Hi Everyone!

Great lessons today in the Lord. Have a listen if you have the time. (

The Bible study today was from I Timothy, Chapter 2. After Paul exhorts all folks to pray for everyone, hands raised high in worship, he reminds Timothy that we worship One God, Jesus is our Mediator between us and the Father, and Jesus died for the sins of all mankind. Great! Then he gets specific about problems in the church in Ephesus, one of which had to do with the women in the church drawing undue attention to themselves, taking away the focus of worship. He then goes on to talk about women accepting teaching quietly with humility and to not teach men. Paul references the roles God made for men and women, original sin, and the curses on men and women. Now, women today may not appreciate this or understand it, but God made us and He knows what correction and reminders we need. The focus of this chapter is to help Timothy deal with and overcome the problems in the church he was sending Timothy to. God values men and women the same, but we do have different roles specific to gender and to our individual purpose. It's enough to say today that we all need to teach and learn with humble hearts, follow God's laws, and spread the gospel message. And we cannot do that if we are overly involved in our flesh!

The sermon today was on Matthew Chapter 24, which is a fantastic blend of prophesy by Jesus, warnings, and encouragement. The disciples ask Jesus about what's coming and when it will come, and He address what will come in their lives (martyred for the Lord), the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD, the gathering, tribulation, the final battle, and the 1,000 year reign. It's really an infomercial on the book of Revelations (which the disciples did not have yet), but more than that, Jesus warns us all, now, about not being deceived, not following false teachers, prophets, and false 'christ' figures. He warns us to be good stewards and to faithfully serve and not to be looking for signs, wonders, and prophesy beyond what is in the Bible. He will bring these for His purpose now and when ever. Our primary service to Him is to preach the gospel message to all those God has brought into our lives. We have plenty to do until He returns for us in the gathering! We need to trust Him in that...where ever and when ever He calls us, that is where we will be. With Him. We must serve Him now...this is our time! Yes, the end times will come, and likely come soon.
