There are Sons you relate with at the general level of relationship and there are those you relate with at the personal level. When you bring in the General into the Personal, you will suffer Ministry Funeral.
There are Fathers who are very frustrated in Life and Ministry because of the activities of Sons who came into their inner circle and did Ministry Damage. You can relate with anyone and everyone, but when it comes to your inner circle, you MUST be INTENTIONAL.
Remember, he who cannot manage his circle very well, will always go through life in circles.
Even Jesus had 12 Disciples. Among the 12, He related at a deeper level with Peter, James and John.
At the Mountain of Transfiguration, He took 3 of them because He knew there will be secrets to be kept after that encounter. He said to them, ‘see that you tell no man the Vision until the Son of Man is risen.
1) SONS WHO CAN’T GIVE YOU 100 PERCENT LOYALTY.
If they offer you 99%, don’t accept because the 1% left can do the damage.
2) SONS WHO CAN’T KEEP YOUR SECRET, MOST ESPECIALLY, WHEN YOU CAN KEEP THEIR OWN SECRETS.
Every Spiritual Father that is loved in Nigeria is loved because his 2nd in Command can keep his secret. If you are a Father that is open, you need a Son whose mouth can manage your openess.
3) SONS WHO ARE VERY DISRESPECTFUL TO YOUR PERSON.
These groups give the impression that you are either at the same level with them or below them. They can put their both hands in their pockets when talking with you to send a wrong message to other team members.
4) SONS WHO HAVE THE HISTORY OF BETRAYAL AND REBELLION TO AUTHORITY.
They always have a bad story to tell you of where they left. They will also leave you. He who has rebelled against any Grace will rebel against any other Grace.
5) SONS WHO ARE OVER AMBITIOUS.
These ones can’t wait for your crucifixion before their glorification.
They can kill you ahead of time so that they can start shinning ahead of time.
6) SONS WHO DON’T BELIEVE IN HONOURING YOU AND DISCOURAGE EVERY MOVE TO HONOUR YOU.
This is the spirit of Judas. They always believe anything expensive should not be for their Pastor but for the Poor because that is the only way to steal from it as the ministry’s treasurer.
7) SONS THAT WILL NEVER SPEAK THE TRUTH IN YOUR MEETING WITH THEM, BUT WILL MISREPRESENT YOU TO PEOPLE AFTER THE MEETING.
You MUST take note of Sons who are extremely quiet during your meetings with them.
AS A SON, IF YOU CAN’T GIVE WHOEVER YOU CALL YOUR FATHER THE ABOVE MENTIONED QUALITIES, IT IS TIME TO REPENT SO AS NOT TO COME UNDER A CURSE.
REMEMBER OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, HAS A WAY OF DEFENDING SPIRITUAL FATHERS IN THE MATTERS OF THE KINGDOM.
