Work Ethics for Employees

1. Strong Work Commitment Employers value employees who understand and possess a willingness to work hard. In addition to working hard it is also important to work smart. This means learning the most efficient way to complete tasks and finding ways to save time while completing daily assignments. It’s also important to care about your job and complete all projects while maintaining a positive attitude. Doing more than is expected on the job is a good way to show management that you utilize good time management skills and don’t waste valuable company time attending to personal issues not related to the job. Downsizing in today’s job market is quite common so it’s important to recognize the personal values and attributes employers want to improve your chances of job security should a layoff occur. 2. Dependability and Responsibility Employers value employees who come to work on time, are there when they are supposed to be, and are responsible for their actions and behaviour. It’s important to keep supervisors abreast of changes in your schedule or if you are going to be late for any reason. This also means keeping your supervisor informed on where you are on all projects you have been assigned. Being dependable and responsible as an employee shows your employer that you value your job and that you are responsible in keeping up with projects and keeping them informed of the things that they should know about. 3. Possessing a Positive Attitude. Employers seek employees who take the initiative and have the motivation to get the job done in a reasonable period of time. A positive attitude gets the work done and motivates others to do the same without dwelling on the challenges that inevitably come up in any job. It is the enthusiastic employee who creates an environment of good will and who provides a positive role model for others. A positive attitude is something that is most valued by supervisors and co-workers and that also makes the job more pleasant and fun to go to each day. 4. Adaptability Employers seek employees who are adaptable and maintain flexibility in completing tasks in an ever changing workplace. Being open to change and improvements provides an opportunity to complete work assignments in a more efficient manner while offering additional benefits to the corporation, the customer, and even the employee. While oftentimes employees complain that changes in the workplace don’t make sense or makes their work harder, oftentimes these complaints are due to a lack of flexibility. Adaptability also means adapting to the personality and work habits of co-workers and supervisors. Each person possesses their own set of strengths and adapting personal behaviours to accommodate others is part of what it takes to work effectively as a team. By viewing change as an opportunity to complete work assignments in a more efficient manner, adapting to change can be a positive experience. New strategies, ideas, priorities, and work habits can foster a belief among workers that management and staff are both committed to making the workplace a better place to work.

5. Honesty and Integrity Employers value employees who maintain a sense of honesty and integrity above all else. Good relationships are built on trust. When working for an employer they want to know that they can trust what you say and what you do. Successful businesses work to gain the trust of customers and maintain the attitude that “the customer is always right”. It is the responsibility of each person to use their own individual sense of moral and ethical behaviour when working with and serving others within the scope of their job. 6. Self – Motivated Employers look for employees who require little supervision and direction to get the work done in a timely and professional manner. Supervisors who hire self-motivated employees do themselves an immense favour. For self-motivated employees require very little direction from their supervisors. Once a self-motivated employee understands his/her responsibility on the job, they will do it without any prodding from others. Employers can do their part by offering a safe, supportive, work environment that offers employees an opportunity to learn and grow. Working in a supportive work environment and taking the initiative to be self-directive will provide employees with a better sense of accomplishment and increased self-esteem. 7. Motivated to Grow & Learn In an ever-changing workplace, employers seek employees who are interested in keeping up with new developments and knowledge in the field. It has been noted that one of the top reasons employees leave their employers is the lack of opportunity for career development within the organization. Learning new skills, techniques, methods, and/or theories through professional development helps keep the organization at the top of its field and makes the employee’s job more interesting and exciting. Keeping up with current changes in the field is vital for success and increased job security. 8. Strong Christ – Confidence Christ - confidence has been recognized as the key ingredient between someone who is successful and someone who is not. A Christ – confident person is someone who inspires others. A Christconfident person is not afraid to ask questions on topics where they feel they need more knowledge. They do not have to impress others with what they know since they are comfortable with themselves in Christ and don’t need to know everything. The Christ - confident person does what the WORD records is right and is willing to walk by faith. Christ- confident people can also admit their mistakes. They recognize their strengths as well as their weaknesses and are willing to work on the latter. Christ-confident people have faith in Jesus Christ and their God-given abilities which is manifested in their Christian attitude and Holy Spirit guidance and counsel. THE ABUNDANT LIFE WELLNESS PLAN Practical Manual for Life


