SECRETS THAT HELPED MY MINISTRY WHEN MY MEMBERSHIP WAS 7

Ministry is a divine mandate handed over to humanity to demonstrate the love of divinity. It is an opportunity to demonstrate divine agenda and concept to humanity. I started my ministry with Ghc 4.60. For the first two years of my ministry my total membership was under seven. I was tempted many times to give up but these are the  things i did that helped me. 

1. THE VOICE OF THE FATHER;
I started ministry not knowing what to teach or preach. What i used to do was to teach and preach the messages of my Spiritual father. I have learnt to value and treasure the voice of fathers. My spiritual father taught me that significant changes can be made when we take insignificant steps. Whenever I face a challenge that was above my strength, i would just ask for the inputs of my father. Godly counsel from my spiritual father helped me to be focused on my assignment,


2. DEDICATION TO DUTY:
In those days it was easy for me to give up on that which i was called to do in life and ministry. There were many times i decided to move back to Takoradi because the ministry was not working. I got to know that a person's commitment and obsession to his assignment is what determines whether he makes it or not. I decided to be faithful and committed to myself and my ministry.I sold myself out completely to my calling. I spent time visiting other ministries to learn what i did not know. I remember visiting 13 prophetic ministries to find out why they were succeeding or failing.

3.NEVER GIVE UP
One of the secrets that helped me when I started off in ministry was the tenacity to hold on to my purpose and not giving up. I have faced all manner of battles in life and in ministry. I was told i was not a good teacher and preacher of the word. Someone said i was not called by God and i remember a senior prophet of God even using his pulpit to discredit me and my ministry. But what i have learnt is to hold on until i become that which God wants me to become. Never give up your ministry because of obstacles and accusations of men.
You will make it.

12 UNCOMMON DESTINY HELPERS

1.DIVINE CONNECTORS: Divine connectors are the missing link between who you are and who you were designed to be. Most of the the time they look insignificant because they don't have what you are looking for. They look very ordinary but the strange thing about them is that they can connect you to what you are looking for. Naaman was healed of leprosy because there was a maid in his house who became a divine connector. The entrance of divine connecters into your life links you to your future. An encounter with them causes doors to be opened.
Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the Lord had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper. And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman's wife. And she said unto her mistress, Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy.
2 Kings 5:1-3

2. GATEKEEPERS OF NATION: Gatekeepers of nations are like divine connectors but they have what you are looking for and can help you access that which belongs to you and your generations. They have the influence, ability, connections to bring you to your next level. One introduction from them makes you accepted in greatness. A word from them makes you receive appointment letter without application letter.They turn your prayer topics into testimonies. Joseph was talented but was still in prison but when he met a gatekeeper of nations in the person of Pharoah, he became a prime minister within 24 hours. In the year 2010, I was struggling in life and ministry until the Lord released a gatekeeper of nations in ministry for me. Within 6 months, doors and favors that were impossible were just opened for me. Without my effects and connections I was automatically connected.
Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.

3.THE GIFTED: These are a group of divine helpers who are highly skillful in their chosen professions,talented and gifted. When they come into your life, they use their gifts, talents and skills to help you accomplish God's purpose for your life. When evil spirit troubled Saul, it was a gifted person who helped him to be delivered.
And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a man that can play well, and bring him to me. Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the Lord is with him.
1 Samuel 16:17-18

4.BURDEN CARRIERS: These people are released into your life to help you carry your burdens when the road to your destiny becomes rough and the burden becomes heavy. They are faithful and available. They stay with you till your glory is revealed; they are the ones whose assignment is to stick with you till you accomplish your purpose.Burden carriers are trusted people you can lean on in times of trouble; they are there with you when everybody leaves.Jesus Christ needed burden carriers to accomplish His assignment. When everyone was gone, the 12 disciples where there with Him.
From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
John 6:66-69.
Receive grace to encounter your destiny helpers before the year ends.


5. LADDER HOLDERS: Ladder holders are people who keep you grounded in your principles whilst you are fulfilling your destiny.They are the people who help you focus on your assignment when everyone is saying you have arrived. They make sure you don't deviate from your assignment. When you climb the ladder of destiny to the top, you will need ladder holders to hold your ladder steady as you work to achieve great things. Ladder holders know where you are coming from and where you are going and remind you of your goals.

