<ul><li> 1. Celebrate Deliverance Based on, Freedom From Addiction By: Mike Quarles &amp; Neil T. Anderson</li></ul><p> 2. How You got Where You AreStatement One I place all my trust and confidence in the Lord, and I put no confidence in the flesh. I declare myself to be dependent upon God. I know that I cannot save my self, nor set my self free by my own efforts and resources. I know that apart from Jesus Christ I can do nothing.The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18,19 3. Paul Didnt Say, What Will Set Me Free?But WHO No Program Set Free Freedom is found only in Jesus Christ. It is for freedom Christ set us free. (see Galatians 5:1) Freedom is the birthright and inheritance of every child of God. It is part of the package. Do not settle for less. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18,19 4. What Ever the Addictive Behavior Is It is not the behavior but the lie behind it. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, 2 Corinthians 10:5 The LORD knows the thoughts of man, That they are a mere breath. Psalm 94:11 God knows our thoughts are futile, but do we? Or are we still trying to figure it out??? The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18,19 5. Deceptive Thoughts and Lies Keep Us In Bondage Truth sets us free and Lies keep us in bondage. It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery (to the law). Galatians 5:1 Most programs are law-based (what to do and not do) BUT if you depend on any program instead of Jesus you are under the law and bondage. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18,19 6. The Power of Sin is the LawAnd the Law Arouses Sin. The Sting of Death is sin and the power of sin is the law. 1 Corinthians 15:56For while we were in the flesh, the sinful passions, which were aroused by the Law, were at work in the members of our body to bear fruit for death. Romans 7:5 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18,19 7. When We Reason We Go Astray Trust God from the bottom of your heart. Dont try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for Gods voice in everything you do, everywhere you go. Hes the one who will keep you on track. Dont assume you know it all. Run to God. Run from evil. Proverbs 3:5-7 (MSG) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18,19 8. The Basis for Temptation Is our desire to meet legitimate needs which only Jesus can meet. The source of our addiction are only the objects of our temptation. It is to believe that we need it to be somebody, succeed, cope, deal with stress and pressure, find comfort and/or survive. We need Jesus. - Only He can meet our needs. He is all we need. We are complete in Jesus. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18,19 9. Deception = Bondage If we believe we need something besides Jesus. We are deceived and in bondage even if its good things Family Spouse Ministry Job Freedom is when we believe we have everything we need for life and Godliness. We are complete in Jesus Christ and you cant get anymore complete than that. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18,19 10. Understanding the Problem Solution the world offers is self-improvement or flesh improvement. The World offers a way to cope, but not to change. The world offers restraints (LAW), but no true freedom. It doesn't offer freedom from our past. Freedom is not part of the worlds solution.Only Jesus Is! The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18,19 11. Most Programs are Fear Based If you dont stop drinking, drugging you will be imprisoned, institutionalized or die.Fear involves Punishment (1John 4:18) They live in fear that the hammer of god will fall on them, But the hammer has fallen on Jesus and there is no more guilt, condemnation, shame or punishment. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18,19 12. Whats Wrong With The 12 Steps? Absolutely nothing, except they wont set you free. What do the 12 steps leave out that is essential? The parson of Jesus and the Work of Jesus.
