Are you here as a consumer or as an employee of the Lord. We are in a consumer culture. When we are looking what the Kingdom can do for me instead of looking at what can I do for the Kingdom, we become ineffective for the Kingdom. Genesis 1:26, being fruitful. This is how some of us live today, we live satisfied with an occasional visit from the Lord. Instead of Him being involved in you life all the time. Pastor Sydney Ropp read out of John 15:8, and 1 Corinthians 3:9. Not everything done is going to last or stand the test of fire. There is going to be a testing of the works we do. Pastor Sydney read out of Matthew 7:1 Much better to judge yourself is better than having someone else to judge you. We have the privileged of examining ourselves. Deal with yourself first. Pastor Sydney read from Jude 1:12. Don’t yield to condemnation but, if your heart is pricking do pay attention. Anything that makes us uncomfortable is not always the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit pricks yours heart to bring you closer to the Lord. Prune mean cleansing. No man can remove you from the vine. He needs you Jesus the vine and you are the body. The fruit doesn’t grow on the vine. Produce much fruit, go from glory to glory. If you stay in the Word all week, then you wouldn’t come to church as a consumer. It is time to examine yourself when you start to feel dried up and withered. Abide in Him and produce much fruit. What is blocking between you and the vine.? Examine it and remove it. If you are not staying hooked up with Him in relationship all your are doing is a fruitless exercise. You have to abide in Him. It is a place of living not a visitation. God is priority!
Pastor Rocky Veach mentioned that it is like building a fire. It’s a day to cross over. Now it is go time. It is time to rekindle the fire. The call is of the new and the old. To a degree everybody is a prophet. Set in on the training on how to be a Shepard. Pastor Rocky read from Hebrews 12. If I have to give in what do I have to give up? Time period of grace. He read from Hebrews 5:14, let God have all of your senses. He read out of Hebrews 11, stay in the new with God. What is happening is that there is a clash of two kingdoms God has secrete agents.
Pastor Rocky Veach mentioned that God is calling us to cross over. Unlock the key to the religion began. He is always using you to reach other places. One will one purpose of God. God is steady and strong. Get your eyes back on Jesus. We’re just ministering to those who are called. Faith is the responsibility we have. Pastor Rocky read out of Hebrews 11, we are answering the call to stand out for God. It requires going to the other side. There is a time to be among them, time to be along side God, and a time to be on assignment. Don’t give yourself over to suggestions. Don’t believe everything you see or hear. Pastor Rocky read out of Hebrews 8 and referenced Hebrews 16, the church was defeated by their own success. Pastor Rocky had read from Hebrews 4:16 and referenced Acts 15.
Pastor Rocky Veach mentioned that God wants to engage us. God chooses to use us in the plan. Many people are awakening. Pastor Rocky encourages us to get present with the Lord and intend to be called. It is like a blank canvas and throwing paint at it. Jesus is worth your time. It’s dealing with the process. Pastor Rocky read out of Revelation 1:12 and Hebrews 6:1, get past the foundation. Sometimes depression or sadness comes but, you got to remember what Jesus has done. Give God time, because God is interested in houses. Pastor Rocky read from Acts 3, we still have an on going relationship with the Lord. Where are our ears? Are you hearing? Ears have a lot to do with the condition of our heart.
Pastor Rocky Veach mentioned that we minimize God’s plan. Take advantage of what He has called us to do. To set the limits or the boundaries in advance. Jesus died to deliver us from our old nature. Rocky read from Hebrews 1. Rocky talked about how him and his wife almost had a divorce but, God had come through. The reason few are chosen is because there is time involved. You are chosen but, do you chose to be chosen? It comes down to words, to find out what it means and how it is used. You go into levels of sleep. Dreams usually have a lot to do with what is going on. We see through a glass darkly. God wants to talk to those who have a calling. We are not moving forward with the call. To cross over into a region beyond is what Hebrews mean. Abraham’s name got changed to Hebrew in Genesis 14. If we don’t pay attention to God we will not hear Him. Rocky references Romans 8. Much of the church is asleep. God is going to raise up a might people because they know their God. It is time to rise up in your call and in the authority of God. Hebrews start in the book of Psalms. Rocky referenced Psalms 110. Our call is a continuation of His call. We are not to do it alone. God has got His eye on you. He waits for the precious fruit of the earth.
