Morning Message of Motivation
Major Shifts: 14
Rev Robert Ampiah -Kwofi
The major shift from Old Testament to New Testament produced new leadership. The priesthood changed from the formal and legalistic Levitical order to the charismatic Melchizedek order. Jesus Christ became the new leader.
Isaiah 55:4 NKJV
“Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people, A leader and commander for the people.”
Christ was anointed for signs and wonders.
Acts 10:38 KJV
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Christ is our exalted leader.
Philippians 2:9-10a NKJV
“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow”
Christ and His children are for signs and wonders.
Isaiah 8:18 NKJV
“Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, who dwells in Mount Zion.”
Christ our Leader was more anointed than all other leaders. In the first chapter of Hebrews, our Lord Jesus’ leadership is proven to be superior to that of angels.
Hebrews 1:7-8 NIV
“In speaking of the angels he says, “He makes his angels spirits, and his servants flames of fire.” But about the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.”
Christ’s leadership was founded on His love for righteousness and His hatred for sin and evil.
Hebrews 1:9 ESV
“You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”
Christ our Leader embodied all the perfect leadership qualities.
May the Lord greatly anoint you with gladness and joy. May the vital leadership qualities of the Messiah be established in your life, in Jesus’ name.
