“Any massive move of the Spirit is a recombination of the previous moves” -Pst Poju Oyemade
Even what am writing is not new! I’ll be a fool to say I have a revelation that is higher than the fathers of faith. Alot claim they don’t have fathers of faith that they are following, they are the fathers of themselves but the truth is no child comes from the sky there have to be the coming together of a man and a woman to produce a child. Even when you don’t have one you can adopt one. Young ministers want to dilapidate what the old ministers have built by pulling down all their teachings, the intention of many is to get flocks to themselves violently
Job 24:2 Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof.
And scriptures advice not to remove the old landmark and to enter not into the field of the fatherless
Proverbs 23:10 Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless:
Let me tell you what you cheat yourself of when you don’t acknowledge the fathers or when you want to build on your own revelation without building on what others have built on. You cheat yourself of entering into the labour of the fathers
John 4:38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are ENTERED INTO THEIR LABOURS.
“Ministry is not gift, it is inheritance” -Pst Poju Oyemade
If you’re to reap then it has to be in a field of harvest and scriptures said not to enter into the field of the fatherless, you know why? You’ll have nothing to reap when you enter into such field.
“The work of ministry will only become a labour when it ought to be an inheritance of the labour of the fathers if we do not acknowledge the fathers that have gone ahead of us”
I have seen one of the things that happened in Kenneth E. Hagin meetings, when he was preaching and all of them entered into the joy of the Holy Ghost and they all started laughing, have seen it happened now in two different meetings that I attended, I realized that one of them specifically said he wanted that thing that happened in that meeting and really it was not a joke people were actually laughing like the sky. The experience has not left me, Kenneth E. Hagin said that when you face defeat you must learn to laugh and I tell you that thing is real, the truth is this men have laboured and what we need to do is to enter into their labour. For me I don’t like stress I just love to enter into what others have done and that’s why even in research in academics they will always require the paper you’re considering for your own work, they won’t agree that you have a new one, if this can happen in the academic line then why are we bringing up new things without seeing from the old?
“When a young minister does not enter into the labour of the fathers it is because of pride”
The effectiveness of any ministry lies on what other ministers that have gone ahead of us have done. You can’t build a new foundation, God has already used Paul to build that foundation and the truth is it was built on Christ, so don’t bother to build a new one
1 Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
The truth is something may be wrong with what is built on it but nothing is wrong with the foundation that has been erected, even when there is any problem on the building, you can break the building down where there is fault but not the foundation, the building is new but the foundation is always old, at least they leave it for some days before building on it and that’s why Paul said to be careful how you build on it
1 Corinthians 3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. BUT LET EVERY MAN TAKE HEED HOW HE BUILDETH THEREUPON.
“There is no new thing you’re doing, trace it there is always a link to the the old ministry”
I have seen the labour that a man entered into through the labour of another minister and I see that thing produce a more powerful gift but the link is through the previous ones. When you want to build your own tabernacle you’ll be the only one to live their and die their, you’ll not be productive as a minister without seeing the previous moves of old ministers. It’s clear to find ministers who are in the line that God has committed to you and then see what God will have for you through them. You must know that there many fields to inherit!
