JUDGES – Judges shows that God always punishes sin, and that he provides forgiveness for those who seek it. Judges tells of the period in Israel’s history after Joshua died, and when they were without a definitive centralized human government or leader.

God called twelve human judges to deliver the nation of Israel from their sin and captivity during these years.

2 SAMUEL – 2 Samuel documents the life and reign of David as Israel’s king. David committed numerous and despicable sins, yet God calls him a man after his own heart (1 Samuel 13:14). 2 Samuel shows that although we humans are full of sin, we can lead a godly life.
1 KINGS – 1 Kings tells the history of the kings of the united kingdom of Israel, and the history of the kings of the divided kingdom of Israel and Judah. Most of the kings were completely corrupt and led their kingdoms into sin. 1 Kings shows the importance of godly leadership, and that God expects those who lead to take care of his people.
2 KINGS – 2 Kings also tells of the kings of Israel, but it focuses more on the prophets sent to warn the kings and people of the impending judgment they faced if they refused to repent of their sins and return to God. 2 Kings reveals the importance of making God the ultimate leader in our lives. 2 Kings ends with the nations of Israel and Judah destroyed and led into captivity.

It poetically and graphically tells of how physical and emotional love should be handled in courtship and marriage.

ISAIAH – Isaiah is the first book of the prophets. Isaiah warns the people of Israel to turn from their sins or face the judgment of God.

Luke affirms the dual aspects of Jesus human and divine nature. Jesus teaches that he is the only way that anyone can go to Heaven—no one can earn their way into Heaven.
JOHN – John consists of material that mostly is unique from the other Gospels. John focuses on conclusively showing that Jesus is the Son of God, and the only way to eternal salvation.

Andy James Court -
Andy James Court invites you all to experience ‘Remember’, his current CD compilation of Inspirational Gospel-Pop songs, that see us journey with him, as he reflects on his relationship with God.

These songs will take you down memory lane to when Andy first connected with God.
They talk about the things that have brought him closer to God, as well as those that have pulled him away.
They reveal his relationship as it was, as it is, and as it should be.

It’s Andy’s prayer that these musical compositions will not only be a source of joy to all that hear them, but that the songs will ignite a heart of worship, bringing people closer to God.

Andy goes by many titles: Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Husband, Daddy, Speaker, and Friend, however, it’s his title as “Child of the most High God” that motivates Andy to fuse all these together and dedicate his life to one of spreading the Gospel through song and testimony.

Andy’s love for music first began to sprout at the tender age of 5, when he’d sing harmonies in the back of the family car, whilst listening to reruns of ‘Grandma’s Feather Bed’ by John Denver. By age 8, his enthusiasm grew for all things music, as he endeavoured to teach himself guitar. His musical journey had just begun, but he was yet to embark on his walk with the Lord.

Growing up in a Christian family, having to go to church every Sunday morning, and attending an all-boys Christian school, did not automatically make Andy James Court, a Christian.
Andy spent most of his early years knowing of God, but not knowing God.

In his early 20s, Andy almost lost his life whilst out surfing. He was slammed mercilessly by a massive 20-foot wave, that not only knocked the air right out of him, but also proceeded to repeatedly suck him underwater, on the “washing machine” ride of his life. In a battle to break to the surface and take a breath, Andy recalls inwardly crying out to God and making a promise, that should he be delivered from the fury of this unrelenting wave, he would dedicate his life to serving God.

An overwhelming burst of fresh air eventually filled Andy’s aching lungs, as he lunged to the surface.

It would, however, take quite a number of years for Andy to recall this promise.

A supernatural encounter with the Living God, took this Perth boy’s life through a complete and radical change, from one of drugs and alcohol, exploring New Age beliefs, and playing in rock bands, to a life dedicated to spreading the message of the Gospel through music. Andy regretted the fact that he’d wasted so many valuable years chasing after worldly things with no eternal value. It wasn’t until he discovered the abundance of God’s Grace, that regret quickly transformed into a hope for the future, and a drive to share his experience with others. “ There were so many times my life could have ended abruptly, from drugs, motocross, car accidents, drowning, and the list goes on, but God had something else in store for me. He now uses my testimony to connect with others who are where I had been. He truly is a God of second chances.”