7. THE MAN OF GOD: Men of God are carriers of mantle that makes you matter in the game of life. They are gifts to the body of Christ. Believe in God and you shall be established, believe in His prophets and you shall prosper. Your encounter with a man of God is an encounter with the mind of God.When Saul the donkey chaser encountered the man of God Samuel, Saul became a King. When the disciples encountered Jesus, they became apostles. When the Shunamite woman received, respected and honored her man of God, she became a joyful mother of a child.

8. UNCOMMON MENTOR: An uncommon mentor is a picture of your future; the master key to your success in life. they are people who have been at where you are going and knows the terrain.Their experiences, scars and wisdom will save you from making costly mistakes in life. Jesus Christ mentored the disciples, Elijah mentored Elisha.
May you your destiny helpers locate you in Jesus name


9. THE DISCIPLES: The disciples are a group of destiny helpers that God brings on your path to destiny to help, serve and support you.they are followers of your leadership, who believe in your vision, are persuaded about you and ready to sacrifice to see fulfillment. They have the ability to serve you and your vision. These people are faithful, available and teachable. They believe in your words and put your words into action. They are your legacy to posterity. Jesus needed the disciples to make full proof of His ministry.

10. THE UNCOMMON ENEMY: You will need an uncommon enemy to succeed and accomplish the purpose for which you have been commissioned. An uncommon enemy is a man/ woman God releases on your path to destiny who helps to bring the best out of you as he tries to oppose you and your destiny. It took Goliath who was an uncommon enemy for David to become a star. You need an uncommon enemy who will fight what you carry in order to have a divine promotion in life. An uncommon enemy will give you what your friend will never give. Recently, i encountered a man who told me plainly that he does not like me, but by the time i was done talking with him, he gave me a cheque non of my ministry partners in that part of the world has ever given me.

11. THE UNCOMMON SPOUSE: The person you have married is a refection of your wisdom. Your spouse is a picture of your destiny. The uncommon spouse comes into your life to keep you focused on your assignment. The depth of knowledge of a person is seen in the spouse he/she has entrusted his/her love and destiny to. If i see who you are planning of getting married too, i can tell you of the future you will have.When you have the right spouse, he/she becomes a threat to your adversaries and energizes you to pursue your assignment with excellence. King Solomon's heart was turned from God to the other gods because of wrong relationship. The right marriage will increase your rate of success in life whilst the wrong spouse will increase your rate of failure.

12. JESUS CHRIST: The Jesus factor is the most important factor in fulfilling your destiny. There is judgement after death. What you do with the Jesus factor determines what happens after death. It is not enough to be a preacher, prophesy, be good or even give to the church. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'. You must be born again.
May you encounter your destiny helpers now in Jesus name.

FOUR FACTS ABOUT DESTINY HELPERS

You are not a biological accident; you are a specimen of God's glory and born to fulfill a purpose in life. Everyone has a purpose to fulfill and in order to fulfill your purpose, there are people assigned to help you accomplish it. Purpose suffers when helpers are not released. Destiny helpers are people assigned in your life to add value, usefulness, and significance to your life; they contribute to your welfare and inspire you to strive to fulfill your destiny. They come into your life to help you fulfill what God has commissioned you to do. They are positioned by God along your path to help you become all that God wants you to become. Naaman needed the little maid, Elijah needed a widow, Moses needed Aaron and Jesus needed the twelve disciples. My life and ministry took a different turn when the Lord sent an uncommon destiny helper my way in the year 2010. An encounter with a destiny helper can let you accomplish a 40 year task in 4 years.

FOUR FACTS ABOUT DESTINY HELPERS
*Destiny helpers are supernatural agents of intervention
*They take you to where God wants you to be
*They are burden carriers for you.
* They prepare you for your destined position.

May your destiny helpers locate you in Jesus name.

The essence of life is to be a problem solver.Successful people are problem solvers.

2.CELEBRATE OTHER PEOPLE'S SUCCESS-I learnt that successful people are not only obsessed with their success but they also celebrate the success of others. Those who know how to genuinely celebrate the success of others are the truly successful.

3.THEY RAISE PEOPLE AND HELP OTHERS TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL-Truly successful people don't use their success to intimidate others rather they raise people up.Successful people have the habit of helping other people to be successful. Jesus helped Peter to become an apostle.

4.SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DON'T LIVE IN THE PAST-Successful people interpret the events of the past in the present so that they can capture the future.Please don't live in the past.

