AUTO-CHRISTIANITY PT.3

 

God has a system in place where He expects us to mature and work that system.

2 Peter 1:2-4 NAS 2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 4 For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.

Many today are finding that asking their heavenly Father to do things isn’t working like it used to do

  • They’re taking it as defeat
  • They’re taking it as rejection
  • They’re forming personal doctrines causing doubt and unbelief

Many question the machine when they need to question the operator of the machine

The 3 stages of Christian life:

  1. Baby stage that will consist of two dynamics
  2. The learning years
  3. The adult or mature years
    • We can look at it like different planets:
  4. Planet Baby
  5. Planet Growth
  6. Planet Adult

Whatever planet you were raised on we must acclimate to our new Heavenly Father's planet's laws

    • Laws don't change

 

Let’s us look at some of the promises:

Matthew 17:19-20 NAS 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not drive it out?" 20 And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Matthew 21:21-22 NAS 21 And Jesus answered and said to them, "Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it will happen.  22 "And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive." 

Mark 9:22b-23 NAS But if You can do anything, take pity on us and help us!" 23 And Jesus said to him, " 'If You can?' All things are possible to him who believes."

Matthew 6:31-33 NAS 31 "Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing?'  32 "For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 

Romans 10:9 NAS that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved

1 John 1:9 NAS If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
