FS WEEKLY EMAIL BIBLE STUDY – LESSON 4 (CHAPTER 3) – 11/30/19

LESSON 4- Ephesians

Chapter 3

The Mystery- Revelation

Our Inheritance in Christ Cont.’

 

Chapter 3:1-21

Ephesians 3:18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height- (of His love)

 

 

3:18 This is your reservoir of superhuman strength which causes you as saints to collectively grasp (come to terms with, make one’s own) the limitless extent of His love in breadth, in length, in height (rank), and the extremities of its depths. Mirror Translation

Eph.3:19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

3:19 I desire for you to become intimately acquainted with the love of Christ on the deepest possible level, far beyond the reach of a mere academic, intellectual grasp. Within the scope of this equation God finds the ultimate expression of Himself in you (so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God). Mirror Translation

“And to know the love of Christ” The experience of knowing Christ and the love that comes from Him is the edification, and it is what Paul desires for the Ephesians. As you learn Bible truth and apply faith to it, you grow in grace and in your knowledge of the Lord and

Savior Jesus Christ.”which passes knowledge”

The verb “passes” is HUPERBALLO,”to surpass; to throw beyond”. Also translated as surpass, excel, exceed, transcend.

Knowledge” is GNOSIS, “mental understanding in the human mind. Knowledge of the love of Christ (EPIGNOSIS) is produced by edification of the spirit man and surpasses any purely human mental knowledge.

Application

  1. When there is something that surpasses, be aware that there is still something you need; there is still a distance to go.
  2. The word for knowledge (GNOSIS) refers to knowledge in the mind of the soul.
  3. To know something which surpasses GNOSIS means to have wisdom in the “heart, the spirit man.” (EPIGNOSIS).
  4. This surpassing knowledge is the spiritual IQ of the believer, how large the spirit man is and it’s based on the quantity and quality of the applied knowledge in the heart.
  5. The greater the spiritual IQ, the greater the knowledge of the love of Christ.
  6. There is a surpassing experience available to every person – to have a real, object, experiential the greater the knowledge of the love of Christ.

“that ye might be filled”

“Filled” is the aorist active subjunctive of PLERMO, which has several related meanings in the Greek New Testament.

  1. “To fill up a deficiency” – The deficiency is in the believer’s soul, namely a lack of spiritual IQ. The “fullness of God” is not there, so it must be provided.
  2.  “To fully possess” – Word truth in the spirit is knowledge that is fully possessed by the human spirit. Since Jesus Christ is the Word, this is a reference to “Christ at home in your hearts by faith.” Eph. 3:17

Colossians 1:27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.  Paul also prayed in Eph.1:17-19 that the :God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your [a]understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the power of His mighty power.

Be Filled to the Measure of All the Full Fullness of God.

3. “To fully influence” – Edification fully influences the life of a believer.

4. “To fill with a certain quality” – The believer’s spiritual quality, his spiritual IQ and level of edification, are available to be used to provide a quality life. A quality life is characterized by: Faith-

Rest, Joy, Peace, a relaxed mental attitude, occupation with/in Christ, divine production of gold, silver, precious stones.

1 Cor. 3:11-13 For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw— each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done.

Symbols:

 

  • Gold- kingship, glory -Rev. 14:4; SS 5:11; Dan. 3:1; Matt. 2:11; Acts 17:29; Rev. 4:4; 9:7, 18:9-12 ,Mal. 3:3; Hag. 2:8.
  • Silver -Redemption-Lev. 5:15; Ps. 68:13;1Pet. 1:18- 20;

Matt. 27:3-9

  • Precious stones-Brilliant- In New Jerusalem, the Bride of Christ.Wood- human endeavor
  •  Hay-little worth
  • Straw- useless, worthless

The verb “filled” is in the subjunctive mood. This means that edification is not a given, it is potential. The tragedy here is that there are those who fade out rapidly.  

Example: Matt. 13;18, Mark 4:1-20, Luke 8:4-15-the parable of the sower, in which:

 

  1. The unbeliever by the wayside rejects the gospel.

 

  1. The person on rock soil has knowledge pushed out by suffering.

 

  1. Thorns refer to slavery to the details of life, resulting in no edification.

 

  1. But knowledge (GNOSIS) plus good soil.

(FAITH) produce wisdom (EPIGNOSIS), and the production of divine good.

“with all the fulness of God” – the complete package – length, breadth, depth, height. As mentioned in the previous lesson this means:

  • Width- language used in shadowing forth the greatness, extent, and number of the blessings received from Christ,Length – of number and quantity, equivalent to numerous, large: ἀγέλη, Mark 5:11; abundant
  • Depth- thickness- fathomless-broad place- same word as used in Ps. 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
  • Height- tank-your position in Christ.

FULLNESS. (Eph. 3:19) pleroma (play-row-mah); Strong’s #4138: Full number, full complement, full measure, copiousness, plenitude, that which has been completed. The word describes a ship with a full cargo and crew, and a town with no empty houses. Pleroma, strongly emphasizes fullness and completion.

Spiritual Leaders: Pray as Well as Teach (Eph. 3:14-21).

Spiritual leaders must pray for their people as well as teach them. Paul prayed that his fellow believers might know the strength of the Spirit’s reinforcement in the inner person, just as a storm-tossed ship on which he once sailed was strengthened inside by bracings and undergirded outside by cables (Acts 27:17).

Acts 27:17 When they had taken it on board, they used cables to undergird the ship; and fearing lest they should run aground on the [a]Syrtis Sands, they struck sail and so were driven.

Knowing that the strength of Christianity is not outward laws but inward character, Paul prayed that Christ might enter through the open door of faith, dwell in their hearts, and imprint His nature upon their minds, wills, and emotions. Christ brings His life—the very soil in which we take root and blossom, the ground in which our lives are founded. Prayers/Declarations beget prayer, for the believer in whom Christ’s love is bringing the fullness of God will learn to ask and expect great things from Him because everything has already been given us that pertain to life and godliness.

2 Peter 1:3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,

 

 

We have not been called, chosen, redeemed and accepted because of our own merit – but by His glory, His goodness, His virtue and His grace and we are called to share in His glory and be clothed in His righteousness as children of God and joint-heirs with Christ.