5.SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO GOSSIP ABOUT OTHERS-When i am in the presence of a truly successful person i can tell by what they say about other people.Time is precious and the successful use their time productively. They don't spend time gossiping about the success of others.Envy is a dangerous disease

7 MISTAKES I MADE IN MY EARLY MINISTRY


1. NOT RAISING A LOT OF LEADERS: Ministry is a divine institution handled over to man to connect humanity to divinity.It is my belief that the success of the next generation depends on the success of the present generation. Therefore when you are called into ministry you have a responsibility to mentor and raise the next generation. Early in my ministry, i made this mistake of not raising many leaders.I corrected this mistakes by turning followers to leaders through mentorship, seminars and other conferences. Elijah raised Elisha, Jesus raised the 12 apostles. Who are you raising in life and ministry?


2. NOT BUILDING A STRONG STRUCTURE: Anointing is good but anointing without a strong structure will lead to destruction. The strength of any ministry largely depends on its organizational & administrative structure. I corrected this mistake by working on my administration, leadership and planning. It takes strong leadership skills with planning for productivity and profitability in ministry. I also brought on board other people who have the skills i was lacking. I respected their gifts and calling and delegated to them while i focused on the core of my ministry.

3. INVITING THE WRONG GUEST MINISTERS:Not every minister must be brought into your ministry. They may be gifted, anointed and more graced but do you really need their ministry? Are they coming to help you build and strengthen your hands? I made the mistake of inviting 'wrong' ministers to my pulpit and they scattered what i was building. Some of these were genuine preachers but they did not have the spirit of the builder.I remember inviting this particular minister to my ministry and a family that were committed to the Lord, the church and to me stopped coming to church. Ministers with the spirit of the builder will establish your work.

4. NOT GIVING THE CHURCH MY MAXIMUM ATTENTION: In the parable of the talents, they were judged based on what they were given.We will be judged based on what we have been given. I made this mistake and learnt from it immediately. In my early ministry, I neglected my congregation in the name of blessing others with what I have been given. I saw the church not growing and people started leaving the church.I came to myself when some of these ministries neglected me when i went through persecutions. Remember, anyone who does not provide for his own people, especially for his family, has disowned the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. You must bless other ministries with your grace but don't do that to do detriment of own ministry. Young minister, give your ministry all the attention.

5. CONNECTING WITH WRONG MINISTERS: Associations are important for acceleration in ministry. Without godly associations you cannot go far in life and ministry but there are some associations that will jeopardize your life and ministry.This mistake nearly cost me my life and ministry. Who are your friends? Who do you listen to? Who do you submit to? Your life can never change until you change the dominant voice in your life. You need Godly association. Which platform do you minister on? Check it young minister. You don't need jealous driven, envy packaged ungodly associations.

6. NOT MAKING GOOD USE OF LITTLE OPPORTUNITIES: I made this mistake in my first two years in ministry. I have learnt from it and I now know that you can do so much with so little. Never despise small beginnings. I now turn little favors to great opportunities

7. NOT MAKING MY MATERIALS MORE ACCESSIBLE: I love writing because writing is my passion. I have a lot of materials on various topics but i realized that my materials are not easily accessible.Young minister, start writing. put your thoughts on paper even if you are not ready to publish them. You must have a product: a book, CD or any other product. You can pastor your ministry beyond the confines of the four walls of your church. Become innovative. Facebook, twitter, whatsapp, instagram, linkedin, google plus, youtube and many others are good platforms to make your materials and teachings available but be careful.
Prophet Bernard Elbernard Nelson-Eshun.

7 THINGS EVERY YOUNG MINISTERS' WIFE SHOULD KNOW

 1. YOU ARE THE EXPRESSION OF HIS MINISTRY: A pastor's wife is the first ministry of the husband. You must become the first fan of your husband and his ministry. Your husband will go through accusation, criticism and persecution and you must be the first person to stand with him.The success of his ministry is an expression of your success. Be the first person to demonstrate strong belief in your husband and his ministry. There will come times of discouragement but remember that your husband needs a cheer leader. He needs someone who believes and encourages him, and he needs you to be that someone. You might know all his shortcomings but demonstrate belief in him and the ministry. Send him a message after he is done with preaching. Tell him how great a minister he is.

2. HIS MINISTRY IS AS STRONG AS YOUR MARRIAGE: A strong marriage plays a pivotal role in the success of a ministry. Behind every successful ministry is a successful family life. Marriage was instituted by God to make things better for the man and woman in it. When you understand God's purpose for the marriage institution, it will go a long way to help you build a successful life and ministry. The ministry of your husband is only as strong as your marriage. The enemy would do every thing to fight your marriage and your husband's ministry but do everything in your power to make the marriage work
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
Genesis 2:18.


