Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land; But if you refuse and rebel, You shall be devoured by the sword”; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
Jesus has His hands wide open to welcome all of us. If we repent and turn away from sin, there is still a chance for salvation. Ecclesiastes 9:4 There is hope only for the living. As they say, “It’s better to be a live dog than a dead lion!”
Luke 10:19 Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. There is a certain call that brings Jesus to the scene. Without confirmation of authority, your task as a Christian may be much harder. Acts 19:15 And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?” Take courage and exercise the authority that you have received.
If you want peace, be the peace maker. It is for your own good to leave a peaceful life. Proverbs 14:30 A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones.
The people you are leading are not always on the same level. So what you decide for a junior can’t be the same for a senior person. If you do, would it motivate them? Jesus dealt with people at the level where they were at. When people ran out of wine, he gave them wine. John 2:7-9 Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it. When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom.
You have to manage or lead in a way that suits the situation. Jesus was worried about their soul not their immediate weakness. John 2:11 This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.
Matthew 19:1-2 Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these sayings, that He departed from Galilee and came to the region of Judea beyond the Jordan. And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them there.
No one dare touches cubs when mama bear is around. It comes natural for any parent to protect his/her children. Exodus 3:7 And the LORD said: “I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.
As a child of God, there might be people who fight you using their earthly authority or connections, God is watching. God will avenge for you, people might think they have won. He will come into your situation. 1 Kings 21:19 You shall speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD: “Have you murdered and also taken possession?”‘ And you shall speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD: “In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth, dogs shall lick your blood, even yours.”‘”
Job 32:8 But there is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding. When you are operating in your spiritual office, you must be led by the spirit. Understand that it is not your doing but God. Zechariah 4:6 So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts.
As a servant of God who does deliverance, you are able to walk around people without anyone manifesting but once you enter your spiritual office demons are unable to be next to you. Luke 4:36 Then they were all amazed and spoke among themselves, saying, “What a word this is! For with authority and power He commands the unclean spirits, and they come out.” When you acknowledge the Holy Spirit’s presence and that He is in charge, things just happens. When ministering at prayer line the people you were able to stand with now can’t stand your presence and can’t be at close proximity.
The man who was demon-possessed upon seeing Jesus, he ran to Him. Mark 5:6-7 When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him. And he cried out with a loud voice and said, “What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You do not torment me.”
Genesis 37:8 His brothers said to him, “Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.
Hebrews 5:12-14 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Jesus expect each believer to grow to the level where he can teach others. Paul encourages us to be grounded and built in Christ. Colossians 2:6-7 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
