Mark Bible Study Changed to a Call to Prayer for Purim, Wednesday, March 4th, 7:00 PM

Originaly Posted on March 2, 2015

Tonight’s book of Mark Bible Study has been changed to a time of prayer and a remembrance of the biblical celebration of Purim. Please read below and feel free to join us at 7:00 PM.

A Purim Call to Prayer for Israel

Today marks the beginning of the biblical Jewish celebration of Purim. Purim is a remembrance and celebration of God’s deliverance of Israel from the plot of destruction by a Persian viceroy named Haman. The book of Esther details this deliverance and establishes the celebration. In light of the recent events and the speech delivered to Congress yesterday by Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu I believe that we should consecrate today as a day of prayer for the nation of Israel and also for our own nation, specifically for the Body of Christ in our nation and in our community.

Tonight, in place of our bi-weekly Bible Study, we are going to have a time of prayer from 7:00-8:00 at our home, 945 Bordentown Road in Burlington. Everyone who would like to come for this corporate time of prayer is welcome. If you are not able to come out or if the weather causes it to be difficult I am asking that from 7:00-8:00 that we would join each other in spirit and pray in our own homes with our own families if we cannot be together.

Whether we are praying together in body or in spirit I would like us to keep a specific form with specific points of intercession. First, a major part of the Purim celebration is the reading of the book of Esther. I would like for us all to read Esther today if we are able, but to begin our time of prayer at 7:00 we will be reading Esther 9:18-32 which is the call for the celebration to be kept. After we have read this passage I would like us to pray three main points:

1. The Peace and Protection of Israel
2. For the Veil to be lifted from the hearts of Israel that they would see Jesus as their Messiah
3. For the Body of Christ in our country and our community to be led by the Holy Spirit to support and intercede for Israel in a righteous manner

Again, we will be meeting at our home from 7:00-8:00; if you cannot join us here please be praying in your home at the same time, beginning with Esther 9 and then praying through these three points as the Holy Spirit leads. Of course, if this time table is not one that fits your schedule please consider keeping the same call to prayer at a different time today.

To use the powerful words of the book of Esther, when Mordecai called Esther to action on behalf of the Jews: “who knows whether you [we] have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” May we join ourselves to the heart of God for His nation that He would be glorified and that they would be blessed and that the promise of Romans would come to pass that all of Israel would be saved.

As always, if you have any questions please email me at abie@cityofrefugefellowship.org

New Sermon Series “The Value and Function of God’s Word”

Originaly Posted on December 31, 2014

Beginning this Sunday, January 4th, we will begin a new sermon series focusing on God’s Word. Over the last few months we have affirmed a new identity statement, our mandate and established our values. The first of our values is God’s Word. Over the next few weeks we will concentrate on that value by discussing the value of God’s Word, the function of God’s Word, our response to God’s Word and how the Body of Christ, as a community can value God’s Word faithfully and intimately as individuals and a corporate group.

Book of Mark Study, Wednesday, January 7th, 7:00PM

Originaly Posted on December 31, 2014

In addition to studying the Sermon on the Mount on Sundays, we are studying the book of Mark at Wednesday night Bible study. The plan is to study Jesus’s teaching about the Kingdom of God and Jesus’s life that lived out the Kingdom at the same time. In this way we believe that we will hear Jesus teach and see Jesus fulfill the teaching at the same time.

Our next class will be Wednesday, January 7thh and we will be studying Mark chapter 9:38-50.

This class will meet every other Wednesday night from 7:00 to 8:30 at the Kulynych’s home at 945 Bordentown Rd. in Burlington. If you have any questions please feel free to email us, there is no child-care provided at this time.

Sermon on the Mount Series Conclusion Sunday, December 28th

Originaly Posted on December 22, 2014

After two years of studying and applying the Sermon on the Mount to our hearts and lives on verse, sometimes one word at a time we will be concluding this series on Sunday, December 28th in our 10:00 gathering. This series has been life changing in many ways, it has shown us how much God values our hearts, at times it has revealed how little attention we give our hearts, but what it has taught us, more than anything else, is that the King of the Kingdom of heaven is our heavenly Father and He cares for us, He loves us and He waits for us in the “secret place”. If you have found this series helpful, if God has used any part of it to strength, convict or encourage you please consider joining us next Sunday, or taking the time to listen to the conclusion once it is posted here on the website. This series has been an incredible gift for me to be able to preach, I pray that it has been a sweet fragrance to God and that it has been a gift of edification to the Church.
