Scripture reading — Lamentations The Book of Lamentations, though only five chapters in length, is powerful, poetic, and a devastating portrait of the consequences of sin. The book is as its name suggest, a book of laments. We find in its pages five laments, penned and enunciated by the prophet Jeremiah, as he gazes upon the rubble that was once the beautiful city of David. With the city destroyed and the majority of the people taken away to Babylon, Jeremiah and a few poor citizens remained in Judah to work the land and serve Babylon. In a prayer of intercession, Jeremiah confessed the sins of His nation Finally, the prophet closed with an imprecatory plea: That the LORD would remember the wickedness of Babylon and that nation would suffer the afflictions she had assailed on Jerusalem There are twenty-two letters in the Hebrew alphabet and each of the verses in chapters 1, 2, 3 and 5 begin with a word using the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet in other words, like our A-Z in English.

“My friend Steven Furtick is one of the most authentic, passionate people I have us into our destiny.” — Judah Smith, lead pastor of The City Church,. Seattle date. It doesn’t matter if it’s the 1,th time you’ve messed up.
Years of ministry leadership experience and personal experience have convinced Dr. Dharius Daniels: there’s no such thing as a casual relationship. All relationships are catalytic – either pushing us forward into our God-given purposes or holding us back. Our spiritual, physical, financial, emotional, and professional progress is greatly impacted by who we allow to be a part of our lives and what part we allow them to play.
With our destiny on the line, relationships are too consequential to nonchalantly roll the dice in managing them. Relationships were God’s idea, writes Daniels, and when we understand and apply what God has to say about them we end up avoiding unnecessary relational turmoil, advancing in all areas of our life, and accomplishing our God-given purpose.
When your purpose is on the line, the cost of relational unintelligence is too great to pay.

It all started with my journey to Israel this past summer. My dad has had his own past with different religions, believes and reads a lot of books about all kinds of religions, but is an atheist. My mom grew up in a very traditional and strict Catholic family. When they finally got married I was three. My mom has since then converted to the Protestant faith and I joined her for church many times when I was younger. However, I stopped going to church after I got baptized except for Christmas , but my whole family is very open and spiritual when it comes to religion.
My first motivational, self-healing, and happiness books were all borrowed from my Dad.
Book of Ezekiel
The visions, and the book, are structured around three themes: 1 Judgment on Israel chapters 1—24 ; 2 Judgment on the nations chapters 25—32 ; and 3 Future blessings for Israel chapters 33— Its later influence has included the development of mystical and apocalyptic traditions in Second Temple and rabbinic Judaism and Christianity.
Ezekiel has the broad three-fold structure found in a number of the prophetic books: oracles of woe against the prophet’s own people, followed by oracles against Israel’s neighbours, ending in prophecies of hope and salvation:. The book moves on to anticipate the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple, explains this as God’s punishment, and closes with the promise of a new beginning and a new Temple. Some of the highlights include: . The Book of Ezekiel describes itself as the words of the Ezekiel ben-Buzi, a priest living in exile in the city of Babylon between and BC.

Today I was reading chapter 5, The Way of Escape. Later in the day, God faithfully gave me a situation to practice how to escape. In this chapter, Pastor Judah says there is always a way of escape when you are tempted. Joseph was given a way of escaping, to run. He left his coat and ran. It would have been easy for Joseph to justify this temptation. God put him in that house. So, today in french class, we were watching a movie called The Spanish Apartment.

That it’s just a matter of opinion. But if we can be honest, there are times when we’re wrong, and admitting it helps us to grow spiritually and relationally. Whether by mistake or intention, we’ve all made errors. Some of our wrongdoings can include misjudging someone based on the first impression, not following through with our word, or failing a friend. And we’ve all missed the mark set by God, having had the wrong understanding of him and what he wants from us.
Yet, whatever the area of failure, being able to admit our offenses will push us closer to the destiny God has for us.

His late father, charismatic pastor Wendell Smith, founded the church in In this exclusive interview, Smith talks about the charismatic movement, his church’s role in culture and more. By prevalent, I mean people are more and more open to it. In the era we live in, the great thing is people aren’t getting hung up on these technical terms as much as they are getting really caught up in the person of Jesus and in the simplicity of Scripture.
I think that’s what’s exciting to me. In the era we’re living in, maybe some of the technical terms won’t be as known, but the expression and living out the Scripture will be very realistic. Always will. A lot of it is the vernacular changing or vocabulary that’s changing. People are functioning very similarly; the gospel remains the same. But its packaging, its delivery is changing, and I think that’s what people—I hope—won’t misunderstand. A new era and generation of leaders and communities and churches, but the gospel is remaining the same.
