I'm re-posting this today for my friend Barbara, @blonde_apocalypse
As I humble myself more and more to the realities of what is mine in Christ Jesus, as I pray and act out the authority He has bestowed upon me and upon all believers, and as I teach others in areas of faith which are beyond their present comprehension, very often observers accuse me that I have become autocratic, authoritarian, arrogant, even disrespectful of the Lordship of Jesus Christ. These accusations are generated by the “liar and the father of lies,” even when they are voiced by sincere but weaker believers. So I offer the following, written by JA MacMillan in his book, The Authority of the Intercessor:
We have been made through the ministry of our gracious Lord, “Kings and priests unto his God and Father.” If we believe this, and walk in the conscious light of the Lord, there cannot fail in time to be seen in us what was said of the brethren of Gideon: “Each one resembled the children of a king” (Judges 8:18).
Now and at all times when I see for myself, manifested in the physical realm, that my prayers of command in the Name of Jesus, directed at the unseen forces of darkness have been obeyed, I give all the praise and glory and thanksgiving to Whom it rightly belongs, my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.
In the words of the Larnelle Harris song, Everything You Are: Lord, in spite of how it may appear, You know that my heart is pure. And I find the truth I’m searching for in You. NOT in the words of my accusers!
