Sunday Recap 11/25/07, 7:45; Scriptures for the Day

Greetings 34/39,

Here are the scriptures that Bishop Johnson used at 7:45. Please be sure to get the CD or the DVD to get the entire message.

Topics: Pride & Defiance

Worldliness - Wisdom & Knowledge

Worldly thinking and man's knowledge
Isaiah 47:10

Worldly thinking and answers to life's questions through philosophy, astrology, and other occultic arts.
Isaiah 47:12-13

"For the natural man receiveth not the thins of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
I Cor. 2:14

Worldly thinking claims to be the search for truth.
II Tim 3:7, John 14:6

"And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;"
Ephesians 5:18

You are complete in HIM.
Read Colossians 2:1-13.

Wisdom will crown your life with favor and with glory.
Proverbs 4

The full text for these scriptures will be posted in the COMMENTS section of this message this week.

On 11/25, Bishop Johnson said:

"We become obsessed with knowing things but we don't live it out .... we get full on knowledge but are not able to live in it."

"Real evidence of how much you love HIM is not in how you shout, how you run around the church, not in churchy phrases (e.g. "I blessed"), but in your obedience to God."

Thank you for Coming to the 34/39 Fellowship @ The Lamplight Resource Center

We're so glad that so many of you joined us for cookies, fruit, juice, and fellowship at the Lamplight Resource Center this past Sunday, Nov. 18! We were able to meet 34/39 members after both the 7:45 and the 10:45 services. Please note that you will still be able to use your invitations for 10% off items in the Resource Center this Sunday!

Psalm 103, Bless The Lord, O My Soul, and Forget Not (always remember) HIS Benefits

The text for the Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2007 Thanksgiving service was Psalm 103. Bishop Johnson reminded us to "always remember" God's benefits. The full text for this Psalm is in the comment below. We are taught to especially remember the first five verses:

1Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not (always remember!) all his benefits:

3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

4Who redeemeth (rescues) thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

(Provides unusual favor, unprecedented honor!)

5Who satisfieth thy mouth (life) with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

NOTE: Words in parentheses reflect Bishop Johnson's emphasis.
