I heard the story of how a christian who was sick, and from her hospital bed, she began to evangelize to health professionals that were giving her treatments. She was giving them tracts to let them know about Jesus. The healthcare worker who was not a Christian at the time of that experience said to me, “I was thinking if Jesus could save her, why was she here. But now that I am in christ, I am aware she had the love of God in her, but had no power in her. She was satisfied with her status quo as she let the enemy toss her to and fro”.
Brethen, if you do not place the demand on the power of God, there shall be no supply unto you. It is insulting to our salvation to continue to allow the enemy to mess us up as believers. If as a christian, you have lost your identity in Christ, and begin to think, the power in the name of Jesus will automatically work your situations out, it’s a joke. If you have no power of God in your life, the enemy will eat you raw.
What is a christian life without signs and wonders?
What is a church without the revelation power of the Holy Spirit?
When the Lord sent Hosea, The Lord taught through the life of Hosea..
When the Lord sent Ezekiel, The Lord taught the house of Isreal through the lifestyle of Prophet Ezekiel...
When the Lord sent Noah to build the ark, the Lord showed what he was about to do to Noah because he was righteous ...
When the Lord sent Moses, He taught the Israelites through the life of Moses...
When our Lord Jesus was here, through His life, the Lord taught the Apostles...
During the times of the apostles, they lived a life focused on God’s assignment for them..
In this times, only a few remnants can be called the true servant of God. They have continued to build according to God’s plan. They have not compromised.
Lies and lies have been said to lead the people of God away from holiness and the true love of God. The true love of God will always remember about the sacrifice on the bloody cross and will do its best not to dabble in sin. The bible says, without holiness no man can see the Lord. So how then would you justify your messages which points the people away from holiness? Souls are in your care, do not lead them astray.
The Teacher is the Teaching
The Prophet is the Prophecy
The messenger is the message
Who we are, really goes a long way to define the impact of our message. That includes our outward character, appearance, and manner with which we conduct ourselves.
You can't be dressed like a prostitute and expect to be a conveyor of the message of holiness or carrier of the power that comes from inside the Holy of Holies. Remember, it is not a filthy place. The Bible describes the place as the holiest part of the temple with limited access to limited people. The power that comes from in there will not come upon filthiness.
Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, "Take off his filthy clothes. Then he said to Joshua, "See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you. Then I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the Lord stood by. The angel of the Lord gave this charge to Joshua: “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here" - Zechariah 3:3-5
Until you realize that all the secret sins should be totally forsaken, and holiness is your weapon, would you begin to walk in the full manifestation of the authority given to you as a Minister of God.
Are you really caring for the flock?
Your job does not end when you finish ministering to that individual in need of a breakthrough. In fact, it is only the beginning. As you go before the presence of the Lord, you are to take the names of God's people before the Lord to continue interceding for them.
"Whenever Aaron enters the Holy Place, he will bear the names of the sons of Israel over his heart on the breastpiece of decision as a continuing memorial before the LORD. Exodus 28:29
Return to plan
Inquire of the Lord and let him pull down every garment of filthiness off you. Rend your heart for the Lord looks into the heart. Pray to the Lord to reveal His mighty glory and power to you, that your ministry would no longer be cast away from the presence of God, and that the problem of identity of who you are in Christ may be resolved once and for all.
“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[f] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength” - Ephesians 1:17-19
Rise up in the might of the strength of the Lord, and revisit the blueprint given to you by the Lord for your ministry.
"Be sure that you make everything according to the pattern I have shown you here on the mountain” Exodus 25:40
Evil designers come out from time to time, bringing suggestions on how to build, on strategies to use. Remember, no one can download God's plan for His assignment for you like yourself. Genuine laborers come to support to move the work of God forward, not to redesign, manipulate or take you off course the Lord's Masterplan. God gave you the vision for a reason. You are to make others understand the vision they are going to be working with. You are not to submit the vision unto others for a modification, lest you become a rogue minister. Continue to seek after holiness and righteousness and His mighty power will manifest in your ministry.
