“Whoever Receives You Receives Me, And Whoever Receives Me Receives Him Who Sent Me. Every One Who Receives A Prophet, Because He Is A Prophet, Will Receive A Prophet’s Reward, And Every One Who Receives A Righteous Man, Because He Is A Righteous Man, Will Receive A Righteous Man’s Reward” (Mat. 10:40-41 WNT).
Looking Back Over The Years Since I Began Preaching The Gospel The Morning After The Lord First Appeared To Me In My Room At Age Five And Called Me Into The Ministry, I Have Observed That The Result And Impart Of My Ministry Has Largely Been Determined By How The People Received Me. I Have Not Been Able To Impart Lives Where I Have Been Rejected Just Like Jesus Couldn’t Really Make Impart Where He Was Dishonored.
“But In The Next Breath They Were Cutting Him Down: “We’ve Known Him Since He Was A Kid; He’s The Carpenter’s Son. We Know His Mother, Mary. We Know His Brothers James And Joseph, Simon And Judas. All His Sisters Live Here. Who Does He Think He Is?” They Got Their Noses All Out Of Joint. But Jesus Said, “A Prophet Is Taken For Granted In His Hometown And His Family.” He Didn’t Do Many Miracles There Because Of Their Hostile Indifference” (Math.13:55-58 MSG).
Honor Is A Spiritual Law; Once It’s Violated You’re Disqualified For Spiritual Blessings. Jesus Said, ‘You Will Not See Me Again Until You Say, ‘Blessed Is He Who Comes In The Name Of The Lord’. This Doesn’t Only Speak Of His Return But It Means We Will Not See Him Till We Begin To Honor, Receive And To Bless Those Who Come In His Name (Mat.23:39). God Comes In His Messengers But You Must Look Pass Their Appearance And Flaws To See Him In His Fullness In Them. The Prophet You Dishonor Will Not Reward You. The Anointing You Despise Will Not Impart You.
I Remember Giving A Word That A Certain Woman Was Going To Conceive And Another Woman Who Was Just Passing By And Had Been Barren For 12 Years Received The Word And Held It Preciously And She Conceived The Following Month. People’s Faith Always Limits Their Height In Spiritual Accomplishment. The Centurion Honored Jesus So Much He Said He Doesn’t Have To Come To His House For His Servant To Be Healed. He Understood Authority And The Power Of Spoken Words So He Begged Jesus To Just Speak A Word. “The Centurion Replied, “Lord, I Do Not Deserve To Have You Come Under My Roof. But Just Say The Word, And My Servant Will Be Healed. Then Jesus Said To The Centurion, “Go! It Will Be Done Just As You Believed It Would.” And His Servant Was Healed At That Very Hour” (Mat. 8:8, 13 NIV). A Woman Who Was Probably Inspired By The Centurion’s Story Said Unto Me, ‘Just Say A Word And My Son Will Be Healed’ And I Said Unto Her ‘Be It Unto You According To Your Faith’ And It Was So, His Son Was Healed Of Tuberculosis. “He Sent His Word, And Healed Them, And Delivered Them From Their Destructions” (Psalm 107:20). Another Fellow Said, ‘I Placed Your Picture I Got Online Upon My Only Daughter Who Was Mentally Sick And She Said She Saw A Brilliant Light Shone From The Picture And She Got Healed Of Her Mental Situation’. Another Said ‘Man Of God, I Begged You To Receive An Offering And In That Same Month I Made My First Million Profit’. There Are Countless Testimonies Resulting From People’s Faith In The Prophet.
Faith Places Demand On The Ability Of God In His Prophets. The Woman With An Issue Of Blood Said ‘If I Could Only Touch The Hem Of His Garment I Shall Be Made Whole’ And The Same Garment Many Have Thronged With No Effect Made Her Whole Because She Touched It With Faith (Mark 5:25-29).
Not Everyone Who Said Amen Or Liked The Prophetic Words Are Entitled To Been Changed By Those Words But Only Those Who From Their Heart Receive The Prophet. God In His Prophet Is A World Of Possibilities So His Declarations Are Not The Mere Words Or Empty Sayings Of A Mere Man But They Carry The Anointing Of The Holy Spirit To Make Anything Happen For Anyone Anywhere According To Their Faith. The Lingering Anointing Follows The Prophet’s Words And Anything And Everything That Proceeds From Him Even Long After His Physical Death.
“Once While Some Israelites Were Burying A Man, Suddenly They Saw A Band Of Raiders; So They Threw The Man’s Body Into Elisha’s Tomb. When The Body Touched Elisha’s Bones, The Man Came To Life And Stood Up On His Feet” (2Kings 13:21 NIV).
If A Dead Old Testament Prophet’s Bone Brought The Dead Back To Life How Much More Shall People Be Blessed Through A Living New Testament Prophet! Countless People Have Received The Baptism Of The Holy Spirit Just Reading My Book Or Write Ups. Many Others Have Been Healed And Lots And Lots Have Been Saved. An Elderly Woman Who Has Heard Of My Ministry Told The Children On Her Sick Bed, ‘Just Bring That Prophet’s Picture And Place It Upon Me And I Will Be Healed’ And That Was The End Of Her Long Time Paralysis! Glory To God! Yet There Are Still So Many Who Throng Me Daily But Are Just There, Not Receiving Anything Because They’re Either Ensnared In The Web Of Familiarity Or Unbelief.
Familiarity Breeds Dishonor Which Is A Major Hindrance To Receiving The Prophet’s Reward. Remember Judas Was Jesus Familiar Friend And Instead Of Getting Transformed By His Ministry He Ended Up Betraying Him;
“Yea, Mine Own Familiar Friend, In Whom I Trusted, Which Did Eat Of My Bread, Hath Lifted Up His Heel Against Me.” (Psalm 41:9).
Familiarity Can Make You Betray The Anointing That Should Uphold And Impart You. It Can Make The Prophet Look Too Ordinary By Making You Blind To The God Inside Him And Exposing You To All His Humanity.
How Much Can You Receive? You’re Only Limited To Receive As Much As Your Faith Can Conceive. So Believe In The Lord Your God To Be Established And Believe Also In His Prophets To Prosper (2Chro. 20:20). In Whose Name Do You Receive The Prophet, Is It In A Brother’s, A Teacher’s Or In A Prophet’s? Don’t Just Receive Him In Any Name But In The Name By Which God Appointed And Anointed Him. In The Name Of A Prophet! Believe His Words Are From The Lord As Long As They Agree With The Word And Honor The Calling And Anointing Upon Him. Sow Into That Anointing And Lay Hold Of All That Your Faith Can Conceive.
You’re Faced Up With A Prophet’s Reward!
Expect A Miracle!!!
