Recap last week – Nehemiah 22:20 & Esther 10:3
Read Nehemiah 4
Each one held a sword while building the wall…
How are we to hold a sword while rebuilding the wall???
Revelation 1:16″…From His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword…”
Proverbs 18:21″the power of life and death are in the tongue”Definitive declarations moved in the Spirit World – had almost immediate push-back
We hold our swords in our mouths at all times!
Therefore, in order to build a wall while standing guard against the enemy we must be ready to “give account” of the truth, 1 Peter 3:15.
ALWAYS READY TO SPEAK THE TRUTH – How???
Knowing who we are as SONS
Knowing the AUTHORITY we hold to SPEAK LIFE INTO EACH OTHER and to SPEAK DEATH over the enemy’s plots and schemes
CHANGE YOUR WORDS – CHANGE YOUR THINKING
Son-ship and Authority 101:
Genesis 1:28″God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it…”
“subdue” – Hebrew word, “kavash”literally means to place your foot on the neck of your conquered enemy signifying a submission of the enemy to his defeater.A similar word, malak, means to have dominion over, or to rule over
FROM THE VERY BEGINNING WE WERE TO HAVE SONSHIP AUTHORITY
