We already have too many casualties along this line, let’s not add more to the list. It is a pity that what the Older GENERATION did and most of them regretted doing is what the younger GENERATION of Pastors are rejoicing doing.
I was trained in Winners Chapel, privileged to pastor under some heavy weight Senior Pastors in charge of Mega Branches. I can’t say here what I would have loved to say. The truth is very clear. It is better to fall into the hands of God than to fall into the hands of a Spiritual Father.
For with God there is MERCY, but with SOME Spiritual Fathers, there is an Apostolic Grace on them that must bring down any person they are not happy with.
Please AVOID these THREE CONDITIONS when LEAVING your Spiritual Father, either as a staff of the Ministry or as a Pastor under the Ministry.
NEVER YOU RESIGN WHEN HE TRAVELS OUT OF TOWN ONLY FOR HIM TO RETURN TO HEAR YOU HAVE LEFT THE MINISTRY: Even if you are afraid of his face, please wait to see him physically, most especially if you have a personal relationship with him.
How can a man you call your Father, who raised and nutured you, return from traveling only to hear that you have left.
99.9% of Fathers will not wish such a Pastor well.
There is what is called the GOODWILL of a SPIRITUAL LEADER. The Will of God also needs the GoodWill of Elders.
WHEN HE IS SERIOUSLY ANGRY AND BITTER WITH YOU:
A soft answer turneth away wrath. You must find a way to get him happy with you again. If he is bitter with you, things can’t be better with you. This is not when to say God said I should leave him.
Please wait and make him happy again. He doesn’t need to curse you for you to be cursed. That anger and bitterness is already a curse.
WHEN HE HAS A TRADITION OF ALWAYS PRAYING OPENLY FOR THOSE RESIGNING FROM THE MINISTRY AS A SIGN AND A MARK OF HIS APPROVAL GIVEN TO THEM: DON’T GO until he decides to do the same for you.
There are members that will never relate with your new assignment until they are sure they won’t become partakers of your sin.
How can you work in a place where after so many years of working, you can’t do anything again with people from that place?
You wasted your years of service there.
It is very easy to say I don’t need any man’s approval, it is the approval of God I need.
But hear me, Jesus was Approved by God from heaven, yet He needed to still bow to the baptism of John-The-Baptist for his Ministry DOVE to be released.
There are many Doveless Ministries.
DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE FOR SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE PROPHET TO KNOW YOU ARE STILL CONNECTED TO THEIR FATHER. IT WILL GO A LONG WAY TO HELP YOU.
