1. Pushing Back the Darkness!...Installment
    Part 10: "Thriving in Babylon"
    (By: Alexis Muscarella)

    If an enemy wants to take the rule he must break up the rulers to keep them from applying themselves to maturity!

    In both cases we must demolish arguments and computations we’ve made and submit ourselves to Jesus! We must realign ourselves to the Words, written and spoken, of God... And not live by our own perceptions, inner vows and strongholds...So that we can effectively and aggressively rend the darkness around us in our warfare for the souls of mankind... because...“People whose minds are made up to advance the kingdom of God take their objectives by force...”–Jesus, Mt 11.12

    It is impossible but that offenses will come. Lk 17:1

    The enemy...is after our witness to the world...
    It is impossible but that offenses will come. Lk 17:1

    The enemy...is after our intimacy with God by...
    We are going to make intimacy with God a priority now so that even if one day it was the matter of life and death, we would be so conditioned to doing the right thing, nothing would phase us.

    Integrity Activation...
    “Lord, how has the enemy come to assault my witness to the world?”
    “Lord, how has the enemy come to assault my intimacy with You?”
    “Lord, what are the seemingly insignificant areas of integrity that are setting me up for success or
    failure?”
    “Lord, what does my repentance in those areas look like?”

  2. Pushing Back the Darkness!
    Pt. 9 "The Two Most Important God Ordained Relationships on Earth and the Pathway to Transformation!"
    (By: Cere Muscarella)

    “People whose minds are made up to advance the kingdom of God take their objectives by force...”–Jesus
    Mt 11.12

    Previously...Looking at the hindrances of our freedom...Some will not be free because don’t take the subject
    seriously! Some don’t want to put out the effort for what they think is “little” return! Some have become
    comfortable with their spiritual disability! Have “reasonings” for it! Someone else’s blessing! Then there are
    those who don’t know they’ve been taken in a snare!

    And when you find yourself in a stronghold...
    1. You must aggressively demolish every argument and submit yourself to Jesus!
    2. You realign with God and His words to stay free!
    3. Then be ready to avenge all disobedience!

    The second most important, God-ordained, relationship on earth is “people and their spiritual leaders!”
    If that’s what He ordained spiritual leaders for is it any wonder why there are so many “blowouts” given what leaders in the Body of Christ are called to do?

    The firs most important, God-ordained, relationship on earth is “husbands and wives!”

    All “earthly rule” was created to flow from the God-ordained relationship of marriage!

    Is it any wonder why the enemy works so hard to destroy marriage and the fabric of the “home?” We must demolish arguments and computations we’ve made in marriage(s) and divorce and submit ourselves to Jesus!

    Marriage Activation!
    “Lord, will You help me grasp the concept You have for marriage?”
    “Will You help me see and hear the vows I’ve made in struggles?”
    “Will You help me to see my mate (pres/future) as You see them?”
    “Will you help me to see my role and my actions?”
    “Why do I do the things I do?”
    “What do I need to meditate on?”
    “How can I push back the darkness today?”

    EVERYTHING PRIOR TO THE MARRIAGE ACTIVATION WAS INFORMATION TO HAVE AND MEDITATE ON FOR
    MATURITY... THE MARRIAGE ACTIVATION WAS GIVEN AS THE PATHWAY TO TRANSFORMATION... IN EVERY
    AREA OF LIFE, ASKING THE QUESTIONS, “LORD, ____________________? AND WAITING ON HIM FOR THE ANSWERS RESULTS IN PERSONAL TRANFORMATION INTO THE IMAGE OF THE SON OF GOD!

  3. Pushing Back the Darkness!
    Part 8: “When You Just Don’t Know!”

    “People whose minds are made up
    to advance the kingdom of God
    take their objectives
    by force...”–Jesus, Mt 11.12

    2Corinthians 10.4-6
    For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

    2Corinthians 10.4-6
    For the tools of our warfare are not carnal but powerful in God for: demolishing arguments, demolishing computations and every elevated thing that rises up against the knowledge of God, and for making a captive of every perception for submission to Christ,and being prepared, to vindicate all disobedience when your submission is fulfilled.

    Last week...
    Opened up the topic on our “strongholds!”
    The rock hard enclosures we build to seal off pain, fear, shame!
    Arguments/vows we make/names we take from the battles of life!
    Walls that keep out all our help!
    Must demolish every argument, computation, thought that is contrary to the word of God!
    Not talking about the power of positive attitude, thinking, confession!
    “Intentional vindication of all ‘disobedience’ when our submission to Christ is fulfilled.” 2Cor 10.6
    If we’re going to be free, we must be free indeed: without a doubt, in reality, completely!
    Surprisingly, we don’t always want to be free!
    Freedom!
    Some of us won’t be free because we don’t take our bondage/ freedom seriously!
    No big deal to have a few hang-ups!
    “Not as bad as...” (WHO?) Is that the standard? “measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, they are not wise.” 2Cor 10.12 Where did you get that idea?
    “My sheep hear My voice and they will not follow the voice of a stranger!” John 10
    Freedom!
    Some of us don’t really want to go to all the trouble of getting free!
    “The things we’re talking about sound like a lot of work for a little gain!”
    “Small foxes that spoil the vines!” SOS 2.15
    “Let us lay aside every weight and the sin which does so easily trip us...” Heb 12.1
    “Let us not be careless with so great a salvation...
    What is man that you are mindful of him?” Heb 2.2ff
    Some have adapted to their strongholds and have adopted their “tags” and won’t let go!
    “It is much easier to believe lies than the truth...Because lies are manufactured to satisfy the emotions. And anyone would rather
    blame someone else for their misfortunes. The truth is hard. Don't fool with it unless you realize that.” –Van Stockum“
    Someone else gets the blessing instead of me.” John 5.7
    We are His sheep, and He calls us by name! John 10.3
    If we believe anything less than God’s words about us/idolaters!
    If we embrace anything less than complete freedom/life is vanity!
    When God’s voice is different from ours or others we must flee from them and draw near to Him!

