New Bible Study/Reading Blog Posts! 7/26/2016

On Monday, we will be beginning, God willing, a new thing here at Christian Hope Today.

We will be sending you a daily email, Monday through Friday, of bible readings for that day.

This is a special Bible reading system that will help you overcome the most common barriers to daily Bible reading. Many Christians want to read the Bible through in a year but find that with most Bible reading schedules they get behind and can never catch up. So they quit. This plan is different. It defeats discouragement and falling behind by being extremely flexible. Each week contains only five readings, allowing you to miss a day, or catch up. Read both the Old and New Testament assignments for each day and complete the entire Bible in one year. Or, read the New Testament readings for each day and finish the New Testament in a year. Either way, with this plan you can reach your goal of studying the Bible each day. If you do miss a day and are unable to catch up, just let it go, you will catch it again next time! Be free! It is more important to get Word into your Spirit every day than come under condemnation, and this new series of blog posts aims to help you do that.

Each email will contain the list for the whole week, just in case email is slow or there is some problem with sending out the daily blog post.

We know we are starting late in the year, but begin it we shall!

There are readings for fifty weeks in a year, leaving the last two weeks of December to catch up.

We recommend that you try to read at a specific time each day, so that a regular habit of reading will be established. Also, many find it helpful to keep a notebook handy in which to jot down ideas, applications of scripture, questions for later study, items to pray for, etc. A notebook helps take time with the Word of God into the realm of serious study, rather than simple reading.

HOW THE BIBLE READINGS ARE ARRANGED

In this plan you will be reading the Bible in chronological order, as nearly as possible, because this greatly enhances comprehension. In the Old Testament this is not so difficult to arrange, with the exceptions of Job and Psalms. We have included the works of the prophets in their proper place in the historical narrative of God’s people, Israel. Duplicate accounts are often included in a single day’s reading. The Psalms have been inserted at scattered points throughout the year, with every effort made to place appropriate Psalms with passages that they seem to “fit.”

In the New Testament you will begin with Luke and Acts, followed by the epistles. The other Gospels will be periodically included so that you are constantly exposed to Jesus Christ, even as you read of His will for His church. Lastly, you will read the book of Revelation.

God’s blessings rest with those who will read, understand, and live by His Word. May this guide help you to that noble end.

“Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path” (Psalms 119:105).

If you want to sign up to get these emails in your inbox be sure to follow this blog by entering your email in the upper right on the blog where it says email subscription.

Blessings,

Kath

Hope Notes – Be careful which side you are on – July 21, 2016

Rev 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Note to self:

Never be an accuser of the brethren. I do not want to side with the adversary (satan). I need to watch for gossip, venting or general nonsense in my thoughts and words accusing the brethren. Participating in this allows a lot of things to be stolen in my life.  Being an accuser of the brethren allows doors to be opened to allow in all the things the devil does. He kills, steals and destroys.

Siding with the devil, there is no excuse. Nope, none!

YES!! Yes He does!

He never sends you to anything HE can’t handle, though!!

Glory to GOD! It’s time to shout!

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. – 2 Corinthians 2:14

AIRPLANES AND ABOMINATIONS BY LISA BEVERE

I wish I could read this out loud to each and everyone who needs it.

I need it on a regular basis.

Lisa Bevere put it together beautifully, so I am just linking to her blog for you to read.. and reread and reread.. Print it out, put it in your bible.. and read it to me when I need it, too!

The world needs your prayers more than it needs your opinions.

As some of you know the blue line is very personal to me.
I refuse to walk in fear, I know my son is where he is supposed to be, directly in God’s will, hidden in the secret place of the Most High.
Fear will just cause a door to be open to harm and destruction. So I stand against it with everything I’ve got and won’t give it an inch.

Some police officers are steeped in and attacked by fear because of stuff around them happening and it is causing them to react quickly and badly in situations and bring harm to others. It is a horrible thing. I make no excuse for their behavior, but I know most of them are not this way. I also know the peace officers protecting the protesters last night when they were gunned down were not this way.

We *must* pray for our police officers and against the spirit of fear that attacks them daily on their jobs.

I get the protests and their right to them but I really feel it is important that people realize that this wasn’t the protesters that killed 5 cops last night in Dallas. This was sniper thugs up on the roofs while the cops tried to protect the protesters. That to me is not revenge. These criminals ruined what the protesters were trying to accomplish.

Our battle is not with flesh and blood, we must stand against this wicked spirits of murder, division and other horrible things having their way in this country. And may justice be served now and when they stand before the only Judge that matters later.

The world needs your prayers more than it needs your opinions.

Prayer request from Billye Brim

Received this via email and I feel it is very important, so I am sharing it here.

Billye Brim Blog
The Parsonage
April 18, 2016
During Sunday prayer yesterday, as we prayed in the Spirit, I found myself saying “Friday. Friday” Today we received something from a person of the Spirit of God.
So, without going into all the details.
PLEASE PRAY ABOUT FRIDAY, APRIL 22.
That day is Erev Pesach, or the night of the Seder meal as Pesach begins.
The indication of the alert is that Islamic militants have evil plans for that date.
You know what to do.
You know to use your authority in your area.
You know to use Hebrews 4:13
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
You know to pray in the Spirit and let God use you.
I declare that these evil plans will come to naught.
Thank you, WWP’s, and all who will take up this assignment.
Love in Him,
Billye Brim

Don’t Fret!

Would you do something for me? Go read Psalm 37 before you continue reading here, please. Meet me back here when you’re done. Oh—and bring your Bible back here with you too.

