Bible Study: 07/14/22 Mrs. CJ Why am I going through this? What is God trying to teach me? In which areas is he trying to develop us in? Grumbling against God is due to our lack of knowledge of him and how he operates. Through knowing, we’ll go through life’s circumstances without speaking out against God and doubting. Jeremiah 2:1-8 (8) “The priests did not ask, ‘Where is the Lord?’ Those who deal with the law did not know me; the leaders rebelled against me. The prophets prophesied by Baal, following worthless idols.” somewhere along the way, they went after other gods and forgot about what God did for them and taught them. When we forget, we draw farther away from him because we no longer know him and his character. “In all your years of adultery and detestable sin, you have not once remembered the days long ago when you lay naked in a field, kicking about in your own blood.” ‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭16:22‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Isaiah 5:11-13 “What sorrow for those who get up early in the morning looking for a drink of alcohol and spend long evenings drinking wine to make themselves flaming drunk. They furnish wine and lovely music at their grand parties— lyre and harp, tambourine and flute— but they never think about the Lord or notice what he is doing. So my people will go into exile far away because they do not know me. Those who are great and honored will starve, and the common people will die of thirst.” they are taking pleasures in the world and joining in on what the world has to offer. People perish because they don’t know God. Isaiah 1:2-3 “Listen, O heavens! Pay attention, earth! This is what the Lord says: “The children I raised and cared for have rebelled against me. Even an ox knows its owner, and a donkey recognizes its master’s care— but Israel doesn’t know its master. My people don’t recognize my care for them. Oh, what a sinful nation they are— loaded down with a burden of guilt. They are evil people, corrupt children who have rejected the Lord. They have despised the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on him.” signs of not knowing God and forgetting about him is found through our deeds and actions. Why do you read your word? What does your prayer life with God look like? Are you dedicating time for him or forgetting about him? **We should be constantly developing our relationship with God. Hosea 4:1-6 “Hear the word of the Lord, O people of Israel! The Lord has brought charges against you, saying: “There is no faithfulness, no kindness, no knowledge of God in your land. You make vows and break them; you kill and steal and commit adultery. There is violence everywhere— one murder after another. That is why your land is in mourning, and everyone is wasting away. Even the wild animals, the birds of the sky, and the fish of the sea are disappearing. “Don’t point your finger at someone else and try to pass the blame! My complaint, you priests, is with you. So you will stumble in broad daylight, and your false prophets will fall with you in the night. And I will destroy Israel, your mother. My people are being destroyed because they don’t know me. Since you priests refuse to know me, I refuse to recognize you as my priests. Since you have forgotten the laws of your God, I will forget to bless your children.” + Proverbs 1:29 “For they hated knowledge and chose not to fear the Lord.” ‭ “Hated knowledge” When you refuse to obey God, even though knowing the right thing to do Unwillingness to follow after the Lord’s word; the information God reveals to allow us to know him **Knowing God creates change through repentance and obeying his will. **As children, they are humbled enough to see truth as their reality without second guessing. Unless we become like a child before God, we will never enter the Kingdom of God because we don’t live off of his word. We need to rely on him solely knowing that we can do nothing without his wisdom and guidance. we can’t be learned and enter into his dwelling. We need to be willing to be seen as gullible in man’s eyes to be a child before God Humble - lower your thoughts and reasons and elevate what he says **Nothing hinders the Spirit. With God, all things are possible. **It’s our job to test to see if ___ is from God. We’ll know if words are from God based on the fruits of the things man says. Ways we hate knowledge: we become offended by his word (through others) God’s word becomes foolish to us and we no longer claim it We avoid his word Avoiding his words becomes easier and easier once we begin. We’ll find it hard to repent for the bigger things because we refuse to conform to the small things we rebel in. we don’t recieve it until it’s “for us” We won’t be able to receive knowledge from God until we believe every word is for us because it’s being received as a body. we don’t respond to God when he calls. We hit snooze when he tells us to wake up **Repentance requires grace, it’s a whole mind and heart change. **Seeking after God reveals our heart’s desire(s). It shows, though imperfect, we still strive to become more like him. “Be still” - let go and surrender what is keeping you from trusting God Hebrews 3:7-19 “That is why the Holy Spirit says, “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled, when they tested me in the wilderness. There your ancestors tested and tried my patience, even though they saw my miracles for forty years. So I was angry with them, and I said, ‘Their hearts always turn away from me. They refuse to do what I tell them.’ So in my anger I took an oath: ‘They will never enter my place of rest.’ Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters. Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God. You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. Remember what it says: “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled.” And who was it who rebelled against God, even though they heard his voice? Wasn’t it the people Moses led out of Egypt? And who made God angry for forty years? Wasn’t it the people who sinned, whose corpses lay in the wilderness? And to whom was God speaking when he took an oath that they would never enter his rest? Wasn’t it the people who disobeyed him? So we see that because of their unbelief they were not able to enter his rest.” **Unbelief comes from a hardness of our hearts. **Don’t allow your life’s circumstances to make you doubt God and forget his being. How do we know that we know God? When our actions are aligned with his word We know his voice How to learn about God: Ephesians 4:17-32 “With the Lord’s authority I say this: Live no longer as the Gentiles do, your old way of living for they are hopelessly confused. Their minds are full of darkness; they wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him. They have no sense of shame. They live for lustful pleasure and eagerly practice every kind of impurity. But that isn’t what you learned about Christ. Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, assuming you’ve changed through your knowledge throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy. So stop telling lies. Let us tell our neighbors the truth, for we are all parts of the same body. And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.” “If you are a thief, quit stealing. Instead, use your hands for good hard work, and then give generously to others in need. Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.” Matthew 11:29-30 “Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”” take your pick. Either way, we’re going to have a yoke to carry. We have to decide whether we want to choose the yoke of bondage or freedom in God. We have two natures. The one we constantly feed is the one that will prevail in our lives. **It may not be bad but does it have any spiritual substance? **God’s yoke leads to peace and rest ** There’s no substitute for what God gives to us Colossians 3:15 “And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.” if you don’t have peace, there needs to be a new level of submission to the Lord. 1 Corinthians 2:6-14 “Yet when I am among mature believers, I do speak with words of wisdom, but not the kind of wisdom that belongs to this world or to the rulers of this world, who are soon forgotten. No, the wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God—his plan that was previously hidden, even though he made it for our ultimate glory before the world began. But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord. That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us. When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit’s words to explain spiritual truths. But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means.” the Spirit is important in learning about God. Ephesians 5:13-16 “But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them, for the light makes everything visible. This is why it is said, “Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.” So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.” When we know God we’ll be able to hear what God is saying to us “Know God” - his character and attributes Through knowing God’s word, we allow his word to filter our actions, the words of others and our thoughts. We’ll develop convictions as to what to do and not to do. His word creates in us peace and lack there of based on the borders that we remain in or go out of. we need to glorify him as we are filled with more of him In life we learn not to trust people early (old way of living). When we renew our minds with Christ and desire his milk, we’ll be given a different outlook as to who God is and his character (new way of living through our new knowledge of him). We won’t put the perception of man onto God because we know. Faith - being fully persuaded to give everything Are you committed/dedicated/have enough faith to what God is doing to endure it all? “Lord of Heaven’s Army” “Army” - defends a nation When we are committed to God and do as he says, he will defend us. He will defend us because he loves us but is also faithful to his word, he will do all he says.

