The Letdown by Christians

One of the harshest lessons you will learn as a Christian, and even as a human being is disappointment. But more so the disappointment that comes with naively putting your expectations in Christians and by extension Christian leaders.

The Life of a 21st Century Prophet: God's Servant's Are Human Beings First

It is difficult not to do so though, because it is a natural reaction.

You meet people who speak of God’s will with such eloquence that you are utterly swept up. You embrace them without much reservation. They even seem to walk the talk. Nonetheless, as you get to know people and do life with them you will begin to see the curtain of pretense slip away.

What can be even more devastating, is when you approach that individual to discuss the matter, in love, and they shun you like a plague and are not repentant or open. Maybe even malice you.

I have seen this happen over and over again. I have experienced deep hurt and disappointment on too many occasions to count. It will happen with your pastors, choir directors, church friends, parents, relatives, work mates, leaders and your friends. The recurrence can send you in any of two directions; to God for answers and how to cope or to a place of contempt, bitterness and un-forgiveness.

These days, I run straight to my Source for answers. Yes, I am still at the stage where I withdraw like a wounded puppy to the most secure section of the shed.

That is instinct.

But also, I begin a process of constant forgiveness and checking in with God. I assess the levels of hurt that I am feeling and I sometimes, get into the ‘Why God?’ mode. How long I stay in this shed depends on how hurt I am.

Understanding

Then, my Father begins to talk to me and provide answers. Oftentimes, He would have shown me indications of what was coming or the flaws in people’s character from before. However, as with anyone, we ignore it and set up ourselves to be disappointed by having expectations of that person.

The Life of a 21st Century Prophet: God's Servant's Are Human Beings First

This ought not to be.

God’s servants are human beings first.

They are made of flesh and flesh is naturally sinful. Therefore, if a person has not given over completely to the Holy Spirit, then at times, if not frequently, they will ‘act up’.

The same is true for all of us as individuals, for the bible says:

 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” – Romans 3:23-26 (KJV)

Forgiveness

The first step towards moving on, is forgiveness. This can be extremely difficult to do. However, as you come into a closer relationship with God, it gets easier.

Forgiveness begins with acknowledging your own shortcomings. The main one possibly being not able to forgive immediately.

Secondly, you forgive and give the person over to Jesus Christ. Let Him be their judge. For many of us, we might have to repeat this process a few dozen…hundred or thousand times for it to take. No matter how many times is needed, do it until you are free.

Then, you pray for God to give you a spirit of Love. Love conquers all. God is Love.

If you submit your will to the Holy Spirit, then He will guide you through this process. He will give you the depth of Love to operate in.

All that’s needed now is for you to act in love. Do this for as many times as is needed, until it becomes a natural response.

Growth

In time, if you follow these steps, forgiveness will be an immediate response. If you find yourself regressing, do not despair. Just repeat the process of forgiveness and love for as many times as Christ gives you the grace to execute.

For those who ask, “So what happens if the person continues to behave in a way that is hurtful?”

Then, If it is the will of God, he will either move you or the person. You can also ask Him to, if it is His will.

I say this because, like Christ, we sometimes have to grin and bear it, until things change.

Prayer

For many of us, persecution and trials lead us into a deeper relationship with God, through prayer.

The bible says:

“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” – 1 Peter 5:7(KJV)

Oftentimes, hurt causes anger and in anger we tend to complain and vent. At times, when we complain to others, it might ‘color’ their relationship with the other person. Or cause them to start talking about the individual, in question, negatively to other people.

Excerpt From What does the Bible say about complaining?

Clearly, as believers we are challenged not to grumble or complain (Philippians 2:14-15; 1 Peter 4:9); rather, we are to love one another deeply so that we may become “blameless and pure” in God’s eyes. If we grumble and complain, it shows how worldly we still are (James 4:1-3). A complaining spirit leads to fighting and quarrelling because complaints come from unfulfilled desires, which lead to envy and strife. Was that not at the root of the problem with the sons of Israel, when they chose to dispose of their brother Joseph, because of his dream (Genesis 37:3)?

Jesus is always there to hear our problems and guide us. He wont spread negative aspirations on anyone. God knows how to keep your sessions with Him private. He even gives room for us to complain to him. This is one way to get the hurt out.

