IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO BE WITH GOD THAN TO GO FOR GOD
THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF FAITH IS REALIZABLE FROM THE REVELATION OF GOD!
TO KNOW HIM IS TO BELIEVE HIM! DOUBT IS A PRODUCT OF IGNORANCE OF WHO GOD IS!
THE LIMIT OF YOUR EXPERIENCE IS THE LIMIT OF YOUR FOLLOWERSHIP’S EXPERIENCE!
A MESSENGER WITHOUT A CLEAR MESSAGE THAT TURNS IT INTO A MESS!
THERE ARE MANY WHO CLAIMED THAT GOD SENT THEM, AND GOD SAID, “WHEN!”
IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO TO THE SEMINARY AND TO HAVE A BIBLE SCHOOL CERTIFICATE WITHOUT EXPERIENCING GOD!
THERE ARE MANY WHO CLAIM THAT THEY HAVE BEEN SENT ‘BY’ GOD BUT THE WORLD IS IN SHORTAGE OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN SENT ‘FROM’ GOD.
WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT FILL OUR PULPIT, ADVISING PEOPLE ABOUT WHAT THEY FEEL THAT THEY SHOULD DO, BUT THEIR PRACTICAL EVIDENCE WITH GOD IS ZERO!
– Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche on “THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD: KEY TO REVIVAL” at the North America Revival Fire Conference 2022 || Day 2 Evening Session || PART B
There are many who claim that they have been sent ‘by’ God but the world is in shortage of people who have been sent ‘from’ God. Where are you coming from? From God! Where do you live? God! God has not changed the process and it is consistent throughout Scriptures, even when Jesus was about to send His disciples in Mark 3:13-15.
He ordained twelve disciples that they should become Evangelists, is that what He said? That they should become Pastors, Prophets, Teachers or that they should roam about everywhere claiming that they have a Ministry? When it came to being with Him, ‘they should be…’, but when it came to going forth to preaching, ‘He might send them’.
Being with Him and going for Him, which one is more compulsory? – Being with Him! That they should be with Him, and after they have been with Him, He may make up His Mind to send them! And what is more important to Me is to ‘be with Me!’, and after you must have been with Me, if I want, I might send you!
There are many who have been struggling to be sent, who have not been with Him!
There are many who claimed that God sent them, and God said, “When!”
I prayed for the sick and the sick got healed, doesn’t it equal the sending?
Because in My Name you shall cast out devils but that doesn’t mean that I sent you. If somebody will go before God tonight and say, “God!
Here I am, I have been in a hurry like Isaiah!”
You know that in the year that King Uzziah died, Isaiah saw the Lord! High and lifted up, His train filled the Temple, he saw Cherubim of Glory- High and lifted up, crying with six wings with two they flew, with two they covered their feet and with the other two, they covered their faces and they were crying, “Holy!!! Is the Lord God Almighty!
The whole earth is filled with His Glory and the Pillars of the Temple shook at the sound of The Name. And he said “Woe!
It’s me, for I am undone, I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of people with unclean lips”.
Suddenly, an angel took a live coal and placed it on his lips and said, “Your sin is forgiven! Iniquity pardoned!” This is a guy who has been preaching in Chapter one, two, three, four and five. He had prophesied.
We are in Chapter six, then he hears the voice of the Lord, “Who shall we send? and who shall go for us!” And he said, “Here am I, send me!” You have been prophesying since Chapter one, and you are hearing The Call in Chapter six! You have been ministering since Chapter one, you have been telling everybody, “Woe!!!”
Until in Chapter six, you told yourself ‘Woe’!
After you saw Him! You know what happened to me when I saw that Scripture, that it is possible to be preaching and God is still looking for who to send! And you are the only person who is aware that God sent you because He is still looking for whom to send!
That happened practically to Isaiah! It’s a New Season!
I think that many of the Pastors in America particularly need to go before God and say, “Lord! I have been talking but did you really send me?” Because the level of confusion is so massive! A Messenger without a clear Message that turns it into a mess! You come today and you say, “This and that happened”, and you come tomorrow and you say, “I am sorry!
What I said yesterday was not correct!”
Then, next tomorrow, you say, “Let me correct myself, the first one was correct! What kind of inconsistent God are you serving? You heard a clear Message and it is changing like that all the time?
