Church membership is a working of the Holy Spirit and it is God that sets members in His Body as He pleases. There are some very flaky positions that people take when it comes to church and that is why God’s destiny programme doesn’t happen in their lives.
You can’t be a member of two churches just as you can’t be a member of two families. You simply can’t be! As soon as you are in one church, you are no longer a member in another or you are in space. This issue is a serious issue with God.
In every congregation, some people are true and true members, there are borderline members and there are non-members. You will notice that anywhere in the world, strong nations, strong families, and strong churches all have a strong sense of identity. In Israel, the Jews are bold about their Jewish identity. They have been claiming that identity for more than 5,000 years in the world. They never allow any culture to assimilate them.
One of our reasons for being weak in Nigeria is that an average Nigerian is ashamed of the Nigerian identity. One of my older pastors encountered something some time ago and sent me a text wondering where he had been all these years. He said he just caught the revelation of the father-and-son truth and he started confessing all the covenants in the house. He knew the truth about confession but he never took those things seriously. When you begin to function as a colleague to your father, you have cut your inheritance away and you will begin to fight on your own.
PRAYER: Father, open my eyes to see and understand where you have planted me in your Body. Thank you Holy Spirit for leading me there.
