  1. Groundbreaking Service
    We are in that time period now about with it will be said: “And then …!” It being first Sunday, our service today included Holy Communion. The message for today centered on praise under the title: “What Is Praise?” 1Chron 28-9-21. Celebrating God as our heart’s true home. Who has your heart? God does! Scripture encourages us to praise the Lord.
    1Chron 29:20 (NKJV):
    Then David said to all the assembly, “Now bless the LORD your God.” So all the assembly blessed the LORD God of their fathers, and bowed their heads and prostrated themselves before the LORD and the king.
    Psa 106:1-2 (Living Bible):
    Praise the Lord! Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever!
    Psa 113:1
    Praise the Lord! Yes, give praise, O servants of the Lord. Praise the name of the Lord!
    Praise 117:1
    Praise the Lord, all you nations. Praise him, all you people of the earth.
    Psa 150:6
    Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord! Praise the Lord!

    If we are to obey these commands from the Father God, we need to learn what constitutes praise. Your posture can be a posture of praise. Even the way you look [you look like a praiser] can praise God. Webster writes that praise “includes expressing approval or favorable judgment of, and glorifying; especially by crediting with perfection. To commend someone is to entrust for care or preservation or to recommend as worthy of confidence.”

    The Father is worthy of our praise. He brought us out of situations from which we thought there was no good end.

    Ephesians 2:1-4
    1) Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. 2) You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world.[a] He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. 3) All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else.
    4) But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much,

    The Psalms of David are filled with testimonies of the Lord’s trustworthiness. Even when David was wrong, he chose to fall into the arms of the Lord.

    Psalm 7:1
    O LORD my God, in You I put my trust; Save me from all those who persecute me; And deliver me,

    The enemy is around, but really; as a defeated foe, he can only do just so much. Even in the midst of the storm, stay in praise. Give God the glory and honor and God will bring you out: praise your way out. Let people talk about you putting your faith and trust in God alone. You know that God will deliver you, because you know that God is rich in mercy. You being fooled by the enemy doesn’t negate God’s richness in mercy.

    Psalm 9
    1 I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart;
    I will tell of all Your marvelous works.
    2 I will be glad and rejoice in You;
    I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.

    David is saying that no circumstance will stop him from praising God. Putting ourselves in his place, we praise God with our whole spirit, soul and body. We can look over our life and see the point from which God has delivered us from our sin. He, the Lord God, has watched over us. Everyone has a “if not for the Lord” clause in their life.

    Psalm 9:10-11
    (10) And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. (11) Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion! Declare His deeds among the people.

    Each of us has an individual relationship with God. There is no need to base your relationship with God on another person. We have earthly relationships and they range in degree from helpful to necessary can also become challenging. The order of relationship should be you and God, first. Then everyone else. Never substitute God’s place with anyone else. You need God more than anything. His voice leads you into all truth.

    Psalm 16:1
    Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust.

    Psalm 20:7
    Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

    God is the one who has done the marvelous things for us. It is He who has set our feet on the proper path, one that brings wealth and riches in our houses.

  2. The last praise song for the final evening here at Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church’s Project Spirit Revival was a signature of the entire project’s purpose: Moving Forward. The In Christ New Hope Ministry youth choir ministered through this song, reminding us that “we’re not look back,” and that “in You all things are made new.” The women sang, the men sang, and we all sang together giving God much glory.

    Thereafter, Pastor took a few moment to give freely from our “Ministry on CD” so that God’s people could “taste and see that God is good.” The series given out were: The Mind of Christ, Righteousness Is Revealed (the 2010 Believers Meeting), A Connection to Health Through the Holy Communion, The Abundant Life!, and Four Timeless Teachings.

    The final praise song was Pastor Breedlove’s favorite: In Christ Alone. So, after hours devoted to praise and worship, testimonies, cheerful giving and prayer; it is now time for the meal. Pastor Breedlove conducted a brief review of the past two nights, touching on Romans 8:28 (all things work together…); Romans 8:1 (there is now no condemnation…); John 8:1-11 (the woman caught in adultery); John 3:16-17 (God so loved the world…). “Only the devil, you yourself, and the people around you will bring your sins to your remembrance,” Pastor Breedlove said, because God has purposed to see Jesus when He looks at us today. We are covered with Jesus’ blood and completely righteous. The Father God wants to do us good,” Pastor said, “all the days of your life.” In summation, The Father God is not holding anything against us. All judgment was placed on Jesus Christ at the cross.

