“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.”” John 14:23-24
I seek no great things for myself; there’s no ambition with me.
At this time in my life, I don’t know what God has in store for my life. But I do know this, I want to remain in that place to commune with my LORD and make Him my only ambition.
Once you have found that intimate place that is hidden from man, everything becomes clear about God’s Plans.
The life of a believer in Christ is a long journey and you learn much every day. When we truly have found The LORD and laid down any idol or anything that keeps us from Him, we are on a good path to become like Him.
There is no easy way to describe the path we shall walk, but we must remember that The LORD walked it out for you. He didn’t make a mistake and if you are going through much suffering know that we are being groomed for the Kingdom plans with the KING.
Through death to self and death to the opinions of man, there can be no ambitions!
Our ambitions are to continue to die so He can live big through us.
God himself has brought me through many deaths and the loss of all things, even those most precious.
When you attend to The Will of God, you must learn to die daily. In attending to our King, we must learn to lay down all selfish ambitions in service to God.
People may find that puzzling, because they see themselves in some exalted role or destiny — they believe the world waits for them to show up and out!
I am not talking about true believers, for they will be very different. But to really know a true minister, is not charisma or the way they dress and even what message they bring.
Did you know you can be busy for God — and be very wrong?
Everything must be in alignment with God’s Word, and if they don’t line up, you had better get out of there.
Accountability is not an option. We all need to be accountable — especially if we are in Ministry!
We all have seen the ministries on television, or so-called ministries. If the people do not seek The LORD in Prayer and the Word of God and die daily, it is so very easy to be so deceived.
Don’t look at the idol, or preacher who seems to be worthy of reward! Just look at how many people attend those shows!
Don’t let feelings guide you, your feelings can fool you! Satan twists the truth and he has a lot of them that are all twisted, and they are getting others twisted and it goes on and on…
Where are the true prophets and ministers who stay true to God?
What does God’s Word tell us about such people?
I saw a short clip of a show in passing online, and they were singing and worshipping. But what disturbed me were the women on stage were leading the worship wearing skin tight clothing and what does that leave to the imagination?
I was shocked to see that — and the short shorts in a Church meeting? That is just one sin to watch for — lust and perversion in The House!
We must return to The LORD in The Bible with all our heart — because there is so much world in The Church, no one thinks that holiness is right anymore!
To find The LORD in this difficult time with deceptions and strong delusions, He is still able to hear you, but He won’t compete with the city slicker preachers!
They are everywhere and in every form of media — and they barter for blessings as you are sending money to their cause — and their cause, is self!
We are in this world we live in, and you can turn on a radio, television, or some type of media player and get deceived as those who are leaders of the various movements, and the majority of The Church has gotten tipped way over from the way The Bible says The Church shall be!
The LORD calls a Minister and then He removes them away from the rest.
Then He takes that vessel through such hardship, that He must temper the person to shed all ambitions.
Those who want their name in lights and want to be in authority, without dying to the flesh — is a very bad combo!
A true vessel of God lives a lifestyle of death to self. It’s about being buried with him and risen as He is.
It’s about the motives of the heart. If we are still self-serving — a self-promoter — whom we are serving?
Whom are you seeking when you want to fit the group of your ambitions? Birds of a feather flock together!
People who truly are called to preach on television and publicly by God, will do so by death.
A true servant of God must die to represent The LORD as a public speaker.
Serving The LORD is death to self so The LORD can rise in us! When the vessel is dead to ambition and any outward shows that point to themselves, God will use them.
I have died a thousand deaths. I can say that I have lived in the back seats and ate what was left of the crumbs from the religious tables.
I could not hold my head up due to the religious abuse, and once they have you after many promises, you find out these are much worse in The Church than in the world!
It’s no wonder why people aren’t attracted to The Church anymore!
I do know that before someone can go into Public Ministry and do it as led by God, that person must die to ambition and become humble and glory not in the flesh.
Those who are in Public Ministry for awards, benefits, and money. It’s a racket — and the ways of the world are in those 501c3 religious corporations!
There are many on every corner, who have turned The Church into a corporation with executives.
The House of God is to be a place of Prayer for all people, but many have made it den of thieves.
The House that God built is no more God’s house but mans and the only servants that can speak for that house are those that say YES! YES! YES!
What is wrong with this picture?
