Vacancy: Man Of God Needed

God is looking for a MAN. A man who fears God, who will exalts His will above personal desires. A man who will raise his children and family to reverence Him.

233722This man will be fit for His daughter in marriage to fulfil His purpose for Family seeing our congregations are filled with proverbial water everywhere but none fit for drinking.

This man must be fit for God’s business of establishing His Kingdom on earth. He will restore order as a responsibility everywhere he finds chaos and confusion(Responsibility), a man to rebuild broken down walls (Society/Values) and bridge the gap between man and God in today’s society (Discipleship).

Ezekiel 22:30Ezekiel 22:30

30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

– And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

The Lord’s pain is that the hedge is broken and the serpent bites. Who will raise up the brazen serpent as Moses did to help the people. Can God rely on you? Are you ready to take on the responsibility to rise up and bridge the gap between God and society.

My prayer is that God will give you the grace to be SoldOUT on that which concerns the Kingdom.

27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, 28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. 29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. 30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? 31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. 32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: 33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. 34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? 35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. 36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? 37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. 38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him. 39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing. 40 But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.

No wonder “Acting” the Doctor, Lawyer, Freedom fighter, etc. has replaced the actual pursuit of studying for the skill set necessary (the career) to fight today’s wars.

Crafted for WORK

Unemployment across the nations of the earth is so much so a concern today that it is now a major negotiating item for politicians and a critical factor for economist. The unemployment Rate in Nigeria for instance increased to 23.90 percent in 2011 and a record low of 5.30 Percent in 2006.

Many have died as a result of strikes by the unemployed and many will still die despite the fact there are opportunities everywhere. Opportunities come from problems around and we have more than enough to go round several times. Believers and those who realise the true calling of man as Solution Providers arise from sleep to significance.

Recently the Ebola virus hit the shores of West Africa. Many died before a small amount of a new drug – ZMapp – which had not been fully approved for use came to the rescue.

Researching into the origin of this top secret drug as it were, I found out that ZMapp is not really a cure or a vaccine but a cocktail of genetically engineered antibodies that boosts a patients’ ability to fight off Ebola.

ZMapp wasn’t fully tested for use but administered because it was relevant. ZMapp is scientifically referred to as not being a cure or vaccine but useful. Do you know you may not look or feel like anything next to who God created you to be but you are relevant to your generation?

Your generation is groaning and crying for you to Mature from being a Child and manifest the Wisdom/Anointing within you as a Son. You carry an anointing to solve problems no other person can.

A Certificate is not your problem, Maturity and Manifestation are. When a man is anointed to solve a problem, certificates don’t count anymore. Joseph never needed a certificate to inteprete Pharaoh’s dream. Nehemiah never did an MBA to fix Jerusalem’s problem. All you need to do is Sit down to be built into maturity by the Word and Discipleship… Then Be BOLD and Offer your solution to one man and you will be influencing a Nation before the year runs out.

Be Angry

The mention of the substance Uranium takes the minds of many to the substance used in creating Nuclear Bombs. The truth is Uranium was given by God to be used for good not evil. So when we see the use of Uranium from the perspective of its Uncontrolled chain reaction we must remember that its Controlled chain reaction adds value to mankind.

So also is Anger. Can you remember the last time you met a raving mad or angry person? Think about the time you got very angry over a situation or about something or someone? Did anything change for good?

“Whatever anger begins, anger must sustain” The focus is in the product. If negative anger begins a thing or process, it will take negative anger to sustain it and also will result in more negative.

Think about the kind of anger you are allowing or should be allowed with you. Is it the Creative Anger or Destructive one. Ephesians 4:26Ephesians 4:26
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:  

WP-Bible plugin
says, “Be angry without doing wrong; let not the sun go down on your wrath”. (BBE). This is to say, God approves Anger but not that which gets one mad but that which does no wrong.

Lee Lacocca an America business man once said, “In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive”.
Anger is therefore a “High-Energy Resource” to be used ONLY Positively. Negative Anger MUST never be left around your Relationships, Marriage, Work, etc.

Channel every form of Anger from others to you or coming from within you to Positive Anger that does no evil. Let it do good for you and others every time. You will connecting with Gods blessings stored up for the Beloved.

I pray that you will enjoy much more grace to channel Anger Positively in Jesus name.

BeyondLIMITS

Limits are points, beyond which something or someone does not, may not or cannot extend his or her reach and abilities.
Limits are also barriers that obstruct free flow of blessings and levels one may not be expected to cross or surpass.
Limits restrict one’s capacity from attaining full operational maximum and could be positive in terms of standards of what one shouldn’t do [something harmful].
Limits are very destructive when they take on the form of a hindrance to performance, manifestation or promotion. How? Limits have reduced people’s expectations on their potentials and performance. To the lazy, they encourage procrastination.
From limits we have adjectives like limitation, limited, limitative and limitary. All these fancy English words to my understanding means, “You are not allowed to go beyond this point”.
It could be for some happiness in marriage or health. To others it could education, finances, achievement et al.
Others are phrases like “Within Limits” – being moderate or accepting your comfort zone, “Off Limits” – out of bounds or restricted only for a few and “Without Limits” which is the one we should love because as Ephesians 2:14Ephesians 2:14
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

There are NoMORE Barriers, NoMORE Restrictions, NoMORE Obstructions….We can NOW take all the risk we want keeping in mind that winning is not for the gentle but the persistent
Another good news is the fact that LIMITS are by choice. We can choose to remain in the limitations we have found ourselves or we step up and activate the covenant of Ephesians 3:20Ephesians 3:20
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Choose therefore to make now is …dare to ask or think infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams.

