THE SOIL OF OFFENSE THAT GROWS THE SEEDS OF SHAME AND CONFUSION
S.Mark 15:15 So Pilate ('armed with a dart or spear; offense), wishing to satisfy the crowd, set Barabbas (son/seed of shame and confusion) free for them; and after having Jesus (salvation/deleverance) whipped (punished in public), he handed [Him] over to be crucified (destroy its power utterly)
O. Satan uses the 'Pilates' (Offenses) of today to release the 'seeds' of confusion and shame free in our lives. He does this in 'public' in order to humiliate us.
Satan uses the 'Pilates' (Offenses) of today to publicly punish us, with the intention to utterly destroy and subdue our deliverance/salvation and freedom.
A. Offense in my life should be null and void, because the Bible says it is a sin. Offense is taking on another burden to carry that shouldn't even exist in my life because I have been set free by Jesus.
But when I DO take on offense, it releases the seeds of shame and confusion in my life...gives shame and confusion a place to grow.
Offense is the soil in which the seeds of confusion and shame can grow.
If I refuse to take on offenses, confusion and shame have NO PLACE TO SPROUT!
P. I am free of shame and confusion because You have taken away the offenses that can grow those 'seeds' in my life. Jesus, blind me to offenses. Cover my ears so I will never even hear them. In Your name, Jesus.
Mark 16:7But be going; tell the disciples and Peter, He goes before you into Galilee; you will see Him there, [just] as He told you.
