The Finishing Grace

Ezra 3:8-13, Ezra 4:1-6, Ezra 4:12-24, Ezra 5:1-2

Four reigns opposed the work of the LORD.

  • The devil will oppose anything concerning the children of God.

Factors That Bring Opposition

  1. No income
  2. Bad politics in government
  3. Pulling out of donor support
  4. Lack of markets
    • You produce products but don’t have anywhere to sell
  5. Death of a spouse
  6. End of a marriage
  7. Loss of a job
  8. Discouragement by people
    • People will come to you and say they’ve tried what you’re doing and it doesn’t work
  9. Wrong partnerships
    • For example, doing business with the wrong person
  10. Robberies
    • You put your resources in one place and someone comes and takes everything
  11. Insufficient power supply
  12. Bad debts

We need finishing Grace so that whatever we start, we will finish and eat the fruits of our labor

We can have big dreams/visions and not implement them, or implement them but not finish.

Zechariah 4:1-7, Zechariah 4:8-14

  • The two anointed ones in verse 14 represent Jesus and the Holy Spirit
  • The two anointed ones are there to strengthen you
  • There is enough help and the lamp will not go out
  • Your progress wont be dependent on the environment.

Phillipians 1:6

  • God sees your desires, He sees your efforts
  • The same hands that begun will finish
  • There is enough Grace/Anointing for everything you want to do
