DIVINE CORRECTION DEMANDS DIVINE CONNECTION

YOU ARE CONNECTED TO BE DISCONNECTED (B)

REFERENCES: I KINGS 19:15-21, II KINGS 8:7-14, II KINGS 9: 1-6, 22, I KINGS 22: 24-25

When God desires to correct a man, he does so by connecting him to divinely appointed person in order to disconnect him from an unprofitable element. Now, while the person he is divinely connected to is not moving, it will appear as if there was no divine connection.

However, once the divinely appointed person begins to move, the desired disconnection and correction is inevitable.

I Kgs 19: 15-21

And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria: And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room. And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay...So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him. And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him, Go back again: for what have I done to thee? And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen, and slew them, and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave unto the people, and they did eat. Then he arose, and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.

God’s instructions to Elijah concerning the anointing of Hazael, Jehu and Elisha were specific: it was to take place in the wilderness of Damascus. He must meet all three men there.

However, when Elijah obeyed the command to go, only Elisha was found; the prophet only encountered and anointed Elisha.

Throwing his mantle upon him, Elijah anointed Elisha, disconnecting him from his business.

II Kgs 8: 7- 14

And Elisha came to Damascus; and Benhadad the king of Syria was sick; and it was told him, saying, The man of God is come hither. And the king said unto Hazael, Take a present in thine hand, and go, meet the man of God, and enquire of the LORD by him, saying, Shall I recover of this disease? So Hazael went to meet him, and took a present with him, even of every good thing of Damascus, forty camels' burden, and came and stood before him, and said, Thy son Benhadad king of Syria hath sent me to thee, saying, Shall I recover of this disease? And Elisha said unto him, Go, say unto him, Thou mayest certainly recover: howbeit the LORD hath shewed me that he shall surely die. And he settled his countenance stedfastly, until he was ashamed: and the man of God wept.

Years later, Elisha is visiting Syria, and Hazael is sent to him concerning the health of the Syrian king.

When they meet, Elisha stares at Hazael so steadily that it embarrasses him. Then, the prophet weeps. He weeps because of what he has seen about Hazael.

And Hazael said, Why weepeth my lord? And he answered, Because I know the evil that thou wilt do unto the children of Israel: their strong holds wilt thou set on fire, and their young men wilt thou slay with the sword, and wilt dash their children, and rip up their women with child. And Hazael said, But what, is thy servant a dog, that he should do this great thing? And Elisha answered, The LORD hath shewed me that thou shalt be king over Syria.

When asked, Elisha told him what he had seen and declared to him that he would be king over Syria.

So he departed from Elisha...

Now, on hearing this prophecy, Hazael did not remain with Elisha. He did not stay to be connected to Elisha, or to be anointed for the assignment that had been revealed to him.

He simply departed.

When a man is connected, he will follow that link, no matter what he experiences.

When Elijah threw his mantle upon Elisha, the former business man followed him. Not even the abrasive comments of Elijah could keep him back. That was a connection.

Prophecy without anointing will not take a man to his destination.

Hazael received the prophecy but did not receive the anointing.

No wonder he had to manipulate his way to the throne; small wonder he did not function in the divine will of God.

The tale of three men...

Elisha, mentioned last by God, became the first. He was divinely positioned and divinely connected.

Hazael, the first mentioned, was divinely positioned- he eventually came to the right place- but he was not connected to his helper.

It is possible to be at the divinely appointed place- to know the man of God- but not be connected to him. And, until a man is divinely connected, he cannot be disconnected from the source or error in his life.

Now, we consider the other...

II Kgs 9: 1-6, 22

And Elisha the prophet called one of the children of the prophets, and said unto him, Gird up thy loins, and take this box of oil in thine hand, and go to Ramothgilead: And when thou comest thither, look out there Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat the son of Nimshi, and go in, and make him arise up from among his brethren, and carry him to an inner chamber; Then take the box of oil, and pour it on his head, and say, Thus saith the LORD, I have anointed thee king over Israel. Then open the door, and flee, and tarry not.

Every Christian needs a man sent by God to go into his life. If you will be disconnected from your mess, you need a man, sent by God, to go in to your life.

First there must be a going in; then there can be a rising up.

I cannot make you rise up- pray, study, hate sin, serve God wholly- until I have gone in to your life. The principle is this: the Spirit of God in me must go in to your life before I can make you rise up; make you love God.

