Greatest In The Kingdom Of Heaven

Matthew, Mark, Luke & John: Session 29

            Jesus overheard a debate between his disciples about who among them would be greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. So Jesus sat down a little child next to him to use as a visual aid to represent the child of God and then proceeded to give a lecture on (1) how to get into the Kingdom, (2) how to be great in the Kingdom and (3) how to receive the King's favor. Regarding greatness, he explained that it's the humility of our heart before God that makes us truly great. Jesus then said, "Whoever welcomes and receives one such child in My name welcomes and receives Me. But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble into sin, it would be better for them if a millstone were hung around their neck and thrown into the sea." (For those of you who've been waiting to hear me talk about Hell, this one's for you.) Jesus then spoke of just how far the Father goes to protect his children, even when they rebel or run away. He gave his famous parable of the lost sheep and then explained that every last one of us who are called a child of God, have angels guarding us 24/7. Guardian angels are not a myth, they're a Biblical reality.

Faith That Moves Mountains

Matthew, Mark, Luke & John: Session 28

            All of us have to deal with various types of immovable mountains in our path that are huge and intimidating. They're too high for us to climb over, they're too big to go around and too thick to tunnel through. These mountains can be circumstantial, emotional, financial, physical or even demonic. Jesus said that just the faith of a mustard seed could enable us to remove mountains and nothing would be impossible for us. He also said that the ingredients to building that kind of faith required prayer and fasting but what does that mean? It's not what you think. In this session, we set aside some special time to address specifically the kind of faith that moves mountains, how to get that faith, what prayer and fasting is REALLY all about and then we examine various types of mountains and how God removes them.
