SHOW DOWN WITH NEBUCHANEZZAR – 19/06/2016

  • LAST SUNDAY WE WERE DISCUSSING THE SHOW DOWN ON MT CARMEL
  • TODAY THE SHOW DOWN WILL BE IN BABYLON WITH NEBUCHADNEZZAR
  • HE HAS DECIDED TO CHALLENGE THE FAITH OF SHEDRACH MESHAC AND ABEDNEGO IN GOD
  • ANY SITUATION THAT CHALLENGES YOUR TRUST AND CONFIDENCE IN GOD IS CHALLENGING YOUR FAITH
  • AND THE REVERSE IS EQUALLY TRUE,ANY SITUATION THAT CHALLENGES YOUR FAITH IS CHALENGING YOUR GOD
  • THAT IS WHY THE BATTLE IS NEVER YOURS BUT THE LORD’S
  • APOSTLE PAUL  CALLS US TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH .1 TIMOTHY 6:12
  • IF YOU MUST HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, IF YOU MUST MAKE IT TO HEAVEN YOU NEED TO CONSTANTLY FIGHT A GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH
  • YOU KNOW WHY? SATAN IS NOT TROUBLING YOU ,YOUR MARRIAGE,YOUR FINANCES,CHILDREN CAREER BECAUSE HE IS AFTER THOSE THINGS PER SAY
  • HE IS NOT INTERESTED IN ANY THING BUT YOUR SOUL.HE WANTS TO DIVERT AND DISTRACT YOU JUST SO YOU WILL LOSE YOUR CONFIDEMCE IN GOD
  • SO WHATEVER HE DOES TELL HIM YOU STILL  LOVE THE L,ORD AND THAT HE IS A LOSER
  • IF HE KNOWS HE CANNOT HURT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD HE WILL SOON START TO THINK ABOUT LEAVING YOU ALONE
  • YOUR FAITH WILL BE TESTED AND IT WILL BE VERY HARD,BUT YOU HAVE TO BE THE WINNER
  • ELIJAH CALLED THE FIGHT ON MT CARMEL BECAUSE HE WAS SURE OF HIS GOD
  • DANIEL 32:11 SAYS” AND SUCH AS DO WICKEDLY AGAINST THE COVENANT SHALL HE CORRUPT BY FLATTERIES: BUT THE PEOPLE THAT DO KNOW THEIR GOD SHALL BE STRONG, AND DO EXPLOITS.

WE ALL  ALWAYS WONDER AND ASK THE FOLLOWING  QUESTION

  • IF YOU ARE NOT SERIOUS WITH YOUR WALK WITH GOD,THE ANTICHRIST SPIRIT OF PROSPERITY AND PROPHECIES WILL GRAB YOU
  • YOU WILL ONLY FOCUS ON HOW TO MAKE IT IN THIS LIFE
  • BUT IF YOU LOVE GOD AND WILL NOT BE DIVERTED YOU WILL BE STRONG AND DO EXPLOITS FOR HIM NO MATTER WHAT
  • YOU WILL  PURSUE A ROCK SOLID RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD LIKE SHEDRACH MESCHAC AND ABEDNEGO.
  • YOU WILL NOT BOW TO THE GODS OF THIS WORLD NO MATTER THE HEAT OF THE FIRE YOU FACE
  • YOU WILL STAND IN FAITH BEFORE THE KING LIKE ESTHER AND SAY “IF I PERISH I PERISH”
  • YOU WILL BE STRONG AND DO GREAT THINGS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD
  • WE WERE NICELY TAUGHT ON WEDNESDAY BY ELDER ASSER ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF HOW WE APPLY OUR FAITH
  • WE ARE ALL FACING DIFFERENT CHALLENGES IN LIFE.WHAT DO WE SAY WHEN WE FACE MOUNTAINS?
  • MOUNTAINS OF ILL HEALTH,SICKNESSES,DISEASES,DEBTS,BROKEN FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS,JOBLESSNESS CAN  ONLY BE ROMOVED IF WE APPLY OUR FAITH STUBBORNLY TO THEM MARK 11:23-26
  • YOU HAVE TO  DETERMINE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD WILL NEVER FAIL AND THAT THE MOUNTAIN MUST YIELD IN JESUS NAME
  • LUKE 18 :1-8  THIS WIDOW JUST REFUSED TO GIVE UP.SHE WAS VERY SURE THAT THIS JUDGE WOULD HAVE TO GIVE HER JUSTICE
  • NOBODY ELSE  HAD THE POWER TO HELP HER,SO SHE WOULD NOT GIVE UP ON HIM
  • THE WIDOW REFUSED TO TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER.SHE REFUSED TO GIVE UP ON  THE JUDGE
  • SHE KNEW THAT THE SOLUTION TO HER PROBLEMS LIES WITH THIS JUDGE THAT KEEPS IGNORING HER
  • SHADRACH  MESAHCHAND ABEDNEGO,WERE NOT CONCERNED THAT GOD WAS SILENT
  • THEY DID NOT WORRY THAT GOD SEEMED TO BE IGNORING THEM,THAT GOD WAS TOTALLY SILENT
  • EVEN WHEN NEBUCHANEZZAR SAID “AND WHO IS THAT GOD THAT SHALL DELIVER YOU OUT OF MY HANDS ?” DANIEL 3:15
  • THEY DID NOT FRET, GET WORRIED OR ANXIOUS PS.37:1-3
  • REMEMBER THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT PHARAOH SAID AND HE GOT VERY TERRIBLE RESPONSES FROM GOD
  • BUT THIS TIME GOD WAS SILENT.THEY INCREASED THE TEMPERATURE SEVEN TIMES OVER,GOD WAS STILL QUIET PS 46
  • THEY GOT VERY STRONG MEN TO BIND SHADRACH,MESHACH AND ABEDNEGO,GOD WAS STILL QUIET
  • THE INTENSITY OF THE HEAT OF THE FIRE CONSUMED THOSE WHO THREW THEM IN THE FIRE
  • GOD WAS NOW QUIETLY ACTING .HE ALLOWED JUST THE HEAT OF THE ENEMY’S FIRE TO CONSUME THEIR MIGHTY MEN
  • THEN THE LORD SHOWED UP IN THE FIRE,TAKING A WALK WITH SHADRECH MESHACH AND ABEDNEGO IN A TERRIBLE FIRE
  • BRETHREN THE LORD IS WITH YOU INSIDE THAT FIRE,THAT IS WHY YOU ARE STILL SANE
  • THAT IS WHY YOU HAVE NOT YET LOST YOUR MIND,THAT IS WHY YOU ARE STILL PEACEFUL AND SMILING

