I love the early morning hours after spending time with God just listening to Him speak.
I love my personal trainer, the Holy Ghost, who reveals the mysteries of God’s word and teaches me in depth the revelations that are poured out upon me. As I’m laying here, I keep hearing the words, GREEDY COWARDS!
I keep seeing people behind the pulpits, cowering behind, them but all you see is their hand held out as if they are waiting on something to be placed in it. These are preachers who won’t take a stand for the word of God, or preach the truth, but are afraid to open their mouths and call out the sins of the people.
They are saying, I won’t say anything as long as you continue to give me what I want. They won’t speak out against anything that will rock their financial boat. They are behind the pulpit, but they are a hidden voice full of compromise and deceit afraid to speak out against the unrighteousness for fear of losing their provision.
So many preachers are preaching only for the offerings and material gain that they can obtain. They are selling out to money and forgetting that their call to ministry was not based on how much money they can milk out of the people or how much they can obtain naturally.
Our emphasis in ministry should be and has always been preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ so that souls can be added daily to the Kingdom of God! When we don’t address the issues, correct with love the unrighteous behavior, cry out against sin, and act like we blind to the unholy ways of the people we are COWARDS.
Afraid to confront what we know will sometimes stir up controversy or warfare in our lives. I wonder why we don’t know that we will be persecuted for speaking the truth, we will encounter opposition for standing up for the word of God, we will be fought for our non compromising attitude against sin, and made to seem judgmental, and unloving, because we address the sin within the lives of the people.
My greatest battle is not with the people of the world, but it’s with those who say they love God, but refuse to change their wicked ways and upset with me, because I refuse to hold my peace, and sit back and let them walk in error and live a compromising lifestyle before the people, as they proclaim that Jesus is Lord.
Some of the people need to take the greediness out of heart and start standing up and preaching and teaching the truth. God is tired of the COWARDS that are saying they are soldiers but don’t have the ability to stand strong and courageous and have a fight in them. Don’t let greed cause you to hear these words:
Depart from me you worker of iniquity, I never knew you!
God has been dealing with me about different eagles, as an illustration to the Apostolic dimension of authority that is needed for the different regions I will enter in to preach and teach His word.
In this season, I’m going in like a harpy eagle, because of the broad range of demonic creatures I will have to destroy.
He said study on their eating habits their hunting skills etc and then compare it to the sphere and authority of the Apostolic grace upon your life.
I will be sharing the different eagle as God permits. The Harpy is one of the largest and most powerful eagle. The female is capable of destroying and killing prey that is bigger than them. They sit quietly and wait on their prey high in the tree for a long time and when they spot their prey they move swiftly. They cut their prey which is to big to carry off and kill into smaller pieces. This is a fearless eagle.
The Spirit of The Lord spoke and told me that as you go into the regions realized what mannerism of what eagle you need to study and spiritually move in that capacity. I’m sitting quietly now watching my prey but pretty soon and in a accelerated quick move I will swoop down and either carry it away in private to destroy it or cut it into pieces and destroy it piece by piece!
Either way, I’m going to kill whatever demon devil principalities ruler of darkness and spiritual wickedness that comes in my view !
