Faith to Receive- Here’s How 10-7-18
‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.(the anointing) In those days I will pour out my Spirit on those who are serving me
But YOU will receive power (the anointing) when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
In the last days I will pour out my spirit (Anointing)
Fresh infilling of Holy Spirit
Turn to someone and say
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SPIRITUAL
“On earth as it is in heaven”
We first breakthrough in the spiritual real
Then we see it in the physical realm
We continue: Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit
The key to seeing breakthrough in your life- The Gifts of the Holy Spirit
Many Christians have an understanding of 2 persons in the Trinity
Son of God
Came to die for us
Gave us eternal life
But Holy Spirit?
The connection between us and God
Allows us to move in the power of Jesus
He’s “Jesus without boundaries”
Our focus has been on:
We looked at
- Moving in the Miraculous
- Gift of Faith
We continuing in our study of the
Areas of Healing
- Relationships (marriages, families, friendships)
- Spiritual (results of enemy’s involvement)
- Not restricted to humans
The Lord’s first instruction to His disciples was “heal the sick”
These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: … 7 As you go, preach this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven is near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.
Immediately after Pentecost we see believers
- healing the sick
- raising the dead
- casting out evil spirits
We’ve looked at: Ingredients of Healing (What releases the Power of God)
We looked at: Posturing for Healing (How to receive your healing)
Important …I said
You have to believe
God To You
In order to see
God Through You
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
Everything is possible for those who only believe
I want us to examine: How to Step Into Healing Releasing Faith (How to receive healing)
Let’s begin with
Reasons why people fail to move in the healing anointing
- Unaware that God still heals today
- Unaware of our position as Christians
- Unbelief – doubt, skepticism
- Unworthiness – to be used by God
- Fear – failure, rejection, make a mistake
- Lack of anointing- only selected people, must be totally healthy to pray, disruptive issues
- Lack of knowledge
- Lack of faith
- Failure to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit (discernment)
Let’s look at: How to step into“healing releasing faith”
- Present yourself to the Lord
Enter into His presence
Proclaim His Lordship -Focus