Let us never forget that our heavenly position and privileges are ours in Christ Jesus Who, by His divine power has given us everything that is needed for life and godliness. And let us never forget that all that we are and all that we have is because of His glory, His goodness and His grace – Who laid aside His glory so that He could call us out of darkness into His marvelous light.

Again, knowledge (EPIGNOSIS)means to have wisdom in the “heart, the spirit man.” EPIGNOSIS (is a Greek word meaning precise and correct knowledge. It is used in the New Testament twenty times: fifteen times by the Apostle Paul, one time in Hebrews and four times by the Apostle Peter. 

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: (Eph. 1:17 KJV).

Epignosis produces practical results in our knowledge of God. For example, we may have an understanding (gnosis) of healing, but still be sick in our body. When you have epignosis of healing, you get healed! Get epignosis of the Father.

 

MEDITATE

What happens when epignosis is received? Declare that “I am growing in the epignosis of God, and coming into the fullness of the knowledge of my rights, privileges, and blessings in Christ”.

APPLY THE WORD

Epignosis is your key to unlock the treasures of grace in your life. Go for it. It is in the Scriptures, if you will allow the Spirit to give it to you!

PRAY/DECLARE- this knowledge with the Word of God

We will continue with Lesson 4 next week.  The blessings of the Lord are upon you whether by blood, adoption/sonship or assignment. The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. Prov. 10:22

EPHESIANS LESSON 4 (CHAPTER 3) 10/05/19

LESSON 4- Ephesians

Chapter 3

 The Mystery- Revelation

 

 Our Inheritance in Christ Cont.’

 

Chapter 3:1-21

 

Eph. 3:7 of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power.

3:7 This Gospel defines my ministry; I am supercharged by the gift of His grace! Mirror Translation

 

 

Eph. 3:7 “a minister” – (diakonos), “minister; server.The word (diakonos) is transliterated in the English into “server”. Paul became one who “ministers”, and the type and extent of his ministry is explained in the succeeding verses, in words such as “to make all men see”. Paul lived and worked in the “service” of Christ. 5-fold ministers are leaders/servers.

There is no merit involved in Paul’s becoming a minister. He has done nothing to earn or deserve any special treatment from the Lord. In fact, he states that he was the “chief of sinners”. If a minister is successful, it is because of who and what God is, not who and what he is in the sense realm but according to the Spirit.

 

Related Scripture:

 

1 Tim. 1:11-16″According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust. “And I thank Christ Jesus, our Lord, who has enabled me, in that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry. “Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious; but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. “And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. “Nevertheless, for this cause, I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all long-suffering, for a pattern to them who should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.”

 

 The word “minister” is used several ways in Scripture.

 

* Those in authority in a national entity are ministers, such as judges. Romans 13:4.

* Every believer is a minister: 2 Cor. 3:6; 4:1; 6:4

* The ministry gifts given in Eph. 4:11 are ministers: Eph. 6:21; Col. 1:23; 4:7

 I teach that everyone has a ministry gift but not necessarily a leader, part of the 5-fold ministry as described in Ephesians 4:11-16.

 

 

Everyone a Minister

 

YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED before the foundations of the world. Eph. 1:4

 

YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN by God Himself.

 

YOU HAVE BEEN EQUIPPED with everything necessary for life and godliness. 2 Pet. 1-2

 

YOU HAVE BEEN SET IN EXACTLY THE RIGHT PLACE, with just the right intellect, parents, siblings, and personality.

 

YOUR MINISTRY, YOUR GIFTS, YOUR TALENTS AND YOUR PLACE ARE ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE TO YOU, and no one else can fill your place. If you do not do it, then there is specific Kingdom work that will be left undone.

 

How are we to minister?

 

With:   Openness, vulnerability – walk in the light

 

Concern and compassion – we must want to know what is going on in the lives of others and show it! If folks aren’t convinced that we really want to know and that we care enough to listen and participate, they won’t share. How often has someone asked you how you were doing and then walked off before even hearing your response? You knew all they wanted to hear was, “fine”.

 

Acceptance – Ephesians 1:6 as God accepts us. This is the next step, whatever people say to us, we must accept them. We don’t like their stuff necessarily, but we accept them because we ALL have stuff!

 

Care, kindness, tender-heartedness actively shown.

 

Take time to listen – patience. People have been known to spend $5 a minute just for someone to listen to them without talking. One of the best gifts you can ever give to someone is to listen, truly tuning into body language, tone of voice, things said and un-said. This takes true humility and servanthood because what we have to say takes a back seat to what the other is saying. Often asking meaningful, thought-provoking questions is necessary as well.

 

Ephesians 4:15-16 – speak the truth in love – once the right to be heard is earned – like mentioned above, then, and only then, can you do this. Then we can all grow up in Christ – the Anointed One and His anointing. Then the whole body will supply each other what it needs and it will be fit together. Proper working of the body causes growth. We are all then built up in love.

 

 

BENEFITS OF BODY/TEAM MINISTRY

 

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 by having 1-2 close people in your life – who work with you:

 

More work is done.

 

When one falls, stumbles or is just down the others can pick them up. Can keep each other warm – physically, emotionally, spiritually, etc. (can be a matter of survival)

 

They help each other in the battle against the enemy (satan and powers of darkness) (one can set a thousand to flight, two can set to thousand – exponential). Sometimes one doesn’t realize that they are under attack and the other can help with that.

 

 

ONE CAN CHASE A THOUSAND, BUT TWO, IN UNITY (AGREEMENT), CAN DO SO MUCH MORE! 

 

You may be mighty in Prayer alone, but you can be mightier with someone joining you. The Bible says that “…one will put one thousand to flight but two will put ten thousand to flight.” [Leviticus 26:8; Deuteronomy 32:30].

 

There is strength and they are not quickly torn apart.

 

 

Related Scripture:

 

James 5:16 confess your sins to each other and pray for each other and Ephesians 4:32 and Colossians 3:13 Forgive each other – John 21 Jesus tells the disciples that they have the authority to forgive sins – not like God does, but, rather, proclaiming to each other the forgiveness that is already there. We need to hear that often.

