Watch The Message
“And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with The Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”
Acts 4:31 (KJV)
Pray: In the name of Jesus, I contend for greater capacity and higher levels of spiritual power, as I submit myself to fervent, effectual prayer.
“As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, The Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.”
Acts 13:2 KJV
Pray: Lord, show to me the prophetic blueprint for the next season of my life, in the name of Jesus.
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, Neither have entered into the heart of man, The things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for The Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”
1 Corinthians 2:9-12 (KJV)
Pray: Holy Spirit, show to me the detail of the next season of my life.
“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
1 Timothy 2:3-4 (KJV)
One of the major assignments of The Holy Spirit is to reveal the ways of God to the believer.
There are results that simply cannot happen solely based on the strength of the flesh.
It takes time for the excellency of the spirit life to manifest; be patient.
Sometimes, you just need to keep doing what you’re doing and be consistent. It’s not about starting, even failures start something. But champions are the ones who persist until they finish.
TWO FOUNDATIONS FOR TONIGHT’S SERMON:
1. God is the all-powerful God. (Jeremiah 32:17; Psalm 62:11)
We are made in the image and likeness of God. We are partakers of his divine nature.
Three attributes of God He did not share with man:
1. Omnipresence: It refers to His ability to be present everywhere simultaneously.
2. Omnipotence: The term “potent” denotes power, and God does outsource His power.
3. Omniscience: God possesses complete knowledge of all things.
His omnipresence (everywhere at the same time, alpha and omega) revelation 1:8, his omnipotent (powerful, all-powerful, he does not outsource power) omniscient (all-knowing, he knows all things)
2. God desires for His power to be revealed in the lives of His people (Psalm 107:21, Zephaniah 3:17).
What is Power?
1. Power is the ability to accomplish and influence various outcomes (human, financial, or spiritual).
2. It is the force that compels compliance (obedience).
“Say unto God, How terrible art Thou in Thy works! Through the greatness of Thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.”
Psalm 66:3 (KJV)
You can recognize the presence of power through the manifestation of obedience to the will and dictates of the person exhibiting power.
Every result in life, and in God’s kingdom is attributed to power.
The hallmark of dominion is not knowledge but power. What you know is useless if you cannot use it to alter your destiny.
“To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,”
Ephesians 3:10 (KJV)
The power of God, at work in the life of a believer, operates exclusively through faith.
Power is faith dependent; they work hand in hand. The assignment of faith is to connect you to the power of God, but it is the power of God that actually brings about the desired result.
The assignment of faith is to serve as a conduit for the power of God to flow. Everywhere the power of God is dispensed, there is always a demand for obedience.
Three Levels/ Dimensions Through Which The Power of God is Accessed and Released:
1. The power that has been programmed into laws and principles. (Genesis 8:22).
This dimension of power is based on understanding, not relationship. Adherence to these laws triggers the release of the power of God.
There are many access points of power; however, the believer must be constrained to adhere to the principles revealed in the scriptures. Ignorance of this has led many into engaging in extra-biblical practices.
2. The power that is accessed through intimacy and the pursuit of God. John 14:12
This is the highest dimension of power, that can be accessed by the believer. It comes as a reward for your intimacy with God, which requires more than an understanding of laws and principles.
The power that comes through intimacy is marvelous in its operation.
There are realms of power still untapped that only genuine hunger and passion for God can unlock.
3. The power that is accessed through covenant connections. (Genesis 12:1-5, 13:1-6, 2 Kings 6:8-9, 16-23, Isaiah 8:18)
The expression of the supernatural remains elusive without the presence of sound.
Fire, with its enigmatic nature, has the power to reduce all things to their basic components.
The earth serves as a mystical nexus, connecting us to both physicality and substance.
Water symbolizes abundance and holds significant importance. (Genesis 1:21)
A staggering 70% of our planet comprises water, granting it access to every human body and representing a mysterious force of creation.
For the power of God to be expressed on earth, at least one of these five elements must be involved:
1. Light (John 1:5)
2. Sound (Ezekiel 37:7, Acts 2:1-3, Acts 3:7)
3. Fire (Exodus 3:2)
4. Earth (Jeremiah 22:29)
5. Water (Genesis 1:20-21, 1 John 5:8, Genesis 1:1-11)
- Light – light is a mystery
- Sound – (supernatural can’t find expression until the sound comes)
- Fire -Mysterious element that reduces everything to his until.
- Earth – it’s a universal point of contact. All the food man needs to eat is from the earth.
- Water – Water is associated with abundance Isaiah 32:15
The greatest advantage we have as believers, surpassing the elements of creation, is the power in the name of Jesus.
With the name of Jesus, we have been empowered for victory. With His name, we can command extraordinary possibilities.
Philippians 2:9-11 (KJV)
9. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10. That at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
The components of metaphysical representative objects (charms) are all encompassed within the five elements, and the name of Jesus is above them all and neutralizes their potency.
Access to the name of Jesus and the understanding of its power come by revelation.
Pray: In the name of Jesus, I decree and declare, that every manipulation from the earth, by fire, sound, and water, programmed against my life destiny, is nullified now by a superior manifestation of God’s power! They only work to my advantage!
Our immunity as believers lies in the name of Jesus!
Genuine power resides only through an encounter with the name of Jesus!
I speak over your life, this name you have found as an inheritance, let it begin to work wonders this week for you, in the name of Jesus!
In the name of Jesus, I declare that anyone who tries to use these elemental forces against you, they will see the superior power of Jesus!
By this prayer, every fear you have of men using these elements of creation against you, I declare that it will not work, in the name of Jesus. Where it has been working before now, that power is broken officially, in the name of Jesus!
In the name of Jesus, go and prosper!
Begin to experience favour and rise to the next level of your destiny!
In the name of Jesus, experience restoration!
In the name of Jesus, I call you victorious! You are blessed in the city and in the country!
In the name of Jesus, I declare that elemental forces only work to your advantage!
