DAY 3 MORNING SESSION - PASTOR CHRIS The book of Acts gives you insight into the ministry of the apostles ... the book is not concluded, it just stops... because the rest of us are writing the continuously acts of the book. Hallelujah If you truly have the gospel in your heart it is impossible for you to have a blue day, have bitterness, to be frustrated, to think that you are in a quagmire. I live above circumstanpces... glory to God. I live beyond circumstances. It is what the word makes out of you Phil 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want... for I have leant in whatever state I am to be content Ways translation - not think that I peak thus as halving felt the pinch of want ... I have learnt to be independent of want. I am schooled to bear... in all circumstances I have mastered the secret of living Do not dwell on your past mistakes. You see God is not expecting that we become him, he is God and made us gods... Sometimes your choices are not perfect because you don't know everything... You can walk in perfection, Jesus walked in perfection not because he was God but because he chose to... he had a will of his own 1Sam 16:1-6 1. Samuel was more afraid of Saul than God *Man in his fallen state fears wickedness more than Love. 6 He looked at Eliab and said surely this must be the anointed of the Lord- HE WAS WRONG Don't look at the outward appearance e.g. condition, parentage, nationality etc Acts 16:1- 7 they tried to go into Bithynia but the Holy Ghost permitted them not to Sometimes God resists you from taking a particular course of action until you calm down in prayer and hear God... then you'd know it was not the devil but God On thoughts - John 20:25 - Thomas said except I see, I will not believe 26-6Then came Jesus and said reach into my side.. because thou had seen me... Blessed are they that have not seen but believed... not more blessed it is of faith Luke 24:1- @ the sepulchre... 5 why seek the living amongst the dead. He is not here but is risen... and they 24: 10- 11. The 11 believed them not John 20:1- Mary Magdalene and Jesus' disciples at the Sepulchre 8. He saw and believe. After this we saw Jesus talking too Mark 16:12-Jesus appears to his disciples and they told to others neither believed they not, afterwards he appeared to the 11 and upbraided them for their unbelieve I have thought about it many times what was it about those disciples... if they had known that they were working with God, what would they have asked of him, what would they have done? If you relate with God through your intellect you cannot know God Believing in the resurrection of Christ was very important to salvation, it was the key to understanding the Christian life, without the resurrection Christianity is nullified. Remember that the death of Jesus was for the sons of the world, not the Church. You cannot believe in salvation until you have believed in the resurrection of Christ. You can only receive eternal life when you believe in the resurrection Romans 10:8- the word is neigh thee, even the word of faith 9. and that God had raised him from the dead The power is in the gospel Romans 1:16-17 there in is the righteousness of God revealed Acts 14:7-10 there the preached the gospel and healed the crippled Mark 16:16-20 these signs shall follow the believing one ... in my name shall they ... Any time you feel stomach ache don't think what did I eat or drink... it shall not have any power over me And they went every where preaching the gospel... gloryyyyyyy 20. The Amen there means it is not a story... so be it... it shall be so How many of you have raised or been involved in raising a child? Did you teach the child to talk right? Yes. That is the problem in the Church, many are not being taught how to speak and so the ruin their lives Gal 4:1-2 the heir as long as he is a child/nepios who has not been taught to talk right is a servant but is kept under a tutor 1Cor 3:1- 3 fed you will then milk and not meat because you are not able to beat it... only children are fed with milk.. Train yourself to never walk in anger, jealousy, strife... you are higher than that... Stay in the word, stay with the word... Humility is the way to increase - Remember one of the signs of humility is not to care when someone does something against you... Develop yourself, don't stay where you have been, a little tweak can lead to great improvements 1Cor 3:3 Amp live above the human standard, not like mere unregenerated men... you rare a partaker of the divine nature... In the spirit we are not seen as human beings, not after the Adam of genesis but the glorified Christ The more you confess that you are human being, the more human you will be, the more you confess that you are divine the more divine you will be... Walk in the spirit..
