Welcome
Pastoral Care Counseling focused on love extended to all since creation.
 
Welcome to Mercy Seat

Exodus 37.6 God made a mercy seat (propitiatory" - specifically an atoning sacrifice, Jesus, 1 Jn 4.10).

 

CHRIST HAS COME, CHRIST HAS DIED AND CHRIST WILL COME AGAIN.  He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

The LOGO PICTURE shown is a drawing by Rev. Sylvia Bell incorporating the concept of the Mercy Seat and the cross.  Exodus 37:6 NISB, (6) "He made a MERCY SEAT (propitiatory - specifically an atoning sacrifice) of pure gold, two and a half cubits (the length of the forearm from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger usually 18 inches/46 centimeters) long and one and a half cubits wide. (7) He made two cherubim (angels - from the lowest to highest rank as follows: angels, archangels, principalities, powers, virtues, dominions, thrones, cherubim, and seraphim) of gold; he made them of hammered work at the two ends of the MERCY SEAT; (8) one cherub at the one end and one cherub at the other end; he made the cherubim of one piece with the MERCY SEAT at the two ends. (9) The cherubim had their wings spread upward, covering the MERCY SEAT with their wings, with their faces toward each other; the faces of the cherubim were toward the MERCY SEAT and John 1 4. 10." 

In MERCY SEAT'S logo, I have placed the cross on the MERCY SEAT symbolizing Jesus Christ, our atonement with seven (7) rays of light emanating from the cross. 

 

I invite your comments and will post new comments in a week - bellsylvia.mercyseat@gmail.com  

"'And this is the judgment" (the critical moment), 'that the light is come into the world, and we loved the darkness rather than the light.'" (John 3:19)  

Let us pray

 

Lord, sometimes we are prideful.

-Forgive us when we let our pride get in the way failing to be respectful of others.

-Forgive us when we seek to increase our self esteem at the price of others.

-Forgive us when we fail to hold others in high esteem as we do You.

-We may get prideful about our achievements.

-We may be prideful of our associations by birth.

-We may be prideful of our relationship with very successful people: being in their inner circle.

-May we take pride in being created in the Image of God.

-Our greatest source of pride should be knowing that we are called Your Children through our association with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

-Our association with Your Son causes us to love and care for one another which is stewardship commanded us to do from the very beginning of creation.

-We may take pride in the fact that someone loves and cherishes us above all others.

-We take pride in who You created us to be.

-May we realize that It Is You Who has enable us to have the pride that we have, and again, forgive us when we fail to give the honor and glory to You.

We pray in Jesus Name by the Power of the Holy Spirit. Amen

 

Genesis 1.26 “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the seas, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’”

 

Probers 16.18 “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”

 

Galatians 6.14 “May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”

 

Love and blessings.

Continue to pray for one another.

Sylvia

Our Mission

Our Vision

Mercy Pastoral Care Counseling was birth from a statement made reference counseling services Chaplain Elder Reverend Bell was alleged to have given to two individuals as their pastor.  She had knowledge of both individuals, but had never counseled either in any way other than perhaps their attendance in a worship service.  From these speculations, she realized a deep desire and need in the community of faith. Mercy Seat Church and Pastoral Care Counseling was conceived by counseling that took place by the Grace of God without hands on office intervention.

There are many seeking a deeper relationship with our Creator, God or a Higher Power.  They need someone who is willing to listen and provide an honest informed response.  In that respect, as MERCY SEAT counselor, We seek to enlighten, as well as, promote healing and healthy living. 

Our Goals

Mercy Pastoral Care Counseling through the leading of the Holy Spirit desires to extend the liberty of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as set forth in scriptures, theology, experiences and doctrine.  We do not seek to present a one sided dialogue but an all inclusive dialogue spanning creation - past, present and future.  This dialogue which is available to all comes through communion with Creator, God or a Higher Power through the revelation.

 

Mercy Seat began meeting in Rev. Sylvia Bell's home on October 10, 2010.
