Positive speaking In this ever changing world we life in there is not much thats in our direct control anymore. This might be a scary statement if it was true. Thank God that its not! We have the power to create. And we have the same power that God has to create. In Genesis God said Light be and light was. God created what was needed when he spoke. When we speak we create. If we speak negative things we create negative things. If we need to create positive things we need to speak positive things. We have compiled a list of things to speak everyday. Just read them out loud daily God bless Janke Geldenhuys

Confession For truly I say to you that whoever shall say to this mountain, Be moved and be cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he said shall occur, he shall have whatever he said. (Mar 11:23) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Rom 10:17) Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it shall eat the fruit of it. (Pro 18:21) Work Do your own work well, and then you will have something to be proud of. But don't compare yourself with others. (Gal 6:4) Employees, you must obey your earthly employers. Show them great respect and be as loyal to them as you are to Christ. Try to please them at all times, and not just when you think they are watching. You are slaves of Christ, so with your whole heart you must do what God wants you to do. Gladly serve your employer, as though they were the Lord himself, and not simply people. You know that you will be rewarded for any good things you do, whether you are slaves or free. (Eph 6:5-8) Your reward depends on what you say and what you do; you will get what you deserve. (Pro 12:14) Work hard and do not be lazy. Serve the Lord with a heart full of devotion. (Rom 12:11) Favour My child, remember my teachings and instructions and obey them completely. They will help you live a long and prosperous life. Let love and loyalty always show like a necklace, and write them in your mind. God and people will like you and consider you a success. (Pro 3:1-4) Try hard to do right, and you will win friends; go looking for trouble, and you will find it. (Pro 11:27) If your goals are good, you will be respected, but if you are looking for trouble, that is what you will get. (Pro 11:27) Family

And the Lord said to Noah, Take all your family and go into the ark, for you only in this generation have I seen to be upright. (Gen 7:1) But as for me and my house, we will serve Jehovah. (Jos 24:15) The just walks in his integrity; his sons are blessed after him. (Pro 20:7) Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Pro 22:6) Pray Evening and morning, and at noon, I will pray and cry aloud; and He shall hear my voice. (Psa 55:17) Pray without ceasing. (1Th 5:17) But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, (Jud 1:20) Speech It's stupid to say bad things about your neighbors. If you are sensible, you will keep quiet. (Pro 11:12) You will say the wrong thing if you talk too much-- so be sensible and watch what you say. (Pro 10:19) The more you talk, the more likely you are to sin. If you are wise, you will keep quiet. (Pro 10:19) I said, "I will be careful about what I do and will not let my tongue make me sin; I will not say anything while evil people are near." I kept quiet, not saying a word, not even about anything good! (Psa 39:1-2) But now you must stop doing such things. You must quit being angry, hateful, and evil. You must no longer say insulting or cruel things about others. And stop lying to each other. You have given up your old way of life with its habits. Each of you is now a new person. You are becoming more and more like your Creator, and you will understand him better. (Col 3:8-10)

Do as God does. After all, you are his dear children. Let love be your guide. Christ loved us and offered his life for us as a sacrifice that pleases God. You are God's people, so don't let it be said that any of you are immoral or indecent or greedy. Don't use dirty or foolish or filthy words. Instead, say how thankful you are. (Eph 5:1-4) Character This is a statement that can be trusted: If anyone sets his heart on being a leader, he desires something excellent. A leader must have a good reputation. He must have only one wife, be sober, use good judgment, be respectable, be hospitable, and be able to teach. He must not drink excessively or be a violent person, but he must be gentle. He must not be quarrelsome or love money. He must manage his own family well. His children should respectfully obey him. (If a man doesn't know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of a business?) He must not be a new Christian, or he might become arrogant like the devil and be condemned. People who are not Christians must speak well of him, or he might become the victim of disgraceful insults that the devil sets as traps for him. Leaders must also be of good character. They must not be two-faced or addicted to alcohol. They must not use shameful ways to make money. They must have clear consciences about possessing the mystery of the Christian faith. First, a person must be evaluated. Then, if he has a good reputation, he may become a leader. (1Ti 3:1-10) Run from temptations that capture young people. Always do the right thing. Be faithful, loving, and easy to get along with. Worship with people whose hearts are pure. Stay away from stupid and senseless arguments. These only lead to trouble, and God's servants must not be troublemakers. They must be kind to everyone, and they must be good teachers and very patient. Be humble when you correct people who oppose you. Maybe God will lead them to turn to him and learn the truth. (2Ti 2:22-25) Be angry, and do not sin; ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Selah Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the LORD. (Psa 4:4-5) Healed He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that dying to sins, we might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed. (1Pe 2:24) And rising up from the synagogue, He entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was being seized with a great fever. And they asked Him for her. And standing over her, He rebuked the fever. And it left her. And immediately she arose and served them. (Luk 4:38-39) Sharp words cut like a sword, but words of wisdom heal.

(Pro 12:18) Money Matters and daily needs But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Php 4:19) For Jehovah God is a sun and shield; Jehovah will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. (Psa 84:11) Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for he who loves another has fulfilled the Law. (Rom 13:8) And Jehovah shall prosper you in goods, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your ground, in the land which Jehovah swore to your fathers to give you. (Deu 28:11) But you shall remember Jehovah your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, so that He may confirm His covenant which He has sworn to your fathers, as it is today. (Deu 8:18) Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favor my righteous cause: Yea, let them say continually, Jehovah be magnified, Who hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. (Psa 35:27) Study the Bible This book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it by day and by night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall act wisely. (Jos 1:8) With what shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your Word. With all my heart I have sought You; do not let me wander from Your Commandments. I have hidden Your Word in my heart, so that I might not sin against You. (Psa 119:9-11) But his delight is only in the Law of Jehovah; and in His Law he meditates day and night. (Psa 1:2) Your Word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path. (Psa 119:105) Protection

For You; O Jehovah, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield. (Psa 5:12) A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; it shall not come near you. (Psa 91:7) You shall tread on the lion and adder; the young lion and the jackal You shall trample underfoot. (Psa 91:13) No evil shall befall You, nor shall any plague come near Your dwelling. (Psa 91:10) No one will be able to stand up to you. The LORD will make everyone terrified of you, just as he promised. (Deu 11:25) Every weapon formed against you shall not prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment, you shall condemn. This is the inheritance of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness is from Me, says Jehovah. (Isa 54:17) And (Put your own name here), a son of a mighty man, great in deeds; he killed two lionlike men of Moab. And he went down and killed a lion in the middle of a pit in a day of snow. And he killed an Egyptian, a man of form; and a spear was in the Egyptian's hand; and he went down to him with a staff and tore away the spear from the Egyptian's hand, and killed him with his own spear. (2Sa 23:20-21) Ministry And answering, Simon Peter said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. And answering, Jesus said to him, Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but My Father in Heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My assembly, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against her. (Mat 16:16-18) And Jesus went around all Galilee teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness among the people. And the report of Him went out into all Syria. And they brought to Him all the ones being badly ill, suffering various diseases and torments, also those being demon-possessed, and those being moonstruck, and paralytics; and He healed them. And many crowds followed Him from Galilee and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and beyond the Jordan. (Mat 4:23-25)

And He said to them, Going into all the world, preach the gospel to all the creation. The one believing and being baptized will be saved. And the one not believing will be condemned. And miraculous signs will follow to those believing these things: they will cast out demons in My name; they will speak new languages; they will take up snakes; and if they drink anything deadly, it will in no way hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will be well. Then indeed, after speaking to them, the Lord was taken up into Heaven, and sat off the right of God. And going out, they preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the Word through the miraculous signs following after. Amen. (Mar 16:15-20) I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Php 4:13) And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen. (Mat 28:18-20) Pure You also say, "Food is meant for our bodies, and our bodies are meant for food." But I tell you that God will destroy them both. We are not supposed to do indecent things with our bodies. We are to use them for the Lord who is in charge of our bodies. God will raise us from death by the same power that he used when he raised our Lord to life. Don't you know that your bodies are part of the body of Christ? Is it right for me to join part of the body of Christ to a prostitute? No, it isn't! Don't you know that a man who does that becomes part of her body? The Scriptures say, "The two of them will be like one person." But anyone who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit with him. Don't be immoral in matters of sex. That is a sin against your own body in a way that no other sin is. You surely know that your body is a temple where the Holy Spirit lives. The Spirit is in you and is a gift from God. You are no longer your own. God paid a great price for you. So use your body to honor God. (1Co 6:13-20) For this is the will of God, your sanctification, for you to abstain from fornication, each one of you to know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor (not in the passion of lust, even as the nations who do not know God), not to go beyond and defraud his brother in this matter (because the Lord is the avenger concerning all these, as we also have forewarned you and testified). For God has not called us to uncleanness, but in sanctification. (1Th 4:3-7) Dear friends, God is good. So I beg you to offer your bodies to him as a living sacrifice, pure and pleasing. That's the most sensible way to serve God. Don't be like the people of this world, but let God change the way you think. Then you will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to him.

