“From Defender to Possessor” – “Spirit Filled Christianity” Pt.1

Acts 2:17-21
Acts 1:8
Matt 16: 19
Deut. 2:31
Deut 1:8

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

But YOU will receive power (the anointing) when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

I have given you this land. Go in and take possession

. “I have begun to give… begin to possess.”

Joel 2
Acts 2

In the last days I will pour out my spirit (Anointing)

Fresh infilling of Holy Spirit

We continue on: RELEASING THE ANOINTING

Turn to someone and say “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

The Anointing…

Enables  us  to live in the assurance of our needs being met so we can step beyond our abilities  and move in the power of the Holy Spirit. (Empowered to share Jesus).

Victory in and through our lives.

Throughout Scripture God has been trying to reconnect with man
Examples

  • Loss of relationship in Garden
  • Through Abraham-establishes a people unto God
  • Moses Burning Bush/ to deliver people  in Egypt
  • Mt. Sinai in the wilderness
  • Through David- begins a Nation
  • Through the Prophets of Old Testament
  • Through Jesus
  • Through the Holy Spirit
  • Through the Word of God

Jer 33:3 ‘Call to me and I will answer you

The major focus of the enemy is to remove man’s identity

When we lose our identity-

We allow the enemy to define us. (social requirements, conformity)

Even our ministry- ( nice- P/C focus on Fruit of the Spirit not Gifts of the Spirit)

The purpose is  to:

Redefine  &  Neutralize

We are  looking at 2 aspects of our Ministry

  • Defender
  •    Possessor

We began with

Defender

  • To ward off attack
  • To guard
  • To STAND

It’s time Step up

  • Take our position
  • Impact our “sphere of influence”
  • Live in the victory Christ has given us

We looked at

POSSESSOR

                                                Stepping into your Anointing

Our Christian foundations are being taken from us

  • Abortions:
  • 3,000 abortions in USA each day –  408,083 tis year- 3 per mi.
  • Marriage redefinition
  • Schools -Legal rights of parents- sex ed., bathrooms, disclosers
  • Banning the Bible any  literature, counseling which defines Christian values
  • Phycologist say “Mothers should ask babies permission to change diapers.”
  • 110, 000 condoms given to athletes at Winter Olympics (16 days)
  • 37 condoms for each athlete
  • Condoms will be issued to Boy Scouts at this Years Jamboree now that girls accepted

“It’s time to Possess”

To Possess to…

  • acquire
  • occupy
  • govern
  • control
  • Scripturally

 “To set the spiritual atmosphere” (It’s ALL about the Spiritual”) The enemy wants to redefine

Posses the Land

Deut 1:8 I have given you this land. Go in and take possession

Num 33:53 Take possession of the land and settle in it, for I have given you the land to possess.

Deut 1:21 See, the Lord your God has given you the land. Go up and take possession of it …Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Land In scripture

Gen 1:28-29 (to Adam)  Rule (, possess, authority) over the land

Today   “the land” represents

  • Your sphere of Influence”
  • Family
  • Job
  • Relationships
  • Health
  • Finances
  • Future

It’s time we (you)  Become a  “Possessor”

We saw

Pt 1 Keys to being a Possessor

  • God’s Word becomes the governing factor

(settles it, final authority)

  • See  situations from God’s perspective

God is sovereign

  • Led by the Spirit

Not circumstances, emotions, life’s trials

  • Live in Freedom

No worries, fears, timidity

  • Speak Faith

Speak of life

  • Posture for the Anointing

Living in expectancy

Keys to being a Possessor Pt.2

  • Take your Spiritual authority

Your right as a son/daughter of God

  • Ask and receive the Holy Spirit’s anointing

Lord I ask for your provision

  • Release the Holy Spirit

I claim that I am anointed and appointed

  • Claim your sphere of influence (jurisdiction)

Family /Job/Relationships/Health/Finances/Future

Protect (govern / rule) your sphere of influence

Prayer/Discernment/Binding the enemy/Speaking Life/Farmer/Shepherd

Keys to being a Possessor Pt.3

   Use Your Keys

Possessor Key Keys

  • NAME of Jesus
  • BLOOD of Jesus
  • WORD OF GOD

The next area I want us to look at    

Is ESSENTIAL  to seeing victory and becoming a POSSESSOR

One of the major reason Christians fail to see Breakthrough and get Victory

Tell someone : It’s time Step up

in the victory Christ has given us

Intro.

