02/24/24 Gathering: Where Faith and Victory Meet


Worship:

The church gathering began with an instruction; The LORD desired for the church to ASK of Him. Pastor Chasen exhorted the Church, through the reading of Matthew 7:7-11, to make our requests known to the LORD – to Ask, Seek, and Knock of Him. The LORD desires to help His children, so He asks us to Ask of Him. Therefore, we can sing in faith, “My God shall supply all of my needs according to His riches in glory.”


Teaching:

As the worship set came to an end, Apostle Garth led the Church to Proverbs. Proverbs 3 reminds the church about our relationship with God – Our Father. We are in a covenant relationship with Yahweh through Christ, so we are people of covenant. As God’s Children, we must allow the Living Word to live in us and choose to listen to our Father’s instruction. Our faith in our Father’s instruction will challenge any obstacle that tries to get in our way. The church was encouraged to step into the adventure, the greater things, with our Father. To those obstacles that threaten to move us to doubt, we must declare “Enough is enough” and go forward with faith in God’s word. This is where Faith and Victory will meet.

 

My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.” Proverbs 3:1-3

 

Redig the Wells

 

“We are not called to be dry places. We are not dry wells.” – Pastor Jonathon

 

“Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.” Psalm 84: 5-7

 

We will flow with rivers of living water. God is looking for those who will flow with Him. Angels encamp around the children of God – Heaven on Earth. We will see the establishment of Heaven on Earth. Miracles, signs, and wonder should not and will not be uncommon. Revival will come to those who have prepared – those who have re-dug their wells. We must redig the well, establish the well, and protect the well. Jesus is enthroned and we have been given the authority and the power of God to tell Satan “You are not welcome here.”


“A life of faith is marked by a life of prayer.” - Pastor Jonathon

 

Prayer is a catalyst for revival. “Suddenly a sound like that of a violent rushing wind came from heaven…” (Acts 2:2). Persistence in prayer produces a suddenly. It was after this “suddenly” that the church began to grow.


“So those who accepted his message were baptized, and that day about 3,000 people were added to them. And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers. Then fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles.” (Acts 2: 41-43).


Suddenly, the well was re-dug, and then the well had to be established. The well was established through devotion “to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers.” (Acts 2:43).


The Apostle’s teaching is the teaching of the truth of God’s word. To follow the Apostle’s teaching means to not only be hearers of the word, but doers. The Apostle Paul commands the church in the New Testament to “Imitate me, as I imitate Christ.”


The Fellowship can be described as a partnership. It is the body of Christ moving together with direction and vision in mind. It is the Church working together to accomplish the plans of God on Earth.


The Breaking of Bread is synonymous with intimacy and exposure. It is more than rubbing shoulders, but getting into each other’s lives, carrying one another’s burdens, and celebrating one another’s victories. This is a deeper relationship that requires trusting the love of others and knowing that the other person is trusting your love for them. This is where discipleship and growth are given opportunity.


Prayer is to take up one another’s burdens and to have each other’s back, not only physically but also spiritually. Prayer calls the Church into the bonds of fellowship as we lift each other in prayer we can encourage one another in the Spirit. The Apostle Paul says, “I wish you could all prophesy” in the letter to the Corinthians. The spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus. When we pray for each other, Jesus can give us insight and wisdom for that person so it may be prayed out or used to encourage that person in the LORD. When we pray, we are seeking the Lord for His word on a matter. With His word, we overcome.

 

Instructions:

The Painting: [for the full story go to Facebook live recording]

The church was told to remember that miracles happen, so we should stand strong and believe God in those seemingly impossible situations. The creation of that painting was a miracle, and the church was asked to allow the painting to serve as a reminder that we love and serve a God of Miracles. Also, the painting is a product of obedience. So, when God speaks trust and obey Him. Follow the word of the LORD.

 

Words to Consider:

Our flesh is made of the dust of the Earth. It is our carnal nature that stops up the well and it is our carnal nature that gets in the way of re-digging the well.

Expect Revival and Power – all the Earth will Shout His Praise!  

 

Be Reminded:

-God is faithful, and we have His faithfulness! Remain faithful to God.

-Our Focus is Jesus & His return. Our Foundation is the Faith of God.

-Spend time in Proverbs 3:5-6.
