Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 9)

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 9)

Wednesday Inspirational and Motivational Service

Spiritual warfare 009

 Prepare yourself to be used by God

No army has ever gone on the battle field to fight a war without first preparing its soldiers physically, mentally and spiritually.  These three ingredient properly mixed together becomes a potent weapon against Satan’s spiritual warfare games.

You must stand ready to fight the enemy wherever he may be.  Remember God wants to use you on the battlefield.  So stop being a couch potato, get up and get out.

Prepare yourself to be used by God.  Become physically fit, mentally fit and spiritually fit.  Your body is God’s holy temple.  Stop abusing it, and learn to use it for the Glory of God. For the Word of God commands you to do this, it says, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. (Romans 12:1 ESV)

In order to protect you from the enemy’s weapons of war, the Lord provides you with the best protection of all times.  He says to you, “finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Put on the whole armor of God, which ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For 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].

Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, which ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.  (Ephesians 6:10-18)

A Christian is like a soldier whose task it is to do his commander’s will. No soldier would dare go off on his own in the midst of battle, nor would a faithful Christian desert his post when engaged in fighting evil.

The Christian is also like an athlete who prepares for the race, runs hard, and goes by the rules. We too must remember that, as Christians, discipline and honesty count for a great deal if we are to succeed.

Finally, the Christian is like a farmer who breaks up the stubborn earth to bring out the best that is in it. A farmer’s life is never easy, but the rewards are worth it. So too, for a Christian, we put our hand to the plow and do not turn back.

In all of those figures we have before us the example of Jesus Christ. Let us be strong in his name and followers of the one that win all battles that we may enter into.  Never enter into a battle without the Lord on your side.

Therefore, I conclude this lesson by encouraging each of you with these few words, “PREPARE YOURSELF TO BE USED BY GOD!”

Good morning children of God what a mighty God we serve, he woke us up this morning and started us on our way. We are truly blessed to be able to come together in his holy name and lift him up in praise and worship on this glorious day. I thank him for each one of you who have taken a moment to lift the Lord up in your praises. Now let us lift each other up and bless one another this day. For he said in his word, that where two or more of his children gather in His name, that he will be with us, therefore my brothers and sisters, as I write these words to you this day, I can clearly feel the power of the Holy Spirit moving and stirring about in my hands and throughout my body and mind, prompting me to speak His words of truth to you that you may be empowered to go out and speak the same to others that you may come in contact with. For the Lord has much work for each one of us to do. He is encouraging us to move now and be about His business. We are His sheep and we are gather together in His name to be feed the truth of His word in order that we may go out and feed others that are in need. Let this be the day that you have been praying and asking the Lord to change you into the person that He desires you to be. Be filled with the Holy Spirit and allow the Holy Spirit to direct your life. Lift His up in High praise this day because He is truly worthy of all praise and glory.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE STAY CALM GOD HAS PLANS FOR YOU

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile. (Jeremiah 29:11-14 ESV)
Stay calm; mind your own business; do your own job. You’ve heard all this from us before, but a reminder never hurts. We want you living in a way that will command the respect of outsiders, not lying around sponging off your friends. (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 MSG)

MY MAXIMIZED PRAYER FOR CALMNESS

Father, in the name of Jesus, I seek your blessings for CALMNESS over my life and the lives of all those that you have placed in my pathway. Father as we walk out our purpose in this life and continue to move swiftly towards our destination, with our heads hung high, and our eyes wide open, we seek your guidance over all that we do. We know evil is all around us, threatening to destroy us, but we are leaning and depending on your promises father, and we will remain steadfast in your word, with our minds calm, our eyes focus on the prize, and always minding your own business. This we will do in the name of Jesus. AMEN!

OUR WORSHIP MESSAGE IS CALMNESS

 

 

QUESTION: How important is Alter Call?
It is the most important thing that any Servant of the Lord can do. We are called to bring the lost sheep in from the cold. How can we do this if we never call them to come forth and accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior? When we make the call the Holy Spirit will convict them to answer the call. Therefore, if you are truly a disciple of Christ, it is your obligation to make the call.

TODAY’S ALTER CALL:
If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me: “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives. I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins. If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE in glory.”

We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers. You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us. We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions. May the saving grace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

Saturday Morning Devotional Service of Prayer and Praise (The prayer of Jabez)

I WILL LIFT THE LORD UP IN HIGH PRAISES

GRACE EPISCOPAL CHURCH TRENTON, N.C. (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Good morning children of God, and indeed what a great morning this really is. For the Lord our God has awaken us and provided us with a brand-new opportunity to lift him up in high praises. For this reason, we ought to lift up holy hands where ever we are and just begin to praise his holy name. For he is worthy to be praised and today’s Devotional Service is designed to concentrate our minds on praising the Lord, after a very long week of being in the secular world.  Now join with me and let us together focus our attention away from the world and upon God and the things of Heaven.