Rising up separates you from your brethren.

When a man yields his heart to the going in of the man of God, to be given to the LORD, he will rise up above his siblings and contemporaries. It will not matter what the status quo has been till that point. His life will experience a transformation that can only be divine.

And then, there is a carrying in...

Now, how do I carry a full grown man?

This is not a physical act. It has nothing to do with my physical strength.

When I can enter his spirit, I will carry him in. He will go where I go, pray when, and as I pray; his nature will change because I enter you to carry you to your destination.

When you are connected to a man who is flying in God, he will pull you, gradually, until you are disconnected from your past. As long as he keeps moving, whatever you were connected to in the past will find itself on the losing side.

Many Christians are struggling because they are still at the same level as their brethren because they are yet to take advantage of a moving man! They have not fully accessed the power of their connection to a moving God through His servant.

A quick recap:

First, there is an entering in. Then, a raising up, and a carrying in. There is a dimension that only those that are carried by divine hands can access. In that realm, you prosper, you succeed; you are impervious to the threatening of the wicked because they cannot get to that zone.

That is where you go and operate from, when you yield to this divine process of connection.

So the young man, even the young man the prophet, went to Ramothgilead. And when he came, behold, the captains of the host were sitting; and he said, I have an errand to thee, O captain. And Jehu said, Unto which of all us? And he said, To thee, O captain.

All this happened long after God spoke to Elijah concerning Jehu. Had he been anointed by Elijah at that time, Jehu would have been Elisha’s contemporary. Sadly, it took more than 10years after the divine command, for the Word to become a reality in his life. That also made Elisha his spiritual father.

When the prophet got to Ramoth-gilead, he spoke to a gathering of sitting captains. Yet, it was only Jehu that spoke back to him. Even while sitting as the others, he had a witness that the man had come for him.

When you have an encounter with your divine helper, there will be a witness in your soul. This was what caused the baby in Elizabeth’s womb to leap at the sound of Mary’s voice.

And he arose, and went into the house; and he poured the oil on his head, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I have anointed thee king over the people of the LORD, even over Israel.

Jehu arose because the prophet had settled the matter in the secret place of prayer. So it was that, the spirit of the prophet moved him in.

Just as Elisha had instructed, something in the word of the prophet made him arise up, and carried him in.

Jehu did not ask the prophet to keep speaking in the public. He understood that secret things are not discussed in the open.

In the inner chamber, the prophet poured oil on Jehu and declared to him the true state of his life; Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I have anointed thee king over the people of the LORD, even over Israel.

God was saying, I have anointed you king, for over 10 years. Yet, you have remained seated in the midst of captains, living below your destined position.

When Jehu returned to the captains, he did not sit with them anymore.

He was questioned by the other captains about the reason for the prophetic visit. One of them even called the prophet a mad man.

However, when the purpose of the visit was revealed, they all bowed to him as king.

Elijah did not take Elisha in before he anointed him. Why then did Jehu’s anointing require that?  

Unlike Elisha, Hazael and Jehu were both under authority. Unfortunately, it was the wrong kind.

I kgs 22: 22-24

But Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near, and smote Micaiah on the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee? And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see in that day, when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself

When Zedekiah openly despised and humiliated Micaiah, the younger prophet calmly explained to him that he (Zedekiah) needed to go in to the inner chamber if he wanted to hear the Spirit of the LORD.

In the same vein, the prophet would not have been able to dispense revelation to Jehu if he had not carried him into the inner chamber. The mind of the Spirit could only be revealed to the one who goes in.

And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many? (22)

This conversation was between Joram, the king and Jehu, his captain- his subordinate.

Jehu’s response to Joram’s enquiry of peace was not only directed to Joram; he also attacked his mother.

Now, when your subordinate blatantly insults your mother, and calls her out for what she truly is, you should know that he is no longer the lesser of you two.

Well, Joram got the message. He knew that the spell of his mother over Jehu was destroyed. But it was too late for him.

And Joram turned his hands, and fled, and said to Ahaziah, There is treachery, O Ahaziah. And Jehu drew a bow with his full strength, and smote Jehoram between his arms, and the arrow went out at his heart, and he sunk down in his chariot. Then said Jehu to Bidkar his captain, Take up, and cast him in the portion of the field of Naboth the Jezreelite: for remember how that, when I and thou rode together after Ahab his father, the LORD laid this burden upon him; Surely I have seen yesterday the blood of Naboth, and the blood of his sons, saith the LORD; and I will requite thee in this plat, saith the LORD. Now therefore take and cast him into the plat of ground, according to the word of the LORD.

