Questions: Have you ever prayed, “Lord, use me”? If so, you need to read the 27 points below. Our time line is known as the Church age, similar to Israel preparing to leave Egypt or Joshua preparing to cross Jordan River. Yes, requires Believing, Responding plus Involvement. Our “new day” is not “new plan”.
Yes, God’s plan has 6 parts: 1st Introduce people to Jesus. 2nd Help others get saved. 3rd Get water baptized. 4th Get Holy Ghost baptized. 5th Get more involved in His plan. 6th Help Him keep others connected in relationships, by teaching them the next 7 things.
First, Don’t go backwards. Second, leave the past and focus on future. Third, help others step into His victory team on earth, called Church. [Josh 3:15]. Forth, accept & trust Him totally. Fifth, keep or faith in His faithfulness during our up’s & downs. Six, realize that Satan is going to try and stop us. Seven, know Jesus offers us power through His nine Spiritual gifts in 1 Corinthians 12: Wisdom – Knowledge – Faith – Healing – Miracles – Prophecy – Discerning spirits – Tongues & Interpretation of tongues.
Apostle Paul added five more strategy points: 1) it’s not over tell God says. 2) Quitting is not an option. 3) Nothing can defeat us without our permission. 4) May get knocked down but don’t stay down. 5) Is not the obstacles that destroy us, it’s our attitude that creates destruction.
So who is qualified to receive God’s Spirit? Not just certain types of people, nor types of religious organization. Scriptures point to individual who truly believe and trust in Jesus. Ezekiel 36:26-27 says: a new heart I will give you, and new spirit within you: I will take away a stony heart and give a heart of flesh and put My Spirit in you so you can walk in My statutes, keeping My judgments and doing them.
“YOU” is referred to seven times. If YOU are born into this world and die, plus born again John 14:26 tells us the Comforter is Holy Ghost, who teaches us all things. Rom 10:9 adds: confess and believe. Mark 16:16 refers to individuals who are baptized. Rom 15:13 says: God fills us with joy and peace when we believe, we can have individual blessings of God.
Apostle Peter preached first Church message. People responded asking: “What shall I do?” Peters answer [Acts 2:37-39] “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in name of Jesus Christ for remission of sins; and you shall receive Holy Spirit, the promise is to you and your children, and all, as many as the Lord God will call.”
Jesus’ Salvation and Life is really not that difficult to understand. Today the world seems to be looking for someone who can answer their question: “What shall I do?” Yes, they are looking for an answer on “what to do”? The problem is that they don’t realize that their answer is in Jesus’ salvation and kingdom. Yes again, the Holy Spirit was given to the Body of Christ to share with others, individually and corporately. It is also true that true believers are the answer this lost world is looking for. Jesus” body called the church is open to receive all who want to join Him. We live in best time of greatest opportunity for entire world ever known.
Also, but sadly there are Christian who are not aware of their greatest position, helping Jesus’ return! God part is that many, many church organization are realizing that the body of Christ must be connected, as anybody needs to be connected, if unusable. There’s two areas of life: One is with God, and One is without God, no other ending.
