Praise & Prayer October

 
On Friday, October 25th we’ll gather together Praise & Prayer.
 
We believe that Praise & Prayer go hand in hand and that great things happen when we do them as a group.
 
There’s an old song that says “It was prayer that got us here…”
At Living Water Church we believe that, prayer is our lifeline to heaven and we want to see God’s Kingdom come and His will be done on earth just as it is in heaven. That’s how Jesus taught us to pray and we’ll be doing that on 10/25.
 
We’ll be looking for you to join with us because we’re better together.

Fathers Blessing

 
Fathers Blessing
Sunday, June 16, 2019 – Pastor George Dupree
 
Genesis 18:18 …..Abraham will become the father of a great and powerful nation, and all the other nations of the earth will find their blessing in him. 19 I have chosen him for a reason, namely that he will carefully instruct his children and his household to keep themselves strong in relationship to Me and to walk in My ways by doing what is good and right in the world and by showing mercy and justice to all others. I know he will uphold his end of the covenant, so that he can ensure My promises to him will be fulfilled and upheld as well.
 
 
A Father – Gives, Speaks, and Keeps
Gives vision to his children of God’s favor and their destined purpose.
Speaks God’s word in faith over his family for success.
keeps his promises to lead his family in the purposes of God.
 
Galatians 3:14 This is what God had in mind all along: the blessing He gave to Abraham might extend to all nations through the Anointed One, Jesus; and we are the beneficiaries of this promise of the Spirit that comes only through faith.
 
Numbers 6:22-26 And the LORD spoketo Moses, saying:{23} “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall blessthe children of Israel. Say to them:{24} “The LORD bless you and keep you;{25} The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;{26} The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace

Pentecost

Sunday, June 9, 2019 – Pastor George M. Dupree
 
Ten Things To Know About Pentecost
 
1. Pentecost Sunday marks the day when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles.
2. Pentecost Sunday occurs 50 days after Easter.
3. The Bible records the Pentecost in Acts 2:1-13.
4. Pentecost comes 10 days after the Ascension of Jesus Christ.
5. Pentecost is also known as “the birthday of the Church”.
6. Pentecost fulfills Jesus’ promise to send the “Counselor” and “Spirit of Truth” in John 16-5-15.
7. Pentecost launches the large-scale spreading of the Gospel after Jesus’ ascension. Acts 2:41 records that after Peter spoke to the crowd after receiving the Holy Spirit, some 3,000 people were baptized.
8. The Pentecostal movement derives its name from the New Testament event in Acts 2.
9. Jews also celebrate Pentecost, but not for the same reason as Christians. The celebration by Jews of Pentecost is to observe God giving the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai 50 days after the Exodus. The Pentecost in Jewish tradition takes place 50 days after Passover.
10. In Western Churches, Pentecost is usually represented with the color red, which symbolizes the fire of the Holy Spirit.
 
The Holy Spirit gives us a supernatural enabling to live a completely different life than we could otherwise live. He enables us to BE His witness everywhere we find ourselves. There’s a BIG difference in witnessing or telling people about Jesus and BEING a witness. When we are a witness our live lines up more accurately with our words.
 
The only way that will really happen is when we are living “Life In The Spirit”
Galatians 5:25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
 
Jesus told His followers that they WOULD receive POWER after the Holy Spirit came upon them. He had already told them they had received the Holy Spirit, now they were receiving a new infilling of the Holy Spirit.
John 20:21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit”.
 
What we see here is that the disciples received the Holy Spirit after Jesus had risen from the dead, but before Pentecost.
 
On Pentecost a different “receiving” of the Holy Spirit occurs. It’s commonly known as a Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Here Jesus says “with”; it’s the Greek word “en” which means “in”. That makes sense because the Greek word for baptized is “baptizo” which means to immerse or submerge.
Acts 1:5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
 
Look at this passage this way
Acts 1:5 For John submerged you in water, but in a few days you will be submerged in the Holy Spirit.
 
Jesus gives a description of what will happen because of this baptism – we receive power.
Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
 
This power has a great purpose for our lives. The power Jesus speaks about enables us to live a life that is an example of Jesus to people and the result will be to point them to the Lord. This power enables us to be overcomers of the harsh realities of the life we live in this world. This power will transform our life; it will produce the fruit of the Spirit in our lives.
 
There are manifestations or demonstrations we can expect as a result of this baptism. Here’s what happened as a result of the first outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost.
Acts 2:1 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
 
There are other manifestations or demonstrations we can expect as a result of this baptism. These are often referred to as the “gifts of the Spirit”. Most commonly they are referred to as nine gifts, but there are more than that. The thing that is common to every gift is this – they point people to the Lord, they are for the common good.
1Corinthians 12:7 …the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?

Did you know what you think becomes the basis of our experiences in life. You become what you think about all day long. As a man thinks in his heart, so he becomes. If you think in your heart that you are powerless, unworthy, undervalued, or simply just being average, that is what you will be. Or perhaps, you believe you will never amount to anything, you are not very smart, you then will become what you have thought about yourself.

On the other side of the spectrum, if you think that God’s might and power Is joined to you, you become more than a conqueror. If you believe the same spirit that raised Christ from the dead is living inside you, you become unstoppable, with unlimited ability. You are only limited by the thoughts that you choose.

Your destiny lies in what you believe about yourself and what you are actually capable of doing. If you believe that you have unlimited potential, you will live your life by design and begin to create the life you want. If you believe that you have very little potential and cannot contribute very much to society, you will live your life by default accepting whatever comes your way.

If you believe greater is He that lives within you than he that is in the world, then you will become lion hearted, fearless and be the salt of the earth that Jesus described you as.

OUT OF YOUR HEART FLOWS

There is a saying that exists and is a true principle; in order to know yourself you need to grow yourself. The converse is true in order to grow yourself, you need to know yourself. Which comes first? LOL

If you raise your awareness and begin to know yourself, you will discover that God has placed some deep underlying motivations and desires within you. These deep desires, if followed, will lead you into the fulfillment of your destiny, especially if you ask God to empower and guide your heart. God is speaking this to His children today, “ I will instruct you and teach you in the way that you should go.” These heart motivations that exist will be expressed whether you are working on a task within your local church or in the community. Whether it is your job, vocation or career, this will be evident if you followed your heart passions or motivations. When you discover the kind of work that excites you, you have discovered the basic underlying heart motivation which flows from within your heart. Remember Jesus said “out of your belly shall flow rivers of living waters.” I believe it is important for you to discover what it is that your heart really loves to do and then do that with all your heart as unto the Lord. I love what one person who defined success as; “doing what you love and being paid for it.” I have learned this in life: “if you are doing what you love, the overflow of excitement and passion from your heart is felt and observed by all who are near.” This is what enables a person to go the extra mile in what they are doing. Whether you are volunteering or getting paid, the results are the same in the work that you do.
