The mortal physical body of THE BELIEVER IN CHRIST is different from that of the unbeliever!
According to Lev 17.11, “...the life of the flesh is in the blood...” This is for the Adamic and unregenerated man. The unbeliever’s life is supplied and sustained by his BLOOD and in his BLOODline… Oftentimes, you find some Ministers teaching and praying about Ancestral, family and bloodline curses so much, until they come into this understanding! The body of the unregenerated man naturally inherits sickness, curses, disease and death!
But, if you read in Rom 8.11, the story is completely different:
“And if the Spirit of Him who raised JesusJESUS the dead lives in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit, who lives in you.”
So the body of the believer in Christ is different! Hallelujah! The body of the believer is sustained and maintained by the Spirit of God! It receives life and vitality from the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead! Thats why your body is called the Temple of the Holy Spirit! (1 Cor 6:19) The Spirit dwells there, He lives there, He functions there!(2Cor 6:16) Amongst what the Spirit does for the believer is vitalising your mortal body, physically! You derive your life and body functioning from the Spirit and not your blood! The believer has nothing to do with inherited curses and inherited traits and bloodline casualties! No, no, no! Thats not your prayer point, thats not your realm, thats not your life! When you got born again, you were translated into another kingdom, the Kingdom of Jesus, and in this kingdom, people live by the Spirit! (Col. 1:13) In this realm sir, its the Spirit that functions, not your blood! Stop saying things, ‘you are son of the soil’… which soil? You were born from above, how can you say with unbelievers you are son of the soil? Stop emphasising your nativity and tribe so much, that you forget that you are born of the Spirit and you function by the Spirit and your body is maintained by the Spirit! The bible says, if you live by the flesh, you will die!(Rom 8:13) Rather, understand this and begin to draw life and vitality from the Spirit for the activity and health of your body organs, body tissues and body systems… Keeping drawing life into your body on a daily basis. Live daily with a Spirit consciousness, pray in the Spirit often, make declarations of who you are in Christ and let the Revelation of Christ create a new thinking for your life!
Now, hear this: The power of the Spirit is so strong that it was the same Spirit that woke up Jesus from the dead that resides in you!! There is no situation in your body right now worse than death, so there is no situation in your body and life that the Spirit cannot remedy! Therefore, I activate the ministry of the Spirit into your body right now… begin to declare that no infirmity or inherited curses shall have access to your life in Jesus name!!
You are full of life by the Spirit!! Be blessed and have a SpiritFull Life!!

“… the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you now and always…” 2Cor. 13:14
Have you ever wondered why Paul actually attributed a different thing to each personality of the Godhead? Paul was particular about the message he intended to pass across…
God has love; He is the custodian of love; He is actually love personified. It is the knowledge of the love of the Father Himself that keeps us confident that no weapon formed against us will prosper; it is the confidence in the love of the Father that helps us walk through the fire and the storms with the assurance of safe passage.
Jesus has grace; He is the one that brought grace to us; it is because of the grace of Jesus speaking on our behalf that makes us walk tall knowing that God is in His anger will not destroy us.
But, Hallelujah! the Holy Spirit is the mixer! He is the one that interprets the love of the Father with the grace of Jesus and makes it relevant to you. Without the Holy Spirit, Nothing the Father does will have meaning, not even the message of grace that comes with the arrival of Jesus will be of any profit. The Holy Ghost is the Mixer!
Have you wondered why the Bible says “Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit” Eph 5:18
Beloved, if there is any thing to be drunk on, it should be the Holy Ghost because as you drink of the wine He mixes, you are actually having fellowship with the love of the Father and the grace of our Lord Jesus.
Spend time with the Holy Spirit today, it is not enough to just talk about Him, Spend time with Him because it is the understanding of who He is and what He does that will determine how He will find expression in you.
