Jaylene believes and is baptized.
Susan and numbers. She no longer wants to go through the wilderness. Wants to be baptized.
Matthew grew up in non Christian home. Now his family is here. Now believes that Jesus is the son of God and died for him. He accepted and chooses to follow Jesus.
Leoni felt unloved and unworthy. Wanted to end her life and then God intervened. At that moment she knew. Came to a youth event scarred. Found out they were not so scary. I know I've been saved. I want to be Baptised.
Nathan started coming to www.EasTview.org earlier this year. Felt he was not good enough for redemption. Went to a retreat and decided to become a follower of Jesus. Johnny prayed with me. Wanted to be baptized. Is choosing to follow Jesus.
Juanita grew up in a wonderful Christian home. Went to a weekend retreat at Briercrest. Baptised just before wedding. Told that her 2nd baby should be aborted but he was born alive and is now doing fine. Had a third healthy baby.
August was into sports. Went to church as an obligation. Got major injury. Baptised at Springfield Heights Mennonite Church. When our son was about to be born a lady helped our daughter off the play structure. It turned out that she was the head nurse at NICU. My play book now is the Bible. We want to be part of this.
Sing now. Hark the herald angels sing glory to the newborn king.

Dave F has been fellowshipping at Willowdale Tyndale church for 2 years. They are a small church plant from www.EasTview.org
Stephane S spent a year in Sweden and did outreach to Poland from there. Basketball camp. Now want to be an ongoing witness. To Pray with people.
Dave Sinclair-Peters working with Burmese migrant workers and planted 3 churches among them. Isaiah was trafficked into Thailand and Jesus transformed his life. He is now planting churches in Burma Myanmar. 10 interns were sent to discipleship school.
Louise and a team delivered computers to a school of 300 when they were interrupted by 5 angry monks. After Louise spoke to them they calmed down but forbade them to go to the next village. But they did anyway.
Message by Louise
That encounter was scarry. The Spirit of intimation is what Satan uses to stop Christians from witnessing.
2 Timothy 1:7 God has not given us a spirit of timidity but with power love and a sound mind.
Courage is learned. Try it 50 times. Pastor Isaiah has planted 10 churches among the Burmese migrants. Share your testimony again and again. Pray and pray.
MBMSI prayer team was sent out to be ninja warriors. Isaiah started to teach farmers how to farm. Developed trust and farmers became Christians. At Christmas he put on a party. The monks wrecked the generator. A woman from another village came and was healed of breast cancer and told their neighbours inviting them to the next village.
Isaiah was arrested and released. The doors are wide open now.
The prayers are effective. 2 Moravian Christians sold themselves for Christ knowing they would never come back. Are you prepared to do that?
Dave and Louise have been missionaries since 2000 and are now moving to Burma and learning the language.
Eastview has a mission budget of $140,000 to be raised December 23 & 24

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
Riches I heed not, nor man's empty gain,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.
High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven's joys, O bright Heaven's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
Delbert Enns pastor www.EasTview.org
Begin your day with prayer
Pastor Dave Ens
Stories - Exodus the story of Moses
Moses is redeemed from the Egyptian curse. He became a ruler over his own people. He killed an Egyptian and was found out and had to run.
Your story is the most effective witness the church has. About a life that is lived. Your way of life. Not just theory and ideas. Your life is a witness.
Micah 6:8 walk humbly with your God
We love embracing love but not so much to walk with Him. We don't like conflict. We are uncomfortably doing what God wants.
Moses ran from conflict. To do the right thing. The only way to avoid conflict is to do nothing. He went to the wilderness. Herding sheep. Moses's story is not about him but about God. A new chapter in life. God called Moses to act 3:7-10
This was God's plan. Save your people. God will do this. Moses said BUT 5 times. Send someone else. He knew he would have a lot of conflict if he did this. Pharoah doesn't like me. I hear you God BUT
Don't let the negatives get you down. Accept and embrace what God has for you. John 10:10 the Sheep have to do their part to survive.
What's your story? What drives you?
Nobody likes conflict. Focus on God. 4:14 God was getting angry at Moses. But God was patient with him and the story becomes a story of God's grace.
What's your story? Face your fears. Tell it.

