First of all l would like to start out by saying this. If Christ be anything He must be everything! For if He isn't, how can Scriptures such as Philippians 4:13 come to fruition, "For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength." How can this power be attained without Christ being your everything? I have learned an important lesson which has helped me into attaining this power that takes on serpents and scorpions and all the power of the enemy and gives us the victory. Praise God! This power comes to us by meditating God's Word and understanding the power Jesus gives us. For in pondering over God's Word I find that I give my spirit total access to the power and Wisdom of God, Who is happens to be our Lord Jesus Christ (1Corinthians 1:24). In return He has moved me towards what God has willed for my life, forging all my circumstances to fall in line with what He has planned for me. Now I have the power to have complete control of my inner attitudes and so that they do not reflect my outward circumstances. Thus I can continue in the Joy of the Lord no matter what the circumstance. For if He is anything in me, He is everything in me. For Jesus abides in me and for that reason I do not get discouraged about any unpleasant circumstances nor do I take unimportant events too seriously. I am joyful because I can now look at my life with the perspective that the ultimate joy comes from Christ abiding in me and me in Him. I believe with all my heart that He Who lives in me will fulfill His final purposes for me. Amen!
Only Believe!! It is that simple, the Word of God is so simple except that legalistic traditionalists love to confuse you with what they conform to. Today allow your mind to be transformed by it being renewed with the Word of God!
I Am Who I Am because I AM says I Am
Everything that I have read in Gods Word has brought me to the conclusion that I have the authority, power and anointing to go and disciple all nations. Jesus told me, "you will do these things I have done and far greater." So lets move on to greater things.
Matthew 16:16 NLT Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
What is a Church? Is it Rules and Bylaws? Denominational affiliation?
Jesus didn't build a building and endow a fund or start a denomination.
He invited people to know Him. Peter saw this, that is why He confessed that Jesus was
"The Messiah, The Son of The Living God."
It is a confession-the confident belief in Jesus as Lord-that is the foundation for the Church Jesus seeks to build.
Christian maturity means many things, but it starts and continues with a God-inspired declaration of Christ as Savior.
Make sure you, your family, and Church stay Christ centered as you live and articulate your beliefs.
