The punishment of Christian leaders who have been caught in church politics are going to be more than ordinary members in church who disobeyed God. The reason is that because these leaders have not allowed Jesus to operate, God’s work has been hurt.
Do not desire high position in church, but desire to have quiet and spiritual influence on people. But if God puts you in an office by virtue of His dealings in your life, do not spare Satan and those that do his bidding. Exert Christ and His will and purpose. Exert it to the fullest.
Don’t be afraid that the church politicians will harm or kill you, after all you are already dead. This is what they do when they take office by manipulation. They exert Satan and his purpose to the fullest through their SELF.
Preach the Cross
To bring Christ to express and execute His will on earth, we must strive to turn the tables against Satan. We must preach the cross. We must preach no other message. Other messages are good but not strategic. The preaching of the cross is more strategic. We must target the SELF in men and shoot it down through anointed preaching and teaching of Christ and Him crucified. When we shoot SELF down we have shot down Satan, and we will “see him fall down as lightning” and Christ will be enthroned in the hearts of men, so that God’s will in heaven will be done on earth, and then people will rejoice.
When this is done politics in churches will disappear. There will be no more supplanting. There will be no more fighting, and going to court. There will be no more bringing of charms in the household of God. The Holy Spirit will have the atmosphere to operate. There will be peace, joy, prosperity and righteousness and glory. Servants who live the crucified life will emerge in leadership positions, and God will move again in the midst of His people.
