01102021 | Fighting for the Promise Land | Allen Hickman | Part 2
Part of our taking the promise land is that God has to cut away or put off those things that will keep us from His promises. That is what the circumcision was all about in the Old Testament. It was about getting rid of those things that keep us from a intimate relationship with God. It was an outward act that reflected an inward work. Our hearts must be completely surrender to God and God will then cut away or put off all that would come between Him and you.

Review:
Word this Year: The walls in our promise land are coming down
God is in charge
Can’t do it alone

Remember: focus on the promise not the wall


I. WHY CIRCUMCISION

Circumcision= to cut away, get rid of
· Establish the Covenant
· Circumcision was a sign of the Covenant
· First started with Abraham receiving the promise
· The Lord did not require it in the wilderness.
· Wilderness living doesn’t receive any of the promises, covenant is not required.
· Promise land living requires a covenant
· Old Testament symbolism of the true sign
II. BEFORE POSSESSING THE PROMISES YOU MUST CUT OFF THE FLESH
Things you don’t need
Things that will hold you back
Things that make you look like the world (wilderness living)
Live life like the world
III. YOU ARE THE SIGN THAT THERE IS A COVENANT

“Who is the uncircumcised Philistine?”

His presence
It separates us: thru it all
His way of living
Living in the Spirit
You are a sign that we have a covenant!
