WHY SO MUCH DISHONOR?


no-respect-for-disrespect

HONOR IS THE KEY TO ACCESS!

DISHONOR PRODUCES DISCONNECTION!

Ex. 201:12, Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

Regard (treat with honor, due obedience, and courtesy) your father and mother, that your days may be long in the land the Lord your God gives you. AMP

WHEN WE HONOR OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN, WHEN WE HONOR OUR PARENTS, WHEN WE HONOR EACH OTHER THE DOOR OF ACCESS OPENS IN OUR LIVES.

This has always been one of my major drives in life and ministry.  I have found when you genuinely love and honor people that they open their hearts to you and you have access.  You do not just have access to their ears, but people are willing to open their hearts and lives.

Do you want a greater relationship with Jesus?  HONOR HIM

Do you want your spouse to be better?  HONOR THEM

Do you want to live a long life?  HONOR YOUR PARENTS

Do you want a promotion or raise at work?  HONOR YOUR BOSS

Do you want to learn something from an individual that possesses the skills you enjoy?  HONOR THEM

HONOR IS THE KEY TO ACCESS FROM EVERY DIRECTION IN OUR LIVES!

Dishonor flips a switch that disconnects you from your destiny.  Learn to honor and you will step into greatness.  Live in dishonor and you will be surrounded by failure and failures.

POVERTY AND LACK


poverty

Proverbs 11:25, The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.

POVERTY AND LACK ARE INTERTWINED THROUGH SO MANY PEOPLE’S LIVES.

I am not talking money!!  There are many people with money who are saturated with lack in their lives.

Where did poverty and lack come from?

I CAN TELL YOU WHERE IT WAS AND IS NOT……

Poverty and Lack were not in the Garden

– There was no love shortage

– There was no food shortage

– There is no relationship shortage

– There was no health shortage

– There was no wealth shortage

Poverty and Lack are not in heaven

– There will be no more pain, no more suffering, no more death, no more sadness (Rev. 21:4)

–  There is NO LACK in heaven!

– No sickness

– No soulish wounds

– No lack in finances

– No lack of love

– No poverty in relationships

SO WHERE DID POVERTY AND LACK COME FROM?

It was never on this planet until the sin of Adam and Eve.  The first Adam brought death….

BUT

THANK GOD FOR THE SECOND ADAM!!!!

GAL 3:12-13 says that Jesus took the curse of the law so we can participate with the blessing of Abraham!!

THE SECOND ADAM DESTROYED POVERTY AND LACK FOR THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE KINGDOM!!

Sin created poverty & lack!

Jesus the Savior set up FREE FROM LACK as He restored ACCESS to bring heaven to earth.

Remember when the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray?

JESUS TAUGHT THEM TO PRAY THIS WAY:Matt. 6:9-10,  In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.

WHATEVER IS IN HEAVEN MANIFEST IT ON THIS EARTH!

Whatever heaven has you and I have direct access to obtain through prayer in Jesus’ name!

GOD HATES POVERTY AND LACK!!

WE FORGET SO EASILY!

DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE IN 3RD GRADE AND THEY WERE TEACHING MULTIPLICATION?  It was so easy to forget so you had to go back over and over the numbers to get them to stick in your head.  It was important that you studied them because the test was coming and you had to pass.

ISN’T IT CRAZY THAT WE CAN HEAR A TRUTH, A POWERFUL WORD FROM GOD AND YET SO SIMPLY FORGET THE TRUTH AND GO BACK TO WHAT WE USE TO DO?

I was praying this morning for a need that I have and was thinking about how much money I have and how tight it would be if I bought it.  The Holy Spirit reminded me that if you own your money when it is gone, it is gone, but that if we are just stewards of Father’s wealth then we have access.  I preached that a few months ago and it was one of those lightbulb moments, yet a few months later I was thinking the old way all over again.

DUH!!

This is where we must like in 3rd grade take a TRUTH of the WORD and drive it into not just our memory, but our muscle memory.  This means that when the situation comes you have so integrated this TRUTH in your life that without thinking you automatically speak and pray that TRUTH OF THE WORD!

I encourage you, just like I have to do myself, go back and remind yourself of those life transforming TRUTHS of the WORD that are mandatory to success in the Kingdom.

STUDY THAT TRUTH UNTIL IT BECOMES PART OF YOUR MUSCLE MEMORY IN YOUR SPIRIT.

2 Tim. 2:15, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Pet. 1:12, Therefore, I will always remind you about these things–even though you already know them and are standing firm in the truth you have been taught.

YOUR FIRST DATE….AWKWARD


date

DO YOU REMEMBER THE FIRST DATE?  YOU SAT ACROSS THE TABLE, OR NEXT TO EACH OTHER IN THE CAR AND THOUGHT IN YOUR HEAD, “WHAT AM I GOING TO SAY?”

When you start to learn how to pray……IT IS THE SAME THING!

AWKWARD, because you can pray everything you know in about 2.07 seconds and then……..the awkward silence……ummmmmmmm.

Mark 14:37, Then he returned and found the disciples asleep. He said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour?”

