REJECT REJECTION!


reject

Eph. 3:17-19,  that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

The SEED, the ROOT, and the TREE, should be producing the FRUIT OF LOVE!

When we allow rejection to take root it grows up into an ugly, twisted, mangled tree that produces sour, rotten, or no fruit.

WE MUST REJECT THE ROOT OF REJECTION!

It comes down to worth.  Where do we obtain our worth?

If we are measuring our worth by people then we are going to be rejected and wounded.

Galatians 1:10 – For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

BUT

If we get our worth and value from the TRUTH, then no matter what someone does to us we can remain SOLID and HEALTHY.

Who is sitting in the chief chair of your life?

When we place God where He belongs in our lives and we aim to please Him, our value is generated by being hidden in Christ.

WE ARE WHO FATHER SAYS WE ARE!

WE CAN DO WHAT THE FATHER SAYS WE CAN DO!

No matter what anyone else does to us we are solid in our worth because of who Jesus says we are!

I CHALLENGE YOU TODAY TO LOOK AT YOUR LIFE AND MAKE SURE THAT JESUS IS #1, AND HE IS SEATED IN THE HEAD CHAIR OF YOUR LIFE.

HE IS FAITHFUL, HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU, HE WILL NEVER REJECT YOU, HE WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, HE WILL NEVER ABANDON YOU, HE WILL NEVER THROW YOU AWAY!

Make Jesus #1 today, and everyone else #2.

YOU DESERVE TO BE HEALTHY!


healthy

JESUS DID NOT COME JUST TO GET YOU TO HEAVEN!  HE CAME THAT YOU WOULD BE A WHOLE PERSON IN YOUR SPIRIT, SOUL, AND BODY!

This is what He paid for on the cross of Calvary.

This is your COVENANT right according to the Constitution called the Word of God.

YOU CAN BE 100% SAVED AND GOING TO HEAVEN AND YOUR SOUL CAN STILL BE RIDDLED WITH HOLES, AND WOUNDS.

Jesus came to heal your spirit, soul (intellect, emotions, and will), and body.

YOU DESERVE TO BE WHOLE BECAUSE JESUS ALREADY PAID FOR IT AND SEALED IT WITH HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION.

Whether you were wounded through rejection, abandonment, divorce, death, gossip, abuse, disappointments, you can know that Jesus WILL HEAL YOU IF YOU ASK HIM TO.

James 1:21, So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls.

Get rid of sin – sin in our lives is the seed that creates and enhances wounds.

The Word is seed (Matt 13).  This is why the enemy strives to keep you so busy that you cannot come to church, Rock Solid Faith, Bible studies, daily reading of the Word……

  • Satan knows the supernatural power of the Word of God.
  • The more you are in the Word the more SEED you sow into your soul, and the harvest is always HEALTH.
  • Too simple………IT IS PRINCIPLE
  1. SEED = HARVEST
  2. WORD = HEALTH IN YOUR SOUL
  1. Ps. 107:20, He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
  2. Ps. 147:3, He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
  3. Luke 4:18, The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me
    To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

TODAY ASK JESUS TO HEAL YOUR SOUL AND MAKE YOU WHOLE.  YOU DESERVE TO BE HEALED IN YOUR MIND AND EMOTIONS TODAY.

DIS……COURAGE


discouraged

NEVER ALLOW THE DIS……. TO CONNECT WITH YOUR COURAGE!

Every time you have a call or a destiny (all of us) we are going to have to have COURAGE!

In fact, it was a COMMAND.

Josh 1:9, Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

WHAT IS COURAGE? Mental or moral strength, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.

The reason we must have courage is because of the challenges that come our way as we are fulfilling the call and destiny in our lives.  DIFFICULT TIMES!

WHAT IS THE DIS…..  It means to take away, loss of, distance, cease, remove.

SO WHAT IS DISCOURAGEMENT?

It is when your strength and perseverance have been TAKEN AWAY, REMOVED, LOST.

It is the process of losing HOPE.

There are so many different reasons people allow their courage to be extracted, and each experience is very real.

    1. People
    2. Money
    3. Religious structure / denominationalism
    4. Staff issues
    5. Lack of growth
    6. Judas kisses
    7. Family issues
    8. Health issues
    9. Death
    10. Gossip and rumors
    11. False accusations
    12. Abandonment
    13. Rejection

HOW DO I GET OUT OF THE DIS AND GET BACK MY COURAGE?

SPEAK TO YOURSELF / TAKE AUTHORITY OVER YOUR THOUGHTS

Ps. 42:5, Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

1 Sam. 30:6, but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.

FIND YOUR FAITH FRIENDS

Mark 5:40 – Jesus chose specific people to be with Him when He was raising the young girl from the dead.

GET A PLAN

Find someone to do some strategic planning within your life to move forward and not in reverse.

THERE ARE TWO GEARS TAKEN OUT OF MY TRANSMISSION….. REVERSE AND NEUTRAL!

GET SOME FRESH COURAGE TODAY!

A Knife Is Sticking Out Of My Heart!


broken-hearted

It does not matter if you are a muscle-bound man, or a petite little woman, we all have feelings, and they can get wounded.

