prophet

By Chad Daugherty

The Bible was written over a span of 1500 years by 40 different human authors in 3 different languages (Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek), on hundreds of subjects, and yet there is one consistent, noncontradictory theme that runs through it all: God’s redemption of humankind. Clearly, statistical probability is a powerful indicator of the trustworthiness of scripture. Nearly one–third of the Bible is directly or indirectly related to prophecy, which includes about 10,000 prophecies. Concerning prophecy God told us in 2 Peter 1:19-21:

19 We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Dove

By Chad Daugherty

The greatest gift God has given us to live victorious lives is the Holy Spirit! Sadly many christians go through life without ever fully tapping into the power God has given us through the Holy Spirit. My intent is to shed some light on this subject and hopefully challenge you to tap into the power of the Holy Spirit that God has blessed you with!

Upon asking Jesus Christ (with a sincere heart) to forgive you of your sin and to come into your life and be your Lord and Savior, you are forgiven your sins and the Holy Spirit enters you sealing your redemption:

And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:13-14
