12/24 – Updates

Blessings in Him! Merry Christmas Eve!

I pray that each of you are having a blessed day finding joy and peace in Him. Don’t let the craziness that characterizes this season overwhelm!

Prayerfully, I will see each of you tomorrow as we celebrate “A Mystical Christmas” in our worship service at The Blue Point Bible Church. I know I am excited to share the message prepared!

I wanted to send this reminder, some updates, as well as our praise and prayers in this email.

On Christmas Sunday, we will have no Sunday School, and worship will begin at 10:30AM. If you come early, we will have coffee and donuts prepared. I look forward to seeing some friends and family of our congregants celebrating with us.

I apologize that I do not have many updates to share, as it has been a rather busy week, however I will be posting another video on YouTube regarding “Gaining a Narrative Theology” later today. In case you have not seen it, here is a link to part 1 (which will also give you a link for my YouTube account), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i02ShL9Obio

Also, there was a minor issue with my Miano Gone Wild Online Radio podcast website, therefore my interview with Mr. Jeff Rogers regarding “Calvinistic Preterism” will be delayed until Monday.

Here is a link that will take you to our weekly praises and prayers as of Sunday, December 18th, 2016 – http://www.bluepointbiblechurch.org/peace/?page_id=893

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Be blessed in Him,

Pastor Mike Miano

12/16 – BPBC Updates from Pastor Mike

Blessings in Christ,

It is my hope and pray that each of you had a blessed week – finding time to glorify God throughout your day. Earlier in the week, I made a post on social media concerning my waking thoughts on giving glory to God. I said the following, “Everything in our lives and what we do with our lives should elevate Jesus Christ (so that through us people come to see Jesus “high and lifted up”), this is what it means to give glory to God”.

Thank each of you who reached out to express prayers while I was sick. I’m still not 100%, however I continued in prayer through the week and know very well that God is our ultimate Healer.

TOMORROW (SATURDAY) MORNING!

I’m glad to say I am back on my feet and will be at Bible Study tomorrow morning at The Blue Point Bible Church. 🙂

Saturdays at 9AM, and we urge you to come at 8:30AM with any questions. We will be doing a part 2 tomorrow regarding “Hebrew Storytelling: Examining Job and Jonah”. I look forward to seeing some of you then.

STUDY RESOURCES

I quickly wanted to share some study resources for you to further grow in your understanding of His Word.

I have been listening to Travis Finley’s podcasts, Rethinking Revelation. I strongly recommend listening to his stuff because he is insightful, has great character, and offers challengings thoughts to his listeners as well as some of the great guests he brings on the show.

Interview with Dr. Michael Heiser: https://www.spreaker.com/user/rtb4tftx/episode-17-interview-w-mike-heiser

Interview with Dr. Don K. Preston: https://www.spreaker.com/user/rtb4tftx/episode-19-morning-musings-with-dr-don-k

Interview with Dr. John Walton: https://www.spreaker.com/user/rtb4tftx/episode-20-dr-john-walton

There is show wherein my thoughts about understanding the Bible are shared around the 35 minute mark, however Travis’ whole show is great stuff! Listen here, https://www.spreaker.com/user/rtb4tftx/episode-21-follow-up-thoughts-on-walton-

Dr. Michael Heiser, who I mentioned above, is a proponent of the “Divine Heavenly Council” view which I completely disagree with, and he authored a book I recently just finished and wrote a review of called “The Unseen Realm”. You can read my review at the following link, https://mianogonewild.wordpress.com/2016/12/14/spiritual-stuff-disagreeing-with-dr-michael-heiser/

Also, as mentioned in our Sunday bulletin, I have now begun a Youtube series on “Gaining a Narrative Theology”. You can watch part 1 at the following link, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i02ShL9Obio&feature=youtu.be

Don’t forget….Christmas is on a Sunday this year, and we will have a “Mystical Christmas” service at Blue Point Bible Church on Sunday, December 25th at 10:30AM. Sunday school will be canceled. See below.

In Service to Him,

Pastor Michael Miano
