IT’S TIME TO TAKE IT BACK!

BEFORE WE START TODAY’S MESSAGE, LET’S TRY SOMETHING.

EVERYTIME I SAY, “1 - 2 - 3”, YOU SAY, “POS, DUH!” SOUND GOOD? ALL RIGHT, NOW, I’M SURE THAT IN PREVIOUS MESSAGES YOU HAVE HARD ABOUT FAITH. FAITH CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS, BUT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS USELESS. ONCE YOU CONFESS YOUR VICTORY, YOU’RE SAYING IT’S DONE. REMEMBER THAT FAITH IS SEEING SOMETHING DONE IN THE SPIRITUAL ROUND, AND NOT SEEING IT, BUT BELIEVING IT. AFTER YOU MOVE YOUR MOUNTAINS, YOU HAVE GOT TO FIND A WAY TO GET BACK WHAT YOU LOST BEFORE YOUR MOUNTAINS WERE MOVED. ARE YOU WITH ME? IN SOME CASES, IT COULD BE YOUR FAMILY, YOUR MONEY, JOY, PEACE, FRIENDS, BUT THE ONE THAT HAPPENS TO MOST CHRISTIANS IS THE FIRST LOVE OF THEIR SALVATION. “WELL, HOW CAN I GET ALL THAT BACK?” ASKED ONE OF THOSE WEIRD OLD LADIES. YOU KNOW, THOSE THAT ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO MAKE IT DIFFICULT ON YOU WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO PROVE A POINT? THEN SHE SAID, “GOD KNOWS I KEEP ON TRYING. I’VE TRIED AND TRIED, BUT I DO NOT SEEM TO BE ABLE

TO BE HAPPY.” THEN SHE SAID, “I KNEW IT ALL ALONG THAT

SOMETHING LIKE THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO ME!” POS, YA

LO CONFESO! SHE HAD DOUBT. CON GANAS DE DARLE CON LA

BIBLE PARA QUE LE SANE LA HEAD! MAYBE SHE WOULD

UNDERSTAND WHAT LUKE CHAPTER 10 VERSE 19 SAYS. IN FACT, TURN WITH ME TO THAT SCRIPTURE. IT STATES: “BEHOLD, I GIVE YOU POWER TO TREAD ON SERPENTS AND SCORPIONS, AND OVER ALL THE POWER OF THE ENEMY: AND NOTHING SHALL BY ANY MEANS HURT YOU!” NOW, EVERYONE REPEAT AFTER ME: “LORD, JESUS, SPEAK TO MY HEART, AND CHANGE MY LIFE. IN YOUR PRECIOUS NAME, AMEN.” EVIDENTLY GOD WILL NOT TAKE AWAY ANYTHING OF BLESSING FROM YOU UNLESS THE FACT THAT HE TAKES IT AWAY FROM YOU WILL BE OF BLESSING LATER ON IN YOUR WALK. NOW, IF GOD DOESN’T DO IT, THEN, WHO DOES IT? 1 - 2 - 3! POS, DUH! HELLO, MC FLY, THE DEVIL! DO

YOU REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE GLAD TO BE IN THE HOUSE OF

THE LORD? WHEN YOU WOULDN’T EVEN BRING A WATCH TO

CHURCH BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T CARE WHAT TIME IT WAS? WHEN

YOU WERE HAVING AN AWESOME MARRIAGE? DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE DEBT FREE? WHEN YOUR SON AND DAUGHTER WOULD SPEND HOURS ON THEIR FACE, SEEKING THE LORD AT THIS ALTAR? WHEN YOU WOULD LIVE WITHOUT ARTHRITIS, CANCER, DIABETES, BRONCHITIS, FLOJERITIS, AND A PAIN HERE AND A PAIN THERE? WHEN THEY WOULD ASK YOU TO

GIVE FOR A NEED OF THE CHURCH AND YOU WOULD ASK HOW

MUCH AND NOT FOR WHAT? WHEN THEY WOULD ENCOURAGE

THE CONGREGATION TO JUMP AND YOU WOULD JUMP AND YOU

WOULD ASK IN A SHOUT, “HOW HIGH?!?” WHEN THEY WOULD ASK YOU TO LEAD THE SERVICE AND YOU WOULD RESPOND, “I’LL DO IT THIS WEEK AND THE NEXT IF YOU LET ME!” WHEN YOU WOULD COME TO CHURCH EARLY WITH A SPIRIT OF EXPECTANCY AND YOU WOULD COME, REJOICE AT THE ALTAR AND SOAK IN HIS PRESENCE AND WITH MUCH JOY IN YOUR HEART YOU WOULD JUST SEEK MORE AND MORE OF HIM, JUST LONGING TO SEE HIS FACE AND WITH A HUNGRY HEART YOU WOULD SHOUT, “WHAT - A - SIZE IT, LORD!” WHAT HAPPENED? YOU LOST IT! THE WORD SAYS: “HE HAS GIVEN US AUTHORITY TO STEP OVER SCORPIONS AND SERPENTS.” IF WE HAVE THAT AUTHORITY GIVEN TO US BY THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE, THEN, WE HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO STOMP OVER THE SNAKE WHO TOOK ALL THAT WAS OURS AWAY! WAS IT GOD? NO, IT WAS WHO? 1 - 2