Three Multi-award winning Gospel albums later, Andy’s passion to tell the world about Jesus continues to burn brighter, as he sings about his journey with Christ during struggles, triumphs, heartache and joy. His musical style blends Contemporary Christian Pop, Black Gospel, Sounds of Africa and Inspirational Power Ballads.

Andy’s ability to connect with audiences on an open and intimate level, his approachable and humorous character, and his message, that flows straight from the heart, help build a bond between him and those who attend his concerts.

Andy has taken his music to churches, schools, prisons, stadiums and festivals, and his concerts and performances have been warmly embraced, touching the lives of thousands.

Andy is also an active partner of Compassion Australia, journeying with them in the work that they do in releasing children from poverty. With four sponsor children of their own, Andy and his wife Sharon regularly encourage people to sponsor a child and make a difference.

DESCRIBE BOOZIENESS - What the Bible Says About Alcohol and Alcoholism

Alcoholics can't control their drinking. If you are an alcoholic, you have a compulsive desire to drink. When you drink, your negative personality traits, such as anger, may be intensified and your problems may seem magnified. In order to cover up your alcoholism, you may tend to overdo in other areas of your life.

Chances are, you need a drink at certain times of the day in order to get going, to face your problems, or to relax. And you may even drink on the job. Of course this means that your work and efficiency is slacking off. And your home life is probably suffering as well. You are enslaved by the sin of alcoholism.

Yet there is hope. God is able to deliver you completely by cleansing, sanctifying, and justifying you (I Corinthians 6:9-11). Though alcohol abuse is a failing of the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21), the Holy Spirit can, and will, produce the self-control you needto overcome it (Galatians 5:22-23).

What Scripture Says

'He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.' (Proverbs 28:13).

'Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective' (James 5:16).

'If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness' (I John 1:8,9).

'Your wickedness will punish you. Your backsliding will rebuke you. Consider then and realize how evil and bitter it is for you when you forsake the Lord your God and have no awe of me' (Jeremiah 2:19).

'For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him' (John 3:17).

'Jesus answered her, 'If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked Him and He would have given you living water'' (John 4:10).

'But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth' (Acts 1:8). (Here is the key to beating alcoholism -- through the power to overcome.)

'But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law' (Galatians 5:22, 23). (God will produce will power for the powerless.)

'Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit' (Ephesians 5:18).

'Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler: whoever is led astray by them is not wise' (Proverbs 20:1).

Is There Hope?

If you have a drinking problem, you have probably felt condemned by yourself and others. Rather than condemning, however, God emphasizes how to overcome by receiving salvation, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the fruit of the Spirit. With these you will have the ability to become free and stay free of alcohol.

The saying 'once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic' is based on the fact that a recovered alcoholic can never go back to drinking in any amount without being controlled by it again. Therefore, you need to ask God to deliver you from the desire to drink at all.

Practical Help

You probably have tried to stop drinking before and it has not worked for you. You may have tried religion or you may even be a Christian. What you need is practical spiritual help. Seek out a Spirit-baptized counselor. Ask him to pray for deliverance for you -- especially from compulsiveness, psychological and physical dependence, and even from the desire to drink.

You may have been told, 'You must stop drinking and never drink again.' But the pressure of having to face life without drinking may be overwhelming. Focus on the present. Decide that you will not have a drink right now. 'Live one day at a time. Each day has enough trouble of its own' (Matthew 6:34).

You need to modify and change your lifestyle. The Bible speaks of being transformed by the renewing of your mind' (Romans12:2). You can renew your mind through your reading and thinking habits. The Bible and devotion testimonial books will be most helpful. Dwell on God and His Word rather than on your problem.

