Praying yourself into faith

As we fasted and waited on the lord this month,the lord showed us the importance of dealling with negative and positive strong holds

  • WE SAW THAT STRONGHOLDS ARE MIND SETS AND WHEN THEY ARE NEGATIVE THEY CAN DISTURB OUR LIVES AS CHRISTIANS
  • THEY CAN ACTUALLY PREVENT OUR PRAYERS FROM BEING ANSWERED ISAIAH 59:1-2:

“Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”

  • TO DEAL WITH STRONG HOLD OF PRIDE,LUST,ANGER,LIES,UNFORGIVENESS RELIGION,WE SAW THAT WE NEDDED TO DEAL WITH THE STONGHOD OF INIQUITY
  • 1 SAMUEL 15:22-23
  • And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD?  Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.  Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
  • WE FINALLY PRAYED FOR THE POSITIVE STRONGHOLD OF FAITH IN CHRIST
  • SAUL FELL BECAUSE HE DISREGARDED THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • HE PARTIALLY OBEYED GOD AND LOST HIS KINGSHIP
  • TO REIGN IN LIFE WE NEED TO HEAR THE VOICE OF THE LORD AND  COMPLETELY OBEY THAT VOICE
  • SPEAKING REGULARLY IN TONGUES IS ONE OF THE WAYS WE MUST ADOPT IF WE WANT TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE AND WALK IN THE SPIRIT AND PROSPER
  • LET US FIRST CONSIDER SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF PRAYING IN TONGUES
  • REST AND REFRESHING
  • PRAYING IN TONGUES GIVES YOU REST AND REFRESHING
  • ISAIAH 28:11-12For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this peopleTo whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear”
  • SUPERNATURAL SIGNS WILL  FOLLOW YOU THAT BELIEVE MARK 16:17-
  • YOU DON’T HAVE TO CHASE SIGNS, HOLY SPIRIT IS ALWAYS ON AND READY
  • TONGUES  ARE THE INITIAL SIGNS OF THE  BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • ACTS 2:1-10 YOU CAN’T RESIST IT, THE POWER CAME INTENSELY ON THE APOSTLES.IT DID  NOT COME  GENTLY AT ALL.
  • 120 PERSONS GATHERED IN THE UPPER ROOM  AND  THEY ALL SPOKE IN TONGUES, MARK 16: 17 , ACTS 19:1-6  THE GIFT IS FOR ALL WHO BELIEVE
  • TONGUES ARE FOR PRAYING MYSTERIES 1 COR. 14:2

ACCIDENTS THAT SHOULD  HAVE BEEN  FATAL CAN BE OVERTURNED WHEN GOD ALLOWS YOU TO PRAY

ALWAYS  PRAY IN TONGUES FOR YOUR CHILDREN.

  • PRAYING IN TONGUES  KEEPS US IN LINE WITH  THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD.

THE HOLY SPIRIT  IS THE GREATEST SEARCH ENGINE ON EARTH ROMANS 8:26-27

  • SPEAKING IN TONGUES FILLS OUR HEARTS WITH THE LOVE OF GOD

ROMANS 5:5 YOU SHOULD PRAY IN TONGUES, FOR AT LEAST 1 HOUR EVERY DAY. YOU CAN BE PRAYING IN TONGUES SILENTLY AT WORK OR AT SCHOOL

