Steps to Breakthrough to Victory- Exposing The Enemy’s Traps.Pt. 3

Hebrews 2:4
1 Cor 15:57
2 Cor 10:3-5
Rev.12:11
Isa 59:19

And God confirms His Word by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

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

They defeated the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony;

 When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.

 

Our focus for 2017 :

Releasing the power of God through your life

 

Turn to someone and say :

It’s All About the Spiritual”

Very Important to remember for the days ahead
3 Categories of Spirits

Characteristics of a Victorious Christian in the next move of God

A victorious Christian will need to-

Deal with the enemy

1 Peter 5:8-9 Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Resist him, standing firm in the faith

James 4:7 Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

2 Cor 2:11

We are to  know very well what Satan’s plans are.

The Word of God

Luke 21:8

He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’

Matt 24:24-25

Your enemies  will try to fool even the people God has chosen, if that is possible.  Now I have warned you about this before it happens.

2 Cor 11:14-15

Even Satan changes himself to look like an angel of light (truth).

Remember

“We don’t fight FOR  victory
We fight FROM victory”

“The enemy is not trying to attack God’s throne… he’s trying to steal yours”

 

In our last series we looked at

The Powerful weapons of Personal Communion

Turn to someone and say- 

“Were not finished with the enemy

until …We finish him”

Isa 59:19

When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.

1 Peter 5:8-9

2 Cor 2:11

we are not ignorant of the enemy’s devices and schemes.

Luke 10:19

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

“If you don’t take authority…

You are giving authority”

–                                                                     Good News is..

When the dark becomes darker…

The Light becomes brighter

Jn 8:12     Matt 5:14

“I am the light of the world

“You are the light of the world”

We continue our focus in Defeating the Enemy-

Exposing the Tactics of the Enemy

Very Important

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)

 

Don’t Allow the Enemy

Allow

  • to give permission
  • to yield to
  • to accept

Important:

As a Christian the enemy cannot take from us unless we allow him

Exposing the Enemy’s Traps

  • Don’t allow the enemy to limit you

You must understand that you are not limited by

who you are or what you have done

What you think you can or cannot do

It’s through the  power of the Holy Spirit

1 Cor 15:57

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

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.”

  • Don’t allow the enemy to limit God

In the garden.. God was limiting man

His plan is to cause you to doubt God

Your situation is beyond his help

God does not promise/cover this

Zech 4:6

‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.

Jer 29:11

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.

1 Cor 2:9

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”

Don’t Allow the Enemy

Allow …

to give permission 

to yield to

to accept

Important:

As a Christian the enemy cannot take from us unless we allow him

  • Don’t allow the enemy to rob you

That’s his target -neutralize you- rob you of ministry

Be on guard

Robbery starts in the morning and will last the whole day

Wrong words/ poor night sleep/ rush hour/ bad news / meetings / Dr. appts

That’s why morning prayer/ personal communion for protection is so important

(Personal confessions? Armor of God)

Control of your day begins in the morning

Lam 3:23 His steadfast love is renewed every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Ps 118:24 This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

“What worries you controls you”

 

  • Don’t allow the enemy to use your past to control your future

Accuser of your past failure

Don’t allow your past to naturalize you present and future

2 Cor 5:17

anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

Important

Don’t allow yesterday to wash over into today

Don’t allow the sun to set on your anger

You are not determined by your past, you are prepared by your past

Don’t allow the enemy to define your present circumstances

  • The enemy will falsify things that are happening
  • Cause you to draw conclusions in the middle of things

You Must see things from God’s perspectives

Looking from heaven not from earth

2 Cor. 5:7 Our life is lived by faith. We do not live by what we see in front of us.

Eph 2:6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus

Your present circumstances can either define you or refine you

  • Don’t allow the enemy to cause  you to speak death

Life and death in the tongue

You can curse yourself and others –enemy’s

Prov 18: 21 The tongue has the power of life and death,

God is released with the (+)

Speak life

The Jewish greeting is Lahyme

 

  • Don’t allow the enemy to rob your faith

Remember the enemy is a thief

He comes to rob

Faith honors God

Doubt honors the enemy

Rom 12:3 God has given each man the measure of faith

Heb 10:38 For the ones pursuing God will live by faith.

Faith is responding to what God says your destiny is

 

  • Don’t allow the enemy to rob God’s promises

God  directs through His promises

The Bible is a promise

Our tomorrow and our eternity is a promise

We lay hold of them by faith- God’s plan

John 10:10  A thief comes to steal and kill and destroy, but I came to give life—life in all its fullness.

2 Cor. 1:20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.

Jere 29:11 “This the Lord speaking I know what I am planning for you, “I have good plans for you, not plans to harm you. Those plans are so you can  live in hope for your future.

  • Don’t allow the enemy to separate your intimacy with God

The enemy wants us to disconnect from God

  • Blame God
  • Question His leading
  • Doubt His love and commitment to us

When we are connected to Him, He controls our life- not the enemy

2.Cor 3:17 where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom (connection)

Psalm 16:11 You will show me the way of life. Being with You is total fulfilment in every area

A man who is intimate with God is not intimidated by man or the devil – Leonard Ravenhill