“They went in whatever direction the spirit chose, and they moved straight forward in any direction without turning around. When the living beings moved, the wheels moved with them. When they flew upward, the wheels went up, too. The spirit of the living beings was in the wheels. So wherever the spirit went, the wheels and the living beings also went. When the beings moved, the wheels moved. When the beings stopped, the wheels stopped. When the beings flew upward, the wheels rose up, for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels.” ‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭1:12, 19-21‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord. Let us lift up our hearts and our hands to God in heaven, and say: “We have sinned and rebelled and you have not forgiven.” ‭ “But now this is what the Lord says: “Do not weep any longer, for I will reward you,” says the Lord. “Your children will come back to you from the distant land of the enemy. There is hope for your future,” says the Lord. “Your children will come again to their own land. I have heard Israel saying, ‘You disciplined me severely, like a calf that needs training for the yoke. Turn me again to you and restore me, for you alone are the Lord my God. I turned away from God, but then I was sorry. I kicked myself for my stupidity! I was thoroughly ashamed of all I did in my younger days.’ “Is not Israel still my son, my darling child?” says the Lord. “I often have to punish him, but I still love him. That’s why I long for him and surely will have mercy on him.” ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭31:16-20‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “And I will give them one heart and one purpose: to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship me, and they will never leave me.” ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭32:39-40‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Bible Study: Harold Strength Word from Bible Study: Mr. Harold God has sat us in a place to build our strength. But He's requiring us to build a specific kind of strength. A strength that will allow us to access His power in a way we haven't seen before in order to build what He's been asking us to build. 2 Chronicles 16:7-9 NIV “At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him: “Because you relied on the king of Aram and not on the Lord your God, the army of the king of Aram has escaped from your hand. We have to be aware of missed opportunities. We miss the mark because we put our faith and trust in ourselves and not in God. When we rely on God, He delivers our enemy to us. Were not the Cushites and Libyans a mighty army with great numbers of chariots and horsemen? Yet when you relied on the Lord, he delivered them into your hand. For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. We have to give our whole heart in order to find You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war.”” Wavering, going back and forth in our walk of faith will keep us at war We have to get to a place where we become strong - high point of strength What do you do in the moments where you need God, know it or not? 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NIV “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” In order to become strong in the areas where we need strength, we shave to neck week first. He wants us to become so weak that we give up, give up and stop trying with our own strength and lean on God’s strength. “God, I give it to you. It’s all Yours.” He’s building our strength to get us to a point where we give up. Yes we’ll fall and that’s the point, we have to humble ourselves and make ourselves low by fighting. Fighting our thoughts, comfort ability and our norm in order to be weak towards God. Like moths, He wants us to keep fighting to reach the light in order to give up our lives.

Sunday Service Without the Holy Spirit there is no revival. Proverbs 29:18 “blessed” - happy, favored, pleased - keeps the law Prophetic vision works for the law not the other way around. Prophetic Vision- word revelation that gives us insight to see where we are and where we need to be. Law is instruction and directions that allow us to go wheee we need to go. Containing rules and principles that enable to help us go where we need to go helps us to achieve the vision “cast off restraints” Restraints lose control and surrenders themselves to influences and activities that prevent us from the vision. It deceives us because it feels right and good. Whatever has purpose has vision and whoever has vision has purpose. God works backwards, He establishes the purpose and carries out the vision. The devil is the helper of our flesh. His mantra is, “do whatever you want to do.” When we do this, we cast off the restraints that were specifically designed for us to keep us 1 Corinthians 14:1-5 “Earnestly desire” - consistently, positively As a church we let this go, we don’t even know what it is. Spiritual gifts go beyond natural limitations, we can’t study it. It’s God exhibiting his power through us. Verse 3 Prophecy - to proclaim and inspire revelation - something that is revealed Prophecy is proclaiming whatever the Spirit says, it can come in any form not just telling of the future. Deuteronomy 29:29 NIV “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.” Prophecy is for people because God wants the church to be built up. Prophetic vision is to encourage one another and strengthen each other. Prophetic vision comes by divine communication - prophecy Prophecy is essential. It is Gods way of proclaiming what He needs to say to the Earth and us as His people. He needs His voice to shake up and strengthen the earth. When we refuse to prophecy, we allow the enemy to prophecy something else to them. We close the door to allow other things to come in. We can’t prophecy unless we desire to, once we do that, we need to ask God for the confidence to prophecy and do so boldly, as he says it. Woman at the well (John 4:1-42) tired used up over it loss of hope When she realized that there was a power beyond herself, she gained a new hope that “maybe”

Psalms 84 “How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God. Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house, ever singing your praise! Selah Blessed are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion. As they go through the Valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; each one appears before God in Zion. O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah Behold our shield, O God; look on the face of your anointed! For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. Mindset. We need to shift our mindset from doing things because we are supposed to be taken into a place where we long for the Lord’s presence; where we have a love for God that makes us desire the Lord. Our intimacy and change for God will increase. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!” Culture - our everyday actions and how we spend our time God wants us to spend time shaping the culture. We haven’t spent time teaching people what to love or how to train the pallets of our tongues so they may be able to value certain things (ex: fasting, consecration, etc.) we need to teach others why each grace is different and teach others how to enjoy the difference between them all. Apart of our goal is going to be growth. We need to pull others to become and remain submitted. We need to teach others how to be discipled so we may be able to disciple. This is foundational work. Finances By the end of next year we have to be in our own place so we may be able to afford to do the things that we have been called to do, without collapsing. We need to be deliberated to do Gods work without bondage giving us apart of our worship to God Fasting has the power to build faith. There are areas in our life where we will always be oppressed until our faith is built. Fasting helps us develop self control and the discipline we need to break addictions and regain focus.

Pastor John - Practice - 06/26/22 When God gives us knowledge, we’re supposed to turn. We’re supposed to take the knowledge and apply it in our lives so we may have the grace to change. When God speaks to us, we need to receive them as if they are his words. We need to be filled with his spirit then submit to one another according to what God said through them. when we refuse to turn, our heart becomes hardened and it’s harder to begin to move in prayer and worship privately and corporately. We’ll begin to live based on what we see and understand; the deception of our heart. When we take God’s word in vain, it’ll be harder to take in God’s word. When we mediate on the words that are spoken intentionally, we will be able to understand how it applies to us. When we preconceive that the words spoken in the body are not for us, then we’ll miss the mark and not be able to receive what was meant to be received. When God reveals something and we don’t deal with it, we will develop wrong understanding that creates strongholds in our life that prevent us from reaching the truth. We won’t find truth because we continue to reject the word. Every word that comes from the body is personal and intentional. It applies to everyone. When we don’t meditate, we won’t understand how it applies to our lives. “God don’t you see me?” God doesn’t respond to that, respond to pitying ourself He doesn’t simply move because we are suffering. Sometimes we have to be in that place and show us that our circumstances shouldn’t be what drives us to seek and search after him. Our circumstance shouldn’t change our perspective on God and how much praise we are willing to give to him. “God I understand that I’m here because … But you are … and for your names sake you …” the way God responds is through repentance and praise. He is eager to help us because he shares in our suffering when we suffer. When we turn and repent, seeing what He can do, we will have a peace through what we’re going through trusting that God is for us. We will be open to be able to receive from God and take heed to the steps that he will give us through our praise and steadfastness. Regardless, we need to see him deserving of our praise despite what’s going on around and inside of us. Colossians 1:9-14 v. 10 “so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,” God’s knowledge that he reveals to us is supposed to allow us to walk in a manner that is pleasing to God. We need to adjust ourselves in order to receive the grace needed to apply the knowledge we’ve been given. We need to allow our knowledge of God to control us. Jesus desires us to bare much fruit. We’re designed to be a light to others. What we do with God’s word reveals where our faith is. We need to respond to what God is showing us ** There are seasons and times that we’ll miss because we refused to do what God was saying and trying to do. We need to grow in our fear of God talking. Fear of what will happen and what will fall through our disobedience. Words: Pastor John There will be times when he needs to go away and be with God. When we needs to be recharged because he’s not in a space to effectively minister to us right now. Turn on your notifications on the BTV app. If you would like to be apart of the event committee, text Pastor John so we can fellowship outside of the church Next week is the beginning of a new series

He’s gone through a lot as a kid already and it’s taught him things that aren’t always of you. There are some situations that have hardened his heart but we pray that you break down the false perceptions and deception the enemy places him in. Remove the chains that he’s bound to and the desires he has a hard time of letting up. Let him have a desire to seek after you and give him a hope through him knowing you and your character.

