HAVE YOU BEEN CRUSHED... ???

WE CAN OVERCOME THIS PROBLEM.

THIS PROBLEM IS NOTHING TO GOD...

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

DESTRUCTION: The act or process of damaging something so badly that it can no longer exists

or can not be repaired. To utterly destroy. Ruin.

Understand a lesson: Technically, by the definition DESTRUCTION CAN NOT HAVE AN S,

TO BE PLURUAL. One you are destroyed, destruction --- you can not be destroyed again.

TO KNOW OUR ENEMY'S HEART AND 3 FOLD PURPOSE (steal, kill, destroy), we can

clearly understand HIS GOAL IS TO ATTEMPT TO DESTRUCT US OVER AND OVER...

It this light GOD KNOWS HOW TO DELIVER...

TEXT:

Psalm 107:20 (KJV) He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their

destructions.

Psalm 107:20 (NLT) He sent out his word and healed them, snatching them from the door

of death.

GOD CAN TURN THE DESTRUCTIVE PATH OF THE WORM TO ACCOMPLISH HIS PLAN...

OUR ENEMY USES MANY TACTICS AND STRADEGIES TO ACCOMPLISH HIS

PLAN OF DESTRUCTION... LET US IDENTIFY THE TOOLS DESTRUCTION...

OFTEN IN THE KING JAMES WE FIND THE ENEMY WARPS NATURE TO BECOME

PART OF THE DEVIL'S DESTRUCTIVE PATH.

Joel 1:4 (KJV) That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which

the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left

hath the caterpiller eaten.

Joel 2:25 (KJV) And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm,

and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

LOCUST:

Locust represents devastation. It is in the grasshopper family.

The locust has straight wings and is known for destruction.

They can jump 200 times greater than their body length.

If this were a 6 foot human, he could jump 1200 feet.

WHILE A LOCUST CAN FLY, IT CAN NOT CONTROL THE DIRECTION OF THEIR FLIGHT,

THUS THEY USUALLY WILL RIDE WITH THE WIND...

NO WALLS, NO DITCHES, NO DESERTS, NO BODY OF WATER APPEARS TO HAVE THE

ABILITY TO STOP THE THE INVASION.

CATERPILLAR: known as that which devours, consumes and destroys.

Palmer worm: a caterpillar, it tends to wander, it is known as the PILGRIM WORM.

It travels in bands. Some call it the wingless locust. It is the larva state of the migratory

locust.

CANKERWORM: Hebrew: yelek. The cankerworm is known as the licking locust.

When in mass form it seems to lick up everything that is green.

GOD'S WORD REVEALS THE DESTRUCTIVE NATURE OF THE WORM TO PLAN

DESTROY GOD'S PEOPLE... AND GOD CAN TURN THE POWER OF THE WORM'S

DESTRUCTIVE POWER TO RELEASE A REVIVAL.

Nahum 3:16 (KJV) Thou hast multiplied thy merchants above the stars of heaven: the

cankerworm spoileth, and flieth away.

Nahum 3:16 (NLT) Your merchants have multiplied until they outnumber the stars. But like

a swarm of locusts, they strip the land and fly away.

GOD CAN TURN THE POWER OF THE WORM'S DESTRUCTIVE POWER TO RELEASE

A REVIVAL.

Joel 2:25 (KJV) And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm,

and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
