Part of the Spiritual Gifts series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Q: Would you say yes to my yes?
1 Cor 12:7-11 Each believer is given ... for the benefit of all. Wisdom, knowledge. The bible says to desire these gifts. "I want it", like desiring a sugar fix! We need that thing so much, we'll do whatever we can to get it.
The Lord's prayer. We're praying ... your Kingdom come. One of the ways the kingdom comes is through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The character of the nature of God looks like on us - the fruits of the Spirit, but the gifts are given to bring the kingdom of God.
Today: Prophecy. Vs 10. Ask for gift, given that gift, learn how to exercise that gift, and then step out in that gift.
Psalm 27:1-4. The Lord is my light and my salvation. The Lord is the stronghold of my life. God says I am going to break you out of your history. Picture yourself in front of God, and he says "I am your light, and I am going to be your salvation". See your heavenly Father before you, and he holds the torch, and he is going to lead you and guide you in your life. Whom shall I fear - the Lord of all creation is with us!
Vs2 When evil men advance against me, they will stumble and fall because they can't stand God's presence in us. You don't have to fear, stand with God.
Prophecy - Shirley.
Psalm 27:4 - One thing I crave from God, one thing I seek above all else... I want to live my life so close to him that he takes pleasure in my every prayer. (TPT) Desire.
2 Peter 1:20-21. Interpretation of prophecy requires the Holy Spirit for it does not originate from our own imagnination, but it inspired by the Holy Spirit. A word, thought, picture. Inspired by God, but it needs us to work with God.
1 Cor 14:3-5. He who prophecies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort. edifies the church. Srtrenghten, encourage, comfort. Judge the spirit of it. Is it confusing? Going against God's word?
1 Cor 14:1. Be enthusiastic and passionate about spiritual gifts. If there is a blockage, God wants to remove that blockage, but we need to speak to it. God asks: Can I use you to strengthen, to encourage, to comfort others?
