Pastor David shows us that knowing God is the beginning of knowing our purpose.
Pastor David makes it very clear that it is the ordinances of the law, that made one guilty, that were blotted out when Jesus died on the cross. There is scripture upon scripture that shows us that the Law is no longer relevant to us under grace. We cannot establish our own righteousness. Jesus has abolished the law to bring us this wonderful grace which was his intention from the beginning!
Pastor David shows us what 2 Tim 2:15 means. The scripture says we should study to show ourselves approved. Being approved by God is not based by how much we study the word of God e.g like how a theologian studies the bible. Instead God is saying make haste, be diligent with what God has given you.
Pastor David debunks the idea that baptism must happen for sins to be forgiven. Baptism is an expression of our inner belief and when we get saved, we should then get baptised. However it is the belief in Jesus that brings about salvation not water baptism.
If you are not sure if you are loved by God listen to this message. Pastor David encourages and exhorts that Jesus loves us. There is nothing we can do that will cause God to love us more or less! Pastor David also explains that Hebrews 12:14 is not telling us that if we do not live holy we cannot guarantee our salvation, no, when we do not live holy lives then people cannot see God through us! Brethren God loves us so much that there are not conditions to our salvation. Let us be confident and sure that Jesus loves us!
Minister Danielle takes us to the last two verses of 2 Peter 1. Peter tells us that the word of God was not written from the will and human thoughts of man but inspired by the Holy Spirit. Brethren, we can trust the word wholly because it is from God. What a privilege it is to have God's word that we can live by and go to over and over again. Let us send time reading it and making it part of us.
Pastor David shows us through scripture that the Trinity is real and dispels the explanations of there being Jesus alone. God has revealed Himself as three distinct beings namely, Jesus, God the Father and the Holy Spirit. We see in Genesis where God said "Let us", proving that God is plural. We also see that Jesus was there in the beginning and it was Him that created everything. Brethren, the bible is clear that there are three distinct beings.
Pastor David explains that speaking in tongues is an evidence of salvation to the believer. It is an assurance to the believer that their names are written in the book of life. Hallelujah! The Spirit of God cannot be received by an unbeliever therefore if you have one of His gifts you must be a believer! For those of you who are saved but do not yet speak in tongues just pray and ask for it, pursue it and receive it in Jesus name.
Minister Patricia reminds us that to know and trust in the revealed word of God (in the bible) is more important than supernatural experiences or even physically seeing Jesus. The revealed word of God is a more sure testimony of God's truth. God has put his word above his name and because of such we should take heed of the word. The word of God has been proven to be reliable in that the manifestation of the prophecies of Jesus have come to pass. Let us not seek for experiences but seek to immerse ourselves in the word of God.
Pastor concludes the teachings on how to understand our purpose by taking us through various scriptures. By the end of this teaching you should have no doubt about what why you are here.
Pastor David shows us that the Old Testament Law is not relevant to us who are under Grace. The scriptures are clear that the law has been disanulled, it is useless and unprofitable! After listening to this there should be no doubt that the law is not for Christians today and hasn't been since the death of Jesus Christ.
