I know I will be stepping on some toes here, but I am impressed by the LORD to write about this subject.
As long as the Bride is not mature, the LORD will use leadership in His church and flock. Not to RULE, but to serve NOT to put down but to lift you up also in prayer!
Something is very wrong nowadays…...
We see 5-fold ministers abusing and misusing people out of the countries such as Pakistan and India Africa and so on. They say they come to minister because the LORD sends them, but in fact there is a double agenda. They make pictures (big crusades) put them on their website and smell the fame and act as Hollywood stars.
Instead of being busy with what we must do after the big crusade, taking care of the flock they rock, so to speak, and forget about how our Shepherd left the flock, to take care of one little lamb.
But also the ministers out of those countries misuse and abuse the 5-fold ministers.
As soon as they think they smell money, you are called mummy and they act as if you are called to be there apostle. But sooner or later truth comes out and it turns out that they have 7 apostles, who all are called mummy or daddy… and whose name is added to websites, even if there is no contact anymore, to attract others to donate money and so on…
Mummy and Daddy… is this the right attitude? NO! Spiritual children suppose to be treated as adults and as persons who carry the Holy Spirit also!
The reason we call them spiritual children is, to point out you and the spiritual “child” are committed to the LORD first and to each other, to walk together for a certain period to help, serve, spiritual feed, teach, advise, mentor and coach, until the LORD makes it clear it is enough!
Back to the ministers in the countries I just mentioned:
Many claim to have orphanages, but when you talk to the LORD and look into their ministry deeper you see expensive studios, media equipment and they travel and travel….
Where is that money going which people donate to their orphanage? Also pastors leaving the precious people who need spiritual food, desperately, to travel to the wealthy countries to gain FAME! Instead of trusting the LORD that He is the provider, and if we trust HIM, HE WILL PROVIDE!
I felt the entire morning that I need to put this in the open and send it as a message because it is so wrong!
Leadership is about serving in the Kingdom of the LORD! We count the other higher always no matter if you are a leader or not… But we must realize that a COMMITMENT is serious.
I myself always do things when the LORD tells me to. I do not commit myself as an apostle to churches, when the LORD is not telling me to do so…
When He tells me, sends me I see it and treat it as a SERIOUS commitment! NOT and I mean NEVER a playing game!
I am not here to please people or gaining numbers (how many people follow). I am into pleasing my LORD and not try to gain followers or fame but feed the flock with HIS food and through HIS Spirit. I did not call myself HE did and others recognized the call and send me (in a biblical way).
First, The Spirit sets you apart and then people send you.
I see the fight that is happening behind closed doors (Abba gives revelations), ministers fighting against each other, churches fighting against each other, and instead of respecting the choice the LORD made (sending helping hands in ministries). They talk them out of each other’s teams and even those just converted are placed in leader offices and getting a task where the LORD did NOT speak and the person is not ready because they need to grow mature spiritually speaking.
PLAYING GAMES! The LORD told me: “Some are more serious at their work, than about MY Kingdom and Kingdom calls!”
May we repent and get more serious about the Father’s Kingdom, HIS flock and HIS church!
I rather fall into the hands of people who can kill my body, than into the hands of my God who has power over my soul…. SELAH !!
Blessings and Shalom over you!