Karen Burrows talked about letting self decrease and God increase in our lives. She also mentioned that culture does not change the Bible. As the church we have become lukewarm. Churches are embracing sin and are saying that it is ok. Tolerance is not the Bible. It is the truth and love of God that sets the captive free. Karen mentioned that oil an water do not mix. We should not tolerate sin in our lives. We are to be seed planters. Karen read out of 2 Timothy 3:16. We got to draw the line in the sand. Love the sinner but, hate the sin. Karen read out of Hebrews 4 and 1 Timothy 1:2. You are responsible for how you live your life and how to grow up in God. Karen read out of 2 Timothy 4:2-5, Romans 10:8-10, Romans 14:11, and John 3:3. You must be born again!
Pastor Sydney Ropp read fro Psalm 107:17. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law (613 laws). Then he read from Exodus 23:20, the covenant is conditional verse 26, no body dies young, no woman will lose their child. Deuteronomy 28:14If you break one law you break them all. The good news is that we don’t have to live under a curse. It is only that in Christ the curse is lifted. Pastor Sydney read out of Hebrews 8:6, a better covenant. You believe it to recieve where as the old one was that you had to earn it to deserve it. Pastor Sydney referenced John 17:4. He read from Romans 10:4, Christ is the end of that law. Christ is the law of love.The good news does no one any good if they don’t know about it. Pastor Sydney made a covenant to give John a $100. It does John no good because he was told that it was gifted to him but, it was not in his possession. In order for the covenant to be beneficial to him and to lead him to the way of the cross or where the $100 was. John was shown it but, he had the option to reach for it symbolism of his free will to choose Christ or not. It is our responsibility to show people the way. To be a disciple. Pastor Sydney read out of Luke 22:14 and 1 Corinthians 11:23.
The River of the Holy Spirit is flowing in this place. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. Pastor Pradeep prayed of the congregation declaring liberty over lives, liberty over your children, and he declared liberty over your well being. Someone here that God is healing your mind right now, the healing power of God is coming upon you and He is touching your mind right now. Thoughts are going to be changed into holy thought and happy thinking. There was someone else that God is healing lower back pain. Someone else that God is healing the pain in the spine. Someone else where God is healing your neck and healing you completely. Someone had gotten report about chest pain. God is saying do not worry do not fret for I am the Healer. I have sent my word and I will heal every aliment an every disease. The breath of God is here. He will touch you, he will heal you, and he will restore you. There was someone that had a demonic attack and the work of God is crushing the enemy Pastor Pradeep continued to pray.
We are fools for Christ and you are going to be a winner. Where ever you go you may feel that it may not work out in the heathen world but, Got has got better plans. God is greater. Pastor Pradeep read from 2 Samuel 6:11. He mentioned that God is going to release hope into your life because of the Holy Spirit. The work of the Holy Spirit is that you choose to please God. When you choose to please God, God is pleased with you. Pastor Pradeep referenced Psalm 37:4, abundance was a word that had come to him. Luke 1:26-38 and 2 Peter 3:18, growing in grace. Grace means that God is with us. God wants to give us favor. In the book of Esther, Esther was going through a time period of purification. Issue of the heart. God is preparing our hearts so that we could deeper into the presence of the Lord. Esther prepared herself and came into the royal court and became a queen. Esther used that favor for Kingdom purposes. God will take you from glory to glory. The power of fasting and prayer does work with the word of God. Pastor Pradeep encourages us to wait on God. He mentions that the Lord is with us. Genesis 22:9 was read from. 1) Place of order, examine yourself and walk in the Spirit. 2) Waiting on God, it deals with and attitude of change, John 5:19. 3) The key, the Holy Spirit will come and overshadow you. Living in the overflow things don’t matter anymore. 1 King 19:19, be faithful where you are. 2 Kings 2:9, God will test us. God is releasing holy determination. Activation is happening as you are being ministered to. Pastor Pradeep gave a testimony about his wife being able to get pregnant.