3. UNDERSTAND YOUR UNIQUENESS AND PURSUE YOUR VISION: You are unique and special to God and you have a responsibility of discovering your uniqueness and purpose as you use it to be a blessing to your husband’s ministry. You are a peculiar specimen of divine glory and a creature of great value. You carry the answers to the questions of the world. You have impeccable abilities, talents and unusual grace. Discover your uniqueness and purpose and use it to be a blessing to his ministry. Discover your placement in God’s agenda and pursuit. It is my belief that not every pastor’s wife is called into the preaching ministry but I also believe that every pastor’s wife must be able to teach and preach the word in her unique way. The five fold ministry was established for the perfecting of the saints to do the work of the ministry. Look out for the area in your husband’s ministry where your gifts and talents are needed and start using them.

4. DEVELOP STRONG LEADERSHIP SKILLS: It is a great privilege for your husband to have you in his life and ministry and likewise a privilege for you to be connected with him and his ministry. You and your husband must not take the privilege of being partners in the Lord’s vineyard for granted. Every privilege comes with responsibilities. As a minister’s wife, you have the responsibility of being a great blessing to him and his ministry and one of the ways of doing that is to develop leadership skills. The development of your leadership skills will help you draw the best out of other people and inspire them to maximise their potential. Everyone has the capacity for leadership but the capacity must be developed. 

5. PROTECT YOUR HOME. Your home is not an extension of the church and you have the responsibility of protecting your home. Set the atmosphere permissible in your home. Not everyone who knocks the door of your church is trustworthy.Your first responsibility is to minister to your husband, as a helpmeet not as an associate pastor and your second responsibility is that of a mother to your children

6. PERSONALITY OF THE MINISTER'S WIFE: Personality is the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual's distinctive character. The life of the ministry and that of the family is the backbone of the ministry. The minister and his family must constantly work on their personality to sustain what God has put in their hands. When you neglect your person, the ministry suffers. You must be approachable, friendly, not easily provoked but firm.Work on who you are and become a motivator and an inspiration to many.You cannot be a successful minister's wife if you are insecure and have inferiority complex. If you are insecure, bitter, bad mannered, you will destroy your husband's ministry.

7. DEDICATION OF THE YOUNG MINISTER'S WIFE:Dedication is the quality of being committed to a task, purpose, someone or giving yourself and services completely to a cause. The young minister's wife cannot go far and be successful without being dedicated.Your priority as a minister's wife is to be dedicated to God, your calling and your husband.When you are completely sold out to God, your calling and your husband, success in life and ministry becomes automatic.
...but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Daniel 11:32

7 WINNING ATTITUDES THAT MULTIPLY SUCCESS IN THE MINISTRY

STICKING TO GOD AND YOUR CALLING: Your ultimate aim in ministry must be to please the one who has called you. Keeping to your source will multiply your success in life and ministry. Make God your only alternative in your life and ministry. Stick to your calling. Stay in the office where you have been called. Do not cross to someone's lane.Never despise your calling. Are you called to teach? do it with excellence.
  
THE POWER OF DILIGENCE: The work of the ministry is not for lazy people. No lazy minister has a future.Success in ministry is recorded on diligent pursuit.The hand of the diligent will rule while the lazy person will be put to forced labor.The diligent shall be promoted and noticed by great achievers. Don't watch movies until ten o'clock each morning and expect to experience enviable success in life and ministry.

RECOGNITION OF THE GRACE OF GOD ON OTHERS: Every one called into ministry carries an anointing. The grace on each one of us is different but the same source. Recognize what God has put on other people and position yourself to be blessed by what you don't have. Whatever God has not given you is placed in someone close to you.


GODLY ASSOCIATIONS: To succeed in ministry, you will need godly associations.You don't need everyone to succeed but you need someone to succeed. Godly associations are vital and crucial for success in ministry. Godly associations are supposed to result in progress whereas a wrong association is dangerous and detrimental to success in life and ministry. Choose your associations wisely.


THE SCHOOL OF PATIENCE & FAITHFULNESS: Your ministry has a divinely appointed time to take-off and has different phases. Your ability to discern times and phases of your ministry will determine success in ministry. Lack of patience in the pursuit of your ministry may jeopardize your life. Go for an understanding of God's time table for every phase in your ministry. Understand that reports of others' successes and breakthroughs can make you impatience in the pursuit of your ministry. Pursue your calling with patience and faithfulness.

GENUINE LOVE FOR PEOPLE: Genuine love for people will ultimately multiply your success in life and ministry. Your ability to feel the hurt of people will cause you to succeed in ministry.


