The First Commandment


My name is Mike Bickle.  I am the Director of the International House Of Prayer in Kansas City.  A bunch of you have tuned in with us through the internet.  We have a life webstream of 24/7 worship and GOD TV is showing it around the world.  We are always so grateful for that, we want to say “Thank you” for a moment for that.


Anyway, here in Kansas City, one of the things we have done for the last 18 years of doing 24/7 prayer, is we have focused on the First Commandment. And that is such a significant statement that Jesus made.  In Matthew 22:37-38, I’ll say it again.  Matthew 22:37-38, He tells him, he says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul, all your strength.”  We know the verse.  And He said, “This is the First and the Great Commandment.”  Now, that was a new idea.  The idea of loving God with all of our hearts.  This is what God wants. 


Now, if you go back to the original context, in which God spoke that word, you have to go back 1500 years before Jesus came in... Start a free trial to watch the video and read the rest of the transcript!
