avoid-pitfalls-300x217THE ELIJAH PITFALL

The prophet Elijah walked in a very powerful prophetic gifting. He was a man of prayer and a man of great faith. He demonstrated a determination of purpose in his calling and a willingness to put his life on the line to prove that he served the one true God. All of the qualities were demonstrated as he stood alone and confronted the prophets of Baal:

At the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet came near and said, “O Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, today let it be known that You are God in Israel and that I am Your servant and I have done all these things at Your word. “Answer me, O Lord, answer me, that this people may know that You, O Lord, are God, and that You have turned their heart back again.” Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt offering and the wood and the stones and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, “The Lord, He is God; the Lord, He is God.” Then Elijah said to them, “Seize the prophets of Baal; do not let one of them escape.” So they seized them; and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there. (1 Kings 18:36-40)

It would be easy to assume that a prophet of such power would not have character flaws. Yet when Jezebel made threats to kill Elijah he fled into the wilderness and complained to God. Elijah become so depressed that he asked God to take his life.

Now Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and even more, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.” And he was afraid and arose and ran for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree; and he requested for himself that he might die, andsaid, “It is enough; now, O Lord, take my life, for I am not better than my fathers               (1 Kings 19:1-4)

Then Elijah descended into self-pity, saying he was the only prophet left. God later told him that he was not the only one, but that God had 7,000 prophets who had not forsaken His covenant.

Then he came there to a cave and lodged there; and behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” He said, “I have been very zealous for the Lord, the God of hosts; for the sons of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, (1 Kings 19:9-10)

Lessons from Elijah

Elijah was a mighty prophet of fire and power. Yet at the very peak of prophetic ministry he plunged into discouragement, resentment, self-pity, a persecution complex and bitterness.

Discouragement – the initial stage, happens when people do not understand or receive our prophetic ministry.

Resentment – It the result when we allow ourselves to feed upon discouragement. We begin to elevate ourselves by continual criticism of others.

Self-pity/persecution – Nothing works out. Satan is always attacking me. Where is God? I am the only one speaking the truth. Other ministries just don’t get it.

Bitterness – A hard and critical spirit. Rejection is compensated for by controlling others. Inflated sense of self-importance and will become angry if questioned.

If you like this quick lesson on “Pitfalls”, let me know.  We can learn from the prophets of old like Jonah, Peter, David and others.  They are just like us, human.  Want to learn more?

 

How Training the Trainers is Kingdom Multiplication

Hey guys,

Brent Engelman here with The Prophetic Training Online.  I’m sitting in my office with a video playing, Facebook open, my email “dinging” and my cell phone ringing (well, vibrating off the table).  Thank God for the coffee and water to keep me going.

Why all the excitement?  It’s pretty amazing.  Last night I did a webinar training for a small group of hungry people who wanted to better recognize the intimate voice of God.  Honestly, I’m still a bit groggy from only 5 hours of sleep.

TTT1I call this small group the MasterMind Group.  I’m simply training the trainers.  Now that sounds simple.  However, I pre-interviewed each person who registered for the MasterMind group for the Prophetic Training Online School.

Every person that joined the MasterMind Group had one KEY element in place that I was looking for.  What was it?  They all wanted to get equipped in order to equip others.  Pretty simple right?

I  have been doing LIVE webinar trainings for over 4 years now, with one of the largest online Prophetic Training audiences in the world.  I’ve had the privilege and honor of interviewing amazing men and women of God.  People like Todd Bentley, Joan Hunter, Larry Randolph and more.  Last night, everything changed.

Now I see the future of online training for ministry.  Taking a few hungry people and training them to equip others is powerful.  The kingdom is full of multiplication.  Jesus multiplies food, bread and fish.  He multiplies wine, His first miracle.  And mostly, Jesus multiplied Himself in 12 disciples who would go to transform the world.

Training the Trainers is not just a good idea, it’s the model Jesus gave us to advance His kingdom on earth.  So what’s next?  I can tell you that I’m already receiving messages to do another MasterMind group.  We had a cost of $297 for the 3 week school.  I understand that investments make things exclusive and prohibitive at times.

I’m working really hard to create a MasterMind Group for the masses.  One where the average person can easily afford and jump in with both feet and no reservations.  Look for it soon.

So, I’m teaching last night on the Foundations of the Prophetic.  I’ve taught in front of hundreds before.  However, the “pull” on the anointing was stronger with just four.  Why?  The hunger was one thing.  The other?  This group paid a price which in turn caused them to pay the ultimate price.  PAYING ATTENTION.

You could have heard a pin drop as the Holy Ghost moved mightily.  At one point the glory was so heavy, the students raised their hands and dipped their hands in what they described as electric-life-honey.  Sounds yummy huh?

Right now, raise your hands, or a hand.  I declare the same glory is upon you as your read this.  There is a new reality of the Kingdom of God, which is now “at hand”, according to Christ Jesus.  Now you are being filled with the goodness, revelation and light of Christ, who dwells in you.  The kingdom of God is truly at your hands, even at your fingertips.

Imagine being equipped by some of the world’s leading teachers, prophets, evangelists, apostles, and pastors all from your computer.  If you’re reading this on any device right now, you have the tools to succeed!  Wow…

10689636_835166796528267_973474270017300982_nOk…  I need your help.  What would it look like to get equipped in order to equip others to better recognize the intimate voice of God? If your desire matches up with this key element, then I want you to consider enrolling in the New Bern School of Supernatural Ministry Online or NBSSMO.