I have watched men that are beasts break down and cry like little boys when their hearts have been broken.  I have also watched some petite little barbie girls not break down but turn the other direction, and that is bitter.

We are all going to have hurts in our lives.

It was never the plan of God!  God did not create us to have to experience rejection, betrayal, emotional wounds, but because of the fall of man our innocence was lost and sin entered in.  Since the fall of man our hearts can be harshly wounded.

The great part is that God has a plan!  He does not want us crushed by rejection, or demolished because of betrayal or loss, He wants us HEALED, WHOLE, HEALTHY, and Father has provided that for us through Jesus.

Is. 53:4-5,  Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.

Jesus paid the price for your broken heart to be healed on the cross.  The doctors cannot do surgery, the drugs will only mask and cover, but Jesus can heal you so it does not hurt again!

Ps. 34:18, The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

Ps. 147:3, He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.

Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, Toset at liberty those who are oppressed;

OK!  THIS IS WHAT WE DO NEXT!

1) Tell Jesus what you are feeling inside.  It is ok to cry, He is there listening and waiting to start the process of healing you.  You must be honest!

2) Ask Him to start the healing process in your heart.

3) Say this out loud, “Jesus, I receive your healing in my heart, today I choose to be healed and not wounded.”

4) Get ready, it has begun, you will start to see a change already because you have invited the HEALER TO START HIS LOVING WORK IN YOUR LIFE!

YOU WANT WHAT?


Authentic-love

WE ARE ALL AFTER WHAT?

LOVE!

Every single person on this planet has a void in their life that they are striving to fill.  That VOID is TRUE LOVE!

Some will run to a man or a woman, some will run to money, some will run to fame and fashion BUT  they will always come up short because TRUE LOVE cannot be conjured by a man that is flawed.

ONLY JESUS!

Man’s love is temporary.  Man’s love is reciprocated when first given.  Man’s love is not unconditional.  Man’s love is FLAWED!

WHY BASE YOUR EXISTENCE ON THE TEMPORARY WHEN YOU CAN HAVE THE AUTHENTIC, GENUINE, BONA FIDE, STUPENDOUS, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST?

Stop settling for the counterfeit when you can have the authentic!

Eph 3:17-19, Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

REJECTION OF YOUR LOVE IS WOUNDING, BUT JESUS WILL NEVER REJECT OR WITHHOLD HIS LOVE FROM YOU!

Rom. 8:35-39, Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. 38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

YOU’RE NOT POPULAR ANYMORE!


tolerance

PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU WHEN YOU ARE LIKE THEM AND STAND FOR NOTHING!

We all want to be popular and accepted by the people around us, but that ends quickly for most when they take a different stand than what is popular.  

This is a new experience for most Christians in America and the simple fact is….it will be escalating.

Most American Christians live the same type of lifestyle the world does, so the world accepts and embraces them, but there is a great divide when you give your life to Christ.  As Princes & Princesses we are no longer of this world, we are not the same, we do not live like the world.

THIS GENERATION WILL REJECT AND HAVE HATRED TOWARD YOU!

THIS IS NORMAL not ABNORMAL!

John 15:20a, Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.

2 Tim. 3:12, Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

WHEN YOU FINALLY TAKE A STAND FOR THE WORD AND YOUR SAVIOR, YOU WILL BE PERSECUTED!

The world declares TOLERANCE, but they are only TOLERANT with the Christian as long as they do what they want and agree with.

A BELIEVER WILL NOT AGREE ON MORAL ISSUES THE SAME AS AN UNBELIEVER.  THEY HAVE DIFFERENT MASTERS.  

The unsaved obey their king and live his moral values – Eph. 2:2-3.

The SAVED now obey their King, and His name is Jesus!  

JESUS SAID IT BEST!

Matt. 10:34, Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.

THIS IS A RARE OCCASION IN AMERICA THAT CHRISTIANS HAVE TO TAKE A STAND WITH THE WORD AGAINST THE WORLD’S SYSTEM.  THIS CAUSES ANGER, HATRED, PERSECUTION SIMPLY IN THE NAME OF TOLERANCE.

STAND SAINT, STAND!

REJECTION – 2 Saddest Verses in the BIBLE!


rejection

WE HAVE ALL EXPERIENCED THE PAIN OF REJECTION…….EVEN THE KING OF HEAVEN!

Getting that Judas kiss means that it had to be rejection or a wound from someone close.  It had to be a person who you lowered your guard with, opened your heart toward and trusted.  You gave, loved and were faithful to their needs not only your own.

THEN….. THEY TURNED!

THEY REPELLED YOU!

THEY REJECTED YOU FOR NO REASON!  

The only thing you ever did was love them.  You were there when they needed you.  WHY?  WHAT HAPPENED?

There are some things that will just never make sense, but know this, our King experienced it too.

Gen. 3:8-9, And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”

1 Sam 8:7,  And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.

NOT THAT IT TAKES THE PAIN AWAY, BUT KNOW THAT YOUR KING HAS EXPERIENCED THAT WOUND OF REJECTION FROM US.  HE HAS ONLY EVER DONE GOOD TOWARD US.  HE HAS ONLY EVER TRULY LOVED US AND SENT HIS SON TO DIE TO RESTORE US.

