They stand on the promises of God. About a sermon by Pastor Claudio Freidzon.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

Worship on Saturday August 10, 2013.

 1. Introduction

Claudio Pastor began his lecture by reminding us that we have many reasons to adore, thank and bless the name of the Lord. Being in need many times we have come to exhaustion, having tried everything in our power without success, and in those moments of pain and anguish, He is glorified in our lives!

"God is glorified in our weaknesses"

One of the most valuable things that God brings us to the heart is the hope. Men live for many days without food, drinking only water. Some days without eating or drinking. But hopeless life as dilute escapes between the fingers.
We are very fortunate, because we have the source of the hope that is the Word of God and we have secured victory in Christ, because the same power that raised Christ from the dead is at work in us to quicken and transform ( Rom. 8:11).
This hope that God gives us is what drives us forward, making progress in our Christian life.

2. Do not lose hope

 The pastor's sermon was focused to teach us that we must not lose hope or neglect. It is necessary that nourish with His Word, then God will look at our faith and help us spend all circumstances to achieve victory. And whatever you spend will be for our good (Rom. 8:28)
The Holy Spirit inspired the author of Hebrews to leave us a profound teaching from Him on this. Let's read the text carefully:
4 Let us fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to have come.
2 For unto us was the gospel preached to them as, but not profit them hear the word, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
Hebrews 4.1 - 2. RV 60
The passage speaks of the experience of the Israelites in their journey through the desert. God had rescued them from slavery in Egypt with the promise of becoming the "Promised Land". This word tells us to believe the promises (which remain in force!) Recall that the generation that left Egypt did not come out of the wilderness because of their unbelief (Hebrews 3.7 - 19). I mean, that generation did not "take advantage" word of hope for not having believed.

"What God promises remains"

3. Believing as children.

Learning of children. They rise carefree and get to play, no stress. Just trust that their parents will prepare breakfast, their clothing and will do whatever is necessary to be well, safe and happy.
The boys have secured this "child identity" to rajatablas believe all the promises that their parents do. And if the promise it takes, have the confidence to approach your mom or dad and "remind" the toy or treat he had promised in the morning.

"Having child identity is knowing that we can come boldly to the Father"

So we must trust (have faith) in the wonderful promises God gave us on our family, work, children, health, marriage, everything!

"Seize the promises of God for our lives"

How will we capitalize? Simply believing. Look at the history of Abram
When was seventy-five years God promised him an heir and he changed his name to Abraham (father of multitudes). He believed and kept alive their hope against hope, being arrived at ninety-nine years and still had no child. In Hebrews 12.12 says they were so old Abraham and Sarah that their bodies were "as dead". However, the power of God made the impossible happen and Sarah gave birth to Isaac.
God had promised Abraham: 13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no greater, he swore by himself, 14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless you and multiply you. 15 And he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. Heb. 6.13 ARV 60
God backed his promise (which also had sworn by himself) Abraham believed and came to Canaan. His father died in Padan believed and Aran.

4. Stages of faith

Faith has two stages:

                           I. Believe
                         II. Wait
                       III. Complications

Believe and hope
Israel was rescued from Egypt and taken to the wilderness by the way to the Promised Land. Soon doubted God, Moses. Spoke against their spiritual leader, and hardened their heart, fell into idolatry and as a result of this judgment of God and were not able to see the promise fulfilled. They initially believed, but when he came forward could not understand the need that time in the wilderness to be prepared, trained to get ready to snatch the Promised Land.

"Not that it takes the promise, God is preparing"

The wait has complications in the story of Abraham and Sarah is clearly seen that over the years increasingly difficult that might be parents. I spend so much time (had 100 and 90 years each, respectively) than it was humanly impossible for them to have a child. But in that impossible glorified God, that there is no doubt that it was by his hand that the promise was fulfilled.

May. We are heirs of the promises of Abraham
In the letter to the Galatians (Gal. 3.29) the Bible says that we are the heirs of the promises given Abraham.
God said, "I will bless." Blessing is:
a. Back
b. Favor
c. Presence
d. Power
e. Peace
f. Work
g. Offspring
So have faith, persevere in God's promises and see victory in all areas of our life.

"Never too late for those who believe in God"
