What does it mean to be a priest exactly? Has God really called believers to be a Kingdom of Priests? If so what does that entail? I hope in this study that we can answer all these questions and learn everything that God would reveal to us in His word at this time. God will never ask us to do anything that He will not make provisions for us to succeed! Today, let us begin to understand what it means to come boldly to God’s throne so that we can later understand what it means to be a Kingdom of priests before the LORD.
CURRENT HANDOUT Come Boldly
We begin our study with a verse in the book of 1 Peter.
1 Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light:” Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

Recently I saw an email with this Psalm in it. This Psalm by David is perhaps one of the most famous scriptures in the Word of GOD. I remember it’s one of the first chapters I ever learned as a child and will always remember. Sometimes we can read the words or say the words of scriptures but do we really stop to think just what they mean? Today we will do that. I went through GOD’S Word and found other scriptures to back up the scripture in Psalm 23. It’s an amazing and wonderful thing how these scriptures are all written by many different authors, some hundreds of years apart but all agree and speak truth because it is all inspired by GOD ALMIGHTY. It’s the most wonderful gift that we have!
The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of The LORD for ever
Author’s Notes: Last week we left our missionaries, Paul and Barnabas, heading into the city of Iconium, as they shook the dust of Pisidian Antioch off of their feet. These two men would soon find that initial acceptance followed by the stirring up of the people would be a regular pattern as they traveled from city to city. And in today’s lesson, we’re going to find both the acceptance and rejection get out of hand in the city of Iconium.
When Paul and Barnabas went to Iconium, they went to the synagogue, first.
Unbelieving Jews followed Paul and Barnabas to turn people against them.
Paul and Barnabas were forced to leave Iconium when they learned of a plot to kill them.
In Lystra, Paul healed a man who was lame from the time he was born.
The people of Lystra thought Paul and Barnabas were gods.

1. The people of Lystra wanted to make sacrifices to Paul and Barnabas. (true)
2. Paul and Barnabas accepted the worship of the people of Lystra. (false – they told them they were only men)

Author’s Notes: Paul and Barnabas had been chosen by the Holy Spirit for the first Christian missionary journey. But God had new plans for the second journey. And that plan would include the breakup of the old team, so two new teams would be formed. Barnabas would join back up with his nephew, John Mark, while Paul set out with a new partner named Silas. In today’s lesson, we’ll meet up with Paul and Silas in the city of Philippi, where God will demonstrate His great power through and for them.
When Paul and Barnabas set out on new missionary journeys, Barnabas went with his nephew, .
Paul’s new missionary partner was named .
Paul and Silas were called, in a , to come to Philippi.
The first person saved through Paul and Silas’ ministry in Philippi, was a woman named .

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.

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.

LISA DEVINNEY - “I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.” Ezekiel 34:26b NIV Are you in the midst of a storm, today? Are dark clouds looming above you while water is rising around you? Or do you find yourself fighting a battle that seems to test every fiber of your strength and faith? Or maybe you have a friend facing a difficult challenge, and you’d like to encourage them through their battle. Inspired by a friend’s courageous battle with cancer, Blessings in the Rain is a collection of Scripture verses and poems meant to encourage those who find themselves fighting battles of their own. Whether physical, mental or spiritual…the battles we face daily can easily cause us doubt, discouragement, despair, or fear. But God has an incredible way of taking what might have been meant to harm us, and instead use it for our good. He turns our storms into “showers of blessing.”
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