(Rom 12:1-2) I appeal to you, my friends, as strangers and refugees in this world! Do not give in to bodily passions, which are always at war against the soul. (1Pe 2:11) Temptations Every test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people. But God keeps his promise, and he will not allow you to be tested beyond your power to remain firm; at the time you are put to the test, he will give you the strength to endure it, and so provide you with a way out. (1Co 10:13)

Leading someone to Jesus Week 11 (Session 1) The great commission Lets again look at the 5 steps of faith. Since God can only be pleased by faith we must put these steps of faith into practice daily. So from now on each lesson we will do a recap of what faith is and how it works So lets look at the five steps of faith In Bible foundations we will go into much detail of faith but just in a nutshell lets look at the process of faith What is faith? Heb 11:1 KJV Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Heb 11:6 MKJV But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Faith definition = Believing and doing the word of God The five steps of faith 1. Hear it - Rom 10:17 EMTV So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 2. Say it - 2Co 4:13 EMTV And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to that which is written, "I believed, and therefore I spoke," we also believe, therefore we also speak, 3. Do it - Jas 2:17 EMTV Thus also that faith, if it does not have works, is dead, being by itself 4. Receive it - Heb 11:6 MKJV But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. 5. Tell it - Gal 5:6 GNB For when we are in union with Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor the lack of it makes any difference at all; what matters is faith that works through love.
Mat 9:26-31 MKJV And this report went out into all that land. (27) And when Jesus passed on from there, two blind ones followed Him, crying and saying, Son of David, have mercy on us. (28) And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said to Him, Yes, Lord. (29) Then He touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith let it be to you. (30) And their eyes were opened. And Jesus strictly charged them, saying, See, let no one know. (31) But going out, they made Him known in all that land. In this lesson we are going to look at what the great commission is. Mar 16:15-20 MKJV And He said to them, Go into all the world, proclaim the gospel to all the creation. (16) He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned. (17) And miraculous signs will follow to those believing these things: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak new tongues; (18) they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will be well. (19) Then indeed, after speaking to them, the Lord was taken up into Heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. (20) And going out, they proclaimed everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the Word by miraculous signs following. Amen.

Mat 28:18-20 MKJV And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority is given to Me in Heaven and in earth. (19) Therefore go and teach 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 things, whatever I commanded you. And, behold, I am with you all the days until the end of the world. Amen.

From these verses we can brake down the last words of Jesus into two sections. Lead someone to Jesus and then teach them the word of God. In this second model of this bible school program we are going to look at leading someone to Jesus.
Pro 11:30 GW The fruit of a righteous person is a tree of life, and a winner of souls is wise. Dan 12:3 GW Those who are wise will shine like the brightness on the horizon. Those who lead many people to righteousness will shine like the stars forever and ever.

We can clearly see that God links wisdom directly to leading people to Jesus. You cannot step into true success as a Christian unless you start making souls your highest priority.
Mat 4:19 GW Jesus said to them, "Come, follow me! I will teach you how to catch people instead of fish." Mar 1:17-18 GW Jesus said to them, "Come, follow me! I will teach you how to catch people instead of fish." (18) They immediately left their nets and followed him.

From these verses we can see that a follower of Jesus is someone that will learn how to lead someone to Jesus.
Eze 3:17-19 GW "Son of man, I have made you a watchman over the people of Israel. Listen to what I say, and warn them for me. (18) Suppose I tell you that wicked people will surely die, but you don't warn them or speak out so that they can change their wicked ways in order to save their lives. Then these wicked people will die because of their sin, but I will hold you responsible for their deaths. (19) But suppose you warn the wicked people, and they don't turn from their wicked ways. Then they will die because of their sin, but you will save yourself. Rom 10:13-15 GW So then, "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (14) But how can people call on him if they have not believed in him? How can they believe in him if they have not heard his message? How can they hear if no one tells the Good News? (15) How can people tell the Good News if no one sends them? As Scripture says, "How beautiful are the feet of the messengers who announce the Good News."

It is clear that we have a purpose to tell people about Jesus and the Gospel or Good News. In the week 13 we are going to look in detail what the Gospel or Good News is. For now we must understand two things very clearly. God has called us to tell people about Him and that it is not our responsibility to force people into a relationship with God. We are merely called in life to tell people about Jesus.
Mat 9:36-38 MKJV But seeing the crowds, He was moved with compassion on them, because they were tired and scattered like sheep having no shepherd. (37) Then He said to His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few. (38) Therefore pray to the Lord of the harvest that He will send out laborers into His harvest.

We can clearly see from this account that Jesus wants us to pray that we go into the world and lead people to Jesus. Our prayer should not be God send people to our church. It is our responsibility to go and fetch them. Jesus says in this section that the world is ready for us and the Gospel. From these verses we can clearly see that we have a responsibility to lead people to Jesus. We said that the great commission and the last words of Jesus can be broke down into two sections. Lead someone to Jesus and then teach them. Once we have lead someone to Jesus and they give their hearts to Him we must know teach them the word of God. Lets look at some verse that confirms this.
Mat 7:24-29 MKJV Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on a rock. (25) And the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it did not fall, for it was founded on a rock. (26) And everyone who hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them shall be compared to a foolish man who built his house on the sand. (27) And the rain came down, and the floods came, and the wind blew and beat on that house. And it fell, and great was its fall. (28) And it happened, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His doctrine. (29) For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Just being a Christian and following Jesus is not going to help you when satan attack you. The only thing that will help you stand strong in the attack is your knowledge and revelation of Gods word and you obedience to it. When we lead someone to Jesus we must help the person to build on the rock of Jesus.
1Co 11:2 MKJV But I praise you, brothers, that you remember me in all things, and you keep the doctrines as I delivered them to you. Mat 5:14-19 MKJV You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. (15) Nor do men light a lamp and put it under the grain-measure, but on a lampstand. And it gives light to all who are in the house. (16) Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven. (17) Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy but to fulfill. (18) For truly I say to you, Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law until all is fulfilled. (19) Therefore whoever shall relax one of these commandments, the least, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of Heaven. But whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of Heaven.

We can clearly see that we are called to be the light of this world. We must live a lifestyle of faith. That is the shall do in Mat 5:19. But then it goes on and says we must teach people. Once we start to let our light shine people will glorify God. When they except Jesus as their Lord they are now born again (John 3). Babies need lots of milk as they grow up.
1Co 3:1-2a CEV My friends, you are acting like the people of this world. That's why I could not speak to you as spiritual people. You are like babies as far as your faith in Christ is concerned. (2) So I had to treat you like babies and feed you milk. You could not take solid food. 1Pe 2:2-3 GW Desire God's pure word as newborn babies desire milk. Then you will grow in your salvation. (3) Certainly you have tasted that the Lord is good!

