INTRODUCTION:

WHEN YOU’RE ANOINTED YOU FACE THE MOST CRITICISM OF OTHER’S BECAUSE YOUR WALK WITH THE LORD.
JESUS MINISTRY DID NOT MAKE SENSE TO MANY, BUT JESUS NEVER WAS DISTURB BY THE ACCUSATIONS OF HIS FOES OR HIS FAMILY.
WHEN YOU WALK WITH THE LORD, PEOPLE WILL THINK YOU’RE ABNORMAL, AND WILL CHALLENGE YOU TO SEE CAN YOUR FAITH STAND THE ACCUSATIONS THAT COMES WITH BEING ANOINTED.
JESUS WAS FACED WITH A FAMILY THAT THOUGH HE WAS GOING OUT OF HIS MIND, SCRIBES WHO THOUGHT HE WAS THE RULER OF DEMONS, BUT JESUS NEVER ALLOWED THAT TO AFFECT WHO HE IS OR WHAT HIS PURPOSE WAS HERE ON EARTH.
THERE 2 THINGS I LIKE TO FOCUS ON.
FACING FAMILY CRITICISM
FACING FOES CRITICISM
A. FACING FAMILY CRITICISM
MARK 3:21 “And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.”
WHEN YOU’RE ANOINTED AND OPERATE IN PURPOSE THE ONE THING YOU BELIEVE WHERE YOUR SUPPORT SHOULD COME FROM IS YOUR FAMILY.
YOUR BIGGEST CRITICISM CAN COME FROM THOSE WHO ARE THE CLOSET TO YOU.
THE REASON IS SOME WHO ARE THE CLOSEST TO YOU HAVE THE IDEA IF YOU BECOME MORE INTIMATE WITH GOD YOU WILL LEAVE THEM BEHIND.
MOST OF THE TIME THAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN YOUR FAMILY OR YOUR FRIENDS DO NOT HAVE THE PASSION FOR A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD.
JESUS WAS HEALING THE SICK, CASTING OUT DEMONS IN UNCLEAN SPIRITS , BUT BECAUSE OF HIS POPULARITY HAD GROWN HIS OWN FAMILY THOUGHT HE WAS LOOSING HIS MIND. WHEN GOD ELEVATE YOU THAT CAN PROVOKE JEALOUSY.
WHEN YOU’RE PASSIONATE IN WHAT YOU DO FOR THE LORD, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR FRIENDS GOING TO BELIEVE IT DON’T TAKE ALL OF THAT TO BE A CHRISTIAN, BUT IF THEY GOING TO LABEL YOU AS CRAZY, LEAST YOU BEING CRAZY FOR THE LORD. FOR WE WHO ARE SAVE KNOW THAT IT TOOK EVERYTHING FROM GOD TO GIVE UP HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON JESUS CHRIST. SO DON’T YOU TELL ME IT DON’T TAKE ALL OF THAT, WHEN IT CAUSED CHRIST HIS LIFE, WHEN IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN OUR LIVES.
HOW MANY OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS WHO CLAIM TO KNOW THE LORD, GET AGITATED ONCE YOU BRING UP THE LORD’S NAME.
IT’S ONLY BECAUSE THEY ONLY HEARD ABOUT HIM, BUT NEVER FOR THEMSELVES BECAME INTIMATE WITH HIM.
WE CAN HEAR A LOT ABOUT AN PERSON , BUT NEVER MEET THEM FOR OURSELVES, DO THAT REALLY MEAN WE KNOW THAT PERSON.
JESUS SAID TO THE MULTITUDE WHO IS MY MOTHER, OR MY BROTHER? THIS QUESTION ADDRESSED THE MULTITUDE THAT WAS SITTING AROUND HIM, WHO SAID LOOK YOUR MOTHER AND YOUR BROTHER’S ARE OUTSIDE SEEKING YOU.”
