8/16/09 PETER RETURN AND STRENGTHEN YOUR BRETHREN
First line of defense. Strengthen the brethren.
Luke 22:31-32 NKJV
And the Lord said, "Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has
asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I
have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail;
and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your
[Lord what’s the second line of defense?]
Teach them. Why am I being punished? Obey. Moving to
a better place in the process. Humility. Humble. To
remain submissive. Offering. Do not be afraid.
Heb 12:11-13 NLT
No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening —
it is painful! But afterward there will be a quiet
harvest of right living for those who are trained in
this way. 12 So take a new grip with your tired hands
and stand firm on your shaky legs. 13 Mark out a
straight path for your feet. Then those who follow you,
though they are weak and lame, will not stumble and fall
but will become strong.
Cleared for landing. Rock remain. Solid foundation.
Must be strong. Dont quit. Witness. Back by popular
demand. Buckle up for power. I am with you.
Matt 16:18-19 NKJV
And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this
rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades
shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you
the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind
on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose
on earth will be loosed in heaven."
Partner. Oracle. I am attentive to you. I have made

To stick with your children is My highest calling.
Connected. To watch over them. Watch care. Who are My
children? The ones who listen.
WORD TO PONDER: PETER STRENGTHEN THE BRETHREN
Peter, you have gone through a great sifting.
Presumption, temptation, independence and need to be
accepted has taken you through the wringer, turned out
over and left you badly shaken.
I am attentive to your prayer and will make provision
for you. Now on the other side, I exhort you, do not
quit. Return to strengthen the brethren who are now
going through similar washings. Teach them, help them
understand through what you learned in the same process.
Peter, My highest calling is for you to stick with My
children. Walk with them, watch over them, and stay
connected. Who are My children? The ones who will

But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not
fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your
