No more forever.

The Lord will fight for you, you shall hold your peace to reach deep word appoint you today specifically to this powerful idea that the Egyptians that you see today the voices that make you feel condemned. In other words, the presence of that Egyptian army behind them brought back every feeling of slavery.

They had been in bondage to those people for all those years and the mentality of your soul doesn't just change overnight go. Suddenly your out of that slavery and they saw the slave masters. We saw the chariots and I saw them coming. Breathing down upon them how to make him feel it made her feel like we are trapped. We are condemned there something wrong with our situation where stock would do. In other words, condemnation paralyzes and possibly they felt and God has a word for us.

When you feel that there is a way in which God not only moves you on toward promise, but his gospel is so powerful that his grace will swallow up that voice of condemnation and it is like this image of light Lord Timmy is like the difference between saying you have a fear, but you can manage it versus not having the feral.

It might be like if you had a nightmare night after night and you wake yourself up in myself.

It's not real so you can cover yourself with that but would be a far better thing to does not have the nightmare at all, and that's what I think God has for us is been something I've experienced an ever-increasing manner, own life when I was a kid, I had a lot of ways an ideal childhood. So many advantages so many blessings when I tell my story is important just to be reminded myself and others that I was so thankful I wasn't was never abused. I was never never neglected. I wasn't I wasn't overly Kirsten or any of that. Like many of you have experience but did come from a home that was broken home that had suffered the pangs of alcoholism minute I came from environment in which everybody my family seem to be excelling in so that's what I set out to do and I filling a lot of friends and by the time I was in high school I II guess I was with the kind of popular crowd apply to varsity sports.

I'm I made really good grades.

I was accepted into a good college I had a sweet cute Christian girlfriend I would've never said of myself that I felt under condemnation or I would've never said that shame was a word that applied to me because I felt like I was more or less succeeding in life's plan. In other words, I was moving, moving on and moving moving forward and doing okay and even after I went to seminary to clinical pastoral education and a learned so much. I still would and not identified. That is been an issue in my life until later, after having been a pastor for close to a decade and helping others begin to take a more honest inventory of my own so and that's when I begin to realize some things were wrong light warning lights on your car dashboard. One of them was as perfectionistic was driven what Liana was working I was overworking and it was out of I realize I need that I had to never let anybody down. I have a hard time saying no to anything or anybody in it was related to really wanting to please people which made me realize that approval of others way too important to me. Why was this the case also had to be honest with myself and say that in fact the matter to criticisms way too hard I could I could have 200 people tell me a message bless them in one person write me a note that was critical and I be brooding over the one criticism loves criticism, but it would set me back now I find myself brooding over why was this the case if I was just on a trajectory and everything was was wonderful. I was moving for Bob's feeling like that also had to be honest that the land was never abusive or anything like that I could be negative towards the people of the most realize it was I wanted perfectionism for myself, but I would often expect the people near me to is if you're not perfect that I might criticize you and that might've bothered me most of all I started wondering why are these things the case and that's what led me on a path of discovering the power of shame that essentially is a condemning voice says there's something not right about you and you've got to do a little bit more in order to be accepted and acceptable. In other words, I discovered about my life that I was exactly like those Israelites there's a Red Sea and I might have confidence that I'm going to be able to move forward. But there was an Egyptian army always behind me, whispering accusations and what happens beloved and and some of you identify with me on this is that when you are experiencing life like that where you might have a sense of some confidence about moving forward you know you're Christian you know you got heaven from that because something is always tugging you backward. What it does is it causes it to be an angst in your soul, and so the picture of these people of God that are Red Sea in front army behind is it they feel condemned by these voices of the former slave masters and so it causes them angst and in the they begin to have all kinds of problems in their souls.

This is what happens when there is a nagging voice of condemnation like the Egyptian armies threat over the people of God and God. Therefore, not only will she do know he has a plan for you to move forward. But in that plan for you to move forward.

He also has a plan by the power of the gospel to set you free from that gnawing anxiety and the nagging voice of discontent. The nagging voice of of of a of a of a accusing spirit that is always hovering. God has a victory in the power of the gospel and is pictured in this Red Sea. There is a relationship between healing and hope that Alan Wright will have more teaching moment. Today's important series from Alan Wright Ministries for quite some time now, everyone.

These are the final days. This offer is being made available to you this month, seven 877-544-4860 877-544-4861 come to our website past Rowan.like today's teaching now continues here once again is Alan Wright if you have healing but you don't have hope. You may be well nurtured, but without destiny. If you have hope and a sense of destiny, but no healing.

You will move forward only with thanks and if you're like me, will often feel like an imposter and something will be withheld in you and what spiritual warfare comes down to, essentially, is this the Bible calls the Prince of darkness Satan because the name Satan means accuser. I want you to understand this, you're in the spiritual battle and the principal weapon of hell is the voice of accusation only if that accusation can find some place of connection in you will you have any suffering.

