41th the study of the ‘book of John’ [Sermon summary] John 4: 43-45 After the two days, he left for Galilee. (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.) When he arrived in Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him. They had seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, for they also had been there. These verses are one of the difficulties to interpret. Because Jesus’ words to Galilee were quoted in different situations in the other three Gospels. But if you follow John’s emphasis, the interpretation of this text is not so difficult. Previously Jesus ministered in Galilee. But at that time the Nazarenes sought to kill Jesus….

[John 21:1-11] Afterward, Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Tiberias. It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (called Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?” “No,” they answered. He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they…

John 20:30-31 Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. Why was the Gospel of John written? The author tells us why in the verses that close chapter 20. John is saying that there were many other things about which he could have written but that the things he did write were chosen rigorously on the basis of a two-part goal. That goal centers in a person, the Lord Jesus Christ. The first part, the chief, is that those learning about…

On November 18, Jubilee Church offered the Sunday Service and the sermon was preached from Psalm 23:1-6, titled “My Cup Overflows,” and the worship was focused on preparing the hearts of gratitude as the Thanksgiving Day is approaching. “In Psalm 23, we read the confession of David. In David, he seems to have an overflowing joy, he seems to have the abundant gratitude. The faith of David shows how he was able to be thankful and grateful. More than we think what should I do for God, God wants us to remember the grace what He has poured out. That’s when we can have the gratitude. The grace and gratitude are connected. When we lose the grace, we can also…

On October 14, Jubilee Church offered the Sunday Service and the sermon was preached from Acts 10:17-48 titled, “They Have Received The Holy Spirit Just As We Have.” All Jubilee Church members continued to meditate on the work of the Holy Spirit opening the door of the Gospel to the Gentiles through the story of Peter meeting Cornelius. Pastor Petra preached, “Peter says about his realization how true it is that God does not show favoritism. God is different, the human, we all are prone to prejudice, by treating, judging others differently, but God is gracious and he gently break us of this favoritism, discrimination, all the biases, and prejudice so that He can work through us. God wants to…

Southeast region prayer meeting was held at Jubilee Church with the members of Atlanta Bethel Community Church. This gathering was the second gathering following the meeting in July. The precious members from Atlanta came to Nashville to strengthen the church mission and the members of Jubilee Church. As they gathered for the prayer meeting, they started with the praise and worship and the message was preached by Pastor Petra from Luke 22:54-62 about the denial of Peter. “Right in front of the cross, there was no power in Peter to face the death. Even though Peter had a great courage and strong confidence, he denied the Lord. Compared to Jesus who truly went to the death, Peter didn’t have the…

On September 23, Jubilee Church Sunday Service continued the Acts sermon series from chapter 9:19-23 titled, “From Persecutor to Preacher.” “After Saul’s conversion, he was spending the time with the disciples in Damascus. Once he was the greatest opponent of the Church, but he became one of the Christians who he hunted, tortured, and killed,” said the preacher. “This was the fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah 11:6 where the wolf will live with the lamb and there will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. Right after Saul’s conversion, he immediately started to witness and preach Jesus as the…

On September 16, Jubilee Church offered the Sunday Service, and the Acts sermon series was continued from chapter 9 verses 10 to 19 titled, ‘This Man Is My Chosen Instrument.’ “Through the story of Saul’s conversion, we can see how the Lord accepted the greatest enemy, Saul, through his forgiveness, and He also sent the mediator, Ananias to restore Saul’s sight and heal him. Saul being shocked by the unconditional love was praying and didn’t eat or drink anything,” said Pastor Petra. “When the Lord called us, He has a clear plan and reason why God chose us. Saul was a chosen instrument to proclaim the name of the Lord. Though the Lord teared him up, He restored him again…
