4/28 – BPBC Updates

Blessings in Christ,
 
I pray that this week was blessed and productive for each one of you.
 
Unfortunately I will not be attending the 2017 Spring Bible Conference at Berean Bible Church this weekend as planned. Instead, I will be attending the Dare 2 Defend Conference at Smithtown Gospel Tabernacle here on Long Island. Long story short, there were some rental car issues and bad planning on the travel. God has His reasons. Amen? However, the weekend schedule at BPBC will remain the same (Sat. Bible study canceled and Pastor Steve Schilling leading our “Worship Service” this Sunday). If you are interested in the Dare to Defend Conference, here is a link – http://www.newyorkapologetics.com/conference/
 
The next couple weeks/months are looking to be rather busy in and through The Blue Point Bible Church. This is the season to “Spring into Action” and you can learn about that and more by visiting our website and clicking on the tab – “Spring into Action”. We have National Day of Prayer (May 4th), Intro to XD Youth (May 12th), Great Brookhaven Clean up (May 20th), and then HOPE Day in Brentwood on June 3rd. A special thanks to those of you who have already signed up to serve.
 
A couple updates….I re-preached the Sunday sermon to make details I shared about Ezekiel’s hope for resurrection a bit more clear. You can listen to the re-recorded sermon at the following link, http://www.buzzsprout.com/11630/504594-ezekiel-s-hope-for-resurrection
 
I was not a fan of my radio interview on “Ringside Politics” on Monday morning. At this link you will find a YouTube video of my explaining why as well as a link in the description to listen to the interview for yourself (I come on the show at the 3:00:00 mark). Also, in this video I finally teach through some details on Gog & Magog – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdcQ-GOZGoY
 
Also, I just finished reading an excellent “textbook” style writing called “Antichrist” by Bernard McGinn. I enjoyed the book so much and took so many notes that I had to write a review. You can read my review at the following link, https://mianogonewild.wordpress.com/2017/04/28/human-fascination-with-evil/
Have a blessed weekend.
In Service to Him,
Pastor Michael Miano

4/21 – BPBC Update

Whewww, I’ll tell you, it would sure seem that my week was invigorated with some “Resurrection Power”. Surely this was needed as we seek to “Spring into Action” at The Blue Point Bible Church. Be prepared for a busy next couple months of serving God with all our minds, hearts, souls, and strength. Much of these details will be shared in this update. Also by Sunday, you will be able to visit our website (www.bluepointbiblechurch.org) and click on the “Spring into Action” tab to stay informed.

In review, Mr. Mert Melfa our video guy, has put together all the videos from the Revelation Revealed Bible Conference and emailed a link to those who he had on an email list. I wanted to provide the link again and in this public blog, so here it is – https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1h2WwSa-8dMGmcP7qTKQ3pACwxgpvzBb Also, I blogged a “Part 2” of the review that I have offered about our conference a couple of weeks ago. You can access that blog at the following link, https://powerofpreterism.wordpress.com/2017/04/21/reviewing-the-revelation-revealed-bible-conference-part-2/

Again I mention that we are in the season of “Springing into Action” at BPBC. Below I will list some of the upcoming events where you can serve in some sort of fashion.

4/14 – BPBC Update

Blessings in Christ Jesus,

I pray that each of you had a blessed and set apart “Holy Week” for the glory of God and the edification of yourselves. May we be a people who see every week as “Holy Week” and every day a day that the Lord has made.

I want to provide some of the weekly updates and announcements, as well as our weekly praises and prayers. In Sundays sermon and the bulletin I provided a sort of outline regarding the parables of Jesus Christ (namely how they applied to the “hope of Israel”/ Kingdom of God), that our beloved former Pastor Claire Chandler put together. Here is a link to that resource: http://www.bluepointbiblechurch.org/peace/?p=1153

Earlier in the week I listened to a podcast between Travis Finley (Rethinking Revelation podcast) and Mr. Sam Frost. The discussion and reviews that followed seemed to be a popular thing. You can find a link to the podcast and read my review at the following link, https://powerofpreterism.wordpress.com/2017/04/11/sam-stop-talking-a-review-of-the-smackdown-on-rr/

Also, I have an exciting announcement that has come to fruition as of this week. One of the highlights of Mr. Ed Stevens’ upcoming Niagara Preterist Conference in Niagara Falls, NY, July 20-22, 2017, will be an exchange between him and myself and Mr. Stevens regarding the two views of “bodily change” (explaining our positions CBV or IBV using 1 Corinthians 15:50-57). More information coming soon.

You will find a graphic that highlights Good Friday & Resurrection Sunday/ Easter attached to this email.

TONIGHT at 6:30PM or 7PM (either way it will be a short Good Friday service), and on Sunday we will have Easter Breakfast at 9AM in the basement of BPBC and then a traditional service to follow at 10:30AM. Prayerfully you have invited some friends and family to join us for these events.

4/7 – BPBC Updates

Blessings in Christ Jesus,

I hope to hear that this week provided you with ample opportunity to praise God for all that He has created, accomplished, and is doing in the world. I know the spring season brings me empowerment to “spring into action” for His glory!

I want to supply you with some announcements/ updates, as well as our weekly praises and prayers as of Sunday, April 2nd, 2016. Also, you can now visit the website and see the updated monthly calendar. Here is a link, http://www.bluepointbiblechurch.org/peace/?page_id=11

I pray that each of you were able to read through the part 1 review that I wrote up about our conference. If not, here is the link, https://powerofpreterism.wordpress.com/2017/04/04/reviewing-the-revelation-revealed-bible-conference-part-1/

I will be writing up a couple of reviews.

Unfortunately, I saw the email from Mr. Mert Melfa that the Revelation Debate I had with Pastor Earl Wallace will not be uploaded to YouTube. Here is the link to the Facebook Live video that was done (also unfortunate is the quality is a bit choppy), https://www.facebook.com/mert.melfa/videos/654887674709590/

For the month of April at The Blue Point Bible Church we will be focused on “Hope Fulfilled”, namely how it applies to the reality of resurrection that OC Israel hoped for. We have Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Resurrection Sunday (Easter) all this month. Oh and let us not forget Passover. We will combine our Passover and Good Friday celebration. I have attached a graphic giving you dates and times of services at Blue Point in these regards.

This coming Sunday will be the 2nd Sunday of the month when we talk a bit about serving the world. I will be sharing a host of details on how you can “spring into action” with us at The Blue Point Bible Church this coming Sunday, April 9th (and following that the details will be provided on our website).

Also, here is a link detailing some of my thoughts about the ongoing and God-glorifying reformation that Full Preterism is having within the Christian Church – https://powerofpreterism.wordpress.com/2017/04/07/pushing-preterism/

I look forward to all that God will do in and through is in this new season.

In Service to Him,

Pastor Michael Miano
