God’s Messenger Should Not Be Following The Norm In The World
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY NORMS?
Norms might be something that is usual, typical, or standard to men; in other
ARE YOU IN CHRIST KINGDOM ASSIGNMENT? DON’T LOSE YOUR FOCUS!
The book of 1 Kings Chapter 13 is a perfect story in the Bible for anyone that God has called into ministry to go and meditate on. That scenario will surely be a useful guide on how to be following God’s instructions to detail without any religious, cultural, or other sentiments.
“Now an old prophet was living in Bethel, and his sons came and told him all the deeds which the man of God had done that day in Bethel; the words which he had spoken to the king, these also they related to their father. Their father said to them, “Which way did he go?” Now his sons had seen the way which the man of God who came from Judah had gone. Then he said to his sons, “Saddle the donkey for me.” So they saddled the donkey for him and he rode away on it. So he went after the man of God and found him sitting under an oak; and he said to him, “Are you the man of God who came from Judah?” And he said, “I am.” Then he said to him, “Come home with me and eat bread.” He said, “I cannot return with you, nor go with you, nor will I eat bread or drink water with you in this place. For a command came to me by the word of the Lord, ‘You shall eat no bread, nor drink water there; do not return by going the way which you came.’” He said to him, “I also am a prophet like you, and an angel spoke to me by the word of the Lord, saying, ‘Bring him back with you to your house, that he may eat bread and drink water.’” But he lied to him. So he went back with him, and ate bread in his house and drank water.
If You’re Opportune To Be Reading This Presently, What Assignment Has God Given To You?
Make Sure You Don’t Seat Down Until You Give God Back A Report Or Reports Of What He Sent You.
When the Lord found out that all the Messengers in Bethel were dangerously silent concerning many issues and activities that were going on in their various cities, King Jeroboam was treading on a dangerous and slippery path; that was when God sent another messenger from Judah to Bethel
For what purpose, to go and carry out specific assignments, with specific instruction, however, the prophet sent from Judah got distracted by the title and experience of an old prophet in Bethel; Guess what? He paid the price of insensitivity with death. That will not be your portion or mine portion in the name of Jesus. Many people will say, ”it was the old prophet that confused and killed the prophet from Judah.” I will say Not at all; the Prophet from Judah was the one that killed himself.
To God, Partial Obedience Is Equivalent To Disobedience; It Is Dangerous And Costly.
Believers in Christ, if God sent you on errands, please let this truth zinc in your memory; God has chosen to send you on that errand not because He didn’t see an “old prophet, dangerously wealthy papa, special anointed daddy or another influential men and women of God where He sent you to; However, God deliberately bypasses the “special anointed and influential” for reasons best known to Him, therefore, it is a must that you that God sent to beware of any supposed man and woman of God advice.
IF YOU’RE ON GOD SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT, ALWAYS PAY ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING
- Never allow any situation or a man or woman of God to change instructions that God has given to you concerning your assignment.
- Whenever you are in doubt, always adhere and stick to the last instruction you received from God, that sent you until He speaks to you again clearly.
- Be determined not to relax or take a break when carrying out specific assignments for God, not until you give Him back your mission field progress report.
- Importantly, anyone that God sent on errands must beware of the “spiritual father or mother” cliche when they are on God’s specific assignments, although it may not be a bad idea for you to choose a “spiritual father or mother” for yourself if you prefer to do so for necessary “covering” But, it can be a perilous mistake you will ever make in your life if, you allow any “spiritual father or mother” counsel you out or against God’s will for your lives, based on their own previous experiences or years in their ministry.
WEARINESS, TIREDNESS, OR A DADDY AND BISHOP’S ADVICE WHILE ON GOD SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT IS NOT A GENUINE EXCUSE TO CHANGE OR NEGLECT GOD’S INSTRUCTION WITHOUT A SECOND HEARING FROM HIM.
BELIEVERS IN CHRIST ON ASSIGNMENT MUST ALWAYS STAY AWAY FROM UNNECESSARY ADVICE, ERRONEOUS TEACHINGS, AND DELICACIES OF VARIOUS REDEMPTION CAMPS OR CANAANLAND UNTIL THEY FULFIL THEIR KINGDOM ASSIGNMENT AND REACH THEIR DESTINATION SAFELY.
“Now it came about, as they were sitting down at the table, that the word of the Lord came to the prophet who had brought him back; and he cried to the man of God who came from Judah, saying, “Thus says the Lord, ‘Because you have disobeyed the command of the Lord, and have not observed the commandment which the Lord your God commanded you, but have returned and eaten bread and drunk water in the place of which He said to you, “Eat no bread and drink no water”; your body shall not come to the grave of your fathers.
