7 Painful Gates Church Founders Go Through (A Must Read)

SEVEN PAINFUL GATES MOST CHURCH FOUNDERS GO THROUGH THAT THEY HARDLY TALK ABOUT.


Written By Irabor Wisdom Robinson (Bishop Answer's Assembly Warri)

It is always a thing of Joy to be Called by God to start a Church.
It is a great responsibility that ends with great rewards if well managed.
It is a Noble and a High Calling. Most people see the GAIN but don't see the PAIN.

Remember Jesus said I will build my church and the GATES of hell shall not prevail.

So there are gates that hell introduces against the church.
Not limited to the ones mentioned here.

This is not THEORETICAL!
This is PRACTICAL!

It is a product of a Practical Ministry.

1. THE GATE OF YOUR CALLING TO START A CHURCH BEEN MISUNDERSTOOD: Not everyone will accept the idea of you starting a church. You will be misunderstood by most people, sometimes people you honour and respect. Even your Spouse and Family members may not agree.

2. THE GATE OF THE FEAR OF STARTING AND SURVIVING: Anyone that is very happy at the thought of starting a church is a businessman who doesn't even know that starting a church makes you a lifetime enemy of the devil and his agents. It is a matter of life and death. Unless you are going to work for the devil. Have you not heard of THE SPIRIT OF OPEN AND CLOSE?

It is the spirit that makes people use their own hands to close what they opened with the same hands. Whether we like it or not, Churches close down on a regular basis. There are former Church Founders everywhere. THEY STARTED IT BUT COULD NOT SURVIVE IT.

3. THE GATE OF REJECTION AND ISOLATION BY YOUR FORMER CHURCH: Some members will take laws into their hands to avoid you.

See you as a rebel.

To them, the day you left our Spiritual Father is the day we also left you. To date, I still have people from my former Ministry who don't relate to me because I left.

But I am very matured to know the difference between a departure and a detachment. I did not detach, I have never detached and I will never detach. I only departed.

4. THE GATES OF 'NO MONEY TO RUN MINISTRY': Every big Ministry went through this gate. I heard Papa Adeboye shared the testimony of how the convention was to start and they needed to dig a Well to make water available for Worshippers to use during the program. God intervened by sending a Good Samaritan, who came and asked them what they were digging? On hearing from them, he decided to help sink a borehole.

That is the Great REDEEM WE SEE TODAY. REDEEM AND ORDINARY BOREHOLE! HOW COME? But is a GATE founder must go through.

This same Redeem that could not afford to dig a Well in the early days now gives people water for free through their various Taps positioned outside for public use.

5. THE GATE OF PEOPLE LEAVING YOU: No matter how well we teach loyalty, some people must go. The devil will enter some like Judas Iscariot or GOD WILL ALSO CALL SOME LIKE BARNABAS AND SAUL.

It was not the devil called Barnabas and Saul, It was the Holy Spirit.

Sometimes their Going is for your Growing. EVERY FOUNDER MUST KNOW WHEN A DEPARTURE IS A DELIVERANCE FOR THE HOUSE.

There are things an Assistant Pastor will not understand until he becomes a Founder. I VALUE PAPA MORE AFTER I LEFT WINNERS.

6. THE GATE OF FALSE ACCUSATIONS: Sometimes you hear stories about yourself, And you ask yourself, was it in your dream this thing happened?. If you are a Miracle Worker, you will be accused of using Charms and Occultic Powers.

 If you have so much money, you will be accused of being a member of a Secret Society. And if you have a crowd, they will say you have gone somewhere to collect Power.

 And if you are believing God for Fruit of the Womb, they will say you used your Manhood to get Influence and Power.

Let me also surprise you,  IF YOU ARE EVEN A FAILURE, THEY WILL SAY, IT  IS EITHER YOU LEFT GOD OR GOD LEFT YOU.
7. THE GATE OF MANAGING YOUR HOME AND YOUR MINISTRY: A Pastor can be as Great as PROPHET ELI and still can't explain how he produced in his own house, Sons of Perdition like Hophni and Phinehas.

Sometimes you are Mighty in Revelations, but can't explain how you went through a divorce with all your Revelations.

IF GOD HAS HELPED YOU TO FIND PROGRESS IN MINISTRY AND PEACE IN YOUR MARRIAGE WITH CHILDREN DOING WELL IN THE WAY OF THE LORD, PLEASE DONT ASK FOR ANY OTHER THING. YOU HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH.