Last week I was interviewed by Stanford University

  • The topic was Evangelicals Christians
  • and particularly “Spirit Filled Christians”
  • One of the questions was
  • “ Is there a difference been Ev. Christians and “Spirit Filled Christian?”
  • My answer was “No & Yes”
  • The “No”- all Christians have received the Holy Spirit (Lk. 11:33; Jn. 20:22)
  • The “Yes” is-
  • I said the major difference  is “focus and objective”
  • Most Christians are focused  on “being a good person living a Godly life”
  • “Spirit Filled Christians” are focused on establishing the “Kingdom of God”
  • Reclaiming the what God had given to man and reclaiming what the enemy has stolen in their lives and others. (Luke 4: 18-19)

“Spirit Filled Christians”

Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed,   19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor

Mark 16:17-18 These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. 18 They will be able to handle snakes with safety (external forces), and if they drink anything poisonous (internal forces), it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”

Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Our focus at CELEBRATION  is on the

“Spirit Filled Christian Life”

If you want to

  • See victory
  • Get breakthrough
  • And become a “POSSESSOR”
  • It is essential that you are knowledgeable and functioning in the
  • Power of the Holy Spirit
Most Christians try to reach these goals in the flesh
  • Logic
  • Self abilities
  • Human methods

Important:

You cannot …

gain victory

see breakthrough

become a “POSSESSOR”

trying to do God’s will or trying to defeat the enemy in the flesh

Most Christians are not aware of these tools the Lord has given us or how to use them

  • You would not go into a meeting unprepared
  • Approach a challenged without a plan
  • Go into war without your weapons

Yet many Christians approach each day without the “Power of the Holy Spirit”

Rom 8:37-38 we are more than conquerors through him who gives us victory.

2 Cor 10:3-5 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ

The weapons we have been given to minister and live in the power of the Holy Spirit are Gifts of the Spirit

1 Cor 12:7-10 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit the word of wisdom, to another the word of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,  to another miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another speaking in tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues.

Important

The Lord has set your  destiny and has equipped you to be a POSSESSOR

Your  equipment is

The “Gifts of the Holy Spirit”

Our objective

To teach and learn how to operate in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Moving in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit Why is it so important?

  • RELEASES SUPERNATURAL FAITH

Ability to speak & stand on God’s Word

The ability to believe for the impossible

2 Cor 4:13

13 And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,”

Matt 17:20

I tell you the truth, if you have faith, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

  • RELEASES DISCERNMENT

Determine what spirit is involved

Ability to understand the spiritual

“It’s all about the spiritual’

Phil 1:9

that you may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment,

Matt 10:5-8

These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: … 7 As you go, preach this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven is near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.

  • RELEASES GOD’S WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE

The ability to know the situation and what action to take

 James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him — the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge

  • RELEASES THE PROPHETIC WORD THROUGH YOUR LIFE

The ability to declare God’s Word into daily circumstances

Joel 2:28-29

“Then, after doing all those things, I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions.

In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on servants—men and women alike.

1 Cor 14: 39 So, my dear brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy, and don’t forbid speaking in tongues.

1 Cor 14: 5 I wish ..that you prophesy; .. that the church may be built up.

  • RELEASES HEALING THROUGH YOUR LIFE

James 5:14-15

14 Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up

Matt 10:5-8

These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: … 7 As you go, preach this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven is near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.

Mark 16:17-18

17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; … they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

  • RELEASES MIRACLES THROUGH YOUR LIFE

Matt 17:20 I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