 

 

 Why minister to the body?

 

(v.12) for upbuilding, edifying

(v. 13) for unified faith and knowledge

(v. 13)  for the corporate personality of Christ-likeness

(v. 14) to be no longer babes

(3:10) for the glory of God’s wisdom

 

 

We minister by speaking the truth in love (Eph. 4: 15) [see also 2 Pet. 3:17-18].

 

 

How do we minister? (from Eph. 4:16):

 

1. By relying on Christ as the source of growth (“from whom…”)

 

Christ gave gifts and grace to all (Eph. 4:7)

Christ gave equippers to the church (Eph. 4:11)

Christ is the model and aim (Eph. 4:13) to guide and as inspiration

“I will build my church” (Matt. 16:18)

The Lord produces love (1 Thess. 3:12; Gal. 5:22)

Christ wins obedience through word and deed (Rom. 15:18)

 

 

2. “The whole body . . . makes the growth of the body”

 

The question seen from Eph. 4:12 is: 

 

Do equippers minister or do the saints minister? BOTH Saints (note the change in preposition, the “whole body,” “each single part” (Eph. 4: 16d)

 

Do you feel responsible to speak the truth in love?

 

 

3. The body makes growth by connectedness (“joined and knit together through every joint for supply”)

 

5- fold ministries are the joints of the Body. Joint: may be every place of connection (from part to part) not every bone connection (elbow, shoulder, etc.) as we know it.

 

Point: growth happens through points of contact. Corporate building happens through connectedness.

 

 

The supply is Truth & Love

 

 

 

 

4. “The working in measure of each individual part”   (Eph. 4:16d)

 

Not just all; but every individual

in measure (we do not have the same measure)

(see also Romans 12:3 as God measured a measure of faith).

 

 

5. Upbuilding /Edifying of itself (through/from Christ) but we do make a difference (Eph. 4:16f)

 

 

6. Done in love (Eph. 4:16g) Nothing else works.

 

1 Cor. 8:1 – love builds up -2 Cor. 12:19 – we speak…and all, beloved, for your upbuilding

 

 

So, the exhortation is this: speak the truth to one another in love, relying on Christ as the source, for he makes the whole body grow. 

 

Do more than just pray…speak to one another, and encourage one another. 

 

My husband, David, often reminds me: “He and I are not in the ministry, but the ministry flows out of us.

 

 

 

We will continue with Lesson 4 next week.

FS World Event Africa: Millions of People Coming To Jesus!

Hello Everyone:

As I watched this video, I kept thinking about Moses leading the people out of Egypt. Toward the middle of the video, they show different cities and list the attendance at each event. WOW!

I am not sure who the Evangelist is, but he was on fire. It is amazing to see the “sea” of humanity in these photos coming to receive Yahshua/Jesus. We need to expand our tent pegs to understand what Yahweh God is doing there and pray He brings it here. Selah!

9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11

Blessings, bon

Millions of Muslims turn to Jesus / Yeshua in just one night. You wont believe this is possible

Published on Jan 21, 2015
From city to city in Africa they came, just to listen to this man of G-D.
The decision cards for Christ was over 15.000.000 all up, from all the revival crusades put together.
You won’t believe what you see, so many people.
It looked like a sea of people.
If this keeps up, Africa will no longer be considered a Muslim nation.

WHAT IS A MATTAH? – ANITA HESTER

Hello Firestorm:

 

Recently we experienced a supernatural event in one of our prayer rooms. Three of us heard and felt the vibrations of many Mattah’s being used in our worship warfare and shofars blowing. Though we were scattered in different states (WV, TN, TX) we each heard and felt the vibrations and sounds at the same time. I am still in awe at what happened.

 

In trying to explain what we heard it is important to understand what Mattah’s are and why they are such an incredible worship/warfare tool.  I have searched through several articles and would like to share some of  them with you.  The following is one of those articles which seeks to explain and reveal the importance of the Mattah in our worship and prayers today.

 

 

WHAT IS A MATTAH?

Anita Hester

 

Mattah’ (mah TAH’)- a branch (as extending) a rod, whether for chastising, ruling (a scepter), throwing (a lance), or walking (a staff), the primary root is Natah- to stretch or spread out, to bow down or deliver.

 

HISTORY

 

Following the law of first mention we can look to Moses. He was the first to call the Lord Jehovah Nissi. He lifted up his rod and as long as it was lifted they were winning the battle. When his arms were tired Aaron and Hur came alongside him and lifted his arms.

 

When the battle ended they had won, Moses built an altar and called it the Lord God My Banner. This is the first mention of banner in the Word.

 

Therefore the original standard was a rod without cloth on top. (Exodus 17:15)

 

The Lord instructed Moses to have the tribes set up their tent by divisions, each man in his own camp, under his own standard. (Numbers 1:52)

 

So each tribe created their standards by taking a staff and carving the name of the tribe, the tribal symbol, and the names of the tribal leaders.

 

Next a piece of cloth was tied to the top that was the tribal color. This was the first flag. When a tribe would go into battle they would go out with their standard before them and when the wind blew the archers could shoot their arrow more accurately.

 

When a Mattah, banner, or flag is lifted up the meaning is expressed by the colors, symbols, and design. The authority of that group or person is exhibited and sets for the standard.

 

Scriptural Reference

 

A mattah can be used in worship and in warfare. I believe that the Lord is taking us to a new level were the line between worship and intercession will no longer be seen.

 

One of the Hebrew words for intercession is paga.

 

Paga means- to encounter, make intercession, strike, touch (as a boundary).

 

Worship and Warfare- Isaiah 30:32

 

Striking Isaiah 11:4, Numbers 20:11

 

Raised up in Battle- Exodus 17:8-15

 

Leaned on in Worship- Hebrews 11:21

 

A sign- Exodus 4:17, Numbers 17, 20:11, Judges 6:21

 

Healing-  2 Kings 4:29

 

Judge and Rule- Revelation 12:5

 

How to use a Mattah’?