BUT JESUS ANSWERED THEM SAYING , HERE ARE MY MOTHER AND MY BROTHER! FOR WHOEVER DOES THE WILL OF GOD IS MY BROTHER AND MY SISTER AND MOTHER.
STOP MAKING PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE YOUR BROTHER AND YOUR SISTER AND MOTHER WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE GOD YOU SERVE.
MATTHEW 10:36 “And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.”
THE REASON OF THIS IS YOUR FAMILY KNEW YOU WHEN, MEANING LIFE OUTSIDE OF GOD. SO THE ONLY UNDERSTANDING THEY CAN HAVE OF YOU IS YOUR PAST, WHERE THEY FIND THEMSELVES STUCK AT. BUT WHEN GOD DELIVERS YOU FROM WHO YOU ONCE WAS, IT’S HARD FOR THEM TO EMBRACE THE NEW MAN.
B. FACING FOES CRITICISM
MARK 3:22 “And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.”
WHEN OTHER’S FAITH ARE NOT AT THE MEASURE OF GRACE GOD HAS GIVING TO EACH ONE OF US WHO TRUST IN THE LORD, THOSE WHO LACK FAITH THINK IT’S IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE LORD TO WORK MIRACLES THROUGH YOU WHEN IT HASN’T HAPPEN IN THEM.
THIS WHEN THE FOE WILL ACCUSE YOU OF BEING THE PRINCE OF THE DEVIL. BECAUSE THEY WHO LACK FAITH ONLY BELIEVE THE DEVIL HAS POWER.
PEOPLE GIVE THE DEVIL MORE CREDIT THAN THEY DO GOD. THE BIBLE SAID THAT JESUS WAS GIVING ALL POWER IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH. SO JESUS HAS THE POWER HEAL OR DESTROY.
SO WE AS BELIEVERS , GOD SAID HE THAT BELIEVETH ON ME, THE WORKS THAT I DO SHALL HE DO ALSO: AND GREATER WORKS THAN THESE SHALL HE DO: BECAUSE I GO UNTO MY FATHER.
SO WE WHO WALK BY FAITH KNOW IT IS NOT US WHO IS ABLE TO PERFORM THE MIRACLES, BUT THE CHRIST THAT LIVES IN US PERFORMS THE MIRACLES, WHICH IS THE HOLY SPIRIT.
HOW JESUS ADDRESSED HIS FOES , JESUS ASKED THE SCRIBES , HOW CAN SATAN CAST OUT SATAN?
THE ONE THING THAT JESUS WOULD DO TO HIS DOUBTERS WHO HAD NO UNDERSTANDING IS SPEAK IN PARABLES.
NOW WHAT WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND EXORCISM WAS NOT UNCOMMON IN ANCIENT ISRAEL, SO THOSE WHO SEEN JESUS CAST OUT DEVIL’S ON A HIGHER LEVEL, ENVIED JESUS BECAUSE OF THE REACTION OF THE CROWD.
WHAT JESUS CASE WAS HOW CAN SATAN FIGHT AGAINST HIMSELF, BECAUSE IF THAT’S THE CASE SATAN;S HOUSE IS DIVIDED AND IT WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO STAND.
WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT SATAN HAS HIS OWN KINGDOM, BECAUSE HE IS THE PRINCE OF THIS WORLD.
WE KNOW WHAT THE WORLD CONSIST OF, THE LUST OF THE FLESH, THE LUST OF THE EYES, AND THE PRIDE OF LIFE, WHICH IS NOT OF GOD.
BUT WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW IS JESUS IS STRONGER THAN THE STRONG MAN. THE PROOF WAS HE CASTING DEMONS FROM MANY THAT CAME INTO HIS PRESENCE WITH UNCLEAN SPIRITS.
SO THE VERDICT IS THIS, JESUS IS MORE POWERFUL THAN THE STRONG MAN, AND THE STRONG MAN IS SATAN
LUKE 11:21-23 “When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: but when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.”
