One of my favorite bible scriptures is Hebrews 12 which says: “For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”   In order for you to lead yourself and thus ultimately lead others, it starts with self discipline.   If you can have more discipline in your life, business, relationships, money, etc. This will ultimately lead you to self mastery.   And once you reach self mastery... that will lead you to Monetizing your Gifts and Talents. In this episode, we discuss: ● If things aren't working in your life and business, it's most likely a discipline issue ● Why having more discipline will allow you to stop living in fear and have you start living more in faith ● How reaching self mastery leads you to Monetizing your Gifts and Talents   Follow us on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/chrisandericmartinez/ and see the full Show Notes to this episode here https://www.liveadynamiclifestyle.com/podcast/how-mastering-self-discipline-will-lead-to-self-mastery/   Attention Health & Fitness Coaches!   Are you sick of struggling to get online coaching clients?   Imagine being able to easily get new online coaching clients from your socials for FREE…   Even if you have a small following!   And you don't have to be a rockstar on video or spend a cent on paid ads.   Sounds too good to be true, but hundreds of people are using this formula with HUGE success…   You can be the next!   Grab our new guide: The 3 Step Client Getting Formula - How to land 10 new online health & fitness coaching clients in as little as 10 days, (without spending a cent on paid ads)   Text us the word “FORMULA” to 213 319 6702

This message looks at the difference between a spiritually immature Christian and a maturing Christian. By identifying several characteristics of what the Author of Hebrews calls "Milk Drinkers" or immature believers, we discuss how that relates to the American Church today and to the status of a majority of Christians. We also discuss the dangers that await those Christ followers who never move towards a more mature faith and a deeper walk with God.  In our passage of Hebrews, we discover several hints as what it means and looks like in a practical sense, to be a mature or growing Christian. From Hebrews 5:11-14

Episode 124 - Today is our last day in our Tabernacle series, as we get ready to celebrate Christmas in our upcoming season. What better way to prepare for the Incarnate Christ, than to behold one last time the symbolism of the Tabernacle for the incarnation? So we retrace our steps all the way back from Eden, shedding yet another perspective on the essential nature of our understanding of God's tabernacle for us today as believers. We also take time to tie in loose ends, which point to our Lord gloriously: where is the Ark of the covenant today? What will happen in the future, according to Bible prophecy? Stephanie takes us on a highly experiential episode by highlighting key texts from the Book of Hebrews, and their significance for the Tabernacle today. In a nutshell? The essence of being “IN Christ” and Christ being “IN” us. More details about this final episode in our series: It began as a garden, that became a forbidden place. It was a dwelling place, not a tent. The tent began as just a tent, the dwelling-place of Abraham … It was our first lesson, 8 weeks ago. First came the Tabernacle, a tent whose architect was God, but whose builder was Moses; it was a copy of the future, heavenly tabernacle that would come down from heaven to be the true dwelling place of God with Man, and Man with God. His Name would be Jesus. That first tabernacle, it was a tent within a tent, separated by a veil, a veil which protected God's people from the nuclear-blast strength of His glory. The Tabernacle traveled and traveled, leading Israel into the promised Land. It finally settled in Jerusalem, and became the Temple. Then, “the Word became flesh and pitched his tent among us”; God, in the person of Jesus, dwelt with his people, and died for them. The true Tabernacle had revealed His glory. God now dwells among his people through his Holy Spirit. We, individually and corporately as the universal church, are the Tabernacle and the Temple. Jesus was our forerunner, the “firstborn from the dead” (Col 1.18). We are the next ones after the FIRST born. The human body is a tent, the Tabernacle, or Temple, of the Holy Spirit during life, but soon to be taken down, and replaced, “For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.” (2 Cor 5.1). That's where we are today. So, what's next? Revelation takes us up to heaven, God's people dwelling with him in glory. There is no veil, no separation. Revelation does not end with man going up to heaven to live forever with God. It ends with God coming down from heaven to live with man – in a tent which is now a great city. From the garden to the city that contains a garden – that's Revelation 21. That glorious heavenly Jerusalem, united with the New heaven and the New Earth, is glorious for many reasons; the most astounding is that God Himself dwells there—and therefore, this is the very definition of heaven. One thing is conspicuously absent from the new Jerusalem. There is no temple, no tabernacle. John did not see a temple in the city, “for the Lord God almighty is its temple, and the Lamb” (Rev 21.22). This city is not a building, and the church is not a building. The new Jerusalem is not, essentially, a city but the church, the people of God with whom he has always wanted to dwell. The Bible ends with the glorious promise that God will come again to dwell with His people forever—at a much more glorious level than anything we have ever experienced even in our most intense moments of intimacy through the Holy Spirit.

