  1. Behold, a serpent wandering the earth, thirsting for your souls, “Simon, Simon, behold Satan has demanded to sift ALL of you like wheat”, I wonder …who shall deny the christ?

  2. vs. 5 Make sure that your name is written in the Book of Life. Know Jesus and do his will so that he does not say “depart from me I never knew you”.

  3. 5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

    When we are born again, we will have a day that said we were born into the church. I am glad that we can be established in our God. The beginning of being established is being born again, becoming new creatures in Christ. This is only the beginning of our walk with God and we add to our walk with God from that day forward. We need to be established in God, this will help us see and understand why we do and don’t do some things!!

  4. Zephaniah 3:14-17 KJV
    14. Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.
    15. The Lord hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the Lord, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.
    16. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.
    17. The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.

  5. Verses 6-7 MSG “God registers their names in his book: “This one, this one, and this one—born again, right here.” Singers and dancers give credit to Zion: “All my springs are in you!” Wow…..this one, this one, and this one-born again, right here (POFW).

  6. The word’s getting out on Zion: “Men and women, right and left, get born again in her!” GOD registers their names in his book: “This one, this one, and this one— born again, right here.” (Psalm 87:5, 6 MSG)

    YES!!! As for me, I MUST have my name written in the book of life, and my name MUST stay there ( book of life)no matter what!!!!
    I’ve been adopted, and so have you!
    Praise GOD, called and chosen….GLORIA!

    This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?” God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance!!!!

  7. iLove to eat the Word

    “This Man Was Born There”

    5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

    As children of the Most High God, born of the water and the Spirit, we can say that we were born in the great city of Zion. Being born in the city of God, God will establish us and we will prosper.

    Galatians 4:26 KJV But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

  8. 5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

    Once we are born again we must start rejoicing in The Lord and establish ourself with him.

  9. I Love You, Jesus.
    I would rather dwell in the gates of the righteous then the gates of the wicked. Thank you Lord for bringing me out, once again. I love God’s word. And everything that is God and that belongs to God. Because He is the waymaker. Thankyou Jesus for being my friend you are always with me. Thankyou Jesus.

    I am VICTORIOUS IN CHRIST!!!!

  10. GOD registers their names in his book: “This one, this one, and this one— born again, right here.” (Psalm 87:6 MSG)

    *I want to be a name that God has remembered and has registered in his book of life. I want to be made new and whole all over again! And again, again. I need you Jesus more and more. and I think more then ever. Allow me to stay focus for what you have for me. Don’t allow me to lose hope I would live for you. A I want to be in your book. Nothing else matters.

  11. 5-6 The word’s getting out on Zion: “Men and women, right and left, get born again in her!” God registers their names in his book: “This one, this one, and this one— born again, right here.” MSG

    Amen. I am so thankful to be counted among those who have been born again! The word is getting out in Ft. Worth about the Pentecostals of Ft. Worth! The harvest is NOW!

  12. 3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

    This can be fortworth great things are said and being done.

  13. 6 The Lord shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

    Can you see the book of life?? God loves us so very much that He takes the time to write our names in the book of life, but not only that but He also writes where we were born again. Just like any other parent keeps a baby book so does our Heavenly Father. I am so in love with my Lord and Savior. No one loves like He does. Thank you Jesus for ALWAYS loving us.

  14. 2 The Lord loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

    3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

    It is a honor and privilege to be born into the Kingdom of God. Glorious things are being done and spoke of by many because of God’s greatness and the Kingdom belongs to Him.

  15. Citizenship

    Psalms 87:5-6
    Yes, of Zion it shall be said, This man and that man were born in her, for the Most High Himself will establish her.
    The Lord shall count, when He registers the peoples, that this man was born there. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

    Hebrew citizenship came only by the proof of ancestry. The family had to be registered, and those names could be traced back to the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Israel.

    Without this proof you became an outsider.

    The bible tells us that no sinner has citizenship in heaven, only those born again, or written in the book of life.

    Revelation 21:27
    And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie:but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

    If your name is in the book today then in God’s eyes you are already there. You are a citizenship of heaven!

