  • SPIRITUAL APPLICATIONS

 

  1. THE SPIRIT, THE WORD, AND WHOLENESS.

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT AND WHOLENESS

MATTHEW 3: 11-12

JOHN 16: 8-9

ONE OF THE FUNCTIONS THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES IN OUR LIVES IS TO CONVICT US OF THE SIN THAT STILL EXISTS. WHEN WE PRAY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT WE ARE RELEASING THE HOLY SPIRIT  TO CONVICT US OF THE SIN IN OUR LIVES.

2 CORINTHIANS 3: 17-18

  • THE WORD OF GOD AND WHOLENESS

 

EPHESIANS 5: 26-27

THE WORD OF GOD GIVES US INSTRUCTION IN EVERY AREA OF OUR LIVES AS TO HOW WE SHOULD BE CONFORMED INTO THE IMAGE OF CHRIST.

MATTHEW 18: 19-20

WHEN WE COME INTO AGREEMENT WITH THE WORD AND THE SPIRIT, MIGHTY THINGS BEGIN TO BREAK LOOSE IN OUR LIVES.

 

 

  • THE HOLY SPIRIT AND DESTINY

 

EPHESIANS 1: 17-19

GOD SPEAKS TO US IN MANY WAYS THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT TO REVEAL TO US OUR WONDERFUL DESTINY WE HAVE IN HIM. HE HAS CALLED EACH OF US WITH A HOLY CALLING THAT IS ACCORDING TO HIS OWN PURPOSE.

  • THE WORD OF GOD AND DESTINY

 

WHEN WE WALK IN THE WORD AND THE SPIRIT, IT OPENS US UP TO OUR DESTINY IN A FAR GREATER MEASURE THAN ANY OTHER WAY WE HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED IN THE PAST.

2 PETER 1: 17-21

THE WORD OF GOD KEEPS US ON COURSE IN THE MIDST OF THE HOLY SPIRIT INDUCED EXPERIENCES. IT KEEPS US MOVING FORWARD IN THE PURPOSE OF GOD AND OUR DESTINY.

CLOSING

THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE WORD PARTNERING TOGETHER WILL PRODUCE CONVICTION, REPENTANCE, DELIVERANCE, HARVEST, STEADFASTNESS, COMMITMENT TO THE BODY LIFE, TOTAL COMMITMENT AND FAVOR WITH UNBELIEVERS AS WELL AS BEING LAUNCHED INTO YOUR DESTINY AND BECOMING WHOLE.
