To get authorised means:
To get official permission for, or approval from the right authority
John Newton, a notable physicist in a 3rd law of concerning forces states that Every Action has an equal and opposite reaction. In order to maintain balance on earth, this is the case: Action and Reaction.
In terms of relationships, this means that every action causes an effect.
22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Another example is
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Wherever you find an action, there is a reaction, so you must get the requisite authorisation to act otherwise a relationship somewhere goes bad whether it is a formal relationship or an informal relationship.
A lady once shared a dream:
In this dream she met an old class mate of hers in town, and this friend was walking with a man dressed in a police uniform.
Now while exchanging pleasantries with her old time friend, someone brought a car to her friend there, so the friend excused her that she would be with her in a minute.
The friend sat in the car with the police man driving and they went on a test drive. The police man was driving the car aggressively and later smashed the car into a gutter and the two of them got out unhurt.
After that the friend went back to talk to the one who brought the car and the police man walked past our lady while leaving.
Then the lady asked him a question. That you don’t like the car eh?
The police man only smiled. Then she said, as for the people outside the country who send these cars they don’t know how we suffer here so they send whatever they like. The police man only nodded.
Then the lady asked him can I have your number sir? So that sometime i can chat with you. He said sure. Now for about 5 mins, the phone the lady wanted to use to take the number would not respond. She said pastor, I don’t know what happened to the keypad, some wrong numbers would come and even backspacing would rather be typing something else.
So at a point it became normal but now her hands were shaking so she gave the phone to the police man to type in the numbers.
When he started he looked past her to something and then shook his head and gave the phone back and said later and he left.
Lo and behold her friend had just come behind her and was now looking at her. She started, ow i was just trying to take her number because a friend of mine has a case and so i needed advise ….
The friend shook her head and left.
So I asked the lady that why did you do that, he said Pastor I don’t even know and then I knew that something was wrong.
This was an informal relationship messed up by unauthorised and inappropriate engagement.
Why didn’t you simply get authorisation from your friend? Ow it’s nothing?
You just destroyed your years of trust earned, and it’s nothing?
All the opportunities that would come with that trust are gone and you say it is nothing?
1 Peter 2:9
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
We are supposed show forth the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvellous light by the display of wisdom in our relationships.
Our preaching of the Kingdom must not just be filled with words but our actions and this is why we are learning now, so that we become better.
An aitheist, buddhist or muslim must learn from you not by yyour speaking of tongues alone but by your display of wisdom.
It is not in our Kingdom culture as believers to take action without seeking permission.
RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
a. Adam did not have the permission to eat the Apple, he could have lodged a complaint or reported the incident to God who gave the instruction, that this is what my wife has done, what should I do?
1 Timothy 2:14
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
Why didn’t you report the matter?
In many cases we fail to obtain permission because we do not report a matter. Reporting goes with authorisation. Report to get authorised.
b. Jesus was tempted with Bread in the wilderness but He did not eat (
3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

19 And David enquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the Lord said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
2 Samuel 5:23

2 Samuel 21:1

CONSEQUENCES OF UNAUTHORISED ACTION
Why Did Saul Die?
1 Chronicles 10:13-14
13 So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even against the word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it;
14 And enquired not of the Lord: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.
After years of service why did Gehazi become lepros?
2 Kings 5:23-27
23 And Naaman said, Be content, take two talents. And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags, with two changes of garments, and laid them upon two of his servants; and they bare them before him.
24 And when he came to the tower, he took them from their hand, and bestowed them in the house: and he let the men go, and they departed.
25 But he went in, and stood before his master. And Elisha said unto him, Whence comest thou, Gehazi? And he said, Thy servant went no whither.
26 And he said unto him, Went not mine heart with thee, when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants?
27 The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.
- Lord forgive me for anytime I abused a relationship by doing anything without permission
- Have mercy and let there be peace in my relationships;
- Lead me by still waters so that I can prosper; by rivers of living water