Janke Geldenhuys www.jankegeldenhuys.co.za Download our 1 year bible program and implement it in your church free of charge

We can clearly see that we have a responsibility to teach people the word of God 2Co 1:1-4 GW From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and from Timothy our brother. To God's church in the city of Corinth and to all God's holy people everywhere in Greece. (2) Good will and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ are yours! (3) Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! He is the Father who is compassionate and the God who gives comfort. (4) He comforts us whenever we suffer. That is why whenever other people suffer, we are able to comfort them by using the same comfort we have received from God. In these verses they are talking about teaching other people how to operate in faith. This is the five steps of faith. If you find financial deliverance by applying the five steps of faith you can teach them to anyone. It does not matter in what trouble they are in. If they apply the five steps of faith they will be victories. But they wont know unless you teach them. Psa 66:16 GW Come and listen, all who fear God, and I will tell you what He has done for me. Heb 10:23-25 GNB Let us hold on firmly to the hope we profess, because we can trust God to keep his promise. (24) Let us be concerned for one another, to help one another to show love and to do good. (25) Let us not give up the habit of meeting together, as some are doing. Instead, let us encourage one another all the more, since you see that the Day of the Lord is coming nearer.

So the great commission is to lead people to Jesus and to teach (disciple) them So how do we lead someone to Jesus
Rom 1:16 MKJV For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

From this we see that the gospel is the power to salvation. In two session from now we will look at what exactly the gospel is.

Leading someone to Jesus Week 12 (Session 2) The ministry of Jesus Lets again look at the 5 steps of faith. Since God can only be pleased by faith we must put these steps of faith into practice daily. So from now on each lesson we will do a recap of what faith is and how it works So lets look at the five steps of faith In Bible foundations we will go into much detail of faith but just in a nutshell lets look at the process of faith What is faith? Heb 11:1 KJV Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Heb 11:6 MKJV But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Faith definition = Believing and doing the word of God The five steps of faith 1. Hear it - Rom 10:17 EMTV So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 2. Say it - 2Co 4:13 EMTV And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to that which is written, "I believed, and therefore I spoke," we also believe, therefore we also speak, 3. Do it - Jas 2:17 EMTV Thus also that faith, if it does not have works, is dead, being by itself 4. Receive it - Heb 11:6 MKJV But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. 5. Tell it - Gal 5:6 GNB For when we are in union with Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor the lack of it makes any difference at all; what matters is faith that works through love.
Mat 9:26-31 MKJV And this report went out into all that land. (27) And when Jesus passed on from there, two blind ones followed Him, crying and saying, Son of David, have mercy on us. (28) And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said to Him, Yes, Lord. (29) Then He touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith let it be to you. (30) And their eyes were opened. And Jesus strictly charged them, saying, See, let no one know. (31) But going out, they made Him known in all that land.

Lets look at the ministry of Jesus


Luk 19:1-10 MKJV And going in, He passed through Jericho. (2) And behold, there was a man named Zaccheus, who was a chief tax-collector. And he was rich. (3) And he sought to see Jesus, to see who He was. And he could not because of the press, because he was little in stature. (4) And he ran in front and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him. For He was to pass through that way. (5) And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him. And He said to him, Zaccheus! Hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house. (6) And hurrying he came down, and received Him joyfully. (7) And seeing, they all murmured, saying, He has gone in to stay with a sinful man. (8) And Zaccheus stood and said to the Lord, Behold, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor. And in anything I accused anyone falsely, I restore it fourfold. (9) And Jesus said to him, This day salvation has come
Janke Geldenhuys www.jankegeldenhuys.co.za Download our 1 year bible program and implement it in your church free of charge

to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham. (10) For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.

From these verses we can clearly see that Jesus came to seek and save the lost.
Luk 5:27-31 MKJV And after these things He went out and saw a tax-collector named Levi, sitting at the tax-office. And He said to him, Follow Me. (28) And leaving all, he rose up and followed Him. (29) And Levi made a great feast in his own house for Him. And there was a great company of tax-collectors and of others who were reclining with them. (30) But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against His disciples, saying, Why do you eat and drink with tax-collectors and sinners? (31) And Jesus answered and said to them, Those who are sound do not need a physician, but those who are sick. Jesus compared His own ministry to that of a doctor coming for sick people Mat 1:21 MKJV And she shall bear a son, and you shall call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins. From all these verses we can clearly see that Jesus is here to help us and not to condemn. He was send by God to planet earth so that we can be saved from our sins and everlasting death in hell. So how did God bring this salvation to pass through His Son Jesus Christ. We have already studied in Christian Basic under salvation that when Adam sinned, sin and death entered the world. Rom 6:23 MKJV For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. When Adam sinned, death came into the word. But then God send Jesus to die on the cross in our place. Gen 3:10-15 MKJV And he said, I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I am naked, and I hid myself. (11) And He said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree which I commanded you that you should not eat? (12) And the man said, The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate. (13) And Jehovah God said to the woman, What is this you have done? And the woman said, The serpent deceived me, and I ate. (14) And Jehovah God said to the serpent, Because you have done this you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every animal of the field. You shall go upon your belly, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. (15) And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He will bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel. The first thing that Jesus ever said to devil after he tempted Adam was that Jesus (Seed) will bruise your head. 1Jn 3:8 GW The person who lives a sinful life belongs to the devil, because the devil has been committing sin since the beginning. The reason that the Son of God appeared was to destroy what the devil does. The main reason that Jesus came to earth was to destroy what the devil was busy doing. Col 2:13-15 GW You were once dead because of your failures and your uncircumcised corrupt nature. But God made you alive with Christ when he forgave all our failures. (14) He did this
Janke Geldenhuys www.jankegeldenhuys.co.za Download our 1 year bible program and implement it in your church free of charge

by erasing the charges that were brought against us by the written laws God had established. He took the charges away by nailing them to the cross. (15) He stripped the rulers and authorities (satan and his demons) of their power and made a public spectacle of them as he celebrated his victory in Christ. When Jesus died on the cross our sins was complete forgiven and forgotten. But Jesus also stripped satan and his demons of all their power. 1Co 2:8 CEV The rulers of this world didn't know anything about this wisdom. If they had known about it, they would not have nailed the glorious Lord to a cross. We can clearly see that satan did not know what he was doing when he crucified Jesus. When he crucified Jesus Jesus died for our sins and stripped satans powers. Joh 10:9-11 MKJV I am the door. If anyone enters in by Me, he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture. (10) The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (11) I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. Satans power allowed him to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus died and stripped these powers from satan. Now we all are stilled attacked by satan on a day to day basis. But we have the tools to fight him. Isa 54:14-17 GW You will be established in righteousness. You will be far from oppression, so you will not be afraid. You will be far from destruction, so it won't come near you. (15) "If anyone attacks you, it will not be my doing. Whoever attacks you will be defeated by you. (16) I've created blacksmiths to fan the coals into flames and to produce useful weapons. I've also created destroyers to bring destruction. (17) No weapon that has been made to be used against you will succeed. You will have an answer for anyone who accuses you. This is the inheritance of the LORD'S servants. Their victory comes from me," declares the LORD. From this we can clearly see that no weapon that satan forms again us will prosper as long as we life by faith. Luk 4:14-21 CEV Jesus returned to Galilee with the power of the Spirit. News about him spread everywhere. (15) He taught in the Jewish meeting places, and everyone praised him. (16) Jesus went back to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and as usual he went to the meeting place on the Sabbath. When he stood up to read from the Scriptures, (17) he was given the book of Isaiah the prophet. He opened it and read, (18) "The Lord's Spirit has come to me, because he has chosen me to tell the good news to the poor. The Lord has sent me to announce freedom for prisoners, to give sight to the blind, to free everyone who suffers, (19) and to say, 'This is the year the Lord has chosen.' " (20) Jesus closed the book, then handed it back to the man in charge and sat down. Everyone in the meeting place looked straight at Jesus. (21) Then Jesus said to them, "What you have just heard me read has come true today." Luk 4:14-20 GW Jesus returned to Galilee. The power of the Spirit was with him, and the news about him spread throughout the surrounding country. (15) He taught in the synagogues, and everyone praised him. (16) Then Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. As usual he went into the synagogue on the day of worship. He stood up to read the lesson. (17) The attendant gave him the book of the prophet Isaiah. He opened it and found the place where it read: (18) "The Spirit of the Lord is with me. He has anointed me to tell the Good News to the poor. He has sent me to announce forgiveness to the prisoners of sin and the restoring of sight to the blind, to forgive those who have been shattered by sin, (19) to

