Listen by the Spirit
I’m so enjoying all these new connections I’m meeting, especially those who understand the language I’m talking about, the deeper dimensions and revelations.
It’s such an awesome season right now. God is moving and bringing together His voices warriors and carriers of His glory to do a work in these last days!
Don’t miss your connection by listening to the opinions of others about somebody. There are far too many people who are missing out on such good teachings, training and fellowship sessions, because somebody tried to discredit, or talk about somebody to them, and they form an opinion from that person’s word and missed an opportunity that God had designed to get them to higher heights and deeper depths in the Spirit!
Listen by the Spirit and you won’t go wrong!
God is doing so amazing things right now for His people. It’s a Numbers 23:19-20 going on! I’m loving it!
“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
Behold, I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it,” Numbers 23:19-20 NKJV.
Respecting Leaders in Church
The Leadership Class tonight in Columbus, MS was awesome as The LORD dealt with rebellion against leadership and how people try to even rise up against those that God has ordained in power.
Romans 13:1-7 establishes the fact that there are those whom God set in power in His Kingdom. Often we disrespect, dishonor and neglect those who have rule in the House of God.
Too many people disrespect the spiritual protocols that have been established in a house. We come in, because we have been anointed or called by God, and feel like we can overrule the established order. Problems arise, because now the leader has to establish order and discipline and most of those who say they are anointed, don’t want to be corrected when out of order.
The Word tells us to be subject to the powers established. We talk to our leaders in any kind of a way, we provoke them to anger, we go out and talk about them, we disrespect their authority, just because we are gifted.
We get angry, because they won’t just let us do what we want to do. We sneak off, going places and our leaders don’t know what we are doing, then when we get attacked by the enemy, we want to wear them out praying demons off of us, that we would not have, if we wouldn’t had been somewhere we shouldn’t.
Often times, we accuse our leaders of being controlling, when we want to be a gift gone wild. God establishes the powers that be, and He knows exactly who we need to be connected to.
Learning how to walk humbly, submissively, obediently and in love, is something all those in leadership need to train and teach. Accountability is a must order is non negotiable in God’s kingdom.
Knowing how to conduct yourselves and having character a good attitude and the ability to listen is what we need.
“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor,” Romans 13:1-7 (NKJV).