  • . PRAYING IN TONGUES  STIMULATES YOUR FAITH AND KEEPS YOU IN THE LOVE OF GOD. JUDE 20
  • IT HELPS YOU TO EXERCISE YOUR FAITH. IT GETS YOU BEYOND YOUR RATIONAL MIND AND GETS YOU INTO THE MIND OF CHRIST.
  • GALATIANS 5:6  SAYS THE LOVE OF GOD IS INCREASED IN OUR HEARTS, AS WE PRAY IN TONGUES AND OUR FAITH BEGINS TO WORK  MUCH BETTER.
  • WE EXPERIENCE THE LOVE OF GOD,HIS  ACCEPTANCE ,HIS PRESENCE AND HIS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
  • WE UNDERSTAND THAT  WE ARE ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED
  • OUR FAITH AND CONFIDENCE IN GOD GET STIMULATED.AND WE ARE ABLE TO   BELIEVE ALL HIS PROMISES. MATHEW 7:7-11
  • IT HELPS YOU TO LOVE  ALL PEOPLE ,EVEN THOSE WHO ARE UNLOVABLE AND PROUD
  • SPEAKING IN TONGUES  IS FOR PERSONAL EDIFICATION 1 CORINTHIANS 14:4
  • THE CHURCH IS SO BIG ON PROPHECY THESE DAYS
  • AND REALLY WE SHOULD NOT DESPISE PROPHESYING 1 THESS.5:16-24
  • PROPHECY IS GREAT, WE NEED PROPHECY
  • BUT  WE NEED PROPHETS THAT HAVE INTEGRITY WITH GOD
  • WE NEED APOSTLES, PASTORS EVANGELISTS AND ALL GOD’S CHILDREN , THAT HAVE INTEGRITY,
  • WE NEED BOTH INTEGRITY AND GIFTS NOT ONE WITHOUT THE OTHER.
  • WHAT IS SELF-EDIFICATION? SELF OR PERSONAL EDIFICATION  MEANS THAT  I MUST CONSTANTLY RECHARGE MY SPIRITUAL  BATTERY .
  • FOR EXAMPLE,IF I DON’T RECHARGE MY PHONE THE BATTERY DIES AND I CAN’T RECEIVE A CALL
  • CBE TRANSLATION SAYS YOU DO GOOD TO YOURSELF WHEN YOU PRAY IN TONGUES
  • NEW LIVING TRANSLATION SAYS YOU STRENGTHEN YOURSELF PERSONALLY IN THE LORD WHEN YOU PRAY IN TONGUES
  • THE LIVING BIBLE SAYS YOU HELP YOURSELF GROW  SPIRITUALLY
  • AMPLIFIED BIBLE SAYS YOU IMPROVE YOURSELF, WE NEED ALL THESE
  • TONGUES  ARE ALSO FOR GIVING THANKS 1 COR. 14:16
  • WHEN PRAYING IN TONGUES ON YOUR OWN LEARN TO THANK GOD IN TONGUES,
  • BUT IF MANY UNBELIEVERS ARE SITTING WITH YOU IN A GATHERING DON’T START THANKING GOD IN TONGUES UNLESS YOU ARE SO LED BY THE SPIRIT
  • IF SO LED, THEN DO IT BECAUSE TONGUES ARE A SIGN FOR UNBELIEVERS
  • IF GOD LEADS YOU TO DO IT, IT MAY IMPACT THEM POWERFULLY.
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 14:28 SAYS SPEAKING IN TONGUES LEAD TO FREEDOM FROM WORLDLY CONTAMINATION,
  • PAUL IS SAYING THAT IF YOU ARE WHERE PEOPLE ARE  TRYING TO DISTURB OR CONTAMINATE YOU WITH THEIR PERVERSION, IMMORALITY OR  FALSE DOCTRINE
  • YOU MUST START  TO TALK TO GOD QUICKLY IN TONGUES,YOU MAY  EVEN PRAY  QUIETLY WITHOUT OPENING YOUR MOUTH
  • ONE OF THE WAYS YOU CAN STAY WALKING IN THE SPIRIT OR PLUGGED INTO THE SPIRIT IS TO LEARN HOW TO PRAY QUIETLY IN TONGUES IN A PUBLIC PLACE
  • JUST CAN JUST BE  PRAYING  UNDER YOUR BREATH, YOUR  MOUTH  MAY NOT BE MOVING AT ALL  BUT YOU ARE PRAYING.
  • NOBODY WILL EVEN KNOW YOU ARE PRAYING IN TONGUES MEANWHILE  YOU ARE RECEIVING REST AND REFRESHING
  • DO YOU KNOW YOU CAN BE LISTENING TO SOMEBODY, READING THE BIBLE, READING A QUESTION PAPER IN AN EXAM HALL AND BE PRAYING QUIETLY IN TONGUES ,ASKING THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HELP YOU?
  • YOU CAN BE EXAMINING A PATIENT OR  TALKING TO ANOTHER PERSON AND BE PRAYING IN TONGUES
  • YOU CAN BE DOING MANY THINGS AND BE PRAYING TONGUES AT THE SAME TIME BECAUSE WHEN  YOUR SPIRIT IS PRAYING YOUR MIND IS SILENT 1 COR. 14:13-15
  • THIS HAS BEEN PROVED SCIENTIFICALLY.
  • SCIENCE HAS ALSO PROVED THAT  SPEKING IN TONGUES CAN MAKE YOU LIVE LONG AND FILL YOU WITH CONSTANT JOY
  • PRAYING IN TONGUES AND READING YOUR BIBLE AT THE SAME TIME WILL OPEN UP THE WORD FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND  IT . YOU WILL GET DOUBLE BLESSING.
  • PRAYING IN TONGUES HELPS YOU BECOME  HOLY SPIRIT CONSCIOUS AND GOD MINDED  1 COR. 6:19 , 1 COR. 14:14
  • YOU ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE GOD’S PRESENCE AND THE RIVER OF GOD IS CONSTANTLY FLOWING OUT OF YOUR SPIRIT. JOHN 7:37-39
  • GOD’S VOICE COMES OUT OF YOU. THE HOLY SPIRIT YOUR HELPER, YOUR COMFORTER READILY HELPS YOU
  • TOO MANY CHRISTIANS ARE ALLOWING THEIR  NATURAL MIND TO LEAD THEM ALL THE TIME, AND IT SHOULD NOT BE LIKE THAT
  • WE NEED TO PRAY OFTEN IN TONGUES TO TAP INTO THE WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • KEEP YOURSELF TUNED INTO GOD’S RADIO AND CHANNEL ALL THE TIME
  • IN ORDER TO  BE CONSCIOUS OF GOD’S POWER IN YOU
  • ACTS 1:8  SAYS THAT THE SUPERNATURAL ABILITY OF GOD TO RULE AND REIGN  IS MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU  BY HIS SPIRIT DWELLING IN YOU
  • THE NINE GIFTS IN YOU CAN EASILY MANIFESTN IF YOU PRAY OFTEN IN TONGUES
  • THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BRINGS YOUR TONGUE UNDER SUBJECTION TO GOD JAMES 3:8
  • THE POWER AND AUTHORITY IN OUR TONGUE IS GREAT
  • WHEN WE USE OUR TONGUE TO BLESS AND EDIFY PEOPLE WE ARE BRINGING THEM UNDER GOD’S AUTHORITY.
  • WHEN WE USE OUR TONGUE TO DESTROY PEOPLE AND CRITICISE WITHOUT LOVE THEN IT IS  SOMETHING ELSE.
  • THERE IS CONSTRUCTIVE OR POSITIVE CRITICISM AND THERE ARE DESTRUCTIVE ONES BY PEOPLE LIKE SAMBALAT AND TOBIAS.
  • CRITICISM  CAN BE USED TO GET OTHERS TO GROW SPIRITUALLY, ESPECIALLY IF IT IS COMING FROM AN HONEST SPIRIT FILLED SPIRITUAL LEADER,WHO HAS INTEGRITY WITH GOD
  • WE NEED TO GET OUR TONGUES UNDER CONTROL BY SPEAKING IN TONGUES
  • TONGUES IS A SIGN OR ADVERTISER TO UNBELIEVERS 1 CORINTHIANS 14:22
  • DON’T THINK UNBELIEVERS WILL ALWAYS RUN AWAY IF THEY HEAR YOU SPEAK IN TONGUES ,
  • IF DONE WITH  SERIOUS INTERPRETATION, THE FEAR OF THE LORD OR THE TERROR OF GOD WILL BE REALEASED AND THEY WILL BE SAVED 2 COR. 5:11
  • THE APOSTLES WALKED IN THE FEAR OF GOD AND IN THE COMFORT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ACTS 5:14
  • WE NEED BOTH NOT JUST ONE OF THEM.WE NEED TO WALK IN REVERENTAL FEAR  AND RESPECT FOR GOD
  • WE ALSO NEED TO WALK  IN THE COMFORT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

