Thursday Night Bible Study Verse of the Week



Join us in memorizing the verse of the week.

"Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?"
-1 Corinthians 1:20 NKJV


Write the verse on a index card or type it in your phone. Take a peek at it a few times a day. Before you know it you'll have it etched within the "tablet of your heart".

Stay Strong!

satan: ready to trash us up




"We must be arrayed in the whole armor of God...." "Satan today works by cunning craftiness (Eph. 4:14), or, as it might be rendered, “wily error,” to deceive those who do not know their Bibles and are not subject to the Word."

WARRIOR Generation in Action!



Warrior Gen's mission is to prepare this gen to lead the next gen in becoming motivated and strong in our Lord Jesus. This means teaching our next generation the Word of God in its entirety and simplicity and then the application of it.


As part of teaching the application of His Word, we must apply it ourselves so each person in the group will be leading a mission trip.

This past Saturday (March 19, 2016), Gabriel led the group on a mission trip to Santa Monica. He planned the entire trip from beginning to end. Great job Gabriel!

He called the mission a prayer walk such that we would go out and walk the streets of Santa Monica and pray for people in the name of Jesus.

We wore shirts that say Need Prayer? This drew people's attention. Many were very receptive, and surprisingly only one person mocked, but that's ok. The Lord has a plan even for that person.

The trip was a day long event and very successful. Thank you Jesus and all Glory be to Him.

We met at 0500 for Bible study. Joseph led and taught the study. Great job Joseph. After that, we took off. We arrived at Santa Monica around 1030, prayed, prepared and went into action.

There were a lot of great moments, but there was one that really touched me. It happened when we had called it a day and began walking off the pier.

Joseph, Jorge and I started our walk off the pier and about a minute in I noticed that Jorge was not with us so we began walking back to see where he was at. When we saw him, he was in conversation with a family so Joseph and I stayed back and waited.

When the family left Jorge and he came over to us he told us that the mother of the young girl came over to him and said the young girl had been worried about going up to him to ask for prayer.

She wanted to ask Jorge if he would pray for her because she was going off to college soon. That was really cool, BUT! They said that seeing what Jorge was doing encouraged them to get back into reading their Bible again. Super awesome! 


Brothers and sisters in Christ! That's what its all about. In serving Jesus, you never know what your actions in Christ are going to bring forth. 

Get into action! Don't wait. Remember that Jesus equals action.

Get Strong! Stay Strong! To God be the Glory!

-Ruben



JESUS = ACTION!


“And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions."

-Joel 2:28 NKJV


Jesus people! It is our time, today. We can call on the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us as we travel through this land. 

The location He has placed you and me is also the place He has set us to be a light unto those who don't know Him.

Let us take advantage of this great opportunity to be led by the Holy Spirit that we may shine in this dark place.

In Jesus' Name!

Know Your Bible, Know Your Saviour


“The better I know my Bible, the more intelligently I can pray. I certainly need to learn all I can of the Book by careful, diligent study. 


But I must not stop there. I must know my Bible practically. 

I am to “know the truth,” but I must also “walk in the truth.” 

In fact, I do not really know any truth unless I walk in it. 

If ignorant of the Word of God, I am likely to pray for many things that are not in harmony with the Lord’s mind-things that are not suited to the dispensation (time period) in which we live, or that would not be helpful to my spiritual progress, or honoring to God. 

The better I know my Bible, and the more careful I am to obey its precepts, the better I shall be able to pray.”

Do NOT be Discouraged! Keep Fighting On!


But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint. -Isaiah 40:31


Although the battle has already been won, the trials of life hit us like a runaway train. This makes us go into disarray as we fall apart and begin to lose focus on our Lord Jesus.

We start becoming weary and also begin to lose strength.

Thank God that we have been provided with a book filled with encouragement, His Bible. His message to us.

Isaiah says that if we wait on the Lord, our Heavenly Father will instill in us renewed strength. He will provide us with the spiritual nourishment that we need to keep on trekking.

The strength He provides is crazy radical and comes with a peace that surpasses all understanding.

Isaiah also says that along with this renewed strength we will mount up with wings like eagles. No, its not like when you drink a Red Bull you all of a sudden grow wings ;) 

Isaiah is speaking of the characteristics of the eagle. They are awesome. Do a bit of research on them and you'll see.

Isaiah says we will be able to run and not tire. That's crazy, but true. The more we wait on the Lord, the more strength we will receive to keep us running the spiritual race. 

Additionally, you can take a pause from running and walk for a very, very long time and you won't faint. 

Remember, this is a heart thing. Accept and apply His Word and you will do well.

Thank you Jesus for blessing us with all that we need to stay in the battle until we see You one day!

Stay Strong brothers and sisters!

-Ruben
