2014 Convention..Day 3 (Thursday 24 April)
We have TWO key phrases:
The Mighty Hand Of God
(1 Corinthians 2:4, 1 Thessalonians 1:5-6, Acts 2:3, 1 Thessalonians 2:13)
Showing definitely – God wants to definitely show us his mighty hand
- To make Evident – He wants to make his hand evident
- To Prove – He wants to gives us proof
- To Show, or Manifest – He wants to manifest his presence
When God wants to demonstrate his mighty hand he places it on men. Every time the mighty hand of God touches a man a positive mark is left for life.
Just one touch of his mighty hand will change your life forever (Isaiah 6:7, Jeremiah 1:9).
There is no sickness God cannot cheaply heal by just one touch (Matthew 8:15, Matthew 9:28-29, Mark 7:33-35, Luke 22:50-51).
God wants us to continue the healing touch ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 9:17, Mark 16:16-20)
The mighty hand of God delivers wonders with every touch. There is nothing beyond the reach of the Mighty Hand of God, including the;
- Hearts of men
- Hearts of kings – Nehemiah 2:8, Nehemiah 2:17-18
- Hidden challenges – Psalm 21:8
- There is no situation the mighty hand of God cannot arrest -Psalm 138:7
- There is no mountain the mighty hand of God cannot level -Isaiah 41:10-16
- The mighty hand of God can bring solution to every problem of life Jeremiah 32:21

See also Deuteronomy 5:15
