Monday, June 11, 2017, 8:30am. This session will be printed and passed out. Here is your link just in case you need it sooner.
Session 8 The Bride’s Life Vision (Song 1:4)

written by Donna Heinrich
to be used with “Studies in the Song of Solomon” by Mike Bickle

Session 8     (10 questions total) 

I.                     INTRODUCTION – Short Review of Song 1:1-4
1.       What does Song 1:2 mean?  (How could you explain the sensual terminology as an analogy?)
2.       How would you explain the meaning of verse 3?
3.       Verse 4 speaks of ‘running after you’.  What does it mean, and who are you running with? 
4.       In the first half of verse 4, what does ‘the king has brought me into his chambers’ mean to you? 

II.                   THE EXPRESSION OF HER FERVENCY: 2-fold life vision
5.       Do you have a ‘life vision’, which encompasses your short and long term goals for your family, your vocation and ministry?  If not, would you consider praying about one? 
6.       What 2 things are we to balance as our life vision unfolds? 
7.       What goals could you set in order to have a more focused life in the following areas: 
spiritual, relational, vocational, ministry, economic, physical and rest?

8.       What is the time in the King’s chamber all about, and why is it important?


9.       M.B. suggests three ways in which we ‘are glad and rejoice in Him’?  What are they?


10.   If a chamber experience is defined as a time when God woos, warns and confronts us so that we grow in the Spirit, can you share a time when you experienced this?  Mike Bickle says that it is not enough to have these experiences; we must also act on them by setting our soul to agree with what God spoke to us.  Do you agree with him? Can you share a time when you were challenged to do just that?  

Mike Bickle - Song of Songs Study

We had a wonderful bible study this morning, but we missed several of you and hope to see you next week!  We began  Session 7, the Fragrance of Jesus, today and will continue it next Monday.  Please read the whole lesson and make notes about what touches your heart.  There are no questions this week to work through, but rather the following assignment:

Research scripture, write down and meditate on God's thoughts and emotions toward you.  This is 'the fragrance of His good ointments'.  Pray into them for yourself during the week and be filled with HOPE!

Fear is Life Without Faith

Fear is simply life without Faith

When you come to the realization that God is with you, within you, and that you are never alone...then contemplate the lengths that he chose to show you His perfect
 love, you will start to understand. Do you think He would have done all that He did to let you live aimlessly on this earth? No dear child of God. No.

Focus on Him. Ponder His Word. Spend "time" with Him.

Don't think of it as sitting alone in silence. You are not alone, and the silence is needed to hear Him. Whether God places thoughts in your mind or you are open to hearing His audible voice. He will share Himself with you.

Are you ready? Why not?

I lived without God and in fear for so many years of my life. Thinking that I would need to give up something (everything) to be a good Christian. Not only did things start slipping away by themselves,when I started to follow Christ, but as I grew closer, I could see that my life was becoming richer, fuller in Him.

It is always your choice. To lean in, or to not. It's not about religion. It's not about what church you attend. Church is a building to bring believers together... It serves a purpose. But, first and most important to your choice is that you will now carry Christ with you in your heart. You "are" the church.

To choose Christ, or to not. There is no pressure on you. Don't choose out of guilt or fear or feel yourself being manipulated to be a follower of Christ. He doesn't want you to come to Him that way. He is pure love.. He is pure joy.. He is your Father.. He is longing for you to be free. Choose Him and you will not be sorry. Man may hurt and deceive you, but God never will.

Choose Him..what have you got to lose? What have you to gain?
You can always choose to leave, but if you truly seek the heart of Him Who loves you, you won't want to leave. Your heart will long to know Him more.

Praying that whoever reads this comes to the beautiful and profound knowledge of Who Christ truly is.
The freedom that will overcome all else.
The love that knows no bounds.

Ephesians 3:17-18(NIV)

17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,


Did you know that the phrase "do not be afraid" is in the Bible 365 times?

A reminder for every day of your life!