We come against the stronghold of fear that is gripping her life. Give us wisdom and help us so we may have the patience to be gentle and kind to her so she may be saved. Look on Tim and help him to not become overwhelmed when he’s frustrated. Let him be settled and help him to look to you when he has to make decisions concerning his mom and taking care of her. Let him cling onto the word that you’ve spoken from 25 years ago, that you would always supply. Let him not worry about the bills or how things are going to come to pass, but let him look to you and you alone. Let him get down on his knees and pray prayers of victory that he genuinely believes in. Help us to be mindful of others around us and be ready to witness to others. Let us not become too busy or preoccupied so we may be available. To where when you call we are willing to put everything aside and say “Here I am Lord.” When your spirit presses upon us to reach out to someone, let us not rationalize why we shouldn’t or why it’s not necessary right now. We need your strength to stand, we can’t make it without you. Give us a song of praise as we go throughout our day. Give us a peace that surpasses our understanding. We come against every lie of the enemy because your word is truth. Let us have a purpose in our fasting today, to tear down strongholds and set the captives free. We come against nausea, hunger, headaches and anything that will distract us from your purposes for today. We lift up Mrs Kamilah. Give her the strength that she needs as a mother, a wife and First Lady. It’s taxing on her. Let her look to you when she feels despair and hopelessness. Let you spirit spew up like a well on the inside of her. Let her think on your goodness. Show her how much those around her cares for her. Let the assignment you’ve laid on her feet not be despised by her. Give her the strength she needs today without the thought of what she will go through tomorrow. Have your way inside of her and help her to surrender to you continually. Let a yes come forth from her soul and allow all things be well. Let her have joy. Word of the Day: Mrs. CJ Be vigilant of the attacks of the enemy. His desire is to wear us out. When we are weak is when he will try to attack. *ANNOUNCEMENTS* TODAY Water only fast until 5PM 12pm prayer (checkup/reposture)

1 Peter 3:8-12 “Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech. They must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”” Romans 2:4 “Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?” It is your grace working inside of us that allows us to do all things. Let us receive more of it because we choose to utilize the understanding and knowledge that you allow us to access. We want to see your miracles, signs, wonders and strategies to operate in this world. Let us recognize that you are working in the church and working on us. You are sanctifying us spiritually and trying to touch every area of our lives. Help us to lay down and present ourselves as living sacrifices that are holy and acceptable before you. Renew us in our minds and renew our mental attitude. We’re asking for transformation as we let go of our ways and selfish thoughts and ambitions. There’s areas in our lives that we don’t perceive correctly. Until we put ourselves onto the altar we will not be able to see and understand the right way. Let us not seek our own glory but rather the glory that comes from you. Help us to see clearly the things that you are calling us to do. Give us new eyes to see in the spirit. We want to see those around us beyond where they are right now. Give us a new discernment about our brothers and sisters and wisdom on how to deal with them so we may be one. Receive our sacrifices and prayers. If there’s anything that we’re doing just to do or doing out of religious practices, show us because we want to do things only to your glory and credit. We give you praise this morning. This is a new day, a new day that we allow you to do what you want with. Give us this day our daily bread, a fresh manna from heaven today. We want to be broken before you. The humble and contrite won’t be denied by you. Let us come down from our self and give you praise and admiration for it. You are good. We need to love without condition. A people that aren’t offended by the word. Let us get into a place of unconditional love to where we are broken down, when we are broken we will be able to receive the grace and strength to do so that only comes from you. Help us to let go of our offenses against others so we can love how you love. Give us a love for others that David had for Saul. There was something in his heart to where he would not take vengeance on his own enemies. Let us wait for you and not rejoice in their suffering and downfall. The one that forgives much is the one that loves much. We shouldn’t only love when everything is right. When we forgive constantly, we are an example of how you’ve loved us all of these years. We don’t recognize how many times you’ve spoke and we’ve turned away, when you tried to guide us but we rejected you, and when you tried to accept us but we said no. Many of us are out of line but you’ve called us into fellowship over and over again. Help us to call ourselves and give our sincere love away to those around us. Begin to touch our hearts concerning love and guard our hearts so we may love even though it hurts. We want to have a sincere love through obedience. Enlarge our hearts and make them soft, we become offended and angry too quickly. The same love that you gave us, help us to give it away. We need only to posture ourselves before you and you will answer us because we are choosing to cry out and wait upon you. It’s by your grace that you give us the ability to love. We must be connected to you to receive and give away this capacity of love. It’s by your love that we are recognized as Christians. Having a mind that is renewed in order to love through our transformation will enable us to exercise love. Let us not give with the intent of getting back. We are here because you decided to love us and give us a brand new mercy. You gave it to us as a gift by your own power and grace Love that is “undeserving,” if it’s Gods will, will pull them into repentance and lead them into salvation. Repaying evil with love will bring them to shame because you chose to repay evil with good. Sometimes it will make them reconsider their ways and change for the better. Praise Report: Jeremiah has been coming by to get his mail. The last few times, his whole demeanor was changed. With the note “you are loved” written on his mail, he seemed as though he was back to his old self. He came by his grandmas house to get his mail also and she told Mrs Cj how he looked good and how his attitude had changed. Since Jalen has gotten back, and he was given permission to play basketball and have his phone again, his attitude has been changing. Looking at the situation and how they handled it seemed like “a slap on the wrist” but through their love and forgiveness he’s been changing. It’s small things but I notice them.

