Leadership is about valuing others

Posted: November 27, 2017 in Leadership

Let’s put it this way, suppose you are to lead a group of prophetic people, but if you don’t value them, it would be tough for you to lead them, because that’s who they are “prophetic people”, not that they are perfect, but that would make it more tough for you to lead them.

And if you are to lead young people, but don’t value young people, that would make it tough for you to lead.

And suppose you are to lead a group of Indians, if you don’t value the Indians for who they are, you could probably be facing more tough times to lead them. Not that they are imperfect, but that it will probably make it more tough to lead them.

And there’s a difference between “valuing others” and “manipulation”, valuing others means that you value them as a person no matter how small or who they are, manipulation means that you act as valuing them so that you may control them, which could be part of a witchcraft spirit.

One of the main point is this, that we despise no one or look down on no one as a person, but value them as a person.

Christ made Himself nothing, by His own choice, not by force, He made Himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, THEREFORE God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name.

Beware of people who are after greatness and positions without the anointing, because Christ means the anointed one. And we are talking about humility, wisdom, and Governmental anointing.

Greatness to the world is not always the same greatness in the Kingdom. Jesus said, “Whoever wants to be great among you must be a servant”. Before Jesus was given the Highest name by God, He humbled Himself.

In the same way, humility is the Greatest, and wisdom is the highest rank of Governmental Anointing coming from heaven, they are like twins that stick together.

Proverb 11:2 says, “With humility comes wisdom”. And proverb says, “Wisdom is supreme therefore get wisdom”, wisdom is the highest rank of Governmental Anointing.

Whether it’s about leadership and authority, whether it’s about marriage, family, kids, or other things, it is important to read wisdom and revelations about them from people of wisdom and revelations, it is important to read the foundational teachings about them, and then we do our part. This is a really important thing to do.

God is humble, God is a person not a statue, God is Spirit, one of His great name is Humble, that’s who He is.

You are humble, you are gracious, you are kind, you are generous, you are loving, that’s who you are. You can say, “I am humble, I am kind, I am gracious, I am generous, that’s who I am, that’s who I am”. We are created in the image of God.

There are angels of wisdom and there are angels of humility. The spirit of humility is the angel of humility, and carries the anointing of humility, and with humility comes wisdom, they are like twin brothers. I’m releasing the humility anointing upon you today, and your life will be changed, You will see your life changed. – Apostle

2 main purposes of wisdom and revelations:

The first purpose of wisdom and revelations is that we would know God better, who He is. (Ephe 1:17)

The second purpose of wisdom and revelations is Kingdom ruling.

– Our Identities in Christ gives us Godly boldness and courage from our inner being, which doesn’t come out of any other outward sources or positions we hold on earth.

– When the enemy attack our worth and value in any form of ways, we remind him of our Identities in Christ that we are God’s beloved children.

– Our Identities in Christ are our weapon of warfare to fight against many enemies attack in our life, the Devil is defeated when we proclaim our Identities in Christ. In this world we all face all kinds of things, the enemy is there to attack us in many different forms of ways, spirit of condemnations, spirit of fear, shame, feelings of unvaluable or feeling unworthy, every kinds of lies the enemy attack us with, our Identities in Christ can destroy them, restore them, and can also protect us.

The truth is that, the enemy is not suppose to touch the child of the King in any form of ways.

– Being recognize itself might have no problem, but sometimes there is a possibility that some people can have so much needs of being recognize, which are unnecessary. They need others to recognize that they hold this and that positions, there are possibilities that there’s an Identities in Christ problem, it might not always be Identities in Christ problem either, but there are many great possibilities if that’s their worth and value.

– A need to perform before God and others can be born out of not being build up in our Identities in Christ, especially a need to perform before God. Our love for Him and our passion serve Him, not a need to perform.

Father identity

– Knowing our Identities in Christ helps us to approach God boldly and with confident, knowing He loves us so much, dearly loved and accepted by Him, it also helps us in our feeling and experiencing His presence.