SHOW NOTES:   In Podcast Episode 142, “Encouraging Others to Stay Strong in Their Faith,” Kim discusses the importance of being intentional about encouraging believers to remain strong in their faith. This does not only apply to those young in their faith but to all believers, no matter the season of their Christian walk.   The primary scripture text for this episode is 1 Samuel 23:15-18 with 16 as the focal verse:   15 One day near Horesh, David received the news that Saul was on the way to Ziph to search for him and kill him. 16 Jonathan went to find David and encouraged him to stay strong in his faith in God. 17 “Don't be afraid,” Jonathan reassured him. “My father will never find you! You are going to be the king of Israel, and I will be next to you, as my father, Saul, is well aware.” 18 So the two of them renewed their solemn pact before the Lord. Then Jonathan returned home, while David stayed at Horesh.   ADDITIONAL VERSES:   So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)   Joshua 1   24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. (Hebrews 10:24-25)   13 Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. (1 Corinthians 16:13)   12 Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. (1 Timothy 4:12) Weekly Assignment Feature:    Prayerfully choose one person to encourage in his/her faith this week.   Additional Resources:   5 Ways to Encourage Your Friend in Their Faith by Dawson McAllister. https://www.thehopeline.com/5-ways-encourage-your-friend-in-their-faith/ How To Keep & Rebuild Faith During Struggles by The HopeLine https://www.thehopeline.com/topics/faith/ For more on the Overcast podcast app, go to https://overcast.fm/ For more information on Stalking, you may want to begin at https://www.rainn.org/articles/stalking I WANT TO BEGIN A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.    RESOURCES USED FOR BOOK OF 1 & 2 Samuel PODCASTS: “The Wiersbe Bible Commentary: The Complete Old Testament OT in One Volume” “The Tony Evans Bible Commentary: Advancing God's Kingdom Agenda” “Life Application Study Bible” “The Swindoll Study Bible: NLT” by Charles R.

Slideshow for this message is available Introduction John 13-14 Well, open your Bible's to John chapter 14. When I was in high school my parents took us up the Pudget sound to go sailing. My uncle knew a guy who knew a guy who knew a guy who was ‘really good' - one of those confidence inducing relationships. So we set out and the wind was stiff but we were nicely protected by this large peninsula that was jutting out into the open water. Everything was going great until we lost the shelter of that peninsula. As soon as we hit the open water, within a matter of seconds, the full blast of the high winds of the pudget sound hit our sails at a sharp right angle to our boat and we were catapulted sideways. The blast was so hard we all fell to the deck and grabbed anything we could to hang on. And I remember watching the sail lean over so far, they dipping into the water. We were just hanging on for dear life and I thought, “Oh great we've capsized in the middle of the ocean. No boat can recover from this position.” The sails of our boat were literally laying on the surface of the water. But then to my absolute astonishment this boat that was laying almost perpendicular to the water slowly righted itself. It just stood straight back up. And then the sails filled again and it capsized a second time. And then a third time. But every time the sails emptied, it stood straight back up. In the sailing world, this is called a knock over. That was my introduction to the concept of ballast. Every sailing boat has this giant amount of weight that is positioned deep down in the boat, often times many feet beneath the surface at the bottom of the keel. When that boat is perfectly vertical, the ballast is doing nothing. But as soon as to boat begins to tip the force of the ballast begins to counter the force of the sails. And the more it tips, the more the ballast kicks in. Without the ballast the ship would be super top heavy and it was just instantly fall over, even without wind. But with ballast the vessel can actually leverage and harness the wind's energy. Well, today we want to talk about a spiritual ballast available to us that allows us to counter tremendous environmental storms that might come our way and even leverage those storms for good purposes. The Christian has access to a stabilizing force that keeps us from being tipped over by the trials and storms and difficulties of life and even catapults us forward in the direction of God's kingdom. Today's message is all about the way to add that ballast to your soul so that you will not be shaken. The Context Remember, in John 14, Jesus is in the upper room with his disciples. And Jesus was letting them know about a serious impending spiritual storm. There was a category five hurricane about ready to bear down on them. And Jesus, knowing this storm