You Don’t Have a Past, You Have a Purpose

This message is inspired. It will touch your spirit. It will cause your faith to rise.

Faith cometh by hearing and hearing the Word of God. 

God has an ultimate purpose for you. You have to understand about purpose. Purpose and destiny are two different things. God says for His purpose you were created. 

In the Book of Revelation (NLT), verse 4:11 says, “You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created all things, and they exist because You created what you pleased.”

I asked the Lord, “If I’m made for your purpose and my purpose never changes, could you please tell me what makes you happy; if I am made for your purpose, not made for my purpose?”

He said, “I’m so glad you asked because you’ve been sincere about a lot of things, you were just sincerely wrong.”

Have you ever had someone give you a gift and you knew they didn’t know you? You didn’t want to hurt their feelings, but there was no place to put this cherished thing. If they don’t get to know you, they’re going to keep giving you a fishing pole or something that does not fit into your scheme of action or activity.

The way we get to know God is to inquire of Him and say, “What makes you happy?”

Happy is the man and woman whose God is the Lord. Okay, that’s what makes you happy, but what makes God happy? I said, “Would you just tell me because it can’t be complicated.”

People make things so complicated. We need to break it down. 

Jesus reduced his language. He is fully God. He talked on a sixth-grade level. The majority of His ministry was storytelling. Break it down. 

People remember stories.

I hear people say, “What is my purpose? What is my ministry?” Your ministry is to make God happy. That’s what you were created for. 

I said, “Lord, what makes you happy?” He says, “I am so glad you asked. The one and only thing that makes me happy, the only thing that I’m in agreement with is my opinion.”

I learned that living with my husband. Instead of coming against his opinion, I tell him, “That’s a great idea, Honey.”

What we have to do is find out what makes God happy. He’s written it out. He says, “I want you to agree with me.” 

Some people say, “I don’t know the voice of God. I just don’t hear.”

You’re testifying against God. 

Quit agreeing with what you feel and begin to agree with what you say you have faith in. 

The doctor says you’re sick, you’re oppressed, suppressed, repressed, depressed, possibly possessed. You got all these things that are going on in your life at one time. You wonder what you’re going to do. 

Look at the Word of God. 

The Word of God says when you believe and receive that Jesus is the Son of God you are saved. By grace, you have been saved. It is the grace, G.R.A.C.E. God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense.

You can’t know that except God revealed it to you. No man cometh to the Father except through the Son. No man cometh to the Son except the Father draws him. 

What is salvation? It is healing, deliverance, and prosperity.

Those are three things you will not need in the next life. Healing, deliverance, and prosperity are for this realm.

Change your mind about all of the negative things that are going on in your body. Speak life and agree with the Word of God.

You’ve got to understand greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. 

God is not going to tell you something apart from the Word of God. He wants to take you up higher and higher.

Jesus came and judicially and legally defeated hell, death, and the grave. He took the keys to the Kingdom. He said, “Now I’m going to go for a while. It’s expedient for you that I go. When I go Holy Ghost, the Lord and giver of life is going to come in you. Where I’ve been with you now, I’ll be in you now.”

God’s original plan was to create a companion of like nature and ability. 

The Holy Ghost says, “I’ll go to earth, and I will do that for you. I will go into people, I will change their minds, I will change their destiny, I will change their lives and I will turn them into sons of God. When they breathe the breath of God, the lame leap, the blind see, the deaf hear, the dumb sing,” 

What’s keeping that from manifesting?

We need men and women who are not just making mental assent to it but are getting up and doing something with it. 

When you get a report that there’s something going on in your body, anything that has to do with your money, with demons coming against you, or with your health, you are supposed to walk in victory. 

Jesus paid the price for all your sins, all the sin you ever did or ever will do. 

What is sin? It’s simply missing the mark. The biggest ‘missing the mark’ is not agreeing with God.

Agree with God. He says you’re healed, you’re delivered, you are a child of God. 

If someone calls you a motorcycle, does that make you a motorcycle? You are a human being.

Can people talk you out of what you know and who you are? Don’t believe what people call you.  

Believe what God calls you, a son or daughter of God. He says that you are forgiven of all your sins and washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Don’t listen to the thoughts and lies Satan whispers in your ear. The enemy is out to dig up the seed and stop your purpose.

When you choose to agree with God, you are triumphant and victorious.

Agree with God. Stop confessing negative words and opinions. Create what God says with the fruit of your lips.

Instead of looking at a person as that old pothead, they’ve been no good all their life. Those words go out. God lives in you. The Word has such power. The devil has no power, except for what the church gives him.

Stop saying, “I can’t get it. I don’t have any money. I can’t buy anything. I’m just poor.” I thought you said you were saved. “I am saved. I’m going to go to heaven someday.”

The Word of God in 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.” 

Everything from God’s perspective has been made new. 

You don’t have a past in light of what will last.

You think you’re not qualified for anything because you didn’t do this, you should have done that, you had an abortion, you got a divorce. Stop believing all those lies.

Those things have passed away. Stop running to the graveyard and digging up the old man to see if he’s really dead. You will smell like death.

Do you think you’re going to be able to draw people who want what you’ve got? 

Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ: and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me, and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly.”

Jesus didn’t die for you. He died as you.

Now hear this. The devil is defeated. He has no power except what you give him. Give him nothing. 

Walk in power.

God describes the church as his bride, the Lamb’s wife. She is not the engaged bride. You cannot be a bride unless you’re married. So quit waiting for some horse to come, sweep you off your feet, and take you someplace where you can eat for seven years.

Jesus is not coming to get you, He is coming to meet you, which means you had best be on your way. The Word of God says you are the temple, the dwelling place, the house of the Holy Ghost.

God is love. Jesus is the Word. But the Holy Ghost, the Lord, and giver of life is the power. He is the dynamite. He’s the explosion. He’s the healer, the deliverer, the defender. He’s in charge of power. 

You’re full of Holy Ghost power.

What you yield your body to becomes your god. 

You are as full of God as you are empty of self. Do not allow the Adamic nature to dwell in your mind.

Satan is trying to remind you of your past. Instead, turn it around and remind him of his future.

You have the mind of Christ. Declare it. This is what prophets do. Prophets hear God and they give it back. They send up the vapors so God can send down the rain. You’ve got to open your mouth. Speak words of power in authority given to you by God.
