DOMINION OVER DARKNESS (PART IX) HOW TO STAY RAPTURE READY
- Anyone who will go to higher ground must learn to clean up. What does it mean to clean up? What are the things that you are clinging on to? What are the lower things of this world that you are holding on to? Those are the things that will prevent you from flying. Part of the cleanup is to break away from ungodly relationships; break any relationship that is capable of taking you to hell. Luke 13:23-27 “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? and he said unto them, strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: then shall ye begin to say, we have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity”. Let these words condition your mind and your actions and your walk with God. From time to time, reflect on these words and pray. Don’t take things for granted.
- The rapture is going to be a selective encounter. I cor. 9:27 “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway”. After you have identified yourself as a child of the most High God, may you not be a castaway in the name of Jesus. The rapture is not going to be a mass action but a selective encounter. There is going to be a lot of left behinds. The Bible says, “Two women shall be grinding at the mill, the one shall be taken, and the other left”. Matt. 24:41. My greatest desire is that every one of us in Holy Ghost Fellowship International and those who are connected to us from different nations will fly. The greatest responsibility of leadership is direction; don’t follow a leader who doesn’t know where he is going. Don’t let anybody pastor you into hell.