Janke Geldenhuys www.jankegeldenhuys.co.za Download our 1 year bible program and implement it in your church free of charge

announce the year of the Lord's favor." (20) Jesus closed the book, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. Everyone in the synagogue watched him closely. The good news to the poor is: 1. 2. 3. 4. Freedom for prisoners / Announce forgiveness to the prisoners of sin Sight to the blind / Restoring of sight to the blind Freedom from those who suffer / Forgive those who have been shattered by sin The year of the Lord (debt free) / Announce the year of the Lord's favour (debt free) Lev 25:10

Rom 5:1 MKJV Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Pe 2:24 MKJV He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that dying to sins, we might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed. 2Co 8:9 MKJV For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, for your sakes He became poor, in order that you might be made rich through His poverty. From these verses we see that if we are born again and excepted Jesus as our Lord there are some promises that God promises to us. There is peace, healing and riches. But why are so many Christians still struggling. Jesus also has a ministry as the Word

Joh 1:1-14 ISV In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (2) He existed in the beginning with God. (3) Through him all things were made, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made. (4) In him was life, and that life brought light to humanity. (5) And the light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out. (6) There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. (7) He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that all might believe through him. (8) He was not the light, but he came to testify about the light. (9) This was the true light that enlightens every person by his coming into the world. (10) He was in the world, and the world was made through him. Yet the world did not recognize him. (11) He came to his own creation, yet his own people did not receive him. (12) However, to all who received him, to those believing in his name, he gave authority to become God's children, (13) who were born, not merely in a physical sense, or from a fleshly impulse, or from man's desire, but of God. (14) The Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. We gazed on his glory, the kind of glory that belongs to the Father's unique Son, full of grace and truth. From these verses we can clearly see that Jesus Himself is the word that we call the bible. If you want to know what Jesus has to say to you, you can just read the bible out loud. Pro 18:10 GW The name of the LORD is a strong tower. A righteous person runs to it and is safe. Rev 19:1-13 MKJV And after these things I heard a great sound of a numerous crowd in Heaven, saying, Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and honor and the power to the Lord our God! (2) For true and righteous are His judgments. For He has judged the great harlot who defiled the earth with her fornication, and He has avenged the blood of His servants out of her hand. (3) And secondly they said, Hallelujah! And her smoke rose up forever and ever. (4) And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God sitting on the throne, saying, Amen! Hallelujah! (5) And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all His servants, and the ones fearing Him, the small and great. (6) And I heard as the sound of a great multitude, and as the sound of many waters, and as the sound of strong thunders, saying, Hallelujah! For the Lord God
Janke Geldenhuys www.jankegeldenhuys.co.za Download our 1 year bible program and implement it in your church free of charge

omnipotent reigns! (7) Let us be glad and rejoice and we will give glory to Him. For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has prepared herself. (8) And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white. For the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints. (9) And he said to me, Write, Blessed are those who have been called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, These are the true sayings of God. (10) And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, See, do not do it! I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. (11) And I saw Heaven opened. And behold, a white horse! And He sitting on him was called Faithful and True. And in righteousness He judges and makes war. (12) And His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head many crowns. And He had a name written, one that no one knew except Himself. (13) And He had been clothed in a garment dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. From these verses we can see that in the name of the Lord is safety, provision, protection and the blessing. There are many names of the Lord if you study out the Greek and Hebrew. In Revelations one of the names of the Lord is the The Word of God. This is the ultimate name of Jesus. So if Jesus is the Word and His name is the Word it makes sense that I should study the bible.
So lets summaries. 1. 2. 3. 4. Jesus died on the cross to save the sinner That gave us eternal life since our transgression is wiped out The death on the cross stripped satan from all his powers We can come to Jesus even if we are spiritually sick. We dont have to have everything together to come to Jesus 5. When we study the bible, believe it and do it we will access the promises of God The ministry of Jesus 1. 2. 3. 4. To seek and save the lost To destroy the works of satan To give us life and life abundantly To manifest the Word

Mat 9:26-31 MKJV And this report went out into all that land. (27) And when Jesus passed on from there, two blind ones followed Him, crying and saying, Son of David, have mercy on us. (28) And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said to Him, Yes, Lord.

(31) But going out, they made Him known in all that land. We have looked at two things so far under leading someone to Jesus The great commission is to lead someone to Jesus and to teach them the things of God Jesuss ministry we said the following 1. Jesus died on the cross to save the sinner 2. That gave us eternal life since our transgression is wiped out 3. The death on the cross stripped satan from all his powers

The ministry of Jesus 1. 2. 3. 4. To seek and save the lost To destroy the works of satan To give us life and life abundantly To manifest the Word

So we understand that its our role to go out and lead people to Jesus and disciple them. Jesus paid the price so that people can again have an intimate relationship with God. So how do we get people to believe Jesus is the way? Rom 1:16 MKJV For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. The first thing that we must understand as Christians is that we must have a confidence and boldness in our Christian walk with Jesus. We cannot be ashamed of Jesus and what we believe. We must tell someone and live our Christian faith out. The second thing is that gospel is the power to salvation. 1Co 9:18 MKJV What then is my reward? That when I preach the gospel I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I may not abuse my authority in the gospel. From this verse we can clearly see that we must preach the gospel and that we have authority to preach the gospel. So lets look at what this gospel or good news is. Gal 3:8 MKJV And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the nations through faith, preached the gospel before to Abraham, saying, "In you shall all nations be blessed." Gal 3:8 CEV Long ago the Scriptures said that God would accept the Gentiles because of their faith. That's why God told Abraham the good news that all nations would be blessed because of him. God preached and taught Abraham the gospel and said to him all nations are blessed if they choose to life by faith. In other words we are blessed to be a blessing. So the fact that we are blessed is the good news or gospel So lets look at this blessing Gen 1:27-28 MKJV And God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female. (28) And God blessed them. And God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply and fill the earth, and subdue it. And have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the heavens, and all animals that move upon the earth. So the first thing that God did when He created man was to bless Him

Pro 10:22 MKJV The blessing of Jehovah itself makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. A practical definition of the blessing: The blessing is the empowerment or ability to prosper in every area of your life 3Jn 1:1-4 MKJV The elder to Gaius the beloved, whom I love in the truth. (2) Beloved, in regard to all things I pray that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. (3) For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers came and testified of the truth that is in you, even as you walk in the truth. (4) I have no greater joy than these things, to hear that my children walk in the truth. Social, Finacial, Mental, Family, Ministry, Body Psa 107:38 GW He blesses them, and their numbers multiply, and he does not allow a shortage of cattle. The blessing will always produce increase in whatever area we need to increase in Gen 9:1 MKJV And God blessed Noah and his sons. And He said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth. Gen 12:1-3 MKJV And Jehovah said to Abram, Go out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father's house into a land that I will show you. (2) And I will make you a great nation. And I will bless you and make your name great. And you shall be a blessing. (3) And I will bless those that bless you and curse the one who curses you. And in you shall all families of the earth be blessed. Gen 24:35 MKJV And Jehovah has blessed my master greatly, and he has become great. And He has given him flocks and herds and silver and gold, and male slaves and slave women, and camels and donkey. Gen 26:1-5 MKJV And there was a famine in the land, besides the famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines to Gerar. (2) And Jehovah appeared to him and said, Do not go down into Egypt. Live in the land which I shall tell you of. (3) Reside in this land, and I will be with you and bless you. For to you and to your seed I will give all these lands; and I will establish the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. (4) And I will make your seed to multiply as the stars of the heavens, and will give to your seed all these lands. And in your Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, (5) because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My Laws. Gen 26:12-14 GNB Isaac sowed crops in that land, and that year he harvested a hundred times as much as he had sown, because the LORD blessed him. (13) He continued to prosper and became a very rich man. (14) Because he had many herds of sheep and cattle and many servants, the Philistines were jealous of him. From these verses we can see two things 1. The blessing is something that we speak. When we speak and confess the bible verses over our lives they will manifest for us. Pro 18:21 MKJV Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it shall eat the fruit of it.

