Apostle Paul was a great man of God when it came to boldness and speaking God’s word with authority and power.
He said that he had the boldness in God to speak to the people of God the gospel of God, in the midst of much opposition! Why? Because of his obedience to the LORD!
I believe that in this season God is teaching His people how to be both bold and courageous when it comes to dealing with the opposition and speaking His Word with great boldness without fear.
God began to say to me that it is not in how loud the man or the woman of God speaks, but it is both the power and authority that they demonstrate that will get the job done in this season!
Volume is loud, capacity, cubic, measurement; size, magnitude, mass, and or extent.
Apostle Paul said, “For our exhortation and encouragement was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile: but as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.”
Hallelujah, God is not looking for fake shining stars but people who are genuine and real who want to serve him out of a pure heart!
Those that are not out to swindle or hoodwink his people into seeing him or themselves in a light or a magnitude that does not exist!
Those who go into neighborhoods and stand in front of a church that is not theirs and pretend it’s theirs just so they can deceive and market themselves as being somebody they are not!
Or those pretending their ministry is Mega when it is actually depleted of funds or those who pretend they driving a Benz and they driving a station wagon or a mini van! Is this wrong in itself?
Of course not but what is wrong is when we market ourselves with gimmicks and lies and God has not elevated us in that vocation of wealth or ministry deceiving the people!
Help us Holy Ghost! God begin to say to me that their are so many people in the Kingdom of God coming up with gimmicks and scams to deceive, trick and to manipulate the people of God into giving money or becoming apart of their ministry instead of trusting the Holy Ghost to place folk where they need to go in the body of Christ! (Sheep Stealers)
And, waiting on God to elevate and to exalt them with the Abraham blessings he wants and promised to give!
For, Paul said, “Neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; (desiring what Somebody else has: Absalom spirit) God is witness: nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ.
But we were gentle among you, (Meaning they always had the right agenda and motives when it came to God’s flock and never sought to take advantage of them because of their vulnerability) even as a nurse cherisheth her children: So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.
People of God the LORD has not just called for you to sow into your leader but for your leader is also sow into your lives; as well!
And, no leader should ever intimidate or manipulate the sheep into giving; especially when you know the LORD will touch the people’s heart to give like he did the book of Acts!
Each man giving freely and willingly all that God had touched their hearts to give!
The Apostles rebuked Ananias and his wife, Sapphira because they also had sold a field, kept part of the profit from the sale and Ananias only laid a part of the money at the apostles’ feet.
However, Ananias made a pretense of having given all the proceeds. (This volume was fake and for a show) This hypocritical show may have fooled some, but not Peter, who had the gift of discerning of spirits and was was filled with the power of the Spirit.
Because, Peter knew instantly that Ananias was lying — not just to him but to God — and exposed his hypocrisy then and there.
Ananias fell down and died (Acts 5:4). And, when Sapphira showed up, she, too, lied to Peter and to God, saying that they had donated the entire proceeds of the sale of the land to the church.
When her lie had been exposed, she also fell down and died at Peter’s feet, (Acts 5).
It is a dangerous thing to lie to the Prophet and to God! There is no reason for the church to become mass manipulators at promising to give money and scheming and manipulating the churches out of money when we know our source (Holy Ghost) and help comes from God!
The LORD loves a cheerful giver and it is not in how loud (volume/ measure) you are in your giving and wanting to be seen like Ananias and Sapphira were that counts but it is in the sincerity of your giving that counts!
I don’t know why God is taking me this way but I must obey the Holy Ghost!
For, Paul said that he remembered how that his labour and travail was both night and day was because they would not be chargeable unto any of you, for they preached the gospel of God unto you without charge.
And, that the people were a witnesses, and how that God also was his witness, how holy and justly and blamelessly they behaved themselves among those that they had a relationship with that believed.
Yes, we are not to muzzle the ox that tread out the corn, the labor is worthy of his or her reward, but far too many have begun to use gimmicks, lies, deception and manipulation to trick God’s people into doing what God has not spoken for them to do or to release in this season all because they are walking contrary to God’s will! (1 Thessalonians 2:3-10 KJV).
