LASTING MINISTRY:: Simple and Spiritual vs Soulish and Sensual

Today most American ministries spread more sensual stimulation than obedience to revelation. I like to keep my ministry simple because we don’t need all this sensuality and appeal to the flesh to save souls. If you put too much sensual excellence in your ministry, people’s spirits will never really grow, because they are mainly trained to respond to soulish stimulation.

They’ll get excited for a while about how sensually appealing and excellent your “ministry” is, but I’ve learned over the years that when you appeal to the flesh – with too much arts & entertainment, oratory, performance, branding, and marketing – all people end up doing is going back to the flesh. Back to their sexy music, Back to their hip hop. Back to intellectualism and pride.  Back to their sexual desires. Back to video games, sports, and back to their entertainment.

Promote Jesus. Promote love, giving, and acts of service. Fasting, Prayer, and the Word are the only other tools we really need to promote in order to walk in the power of God and have FRUIT THAT REMAINS (John 15:16).

Ezekiel 33:31-33
31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as My people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.
32 And lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear thy words, but they do them not.
33 And when this cometh to pass — lo, it will come — then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.”

1 Corinthians 2

1 And I, brethren, when I came to you declaring unto you the testimony of God, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom.
2 For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
3 And I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling.
4 And my speech and my preaching were not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,
5 that your faith should not stand on the wisdom of man, but on the power of God.

2 Corinthians 1:12
For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

2 Corinthians 11:3
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
