The Power Of Serving Under A Vision: Sermon By Prophetess Janet Sospeter
Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment. Therefore he who resists and sets himself up against the authorities resists what God has appointed and arranged [in divine order]. And those who resist will bring down judgment upon themselves [receiving the penalty due them].
For civil authorities are not a terror to [people of] good conduct, but to [those of] bad behavior. Would you have no dread of him who is in authority? Then do what is right and you will receive his approval and commendation. For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, [you should dread him and] be afraid, for he does not bear and wear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant to execute His wrath (punishment, vengeance) on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God’s wrath and escape punishment, but also as a matter of principle and for the sake of conscience.
For this same reason you pay taxes, for [the civil authorities] are official servants under God, devoting themselves to attending to this very service. Render to all men their dues. [Pay] taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, and honor to whom honor is due. Keep out of debt and owe no man anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor [who practices loving others] has fulfilled the Law [relating to one’s fellowmen, meeting all its requirements].Romans 13:1-8 (AMPC)
God calls an ordinary man and gives him a vision. The vision becomes the vessel which the believer accesses his destiny.
The vision is supposed to carry you into your destiny. The vision speaks into what God has ordained in the life of a believer.
The vision of God is eternal. It is spiritual and can’t be seen with physical eyes.
The vision establishes you into what you are called by God.
When you got saved, God brought you to a vision. The vision carries your inheritance.
When you come to a vision, ensure you’ve discerned it spiritually. Otherwise, you will struggle.
The vision does not need help, it needs human connection. You can’t interact with the vision without connecting with the man carrying the vision.
God-given vision is spiritual. You can only understand it when you are spiritually positioned.
When you come to a vision, let your spiritual eyes be opened to know what it carries for you.
Names denote character.
INFEMI is ordained in the spirit to raise learned young people to position them to places they can never go with their degrees.
When you leave the place of vision, you have no divine covering.
Inheritance and legacy are two different things. Legacy is spiritual. It outlives the inheritance. Anybody can leave an inheritance but it takes revelation to leave a legacy.
When you leave the place of vision, you will face things that will change the image of God in you.
The place of vision is the place of supernatural grace.
Vision is a place of restoration.
He went up from there to Bethel, and while he was going up on the way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him, saying, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” And he turned around, and when he saw them, he cursed them in the name of the Lord. And two she-bears came out of the woods and tore forty-two of the boys. From there he went on to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria.2 Kings 2:25 (AMPC)
The destiny of Elisha was tied to the vision of Elijah. Unless you serve another, you can never have your own vision.
Giving is more about the heart than what the mouth speaks.
You cannot benefit from an anointing that you do not honour.
God is looking for hearts that are clean and sincere.
Jesus did not have vision, God did.
If you are faithful, God will download everything you need from the vision into you.
God wants your faithfulness and service unto Him to be like the rising of the sun. Faithful people don’t replace the hour of your service with another activity.
Before honour, there must be humility. When there is humility, honour is given willingly.
God will give you a name because of your faithfulness. God gave Jesus a name when He lifted Him up. Your humility will give you a position of prominence.
People who rule in the spirit are the only people who will be able to survive in these last days.
If you can’t serve man, you can’t serve God.
He who is faithful in a very little [thing] is faithful also in much, and he who is dishonest and unjust in a very little [thing] is dishonest and unjust also in much.Luke 16:10 (AMPC)
If you are not faithful in the little, God will not entrust you with a lot.
Faithfulness is the bridge between small and great. It’s the gap between insignificant and significant.
When God places you in a vision, focus on Him.
You can’t operate in authority if you are not under authority.
Paul, an apostle (special messenger) of Christ Jesus by appointment and command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus (the Messiah), our Hope. To Timothy, my true son in the faith: Grace (spiritual blessing and favor), mercy, and [heart] peace [be yours] from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
As I urged you when I was on my way to Macedonia, stay on where you are at Ephesus in order that you may warn and admonish and charge certain individuals not to teach any different doctrine, nor to give importance to or occupy themselves with legends (fables, myths) and endless genealogies, which foster and promote useless speculations and questionings rather than acceptance in faith of God’s administration and the divine training that is in faith (in that leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence)— Whereas the object and purpose of our instruction and charge is love, which springs from a pure heart and a good (clear) conscience and sincere (unfeigned) faith. But certain individuals have missed the mark on this very matter [and] have wandered away into vain arguments and discussions and purposeless talk.
They are ambitious to be doctors of the Law (teachers of the Mosaic ritual), but they have no understanding either of the words and terms they use or of the subjects about which they make [such] dogmatic assertions. Now we recognize and know that the Law is good if anyone uses it lawfully [for the purpose for which it was designed], knowing and understanding this: that the Law is not enacted for the righteous (the upright and just, who are in right standing with God), but for the lawless and unruly, for the ungodly and sinful, for the irreverent and profane, for those who strike and beat and [even] murder fathers and strike and beat and [even] murder mothers, for manslayers, [for] impure and immoral persons, those who abuse themselves with men, kidnapers, liars, perjurers—and whatever else is opposed to wholesome teaching and sound doctrine.1 Timothy 1:1-10 (AMPC)
Timothy’s vision was tied to Paul. When you are under a vision, your success is not dependent on other things.
God wants your spiritual prosperity to carry the wealth you have.
The place of dominion is in the vision.
You compete with people because you do not know who you are.
Wealth was made for service and worship.
You will never be rich until you have the mindset of eternity.
A vision will teach you how to walk this walk of faith. What you embrace in the spirit, you manifest on earth.
God is calling INFEMI to reconnect to the place of vision. When you serve a vision, you become fruitful in everything you do.
Moses served his father-in-law in the wilderness until God revealed Himself to Him. God wants us to serve until we interact with Him.
How to catch the spirit of the house is by interacting with honour in your heart. Honour is an attitude of the heart.
