The Year of Transformation
Welcome To Charlotte Immanuel Church of All Nations
Sunday, April 14th, 2013, "Womens Day!"
Today was "Womens Day" at C.I.C.A.N! What a time we had!
The women showed up in their white and some even wore hats! Gorgeous!
On the behalf of Bishop and Pastor Williams, "Well Done Ladies!"
Hats off to Elder Sheila Strait and the Womens Department for doing such a fantastic job! A special thanks to all who attended in support of this special day!
Here are "Healthy Nuggets" from today's sermon!
Speaker: Pastor Denise Williams
Topic: Transformed Into His Glory
Subtopic: Change Has Come
Scripture References: St John 5:6-8,14
St John 5:6-8 (KJV)
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, arise, take up thy bed, and walk.
14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
Before you can be transformed into his glory and before you can know what his glory is you must look at your condition.
Are you WHOLE? Do you know what WHOLE means?
First miracle Jesus performed was at the wedding feast with the wine.
Second miracle was when the wealthy mans son got healed.
Jesus did NOT lay hands either time. He did NOT touch them.
He SPOKE a word!
Creation comes into existence with a word. Gods word!
When Jesus started his public ministry he spoke the word.
They saw him SPEAK the word:
1. Draw out- miracle of the wine
2. Go home-miracle of son healed
What hour was son healed? It was at that time when Jesus spoke the word.
Jesus only noticed ONE man.
The man had been impotent for 38 years! Can you imagine that?
Whats your excuse? Is it because no one knows the trouble you see? You think no one else goes through it?
Why are you still in same position? What are you doing in your condition when you HAVE Jesus?
Jesus is available to you!
Jesus asked the question to the man, "WILL THOUGH BE MADE WHOLE?"
We are in the same position. Jesus says, "WILL YOU BE MADE WHOLE?"
Has your condition become "normal?"
"When you are sick, you do not care about your hair, makeup or how you look if you need to go to the hospital. We have been tricked into coming into the house of the Lord disguised! All dressed up and masked."
Doctor asks, "Where does it hurt?" Jesus asks, "Will though be made whole?"
Points To Ponder:
1.The church doesnt ask if your sick. Who do you go to if your sick?
2. Where are the elders, leaders and consecrated people who will say, "Come on in, I understand. "In his presence you will be made whole?"
3. "Have you shut your bowels of compassion up?"
"Will the REAL church stand up?"
"Become your brothers keeper."
Free Tidbits from Pastor Williams:
"Jesus sent the disciples out two by two," "He did not mean for us to be alone."
"He told us to be our brothers keeper."
"We become stronger when we become our brothers keeper."
Jesus said, "Do you want to be made COMPLETE?"
In the Greek, complete means; ginomai
"Do you want to be made whole, complete."
"Nothing broken, nothing lacking, nothing missing. Wholeness in every area of life in balance with God."
"Being made whole is a continuous process!"
To get your change to move into transformation, first:
Get Up, Arise!
Whats your excuse? I'm single? No one understands. I'm widowed. young. Married.
You MUST go through metamorphosis! Its PAINFUL! During transformation is when you are a target of enemy. People WILL harass you to stop your movement.
DO NOT GIVE UP!!! DO NOT DIE BEFORE YOU ARE CHANGED!!!
CHOOSE TO CHANGE!!
CHANGE COMES WHEN JESUS SHOWS UP!
All you need is Jesus to show up. Problem is, people have dismissed Jesus.
"In order to be changed into the glory, "Put Jesus BACK into everything!"
What an anointed, powerful sermon taught by Pastor Williams! Many were set free and will NEVER BE THE SAME! We stand in awe of you Lord! To you be ALL the Glory!
If you take Jesus out, you have no fire. If you get on fire for Jesus, others will come to see you burn! The fire of God was truly in the place today.
