If Jesus came to bring peace, why is there so much conflict in this world? Are Christians going to experience increasing persecution? God’s Word has much to say in order to prepare us for what lies ahead.
Has God forgotten His promises? What should we do when we feel forgotten? When we cannot see God’s hand at work in our life does it mean that we have done something wrong? God’s Word has much to say about these dark valley experiences.
Dean Elders teaches on the challenges facing pastors during this time of being shut down without the ability to meet together.
In Acts 2:1-4 on the day of Pentecost there were two symbols that were used in connection with the Holy Spirit. A mighty rushing wind which is the breath of God. God breathed in that upper room and all the believers were filled. When they were filled tongues of fire sat upon each of them. The fire of God comes to burn up the useless things in our lives through trials and testing. Count it all joy James declares this in James 1:1-3. Welcome his breath and his fire.
Dean Elders continues teaching on the symbols of the Holy Spirit, focusing primarily on the symbols of wind and fire. Our understanding of who Holy Spirit is, along with what He desires to do within our life will be increased as we study the significance of the symbols used to describe Him.
