When Christians, but sadly, its spiritual leaders, don't understand or comprehend that God chooses certain individuals not because they are biblically and spiritually qualified, but because they are available candidates suitable to carry out a specific assignment, we run the risk of standing against heaven's counsel. Allow me to use the Example again, Peter, the very chosen of the Lord, was almost refusing the prophetic, redemptive purpose of God for the gentiles based on his religious, Jewish beliefs.
Once you accept your enrollment of becoming a Christ-focused disciple, you will be facing some of the gruesome drillings that will expose your own very weakness and strength, fears and doubt, disbelieves and disappointments, love, and hate; I call this the path of the making of a true disciple of Christ in place of what religion and organized Christianity has offered.
The passing away of God's prophetic vanguards in a generation means several things, including the closure of a prophetic season and the opening of another. The passing of the type of ministry leadership grace and voice should be highly noted. Elijah and Elisha are two different personalities with unique grace, but we see Elisha receiving a double portion of the anointing upon the life of Elisha. The anointing is God's prophetic voice that allows certain things to be done on behalf of the kingdom of God, especially in the objective of redemption. There are certain individuals the Lord had developed and matured in the spiritual ranking to the degree that they have been entrusted with a specific position of influence as Eldership and governmental authority at the gates of nations and continents.
The easiest way for the enemy to infiltrate the prophetic activity of the Father in the earth is through wrong connections and alliance. As powerful as relationship means to the prophetic advancement of the purposes of God, particularly, a marriage relationship, so is relationship one of Satan's key strategies in seeking to cripple, pollute, and destroy the agenda of God.
Millions of Christians today are now being assimilated into the very way of life we've been empowered and commissioned [sent] to change and dislodge in society; the people we are called to redeem, deliver, disciple, and transform for the Lord have almost managed to capture our weak spiritual position and ideology of ‘Christianity’. They are pursuing the agenda to change the times and the laws of God before our very eyes while we hide in caves and holes as we see during the reign of Ahab and Jezebel. The spirit that captured the kings of the earth have managed to bewitch and seduce society, they’ve been charmed and bewitched; the spell of Jezebel is today written all over our desires, actions, conducts, our pattern of thinking, desires, spiritual, and emotional preferences, unfortunately.
Perception must be where change begins from and not in handing food packs or clothes to our vulnerable black folks or colored children in need. This is good, but not good enough if we desire to escalate the agenda of grassroots integration and transformation. If I could be judged and looked down upon based on the colour of my skin and not based on my character or intelligence, then, something is still fundamentally flawed with the architectural framework of how many in our society think and see themselves and others. My call is for everyone to stand up against the evil that is threatening the future of the community and loved one.
Beauty is a mystery that can only be correctly defined and understood the way God sees his creation in the beginning...after he created man, and he said, it was very good. Goodness and beauty are synonymous to the awakening of light of God within a heart that is once darkened by corruption. Beauty is the act of perfection in creation; it is not the expression of adornment.
We've been placed in an environment that sustains everything we are, and should represent as humans made in the likeness of God. A life lived in the consciousness of the abiding presence of God is one that receives provision for life and godliness according to brother Peter.
The soul of man can virtually mimic, or even perform certain acts of spiritual activity, including what we may term as miracles, especially when it's exposed and accustomed to the knowledge and operational system of the spirit, and there's no doubt that the soul is very familiar with the peripheral environmental activity of the spirit. In the ascended operatives dimensions of the spiritual life, no part of the unregenerate soul faculty is allowed to function without their submission to the divine order of the spirit.
By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola When a relationship that ought to effectively drive our corporate, assigned prophetic activity is merely built on the peripherals of some humanistic, civil, politically correct ideology, we can be rest assured that we are not ready to confluence as Christ regents in matters of kingdom civilization and engagement for the … Continue reading YOUR GIFT IS NOT ENOUGH FOR EFFECTIVE MINISTRY
