FEAR NOT YOU WORM JACOB PT2

How To Take Responsibility For Ones Desired Change

If you haven't read the first part of this article, you might need to start from there for a clearer view of what we are discussing - Fear Not You Worm Jacob Pt.1: God Will Make You Stronger, Smarter & Wiser

 

Last statement from Part 1:

 "Those who have been making themselves to be important and something, verse 12 of that Scripture says "You shall seek them and not find them — Those who contended with you. Those who war against youShall be as nothing, As a nonexistent thing."  You know by that verse, God gave us a picture of the end before we will even get there. He said those who are opressing us right now, a time is coming; when you and I take up responsibility to become and to function as a threshing sledge with sharp teeth, those who are oppressing us and seeking our non-existent, the Lord is saying we would look for them, and not see them anymore.   "

 

It is not by prayer alone, No! The Lord is saying His plans is to make you an entity that can take them on. The Lord is saying He is too big to be handling these oppressors, but He would make you an entity that can handle them. That is what God does. Even when you read the book of Revelation from the very beginning to the end, you will never see God coming to do something by Himself or trying to catch the devil, No! what God does is simply to raise hosts and entities who will do His biddings, who will obey His commands and execute His judgments.

            You have been waiting for God to intervene all along, but the waiting must make you and I to go to the place where God can build us up into new threshing sledges that have sharp teeths. It is not enough to be a threshing sledge, it is not enough to carry titles on our heads, we must have sharp teeths. What is it that is making us ineffective threshing instrument in the presence of God? What is making our mouths to be dull, and finding it very difficult to make a difference, why? We are General Overseers, we are Apostles, Senior Pastors, Teachers and Ambassadors of the Kingdom, carrying names and titles and yet, when we appear, there is little effect.

            When we speak, little is done by those who are in authority. It is because we are threshing sledges but our teeths are not as sharp as they ought to be. And if we will take up mountains, we must sharpen our teeths, we must allow God to sharpen our teeths for us. And haven been sharpened, let us take up that responsibility, because the bible says woe to them that are at ease in Zion. Zion is not a place for you to be at ease, it is a place where you must take up responsibility. It is a place where you go about enforcing the will and counsel of God. When you then sit comfortably in Zion, it then means you are happy, not minding the sadness of other people.

            The essence of your peace is that there could be peace in other places. The essence of your joy and prosperity is so that men can be joyful and there be prosperity in the lives of others. If you are okay and the multitudes are not okay, then you are wasting your time and you could be taking out of the equation. Let it not be that you will be one of the people we will be seeking, and we will not find...let it not be!

            Verse 16 of that Scripture says "You shall winnow them, the wind shall carry them away, And the whirlwind shall scatter them; You shall rejoice in the Lord, And glory in the Holy One of Israel. “The poor and needy seek water, but there is none, Their tongues fail for thirst. I, the Lord, will hear them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them." Your own is to winnow them, the responsibility of the wind is to carry them away. This verse looks like the very situation Nigeria is right now. There are a lot of poor people, suffering in the nation. The Lord said He will them, and not forsake them.

            Now God is getting busy, my question to you is: what are you doing? "Jesus said my Father is working, hitherto I work." It is an abberation for God to be working and we are idle. It is an abberation for God to be working in our lives and we are keeoing ourselves in the secret place, idling away and saying it does not matter. As long as we have money or my family has money, as long as i am okay or have the American passport, it does not matter. When things scatter in Nigeria, i can travel out. It is a wise minister of the Gospel that will take his or her place in God's plan.

            Even if you can run away as the minister, what about your congregations who do not have anywhere to run to? It is your responsibility that your congregation have a nation to live in and be proud of. You must rise up to defend them. What is the essence of being a sledge when you cannot break anything? As a minister of the gospel, you must go back to God and pray that He sharpens your teeth, and making you an effective Miniter, a vessel that can make a difference in his or her nation, and a vessel that can hold your glory on the earth. Allow God to make you a vessel of His glory. If the people rejoice in the Lord, it is because the servants of the Lord are making a difference in the places that they are.

            Let us stand for the truth, let us speak for the truth. It is not enough to just collect tithes and prohpet offerings from the people. Even those who bring these kind of monies to you as the minister, if they are mountains that must be beaten down, don't hesistate to do so. Don't let us be like Gehazi who collects offering from the man that God has no intention of collecting money from. It is not enough to receive dollars when God has not received them.

            If anything would change in Nigeria then it means you the Minister of God must change things and you can only do that when you become a threshing sledge with sharp teeth, that is not by name, but by impact. This is how you can make a difference without making noise. I pray that the grace of God be multiplied unto us in Jesus name. Amen!

Word of Confession: (Optional)

Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I have sinned against the LORD God - in the rebellion of my heart, I have disappointed your expectations on my life. I have fallen from Your grace and followed wrong influences around me. Today, I retrace my steps back to you - and I ask that in your mercy you accept me as your son and give to me (again) the promise of the Father - the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please, come and make my heart your home, and from there rule in the affairs of all men. In Jesus Name I have prayed.
