Prayer Brings the Kingdom of God - Robert Henderson

00:0000:00

What is Prayer - Prayer is a two-way conversation with God. This involves directing our prayer to God, speaking out loud, listening and responding to Him (Ps. 5:3). There are corporate prayers, where we pray together for a certain outcome (Matt. 18:19; Acts 14:23), and where we are assembled together but we commune individually with Him (Acts 12:12; 20:36; 21:5). There are prayers we pray on our own, not to be seen by men, but pray in secret (Matt. 6:5-8).

 

Why pray – God told us to (Luke 18:1; Phm. 1:4). Prayer releases our authority He has given us through our mouth (Rom. 10:10). It enables God to work through us, to meet His will on earth for us and others (Ezek. 22:29-31; John 15:7; Matt. 7:7-11; Ps. 91) e.g. prayer for salvation (Rom. 10:9-10; Matt. 9:38), empowerment of Holy Spirit (Acts 8:15; 19:6; Luke 11:13), protecting us against temptation (Matt. 26:41), giving us supernatural wisdom (James 1:6), healing (James 5:15-16), physical needs (Phil. 4:19), and much more…

 

Who do we pray to – To God our Father who is in Heaven (Matt. 6:9; 23:9; John 8:42). Jesus Christ’s sacrifice made it possible to have direct access to God as our Father (Heb. 4:16; John 1:12) and it is Holy Spirit who actually helps us (Rom. 8:14-15, 26). Can we pray with Jesus and Holy Spirit? Yes, Paul prayed to the Lord Jesus when he was being persecuted (2 Cor. 12:8-9) and so did Stephen (Acts 7:59). The early church communed with Holy Spirit regarding interpretation of scripture for He is our Teacher (Acts 10:19-20; 13:2; 15:28; 2 Cor. 13:14; 1 John 2:26-27; John 14:16).

 

How to pray - The key to prayer is to know God’s love has been provided in and through Jesus Christ and to respond accordingly (John 17:23; Acts 17:28; Rom. 5:10; 8:38-39). Know that He hears and responds. The pattern of prayer is to honor God as our Heavenly Father, seek His Will to be done, talk about expanding His Kingdom, forgive others, repent and depend upon Him (Luke 11:2-4; Matt. 6:9-15; John 17; Acts 4:24-30).

 

Few Types of prayer: Prayer - to commune with a heart of worship/ obedience to Him (Matt. 6:8-12, 33).

Supplication - to request/ urge God’s blessing for self or others (Rom. 10:2; Luke 1:13).

Confession – to confess our need for Him and His promises (Rom. 10:10), including repenting for our sin (1 John 1:9; Rev. 3:19).

Intercessory – to commune with God on behalf of someone else (2 Cor. 1:11; Ezek. 22:29-31).

Thanks giving and praise – to express gratitude to Him (1 Tim. 2:1; Heb. 13:15).

 

These types of Prayer are mostly spoken out loud (Luke 11:2; John 17:1; 18:1), either in our natural language or in our spiritual language(s) called tongues. We pray in our understanding and sometimes not (1 Cor. 14:14-15).

 

Tongues - Everyone who believes and is baptized in Holy Spirit can speak in tongues (Mark 16:17; Acts 2:4; 8:17-19; 11:15). Being baptized in Holy Spirit can be at the same time as conversion (Acts 10:44-46) or after (Acts 19:5-6; John 20:22 & Acts 1:8). Generally the person speaking in tongues doesn’t know what they are saying; they are speaking mysteries (1 Cor. 14:2), the wonderful works of God (Acts 2:11), and/or giving of thanks to God (1 Cor. 14:16). In the process they are edifying themselves (1 Cor. 14:2, 4; Jude 1:20).

 

How to Hear Him – It is rare, but He does speak audibly. Most times His voice speaks to our conscience, our spirit. It is Holy Spirit who bears witness with our spirit (Rom. 9:1; 8:16). His voice gives us an answer of inner peace (2 Tim. 1:7). An inner peace that isn’t based on logic, tradition or emotion but on an inner knowing it is right or no peace telling us it is wrong (Gen. 41:16, Ps. 85:8; Phil. 4:6-8; Col. 3:15, 1 John 2:27). His peace validates the word He speaks. Many times the Lord will answer the root of the question, the motivation for the request, not necessarily what is being asked (1 Chr. 28:9; Luke 1:18-20, 34-35). So check the motive.

