Rusty Prophets, Moldy Testimonies & The Era of Celebrity Christianity is over! :By Jodi Hill

The Cry -- The Complaint

by Jodi Hill

More...more!! Satisfy my insatiable appetite. Feed me with the food You prescribe. No less. Move in me... make me what You want me to be Change me, mold me... but don’t make me do anything. Give me meat... but don’t make me digest it. It’s too much work for me. The cry of the people is too hard to bear here’s my money send someone...else. I sit in my closet...(hidden) I pray for my nation. What?! You want to send me?! I have far too many responsibilities... my family, my job, my church, my house, myself. Well, here’s my money... send someone...else. I’ll pray for them in my closet.

*We are always praying for God to send someone to the nations but we are seldom willing to go ourselves.*

Honey, it's time to come out of the PRAYER CLOSET

You can only stay in the War Room for so long…eventually you have to get out into the battlefield and fight the battle. No…it's not with swords and spears…it's not against flesh and blood. (Ephesians 6:10-20 The Armor of God…Paul asks them to pray for him to have boldness to speak the Word of God. Really? Paul needed boldness?) This is a spiritual battle and the way we fight and defeat the enemy is through love, compassion and our witness. (Revelation 12:10-12, "They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony.")

The Era of Celebrity Ministry…It's Over! It's time for Grass Roots Move of God

We are in the last days. Joel 2 talks about in the last days the Spirit will fall on all flesh. But in Joel 3:9-13, it says, "Prepare for War! ...Call out your best warriors…hammer your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears…TRAIN EVEN YOUR WEAKLINGS TO BE WARRIORS…"

God gave us a taste in 2020 of how easily we could lose our liberties. Are you prepared to take church to home/coffeeshops/parks…etc. And without your Pastor to oversee you? Where do you get spiritual motivation? Is it only from church in the building on Sunday at 10am-Noon? We are the Eklessia…the Called-out ones…but for years now we've been the stay in ones. It's time we take the gospel out where it belongs…in the World that needs Jesus.

No more Rusty Prophets and Moldy Testimonies…We need Fresh Manna and New Wine. We need to come against the spirit of apathy (Read Revelation 2 & 3) that is worming it's way into the church. Backslidden Believers are not going back into drugs or sleeping around…it’s the sin of apathy. Although if not corrected it could lead to that.

It's not just about knowing Bible Verses and quoting the Scripture…you have to have it deep within you. It has to become part of your DNA. Spouting Bible Verses doesn't give you power and authority. Being the Living Word does. The Holy Spirit living within us and working through us is what brings the Word of God alive like it says in Hebrews 4:12.
