Read the Bible this week. Links open the HCSB on Biblegateway.com.

This thematic plan attempts to link passages with similar themes. A job that isn’t always easy to do. In reading the verses in each day ask yourself these questions, or make your own questions to ask yourself. Answer as many as possible, but don’t worry if you can’t answer all of them on any given day.

  1. What seems to be the major theme these passages have in common?

  2. What verse, or verses stand out and speak to you?
  3. Who are the people in the passage, and what are they doing, feeling, experiencing?
  4. What relevance do these passages have for your life today? What parallels do you see happening in the passage, to things happening today?
  5. What can you take away in today’s passage to show God’s love to others?
  6. In what way does today’s reading draw you closer to God?
  7. In a sentence or two, summarize the main message of today’s passage as a prayer.

Please note. Though there may not be any adjustments to the Calendar page, or the Weekly Updates in the side bar of the site, we do indeed have a special schedule in store on Easter Sunday.

Sunrise Service: 7:00AM
Breakfast: 8:00AM
Worship Service: 9:00AM

The services are open to all, so come and enjoy the celebration and brekfast. The worship will include special presentations by our Children’s Department, as well as additional dramas.

Come, and join in the praise for the gift of the Gospel. The price that Jesus paid to cover our sin, and the resurrection that has defeated death, and washed us clean. All that remains is to choose God. He has already chosen you.

The embedded video is from the book: Placebo, by Howard Pitman

Take time to listen to these few excerpts from that book. Listen to the testimony of the vision he was allowed to have, and to the message he was sent to tell.

If you don’t believe in visions, or take such things with a skeptical attitude, that’s OK. Just listen and take the words at face value. There’s still an important message to be learned. Consider it a modern parable.

If you believe in the God of the universe, and his words that we have in the pages of the Bible, then you just might be touched, shocked, and amazed at this message. Secrets that Satan doesn’t want you to know are made plain.

Learn the deception and complacent trap that the devil wants Christians to believe. Learn a little of the tactics being used against Christians, and the world at large. Most of all, learn the weapon available to use to fight back against this unseen enemy.

Message

If you don’t care to take the hour it takes to discover the details of this revelation of spiritual warfare, here’s 5 points to understand.

  1. Deception. Like the Laodicean church, Satan wants to make you believe the worship within the walls of the church building is all it takes. He wants to let you believe you can live for yourself the rest of the time.

  2. Satan is real.
  3. Complacency. As in the days of Noah, people are complacent in their ways. Believing things won’t change. Signs are on the horizon, but nobody recognized what it means.
  4. Represent. Be ambassadors for Christ, 24/7.
  5. Join up. God is recruiting his army. He’s gathering and training those who will demonstrate His power.

Think you have what it takes? Strength? Boldness? Accomplishments? Is that a bar set too high for you? Try humility, sorrow, and a broken heart.
