Key points include:
  • When you cannot receive instruction, the wasted life of rebellion is not far behind!

  • You can be filled with the Spirit of God and still end up wasting your life (Saul did this)!

  • Whenever you get out of your calling, the wasted life of rebellion is not far behind.

  • Pride is the gateway to rebellion.

  • Pride makes you a prisoner to other people's opinions; fear is the chain that binds you.

  • Rebellion is when you elevate human opinion over the Word of God. 

  • There is nothing more satanic than rebellion!

  • Rebellion is often masked by worship. 

  • Rebellion will deceive your own heart.

  • Rebellion will waste your life. 

  • If pride is the gateway to rebellion and the wasted life, then humbling yourself before God is the gateway to submission and the abundant life!

  • SUBMISSION is when you come under God's Mission!

Key points include:
  • An offense is like a stake driven into the ground that makes you its prisoner.

  • Unforgiveness is like a chain that binds you to that offense. 

  • Sometimes we have to trust God to make it right in HIS time and in HIS way.

  • When the focus of your life is on revenge and not on answering the call of God on your life, the life you are living is being wasted.

  • The offended person becomes a critic (becomes highly critical of others).

  • This is the place an offense will take you: It will take you to a place where you cannot receive instruction from the person or persons most suited to help you to fulfill God's call on your life. You will sit back as a critic and reject the instruction that could set you free!
