3. Holy Nation: Christ of the Living God

And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar–jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.   And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.   And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Matthew 16:16‭-‬19 KJV
Now there is a revelation which came to Peter because this is what Jesus said:
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar–jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 16:17 KJV
Jesus is releasing a blessing to Peter because it is not the mind of Peter that spoke but the Mind of God.
What did God say through Peter?
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Matthew 16:16 KJV
1. He is The Christ of The Living God.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Matthew 24:24 KJV
I say and put emphasis that He is Christ of the living God. This means the Anointed of the Living God.
There are many other Christs who are also anointed and not by the Living God.
They show many signs and wonders. They deceive the elect. This is already happening in Africa.
We have a Priest already in West Africa that has anointed many false Christs and they are doing great wonders deceiving the elect who leave their churches on a ticket of greater signs over there?
I ask you, reader; could that be building the Church or the ministry of the false Christ? I leave that to you.
From this answer of Peter, it means there were already many other false Christs who came before his day of revelation.
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Matthew 16:18 KJV
This revelation given to this Apostle Peter became the Rock and foundation upon which the Church the Holy Nation was going to be built by Christ!
The apostles and prophets are given revelation that becomes a foundation of the building of the Church.
It is upon the revelation that Christ builds His Church.
What revelation does your ministry carry?
What revelation does your Apostle and Prophet carry?
Is Jesus building the Church upon that revelation?
There is a revelation which when it is present in our midst through our Apostles and Prophets; Jesus shows up to build His Church.
Is Jesus Building His Church upon the Rock and Revelation which your Apostle and Prophet carry?
I am asking this question because today in Africa we have forgotten the Christ of the Living God but we are working hard to authenticate the Man of the Living God who is leading us.
We have more visibility of our “Papa” who is doing great miracles and his name is declared more than that of the Christ of the Living God.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Matthew 24:24 KJV
They want Christ to Build His Church upon the revelation that their Papa is from the Living God.
They are not BUILDING THE HOLY NATION with Christ but they are building the MINISTRY of their leader.
Everyone is encouraged to mention the name of the Man of God as demons run faster when they hear the name of this man is mentioned.
Did Jesus say He will build His Church upon that Rock? I will leave it to you to answer.
Now I have just revealed one group which is surely not building on this foundation Jesus spoke of.
But what about those who are building on HALF OF THE REVELATION?
The revelation which Peter received revealed this as the Christ of the Living God.
I know of many churches that are building on this revelation and they are building on the true Christ of the True God.
But somehow the end product of what they are building is NOT THE HOLY NATION. Why is it that way? What are they missing in the Revelation?
They are building ORGANIZATIONS and not THE HOLY NATION.
They carry the true anointing of the Christ of the Living God but they end up building their Ministry as well.
When they are gone in this realm they go with all what they were building; just like a man who did not have sons but was a great man.
Is there anything they miss from the revelation?
I have shown what we have in Africa and in the next installment, I will show you what we have from our beloved Western Missionaries.

Let me close by saying God has brought Ezras and Nehemiahs who are repairing the foundations in Africa. We will look in the next installment what the second group is missing from the revelation.

2. Holy Nation: Church vs Ministry

As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Ephesians 2:20 KJV
I am very careful about how I begin this teaching today.
The Apostolic Prophetic mandate is to build a Holy Nation.
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:
1 Peter 2:9 KJV
Abraham is called a Father of Many Nations and upon the covenant built the many nations become One Holy Nation.
This Holy Nation is built on the foundation of Prophets and Apostles.
Abraham saw This Nation and not his little Clan and Tribe in a small making.
Apostle Paul saw This Nation beyond the limitation of Jewish rich history and experience with God.
Peter saw This Nation and understood the responsibility of Building this Nation.
We are in the season whereas we build we need to SEE THIS HOLY NATION as what we are building.
I am speaking to the churches in India and many which shall rise in India.
I speak from the African ministry building experience and I desire to share with India what we have done and are continuing to do.
I am pleading with you to prepare for the future in India.
According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.  For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:10‭-‬11 KJV
India be careful how you build.
We in Africa celebrated millions that came to the Lord but failed to investigate the foundation up in which we build.
We are BUILDING THE HOLY NATION.
Paul says we must build on the foundation of Christ.
I want to say right away that we build on the foundation of Christ which is the foundation of The Son.
In Africa, we have built on the Christ part which excludes the Son.
We have built on the anointing (Christ) outside the relationship (Son).
As a result, we did not allow Christ to build His Church through us. But we settled for building our Ministries.
Today Africa is full of Ministries that are irreconcilable which are not BUILDING THE HOLY NATION.
I have put a lot of bold statements here without the support of the scripture.
I will simplify all this in the next chapter.
India you are a big population. You have an opportunity of Building in the right way.
Do not go back to our mistakes in Africa.
By the Grace of God, we are correcting our mistakes but it is costly.
We have not built on the Father-Son foundation.
We have not built families.
We have built organizations.
We are not relational but we are transactional.
We will simplify all this in the next session.
Shalom

Holy Me vs Holy Nation

 

There is a populist version of Christianity that is rampant in this day and age.

It is the version of The Holy Me. And this is the enemy of the Holy Nation.

People are attracted to the Holy Me personality. Because everyone wants to be Holy Me.

This disease makes it difficult to be in the midst of those who are building The Holy Nation.

You see it takes a day to package The Holy Me but it takes years of patience and live to build the Holy Nation.

The Holy Me does mot have the eyes to see The Holy Nation.

For a Holy Me to exist the has to be Unholy Others.

Even when you attempt to bring all The Holy Me’s together they can’t build a Holy Nation. They have to spend time proving who is the Most Holy Me among themselves.

For this reason they must spend time digging the dirt of the other.

For them being Holy means being Covered therefore they feed on the Nakedness of others in order to feel more Holy.

The Holy Me is the disguised version of the Orphan Spirit today.

They must out Perform Other Holy Me’s for their Holiness to shine brighter.

This is the populist version of the gospel that has invented Racism and Discrimination over many centuries.

Orphans (orphan spirit) and Slaves make the best population and breeding zone of the Holy Me.

Sons build The Holy Nation.

Sons have eyes to see The Holy Nation.

Every miracle and every testimony recognizes the building of The Holy Nation.

These therefore are not sensational overnight occurrences they are a bigger scheme of things in the Purpose of God.

This is the foundation that brings us to the place of Building Sons so as to realise the Holy Nation.

A nation cannot be built by committees.

A nation cannot be built by organisations.

A nation is built by Sons and Families.

A Holy Nation is built by Spiritual Sons and Spiritual families.

This is our purpose in this gathering. To build a Holy Nation.

If you have grown up all your years in a Christian Nation you will never understand the Holy Nation.

The Christian Nation is made up of the Holy Me’s who are in the business of consuming one another.

The Holy Nation is made up of Spiritual Sons who are in the business of submitting to their Spiritual Fathers.

In order to build a congregation of the Holy Me’s you need to have a daily proof that they are better than others.

This proof you give to them when they have finally seen that you are better than them.

Then as a congregation you must prove that you are a superior congregation than others.

Whatever miracle that will emerge must probe that you perform bigger miracles that other congregations.

Then you first show that you pray more than all of them and then prove that they pray more than all other congregations.

This is a Bubble effect that has visited the Christian circles today.

We live in the Boom seasons of that effect because very soon this system is about to collapse.

This is the reason why there is a rise of Sons who are preparing for the visibility of the Holy Nation.

This is the Church that was born at the Pentecost which Peter eventually saw it as The Holy Nation and not the Christian Nation.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

1 Peter 2:9 KJV
