16 WHO POWERS YOU?

17 WHAT POWERS YOU?

18 There Is Something About Church And It’s Power That Make People Want It!

19 That Can Be A Good Thing And That Can Be A Bad Thing!

20 Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Jesus Said…

21 If people want what we have, because of radically changed lives through Jesus Christ our Lord… THEN AMEN! If people want what we have, because of radically changed lives through Jesus Christ our Lord… THEN AMEN!

28 Here’s How Power Plays Or Power Grabs Or Power Kicks Smell To God…

29 PEW-EE!

30 GOD IS BIG ON GOD!

31 HE WANT’S ALL THE GLORY!

32 A Powerful Attitude Is: PITIFUL & PATHETIC PITIFUL & PATHETIC ‘Cause We’re Puny!

34 Acts 8:9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: Look At…

35 Acts 8:13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

36 Acts 8: Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. 18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, 19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. Acts 8: Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. 18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, 19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.

37 Acts 8: But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. 21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Acts 8: But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. 21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.

38 Acts 8: Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. 23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. 24 Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the LORD for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me. Acts 8: Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. 23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. 24 Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the LORD for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.

39 He seemingly got saved and he was baptized He saw what they did He offered them money He wanted the power He seemingly got saved and he was baptized He saw what they did He offered them money He wanted the power

40 PETER SAID: “Your money PERISH with you”

41 PETER SAID: “The gift of God cannot be PURCHASED” PETER SAID: “The gift of God cannot be PURCHASED”

42 PETER SAID: “You have no PART” PETER SAID: “You have no PART”

43 PETER SAID: “Repent and ask for forgiveness” PETER SAID: “Repent and ask for forgiveness” You are bitter You are full of iniquity You are bitter You are full of iniquity

44 We Are To Serve The Lord With Gladness, And Do It With Humility And Honor!

45

46

47 The Two Words ‘BITTERNESS’ And ‘INIQUITY’ Certainly Ring True Of Folks Who I Have Personally Seen And Known Who Had Unusually Strong Desire For ‘CHURCH POWER!’

48 Here’s what power plays and power grabs and power kicks do to the body of believers

49 Revelation 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; Look At The Church Of Laodicea…

50 Revelation 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. POWERLESS POWERLESS

51 Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. POISONED POISONED

52 Revelation 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: POOR POOR

53 Revelation 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. POINTLESS POINTLESS

54

55 So Where Can We Get The Real POWER To Serve And Live For The Lord?

56

57 1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

82 Without It, There Is EMPTINESS Without It, There Is EMPTINESS

83 1 Corinthians 15: But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. 1 Corinthians 15: But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

84 1 Corinthians 15:17 & And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. 1 Corinthians 15:17 & And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

86 1 Corinthians 15: But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 1 Corinthians 15: But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

89 1 Corinthians 15: Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15: Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

90 1 Corinthians 15: For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 1 Corinthians 15: For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

92 1 Corinthians 15: O death, where is thy sting?
