Thirty Second Anniversary

Calvary Christian Center
G-12 Administration – Life Notes
Thirty Second Anniversary
Dr. Earl D. Johnson
“Living in God’s Order and Increasing in His Favor”
“The Test of Obedience”

Isaiah 1:19, 20 II Corinthians 10:1 - 6 I Kings 12:31 I Kings 13:1 - 14

• We are celebrating Pastor Goudeaux being obedient to God – As it relates to what God is doing in our lives

• Obedience is the key to everything that is going to happen in your life

• Many Christians are obedient – But not willing

• When you refuse God – That progresses into rebellion

• Obedient means: Hear what God is saying
Listen with the intent to obey
Hearken to God’s word
Listen with attention or interest

• A great way to celebrate this 32nd Anniversary is to – Succeed because you heard

• You must be a hearer and a doer

• There are people that hear but don’t do – And people that do but did not hear

• Willing means: To exercise towards the will

• Refuse means: To be weary - Fail to comply or give obedience towards

• How do you get weary? – Because you are not willing

• You cannot do things based on other people’s expectations and prosper

• You do not do something because you know what the consequences are

• You don’t do because of “if you don’t” - You must be willing

• You should walk by faith not because you will not get something

• It should be because you have excepted the principle – You should will to walk by faith

• You lose testimony when you refuse – You lose influence when you refuse – An you lose an opportunity for the harvest when you refuse

• Don’t be good just because if you don’t – You will go to hell

• That should not be your motivation

• Your motivation should be - You love the Lord - You lift your voice to worship and praise Him

• Because He is God and you “will” to praise Him – To give Him thanks

• You don’t have to be afraid of going to hell – If you are obedient and you do not refuse

• Rebel means : To be disobedient

• You need to come to the place with God where you say “I’m going to be obedient” and “willingly obedient”

• The base part of maturity is learning how to transition from a flesh walk and life to a Spirit life

• The greatest gift you can give yourself is to learn how to walk in the Spirit

• What is flesh? - Human ingenuity - Human value – Human invention

• You cannot please God from the flesh or the human initiative

• You have to please Him from the Realm of the Spirit

• If you receive situations from the flesh or human initiative – You will absorb the impact

• When you respond to things from the Realm of the Spirit – The Spirit absorbs it

• The Spirit will translate things to you - The weapons of your warfare are not carnal / fleshly

• They are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds

• Stronghold comes from the word acroma - A firm imposition against human confidence

• The enemy wants you to operate in the flesh because

• You have not confidence in the Spirit when you’re operating in the flesh

• You cannot bring order to your life when you are “out of order”

• The devil does not have access to you if you are not on his territory

• Have the order and power of obedience in your life

• If you are obedient – Then everything that follows you will be obedient

G-12 Administration – Life Notes
Pastor: Phillip G. Goudeaux
“Living a Life Committed to Pleasing God”
“Firstfruit Principles”

Colossians 1:1-9 I Thessalonians 4:1 John 8:29 Proverbs 16:7 Proverbs 3:9, 10
I John 3:22 Galatians 3:13 Matthew 5:16 Ma6:1-4

• Making the choice to live a life pleasing to God requires self denial

• A commitment to obeying God

• Those whom you please - Has the power to determine what happens in your life

• Why should God give anything if you have done nothing for Him

• Some people want God to bless them without having responsibilities

• You have a responsibility to live saved – to live right – to forgive - to walk in love

• God is interested in you abounding more and more

• It comes after pleasing Him –Things just go better when you please God

• When you make a commitment to living a life of pleasing God

• Everything in your life will change

• Anytime God ask you for something - His has a reward on His mind

• God never ask for anything without having a bigger plan or a reward for you

• A Father always desires to bless his children

• Because of sin, the Father lost the right to intervene in your life

• The Father is trying to find ways to reach His children - Because this world is cursed

• God never planned on being separated from His children

• Jesus is a Firstfruit – When you commit to Jesus you receive the blessing of the Father

• God wants the blessing on your life

• When you have the blessing on your life – Everybody will know you have the blessing

• The blessing comes through principles

• When you do something that earns the blessing

• Then God returns and gives you the blessing because of your obedience

• Your act of obedience releases the power of God on your behalf

• When the blessing is on you - No curse can prevail against you

• The Firstfruit is a principle

• Principles are permanent

• Principles never changes

• Principles can work anywhere

• Apple the Word and the Word will work for you

• Principles can never be broken

• When principles are violated – They produce destruction

• Everything that you say and do should be for the purpose of Glorifying God

• Giving honors God – Some blessings that come from Firstfruit giving

1. Supernatural provision or a flow of abundance
2. God will drive out the opposition against you
