July 22, 2018 “Strength for Your Testimony”

“Strength for Your Testimony”

Revelation 12:11 (NKJV) And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

Hebrews11:1-2 (NKJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.

Isaiah 43 (NKJV) 43 But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. 3 For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place.

In this sermon we will continue to look at trusting God when it is not so easy. I will make reference again to Elizabeth Elliot and glean from her words from her book, “Trusting God in a Twisted World”.

(Statement from Elizabeth Elliot) {It is a matter of obedience. In other words, if you are the one deeply longing for help, there are answers-answers which will please God and enable you to do his will. Will they "work"? you ask. The answer is yes-in terms of the Kingdom. But be careful. The disciple cannot test the answers in terms of earthly success or satisfaction or solutions.}

See you in worship this week,

Pastor Harvey