was looming, was doing everything he could to pour ballast into the hull of their souls. He was just dumping heavy rocks in as fast as he could to stabilize his disciples for what he knew was coming. And what was coming? Do you remember from last week? Jesus predicts that Peter's faith is about to shatter. Peter is banging on his chest saying, “Lord, I'll die for you!” And Jesus looks Peter in the eye and says, “Will you? Will you die for me?” Before the rooster crows you will deny me three times. Your faith is about to shatter like a pane of glass. Your confidence is unfounded. And I'm sure all the disciples look at one another and say to themselves, if Peter's faith is about to shatter, what does that mean for the rest of us? There's all this uncertainty and this cloud of doubt gets kicked up. They are profoundly upset. And rightly so. Jesus is going to die. Jesus keeps alluding to it. There's a storm coming that is going to bear down on them. They will lose all bearings. Their sails will dump into the sea. Every single one of these disciples is going to suffer a horrible death as followers of Jesus. It will seem like their is no hope, like they will certainly perish, like there is no possible way for them to survive. People don't survive when they are capsized like this. But there's this ballast that just hangs and pulls and it makes them ultimately untippable. The wind is howling, the sails empty, and then out of the grave of that suffering, they rise. So what is this ballast that the Christian possesses? We are going to see what it is, how to get it, why it's wonderful and how you can know it's true. Let's start with what it is. What's the ballast? When things are hard, the one thing you need is hope. Hope changes everything. Hope is ballast. A person can suffer almost anything if there is hope. If there is a reason for the suffering, we can endure. If there is an end of the suffering we can make it. And so Jesus says, "Yes, you are about get blasted by this hurricane. But here's what I want you to think about. I want the glory of this thought, the weight of this idea to stabilize you. Here's a truth so weighty it will pull you up out of that storm and cause you to rise against all odds. There's one phrase in here that makes all the difference in the world, “I will come again.” That one phrase creates HOPE. The Navy Seals are famously known for their slogan, “No One Left Behind” which means that if you are captured behind enemy lines your team is going to come back for you. Someone out there is thinking about you, someone is planning your escape, someone will rescue you. That single piece of information makes all the difference. You may be captured. You may be imprisoned. You may be tortured. But know this. We are coming for you. The core promise here in John 14 is identical. Jesus simply says, “I'm coming for you to take you home.” Yes, you might suffer a terrible illness. Yes, you might be persecuted for the name of Christ. You might suffer marginalization, beatings, imprisonments, torture. But know this: Jesus Christ is coming to take you home. That is such simple concept and yet so incredibly profound. In my father's house are many rooms. There's a place for you that I've prepared and I'm coming. Now, one quick note regarding translations. The KJV is an excellent translation of the Bible and it has served and still marvelously serves millions of people. There are a few places where the King James Translation is really sticky and this is one of them. The King James translates this, “In my father's house are many mansions.” How many of you have that translation in your head? That's the version in my head. The word mansion brings to mind giant estates with pools and beach-side houses. Well that's definitely not the idea here. You have to remember the KJV is an old translation. It was originally translated in 1611 (410 years old) and the English language has changed a lot since then. The Greek word translated mansions is the word μοναὶ, (plural of μονή) which simply means dwelling place (room). The latin word mansio comes from this Greek word. And then our English word comes from the Latin word. When it was originally translated mansion literally meant room. It didn't have the meaning it did today. So you are a translator of the KJV in 1611. And you come to this verse, “In my father's house are many _______.” You have two or three really good options. You could choose dwelling place, room, or mansion. All of them basically mean the same thing. Why not choose the word that is a derivative of the original? So that's what they did. That makes sense. But of course the word has changed a lot since then. Now, there's actually another word in English we get from the Greek Word. It's our word mason. A mason is one who builds dwellings of stone. The homes built with stone were permanent dwellings. Jesus is saying, I go to prepare for you a room, but one made of stone (so to speak), a