ELDERS & GOD'S INTENT
The ministry of Kingdom Elders is all about this:
"... the intent
the manifold wisdom of God
might be made known
by Christ’s People
to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places,
according to the eternal purpose
which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord," Ephesians 3'10-12.
Being God's intent, Elders are called to teach, shepherd-lead and oversee Christ's Called-Out Ones in the doing of it.
That doesn't mean just verbally informing the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. The Father wants them to actually know it.
Being made known means being felt - powerfully defeating the enemy's works of darkness.
Starting in the Garden of Eden Satan began opposing God's People, God's Purpose and God's Manifold Wisdom.
Remember what "... you are in Christ Jesus". He "... became for us wisdom from God" (1 Corinthians 1'30). That means we have the living word of God to defeat Satan in the power of the Spirit.
Yes, Jesus is "wisdom from God"! Every person receiving Him receives His manifold wisdom and counsel.
Prayer. Thank you Father for faithful Elders who teach, shepherd-lead and oversee your Flock with godliness, holiness, love and power.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
