MIDWEEK BIBLE CLASS

OCTOBER 14, 2020 – Rev. Dr. Sherman J. Butler, Sr. (Facilitator)

OCTOBER 14, 2020 – “Fasting in the RIGHT Way, Spirit and Attitude”. Are you fasting correctly? Consider this: Why are you fasting? We’re fasting for GOD to do something in OUR LIVES – not begrudgingly. Fast humbly, in the right spirit and there will be a REWARD. (*Examples of Fasting in the Bible and receiving a REWARD from GOD) If you fast in the right spirit, right attitude and right way, you shall receive a REWARD for your fasting. Beware of “modes” or “ritualistic” fasting. You should see results from your fasting (inquire of the LORD if you don’t) because you should be humble in fasting and believe: Fasting should 1) Bring your body into subjection (under the Spirit of GOD) – you are crucifying the “flesh” and fill your spirit with JOY – , 2) Receive a revelation (or word) from the LORD and 3) Fasting brings DELIVERANCE in your mind, soul and spirit. So, as you fast and pray before GOD, there is an EXPECTATION that GOD WILL! Have FAITH and BELIEVE GOD while you are fasting. GOD WILL reward you for your fast – if you BELIEVE HIM unequivocally. “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you” (Matthew 17:20, KJV).r

Don’t get your own vengeance. Allow GOD to handle the situation. Read the WORD. It explains vengeance comes from the LORD. Stay Saved! PRAY! The LORD wants us to STAY SAVED. GOD has a way to handle the situation. You cannot handle it on your own. PRAY and STAY SAVED.
