Higher Powers - Romans 13

Higher Powers - Romans 13

July 24, 2021

Romans 13:1:
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: [and] the powers that be are ordained of God.

This is the verse of scripture that people keep pushing at us and keep saying, well, this refers to civil authorities. That I have to be subject to the higher powers. In other words, I am subject to the governor of the state, I’m subject to the mayor, I’m subject to the representatives, the senators, I am subject to the President of the United States – this kind of thing; that we are subject unto the higher powers.

I know that’s what that verse says, that we’re subject to the higher powers, but we’ve got to find out who those higher powers are.

Now, I as a Christian, I as a believer, you as a believer – certainly you and I just by plain sense knowledge, without ever having the Word of God – if you just sit down and think for a half a minute, you would have to say that a Christian could never be subject to some higher powers in civil authority. We just could not be subject to them because what they do, and how they act, and what they want to carry out is absolutely contradictory to what God says a man is supposed to do. Therefore, just on the surface, we should have known all through the years that this verse could not be talking about civil authorities, about government powers in a secular world.

Consider These Words

Comparison of Epistles and Gospels

Comparison of Epistles and Gospels

July 23, 2021

Tonight, by the grace of the Lord, we want to see the relationship of the four Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, to the Church Epistles. I believe that the greatest literary miracle of ages is the four, the presentation of the four Gospels. The thing that astounds me about the four Gospels is that they were written much later than the death, the resurrection and the ascension of Christ; many years after Paul had already received the revelation as to what the church of the body really was.

Jeremiah

Jeremiah

Jeremiah 15:16a:
Thy words were [what?] found, and I did [what?] eat them; . . .

After they found this Word of God, he chewed on them, spiritually speaking. He ate it, he drank it, he slept it. And this is a thing I've said to you a little while ago. You've got to get to the Word. Eat it, sleep it, drink it. Get this Word. Pound it in your hearts, your souls, your mind, wherever you need it pounded. Just get the Word, because it's only the Word that will ever keep us in the midst of the trials, the afflictions, the situations, and the devilishness of our society; and the future of it tomorrow and the day thereafter.

Jeremiah 15:16b:
 . . .  and thy word[s were] unto me the joy and rejoicing of [what?] {mine heart}: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.

Behold: Psalms 34:1-5

Behold: Psalms 34:1-5

Psalms 34:1-5:
 . . . I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise [shall be continually] in my [what?] mouth.
My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

Two-Part Redemption

Two-Part Redemption

July 21, 2021

Galatians 3:13
Christ hath [past tense] redeemed us [past tense] from the curse of [what?] the law,…

If we are redeemed, then we're what? What a glorious walk it could be the Christians. What a declaration of boldness. What a declaration of the greatness of what God wrought in Christ. We as Christian believers ought to manifest across our nation, in our state, in our communities, wherever we live; he hath redeemed us.

Righteousness, Peace, Joy

July 17, 2021

You see, people, when we are born again of God's spirit and we know God’s Word, it behooves us to break up the fallow ground and keep good seed in there and get rid of all the rest of the baloney. That takes discipline. And, of course, belonging to a society which is almost totally undisciplined, it becomes very easy for the Christian, as soon as he hears the greatness of God’s Word he gets back in that environment, he stays as undisciplined after he has been fed the Word as he was before. And then you get the whole crop of weeds growing.

And before you know it, the greatness of that revelation is gone, and we walked the other way.

Now, you and I receive an abundance in Christ Jesus. And if we magnify that, introducing that truth and that life and keep renewing our minds on it, we can keep these weeds plucked up. But we've got to break up the fallow ground in our life and put the seed in – and that takes work. It takes discipline. You've got to do this by redoing your mind and setting yourself to the task.

The Renewing of The Mind

The Renewing of The Mind

July 17, 2021

The mind tells you "it can't be done"; the Spirit says that with God all things are possible. The mind says you surely won't get what you need; the Spirit says your Father knoweth what things you have need of and they will be supplied out of His riches in glory. In this way, the negative and depressing thoughts of the mind are commanded out, and are replaced with the positive promises of God's Word. The mind is an instrument in our hands. We must command it.
