29 more days to Pentecost
(These are just only very brief notes. For the entire sermon, please listen in the link given at the bottom of the notes.)
Testimony from night before:
We were watching a movie. At the same time an orange appeared on the screen, brother Robert smelled my orange essential oil. NO coincidence! JESUS was proving his presence AND his blessing upon us watching this movie, to confirm the lessons of the movie, and to confirm his presence in this ministry.
Also, sister Kiki posted the bodily resurrection article, which was one of the original lessons God used that movie to teach/confirm to us. AND she also posted the exact same bible verse that I quoted during the movie! She posted both the article and the bible quote just minutes after we watched the movie!
Major confirmations like this happen on a regular basis!!! Miracles still happen!
#1167-1169 timid, dread, faithless, fearful, awe, respect, reverence, fear
2 Timothy 1:7 G1167 God gave not spirit of fear, but of power! Authority!
If not God, who?
Power & fear are opposites.
Revelation 21:8 Cowards/fearful will not enter into the kingdom.
Cowardice = death.
Matthew 8:26 1169
name + rank
We already have 2nd life, resurrected at baptism
Word #1167-1169 can be used in a positive sense or a negative sense. I gave examples of only the negative of 1167. But all 3 Greek words are synonyms (words with same meaning). And I did provide examples of good context in the other 2 Greek words. All 3 can be used positive or negative. All have same meanings.
Next word= #5399 Phobeo/Phobia - put to flight, fear, reverence, terrified, withdraw, avoid, flee, reverent obedience, awe, respect, reverence.
Psalms 23:4 Matthew 1:20 fear/phobia not to take Mary as wife.
Matthew 9:8 AWE-struck (Make your mouth drop in shock or fear or reverence. To be amazed at.)
10:26, 28, 21 Don't fear religious martyrdom.
14:22-30 fear of storms. Peter walking on water — didn't need Jesus to be right there to do it. We are spirits. Our flesh is our clothing.
We will testify God is fair. We will judge angels and people in the Judgment.
Authority to bless and curse.
(superstition = witchcraft. So don't say "bless you" after sneeze. That is taking words lightly and treating blessings like nothing. And saying it puts you into submission to witchcraft superstition and ritual.)
"Faith is the substance of things hoped for — things not yet seen."
Fear gives power to devil or God.
Fear of evil is submission to Islam.
Another wrongful fear example= Jonas — fail to preach when called.
Fail to worship/witness/act due to paranoid fear.
2125, 24-26 shyness, reserve, anxiety, caution, awe, respect, reverence, fear
Hebrews 11:7 Noah, fear of God to prepare for end of the world.
Exodus 3:6 Moses feared/reverence toward GOD.
Remove shoes: Respect holy ground, holy furniture, holy equipment, pulpit, candles etc used for the work of GOD.
Fear of God is righteous fear.
We should not reverence evil, the devil, evil symbols, evil pictures, persecution, etc. Use wisdom and caution YES, reject evil, but not fear.
Wrongful fear results in death because it gives the devil power, it worships the devil, and it weakens you. GOD is building His Army and His Kingdom. His Kingdom will NOT be full of wimps, weak people, cowards.
"Suck it up Buttercup". Life is hard. Face it. embrace it. Live it. Endure scars. endure to the end.
Go to get a forehead flint/rock/toughness. Get to get tougher/stronger emotionally/mentally/spiritually AND physically. VERY difficult times are coming! Prepare mentally NOW!
