In this hour we need to be in precise alignment with God to make sure we don’t miss divine directions instructions connections!
This is a critical time and our obedience is vital to this move of God taking place. Don’t miss out by allowing small things to take your focus.
Set your face to obey God and keep it moving!
The Sugary Gospel
There is so much sugar and artificial ingredients in it until all it can do is cause rottenness and decay!
This sugar coated, water down gospel, is now being challenged and it’s a shame that people will rather consumed what can damage them then to eat, than what can grow strengthen and build them!
Serving the Leader
Be able to recognize a parasite before it burrows itself inside your inner circle.
There are those who come to assist and those who just come to you. You have to discern the motives intent and condition of the heart of those who walk with you.
And while on that subject, I notice that many are attacking those who honor their leader by serving them with honor and humility.
When I walked with my leader as his assistant, what I did for him was because I honored his position in the Kingdom and his love and work for the LORD. Whatever I did, I did to make his load lighter and to give him more freedom to fast and pray and do what he was called to do.
Nobody forced me to honor him. I saw his work and dedication his commitment of obedience and his passion for seeing people set free. So I ask him each day how could I serve him in making his load lighter.
He didn’t ask, because I was connected. I knew when he needed help with something or needed an errand run that I could do for him.
Those who work with me, I don’t put demands on naturally, even though I have some who say it’s an honor to serve me in whatever capacity God allows them. But what I do is make sure they are accountable for the spiritual part of ministry – praying, fasting, interceding, covering and doing warfare in the Spirit. I don’t play about.
My reason for serving, was this person truly watches for my soul and if I could help him remain peaceful and positioned to hear and obey God, I’m willing to help.
Being able to travel and have hands-on experiences in ministry was awesome. Serving, gave me the authority to learn spiritual warfare, to learn the do’s and don’t of ministry. I got to see miracles signs and wonders; to meet some awesome men and women of God.
I learn spiritual protocol and etiquette. I was able to learn administrative responsibilities. I saw much and learned plenty and always remained teachable.
So me serving and walking as a adjutant with my leader was not because I was being taken advantage of, but because I honored my leader. No matter that there a few leaders who do take advantage of those who work with them, there are some great leaders who are training teaching with a heart for the people.
All leaders are not trying to take advantage of those who serve them, and all those coming to serve are not trying to use their leader!
Some spiritual parents are demolishing the relationship with their spiritual children by releasing their lust into them!
Several of those connected spiritually, are having an unnatural spiritual relationship with each other.
There are those in leadership taking advantage of those who are suppose to be getting trained and taught by them. They were sent to them to be mentored and covered by their wisdom, not to be used as an object of sexual pleasure.
This situation definitely needs to be addressed strongly in the Body of Christ, because so many are wounded hurt and destroyed right now because of a lustful leader who couldn’t keep their hands and body to themselves!
I’m praying for wounded inflicted children in the Body of Christ!