‘Therefore you are no longer outsiders (exiles, migrants, and aliens, excluded from the rights of citizens), but you now SHARE CITIZENSHIP WITH THE SAINTS (God’s own people, consecrated and set apart for Himself); and you belong to God’s [own] household. You are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus Himself the chief Cornerstone. IN HIM THE WHOLE STRUCTURE IS JOINED (BOUND, WELDED) TOGETHER HARMONIOUSLY, AND IT CONTINUES TO RISE (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred to the presence of the Lord]. IN HIM [AND IN FELLOWSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER] YOU YOURSELVES ALSO ARE BEING BUILT UP [INTO THIS STRUCTURE] WITH THE REST, TO FORM A FIXED ABODE (DWELLING PLACE) OF GOD IN (BY, THROUGH) THE SPIRIT.’ (Eph 2:19-22)
‘Show respect for all men [treat them honorably]. Love the brotherhood (the Christian fraternity of which Christ is the Head). Reverence God. Honor the emperor. 1 Peter 2:17 AMP … I give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another’ (John 13:34)
Christ is ONE, so are we, as THE BODY OF CHRIST! Whatever affects one affects all.

God has been busy building the church through all the past dynamic moves and experiences in the earth. We refer to this as the migration or journey of the church. Each new move brings with it new revelation and greater understanding of His ever revealing plan for the church. The key is never to become so accustomed to a particular move that we fail to move to the next level of our church experience. This journey of the church will end up at Zion (the perfected state of the church). The coming of the Lord will take place only when the church reached its ultimate destination.
The Present Day Move of God asserts that the end will only come when the corporate Son, the body of Jesus Christ, located in the earth has reached maturity or Son‐ship
A wind of change is therefore blowing in this season, bringing fresh insight into the mysteries and purposes of God to help us make the shift and to align us to heavenly patterns in building the house of God. Too much of the old stuff has ruined the church and the work of the ministry, because many have been ignorant of the new season and the new word that is being released in the earth today. It has always been the same old sugar-coated sermon dressed up in new fangled robes, yet still with the cry for “new things”. The message and ministry of the old order cannot produce the purposes of God for this new season, but the fact remains that we must recognize that which has been gained and accomplished in the old order and past move of God and move on to the ultimate goal of finishing the works of God in this new season. For this we need a clear revelation of the mysteries of God and His Kingdom purposes, as this is the only way we can build by heavenly pattern and establish the will of the Kingdom of God in the earth as it is in heaven.
This move is the move of the revelation of Jesus Christ…Christ is revealing Himself in His Church, so that the Church can express Christ in His fullness, so that His enemies on earth can fully surrender completely! In this move, we will see the restoration of the Acts model for the church. God is doing this to prepare the Bride of Christ to conclude the church age more gloriously than the first century saints brought in the church age .at Pentecost! The Body of Christ must ALSO necessarily become the Bride of Christ before He returns.
HERE COMES THE MUCH AWAITED APOSTOLIC MOVE… THE LAST MOVE OF GOD ON EARTH….
Africa, has a special role to play in the unfolding of God’s end time agenda of revival. In fact, there have been long standing prophecies concerning the global revival of the apostolic ministry in the last days in the continent of Africa, with Nigeria being in the lead.
For instance, in the early 1970s, an American female evangelist prophesied that Africa will be the arrowhead of the Gospel in the end time. Because of their respect for her owing to the accuracy of her prophecies, the whites became very nervous that they, and not the blacks, would have this divine honour of playing such a vital role in the last day revival.
About a decade earlier, specifically in the morning of July 25th, 1961 at Winnipeg, Canada, another revelation in this direction had been given to American preacher Tommy Hicks. Hicks, a major figure in the powerful 1954 Argentina Revival, had a relatively long revelation about the last days relating to the global revival of the apostolic. Here, God had revealed the role of Africa in the end time plan of God. Hicks mentioned that:
“…suddenly there was a man in Africa, and in a moment he was transported in the Spirit of God, and perhaps he was in Russia, or China, or America, or some other place…, I never saw a church, and I never saw or heard a denomination; but these people were going in the Name of the Lord of hosts. Hallelujah!…” Culled from C. & F. Hunter, ‘To Heal the Sick.’
HAVING IN Mind, Tommy hick’s Testimony in 1961, and to CONFIRM, that the Endtime Move of God has anchored in Africa… consider the following testimonies..
