In the past week, I have been preaching at several different place concerning the mission field and soul winning. I preached at a camp held in the United States themed “Mission America” and another in Switzerland themed “Mission Europe”. As Christians, we must be made conscious of the fact that we have been saved to go out and tell the world about Christ. We sometimes get so entangled in the daily affairs of life that we forget about the mission to win the lost at all cost! Therrrre must be missions and therrrre must be churches! We must bring the lost souls to Christ.
After ministering at these two camps, I made my way to the Lighthouse Chapel International London Aparche church in the UK where I preached about breaking out! Breaking out does not mean breaking out of your house or your room. Breaking out means stepping out of the spiritual enclosure that the devil creates for us. Everyone is encircled by the devil and his agents and this limits us from doing the work of God. When you are limited and prevented from bearing fruit, you lose a certain joy. There is no MINSH33 in the church when the church isn’t bearing fruit! There are some things that limit you spiritually! These things are spirits and they hold you back in your spiritual life.
1) The spirit of miscarriage:
The way to overcome a miscarriage is to try again. Some of us have tried to work for God and had miscarriage or were not as fruitful as we wanted to be. To be successful in bearing fruit you must have a persistent mindset that you will try and try again. You can’t just try once! Some of us are barren because of our inability and failure to keep trying. Some of you have attempted to be in a choir, attempted to start a fellowship, attempted to sing, and failed. It is important for you not to give up. Always remember that a lot of successful people are disappointed people who have tried again.
2) The spirit of acidity:
Every seed must be planted in a good environment. Every ground is prepared to bear good fruit. Some of us are filled with acid! This means that when the Word of God is coming forth, it is met in environment not conducive to bearing fruit. Where there is salt and acid, the word of God is unable to flourish.
3)A spirit of holding back:
Holding back is when you can do something, but you do not do it. It is difficult to love someone when they are holding back. God has freely given us salvation. We must not hold back from telling others about this love of God.
4) A spirit of maintenance:
After being in church for a while, we become content with the people we have around us and with the church itself. We must strive to break out of our comfort zones. We should not try to maintain what we have because we are content with what we have. We must break out of trying to maintain ourselves!
5) The spirit of “Stop”:
The spirit of “stop” is when you stop doing what you are currently doing. The spirit of stop causes barrenness to descend upon our lives. When you stop praying, stop evangelizing, and stop going out, you are operating under the spirit of “stop”. Fruits are hindered from coming by this spirit of “stop.”
6) The spirit of burnt testicles:
The testicles in the church represents our form of outreach. If the outreach aspect of a church is over heated or burnt, the church is unable function properly. We must break out of the spirit of burnt testicles.
It is important for us to break out of our normal lifestyles in order to fulfill our mission here on earth: winning the lost at all cost! I see you breaking out this year and going out in the mission field for our Lord, in Jesus name!
