MORNINGTIME 2933
 
Jesus went unto the mount of Olives (to pray, as was His custom). And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a (sinner) taken in (sin); and they set (the sinner) in the midst, John 8:1-3. I have changed some words to illustrate a point, but not to change the meaning of the Scriptures. First, Christ was up and in His Prayer Closet very early in the morning to get a Fresh Word from the Lord God Almighty. Second, He took that Fresh Word to the temple to teach to all who would hear. Today we call this, having church. Thirdly, Satan comes in to try to disrupt the Lord in the middle of his "sermon". This too goes on in Churches across the land. But Christ, Who is our Example, took that moment of disruption and made it a very relevant teaching moment everyone around Him could understand. Christ showed forth some of His Godly Attributes covered in Mercy and Grace, as He stopped the mouths of lions, and Ministered to the people around Him, giving them Great Understanding of the Mind Of Christ. He showed them His Way and His Mind as He crushed worldly understanding with its legalistic ways. Christ never missed an opportunity to Glorify and Bless the Father, as He crushed all opposition from the world against His Father. When a church today Preaches Christ, you can count on Satan to raise his ugly head and disrupt GOoD Teaching and see a Discerning Teacher/Preacher grab ahold of sin and error, and teach Truth. Satan gets stomped on, Again. Yes, the Church's Prayer Warriors will keep distractions down to a minimum, but those distractions that DO get through, are Allowed, for such a time as this. And the Church just keeps on Growing! Don't worry about  Satan and his distractions, just keep your eyes on Christ as He makes All Things Right. Discernment is always a GOoD Thing to keep Alive and Well in your church. This Way, you will, Be Blessed.
