Ephesians 4 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
WE ARE NOT THERE YET , WE STILL NEED THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRIES UNTIL CHRIST RETURN FOR US.
SO THAT THAT GOD IS GOD ALL BY HIMSELF AND DOES NOT NEED TO EXPLAIN HIMSELF TO ANY MAN!
God, all by Himself! We, as believers, are endowed with POWER from on high! The gifts are from God for His body. They are still activated and worked by His Holy Spirit, who dwells within us!
Great Sermon! Lori, if what you are saying is true, can you provide evidence of just one amputee that has been healed? I worked in the medical world for 22 years and if all of these so called signs and wonders are happening today, then why did I never see it happen one time?
Great Sermon! I'm glad to hear a debate on the authority of scripture instead of cessationist attacking the charismatic movement as a reason to reject the spiritual gifts for today. Jesus Christ by the power of the Spirit gaves gifts to the Church of God until His return and nowhere in scripture does it say other wise. I don't believe everything happening in Pentecostal or Charismatic circles are authentic and there is error, but that doesn't change the words of Jesus Christ. We need the Holy Spirit now more than ever because this country is going to hell at the speed of gravity. One side almost rejects the Holy Spirit and the other side has frauds and lunatics. Dr Brown did a great job at showing from scripture that the gifts are for believers to the glory of Christ.
Great Debate! I was very blessed to hear God's Spirit rightly dividing scripture through Dr. Michael Brown. It was refreshing to hear his thoughts in this debate. We cannot deny the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. The same Spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead dwells within every born again believer. Signs and wonders will follow them that believe. May God deliver His own from unbelief. He is The God of healing, deliverance and life changing miracles of salvation all over the world. Blessed be His Most Precious Holy Name! May His Spirit have His way in every believer in these last days. Let us not deny the power of His Spirit for scripture says we are to turn away from such a thing.
Great Sermon! I liked the video overall. I got a little uneasy when lacey started talking about the suicidal spirit and the guy that had a word to God for her.... I must admit that it made me uneasy. But I have a hard time calling her a liar....don't know what to think
What if it was $666.00? I would say the lady is Extreme and misinformed. She truly thinks she is denying God by accepting this number, which is NOT the case!
I was wondering, if it was a$666.00 check, would she accept it?
She has information without wisdom.
Wisdom is the principle thing!
Shocking We knew decades ago that, with the legalization of abortion in the civilized world, it was only a matter of time that murdering children in the name of mercy would become law. Still, it's shocking to know that the moment may have arrived. However, for a great number of years we humans have been taught that we are just another kind of animal. We DO "put down" our sick animals, don't we?
Warning label for Jesus' teaching In listening to "Pastor" Nadia's message, she opened by saying "This week I was thinking that Jesus' teaching should come with a warning label, something like, caution contents may cause extreme discomfort if actually ingested. "
Hearing someone speak of discomfort with Scripture while actually being quite comfortable as a female pastor in direct violation of God's words is strange. "I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet." (1 Timothy 2:12)
Paul lists the qualifications for elder/overseer in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9.
Great Sermon! Beyond the obvious disregard for God's Word regarding women pastors, this is another mixed up person that is saying go pound sand to the rest of orthodox Christianity. She's going to make up for herself what she thinks is right, create her own god and tickle the ears of other mixed up and confused people.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, (2 Timothy 4:3 NASB)
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. (Proverbs 14:12 ESV)
Many more verses like that.
Think What This May Mean Dr. Dave Hunt (The Seduction of Christianity) was not a proponent of the field of psychology. In a message of his here on SermonAudio.com (The Cult of Self Esteem) at marker 37:46 there is an interesting quote about the drugs that are used to treat mental illness. The entire message deals with (in Dr. Hunt's point of view) the unbiblical and unscientific field of psychology and its influence on Christian counseling.
Great Sermon! I think the marathoner is consumed with superstition. 666 is nothing to be afraid of. If i live in a house bearing 666 i am fine with that. Or if i have a licence plate with 666, i am ok with that too. Whatever it is 666 is for the tribulation period which we are not part of.
NO LONGER SURPRISED! Their argument will be!...."Jesus drank wine...so why can we have a few beers??....as long as we don't get drunk rite???".....And if they believe in "charismatic theology" they'll probably say...."The spirit spoke to me an told me to start this ministry!".....Smh
Great Sermon! Listen to Dr. Alan Cairns brief sermonette "Pray for forgiveness of sin?" on this subject. He points to the Lord's prayer "..and forgive us our trespasses" and other Bible passages to support his points. It is absolutely necessary for Christians to confess sins to their Father whom they've offended..
