In the last podcast teaching we discussed “Algorithm for the End Times: Healthy, Wealthy and Wise.” We investigated the importance of establishing margins in our lives. And we talked about the importance of providing SPACE: not to make things too binding … too tight … too limited. We need to plan for MARGIN in our time, our financial dealings, our work, and our relationships!
We also discussed briefly the importance of control. In this podcast I will share with you more about anointed control and HOW to protect yourself in the entrance to the End Times.
ANOINTED CONTROL FOR THE END TIMES
Previously I talked to you about the importance of having―or, maintaining―margins in your life. The definition of “margin” is “An amount available beyond what is actually needed.” One source describes it as, “The space between our current load and our limits.”
We emphasized the importance of giving ourselves SPACE. Don't make things too binding … too tight … too limited: Plan for MARGIN in our time, our financial dealings, our work, our relationships!
We also discussed an Algorithm for the End Times. An algorithm is a set of clear, precise instructions that can be performed in a prescribed sequence to achieve a certain goal and that has a recognizable set of end conditions.
In this podcast we will discuss Anointed Control for the End Times: Organic Power and Peace in the Spirit. If you have not listened to―or read the show notes of―the last podcast, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise: An Algorithm for the End Times, make sure you study it.
In order to stay on top during the coming days in which there will be great economic distress―and opportunities for stress―you must take control and maintain control of your environment: spiritual and physical. You do that by affirmative action (planning and implementation) and through prayer with spiritual warfare. Get on TOP and STAY on top! You must abide in the peace zone. Start preparing NOW.
Activities. Have a plan! Remember to plan for recreation, rest and margins.
To be a good steward you must be IN CONTROL of the areas, domains, facilities, and personnel:
Over which God has placed you; and,
Over which God has given you power and authority.
The reason you must exercise control is so that you may carry out the work God has given you to do. You must do it the way God has told you to do it. You must CONTROL not only your thoughts, but also your ACTIVITIES. Have a plan.
Know where you are headed: each day and in the future―to the end of your life. You must be flexible and follow the leading of the Spirit. God may want you to change your plan(s) at times, but spend time alone with God so that you can hear from Him and establish your goals: both short-range and long-term (lifetime).
Each day when you arise (except your Sabbath day of rest) have a list already made out with the activities you want to accomplish numbered in order of importance (or, priority). To help you do this, every night, or whenever you find convenient time―although forming the habit of making out your list at the same time every day is best―write down on a sheet of paper the THINGS TO DO―or, activities―for the next day.
After you have made your list, go back over it and assign numbers (starting with 1) to the most important thing, and then the things of lesser importance. Then, make out another list, writing down the activities in order of importance: 1, 2, 3, etc. You may not accomplish all the things you have written down for the day; however, you will have accomplished the MOST IMPORTANT things.
Again, allow for flexibility: the Holy Spirit may change your plans the next day; or, you may find the next day that Item 4 on your list should be exchanged for a position of higher priority with, for example, Item 2.
You MUST control the devil, Satan. Jesus said, “Behold, I give unto you POWER over all the power of the enemy.” – Luke 10:19
Jesus gave you POWER:
Over the demons (see verse 20);
Over the power of the devil;
Over Satan, himself.
This is part of the Covenant of Freedom which Jesus Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah of Israel) purchased for you with His own BLOOD! You are FREE: free from the devil, sin, and the world; and you are free to live holy and serve God!
In Matthew 12, verses 22-29, Jesus said, “I cast out devils by the Spirit of God. How can one enter into the house of a strong man [or, the house of the devil], and spoil his goods, except he first BIND the strong man? And then he will spoil his house.” The binding and loosing power of the Church is one of the teachings of Jesus. Jesus said, “Whatever you will bind on earth will be bound in heaven: and whatever you will loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 18:18.)
To learn more about Binding and Loosing (with practical examples) study the mini-book Your Greatest Opportunity for Rewards: Prophetic Prayer. (It is a FAST READ.)
Finally, you MUST exercise control over your associations. This does not mean you have to control your associates; but rather, be in control of the decision making process with regard to the person(s) with whom you will be associated and those with whom you will NOT be associated.
Remember this KEY: Be committed first to God and then God will lead you in whatever commitments you need to make to, or with, people. There are some people with whom it would NOT be profitable in the Spirit for you to be closely associated. This does not mean you do not love them, nor that you do not communicate with them or even work together with them, at times, in the work of the LORD. It does mean, however, that they are not your close associates.
One crucially important area to watch for is association with gossips. Never associate closely with gossips; never have them work for you. Love them and tell them about their sin. If a person gossips about other people, you can be sure that under the right circumstances that person will gossip about you! For help in this area, study the book, Don't Let the Little Dogs Bother You.
By knowing this fact ahead of time and operating wisely you can save yourself (and the Lord's work) from much harm. Be well advised (or, forewarned) to stay away from busybodies, gossips, and slanderers. Especially, have no close association with them, except to minister to them and help them.
Jesus ministered to thousands. He also had eleven disciples He poured his life into (the twelfth one was a devil, preordained by the Scriptures). However, Jesus also had a very close relationship with an inner circle of three: Peter, James and John. God has given you the FREEDOM TO CHOOSE and He will also give you the LEADING TO KNOW with whom to be closely associated.
Do NOT try to have associates just to have associates. If God wants you to have some close associates He will cross your path with those of like mind and faith; those with whom you can:
Have wonderful fellowship;
Have common faith to believe God for great things;
Share personal needs, wants, or dreams (aspirations).
There may be times when God would have you (lead you by His Spirit) to dissolve relationships that are already established. You must be very careful to listen and obey God in these times or your ministry could suffer greatly.
When you dissolve a relationship with someone, it does not mean you do not love them, nor that you do not communicate with them (unless God is leading you NOT to communicate with them). Remember, the key is: Be committed first to God!
Be responsible. Be available to help others in whatever way God leads you. You may have to sweat and work hard. You may shed tears at times, but you will have the JOY of the LORD, and that will be your strength.
Serve God because you love Him and you are thankful for what He has done for you―and for what He is doing for you even NOW that you MAY NOT SEE or know about―and then thank Him for what He will do for you in the future! Pray in your language AND in tongues: ask for only the associates God has chosen for you.
To help you prepare for the End Times I have chosen three (3) resources for you:
PUT GOD FIRST AND GO FORWARD!
One way to invest securely is by working with God, reaching others with the Good News!
A TAX DEDUCTIBLE RECEIPT WILL BE SENT TO YOU
My friend, let me ask you the most imporant question of your life: If you were to die right now, do you know for sure that you would go to Heaven? If not, pray this prayer:
“God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, if Jesus is really my Messiah, please reveal Him to me and I will serve You the rest of my life. Please forgive my sins. Help me to live for you the rest of my time on earth, and take me to Heaven when I die. Amen.”
Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai.
