Pastor Sharon: Timely message: “Pastor Christi received tremendous revelation knowledge from the Lord. This message is so timely by God for this time, on the timeline, that actually anybody from Heritage of Faith that doesn’t hear this message, is going to miss such a huge big building block of our journey that we’re on together with Pastor John. This is Heritage of Faith journey”.
Pastor Christi: Hearing and understanding: My ears hear, and there is a great understanding in my heart and I go to a higher level of understanding as I hear these words. No other words will build me personally and build my life, I only received the messages coming from my spiritual father, Pastor John, because I’m planted in this Church – every revelation, understanding, direction comes from every message that I receive from Pastor John, and I thank You for that. I hear.
Making me whole: Like the one leper that came back to say, ‘Thank you, Jesus’, he didn’t only healing, but he was made whole. Where there is a tremendous loss of productivity in my life, I am not only healed from the effects of those in my future, I am also healed now of all the effects of the past. Like Pastor John, I personally believe that God is reconstructing certain things in my physical body. This is what the message does, with this word, the Holy Spirit reaches into my life. He is not just doing one thing, He is doing multiple things of restoration and redemption. This is God helping me – the word – in the message, that God gives to Pastor John for us, everything is in there. God is reconstructing my life and He is making it new. I am healed from past failures and any past fears. I only turn around and say, “Thank you” because you are making me whole now. I’ve got the message, I’ve got the Word and God’s Word has the power in itself to bring it to past. So, I’m rejoicing. “I want to heal and I want to make whole – the people of Heritage now – if they will believe My message.” When I put my foot right in the message, I have the answer, You knew I would be at this point, at this time and here’s Your Word for me, You’re making me whole. That is for all of us here.
De-materialising: You are making everything in my life new because I’m in the message and in Your Word, things are de-materialising the moment it comes to me, the moment I see it, it’s happening. It’s de-materialising for good. I must always understand and see the current level of my deception – that is always when I do not see the way God sees.
Function of God’s pattern: (John 18:12); (Matthew 10:40 NKJV), Jesus says, “If you want to follow Me, you must listen to the representative that I’m sending you. If you’re not listening to him, you will walk in darkness.” If I’m following Jesus, then I must understand His pattern in the New Testament of Ephesians 4:11 where He gave gifts. The function of God’s pattern is very important in my life. I do not have the anointing on my life to lead myself into the Promised Land. That’s why when God planted me, He gave me Pastor John – a vessel, an instrument, handpicked by God. There is an anointing especially on him to lead, direct and bring all the detail to us in this church, Ephesians 1:18 My eyes see clearly what God has called me to in this assignment and how it works and according to Hebrews 9:19, I now boldly enter into the holiest because Jesus made this fresh, new, living way for a living relationship.
Correction – The pattern in the Bible for us in the New Testament is, I do not say, “I am in the Word.” I say now, “I’m in the message and I receive the message from the messenger.”
Pattern in the New Testament: This pattern is so clear in the New Testament:
1 Thessalonians 1:6 AMP – “welcomed our message”. Pastor John is God’s representative. If I follow Jesus, I understand Jesus gives gifts and that’s why Jesus is here with us, because He is here with His representative and the message His representative must give to the Church; 2 Timothy 4:15 AMP – “resisted our message”; James 1:22 AMP – “obey the message”; 1 Thessalonians 2:13 AMP – “the message of God is the Word of God”. “If you want to follow Jesus, and you do not listen to the messages that come from His representative, know that in your life, in your marriage, in your business, your children, you will walk in darkness”.
Put your foot in the message: I put my foot right in the message. When satan comes for me, I say, “No, you don’t! Every moment for my future is in the message from Pastor John to me. This is our day of deliverance. We are in it. When Pastor John brings the message to us, I have the Word. This is what saves my life because I’m planted in Heritage of Faith. I received the messages not from Pastor John as just a mere man, but truly the Word of God. Pastor John brings this message, when I pray it, it’s very specific for my life. All the messages that come, all the moments for my future has all the answers. Acts 11:14 says, He will give and explain to you a message by means of which you and your whole household will be saved. I qualify for that. All the messages Pastor John and Pastor Sharon comes to bring saves my household.
Tabernacle of Korah & Rightly divide the Word of truth: When I come to God with my words and the things that I got for my own life, I’m actually doing what Korah did. Numbers 16:1- 3, 23, 24, 28, 32, 33. I rightly divide the word of truth, 2 Timothy 2:15. The Bible school is for muscle building, it is not the message that God is directing and taking me in my call, in the assignment around Pastor John into the promised land. Bible school does not replace the message and that is not where I abide in the Lord.
Spiritual surges: All of the spiritual surges (the mission team is going, now the Chariots of Light is starting, worship CD, get ready Dr Jerry is coming…) Pastor John receives from the Lord are there to train and mould me. There will be specific spiritual directions that I cannot go the other way. I cannot decide, “I will not be part of…” – I cannot! Otherwise, I will not end up like Joshua and Caleb, developed to grow in the place that I’ve got to take one day. When I’m in this flow of the Holy Spirit, given to me through the messages and spiritual surges then I grow.
Wisdom: Sometimes in my life, the wisdom is purely only coming to ask You to help me. If I’ve got myself somewhere in a ditch, I clearly don’t see the way I have to see, I find myself right there with You, I stay with the Holy Spirit in these messages. The wisdom is to put my foot in the message and to ask You to help me. That if I’ve walked somewhere in darkness that first of all You will show me, and that You are the One that will just get me back to ‘true north’ and stabilize me there, purge myself, show me what’s going on, but only Your help can do it
