Johan Huibers built a full sized replica of Noah’s Ark: 130 metres long, 29 metres wide and 23 metres high. It is located in the town of Schagen in the Netherlands.
God has a plan and purpose for your life. The story of Noah and the Flood was an actual event in history a little over four thousand years ago. It reminds us that God is in control of history and we need to be obedient to HIS call on our lives.
Fruit bearing is all to do with GOD working through us and nothing to do with what we can do.
The fruit of the Holy Spirit is love, joy, peace, faith, gentleness, goodness, kindness and self control. Are these evident in your life? You can quench the work of the Holy Spirit in your life. You can grieve the Holy Spirit. He is the third person of the Trinity. Do you treat Him as a person?
The Lord has picked each one of us out, selected you and me, and by listening to and trusting the indwelling Holy Spirit we will produce good fruit in our lives and businesses. We will be successful on earth and reap eternal rewards in heaven as well. Got to be the only way to go.
IT IS MUCH MORE THAN RICHES, IT IS A STATE OF GOOD OR WELL BEING FOR THE WHOLE MAN, SPIRIT, SOUL AND BODY, INCLUDING PEACE, JOY, HEALTH (MENTAL & PHYSICAL) AND MATERIAL PROVISION.
Shortened definition: PROSPERITY IS THE ABILITY TO MEET ANY GIVEN NEED AT ANY GIVEN TIME THROUGH THE POWER OF GOD.
God want us to be prosperous, to bear fruit in His Kingdom but in large part so we can be a blessing to others.
THE WORLD’S VIEW OF PROSPERITY
Good luck and/or hard work; Money; Authority over others; Fame; for ME, I’m the purpose.
KINGDOM OF GOD VIEW
God given blessing; Bearing fruit in the Kingdom; Well being of the whole man; For others – our purpose is to be a blessing to others.
We live forever and what we do here on this earth for God’s purposes is building up treasure in heaven. There are rewards in heaven. The Bible is clear on that.
The parable of the talents is a sobering story of how God expects us to use our God given abilities. Matt 25: 14-30
We will be working on the new earth and heaven creating and building new enterprises. What you are doing now influences the role you will have there. Christians will have their works judged at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Our character and works will be revealed as they really are and suitable rewards will be given by Jesus. This is not the White Throne Judgment of the unsaved at the close of the 1,000 year reign of Jesus. Rev 20:1-15
