In a world that intensely hates God and His Word, it all comes down to this.
Do you believe that God can do what He says he can do? Do you believe the miracles Jesus did in the Bible? Do you believe what it says in John 14:12-14:
"Truly, truly I say to you, he who believes in Me will do the works that I do also. And he will do greater works than these, because I am going to My Father. I will do whatever you ask in My name, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it."
Author and pastor Max Lucado recently shared his journey to understand more about the person of the Holy Spirit. Along the way, he not only grew in his relationship with God, but he also received a gift from the Holy Spirit—his prayer language.
"A significant gift came my way," Lucado said. "When I was 64 on a July morning, as I was praying, I began praying in tongues."
In an interview with Stetzer ChurchLeaders Podcast, Lucado explained how he had earnestly been seeking God for a few weeks, asking if there was anything He wanted to give him.
Have you ever read the passages in the Old Testament that describe God commanding the Israelites to wipe out entire cities of people including men, women and children? You might wonder why God would command for women and innocent children to be wiped out and murdered. Pastor Troy Brewer shared a message at OpenDoor Church about the Nephilim blood line and the war of two seeds.
When God delivered the Jewish people out of Egypt, He had a Promised Land ready and waiting for them. Because of their disobedience, they wandered in the desert for 40 years until the time of conquest came.
Brewer says, "Though they did not go into the Promised Land, they still did not get the luxury of not fighting giants. These are the people who refused to go into the promises of God because they didn't want to take on cities and giants. So, guess what God had them doing while they were out in the wilderness?" In fact, the Israelites went on to destroy 60 cities.
