    The Bible Speaks Live! | Hot Topic Tuesday: 'What Constitutes A True Move Of The Holy Spirit?'

    Play Episode Listen Later Jun 1, 2022 55:01


    It's what every true Christian desires: a genuine move of the Holy Spirit. But what embodies a true move of the Spirit, and what are its results? Many of us have shouted, danced, spoken in tongues, and been a part of various 'praises breaks' in between. But are these the earmarks of a true move of the Holy Spirit? Maybe--but maybe not. Join us tomorrow on our next Hot Topic Tuesday, as we look to the Word of God to settle this question. #thebiblespeakslive #HotTopicTuesday #atruemoveoftheHolySpirit

    Satan's arsenal against the believer consists of lies, temptations, accusations, and a host of other potentially life and ministry breaking attacks. Many methods have been put forth to counter all these things, yet there is one tried and true weapon that has not failed because it cannot fail, and that is the blood of Jesus. We have come into this walk by the blood, we continue to walk with Him through the blood, and we overcome the Enemy because of the blood. Join us on the next 'Hot Topic Tuesday' as we unpack the powerful truth about the blood of Jesus. #thebiblespeakslive #HotTopicTuesday #AndTheyOvercame #TheBloodofJesusChrist

    The Bible Speaks Live! | Hot Topic Tuesday: 'How Much Does Your Mind Really Matter?'

    Play Episode Listen Later May 18, 2022 57:06


    No doubt we've all heard the phrase, 'A mind is a terrible thing to waste'; and while this can be the case for the unsaved person, it should not be so for believers. This is because scripture explicitly states that HAVE the mind of Christ (1 Cor.2:16). However, this does not mean that we have license to live slipshod, raggedy lives, believing that we can listen to or observe whatever we please without it affecting us. We must daily live in a state of renewal, bringing ourselves--along with our mind, to the Cross. Join us as we unpack this important aspect of the Christian life. #thebiblespeakslive #HotTopicTuesday #howmuchdoesyourmindreallymatter

    Play Episode Listen Later May 11, 2022 59:04


    With all the talk about the revival we need, there is another sort of revival that we don't need--one we need to avoid. What revival is this? It is the revival of the sin nature. The fact is that unless we approach and manage it properly, the sin nature has the capability of not just frustrating us, but also overwhelming us. There is only one way to deal with sin and the sin nature, and that is through the Cross of Christ. Join us on our next Hot Topic Tuesday as we explore the ramifications of a revived sin nature and the only way to put it down. #thebiblespeakslive #hottopictuesday #theunwantedrevival

    Jonah has long been known as 'the man who ran'. With God's call before him, he attempted to escape it all by going in the opposite direction from where God wanted him. With Tarshish as his chosen destination, he rebelliously set sail, And while he never made it there, his intent was clear, all brought about by his decision to say no to God. You or I may say that this is something we would NEVER do, except that there is a 'spiritual Tarshish' that exists. Have you been there?

    While it certainly doesn't need to be, the call of God can be a complex dynamic in the life of a Christian. Doubt and fear, mixed with feelings of unworthiness, and sometimes just plain rebellion, can all surface as God summons us to His service. Who does He call? How should we respond? What should be expected? What we should remember, up front, is that every call is rooted in the Cross.