 

In worship a Mattah’ can be used to dance with and as a percussion instrument.

 

You can twirl and lift it up.

 

You can also strike the ground in different rhythms and create new sounds.

 

In intercession you can lift it up as in battle or strike the ground. The Lord will strike the ground with the rod of His Mouth. (Isaiah 11:4)

 

I believe that when you strike the ground you proclaim the word that the Mattah’ represents.

 

The Lord has impressed me to carve the scripture at the bottom of each staff so that when you strike the ground you are proclaiming His Word.

 

Strongholds are broken in the spirit through the prophetic authority released as you strike the ground. You are taking the land that the Lord has promised us and making declarations over the nations.

 

I know that we, the Bride of Christ, have only begun to understand the depths of the spirit to which our Passionate Bridegroom desires to take us.

IN DEFENSE OF GENERAL LEE – EDWARD C. SMITH

Hello Firestorm:

 

My heart and spirit are grieving as I watch hate and anger sweep across our Nation and people tear down historical monuments of our history. I repent Father for all this and the sins of this Nation and I ask for Your forgiveness, mercy & healing over our land (people).

I rebuke the lies and twisted communications being released by the enemy and I call for truth and light to shine upon America, in the midst of these storms of bitterness and violence. In the Name of Yahshua/Jesus I pray and thank You Father.

I received the following article about General Robert R. Lee and I pray it opens eyes and hearts all across this Nation where people will to take a deeper look at our history and the people who died to bring forth the very freedoms we have today.

When we look back in history through our 21st century hindsight, our leaders may not appear to be perfect, maybe they could have done a better job. But, I ask you, whom among us today is perfect?

I wonder what people in the future will say about us as they look back at what is happening in our Nation today? Are the beliefs we have concerning what happened in our “past” now inciting a war against each other today, to repeat history? Will those leaders who try to rise up and bring us together, be remembered with a monument today and then be looked upon by the future generation with hate and anger? There is something deeper happening here.

They say history repeats itself:

History has shown that the average age of the great civilizations is around two hundred years (200). Countries like Great Britain exceed the average, while other countries like the United States are just now reaching the average age.

Each of the great civilizations in the world passed through a series of stages from their birth to their decline to their death. Historians have listed these in ten stages.

The first stage moves from bondage to spiritual faith.
The second from spiritual faith to great courage.
The third stage moves from great courage to liberty.
The fourth stage moves from liberty to abundance.
The fifth stage moves from abundance to selfishness.
The sixth stage moves from selfishness to complacency.
The seventh stage moves from complacency to apathy.
The eighth stage moves from apathy to moral decay.
The ninth stage moves from moral decay to dependence.
And the tenth and last stage moves from dependence to bondage.

These are the ten stages through which the great civilizations have gone. Notice the progression from bondage to liberty back to bondage. The first generation throws off the shackles of bondage only to have a later generation through apathy and indifference allow itself to once again be enslaved.

This is the direction this and every other country is headed. The book of Judges shows that the nation of Israel passed through these same stages. And this country will do the same unless revival and reformation break out and reverse the inexorable decline of this nation.

In Defense of General Lee

Robert Edward Lee was an American general known for commanding the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia in the American Civil War from 1862 until his surrender in 1865. Wikipedia

Born: January 19, 1807, Stratford Hall, VA
Died: October 12, 1870, Lexington, Virginia, VA

Buried: October 15, 1870, Lee Chapel, Lexington, Virginia, VA
Spouse: Mary Anna Custis Lee (m. 1831–1870)
Children: George Washington Custis Lee, MORE

Quotes

Duty then is the sublimest word in the English language. You should do your duty in all things. You can never do more, you should never wish to do less.

It is well that war is so terrible – otherwise we would grow too fond of it.

In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength.

Let me begin on a personal note. I am a 56-year-old, third-generation, African American Washingtonian who is a graduate of the D.C. public schools and who happens also to be a great admirer of Robert E. Lee’s.

Today, Lee, who surrendered his troops to Gen. Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House 134 years ago, is under attack by people — black and white — who have incorrectly characterized him as a traitorous, slaveholding racist. He was recently besieged in Richmond by those opposed to having his portrait displayed prominently in a new park.

My first visit to Lee’s former home, now Arlington National Cemetery, came when I was 12 years old, and it had a profound and lasting effect on me. Since then I have visited the cemetery hundreds of times searching for grave sites and conducting study tours for the Smithsonian Institution and various other groups interested in learning more about Lee and his family as well as many others buried at Arlington.

Lee’s life story is in some ways the story of early America. He was born in 1807 to a loving mother, whom he adored. His relationship with his father, Henry “Light Horse Harry” Lee, (who was George Washington’s chief of staff during the Revolutionary War) was strained at best. Thus, as he matured in years, Lee adopted Washington (who had died in 1799) as a father figure and patterned his life after him. Two of Lee’s ancestors signed the Declaration of Independence, and his wife, Mary Custis, was George Washington’s foster great-granddaughter.

Lee was a top-of-the-class graduate of West Point, a Mexican War hero and superintendent of West Point. I can think of no family for which the Union meant as much as it did for his.

But it is important to remember that the 13 colonies that became 13 states reserved for themselves a tremendous amount of political autonomy. In pre-Civil War America, most citizens’ first loyalty went to their state and the local community in which they lived. Referring to the United States of America in the singular is a purely post-Civil War phenomenon.

All this should help explain why Lee declined command of the Union forces — by Abraham Lincoln — after the firing on Fort Sumter. After much agonizing, he resigned his commission in the Union army and became a Confederate commander, fighting in defense of Virginia, which at the outbreak of the war possessed the largest population of free blacks (more than 60,000) of any Southern state.

Lee never owned a single slave, because he felt that slavery was morally reprehensible. He even opposed secession. (His slaveholding was confined to the period when he managed the estate of his late father-in-law, who had willed eventual freedom for all of his slaves.)

Regarding the institution, it’s useful to remember that slavery was not abolished in the nation’s capital until April 1862, when the country was in the second year of the war. The final draft of the Emancipation Proclamation was not written until September 1862, to take effect the following Jan. 1, and it was intended to apply only to those slave states that had left the Union.