LIFT UP YOUR HANDS AND DECLARE

  • THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD,I SHALL NOT WANT
  • NOW HEAR ME PEOPLE OF  GOD,YOU MAY NOT LIKE THAT GOD IS VERY QUIET IN YOUR CASE
  • BUT BELIEVE ME HE IS  DOING SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE NOT SEEIING YET
  • NOBODY EVER CALLS HIM IN VAIN.THE HEAT OF THE FIRE THAT YOUR ENEMY LIT FOR YOU IS ALREADY CONSUMING THEM IN JESUS NAME

WHY DOES GOD ALLOW PROBLEMS TO BUILD UP BEFORE BRINGING HELP?

  • GOD ALLOWS PROBLEMS TO BUILD UP TO GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVE YOUR FAITH AND LOVE FOR HIM JUST LIKE SHEDRACH MESHACK AND ABEDNEGO WERE DOING BEFORENEBUCHANEZZAR
  • THEY TOLD NEBUCHANEZZAR THAT  GOD IS WELL ABLE TO DELIVER THEM AND THAT HE WILL DELIVER THEM
  • THEY KNEW THAT GOD CANNOT LIE.HE CAN AND HE WILL HELP THEM.
  • FURTHER MORE THEY TOLD THE KING THAT IF THEY EXCAPE FROM THE FIRE OF NEBUCHADNEZZAR FINE.
  • THEY ALSO KNEW THAT IF THEY WERE BURNT UP IN THAT FIRE THAT WOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM,THEY WOULD GO TO HEAVEN
  • IF THEY DIED IN THAT FIRE THAT WOULD NEVER BE A PROBLEM AT ALL
  • AS FAR THEY WERE CONCERNED THEY KNEW THAT WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THEM WOULD BE JUST DELIVERANCE FROM GOD. AND THEY WERE OK WITH  IT .
  • APSOTLE PAUL SAYS  IN PHILIPIANS 1:21”TO LIVE IS CHRIST AND TO DIE IS GAIN”
  • BRETHREN THIS IS THE TYPE OF FAITH IN GOD THAT GOD NEEDS FOR HIM TO APPROVE OF US
  • THIS TYPE OF FAITH ALWAYS WINS WITH GOD,.THE END OF THIS TYPE FAITH IS MIRACLES UPON MIRACLES,UPON MIRACLES, UPON ETERNAL LIFE
  • WITH THIS TYPE OF FAITH SATAN MUST LOSE THE BATTLE FOR YOUR SOUL AND MIRACLES
  • HE MAY APPEAR TO BE WINNING IN FACT HE WILL FOOL YOU THAT HE HAS WON SO THAT YOU CAN GIVE UP ON GOD AND LOSE COMPLETELY
  • BUT DON’T FALL FOR HIS LIES,DO NOT BELIEVE HIM.HE IS A BIG LIAR,AND A BIG LOSER
  • JUST LOOK AT JOB .HE SUFFERED IT ALL.HE REALLY HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CURSE GOD AND BACKSLIDE
  • HOW ABOUT DAVID WHO WAS ORDAINED KING AT THE TENDER AGE OF SIXTEEEN AND YET  GOD ALLOWED  SAUL TO CHASE  HIM  AROUND IN DANGEROUS FORESTS FOR 25  YEARS?
  • WHY DID GOD PASS NOAH AND HIS FAMILY THROUGH THAT TERRIBLE FLOOD? WAS IT NOT NOAH THAT HAD THE LAST LAUGH?
  • WHY DID GOD PASS ABRAHAM THROUGH THAT TEST OF CHILDLESSNESS AND WAS AGAIN ASKED TO SACRIFICE THE SAME ISAAC?
  • DID ABRAHAM NOT HAVE THE LAST LAUGH?
  • WHY DID GOD ALLOW THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO PASS THROUGH THE WILDERNESS?
  • WHY WAS PHARAOH ALLOWED TO PURSUE THEM TILL HE ALMOST DROWNED THEM IN THE RED SEA?
  • WHY DID GOD ALLOW DANIEL TO BE THROWN INTO THE LION’S DEN?
