Let me just put this out here for these bogus spiritual children who feel like a leader is supposed to take care of them, while you are walking around there, carrying these five-fold titles: GET YOU A JOB!
I have had several leaders talking about the attacks they are experiencing from spiritual children, because they won’t take care of them or allow them to use them.
Too many say they are covered by somebody, but all they want is somebody to take care of them and pay their bills!
I am seeing leader’s homes being torn apart because the husband/ wife are paying somebody’s bills like they are taking care of them, like a lover or spouse.
God didn’t tell us, as leaders, to pay the bills of able bodied adults who can work on a job, but are hollering they are in full time ministry, but don’t preach anywhere and are doing no kingdom work, but are sitting at home wanting people to give them tithes, offerings and seeds, so their personal bills can be paid.
Some of these are just lazy and have found a way to get money given to them, because they don’t want to work and don’t like to work.
Listen, as a spiritual parent we are not:
- Your personal ATM machine. The only time some of you even claim your leader is when you have a need.
- Your natural parents. We are not a crutch who will let you lay up on us because you spoil.
- Going to let you control us. The temper tantrums won’t work and you can’t intimidate us with threats.
- Allow you to attempt to draw others into your little issues against us because we won’t let you use us.
- Going to keep giving to you and you have never given us a slice of gum. Love works two ways. Some of you want your leaders to give to you but you don’t sow into your leaders.
- Going to play the social media game with you were you put little subliminal messages about us on the internet trying to attack us because we want give you the attention you want. We your leader not your man or woman.
- Going to drop everything to answer your call about the same thing that we have already given you instructions about. You calling ten times a day like we going to change what we said.
- Going to play who has the best prophecy for you. Listen if you’re getting advice from everybody but your leader or not listening to your leader when they give you advice perhaps you need to have one of those that are saying what you want covering you.
- Going to keep letting you use us to pray for your finances and every time you get a blessing you sow to everybody but them and then once you get broke look for them to bail you out of your problems. This one right here burns me up with righteous indignation.
- Going to let you talk to us any kind of way. If you can’t respect your leader then you don’t need them covering you. Find somebody you can respect so you can continue to grow.
- Going to let you walk in error and we not correct you. If you want to have your way like a bratty child perhaps you need to be in daycare not part of a ministry.
- Going to keep going through the same issues with you. It’s time for deliverance after while God is going to tell them to let you go because you don’t want to be free.
These are a few issues that are growing in the Body of Christ.
Spiritual children, especially those in leadership, are looking for leaders to take care of them while they sit at home acting like they called full time into ministry.
That’s not what a Spiritual Parent or Covering is called to do, to just give you money or pay your bills.
Until you recognize it you need to go to the altar and lay there until you get some understanding!
