The Son of God

The Testimony of God the Father is the Son of God.When the disciples returned after Jesus had sent them out to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and the cast out devils. He asked them two significant questions. One was, “Who do men say that I the Son of man am?” The other, “Who do you say that I Am?” The first they immediately answered, that the people thought that Jesus was a prophet like Jeremiah, John the Baptist or even Elijah. This showed how folks viewed of Jesus. Their knowledge of Him was limited to that of Old Testament prophetic ministry, and of course Jesus Christ is greater than a prophet.

You Are The Christ, The Son of God

Then He directed the second question directly to them, “Who do you say that I the Son of man am?” They knew who He was. But when He asked them pointedly, a holy hush fell where they had gathered. No one dared to utter His true identity, except Peter. I imagine as Peter broke the silence, standing up in their midst and boldly declaring, “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.”

Why was the answer to this question so imperative to Jesus? And why is it still vital today? Your answer to Christ’s question is more than a reply because you can only know it by revelation. When Peter confessed that He was the Christ. Jesus said, “Flesh and blood didn’t reveal it to you, but My Father in heaven did.” Did you know that everything hinges on us receiving revelation from the Father of who His Son is? Your revelation of Jesus determines your level of faith and your spiritual growth. This revelation will determine how you see everything in life, through the lens of who Christ is.

That is why there are spiritual religious forces trying to block, and even distort the Testimony God has of His Son. Paul said, “Had they known they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory.” But it’s too late for them, the Testimony of God is here. The Son of God is here, and all those that carry this testimony boldly declare Christ, not being fearful to lose their lives. Are you like that? Let’s preach the Testimony of God!

The Father’s testimony of His Son: “This is my beloved Son with whom I am well pleased, hear ye Him.”

The Written Word bears the testimony of God about the Son of God, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me” (John 5:39).

Holy Spirit bears the testimony of the Son of God.

“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me” (John 15:26).

And you too should declare God’s testimony of His Son with signs and wonders following.

Benefits of True Repentance to God

In a humanistic world where narcissism thrives repentance isn’t very popular. Pop psychology motivational sermons are teaching Christians to better themselves, without bringing them into a closer relationship with God. Addressing sinfulness and repenting from sin are being put on the back burner of Christianity because it’s not good for church growth in seeker-friendly circles. However, without repentance we cannot enter into God’s grace and Kingdom. Repentance of sins is the first step into living a life of faith in God.

God desires to fellowship with and dwell in man. That’s why every prophet and evangelist He has sent calls people to turn to God and away from their sins. Sin is what separates you from God almighty. Sin causes you to miss the purpose God has for your life. Anyone can sin, and therefore anyone needs repentance.

There was a time when God winked at sin, in his mercy He overlooked them. But now that time is long past. look at this Scripture:

“The times of this ignorance God overlooked, but now He commandeth all men everywhere to repent, because He hath appointed a Day in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that Man whom He hath ordained. Of this He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31).

Repentance Brings Blessings

Because God loves you and the world so much, he wants you to understand what things grieve Him and separate you from His presence. Repentance is the key that brings great blessings into your life.

In this podcast I want to challenge you with the benefits of repentance.

Being Full of the Holy Spirit

Being Full of the Holy SpiritEvery born again believer in the Book of Acts was full of the Holy Spirit. Today’s Christian pales in comparison to early Christians. Religion, materialism, and apathy have confined the saints within the four walls of the church. It’s time for you to breakthrough!

The Baptism in the Holy Ghost is for you. Today more than ever we are in desperate need of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Jesus knows there are many empty and leaky vessels sitting in the pews every Sunday morning. It’s His desire for every child of God to be completely full of the Holy Spirit. At the wedding at Cana, Jesus performed one of His first miracles. They ran out of wine. Just like many Christians and churches today, that run out of fresh anointing. The wine represents the fullness of the Holy Spirit. (John 2:1-11)

It’s a tragic situation when the Body of Christ has run out of the power of Holy Spirit. Something needs to change. The answer to that is, get filled with Holy Ghost and fire again.

There were six vessels present at this miracle at Cana, speaking of man because six is the number of man. The purpose these vessels were use for was purification, symbolizing sanctification. God is looking for vessels that sanctify themselves to be mightily used of the Holy Ghost. Jesus commanded the servants to fill the vessels with water, and in obedience they filled them up all-the-way-up to the brim — Completely full. As the Baptizer in the Holy Spirit and power, this is exactly what Jesus wants in your life and ministry, to fill your spirit-man all the way until you are completely full of His Spirit. Are you ready to be filled with the new wine?

Don’t misunderstand me, I am not speaking of getting drunk with wine, alcoholic beverages and other things. You were made to be full of the Holy Spirit — the new wine — so that Christ can use you in the work of the ministry.

“Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18 NLT).

Get filled, Stay filled, Carry the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

Through this podcast you’ll get filled, learn to stay filled, and how to carry the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

Restoring the Altar of God – Spirit of Elijah

Elijah came on the scene in a time when God’s people had broken their covenant with the LORD. The LORD God oftentimes will use an unknown to release the Word of the Lord to a nation to turn their hearts back to Him. God is a faithful and merciful God. He gives all of us a space and a time to repent. God is also long-suffering, that means He endures a lot of sin against Him from nations. He will give the world many opportunities to come to repentance. The nations of this world have had thousands of merciful opportunities to turn towards God in repentance. Time is running out.

Not only nations, but the people of God are also responsible to walk in God’s ways and truth.

The servants of the Lord are accountable to train and equip God’s people to serve Him. If the Church is not in its rightful place in culture and society then sin and wickedness will be pervasive in a nation. As result, the next generation to follow will not know God to worship Him.

Those who walk in the spirit and power of Elijah are concerned about the spiritual condition of a nation. God calls them to turn the tide and hearts back to God.

Elijah confronted Ahab, the king of Israel. He confronted the false priests and prophets of Jezebel that led the people astray. Elijah restored the altar of God again. This is what needs to happen in every nation. God has Elijahs in every nation, who love God and His Church. They are willing to risk their lives to restore our covenant with God and rebuild the altar of prayer to God in a nation again.

It begins in you, in your home, and in your church. Then we can take and change a nation.