In this life, relationships with anyone is not easy. There will be disappointment, hurt, anger and even resentment. I pray that you and I will follow these steps and allow God to continue to perfect you, towards heaven.

Be blessed.

Prophets Arising: America vs Africa

purified-by-fire-image-courtesy-of-ted-larson
Standard

God always has his servants hidden under his wings. This word was given to me Mar 10, 2016.

*****

The surge of the new prophets that will arise in this time will be different. That surge has started and Africa is ahead of the pack. Their ministers do not muddy the water. When they seek God, they touch the fire of heaven and as such they are purified to gold.

In America most are concerned with celebrity. Most are concerned with money, power, houses and status. This folly will be punished. Most will be revealed or returned to the potters purification process or destroyed.

Selah.

The Life of a 21st Century Prophet: Introspection 

Introspection
Standard

Perfection is hard to attain when you have that one thorn in your flesh. By nature we humans are considered weak and willful. We blow with whichever wind passes by. That’s life.

But it doesn’t have to be that wat. What we cannot do of our own, we can call for help from the master. For some, opening the mouth is the hardest part. For others, vocalising a sound is even harder. Maybe the heart should make the call.

Introspection.

Prophecy: We didnt fight hard enough

Standard

Most times, I try to stay away from what is going on the world; the serious things that make you run under the shadow of the Almighty. Why? Because, as in all things, God starts talking to me about them and it makes my heart sad.

The world is in a deplorable state. The last two generations are heavily responsible for the state of affairs right now. We failed miserably.

We didn’t fight hard enough.
We didn’t love hard enough.
We didnt exercise our faith in Him often enough.
We didnt allow God and His principles to stand, as such.

The devil has set his claws in and we shall see such moral decline, as has never before been seen in the time of man.The devil will seek to kill mankind from the womb at an every increasing rate; example…aka zikv excuse…Microcephaly.

Parents weep for your grandchildren…many shall never see the light of day. many shall not see the gates of Heaven.

I appeal to the sons and daughters of God. Awake. Pray. Fast. Pray. Weep. Pray.

Revealing The Final ‘Time’

Standard

The bible speaks about the times, which we are living in. When people forget about their moral obligations and crime is passe.

We are living in a time when nudity is prolific in films and curse words are included on TV, Radio and in the Press.

We are living in a time when a nation can test nuclear weapons…for intimidation purposes.

We are living in a time when Christians are the ones being stripped of ‘Freedom of Speech’.

We are living in a time when the devil has his hand in every pot and those pots are bubbling over unhindered.

We are living in the last ‘time’…1000 years.

Prophecy: The Threat to American Politics

Standard

The situation between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is toxic. This presidential race has run beyond the lines of morals and scruples. It is bad all around. Never have I experienced such a rapid destruction in the standing of any country’s political reputation.

As I glimpsed a few clips of the second presidential debate, between these opponents, God started talking to me.

God says…

The political atmosphere in America is beyond tense…it is nuclear. It is building up for the assassin to take his position on the stage. We need to pray for America because people are beyond angry. This will push some person to justify and make a presidential assassination attempt.

God help America.

The Life of a 21st Century Prophet: It starts with The Price of God’s Miracle Working Power, Book by A A Allen

The Price of God's Miracle Working Power by a a allen
Standard

As I read the words of A A Allen, The Price of God’s Miracle Working Power
Book, the seriousness of the calling that God has put on me…dawned BIG.

I was a few pages into chapter one, but I knew that God was directing me to a template of what to do, to grow in His ministry.

He was calling me to be, not like others. No shows this summer. Fasting was a requirement and there were lengthy prayers in my future.

Somehow, clarity creeps forward effortlessly in the night hours, doesn’t it?

My spirit was willing. My heart was light. My senses were nervous and filled with dread because my mind knew, that like A A Allen, this time I was going into it and not stopping until I heard from heaven.

But if my aim is to serve at Gods pleasure, then I must conform. If I aim to get rid of pride and be humble; if I aim to die to self…if I aim to be even a quarter as impactful in ministry as A A Allen was, it was time to kill all earthly desires.

God help me.
