Focusing on Titles, or God’s Glory?

A Code Blue Release

I been sitting here on my floor for about an hour as the Spirit of The LORD said tell the people, TO PRAY AGAIN THE FORECAST HAS BEEN CHANGED!

I was riding early and the power of God came upon me and The LORD spoke and said, IT’S A CODE BLUE RELEASE!  He said to me it’s time for the proof to be delivered.

The portal has been opened.  You have to go through it with force, because He has moved His will into position and the margin to be in place in the exact timing of the divine release, is small.

Because there have been so many distractions and situations happening, many won’t be focused enough to hear God and step into their timing of release.  Everything is in alignment and harmony with the Kairos timing of God.  The supernatural intervention of God is in the appointed timing of the purpose of God and He shall act on our behalf.

Joel 2:25 is in full operation the years are being restored and the blessings that have been eaten shall now be brought back and restored released experienced!

“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you,”   Joel 2:25.


Understanding Confidence

For your information, some people are not arrogant, they are fearless.  They just know who they are and the rights they have in Christ.

They won’t let you devalue them.  They refuse to hide their identity, because people are intimidated.  They won’t let you speak negatively over their lives.  They refuse to surrender themselves to another person’s ego.  They won’t back down from truth and they do not run from the devil.

They refused to be bullied by leaders organizations or denominations.  They won’t surrender their freedom in Christ to religion.  They don’t fear man, neither do they take down their character, morals or attitude, to be anyone friend.

They stand bold without fear facing every challenge with the I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me mentality.

They are not arrogant.  They just know greater is He within them then He in the world.  Don’t mistake confidence for pride.  It is a big difference!


Focusing on Titles, or God’s Glory?

 

If a person is not careful, they can make their title an idol.

When you talk more about your title than The Kingdom of God and the word of God, then you have become obsessed with it.

You don’t have to keep reminding people of who you are and what you are called to do.  All your teachings don’t have to be on how anointed you are, and all your testimonies should not be about what you did, what you said, how you prayed, how you laid hands.

I think we forget that ministry is not about us, and the glory of whatever is done, as God uses us goes directly to God!  No matter how great God uses us, we need to remain in a humble position and a servant mindset.

You don’t have to demand people to acknowledge who you are they will know it by the fruits you display and the works produced through your life.  The anointing truly does speak for itself and people can literally see the Glory of God upon you and your life.

Why do we glorify the titles?  I have seen those in leadership absolutely insult, browbeat, and go as far as bullying people, because they didn’t publicly announce their title.  The Body of Christ is so title hungry, until they start making up titles so that they can seem more important than someone else!

They seem to think that the more names they add in front of their name, makes them more important than their counterparts.  We have become so prideful, until a title means more than pleasing God, living holy, walking righteous and being obedient and humble.  We love to hear our title called more than our name!

I have seen persons get saved one day, and then the next day demand you call them a “Chief Apostle of the Revolutionary Prophets of the latter day church of Apostolic Jurisdiction of Evangelism Fellowship!!”   And they get fighting mad and call you into a meeting, because they say you disrespecting them, because you didn’t call their name in your service.

Personally I don’t like introductions before I preach, because God told me, “When you open your mouth, they will be able to see whom I have made you in the Kingdom, and don’t do long bios anymore.”  I have seen people have five pages about their natural accomplishments, then get up and preach with no anointing, no wisdom, no demonstration of power and authority, because of PRIDE.

God keeps me in a humble state, because one of the things He dealt with me about when He called me, is how people can get lifted up in pride, because of titles position and gifts.

Maintaining a lifestyle of consecration, keeps your flesh under subjection and your mindset pure.  Another thing He said was, “When you stand before My people and let Me be in control, your education, your years in ministry, won’t mean anything in My sight – just your obedience and submission, as I use you and put My word in your mouth that will bring forth fresh revelation and knowledge.”

As we do what we are called to do, let’s maintain a humble spirit lets remember that only what we do for Christ will last, and all the glory for what God allows us to do, the places He allows us to go, the doors He allows us to walk through, belongs completely to God.

Even though He said He would make our name great, our name will never be more powerful awesome wonderful or greater than God.  If the people are praising you more than praising God whom you served, then people we have a problem!

Giving God His glory always!


Building with Stolen Materials

You can’t build a house from another man’s materials.

If God has given you a vision, He won’t supply it with stolen goods.  Remember, everybody knows their material.

Too many are copying the ministry of someone else, trying to make a name for themselves or pattern their vision after another.

They are taking their ideas their sermons and cloning them in their ministry instead of seeking God for the plans and strategies necessary for their own ministry.

NOTE:  What works for somebody else, doesn’t mean it will work for your own vision!  Don’t get upset when you don’t get the same results of somebody else’s ministry, because you are trying to incorporate something in your vision, that never was suppose to fit in it.

Stay in your own lane!
