THE PRICE OF SPIRITUAL POWER: BURDEN FOR MANTLE BY IYKE ORIAKU

THE PRICE OF SPIRITUAL POWER: BURDEN FOR MANTLE BY IYKE ORIAKU



NOW THAT BOTH GENUINE AND FAKE PREACHERS ARE LOOKING FOR THE CREDIBILITY OF OLDER GENUINE MEN OF GOD, THIS IS THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL POST I HAVE READ CONCERNING SPIRITUAL FATHERHOOD!

Don’t you know that there were people that lived with Archbishop Benson Idahosa of blessed memory, yet, they did not catch anything from him?…

There are people who have read all the books of Bishop David Oyedepo and even worked with him who have no trace of the life of the supernatural…

Thank God for followership…

But the burden beneath the followership is what provokes God to release His mantle upon men …

There is no great man of God anywhere that has any mantle to give you …

Because the grace they carry is not their own …

The Owner of the grace they carry is waiting for your burden to match His Burden…

Mantles don’t fall from heaven…

Every man is carrying his mantle around …

But God is depending on your burden for Him to produce your mantle for you …

All it takes is time, it will break out…

Elisha was producing his own mantle when he was following Elijah …

People were mocking him…

But the mantle in him was growing…

And when the time came, the mantle Began to speak…

Sir, don’t be following great men of God, thinking you will catch their mantle…

They don’t have mantle for you…

Because the Bible said that no one can receive anything unless it is given from heaven …

If It was by followership, Why didn’t Gehazi catch the mantle of Elisha…

Gehazi used Elisha as his Facebook profile picture…

Everyday, online, he was calling Elisha his spiritual father…

At the backdrop on his pulpit was the picture of Elisha…

He was sowing seed into Elisha’s ministry, yet, his heart was far from the Man that made Elisha…

No wonder all he was able to reap was the wind…

Sir, if you don’t want to follow God, don’t waste time following great men…

It will not pay you…

If all you want is to enjoy the credibility of a genuine man of God and be using their name to be defrauding people, then, I am sure, you are ready …

Leprosy is coming…

Men who have not died on the Cross are following great men, here and there…

Competing with their rivals with their spiritual fatherhood…

Listen to me, sir, don’t be distracted by this madness of ‘my spiritual father’ going on everywhere now…

Go and look for God…

When you find Him, He will lead you to a spiritual father that will guide you…

It is an error to your destiny and ministry, for you to leave God and be looking for men so that doors will be opened for you when you mention their names….

I have searched my bible, it is only at the mention of the Name of Jesus, that every knee must bow…

If you have made peace with that Name, sir, it will work for you…

I believe in spiritual fatherhood because I know what it adds to your journey…

But don’t let a man take the place God should take….

The man you are looking for has sought God and found him …

When he was at your age, he was in every praying camp, mountain, and night vigil, growing the mantle he was carrying…

Now, you think you will just read his books or bring him to your pulpit and catch His irit….

Its not true…

You can take picture with him and people will allow you to preach in their churches…

But there is something about that man you have not caught yet…

Because the bible said “…no man taketh this honour unto himself…”

What made him is still too far from you!

You are still a stranger to His decree of burden…

There is still a price to pay sir, to catch a burden from God…

Then, you will start working in double portion of his grace…

What separated Elisha from the other sons of the prophets was his burden for God …

It was his burden for God that gave him his mandate and his mandate produced the mantle …

Man of God, your mantle is waiting for you to identify your mandate …

If you don’t have a mandate, forget about mantle…

This why God told us in Jeremiah to call on Him, that he will show us great and mighty things about ourselves we know not… (33:3)

Stop looking for mantle when you have no mandate…

Your mandate is born out of your burden for God… And your burden is your ministry….

Many people have branches of their churches, with huge crowd…

But they have no ministry yet…

No definite assignment…

Watch out, soon, they will lose those their churches to those with ministries (assignments)….

Stop looking for money to build cathedral..

Go and cry to God for a fresh burden, in case you have lost yours…

If not, you and your family alone will remain in that cathedral soon…

Your spiritual father must not be a television evangelist…

He must not be among the famous preachers we have in our time…

Don’t join those who are rushing to men of God with 200 cars in their compound to be their spiritual fathers…

You don’t choose your father…

God chose him for you…

And He is depending on what you are carrying inside, to choose a spiritual father for you.

Many people are rushing to Canaan land, to submit to Papa Oyedepo because they saw 50,000 capacity church…

It is very funny, how we are moved by sights and size…

Thank God for the grace of God upon papa Oyedepo….

But I have seen men of God that have been paying tithes in his church for close to 20 years now, to contact his grace, but they still don’t have up to 20 committed members in their Churches…

Sir, you don’t chose your father…

Your burden chooses your father for you..

Your spiritual father God wants for you might not have up to 30 members in his church, but yet he will father you to grow an international ministry…

It is our vain spirits that is taking us to men who are controlling crowd to father us….

Long ago, some of us have purged ourselves from this new age madness that is robbing young ministers of their originality in Christ….

Sir, go inside the house and lock yourself…

Don’t go with any christian book….

Don’t go with any audio message

Enter their with your bible …

Forget food ….

Forget sleep….

And be determined not to open that door until God gives you a fresh burden that will separate you in a time like this…

You need it sir…

It is too noisy being in the crowd …

Oh! But when you will catch that burden, it will place a seal of distinction on your ministry…

And this generation will know that you have found God…

Forget this competition going on everywhere in ministry…

I am saying there must be something more than this…

May another man not take your place in this end time agenda of God …

Let an usual hunger for prayer hit you where you are now…

In Jesus Mighty Name….

Let us pray!
