Sermon:
Is There Not a Cause?

I Samuel 17:29-32(Scripture Reading) [Explain]

Note VS 29- “is there not a cause?”

•Cause- principle, meaningful, worthy of support

What does Satan do to God’s people?

I Samuel 17:9-11 [Explain]
This is what Satan does to God’s people

Goliath- taunted, frustrated, humiliated, aggravated, and tormented.

Note- Goliath represents Satan

You need to rest spiritually

You are resting spiritually when you are:
1.praying
2.spending time with God
3.reading God’s Word

People mistake these three things as spiritual exercise.
David- willing & obedient
When you are obedient to what God and His word says you are practicing spiritual exercise.

Note VS 29- “is there not a cause”

People told David that he was just a little boy. (how could he make a difference, how could he fight,)
He was expecting God to be on his side.

Revelation 13:12-14 - evilness, secular power, religious compromise [Explain]
And he exerciseth all the (power) of the first beast before him, and causeth the
earth and them which dwell therein to (worship) the first beast, whose deadly wound was (healed).
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those (miracles) which he had (power) to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a (sword), and did live.

Note- this is Satan

Satan comes against the cause of God
We must tell him NO!

Here am I, send ME!

Isaiah 6:1-10 Scripture Reading) [Explain]

Note VS 8- “Here am I, Send Me”

Satan tries to make us be quiet
This is why God is looking for a people who will RISE UP! He is looking at the four corners of the earth and is raising those who are willing.

You must say I am Willing!
You must practice spiritual exercise.
Are you willing to rise up.

I ask you again is there not a cause?

•Cause- principle, meaningful, worthy of support

Our four & No More

We need to get out of our comfort zone
We have gotten use to praising God when we are in church.
God wants us to rise above that, he wants to take us to the next level.

If we do not rise up our generation will not make it.

We have gotten so comfortable that we do not see the cause.
And because of this, God is raising up sub primal leaders.

If we will set our jaw like a flit and will rise up, we will not be able to hold people in this room
We have to make up our mind, and rise up above that cloud of adversity.
It is time for a fight we cannot just sit around and let the Devil do what he wants.
We as Christians, we are stuck in this box and think-“What a day that will be when we get to heaven.”
We are so stuck on thinking- “When I get over there.”- well if we do not rise up no one will be over there, they will all be in hell.

You are not here just to be here- You are here for a cause.

You must witness to people no matter were you are.
If someone who did not know Jesus Christ was to walk through those doors, you must be ready to introduce them to him.

Matthew 11:12 [Explain]
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the (kingdom of heaven) suffereth (violence), and the (violent take it by force).

We have got to fight for it because the devil