9. Professionalism Employers value employees who exhibit professional behaviour at all times. Professional behaviour includes learning every aspect of a job and doing it to the best of one’s ability. Professionals look, speak, and dress accordingly to maintain an image of someone who takes pride in their behaviour and appearance. Professionals complete projects as soon as possible and avoid letting uncompleted projects pile up. Professionals complete high quality work and are detail oriented. Professional behaviour includes all of the behaviour above in addition to providing a positive role model for others. Professionals are enthusiastic about their work and optimistic about the organization and its future. To become a professional you must feel like a professional and following these tips is a great start to getting to where you want to go. 10. Loyalty Employers value employees they can trust and who exhibit their loyalty to the company. Loyalty in the workforce has taken on a new meaning. Gone are the days when employees plan on starting out and retiring with the same company. It is said that most people will hold between 8 – 12 jobs throughout their career. What does this mean in terms of loyalty in today’s workforce? Companies offering employee growth and opportunity will ultimately gain a sense of loyalty from their employees. Employees today want to feel a sense of satisfaction in their jobs and will do a good job when they feel that the employer is fair and wants to see them succeed. Although this may mean only staying for five or ten years in a position, employees can offer loyalty and make an important contribution during their time with the company. More companies today encourage employee feedback and offer employees an opportunity to lead in their area of expertise. This gives employees a greater sense of satisfaction and a sense of control over their job. Empowerment encourages employees to do their best work since companies are displaying a trust and expectation that they believe in their employees to do a good job. Offering jobs that encourage learning and the development of new skills also gives employees a sense of empowerment in the workplace. Aligning employee’s values with the goals of the organization will foster loyalty and a bond between employer and employee. Fostering good relationships within an organization and offering constructive ways to handle conflict provides a win – win situation for both employer and employee. Creating an organization that values loyalty within the organization can also work to its benefit by using the same techniques and strategies to establish loyalty with customers; and loyalty from customers ultimately makes for a successful business. Proverbs 9:9-11 Give instructions to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: Teach a just man and he will increase in learning. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding. For by the Lord Jesus thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.

How to live the Abundant life

JESUS our Saviour died to DELIVER us (free us) from our own carnal will and now the Lord Jesus daily leads us to DIE to self (me, myself and I) and live in daily OBEDIENCE to the divine Will of our heavenly Father! Matthew 7:21; Galatians 2:20 and John12:24 We have been redeemed from the law but as Christians we are INSTRUCTED to Obey the Will of God - Amen And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know the TRUTH, and that no lie is of the truth. 1 John 2:14-21 The Perfect Plan and Purpose for your life is concealed within the Will of God – 1.

12. Vision and Purpose Development A. WHAT IS A VISION? 1. A “vision” is a clear mental image of a preferable future, imparted by God to His chosen servants and is based upon a revelation of His Word and His Will for your life. 2. Based on this definition, there are three aspects of vision: (1) The Word - Your vision comes from God, it is not something you thought overnight. (2) Your saved soul - Your God given spiritual gifts will help you focus on your vision. (3) Circumstances - your vision begins where you are now; so you must face and recognise your life challenges, and overcome these barriers by the Living Word residing inside you. (Colossians 1:27-29) 3. A vision is developed from the God given measure of faith that is imparted to you at your salvation. To “envision” means to conceive and SEE the Will of the heavenly Father become real in your life as you fulfil your Purpose INSIDE His Body on earth. 4. A vision is a spiritual revelation of the manifestation of the Lord in your life which is not yet actually present. 5. Vision is for all Believers. Vision is all about the future, not the past and present! B. WHY IS VISION IMPORTANT? 1. Vision applies to all born-again Believers. People who don’t plan for the future are planning to fail! As important as a BLUEPRINT is to a future high-rise building, so a Biblical VISION is absolutely essential to successful living in Christ! (Proverbs 29:18) 2. Your present vision will serve as a bridge to walk from the past to the future. Vision is the (1) eye of Faith to see the invisible, (2) a decision to get started and (3) Godly motivation to establish it in your life! 3. Vision can be compared to PAINTING. First, you get a canvass and the equipment. Then you imagine an image of something that doesn’t yet exist. Then you start planning, sketching etc. With a Godly vision you paint things in the mind that will assist and guide you to accomplish your Purpose in life. 4. Those who are living close to the Lord Jesus receive spiritual REVELATION that others don’t see! (1 Samuel 9:9). A visionary is one who sees first and sees most. He sees farthest into the future and initiates NEW THINGS unto the Glory of God (Isaiah 43:19) C. WHAT WILL YOUR VISION DO? 1. Godly vision gives purpose and adds meaning to your life (Philippians 1:21). While you might not accomplish all your personal goals, having a Godly vision will GUIDE you to realize your God given ministry INSIDE the Body of Christ unto the glory of God. Note that a Godly vision will NOT be self-serving or self-centred! (Ephesians 4:11-16) 2. Your vision will assist you to have a sense of direction and fulfilment as you move towards accomplishing your purpose in life. When you put yourself in advance to the future, you’ll be energized by your vision and purpose (Romans 4:18). In spite of hardships, you will possess joy, peace, wisdom and hope as you press towards the fulfilment of your Purpose in life (Romans 8:24). 3. Godly vision will help you endure and sacrifice to achieve your purpose. Great achievements are born out of great sacrifice. No Pain, No Gain! (Philippians 3:13-14). THE ABUNDANT LIFE WELLNESS PLAN Practical Manual for Life


