The intent of apostolic faith
Some few months back, the lord granted me the pleasure of accessing certain truths regarding what is defined in the word of God as corporate faith; and I think some of the values shared in those words are truly enlightened principles that can accelerate the life’s journey of anyone traveling on the road to Zion in this new day. I certainly do recommend that you take the time out to read them on my blogpost.
Lately, the lord has been pulling my attention again to reexamine another frequency of his truth in the scriptures that expatiate on the character nature of faith. I would assume the Father is impressing this truth to me in particular due to the nature of the days we find ourselves and the kind of posture of heart require if we must advance to the next mountain of his pleasure.
We have entered an era where two opposite and opposing principles are living side by side, and we are required to precisely and effectively define and understand the principle and value model we have subconsciously subscribe to in other to accurately determine the source of our heart purpose and intent.
This deliberate spiritual scrutiny is highly crucial in particular for those who intend to successfully transit in what is today known as the third day ministry lifestyle. Intention, purpose and objective can be subtly corrupt if the source that feed our spirit or soul start reflecting an iota of an ambitious undertone. I cannot overemphasize this. In my almost three decades of ministry, I have discovered that it is so easy to slip from the center-point of divine intent, and this is because of one single deadly poison known as insecurity. One of the greatest qualities of a true follower of the lamb is to be totally secure in him. Insecurity is the breeding ground for all forms of fear and self-centered ambitions.
You will notice in genesis that the lord had already finished his work before he created Adam to dress it. The word dress means to maintain. Maintenance suggest that something is already in existence that only needs to be kept in a particular state or condition. There are substance both in the spiritual and natural sphere the lord has designed man to maintain. This idea mean to give it life and direction through our presence and visibility. The first man, Adam shifted from the center point, and therefore failed from his core Assignment which was to maintain the garden. The garden was his wife and every other thing that secure her purpose and assignment in God.
While he had the power and authority to name and nature creatures, he however failed to stop the enemy from having a deadly conversation with his (assignment) wife. Therefore, if we understand that our assignment is more of a spiritual stand in establishing that which the Lord has already brought forth, it eradicate the burden of trying to do something for God.
Our position is not to try to do ‘things’ but to become what we have been originally designed and ordained to reflect through the image and likeness of the Father reflecting in our lifestyle conduct. Those who go around in trying to create (ministry) thing for themselves because they have become so insecure, then it only proves that something has to be urgently fixed within the dysfunctional reality of their soul.
While our perceived assignment may reflect a lot of good creative intentions to the natural sight, when they are however scrutinized under a strong prophetic office, we see the shadow of fear, insecurity and illegitimate leadership manipulation as the driver of what we claim to be given by the Lord.
One can have a good intention with a subliminal corrupt agenda. This directly answers the question why very good people in the house of God ends up been corrupt. Corruption of life and ministry is a direct reflection of a slit shift of the heart from the center point. The centerpint of any person or assignment is remaining in the knowledge of becoming like Christ in his true essence, and not necessarily what you have built or achieve in his name. Kingdom centered intent are byproduct of a life that has totally embrace not just the pathway of the cross, but the very essence of the ascended lifestyle.
If that which is pursuit in the name of God or ministry has not first become a sacrificial burnt offering, the ‘things’ we define to be ministry or great achievements in life will become the very instrument that corrupts the heart. The definition of idolatry today is not farfetched from the very things we spiritually pursue even in our prayers before God. if the heart is merely seeking to serve Intent without us first capturing the ideology that we are the first and the only work he desire to perfect in the earth, we risk losing the heartbeat of the Fathers prophetic intent, which is a life that has (ascended) risen to him as a living smoke from the burnt offering of the altar of our lives. This is the work of the third day ministry.
There is a deception or should I say, a delusion that assumes that the Father is only pleased with what we have achieved or build in his name for the world to behold, most especially when they look grand and lofty. While we most seek to pursuit the pleasure of the father through the expression of what we have been given the grace to construct as portals of his divine expression in the earth, we should never forget that what the Lord is truly searching for is a soul that has willingly offer itself to be beheaded on the altar of the Father’s pleasure.
These kinds of men are women are the ones Christ can truly and confidently place his life headship upon. The knowledge of what the father seeks for amidst the present darkness will continue to define and separate the two characters of lives found today within the body. As the Spirit of the lord continues to impress these demands on us, we all have the duty to be determined in offering him the pleasure of trust, obedience and sacrifice daily.
As we see the increase of the activity of darkness manifest in various forms and shape across the globe, we should not be alarm of their threats because there is right now a fresh release of the spirit of supplication and intercession to seek the Lord more than ever before.
