7 UNCOMMON CHURCH MEMBERS WHO MULTIPLIED MY SUCCESS IN MINISTRY.


In the year 2006, I left Takoradi with Ghc 10 to start a journey into full time prophetic ministry.After two years of waiting on God and preparation, the church arm of the ministry was started on the 24th February 2008 at SunnyFM Prayer Cafe. For the first 3 years of the ministry my total membership was not up to 4 and our total Sunday attendance was 7 members. We operated as a church for 3 years without using any kind of instrument for our services because we did not have enough money to buy one.
Apart from the Help of the Holy Spirit, one of the greatest blessing God has given me is the people released into my life and my ministry. I am going to share with you 7 uncommon church members who have multiplied the rate of my success in life and ministry.

1. THE UNCOMMON CHURCH MEMBER WHO LOVES THE LORD.
This is the type of church member who is genuinely born again and desires to make it to heaven. This church member promotes Jesus Christ through personal witnessing and winning the lost to the Lord. He/ she is consistent at church and will never miss church service for any reason. This type of church member genuinely loves the Lord and has developed a personal relationship with the Lord. His love for God is demonstrated by his love for the WORD OF GOD, the kingdom and for people.

2. THE UNCOMMON ASSOCIATE PASTOR WHOSE MISSION IS TO HELP ME SUCCEED.
This type of church member grows from just being a member to a church worker and eventually a pastor. He is the type of pastor who loves the Lord and genuinely want the HEAD PASTOR succeed in his assignment. His mission and assignment is to help you succeed in that which God has sent you to pursue. He will never compete with you but uses his gifts, talents and anointing to compliment you. His interest is for you to have the peace of mind to be a blessing to the people of God.

3. THE UNCOMMON CHURCH MEMBER WHO IS A BELIEVER
This type of church member believes in the hand of God upon your life and ministry and genuinely want you to succeed. He/she uses his/her ability to be supportive and motivate others to be more committed to the Lord, you and the ministry.He/she shows support in the form of encouragement and helps you to be in the right track. He uses whatever platform to promote the ministry. He uses social media platforms to promote whatever the Lord is doing with you and through you.
You will always need the right people to make full proof of your ministry. To the many who have been used to be a blessing to me and my ministry, I say 'be blessed and be lifted. I pray for you that you will encounter the right people who will cause you to multiply in whatever assignment you are sent t undertake.

6 DIMENSIONS OF SOLVING PROBLEMS


Every person's greatness is hidden in his ability to turn problems into solutions. When you stand in the school of answers, men will pursue you with their questions. When I was operating in the restaurant of question no one pursued my wisdom.Our world is thirsty for men and women who have the answers to the questions of life. One of the easiest way to command the attention of men is to have the ability to solve their problems. There are 6 dimensions to solving problem i want to share with you today.

1.SOLVING THE RIGHT PROBLEM AT THE WRONG TIME & AT THE WRONG PLACE
The first dimension is solving the right problems at the wrong time. Our success in life is connected to discerning the times and the season.Every problem solved has a reward. If you solve the right problem at the wrong time, you will not be rewarded. On the other hand if you solve the right problem at the wrong place you won't be rewarded.

2. SOLVING THE RIGHT PROBLEM FOR THE WRONG PEOPLE.
The second dimension of solving problems is solving the right problem for the wrong people. When you solve the right problem for the wrong people, they will not even appreciate what you have and what you have done for them. They will look down with contempt of the solution you have given them.

3. SOLVING THE RIGHT PROBLEM AT THE RIGHT TIME FOR THE RIGHT PEOPLE
The third dimension of solving problems is solving the right problem at the right time, the right place and for the right people. When you solve problems at the right time, at the right place and for the right people there is always a reward but not all rewards will be immediate.Don't always look for immediate rewards because you can easily lose the ultimate as you fix your eyes on the immediate.

4. SOLVING YESTERDAY'S PROBLEM TODAY
The fourth dimension of problem solving is solving yesterday's problem today. In this dimension, you solve the problems you should have solved in the past. This is a waste of time, energy and resources but at times, it is important you solve yesterday's problem so that you can focus on the future.An example of solving yesterday's problem is an 82 year old man starting primary school. There is nothing wrong with that if he wants to correct the mistakes of the past,but you must always take full advantage of your season. You will understand as you move to the next point.

5. SOLVING TODAY'S PROBLEM TODAY
The fifth dimension of solving problems is solving today' s problems in the now. When you solve today's problem, it helps the next generation to focus their strength,energy, talents and resources to solve your problems and solve the problems of generations not yet born.When you do what you must do now, you will not need to solve yesterdays problem. If you must go to school and read your masters degree now and you don't go, you might need to go back and do it someday and that brings us to solving yesterdays problems today. My main focus is on the sixth dimension of solving problems.

6. SOLVING TOMORROW'S PROBLEM TODAY
The sixth dimension of solving problems is the most important of all problem solving. Great leaders always solve problems from this dimension. Our world will be a better place if we can solve problems from this dimension. This dimension interprets the issues of yesterday in the light of current situations so that we can predict the problems of the future and solve them. This makes us go beyond yesterday and today to think more about the future, but we can't solve tomorrow's problem if we are ignorant of yesterday and today's challenges. When Joseph was brought to the Pharoah Of Egypt, he took advantage of the current situations in the light of the past and predicted what must be done in the future.Read the story of Joseph in Genesis 41. Pharoah was so surprised that he said to his leaders 'Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is'? We need generational thinkers,generational planners, generational initiators and generational performers. All the dimensions of problem solving are good but the sixth dimension is the best. This is my opinion.

I pray for you today that may God cause you to operate from the sixth dimension of solving problems. Can you give me an amen?
Prophet Bernard Elbernard Nelson-Eshun.
(General Overseer, Spiritlife Revival Ministries)