    Thank God for the blood that applied his name to our lives that grants us access into the city where the lamb is the light!

  16. WHY TAKING ATTENDANCE IS IMPORTANT

    6 The Lord shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

    The LORD in his infinite way of recording, has record of every word ever spoken in any language by any individual. This same process of recording is how he manages the Kingdom of GOD.

    We understand the importance of be Born Again, as the psalmist said, the LORD shall count ever one that is born there, because our names will be recorded eternally when we are baptized in the name of JESUS, as we are born of the blood of the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world.

    Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

    We should share the gospel everywhere we go and make sure we are attentive to the names and number of people that are added to the church.

  17. 7 The singers as well as the players on instruments shall say, All my springs (my sources of life and joy) are in you [city of our God].

    John 7:38 – He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

    The importance of filling your soul up with the source of our life, Jesus Christ is evident in this verse. To the Music Ministry Team – we can’t give out spiritual if we don’t have spiritual within us. Whatever we are feeding our spirit is what is going to flow out of us as we we lead in praise, worship and choir. We must have the springs of living water flowing from us, so that the congregation feels the presence of God.

    Jesus is our source. It is through His word, prayer, fasting and our relationships with Him that we have life. We must partake of that life everyday in order to survive spiritually.

  18. “And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.” There may be storms, and there may be shakings. Never the less whatever Jesus (the Creator) establishes, shall be, until God (Jesus) says elsewise. What a mighty God we serve, thank God for his word! God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all, in Jesus name, Amen

  19. 1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.

    2 The Lord loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

    Gods very foundation is in holiness. We can’t put our foundation in the faulty world and build ourselves up to meet God. Our foundation must be separated from the world.

    Our foundation should be in The Lord, and The Lords is in the holy mountains. Jesus said
    Matthew 7:24
    24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

    What better rock than the holy mountain of God to build our house on? Or better yet to build the temple of God on?

    1 Corinthians 6:19
    19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

    If our foundation is upon anything other than the rock Christ Jesus we will wash away in life’s storms. But if we build upon Him then even if he has to strip us down to the core we have a firm foundation in Him that we can cling to and He can build us up anew.

  20. The Lord will write in the register of the peoples this one was born in Zion. We must do everything we can to make sure our name is written in the book of life

  21. “The servants went out into the streets and gathered all that they found, bad and good alike, and the hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to meet the guests he saw a man there not dressed in a wedding garment.” Both the lambs and goats enter, so if the wicked were already denied, and the jews are his lambs, who are the goats?

  22. 6 The Lord shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

    7 As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.

    I want to be in that book…. Please I pray that I don’t allow situations to make me lose hope or focus of what really matters. It’s not about the circumstance but the attitude and the emotion you have during your circumstance. I want my name in that book and I had to do what I’m supposed to do to get it there… I can’t give up, I won’t go back. Jesus you and your praise is the only thing that will get me through. I need you

  23. 5-6 The word’s getting out on Zion: “Men and women, right and left, get born again in her!” God registers their names in his book: “This one, this one, and this one— born again, right here.” MSG

    People are hungry for the Lord, so be prepared for the Lord to put someone in your path. When co-workers/friends see you are different they are gonna wanna know. God help us to be ready to do your work. Let’s keep the “FIRE” burning.

  24. 1, “HIS foundation is in the holy mountains.”
    5, “And of Zion is shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.”
    6, “The Lord shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.”

    We must be born again in order to have our names written in the Lambs Book of Life. When the Lord takes count and looks at the Book, He will know those who are His children.

    2 Timothy 2:19 says, “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”

  25. 5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.
    6 The Lord shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.
    7 As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.

    We are born in Zion-the church. He writes our names one by one as we are again of water & spirit. And his singers, players & springs are in the church too. In looking up springs, I finds fountains of waters or sources if satisfaction. Living water flows in Zion to satify our every need! How blessed we are to have our names written in his book of life & to have our souls satisfied by him!

  26. 6 God registers their names in his book: “This one, this one, and this one — born again, right here.” (MSG)

    I pray this is the biggest book of all! That all the names of our family and friends to be found in it. In Jesus Name!

