STUDY. The Presence of God breaks chains. About a sermon by Rev. Claudio Freidzon.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

Fresh from the city of Dallas (USA) Freidzon Claudio Pastor preached on the vital importance to our spiritual life to understand the difference between God's Power and Presence of God.

He had already preached about this on Saturday July 21, 2013 at our church [1] and I have this fundamental message to the city of Dallas, where he shared the platform with the psalmist Marcos Barrientos.

1. The pastor began the meeting by reminding us that:
a. In The Presence of God break the chains of oppression: The great victories obtained in worship and praise.
b. We wrestle not against flesh and blood (Eph. 6.10): When struggles arise with different people (at work, neighborhood, factory, etc..), Who attack us without reasons, we should not be angry with them, we must understand that are being used by the enemy to fall into anger and lose fellowship with God. When we entered the Presence, God gives us the strategies, the power and anointing to win those spiritual powers.
c. The circumstances can change, changes hearts Presence: The Pastor reminded us the example of the soldiers who came to arrest Jesus (John 18.3 - 6). When Jesus said "I am" they fell touched by the power of God. But did not receive that revelation of I AM, not believed (received no Presence) and therefore their hearts were not transformed. Just stood up took prisoner the Master. He also mentioned their religion taught in earlier and explained the differences between Exodus 23.20 - 33.12 Exodus 23 - 15:

 The Power of God
The Jews knew the power of the angels of the Lord and had a high regard, while the author of Hebrews noted the importance of explaining that Christ was superior to the angels (Heb. 1.4)

Let us read the following:

20 "Realize, Israel, I send my angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared. 21 Pay attention and obey it. Do not rebel against him, because on my behalf will not forgive your rebellion. 22 If you obey and do with all my instructions, I will be an enemy to your enemies and will oppose those who oppose you. 23 My angel will guide you and bring you into the land of these people that I will wipe land of the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites and Jebusites. Ex 23.20 - 23 NIV

This angel was powerful enough moments erase an entire enemy army. This is the power of God acting on behalf of the Israelites. But this angel not in any way spiritually minister to nor tolerate disobedience. It had only been appointed by God to defend them and help them against their enemies.

The Presence of God
Moses was very clear about the difference between "Power" and "Presence" which we can deduce the following reading:

12 And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people, and you do not know whom you will send with me. However, you say, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight.
13 Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now thy way, you know, and find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is your people.
14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and will give you rest.
15 And Moses said, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up here.

Exodus 33.12 - 15 RV60

Moses was clear that:

"Having a presence is the most important, because it is God Himself and He mana power, wisdom, equality, peace, joy and all the good that a man could want"
So Moses said to God: "If you do not come to us, not us up from here. But you do not come I do not move "

"The Power of God blesses, but the presence of God will make us a blessing to others"

Two. Presence How to bring home?

Pastor encouraged us not to settle for enjoying the presence of God in Worship, which is fine, but yearn to have it all the time with us, in the street, at work and especially at home. We are "Temple of the Holy Spirit" (2 Cor 6.16 B) The Will of God is that we are always in His Presence. His interest is to see us grow to the stature of Christ (Ephesians 4:13)
How do you do? We recalled the story of the prophet Elisha and the Shunammite woman (2 Kings 4.8 - 44)
That family had prepared at home a comfortable place where you meet the prophet fixed, because he understood that the Presence of God was upon him. In the same way we should "fix" (order) our home and invite the Holy Spirit to dwell with us!
"The Holy Spirit is with, in and around us as a mighty"
Jesus taught us that if we seek first His Presence all the other things that we need will be added unto us (Matthew 6:33).

Three. An error of our day

The Pastor explained that in these times, one of the problems that exist in the Churches (Worldwide) is that many do not distinguish between the Power and Presence. In the same way that in the times of Jesus the crowds gathered to receive from Him the "Loaves and Fishes": They took the miracles but their hearts were not changed. The same is true today, people who come to the Church with a crippling need receive your miracle, rejoice and go. Do not stay because they did not understand that it is more blessed to have the presence that only have been touched by His Power once.

The Presence brings:

a. Peace
b. Joy
c. Release
d. Life
e. Wisdom
f. The opportunity to live in the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Presence is received when we depart to pray, worship and meditate on His Word!

10 "Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
Psalm 46.10 RV 60

Be still, ie move away, book a place and a time to commune with Him
