"Matthew 10-The Sending Forth of the Disciples by Jesus"

Online School of Prayer, Abiding in Christ-Online School of Prayer,
In today's writings I wanted to begin to take a look into the Life of Christ Jesus with His disciples: How did He call them? What type of power did He give them? What were they to preach? How do they respond to opposition, and more.

Almost thirty-years ago when I was called into ministry, "I had no idea what it took to be a Disciple I just went."  Yet, as I look back on my early years of ministry I realize that through all of these years there is only one thing that works in ministry and that is, "Trusting God's Word."  I love the term Disciples because they were seekers of God's Word to learn directly from Jesus Himself.  Secondly, I love the term Disciples because it was Jesus who taught each one how to have results from the Words He spoke to them.  Our study commentary in God's Word today comes from the Gospel of Matthew chapter ten.

Jesus Called Them

Matthew 10:1
And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

What a high honor it is to be called by Christ Jesus Himself to be called a disciple. A disciple is one that learns by use and practice.  Here, each of the twelve were called by Christ Jesus to learn of Him and follow Him to use and practice His words.  He would teach them what to do and how to do what He was commissioning them for.  One who is called to be a Disciple only needs to rely upon the Teacher, even though the Teacher relies solely upon the Holy Spirit.  A Disciple not only increases in knowledge, but they increase in getting results.  They would be mentored by Christ Jesus.  Today, Christ Jesus still continues to call and Disciple His people.  At the same time, a Disciple can still be personally taught of Christ Jesus Himself if one learns to yield to His Words in the Word of God, and prayerfully seek the Holy Spirit as their Teacher.  The Holy Spirit will teach a Disciple in all things and will not lack on any given matter.

Jesus Equipped Them

Here, in this same verse we see that Jesus not only called his Disciples but he also equipped them.  That is, Jesus Christ gave each of them power to do what they were given to do.  He not only affirmed them to be called by Himself, but He gave them the right to have influence (power) and the right (privilege) to carry out whatever He told them to do, and what needed to be done. This is very important to know for every young Disciple because often one might think, "What is my job?  What am I allowed to do?  What are my limitations?  What is my job description?"  It does not matter what walk of life you are in or where you are coming from, "If you are called by Christ Jesus it is important to know that you have been given influence and the right to carry out the Words of Christ Jesus in your lives."  As a Disciple you have been given a crown for your place of influence, by Him alone to carry out His Word as this is the means the word power.  However, at the same time you have the privilege to give commands that must be obeyed.

If you were in a classroom and the Teacher would call upon your name to do a particular task and the other classmates looked at you and listened to you how you would respond a particular way to the Teacher asked you to respond to, "You would automatically be listened to by others in the classroom."  However, as a Disciple when you are called by Christ Jesus Himself, "Everything is commanded to listen to you with or without the Teacher calling on you.  You have been called by Christ Jesus and you have been ordained by Christ Jesus Himself."

Jesus Told Them What They Would Do

As we continue to look in this Scripture we see that Jesus told them what they would do, to begin with. Here, Jesus gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.  To someone who is a new Disciple one would easily understand the custom in which Jesus spoke this to his Disciples.  That is, "Every Disciple must understand what is clean and unclean in the Levitical law" and Jesus would teach them a ceremonial sense: what to obstain from, and a moral sense-thought and life.  This is very important to a young Disciple who is called by Christ Jesus as each person must understand what Jesus calls clean and unclean, and what His moral laws are.  Jesus would teach every Disciple this importance so that each Disciple would learn why they do what they did, on behalf of the kingdom. There is much I could say on this matter yet, I will stick to the focus for the new convert to hear and understand. 

Jesus Sent His Disciples

Matthew 10:5

Here, after Jesus gave them instructions he continued speaking to them where they should go.  Jesus specifically told them "Do not go to the Gentiles and do not go to the Samaritans but go to the lost sheep of Israel."   In today's world the Christian church (I do not really like that name) calls this type of service evangelism.  Yet, in a real sense this is where everyone is sent to go.  Here, the Gentiles were not yet converted by the ministry of the Apostle Paul and they were not sent there.  At the same time, the Gentiles were pagans because they had not heard the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and seen it demonstrated in word and deed.  Secondly, each Disciple was not to go by way of the Samaritans. Here, Samaria was the northern region of the ten tribes of Israel which split away from the kingdom after Solomon -the King died.  the name Samaria meant watch mountain.  It was in these beautiful mountains of Samaria that Jesus would one day go to and preach the kingdom to Israel.  So, to begin with Jesus sent His Disciples to go to the lost sheep of Israel.  You must understand what it means to be lost, by rite of custom.  Again, learning this thought should be taught to every Disciple of Christ Jesus.  A lost sheep is not one who has never heard the Gospel of the kingdom as one would think.  After all, if you were to take it literally it was rich Jewish custom that women could not practice the Torah and read the Torah.  So, if this statement was to be taken literally as it is in the Church world today that we know of it, this represents that every woman must be preached to first.

