If a young man who had never been to seminary school, never had been ordained by any pastor, and wasn't even a member of a church, approached you and said, "Thus Saith The Lord...", would you cringe? Would raise an eyebrow? Or would you just walk away?
Or what if a woman, who you knew had an history of prostitution and possession, knocked on your door and said that the Lord sent her to given you a message, could you receive it?
For the majority of the so-called church, the answer is no.
But let me enlighten you...
These are the ones that God is raising up and sending out in these last days. These are the people that the Lord is anointing and equipping to do exploits for the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Spirit of the Living God is walking through the streets, the alleys, the byways, abandon buildings, the fields, caves, homes, basements, attics, and the secret places.
He's not looking for the well-known
He doesn't care about how educated you are
He doesn't care about which church you belong to
He don't care about how many books you've written and sold
He doesn't care about your past credit, criminal activities, abuse, or secret sins
He doesn't care about how old you are
He doesn't care whether you are a man or a woman
All the Spirit of God is asking is. ARE...YOU...WILLING?
Are you willing to lay it ALL down and serve Him?
In the 21st century, the western church would have never accepted a modern-day Paul, Mary Magdalene, or even Jesus, Himself.
You know why? Because NONE of them would have fit into your category of what a "man of God" or "woman of God" is suppose to look like.
But let me ask you a question: "What was the Messiah suppose to have looked like?"
See, the majority of the Jews missed that one! How could a young, uneducated, poor, child of a now single-parent home be the Son of God?
The church of Jesus Christ began with a remnant of "nobodies" sent with a message into the world. And those nobodies ignited a fire that spread across cities, cultures, and continents. And in the end, NOBODY could stop the message.
And as it began...so it shall end.
