18553. EVERY KINGDOM HAS A BOUNDARY. DO YOU HAVE A BOUNDARY IN YOUR LIFE AS A CHRISTIAN?
THE REASON WHY NOTHING SIGNIFICANT IS HAPPENING IN YOUR LIFE IS BECAUSE YOU’RE A BORDERLESS CHRISTIAN. WHAT YOU CALL BOUNDARY IS NO BOUNDARY AT ALL. AT BEST, IT’S A RELIGIOUS AND CARNAL BOUNDARY. EVERY JUNK FREELY PASS THROUGH YOUR LIFE, FRIENDS AND FOES DUMP THEIR JUNKS IN YOUR LIFE BECAUSE YOU HAD NO BOUNDARY THAT STOPS THEM FROM TRESPASSING!
“…HE WAS ALONE WITH THE TWELVE…” – (MARK 4:10) – THAT’S A BOUNDARY! HE WAS ALONE WITH HIS DISCIPLES. HE FENCED OUT THE MULTITUDES.
BE NOT DECEIVED, GOD’S KINGDOM HAS BOUNDARIES. EVERYWHERE RABBONI WENT HE WAS THRONGED BY THE MULTITUDES, THE CROWDS PRESSED IN ON HIM (MARK 5:24; LUKE 8:42). BUT HE HAS BOUNDARIES. HE HAS A SPIRITUAL BOUNDARY, AND OUT OF THE HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS THAT PRESSED IN ON HIM, ONLY ONE WOMAN CROSSED THAT BOUNDARY!
LUKE 8:42-46 (HOLMAN BIBLE)
… While He was going, the crowds were nearly crushing Him. A woman suffering from bleeding for 12 years, who had spent all she had on doctors yet could not be healed by any, approached from behind and touched the tassel of His robe. Instantly her bleeding stopped.
“Who touched Me?” Jesus asked.
When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds are hemming You in and pressing against You.”
“Someone did touch Me,” said Jesus. “I know that power has gone out from Me.”
When the woman saw that she was discovered, she came trembling and fell down before Him. In the presence of all the people, she declared the reason she had touched Him and how she was instantly cured.
“Daughter,” He said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
RABBONI IS A VIRTUE TANKER. HE IS A POWER 💪 💪 💪 TANKER. THE MULTITUDES WERE TOUCHING AND PRESSING IN ON HIM, BUT THEY COULD NOT CROSS THE BORDER OF VIRTUE. ONLY ONE WOMAN CROSSED THAT KINGDOM BORDER. NO WONDER HE SAID IN MATTHEW 7:14 “… FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT…”
PETER SAID EVERYBODY IS PUSHING YOU AND YOU’RE SAYING ONLY ONE PERSON TOUCHED YOU!
1. ASK GOD TO HELP YOU TONIGHT THAT THE POWER TO TOUCH HIM WITH FAITH FALL UPON YOU IN JESUS NAME.
2. ASK GOD TO HEAL AND DELIVER YOU FROM THE CAGE OF RELIGIOSITY IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME.
3. ASK GOD TO DELIVER YOU FROM BANDWAGON CHRISTIANITY IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME
4. ASK GOD TO DRAG YOU TO HIS SECRET PLACE OF POWER AND INTIMACY WHERE YOU CAN COMMUNE ALONE WITH HIM.
ALL YOUR RELIGIOUS GAMES WITH GOD ARE THE REASONS WHY YOU’RE A KINGDOM DROPOUT, KINGDOM OUTCAST, KINGDOM OUTSIDER!
DO YOU HAVE TIME ALONE WITH GOD? ARE YOU AFRAID OF SOLITUDE? ARE YOU AFFLICTED BY LONELINESS? IS QUIET TIME WITH RABBONI A DIFFICULT TASK FOR THEE?
AFTER ALL THE MULTITUDES LEFT, RABBONI WAS ALONE WITH THE TWELVE AND TOLD THE 12 DISCIPLES A SHOCKING STORY.
IN THE SECRET PLACE, RABBONI CREATED A BORDER. HE SAID ALL HE DID WAS TO SPEAK IN PARABLES TO THE MULTITUDES BECAUSE THEY WERE OUTSIDERS (MARK 4:11).
“You disciples are being given an understanding of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but the crowds of people are not.” (MATTHEW 23:11)
KINGDOM SECRETS ARE TAUGHT IN THE SECRET PLACE OF POWER.
I GIVE YOU ANOTHER SET OF SCRIPTURES TO CHEW AND DIGEST BEFORE WE GO FURTHER AND DEEPER THROUGH THAT NARROW GATE:
PSALM 81:7 (KJV)
Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the waters of Meribah
PSALM 91:1 (KJV)
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
PSALM 18:11 (KJV)
He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies
ISAIAH 45:3 (KJV)
And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