This Vision/Testimony was sent in by a Minister from Abuja, Nigeria…
“In 1982, my apostle, who went to be with the Lord in 2007, was given a revelation by God. In that revelation God showed him that there was going to be a third covenant, the first having taken place during the time of Abraham, and the second during the time of Noah. My apostle narrated the revelation to me, spelling out clearly what God had asked us both to do. I was to accompany him on the assignment to Rome. This third covenant would have to do with an end-time revival before the Second Coming of Christ. This revival would be a time when God will impart the local churches before Christ returns. God specifically made it clear that this revival will have its global epicenter in Nigeria, and then charged us to go see the Pope in Rome to deliver the message to him for onward delivery to the whole world. The charge from God also included us taking the message to Jerusalem and, on returning to Nigeria, to pass it to the then ten northern states of the country. “The same year, 1982, we left for Rome and on arrival, went right away to see the Pope. However, because of some protocol we couldn’t see him because we were told he was preparing to leave for a visit to Lisbon that day. We however, left a letter containing the message to be given to him on his return, but we never heard from him until his death. Whether or not the letter was given to him is what we couldn’t tell. “We then proceeded to Jerusalem where we were received warmly. The Lord had prepared men to cater for our well-being. The most interesting part of it all was that the people received the message with great interest and zealously identified with it. In fact, after our departure some of them wanted to come over to Nigeria but due to certain factors we couldn’t process their visit. Back home we embarked on the third stage of the journey, which, was to disseminate the message in the then ten northern states of Nigeria. Contrary to the reception we had experienced in Jerusalem, we were highly resented here at home because many people considered us a bunch of heretics who were out to propagate a strange doctrine. We did the best we could, talking with whoever cared to listen. After this, there was not much we could do. Our assignment, which was to deliver the message, was over, and God did not ask us to do more than this. Little did I know that 30 years later, specifically in July 2012, God was going to connect me with the reality of this third covenant and end time revival. This is how it happened: I was invited to a conference in Bwari, Abuja, where Dr. David Abraham was to speak. Somehow, and very unusual, I honoured the invitation. When he began to speak something unusual happened. I felt flames of fire envelop me from my feet to up to my head and there and then the message of 1982 that we had gone to pass to the Pope, to the people in Jerusalem, and to the ten northern states in Nigeria came back to me in crystal reality. It was very clear that this was what God spoke about in 1982. Since that encounter I have come to understand that the third covenant God was talking about had to do with this revival spearheaded by The Holy Nation through Dr. Abraham. Ever since I joined this revival and move of God I have watched God reveal deeper things to me I cannot share here. …and this is just the beginning. I earnestly invite you to join this chariot!!”
This Vision/Testimony was sent in by a Minister from Makurdi, Nigeria…
In a very captivating revelation that sends shock waves down my spine each time I remember it, Dr Abraham came to us in a rather unusual moment. He did not come down but was suspended midway in the air. There was pandemonium everywhere and the shouts of “Rapture!” “Rapture!” filled the air. But instead of being worried, he was beckoning at people to come to him. I was yelling, telling him the rapture had taken place. He could hear me loud and clear, and so kept telling it was not the rapture, only the gathering together of God’s people before the rapture. Terrified and panting, I told him it was really the rapture that had taken place, pointing at the stampede that was going on around us. Few of us from the school (Christ Institute) were there. At this juncture he came much lower than he earlier was, but still his feet did not touch the ground. Then to prove the point to me, he asked me to draw closer. As I did, he asked me to open my mouth. I did and he insisted I opened it wider. He then lifted his thumb and touched my tongue. Immediately there was a drop of liquid on it. The honey-like sweetness of the liquid filled my mouth and then he asked me to go. I watched people still running up and down in fear and confusion but I was now calm. At this point that he told me to go, he also told me with calmness on his face that since that liquid had touched my tongue, the rapture could now take place. I left the place boldly and was now telling others to run towards him.
