The Church’s Rock Anthem — The Rock Of Personal Revelation!
–The Bible says: “Simon Peter answered, ‘You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.’ Jesus replied, ‘Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in Heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.'”
–Direct, personal, supernatural revelation from the living God rocks your life with ongoing, radical transformation and builds you together with others as “living stones” creating Christ’s (not a man’s) church!
God spoke & God speaks! Much of what God spoke in the past is written in the Bible.
–According to the Bible: “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes (present tense, not past tense) from the mouth of God.”
–Therefore, in obedience to the Bible, we need to listen to God directly speak to us in the present! Like the old hymn says: “He speaks, and the sound of His voice is so sweet the birds hush their singing.”
–Maybe we could set aside time in church meetings to allow people to listen to God and then share what He tells them. His present words will release His power and presence in amazing ways. Try it and see!
Who is the world’s best spiritual guide/preacher/speaker?
–The Bible says: “When He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on His own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come.”
–For Christ-followers the Holy Spirit is the best Guide cause He’s speaking on the inside!
