Own the Vision – 5

Why do we need to talk about the vision of our church? 1 Corinthians 1:10 NKJV (10) Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. Genesis 11:6 NLT (6) “Look!” He said. “The people are united, and they all speak the same language.…

NEHEMIAH – (Reconstruction of the City) AUTHOR: Though some believe that Nehemiah wrote the book of Nehemiah because of the words, “The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah” (1:1), many believe the evidence suggests that Ezra is the author of Nehemiah and used Nehemiah’s memoirs and firsthand accounts as though quoting Nehemiah. Also, in view of the similarities of Ezra 2 and Nehemiah, one wonders why the same author would repeat the same material in one volume. DATE: The historical setting…

Why do we need to go to church? Hebrews 10:24-25 NKJV (24) And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, (25) not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Forsaking – leave behind or desert Assembling – a gathering and putting together (implication is the same as puzzle pieces) This is not a…

FIRST KINGS – (David’s Death; Disruption of the Kingdom)  AUTHOR: The author is unknown, though the Jews credit its writing to Jeremiah. As Ryrie points out: Whoever the author or compiler of these books was, he used historical sources (11:41; 14:19, 29). He likely was one of the exiles who lived in Babylon, perhaps an unknown one, or Ezra or Ezekiel or Jeremiah (though someone other than Jeremiah would have had to write the last chapter of 2 Kings, since…

FIRST SAMUEL (Transition From Judges to Kingship) AUTHOR: Precisely who wrote 1 and 2 Samuel is not certain. The Jewish talmudic tradition says that it was written by Samuel. However, though 1 and 2 Samuel take their name from the prophet Samuel, the key figure of the early chapters, the prophet could not possibly have written more than part of 1 Samuel, since his death is recorded in chapter 25. But 1 Samuel 10:25 does attest to the fact that Samuel did…

Own the Vision – 2

Last week we spoke about why Springhill Church exists and that is people matter to God. They are of utmost importance to Him. People are the main reason that He has done so much including sending Jesus to redeem and save us. Why do we need to talk about the vision of our church? 1 Corinthians 1:10 NKJV (10) Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing,…

JUDGES (Seven Cycles of Apostasy, Judgment, and Deliverance) AUTHOR: Tradition tells us that Samuel wrote the book, but its authorship is actually uncertain. Samuel may have assembled some of the accounts from the period of the judges and prophets like Nathan and Gad may have had a hand in editing the material (see 1 Chron. 29:29). The Hebrew title is Shophetim, meaning “judges, rulers, deliverers, or saviors.” Shophet not only carries the idea of maintaining justice and settling disputes, but it is also used…

Acts 10:38 NKJV (38) how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. I believe we all would agree that Jesus was anointed by God to fulfill His assignment. Philippians 2:5-8 TPT (5) And consider the example that Jesus, the Anointed One, has set before us. Let his mindset become your motivation. (6) He existed in the…

JOSHUA (Possession and Conquest) AUTHOR: Joshua DATE: 1400-1370 B.C. TITLE OF THE BOOK: Unlike the first five books of the Old Testament, this book appropriately takes its name from the chief human personality of the book, Joshua, the son of Nun, Moses’ servant. Joshua’s original name was Hoshea (Num. 13:8; Deut. 32:44) which means “salvation.” But during the wilderness wanderings Moses changed his name to Yehoshua, meaning “Yahweh is salvation” or “Save, Yahweh” (Num. 13:16). Joshua is a contracted form of Yehoshua. This amounted to a prophetic…