God is speaking unambiguously to all that would care to listen that the Holy Nation Apostolic Outreach, which is ushering God’s final revival on earth, starting from here in Nigeria, is being used by God to round up events that would prepare people and usher in the rapture. We must take God seriously this time around!!
This Vision/Testimony was sent in by a Minister from Ibadan, Nigeria…
In a vision in the night I saw a great command of army assembled in both vertical and horizontal line. The leader (in person of Dr. David G. Abraham) was receiving order from a great commander whose image was invisible, though as invisible as He seems, His presence was felt and His Voice mighty but could only be interpreted by the one standing (Dr. David). As soon as he received the order, he carefully passes it to the other soldiers whose number was innumerable. In the hand of the invisible image was a pillar, on the top end of the pillar was the map of the world.. the globe rolling and glittering on the spot showing each continent at a glance. Then the invisible great Commander-in-Chief was visible only to the receiver of His order, who at the same time and equivalent speed gave the order to those Generals that were standing behind him. The number of those army generals were about twenty four of different tribes but of the same height and were in uniform and unity. They transferred the order to those innumerable great army of different ranks. The faces of some soldiers were unveiled and as soon as I saw and recognized some of these men in uniform, the vision were taken up like a scroll, and all I could hear and fathom were voices amidst a great light with dates meant to be sealed. Amen.
In 1999, Dr. David Abraham was called into ministry with a mandate from God to “teach His people His covenant through the manifestation of His wisdom and power for the dethronement of powers of darkness, forceful liberation of captives and ESTABLISHMENT OF A NEW ORDER.”
Nigeria occupies a very prominent place in God’s end time agenda.
1Corinthians 1: 26-29 says:
“For ye see your calling brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh (those who took pride in the color of their flesh), not many mighty, not many noble were called. But God hath chosen the foolish things of this world to conform the wise. And God hath chosen the week things of this world to conform things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are: that no flesh should glory in His presence”.
In Mathew 2, Joseph and Mary took the child Jesus, and escaped to Africa for safety. God had foreseen that Africa would be very friendly to His plan for salvation. Yes, Africa would be very crucial and defining of His agenda for planet earth.
God was obviously pointing the vital role Africa would play in the unfolding of His agenda in the end time! Africa was a people clearly penciled by God to lead the whole world in His end time agenda.
In the early 70s, an American woman evangelist prophesied that Africa will be the arrowhead of the Gospel in the end time. But then, the plan of God cannot be thwarted. See how Nigerian pastors are taking over the nations of the world, how Nigerian churches are sending missionaries to the western nations which previously brought the Gospel to Africa. Right now, it is very glaring that Nigeria is fast becoming the first in everything that has to do with Christianity.
Now, The Lord has commissioned his son, Dr. David Abraham with His Vision of The Holy Nation Apostolic Outreach to prepare Body of Christ for the apostolic revival needed to usher in the return of Christ. Today, we are delighted to say that the fulfillment of God’s prophetic end time role for Nigeria has begun, mainly through the Holy Nation Apostolic Outreach, a Christian network that God has birthed in Nigeria, to spearhead His end time revival not only in Nigeria but globally. God is fulfilling His promise concerning Africa right here in the capital city of Nigeria. He is establising the epicenter of the final world revival that would be centred on the true knowledge of His Son, Jesus Christ prior His appearance to complete God’s prophetic calendar.
But then, God has begun a second and final phase of His power over the Church in these end times. He is, today, unfolding His final prophetic agenda for the Church. Right now, God is busy preparing the Church, which is His Bride, for the Marriage Supper of the Bridegroom, our Christ. This Bride is the Third-Day Church. It is a Church that will be characterized with Purity and Power (Eph 5:26). The people that make up this Glorious Church will be men that are operating in THE FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE REVELATION OF CHRIST AS THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS; They will be people that would carry the glory, nature and likeness and SPIRIT of Jesus Christ. They will be anointed men that would exercise total dominion over the kingdom of darkness and ultimately subdue it. God is presently gleaning them out of every nation, denomination and from the world system, bringing them together and equipping them as a formidable armed force and a spiritual machine. The recruitment is already on.. God has already begun unfolding His final prophetic agenda for the Church, and this involves reviving, raising, and empowering the Church. This is to be followed by her restoration, perfection, beautification and ultimately, glorification.
