That We May Lead A Quiet Life

CongressPray

If such an outcome were not possible, we would not be instructed by our Lord to pray this way: “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,  2  for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.” (1Tim.2:1-2, NKJV)

Respond To The Intimidation

ThinkingManThe spirits that Goliath, Athaliah and Michal characterize are still operating in these days. The point of difficulty we reach in dealing with these spirits is that they employ likely human personalities to most effectively intimidate those pressing forward in change. Individuals and church groups will both face the sting of these characters as we come closer to realizing our destiny. It is the human voice that is intimidating pastors and leaders into digressing from what they joyously began walking in just a few short years ago. The threat of financial loss and the loss of membership are strong factors of intimidation and discouragement that the enemy is using. We must face these facts, identify the facts and scripturally respond to the intimidation.

Seek And Save The Lost

JesusOpenArms
As the people of God assemble today may they realize
the completeness of God for the condition of lost mankind
and live and speak representatively that the lost may know
the One they are longing for.

“Indeed, the Son of Man has come to seek and to save
people who are lost.” (Lk.19:10, GW)

The Spirit At Work Within You

Ministering

May the list of people grow who benefit because of the Word and Spirit of God that are at work in you and through you.
“But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.” (Acts 1:8, Amp)

Forms Of Opposition

ChessOpposedThis passage of scripture (“But when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines came up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the hold.” —2Sam 5:17) gives us the general idea that we, like David, are being opposed as we move forward with God and embrace the changes He is taking us through. In this article I want to show you four forms this opposition will take: 1) Giants represent the difficulties of change. 2) Athaliah represents that which attempts to prevent change. 3) Michal represents those who resent change. 4) Sanballat represents change being misrepresented.

Considering The Coming Generation

BabylonEmpireWhen considering the coming generation who have set their hearts
on the Lord, instead of fearfully asking: What is going to happen to
Daniel, or to Joseph or to David?

Perhaps we should be expectantly asking:  What is going to happen
to Babylon, Egypt and Goliath?

”Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me!
We are for signs and wonders in Israel  From the Lord of hosts,
Who dwells in Mount Zion.” (Isa.8:18, NKJV)

Too Dangerous

DavidPhilistines

 

Some people in the Bible had similar experiences with attacks and opposition. When the tribes of Israel got together and anointed David king, the Philistines went searching for him to take him out of the picture. “But when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines came up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the hold.” (2Sam 5:17). They realized that they had passed up a great opportunity to destroy David and now intended to correct their mistake. Now that the anointing had come upon David for his destiny, he was too dangerous. So, a concerted effort was mounted to remove him from any possible scenario which would bring Israel to the victorious state which God’s word had prophesied.
