“LIVING IN THE OVERFLOW”
Blessings Truth Church Family!
We hope you were able to join us, either in person or on-line this Sunday. The atmosphere in the sanctuary was wonderfully charged with His presence, as the Praise team lead the congregation into uplifting, heartfelt praise & worship, honoring Him, surrendering to His goodness, and praising Him for His relentless pursuit of us no matter what, through His love, grace and mercy!
Pastor Jason opened the service praying a special prayer of the Lord’s covering over our visitor Anthony Bonna who is our District 2 County Commissioner, and also Donna Mills, School Board District 3 both running for re-election.
In spite of our political views and differences, we are Kingdom people first!
We need to pray for our elected officials and those running!
We need to elect those who’s thinking, position and platform, lines up with Godly and righteous views – “What would Jesus do?”
Don’t believe a lie!
It takes a spirit of wrong thinking to keep you in bondage!
We live in self-imposed bondage and we beat ourselves up with wrong thinking and beliefs and blame the devil for it!
Your problem is not a demon oppressing you – it’s your own wrong thinking!
If you believe wrong – you will live wrong!
If you believe a lie – you will live a lie!
If you continue in wrong thinking, you will never receive a breakthrough and revelation of what God has destined for you!
When we don’t believe right, we live a life of disfunction!
Sometimes the lies we believe most are the ones we tell ourselves!
We need revealed truth to break off the deception!
We need to cast down every high thought and imagination that is not of God! (2nd Corinthians 10:5).
If you seek after God, He will give you a new revelation that will change every aspect of your life!
We need to believe right, walk by faith and change our mind in order to change our life! (Romans 2:12)
None of us are perfect! We all need Jesus! We must walk daily with the Lord!
We cannot do it on our own – in our own strength!
Heaven is perfect but we are not!
God made a way for us where there seems to be no way!
He is Jehovah, El Shaddai! He is more than enough!
God’s plan for your life is that you live an abundant life – in the overflow!
God has a storehouse and He wants us to have one!
The prosperity of God is for every dimension of your life!
Prosperity is about your health, your physical and emotional, your spiritual and your financial well-being!
Religion has programmed people for lack!
Religion teaches that being humble means being poor, which equates to being Holy.
That teaching is incorrect and it is not in your bible!
Money is not the root of all evil – the love of money is!
Religion teaches you that it is evil to want and to have nice things.
That is a lie and you don’t have to be ashamed to have nice things!
We need to live in prosperity not only for our blessings but to bless others!
How can you help someone else if you can’t help yourself?
God wants us to be a blessing – not just need one!
God is not in need, lack, struggling – He is a blessed God!
God has released/imparted blessings to our lives!
God blesses us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places!
His promises are for all of us who believe!
We are highly favored!
We all have a God given destiny that we are called to pursue, which will lead us to a blessed life!
God made us in His image and gave us dominion over the earth! (Genesis 1:26)
God’s strategy for your life is to bless you and multiply you!
When God blesses you, you can be a blessing to others!
The goal of the Kingdom is about getting people into the Kingdom!
Religion separates people into different categories and levels, according to our vices, situations, struggles, etc.
When we come together in unity, we command the blessings of God in our life!
When people of God come together in unity, things can change!
We need to be obedient to the Word of God to receive blessings!
Disobedience is a blessing blocker!
The Word of God does not change! God does not change!
His Word says He will open the windows of heaven and pour out on you in abundance all kinds of good things.
His Word says “Return to me and I will Return to you! (Malachi 3:6-10)
You cannot be “part-time” with God, only coming to Him when you need something.
Do you ever worship God, just because He is God?
When you don’t Return to God – When you don’t Tithe, you bring curses on your finances!
You curse yourself when you don’t support the storehouse!
God calls us to live in the overflow! We need a corporate overflow!
When God pours out a corporate blessing, He blesses the house and all those that support the house!
The power of a corporate blessing comes from the seed planted by people of God who flow together in unity!
We have to learn to be givers, in order to walk in the blessings God has in store for us! (Deuteronomy 28:2)
We need to give ourselves to the great call of God to see our community changed!
We need to be Kingdom Distributors of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
We cannot push the vision of the house forward on limited income.
Tithing is giving back the first 10% that God puts in your hands!
Your Tithe belongs to the Lord!
Tithing is an act of worship!
When you don’t Tithe, you are robbing God!
God opens up our windows so we can receive and become Kingdom Distributors!
God will break you out of your containment when you Tithe!
The blessings of the Lord adds no sorrow! (Proverbs 10:22)
Cast down high thoughts … 2nd Corinthians 10:5
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Renew your mind to know God’s will for your life … Romans 2:12
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
God made us in His image … Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Return to me and I will Return to you … Malachi 3:6-10
6 “For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed. 7 From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my statutes and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says the Lord of hosts. But you say, ‘How shall we return?’ 8 Will man rob God? Yet you are robbing me. But you say, ‘How have we robbed you?’ In your tithes and contributions. 9 You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing me, the whole nation of you. 10 Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
Blessings will overtake you … Deuteronomy 28:2
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
Riches without sorrow … Proverbs 10:22
The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.
