4 Weddings & a Funeral .... Saving the best for Last .. 1/24/16

Sunday School Summary . Psalm 77:11 . Tehillim 11 . Acts 2 . John 9 . Matthew 15 . Matthew 5 . Luke 4 . John 2. Miracles . Health . Gift . Wedding in Cana .



Monday - January 18, 2016 - The Mighty Deeds of God - Psalm/Tehillim 77:11-15

The victory which the psalmist had - The psalmist calls to mine all God's great deeds on behalf of his people. To encourage the psalmist he recalls God's mighty work in the past.


Tuesday - January 19, 2016 - The Resurrected Messiah - Acts 2:22-28

Peter's sermon - The sermon evokes immediate response. Definite plan; God raised Jesus up -- Peter's sermon at Pentecost.


Wednesday - January 20, 2016 - The Gift of Sight - John 9:1-11

The man that was born blind restoreth to sight - Jesus spit on the ground and told the man to go wash in the pool of Siloam. Jesus is the light of the world. The blind man is not suffering because of his parents nor his sins. There are times when God allows suffering for a purpose. And he brings good out of it, for the individual himself. The man that was born blind restoreth to sight. Spit was considered to have medicine value. 'sent' a symbol of Jesus 'sent' from God to give light. Healing of the man born blind.


Thursday - January 21, 2016 - The Gift of Health -Matthew 15: 29-38

Jesus healed the daughter of the woman of Canaan, and other great multitudes, and with 7 loaves & a few little fishes feedeth 4,000 men, beside women and children. The Canaanite woman; further healings; 4,000 fed. The woman though a Gentile, speaks to Jesus as the Jewish Messiah. Healings. Canaan territory between the Mediterrean Sea and the Jordan River reaching from the brook of Egypt to the area around in Syria or to the Euphrates. Canaan means different things at different times.


Friday - January 22, 2016 - The Clean Gift - Matthew 5: 22 - 26

Sin begins in the mind & the will. That is where it must be rooted out. Fool should be apostate - meaning that any man who calls another an outcast of God is in danger of being cast out himself. Sacrifice offered by an individual was of no value if he had not put right an offence committed against a fellowman. True understanding of the Law. Jesus taught God's way to Live.


Saturday - January 23, 2016 - The Healing Mission of Jesus - Luke 4: 16-24

The people of Nazareth admire Jesus gracious words. Teaching & Healing in Galilee. Jesus' custom was not merely to worship in the synagogue but to present HIS message there. The book was a scroll, which Jesus unrolled. The popular reaction became increasingly hostile as the magnitude of Jesus' message sank home.

According to the Old Testament, foreigners sometimes knew God's help when Israel did not. Anyone might be invited to take part in the service of prayers, readings and sermon. The leader stood to pray and read from the scrolls, sat down to teach. Jesus Accepted Messianic Mission & Faced Rejection.


Sunday - January 24, 2016 - A Wedding in Cana - John 2: 1-12

Christ turneth water into wine; departed into Capernaum, and to Jerusalem. Jesus' first miracle has a homely setting. The wedding festivites lasted several days, & when the wine ran out the bridegroom must have embarrassed.

First of seven signs selected by John. All have a purpose they actively support the claims Jesus made, & are intended to lead to faith. Here the new wine of the Gospel is contrasted with the water of the old faith. Jesus had come to bring something really new. Cana: Nathanael's home town; a few miles north-east of Nazareth. Woman: a term of solemn & respectful address; The hour of Jesus' self-disclosure was determined by God, not by Mary's desires. His final manifestation was at the cross. Rites of purification were ceremonial, not hygienic. Jesus' miracles were not wonders to astound, but signs pointing to HIS glory (God's presence in HIM).

Jesus Ministry in the "Cana Cycle" - Jesus first sign at the Wedding in Cana.


Matthew 5:12-16 - Devotional Reading 'declaring who are blessed, who are the salt of the earth, the light of the world, the city on an hill, the candle. Where tree happiness lies. The witness of the disciples. Jesus taught God's Way to Live.

2007 ... Abraham & Hagar Have a Son Ishmael ... Sunday School Lesson

One of my 2007 Writings, that is at a couple other another sites....

What season are we in?...And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows.

GOD has a plan....GOD Is In Total Control.

God keeps HIS promises. God is All Powerful, HE Knows All Things, Sees ALL Things.

9-23-07 Sunday School Lesson: Genesis 21:9-21

Sharing my sunday school notes (Read Genesis 21:9-21)

9-30-07 Lesson (Next Week) "Issac & Rebekah" Genesis 24:34-40, 42-45, 48

Genesis 21:12-13 "God said unto Abraham....also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed."

I want you to keep your mind on this but this was not in my sunday school book for some reason my mind went to this --- Acts 2:8-11, 16, 20, 38, 41, 42 - The Pentecostal Beginning, Realized. What season are we in? Now I have never been to seminary nor theology school but this is my thought.

Genesis 21:9-21

Verses 9, 10, 11, 12, 20, 21 --- OTHER Nations, Offshoots of The Abrahamic Stock, Ishmaelites


(My understanding the Arabs are from Ishmael & Abraham)

And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian (Genesis 16:1) which she had born unto Abraham(Genesis 16:15)

Abraham was a man of faith. Abraham was a father of two sons at this time by two different women and they were all living in the same dwelling place - home.

Was it and is it possible for two women that have had a child by the same man to dwell - live in peace all under the same roof with one man? Abraham was grievous when he had to send his son, Ishmael away.





Verse 14 -- THE FAMILY, Polygamy (more than one wife or husband at the same time) & Concubinage (to dwell or live together) Practised Trouble From It

And Abraham rose up ...... early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: (John 8:35) and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness in Beer-sheba.










Abraham was kind for he prepared water and bread for Hagar and his son before sending them away from his dwelling place. This is how men should care for their child(children) making preparations for them.

Beer-shea .......... Genesis 21:14 Hagar was relieved there, I Kings 19:3 Elijah flees there

Verses 15, 16 -- THE FAMILY, Family Affections, Parent & Children, Love to Children

And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast her child under the shrubs.

And she went, and sat her down over against him.....a good way off, as it were a bowshoot, for she said, Let me not see the death of the child.....And she sat over against him, and lifted up her voice, and wept.

Food for thought -- Was she praying for her child? What mother, what good mother would not have been praying for their child hoping that they would be heard? Was her cry heard?

Verse 17 -- Angels, The Angel of The LORD, OR, OF God, Instances of HIS Appearing

And God heard the voice of the lad; (Exodus 3:7) and the angel of God....called to Hagar....out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not, for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.

God ask Hagar what aileth thee...God called her by name. God told her not to fear for he had heard the lad -- the lad was her son.

Food for thought -- What was Moses? Do you remember what Moses calling was?

Exodus 3:7 --- The Hebrews, ISRAEL in Egypt, God Remembers HIS Covenant

And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows.

Verse 18 -- Angels, The ANGEL Of The LORD, OR, OF God, Utters Predictions

Arise,.....lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation (Genesis 21:13)

him - Ishmael

Verse 19 -- MIRACLES, Supernatural Bodily Gifts, Gifts of Bodily Vision

And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad a drink.

Food for thought --- Pray, Pray seriously, Believe, ACTION "ASK, SEEK, KNOCK"

Genesis 25:12-17

Verses 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 --- Descendants of Ishmael

Verse 16 -- 12 princes according to their nations

Verse 17 -- Other Nations, Ishmaelites, Ishmael lived 137 years