THE PROPHET FROM JUDAH OBEYED A SPECIAL ANOINTED PROPHET, ISN’T HE? BUT THE SAME SO-CALLED SPECIAL ANOINTED PROPHET THAT LIED TO HIM WAS THE SAME ONE THAT PASSED ACROSS HIS DEATH SENTENCE TO HIM BY GOD’S COMMAND.
BELIEVERS IN CHRIST, BEWARE OF EVERY LYING OLD PROPHET, DADDY G.O, BISHOP, AND THEIR RELIGIOUS FALLACIES.
BELIEVERS IN CHRIST, DO NOT ALLOW THE NORMS IN THE SOCIETY CAUSE YOU TO DISOBEY GOD’S SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS TO YOU ON YOUR ASSIGNMENT.
When God called me to go and stand in the gap for the United States of America, He asked me to disengage from everything that I was involved in; I mean everything. Was it convenient? Not at all! However, I have learned my lesson in a very hard way about how not to be arguing with God whenever He’s speaking to me directly.
IN THE SAME WAY, GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN ANY NATION, SO ALSO ARE THE ONES GOD SENT BUT HEADED IN THE WRONG RELIGIOUS DIRECTION
During the time that God called me to stand in the gap for the United States of America, at that same time, the Lord called another person in Nigeria; With struggles, that person eventually resigned; However, the person refused to follow God’s instructions to details as commanded.
SOMEONE MAY ASK, “HOW DID YOU KNOW?”
The Lord sent me to go and inform
I asked that person, do you believe that God really called you? The answer was yes! Then I said to the person do you know that you are more qualified than me educational-wise, yet God found me worthy to be called, and He is using me to be standing in the gap for Him, including in the United States of America and many other nations, and up till this moment, He has never failed me neither has he allowed anyone to intimidate me on my assignment. I asked that person again why you delayed going forward with God’s instruction, and the response was, “it was my spouse” and “our pastor,” which caused me to digress.
MANY CHRISTIANS THOUGHT THAT IT IS ONLY PEOPLE THAT ARE WORSHIPING EFFIGY THAT IS IDOL WORSHIPERS. NO!
IF YOU HAVE TAKEN ANYTHING, INCLUDING YOUR PASTOR, BISHOP, CHURCH AFFILIATION, OPEN HEAVEN DEVOTIONAL BOOK, OR MINISTRY LOCATION OVER GOD’S INSTRUCTION, YOU’RE AN IDOL WORSHIPER.
I faced a similar situation in the past when I had an opportunity to meet with Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye in the year 2006 in Dallas, Texas; from that experience, I can tell you boldly that an atmosphere of worshipping a man or woman is not a pleasant experience for any believer in Christ. Pastor Adeboye, or any remarkable anointed man or woman of God, is no different from other religious leaders I left in Islam; I might even say that Pastor Adeboye and their cohorts are worse.
Before I was born again, I was privileged to meet many Islamic leaders that eventually turned to god; after my conversion to Jesus Christ’s way, I vowed that I would never go through that route again, never in my lifetime. And I prayed earnestly within me that God should help me to focus on HIM more, rather than focusing on any remarkable anointed man or woman of God, and the LORD heard my prayer and gave me the courage to be rejecting what has kept many people in religious bondage till present day, and that is the reason why I can share my story now in other to save others from falling into religious fallacies or ignorance. Let me begin to round up with my personal experience; I asked that person; what if God replaces you with someone else? That person was silent and started crying; however, too afraid to let go of the familiar, which is equivalent to idols. Behold, that person did not even use a week in the bible college before exiting this world.
I pray for someone right now that you will not die without fulfilling your purpose or kingdom assignment simply because you want to belong and follow society’s norms in the name of Jesus.
I myself would have loved to be coasting along with religiosity for money, and I would have loved to be part of millionaires club member’s connections, but I don’t want to be born again from Islam into Christianity and make a bad decision to end up in hellfire through various Redeemed Christian church of God or another Winners Chapel business centers.
I remember vividly in 2006 when I was in the office with Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye in Dallas, Texas, USA, when the Lord asked me to disengage from them completely. Initially, I couldn’t understand why, but when God opened my eyes and continued to open my eyes to see, I obliged, and now I understand better.
In 2014, before the Nigerian presidential election, the Lord sent me to go and inform many men and women of God in Nigeria that if they elect a general overseer as a president from APC, one of their political parties, nothing would work. Why? Because of grievous deception that involved men and women of God.
If you’re not doing what God has called you to do to detail, there is no amount of respect you can give to any old prophet, general overseer, bishop, or any government in power that will save you from the wrath of God. In conclusion, the Gospel recorded, “Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul, but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28.
BELIEVERS IN CHRIST, REPENTANCE IS A MUST IF YOU MUST LAND SAFELY.