  MINISTERIAL ACCOUNTABILITY: Accountability will determine how far you go in life and ministry. Who can rebuke you when you are wrong? Who do you submit to? Ministerial accountability will help put your life in check because there are human agents who God has placed over your life who can correct you when you go wrong.
Prophet Bernard Elbernard Nelson-Eshun.

I SHALL PROPHESY


Man’s wisdom cannot be compared to God’s wisdom. Anything that comes out of the natural suffers natural limitations. Prophesying is an idea of God. It is where your tongue receives  divine enabling power.
  
Joel 2:28
 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

God desires that we become a channel through which other people shall receive the word of God. Prophecy is stronger than education ,background,experience and your exposure. Prophecy carries the breath of God. When God speaks ,men listen. Any man who prophesies is operating in the supernatural, because prophecy does not have it source from the natural.
1.Fore telling-Telling ahead of time things in the mind of Christ concerning individuals,nations and places
2.Forth telling –Speaking forth what is in the mind of God.
The gift of prophecy is not for predicting the future.it is limited to exhortation,comfort and edification.I am also a candidate to speak for God and to declare the mind of God. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is the doorway to the prophetic realm.

Numbers 11:29
 And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the Lord'S people were prophets, and that the Lord would put his spirit upon them!
The prophetic ministry is a lifestyle.

WHAT MUST YOU DO TO PROPHESY
Walk in Love
Your love for God and for people. Love will not envy,be jealous or be offended. The bigness of your heart for people and for God will determine the level of the prophetic you can operate in.

Earnestly desire to prophesy
  Your desire must be desperate .The proof of desire is pursuit. The price you pay will determine the depth you will enter. Empty yourself of who you are. Have a desperate desire. Prophesying is a risk. So , prophesy according to the proportion of your faith. But set your heart on prophesying.


Go For Knowledge

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Jeremiah 3:15
 I will give you leaders who will be faithful to me. They will lead you with knowledge and insight.

Grow Your Faith
You must grow your faith in order to flow in the prophetic. Without faith you cannot speak for God.Be foolish enough to say what God is showing you.
Romans 12:6
 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;

12 PROPHETIC LESSONS I HAVE LEARNT


If God wants to teach you a lesson, God will not use evil.God is too good to use evil to teach you a lessons.God only release good and perfect gift. Any time things defies the natural and attract national attention, it needs a prophetic response. Prophets carry the word of God. The prophetic word is the unfolding of God’s report. Every man has his own report. God too has His own report. Prophecy has divine ability to unlock the truth and mystery in the mind of God.
The thoughts of God are higher than the thoughts of men. There is something in the mind of God, but not everyone can unlock what is in the mind of God. The prophet romances divinity and have spiritual intercourse with God. Learn to recognize men and women who carry what you don’t carry. Your fruit will be determined by your root. Your source determine your result.

Lesson 1-Absolute Dependence on The Holy Spirit
Locating your strength in the Holy Spirit ,but not in the arm of flesh. Not depending on intellectual capacity. Your ability to depend on the Holy Spirit is very important. Have a strong relationship with the Holy Spirit
John 16:13
 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. For he will not speak on his own authority, but will speak whatever he hears, and will tell you what is to come.

Lesson 2 –Operating In The Prophetic Is Progressive
A baby of two months must not try to do what a baby of two years is doing. Your level determines what you will enjoy. Allow the spirit to operate progressively. It takes time. everything has a platform for manifestation.

Lesson 3-Right Environment ,Right People
People who believe in the prophetic listens to messages and read a lot of books. If you want to acquire a degree , you don’t go to basic school,you go to the university. That is the environment for acquiring a degree.

Lesson 4-Not Everyone Will Accept The Prophetic Ministry
It is not everybody who will accept the prophetic ministry . so you must be ready to be rejected and criticized. Jesus entered a city and was not accepted by some people. You are not better than Jesus,so it is not everyone who will accept you as a prophet.

Lesson 5- Walking In The Prophetic Is Not Enough
Walking in the prophetic alone is not enough. Go for wisdom,knowledge and ethics. You need to learn how to relate,teach and dress. You need to grow. Prophesying must edify the church. We preach God’s word by revelation,instruction, and by where we want to get to.

Lesson 6-You Need Prophetic Accountability
You cannot be right all the time. Anything that is not under authority cannot have authority.  You need to be under an authority. You need to be accountable to someone higher than you. You must not be a freelancer.

