Barriers and Breakthroughs

“Faith for financial breakouts”

NAS 2Sam 5:19 Then David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? Wilt Thou give them into my hand?” And the LORD said to David, “Go up, for I will certainly give the Philistines into your hand.” 20 So David came to Baal-perazim, and defeated them there; and he said, “The LORD has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters.” Therefore he named that place Baal-perazim.

AS LONG AS YOU ARE MOVING FORWARD YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE BARRIERS

REASONS WHY PEOPLE DON’T EXPERIENCE BREAKTHROUGHS

THE AVERAGE BELIEVER CANNOT PROVE WHY THEY BELIEVE WHAT THEY BELIEVE.

THE AVERAGE BELIEVER ALLOWS THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES TO ESTABLISH THEIR THEOLOGY

IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH IS FOR YOU BIBLICALLY IT WON’T COME TO YOU!

THERE IS A PUSH THROUGH ASPECT

LIVING DEBT FREE IS POSSIBLE.

GOD’S WILL IS DEBT FREE

Deut 28:12-13 “He will make you the head and not the tail…and bless all the work of your hands…and you will lend and not borrow.”

1. MAKE A QUALITY DECISION

A QUALITY DECISION MEANS THIS IS NO LONGER AN OPTION. NO RETREAT, NO TURNING BACK AND NO ROOM FOR DEBATE.

A QUALITY DECISION PROTECTS YOU FROM COMPROMISING AND HELPS YOU TO STAND IN FAITH LIVING BY THE WORD

2. GET INTO A COVENANT AGREEMENT

TO PURSUE THE DEBT FREE LIFE YOU HAVE TO COME TO A PLACE WHERE YOU SEE GOD AS YOUR SOURCE – NOT PEOPLE.

Matt 18:19 If two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.

Romans 13:8 Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

3. ALLOW THE SPIRIT OF GOD TO LEAD YOU

ANY TIME THERE’S PRESSURE… PRESS TOWARDS PEACE.

THE WISDOM OF GOD AND HIS LEADING IS SUPERNATURAL.

4. OPERATE THE LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING.

TO INCREASE YOUR RECEIVING, YOU HAVE OT GO TO A HIGHER LEVEL OF GIVING.

5. ENTER INTO HIS REST

SPIRITUAL REST IS AN ACTIVE DECISION TO CAST YOUR CARES ON THE LORD.

“The good fight of faith 3”

 

1 Tim 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

 

CONFESSION MEANS; GRK HOMOLOGEO – HOMO – SAME, LEGO,

TO SPEAK THE SAME THING.

 

YOUR FAITH CAN NEVER RISE ABOVE THE LEVEL OF YOUR CONFESSION.

 

REMEMBER THE CENTURION Matt 8:5-10 

 

FAITH IS ALWAYS THE IGNITER

 

Romans 4:16 For this reason it is by faith, in order that it may be in accordance with grace, so that the promise will be guaranteed to all the descendants, not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, 17 (as it is written, “A father of many nations have I made you”) in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist.

 

2 Cor 4:13 But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed, therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore we also speak,

 

THERE’S TWO INGREDIENTS INVOLVED IN THE SPIRIT OF FAITH.

  1. BELIEVE – THE ATTITUDE OF FAITH – FACE LIFE W AN ATTITUDE!

Rom 8:31 “WHAT SHALL WE SAY TO THESE…”

GOD’S PRESENCE STAYED WITH THEM… LIGHT & SHADE

THE VISIBLE EVIDENCE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT OF HIS PRESENCE IS SPEAKING IN TONGUES

THE BIG SIGN THAT HE’S COME IS TONGUES & PROPHECY.

