Tough Issues Show who is in Kingdom Order vs Emotional Disorder

It’s on the tough issues (abortion, divorce&remarriage, racism, politics, prophecy, holiness, etc) that we find out who serves/pleases YAH vs who serves/pleases man.

And Hear this – No offense. Not everyone is called to lead. This is okay and normal! We LOVE your gift, we NEED your gift. Yes you have a powerful purpose FROM GOD. That doesn’t mean your gift is to lead the flock. Everyone has a role but not everyone cannot set doctrinal order.

Some will need to follow the flock and the shepherds and serve God under submission instead of coming up with emotion based doctrines that lead people to hell.

This is why the congregations cannot be led by women, or by men with effeminate thought patterns. Assemblies must be led by strong but compassionate teams of men who love the Word more than they love their own lives!

James 3: 1 My brethren, BE NOT MANY MASTERS, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

1 Timothy 2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I suffer NOT a woman to TEACH, nor to USURP AUTHORITY over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

Song of Solomon 1:8 If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the FOOTSTEPS of the FLOCK, and feed thy kids beside the SHEPHERDS’ tents.

Acts 15:26
Men that have HAZARDED their LIVES for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 55:7 Let the WICKED forsake HIS WAY, and the UNRIGHTEOUS man HIS THOUGHTS: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are MY WAYS HIGHER than YOUR WAYS, and MY THOUGHTS than YOUR THOUGHTS.

Romans 11:33
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how UNSEARCHABLE are his JUDGMENTS, and his ways PAST FINDING OUT!

The Best Leaders have the FEWEST Followers

The best spiritual leaders are on a narrow road, obeying the Chief Shepherds voice, teaching and inspiring a few others to do the same.

The worst spiritual leaders are leading large crowds to destruction by recognizing, appealing to, and profiting from their lust, pride, and ignorance.

In the Bible, crowds were mainly for the initial proclamation. Crowds were temporary for John the Baptist, Jesus, and Peter. The primary focus was discipleship. Jesus never chased crowds or focused on them, He focused on disciples. Read John 6, Jesus purposefully preached messages to weed out the crowd and keep the disciples who loved His actual teachings.

Peter preached to 3000 at a religious festival, and that was also temporary. After that they continued in discipleship in house to house groups and they preached to unbelieving Jews in the temple. That work was split up between 12 apostles, not just Peter. Plus they ended up adding 7 deacons, plus every head of household. In other words it was multiple leaders leading a few on the narrow road, it wasn’t Peter chasing 3000 a week.

The focus of good spiritual leadership is to follow Gods voice not chase a crowd. People like to lie and say that you are only a leader if lots of people follow you but in the Kingdom of God its actually the opposite. Its actually very easy to ignore Gods voice, and lead people with just your personality, gift, talent, psychology, marketing, hypnosis, sorcery, or however you choose. Its hard to just give out Gods Word and see who else wants to obey God?

I’m not saying it’s wrong to broadcast the Word of God or have a large organization. I’m just saying that the best leadership is found in discipling the few on a narrow road. I may have a tv show, but if i don’t have my family or my staff or a few disciples obeying God, my reward is small. The TV show has little value compared to the narrow road disciples.

Feminization of the Army of God

The Feminization of the Army of God: If a good Christian is someone who can’t protect his family, can’t protect his church, can’t protect his community, can’t protect his tribe, or his ethnicity, or his nation (not even spiritually, with words instead of guns), or his friends, or those that are poor, or oppressed, or headed for destruction … Then maybe I’ll just go somewhere and be a biblical Christian instead.

Don’t be made into a bad Example

If you don’t learn by instruction, you learn by a good example. And if you don’t learn by a good example, you learn by being made a bad example. And if you don’t learn by being made a bad example, you die in your sin and ignorance. Read the Bible daily and listen to God’s Spirit always!!!!!!

Effeminate Leadership vs Wolf Leadership vs Spiritual Leadership

Effeminate Leadership Appeals to the flesh

Effeminate leadership works very well. Tell people what they want to hear, appeal to their selfish desires, lusts, and fleshly nature, and you have a great leader – the more talented the better. It appeals to your lustful nature. I can have what I want, I don’t have to change!

2 Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Overly Masculine Wolf Style Leadership Appeals to the flesh

Wolf style leadership is very effective also. The alpha dog rules the beta dog, the beta dog rules the gamma dog, the gamma dog rules the delta dog… everybody gets to be the dog one day! It appeals to your prideful nature. If I exalt someone else, maybe I can be exalted one day!

2 Corinthians 11:19 For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise. 20 For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.

Spiritual Leadership is by Example and by the Spirit

Jesus’ Spiritual leadership style is a lot harder. Its very different. Its based on servanthood, and you have to lead by example. Its also based on God’s people hearing God’s voice. You pray and speak the words of God, and hope that people hear and obey His voice.

John 6: 63 It is the spirit that quickeneth (gives life); the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. 64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. 65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

How to Find the Holy Spirit in HIS-story

When you study church history, don’t look for the great philosophers, orators, and articulators. Don’t look for the men who were honored by all as a success in their time.

Look for the men that were rejected, ridiculed, mocked, ostracized, and at worst killed for what they believed and preached of the word of God. Look for the men and women that articulated their reproaches, necessities, and sufferings… and how God reigned in it. That’s how you will find out where the Holy Spirit was throughout church history.

Acts 15
26 men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 12
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Leader or Adulterer? Make a Decision.

This is for Christians constantly impressed by the world: If you can’t make a decision which direction you are going to lead people in, what kind of leader are you?

Answer: You are a double minded and unstable adulterer (man) or adulteress (woman). You cannot be a deacon or deaconess if you are an adulterer or adulteress. Spiritual leadership is too precious and powerful.

James 1:8
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

James 4
4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Adulterers and Adulteresses: friends of the world and enemies of God. Their worship is worthless because it’s not exclusive.

That’s like me romancing my wife, then romancing other women that are beautiful. Thats grounds for divorce naturally and spiritually. Beauty doesn’t determine romance, covenant does.

Double Minded Christians Be Like:

“These is my all time favorite preachers and teachers:

Farrakhan: I ain’t sayin I agree with what he be sayin, but you can’t deny the skills!

The Dalai Lama: that dude is cold… praying in the mountains!

Jim Jones: he had all them people willing to die for absolutely NOTHIN! That’s leadership right there.

David Koresh: he fought to the end, and all his wives was strapped!

Sum Young Moon: his leadership skills were unparalleled, that colony he had was sweet!

Mother Theresa: She’s the first Christian I really liked, she was cool… You know, I don’t really listen to a lot of Christian leaders”

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways… It sounds funny when we apply it to preachers and teachers but many Christians do the exact same thing when it comes to singers and musicians and actors.
