Satan can never ever take any ground in your life that you do not give him. After all, Satan is not greater than our Lord. Satan can and must be dislodged from our life. In this message, we will look at the things (Ephesians 4:22-32) that Paul says gives place to the devil. This is a very important biblical message on spiritual warfare.
This is a story that Jesus told about a man who planted wheat in a field, an enemy came along while the farmer was asleep and sowed tares. In this story, the Lord unfolds the mystery of religious history. This passage will help us understand why everyone who calls themself a Christian is not a true believer.
There is a 'peace with God' that comes when we receive God's Son, Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior (Romans 5:1). After that, God longs for us to daily experience the 'peace of God' ruling in our hearts (Colossians 3:15). He left you that peace to experience when He died on the cross (John 14:27).
God loves us so much that He wants to give us various ways to get to know and love Him. One way is through various Old Testament types of people who followed and served God. Joseph in the Old Testament is a beautiful picture (type) of Jesus in the New Testament. Joseph portrays Jesus as the beloved Son, the suffering Servant, the exalted Sovereign, and the seeking Savior.
Joseph's life serves as a portrait of the Lord Jesus Christ. What a confirmation of both the inspiration of the word of God and the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. The life of Joseph is a wonderful testimony that God loves His Son so much that He wants to give us this portrait of Himself. To learn more, please visit us at www.ChurchFocusMinistries.com.
The shortest verse in the Bible is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:16, “Rejoice Evermore” The Bible does not tell us to rejoice in circumstances but the Bible says to rejoice in the Lord and because He never changes the Bible tells us to rejoice evermore. I want to talk to you today about how to have fullness of joy. Joy comes from the inside and God wants us to be a joyful people.
The most amazing time you will ever spend is the first 5 minutes after you die. Man is the only creature that knows he is going to die and yet he continually ties to forget that fact. No man is truly ready to live until he is no longer afraid to die. The real issue is not death but rather what happens after you die. Listen as Jesus pulls back the curtain to look beyond.
In the New Testament we have a much beloved section of Scripture that we call the fruit of the Spirit. Here we find a 9-fold cluster of attributes that ought to be displayed in our life when we are filled/controlled by the Holy Spirit. In this message, we consider the importantance of "faith" or faithfulness in the life of the Christian.