Wedding ceremony for Elizabeth and Adam
http://bible.com/111/jhn.17.20-23.NIV "My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
True unity is only available in Jesus. The cross is also the way to restore unity through prayer.
As a doctor Elizabeth knows about unity. As a doctor Adam knows the importance of reduced resistance in the wind tunnel. Prayer sustains and reduces the resistance. God holds the universe together. God loves you just like he loves his Son.
Help the world believe.
Will you be faithful to her alone as long as you both shall live?
I give you this ring as a sign of the covenant
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
Dec 4 Baptism Sunday
Dave Ens www.EasTview.org
What is the church? What would the world look like if God were in charge?
Meeting the needs of others is foundational in reflecting God. Do we develop donor fatigue?
If our motivation is in the wrong place it can be damaging. 7 sons of the priest thought they could drive out a demon but the demon overpowered them. Acts 17
Jesus said invite the poor. Don't just consider them a project.
Genesis 12:1-3 you will be a blessing
Matthew http://bible.com/111/mat.6.25.NIV "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
It's hard to be a blessing when we worry.
Trust God to meet your needs and God will bless you and make you a blessing.
We help others and expect recognition. That's wrong. We need to do it because of what God has given us.
The love of Christ motivates us. Even when people are ungrateful.
When we meet needs the way God wants us to there are going to be people that will pick up the desire to help others.
God wants to pour into others like Jesus did for us.

Music: Sweet Holy Spirit
There's a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place
And I know that it's the Spirit of the Lord
There are sweet expressions on each face
And I know they feel the presence of the Lord
Sweet Holy Spirit... sweet heavenly dove...
Stay right here with us
Filling us with Your love
And for these blessings
We lift our hearts in praise
Without a doubt we know
That we'll have been revived
When we shall leave this place
One of our favorite Pat Boone songs after our first born son Kris died.
We each need a personal revelation from God.
David Wilkerson asked: whatever happened to repentance?
Real change comes after real repentance. Jesus preached repentance all the time. Get ready now for Jesus's coming again.
What are you holding on to? Repent. Get in the right place! You might look good on the outside but be full of dead man's bones. You can't fool God.
Repentance is more than walking in the opposite direction. The Bible tells us it's more. To feel remorse and to WANT to change direction. Do what it takes. Get good mind food. Train yourself to want it for yourself. Change comes when I realized that I was hurting my Father and his creation. When I'm hurting me I'm hurting everyone. Need to Want real change.
Godly sorrow produces Repentance. Need to get sick of the sinful life. Not having fun. Homeless. In a crack shack. Not Fun.
Do you think just believing in Jesus is enough?
Are masses of unrepentant people thinking they'll get to heaven on easy street?
TC has impacted 100s of 1000s over the years. You need true repentance.
Jesus died on the cross for you. Repeat after me. My wife had a huge collection of horror movies. Now she has repented and can't stand them any more.
Real repentance can lead to a pile of tears. Overwhelmed about what God is doing. Peter cried when he realized that he had denied his Lord Jesus. God is greater than anything.
Keep repenting. Sorrow for sin should be our constant teacher. Deep sorrow is good. 7 churches of Revelation are given a view of themselves. 2:4 lost love.
We are here to dedicate our lives to Jesus. Love God with all your heart.
Repent. Not enough time?
Become best friends with the Holy Spirit. Say yes to Jesus.
Starting point class starts in a few weeks.
Christmas day and New Year's falls on Sunday this year. We will have normal church service times.
Spirit Empowered Living
1. Passionate. Be Christ centered.
2. The Word of God is living and active
3. Passionately Spirit Empowered
God wants to birth something new and timely. To be Spirit led.
Focus on the Supernatural God. The Holy Spirit is the doorway providing the right equipment. Jesus rules.
Make disciples of all nations. We cannot fulfill the Great Commission without the filling of the Holy Spirit. Wait for the Power.
How he equips us
2. Gifts 1 Corinthians 12:3
http://bible.com/111/1co.12.3-5.NIV Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus be cursed," and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit. There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.
Without it we can't be witnesses. There is confusion about supernatural gifts. Satan can do it to. Through people. Acts 8:9 Phillip is traveling through Samaria and there was a man who had been doing magic.
You can tell a tree by its fruit and God's spirit will not scare you. Satan has experience in heaven and can imitate Christ. Quit messing around with things that are not of the Spirit of God.
Gifts here means charisma - grace endowment. Undeserved. This charismatic church has been endowed. The phone has to be plugged in and it comes alive when it's charged.
Last week Mel spoke in tongues for the 1st time.
Practice the gifts - prophecy and all other gifts. Pursue them. Make room for the gifts. 1 Corinthians. They are for the purpose of God. Ephesians 4. Build in love.
3. He guides us into all truth. Let him lead you. It is something to grow into. Worship in Spirit and in Truth. John 4:
4. He speaks to us what he hears. I recognize my wife's voice from across the noisy room.
5. He HELPS us. Paracletos - someone alongside. A legal advocate.
