JEWLS Bible Study Rolling Along...


Trials. We all have experienced them and it is certain we will continue to face various trials in our lifetime.

Psalm 25 provided us encouragement and showed us that life is a difficult journey and that in order for us to walk through the storms and pitfalls that are sure to come our way, we need God.

We need His wisdom to make the right decisions as to which way to go (Psalm 25:4).

When we do go astray, He shows us the way back (Psalm 25:8).

We learned that we need to trust Him; to trust Him we need to know Him!

How do we get to know Him? We must read our bible, pray and ask for understanding.
He is faithful and keeps all His promises (Psalm 25:10). 
On this journey we must keep our eyes “forever on the Lord” (Psalm 25:15).
Next week we will be starting our journey into the book of James which will equip us with practical wisdom for everyday living.

God will reveal to us godly wisdom in trials, temptations, in our friendships and in our speech.

We will see why we must be a doer of the Word and we will learn about humility, patience and prayer. So much in 5 chapters!

We will continue taking this walk through the book of James verse by verse, asking the Lord Jesus Christ to guide us and teach us His ways so that we will be equipped to love and serve Him.

In His love,

-Estella

Let's Go Encourage One Another!


Good morning everyone! I hope everyone is doing well this day.

Time to put on the armour and pick up the sword (the Bible) and get to the assembly of believers so that we can listen to the Word, fellowship with other believers, encourage and be encouraged.

In His strength, let's try to outdo one another in encouraging one another! (Imagine that!)

Sunday is the day when most believers in Jesus Christ can gather together.

Let's take advantage of this opportunity that God our Father has provided for us.

Let us ask the Holy Spirit to fill us to overflowing and give us strength to get up!

I know, I know! Sometimes the armour is heavy and hard to put on but we can do it through His strength! Just call on Him!
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
-Ephesians 6:10-11 (KJV)
BTW, if you are not doing well today, post your prayer request, and we will lift you up in prayer.

In Jesus' Name!

J.O.R.G.E.


Sup everyone! Just want to report that Warrior Generation is going super great despite our meeting time - 5:30am.

One would think that doing anything at 5:30am, on a Saturday, when we should all be sleeping in from a long week of work that we'd be falling asleep.

Not so!

On the contrary, the Word of God is keeping us awake and on fire!

This morning Jorge shared from 2 Timothy 4.

(Although Jorge denies it, me thinks that Jorge has been preaching the Word for years. He's probably a Pastor somewhere and he's just not telling us, lol!)

In all seriousness, the message was great! Thank you Jorge for the encouragement to all of us present. To God be the Glory!

Brothers and sisters in the Lord, pray for these young gents and all of our next generation that's focused in Christ that they would continue to be strong and get stronger in the Lord. Pray, pray, pray!

Brothers and sisters in the Lord, if the Lord is leading you to start up a 'Warrior' group, start one and begin building up our next generation!

Prayer Request Super Spotlight: Pray for Jorge and Monique's son Roman for complete healing from cancer.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. -Ephesians 6:10 NIV
In Jesus' Name!

How to Access Unshackled: A Quick Tutorial


Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well. 

I created a quick tutorial that will guide you on how to access the online radio program Unshackled.

Since a previous post Pacific Garden Mission has updated their website so now it is much easier to access the radio programs.

The tutorial is based on cell phone access but you can also access the program via your laptop, desktop or whatever.

Take a listen to one of these programs and be blessed! Enjoy!

J is for Joseph. that's it...


Warrior Generation: Dustin Under Arm Ur!
Warrior Generation: Zaira and Estella Missing in Action

Sup everyone! I am super excited at what the Lord is doing with these youngsters! I've been walking in Christ for a long, long time and I feel super on fire for Jesus now just as I did the night He saved me.

When you are obedient to God our Father and allow Him to use you, He will ignite a fire in you like you've never felt before.

This morning Joseph encouraged us with a message that he gave from 2 Timothy 3. (This guy is going to be a preacher of the Word some day!) Glory be to God!

A passage that stood out to me was 2 Timothy 3:7 "always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."

Joseph said of this that our prayer should always be that the Lord would bring a fascination to us of Him.

A fascination of awe that the Lord has even allowed us to read about what Jesus said and did; That we can read His Words first hand from the Bible; That we would remember that always, as we read His Word, and not make it a head knowledge thing but a Jesus thing.

Man oh man! That is so true.

Brothers and sisters in the Lord! If you are not already in a small group Bible study, I encourage you to join one. Whether it is discipleship, fellowship, or whatever just do it. If you can't find one in your area, start one!

We all need encouragement from the Lord and He uses these times to build us up. Don't be that lone ranger.

[Side note: Ribael paid us a visit this morning. Good to see you bro!]

Stay strong everyone! In Jesus' name!

-Ruben
