“Having an Aggressive Attitude Toward the Enemy”

Matthew 11:12 Luke 10:19 Acts 10 Genesis 14:14-16 I Samuel 30:1-6

• Many Christians are living a passive lifestyle

• They are praying and asking God to do something - When God has asked them to do something

• God has commanded you to take your authority, your dominion, to use the anointing or the power of God that He has put upon you to make a difference

• There is an area of your life where God expects you as a Christian to be on the attack – To be violent toward what has been happening to you, your health, marriage, family, children, and your finances

• At the name of Jesus – Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess

• God has given you authority in the heavens and in the earth

• The violent shall take it by force

• Violent: Aggressive – To take power, might, and aggressive authority – Go after it

• You can not allow the enemy to come into your house and attack your family without aggressively dealing with him in that area

• You are called to take care of business – And you must have an aggressive attitude in those areas

• Whatever the enemy is fighting you with – You have the power, or authority to exercise in this earth realm

• Stop sitting around hoping and wishing for something to change in your life

• When you have the authority to change it - You have the authority to make a difference

• Many Christians are praying and putting it in God’s hand to do something

• That is a passive spirit that the enemy loves for Christians to have

• You’re praying for God to do something – When God has already told you what to do
• God wants you to be aggressive in every area of your life

• This is your year to bring back all that was stolen from you

• There were some things stolen from you that you didn’t even know about

• Some things were stolen from your family members who are no longer here

• The rewards are there for you

• Sometimes when you’re going through the tough times and there is no one to stand with you – You can not be mad at the people that will not encourage you

• You must stand anyway and encourage yourself in the Lord your God

• The devil loves to discourage you – He is trying to cause you to give up

• You must believe that God is still on the throne

“Firstfruits Sunday”

Genesis 7:1-3 Genesis 8:15-18

• And Noah went forth - God will never advance you pass your last act of disobedience

• When God can find thankful people – He will always show Himself strong on their behalf

• Noah did something unusual to show his thanksgiving – He first offered something to God before going about his business

• It’s called the Principle of Exchange

• If you want God to do more for you – You have to exchange something to Him

• Don’t look at what it is – Look at who He is

• Through Noah’s offerings to God – Some things were stopped and there was a reversal of some negative things on the behalf of mankind

• God is always concern about the seed – He will always make sure that the seed is kept alive

• During Firstfruits Giving: (II Chronicles 29)

1. It is about having the right perception of Firstfruits
2. Having the Spirit of excitement
3. Having passion to recognize this is the heart of God
4. Having expectancy

• Seven Blessings To Believe God For:

1. Supernatural provision (A flow of abundance) (Proverbs 3:9, 10)
2. Drive out opposition to your increase (Exodus 34:24)
3. Expand your real estate holdings
4. God will take away the desires of your enemy to hurt you (Exodus 34:24)
5. Blessings upon your household (Ezekiel 44:30)
6. Your income will be blessed (Or the rest of your income) (Romans 11:16)
7. Supernatural increase (II Kings 4:42)

• Three things you need for today:
1. A Spirit of worship
2. Release your faith
3. A Spirit of rejoicing

“The Principle of Firstfruits / Open Giving”

Proverbs 3:1-10 Exodus36:5-7 Exodus 35:4, 5,21,22,29 Nehemiah 10:35-38
Ezekiel 44:30 Ezekiel 48:14 Matthew 5:16 Matthew 6:1-4 I Timothy 6:18

• God is the “God of Principle” – Everything He does is through principles

• Many Christians operate outside of the principles – But they want God to bless them according to principles

• Principles are what God uses to bless you

• Principles - When broken, will curse you and bring destruction upon you

• Walking in Love is a principle of God – Yet many Christians walk outside the principle

• So those Christians don’t receive the blessing they want because they choose to hate and hold on to things

• Forgiveness is a principle – People want forgiveness without forgiving

• When you want something to change in your life – Start changing principles in your life

• If it has not been working for you – There is something you’re not doing that is holding back the blessing of God in your life

• It is never a God issue – It is a you issue

• Things can always get better - If you get better

• Principles, when activated – Brings a reward with it

• You have the ability to stop a lot of things that’s happening in your life through Firstfruits giving

• That is why the devil will fight against you – He does not want you to be set free from the bondages in your life

• Firstfruits giving will cause the blessing to rest upon your house

• The blessing – God’s breakthrough power working on your behalf

• When you give openly – It shames the devil and brings glory to God

• Alms is giving to the poor

• God is against open giving if giving to the poor - God does not want you to shame the poor

• God did not prosper you to just store it up – He wants you to be a distribution center

• You must be consistent at working the principles – Be the best that you can be at all times

• God wants you to be rich in good works and deeds by doing the principles

• God is trying your heart for the next promotion, breakthrough, and miracle

• God is trying to stir you up – But it is up to you to have a willing heart

• On Firstfruits Sunday, I stand in agreement that God will release three things to you:
1. The spirit of wisdom will be stirred up in you life
2. Favor will flow into your life like a river
3. The spirit of generosity will be upon your life

• During this time when things are upside down and anything that could go wrong, is going wrong

• It is time for the “God of more than enough” to show up strong on your behalf
