Romans 8:31-32

SERMON NOTES--Reverend Bill Cox

Expected Time of Arrival (ETA)

Luke 3:15

I want to talk to you about the power of expectation. There had been 400 years of silence. 400 years the Old Testament ends in the book of Malachi with silence God refuses to speak no prophets, no words from the Lord, and we move 400 years ahead and we pick the story up in the book of Luke. Where now the bible gives us a clue to how the atmosphere that the Holy Spirit was looking for to be poured out in. And it says

“The people were waiting expectantly and were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Messiah” Luke 3:15

  • The people were in expectation…it’s this idea the people were on tiptoes in anticipation and expectation.

We need to understand that if God is going to do something, he looks for people that have EXPECTATION.

  • It’s tiptoe time @ LifeSong. It’s tiptoe time for the body of Christ.


  • We need to be on our tiptoes expecting God to do the impossible again. With great anticipation and expectation where we are saying Lord, what’s going to happen in this service today.

Praise in expectation Sow in expectation Pray in expectation

Expect favor, a word of instruction, expect mercy, expect grace expect an outpouring of the

Holy Spirit. Because the atmosphere that the fire and baptism of the Holy Spirit is poured out in it’s when people are in expectation.

Colossians 2:14” having erased the charges that were brought against us, along with their obligations that were hostile to us. He took those charges away when he nailed them to the cross.

I want to announce today there is nothing between you and your God because he has removed it and nailed it to the cross and you need to be on your tiptoes with expectation believing God is ready to do something in this service. In this community, in this state and in this country today. IF YOU HAVE AN EXPECTED ETA.

This is the service that will change your life.

Expect God to pour out His Spirit on your family today. On you, on the people all around you. Expect to be delivered from fear, addiction, anxiety, depression, defeat.

  1. Throw Off Your Beggars Garment Mark 10:46-50 The govt issued the garment it was marked with color so when a person saw the beggar, they would know he is legitimate. You can give knowing he is really blind. The bible says when Jesus was passing by the blind beggar did something amazing. He took his garment blindly.
  • I know I can’t see yet, I’m not healed yet but if Jesus is anywhere in my vicinity I’m casting off my beggars garment expecting fully I will never go back to that way of life ever again!
  • My ETA is TODAY! And Immediately he received his sight because of his ETA.

Luke 3:15 the people were in expectation.

Luke 3:16 Jesus Christ is God the Fathers gift to you for eternal life.


the Holy Spirit is Jesus gift to you to empower you in this life. He Jesus will baptize you in the Holy Ghost and fire.

What does that mean? It means the Spirit desires to:

  1. Invade you. Warfare conquered to take over.
  2. Envelope you Eph 1:13 “When you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed in Him, you were also sealed with the promised Holy Spirit.”
  3. Delivers You He delivers you on your time of arrival to your destination. Removing you from one place and delivering you to another place. Protecting you along the journey till you get to the final destination.
  4. Instruct You. John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.*things we have no confidence to do, He will instruct us!
  5. Impress You As we become more acquainted with the Holy Spirit He will impress upon you to do things: pray, witness, give money, to leave places, to limit relationships you don’t belong here. Or you in a place or circumstance you belong
  6. Indwell You Jn 4:14 but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up unto eternal life.

All I need from you to receive this is to get on your tiptoes of expectation

I’ll finish with this Acts 9:17 Ananias Laid his hands-on Paul the religious scales were removed off his eyes. He was healed and filled with the Holy Spirit.

Today I believe in the hearing of this message scales are being removed from spiritual eyes. Today you may have come in with expectations that are now being met OR in your hearing of this word expectation has begun to build in you and Your ETA is today.!