D. WHAT YOUR VISION INVOLVES? 1. Your vision must grow out of Biblical principles. Needless to say, your vision must be tied up and consistent with the word of God (Proverbs 29:18). It is your KEY to fulfilment, blessedness, joy, fruitfulness and eternal LIFE! 2. Your vision will reflect your walk with the Lord Jesus (Proverbs 3) 3. Your vision must grip your soul. As you discover your life’s purpose in Christ Jesus, your vision will grow in your heart and soul. As you drink the Living Waters, the Lord will vividly show you His plan and purpose for your life. 4. Your vision involves inevitable CHANGE which most people don’t want to. “If you always do, what you have always done, you will always be where you have always been.” 5. A Godly vision will not be hindered by your present weaknesses and limitations. The Bible is filled with testimonies of men of faith in difficult situations, with limited resources, against impossible odds, who prevailed and achieved great things for the Lord God. (Philippians 4:13; 2 Corinthians 5:11-21) 6. A Godly vision will be so great and seemingly impossible that it require supernatural intervention from God Almighty (Romans 8:31; Ephesians 3:16-21). 7. Your vision must include the price you will be paying and the earthly things you will be losing to achieve your heavenly vision (Luke 9:23; Philippians 3:8-14).

A Godly Vision I Pray the Lord Jesus to MANIFEST in me and millions of people to EXPERIENCE His Love through me for them to RECEIVE His Gift of divine Salvation. To be a Consecrated Conquering Christian Conveyor, Conduit, Channel and Compeller of Christ’s Charity, Compassion and Care to many Crushed souls – C12 Christian for Christ Jesus – Amen The Lord Jesus came down from heaven, not to do His own will, but the Will of His Father that sent Him. And this is the Will of God that sent Jesus, that every one which SEES the Son, and believes on Jesus, may have everlasting life: and Jesus will raise them up at the last day. John 6:38 - 40 A Godly Mission To LIVE and OBEY the Will of my heavenly Father inside the Body of Christ and to SHINE as a bright Light in a perverse and wicked world; Holding forth the Word of Life! To be a Mature Ministering Member and Messenger on Mission for the Master in the Marketplace and in the Messiah’s Body! M8 - Christian for Christ Jesus Not every one that says unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; BUT he that OBEYS the Will of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 7:21 Be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom you SHINE as Lights in the world; Holding forth the Word of Life; that you may rejoice in the day of Christ, that you have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Living In Hope

