The Call 1
So many children of God carry offences in their hearts because they feel they ought to occupy a position or be ordained to a particular office and they are not. Consequently, many have left the place of cover, training and primary assignments to places that will accommodate the fleshly intentions of their hearts. They forget Hebrews 5:4 that tells us “No one takes this honor on himself; instead, a person is called by God, just as Aaron was.” It is not for the individual to demand this honor because he/she feels they deserve it. The House of God is not a political association or the market place where people are rewarded for their loyalty or services! One cannot help but wonder: when they have such rewards here for their ‘works’, what other reward do they expect when they stand before the King of kings? You don’t need any man to validate you or the call of God upon your life. Each person on earth has a purpose and a responsibility entrusted to them on earth; none of us sneaked into the earth. Thus, everyone will give an account of how they carried out the tasks given to them. The Lord made this clear when He declared to Jeremiah “I chose you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart before you were born. I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5. When you were chosen, consecrated and appointed your parents were not even aware. It was not dependent on your parents’ wishes or the wishes of any human; the prerogative was solely the Lord’s. The physical ordination you then go through is actually meant to call forth what God Himself had called you to be and do before you were born: not based on the feelings of anyone. Thus, your functionality is not dependent on the anointing oil poured on your head. The physical ordination is actually done to announce to the world what He had called you to be. Jesus Christ went through the baptism to fulfill all righteousness and the Voice of God we heard was for our own benefit! He already had His marching orders in hand! There are so many that are Pastors, Prophets, Evangelists, Teachers in our midst that have not been formally ordained nor come near a formal pulpit in front of a congregation. Some of them have found the purpose of their lives and have started operating in it quietly with tremendous results without the fanfare of ordination ‘celebrations’. Indeed, Heaven is going to be filled with surprises! So many calls have been corrupted and exchanged at the point of these ‘celebrations’. Friend that which you have heard God say do... do! When Moses, John the Baptist, Paul were called did you read that they went to validate the call from ‘the elders’? Mind you, there were elders then but they carried out the instructions of God to the letter. The reason you are not functioning properly is because you got your validation from ‘the elders’ and they gave you diplomatic instructions and counsels that negates the instructions of God. Please, don’t misunderstand this, I am not advocating that you should disrespect the elders placed before you by the Lord, but you must go according to the pattern and instructions given to you by the Lord just as Moses, Samuel, David, John the Baptist, Paul, Timothy did and recorded great results in their ministries. Seek out God’s instruction for you at this time and carry them out according to the pattern you have been shown. The boldness to arise in the might and strength of God to carry out the instructions of God is released to you in Jesus Christ name.
