If you are an Apostle, why are you not trailblazing, establishing works, creating your own way, building, teaching, training, birthing souls, teaching economics, opening up the way of the Kingdom?
Stop sitting and waiting on others to do what you should know how to do!
Apostles, you need a backbone of boldness and structure. You also need to have the ability to teach and preach foundational truths!
You also should have miracles, signs and wonders operating within your ministry.
You should have maturity, humility and obedience operating in you. There should be love demonstrated and have the ability to change regions and enhance people.
You should have the ability to teach all nations and races as God sends you to different cultures.
You need a Kingdom mindset and the ability to teach more than spiritual things!
You need to be able to teach on government, education, family structure, media outlets, various arts, business and all areas of church establishment.
As a foundational layer of the Kingdom of God, all these areas impact what God is doing in the earth.
As a Apostle, you need to have the ability to help bring structure, balance and the Gospel to the region you are sent and assigned to.
There are far to many who say they are ‘Apostles’ yet who are operating in fear, intimidation and jealousy.
Being bitter because you don’t have large crowds following you, is not part of the mandate.
I have never seen so many in ministry who carry titles, yet are looking for ministry handouts from people.
Can I tell you, that in all my years of ministry, I have not once asked my leader to open his doors of ministry to me, or to create me a platform in any of his conferences or to endorse my ministry, or have I ever attempted to take advantage of him, ministry-wise, because he is my leader.
Can I tell you, that as far as I know, we have not preached in the same places, even though we have been in some of same regions.
I would never create any situation which would cause any discomfort in our relationship.
Because of that, he speaks of me with respect and honor to others concerning me, as a daughter and a Vessel of YAHWEH.
He also will call me to intercede when he faces situations that requires prayer and will ask for my advice on things of importance.
In this hour, I have lost sons and daughters because I teach them to work their visions and I don’t give them an easy way out.
If they are looking to me to build their work, or supply all the resources for the work, or send them through my doors, then they are operating off my anointing, my mandate, my vision and my assignment, which makes them a shadow, a clone and an imitator of me and they are not operating in their own identity, their own mandate or their assignment, because everything is from me!
Most in ministry don’t get this, so they get upset, throw out accusations and become offended because I won’t let them use my identity to create their platforms.
My job is to teach you how to operate in your own identity, how to build, how to make things work for the vision ABBA has given you.
I push them to create their own voice. If I don’t teach, train, push, pull and demand that they walk in their own identity and assignment, then I have failed them.
One thing I can say, that if you follow the teachings, training, instructions and directions and be willing to submit to the rigorous spiritual regiment that will be ordered up specifically for them, they will be who they are ordained to be and will do what they are called to do!
But I will not, I refuse to, I cannot, cripple, disable, or allow anybody to put me in a place which only ABBA should hold in their lives!
