THE BARNABAS FACTOR 1 THESSALONIANS 5: 11 & 14 THEREFORE ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER AND

THE BARNABAS FACTOR 1 THESSALONIANS 5: 11 & 14 THEREFORE ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER AND BUILD UP ONE ANOTHER, JUST AS YOU ALSO ARE DOING. WE URGE YOU, BRETHREN, ADMONISH ENCOURAGE THE FAINTHEARTED, HELP PATIENT WITH EVERYONE. THE UNRULY, THE WEAK, BE 2 THESSALONIANS 2: 17 BE ENCOURAGED IN YOUR HEARTS AND STRENGTHENED EVERY GOOD DEED AND WORD. IN HEBREWS 3: 13 BUT ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER DAY AFTER DAY, AS LONG AS IT IS STILL CALLED “TODAY, ” SO THAT NONE OF YOU WILL BE HARDENED BY THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN. . .

THE BARNABAS FACTOR HEBREWS 10: 25 …NOT FORSAKING OUR OWN ASSEMBLING TOGETHER, AS IS

THE BARNABAS FACTOR HEBREWS 10: 25 …NOT FORSAKING OUR OWN ASSEMBLING TOGETHER, AS IS THE HABIT OF SOME, BUT ENCOURAGING ONE ANOTHER; AND ALL THE MORE AS YOU SEE THE DAY DRAWING NEAR. 2 TIMOTHY 4: 2 PREACH THE WORD; BE PREPARED IN SEASON AND OUT OF SEASON; CORRECT, REBUKE AND ENCOURAGE—WITH GREAT PATIENCE AND CAREFUL INSTRUCTION. TITUS 1: 9 HE MUST HOLD FIRMLY TO THE TRUSTWORTHY MESSAGE AS IT HAS BEEN TAUGHT, SO THAT HE CAN ENCOURAGE OTHERS BY SOUND DOCTRINE AND REFUTE THOSE WHO OPPOSE IT.

THE BARNABAS FACTOR ACTS 4: 32 -37 AND THE CONGREGATION OF THOSE WHO BELIEVED

THE BARNABAS FACTOR ACTS 4: 32 -37 AND THE CONGREGATION OF THOSE WHO BELIEVED WERE OF ONE HEART AND SOUL; AND NOT ONE OF THEM CLAIMED THAT ANYTHING BELONGING TO HIM WAS HIS OWN, BUT ALL THINGS WERE COMMON PROPERTY TO THEM. AND WITH GREAT POWER THE APOSTLES WERE GIVING TESTIMONY TO THE RESURRECTION OF THE ABUNDANT GRACE WAS UPON THEM ALL. FOR LORD JESUS, AND THERE WAS NOT A NEEDY PERSON AMONG THEM, FOR ALL WHO WERE OWNERS OF LAND OR HOUSES WOULD SELL THEM AND BRING THE PROCEEDS OF THE SALES AND LAY THEM AT THE APOSTLES’ FEET, AND THEY WOULD BE DISTRIBUTED TO EACH AS ANY HAD NEED. NOW JOSEPH, A LEVITE OF CYPRIAN BIRTH, WHO WAS ALSO CALLED BARNABAS BY THE APOSTLES (WHICH TRANSLATED MEANS SON OF ENCOURAGEMENT), AND WHO OWNED A TRACT OF LAND, SOLD IT AND BROUGHT THE MONEY AND LAID IT AT THE APOSTLES’ FEET.

AN ENCOURAGER GIVES FREELY OF THEIR RESOURCES LUKE 3: 3 AND HE CAME INTO

AN ENCOURAGER GIVES FREELY OF THEIR RESOURCES LUKE 3: 3 AND HE CAME INTO ALL THE DISTRICT AROUND THE JORDAN, PREACHING A BAPTISM OF REPENTANCE FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. LUKE 3: 8 -11 THEREFORE BEAR FRUITS IN KEEPING WITH REPENTANCE… INDEED THE AXE IS ALREADY LAID AT THE ROOT OF THE TREES; SO EVERY TREE THAT DOES NOT BEAR GOOD FRUIT IS CUT DOWN AND THROWN INTO THE FIRE. ” AND QUESTIONING HIM, SAYING, WHAT SHALL WE DO? ” “THEN THE CROWDS WERE AND HE WOULD ANSWER AND SAY TO THEM, “THE MAN WHO HAS TWO TUNICS IS TO SHARE WITH HIM WHO HAS NONE; AND HE WHO HAS FOOD IS TO DO LIKEWISE”.

ENCOURAGERS GIVE WITH AN OPEN-HAND ATTITUDE THEY ARE NOT LOOKING FOR ANYTHING IN RETURN.

