The Cup of Deliverance
Jay & Heather Bean
Pastor Jay Bean shares about the second cup in our Four Cups series which covers the basics of four key promises God makes for our lives.
The Cup of Deliverance (Part 2)
Exodus 6:6-7 – Therefore, say to the Israelites: “I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment. I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.
The Cup of Sanctification – Salvation
The Cup of Deliverance – Freedom
The Cup of Redemption – Restoration
The Cup of Praise – Fulfillment
Ephesians 2:8-9 (NLT) – God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.
Philippians 2:12-13 (NLT) – Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.
1. Identity in Christ
- 1 John 3:1 – How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
2. Healing from wounds
- Ephesians 4:26-27 (NLT) – And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.
3. Authority over the enemy
- Ephesians 6:10-12 – Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
4. Victory over sin
- Romans 7:21-25 – So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
The Cup of Deliverance
Romans 8:1-2 (NLT) – So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.
Romans 8:5-6 (NLT) – Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.
Relationships are the key.
Proverbs 28:13 – He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
James 5:16 – Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.
