The Sting of Discipline
October 16, 2020
Nothing gets the attention of children quicker and creates a lasting impact than the "sting of discipline from the rod of correction."
God is bringing a "sting of discipline" to His leaders. He has given repeated warnings through His prophets but His leaders have ignored these warnings thinking the warnings were for others.
Leaders that do not stop, repent and seek for ways that are completely pleasing to the Lord in ministry, will risk being removed from public ministry. Some will even encounter death for ignoring His prophets and blaspheming the holiness of God.
For many years God's plumb-line (prophets) have been sent by the Lord to measure (judge) the hearts and ways of God's leaders through various means of confrontation. (God's judgment always begins with God's house. We are God's house that is being measured and judged, we are His temple....NOT the buildings.)
Leaders that are not leading the people into the fullness of the image of Christ, are leading God's people into error and deception. The fruit of a ministry can be clearly seen in the lives of those who follow, and all are being measured accordingly.
Leaders will be called-out and openly confronted by prophets that carry a Priestly Zadok Assayer anointing. These strong parental leaders carry a "disciplining rod of correction" that will provoke through the sting of discipline: submission, maturity, and holiness.
These vessels have been sent by the Lord to raise the standard of holiness to God's standard, and bring a defining separation between that which is holy and what has been "commonly accepted" in ministry and worship...much of what has grieved the Lord and hindered the moving of His spirit among His people.
The result of this separation will be a great changing of the guards (leaders). There are none, no not one, that is exempt from God's correction and call to holiness. Leaders have continued to cry out for revival, but refuse to repent. Their cries are misguided and in vain as God will not bless disobedience. Leaders are unaware that they are the door to the revival they are seeking.
These leaders are binding the opening of the hinge by their own hands. They themselves are holding back the very revival they are seeking by refusing to stop, repent, and fervently seek and wait on God to lead them. Leaders are to lead in repentance and holiness....if leaders do not lead, others cannot follow.
Leaders have neglected God's people in meeting their most basic needs. These leaders have placed their own desires and lives before God's people. They have forgotten the greatest love comes through laying down one's life unto death and preferring others first. Many leaders have "hindered access" and have placed a "condition upon receiving" God's power and blessings by the selling of items.
These blessings of revelation had been given by the Lord and were to be given freely. Instead of giving and reaping the blessing of increase for giving, these leaders have placed a worldly man-made condition upon receiving. The Lord is sorely grieved as He has heard the cries of those in need. Soon His winking at this false assumption will cease.
Many leaders that continue to ignore these warnings will be confronted face to face by these strong disciplining prophets to turn them back in humble submission to the Father. These prophets are being sent to get the attention of these leaders. They will bring a striking blow, a life-altering sting to these leaders through the rod of discipline.
Hidden idolatry and agendas in today's leaders will be exposed, hearts will be laid bare, some will be exposed publicly; all to turn the focus back to a first love relationship with the Father and a walk of strict obedience.
God wants leaders to seek to please Him in all things, teaching "only" the words of His son Jesus Christ and His Kingdom...Not adding or taking away from His teachings.
The lives of leaders should represent and mirror the image of Jesus and His life of holiness. Those that do not turn, will continue to bring a curse upon their own lives, and the ground they walk upon. The leaders that repent and follow the Lord closely in obedience, will see a great outpouring of the blessings of God and these blessings will affect even the earth and land itself.
The Lord wants a bride without spot or blemish. If leaders are not holy and blameless, and their ways and ministries not pleasing to the Lord, they cannot raise up others to be "a holy, blameless and pleasing bride".
