Summary: We need that old time covering, and we need that old time Pentecostal power back in our lives. The church world needs to get back to the basics of our faith, get back on our knees and start talking to the Lord. We need a childlike faith.

Moving To A New House

2 Corinthians 5:1-8

1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:

7 For we walk by faith, not by sight

8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

I have entitled this today: “Moving To A New House”

God is alive and He is on the move.

The Lord wants to take us to new rooms in the things of Him.

He wants us to know that if we ask and are a believer then all things are possible.

Understand that with new levels, there will be new devils that will come against your walk.

God would not move you if He did not know that you could handle it.

In our opening text it says: For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God,

What we need to remember is that our physical bodies are not permanent; we have a building of God.

This is referring to the glorified bodies which all saints will receive at the Resurrection.

We have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

This glorified body is created by God and will last forever.

In our present physical body, we groan, not complaining but rather seeing by faith that which is to come, and longing for it to arrive.

2 Corinthians 5:2

2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

In the coming Resurrection when the corruptible shall put on incoruption and the mortal shall put on immortality.

2 Corinthians 5:3

3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

We will not be destitute of covering, but will be clothed with light.

Moving To A New House

Dream 4-23-09

I dreamed that I was upstairs at Minnie’s. I was taking my clothes and hanging them in the hall press. I was getting ready to move to a new house.

Interpretation

Minnie’s is where I was raised as a kid, upstairs means another level.

I was taking my clothes and hanging them in the hall press.

Clothes means covering, I was hanging them in the hall press.

The hall press is where I used to go to pray.

I need that old time covering, and I need that old time power.

The church world needs to get back to the basics of our faith, get back on our knees and start talking to the Lord.

We need a childlike faith.

In the dream I was getting ready to move!

When I was a youngster, I knew that God was a God who could and would do the impossible.

When I got a little older I swayed from my belief system.
