Text: Acts 9:1-20   (King James Version) When Saul became Paul

  "Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people."

                            The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
C.H. Spurgeon said, "If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;"

 

Isaiah 46:5   To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?

 

Deuteronomy 32:39   See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

Deuteronomy 32:40   For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.

 

Let's pray. Father,

Open my eyes so I can see Your truth.

Open my ears so I can hear Your voice.
Open my mind so I can understand Your Word.
And open my heart so I may receive all that You want me to receive. AMEN

 

Christians have an endless hope, but this world has a hopeless end. A great cloud of pessimism and hopelessness covers the earth. A group of Students were asked their philosophy of life and answered: Life is a punishment for the crime of being born. Life is a disease for which the only cure is death. The theory of evolution leaves man without hope. Godless philosophies leave people empty inside. Atheism is supposed to close the door on God but instead it leaves man incomplete and inwardly void. No wonder scores of people end their life each day.

 

If you have the riches of this world and not Jesus you have nothing! If you have nothing in this world But Jesus you have everything!

 

The Good news tonight is that if God is for you than who is it that can stand against you?

 

I came to prophesy to someone tonight that God is turning some things around for you! The enemy has set the stage to destroy you and even has you beginning to believe he just might succeed.  But God says take your eyes off the physical. Take your thoughts off the natural and for I the Lord am not subject to the natural the natural is subject to me! I the Lord the Holy one that inhabiteth eternity am not subject to the physical the physical is subject to me! See I am turning the tables even now as my prophet speaks and the very thing that has plagued you with torment and anxiety is being destroyed from off you and your family right now! See I have spoken it and it must come to pass!

 

Romans 8:31   What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:32   He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Romans 8:33   Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

Romans 8:34   Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Romans 8:35   Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Romans 8:36   As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Romans 8:37   Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Romans 8:38   For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Romans 8:39   Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

I know many, many people are facing what appears to be an impossible situation!

But with our God according to Luke nothing shall be impossible.

 

Luke 1:37   For with God nothing shall be impossible.

 

Daniel 3:28   Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.

Daniel 3:29   Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.

 

1 Kings 17:14   For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.

1 Kings 17:15   And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.

 

1 Kings 17:16   And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.

 

John 11:39   Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

John 11:40   Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

John 11:41   Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

John 11:42   And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

John 11:43   And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

John 11:44   And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

 

The Israelites crossing the Red Sea!

 

The Axe head swimming back to the surface.

 

The fire of God on the Prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel.

 

Jonah in the belly of a fish.

 

Little David facing off Goliath.

 

Daniel in a den of Hungry Lions.

 

The walls of Jericho falling down at the praise of Gods people.

 

Romans 14:11   For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

 

The Enemy has us mesmerized into thinking God is no longer the God of the impossible.

 

John 10:10   The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
