Beacon Light Notes (08/25/19)

Three Words


Even though we don’t deserve this privilege, God has granted this privilege to us.

In prayer: we don’t believe that we don’t have the right to be heard.

We’ve entered into a season of rain, abundance, and overflow.

We know where we have missed it.

So we operate with a guilty conscious.

We don’t believe that we qualify to receive all that God has said to be ours. So we operate with a guilty conscious.

What is it that qualifies us?

Go up, eat and drink, for there is an abundance of rain.

Even though the people are not thinking about God, God is thinking about them.

Even while you are in your disobedience, God wants to bless you.

What qualifies us to receive the abundance of rain?

Although we’re not perfect in our actions, because of the sacrifice of Jesus, it qualifies us to receive the abundance of rain.

We have to understand: The fire of his judgment is not falling on us. It’s falling on Jesus.

If we receive to learn what God has already done, it blesses God.

The tithe is not an obligation, it is the blessing. It’s where it begins. The tithe is the root.

It’s all supernatural.
