I WILL ARISE
Luk 15:17 “Humiliated, the son finally realized what he was doing and he thought, ‘There are many workers at my father’s house who have all the food they want with plenty to spare. They lack nothing. Why am I here dying of hunger, feeding these pigs and eating their slop? I want to go back home to my father’s house, and I’ll say to him, “Father, I was wrong. I have sinned against you. I’ll never be worthy to be called your son. Please, Father, just treat me like one of your employees.”’
WE NEED TO SEE MORE SPIRITUAL GIFTS IN ACTION
A CHOICE HAS TO BE MADE
1Co 2:12 But we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit from God, so that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God.
1Co 2:13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Co 2:14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1Co 2:15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged by no one. (JESUS)
1Co 2:16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Jos 24:15 “If you decide that it’s a bad thing to worship GOD, then choose a god you’d rather serve–and do it today. Choose one of the gods your ancestors worshiped from the country beyond The River, or one of the gods of the Amorites, on whose land you’re now living. As for me and my family, we’ll worship GOD.” (Message)
I WILL ARISE!
Luk 15:18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, Father, I have sinned against Heaven and before you
ARISE = TO ABIDE, TO STAND UP, TO ACCOMPLISH, ESTABLISH
Pro 24:16 for a just one falls seven times, and rises up again; but the wicked shall fall into evil.
Eph 5:14 Therefore he says, “Awake, sleeping ones! And arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.”
Rom 6:5-6 For since we are permanently grafted into him to experience a death like his, then we are permanently grafted into him to experience a resurrection like his and the new life that it imparts.
Could it be any clearer that our former identity is now and forever deprived of its power? For we were co-crucified with him to dismantle the stronghold of sin within us, so that we would not continue to live one moment longer submitted to sin’s power.
1Jn 2:20 But the Holy One has anointed you and you all know the
1Co 2:1 -10 My brothers and sisters, when I first came to proclaim to you the secrets of God, I refused to come as an expert, trying to impress you with my eloquent speech and lofty wisdom. For while I was with you I was determined to be consumed with one topic—Jesus, the crucified Messiah. I stood before you feeling inadequate, filled with reverence for God, and trembling under the sense of the importance of my words. The message I preached and how I preached it was not an attempt to sway you with persuasive arguments but to prove to you the almighty power of God’s Holy Spirit. For God intended that your faith not be established on man’s wisdom but by trusting in his almighty power. Wisdom from God However, there is a wisdom that we continually speak of when we are among the spiritually mature. It’s wisdom that didn’t originate in this present age, nor did it come from the rulers of this age who are in the process of being dethroned. Instead, we continually speak of this wonderful wisdom that comes from God, hidden before now in a mystery. It is his secret plan, destined before the ages, to bring us into glory. None of the rulers of this present world order understood it, for if they had, they never would have crucified the Lord of shining glory. This is why the Scriptures say:
Things never discovered or heard of before,\ things beyond our ability to imagine — these are the many things God has in store for all his lovers.
But God now unveils these profound realities to us by the Spirit. Yes, he has revealed to us his inmost heart and deepest mysteries through the Holy Spirit, who constantly explores all things
WHAT ARE THE DEEP THINGS?
Eph 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
Eph 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
1Co 2:2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
