Proof is in the Promise

Proof is in the Promise


So many people in our world today are looking for evidence and proof that God exists. In this message from “Christ in You,” we are reminded of the promise of Jesus Christ that will be remembered for all ages – the sending of the Holy Spirit which established the Church. This is the powerful proof that God is real:  “Behold I send the Promise of My Father upon you….” (Luke 24:49), “And He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever….the Spirit of Truth.” (John 14:6).

Beloved, we can always count on God’s promises. In this message, you will see that the promise of the Holy Spirit is three things: It’s a Proof. It’s Personal, and it  involves our Participation.