Lesson 7-The Prophetic Anointing Advertises Itself

Lesson 8-When The Prophetic And Music Marries, The Prophet Enters Into Another Level

Lesson 9-Anybody Can Operate in The Prophetic

Lesson 10-Never Be Familiar With The Prophetic

Lesson 11- You Will Be Misunderstood By Many.Others Will Judge You Wrongly

Lesson 12-The Love Dimension Enhances The Flow Of The Prophetic
Greater love equals to greater impact. You need to have a great dimension of love for God and people in order for God to make a lot of things naked to you.

MY THOUGHTS ON MINISTRY


The world is looking for people who has the answers to the questions of life. When you walk around, you would realize  that everything is asking you questions. God has given us the power to provide the answers. When God gives a man a ministry ,God also gives the pattern of the ministry.

Demonstration of The Love Of God
Ministry is about the demonstration of the love of God. Love to yourselves and love to your neighbor. Asking yourself what Jesus would have done in every situation. You can be anointed and gifted but if you don’t genuinely care about the people God has given you,you cannot serve God.

Think More About Longevity Than Speed
In ministry, think more about longevity than speed.Be very careful of your manners. The position of a pastor is a position of trust and integrity. Do not have an attitude that shows that you are an ingrate. If you want to go far build strong relationship with God.

Be Simple But Create A Level Of Mystery About Yourself
In ministry , you have to be simple but create a certain level of mystery and uniqueness about yourself and what you do. Whatever that is often seen is always despised. People get familiar with what is common and usual. Every object of mystery attracts human curiosity.  When something valuable comes so cheap suspect it. Don’t give to people who don’t value what you carry

Ministry Is A Divine Assignment
Ministry is not a natural assignment but a divine assignment. You cannot use the tools of the mechanic at the hospital. You cannot carry out ministry in the energy of the flesh.
Without unction,your Christian life is nothing. Never judge the unction on a man of God by the grammar he speaks,or his height or colour. 
 Acts 10:38  
  ''..how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

The unction is the difference maker. An anointing on a man of God will affect you depending on the value you place on it. There is nothing like the anointing.

Take The  Work Of God  Serious
You cannot have outstanding success in ministry when you approach the work of God with a casual approach. Nothing works on itself. Everything that is working is made to work. Someone must work it. The seriousness with which you approach ministry will determine the results you will receive. Nothing is free. Anybody who has become what he/she is today,is because that person has paid the price.

Dedication,Commitment And Faithfulness
Ministry is about dedication, commitment and faithfulness.

Helping People Get To Heaven
Ministry is about helping people get to heaven. The main vision and target of any ministry is to win souls for the kingdom of God. So any ministration that does not win souls for God is not of God.

The Right People
One of the greatest resources God can give any ministry is the right people. Your level of success is determined by the people around you. Wrong people will delay you. They will take you to prison. Jesus Christ took 12 right people to begin His ministry. Right people are people who will treasure your words even in your absence. Pretenders are people who cannot value your words. Even your wife or husband can determine how people value your words.


WHAT TO DO TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE GOD GIVES YOU IN MINISTRY
1.Empower them Through Training-indoctrinate them and help them to grow and be better people. Don’t grow and leave them behind. Don’t grow as your wife or husband is not growing
2.Protect Their Focus From Evil Voices- Every statement is intended to accomplish a set objective. So be concern about the voices they listen to. Apart from God’s voice , your voice must be key to them.
3.Give Them A Future- Give them a future and let them buy into the vision God has given to you.Show trust in them, rebuke them,correct and embrace them. Let them make your vision their vision.
4.The Voice Of The Holy Spirit-Teach them how to make the voice of the Holy Spirit the strongest voice in their lives. Everything must settle down to what the scripture is saying . The Holy Spirit can never lead you astray , so His voice must be the strongest voice. It is dangerous to marry a man or woman who is not listening to the voice you are listening to.
5.Teach Them How To Recognize Your Voice- Teach them how to make your voice the strongest in their lives. Look out for people who are quick to carry out your words, not those who are quick to explain your words. A man who respects you is a man who respects your words,put them into action,and personalize your words. Sons carry out the instructions of their father

GETTING PERSONAL WITH GOD

Our establishment as believers lies in having a personal relationship with God. If you want to be established, then you need to have a personal relationship with God. The reason why many people sit under this great covering but nothing covers their lives, businesses and marriages is that their personal or individual relationships with God is weak. I want to encourage you to develop a personal relationship with God. Personally I don’t need any one to motivate me to serve God and serve Him well, neither do I need any one to encourage me to win souls nor any one to motivate me to come to church.