– Knowing our Identities in Christ prevent us from putting our value on the positions we hold and other things. Holding positions doesn’t make us feel more valuable, and not holding positions doesn’t make us feel less valuable, because we are saturated in our Identities in Christ, precious and valuable, dearly loved by Him.

The positions you hold today are not your value and worth, they are your responsibilities not your Identities, your Identity is in Christ.

– Knowing our Identities in Christ makes us value others.

‘Vision animates, inspires, transforms purpose into action.’ – Warren Bennis

There is a famous quote that says, “Vision is not taught it is captured”, this is because vision is about people, it is capturing the heart of God. If any ministry is build without vision, it will probably be build through someone’s ambitious will rather than by the will of God and for the Advancement of the Kingdom. Even the structures of your ministry will come according to the vision God gave you.

Here are some other definitions and characters of visions we would love to give –

– Vision is seeing the world with the perspective of God,
– Vision is the ability to see the plans and wills of God.
– Vision is capturing the heart of God,
– Vision is Prophetic by nature,
– Vision is Apostolic by nature,
– Vision builds faith, courage, and boldness,
– Vision can take you beyond any challenge,
– Vision can capture the whole of your being,
– Vision is the ability to sacrifice what you would keep for yourself,
– Vision is sacrificial,
– Vision is inspiring and motivating,
– People with movements are people of visions,
– Visions serve the purposes of God,
– Visions with actions are what Advance the Kingdom of God,
– Pioneering leaders are people of visions,
– Vision must be the leading source of any ministry and organizations,
– People with visions build the Kingdom of God,

Mission and Visions:

Missions (Purpose) and Visions are the most important part of any ministry, both Mission and Visions can be imparted, Mission is the highlighted purpose, and there can be several visions in one mission (purpose) especially for visionaries. As Warren Bennis puts it, “Vision animates, inspires, transforms purpose into action”. And visions are what Advance the Kingdom of God.

It is important to work with people of the same Mission, same vision (vision is captured, visions can be imparted), same heart, not with people who would fight over your mission and vision, because vision is the most important thing of any ministry. Vision must be the central point of any Ministry, where all other activities are spread out.

Be careful not to work with people who would often fight over your vision, that person might need to leave your ministry, at the same time vision can be imparted and captured, people can be equipped, vision can be imparted through several ways, through seeing, through revelational preaching and teaching, equipping, practical actions, revelations from God, and Hearing the voice of God. Vision is like a driving force of a ministry and organizations, vision must be the food we eat in a ministry, and everything must revolve around the vision.

Both Mission (Purpose) and vision must be often shared, speak about, preach and teach, talked about, dream about, and be discussed in a ministry. People with vision or visionaries often shared about their visions naturally, it’s the food they eat, they dream, they think, they teach, they preach, they get revelations, their visions are what they speak about even while making friendships; we could say that 90% to 95% are what they speak about, everywhere they go they carry that vision including the mission (purpose) and often speak about them, especially their visions, because God has put them in their hearts. Even the structures of your ministries must come according to your visions God gave you. If a ministry structure is not build upon the revelations from the vision, it will lack it’s vision, and can become a ministry without vision.

Mission vision

Both Mission (purpose) and Visions can be imparted. Visions animates, inspires, transforms purpose into actions, and Advance the Kingdom of God.

Governmental Anointing:

Posted: November 2, 2015 in Leadership

If we read Proverbs chapter 8 in context, we can find that it is Wisdom speaking, verse 12 says “I WISDOM”, therefore it is Wisdom speaking about herself, who she is. So we can put it this way –

“By Wisdom kings reign,
And rulers make laws that are just.
By wisdom princes govern,
And all nobles who rule (all who rule Godly ruling)”,

(Proverbs 8:15-16)

Joseph’s Wisdom and Discernment:

Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has made all this known to you, THERE IS NO ONE SO DISCERNING AND WISE AS YOU. YOU SHALL BE INCHARGE OF MY PALACE, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you.”

