God wants us to have children.
God wants us to grow. We need to take some tracts outside and grow. Encourage people to receive Jesus.
You either grow, or you die.
We need to be constantly filled with the Holy Spirit because we leak.
Eph 5:18 – And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit.
Every man must cut his own beam. The house of God is not made with boards, it is made with spirits. Have children! Tell people about Jesus.
God is looking for people who will go. It is so easy not to go. Sometimes you have to leave your family. But you have to listen to God, and go.
Yes you must go, but don’t go without God.
If you are going to do anything for God you need to go with God. We cannot go without God. Good news is, God is willing to go with us if we’re willing to go.
Have you lost God’s power in your life?
Have you lost the fire to tell someone about your life.
Reasons why an axe head falls off :
1. Lose morals.
2. Dryness of the Spirit.
4. Unprotected axe head (unforgiveness),
There are places on the Internet you shouldn’t go, because you don’t want to lose the axe head.
How to keep your axe head
1 Cor 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
For God, you need to lay aside every weight, things you don’t need.
Perish & die
Perish – go to hell
Die – body dies.
Has your axe head taken off?
Go back to where it fell. Repent.
The axe handle represents the cross.
There’s only one thing that’s going to get the anointing for you – go to the cross!
We need to direct people to the cross. Go to the cross and forgiveness will be received.
Elisha didn’t criticize him for the lost axe head, he simply told him, reach out and take it.
If you come to the cross, you’ll begin to build the church God wants you to build. The church of Jesus needs you.
If revival doesn’t start in you, it’s not going to start anywhere. We need the power of God in our lives.