2. The blessing is not the stuff like cars or healing. Its the empowerment or ability to prosper. Luk 4:38-39 MKJV And rising up from the synagogue, He entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was being seized with a great fever. And they asked Him for her. (39) And standing over her, He rebuked the fever. And it left her. And immediately she arose and served them. Jesus in the verse rebuked the fever because He was blessed. He had authority and dominion over the works of satan based on the blessing that God spoke in Gen 1:28-31 So how do we step into this blessing 1. We the first thing is that we have to be born again Gal 3:26 MKJV For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 2. Secondly we must start living according to the bible Deu 11:26-28 MKJV Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse: (27) A blessing if you obey the commandments of Jehovah your God which I command you today, (28) and a curse if you will not obey the commandments of Jehovah your God, but will turn aside out of the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known. 3. Be active for God and be active in your local church Mal 3:10-12 MKJV Bring all the tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house. And test Me now with this, says Jehovah of Hosts, to see if I will not open the windows of Heaven for you, and pour out a blessing for you, until there is not enough room. (11) And I will rebuke your devourer, and he shall not decay the fruit of your ground against you; nor shall your vine miscarry against you in the field, says Jehovah of Hosts. (12) And all nations shall call you blessed; for you shall be a delightful land, says Jehovah of Hosts. Joh 4:34 MKJV Jesus said to them, My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work. So lets summaries Rom 1:16 MKJV For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. When we teach people about the gospel they will have the opportunity to be saved Gal 3:8 CEV Long ago the Scriptures said that God would accept the Gentiles because of their faith. That's why God told Abraham the (gospel) good news that all nations would be blessed because of him. The gospel is that we are blessed to be a blessing Pro 10:22 MKJV The blessing of Jehovah itself makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. The blessing makes us rich in every area of our lives.

Leading someone to Jesus Week 14(Session 4) Am I saved? Lets again look at the 6 steps of faith. Since God can only be pleased by faith we must put these steps of faith into practice daily. So from now on each lesson we will do a recap of what faith is and how it works So lets look at the six steps of faith In Bible foundations we will go into much detail of faith but just in a nutshell lets look at the process of faith What is faith? Heb 11:1 KJV Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Heb 11:6 MKJV But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Faith definition = Believing and doing the word of God The six steps of faith 1. Hear it - Rom 10:17 EMTV So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 2. Say it - 2Co 4:13 EMTV And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to that which is written, "I believed, and therefore I spoke," we also believe, therefore we also speak, 3. Do it - Jas 2:17 EMTV Thus also that faith, if it does not have works, is dead, being by itself 4. Receive it - Heb 11:6 MKJV But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. 5. Tell it - Gal 5:6 GNB For when we are in union with Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor the lack of it makes any difference at all; what matters is faith that works through love. 6. Pray in the Spirit Jud 1:20 MKJV But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. 1Co 14:4a MKJV The one speaking in a tongue builds himself up Mat 9:26-31 MKJV And this report went out into all that land. (27) And when Jesus passed on from there, two blind ones followed Him, crying and saying, Son of David, have mercy on us. (28) And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said to Him, Yes, Lord. (29) Then He touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith let it be to you. (30) And their eyes were opened. And Jesus strictly charged them, saying, See, let no one know. (31) But going out, they made Him known in all that land. Pray in Tongues This message is a recap of the messages in week one under Christian Basics Salvation Its important when we speak and teach people what the Gospel is that we must know how to get them from unsaved to save. If you tell someone how awesome Jesus is and they want to give their

Janke Geldenhuys www.jankegeldenhuys.co.za Download our 1 year bible program and implement it in your church free of charge

heart to Jesus, what must they do and how do you help them in that process. In this message we are going to look at that. Rom 5:10-21 CEV Even when we were God's enemies, he made peace with us, because his Son died for us. Yet something even greater than friendship is ours. Now that we are at peace with God, we will be saved by his Son's life. (11) And in addition to everything else, we are happy because God sent our Lord Jesus Christ to make peace with us. (12) Adam sinned, and that sin brought death into the world. Now everyone has sinned, and so everyone must die. (13) Sin was in the world before the Law came. But no record of sin was kept, because there was no Law. (14) Yet death still had power over all who lived from the time of Adam to the time of Moses. This happened, though not everyone disobeyed a direct command from God, as Adam did. In some ways Adam is like Christ who came later. (15) But the gift that God was kind enough to give was very different from Adam's sin. That one sin brought death to many others. Yet in an even greater way, Jesus Christ alone brought God's gift of kindness to many people. (16) There is a lot of difference between Adam's sin and God's gift. That one sin led to punishment. But God's gift made it possible for us to be acceptable to him, even though we have sinned many times. (17) Death ruled like a king because Adam had sinned. But that cannot compare with what Jesus Christ has done. God has been so kind to us, and he has accepted us because of Jesus. And so we will live and rule like kings. (18) Everyone was going to be punished because Adam sinned. But because of the good thing that Christ has done, God accepts us and gives us the gift of life. (19) Adam disobeyed God and caused many others to be sinners. But Jesus obeyed him and will make many people acceptable to God. (20) The Law came, so that the full power of sin could be seen. Yet where sin was powerful, God's kindness was even more powerful. (21) Sin ruled by means of death. But God's kindness now rules, and God has accepted us because of Jesus Christ our Lord. This means that we will have eternal life. From these verses we can see that when Adam sinned in Genesis 1-3 that sinned entered into the world and that we all where born into a sinful state. As humans we can all admit that at once stage and many other moments we have sinned and we will sin in the future as well. So if we will sin in the future and have sinned in the past how can we then be saved? Well from the above verses we see that the word gift appears many times. Salvation is a free gift from God though His Son Jesus Christ. Joh 3:16 MKJV For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Rom 5:8 GW Christ died for us while we were still sinners. This demonstrates God's love for us. From these verses we can clearly see that Jesus died for us while we were sinners and our believe in Jesus secure our eternal salvation Isa 64:6 ESV We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. Our good works can never ever get us into heaven and in right standing with God. Its like saying that a serial killers must not get jail time because he helped old people crossing the street. Rom 10:9-13 GNB If you confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised him from death, you will be saved. (10) For it is by our faith that we are put right with God; it is by our confession that we are saved. (11) The scripture says, "Whoever believes in him will not be disappointed." (12) This includes everyone, because there is no difference between Jews and Gentiles; God is the

Janke Geldenhuys www.jankegeldenhuys.co.za Download our 1 year bible program and implement it in your church free of charge

same Lord of all and richly blesses all who call to him. (13) As the scripture says, "Everyone who calls out to the Lord for help will be saved." From these verses we can see that if we accept Jesus as our Lord and confess it with our mouths we will be saved. The first step to receiving any gift is simply to believe that the gift is yours. If someone gives you a brand new motor car you must believe that its yours. Once you believe it you can take ownership of it. Its the same with salvation. Believing in Jesus and confessing Him as Lord is taking ownership of the salvation thats a free gift. Col 2:13-15 CEV You were dead, because you were sinful and were not God's people. But God let Christ make you alive, when he forgave all our sins. (14) God wiped out the charges that were against us for disobeying the Law of Moses. He took them away and nailed them to the cross. (15) There Christ defeated all powers and forces. He let the whole world see them being led away as prisoners when he celebrated his victory. Isa 44:22 Darby I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee. When Jesus died in the cross He took away all our sin and nailed it unto the cross. We can clearly see from these verses that God wants to have an intimate relationship with us. He has forgiven us from all our sins. 1Jn 1:9 MKJV If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Jesus also tells us that if we sin in the future He will even forgive us for that sin if we confess it. So sin is not what keeps us out of heaven. The only thing that will keep someone out of heaven is if he rejects the free gift that God has given us for salvation. 1Pe 1:18-23 BBE Being conscious that you have been made free from that foolish way of life which was your heritage from your fathers, not through a payment of things like silver or gold which come to destruction, (19) But through holy blood, like that of a clean and unmarked lamb, even the blood of Christ: (20) Who was marked out by God before the making of the world, but was caused to be seen in these last times for you, (21) Who through him have faith in God who took him up again from the dead into glory; so that your faith and hope might be in God. (22) And as you have made your souls clean, being ruled by what is true, and loving one another without deceit, see that your love is warm and from the heart: (23) Because you have had a new birth, not from the seed of man, but from eternal seed, through the word of a living and unchanging God. The moment that Adam fell and sin in Genesis 1 3 we all entered into a sinful state. We all have sinned at one time and will do so in the future. Our sins meant that we were destined for hell. Through the old testament Gods people had to kill animals so that they wont go to hell. But this never lasted and they had to kill animals over and over. But then Jesus died and His blood is perfect. His sacrifice is perfect and if you only except Him as your Lord and confess it with your mouth His blood that was shed is all you need for salvation. Joh 17:3 MKJV And this is life eternal, that they might know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. Once we confess Jesus as our Lord we must grow into the eternal life. And the only way to do that is to know Jesus. We will go to heaven if we except the free gift that God gives us but there is so much more to salvation then just going to heaven

