Isaiah 11:1 There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
2 The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
3 His delight is in the fear of the LORD, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
4 But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, And decide with equity for the meek of the earth; He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
5 Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist.
John 6:66 from that time many of his disciples went back and walked with him no more.
There is nothing wrong with an aggressive approach to people which Jesus Christ practiced? Could anybody deny the following about Jesus?
Jesus the epitome of love and character didn’t go around blessing people with words. He didn’t bless the religious and political leaders of his day but cursed them with ‘woe to you’ which doesn’t mean something good is going to happen to you especially when spoken by God incarnate.
Yes Jesus the epitome of love and character bad mouthed people. He called them all kinds of names including fools, hypocrites, murderers, serpents, brood of vipers, liars, blind guides, sons of hell, etc. He told them they would not escape the condemnation of hell (Matthew 23:15, 33, Luke 11:24-25, 23:38-31) and they didn’t
Gentle Jesus even told Peter “get behind me Satan!” In other words Jesus called a spade a spade and didn’t use nice words all the time like most evangelical preachers devoid of miracles, signs and wonders
Jesus Christ didn’t care about being politically correct – I wonder how many feminized evangelicals would reject and bar the real Jesus from their churches because He wasn’t concerned about pleasing people or having their acceptance?
Many evangelicals who are devoid of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit love talking about the importance of love, character and being gentle and not quarrelsome. They quote:
1 Timothy 3:3 not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous;
2 Timothy 2:23 But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.
2 Timothy 4:14 Remind them of these things, charging them before the Lord not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers.
15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
16 But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.
17 And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort,
18 who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some.
19 Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”
Now it is interesting that these words were penned by Apostle Paul who was very quarrelsome with Apostle Barnabas! As a result the word of God records:
Acts 4:36 Then after some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us now go back and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they are doing.”
37 Now Barnabas was determined to take with them John called Mark.
38 But Paul insisted that they should not take with them the one who had departed from them in Pamphylia, and had not gone with them to the work.
39 Then the contention became so sharp that they parted from one another. And so Barnabas took Mark and sailed to Cyprus;
40 but Paul chose Silas and departed, being commended by the brethren to the grace of God
Many evangelicals hate using an aggressive approach because they want acceptance by people and don’t want to be persecuted. And that is why they have these new church who don’t offend anyone which is hogwash. Of course there are no real miracles, signs and wonders or healing and deliverance in these churches just mental conversion which mean absolutely nothing!
“JESUS STILL HEALS THE SICK” (MATT. 4: 23)
We received a praise report from a woman named Lynn in Burnaby, BC. who had telephoned me earlier in the year for prayer to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. We prayed and she easily began to speak in her tongues-language (Mk. 16: 17).She was also suffering from stage three breast cancer and was given no hope to live. We prayed and asked Jesus to heal her (Matt. 4: 23). And, He did! She sent us a note to thank and praise Jesus for completely healing her of the cancer. She is like the one leper of 10, who returned to thank Jesus for healing her (Lk. 17:15).
