Welcome to the voice of power broadcast with Gary Atkins past her willingness as Christian center in King North Carolina in a postmodern culture pastor Atkins preaches an old-fashioned message under a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit, pointing, meaning winning to the truth of Scripture and freedom found in Jesus Christ pastor Atkins police the body of Christ is a voice and when we declare Jesus is Lord and the voice of power is a recent message from the tabernacle of willing vessels Christian center driver three story of the Hebrew boys and are purged. Many dogs that I could not get it off my heart yesterday so sure about water is just going to send you my heart publisher with your right you will see with more Texas to all right, all right what chapter 3 Daniel verse might start there. Of 22 verses to you and give you a fault, then walls Nebuchadnezzar full of fury is angry, in the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach me shack and Abednego therefore he spake and commanded that they should do the furnace seven time more than it was to be hated, so seven times hotter in command of the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach me shack and Abednego had to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Now I've got one thought for that.
He is all and it's been turned up. I could get that out of my heart yesterday and we look at our country we look at what's happening. We've got potential government that will with fury and anger tried to eradicate the church inspired by Satan himself felt. Silas alluded to in earlier when he says were not fighting against people were fighting against spirits spiritual warfare.
Now there are many who don't believe in territorial spirits. I do. I think that you could see it very evident. God is a God of cities. John Jerusalem, the city of peace Winston-Salem Salem peace. I would like for cities to start living up to their name, but Los Angeles, the city of Angel right all how the enemies twisted that these are God of cities, and when I look at certain cities in America. I can see territorial spirits.
When you think about San Francisco, what comes to mind. The homosexual capital of the world. That's the spirit bear, what about Miami, Florida drugs trafficking addiction. What about the Louisiana think about that Mardi Gras all black magic voodoo. That's a spirit assigned there. What about Los Angeles, California, vanity light, Charlotte, North Carolina agreed, you know, Charlotte is one of the most it's probably the biggest banking industry in America, you know that there's a lot of money in Charlotte, North Carolina cost territorial spirit I could go all the way to King North Carolina. We could talk about the spirit of addiction that pharmacologists spirit that runs through these rule areas to try to destroy meditations that lead to drugs that lead to harder drugs and alcoholism were wrestling, not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world and wicked spirits in high places.
We are in a spiritual flight for our lives. I'll tell you something.
When I read this I think about Nebuchadnezzar, a wicked pagan goblets really came who builds a statue of himself after God tells him through Daniel the prophet that he would go down as the head of gold interpreting his dream to him. He still in his pride builds a 90 foot statue and commands the land to worship it at the playing of music fact. Look with me in verse one.
Let's just read and think about what we are facing today.
Read with me verse one Nebuchadnezzar, the king made an image of gold side was 90 feet first to Nebuchadnezzar the king sit together.
Together the princes.
Now this is important. Don't just read over things look at this. Okay he called together the princes the governors the captains the judges the treasures. The counselor Sheriff rulers of the provinces to come to the dedication of this image, the lives that that's everybody in government.
That's the whole government. That's the whole rule of law bowing down to an image, I'm telling you there's a certain sect of our government and you know what I'm talking about their talking about Senate races and how important they are and they are important because if the whole realm of government with each branch is contaminated with demonic self-centered atheistic leadership. What do you think is going to happen to the body of Christ there already starting already saying you can't have church services. You can't saying when you do go to church all the way to the point of saying that you can't even get together with your family on Thanksgiving and if you do, you better cover your mouth how symbolic that is where you speak and declare, that have freedom, but what you got up demonically inspired in Canada last week, three pastors were put in jail for preaching against homosexuality not Afghanistan Canada. The whole realm of government. But as Americans, here's what we'll do all make a positive will get back to our lives will go back to work and make money will do things that please us that release those endorphins that give us a happy thought for a three hour buy something else will set out on another project and the whole time Nebuchadnezzar is building an image and I tell you what the images it's fear is not a statue that you can see it's fear. I was at a I was at a gathering yesterday outside in King North Carolina where police was there policing the cloud in King not Winston-Salem, not Charlotte King North Carolina making sure people were spread out there. One too many together that I saw the restaurant parking lot doing the same thing in King. Not a lot of among putting them down through doing their job, but it's coming from the top and it goes down to them thought their phone. I'm talking about government and at what point does the church say enough is enough. I still know churches and pastors that have come back together boggles my mind. Last Sunday I felt a brother out here walking is a church which grade I said thank you he says what was all able to start meeting us at Pentecost Sunday brother we been meeting since May and will believe in God and trusting him and he told me that it dear lady of his church passed away 97 years old. She was active up until COBIT started. She was an usher in the church drove everywhere, died in her home and they call it natural because it's not COBIT probably loneliness folks. I'm telling you you need one another. We need each other.
