He Will Keep You
Rev 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
Mat 2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
Let me START tonight with a KINGDOM KEY….
When the Lord begins to fulfill your destiny, the enemy will try and destroy it in its INFANCY
Many Similarities between giving birth to a child in the Natural and giving birth to our DESTINY in the Spirit Realm.
There is a time of conception/waiting/labor/delivery.
In the spirit, when we give BIRTH to the Promises of God our DESTINY is in its most VULNERABLE STATE.
It is THEN that the enemy will try to gain access to DEVOUR/DESTROY IT!!!
At the MOMENT our destiny is BIRTHED, it is at its most HELPLESS STATE.
How many of you are HONEST ENOUGH to say that I CAN DO NOTHING IN MYSELF!!!! COME ON
If I am LEFT ALONE, I will SURELY BE DESTROYED!!!
HOW MUCH MORE SO FOR A BABY…..
Just like a NEWBORN needs care to keep them healthy, we NEED our Lord MORE THAN EVER
I NEVER WANT TO EVER STOP DEPENDING ON HIM!!! COME ON
SO THE QUESTION IS …..WHY
WHY would the Lord ALLOW for us to be TESTED at such a VULNERABLE time?
WHY???? WHEN we NEED Him the MOST / We are in DESPERATE need of His help.
THAT IS WHEN HE SHOWS HIMSELF STRONG AND MIGHTY!!!! COME ON
HE IS STRONG AND MIGHTY!!!!!!! GLORY TO GOD HALLELUJAH
We don't know what we're doing and He LIKES IT THAT WAY…COME ON
God SEEKS to CAUSE US to TRUST HIM WOW
GOD IS IN CHARGE….say
IN EVERY TRIAL/CIRCUMSTANCE/SITUATION
GOD IS IN CHARGE, and IF we RELY on HIM, we GROW STRONGER and STRONGER IN HIM……COME ON
WHO WANTS TO GROW STRONGER TONIGHT!!!!
LISTEN we NEED to be DRIVEN TOWARD our MIGHTY GOD!!!! MORE And MORE!!!
IF We KNOW our need is GREAT AND SEE HOW VULNERABLE we ACTUALLY ARE….THEN we are more likely obey Him!!!!
Jesus was no exception.
Why did Satan use Herod to attack????
As a CHILD, He was VERY SPECIAL, BUT this little baby could not save the world at this stage…..
Even though THAT was His DESTINY.
He could not even change His own diaper
YET Herod FEARED Him and realized there was NO BETTER TIME to try and destroy Him
Herod killed hundreds/thousands of babies while he was trying to destroy Jesus.
Even with ALL his efforts ...he failed.
But Herod did not destroy Him BECAUSE God saved Him
JUST LIKE GOD WILL SAVE YOU…..COME ON
LISTEN when the Lord begins to fulfill a promise, the enemy will try and destroy it in its INFANCY
When your destiny is birthed, all hell seems to come against it and you become a prime target for the enemy.
He wants to destroy YOUR DESTINY while it is small and helpless
That way we will know it is just an attack and NOT THE END of US.
We should not fear this attack, because it just means that the ENEMY IS SCARED
You may look at yourself and not FEEL very threatening RIGHT NOW; you may even feel like a FAILURE.
BUT I GUARANTEE…I said….repeat
Satan, like Herod, is TERRIFIED of your DESTINY COME ON!!!
The dragon waiting for the woman to give birth in Revelation 12:4 is a prophetic picture of Christ no doubt
BUT I ALSO believe this scripture is a picture of the enemy's tactics against YOUR DESTINY in Christ.
He does not play fair, he did not play fair with Jesus and he won't play fair with us.
HE WILL STRIKE AT YOUR WEAKEST….
BUT GOD HAS A PLAN/PROMISE……
Isa 43:1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
Isa 43:2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
When we WALK THROUGH PERSECUTION, WE SEE God MORE CLEARLY and Experience a GREATER MEASURE of REVELATION .
We shouldn't become fearful because of these attacks
BUT let it INCREASE our CONFIDENCE in THE LORD PROMISES/DESTINY COME ON!!!!
When He was born, Jesus SEEMED DEFENSELESS.
He was the Savior, but He was just a helpless baby... OR WAS HE?????
HEY!!!!!!! LETS NOT FORGET the God of DESTINY.
The God of the whole universe is watching out for you.
WHATEVER comes upon you, you WILL see the COMPLETENESS of YOUR DESTINY
You have NOTHING to FEAR because God is with you. COME ON
Gen 28:15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
WHATEVER life throws at you, you know that you are in the HANDS of a MIGHTY GOD!!!
THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE!!! COME ON
EVERY battle you endure He will use to STRENGTHEN YOU COME ON/ HALLELJUAH
Through EVERY TRIAL, you GAIN KNOWLEDGE.
With EVERY TEST, pass/fail NO MATTER,
You become MORE AWARE of God's MERCY/GRACE.
It is God's desire that you POSSESS MORE of His Son's character THROUGH EVERY TRIAL you endure.
LOOK How many of you KNOW that TRIALS are PAINFUL….
BUT how MANY of you KNOW that PAIN is PART OF THE PLAN!!!!
THE PAIN HAS PURPOSE!!!
It HURTS and we MAY NOT UNDERSTAND IT…..
BUT…..IT IS a Part of God's plan for us and we NEED TO TRUST HIM…say
Our trials PRODUCE A POWER IN US that can be Gained BY NOTHING ELSE!!!!
DO NOT DESPAIR CHURCH
God will CARRY YOU THROUGH EVERY Valley/Mountain.
Don't WASTE your energy or your HEART trying to RUSH THROUGH/AWAY from the pain.
Work with it to Produce the Purpose/Power God INTENDS
LISTEN….HEAR ME RIGHT NOW CHURCH
WHEN THE LORD BUILDS THE HOUSE!!!!! COME ON
Psa 33:8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
Psa 33:9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
COME ON WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE!!!!
God spoke and the light He called day and the darkness night.
EVERY morning when we awake and the sun rises with us, we experience God's faithfulness to the plans He has spoken into being for our lives.
It doesn't matter if we make mistakes; God IS FAITHFUL to DEFEND what He has set in place.
Psa 33:10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
Psa 33:11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
When the Lord has set you in place, you STAND FIRM. GOD WILL KEEP YOU!!!!!
What God has established, He is faithful to protect.
Your destiny is in God's hands and HE WILL NOT FAIL
GOD CANNOT FAIL! HE IS GOD COME ON!
The ONLY DESTINY worth having is the ONE God has PLANNED for you.
The only house that is of ANY VALUE is the house in which God has built for you.
I SAY God BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU!!!
I SAY PUT YOUR HOPE IN GOD EVEN WHEN YOU FEEL DEFENSELESS
I SAY OF GOD BE FOR YOU ……WHO!!!!! WHO CARE WHAT IS AGAINST YOU……
COME ON lets PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!
