Right People At The Right Moment

Words In Season:
One thing is surrounding yourself with the right people, another thing is having the right people around you at all times.
 A Kingdom Patriot

Bearing:
"Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows."
"All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad."
"Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir"
                                   Psalm 45:7 - 9

Bottomline:
After the devil departed from Him in the wilderness, Jesus having gained deeper insight with His 40 days of seeking our Father's face, was able to discern his next plans.
Understanding that the best warfare strategy is to foil an attack at the operational planning stage, to the seaside Jesus went to map out His counter strategy.
Fishing boats at the seaside
He recruited three rugged fishermen, Peter, James and John. At the Federal Inland Revenue office, He got Matthew. And within days, Jesus surrounded Himself with twelve able bodied men! And if occasion arise for an assignment that privacy is required and there was limited space for all the twelve, He goes with at least three of them.
Of course, His primary purpose was to disciple and make fishers of men out them. But they are to serve a secondary purpose of keeping Him company at all times. Even as bodyguards and bouncers if occasion warrants it. Seamen and fishermen could be tough guys bah!
What could have been the devils next plan? That which has brought down great rulers on all fours, and landed mighty men in the hands of their enemies, Samson for instance, and David who got knocked down on the canvass before getting up on his feet again - WOMEN!
The only time Jesus was alone in His life and ministry was when He was at Gestsemane. Even at that, His disciples where close by watching at a distance. In case of any "incasity" Who knows peradventure the Jezebel may be hiding among the shrubs in the garden. The disciples though not praying along with Him, can bounce her out!
The Maker of us all, knew the house of the Samaritan woman, but He did not go to her house, but rather met her beside a public well, where any can come at anytime without notice to draw water and see them.
David surrounded himself with the right men, but on that fateful day on the roof top, he did not have any of them around him, at that crucial moment of his life! David was alone on the roof top that day!

  • Not a single security detail with him. Had there been, they would have in their customary over zealous manners rose to the occasion, blocked his view and guided him back down the staircase, to sit him on his throne in the court.

As a cube of sugar attracts ants, so does the anointing attracts women to the anointed. According to the biblical passages on our "bearing" today.
Jesus understood this, so does the devil. And both drew the battle lines. Jesus ensuring He was never alone both in private and public. Even when He was alone praying, in the wee hours of the morning, as His daily custom was, His disciples were watching from a distance. Otherwise, they wouldn't have one day, asked Him to teach them how to pray, if the have not watched Him praying.
Finally brethren what more we say than to ask you to "go and do likewise"? Even Joseph's " close shave" blunder cost him years in prison on false accusation by the same woman who seduced him to no avail.
As a cube of sugar attract ants, so does the
anointing and the anointed women

But what could have been Joseph's blunder? Yes, a tactical blunder at that. Hear us out Knowing that a woman is after you, you shouldn't allow any occasion for you and her to be alone in the house!
 "And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within."  Genesis 39:11 Just she and him alone in the house!!!
Thank God, he escaped by whiskers? But at the expense of his newly bought shirt. Plus some years in the gulag!
Where do we go from here? For those still out there who are yet to come to terms with this decision of a life time. Take this decision today by coming to Jesus in repentance and surrender your life to Him. When you give your life to Jesus, He surrounds you with the the right men who will guide and direct you aright in your sojourn here on earth. Yield your life to Him today.