Lincoln’s preeminent ally, Frederick Douglass, was deeply disturbed by these limitations but determined that it was necessary to suppress his disappointment and “take what we can get now and go for the rest later.” The “rest” came after the war.

Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the few civil rights leaders who clearly understood that the era of the 1960s was a distant echo of the 1860s, and thus he read deeply into Civil War literature. He came to admire and respect Lee, and to this day, no member of his family, former associate or fellow activist that I know of has protested the fact that in Virginia Dr. King’s birthday — a federal holiday — is officially celebrated as “Robert E. Lee-Stonewall Jackson-Martin Luther King Day.”

Lee is memorialized with a statue in the U.S. Capitol and in stained glass in the Washington Cathedral.

It is indeed ironic that he has long been embraced by the city he fought against and yet has now encountered some degree of rejection in the city he fought for.

In any event, his most fitting memorial is in Lexington, Va.: a living institution where he spent his final five years. There the much-esteemed general metamorphosed into a teacher, becoming the president of small, debt-ridden Washington College, which now stands as the well-endowed Washington and Lee University.

It was in Lexington that he made a most poignant remark a few months before his death. “Before and during the War Between the States I was a Virginian,” he said. “After the war I became an American.”

I have been teaching college students for 30 years, and learned early in my career that the twin maladies of ignorance and misinformation are not incurable diseases.

The antidote for them is simply to make a lifelong commitment to reading widely and deeply. I recommend it for anyone who would make judgment on figures from the past, including Robert E. Lee.

A SERMON & A SONG FOR GOOD FRIDAY

Sermon for Good Friday

Text: John 19:28-30

Jesus knew that by now everything had been completed; and in order to make the scripture come true, he said, “I am thirsty.” A bowl was there, full of cheap wine; so a sponge was soaked in the wine, put on a stalk of hyssop, and lifted up to his lips. Jesus drank the wine and said, “It is finished!”

**************************************************************

Everything is complete!

It was three o’clock. Jesus called for water. He could hardly speak. A soldier fixed a sponge on a spear and held it up to his lips. It was terribly bitter but it was enough. He strained to raise his head and look up to heaven. “It is finished,” he cried and then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

At the time, the moment was filled with too much emotion for those words to sink in and to ponder what they meant. But later as the early Christians read John’s Gospel and heard again those words, it dawned on them just how powerful these dying words of Jesus were. John wrote his Gospel in Greek, and those last words of Jesus are just one word in Greek – tetelestai (pronounced te-tel-es-sty).

The expression “It is finished” or tetelestai was well known to them. It was a part of everyday language.

When a servant had completed a difficult job that his master had given him to do, he would say to the master – tetelestai – “I have overcome all the difficulties; I have done the job to the best of my ability. It is finished”.

When the Jewish people went to the temple with their sacrifice, the High Priest would examine what was brought. Most likely, he didn’t speak Greek but he would use the Hebrew equivalent of tetelestai – meaning, “Your offering is accepted; it is perfect”.

When the merchant at the market place made a sale and the money was handed over, he would say, “tetelestai – the deal is finished, complete. The price has been paid in full. I am satisfied”.

When an artist had finished a painting or a sculpture he would stand back and say, tetelestai – it is finished; there is nothing more that can be done to make this piece of art any better. This painting is complete.

When a boy recited to his father a difficult passage he had learnt from the Scriptures or a girl showed her mother the bread she had baked for the family, they would say tetelestai and the parents responded with, “Well done, my child, I am very proud of you.”

When Jesus spoke those final words he wasn’t just saying, “This is the end of me” as if there was nothing else to do but to give in to his enemies and die. His last words weren’t a final surrender to the power of Satan as if to say, “You have won. I’m done for”. These words don’t tell us that Jesus was dead now and that’s all there is to it. He is finished and so is everything that he stood for and promised during his earthly life.

All those who heard the word tetelestai – the servants, those who offered sacrifices at the temple, the buyers and sellers at the market place, the artists and parents and children understood that Jesus is saying that his job of saving the world has been completed.

He has finished the task and
nothing can be added to what has been done.

Jesus has paid the price in full – he has cancelled all debt.

His sacrifice has been a perfect one, acceptable to the heavenly Father who, looking down on his Son hanging lifelessly from the cross, said, “Well done, this is my dear Son with whom I am well pleased”.

Tetelestai – it is finished. Everything is complete!

What is it that is finished when Jesus says, “It is finished”?

Reconciliation is finished. The word ‘reconciliation’ has been used a lot in connection with the relationship between the aboriginal people of our country and the rest of the community. The terrible things that happened in the past have caused a rift between black and white people. Efforts have been made to heal the differences, to close the gap caused by past actions, to restore friendship, to be reconciled.

A terrible gap has come between God and all humanity caused by sin and evil. Our offences, our disobedience, the hurt we have caused God and others have destroyed our relationship with God. Recall a time when you have done something that has hurt someone else and because of that your friendship with that person has been damaged, a gap has come between you, and you felt uneasy when you met that person, in fact you may have avoided that person. All of that doesn’t change until you put aside your differences and friendship is restored.

In the movie Grand Canyon, a tow truck driver is threatened by five troublemakers as he attempts to rescue a terrified motorist. He says, “Man, the world ain’t supposed to work like this. Maybe you don’t know that, but this ain’t the way it’s supposed to be. I’m supposed to be able to do my job without askin’ if I can. And that dude is supposed to able to wait with his car without you rippin’ him off. Everything’s supposed to be different than what it is here.”

And he’s right. Everything’s supposed to be different. God created a perfect beautiful world and he made people to live in harmony and peace with one another. But look what’s happened. We all know what an effect our poorly chosen words and lack of consideration have on our relationship with family members and friends. Greed and selfishness destroy friendship and separate people and nations. That tow truck driver hit the nail on the head when he said – “Man, the world ain’t supposed to work like this”.

Sin has a devastating effect on our relationship with God. Sin separates us from God and if we want to have any hope of going to heaven to be with God, then someone had to deal with sin and restore our relationship with God. So God sent his Son into the world for this very purpose.

