ACTS 2 CHURCH

Posted on September 8, 2020 at 1:40 AM


 

                                             >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Frances Chan>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


                                       


I heard a powerful message from a minister, and I’d like to share the gist of it with you:

Jeremiah 1:4-5

4 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument],
And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own];  
I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

 

Have you thought ~ ‘Before I came out of my mothers womb, God had a design for my life right now. God made me for this time and this place. He created me, because there is a job He needs me to do now at this time. Jesus did not die that we should live ordinary lives. He died to cleanse my soul, so Holy Spirit could enter into me enabling me to do what He designed me to produce.

 

 God is in me; His Spirit indwells me. My life must show I am extraordinary, and I must not resemble an ordinary man without God in him. I am not destined for ordinary! I am special with God in me, and God put me here for this time (like Esther) Remember she was told:

Esther 4:14  Who knows? Maybe you were made queen for just such a time as this.”

 We cannot allow fear to hold us back from obeying God's Words. We must trust in Him!

Hebrews 10:38 (NIV)     “But my righteous[a] one will live by faith.
    And I take no pleasure
    in the one who shrinks back.”[b]


                                     


Heb 10:38 if he shrinks back "my soul has no pleasure in him". I would hate to have God say ‘He had no pleasure in me!’ What about you?

 Jesus, You said You’d build a church united…  it was true in Acts chapter 2, there was no needy person among them. The new church people were fearless. Miracles happened. It was Jesus’ beautiful concept.

 

Acts 2:42-47  (TPT)

The Community of Believers

42 Every believer was faithfully devoted to following the teachings of the apostles. Their hearts were mutually linked to one another, sharing communion and coming together regularly for prayer.

 

43 A deep sense of holy awe swept over everyone, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders.

44 All the believers were in fellowship as one body, and they shared with one another whatever they had. 45 Out of generosity they even sold their assets to distribute the proceeds to those who were in need among them. 46 Daily they met together in the temple courts and in one another’s homes to celebrate communion.

 

They shared meals together with joyful hearts and tender humility. 47 They were continually filled with praises to God, enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord kept adding to their number daily those who were coming to life.


                                              

 

 Would you want to be a member of that church? I wonder if we have become a selfish culture? Could we truly be the church Jesus envisioned? I know some today don’t want to be that kind where they cared not for possessions; just cared about the mission; now we don’t want to suffer. Maybe life has become too good, too easy for us? Modern church became: go to a building for an hour a week, sing some songs, listen to a message, go home, and come back next week. Then along comes pandemic and isolation. Now church became watching Sunday sevice on the computer or TV with a cup of coffee in hand maybe still in pjs. Jesus' vision of His united in love and togetherness church has dispersed into one of ease and conveience in isolation. 

 

Jesus said He would build His church so inundated with one heart one spirit all woven together, and that just does not compute with what we have today.

 

But others look at the isolation differently. . . as God’s leading us on a new journey. God says come with Me to construct a more resilient church; leaders are to equip people to be one with God and united with others. After isolation we can’t just go back to Egypt. This is the window of opportunity now. This isolation shows how unprepared we were. Now is when we need to be getting equipped; really get into GOD'S presence.

 

My life has looked way too ordinary, God! Your church is so much greater! I believe you made me for this time. I have HOLY SPRIT in me; please speak to me. Show me; I was made for this time!  I was made for this!

Jesus said in John 15:16   You didn’t choose Me, but I’ve chosen and commissioned you to go into the world to bear fruit. And your fruit will last, because whatever you ask of my Father, for My sake, He will give it to you!

17 So this is my parting command: Love one another deeply!”

 

Bearing fruit is to love others, to live love, share love, and teach love.


                                                           

 

PRAYER:

Just look at what is: Holy Spirit (God) is in me! Does it show? Or has my life looked too normal? I must get into God’s Presence. I believe You made me for this time, God! Holy Spirit is in me and since You created me for this time, I believe You want to use me. So tell me, Lord, what do You want me to do?

 

I am ready to move forward. I’ve missed interacting with my brothers and sisters! I’ve missed You leading, prompting me to help them, being encouraged by them. Jesus, bring us Your vision for our time!

 

                                                                  \]]]]\

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
