The Four Spirits!

"And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass" Zechariah 6:1.

These four chariots were separately pulled by red,  black, white and speckled horses, and the colour coding determined their respective callings or assignments.

"Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord? And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth" Zechariah 6:4-5

The four spirits


The Holy Ghost is in our lives to pull us or direct us to do God’s work.

The chariots that was pulled by the black horses went north, and the one pulled by white horses followed it there. The speckled horses went south, and the red horses patrolled back and forth across the earth. 
Their task, or the spirit’s task was to execute God’s judgement, and so the red horses carried out their task and quieted God’s anger.

We are with the spirit got to do God’s work with much speed. But before you could do, first identify your calling, whether it’s revolutionary, evolutionary or problem solving. Determine, establish and come up with an idea of that you want to do. The bible says, "And the bay went forth, and sought to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he [God] said, Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth" Zechariah 6:7. What seek you for to do?

The red horses were impatient to be off because they understood what they’d to do - it was to patrol back and forth across the earth, and the Lord could not stop them.

Understanding the full picture behind your calling is important - know who and what you’re called for to do, and where, when and the why reasons for it. The reason for this is that your ministry will indirectly or directly affect lots of people. There will certainly be problems and annoyances also. But a good chariot is it that’s pulled by the spirit of God. The Holy Spirit is what makes your calling remarkable.

God bless,

Who are you following?

Each and every one of us will follow someone, however the person you follow will either lead you to fulfil your potential or will lead you to the wrong place.
Who are you following? A deaf-blind leader always lead someone into a ditch. Paul said, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5:1-2 
 He reminds us of who to follow and that person is none other than God himself who’s to lead you until you encounter his purpose and will. 
Following God will lead you to a new birth with Jesus, and life in the spirit. You never go wrong with his plan. But if you follow people they’ll lead you to all uncleanness; idolatry, covetousness and fornication. "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope..."Romans 8:20.

The office of a bishop!

"A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach." 1 Timothy 3:2
You got to tick all the boxes to be a bishop, not to tick tick the only one box that suits you most, but all. It‘s not enough only to be able to teach whilst you fail on the other aspects. A bishop must be blameless and beyond reproach, the husband of one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine, not a bully, but gentle, considerate, and free from the love of money. Now consider also your leader, if he/she can teach, but falls short on the other characteristics then you should know you’re both liable to falling into the devil’s trap. How will he/she take care of the church of God while ethically wrong?
Paul says, "These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, …

Why we go to church

Church is a place where the Lord your God has chosen to place his name there.

Moses said, thou shalt go there, "and worship before the Lord thy God" Deuteronomy 26:10.

You go to Church to worship the Lord, and to "rejoice in every good thing which the Lord thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house..." Deuteronomy 26:11. While there also you petition the Lord to bless you too.

Deuteronomy 26:16-19 says, "This day the Lord thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. Thou hast avouched the Lord this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice: And the Lord hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, a…
