Different kinds of leaders and Founders in the Church

1John 2:18. "Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time". This is the time where in we must be extremely careful as to who we are following as our pastors and leaders, this is the time when we suppose to begin to ask God for revelation as for who our leaders and pastors are, so that we will be able to know when we re be led by those whom God did not appointed or those who deviated from the instructions of God who called them and those whose only interest is to make merchandise of you. 2Peter 2:3. "And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingerer not, and their damnation slumbereth not".

Here you may think that one is judging, but all we need to is to know the difference between judgment and truth. All the same we have to say the truth whether we like it or not. if God have given you the opportunity to say the truth that will deliver His children and you fail to do just that it is a sin unto you and will also rise against you in Judgment even to condemn you. here we are going to try our best to look at the kinds of leaders found in the church and let people know what is behind what is called "Boom" in Christiandom today, in the old and new testament alike God has raised men of valour as leaders to His people letting them know where they have erred and lead them back to God. God Gideon was raised to pull down idols in His time. God raised various prophets in Israel to warn them of what they will be facing when go against God and His laws, so in our time God will not fail to raise men whom He has equipped with great revelation to reveal all that is going on everywhere in the name of worshipping God and for those who wants to make heaven at last to know the tricks of the devil.

2Corinthians 11:14-15 "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works". This passage tells us how possible it for us to have as many ministers of darkness transformed into the ministers of light. This ministers of darkness are given tasks to meet up with and they are doing their best to meet up the demands of their masters and this has resulted in having many churches everywhere. When Jesus was on earth He warned against this, Apostle Paul did his best to warn and all other apostles who at one time or the other did warn against all this. Now as we go on let us examine what we have today as leaders for you to know who you are following.

1. PURELY CALLED AND CHOSEN OF GOD

Those found in this group are the people called and commissioned by God, this set of people are very peculiar but they are very few. Luke 10:2 "Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly [is] great, but the laborers [are] few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest". This group of leaders, if you look at them closely, Their actions and teachings will always reflect the Spirit of God, they are totally concerned about the souls under their care, they are not always demanding, money is not the topic of every Sunday service and sermon, they don't tell you how much you will give for God to bless you, they are not interested in how much the tithe and offering should be because they are always interested in making sure you are prepared for eternity in glory with Christ Jesus. These are men whom God have disciplined in every way and whereever you see them they radiate the glory and presence of God, they are called names and in most cases they don't have large membership base. These are the men working according to the will of Him Who called them, this does not meant that God hasn't called many, He has called many but few are the ones doing His will and they are ones He knows. Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few [are] chosen. It might not be enough to be called but it is very much enough to be chosen.

2. SATANIC AGENTS IN DISGUISE

  • 2Corinthians 11:14-15 "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works".

It was this group that Jesus Christ and the Apostles seriously warned the people about, unfortunately the people have failed to listen to this warnings, all because everybody wants miracles, well being and prosperity. When the bible mentioned about false prophets it simply means satanic agents in disguise and for your information they are existing as bishops, pastors, evangelists, most reverends and archbishops in mega churches and small churches alike with great an untold miracles and signs and wonders. if you are an ordinary Christian without the spirit of God you may never be able to identify them from the real ones called of God. This is where the gift of the spirit comes to play, the gifts of discerning of spirits and vision and also dreams. If you don't have these gifts please do pray and ask for them from God because when you are equipped with these gifts hardly will anyone deceive you because before they come, you have already seen them and by the help of these spiritual gift from God you will know who they are. The people found in this group are trained and equipped right there in the kingdom of darkness before sending them to the earth for the purpose of deceiving people and sometimes they are human beings and in most cases they are not but they will appear in human body. Thank God that in all of this He gave His Spirit teaches us all things and illuminates our hearts with understanding. These days it is becoming hard to identify them, before now we do know them by their members outfit, mode of service, denying some vital doctrine of the bible but these days some of them are preach almost the truth of the bible with their members outfit looking so holy and righteous, preaching messages of holiness and righteousness. Matthew 24:5 "For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many". Now here lies wisdom, a lot more people have been deceived just because they hear the men and women in this group praying and doing miracles in Jesus Name. Jesus warned us. He said many shall come in His name.

Recently in Nigeria and other nations of the world, some people have given great revelation by the our loving Father the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, a lot these people have been exposed, we have seen and have heard, if you choose to believe those messages then you are on the right path but if you choose not to believe simply because they mentioned you pastor then it is your duty to go back to God and ask for further clarification.

3. LEADERS WITH AN UNKNOWN POWER

This is another group of leaders in christianity, they are also miracle whzkids, they perform miracles in great numbers but the most sympathetic thing is that they are possessed and are working with the power of darkness without their knowledge. Within themselves they believe they are working for and with the power of God. it may be hard for the reader to believe this very fact but whether you believe it or not it is a real fact and they are everywhere. they are always ready to give testimonies how Jesus or the angels appeared.to them commanding them to them to start a ministry or a church and they forget to test the spirit to be sure where the spirit is coming from as John warned. 1John 4:1. Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2Corinthians 11:14-15 "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works". Here the bible warned us that satan and his agents have taken up the coat of angels of light and therefore will do everything within their reach to appear as an angel of of the Lord Most High. Leaders, if you don't understand where your miraculous power is coming from please take up fasting and prayers and seek God's face and He will make sure you understand where you belong lest this happen to you. Luke 13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all [ye] workers of iniquity.

4. CHURCH BUSINESS

This is the last group of leaders in this classifications, These people does not have anything to do with the calling of God, they are not called to pastor or lead any church by God, they are not called to open any church but these people are a group of business men, investors and money mongers, seeing that they can get returns from church offerings and tithes they invest their money into building mega churches and employing unsuspecting young men of God to run the ministry or they will even run the outfit themselves. These are the ones who mostly give Christianity bad names because they are always on the pages of the newspapers either for sexual abuses with the female members of the Church, fraud, embezzling of church funds or all sorts of things that is not supposed to mentioned in the church. They also will go along way to anywhere to bring occultic power for miracles, signs and wonders.

The purpose of this write is not to disrespect anyone but that we might help to depopulate the kingdom satan by illuminating the hearts of the people with information that will help them know where they are standing whether it is of God or not. God bless you as you read.