Jesus died on the cross to get rid of the power of sin to condemn us. His death bridged the deep gulf between God and us. “Salvation is finished”, Jesus cried. The restoration of the friendship between God and humanity has been finished. The task for which God’s Son came to earth has been completed.

He has won forgiveness for all people.

Nothing else needs to be done.

Salvation is complete. “It is finished”.

That’s why we call today “Good Friday”. It certainly wasn’t a good day for Jesus. He endured pain, soul-wrenching agony, hanging by the nails in his hands for hours, death on a rough wooden cross, for our sakes. We call today “Good Friday” because the cross is proof of the powerful love that God has for each of us. No one, not even God, would do something like that unless he truly loved us. Here we see a love that was prepared to endure the ultimate in order to rescue us.

We have known love to do some very powerful and strange things. A teenager Arthur Hinkley lifted a farm tractor with his bare hands. He wasn’t a weight lifter, but his best friend, eighteen-year-old Lloyd, was pinned under a tractor. Arthur heard Lloyd screaming for help and Arthur somehow lifted the tractor enough for Lloyd to wriggle out. His love for his best friend somehow enabled him to do what would normally be impossible.

There is the story of a priest who offered his life in place of a teenage boy in Nazi Germany. His offer was accepted and the priest died to save the boy’s life.

And then there was the young soldier who had been condemned to death by Oliver Cromwell. He was to be shot at the ringing of the curfew bell. His fiancée climbed the bell tower and tied herself to the clapper of the giant bell so that it would not ring. When the bell did not ring, soldiers went to investigate and found the girl battered and bleeding from being bashed against the sides of the bell. Cromwell was so impressed by her love for the young man that he was pardoned.

Because of love, people do extraordinary things for others. They give us a glimpse, a small glimpse, at the kind of love that God has for us. God the Father sent his dearly loved Son into dangerous territory. He allowed his Son to be treated cruelly. He stood by and watched his innocent Son be nailed to a cross and to hang there in agony. He could have rescued him and cursed those who were treating him so brutally and maliciously. He allowed his Son to carry the sin of all humanity and so become repulsive even to his own Father. I don’t think we can fully appreciate what it meant for the Father to abandon the Son and let him died at the hands of evil people. When Jesus cried out, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” we sense something of the terror of bearing the weight of the sin of all humanity.

God did all this for us. He did all this because of his love for us.

Paul writes, “God has shown us how much he loves us—it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us! … We were God’s enemies, but he made us his friends through the death of his Son.” (Romans 5:8,10). That’s how much God loves us – Jesus died for us even though we don’t deserve it. His death has made us God’s friends.

Jesus’ announcement, “It is finished” is clear and simple. Jesus has completed his task. The reason why he came as a human has been fulfilled. He came so that you and I can have forgiveness and salvation. He came to give us the victory. He came to ensure that we would enter his kingdom and live forever.

Today we’re going to do an “Altar Call”. You don’t have to get up; you don’t have to raise a hand or say a word. All I want you to do is close your eyes. For a short while, I want you to think about what Jesus has done for you through his death on the cross. Visualise in your mind the suffering Saviour. Think about the love that God has for you, and thank him. Ask God to wrap you tightly in his love – forgiving you, watching over you, guiding you. If you feel that Jesus and his love for you are not real for a large part of your life, ask for his help.

We pray:
Loving God,
what you have done for us in Jesus’ death on the cross is far more than we deserve. His death has made us friends with you again. His death has given us forgiveness and the hope of life forever. Everything is complete. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Amen.

WORSHIPING WARRIORS & DANCING MEN

Worshiping Warriors & Dancing Men

FS Conference 2014

Hello Firestorm:

At the 2014 Firestorm Conference we had a time!! There are so many wonderful things we experienced it is hard for me to know where to start.  However, today I received a note from Bridget with a video from U-tube concerning our Marines, which has given me a hint of where to begin.  The video is not long but, well worth your time to watch. (Link no longer available)

For about 3 years, I have felt the pull of the Lord to pray for His sons, the men to rise up and come forth and take their place. At the conference, Pastor Bob came in calling the men to come forth to dance and break free from all that had them bound and worship the Lord.

You had to be there to feel the Presence of the Lord, the electricity the freedom and joy in the air when the men danced, but then again, maybe you can sense some of that from the pictures I am enclosing below. The men came forth and danced.

In the midst of all the things happening in the world today, the evil being released and so many challenging our faith and right to worship and say the Name Jesus (Yahshua), it is nice to see God (Jehovah) still has some Worshiping Warriors and Dancing Men. Maybe I should just say, God still has many who have not bowed their knees to Baal.

Below is the video, the pictures of the conference follow and I dare not forget to mention, God really blessed all of us ladies too, when we saw the men dance.

It was a joyous time for all and I for one, felt like we were a bunch of God’s children dancing and singing and shouting for joy before Him. I wonder if that is what Matthew 18:3 is talking about? 

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

And for any scoffers Matthew 19:14
 

But Jesus said , Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Dorian Peace Be Still – Dorian 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 – Gone

Hallelu-Yah!!!!!

From work today, I received the report of Dorian going down from a Category 4 to a Category 3 and then, in the afternoon, I heard Dorian went down to a Category 2, with winds of 145 to 110. However, I am now hearing the wind speed is fluctuating on the inside from 74 to 90 mph. No longer stationary Dorian is moving NW at 6 mph. The Weather man said, no surprises here, expect this storm to be liken to Matthew with 3-4 feet flooding heading onto our coastline. Maybe, Maybe Not!!!!

Another one said, Dorian is not done, just beginning! Well, maybe Yahweh is not done either. In the Name of Yahshua, Dorian you bow, peace be still and go out away from our Nation’s east coast and take your flood waters with you. \o/ Hallelu-Yah, I thank You Father – No storm is more powerful than You. You ARE I AM! Pray Saints, Shake the Gates of Heaven.

Hmmm, traveling at Six miles per hour. The number 6 caught my eye. Sometimes people think I get a little overboard spiritually. Well, I like to walk on water and I love looking prophetically at what Yahweh does. He always has hidden messages, for those who like deep sea (seeing) diving (discerning).

