OUTLINE

THIS MISSION:

Not for the faint of heart

Preparing for HGHF

March 5, 2006 – Pastor Tom Bartlett

When Courage And Faith Collide

Ask:

1. Lord is this what you really want?

• Know that God will always confirms His Word.

Joshua 5:13-15 (NLT) “When Joshua was near the town of Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a sword in hand… I am the commander of the Lord’s army… Joshua did as he was told.”

• Understand that in God’s eyes it’s already done.

Joshua 6:2 (NLT) “the LORD said to Joshua, "I have given you Jericho…”

• Be sure that advanced obedience is required.

Joshua 1:16 (NLT) “… we will do whatever you command us, and we will go wherever you send us.”

When God Confirms His Word

Ask:

2. How should I do it?

Joshua 1:7 (NIV) “…Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.”

• Do it exactly as God has said even if it doesn’t make sense to you.

Joshua 6:2-5 (NLT) “…march around the city once a day for six days… On the seventh day you are to march around the city seven times, ..Then the walls of the city will collapse,..."

Joshua 6:17 (NLT) “The city and everything in it must be completely destroyed.”

Joshua 6:27 (NLT) “So the LORD was with Joshua…”

• Be concerned about principals and not perceptions

Hebrews 11:30 (NLT) “It was by faith that the people of f Israel marched around Jericho seven days, and the walls came crashing down.”

• Stay faithful in victory

Joshua 7:1 (NLT) “But Israel was unfaithful concerning the things set apart for the LORD. A man named Achan had stolen some of these things, so the LORD was very angry with the Israelites…”

Concerning Heaven’s Gates & Hell’s Flame (EVANGALISTIC CAMPAIGN)

Is this what God wants? YES

(2 Peter 3:9, Matthew 28:18-20. Mark 16:15)

How should we do it?

1. Begin preparing for the victory that God will bring

2. By faith

3. Giving all the glory to God

THIS MISSION:

Not for the faint of heart

Preparing for HGHF

March 5, 2006 – Pastor Tom Bartlett

Have you ever read the disclaimer at the front of the line for a fast ride at an amusement park? Sometimes it will say something like, “Those with high blood pressure, vertigo, dizziness, pregnant or other serious conditions should not ride this ride.”

Occasionally you will find a ride with a simple statement such as – “Not for the faint of heart” Or a similar phrase.

I don’t know about you but when I was younger that made the ride seem ever better for some reason but now that I’m older, much older… I’m thinking twice about what those signs say before getting on them.

Living by faith is kind of like that. After a while being a Christian I’ve experienced the rush of really stepping out and doing something for God. But I have to admit as much as I enjoy that, when the next big thing comes I’m a little apprehensive it seems till I just jump off and go.

Take for instance our HGHF’s presentation. I know God is in it and I know what He did last year, I just had to work up my courage a little more for some reason.