Pastor Sydney Ropp mentioned “we are not waiting for the move of God. We are the move of God”. Pastor Sydney read out of Jonah 1. He mentioned that judgement is a real thing. We see things as being judgement that aren’t judgement at all. We should not be so quick to say that it was God’s judgement. Judgement is a decision. It is not smart to disobey something the Lord has told you to do. The fish was God’s mercy to Jonah. Matthew 12:40, show us that you are the son of God. Jonah 2:1, Jonah calls out from the dead. The pit means corruption. An idol is something you worship and anything that takes place before the Lord. Salvation is from the Lord. God is a God of unlimited chances. You and I have good new, you don’t have to die and go to hell. We have good news to take to the people.Jonah was clear on instruction and yet he chose not to do what the Lord told him to do. Not obeying the Lord is wrong.Pastor Sydney read from Mark 16:15 and Acts 1:8. What did you witness? You are suppose to tell that. Only if you open your mouth, there would be grace there to carry on a conversation with a person. The reason we are alive today, our purpose is to see people translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light. The ministry of reconciliation, to relationship with the Father. It is easy to be hard on Jonah but, easy to for us to make an excuse for ourselves.
Pastor Sydney talked a little about abortion and encouraged us to go see Unplanned. He questioned what are we doing as a community to prevent abortion? We together are Church of the Word International. It is not enough just to pray. We have to put action to our prayer. Our job is to do the work of the ministry and it is Pastor Sydney’s job to feed us the Word. Kathleen English spoke about her experience with abortion and she encourages us that God restores time and what was lost. Mike Frede mentioned about how Ephesians 3:20, is encouraging for family to continue on. Pastor Sydney mentions that the Lord wants to empower us. We can’t walk on the water. His grace is there to empower us. Josh Shuman encourages to know who we are voting for to know whether or not the candidate is for abortion at any stage of life. Pastor Sydney mentioned that we have work to do and it is time for us to act. Let’s get out of the boat. He encourages us to do our research. What do we have available in this county? How might we act differently if we were the only church left in the community? Communion had taken place. It is more than just freeing you from your past. The time is now the season is now.
Jim spoke these words to Dale. “Those words which were spoken over your life, that were spoken over your life which you have seen manifest and fulfilled were from my lips and my heart saith the Lord. Yea, there is more yet to come there are greater assignments. There is more yet to do. Do not draw back do not stay thy hand. Be steady and unmovable. Though shalt continue to abound in the work of the Lord. Despise not small beginnings. Every beginning that is of Me saith the Lord has the seed of greatness and manifest life for many and miracles. So rejoice and be glad when I speak saith the Lord. For my word shall be fulfilled. It shall come to past. Rejoice and be glad and leap with joy and gladness for all that I have done and all that I shall do.”
Pam Dumont told the miracle of her husband and her walk with God. Pam mentioned that everywhere she went that Jesus was her friend. Pam tells a story of when her husband was found laying at the bottom of the hill unconscious. She mentioned that the bible says to call on the elders. A hundred people showed up to intercede. Pam thought that Jim was dead. She knew that if she let herself look at the situation she could have continued to think that Jim was dead or she could praise the Lord. She knew that she couldn’t let her emotions get to her. It is the overwhelming preciousness. The bible says that it is the renewing of your mind. After Pam was told that Jim had brain damage. Their grandchildren had prayed and sang over Jim. Jim had pushed through the coma and had come back and had a five day recovery in rehab. 1) The prayer of faith will save the sick man. 2) Jim had needed prayer of faith. His brain, the washing of the water of the word. We have lost the reverence of the Lord. Philippians 3:10, that we know Him. 3) To know Jesus in the power of His resurrection. It is easier to deal with junk in your life now rather than later. Pam referenced Hebrews 11:35. There are so many attributes of Jesus and we can have as much of Him as we want. So many people only know Jesus as savior and stop there, just enough to get into heaven. However, He is our redeemer, He is master, the way of truth an life, the bright and morning star, He is the Lamb of God, the Head of the church, our faithful and truth, and He is all these things and many more. Philippians 3:8, the overwhelming preciousness. One of the things that marks a devoted follower is the story can be told it is the sheep that is devoted to the Shepard. Those that look to Jesus will become radiant. Bring home those that He loves. He called for this season knowing what we are facing. For those who are radiant the world will come and be a path to your door. We cannot afford worry, anxiety, or pettiness.
