The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple. Psalms 119:130 NKJV
"THE CHURCH AND THE GOVERNMENT"
Good citizenship calls for us to do a number of things in our society, but I want to talk to you about where the power of a Christian to make a difference really lies. It is in the spreading of the gospel of Christ. Right now, many people are thinking, “If we could just get this person, or that person, elected to office, things would be so much better.” Christians need to realize that the ultimate answer to the needs of our nation and world is not in politics, but it is in God.
John 13:34 34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
John 13:35 In this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
The reason the world will know we are his disciples is by the quality of our love for one another. Click here to Watch and Listen

"UNDERSTANDING THE CHURCH"
In this session, we're going to deal with the subject of the power and authority of Jesus Christ that's been given to us and the significance of living in that power and authority. Jesus made the promise to give us this power and authority in Matthew 16:18 when he said to Peter: "The gates of Hades will not be able to withstand or withhold the advancing church." Jesus was going to build his church. The church was going to advance. The gates of Hades could not withstand it.
Jesus is saying that he who is in us is greater than he who is in the world. His power is greater than the power of the enemy. When there is a head-on conflict between the power of the enemy and the power of God, the power of the enemy will lose every time.
By speaking truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. (Eph 4:15-16). Click here to Watch and Listen
