In 1735, John and Charles Wesley went to America to teach the gospel to the American Indians in the colony of Georgia. In less two years, the "Holy Club" disbanded. John Wesley returned to England and met with a group of clergymen he respected. He said "they appeared to be of one heart, as well as of one judgment, resolved to be Bible-Christians at all events; and, wherever they were, to preach with all their might plain, old, Bible Christianity". The ministers retained their membership in the Church of England. Though not always emphasized or appreciated in the Anglican churches of their day, their teaching emphasized salvation by God's grace, apprehended through faith in Christ. Three teachings they saw as the foundation of Christian faith were:

People are all, by nature, "dead in sin," and, consequently, "children of wrath."
They are "justified by faith alone."
Faith produces inward and outward holiness.
Very quickly, these clergymen became popular, attracting large congregations. The nickname students had used against the Wesleys was revived; they and their followers became known as Methodists.[13]

When the Methodists in America were separated from the Church of England, John Wesley himself provided a revised version of The Book of Common Prayer called the Sunday Service of the Methodists in North America. Wesley's Sunday Service has shaped the official liturgies of the Methodists ever since.

Like other historic Christian churches, The United Methodist Church has official liturgies for services of Holy Communion, baptism, weddings, funerals, ordination, anointing of the sick and daily office prayer services. Some clergy offer healing services, while exorcism is an occasional practice by some clergy in The United Methodist Church in Africa.[84][85][86][87] These services involve the laying on of hands and anointing with oil.[88] Along with these, there are also special services for holy days such as All Saints Day, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil. These services are contained in The United Methodist Hymnal and The United Methodist Book of Worship (1992).[89] Many of these liturgies are derived from the Anglican tradition's Book of Common Prayer. In most cases, congregations also use other elements of liturgical worship, such as candles, vestments, paraments, banners, and liturgical art.

Mount Sinai
The Lord came from Sinai, and dawned from Seir upon us; he shone forth from Mount Paran, he came from the ten thousands of holy ones, with flaming fire at his right hand. - Deuteronomy 33:2
The area around Mount Sinai is the spot believed to be where Moses escaped from Egypt and lived for forty years with his father-in-law Jethro. Here God revealed himself in the burning bush and commissioned Moses to lead his people to freedom and to bring them to Mount Horeb in order to serve Him. Fifty days afer their departure from Egypt, they reached this sacred spot where Moses ascended to receive God's law

THE TERM SAVED OR UNSAVED is much deeper than many know. the once saved always saved is a fable,one can lose the gift. even though one falls does not mean all is lost, but to keep down will lead to spiritual death and the end result hell. when a change of the nature of man from the sin seed of Adam to the seed of Christ a new creature is born. now even if one turns the heart still will never be the same. an a more irratated state will there be because of the inner change. the sin nature will not return but salvation can be lost. this is the confusion, of the term once saved always saved. now seeking God for deliverence,is not always easy,actually the opposite,the more stress we have the harder it is to pray in the spirit. but just as Daniel, real deliverence must be 1st given to God,and tarrying until God sees your not giving up. God is Spirit and must be sought after in the spirit. He is not our personal genie in a bottle to be at our becken call. but if we be sincere and waver not,He is able and willing to be a deliverer no matter what stands in the way,and a mighty victory no less awaits ! faith is when we toss all thoughts of failure out and press God no matter what happens or what anyone says.. If we bind on earth it is bound in heaven,this is also true if we offer our mountain to God to move,and then take it back to attempt to fix it ourself ,because we are short on wait time. Those who wait on the Lord will be delivered.

14 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. (NOTICE that half of Jerusalem will be in captivity,because the other half is controled by the antichrist already,this is Zech 14;1---)

THE PRIESTS FOR THE TEMPLE
According to rabbinical tradition, even though the genealogical records of the Temple were lost and Jews were scattered throughout Gentile lands, those of the tribe of Levi were forbidden to alter their names (which connoted their priestly heritage) when assimilated into foreign cultures. Thus, we continue to this day to have Levis and Cohens and derivatives of those names. Recently, a more scientific test to verify those of priestly lineage has appeared. In studies of male Jews claiming descent from Aaron, it was found that they as a group uniquely carry an aberration of the Y chromosome. Because each person's DNA is as individual as a fingerprint, this characteristic linked these men together as a separate and identifiable group that must be traced back to an original ancestor.

