Possession

Its time to Take Over your Territory

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"And Joshua blessed him, and gave Hebron to Caleb the son of Jephunneh as an inheritance. 14 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite to this day, because he wholly followed the Lord God of Israel. " Joshua 14: 13-14 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Joshua 14: 6-15, Deuteronomy 9: 1-5, Psalms 128: 8, 1 Samuel 2, Hebrews 13: 8, Matthew 20: 20, Romans 2: 28-29, 1 Samuel 3: 9, 2 Chronicles 20: 22, John 1: 16, Ephesians 1: 3, Genesis 6: 4. 

Territory could mean any area of your life, and even though it is yours, until you desire it, it will not come to you. When it's time for you to take over your territory, it's not time for you to relax, it is not business as usual. Sometimes, the devil steals your territory from you and you have to take it back.

Sometimes, God will tell you to do something but you are too scared and instead you go about helping other people achieve their own vision. You can never take over by getting the minimum. You cannot take over your territory by working for someone else. You have to come to a time where you come to your senses and go to the mountain.

Mountain is a place of elevation; a place where anyone in the valley is under you; where the eagle mentality comes from. At the mountain is where the cross of Jesus was. The prayers prayed at the mountain is easily answered. Your destiny is being built and managed by giants which means it is too big for dwarfs. You do not belong to where the pig are, you are to take the land.

The dreams that you saw, God is saying that it is a mental picture of your future and that future is NOW! It is time for you to take what God showed you. As long as you don't challenge it, you can't get what God showed you.

Praise needs to meet at a place of circumcision. Until your praise is circumcised, it is not heard. The circumcision is not on the outside (physical), it's on the inside (spiritual). Circumcision is a gateway to your possession. You must get to a place where you surrender your flesh. Stop trying to make things happen by your strength.

Financial issue, marriage and any area or your life can be a giant in your land and you have to fight and take over it. Until you take over, your generation will not rest. 

Prayer: Father any situation in my life that is not right,  Lord change it.

Possessing the Land (The Next Generation)

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel; from each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader among them.” So Moses sent them from the Wilderness of Paran according to the command of the Lord, all of them men who were heads of the children of Israel." Numbers 13: 1-3 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Deut 18vs 15-18, Matt 11vs 21, John 1vs 21, Acts 7vs 37, Matt 10vs 1-8. Deut 1vs 3, Deut 1vs 19, John 15vs 16, 1Peter 2vs 9, Num 14vs 28, 

Everything in the Old Testament is what is to happen in the New Testament. Everything in the Old Testament is pointing to Jesus; Christ concealed, while the New Testament is Christ revealed Jesus sent the disciples to declare and tell the world that the kingdom of God is here. Before Jesus came, God was silent for 400 years and before Moses, there was 400years of affliction.

There has to be a choosing of the twelve before they are sent out. God chose you & made you where you are today. He chose you to let you know you are not on your own. God chose you and he made you holy. After being chosen, he sent you, so therefore you are on an assignment. You are not in the land you are by your own doing but you are placed there on an assignment. When your purpose is accomplished, he will move you. God sent you to explore the land because he wants to give it to you. 

God sends you to explore because he is not willing to give you what he hasn't exposed you to. He will not expose you to something he is not willing to give you. The main issue is the attitude you have in that exploration. You need the right attitude. You need to concentrate on what God is teaching you and not who is teaching it. Instead of complaining and murmuring, look for the reason why God sent you to where you are. God doesn't bring you to the land to be a stranger but to own it. It is your possession!

 God sends you to explore because of your imagination. To get to where God wants you to be, you have to change your mindset. You cannot go into the new land with an old mindset. If God sends you with an old mentality, the new land will be destroyed. If you don't like where you are, you have to change your neighbourhood; the people you hang around with. You need to believe that nothing is impossible. You need to have faith in yourself and in God.

Don't give up because when you give up, he would raise a different generation. All you need is to have faith in God and you will possess the land. The next generation is one that is ready to change the world and that is what God is looking for. Are you that next generation? If you are that generation, your attitude is what gives you the land and it has to be the attitude of gratitude. Whatever thoughts God put in your mind, he wants you to do it. It is possible. God will not let you taste it, see it if he is not ready to give it to you.

If God asks you to do something, don't be afraid to do it. God did not bring you out to die in the wilderness. 

Prayers:

⁃ Father give me the grace to have the right attitude.

⁃ Father give me a fresh and new mind.

⁃ Lord I am the next generation that is meant to possess this land, lord I have come & I will possess it because you have given it to me.

Possessing the Land

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"Then Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said to them, “Go up this way into the South, and go up to the mountains, and see what the land is like: whether the people who dwell in it are strong or weak, few or many; whether the land they dwell in is good or bad; whether the cities they inhabit are like camps or strongholds; whether the land is rich or poor; and whether there are forests there or not. Be of good courage. And bring some of the fruit of the land.” Now the time was the season of the first ripe grapes." Numbers 13: 17-20 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Numbers 13: 1-33, Jeremiah 29: 11.

To possess something means it is your right and inheritance. God has kept it for you. God has prepared a place for you and he sends you to see if it's a good place, just to see your reaction.

Whatever God prepares for you is good. When God prepares a table for you, instead of you to be grateful for it, you complain. God doesn't give anything bad. You reaction determines your possession. Once joy is missing, salvation is missing. Salvation is wealth, joy, health and peace.  

The place to see your possession is in the place of prayer. If you miss the prayer, you don't possess. Anytime you know how to pray, you'll know how to succeed. When you go down in prayer, you will go up in life. You have to learn to pray for yourself.

When God gives you an instruction to do something and you decide to do your own, you'll see what you want to see. When you are on top of the mountain, every giant becomes small. Giant means fallen people so you shouldn't be intimidated.

Wilderness is a cursed place. When you go down to a cursed place, you cannot see blessings from that place.