Introduction If current trends continue almost every family in our nation will soon have been affected in some way by HIV/AIDS. Already millions of people are suffering as a result. They, their families and friends, and even whole communities are struggling with different emotions and fears: anger and outrage, the sense of helplessness, loss, and alienation, financial crisis, and the fear of abandonment and death. Throughout the Scriptures there is a theme that runs strong and sure: even when life seems to betray us, when others turn away from us, and when we feel most alone, our loving God stands by us. God is faithful and persists in loving us, accompanying us even in the most frightening situations. God’s love and loyalty can be counted on. Whatever happens, as Paul put it, “nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.” As you read the biblical passages presented in this booklet, reflect on God’s redemptive love and offer of hope and comfort to all who are suffering and hurt. God deeply loves each one of us The Bible consistently affirms that God cares for everyone, without regard for physical or spiritual condition, or standing in society. Moreover, the Bible reveals the special love and concern God has for those whom society ignores or excludes. Jesus himself made this loving care evident through what he taught, what he did and how he lived. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matt 11:28-30 Jesus came into the world to be its Saviour, not its Judge For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:16-18A Jesus’ love includes everyone And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him. And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Matt 9:9-13 Jesus call us his friends I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:5-13. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10 CCS INTERNATIONAL PO Box 2272 Beacon Bay 5205 Cell – 082 65 98 231 Email - louisjooste@mweb.co.za


God is always with us Sometimes in our circumstances we struggle to experience God’s abiding presence. Remember – God is always with us. God is with us even in the deepest darkness A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Ps 23:1-6 God is with us when we feel trapped and helpless I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. Ps 118:5-8 Nothing can separate us from the love of God What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 8:31-39

God offers acceptance and love to everyone Sometimes you may feel that God has turned away from you, and no longer cares. But this is far from the truth. God is always eager to offer forgiveness and to accept us in love. God is faithful and his love is abundant Ps 103 & Ps 130 God is with you in your crisis But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. Fear not: for I am with thee: Isa 43:1-5A.

God identifies with the rejected Throughout the Scriptures God shows special concern for the vulnerable – widows, orphans, prisoners, prostitutes and those whom society rejects. THE ABUNDANT LIFE WELLNESS PLAN Practical Manual for Life


God sees that the vulnerable are cared for For the LORD your God is God of Gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name. He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen. Deut 10:17-21 God’s suffering servant was despised and rejected Isaiah 52:13-53:3 Jesus himself was rejected And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band. And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head, And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him. Mark 15:16-20

Our hope in God reaches beyond death HIV/AIDS makes us sharply aware of our own mortality and ultimate death. But Scriptures proclaim the even greater reality of life beyond death. A tent on earth and a house in heaven For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 4:16-5:8 Death is defeated For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the first fruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:21-28; 51-58 CCS INTERNATIONAL PO Box 2272 Beacon Bay 5205 Cell – 082 65 98 231 Email - louisjooste@mweb.co.za


No more pain and no more death And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Rev 21:1-4

God is the only true source of hope

In the Bible hope is an expression of certainty based on God’s promises rather than our own wishful thinking. An so, when we place our hope in God, it means we are assured that God will finally conquer evil and give us a share in the victory. God is our shelter and strength To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Ps 46 In God there is grace and mercy For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Heb 4:14B-16 (Also Eph 2:4-10) One day we shall see clearly Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 1 Cor 13:8-13

God promises eternal life to all who believe

All who are born on this earth must one day face death. HIV/AIDS makes us very aware of our own mortality but the Bible reveals the way to eternal life for all who accept God’s love and believe in Jesus. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. John 14:1-14

Our future is assured in Jesus Christ He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: John 1:11-12 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. John 10:28-29 God gives peace Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. Rom 5:1-11 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Phil 4:6-7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Pet 5:7 Present sufferings and future glory Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 1 Pet 1:3-9 God offers us rest through Jesus Christ Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matt 11:28-30 What really matters I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