With that said. The number 6 is the number of “man.” “So God created man in His own image…Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So, the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” Genesis 1:27,31

According to Bible scholars, just as the number 7 typically signifies completion or perfection, especially of God, the number 6 is one number shy of seven, specifically referring to the imperfection of man and the sin and weakness he has.

Yes, we are weak, but not alone. Yahweh is with us. It is not by our strength Dorian will be taken down, but by the Power, Majesty and Uniqueness of Yahweh. It is the connection, the relationship between man and God, which looses the power on the Earth.

Adam broke the connection between God and man allowing sin to enter the earth in the garden by eating the fruit and his weakness is why the number 6 is called the “number of man.” However, Yahweh had a plan to restore our relationship.

Through His restorative power, His plan paralleled man’s creation on the sixth day and subsequent fall into sin with – Jesus’ death on the cross on the sixth day of Passover. It was all about getting us back to Him. Just as man was created in six days, Jesus restored the connection between heaven and man on the sixth day of Passover making a way for us to find salvation through His redeeming blood.

I can sense a coming together again of those in Christ, a uniting. A prodigal people coming back to Yahweh. A new bond, a relationship of trust enabling us to come together to pray, declare and proclaim the power and protection of Yahweh over this Nation. We have a part to play. Never has there been a time more needed for Christians to shout out their faith in Yahweh and choose who we will serve, as we begin to understand what it means to: “co-labor with Christ.” I Corinthians 3:8-10

Joshua probably said it best. “As for me and my family, we will serve the LORD (Yahweh) Joshua 24:15.

We can make a difference in this Nation. We are called to go forth. We are sent to infiltrate every single part of our culture; medicine, economics, science, education, teaching, music, art, politics, governments, policemen, firemen, painters, builders, religion and more. We are to bring forth morality, goodness, civility, light and life, but we cannot do it without the supernatural power of Jesus and releasing His logos & rhema words, through the prophetic ministry.

I know we don’t need to get caught up in over analyzing every single number in the Bible, but at the least, shouldn’t we be aware of the symbolic meanings of numbers and the words in it, especially in this situation. Look how the number 6 shines a spotlight on man’s weakness, but at the same time, highlights Yahweh’s power to restore what once was lost. Is the United States too far gone?

Some may think the United States is on its way out, the fires, floods, earthquakes, the decline of morality, family and Reverence of Yahweh, but maybe through Dorian, Yahweh is letting us see, He has not left us or forsaken us and it is not over till He says it is over.

Remember John Paul Jones famous saying in 1779? It is the spirit of America was born with. His ships engaged in a fight with the British in the American Revolution. All looked lost, but this man rose up in the midst of the fire and battle and when they asked him if he was ready to surrender, he said, “I have not yet begun to fight. Talk about God joining with man in a battle! Take a look at our history.

http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/johnpauljones.htm

That’s where I am in this battle with Dorian. I may have jumped out of the boat in pondering on the number 6 and you may not agree with me, but we can agree the Grace (Power) of Yahweh can be compared to none and No storm or battle is stronger than He is. Hallelu-Yah!

The test between Dorian and Yahweh is not a hard one, but the test for us to take our place on the wall is what I believe is important to Yahweh. What we are learning and what we are doing, in the midst of the storms of sin/sex/anger/hate and murder invading our nation is what Yahweh is focusing on. Will we remain silent with a Que Sera, Sera; whatever will be will be, mindsets of, I can’t do anything, I’m not worthy, or will we rise up, stand strong and go with Yahweh to take back our nation?

In Ezekiel 22:30…..Yahweh says:

“I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn’t have to destroy the land, but I found no one.

Dorian is an entity sent to physically kill and destroy everything on the east coast of the US. For all of us to be silent, would be catastrophic. We must join together with Yahweh to defeat this storm, shut the door for others who are waiting in line to plummet the US and take our place on the WALL. It is time for the “Sleeping Giant to Wake Up.” Wake up Church, your time is NOW!

What say you?

Deb Fry – HalleluYAH!!And sister, its down to a 2 since you sent this…..and may not hit anywhere on the coast.. Child of the Sea, go out to sea and your winds die out in Jesus mighty name!!

Bonnie Nelson – Thank You Father for all You have done already by tempering Dorian by Your Hand.  I join with my sisters in saying, enough, your time is over Dorian to torment the US east coast, in the Name of Yahshua Father close the eye of Dorian and shut this storm down. You are no stranger to shutting down a storm, for you alone said, “Peace Be Still” and calmed the storm.  I speak the same words today, in the Name of Yahshua, “Peace Be Still Dorian.”  Thank You Father Yahweh.

Meri Ford – Dorian is a “child of the sea” and does not belong on the land…and we continue to tell you Dorian, by the power of the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get away from the land and out to sea. You are not made to be on land…but of the sea as you were created and named!!  

 

Mary Sue Davis –  Just saw this. DORIAN means “child of the sea”- Not “child of the land”! GO BACK to the SEA NOW!! Let’s declare together!

Bahamas Hold Dorian – Break Curses and Tentacles of Dorian

Hello Firestorm:

WOW!!! Did You Hear……Dorian has STOPPED. The weathermen say Dorian has “stalled” or is “STATIONARY.” Now a Category 4 and the wind speed is down from 155 to 140. Oh My Goodness. Saints, keep your prayers going up to the heavens.

I am hearing the song in my heart, “Hallelujah Jesus.”

Keeper of the Stars, Lord of Time and Space
I will live my life, lifting up your Name
Lover of my heart, God who came to save
Thank You for the Cross, and the Life You Gave

Wonderful, Powerful, Jesus is Your Name
Hallelujah Jesus, Hallelujah Jesus
Hallelujah Jesus
You Are the Everlasting God

Deb Fry posted on Facebook:

9/2 I was praying about Dorian, and in the midst of the storm, I saw another Storm of Glory!! A Whirlwind of FIRE rising up from the midst! Keep praying, Beloved of God! Keep raising your Hallelujahs in the midst of the storms!! And whatever storm you are facing, God is in your midst to bring DELIVERANCE!
(See more on her facebook page Deborah Waldron Fry)

The weathermen are saying Dorian could still hit land, but they don’t know for sure, because Dorian has STOPPED. So they are saying the only thing predictable about Dorian is – it is unpredictable. Others say Dorian may not hit our east coast, but go along the coastline till Thursday and just go out to sea!!!!!!! Hallelu-YAHWEH…..Wouldn’t it be like Him to do a miracle, which only He could do and astound the wise and thrill His People.

