The strategy of the devil is to keep you from walking in the Agape Love of GOD. If he and his demons can keep you from this revelation and walk, they know you will be of little value in expanding The Kingdom of GOD on the earth. You and I are meant to produce fruits of perfection!
Jesus spoke concerning perfection in Matthew chapter 5:
48 Since you are children of a perfect Father in Heaven, become perfect like HIM.”
When Jesus spoke the above, He spoke the Words of FATHER and we need to understand that this directive is attainable for each of us. Don’t let the devil tell you otherwise.
Whenever you pray in Tongues, you not only build your faith up but you also build up your Love by immersing yourself in HIS Word of Love. As we reach full maturity in Love, we will fully understand the blindness all around us and will be merciful to the current state of people.
Jesus provided us with perspective when He was placed on the cross and stated in Luke chapter 23:
33 When they came to the place that is known as The Skull, the guards crucified Jesus, nailing him on the center cross between the two criminals. 34 While they were nailing Jesus to the cross, He prayed over and over, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they’re doing.”
Our character training requires us to walk in Agape Love in the same manner as Jesus. He was perfect and we are meant to attain the same perfection or else why would He proclaim that we are meant to do greater works than Him?
Jesus declared in John chapter 14:
12 “I tell you this timeless Truth: The person who follows Me in faith, believing in Me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! 13 For I will do whatever you ask Me to do when you ask Me in My Name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring Glory to Him. 14 Ask Me anything in My Name, and I will do it for you!”
We must not allow anyone to promote compromise in this Word given to us. Some will try to water down these Words because they are not pursuing this walk of Agape Love. Their egos are simply trying to justify their current state of fruitlessness and they desire agreement from others. Isn’t this what the people did in Malachi chapter 3 when they were challenging the tithe? FATHER spoke:
13 “Your words have been harsh against Me,”
Says the LORD,
“Yet you say,
‘What have we spoken against You?’
14 You have said,
‘It is useless to serve God;
What profit is it that we have kept His ordinance,
And that we have walked as mourners
Before the LORD of hosts?
15 So now we call the proud blessed,
For those who do wickedness are raised up;
They even tempt God and go free.’ ”
However those who feared and reverenced GOD responded with a different understanding:
16 Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another,
And the LORD listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the LORD
And who meditate on His Name.
17 “They shall be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts,
“On the day that I make them My jewels.
And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.”
18 Then you shall again discern
Between the righteous and the wicked,
Between one who serves God
And one who does not serve Him.
For those who Love GOD, Jesus has taken everything from the god of this world we need to fulfill our individual callings. As He stated, “Ask Me anything in My Name, and I will do it for you!” Anything means anything. The only restriction to this is our current level of revelation and understanding. As we move on to perfection, our revelation will fully align with this emphatic statement made by Jesus.
The five-fold ministry is meant to move the believers to this level of perfection. If they are not fulfilling their purpose, then you should move on to where The Holy Spirit is allowed to minister this perfection. Otherwise how will you be able to produce fruits of perfection?
Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 4:
11 And He has appointed some with grace to be apostles, and some with grace to be prophets, and some with grace to be evangelists, and some with grace to be pastors, and some with grace to be teachers. 12 And their calling is to nurture and prepare all the holy believers to do their own works of ministry, and as they do this they will enlarge and build up the body of Christ. 13 These grace ministries will function until we all attain oneness into the faith, until we all experience the fullness of what it means to know the Son of God, and finally we become one into a perfect man with the full dimensions of spiritual maturity and fully developed into the abundance of Christ.
14 And then our immaturity will end! And we will not be easily shaken by trouble, nor led astray by novel teachings or by the false doctrines of deceivers who teach clever lies. 15 But instead we will remain strong and always sincere in our Love as we express the Truth. All our direction and ministries will flow from Christ and lead us deeper into Him, the anointed Head of His Body, the church.
Smith Wigglesworth was once asked why he attended five different denominations. His reply, “When The Holy Spirit left the denomination, I did too.” Interesting comment.