13   TONGUES ARE THE DOORS TO THE SUPERNATURAL AND THE REST OF THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT, 

  • ALL THE OTHER GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT WILL EASILY MANIFEST IN OUR LIVES IF WE PRAY OFTEN ENOUGH IN THE SPIRIT
  • ACTS 19:4-6 SAYS THEY SPOKE IN TONGUES AND PROPHESIED
  • THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE OF THE GIFT OF FAITH  JUDE :20:

But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

• WE SPOKE ABOUT  MOVING FROM THE STRONGHOLD OF INIQUITY TO THE STRONGHOLD OF FAITH AS WE  FASTED AND PRAYED.

  • OUR FAITH IN CHRIST IS THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE ON EARTH

• JESUS SAYS “IF THOU CANST BELIEVE ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM THAT BELIEVES

• WHEN YOU ARE WALKING IN FAITH YOU ARE WALKING WITH GOD FOR WITH HIM NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE MARK 9:23 , MARK 10:27

JOHN 14:12 JESUS SAYS IF YOU BELIEVE IN HIM YOU WILL DO HIS WORKS AND EVEN GREATER WORKS

• SO FAITH MAKES YOU OPERATE LIKE GOD AND TO INCREASE THE QUALITY OF YOUR FAITH YOU MUST PRAY OFTEN IN TONGUES

• THE GIFT OF FAITH AND SPEAKING FREQUENTLY   IN TONGUES WILL  EMPOWER YOU TO HANDLE WHAT ONLY GOD CAN HANDLE

• FAITH IS OUR ACCESS TO THE POWER OF GOD, ROMAN 1:16

• WE ARE EMPOWERED BY FAITH, JESUS TOLD THE WOMAN WITH THE ISSUE OF BLOOD “THY FAITH HAS MADE THEE WHOLE

  • FAITH IS GOD’S SECRET RELEASED TO YOU AND I FOR SUPERNATURAL RESULTS
  • FAITH IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD’S KINGDOM

• THEN IF  FAITH IS  SO POWERFUL WHY DO SO MANY CHILDREN OF GOD APPEAR SO POWERLESS AND HELPLESS? SOMETHING MUST BE WRONG WITH OUR FAITH

• THE PROBLEM IS THAT FAITH SHOULD NOT JUST BE IN THE HEAD

  • IT SHOULD BE A PRACTICAL SPIRITUAL TOOL FOR YOUR EMPOWERMENT WITH GOD AND MAN

  YOU MUST FAST AND PRAY  OFTEN  IN TONGUES AND MEDITATE ON GOD’S PROMISES IF YOU WANT YOUR FAITH TO COME ALIVE

• IT IS WRITTEN  “ FAITH COMES BY HEARING AND HEARING OF GOD’S WORD”

• FIX YOUR MIND ON GOD’S WORD   ,LET IT BECOME YOUR STRONGHOLD, LET IT BECOME YOUR HIDING PLACE

• AS A MAN THINKETH SO HE IS WE ARE NOT SERVING A FAKE GOD

EPHESIANS 6:10 SAYS FAITH IS A SPIRITUAL WEAPON •FAITH IN CHRIST IS OUR VICTORY IT IS AN EVER WINNING SPIRITUAL FORCE 1 JOHN 5:4-5

• IF FAITH IS SO POWERFUL WHY ARE WE SO HELPLESS AND WHY DON’T WE GET ALL OUR PRAYERS ASNWERED?