The famine of truth and lack of the presence of the Lord the church had faced in the past decade is coming to a closure, and we are been given the opportunity again to partake of the season of refreshing coming from the presence of the Father. This release of the grace to pray and seek the face of the Lord will allow the heart to be thoroughly threshed in readiness of to receive an update revelational understanding of the spirit of an overcomer admits the present darkness.
The demand to update and upgrade the quality of our faith to the standard that will make for our advancement is a major highlight in the mind of the Lord. As a sojourner, seeking passage through time into the eternal realm, we need not only to be reminded frequently of the process and value standard required of us in our mission on earth, but to also learn to keep our eyes on the end of our journey so that we are able to persevere in times of tribulations and adversities. At each season of our migration into that ascended preferred life in Christ, we are introduced to different realities of faith.
Since faith is the core substance that allows us to please God, it becomes highly important for us to understand what pleases him at each injunction of our faith. What pleased him yesterday may be his displeasure today. Journeying into the things of the spirit is an unending reality that requires a childlike attitude daily from us in approaching the spiritual things.
Therefore, recently again, the good lord caused me to peach my tent by Hebrews chapter 11:27, and as a sat, in search of the revelation and mysteries lucked within the scripture, I suddenly became aware of certain keys laying around for anyone who has responded to the summoning of the Spirit of the Father.
It seem the more we try to read and understand the scripture through the template of what men today tag as the kingdom truth, the more frustrated we have become for the reason that our thought pattern and its process of comprehension is still highly influenced by the knowledge of the three of good and evil. Many among highly notable preachers and teachers of the word of God today have decided to settle for what I’ll like to refer to as an echo of other preacher word to survive and sustain their ministry.
There is absolutely nothing wrong in listening or even borrowing others concept of knowledge of the word as long as we recognize and acknowledge where they came from. My point is, those who have become lazy and too busy to labor in the place of sacrificing their time and space to pray and meditate on the values of seeking the kingdom first, and above all else should not think the lord will cheaply give them access into the kingdom keys of the third day portal.
Both the cultural environment and operational standard of the third day’s ministry is totally different from how we have viewed, received and function in our earlier ministry camps. While it’s easy to learn and speak the language of the third day ministry, you will however not be able to produce its fruit.
The process it takes to search, seek and discover the knowledge key to access the current mind of the Lord is found in the place of complete blindness to your former operational perception, and the readiness to shut down for a season until your sight is restored through the ministry of another ordained to lead you into the new day.
The template of how you think and see the word of God in regards to its interpretation and benefit has to shift from self-enrichment to Christ been magnified and glorified in your life first, and then through your life to the rest of the world. There are those who have been sent ahead of you to lead and guide you into what you are yet to see. Wearing the cloak of humility is a powerful transitional attitude character that will accelerate you into the next realm of heaven’s designed plan for your life.
The lord is reinventing the framework of our ideology and theology in other for his restored truth to perfectly seat without our soul fighting for space. What the Lord is saying and birthing in this new era demand a complete reorientation of how we see and understand the word who is the personification of Christ. Whatever you think you have attained or achieve for God should be laid as a burnt offering altar for the sacrifice of a new day that will be emerging from the smoke of the pleasure offering of your life raising to the throne the Father.
The Lord will not cheaply offer you access into what someone else has defined to you as Gods thing. You need to come up higher into the place of sight and understanding to comprehend the new spiritual path created for those who are dead to their own glory.
The mind of the Father is wider and bigger than the entire universe put together a million times. Yet, it could be the closest experience we could ever have we there is a cultivation of the right attitude to listen and discern the lord’s voice.
The word of God is only living and alive only to those who have become completely blind and totally dead to the ways and pattern of this world. Within this pages of the word are journeys you must embark if you desire to see things that are made for your reformation and transformation.
I discovered that the scripture itself is only a portal that introduces us THE ONE CALL THE LIVING WORD. Until a man comes to the end of himself he cannot be introduced to his designed destiny deep within the heart of the father. Therefore, the unlocking of certain spiritual doors as you open the pages of the word of God is highly crucial to the feeding of your Spiritman, and the deliverance of your soul from the image and culture of Sin. Back to Moses.

Dear fellow blogger!
Invite you to read my blog post about the Kingdom of God:
“The Bible says that we should put it first in our lives (Matt. 6:33) and that we should be preaching it to others (Luke 9:2). We pray for God’s kingdom to come on a regular basis, but if someone were to ask us: “Please, explain to me exactly what the Kingdom of God is”, would we know what to say?”
