The Elijah List recently promoted a word from Kim Clement entitled “Obedience is the Mother of Success.” Since Elijah List re-titles “prophetic words” at will, I will not fault Kim for the new title . . . but this title really does reveal the heart of many of the people who follow this false move of God.
In Kim’s defense, we really should inquire of God before we move forward in our walk with God. He does speak truth there. However, one cannot expect to hear groundbreaking knowledge and direction from the Holy Spirit unless they can obey in some of the most basic things . . . for example, don’t lie, don’t commit adultery, serve God only . . . you know, Ten Commandment stuff.
Unfortunately, the Elijah List knows what appeals to the flesh of their following . . . phrases BOLDED on their site such as “The benefits to us are huge” and “each battle requires a fresh revelation/instruction. Never act on old revelation.”
Such phrases may (or may not) be true, however, perceived through the eyes of the selfish and carnal, they are always wrong as hell.
The best thing that we can do is go back to the Word, our solid foundation.
”For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.”
Such a simple revelation, not necessarily “FRESH,” but definitely tried and true.
I choose to obey Him because I love Him. How about you?
