Facebook live Vrs Church
I have taken time to studied what happens in the media this days especially Facebook.
I love the fact that the gospel is been promoted on Facebook everyday even at midnight when you pick your phone and go online you will see people there preaching or doing something about God. It is encouraging and loving. I am always happy when that happens.
But I want to use this opportunity to advice a young preacher who is just growing up in the faith or ministry, Facebook live is not a CHURCH and Church is not FACEBOOK LIVE.
Yes is true the gospel is been preached through the media to people even some you don’t even know them but the truth is we young ministers must learn from our father’s who took the lead.
Their interest is the lost Souls and the church growth. So they took time and study on how to empty the world and filled the church so when you go to the churches they are pastoring you can testify of the hard work they are doing and you can know this is grace at work…..
But we the young ministers of today are competing with the number of likes and views on social media and our interest is not the lost or even church growth but our interest is CAN I PROPHESY!!!
I am not against PROPHESY because I am used in that as well but when we makes it everyday can I PROPHESY???
Where we come live on Facebook three times a day and what we do is not to lead this generation to christ by the word we preach and the strategies we learned from our fathers but our interest is to PROPHESY to get the number and get the likes…..
But when given 5 people physical as church members they can’t manage them and we thought we have arrived….
The sad thing is we end the broadcast with a prophecy not leading people to Christ…. Well I was once like you until a brother called me and said what is the essence of prophesying deep like you just did without leading people to Christ??
It was a BIG QUESTION that change my thinking and mentality. From that day forward I start to do that unless is a church prayer time where I know is for church members and I know no unbeliever is part…..
The most DANGEROUS GENERATION IS THIS GENERATION ….. CAN I PROPHESY GENERATION!!
I did a study and I realised that is we the youth who are on Facebook saying can I prophesy but our fathers are busy building and preparing their church members for the master second coming…..
We have to go back to the basics……
Every young man or woman who is on Facebook here prophesying should be given a local church to grow and build as well…. Because Facebook live is not a church….
As matter of fact you’re preaching to other men of God members and they are accountable of their memebers not you…..
Don’t get fulfilled when you get 1k,2k,5k or 10k viewers or following at a time…..
Get fulfilled when the church is grown to a level where everyone knows Jesus and who they are and everyone is busy serving and even when Papa or Mama is not around your absence is not felt…..
Let’s gather information about how to empty the world and fill the church…. Let’s gather information about church growth and the health of church members because one day we will give accounts of them….
No one is called to Facebook live even though is a tool God gave us to easily facilitate our assignment lets not stop there….
Let’s learn from our father’s…. They did it we can do it also….
When you go back to those days……. our fathers used to empty the world and keep multiplying the church everyday….
Churches like pentacost, presby, baptist, Catholic just to mention but few wouldn’t have been in existence if the fathers were doing only something like social media live…..
The revival will have been far away…..
Let’s get back to work…..
I AM NOT AGAINST FACEBOOK LIVE…… I THANK GOD FOR THIS BECAUSE IS A PROPHESY FULFILLED BUT LET’S NOT FORGET OUR CALLING. And my ministry uses this medium very well…..
Just a word to my fellow colleagues….
