Kissing for Revival
This week's message is Kissing for Revival. Choose your connection speed to listen: dialup - broadband - transcript
Psalm 85:10 says, "Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed." Even though Israel had once again strayed away from God and received judgment, God restored and revived them when they turned back to him and sought him with all their heart.
Today we explore Psalm 85, penned by the "Sons of Korah," and explore the seriousness of willful sin and the call to righteousness.

What Sin is not Covered?
Hebrews 10:26 says, "For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries." It identifies this type of lifestyle to trampling Jesus under foot, counting the blood a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace.
This is the type of message that will get you in trouble in today's world. It's not seeker friendly. It doesn't talk about the love and mercy of God. And if it weren't in the Bible, it would be denounced as a legalistic herecy.
But it is quoted here without commentary or revision. It is the Holy Scriptures. It is the truth. And instead of trying to explain it away, we would do well to examine ourselves and pray, "Try my heart and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in your ways everlasting."
The Bible tells us that if we do sin, we have an advocate with the Father, and First John reminds us that if we confess our sins, God is faithful to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. So don't think your struggles are hopeless. Even if you've done it a million times before, confess your sin to God and turn away from it. And he will forgive you. Just resigning to your sin is not an option.

Prayer Requests & Praise Reports
Baby with Hypoglycemia – Beacon writes, I was just informed by my daughter that baby Dominick has a form of hypoglycemia - instead of his blood count being at 80 its at 13...was admitted to the neo natal unit...on ivs and is responding well. When I told Britt that I would ask you all to pray
for him she smiled and thanked me...we are aware of the power of the prayers of the faithful. Will keep you updated! Thank you! Love you all!
Chronic Pain – Karene writes, Hi everyone, Thank you to you all for praying for me. Well, The doctor says I have peripheral Neuropathy (nerve pain), joint hyper mobility syndrome- (over stretched joints) which causes alot of pain, and chronic pain syndrome (all over body pain). so needless to say I am in alot of pain. even doing the simplest thing around the house tires me out so I have to pace my self. I am not used to doing that, but I guess I have to. The doctor wants me to exercise so a couple times a week my Mom and I walk around our neighborhood. We don't walk very far yet but we are working up to it. Right now the doctor has me on Neurontin and extra strength Tylenol for the pain, we shall see how that works. I saw the doctor on 7/7 and nothing has changed; except that the vitamin D level in my body is low so he has me taking calcium and extra vitamin D. I assume to prevent me from getting Osteoporosis. It's really the pits getting old sometimes. I will be 50 in December and I used to think that was so old and now I am almost there. UGH ! Hope all is going well with all of you. I keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs, Karene
