NOTES TAKEN FROM SERMONS BY PASTOR R. BRUCE MILLER
nderstanding and submission to the spirit.
(gifts of the spirit and the work of angels)
The sound of the trumpet sometimes signifies a call to worship (refers to rapture, the gathering together of the saints)
is sometimes a call to battle
I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh
the 7 trumpets of Revelation foretell the judgment on the children of disobedience, on those who don’t get caught up in the rapture
1Theselonians 4 the day of the Lord
trumpet/judgment for sin
the devil is the God of this world system. Jesus restores and gives us dominion
Romans 8:20 all creation groaneth
Judgment – 7 trumpets after the rapture, the day of the Lord, day of God’s wrath
* ye are children of light. “Let us not sleep as do others.”
Some have a form of godliness only. We must not be distracted.

edify one another!
*Be at peace among yourselves
warn them who live unholy

get in that glory realm through praise and worship
*God will move you forward!
we need revelation, and we need to be worshippers

As in the days of Elijah, the glory of the Lord is upon us
We stand for the truth of God’s word!
The Lord is bringing us into another season in the spirit
Every season brings new assignments
Know that his grace is sufficient!
God has proven himself and given us wisdom.
Today’s message is about understanding and submission to the spirit.
Revelation 2:29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches -
Have a willingness to follow – obedient followers of the word and spirit of god!
*We must be living in the spirit and understanding the ministry of angels in the lives of God’s people in this hour
Angels minister to them who would be heirs of salvation
gifts of the spirit
John 10:4 the sheep follow him
10:27 hear his voice and he knows them and they follow him.
He identifies us as his sheep and the shepherd leads Psalm 24
He leads us and delivers us
Hebrews 1 God spoke in old times to the prophets…now speaks directly to us concerning how we should go about life.
He speaks by the Holy Spirit
*Romans 8 as many as are led by the spirit….are saved, then filled and led by the spirit
lead a life hat is committed to prayer and intimacy with God, studying to share God’s truth with others
lifestyle in the spirit- baptized and totally submitted.
Warfare between the flesh and the spirit
When we sow to the flesh, we rob ourselves of strength. We must walk and live in the spirit
There are many strange voices, teachings and philosophies that are subtle and enticing. They are close to the truth, but not the truth if they deny Jesus Christ is the Son of God!
He who has the Father has the son.
Jesus is the only way to the father.
We need a greater appreciation for the works of Holy Spirit and the ministry of angels.
Psalm 91 is our focus this season
verse 11 he shall give his angels charge over thee! many involved in our lives
angels provide revelation ie: Cornelius – the angel told him to minister to the gentiles
Acts 10:3-6 3He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. 4And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, LORD? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God. 5And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter: 6He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.
Joseph was instructed concerning how to avoid Herod as the angel came to provide warning, insight and protection
Daniel 6:22 my god hath sent his angel
Daniel lead a life pleasing unto Goe. His name means, “God is my judge.” He had a heart of integrity and was blameless, constantly experiencing God’s goodness.
*Proverbs 3 We must trust in the lord with all our heart.
Revelatory gifts give insight supernaturally.
supernatural revelation: word of wisdom, word of knowledge, discernment of spirits,
word of knowledge – an ear to hear what the spirit is saying
insight on sight
listen to this again here
faith is received without the natural mind
warns of Things to avoid involving ourselves in:
The sons of Issachar knew what Israel ought to do. Know what is happening and the solution to the problem.
*Army of angels
gifts of the spirit
1 Corinthians 6:19 - What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
without him we can do nothing, but with him we can do all things.
He leads us into all truth.
*Try the spirits! There is an explosion of doctrines of devils as he said it would be in the latter days. A departing from the truth.
seducing spirits, New Age teachings doctrines hurting and polluting
*We will not be seduced, or drawn into a place of self-worship
This has been part of the charismatics movement for years of unbalanced teachings, causing them to delight in themselves, rather than God
A covetousness, self-exaltation, and self-glory with man being his own Go.d
Even from the beginning, the devil the devil sought to deceive Adam and Eve with his own plan. He thought, “I have a better plan.”
Jude wrote, be ware brethren, hold fast your profession, stand fast in the liberty, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding, hold fast your profession of faith.
