Healed Spirit, Soul and Body- Podcast 304
We read in Psalm 103 verses 2 to 4 that we should always praise the Lord lovingly, for all His daily blessings upon us. He pardons us from all our sins so that we do not have to fret or fume about wrong thoughts, speech or actions from our present or even our past situations or circumstances. We are completely healed because He heals our spirit, our soul and our body. It is a simple but remarkable result of our repentance and His forgiveness that allows His mercy and compassion to flow to us. All our diseases, physical or mental, can be healed. This means not just some but all. Our very life is redeemed from lack and disease and from eternal damnation in hell.
Keep On Being Filled - Podcast 303
The human body requires consistent drinking of water if it is to remain healthy. The brain needs consistent thinking through and gaining solutions to every day problems to remain highly functional. The spirit of a person also requires stimulation in order for a person's interest to be fostered by listening to what the Holy Spirit is telling us. When the spirit of a person is reborn from above it is filled with the wonder of the Holy Spirit. To keep charged with the desire to fulfil God's will and purposes it very much needs a constant infilling of the anointing and empowering of God, based on His word.
Don't Be Stubborn - Podcast 302
A stubborn attitude towards God and His word, the Holy Bible, is a very dangerous stand to take. Those who keep pursuing this rebellious pathway and never repent, become like Pharaoh of ancient Egypt. We read from Exodus chapter 13 verse 15 that Pharaoh the king of Egypt, became stubborn and would not let the children of Israel, leave the land of Goshen. God allowed all the first born males of man and beast, in Egypt, to be killed. God had told Pharaoh through Moses, to let His people go. Pharaoh, however, hardened his heart and would not let God's people go. The result for Egypt was disastrous. Every person who is not born again must realise their own disastrous position, today. It is imperative that everyone repents of their sin and accepts Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and are thereby able to inherit eternal life. Everyone who is stubborn and won't repent, will be damned and go to eternal hell.
Clothed in His Righteousness - Podcast 301
Every born again Christian is an eternal saint of the Lord. A saint is a human being that has been saved and has been sorry for their sins and has repented of them. God has forgiven them and their sins have been washed away through Christ's blood shed on the Cross, at Calvary. As a result the Holy Spirit has renewed their spirit or inner person and in the name of Jesus Christ and to the honour and glory of the Father, they have been granted everlasting life, from that time onwards. Throughout their life on earth they may make serious mistakes or have even wilfully sinned but whenever they repent they are restored to full fellowship rights, with the Father because of Jesus' sacrifice, on their behalf. It is important that every Christian truly repents of their sins and endeavours to live a sanctified life and not to keep on, habitually sinning, as a way of life.
Stand in the Gap - Podcast 300
When we board a train in London or Perth, and most likely other cities as well an announcement is made to mind the gap. For all mature Christians it is very important that they are involved in intercessory prayer. What do you mean? I mean prayer where the Holy Spirit lays a burden upon your spirit to intercede on behalf of another person or situation, that you may know about. It may be for a marriage partner or a child or children in your family. This burden could be also for another family, for a church, for a work mate or even for the government or your own city or country. You will have a deep groaning in your spirit to pray unceasingly for the person or situation involved. A burden from the Lord will keep you standing in the gap, in intercessory prayer, until the victory is won.
It Is Already Finished - redone with sound - Podcast 298
What is already finished ? Satan's complete domination over most of mankind lasted for about four thousand years. His power and the power of his marauding host of demons was brought to a crushing end about April, 30AD. For the past two thousand years man has been able to live in overcoming freedom, from Satan's deceitful lies and violent treachery. We learn about the destruction of Satan's power and the victory of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, from Colossians chapter 2 verse 15. The real problem that man is faced with is that they either don't know they are completely free or they only embrace part of God's freedom for them or even, much worse, they completely reject His wonderful deliverance.
