REVIVALISTS AND THE LOCAL CHURCH
I believe that the measure in which God will favor traveling evangelists and prophets and make them successful is in direct proportion to their attitude towards the local church. (And how you measure success is not by how many followers you have, but what impacting you are making, life-change and so on.)
If you don’t understand and respect the authority of the local Pastor, then you are not in the will of God.
NEVER SEE MAN AS YOUR SOURCE WHEN IT COMES TO FINANCES FOR THE HARVEST
The main reason why I was never offended when they gave me very little for ministering to them and also unimpressed when they gave me a lot is because it is impossible to finance me anyways. It will surely result in a great blessing for people when they can get involved with what God is doing but no one is really capable of funding the vision God has laid on my heart. (This is also one of the reasons why I will never charge a conference fee when organizing an event, besides the fact that it isn’t biblical).
So, then you are a person that cannot be bought who sees God Himself as the only source of his provision, Jesus Christ - your beloved employer and CEO - because the only thing that matters in your life is to be involved in Gods great quest to see mankind saved and restored. Gods provision flows inevitably into what He is doing in the present.
