FEBRUARY, 2018 NATIONAL HOLY GHOST SERVICE: STONGER THAN YOUR ENEMIES – PART 2
Bible Passage: Lk. 11:21-22
Ministering: Pastor E.A. Adeboye
Luk 18:22 — Luk 18:23 (CWSB)
22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
23 And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.
Father, answer my prayers by fire tonight.
1. March, 2018 Special HGS – March 1-3, 2018. Theme: STRONGER THAN YOUR ENEMIES – PART 3. Subtitle: GIVE ME THIS MOUNTAIN.
2. Special Divine Encounter – Monday to Friday. It can be watched
3. Special Prayer for Nigeria – February 13, 2018 at the Old Arena. 10am to 1pm. It will be covered on Dove Television.
We are going to solve some problems simultaneously:
There are certain problems beyond man.
There is no problem beyond God – Lk. 18:27
Man can hide from man.
No man can hide from God- Ps. 139:7-12.
Security agents can be compromised.
God cannot be compromised. His holiness is not negotiable- Isa. 6:1-9.
Man can sponsor evil-Esther 3:8-9.
God cannot sponsor evil – Job 8:20.
There is ONLY ONE ANSWER:
THE PRAYER WARRIOR IS NORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE ACTIVIST.
In another way (THE CORONARY):
THE ENEMIES OF GOD AND THE CHILDREN IF GOD MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE: BOTH OF THEM UNDERATE THE POWER OF PRAYER.
Some of us have come to understand 2Corin.10:4-5.
1. Father, wherever those who are shedding blood are hiding, expose them and deal with them.
2. Father, all those who are condoning evil- all those who are conniving with them- expose them and deal with them.
3. Father, all those who are sponsoring evil and bloodshed- expose them and destroy with them.
4. Father, anyone focusing on me, my family, Your Church, for evil intentions, destroy them.
It is not possible for a sinner to be stronger than his enemies because the hands of a sinner are weak.
Prov.13:15- the sinner is programmed to fail by God Himself.
Prov.11:21- A sinner cannot go unpunished.
Deut.28:1,7- When enemies come against you one way, they will flee seven ways if you are a child of God. There is no way the enemies can win.
However, Deut.28:1, the sinner runs when nobody is pursuing him.
Jn.5:13-14- If God graciously gives a sinner victory, something terrible can still happen to him if he continues in sin.
Rm.6:23- the wages of sin is death.
If the sinner will surrender to Jesus, God will give him life.
Deut.30:19-20- A choice to choose life.
Bible Passage: Mk.11:22-23
A mountain symbolizes a huge enemy. A hindering force. One that says that
What Do We Do If we fund such a mountain in our lives?
1. Don’t ignore the mountain. You have to confront in order to conquer.
What you tolerate stays. What you confront moves.
As long as you tolerate the mountain, it will stay -2Kgs.4:1-7.
Matt.8:1-4- A leper tgat came to Jesus.
Mk.10:46-52 – For 40 years Bartimaeus had been begging. He had surrendered to darkness until one day when he cried and was freed.
Joshua 5:13-6:5- Joshua was faced with the wall of Jericho and he didn’t ignore it. While trying to confront the wall that help came through an angel. Let us together confront the mountain today.
Father, I need help. Help me right now.
2. Talk to the mountain.
Engage the mountain in a conversation.
What kind of conversation?
There are two of us now and one of us has yo move- and that it is the mountain that will move.
Ps.16:8- I have set the Lord always before me, He us at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
Ps.62:6- The Lord is My Rock and my salvation: he is myMy defends. I shall not be moved.
Heb.13:8- Jesus Christ
Acts 17:28- In Him I live, I move and have my being. You can’t move me unless you mountain can change Jesus.
He is also living in me – Gal.2:20.
Father, in the Mighty Name of Jesus, I say unto the mountain “MOVE!
3. You have to explain to the mountain why it has to move. The principal reason why it has to move is because it is blocking your view.
* Prov.29:18- Where there is no vision, the people perish.
*Ps.100:2- I am to serve God with GLADNESS.
Acts 3- the Name man by the Beautiful Gate.
Job 17:7- Sorrow dims eyes. You can’t see clearly.
Father, in the Mighty Name of Jesus, everything that is not allowing me to serve You with GLADNESS must go tonight.
4. You have to tell the mountain ” I AM NOT ADVISING YOU.
There are different ways of talking In the Scriptures:
*Pleading – Ezk.33:11- God is not happy with the death of a sinner.
*A command -Matt.28:18-20
*Decree: a stronger way of speaking – Gen.1:1-3.
Job 22:21-28- You will understand why Daddy G.O. is so crazy about holiness.
*Christian life becomes enjoyable if when you decree a thing and it comes to pass.
Father, tonight, I decree, in the Name of Jesus, every mountain in my life, move now.
5. You should TELL THE MOUNTAIN WHERE IT SHOULD GO. “BE THOU CAST INTO THE SEA.
The Lord is saying that we must FINISH THE JOB TONIGHT.
Joshua 11:22- Goliath came from the leftover.
When you kill Goliath to tonight, you must cut the head -1Sam. 17:49-51.
Father, every mountain leaving me today, must go to the sea and perish there. Every one of them.
6. You must be specific.
*1Pet.2:24- If healing
If demons are troubling you – It is WRITTEN Rev.12:11
Phil.2: 10 – Mountain, at the Name of Jesus, bow.
If poverty – Jesus became poor that I might become rich -2Corin.8:9.
If persistent failure- Tell failure I rebuke by the presence of Jesus in my boat – Lk.5:1-11
If stagnation- I rebuke by the resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ.
In the Mighty Bame of Jesus, mention your own mountain.
7. Remember to return all the glory to God.
Life is war. Always thank God because you will need Him again. Judges 15:14-19- Samson bound, the enemies, the Jaw bone of an ass. He began to boast. Never forget to give glory to God. Some minutes will be given to us to praise God.