eternal dwelling place. This is the core of the promise. We all seek a place to dwell, permanently. Those of you who know me, know I love to work with my hands. I love projects. But if I'm going to do something I want to do it once. I don't want to come back years later and have to do it again. And therefore my dream in life is to retire and quarry out large stones and build a castle. Whoever built this is my hero. It's amazing. Hundreds and hundreds of years old and it's still standing. There's a permanence that just sings to your heart, doesn't it? Our houses are made of sticks of wood. If your sprinklers get on the siding it just rots away in a few years. How lame is that? Answer: very lame. We want something permanent. If it's not permanent then there's insecurity. If you are living under a bridge, that's pretty insecure. You could upgrade to a hotel. But that's still not too secure. You could upgrade to an apartment. But even an apartment has less security than a home. But even a home that is really owned by the bank is less secure than a home that's owned by you. Which of these does your heart long for. Your heart longs for a permanent place. A place where you can dwell forever. This points to something deep in us. When Jesus say, “I go to prepare a place for you.” He's referencing this deep longing we all have for permanence. What's the ballast of the Christian? There's a permanent, eternal place for you. Long for it as you may, this world CANNOT provide it. But Jesus can! Jesus is coming to take you to that permanent place! Well that sounds great! How do we get there? When you read the text, initially, there's this sense of exhilaration. Sweet! I can't wait to have my castle in the sky. When do I get my place? That's not it. We discover that that can't be what he's talking about. This arresting realization comes via a surprising stipulation. There's a disturbing disclaimer. If you want a permanent place you have to go on this very narrow way. If you are on the way, you get the place. If you aren't on the way you'll never get to the place. Christianity is a very exclusive religion. Jesus does not say, "I am going to prepare a place for everyone." That place is only prepared for those who are on the way. Now what do we mean when we say that Jesus is the way? When we talk about a way, implied is a destination. There's one and only one route that can be followed to reach that destination - that is the way. When you get on I-84, where are you headed? It depends on which way you go - East or West. You might end up in Portland or Miami. That's a pretty big difference. Let's say you start going East. That's part of the way. But that's not enough. Going East might land you in Miami but it also might end you up in NYC. You make a decision about a few hundred miles down the road that determines that. Every intersection represents a decision point and therefore a different way. After every decision the possible destinations narrow. If you want a specific beach in Florida, then eventually you have to go through this narrow little draw gate. And you pay your fee and have to squeeze through that parking gate and there's spikes on the road so it admits traffic in one direction. There's ONLY one way. This is Jesus' picture of salvation. Matthew 7 The point Jesus is making in John 14 is that the way and the destination is one and the same. The reason that Jesus is the only way to the place is that he is the place. It's like saying the way to enjoy coffee is by drinking coffee. Jesus is the way to the place because Jesus is the place. Hasn't that been the whole point of all the I Am statements? I am the bread of life. I am living waters I am the the light of the world I am the vine You want life? light? sustenance? It's in me. Well, if that's the case that Jesus is the place, that the destination is Jesus, why does he have to go away to prepare it? Why does he have to go away to prepare a place if he is the place. The place is prepared already, right? Great observation. This is absolutely correct. The place is ready for us but we are not ready for the place. Jesus' departure is His preparing of us for the place. Think about it. This has to be the interpretation especially from what you know of John's style. Jesus is not going to heaven as if heaven doesn't have enough room and he's got to start a remodeling project. That's goofy. That can't possibly be what is meant. In the context, it is the going itself, via the cross and resurrection, that prepares the place for us. It's the going that makes the way. It's the going that prepares the way. Without him going to the cross their can be no way. You see, we cannot enter that place. We are unfit. We are unclean. Our muddy feet have no place in that kingdom. But it's the cross that makes the way available. The author of Hebrews makes this point explicit. He's talking about this problem of sin in the Old Covenant. In the OT sin created this barrier