March 3, 2021 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – WAYS TO ENTER INTO COVENANT EXPERIENCE – Genesis 48:13-22
There are two ways you enter the two covenant levels:
- The general covenant: the general way is through salvation; be born again. If you are not born again, you have no access to this covenant.
- The special covenant: respond to the demands of God on your life and that will qualify you for the sacrifice that brings special covenants.
As a pastor, when I pray for our church members every year, I stand before the Lord and say, “Father, I have carried the calling for this number of years and I have served you and laboured. Let that labour be transferred to the account of the members of Dream Centre.”
When Jacob was praying for the sons of Joseph, he said, “The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them” (Gen. 48:16). It means whatever he is before heaven will be transferred to their account.
I feel in the past few years, the Body of Christ had been under the assault of greed by ministers that want to be bigger than God allows them. When your growth overtakes your leadership development, you will need leaders in a hurry and cut down the process of producing them.
What Jacob did for the sons of Joseph is what every wise, intelligent, and tutored-by-the-Holy-Ghost pastor should be doing for their members. So that when you go to work on Monday, God does not only see you, He also sees the labour, sacrifice, and the integrity of your pastor.
PRAYER: I am a covenant inheritor; I walk in the manifestation of the covenant carried by my apostolic joint in the Kingdom in Jesus’ name. Amen!