Now, when Jehu spoke concerning the execution of judgement upon the house of Ahab, he referred to the words spoken by Elijah. He even called to remembrance his meeting with the prophet in the field of Naboth, over 10 years earlier!

You see, Jehu had been connected to Elijah while he was alive. Sadly, the bewitchment of Ahab and Jezebel kept him from walking in the full reality of that connection.

The anointing brought to his remembrance the destiny encounters that he had been unable to access because of the wrong connection in his life.

The wrong leader Jehu followed had kept him from getting to the place of divine connection and anointing.

Even when he encountered Elijah, the bewitchment over his life did not allow the anointing to come upon his head.

So it was that this man’s destiny was delayed. His soul tie with Elijah was not activated because of the bewitchment over his life.

Therefore, he lived way below his true contemporary, and remained at the level of those he was meant to lead.  

It is time to cast off every bewitchment that had laid hold of you and kept you from your divine helpers.

It is not enough to be where God wants you to be; it is time to make progress as He wants to as well.

PRAYER POINTS

In the name of Jesus,

  • Holy Ghost, help me to be at the right place at the right time.
  • My life, receive sufficient fire to progress in destiny.
  • Any bewitchment hiding me from my helpers; I bury you by fire.
  • Any bewitchment against my progress in destiny; I damage your power by fire

DIVINE CORRECTION DEMANDS DIVINE CONNECTION

DIVINE CONNECTION ENHANCES DIVINE ORIENTATION (B)

REFERENCES: JEREMIAH 29:8-9, NUMBERS 13:30-33, DEUTERONOMY 9:1-3

God connects you in order to expose you to new orientation, and thus effect a change in your mindset, perception and judgement.

A man is a product of his orientation. What he believes, says, and does is a function of what he has been exposed to. If he must change, then there is need for a new orientation.

A man who argues with the truth and struggles to adjust to divine standard is simply walking in alignment with his orientation. He will not change until he is connected by God for divine orientation.

The ultimate purpose of divine connection is for transformation, elevation, divine advancement. That transformation cannot happen until there is a divine correction of everything that has been negatively affected by error.  And that divine correction is a product of relevant divine information.

No information, no correction

No correction, no transformation

Jer 29:8-9

For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.

There are prophets and diviners in the midst of the Church. Many have been sold away to divination and prophetic work in the House of God. To such, God is saying:

You are being deceived.

The words of the prophets and diviners, in the guise of prophetic works, are false and deceitful. Sadder still, their words are powerful enough to make your soul dream, and your dreams will agree with, and confirm their words of falsehood. Even so, they are lies.

Brethren, do not joke with the word of God. It is the more sure word of prophecy. It is the divine standard of truth. No prophecy, confirmed by dreams, can supersede the Word of God.    

Discard the words of the false prophets and diviners; trash the dreams that consolidate them, because they did not come from God.

Num 13:30-33

And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

Of the two men that presented God well among the 12 spies, only Caleb was testified of as having another spirit. This is because Joshua had already been connected to Moses and had received the same spirit as the man of God.

Caleb (whose name means dog), when he was connected to Joshua, received a new spirit and orientation, casting off the old dog spirit.

His connection to Joshua exposed him to new information. Therefore, he spoke words that were hard for the others 10 men to envision and confess.

‘We are well able to overcome’, he said. His confession was a product of new orientation.

Now, if he spoke because of what he had been exposed to, where did the other 10 learn to speak the way they did? Why were they so insistent that, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we’?

How could they judge that the giants were stronger, when their own strength had not been tested? By what criteria did they come to that conclusion?

It is noteworthy that they had just conquered Egypt, which was the world power of that time. Yet, they insisted that the Anaks were unbeatable! They did not consider that the same power that made them victorious over Egypt was  also able to give them victory over the giants.

Many have also judged witchcraft and wicked powers in their world as unbeatable, as stronger than they are because of what they have heard. Many of us glorify the devil because of the orientation we were exposed to in the early days of our Christian journey. They fail to ask these principalities a simple question: where were you when I surrendered my life to Christ? Why couldn’t you stop me then? Why then do you presume to stop me from receiving all that accompanies salvation?

Deut 9:1-3

Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great and fenced up to heaven, A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak!

