Lesson 12: Why You Are Different
Lecturer: Apostle Colette Toach
Based on Chapter 02 of Practical Prophetic Ministry by Apostle Colette Toach
I think we can safely say that the prophet is somewhat different from ordinary believers. But what exactly makes you so different? Is it because you always seem to say the wrong things at the wrong time?
Is it because you cannot seem to settle and just accept things as others do? In the Practical Prophetic Ministry book I explain quite clearly what makes you so different, but let me outline some clear points for you to keep in mind.
Point 1: You are Discontented!
This is a reality for anyone called to the prophetic ministry. You are not content with the "way things are." You want it to be different! You are restless with a church that is happy to just stay the same and never grow. You are restless with programs. You are restless with the "same old church routine."
Point 2: You are a Warrior
If there is a victim around, you want to be the first to reach out and save them. If I want you to get on your soap box and start preaching up a storm all I need to do is remind you of the many believers that have been hurt in the church and who have broken lives.
A broken life lights the fire in you to get in there and DO something about it. As a result you get into trouble... but then again, it is what sets you apart!
Point 3: You just cannot swallow the line, "That is just the way things are"
You see things differently. You see what the Lord wants to do in the church and you want to be a part of it. You want to know WHY things are like they are! And then... to make matters worse (for the complacent ones around you) you want to change them!
Point 4: Normal, What's That?
If there is one thing you are NOT it is normal. And why should you be? You have a vision in your heart. You have a desire to change the church and you have a heart to heal the broken. There is nothing normal about that and thank the Lord for it.
