Life is hard and sometimes we fall but God is faithful and willing to forgive us when we go to Him earnestly in repentance. Today we will be studying what it means to rededicate ourselves unto the LORD. I pray you will be encouraged and blessed as we venture into God’s word together. God Bless you all.
We learn in 2 Samuel 7, that in the time of King David, he wanted to build a Temple for The LORD, however, God would not allow him to because David had been a warrior. God did tell David that his son Solomon would build The Temple and God did allow David to make the plans and preparations for the building. We will be going now to 2 Chronicles where the Temple has been built and now it was being sanctified, dedicated, or Set Apart for the dwelling of God’s Spirit. The people of Israel were preparing to worship their God…The one true GOD.
CURRENT HANDOUT Chanukkah
During the period between when the old days ended and new testament days began, there were a number of rulers that oppressed the Jewish People and Jerusalem…There were about 13 Monarchs that ruled from the area of Syria over a period of about two and a half centuries all called Antiochus but there was a particular one who was the worst. His name was Antiochus Epiphanes…Antiochus IV. He too was a Syrian ruler who oppressed the Jewish people but Antiochus IV thought himself to be God and he wanted to be acknowledged as divine. It was about the year 167 B.C., he came barreling into Jerusalem, slaughtered Jews and set up an idol of Zeus. Being Greek, he worshipped Zeus and thus commanded everyone stop the worship of God and to begin Greek worship there in Jerusalem. This specific ruler did some major things that were horrific to the Jewish people when he came into power.
He exchanged Hebrew priest for Greek Priests in the temple.
He forbid the offerings and sacrifices to GOD.
He stopped the Sabbath Day.
He stopped the circumcision of new born sons.
He stopped the celebration of the Feasts.
He sacrificed pigs on the alter to Zeus.
He built alters and shrines to Zeus.
He sent the Jewish People into hiding because he was out to kill them.
Can you image how the Jewish people must have felt when he used the alter of the LORD MOST HIGH, to offer pigs…pigs of all things to a pagan god, in the Temple of the MOST HIGH. They were HORRIFIED! The Temple was the abode of GOD’S Spirit in those days. It was EVERYTHING to them. Then some heathen ruler comes in and tells them they cannot worship The TRUE GOD…The ONE who brought them out of Egypt, who had provided for them and cared for them. HE had commanded them to never have other god’s before HIM…This was devastating to the Jewish people. More than we can even imagine.
Teacher’s Notes:For the next three weeks, we’re going to settle into some lessons on a very familiar, and well-loved topic…Christmas! We’ll begin this week by looking at the promised Messiah: why He had to come, what He was foretold to be like, and who He was promised to. Let me take this opportunity to wish you who will be sharing these lessons a very Merry Christmas! God bless you as you share with your students the wonderful story of the birth of Christ.
In just a couple of weeks, many Christians around the world will be celebrating a wonderful holiday. Would anyone like to guess what that might be? Yes, Christmas! And who can tell us what we are celebrating at Christmas? Yes, the birth of Jesus Christ, here on this earth.

Horizon Christian Fellowship - San Diego. - Lamentations 3:26,27 It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young. Dear brothers and sisters in Jesus,is it fair that we should know sorrow, pain and death? I think my answer would be,"it's not that we are supposed to experience death and pain. It's the wisdom that comes from knowing how good God is, despite our pain and sorrow. Because wisdom and understanding is way more valuable and worthwhile than all the pleasures that are marketed and pushed on us, and believing physical sex and substance abuse and pleasures that we are led to think is normal and real, are good for us. God is real and the sooner we get to know Him, the more peace we will have in the fire and turmoil. Then we can truly enjoy our lives whether in poverty or wealth. Peace or war. Beautiful or not beautiful.. 4/7/2011

4/14/10 More: Is it possible for someone to write a few paragraphs on how great I am? Or will it turn out to be, how great I was? If you ever get a thought in your spirit about something, some place, or someone, and you pray for that something, someplace, or somebody, you have done a great thing,and it's to God be the Glory. Gideon was a mighty man of valour. You are a mighty man or woman of valour too. No hype, no fanfare; just doing your duty.

This book views the New Testament within the Holy family, clarifying for the reader the time and place relationships among these events, most of which are often studied in isolation from each other in Bible studies. In this way, a reader may already know the stories of Lazarus, Jesus, Herod, etc. but may lack an integrated vision of how these events worked together in time and place. The book's interweaving of events, plus diligent detail in presenting culture and setting, will place a vivid memory of New and Old Testament events in the reader’s mind.
Your kids will delight in the timeless
tales of courage, faith & endurance with characters like Adam & Eve,
Noah, Moses, Abraham, Jesus of Nazareth, and the Apostles.
Our truly unique DVD's bring biblical stories and characters to
life. The Animated Kids Bible will cement their favorite biblical
stories and characters in their memories for all time, by first
entertaining them, and then helping them to develop deeper
understanding and knowledge. Click