And here is revealed the source of their false confession. They spoke according to the information they had received.

‘...of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak!’

The report of the 10 spies was a product of what they had heard about their enemies: that nobody had ever been able to successfully challenge the Anaks. They based their conclusions on what they had heard, deciding that the Anaks were stronger, when they had not tested their strength.

Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.

That you would understand this point!

There is no unbeatable power; no unstoppable personality before you.

Today, we are here to stand against and conquer every power and personality that has been reputed in our households as unbeatable.

It is not about the man on the altar. It was not about the people of Israel. It is about the LORD God; the mighty God in the man.

It is He who, in His power, destroys the wicked and brings them down before you. You cannot do what He has not already done. Therefore, you are simply to walk in the physical, cast out, and quickly destroy the powers He has already cast down at your feet.

Now, when the consuming fire burns, there is no physical sign of destruction. However, in the realm of the spirit, that personality is roasted.

So, while they are standing, they have already been brought down, ready for you to drive them out and destroy them quickly.

The question is: what do you believe?

Many in the camp of God do not believe the report of God. Rather, they have been made to believe the report of false prophets, diviners, and fable peddlers.

....as the LORD hath said unto thee.

This reveals the need for new divine orientation. You are connected to know and live by what the LORD as said. When you are divinely connected, you no longer live in fear of the boastings and raging of wicked powers; you no longer walk by fear-filled testimonies of others. You live only as the LORD hath said unto thee.

You are connected for new orientation so that you can challenge, reject and cast down every lying thought. You no longer believe that there is an unstoppable, unbeatable enemy, an unbreakable pattern, or that there is an unsolvable problem.

You walk in the confidence that God has destroyed them and set them up for you to drive out and destroy, quickly.

You are born into the Kingdom for this purpose: to conquer what others were unable to conquer; to end the reign of evil that others could not end.

PRAYER POINTS

In the name of Jesus,

  • I charge my life; receive the raw fire of God, to handle every situation, to cut down every giant; to conquer what no man can conquer; to cast down everything exalting itself against the knowledge of God.
  • I am here to withstand and conquer what no one has been able to conquer.
  • Any evil worker in my household, showing himself unstoppable over my life; your time has ended. I shoot you down by fire.
  • Any evil worker, showing himself unbeatable over my life; I shoot you down by fire.
  • Any agent of darkness working evil against my destiny, claiming to be unstoppable; today, I slay you by fire.
  • Any wicked power that has been frustrating my progress, showing himself to be unstoppable; today, I destroy you by fire.
  • Father, send Your fire before me, and destroy every enemy of my destiny from before me.

DIVINE CORRECTION DEMANDS DIVINE CONNECTION

THE MYSTERY OF THE CORNERSTONE (B)

REFERENCES: ACTS 10: 11- 16, ROMANS 15: 15-16, PHILIPPIANS 2: 17-18, HOSEA 8:8

When God wants to correct something in your household; when He wants to start something new in your world, He will pick someone as the cornerstone- the platform for the establishment of the divine.

Cornerstones are raised to connect humanity to divinity. They are called to connect humanity to divine wisdom, power, prosperity, strength, and standard; to the heavenly world, where God is the Master.

Now, it is important to understand that correction will bring contention. Whenever you declare an end to worldliness, powerlessness, poverty, death, immorality...in your world, you must prepare for contention.

This means that your destiny demands your ability to anticipate contention and deal with it, so that it does not take you out of your divine place.

Christ, as the Chief Cornerstone, is Chief over other cornerstones.

Peter was a cornerstone, but he was displaced. Peter had declared before his brethren that he had been chosen by God to take the gospel to the Gentiles (Acts 15:7).Sadly however, that role was taken from him and given to Paul.

When you are called to be a cornerstone, be careful. There are powers you must contend with and kill, so that they do not kill your destiny.

Acts 10: 11-16

And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth: Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.

The vessel that descended came down from heaven. However, on its way to the earth, many beasts hijacked the vessel. Note that there were many beasts of the earth. Yet, the vessel came from heaven.

Those who lack this understanding glorify devils in the name of deliverance, failing to understand that the beasts do not define the vessel; once the beasts are killed, the vessel’s divine nature will be revealed.

This is the life of many in the kingdom of Christ. The uncontrollable anger, immorality, unfaithfulness, and the delight in sin...these are simply manifestations of earthly beasts in divine vessels.

