Pushing Back the Darkness PT 3


Notes Here: ⬇️


2 Samuel 23 ESV

11 And next to him was Shammah, the son of A-gay the Ha-ra-ree-ite . The Philistines gathered together at Lehi, where there was a plot of ground full of lentils, and the men fled from the Philistines. 12 But he took his stand in the midst of the plot and defended it and struck down the Philistines, and the Lord worked a great victory.


Because a squatter nor a servant will fight for what they do not believe is theirs.


As a son in the house, it’s my responsibility to stop the thief from taking what belongs to me….


1. We are the problem.


2 Thessalonians 2:7

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.


RESTRAIN = Prevent someone or something from doing something or Keep them in control or within limits.


2. There is a supernatural war going on in the heavens.


Ephesians 6 KJV

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

There are pockets of darkness.

3. We can also be the answer.


1 Peter 2 KJV

9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;


We have been strategically positioned by the Kingdom!


Ephesians 2 ESV

1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— 3 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,


We have been strategically positioned by the Kingdom!


Mark 3 ESV

27 But no one can enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. Then indeed he may plunder his house.


Matthew 25 ESV

5 As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept. 6 But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps.


Matthew 5 ESV

14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.

You’ve been strategically positioned by the Kingdom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We don’t have to settle for the way things are.


We are the only thing standing in the way of darkness, but we’re waiting on someone else to do something.


Cultural hazard: Let’s “GO” to church…
