Women's Call To Prayer
PROTECT THE WORD
PROTECT THE MAN
It was about three week ago; when I heard the LORD say “PROTECT THE WORD”. I started jumping thru hoops and quoting scriptures to justify how I think I’m protecting the Word. Scriptures like….
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee – Psalm 119:11
Then the LORD says PROTECT THE WORD, PROTECT THE MAN – I’m like LORD you’ve just spoken 4 times and when you’ve spoken 3 times in bible it meant listen up, pay attention.
We can PROTECT THE WORD, PROTECT THE MAN by being obedient to the ones who watch out for our souls.
Hebrew 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must (not an option) give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you (us).
Disobedience doesn’t have to be this big sin, remember it is the little foxes, the little thoughts, the little looks, the little whispers… that spoil the vine, that separates, that causes the small holes in the hedge of protection.
We know in-part, we see in-part, we believe in-part, but we don’t think… it is not in the forefront of our minds to PROTECT THE WORD, PROTECT THE MAN because we have so much other stuff we deem important, my family, my job, my bills, my issues…. I got to seek Jesus for myself. We say, I can get the same word the Bishop and the Pastor gets; I can get it too if I study – WRONG. 1. We don’t have his mantle 2. We don’t have his anointing. 3. We don’t have his level of responsibility; not only for his soul, his family’s souls, but all of our souls, all of our situations and circumstances….
No man is an island unto himself – meaning; Yes, you can get the word for yourself, but it is not the same level of the word you get from the one who watches for your soul. Yes, we have people who come and speak to us – that’s fine and dandy; but they are not the watchmen for our souls. – Our pastor’s are the gatekeepers that get beat up for us, for trying to protect us not only naturally, but even more so spiritually.
The attacks that come on them; they come to take down the shepherds; so then the enemy can easily get to the sheep. Because Satan knows – get the shepherd out the way; then you can get the sheep. Or reverse it get the sheep out the way, then you can get to the shepherd. The goal is to get us. All of us.
If we don’t PROTECT THE WORD, PROTECT THE MAN – the hedge of protection about him will have holes in it. If we can’t protect him; then he can’t protect us.
When it is all said and done… it is simply about choice; our choice to be obedient – not outwardly, where we can put on an act. But inwardly where only God knows and we know what we are truly feeling and thinking.
Ladies… Sisters: You either PROTECTING THE WORD, PROTECTING THE MAN or you are Hindering the word, Hindering the man. Thus hindering the move of God; now hindering, is not stopping it; but slowing it down. There is no middle ground.