    “When your past rises up and tries to knock you down, run to Christ Jesus. Think on Hebrews 8:10-12. So beginning, Pastor launched into the deep things of God. “Knowing,” Pastor said, “that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, and simply receiving the gift of no condemnation, will give you the power to go and sin no more.” Coming closer the the stumbling block with which some Believers struggle, Pastor said that we were not given the Law (of Moses) to keep it, but to give us an understanding of sin. “There is a struggle about which the Apostle Paul wrote in Romans in 7:15 (For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.) that defines the state of some Believers today.” Paul desires to do good; yet he does not. Paul desires not to sin, but he does. Oh my goodness! Or, as Paul says in verse 24: O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

    And Paul points to his only escape: Christ Jesus who made him free from the law of sin and death. With great boldness, Pastor continued with Romans 8:3 (For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:). Honing and sharpening the people’s understanding, and illuminating the point, Pastor repeat: What the law couldn’t do, God did; what the law couldn’t do, God did; what the law couldn’t do, God did!

    It is a wonderful thing to journey through the Scriptures and learn that all avenues leave to Christ. Pastor moved around in the Scriptures sharing from several of books; from Psalms to Genesis to John. We ended in 2 Corinthians 5:15-21 which reads as follows:

    16) Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

    17) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

    18) And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

    19) To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

    20) Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

    21) For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

    This recalls the praise song that Jesus is “All together lovely to me.”
    Amen.

  3. We’ve come to the final night of celebration with Project Spirit Revival. Deacon Knight opened by expressing unity in the faith. In one accord, God’s people began to sing: “I’m so glad, Jesus lifted me, singing glory hallelujah!” Next came the Scripture, rehearsing a stanza of Amazing Grace in our hearing, and the foundation for the evening: Romans 8:28 (And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.). We came, this evening, to God in prayer; thanking Him for what He has done for us: You never leave us nor forsake us, You provide a hedge of protection, You cause us to pray for others who are sick or don’t know You, and to pray for the church and her leaders, and for Your faithfulness over 25 years of grace for others because You are lifted up through Project Spirit Revival.

    The first testimony reached back 20 years to thank God for deliverance for crack cocaine, and from the darkest of streets in this evil world. She remembered, she said, from whence she had come but more importantly, from whence comes her help. She remembered Pastor Sam McCree (has had many others throughout the three and-a-half days) and the early days of Project Spirit Revival.

    The next testimony’s hallmark was total dependence on God. A few months after coming to the United States, she lost everything and tried to end her own life as she could not get help from any governmental agency. She said, “it’s not until you can’t get help from nobody, that you know who God is. The loss of all things can often lead to the gaining of everything. She said she didn’t care if she looked stupid praising God; she knew she would get a stupid blessing! Indeed, she cries out to the Lord: “thank you for my food, I don’t know where it’s coming from, but it comes every day.” It has to make you remember: Isaiah 55:1 which calls to us: “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.” The provision of God surrounds her each month, as “a woman calls and says come get your rent.” And following this, the rejoicing in the church was something to behold! Glory can be giving to God in many ways: speaking, teaching, clapping and, like David: dancing!

    These and other testimonies over the evening show us how powerful and totally concerned with us our God truly is and how He moves on our behalf.

  4. Pastor Breedlove began by ministering to the people. As the lines began to form, we prayed and thanked God that His people were coming to Him, in faith, and that recovery would be theirs according to the word: ” … they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16:18)

    Picking up from last night, Pastor rehearsed John 10:10 and John 3:16-17 reminding the church that Jesus came for our benefit, not to condemn us — but there is an enemy who is bent on opposing us. Knowing he is condemned to a terrible end, Satan tries to take our eyes away from the prize of abundant life given to us in Christ.

    Moving into our victory, Pastor drew from Ephesians 1:3 which declares: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” Pointing to verses 15-23, Pastor released the spirit of wisdom into the congregation. Using a timely activation, he urged us to look there (at each other!), and see “a new creature;” then he decreed that “as He is,” (at the right hand of the Father), “so are we now.” Glory to God! Everything, from this day forward, is working together for your good, he decreed.

