Be Where He Needs You to Be!
The Spirit of the LORD just spoke to me that there are those of you whom He is about to exactly place where He needs them to be.
You are about to move, change, relocate, transition. The finances are about to manifest and you are about to go!
Your labor will not be in vain. God is removing you from your training ground now the place of affliction that was used to get you Spiritually prepared.
You see, what happens to many is they remain and establish were they were only supposed to train and be made, and that’s why they struggle and experience warfare, and never accomplish what they have been prepared for.
They allowed a temporary training place to become a permanent place of purpose, not realizing that their disobedience have them in a warfare zone.
When God says MOVE, GO, VACANT, LEAVE, we wrestle and fight to stay, because we assume that the place is our assignment, because we went through much there.
We let our wilderness experience become our promise land. Somehow we assume that this is the place that satan is trying to run us from when in reality God is trying to remove you from so that you can go to your promise land.
You are not in a battle for your destiny you are in a transition that you don’t want to accept! Get before the LORD and hear the Spirit and not your emotions. It’s time to go now your fruit blessing purpose destiny awaits your arrival!
Go in peace don’t look back and this time God is going to burn the bridge so you won’t retreat back to the familiar place!
A growing trend among the Body of Christ is bullying in various forms. So many people having taken on a spirit that causes them to gain more pleasure out of controlling or humiliating other people.
For some reason this attitude is overtaking many in leadership positions to the point they are becoming emotionally and spiritually abusive toward the members. They are even engrafting the congregation to wage war against individuals that they want to intimidate and subdue.
Anybody who opposes them or questions them is bullied over the pulpit or through acts of disgrace or humiliation. They will not allow them to work in the ministry or they constantly berate them openly before the people.
They allow others to criticize and verbally attack them. We also have the mass bullying that takes effect in the Body of Christ if somebody falls into a temptation of sin. We use social media outlets to ruin their name and reputation and to destroy their credibility.
We will wage a campaign of terror against them to cause them to be silent or to surrender to our way of thinking. Then there is members of the congregation that will devise attacks against those they are jealous of.
They will taunt them gossip about them and turn other members against them to bully them out the church or a position. Then you have the members that will bully the leader by discrediting them or withholding financial support to intimidate the leader and bring them under their control.
Yes, Church Bullying has become a growing problem lately and if you stand up against it you are bullied by those doing the bullying and anybody associated with them. Unless we in the Body of Christ don’t start dealing with these issues we are not going to continue to see growth among the church.
After all what person looking for hope and help wants to become a part of something that is dysfunctional and acting worst then what they are running from.
Church we have to do better!
