The Power of The LORD’s Presence — 2 Comments

  1. Ps Johann
    Lately, your articles have been astonishing. Rick Joyner wrote about thrones in heaven, but it is not a competition. Rick Joyner observed that faithful, praying women sat on most of the thrones. Nobody saw their devotion except God. If you aren’t sitting on a throne, may I encourage you to sit on a throne (do more housework too!). But what if someone is a leader, how can they lead without becoming proud?

    First, ask the Lord for humility (Rick Joyner also wrote about the mantle of humility, 1 Peter 5:5).

    Second, adopt the servant-leader model (Kathie Walters, 2005, “Word for Australia”). I have modified that model into the slave-leader model. In the spirit, I have an awl in my head. What good could an awl do? A slave could choose to continue to serve their master by having their ear pierced by an awl (Deut 15:17). Voluntary slavery (but see Rom 1:1). If I can help you to sit on a throne, I would do so. The Holy Spirit just impressed in me that the Kingdom of God on the earth will benefit if more people will sit on thrones. I have been diagnosed as having ‘atypical facial pain.’ I suffer constant pain.
    Peter

  2. It is about His suffering, not mine. The pain that Jesus suffered was intentional. When I stumble, I use medication.
    John 13 The Passion Translation
    Jesus Washes Feet
    13 Jesus knew that the night before Passover would be his last night on earth before leaving this world to return to the Father’s side. All throughout his time with his disciples, Jesus had demonstrated a deep and tender love for them. And now he longed to show them the full measure of his love.[a] 2 Before their evening meal had begun, the accuser[b] had already planted betrayal[c] into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

    3 Now Jesus was fully aware that the Father had placed all things under his control, for he had come from God and was about to go back to be with him. 4 So he got up from the meal and took off his outer robe, and took a towel and wrapped it around his waist. 5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ dirty feet and dry them with his towel.

    6 But when Jesus got to Simon Peter, he objected and said, “I can’t let you wash my dirty feet—you’re my Lord!”

    7 Jesus replied, “You don’t understand yet the meaning of what I’m doing, but soon it will be clear to you.”[d]

    8 Peter looked at Jesus and said, “You’ll never wash my dirty feet—never!”

    “But Peter, if you don’t allow me to wash your feet,” Jesus responded, “then you will not be able to share life with me.”

    9 So Peter said, “Lord, in that case, don’t just wash my feet, wash my hands and my head too!”

    10 Jesus said to him, “You are already clean. You’ve been washed completely and you just need your feet to be cleansed—but that can’t be said of all of you.” For Jesus knew which one was about to betray him, 11 and that’s why he told them that not all of them were clean.

    12 After washing their feet, he put his robe on and returned to his place at the table.[e] “Do you understand what I just did?” Jesus said. 13 “You’ve called me your teacher and lord, and you’re right, for that’s who I am. 14–15 So if I’m your teacher and lord and have just washed your dirty feet, then you should follow the example that I’ve set for you and wash one another’s dirty feet. Now do for each other what I have just done for you. 16 I speak to you timeless truth: a servant is not superior to his master, and an apostle is never greater than the one who sent him. 17 So now put into practice what I have done for you, and you will experience a life of happiness enriched with untold blessings!”
