Marriage Covenant Study

Marriage Covenant Study
What is a Covenant? 1. The Covenant is a Union confirmed by Blood. 2. A treaty 3. An Alliance or Friendship 4. A Pledge 5. A Contract accompanied by Signs, Sacrifices and a Solemn Oath which seals the relationship. 6. It is a Declaration of Absolute Faithfulness. You will find a part or all of these in a Marriage Covenant between a man and wife. We will consider a few in our study - A Pledge and Absolute Faithfulness. To enter into a Covenant, you must have two parties so in the marriage covenant we have the two parties. In this we make promises and vows to one another. If one breaks the covenant, the covenant is nullified. But what is allowable to break a covenant. You must look back to the promises you and your mate made to one another. We will start in the Book of Matthew and carefully look at the Scriptures and then try to break them down and then we will trace the line or thread throughout the New Testament. Our method of study…

Cell phone vs. Bible

Cell phone vs. Bible

Ever wonder what would
happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our
cell phone?

What if we
carried it around in our
purses or pockets?
What if we
flipped through it several
times a day?

What if we
turned back to go get it if
we forgot it?

What if we
used it to receive messages
from the text?

What if we
treated it like we couldn't
live without it?

What if we
gave it to Kids as
gifts?

What if we
used it when we
traveled?

What if we
used it in case of
emergency?

This is
something to make you
go...hmm....where is my Bible?

Oh, and
one more thing. Unlike
our cell phone, we don't have to worry
about our Bible being disconnected
because Jesus already paid the bill..

Makes you
stop and think, where are my
priorities? And no dropped calls!

P.S. DO WHAT
YOU THINK GOD WOULD WANT
YOU TO DO WITH THIS EMAIL

Trust in the
Lord and *ASAP (Always
Say A Prayer)

Have a
blessed and wonderful
day


Be kinder…

Our Peace is complete

As Christians we either have the peace of God flowing through our souls or we have some sort of anxiety. God's peace comes in different variations just like our anxiety can range from something small to stark raging fear. To give you an example on how God's peace residing in us can be different, imagine a child of God having a full measure of the Holy Spirit's joy. Do you have some kind of picture in your mind? Would you not agree that this individual not only has God's joy but also God's peace?

Now imagine an individual (a child of God) going through something in life and he or she faintly rests upon God and finds him or herself experiencing a small comfort in their soul. Just like there are different degrees of anxiety there are also different degrees of God's peace. For the most part (not in all cases) we as God's children have a conscious choice in the midst of our troubles as to whether we will have earthy anxiety or God's peace.

As child…

FOR EVERY MAN

For Every Man



“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.” Hebrews 2:9. No one is excluded from receiving the free gift of salvation. God died on that cross so every human being on this planet could obtain salvation and continue on to a new and awesome Heavenly home. Jesus suffered and died for all humanity.



What stops man from wanting such a home? Pride. That’s it, it’s prideful to reject God’s free gift of salvation. Only by believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of His only begotten Son can we obtain that free gift. Many might disagree with me and say it’s a hardened heart, or ignorance, even self-reliance that keeps man from believing the truth. Pride is what got in Lucifer’s way and it’s been the one thing that has been so prevalent in so many lost souls since the beginning of time. “The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, w…
