I come to realize that the most important and primary aspect in the current and future movement is the INCLINATION OF THE HEART aspect. This answers many questions and situations that exist. Why are there people who still “wait and see” ? Why are there people who still don’t want to merge ? Why are there people who still busy with themselves ? Why are there people who don’t seem to be serious? The answers are all summed up in one phrase: THE TENDENCY OF HEART!

The inclination of the heart, of course, only between us and God who knows, even we ourselves sometimes do not realize the inclination of our heart. We are swept away by our various decisions that have deviated from the pattern that God has set. So, we really need a condition that exposes our true inclinations to be corrected immediately:

  1. Be diligent in worshiping God while lifting up prayers that pleads the Holy Spirit to cleanse and straighten our heart. Only in worship and prayer that, the true inclination of our heart can be exposed

Genesis 8:20-21 (NIV) Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals

and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though[a] every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.

Jeremiah 17:9-10 (NIV) The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand

it?  “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.” Respond to what the Holy Spirit has exposed with a repentant heart and immediately do what is right!

2. It is very important for us to socialize with the right and accurate people in the movement.

Get closer to those who are desperately, passionately and all out in merging themselves in the movement that God has established. This would make a comparison between a ‘straight staff and a crooked staff’ (the inclination of the heart that is straight and crooked). Therefore, we immediately have examples and role models, as well as divine influence that we can follow. Remember, bad

company corrupts good habits. On the other hand, good company will destroy all bad attitudes and habits!

3. Keep reminding ourselves that our life is not about us ourselves, not even about “the pulpit of our own work or ministry”, no, but about the corporate goals that God has set in a local church that is built accurately!

God never design us to live alone, but in groups! God’s Word has confirmed that the ministry that God will rise up in the last days is the ministry of the body of Christ! No more individualist service! We will become a team with the spiritual father to complete the work that God has established. Let this be an understanding that delivers and maintains the inclination of our hearts to keep moving according to God’s plan.

4. The term ‘job is a platform for ministry’ is often misunderstood by many people, even though there is no individualist element there but rather a corporate goal.

If the inclination of our hearts is still individualistic or we want to be a ‘super star’ or someone who is ‘remarkable individually’  then all of the preaching of the word will continue to be understood by us in our own way that we label as God’s voice upon us. That’s the problem with the current situation when everyone feels they can hear God’s own voice. As if it could have the legality to move on their own on behalf of God’s voice!

Actually, it’s very simple to asses our work, whether it’s a platform of ministry that God really desires or not, all we have to do is clash our work against the corporate agenda. If the work makes us unavailable in doing the corporate work of a local church, then it is certain that the work is not our ministry platform. This is a simple touchstone that is often avoided.

Many people are currently actually LOOKING FOR A PLATFORM FOR A JOB WHERE THEY WORK (ridden and controlled by work that is not for the interest of the Kingdom). That sentence keeps ringing in my mind, as if exposing the current conditions.

All of a sudden, I see that there are so many bright lights like lasers that are flashing brightly and fast. Then the Holy Spirit confirms: I will bombard My people with the truth of the Word that will set them free from the bonds of the Babylonian system. Light their way into the lines of the soldiers of the living God to complete corporate agendas.

Now is the time for the ministry of the body of Christ to be born! Hallelujah!