In Bible Study Notes
Mr. Charleston 06/19/22 https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qbqZMlY5TAOS_3DCWXak3rwN5bDRgwwexzMroyvS_xY/edit When God saved us, he called us to a purpose. Within that purpose, we are being cleaned up and made to be who he predestined us to be. Ecclesiastes 6:10 Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny. Ecclesiastes 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart, yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. We are one piece in God’s overall plan. Our job is to find what he wants us to do while on earth and max it out to the best of our ability. Example: 2 Timothy 1:9 For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. Our first calling is to come into fellowship with Christ. Through that, God will lead us to find our place in the body. It’s not based on what we can do, it’s based on what he is able to do from inside of us. He wants a people who depend solely on his purpose and ability and not our own. What does the fellowship look like? What should be the fruit of it? We are meant to be renewed in our minds. A Christian that has taken on salvation begins to become intimate with him. He is pulling us into this relationship with him by grace and mercy. We receive this grace by faith and we begin to desire to read and pray and receive the knowledge of God. We begin to desire and crave him until he begins to reveal himself to us. “Desire” We struggle to get into a place where we are hungry for God. To where we dedicate alone time for him until we see it/until we hear his voice. It’s hard to break away from the tools of life and society to where we do things we know we are supposed to do because it’s good for us. When we experience his goodness, it will give us a craving and desire to where we are hungry for more of ____. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus. Romans 12:1-2 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect When we get into fellowship with God and present our mind and body unto him, he will renew our minds. Taking our minds from carnality to the spirit; the way he thinks and judges. John 5:30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me. We put our bodies on the altar so God can do what he wants to do through us. How do we find our place? Put ourselves onto the altar. We get to a place where we surrender ourselves completely unto God, the way that Jesus did. Philippians 2:7-8 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. John 5:30 I can do nothing on my own. I judge as God tells me. Therefore, my judgment is just, because I carry out the will of the one who sent me, not my own will John 12:49 I don’t speak on my own authority. The Father who sent me has commanded me what to say and how to say it. John 5:19 So Jesus explained, “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself. He does only what he sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does. He centered his whole life's mission on what God was saying at that time. He did nothing on his own outside of the Lord’s will. We need to be so in-depth with God that we are not of our own. Accept salvation, be saved Enter into fellowship with God. Humble ourselves. As we humble ourselves as Jesus did, God will supply all we need to seek him in a way that produces results. What God is going to do for us is something that shouldn’t be boasted about for our own glory. Questions: How specific do we think honing into our purpose should be? For us to do what we do, it needs to be through the grace of God. Matthew 25:14-30 - Parable of the Talent when they utilized the grace that was given, it birthed out other areas they had the ability to act upon If we use what God has given us right now, it’s meant to birth more. I'm a teacher, so now I'm writing books and going to school to become a teacher. It’s a multiplication of what God has given us. What do you do to increase your hunger? Romans 8:3-7 The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. 4 He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit. 5 Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 6 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. 7 For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. We need to exercise the mind. If we’re in the midst of something and God is calling us to do something else, we will receive more grace to remain in the place he is calling us to if we make the decision to submit. He wants us to trust him enough to exercise our minds on him the same way we exercise our minds on gratifying ourselves. He wants us to learn from him by putting his words to the test. We will be able to discern his will and follow the grace of God when he beckons us to walk this way. Sometimes we can have a muscle that we can’t activate or feel. When we are weak, we don’t have a lot of control. The more we work on and isolate those areas the more we will be able to activate and engage those areas. We will be able to discern that the muscle is there. In the Spirit, when we exercise the muscle (ex: love), we will be tested in that way so love can grow. We will need to submit to God to be filled with the wisdom on how to be disciplined to push ourselves to activate that muscle and endure when it hurts. When it hurts, we have to push a little longer to tone up and make firm what we’re doing all of this work to volumize. Luke 7:75-80 (John the Baptist speaking about his calling before he was birthed into the world) in holiness and righteousness for as long as we live. in holiness and righteousness for as long as we live. “And you, my little son, will be called the prophet of the Most High, because you will prepare the way for the Lord. You will tell his people how to find salvation through the forgiveness of their sins. This talks about what he would do, why, and God’s mindset behind calling him to do so. When God gives us what we were made to do, we can be like John to where what we would be is revealed before we are born. For some, through our duration of fellowshipping with God, what we will become will be revealed as we walk with him. Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace.” John grew up and became strong in spirit. To become strong, we have to go through seasons of testing. Testing our ability to receive the knowledge, character, and grace of God. When we receive his knowledge, letting God renew our minds, we will be tested in the areas where we have surrendered completely. God wants our hearts to be turned to him so we will be steadfast, unmovable, and stable so we will grow from place to place through our dependency upon God. 2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image. In order for us to move accordingly, we need to know what season we’re in. How do we know what season we are in? (1 Peter 1) The fire that we are put into, is burning the mut from inside of us to purify us. We fail because we remain in the same place and mindset during the trial. If we dedicated ourselves to setting our minds on the trial and turning our focus up higher as he turns up the magnitude, we will stray away from emotions and rely on the spirit. He wants us to be stable through what he’s saying. He wants us to fully trust in our hearts 1 Peter 1:21 Through Christ, you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory. and not just be compliant. It’s one thing to do what your parents say, and it’s another to agree and be convinced that what they're telling you to do will accomplish what they’re saying it will. There’s a difference between simply respecting one’s authority and respecting someone for their character, morals, and actions. The only way for our hearts to be changed is through repetition, mediation and when we’re taking his words into our trials and seeing it all the way through until our hearts are changed. And he lived in the wilderness until he began his public ministry to Israel. Matthew 4:17 He was ready for public ministry because he went through the season of fasting and learning about God. We will reach a point of reaching stability by going through a deeper level of faith. Luke 1:80 Everything was centered by the leading of the Lord. in order for us to receive the public ministry, we will need to go through our seasons the way Jesus and John the Baptist did. The work of sanctification is a lifelong thing. There are pivotal points where God will prepare us for graduation. He will make us fit for the master’s use. He will continue to season us until we are ready for another level. We are ready when we win repetitively until our heart is established enough to go into a new level. The man that wins souls is wise. It’s intricate to deal with someone who doesn't know Christ. We have to discern that person in and out. The personal life that we live with God is a step to be able to discern others while touching on the topics that God wants us to learn in him. Do we ever graduate? Do we have to just keep fighting through it? Graduating is where a test is no longer a test in the same area. We have overcome one thing with new knowledge and skills that will allow us to advance into the next grade. Everything we do is a pre-progression to the next step. Each grade has a set of new tests and temptations that will test our faith but allow us to move beyond what others will fall from. We never stop progressing. As we go after a set weight for a while, when we go back to the same weight it will be nothing to us. We are now able to reach a new weight that we struggle with, but because we’ve made it this far, we have faith that we will overcome it again. As one, we may go into the gym with our arm hurting, and the leg will have to compensate for the hurt the arm is feeling. As the body learns how to compensate for what’s not there, the arm will heal and become stronger. In the midst of our suffering, we’ll begin to enjoy going through those trials because we enjoy how we feel when it’s done. The joy of our transformation allows us to fall in love with the idea that God chose to cleanse us into a place where we will be useful to him. We need to understand the tactics of the enemy because he wants to prevent us from making it to the next grade. He uses our minds to prevent us from being enlightened and he rationalizes us from doing what God is telling us to do. We shouldn't shun prophecy. We should center our lives upon the calling that God has called us to be. We need to be intentional about the weakness we will have that will hinder where God has predestined for us to walk in. Romans 12:1-2 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. when we don’t know our calling, we need to center our minds on God so he may reveal to us how all of the things he’s been telling us to do joins together for the bigger picture. Has anyone’s calling been actualized since being in the body? What has been discovered leads us to commit to what is being said and take time to hear what God is saying. We will be able to learn and understand for ourselves and gain further knowledge that wouldn’t have been received from the surface layer of the prophecy simply being said. The body is meant to teach you your place inside of the body. As we obey, he will put us into place without us trying to force ourselves into certain areas based solely on our ability and not what God is able to do through us. Romans 4:19-24 And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead—and so was Sarah’s womb. Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this, he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced He grew strong in his faith, being fully convinced of what God says is true. Eve fell because she wasn’t fully convinced that God had said the things he said. that God is able to do whatever he promises. And because of Abraham’s faith, God counted him as righteous. And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. Are you fully convinced? An army defends the nations. We need to get the revelation that God is really the Lord of Heaven’s army, he will be faithful to defend his word, his truth, and us from the attacks of the enemy. We are more than conquerors through him who gives us strength. He won't allow us to fail or be defeated. The enemy bombards us through lies and mind games. We need to allow God’s word to work in our life. The word study group: God is bigger than what we fear. Understanding how big God is to us will allow us to have a new perspective of the things we view as big. The humps before us and the enemies that lay waiting for us are as dust on the scale; easily blown away. Love conquers all and covers a multitude of sins. When God gives us faith, it doesn’t matter the current situation. We will be tested to where we have nothing else to hold onto but his word.

In Prayer Summary
There’s pain and hurt that are within the women this morning. Give them the strength they need to endure and to hold on. You are the one that is going to draw and bring their children back. They want a new bond and relationship with their children. Show them how to l bring them back. Put people in their lives to bring their children to the right path. Let them trust in you and give their children away to you. Strengthen them and as they cry out show them how to love on their children. Love and kindness draws them in, sometimes love needs to be from a far, but help them to love them anyway. Bless this day. Show the women how to mother and discipline their children so they may learn. It’s hard right now to raise children. The children are running the homes in this generation. If we can’t discipline them now, how much harder will it be when they get older. It’s tiring sometimes, but let them remember who their help comes from. When they get older, they may go astray, but based on the principles that have been taught when they were younger they will never forget right and wrong and how to live in you. Bring back their laughs and their smiles they once had when their children were younger. Let them trust that you will do exactly what you said. These women didn’t decide to go their own way, they made the decision to serve you. There is no good thing that you will withhold from them. Their desire is that their children may be saved. They are trusting and believing in you to do so. Thank you for the foundation that you have been building on your truth and word. What would we do without you? Thank you for this moment to come together and lift up our church, children and family. Thank you for the countless opportunities we have to ask you to take care. These are examples of your goodness, we have opportunities to come to you for help. Thank you for hearing our prayers. For your sake, we believe that everyone should be whole. The one way to be filled is through salvation and coming to you. Thank you for being our friend that is dependable and able to handle the weight we carry. Bring out whatever needs to be prayed for in our hearts. We’re listening for you to put prayers on our lips that will break chains. You are the leader and we are the tail. We lift up the pastor this morning and Mrs Kamilah. Touch them in your name and have your way. Be with those who are sick and hurting. Touch their bodies and give them a new strength.

