BALANCED – FASTING/FEASTING
Series: Balanced
 
 
Balanced - Fasting and Feasting
 
God wants us to find balance in life! 
 
Matthew 4:1-11 - Fasting was the launching pad for the ministry of Jesus
 
Fasting is more than not eating food. 
 
The bottom line is fasting is about Consecration, Alignment/Realignment, Humbling Oneself, Focusing on God and Seeking after God.
 
The scriptures speak a lot about fasting, but even more about Feasting, 
 
The Jewish people had a total of seven feasts that God laid out in the Old Testament
 
The major festivals of the Old Testament Israel were, in calendar order, Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost), the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Booths (Tabernacles or Ingathering).
 
The Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) - This feast occurred seven full weeks after the wave offering of the first Fruits at Passover.
 
Pentecost - "50" days after Passover. This is a significant time of feast for us because it is the beginning of the church as we know it today. 
 
Acts 2:1-4 
We have operated the secular from the sacred, but God is looking for any moment and any place where He can show up and reveal Himself. It may happen during a time of fasting,, but i can also be during a time of feasting.
 
Announcements

    NO LONGER SLAVES… TO THE WORLD
    NO LONGER SLAVES… TO THE WORLD
    Sunday, October 22, 2017Many Christians are living with inner conflict which is self-sabotaging.
    Somehow the enemy has convinced us that we can join a church, be a part of a ministry, or even claim to be a spiritual leader while still being attached to this world. 3 dimensions of life = Spirit - Soul - Flesh Romans 8:6-7 
There are only 2 options: Carnal vs. Spiritual Carnal = fleshly, driven by your senses
    Spiritual = to be led by the Spirit of God
    Hebrews 5:12-14 - The writer is telling his audience (Jews from all the tribes who had been scattered throughout the, then known, world.) that they should be acting like adults (teachers), but instead they are acting like children who need to be taught. In Luke 7 we find Jesus speaking about John the Baptist to the Pharisees; who were rejecting the will of God because of their personal bias. Luke 7:31-35 - While the mature adults are making  business transactions; kids will sing, dance, and play games without ever realizing the power of what is happening above them. The believers in America have the greatest potential, but while the world is transacting business around us, we are singing our songs, dancing our dance and playing church. Life Chapel is not that kind of church. 
    We are no longer slaves to the lie of the carnal.
    Announcements Trunk or Treat! – Oct. 28th from 5 to 7PM, Life Kids will be hosting the annual fall party in the Life Chapel parking lot. There will be games, a hayride, trunk or treat, snacks, and more! This is for all ages.

    … TO RELATIONSHIPS
    Sunday, October 8, 2017
    Some people come into your life for a reason and some come for a season. Joseph: Promise - Pit - Potiphar - Prison - Palace Joseph was part of his problem. Joseph rose above those of lesser character by simply moving on.
    Joseph held on to his character in the face of false accusations.
    Joseph raised himself and those around him to another level.
    When you…            Freedom is found in… Align                        balance Absolve                   forgiveness
    Arise                        nobility
    Advance                 health
    I believe most relationships are worth saving. 1. Relationship health is critical in this society.
    2. Don’t let past relationships taint current ones.
    3. Healthy relationships point to the Kingdom of God and when people see the light and taste the salt they are drawn in.
    Pray about relationships… We forgive… Forgive us… Don’t let me transfer…
    Let me steward healthy relationships…
    May God’s Kingdom be advanced…

    NO LONGER A SLAVE… TO SIN
    NO LONGER SLAVES…TO SIN
    OCTOBER 1, 2017 James 1:14-15 - Note the progression here:
     
    Temptation - Drawing - Conceive - Sin - Growth - Death
    John 8:31-36 - It is God’s plan and purpose that you walk in freedom and liberty. 1. You must begin the journey abiding in Him!
       
    Psalms 119:45 2. You cannot fix what you refuse to acknowledge.
       
    1 John 1:8-9 3. There is a freedom in living a repentant life. 4. When He sets you free you are free indeed! In the Bible, there is a festival called “Jubilee.” For the Israelites, after seven cycles of seven years (49 years), there would be a sabbatical year during the 50th year. This was called the Year of Jubilee. You can read all about it in Leviticus 25. Luke 4:18-20 -Jesus is announcing that the Year of Jubilee has come in Him! In Jesus, captives are released, slaves are freed, and debts are forgiven!

    OVERCOMING LABELS
    Sunday, September 24, 2017
    Mark 2:3-12 1.  God wants to use people to heal people! 90% of new church members said they attended church the first time because a friend invited them. Transformation seldom happens in isolation and often happens in community. 2. God wants to reveal the lie of your label! This is not about the symptoms, but the source. Your label describes your past; your identity in Christ defines your future. Galatians 3:26-28 3. God wants to use your past to change someone’s future. God loves you, sees you, believes in you, and He has a plan for your future. Romans 6:23 I love how Mark records the peoples’ response at the conclusion of our story. …all were amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!” Announcements THIS WEEK:
