Here is the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE. Join us at 6 PM EST.
“The greatest achievement of the enemy is not an active sinner but an inactive Christian unaware of the power available to them.”
Romans 15:13 AMP
“May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.”
Ephesians 3:20 AMP
“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].”
John 14:12-13 TLB
“In solemn truth I tell you, anyone believing in me shall do the same miracles I have done, and even greater ones, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask him for anything, using my name, and I will do it, for this will bring praise to the Father because of what I, the Son, will do for you.”
Matthew 22:29 NLT
“Jesus replied, ‘Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God.’”
1. Not tithing or give offerings.
“Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.”
God will never let His power flow through someone who is stealing from Him.
2. Disrespecting those in leadership or authority.
Acts 23:5 NLT
“I’m sorry, brothers. I didn’t realize he was the high priest,” Paul replied, “for the Scriptures say, ‘You must not speak evil of any of your rulers.”
Acts 23:5 CEV
“. . .The Scriptures do tell us not to speak evil about a leader of our people."
1 Samuel 24:5-6
“And it came to pass afterward, that David's heart smote him, because he had cut off Saul's skirt. And he said unto his men, TheLordforbid that I should do this thing unto my master, theLord's anointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of theLord.”
I Samuel 15:23
“Forrebellionis as the sin ofwitchcraft,andstubbornness is as iniquityand idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of theLord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.”
1 Peter 2:13-17 MSG
“Make the Master proud of you by being good citizens. Respect the authorities, whatever their level; they are God's emissaries for keeping order. It is God's will that by doing good, you might cure the ignorance of the fools who think you're a danger to society. Exercise your freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules. Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government.”
3. Not trusting God to do what He says He will do.
Numbers 23:19 AMP
“God is not a man, that He should tell or act a lie, neither the son of man, that He should feel repentance or compunction [for what He has promised]. Has He said and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken and shall He not make it good?”
Fact # 1 God can’t lie.
Hebrews 13:8 KJV
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.”
Malachi 3:6 KJV
“I am the Lord, I change not…”
Fact # 2 Every word. . .every promise He has ever given you will come true.
Genesis 28:13 MSG
“Then God was right before him, saying, "I am God, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac. I'm giving the ground on which you are sleeping to you and to your descendants. Your descendants will be as the dust of the Earth; they'll stretch from west to east and from north to south. All the families of the Earth will bless themselves in you and your descendants. Yes. I'll stay with you, I'll protect you wherever you go, and I'll bring you back to this very ground. I'll stick with you until I've done everything I promised you."
Joshua 21:45 NLT
”Not a single one of all the good promises theLordhad given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true.”
Fact # 3 God will stick with you through thick and thin. . .till His promises come in.
Luke 1:45 NLT
“Blessed woman, who believed what God said, believed every word would come true!”
4. Being a stealth sinner.
Mark 4:22 NLT
“For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light.”
Mark 4:22 CEV
“There is nothing hidden that will not be made public. There is no secret that will not be well known.”
5. Putting down your spouse or anyone else for that matter.
“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
Ephesians 5:29-33 MSG
“No one abuses his own body, does he? No, he feeds and pampers it. That's how Christ treats us, the church, since we are part of his body. And this is why a man leaves father and mother and cherishes his wife. No longer two, they become "one flesh." This is a huge mystery, and I don't pretend to understand it all. What is clearest to me is the way Christ treats the church. And this provides a good picture of how each husband is to treat his wife, loving himself in loving her, and how each wife is to honor her husband.”
6. Taking the credit for what He has done for you.
If it weren’t for God. . .you wouldn’t be thinking, breathing or even living.
John 10:10 NLT
“The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”
Romans 12:3 MSG
“I'm speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it's important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.”
2 Corinthians 2:12 NLT
“When I came to the city of Troas to preach the Good News of Christ, the Lord opened a door of opportunity for me.”
Psalm 35:28 AMP
“And my tongue shall talk of Your righteousness, rightness, and justice, and of [my reasons for] Your praise all the day long.”
7. Being stuck in a comfort zone.
Your comfort zone is an enemy of your future. . .a hindrance to your success. . .a stumbling block to your destiny.
Mark 7:8-10 NIV
“You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men." And he said to them: "You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!”
