Powers and principalities have been disarmed and disabled, hereby in Jesus' Name brought to nought, by the power of the Holy Spirit. 
A reprieve has come upon the people of God, all you who were subject to torment by the enemy, by a mighty move of the sovereign Hand of God.  The Kingdom of God has come! 
Praise God alone, that He...

Breaking the Bonds of Darkness

Posted Aug 2nd 2009, 12:00 by The Elect on Teaching/Education


BREAKING THE BONDS OF DARKNESS
 
The designs of God are truly amazing. We should stand in awe by the plans that He has devised for us. Nothing happens by accident. He made each one of us and appointed this time for us to live. We have been given our bodies, handed back our dominion and sent forth with absolute authority to accomplish His work in the world.
 
Our authority is not limited to this world. We have authority in the same world...

Tongues of Fire

Posted Jul 26th 2009, 12:00 by The Elect on Teaching/Education


TONGUES OF FIRE
 
Before the day of Pentecost, the Holy Ghost had come upon men and women periodically, usually to empower them for specific tasks given by God as portrayed in the Old Testament. Pentecost fulfilled Old Testament prophecy and many predictions made by Jesus Himself.
 
Christ taught His disciples to pray, “Thy kingdom come” (Matthew 6:10) The Apostle Paul said, “The kingdom of God is not meat and drink [it was not by observing any particular feast, custom, or ritual]; but...

LET THE GOD KIND OF LIFE DOMINATE YOU
 
2nd Corinthians 4:10, 11 “Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.”
 
The Apostle Paul talks about the life of God in our spirits being manifested in our bodies. He is...

The God Kind of Life

Posted Jul 15th 2009, 12:00 by The Elect on Teaching/Education


THE GOD KIND OF LIFE
 
Why did Jesus come? Was it to found a church? To improve humanity or give us a code of conduct? He came for one purpose: “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
 
The Bible says that, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). The Bible also...

Fatih Is The Substance of Things Hoped For

Posted Jul 12th 2009, 12:00 by The Elect on Teaching/Education


FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR
 
According to Hebrews 11:1, faith is the substance of things hoped for. If faith is the substance of things hoped for, then it is obvious that hope without faith has no substance.
 
What does substance mean? Substance is that which can be perceived or contacted by your senses, your basic five bodily senses. You can smell it, see it, touch it, taste it or hear it. In other words, substance is something which makes...

Knowing What Belongs To Us

Posted Jul 8th 2009, 12:00 by The Elect on Teaching/Education


KNOWING WHAT BELONGS TO US
 
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” (Ephesians 1:3).
 
Christians have been blessed with an inheritance in Christ. Everything that Jesus Christ bought and paid for at Calvary belongs to the Christian now. That includes “All spiritual blessings in Christ” (see opening scripture). Yet many Christians don’t know that all spiritual blessings are already their; instead, by prayer and believing...

Now Faith Is............

Posted Jul 5th 2009, 12:00 by The Elect on Teaching/Education


NOW FAITH IS…………
 
Hebrews 11:1 states, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
 
Why is this verse so important to us as believers? Let’s take this verse as the classic scripture definition of what faith is. It’s one thing to have a definition; it’s something else again to understand what that definition means to us personally. To be able to memorize and quote verse such as this is great and appropriate. But if we...

Are You Limiting God?

Posted Jul 1st 2009, 03:52 by The Elect on Teaching/Education


ARE YOU LIMITING GOD?
 
What are limits? Limits are boundaries. We all have them. Every one of us have circumstances and limited ways of thinking. When Jesus comes into our heart, He wants to remove the limits we have rooted in our lives that hinder us.
 
There is a distinction between good limits and bad limits. Good limits are limits that keep us from doing something foolish and hurting ourselves or someone else. Bad limits are limits that hinder us and keep...

The Widow and the Judge

THE WIDOW AND THE JUDGE
 
Luke 18:1-8 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard...

Getting Back On Course

GETTING BACK ON COURSE
 
Church members seeking a vision, direction, or goal for their church don’t have to wonder what direction to take. Their course is already clearly marked for them in the Word of God. God calls us to be a people of love.
 
If that is not a big enough chore, a church is to love its community. If that is not big enough, a church is to love its enemies. And if that is not a big enough chore,...

Basic Elements of Faith

BASIC ELEMENTS OF FAITH
 
Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
 
A strong faith structure begins with a firm foundation. To build the Empire State Building in New York they had to put in deep footings. It’s the same with faith. We need to develop a deep root system based upon nothing but the Word...

The Keys of the Kingdom

            KEYS OF THE KINGDOM
 
“I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19).
 
The authority of binding and loosing is on earth. You have that authority as a child of God. One translation says, “You have authority to bind what is bound in heaven and to loose what is loosed in heaven.”