between men and God and so there was this veil that separated. We need God but if we get close to God we die. Our sin makes us unfit. And so there was this whole sacrificial system which allowed men to approach God through the blood of sacrifice. But then Jesus came and made a way for us to approach God because he took away our sin. Hebrews 10 The way is through his flesh. Do you see that it is Jesus' departure via the cross, that creates the way, that makes the way to the place. That is the narrow gate. It is through the flesh of Jesus that we enter into God. Listen, if you are not on that way and want to get on it, then here's what you do. Believe that Jesus is the way. Believe that Christ died for your sins. Place your faith in Jesus Christ and then be baptized. That's what you need to do. Believe and be baptized. Right now, place your faith in Christ and then come find me afterwards and say, “I just placed my faith in Jesus and I want to be baptized.” And then we are going to celebrate with you. Right church? Jesus says, the reason the place is wonderful is that the Father is there which, for the disciples, should feel very familiar to them. You see it here again. I am the place. You want to get to heaven and behold the glory of God. I am the glory of God. I am the place. Know me, and you know the father. Now, this is unsatisfactory to Philip. You can see the wheels in his head turning. He doesn't like this answer. He says: Philip gets a lot of flack for this but Philip is being reasonable. He was right in recognizing that when he was looking at Jesus, he wasn't seeing what Moses saw on top of the mountain. He wasn't seeing what Isaiah saw in the chapter 6 where the whole temple shook with the glory of the Lord. It wasn't the shakina glory. There is something missing. And that is exactly what Philip is asking for. So why is he being rebuked here by Jesus? Because Philip wasn't aware of the problem. Yes, Philip, that's the goal. I want to show you all my glory. I want to show you the unveiled version. But you are in no condition for that unveiled blast. Do you even remember Moses? Do you even understand what was necessary for him to see just the backside of me? He had to be hid in the cleft of the rock? You want to see the glory of God and not be incinerated? You want to see the father? You think you are in a better condition than Moses? You too need to be hid in a cleft. I am the cleft. I am the veil that right now is keeping you from being consumed. Behind me is the Father. If the glory of my father would come out of me it would destroy you. I am shielding you from instant death by glory. I and the Father are one. You want to see the Father? Hide yourself in me. Now you will see, one day with unveiled faces. How? If you want to go to see the glory of the Father, then I must go and prepare a way. I must go and the VEIL of my flesh must be torn in two so that through my torn flesh you can now enter with UNVEILED faces. The point of heaven is behold the unveiled glory of God. The reason heavent is awesome is because God is. God is the end. God is the point. God is the supreme finale. It's begins and ends with him. Why did we take time to correct the KJV translation of mansions? It's not because we are trying to say that heaven won't be full of mansions. There will be mansions. Just read the description of the New Jerusalem in Revelation. Streets of gold, a sea of crystal, gates of pearls. Whatever that's referencing, it's painting the picture of opulence like we've never known. So why fuss about the translation. Because the point of the John 14 is that you are going to love heaven not because of the 5 star accommodations. You are going to love heaven because of who is there. Our desires ultimately point us to the unveiled GLORY of the Father who accepts us in Christ. That's our ballast. That makes us untippable. No storm can tip a Christian who has that as their hope. Now one final point. Now Philip is saying, that sounds crazy. How can you be God? How can the glory of the Father on Mt Sinai be the same as you, this normal human standing in front of me? What's the answer. I'm not normal. You see the miracles point to something. Our entire faith hinges on the reality of miracles. A lot of people try to find natural explanations for miracles as if they are doing God a favor in doing that. We don't want people to think that Christians are a bunch of crazies so we are trying to sterilize all these miracles. But they are actually doing the opposite. Would you have confidence that Jesus was the Son of God, that he was actually God incarante if all he did was heal people of headaches. The claim is giant. The claim cannot be believed unless there is something significant to back it. Here were people who traveled closely with Jesus and of anyone who was in the position to be a whistle blower it would be these guys. And yet Jesus looks them straight in the eye and says, if you don't believe