In a recent bible study, we were going over Matthew chapter 10 which speaks on Jesus calling the 12 disciples and giving them power and thus making the 12 disciples the 12 apostles.
And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
Now the names of the twelve apostles are these.......
Now apparently, the biggest difference between a disciple and an apostle seems to be a little power! How often we hear not to judge, but on the contrary the apostles were often told to judge.
And when ye come into a house, salute it.
And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it:
but if it be NOT worthy, let your peace return unto you.
If an apostle of JESUS CHRIST were to enter your house, would it be judged worthy? Would the members of your house receive the words of an apostle or would the apostle have to leave and shake the dust from his feet?
And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words,
when ye depart out of that house, or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
Verily I say unto you,It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha
in the day of judgement, than for that city.
Living for Jesus is a constant battle, and if you quit fighting, be sure to devil will quickly move in!
Judge your own house and trust what God is telling you! Clean up the mess and get it out of the house! Remember this, the kids are the kids and you are the authority.
Think NOT that I am come to send peace on the earth:
I came NOT to send peace, BUT a sword.
For I am come to set a man at variance against his father,
and the daughter against the mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
He that loveth father or mother more than Me is NOT worthy of Me;
and he that loveth son or daughter more than Me is NOT worthy of Me.
And he that taketh NOT his cross, and followeth after Me, is NOT worthy of Me.
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for My sake shall find it.
It's time to tighten up!
He's coming back for His People sooner than you think!
Have a blessed day and be SURE to tell someone on the job about JESUS!