Joh 1:1-2 MKJV In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (2) He was in the beginning with God. From John 1 we know that Jesus is the word made flesh. If you want to know Jesus you must know His word. The more you study His word the more you step into eternal life and grow as a Christian. Rom 6:22-23 MKJV But now, being made free from sin, and having become slaves to God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end everlasting life. (23) For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. As we take hold of Gods word and mediate in it day and night we will produce fruits of holiness and living the life that God want us to life. You dont have to work at the fruit of holiness. You only have to grow by spending time with God every day. Rom 4:5 MKJV But to him not working, but believing on Him justifying the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Lets have a look at the difference between holiness and righteousness 1Pe 1:16 MKJV because it is written, "Be holy, for I am holy." Holiness is a process and righteousness is something we become the moment we except Jesus as Lord. Righteousness literally means to be in right standing with God. Holiness is a fruit of you intimacy with God and His word The way that I always explain it is as follows. Imagine and old and beaten up car. Thats you. But then one day you gave your life to Jesus. And in that moment that old and beaten up car got changed into the smartest and most expensive car that you can think of. That is the righteousness of God. Its something you become as a Christian and will always be. Sin is like mud on the car. The more you sin the dirtier this smart and expensive car gets. If you keep putting more and more mud unto the car you will eventually only see that shape of the car but not really the car. The car is still the same but now full of mud. Holiness is a fruit of spending time with God. As you spend more and more time with God you will end up sinning less and less and less. Your car will not get dirty that quickly. And if you do sin and get dirt on your car just confess it and God will forgive you and wash your car. So the car never changes. Your righteousness never changes. But holiness can changes and it depends on your intimacy with God. Joh 10:27-30 MKJV My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. (28) And I give to them eternal life, and they shall never ever perish, and not anyone shall pluck them out of My hand. (29) My Father who gave them to me is greater than all, and no one is able to pluck them out of My Father's hand. (30) I and the Father are one! From these verses we can clearly see that as long as we keep listening to Gods voices, that is the Bible, no one can pluck us from Gods hand. As long as we develop a relationship with God we cannot back slide. Joh 3:16 EMTV For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. As long as we believe that Jesus is Lord and confess it and spend time with God in His word we will have eternal life with Him.

Then we teach people about the gospel they will have the opportunity to be saved Gal 3:8 CEV Long ago the Scriptures said that God would accept the Gentiles because of their faith. That's why God told Abraham the (gospel) good news that all nations would be blessed because of him. The gospel is that we are blessed to be a blessing Pro 10:22 MKJV The blessing of Jehovah itself makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. The blessing makes us rich in every area of our lives. A practical definition of the blessing: The blessing is the empowerment or ability to prosper in every area of your life So the first thing that we must understand when we lead people to Jesus is to tell people about a better live in Christ Jesus. Telling people they are going to hell if they dont accept Jesus as Lord, is not the message of salvation. In Romans 1:16 it is very clear that the gospel or good news is what we need to preach. Mat 5:11-16 MKJV Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you, and shall say all kinds of evil against you falsely, for My sake. (12) Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for your reward in Heaven is great. For so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (13) You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its savor, with what shall it be salted? It is no longer good for anything, but to be thrown out and to be trodden underfoot by men. (14) You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. (15) Nor do men light a lamp and put it under the grain-measure, but on a lampstand. And it gives light to all who are in the house. (16) Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven. A couple of points that we can gather from these verses are 1. We are salt and light. When we choose to make a difference in this world we have the tools to do so 2. When we let our light shine and we walk by faith (good works) people will glorify God 3. We must understand that while we are here on planet earth we are working for our eternal rewards. We must become heavenly minded and then only will heaven back us up 4. When we start letting our light shine we can expect reviling and persecution but it is because we are reflecting God to other people 5. If we are not flavouring the lives of other people we will end up backsliding from God. An active Christian is a Christian that is growing in his relationship with God Joh 3:16 MKJV For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. If we look at all the different religions, Christianity is the only one that offers a salvation through someone that died in our place. The salvation is available for everyone that believes and confesses Jesus as Lord. It is a free gift to everyone. All other relations you have do works and works to earn your salvation.

So lets look at John 3:16 in a practical way

Heaven Heaven Heaven - Heaven Heaven Heaven - Heaven Heaven

Our Own Works A life of blood, sweat and tears. Where we struggle from day to day. A life where we need help from other people all the time. And are dependent on our works to get to heaven.

Jesus died in your place Its a free gift. A life where God will teach us to be the best and have the best. A life where we have more than enough so that we can be a blessing to other people

You can memorise this and explain this to anyone. Leading someone to Jesus is that easy. Dont use fancy words and phrases like everlasting life, are you saved, are you born again and so on. Just let your light shine.
2Co 1:1-6 MKJV Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints who are in all Achaia. (2) Grace be unto you, and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. (3) Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort, (4) He comforting us in all our trouble, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in every trouble, through the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. (5) For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ. (6) And if we are troubled, it is for your consolation and salvation, being worked out in the endurance of the same sufferings which we also suffer; if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.

Whenever we see someone that has a problem of any kind we can help the person.

(5) For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ. (6) And if we are

troubled, it is for your consolation and salvation, being worked out in the endurance of the same sufferings which we also suffer; if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. In this Paul says that if we have gone through any attach of the satan and came through victorious, we can help anyone that is in any kind of trouble. As you applied faith to get through the problem you can teach someone how to get through their problem. That is why the 6 steps of faith is so important and why we need to live by faith. The word of God is the answer to all problems Act 14:7-10 MKJV And there they were preaching the gospel. (8) And a certain man was sitting in Lystra, without strength in the feet, being lame from his mother's womb, who never had walked. (9) This one heard Paul speaking; and Paul, looking intently at him, and seeing that he had faith to be healed, (10) said with a loud voice, Stand up on your feet! And he leaped and walked. When we speak to someone about their problem and say to them that the bible has the answer and you quote the bible verse, faith rises in the person. Since faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17). Act 3:1-6 MKJV And on the same day Peter and John went up into the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. (2) And a certain man, who was lame from his mother's womb, was being carried. And they laid him daily at that temple gate which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered into the temple. (3) Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. (4) And fastening his eyes on him, Peter with John said, Look on us! (5) And he paid heed to them, expecting to receive something from them. (6) But Peter said, Silver and gold have I none, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk! Act 8:27-37 MKJV And he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasure and had come to Jerusalem to worship, (28) was returning. And sitting in his chariot he read Isaiah the prophet. (29) Then the Spirit said to Philip, Go near and join yourself to this chariot. (30) And Philip ran there to him and heard him read the prophet Isaiah, and said, Do you indeed understand what you are reading? (31) And he said, How can I unless some man should guide me? And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him. (32) And the content of the Scripture which he read was this: "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter, and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so He opened not His mouth. (33) In His humiliation His judgment was taken away, and who shall declare His generation? For His life is taken from the earth." (34) And the eunuch answered Philip and said, I beg you, of whom does the prophet speak this? Of himself or of some other man? (35) Then Philip opened his mouth and began at the same Scripture and preached the gospel of Jesus to him. (36) And as they passed along the way, they came on some water. And the eunuch said, See, here is water, what hinders me from being baptized? (37) Philip said, If you believe with all your heart, it is lawful. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. From this we can clearly see that the easiest way to lead someone to Jesus is simply to look for where a person is struggling and find the verses that deal with it and teach them about the gospel. And if you live a lifestyle of faith and have spent time with God and reading your bible, it will be easy for you to give them the bible verses on the problem that they are facing. Rom 10:8-9 MKJV But what does it say? "The Word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart"; that is, the Word of Faith which we proclaim; (9) Because if you confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.