So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt.”

(Gen 41:39-41)

Pharoah noticed the wisdom and discernment of Joseph and put him in charge of the whole country, and all the people to submit to his orders.

King Solomon’s Wisdom and Discernment:

There are some main gifts that the Governmental Anointing carries that we find in the Bible. King Solomon was one of the person that God greatly gave the Governmental anointing, Governmental anointing carries gift of wisdom and discernment.

You have asked for yourself wisdom and knowledge that you may rule My people over whom I have made you king, wisdom and knowledge have been granted to you. (2 Chro 1:11-12)

Behold, I have given you a wise and discerning heart (to govern) (1 Kings 3:12)

Now God gave Solomon wisdom and very great discernment and breadth of mind (1 Kings 4:29)

Solomon spoke 3,000 proverbs, and his songs were 1,005. ( 1 Kings 4:32)

8 Signs of Servant Leadership

Posted: October 28, 2015 in Leadership

First of all, Servant Leadership is important for all leaders and believers of Christ. In other words, Servant Leadership could be “Godly Leadership, Godly Authority, or Kingdom Leadership”, for servant leadership is the leadership style of Jesus, and the leadership style for the Kingdom of God.

Jesus said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant”. (Matt 20:25-26)

This 2 verses are highly related with Leadership and Authorities. If you recognize what Jesus said in this verse, “Not so with you”, by which Jesus mean, “That’s not the way to do”, “You must not do it that way, and this is the way to do”. So, if Jesus taught us how to rule, and if we are not to rule as the rulers of the Gentiles do, “What would be a servant ruler?”, we will be writing on that.

Even if we look at the world and history, both Christians and non Christians, those who exercise servant leadership are often called good rulers or great leaders, but those who don’t exercise servant leaderships were often called one of the worst terrible rulers in the world history. Therefore the leadership principles that Jesus taught us is a great principle for leadership and people in authority.

8 signs of servant leaders

Here are 8 signs of Servant Leadership:

1. Servant leaders doesn’t look for positions and titles: Unless for a purpose, to set things right, to make a Godly Government, to set people free from oppressions, slavery, or other purposes of God, servant leaders are not after titles or positions.

2. Servant leaders are not competitive with others.

3. Servant leaders admit it when they are wrong: Servant leaders don’t need to be always right, they are not perfectionist, they may sometimes even ask forgiveness to you when they are wrong.

4. Servant leaders value others: Servant leaders know that their leadership is to serve others, and their authority to serve others, not to mistreat or oppress people. They will not want to use their authority to oppress people or despise others. They are not the type of people who mock or despise anyone, to what we would call the least and the last.

There are times we need to use our authority strongly to set people free, to give liberty to people, just as Abraham Lincoln did. Abraham Lincoln was one of a good example for servant leadership, he got a desire to set people free who were abused, mistreated, oppressed, and in slavery.

5. Servant leaders are personable and approachable: When you need to talk to them or need to meet them, unless there are other cases, servant leaders are personable and approachable. Generally, most servant leaders you can call them friends.

Jesus said to His disciples, “I no more called you servants, I have called you friends”. (John 15:15)

6. Servant leaders are not legalistic: In the presence of servant leaders you can be who you are, they do not really care about what type of clothes you wear, your earrings, the designings, your hairstyles, and other unnecessary legalistic things. They often will not judge you by mere appearances.

7. Servant leaders are not judgmentals: In the presence of servant leaders, it doesn’t matter what color you are, black, white, brown or red, you can be who you are. It doesn’t matter what degree you have or not have, what positions you hold or not hold, what’s your background, what’s your past, where you came from, rich or poor, what’s your age, young or old,  what you wear, you can freely be who you are, for they are not judgmental.

8. Servant leaders value the Lordship of Christ: Servant leaders highly value the Lordship of Christ, and His will being done on this earth.
