Love and Arrogance, or Pride - David Mitts
We have been sharing about love as the essential life key for a successful life, fulfilling our destiny. Prophecies as great as they are, yet by their nature, time-limited. If I prophesy something about your future and you come into agreement with that prophecy, it can twist your perspective towards that outcome. By the nature of prophecy, even true God-inspired prophetic utterances, they invoke a reality shifting perspective. Take the prophecies about Yeshua. Why were the Pharisees deceived? Well besides their predisposition to political power, which we all have, they also twisted the prophecies into their understanding. Their understanding was colored by their agenda. So even when the prophecy occurred, they didn’t recognize it. So it is with any prophetic word.
- Inordinate self-esteem; an unreasonable conceit of one's own superiority in talents, beauty, wealth, accomplishments, rank or elevation in office, which manifests itself in lofty airs, distance, reserve, and often in contempt of others.
- The key is to see that it is inappropriate evaluation of oneself
- Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. (Gal 5:26)
- Pride is all about self-protection and self-promotion
