    Day 26: Spiritual Authority

    Affirmation #8 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:19-20)             The next two chapters will deal with the same basic topic. This chapter will deal more with the source of the power or authority and examples of that authority. The next chapter will deal with the blessing of the power coming upon us. What Bible students often miss is that some things are done through…

    Day 27: Anointing Of The Holy Spirit

    Affirmation #9 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:” (John 16:7-8)             From a very young age, I understood death and loss. When I was around four years old I had this fear that my mom was going to die. Since I never was around my dad much, she was all that I had as a parent. I felt this so…

    Day 28: Gifts & Giving

    Affirmation #10 “And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (Luke 11:9-10)             Most have heard the story of the Samaritan woman that Jesus meets at the well. Upon sitting on the well to take a break, He asks for a drink of water from her. She brings up how Jews and Samaritans don’t deal with each other. Then we hear this most amazing statement from Jesus. “Jesus answered and said unto her,…

    Day 29: Peace

    Affirmation #11 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.” (John 14:27-28)             “My Peace I give to You, Not as the World Gives!” For us to understand His peace, we need to start with the point He makes. “Not as the world gives.” Jesus is creating a contrast…

    You Are Invited!

    It would be a mistake to think that everyone reading this is a Christian. Maybe you started reading because of the title. Maybe someone told you about it. No matter how it came into your possession, I believe it was God’s plan. I cannot believe someone would read a book of this type, this deep, and not be called by God. Jesus tells us, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” (Joh 6:37) Jesus also tells us, “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I…

    Precepts Intro

    To be as He is, we must be as He was! Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”(Matthew 16:24)             What we will receive in heaven has been uncovered with the “Proclamations.” We have studied what has been given us now through the “Affirmations.” The focus has been directed towards what Jesus is giving us, just as the Father has given Him. So we can be like Him, or to be as He is. We end this journey with the “Precepts.” Again we learn how to be…

    Day 30: Light Of The World

    Precept #1 “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” (John 9:5)             Here we are about to study our first “Precept.” They are what Jesus has called us to do to be like Him, right now. We are to continue the work He started until the day of His return. With that said, I want to share two of the most beautiful verses about Jesus being the “Light of the World.” The first one says; “The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.” (Mat 4:16)…
