The Bible says a curse upon those who preach a different that quite simply preached Jesus and that clearly proclaimed St. Paul Gospel. What we need today is the same word of God, confirmed by means of signs and miracles to give testimony to the power and the person of Jesus Christ. The biblical model consists of the Holy Spirit to spill his anointing on the supernatural Word and give his supernatural gifts that you are extending the Ministry of Jesus. This is how do the work of God and that is how it should be built the Church of Christ.
Since they were being sent directly by the master, the Apostles under the responsibility of making entrusted, work in the way he said them. They were the Lord sheep and therefore should not use wolves tactics against Wolves in the world, because the fact that were the Lord sheep did not mean actual in a naive way or meaningless. Christ is not to your loved ones are ignorant or that people have for fools. Jesus recommendation is to be careful, cautious, sensible and practical. It may be difficult to recognize it, but the snake, apart from what one thinks of it, is the most appropriate animal model for this type of behavior in places of danger.
However, there are certain characteristics in the snake which are undesirable in cas cunning, malice, and other elements of this fearsome animal behaviour behaviour To contrast the idea, the Lord sent their representatives to be honest, simple and pure as the Dove. Christians should not take part in conspiracies or secret maneuvers. Only pure motivations and a sincere devotion to Christ may result in the believer correct behaviour and wisdom to please God.
Jesus also prevented his Apostles to give very careful to not fall into the trap of men. The Greek text here not on both men as individual, but rather collective blind by sin, because men are false, Satanic power-driven and motivated by the impulses of his flesh.
And the opposition rather than shrink would increase with over time, it would reach the degree of being arrested, beaten, whipped, brought to the rulers and the courts to prosecute them. They were being sent to be witnesses of Christ, because the accusations, the judgments in the courts of men would be great opportunities to testify of the Lord. Not only could evangelize the of their own race, which opposed them, but also to the gentiles. The same opposition would be as a free advertising for the Gospel to help open new doors for its spread.
Many of the prayers that christians often are intended to ask God to remove them the difficulties and problems in their lives or the lives of believers siblings. But really this desire does not conform to the teachings of Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Matthew, which clearly warns: “You must be presented to the Councils in synagogues you will throw at you.” Children will rise against parents and make them die. Ye hated of all because of my name. The enemies of man will be his household. “Who takes his cross and follow towards me is not worthy of me”.
With these teachings in mind we can balance our natural and common desire to pray to make disappear all our suffering and any inconvenience. We know that our God can get rid of all our problems, but do we stop to find the true will of God in each case? Perhaps the best thing we could do is the ask us: receive more glory God if he us pound of our difficulties and sufferings, or we will give more honor to name our perseverance and loyalty?
