Mt 16:18

This is the rock on which I will put together my Church, a Church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out.  (THE MESSAGE)

The title of this message is, ‘CHRIST Has Crushed The Giant‘. I’ve titled it this way because I sense we have placed too much emphasis on spiritual warfare by what we have to do rather than on what Jesus Christ has already done.

When Adam and Eve succumbed to satan’s temptation in the garden of Eden, God placed a curse on the serpent:

Gen 3:14-15 God told the serpent: “I’m declaring war between you and the Woman,between your offspring and hers.He’ll wound your head,you’ll wound his heel.”  (THE MESSAGE)

God is never caught out by circumstances and He immediately injects a message of grace, hope and victory into the situation. He prophesies of a coming day when the seed of the woman will crush satan’s head.

It was a woman through whom mankind was defeated and it would be a woman through whom mankind would experience victory.

This prophecy was fulfilled (Lk 1:27-33) when Mary gave birth to Jesus Christ.

From the moment Jesus was born, ‘war was declared’. Satan knew by what Gabriel had said to Mary that Jesus was to be the seed of the woman that would inflict a fatal wound upon him and finish his kingdom, once and for all. (Lk 22:53)

This is why satan, working through Herod (Mt 2:16) tried to kill Jesus in infancy. He knew, once Jesus grew to adulthood, his days were numbered.

God protected Jesus at this time because He wanted the battle between Jesus and satan to be of the time and choosing that  would best serve His plan of salvation.

In my next blog I will be using the story of David and Goliath as a type of the battle on the cross between Jesus and satan.

This YouTube video shows the time in the garden of Gethsemane when Jesus stomps on the head of the serpent with His HEEL.

Worthy of Provision Pt 4

Faith Building

We are looking at 3 keys to God’s provision. We’ve looked at 2: Made Worthy & Made Holy. Let’s look at the 3rd: FAITH.

Believe it or not, I want us to downgrade, ‘faith’. I want us to lower the bar! Why? Most of us have read books by or about, Smith Wigglesworth, Rees Howells, John. G. Lake. etc. These were great men of God who moved in a remarkable degree of faith. Such faith can make us feel as if we have insignificant, insubstantial and minimal faith because we have not achieved anything like the results of these men.

Let me reassure you. Smith Wiggelsworth was a plumber, Rees Howells was a coal miner. Both these men started with the same degree of faith as you and I. They built on that faith and received the revelation knowledge that enabled them to move into ‘great faith’.

You and I are also, men & women of faith. When we became born again, God deposited in our spirit, ‘the measure or degree of faith’.

Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. (KJV)

Did you notice, it was,the measure of faith not, a measure of faith. A measure specifies a quantity, whereas the measure is endless.

God deposited His faith within us so we could believe His Word and receive from Him what we want and need. So  how do I grow my faith. Start small. The next time worry, fear or anxiety come calling, take a promise of God such as:

Prov 3:5,6. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;  In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.  (NKJV)

Now, give your worry to God and receive from Him the promise that He will direct your paths. The word, ‘direct’ means to make prosperous, pleasant and upright. Now meditate on Jesus and His word.

You may take those thoughts of worry back into your mind. Choose to give them back to God again and practice leaving them there. Eventually you will win through and be at peace in your heart and mind.

You will see God deliver you and deal with that worried situation. Now you can rejoice in the Lord for His goodness. But what’s happened?  You’ve now grown in your faith in God.

Once we’ve proved God and His word, we can prove Him again, and again, and again, and we find our faith developing beyond what we thought possible.

Now: let’s put these 3 keys together.

1) We now know we are worthy to receive God’s provision.

2) We now know we are holy enough to receive God’s provision.

3) We now know we have the faith to receive God’s provision.

If we work on these 3 keys, we will see God become Jehovah Jireh to us.

Meditation point: I am well equipped in Christ to receive everything I need from my heavenly Father.

Worthy of Provision Pt 3

Col 1:21-22.  You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.  (NLT)

We’ve been looking at the 3 keys that qualify us to receive the fullness of God’s provision. Key No1 was: Made Worthy. Today we’ll look at:

Key No 2 – Made Holy – Under the O.C. (Old Covenant), Israel were made holy by God if they kept His law.

Deut 28:9 The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the Lord your God and walk in his ways. (NIV)

What follows (Deut 238:11-13) is a list of the blessings that will come upon Israel if they keep His law. However, this is followed by a list of curses (v15-45) if Israel fails to keep His law.

It’s easy to deduce that OBEDIENCE = HOLY = BLESSING (provision).

Whereas: DISOBEDIENCE = UNHOLY = CURSE (non-provision).

The Church,  many times,  has taught an O.C. approach to God instead of the N.C. That puts the onus on man’s behaviour. If you obey God, if you keep holy and pure, if you do this and if you do that, if, if, if, if, if, if …………………………………… !!!!!!

Thus, buried deep in our psyche is a mindset that produces the speech and actions of self-righteousness, holiness, legalism and law-keeping. Hence when we fail to live up to the required standards, we are taught that we have broken fellowship or even relationship with God, that there is sin in our life, that we are carnal and unholy and undeserving of God’s blessing and provision.

This kind of thinking leads Christians into a continual cycle of condemnation, guilt, shame, rejection and the repeated accusations of satan and his demonic host.

Our faith, acceptance and confidence to receive from God is now destroyed and we are condemned to a lifestyle of hopelessness, defeat and poverty.

In our next Blog we’ll look at the N.C. approach to God’s holiness and provision.

Meditation Point: When I fail, sin or exhibit weakness, am I able to confidently approach God and receive from Him or does my guilt and condemnation assign me to a place in the outer courts of God’s presence, longing and hoping that one day it will all change?
