3-1-13 A Living Sacrifice
Marie, you said the people donít see the Holy Spirit gifts because they havenít presented their bodies a living sacrifice. The man to which Duncan referred to in John 9:36 who was healed without ever knowing who Christ was certainly hadnít presented his body a living sacrifice. He didnít know Christ, so why way he healed?
Well, I meant that, in order for these gifts to work through the one that was talking with them (who was it Ė Peter?) Praise God, that was praying for him. There the ones that were, that was walking, walking upright with the Lord. There was a time they wondered why they couldnít do it, Praise God. And Jesus told them, ďThese things come only but by fasting and prayer.Ē Ok, today, somehow people never go on a fast. They think thatís not important. Ok, thatís gone. I donít know why youíre wanting to think that youíve got to live in the past, or either in the future. But right now is the day, is the day of salvation. Right now is when we need Him, Praise God. So Iím not saying that the man wasnít Öhe had not given himself to the Lord. But the moment, Praise God, his faith went out there, he was healed. Praise God. Thatís got to be our faith. (What else, youíve got something else?)
The next one is for Duncan? Duncan, have you been baptized in the name of Jesus?
In one word answer, yes I have. [Audience claps]
[To audience. Letís hold those down please, weíre really not here to cheerlead, so letís not have those please.] Marie, this one is for you. The healing that was done, as claimed by you, did not say it was done by you but by God. This is my understanding. Support the brotherís claim, please comment.
