What on Earth is Happening?

With the turmoil in today’s world, more and more people are searching for spiritual answers. Yet religious philosophies so often contradict each other. To whom it can return for reliable information?

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green takes a look at What on Earth is Happening? by Ray Stedman. Against the chaos of the current religious landscape stand the authoritative teachings of Jesus. In his Olivet discourse, Jesus described the climax of world history. He warned his disciples of the coming Antichrist, who would lead multitudes astray with his false religion.

At a time when so many prefer to speculate and sensationalize, come be a part as author Ray Stedman offers a sober, rational, thoughtful approach to biblical prophecy in his book, What on Earth is Happening? Because Christ’s message about the end of the age has never been more timely or relevant.

What on Earth Is Happening is the product of Stedman’s careful study of the Olivet discourse of Jesus, found in Matthew 24 – 25, as well as in Mark 13 and Luke 21. Here we find the Lord’s own description of the end of history – a description that dovetails with other prophetic passages of Scripture, from the Old Testament prophecy of Daniel to the New Testament Revelation of the apostle John.

Emotions are Manageable

“Casting all your care upon Him; for He cares for you” 1 Peter 5:7. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” Ephesians 6:12.

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss how Emotions are Manageable as they continue with the series “The 4 “M’s” of Emotions.” We can never figure out the flesh and we should never fight people in the flesh, but give all those cares to the Lord. Managing our emotions is a process of building the character of Christ in us. When we learn to take our thoughts captive and manage our emotions that come from those thoughts, God can build His character in us. His character can be described as calm, tranquil, tender and these are things we can ask Him to build in us.

 

25 Basic Bible Studies

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green pulls “25 Basic Bible Studies” by Francis Schaeffer from the shelf to explore.

Many Christians aren’t getting the grounding in the Word that is needed to build a lasting personal relationship with Christ. They seek out experiences that help them “feel” closer to Christ but haven’t gained the knowledge that will allow them to carry on when life comes to a point, which it does for all of us and more than just once or twice,  where they don’t feel close to God. They don’t feel saved, redeemed, loved or secure.

Many ask if the bible even speaks to the real problems of real people in the real world? Does it offer viable solutions to life’s problems? Absolutely it does, and you can weigh the evidence and decide for yourself in Francis Schaeffer’s-25 Basic Bible Studies, which details what the Bible actually teaches regarding our most fundamental questions about life and God.

So, come be a part as we search out the answers. This book highlights Scripture passages on the central doctrines of Christianity-such as creation, man’s sin and God’s grace, the person and the work of Christ, future events – and briefly explains how each passage supports the biblical teaching on that particular theme. It’s all right there. Laid out simply. You can see yourself what the Bible says – in God’s own words.

Emotions are Messengers Part 2

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you” John 14:26.

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon continue to discuss the importance of knowing how to hear the messages that emotions are bringing to us. Where do emotions come from and how can we distinguish what they are saying.

“At a very early age, we begin to receive messages and impressions about ourselves from those around us; parents, brothers, sisters, kids on the playgrounds, teachers, etc. These messages result in approval/acceptance that makes us feel OK about ourselves, or bring disapproval/rejection that makes us feel bad.”

 

Love & Respect

A wife has one driving need – to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy.

A husband has one driving need – to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy.

However, if either of those needs is not met, things get CRAZY!

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green brings out a classic. Come join us on this 2nd Anniversary episode as Dr. Emerson Eggerichs reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily and biblically.

Ask yourself, “What do I really want from my marriage”? Do you want peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love & Respect?

Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research.  Dr. Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have taken the Love & Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other.

Emotions are Messengers Part 1

There are different frequencies between AM and FM Radio.  If listening to AM stations we cannot hear the FM stations. If listening to the FM stations we cannot hear the AM stations.  We do not choose what is put on the AM or FM frequencies but we can choose which frequency we listen to.

The same is true of our minds.  Spiritual conflicts begin in the mind. We have one mind with two sources of programming from which to choose; either self-pleasing or God-pleasing.