ENCOURAGERS GIVE WITH AN OPEN-HAND ATTITUDE THEY ARE NOT LOOKING FOR ANYTHING IN RETURN. THEY COULD CARE LESS WHO GETS THE CREDIT. JOB 1: 21 “NAKED I CAME FROM MY MOTHER’S WOMB, AND NAKED I SHALL RETURN THERE. THE LORD GAVE AND THE LORD HAS TAKEN AWAY. BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THELORD. ” ACTS 4: 32 -33 THE CONGREGATION OF THOSE WHO BELIEVED WERE OF ONE HEART AND SOUL; AND NOT ONE OF THEM CLAIMED THAT ANYTHING BELONGING TO HIM WAS HIS OWN, BUT ALL THINGS WERE COMMON PROPERTY TO THEM. AND WITH GREAT POWER THE APOSTLES WERE GIVING TESTIMONY TO THE RESURRECTION OF THE JESUS, AND ABUNDANT GRACE WAS UPON THEM ALL. LORD

AN ENCOURAGER ACCEPTS US WHERE WE ARE ACTS 9: 21 ALL THOSE HEARING HIM

AN ENCOURAGER ACCEPTS US WHERE WE ARE ACTS 9: 21 ALL THOSE HEARING HIM CONTINUED TO BE AMAZED, AND WERE SAYING, “IS THIS NOT HE WHO IN JERUSALEM DESTROYED THOSE WHO CALLED ON THIS NAME, AND WHO HAD COME HERE FOR THE PURPOSE OF BRINGING THEM BOUND BEFORE THE CHIEF PRIESTS? ” ACTS 9: 27 BUT BARNABAS TOOK HOLD OF HIM AND BROUGHT HIM TO THE APOSTLES AND DESCRIBED TO THEM HOW HE HAD SEEN THE LORD ON THE ROAD, AND THAT HE HAD TALKED TO HIM, AND DAMASCUS HE HAD SPOKEN OUT BOLDLY IN THE NAME OF JESUS. HOW AT

AN ENCOURAGER ACCEPTS US WHERE WE ARE JESUS IS OUR ENCOURAGER EXAMPLE HE HAS

AN ENCOURAGER ACCEPTS US WHERE WE ARE JESUS IS OUR ENCOURAGER EXAMPLE HE HAS THE HEART. . . ATTITUDE. . . DISPOSITION. . . AND BEHAVIOR. . . OF AN ENCOURAGER. SIMON PETER HE WOULD DENY CHRIST – WHY CALL HIM TO BE AN APOSTLE? MATTHEW A TAX COLLECTOR – FOCUSED ON MATERIALISM ADULTEROUS WOMAN “GO YOUR WAY AND SIN NO MORE. ” ENCOURAGERS DON’T SEE WHAT WE ARE. . . BUT WHAT WE COULD BE… SHOULD BE… AND NEED TO BE… IN CHRIST!

ENCOURAGERS GET EXCITED ABOUT THE PROGRESS & POTENTIAL OF OTHERS ACTS 19: 23 -26

ENCOURAGERS GET EXCITED ABOUT THE PROGRESS & POTENTIAL OF OTHERS ACTS 19: 23 -26 SO THEN THOSE WHO WERE SCATTERED BECAUSE OF THE PERSECUTION THAT OCCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH STEPHEN MADE THEIR WAY TO PHOENICIA AND CYPRUS AND ANTIOCH, SPEAKING THE WORD TO NO ONE EXCEPT TO JEWS ALONE. BUT THERE WERE SOME OF THEM, MEN OF CYPRUS AND CYRENE, WHO CAME TO ANTIOCH AND BEGAN SPEAKING TO THE GREEKS ALSO, PREACHING THE LORD JESUS. AND THE HAND OF THE LORD WAS WITH THEM, AND A LARGE NUMBER WHO BELIEVED TURNED TO THE LORD. THE NEWS ABOUT THEM REACHED THE EARS OF THE CHURCH AT JERUSALEM, AND THEY SENT BARNABAS OFF TO ANTIOCH. THEN WHEN HE ARRIVED AND WITNESSED THE GRACE OF GOD, HE REJOICED AND BEGAN TO ENCOURAGE THEM ALL WITH RESOLUTE HEART TO REMAIN TRUE TO THE LORD; FOR HE WAS A GOOD MAN, AND FULL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND OF FAITH. AND CONSIDERABLE NUMBERS WERE BROUGHT TO THE LORD. AND HE LEFT FOR TARSUS TO LOOK FOR SAUL; AND WHEN HE HAD FOUND HIM, HE BROUGHT HIM TO ANTIOCH. AND FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR THEY MET WITH THE CHURCH AND TAUGHT CONSIDERABLE NUMBERS; AND THE DISCIPLES WERE FIRST CALLEDCHRISTIANS IN ANTIOCH.

ENCOURAGERS GIVE OTHERS A SECOND CHANCE ACTS 15: 36 -41 AFTER SOME DAYS PAUL SAID TO BARNABAS, “LET US RETURN AND VISIT THE BRETHREN IN EVERY CITY IN WHICH WE PROCLAIMED THE LORD, AND SEE HOW THEY ARE. ” BARNABAS WANTED JOHN, CALLED MARK, ALONG WITH THEM ALSO. BUT PAUL WORD OF THE TO TAKE KEPT INSISTING THAT THEY SHOULD NOT TAKE HIM ALONG WHO HAD DESERTED THEM IN THE WORK. AND PAMPHYLIA AND HAD NOT GONE WITH THEM TO THERE OCCURRED SUCH A SHARP DISAGREEMENT THAT THEY SEPARATED FROM ONE ANOTHER, AND BARNABAS TOOK CYPRUS. BUT PAUL CHOSE MARK WITH HIM AND SAILED AWAY TO SILAS AND LEFT, BEING COMMITTED BY THE BRETHREN TO THE GRACE OF THE LORD. AND HE WAS TRAVELING THROUGH SYRIA AND CILICIA, STRENGTHENING THE CHURCHES. THE LORD IS NOT SLOW ABOUT HIS PROMISE, AS SOME COUNT SLOWNESS, BUT IS PATIENT TOWARD YOU, NOT WISHING FOR ANY TO PERISH BUT FOR ALL TO COME TO REPENTANCE.