  • SOMETHING MUST BE WRONG WITH WHAT WE CALL FAITH

• NOW LISTEN CAREFULLY FAITH COMES NOT JUST  BY HEARING GOD’S WORD BUT MAINLY BY HEARING FROM GOD ROMANS 10:17

• 80% SO OF THE HEROS OF FAITH IN HEB 11 CAME ON THAT LIST BY HEARING DIRECTLY FROM GOD

• FOR EXAMPLE ABRAHAM THE FATHER OF FAITH HEARD DIRECTLY FROM GOD

• THE STRONGHOLD OF ABRAHAM’S FAITH CAME FROM HEARING DIRECTLY FROM GOD ABRAHAM WAITED ON GOD EVERYDAY.HE HAD AN ALTAR IN HIS HOUSE

• NOBODY HEARS DIRECTLY FROM GOD AND EVER REMAINS THE SAME AGAIN

LIFT UP YOUR HAND AND PULL DOWN THE STRONGHOLD OF SPIRITUAL DEAFNESS N YOUR LIFE, CHURCH AND FAMILY IN JESUS NAME

• GOD TOLD ABRAHAM “ GET OUT OF THY COUNTRY FROM OUT OF THY KINDRED AND I WILL BLESS YOU  ETC

• AND SO ABRAHAM DEPARTED

• NOW STRONGHOLD OF INIQUITY TAKES PLACE WHEN YOU HEAR THE WORD AND  YOU STURBORNLY RESIST IT OR PARTIALLY OBEY GOD LIKE SAUL DID

  • 1 SAMUEL 15 :23 SAYS STURBONRNESS IS AS INIQUITY AND IDOALTORY.THAT IS ACTUALLY WHAT IS WRONG WITH OUR FAITH

MANY  HAVE BEEN HEARING THE WORD, BUT NOT GOD’S VOICE BECAUSE OF THE STRONGHOLD OF INQUITY AND SPIRITUAL DEAFNESS

• HEARING FROM GOD AND OBEYING HIS VOICE  IMMEDIATELY PUTS US IN THE STRONGHOLD OF FAITH  AND POWERFUL ANOINGTING

  • NO ONE CAN HEAR FROM GOD AND DOUBT HIM

• THE VOICE OF THE LORD IS THE CURE FOR ALL DOUBTS AND FEARS

PSALM 29 SAYS HIS VOICE IS MIGHTIER THAN MANY WATERS

• YOU CAN’T HEAR FROM GOD AND NOT BELIEVE HIM

• YOU CAN’T HEAR FROM GOD WITHOUT ACTING ON WHAT YOU HEAR

• THEREFORE THE STRONGHOLD OF FAITH IS ACCESS TO GOD’S VOICE

• ALL GREAT EXPLOITS OF MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD ARE A PRODUCT OF HIS VOICE

• THEY WILL ALWAYS SAY “GOD TOLD ME “, “GOD SAID GOD SPOKE TO ME” ETC

• THINK OF MOSES, NO NORMAL PERSON WOULD HAVE FACED PHAROAH, BUT GOD’S VOICE WOULD MAKE YOU TRY ANYTHING

• THE VOICE OF GOD WILL MAKE YOU THINK THE UNTHINKABLES

• THE VOICE OF GOD WILL MOVE THE UNMOVABLE,AND DO THE UNDOABLE

• GOD TOLD MOSES WHAT TO DO AT THE BURNING BUSH

• HE TOLD HIM WHAT TO SPEAK TO PHAROAH IN CLEAR AUDIBLE VOICE

• ABRAHAM HEARD GOD CLEARLY AND WAS ABLE TO OBEY HIM

• SO DID JOSHUA, ELIJAH, ELISHA, EZEKIEL, DANIEL AND ALL THOSE PROPHETS

• WHEN YOU HEAR FROM GOD, HIS VOICE BECOMES AN IRRESISTEBLE STRONGHOLD OF FAITH

• GOD TOLD MOSES EXODUS 7:1 “I HAVE MADE YOU A GOD TO PHAROAH”

• HE DID NOT GO TO PHAROAH AS A MAN BUT AS A GOD

EXODUS 14:15TELL THE PEOPLE TO MOVE FORWARD EVEN AT THE RED SEA, THEY COULD NOT REBEL AND TURN BACK

“GO FORWARD INTO THE SEA”.ONLY GOD CAN SAY THAT AND YOU WILL OBEY HIM

• THE BIBLE SAYS “THE SEA SAW GOD  AND FLEDPSALM 114:6-9

• THE VOICE OF GOD IS THE CURE TO ALL EVIL STRONGHOLDS, IF YOU CAN HEAR HIM YOUR EVIL, SATANIC STRONGHOLD  WILL SIMPLY BREAK FOREVER

IT WILL  GIVE WAY TO THE  STRONGHOLD OF FAITH

• YOU WILL  SURELY  BE RELEASED INTO THE STRONGHOLD OF FAITH BY GOD’S MAJESTIC VOICE

• GOD TOLD ABRAHAM TO CIRCUMCISE HIMSELF AND EVERY MALE IN HIS HOUSE

• WITHOUT ANY FEAR HE TOOK A STONE AND CIRCUMCISED HIMSELF FIRST

• WHY? THE VOICE OF GOD CANNOT BE RESISTED

• HOW ABOUT THE INSTRUCTION TO TAKE HIS SON ISAAC

• HE WOKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING AND BEGAN TO GO

• SO WHEN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE FAITH OF ABRAHAM, WE MUST UNDERSTAND THE REST OF IT

• THE VOICE OF GOD IS THE STRONGHOLD OF ABRAHAM’S FAITH

• THE VOICE OF GOD IS THE STRONGHOLD OF MOSES FAITH

• IT IS THE STRONGHOLD OF JEREMIAH’S AND JOSHUA’S FAITH

• WHAT SHALL WE SAY ABOUT ISAIAH’S AND JOSHUA?

