith.  Faith is  believing, speaking and acting on His Word.

THE PRINCIPLE OF DEBT: Living in the black pt 4
  Walls are part of our history. God built the first one around the Garden of Eden. Nehemiah rebuilds the wall of Jerusalem: The place of  blessing. Many are in need of repairing the wall of  financial security. Thru attacks, negligence and poor  decisions we have holes in the walls of our finances.

PRINCIPLE OF DISCIPLINE, Living in the black pt. 3
Paper bag, avoiding the obvious.  To stabilize our financial life we must apply  discipline, self-control, restraint, will power and the  money principles of the Bible. “Statistically in every ch. in  our area, 78% are living pay check to pay check, 58% in  this room have less the $1,000 in reserve and could only  pay maybe $400 in unexpected expense. Pr 16:3 Commit your works to the LORD And your plans will be established.

PRINCIPLE OF PROVISION! Living in the Black pt. 1
 Mat 17:24-27 INTRO: Are you struggling over  lack of money? Do you have enough surplus to cover the cost of a set of tire or repair, what if your frig breaks,  would be able to replace it w/o paying for it on credit?  Most divorces are rooted in money mismanagement.  Accounting term, red negative balance; black positive  balance. Our goal is live in the black so we can bless  others. Marcus Benjamin. This series is to help you and  others you invite.

The Old Stress Trick
 Christmas season, many are wearied by  preparing for the season. Cooking, special gatherings,  busyness. Life can wear on us. So many things can pull  on us, to the point we miss the reason for the season.  Weariness/stress when not relieved can lead to things  like heart disease, diabetes, thyroid issues, abuse of  alcohol, drugs, effects on our immune system  compounding issues like fatigue, arthritis, autoimmune  disorders, chronic infections, sleep disorders, lack of  concentration, muscle pain ect. These keep us from  being the best that God wants us to be. Devil, demons –  to distribute destinies.

THREE THINGS!
THREE THINGS! Luke 4:1-13 11/25/18. There are 3 things Satan doesn’t want you know about your identity. Three things Satan will challenge you on. In some respects the Ch. has been duped into believing that we are less than what Jesus was when He was on the earth. That we are more or less helpless to the deeds, activities of Satan and the world. That the things Jesus did as a man were to just prove who He is as Messiah, that we shouldn’t reach for the power and authority given to all faith believers. Satan is terrified of any Christian discovering their true identity in Christ.
