New Year:  Taking Spiritual Ground pt10- The Recap

Main Point:   In 2022, take spiritual ground for God’s Kingdom.  We are soldiers in God’s army.  We are called to shine the light of righteousness to the world.

Foundational Scripture:

2 Timothy 2:3-4.  We are soldiers in God’s army.  

John 8:12.  Jesus is the light of the world and those who follow Jesus will walk in this light.

Matthew 5:16.  Let your light shine by showing good works that glorify the Father.

Defining the concept “Taking Spiritual Ground”:

  • When darkness is defeated and light of righteousness takes over.  Darkness must yield to the name of Jesus.

This is taking spiritual ground.  

  • When a soul is saved
  • When sin is defeated
  • When a healing occurs
  • When a prayer is answered
  • When we serve and love other people

How do we take spiritual Ground?

  • Prayer
  • A good connection (a strong relationship with God)
  • True Praise and Worship
  • Being a light on the battlefield (thru serving and loving others)

We started this series with two questions

  • Can we take spiritual ground for God’s Kingdom?  It is our destiny
  • Why should we take spiritual ground for God’s Kingdom?  Because we love Jesus

Pastor’s Thoughts:

  • As we end this series on ‘taking spiritual ground’, I want to take a moment to emphasize a few points that God has laid on my heart to remind me about our destiny as a church.
    • It was prophesied around 30 years ago, the HCC would be a lighthouse in the community.  It’s coming.  Get ready to shine.  Get ready to take spiritual ground.
    • God has made it very clear through prayer and confirmations that this church will impact lives outside these 4 walls.
    • And last but not least, As we love and serve people outside these 4 walls, then God’s supernatural presence within the 4 walls will explode.
  • I truly, with all my heart believe in these 3 concepts.  Get ready.  The launch pad is set.  We are go for launch to take spiritual ground for God’s Kingdom.
  • It won’t be easy but never forget these two scriptures.  
  • Philippians 4:13.  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
  • Isaiah 54:17.  No weapon form against me shall prosper.  
  • So whenever we hit a road block as we work for God’s Kingdom, push through because in Christ Victory is assured.