Apostle Dale Armstrong read out of Luke 18:1. Faint means to cave in of faint. People generally can’t stay committed to something that doesn’t produce results. How often would you pray if you saw results and what would you be praying? Prayer should fill our lives. Apostle Dale read out of John 15:1. Prayer keeps you in tune. The answers to prayer is associated to bearing fruit. There is a differentiation between the written word and the spoken word. We are to have communion with the Lord. Gather direction from the Holy Spirit. Apostle Dale read from Philippians 4:6. Worry could be turned into a prayer request. If we don’t pray enough eventually we will cave. What happens to people when prayers are answered? 1). People want to pray more. 2). You want to be with people who pray. 3). Presence of two or three successful prayer warriors sparks a revival. 4). Tangible sense of God’s action in their life, John 15:4-7. 5). A person’s prayers are answered consistently. If you do what you know to do, you’d be a whiz!
Pastor Sydney Ropp read out of Luke 17:11 and Hebrews 11:1. They asked the Lord to have mercy on them. Mercy and God’s provision cannot be divided. Pastor Sydney read from Mark 10:46, Are you telling the good news so that people can receive it and are you sharing the good news of the gospel? Faith is specific. Ephesians 2:4, abundant in mercy because of His great love. So, when people ask for mercy they are looking for the answer to the problem that they are up against. We will have trouble but, be of good cheer. Go in His authority. Ask the Lord for mercy, His grace and compassion has come upon you. Pastor Sydney read from Mark 5:1.
3) His words are at work in the unseen realm. Sometimes healing takes time. Apostle Dale read out of Romans 4:17 and mentions that denial is not faith. We are taught to speak to the problem. Do not waiver. Faith is of the heart, you have to renew your mind. Your faith is deliberately applied, believe that it will come to pass. You want to find where your faith is, role of desire, and understand release. Forgiveness, we got to stay clean and keep our hearts right before the Lord.
Apostle Dale read out of James 1:5 , the just shall live by faith. Faith is not just an isolated moment. Faith should be operating throughout our life all the time. It not something to us just when we get the bill in the mail. Every time we praise the Lord is an act of faith. Hebrews 11:1, evidence not seen. He references Luke 5:22, Jesus saw their faith. Sometimes fear will motivate people to pray. Our dirty laundry is not to be on display for people to see. Apostle Dale mentioned that if he saw faith he will throw gasoline on it. You have to take steps with faith. People get discouraged because they don’t see a result right away. You have to build your faith. It takes time, nourishment or food, and it takes exercise. Faith will make you do interesting things. You don’t have to waiver. When you drop a rock in the water, you never know how far the ripples will travel. Faith is important to release God’s purpose in your life. Apostle Dale encourages us to use our faith. A faith that you use to cast out the devil, a faith to use in church. There is a faith to be used out in the world, so use your faith.
Apostle Dale Armstrong read out of Hebrews 11:6, without faith it is impossible to please Him. He read out of 1 Peter 3, always be ready to give an answer. Apostle Dale encourages us to study faith. Prove yourself in your faith. Faith has no limits. “He wants to turn the tide of the battle in your life.” It does not mean that problems in your life are going to disappear. Thank God we have faith. It is called a shield of faith. Put up the shield of faith, defensive. You learn that healing is for your. You begin to learn that you can live in abundance.The tide of the battle turns when you begin to fight and do what God has created you to do. 1) What is faith and what is not faith? 2) How is faith developed? Romans 12 states that God has given faith to everyone. 3) How is faith applied? We need to examine our faith and we need to know when we get out of faith. Faith is not understood. Faith is based on us looking to God. You may know something and it may not be right. Apostle Dale read out of Romans 1:16 and Romans 10:17. We need to hear with our ears. Rama is when He is going to prosper you and the just shall live by faith. Logas, Greek word for written or recorded word of God. When you know you are right with God, faith works. Apostle Dale read from Luke 5:20, Acts 14:7, Mark 11:22, and Hebrews 11:3. We need to take time with the Lord. Feed ourselves food or the word of God. We need to exercise our faith.
Karen Burrows mentioned that the Father looks at your heart. She read out of 1 Peter 1:23, the word of God is incorruptible. Karen read out of John 3:3 and Matthew 7:21. 2 Peter 3:9, all shall come to repentance. If you could get to heaven by your good works then, why would Jesus be sent to the cross? He is the only way to the Father. You come into communion with the Lord Jesus Christ. Karen read out of 2 Corinthians 5:17. Karen talks about true forgiveness. It is when you don’t bring up someone’s past. Philippians 4:7, rejoice in the Lord. R+L-W+P+T is to rejoice add love subtract worry add praise plus thanksgiving believe it and say it.
