Confession of faith in the truth of the gospel and the Bible being the Word of God is necessary for becoming a member of this local church. What is required in confessing Christ is your own declaration of your need, to have believed in the gospel of Christ. You, as a believer, are receiving God's word as the very word of God. That word performs a work in all those who believe.
Speaking words of comfort, exhortation, and consolation all should be part of what all the people of God, should do and be able to do since we are children of the God of all comforts. That's one of the things it's necessary to have the Holy Spirit within us to do this properly and effectively.
We have to realized the sovereignty of God to carry out our walk of faith effectively accomplishing His will, knowing the doctrine which is taught by His Apostles. It's what Jesus was preaching about the Kingdom of God beginning now within the believer. Only those that are His children can grow to see the from the perspective Christ was, defeating Satan in this life.
Christ commissioned us to preach the Gospel to every creature seeking to win the lost. Glorifying God through the salvation of souls should be the highest priority of God's people.
Seeking the souls of lost sinners is the pinnacle of spiritual warfare. You cannot hope to be successful without prevailing prayer and supernatural power.
Lost sinners will not be saved unless someone prays for them. How many souls have been lost if we had only labored in prayer for them? How many more needless deaths must occur before we grasp the holy urgency of praying for the lost to be saved?One of the great misconceptions of believers is that all we can do to win the lost to Christ is to share the Gospel. Of course that is necessary to fulfill The Great Commission! However, most believers do not understand the responsibility to pray for the lost nor the power of spiritual intercession for those in bondage to unbelief.
In this lesson, we will learn three vital truths about praying for the lost and give specific prayer requests that supernaturally activate the power of prayer to see more people saved.
