Seasons

This series contains some amazing practical truths from the Word of God. There are seasons in life. Every season in life has a PURPOSE and a FUNCTION. If I know what season I'm in, I can be fruitful in my season!

Wintertime is a season of ending. Sometimes there are things that need to end in order to make way for something new. 

The heart of this message is on how wintertime is a season in which I can expect to receive revelation of my own heart. Spiritual wintertime is a season in which I can deal with character flaws before they impact future harvests.

Why is it that I am more acquainted with sowing in springtime and with persevering through hardship of spiritual summertime than I am with harvesting success in my spiritual autumn?

This is the heart of message #7 in this series. Pastor looks at 3 primary causes for harvest failure:
  1. I don't recognize my season (Luke 19:41-44)
  2. I abort or sabotage my own season (Deuteronomy 1:22-36)
  3. I don't put God first in my life (Haggai 1:2-11)
Pastor concludes with a very simple formula for success:
MY OBEDIENCE + GOD'S TIMING = SUCCESS at HARVEST TIME

In this message, Pastor Joel continues the series by looking at the second season in a cycle. Spiritual summertime is all about two things:
  1. PERSEVERANCE (endurance; James 1:2-8)
  2. PREPARATION (how am I preparing for my miracle?)

In this message, Pastor Joel begins to teach on the seasons in life which do come and go in cycles. Spiritual Springtime is a time of:
  • New beginnings
  • Sowing seed
  • Planting
  • Increasing light
Spiritual springtime is a season in life when something new and fresh is beginning.

In Message #4 pastor preaches on the importance of living in-season. 
  • There are some seasons in life that I am not meant to return to. 
  • My efforts to get back to some past seasons will cause me to be unfruitful in my present season. 
  • My future is determined by my present. 
  • An example of a man who got this wrong is King Saul (1 Samuel 15-18).
  • An example of a man who got this correct is Joseph (Genesis 37, 39-48, 50).

In Message #3 we look at how we can discern a change in seasons. We also look at the season in life in which God delivers us from bitterness. Sometimes God takes us through dry places in life in order to show us what He sees deep down inside of us. 

Seasons #2 - Committed

In Message #2 we look at 4 ways that the devil tries to lure a Christian into compromise:
  1. Serve the Lord "within the land"
  2. Serve the Lord, but just don't go very hard after God
  3. Adults only: devil doesn't care if you go to heaven if he can take your kids to hell!
  4. No resources: if he can't get you or your kids, he'll go after your resources

Message #1 has some important core principles: 
  • Events in life initiate Processes in life. 
  • Events are open doors; Processes are roads that take us places in life!
  • God is all about the Processes in life. 
  • Processes need development.
  • Development of Processes happens in a context called SEASONS.
  • In the life of a Christian there is a season of new birth that begins right after that person is born again.
