Mondays I am going to be posting what our church went over on the previous Sunday. My readers/followers do not have to read this, this is just something that I can look back on in the future 🙂 But if you want to read and comment feel free.
17. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
~ not meat and drink = not eating or drinking natural things.
~ Inside You
18. For he that in these things serveth Christ (is) acceptable to God, and approved of men.
~Christ – Son of God – Spirit & Truth
19. Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
~ born again – spirit seed born again
~ Holy Ghost doesn’t convict you of sin. He convicts you of unrighteousness. You are made righteous – you have to learn how to receive it.
Feelings = Tell your soul to shut up! (loved that saying)
Your feelings are your soul…
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
~ Heart man believeth = spirit man
~God will come to convict that you are lost. He will draw you to the door. Either you have to reject or receive it. Believe it. Your soul & mind has to be renewed about God’s word.
And if ye (be) Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
~ Everyone is not of Christ. You have to accept Jesus & follow Christ.
~Abraham’s seed – seed of Christ.
For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, (was) not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
~You have to learn to do righteous. If you believe in it then do it. If you believe God will heal you then believe in it. He HAS to heal me.
~Peace = salvation
LORD, tho wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.
~Quit trying to please God on the outside, and do what is right on the inside.
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
~Speak to the evil – Don’t let the evil touch you.
~You have spirit control.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
~ Spiritual peace
And the peace of God, which passeth all understand, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
~no law – because it has been filled.
~ God has already dealt with our sins.
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
~Christ in you, spirit in you, you are the temple (Holy Ghost)
~You once was lost, but now you are found.
~God dealt with sin – past, present, and future.
And they were all filled
with in the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
~You are baptized in the Holy Ghost.
For he that in these things serveth Christ (is) acceptable to God, and approved of men.
~things = righteousness, peace, and joy
~acceptable to God = God is not mad at you.
II Corinthians 5: 9-10
9. Wherefore we labour, that, wheather present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
10. For we must all appear before judgement seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things (done) in (his) body, according to that he hath done, wheather (it be) good or bad.
~God has already dealt with your sin. You are going to be judged of the Holy Ghost. God will see you as the blood of the seed.
~The lack you are supposed to be doing.
~Good = Kingdom, peace, joy, Holy Ghost
~Bad = What you do with it.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
~Kingdom of God = righteousness, peace, joy and Holy Ghost.
**These are the notes I took on this past Sunday.
I will not push religion on anyone, so please don’t take this as that.
