Leadership Attacks - the three
Leadership Attacks. Whenever a someone appointed by God
is beginning to prosper or move up in life, the Bible in Numbers
16:1-4, tells us of a spirit that begins to complain and the complaints
are in three forms.
always assume a lot to yourself”
You always have all the powers. Why don’t you delegate
to us. These people have no interest in helping people but what they
want is SOME OF THAT POWER that is on you. So they can be equal to you.
Similarly satan told God that he (satan) will ascend and rise above
where he will make his throne on high. The same spirit always want to
rise above their leaders.
the members of the community belongs to the Lord and the Lord is with
us all the time”
Why do you want us to have fellowship all the time. Not
all of us are like you. Some of us are not Christians. We can come if
we want to. If we want to attend fellowship we will. Or if we want to
come to work we will. Why should we always be honest in our duties, why
should we not lie when we want to. We are not all Christians. In fact
the Lord is with us too. He loves us too. So why should we listen to
you. God hears us DIRECTLY. We don’t need you. This is a common
complaint against someone chosen by God.
made you our leader. Who appointed you"
We don’t remember voting for you. There was no
consultation with us by anyone to make you boss over us. We don’t know
how GOD appointed you. You are not our choice. Anyway I don’t report to
you. I have my own boss and he does not complaint on the way I handle
things, so why should you complain. The previous supervisor was better
These are always the 3 main complaints in the church, in
a church committee, at work place, wherever. This complaining spirit is
the "spirit of KORAH".
In verse 31 of Numbers 16, God kills Korah and his
family and everything Korah owned, plus the 250 other supporters of
Later the whole congregation complained against Moses
for the killing Korah and the others, and again God kills 14,700. If
Moses and Aaron did not uphold the incense plate to GOD, the number
could have been more.(verse 41 – 50)
Beloveds, as christians we have to be careful in what we
say about those God has appointed to watch over us, least God's anger
is directed towards us. If you are a leader who is constantly facing
these types of attacks, knowing this information can help you and your
family or team to pray specifically against this spirit. May God bless
to read about the POWER that is in your MOUTH .
