Summary: In this day and time it’s easy for the believer to want to just give up and throw in the towel. But the Word of God encourages us to hang in there because there will be a reward for those who endure until the end.




For the last two months the Lord has allowed powerful and anointed messages to forth into this body of believers that I believe has help propel and position us into this specific area that we are operating in… Whether it’s been in Tuesday Night Bible Class or our Sunday Morning worship experience, I believe that God has ordained and orchestrated for a time such as this, the level and intensity of anointing that He is calling us to operate in… And because of this unprecedented level that he has called us to, I believe likewise that the enemy has literally pulled the gloves and is in fact, playing dirty… He’s hitting below the belt… Sucker punching, kicking and biting, using illegal choke holds… He’s doing everything he can to tear us down and destroy us… (John 10:10)

Furthermore, I believe that as a result of this tumultuous and turbulent attack, there are many in the body of Christ who are becoming of the mindset to just throw in the towel and just give up… I believe that there might be some of you in here today that are just tired of going round and round with the enemy… Tired… Tired of being tired, tired of coming out on what seems like ‘the short end…’

Tired of always feeling like you don’t have enough to make it, that you’re defeated… That you’ll never get ahead… That you’ll never be victorious… And perhaps you’ve come to that point in life where you’re just ready to give it up…! You’re ready to just throw in the towel… You just want to grab your bible and go home…

For those of you who feel like that, you need to know that God has a Word you for today… It may not make you feel good, but it’s the Word that’s for you… It may not feel good to you, but it’s good for you… For those of you ready to throw in the towel and give up, the Lord would have me to tell you today simply this: QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION…!

I know you’re tired…

You’re ready to give up…

You’re discouraged…

It doesn’t seem like God hears you…

You can’t get a prayer through…

You can’t get a breakthrough…

But Holy Spirit says: QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION…!

(Text…) And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. (NKJV)… And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint. (Amp)… So don’t get tired of doing what is good. Don’t get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. (NLT)

I need to tell you today, that there are some dangers in quitting…


(v 19-21 NLT) “…we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. 20This is the new, life-giving way that Christ has opened up for us through the sacred curtain, by means of his death for us. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s people…”

Because of Christ’s death, we have been placed in position whereby we can come boldly into the presence of God… We have been placed into position to receive all that He has for us… How dare we forfeit that gift and that right given to us…?

(v 22-25) “…let us go right into the presence of God, with true hearts fully trusting him. For our evil consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water… Without wavering, let us hold tightly to the hope we say we have (your confession), for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Think of ways to encourage one another to outbursts of love and good deeds. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near…”

(v 26-39) “… if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received a full knowledge of the truth, there is no other sacrifice that will cover these sins. There will be nothing to look forward to but the terrible expectation of God’s judgment and the raging fire that will consume his enemies. Anyone who refused to obey the law of Moses was put to death without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Think how much more terrible the punishment will be for those who have trampled on the Son of God and have treated the blood of the covenant as if it were common and unholy. Such people have insulted and enraged the Holy Spirit who brings God’s mercy to his people… (30) For we know the one who said, "I will take vengeance. I will repay those who deserve it." He also said, "The Lord will judge his own people." It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God…”

What a good Word! My husband and I are Pastors. And this message came at the right time for us. Just telling you now, I will be using some of what you've said in my sermon. Now that I have been encouraged to hold on. I will encourage others. Because quitting is NOT and option.