Desire A Closer Relationship With God
You need to have a genuine desire to know God more. It is good when someone talks to you about your father but there is another level of relationship when you know your father by yourself. Every father wants to communicate with the children personally. In like manner, God want to communicate with us on a personal level. You need to yearn for that personal relationship with God. The kind of relationship where your private confessions and behaviors are not different from what you put out in public.
The depth of your relationship with God determines the level of communication He will have with you. Sometimes it is possible that God could be speaking to us, but we wouldn’t hear Him because we do not have that kind of relationship to understand or identify what He is communicating to us. You can only know someone’s voice when you relate and become close to the person over time. For some ,they are not matured enough to comprehend what God is saying. When someone is not matured, the person cannot handle certain levels of communication. The same way God can only speak deep things to us when we mature. It is your level of maturity that determines what God will speak to you about.

21 TYPES OF DANGEROUS CHURCH MEMBERS

In the kingdom of God many things will be entrusted to us by God. But if we cannot be trusted or counted faithful, we may lose the opportunity to do many things for God. God is not looking for talented and gifted people. It is your availability and commitment that will cause God to entrust great things into your hands. People or church members who cannot be trusted with little things will never be given great things . If God cannot trust you with little anointing ,then don’t expect great anointing. Many people cannot be trusted with true riches because they are not faithful with the unrighteous mammon. For you to handle great things in the kingdom of God,you must prepare your mind,heart,and body to a certain level of trustworthiness in order to handle it. My desire as a pastor is to see my church members live a higher standard of life; holy, excellent and loyal to the course of the kingdom of God. I want to pastor people who are so passionate about the things of God and ready to die for the course of God and the vision of the church. I want to see my church members preach and prophesy like I do. I want to see people who are financial and prayer bulldozers. I want to see church members who are doing well both spiritually and physically. But it all depends on our loyalty and commitment to the things of the house of God. People who are not loyal and committed in the things of God are dangerous personalities in the house of God. They are liabilities in the kingdom not assets. There are many characteristics of church members in the house of God which make them effectively dangerous in the kingdom. 


Mr. No Interaction (John 10;12-13)
This is someone who doesn’t stay around to interact with other church members after service or church activities.  They are the type of church members who are not willing to marry from the church. They are not in any department and even when they join a department they don’t interact with people from other department. Even as husband and wife you need to interact with each other for your marriage to do well. We want to see people in the church who interact with each other and try to know the problem of others and share in their concern. The simplest way to interact with people is to ask for their name, where they live, their occupation or where they are schooling and their marital status. You can then go further and exchange contacts.

Mr. and Mrs. Late Comers (John 20;24)
At any point in time in every service, there are Angels released to carry out specific assignments. When the service start with prayers, there are certain Angels released to carry the prayer of the saints to heaven. There are different Angels who are released  during praise and worship, likewise during the preaching. These Angels are released for different blessings; they come to bless the people of God but if you miss some part of the service you miss your blessings. These late comers think that some part of the service are not important. The reason why  believers are serving God yet they are struggling in their lives is because of their attitude in the house of God. Late comers are people who struggle in multiple areas of their lives. They only hear news. They don’t partake of the news.

Mr. Just Arrived (Matthew 2;14)
 This is someone who has just joined the church. It is time that can prove their commitment; they can only be trusted over time. It is time that can reveal many things about us and our character .it is in difficult time that our loyalty can be proven. A novice’s commitment can only be proven with time. 1Timothy 3;6

Mr. Not There Yet
These are the type of church members who are not ready to be birthed into the vision, custom, culture and philosophy of the church. Every church has its way of doing things. In SPIRITLIFE, we believe in giving our best to God. We believe in honoring men of God and fathers in ministry. We believe in dressing well, dancing new dances and singing new songs that glorify God. We are different from other churches. Therefore we expect you to adopt the procedure of the house.

Mrs. Slander(1Timothy3;7)
“Even so [must their] wives (be) grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things “
These are the gossips in the church. They receive every evil news and spread it around.

Mrs. Take It Easy
 These are the type of church members who are not ready to do anything they themselves have not planned to do. They are allergic to changes and introduction of new things. They are always stuck to the old format or old ways of doing things. They say things like “this is how we have been doing it”. I am not ready for anything new. But one thing we must know is that changes in life are inevitable.

