Stop Mourning a Familiar Place
I’m yet in the overflow from that word God gave me on last night, STOP MOURNING A FAMILIAR PLACE.
Sometimes when God speaks to us to move we don’t make the move because we have allowed a familiar atmosphere to become a crutch to us. We don’t embrace that new season because we become comfortable with the blessings elevation of the old. We stay in the deadness of the old because it yet feels right but we are stuck with no increase no elevation no promotion.
Nothing more can come forth because all God gave you for that season has come forth. It’s time to move. It’s time to shift it’s time for more. That season is dead arise and go into the promise.
You may have had a blessing you may have had a miracle you may have had a move of God but now it’s time to receive the promise! Yet praising Him for being released unchained untied from the old season. Greater is coming now!
Biblical Interactions between Christians
Some of these persons calling themselves Apostles and Prophets who all need to take a course in character and integrity.
They need to take ten steps backwards and sit twenty rows back. It doesn’t matter how much you can preach or prophesy, if you are gossiping, sowing discord, and causing division, you are of the devil.
Gifts are not impressive if the character of the one with the gift is tore up. Messy leaders are causing so much chaos and confusion in the Body of Christ.
I’m seeing leaders trying to put others in their mess. Then the person they pulled into the petty fights they are having with another leader, has no clue what’s going on.
I just told a Man of God tonight that the position you hold requires you to have been mature, before stepping into it. Having tantrums, being easily offended, throwing off on social media, should not be coming from someone of your spiritual standing. Our level of maturity as leaders is terrible.
We’re jealous, having Facebook wars, and twitter fights, arguing through posts.
The bible says, if you think your brother (that includes sisters also) has something with you, then go to them privately and personally. And if you have an accusation against a leader, you need a witness and make sure they alright, because people lie, and will get their friends to lie for them.
Too many people are thinking and acting carnally, but then have the audacity to act super deep. If God is talking to us, and dealing with us, half as much as we say, then it should show up in our character and attitude.
I for one, am tired of all this strife and division among people with all these high titles. Where is the maturity and being able to settle disagreements in a godly and civil way and knowing how to keep others out of petty mess. My advice is get somewhere and sit down.
it’s the example of the leaders who have the people treating each other the way they do! Hollering you, not messy and your name is the one that is in all the mess. It’s time to get it together and stop all these silly wars.
It’s enough work to do be done to keep all of us busy winning souls until Jesus comes back. If people will stop being in competition with each other and know their identity and stay in their lane we could eliminate seventy percent of the fighting going on in the body of Christ. As Smokey the bear says, Only you can prevent Forest fires. Let’s get these tongues under control.
NOTE: I do have duct tape for sale for those that may need some help in keeping their mouth close!!
A Testimony of Victory
For three days, I have been in warfare against demons and forces that keep coming to threaten my life if I continue to preach the gospel. Even today, I encountered the spirit of death. The enemy trying to set up assignments, trying to bring fear, but he couldn’t have known that death don’t scare me, any besides God keeps intervening on my behalf.
Even on my last assignment, the devil thought he was going to set a death trap up, but God allow me to drive hundreds of miles on a tire that the wheel bearing was gone. The Lord allowed me to go to the assignment, come back, and then, let the car mess up. We got to the mechanic and he tried to figure out why the tire didn’t come off. And yet we are alive.
Even the sinner, acknowledged that God must be on my side, for us to drive with no wheel bearing. I know that I’m on a great assignment in this hour, and that in this hour, the warfare against the assignment we have, shall be hard. But the scriptures that has kept me through my walk are Isaiah 54:15-17, Luke 10:18-19, Psalm 91.
I stand on these words along with Ephesians 6:10-18. But I keep striving and speaking what The Lord gives me because of these two scriptures right here knowing that I have the full armor of God on and the host of heaven protecting me at all times.
“And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak,” Ephesians 6:19-20.
My life, my tongue, my mouth, belong to God! Greater is coming. Doors for ministry are opening to preach the gospel And yet, even after all these years in ministry, I’m yet asking God why did you chose me for this destiny this mission this mandate?
The anointing cost me so much, but to see my Savior face is worth it all!
I’m weeping as I type this, because I am thinking of the times I should had been dead, lost my mind, the fights and struggles, and to know God trusted me to handle it all and to obey Him, regardless of what I had to go through. To suffer for Christ and to see Him when it’s all over is worth it all.
Excuse me, I need to go worship. Thanks for listening to this testimony of victory today! GOD BLOCK IT!
