God chooses His servants. You do not choose yourself to be His servant.
John 15:16: You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain
Jesus spoke the above when speaking to His 11 disciples immediately before His crucifixion. Judas Iscariot had left.
It is Jesus who chose His disciples (apostles). Neither did they choose Jesus nor choose themselves.
Acts 1:2: Until the day in which He was taken up, after that He through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen
God Chooses His Servants; You Do Not Choose Yourself
God knows all His chosen servants before He forms them in the womb as He said to His servant Jeremiah.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you (Jer 1:5)
He sanctifies His servants for the gospel before they are born
…and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you (Jer 1:15)
Sanctified means set apart or separated.
Before they are formed in the womb, God chosen servants are ordained for their specific ministries
Jer 1:5: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; and I ordained you a prophet unto the nations.
If you are a God chosen servant, you do not need ordination or laying of hands by human beings and religious institutions for you to carry out your specific assignment on earth. You were ordained by God before He formed you in the womb.
Like Jeremiah, a time came when Paul learned that he was separated for the gospel from His mother’s womb.
Gal 1:15: …who separated me from my mother’s womb
A time comes when a God chosen servant realizes that s/he was separated for the gospel from her/his mother’s womb.
I realized in the year 2011 when God took me to heaven that I was separated and ordained for the gospel of Jesus Christ from my mother’s womb. See I was in heaven
And I realized that everything I passed through from my birth up to the time Jesus Christ appeared to me, I was being molded by God for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
As I watched my life being played in a big screen in heaven like a movie, from the time God placed me in the womb to my mother all through to me crawling, playing in the village up to me in the year 2011, I realized I was created for the gospel.
After their birth, God let’s His servants grow passing them through situations which mold and shape them for their appointed ministries.
God placed Moses in King Pharaoh’s house to mold and shape him to lead the children of Israel.
Acts 7:20-22: In which time Moses was born, and was exceeding fair, and nourished up in his father’s house three months. And when he was cast out, Pharaoh’s daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son. And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.
At last He made Moses become a shepherd because he was going to shepherd the entire house of Jacob and Moses had to learn.
Ex 3:1: Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
At this point Moses did not know that he was chosen by birth to lead Israel and what he was going through in His entire life was preparing him for this assignment on earth.
David grew being a shepherd and a warrior protecting his father’s flock from lions and bears. It was God molding David for His assignment on earth.
1 Sam 17:34-36: And David said unto Saul, ‘your servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock. I went out after it, struck it, and delivered the lamb out of its mouth: and when it arose against me, I caught it by his beard, and struck it and killed it.
Paul was well advanced in Judaism and he prosecuted Christians. It was God molding His servant Paul.
Gal 1:13-14: For you have heard of my conduct in Judaism, how beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and destroyed it. And I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
Big day for a chosen servant of God comes when God reveals Himself to His servant for the first time and sends her/him. God comes Himself; He does not send anyone.
He may appear in His countenance or you hear His voice call and speak to you.
He speaks and instructs His chosen servant one-on-one for the first time and the servant sometimes can ask God questions.
1. When the right time came, God appeared to Moses in a burning bush; He revealed Himself to Moses and He send him.
Acts 7:30-32: And when forty years had passed, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sinai in a flame of fire in a bush. When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him, Saying, I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and dared not look.
Acts 7:33-34: Then the Lord said to him, ‘Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground. I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and have come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you to Egypt’
God revealed Himself to Moses and they had a one-on-one talk for the first time.
2. When the right time came, God spoke to Joshua for the first time
Joshua 1:1: Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying …(verse 9)
3. When the right time came, God spoke to Samuel
1 Sam 3:4-5: That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, ‘Here am I’. And he ran to Eli, and said, ‘Here am I; for you have called me’. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down.
1 Sam 3:6: And the LORD called yet again, ‘Samuel’! And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, ‘Here am I; for you called me’. And he answered, ‘I did not call you my son; lie down again.
1 Sam 3:7-9: Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him. And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, ‘Here am I; for you called me’. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child. Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, ‘Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he calls you, that you shall say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant hears’. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
1 Sam 3:10-11: And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, ‘Samuel, Samuel’. and Samuel answered, ‘Speak; for your servant hears’. And the LORD said to Samuel, Behold…(verse 14)
4. When the right time come, God revealed himself to Jeremiah and send him
Jer 1:4-6: Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you and I ordained you a prophet unto the nations. Then said I, ‘Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child’
Jer 1:7-8: But the LORD said to me, ‘Say not, I am a child: for you shall go to all that I shall send you, and whatsoever I command you you shall speak. Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with you to deliver you’, said the LORD.
Jer 1:9-10 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, ‘Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
5. When right time came, God revealed himself to Paul for the first time and send Him
Acts 9:3-6: And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’ And he said, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus whom you persecute: it is hard for you to kick against the pricks’. And he trembling and astonished said, ‘Lord, what do you want with me?’ And the Lord said to him, ‘Arise, and go into the city, and you shall be told what you must do’.
Paul was chosen by Jesus Christ. Neither did he chose himself nor chose Jesus Christ but Jesus chose him.
