Today’s message is the God of miracles, signs, and wonders.
Genesis 2:7 – 7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.
Genesis 17:5 – 5 I am changing your name. It will no longer be Abram. Instead, you will be called Abraham, for you will be the father of many nations.
Romans 4:17-18 – 17 (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; 18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.”
God took sand – that is nothing – and breathed into it, and it became a living soul. That is the same sand you walk on, on a daily basis, God took it, molded/shaped it, and breathed into it, and it became a living soul, which is you and me today.
God can make your nothingness/emptiness and make something beautiful.
He did it before He can do it again.
When God changed Abram’s name to Abraham, he assumed that name and began to call himself what God calls him. We know that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. And faith is the only thing that pleases God.
So, for Abraham to maintain his faith robust and healthy, he began to call his name Abraham. He began to make a confession of what God says he is. So when he called himself Abraham, his faith arose.
Abraham knew that faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God.
God calls into existence what doesn’t exist as though they do. He calls the things that be not as though they were.
It is the spirit that quickens and creates. As born-again believers, you are spirit, born by the spirit of God.
God calls a barren woman, mother of children. Call those things that be not as though they were.
He calls a dead person sleeping.
He creates an army out of dry bones.
God is calling you and me to imitate Him.
Jesus said the works that I do shall you as a believer do also and do greater works.