  • SHADRACH MESHACH AND ABEDNEGO WERE ALREADY IN THE FIERY FURNACE BEFORE JESUS SHOWED UP IN THE FIRE AND WHY THAT?
  •   WAS GOD SLEEPING? WHY DID JESUS FALL ASLEEP IN THE MIDDLE OF A STORM AND LEFT HIS DISCIPLES PERPLEXED AND FEARFULLY FAITHLESS?
  • WHY WAS JESUS LED INTO THE WILDERNESS FOR 40 DAYS?
  • WHY DID GOD ALLOW HIS TERRIBLE DEATH AND CRUXIFION BEFORE RAISING HIM UP AGAIN JUST TO SAFE US
  • WHY DID PAUL GO THROUGH THAT HORRIBLE STORM IN THE SEA, ONLY TO HAVE A VIPER CURLED ITSELF ON HIS WRIST?
  • WHY DOES GOD SAY “WHEN YOU PASS THROUGH THE FIRE OR RIVER, I WILL BE WITH YOU”?
  • HE DID NOT SAY “IF” HE SAYS “WHEN”
  • IT IS A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE OUR FAITH WILL FACE CHALLENGES
  • BECAUSE YOU WILL NECESSARILY PASS THROUGH THAT JOURNEY
  • JOHN 16:33, ACTS 14:22
  • BUT ALL  GENUINE GOD’S PEOPLE KNOW THEY WILL HAVE THE LAST LAUGH
  • WHATEVER NOW OR IN HEAVEN OR BOTH I SHALL LAUGH AT LAST
  • MATURE CHRISTIANS KNOW THAT THEY WILL LAUGH LAST.THEY CAN SING AND DANCE AND PRAISE GOD IN TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS
  • GOD IS A SPECIALIST AT SHOWING  UP WHEN THE HEAT IS UP
  • IF YOU WOULD ADOPT THE ATTITUDE OF IF GOD ANSWERS MY PRAYERS NOW FINE.
  • IF I DIE IN MY SITUATION FINE I WILL GO TO HEAVEN AND ENJOY GOD’S PRESENCE
  • YOU WOULD BE AMAZED HOW CONFIDENT YOU WILL BE IN GOD
  • AND YOU WILL SEE MANY PRAYERS ANSWERED.BECAUSE YOU WOULD GIVE GODTHE PROVE HE IS ASKING FOR THATYOU BELIEVE  AND TRUST HIM
  • HOW MANY OF US WOULD LIKE TO   PASS THIS TEST OF LOVE AND FAITH IN GOD TODAY?
  • EVERY ONE THAT STANDS WITH GOD AT ALL COSTS GET HIS APPROVAL AND THE APPROVAL RATE IS VERY HIGH. MATHEW 13:18-23, REV 2:9-11
  • WHY IS THE APPROVAL RATE ALWAYS VERY HIGH? BECAUSE YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE OPTION TO GO BACK OR GIVE UP ON GOD.
  • YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE OPTION TO WALK CONTRARY TO GOD’S WILL AND TO STOP TRUSTING HIM  HEB 11:1-17
  • DANIEL WAS TOLD THAT IF HE KEPT PRAYING TO GOD HE WOULD BE THROWN INTO THE LION’S DEN
  • THEY THREW HIM IN THE LIONS DEN BUT THE LIONS BECAME HIS FRIENDS
  • GOD ALLOWS PROBLEMS TO BUILD UP IN ORDER TO PROVE TO HUMAN BEINGS THAT THE ENEMY NEITHER HAS ALL THE POWER NOR THE FINAL SAY.
  • GOD ALLOWS PROBLEMS TO BUILD UP IN ORDER TO MAKE PEOPLE DEVELOP UNSHAKABLE CONFIDENCE IN GOD ALONE
  • GOD ALLOWS PROBLEMS TO BUILD UP IN ORDER TO STRENGTHEN OUR FAITH IN HIM
  • GOD ALLOWS PROBLEMS TO BUILD UP IN ORDER TO MAKE US APPRECIATE THE WORTH OF OUR DELIVERANCE 
  • FINALLY THE MOST IMPORTANT SPIRITUAL LESSON IS HEAVEN AT LAST
  • GOD ALLOWS PROBLEMS TO BUILD UP IN ORDER TO PROVE  OR TEST YOUR OWN SPIRITUAL STRENGTH
