WHO IS GOD? Many people often wonder what God is like. Have you ever asked the question of what God is like? In this video we talk about an important attribute of God’s character that we find in the Bible. This session specifically helps to answer the question, Does God discipline us? Many people have varying views and ideas about what God is like.

In the bible we can find the answers to many of our questions we have about God. Does God discipline us? In this session, we explore Hebrews chapter 12 where it talks about God’s discipline in our lives. We discover in this chapter the truth that God not only disciplines us but also that His discipline in our lives is a sign of being His children.

What are the Covenants from the Old Testament?

November 30, 2020

Let’s explore some of the places in the bible where God makes a covenant with a person or a group of people. This bible study will primarily look at the old testament covenants. Main Points o   Covenants are a common theme throughout the whole Bible. o   A covenant is simply a way to define the terms of a relationship. It is an agreement from all parties. o   Typically, a covenant has some sort of initiation. Examples include meals, sacrifices, and ceremonies. o   From the very beginning God uses covenants, or promises, to interact with mankind. o   When God makes covenants or promises to His people, He always keeps them. o   Covenants tend to use “if/then” statements. God promises to bless His people, as long as they do as He has asked. Scriptures to Study  Genesis 9:1-17,  Genesis 17:1-8, Exodus 24:3-8, Deuteronomy 11, and 2Samuel 7:4-17 Do you have more questions about a New Covenant reality?

TAKE THE CITY outreaches have been so special to me. I love being able to see the hand of GOD move in peoples lives as they are healed and families restored. GOD cares about every detail of our lives and he reaches the places that only HE can only heal! Its been an honor to see all the teams go out and share the LOVE that GOD has instilled and filled the teams with, and let it pour out to all the community. Having physical needs met also assures all we encounter, the faithfulness of our Father. So many times I have cried seeing what GOD is doing… Being able to see people brought into the KINGDOM and freedom Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body. Is the greatest treasure in my life. I am grateful for TAKE THE CITY allowing me to have front seat and seeing GOD move in peoples lives!
