Hear and obey

Deuteronomy 28:1
Blessings for Obedience
“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world.

This promise starts off with ‘if you fully obey,’ that means you are aware of Him and since we can’t obey until we know what He is saying, that means we can hear Him speak to us in a way that we can understand. For the new Christian, this is through the Bible and God’s anointed servants… Preachers and teachers.

We don’t have to know everything to enter into a covenant with the Lord. We have to obey what we know.

Today there are two commandments that we must obey: Continue reading

Growing?

John Maxwell:


Most people underestimate the unimportance of nearly everything in their lives. They get distracted. As a result, they put growth on the back burner, and if they do grow, it happens accidentally instead of intentionally. Take a look at your calendar for the next twelve months. How much time have you specifically scheduled for personal growth? If you’re like most people, your answer will be none. Or you may have planned to attend one event in the coming year. That’s not going to cut it. Rework your calendar so you have an appointment with yourself for personal growth every day, five days a week, fifty weeks a year.

You might be thinking, What?
I don’t have time for that! That’s probably true. Do it anyway. If you want to
succeed, you need to do whatever it takes. Get up an hour early. Stay up an hour later. Give up your lunch hour. Put in extra time on the weekends. If you don’t, you’ll have to prepare to give up your dreams and any hope of reaching your potential.

Rick Renner: Showing our Faith

Rick Renner

A person’s message on faith makes a powerful impact on me when I know this person has accomplished great things with his faith. He isn’t just speaking abstract theory — he’s speaking out of his own life experience.

Bennet: Generational Curses



Written by Barry Bennet

What is a Generational Curse?

How often have we heard Christians talking about the need to break generational curses?  Much of what has been taught on this subject borders on unbelief.  Believers that concentrate on curses do not understand the realities of the finished work of the cross.  People are not defeated in life due to being cursed as much as they are perishing due to their lack of knowledge of the Lord.

This is why Jesus said, “Go ye teaching” and did not say, “Go ye breaking curses.”  It is the Truth that sets us free, not some kind of mystical deliverance session. Continue reading

I Think My Granny is Getting Dressed for the Big Trip Back

 
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will BRING WITH HIM THOSE WHO SLEEP in Jesus. 
I Thes 4:13
~~
Six New Revelations by Dake Commentary
All who die in Jesus will be brought back from heaven to be given resurrected bodies (1Th. 4:14; Jn. 5:28-29 1Cor. 15:20-23,35-58 Php. 3:21). 
The living in Christ at this time will not die but be changed (1Th. 4: 15-17 1Cor. 15:51-58 2Cor. 5:1-10 Php. 3:21). 
This is the coming of the Lord in the air, not His coming to the earth (1Th. 4:15-17 2Th. 2:7, note; Rev. 4:1, note). 
The Lord Himself, not some other one, shall descend from heaven to translate the saints (1Th. 4:16; Jn. 14:1-3 1Cor. 15:23,51-58 Php. 3:21). 
The dead in Christ shall rise first before the living are changed (1Th. 4:16; 1Cor. 15:23,51-58 Php. 3:21; Jn. 5:28-29). 
The church and all in Christ from Abel to this time will be changed from mortality to immortality in body in a moment and will be caught up (raptured) with the dead in Christ to meet the Lord in the air (1Th. 4:17; Jn. 14:1-3 Lk. 21:36; 1Cor. 15:23,51-58 Php. 3:21; 2Cor. 5:1-10 Col. 3:4; 2Th. 2:7, note; Eph. 5:27). 1 Thessalonians 4:13