So when the person is ready you can just lead him in a prayer where they confess Jesus as Lord. So what are the things that you can do every day to prepare your heart for winning souls? 1. Spend time with God everyday Act 4:13 MKJV But seeing the boldness of Peter and John, and perceiving that they were unlearned and uneducated men, they marveled. And they recognized them, that they had been with Jesus. 2. Pray for boldness everyday Act 4:31 MKJV And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness. 3. Know that not everyone will believe and might reject your message Act 4:31 MKJV And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness. 4. Live a lifestyle of faith Mat 5:16 MKJV Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven. Php 2:13-18 BBE For it is God who is the cause of your desires and of your acts, for his good pleasure. (14) Do all things without protests and arguments; (15) So that you may be holy and gentle, children of God without sin in a twisted and foolish generation, among whom you are seen as lights in the world, (16) Offering the word of life; so that I may have glory in you in the day of Christ, because my running was not for nothing and my work was not without effect. (17) And even if I am offered like a drink offering, giving myself for the cause and work of your faith, I am glad and have joy with you all: (18) And in the same way do you be glad and have a part in my joy. The easiest way to lead someone to Jesus is to just grow in your relationship with God and to allow Him to open doors for you where you can tell people about the goodness that is in Christ Jesus.

Leading someone to Jesus Week 16 (Session 6) - Healings and miracles Lets again look at the 6 steps of faith. Since God can only be pleased by faith we must put these steps of faith into practice daily. So from now on each lesson we will do a recap of what faith is and how it works So lets look at the six steps of faith In Bible foundations we will go into much detail of faith but just in a nutshell lets look at the process of faith What is faith? Heb 11:1 KJV Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Heb 11:6 MKJV But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Faith definition = Believing and doing the word of God The six steps of faith 1. Hear it - Rom 10:17 EMTV So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 2. Say it - 2Co 4:13 EMTV And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to that which is written, "I believed, and therefore I spoke," we also believe, therefore we also speak, 3. Do it - Jas 2:17 EMTV Thus also that faith, if it does not have works, is dead, being by itself 4. Receive it - Heb 11:6 MKJV But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. 5. Tell it - Gal 5:6 GNB For when we are in union with Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor the lack of it makes any difference at all; what matters is faith that works through love. 6. Pray in the Spirit Jud 1:20 MKJV But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. 1Co 14:4a MKJV The one speaking in a tongue builds himself up Practical. Discuss the following for 20 minutes: Mat 9:26-31 MKJV And this report went out into all that land. (27) And when Jesus passed on from there, two blind ones followed Him, crying and saying, Son of David, have mercy on us. (28) And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said to Him, Yes, Lord. (29) Then He touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith let it be to you. (30) And their eyes were opened. And Jesus strictly charged them, saying, See, let no one know. (31) But going out, they made Him known in all that land. Pray in Tongues Lets do a recap of what the gospel is

Rom 1:16 MKJV For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. When we teach people about the gospel they will have the opportunity to be saved Gal 3:8 CEV Long ago the Scriptures said that God would accept the Gentiles because of their faith. That's why God told Abraham the (gospel) good news that all nations would be blessed because of him. The gospel is that we are blessed to be a blessing Pro 10:22 MKJV The blessing of Jehovah itself makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. The blessing makes us rich in every area of our lives. A practical definition of the blessing: The blessing is the empowerment or ability to prosper in every area of your life So the first thing that we must understand when we lead people to Jesus is to tell people about a better live in Christ Jesus. Telling people they are going to hell if they dont accept Jesus as Lord, is not the message of salvation. In Romans 1:16 it is very clear that the gospel or good news is what we need to preach.
Lets look at the blessing in action. Mat 14:14-21 MKJV And Jesus went out and saw a great crowd, and He was moved with compassion toward them. And He healed their sick. (15) And evening coming on, His disciples came to Him, saying, The place is deserted and the time has already gone by. Send the crowd away so that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves. (16) But Jesus said to them, They do not need to leave, you give them something to eat. (17) And they said to Him, We have here only five loaves and two fish. (18) And He said, Bring them here to Me. (19) And He commanded the crowd to recline on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to Heaven He blessed and broke, and gave the loaves to His disciples. And the disciples gave to the crowd. (20) And they all ate and were filled. And they took up twelve hand baskets full from the fragments that remained. (21) And they who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children. Whatever we have is enough to be used by God The blessing will always increase what we have and can do The blessing will work once we start looking to others first We are here to represent Jesus to the world People dont have to leave you. You can minister to them

Mat 4:23-25 MKJV And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. (24) And His fame went throughout all Syria. And they brought to Him all those being badly ill suffering various diseases and torments, and those who had been possessed with demons, and those who had been moonstruck, and paralytics. And He healed them. (25) And great multitudes of people followed Him, from Galilee and Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judea and beyond Jordan.

Jesus was teaching and when He taught people, faith came, and then miracles started to happen. So do we have the same power that Jesus had to heal people and perform miracles in Jesus name? Joh 14:12 MKJV Truly, truly, I say to you, He who believes on Me (The word of God), the works that I do he shall do also, and greater works than these he shall do, because I go to My Father. Jesus says as we develop our faith we will be able to do what He did and greater Mar 16:16-20 MKJV He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned. (17) And miraculous signs will follow to those believing these things: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak new tongues; (18) they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will be well. (19) Then indeed, after speaking to them, the Lord was taken up into Heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. (20) And going out, they proclaimed everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the Word by miraculous signs following. Amen. As we proclaim the word of God, God will confirm His word by signs, wonders and miracles. When we teach someone on healing, healings will manifest. Our role is to be available as a vessel to be used by God. So lets look in the books of Acts how people allowed God to use them for miracles and healings. Lets look at seven examples One Act 3:2-9 MKJV And a certain man, who was lame from his mother's womb, was being carried. And they laid him daily at that temple gate which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered into the temple. (3) Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. (4) And fastening his eyes on him, Peter with John said, Look on us! (5) And he paid heed to them, expecting to receive something from them. (6) But Peter said, Silver and gold have I none, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk! (7) And taking him by the right hand, he lifted him up. And immediately his feet and ankle-bones received strength. (8) And leaping up, he stood and walked and entered with them into the temple, walking and leaping and praising God. (9) And all the people saw him walking and praising God. Two Act 5:15-16 MKJV So as to carry out the sick into the streets and place them on cots and mattresses, so that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. (16) And also a multitude came from the cities around Jerusalem, bringing sick ones, and those being tormented by unclean spirits, who were all healed. Three Act 8:5-8 MKJV And Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed Christ to them. (6) And the people with one accord gave heed to those things which Philip spoke, hearing and seeing the many miracles which he did. (7) For out of those having unclean spirits, many came out, crying with loud voice. And many who had been paralyzed and lame were healed. (8) And there was great joy in that city.

