There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth. And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordiances of the Lord blameless. But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well advanced in years.
Have you desired to marry and haven't accomplished your goal? Has traditional customs and rituals left you barren from a husband? Has family traditions stifled you from having a relationship? We will discuss and share with women of how God desires for ALL women to be made whole. Whole doesn't only consists of money, and possession, but also consist of a balalnce and the peace of God. Can women have peace in God with a relationship? We will find out on this broadcast which will empower you for more. Pastor Diane Winbush of Saint Petersburg global Ministries will provide this Apostolic teaching. For more information about us just go to www.saintpetersberg.com
The Grand Scheme of Things~
THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY meets
"Stranger Than Fiction," in which two humans are accidentally sent to another universe and land in the middle of a story that is being written by a supreme being who has just come out of one of history's longest bouts of writer's block.
The author, Bill Friday, decides that his novel will play out on a giant ball of dirt that he calls The Earth, which, in his language means ‘profit making business venture.’ The presence of the two humans on the barren planet, however, has dramatic and historic consequences for The Earth, and
their existence threatens to ruin, not only the entire plot, but possibly Bill's career as well.
“Clever, insightful, and delightfully deranged, THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS takes our universe and imposes gravity upon it, so it can be turned upside down. It is an enjoyable story about someone who is unfit to be creating life—a cool comeback comedy that competently combines cosmological conjecture, courageous career courses, and coping with creative commons conflicts.”
–Logan J. Hunder, author of WITCHES BE CRAZY
Minister Angela Scott serve as a minister in training at Kingdom Builders International Ministries 16250 Northland Drive Southfield Michigan 48075 Well, God’s way is to call those things that are not as though they are. And because you are made in God’s image, you can also call those things that are not as though they are!
When God wanted to make Abraham a father of many nations, what did He do? He changed the way Abraham talked. At that time, Abraham did not even have a single child from Sarah because she was barren. So how could he become a father of many nations?
God changed the way he talked. How? By changing his name from Abram to Abraham, which means “father of many nations”. (Genesis 17:5)
Just imagine: From then on, every time he met someone, he would say, “Hi, my name is Father Of Many Nations.” Every time dinner was ready, Sarah would call out to Abraham, “Darling…Father Of Many Nations…dinner is ready! Father Of Many Nations…” You can just hear their neighbors saying, “They want a child so much they have gone mad!” But God changed the way Abraham talked so that he called forth what God saw him already blessed with.
in The Bible
Matthew 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Luke 1:35-39 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;
Hebrews 11:1-4 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
1 Corinthians 15 [Full Chapter]
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; ...
4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. 36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”
38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
ON THIS WEEKEND'S SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN WE WILL DISCUSS ANOTHER MIRACLE BABY BORN A MERE FIVE MONTHS BEFORE JESUS. HE WASN'T AN IMMACULATE COMCEPTION, BUT HE WAS BORN TO AN ELDERLY WOMAN WHO WAS BARREN AND BEYOND THE AGE OF MOTHERHOOD, YET SHE CONCEIVED A BABY BOY WHO WOULD PAVE THE WAY AS THE "ADVANCE MAN" FOR THE MINISTRY OF JESUS CHRIST. HE WAS ALSO HIS COUSIN. THAT BABY GREW TO BE JOHN THE BAPTIST, COMMISSIONED BY GOD TO OPEN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO THE LIVING MESSIAH.
WHILE WE DON'T MUCH ABOUT JESUS AND JOHN FOR MUCH OF THEIR LIVES, WE DO KNOW THAT WHEN JESUS WAS IN THE WILDERNESS JOHN WAS SOWING THE SEEDS FOR HIS MESSAGE. A WILD EYED BUT CLEAR SPEAKING EVANGELIST, JOHN LIVED IN THE DESERT AND DEVOTED HIS LIFE TO HIS MISSION FOR THE LIVING CHRIST. AND LIKE SO MANY WHO FOUND THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, HE SUFFERED A BRUTAL DEATH, YET NEVER RELENTED ON HIS MISSION OR RECANTED HIS BELIEFS.
JOIN US FOR A DIFFERENT KIND OF CHRISTMAS MESSAGE, ABOUT A KEY PLAYER BORN AT THE SAME TIME AND THE LINK HE HAD TO THE STORY OF JESUS. WE WILL HAVE A SHORT SCRIPTURE, CHRISTMAS MUSIC, A PRAYER, AND OUR MESSAGE. THE SHOW WILL GO LIVE SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND THEN REMAIN AVAILABLE 24/7.
in The Bible
When we wait upon the Lord, we find ourselves looking to Him to help for some specific need. There is a conscious expectation that He will help us out in that special need. We do not have control over the circumstances and therefore are looking to His provisions, His protection, etc. In each case, though, it is good to notice our special need, recognize that He can help us in that area and then cast our hope in Him.
Waiting upon God is not only biblical but a necessary part of the Christian life for the growing Christian. "Wait for" is an active display of faith in God during impossible situations. Sara had trouble believing God would fulfill his promises, so she plunged ahead with her own solution
Sarah (originally named Sarai) was one of several women in the Bible who were barren. That proved doubly distressing for her because God had promised her husband Abraham that he would be the father of the Jewish nation, with descendants more numerous than the stars in the sky.
After waiting many years, Sarah convinced Abraham to sleep with her handmaiden, Hagar, to produce an heir.
Waiitng is not easy: Abraham & Sara waited for son Isaac: :"God asked Abraham "is anything too hard for me" Gen 18:14
require patience & grace , example of Job
Waiting patiently rewards Job 42:10-17
This edition of Grown Zone Radio focuses on the reasons you are convinced that you don't deserve love. Once you adopt these beliefs (even if, and most likely, unconciously), you sabotage your ability to prepare for, recognize, attract and engage in healthy relationships of honor, esteem and respect. We are taught that we don't deserve love because:
I am divorced. I am unloveable because I am divorced.
I can't bear/don't want children. I am unlovable because I am barren/broken.
I have an STD. I am unloveable because I am ruined/sick.
We accept suffering and mistreatment (or joy and kindness) for the same reason: We are convinced that we deserve them. The truth: There is nothing you can do or be that can disqualify you from healthy love. But until and unless you truly and unconditionally believe that, healthy relationships will elude you, no matter how desperately you seek and pursue them.
You really need to tune in to this edition of Grown Zone Radio. Join us to learn why our book Loving In The Grown Zone is not your typical relationship book about finding the love of your life (or just getting a steady sex partner), but about making healthy choices empower you to claim the love you were created for.
