At Multitudes Church we believe Jesus Christ died for your sins, simply because He loved you. If you “believe on Him” and accept Him into your heart, you will have “everlasting life”. My job is to keep believing. His job is to give everlasting life. Come as you are
I Made It | Pastor Opie Swails
The wicked is in snared by the transgression of his lips, but the righteous will come through trouble.
The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. 25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
1 Peter 3:12
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
RIGHTEOUS - Being "right or just" in the EYES of GOD, and doing things GOD'S way!
But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name.
When you decide that you are going to live a "righteous" life, you ARE going to meet resistance and have trouble. WHEN THIS HAPPENS…..you've GOT to spread it!
THE DEVIL IS BANKING ON YOU NOT BEING RIGHTEOUS WHEN HE THREATENS YOU, THEREFORE SHUTTING YOU DOWN FROM SPREADING IT!
LIVING RIGHTEOUS will eventually get you into some kind of trouble, maybe. However, living RIGHTEOUS will ALWAYS allow you to come through trouble.
THE RIGHTEOUS BRO. WHO "CAME THROUGH" SOME TROUBLE
PETER & APOSTLES
JUST TO NAME A FEW
REMEMBER? The Kingdom is…. "RIGHTEOUSNESS" peace and joy in Holy Ghost!
LIVING RIGHTEOUS IS REALLY JUST A SIGN OF A KK (KINGDOM KID).
SOMEONE THAT IS SEEKING……THE VERY BEST YOU COULD EVER HAVE IN THIS LIFE…..LISTEN…….
And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink*, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
THIS. IS. WHAT. RIGHTEOUS. LIVING. LOOKS. LIKE. FOLKS!!!
Then their eyes were opened, and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.
They walked with Jesus.
They talked with Jesus.
They invited Jesus in.
They ate with Jesus.
Their eyes were opened, and they knew Jesus.
"We must have our eyes opened to the Kingdom of God so that we can open others eyes to the Kingdom of Heaven."
To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
"Many have opened their eyes to salvation but have yet to open them to the Spirit."
