Heart Circumcision – 21/02/2016

         What is the literal meaning of circumcision or what does it mean to circumcise  someone?

         Every male child is born with a foreskin which God says should be cut off

         God gave the instruction to Abraham and passed it on to the Jews that all male children should be circumcised.

         If not they will be cut off from His Covenant love, blessings, protection and provision

         God nearly killed the two sons of Moses because he did not circumcise them on time

         Am sure we all understand what physical circumcision means both in the BIBLE and in our world today

         But then what does it mean to have our hearts circumcised?

         The New Testament talks about Heart Circumcision. Romans 2:29   Col 2:11

         Heart  circumcision happens when Jesus enters our heart and does a spiritual transformation there by the power of the Holy Spirit

          This is  so that we can become one with Him and one with God

         It is only the   Holy Spirit that can perform this powerful cleansing operation in our hearts

         This was why the Lord directed the early Disciples to go to Jerusalem and wait till the Holy Spirit clothes them with power Luke 24:49

         He gave them the instruction to go out and preach the Gospel

         But they were not allowed to do anything without first waiting on the Lord for cleansing and empowerment

         They waited on the Lord for ten days and then what happened?

         Let’s all read Acts 2:1-10

         The disciples spent some time examining themselves, confessing and repenting and praying specifically for THE POWER OF GOD TO OVERSHADOW THEM

         The result was the infilling with fire for cleansing, deliverance and divine empowerment

         Brethren when we fast and pray we don’t take prayer for personal cleansing, deliverance and empowerment serious

         We don’t seek God’s power and presence seriously

         We just focus on our personal needs and of course get answers that don’t satisfy us

         Or answers that Satan comes to snatch from us because we have not dealt with our hearts

          Or because we have not dealt with the curses and disturbances in our blood line that we inherited from our foundations

         Curses and disturbances that have troubled all our family members from generation to generation

         These are covenant curses  that won’t just disappear just because we gave our hearts to Jesus or simply because we can shout and pray.

         We must specially take our hearts to Jesus for spiritual circumcision.

          Or else the roots of iniquity from our blood line will suddenly catch up with us

         Why did David a man after God’s heart, a king and a priest suddenly become an adulterer and a murderer?

         Judah was his ancestor, Judah slept with his daughter-in-law who he thought was a prostitute and tried to cover it up

         The same unrighteousness was in David but to greater decree

         Solomon was so possessed he had 700 wives and 300 concubines

         He built wicked altars for their gods.

         If iniquity is not dealt with it grows from generation to generation

         The hearts become more and more wicked

         As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.

         Prov 4: 23  “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”

         Jesus says in Matt 12:33-37:

“Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”

         Jesus simply links the goodness of the fruit to the goodness of the tree

         This is our family tree.

         Then He speaks of GENERATION OF VIPERS

         Then he says clearly that the people’s hearts are evil because their ancestors are evil,

         They are evil from generation to generation

         So they speak evil from their hearts and are faithless when they pray

         When they pray they are full of fear, unbelief and doubts and cannot trust the Lord

         Their relationship with him is full of rebellion and disobedience just the way all the people in their generation treated God

         So because of all these evil backgrounds, Satan has a legal ground and right to rob people of their miracles and peace

         Jesus warns in Matt 12:43-45:

“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.  Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.  Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.”

         Check this out everyone, here is the warning of Jesus:

         The unclean spirit goes out

         It looks for where to stay and finds none

         It now says am going back to my former house,

         It comes back, finds its former house clean but empty

         Empty of prayer, faith in and commitment to Christ, no word of God, no service to Christ, just self and sin are there

         It now invites seven more terrible demons and occupy the clean but empty space

         This is why many go through deliverance all the time but no change in their situation

         The person can even backslides seriously.

         Why? an empty hypocritical heart

         This was what David realized after his fall as he wrote Psalm 51

         He cried to God for mercy, for forgiveness and cleansing

         AND ASKED GOD TO CREATE IN HIM  A CLEAN AND A NEW HEART .PSALM 51:7

         Let us take other examples from the Bible, Samson was anointed and powerful

         He was to deliver a backslidden people, a people from where he also came out

         So his heart was full of disobedience, rebellion, pride, lust, and fornication which were gifts from Satan and from his ancestors

         He fulfilled his calling in serious disgrace though heavily anointed

         His heart was not circumcised, his heart was not focused on God

         So was Solomon, so was David but he quickly repented and prayed

         So were Ananias and Saphira,money ruled their hearts

         Imagine Peter going back to fishing and taking all the other Disciples with him after all his experience with the Lord

         After denying the Lord and repenting in tears

         Satan took him right back to the generational trade of his for fathers after the Lord left for heaven

         He went straight back to the old Peter, he went fishing and took the others with him

         Thank God Jesus came back from heaven to rescue them all

          The Lord asked Peter, the same question three times:

“So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.  He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.  He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.  Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.  This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.” John 21:15-19

         Jesus knew Peter had a spiritual heart disease and addressed him with his original name “Simon son of Jonas,”

         Remember Jesus changed his name to Peter the rock

         But now his generational demons from his Father’s house were confusing him

         So Jesus was asking hin will you love me with your whole heart and follow me  and feed my flock

         Or will you follow the trade of your fathers?

