JOHN THE BAPTIST ~ Bible Study Message

November 12, 2017. This page will contain information as to how to start individual home bible studies that can meet weekly or every other week.  I am in the process of ogrinizing study helps and an orginizational guide that will enable individuals and groups to hold bible studies that encourage involvement in receiving from the Holy Spirit; one such study is provided below on this page.  I want to make it clear that the intent and direction of “turn if you will ministry” is the study of the word of God as originally introduced during the ministry of John the Baptist through repentance and the baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire.  One Goal of “turn if you will ministries” is to establish two additional satellite study groups by December 31, 2018.  More information will be forth coming.

Matthew 7:21 ¶ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. [KJV]

As John the Baptist prepared the way, the Fore Runner, for the ministry of Jesus so also are we called.  A great book written by John Bevere called “Driven by Eternity” emphesises topics such as the eternal, the eternal home of the dead, the great falling away, heaven, the judgement seat of Christ.  John Bevere pulls no pouches in revealing the truth of scripture as it applies directly to each individual who reads the book that all refer to as the Holy Bible.  Understand that there are scripture verses in the Bible that deal with people walking away from Jesus and the kingdom of God who will hear the words of Matthew 7:21-23 spoken to them; and what a great disappointment that will be to know that there was ample time while on earth to do the will of God and to hear his voice of instruction like in Zechariah 3:7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by. [KJV]

It must must be clearly understood that the authors of the Holy Scriptures wrote to believers about falling away from God.  Take for example Matthew 7:21-23, this simple little passage of scripture holds many deep truths of God that all that call themselves “Christians” should read with trembling and fear and ask “which of the two groups am I?” We know according to John 3:3-5 that Jesus declares that to enter into the kingdom of God and to see the kingdom of God that one must be born again.  Further it must be understood that to cast out a demon one must use the name of Jesus with authority; yet we see people very disappointed when commanded to depart from the presence of Jesus because He never knew them.  He goes on to say that the ones that do the will of His Father will enter into the kingdom of God.  This should take us back to Zechariah 3:7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by. [KJV]

If nothing else read the book “Driven by Eternity” by John Bevere and decide for your self.

Hold Bible Studies: every week or every other week

7:30 P.M. The times utilized in this study are examples and can be flexible allowing ample opportunity for fulfillment of content.

7:15-7:45 Prayer: during this time all that wish to attend this meeting should be in prayer to God. This should occur while still in transit so that when you arrive to the meeting you will already be in prayer. Upon arrival come in take your seat and continue to pray.

7:45-8:15 Bible study session: this will be the main bible study lesson and this is the period that any guest speakers will present God’s message.

7:45-8:00 Transition period: during this period we will be moving from the bible study to the break out group, any needed breaks should be taken at this time.

8:30 Break out session: during this period attendees will assemble into small groups and develop a short presentation. Suggestions include testimonies, bible lesson and revelation from the Holy Ghost.

Followed by…

Group presentations: time for presentation will depend upon the number of groups. The main focus of this session is to give out that information that was received during the (break-out session) so that all in attendance will exercise in expecting that Jesus will speak to you and also enable you to give out with confidence that which he has given you. Freely received freely given.

Conclusion: just a few hours a week that is dedicated to The Lord Jesus Christ in receiving inspiration from the Holy Ghost and in turn sharing that same information with others as a means to build confidence in ones self that all are worthy to give and receive from Jesus Christ.
