Greetings to all. I found the salvation of my Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ when I was 16 years old. At 18 I knew what God wanted me to do. I enrolled in a Bible College about 950 miles from my home when I was approaching 19. Within a year I told God that I could not be a good enough person to be a Preacher, and He would have to send someone else to fill my role. For a number of years, He allowed me to wander about, working in many kinds of employment. One of those was playing guitar. I married, had two children, and have raised them successfully. after 46 years of marriage, my wife and I separated. She is a wonderful Christian woman and lives in a town about 50 miles from where I reside. We remain good friends, today. The separation was my fault. I met a lady, who now supports the ministry which I participate in, called Fret Not Ministry, and what was a musical evangelism form 5 years ago has now become a landed ministry in a small town 30 miles south of where I reside. I teach a Bible Study and preach a sermon once a week to a community of about 105 people. I have a regular attendance of 20-30 people, but it has started to grow in the last few weeks. I look forward to discussing a varied number of topics and reading the many comments that accompany them. I also look forward to growing more in my understanding of God's great plan in the world today. I am avidly political, keenly interested in the last days observing the middle east in general, and Israel in particular. I am conservative by nature and a strong Constitutionalist. Yes, I voted for and support President Trump. May God bless those who read and welcome this member. Shalom
A. DEVOTIONAL STUDY (To be used in teaching) Go directly to the Blble and read over a few times the portion to be taught. Then try answering the following questions: 1. What does this portion teach about God the Father...the Son...the Holy Spirit? 2. What does it teach about man? 3. Are there any warnings to heed? 4. Are there any commands to obey? 5. Are there any promises to claim by faith? When completing this exercise, draw some conclusions you can apply to your life or to the lives of those you are teaching. Then read over the teacher's manual or a Bible commentary to see if it agrees, clarifies, expands or qualifies what you have discovered. You will find this process will make the material more your own. You will be able to remember it better and share it with greater confidence. Be sure to give homework assignments -- to give the students introspection and reinforcement. eg. Questions to Ask Myself? Two or three questions that apply to WHO THEY ARE IN CHRIST, limitations they may be putting on their spiritual advancement, and seeking their DESTINY in Christ. The work they do alone in answering these questions will benefit them more than many hours of Sunday School teaching. Also give them several verbal affirmations highlighting their inheritance in Christ which will be from points in the lesson. By verbally affirming their re-created status they will not be as likely to skim over the lesson and eventually forget it. B. TOPIC TECHNIQUE (To be Used Individually) 1. In this Bible study technique you CHOOSE A TOPIC--not a random topic but a topic that you feel the you need further revelation of. Examples of Topics: High Calling Boldness Fruitfullness Sanctification Love Compassion Spiritual Gifts Worship Praise Deliverance Healing Wisdom Humility Discipleship Growth Restoration 2. Pick out several books to study in the New Testament. 3. DEVELOP A CONSCIOUSNESS of the topic by meditation on it and by arousing some eager expectation of revelation to come. 4. As you focus on the topic begin reading the scripture. Write out the passages that have to do with the topic and ask the Holy Spirit for a deeper understanding. 5. At the end of the study session WRITE OUT A LIST OF AFFIRMATIONS that affirm the written out scriptures and carry them with you throughout the day to say out loud and meditate on. 6. Share any revelation you have received with others in the body of Christ. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY
