Taking Heed Lest We Fall - Radical Transformations

Taking Heed and giving examples of encounters and transfromations of people in Scripture.  We never know what people have been through.  With what measure we meet in judgement, it will be measured back to us.  Getting closer to Jesus changes everything.

Show Notes:

Comparing ourselves is not wise 2 Cor 10:12;
There seems to always be a new sin;
Some people are convicted about things others are not James 4:17;
Isaiah's encounter in Isaiah 6;
Paul's transformation Acts 9;
Zaccheus' transformation Luke 19;
The disciples scattered before the Spirit;
Jesus is the Only Way to the Father John 14:6;
Jesus is the Word John 1;
God is a spirit and must be worshiped in Spirit John 4:24;
The Spirit breathed the Word

Christianity should not enchained by religion but set apart as a spirit filled body to receive and release the radical life transforming encounters of Jesus Christ.

Defeatist Mentality? or More than Conquerors?

Many people are prisoners of their conditioned belief system. Have you ever had a defeatist attitude about something because you failed a few times?

Pro 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he;...

If we constantly think that we are a loser, or we can't achieve something, then that is actually going to be the case. We prophesy our own demise by our limited beliefs.

Have you ever wondered why huge elephants won't ever break away from their ropes?  It is because of their conditioned belief system.

Elephants are tied to a stake with a large rope when they are young and they are not strong enough to break away. They try over and over but then eventually give up and resolve that the rope and peg is too much for them.  They resolve in their minds that it will always be this way.  Their beliefs are conditioned or 'conformed'  by their trainers.

When the elephants grow older, everyone but them seems to know that they can easily bust out of the prison of their own thinking.

Jesus changes things. He encourages us to have faith in God that causes people to raise the dead, cast out demons, walk on water and even Greater Works!

God wants us to transform our minds into HIS WAY of thinking!

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Look at what Jesus says we can do if we "Have faith in GOD! "

Mark 11:22-23 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

What is a limiting belief you used to have that Faith in God broke you free of?