  • GOD ALLOWS PROBLEMS TO BUILD UP IN ORDER TO TEACH US SOME  IMPORTANT SPIRITUAL LESSONS HEB 11: 35-40
  • THESE LAST VERSES OF HEBREW 11 TEACH US THAT IT IS NOT ALWAYS TRUE THAT IF YOU LIVE AN EXEMPLARY LIFE OF FAITH THAT YOU WILL LAY YOUR HANDS ON WHAT GOD HAS PROMISED
  • GOD MAY HAVE A BETTER PLAN IN MIND FOR YOU
  • READ VERSE 35-40 AGAIN
  • I DON’TCARE WHAT THOSE PROSPERITY PREACHERS SAY,THEY ALSO HAVE SOMETHINGS THEY TRUSTED GOD FOR WITH ALL THEIR HEARTS AND WHICH THEY NEVER GOT
  • WHY THAT HAPPENS I DON’T KNOW.
  • IT IS PROBABLY PART OF THE TEST TO SEE IF YOU TRULY LOVE GOD,OR YOU JUST TRULY LOVE WHAT HE GIVES ONLY
  • APOSTLE PAUL SAYS SOMETHING IN  2 COR 12:7-10 THAT WE NEED TO CONSIDER AS AN ANSWER HERE.
  • GOD ALLOWED A CERTAIN OPPRESSION IN THE LIFE OF PAUL IN ORDER TO KEEP HIM HUMBLE
  • HE ONLY PRAYED THREE TIMES ABOUT IT.THE LORD TOLD HIM THAT HIS GRACE WAS SUFFICIENT FOR HIM
  • BUT ONE THING IS SURE, APOSTLE PAUL NEVER LOOKED BACK
  • HE FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT AND FINISHED THE RACE AND WENT TO HEAVEN
  • LET US STAND TO READ 2 TIMOTHY 4:6-7
  • “BUT WATCH THOU IN ALL THINGS, ENDURE AFFLICTIONS, DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST, MAKE FULL PROOF OF THY MINISTRY: FOR I AM NOW READY TO BE OFFERED, AND THE TIME OF MY DEPARTURE IS AT HAND. I HAVE FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT, I HAVE FINISHED MY COURSE, I HAVE KEPT THE FAITH: HENCEFORTH THERE IS LAID UP FOR ME A CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, WHICH THE LORD, THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, SHALL GIVE ME AT THAT DAY: AND NOT TO ME ONLY, BUT UNTO ALL THEM ALSO THAT LOVE HIS APPEARING.”
  • IT IS NOT HOW MUCH MONEY, HOW MUCH SUCCESS OR WHATEVER WE HAVE ON EARTH  THAT MATTERS
  • IT IS IMPORTANT TO END THIS RACE VERY WELL.NO MATTER THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS
  • NO MATTER HOW MANY PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED OR NOT
  • WE MUST SAY AT THE END THAT WE HAVE WON THE BATTLE

1)ALTAR CALL FOR SALVATION

2)   NOW LIFT UP YOUR RIGHT  HANDS AND DECLARE FROM YOUR HEART

I WILL. FIGHT A GOOD FIGHT, I WILL FINISH MY COURSE, I WILL KEEP THE FAITH IN JESUS NAME HENCEFORTH I WILL FIX MY HEART AND MIND ON RECEIVING THE CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, WHICH THE LORD, THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, SHALL GIVE ME ON THAT DAY.I REFUSE TO BE WEAK IN FAITH IN JESUS NAME.I REFUSE TO GIVE UP IN JESUS NAME.I REFUSE TO BE DISTRACTED NOR DIVERTED.I THANK YOU LORD THAT YOU WILL KEEP MY SOUL AND SPIRIT INTACT IN YOU AGAINST THAT DAY.

3)  WORSHIP AND MINISTERATION.