• HOW ABOUT THE LORD JESUS  AND THE APOSTLES OF OLD? PETER WAS TOLD “RISE UP AND KILL AND EAT”

• HE TRIED TO ARGUE BUT THE LORD SPOKE TO HIM AGAIN

• THEN HE WENT TO CORNELIUS IN ACTS 10 AND STARTED HIS MINISTRY TO THE GENTILES

• GOD SPOKE DIRECTLY TO PETER  AND HE OBEYED OTHERWISE YOU AND I WOULD STILL BE WORSHIPPING ALL KINDS OF THINGS

• THE VOICE OF GOD WAS THE STRONGHOLD  OF HIS FAITH AND MINISTRY

I TOLD YOU A WHILE AGO, THAT “RISE AND GO AND START CHURCHES FOR ME IN NAMIBIA “IS NOT WRITTEN DIRECTLY ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE

• HOW TO OPERATE FINANCES FOR THE MINISTY IS NOT WRITTEN DIRECTLY ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE

• GOD’S VOICE AND ABSOLUTE OBEDIENCE TO IT IS MY STRONGHOLD

• MAKE THAT YOUR DECISION AND YOU WILL BE VERY FREE TO SERVE GOD AND RECEIVE ANSWERS FROM HIM

THIS MONTH AS WE FASTED AND PRAYED THE LORD SPOKE TO US ABOUT PULLING DOWN THE STRONGHOLD OF SPIRITUAL DEAFNESS AND MADNESS AND BLINDNESS

• IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT GOD STILL SPEAKS TODAY, I AM THE LORD I CHANGE NOT

• THE APOSTLES SAID IN ACTS 4:20

“WE CANNOT BUT SPEAK THOSE THINGS WE HAVE HEARD AND SEEN”

EVEN IN SPITE OF PERSECUTIONS, MOCKERY, NAME CALLINGS, PRISON AND DEATH

“ WE CANNOT BUT SPEAK THOSE THINGS WE HAVE HEARD AND SEEN”

OUR FAITH IS WEAK TODAY BECAUSE OF THE STRONGHOLD OF DEAFNESS, BLINDNESS, DUMBNESS, AND WORLDLINESS (SPIRITUAL MADNESS)

• YOU ALLOW THE STRONGHOLD OF THE VOICE OF THE WORLD TO DROWN GOD’S VOICE

• THE SECRET OF ALL ANSWERED PRAYERS IS YOUR STRONGHOLD OF FAITH WHICH COMES FROM HEARING FROM GOD DIRECTLY

• YOUR ACCESS TO THAT STRONGHOLD OF FAITH IS YOUR ACCESS TO THE POWERFUL VOICE OF GOD

• WITHOUT THE RHEMA OF GOD’S WORD YOUR FAITH IN GOD WILL BE SHAKY IF IT IS NOT ROOTED IN GOD’S VOICE

YOUR MIRACLES WILL ALSO BE SHAKY.ANSWER TO PRAYERS WILL BE VERY SHAKY.ALL BECAUSE YOUHAVE A VERY SHAKY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

HOW TO HEAR  GOD’S VOICE

• GOD SPEAKS TO US THROUGH MANY CHANNELS

  • GOD SPEAKS DIRECTLY  TO HIS PEOPLE
  • LIKE TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC OR JACOB, GOD TOLD ISAAC TO DWELL IN EGYPT AND HE WOULD BLESS HIM,
  • GOD CHANGED THE NAME OF JACOB TO ISRAEL AND TOLD HIM THAT HE HAD PREVAILED WITH GOD
  • FROM ONE MAN HE BECAME A NATION BECAUSE HE HEARD FROM GOD DIRECTLY
  • IF YOU WANT YOUR BREAK THROUGH ,IF YOU WANT YOUR DESTINY,
  • IF YOU WANT YOUR PRAYER ANSWERED YOU MUST ACCESS GOD’S VOICE DIRECTLY
  • GOD  STILL SPEAKS TO PEOPLE DIRECTLY
  • MOSES GOT LED  MILLION PEOPLE IN THE WILDERNESS BY LISTENING TO GOD AT EVRY STAGE
  • IF YOU CAN HEAR FROM HEAVEN THE EARTH  WILL HEAR AND  YIELD ITS INCREASE TO YOU
  • GOD SPEAKS TO US THROUGH HIS WORD,

BEHIND EVERY VERSE OF SCRIPTURE IS GOD’S VOICE

  • EVERY VERSE OF SCRIPTURE HAS GOD’S VOICE BEHIND IT
  • I TOLD YOU THIS ENTIRE CLMI WAS BASED ON MARK 16:14-20 AND 2 TIMOTHY 1:5
  • MATHEW 6:33  SAYS “SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND ALL THAT GOD DEMANDS AND EVERYTHING THAT OTHERS ARE DYING TO GET WILL BE ADDED TO YOU
  • HEB 10:5-7 JESUS  SAID HE FOUND WHAT WAS WRITTEN, ABOUT HIS DESTINY IN THE VOLUME OF THE BOOK.
  • HE USED TO TELL THE PHARISEES TO SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES ABOUT HIM
  • WHEN YOU STUDY THE BIBLE YOU WILL SEE WHAT IS WRITTEN ABOUT YOU AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL DELIVER IT TO YOU
  • THE VOICE OF THE LORD IS UPON THE SCRIPTURES
  • HE THUNDERS FROM THE SCRIPTURES TO SET US FREE
  • HE  ALSO SPEAKS TO US THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT JOHN 16:12-13
  • FOR WHEN HE COMES , HE SHALL GUIDE US INTO ALL TRUTH
  • HE SHALL NOT SPEAK OF
  • REVELATION 2:7 SAYS LET HIM THAT HAVE AN EAR HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING
  • THE HOLY S[IRIT  RECEIVES INFORMATIO  FROM THE LORD AND RELEASES IT TO US
  • THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS STILL SPEAKING TO US
  • THESE ARE THE 3 MAIN AREAS THAT GOD USES TO SPEAK TO US
  • DIRECTLY ,THROUGH HIS WORD,THROUGH HIS SPIRIT
  • NOW GOD IS ALWAYS SPEAKING, 24/7 BUT HOW ARE WE GOING TO HEAR HIM AND ENTER INTO THAT STRONGHOLD OF FAITH?
  • YOU HAVE TO TUNE IN

1. TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE YOU MUST BE SPIRITUAL 1 COR. 2:14

  • ONLY THE SPIRITUAL MAN CAN ACCESS GOD’S VOICE.TO BE SPIRITUAL YOU MUST REALLY BE MADITATING ON HIS WORD AND PRAYERFUL
  • YOU NEED TO AVOID THE VOICE OF ERROR THAT IS LEADING MANY PEOPLE TODAY

JOHN SAYS IN REVELATION 1:10 “I WAS IN THE SPIRIT AND I HEARD”

  • WHEN A SHEEP  BLEATS YOU THINK A SHEEP IS  BLEATINGS BUT TO ANOTHER SHEEP HE IS SPEAKING
  • YOU HAVE TO BE IN THE SPIRIT TO HEAR GOD SPEAK
  • THIS IS WHERE OUR PROBLEM IS.WE ARE STRUGGLING WITH THE  STRONGHOLD OF CARNALITY
  • A CARNAL MAN CANNOT HEAR GOD
  • YOU WANT THE STRONGHOLD OF FAITH?
  • YOU MUST PULL DOWN EVERY STRONGHOLD OF CARNALITY.ACTUALLY CARNALITY WILL BLOCK YOUR EARS
  • YOU MUST MEDITATE ON  THE WORD OF GOD AND PRAY OFTEN IN TONGUES
  • ITS TIME WE BECAME SPIRITUAL, THE BODY OF CHRIST  IS GROWING INCREASINGLY CARNAL
  • PEOPLE ARE NO LONGER COMMITTED TO GOD’S VOICE
  • NO MORE TIME FOR , BIBLE STUDIES, FASTING AND PRAYING
  • NO MORE TIME FOR  COMING REGULARLY TO CHURCH ANYMORE
  • SO THEY CAN’T REALLY HEAR HIM
  • WE MUST BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED AND HAVE LIFE AND PEACE
  • TO BE CARNALLY  MINDED IS DEATH
  • IT IS ONE THING TO BE SAVED, ITS ANOTHER THING TO HAVE THE MIND OF GOD
  • YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE HEARING   OF GOD’S VOICE AND FEARING HIM ENOUGH TO OBEY HIM TOTALLY
  • IS FUNDAMENTAL IF YOU MUST FULFILL YOUR DESTINY AND HAVE ALL YOUR PRAYERS ANSWERED

2. IT IS ONE THING TO BE SPIRITUAL AND IT IS ANOTHER THING TO BE SENSITIVE TO THE DICTATES OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN YOUR DAILY WALK

  • THERE ARE MANY MANY PEOPLE IN THE BODY OF CHRIST  WHO ARE ONLY SPIRITUAL IN THE CHURCH
  • THEY ARE ONLY  SPIRITUAL WHEN IT’S TIME COME TO CHURCH,
  • THEY ARE  ONLY SPIRITUAL WHEN IT’S TIME TO PRAY, SING OR DANCE AND  STUDY THE WORD IN THE CHURCH,
  • ONCE THEY LEAVE THE CHURCH  THEY START TO WALK IN THE FLESH, INSTEAD OF WALKING IN THE SPIRIT
  • WALKING IN THE SPIRIT MEANS WALKING ACCORDING TO WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS SAID TO YOU
  • AND THAT  MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE BECAUSE GOD CAN SPEAK ANYWHERE, ANY PLACE AT ANY TIME
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN SPEAK IN THE TOILET, IN THE BATHROOM, DRIVING A CAR, AT YOUR DESK
  • IT IS TIME TO UNDERSTAND THAT SPIRITUAL THINGS ONLY ANSWERS TO SPIRITUAL PEOPLE
  • TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE AND DEVELOP A STRONG HOLD OF FAITH WE MUST LOVE TO PRAISE GOD AS A LIFE STYLE

ISAIAH 30:29-31   SAYS YOU SHALL HAVE A SONG AND THE VOICE OF GOD WILL COME TO YOU

  • PEOPLE ARE SO DEPRESSED THESE DAYS THAT THERE IS NO WAY THEY CAN HEAR FROM GOD
  • WITHOUT YOU CONSTANTLY  HAVING  A SONG ,THER WILL BE  NO VOICE FROM HEAVEN ON WHICH TO BUILD YOUR STRONGHOLD OF FAITH 2 KINGS 3:15
  • PHIL 4:4 SAYS  REJOICE IN THE LORD ,”REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAY: AND AGAIN I SAY, REJOICE.”
  • WITHOUT REJOICING IN THE LORD YOU REMAIN A VICTIM
  • YOU KNOW ITS AMAZING WHEN PEOPLE ACCUSE ME OF NOT ENCOURAGING THEM
  • WHO IS ENCOURAGING ME YOU MAY ASK?
  • NOBODY , RATHER MANY  SEEK TO DISCOURAGE ME WITH IN MANY WAYS
  • BUT CHURCH AM ALWAYS IN GOD’S PRESENCE ANYWHERE AND ANY PLACE
  • ALWAYS SINGING AND LISTENING TO HIM
  • YOU HAVE AN ENCOURAGER WITHIN YOU, SING AMEN, AMEN REJOICE, AMEN” YOU WILL BE ENCOURAGED AMEN
  • THE HOLY GHOST IS WITHIN YOU GIVE HIM A SONG OF JOY AND YOU WILL CLEARLY HEAR HIM
  • IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD IS FULLNESS OF JOY
  • THE DEVIL WANTS TO DEPRESS YOU AND ROB YOU OF GOD’S PRESENCE, JOY AND VOICE.HE WANTS TO KEEP YOU IN CAPTIVITY
  • SATAN KNOWS THAT FOR HIM  TO OPPRESS  YOU, HE MUST FIRST SEDUCE YOU TO  BE DEPRESSED
  • I COMMAND THE HOLY GHOST IN YOU TO TEAR DOWN THAT STRONGHOLD OF DEPRESSION IN JESUS NAME BE FREE AND START TO PRAISE AND THANK GOD

4. TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE AND DEVELOP A STRONG HOLD OF FAITH WE MUST  GET INTO A LIFESTYLE OF PRAYER AND FASTING

  • PRAYER SHOULD NOT BE USED AS AN EMERGENCY TOOL , IT MUST BE YOUR LIFESTYLE MATHEW 6:6-8 JESUS SAYS WHEN YOU PRAY NOT IF YOU PRAY
  • PRAYER MUST BE YOUR LIFE PROGRAM
  • MATHEW 6:16 WHEN YE FAST” SO ACCORDING  TO THE TEACHING OF JESUS, PRAYER AND FASTING MUST BE YOUR LIFE STYLE IF YOU WANT THE STRONGHOLD OF FAITH
  • LEARN HOW TO WAIT ON THE LORD,
  • AWAY FROM THE BODY MEANS PRESENCE OF THE LORD

5. TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE AND DEVELOP A STRONG HOLD OF FAITH YOU MUST SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES ON SUBJECT MATTER AND LISTEN TO YOUR MAN OR WOMAN OF GOD

  • GOD SPEAKS TO US THROUGH HIS WORD AND THROUGH HIS SERVANTS HOSEA 12:10
  • GOD IS NOT A RESPECTER OF PERSONS, HE MULTIPLIES VISIONS AND DIRECTIVES THROUGH HIS PROPHETS AND APOSTLES
  • PRAYING IN TONGUES FOR PERSONAL EDIFICATION IS DIFFERENT FROM PRAYING IN TONGUES FOR PROPHECY AND INTERPRETATION FOR THE EDIFICATION OF THE CHURCH
  • IF YOU WANT TO RECEIVE A WORD OF PROPHECY FOR SOMEONE OR SOMETHING YOU CAN EITHER WORSHIP ELABORATELY OR PRAY IN TONGUES
  • AND THEN  APPLY THE GIFT OF INTERPRETATION , ONE IS PERSONAL EDIFICATION ,THE OTHER IS FOR THE PUBLIC
  • EVERYONE CAN SPEAK IN TONGUES FOR PERSONAL EDIFICATION BUT NOT EVERYONE CAN REALLY PROPHESY TO OTHERS, ALSO NOT ALL HAVE THE OFFICE OF THE PROPHET

6 FINALLY  TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE AND DEVELOP A STRONG HOLD OF FAITH YOU MUST ALSO BE A GIVER

  • NO MAN CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS YOU ARE GIVING AS A COVENANT CHILD NOT AS A SPONSOR .GIVE SO YOU CAN FULFILL YOUR PART OF THE COVENANT
  • THE SILVER IS HIS  AND SO IS THE GOLD
  • GIVING DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY RESULT IN PROSPERITY AND ANSWERED PRAYER
  • YOU HAVE TO BE SPIRITUAL  ENOUGH TO FULFILL ALL THE OTHER CONDITIONS  TO BE PROSPEROUS JOB 22:21-26
  • Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart. If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.  For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God. Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows. Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.
  • GOD IS NOT INTERESTED IN YOUR DONATIONS DONATION IS FOR THE POOR NOT FOR GOD
  • YOUR GIVING IS A SPIRITUAL TRANSACTION AND WHEN IT IS ACCEPTABLE IT WILL BE OBVIOUS JOB 22:23-24 : If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.
  • CHURCH IS NOT A BANK WHERE ANYTHING IS ACCEPTABLE YOU MUST ALSO  GIVE CORRECTLY FOR YOUR OFFERING TO BE
  • MANY GIVERS ARE FRUSTRATED WHY?THEY GIVE OUTSIDE GOD’S WILL, HE SAYS YOU SHALL TAKE ININQUITY FAR FROM YOU
  • YOU CAN,T BE A CHEAT, A BORROWER THAT DOES NOT PAY BACK, A ROBBER OR A DRUG DEALER DESTROYING DESTINIES AND SAY YOU ARE GIVING TO GOD
  • YOU HATE YOUR NEIGHBOUR, PASTOR OR FRIEND AND YOU GIVE FULL OF GOSSIP,REBELLION,DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD’S VOICE,PRIDEAND UNBELIEF OR FEAR AND SORROW OF HEART
  • WHAT DID JESUS SAY ABOUT GIVIMG AND OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS?
  • HE SAYS DON’T DROP YOUR OFFERING AT THE ALTAR IF YOU KNOW SOMEBODY HAS ANYTHING AGAINST YOU
  • MAL 3:1-5 HE SAYS HE WILL PURIFY US AND OUR OFFERINGS WILL BE ACCEPTABLE
  • WE NEED TO HAVE A SPIRITUAL ROOT
  • PAUL SAYS I COMMEND YOU TO GOD AND THE WORD OF HIS GRACE YOU  WHICH IS ABLE TO BUILD YOU UP AND GIVE AN INHERITANCE AMONG THEM THAT ARE SANCTIFIED ACTS 20:32
  • SO IF YOU WANT  CONSTANT ANSWERED PRAYERS
  • IF YOU WANT YOUR INHERITANCE IN CHRIST YOU MUST BE COMMITTED TO ENTIRE SANCTIFICATION , SPIRIT , SOUL AND BODY
  • WHAT IS SANCTIFICATION AS A LIFE STYLE?
  • IT MEANS STRIVING TO COMPLETELY  PLEASE GOD ALL THE TIME AND WALKING ACCORDING TO HIS DIRECTIONS AND VOICE
  • MAKING HIS VOICE THE STRONGHOLD OF YOUR FAITH
  • WE NEED TO WAKE UP AND BE HIS END TIME PROPEROUS AND POWERFUL  CHURCH
  • BECAUSE GOD IS GETTING READY TO PROSPER US IN A DANGEROUS WAY
  • WE ARE IN THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE CHURCH HAG. 2:9
  • MAL 3:17  GOD WANTS TO UNLEASE HIS TREASURES ON US BUT HE WANTS TO FIRST

