GIANT KILLERS

DEUT. 3:1-8

LAST WEEK WE LOOKED AT PAUL’S USAGE OF THE GREEK WORD ANALUSIS, IN WHAT WOULD BECOME HIS FINAL WORDS/WRITING IN HIS LETTER TO TIMOTHY FOUND IN II TIMOTHY 4.

MY DEPARTURE/ANALUSIS IS AT HAND.

ANALUSIS/DEPRATURE USED NOT IN A SENSE TO SUGGEST “THE LOST OF”, BUT RATHER USED TO IMPLY “THE LETTING GO OF ONE THING FOR SOMETHING BETTER.”

NAVIGATIONAL

MILITARY

POLITICAL

AGRICULTURAL TERM . . . TRANSITIONING . . .

NOW, UNDERSTAND THAT AS GRAND AS THE IDEA OF MOVING IS, MOVING IS NOT FREE OF ITS HARDSHIPS.

CONSIDER WHEN YOU MOVE:

PACKING

TOSSING OUT OF OLD THINGS

MOVE ITSELF

DEALING WITH BROKEN/DAMAGED GOODS

UNPACKING

SETTLING INTO THAT WHICH IS NEW

NEW CHALLENGES

EXPECTED/UNEXPECTED

LIKEWISE, ONE’S SPIRITUAL MOVE PARALLELS A PHYSICAL MOVE, IN THAT THERE ARE SOME OBSTACLES/UNDERSTANDINGS THAT ONE MUST COME TO TERM WITH.

IN ORDER TO SPIRITUALLY MOVE FORWARD, ONE MUST KILL/SLAY THE GIANTS OF THEIR PAST, THEIR PRESENT, AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE WILL EVEN BE GIANTS TO SLAY IN YOUR FUTURE WHEN YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE GOING. BUT HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS: YOUR FUTURE GIANTS WILL BECOME YOUR PRESENT GIANTS THAT YOU’LL HAVE TO FACE IN ORDER TO MOVE (ANALUSIS) TO YOUR NEXT LEVEL.

SOMEBODY – I’M WORKING ON MY NEXT LEVEL.

WHATEVER LEVEL YOU ARE WORKING ON, YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE YOU CAN DEFEAT YOUR GIANTS.

. . .EVERYBODY ELSE

THINKING/SAYING

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

GIANTS OF OUR PAST (LAKERS)

GIANTS OF OUR PRESENT (HEAT)

GIANTS OF OUR FUTURE (SPURS)

MOSES – REMINDING THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL: THEY MUST NEVER FORGET THAT INDEED THEY WERE GIANT KILLERS.

AS II TIMOTHY WAS PAUL’S LAST WORDS TO TIMOTHY, DEUTERONOMY IS MOSES LAST WORDS TO THE CHILDRENOF ISRAEL.

IN DEUTERONOMY, MOSES RECAPS AND CHALLENGES ISRAEL TO REFLECT UPON ALL GOD – DONE.

WHILE YOU CANNOT GET STUCK IN YOUR PAST . . .

REFELCT ON YOUR PAST . . .

IN DEUTERONOMY, MOSES RECAPS THE LIFE OF ISRAEL IN THEIR SOJOURN FROM WILDERNESS TO PROMISE LAND. DEUTERONOMY WAS WRITTEN AT THE END OF THE FORTY YEARS OF WANDERING IN THE WILDERNESS TO THE NEW GENERATION OF JEWS UNDER THE AGE OF TWENTY WHO HAD COME OUT OF EGYPT, BORN IN THE WILDERNESS, OFFSPRING OF DISOBEDIENT PARENTS/LEADERS WHO FAILED TO BELIEVE GOD COULD GIVE THEM THE PROMISED LAND AND BECAUSE OF THEIR UNBELIEF, GOD HONORED HIS WORD, WHEN HE SAID ALL OF THAT GENERATION WOULD DIE OUT WITHOUT INHERITING THAT WHICH WAS PROMISED.

PAIN – INHERIT – DISBELIEF/DISOBEDIENCE . . .

RIGHT AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE PROMISE LAND, BUT SIN WOULD KEEP THEM OUT.

PONDER THE QUESTION: WHAT SIN IN YOUR LIFE, IS KEEPING GOD’S BLESSING OUT OF YOUR LIFE (2X)?

COULD IT BE THAT GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU MORE . . .

NOT BECAUSE YOUR NEIGHBOR – BLOCKING YOUR BLESSING

FAMILY

FRIENDS

ENEMIES . . .

YOU ARE BLOCKING YOUR BLESSING DUE TO YOUR OWN FAILURE TO SLAY SOME GIANTS.

WEAKNESSES – GIANTS

GIANTS THAT ARE WEAKNESSES MASQUERADING.

MOSES TELLS THIS NEW GENERATION OF WORSHIPPERS THAT THEIR FORE-PARENTS WERE RIGHT AT THE ENTRY POINT – DOORWAY - THRESHOLD OF PROMISE.

DAY AWAY – BLESSING. RIGHT AT THE DESERT ENTRY POINT – PROMISE LAND. SIN – KEPT THEM OUT.
