Apostle La Tanya Jimerson:
Title: The Unity of Hope
Foundational Scripture: Romans 15: 4-13 NKJV Rom 14: 6-10 Psalm 69:9 Philippians 2: 5-11
Offense is a detriment to what God is doing right now; that’s why there’s so much of it.
In this unsettled atmosphere in the Earth, the church needs to rise up
The atmosphere is not conducive to us being caught up in our finite world so that we can’t see beyond our circumstances
The time (in the church, in your life, in the world) is critical and the church has to be Unified.
We have to get to a place where we care un-offendable and we can stand in our position, regardless of what happens.
We have to refrain from arguing with people about those things that are not essential to our faith
We cannot adequately serve when we are offended
1. Christ died and rose to be our Lord, so we are accountable to Him
2. We must ALL stand before the judgment seat of Christ
3. Christ accepts ALL his people; so we need to accept one another
We must not forget that Jesus came into this world, not only to be part of the nativity scene in the manger
He (Christ) ultimately came to die for the sins of His people
We have to get to the place where we approach the bible with reverence and faith, instead of doubt and criticism. It has harmony and is self-authenticating
From the bible, we want:
the miracles and no discipline
advancement and no accountability
elevation and no submission
increase, no tithe
“Successful churches are full of hungry people”
Let God have His way in our hearts. Some of us have “hurt attacks” in our hearts and we need to deal with that area...Offense
When God made his promise to Abraham. It wasn’t just to America.
God is not just for Americans; God cares about all the nations