No more legal right to the United States, in the Name of Yahshua/Jesus, for Repentance and Humble hearts are crying out to Yahweh for His Mercy and speaking The Blood of Jesus over our Nation. The breaking of curses, spells and incantations is happening and the tentacles of Dorian are becoming anchors.

The cries and praises of the Saints for our King can be heard all over the land. Yahweh is fighting for us and though the world may not have eyes to see or ears to hear, you and I do!!!!! It is up to us to tell everyone, what is really happening and what our God, Yahweh is doing.

THE ONE TRUE, ALMIGHTY, RIGHTEOUS, MERCIFUL AND POWERFUL GOD, THE GOD OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Hello Firestorm:

This morning I read the reports where Dorian is hanging back over the Bahamas going down to a category 4 storm and winds from 185 to 155. The weatherman reporting from Florida said the main eye has broken down and a new eye has come forth, usually meaning the storm is breaking up.

He said the rain from the outer band of Dorian was coming down and blocking the view of the tall buildings and then, all of a sudden it stopped. I am looking for the signs, wonders and the miracles Yahweh is doing. The man continued and said, we don’t know what Dorian is doing, we are trying to figure it out, but we are just having to wait and see. This storm is unpredictable.

A prophetic look:

I see the Bahamas as an army standing in the gap for America, giving us some much needed time for prayer. Selah!!!

This morning when I woke up I had thoughts of those who are cursing and calling down this storm to destroy America. The witchcraft and spells being released over this nation, from within this nation, is something we have not had to deal with in the past.

Target this in your prayers. Break off the curses and the spells/incantations, which have been loosed to destroy and cause harm to this Nation through Dorian and the spirits of murders, anger and hate.

This is a new level of warfare for us to be aware of. Dorian has tentacles attaching itself to our east coast through the demonic realm. Stand with me to break them, by releasing into the atmosphere your voice. It is through the spoken rhema/living word and the Hand of Yahweh this storm shall continue to bow. In the Name of Yahshua. Thank You Father

Be Vigilant – Pray

Shirley Riser

Father I come and I stand in agreement with all these prayers in Jesus name. Father you showed me that you were placing your Holy angels along the eastern coast from the tip of Fla. up along the whole coast line they are guarding our coast and blowing Dorian back to the sea where he will spin himself out in Jesus name. I am standing on that and believe that will happen. Father I ask that you not remove your hand from this nation. Forgive us for turning our backs on you, forgive us for the spilling of innocent blood….Father come and awaken our hearts a new and a fresh and see all that you are doing…..O God do not let destruction touch our shores in Jesus name. May all who have eyes to see and ears to hear…may they see your hand in removing this evil move away from us and know it is you who has done this….in Jesus mighty name amen amen…..BLOW WIND OF GOD BLOW THIS CHILD OF THE SEA BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE SEA

Uhmm, aiming for the Carolinas is not acceptable , it is not to come this way. Praying it out to sea and dissipating completely.

Bonnie Nelson:

Thank You Father For Your Hand upon the east coast of our United States. No storm is more powerful than You Father. You created everything and nothing is above You. Dorian is a Category 5 and the weathermen talk about its power and ability, but I am talking about You and Your Power and Ability. Nothing compares to You. You are the Almighty, The Mighty One, The King of Kings, the GREAT I AM.

We cry out for You Father we do not glorify Dorian, we speak to her and rebuke her from the United States, in the Name of Yahshua. Thank You Father. I speak a great arising of the peoples of the United States to be free of scales keeping them from seeing You Father and understanding Your Great Love for them. I call forth their unveiling of their eyes of understanding to know this is the time for them to call upon Your Name – Yahweh.

They are calling Dorian a monster as I am writing – NO Monster can go through Your Fiery Hand of Protection Father for Your Hand encompasses the heavens and the galaxies. Glory to You Yahweh for You are turning this storm away from our Nation and its people. May You be blessed by the prayers and praises of Your People. Let the weathermen be amazed to understand the dismantling of Dorian. Hallelujah! We Love You Yahweh!!!!! There is none like YOU!!!!

Pray Saints of Yahweh – Pray

Together we are a Mighty Army

Dorian Begins To Bow To The Hands of Yahweh

Oh Hallelujah to Yahweh \o/ 

I can feel the ground under my feet shaking and I hear the sound of an army waking……

The headlines rocked my socks off this afternoon, as I turned on my computer and went looking to see the status of Dorian. Oh my goodness. Glory to Yahweh! Thank You Father!!!!!
 
Dorian is bowing to the Most High God, as He answers the prayers and travailings of His saints for His Hand of Protection over this nation. 
Do not surrender and settle for the turning away from just Florida.  Press on with your prayers and praises to Yahweh for this storm to turn totally away from all of our coastal cities and towns. 
Glory more Glory to our God Yahweh, who is showing His Mercy is new every morning. He is giving us more time and encouraging us to gather TOGETHER in our prayers and ready ourselves for the battle over who will be the LORD and GOD over this Nation of the United States of America.  United we shall be, for our battle demands we come together in unity and one accord.  
  
Here are the headlines I saw just as they were posted.

Hurricane Dorian’s path continues away from Florida in 2 p.m. Update from National Hurricane Center

 

Hurricane Dorian’s forecast path continued to veer away from Florida with the 2 p.m. Saturday advisory from the National Hurricane Center, although much of the state’s east coast remains within the danger zone.

The forecast track remained essentially unchanged from late-morning track, where the center steered clear of Florida and aimed at the Carolinas. The cone of uncertainty, showing possible paths for the storm’s center, excludes Broward and Miami-Dade counties but includes the rest of the Florida coast to the north.