‘’We have entered the last days of the church, the most glorious and extraordinary move of the move of the history of the church! A move that sees Jesus seated on the right hand of God while the church makes ridicule of the devil, and makes him our footstool! A move that will witness the most phenomenal governmental anointing which will mysteriously elevate the believers from the bottom to the top and from the last to the first in the scheme of things! This is the much awaited move that will be characterized by great outpourings God’s spirit for unexplainable manifestations! In this move, there will be grace to live a holy life, grace to prosper supernaturally, grace to be empowered for leadership and governance at all levels, grace to cast out and frustrate the works of the devil, in a mightier dimension and grace to be complete, entire, having no need, but meeting the needs of mankind! There will also be a super outpouring of the spirit of compassion that will enable us rise as an army to come to the rescue of this nation and indeed our continent from the wickedness and irresponsibility of had governance by demonstrating concern and love to all suffering humanity, the poor, the destitute, the aged, the children, the desolate, the afflicted in our world, even our social order and values!’’
‘’The kingdom of God is all about the rule and dominion of God. The kingdom of God is not just a group of people praying and singing in a building.. It is a kingdom, full of glory and wisdom, offering hope and direction to a sick world. The kingdom is the termination of suffering, sin, social wickedness, political calumny, injustice and oppression. It is a kingdom which has its citizens struggle and resist against dehumanizing enemies of the rule of God on earth and use the full gospel action to point nations to the dignity of life. The quality of life and the beauty of life for which Jesus the lamb of God paid the ultimate price. So until we see righteousness, political sanity and societal uprightness run government structures, homes, offices and streets like streams, the kingdom has not yet come. Until justice and truth win the battle of supremacy over injustice and wholesale national irresponsibility, the kingdom is not yet! Until the old corrupt and fallen order is destroyed from the roots giving rise to a new, faultless order, the kingdom is not yet. We believe the root of any nation’s problem is not political, neither is it economic. The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. The kingdom that possesses the quality and dignity of life for which the Lamb of God paid the price on the Cross of Calvary. The Kingdom is heaven on earth, where there is no consequence of sin – weeping, neither sorrow, sickness, poverty and wretchedness, corruption, immorality, wickedness, ungodliness.
WHAT IS THE MOVE OF GOD? THE KEY TO UNLOCK THE MYSTERY OF THE MOVE OF GOD IS THE REVELATION OF CHRIST!
The Revelation of Christ is the centre of God’s eternal plan and purpose for man. Until Christ is fully revealed in the life of any man, God’s plan for that man has not been completed, irrespective of whatever thing or things he may have accomplished in life. This unveiling only begins at the new birth; So many have experienced the dynamic workings of God in the new birth and have stopped right there in their journey in life. The new birth is the operation of God which brings us into Christ, so we can begin a journey into the fullness of Him and so we can come to the place of perfection in Christ. In Colossians 4:28, Paul the apostle, by whom this mystery was handed over to us boldly tells us “Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus”. This is what is missing in the Church today and God is speedily at work, restoring the Church back to the revelation of Christ so His people can be perfected and ready for His return.
The Mystery of Christ
The word mystery is defined as something that baffles one’s understanding and cannot be explained. Paul speaks of the mystery of Christ:
For my concern is] that their hearts may be braced (comforted, cheered, and encouraged) as they are knit together in love, that they may come to have all the abounding wealth and blessings of assured conviction of understanding, and that they may become progressively more intimately acquainted with and may know more definitely and accurately and thoroughly that mystic secret of God, [which is] Christ (the Anointed One). Col. 2:2 AMP
…then he speaks more….
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (Ephesians 5:32)
Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, (Romans 16:25)
Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: (Colossians 1:26-27)
That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; (Colossians 2:2)
Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: (Colossians 4:3)
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. (1 Timothy 3:16)
In Ephesians 3:4–5 Paul refers to the mystery of Christ that “has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets.”
Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; (Ephesians 3:4-5 KJThe mystery of the Person of Jesus is even more profound on account of the kinds of human faith-responses that He inspired in the disciples of His own day and in Christian believers throughout the centuries.
There is a mystery in Christ, and God has been busy trying to show us this mystery so we can have access to Christ.
Consider the unique description of the Lord Jesus by God Himself. The Scripture describes Jesus as the mystic secret of God, which is Christ. Note the use of the phrase which is Christ, used instead of who is Christ at the end of the verse. This is how God describes Jesus, because Paul, the writer of this epistle, was speaking under the Holy Spirit’s inspiration, that we may come to have the abounding wealth that emanates from our understanding of this man― Christ, the Anointed One.
Christ is God’s Final Word..
In Heb. 1:1 we read that:
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; (Hebrews 1:1-3 KJV)
God, from inception, spoke through the prophets. That, whatever God has so spoken is a FINAL thing!
This scripture is saying that, in the workings of God, dispensations have come and gone, and that there is a final dispensation which is the dispensation of CHRIST, which has been completed, finalized and perfected and given to us! He has spoken these days by Jesus Christ, and not by prophets, pastors, or apostles. This is a statement that requires every pastor or leader to take an in-depth look at. This means in these days God is not doing anything different from what He has already spoken in Christ!
God is invariably saying, in these last days, my Son is ALL I HAVE SAID! He has spoken by His Son, Jesus Christ.
Therefore, Jesus is not just a name you pray through: He is what God has spoken; He is God’s final word. He is the expression of the heart of God, and the very Subject God has been trying to communicate to the world for ages. Therefore to know God and know what He is saying these last days you must look at Jesus. If you want to know what God has said, you must take a look at Christ.
Christ is our Mould…
Jesus starts off, therefore, as a Person and manifests in diverse forms as God continues to work in your life. He takes the form of what God wants to do. He takes the place of where God wants to be in your life. For instance, if you want to make a candle you first create a mould. This mould is to give the candle its shape and structural characteristics. You then pour the liquid wax into the mould and leave it to dry, after which you remove the mould leaving the candle ready for use.
Understand this: God did not say we should necessarily imitate Christ. Rather, He said we should conform to Christ’s image:
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. (Romans 8:28-29 KJV)
This means that, Christ is our MOULD, just pour yourself into the mould, and a new you in His image and likeness will emerge, and you can now talk like Him, act like Him, be a blessing like Him!
Christ is our Calling…
Apostle Paul did not know Christ in the flesh, yet he was the only one who truly knew Him, and wrote two thirds of the New Testament on Christ!
See what Paul understood about Christ and His calling, it will change your mentality about ministry and calling forever:
But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: (Gal. 1:15, 16)
God called him and revealed His Son in him. Please pay attention to the words used here, because herein lies the message God wants us to understand. Did you notice that Paul mentioned the purpose of this calling? What was it? He spelt it out clearly that this call was TO REVEAL HIS SON IN HIM (not to him.) There is a big difference: in him and to him. This is the standard for the calling. Please note this carefully! First of all, God called him to reveal Christ in him. To reveal means to unveil, uncover, remove the mask! After Christ was revealed in him, then comes the second thing, the assignment, and this was TO PREACH CHRIST. Note that he didn’t say God called him to preach only one aspect of the Kingdom such as healing, deliverance, faith, or salvation. No, no! Our assignment is so clear and unambiguous: to preach Christ and Christ alone. Get this loud and clear: the calling is not first of all an invitation to do something, but for God to reveal Christ in you. In other words, God did not call you so you could be busy doing something for Him, but called you out of the world to reveal Christ in you and it is this same Christ you are to present to the world.
Christ is God’s Measurement Scale
It is important that I remind you that God has a scale by which He measures our performance, which is the reason He released the ministry gifts and offices. In other words, God gave ministry gifts and offices to enable grow up, because a time will come, and now is, when he will measure every person, beginning with His ministers, with His scale, which is CHRIST!
His scale is not works, its not what we did and what we did not do. His scale is Christ!
…Till we all come …unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
