There are many bold and brawny statements in the Bible regarding the believer's Cross-purchased authority and position over the powers of earth and hell. But many of us feel awkward appropriating such grandiose notions into our personal faith. For some reason, it feels presumptuous. And as a result of this hesitation, an ever-growing discrepancy between the grand promises of the Word of God and the modern Christian demonstration of the Word of God continues on unabated in our generation. But, we must ask ourselves - are these grand promises merely poetical phrases to offer us psychological encouragement? Are these promises to be deemed merely wishful thinking? Or does God mean what He says? It's high time that we stop lowering our expectations of God to the level of our personal experience and start raising the expectations of our personal experience to the level of God's promises. Because, if we actually were to believe the Word of God, we would find that the Church of Jesus Christ is supposed to be an unstoppable force within this world. (NOTE: one of our cameras had problems about halfway through the sermon and thusly, the final 30 minutes of the video version of this message is captured only from the side camera angle. Please forgive us for this.)