CLEAN  US UP SO THAT OUR SACRIFICES CAN BE ACCEPTABLE TO GOD

  • BEGINNING FROM NOW YOUR OFFERING AND SACRIFICES WILL BE ACCEPTABLE TO GOD  IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME
  • LISTENING TO HIS VOICE ONLY WILL BECOME YOUR STRONGHOLD IN JESUS NAME
  • JOBL 22:21-26
  • SOME STRANGE FAVOURS WILL BEGIN TO COME YOUR WAY
  • JUST GET EXCITED AND GET COMMITTED TO GOD AND HIS WILL
  • THIS IS YOUR HOUR, VERY SOON WE SHALL KNOW WHO IS SERVING GOD AND WHO IS NOT

– LIFT UP YOUR HANDS TO LEAVE

– FATHER THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOICE, THANK YOU FOR THE VOICE

– I KNOW MY SHEEP AND THEY KNOW MY VOICE

FINALLY IT’S IMPORTANT TO BE TRULY SAVED; ONLY THE TRUE CHILD OF GOD WILL HEAR OUR VOICE AND BUILD A STRONGHOLD OF FAITH IN IT.

  • SALVATION IS REAL. YOU MUST BE TRULY  BORN AGAIN
  • ONLY THE TRULY SAVED CAN HEAR THE MASTER’S VOICE AND OBEY
  • JOHN 10:14: I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
  • JOHN 10:27 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me”
  • GOING TO CHURCH IS DIFFERENT FROM BEING IN CHRIST.
  • FAITH HAS THE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR PRAYERS
  • FAITH HAS THE KEY TO EVERY DOOR YOU WANT TO OPEN
  • FAITH HAS THE KEY TO THE HEALING OF EVERY DISEASE IN LIFE
  • FAITH HAS THE VICTORY TO EVERY CHALLENGE
  • AS FAR AS GOD IS CONCERNED , IT IS TO EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS FAITH
  • THE STRONGHOLD OF FAITH IS DEVELOPPED BY HEARING  GOD’S VOICE
  • THE STRONGHOLD OF FAITH IS DEVELOPPED BY TOTALLY SUBMITTING TO THAT VOICE IN ABSOLUTE OBEDIENCE
  • YOU CAN’T HEAR HIM AND DOUBT HIM,OR REMAIN THE SAME
  • YOU CAN’T HEAR HIM AND NOT GET RESULTS OR ANSWERS TO PRAYERS
  • YOU CAN SEE GOD MOVE TO BLESS YOU  IN STRANGE WAYS IF YOU CHOOSE TOSEEK AND OBEY HIS VOICE
  • THESE ARE STRANGE DAYS OF THE CHURCH, WE NEED TO HEAR AND SEE GOD
  • THINGS NEVER HEARD OF ARE HAPPENING ISAIAH 64:4
  • WE MUST BE IN THE SPIRIT AND WALK WITH HIM
  • HIS VOICE WILL PUT YOU ON TOP AMONG THOSE WHO SAY THEY HAVE FAITH
  • HIS PRESENCE WILL ALWAYS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
  • GOD IS REAL AND GOD IS HERE WHATEVER HE SAYS IS WHAT HE WILL DO
  • HE IS NOT A JOKER OR A LIAR-HE SAYS WHAT HE MEANS AND MEANS WHAT HE SAYS
  • FINAL PRAYERS LET THE STRONGHOLD OF BLOCKAGE TO GOD’S VOICE BE DESTROYED FOREVER IN JESUS NAME
  • AS  YOU READ HIS WORD MAY HIS VOICE THUNDER TO US IN JESUS NAME
  • MAY HE CONTINUE TO DIRECT YOUR STEPS ALL YOUR LIVES IN JESUS NAME
  • MAY YOU OPERATE EFFORTLESSLY IN PEACE AND PROSPERITY IN JESUS NAME
  • MAY  ALL YOUR STRUGGLES BE OVER IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME
  • MAY HIS BLESSINGS OVERFLOW AS YOU HEAR HIS VOICE IN JESUS NAME
