Overweight Christians

Overweight Christians

 

I'm so tired of constantly hearing about how 'the devil' is doing this or that or attacking you this way or that way.

It's as if the devil is a school yard bully who constantly is shaking some Christians down for lunch money on a daily basis.

 

This ought not be so!

 

I'm not looking for the person who wakes up and immediately begins to bemoan the calamity the devil has planned for them. 

I'm interested in finding a fire baptized believer who when the moment their eyes pop open in the morning and feet hit the ground, every devil shrieks with anxiety. 

 

You're not called to perpetually have your spiritual lunch money stolen.  In fact you're called to be the one who is stealing the devil's lunch money and eating his sandwich. 

 

James 4:7 thunders, "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."

 

The word in this instance for resist does not mean to passively resist. It does not mean you're supposed to be the only one receiving blows. It does not mean to just hold on and if you will endure, eventually the devil will give up and move on. 

 

The word for resist here means to violently assault. To oppose in the same manner a Greek wrestler or Roman soldier would go to battle.

Actually it has another meaning as well..

It means to outweigh!

 

It is always dangerous to go up against a fighter that outweighs you. 

 

In boxing and wrestling, fighters are routinely weighed before a bout to ensure that the heavier warrior does not have an unfair advantage. To be hit with the full force and strength of the much heavier fighter can have devastating effects.

 

It's good to be overweight!

 

In fact you outweigh the devil!

 

Do you not realize that "Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world".

Do you not realize that if you are filled with the Holy Spirit you have a distinct fighting advantage!

 

It's time to get off your rear ends and put your foot on the neck of the devil.

You can't loose! You have all the weight of heaven on your side!

 

It's time to get off that spiritual vegan diet and put on some weight!

You born for the fight and destined for victory!

You can't bankrupt Heaven

 "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" Luke11:13

 

The power of God had fallen and people were strewn all over the place. Many had just been delivered from devils of addiction and now laid incapacitated under the power of the Holy Spirit.

A steady stream of hungry people continued to come one after the other to the altar as God met needs with His supply.

The sick were healed, the bound were set free and people were being powerfully baptized in the Holy Ghost as they quaked under His mighty power.

 

The glory of God was so thick and we were truly under an open heaven.

I turned around to pray for the next individual that had come to the altar and was face to face with a gentlemen who had the look of desperation on his face.

"What can The Lord do for you?" I asked him..

He responded to me and announced that he was afraid to seem selfish but that He wanted more of God.

He said "There just has to be more...I want more"

"You don't think that's selfish of me to ask do you?"

I smiled at the gentleman, looked him in the eye and said..

"Sir you won't bankrupt heaven, there's plenty to go around"

"Are you ready?"I asked

 

He nodded 'Yes'

 

"Well receive it then!"

 

And in an instant...as soon as my hand made contact with his head, he was overwhelmed by the glory of God!

This gentleman suddenly found himself out on his back,speaking in an unknown tongue as he had been instantly and  powerfully baptized in the Holy Spirit!

 

Soon after, someone walked over to me and said..

"Do you know who that man is?"

 

"Which man?"

 

"The older gentleman over there laid out under the power of God, the one speaking in tongues.."

 

"No who is it" I asked

 

"It's the Methodist preacher from down the road!!" He responded

 

That night God filled a hungry Methodist Pastor with the Holy Ghost! It was so glorious!

 

This gentleman wasn't even sure what he was asking for that night.

All he knew, was that he wanted 'more' and church as usual was no longer going to satisfy his hunger.

 

There was indeed something more and he was not going to be refused.

 

God always satisfies the heart that is hungry for more of Him.

 

Don't listen to the lies of the religious devils that use words like 'good enough' or that tell you it's selfish to want more of God.

 

Press in!

Be filled with the Holy Spirit!

Let the glory of God overwhelm you as you refuse to accept the status quo of mundane living.

The Malachi Connection

 

 **The Malachi Season**

"So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.” 

“So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,”

John 20:4-6 

It was here that upon hearing news of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, both Peter and John frantically raced to see for themselves. 

However there is another story within the story. 

It was John the younger of the two that outraced Peter to the tomb. But upon reaching the tomb he became paralyzed-unsure what to do, so he just stood there. 

As Peter arrived to the entrance of the tomb he promptly stepped inside.

You see it was John typifying the younger generation that out ran the older but when he encountered the shock of the empty tomb he quickly froze.  

It was then that Peter with the experience that only age and relationship can foster said "come on-let's go inside..."

You see we are entering a season when there must be a divine partnering of the younger generation with the older generation.  

Any church that consists of only the older generation may have years of experience and knowledge but they will lack the necessary stamina to advance the kingdom.  

Likewise any church that consists of only the younger generation will thrive  on stamina but falter without the depth of solid doctrine, experience and wisdom.  

It is time that the older embrace the younger and the younger embrace the older.  

It's time to understand that these two generations may not look the same, they may not talk the same but they are called to a partnership of battle. 

It's time that the 'old Saints' stop discounting and begin to teach this younger generation how to tarry, how to fast, how to cast out Devils, how to pray through. 

It is time that the older generation stop rejecting this generation of the millennium and understand that they are called to mentor them. 

For if true revival is going to sweep the land, it will require the strength of the youth to carry the flame. And it will necessitate that the two work together. 

We need the wisdom of the older generation to partner with the unbridled strength of this young generation and take enemy held territory! 

It's time like Malachi declares:

“And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Malachi 4:6

Soldier Up

 

“These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the Lord God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth. Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree: And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.”

‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭12:1-3‬ ‭

 

You are called to possess the land! 

It's time for war- It's time for a revolution!

It's time to root out and destroy, it's time to tear down- 

So that God can build and plant!

It's time to take back everything the devil has stolen! You are Gods enforcement agent and it's time to tell the enemy that he is a squatter and is an illegal! 

It's time to tear down strongholds and invade enemy held territory! It's time to impose the Kingdom! The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force. 

It's time to take our homes back- our churches back-our cities back-our nation back! It's time to take the world back! 

The only thing that will do this is the power of the Holy Ghost! It's time to soldier up! 

It's time to break the power of addiction- It's time to break the power of of sickness-It's time to break the power of sin-It's time to break the power of satan! 

The word of God declares!

"You shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost has come upon you!"  Acts 1:8

Power over all Devils and to cure diseases!

Power over Devils of suicide and depression! 

Power over Devils of homosexuality and racism!

Power over witchcraft! 

Power over religious Devils! 

Power to live right! 

I'm tired of repeat after me 1,2,3- 

I wanna see somebody get saved.  

I don't wanna see somebody make a decision. 

I wanna see somebody get baptized in the Holy Ghost and Fire. 

I'm weary with gospel politics and christian entertainers. Hipsters without holiness and power. 

It's time for war! It's time to burn with the unquenchable fire of the Holy Ghost! 

We are called to utterly destroy every high place-every grove-every altar devoted to wickedness! 

You are not called to warm a pew and sip a cappuccino in the the sanctuary of your church singing kumbaya! 

You are called to war! You are called to victory!