Marriage

MARRIAGE; means unite in wedlock, the contract by which a man and a woman become husband and wife. “And the Lord God said; it is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a companion who will help him. So the Lord God formed from the soil every kind of animal and bird. He brought them to Adam to see what he would call them, and Adam chose a name for each one. He gave names to all the livestock, birds and wild animals. But still there was no companion suitable for him. So the Lord God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep. He took one of Adam’s ribs and closed up the place from which He had taken it. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib and brought her to Adam. At last! Adam exclaimed. She is part of my own flesh and bone! She will be called woman because she was taken out of a man. This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one. Now, although Adam and his wife were both naked, neither of them felt any shame.” Genesis 2: 18-25 God’s creative work was not complete until He made woman. He could have made her from the dust of the ground, as He made man. God chose, however, to make her from the man’s flesh and bone. In so doing, He illustrated for us that in marriage man and woman symbolically are united into one. This is a mystical union of the couple’s hearts and lives. Throughout the Holy Bible, God treats this special partnership seriously. If you are married or planning to be married, are you willing to keep the commitment that makes the two of you one? God forms and equips men and women for various tasks, but all these tasks lead to the same goal, honoring God. Man gives life to woman; woman gives life to the world. Each role carries exclusive privileges; there is no room for thinking that one sex is superior to the other. God gave marriage as a gift to Adam and Eve. They were created perfect for each other. Marriage was not just for convenience, nor was it brought about by any culture. It was instituted by God and has three basic aspects; STRONG MARRIAGES INCLUDE ALL THREE OF THESE ASPECTS 1. The man leaves his parents and, in a public act, promises himself to his wife. 2. The man & woman are joined together by taking responsibility for each other’s welfare & by loving the mate above all others. 3. The two are united into one in the intimacy and commitment of sexual union that is reserved for marriage Have you ever noticed how a little child can run naked through a room full of strangers without embarrassment? He is not aware of his nakedness, just as Adam and Eve were not embarrassed in their innocence. But after Adam and Eve sinned, shame and awkwardness followed, creating barriers between themselves and God. We often experience these same barriers in marriage. Ideally a husband and wife have no barriers, feeling no embarrassment in exposing themselves to each other or to God. But, like Adam and Eve, we put on fig leaves (barriers) because we have areas we don’t want our spouse, or God, to know about. Then we hide, just as Adam and Eve hid from God. In marriage, lack of spiritual, emotional, and intellectual intimacy usually precedes a breakdown of physical intimacy. In the same way, when we fail to expose our secret thoughts to God, we break our lines of communication with Him. “Do not make treaties of any kind with the people living in the land. They are spiritual prostitute, committing adultery against me by sacrificing to their gods. If you make peace with them, they will invite you to go with them to worship their gods, and you are likely to do it. And you will accept their daughters, who worship other gods, as wives of your sons. Then they will cause your sons to commit adultery against me by worshiping other gods. You must make no gods for yourselves at all.” Exodus 34: 15-17 “Do not intermarry with them, and don’t let your daughters and sons marry their sons and daughters. They will lead your young people away from me to worship other gods. Then the anger of the Lord will burn against you, and He will destroy you.” Deuteronomy 7: 3“So Israel lived among the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, and they intermarried with them. Israelite sons married their daughters and Israelite daughters were given in marriage to their sons. And the Israelites worshiped their gods.” Judges 3: 5-6 The Israelites discovered that relationships affect faith. The men and women of the surrounding nations were attractive to the Israelites. Soon they intermarried, and the Israelites accepted their pagan gods. By accepting their gods into their homes, the Israelites gradually began to accept the immoral practices associated with them. Most Israelites didn’t start out determined to be idolaters; they just added the idols to the worship of God. But before long they found themselves absorbed in pagan worship. A similar danger faces us. We want to befriend those who don’t know God, but through those friendships we can become entangled in unhealthy practices. Friendships with unbelievers are important, but we must accept people without compromising or adopting their patterns of behaviour. RELIGIOUS DIFFERENCES 1. It is easy to minimize religious differences in order to encourage the development of a friendship, but seemingly small differences can have an enormous impact upon a relationship. God gives us standards to follow for all. CCS INTERNATIONAL PO Box 2272 Beacon Bay 5205 Cell – 082 65 98 231 Email - louisjooste@mweb.co.za


