Who is a man of God?
Is it a pastor?
Is it a G.O. ?
Is it a prayer warrior?
So who is a man of God?
1. A man of God is one who is born again of the spirit and of the word of God.
2. A man of God is one who has the Holy spirit in him and is being led by the Holy spirit .
3. A man of God is one who lives by God’s Vision and not his ambition.
4. A man of God may function in any of the five fold ministries and a man of God may not, as there are many who profess to be in the fivefold even perform several acts and yet aren’t men of God.
5. A man of God is a complete man! A man who can exercise dominion!
Anyone who does not have the holy spirit, who is not born again cannot be a man of God. This is because they are incomplete and cannot tap into the divine mandate predestined by God for man ~ dominion.
6. A man of God is one whose working vision is not necessarily big but is from God. I.e. they may not pastor a mega church, they may not head a big secular organization, they may not be handling a great office but their work is making a great impact because it is from the Lord.
When God visited Gideon in Judges 6, Gideon was merely threshing wheat, not preaching or laying hands. Yet God called him.
And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him, and said unto him, The Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valour. And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the Lord be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt? but now the Lord hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites. And the Lord looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee? And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house. And the Lord said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man.
Judges 6:12-16 KJV
7. A man of God is a soul winner!
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
2 Corinthians 5:17-21 KJV
Whether you’re in the fivefold ministry or not, everyone was given the ministry of reconciliation while the fivefold ministry was given to equip us for the ministry of reconciliation. Not for building up a megachurch but for reconciling people with christ, for helping us mature and stabilize in our pursuit God I.e. Perfection. See… 👇
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
Ephesians 4:11-16 KJV
We can’t exhaust this at once.
We’ll look more into it as time goes on.
Remain blessed and understand that you, if you’re truly saved and baptized with the holy spirit and being led by His spirit; You are a man of God! Represent Him well!
