It’s Time To Move Forward


It’s time to leave that thought process. I’m trying to depart right now from the one of the most discouraging seasons of my life. Mt. Carmel Illinois Church I don’t know why. I don’t even know what’s going on. I don’t want it to happen, but it’s just mental. It’s an onslaught.

The enemy tries to discourage me constantly. Last week during this second service I was preaching during the service, and I’m hearing voices. You are killing it. It’s not killing it in a good way. It’s terrible. Stop. I mean it was like, I’m trying to keep going, but in my mind it’s telling me just get off the stage. As soon as I get off, I go home overwhelmed with discouragement. Overwhelmed, like terrible. So bad. But God’s saying, depart, depart.

Don’t wait until you feel like you’ve departed. Depart. It’s time to move forward, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church

I can wait till I feel free or I can believe I am free by the blood of Jesus. Mt. Carmel Illinois Church  I can wait until those voices stop or I can grab a hold of the other voice, the other freedom. See, God’s done just calling me to get out of something. He’s calling me into something.


God Calls Us Into Something


So, I have to get a vision for what he’s calling me to, and when I have a vision of what he’s calling me to, then I will leave that behind and say, your voices can still stay. But I’m departing my Haran. So I’m saying today with all the accountability, I’m leaving Haran. I’m leaving that one. There could be other ones that I’m still dealing with. Here’s what I felt like God wanted to do. I know persuasive words of man’s wisdom, no flashy, whatever. I’m just supposed to pray, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church

I’m going to open up the alter and I believe there’s some things that you are dwelling in you that God says it’s time to depart. You’re going to give it to Jesus and say, I’m done feeling that way. I’m done with that lie. Mt. Carmel Illinois Church  I’m done with that deception.

I’ve done with that mindset. I’m done with that condemnation. I’m done with that habit. I’m departing that Haran, I’m not going to stay there. There are some relationships you should leave behind and some friends that maybe you should leave behind.

Well, I don’t want to leave them behind you. I want to bring them with me. That’s fine. As long as they’re called to go with you, but if they’re not going to go with you, then they’re going to keep you somewhere you don’t want to be, and when you’re stuck, and don’t know how to get out of it and you have die to some things.

Terah had to die before Abraham could move forward. Mt. Carmel Illinois Church There are some things that we have to die to before we’re going to move forward.

There may be some offense as you need to die to, or some unforgiveness you need to put on this altar and say, “Jesus, I want out of my Haran.” It was so powerful in the first service, people just coming and just saying, I’m departing. I’m departing this mindset.

I’m departing what people think about me. I’m departing other people’s approval. I’m getting out of Haran. I’ve lived here, and dwelled here too long. I’m departing. This is my invitation.
