ALL MY FOUNTAINS ARE IN YOU

Moses had completed his 40-year mission of guiding the Israelites through the wilderness, now the Promised Land was but a few steps away. Canaan was 60% desert, with approximately two-million Jews ready to inherit it, but what good would this land be without water? So before the Israelites took one step into their inheritance, Moses combined God’s promise to grant them land with his promise to grant them water: “For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land—a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills” (Dt.8:7). I have a question: How could God possibly fulfill this promise when Canaan was 60% desert? Where were these “brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out”? God answered this question in Isaiah. . . .

WHAT NEVER HAPPENED ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT

Let’s journey back several thousand years to Jerusalem during Passover week. This was the holiest of the seven Hebrew festivals that attracted thousands of worshipers. Some traveled hundreds of miles to attend this celebration in the religious capital of the world—Jerusalem. What a sight it must have been! For seven days the Priests appeared in their royal apparel, led the people in worship, offered sacrifices, and blew shofars (2 Chronicles 30:21). Everything was leading to the Day of Atonement when the High Priest would present the blood of a Passover lamb for the people’s sins. Not only was Jerusalem sightly its aroma was pungent.

PARDON ME!

In Psalm 32, David proclaims the blessedness of the one whose sins are forgiven. And he does this in a unique way. He uses three expressions for sin and then employs three expressions of God’s pardon for sin. Here’s what I mean: David called one category of sins transgressions, which indicates “rebellion against God”; another he simply called sin, which describes “knowingly missing the mark”; and the third category he called iniquity, which speaks of a “vile perversion.” Those terms cover the entire gamut of our sinfulness—major and minor. But then after showing us three categories of sin he uses three expressions to show how God pardons our sins:

A CHRISTMAS TRIP

Luke says as these shepherds watched their flocks during the night, the glory of God shined all around them. Now can you imagine that? It’s pitch black and then, suddenly, all is illuminated! Afterward, an angel appears and announces that the awaited Savior of the world has been born and is lying in swaddling clothes in a manger in Bethlehem. But it’s still not over. Besides this angelic messenger and the glory of God that is all around them, a vast, multitude of angels appears praising God, saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests” (2:13).

GOD RAISES DEAD DREAMS

Scripture uses death to identify man’s greatest enemy and there’s nothing man fears more. When a person expires, losing all vital signs, doctors, medicine, and science stand powerless in its presence. Only God can resurrect. But this sermon doesn’t deal with the physical cessation of life, it deals with death of a different nature. The death of God’s divinely inspired promises and visions. I’m persuaded that many Christians are in the gestation stage of a specific promise God has given them. Perhaps years ago He planted a dream and you’re still awaiting its fruition. Maybe even hope has begged you to admit that promise is dead. But the God that resurrected Christ from the dead can resurrect your promise.

UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE LAST DAYS

What makes the Last Days unique? As the Prophets and Apostles described them, they included dark sayings, foreboding warnings, and coded messages. Did you know that the dispensation known as the Last Days has a definite starting point? But equally important, Jesus and the Apostles embedded a dynamic “Call to Action” to Christians for these days that must not be ignored! Additionally, there is a primary message, along with an overriding objective, for all people to recognize. Finally, the Bible includes a preset day of termination for the Last Days.

YOU CAN BE A CHAMPION FOR GOD!

(Outline Format)

Champions are found throughout the pages of Scripture. They were heroes, appointed by God, that established His purposes in the world. And they appeared in the form of apostles, prophets, judges, warriors, kings, and statesmen.

(Definition) Dictionaries define a champion as one that fights for the rights and honor of others. In the arena of sports, champions are those that overcome their opponents. In politics, they are advocates and defenders of those they represent. In warfare, they are those that vanquish a nation’s enemies.

(Transition) For the remainder of this message I want to investigate Champions for God and his Kingdom. And we have many to choose from throughout the pages of Scripture. I want to begin this message by considering some of the champions of the Old Testament. Later, I will point out those of the New Testament. 

I. Champions of the Old and New Testament

A. Champions of the Old Testament
  1. Abraham is venerated as the “Father of the Christian Faith.” That’s because he believed God’s promises regardless of what he encountered. As our example, this teaches Christians the need to trust God and ‘persevere to the end’.
  2. Moses is recognized as a Champion in many ways. (a) He is the author of the Ten Commandments, (b) The Emancipator from Egyptian Captivity, and (c) the greatest miracle-worker of the Old Testament.
  3. Joshua was Israel’s Five-Star General that conquered the Promised Land.
  4. Gideon rallied 300 men and routed 22,000 enemy troops.
  5. David is recognized as Israel’s foremost King. As a shepherd, he overpowered a lion and a bear. As a militia-man, David conquered Goliath, the Philistines, and the enemies of Israel.
Elijah is the great Prophet that withstood 450 false prophets of Baal at Mount Horeb.

B. Champions of the New Testament
  1. Simon Peter’s first message brought 3,000 conversions. As a miracle-worker he healed the lame man at the Temple and his shadow raised the sick from the curbside.
  2.  Paul, whose preaching “made Felix tremble,” wrote one-fourth of the New Testament.
  3. Philip, the evangelist, revived the city of Samaria until even its sorcerer was converted.

The Apostle John was exiled to the Isle of Patmos. But it is there that he wrote the greatest mystery novel ever recorded–the book of Revelation.

C. Champions throughout the centuries
  • John Wycliffe made his impression by translating the Scriptures.
  • Martin Luther of the 1500s fought the religious heresy of his day and championed the start of the Reformation.
  • John Wesley was the great American soulwinner during a time of religious apathy and moral decline.
  • Smith Wigglesworth, Kenneth Hagin, and Oral Roberts brought physical healing to thousands.

