The church is a living organism. It is the most powerful, eternal body that Jesus died to redeem.
This world is going on in a way that God never meant it to go. Why did God allow evil in this world?
It is because God didn't want to create robots. He gave us free choice. If we were all robots, it would be a beautiful world, but it would be very cold. There would be no love.
The thing about free choice is that you can't take away the negative consequences.
If you choose to put your hand in the fire, you will get burnt.
When the Lord is in charge, this world will become paradise on earth. The wolf will lie down with the lamb.
The children will play at the serpent's nest and not be hurt.
The gift of the working of miracles is one of the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit. It is the working of any miracle that is not healing.
When the gift of the working of miracles happens, you will have the faith in you to do it - you will just know that you KNOW that you know.
Romans 7:4-5 - Nothing can be more final than dead. Dead means you're incapable of responding to the Law.
The Book of Romans is the magna carta of what the gospel is. It deals with justification by faith.
Only when you're dead to the Law and married to Jesus, then only can you bear fruit to God.
When you're under the Law, the sinful passions in you are aroused by the Law.
When you see an outbreak of sin, it usually happens in people who think they can keep the Law.
The more they try, the more the Law proves that they cannot keep the Law.
The flesh is never more subtle than when it is religious.
The strength of sin is the Law. The spring of holiness is grace.
“Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God. For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.” (Romans 7:4-5 NKJV)
On the day that God gave the Law on Mount Sinai, 3000 people died. The Feast on that day was the first Pentecost.
On the day of Pentecost that the Holy Spirit came, 3000 people were saved. The letter kills but the Spirit gives life.
Romans 8:2 - Chronic tiredness is sickness begun, and sickness is death begun.
We have been set free from the Law of sin and death. Keep declaring this and you will see yourself being set free from tired, sickness and death.
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:2 NKJV)
