WHAT ARE MOODS?
HOW DO WE GET INTO THIS MOOD?
CAN WE CHANGE OUR MOODS...

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Ever wonder why they were called the SONS OF THUNDER?
Mark 3:17 And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed
them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:
WHAT WE GAIN BY INTERCESSION, WE WILL KEEP BY INTERCESSION...
A great preacher (Carlson) spoke these words a few years ago.
I have them in my note book...
God is calling Spirit-filled people to a FRESHER and DEEPER ministry unto Him in
worship and unto all the world in witness.
This is our day of visitation by the Holy Spirit. He promised in the last days to pour out His
Spirit on all flesh. There will be a world wide revival.
The family and the home are integral parts of the body of Christ, and SATAN IS ATTACKING
THE HOME AS A MEANS OF WEAKENING THE EFFECTIVE WITNESS OF THE CHURCH. He shall
not prevail. Taking the armor of the Lord and praying in the Holy Spirit, the church shall be
Every member of our fellowship---officers, ministers, lay leaders --- all are urged to join the
Executive Presbyters in DAILY INTERCESSORY PRAYER FOR OUR FAMILIES and our prayer
partners. Together, as witnesses of the body of Christ, we will find direction to reach everyone
in our world with the message of the gospel.
Let every home be an altar of DAILY INTERCESSORY PRAYER. LET THE FAMILY ALTAR
BE THE SOURCE OF ENERGY FOR REACHING THE WORLD.
Trials and victories are part of Christian life. We know we will have trials. But we are assured
of victories as we pray. Let us continue to pray daily for God's direction and help for our churches
and families. He has promised us the victory.

II. MAY I TAKE A LIBERTY AND SUGGEST THAT MOODS MAY COME FROM SPIRITUAL SOURCES?
SOME PEOPLE GET MOODY WHEN THEY DO NOT GET THEIR WAY...
AHAB WAS A MOODY KING...
LET'S CALL THIS MOOD BY THE REAL NAME: MANIPULATION... CONTROLING SPIRIT
1 Kings 21:4 And Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased because of the word which
Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of
my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread.
 But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said unto him, Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou
eatest no bread?
A. AHAB WAS A SPOILED ROTTEN CHILD AND KING...
He demanded what he wanted...AHAB'S DESIRES AND COVETING TOOK A SPIRITUAL
PRIORITY ... Ahab had a heart problem...
B. SULLEN, IMMATURITY, ANGER DRIVEN...
C. POUT... WHAT DOES POUTING LOOK LIKE?
D. What desires do you have that control you?
WHEN DESIRES CONTROL YOU --- YOU ARE OUT OF CONTROL!
Choices have consequences...
E. PUT TWO MOODY PEOPLE TOGETHER AND WHAT DO YOU GET?
AHAB TEAMS UP WITH A WOMAN... AND THE TWO OF THEM BECOME MOODY
PEOPLE AND TOGETHER THEY ARE DANGEROUS...
F. IS THERE CONSEQUENCES FOR MOODINESS?
1 Kings 21:23 And of Jezebel also spake the Lord, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the
wall of Jezreel.
 Him that dieth of Ahab in the city the dogs shall eat; and him that dieth in the field shall
the fowls of the air eat.
 But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight
of the Lord, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up.
III. EVEN SOME GREAT MEN OF GOD HAVE HAD TO OVERCOME MOODINESS...
ELIJAH WAS A MIGHTY MAN OF GOD... YET HE HAD SOME DARK DAYS AND NIGHTS...
A. Elijah served God in a dark day of evil leaders and many spiritual leaders seeking popularity
of the anointing.
B. Elijah tells King Ahab a serious drought is coming...
C. Elijah has to run for his life... and faces a dark day...
Then God test Elijah's faith by DRYING UP THE BROOK...
NOW GOD WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
1 Kings 17:7 And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been
