The Christ of The Crisis

Leadership In Crisis

Bishop Sean Teal, Th.D.

(Issachar School of Ministry)

The Seven Last Words of Christ on The Cross reveal the mastery of crisis management. 

There is no greater crisis than The Crucifixion of Jesus.

Jesus conquered his crisis.

In Chinese lore the two characters that combine to make the word ‘crisis’ are danger and opportunity.

Every crisis offers an opportunity. 

How did Jesus lead the world through it’s most crucial crisis? 

What are the principles and practices being taught to leaders?


“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” 

Luke 23:34

Handle the hard stuff first. What’s more difficult than to forgive the unforgivable?  The hardest work of a leader is to rescue and restore people.


  “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” 

Luke 23:43

Promote potential when things are painful. The penitent thief is dying on a Roman cross and Jesus is talking to him about paradise. Talk to your team about the dream not the death!


“Jesus said to his mother: “Woman, this is your son.” Then he said to the disciple: “This is your mother.” 

John 19:26-27

Redefine significant roles and responsibilities. Every crisis tests the best team relationships. A crisis gives you permission to rethink how the team should team together going forward.


“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” 

Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34

Ask questions that get to the heart of the matter. Why? That is the question of champions. 


“I thirst.” John 19:28

Communicate your most basic needs as a leader. Don’t be afraid to be transparent. Keep your messages simple.


When Jesus had received the wine, he said, “It is finished;” and he bowed his head and handed over the spirit.  John 19:30

Know when to “shut it down”.  Closure is a treasure. Your project needs a start and finish date. The longest recorded Roman crucifixion lasted 10 days. Jesus finished in six hours. How do you know when you’ve won?


Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” 

Luke 23:46

Delegate what you are currently doing so you can lead more to the next level. Jesus turned his spirit over to Father. This was His way of ensuring His Resurrection. After The Resurrection He leads captivity captive and gives us gifts of the Spirit ( Ephesians 4:7-9).

Hear and Be Healed

Hearing and Healing
Bishop Sean Teal, Th.D.

“And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret” (Luke 5:1).

The main attraction in the ministry of Jesus was the Spoken Word of God. People wanted to hear Jesus teach and preach The Word. The crowds “pressed upon Him”.

The Greek word for pressed gives the picture of burning coals. They were on fire with a desire to be taught by The Word. The people were impassioned, excited and enthusiastic about the teaching and preaching ministry of Jesus.

While Jesus is teaching from the boat of Simon Peter and Company a miracle of increase happens. It happens by The Spoken Word. See Luke 5:5-9.

The next scene in the chapter is the call of the disciples. They forsake all and follow Jesus according to The Spoken Word. See Luke 5:10-11.

The next scene in the chapter is the healing of a leper. The leper is healed by The Spoken Word. See Luke 5:12-13.

The next scene reveals the direct connection between what is heard and the people being healed. The people who came to hear were healed. What you hear can heal!

“But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities” (vs. 14).

The next scene in the chapter is Jesus in private prayer. The connection between private prayers and public power is irrefutable. If you want the miracle producing power in your life spend time alone praying.


Muchness Meditations

Muchness and Helpfulness

“And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?” (Luke 16:12).

It’s the other that gives us our own. How we treat others; how we help others; how we prefer others and how we support others determines how much of our own we will receive. What you help make happen for others God will make happen for you.

Think about it. Jesus teaches us that something can be yours and yet you may never have it. It’s yours but it can remain out of your reach.

Jesus wants us to own muchness. Muchness is a dividend of helpfulness. When we are willing to help others it moves us closer to our own dreams and visions.

Have a helpful day! May the Lord bless others and may you have your own! – Bishop Sean Teal

Break Word Curses

Break Word Curses


Bishop Sean Teal, Th.D


“Listen, I received a command to bless. God has blessed, and I cannot reverse it!” (Numbers 23:20).

I will declare Your Word. You have spoken and I speak what You have spoken. Your Word is out of my mouth like a two-edged sword. Your Word is the sword of the Spirit. You are the Warrior King. You are Jehovah Sabaoth. I join with the armies of The LORD that fly the banners of Jehovah-Nissi. 

Holy Father,  I praise you for Your Word. Your Word is eternal. Your Word is my faith. Your Word is my joy. Your Word is my victory. I praise You for revealing Your nature, character and power through Your Word. I believe You and Your Word.

I declare victory over every sentence that has spewed from the mouth of the enemy. I touch and agree with the saints and servants of  the Most High God who are touching and have touched, agreed and will agree with this prayer. We are binding and loosing. May the words of the enemy that have come against our souls be discomfited, disassembled and disavowed. Grant us to enter the battle that wages against the weak and unknowing.

I take my stand against the words that work as the wiles of the devil. I lift the shield of faith and quench the fiery words and accusations of the wicked one. I redirect and renounce all words that are directed against me. I declare that my mouth is open and that no word weapons formed against me will be able to prosper. I declare that the words I speak come from the spirit and life of Jesus. Therefore, I boldly declare I have the victory over the enemy.

I repent from the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart that were not acceptable in Your sight. You are my Rock and Redeemer. You are my Heavenly Father and Curse Breaker. I receive forgiveness and cleansing. I look to You to restore my soul and anoint my head with the freshest and finest of oil. 

According to the anointing of Jesus Christ I declare my every burden is removed and my every yoke is destroyed. I am in the breach against the enemy. I deny access to his words and works. I order my steps in The Word and overtake the dominion of every demonic decree. I  take joy in the overthrow of the hordes that are assigned to assist fallen Lucifer. 

I now command that every word of distraction, division and deceit is destroyed. I shut the mouth of every demon spirit that threatens me with failure, sickness, poverty, loneliness and death. I shut the mouth of every foul spirit that speaks to my fears, anxieties, and worries. I am delivered from the words that seek my destruction. 

I take ungodly words into captivity and present them to Christ. I will not host strongholds, demonic doctrines or seducing voices in my mind. The weapons I use are mighty through God. I pull down the words that depress, distress and demean me. I rise into victory. I stand in confidence. I am a carrier and bearer of The Word.

My mouth is open with the praises of God. I extol the only true and living God. I stand in faith and warfare on behalf of those I know and love. Release my family from old words that wounded their spirits. Deliver our generations from word curses, soul talks, bullying, insults and offenses. I disable gossip, incantations, hexes, vexes, spells, horoscopes, fables, soothsaying, palm readings, tarot card declarations, sexting innuendo, and false prophecies that were spoken over me and my loved ones. 

I command every conversation that comes into my hearing to be sanctified and full of purpose.  I only open my ear gates to wisdom, truth and knowledge. All of my conversations and contacts are righteous. I remove, block, ignore and dismiss every conversation that is carnal, corrupt and controlling. I speak protection over my mind. I speak a guard over my mouth. I have the tongue of the learned. I speak the wisdom of The Spirit. I pray in the Spirit and with the understanding. I am full of God’s word. 

All my praises to The Word made flesh! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