Learn and follow the principle of praise (honor and respect) to God each time you are tempted to drink. 'Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise -- the fruit of lips that confess his name' (Hebrews 13:15). It is important to change your perspective from yourself to God, and from the drink to God. Praise God the Problem-solver rather than the problem. Remember that you can be just as chained to sin by trying not to do it as you are by doing it. As long as your attention is on the sin, you are honoring it. But if your attention is on God, you are honoring Him. 'Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith' (Hebrews 12:2).

Contact a Spirit-filled church, or prayer group, and Alcoholics Anonymous. Try a local church the pastor can help you do this.

You may have a spouse, relative, or friend who is not an alcoholic and wants to help you. He or she may need salvation, the baptism of the Spirit, and the fruit of the Spirit for their own sake. They can then better intercede for your deliverance from alcohol.

Your close relatives may need to know how to help spiritually in your effort to recover. They should know that openly condemning an alcoholic is not effective. It may just feed your sense of 'joyous agony' because you are 'getting what you deserve.' Jesus came to save, not to condemn (John 3:17).

That's not to say that they should tolerate your alcoholic behavior. Instead, they should offer to help you. Your spouse, friends, or relatives can find out how to help you by contacting a Spirit-filled fellowship, AA, or ALANON, an organization for friends and relatives of alcoholics.

As You Pray

If you are not yet a born-again Christian, ask God to forgive you, save you and fill you with the Holy Spirit. An unforgiven, unclean drunkard cannot inherit the Kingdom of God (I Corinthians 6:10; I John 1:8,9; Romans 10:13; Luke 13:5; Acts 1:8).

Pray for deliverance. Offer thanks and praise for God's deliverance, mercy, ever-present help and power to overcome.

Pray for deliverance from fear -- the fear that 'I won't be able to make it' (II Timothy 1:7).

If you want to experience God's abundant LIFE, pray this simple prayer with me:

Heavenly Father, I come to you in Jesus' name. I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and rose from the grave to give me life. I know You are the only way to God so now I want to quit disobeying You and start living for You. Please forgive me, change my life and show me how to know You. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Faith That Moves - There are only two people in the Bible that were said to have 'GREAT FAITH' by Jesus. One was the Centurian and the other was this woman. Both of them were Gentiles and probably considered not worthy of receiving anything from God because of it.


I] There were three obstacles facing this woman:

#1. Jesus was silent. Perhaps He wanted her to exercise her faith and put it into action. There are many times in our own lives when we ask God for a specific thing over and over and don’t see any results. All we get is silence from God and we think that He is not listening. He may be putting our faith to the test!!!.

There are two types of faith; #1.The faith that says; I believe but doesn’t move on what they believe. And on the other hand is;#2.'Great Faith', persistant faith, faith that will refuse to give up because of a word from God. Real faith is more than just saying that you have faith. It’s moving on God’s principles even though the odds may be against you. JAMES 2:18 SAYS; 'But someone may say, you have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works'.

#2. Another obstacle was the rejection from the disciples. Has someone ever rejected you? Don’t let that become the obstacle between you and God. It just may be the difference between receiving your miracle or not. This woman was not going to let her opportunity pass her by. Even though the disciples asked Jesus to send her away she kept on coming.

#3. She was undeserving. She was a Gentile, a sinner and a woman, three strikes against her in Jewish society. When we come to God we too feel many times that we are undeserving and we are. But the blood of Jesus makes us clean and now when God looks at us, He sees His son. He sees us through His blood that was shed for us on that cross. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel that you are not worthy!!


GREAT FAITH MOVES GOD!!!

II] There was eight things about this woman that moved God into action;

#1. She was short and to the point. She didn’t have time for the long religious prayer. She needed her miracle now!!!
Look at verse 22. 'HAVE MERCY ON ME SON OF DAVID, MY DAUGHTER HAS A DEMON'. Verse 25, 'HELP ME'.

