376-70 And isn't that just the way that people get today?

Let God just bless a fellow and put a little confidence in him, and he gets to be a know-it-all. He's got to start an organization, or he's got to do something that's different. "Why art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer."

God has a hard time trying to get somebody that He can deal with, that'll stay humble, and meek, and stay in the place until God calls him to do something (you believe that? See?), a man that God can bless and he'll still keep hisself a man, not be an angel or a god. As soon as man gets blessed and has a little something given to him, he wants to become a god; he wants to become a angel. He wants to become some great person. "What I do, what... Me and me and mine..." all that. That's the wrong attitude. God's hunting for somebody who He could bless and pour out the blessings, and more He blessed, the littler the man will become.

And you'll never get more of God until you become nothing. You've got to belittle yourself. “He that will exalt himself, God will bring abase. He that will humble himself, God will exalt”. You've got to get little before you can get big. And you'll never be big in your own self; you'll only be as big as God will be big in you. See?

376-73 So Lucifer is on earth today trying to work in the church to accomplish the same purpose that he started before the foundation of the world. Lucifer was kicked out of heaven. All right.

 

[II CORINTHIANS 12:6-7]

“6   For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but [now] I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me [to be], or [that] he heareth of me.

7    And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.”

 

 

[ACTS 12:21-23]

21    And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.

22    And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.

23    And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

 

Ministers, especially Pastors, should watch those who appear to be closest to you. Your downfall can also be caused by the lavish flattery and extravagant praise you innocently embrace. This is what has often mesmerised and destroyed leadership. Like Herod, you can become a casualty of flatteriosis. So, watchout!