In this battle because, inasmuch as you know that the voice of accusation has no substance against you, then you're free from it. This is a visual of the Army being drowned by the sea is the voice of the accuser being drowned out by the cross of Jesus Christ because of what happened in that ocean is what happened in the cross through the cross of Jesus Christ what the Lord did was keep paid the penalty himself for your sin and for mine is not a popular concept in today's culture and it runs contrary to the spirit of the age, but our predicament is that we are born in sin and all sin deserves punishment and everyone, whether consciously or unconsciously, is aware of this that we are therefore under a penalty, and in some ways were trying to make ourselves right as most people. Why do you think you should go to heaven and say because I'm a good person was good outweighs my bad that somehow I'll escape the penalty just proves the fact that we feel that were under some sort of penalty because of her flaws and what God did in Jesus Christ as he said yes humanity must pay the penalty.

So a human being will pay it.

Jesus the son of God was a human being God in the flesh, and he paid the penalty and when you know that and accept it, you are forgiven and your sin is cast as far as the east is from the west and that forgiveness puts you in a new position in the cosmos, but there's something else that God does is something I emphasized you all the time.

He didn't just put the penalty upon Jesus.

He put the blessing that should've been reserved for Jesus upon the believer.

So in this exchange.

He became your sin and you were given his righteousness. What this means for us is that the voice of the accuser is defeated through the cross of Jesus Christ. Because we no longer have a penalty do to us. So when the accuser says look your stock and the reason is because your sin. Look, you're doomed because you're a failure. You don't measure up. You haven't done enough and therefore the torture of our soul causes us to be paralyzed in fear. The answer of the gospel has to be simply put, I have been forgiven.

There is no penalty. The remains. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

That is the answer, but the accuser also has another threat and that is that you can't be blessed because you've done nothing to deserve being blessed you think you're going to be able to move forward through a Red Sea. You think you're going to be able to take territory. You think you're going to be able to go into another relationship and have it succeed. You failed in the past. You don't deserve to be blessed in our answer to the accuser comes from the cross again because the first part of our answer is I have no penalty over my life so I can't be condemned in the second part of the answer is I have been reckoned as the righteousness of Jesus Christ and therefore I must be blessed. I am blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus.

And so the reason that I am moving forward is not by my merit, but by the merits of the Lord Jesus that has been imputed to me and I have been made holy and I belong to God, you, and when you have that answer down deep in your soul. You become victorious in the spiritual battle. We show you something beautiful in the midst of this blessing that were speaking over one another.

This new year. When Moses said to the people to not be afraid, standstill.

He then said and see the salvation of the Lord, I want you to know that the word for salvation in Hebrew is Joshua. We know that the name Jesus is a transliteration that is actual Hebrew name was Joshua. The name Jesus means the Lord is salvation what Moses said to the people in Exodus chapter 14 was literally do not be afraid, standstill and see Jesus you realize if the people had wrongly misunderstood their battle and thought that they were going to win it out of their flesh if they had turned and tried to fight the Egyptian chariots by their own strength.

They not only would've lost because their flesh could not withstand the chariots of Egypt, but they would've missed the very miracle they got it brought to them. The battle belongs to the Lord and fighting for you. The call upon the believer's life. Therefore in the day of spiritual battle is, instead of getting panicked on the inside is to standstill to in a real sense grow quiet before the Lord and say Lord I want to see Jesus in this.

I want to see Jesus you know when they went walking through the Bible says there's a wall of water on the left of the wall of water on the right. Some of those Hebrews might've been going with this is awesome look of the Lord's doing now. The first he delivered us out of slavery and now there's a big wall of water is go swallow up the Egyptian.

This is the coolest thing I've ever seen and I just skip them through. But don't you know there's some other Hebrew thoroughgoing wall of water, although that a wall of water on the right were going to die would go to diabetes or are we going to die they just kept falling Moses.

The need was to see their mediator, Moses and the just move on to just move on.

That really is way faith operates is not about you having mental certainty about every doubt in your life is not about you pulling up yourself by your own bootstraps and saying I will believe you know what it's about.

It's about a revelation of Jesus Christ. This is why Hebrews says that Jesus is the author and the finisher of our faith because when you see Jesus you have faith when you see what Jesus is doing. You have faith, and when you are reminded through God's word through the revelation of the Holy Spirit through the of the prayer of the saints to the laying on of hands through prophetic utterances through the gifts of God, the stirring up of the spirit of God within you. All the means of God's grace.

When you have a reminder, a revelation that the cross of Jesus Christ was full and final and finished Jesus had been raised from the dead, and he's praying for you and is alive and he is sovereign over all things.

When you see Jesus you have faith and so that's why we want to bless your life and bless one another instead of simply saying it's a new year and let's all try harder to have more faith… Try harder to fight off the Egyptians. That's not the word of the Lord. The word of the Lord is afraid standstill see Jesus see Yeshua for the Egyptians whom you see today the voices of condemnation that have haunted you to be there forever. If I the time is coming.

You'll see them again no more be free because the Lord is fighting for you and you should hold your peace is our blessing and that is the gospel Allen right today.
