17 Dec 2018 Philippians (Program #43)

Philippians (Program #43) -Christ, Salvation, the Word of God and Life

Does God only want to save us from perdition? Or does He also want to save us moment by moment and day by day?  Salvation from eternal perdition is wonderful. But after we are saved eternally we need a daily practical salvation.  Stay with us for some practical fellowship today to help us in our Christian walk every day.

We are going to focus on the pattern that Christ set up for us and is described in Philippians by the apostle Paul.  more…

Philippians (Program #42) -Doing Everything in the Name of the Lord by Being Saturated with His Riches

What did the apostle mean when he said “I am able to do all things in Him Who empowers me” in Philippians 4:13.  Wouldn’t you like to know the secret?

Despite what it says in the Bible, we have a different way that we tend to hear it.  We like to hear it “I am able to do all things through Him”, but this says “I am able to do all things IN Him, who empowers me.”  The apostle Paul uses  similar phrase in Colossians 3:17 “whatever you do in word or in deed, do all things in the name of the Lord Jesus.”  What we are going to explore what it means to be in His name, what it means to be in Him and to be in the name of the Lord Jesus.

This matter been in the Lord’s name, praying in His name, doing things in His name is greatly misunderstood. This message, this fellowship would unload us of some concepts that really hinder us in our experience with the Lord just from our misunderstanding of this phrase “in His name” or “in Him”.

We were thinking that in such a verse where God is really promising there to do something outside of us somehow to make us strong enough that we are able to do the things that we are trying to do.  But it is very different as what we are going to see today.  It’s not just tagging His name onto something, but it’s really been one with Him.

Daniel (Program #14) – The Visions of the Overcoming Daniel (4)

The prophet Daniel is often held up as an example of what a godly person should be like.  He was faithful, obedient, diligent and steadfast and he also prayed much. Surely this was one of the giants of the Old Testament.  But not only so, he received visions from God about future events and experienced dramatic miracles.  It is easy to esteem and envy such a one. But of all his attributes, it is his prayer life that serves as the top example.  Because Daniel knew the secret of how to approach the righteous and holy God. He knew never to approach God on the basis of his righteousness and good deeds.  But rather according to God’s compassion and mercy.  Whereas most people take their own need and desires as the focus of their prayer. Daniel prayed always according to God’s Word and God’s need rather than his own. How did God answer such meaningful and effective prayer.  Well, the answer comes from Daniel chapter 9 in the vision of the seventy weeks.