me, believe the miracles. Healing blind people, watching withered hands grow, raising people from the death. Let the miracles do the talking. The logic is pretty tight. Whoever can do miracles like this has a right to speak for God. And what is this God-man saying? In my father's house are many rooms. I go to prepare a place for you. And I will come again. Advent Introduction Now, as in right now, advent begins. We all want a place of permanence. We all want a home. And during the Christmas season we celebrate how God made a WAY for us to be with the Father in that home. This sermon is the last in our series on John for the year and also the first in our advent series. Jesus Christ came to earth to make a way for us to have a home in heaven. And so for the next several weeks we are going to look at the way to our home. What is a home? It's not a house. It's not less than that, but it's more than that. A home is a place where you're totally accepted. Home is a place where you can be yourself. You can be you. The decorations match you. The music is you. The lighting is you. The food is you. It has your chair. You can be you and you are accepted. It's the place that fits you. That's home. Home is the place that by merely being in it, it gives you life. As good as your earthly home is, it's got problems, the biggest of which is it's not permanent. You will die. You're true home, the thing your heart longs for is heaven. But…. and this is significant, the whole problem is that you can't be you in the presence of God. Heaven is the source of life and if you tried to go there, your life would be snuffed out in a second. Your not fit for the presence of God. You see this is what Christmas is all about. It's offering you a way. It's about the gift of life, it's offering a way to experience that life of God. Our theme for the year is LIFE in his love. The purpose of the book of love is that we might believe and have LIFE in his name. For the next three weeks we will pause from our series in John and enter into our Christmas series entitled, “Unto us, a LIFE is Given.” It's a play on words. The next three messages will play off the three meanings contained in that title. Unto us a life is given. We've also put together an advent booklet that goes along with these themes and Trent is going to walk us through how to use it.

Today I am sharing my conversation with the absolutely wonderful Becky Keife. Becky is wife, a Mom to 3 boys, an author and the community manager of the online (in)courage community. Today, Becky and I are talking about the topic of her latest book The Simple Difference: How Every Small Kindness Makes a Big Impact. Kindness is something we desperately need and is a powerful gift that is underutilized and underestimated, and Becky lays out beautifully in her book and in this conversation the power of it, and how it ultimately reflects the heart of God.  The idea of this book came from a small act of kindness years ago, but this book was written while watching the LACK of kindness in the world, the challenge of being kind quarantined at home with her family, and its just really beautiful and authentic. God knows we're going to struggle with this. He knows the world is broken, and I especially wanted to share this now because so many people are smack in the middle of navigating the holidays and in the current environment of the world and even in the Church, it feels really really difficult to just even know how to people, and for many, what to make of God in the midst of it. So we're going to talk about that.  We also share some thoughts and suggestions for how to go into the holidays with a heart that asks questions first such as can I give this image bearer the dignity of compassion and kindness regardless of how we agree or disagree? On the other hand, we also want to hold proper space for asking good questions about necessary boundaries because those are real and important and healthy where appropriate.  This is hard and holy work, y'all. I know the weariness is palpable in so many that I know, including myself. I hope this ministers to you, encourages you, challenges you, and equips you right where you are today. I really believe, the Lord is making Himself known in so many dark places, and as we transition into a season of the darkest part of the year, and we usher in space for Immanuel, God with us, I just wonder how we could powerfully proclaim His with-ness on this Earth with acts of compassion and kindness? No matter how big, or how small, I hope that wherever you try this out in your life, that is transforms YOU and makes the Lord feel closer and kinder in your own life. Because we all need that. We need to encounter God's kindness, and to see His presence in our lives and in the lives of those around us because it has the power to transform all of us. He's not finished here, friends. This is not how the story ends. Just remember: you matter, your story matters.