I remember the first time I determined to pray for 1 hour.  I was a new believer and through the blood of Jesus gained access into the Holy of Holies (Heb 4:16-18) to speak to the Father.  The Word told me that in the presence of the Father everything is available in Jesus’ name.  The BLOOD gave me ACCESS.

I like to walk when I pray and within 5 minutes had prayed every prayer I knew and then kind of walked around not sure what to do……..lol!

BUT

Just like you and I built a relationship that started off awkward, the more you spent time with them and the more you talked the quicker time passed.  In fact, some of you used to spend HOURS on the phone talking about NOTHING!!

When you are learning to pray it will be a bit awkward.  

You will pray everything you know in 5 minutes.

BUT

STAY THE COURSE.  DETERMINE TO NOT MOVE UNTIL YOU HAVE SPENT THAT TIME WITH JESUS, EVEN IF YOU HAVE PRAYED EVERYTHING YOU KNOW. 

Over a short period of time you will grow in your relationship and talking to Jesus for an hour will be like nothing!

DO NOT FEEL INTIMIDATED ABOUT PRAYER!

Start your talk with Jesus today.  Start today with 15 minutes of uninterrupted PRAYER (TALK, RELATIONSHIP).

CONDITIONED PRAYER


streets-of-gold-heaven

CONDITIONED PRAYER?

What are you talking about?

I hope you don’t mind me sharing a way that Jesus is stretching me in my prayer life.

I FIND THAT WHEN I PRAY, I PRAY ACCORDING TO THE CONDITIONS THAT I CAN TANGIBLY TOUCH OR COMPREHEND.

We have been conditioned to pray for our needs, wants and desires according to our surroundings and what we have experienced in the past.

THIS LIMITS OUR GOD FROM POURING OUT THE EXCESS.

I have heard people pray, I don’t pray this way but have heard them, “Lord, just give me enough to pay my bills because I don’t want to be greedy.”

WHAT THAT ACTUALLY SAYS IS, “I am greedy because I only want enough for me to survive.”

Sometimes when I pray for things that we need or as a church, or that I need personally, I constrain Jesus and His wealth by praying cheaply and with a survival mindset instead of realizing that our ACCESS ACTUALLY PROVIDES EXCESS.

When we really look at heaven we only see EXCESS!

Our EXPOSURE limits our EXCESS because of our seeing faith.  We see it in the spirit before we even harvest in the natural.  When we pray according to our limited exposure we harness heaven’s excess to our prayer of “just making it by.”

Heaven’s street are ______________ (Rev. 21:21).

Solomon’s yearly wage just in gold was  ____________ (1 Kings 10:14).

WE MUST STRETCH OUR SEEING FAITH TO PRAY IN THE EXCESS SO THAT GOD’S KINGDOM AND OUR HOMES LIVE AS TESTIMONIES OF GREATNESS, NOT SURVIVAL.

Josh 6:2,  But the Lord said to Joshua, “I have given you Jericho, its king, and all its strong warriors.

HOW WOULD YOU PRAY IF YOU TOOK THE CONSTRAINTS OF YOUR CONDITIONING OFF TODAY?

HOW BIG WOULD YOU PRAY?

WHAT WOULD YOU SOW KNOWING YOU WILL REAP THE GREATEST HARVEST TO DATE?

WHY IS EXCESS SEEN AS EVIL?  ONLY THE GREEDY, SELFISH SEE WEALTH AS EVIL!

GIVE ME WHAT’S MINE!


hey-thats-mine

WE HAVE BEEN LEARNING THAT THE KING NEVER INTENDED US TO OWN ANYTHING ONLY TO BE GREAT STEWARDS OF HIS TERRITORY.

Ps. 24:1, The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.

REMEMBER THE EXAMPLE OF THE PRODIGAL SON?

He had it all (just like Adam and Eve)!  FULL ACCESS to all the wealth and benefits of his father, BUT one day he decided that he did not want ACCESS but OWNERSHIP!

How crazy is that?  He had ALL ACCESS and traded it for worry, stress and anxiety.

THIS IS WHAT HE DEMANDED (which is rooted in rebellion)!

Luke 15:11-32

Verse 12, The younger son told his father, ‘I want my share of your estate now before you die.’ So his father agreed to divide his wealth between his sons.

GIVE ME WHAT IS MINE!

He had full access to all of his father’s wealth while he lived with him, but he wanted HIS STUFF!

He got HIS STUFF.  His dad gave him his ownership and the boy went on a party binge.  He spent it all and when he turned all his friends were gone.  He ended up working at a pig farm (the lowest thing for a Jewish boy).

THEN….. HE CAME TO HIMSELF!

Verse 17-18, “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father…

WHAT ARE YOU OWNING?  YOU NEED TO COME TO YOURSELF!

Surrendering your family – HAVE A FAMILY ALTAR!

Surrendering your STUFF – GIVING IT AWAY!

Surrendering those areas of hedonistic passion – GIVING IT UP!

Surrendering your bitterness toward a person – GIVING IT UP!

Surrendering your attitudes – GIVING IT UP!

Surrendering your finances – GIVING IT UP!

Surrendering your TIMEIf you say you have no time for Jesus, church, ministry then YOU OWN YOUR TIME.

GIVE UP OWNERSHIP AND BE FREE IN JESUS!