NoMORE AVERAGE

NoMORE AVERAGE……being who God Designed You to Be.

Several hundreds of years ago, the nation of Israel had to decide who to worship as God. Before them was Jehovah [God Almighty who had at countless times saved, secured and provided for them in season and out of season] and baal [a worthless idol with no abilities except standing motionless and powerless].

average-credit-scoreThis decision was supposed to be easy but for the spirit of AVERAGE…. AVERAGE is dictionary defined as being, “Neither very good nor very bad” and it’s the reason why people falter between two opinions, opt for less as against more that has been allotted by inheritance or privilege to them.
… Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” 1 Kings 18:211 Kings 18:21
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. opinions: or, thoughts?

It is time to Take A Stand, faltering between two opinions makes you lukewarm and makes God unable to use or help you. [Rev 3:16Rev 3:16

Responsibility: Respond with Ability

Responsibility is dictionary defined as something you must do as part of your job or duty. In fact, it is something you ought to do because it is morally, socially and I must add divinely right.

The Message Bible version of Galatians 6:5Galatians 6:5
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

5 For every man shall bear his own burden.  

WP-Bible plugin
, says Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.

cultivateResponsibility comes in different forms to different people but remains the doorway to fulfilment in life. Without responsibility roles, functionality and purpose for titles or position wouldn’t be properly defined.

From our last definition we can see that responsibilities could be
A. Moral Entity:meaning, it is solution minded and fixing problems bestowed on you by nature or circumstances. It could be gender selective, positional or by an accident of birth as sometimes say. An example of responsibility coming on someone by circumstance is found in the book of Esther 4:14Esther 4:14
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? enlargement: Heb. respiration  

WP-Bible plugin
which the Message bible …quotes as saying.

If you persist in staying silent at a time like this, help and deliverance will arrive for the Jews from someplace else; but you and your family will be wiped out. Who knows? Maybe you were made queen for just such a time as this.”

Wherever you find yourself, moral responsibility demands that you take a positive stand to assigning yourself a duty to bring change and never wait to be told or even thanked.

Secondly, responsibility is a Social Entity: meaning, it is about adding value to our immediate communities and neighbourhood with the intent of not only deliberately meeting emotional needs but giving others a sense of belonging.

A classical case is recorded in Acts 4:34-35Acts 4:34-35
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.  

WP-Bible plugin
[NIV], There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.

Finally, responsibility is… A Divine Entity which bestows on man the “Genesis 1:26Genesis 1:26
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  

WP-Bible plugin
Mandate” of having dominion over all creation and the earth. … by keeping and tending the earth as ordained by God.

Responsibility therefore differentiates producers from consumers and leaders from slaves. It empowers all in cultivating and guarding creation in whatever sphere of influence we may find ourselves.

Responsibility transforms bad to good, corruption into integrity and through it poverty becomes an open door to wealth. Beggarly nations have become great economies by being responsibility to its citizens and vice versa. Citizens in turn imbibe this as a culture and reciprocate by building every sector of the economy and life.

Nehemiah and the remnant of Israel rebuilt a 140 years broken down city wall in record 52 days by taking responsibility. This feat was achieved by common men as families or those in common vocations taking the responsibility of rebuilding just the portions of the wall right in front of their homes.

Wise people who follow people who are responsible make progress in their chosen field of endeavour just as wise societies and developing nations who maintain close ties with responsible first world nations for strategic, sustainable success also do.
Responsibility comes from two words “Response” and “Ability”. In my view these words confer on us a positive attitude we must imbibe and a skill or grace we must develop.

The positive attitude here is “the dogged desire to operate positively in ones abilities, gifts and skills to deliver or add value as we respond to challenges in our life, communities and generation”.

This attitude also triggers sacrifice and makes one add value per time whatever the issues are or the challenges. The fact remains that responsibility comes with a price and only those ready to pay it enjoy its benefit.

And what is that price? It is the fact that responsibility is never really GIVEN to anyone, it is for the TAKING.
Genesis 1:1-2Genesis 1:1-2
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

The First Book of Moses, Called Genesis 1 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  

WP-Bible plugin
ERV
God created the sky and the earth. At first, 2 the earth was completely empty. There was nothing on the earth. Darkness covered the ocean, and God’s Spirit moved over the water
This may sound strange to you at face value but take some time to think about this. What do you see? God taking the responsibility of not allowing a chaotic situation prevail. He didn’t ignore it but went ahead and fixed the situation.
If we are creations of God, made in His image and likeness or form, wisdom demands that we be like Him. We were created solution providers and called to fix problems and not ignore them.
See this…Titus 1:5Titus 1:5
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV
