Teaching versus Impartation
I realized this morning that no amount of teaching can replace what comes by impartation.
We learn as others impart the truth in us, or we end up with knowledge without any power to affect change or to produce fruit.
The Gospel (the full measure of ministering Christ, from salvation and growing into maturity to walk and live in Union with Him), is to be PREACHED (communicated and imparted in Living Words and through personal life example).
It is only in impartation that the Word becomes Powerful and effective in us.
Why? Because the Word is more than words – it communicates and imparts HIS LIFE!
I’m At Peace!
This morning I am at peace, knowing that God is raising up a new breed of evangelists and revivalists in South Africa who will bear His Name and who carry the baton of truth in one hand and the torch of the holy spirit in the other.
Men of sound doctrine and sold out hearts.
I am happy to see the future of the gospel in South Africa and I know God has secured it in the hearts of restless souls who will not rest as long as unrighteousness prevails and who will never compromise as long as they draw breath.
The World is Burning!
South Africa, and the world for that matter, is burning.
People have become puppets of politics and of the New World Order seeking to overthrow nations everywhere by creating turmoil, fuming hatred and applying financial pressure to add fuel to the fire ….
And you are happy to carry on presenting your little “happy conferences” on “spiritual growth”?
Happy to carry on bleeding people to fill your own, already lined pockets, and you call yourself an apostle? And a prophet?
…. And how about those who are playing along by filling the conference seats of these impostors to be entertained … while the world around you is burning?
No, no, no … rather give the unpolished dusty front lines where it is not about celebrating entertainers but about plucking souls out of hell, setting the captives free, breaking every spell, delivering people from bondage and seeing lives being restored – if anything that is what true apostles, prophets and evangelists are called to do – anointed ones anyway!
Leave the con-artists to their fancy conferences and 3 piece suits, preaching to the rhythms of their well trained organ players.
Leave the entertainment business to those running their pony shows.
Let you and I together get done what God needs done and allow Him to cause us to walk to the rhythm of His heart and to see if we can plug the wounds of a bleeding nation!