2. Friendship with women of other religions may follow marriage which is a weakness of man. God knows our strengths and weaknesses, and His commands are always for our good. When people ignore God’s commands, negative consequences inevitably result. It is not enough to know God’s Word or even to believe it; we must follow it and apply it to our daily activities and decisions. Take God’s commands seriously. 3. Marriage with women of other religions may have political advantageous but spiritually it is deadly. 4. A woman of other religion can bring wicked influence into family, causing the generation to forget God and turn to her gods. WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT MARRIAGE 1. MARRIAGE IS GOD’S IDEA “And the Lord God said; it is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a companion who will help him. So the Lord God formed from the soil every kind of animal and bird. He brought them to Adam to see what he would call them, and Adam chose a name for each one. He gave names to all the livestock, birds and wild animals. But still there was no companion suitable for him. So the Lord God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep. He took one of Adam’s ribs and closed up the place from which He had taken it. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib and brought her to Adam. At last! Adam exclaimed. She is part of my own flesh and bone! She will be called woman because she was taken out of a man. This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.” Genesis 2: 18-24 2. COMMITMENT COMMITMENT IS ESSENTIAL TO A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE “So they called Rebekah; Are you willing to go with this man? They asked her. And she replied, Yes I will go. So they said good bye to Rebekah and sent her away with Abraham’s servant and his men. The woman who had been Rebekah’s childhood nurse went along with her. They blessed her with this blessing as she parted: Our sister, may you become the mother of many millions! May your descendants overcome all their enemies.” Genesis 24: 58-60 3. ROMANCE IS IMPORTANT “And because she was his cousin, the daughter of his mother’s brother, and because the sheep were his uncle’s, Jacob went over to the well and rolled away the stone and watered his uncle’s flock. Then Jacob kissed Rachel, and tears came to his eyes.” Genesis 29: 10-11 4. RAISING CHILDREN MARRIAGE CREATES THE BEST ENVIRONMENT FOR RAISING CHILDREN “You cry out, why has the Lord abandoned us? I’ll tell you why! Because the Lord witnessed the vows you and your wife made to each other on your wedding day when you were young. But you have been disloyal to her, though she remained your faithful companion, the wife of your marriage vows. Didn’t the Lord make you one with your wife? In body and spirit you are his. And what does he want? Godly children from your union. So guard yourself; remain loyal to the wife of your youth.” Malachia 2: 14-15 Guard yourself; always remain loyal to your wife, means to have the same commitment to marriage that God has to His promises for His people. Our passion should be reserved exclusively for our spouse. 5. UNFAITHFULNESS UNFAITHFULNESS BREAKS THE BOND OF TRUST, THE FOUNDATION OF ALL RELATIONSHIP “But I say that a man, who divorces his wife, unless she has been unfaithful, causes her to commit adultery. And anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.” Matthew 5: 32 Jesus said that divorce is not permissible except for unfaithfulness. This does not mean that divorce should automatically occur when a spouse commits adultery. The word translated UNFAITHFUL implies a sexual immoral life style, not a confessed and repented act of adultery. Those who discover that their partner has been unfaithful should first make every effort to forgive, reconcile, and restore their relationship. We are always to look for reasons to restore the marriage relationship rather than for excuses to leave it. 6. MARRIAGE IS PERMANENT “Since they are no longer two but one, let no one separate them, for God has joined them together.” Matthew 19: 6 Two schools of thought represented two opposing views of divorce. One group supported divorce for almost any reason. The other believed that divorce could be allowed only for marital unfaithfulness. Jesus focused on marriage rather than divorce. He pointed out that God intended marriage to be permanent.

Live a Magnificent Marriage

1. Pray the Will of GOD be done in your discussion 2. Marriage is GOD’s idea for mankind! He is the Author and the Finisher of ALL things He is the Protector of marriage He is the Head and He is the Foundation of marriage He is the GIVER of children and ALL Blessings in marriage! 3. A Commitment was made to GOD at the Day of our Marriage Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church. Ephesians 5:20-29 4. Leave your mother and father per Genesis 2 & Ephesians 5 Husbands love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. Ephesians 5:25, 31-33 The LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:21-24 5. Honour Christ as the Head and Foundation Matthew 7 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he/she that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:9-15 7. Forgiveness, Peace and Joy Bitterness, resentfulness and non forgiveness brings DEATH Christ forgave us ALL our sins at the tree on Calvary We all spat in His face and drove the nails in His hands; “Father FORGIVE them!” 8.

