“Pursue, Overtake, and Recover All”
“Seven Deadly D’s Of Spiritual Warfare”

Hebrews 8:6-9 Hebrews 7:1-9 Leviticus 17:30 I Corinthians 14:40 Malachi 3:7-12

• Whether you know it or not – You are under attack from the enemy

• If you will return unto God – He will return unto you

• When you disregard God – He will disregard you

• God takes it very personal when you turn your back on Him

• God said that He has bind Himself to you – He will be there to meet your needs

• All you have to do is keep His: Statutes – Principles - Order

• You need to understand that everything you have belongs to God

• God ask that you return a tenth to Him – When you do this, you are following His statutes

• One of the main areas that the enemy attacks is your finances

• Satan is trying to get you into situations that will prevent God from working on your behalf

• The enemy knows that if he can stop you from tithing - There will be a curse put on you for your disobedience to God

• God gave you everything you have – He asks you to return the tithe to Him - They are Holy

• God is not storing up money in heaven – What He is storing is your attitude of gratitude

• Therefore, the robbery is not the money – The real robbery is the opportunity for God to bless you the way He wants to bless you

• It’s a slap in God’s face when you say that you love God – Yet you will not obey God

• God is a “God of Order”

• God wants your life to be in order

• Here are Seven Deadly D’s To Spiritual Warfare:
1. Divider – Satan is a divider. He will try to divide you from your relationship from God -
your church – marriage – family
2. Denounce – Satan wants to denounce everything good about your life
3. Destroy – Satan’s MO is to destroy you
4. Doubt – This is a big weapon of the enemy
5. Discourage – Satan wants you to give up – to loose courage – to feel hopeless
6. Denial – Satan wars against you trying to get you to deny the things of God
7. Deception – Satan’s greatest weapon used to destroy you when you need God the most

• Everyone of you need God now more than you have ever needed Him before

• God is a “God of Order” – Whatever you give out – That same thing is coming back to you

• You can never complain about what you receive – Because you’re only receiving what you have given out

• Some people do not understand order – Would you put your money in a vending machine that had a sign saying “Out of Order”?

• When you disregard God with the tithe – It’s like a sign being placed on your back saying “Out of Order”

• When you come to church late – leave early – You’re “Out of Order”

• There’s people who ask God to bless them, their finances, their health, their business – Yet they are robbing God of the tithe

• Some people are eating the Word and enjoying the benefits of a ministry just like everyone else - Without contributing anything

• When you call the spiritual police on them – They have the nerve to get upset

• Are you allowing outside circumstances to get you “Out of Order” with God?

• Is your attitude towards what life is dishing out - Getting you out of faith with God?

• Are you allowing the Seven Deadly D’ s to get you “Out of Order”?

• You can not stay on the road to giving the enemy access to every area of your life

• The enemy wants to affect you and your family for generations to come – Demons love to find Christians who have “Out of Order” signs on them – You can not afford to continue giving the enemy the opportunity to block God from blessing you

• You can not give to God without God giving you back much more than you gave Him – It’s a matter of trust

“Pursue, Overtake, and Recover All”
“Warring With the Word”

II Corinthians 10:3-6 I Timothy 1:18 Malachi 3:10-12

• In these last days, the Holy Spirit has been teaching the church more and more about spiritual warfare – How to pray – How to rebuke the devil

• God is beginning to release more revelations concerning spiritual warfare so that His body can advance the Kingdom

• Holy Spirit will show you how to use every area that He has given you concerning weapons of warfare

• You know and use the spiritual warfare prayer – You loose, bind, cast out, and rebuke

• You do all that – But that is not complete

• There are more things that God is releasing so that you can see change in your life

• Your fight is not against flesh and blood – It’s against spiritual wickedness

• There are many weapons of our warfare – The spiritual warfare prayer is just one

• The word of God is a weapon – Until it is obeyed, it has not been activated

• You can come against the spirit of debt – Until you obey – Nothing changes

• In Deuteronomy 15:6, God told Israel “Thou shall not borrow” – But we are still borrowing

• People are borrowing so much until they began loosing their homes

• In Deuteronomy 28:12, God said “You shall be the lender and not the borrower”

• Romans 13:8 says: “Owe no man anything except to love him”

• The point is - You can come against any spirit you want – But until you obey God – You really have not waged a good war

• Every time you obey the word of God – You do serious damage to the kingdom of darkness

• God will not be out done – You have weapons – You need to know what they are

• Your obedience to the word is a weapon of warfare

• Everything that God has given in the word is a weapon for use – For you to overcome with

• Tithing is a weapon – When you obey God in the tithe – You advance in the Kingdom of God and punish the kingdom of darkness

• Too many Christians see the tithe as a traditional religious service – They don’t see it as a weapon of warfare

• You are a soldier in the Body of Christ – You’re not a civilian anymore

• When you gave your life to God – You became an enemy to the devil

• Disobedience is a weapon of the devil – Obedience is a weapon of God

• Many people are saying that the world’s financial crisis is a judgment of God

• The financial problems that has hit the world is sent by the enemy

• It was not sent to his children – It was sent for the children of God

• What the church was suppose to do – Was not get into fear and continue to obey God

• The church got afraid just like the world – They started listening to the news – What the government and others were saying

• Every time you disobey God – You slap God in the face

• Four things that will happen when you tithe:

1. Position: You will be placed into right position – You’ll be in the right place, at the right
time, to meet the right people

2. Provision: God will open up the windows and pour you out such a blessing – You will
have the power to prosper

3. Protection: God will rebuke the devourer for your sake – God provides protection for
His children when they obey

4. Partnership: God said if you return unto Him – He would return unto you – This is
Covenant - You enter into alliance with God

“God’s Encouragement”
“I Shall Pursue”

