Seeking a Lasting Love Affair

Song of Solomon 8:7 --
"Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away."

*********************************************

Oh how we dream of falling in love with Mr. Right and living each day in full passion with him, sharing our most tender and intimate thoughts with him.There has never been anything that can even compare to the feeling of being in love and living in passion with the one that we love. There is just a certain natural high that goes along with being in love, it's almost a mystery..So many will spend literally hundreds of dollars yearly buying romance novels, just itching to get a quick glismp of the feeling, many will have extramartial affrairs yearly to feel this passion that they may not be getting at home,many will turn there soaps on daily to get an hours worth of this feeling or rent a movie to feel this passion, and then theres many that will only dream of this feeling and never actually be able to feel the realness of this gratifying feeling. Where do we find it ? Where is love and romance ? Is it in the music that we listen to on our radios ?There is one country song out at this time hitting the top ratings, it is sung by a teenage artist; " I want to fall in love. " This artist stresses the desire to fall in love, to feel that touch, wants to feel it running through her heart and soul, says she can't live with out it . Now, how many of us, honestly now, can say we 've felt this same way at one time or another ? Our problem is, we get too eagar to fall in love and to feel that touch. And at times we may settle for lust and not really love, true unconditional love; with passion and intimatcy.

Is it that we are looking in all the wrong places ? Where are many looking for love ?

In all the wrong places...The place that each and everyone of us can find love is simply by opening up our Bibles and reading the word of God. We then learn who Our Lord is, come to the place of knowing him, then we draw even nearer and get to know him better, and then we grow into a personal relationship with Him ( Jesus Christ ). We make personal time alone with just him, just you and Him.We can share our deepest darkest secrets, desires, our concerns, our love, our passion with Him.He is the true One that can set our hearts a flame with the love and passion that we are crave. He has given each of us this feeling of desire, many just focus this desire toward individuals of the world and not for the true meaning of this feeling that He has equipped us all with.

This is the true meaning and feeling of where we are to place our desires, with Him. Until we can come to the place of putting Him in this area, we will never be completely satisfied with any love affair that we have, true contentment of these feelings comes when our heart are on fire for the One who gave His life for you and me, that is Jesus Christ.Do you want to fall in love, do you want to feel His touch, do you want to feel Him running through your heart and soul ? Seek Him, and let your love relationship with him be restored and renewed.


Unfaithful and Unequally Yoked
---------------------------------------------

2Corinthians 6

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God , and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,


God Has Called us to Holiness

1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

2Ti 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called [us] with an holy calling, not according to our work, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

2Pe 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

So we have determined to stay the course and keep on keeping on.

Also her husband has had health problems, and she has needs herself, so please continue to keep them in your prayers. They need a blessing and direction in their lives.

We have a very interesting opportunity to Obtain a Place that could become The Morning-Star Prayer Retreat. We would really like you all to pray with us concerning this, and ask the Lord to open the door that know man can shut. It is a very unusual and peaceful place, perfect for a Spiritual Retreat.

PROPHETIC WORD

June 7, 1999
The Graves Shall Burst Open

While worshipping the Lord this morning, the Spirit of God showed me a vision of an entire nation of church meeting houses that looked as if they were, in truth, a large beautiful cemetery complete with crosses on top. I saw row after row of these beautiful structures that were, in truth, full of dead men's bones. These structures appeared beautiful to the eye but many carried within them the stench of death.

And suddenly there was a rumbling and I saw many of their roofs blown off by the rushing wind of the Spirit of God. In some places there was a titanic shaking. Men on the inside tried to bolt the doors closed but the force of the shaking was too great. The doors burst open! Many people came staggering forth unto newness of life!

I saw the resurrection power of the Lord falling on his people. And they began to take to the streets proclaiming the Gospel in the market places, to the poor. I saw the miracles of the Book of Acts occurring in broad daylight. What we thought was "church" was, in fact, a grave, a death sentence, that was keeping us from the Lord's harvest. (And I am totally committed to the government of the local assembly. That is not being addressed here. God is talking about dead religion, having a form of godliness but not possessing God Himself. - Bryan)

God is going to shake us from our slumber and from our grave that we thought was a place of blessing! We have had a measure of peace but it is the peace of death. We are called to LIFE! Ezekiel 37:13 "And you shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves, and raise you from your graves, O my people."

Is this an end to meeting houses? No, but neither are meeting houses and end unto themselves! God has called us to go forth in His power and His might. Our meeting houses have become fortresses against God and His Gospel. He is not commanding sinners to come in - He is sending His saints out to go and compel them to come in!

Jesus taught in the temple and in the market places. He taught in homes and in lonely places. And God is breaking many of His people free with a mandate to go to the lonely places with the resurrection power of His Spirit to call the brokenhearted and lonely into the family of God.

Seek for the places where the lonely dwell and you shall see the hand of God move in power.

If we will heed this call our meeting houses shall burst at the seams with the glorious Harvest of precious souls that awaits us. They are now ripe for the plucking. Oh, people of God, set your hands to labor now. In the twilight of this hour, labor before night falls.

Who are the Real Apostles

Paul is our example of a new testament Apostle, called and ordained by Christ himself. Christ appears unto us personnely and gives us his plan and purpose for our lives. We are commissioned by him, and he is presently perfecting us beyond Apostleship, we have been called to a more intiment relationship. The Bride of Christ. Move on with Jesus, this is the Higher Calling.

Heb 3:1* Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

1Co 9:2 If I be not an apostle unto others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord.

2Co 12:12 Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.

1Ti 1:1* Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, [which is] our hope; 1Ti 2:7* Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, [and] lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

2Ti 1:11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.

2Ti 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called [us] with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

2Pe 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

THE BRIGHT AND MORNING-STAR

Re 2:28 And I will give him the morning star.

Re 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.

Lu 1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us,

Lu 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and [in] the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

2 Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.
