Price of Anointing

Romans 3:23, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”.

As humans, we all make mistake. Even a great prophet like Samuel made a mistake when he saw Eliab and thought, “Surely the Lord’s anointed stands here before the Lord.” But the Lord said to Samuel in 1 Samuel 16:7, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

When God commissioned Esther and I to set up the Fire Ministries, many respected pastors with influence and connection lacked the insight on why God chose me, a man of the world and rotten sinner, for this unique calling. As a result, lies and slander were spread which discredited us and doors were seemingly closed to us and our ministry. Even our mentors disassociated with us. We went through severe persecution, betrayal and rejection but we persevered, stood firm and stayed focus to obey Him. 

It was not easy to overcome such treatment without His favour and grace but we were willing to pay the price in order to “press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize ... (Philippians 3:14 AMP). 

It was a high price to pay in order for our body to host the manifest presence of His glory but now we see great rewards: the ministry bears tremendous fruits and has been growing from glory to glory and spreading to several nations, and finally God has given us a school. Past critics are now our friends and associates. If God is for us, who can be against us. No power of darkness can stop what the Lord has ordained. Amen!

AOF Global is catapulting to a higher dimension and level of anointing as God continues to grow our numbers by bringing in those who are not afraid of the price to pay because of their hearts that are so consumed by love for God and to do His will that they are willing to say No matter what, Lord!. Praise God!

To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen!
