“The Bible is no mere book, it is a living creature with a power that conquers all who oppose it” - Napoleon.
Today, on Red Church, Joseph Z is in the studio with Heather Z, and they talk about coming boldly before the throne of God. They begin with the word of God from the Book of Hebrews 4:1-7, which instructs us not to fall short of entering God’s promise of rest, which He holds out to every one of us till this moment. Joseph also brings to our understanding that the difference between Christianity and every other religion is “Grace” because every religion, is hinged on doing and trying. Still, Jesus based our faith, on Done and Trusting. Again, he makes us understand that the word of God does not work unless we mix it with our faith, and when we get born-again, we must renew our minds with God’s word.

Joseph leads us to the Book of Psalm 46:4-11, which informs us about a river whose stream shall make glad the city of God. He interprets this river to be the presence of God. He further makes us understand that being still in the Lord, takes a great deal of effort, but if we can summon enough strength and faith to be still, God shows Himself most unimaginably. Also, he informs us that the word of God is alive, and in the words of Napoleon, “The Bible is no mere book, it is a living creature with a power that conquers all who oppose it”.
Moreso, Joseph brings to our understanding, that Jesus looked at sin in the flesh and condemned it, even though He was tempted as we are, yet He is, without sin. Given this, we’re yet instructed by God’s word to come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in the time of need. He further explains that when the devil goes to accuse us before the Father, he gets disappointed because our great intercessor is sitting next to the Father, on the throne of grace interceding for us always.
In addition, they make us understand that we do not go to God in our authority but in the name and the blood of the son of the Living God, for it’s not because of what we did, but because of what He did. Given this, Heather prays that we get the revelation of the finished works of Jesus while charging us to make our demands from the Lord, for He is able, fully equipped, and acquainted with whatever we have going on, in our lives. She further declares that answers, solutions, and healing are coming to us, for God is present, to do all of that we require of Him exceedingly and beyond our expectations.
