NOTES TAKEN FROM SERMONS BY PASTOR R. BRUCE MILLER
EARS TO HEAR
This is the day the Lord is saying to the churches “he that has ears to hear need to hear now!”
There are deceptions seducing spirits, try the spirits by the Word
There must be commitment for believers to obey
As we are empowered and submitted to the Holy Spirit there is the.
utmost importance of being led and filled with Holy Spirit
Acts 2:1 quote here
This is an important dispensation we are in now
Jesus told his disciples to go and tarry in Jerusalem until they be endued with power.
They remembered what Jesus had said: that the servant was not greater than the master and they would be hated as they had hated Jesus.
“As the father hat sent me, so send I you,”
Then he breathed on them and told them it was necessary that He go or the comforter would not come.
John 16:16,17 Jesus went on to say, “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.”
17At this, some of his disciples said to one another, “What does he mean by saying, ‘In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me,’ and ‘Because I am going to the Father’?
He spent 40 days after the resurrection with the disciples telling what was to come and instructing them to continue the work.
The work I do, ye shall do also
The works of Jesus accomplished through his body, the church
Holy Spirit sent – the "paraclete", “the one like the other one”
Cpt 15 obey me and keep my commandments The Holy Spirit is given to those who obey God. Old testament, only came upon kings, priests and prophets when the Spirit of the lord would “come upon” them.
After Jesus rose, the spirit dwells within us and leads us.
Know ye not that your body is the temple of the holy ghost

A well of water is now rivers of living water. John 7:47 1 John 4:4 4You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world
If any man have not the Spirit, he is none of his.
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
He gives us peace in these times
” “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer I have overcome the
Jesus’ earthly ministry was 3.5 years “He came to his own and they received him not” John 1:11-13He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10He was in the world, and the world was made by himings but you cannot , and the world knew him not. 11He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Jesus dame to represent the Father. The Holy Spirit represents Jesus.
God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit agree in one. If we are not born again we cannot receive fom God.
There are many things that you cannot _____ them now
When He the spirit of truth is come… not speak of himself…show you things to come… the spiit of discernment is necessacy. Seducing spirits, doctrines of devils, et.
Preach the word… subtlety of the enemy, warfare, deceptive, seductive
As the serpent to deceive. As the roaring lion to intimidate and deceive, social agenda, fake news, misinformation
The spirit of confusion in the world today\
People don’t know what is truth” challenge to the truth of the word of God
Quote: Daniel _______They that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits
People who once believed are beginning to question if the word of God is true
He will confirm his word by his servants by signs and wonders (2 Timothy 4:2)
To walk in the spirit and work the works of God we must believe. It is the anointing of the Spirit that makes the difference. It is the only way to victory in this life!
This is a wakeup call to draw people into intimacy
It’s a praying time. They that know their God…will do exploits. Who is on the lord’s side?
We are challenged to know the truth
I am the way and truth and the life
Holy Spirit leads us into all truth

Jesus is the word. John 1 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; He says, “Thy word is truth.” John 17:17-23 King James Version (KJV) 17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
A discerning ear and determination to hear what the spirit is saying to his church
We have to get ourselves in position to omit to allow the name of Jesus to be exalted
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice and they obey
You can hear his voice, to
If you call to me I will answer you
1John 5:16 this is the confidence…because we know He hears us
God’s mercy – we thank God for his mercy
Isaiah 30:21 thine ears shall hear a word behind you saying this is the way, walk ye in it
Pray in the Holy Ghost
He gives us a mechanism, a way to hear and communicate
The Holy Spirit helps our inability to know what to pray
Prays on our behalf according to the will of God
The children of Israel had been in bondage to the Egyptian system
God sent plagues because of Pharoah’s unwillingness to let his people go
“When I see the blood I will pass over you
Accept the blood of Jesus and be passed from death unto life
The Blood in Passover represents salvation
Passing through the Red Sea represents water baptism
Dead to the old, raised in newness of life
Led by the spirit like the cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night in the wilderness
The Jews had been exposed to the God of Egypt and had no understanding of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
They followed the cloud by day and the fire by night and were lead to their destination
Remain under the cloud, be led by the pillar of fire
50 days after Passover was Pentecost!
On Mt.Sinai the tablets were given
There was the outpouring of Holy Spirit
Moses came down from Mt. Sinai and the people lost focus, talked of going back to Egypt!
The enemy is trying to draw you back into bondage
Making you wonder if the bible is true
Looking for the melons and leeks, but all our help comes from Him!
God is still God
He is God and you are not
We are the people of God and cannot continue to worship the things of man
Who is on the Lord’s side
3,000 were slain when the commandments were given but at the old testament Pentecost, but 3,000 were saved and added to the church at the new testament Pentecost
We are in a new day – know the faithfulness and graciousness of God - Ephesians 4:27give no place to the devil Resist the devil and He must flee James 4:6,7,8 6 But He gives us more grace. This is why it says: “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God, and, now he speaks by His son!! He will draw nigh to thee
Find here: recognize that god is in control…
Stand strong, our redemption draws nigh
Look ahead and look up, look unto Jesus,
In the old days God spoke by the prophets, now He speaks to us through His Son!
The enemy is revving up his attack on the children of God
He is subtle and uses the deceitfulness of sin
If we don’t submit ourselves to the seducing spirits, the roaring lion begins to roar and make you feel fearful and speak against your own well being
Speak life! Death and life are in the power of your tongue
Respond to his accusations with the Word of God
EVEN AS IN THE DAYS OF Daniel
1 Cor 15:8 Be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord
Stand against the trials, devices, plots and schemes of the devil.
Put on the whole armor of God Ephesians 6:11 - Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Meditate on that Word day and night
My words are life
A word behind you saying walk this way.
Maneuver the minefields of this world!
We must be sensitive to hear and obey the voice of God.
They that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits.
Know His Very Heart!
After the Holy Ghost is come upon you, you have power to love, to trust God and to know that He is faithful. Power to witness!
Be witnesses for God
Matt 28:19,20 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Be
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Let your witness be spread abroad, your testimony, lifestyle. They will recognize that you have a relationship and know that’s the reason you have peace.
I’m sure the God of peace, be still, there may be weeping in the night but joy comes in the morning. Psalms 30:5 “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” KJV
We are not going to turn back, give up or let down;
It’s time to stand. Having done all to stand, we still stand!!
Witness to somebody. Let them know He is coning again. His return is near! Sound the alarm! Time is winding up.
We must be soul winners
In the world there is no hope. We have this hope and we purify ourselves.
2Cor 7:1 Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
Will He find faith in the earth when he returns?
You have the power to do the things that please God. He will prove himself.
