    OBEDIENCE: Being Ready

    OBEDIENCE: Being Ready

    "...being ready to punish disobedience after your own obedience has been fulfilled." 2 Corinthians 10:6
    This verse caught my eye recently while writing another message and I wanted to come back and review this because it makes a very powerful statement. What is more, it makes absolute sense. How can we take authority over any situation we face unless our obedience has been fulfilled. If we are deficient in our own obedience, requiring others to be obedient to us would be a futile effort if we do not do what we are requiring of others. Many of us already know about this. I've had the experience as I grew up in my own household. It was "Do what I tell you and not what I do" attitude of authority. Is it no wonder that children often grow up despising authority and do worse than the example they saw.

    As it is in the natural, so it is in the spiritual. A person cannot take authority over a sinful practice they are actively or submissively engaged in themselves. First their own obedience to the Spirit of God must be put into alignment with God's will before they can command those evil spirits.

    In order to increase your own authority in Christ, become submissive to Him and let Him clear your own land of your life of all those evil tendencies, weeds, wild animals and demons. Once your own obedience has reached fulfillment, then and only then will you be able to successfully stand against those powers of darkness in other people's lives. Remove the beam from your own eye to better see and remove the sliver in your brother's eye.

    Soon after I received the Lord in 1976, I started receiving prophetic visions and warnings about the future of the church and the United States. I share my visions on my Hidden Manna websites and offer free of charge my two ebooks entitled “Hidden Manna” and “Hidden Manna 2”.
