Biblical Unity… 1 5/5 (1)

ARC Thursday Bible Study February 27, 2020 with Pastor Edwards was about Biblical Unity. The main Scripture came from Phil 3:7-11 KJV.

As Pastor Edwards communicated with the Church, he said Unity is the same as Oneness. There is security in Unity. And to have the Holy and have the Power of the Holy Ghost are two different things. Because living in and by the Power of the Holy Ghost is different.

If we are not in Unity with God, we will not be in Unity with the Body of Christ (i.e. the Church Fellowship). Being in disunity does not mean we are going to hell. There are multiple enemies of Unity. Some include weariness, extreme tiredness, fatigue and others. Any thing that’s divided brings insecurity. But the Church of this time in 2020 is to be greater than the Church of the past in old Biblical days from the Bible.

If we are content with not being unified, our new Fellowship Members of the Church will see, know, think and do likewise. When we get to Church and pray, we are to get to or be going towards the person in Christ (Spiritually speaking) that we have never been. We are to grow in Christ.

We need to use the flow and Power of the Holy Ghost to the purpose of God. What God does is perfect. What we do with what God does is what will make the difference in our life, Unity and Fellowship with God. Therefore, this is important: That I may know Him in the Power, and the Resurrection, and the Fellowship of His suffering.

Just because we are suffering does not mean we are in the Fellowship of His suffering. On this point, we can read Job’s Story in the Old Testament, his Fellowship with God and the Fellowship of His suffering – to a certain extent. When we are suffering the most, if we are not careful we can dis-fellowship ourselves from the Fellowship with God. James 1:3-4 KJV says “Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”

We need to start taking things a little more serious as the end of days as mentioned in the Bible approaches. We can read 2 Timothy 3 in the Bible.

More on Integrity from ARC Thursday Bible Study 1 5/5 (1)

ARC Thursday Bible Study November 7, 2019 was about more of “Integrity” with sister Edwards, Pastor Edwards and ARC Saints plus our Guests. Some of the Scriptures from the Bible Study include: Prov 23:7 and Gen 3:11-13.

During her Presentation, sister Edwards reminded us that we become what we consistently think about (good or bad thoughts). And living honestly require that:

We must believe God is good…believe in the goodness of God. There will be no change in us if we doubt the goodness of God.

We should accept responsibility for our behavior. For example, Adam blamed Eve for eating from the tree he should not have eaten. See Gen 3:11-13.

We must please God. We please God by obeying God and making Godly ethical decisions and choices to live in God’s confinement.

Sister Edwards also mentioned that the character of a Godly person is marked by integrity and honesty. We should speak the truth and in accordance with the word of God. Our testimony is what our life say to others.

And Pastor Edwards mentioned (among many other things) that when you (i.e. we) are “double minded” you (i.e. we) are unstable in all aspects of our life.

ARC Thursday Bible Study November 14, 2019 on Integrity: Pleasing God with sister Edwards and ARC Saints was a blessing. We are sorry Pastor Edwards is not well and was absent. But he would have pleased with ARC Saints (brothers and sisters alike) interactive participation…most of the time.

In her re-cap of last week lesson, sister Edwards mentioned again that…
Living honestly require that: We must believe in the goodness of God. We should accept responsibility for our behavior. For example in the Biblical Story of Adam and Eve – Adam blamed Eve for his sin against God than taking the blame/responsibility. We please God by obeying God and making Godly ethical decisions and choices. And that the character of a Godly person is marked by integrity and honesty. We should speak the truth.

Sister Edwards mentioned tonight (among other things) that every path we take in our life will make us have a choice in life to choose to please God or otherwise. And habits (good or bad) are formed by doing the same thing over and over again (i.e. repeatedly) for 21 or more days. We need good Godly habits to please God.

Some of the initial discussion was centered around young sisters, their parents, growing up in Church and this world. Sister Edwards and a good number of ARC Sisters who were present, got into an honest discussion about clothes and bring up “young girls” in the present worldly environment. During this time, more listening was done than writing as sister Edwards allowed everyone to express his/her views or experience on this and other related “young girls” matters via sister Edwards discussion on the general topic of integrity and pleasing God.

I cannot remember if we got into specific Scriptures. But sister Edwards did refer to a number of Bible Characters and Story such as David, Job and Lucifer (i.e. satan and how we are not to be like him).

Integrity continued…ARC Thursday Bible Study 1 5/5 (1)

ARC Thursday Bible Study October 24, 2019 with sister Edwards, Pastor Edwards and ARC Saints. The topic on Integrity continued. Some of the Scriptures mentioned during the Presentation are: Phil 4:8 (concerning our minds) Matt 7:12 (about the Golden Rule of Life) 1 Peter 1:13-15 and read up to verse 19 (in reference to our Life in Christ) plus Col 3:17 and verses 23-24 KJV.

As sister Edwards continued on the topic, she said if we live with the full Armour of God , we are living in Integrity as well. Good habits such as our Prayer Life (praying) Bible Reading and the Study of the word of God, among other things, are important habits as good habits that are essential for the success of our Spiritual Life. Good Spiritual Habits will promote Devotion to the Lord.

And Pastor Edwards did say to us that the Holy Ghost legislates what integrity is. That is, we do not decide that on our own. The Spirit of God and the word of God lead and direct us into true Biblical Integrity.

