Titles and Positions in the Body of Christ!
He said, “The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes,” Psalm 118:22-23.
The answer the Lord gave me! Jesus had many names with which he was identified! It was the people who rejected Him and stole His identity (the scribes and Pharisee and the Romans who feared him) as the Son of God!
He told them who he was and those that received him was blessed but them that did not was not and when they did not he went where he could be received and did many wonderful works!
God said to me this is a matter of preference (God has not called us to fight but unto peace, so if that person desire to place a title before his or her name and you are saved; honor and respect them that there be No division in the body!) to each who has been called by God in the five fold-ministry, but because you have a title or NOT, does NOT prove humility, because Satan can transform his or herself into an angel of light! (False humility!)
I want to share this, because I believe we should NOT be caught up in titles. I also want to say this if you are NOT showing honor to a Woman of God or anyone else because you don’t believe they should be addressed by their title, and NOT because you simply forgot, God is going to deal with you for being mean spirited, because contrary to what you may think, we are to demonstrate both honor and a special LOVE to the house hold of faith!
God is calling for order in the body of Christ and too many of us are trying to go around JUDGING the call of others and are refusing to acknowledge the call on a person’s life! The bible says “Touch Not my anointed,” and it means just that!
Now, you examine yourself are you simply overlooking that person or are you doing it out of spite!
See: John 6:41-71
Verses 41-42: “The Jews grumbled about him, (it was his own people who rejected him; NOT the world) because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” They said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How does he now say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”
The people were not accepting Jesus’ claim to Deity, and that He had come down from Heaven. They were saying, “We’ve known Him all his life, and even his parents. How can He say that He came down from heaven: (now don’t that sound like many of us who judge the call (women are Apostles and or Prophets) and they felt He was being Arrogant and lifting himself up when ALL he was trying to do was the will of his father! We should be honored to be rejected and striped of our identity and royal robe (whether it is an Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist etc…..) by those who are religious and think that we have come to do our own will!
“For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?” Luke 23:31.
2016: Edification, Exhortation and Warning!
Maturity vs immaturity!
This is a word for those who are serious and refuse to play church!
I asked the Lord to give me a word for 2016 and he gave me the number 9!
He said that next year (2016) will be a year when some things are going to be birthed and developed.
He said that we as a people of God are going to see the gifts of the spirit being activated: such as the revelatory gifts and the power gifts because they will be needed in order to deal with much demonic warfare of the enemy and to demonstrate the power of God in the earth like Never before!
The Lord said to me that the year of 2016 is going to be a year that God is going to demand: ACCOUNTABILITY among the people of God!
The Lord said to me that He is going to require the body of Christ to KILL the flesh through dedication and consecration! Why? Because, God DID NOT call the body of Christ to commend (in other words this is not about how great you are; but the mission of the church is the saving of the souls!) themselves?
And neither did He call us to be like someone else in the body of Christ, for we are all different, and He has made each and everyone of us to be unique and different! (Working by the same spirit but different administrations) So, it is Not important that we seek validation from others, but it is important that we walk as epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men. “Forasmuch as ye are MANIFESTLY DECLARED to be the epistle of Christ ministered by others in the body of Christ, written NOT with ink, BUT with the Spirit of the living God; NOT in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart,” 2 Corinthians 3:1-3.
I hear God saying, no more excuses! No more justification will be accepted for not striving to seek God face to face! But, God is calling for true holiness! He is calling for a radiant church, a church without spot or wrinkle or any such thing! (Ephesians 5: 27)
Does that mean you will not make mistakes? Of course not, but what it does mean is that you should be growing and the things that caused you to cry last week or last year should not be causing you to cry or sin this year!
The Lord said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, (Many of us don’t want to acknowledge God, the things of God and the people of God, but those that God loves He chastens, so be zealous therefore and repent saith The Lord!). I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame, (Hosea 4: 6-7).
Many of us are perishing foolishly all because we don’t want anybody telling us the truth! How can you grow and develop, and reproduce a harvest for The Lord when you will not accept correction, rebuke, and reproof? saith The Lord! For, even a baby cannot remain on milk forever! At some point you will have to increase the intake of food that he or she is ingesting in order to be healthy! If not, that baby will have a stunned growth and will be titled, “retarded or have developmental delays!”
And you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of The Lord, nor faint when you are reproved by him; for those whom The Lord loves He disciplines, and He scourges every son whom He receives.”
It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? But if you are WITHOUT discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate (bastards) children and NOT sons. (Hebrews 12: 5-8).
God is speaking and it is time to stop making excuses and accusing the body of Christ of judging you and to and make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed, (Hebrews 12:13). Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it? I hear The Lord saying to stop trying to silence his anointed vessels!
For, surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. The lion hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy? (Amos 3: 6-8)
The Lord wants his people to love Him out of a willing spirit and out of a pure heart! And, He is calling them to remember when He brought them up from the land of Egypt, and led them forty years through the wilderness, (out of bondage our of captivity) to possess the land of the Amorite. And if that was not good enough he raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. (to be saints of God) And was it not even thus, O ye children of Israel? (People of God) saith the LORD.
That ye gave the Nazarites (people of God) wine to drink; (I hear God saying that many of you have begun to throw your sons and daughters to the fire!) and commanded the prophets, saying, Prophesy not. (meaning instead of you blessing the people of God; you have all together become a stumbling block and caused them to go back down into Egypt by rebuilding that which God has killed by telling the Apostles and Prophets to shut up!) (Amos 2:10-16).
The Lord is saying that the evil passions of the heart break out in various forms; but the Lord looks to our motives, as well as our conduct. Those who deal cruelly shall be cruelly dealt with. Other nations were reckoned with for injuries done to men; Judah is reckoned with for dishonor done to God.
Judah despised the law of the Lord; and he justly gave them up to strong delusion; (a reprobate mind) nor was it any excuse for their sin, that they were the lies, the idols, after which their fathers walked. The worst abominations and most grievous oppressions have been committed by some of the professed worshippers of the Lord.
For, I hear the Lord saying that such conduct leads many to unbelief and vile idolatry. Faithful ministers (honor those whom God has sent as a gift to the body of Christ to bless you!) are great blessings to any people; BUT IT IS GOD THAT RAISES THEM up to be so. The sinners’ own consciences will witness (convict them) that he has not been wanting to them in the means of grace.
You see, this wicked nation did what they could to lead believers aside; instead of teaching them the ways of the Lord. Satan and his agents are busy to corrupt the minds of young people who look toward heaven; they overcome many by drawing them to the love of mirth and pleasure, and into drinking their way to Hell! Multitudes on top of multitudes have decided that they would rather have religion, have erred through strong drink, and have been undone for ever. Now, how is it those in the body of Christ have begun to stand in the way of the sinner? When God has said, “their delight should be in the law of the LORD; and in his law should they meditate day and night,” (Psalm 1:1-2).
Being holy only means to make a u-turn and to do better! That is what sanctification and holiness is all about you pulling off the old in order to walk in the new!” it is a process, but are you willing to go face to face with God!
Are will you continue to make excuses?
