This series is a verse-by-verse teaching from John, chapters 14, 15, and 16. These are Jesus' instructions to His disciples the night before His crucifixion. He knew what they would go through, and He told them what they needed to know to keep them from being overcome with grief during this trying time. The same things He spoke to them will work for us in our crisis situations. This series is a must for all Christians.
Don't Panic — Believe
Emotions always surface in a crisis. Learn to control them instead of allowing them to control you.
Put Things in Perspective
Your problem can become a mountain or be reduced to an anthill. It's all a matter of perspective.
A casual acquaintance with God isn't enough in times of trouble. An intimate relationship with Him must be developed before a crisis, not during.
The Power of the Word of God
Under pressure we often look for a special intervention from God and ignore the most powerful weapon of all. We have what we need. It's time to learn to use it.
The Ministry of the Holy Spirit
Praying in tongues and groaning in the Spirit: These are two vital ministries of the Holy Spirit in a crisis. Learn how they help.
Be a Doer of the Word
Knowing isn't doing. It's not the hearers but the doers who win.
Self-Centeredness: The Source of All Grief
To one it's a crisis, to another a distraction. What's the difference? The value placed on one's self-interest. This revelation will change your life.
Watch Your Tongue
Words have power. What are you releasing with yours, faith or unbelief?
Abiding in the Vine
What does it mean to abide in the vine? When you understand this, you will quit trying to get God to act on your behalf.
The Power of Love
Galatians 5:6 says, "Faith works by love." If your faith is not producing, then check your love level.
The Power of Joy
The same thing that releases joy can be used as a powerful weapon against the devil. Learn what it is and put it to work. It could end the problem fast.
Fruit, Not Failure, Glorifies God
If that is true, and it is, then why do we have such a hard time believing God wants us to succeed and prosper? That doubt is killing our faith.
How to Handle Persecution
The Bible says that persecution will come. So, expect it and be ready to handle it.
Sin, Righteousness and Judgment
The Holy Spirit convicts you of only one sin, He tells you who you are, and He reminds You of who has really been judged. These are all important for you to know in a crisis.
Prayer in Jesus' Name
Jesus gave us the power of attorney over His name. Let's find out what that means and start using it.
What to Do When Your Prayers Seem Unanswered
First, recognize that the devil wants you to think they're unanswered. Next, learn how to stop him and how to shorten the time between prayer and manifestation.
