Romans 036: Romans Chapter 1 - When We Proclaim our Faith What is There to Proclaim?
Welcome To BARAH MINISTRIES
a Christian Church
And He (the Lord Jesus Christ) summoned the crowd (along) with His disciples (technical students), and said to them (both), “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his Cross and (keep on) follow(ing) Me.”
“For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and (for) the gospel’s (sake) will save it.”
“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?//For what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”
Romans Chapter 1- When We Proclaim our Faith, What is There to Proclaim?
Romans, Chapter 1, Verses 8 to 15
Paul’s Prayer for the Purpose of his Ministry
First, I, Paul, thank God the Father in prayer through Jesus Christ’s name for all you believers in Rome, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world…throughout the entire Roman Empire.
A mental power given to each person at physical birth as a gift from a gracious God, which through freedom of choice, allows you to place your absolute confidence in a person, a place, or a thing…an active power which, when placed in God, offers an uncompromising inner assurance that things not seen will occur, and that things which seem impossible, can be accomplished.
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that (faith is) not of yourselves, it is the gift of God…
…walk by faith, not by sight —
…in (the gospel message) the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.”
An incapacitating, paralyzing and enslaving mental power offered to all mankind by the kingdom of darkness, and chosen by some as a lifestyle, designed to steal our salvation, to kill our faith, to destroy our hope, to turn our love cold, and to keep our lives in constant crisis.
For though we walk (have a lifestyle) in the flesh, we do not war according to the (power of the) flesh,//for the weapons of our warfare (like faith and prayer) are not of the flesh, but (the weapons of our warfare are) divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.
We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ…
…and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete.//You are looking at things as they are outwardly…
BARAH MINISTRIES’ PURPOSE
To evangelize to unbelievers, providing the accurate Gospel Message,the Good News about Jesus Christ’s Person and His salvation work at the Cross.
To teach the Word of God regularly to believers in Christ.
To conduct missionary activity, raising Pastors and independent self sustaining churches throughout the world as God provides the opportunity.
“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled out, and the (wine)skins will be ruined.
“But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins.//And no one, after drinking old wine wishes for new (wine); for he says, ‘The old is good enough.’”
When I Think About Home
QUESTIONS FOR REFLECTION
How am I different as a person because I attend Barah Ministries?
How is Christ changing me through Barah Ministries?
What then shall we say (face) to (face with) these things? If (1) God is for us (and He is), who is against us?
Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed.
The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.
After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.
Pursuing Truth from the Word of God
“But when He, (God) the (Holy) Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.”
TAKE A LOOK
Take a look in the mirror
And look at yourself
But don’t you look to close
Because you just might see
That you hate the most
In what ways can I serve Christ through Barah Ministries?
Walk in the Light
Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.//In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.
The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed
Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.
Let us pray…
Thanks for watching!
Thanks for listening!