Good? Okay! Let’s move on.

“Do not fret…” (v.1)

I remember reading this Psalm about a month ago and what echoed in my heart by the time I finished reading was this:

Don’t fret! Trust God and take up His attitude about the problem. He laughs!

He doesn’t sit up in heaven wringing His hands and fussing to Jesus about what They’re going to do about it. Nope! He laughs!

The Lord laughs at him, for He sees that his day is coming.” (v. 13)

Another thing I find beautiful about this Psalm is that it gives us steps to take:

  • Don’t fret or be envious (v.1—see also Philippians 4:1-9)
  • Trust God and show your trust by doing good (v.3)
  • Delight yourself in Him (v.4—and He will give you the desires of your heart)
  • Commit your way to Him (v.5—and He will bring it to pass)
  • Rest in Him! (v.7)
  • Oh yeah, don’t fret! (v.7)
  • Cease from anger and forsake wrath (v.8)
  • And, just in case you forgot—don’t fret! And love the addition here: “it only causes harm” (v.8)

Whenever worry launches itself in your face, do yourself a favor: LAUGH. I don’t care if you don’t feel like it—just do it! There is no problem you could have that is even remotely large enough to sway your Daddy, okay?

Once you’ve had a good laugh, go read this gem by Billye Brim; it covers all of the steps Psalm 37 gives us, but through Philippians 4:6-8.

Until later!

– Tammy

My Sheep Hear My Voice – Keith Moore

I am watching this series right now taught by Keith Moore (on the Roku channel, but you can download it free in video or audio formats at the link below).
It has vital, vital information for believers in the day we are living in.
If you believe God is “leading you” by any other way than the Holy Spirit, (events? tragedies? weather events? mistakes? feelings? any other sacred religious cows?) you are wrong and need to find out what the Word says because that is our only foundation and the only sure thing to stand on in these days.
You need ears to hear..

Enjoy and Be blessed.

Upcoming U.S. Elections 2016… – Billye Brim

I got this today in e-mail and had to share it immediately, it is an email/blog post from Billye Brim.

Billye Brim Blog March 11, 2016

From the Parsonage
 
My granddaughter, Kylie, and her husband have been attending Mark Hankins minister’s conference. She emailed me this anointed prayer given through Kenneth E Hagin in 1983 before the election of 1984.  They have been praying it every day and the Lord has been powerfully anointing their prayer.

 
I offer it here for you to pray this prayer in unity with hundreds, if not thousands, of others. 
 
We shall pray it next Sunday at our Three O’clock Prayer Service.
We shall pray it next Wednesday at our Noon Live Streamed Prayer Service.
We shall pray it in our Authority Seminar in Norman, Oklahoma.
And I intend to pray it every day.
 
Kenneth E. Hagin prayed the following at a prayer meeting held on the Rhema Campus on January 31, 1983.
You follow me and let’s agree:
Heavenly Father,
We come again today.
We come in the Name of Jesus – not our name, not our power, not our holiness, not even our goodness – but we come in the Name of Jesus, washed in His blood, robed in His righteousness.
We come because You told us to come. You said in Your Holy Word for us to come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain help and grace to help in the time of need. Thank You, Father. We are exhorted in Your Word to pray, to intercede, to supplicate, and to give thanks for ALL who are in authority, that Christians-that believers-everywhere may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
We pray for our leaders – our President, every member of Congress, the Supreme Court, the President’s Cabinet, everyone that is in authority – that divine wisdom and grace will be given unto them. And direction will be given unto them.
We come against the powers of darkness, the forces of evil that would try to dominate and rule in our own nation. We rise up against that darkness. We rise up against those spirits and dispel the darkness. In the Name of Jesus, we command the devil to take his hand OFF of the political scene of our nation. We pray for every politician, everyone that’s in office, that they’ll not be so concerned about politics, that they’ll not be so party conscious, but that they’ll be concerned about our nation as a whole – and above all, put God first.
We come against the powers of darkness, the forces of evil, the demons of hell that would endeavor to dominate the financial scene of our nation. We pray for the economy of our nation.
We pray about the unemployed. We pray that the economy will be turned around, and that we will be prosperous as a whole – as a nation – to continue to carry the Gospel around the world. We command the devil and all of his cohorts: Take your hand OFF of the financial scene of our nation.
We come against the powers of darkness, the forces of evil that would endeavor to dominate the domestic scene of our nation. We command you, Satan, and all of your cohorts: Take your hand OFF the domestic scene of our nation. May there be peace. May there be tranquility. May there be understanding from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Canadian border. [In Alaska and Hawaii].
We sweep the air clean from demons – powers of evil that would hinder, that would dominate. In the Name of Jesus!
We come against all forces that are wrong. And, Father, we pray with our understanding as best we know how. We’re instructed to do so. Yet we sense in our spirit that our spirits have not prayed as they would like. We remember that Paul said that if I pray in an unknown tongue, MY spirit prayeth, MY spirit, by the Holy Spirit within me prayeth. So the Great, Mighty Spirit of God dwells in us. He is our Helper. He is our Counselor, our Advocate. He is our Intercessor. He is our Standby. He will help us.
We trust Him to help us pray in this area and about our nation, and the leaders, and all that are in authority. Help us to pray as we ought to pray, and about things that we don’t even know to pray concerning the upcoming election. We take authority over every stronghold that would endeavor to hinder the process of the right person being elected to lead our country. We boldly proclaim that Your will shall be accomplished.
He will give us utterance. And we will pray and intercede and give thanks in the Spirit.
