People who are gifted can move in miracles but friends of God can feel His heart (plus they move in miracles). 

People who are gifted may be able to „read“ people but friends of God have a burden that they have a hard time to frame in words.

Gifted people can create a good following, but friends of God have a prophetic edge that speaks to the depths of who people are

Friends of God have been corrected and molded by God time and time again and grown as a result of it, they stood the test through the fire of adversity that God has allowed to be brought into their lives, and came out with a faith that is developed to move mountains. Maturity is the result, the faith wasn’t developed through the affliction or the rejection itself, but because the time during the affliction was spent well in strengthening yourself in Gods unconditional love, prayer, meditation, immersion in scripture and soul winning.

God´s correction cuts off a few leaves so that you can bear even more fruit, that’s why you never run from it. Only people who believe that God is not good would run from it. 

Friendship with God helps you to develop your personal anointing as well as your ministry anointing, and how to „handle“ it and flow in it. the result is tremendous confidence in how God uses you and what He has called you to do, without trying to constantly look left and right what the newest and most hip thing in the church is.

Being led by the Spirit is now the lifestyle, as the Holy Spirit partners with your intuition as you walk as a Son of God in a very dark age.

I personally believe that the man and the message need to be one. Whenever God uses me to minister in that vain I can hear about half of the people say „Shut up“ and the other half „He is on to something here“

Pastors who were afraid of their own people in their entire ministry career begin to understand now that the seeker sensitive churches have failed - and the lost aren’t taking the bait - and they never have. Christians have NEVER been authentic by trying too hard to be. Modern religion within current Christianity doesn’t look like ties and suits, but it looks like hipster jeans, cafe latte, apologizing for too much bible and trying to be accepted everywhere. 

We have told them that they can drink a couple beers right after the service - it’s fine because God doesn’t worry so much about conduct - it started in the name of liberty but soon we took it too far, they wouldn’t lay the bottle down again and the change in their hearts now isn’t evidenced by fruit even in many years. The time will come again in which transformation and change is the hall mark of the gospel again because it needs to be and because the Holy Spirit will breath on it in a fresh way


„You yourselves are our letter of recommendation (our credentials), written in your hearts, to be known (perceived, recognized) and read by everybody.

You show and make obvious that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, not written with ink but with [the] Spirit of [the] living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

Such is the reliance and confidence that we have through Christ toward and with reference to God.

Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power and ability and sufficiency are from God.

[It is He] Who has qualified us [making us to be fit and worthy and sufficient] as ministers and dispensers of a new covenant [of salvation through Christ], not [ministers] of the letter (of legally written code) but of the Spirit; for the code [of the Law] kills, but the [Holy] Spirit makes alive.“

2 Cor 3:2-6 (AMPC)
