The Power of the Resurrection

Sunday April 8, 2012

Pastor Dale tells of the power of just declaring “Jesus is alive!” and how a deaf-mute girl was healed. Payment (Jesus’ blood) for our sin was not enough; punishment was required, too, and that started at the cross and sent Him to hell for three days. As much as the cross is a part of salvation, there is nothing mentioned about it in Rom. 10:7-10. Salvation is faith in the truth that Jesus IS alive. In Acts 9:4-18 Jesus asked Saul why he was persecuting Him (Jesus), showing that He took Saul’s persecution against the Christians personally. Like Paul we need to tell God that we’ll do what He asks, and then He will tell us what His will for our life is. Like Paul, we can know that Jesus has a purpose for each of us, and we need to be obedient to do it (Acts 26:12-19). Pastor Dale shared about the apostolic call on his life, first to Belarus and to intercede for the cities. God is stirring in Pastor/Apostle Dale to visit the cities of Russia to bring revival. We all need to be great, to be nation-changers, and we all need the blood of Jesus. Word in sermon: There are some things God won’t do until you finish your list. There was a word given to Pastor/Apostle Dale at the end.
