Pastor Jason had an Encounter with God in prayer and God gave him the vision saying this, “I’ve heard the cries of the people, I am sending you to the Pharaoh of Whittier to tell that Pharaoh, “Your time is up, you got to let my people go.” #Savesouls #Makedisciples
1. God Gave His Vision To Pastor Jason, Pastor Jason said, “Yes”
Matthew 9:36-38 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Joel 2:7-8 They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war, Everyone marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; Every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down.
2. God Gave Pastor Jason a Command, ‘Son, Raise Me an Army’
a. My Testimony of laying my dream down and saying yes to a bigger dream (God’s dream) #surrender
It was an all or nothing kind of deal, no plan B
God wanted all of my heart, all of my life, all of my focus, and he required my purpose to be consumed by His purpose.
In the beginning we didn’t have thousands of people, we didn’t have multiple buildings, we didn’t have lots of finances, but we had a vision from God and God called us to be ground breakers.
Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope
We have to let all selfish ambitions die
Surrender, Surrender, Surrender then everything flows
John 12:24 Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. Listen Intently (earnest and eager attention) to Pastor Jason’s directions
b. Listen Intently (earnest and eager attention)
c. Write it all down, keep it in front of you, & bring it up to others
d. Get it done at all costs
2 Sam 23:15-17 And David said with longing, “Oh, that someone would give me a drink of the water from the well of Bethlehem, which is by the gate!” 16 So the three mighty men broke through the camp of the Philistines, drew water from the well of Bethlehem that was by the gate, and took it and brought it to David. Nevertheless he would not drink it, but poured it out to the Lord. 17 And he said, “Far be it from me, O Lord, that I should do this! Is this not the blood of the men who went in jeopardy of their lives?” Therefore he would not drink it.
