You Shall Not Pass

You Shall Not Pass

We are going to say to the enemies pursuing us, YOU SHALL NOT PASS!

2 Corinthians 10:3-4
3 “For though we live as human beings, we do not wage war according to human standards, 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not human weapons, but are made powerful by God for tearing down strongholds.”

Ephesians 6:12
12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.”

  • How Do I Take A Stand?
    • I must change what I’m working with
    • I need the right weapons to win
    • I need something from above to win what is below.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5
4 “for the weapons of our warfare are not human weapons, but are made powerful by God for tearing down strongholds. We tear down arguments 5 and every arrogant obstacle that is raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to make it obey Christ.”

  • How Do We Bring Down Barriers?
    • Three barriers that must be brought down
    • STRONGHOLDS
      • These are fortresses that prevent my freedom
      • According to this passage, physically it CAN’T be overcome
    • ARGUMENTS
      • These arguments affect what we think
      • Would you agree with me that some of us suffer from destructive thought patterns?
      • There are thought patterns you can’t let in
    • OBSTACLES
      • Obstacles affect my progress
      • ARROGANT OBSTACLES
      • “It’s Not As Easy As I Thought It Would Be”
      • “Disappointment Dwellers”
  • What Is The Method That Masters My Monsters?
    • We Make Them Obey Christ
    • HOW?!?
    • WE WILL WIN BECAUSE OUR WEAPONS ARE DIFFERENT!
      • We will WORSHIP our way out of this
      • We’re learn to WALK differently
      • We’re PUT HIS WORD ABOVE OUR WILL
      • Then we say to the fiery demons, “YOU SHALL NOT PASS”
    • And THEN, we will start to tear down the strongholds
      • We will defeat the arguments
      • We will overcome the obstacles
      • We will BREAK DOWN THE BARRIERS
    • WE’RE GOING TO SAY TO THE ENEMIES PURSUING US,
      • YOU SHALL NOT PASS
      • For the sake of my MARRIAGE and FAMILY
        • YOU SHALL NOT PASS
        • I WILL PUT MY SPOUSE ABOVE ALL OTHERS
      • For the sake of my MENTAL HEALTH
        • YOU SHALL NOT PASS
        • I WILL NOT BELIEVE THINGS THAT ARE NOT TRUE
      • For the sake of what I want to MODEL to my kids
        • YOU SHALL NOT PASS
        • I WILL STRIVE TO WALK IN A WAY THEY CAN FOLLOW
