Conference Testimony

The conference this past weekend at SpeedWay Christian Fellowship with Mike McInerney was amazing! There is no way I can do the conference justice in this article, so I will tell you a little of what I got out of it... The conference started with how we were affected when Adam and Eve "fell" in the garden. The "fall" left us with incorrect ideas, incorrect beliefs, incorrect patterns of thinking, incorrect attitudes and incorrect motives. As a result of this, we have an incorrect identity of ourselves, which is not the identity that Christ has of and for us. We got our identity from people as we grew up: from how they treated us, what they said to us and the things they did to us. Mike taught us how to identify the incorrect beliefs, where they came from, who they came from, how they affected us, and to forgive. When we identify where these incorrect ideas came from and forgive, we tear down satanic strongholds in our lives, and we begin to see our identity through Jesus. We learn to get our worth and identity from Jesus Christ and not people.

 Mike showed us that one of the meanings of "Lord" is "owner." When we get saved, we no longer belong to ourselves. 1st Corinthians 6:19-20 says: "What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God, and YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN? For you are BOUGHT with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, WHICH ARE GOD'S." Since that's the case, then everything we have belongs to God, everything that was ever done to hurt us belongs to God, and everything we ever did to hurt anybody belongs to God. Its like when you work for someone: you're not the owner, you work for the owner, and you must do His will - not yours. God is the owner, we belong to, or work for him, and we must do His will - not ours. If you haven't got it yet, this means WE BELONG TO GOD, and everything we do and say, (and even how we act) should be according to His will - not ours! When we get a revelation knowledge of this, we will begin to walk in the Spirit as we're supposed to! 

There is so much more to this conference it would take pages to write everything down. Speaking for myself I will never be the same, think of myself the same, see myself the same, nor will I ever look at God's Word the same again!
