THE TALEH - THE LAMB OF COVERING

 
THE LAMB: A THEME IN GOD'S WORD.
   
     





In the Book of Revelation, the lamb is the only one that is worthy to open the scroll, the only one able to loose the seals.
    The lamb was used at the Feast of Passover as a sacrifice for the firstborn of every house. It had to be without spot or blemish and innocent of all wrongdoing. The nation of Israel was saved by the lamb's blood sprinkled on the doorposts of each dwelling.
     The lamb is symbolic of our Lord Jesus Christ who was given as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind.  As we make preparation for celebrating the Passover Season, it is good to remember what Christ did for us.  
     God came down as an act of love to save a reprobate world; not as He did in the Book of Genesis when He sent the flood of Noah to destroy the creation at that time.  He is love. He is a God of love and forgiveness.  Although we are not worthy as John said, to unleash His sandals, He has compassion on us.  
     The world we live in is just as evil as back in the time of Genesis, but God said He would not destroy it by a flood again.  He is not a man that He should lie.  
     Jesus stands at the door of our hearts asking to gain entrance to our lives.  We must reach out to others and let them know that this salvation is available today, just as it was back when the lamb was offered as a sin covering for all the people who lived, and those who are alive now. We must let the Holy Spirit show us who to be a witness to. 
     I pray that God will soften our hearts so that we can hear our Lord's voice. Jesus said that Greater things we would do than He did, so let us go about doing them.    Amen

JANUARY POST FOR 2017

MESSAGE FOR THE NEW YEAR 2017























    Considering all the bad news we are bombarded with day after day in the news media, I believe the Holy Spirit is comforting us with the knowledge that Jesus is our hope, and that we are safe in His care. 
    Although the winds of life may buffet us, our anchor is not in our circumstances; but in the knowledge that we are children of the King.  He will keep us under His wings as a mother hen protects her chicks if we put our trust in Him.
    When we pass through the fire and the floods of life, we shall not be burned; and the floods shall not overflow us.  
    Do not forsake the assembling with your brothers and sisters in the Lord.  Pray for one another that you may be healed and protected from all the trials of life that come your way.
  As the days grow darker, we can look up to the heavens and say, "Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!"

Winter Park Aglow meets the 2nd. Saturday of each month at Aloma U. Methodist Church,  3045 Aloma Avenue, Winter Park, FL. in Room 24 at 9:30 a.m.  We are blessed with a different, anointed speaker each month.  

We hope that you will join us as we worship and praise the Lord.  The presence of the Holy Spirit faithfully fills us and our meeting.  We are filled, comforted, healed, and delivered by our Heavenly Father thru the power of the Holy Spirit.

God Bless us everyone. Thank you, Lord for your constant love.

A STORMY NEW YEAR 2017

JESUS AND DISCIPLES ON THE STORMY SEA
 The coming year 2017 seems to be a very stormy one.  The sea of United States Citizens are raging. Even the children are let out of school so they can protest the election of Donald Trump.  We know from Scripture that it is God who chooses the leadership of a country. With all odds against Trump, he was declared the new president.
Every day as we turn on the news, we wonder how many people have been killed today. These are truly turbulent times. Our hope is that the Lord Jesus will return, and take us out of the violent storms that are happening all around us.

     Here is a quote from Bonnie Jones, Pineville, NC, taken from her prophecy, A Word for 2017, taken From Steve Shultz, Founder and Publisher of The Elijah List and Breaking Christian News.  http://www.elijahlist.com 

...I believe the Lord is showing me that all ministries have been given equal opportunity to, "Follow Me."  And in faith they began to cross the calm water of the Holy Spirit.  However, when things got tough and it began to storm those of little faith turned back to shore. It was easier to return to past failures than go beyond the veil to see what the Holy Spirit had awaiting them.  They gave up hope and turned back to their safety zone.

   I do not relish looking forward to harrowing times. We have enough problems in our daily lives without contemplating more difficulties in the ministry that God has called us to. But with Jesus in our boat calming the waters, we will overcome the seemingly insurmountable odds that we are facing today, and surely will face in the future. 