Acts 9:15: But the Lord said unto him, ‘Go, for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel’
When God’s right time came, God appeared to me for the first time and I spoke one-on-one with Him. See my testimony of how Jesus Christ appeared to me
When God appears and speaks to His servant for the first time, a person realizes who s/he is, who s/he was created to be and her/his specific assignment on earth. And the servant knows His Master, His voice and God powers His servant.
A radical change take place in the servant and the servant is bold and ready to face death like John the Baptist, Paul, Peter, Stephen, etc for the gospel of Jesus Christ
And the chosen God servant leaves everything and goes to bear fruits; a vessel for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
If you claim to be God’s chosen servant and you have not had this one-on-one encounter with God Himself, you are not.
If you know you were created for the gospel, wait for God Himself to come, reveal Himself to you, reveal to you who you are, your specific assignment, instruct and power you before you move out. Sit and wait for God.
Do not move on your own without God Himself coming to you. Outside in the world, it is a dark Satan’s kingdom. You will not make it without Him.
If you are chosen by God, you had a one-on-one encounter with Him, you know your specific assignment on earth, God gave you everything you need to accomplish what you were created to do. Follow His instructions and directs. Do not move without Him telling you to move and do not do anything without Him telling you to.
If He says move move. If He says stop stop. Do not use your mind. Listen to God if you are His chosen servant.
Humanity thinks they can choose a servant to God. It is God who chooses not humanity.
The disciples wanted to fill the gap left by Judas Iscariot and they cast ballots to choose a servant for God. They choice Matthias.
Act 1:24-26: And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knows the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen. That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
See that they prayed and God did not answer. He let them do what they were determined to do. You must learn to wait for God to answer even if what you want to do may seem good in your eyes.
Humans choice Matthias for God to be His servant but God had His servant who He had created, sanctified and ordained before his birth; Apostle Paul.
Neither do you choose yourself nor be chosen by human beings to be a God chosen servant. It is only God who chooses His servants.
Studying worldly theological education, family linkage, inheritance, ordination by religious institutions, laying of hands by so ‘called God servants’, etc cannot make you a chosen God servant.
The problem we are facing today with perverted gospel and false damnation prosperity gospel is because of people choosing themselves or being chosen by humanity to be God servants. They think by studying worldly theological education, family linkage, inheritance, etc that they are chosen by God. No! You are not.
And because of humanity choosing God servants for themselves, they became scoffers; preaching and teaching what humanity want to hear, what those chose them want to hear. Their gospel is of enticing words with no power; cannot heal the disabled, raise the dead, etc like the gospel of early God chosen servants like Paul.
1 Cor 2:4: And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
1 Cor 4:20: For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
People choosing themselves or being chosen by humans to be God’s servants is what has brought false teachers, prophets, apostles, etc
You can neither power yourself or be powered by humanity for the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is only God who can power you for His gospel.
See this clearly between Matthias who was chosen by humanity and Paul who was chosen by God. You cannot compare their works and power. Paul was very powerful and his deeds for the kingdom of heaven are beyond words.
I saw Paul standing with the great cloud of witnesses in the sky as Moses, Elijah and John the Baptist stood with me on earth. See the vision of the great cloud of witnesses.
When you are chosen by humanity or choosing yourself to be a God servant, you are doing work for God not the work of God. See difference between doing work for God and doing the work of God.
You cannot choose yourself, you cannot manipulate God in any way. God knows all our thoughts and all the motives of our hearts.
God knows all His chosen servants.
John 13:18: I know whom I have chosen
Just ask Him if this and that person claiming to be His servant is truly His as I told you in the best way to know who is true God servants and who is not
God knows only those He has chosen. He does not know those who are chosen by humanity nor those who have chosen themselves.
Many of those people who call or you call themselves God servants, God knows them not. God has not allowed me to start exposing these ravening wolves in sheep’s clothing by their names.
And these ravening wolves are the one who hinder God chosen servants from carrying their assignments on earth.
God creates every person for a specific assignment on this earth. If you are not doing that specific assignment you were created to do, you’re continuing living in this earth has no meaning to yourself neither to the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of heaven is awaiting for the day you will wake up, realize why you are in this earth and do what you were created to do.
It is until you realize what you were created by God to do and start doing it when heaven starts celebrating and crowns start being placed on you as your heavenly inheritance increases.
It is not by mistake you are on this earth. God placed you on this earth for a purpose; specific assignment. Do you know what you were created by God to do on this earth?
If you are calling yourself a God servant and truly you are not, you are doing someone-else work while no one is doing yours. You will find in heaven you have no rich inheritance because you did not do what you were placed on earth to do.
The meaning of life in this earth comes when you realize why you were created, what you were created to do, and when you start doing it.
I was created for the gospel of Jesus Christ and if i am not doing it, there is no meaning of me being on this earth.
God chosen servants for the gospel of Jesus Christ are those in the fore-front for the gospel and most of them receive the crown of life i.e they are persecuted, die for the gospel.
If you are a true God chosen servant, be ready for persecution, to die for the gospel like many of God chosen servants. Being a chosen God servant is not easy and for every person reason few are chosen.
Mt 22:14: For many are called, but few are chosen
Apart from leaving everything for the gospel of Jesus Christ, you have to be ready for persecution. This is the measure of a true chosen servant of God.
Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand
