Persecution in Spiritual Acceleration

1. Acceleration Starts with the Anointing
I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
Truly spiritual acceleration is in our church
i remembered last 3yrs ago we didnt have this kind of liberty
we were always struggling
and now it is so easy, very easy
I feel like God is saying what was Hard in the past will become easy again
Everytime i remember the times that we were in Quezon
i would only remember 2 parts
the good part and the bad part
And now it is so easy… it never to my mind that prophecies will be a thing of the norm
last time we all wanted to here a word of knowledge or wisdom
but now its so normal
The presence of God is so normal, if the presence doesn’t come its abnormal already
and those that are playing2 in this season there’s something wrong with them,
truly we are in this season of acceleration
we can be bold to say what God wants to say, be bold to do Gods business
and today in this era I can sense that we don’t care whoever Goes from our church not that we chase people out, but we have this confidence in God that he will provide. He will deliver he will make way.
but this anointing is precious it is given to whom God has trusted it.
think about Joshua when he received the anointing there was boldness, and the people declared we will follow Joshua
think about Elisha when he received the anointing, he performed double of what Elijah did
apostles were so cowardly before they received the anointing, but the anointing comes the place shook, they turned the world upside down…
they had this mentality of “we don’t care what the world thinks”
either we follow God or you…
we don’t care…. some of us seek the praise of our classmates our colleagues… “ay ka buki sa imo ga worship2 ka man gali kag gahibi2.??” “we don’t care”
if we change our ” I don’t care of the world” to ” i care of what the world thinks” we will lose
2. Spiritual hindrance
hindrance is eminent once you received the anointing
Today we have so many leaders that are under disciplined, we’re coming back again to the old times
there will always be battle in the spiritual and they only see one enemy in your life and that’s the anointing
David had a Goliath after the anointing
Joshua had Achan
Elisha had the kids
apostle had the pharisees
I remember when i was young why.. almost every church camp there will be weird stuff going on or there will be backsliding… because the devil will do everything to discourage you…
Just imagine Jesus after he received the anointing… the spirit led him to the wilderness to be tested
1. Devil attacks the vessel
2. The Spirit tests the vessel
4 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
Diaphulasso = thoroughly protect
so Satan will use People to oppose you in your walk with God
it will happen everytime, David when he was anointed to be king of Israel the enemies attacked him
2 Samuel 5:17
But when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines came up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the hold. 18 The Philistines also came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
when David brought the ark back, his wife disdained him
2 Samuel 6:20-23
20 When David returned home to bless his household, Michal daughter of Saul came out to meet him and said, “How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, going around half-naked in full view of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!”
21 David said to Michal, “It was before the LORD, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house when he appointed me ruler over the LORD’s people Israel—I will celebrate before the LORD. 22 I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honor.”
23 And Michal daughter of Saul had no children to the day of her death.
• It is sure to happen when you receive the anointing Satan will use everything to stop you from your walk with God
Your brother sister mother father wife situation friends, internet … just to not let you continue your walk
When we arrived in Cambodia… me and my wife were fighting because of a simple matter…
and u will feel blockage, our hotel was canceled in Cambodia
u see most of us here in Etab are ignorant really… so ignorant
so ignorant to the fact u didn’t even know that u were once anointed…
How are we anointed?
1. the anointing is given directly to a person by God
2. the anointing can be passed on by prayer
3. The anointing can sometimes be rubbed on you…
and most of us are not aware of that… and we didn’t know that the anointing was rubbed on us…
and that’s the reason why some of you are defeated Christians
some of you are so poor and to the point it’s not biblical anymore
some of us are so foolish, some of us are so stupid
“when some people talk to you all they can see is stupidness”
the bibles says be wise as a serpent harmless as a dove
Some of us are so sick… You’re sick but the doctors don’t know what is wrong with you … because of spiritual attack
He brought them forth also with silver and gold, and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
I think some of you need to wake up
And i still stand of what i believe.. If you’re not a servant / that has a ministry you’ll not make it to heaven why? You say…
the bible says every Christian is anointed
and the anointing is for what?
for ministry / Service…
We will be attacked once the anointing is passed unto us… but the good thing is the enemy can’t touch our lives when we go to spiritual battle
I have never seen anyone in the bible who was anointed and lost a battle
Unless there’s problem in your life like Saul…
Listen to me, if you are anointed you cannot say the devil is attacking me and has brought me sickness… nope
Unless there’s something wrong in your life…
Satan can’t touch Jobs possessions, family, life because of the hedge
3. Taking care of the anointing
Don’t murmur against your leaders
1 Sam 18:11-15 And Saul cast the javelin; for he said, I will smite David even to the wall with it. And David avoided out of his presence twice.
12 And Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with him, and was departed from Saul.
13 Therefore Saul removed him from him, and made him his captain over a thousand; and he went out and came in before the people.
14 And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the LORD was with him.
15 Wherefore when Saul saw that he behaved himself very wisely, he was afraid of him.
1 Sam 18:28-30
28 And Saul saw and knew that the LORD was with David, and that Michal Saul’s daughter loved him.
29 And Saul was yet the more afraid of David; and Saul became David’s enemy continually.
30 Then the princes of the Philistines went forth: and it came to pass, after they went forth, that David behaved himself more wisely than all the servants of Saul; so that his name was much set by.
Some of us kept on talking bad about the leadership…
That is why some leaders have a hard life, because
when you talk against your superior God counts it as rebellion
And for that reason the devil has right access in your life
prayer is the most obvious thing to do. in order to take of the anointing but the problem is most of us dont do it anyways
most of us pray for less than 5 minutes or some of us pray while sleeping
real prayer is sitting or kneeling to God, and communicating with God
real prayer needs intimacy, real prayer needs privacy
There must be the Presence of God in your homes
if there is none i question your Christianity, if your home feels creepy or freaky.. you have to be worried
worship must be our daily lifestyle
it is so easily so easily as long as u give time to worship
3. Read your bible
Reading the bible is one way of knowing Gods message to you and Gods direction to your life without God’s word we lose sight of our track
fasting must be done in order to preserve the anointing
i remember ptr james’ teaching if u want more anointing no problem u just need more
prayer more reading the bible more worship and more fasting
4. Act according to Gods prompting for a Victorious life
if we all would just take care of our anointing we would be living in victory
think about these men Joshua, Elisha, apostles and David
after receiving they were persecuted or were hindered
but what did they do
Joshua killed Achan
Elisha cursed those kids
David told his wife bluntly , killed Goliath, killed his enemies
i remembered when my father persecuted me for believing in Jesus and with my pastors
“You are brainwashed by them”
“Your tear is fake”
its not everyday that i get these quotes but when it comes its spiritual battle time
and my weapon would always be the word of God
the beginning of knowledge is the fear of the Lord but fools despise wisdom and understanding
in my fathers burial my uncle wanted me to do this ritual…
they’re all such hypocrites you know… acting like they really care for my father
but they didn’t know every night my father would rehearse to me the pain that he is going through with his siblings
and when i said no… They wanted to bail from the burial… Go then!!!
i remember the time when my mother asked me in the car. What if my father wanted me to do wedding in the Chinese temple, i said to her then there will be a war
listen if the world persecutes you stand firm and fight back
I assure you victory will be yours
why? because the world cannot win against the anointing of God
God will lift up a standard against them
that’s why i get discourage when i hear some members of the church don’t fight for their belief… there are 3 great highlights in our life
The world doesn’t hate you, they hate whats in you, and that summarize the christian life
Jesus said they will hate you because they hated me first
If we would all just fight for our faith.
contend for whats right.
preserve what was given to us i assure you you will live a victorious life.
