Leadership wakeup alarm
Hosea 5:10 -
The princes of Judah were like them that remove the bound: therefore I will pour out my wrath upon them like water.
Near the end of Jan this year I was told by the Lord to confront the Pastor of the Church I go for fellowship. It was nothing personal against him but it was a matter concerning the whole Pentecostal Church this Church is part of. I was given a message to give if they do not listen or change the Lord will put a string through its nose and bring it to path.
When I went to give the message I myself was not aware it was going to affect it so drastically. But just this last Sunday the Word was broken by one of the senior most of this Church and in the breaking of the Word he via scriptures landed giving out the depth of the problems which were happening among the top leaders. All are literally on their knees praying to the Lord to sort this problem, but wouldn't it have been wiser to walk in the Word of the Lord then to deviate and latter get on the knees, when the Lord takes account of it.
In the session he disclosed there were 3 others who approached him personally and also warned him of the problem long before it started. In the vision the Lord gave me He had already disclosed the result of this crisis. The result was good but there was had change of people and structure.
This Pastor works on a global level and the one thing he shared which was a wake up to all was the figure he gave about leadership failures. He put the figure at 92 percent. In the current scenario only 8 percent of the leaders successfully and effectively run Churches, this is a wakeup alarm to us.
Since a few years many top leaders of different believer ministries and Churches have and are seeing a serious shaking of their leaders. This is not the devil at work but the Lord Himself doing the shaking. In this shaking all that is of the Lord will stand and not of the Lord will be leveled.
Since the last few months I have less gone out to preach to the people but have concentrated mainly on the Pastors, Evangelist, Teachers etc. those who work in the vineyard of the Lord.
Before the Lord shows His glory to the world He wants to make sure those who represent Him have a standing with Him. So if you are a leader or worker in Kingdom of God, you may not be a scholar or have the full understanding of the Word (no man does) but the Lord will see if you have set your heart right with whatsoever little you know of His Word.

[ Reference Scriptures ]
29 Jesus answered, "The first is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one;
30 and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.'
31 The second is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."
32 And the scribe said to him, "You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that he is one, and there is no other but he;
33 and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices."
34 And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." And after that no one dared to ask him any question.
7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye multiplied more than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in my statutes, neither have kept my judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that are round about you;
8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, am against thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee in the sight of the nations.
9 And I will do in thee that which I have not done, and whereunto I will not do any more the like, because of all thine abominations.
10 Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee, and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments in thee, and the whole remnant of thee will I scatter into all the winds.
11 Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity.
12 A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.
13 Thus shall mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I the LORD have spoken it in my zeal, when I have accomplished my fury in them.
14 Moreover I will make thee waste, and a reproach among the nations that are round about thee, in the sight of all that pass by.
15 So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction and an astonishment unto the nations that are round about thee, when I shall execute judgments in thee in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I the LORD have spoken it.
16 When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread:
17 So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave thee; and pestilence and blood shall pass through thee; and I will bring the sword upon thee. I the LORD have spoken it.
