During the 31st night service into the first, we started talking about the message for the year, the Year of Perfection. Often times, you hear people say, “you know, we are not perfect, no one is perfect”. We went into the scriptures and discovered that it’s not only possible but God’s plan and desire for us.
If you wait for people to tell you that you are perfect, then you will never see yourself perfect. Remember in Jesus days, they didn’t think he was perfect, that’s why they killed him. Then again, who sets the standard for perfection? God does and if God wants you to walk in perfection, it means perfection is possible.
God’s love is a man. Remember this, Jesus was God’s love manifested. I am the expression of Jesus today. Did you know this? You are also the Word of God.
About a month of ago, we celebrate the birth of Jesus. Imagine this, Jesus was once a baby! God was once a baby! There was a time all Jesus could do was to cry, couldn’t even feed himself. He couldn’t even sit upright. Son of God was once a baby. Son of God doesn’t mean a son born by God, no it means, God in human flesh.
When you are born again, you are born a baby, that’s what the Word says. As new born baby, desire the sincere milk of the Word of God that you may grow thereby.
Even though Jesus was in the house with Mary and Joseph, the baby Jesus didn’t make the rule, daddy Joseph did. Joseph determined when they go to bed, even though Jesus was in the house. This is because at this time, Jesus was still a child.
So stop worrying yourself about the mistakes you made. You are growing, but you are still perfect because God said so.
Consistency in walking with God is the most natural thing for a Christian who has the Holy Ghost.
Q and A With Pastor Chris
Acts 10:47, Matthew 28:19 – Question About baptism of water and the spirit.
It shouldn’t be in any particular order. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is the new birth. The receiving of the Holy Spirit to live in you is when the anointing comes. There’s no particular order for receiving the Holy Spirit before water baptism… If you’re born again, it can happen to you in any order… When you were born again, you were immersed in the Holy Spirit. We are meant to drink in one body. The ones Peter preached to were born again, received the Holy Spirit (baptized by the Holy Ghost)… To time to receive the sinners prayer… In the house of Cornelius, they got baptized in water also…
Question: How can I live a life of glory?
When you live the life of Christ and according to the word of God…. Christ in you is the life of glory…
Question About the moral laws of the Old Testament and if they are abiding to Christians now…
The word of God is life. The righteous man doesn’t require the law. We are in Christ now. God had eternal covenant with Abraham. The old had been done away with, the testament, not the books. We are new creatures. References…
Ephesians 2:14-16 – He abolished in his flesh
1 Timothy 1:8- – The law is not made for a righteous man.
Galatians 5:1 – In the liberty where Christ has made us free
Romans 5:1 – Being justified by faith we are one with God in Christ
The law was given to the Jews and under the curse of the law, you’re not required to obey it because it wasn’t given to you in the first place any way. Moses was the mediator and the law wasn’t given to the non-Jews. The presence of the law was their condemnation.
Question About forgiving and having nothing to do with someone
Prophecy… It’s wonderful to be known of God and express His love. We read forgiveness wrong a lot of times. It’s not letting someone off the hook. It means a lot more. It’s a complete separation of the sinner from the offense. It’s a divorce. If that’s true, how can you not want to do anything with the person. Separate the individual from his error. Remit. The sins are remitted. Completely removed. That’s how God forgave you and want you to forgive.
Can I maintain the same relationship before and after? Maybe you might not have changed. You might do the same thing again. Wait until they do it again and I forgive seventy times seventy times?
Don’t go with the mindset of punishing them by not relating with them. Don’t love them so much that you don’t want to have anything to do with them. So, that’s it, I’ve answered you.
Blessed be God for ever and ever and ever and ever…
MESSAGE FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY 2020
I want to tell you about the month of February and I think it’s really special, it’s special.
I going to read 2 portion of the Bible then I will ye you. Ephesians 5:19
KJV:Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Col 3:16KJV:Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
It’s so powerful, then go to
Isaiah 35:10KJV:And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
1 God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.
2 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.
3 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
6 Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
7 God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
Did you see that. You can meditate on this throughout the month to understand what the Lord is saying because the month of February is the month of SONGS.
Hallelujah! Give God Krause and worship. Sing a new song unto God right now. It’s our month of songs.
