Opening Prayer:
Today we the people come "who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place." 2 Chronicles 7:14-15

Almighty God whoever is reading this right now teach them how to be present to their action and inactions that are anti-scriptural.  Restore the unrestored, unlearn to scripturally learn, give us the scriptural courage to confront the unconfronted yokes  in our lives that have somehow self bind us to self. Continue to shower someone with Your mercy Almighty God. Your perpetual mercy provides us with boldness to say no to any anti-scriptural disposition that is attempting to reposition someone to maintain a world disposition. Scripture is profoundly reminding someone right now "...Whatsoever (anti-scriptural disposition one may have it will bind you to any anti-scriptural decision you freely make), (those anti-scriptural disposition will bind you on earth and your anti-scriptural decision) shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. As all Christians governing themselves accordingly an anti-scriptural decision will establish if the light of God dwells within you. Scripture is clear, "but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."  Matthew 6:20-26, Matthew 18:18, Hebrews 4:12

Scripture Reading

Let's Talk
If you are actively participating in a negative behaviour which fails to celebrate scriptural integrity, scriptural sexuality, honouring scriptural marriage Genesis 1:26-28  and your Numbers 30:2 vow you need to scripturally question you. When was the last time you, "examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates. 2 Corinthians 13:5

When are you going to stop establishing things that are not scriptural? "For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God." Romans 10:3

Why are you playing Russian roulette with your salvation? If your sexual disposition is unlike scripture you could be a hearer of the word Christian not a doer of the word Christian. James 1:21-23.

Are you committing violence against a man or a woman, why? Abuse is wrong and abuse is not scriptural! The reason why you are doing what you are doing, you do not have a scriptural identity or know who you are according to scripture. God's will for your life is for you to be present to scripture to scripturally conquer self. You are more than a conqueror. "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" Romans 8:37-39

Let Us Pray
Almighty God, today we acknowledge "for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilledThe law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.  The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.  Romans 3:23, 2 Chronicles 10:3-6 John 1:9, Psalm 19:7-14