LYNN HAMMOND

Tongues is the language of heaven…

it is downloaded in your spirit, and at the reception of the holy spirit, the language is released.

that language will change the world and it will change you.

when used (language), because it is accompanied by the fire of god, the language carries the very essence and the nature of god to any and every situation.

the language of the spirit is very individualized and personalized, marking each person with heavens label.

that label say’s, this is mine to work through.

there’s more revelation to be had in this area…

the more you understand speaking in tongues the more you will give way and yield to it, growing exponentially

speaking in tongues is a sign to arrest, attract and indicate that the presence of god is here.

it is the gateway and the door to the supernatural

the holy spirit will bring the full expression of heaven through believers gathered

DEFINITIONS OF SPEAKING IN OTHER TONGUES;

Strange language

Ecstatic utterance

Diversities of tongues

Speaking in ecstacy

Speaking sacred truths

Inexpressable yearnings

Inarticulate groans

Speaking mysteries

KENNETH E HAGIN

Tongues is a supernatural utterance by the Holy Spirit in languages never learned by the speaker, not understood by the mind of the speaker, not necessarily understood by the hearer. Speaking in tongues has nothing whatever to do with linguistic language. It has nothing to do with your mind and the intellect of man. It is a vocal miracle

Amp Rom 8:26 So too the Holy Spirit [comes to our aid] and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for words. 27 And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is [His intent], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] on behalf of God’s people in accordance with and in harmony with God’s will.

TO GET A GOD RESULT, WE NEED HEAVEN’S LANGUAGE.

Ex. PRAYING FOR YOUR FUTURE… YOU DON’T KNOW EVERYTHING

PRAYING IN TONGUES ALLOWS YOU TO BECOME A VEHICLE FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO SPEAK THROUGH.

TRANSLATIONS Rom 8:26

The Holy Spirit gives us assistance in our weakness;

The Holy Spirit gives help in our infirmity (inability to produce results).

The Holy Spirit takes hold on the other end. He helps because we are so limited.

When we can’t choose the right words in order to pray properly, the Spirit expresses our plea in a way that could never be put into our words.

We also have the Spirit who compensates for our inadequacies.

Jude 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.

1 Cor 14:4 One who speaks in a tongue edifies (builds) himself; but one who prophesies edifies the church.

8 For You have rescued my soul from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling. 9 I shall walk before the Lord In the land of the living.

 

THE SPIRIT OF FAITH ENABLES YOU TO OVERCOME ANY SITUATION OF LIFE.

 

THE SPIRIT OF FAITH CAN’T TELL HOW OLD YOU ARE…

THERE’S TWO INGREDIENTS INVOLVED IN THE SPIRIT OF FAITH.

“Heavens Language”

Eph 5:17-19 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking…

GOD’S PLAN AND WILL FOR EVERY BELIEVER UNDER THE NEW COVENANT IS TO BE FILLED

Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17 These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

SPEAKING IN TONGUES IS THE INITIAL SIGN OR EVIDIENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT’S INDWELLING.

SMITH WIGGLESWORTH – Our only safeguard from dropping back into our natural mind is to be filled and filled again with the Holy Spirit

Matt 3:11 As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

there is a DISTINCT difference between being born of the spirit and being baptiZed in the spirit

Acts 1:8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”

JOHN G LAKE

The greatest experience that a believer can have is the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. It is this experience that enables us and empowers us to live in and live out the fullness of that revelation.

Acts 2:1-11

God made hearts to be fire places

God’s nature is so original… he doesn’t make duplicates of anything.

when we speak in other tongues it is the language of heaven

LYNN HAMMOND WORD

Tongues is the language of heaven…

it is downloaded in your spirit, and at the reception of the holy spirit, the language is released.

that language will change the world and it will change you.

when used (language), because it is accompanied by the fire of god, (ex. forrest fire & wind)

the language carries the very essence and the nature of god to any and every situation.

every word that you speak in tongues is a capsul or a container of the essence and nature of god

the language of the spirit is very individualized and personalized, marking each person with heavens label.

that label say’s this is mine to work through.

Confession Ignites Manifestation Pt 5

“The Good Fight of Faith”

Amp Phil 2:12 Work out (cultivate, carry out to the goal, and fully complete) your own salvation with reverence and awe and trembling.

