Expectation of Good or Evil- Removing Doubt from the Heart Series #26

image.jpeg

What spiritual button are you going to push? It depends on you and not God whether you will expect His goodness or be like the world "if it can go wrong,  it will"? Some have the attitude, "Whatever will be , will be." God says differently. He says to you and me, "I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing (either good or evil), so, YOU choose!" (Deuteronomy 30:19, 20) No, it is not being optimistic alone. Optimism without God is generally wishful thinking, and I am not referring to that, though, frankly, many can use a good dose of optimism. I am writing about deciding to live by God's Word and DOING it, and purposely choosing that which is good, blessing, and life. Let's discuss it in today's message.

Redemption covers every facet of life and eternity. Did you know that fear of evil was a part of the curse that came into this planet with the fall of Adam and Eve? It permeated the planet, but Jesus, through His awesome and eternal sacrifice for us, redeemed us from having to accept, tolerate, or operate in fear! We are redeemed from fear through the blood of the Lamb, and the "back" of fear has been broken, and we can go absolutely free. Through this message, learn about this powerful truth concerning our redemption. Be blessed!

Fear is a Part of Doubt- Removing Doubt from the Heart Series #24

faith-versus-fear-24.jpg

Knowing and understanding that fear is a part of doubt is important. A twinge of fear is doubt that is trying to get into your heart. Unless you take action against it, it will affect your faith. In the same way that we would resist (or should resist) some temptation trying to make us sin against God's moral commandments, we MUST resist fear. Don't play with it in your feelings or thoughts. Take a stand against it in Jesus' name. Let me share with you in this message what to do when fear tries to get you to doubt.

Spirit of Power vs. spirit of fear- Removing Doubt from the Hear Series #23

faith-versus-fear-23.jpg

God has not given us the spirit of fear. What has He given to believers? He has given to us the spirit of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). The Spirit of God will never minister fear, despising your neighbor, or having a troubled, anxious, and worried mind. These are powerful truths, and we look at them in this study.

You are not here by coincidence or by accident. The Lord Jesus is providing you with certain information that you will need. Believe it!

Faith vs. Fear and Company- Removing Doubt from the Heart Series #22

faith-versus-fear22.jpg

God has not given us the spirit of fear, but the spirit of power, love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7) The fear this is tallking about is that fear of evil things and of evil things happening to you. It attackes all human beings, but as a believer you do not have to yield to it like the world does, and you can resist fear and overcome it. Faith is the ecaxct opposite of fear. The two do not function in the same place at the same time. Here is the great and powerful good news: if we will act on the Word in faith then fear is negated and overcome! Faith will overwhelm (overcome) fear! The world is full of the fear of evil and terror, but this is the victory that overcomes the world, OUR FAITH (1 John 5:4). Be blessed with this message.
