REV CHRIS IPPC 2016 QUOTES: 🌏 I see the gospel and the ministry of Christ in everything we do. It's absolutely impossible to be bitter against any...impossible to think you're in a quagmire. 🌏 Always live above circumstances. I look beyond circumstances. it's what the gospel makes out of you. It's what the Word produces in you. 🌏 Wey's Translation Philippians 4:19 "Do not think that I speak thus as having felt a pinch of want, No I have learnt in whatever condition I am to be independent of circumstances. I am schooled to bear the depths of Poverty, I am schooled to bear the prosperity....in life and all it's circumstances I have mastered the secret of living 🌍 Philippians 4:11-13 "Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. -- I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me". 🌎 God isn't expecting that we become Him. He's made us gods but only under Him. He's a person. Jesus is a person. The Holy Spirit is a person. You're not going to be neither of them. God in His oneness with us doesn't destroy our individuality. That's why he demands our obedience when giving His instructions. Otherwise we deserve no reward if He made us do everything because we had no choice. And you do have a choice and your choices aren't sometimes perfect because you don't know everything . 🌎 The oneness of God gives us perfection ....Jesus proved himself with his obedience and God gave him a place that is above others. 1 Samuel 16:1- 🌏 Man in his fallen state fears wickedness more than love. God defers to Samuel and tells him what to do.... Verse 7- Samuel looks on Eliab and chooses wrong. For God had said ...."anoint the one to whom I will show you". 🌎 Don't look at your outward appearance or of some other person. Sometimes we're looking at the outward appearance of things, ethnic location....none of these things appear to God. Acts 16:1-6; 7- They made effort to go into Bithynia but the Spirit permitted them not. Why were they making such an effort!? How much effort did they make before they realized that the Spirit didn't want them to go? Sometimes God resists you until you calm down and reduce your rigorous prayer of desire and hear that still small voice to know that it's God resisting you and not the devil. 🌍 Believing in the resurrection of Jesus Christ was very important for salvation. Understanding the essence of salvation was vital for salvation.There had to be a resurrection. Without a resurrection Christianity is nullified. The death of Jesus didn't give birth to the church. He died for the salvation and sins of the world. His resurrection gave birth to the World. You haven't preached the gospel until you preach the resurrection. This Jesus that God raised....You can only receive eternal life when you believe in the resurrection otherwise you're dead and cannot have eternal life. Act on the Word! 🌍 Romans 10:8- - The Word of Salvation - The Word of His Grace - The Word of Faith - The Word of Hearing....that it is the spoken word and you got to hear it; Faith comes by hearing. Romans 10:9-10 Romans 1:16-17 Acts 14:7 🌎 There's something about our message, it's the power of the Holy Ghost, something in our words!! Mark 16:17-20 "These signs shall follow the "believing Ones" Any time something tries to fasten itself on you ....say No you have no power over me...Live the Word! 🌎Galatians 4:1- Nepios....is a child who hasn't been taught to talk right. Christian maturity is in your tongue. Christians who are living the life of servants aren't living the life of an heir. Though he be Lord of all....no matter what he thinks as long he's a child who has not been taught to talk, he differs not from a servant.... 🌎1 Corinthians 3:1-3 Very enlightening and informative....What's he telling us? Strife...train yourself to never walk in anger, bitterness, envy and jealousy. Be higher than that. Train yourself. 🌏 Get yourself in the Word, live in the Word. Never carry the load of "someone said something against you". When you think big about yourself that's when you start getting offended at what others do against you. Humility is the way to increased grace. One of the signs of humility is that even though anyone says anything against you, you don't care. Live for the master. Who are they anyway? God is the only one that knows your true value....don't worry about someone who thinks you're nothing". 🌎 Learning to take a little heat....say I can take, put up with and withstand anything . 🌎1 Corinthians 3:3 Amplified We are all not human beings but partakers of the divine nature. You are a new creation. The more you confess you're a human being the more human you'll be....the more you confess you're divine the more divine you will be. This is what Christ died for. 🌎 1 Corinthians 1:30 I walk in Wisdom. Christ is my sanctifier, my riddance ( meaning I can't be trapped; he rids me of every trouble; he plucks me out). Christ is my wisdom and my righteousness.... 🌎 I am a child of Word! Choose the way of the Spirit. To walk in the Spirit is natural with me, it would take efforts to walk in the flesh. I put the Word of God to work in my life. I establish the Word in my life.