AMP Philem 1:6 That the participation in and sharing of your faith may produce and promote full recognition and appreciation and understanding and precise knowledge of every good thing that is ours in our identification with Christ Jesus and unto his glory

FAITH IS ALWAYS THE IGNITER

1 Tim 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH HAS A CONFESSION THAT GOES WITH IT

13 I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, 14 that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which He will bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords,

JESUS BEFORE PILOT

John 18:36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” 37 Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

Heb 11:13 All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. 14 For those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a country of their own. 15 And indeed if they had been thinking of that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them.

2 Cor 4:13 But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed, therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore we also speak,

Ps 116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: 11 I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12 What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord.

8 For You have rescued my soul from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling. 9 I shall walk before the Lord In the land of the living.

The spirit of faith enables you to overcome any situation of life.

THERE ARE TWO INGREDIENTS INVOLVED IN THE SPIRIT OF FAITH.

1. BELIEVE – FACE LIFE WITH AN ATTITUDE!

YOU WALK AND TALK DIFFERENT

THE SPIRIT OF FAITH WILL TAKE THE WHINNING OUT OF YOUR VOICE

2. SPEAK – I BELIEVE AND SPEAK

THE LIFE OF DAVID AND PAUL

DAVID HEARS THE GIANT HOLLERING AT GOD’S COVENANT PEOPLE… DAVID STARTS TALKING BACK TO THE GIANT.

WHEN YOU’RE FACING A DIFFICULTY IN LIFE YOU HAVE TO SAY WHAT YOU BELIEVE.

THE ATTITUDE OF FAITH; IS BELIEVING THAT IF GOD IS FOR YOU WHO CAN BE AGAINST YOU…

Rom 8:31 “WHAT SHALL WE SAY TO THESE…”

THE WORD SPOKEN TO YOU MUST BE SPOKEN THROUGH YOU!

Acts 27 Paul is in the 3rd day of a14 day storm – God gives him a word…

He gives a word in storm to use against enemy or your circumstance

Vs 21-26

“Filled with the Spirit Pt 4”

John 14:16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; 17 That is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

Acts 1:8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”

THERE IS A DUAL WORKING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE LIFE OF THE BELIEVER

THERE’S THE NEW BIRTH…

JOHN 4, “The water I give you will be a well of water springing up to everlasting life”

JOHN 7:37 HE SAID, “Out of your inner most being (belly) shall flow rivers of living water”

THOSE ARE 2 SEPARATE EXPERIENCES OF THE SAME SPIRIT.

PERSONAL BENEFIT. (9 FRUIT OF SPIRIT)

AN ENDOWMENT OF POWER for SERVING THE LORD. (9 GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT)

Bro hagin said, “the world needs to be taught to receive jesus, the church needs to be taught to receive the holy Spirit.

THE USE AND BENEFIT OF TONGUES (HEAVENLY LANGUAGE)?

1 Cor 14:1Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.

2 For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries.

PAUL TEACING THE CORINTHIANS ABOUT 9 GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT

1 Cor 12:10 “various kinds of tongues”

DIFFERENT KINDS… DIVERSITIES – DIFFERENT IN PURPOSE AND USE

IN THE 28TH Vs PAUL REFERES TO “VARIOUS TONGUES” AGAIN TALKING ABOUT THE BODY OF CHRIST AND THE DIFFERENT MEMBERS.

28 And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues. 29 All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? all are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of miracles, are they?

30 All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, do they? 31 But earnestly desire the greater gifts.

ONE OF THE VARIOUS KINDS OF TONGUEs IS FOR THE USE IN A PUBLIC ASSEMBLY…

14:26 What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. 27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, it should be by two or at the most three, and each in turn, and one must interpret; 28 But if there is no interpreter, he must keep silent in the church; And let him speak to himself and to God.

THE OTHER VARIATION OF TONGUES IS that ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN BAPTIZED IN THE SPIRIT CAN PRAY IN TONGUES

14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. 15 What is the outcome then? I will pray with the spirit and I will pray with the mind also; I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the mind also.