Finally, Paul the Apostle! In Galatians 1:15 and 16, we saw that He will first reveal
His son in me that I might preach Him among the heathen. I know that many of you are not preachers but God wants to reveal Himself to you and use you whether in business, politics or in any realm, to showcase you to your world. He wants to robe you with Himself. He wants to reveal Himself in your life, whether you are a student in the university or in the academic realm, God wants to reveal Himself to you and use you to reveal Himself to your world!
Let me round off this way, why is it necessary for God to reveal Himself to a person before revealing Himself through that person to their generation?
1.You cannot take anybody to the place where he doesn’t know! You cannot take people to a destination that you haven’t been to! You cannot show anyone what you haven’t seen! You can’t explain to people and be real!
You can’t explain what you have not really experienced!
How many of us here have read about a storm on the sea? How many of you have heard about a storm? Maybe somebody had an experience of the storm and you heard about it! Maybe you watched it from the sea shore! Now, how many of you have been inside the storm?
That is, a high sea, maybe in riverine areas or you were inside the storm!
Those four levels are different levels, the person who read about it can only talk about what he read, the person who heard about it can only talk about what he heard and the other person who saw it afar can only explain what he saw from afar. But the person, who stayed inside it, is the real person to listen to!
He will not just tell you of what he read, he will tell you what he experienced. That’s why the Apostles in John 1 said that that which we have heard, seen and handled with our hands, we are declaring unto you the Word of Life. God is not planning for us to gossip about Him, He is not planning for us to tell people about hear-say evidence! Lawyers know about ‘hear-say evidence’ and ‘real evidence’. Real evidence!
We have a lot of people that fill our pulpit, advising people about what they feel that they should do, but their practical evidence with God is zero! It is possible to go to the seminary and to have a Bible School certificate without experiencing God!
-Lord! I need an experience with you, reveal yourself to me and in me! So that I can reveal you to my world!
Before God would make Moses take Israel through the wilderness, he had been in the wilderness for forty years. He only takes people where they have been!
The limit of your experience is the limit of your followership’s experience! Very real!
2.It takes Faith to move God into action! Because without Faith, it is impossible to please God! The word, ‘Please’ is to move God! It takes Faith to move God into action! And the highest form of Faith arrives from the revelation of God!
There are people struggling from, ‘I don’t have Faith’!
The highest level of Faith is realizable from the revelation of God!
To know Him is to believe Him!
Doubt is a product of ignorance of who God is!
For him that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is a Rewarder of those that diligently seek Him!
If you have seen God and that you have experienced Him! You don’t doubt Him! God needs to reveal Himself to us! If you saw the burning bush like Moses saw and heard The Voice of God like Moses heard! You can face any Pharaoh!” Go not down into Egypt, remain in this land, I will bless you!
If you heard God like that, the way Isaac heard God, you will plant in dry seasons! And it will germinate! You will begin to make moves and take steps and people will be afraid for you! And wondering what is wrong with this man, and they will only be afraid because they haven’t seen what you have seen!
They don’t know what you know; they are not in touch with what you are in touch with! They don’t have your Light! I will talk about this tomorrow about what happens to a man who really knows God! But this is necessary!
God wants to do something that was why Paul cried! “That I may know Him and the Power of His Resurrection!
One day, I was in a dream in the revelation at night, and some wicked forces rushed at me in a fight with dangerous weapons and I was about to move against them like a lion! And I saw a man that said, “Give space!” And I stood by His side, and He moved His hands once and twice, every one of them with all their weapons were on the floor, flat! And I said, “Sir, who are you?” He said, “I am the angel that has been sent to fight your battles!
From that day till eternity, I am fully aware that anyone who came against me is on a suicide mission! He only came to die!
I have Scriptural and experiential revelation! – That He shall give His angel charge over me! We went into a country, and some criminals trailed us from the airport and when we entered into the traffic and the vehicle slowed down, he pulled out his gun towards where I was sitting and as he came towards the door, he just went back and went to the other side!
A vehicle coming from the other side, knocked one from the other side, we passed through the midst of them! Went our way! When we got to the nearby police station, and explained what we experienced, the said, “That kind of criminal activity has been going on for a while, and in fact they followed someone like that down to the hotel and shot him dead!” Whether that one person died, I can’t tell but we went through the midst of them and went our way!
-God will give you an experience in His Word and with Himself because He needs you to impact your world!
