13 Sermons: Are Signs and Wonders for Today?
What is the nature of the kingdom of God? And what is the "power" that the kingdom exerts now in the church?
Satan is not opposed to most ordinary things you do, as long as you do them like the rest of the world.
Peaceful, non-violent, ready-to-suffer protest is one way that the truth and beauty of God's kingdom shines in this world.
Since Jesus has come, God exerts his right to rule in new and powerful ways.
The kingdom of God is present and future. There has been fulfillment, but there has not been consummation.
The kingdom has come and it has overcome the aimlessness and futility of our lives and given us an awesome reason to live.
Did the apostles have spiritual gifts that are now obsolete?
"Gifts of healings" and "workings of miracles" are for the church and the mission of Christ in the world today.
James 5 is a rebuke to pastors that never have the faith to heal and churches that don't pray in the spirit of Elijah.
The spiritual gift of prophecy has not passed away, but is meant for the good of the church until Jesus comes.
Prophecy is prompted and sustained by the Spirit and yet does not carry intrinsic, divine authority.
God doesn't tell us to forsake thinking and just listen for messages. He tells us to be changed in the way we think.
Deep down we know so much truth that we fear and therefore deny.
