Therefore, how important it is for us to pay attention to the connectedness to the leader of the movement that God has ordained:
1. Make sure that we become a consistent person that rubs the Word we received from the leader of movement into our spirit and mind.
Never get tired to say the Word, declare, imagine and write them until our spirit is burning. Listen or read again every truth that we receive and make sure we write them down and give special time to dig deeper. Do this consistently and never feel that you already know, that you have understood, have perceived until finally make our enthusiasm in listening or reading again decrease! Overcome our hearts that are starting to lose enthusiasm. Take time to fast immediately!
2. Consistency in building spiritual man – because this is extremely important for us.
In this training, we are submitting the control of our life to the Holy Spirit. We keep on making sure the numerous desires of the body that are against the desires of the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 9:27 (NIV) No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
Romans 8:13 (NIV) For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to
death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
Indeed, when we build up the spiritual man by praying in the spirit as powerful as possible, declare the word expressively, then jump, dance, shout and worship in an unlimited period of time(the benchmark is until the spirit burns), all of this requires great energy. Our bodies are also being trained not to be lazy!
Be aware, this kind of training will actually make us in our daily lives become individuals who think about the things of the Spirit. It becomes easy for our minds to focus on divine things, for we conquer all the flesh when we build up our spiritual man. We are putting off the old self and at the same time putting on the new self!
Ephesians 4:20-24 (NIV) That, however, is not the way of life you learned when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
3. Consistent to listen only from one input!
Discipline the inclination of our heart that starts looking for other inputs that “pleases the ears”. Act decisively if we start to ‘turn away from the leader of the movement’! Remind yourself to focus on healthy connectedness with movement leaders!
The inclination of our heart determines with whom we will be connected. If we truly love God and His truth, the Spirit will make us become one with the leader of the movement (one spirit, one faith, one goal and one agenda). This is what will enable us to be raised by God to become the body of Christ who rules and has power!
Ephesians 4:14-16 (NIV) Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
CONSISTENCY IS AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FACTOR IN THE MOVEMENT! Be a CONSISTENT person!
