The Grace of Self-Control

Genesis 39:7-12, Galatians 5:22-24, Galatians 5:16

This Grace is connected with the fear of the Lord.

Gifts of the Holy Ghost never surpass the fruits of the Spirit.

  • The fruits only come out when you’re born again.

Salvation and self-control are expensive.

  • They may cost even blood and life.

Everything valuable under the sun goes through a test.

  • If you have a dream, don’t let anything kill it.
  • Joseph understood the dream he had.

The Grace of Perseverance

Message by Bishop C. Holla

(Genesis 29:18-28)

  • For 30 years, Jesus waited to start his 3 year ministry. That was a process he had to go through.
  • God’s friend, Abraham, full of god’s promises waited for so long for the fulfillment of the promises made to him.