Mr. Evil Approver (2samuel 13;1-5)
These are people who approve of evil things among the members.  They know people in the church who are fornicating and proposing to many ladies but they will never report them to the pastor. They know of people who are committing abortion and adultery but will never report them to the pastor. These people condone sinful acts. “ And Jonadab said unto him,lay the thou on thy bed,and make thyself seek;and when thy father come to see thee,say unto him, I pray thee,let my sister Tamar come,and give me meat,and dress the meat in my sight,that I may see[it],and eat [it] at her hand. 2 Samuel 13;5”
Jonadab approved of Annon’s evil intention to rape his half-sister Tamar. Like many church members they support evil in the church and encourage people to rebel against leadership. They say things like” the way the pastor was looking at your direction when he was preaching, he was preaching against you.”” Why would he want to disgrace you in public?” 
Our loyalty to our assignment is one of the basis on which we will be rewarded in heaven. Be loyal and remain faithful

Mr. & Mrs. Armed Robbers
These are church members who do not pay tithe, they rob God.” Will a man rob God?, Yet  ye have robbed me.But ye say wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings “ Malachi 3:8

Unfaithful Personality
 This is the church member who is not faithful in another man’s business. He or she goes to work late and leaves very early. He or she steals from the organization and from the employer. Such people manipulate figures in the office to illegally get money into their pocket. “ If ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s ,who shall give you that which is your own.?”Luke 16:12

Mr. Know it All
”…write: For these words are true and faithful” Revelations 21;5 “ I wrote unto the church  
This is a church member who does not take note when the pastor is preaching. He behaves as if he know everything

Mr. Zipped Mouth
This type of church member never response to the preaching . He never say Amen!! Hallelujah !!!or Praise the Lord!!! Whenever the man of God is preaching. When the mouth of the people is unzipped when they come to church , the church come alive.

Mr. Unknown Factor
Any new church member may be a dangerous and disloyal person until he is tried and tested.  “Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who have been with us the whole time the Lord Jesus was living among us, 22 beginning from John’s baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection.Acts 1;21-22. We must appoint people we know. We cannot appoint new people into leadership position. We can only appoint people who are tried and tested into leadership position.
Mr. Promise Breaker
This is a church member who does not keep his promise. if you stand before the congregation and vow to your wife or husband  you must endeavor to keep your vows. If you don’t keep your marriage vow you are a very dangerous person in the church. Be careful of people who break their relationships. They are people who pledge in church and never pay

Mr. Irritated
These are people who get irritated any time you correct them. “ Better[is] a poor and wise child  than an old and foolish king,who will no more be admonished “ Ecclesiastes  4:13

Mr. Big Shot
 This is a position conscious person ;he want reserved seat and special chair in the church. He doesn’t want to do anything for God and never desires to serve in any department and can also not be sent. Such a member hold himself in high esteem but has nothing to boast of. Such  a member has a big mouth but a small heart. He talks big but acts small. Mark such people and avoid them.

Mr. No Training
These are people who don’t want to be trained  or retrianed . they don’t come for conferences  or attend any training  programmes organized by the church.

Wounded People
These are people who have not recovered from their hurts. Their pastors,church members  an friends have hurt them and they have never recovered from their wounds. They say things like  “as for these people that’s how they are”; “who does he think he is?” “we have married before” be careful as you want to marry. Your situation of divore cannot change the marriage stethoscope.  Marriage is very good. The fact that you have had an unsuccessful marriage does not mean marriage is not good. Ask god to heal your wounds so that you can use your experience to help others.

Attackers of fathers
Be careful of people who attack their fathers. If you are a mother never destroy our husband before your children. Even if your husband is irresponsible never turn your children against him. As a child do your part to honor your father even if he is irresponsible.

Mr. Demas
This is a church member who is worldly. He love worldly things , he sings worldly songs. He or she is in a relationship with an unbeliever and unbelievers are his role model.

A Gift From Demas
One day one of my church members gave me a hand set as a gift. As I scrolled through the phone you wouldn’t believe what I saw, pornographic pictures and videos. I was surprised because this was someone I knew to be very spiritual, unknown to me, he was a Demas in disguise. Another time someone gave me a laptop, when I tried playing some of the songs on the laptop I realized they were all worldly. Demas has all the latest worldly songs and movies on his device but he doesn’t have his pastor’s messages and videos on his device.

Mr. M.F.W
 This is someone who has moral and financial weakness.

Mr. Season of Crisis
This is a church member who leaves the church in times of crisis. Whenever they hear any scandal about their church or the pastor they will be the first to leave. They are shallow and unpredictable people. These church members will never analyze any issue before taking a stand.  They don’t have an investigative mentality.