Every vessel is from heaven. However, on our way to this world, many beasts pollute our lives and seek to be significant through us. When you are called and sent to a people therefore, you must be ready to rise and kill the beasts.

Mary Magdalene had 7 beasts; Jesus cast them out and she followed Him, becoming a divine vessel in His ministry. If He had failed to cast them out, they would have cast Him out.

You may have been called to help people in your world- to change the pattern of evil that has defined their lives for so long. Well, as you do the good deed, you will do well to recognise that there are beasts in them, and that these beasts will rise up to mess up your life, if you fail to cast them out.

Now, consider: God did not kill the beasts. He commanded Peter to kill them. That is the duty of a cornerstone- to rise and kill the beasts.

At the time of the vision, Peter was hungry. God expected that hungry Peter would be keen to kill some serpents, crocodiles, and wild beasts, and eat them!

Mary Magdalene followed Jesus because He killed the beasts in her. If Peter had obeyed the divine charge-rise, kill and eat- the delivered vessel would also have followed him.

Sadly, Peter, though he was indeed hungry, disobeyed the LORD, three times! He failed to kill the beast.

He did go to the Gentiles. He did preach. Cornelius and his household were saved and baptised in the Holy Ghost.

However, his failure to kill the beasts frustrated the manifestation of divine greatness in the life of Cornelius. He was the first fruit of the Gentile world; his entire household was saved, but he did no exploits with the Holy Ghost.

When you are connected to a person as a cornerstone, make sure that you kill the beasts; in doing so, you ensure that the person will not just be connected; he will also do exploits.

Do not allow fear to keep you from this crucial task...when you fail to kill the beasts, the person would be a Christian, but will be unable to do exploits.

When Peter failed as the first cornerstone of the Gentile church, God took over Paul and he became the next cornerstone.

Rom 15:15-16

Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God, That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

Not all offerings are acceptable before God. For it to hit the throne of God, it must be sanctified by the Holy Ghost, and that will only happen when the Gentile is spiritually on fire.

Since the Holy Ghost has no flesh or bones, He needed Paul. It was his job to minister to the Gentiles; ensuring that their offerings were acceptable, having being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

Thus, Paul became a cornerstone, connecting the Gentiles to the Holy Ghost.

In order to do this, Paul needed to do what Peter did not do; kill the beasts.

Brethren, when you are called to correct an error in your household, do not take this matter lightly. Many have died and lost their place while on the assignment of transforming their families. They died because, while they busied themselves with transforming the family, they failed to kill the beasts.

Phil 2:17-18

Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all. For the same cause also do ye joy, and rejoice with me.

Paul was able to fulfil his calling as a cornerstone because he did two things: sacrifice and service.

Whatever it is that you have been called to correct in your household, you will do well to not be carried away by your achievements and blessings. Be ready to deal with the matter of the beasts, by killing them.

When a man is only saved, the beasts in him will contend with the divine agenda for that man. Not only that, they will contend with the cornerstone set over the man; to kill him.

When the cornerstone lacks understanding, he will equate the man with the beasts, and err in judgement concerning his mission in the man’s life.

Paul was sent to the Gentiles. Yet, he perceived that the beasts were keen on killing him. He could sense that there was a conspiracy to pour out his blood because of his assignment.

Brethren, do not be discouraged when, in the course of being a blessing to your family, even to your parents, you sense something negative springing up from them against you. Understand that there are beastlike powers rising up against you, seeking to pour out your blood because you are a blessing to your family.

This is why you must be ready to offer sacrifice and service in the course of your duty as the cornerstone. Do not compare yourself with those who live their lives without regard foolishly. Choose rather to follow after those who walk wisely.

It is also in this that we rejoice as Christians. When you have a pastor that offers sacrifice and service on your behalf, you have reason to joy, because he will receive relevant revelation from God for you.

A church were these are lacking will lack joy.

This is the enemy’s fight-to kill those called to this office and for these offerings.

Offer sacrifice and service. Kill the beast.

Hos 8:8

Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure.

When a man is swallowed up, he reflects the one that has swallowed him up. This means that you need to swallow up your family, in order to ensure that they live, no more as directed by ancestral and household beasts that had once swallowed them up, but as you do- following after the Chief Cornerstone.

The disciples reflected Jesus because He had them swallowed up. That is why they were called Christians.

When a man is swallowed up the devil, he will become a vessel without pleasure; used up by the wicked pleasures of the enemy.
