  • Message

  • Means- Holy Spirit
  • Motivation- Urgency- Jesus is Coming’

Power of the team – Prayer

 

Whenever God is ready to do a great work, he first sets his people to pray.” 

Charles Spurgeon

“The life, power and glory of the church is prayer.  Without it, the church is lifeless and powerless. When prayer is a stranger there, then it ceases to be God’s house at all.”  

EM Bounds

Purpose of the  offense is to advance the ball across the goal line  

The Commission 

 

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20  teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

 

Matthew 28:18

 

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” 

Acts 1:8

 

The End Game 

 

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10  and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