   We need to focus on the words of Jesus for us, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.  Matthew 28:19-20 KJV

   REMEMBER, JESUS CALMED THE RAGING SEA, AND THEY ARRIVED SAFELY ASHORE.

Heralding the Birth of Jesus

   The angels proclaimed the "Good News" that a Saviour was born in Bethlehem, to the shepherds who were tending their flocks in the fields.  
   The wonder and awe that surely filled their hearts,  can still fill our hearts today.
   The ultimate gift of the Father was sent down to us wrapped as a wee babe and placed in a manger, and our innermost being can over flow with His love. 
   Today we can still receive miraculous gifts from the Holy Spirit so that we can proclaim the glorious news; that we are not alone.  We can have one, also sent from the Father, to guide us through life. He will be closer than a brother and will fill the emptiness in our lives with the knowledge that the story of Jesus' birth is true. We can know that Jesus was born, that the Heavenly Father loves us, and will give us the Holy Spirit; so that we can be able to fulfill our calling in life.  We can reach out to others with the Gift of God's love to a hurting world. 
   Although it is surely impossible that Jesus was born the 25th. of December, it is a time when we acknowledge His birth and celebrate and worship the "King of Kings and Lord of Lords."

   We at Aglow hope that this will be a special time for you, and that you will feel God's presence in whatever situation you find yourself.  Someday we will meet Him face to face; so until that time, keep the faith and trust in the Lord with all your heart, knowing that He will be your guide if you ask Him to .

November Blog for Winter Park Lighthouse

Revelation 12:11

We are overcomers if we belong to the Kingdom of God and are under the blood of the Lamb.  No weapon formed against us shall prosper.  One righteous child of God shall chase 1000 of his/her enemies.  We pull down strongholds and are victorious over all the wiles of Satan. 

Be brave and courageous for: "Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world."  We are children of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  So, we hold our banners high and will not be defeated.  Death has no victory over us.  What can man do to us? If we live, we will live for Christ, and if we die, we will go to be with Him....To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
I pray that it is "well with your soul this day."

The information for our November meeting is on the flyer shown above.  God is doing a new thing each time we meet; in our hearts and in those who come to the meetings.  We are strengthened and built up in our spirits. The meetings carry us through until the next month when we come together again.  Be encouraged.  Shalom.

October 2016 Featuring Rivers

River of Life
I've Got a River of Life
I've got a river of life flowing out of me!
Makes the lame to walk, and the blind to see.
Opens prison doors, sets the captives free!
I've got a river of life flowing out of me!

Spring up, O well, within my soul!
Spring up, O well, and make me whole!
Spring up, O well, and give to me
That life abundantly.    
Words and Music by Casebolt

Ezekiel 47:1-12 speaks of waters that issued out from under the sanctuary located just north of Jerusalem.  This river will flow south through the city and then divide into two parts. Half will flow into the Mediterranean and half into the Dead Sea. In summer and in winter it will flow and create life where ever it goes. 

Normally a river starts as a much smaller body of water such as creek which will flow together with other creeks until it is emptied into a body of water called a river, and then this river along with other rivers are emptied into a sea.

John 7:38 speaks of rivers of living water that will flow out from the believer in the innermost being of a person.  This is speaking of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit in  which Jesus is the one doing the baptizing. The water of the Holy Spirit bubbles up and overflows the one being baptized.  This incident precedes the Power that is given from this baptism.  As this power flows through the believer, then the song above speaks of what should happen in a person's ministry.

We are to continually be filled with this power of the Holy Spirit which will enable us to manifest the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said that we would be able to do greater things than He did. We need to pray in the Spirit and with the understanding as Apostle Paul instructed us.

I feel that we are on the precipice of such an outpouring of the power of the Holy Spirit that we could not believe it until we see it actually happening.  I want more of the Holy Spirit. I want a closer relationship with the Lord. I want to feel the power of His might, and that is what I pray for all of God's children.    Amen and Amen!

 Winter Park Aglow Community Light House meets the 2nd. Saturday of each month at Aloma U.
