Mt Deliverance Worship Center sermon. What a powerful morning! My daughter got hit with two visions at the end of church when the pastor was anointing with oil and praying for members.
The first was a flower bud where a petal peeled back, turning into a Christian as it did so. And then more petals pulled back into a flower that then represented the church.
The second was a heart that looked like a shield with beautiful inscribed swirls. She said she felt that God was the protector of our hearts.
Philippians 4:7 – “and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Psalm 73:26 – “My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
When we call upon the name of Jesus, is it cliche? Or are we calling on Him fully, the name above all names, the name of salvation, the only one who saves.
How do we please God? By accomplishing everything on earth He gave us to do.
Bethel – the place of dreams, visions, and angel visits. Jacob’s ladder was a stop on a journey. Bethel is not a place to claim we are done, it is encouragement to keep going, not to stop. There should be signs following you.
When you lay hands on, you should be shocked if they aren’t healed. Sometimes it takes a storm to perfect our faith. God will lead us through the wolf, lion, and bear before a giant.
God will speak through dreams and visions to get us back on the right road. He speaks to others as well (Pontius Pilate’s wife)
We must not forget that our prayers and alms are recognized in heaven even before salvation. As He led Cornelius to Peter. God led the whole thing. He saved Cornelius and He taught Peter, and everyone in the house was baptized in the Holy Ghost.
God calls a person into a direction, and then guides along the way, as Saul was called and then converted on the road.
Hebrews 1:14 – Angel minister to those who are saved.