 

Some ways He speaks -

  • He reminds us of a specific Bible passage and it brings clarity to that exact area of need (2 Peter 1:19; Ps. 119:105,130; John 14:26; Matt. 4:4).
  • A dream or vision burnt into our heart and we have difficulty shaking it (Job 33:15-16; Acts 10:17).
  • Someone is sent to answer, or ask a question that inspires the answer (Acts 3:18-22; 1 Cor. 12:28; Num. 22:28-33). It confirms what we already know within (Acts 21:10-14).
  • An impossible idea accompanied by His faith and favour to do it (Num. 14:6-9; Matt. 14:29).
  • A thought reveals the answer as you step out and answer (Matt. 10:20; 1 Cor. 2:10; Jer. 1:11-12).
  • A similar scenario is played out, exposing the answer (Acts 10:10-17; 2 Sam. 12:1-12).
  • As we write to Him, He responds through the flow of the words (e.g. Ps. 3; 4; 5 etc.).

 

If unable to clearly hear Him then suppress the flesh with a fast! (Luke 5:35; Gal. 6:7-8; Acts 13:2; 14:23).

 Barriers to Prayer -

  • Not surrendering to Him as the source (Heb. 11:6; Ex. 3:14; James 4:7-8; Prov. 28:9; 2 Chr. 7:14-16);
  • Being worldly and not God’s Kingdom focused (James 4:3; Matt. 6:20-33);
  • Having an un-repentant heart (1 John 1:7-9; Ps. 66:18);
  • Not praying from a transparent believing heart (Jer. 29:11-14; Is. 29:13; Mark 11:22-23);
  • Having un-forgiveness towards others (Mark 11:25-26; Matt. 6:15);
  • Not loving those in the Lord (John 15:7-12; 1 John 3:20-24; Matt. 5:23-24);
  • Abstaining from good; not seeking justice, not rebuking those who oppress those who are suffering; not defending the fatherless, not pleading on behalf of the widow (Is. 1:15-19). Shutting our eyes and ears to helping the poor (Prov. 21:13). Ignoring the needs of our family (1 Tim. 5:8);
  • Husband dishonouring their wife (1 Peter 3:7); wife not submitting to her husband as to the Lord (1 Cor. 11:10; Eph. 5:22).

Healing through Word of Knowledge - Randy Clark

00:0000:00

The word of knowledge is a spiritual gift listed in 1 Corinthians 12:8. It has been associated with the ability to teach the faith, but also with forms of revelation similar to prophecy. It is closely related to another spiritual gift, the word of wisdom.

 

The true gift that Jesus spoke about is the Gift of Holy Spirit - Acts 1:8; & 2:38 also Peter, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." The manifestation of Holy Spirit is in different ways through a person - Paul lists 9 of them in 1 Cor. 12, these are known as spiritual gifts.

 

Before anyone can minister effectively – they need to be baptised in Holy Spirit as Jesus said in Acts 1:4-8 “And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which," He said, "you have heard from Me; (5) for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now."  …. (8)  But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." 

 

1 Cor. 12-14 is all about the structure and order in the church.  The key of the message is this – it can only be done effectively when love is the key motivator.  A person is still able to operate the gifts outside love like the Corinthian church were doing, but it needs to be in Love.  Love wants people set free, empowered, edified, encouraged.  Paul dissects the working of the trinity to show how they work together in harmony to create unity.  All of these work together e.g. casting out demons – a person needs to discern the demon, then cast out through faith, maybe it is there because of a barrier that needs to be identified (words of Knowledge), then lays hands on for their restoration (healing).  Then giving them parting words to help direct their future (words of Wisdom).  It is like he is showing how the engine of a car works but the importance is how it works in unity, not how each works that’s why he doesn’t go into detail on each of the gifts but the unity of them – “the manifestation of the Spirit”.
