DYING,LOSING & SUFFERING FOR CHRIST
GOOD FRIDAY MIRACLE PRAYER NIGHT
FROM GREAT GRACE TABERNACLE
DYING, LOSING & SUFFERING FOR CHRIST
⭕️It takes love for God to dethrone self.
⭕️Man, in his fallen state, is a self-centered creature.
⭕️At the heart of sacrifice is a picture of how the person sacrificing has dethroned self and prioritized someone else.
⭕️There is dying and losing in sacrifice.
⭕️Until you come to the point of dying and losing, you are not yet ready to gain something more than what you are losing.
⭕️The ability to let go of your place and allow someone to be prioritized is where the power of a believer lies, because this is where the love of God comes in.
⭕️When you love God, you have decided that you don’t care what you are losing and what you might be dying of.
⭕️As a believer, the moment the element of dying and losing is lost from your individual walk, you have begun to lose power.
⭕️When your sleep and status are more important than anything else, as a Christian, you have begun to lose power.
⭕️When you allow God to have first place in your life, you have victory over the enemy.
⭕️One of the major benefits the blood of Jesus gave us is access.
⭕️In the absence of power, we may not realize destiny.
John 12:24, 1 Corinthians 15:31, Galatians 6:17, 2 Corinthians 11:27
⭕️Our God is not a God of revenge but a God of vengeance.
⭕️Vengeance is based on the justice system and God is the most just judge.
⭕️Earthly judges can be bribed but you cannot bribe God.
⭕️If you are not ready to die, not ready to lose, you are not ready for the next phase of your life.
⭕️We have taken power out of Christianity because Satan has given us alternatives to sacrifice, that is why he now seems as though he is more powerful.
⭕️There is no new life without killing the old one.
Hebrews 5:8, Job 6:23-25, 13:15, 14:14, Jeremiah 6:16
⭕️As long as you avoid suffering and losing, you will never walk in power, your title notwithstanding.
⭕️As long as sacrifice has no place in your life, you have no power.
⭕️When God speaks, He doesn’t speak for entertainment.
⭕️When you hear people who keep hearing the voice of God, by the grace of God they have consistently been doing what He tells them and that is why He speaks to them.
⭕️God has not chosen some to suffer and others to live well.
1 Samuel 1:11
⭕️Even God knows that there is wealth in the water.
Isaiah 60:5, 1-2, Philippians 2:9, Luke 2:51
⭕️If you’re not ready to give up something in order to go up, you will not go up.
⭕️The bible also has instructions, just like the doctor has instructions for a patient.
⭕️Every time the enemy will afflict you, there will be a natural explanation.
2 Kings 1:6, Jeremiah 33:3
⭕️When there is a particular place that you always see in your dreams, there is a meaning to it.
⭕️Whatever is stopping you from praying, making you to be giving explanations for not praying, is the thing that is holding you captive.
⭕️ Jesus said we should always pray.
⭕️Jesus also equated faith to prayer.
⭕️Prayer has so much power, more than atomic and nuclear power.
⭕️Prayer is preached so many times but practiced very few times.
⭕️The things of the Spirit must be understood in the Spirit.
⭕️Until your mouth meets God in the secret place, He won’t be with your mouth when you go out.
⭕️There is no new technology that will replace prayer.
Acts 2:3, 5, Luke 2:37
⭕️God will never promote you past your last level of obedience.
⭕️Before you get involved in something, it is important that you understand the rules.
⭕️Most of the frustrations from children of God in the body of Christ come from lack of understanding.
⭕️God knows better when he tells you that this is how you should handle things.
⭕️Christianity is not a religion, it is a proper relationship with a view of reflecting the life of the son of God in us, out there.
⭕️The difference between the rich and the poor is that the things that the rich do regularly, the poor do once in a while.
⭕️As a child of God, if you’re just praying without studying the bible, you’re another problem.
⭕️You won’t have the things God has said just because you are a child of God and you’re born again.
Matthew 6:11, 7:7, Mark 1:35
⭕️There are prayers where God wants you to be alone.
⭕️There is nothing wrong with sleep but there is everything wrong with being controlled by sleep.
⭕️Prayer has responsibility.
⭕️If you pray without believing, you will be frustrated.
⭕️There is a relationship between prayer and faith.
1 John 5:14
⭕️Your confidence comes from praying according to God’s will.
Hebrews 11:6, James 4:3, John 16:24
⭕️If you don’t ask to receive what is meant for you, you will not be happy.
⭕️To be prayer less is to sentence yourself to a joyless life.
⭕️Prayer is not a sprint. Prayer will bring a mindset of a marathon.
Ephesians 1:7, 2:12-13
⭕️The commonwealth of Israel is the Abrahamic blessing.
⭕️As a Christian, if you don’t want to know anything about covenants, how will God help you?
⭕️There are benefits in the covenant.
⭕️If your covenant sense doesn’t get awakened, you will always be facing some defeat here and there.
⭕️Every child of God must have a covenant sense.
⭕️Our protection is in the covenant.
⭕️There is no release of the spirit without covenant.
⭕️Without sacrifice there will be no release of the spirit.
⭕️The gods demand that you are fully consecrated to them.
⭕️Jesus died for the release of the Spirit to bring man back what he lost.
⭕️There is no other way of seeking the Kingdom of God than prioritizing the Holy Spirit because He is the administrator.
Luke 11:13, Galatians 3:14
⭕️The Holy Spirit is the administrator of the estate of Jesus.
⭕️Adam and Eve lost the voice that was having fellowship with them in the garden.
⭕️Ignorance is the most unfortunate thing that has happened to the body of Christ and Satan has taken advantage.
⭕️There is no blood anywhere that can speak authoritatively like the blood of Jesus.
⭕️That thing you don’t know has a voice and that is why it keeps happening around you.
⭕️A child of God can face things they are not supposed to face because there is a mystery somewhere.
⭕️God’s will for you is for that mystery in your life to be dissolved.
⭕️As powerful as the blood is, it must be used.
⭕️It must be spoken to silence the other voices.
⭕️It must be spoken as a defense around us and to go and destroy the things we don’t know.
⭕️Behind most challenges are mysteries we don’t know.
⭕️The blood gives access.
⭕️The blood has capacity to enter certain realms you have no access to, to check certain matters.
⭕️Evil covenants are made through the blood.
FATHER, BY YOUR MERCY, LET ANY MYSTERY BEHIND MY SITUATION BE DISSOLVED BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS [HEBREWS 12:24]
