FOLLOW FIRST CENTURY FAITH®
Awakening Book Club
We live in the most exciting days of human history. The Spirit of God is restoring the understanding of our identity as covenant people in a living and vibrant relationship with the Creator and King of the Universe. The roots of His church are being revealed and exposed for all to experience anew. There is a refreshing wind coming from the first century, the time of Jesus, and it is permeating the hearts and minds of His people with insight, discernment, clarity, confidence and true palpable power for living! “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!” – Psalm 34:8
The body of Christ is rising up in the strength and security that comes with steadfast faith, immovable and unshakable! Stones are being turned over, dry ground is being nourished and becoming fertile, and brittle bones are being washed to dance with joy immeasurable. The dead are awakening to new life and we are witnessing resurrection power as it was in the first century.
Thousands of years of filters of interpretation are being removed as we journey back in time to read the Scriptures in the context of the first century. Sit at the feet of Jesus and the apostles and disciples after Him to hear their thoughts, their perspective, and their foundational beliefs revealed in their teachings, plain and simple, without filters of interpretation. Notice a common theme of assurance, of confidence, of faith that stirred hearts, changed lives and obliterated the religious systems of the day as they are once again doing in our time.
The Awakening Book Club offers to explore and discuss relevant books that offer understanding of the foundation, form and function of the faith of the first century faithful - those individuals who lived their lives uncompromised, aligned to the fullness of the complete Scriptures as modeled and taught by Jesus and those immediately after Him.
"Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is,
and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls." Jeremiah 6:16

"The Messianic Church Arising: Restoring the Church to Our Covenant Roots"
The Messianic Church Arising has revival within its pages. It was written to help us experience the fullness of Christianity, to know Christianity as God intended it and to find our identity and security in this foundation. Its content will help us regain the blessings of our lost inheritance in discovering or uncovering our identity as His people in the empowerment and security of covenant relationship. Once you grasp the root into which you are grafted, the power of that root springs forth in you.
“Remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus, you, who formerly were far off, have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” Ephesians 2:12-13
The Father is inviting you to seek, knock, and ask that your joy may be made full and your heart released to the freedom we have in our true identity as covenant children with the Father through Christ Jesus. May His mercy and compassion draw you closer to experiencing the majesty of His bold love and grand affection. This is what your heart has longed for, a deeper and more profound understanding of the Father’s heart for you.
