Bulletin Notes

Spirit-Dependent Living-Isaiah 11:1-2
And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2†And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
These verses of scripture from Isaiah 11:1-2 foretell the coming of the promised Messiah through the lineage of David, and how much He would be dependent on the leading of the Holy Spirit to fulfill Godís will for his life. It also makes us more conscious of Godís will and increasingly dependent upon the Holy Spirit in all that we do.
In faith we spend time together to be transformed by the Lord. Our hope is that after this time together before the Lord, He will use us more effectively, wherever that might be. We are not gaining just some knowledge about God; we are getting to know God more. He is deepening our commitments and enriching our lives.
Do you remember how the Lord Jesus called the disciples aside? First, there was the stepping out from the world and then there was the stepping into His presence. Both happened simultaneously. If you are preoccupied with the world, then you cannot get close to God. Jesus asked for their whole lives. Indeed there were many that kept their original occupations, but in a true sense they had to give up that occupation and received it back. Isaiah 11 shares the keys needed in drawing close to God.
If we are going to be effective servants of Christ, then we better learn how to have Christ dwell in us through the Spirit of God. We are to walk and be filled with the Spirit. The same Spirit that anointed Jesus is to dwell within us. This is why we are called Christians, which literally means anointed ones (1 John 2:27).
"And as for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him." (1 John 2:27).
God accomplished so much in the life of Christ because the Holy Spirit constantly filled Him. The key to having effective and growing Christian lives is how much we understand and embrace the Spiritís work in our lives. It is not a question as to whether we have the Spirit or not. All of Godís people have the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13-14).
The key is how much of our lives do we yield to the wonderful Spirit of God. After all, all our lives we have been trained to live with our eyes, ears and minds. We need to change our orientation and live after the Holy Spirit. As we grow and mature in our new life in Christ, we become more aware of the Spiritís leading as He encourages all Christians to more fully respond to God in their lives.†
Paul J. Bucknell

Title:The Camp Heaven Project
Description:Camp Heaven is a 3+ acre piece of land near Talavadi, South India, given by the Lord in 2007. This land was given for the sole intent of building a Worship Center, a Bible School (including separate dormitories for men and women), a building for visiting teachers/guests, and a small house for a caretaker to manage the crops of banana, coconut, and sugarcane, which will be grown, harvested, and marketed to help make the property more self-sufficient and less dependent on foreign investments. The land was named Camp Heaven because it draws attention to the fact that it was, and still is God who has provided so wonderfully for His people and that they may come and experience for themselves His Presence and refreshing on this very special land.
