Pray that the Holy Spirit will bring a high level of orderliness during the 2020 World Agents of Change Conference and take authority over every spirit of distraction and pray against every manifestation of the works of the flesh – theft, immoral conduct, loitering, etc. in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
– 1 Cor. 14:33, 40
For God is not a God of disorder but of peace… But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.
Chapter 14 of 1st Corinthians is in essence, a set of instructions on orderly worship. The way much of our public worship is conducted today would draw the same rebuke from the Apostle Paul. There are many disorderly things that we do and explain away as being the work of the ‘spirit’. Scripture is however abundantly clear: “God is not a God of disorder but of peace.”
When Noah was to construct an ark to save himself and his family, he was given by God, specific designs and dimensions of what to build. God could have caused any large wooden structure to float on the waters but no, he gave detailed instructions for the building of the ark. Order!
When Moses was instituting the regulations for worship in the Old Testament, he was repeatedly told by God to “See that you make them according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.” Order! If the dispensation of shadows was orderly, how much more so should be the dispensation of the real thing? That we are in an era of grace is no excuse.
As we gather in this conference, let us take authority over every disorderly and distracting spirit. Pray that the power of the cross of Christ will subdue every work of the flesh in our midst.
