 Does your Title Matter?


The Cain & Abel Spirit

The Cain and Abel spirit is certainly in operation in the family of God.  The spirit of hate anger and murder arises because one individual seems to be acceptable to God while another isn’t.

Hate is not just an emotion but it produces actions.  This spirit comes to discontinue the flow of God’s destiny in someone’s life.

It’s main objective is to killed out the persons that are able to usher in right worship in the church.  Remember Cain got upset because what he offered to God as a sacrifice was rejected while Abel sacrifice was acceptable.  Cain anger was a result of him not wanting to honor what The Lord had said.

Like so many in this hour, jealousy and anger come because people refuse to walk in obedience to what The Lord requires.  But yet, they expect to be blessed and when they are not, they target the one who has obtained the favor of God.  They rise up against them and when the opportunity arises, they will kill their ability to worship God with their obedience!

Are You Willing to Die to Self?

In order to maintain an atmosphere for miracles signs and wonders you must be willing to die totally to self.

We can’t keep our flesh under subjection if we don’t stay consecrated before The Lord.  Someone asked me,  “How do you stay in a place were you can be so obedient?”  It’s because I dedicate myself to a certain amount of hours each day of being in His presence and studying the word and listening to Him.

I don’t allow anyone or anything to interfere with the time I have committed to Him.  It takes discipline commitment dedication and determination to not allow things to deviate you from your course of consecration.  Many times we only allot God time when we are in need of something from Him or to make ourselves look super deep before the public.

I believe in everyday being a day of consecration and that we should set aside uninterrupted time to be before The Lord to seek Him to worship & praise Him.  Fasting & prayer are such a vital necessity that needs to be utilized continual in order to maintain the ability to walk in the Spirit so that we won’t surrender to the cries of the flesh.

Being consecrated & committed to The Lord gives us the faith to walk in perfect obedience to the will & ways of God!!!   So many people lack a personal motivation to set themselves aside to seek The Lord.  They only fast & pray when there is a corporate assignment to the church but won’t make that same commitment in their everyday life.

In order to be stand fast and unmovable we must crucify these carnal and fleshly desires and bring our lives into obedience to the will of God!!  What we need is a consecrated lifestyle!!!

 Does your Title Matter?

I am curious as to how people are going from title to title every week.  What is the excitement you see in wanting to hold these high titles?

There is a dimension of power and authority that is release as well as demonic attacks and assaults from the kingdom of satan.  Some don’t even understand the warfare that is connected to walking in the five fold ministries offices.

Persons wanted to be Apostles & Prophets and don’t have enough power to rebuke a flea or enough wisdom to figure out how to swat a fly.  They have not gone through anything or even had a visitation or experience the presence of God.

We want to be validated without God’s proper elevation.  We have not even learned how to win a soul but want to preach to large crowds.  We have been promoted by man but demoted by God yet we keep up this pretense of authority because we wear titles as a fashion statement rather than a God given mandate.

We endorse people because of the size of their wallets purses or check books and we loose these unproven uncalled vessels upon the Body of Christ who come in and practice on the people of God and bring in confusion and chaos instead of salvation and deliverance.  The Lord is not pleased with our endorsement of those who are walking in sinful ways or living disobedient lives.

We cannot in all sincerity, say that we are leaders in the Kingdom if we are not properly protecting the Kingdom of God against wolves and false apostles prophets and teachers and zealous people that are walking in titles and callings, but who are not endorsed by The Lord.

Until those in proper authority stand up and open their mouths and teach Kingdom principles and order and rebuke and correct, we will forever be plagued by an onslaught of persons walking in five fold titles who are unlearned, untrained, unproven, unqualified and unauthorized to operate in the Kingdom of God!!

REALTALK:   Not everyone is five fold!  Some are ushers, helpers, janitors, but remember, they are all important in the Kingdom.

FOR REAL:   Stay in your lane if God has anointed you to clean the toilet do it to the glory of God.  Just know that when you are out His will you open yourself up to attacks that wasn’t assigned to you!!!

  1. 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 (NKJV)
    Unity and Diversity in One Body
    12 For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into[a] one Spirit. 14 For in fact the body is not one member but many.
    15 If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? 18 But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. 19 And if they were all one member, where would the body be?
    20 But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. 23 And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty, 24 but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it, 25 that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.
    27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
