Ephesians 6:10–20 KJV 1900
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
Four KEYS that I want to give you tonight.
For something to be displaced is to replace the “thing” with something else.
We live in the domain of satan because of sin.
Spiritual warfare is nothing more than taking territory back for God.
Any time one force displaces another there is pockets of resistance.
What took place last weekend was a long prayed for breakthrough in the spirit…
We broke through the enemies lines, captured his flag, took his headquarters, routed his soldiers...
As I said last night:
this feels like a reprieve for many ppl
feels restful
Smooth sailing
FIRST KEY: BUT NOW IS THE TIME TO PUSH LIKE NEVER BEFORE!
How?
No breaks!
Fast
Pray
Give
Do right
Control your thoughts
SECOND KEY: NEW AUTHORITY
Gifts of the Spirit in operation.
Gifts of the Spirit do NOT impress God!
Charismatic movement shined light on the Gifts and Moving of the Spirit
Positive: opened the door for use and exposure
Negative: people using the Gifts without understanding or developing relationship or spiritual discipline.
If you are seeing that God has gifted you in one of the 9 primary gifting;
TO KNOW
Gift of Wisdom
Gift of Knowledge
Gift of Discernment
TO SPEAK
Gift of Prophecy
Gift of Tongues
Gift of Interpretation of Tongues
TO DO
Gift of Faith
Gift of Miracles
Gift of Healing
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO PRAY FOR IS THE GIFT OF WISDOM!
Bro. Billy Cole: “Spiritual Preparation for the Ministry”
5 min praying for miracles, the rest of the time praying that his spirit be right!
THIRD KEY: DEVELOPING SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE
** hardest thing of all to do!
It is the backbone of all we do!
Prayer
Fasting
Giving
Serving
These will produce a renewed mind!
FOURTH KEY: YOU!
Tuesday and Wednesday night attenders...
Those who will mow the lawn...
Those who clean the bathrooms and vacuum the floors...
Those who will teach a Bible Study...
Those will will give of themselves will receive of me!
If you are here, it’s for a reason!
Conclusion:
Here is our focus...
Two ways to grow a church.
Hope that someone walks in the doors and then we are able to convince them that we are the best church for them and their families.
Those that go out and intentionally bring people in.
