It all began on Sunday, January 1, 1978
 
Over 40 years ago, Living Water started out as a Prayer Meeting in Frank & Phyllis Dupree’s living room in Laurel, NY on Long Island’s east end. Soon, the church grew, and on January 1, 1978, we moved into a storefront building in Jamesport, NY.

WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?

Nothing is ever one-sided; everything contains its opposite. God has instituted laws. One particular law I find fascinating is the Law of Polarity. Sir Isaac Newton discovered a scientific principle revealing that any action has an equal and opposite reaction; forces come in pairs. With Faith, there is fear, when there is gain, there is loss. There is increase, there will be decrease. When there is joy, there is sadness, there is positive, there is negative, etc.
 
Everything has an opposite. Everything is dual, everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree. In life, it is the flip side of the coin, your right, my left, the front, the back. Heat and cold may appear to be opposites at first glance, but in truth they are simply varying degrees of the same thing. The same principle applies to love and hate, light and darkness, etc.
 
I remember this in my life not too long ago when my Mom passed away. Subsequent to her passing, my daughter had given birth to her son and another daughter got married. Where there is life, there is death. When something begins, something has ended. When something ends, there is always something that begins.
 
When you understand the law of polarity as written in Ecclesiastes chapter 3:11-8. “to everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”, etc. Solomon was declaring everything contains its opposite. One aspect of a quality cannot be experienced without the existence of the opposing aspect.
 
Today’s lesson: you can transform your thoughts from hate to love, from being weak to being strong. ” Let the weak say I am strong, let the poor say I am rich, let the blind say I can see. Because of what the Lord has done for me.” In addition, transform your fear to faith by consciously taking charge and choosing which side of the spectrum you want to think on. Remember, it is within your power to choose, so choose well.

Unity In Your Family

Unity In Your Family

Sunday, May 27, 2018 – Pastor George Dupree

 

We’re so glad you’ve decided to spend part of your day with us at Living Water Church. We pray that the message will inspire and encourage you to be all you can for Christ. Today we’re talking about Unity In Your Family – A house divided will not stand but a house in unity will be blessed by God

Thank you for your support of Living Water Church – You can give here

Psalms 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it isfor brethren to dwell together in unity!
2 It islike the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. 3 It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing—life forevermore.
 
Unity prompts a heavenly response of unrestrained and lavish abundance from the Lord, the fragrant anointing of the Spirit and the commanded blessing.
 
Psalm 133 is what’s know as a song of Assents – may scholars believe they were songs that were sung as the people would come together in Jerusalem for the feast days.
 
There were people from all over coming together to worship, together.
 
There is something that happens when people come together to worship God.
 
But it goes much further than coming together it really means LIVING together.
 
That’s why the psalm ends with the phrase LIFE FOREVERMORE!
 
When a family lives in unity there is LIFE and a commanded blessing from God Almighty.
 
So how can family live life together in unity?
 
Speak words of life and encouragement, that’s a key to a family living life in unity.
 
Make time to have at least one meal every day TOGETHER – turn of the TV, turn off the electronics, turn off the telephone, talk to each other. Parents bless the food and the family.
 
Husbands and wives make time to be with each other. Take a walk, take a ride, sit next to each other and hold hands.
 
Men, tell your wife at least 5 times a day that you love her.
 
Speak words of love and praise to her over and over and over.
 
Wives make sure you encourage your husband. Tell him how much you appreciate him. Tell him he’s a good man. Tell him that you’re happy to be married to him.
 
Fathers tell your daughters how special they are, let them know from a very early age that you’re their daddy and you’ll always be there for them, tell them over and over that they deserve to have a good man for their husband someday. Tell them that they’re precious and beautiful.
 
Fathers tell your sons that you’re proud of them. Find some things that they do well and compliment them about it. Encourage them even when they strike out or drop the ball. Take time to play with them.
 
Husbands treat your wife with respect, open the car door for her, let her walk out the door first. Honor and cherish her.
 
Wives treat your husband with respect, he’ll thrive in that kind of environment.
 
These things are not quick fixes to family problems, they’re lifelong commitments to building a happy home.
 
Matthew 12:25 Jesus…said to them…a house divided against itself will not stand.

Honor Your Mother

Honor Your Mother

Sunday, May 13, 2018 – Pastor George M. Dupree

Ephesians 6:2 Honor your father and mother. This is the first of the Ten Commandments that ends with a promise. 3 And this is the promise: If you honor your father and mother, you will live a long life, full of blessing.

If you will honor you Mother things will go well for you and you’ll have a long life.

There are three stages of a mother child relationship.

1 – As a Child we learn to obey.

Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents; this is the right thing to do because God has placed them in authority over you.

2 – As a Teenager we learn to respect

Leviticus 19:3 Every one of you must respect his mother…

Hebrews 12:9 We respect our own parents for training and not spoiling us, so why not embrace God’s training so we can truly live?

One way we respect is to talk and listen respectfully.

Proverbs 13:1 Intelligent children listen to their parents; foolish children do their own thing.

.

When you listen respectfully you’ll learn some things

Proverbs 6:20 … never forget what your mother taught you. 21 Keep their words with you always, locked in your heart.

3 – Adulthood is where we learn how to appreciate

Proverbs 23:22b When your mother is old, show her your appreciation.

Appreciate her efforts – parenting is hard

Think about how much easier her life would’ve been without you.

Thank and appreciate your mom for putting up with you

Appreciate her sacrifice – Parenting is expensive.

According to the Department of Agriculture for a middle-income family of four the estimated cost of raising a child from birth through age 17 is $233thousand dollars.

Choosing to become a parent is an expensive decision.

Proverbs 23:25b May she who gave you birth be happy.

As a whole, western culture does not respect the elderly like many other non-western cultures. Oftentimes western cultures use much of their resources on the young and forget the elderly.

Jesus only said a few things on the cross and one of those things was said to his friend John when He told him to care for His mother, Mary.

God gives a very stern a very warning about caring for family

1 Timothy 5:8 But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Remember your mother and tell her that you appreciate and love her.

Call her, write to her, and take some time to be with her.

She may not be able to do everything she used to be able to do but she’s a human being not a human doing.

When you need someone to pray for you ask her.
