Be Happy While You Wait

Be Happy While You Wait

Prayer

God reward those who draw near, who seek Him. You don’t need to find and understand everything. But if you honestly seek the Lord, there is a reward for you, no matter what your feelings or thoughts are informing you. Seek the Lord.

Saul's Leadership vs David's Leadership

Saul's Leadership vs David's Leadership

Prayer

 We can see in the life of Saul and David two types of leadership or ministry. If you still live under a Saul-style ministry you will hear all the time that it all depends on how you behave. They say that God is for us, but then they add, “Are you on God’s side?” If the Christian life depends entirely on us, then we are destined to fail, but our victory is given us for free, this has much more glory.

Understanding Grace

Understanding Grace

Prayer

When a person has the revelation of God’s grace is when God’s favor floods in his heart, sure signs, or evidence will be visible in his life. No one can have an encounter with grace and remain the same.

Prayer as a Warrior

Prayer as a Warrior

Prayer

The Lord has blessed us with all sorts of spiritual blessings! In Christ, you have everything you need. You have eternal life in your spirit, all the promises of God written in the Bible, the Holy Spirit dwelling in you and His fruit, that is, love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, meekness, faithfulness and dominion. However, once you have become a child of God, you also gained an enemy. He now pays special attention to you. Welcome to spiritual warfare!

God Hears The Righteous

God Hears The Righteous

Prayer

How can we be sure that our prayers will always be heard and answered by God? You must surely have heard that God only hears the prayers of the righteous. People are always looking for someone closer to God to pray for them.

 Open doors are a sign of favor. For this church in Philadelphia, the Lord said that He opened a door that no one can shut (Revelation 3:8). Jesus has the key of David, and which we also receive, in Christ.

The secret to a fruitful and blessed Christian life is “answered prayer.” This kind of prayer makes the difference between a victorious Christian and the one who lives defeated, between an influential and fruitful ministry and a mediocre ministry.

Overcoming Sin

Overcoming Sin

Reing in Life

“How can we who died to sin still live in it?” We were identified with Christ in His death and resurrection by baptism. God does not want just forgiven sinners, but children with His nature.

Sinner or Righteous?

Sinner or Righteous?

The New Covenant

The truth of the New Testament is that we no longer are sinners, but we are made righteous through the work of the Lord Jesus on the cross.

“How am I righteous if I still sin? How can I no longer be a sinner and still sin?”

Justification by Faith

Justification by Faith

The New Covenant

“Justification” is a legal term borrowed from the court system, is the opposite of being “condemned.” “To condemn” is to declare a person guilty; “To justify” is to declare that person without guilt, innocence or righteous.

The Confrontation of Two Covenants

The Confrontation of Two Covenants

 In addition to the perception of the Holy Spirit’s direction in our spirit, we still need to consider some outward signs given by God. The Holy Spirit always speaks to us, but this speech will never contradict, for example, what is written in Scripture.

A life by faith is lived in the supernatural. God does not lead us from our 5 senses. Actually, if you rely on your natural senses, you will probably be guided by the devil.

We are called to try to make right something that we have wronged. It is relational repair work. It’s time to go back and try to repair some of the damage that others have done to us, and we have done to others.

“One another” is two words in English, but it’s only one word in Greek: ἀλλήλων (ah-LAY-loan). It’s used 100 times in 94 New Testament verses. 47 of those verses give instructions to the church, and 60% of those instructions come from Paul. Learn what it means to walk with one another.

For the past weeks, we have been speaking about Spiritual Parenthood. We have been learning how the need for spiritual fathers is so imperative. There is a longing for spiritual fathers.

Growing from a spiritual baby into a spiritual parent is crucial to God’s divine purpose. Our destiny is Maturity, the state when we become more responsible for others and less concern for ourselves.

Purpose Driven Parenthood

Purpose Driven Parenthood

The Cry For Spiritual Fathers

These are the same principles that I want to share with you today. You will see many other men of God throughout all the Word practicing them. You see these principles in the old and new testament, and throughout all Church history. We could speak of David, Elisha, Moses, Paul. But I believe that Jesus is the best example for any basis. Jesus is the most impacting model of fathering, ministry, and life there is.

Your spiritual life will be active and meaningful as much the relational ties in the church are real. Deep down inside, there is a longing to be mothered or fathered. God has created us with a need to feel connected in relationships, but a painful lack of nurturing, support and interaction in the Church has created a void.

We are defining what the gospel is. In the pursuit of a summarized form to expose the essence of the message of God, we came with four pillars that are: There is a God. There is the problem of mankind sin. There is a redeemer, Jesus. There is a question, “Do you believe?”

Expectations

Expectations

Transformation of the Soul

I know hope works on a two-way road. It cheers us up with the expectation of good things, but also with the risk to disappoint us since it might not work as we expected. But here it’s a secret: the healthy hope lies always in God. Anyone that places their hope in someone will be injured and harmed. Now, let’s grow in our relationship with God as much as we grow any other relationship.
