Faith - sermon notes.

Written by Hannes Wessels

Have you ever taken a child shopping for a toy? Sometimes they know exactly what they want, sometimes they jump from one item torepparttar next loving something and then dropping it forrepparttar 139340 next toy that is shinier or more interesting. With shiny eyes they look at you and say “Please daddy” but you are not sure what they really want.

The Bible says in Mark 11:23 “Whoever says to this mountain ‘ Be removed and cast intorepparttar 139341 sea’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says”.

Faith changes us, believing makes us act differently. When we have asked God something it is done! All we have to do is walk into it. We often are just like children asking God for this then changing asking God for that and often we are not dedicated to our prayers. James 1: 6-8 says that a double minded man will receive nothing. Faith changes us not God. God is alwaysrepparttar 139342 same. Faith moves God but does not change Him. Faith pleases God but His character staysrepparttar 139343 same.

We have many mountains before us at Eastcoast but we have Jesus and we must have faith. We must have faith in our personal lives and we must have faith in our corporate body. Nothing will happen without single minded determination to seerepparttar 139344 will of God unfold in this place.

Bearing fruit in 2005

Written by Ps Hannes Wessels

God has called each one of us to bear fruit. Fruit is very specific in that it tastes best atrepparttar right time. If you eat fruit like grapes to early, it will be sour and hard, eat it to late and it is overripe and terrible.

So bearing fruit atrepparttar 139339 right time inrepparttar 139340 spiritual realm is important. We must be able to discernrepparttar 139341 times and know whatrepparttar 139342 Holy Spirit is saying for now.

Seasons come and go over every nation, city, church, business and individual. It is your responsibility to know what isrepparttar 139343 time onrepparttar 139344 spiritual clock of Jesus for a specific time.

Today we will look at Joseph and see how he could discernrepparttar 139345 times and influence nations.

People hated Joseph and often did him in for instance his brothers, Pothifar’s wife, andrepparttar 139346 butler. God viewed him differently. Genesis 39

vers 2: The Lord was with Joseph and he was a successful man. ( Even though he was a slave) All he did prospered in his hand. vers 5: The Lord blessedrepparttar 139347 Egyptians house because Joseph was in it. vers 21: The Lord was with Joseph and showed him mercy. (Even though he was in prison) vers 23: whatever he did,repparttar 139348 Lord made it prosper. This super natural blessing combined withrepparttar 139349 hard work Col. 3:22-25 and patience that Joseph had resulted in him being blessed at all times. He resisted temptation many times. Jas. 4:7; 2 Tim 2:22 He maintained his supernatural blessing it did not matter where he was, in prison, as a slave or wherever.

He could really discernrepparttar 139350 times.. 1 Cor 4:1-2, Math 16:3. It resulted in blessing for those surrounding him Do we haverepparttar 139351 same result on our places of work?
