THE RUGGED CHRISTIAN AND RUGGED PRAYERS.

(MORNING) THE RUGGED CHRISTIAN.

NUMBERS 25:6-13
6 Then behold, one of the sons of Israel came and brought to his relatives a Midianite woman, in the sight of Moses and in the_ sight of all the congregation of the sons of Israel, while they were weeping at the doorway of the tent of meeting.

7 When Phinehas the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he arose from the midst of the congregation and took a spear in his hand,

8 and he went after the man of Israel into the tent and pierced both of them through, the man of Israel and the woman, through the body. So the plague on the sons of Israel was checked.

9 Those who died by the plague were 24,000.

10 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

11 ” Phinehas the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, has turned away My wrath from the sons of Israel in that he was jealous with My jealousy among them so that I did not destroy the sons of Israel in My jealousy.

12 “Therefore say, ‘Behold, I give him My covenant of peace;
13 and it shall be for him and his descendants after him, a covenant of a perpetual priesthood, because he was jealous for his God and made atonement for the sons of Israel .'”

Phinehas was a rugged Christian because he was zealous and passion for establishing God’s kingdom. The Holy Spirit is a gentle and meek spirit but also rugged. Our dispensation requires Christians with the rugged spirit.

Characteristics of a rugged Christian.
1) They are consumed with passion for the kingdom. They are kingdom establisher through righteousness. Like Esther they will say, If I perish, I perish…
2)They are filled with Fire in their bones and they spend hours with God as they blast in tongues. Their prayers life and word life is intact.
3) The stand for truth at all cost, they don’t paint the truth to suit them. They don’t need your applause to encourage them to do right. Like the 3 Hebrew that refused to bow down to the image, even in the expense of their death.
4)They are rugged in boldness: The disciple when into hiding but when the rugged spirit enters them, they roar like the lion and spoke in other tongues with no apologies.
5)They are rugged to show the light of Christ at all expense. Darkness is not comfortable around them. The kingdom of darkness knows that they are rugged.
Like in Acts of apostle 19:15, And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know and Paul, I know who are ye.

Ruggedity is the remedy to establishing the kingdom of God on the earth.
Habakkuk 2:14: For the earth shall be filled with the kingdom of the glory of the Lord as the waters covers the sea.

Prayer: Father, baptise me afresh with the rugged spirit for your kingdom must be established among us. Kill lukewarmness in me.
