Foundations: God Bearers

Over the course of history Jewish leaders (priests, prophets, rabbis) have seen Scriptures as their foundation and most valuable asset. For instance, the study of the text was the only reason for a man to forego marriage once he has reached the age of responsibility.
With this in mind, we can understand the continuos reference of words like: “and God said…” in the creation story in Genesis, the power of the God’s word bringing to an abrupt halt the construction of the Tower of Babel, the admonition in Deuteronomy 8: “man shall not leave by bread alone, but by God’s decree”, etc. This cross cutting theme is also reflected in different guises in every book in the Old and New Testament. 
So, dear friends if words are powerful, then Divine Words are super powerful. Destinies can be shaped by right teaching, and derailed by misguided or short sighted teaching, more or less what Jesus termed “old wine, in new wine skin”
This Sunday I will make the connection between God and the bearers of his Word. It is important to note that since God spoke through people, to be an oracle of God was the most noble of vocation. As such Priests, Prophets, and much later Rabbis were held in very high esteem, as they laid and sustained the foundations on which all that lasts are nurtured and established.
The destiny of the people and the nation at large rested on the shoulders of these people, therefore in return, their welfare was the responsibility of the people.
Join us as we set foundations for 2017
We march in the light of Nahum’s assertions: 
(For the Lord is restoring the majesty of Jacob, as well as the majesty of Israel, though ravagers have ravaged them and ruined their branches.) – Nahum 2:2

This Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship

As the season changes and 2016 draws to a close, and we are at the dawn of 2017, friends, I hear the warning the lord gave to Nineveh through Prophet Nahum (2:1), and the consolation he returned to Israel (2:2) for her years in exile, affliction and shame. 

So tomorrow I will be revisiting our theme for 2016: Our Year of Plenty, (Gen. 41:46-49). And over the next 3 months we will be going into a season of Prayer, Prophetic Declaration, and Thanksgiving. 
For “Joseph was thirty years old when he entered the service of Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from Pharaoh’s presence and traveled throughout Egypt. 
During the seven years of abundance the land produced plentifully. Joseph collected all the food produced in those seven years of abundance in Egypt and stored it in the cities. 
In each city he put the food grown in the fields surrounding it. Joseph stored up huge quantities of grain, like the sand of the sea; it was so much that he stopped keeping records because it was beyond measure.” – Genesis 41:46-49
Join us this Sunday at our new venue.