OUR SCRIPTURE READING IS PSALM 136 by Pastor Davis

Today my brothers and sisters, we are a blessed people. We are a free people we can lift up the name of Jesus, praise and worship him without fear of persecution, and when we do not take advantage of this blessed opportunity and shower him with praising and serving him in his holiness, we are cursing our blessing and we are not deserving of the Lords grace that he has showered upon us. Let us at this very moment, not cut off our blessing, but lift up the Lord our God in high praises and Thanksgiving.

Praying for each other’s Spiritual Empowerment

Praying for each other’s Spiritual Empowerment

prayer alter 02

During the course of our lives, we all have had someone to pray for us.  Prayer is the key that unlocks the door to our blessings, and when we learn that our purpose in life is to serve others, and we can truly be effective as a servant by praying in the Spirit for our fellowman, we are then moved to pray without ceasing.

NOW LET US PRAY:

 

 

PAUL’S PRAYER FOR SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT:

Paul’s prayer for spiritual empowerment for the Ephesians was that they be united by the Spirit, indwelt by Christ, and filled with all the fullness of God’s love.  We know that God made the Holy Spirit available to all who believed in Jesus Christ as Savior.  The Spirit provides power for our new lives.

The Prayer that Paul prayed for Spiritual Empowerment was a beautiful and powerful prayer.  Now listen to Paul words as he spoke them in Ephesians 3:14-21:

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height.

To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God?  Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.  Amen.

We find that in this text’s prayer, Paul asked that the Holy Spirit deepen His work in their lives in three ways:

  1.   That Christ would dwell–more literally, “be at home” in their hearts by faith, that is, that He would move from being an acquaintance to being the center of their church family;
  2.   That they would grasp God’s love at a spiritual level, beyond intellectual or theological knowledge.
  3.   That they would be filled with God’s fullness, that is, that the Holy Spirit would reveal the things of Christ (John 16) more fully, achieving God’s fuller work in each life unhindered, unquenched, ungrieved.

Today my brothers and sisters let us be of one mind living in the body of Christ and pray for each other’s spiritual empowerment.

Until we meet in our next session, may God bless each of you ABUNDANTLY!

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 8)

 

SPIRITUAL WARFARE 006

How prayer can defeat your enemy

Good Morning My Dear Brothers and Sisters; in our lesson this week on “preparing for Spiritual warfare”, we examine for you, “How prayer can defeat your enemy!”  It is so important that we learn how to fight and win this battle using the weapons that God has provided for us and stop trying to use the devil’s own weapon because they are built for him and his evil spirits and they will fail us every time.  So let’s get in the game and learn how to use the most potent weapon in our  warfare and that is the weapon of prayer.

prayer alter 02

The Lord wants each one of us to become Spiritual Fit, preparing our minds as well as our physical bodies to fight and win.  He wants us to be rooted and grounded in his word.  He wants us to stop allowing satin to brain wash us and become totally spiritually fit to serve him.  He stands ready to prepare us for this Spiritual warfare game that is upon us.

Once again, you see that the bible commands us to, “Take

thehelmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God:  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”  (Ephesians 6:17-18). 

You see when you have the word of God in you; God puts the ultimate weapon in your hand to fight the enemy.  The word of God becomes your sword.  Your enemy cannot stand against you in anyway, for God’s word will cut like a two edged sword, cutting to the right and to the left giving you power to defeat the enemy.

Know that you must always be in prayer, for it is through prayer that you have a direct phone line to God.  You can call him up any time.  He stands ready to help you defeat his greatest enemy called satin.  Pray for each other and your prayers shall be heard.  In Luke 6:28, the bible instructs us to, “Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.  In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 the bible instructs us to Pray without ceasing.  Having a proper prayer life will guide you successfully through your spiritually fitness.

YOU ARE CALLED BY THE WORD OF GOD

YOU ARE CALLED BY THE WORD OF GOD

This week’s Challenge is to Proclaim the “I Am” that lives in You

In John 8:32, the Word of God says, know the truth and the truth will set us FREE!  We have been commanded by the Word to know who we are, who God is, and who we are in God.  Do you understand the truth of these three simple principles.  You need to starting “Proclaiming the great I AM” that lives within you.  Go here NOW, listen and learn.

 

 

God said to Moses, I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I am has sent me to you.’”  (Exodus 3:14 ESV)

But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?” He said, “But I will be with you, and this shall be the sign for you, that I have sent you: (Exodus 3:11-12 ESV)
