I'm still trying to digest everything that I learned, so I won't be posting on the messages anytime soon. But I know that they will all be available to listen to soon online at northeastvision.org.
On the last night we were supposed to hear from two preachers. But that's not what the Lord wanted. Instead we ended up having family prayer time, heard songs about family, and prayed over families. It was so moving. After we finished praying, Bro. Trieber preached on family from Jeremiah 14. The key verse was verse 3 "And their nobles have sent their little ones to the waters: they came to the pits, and found no water; they returned with their vessels empty; they were ashamed and confounded, and covered their heads."
The reason there was no water for the little ones was because of the drought. Well scripture tells us that a drought (or a dearth) is a judgement of the Lord. There was a drought because the people (God's people) relished in their iniquity and refused to hear the Word of God. The people weren't living holy lives. But holy living is what keeps water in the well! Yielding to the Spirit, obeying God, those things put (and keep) water in the well. So we as parents (or grandparents) need to be making sure that we do all that we can to keep the wells full so that our children and grandchildren will not have to suffer a drought at the judgement of God.
Talk about convicting! And that was just an hour or so out of the whole conference! There was an abundance of Biblical wisdom available and it was a real blessing. The people of Solid Rock Baptist Church in Berlin, NJ have a real love for the Lord that spilled out onto all of those that were in attendance and it was AWESOME!
Here are some pictures that really touched my heart from the last night.