18 I thank God, I speak in tongues more than you all

19 However, in the church I desire to speak five words with my mind so that I may instruct others also, rather than ten thousand words in a tongue.

1 Cor 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, 13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.

1 Cor 14:4 “One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself” (BUILDS UP)

KNOX “He who speaks in an unknown tongue encourages himself”

BEK “He who speaks in an unknown tongue strengthens his own faith

Web “He who speaks in an unknown tongue receives an uplifting and strengthening influence”

Jude 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God,

One translation say’s; strengthen yourself, fortify yourself, sustain yourself, praying in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brethren, what shall we do?” 38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.”

“Defending your Kingdom”

2 Sam 23:11 Now after him was Shammah the son of Agee a Hararite. And the Philistines were gathered into a troop where there was a plot of ground full of lentils, and the people fled from the Philistines. 12 But he took his stand in the midst of the plot, defended it and struck the Philistines; and the Lord brought about a great victory.

WE MAY NOT HAVE A BEAN PATCH TO DEFEND TO DAY BUT WE DO HAVE A SPIRITUAL KINGDOM ALONG WITH BENEFITS TO DEFEND.

Luke 12:32 Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.

EVERYTHING IN THE KINGDOM INCLUDING THE BENEFITS BELONG TO US. (Ps 103, Ps 68:19)

Amp 1 Cor 2:9 but just as it is written [in Scripture], “Things which the eye has not seen and the ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, who obey Him, and who gratefully recognize the benefits that He has bestowed].”

Luke 17:21 For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst.” (W-IN)

THE ENEMY HAS NO RIGHT TO STEAL WHAT BELONGS TO YOU!

THERE IS A FLOW OF THE KINGDOM

Rom 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A GIFT…

Rom 5:17 For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. (REIGNING INVOLVES KINGDOM ACTIVITY)

RIGHTEOUSNESS IS TO PRODUCE RIGHT LIVING…

WRONG LIVING WILL MAKE YOU SIN CONSCIOUS

RIGHTEOUSNESS MAKES YOU CONSCIOUS OF JESUS VICTORY

THE KINGDOM FLOW IS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND YOU ARE TO DEFEND WHO YOU ARE BY DECLARING WHAT JESUS DID FOR YOU.

THERE IS A BOLDNESS THAT GOES WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS! (Pro 28:1)

PEACE IS SOME OF THE FRUIT OF YOUR INHERITANCE

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

THERE ARE THINGS YOU DO TO MAINTAIN AND WALK IN THE PEACE OF GOD

EVEN WHEN IT COMES TO OTHERS… YOU HAVE A PART

Rom 12:8 If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.

JOY IS THE NATURE OF THE KINGDOM

John 15:11These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.

WE DON’T TURN TO HIM WHEN OUR PLANS DON’T WORK OUT.

JOY COMES FROM BEING A DOER OF THE WORD… DOING WHAT’S RIGHT.

DO IT WITHOUT COMPROMISE AND WITHOUT COMPLAINT.

“Filled with the Spirit Pt 3”

Matt 3:11 As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.

there is a DISTINCT difference between being born of the spirit and being baptised in the spirit

Bro hagin said, “the world needs to be taught to receive jesus, the church needs to be taught to receive the holy Spirit.

Acts 10:44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were listening to the message. 45 All the circumcised believers who came with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also.

46 For they were hearing them speaking with tongues and exalting God. Then Peter answered, 47 “Surely no one can refuse the water for these to be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we did, can he?” 48 And he ordered them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

SPEAKING WITH TONGUES; WHAT IS ITS USE AND BENEFIT?

1 Cor 14:1Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.

2 For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries.

SCRIPTURE IDENTIFIES SPEAKING IN A TONGUE AS SPEAKING IN THE SPIRIT OR WE COULD SAY, “PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT”

1 Cor 12:10 “various kinds of tongues”

DIFFERENT KINDS… DIVERSITIES…DIFFERENT IN PURPOSE AND USE

28 And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues. 29 All are not apostles, are they?
