There_Is_No_Authority_But_Yourself 2

THERE HAS BEEN AN ONSLAUGHT AGAINST SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY OVER THE LAST FEW DECADES AND NOW WE HAVE PRODUCED A GENERATION THAT RECOGNIZES NO SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY.

They are easy to identify:

  1. They have no Pastor or Spiritual Authority
  2. They do whatever they desire without honor
  3. They pop from church to church 
  4. They cannot and will not receive correction

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THIS? 

“I ONLY YIELD TO GOD!”

“NOBODY IS GOING TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO!”

“I SUBMIT TO GOD, NOT TO A MAN!”

Why make such and issue – it is just the way things are and our generation……

Why can this be identified as a demonic attack to disembowel the Believers from doing God’s will?

AUTHORITY IS THE KEY TO RELEASING THE POWER OF GOD!

Confidence is not authority because confidence can come from man and his perceived abilities.

AUTHORITY CAN ONLY BE GRANTED – BESTOWED – ENTRUSTED.

The key is that you can only be trusted with authority if you are submitted to the authority.

WHERE THERE IS NO GENUINE SUBMISSION THERE CAN BE NO DELEGATED AUTHORITY. 

So keeping the body of Christ out of submission equals that lack of authority which releases the power of heaven to earth.

On earth Jesus has set up His authority in His Church

  1. Jesus is the head of the church (Divine Authority granted Matt. 28:18).  Eph. 1:22
  2. Jesus set up gifts (His delegated Divine Authority). Eph. 4:11
    1. When a person is unwilling to submit to the authority that was delegated to them by the Head of the Church, then how can they receive authority to act on behalf of heaven. Heb. 13:17

“Power without authority is witchcraft – it’s how the devil operates”  Renny McClean

THE DEVIL IS A SLY OL’ FOX – are you submitted to Jesus first, the delegated authority second, or are you a powerless believer who makes no supernatural impact on this planet?

change

The two things that NEVER CEASE are TIME & CHANGE!

When a leader is unwilling to CHANGE then they produce people that will NOT CHANGE.

The challenge is not just changing, but changing at the correct timing.

When we change things too early we create havoc and premature action that can hobble the horse.

When we change things too late we are always reacting and never moving forward in vision.

WHY DO LEADERS AND PEOPLE HATE CHANGE SO MUCH?

  1. It is fearful to move from stability to the unknown.
  2. People hate losing control.
  3. People are afraid of how they will be affected.
  4. Leaders are concerned about failure.

LEADERS THAT CREATE CHANGE ARE CHALLENGING THEIR STAFF!

HOW DO I BRING CHANGE?

  1. Be strategic!
  2. Ask certain questions like, “Does this change keep to the vision?”
  3. Is the change able to be conveyed clearly?
  4. Do we have the resources to complete the change?
  5. Is the staff able to fulfill the needed process for the change?
  6. IS IT THE CORRECT TIMING FOR THE CHANGE?

Change is a God thing.

God does not change in His nature and character – Mal. 3:6, I am the LORD, and I do not change.

BUT

HOW JESUS HAS WORKED WITH MANKIND HAS CHANGED WITH PERFECT TIMING.

Create a culture of change to infiltrate your ministry or business.  When you and your staff feed on it, moving forward in the vision is much easier.

is-it-worth-it

IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN MINISTRY FOR ANY PERIOD OF TIME YOU HAVE ASKED YOURSELF THAT QUESTION!

The money is not good enough to stay!

The impact on your family!

The Judas kisses!

THERE IS EVERY GOOD REASON TO GET OUT AND JUST BE A NORMAL PERSON ON THE EARTH AGAIN.

BUT…….

You are called!

You are part of the 5 fold ministry gifts to the church!

Paul said it this way in 1 Cor. 9:16, Yet preaching the Good News is not something I can boast about. I am compelled by God to do it. How terrible for me if I didn’t preach the Good News!

IS MINISTRY WORTH IT?

YES!!!!!!!!!!!

A resounding YES.

If we as ministers place our worth in the people, or our position then we are doomed for horrific pain and disappointment, but if we PLACE OUR WORTH IN JESUS then when the “not worth it” moments come…..WE KNOW OUR VALUE TO THE ONE WHO PLACED US IN THIS CALLING.

You are the mouthpiece of Christ on this planet and the devil would love to disconnect you from your PURPOSE AND DESTINY.  You are the target for discouragement, but you and I even in the midst of the emotional moment can declare, Phil. 1:6, And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

NEVER ALLOW THE DIS TO TAKE OVER YOUR COURAGE PREACHER!

Your feet are blessed and they need to hear the Word to be free.

THE JUDAS KISSES ARE WORTH IT if one turns and remains in His kingdom.

Jesus was kissed – Judas

Paul was kissed – Demas

YOU AND I WILL BE KISSED, BUT DETERMINE YOU WILL KEEP THE DIS OUT OF YOUR COURAGE!

Josh. 1:7, Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.