    Taking the Word at face value, Pastor taught on the great love of God written in Ephesians 2; oh how God loved us even when we were in sin … living ungodly lives of injury and pain in utter darkness … to learn that Jesus has forgiven us for our past, present, and future sin. God does not hold anything against us; we can always run to Him no matter what happens (or what the enemy, with lies and deceit, tells you is happening). Our state of continual forgiveness led unerringly to our righteousness through Christ Jesus the spotless Lamb who takes away the sins of the world!

    The final Word of the evening was to illuminate the biggest challenge for the Believer, which is to enter into the rest of God. Can you let God liberate your walk with Him? Serving God should not be a chore or something that wears you out. The religious leaders Christ spoke to in Matthew 11:28-30 were under the Law (of Moses):
    (28) Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (29) Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (30) For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

    Pastor noted that our soul entails our mind, our will, and our emotions; all of which need rest. He dwelled for a few moments on the revelation that we have never really seen each other, only the dwelling place (of our spirit); the real you is on the inside! Therefore, do not be disturbed by the aspect of physical death (it is the death of your body, not you); and, in any case, you have authority over death and can make your own appointment.

    The service closed, as always, with invitations to receive the Lord Jesus Christ and to be filled with the Holy Spirit, with the reminder that those who came for healing have received it. Bless God!

  5. Here we are again, on Friday, at Zion Hill celebrating the 25th year of Project Spirit Revival with praise and glory to Him who is worthy. The Deacon began with a message of favor on our lives, and then a reading of Romans 8:28 confirming this comfort: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

    The opening prayer was simply beautiful; a true heart-to-heart, from man to his Creator, thanking God what He has done. Thanks for families that have been rejoined, lives spared from the ravages of drugs and wicked people.

    The testimonies were about the saving grace of God. One woman spoke of the many times God had spared her life. Notwithstanding this mercy, she continued in darkness until the day she laid in the street and wished for an end. And though her life didn’t end then, she began to come to the end of herself. When she saw the things she had done begin in her son’s life, she sent him away to get help. He found The Helper We All Need! And then he came home and shared the good news with her. Her testimony continued with one faith project after another; and out of them all the Lord delivered her safely. Indeed, hers was an incredible journey. We heard her speak of the good works of God and we praised Him.

    Some testimonies were personal, others were about friends and family, or reflections upon what had been spoken. Elder Cherri gave a word of encouragement as she reflected upon the recent loss of her aunt who was a member of Project Spirit Revival.

    The act of giving testimony is often like revealing a deep dark secret; something one tries very hard to keep hidden. You don’t often expect to find humor. But the woman who stood next spoke of trying to commit suicide by turning on her oven only to discover; after patiently waiting to succumb to the gas she thought would fill up the house, that RG&E had turned off her gas that day.

    Another testimony of God’s excellence came from a young man who found a type of confidence he didn’t know existed when the Lord pulled him out of a coma. It wasn’t the doctors, he said, it was the Lord, and now he knew that he was a new creature in Christ Jesus living clean and sober and giving God all the glory!

    Though most spoke their testimony, one woman sang in a most beautiful, rich, well controlled voice! Hers was a voice that had the deep resonance of things gone through, of trials and tribulations, one well-acquainted with giving God glory!

    Another mother, overcome with joy, spoke of God’s faithfulness. To loud acclaim, she pointed to her son and told the church that God had returned him to her. Many must have been thinking of the parable of the lost son (Luke 15).

    Thereafter, there was a word of welcome between both churches, Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church and In Christ New Hope Ministry.

  6. Pastor Breedlove taught tonight at Zion on “The Gift of No Condemnation” using the woman caught “in the very act” of adultery (John 8:1-11); the solution to which, in her day, was stoning. In the face of her crime, Jesus makes a glorious offer after He asks about her accusers (who dropped their stones and beat a hasty retreat). Finding none, He says with great grace: “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. After this gift of no condemnation, He then gives her this command which she is now empowered to walk out: “go and sin no more” and she receives the liberty of a world-overcomer.