We pray for them this morning. Open his mouth and allow him to cry out to you, open his ears and make your voice clear, and open his heart that it may be changed. Open up Ms Keanna’s heart, break every stronghold that has been keeping them in prison. Cast it down and set them free from the bondage that comes from the thoughts and lies the enemy speaks to them. We come against the oppression of the enemy over their lives. He has a will for them and they can’t see it. We plead your blood on their behalf because we know that you are able to do it. You subdue kings and principalities in the highest places. Every thought that exalts itself against you, we come against. Silence the voice of the enemy and allow them to hear you clearly so they may be brought to you. Let them submit and surrender to your power, rule and authority. Have mercy on them and set them free through their “yes.” We know that you can do all things. We trust you and we need you Lord. You are the true living God that reigns on our behalf. You send your angels to help and cover us daily. We don’t know the darts and bullets you take for us every single day, we only see the ones that personally effect us.

Let us know you and develop a transparent relationship with you. Let us be so close to you that you reveal things that others don’t know of. Set the captives free that they may be set free from the yoke that’s been binding them. You came to set them free, that’s why you died for us so we may have an opportunity to accept you and deliver us. There is nothing that’s too hard for you. Your Son was anointed and chosen to set the captives free, recover the sight of the blind and spread the good news. You draw and save us, you deliver us and set us free. We thank you for your healing power. We thank you for being our deliverer. We choose to surrender our lives to you, show us how to do so completely to where every aspect and area of our lives are subdued unto you. Help us to keep our eyes on you. Let us not be moved by the things that we see but move through faith, trusting in you. We look to the heavens where our help comes from and we focus on you when the storms gets too much for us.

Have we left your presence? Let us be able to recognize when you are not with us and go back to you. We come to you and lift up Rose. Draw her nearer to you and break the barriers of fear. The fear that comes with community and becoming closer to you. Draw her heart and reveal her purpose to you as she stays close to the body.

Heal them so they may recognize their salvation and see it as an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. Take away the things that don’t look like you and remove the fear and judgement that comes from community. The purpose of our community is to go deeper in you and receive the goodness in your word. Keep your children closer to you. Send a word to them and give the person the strength they need to deliver your goodness. Unbind them this morning and set them free. You said if we are set free in you then we are free indeed. Have your way and let your perfect will be done. Word of the Day: Mrs. CJ It’s important to listen to the voice of God because we never know how much of an impact we will have on them by doing God’s work. The enemy uses tactics and oppression to force his will on us. He rationalizes against what God is telling us to do and we give in. We need to pray for God’s mercy. It’s his Spirit that does the work and transforms lives, we need only to be obedient and he will have his way. *ANNOUNCEMENT* SUNDAY Service via ZOOM - Bible study link @10:30am

In Prayer Summary
Psalm 34 Philippians 2 We lift up the spirit of love this morning. Understanding is found in love. We can’t forgive without a heart that’s filled with your love. Allow your love to rescue us. We have so many things to be grateful for, there is so much abundance that we overlook daily. We repent for overlooking the abundance that already exists. Let us look into your word so we may recognize what you do. We don’t have to look anywhere beyond your word that speaks purposely of your abundance and goodness. Prophecy spoken to us is abundance, it tells us what to expect and speaks of truth, regardless of if we want to hear it or not. There are so many elements in our lives that you have an opportunity to pour out your abundance. It gives peace, joy and happiness that we don’t understand. You give us abundant life. We thank you for the possibilities that exist for our lives. We have no idea what you are going to do. You are going to do things ears haven’t heard nor eyes have seen. Let us be faithful as we wait for what you are going to do. Continue to push after us so we may live by faith that allows us to experience your plan. Our walk with you is blind and is also an experience. You know what’s right so we pour out ourselves to you. Fill us up and guide our steps and our thoughts. We are empty vessels for you, we come to you completely vulnerable. We close our eyes and ask that you give us our vision. Let us see only what you want us to see. We lay our bodies limp before you. You control our bodies, you control how and where we go and move. We set our minds back and take the volume to the lowest setting so you may be the guide of our thoughts. You lead us, rise up and take control. Take our bodies as pleasing sacrifices and do as you will with them. We withhold nothing from you, have your way. Show us the areas where we are still high and mighty, where we refuse to reveal the dirt in the crevices simply because they’re not visible by the naked eye. You aren’t limited to what we see and reveal, we can’t fool you. Take our hands and lead us where you wish for us to go. The path is invisible to us on the spiritual spectrum beyond the naked eye. If you see the path, then that’s all the faith we should need because you will never lead us the wrong way. Thank you for being that true and real. Let us know you so we may know that you won’t lead us astray, you won’t lead us down the wrong path, and you will take care of us if we believe. Let us choose to put our faith in you. Heal what’s broken and haven’t been dealt with but swept under the rug and pushed to the back of the room. You will give us all we need, we need only to have faith and believe. The abundance we seek and are meant to have will be received if we believe whole heartedly in you and the truth in your word. We sit low in humility before you this morning so we may be sheep that are able to be led. We believe and trust you. Let your words be a pleasing sound in our ears. Let us hold onto what you say and your promises. Let us not take lightly the ability to here you. Forgive us for not taking heed or honoring your words. Let us not reject what you’re saying or fight against you, we choose to surrender all and give you our “yes.” Let there be no rejection to your words and truth. There’s joy and peace in our “yes.” *ANNOUNCEMENTS* TODAY Bible Study via Zoom @6:30-7:30PM

