But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us. (Romans Chapter 5, Verse 8, Amplified Classic Edition of the Bible)
The Lord endeavors to lead His creation away from evil and captivity and into a better place in relationship with Him. Out of the Kingdom of Darkness and into the Kingdom of His Beloved Son, Jesus (Colossians 1:13).
He led His chosen children of Israel in the pillar of cloud and fire day and night. His Spirit led His Only Begotten Son into the wilderness to be tried and tested by the devil for forty days and nights. His Spirit led the men to capture the Word of God for us to absorb and obey down the centuries and to this day. His goodness leads us to repentance.
However we all have a free will to choose. Are we obediently following His cloud by day and fire by night or are we on our own path that seems right to us that is away and distant to God, void of a relationship and salvation?
What about the day to day leading of the Holy Spirit? Are we sensitive to the things of the Spirit? Are we following His cloud and fire?
Focusing on Numbers chapter 20 this week and the incident at the Rock with Moses, Aaron and the Assembly of the Children of Israel. How important it is to be obedient to the Lord’s commandments, and be led by His voice within our conscience.
Speaker Pastor Catrice and her testimonial and experience of getting to know God, again and again. How you see God can affect how you see God. Never give up your pursuit of getting to know God and forming and deepening your relationship with Him. Once you have breakthrough you will never go back.
The importance of setting our minds and keeping them set on what is above, and not on the earth. How it is critical for believers to kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desires that lurk in our members.
Since eternal life is defined by John in John 17:3 as the need to know God the Father and His Son Jesus, we identify some of the blockages that can stifle us in walking in a deeper relationship with the Lord.
One of the key verses for the believer, now a new creation in Christ, is found in 2 Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
How do we keep the old that has passed away from becoming resurrected?
