Substitution 101

Jesus’ spiritual, physical and emotional punishment was Him bearing the curse — the curse of spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical punishment of sin. His resurrection was so we can obtain and share in the same eternal life that He obtained by the resurrection. That eternal life, zoe in Greek, is life as God has it,Continue reading “Substitution 101”

What Jesus Bore

Jesus bore and took all of our physical, emotional, and mental weaknesses, infirmities, and sicknesses in His body. He bore and carried our spiritual death, sins, and iniquities with His death. Spiritual death is separation from God. Spiritual death is the absence of spiritual life. God is life. “For David says concerning Him:I foresaw theContinue reading “What Jesus Bore”

Concerning Spiritual: (13) Interpretation of Tongues

God, through the apostle Paul, tells us that He doesn’t want us to be ignorant of spiritual things: “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant” (1 Corinthians 12:1). Yet, so many of us are completely in the dark about the gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit. What aContinue reading “Concerning Spiritual: (13) Interpretation of Tongues”

Satanic Influence

“The ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me” (John 14:30). There is the obvious reason this verse is important. It means Jesus is without sin and can be the our sin substitute. Yet, I’ve come to see a deeper side to this statement. First lets take a look at somethingContinue reading “Satanic Influence”

Concerning Spiritual: (12) Tongues — For Private and Public Use

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, toContinue reading “Concerning Spiritual: (12) Tongues — For Private and Public Use”

Now Concerning Spiritual: (11) Tongues — An Initial Experience

I’ve saved tongues and interpretation of tongues for last. There’s a lot of misunderstanding and ignorance with tongues, because Satan has attacked this gift probably more than any other. If we allow the devil to keep us in the dark, our most valuable prayer gift will be stopped. We’ll also have to break this intoContinue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (11) Tongues — An Initial Experience”

Now Concerning Spiritual: (10) Prophecy

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, toContinue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (10) Prophecy”

Now Concerning Spiritual: (9) The discerning of Spirits

So, we’ve covered the first two revelation gifts — the gift of the word of wisdom and the gift of the word of knowledge. Today we will cover the third of the gifts that reveal something. These gifts reveal something that we couldn’t know in the natural. They’re given as the Spirit wills, and weContinue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (9) The discerning of Spirits”

Now Concerning Spiritual: (8) The Word of Knowledge

The first of the revelation gifts that we studied was the word of wisdom. We’ll continue our study with the second of the three gifts that reveal something – the word of knowledge. The word of knowledge is a supernatural revelation by God’s Spirit of certain facts in the mind of God. The reason whyContinue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (8) The Word of Knowledge”

Asking In Jesus’ Name

I hear so many praying to Jesus instead of the Father. Is this correct? Of course it’s fine to speak to Jesus, but is it Biblical to be asking Jesus for our needs to be met? Or should we be asking the Father? I feel like I’m stepping on toes with this one. Discussing BibleContinue reading “Asking In Jesus’ Name”