Practical Discuss point 4 - 7 Four Act 28:1-10 CEV When we came ashore, we learned that the island was called Malta. (2) The local people were very friendly, and they welcomed us by building a fire, because it was rainy and cold. (3) After Paul had gathered some wood and had put it on the fire, the heat caused a snake to crawl out, and it bit him on the hand. (4) When the local people saw the snake hanging from Paul's hand, they said to each other, "This man must be a murderer! He didn't drown in the sea, but the goddess of justice will kill him anyway." (5) Paul shook the snake off into the fire and wasn't harmed. (6) The people kept thinking that Paul would either swell up or suddenly drop dead. They watched him for a long time, and when nothing happened to him, they changed their minds and said, "This man is a god." (7) The governor of the island was named Publius, and he owned some of the land around there. Publius was very friendly and welcomed us into his home for three days. (8) His father was in bed, sick with fever and stomach trouble, and Paul went to visit him. Paul healed the man by praying and placing his hands on him. (9) After this happened, everyone on the island brought their sick people to Paul, and they were all healed. (10) The people were very respectful to us, and when we sailed, they gave us everything we needed. Five Act 20:9-13 GW A young man named Eutychus was sitting in a window. As Paul was talking on and on, Eutychus was gradually falling asleep. Finally, overcome by sleep, he fell from the third story and was dead when they picked him up. (10) Paul went to him, took him into his arms, and said, "Don't worry! He's alive!" (11) Then Eutychus went upstairs again, broke the bread, and ate. Paul talked with the people for a long time, until sunrise, and then left. (12) The people took the boy home. They were greatly relieved that he was alive. (13) We went ahead to the ship and sailed for the city of Assos. At Assos, we were going to pick up Paul. He had made these arrangements, since he had planned to walk overland to Assos. Six Act 9:36-42 MKJV And in Joppa was a certain disciple named Tabitha (which translated is called Dorcas). She was full of good works and kind deeds which she did. (37) And it happened in those days, becoming sick, she died. And washing her, they laid her in an upper room. (38) And, because Lydda was near Joppa, hearing that Peter is in it, the disciples sent two men to him, begging him not to delay to come to them. (39) And rising up, Peter went with them. When he had come, they brought him into the upper room. And all the widows stood beside him, weeping and showing the coats and garments which Dorcas made while she was with them. (40) And putting them all out, Peter knelt down and prayed. And turning to the body he said, Tabitha, arise! And she opened her eyes. And when she saw Peter, she sat up. (41) And he gave her his hand and lifted her up. And when he had called the saints and widows, he presented her alive. (42) And it was known throughout all Joppa. And many believed in the Lord. Seven Act 19:10-12 GW This continued for two years so that all the Jews and Greeks who lived in the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord. (11) God worked unusual miracles through Paul. (12) People would take handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched Paul's skin to those who were sick. Their sicknesses would be cured, and evil spirits would leave them. Mat 4:23-25 MKJV And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease

among the people. (24) And His fame went throughout all Syria. And they brought to Him all those being badly ill suffering various diseases and torments, and those who had been possessed with demons, and those who had been moonstruck, and paralytics. And He healed them. (25) And great multitudes of people followed Him, from Galilee and Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judea and beyond Jordan. End Practical Mat 28:16-20 GW The eleven disciples went to the mountain in Galilee where Jesus had told them to go. (17) When they saw him, they bowed down in worship, though some had doubts. (18) When Jesus came near, he spoke to them. He said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. (19) So wherever you go, make disciples of all nations: Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. (20) Teach them to do everything I have commanded you. "And remember that I am always with you until the end of time." From these verses it is very clear that we have authority from Jesus to minister healing to people and that Jesus is with us. We are not doing this on our own. Jesus is with all of us and He will never leave us. Mat 5:12-16 GW Rejoice and be glad because you have a great reward in heaven! The prophets who lived before you were persecuted in these ways. (13) "You are salt for the earth. But if salt loses its taste, how will it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people. (14) "You are light for the world. A city cannot be hidden when it is located on a hill. (15) No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket. Instead, everyone who lights a lamp puts it on a lamp stand. Then its light shines on everyone in the house. (16) In the same way let your light shine in front of people. Then they will see the good that you do and praise your Father in heaven. The easiest way to minister to someone is just to live a lifestyle of faith.

Leading someone to Jesus Week 17 (Session 7) Peter leading 3000 people to Jesus
Act 2:1-47 GW When Pentecost, the fiftieth day after Passover, came, all the believers were together in one place. (2) Suddenly, a sound like a violently blowing wind came from the sky and filled the whole house where they were staying. (3) Tongues that looked like fire appeared to them. The tongues arranged themselves so that one came to rest on each believer. (4) All the believers were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages as the Spirit gave them the ability to speak. (5) Devout Jewish men from every nation were living in Jerusalem. (6) They gathered when they heard the wind. Each person was startled to recognize his own dialect when the disciples spoke. (7) Stunned and amazed, the people in the crowd said, "All of these men who are speaking are Galileans. (8) Why do we hear them speaking in our native dialects? (9) We're Parthians, Medes, and Elamites. We're people from Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, the province of Asia, (10) Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, and the country near Cyrene in Libya. We're Jewish people, converts to Judaism, and visitors from Rome, (11) Crete, and Arabia. We hear these men in our own languages as they tell about the miracles that God has done." (12) All of these devout men were stunned and puzzled. They asked each other, "What can this mean?" (13) Others said jokingly, "They're drunk on sweet wine." (14) Then Peter stood up with the eleven apostles. In a loud voice he said to them, "Men of Judea and everyone living in Jerusalem! You must understand this, so pay attention to what I say. (15) These men are not drunk as you suppose. It's only nine in the morning. (16) Rather, this is what the prophet Joel spoke about: (17) 'In the last days, God says, I will pour my Spirit on everyone. Your sons and daughters will speak what God has revealed. Your young men will see visions. Your old men will dream dreams. (18) In those days I will pour my Spirit on my servants, on both men and women. They will speak what God has revealed. (19) I will work miracles in the sky and give signs on the earth: blood, fire, and clouds of smoke. (20) The sun will become dark, and the moon will become as red as blood before the terrifying day of the Lord comes. (21) Then whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.' (22) "Men of Israel, listen to what I say: Jesus from Nazareth was a man whom God brought to your attention. You know that through this man God worked miracles, did amazing things, and gave signs. (23) By using men who don't acknowledge Moses' Teachings, you crucified Jesus, who was given over to death by a plan that God had determined in advance. (24) But God raised him from death to life and destroyed the pains of death, because death had no power to hold him. (25) This is what David meant when he said about Jesus: 'I always see the Lord in front of me. I cannot be moved because he is by my side. (26) That is why my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices. My body also rests securely (27) because you do not abandon my soul to the grave or allow your holy one to decay. (28) You make the path of life known to me. In your presence there is complete joy.' (29) "Brothers, I can tell you confidently that our ancestor David died and was buried and that his tomb is here to this day. (30) David was a prophet and knew that God had promised with an oath that he would place one of David's descendants on his throne. (31) David knew that the Messiah would come back to life, and he spoke about that before it ever happened. He said that the Messiah wouldn't be left in the grave and that his body wouldn't decay. (32) "God brought this man Jesus back to life. We are all witnesses to that. (33) God used his power to give Jesus the highest position. Jesus has also received and has poured out the Holy Spirit as the Father had promised, and this is what you're seeing and hearing. (34) David didn't go up to heaven, but he said, 'The Lord said to my Lord, "Take my highest position of power (35) until I put your enemies under your control."' (36) "All the people of Israel should know beyond a doubt that God made Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ." (37) When the people heard this, they were deeply upset. They asked Peter and the other apostles, "Brothers, what should we do?" (38) Peter answered them, "All of you must turn to God and change the way you think and act, and each of you must be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins will be forgiven. Then you will receive the Holy Spirit as a gift. (39) This promise belongs to you and to your children and to everyone who is far away. It belongs to everyone who worships the Lord our

God." (40) Peter said much more to warn them. He urged, "Save yourselves from this corrupt generation." (41) Those who accepted what Peter said were baptized. That day about 3,000 people were added to the group. (42) The disciples were devoted to the teachings of the apostles, to fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer. (43) A feeling of fear came over everyone as many amazing things and miraculous signs happened through the apostles. (44) All the believers kept meeting together, and they shared everything with each other. (45) From time to time, they sold their property and other possessions and distributed the money to anyone who needed it. (46) The believers had a single purpose and went to the temple every day. They were joyful and humble as they ate at each other's homes and shared their food. (47) At the same time, they praised God and had the good will of all the people. Every day the Lord saved people, and they were added to the group.

Lets again look at the 6 steps of faith. Since God can only be pleased by faith we must put these steps of faith into practice daily.
