Spiritual Authority

Geneses / Exodus / Leviticus

February 18, 2003

 

 

Suggested Reading:

 

Mark 5:17 - Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Watchman Nee (Spiritual Authority) states:

"If God dares to entrust His authority to man, then we can dare to obey. Whether the one in authority is right or wrong does not concern us. The obedient one needs only to obey. The Lord will not hold us responsible for any mistaken obedience, rather He will hold the delegated authority responsible for his erroneous act" (SA, p.71).

 

"For our service to be approved by God we must not serve with our own strength but serve on resurrection ground. We ourselves have no authority, we are only representing authority. Thus the flesh has no place. We only cause problems if we do anything according to our own whims. The church is not only afraid of there being no authority, it is also afraid of the wrong authority. God has one thought, and it is to establish His own authority" (SA, p.152).
