THE WORST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYBODY IS TO BE IN A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN INFLUENCE DECISIONS AND SAY NOTHING.
GOD WILL PUT GOOD PEOPLE IN POLITICS AT THE RIGHT PLACES AND RIGHT POSITIONS SO THAT WHEN DEMONIC LEGISLATION IS BEING MADE AGAINST PEOPLE AND AGAINST THE CHURCH, PEOPLE CAN STAND UP AND SAY: “NO, THIS CANNOT BE!”
It is good to be up; that is the way to influence authorities positively.”
You can imagine a presidential decision and somebody is in the presidential council and the decision is about to be taken against his congregation and he stands up and say; “Mr President, I want to let you know publicly that, it is my people and my church you are talking about.” That was what Esther did; “It is my people they want to kill” and the king said, “except you are not from there; that is the only way they can kill your people. You alone have saved the whole people” – That is the power of influence.
That is why it is important to refuse to be on the floor; refuse to be on the ground because there may be a destiny you can change, there may be a community you can deliver, there may be a nation, a territory you can deliver by your being at the relevant place of influence and authorities.
There’s something God will use you to do that He couldn’t have done from outside.
That is why I believe that God will put good people in politics at the right places and right positions; positioning people at the right places in authority, so that when demonic legislation is being made against people and against the Church, people can stand up and say: “No, this cannot be!” And the worst thing that can happen to anybody is to be in a place where you can influence decisions and say nothing. It is the worst thing that can happen to anybody.
A person who got imprisoned because of his convictions is better than a person who is alive in cowardice. That was what Joseph of Arimathaea did; “You have crucified Jesus, He did you people nothing and now, what else do you want? I want His body.”
He went to Pilate (Matthew 27:57-58). The question is, where was Peter at that time? He has denied to the extent that he was somewhere crying.
Where is Judas Iscariot? He sold Him and went and hung himself. Where is Thomas? He’s doubting permanently. Everybody was on their own but this one who was a man of authority; a rich church member, a wealthy worker, a billionaire minister.
– You will never be poor!
– You will never be little!
– You will never be small!
You need to be in authority to speak to authorities. Godly influence is good. A Christian man gave me a cheque, he is not a member of this Church and they took the cheque to the bank and the bank returned the cheque. So, I drew his attention and said, the cheque you gave me was returned. He said, what?
So he printed his account balance and sent it. He said, this account is in eight zeros, cheque cannot bounce – current. He spoke to the MD of the bank, he said, “I will close that account now!” They begged and said, it is not from us, we are sorry. They said, “you know what, we’ll take draft there; tell us where to take it to.” Let the authorities send people to take draft to the recipient. He said, I would have closed the account today.” You know there are accounts that are not easily closeable, everybody involved in that transaction will be affected, including the manager.
I’m talking about stepping into a realm where you are not talking to the boys; you are talking to the boss.
Lift your right hand and say;
“I am going up and I must remain up; nothing can pull me down. I am influencing my generation positively and I will influence it from the top; I cannot be in the pit.”
– Somebody is going up!
