Bring It On-Line: Biblical Promises

How do you know I can claim a promise in the Bible? Why can't I just relax and rest in the arms of Jesus? Can you please tell me the reason or reasons why we pray? Do our prayers change the outcome of situations? How can I be sure that I am ... ... Read Transcript


TERRY: TIME FOR YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS, PAT THIS FIRST ONE IS

FROM YVAN, ARE GOD'S PROMISES IN

THE BIBLE FOR EVERYONE OR

PATROLSED IN CATEGORIES SUCH AS

PROMISES JUST FOR ISRAEL?

PROMISES ONLY FOR SAVED

CHRISTIANS, SPIRIT FILLED

CHRISTIANS, ETC.?

HOW DO I KNOW IF I CAN CLAIM A

PROMISE IN THE BIBLE?

PAT: START BY SAYING IS THE

LAW OF GRAVITY FOR EVERYBODY?

TERRY: YES.

[LAUGHTER].

PAT: CERTAIN PHYSICAL LAWS

FOR EVERYBODY.

LAW OF RECIPROCITY.

LAW OF GROWTH, LAW OF USE, FOR

EVERYBODY.

IT IS THE WAY GOD MADE THE

UNIVERSE.

SPECIFIC PROMISES, OUGHT TO READ

TO WHO IT IS, TO THE CHURCH, IS

IT SO AND SO.

I KNOW YOUR WORK.

THOSE IN THE SYNAGOGUE, SATAN,

TRYING TO HURT YOU, THAT DOESN'T

APPLY TO YOU.

SEE WHO IT IS TO.

THE GENERAL PROMISES OF GOD, YOU

CAN SAY WAS THIS DIRECTED TO

SOMEBODY SPECIFICALLY?

A SPECIFIC TIME INVOLVED?

YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T GIVE UP YOUR

MIND JUST BECAUSE YOU BECOME A

CHRISTIAN.

YOU HAVE TO ANALYZE WHAT IS

THERE.

THERE ARE TIMES GOD WILL TAKE

SOMETHING IN THE BIBLE AND SPEAK

TO YOU.

THAT THING BECOMES ALIVE IN YOUR

HEART AND THERE.

IT IS A WORD SPOKEN FROM THE

HOLY SPIRIT TO YOU.

TERRY: THIS IS HANNA, AFTER

MY SECOND MISCARRIAGE, I FEEL

LIKE I AM AT WAR WITHIN MYSELF.

FEAR SEEMS TO BE TAKING ME OVER

AND DOUBT.

I KNOW GOD HAS GOOD INTENTIONS,

WHY CAN'T I PROTECT HIM WITH MY

WHOLE HEART.

WHY CAN'T I RELAX AND REST IN

THE ARMS OF JESUS?

PAT: YOU HAVE GIVEN THE

ANSWER TO YOUR OWN QUESTION, WHY

DON'T YOU?

IT IS THAT SIMPLE.

IT IS GOD'S BLESSING FOR YOU,

WHY CAN'T I TRUST THE LORD.

TERRY: DO YOU THINK

CONFESSING FEAR AND ASKING

FORGIVENESS?

PAT: JOB SAID I FEARED A FEAR

AND CAME UPON ME.

I FEARED A FEAR AND CAME UPON

ME.

A MAN SHALL EAT GOOD BY THE

FRUIT OF HIS LIPS.

SPEAK!

I AM WHOLE, I AM WELL, I AM

BLESSED BY GOD, TODAY IS A DAY

OF BLESSING.

INSTEAD OF THAT, I AM TRYING TO

FIGHT.

TODAY I AM GOING TO FIGHT THE

FIGHT I AM GOING TO HAVE A

MISCARRIAGE, NO.

PRAISE GOD.

AND INGGOD OF

MIRACLES.

TERRY: THIS IS DAVID, I AM A

REGULAR VIEWER AND LOVE YOUR

SHOW.

CAN YOU TELL ME WHY WE PRAY?

WHY OTHER THAN TO PLEASE GOD?