In Prayer Summary
We are aware that there needs to be another level of grace that comes from you and awareness of who you are. Another level of depths of recognizing that if we ask and wait you will deliver. Let us believe upon your faithfulness; your ability to act on behalf of those that fear. Let us go to another place in our prayers that we may speak with confidence of you. You’ve called us to go to a place where we can begin to take the deal of you promised land but we need to build our confidence in you through knowing more of you and your works. Bring us into a place of awareness of you. Begin to deal with the strongholds of our minds. The intricate areas of our minds that we block in our hearts. Free our hearts so we may be able to repent and deal with the things that are going on in our hearts. Let us show humility and dependency that unlocks a new grace that depends on your lordship. We praise you because of the grace that has been attained through our faith and belief in you. Let us work on one accord to seek your glory and presence. You only came to do the will of your father. Bring that grace into us to where we seek you alone and not our cares, self gratification or desires. Begin to renew our minds as we submit wholeheartedly to your lordship. Let us begin to see the transformation that you have intended for us. Remove the confusion of words that has happened in the hearts. Alleviate those thoughts and make them subject to truth alone. Bring us to a place of subjection to your word and spirit. We want your glory and honor and to be satisfied with you alone. We live on your credit and grace, the will and ability to do is by your grace working in us. You give it to those that are humble and want to give themselves to you. We will be able to hear your voice and be taught by you alone like your disciples before. You died that we may have a one on one relationship with you. Help us to receive it. Because you’ve called us, let us accept and experience the fruit that comes from the change that will be brought forth in our life. Make us vessels of honor that can be used in every area in our lives. We desire to be light in the darkness of the world, whose systems are against you. You will only give your grace to those who are humble and without a contrast heart. When we’re walking in pride and our own conceit, break us so we may realize that we can only do things through your grace. Your spirit of wisdom, understanding, might, knowledge and fear of the Lord is what you’ve died for us to receive when we obey you and walk in your ways. You don’t judge by appearance or make decisions by hear say. There’s a doctrine in your word that you want us to settle ourselves upon. It’s the same life that Jesus lived and worked through. By receiving you, you will begin a process of becoming like Christ in the earth under your credibility. Let us receive the same spirit of wisdom, might, counsel and understanding. Let us not judge by appearance or what we see when we’re placed in situations. Let us be grounded and settled by truth and truth alone. Help us to recognize when we’re praying and not receiving, when we’re praying and spinning our wills in the thread machine. Let our hearts be molded into the image of Jesus Christ. If we harbor iniquity and do not live according to what you want, it’s easy to fall into religion and living to living and simply coping with life instead of handling the issues that resound inside of it. You are able to do all things, let us have faith and remain grounded through that. Let us recognize that you are God and our only job is to be dependent on you. Let us recognize when we’re off course and falling into religion. When we ask you, let us believe that you will keep us daily and pour a new grace that is for the battles in this given day. Give us today our daily bread God. We’re asking you for it, knowing that we can’t do it alone. We need your nourishment every day. We’re not conditioned in seeking you to receive your grace daily. You want us to move forward and be dependent on you and your lordship. We want your right way, we need your right way. Let us have a desire to follow the two leaders you’ve put before us. Create pastor John to be a leader that guides us, and Mrs Kamilah to be a support for her husband. We give you praise, glory and honor this morning because you’re going to do exactly what you say. Let us seek you and pray to you so we may receive. Let us recognize that it’s an experience to be in a place before speaking to you and receiving when it’s finished. You give when we pray, you give strength when we pray. Let us not confuse the power and renewing that happens when we pray. We need to know you to fellowship with you. Let us be satisfied with having a relationship with you that can’t be changed by outside attacks. We will seek you to be satisfied with you. If we delight ourselves with you, lay down and find our leisure with you, you will give us the desires of our hearts. You are the foundation and our hope for today and tomorrow. We’ve tried to replace you with different things but only you can satisfy. We’ve searched but it turned out to be “meaningless.” We will find you if we seek you with all of our hearts and we completely give our will to you. Having a relationship with you continually reveals the hidden things and brings us into greater knowledge of you. You are calling your people, let us not receive it in vain. Your purpose is that your people may receive your light in the dark places. He wants to pour out his spirit unto us so a sure work can be brought forth in the world. Do not receive the grace of God in vain, whatever he is calling you to do, we need to be obedient to do it. Through this, he will cause us to experience him and we’ll know it for sure. He wants us to know him and him alone. He wants us to know him for ourself through our own personal intimacy with him. We don’t know you the way you want us to know you. You’ve sent us your word to take ahold of. Forgive us for our way of thinking. You don’t want us to repent for the actions but the thoughts and mindsets that preceded the action. You want us to flourish through our relationship with you. Let us receive by you through prayer and worship and genuine intimacy with you to where you become our delight. Words of the Day: 1.) Pastor John The goal that God wants us to get to is to where our hearts say the same things he does and we produce the same judgements he formulates. He wants us to think about ourselves the same way he sees us. He wants us to filter our judgements through what he is saying. We need to reevaluate our conclusions and determine whether it was by our spiritual eyes or carnal minds. We have to consume enough of his word (Bible) so we’ll be able to know him and praise him in a different way. God is for us. Sometimes it feels like we’re alone, but he’s invested in us. He wants us to produce good fruit and he’s devoted in caring for and coaching us to be able to produce the fruit he desires. Where have I not turned to you? I want to turn so I can bare fruit. (confirmation: Mrs. CJ) To bear much fruit, we need to prune and cut off the areas that aren’t producing. The areas that are being cut off don’t feel good, but it’s for our good. We need to say yes, submit and surrender to what he’s saying. When we resist, we are fighting against God, the one who created us and wants the best for us. He corrects and builds those he cares about. When we resist we will always fail. Don’t fight against what he’s made you to be. (confirmation: Mr. Charleston) we get into a place of self satisfaction, but he wants us to be humble before him in that area. As long as we try to keep our ways in this world, we’ll never be truly satisfied because we are holding onto thorns and bushels. Submit to what he’s calling you to. 2.) Mr. Charleston Don’t allow things to fester. Handle situations quickly so it doesn’t multiply and create conspiracies that are grasped from the air. 3.) Mrs. Tracy Everything that was said is a by product of knowing him. In order for us to really know him, we need to be able to spend time with him. Know comes from knowledge and knowledge is awareness and familiarity. We need to be completely aware of what he’s saying at all given times. Our accuracy will give us a by product of receiving our desire, walking through freedom and walking in the things he’s called us. We’re not walking in those things because we still lack the ability to know him in his word. The more we know, the more we’ll experience what has been spoken prior.

Prayer for the Day: (1) Mrs Teasha We thank you for what you’ve done for us. For laying down your life and dying for our sins. You died for me. You died that I may live. Let us take that personally today as we remember what you’ve done for us. Help us to heal from the holes that have been created from the things we’ve experienced over the years. Let our hearts be soft and remove the shells that enclose them. Take our hearts so we can love anyone at anytime. You went to the lowest of communities and healed them. You can take and heal anyone. Jesus showed us the power of your Spirit and that our flesh can be controlled. Help us to control our flesh as we learn how to control our hearts. Help us to give our hearts to you this morning so our situations can have a new perspective and our intentions may be changed. Cover all of us. Be with us so our spirits may not be moved, lies not be told and someone’s burdens doesn’t overwhelm them today. Take our hearts and transform them. Shape them to do all that you want them to do. Take our hearts so you can fix our minds and renew them. Help us to be willing to fulfill the work that you want us to. Let our hearts collaborate on your behalf. We thank you Lord. Your name is high and mighty. (2) Mrs. Tracy We praise you this morning. We agree with every prayer that has gone forth. Thank you for grabbing hold of our hearts. Let us be responsive and not reactive. Let us examine ourselves daily to evaluate how much closer we are to you. How much more are we experiencing your presence today. Let conviction take place when we are led to do anything that’s not of you. Let us call on the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us on what to do next. Let us take our own advice. It’s easy to recommend but not follow. Let us have self reflection with you so you can reside in us daily. Remove the things that are hindering us from seeing ourselves. The goal is to mirror you until it becomes an unintentional lifestyle. Your goal is to bring your people back to your kingdom and they will see it through our demonstration. We need an extra dose of you and your fruits today. Have your way. Let us keep doing your work as the main goal. Fulfilling our assignment and using our resources to produce fruit. Let us be reliant on your goodness and on you. We can’t do anything without you, life isn’t the same. Let us sit down and have real conversations so we can hear you. Let us know that you hear us, that you are willing to give us guidance and have intimate conversations. Let us be still so we may hear what you have to say. Let your words be carved into our hearts and minds; let it marinate day and night. Let us embrace what you’ve called us to do and be. We don’t know the outcome of who we’re supposed to look like and be but you tell us to anchor ourselves in you because you are our solid ground. Chisel away the things that aren’t meant to be there. Help us to get to the root cause of our issues. There’s going to be things that we don’t like and things that we’re going to need to chisel down but you know how to get out attention in order to shift us into the next level that you’re trying to take us. You know what we need because you are our Father. Let us come to you and confess and repent and bring everything to you. Let us sit down with you today. Show us how to do that. Mrs. Tracy Calm her spirit. She knows how to give grace and compassion based on what she’s going through. Give her the patience so she responds and not reacts. Being responsive with grace and compassion makes her feel like she’s being walked over. It’s no one else’s responsibility but yours. She lays her burdens and thoughts to you today. She’s laying down her will for yours, her perspective for yours. Let what she sees be through your lenses. Give her strategies and actionable steps she can use in all times. Help her to anchor herself in you and trust a whole lot more, believe a whole lot more and make decisions that need to be made. Keep praise on her lips and allow her to see the transformation of her life every time she looks in the mirror. Keep her willing to go through the process with you. Let her be more and more like you and less and less of herself. She’s willing to go through that process of becoming the woman of God you’ve created her to be. Don’t leave her but grab her hand and walk with her. Have your way inside of her. Children There’s so much going on. Cover them Mentoring session The girls may be met where they are. We’ll be able to receive, pour out and be vulnerable while keeping healthy boundaries. Let the women show up for the girls the way you’ve showed up for them. Words of the Day: (1) Pastor John Prayer is something that’s right now. When we pray we should instantly feel full. When we eat and it doesn’t do something to our stomach we need to question the type of food and the amount of it. When we pray something happens to us, when we worship we get spiritual food. We need to be focused and allow him to saturate our hearts and give our hearts what we need for the day. (2) Mrs. Kamilah We focus so much on loving others that we neglect loving ourselves. We’re trying to love our neighbor but we’re not loving ourself the way that we’re supposed to. We’re supposed to be changing and evolving constantly. We need to learn how to love the person we’re becoming, the version of ourselves that is being developed that we are uncomfortable with now. The doctor is able to love on the patient in-spite of. The doctor’s job is to love because they don’t understand what the patient is going through mentally and spiritually. When we love ourselves while we’re trying to love others we will operate through love.

