If you live by the flesh you are attracted to the things of this world. if you live by the Holy Spirit then you will seek higher things. When you ask Jesus into your life, then there is change in a second of time. Jesus wants to set you free today from anything that has a hold on you. God says there is a better way. There is no peace in the heart of a sinner. Jesus said "I died for you and I want you to live for me." Then there is Baptism, it's a form of burial signifying our old life is put to rest and we are raised into new life. We recognise we are dead to sin, now we start to live for Jesus, walking in newness of life. Jesus paid the price, death has no dominion over Christ and neither does it have dominion over us. If you are truly born again sin shall no longer dominate your life.
Don Michael spoke on gratitude. 'No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.' 1Thessalonians 5:18. Thankfulness produces fruit in our lives. Giving thanks is an act of humility. “In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.” ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer. We need to have gratitude in our hearts for what Jesus has done for us, we must not ever take it for granted.
Pastor Chris said God can raise a man to the throne to be king or He could take the throne away from a king. Daniel 2:36-45 and Daniel 7:2-7 & 24-27.God uses godly and ungodly men to make things happen for an outcome that He wants. God is able to overturn the decrees of men. Daniel 3:11-26. It is God who determines the prophetic calendar/allotted time for everything. Everything is under God's control and it's God who determines what shall be. Acts 1:7, 1 Timothy 6:15. Don't take on for yourselves the traditions of man. Search the scriptures for the truth. All that which is biblical truth the Devil has tried to convince believers it's heresy.
