2,000 demons in one man?

"So Jesus allowed them to do this. The evil spirits left the man and went into the pigs. Then the herd of pigs ran down the hill and into the lake. They were all drowned. There were about 2000 pigs in that herd," Mark 5:13

8 effects of God's word in our lives


Eight effects of God's word in our lives:


1. It produces faith. Faith comes when we hear God's word. (Romans 10:17)


2. It is the seed of the new birth (produces incorruptible life). James 1:18, 1 Peter 1:22-23


3. It produces spiritual nourishment and keeps us healthy. 1 Peter 2:2, Hebrews 5:12


4. It gives mental illumination (not same as worldly education). Psalm 119:130


5. It provides physical healing. Psalm 107:17-20; Prov 4:20-22 (God saves, heals and delivers)


6. Makes it possible to have victory over sin and satan. Psalm 119:9,11; 


7. It sanctifies and cleanses us (holiness). Ephesians 5:25-27


8. It is a spiritual mirror. James 1:23-25

Called to worship!! The act of worship!

The new phase of my life requires a new level of faith. Like never before, I find myself being drawn towards the act of worship.

So it is no surprise that the Tee (picture below) designed by "art of homage" made it to my wardrobe late last month. It is a big reminder that as a christian, I have been called to worship.


Today, I got to listen to the message, "worship" by Derek Prince. He talked about how we can use our body to worship God. Yes, yes, we as believers must worship God almighty in spirit and in truth. But our spirit cannot worship in isolation. 

"To get your whole personality in tune with God, and respond to God as He desires, your spirit has to work through your soul to move your body."

Some examples of the activities of the whole body during the act of worship:

1. Head: bow your head
Genesis 24:26; Ex 4:31
2. Hands- Lift up your hands in God's name Psalm 141:2
- Clap your hands
Psalm 47:1
- Stretch out your hands in longing, ready to receive
2 Chron 6:12-13
3. Knees: bow your knees
Ephesians 3:14 - an act of total submission
Isaiah 45:23
Phil 2:9-10
4. Falling prostrate on your face before God. It means total submissions to God.
Gen 17:3; 15-17
5. Dance with all your might
2 Samuel 6:14; 20-23; 
Psalm 103:1
1 cor 6:17
1 cor 15:44

Relationship between thanksgiving, praise and worship:

1. Thanksgiving - Acknowledge God's goodness and kindness
2. Praise - Acknowledge God's greatness
Psalm 100:4: praise gives secure access to God
3. Worship - Acknowledge God's holiness.
Through worship your spirit makes contact with God.

Psalm 95:1-7
Worship is only to God. Be totally involved during worship. God speaks during worship!

What are you currently going through? Come join in let us worship through the storm! 

Shalom!
