Summary: There is an imperative command in God’s word to: LET GOD, give Him permission, to ARISE and His enemies be scattered.
SPEAK TO GOD’S POSSIBILITIES:
LET GOD ARISE!
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
We are studying Divine Possibilities:
1. Climb into God’s Envelope; 2. Accept the Mantle; 3. Starving at a feast; 4. Let God!
5. When an unforgiving preacher preaches forgiveness; 6. Rising above the Minimum;
7. Rising above the scars; 8. Every miracle starts with a problem! 9. Walking in Divine blessings;
We are still treading in the realm of Divine Possibilities and we approach a very important
area for those that follow Jesus. Today we seldom reach above our potential and accept there is
more, there is the realm of Divine Possibilities! We must speak to this spiritual realm and reach
for God’s plan.
It is high time within the church that we speak blessing and release the Divine possibilities
that bring release. This is serious and we need to learn the power of blessing from the
Biblical point of view.
TEXT FOR THE SERIES:
Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him: IF THOU CANST BELIEVE, all things are possible to him that believes.
24. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said WITH TEARS, Lord, I believe; HELP THOU MINE UNBELIEF!
Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven,suffereth violence, AND THE VIOLENT TAKE IT BY FORCE.
A. Years ago I lived in the most south west corner of Virginia. I taught school just out of Pennington Gap, Va. Lee County was very beautiful.
One day someone had stolen some goods that a delivery truck had left in front of a store. The store owner was busy, and they would carry in the delivery later.
Someone had stolen some of the delivery before the owner could get the goods under lock and key.
Just so happened another member of the community was driving up and saw a familiar family helping themselves to the goods. They threw what they could on their pickup truck and went home.
The witness reported what they had seen to the store owner, and the local Sheriff’s department was called. A report was made.
The Deputy Sheriff drove up to the house of the offenders and there on the porch in clear view was the unopened boxes of stolen goods.
The Deputy asked to speak to the Father, and the Father came to the door.
The Deputy asked the Father where had he purchased these goods and he would like to see a receipt?
The Father said, IT IS AMAZING HOW THE LORD SUPPLIES, AN ARMY HELICOPTER WAS FLYING OVER THIS PLACE, AND ALL THESE WONDERFUL GOODS FELL OUT RIGHT IN THEIR FRONT YARD.
Needless to say, the Father’s story did not convince the Law Enforcement Officer.
B. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A SUGGESTION TO US HERE TODAY:
MANY TIMES WE ARE WAITING FOR GOD TO COME AND DROP PIE OUT OF THE SKY ON TO OUR WAITING TABLES, we have something to do to release our faith.
II. THE CHURCH IS MORE THAN A HOSPITAL, THE CHURCH IS A MIGHTY ARMY. IT IS HIGH TIME TO PULL DOWN THE STRONGHOLDS OF THE ENEMY.
Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven, suffereth violence, AND THE VIOLENT TAKE IT BY FORCE.
II CORINTHIANS 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
A. DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE HONEST LITTLE BOY?
A family went to church and the little boy really enjoyed the service so much.
But going home, the little boy listened as his Dad complained and complained.
The Dad told how slow and funeral like the singing was.
The Dad fell asleep several times during the service.
Then the Dad stated that the Preacher preached way too long, and beside that the Preacher sounded like he was mad and yelling.
The little boy unhooked his seat belt and leaned forward, then the little lad said:
"Dad, I don’t know what you expected for two cents?"
The little boy had seen the Dad drop two pennies in the offering plate when it went by him.
B. I think there is truth to this little statement:
BLESSED IS HE WHO EXPECTS NOTHING, FOR HE SHALL RECEIVE EXACTLY WHAT HE EXPECTED.
C. I think God wants us to arise and LET GOD ---
THOSE THAT SAY IT CAN’T BE DONE SHALL BE PASSED BY THOSE DOING IT!
III. I WOULD LIKE US TO SERIOUSLY PONDER WHAT IS THE HERITAGE OF THE LORD? THEN I WOULD LIKE YOU TO PONDER --- WHAT AM I LEAVING FOR OTHERS?
A. Do we STRETCH our potential? Do we reach for the realm of Divine Possibilities?
Are we so satisfied with where we are that we burp and lean back?