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss how we are programmed through our five senses, sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. As we use these senses they produce thoughts and/or arouses memories. Depending on what we “ listen” to through our senses our mind will express corresponding emotions; influencing our actions of behavior. Behavior becomes a habit and a habit becomes a lifestyle.  Now we can understand the importance of listening to the right “frequency.”

Learn how to set the frequency that will tune-in to living in quiet confidence in the midst of our circumstances. One brings health and healing, the other brings confusion and defeat.

 

True Spirituality

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green takes a look at True Spirituality by Francis Schaeffer.

Are you tired of not seeing results in your own spiritual life and others.? Do you find yourself talking about Christianity, but not living it? IS being a Christian really making a difference in your life? If you are struggling with deeply perplexing questions like this… you are not alone.

After being a pastor for over a decade, Francis Schaeffer, founder of the L’Abri Fellowship found himself wrestling with these same questions and so he decided to go back to the beginning and reexamine his Christian faith.

The result of Schaeffer’s search for honest answers was amazing. So come be a part as we examine his work entitled, “True Spirituality” and take the journey with Mr. Schaeffer as he helps us to learn, “How to live for Jesus moment by moment

Emotions are Molecules

“My substance was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth” Psalm 139:15.

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss the 4 “M’s” of emotion that will shed light on what they are, why we have them, and how we can handle them even when they seem to be overwhelming. Emotions are Molecules. Emotions are Messengers. Emotions are Manageable. Emotions are Messy. This broadcast focuses on emotions as molecules and how they actually affect our physical body. God made us so skillfully; every little detail designed with purpose, carefully planned and executed with precision. Emotions are the part of every woman (person) that seems to get the best of us more often than we would like. Maybe you have even asked the questions, “Why do I get so emotional?” “Are emotions really necessary?” Emotions can drive us crazy and everyone around us.

Two Nations Under God

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green shares Two Nations Under God by Tom Doyle.

The nations of the world have been given an opportunity to bless or curse Gods’ chosen covenant people… Israel is the place and the Jews are the people. A Nation’s choice decides the health of the nation and determines its destiny.

Though modern Israel’s existence got off to a shaky start, America made a conscious effort to bless Israel and for much of the time period since then, America enjoyed the promised blessing of God.

But later generations seem to have moved away from some of the tenets held by the previous generations. Often deeming them old-fashioned and out of touch with the realities of today’s modern world and global culture.

Certainly, much of America’s youth when they think about Israel (if they even think about Israel) publicly wonder why America should even care about the turmoil in the Middle East…why should America care about Israel? Why should they care about Israel?

So, come be a part as Tom Doyle guides us through the Middle East Maze in his work, Two Nations Under God. As one reviewer put it, He will provide direction, balance, and sanity to an otherwise twisted pathway of claims and counterclaims. But this is not a dusty book.

Doyle populates the book with stories and illustrations from real people he has met in his travels. He ends by focusing on a profoundly relevant question for those living in the United States- “So what?” His call to action applies directly to every Christian and congregation-in our country today. This book can be summarized in three words: relevant, reliable, and readable. It will change the way you think about and pray for the Middle East!

Rx PreScriptures

“Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss matters of the brain and our thoughts.

Joy is a state of being and a gift from God-given to those who wait and trust on Him in the difficult time of life; those ready for a total commitment to the plan and purpose God has for us.  Sometimes we fail to move forward because we lack vision even after the desire to serve is within our hearts.

Proverbs 29:18 tells us “where there is no vision, the people perish” (or run wild).  We are in an age and culture where our vision has become very short-sighted and rather than having a single focus we are occupied with overstimulation of choices from the world around us, robbing us of the precious promises that are waiting for those that will “walk the talk”.

 

Many people mistake joy with happiness.  Feelings, also a gift, when positive can also feel like joy.  We need to learn how God has made us.  The brain has a major role in how the body passes on the information we gather from our senses and thinking.  Understanding how the brain works on behalf of the body and how it can work against us is determined by us.  “As a man thinks, so is he.”  Study along with us as we start an adventure inside the body, as it has been purchased by the Lord Jesus on the Cross as a dwelling place for the Holy Spirit to work through us.
