THE MAKING OF A LEADER
INTRODUCTION: One of the greatest hindrances in ministering healing is the concept that this may be YHWHs chastening for some sin I have committed.
I. YHWH DOES CHASTEN AND CORRECT HIS CHILDREN. What we need to determine is the METHOD by which He does it.
A. ...the exhortation which speaketh unto you as children...
(Mishlei (Proverbs) 3:11-12)
a. Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 1:18 (reason: yakach)
B. What to do with and not to do with YHWHs chastening.
1. Two things NOT TO DO:
a. despise: make light of: disregard as insignificant
b. faint: quit, relax (as a sign of giving up)
2. Two things TO DO:
a. endure: (hupomeno) patience to stay under, remain, persevere
b. be in subjection to: submit to (Yaakov (James) 4:7)
*Whatever correction comes from YHWH, we are to submit to it and not resist it.
II. LUKE 9:51-56
A. Destroy: (apollumi) to destroy fully
B. Apolluon is from the Greek work apollumi, and means Destroyer. It is one of Satans names - Apollyon.
1. Revelation 9:11
2. Yochanan (John) 10:10
III. HOW DOES
REBUKE AND CHASTEN HIS
A. II Timothy 3:15-17 (Amp), And how from your childhood you have had a knowledge of and been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you and give you the understanding for salvation which comes through faith in Mashiach Malki Tzedik Yahusha (that is, through the leaning of the entire human personality on YHWH in Mashiach Malki Tzedik Yahusha in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom and goodness). Every Scripture is YHWH -breathed - given by His inspiration - and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, and for training in righteousness (that is, in holy living, in conformity to YHWHs will in thought, purpose and action), so that the man of YHWH may be complete and proficient, well-fitted and throughly equipped for every good work.
B. II Timothy 4:1-4
C. I Timothy 5:20
D. Titus 1:9-13
E. Titus 2:11-15
