- Zechariah 4: 6-10

- It's not by our strength but it is by the Spirit of the Lord.

- Mighty mountains will not stand in the way and the walls will fall down. The Holy       Spirit will remove all obstacles. 

- Romans 12:1

- The Holy Spirit is a gift, we have to humble ourselves to receive a gift.

- We must humble ourselves and know that we need Him. He will then fill us with His     Spirit, give your body to God.

- The Gospels and book of Acts church were accused of leading souls away. Don't trust what the World says about you.

- Let God transform you.

- Through Baptism all sins are washed away.

- God wants to give us the awesome gift of His Holy Spirit and dwell in us.

- We will not get the gift if we are trying to accept it in pride. He will give it to us if we humble ourselves.

- Matthew 4: 18-22

- Peter and Andrew are fishermen and Jesus said to them "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men".

-They dropped everything and followed Him, they were right in the middle of their lives.

- Matthew 9: 9

- Jesus told Matthew the tax collector to follow Him

- Matthew dropped everything and followed him.

- Matthew 10: 1

- Jesus called his twelve Disciples. 

- Jesus gave them power over unclean spirits to cast them out, heal the sick, and raise the dead.

- A Disciple is to be a follower.

- Apostle is to be one sent out.

- Mark 3:14

- Jesus appointed the twelve that they would be with Him and that He would send them out to preach.

- Jesus is reaching souls and then sending them out to reach more. 

- Reaching souls is the defining principle of the real Church. 

- Souls turn to God when they see brokenness and expressions of the heart.

- Thank you, Jesus, you have brought us back from the edge.

- Create a different atmosphere around you, one that stirs worship, prayer, and God's   Word is received.

- People are reaching out to you because they have been reached. Then the next person can be reached.

- The Church is Kingdom focused not earthly focused.

 

- 1 Peter 3:15-22

- Sanctify the Lord in our hearts and always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks us for a reason for the hope that is in us.

- We must worship Christ as Lord of our life.

- We will have a clean consciousness if our testimony, and life comes from the Lord. 

- When we read the Word and it is confirmed in you, the Spirit will show you.

- It is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer from doing good than from doing evil.

- Water is the picture of Baptism which now saves us, not removing dirt from our body but the answer of a good conscience toward God.

- Try to reach souls in a gentle and respectable way. Never reach Souls by  Condemnation. 

- Jesus reached out opportunity by expressing faith, repent, and turn from your ways and come to me.

- There was conviction.

- Meditate on the truth.

- Psalm 119

- Living as I should

- Seek Him with our whole heart.

- We will meditate on your decrees.

- The mouth will speak His words, that will carry us through.

- Sat under their teachings.

- Through His Spirit brings us together. They were filled with His Spirit at Pentecost.

- There is a boldness that comes with the Spirit.

- How can we follow a Spirit God without being Spiritual?

- If it frightens you get a little closer, let Him touch you, and submit to Him and He will wipe every fear from your soul. He will bring peace.

- When fear is lifted it opens a portal of heaven to pour down and he will give us words to speak.

- There is unity in the Body for Christ. He uses the body to help one another and be Kingdom-focused people.

- The truth comes from the Word of the Bible.

- Spirit will completely transform us, transformed without the fingerprint of people.

- Husbands humble themselves to God and submit to Him. The wife will rejoice beside him.

- Satan is coming against Marriages and wants to destroy them.

- The church is here to preach salvation with confidence and boldness.

- We have complete authority to speak his Word. 

- As the Church power and authority to speak over princes and Spirits coming against them.

- You receive the authority to preach once we take on His name at Baptism. By being baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. 

- By putting on His name we receive the authority to use that power over spirits and principalities. They will crumble and have to leave and souls are freed up.