In Bible Study Notes
Mr. Charleston Words: God is calling the church into a deep place outside of self and fear. It’s a place that he wants people to have deep transformations. We will not just be passing, God wants us to be sanctified through the work of the Spirit. He will deal with and clean us up to do his work. “to whom much is given, more will be required.” To the capacity of the word we are given, we need to apply those principles into our lives. Ms. Stephanie: The church has been very superficial and religious. We have the tendency to want the church to look a certain way without humility and submission to God so we may be shifted into a place that brings us into the transition we desire. We need to be still to see and receive the salvation of the Lord. When we’re not still in order to mediators and hear from God, we will be going through the motions of life. We often times lose heart when we lack faith and hope. God is more faithful than what we see We need to be a people that is loyal to the Lord and isn’t moved by everything that comes at us. God wants us to seek him until we find him God wants us to come into a place where when we come into his presence we are focused. To let go of everything outside of him and refocus ourselves to only think on him. When we come into his courts we should praise because we’re shifting our Hebrews 11:1-6 “Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.” we believe God is real, but we lack faith in his ability to do. We need to believe that he will impart into us the faith that we need to look to him and ask him for all things. we need to start looking at God as a person and less of a doctrine our first faith is believing that God had entered into our hearts. We believe Jesus is Lord and that he is coming back again, but we need to believe in what he says. We don’t always believe because we don’t have a desire to see, touch and hear him. Through touching him we will be connected with his presence outside of doctrine. Outside of simply knowing his word. with faith there is a focus on the unseen only As we seek God more, he will put us onto a course of what’s required of us in order to get closer aligned to his will for us. The focus has to be on him that we may know what he wants us to do in our lives. Not believing God is a sin, fear is not believing God; what he says and who he is. without faith, it’s impossible to please God “Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation. Commendation - to confirm one has heard or experienced something. To be taught by divine or expert revelation Through commendation, God qualifies us for growth. He enables us to see things beyond what we have seen and our faith allows us to walk in it. his word is a privilege, not everyone has the words that we receive When… God gives us faith We walk in it We will experience the presence of God. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen. It was by faith that Abel brought a more acceptable offering to God than Cain did. Abel’s offering gave evidence that he was a righteous man, and God showed his approval of his gifts. Although Abel is long dead, he still speaks to us by his example of faith. It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying—“he disappeared, because God took him.” For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God. And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” ‭ God wants us to get into a place that we give him the fruit of repentance. Our faith should be able to cause us to stand. This is the victory that allows us to overcome the word. Our faith should make us able to have mental stability. he wants submission and for people to effectively utilize the grace that we possess. He wants submission under the leadership he has established. There’s wisdom that is needed to deal with a leader. Psalm 26:1-3 “Declare me innocent, O Lord, for I have acted with integrity; I have trusted in the Lord without wavering. he hasn’t wavered regardless of what was being thrown at him and the time that it takes for God to do what we’ve been praying about Put me on trial, validate me, prove me Lord, and cross-examine me. Test my motives and my heart. For I am always aware of your unfailing love, Gods character and I have lived according to your truth.” everything we do needs to be for the glory of the Lord. We don’t love because we know that God is working it out. We don’t doubt because we believe God is remaining faithful. Isaiah 64:4 NLT “For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him!” through all we do, we have to remain steadfast and loyal. We don’t have what we should have because we don’t keep our faith and wait. We didn’t remain loyal through our patient season that required us to wait. ‭

Prayer: 06/13/22 Whatever needs to be done for our ministry to be eye to eye and on one accord, we thank you in advance for what you’re going to do. Help us to see the importance of ministry and what you’re doing in our lives for everyone’s benefit. Be the one that fills the void in our hearts. Give us the heart to seek you, to refocus and stay before you. Let you get the glory through everything at this time. Let us rehear the call and hear your voice all over again. Help us and be all that we need. We lift up Pastor John and Kamilah Cable, we lift them up before you. Don’t let her shut down and reject the desire to rebuild. We come against the enemy that plays lies and mind games in her heart and mind. We come against his deception, we ask that they are able to see what the enemy is doing in their lives. His goal is to destroy the church. The gates of hell will not prevail against them and their marriage. We need a mentor for our pastor and First Lady. When they come, let them receive it as a gift from you and not reject it. Let them be equipped for the work of your people so they may reach and help us. Weeping may endure for a night but we’re looking for the joy that is promised in the morning. Restore their communication. We hold up his arms for the battle when he gets tired and weary. Strengthen Mrs. Kamilah for all that she needs to do. She fears of the ministry is weighing on her and her husband. The enemy is attacking them and allowing them to cling to conspiracies, but while they’re going through this testing give them strength and wisdom. Let them not be in fear of what you’re saying or resentful from trying to move forward. Let it be well with their soul regardless of the circumstance. Restore, heal and mend their brokenness personally, that is affecting them corporately. They’re meant to be one but they’re separating. We come to you this morning seeking direction and understanding. In order to receive those things, we have to want and desire them. We have to be willing to follow the direction you’ve set before us to revive those things. It’s a constant fight to get closer to you, because the closer we get the harder the enemy works against us. Strengthen us individually and as a family. Open up our hearts to receive what you’re telling us right now. We here so much negativity and grasp them, and we struggle with holding onto the positivity that you bring. Break that struggle and bind us together with love as glue. Give us understanding because these are trying and testing times. There’s been so much tragedy and disappointment that has been coming against us and we’re tired. Let us eat for our strength because we’re going to need it. Bring us the bread and water we need so we will be prepared for the fight ahead. We’ve gone back because we need to regroup. When we come back to regroup, let us come back together through love and a new willingness. We’ve grown accustomed to attending a church but you’re raising us to be the church. Prepare us for the battle and sharpen our tools so we will be ready. Send the help that’s needed. Sustain us. We come against the enemy’s deception and games he plays in our minds. We rebuke you, Satan, and your works. We say yes to your will, God, and to your way. Allow that yes be kept in our hearts regardless of what you tear down and build up. Have your way God. You are the strength of our lives, our firm foundation and the ground we can stand upon. Our foot will not slip because you are firm and sure. Blessed be your name, you are our King and Father and our Lord and Savior. We are vessels in your hands, we belong to you. Let us not try to direct your steps or your ideas of creation. The pottery can’t say to the potter what to make. Help us to stand and be grounded. You can only make us stand firm if our faith remains firm. When we doubt we fall. When we believe we stand. WORDS OF THE DAY: 1.) Mrs. Tracy Travis Greene - Intentional He is international and never failing. We need to realize in this season that he never fails, though he has delayed some things and turned his face so the fire may be renewed and we may develop a new heart for him, he has never been unfaithful. Even in the times where it looked and felt like a mess, we need to hold onto the fact that he’s never failing in all areas. There’s nothing too big, too small, or too heavy for him to carry and work through. We need to meditate on his word day and night so we will be able to see and experience him in all areas of our life. 2.) Ms. Stephanie There’s a deep grieving in the Holy Spirit in regards to this ministry. The focus is off and we have become side tracked. We need to refocus and reset ourselves. The enemy is purposely trying to cause discord so we won’t be able to do the Lord’s work. We need to have one mind to seek, search and please him. There’s been a lot of selfish desires and self pleasing that has been going forth. There’s some unforgiveness that’s resounding in the church. We’ve been viewing one another wrong and it’s causing us to be unfruitful in the ministry. Let us reposition ourselves to do his work. We have to stop grieving the Holy Spirit. Soften everyone’s heart on this call, and outside, so the walls we have put up will be broken. Give us a heart that is mendable and able to be reshaped. THANK YOU REPORT: 1.) Mrs Tracy Thank you for those who have been keeping the Youngston family lifted up. The external things doesn’t shake me. When it has everything to do with my home and the people that stay in the four corners of my home it completely throws me off. My husband has had a completely different language and he’s at a place where he’s tired of always having control. He’s willing to have God lead his life. I’m grateful for that and God has even dealing and talking to him about order and restructuring our home. He says thank you for the support that has been shown and for allowing him to feel apart of the body without being physically there. 2.) Mrs. CJ Thank you for giving us a heart of prayer. Praying always without ceasing and waiting with expectation for him to move. She’s thankful for those who joined the call this morning without an announcement; joined through following the Spirit.

