Zerubbabel, the leader of the people of Judah, had a great task to perform. After he led the first exiles back from the Babylonian captivity, he was called by God to begin the re-building of the temple in Jerusalem. In the first two years the foundation of the temple was laid, but then work came to a standstill for 17 years because of the disruptive activity of the Samaritan people. Our verse for today is part of a prophetic message Zechariah received from an angel concerning the completion of Zerubbabel’s temple project. The angel’s message still speaks to us today. ——————————————————-
What have you started that seems to be stagnated for years after it began? Churches always have building finds for the new building they desire to build, but the money it takes is there right away.
Your efforts to serve shall not go un-noticed before the Lord your God. He rewards them who are diligent and who seek Him for directions and the answer to life’s issues. So, I know He don’t leave you when you are performing and using the gift He placed in you.
We give up when we see nothing happening. We don’t realize that it takes time to put power of that magnitude together in the same room. Let me say it this way. In order for Ephesians 4:11 to come together to effectively do their job, it takes an extreme amount of anointing to cover the room. All of them have been anointed to do a speciific task in the service. To habe all of that power under one roof is almost earth moving, but most definitely life changing when the Spirit of God is involved.
It takes time to make sure that each region of the Body has functioning members of the five-fold ministry gifts, as we have termed it, in the Pentecostal settings.
Yes, one person can have the talent and anointing enough to cover a multiple of gifts and callings, but he/she can only use one at a time. They cannot walk in both at the same time, but can transfer from one gift to the next as the Spirit moves the scene.
Even though what I am saying ultimately is a revelations that I have been studying over my lifespan in the ministry. Having a multi-ministry calling and anointing to perform various duties that are needed within the local and corporate settings. The Scripture says your gift will make room for you. Your gift will come to action as soon as you see the opening and have the permissions to do that task by the Holy Ghost.
I am a worship leader with a Prophetic Psalmist gift. In other words, I see what and when the music ministry should change with the flowing of the anointing of the man/woman of God who may currently be ministering. Each person prayed for or Prophisied to mat require the Spirit to move in another fashion, so the Prophetic Is almost must hear and see this in order to go with the flow of the anointed. Only a few people are aware of this revelation, not many have the knowledge to understand what the Spirit of God has shown those selected to serve in this field how to function under the leadership and strong hand of the Holy Spirit.