#2. She was humble. Being humbe is a condition of the heart. 'HUMBLE YOURSELF IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD AND HE WILL LIFT YOU UP'.

#3. She was fervant(showing great emotion) It wasn’t external emotionalism but it came from her innermost being and all of the sudden she became a worshipper of God, 'SHE CAME AND KNEELING, WORSHIPED HIM'(v.25).

#4. She was desperate. This word comes from the word despair. It’s when a person is overcome by a sense of defeat.
Perhaps she had tried everything else and this was her only hope, like the lady with the issue of blood.
She had gone to the exorcist and he couldn’t do anything; to the doctor and he couldn’t do anything; to the sorceror and he couldn’t do anything. And all of the sudden she found out that Jesus was in town and something inside of her jumped and gave her witness that this was her day!!!

#5. She was rational. She knew that Jesus could do it. She wasn’t asking for something that was impossible. This wasn’t a luxury, it was a necessity. Many times we don’t get what we ask for because it’s not really necessary.

#6. She was worshipful, respectful and acknowledged who Jesus was, look

Paul Hieser Music - P H M is Paul Hieser and Lance Kamin. The band is based in the Stateline area of Illinois and Wisconsin. With a deep desire to serve God through music, PHM performs songs about the love and power of Christ, relationships and the world we live in.

A little about Paul Hieser (pronounced 'high-sir'):

'I started writing music 1 year after I received my first guitar. But, it wasn't until I gave my life to the Lord in 1996 that I began writing for Jesus.'
'Music has been in my family for generations. Dad played guitar and sang in many choirs, including Barber Shop Choirs (man, can those guys harmonize!). His brother sang and directed a church choir in rural Illinois. Mom played piano and autoharp. Her grandmother played piano as well. Both of my brothers are talented musicians and have performed professionally in their home states of Indiana and Texas.'
'My strength here on earth is my wife and soul-mate, Teri. Of all the people I know, I have never know anyone who expresses a love for God like her. Now, she'll tell you that she can't play an instrument or sing. BUT, she can write amazing lyrics! She has co-authored many songs for PHM.'
'Both of our sons have been blessed with the gift of music as well. Justin is a professional musician with Rise Records. Josh has had his music published through QuickStar Productions. More importantly, they are both saved by the grace of God!'
'I am excited that my friend and brother, Lance Kamin, has partnered with me in this music ministry. Lance brings another dimension of sound and wisdom to PHM. Lance, you rock brother!'
Praise God for His son, Jesus Christ, and for His continual inspiration through the Holy Spirit!

Gear Endorsements: Seagull, Epiphone, Fender acoustic guitars, Line 6, Acoustec, D'Addario, Ernie Ball, Shure

A little about Lance Kamin:

God has been a part of my life since I was young, but it wasn't until the early 90's that I personally asked Jesus Christ to take over my life. My supportive wife, Linda and I are a blended family with four sons and eight wonderful grandchildren!'
'I have enjoyed playing music since I was nine years old. I started learning piano, then started playing guitar and bass guitar in bands through out my teenage years. In the 70's, I was a “union musician” and I played with “show lounge” bands in the Chicago area. After being born again, I have had many opportunities to use the musical and vocal talent God has given me, in leading worship at various churches and playing keyboards with a Christian band called Cross Roads.'
'God is leading me down a slightly different path with Paul Hieser Music and I'm eagerly anticipating the work He will do through us. My hope is that through the talents that God has given to each one of us, a life will be changed through the words and music of the songs we perform. I will enjoy the challenges and joys of performing and writing with such talented and God-centered individual.' 'I am looking forward to what God has in store for the ministry of Paul Hieser Music!
'Praise be to God through Jesus Christ His only Son, in the power of the Holy Spirit.'

Gear Endorsements: Alesis, Casio, Digitech, Gibson, Ibanez, and Carvin, (don't I wish!)
