THE PROVING GROUND: Proven and Promoted, pt. 2

Soldiers in the military must undergo a process called, Basic Training, before they are ever put in a real combat situation.  Similarly, God's people also undergo training, and that training involves tests they must pass in order to be promoted to more significant roles in the Body of Christ.  This teaching deals with the first of seven tests every Christian must face and pass if you want to reach the next level of breakthrough.  



Proven and Promoted

Problems, setbacks, and disappointments can serve an important purpose in your life...IF you respond to them properly.  People who are promoted in God's kingdom must undergo a process of proving. This teaching will help give you sense of purpose, and interpret the challenges in your life differently.

7 THINGS GOD DIDN’T SAY ABOUT MONEY: Eating the Good of the Land, pt. 5

Religious people are unfortunately very good at putting words in God's mouth in some cases, saying that He said things that cannot be found in Scripture.  Prepare to have some sacred cows toppled regarding your concept of money.  And prepare to have your mind broadened about God's desire to bless His people. 



WHY MONEY MATTERS: Eating the Good of the Land, pt. 4

From Genesis all the way through the New Testament, money and how a person thinks about it and handles it represented a test of the heart.  Therefore, if we want to walk in God's abundance and eat the good of the land, we have to get the money thing straight.  It all starts with the concepts discussed in this teaching.

THE RIPPLE EFFECT: Eating the Good of the Land, pt. 3

God's eternal desire for His people is to see them blessed.  But we are often our own worst enemies.  We so often act independently of God, seeking our own benefit and our own pleasures, and then we pay the price later on.  But God's heart has always been that we obey Him and reap the benefits.  This teaching provides three questions we can be asking ourselves that are related to how to position ourselves for eating the good of the land, and insight on the ripple effect that God intends our lives to have on others.  



Eating the Good of the Land

There are so many people in our world today who are so broken, and so many lives that are dysfunctional.  They have rejected the way of truth, and are now paying the price.  Even many Christians live with a vague sense of dissatsifaction and feelings of unfulfillment in their walks with Christ, and don't know why.  They are not experiencing God's best.  But Isaiah says that those who are willing and obedient will eat the good of the land.  This teaching kicks off the new series by addressing the disconnect between what God desires for His people and what many people are actually experiencing by the choices they have made.  This teaching also features a brief part of Pastor Andy's testimony.