The TRUTH of Works and Faith

What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. (20) But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. James 2:14-26

Christ Jesus had to LEAVE heaven and AVAIL Himself to be CRUCIFIED on a cross at Calvary and be RAISED from the dead to secure our SALVATION – His works wrought salvation for sinners that BELIEVE on Him – Hallelujah! For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. (21) But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John3:16-21

But he/she that (1) doeth (2) truth cometh to (3) the light, that his/her deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John 3:21

Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?

25. Feeding the flock of God INSIDE the Body of Christ Question: Did the Lord Jesus save us To GROW in His image or For us to remain in our old carnal state?

• •

Answer: Christ Jesus divinely saved and ordained us • •

To GO and bear FRUIT that will remain and to LOVE our neighbour as per John15:16-17 God DESIGNED a comprehensive spiritual Word diet for each Christian to weekly participate of and thereby rapidly GROW in the likeness of His Son.

Conclusion: Every Christian that does not weekly PARTICIPATE in this God designed dietary plan can be assured of malnutrition and possible spiritual death – Amen.

Let us first consider the natural state of animals before we return to the flock (sheep) of the Lord Jesus Christ. The FOUR priorities of cattle feeding and nutrition are as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4.

General maintenance – Just to remain alive Fertility – The maintenance of reproduction, embryonic and fetus development and growth. Weight gain - Ensure good health Production - Milk

If any malnutrition occurs in the daily diet of the cattle, the negative effects will occur from the bottom priority (Item 4) upwards: 1. 2. 3. 4.

No production of milk, followed by Loss in weight, then Low fertility and lastly Death of the animal!

We now return to the flock (people) of God and consider the comprehensive spiritual WORD diet that the Lord God has DESIGNED for each Christian to weekly participate of and thereby GROW in the likeness of His Son. Then they (New Believers) that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. Acts 2:42 CCS INTERNATIONAL PO Box 2272 Beacon Bay 5205 Cell – 082 65 98 231 Email - louisjooste@mweb.co.za


The FOUR spiritual disciplines for all Christians to enjoy! 1. General maintenance – To remain alive in Christ • •

The Apostles’ doctrine - This is the weekly Bible study that is received in the local Assembly and ministered by the five Gift ministries of the Ascended Christ as per Ephesians 4:10-16 and Acts 2:42. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. (4) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me. John 15:3-4

2. Fertility – Maintain faithfulness, ministry development and growth in Christ. • •

The weekly Prayer meeting where the Believers gather to corporately pray together in the local Assembly under the Headship of Christ Jesus as per Romans 12. I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. (2) Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. (3) Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. (4) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. John 15:1-4

3. Holiness and Unity in the Faith – Weekly Strengthened in Spirit and in Truth. •

The weekly Breaking of Bread meeting is where the Believers gather together around the table of the Lord Jesus; examine and judging themselves whether they be in the FAITH and doing the Will of the Father amongst their spiritual family inside the local Assembly under the loving guidance of the Elders as per 1 Corinthians 11. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. (3) Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. (4) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. John 15:2-4

4. Spiritual maturity and the manifestation of Word ministry – Become a humble and faithful servant to all souls. •

The weekly fellowship meeting is where the Believers gather together and testify, share and mature in their ministry inside the local Assembly under the guidance of the Holy Spirit as per 1 Corinthians 12 and 13. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. (7) If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. (8) Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. (9) As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. (10) If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. John 15:5-10

