DUET.6:10-13, 18-19, 23

“ HE BROUGHT US OUT FROM THERE IN ORDER TO BRING US IN ”

GOD NEVER DELIVERS YOU FROM W/O HAVING SOMETHING TO DELIVER YOU TO.

OUT IN

WORLD KINGDOM LIVING

FLESH SPIRIT

COMPROMISE COMMITMENT

UNBELIEF FAITH

DEATH ABUNDANT LIFE

A LAND WHERE YOU CAN EAT THE FRUITS OF THE KINGDOM.....

LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, AND SELF-CONTROL.

FOR EVERY PROMISED LAND EXPERIENCED, THERE SEEMS TO BE A CROSSING OVER TEST. “LOSERS LOOK AT WHAT THEY’RE GOING THROUGH,WINNERS LOOK AT WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO.”

* BEFORE ABRAHAM BECAME FATHER/NATIONS =>GIVE UP SON

(UNUSUAL SACRIFICE)

* BEFORE DAVID TO BE KING => A GOLIATH

(UNUSUAL COURAGE)

* BEFORE MOSES ENTERED PROM. LAND => RED SEA

(UNUSUAL FAITH)

* BEFORE JESUS EARTHLY MINISTRY => WILDERNESS EXPERIENCE

(UNUSUAL COMMITMENT) RATHER DIE THAN COMPROMISE OR QUIT.

OBTAINING THE VICTORY

1CHRON.14:11 “ SO THEY CAME UP TO BAAL-PERAZIM AND DAVID DEFEATED THE PHILISTINES THERE; AND DAVID SAID, “GOD HAS BROKEN THROUGH MY ENEMIES BY MY HAND, LIKE THE BREAKTHROUGH OF WATERS”

BAAL-PERIZIM = “ GOD IS THE MASTER OF THE BREAKTHROUGH”

EXAMPLE:

WHEN I WAS PERFORMING WITH THE “POWER TEAM” (A GROUP OF WORLD CLASS ATHLETES), IT WAS MY NIGHT TO ATTEMPT TO RUN THROUGH FIVE, TWELVE FOOT LONG, TWO-BY-FOURS, ACROSS MY 62 INCH CHEST.

WE HAPPENED TO BE IN AN ARENA IN TULSA HOLDING ABOUT 15,000 SPECTATORS. TWO MAMMOTH MEN, WEIGHING IN OVER 300 POUNDS EACH WOULD LINE UP ACROSS THE STAGE. HOISTING THE FIVE BOARDS CHEST HIGH, THESE MEN WOULD SPRINT, AT FULL SPEED TOWARD ME. I WAS TO IMPACT THE BOARDS, SHATTERING THEM IN TWO LIKE A BUZZ SAW. AT LEAST THAT WAS THE PLAN!

THE MOMENT WAS AT HAND. THE MUSIC BLASTED MY ADRENALINE SKY HIGH. I TOOK OFF LIKE A ROCKET ACROSS THE STAGE ON A DIRECT COLLISION COARSE WITH THE FIVE TWO-BY-FOURS. WHAM! I HIT THOSE BOARDS WITH ALL THAT WAS IN ME BUT THEY REFUSED TO BRAKE. IMAGINE THE “OOOH’S” THAT FLARED UP THROUGH THE CROWD AS THEY WITNESSED ME,

(A 315 POUND MAN) LAUNCHED LIKE A SLING SHOT FIFTEEN FEET THROUGH THE AIR! I LOOKED LIKE A REJECTED CRASH CAR DUMMY.

BUT, AS I PICKED MYSELF UP OFF THE GROUND AND COLLECTED WHAT WAS LEFT OF MY THOUGHTS, A BIBLE VERSE CAME TO ME. I GRABBED THE MICROPHONE AND ADDRESSED THE CROWD, “HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN KNOCKED DOWN IN YOUR FAITH, OR YOUR GOALS, OR YOUR DREAMS? MICAH 7:8 SAYS, ‘WHEN I FALL, I SHALL ARISE.’ CHAMPIONS ARE NOT THOSE WHO NEVER GET KNOCKED DOWN. THEY ARE THOSE WHO NEVER GIVE UP!”

A GREAT ROAR WENT UP THROUGH THE CROWD AND I DECLARED,

“LET’S GET IT ON ONE MORE TIME.”

I ASKED GOD TO GIVE ME THE COURAGE AND STRENGTH TO MAKE A VICTORIOUS SECOND ATTEMPT AND WITH HIS HELP, SPLINTERED THE BOARDS. THE PLACE WEND CRAZY! OVER TWO THOUSAND WHO HAD BACKSLID OR SUFFERED SETBACKS OF SOME KIND, REDEDICATED THEIR LIVES TO JESUS THAT NIGHT.

SOME OF YOU MAY NEED A CROSS OVER (BRAKE THROUGH) EXPERIENCE TODAY !

THERE IS A PROMISED LAND FOR YOUR MARRIAGE, FAMILY, FINANCES, CAREER, YOUR HEALTH, THIS CHURCH.

“THE DEVIL, MANY TIMES WILL NOT RESIST YOUR SALVATION EXPERIENCE NEARLY AS MUCH AS HE WILL RESIST YOU IN YOUR DESTINY.”
