Encouraging Words 11/16/09-BCF Praise Report

"And we, who with unveiled faces ALL reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing GLORY, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."
II Corinthians 3:18

Greetings BCF Family & Friends!

Wonderful! marvelous! GOD LOVES US SOOOOO MUCH and has done an amazing thing in our lives! Yesterday's service at BCF was just as awesome and powerful as the renewal weekend services! We were all basking in the GLORY of His presence and realized that God has truly released a new passion and FIRE into our being! Everyone is blessed and excited and ready to do His Will for their lives and the Church!

The worship portion of our service was just wonderful, and you can go join in with us on our ustream, through the website. I encourage you to do so, and press in!! You WILL be filled!!

The Holy Spirit led me to speak on "Seeking the Face of God" and pursuing Jesus. I shared some insight into the Aaronic Blessing "The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make His FACE to shine upon you and be gracious unto you, and give you peace." Numbers 6:22-26 In this text, the Lord Himself TOLD Aaron and his sons what they were to SAY over the people of God- and in that saying, was SOOOOOO MUCH BLESSING you have to study it to get all that God gives us in it. You know, it seems that so often anymore, we quickly brush over things that God has told us without really getting the complete revelation and benefit from it. Too many things have become religious rituals and traditions that we gloss over and MISS what God has given us! The benefit of having the FACE OF GOD shining upon us, so that we may gaze into His Face- is that as we look upon His Face, the FULLNESS of His glory and goodness, His character and attributes are transferred, imparted unto US! You remember the phrase, 'you are what you eat'....well in this case- YOU ARE WHAT YOU LOOK UPON!! If we will gaze intently into the Lord's Face- we will become more and more like Him!

And the most awesome TRUTH is: Because of the Blood of Jesus, we have been given FULL ACCESS to God's Face! On the contrary, if all we ever look upon is the world, the television, worldly books and publications- we will begin to look like THEM! I am confident that every one of US want to look, act, BE like Jesus! Right?!! So let's be determined and continue to make every effort to continually look into His Face, to look upon Him in worship, His Word, prayer and soaking, and remember that we ARE BEING transformed into more and more of His image- from Glory toooo GLORY!!!

Thanks to everyone who has emailed, called, or Facebooked their testimonies and comments about the Fall Outpouring. We at BCF are humbly grateful for your love and accolades, but we give ALL of the praise to the Lord Jesus. We are looking forward to continuing to build the bonds of love and UNITY in the Church across the globe- and there are sooo many things coming for us in 2010- I can hardly wait to get there! Please continue to pray for us all, especially standing against little attacks of the enemy that try to create strife and upset, division, withdrawal from each other- and physical attacks against our health. Several folks have been ill since the renewal weekend. Please PRAY for Pastor Linda Harris and Janice Lacount. Pastor Linda is still in the hospital in Tennessee. She is doing better, but we must continue to intercede for them. Also, Garrey is somewhat better from his back injury, and is going to an orthopedic doctor today. He is still in a lot of pain, though, and unable to work.

I love you, WE LOVE YOU, and even better than all of that GOD LOVES YOU!!! Have a fantastic week, keep your eyes on the Lord Jesus and not your circumstances. BE THANKFUL and do everything you can to maintain the unity of the faith and peace with one another- so that God can be glorified through our lives!

"Now the Lord BLESS YOU and KEEP YOU, the Lord make His FACE to shine upon you and be gracious unto you, and give you His SHALOM- perfect balance, harmony, rest, all that you need for life and Godliness, Divine Health, with nothing missing and nothing broken in your life or ministry!"

In Jesus' MIGHTY name,
Apostle Dale