Today in the Word Devotional

Have you ever been so discouraged in doing good that you felt like giving up? Micah knew that no matter how difficult his circumstances, God was with him. While for years the prophet failed to bring about any real change in God’s people, Micah refused to be discouraged: “I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.” Even though Micah’s words seem to have fallen on deaf ears (7:7), he knew that what really mattered was not the people’s response but God’s faithfulness. Even though Micah was filled by “misery” (7:1) and surrounded by people who had rejected his call to return to the Lord, he resolutely put his hope in God. He did not look at circumstances, but kept his focus on the Lord’s faithfulness. Micah was demonstrating the type of faith the author of Hebrews writes about in chapter 11: “[C]onfidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see” (v. 1). Hebrews chapter 11 is often called the “Hall of Faith” because it lists people who trusted God despite their circumstances. We read of Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, and others. “They did not receive the things promised” but kept their eyes focused on God and His promises (vv. 13–15). Why? “They were longing for a better country—a heavenly one” (v. 16). Notice the ending in verse 16: “Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God.” What high praise is given here to these men and women who showed faith in God even when faced with challenges! May we, like Micah and the author of Hebrews, become ever more convinced, despite what we see around us, that “my God will hear me” (Mic. 7:7). >> Write down the definition of faith found in Hebrews. What things tend to shake your faith in God? Reread this Scripture often as you strive to become a person of faith. Read also: Hebrews 11:1–16

Awaken The Wonder with Evangelist Caleb Wampler

Some see angels from childhood, and others have to steward the secret place and God unlocks mysteries.  Hebrews 1:14  “Are not angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”   For more information visit: www.kingdomencounters.us Join us for part 3 of this message from Evangelist Caleb Wampler in Jamestown, North Dakota. We often overlook the role of angels in our lives, as well as in scripture.  Angels are mentioned over 270 times in the bible, and are mentioned more than joy or hope.  Angels are on assignment from God to assist believers.  They assist you on the will of God for your life!  Are you aware of the angelic in your life?       If you are hungry for more of the Lord head over to www.kingdomencounters.us/free for the first two chapters of Evangelist Caleb Wampler's book Hunger, for free!

Today's Promise: Hebrews 4:15 Though Jesus was all of God and all of man wrapped up in one person, He experienced all the daily struggles and temptations we do but remained without sin. Jesus was tempted, just like you and me, yet He remained without sin. Because He has literally walked in our shoes, he understands the difficulties and problems we face. He knows our weaknesses and how easy it is to fall to temptation. Jesus doesn't look down on your weakness. He understands and welcomes you into His presence.

Sometimes taking it one day at a time is too much. Maybe you just need enough hope to make it an hour at a time. Sometimes that's too much and you are struggling to live minute by mine. Let's look at what Hebrews 13:6-8 says?  “So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Let's gather some hope in today's 14-minute broadcast. __________________________________________________________________________________________________ Help us Bring HOPE and Encouragement to Others Texting the word GIVE to 833-713-1591 Website https://www.hopeisheretoday.org/donate Shopping on Amazon, select HOPE is Here as your favorite charity (EIN: 83-0522555) Login through this link > https://smile.amazon.com/ch/83-0522555
