“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of The LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but The LORD will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising,” Isaiah 60:1-3.
One of the things The LORD is releasing me to say is that if the Church wants God’s greatest Glory, we will have to — and no doubt about it — DENY ourselves of the flesh and the temptation to be like the world!
Greater cannot come as long as the Church cares more about what others think, when they are walking according to the Will of God.
I am not talking about you twisting scripture to use it to use the Grace of God to sin, but I’m talking about those who have absolutely sold out to The Cross of Calvary!
i also believe that It is hard for those leaders who carry a pastoral anointing and who love and nurture the sheep, because you want to care for them, but you have to remember at all times:
- Who sent you;
- Who anointed you and
- What it was, that called you out to see the burning bush!
In this season, the spirit of Jezebel will use temper tantrums, gifts, lies, deception, manipulation, control and fear to get leaders to conform and to compromise God’s Word!
This is why Timothy said,
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierces themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness,” 1 Timothy 6:10-11.
Money and things of this world must be placed in the right perspective!
In other words, it is ONLY a resource to gain what we need to do in life; the things in life that support our everyday life style, but God is the One who controls our complete livelihood as Christians.
When we allow the things of this world to rule, we no longer are under the control of The Holy Spirit, but what controls us!
This is why Timothy warned both the leaders and the Church to set their priorities right — because Satan knows when we have not truly sold out to The LORD and it is his job to use the things of this world to tempt us out The Will of God!
I believe that The LORD in this season will reveal the hearts of those who have not truly sold out to him — just as He did when He revealed the heart of Jesus when Satan took him up into the mountains and offered him the world.
But Jesus passed the test, because He gave the enemy the Word of God!
Each time Satan came, Christ refused to Satan’s temptations. But, those who have compromised gospel music, fame, Facebook stats, likes, pulpit fame, Church numbers, their religion, politics, gifts and talents etc., as well as positions their true hearts, shall be revealed and exposed by The Holy Ghost!
I believe, as I prayed, The LORD is raising up true prophets who cannot be bought or sold-out to the things of this world, and they do not have the smell of the world on their mantles.
They are not just going along with the crowd and what is popular to man, but they are under the influence of Yahweh!
These anointed vessels will understand that it is all by The Grace of God that they stand. Their ministries, finances, provision, families, friends, etc., all have to do with what Yahweh wants, and that they move, live and have their every being, because they make decision based upon the reality of the one who has sent them, and not on the resources that surrounds them, because He is their everything!
“And of Gad he said, Blessed be he that enlargeth Gad: he dwelleth as a lion, and teareth the arm with the crown of the head.And he provided the first part for himself, because there, in a portion of the lawgiver, was he seated; and he came with the heads of the people, he executed the justice of The LORD, and his judgments with Israel,” Deuteronomy 33:20-21.
“So shall they fear the name of The LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of The LORD shall lift up a standard against him,” Isaiah 59:19.
“For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain,” Jeremiah 50:9.
