It is clear that we need Intellectual education and supernatural experience.

God wants to forgive you & heal you!
Would you prefer ugliness to be magnified, or for the LORD to be magnified? Really? Because you have opportunity every day to overlook foolishness in order to keep sight of, and magnify, Jesus. We each choose, daily, what will be magnified. 35 minutes.
The Apostle Paul wrote, "I can do all things through him who strengthens me." What does that mean? This message looks at this statement in the context of the rest of Philippians chapter 4.
4 ways on how we can serve Him in this life in light of the victory we have in Jesus.
If God has done it for one, He will do it for you!
In I Corinthians 15 Paul has established that Jesus rose from the dead. He has assured us that we too will rise from the dead. He has explained what our glorified bodies will be like and now Paul reveals a mystery, a truth that had not been explained in the Old Testament and more detail about the resurrection than what was known before. I. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God A. We shall not all sleep (I Corinthians 15:50, 51) B. We will all be changed 1. In a moment 2. In a twinkling of an eye 3. At the last trumpet II. Corruption cannot inherit incorruption A. The trumpet will sound B. The dead will be raised incorruptible (I Corinthians 15:52) C. We who are alive will be changed D. We have to change to live in heaven 1. This corruptible must put on incorruption (I Corinthians 15:53) 2. This mortal must put on immortality III. Death will be destroyed A. When we become incorruptible and immortal (I Corinthians 15:54) B. Death will be swallowed up in victory 1. Death where is your sting now (I Corinthians 15:55, Isaiah 25:8, Hosea 13:14) 2. Hades where is your victory – the place of death has no hold on us C. We know the heart of the power of death because of sin (I Cor. 15:56, 57, I John1:7) 1. We all are dying because of sin 2. We recognize sin because of the law 3. Unforgiven sin is the venom that separates the lost soul from heaven (eternal death) 4. Without sin death is just a doorway we step through to eternal life D. Sin, the law and consequently death will be removed in the next life IV. So how should we live in light of all this? A. With thanks (I Corinthians 15:57) 1. To God for the victory 2. Through our Lord Jesus Christ B. We must be steadfast (I Corinthians 15:58) C. We must be immovable D. We must be abounding in the work of the Lord E. We can know that our labor is not in vain (Rom. 8:18, Philippians 3:7, 8, Rev. 22:12) We can de confident that Jesus has risen and since He has risen we know that we will rise too. We will rise in incorruptible, imperishable, powerful bodies. This knowledge allows us to live without fear, motivates us to work hard for the God we will one day see face to face and answer to, and reminds us that the labor we do for the kingdom last for eternity. Our labor is not in vain, it has eternal consequences.