DO OUR PRAYERS CHANGE THE

OUTCOME OF SITUATIONS, MANY

PEOPLE WONDER ABOUT THIS.

PAT: OF COURSE OUR PRAYERS

CHANGE THIS.

JESUS IS SAYING IN TIME OF

TROUBLE THERE IN ISRAEL YOUR

PRAYERS WOULD BE EFFECTIVE IN

CHANGING THE TIME.

YES.

MAKE YOUR REQUESTS KNOWN UNTO

GOD PRAYER AND INTERCESSION.

START BY PRAISING HIM.

WHY DO YOU TALK TO YOUR FATHER

OR MOTHER?

WHY DO YOU TALK TO YOUR WIFE?

YOUR HUSBAND.

WOULDN'T THAT BE A TERRIBLE

THING TO NEVER TALK?

PRAYER IS A COMMUNION WHERE YOUR

SPIRIT IS BEING BUILT UP AS YOU

ARE *

TRUST WITH THE LORD AND IN

COMMUNION WITH GOD.

THAT IS WHAT PRAYER IS.

THE ASKING PART IS ONLY A TINY,

TINY PART OF PRAYER.

ALL RIGHT.

ONE LAST.

TERRY: THIS IS DENISE, FOR

MANY YEARS IN MY CHRISTIAN LIFE,

I PRAYED AND TRUSTED GOD TO LEAD

ME.

I SAW GOD WORK MIRACLES FOR ME

AND MY FAMILY.

THINGS WENT BADLY FOR A FEW

YEARS, I BECAME CONFUSED AND

MISSED WHAT GOD WAS TELLING ME.

HOW CAN I BE SURE I AM

UNDERSTANDING WHAT GOD IS SAYING

AND NOT WHAT I WANT IT TO BE?

PAT: THAT IS A THING WE ALL

HAVE A PROBLEM WITH, ARE WE

HEARING FROM GOD OR OURSELVES?

WE ARE HEARING THE WORLD, FLESH,

DEVIL.

ALWAYS PULLING AT US.

HOW DO YOU KNOW BY WALKING WITH

HIM?

I RECOMMEND YOU SPEND TIME, GO

APART, YOU AND THE BIBLE AND

SATURDAY TALKING TO THE LORD,

CONFESS YOUR DOUBTS, CONFESS

YOUR PROBLEM AND ASK GOD TO

SPEAK TO YOU.

IF YOU WAIT ON HIM A WHILE, WAIT

ON THE LORD.

OKAY.

TERRY: THIS IS KELLY, PAT,

OUR DAUGHTER WHO IS EIGHTEEN

MARRIED A MAN 29 AGAINST OUR

WISHES, HE HAS NO JOB OR DESIRE

TO WORK.

HE HAS BEEN IN JAIL THREE TIMES.

MY DAUGHTER SOLD HER CAR TO GET

HIM OUT OF JAIL THE LAST TIME.

ALSO DROPPED OUT OF COLLEGE AND

BOTH LIVE WITH HIS GRANDMA ALSO

IN JAIL.

HER DAD AND I HAVE GREAT CONCERN

AND WORRY, WHAT CAN WE DO AS

PARENTS?

PAT: YOU DESCRIBED ONE OF THE

MOST DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILIES I

THINK I HAVE HEARD ABOUT.

THAT IS THE PRICE OF REBELLION.

YOUR CHILD IS IN REBELLION, YOU

DIDN'T TEACH YOUR CHILD TO OBEY

YOU AND LISTEN TO YOU.

SHE IS DOING HER OWN THING AND

BEARING THE CONSEQUENCES.

RECOMMEND YOU TELL HER DAUGHTER

YOU LOVE HER, ALWAYS WELCOME TO

COME HOME WHEN THINGS DON'T WORK

OUT AND WON'T WORK OUT.

TELL HER YOU LOVE HER AND BEYOND

THAT, TURN HER OVER TO THE LORD

AND LET HIM TAKE CARE OF HER.

TERRY: THAT IS ALL THE TIME.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR QUESTIONS

IT HAS BEEN WONDERFUL.