  7. The opening evening of Zion Hill’s Project Spirit Revival started out with the deeply moving, traditional hymn “Amazing Grace;” truly an elegant companion to the service’s theme: “For God’s Purpose” (Romans 8:28). Rich spiritual praise began to usher in the presence of the Lord God. The drawing power of His presence drew forth many exciting testimonies of freedom! One sister spoke of being delivered from drugs and despair. One gentleman came in to visit with the home pastor and, hearing the call for testimonies, he took a few steps, spoke to himself, turned around, and walked back into the Sanctuary to give God the glory in the assembly. He spoke of tragedies wherein he was yet able to find the light of God to lead him out. Another brother spoke of God’s faithfulness to send the Word to him while he sat in darkness. From a past of dope, thievery and homelessness, he declared that he knew he was “a new creature in Christ Jesus” and “free!” He ended by saying that he was no longer looking for dope but for hope.” Another sister spoke of putting down her cane and walking after having hands laid upon her. She heard the good news that “God loves you” and she received her healing by faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ.

    Many more such testimonies came forth: people who had torn themselves from their families leaving spouse and children shattered and broken. But God turned all their lives around giving them victory over the works of the enemy. People continued to recall the grace of God and share the awesome work of the Lord in their lives. May many benefit from the telling and the reading; may God have all the glory!

  8. Hello All,
    Just wanted to share with the body what a wonderful time we had at the Judah Youth Retreat on December 18-19. The retreat kicked off in prayer and dinner which of course is always a great begining according to the youth; then we went into praise and worship lead by both Minister Dave and Pat McCleary. The Youth learned new songs and really got their worship groove on. lol……. after worship were our break out sessions where the youth split up according to ages. As always the Word Unplugged session was great, both the students and teachers learned from each other. Later on from 11pm-until the last child fell asleep were fun and games. i mean i have seen sore losers at different sporting events but none as sore as the fellas who lost to the girls in Taboo. Man oh Man …… on Saturday we started off with light worship and then Shanetra taught a class on today’s music letting the kids know: “always be aware of what you’re listening to…” … know what the artist and song stands for before you release the words out of your mouth. Shanetra did an Excellent Job……we ended with a talent show. Someone did a poem about a Jonas brother i think….yeah that’s right, a Jonas brother……well all in all it was Awesome thanks to the ministry team Min. Tori, Shanetra, Powell, McCleary’s Darcel, Jamaal all who helped and made it possible: you GUYS ROCK.

    MADELL A. OUT

  9. Greetings Karen,
    We bless God and His infinite mercy that you found the teaching useful! He who endures until the end receives a great reward. You may find, as I did, that suffering (meaning: putting up with, with the expectation of coming out on top) goes faster when paired with resting in the Lord; I’ve learned to receive His finished work on the cross as the only work that ever liveth for me to be victorious. This new attitude of gratitude came about by the teaching of the Gospel at In Christ.

    To help share the Gospel, we’ve started a petite but potent electronic newsletter; we call it an “e-blast,” that highlights recent teachings by Pastor Breedlove. It’s an excellent tool and we’d love to share it with you, especially upcoming e-blasts featuring our current series, “No Condemnation.” If you’d like to receive the free e-blast, just leave a reply here and I’ll send it right out.

    Be well.
    Elder J. K.
    In Christ New Hope Ministry, Inc.
    P.S.: Anyone reading this message may also request the e-blast.

  10. Greetings Everyone!

    Sister Marriott’s teaching was a blessing. She focused on the fruit of the Spirit and right now I’m dealing with long suffering. There are many areas of my life where I feel I’ve waited and suffered too long. Just when I expect a positive move, I find I must not have learned the lesson being taught because I’m in the same place just holding on.

    Her message was one of understanding, hope and encouragement.

    Thanks to the Women’s Ministry at ICNHM for inviting me to this special time of fellowship and sharing.

    Thanks to Cathy Little for being a great friend and an awesome woman of God.

  11. My favorite part of the “Plant Me” day, overall, was the use of prayer stations. One of the privileges of our Covenant relationship with God the Father through our High Priest Christ Jesus is to convene corporate prayer. It’s essential for the community/state/region/county/planet to have a spiritual focus and unite in agreement to achieve it. I noticed, too, that it enriched the women in the prayer circle. Many, if not all in my experience, walked away clearly touched and resting in the awesome calm of engaging the Father’s heart.

    Concerning our erudite speaker, it was most certainly hearing Minister Marriott’s phrase “the whispers of heaven” for exquisitely showing us how we should and can be perfectly attuned to the person of the Holy Spirit . . . that His whisper gets our attention!

    I joyfully give honor to the Women’s Fellowship planning team for creating a warm, spirit-filled, engaging and purposeful atmosphere for all of our participants.