We need the embrace of a hot we need the strength of a handshake.
We need the encouragement with a pat on the back. We need that as the body of Christ, and I believe wholeheartedly that your Bible says in Hebrews chapter 10 forsake not the assembling of yourselves together, as some people are and so much more as you see that approaching what day is that that day is today.
Not the coming of the Lord the day of persecution the day when they tell you you can't go to church and if you do, you can't saying and if you do get to play job for us. That's a hate crime. You can't bring the subject up and saw and started the bad things on Facebook, but clip and copy your sermons. They pull things out. They new parts out and people have made that their church I'm telling you, you are worshiping an image of fear.
If you will to come to God's house as a Christian.
I'm telling you I'm not the same guy was six months ago.
Now you can choose to bow down to an image of an idea, listen to me.
I understand that it's really I understand the people of lost their lives.
Folks, the last time I remember in this country we could do what we wanted to do if somebody's got cancer in the body.
The hospital doesn't make them have surgery that'll remember the making me get a flu shot. They strongly suggested, saying you should my point today is is at what point do you pull away from the image of fear that the world and the government has set up for you to worship when they tell you to worship and when do you back away and said I belong to God's thoughts at once upset a thousand times. Church attendance on lot talk about a lot because I know how important it is Wednesday night with that wonderful Holy Ghost. If you have a tough time at work what you come to church on Wednesday night. You want but getting you through the week a man you'll get a lot more energy being in God's house than laying on your couch on Wednesday night and take that she wanted to spit it out. But I don't really care. I'm telling you that there's a coming day in this country where they tell you you may not be able to do what were doing today and if you cannot come together and not forsake that assembling how are you going to do it when they tell you you can talk about a mindset here. I'm talking about an attitude I'm talking about a commitment did you hear the message last Sunday. Intense faithfulness if you didn't hear it. Go back and listen to it on YouTube. The website is there. Listen to what he says about intense faithfulness. That's what it's going to take in the last days. That's what it's going to take verse four.
Chapter 3 look with me then and Harold cried aloud to you. It is commanded all people, nations and languages that had what time you hear the sound of the cornet food harp site but the music you are to bow down and worship the golden image of Nebuchadnezzar. There were three boys there were three boys and said you know what, I don't think so. I fully believe I'll declare I used to be in government, law enforcement, I believe in authority. I'm not antigovernment at all.
I believe in subjecting yourself to that authority.
But at what point did you say this is too far and too much not allowed a diving into my personal family life, but now there diving into my spiritual life and there's a reason our founding fathers created the First Amendment so that we can have the right together and worship.
Anytime we wanted, and nobody can tell you otherwise like to make laws they can persecute you, and I probably will, but what will you do if they do, you going to worship the image of fear and say I'm going to listen to the scientists because they got all the answers. Please all right. Look at verse 16, Shadrach me shack. Abednego, I like those things answered and said to the king. Verse 16 of chapter 3.
Oh Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer the in this matter.
It would be so our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace to hear that you believe God is able as a Christian tell you something with COBIT 19 if you get it and it takes your life, you still win. What are you so afraid of. Are you hearing me. Fear is a torment. First John 4000 it's tormenting to live in fear tormenting. I see people here right now if I gave you their diagnosis it so you better be wearing a mask, but I commend you this morning. I commend you for living by faith.
I commend you for not bowing down to an image of fear. Please hear my balanced work today.
I'm not saying never wear a mask.
Are you listening to you hear what I'm saying at one point is enough, enough, right, he's able to deliver us, but pastor what if I want of inspire's you know there was an F in their story to you want to read what's one of your do you want to read it hard look at verse 18 of chapter 3, but so they say he's able to deliver us. He's able to heal me of COBIT 19 he's able to protect me from it. But then I said in verse 18, but if not, be it known unto you that we will not serve God.
God's will worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Another words what I'm going to bowing fear is something that you have created going to trust and serve God. He's able to protect me from COBIT. 19 but even if he doesn't telling you is all right by me because I saw some sufficient anything more faithful to me than the government ever been. He's been more truthful with me than the government has ever been. My allegiance and my needed Jesus Christ not help me today all I love that. So then he turns that he doesn't verse 24.