II. How Champions Emerge

There have always been champions that “conquered kingdoms, shut the mouths of the lions, quenched the fury of the flames and waxed valiant in fight.” The question is: How do champions get their start? As far as the human element is concerned, what qualifies someone to arise as a spiritual champion?

A. Champions emerge because they Submit to Christ’s Lordship

S.M. Lochrage said: “The hinges of human history have turned on the strength of the insignificant man who has linked his life with the lordship of Christ. Rivers of civilization have cut new courses because of the courage of many who have come under the loving lordship of Jesus Christ.” Lochrage continued by identifying men three classes of people:

  1. People that neither confess Christ’s lordship nor obey His commands.
  2. People that confess Christ’s lordship but ignore His commands.
  3. And people that confess Christ’s lordship and obey His commands.

It’s the third classification that catches God’s eye as he searches for those to champion his cause. He looks for those totally committed to his lordship! This is a key kingdom principle that God’s champions exhibit: they are completely surrendered to Christ and his purpose for their life.

B. Champions emerge because they maintain their personal identity. 

In other words, champions know how to be their self! They don’t mimic someone:

  • There are times when Elijah trains Elisha, but Elisha still knows how to be himself.
  • Moses trains Joshua, but Joshua knows he’s called to “lead the people in” and not “lead the people out” like Moses.
  • This is what God communicated to Joshua when he said: “Moses my servant is dead” (Joshua 1:2). In essence, God said: “Joshua, it’s a new day and things will be different. Be yourself, Joshua. Follow My Law and I will conquer through you.”
  • Paul mentors Timothy, but while Paul ministers to kings Timothy pastors common people.
  • Peter preaches demonstratively whereas Apollos likely instructs in a soft-spoken and methodical manner.

God gave you a unique personality, appearance, and disposition. He fashioned your DNA, character, and intellect. He created you that way so you could accomplish His purposes and achieve your mission.

  • Psalm 47:4 says: “He chooses our inheritance for us, the glory of Jacob whom he loves” (NAS).
  • Ephesians 1:11 says: “In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will.

Remember: God’s champions are comfortable “in their own skin.” You do yourself no favor when you lament that your style of ministry or personality negates your effectiveness. God infused you with your DNA and personality. Your job is to accept God’s creative design of you.

(Transition) What makes champions successful?

III. What Makes Champions Successful

A. Champions “stick to the fundamentals” 

They understand the essential requirements of God’s Word and they live by them.

  • Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:14, “But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of.”
  • Revelation 3:3 says, “Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent.”
  • Proverbs 4:13 says, “Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.”
B. Champions know how to implement God’s strategy for the task
  • To obtain the victory, He tells Moses to use the rod, David the slingshot, Elisha the mantle, and Shamgar an eight-foot stick.
  • To overthrow the enemy, He tells Gideon to stand still, David to move forward, and Joshua march in circles.
  • To secure the victory, He tells Noah to enter the boat, Peter to exit the boat, and Paul and the prisoners to hold onto the fragments of the boat.
  • To successfully minister, He tells Philip to leave Samaria, Peter and John to enter Samaria, and the other Apostles to remain in Jerusalem.

Champions have discovered that God has a strategy for every event and that’s why they are successful: they implement that strategy!

But don’t misunderstand this. The discovery of a miracle-formula doesn’t create a Champion for God! Yes, implementing God’s strategy is vitally important but, as Elisha’s protege (Gehazi) discovered, following a prescription of touching the staff to the dead boy’s head had no resurrection power! So-called “formulas” are always mixed with something more than the formula itself.

(Transition) And that’s what our next point reveals:

C. Champions maintain a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit

The strategy for championing God’s causes relates to maintaining a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit! Champions are closely connected to the Holy Spirit because they understand He will speak, lead, and guide them to victory.

Notice the people that discerned the appearance of the Messiah 2000 years ago. It wasn’t the Scribes and Pharisees that ministered at the Temple. They should have recognized the appearance of Christ, but theirs was “head” knowledge of the Scriptures. Only those that maintained a living, personal relationship with God ascertained the Messiah’s appearance. It was shepherds, magi, Joseph and Mary, Zechariah and Anna who understood the “fullness of times” had arrived.

This is what it takes to discern the mind and counsel of Christ. We don’t discern God’s counsel because we attend church or read the Bible. We discern it through a committed daily walk with the Holy Spirit.

(Example) Notice how even the Apostles failed to discern God’s voice. These were people that travelled with Jesus for three and a half years. They listened to Him, ate with Him, talked with Him, witnessed His miracles, and followed His instructions. Yet, no Apostle understood Christ’s destiny of dying on the Cross, atoning for man’s sins, and then rising from the grave! It was the Apostles’ greatest misunderstanding although He repeatedly foretold these events. And you recall they stood in disbelief when they stood inside the empty tomb staring at His grave clothes (John 20:9). To top it all, their minds remained darkened even though they spoke with angels outside the tomb.

Ultimately, it took the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost before the Apostles could fully comprehend God’s plan for them. And this is what God offers to Christians today! As our Chief Partner in life, the Holy Spirit provides us with divine counsel, guidance, and power for living.

(Transition) I want to close by issuing a challenge.

Conclusion

Are you a champion? You can be! Imagine yourself as such. Jesus said in Revelation 3:21, “He that overcomes will I grant to sit with Me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne.” What an amazing assignment awaits our future! One day, we will join the King of the Universe centerstage and rule on His seat of authority. While that is astounding, God has designed this life to prepare us for that day. We are in “training for reigning”!

God has given you a portion of his Kingdom to govern today. Rise up! Be a  champion worthy of your calling in Christ Jesus. Fulfill your destiny! And go forth with the promise that comes from the “King of kings”: “Lo, I am with you always. Even to the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20).