I Samuel 30:6- 26 I Samuel 17:34 -46 Ephesians 1:19-23 Ephesians 2:6 James 4:7

• It is about Spiritual Warfare – Attitude - Restoration

• If you want a year like no other - If you want all your stuff back – There is something that you have to do

• Stop waiting on God to do something – He has already done it

• You must take an aggressive attitude of fighting – The enemy is either fighting you or you are fighting him

• Learn how to engage the enemy on the level that will allow you to get your stuff back

• Learn how to fight off discouragement when you are in the mist of a battle

• When going through the darkest days of your life – Stop doing things the normal way

• Stop watching TV and doing other things that takes the focus off you praising God and pursuing Him – The anointing to pursue is upon you right now

• This is the time for you to say: “Enough is enough” – “I have taken all that I can take, and I’m not taking any more” – “I want my stuff back” – “I’m ready to fight”

• It is not about a physical fight – This is a spiritual battle

• You must have a spirit of pursuit – Stop letting the enemy get away with so much

• God is going to fight with you – He is not going to just fight for you

• You have the authority, in Jesus name, to engage the enemy – to disarm him - to defeat him to utterly destroy his works over your life

• You can not name a name that is not under the authority of the name of Jesus

• All things have been put under the feet of Jesus – He is the head over al things to the church

• We are the body of Christ – His feet are the church’s feet – Therefore, everything that can come against you is already under your feet – You and Christ are one

• Don’t subjugate your position of authority and allow the enemy to run over your life without fighting him back – Be an engager and a warrior

• Take your authority and fight the good fight of faith - To win every battle

• Resist: Stand against – In apposition – Deny it’s operation in your life – You must stand against everything that is standing against you

• Devil –same as the Spanish word Diablo – which is derived from the Greek word Diabolos

• Diabolos: He keeps coming – Keeps wearing you down until he wins

• Submit yourself to God – Resist the devil – And he will flee from you

• When you speak in the name of Jesus – By the authority of His name – By the blood, when you declare and decree a thing – It is going to happen if you stay in faith believing

• The worst thing that can ever happen to Diabolos – Is for you to get a righteous indignation and say : “Enough is enough” – “I’m not going to take any more” – It’s time for War

• The enemy wants to contain and restrict you – He is always fighting to keep you contained

• The only way out – You have to break out by the authority of the name of Jesus

Things to know when you pursue

• Pick – Be wise on the things you decide to pursue - Know what direction you’re going while pursuing – Attack the strongholds that are associated with the situation

• Participate – It is going to take participation with God for your deliverance and victory – This means engaging together, “we fight the good fight of faith”

• Practice – Being persistence is the key to you winning – Engage the enemy – Declare that you are not coming out of prayer until you see your victory

• Point – Be open for guidance and correction – Success is not measured by how many times you fail – It’s measured by how many times you try after you fail

• Pursue – Overtake – Recover All

• The way to pursue is with your heart

• It can not be in your head - Because things in your head come and go

• It has to be in your heart

“Overthrowing Challenges”

I Samuel 30:1-6 I Samuel 22:1-8 Genesis 14:11 Proverbs 6:31

• When the enemy invades your home or your marriage

• It’s all about taking something away from you – Subtracting from you

• The enemy will come through the back door or he will side swipe you – Even when you are doing everything right

• It is the enemy’s M.O. to take something captive – The devil don’t play fair

• David went and ministered to the four-hundred men in the cave Adullam – God brought them out of their distress, debt, and discontentment (their cave mentality )

• Life will sometimes throw you a curve – Like David, you have to learn to encourage yourself

• Don’t sit around waiting on someone to encourage you – Get into your secret place and encourage yourself

• Go before the Lord – He is the only one that can bring you out victoriously

• Stop sitting around crying – It is not the time for crying – It is time for battle

• Either you are attacking the enemy or he is attacking you – Either you are fighting the enemy or he is fighting you

• There is no middle ground – The devil is not going to let you start a business without him doing everything he can to stop and block you

• The one thing the devil doesn’t want – For you to let God bring glory and honor to your life

• Quit feeling sorry for yourself – Stop waiting to see what God will do about the situation

• God does not need you to wait to see what He is going to do – He needs you to get out and fight, fight, fight

• God is the “God of the War” and He is the “God of the Battle” – Get in the battle and start fighting for your life

• Pursue – Overtake – Recover all

• Declare war – Let the devil know that it’s going to cost him something for messing with you

• Declare the Word of God on the devil – Demand that he cease all activity against you

• Loose him – Sever him – Break him into pieces – Destroy – Crush – Dissolve his works by the authority of the name of Jesus

• Shout your victory – Right now

• Declare and decree that the Lord has said unto you – That you are the healed – The prosperous – The blessed – The head and not the tail – Above and not beneath

• I am not defeated – I am victorious

• Every time the devil gets into your life – He tries to go his way with your stuff

• When you hear bad news – Don’t start calling everyone – It’s time to start doing something

• Declare that the fight is on – Let the enemy know that he crossed the line when he started messing with you

• When the anointing of the Lord is upon you – You got a just cause – A righteous cause

• You don’t have to sit around crying and waiting for something to happen

• You already have permission – The authority – The power – The anointing

• To do something about your situation

• Pursue: The act of chasing – Overtaking – To chase down like a dog – To hunt – To track down – To go after

• When something happens in your life and the enemy comes after you

• You need to go after him – When you go after him in the name of the Lord – The Lord is going to be with you

• The battle is not just about you – It’s about generations – The devil has been stealing from your blood line – Your family members have not done anything about it

• Declare and decree that the enemy must bring back all of your generational stuff right now

• When you start the hunt – God will anoint you – He will give you insight and strategy on how to defeat your enemy
