WAKE UP

In Numbers chapter 13 we see the children of Israel making excuses for their failure to take the Promised Land. It was their inheritance all they had to do was be obedient to God and possess it. 

But the problem was, they were unwilling to “confront” their adversaries.
 
God was very angry at these rebellious people, except for Joshua and Caleb.
Read: Numbers 13:25-30, Numbers 14: 21-24
 
We must understand that we are living in perilous times, times of uncertainty, times of testing and struggles.
 
Read: 2 Timothy 3:1-5
 
We are in a Spiritual War!
 
Now is the time for Men and Women of God to step up and be the Men and Women of Valor that God has called us to be. It’s time for the Spirit of Caleb to Rise-Up, God calls it a “Different Spirit”.
 
Joel 3:9-10 says;
Proclaim this among the Nations: Prepare for War! Wake up the Mighty Men let all the Men of War draw near. Let them come up, beat your plow shears into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weak say I am strong…
 
There were Mighty Men at the time, but they fell asleep. Instead of fighting they were farming.Instead of being alert, they were lulled into a false sense of security.
 
It happened to King David, in the spring time when kings went off to war David slept in until noon. In stead of taking care of business, he was relaxing. That’s when he fell into sin with Bathsheba and had her husband killed to cover his sin.
 
When you are asleep, your vulnerable, your not a threat to the enemy. I don’t care how strong you are, how tough you are, how much scripture you have memorized, or how long you can pray. If you are asleep you are vulnerable to any and all attacks. The enemy is after our children, marriages, friends and our churches. Every thing that’s good is being perverted.
 
Samson was the toughest man on the planet, but while he was asleep the enemy shaved his head. The enemy took his power then plucked out his eyes and stole his vision.
 
Our adversary wants to take our power and steal our vision!
 
We can’t lay still and pretend the enemy will just go away, he won’t.
 
“Wake Up”
 
Sometimes life has a way of putting us to sleep and we lose our passion. Sometimes we get the breath knocked out of us; things happen and we get discouraged, or things don’t happen and we get discouraged. Our faith can become weak and we slip into spiritual slumber.
 
“Wake Up”
 
We are at a critical time in human history, we need to be alert to the times in which we live.
It’s time to wake from our slumber.
 
We need the Spirit of Caleb to rise up today:
The Spirit of Boldness
The Spirit of Faith
The Spirit of Perseverance
The Spirit of Commitment
The Spirit of Obedience
 
Romans 13:11 says;
And do this knowing the time, that now is high time to awake out of sleep, for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.
 
Time is Short;  WAKE UP!
