The seventy sent out, only found in Luke 10, the Full Chapter.
The Lord would have us, follow these instructions.
The Harvest, is truly great, we are His labourers. Will we venture forth?
Do not go alone…. work in pairs, or be sure to have taken on the Yoke of Jesus.
(His yoke is easy, His burden is light, we shall find rest, in the Work of the Lord).
We should go forth, no money, extra clothing, or shoes. We must rely on God for our provision.
Today, Religion insists on sponsors.
We are to stay, where we are accepted, we are told to, eat what is given, bless those who are worthy, heal those who are sick, and Proclaim the Kingdom of God.
Let us get this straight.
We are to go.
We are to stay where we are accepted. (Shake the dust off if not accepted).
We are to eat and drink whatsoever is given to us.
We are to heal the sick.
We are to Proclaim the Kingdom.
What we do.
Attend Church on Sundays. If we are Spiritual, maybe Sunday night and Wednesday too.
If we go forth, we must have a sponsor that will supply our needs, when, God fails us.
We like to choose our foods, and drink, thank you.
We will pray for the sick. (If God is willing,) He might heal them.
We will mumble something about the Kingdom of God? Maybe…
The Seventy were rewarded, for their obedience.
“The seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.“
Yet, we are afraid to go forth, and when we pray, we question Gods will and abilities.
Do we then wonder, at the lack of results?
The truth is hid from the wise and prudent.
What does that make me? How about you?
“After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.
And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.
And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.
And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.
Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you.
And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.
He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.”
