Just because you can use a keyboard and have access to the internet does not make what you have to say good counsel and advice. Knowing some Scripture on top of that doesn’t mean what you say came from God. No. I said No. Every convict serving a life sentence can do that . . from most prisons. Throughout the nation. The Bible says we will give account for every idle word we have spoken, and that the power of life and death is in our words. You can tell what you are looking at by what is coming out of your mouth.
You must qualify to speak into the lives of others. Especially if what you’re speaking are the things of God. You cannot Call yourself to Ministry – only God can. And the call is not intellectual, it is Spiritual. In both the Biblical and spiritual sense being ordained is done only by God. No man can ordain you. Ordination is not something on paper, it is demonstrated in Power. Men with papers fill the churches, but they have no power. God did not ordain them. They called themselves and they ordained themselves. There is a big difference between God anointed and Self appointed.
The rise of the Internet hasn’t slowed down the millions who have called themselves, it has sped them up and given them a platform. They confuse having something to say with having a Call. Having something to say does not give anyone authority. Only God gives authority, which is backed up by the Anointing. If you do not have the anointing you are not called to Ministry. Everyone has a call, but relatively few are called to Ministry. Many are called few are chosen. The chosen are those who will follow the words.
How is it that Jesus was a person who had the anointing all over Him and came to get the anointing to us men, yet most believers don’t know what the anointing is. Anointing is the power of God in very small doses to change you just a little. Just like one breath and just like one bite of food and one thought or one moment in a day. They all come from Him. There is no excuse for not getting it because everything else provided by God in your life is just like that. You either wanted to know or you didn’t want to know. I want to know.
Well breath and food and time all came from God, they did not come from men. God set all of that up, men had nothing to do with it. How they get to and affect us and what they do in us. It’s the same with the anointing. The way of the world is to be or seek the spectacular, which is the opposite of the way of God in the earth. God is subtle. If He were anything other than subtle in dealing with perverted creatures in a fallen world He would scare us to death or we would be destroyed in any larger movements made by Him.
That is why time is given for fallen men, there is no time in Heaven. And patience is given for fallen men to travel through time the way a ship travels across the ocean. Those who refuse to develop patience are not traveling, they are standing still. God does not have anything for people who stand still any more than He has something for any other sinner. Not doing what God tells you in any capacity is sin. He only helps those who do what He says, and the help He gives is for you to do more of what He says. Until finally, we are like Him. Which is how we were to begin with, before everything got perverted.
That is where God is taking us, back to how it was in the beginning. Genesis means the beginning. Anyone who does not want to go back to the way it was in the beginning will go to a spiritual prison in the center of the earth full of fire and darkness, because they are a sinner. Sinners are spiritual criminals, and every man born into this fallen world which is under a curse, is a spiritual criminal. He is a sinner. Man being a sinner because he was born into sin then continues in sin, is not a topic for discussion, it is a condition. If you even attempt to turn it into a discussion you deny the condition, which is itself another sin.
How did the Devil take over the planet for thousands of years. With his words. What was the main mechanism used to impart his nature and displace God’s nature in Adam and Eve. Lucifer got them to exalt his words above the Word of God. It has been the same since the Garden of Eden. The enemy wants you to take your faith out of the Word and put it into something you can see or something you can hear. You can choose between doing what God says or what you want, but you cannot do both. Ministers whom God has anointed and appointed are uniquely qualified to prepare you for eternity. They do this by teaching you to obey God.
The ones who are called by God have the power. Power to change themselves, and power to change others. That’s what the Anointing is . . . Power. Just a small amount. But it is not to do whatever you want, it is only to do what He tells you. One of the things He tells all of His ministers to do is to say what He says. They say it to you. It is this hearing and speaking and keeping God’s word that causes you to Grow Up in Christ. Keeping it by doing it. So that you too can walk in a level of this power.
You won’t see this power in their muscles, under a microscope, or in the ability to control lightning. You will hear it in their Words. Your words contain more power more authority in your own life than the words of anyone. Including God’s. He made it that way. God created everything with His words. Jesus is called the Word of God. Line your words up with His words by getting under the words of those who work for Him. What God created with His Words is affected by His Words. And only He decides . . . who speaks His Words for Him.