THE ABUNDANT LIFE WELLNESS PLAN Practical Manual for Life


If any malnutrition occurs in the weekly diet of the sheep (saved souls), the negative effects will occur from the forth discipline upwards: 1. No manifestation of Word ministry in the Believers life • When the Believer does not participate in the weekly Fellowship meeting, there will be NO manifestation of the Much Fruit which Christ instructed per John 15:5 • The Christian will not be a humble and loving servant of Christ Jesus unto all souls. 2. A shortfall in the consecration and holiness of the Believers life • When the Believer does not participate at the weekly Breaking of Bread inside the Body of Christ, there will be a lacking in his or her holiness and consecration; and there will be NO manifestation of the More Fruit which Christ instructed His people per John 15:1-8 • The Christian will not be a consecrated minister of God’s Holy Word. 3. A shortfall in the faithfulness and growth in Christ Jesus • When the Believer does not participate at the weekly prayer meeting inside the Body of Christ, there will be NO manifestation of the Fruit which Christ instructed His people per John 15:1-10 • The Christian will not be a praying and testifying messenger of the Lord Jesus. 4. The Believer will lose his Salvation • When the Believer does not participate at the weekly Bible study inside the Body of Christ, there will be NO evidence of Christ indwelling the soul. • The Christian will wither away into a carnal mindset and he or she will DIE in his sin and burn in Hell! • If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. John 15:6 The Spiritual Menu as DESIGNED by God Almighty – The Four Spiritual Disciplines for the Members in the Body of Christ – Acts 2:42 The WORD is Awesome, Great, Full of Wisdom and contains many Mysteries to be revealed to us by the guidance of the Holy Spirit – Hallelujah! The Lord Jesus ordained and instructed that we receive and digest the WORD in four spiritual MEALS every week in the Body of Christ amongst co believers – GOD is Sovereign and this is HIS design for us to GROW and REMAIN saved! - Amen • Apostles Doctrine – Bible study – The Renewing of my mind – Romans 12:1-18 Thus we will be able to live the good, acceptable and perfect Will of God – Amen • Weekly Fellowship – Weekly Testifying of His goodness, His Provision and Protection, one to another as Co-believers in the Body of Christ • Corporate Prayers – Weekly praying together as a royal priesthood of Believers in the body of Christ, expressing our Faith and dependency on the Lord our God – Amen • Weekly Breaking of Bread – 1 Corinthians 11:23-33 – Vital to deal with my sins at the Table of the Lord! I need to examine myself, judge myself and then be chastened of the Lord in this life, BEFORE I stand at the Judgment seat of Christ. May the Lord Jesus OPEN our Spiritual Eyes to SEE and RECEIVE this Mystery of the Importance to EAT of HIS weekly spiritual MENU and to digest the WORD in four Portions EVERY week – Hallelujah! • My meat is to DO the Will of my Father – The Messiah – John 4 • Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to DO (obey) the will of Him that sent Me, and to finish His work.

27. A Prayer for the Salvation of a lost soul (whom is not seeking salvation) Most families have the challenge of unsaved members whom are either prodigal, lost, broken, addicted and some even in prison. However in Christ Jesus there is HOPE and GRACE for their broken lost souls – Hallelujah! For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Jesus should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Christ might be saved. John 3:16-17 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. And hereby we do know that we know Jesus, if we keep His commandments. 1 John 2:1-3 The unsaved love one cannot call-out to the Lord Jesus because of his own spiritual blindness and thus the need for an intercessor to Pray and Fast for the salvation of the lost soul. There are four components to this intercessory Prayer of divine Salvation: Firstly: You need to pray the Lord God for an Earthquake to occur in the life of the unsaved soul, trusting the Lord Jesus to BREAK the sand (SIN) foundation that the person is building his life upon. Until the foundation of sand is not exposed and broken by the Love of God, the person will NEVER be able to be re-established on the ROCK foundation of TRUTH – Amen. Secondly: You need to pray the Lord Jesus to make the unsaved person FALL OFF his “high horse” of pride, religion and strongholds (just like Saul of Tarsis) and for him/her to FALL into the loving arms of Abba Father. Until the person has not fallen OFF his/her “high horse”, the sinner will continue in his spiritual blindness and NEVER be able to be established in the way of the TRUTH and be saved by the LOVE of Christ Jesus – Amen. Thirdly: Pray that the Light of the Truth penetrate his/her heart and REMOVE the darkness of sin. In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians4:4-6 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I AM the Light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12 Fourthly: As the Christian interceding for the unsaved soul, you must ensure that you apply the following WORD Principles towards the person: Do NOT JUDGE this person that has disappointed you, rejected you or maybe even abused you. EXTEND the LOVE of Christ Jesus to the person (father, mother, husband, wife, brother or daughter) PRAY unto the Lord Jesus to activate the THREE points as summarized above and trust God to guide the person into the Light of Christ! THE ABUNDANT LIFE WELLNESS PLAN Practical Manual for Life


It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. Psalm 118:8-9 The prayer of faith shall save the (spiritually) sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice! Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. Philippians 4:4-9
