Fully Restored Sermons Shanna D. Smith Do you believe God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus? (who was born of a virgin, and died on the cross)Mary was a virgin.

Mary had to transform from virgin to mother of Jesus. (Smith, 36)
Quickened by Waters Sermons Shanna D. Smith What are you willing to sacrifice? (for a better life)The Samaritan woman was religious. The Samaritan woman was of the descendants of Jacob, who drew water out of the well, who was an adulterous, who knew not what she worshipped. The Samaritan woman was audacious; the veil of Moses still blinding her eyes unknowing her hour of visitation. The Samaritan woman has an encounter with Jesus, who testified unto her people; who only believed when they saw the Messiah for themselves. The Samaritan woman became the first to receive the knowledge of the living fountain of waters by the revelation of Jesus Christ. The Samaritan woman had to step out from tradition to unity by the revelation of Jesus Christ. (Smith, 79)
Retrace Perception Sermons Shanna D. Smith Do you believe Jesus is the Christ?The Syrophenician woman was untrustworthy. The Syrophenician woman was of Canaan, who came from the coats of Tyre and Sidon; the merchant city, who begged Jesus for her daughter to be healed; who was grievously vexed with a devil, but was rejected and ignored because she was treacherous by nature. The Syrophenician woman began to worship Jesus and sought mercy for her daughter; if only a crumb could be spared. The Syrophenician woman’s daughter was made whole from that very hour by the faith of the knowledge of God. The Syrophenician woman had to step out from vain to confession. (Smith, 70)
Hidden Miracles Sermons Shanna D. Smith Do you believe Jesus is the Christ?Elisabeth was barren and stricken in years.

Elisabeth conceived but hid five months and was then filled with the Holy Ghost, when her child John the Baptist leaped in her womb after the salutation of her cousin Mary, the mother of Jesus, the Christ. Elisabeth had to transform from void to fill. (Smith, 31)

“We are not deceived, we are not shaken, we are not moved, we are not perplexed: but we are steadfast in knowing the Word of God; knowing the will of God, knowing the power of His Christ, knowing the goodness of the Lord leadeth unto repentance, knowing God is not a man that He should lie, neither the Son of man that He should repent.” (Smith, 7)
