Important Details Mentioned in the Sermon:

“In my name,” “In Jesus’ name,” or “In his name.” are phrases we see all throughout the Bible. As one sermon on the topic noted (and don’t worry this quote is in your bulletin)..The devils were powerless because of his name (Luke 10:17). The demons were cast out in his name (Mark 16:17-18). Healing occurred in his name (Acts 3:6, 3:16, 4:10). Salvation comes in his name (Acts 4:12, Rom. 10:13). We are to baptize in his name (Matt. 28:19). We are justified in his name (1 Cor. 6:11). Everything we do and say is done in his name (Col. 3:17)”.

John 14:13-14; John 16:23-24; John 20:31; 1 John 5:14-15
Jesus Christ spoke with authority (cf. Matthew 7:29; Mark 1:22).

2/3 – Update

Blessings in Christ Jesus,
I don’t know about you but I am excited to take on February 2017. I believe God has blessings and obstacles waiting for each of us individually and all of us collectively and am excited to see God further reveal His faithfulness.
I wanted to provide some further thoughts on salvation (as I had preached about it this past Sunday at BPBC) and provide some resources on that topic for you as well. I have a couple of Facebook notes that I had written on the topic of Salvation. You will find those links below. However I just wanted to share some highlights from those notes as I reviewed last night and this morning.
“According to 1 Corinthians 15:1-2, we believe in vain if we do not believe the message that Paul preached, and in Galatians 1:6-9, the man who preaches and throws people into confusion with another gospel other than the gospel that was preached by the Apostles is ETERNALLY CONDEMNED. Yikes! That is enough incentive for me to make sure that I am in line with the teaching of the Apostles.” – Pastor Michael Miano
In my studies of Scripture and following proper Biblical interpretation and context I have seen that Biblical salvation always has to do with God being understood as King!
I mentioned a bit this past Sunday that coming to a truly salvific moment requires work of the Spirit of God and is a work done in those He calls and elects. Natural theology as it has come to be known is to be rejected, and as some scholars have noted it comes close to “robbing God of His glory” when we say that man can come to truly know God by observing nature.
There is a damaging trend in the Christian Church – the ‘knowledge of God’ has been turned into “religious feel good messages/ cliches” and a captivation with having a partially-sanitized self-righteousness (you know- it’s all about not smoking, not drinking, and not doing the things the ‘big bad world does’). Instead the knowledge of God should be leading us to worldview apologetics (1 Peter 3:15), namely asking ourselves and others what source of knowledge and wisdom is lead our lives? Are we falling in love with our Creator by the revealing of Himself and His Will, or falling into false narratives?


Also, here is a great video presentation done by a brother with a beautiful accent on fulfilled covenant salvation –https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADKqHVYlXAg
**Remember our Adult Sunday School now starts at 9AM. Also, feel free to join us for a Saturday Bible Study anytime, we follow the dates and reading at the following link,http://oneyearbibleonline.com/weekly-one-year-readings/?version=49&startmmdd=0101

1/13 Update

Blessings in Christ,

I pray that this email finds you all having a blessed day, surely Friday the 13th has various superstitions following it. May our Lord be glorified through our thoughts of Him throughout the day (creating a “superstition” of our own).

I know for me the week felt a bit out of order, noting that we did not gather this past Sunday. I thank those of you who have been in prayer for the Pace/ Glynn family at the passing into another dimension of Mr. Lonnie Pace. It’s a praise that the family has acknowledged the noted presence of our prayers. Also, we have a praise that Terri’s mom’s surgery, which we had been praying for went well. Terri expressed heartfelt thanks for the prayer warriors at BPBC.

I wanted to share some brief announcements:

Tomorrow’s Saturday Morning Bible Study will be canceled. I apologize, however last minute I realized I had some prior commitments.

Prayerfully you are continuing with a Bible reading plan. While we are not meeting as a grou., you can surely continue or “catch up” with your reading by reviewing the plan we have decided to follow in our Saturday Mornings. Here is a link, http://oneyearbibleonline.com/weekly-one-year-readings/?version=51&startmmdd=0101

Earlier today I was able to get back on track with my Miano Gone Wild Online Radio program in which I detailed some of the reading in a summaried fashion. Here is the link for your listening, http://www.mianogonewild.com/video/40/mgw-online-radio-authentic-2017-including-an-interview-with-mr-jeff-rogers

Also, I hope each of you found opportunity to watch the video sermon I posted for last Sunday regarding the renewing of our minds the the importance, as well as the value of Scripture. Here is a link, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFO1TLecx0I

I look forward to seeing each and all of you this coming Sunday at The Blue Point Bible Church. Adult Sunday School at 9:30AM & Worship Service begins at 10:30AM.

In Service to Him,

Pastor Michael Miano

1/6 – BPBC Update

Blessings in Christ Jesus!

I hope to hear that despite our living in a rather chaotic world that each of you found opportunity to thank God for blessings in your lives. I know my heart always aches when we begin the hear and tragedies strike, therefore I ask that we find situations of those who are suffering and lift those people up in our prayers.

I look forward to going through an Examination of Hebrew Storytelling through Jonah tomorrow morning at BPBC’s Saturday Morning Bible Study (9AM). Prayerfully, if you local you might consider joining us.

I wanted to share some updates along with our weekly praises and prayers. I hope to hear that some if not all of you started a Bible reading plan. If not, it’s not too late, so here is a reminder of the different plans:

90 Days through the Bible – http://www.thebrooknetwork.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/BibleIn90Days.pdf

6 Months Overview of the Bible – https://www.alextran.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Zondervan_-_180_Day_Guided_Tour.pdf

Remember saints, 2 Timothy 2:15.
