Contending Faith Bible Conference: Knowing The Truth took place March 23, 24, 25, 2021 in Gatlinburg, TN. During the meeting, Rev. Grier preached on contending for the faith that was once delivered for the faith. There are qualifications for the things of God. There are qualifications for being saved, being healed, receiving from God. If we think there isn’t, we’re not going to experience the promises of God or the presence of God. Today we have preachers that have never been in the spirit yet they are trying to tell people how to get in the spirit. Without knowing the Lord ourself, we can’t show others who He is. We have to lay down our desires and pick up the Lord’s desires. We don’t change because culture changes or because others change. We stay with the Word and the Spirit.
Throughout the meeting, Rev. Grier shared about the importance of prayer in a believer’s life and the need for the church to stop being so political – Jesus wasn’t political. He spoke on the the need of the church to take authority over the devil and his plans and the importance of the believer to ask the Lord in the name of Jesus. These messages were a blessing and a strong reminder of the truth that we must continually contend for.
