SMS Message - ELIJAH USED THE AUTHORITY HE HAS IN GOD TO STAND AND SPEAK AGAINST UNGODLY PRACTICES IN HIS TIME 1KINGS 16:28-33, 1KINGS 17:1. WHAT ARE YOU USING YOUR OWN AUTHORITY IN CHRIST FOR? IT IS ONE THING TO HAVE AUTHORITY IT IS ANOTHER THING TO HAVE THE CONFIDENCE TO USE IT. JOSHUA HAD AUTHORITY AND THE CONFIDENCE TO USE IT TO STOP THE SUN AND THE MOON FROM GOING DOWN TILL THE EVIL PLOTTED AGAINST HIS PEOPLE WERE AVERTED. ELIJAH HAD AUTHORITY AND THE CONFIDENCE TO USE IT TO STOP RAIN FROM FALLING FOR THREE AND A HALF YEARS TO CHALLENGE THE WORSHIP OF BAAL WHICH WAS ENCOURAGED BY KING AHAB AGAINST THE WILL OF GOD. WHEN YOU STAND FOR THE TRUTH IN GOD AGAINST ALL ODDS, DO NOT THINK YOU ARE ALONE IN THAT FIGHT. GOD WHOM YOU ARE STANDING FOR IS WITH YOU. AND HE WILL NEVER SEAT DOWN TO WATCH THOSE WHO USE THE AUTHORITY OF HIS KINGDOM IN TRUTH TO BE PUT TO SHAME. YOU ALSO DO NOT NEED TO GO THE WAY OF JOSHUA AND ELIJAH IN RE-ORDERING THE WORKS OF NATURE. THERE ARE A LOT OF PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL MANIPULATIONS THAT GO ON TODAY THAT ARE CONTRARY TO THE WORD OF GOD WITHIN FAMILIES, CHURCHES, WORKPLACES, COMMUNITIES, ETC. WHERE IS OUR CONFIDENCE IN GOD TO MAKE USE OF THE AUTHORITY WE HAVE IN CHRIST? WE ONLY KNOW HOW TO USE THE AUTHORITY FOR REQUESTING FOR PERSONAL THINGS AND NOT FOR ENGAGING IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE THAT CAN BRING LIBERATION TO THE PEOPLE. IF JOSHUA AND ELIJAH WERE TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT PERSONAL COMFORT, THEY WOULD HAVE KEPT QUIET AND ALLOWED THE ATTACK AGAINST ISRAEL TO DESTROY THE PEOPLE AND THE WORSHIP OF BAAL TOO LEFT UNCHALLENGED. LET US ARISE AND BUILD UP CONFIDENCE TO USE THE AUTHORITY WE HAVE IN CHRIST IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE FOR OUR GENERATION.
