LIVING BEYOND IMPOSSIBLE
SERIES BIO: The Biblical narrative implies that a normal relationship with God includes miracle interventions. This is promised through Jesus' teachings, creating a vision that "all things are possible" to those who walk with God. If the miraculous, rising above even impossible situations, is the normative for the Christian, then how are we to activate such realities? How are we to encounter God, live in greater freedom and see Bible-level miracles happen for us? This Sunday we begin a several week series of teachings that will inspire, impact and infuse God's great heart of hope.
Do you have
any IMPOSSIBILITIES in your life,
that if became POSSIBLE,
would ALLEVIATE SUFFERING?
MATTHEW 17:20 NKJV [Jesus said] …for assuredly, I say to you, if you have FAITH AS A MUSTARD SEED, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU.
MARK 9:23 NKJV Jesus said to him, "If you can BELIEVE, ALL THINGS [ARE] POSSIBLE to him who BELIEVES."
HOW DO MIRACLES HAPPEN?
- I don’t believe that miracles are LIMITED to RANDOM ACTS of GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY.
- I believe miracles are PRE-EXISTING POTENTIALS, accomplished in CHRIST’S REDEMPTION, ACTIVATED by our engagement of SPIRITUAL LAW.
- When miracles DON’T HAPPEN, it ISN’T because of LIMITATIONS in GOD’S SOVEREIGN-DESIRE, NOR our lack of SPIRITUAL BRAWN; BUT a lack of understanding of EXISTING SPIRITUAL LAW.
“A miracle is an event brought about by the power of God that is a temporary exception to the ordinary course of nature for the purpose of showing that God has acted in history.”
– Dr. Richard L. Purtill, professor of philosophy, Western Washington University
