Project Description

“From Break Off To Breakthrough”

2019 The Year of …. Possessing Your Breakthrough

‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.(the anointing) In those days I will pour out my Spirit on those who are serving me

David said, “I watched the LORD break through like a mighty flood.” So he named the place “The Lord of the Breakthrough

I pray also that you will have greater understanding in your heart so you will know the hope to which he has called us and that you will know how rich and glorious are the blessings God has  promised his holy people.

 God did not give us a spirit that makes us afraid but a spirit of power and love and self-control.

Acts 2:17-21

2 Sam. 5:19-20

 Eph 1:18

2 Tim 1:7

Throughout this year remember… “It’s all about the spiritual”

On earth as it is in heaven”

We first breakthrough in the spiritual real

Then we see it in the physical realm

This year We’re building on the

 

The key to Victory (Breakthrough) for the Christian is

“Be filled with the Spirit”

The essential to all the Lord has

in every area of our lives

Breakthrough (BT)
I underlined so we don’t lose sight of what the Lord was saying

BT is a common “buzz word” today (science, medicine, technology)

BT in the Bible is one of the definers of God

His name

His character and nature

His desire to break off areas of the enemy and BT into His promises

Spiritual BT isn’t just “breaking through” it also

includes “breaking off”

 

David said when he faced the Philistines

2 Sam 5:20

“The Lord did it!” David exclaimed. “He burst through my enemies like a raging flood!” So he named that place Baal-perazim (which means “the Lord who breaks through”).

Micah prophesied

Micah 2:13

The Lord will open the way and lead the people out.

The people will break through the gate and leave

the place where they were held captive.

 

We continue our BT Series

from Break Off to Breakthrough

We continue by looking at

“Breaking Off

Areas the hinder or hold back

Breakthrough in our lives

 

This is the greatest tool of the enemy
for the days ahead

Breaking “The Spirit of Fear”

2 Timothy 1:7

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

We began with the foundation to
Breaking Free

Everyone has been impacted by this emotion

It began in the Garden of Eden when man stepped out of God’s protection

Fear (facts)

  • The prevailing feeling of society today (terrorist, fraud, insecurity, mass shootings)
  • Surveys show over 80% of the people say that fear is
  • the driving force in their lives
  • Causes sickness, debilitation, paranoia
  • The second most marketable subject of movie industry
  • Single most effective tool of the enemy

 

I said in order to defeat fear

We have to understand its characteristics

We have to be aware of the traps of the enemy

Once we recognize the signs we can break its influence and live in freedom

What is fear?

Fear is a feeling of anxiety and agitation caused by a nearness of danger, evil, pain or an expected wrong outcome of events.

It is a God given emotion aroused when we perceive something as a threat or danger in our lives.

 

Fear..

It is a positive emotion when there is real danger and the level of fear is in balance with that danger.

The “spirit of fear” is not based on

“real danger” (deception) and is

out of proportion to the threat.

 

We looked at major causes
of fear

  • Parental influence

Some fear is due to being raised an atmosphere of insecurity

  •  Past associations and events

Bad experiences from the past can cause fear. Memory of what happened can cause fear to persist and influence other areas

  • Guilt

Unresolved  guilt produces fear (condemnation)

  • Lack of knowing God

Incorrect, incomplete understanding of

God can result in fear

Results of Spirit of Fear

  • Sickness (cancer , heart attack, other maladies)
  • Bondage (phobias, addictions, emotional disorders )
  • Reduces activity and productivity
  • Sets up a “failure syndrome”
  • Removes self worth
  • Quenches faith, hope, love
  • Limits God

For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love and of sound mind NKJ

 

Fear (delia)

  • insecurity
  • apprehension
  • instability
  • loss of assurance
  • timidity

 

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy

1 Peter 5:8

Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

1 Peter 5:8 (Msg)

The devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping

 

The enemy comes to bring

  • insecurity

the thief comes to rob spiritual

identity

Word says about
the Christian

Rom 8:16-17 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ,

Rom 8:37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Rom 8:31 If God is for us, who can defeat us

John 15:9;13 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

The enemy desires to

Remove who we are in Christ in order that fear, doubt worry, anxiety can enter in

 

Remove our sense of God’s love for us which causes us to lose trust in Him

 

Why does the enemy try to remove our feeling of God’s love for us?

 

Because…

The Key to Defeating Fear

(Not determination, self help classes, vacations, denial, mind over matter, yoga or drugs )

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear (NIV)

Love has no fear because perfect love expels all fear.( New Contemp.)

There is no fear in love. Perfect love puts fear out of our hearts. (New Life )

 

Perfect love

  • Complete
  • Without mixture
  • Genuine
  • Flawless
  • God created

Fully translated
1 John 4: 18

There is no fear in love. But God created genuine, without mixture love, forces out drives away and locks out fear

 

Love – looks for opportunities to give

Fear – clutches and is distrusting

 

Love – thinks no evil

Fear – thinks of little else

 

Love– believes all things

Fear – Suspicious of everything that       everyone

Contrast Love & fear

Love– is busy at today’s tasks

Fear – is neutralize today for worrying about tomorrow

 

Love – forgives and releases

Fear – holds on and binds up

 

Love – leads to greater love and trust

Fear – leads to greater fear and suspicion

Love is the key

Here is how it works
