The following is a transcript of the message from ‘The Mighty Men and Pastor’s Breakfast Meeting’ on Sunday, January 31, 2016, held in Nairobi City, Kenya.
God bless You. Perhaps not many know why we are here today. You know it has been that you get invited by the men of God or you hear it announced and so you get to this place. This way it may be misconstrued that you have come because of so and so. But really only few in these meetings you see come because of God’s invitation. When it is God’s invitation then that is revival.
People have been rushing to wrong places. You can easily go where false fires manifest and this strange fires and false tongues have painted a twisted picture of what the presence of God is but true hearts that are for this End-time revival are few.
I have heard people coming to me later in meetings, when the meeting is over and God has done his bit with, in, and through such remnants, and then these other ones come to apologize for not having attended.
So here I think the Church has been accustomed to think they do a man of God some favors to be in their meetings. Because why apologize for not attending a church service?
To who do you apologize? Don’t you know that it is appointment for your own God? And so I don’t respond to apologies.
You men of God sitting here, you have played desperation. The flock today think they are part of your glory, they are part of your fame and part of your boasting. And so they come to feed your ego, and when they don’t come to the meeting, they will apologize to rectify because it is you they offend.
They know they were not part of “your seats” to be filled. It has become a business deal.
Let us turn to Haggai 2:6-9.
“This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the LORD Almighty. ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares theLORD Almighty. ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the LORD Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the LORD Almighty.”
The shaking He is talking about here is dual faceted. We had our good shaking at Pentecost from which this wind of revival has been blowing to nations. But also this shaking in Haggai 2 is definitely talking about the Tribulation. Then he is saying that day when the desire of the nations shall be fulfilled. The desire of Nations?
The desire of the Nations, is what the people of the earth are thirsty about. You are included in this because of the thirst I see in the church. It is thirst but it is thirst that is being fed with greed and lust.
This is why false prophets and false Christians have formed a big team to help out their lust. You just don’t know from which well of water you must drink from. You have your own sources, see what He says in Jeremiah 2:10, My people have committed two sins:
- They have forsaken me, the spring of living water,
- and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.
In a loud voice they were saying: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise,” Revelations 5:12.
The church wars have become nations war and conflict. You hear it and I hear it. Even in this country. They are strife’s of power, about might of Strength, wisdom to be, wealth, Honor, Glory and Praise. Yet these things its only Christ that has legitimacy of possession.
These are the desires of the nation. When Christ becomes both the means and the end everyone receives a kingdom. True revival will lift up the son and ascribe him greatness he is due. We have been talking about Holiness for sometimes now. When you succumb to sexual pleasure you are drinking from wells of poison. Every sin is serviced back from a corresponding well .
In every revival I have studied, the son of God was the central focus. He was the sole one lifted and so, because the Son is holy, they related with Him as one who is holy – so they came knowing the instructions, how they relate to the Holy ground and not short in parameters in carrying the Ark and they indeed carried it properly in obedience.
We need men and women who know how to carry the Ark.
When we came here this little girl (pointing at the little one). This child was lifting her hands as the congregation worship the Lord and then she noticed mum lifting both hands then she also lifted the two hands worshipping the Lord! I am already in tears for such brokenness of the spirit. She will be a servant of God (prophecy).
You know, Christ preached the Kingdom wherever he went. He had no other to talk about, only The Kingdom. Yes, He preached it but you see, when He saw the little children, He did not preach to them on the decision of the Kingdom , but this is what he said. He said for the children, they already have it. The Kingdom is already theirs.
You have been seeking and seeking and seeking, but you may not have it soon because you are yet to become like the little children. For many of you here, when you were babes, you were seekers but today you are overgrown and you don’t seek anymore. You are in formulas and prescriptions that have robbed you of God. You have arrived. I don’t see servants of God slain in the spirit anymore.
When he doesn’t touch you, then he is not with you. When he is with you, those with you will know HE is with you.
I can put it even better, than when Moses took the Leadership of God’s people from the house of bondage, to the wilderness. There were specific visitations who were only synonymous with the Ministry of Moses. We see the Cloud. We see the angelic presence in his ministry. We see pillar of fire and we see bitter waters of Marah turning sweet, only because he was a man carrying the presence of a Mighty God.
In Moses’s Ministry, problems were solved and people identified with him.
Now, even when he died, and Joshua is the new Leader chosen, but look at this dilemma. He is chosen by the highest authority, yet the congregation have some reservation. They want a leader like the predecessor.
We know this to be true because here is what they say, Joshua 1:17. As completely as we obeyed Moses, we will obey you. Only, may the LORD, your God, be with you as God was with Moses.
People want to follow other people who have God!
