October 2020 Day 18- WHEN THE TWO PREACHERS FOUGHT: THERE IS SPACE FOR ALL!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: 1 CORINTHIANS 3:1-15
1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire
There was a state Of pandemonium in a market in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi, Ghana, as two self-styled evangelists were seen fighting for space to preach. The pastors who were very “passionate” about preaching the Word of God to the market women and passerbys began exchanging words after one of the pastors overtook the other to mount his equipment at the exact spot the other pastor preaches. Angered by the overtaking, the second pastor who was late to work could not fathom why his brother in Christ would “steal” his shine. The two then began jabbing each other which resulted in a hot exchange of blows. In a video, the two pastors who dragged the fight to the centre of the market managed to be separated by some men in the market.
WOW! of the end times! I know of two churches that use loud, audio, speakers to “fight” themselves because they use the same building on Sundays! Ah! Some ministers and even believers are doing God’s work for their stomach’s sake Many are now “motivational speakers” instead of preaching the pure GOSPEL of heaven!
As ministers of God are competing all over the world instead of complementing themselves, the Holy Ghost wants you to ponder over today’s devotional scripture:1 Corinthians 3:6 “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.” So, it’s not about Apollos or Paul personality worship! It’s not about your shouting oratorial skills on the pulpit! It’s not about using the word, “MIRACLE” to deceive the crowd. It’s about the LORD who gives the INCREASE! Note this: As the sky is too big for two stars to clash, the world is big enough for all of us to shine! Remember that every man s work shall be tried by fire in the end! May you not suffer loss!
Don’t forget that in the big ocean, two fishes do not collide Stop fighting or envying others when it is their season to shine! In your season, you will be unstoppable! I always pray for ALL ministers of God as they minister every Sunday, even though I am also facing my pulpit at the Manna Mountain, that same Sunday. Refuse to compete! There is No Church Or Ministry In Heaven! Pray for others! Your star will shine in your due season! Pray now! GO to your local church today!
