Tuesday Gathering: 5th October 2021
The presence of the Holy Spirit in our gathering this week was keenly felt, and I believe that everyone sensed the idea of ‘standing’, as in ‘holding your ground’, a determination to prevail.
SONG: WE HAVE COME INTO HIS HOUSE
SONG: WE ARE STANDING ON HOLY GROUND
SONG: I STAND BEFORE THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS
SONG: ANCIENT OF DAYS (THOUGH THE NATIONS RAGE KINGDOMS RISE AND FALL)
There was a plethora of scripture read and pondered upon, and we shall just show these without further comment and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you through this time of gathering…
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
Jude 1:20-21 NKJV
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 4:16 NKJV
SONG: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS, GLORY, HALLELUJAH!
SONG: GREAT I AM (?)
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life—
the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us—
that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.
And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.
1 John 1:1-4 NKJV
Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 3:15-16 and 1 John 4:1 NKJV
SONG: FAITHFUL GOD
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."
John 3:16+19-21 NKJV
Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?
Hebrews 13:5-6 AMPC
SONG: ABBA FATHER LET ME BE
SONG: FATHER GOD I WONDER (I WILL SING YOUR PRAISES)
SONG: I AM MY BELOVED’S AND HE IS MINE
But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment.
So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless.
Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
"For many are called, but few are chosen."
Matthew 22:11-14 NKJV
SONG: BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD
A HOLY COMMAND: Oswald Chambers on Love
There is never any risk in love that is ‘talked.’ If love is reticent it becomes a secret treasure that enervates. Keep it in the open, have nothing hidden to brood over.

Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
