THEN THERE IS DIVINE DELIVERANCE...

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

TEXT:

2 Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to

reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.

INTRODUCTION...

WHY WAIT TO WE ARE BEAT UP TO REACH FOR THE SPINACH?

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD POPEYE SAY:

ME'S HAD ALL ME'S CAN STAND, ME'S CAN NOT STAND NO MORE...

I ALWAYS THOUGHT POPEYE SHOULD EAT A LITTLE SPINACH FOR BREAKFAST, LUNCH,

SUPPER, AND A MIDNIGHT SNACK...

WISDOM SAYS: DON'T WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE BEAT UP TO EAT YOUR SPINACH...

DO YOU SWEAR OR AFFIRM TO TELL THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE

TRUTH SO HELP YOU GOD... LET US CALL SOME PEOPLE TO THE WITNESS STAND...

THAT CAN TELL FIRST HAND ABOUT DIVINE DELIVERANCE?

DELIVERANCE CAN TAKE MANY FORMS... AND STILL BE DIVINE DELIVERANCE...

A. LET US CALL FOR THE FIRST WITNESS ABOUT DIVINE DELIVERANCE A MR. JEHOSAHAPHAT.

1. JEHOSAHAPHAT, DO YOU SWEAR OR AFFIRM TO TELL THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND

NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH SO HELP YOU GOD... LET US CALL JEHOSAHAPHAT TO THE WITNESS

STAND...

2. JEHOSAHAPHAT, CAN YOU TELL US WHO YOU ARE...?

I am JEHOSAHAPHAT, the King of JUDAH, I have been blessed with riches and honor in abundance.

2 Chron. 18:1.

I have lived in a pretty wicked day. Have you ever heard of AHAB AND JEZEBELL?

3. WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND YOU?

WE HAVE A BIG, BAD ENEMY...

Have you ever heard about the MOABITES?

LOT OLDEST SON AND HIS GRANDSON WAS NAMED MOAB.

The Moabites live east of the Jordan and the Dead Sea

They worship Baal-peor.

Remember the Moabites would not LET GOD'S PEOPLE WALK THROUGH THEIR TERRITORY

and they had to walk around...

Remember SANBALLOT he was a MOABITE...

4. SO, WHAT ARE YOU SAYING JEHOSAHAPHAT?

Well the Moabites have teamed up with the AMMONITES TO DESTROY US...

We are out numbered over 10 to 1... WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?

5. Well, JEHOSAHAPHAT, what did you do?

The only thing I knew to do...

2 Chron. 20:3 And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout

all Judah.

6. After I started seeking the Lord, I called the people of JUDAH TO PRAY...

2 Chron. 20:4 And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the Lord: even out of all the cities of

Judah they came to seek the Lord.

7. THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD CAME DOWN AND TOLD US...

2 Chron. 20:15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat,

Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is

not yours, but God's.

8. THE LORD WILL "BE WITH US"... DO YOU KNOW HOW COMFORTING IT IS FOR THE LORD TO BE

"WITH US?"

2 Chron. 20:17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of

the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them:

for the Lord will be with you.

9. THE LORD PROMISED US THOUGH THE ENEMY IS GREAT, HE IS GREATER...

THE LORD SAID: WE DO NOT EVEN HAVE TO FIGHT...
