July 27: Faith Works By Love

This week we begin a new series entitled “Walking in Love”

The Love Walk is the Highest calling in the believer’s life. WE are told to: “Imitate Christ, as dear children imitate their Father.” in Ephesians.  Jesus himself said that the only ‘other’ commandment he was leaving was to: “Love One Another, as I have Loved you. ” and “By this shall All Men Know that you are my disciples. Because, you love one another.”

In recent weeks we have looked at Healing, Faith, Miracles and a whole manner of those aspects of life that identify the disciples of Jesus. But, without Love, the AGAPE, God kind, or quality of LOVE all of these other things fail and fade into nothing. Without Love we cannot fulfil The Law and The Prophets. But, with AGAPE  Jesus sid we: “fulfil ALL The Law and The Prophets.”

We learn about Faith being the ONLY way to be able to please God (Heb 11:6). But without Love, our Faith cannot prevail. By taking time and comprehensively studying 1Cor 13: 4-8 and 13 we find a very clear picture of how LOVE manifests Himself in Our lies

We are reminded that the LOVE of God is poured into pour heart by the Holy Spirit who lives and abides within us. However, he will
not act against our will and so, we must bring our bodies under subjection to the will of God through the Holy Spirit in Our Lives. We must always remember that the Fruit of the Spirit is not for ourselves. But, instead, the fruit is for others to taste, to eat and to enjoy.

As the Fruit of the LOVE of God develops in our lives our own selfish desires take a back seat and a life of selfless giving emerges to draw others to the LOVE that God has for them.

Over the coming weeks we will look at What LOVE is, how it manifests itself and more importantly How We can allow it to manifest HIMSELF in our lives; for God is LOVE.

July 20: Looking To The Miraculous

The Church Fails the “Drive-thru” Test

In the modern Western world of Fast Food, Fast Entertainment, Instant Marriages and Instant Makeovers the church fails to meet the ever-growing and insatiable craving of Christians to want everything from God right NOW.

Sadly, when it doesn’t come right away they are left believing that prayer doesn’t work; that healing isn’t for today; God must not want them to be healed and a myriad other answers to satisfy their sense of disappointment.

This can lead to anger at God for letting them down. Or, to providing an avenue of entry for wrong thinking and wrong teaching that would suggest that God wants to teach you something by ‘making’ you sick. Even worse, that God is the author of your sickness.

The truth is that God is not in the party trick, or the side show business. He isn’t into providing cheap thrills, or performing at our whim.

Yet, we are asked to believe that God, who demonstrated his perfect will through Jesus, is the same today as he was back then. The bible indicates that the realm of the miraculous is available in the here and now. Otherwise, there would be grounds to believe that God is not as great as we have been led to believe.

One of the major problems, I believe, is that we, as Christians, have a badly skewed concept of what a miracle actually is. Through common usage we have come to believe that any healing that is miraculous is an instantaneous healing.

We hear stories of Evangelists, in countries like Africa and in other similar parts of the world, conducting great tent meetings where hundreds of people receive their healing instantaneously; the blind see; the deaf hear and the lame and crippled are made able to walk again.

Yet, signs and wonders, like these are few and far between in western society. Why is that?

What is it about the miraculous that is so important to us?

Why do we have this idea that every healing that Jesus performed was instantaneous?

There must be more to this subject than meets our first glance.

This important message looks at these questions and provides answers that may have never entered your thinking on this subject before.

As the church of Jesus Christ the miraculous is the realm we are called to both live and walk in; all the time. But, if we don’t have a clearer picture of what that is supposed to be like we may be experiencing failure when we could be, and should be rejoicing in the Victory that overcomes the World; Our Faith.

July 13: Your Healing Is In Your Mouth

Our confession rules us:

“The man who says he can and the man who says he can’t are both right!” I first heard this quoted by Zig Ziglar. However, it comes from Confucious himself.

This principle is however, completely scriptural. Throughout the Old and New Testaments we are informed that the words of our mouths can have either the consequence of blessing, or cursing. We have the ability to affect how we react, or respond to, or help to shape, the world around us.

Through a good report Joshua and Caleb eventually entered the promised land. But the other 10 men who had gone to spy out the land with them, by their own confession, determined their fate with an evil report.

A couple of weeks ago we looked at the woman with the issue of blood and the fact that she came to Jesus speaking her faith about what she expected to happen. The Roman centurion that came to Jesus recognised his authority to speak a command and it be fulfilled and in both cases Jesus response was that their faith, evident by what they had said, had enabled them to receive.Life

There are 3 principles we need to remember to receive our healing. Or, for that matter to keep our healing. We must remember that Jesus was and is the embodiment of the Will of God and we are given his Modus Operandai in Acts 10:38 where we are reminded that God’s Will is Healing and Health.

The three principles are:

1 We need to Study God’s Will for Our Lives. 2Tim 2 :15

2 We need to Speak God’s Will over Our lives. Heb 10:23

3 We need to Walk in God’s Will for Our Lives Jam 1:22

As you listen to this essential message make sure that you have your own bible handy and note these verses in and before your own eyes.

Additionally, if you can find a way to get ahold of a copy of “God’s Medicine” a very powerful little mini book by brother Kenneth E Hagin that includes a section on the GM1kind of confession/profession of Faith that you need to be making over your life.

This and other books will soon be available from our online bookstore. However, there may be a simpler way for you to be able to get ahold of it where you are.
