I am an Apostolic Pentecostal Prophet. To look at me, you'd never know, why? My walk is not based on what I wear, what I claim to be, or what church I attend, it's simply that I believe in the one true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! I stand for truth, and not man-made theology! Standards are scales by which we measure OURSELVES, and is not the way that God sees us. I know many, many people who claim their religion, but then when I ask them what they believe, 90% of them have not a clue, many are Pentecostals! They always refer me to their Pastors...sad but true.
God only responds to His Word, and our response to it. Our faith moves mountains, but if we don't know our heavenly identity and authority in the earth, then those mountains will not move, even if we scream at them!
Apostolics put more faith in their standards, than in their own ability to walk in the grace provided IN CHRIST. Our own righteousness is as filthy rags, yet we continue to wear them, as trophied clokes in the synagogues to prove our "holiness" before the world. I say we need to stand in the stead of Christ, laying aside every weight and sin that would so easily beset us from running the race to completion.
I proclaim that we do as our Brother, John the Baptist, and point the way to Christ, instead of pointing at ourselves to draw attention to our selves, our man-made denominational empires, and let the Spirit of truth ring throughout the earth in one mind and in one accord, and let every word be established in the spirit of prophetic truth!