Integrity in our Lifestyle…ARC Thursday Bible Study 1 5/5 (1)

ARC Thursday Bible Study Oct 17, 2019 with sister Edwards, Pastor Edwards and ARC Saints…Integrity in our Lifestyle (Jeremiah 18:1-4 and up to verse 9 as read.)

As sister Edwards presented, she emphasized the important point that every day we are creating a life for the better or worse. We are creating that from what we do. Therefore, we have to give up bad habits. That is not easy. But it can be done. Habits can be good, uplifting and positive, or not so good. But good habits are important for our Spiritual and secular life…lifestyle.

Pastor Edwards added that we must not compromise or squander the Gift of God (i.e. our Salvation) through bad habits and/or sin.

ARC Bible Study Part 4 of the topic on Integrity 1 5/5 (1)

ARC Thursday Bible Study Oct 10, 2019 with sister Edwards, Pastor Edwards and ARC Saints/Families was a continuation (Part 4) of the topic on “Integrity.” Some of the Scriptures mentioned included: Job 1:20-21, Job 2:9-10, John 17:17, 1 Peter 1:23-25, 1 Thess 5:23-24 and others.

From Job’s Life in the Bible for our example on the topic of integrity, sister Edwards reminded us that Job never gave up on God or lose his integrity throughout his entire ordeal as recorded in the Bible. Job did not rebel against God. He still kept the truth about who God is, what he knows and what was happening to him and his family by trusting God. And as sister Edwards said, we are to rebel against evil. We are not to rebel against God. Job did not rebel against God.

One of the many other points mentioned by sister Edwards in her Presentation was the question: How do we retain our integrity as born again Christians? The answer can be found from the Scriptures at John 17:17, 1 Peter 1:23-25, and 1 Thess 5:23-24 among others. To be sanctified is to be holy. And our source of rebirth with sanctification comes from God through the Holy Ghost with Integrity…in God.

Apart from Job’s Life, sister Edwards also referred to Joseph’s Life Story as another good example of integrity at work in the Bible. Joseph went from being betrayed by his own family (i.e. his brothers) to the pit, to being sold, to being accused, to being imprisoned and more, but still kept his integrity as he responded to the situations and God.

And as sister Edwards said, life will shove all kinds of dirt and challenges/trials at us to try and bury us. But we can choose to die or keep our worship going while coming out of those situations. We can stay in the worship spirit in our trials and come out of them rising higher and higher in God and with God.

During the Bible Study tonight, Pastor Edwards also said true integrity does not complain. Job’s edge was really his integrity. Integrity will lead us to God and the word of God…the true word of God.

“Integrity” Part 3 at ARC Bible Study 1 5/5 (1)

ARC Thursday Bible Study Oct 3, 2019 was about Part 3 of the Topic on “Integrity” with sister Edwards, Pastor Edwards and ARC Saints/Guests. Some of the Scriptures mentioned by sister Edwards in the Presentation were Luke 6:46, John 13:17, James 2:26, Job 1:1, Job 1:8 among others.

As she continued the topic, we were reminded that Integrity has a lot to do with what’s in our hearts because that will eventually come out of our mouths. From the mind, the heart, the mouth then into our walk with God and therefore our lifestyle we will see integrity or otherwise.

Integrity definition is about incorruptibility, soundness and completeness in our life. See Luke 6:46. We have to do the things God says we are to do.

And as sister Edwards also said, for integrity to be true, appropriate actions must follow good intentions. See John 13:17 and James 2:26. And the calling of the Lord in our life is important. But we need to obey God and be humble in and during the process. See Job 1:1 for how Moses and others saw Job and his relationship with integrity to God. See Job 1:8 about how God saw that as well.

Sister Edwards also mentioned that those with integrity live in transparent houses. Everyone knows who they are at all times and every where they go and live (i.e. interact with others) in this world.

Integrity – ARC Thursday Bible Study Sept-19-2019 1 5/5 (1)

ARC Thursday Bible Study Sept-19-2019 with sister Edwards looked at Integrity with some introduction about the Character Traits of Jesus. And our character is often seen as how people see or perceive one to be. It’s sometimes misunderstood or misinterpreted. And a good reputation is hard (but not impossible) to gain back if it’s damaged by others. Our integrity in all areas of our life is essential, as Pastor Edwards said.

As sister Edwards mentioned tonight, to strive to live a life of integrity is one of the most important character features anyone can have. A character trait without integrity will not last if it’s not done within the context of the Bible.

To live a life full of integrity, we need to also be humble, show empathy in helping to lift someone up while being humble, show goodness, have authenticity or being genuine, among other things. We need to have honesty with integrity in our minds and have that all day long. What’s in our minds will become our actions and hence our lifestyle.

Perfection in the Bible 1 No ratings yet.

At ARC Thursday Bible Study today 8/22/2019 Pastor Edwards mentioned that perfection in the Bible is about God working through us via the Holy Ghost, and in our obedience to the leading of the Spirit. Our busy physical life has a way of sucking away our Spirituality.

In a religious mood, repentance does not and will not work as biblically required from and in the Bible. When we truly repent, God gives us a new true heart not to do again and again, the sin from the repentance that was done. And we are to be careful about intentional and deliberate sin (or disobedience to God’s word) in our life.