Let's finish with land the plane. They Nebuchadnezzar's the king was astonished and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counselors did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire's they answered and said unto the king, that is true, and answered and said, but I see for men. I notice he did not say I do see four men. He said I see four men who are loose, walking in the midst of the fire where in the middle of it. They have no hurt in the form of the fourth is like the son of God saw what you think about this for a moment thrown into the fire that's been cranked up seven times hotter bound hand and foot.
This wicked leader looks in their and he sees them loose walking in the fire. Not dancing around and skipping around the wearing masking going live conqueror who hears me. I really don't, but they work in the fire and when I read this text I never read one time were Jesus walked out of the fire, which means he still in that fire. That's why Peter said in first Peter 17 that the trial of your faith be much more precious than gold that perishes though it be tried by fire might be found on the praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ hybrid that's why Isaiah said. Isaiah 43 without passes through the waters, I will be with them before. It shall not overflow the when you walk through the fire shall not burn, neither shall the full name Kendall when you go through the fire of persecution in this country very well could I want you to know that Jesus Christ, the son of God is still in the fire with you if you shop with you.
You not only that the Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of believers, and spake, and said Shadrach you know their names upon you servants of the most high God, come forth, come here and they went to them out of the midst of the fire and the princes governors once again the liver looked anything. This is the whole government were gathered together they solve these men upon whose bodies the fire had no power.
Your mother all passed away of which go with COBIT right what her words on her deathbed. They wanted to put a ventilator in her throat. She said Anthony she said not to go. The fire did not touch her. And now someone whose health was falling apart is in better shape than we are living in the presence of the son of God this morning you fire impact upon all persecution did not move.
The apostle Paul that Nero implore the madman.
The maniac of murder got his head probably put it on a steeple and set it on fire. All but Paul declared to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I believe before the guillotine touched his neck that he saw Christ standing is pretty radical here.
My preacher brothers would say menu going too far, 28th, Nebuchadnezzar spoke said let's be the God of Shadrach, one of the back to 27 audit finish. Nor was the hair of their heads singed.
Neither were their coats changed nor the Smail, not even the smell of smoke. My neighbor, God bless his heart burns leaves everyday after walk outside for a second and my suit and I will tell you how much a slight cough and I dwell back in the house and I smell like the thing it didn't take long at all. These guys are thrown into the middle of the fire. They come out. They don't even smell like smoke but I want you to understand what had been bound had been burned off all God like fragility of the state listen.
What has you afraid when you get into the anointing and the fire not the fire persecution. But the fire of the Holy Ghost. It will burn off whatever is holding you back in holding you down. If you've never experienced Spirit baptism.
You do not know what you are missing. You want a boldness to stand up to your employer boldness to stand up to people who said God doesn't exist and is not real and we need to pay attention to what's going hundred were going to need the Holy Ghost. The third person, most of the wood got things to do after this. Look at verse 29.
Therefore, I make a decree. This is Nebuchadnezzar that every people, nation, and language would speak anything amiss against the God of these boys shall be cut in pieces and their houses shall be made at dunghill because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort. Now here's what I want to pray. Persecution is a given.
They could come today five years. 25 you probably will. But you know what I want to pray that the church not just Mr. but the body of Christ. Whatever churches that may comprise of when guests speculate that only he knows what experience an outpouring as such master solace rate today to where the government whether it's the president's senators, House of Representatives, con congressmen and women would look and say something's happening. We can't deny it and it rubs off on them. You believe it could happen.
I do like those Hebrew boys, even if it doesn't, he still in the fire. A man and I believe he's able to save us and protect us. But even if he doesn't, even if he doesn't, he still God, Lord, fill us with your Holy Spirit help us because we cannot help ourselves or I can just feel and see what's happening in our country and if it continues to happen the way it's happening the Lord. There's no hope. We cannot revert back because you would've handed over to a reprobate mind the nation that has failed to heed and repent, half pray that you would hold back your judgment that you would hold back your hand of wrath and fury God and forgive us as a nation has Moses prayed and interceded for all the people of Israel. I stand here just a little country boy and I'm interceding for our nation hello, I believe that your people to stay your hand and pour out your spirit once more and more today. We just confess our sin. If there's anybody here Lord who needs to make a commitment to you to serve you with all their heart, I pray today that they would just hear me and repeat and say Lord forgive me. I know I'm a sinner, cleans me today. I accept you as my Lord, my Savior and my God and my allegiance is to you and I bow down to you today and I declare with my heart and believe with my heart and declare with my mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and I declared with boldness today. In Jesus name, amen.
