The Cross Makes Us Powerful

We are going to be Acts chapter two this morning and starting a series called The Cross Changes Everything.  I want to start with a little illustration:   One day, a teacher was teaching her young class the story of Jesus visiting Mary and Martha. She carefully explained how Mary and Martha had hurried to clean the house and cook a special meal. Then she paused and asked, “What would you do if Jesus was going to visit your house today?”…

How to Forgive Yourself

Have you ever done something that hurt someone?  Something you were ashamed of?  Said or did something that was just a big piece of stupid?Of course you have!  And so have I. One benefit of being a Child of God is that when we receive Our Good Father’s love, it includes His forgiveness, which means we can choose to forgive ourselves.  In fact, we have no right to even hold our sins against us.

When We Agape OurSELF We Will Pursue the Impossible

Loving yourself means feeling and acting confident.  When you have experienced God’s agape love and it is transforming you it is producing a confidence that you have not experienced before.  David speaks like he is not just a Shepherd Boy EVEN THOUGH at this moment that is all he is. He has never been in battle and possibly never wielded a sword.  But self-confidence does not come from what you have done but it comes From WITHIN.   Self-Confidence born from…

What # Have You Set Your Belief Thermostat On?

“Our thoughts about God and how God sees us and loves us Determines the level of love we receive from God–not the amount of Love God has for us” (Pastor Les) It does not matter how powerful God is, how much love He wants to pour into your heart, if your Belief Thermostat is set on 62-degrees then it will never get warmer in your life.  You may even go around talking about God and how He heats up a…

Our Impossible Anointing

YOU ARE ANOINTED! Imagine a shadow of a preacher falling on someone and them being healed; a Handkerchief bringing healing over someone; a word going forth and the preacher never laying hands on or even seeing a person; Or someone in town, complete crazy, naked, and breaking off chains when he was put in them, being sent as a minister to his old town—to declare what God has done!! You and I are anointed.  Period.  End of discussion. Everything else…

Imagining the Impossible

“Now to Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us…” (Ephesians 3:20 NIV) It must be the power of Holy Spirit.  It is definitely not our own power.  It is not the power of Humanity that is working in us.  Each one of us believes that there is power working within us, correct?  But to what level do we believe there is power working within…

3 Barriers to Believing the Impossible is Possible

The main reason we do not see more miracles and more abundance in and through our lives is because we say we believe, yet we do not. How can we start believing that which we do not yet believe? #1  COMMIT Make a decision that God is good That scripture is truer than your experience To Scripture! #2  IMAGINE the new belief–Visualize it Ask God for imagery Visualize what you imagine In words, art, poetry, visuals of any kind Create…

The Impossibility of Continuing the Ministry of Jesus

Everything that you could not do, up until the point you did it, was impossible. Talking. Walking. Riding a bike. Reading. Almost everything that you will enjoy today, until it was done for the first time, was impossible. Radio. Movies. Telephones. Cars. Electricity. Computer. Yet, all the components were always there. All you needed to walk, talk, read and ride a bike were already embedded within you. It just had to be “discovered”. When you dream about doing something impossible,…

Everything Has Already Been Imparted to YOU!

Impartation:  A revelation of what is already there. Numbers 11: Last time I was here I spoke about when God took the Spirit and put it on 70-elders; which represents a generation; Moses represents 1–He was representing not his one but The ONE.  It wasn’t Moses imparting himself but God imparting Himself thru Moses Genesis:  “The Lord God formed man from the ground…”. God put His hands on Humanity.   God’s hand is UPON ME!   “…and He breathed…”. God was kindling…
