Stand

Now is a time for us, the church to stand and not sit down. Now is a time to step forward not backward. Now is the hour where we need to keep working whilst there is still light! The Lord is going to return some day and it might be sooner than later!!‬‬

Will we have to trust God in tough economy? Yes, will He get us through? Yes, He always leads us to triumph. Just be patient and endure👍

 

NEXT GENERATION: Listen up please, this is statement will go against the culture of today! But it must be given a place total elevation, meaning everything else comes under the Word of God.

If the bible says something, it’s true regardless of today’s culture. The interpretation is often needing help.

  1. Firstly stand on the Word of God. The Word is a reflection of Jesus, stand on His example how He lived?!

We believe that the following doctrinal viewpoints are foundational to the establishing of the church and should remain non-negotiable in the Christian walk.

The Bible

The Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26).

Hebrews‬ ‭1:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God,

So to know what the Father is like, look at the Son. To know what the Son looks like, look at the church? Right? Jesus is the perfect expresses image of God!!

  1. What does the Bible teach us?
  2. If you live it, you’ll end up looking like Jesus, 1 John 3:2

2. Stand in faith

    1. We need to be people who are quick to believe the Word of God!
    2. Stop your mind from wrestling against what it says, if it says something just believe it.
    3. The activation of the spirit led life is massively limited to the ability of the obedience of the disciple.
    4. John Lake said “I can act myself into believing faster than I can believe myself into acting”.
    5. No deadly thing shall harm me…don’t be unwise looking for it…but if it happened you quote that promise…and it’s ok to still see a doctor as well to confirm it.

Lay hands on the sick and they shall recover, you don’t actually have to lay hands either…social distancing rules.

3. Stand in Prayer

    1. When I was being challenged in my health, the Lord came to me and told me to read Psalms 91 which is known as the protective Psalm.
    2. It talks of a culture of living abiding closely to God where nothing can touch you.
    3. Stand in prayer

 

4. Stand together

Hebrews‬ ‭10:23-25‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”

    1. The sacraments God put in place are commanded for a reason, break bread and remember Him!
    2. Why walk alone when we can run together?!
    3. The only model Jesus left behind was church, which isn’t a building, it’s a people who come together centred around His name, His words and He is the talk of all our conversations.
  • Noah choose to stand for righteousness and spent 100yrs building something he had never seen before and it ended up being the saving vessel for him and his family. God had a plan, at the time Noah couldn’t see it.
  • Daniel choose to stand with God in the lions den when the laws commanded him not to prayer to his God. God delivered him
  • David choose to stand against the odds steering in the face of a giant and God delivered him into his hands
  • Esther steered in the face of rejection and not feeling she was good enough, but God had other plans for this young orphan girl! She became a major part of delivering the nation of God’s people from death!
  • Jonah, Ruth, Samual, Rehab, Solomon, Paul, Peter, you & me.

“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”
II Corinthians‬ ‭2:14‬ ‭NKJV

All Gods people are lead to triumph when we are in Christ!!
