You’re either one or you’re not.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Colossians 3:16
Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all long-suffering and teaching.2 Timothy 4:2
You’re either a prophet or you’re not. You’re either an apostle or not. Don’t try to fit yourself into a category gift to the church. Jesus gave you as a gift Eph4:11 to the body or not.
You can have the prophetic gift 1 Cor12:7-11 from Holy Spirit and not be a prophet, nor apostle. A famous pastor or church leader, or just Someone may call you one and it cannot change the fact that your not. Never!
You can be a leader of many members and not be an apostle. Don’t add a title to your name. You’re either one or you’re not. How do you know? If you have to ask somebody other than God, then your not.
Those that are, don’t care what others think, cause they know what Jesus and Holy Spirit shows them everyday.
There are different stages (calling(1 Samuel 16:1 – 13), training, (2 Samuel 2:1-4) and office (2 Samuel 5:1-5)) to the prophets and apostles. In Every stage you are either dying to self or in a position of humble service to the body. These callings are for washing others feet and not for fame and glory.
Most who have been in these positions have been in these processes for many years and not all are similar. Some are known right away other go through the Joseph process; either way we are not to judge. We just recognize the Lord in them, and stop hating but honor.
The greatest position of honor that Jesus promoted to be above all other is He said “I am the Son of God”. Be a son! Titles without function just makes you a powerless religious. And don’t call someone brother so and so in order to replace a title. Yes they are your brother, but it’s as religious to do so. Just call them by their name unless otherwise asked. Just like a mentor of mine says; “Jesus calls me by [my first name], so call me [first name].”
Humility is not adding to yourself and not taking away to yourself, but the balanced truth of who you are. Nothing more nothing less. Everything else is a lie and it’s religion. It’s dead and kills.
Nothing happens anywhere unless it’s happening in real life.
There is no such thing as a Facebook prophet, or YouTube, or whatever social media. Either people are being touched and changed forever or not. Theses mediums are only tools. A small reflection of ones life. Something we should be thankful to have as a privilege to be able to approach others minds and Hearts at the level of acquaintances. Tools that reaches beyond money and social boundaries–internationally.
Do not let the spirit of familiarity dishonor power and authority over the anointed people of God.
Positions in church buildings are alike. Nothing more nothing less. Get out from comfort zones of others anointing, if you think your special. Go out there and preach in the streets like Jesus did; people are dying for this very precious Gospel, for it to be reduced to mere politics. Everywhere the gospel should be preach with signs following.
These people are anointed because God made them so…God always honor the prophets and apostles and doesn’t do nothing on earth unless He shows it with His sons, friends and servants the Prophets and Apostles.
Be a son and not an orphan!
