Quenching The Spirit

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

This Weekend – It’s a word we don’t use much: “quench”.  It means to extinguish something, to put out as a fire, or to repress something.  The Bible says that it’s possible for us to “quench the Holy Spirit of God” at work in our lives.  Have you ever  felt prompted to say or do something spiritually?  Did you dismiss the thought?  Perhaps you were quenching the Spirit in your life, but just didn’t know it.  Listen to a real life story of sincere parents who perhaps quenched the Spirit of God working in the life of their son.  I’d like to think that they just didn’t realize it, until years later!

Week 33 – 12/5/2016

Power in the Name!

Luke 10:17-24

This Week – If you don’t think names matter, think about a time when someone mocked or derided your name.  How did you feel?  The name of Jesus is not only important, it’s vital to your life and mine.  This week we read in Luke where people notice that even demonic spirits responded and obeyed the very name of Jesus.  All this week we discuss the power of the Name that is above all other names!

Monday (12/5) – Luke tells us that Jesus appointed 72 representatives to go out ahead of Him to prepare people for His coming and ministry.  The “72” noticed that there was power, merely in the name of Jesus.  Not only were people healed of diseases through that name, the demons would respond in obedience to the name of Jesus in submission.  Is it possible there is power in that name today?

Power in the Name! Part 1

Tuesday (12/6) – These 72 people were different than the 12 Apostles and were involved in “spiritual warfare”, simply because of the name of Jesus!  They actually expressed surprise to Jesus that the demons responded to the Name.  Anything we do in the name of Jesus in 2016 is spiritual warfare.  We begin with five things that we do today in the name of Jesus.  Number one is that we pray in the name of Jesus; secondly we worship in the name of Jesus.

Power in the Name! Part 2

Wednesday (12/7) – We take communion in Jesus name.  Jesus would say every time we eat the bread and drink the cup, we “proclaim” the Lord’s death to those around us, to ourselves, to the world, and to Satan himself.  We baptize in the name of Jesus and we witness in the name of Jesus.  Everything we do for Him or with Him is a form of spiritual warfare.  We come against evil in that name!

Power in the Name! Part 3

Thursday (12/8) – We hope in the name of Jesus.  Any hope in your life and mine is ultimately connected to the One who claimed to be the way, the truth, and the Life!  Anything positive that happens in your life is connected to the Lord in some way. We tell a dramatic story out of the Korean War and how a soldier was “covered” by the prayers of his mother.  Who is covered by your prayers?  Is your spouse, your children, your friends?

Power in the Name! Part 4

Friday (12/9) – We close with the story of a Bible translator in Mexico who discovered a woman was greatly comforted knowing that her “name” was listed in heaven.  Jesus in this passage tells the “72” that say should not rejoice that the demons respond to His name, but rather that their names were written in heaven!  It’s a figurative expression that reflects the Lord’s commitment to us for all eternity! There is power in His name in your life and mine!

    Luke 8: 22 – 25; Oct. 14, 2016
    Dear Randy,

    Your message from Luke about the storms of life and how Christ is in the boat through all weather was timely for me.
    My earthly father, Sherwood Alonzo Merchant Jr., is slowly dying in home hospice care. He has defied odds and lasted in his body much longer than anyone predicted. As the storm of death closes in on the family, I placed my iPhone on his pillow so Dad could hear the last section of the message that even in death Christ is in the boat with us.

    Thank you for this powerful message,

    God Bless you,

    Mark Sherwood Merchant

    Your preaching this week titled Conflict,Criticism, and Condemnation was a message the whole church and believers everywhere needs to hear! Slanderous accusations and bitterness breaks many a family and quenches the Holy Spirit in the church. It’s the tool Satan uses most effectively against the ministry of the Gospel! Please send me a CD of the whole message if it’s available.

    I love listening to ‘certain-key’ ministers on Sirius as I drive through Dallas traffic on my way to the office and home again each day. The oddest thing is, I get as much or more Christian-life insight from of your 5-minute talks with me (you do talk to me) as I do from many who preach for 30-minutes. You have a God given way of succinctly stating just what I need to hear each morning. How do you do that? I’m going to add you to four others to whom I send support because I know and believe you are the ‘real deal’ and I so enjoy you.

    My husband heard your message on the power of the tongue..he asked me to listen..we have been struggling after some harsh words exchagned. We are in very different places….with our faith I believe and it is my daily prayer for God to bring us closer together….to fill our hearts with the holy spirit to be kinder to each other. This message, for me, was a great place to start….it has allowed me to begin the forgiveness process and I am greatful for your ministry. Thank you.
