Who Offended You And Stopped You From Receiving Your Miracle

Calvary Christian Center G-12 Administration – Life Notes Pastor: Phillip G. Goudeaux 04/21/2013 “Winning The Lost At Any Cost” “Who Offended You And Stopped You From Receiving Your Miracle” Mark 4:15-19 Matthew 26:6-16 Acts 24:16 • Many people have had their miracles blocked, prayers unanswered, and negative things happened in their lives because of the “spirit of offense” • Offense:(Greek) –Skandalizo – To set a trap with the intent to harm, hurt, maim, and to destroy • Satan is setting traps for the believer with the intent to harm, hurt, and maim • When you make a decision to be a part of a church that is teaching you the bible and biblical truths – You have to fight to keep the truth • Keep the whole truth and nothing but the truth • It’s the truth that will set you free - The enemy does not want you to get the truth • Once you get the truth – You have to fight to keep it • The enemy will do everything he can to steal the truth from you • He knows that if you will hold fast to the truth - It will set you free • It’s not the truth that you know – It’s the truth that you’re operating under • When you get offended, the enemy then comes to make you unfruitful and unproductive • Satan wants to stop you from being a blessing to anybody • Don’t get offended while Pastor Goudeaux is teaching on offense • Remember that satan will come immediately to steal the word (truth) that has been sown into your life • God is a “Miracle Working God” • If you need a miracle, a breakthrough, a answer to prayer, or you need God to do something significant on your behalf - God is able to take care of you • If God is not doing what you want Him to do – It’s not a “God” problem, it’s a “you” problem • You need to find out what is hindering God from working in your life • God’s love is unconditional – You must work on yourself so God can do what He wants to do • In Matthew 26:the disciples got offended at Mary’s appreciation of what Jesus had done for her • She gave back to the one who had done something for her - It is good for you to give to your “Man of God” • You must realize that poverty has a mask • The enemy wants to keep you in a state of lack, poverty, and in bondage • Jesus broke the curse of poverty - He does not want you to be bound • You have to work on your own attitude – No one can forgive for you • Satan wants to destroy your life because somebody offended you • The “spirit of offense” will cause you to betray the ones you love the most • When offense comes – It opens the door to betrayal, rebellion, and disloyalty • When the above doors are opened – It will cause an even deeper door to open • It opens the door to spiritual suicide—You will cutoff God’s ability to work on your behalf • Your prayers can be hindered through your actions • Your greatest breakthrough is right in front of you - If you can just let go of your old ugly past and all the hurt you’ve experienced and release the “spirit of offense” • You must remain void of offense towards God and man • Power to the people that hang in there, power to the people that stay in faith, power to the people that keep believing and power to the people that keep standing, knowing that your blessing is on the way – You cannot get offended while you are waiting • You will never make it to the level that God wants you to be on if you can’t deal with obstacles • The devil does not play fair – Your prayers may not get answered as quick as you want; however, they will get answered • If you are going through something – Don’t feel that God has abandoned you • There are some lessons to be learned in your pain – God is trying to help you - He is trying to teach you some things • Drop the offense and receive the things that God has for you

Signs – A distinguishing mark, warning, symbol 2. Seasons - An appointed time, place or meeting 3. Days 4. Years

"Why should I Tithe"?

Calvary Christian Center G-12 Administration – Life Notes Pastor: Phillip G. Goudeaux Jr 02/17/2013 “Winning The Lost At Any Cost” “Why Do/Should I Tithe” Romans 4:18-21 Mark 4:14-19 Hebrews 11:1,6,33; (1-33) Genesis 4:1-7 • If you want to be blessed by God, there are some things you must do • You must obey His Word in the area of tithing • Tithing represents to God who is in ownership • God gives you the free will to tithe or not to tithe • Tithing is ten percent – God really owns it all, you are just giving back to Him a tenth • You should tithe because you appreciate God and because you want to please Him • If you want to please someone - You will go out of your way to please them or do what you can for them • Tithing is pleasing God Four key things you must be willing to do: 1. You must be willing to take bold actions without understanding • God will tell you to do something and you must be prepared to do it 2. Be willing to pursue wisdom • Every wrong decision you make is due to a lack of wisdom • Wisdom comes through the Word of God 3. Be willing to fight negative thoughts • The enemy is going to do everything he can to throw negative thoughts into your mind to stop you from being successful and victorious • Satan’s job is to pollute your mind with negative thoughts to cause you to doubt God’s ability, power, and willingness to show up on your behalf • You must cast down all negative thoughts 4. Be able to stand up under pressure • When you get pressure, you need to lift your head and shout your way out • You must put some pressure on the enemy • Pray more, give more, and go out and win some souls • The number one thing that Satan does to rip you off – He uses offense • Grow up and start letting people dictate to you • As you start trying to get your life together – The enemy is going to fight against you • If you want to lift more weight – You must put more weight on the bar • The enemy wants to choke the Word in you - He does not want you to be under the Word • He wants your life to be fruitless • If you are going to live a victorious life – You can not consider the circumstances around you • The circumstances will come to dictate to you because they want to kill, steal, and destroy • When you are going through circumstances – Began to praise and give God the glory for your victory • The enemy is fighting against you because you have some faith that he wants to steal from you • Faith is not just believing – It is acting on the Word of God • Acting on the Word releases the power of God on your behalf • You don’t have to see it to know that you have it Some things your must do this year to have the greatest year you have ever had: 1. Hear the Word like you have never heard it before 2. Dream like you have never dreamed before 3. Believe God like you have never believed Him before 4. Pray like you have never prayed before 5. Obey like you have never obeyed before 6. Sow like you have never sown before 7. Praise God like you have never praised Him before • God has principles and ways that He wants to bless you • God will not allow you to manipulate Him • God wants you to do what the Word says • When you take the key of faith and put it into the ignition of God’s Word – Things will start happening in your life • It will only happen when you do what God tells you to do

G12 Life Group Notes– January 06, 2013 – 6:30 a.m. Pastor Goudeaux __ Open in Prayer Song Testimonies Prayer of Three Witnessing Receive Offering The Purpose of Life Groups “Open Cell” Win Consolidation Disciple Send Acts 2:44-47 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. Life Groups are extensions of the church • Life Groups are the bridges between the community/world and the church • Life Groups are not to be held at the church • Life Groups are to provide a bridge for the disillusioned, disenfranchised, disconnected, distracted, misinformed, and offended • You the Life Group leader are a resource, bringing revelation to the unfaithful • Life Group leaders are providing access for people to re-enter the church fellowship • Life Group leaders provide accountability • The Life Group’s sole purpose is to WIN • Life Groups should not be a bible study • Life Groups are about building relationships and connecting or reconnecting people to the church The Power of the Chair Every Life Group meeting should have an open chair as the focal point for its attendees, “The Power of the Chair” • The Goal is to fill the chair • When you fill the chair - the Kingdom WINS! • Every meeting should have an empty chair • Everyone should try to fill the chair for the next meeting • Close your meeting with a prayer exhorting all for the opportunity to fill the chair Ask for Prayer Requests Close in Prayer
