People want your anointing but don’t want to be connected to you! It’s amazing how people will connect to a gift but won’t form a relationship with the person. As I watch people in ministry I scratch my head at how people will invite persons with big names to connect to and use their gift to raise money or gain fame because they have them at their ministry but personally don’t like them or speak to them outside of what is necessary to get what they want from them.
It’s so sad to see the magnitude of manipulation that goes on among the Body of Christ! The devil is having such a laugh at those that think they are truly popular but in reality all the people want is the talent or gift they have to offer. They care less about having any kind of fellowship or relationship with them.
Maybe if we would actually pray and fast and seek God about these preachers whom we feel are anointed and full of power, we will find that all they have is a gift. And a gift operates without God approval or Spirit attach to it!
Nobody should be caught up in a person talent or gift. It’s the anointing that destroys yokes, not how good you can preach or how great you can sing. So many are operating in the flesh in this hour and we are so gullible that we are easily fooled. We want our flesh pacified but not our soul saved. We will go to services because of who is preaching instead of seeking for a place where the presence and power of God prevails.
We are looking for a temporary fix instead of a eternal change. That’s why we stay away from services where The Lord will show up and purify and cleanse us and reveal to us that we are in need of deliverance. That’s why we turn away from preachers that preach truth or are able to discern the issues that we are trying to hide because we don’t want to be free just want to get blessed.
We don’t want to hear the real word of God we just want entertainment. It’s time out for all the foolery going on in the Body of Christ. God wants holy righteous and consecrated vessels that are willing to do the work of The Lord without trying to become an idol to the people or want to steal His glory!!
