God’s Promises

18 Dec Supernatural Enablement!

I often find my blog posts being some 400 to 500 words in length. For some subjects, it just takes a bunch of words to express what is in my heart. But, this blog will be super, super (I could add a few supers to make it longer) short. Why? Because I don't need to amplify what the Amplified Bible tells us in Ephesians 3:20 about our walking with an overflowing confidence that the Holy Spirit will manifest His presence in and through us. “Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the (action of His) power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly,  far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].” Ephesians 3:20 (Amplified Bible) Enough said....

06 Nov Do Miracles Still Happen?

While preaching this past Sunday in one of our Holy Spirit Rallies, I shared that the greater works that Jesus promised (John 14:12) are made possible because "I go to my Father". In other words, Jesus' return to heaven and the ensuing sending of the Holy Spirit (John 14:16; 16:7) opened the door to the greater works (Acts 1:8). I also mentioned that churches all across our land have shut this door. Sadly, pastors are standing behind their pulpits preaching that the outpouring of God's Spirit and the days of miracles are long gone. I learned a few days ago of one of these churches located in our area. So, today I visited that churches' website and read on the page listing their core beliefs that believe and teach that the supernatural working of the Holy Spirit was given to certain individuals in the early church for the sole purpose of confirming their ministry. Evidently, they like many other churches believe that the days of the supernatural manifestations of the Holy Spirit was limited to the early church and ended when the last apostle died. Thankfully, I have found the opposite to be true. No where in the Scriptures can I find a single verse that even half way implies that the Holy Spirit withdrew the casting out of demons, the speaking with new tongues, the rendering of poison harmless, and the healing of the sick when the last apostle took their final breath. The door into the miracle-working power of the Holy Spirit is still wide open. To those who question if miracles still happen today, let me close out this blog post by sharing this powerful insight from George Jeffreys ...

28 Aug The Holy Ghost Lottery?

When Vickie and I lived in South Florida, I would see each day on my way to and from the church a large billboard that advertised the Florida lottery and its possible payout. At times, that payout would be in the tens of millions of dollars and others times in the hundreds of millions of dollars. To many Floridians, this was quite tempting, so tempting that thousands and thousands of people each week spent their hard-earned money for what might equal a one chance in 150 million of walking away with the lottery prize. Think about this ...
