Are You in God’s Team?
God doesn’t assemble a team for it to just sit down or just to have board meetings or to stay in the four walls of the church.
When a team is formed it has a agenda and a target. Where is your place of attack your region of focus.
Find it and prepare to launch out into that area and obey the LORD. What good is it to have a team and nothing to do because you don’t know the mandate mission or purpose of it being formed. You need two teams:
APOSTOLIC WARFARE TEAM:
These are the persons that are trained to not only operate in a administrative but their main focus is spiritual capacities. They are the soldiers and warriors assigned to do intercession to map out the war zones in the region to be the watchmen and gatekeepers.
They are intercessors and carry a heavy prophetic mandate upon their lives. They know the enemies strongholds the territorial spirits and principalities over the region. They are the watchers the ones sent to spy and learn the territory.
They are persons of combat and they are hands on individuals that fight war and conquer.
APOSTOLIC COUNCIL TEAM:
These are the persons that take the information that has been gather by the Apostolic Warfare Team and analyzed and prepare strategies of attacks and war. They are the ones given the wisdom and the ability to plan out the attacks that will ensure victory for the teams.
They are the ones that count up the total cost of the assignment and plan ways to sustain it. These are more administrative because of their ability to think quickly and precisely.
They are observers and they also take note of who is able to survive the assignment. They are the directors and operators of the assignment.
You need these two sets of teams to be able to effectively conquer a region and to complete the mission given. Once you assemble your team then it’s time to go to work not to wonder why you are all there!
Integrity! Character! Behavior! Honesty!
These words should mean much to a person in a leadership position. It’s those little foxes that destroy the vine. And yes, I’m addressing this issue because of those that have been deceived out of their monies and their destiny because they came in covenant with somebody that they thought was HONORABLE!
PLAGIARISM: The PRACTICE of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own. It occurs when a writer duplicates another writer’s language or ideas then calls the work his or her own.
Most honest and truthful writers make sure that they credit a person work they are “quoting” with the author’s name. On Facebook, even though it’s a social media, there are persons who are just dishonest and our creating a false image about themselves, by taking other men and women of God’s words and copying them exactly, then passing them off as their own.
People are deceived into thinking that the person is being used by God and are holy and righteous and a person whom they can trust to follow, by the things they are posting. They are building an audience through deceit and dishonest measures.
People are then pulled into their web of deceit and they are then manipulated by the person into coming into covenant with them. People are sowing into them, because of stolen words that help them in their situation! Which now brings me to this point I want to make.
Men and women of God, I never have a problem with anybody SHARING my posts to help the people, but what I do have an issue with is when you take by post and copy them and put your name on them as if you wrote them yourself.
You then become a liar and thief and lose your credibility within the Body of Christ, because somebody will see it and know you copied those words and are passing them off as your own.
Precious hearts, know that God always reveals the culprits that do this some way or somehow. What many of you don’t know is I have somebody who copy writes everything I post in any place I post on social media, because I’m writing a book.
What is even more amazing are those that try to make people think they got the revelation from God, when the things that are posted are timed by Facebook, to show when something was shared.
Integrity and character means so much to the LORD and also to people of integrity. Many of you don’t like a person, but you lurked on their page so you can steal their material because you don’t have a relationship with God to seek Him to get your own revelation.
Its nothing wrong with sharing just don’t lie about what you share! And for those who will try to say, “It’s helping,” so it shouldn’t be an issue, let me say this to you. The issue is not in the sharing of the words! The issue is in the actions of how they share them!!
A person with no deceptive ways has no problem with crediting who wrote something, but when they used those words to gain monetary means of support from people, then people we do have a problem.
Some persons even connect with them as mentors or spiritual coverings, because of the revelations they see under their name that belong to someone else.
So yes, it could be damaging to somebody spiritual life and growth to come into covenant with an false personality that was created by somebody that is actually posing as somebody they are not.
