Summary: The inspiration for this sermon came from a fellow contributor, Dr Robert E. Houston from California message, Stand <not available on this site> and also some of the information used in the development also came from that sermon.
I GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO STAND!
King James Version – 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Amplified Bible – 11Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. 12For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere. 13Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].
Kind Father in the name of Jesus, we just want to thank you. We thank you for you alone are worthy. We thank you because you deserve the honor and you deserve the glory. And as we enter into this preaching moment we want you to have your way in the name of Jesus. Cleanse me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. Father we understand that Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by your inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to your will in thought, purpose, and action), So that I, the man of God for this moment, may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work. So God, Spirit of the Living God, breathe fresh on us. Roll up your sleeve now and go to work for us. Go place we cannot go. Touch hearts we cannot touch. Mend hearts we cannot mend. Send now the anointing that makes preaching easy, In the name of Jesus. Father let your anointing sat in this house. Let fall in clarity and power. Send the kind of unction that causes massive deliverance. Rebuke the devil. Don’t beg him and don’t plead with him, but rebuke him today in the name of Jesus, the Christ. Send an answer to a question that somebody’s been asking on the altar. Solve a dilemma today. Send a clear word of direction. Let some sinner be saved. Let some backslider be reclaimed. Touch everywhere. Turn logos into rhema. Throw your weight around. Show off in here. I thank you for what you are going to do. Have your way sweet Jesus. In Jesus name, Amen.