         If Jesus could perfectly rescue Peter He can surely rescue you and I

         Today we are going to humble ourselves like David did and pray for spiritual heart surgery

         If you don’t take care of your heart you will have a spiritual heart attack

         You will struggle to follow the Lord and struggle to have your prayers answered.

         You will be stubborn and always resist the Holy Ghost.

         The bottom line is this God is after our hearts and so is Satan

         Satan has shut wicked arrows of bitterness and generational curses into the hearts of men

         He has cursed the blood line of mankind with sin and iniquity

         Because the heart regulates your blood flow, your heart must be freed and cleansed if you must be truly delivered

         We can cry be loosed, be free, come out etc,if your heart is uncircumcised nothing will really happen

         You must have the same Pentecostal experience of the disciples of Christ

         The fire of the Holy Ghost must rest on your head and enter your  heart to purify your blood even for your healing you need the cleansing fire Matt 3;11

         This fire will consume all inherited iniquity, sins, sicknesess,curses and diseases

         All the disciples that experienced Pentecost were victorious and great men of God

         They successfully served the Lord to the end.

         Without heart circumcision there can be no deliverance

         Without true repentance there can be no true heart circumcision

         Many pastors bishops, elders evangelists and prophets have not ever really repented talk less of heart circumcision

         THIS is why we see all kinds of wrong doing in the church today

         Nobody can succeed in Ministry without heart circumcision

         Anyone that experiences heart circumcision will hate the world, hate iniquity and be a brand new person

         This secret is for those who have ears to hear in the spirit HEART CIRCUMCISION IS THE TARGET OF SATAN.HE HAS REPLACED IT WITH WORLDLY GLORY AND HYPOCRISY

         He knew that heart circumcision was the secret of the power of the early church. Psalm15

         The church had one  faith, one spirit, one fire baptism and on God and Father of all

         Satan has fired the arrow of the present world into the church 2 tim 4:10

         Ananias and Saphira died when Satan first attacked the early church with hypocrisy and the love of the world

          But Demas left Paul and followed the world and started a worldly ministry that is still spreading till today

          

HOW CAN I BE CIRCUMCISED IN MY HEART?

1.      YOU  MUST FIRST HEAR THE PREACHING OF THE SOUND GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.THE MESSAGE WILL EMPHASIZE HEAVEN  ROM10:14

2.      THEN YOU WILL COME TO REPENTANCE

3.      THEN YOU WILL EXPERIENCE TRUE SALVATION

4.      THEN YOU WILL EXPERIENCE DELIVERANCE AND HEART CIRCUMCISION

5.      THEN YOU CAN TRUST THE TONGUES YOU SPEAK AND EXPERIENCE DIVINE CALLING AND BLESSINGS

         This was the experience of the apostles on the day of Pentecost

         This was why they could no longer sin. This was the secret behind their power and success

         This was what happened to peter this was, why their prayer meetings were meaningful and prayers were answered

         They would speak in tongues and the building would shake

LET US PRAY: ACTS 7:51-60 THESE VERSES SHOW US THE CONTRAST BETWEEN CIRCUMCISED AND UNCIRCUMCISED HEARTS

WE MUST REPENT AS WE READ PSALM 51   AND CALL ON HE NAME OF THE LORD FOR A BRAND NEW HEART

WE MUST PRAY FOR THE APOSTOLIC FIRE OF THE DAY OF PENTECOST

WE MUST ASK FOR THE COALS OF FIRE THAT CLEANSED ISAIAH TO CLEANSE US FULLY

 PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS ON YOUR HEARTS,ASK THE LORD FOR YOUR BLOODLINE DELIVERANCE BY FIRE

GO AFTER YOUR FOUNDATION WITH FIRE, .DEAL WITH ALL FOUNDATIONAL CURSESJOEL 22:21-30 ASK GOD TO FULFILL HIS PROMISE IN EZEKIEL 36:24EZEKIEL 36:22-38  PRAY IT VERSE BY VERSE
