Just because you have not seen the full manifestation of God’s power in one area of your life, does not mean you cannot, and should not, prosper like crazy in your life!
All our lives, we have been trained on what so-called “normal“ reactions are to various circumstances. Through TV, family, friends, and even by the impulses of our own unrenewed mind, we have been trained on what “normal” is.
You have doubtless heard a preacher, at some point, say “I haven’t arrived yet.“ This is super common to say in the church. But this is simply not true, at least not the way that they’re saying it.
In our last two articles, we have been explaining how we can see everything that Jesus put in us, manifest tangibly. Jesus told us that if we believe, we would see the glory of God manifest (John 11:40). This assurance that Jesus gave us, that we would see the glory of God, is called “hope” in the Bible. Hope is the sure expectancy that what we ALREADY have will manifest physically (Romans 8:24). That’s biblical hope.
What Jesus did for us is meant to manifest in our lives. Whatever you need to see manifest, you can see it! Let me explain:
Mark 16:17-18 (NKJV) And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Unfortunately, a lot of people have been hurt by preachers that pretend to be ministers of the gospel but are just after money. It’s a shame that those things happen, but unfortunately they do.
If I were to ask you, “How do you obey God?“ You would probably say “Well, by doing whatever God says to do.“ And you would be correct. More specifically, if God gives a law and you perform that law, that is biblical obedience.
Hopefully you are the kind of person that just wants to know what scripture says, even if you’ve never heard it before, because I’m fairly certain you’ve never heard what we are about to tell you.
You don’t need to talk to unbelievers to try to convince them about creationism versus evolution. Evolution neither saves a person nor condemns them. The thing that saves or condemns a person is whether they know what Jesus did or not.
