Reforming

6-30-19
Pastor Gloria
 
Romans 7:14-20 Starting place. You can't make it
without Jesus.
1. The law is spiritural, but I am carnal.
2. Sold under sin
Just can't seem to act right.
Satan is out to take you out.
Leviticus 26:23-25 OT
If you will not be reformed.
Walk contrary.
You will be punished 7 times for your sins.
If you walk contrary to God, He will walk contrary to you.
You can try to do better.
There is more than you reforming yourself.
Praise God for grace! We would all be guilty.
Romans 8:3,4 Law-flesh-God sending His own son (Powerful-
read it all)
Law of flesh-requires a penalty.
God gave us a way out.
Can't reform yourself. Instead trust God.
Law was our guardian until Christ came, in order
that we might be justified by faith.
We are now under grace.
Galatians 3:13-Redeemed from the curse.
Galations 3: 24, 25 After faith is come (Justified)
Galations 4: 4,5 But at the right time-fulness of time-Christ.
Romans 10:4 Christ is the end.
1. Conforming-is external-more concerned with how things look.
2. Reforming is external-try to improve by ones self.
3. Transforming- is internal ( a change of the quality of a thing-change
of behaviour.)
Ephesians 3:19
 


Standing the Test of Time

6-23-19
Pastor Gloria
Proverbs 4:23  Guard your heart above all else
for out of it spring the issues of life.
Romans 12:1-2 We are on a spiritual journey. Sometimes
we don't understand the things that happen.
Every sin starts with something.
You may know something and yet not abide in it.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed
by the renewing of your mind.
Understand:  God wants you to walk in victory.
Guard your heart.
All of us have to stand the test of time.
Don't conform to the world.
a. Conforming is done by an outside influence.
b.  If you want to be acceped-fit in_ then you will act
like someone else wants you to act.
(Like Jello being made-It takes the shape of the mold its
poured in to.)
c.  We are not to be like the world
2 Cor 4:4 Satan is the evil of this age.
He walks about seeking whom he may devour.
...whose minds the god of this age has blinded.
Tell the tuth
It doesn't matter if you believe the Word- It IS the truth.
You are accountable for what you do.
Truth is truth.
A lie is a lie is a lie. No such thing as a little white lie. If you
will tell a little white lie, you will tell a big black lie.
Romans 8:31-39
the devil's influence will speak to your mind.
We all have times of testing inside and outside.
Prove-means to put it to the test.
If God is for us who can be against us?  If you stand in faith
nothing can bring you down. Tell the truth.
Ephesians 3:19...to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Pastor Gloria
 
Freedom-Liberty-Grace-Power
Those in the flesh cannot please God.
Rom :8, 7,18, 21 the liberty of the children of God.
You have been adopted into the Kingdom.  When
God adopts you, He doesn't give up on you.  Saves
you to the utmost-but there are still things that need
to be worked on.
Rom 6:23 The wages of sin is death.
1 Cor 15:3 Christ died for our sins.  Law of sin and death.
Receive-open your heart.  Believe when you don't see.
You want what you want no matter the consequences.
James 1:25 Law of Liberty
A. It's a declaration of righteousness by Christ.
B. Offer of peace and pardon (through Christ)
C. Free promise of eternal life.
Would Jesus want me to see that?
Want me to do that?
Why find something bad in everything?
Why not find something good?
Take the day as it comes.
Perservere. Take the good side.
Know the tricks of the enemy.
Pray "God show me"
Law of faith
Rom 3:27 Perfect Law- only christ could be the only
sacrifice to bring release from the eternal death sentence
that law brings upon all sinners.

God want to do with the remnant?  Be strong, work. What

of the Lord will move. You can know people by the Spirit. Transformation
comes when the Spirit is there. You may not understand when the Spirit
is moving.
 Sam 5:24 The Spirit will transform the Land.
Sometimes you have to fight a battle. Don't let things around you deter you
from what the Spirit leads you to do-when you hear... when you feel... when
you  KNOW it is a God thing.
Gal 4:19 Christ must be formed in us. Something must be formed on the inside
of you. God can provide miracles through the Spirit.
Col 1:29 Spirit empowers us-He transforms us into someone else. Energized by
the force of heaven.
Eph 4:13 Walk in love in every area of our lives.  Transforms everything about
us. Can't hate anybody. His heart in us causes us to endure.  God wants your
heart to be on fire.  Don't criticize-- pray for them.  For God so loved the world
that he gave....
Acts : We know what happened on the day of pentecost- rushing mighty wind.
God wants His power to hit this house.  Stand in the midst of a trial.

God will require.  Just follow Him. Until you are really serious you won't understand.
Do you mean business? Will you do it His way? Follow Him.
John 20: the wind blows where it will.
How can people know if we don't tell them? Tell them to come! All who are hungry.

This Rock Won't Move
Everything about God is foundational. He is a rock that
cannot be moved.  The Rock won't move!
Isaiah 28:16  God says I am the one who laid a foundation.
Psalm 118:2 Jesus is the Rock, cornerstone. The stone the
builder rejected has become the cornerstone.  This is the
Lord's doing.
If it's not of God, run from it.  With Him comes stability.
Serve God and He will make the path plain and He will
keep you one step ahead of the enemy. Satan cannot
cross the Bloodline.
Acts 4:11  God will do what He wants to do.
1.  The foundation of a building determines its strength.
2. There is longevity when you know who you are.
3. He is the cornerstone,.
4. Christ is that stone-always remember.
Acts 3:1-12
