> It is no small secret that the accuser of the brethren, Satan, seeks to discredit brethren and set brethren against brethren. God has a directed order for dealing with sin, but the accusation against brothers saying they are not brothers is a special sin in itself. The Act of being "puffed up" is the abomination of pride and is not the humilty of mourning. Blessed (empowered) are they who mourn. Getting wrathful and riled in the flesh (The Wrath of Man) cannot work the work of God. Jesus had devine anger and got busy in demonstration of repentance of sin. He IS the Lord and is High Priest. It was but his duty to clean up the temple; Jesus has a very slow fuse. What angers the Lord most is religious hypocrisy: acting like you have never sinned youself and putting the screws on someone else.
Luke|9:46-50 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great. And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
Luke|18:9-14 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselvesthat they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
>Blessed be your name oh Lord! Father, thank you for Christ, thank you for all the true brethren. As strange as any may seem, we realize that no brother is made perfect but by your work of Grace. Forgive us our own sins. God bless the brethren to be helpful and to call upon your name, asking you what is your word and will in every matter. You are the head of the body. God bless the brethren to be quick to be reconciled to you, "for with what measure you measure it shall be measured unto you." May we be quick to judge ourselves before we judge others. And help us to an attitude of prayer for the church instead of an evil speaking mouth. Father reprove the work of the Devil that the understanding of the saints may be opened and that we give him no place. May we abide in your ways in the Holy Spirit. You know our hearts, help us to turn to you inside even if we appear discredited to others. Thank you Lord for your forgiveness, healing, and blessing in Christ. Thank you for your intervention in the midst of trials and temptation. God bless the brethren this weekend in you miraculous way, in Christ, Amen! Thank you Father!
