The Spirit of God in the Old Testament time would come upon individuals for a certain work and then left again.
Moses had a great portion upon him. He divided this portion among 70 others.
Elijah had a portion and Elisha had a double portion.
When Jesus was baptized in the spirit of the Lord rested upon him and he began to be led by the spirit into the wilderness and onward into his ministry with power.
Jesus had the fullness of the spirit without measure.
For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
2 Peter 1:2-4
2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
We have the opportunity to walk in the fullness of the Spirit without limit as well.
Wouldn’t it be great if all of God’s people lived a life without any limitation in the kingdom of God.
*We would walk in absolute health and administer healing to all around us.
*We would walk in absolute freedom from Satanic oppression and administer deliverance to all around us.
*We would walk in the fullness and in the abundance of God’s blessing, and we would be a blessing to all around us.
How do you live a life unlimited in that which is Godly?
Satan’s desire is to limit your effectiveness in God’s kingdom.
1. You must first recognize the difference between
the kingdom of God
and the kingdom of this world
And there is a difference.
In fact there is a great contrast The Bible likened it to light and darkness.
The contrast is so great it is impossible to get the two confused.
2 Corinthians 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Para– perish- to cast off all restraint and run wild. No restraint. they have no limitation In the world’s Kingdom of darkness. Unbridled passion, no conviction no standard, anything goes.
The more you limit your involvement in the kingdom of darkness. The more limitations are removed in the kingdom of light. You have the freedom to walk in the fullness of God.
Esher– happy- happily blessed
The more you limit your involvement in the kingdom of God the more unlimited we will live in the world.
2. Friendship with the world enemy of God
4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
The world- earthly rule, inhabitants of the earth, earthly affairs, earthly possessions, earthly pleasures, that seduce you away from God
These things that seduce you – this is the giveaway that it is of the world and not of God.
**As a virus affects the operating system of a computer.
Satan’s demonic spirits desire to operate within and against your operating system.
We must Bind Every unclean spirit operating in your system, in your body and your mind and your emotions in your attitude in your finances in your occupation and your family
Satan Wants to limit your effectiveness in Gods kingdom.
Limitation on your spiritual growth
Limitation on your peace and joy
Limitation on your prosperity
3. It is good when God is for us
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Break the destructive cycles of life and release the limitations.
The cycle of behaviors
The cycle of failure
The cycle of limitations
