THERE ARE --- ONLY --- FIVE TYPES OF MEETINGS TO BE FOUND IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

IT IS VITAL TO NOTE AT THIS POINT THERE ARE --- ONLY --- FIVE TYPES OF MEETINGS TO BE FOUND IN THE NEW TESTAMENT; AND ARE THE MANNER IN WHICH THE EARLY CHRISTIANS MET!

THESE 5 MEETINGS ARE: -

1. COVENANT MEETING --- [Breaking of bread, Communion, etc.]

2. PRAYER MEETING --- [to be the mouthpiece of the Holy Spirit]

3. WORSHIP MEETING --- [praise from our hearts, minds and lips in worship.]

4. GOOD NEWS MEETING --- [Outreach to backsliders, unsaved people.]

5. BIBLE STUDY MEETING --- [acceptance of sanctification by believers]

Meetings are to be conducted in way that will be conducive to the flow of the Holy Spirit’s manifestation in any particular meeting.


UNDERSTANDING YOURSELF AND OTHERS

We need to understand the four basic temperaments that are God given in each individual, looking at their strengths and weaknesses with a better understanding of how the Holy Spirit can use them for God’s glory.

The purpose of knowing the temperaments is so that we become able to build each other up, and to stop judging each other just because we are different from each other.

It also helps us deal with frustration, condemnation, guilt, and anxiety by making us realize why we do the things we do.

    Temperament is defined as - the combination of behavior ways that we are born with that causes us to behave in the ways we do.

    Character is defined as being the result of our natural temperament adapted by childhood training, education, selected attitudes, selected beliefs, what principles we choose, and what reasons prompts us to do the things we do.

    Personality is defined as the way we show ourselves to others, which may or may not be the same as our character depending on how genuine we are.

While your temperament is the real you, your character and personality are like the clothes that you wear an the reasons you choose to wear them.

By learning the temperaments we can

    Know what we are made of.

    Know who we really are.

    Know why we react as we do.

    Know our strengths and how to grow them.

    Know our weaknesses and how to overcome them.
