Pastor Aries’ Sermon 28, October, 2017

2 Kings 2:6-11
Double portion of the spirit.
Elijah did 7 miracles. Elisha did 14 miracles.
Another meaning = your life repeated in my life. I want to be a holy man just like you.

To repeat something is not easy.
It requires much fasting and prayer.
Furthermore, to do it better is even more difficult.

To repeat the success of building fund is not easy.
To have revival in 1 generation is already difficult.
To do 10 times is CHC.

We should keep repeating until overcoming is synonymous with us. We are overcomers.

CHC did many new things and overcame barriers of growth and pain.

John 16:33
Lord Jesus did all the overcoming. Our job is to appropriate His finished work.
1 John 4:4, 1 John 5:4-5
If we keep our faith, we wil overcome.
The devil only wants to steal our faith.

What is faith?
Matt 17:20
It is mountain-moving. But faith is more than that.
Many times we are in crisis then we apply mountain moving faith. But, there is more.

FA I TH

I is the center of life. Faith has to be the center of life.
FA = Force in Action. Mountain moving faith.
TH = Tenacity in Holding Up . Weather proof faith.

Mark 4:35-41
The presence of storm doesn’t mean the absence of Jesus.
If God wants us to be overcomers, then He allows obstacle to come in our way.
The storm became calm not because of some overpowering power. It ran out of breath, ran out of stamina.
Does the obstacle outlast our faith or does our faith outlast the obstacle?

The one who wins the race is the one who doesn’t run out of breath first.

As overcomers, we are not sprinters but long distance runners.
If we persevere and endure, the obstacle will have expiry date.

Lord Jesus was asleep even when the storm came.
He knew no one would sink.
He was telling them, “Keep calm and trust God.”
If Lord Jesus was sleeping, probably the disciples should have been sleeping on that day too.

What is the good thing about sleeping in the midst of storm?
The storm feels short when we sleep.

Heb 12:1-3
God is waiting at the finish line. He is cheering us on.
When we are lacking of faith, we should go over the story of Lord Jesus did it.
