#3 BASKETCASES HOLDERS, SNUFFING OUT THE LIGHT
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr.
Dear friends: Part#3 OF 4 PART Basketcases holders.
2 Corinthians 11:33 And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.
Matthew 10:42And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of COLD wateronly in the name of a disciple, very I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
2 Kings 5:11 ..
...BUT NAAMAN WAS WROTH, AND WENT AWAY, AND SAID, BEHOLD I THOUGHT (His thinking and logic can not produce the needed healing), HE WILL SURELY COME OUT TO ME, AND STAND, AND CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD, HIS GOD, AND STRIKE HIS HAND OVER THE PLACE, AND RECOVER THE LEPER. VS. 12 SO HE TURNED AND WENT AWAY IN A RAGE.
1Chron.16:22 ... Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
Ponder #3 Basket case holders going wrong and snuffing out the light they were called to advance? Pass it on?
Today, as we ponder deeper, we ponder and I consider the role of basketcase holer turning sour, and instead of being a basket case holder,
the coworker turns on the individual and thus on the office of God’s leader.
Please, consider this with much depth.
We often fail to realize how important it is to not be rebellious and stand with the man of God.
We base this firmly on the Word, 1 Chron.16:22 and Psalms 105:15.
We have lost of fear of the lack of respect for the altar, the House of God, and the man of God.
Using the power of repetition, the Word strongly suggest to not touch the anointed and do no harm.
Harm may not be fist or guns, but verbal abuse, mental damage.
You can quickly kill the man of God’s influence with a few words, that you never pondered the ramifications of the power of your words.
Often, we talk about Christian workers and how they do things differently than you thought they should have?
We needed a holy fear, respect, reverence to return to the Body of Christ for the man of God.
I fear miracles are lost, healings missed, because of misunderstanding the office of the man of God.
The man of God must be above the desire for applause and popularity.
By touching the man of God, we are touching the message of God.
Those that touch these things will pay dearly.
I have seen many individuals that tasted preachers blood and acquired a taste for more, and their children become resistance to authority, and the parents could not see that their attitude toward God’s man influenced their behavior?
Let’s look in the Bible and catch a bad attitude toward the man of God that almost stopped a miracle.
2 Kings 5:11 ..
...BUT NAAMAN WAS WROTH, AND WENT AWAY, AND SAID, (please note the roll of the spoken word against the message and the messenger), BEHOLD I THOUGHT (His thinking and logic can not produce the needed healing), HE WILL SURELY COME OUT TO ME, AND STAND, AND CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD, HIS GOD, AND STRIKE HIS HAND OVER THE PLACE, AND RECOVER THE LEPER.
VS. 12 SO HE TURNED AND WENT AWAY IN A RAGE.
This little temper fit is a sign of immaturity and spiritual rebellion that almost cost Naaman a sure, painful death as an outcast.
The nerve of a man trying to influence the message, the messenger, by turning healing into a show.
The man of God refused as much as to come out and see the man. I going to tell you something very plain, the men of God can’t reduce God to a "circus-atmosphere."
I know when the servant, Gehazi reports to the man of God on Naaman temper fit, that the man of God was hurt.
And those hearing Naaman’s temper fit of utter disgust with the man of God, will never totally erase the words loosed by the enemy! I am thankful the man of God never bowed to popular opinion!
When we speak against God’s message, we loose demonic powers.
Naaman should thank God there was a man that had spent time in the Holy Presence OF THE ALMIGHTY.
Can you imagine, telling the doctor, my gall bladder is here behind my lungs?
To be real honest, to come against the man of God is a lack of submission.
Naaman refused to submit what he was expecting, to what God had planned.
God does not need your approval to do His work.
God’s man does not have to have your approval, but if you expect healing, you better SHUT THAT MOUTH AND REPENT.
Naaman was healed totally when he submitted to what the man of God said, not what he thought.