Today, know that there is healing for your brokenness.  The King will heal your heart today!

Ps. 147:3, He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.

Luke 4:18, The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

KING JESUS WILL NEVER REJECT YOU, SO PLEASE DO NOT REJECT HIM!

Victim or VICTOR?


Rom. 8:37, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

HOW MANY THINGS?

ALL!!!

We have all been victims in our lives.

    1. Rejection as children.
    2. Abuse:
      1. Physical
      2. Emotional
      3. Mental
      4. Sexual
    3. Churches and Pastors’ have abused people.
    4. Parents have rejected, abandoned, abused their children.
    5. Friends and enemies have inflicted wounds on our hearts.

 

The major difference from being a VICTIM or being a VICTOR is simply the choice.

I cannot count how many people have used their past as an excuse to hold them back from the BEST that Jesus has for them.  It is easy to blame everyone else for the lack of living in VICTORY, but the truth is, it is each persons choice.

YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME!

It is not what has happened to you that is the problem, but what you are doing with the issue.

WE HAVE A CHOICE – BE HEALED, OR STAY TETHERED TO IT FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES, AND ALLOW IT TO STEAL OUR FUTURE!

Luke 4:18,  “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor;  He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

JESUS CAME TO HEAL YOU OF YOUR HURT, ALLOW HIM TO TOUCH YOU TODAY!

Say it out loud with me right now….

I CHOOSE TO NO LONGER BE A VICTIM!  I CHOOSE TO BE A VICTOR IN JESUS NAME!

Root of REJECTION Pt. 3


Eph. 3:17-19,  that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

The SEED, the ROOT, and the TREE, should be producing the FRUIT OF LOVE!

When we allow rejection to take root it grows up into an ugly, twisted, mangled tree that produces sour, rotten, or no fruit.

WE MUST REJECT THE ROOT OF REJECTION!

It comes down to worth.  Where do we obtain our worth?

If we are measuring our worth by people then we are going to be rejected and wounded.

Galatians 1:10 – For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

BUT

If we get our worth and value from the TRUTH, then no matter what someone does to us we can remain SOLID and HEALTHY.

Who is sitting in the chief chair of your life?

When we place God where He belongs in our lives and we aim to please Him, our value is generated by being hidden in Christ.

WE ARE WHO FATHER SAYS WE ARE!

WE CAN DO WHAT THE FATHER SAYS WE CAN DO!

No matter what anyone else does to us we are solid in our worth because of who Jesus says we are!

I CHALLENGE YOU TODAY TO LOOK AT YOUR LIFE AND MAKE SURE THAT JESUS IS #1, AND HE IS SEATED IN THE HEAD CHAIR OF YOUR LIFE.

HE IS FAITHFUL, HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU, HE WILL NEVER REJECT YOU, HE WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, HE WILL NEVER ABANDON YOU, HE WILL NEVER THROW YOU AWAY!

Make Jesus #1 today, and everyone else #2.

SEEDS of REJECTION Pt. 2


Mark 12:30-31, And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

WHAT IS REJECTION?  It is when someone makes you feel like you are worthless, unimportant, and they treat you like you are a waste of their time.

Rejection begins as a seed!  Everything that begins in our lives comes as a SEED.

Satan wants that seed to get deep enough that it will start growing roots that reach deep and wide in our lives.

Some have been rejected by your moms or dads, family, friends, spouses, children, job, church (abandonment, cruel words, abuse, deaths, divorce, unfaithfulness, comparisons).  Some even feel that God rejected them because they did not get a prayer answered.

Whatever seed takes root, that is the fruit the tree will produce.

If the seed is rejection, and it takes root, then the tree will produce, “I am not worth it,” “I am not important,” “I am not valuable” thoughts. These thoughts produce the desire to be FAKE so that you are accepted by others.

When you reject yourself because someone else has said you are not valuable, the fruit from the tree will be a bad attitude, anger, bitterness, depression, negativity, judgmentalism, controlling spirit, harshness, no-confidence, rebellion, distrust, escapism, medicating themselves…..

THE SEEDS THAT GROW INTO ROOTS OF REJECTION ARE EVIDENT IN OUR RELATIONSHIPS.

We go into PROTECTIVE MODE so nobody can hurt us again.

MAYBE YOU HAVE SAID THESE STATEMENTS.  IF YOU HAVE, YOU ARE IN PROTECTIVE MODE BECAUSE OF A WOUND.

I’ll never let anyone do this to me again!

They won’t hurt me because I don’t care!

You strike out to hurt before being hurt!

You buy things, or collect animals because they don’t judge or reject you!

Perfectionism. Nobody can meet my expectations.  Isolation.

Manipulation of people & environments!

Medicate through drugs, alcohol, sex….

You always run when you see rejection might happen!

Refusal to become VULNERABLE!

YOU DESERVE TO BE HEALED!  YOU DESERVE TO BE WHOLE!  JESUS PAID THE PRICE FOR YOUR HEALING!

Tomorrow we will conclude on how to be healed from this wounding of our souls.
