21LHCD7Z-1 – Randy Richey – LOVE
We can’t belittle the mess this world is in but we must magnify God. Randy takes some time to share some fundamental things going on today – not to derail anybody but to emphasize the fact we don’t have to be afraid. Don’t be afraid to live! This dialogue works to capture the necessity for the level of God’s love it is going to take in us to be vessels fit for the Master’s use – to be prepared to pray for those He is calling out to come into the family of God. It is not for us to condemn, for thereby the grace of God go we. We must pray. It takes the love of God to have compassion on the sinner (and the saint!). Jesus did not come to condemn, He came to save. Randy shares on the premise that he loves you enough to speak what he believes to be the truth as it lines up with the Word of God. Living a holy life but not loving people is not a holy life. Mk 12:30-31 “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, There is none other commandment greater than these.” There is a separation from those who are truly born again, who love God first and then man, from those who are just in a religious camp. This is a wonderful Scripturally-based teaching on the many aspects of love. Randy concludes with confession, repentance, renunciation, casting out demons, and praying for healing.

In this teaching on curses, Geri primarily targets idolatry. However, the whole premise is for God to be first in every part of our lives. Geri lives by the standard, “Whatever will glorify you the most, God.” That means dying to the flesh, but it produces the Overcomer in us. God laid out His prerequisite early on by telling us in Ex 20:3, “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” It was reaffirmed in 1 Cor 10:14 telling us to flee from idolatry. An idol is anything we love more than God. It could be addictions, money, ourselves, spouse, children, status, doctors, fear, rejection, anger or a host of other things that many would not consider to be idols. Geri shares an awesome mini-sermon on the principle of “letting go”. When God told Abraham to take Isaac up the mountain it wasn’t to kill Isaac, it was to kill Abraham’s flesh. Dying to self produces the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. Significant attention is brought to Deuteronomy 28 beginning in verse 15 with some eye-opening explanations of how these curses are working in our lives as a result of disobedience to God’s Word, either by us or through our bloodlines. When you are born again you don’t obey to be saved, you obey because you are. Obedience is the fruit of salvation. Idols have eyes but they do not see, ears but they do not hear, mouths but they do not speak – have we made idols out of ourselves? Could that be the root of so many or our vision and hearing problems? Have we turned a deaf ear to God? Geri concludes by leading the participants in prayers of repentance and deliverance and then having the blessings of Deut 28 verses 1-14 read.
21LHCD7Z-3A – Randy Richey – SPIRITUAL ORDER 1-OF-2
21LHCD7Z-3B – Randy Richey – SPIRITUAL ORDER 2-OF-2
Randy begins by giving an invitation for anyone who is not saved to come to Jesus. Man is made of 3 separate parts. Like our Creator, we are 3 in one – with each part different but inseparable from the whole – made in the image of God. We are spirit, soul, and body. The Tabernacle is the pattern for us today. Only we are now the dwelling place and not the tent. Randy breaks down the comparisons of Outer Court, Holy Place, and Holy of Holies to body, soul, and spirit. He uses slides to illustrate the points of the message. Looking at what a life in order looks like, covered in the blood of Jesus, has the Holy Spirit as head; under that is our born-again spirit which agrees with God, then the soul which must be transformed and last the body which must die daily. He then proceeds to illustrate what a life in disorder looks like and more extensively explains spirit, soul, and body. When our lives are in order Rom 8:2, Matt 7:16-17 become apparent in our lives and other people will see the Fruit. As we make the proper choices to believe God, study His Word, choose life and not death we are in the correct spiritual order. We can live our lives in Jesus and He will show Himself to others through us. This life is impossible except by the Grace of God with Holy Spirit empowerment. Randy concludes with a prayer for deliverance.
