Lesson: Power-struggles

There are stinky power-struggles going on in the Church, whose trigger words include: One Body, many gifts, schism and leadership. Put all of those key words together and you get something like: "Saints who hold their God-given gifts superiorly on top of others." ~WDJ. For example, "You're small, and I'm not." Now, this is the ministry of the SAINTS. This should not be happening in the BODY :(

"There must be balance, saints. The humble man who has Almighty Power." ~WDJ

"That child-like faith that transpires into mountains being moved, miracles occurring-- all under the authority of God." ~WDJ

Matthew 10:24-25,
24The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. 25It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

The above scripture verse is telling us that, only in a house of Devils is the disciple above his master and a servant above his lord. We are One unit. There are many gifts in the Body, as scripture informs us [I Corinthians 12:10, 28].

I may have the gift of tongues, and you the gift of prophecy-- we are both Christ-certified. You are not MY leader, you are only my Friend. GOD Almighty is my leader, My Friend, and He works through you AND me. Even so, yes we are to desire to prophesy, because God says we should [I Corinthians 14:39].

I had one saint REBUKE me, in front of others-- "This is confusion. God is not the author of confusion." And another saint claim, "I am sorry if I have offended you."

All within this week, my friends.


It's not the spirit of offense ["the offended brother," Matthew 18:15-20] nor the spirit of confusion [see I Corinthians 14:33], it is YO' BIG HEAD, lol [arrogancy, ego, pride]. LOL y'all this is what I told God when this happened. I let Him know that I wasn't completely offended. It was more like-- "You're a leader and you unjustly insulted me." I was insulted. It was wild.

In Closing,
I love you in deed and truth [see I John 3:18].. My prayer is that I highly esteem ZERO persons and stay lowly before God. Acknowledging and using my gifts for Good. Lord, teach me to look down upon no one and forgive me if I make any person feel inferior to me. This is my prayer dear Lord..
