Your Spiritual Victory in 2018- Your Ministry- Being Used By God- Here’s How (message 2-18-18)
‘In the final unfolding days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. In those days I will pour out my Spirit on those who are serving me,.. And I will cause wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, 31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood .. And everyone who receives their message will be saved.’
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.”
When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
“I have begun to give… begin to receive.”
We are in Prophetic times
1 Chron 12:33
All the sons of Issachar understood the signs of the times and knew what to do
You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.
Peter quoted Joel
‘In the final unfolding days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. In those days I will pour out my Spirit on those who are serving me,.. And I will cause wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood

Not since 1866
The prophets.. Rick Joyner, Cindy Jacob, Bill Johnson, Bobby Conner…
“2018- a year of activating the Church and demonstrating the power of God”
Cindy Jacobs prophetic word..
- I the Lord am going to even open the doors for my people to pray and supernaturally begin to share about me
- don’t keep your gift to yourself,
- if you will be bold and if you will believe, I am going to use you in extraordinary ways.
- “I am going to give you such satisfaction from being used of me.
- this is a time of great advance and acceleration.
- Satan wants to take your confidence
- “Rise up and believe my word. For you will see, if you will do that, you’re going to win the battles, and the things that are causing you challenges, and the things that are causing you problems, I’m going to show you how to navigate them, and I’m going to give you victory“,
In the last days I will pour out my spirit
In 2018 Our focus is :
Activating the power of God through your life
(Being Doers of the WORD)
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
Christian are to be sensitive to what God is doing which goes beyond the political and into the spiritual.
“When we do not take authority
we give authority”
How does this happen? It’s trough the
Understanding is a Key.. Bible talk; Justification sanctification, atonement
If you don’t understand the Anointing and the way it functions by the Holy Spirit
You will fall prey to the manipulations of the enemy (fear, inadequacy, intimidation, deactivation, etc)
It’s why most Christians never see the power of God “to and through” their lives.
Isa 10:27 It is the anointing that breaks the yoke.
(Activates God power in us and through us)
Essential for 2018
enables us to move beyond our abilities so we can step into the power of the Holy Spirit
The Anointing is released in the BAPTISM WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
John answered them all, “I baptize you with water (salvation). But one more powerful than I will come, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
John’s Baptism – Baptized into Jesus (Salvation)
Jesus’ Baptism- Baptism in the Holy Spirit
With fire- anointing
John’s baptism does not mention “anointing”
We looked at
- The purpose of the Anointing
- Increases of Faith
- Increases Worship
- Increases sensitivity to the Holy Spirit
- Increases the release of Power (authority)
- Removes Fear
- Defeats the enemy
- Confidence in our relationship with the Lord
- Releases a Boldness in presenting the “Good News
- Equips us for MINISTRY
- Releases the Gifts of the Holy Spirit
- Releases a Confidence For the Future
Do you want to be…
Can you be…
Used By God
Many people say “I know that I am to be a witness of Christ on earth.
I know that the anointing of God has been given to me 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
I want to be a “Doer of the Word”
but… What does this mean? How do I do it?
