New Beginnings Church NOTES
______________________________ Pastor Tom Matson
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.
Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
Perfect submission, all is at rest
I in my Savior am happy and blessed
Watching and waiting, looking above
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long
It’s easy to get inspired to do something.
But we struggle to find the time to finish what we started.
Do you have that full assurance of salvation that God has promised. To KNOW, without a doubt that you are saved, that when you die your home will be in Heaven.
Hebrews 6:11-12 “And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 that you do not become sluggish (lazy), but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”(NKJV)
Lamentations 3:22-23 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Hebrews 10:19-25 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
What have we learned from all of this?
Have we grown strong and closer.
James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
I believe that we have gone through all of this to prepare us for what God is about to do.
I believe that the second coming of the Lord is near.
But I also believe that there are many who still need to receive Christ as their personal Savior.
So, I have had a vision that when we enter these doors again,. God is going to unleash His Spirit and a great revival, like no man has ever seen, is going to begin to take place.
ARE YIU READY?!
Get ready for the revival.
Jesus is coming soon.
Are you sure that you are ready?
Are you sure that you are saved?
Are you sure that you are prepared for what God is about to do?
I have a blessed assurance that God is still in control.
I will not be overcome.
Jeremiah 1:17-19 “Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. 18Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land. 19They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.