The second part of Noah's oracle is a blessing on Shem or, as Noah actually puts it, on Shem's God. "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem" (v. 26). This is a great blessing because it is a new step in the Old Testament's unfolding messianic prophecies. The first messianic prophecy was in Genesis 3:15, in which a Deliverer was promised who should crush the serpent's head. It is evident as the story of Genesis unfolds that he will appear in the godly line of Seth rather than the ungodly line of Cain. Now, in a prophecy made following the Flood, the line of descent is narrowed to the Semitic peoples, who descended from Shem and whose story is particularly unfolded in the remainder of Genesis. In time the promise is narrowed still further to the house of David and to his descendants: Joseph (in the line of David's son Solomon) and Mary (in the line of David's son Nathan). The prophecy of blessing in Genesis is fulfilled in Jesus Christ.

Finally, there is a prophecy Japheth and his family. Two thing said of Japheth: first, God will extend territory (the name Japheth means "enlarge" so this is a play on words), second, he will live in the tents of Shem (v. 27). This latter promise is to be taken spiritually, meaning, not that the descendants of Japheth shall take Shem's territory, but that they enter into his spiritual blessing through association with the Semitic peoples. The descendants of Japheth have established the great nations of the world. America is in this line of descent. But our blessing does not come from extensive territory or wealth but our acquaintance with the God of Israel and our faith in Him who will yet sit upon the throne of His father David reign forever

From the sons of Noah, it was Japheth's descendants that eventually acquired the term "Gentiles".

The different islands, coastlines, mountains, valleys, and continents they spread to were divided initially by what language they spoke.

The allusions to, "divided in their lands", and "every one after his tongue", are clear indications that Genesis 10 was written after the Dispersion at the Tower of Babel.

The Japhethites were the thinkers of their time, and Japheth's descendants carried on that tradition through the ages.

Greek and Roman philosophers are unquestionably some of the most influential thinkers the world has ever seen.

Democracy was produced through that line of Japheth which established the Greeks.

Europe would later become one of the principle contributors to the growth and maturity of philosophy and science. Dissidents would eventually break from the European powers (Great Britian), and form the United States of America.

The descendants of Japheth, the oldest of the sons of Noah, have perhaps played more of a role in shaping our present day world than any of the other sons of Noah.

These are the descendants of Noah's sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. These three had sons after the flood.

The sons of Japheth - Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras - were the ancestors of the peoples who bear their names. The descendants of Gomer were the people of Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. The descendants of Javan were the people Elishah, Spain, Cyprus, and Rhodes; they were the ancestors of he people who live along the coast and on the islands. These are the descendants of Japheth, living in their different tribes and countries, each group speaking its own language.

The sons of Ham - Cush, Egypt, Libya, and Canaan - were the ancestors of the peoples who bear their names. The descendants of Cush were the people of Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The descendants of Raamah were the people of Sheba and Dedan. Cush had a son named Nimrod, who became the world's first great conqueror. By the Lord's help he was a great hunter, and that is why people say, "May the Lord make you as great a hunter as Nimrod!' At first his kingdom included Babylon, Erech, and Accad, all three of them in Babylonia. From that land he went to Assyria and built the cities of Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah, and Resen, which is between Nineveh and the great city of Calah.

The descendants of Egypt were the people of Lydia, Anam, Lehab, Naphtuh, Pathrus, Casluh, and of Crete, from whom the Philistines are descended.

Canaan's sons - Sidon, the oldest, and Heth - were the ancestors of the people who bear their names. Canaan was also the the ancestor of the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites, the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites, the Arvadite, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites. The different tribes of the Canaanites spread out, until the Canaanite borders reached from Sidon southward to Gerar near Gaza, and eastward to Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim near Lasha. These are the descendants of Ham, living in their different tribes and countries, each group speaking its own language.

Shem, the older brother of Japheth, was the ancestor of all the Hebrews. Shem's sons - Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram - were the ancestors of the of he people who bear their names. The descendants of Aram were the people of Uz, Hul, Gether, and Meshek.Arpachshad was the father of Shelah, who was the father of Eber. Eber had two sons: one was named Peleg, because during his time the people of the world were divided; and the other was named Joktan. The descendants of Joktan were the people of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, Obal, Abimael, Sheba, Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All of them were descended from Joktan. The land in which they lived extended from Mesha to Sephar in the eastern hill country. These are the descendants of Shem, living in their different tribes and countries, each group speaking its own language.

All these peoples are the descendants of Noah, nation by nation, according to their different lines of descent. After the flood all the nations of the earth were descended from the sons of Noah.
