Empowerment Through Prayer Workshop
Perfection, Purpose & Power
Speaker: Elder Robin Brooks
I want to start off by saying thank you Jesus for my deliverance on today! Thank you Jesus for utilizing Elder Brooks as a vessel to empower your people about the importance of prayer, power of prayer, power of fasting, who we are, and what is our purpose. Friends, today we had a high time in The Lord! He broke yokes of bondage, He delivered and restored!
A few keys notes that I took and would like to share with you:
•Jesus says that we are 'Salt' and Paul says that we are 'Ambassadors'
•Salt that God sees in us preserves us from distinction
•We have a district purpose as salt, to keep flavor in the earth
•When salt loses their savior that are ineffective
•Ambassador -persons sent in an official capacity by a nation's government to represent that government in a territory of another nation
•We are citizens of Heaven -Philippians 3:20
•An intimate relationship with God is through prayer
•When we receive the Holy Ghost we have power and power gives someone legal authority
•The Bible gives us the ability to be an effective ambassador
•We are bound by a different set of laws
•The Bible governs how we are supposed to act with everybody
•If we don't get it, how do we expect the world to get it?
•According to the Bible we are kings & priest
•Being a king & priest we have authority in Heaven and on Earth
•God pulled us up to sit with Him
•-Ephesians 2:4-6; -Hebrews 7:25
•Our prayers keep our relationship with God in the right place
•We have learned to be proactive instead of reactive by praying
•Command your morning by prayer
•We have that kind of authority to demand and command our day
•Wake up every morning and say, I Am Salt! I Am An Ambassador
•The old church used to pray until they felt God'd presence, the new church is a microwave church, saying 2 second prayers and not spending enough time praying
•Praying takes intimacy and time
•God is always talking, if you listen you can hear Him
•Prayer is the key to becoming who we are supposed to be
•If you don't know the Bible, how can you become the Bible?
•You have to do more fasting, fasting kills the flesh
•Fasting will teach you how to pray and build your spirit-man
•Your spirit man will become the dominate one when you fast
•-Matthew 6:1-15; 16-17
•Fasting starves your flesh to be receptive to hear what God is trying to tell you
•Fasting will bring deliverance
>Ezra 8:21-23 (fasting brings deliverance)
>Esther 4 (corporate fasting)
>Jonah 3:5-9 (fasting works no matter who you are)
>2 Chronicles 20:1-30 (when we get to fasting God will give us explicit direction what to do)
•What ever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven and what ever you loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven
I pray that this message was a blessing to you as it was to me! I am going to end by saying, "I Am Salt!!! I Am An Ambassador Of Christ!!!!!
Thank you Elder Brooks! May God continue to empower, encourage, strengthen, order your steps, and bless you & your abundantly!
