- Verse: "And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give." (Matthew 10:7-8)
Matthew Chapters 8 and 9 reveal the supernatural healing and deliverance ministry that the Lord was showing as the prototype of what the church should be, because He said, "These things shall you do, and greater things, when I go to the Father" (John 14:12). We need to believe God for signs and wonders and for deliverance. We've lost the power of God, and I'm not talking about just us as a fellowship. The church has lost the power of God because the power of God was being sought as an end instead of a means.

- Verse: “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.” (John 10:28-29)
Turn over to Ephesians for just a moment. We'll look at another passage, here, that speaks along these same lines of the great, great promises of our benefits are. Ephesians, Chapter 1, verse 3, "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us [not 'will,' but 'has'] who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ." "He has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ." What a statement! Praise God for this! He's "given us all things that pertain to life and godliness;" amen? (2Peter 1:3).

- Verse: "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified." (Romans 8:29-30)
In Romans 8, let's take a look at a couple of these verses and then go on and see what the Lord has for us. Chapter eight of Romans, verses 29 - 30, "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified." We'll be talking about this aspect as we go on in the study. The word justified; justification is an interesting term.

- Verse: “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Romans 8:29)
We are looking at the difference between positional and practical holiness; positional, of course, being that that we are in the finished work of Jesus. It's great to know that the work is finished! We are the righteousness of God in Christ. Can you say, "Praise God!" for that? But we're facing, on a practical or a daily basis, this conflict with the flesh. Does anybody know what I'm talking about? Sometimes you just don't feel that holy, but it doesn't change who we are.

- Verse: “And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him” (Colossians 3:10)
I want to tie together up some of these thoughts. "But now ye [believer, now you who are predestined] put off all these [things]…" (Colossians 3:8). He gives us another list, as if the first one wasn't enough. If you can't find any of this on your list, remember that the Scripture also says "and such things." I want you to know that you're on the list. We're all on the list. I look down here, and I look at some of these moral deficiencies: fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness.

- Verse: “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.” (Colossians 3:5)
"If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God" (Colossians 3:1). Set your affection on the things that are above. We can seek these things out of routine and discipline, can't we? We can schedule it in and say, "I'm going to seek the things that are above. Here we go." But where our affections are, where our heart is, that's where our treasures are. Set your affections on the things that are above. Where would you say you really are-what really has your heart? "Oh, Jesus has my heart.

- Verse: “And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.” (Colossians 4:16)
We'll be back to Ephesians, but I want to transition now into the book of Colossians. Colossians speaks toward this same thing over in Chapter 3. Let's turn over there for a moment. We want to deal with a couple of different aspects of how we get free from this daily warfare and how we become victorious in our daily walk. We also want to reveal things that many of us don't think are problems. The lists that are written here in Colossians, in Galatians, and in Romans. "And they that do these things will not inherit the kingdom of God." Of course, the Greek makes it clear.
