Take up your beam

Purpose of teaching- not just for information exchange but for life transformation- that is not a preference.

When Saul was knocked down by the HS on the Road to Damascus, he knew- not a casual transformation.

We live in an age that has trivialized faith.

We have made it little more than a preference where we move- boundaries of our faith to suit ourselves.

I want-COTRM experience to be spiritually formative.

Introduction

Last week- looked at the miracle of the birth of the Body of Christ some 2000 years ago.

Body of Christ- not born through the wisdom of men.

There is- supernatural element to the Body of Christ.

Kathryn Kuhlman- evangelist/healer-

Whenever we find the presence of the Holy Spirit, we will always find the supernatural.

The disciples were instructed by Jesus-

“And behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.” Luke 24:49 (NAS)

Church-different than other organizations-supernatural

To fulfill its mission it needs the presence of the HS.

Last week- challenged church- memorize two verses-

17 “These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mk 16:17–18

Give out iTunes gift card to person who recites verses.

Elisha and the School of Prophets

Thursday morning- lady- FCC- prayed prophetically-

2 Ki 6:1-7

v1- School of the Prophets- young men being trained for prophetic/priestly ministry

Elisha-like his predecessor, Elijah-was a prophet-who-

understood God’s will (alignment- Jn7:17) and

how to exercise God’s power.

This space is too small (2 Ki 6:1)

The place where they met/lived was too small.

Limited- restricted, confined, cramped, narrow

It lacks- breadth, width, dimensions- need for growth.

God wants us to grow/expand, break off restrictions.

Too often our expectations before God are too small.

Too often our dreams of what God can do- too small.

I’m a thousand times bigger on the inside than I am on the outside. Smith Wigglesworth

Wigglesworth- dream in his heart that he had faith for.

“You are what you eat”-you are also what you believe-

I am not moved by what I see.

I am not moved by what I feel.

I am moved only by what I believe. Wigglesworth

What do you believe about God?

What do you believe about God in you? (Col 1:27)

What do you believe about God in the church?

Prayer prayed or prophesied- Thurs morning prayer-

-Standing room only inside and parking attendants on the outside

-Full hotels, restaurants overflowing- people flooding- area because of what God was doing

-On our sign we put the number of people saved and healed each weekend

What is God saying/what are we willing to believe?

Carry your beam (2 Ki 6:2)

Jordan- wooded banks would furnish plenty of beams.

Each member of the school- go to- Jordan, pick up a beam- join the rest- build new meeting/living area.
