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?

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.

The most difficult part of leadership is actually believing that you belong at the table!

I remember when I was struggling with this truth, my past and even my present flashed before my eyes. All I heard was, “Who do you think you are?” Our inner self struggles with feeling worthy, but until you resolve this issue in your heart and mind, you will always be overcome by yourself.

We are the ones who determine the height of our success, and that issue is rooted in whether or not you believe you belong at the table.

I remember the day that my mind was resolved. I reached that resolve by actually believing in who God said I am. We have to start believing in who God says we are.

Ps. 139:14, Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex, Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

It happened to me sitting at my table in the kitchen with my Bible open and talking with my Creator. He finally said to me, “Micheal, do I create junk?”, “Of course not God”! The God of creation believes in you, He made you, He has plans for you, He has great success for you!

TODAY, DO YOU BELIEVE IN WHO GOD SAYS YOU ARE?
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU BELONG AT THE TABLE?

RESOLVE THIS IN YOUR HEART WITH YOUR GOD. THEN YOU WILL MOVE FORWARD IN YOUR LEADERSHIP SKILLS.
