Keys to Being Used by God- Pt.3 + The Spiritual Significance of Reinstating Israel’s Capital – Jerusalem

 

Matt 28:18-20
1 Peter 2:9
Jn 15:16-17
Mat 10:1
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.  Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

You are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit — fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.

Jesus summoned His disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness

Our focus for 2017 :

Releasing the power of God  through your life

Turn to someone and say It’s All About the Spiritual

(Recent events)

Key to 2017
Year of Breakthrough

In order to see the BREAKTHROUGH in the Physical Realm

You have to BREAKTHROUGH in  the Spiritual Realm

(It’s all Spiritual”)

Jesus said Matt 6:9-10

“This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,   your kingdom come(spiritual)

your will be done on earth (physical)

as it is in heaven (spiritual)

Our last series

Defeating the Enemy

Luke 10:19

Jesus said, ..I have given you authority …to overcome all the power of the enemy

I said ..

“If you don’t take authority…

You are giving authority”

Key 2017
Year of Breakthrough

In order to see the BREAKTHROUGH in the Physical Realm

You have to BREAKTHROUGH in  the Spiritual Realm

Not only breaking the power of the enemy

But releasing the power of the Holy Spirit

Just as we have to become knowledgeable of the enemy

We have to become  knowledgeable of the Holy Spirit

We looked at

Understanding the role of the Holy Spirit in your life  for the days ahead

Step 1

Again Our focus for 2017 :

Releasing the power of God  through your life

Our next focus in equipping us for Breakthrough

We continue our series Discovering and Defining Your MINISTRY

Next part 4

“Vision for the future gives purpose for the future”

Eph 1:18-20

My prayer is that understanding will flood your heart and that you will understand the hope that was given to you when God chose you. Then you will discover the glorious blessings that will be yours together with all of God’s people.

I want you to know about the great and mighty power that God has for us followers. It is the same wonderful power he used 20when he raised Christ from death and let him sit at his right side in heaven.

 

  • Many Christians say “I know that I am to be a witness of Christ on earth.
  • I know that the my relationship with God is for a purpose.
  • I know that my destiny is related to my ministry.
  • I desire to be used by God and to be led by the Holy Spirit
  • I want to see my ministry for the Lord really help people
  • I can see what the enemy is doing all around me
  • I want to be effective and rerelease my ministry”
  • but…
  • How do I do it?

So many Christians  fall into traps

So caught up in their own problems

“How can I minister to others, I have too many challenges of my own”

Not living in confident faith

“I don’t know if I can believe God to minister to others”

Inward looking not outward looking

“I know they’re hurting people but I have needs too”

Not living in the victory God has intended

“I need to be have my problems resolved before I can minister to others

Results -Allowing circumstances to dictate ministry ..

Results.. Ministry  “Neutralized”

We continue our next series with these promises

1 Peter 2:9-10   But I have chosen you, … that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Isa 43:1   Now this is what the Lord says. I created you and have fashioned , “Don’t be afraid, because I have saved you. I have called you by name, and you are mine.

Jer 29:11-12

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Est 4:14

you have come to this place and this time for such a time as this?”

Discovering and Defining Your Ministry

Ministry
(definition)

The process and action of releasing the Holy Spirit; (anointing / power of God) using gifts, talents and callings from God ;  to afford others growth, assistance and aid in all areas- spiritually, emotionally and physically

  • Your breakthrough and ministry are directly related

  • As you move in the Holy Spirit, your destiny and purpose is realized

We looked at  Foundations of Your Ministry in the Next move of God

Next in our series of Discovering and Defining Your Ministry

Keys to Being Used By God 2017+ (Pt.1)

  •  Believe the Lord wants to use you

Silence the enemy and self doubt, etc

Must not discount the power of God through you

Availability not ability

Christianity is not a “spectator sport”

Acts 2:17 “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people.

Zech 4:6 ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’

Phil 4:13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Matt 17:20 Nothing will be impossible for you if you  believe.”

“God chose you and placed you where you are to release His light.. So Shine… He’ll back you up”

  • Remove  ministry robbers

Unbelief, sin, unforgiveness fear , etc.

Heb. 12:1 So we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially the sin that just won’t let go.

Gal 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Ephesians 4:26 “don’t sin by letting anger gain control over you. Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry

Matthew 5:44 I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, pray for them

1 John 1:9 If we tell Him our sins, He is faithful and we can depend on Him to forgive us of our sins. He will make our lives clean and new again

”The enemy offers traps.. The Holy Spirit offers Victory”

  • Don’t allow circumstances to neutralize you

Daily trials, distractions, interruptions

Situation overwhelming- too challenging

Keep the main thing the Main thing

Rom 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

1 Cor 2:16 But we have the mind of Christ.

Phil 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Is 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. 

“Challenges are God’s doorways to BREAKTHROUGH”

  • Take your spiritual authority

Eph 6:17 sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Matt 10:1 He  and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.

Matt 21:21 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done

Matt 16:18-19 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.

“God has called you, placed you, anointed you and empowered you.”

  • Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit

Discern what’s going on

The obvious is often not the problem

Ps 46:10  “Be still , and know that I am God;

Rom 8:14 because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God

Col 1:9 we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.

Prov 3:5-6  Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.  Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

“Being led by the Spirit is a way of life and… the Way to Life”

  • Ask for directions

Check in with the Lord

“what would you have me to do in this situation ?”

Jn 10:27 My sheep hear my voice

Jn 16:13 I have given you the Holy Spirit. He will guide you

Rom. 8:14 We are led by the Spirit

Ps 37:23  The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way.

“The Spirit  leads WHEN man will follow”

  • Activate the Gifts of The Holy Spirit

Ask and you shall receive

Essential for the days ahead- It’s time you “step up”

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, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

1 Cor. 12: 6-11

The Word of Knowledge

The Word of Wisdom

The Gift of Prophecy

The Gift of Faith

The Gifts of Healings

The Working of Miracles

The Discerning of Spirits

Different Kinds of Tongues

The Interpretation of Tongues

“The Holy Spirit facilitates those He activates”

  • Declare the Word into the ministry encounter

Matt 6:10 your kingdom come, your will be done  on earth as it is in heaven.

Ps 107:20 He sent forth his word and healed them;

Ps 119:65 Do good to your servant according to your word , O Lord.

Mark 11:22-23 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.

Isa 55:11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

“The Holy Spirit ignites the Word when we proclaim it”

  • Declare God’s Specific Promises for your life and ministry

    Isa 55:11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

    “The Holy Spirit ignites the Word when we proclaim it”

  • LET the Holy Spirit use you

Jesus lives in you

Jesus is love

He died to “get out

1 John 4:7-19  love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. .., because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him… God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him..We love because he first loved us.. let us love one another, for love comes from God

A bell is not a bell until you ring it

A song is not a song until you sing it

Love in your heart is not meant there to stay

Love is not love till

“you give it away
