Message for October 15, 2017 from Pastor Jerry

“This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts.  Who are you, O great mountain?  Before Zerubbabel  you shall  become a plain!  And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” Zechariah 4:6-7

            We live in a time in history when we need to know the most important thing there is to know.  It is most important to know the power we have in us through the Spirit of God living in us.  If one does not believe in the total Word of God he cannot understand the power of God that rests in us, much less operate in it.

            It is sad to say that even many Christians do not believe in this power and many that believe are not experiencing it at work within themselves.  I believe that one reason this is happening is due to thinking we need to “work” things out.  We don’t work things out.  We believe it is the Spirit of God’s job to bring things to pass as the above Scripture says.   In ourselves, we do not have the power or might to give us the victory over our circumstances.  What then can we do?

            To live in victory we must learn to believe in the grace of God.  God told Zechariah that the “mountain” would be crushed and buried before Zerubbabel as he brought forth the capstone.  The word capstone can mean the top cover of a tomb or the lid of a casket.  Get a picture of your “mountain” buried under your feet.  How does it happen?  It happens by properly using your mouth and shouting “Grace, grace” over the capstone. You can’t win by fussing, cussing, and fretting over your mountain.  Grace is the power of God for salvation so focus on it and not your works of righteousness.  Life and death are in the power of the tongue.  Use it rightly.
