2021.10.30 Study of Evangelism - Things Not Working Out Is the Blessing (Matthew 16:20)

After Peter’s confession of Christ, Jesus gave a great blessing, then He told him not to say anything yet. Jesus wanted to change Peter’s thoughts on the Mount of Transfiguration. He also wanted him to see the incident at Calvary and listen to the content that would be given at the Mt. of Olives. Jesus also wanted him to experience the works of Mark's upper room and make preparations for the Church at Antioch. So, if things aren’t working out for you right now, consider it a blessing.

1. An Opportunity to Renew Yourself

1) Matthew 16:16 – Those Who Made This Confession

2) 2 Corinthians 5:17 – Became a New Creation

3) Galatians 2:20 – It is no longer “I” who live. I” who faced destruction was crucified on the cross and now live inside of Christ.

Restore Genesis 1:27 – God’s Throne in You

Restore Genesis 2:7 – The Power of Transcending Time and Space in You

Restore Genesis 2:1-18 – The Blessing of the Garden of Eden – The Light in You

▷ This is salvation. (1 Corinthians 1:18 – Salvation is the Power of God)

2. An Opportunity to Renew Prayer

1) Only Christ 2) Only God’s Kingdom 3) Only Holy Spirit

Prayer is receiving the throne, the transcendence of time and space, and the blessing of light from above.

3. An Opportunity to Renew Evangelism

1) Those Who Remain 2) Pilgrims 3) Conquerors Who Have Defeated Darkness

Evangelism is the throne appearing in the fields that you move. (Matt. 28:20, Mk. 16:19-20, & Ac. 1:8)