  27. Choir we are making a difference, and let God’s song flow thru us like springs, or like liking waters. “Giving God the Glory”……………Amen & Amen………………..

    7 As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.

    “God Bless Church”……………………………………………………………………..

  28. As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee. -Psalms 87:7

    Glory to God forever! I shall continue have a song of praise in my heart!

  29. v5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

    As citizens of the Kingd of GOD, we should above reproach and give honor to those who are in authority. John raw those who belong to the Kingdom Of GOD coming from many nations, people’s, and tongues.

    What will identify us as citizens of GOD ‘S
    Kingdom ? Been born again of water and the Spirit . Our obedience to GOD’s Word and belief that JESUS CHRIST rose from the dead has changed our destinies from spiritual death to life eternal.

  30. Glory of the church

    1 On the holy mount stands the city he founded;
    2 the Lord loves the gates of Zion
    more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.
    3 Glorious things of you are spoken,
    O city of God.
    Selah
    (Psalms 87:1-3 ESV)

    This Psalm speaks of the glory of the church. It is known by all those around. The world may think the church is just a country club gathering but it won’t be long that the world will know of the glory of the church. We will rise up and let God be known in the city.

  31. 3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

    We live in one of the greatest cities in the world. We have the favor of God on our church. It’s time to Arise and take authority over the land that God has given us

  32. Written in the book 5. And of Zi’-on it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall established her. 6.The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Se’-lah. 7. As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee. I AM VICTORIOUS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST MY LORD !!!!!!!!! I want my name to be written in the book of the Lamb I don’t want to drown in JESUS NAME!!!!!! I want to make Heaven my home !!!!!!

  33. 5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

    6 The Lord shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

    This thought came to mind.. A heavenly and spiritual birth certificate. You are born again of royal citizenship. The city of Zion, the new Jerusalem. The most amazing thing is to be born again into the Kingdom if God, that your name may be found in the book of life.

  34. 5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

    God is just waiting on someone to climb the mountain of praise before he establishes his will in their life.

  35. 1 His foundation is in the holy mountains. 2 The Lord loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. 3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

    God has put his underlying principles in the holy mountains of Zion. We as followers of Christ must have Christ as our underlying principles or foundations.

    I would love for God to say that The Lord loves the sanctuary of POFW more than any other dwelling place in the USA! Oh how glorious it is when The Lord inhabits the praises of His people!

  36. The singers as well as the players on instruments shall say, All my springs (my sources of life and joy) are in you [city of our God]. (Psalm 87:7 AMP)

    He is the source of my life!! 

    And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. (Revelation 21:6 NLT)

  37. 6 The Lord shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.
    God will take account of every thing we do. We have to make sure we are ready at all times right with God. We got to have our name written down. There’s a new name written down in glory and it mine..oh yes its mine!

  38. Leading By Testimony

    3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

    What testimony do we bring from the church to the world? What testimony comes from the church house, from our congregation, from our house, from our lives? We know leadership is influence, and the testimony that is spoken (and not just by us but through us and by others too) is an opportunity to begin to influence the lives of those who hear it. Just like in Jesus’ day, some may come who never get a flyer on their door but hear of the miracles, and end up leaving born again. And as with Joseph while he was in prison, the butler spoke of him and God’s working through him to pharaoh and God used that in elevating Joseph out of prison and into a position of direct power and influence over Egypt and surrounding areas, even to the extent of saving his family and preserving God’s covenant people.

    Joseph likely never realized when his brothers cast him into that pit in the wilderness that it would progress to him as prime minister over Egypt and saving his family during the great famine that came. But the influence of God in his life produced a testimony that came with God’s influence extended through Joseph as Joseph found himself in leadership time and again. I can see that process at work in POFW as well as God is taking us forward and doing things we could never imagine as we follow Him.

    Matthew 5:16
    Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    Jeremiah 29:11
    11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

  39. This song of Zion speaks prophetically of the time when Zion really will be the center of the universal kingdom of the Messiah. Zion is God’s elect city(vv.1-3), a place where even the Gentiles are gathered (vv.4-6), and the source of new life in God’s kingdom (v.7).
