Seed Thoughts

05 May WOF Pic10Seed Thoughts //Lynette Hagin

"The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be Like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." -Isaiah 58:11 (NIV)

THIS MONTH we in the United States set aside a day to honor mothers. I was born on Mother's Day. I would always tell my mother that she got the best mother's day present that year. She would just smile and agree. A mother's job is to watch over, nourish, and train her children. This job starts the day she finds that she has conceived. It seems that it is just a built-in mechanism from the Lord. I have referred to the Proverbs 31 woman many times, but it is always important to review those things. This year let's look at some of those verses in the Message Bible. For lack of space, I will not include the whole passage.


Winter Bible Seminar Review

05 May WOF Pic8The World Came Home!

People came from across the U.S. and around the world to attend Winter Bible Seminar & Rhema Worldwide Homecoming 2014. Angola, Ukraine, Australia, Thailand, Argentina, Pakistan, India—39 countries were represented, with Brazil's delegation of 185 the largest. Each service was translated simultaneously into six languages, the most ever for this event. It was a glorious time of refreshing and impartation.
Here's a sampling of what those present heard.


Faith. Plain and Simple


Often when I minister on faith, I use scriptures that most of the congregation can already easily quote. I once asked the Lord to give me a fancy scripture—one that people would hear and say, "I didn't know that was in the Bible!"

The Lord never gave me any new verses, though. He just said, "Once people actually understand what they know, then we can move further. But until then, we can't go any further."

I've discovered that many Christians can quote a lot of scriptures on faith, but they don't know how to use their faith. They start out in faith, but something happens along the way and they step out of faith.


Man & Miracles

05 May WOF Pic7Timeless Teachings  //Kenneth E. Hagin

Man was created by a supernatural God and was designed to live in God's supernatural realm on this earth.

If you are a believer, your spirit was made a new creation supernaturally in the new birth. If you are Spirit-filled, you were supernaturally filled with the Holy Spirit and were given supernatural utterance in other tongues by that same Holy Ghost.

You can live a supernatural life in Christ by maintaining a supernatural prayer life. One way to develop your spirit is by praying much in other tongues.

Not only will praying in tongues develop your spirit, it will also help bring the supernatural power of God into manifestation.


Faith: Some Maintenance Required

05 May WOF Pic5Campmeeting Speaker Highlight //Charles Cowan

I've heard it said that faith will never remain status quo. It'll either grow or go. In other words, you can reach a level in your faith, but you won't be there forever. To maintain the level of faith you're on and progress to the next level, some faith maintenance is required.

You see, as born-again believers, we can't just give attention to feeding our spirits. That's important, but we also have a soul (mind, will, and emotions) and live in a body. To live a sanctified life of faith, we have to do something with them as well.

First Thessalonians 5:23 says, "The very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." That word sanctify—in its simplest definition—means "to set apart." So you could say, "The very God of peace set you apart—wholly." God desires us to set our whole being apart unto Him!