    Strongholds!
    What you believe about yourself...
    What you call yourself or allow yourself called...
    Has a lot to do
    with how life, purpose and mission turn out!
    And if you have
    allowed yourself to be named by the “Stranger...”
    Instead of your Shepherd...
    You may live and die without ever knowing the opportunities set before you for freedom and mission!

    Strongholds!
    By design, are arguments we make and computations we accept in an “event!”
    By function,they keep us in and everyone else out!
    As a result, they arrest and shackle champions of aggressive kingdom advancement!
    Must be torn down on discovery if we are ever going to know the freedom for which Christ set us free!

  4. Pushing Back the Darkness!
    Part 7: "Demolishing Strongholds!"
    (By: Cere Muscarella)

    “People whose minds are made up to advance the kingdom of God take their objectives by force...”–Jesus
    Mt 11.12

    Last week...Jesus came walking into our lives to begin realigning ourselves with the word and His words! We are called to aggressively advance the kingdom of God...

    THE PLAN IS THAT THE REDEEMED ARE EMPOWERED AND THE EMPOWERED SHOULD BE REDEEMING FOR A LIFETIME! But things don’t always work out as planned!

    Strongholds!
    Too often the sons/daughters of God don’t believe they’re worthy, prepared, equipped to “fight!” An event, circumstance or person has a negative effect! Abuse, divorce, sickness, poverty, rejection, dysfunction, fear...
    We register the pain/shame/fear and begin building a “stronghold!

    Our “strongholds” are the “arguments” and “computations” that we make in the midst of events!

    Strongholds!
    What we believe will drive what we do/accomplish...What we believe about ourselves will determine if we “drive!” So, we looked at the “names” and “tags” we hear and accept! Who gave them to us? Event? How long we’ve had them? How does it feel/fit? Would we accept a new name if God gave it to us? Would we reject the old one if He did?

    Others have simply adapted to, and tragically, adopted their “tags” and won’t let go! Serious!

    What you believe about yourself...What you call yourself or allow yourself called...Has a lot to do with how
    life, purpose and mission turn out! And if you have allowed yourself to be named by the “Stranger...”Instead
    of your Shepherd...You may live and die without ever knowing the opportunities set before you for freedom
    and mission!

    NO ONE BUT GOD GETS TO GIVE US RESIDUAL NAMES!

    Strongholds! By design, are arguments we make and computations we accept as a defense against pain! By
    function, keep us in and everyone else out! As a result, hinder us from being an aggressive champion of
    kingdom advancement! Must be torn down from within if we are ever going to know the freedom for which Christ set us free!

  5. Pushing Back the Darkness!
    Pt.6: "What's Your Name?"
    (By: Cere Muscarella)

    “People whose minds are made up to advance the kingdom of God take their objectives by force…” – Jesus,
    Mt 11.12

    There Are Many Moment’s… When Jesus came walking into a person’s life with the answer that they needed for life! Sometimes He healed with a word!Other times He healed with a touch!Sometimes He added a twist! Sometimes He prayed! Jn11.42 But He always went to work to destroy the works of the devil! And He asks us to walk into people’s lives with the same mindset! John 20.21 Acts 1.8

    Asides on Praying… Anyone can do it! Don’t need a special anointing! Just need to be born-again! It helps if you know the healing stories… The word builds faith for the pray-er and receiver!

    The same thing we did for freedom from sickness… is what we’re going to do to have freedom to minister!
    We’re going to see Him walking into our lives, hear Him realigning us with God’s word for healing and
    validation…

    That’s the way it’s supposed to work… the Redeemed empowered, the Empowered redeeming… throughout a
    lifetime! BUT IT DOESN’T ALWAYS WORK OUT AS PLANNED!

    Keith’s Story! Keith did what many of us do… He let the wrong things define him! An event, circumstance or
    person can have a negative effect on us! Some of us are “stupid” boy… “Ugly” girl… “Shame-full” one…
    “Rejected” “Never good enough” “Hated” “Used up” “hopeless…” “Have to succeed” “fearful” one… “Have to
    survive” “defenseless…” “Need to be better than” one… Jammed up one!
    WHAT’S YOUR NAME?

    Our Mess-age! If we are going to be free, our identity must be found in God… Must be defined by His word and
    His voice! His word is obvious if you know where to look! But what about His words? How do you hear His voice? Words, images, impressions? His sheep hear His voice!

    We’re going to realign ourselves with the word of God and listen for the voice of God regarding our status! Set
    everything aside!

    ARE YOU GOING TO ALIGN WITH THE LIE OR THE TRUTH?
