#602 - Joseph Prince - Expect Good In Times Of Trouble - Part 1
When we say "Amen", there is something that happens in the spirit world. There is an agreement with God, with what God is saying. That's why we need to be careful about teachings or voices or even preachings and sermons that we hear that move us away from all the promises of God being for us into a place whereby people pick and choose, "Yes, yes, no, no, yes, yes, no, no". No, friend, all the promises of God is YES in Christ.
We've got to focus on right thinking, right believing, because that's where repentance comes in. The word "repent", "repentance", in the Greek is metanoia, change of mind, amen. It's change of mind. It's not all this physical demonstrations or if you're sorrowful and all that. Hey, Judas was sorrowful, but he went out and hanged himself. And it's an act of self-righteousness, instead of coming to Jesus for forgiveness, amen? Peter denied knowing Jesus three times, but he went to Jesus for forgiveness, amen? So crying and all that like Judas did and being sorrowful is not enough. We need to change our minds, amen. Praise God. We need to go to Jesus and just believe what his Word has declared.
The goodness of God leads people to repentance. Can I have a good "Amen"? Praise God, hallelujah.
