Some years ago, after we finished a major event, we had one or two people who wanted to see us. A young man came in and told us that he was really blessed by the meeting. According to him, he was about to head to his own church that morning when the spirit took him and brought him to ours. He said he did not even know how he got to us. We listened keenly. 

After recounting everything, he said that he thought he should join our church’s workforce. I appreciated him for the kind words but then asked for his role in his church. He was the Assistant Music Director. He definitely was gifted. I told him it was not a big deal. The Holy Spirit can lead you to our church but please, kindly go to your pastor and inform him. Afterwards, you can come to us when you have gotten his approval. He never returned. 

I knew by inner witness that one day the way “the spirit blew him” to us, he will be blown to many other places along the way. We would never be able to ask questions because it is the spirit. 

I have been there before- as a young undergraduate, I will be heading to my fellowship and just sense that the “spirit” wanted me to go to another fellowship. I would turn around and go to the other ones. I was never rooted anywhere. Sincerely, I did not grow and no one could hold me accountable for almost two and a half years. When I eventually found my feet, there was no blowing around again.

Listen! God is not an author of confusion. He wants things to be done decently and in order. 

“For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” (I Corinthians 14:33 NKJV)

We are in the days of God’s outpouring but we must learn submission also. No move of the spirit will leave behind the bride of Christ – the church. Christ will keep washing the church until she has no more blemish. The church is Christ’s gift to Himself. 

Every gift in you that breeds pride because you “hear from the Spirit” is raising a rebel. An anointed rebel is still a rebel. A gifted rebel is still a rebel. 

The gifts of Prophets and Teachers were flowing out of a local church in Antioch. If you will last in the move of the Spirit, there must be three things in your life: 

First, a Base (The Local Church). Where are you planted? Who is your Pastor? Did you just shoot out as a star? Yet, there are wandering stars (Jude 1:13 NIV). They collide with others. They always cause issues. They operate out of their orbit. 

“These sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy, but they were not found: therefore were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood.” (Ezra 2:62 KJV)

Those who are not trained always pollute the priesthood. The polluted priesthood will defile a generation. Do not become a gifted weapon in the wrong place. 

Second, there should be a Believers Company. A believers company is a small group that keeps you accountable while also encouraging you. 

Third, there must be the Backing of the Holy Spirit in all you do. 

Do not jump number 1 and begin to take pride in Number three. God is a God of Order and not disorder. 

You are gifted. I agree.

Are you trained?
