Welcome to the Journey!

 

You may hear the word "hallelujah" as a casual expression of joy from time to time. What does the word “hallelujah” bring to mind? A happy word? A religious word? A common word?
Hallelujah is a special word. It is a Hebrew word that means praise to “Yah”. Or "Praise the LORD". We should never use this phrase without regard for God. It is part of the LORD’s name which is translated Jehovah or Yahweh. So when we say, “Hallelujah” we are saying, Praise the Yahweh" or "Praise the Jehovah". Jehovah, or Yahweh is same name because it is formed by the same Hebrew letters but it is pronouced differently. The Bible says that the name of the LORD (YHWH) is to be praised from the rising of the sun to its setting (Psalm 113:3). The name LORD: http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H3068&t=KJV

We don’t know exactly how God’s holy name should be pronounced now because to the Jews it was so sacred that they said “Ha Shem” meaning “the name” instead, but we can do our best. Who is “Ha Shem?” Ha Shem is the Triune God.

The Bible introduces the Son of God as the Word. “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God…. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father full of grace and truth.” (John 1:1,14).

We remember that God took on flesh. Jeshua, Jesus’ Hebrew name means “Jehovah saves”. Jesus was and is the eternal Son of God who declared, “He who has seen me has seen the Father”(John 14:9). The Father and the Son as well as the Holy Spirit work in harmony as three interdependent Persons. The Son of God revealed the Father. “He [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God...” (Colossians 1:15). He, in fact, is the Creator. “[God] hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds. Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power…” (Hebrews 1:2-3, cf. John 1:1-3; Colossians 1:16). The Son is the amazing Person that came to this earth to purchase our salvation with his life blood, http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+1:5&version=NIV separating from the Father for his short sojourn on earth (I Peter 1:2), http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20Peter+1:2&version=NIV He died for our sins according to the Scriptures,...he was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures as recorded in I Corintians 15:3,4. At this time of year we remember Jesus' death for our sins and we celebrate his resurrection from the dead. These are historic facts that can be applied to our lives personally. To do so, prepares us for eternal life with Jesus. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" John 3:16.

Priorities:

  • CARE children to Christ! That's our motto.
  • We are committed to the well-being of each child. The Bible is our sure foundation; all of our activities flow from this excellent, truthful source.
  • We promote Bible memorization. And the children love it! I am sure we underestimate what children are able to do with respect to memorizing the Word of God.
  • We incorporate laying a foundation in Genesis http://www.christiananswers.net/evangelism/methods/creation.html., such topics as dinosaurs and the fossil record http://www.answersingenesis.org/kids.
  • In all we do, we build enjoyment into the program. We want the children to have FUN as they learn about the God of the Bible and how best to live a pleasing and pure life.

"And this I pray that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment that you may approve the things that are excellent and that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of God (Philippians 1:9-11).
