Text: 2 Kings 9:20 (King James Version)

  "Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people."

                            The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
2. C.H. Spurgeon said, "If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;

2 Kings 9:20 And the watchman told, saying, He came even unto them, and cometh not again: and the driving is like the driving of Jehu the son of Nimshi; for (he driveth furiously).

The word furiously = Mad, heated, To make warm, To show madness. To heat oneself.

There is a world that is furious, there is a demonic intensity that is in the earth today that generations prior to this have not faced.
There is an in your face demonic defiance that is raising up against, parents, children, churches, and Ministry like never before.

Nahum 2:1 He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.

There has been a slogan among our youth for sometime.

"No Fear" Then in an effort to prove it's validity our young people have literally invented new ways of living on the edge.
The enemy has sought through this to destroy many lives, it was his effort to push young people into destructive behavior.
But what the devil didn't know was that this was preparatory to a move of God, and to an attitude and an anointing that was going to empower our youth.
David was a no fear, in your face youth.
He was a young man, a lad, a boy, who loved God, and hated the devil.

You don't have to be 40 yrs old, to love God and be used by God

David was in your face with faith.
The only way to face fear is with faith.
Fear is not just a feeling, fear is a spirit, and the only way to overcome the spirit of fear is by the spirit of Faith.

Faith with a slingshot is more powerful than fear with a cannon.

We are at a point in history where there is no hiding what you are, there is no gray area anymore, you are either a Christian or you are a sinner.

You are either for God or against Him.
Letting your light shine, or you are hiding it under a bushel
You are either salt that savors, or you are savorless salt.
You are either advancing the cause of Christ or you are hindering it.

There was something special about David:
(He was anointed and he knew it.)
Saul had been anointed, but he wasn't walking in the anointing, He had become self reliant.

David was freshly anointed and he was walking in total reliance on that anointing.

This kind of a person, lives aggressively, They do things other more mature seasoned comfort seeking, don't rock the boat folks won't do.

Like track down a lion and a bear, then attack him bare handed,

This is the anointing that God is pouring out on our young people.

It's the kind of anointing that gets in their music and causes devils to stress out, and come out.

It's the kind of anointing that launches them into circumstances and confrontations that look impossible.

It's the kind of anointing that gives them a voice that many Older saints may mistake as arrogance.

Listen to David as he speaks to elder Saul
It's not disrespect, it's just agressive faith.

1 Samuel 17:32 And David said to Saul, Let no man's heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.

The terrorist mentality says " I will give it all for my cause". (Their cause is wrong, but they are true to it).

God is raising up a Holy Ghost terrorist anointing like David had (Is there not a cause?).

Not just sign your petition kind of cause, but a whatever it cost, carry the cross, hold nothing back, give it all kind of cause.

When goliath rose up to meet David, that Holy Ghost terrorist anointing rose up in David

the scripture says
1Sa 17:48
when the Philistine arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

My text says Jehu drove furiously.
Jehu was driving under the influence of the anointing

I believe we need to make the point that furiously doesn't neccessarily mean wrecklessly.
Our first inclination is to put them into the same category,

Matthew 11:12   And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
David was a young man with a Jehus anointing, he was furious toward the enemies of God.
Paul was a man with a Jehu's anointing.
1 Corinthians 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

Jesus was a man with a Jehu's anointing

Elijah was a man with a Jehu's anointing.
He was driven, he was passionate, he was furious, He was anointed,

We need men like Samuel today who can hear the voice of God, and will pour our anointing upon this next generation,
They're anxious and they're waiting for us to give them our training, and lay our hands upon them, and pour our anointing upon them, and to point them and to release them into their destiny.

David was a humble, obedient, disciplined, servant of his father,.
This is what prepared him for the anointing.

Let me close with this: Jehu was driving furiously because he had a job to do, he was a man with mission, he was driven by purpose (he was anointed by God to cut off the house of Ahab).

People: God has a plan for your life, and he wants to take your youth and hook it up to his purpose, and EMPOWER YOU WITH HIS ANOINTING to drive furiously against the devil.

And you too will be known as one driving under the influence, (of the Holy Ghost anointing)