Here, the lost sheep of Israel where those that were put away to be destroyed and rendered useless. At the same time if I could put this in 20th century words for everyone to understand that would be, "Anyone who was going to hell in a hand basket" if that makes it clear.  The word lost here in the Greek is the word number G622 which means, "Give over to eternal misery in hell."  (Most who are not Scholars of God's Word say hell is not in the Holy Bible--yet it is.) At the same time as you continue to study the lost it represents those that have been given over to the destruction of the flesh.  Along with those who are ate up by the lusts of the flesh and destroyed by the flesh. For this reason, many who are sent are powerless and the Gospel is combative and debative as most do not understand 'Where they are sent." For this reason ....(I will leave that thought to you, the reader.)  Here, these sheep are those who are on their way to the slaughter whom Christ Jesus would ransom and set them free as followers and Disciples of Christ. This is the place where demons would be and demons must obey everyone who is sent by Christ as a Disciple. For this reason Jesus called this place, "The House" of Israel.  Israel is a name that was given to Jacob which means, "He shall be a prince of God."  Israel would become a Nation of the descendants of Jacob and this also represents Christians, the Israel of God.  (Gal. 6:16)  For this reason the second meaning of the name Israel is "God prevails" which comes from the idea of how Jacob wrestled with the angel at Peniel. There is a rich study in God's Word on these name meanings, however our text must stay focused concerning the Disciples. As well, the lost sheep were those that lost their land and it was those they were sent to that were forgotten by Shepherds (Jeremiah 50:6) and gone astray (Isaiah 53:6).  These are they Jesus came to restore, hallelujah!  (Matthew 9:10-13)


Jesus Told Them What To Preach

Matthew 10:7

Here, after Jesus told them where to go he also told them what to preach as he said, "As you go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Here, as a Disciple one must learn this speaking of how to use their influence of authority in the kingdom and demonstrate their authority given to them in the kingdom. 

Here, it really takes skill to learn of Jesus to preach and demonstrate the kingdom.  Jesus Himself taught in parables to reach the multitudes but it was his ability to demonstrate it through: healing them all, in order to get their attention to listen about the kingdom.  In today's world most are talking about "Getting beamed up to heaven, walking with aliens, creating galaxies, flying around on a wing and prayer, knowing more names of demons then demonstrating the kingdom. Different court systems, to summon a demon rather then bind and cast them out, and more. No wonder the world thinks the church is nuts!"  At the same time, there is no mention here in the mission of the Disciples to preach in the temple, it was strictly: house to house, open field, street preaching. 

We will continue our timeline together, next time, on the commission of Jesus and His Disciples.  For this time around, I pray this was a blessing to you.

"If Jesus is the faith of God then living a life of Abiding in Christ--is living a life of the faith of God." Today, after you are finished listening to this short audio I would like to share with you a few tips on the subject of "Righteousness" and how "Righteousness has everything to do with the Word of God working in your life."

Speaking the Word is important but "It is more important to live a life of yieldedness" so what you speak will have effect in where you are sending the Word of God to any situation. Living a Life of yieldedness is the secret to release Grace unto every mountain in your life to remove them.

At the same time, "The secret Life to a Seer to live a life of purity in motive and heart to walk and talk with Jesus in the Secret Place is living a life of yieldedness" to see Jesus and into His kingdom.

Visions of Jesus-Healing Prayers, Sister Lara Beyond the Veil Prophetic Ministries,
Here, in this book I wrote in the original Microsoft Office 2000 Word package.  It still has the original pictures in the Draw program of Microsoft Word that I share four easy steps to see Jesus, with four Scriptures to practice.

At the same time, "This book has stood the test of time" and is still one of the top 1 % books on the Internet on this subject.  It stands out on it's own because it does not teach you how to "Perceive and have a Mind's eye vision but it teaches you how to SEE JESUS."  The word SEE in the original Greek context is where we get the English word, "Video."  Here, you will learn to have "Videos of the Holy Spirit--Discipleship Book."

This book has over 111 pages that will stay with you for the rest of your life. 

At the same time, "If you are wanting to grow in a life of yielding a life of Abiding in Christ" then I suggest these two books of Discipleship:

The Job of a Minister: Three Tips for Every Minister to Excel in Ministry

"The Minister is the Attendant"

This was during a time that I was ministering to God's people for a little over four and half hours, and "Jesus was there ministering to them all" as I was speaking out Word's of supernatural knowledge-and Jesus was doing all the work.  Here, I want to give you a few insights that will be a blessing to your day.

In the Book of Luke we read how the Spirit of the Lord was upon Jesus, as "He was handed a Scroll" in the synagogue.

17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
As each of us Abide in Christ and live a life of yieldedness, "We understand that we rely upon the Person of the Holy Spirit to orchestrate everything we do."  Here, Jesus did the same as He showed us the Way, "He yielded to the Holy Spirit, too."  It is the job of attendants --in whom each of us are, "To speak the Word of God" and as we do, "Angels will come and open the Word of God--and watch over the Word of God we speak.  As well, in the realm of the Spirit Jesus Himself will come and minister the Word of God."
It was a blessing to see Jesus out and about this particular evening ministering to the Body of Christ, but moreso, "It is a blessing to know we are nothing without the Holy Spirit."  Every minister must come to the place of reliance upon the Holy Spirit to commission the angels--to open the Word of God and the Holy Spirit will reveal to the hearts of people who Jesus is and give them eyes to see Jesus."
When Jesus was finished, He rolled the scroll back up and gave it to the attendant--or the minister--and went sat down.  If you allow the Holy Spirit to use you this way you will understand that "We do not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the heart of the Father."
  • Abide in Christ: It is here you fully learn to rely upon the Holy Spirit for the work you have been given in your assignment.
  • Allow the Holy Spirit to commissions angels on your behalf as you learn to speak the Word of God--understand they are at work to open the scrolls you read for the Holy Spirit to reveal and prepare Jesus to make entrance.
  • Allow Jesus to minister to the people as you become a faithful yielded attendant living a life of Righteousness in Christ Jesus.

Good Day
