The Evolution of Rebellion III

Review

Psalm 19 has been our foundational text for the past 5 weeks

The Evolution of Rebellion Part II

Foundation for Rebellion – 3 ingredients

1. Anger

 David’s anger was righteous but he did nothing.

 Absalom’s anger was justified but he was bent on revenge

Ephesians 4:26 – Be ye angry and sin not let not the sun go

down on your wrath. Neither give place to the

devil (Opportunity, foothold or room)

Ephesians 6:4 – Fathers provoke not your children to anger

but bring them up in the discipline and

instruction of the Lord

(New Revised Standard)

Colossians 3:21 – Fathers, do not exasperate your children,

so that they will not loose heart

(New American Standard)

2. Resentment

 Favoritism

 Injustice

Hebrews 12:15 – Looking diligently lest any man fail of

the grace of God lest any root of bitterness

spring up whereby many are defiled.

3. Hatred

I John 3:15 – Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer

First step in rebellion – 1. Take matters into your own hands.

2. You can get things resolved and

accomplished.

3. You can or would do it better then

those in authority

In II Samuel 13:24 –39 Absalom executes his plan to murder Amnon and get justice and revenge

Rebellion Part III

In order for rebellion to be present there must be

1. Rebeller- The person resisting and aggressively

subordinating authority.

2. Rebelle – The authority being resisted

Rebellion – A spirit of resistance to authority

Revolt against any authority or order

Resisting controls

I Samuel 15:22 – 35 – Saul’s Rebellion

 Witchcraft – Manipulation and control through

conjuring spells and curses

 Idolatry – Is the worship of false gods

Saul’s Rebellion

1. Operated outside his anointing He was a King not a

Priest or Prophet

 Priests – Speaks and stands before God on

behalf of the people

 Prophets – Speaks and stands before the

people on behalf of God

 Kings – Rule by their ability to serve

2. Disobedience – incomplete obedience is

disobedience

 You can’t gain with sacrifice what you loose through disobedience

3. Concerned more about his position than his rebellion

 He didn’t want to loose face in front of his men. That meant more to him than his sin.

4. He forfeited the call because of rebellion

 God will not allow rebellion to remain he must remove it and replace. God’s anointing is lifted.

I Samuel 16:13 – 14

Numbers 12: 1-14

Miriam and Aaron’s Rebellion

1. They operated outside their anointing – Prophetess

and Priest and made themselves Moses’ judge.

2. They challenged Moses’ authority to hear God based on his marriage to the Ethiopian women

3. God will not allow rebellion to remain His presence is lifted, the rebellion is judged and ministry is halted

4. When confession of sin is made and intercession on behalf of the rebellion God restores His anointing and presence

Numbers16: 1- 50

1. They were seeking to walk outside their anointing – They were ministers of the Tabernacle and they sought to operate as priests

2. They challenged the established authority using numbers and influence

3. They murmured against God and became openly defiant. Insighting the people with deception.
