Consistency, that’s the keyword in a movement. The consistency of a message, the dynamics, and the intensity that we continue to maintain, inevitably will be a ‘concern’ today or in the future. There have been many ‘spiritual movements’ that lasted only a short time, many people followed but were not rooted in the Word, but only became mere followers without any divine weight. So, it will quickly change due to various winds of trends and teaching.
I believe the last movement in the last days is the revival of the BODY MINISTRY of CHRIST. But we need to understand God’s way of working, that He wants His people to unite with the movement figures that He raises in order to equip His people to become people who are rooted in the Word conveyed.
Ephesians 4:11-16 (NKJV) And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
These days we will hear more and more frequently the voices of propaganda from hell about the Word conveyed by movement figures: “The Word delivered is too hard, difficult to understand, difficult to accept and the language is too high”.
I realized that we need to respond appropriately to this voice in a way that remains consistent and instead must issue a voice that is the opposite, that the Word of God conveyed by the leader of the movement is easy to understand, easy to digest, has weight, and is very applicable. So, we should not be confused with other voices.
Just keep focusing on the path we have taken and believe that His Word will remain and everything else will surely pass. Our part as God’s people is to confidently support and make the voices of movement leaders viral!
We won’t be able to please all levels of generations, but we can remain confident that in every generation, God will still raise up those who please God. Those are the people who will be part of the ministry of the body of Christ! The movement will continue and will raise heroes of faith who will overcome the world by the Word! Amen let it be done in the name of Jesus!