Show us the areas where we don’t seek you and have been doing nothing with the seeds that have been piling up in our hearts. We’ve been hard headed but we have the audacity to bring every desire to you. We can’t receive if we don’t move. You have allowed us to possess so many benefits despite us rejecting you. If you do nothing else we can still say that you’ve been good, have still been more than enough. You are still wonderful, righteous, holy and perfect in all of your ways. Who of us can battle with your works? We can’t even comprehend the majority of your works. We humble ourselves before you today. The saints that are struggling with their belief of what you can do, give them the grace they need to believe. Show them how many times you have paved the way and been there in their lives. Mike Jacoya Clemika Anika Mitchelle Tremaine Tyron If we lose our lives we will find it. They are struggling with their battles and the idea of fully submitting to you. Show them glimpses, signs and visions as to what you will do. Show them that you do hear. They need your milk and extra care because they are babies.

Let our hearts be so connected to you that we are not bound by human limitations. Let us get a little bit more but work to receive it. Work to maintain it so we may be able to do your work and be the light and song in the darkness. We don’t want to be lukewarm and stagnant Christians. Let our works be great in your sight, not just our words. You’ve given us everything we need, what more do we need? You’ve planted the garden and supplied it. It’s our turn to produce right fruit and follow your voice. Let us be able to lose whole days and nights being before your presence. Let us lose track of time before you. Let us lose ourselves in you. The time is coming when no one will worship here and there, it will be by spirit and in truth that will remain. Let us become true worshippers that read your word and allow it to burn inside of us. Let us see more of you revealed inside of us. Help us to worship the God we see and interact with. Let us not get comfortable with lip service and shallow praise. As we see your wonders, give us a new song because we know you in a different way. Let us worship the God that moves mountains for us and gives us true rest. Let us find you for ourselves and worship you for ourselves. Let us hold onto the God we have found and share you with someone else. Let our testimony bring people into you. Let us talk to you like you are here with us. We want to be springs of you and know what it’s like to be truly connected to the vine. We love you and we know you are always working. Open our eyes to the works you are doing right in front of us. Let our ears, hearts and eyes be so open to see past what’s in the natural world. Words of the Day: BB we need to be the ones that change Teasha Church Spaces - christians are being forced into business by God to change the way we view money and prosperity. So many people are chasing the hustle and trying to get rich, but having people being built up in Christ will change the game. God is touching a lot of different lives in very meaningful ways. We are not alone. As a Christian, we aren’t at a deficit, we already have more than everyone else. We have to think about all things as an increase with the power of God. Pastor John Ministry isn’t just in the pull pit. Leadership is critical in this time.

Let your will be done. Things come to shake us but they can’t break us. There’s been a shaking in this world but we will see who comes out victorious. It’s only you God that will bring us through. We’re praying and trusting in you. Open the doors that have been shut in our faces, make a way. Bring the Youngston and madden family through. Break down all the confusion. We come to you believing you and your ways, promises and actions. Hear our prayers, prayers of the righteous. Touch every one of us on the line with whatever we’re going through. Bring the wavering children back to you. Let us see the love that others showed to us because we’ve never been unloved. Lead our feet back to you and your path. Let us be rejected in every other direction we follow until we finally come home. Touch BB as she goes to her appointment this morning. Let them see and understand what’s going on when she goes today. Give her peace even in the midst. Peace knowing that you are the creator. Look on her nieces and children, her sister and her husband. There’s so much going on, beyond what we can bare, but show us how to trust you to be loved. We thank you for everything that has been spoken. Give us strength for this day and journey. This day is given to you in order that you may do what you will within it. Let us not preconceive but commit ourselves to you so we may be established. Help us to be reestablished in your grace and truth. Let us live for your glory and honor alone. If we are people that live the way we want to, we will not be able to have faith. If we don’t repent of where we are we still will not have faith; repentance heeds faith. Let us walk in your grace through believing in you and what you’ve done on the cross for us. As you rebirth us on the truth of who you are and what you are in us, let us move forward into righteousness and sanctification in you. Let us live daily by the power of the Almighty. Shine light in areas that are stopping us from seeing your way. Create a sensitive heart that is victorious over the crushed flesh. Give us a sensitive heart to hear the voice of the Lord. Let us have hearts that seek understanding in all things. When we understand your will, we can go into another level of understanding what you want. Get the glory from us today. Open Mr. Charlestons heart in which he wants to remain silent. Also help those who are lonely in the church now. Let us find our place and recognize that our calling has a place in the puzzle for us. We want to feel that in our lives. Word of the Day: Pastor John When the Israelites didn’t harken to God’s message, they didn’t make it to the promised land or ever experience peace. When we hear his word, we need to receive it and do something with it. He is faithful to fulfill his word.

In Prayer Summary
Keep us bound together as we go into battle. As we go to war, tie us together and let our weapons be sharp. Let us not shy away from the pain that comes from being bound together. We’re sharing one another’s pain and struggles, allow that to lead us to pray and war on behalf of the other. When one of us falls, the rest will be able to keep them up. We look to you to bind us through the light you have planted deep into our hearts. When the godly are in authority the people rejoice, when the wicked are in control the people groan. We need to get to a place to where the godly are in control. We want godly people in authority to lead this society. Let us start with putting you in authority in our own lives. Help us to trust you enough to share our testimonies. Testimonies that show your goodness and lay as evidence that cannot deny your power. Help us to trust you enough to be a witness to who you are and have that testimony. Let their be no question about your goodness. Let our lives be evidence that you are real. Help us to proclaim what you’ve said and allow others to see it come to pass. Speak to us and give us promises to hold onto. Take us back to the basics of living by your word. Help us to be willing to pour out our lives as a drink offering. Let us fight this fight in order to conquer with stronger faith. Help us to carry your Spirit today and be ministers and priests in every circle we go into.

Give us discernment and have your way in our lives. Look on us because our being, purpose and assignment is from you alone. Help us to put on the full armor of God. Look on the school districts and the children within the educational system. The enemy is attacking them. Remove those who aren’t doing well with their place of authority. Remove those who no longer have a desire for teaching so you can raise up people for the job. Surround them with people who will get the job accomplished. We need strategies, wisdom and guidance so we can do the work you’ve called us to do. Strengthen our inner man. Word of the Day: Mrs. Teasha she keeps testing him, but she realized that faith isn’t a matter of whether or not he will show up in this situation. She’s pushing past thoughts that seek validation before she obeys God.
